  1. The Reps want a party of one, it’s this simple.

    • Republicans are also quick to betray America and Americans for power and wealth. They are our most corrupt.

    • @William H Right, because we are all Americans and most could care less what your sexual preference is or who you care to love. Why are Right-Wingers so damn homophobic, yet get caught in same sex acts at 1.3 times the rate of people who identify as Democrat. Stop the self loathing and hating your fellow man because they chose to love someone you don’t approve of.

    • @Sammy Bolo Trump’s own investigation recently concluded there is no Deep state. This doesn’t stop Trump from convincing our least educated that it exists however.

      Yep, russian troll…

  2. Everything trump accuses others of I guarantee he is actually guilty of!

  3. And Barr needs to be charged with treason!

      @Chadillac Google it. He was Trump’s guest . Not an actual member. Try to catch up. When trump was a democrat he and the Clintons were best of pals, they attended his wedding , he donated 100 k to their foundation. He and bill were golf buddies…Both are lying draft dodging whoremongers.

      @Chadillac Nope, the clown in office rn should be indicted.

    • @Chadillac We know what happened. Russians attacked our elections. Rather than focusing on Russian propaganda talking points we should be working to secure our cyber infrastructure, and pounding Russia’s cyberwarfare capabilities into the dirt.

    • @J B who “pounded” your IQ?

  4. The biggest demographic in our country that’s holding us back is right wing, white evangelicals. They wanna bring America back to the 1950s and Jim-Crow.

      DRSmetal,
      If you really believe what you said about the evangelicals, then you might as well dump the car you have in your avatar.

    • @STOP ABORTING BABIES START ABORTING LIBERALS And you support that. Says alot about you. Pathetic

    • @STOP ABORTING BABIES START ABORTING LIBERALS FDR was a liberal. You say he ushered in the best time in American history. You may be right.

    • @STOP ABORTING BABIES START ABORTING LIBERALS For holding a dictator responsible for his crimes, which is their constitutional duty?

  5. It’s scary when Fareed says his optimism is getting weary 🤫

    • I agree.

    • He gets paid to say that by communist Dictators. If ya dont like a clean conservative moral America. Go create your own communist utopia somewhere else. Dont come to our country and push your filthy perverted hateful communist cultures on us. Conform. Or pack..

    • It’s Only Scary if you are a ANTI AMERICA Satanist Globalist DEMONCRAP Congressperson or Politician who Could get Caught in CRIMINAL ACTION AGAINST AMERICA!!! I Wonder why no one
      is Talking About the “DEMOCRAT 16 Year Plan to COMPLETELY DESTROY AMERICA”, Staring Fag Obama for 8 Years and Hillary Clinton for 8 Years??!!! GOOGLE IT FOR YOURSELF!!!

    • @liberals are angels U R A SERIOUSLY DELUSIONAL Deceived Gullible Stupid Ignorant Idiot Dumbed Down Mindless Paper Headed Numbskull DUMB – ocrap VOTER FOOL, LIBTARDS ARE SATANISTS!!!
      Just Like in 2016 When Hillary Clinton Said, “DEMOCRAT VOTERS ARE STUPID PEOPLE and Easily Manipulated into Believing Whatever They Are Told to Believe”!!! Sounds to me Like Hillary Clinton was
      Talking About you Satanist Libtard FOOLS!!!

    • It means America is winning, Faisal Amjad. As a hater of this Nation you SHOULD be scared. You’re not welcome here.

    The GOP is fading. They have only won the popular vote ONCE since 1988. LMAO

  7. And it’s all on you America. Your lack of protest has allowed this to happen. Internet comments are not a replacement for civic duty

    • @A. Murphy the content is obvious and so simple. only two points, first the american people will elect trump a president again in 2020 in a sweeping victory, trump in his turn will continue to totally destroy the evil liberalism in america and around the world. second: cnn fake news. as we are witnessing during the past couple years the only trolls are the liberal traitors who are colluding with russia to destroy america, starting with obama putin’s puppet and not ending with crooked hillary the russian criminal agent with the rest of her liberal buddies. here you go, that a hell much of content for you to cry on

  8. Comfy from middle to top.

    No ones doing anything.

    Billionaires require slave labor to exist.

    The age of information was threat.

    Welcome to the age of disinformation.

    • “No ones doing anything”. I agree with your break down, but it also clarifies the solution.
      DO SOMETHING

    • @FromTacoma
      Kay,
      what am i not doing,
      mister easily saying, its easy to say.

      The problem is real,
      your inference is deflection.

      I do what i can,
      If the subwealthy upper middle,(comfiest housecats in history)
      keep getting fear mongered into voting against taxes they can easily afford several times over ,
      by billionaires,
      what i can do wont matter much unfortunately

      Sold salesmen boomers have the voting numbers.
      Its like they had fewer kids so we were easier to rape.

      The pyramid is upside down,
      Marketing should be minimum wage,not engineering and labor(actual work).

    “Our radical Democrat opponents are driven by hatred prejudice and rage.” So funny how Trump projects.

    • @Chadillac

      Instead of saying “real media”: how about you cite a link?

    • @kimmer824

      The worst thing Trump and his supporters do is to refer to their political opposition as if they weren’t Americans.

      You asked for an example of corrupt behavior. That’s my answer. And you should note that it indicts you as well.

    • @Chadillac

      The NYTimes article… What do you think it says that vindicates Trump?

    • @The Great Owl whatever. Dem0nkkrats might be born here but they hate this country which is why they push globalism and the NWO which we all know is s@ntanism. Also, you all continually lie to cover for your corrupt party. And then you point the finger and constantly make false accusations and accuse us if exactly what you and your evil party are doing. But this will all come out soon with the IG report and hopefully the dem0nkkrat party will cease to exist.

    • @kimmer824 Not at all, you just come off as a stark raving lunatic.

      Also most of the foreigners I run across don’t come off as deranged assholes, so I simply have, I dunno, normal conversations with them?

    Honey, our Democracy is not in Jeopardy….it is already dead. We now live under an Autocracy. The rich own our Government therefore dictating policy; the rest of us are left to fight each other for scraps.

    • @STOP ABORTING BABIES START ABORTING LIBERALS There is something wrong in a liberals brain. You can change it, even with common sense…They’re not dealing in reality.

      It was John Adams who said: “Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide”.

    • @STOP ABORTING BABIES START ABORTING LIBERALS quit smoking crack
      We need more immigrants

      @Joe Romo Says who? Half the country voted for the guy saying we want less immigrants and to build a wall to keep them out

  11. We are screwed

  12. “I don’t stand by anything.” -Trump
    One statement that so aptly describes his entire presidency.

    • @Eric Larsen Fox is NOT a news outlet. They are listed as entertainment. And they only speak OPINIONS. Hell their lead “mouths” aren’t even educated to the level of genuine news outlets. Hannity/Carlson/Beck… all college dropouts.

    • Also “the buck stops with everyone.”

      And just recently he was asked who is accountable for Kashoggis murder and he said the whole world. The man is a complete joke.

    • @olobar5 China does not respect Trump, but they love what he is doing in weakening America. The economy has nothing to do with Trump, except he has harmed it with his incompetence.

      @John Goldsworthy Trump is leaving and You’re getting a new custom shop Stratocaster (with a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates humbucker at the bridge) and a vintage 1956 Les Paul gold top. You’re also getting a brand new Martin D45 and a Taylor PS14CE with a sinker redwood top. Just because you asked so politely, you’re also getting a new Fender twin reverb deluxe amp. I guess you picked the right day to post a comment on YouTube!🎸🎸🎸

      @Randall P. McMurphy You must be Santa because that’s exactly what I wanted. Add a Telecaster and I’ll believe I’ve died and gone to heaven.

    • God you are ugly

  14. Remember to donate to Amy McGrath’s campaign and DITCH MITCH 2020!!!

    • @jerry slater

      Threatening to murder a political enemy is not being a patriot. Those that would circumvent democracy in favor of expediency are enemies of democracy.

    • @jerry slater

      I know it’s frustrating. But there are no shortcuts. This is the open marketplace of ideas. Forcing your opinion doesn’t accomplish anything that lasts. That’s why what is right will eventually always win out. Because it’s right. It’s factually right. Be patient.

    • The Great Owl personally, I do not think corporations should be able to contribute, and I’m fully aware Mitch gets out of state money. He shouldn’t be. These so called representatives would never jeopardize the flow of money they have coming in by legislating it away. In an ideal world the states would fix these problems for them, but the money is so overwhelming that none of these people are actually willing to do anything about it.

    • @tstandri

      We are agreed then. The money is itself the issue. And Mitch is addicted to it.

      To get rid of Mitch will take a lot of money and a principled grassroots candidate. I genuinely believe that electing Amy McGrath to replace McConnell would be a huge blow to the corporate oligarchy that current campaign finance rules allow.

      I would insist that a part of that fix be the cordoning off of localities for political funding. But that is not where we are today. There’s not enough money in Kentucky to compete with the corps and special interests that are backing Mitch McConnell.

      Democracy needs our help.

      So: seriously – consider donating to Amy McGrath’s campaign. She’s a good and honest American that wants to serve her country. And just by giving her the chance we weaken the established oligarchy.

    The silence of the judiciary, particularly the SCOTUS is another disturbing sign.

    • @vertabrate1 How are you going to stack the court?
      It’s already 5-4 and when RBG kicks the bucket Trump will appoint another conservative making it 6-3.

    • Radwulf Eboraci | December 1, 2019 at 10:01 PM | Reply

      @Richie Tattersall Not talking about individual cases. The Constitution calls for 3 co-equal branches – legislative, judicial, presidential. When people erroneously deny Congressional authority. When they claim Presidential omnipotence. Scotus should speak. Justice Roberts HAS in the past https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/25/politics/trump-roberts-supreme-court-taxes/index.html

      @Richie Tattersall If the Republicans have a majority and threaten to LEGALLY deport ALL DACA “kids” and start rounding up all illegals for deportation by the TENS OF MILLIONS, yea I think these traitors will play ball. I know in this 2019 Clown World, the thought of actually enforcing our own laws like a sane country is a ridiculous concept, but believe it or not, we used to do it and could start again. Japan, China, South Korea etc are all doing pretty well without mass third world migration. These people do not need to be here and should not.

      @Raren77 If you even read my other post, I have been tested and mine is 130.4, much higher than average and probably higher than the combined score of your entire extended family. You want open borders + Socialism. You’re a literal sub-human animal of sub-human intellect. Your feigned attempt at condescension is completely unwarranted. You look like Richard Simmons trying to call someone a “homo”, rofl.

    Google “Articles of Confederation” it wouldn’t be the first time an attempt at a new type of Government was tried and thrown out, it would be the 2nd.

      Richie, it has been said that a constitution should be on a pedestal and hard to touch. Otherwise, it may as well be written in pencil.

    • Richie Tattersall | December 1, 2019 at 8:45 PM | Reply

      @David Skeffington The United States Constitution, Article V is Amendments. 2/3rds of the House of Representatives + 2/3 of the Senate, OR 2/3rds of the State can propose an Amendment, EITHER way, at LEAST 3/4ths of the States have to ratify it before it can be amended.

    Sir, you are an immigrant I am proud to have as a fellow citizen.

  18. “75% of Americans can’t name the 3 branches of government”.
    No healthy democracy can survive such wilfull ignorance.

    • @Antenna Wilde – then your democracy is doomed.
      Good luck in 2020.

    • America isn’t a democracy. Even this crazy eyed freak admitted that fact in the beginning of this video.

    • @Chris Johnson – err OK. I guess you should stop having elections then. A waste of time? I just feel sad watching your country now. I spent most of the 1980s living there.
      Always plenty of corruption but this hate and despondency is newish.
      Good luck in 2020.

    • @Michael Heins we don’t care how you feel and the time is coming when we won’t care how the left feels. They are a threat to the Republic and will be treated as such.

  19. No it’s not, just politicians who disagree with each other
