  1. You figure a fox viewer is only fed certain info, thats why they in the dark. But you cant see these types of stories and still follow such trash.

    1. Even if they showed that video they would just talk over the truth with their propaganda and tell everyone what they are looking at even if it’s not what they are looking at. Have you seen the utter demonic thrust of everything going on with these fascists ? They have Supreme Court justice’s peeing in their panties for fear of their lives and / or reputations.

    2. @Sandore Bussolini Fox News is propaganda. MSNBC is political news. The truth hurts doesn’t it?

  2. Jordan can just look at his phone and it will give he dates and times of calls he made and received. Surprised he didn’t think of that.

    1. @Js Travelers You’re not schooled in technology….they can retrieve deleted msgs.
      I hope he txtd too.
      They can see those too.
      His stammering says it all.

    2. Maybe he should say he had no clue he was supposed to remember what they talked about. Just like another gov’t official knew zero about email protocols but still supposedly was more knowledgeable about SOP’s than opponents at any level. Maybe Trump should be allowed to embed an investigator in the prosecution’s pool of peons. Seems fair since the other side had an embedded FBI agent in his campaign and then still cried when he won. Don’t forget that same crying side had already rigged their own primary and got caught. Ask Debbie Wasserman Schultz, she’ll tell you.

    3. @Nunya Bizness Would you rather talk about the horrible scandal that occurred on August 28, 2014, when Obama wore a tan suit?

  3. I have actually found that commonsense is like a flower that doesn’t grow in everybody’s garden !

    1. @Belzedar ! That deserves a HUGE kudos, and I hope you got a handsome bonus for the ton of money you saved the co/corp. I’m sure you’re satisfied with the lesson learned along with your great & important contribution, but still… .



    1. @Eddie Gesch He has decency and is realistic makes rational decisions, he is not mongering hate against his opponents and he is respected by the majority of the Americans.

    2. @Wassily Kandinsky not adolph Biden. You must be a good MSM puppet. Definitely not respected by the majority of Americans either.

    3. @Eddie Gesch You don’t like that he is respected by the majority of Americans? It’s a fact.

    1. @Mr Pickles says a Jim Jones kool aid drinker . “Don’t take the vaccine that saves lives!” cope harder

    2. @Mr Pickles “don’t take the vaccine that saves lives! Join my death cult instead! Q!” . So delirious in doublethink

  4. Now you know who they really support. Only when it’s convenient for them they support the police. Hypocrites!

    1. @Richard Hallett this sounds like a copy and pasted recap of someone who claimed to have watched the videos, but didn’t. Clearly we weren’t watching the same footage.

    2. @Richard Hallett Video link or this is fake news. And even if it is real, did the video catch the context any such incident? Also, any crowd of thousands, carrying that many Trump flags, blue line flags, and flags of Trump’s face on the American Flag (flag desecration) — yep, that make it 90% of all those insurrectionists Trump supporters, with the rest supporting these one to five votes per precinct far far rightists.

    3. @Steve Mausehardt No. Also, it wasn’t Democrats at the violent 2020 protests. It was extremists from far Left and Right. They don’t represent Democrats. Also, BLM did try to protest peacefully. Why aren’t Black people allowed to quietly protest? They were ignored and then the cops declared their peaceful assembly a riot. Meanwhile, Right Wing agitators from mutiple hate groups all over the U.S. sabbotaged the message of BLM. Learn to observe details in videos you see so that they don’t have to be explained to you.

    4. @Richard Hallett That’s because those videos were probably faked, recorded at a different riot, or from a different COUNTRY. Conservatives are dishonest and will edit random stuff together to convince you of what they want you to believe.

      Why would BLM or Antifa even be at the Capitol on January 6th? They weren’t angry about the results of the election, YOU crybabies were.

  5. In every age the vilest specimens of human nature are to be found among demagogues.

    — Thomas Macaulay, The History of England from the Accession of James II (1849)

    1. You’re 100% right that’s why they said voter identification was racist and suppressed voters with Jim Crow laws.

    2. @Scotty Porter You have things a bit backwards…Jim Crow laws ARE racist and suppressive. If you don’t agree, you are not interested in fair elections. That would make you a white supremacist.

  6. “Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth.” – Albert Einstein.

    1. Do you think it’s a little odd a poll was conducted and both democrat and republicans voters are overwhelmingly in favor for photo verifications laws.

    2. @Scotty Porter Nope, that makes total sense. I think everyone wants a fair election. Except those that need to cheat to win.

    3. Oh yes.yes I have seen this especially in african dictatorships..look at Maga and Their Trump. It’s a sickness

    4. @Soleil M No, look to the corrupt left and their divisive propaganda and totalitarian Fascist behavior. They control the media and the fools that believe it to be truth.

    5. I don’t care if is dems or republicans most and i do mean most polititions don’t give a rats a$$ about us we are a means to keep them in power and rich. This is about good vs evil. Freedom or control?

  7. He sounds nervous. He’s gonna have to make a choice to lie to Congress & risk is career & freedom or tell the truth. He’s gonna find out trump isn’t gonna lie for him.

  8. they made time for the bengazi hearings …. and yet they could not jail anybody like they wished. this time the table is turned and they just show us the cowards they really are !

  9. Their families must be so ashamed of them. Their future ancestors are going to be embarrassed by them. Disgusting

    1. Agree with you that they should be ashamed, but suspect most are getting support from their families.

  10. Wasn’t the theme of the RNC this past election “law and order”? They have a funny way of showing it !

    1. peaceful protests without weapons is what the RNC practices. seems like they hit the high water mark of adherence in this one, but they still had an unarmed registered republican vet murdered at point blank range.

    2. @Sandore Bussolini The ‘vet’ was in the act of criminal B & E on federal property.
      Christopher Alberts and Guy Reffitt were caught with guns and arrested. More to come when DOJ completes analyzing of vids, pics, and texts. A lot of guilty not sleeping well, waiting for that early morning knock with warrants. Hope it is at 1:06 am.

    3. @Sandore Bussolini There were weapons; they were confiscated by Capitol Police and anyone found with a gun on federal property was arrested.

    4. @Just A Wave weapons ? you mean a cell phone with a camera ? a pen to keep an account of what was happening ? A finger pointing at an object ? C’mon …

  11. Jordan makes hillbillies look bad, while he brags about how much Trump loves him and talks to him.

  12. fox news commentators are despicable – they are the last people to talk about ‘theatrics’ – when you don’t have
    truth/substance in your rhetoric what do you do?
