  1. If the Dems can't use the discredited "The Russians are Coming!!" argument, they'll simply use the Ukrainians. Neither will work. On Trump's impeachment hearings, all I can add is this. You'd better successfully remove him, for if you fail again, you will have TWO failed attempts to explain to the American taxpayer. Trump will easily defeat any Democratic candidate you send against him. You stand no chance whatsoever. Send Joe Biden against him, send Elizabeth Warren, send Bernie Sanders, send anyone you wish. You can even dig up Hillary Clinton's corpse from the dregs of your dead candidates barrel, you will still lose. I do not like Trump, nor did I vote for him. But someone had to stop the Clinton Crime Cartel, and he won easily with the support of the American public. If you wish to remove my post, like the mass media usually does, no problem. My statement will have already been published, and I stand by it 100%. Have a nice day.

  2. PRESIDENTE DIMBULB has no concept of secrecy. He takes calls from Sondland on an unsecure cellphone…his whole Administration must be a scary breach of national security…Sondland's call gets patched from one office to another and finally to Dimbulb…snitch David Holmes eavesdrops the private businessman Sondland's phone call…bought his Ambassadorship for one million dollars…sondland.."that is a lot of money"…talk about "squid for crows"…patriotic Americans…what does a craven traitor look like???

  3. A Dilettante Presumptuous Theorem:

    Wake up America. If an investigation into Joe Biden and his son would help Trump in the 2020 election that means Joe and his son are guilty because that’s the only way Trump would win the next election. It’s all propaganda anyway.

  4. This is a breakdown of Steve Hilton’s “The Next Revolution” monologue on how Trump will be remembered in history. Obama’s view of his presidency was as follows “At the end of the day, we’re part of a long-running story. We just try to get our paragraph right.” Maureen Dowd of the NYTimes said at the time, “Mr. President, I am just trying to get my paragraph right. You need to think bigger.” Trump does think bigger. He didn’t come into office wanting to write a "paragraph" in the history book. He wanted to write the new chapter, even a new book, not just a few tweaks here and there like Obama or like most presidents, in fact. Trump wanted to actually change the direction of the country.

    Not with the economy, vital though that is, where, as promised, the Trump pro-enterprise agenda of deregulation and tax cuts has delivered historically low unemployment. Not with immigration, vital though that is, where, as promised, the border wall is going up and the numbers of illegal crossings are coming down. But the big one, is the truly historic shift on China and the associated issues of trade and manufacturing. For 50 years, China was barreling towards its stated goal of toppling America as the world’s economic and military superpower by 2049, not least by cheating on trade rules and stealing technology. President Trump, almost literally single-handed, challenged the conventional wisdom that China’s rise was inevitable.

    As a direct result of the Trump tariffs, manufacturers are moving out of China, and many more have signaled they’ll be looking to do the same soon. And the foundation of China’s power is crumbling before our eyes. They’re desperate for a trade deal. And they’re even saying they’ll finally act on intellectual property theft. For 50 years, we lived under an elitist ideology that was pro-China and pro-globalism, regardless of the impact on manufacturing, on agriculture, on rural areas.people who care about substance, about results — about the real world — should support him. His enemies — insufferable, pompous, sanctimonious, superficial — couldn’t care less about substance. It’s all just infantile insults.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., 2020 presidential candidate: Racist and xenophobic. Brian Stelter, CNN host:White nationalist. Sanders: He is a liar and a racist and a sexist. Ana Navarro, CNN analyst: Donald Trump is a misogynist racist, okay? Joe Walsh, 2020 presidential candidate: Not only is Trump a child, and not only is he a coward, and not only is he a traitor, Brooke. Here’s the thing — he’s a monster. "He’s a child, and he’s a traitor, and he’s a monster." Who’s the child now? Trump’s critics are completely oblivious, not just to Trump’s substantive record, but to the damage they themselves did to this country with their elitist policy agenda. They crashed the economy and crushed the working class. They enriched the coasts and impoverished the heartland — and not a word of apology for any of it.

    Trump supporters are not going to sit there meekly as the ruling class tries to cut short his term with this partisan farce of an impeachment which, let me remind you, has been in the works since practically the day he was inaugurated. Here are some examples: Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.: Impeach 45! Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.: … Because we’re going to go in there and we’re going to impeach the [expletive]. the election next year is an opportunity for the populist revolution to be reaffirmed. And my God, it needs to be after what we’re seeing with this impeachment. The ruling class never stops going on about democracy and the rule of law and the Constitution, and how Trump is undermining it.

    Michael Starr Hopkins, Democratic strategist: Donald Trump is such an existential threat to our democracy. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y.: No one is above the law, not even the president of the United States of America. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif.: This president is a threat to the democracy. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: The president must be held accountable. No one is above the law. Rep.Jim McGovern, D-Mass.: President Trump may have violated the Constitution. This is about protecting our national security and safeguarding our elections. Hey, how about safeguarding our elections by, you know, actually accepting their results and allowing the person who won to govern? A book by a radical left former mayor of London describes perfectly what’s going on here in America now: "If voting changed anything, they’d abolish it."It’s precisely because President Trump is delivering historic change that the ruling class is so violently, dementedly, against him. The Democrats, and the civil service, and MSNBC, and CNN have become an anti-Trump cult.

    Here’s what they’re saying to you, the American people: You can vote for a different China policy to the one the establishment wants, but you can’t get it. You can vote for a different trade policy to the one that Wall Street wants, but you can’t get it. You can vote for a different immigration policy to the one that global corporations want, but you can’t get that. You can vote for a different role for America in the world than the one the military-industrial complex wants but you can’t get that, either. You get what we tell you. We, the ruling class, are in charge, and no election is going to change that. That’s what this impeachment is about. That’s what that stupid "anonymous" book is about. And that’s what 2020 will be about. It will actually be about democracy.

  5. Everyone that just voted yes on the judicial commettee hearing on the impeachment hoax IS A TRAITOR TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! Hangings for these traitors are in order! The American people will remember the traitors!

  6. Whenever after watching a video I decided that I have to pass comments I found a line ' the comments are disabled or turned off.' This is unfair & against the policy of 'freedom of expression.' Someone from the west particularly America (the so-called champion of democracy & human rights) must try to address my grievance.
    Tell me WHY comments are disabled or turned off.
