  1. “Men who look upon themselves born to reign, and others to obey, soon grow insolent; selected from the rest of mankind their minds are early poisoned by importance; and the world they act in differs so materially from the world at large, that they have but little opportunity of knowing its true interests, and when they succeed to the government are frequently the most ignorant and unfit of any throughout the dominions.” — Thomas Paine

    • Fantastic quote from Common Sense author. TY! Please call Congress 202-224-3121 for these ARE the times …

      @R M sounds like you’re uneducated. Just saying!

    • R M :: I hope for everyone’s sake that one day, you and yours have a spiritual awakening… and realize that your blind-faith makes you gullible sheep… and Trump is a sociopathic sheep-herder who uses fear, fairytales, and Fox News to spoon-feed his self-serving sermon. Sleep well fellow American.

      Here’s another quote from the “Google machine;”

      Benjamin Franklin — “It is the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins.”

    • @tim taylor I’d be glad to put square pegs in square HOLES – not wholes. Exactly what I did. A rose by any other name is a rose.
      Informing someone they are a moron is not name-calling, it is educating that person that their ideas are wrong and dumb.

      Worrying about hurting other people’s feelings and not telling people when they are dumb, and letting those stupid people believe that their poor ideas are good is the very reason we have Donald Trump as President.

      You got to get tough on the class losers. They got poor grades in school, didn’t pay attention in Civics class and now they think they need to be telling the smart kids how to read the Constitution? It has to stop.

      Well put!

  2. Make careful note of the GOP faces…

    • It is 2019 you can find a credible news to source

    • You don’t need to remember their faces. You can Google this and get all of their names and what states they’re in… unless I misunderstood what you were getting at.

    • @WatchListenLearnDoTeach Regularly What laws did they break again? There is no law against congressmen entering a congressional hearing. You poor delusional bastards think you have a lot more power than reality dictates.

    • William Wolski – President Trump will have his deposition with the opportunity to clear his name like Bill Clinton did on Jan 17, 1998

    What a bunch of kids. They’re acting like clowns

    • @Mickey Rosa damn you stupid

    • @Ken Tinman I named several times where they’ve behaved that way. Wisconsin with the teachers’ unions, Texas with abortion, the Kavanaugh hearings, the sit-in in regards to gun control. I have also provided examples where they do not care about intelligence leaks. What you’ve done is turn my comment around to only mean the exact specific thing that happened here and exaggerating by calling it “espionage”. Which is disingenuous of you. I try to be fair, but I do expect the rules to apply to everyone.

  7. I hope every single one of them gets penalized.

  8. The Sgt at Arms needs to Arrest all of those Republicans who stormed that room. If any of us normal members of the public did that, we would have been arrested by now.

      @Ken Masters There’s no argument. These idiots crashed a party that they were not invited to. I don’t give a damn that they work there. This is a rule that the Republicans made as far as entering hearings. Now they want to act like the Democrats are the problem. I will not be soft on these M-f-ers. Some of this same crew has been showing their asses since 2010. F them.

    • shirley bethea | October 24, 2019 at 11:22 AM | Reply

      @Donald Rider Explain that to your illegitimate president.

    • @shirley bethea not speaking of substance that is irrelevance, i am speaking of the actual process of legal ramifications based on the republicans actions in this situation, and they do not involve arresting anybody, which is why no one was arrested. Just wanted to clear up your statement in regards to “The Sgt at Arms needs to Arrest all of those Republicans who stormed that room. If any of us normal members of the public did that, we would have been arrested by now” which is completely false, any of us would have been asked to leave and possibly trespassed

    • Dave Goodwin Did you not read her comment? Do I need to paste it for you sweetheart?

    • Mickey Rosa is every comment a trollbot that you disagree with? Just curious………

    Now I wonder how the GOP would react to Democrats storming any proceedings with their cell phones into a secured facility 🤔

  10. Vote those fools out, this was planned with Drumpf’s blessing

    When these people got elected no one told them that they will be above the law and their job was to legislate not to break the law. They should be arrested cause if anyone else tried this they will not see the sun for very long time.

  12. They still act like the rules don’t apply to them

      I know!!! WTF is wrong with those filthy liberal democrats!!

    • @Willliam Fish English is a second language for you right? I dont care about the “debate” your in but if your not from the USA why do you care so much?

    • @R M I am confused by your comment. The Democrats are following the rules. It was the republicans who brought illegal technology into the sciff (sp?)

    Why weren’t they arrested, charged with a fed
    Crime🤔 it could be argued they tried to intimidate a witness

    • Political accountable Theory | October 24, 2019 at 11:28 AM | Reply

      @Ken Masters Oh negative, it was a secured rm. their actions were to disrupt testimony

    • Political accountable Theory not how the law works, regardless. I’ve worked in law enforcement, 2 things. 1 nobody was arrested so there’s proof, 2 don’t believe me contact any LEO. Your opinion is far from the actual law, I just wanted to help clarify so you can look like you know what your talking about

  15. The fat lady is in the wings rehearsing.

    • Jake Moeller oh, she’s ready to take the stage.

    • @Henry Coats Only took her three years… she better hurry up before Orange Man gets re-elected. Maybe if you tempt her with some Krispy Kremes… fat ugly feminist land whales love Krispy Kreme… just sayin’

    • @Jack Mehoff Come on, y’all!! Who doesn’t love a Krispy Kreme!! Even li’l here.🍩🍩🍩

  16. Elect a gameshow host? Expect a gameshow.

  17. These Republicans should be fined and punished for their breach of security.

    • @Jack Mehoff campaign finance laws and obstructions… Read the report… As far as your GOP talking point that Dems didn’t do anything…. You should ask Mitch McConnell…. in order for the GOP to keep toting that the do-nothing Dems he is taking bills that have passed the house inexcess of 100 Bills like infrastructure healthcare gun control bills that affect our daily lives… he won’t even hold a vote on them… It’s the same thing he did for Obama…. It’s not about you or I it’s about power… I don’t know if you were serious or if you just like as you call it entertainment value… If you have Google I suggest you use it and do your own research… Stop doubling down on the dumbass in office… This isn’t about left to right… It really is about what’s best for the country… Who would that be right now I have no idea… I just know it’s not him. .. juvenile name-calling.. how many 70 year old men say they’re a stable genius have unmatched wisdom and “I’m like really smart”? Embarrassing on the world stage!

    The Capitol Police should have put these little runt crooks in cuffs.

    • And treated them like an African American at a traffic stop.

    • Sorry… the capitol police don’t work for the Democrats. Schiff is not following the house standards for impeachment and since all congressmen have full access to the Capitol building there isn’t anything Schitt and his co-conspirators can do about it.

    • Jack mehoff please educate us what is the standard for impeachment , there are no articles voted on yet to be sent to Senate, clearly they are still in the investigative stages . You as a defendant cant just walk in to an investigation room in a police station and intimidate the witness testifying against you , why are they allowed to do that . There are Republicans in those committees already , these other republicans need to go to their own damn committees and do their job

    • Painkiller Jones | October 24, 2019 at 10:43 AM | Reply

      For patriotism?

    • because they work in that building and they would have to been asked to leave first, then possibly trespassed at the most.

    This seems like the very definition of Obstruction of Justice.

  20. They can’t defend the President’s actions so they are attacking the process. It’s the only play they have.
