  1. Hey, Russians are free to do what they want for our elections, why not the Chinese too???

  2. Financial reform in politics/media, it’s got to happen, and happen NOW!!!

  3. Citizens United…Good job “Supreme?” Court. I feel much better knowing that they have the foresight and vision to protect our Democracy by selling out all of our institutions, including the one they preside over.

  4. Moscow Mitch don’t want to protect the 2020 presidential election.
    In 2016 it was the Russia who they said rigged the election,
    2020 the Chinese are in to rigged the election, I don’t know what to believe

    • America is for sale.
      Stop letting Putin and any anti-Democracy and anti-American agencies divide and conquer your Nation.

    • Oba***man We are threatened by both Russia and China. Although Trump and Moscow Mitch will only point to China(for obvious reasons)

    • Believe iT, these two countries(Russia n China) have alot invested the downfall of our country. China now has a leader voted in for Life. Putin with Russia would love nothing better to see the collapse of our society. He’s hellbent on doing So.

      Oh no the Russians! Oh no the Chinese. Oh no the Israelis. Oh no the Saudis. Who;s next the Fijians?

    Epoch Times are all over You Tube. I don’t do Facebook so I can’t speak to that. It is very evident, however, that they do have an agenda.

  7. Illegal campaign contributions by other means.

    Falun Gong? I thought they were just a Buddhist meditation group. Maybe they really are “an evil cult!”

    • Would not shock me if this was funded by the Russians. Because Trump has no inkling of backing the Chinese protesters. That would be the right thing to do.

  9. America is for sale, folks!
    Buy your slice now before it’s gone!

    I’ve Seen Those ads on YouTube as well and you could tell how they cherry-picked the information to fit their narrative.

  11. All the money in advertising in the World couldn’t change my mind about Trump.

  12. Another cult supporting Trump, no surprise there!

    • Grim Reefer I bet you can’t disprove one thing reported by Epoch Times whereas Fake News MSNBC told it’s gullible audience for 3 years that the POTUS was the world’s smartest top secret double agent Russian spy…and you believed their Fake News propaganda! You’re a low IQ brainwashed sheep. Get help!

    If Falun Gong believes Trump will somehow help them against Xi they are sadly mistaken. They are despised by the Chinese government and Trump loves the very people that they hate…

    Facebook has no respect for its users. Bring it to an end, one account at a time. Start by deactivating your account. Write a message, telling your friends why you’re freezing it and setting a date to delete it. Also wite to FB, making it clear you will delete your account due to their lack of ethics, how they use and sell your information and have been used by governments such as the Russian on the 2016 elections and many others worldwide. There are many other — and much better, less intrusive and more ethical — social media tools available.

    By deleting your Facebook account, you take control as it loses its grip on you.

    _Vote ALL republicans out of ALL political offices mercilessly and without remorse._ *THEN UPDATE THE LAWS.*

  16. O M G !!!
    GOD KEEP US SAFE FROM tRump and the Republicans.

  17. Falung Gong members are persecuted in China by the government. This is a strange story.

  18. Use a browser with an ad block instead of the apps. More work but less intrusive b.s. marketing gimmicks.

  19. so bottom line is it’s a chinese effort to sway an american election … all our enemies love Trump … get it

  20. The party of family values, ethics and morals will not shut them down because it benefits their true agendas. Patriots? I think not.
