    The Republican Party has simply become a CULT.

    Back in the 50’s, a person who had a decent job used to be able to buy a new car, a house, and live comfortably. Now, a person working two jobs can barely afford to get a used car and rent a small apartment. And if you have kids, well, you’re just lucky to survive.

  3. GEORGIA VOTE WARNOCK x OSSOFF . God bless America and Democracy!

    • I hear you. What difference will you saying this make though? just shouting something out into the wind convinces nobody, me thinks. Just a thought.

    History will show that Donald Trump was the first potus who used Twitter as a complaints department on a daily basis and soaked it in his tears 😂

  5. The neo-seditionists should be expelled from congress. There should be dire consequences for those who would upend Democracy for political/financial gain. They are traitors

  6. “I’m gonna litigate this for years”. Biggest loser ever. Fighting against reality is the stupidest thing this administration has done to date. And that in itself is astounding and horrifying.

  7. OMG – Joshua, thank you for this informative and insightful report, without being a fear-monger. Well done, sir.

    Roll on the 20 January 21, To get that loser out of the White house. STAY SAFE


  11. This guy is what news should be!

  12. These seditious clowns aren’t honest, well meaning or uninformed, so we’re left with the lock them up.

    • No, but some of their voters probably are. Tens of millions of Americans have been let down by an educational system that is inferior to that of Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and even Israel. These people were looking for answers in all the wrong places and got sucked into a cult-like movement.

  13. Wow. I hadn’t seen this guy before, but he is a great anchor.

    Where I disagree with the founders is that some people run headlong towards misleading information. There is a hunger to be deluded that can no longer be dismissed. Refusing to acknowledge hard facts requires consequences.

  15. History: “We will not be kind to t’rump and his attacks on democracy.”
    t’rump supporters: “Joke’s on you nerds! We don’t read history!”
    History: 🤦

  16. Prayer up Americans🙏💯📿🗽

    Hear, hear!

  18. Kindness. Such a Novel Idea! 🤔 💡🤣

    When GOP say they wanna “protect elections” that means = keep BIPOC from voting.
