1. This is illegal. 2. If all votes, it won't change a damn thing. 3. This is serious if all Americans don't vote from this day forward.

The least the Republicans can do, after all the harm they and Trump have caused, is to convict Trump. Also, it seems the evidence is pointing to the fact(?) that a few Republican Congresspeople and/or Senators assisted the riots so they themselves are guilty of these crimes.

At what point are his actions considered treason. He's actively compromising our countries security on multiple fronts. At what point do we see the child breaking the toy he cannot have?

I hate to be a downer but, is America planning to do something before or after the koolaide. if there is one thing I'm sure of, Trumps humility will not risk prison. Stop focusing on analysis, stop him for crying out loud. He is exactly the person who will cause as much damage and loss of life on his way out. he can still control things now but he knows soon he will have no control. This is Jim Jones, Hitler on his last day, Puputan or Heavens Gate. If there is a chance, and there is, stop him before he tries to make a huge section in a history book. At this point he shouldn't be trusted with anyone's life.

It took four years of all out war in the forties to lose 405000 in battle. With trump running the Covid war we will have exceeded that death toll in just 11 months by nearly as many deaths as eleven years of the Vietnam War took.

What is it with this show that's constantly being published in mono sound? If you're not recording in stereo at least duplicate the left sound into the right channel.

in wisconsin, and especially in kenosha, 3rd degree sexual assault can be and is charged when a 17 year old boy has consenual sex with his 16 year old girlfriend. it can literally be charged for peeing on someone's shoe. so unfortunately, the "very serious felony" of sexual assault has been so watered down as to often not be very serious, or even very sexual in nature. so jumping to the conclusion that blake is some sort of sexual predator is, at least, premature. the fact that the warrants on this young man have been dropped is a clear indication that the charges were likely unsubstantiated garbage in the first place. i know the corrupt kenosha criminal justice system from the inside. some good journalist should investigate what percentage of young black men in kenosha have been arrested. because doing so is almost literally sport for kenosha police. investigate their 'gang unit' if you really want some sordid news.
