  • 13:37 "Two hours after Mr. Obama said that, president Trump tweeted from the white house we will win!" Trump was so delusional. Ha! 😅

  • This president is not a person Who I used to love anymore. His face exposes himself. It contains hate, hatred, anxiety. Like his wife, they have been trying to use their words to make President Trump look bad. No any noble person do that. Maybe they are afraid of being faint. Jesus did not choose educated disciples, He chose people who have sincere hearts. Educated people they are too arrogant, they rely on their knowledge and are not humble.

  • You will not bring the country back together by removing our freedoms with mask mandates and ridiculous rules and laws. I also believe with every broadcast you blame trump or his voters or supporters you are asking for more anger and rejection of your policies. It's not 35% trump either I voted for Biden and I know without a doubt it is more like 70% Trump 40% Biden I also know as much as Trump annoys me he more than likely did win this election. On the left, we do tend to think in ways the right does not. So I think we planned the win. I'm okay with that this is politics everyone is a piece of crap.. Next time Trump will know what he's up against and the impeachment won't work and next time we won't win we will get caught cheating. Or he will out cheat us. Its that simple deal with it

  • I DARE YOU TO READ, FACTCHECK AND RESPONS! And now the first caravan of ten of thousands of refugees are walking to the BIDEN promised land. And be asured there are many more comming. Who do you think is paying ( all the costs to become an US citizen) for all those people??? The many TRILLION DOLLARS climate deal is at hand that will costs every household at least ten thousands of dollars each year. The China trade deal will be undo so many jobs are moving, again, to China. Defunding police and military ( China has the largest navy and is still expanding its military and its influence). The peace deals with North Korea and the Middle East will be undone. Again a war is at hand. A new aplication-rule/law is going to be launched for police, military, FBI, CIA and other jobs that will make it impossible for NON LEFT thinkers and REPUBLICANS to get that job. The silencing ( Facebook-Twitter-Whatsapp-Google-ISpast) of NON LEFT thinking will be going on and MUCH HARDER. Yeah, indeed you should all be proud of YOUR new administration.

Also the Democratic Party are all narcissist so what that means is everything that they’re saying about Trump is actually what they’ve done or what they are doing

  • Doesn't it seems like democracy signalling future instability? I appreciate Obama indirectly accepted how Democracy plays it effectiveness in a dictatorship country but they came in power in the name of Democracy. Does Democracy has a definite future for the world? Why not we have to find some sort of balance system that functioning and peoples wills remain in any means.

But after 20 years no engineering school has built a physical or virtual model of the collapse. In 1940 it only took 4 months to model the Tacoma Narrows bridge to analyze the oscillations. So this truth decay has been at least 2 decades old. Scientists & engineers are stuck with The Twin Towers Affair.
