    1. A simple question Jim Jordan could have ask Dr. Fauci is how much your life has change since the pandemic.

    2. @MJF There are many like you but these clueless Republicans will just keep being dumb and ignorant in their Trump love and right wing channel lies and disinformation that they will alienate and disillusioned more and more Republicans to change to independent or dem voters that won’t vote for them. In the end, no matter how much voter suppression laws they try to implement they will still lose the election, bigly!

    3. @Atlus Avalon Why is LHXincoln project still well and very much alive? Because more and more Republicans are turning against your Trump loving and Qnon conspiracy lies.

    4. @Harrison C What’s your proof other than the concocted lies and disinformation you got from your right wing news channel? No reliable channel all over the world have reported this. Just lies and disinformation as well as Qnon conspiracies that your right wing nuts love to absorb to keep your delusional self. ALSO, why has your darling Turmp still not announce his 2024 candidacy? Why has he not done any rallies as he said he would? And where is his touted social media? . That is what Turmp is, all talk and lies, no substance. And furthermore, he is short on cash that he can’t even repair his own airplane. And no more govt money to support his rallies and donations probably came up short as well. Not enough to pay his lawyers and not enough to pay for rallies. A BIG LOL!

  1. It’s about time this high school play come to end. People are not amused anymore…Liars, cheats, and phonies.

    1. @WARRIOR OF GOD Ezekiel 23:20-21There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses. So you longed for the lewdness of your youth, when in Egypt your bosom was caressed and your young breasts fondled.

    2. @Mike Williams I never said that I have it all figured out. But neither do half the people on here. Neither do you.

  2. _”Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.”_
    *- Charles Darwin*

    1. @Keith Adams I never liked Fuckchi. Never ever. I learned about herd immunity and instantly understood that was the lowest body count solution. I was likely among the first to publicly advocate for herd immunity. My limited understanding of economics after reading a few dozen books and countless hours or seminars told me that for every tick up unemployment the death count goes up. Forcing people to stay home and isolated would increased earth. The list goes on and on. I railed against the blunt instrument of lockdowns and making outdoor areas off limits. I said shelter the vulnerable and let the virus die out on its own. That was a soon as we understand the deaths were mainly from the elderly and otherwise compromised. But no, had to be stupid completely blunt shotgun approach like stupid government workers do when they run things. Lame.

    2. @Piktor Music I’m a believer in God almighty but I don’t blindly go by what the popular theory is. I know a little about science and worked my entire life using it’s principles, therefore I respect it. No one is 100.% right all the time, including theologians and the “prayer warriors”. There can be a cohesive belief in science and God as far as I’m concerned. Maybe I’m the odd man out but I’ve always been that anyway.

    3. @Mike Williams Those geez, Als, and Buds are God’s children as well. How dare you? I’ve known jeez and Als and Buds who worshipped God better than any Christian I know. You are not superior to anyone else.

    4. @Marty Baldwin hey Marty. Maybe in my haste I didn’t make it clear. I very much respect anyone who worships, period. The people who call religious people morons are my consternation. In fact I believe it takes more intelligence to weigh the possibility of intelligent design vs “science” these days. I’m trying to say give it a chance. Not proselytizing any one faith or another. It’s been a busy day on the YT chat room. Have you seen that piece on Hoover institute? Really just fantastic.

  3. Those young Men, who had been violated, could’ve used this same energy when “Ole jim” worked @ that university

    1. A simple question Jim Jordan could have ask Dr. Fauci is how much your life has change since the pandemic.

    2. Jane Wilson
      The first question should be asked of people like Jordan is whether he got his vaccine or not.

    3. @franklin pickle You are truly delusional AF! You have no real concept of government. You have no idea what the American government is all about. You live in a delusional world of pointing fingers and not getting anything done. Name 1 Republican state with a balance budget? But here you are pointing fingers. As I read your comments. It is beautiful how the white population have fallen so low. Basic understanding of anything. Is beyond your capabilities today.

  4. WE the people need to take note when these congress and senators speak and do what they want. because now then ever we see what they are doing start voting no these slugs are in office to long and do not help us

    1. The louder they yell and the more obnoxious their antics the more media coverage they get. Politicians like Jordon don’t have anything positive to bring to the table, so, to keep their voters happy with them, they scream, holler and insult. Then they go on social media and ask their followers to donate to their cause so they can do it all again. For some stupid reason the Republican voters like ignorance better than policies that help them live better lives. The heck with lower insurance rates or higher paying jobs. Just call other politicians bad names and insult their heritage, that’s what excites the Republican voters.

    2. @Anita Bruton The defining characteristic of Republicans as a whole is wanting to be left alone. Does this really make them the enemy? Trusting the government with only what is absolutely necessary because congress people are probably not better at running our lives.

      Which means there will always be an irony with Republicans in government. Like Jim. His primary purpose in being there is to pull back on the reins and say “Whoa, not so fast government”. He SHOULD be getting in the way. That is why half of America wants him in that chair. It is a form of checks and balances.

    3. @Jordan Wirth If some people are so bad at risk assessment, that they refuse vaccination and run around without a mask, they need a nanny state, to force them to do the right thing. Why should the whole population suffer, because there are idiots among us? The sooner we vaccinate our way into herd immunity, the sooner we can go back to normal life. Human turds, like Jordan, are impediments to the task at hand.

    4. @Deborah Freedman Almost everyone i know who does not wear a mask is doing so BECAUSE it is mandated. As a protest against the government’s heavy handed shutting down of businesses and power grab. If the government respectfully requested/recommended masks, it would be a non issue; many more people would wear them.

      I believe masks are somewhat effective, so i wear one. But i also recognize the alarmingly unchecked governor mandates. It is shockingly authoritarian. So i respect people who outright refuse saying “Nope. Not in America.”

      Remember, the people who refuse are generally living in small towns, being required to follow orders designed for Seattle, etc.

    1. @Carla Robbins the poor individual is confused as it is. I didn’t want to make their predicament worse by having the attempt an understanding of poetry.

  5. Asking the question that has already been answered. Just plain doesn’t except it. Just needs to admit it.

  6. Jim Jordan has not sponsored a single bill his entire time in Congress. He just wants to be on tv and be Insta famous.

    1. Honestly, I don’t think he has the brainpower to sponsor a bill. The guy’s just a moron who somehow managed to stumble into congress. That he even fails to follow the dress code is proof that he doesn’t belong—and knows it!

    1. Yes, I believe Jesus said, ‘heaven is all around you yet you do not see it’ or something to rhat effect.

    1. Exactly which video did you watch? Did you know, the states with the tightest covid restrictions are the same states with the highest infection rates? On the flip side, states like Florida are open. Wide open. No one is being forced to stay home. No business owners are being fined and threatened for simply trying to save the business and feed their families. Do you consider the ability to gather with friends/family a civil liberty? Here are a few Fauci quotes for you: “Whenever you have the threat of a transmissible infection, there are varying degrees from understandable to outlandish extrapolations of fear. Right now, in the United States, people should not be walking around with masks.” He also said “”Top disease official: Risk of coronavirus in USA is ‘minuscule’; skip mask and wash hands”, and “no evidence that masks outside the setting of the hospital worked.”

      Jordan asked Fauci a simple question- at what point can we open the country and let kids in schools and people go back to work. That’s it. If you were a business owner struggling to stay afloat, or a worker who is forced to stay home and is close to losing their home and can’t feed their kids, I’m pretty sure you’d wonder the same. There is zero evidence lockdowns are working. Even the nations of Europe have found this out. Italy, which was totally shut down, had an INCREASE in cases, their economy was hurting, and the people were going mad. They did a 180 and opened up. No sudden explosion of cases. Florida proves it. CA and NY have higher infection rates. So please, do your own research. Form your own opinions based on facts. Don’t let the media spoon feed you.

    1. Your states and your counties and your cities let people die, that’s why you should probably run for office, because a shill in a YouTube comment section like you would have been more adept at handling the virus than your election officials. They wanted weeks or months to declare states of emergency, racking up the death toll, and I would not have relied on the Federal Government to lockdown the entire country mid-February. Markets NOSE DIVED, had Trump freaked out, markets would have been WORSE and much worse than they are now. You know what. Screw Biden, screw trump, and screw you

    2. @Melvin Hardy He is responsible for most of the deaths a scientific research has founded. Trump downplayed as he said so as not to cause panic. True leaders the world over were honest with their citizens – no panuc ensued. So stop with your Trumpist bs it has no foundation .

    3. @Thomas Garvan no foundation, you’re calling me a liar and it’s about time you be held to account for assaulting peoples character and integrity. My city waited an entire month before they said anything during the biological attack, so there is your “foundation,” btw there is no “foundation argument” just a “sound” and/or a “valid” argument which I displayed to you, but you don’t care. IM the liar. MAYBE YOURE the liar, maybe you’re arguments have no merit or no foundation. Please do not reply

    4. @Thomas Garvan China and the WHO are responsible for the deaths my god, you think Trump or the president himself is god and can prevent plandemics and that is absolutely insane, if BIDEN was in office at the time, or HILLARY they would have probably freaking died. They were ill their entire campaigns. I’m not arguing, no one wants to argue with you, we’re seriously sick of wasting our breath because you people never listen

    5. Trump is the reason people died okay. So what is Biden going to do then? Oh right, exactly the same things Trump intended to do. I see right through your nonsense, stop defiling yourself it offends me and sets our country back to the stone ages

  7. Dr. Fauci totally kept his cool, Jim Jordan is the hothead. Thank you Dr. Fauci for trying to keep me from dying. If I’m dead my freedom of speech is meaningless. Hooray for Maxine Waters!! You go!

  8. “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Life is listed first for a reason. Don’t get much liberty when you’re dead.

    1. @Rino Ponce yeah we know that. It’s been 1 year of hearing that and we prefer remaining brainwashed. Happy? Now stop making that non-sequitur again

    2. @Rino Ponce yes. Go to a propaganda website run by a person who admitted to lying and paid a huge fine as damages.

  9. “Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King

    1. That’s true. Please explain why the states with the tightest restrictions also have the highest infection rates? Florida on the other hand has no lockdowns, all businesses are open, family and friends can gather without fear of being arrested, etc. Here are a few Fauci quotes for you to consider: “Whenever you have the threat of a transmissible infection, there are varying degrees of response, from understandable to outlandish extrapolations of fear. Right now, in the United States, people should not be walking around with masks.” He also said “”Top disease official: Risk of coronavirus in USA is ‘minuscule’; skip mask and wash hands”, and “no evidence that masks outside the setting of the hospital worked.”

      So why are the Dems insisting on keeping the economy shut down when there is clear proof that even with the tightest restrictions, the rate of infection is no better and in some areas even worse than staying completely open? Do you think gathering with family on holidays should be punishable by prison? That’s not liberty. That’s the opposite. Especially when we have proof the draconian lockdowns didn’t do a thing to lower death rates or infection rates. Do your own research. Don’t let the media spoon feed you.

    2. @PA Mike California, Texas, Florida and New York have had the highest COVID numbers. When the numbers are in free fall is when states generally begin to enforce more measures in order to help stem the flow of infection. And tighter restrictions do help, but are often lifted again too soon in concern for business and commerce dropping. The answers in preventing infection is in masks, social distancing and where possible avoiding all but essential trips away from home. But there is the problem in people who must work or live in conditions that make keeping a distance between themselves and others greatly difficult if not impossible.

  11. If they hadn’t been yelling “BUT MUH FREEDOMZ” for all of 2020, we would be back to normal already. Australia did the hard work when it mattered and now every business is open and nobody wears masks anymore because they have like 10 cases a day.
