  1. Have you noticed that it was all White people there on Jan. 6th? All except the leader of the proud boys. People of color with weapons is a no-no. We would all been shot dead.

  2. 88 million on the bs Russian collusion hearings, however many millions have been wasted on this and the socialist party still doesn't get it. Nor does the propaganda ministry of ABC, CBS, NBC and of course the joke of a network CNN. The American people don't give a damn about your bs witch hunt to try and destroy President Trump. The people want affordable fuel, stop the runaway inflation, we want you to secure our borders and stop letting millions of your future voters come in illegally and JOBS.

  3. Many of us have known since day 1 of his presidency, Trump has been a pathological lier. So much has been revealed about the hundreds of lies and half truths, that were false and soley for the benifit of Trump. I watched, read and listened to just about everything since day 1. I predicted he'd be Impeached by his 1st year in. I don't understand, though there's a deeper understanding from all the witnesses for the January 6th hearings.
    I feel, that if the Hearings purpose is to prosecute Trump then the time and energy is worth it. But in light of every single unmoral, indecent thing he has done and said, why are there those who still believe him? I wonder where certain people don't go with their gut, there instincts, their common sense. That they are unable to see the truth through his lies.
    If this hearing doesn't move forward to prosecuting Trump, then it's been a waste of time and energy. He is dangerous and needs to be stopped and held accountable for every single one of his actions. He started the insurection on January 6th. Just listen to his speech and his actions prior and after. He simply took no action. Pence did. I'm hoping for the best outcome. Accountability and nothing else.

  4. So they are saying that Trump is guilty of trying to take what they had rightfully stolen?

  5. Trump is undermining our democracy! Then you have all those bootlickers politicians that go along with it, grifting traitors.

  6. Never trust the media ever lol

  7. LOL a designed kangaroo court committee to convince the non thinkers. Democrats are deeply afraid of Trump 2024

  8. Straight out of the communist manifesto blame the other party for what you are up to, to keep the masters confused.
    The COUP has happened,the democrats have successfully seized power by using MSM, rigged electoral machines and corrupt alphabet soup government organizations. They maintain the illusion with disinformation designed to foolishly indoctrinate a kind and gullible society. Our kindness has been mistook for weakness or has it? This hearing is another ill attempt at keeping you in what they consider your place.

    🙏🏽God forbid it, we have lost the desire or will to lay down our lives for the liberties of our loved ones here and abroad.
    Dear Lord give us the power to enlighten the world of the liberties bestowed upon us all at birth. May you bless them with the strength and ability to keep any evil from infringing upon those liberties.

  9. I hope there is a purpose to all of these hearings. I don't know who they are trying to convince. The people who saw it with their own eyes and aren't brainwashed already know Trump is a criminal, the people who are brainwashed OAN and Fox consumers will never believe their dear leader committed a crime, and all the people in the middle probably don't care. If he isn't tried in a court and convicted it will just give him a bunch of nonsense to blab about on his numerous narcissistic "insecurity" tours throughout the nation where he needs to feel like people think he is the greatest person to ever exist. The worst part is Joe Biden didn't crash the economy or cause inflation, and he has little to do with rising oil prices throughout the world. People are too stupid to realize that there are economic consequences to the entire planet shutting down for over a year. That is why we have inflation. It is supply and demand combined with printing enormous sums of US dollars. You would have to have an IQ below 80 to think these elements haven't played a huge role in what is transpiring today.

  10. YEAH TRUMP IS A DANGER TO AMERICA AND IT'S PEOPLE AND IT'S LAWS….

    HE STOPPED NORTH KOREA FROM FIRING MISSILES OVER JAPAN TRYING TO REACH AMERICA = WHAT AN IDIOT.

    HE STOPPED HILLARY C. FROM STARTING A WAR WITH IRAN = WHAT A LOUSEY LEADER

    HE STOPPED THE WAR IN AFGHANISTAN = DUMB ARSE PRESIDENT.

    HE GAVE MONEY TO BLACK COLLEGES = RACIST

    HE LOWERED OUR TAXES = STUPID PRESIDENT

    HE STOPPED IDIOTS FROM DESTROYING OUR STATUES & MONUMENTS OF AMERICA'S HISTORY AND WHAT SHE HAS BEEN THROUGH

    = WHAT A COMPLETE MORON

    HE SECURED AMERICA BORDERS, BUILT A WALL TO PROTECT IT'S PEOPLE & COUNTRY = HOW LITERALLY STUPID OF HIM

    HE WAS TRYING TO SAVE AMERICA'S PEOPLE = TRAITOR

    HE BROUGHT BACK STEEL COMPANIES = TOTAL DUMB ARSE

    HE GAVE AMERICA STIM MONEY = WHAT A MORON (It actually bought me a wrecker and helped my company)

    HE WARNED US OF OUR CROOKED DEMOCRATIC PARTY = HE MUST BE ON DRUGS LOOKA T THEM TODAY CRASHING AMERICA.. HE IS DUMB.

    Obviously, the goal is to tear America down and destroy it's History Respect and friendships in the world and divide it's own people. And it seems to be working great.

    When the war starts. Don't ask why.

    Ask why not.

  11. The coup happened on November 3rd 2020 when the duly elected President and Government was overthrown by a rigged and fraudulent Election, and it is only a matter of time before the people get to see the Facts and the Truth.
    They will never get away with it, doesn't matter how long it takes, the American patriots will NEVER give up until the guilty are brought to justice.

  12. BARR IS A TRAITOR TO AMERICA!

  13. Oh please. What a spoof. Show the MOSTLY PEACEFUL PROTEST that happened days and weeks and MONTHS BEFORE 45 had the election stolen!!

  14. Anyone who is commenting here must have the ability to want to find out the truth.

    At the same time if you are that smart you should stop lying to yourselves if you believe that was an insurrection.

    Anyone with any level of intelligence knows the truth, those who buy into the insurrection story just hated and hate Trump so bad that they either already threw our country under the bus by voting for this insane administration and willing to over their own and family's best interest let this nothing more than a bold attempt to strip us of more freedoms and eventually get the guns, so they think SUCCEED SO FAR..

    LOOK NO MORE PREACHING,, PAY ATTENTION , USE YOUR HEAD AND YOU KNOW THIS SIMPLE FACT TO BE TRUE BY NO OTHER EXPLANATION.

    IF YOU HATE TRUMP AND CONSERVATIVES AND THE CONSTITUTION BECAUSE THAT IDEOLOGY STOP YOU OR YOU FAVORITE ELECTED FROM RUNNING THINGS THE WAY THEY AND CONVINCED YOU WOULD LIKE,., THAT'S FINE AND THAT'S WHY WE VOTE.

    HOWEVER!

    IF JAN 6TH 2021 WAS A REAL INSURRECTION,

    FOR ONE! THEY, THE WHOLE CONGRESS AND EVERY CAPITAL POLICE OFFICER, LAW MAKER IN THAT BUILDING LIKED OR NOT, BAD OR GOOD, WOULD BE DEAD AND BURIED THIS VERY DAY AND NOT ONE OF THOSE WORMS HOLDING THIS SHAM EITHER WOULD EXISTS THIS .DAY… They would not have survived that day with almost 1 million Trump supporters in town just a mile down the road AND At least a few thousand right outside the capital ON THE STEPS that never entered WITH THE OTHERS

    And the couple hundred that did FORCIBLY enter AND EVEN ! led in by police AND ONLY AFTER THE AUTOMATIC BOLT LOCKING SYSTEM ON THE CAPITAL DOORS WERE RELEASED AND UNLOCKED MYSTERIOUSLY BY SOMEONE INSIDE MOMENTS BEFORE A SINGLE PERSON ENTERED.

    And you know in your heads even if you have half your brain tied behind your back this to be true and in any and all cases the people there would have been able just in numbers killed them all with their bare hands since the capital was also for unknown reasons so far understaffed with security that day, WHY? and by whose orders? Wasn't Trump, He approved 10,000 minimum Guard the day before or two just to play it safe,? There are emails time dated of those from him 2 to 3 days prior.no National guard in site when they had warnings days before against potential violence.

    WHY DO YOU THINK THIS COMMITTEE DOES NOT ALLOW ANY DEFENSE LAWYERS OR GOP THAT LEADERS FOR ANYONE THEY ARE ACCUSING. ?

    LOOK LONG STORY SHORT, NO ONE AND, I MEAN NO ONE WOULD HAVE ,COULD HAVE PREVENTED WHAT WOULD HAVE AMOUNTED TO A FULL BLOWN COUP AND MASSACRE EQUIVALENT TO THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES OF ALL MEMBERS OF CONGRESSES DEATH THAT DAY OR AT LEAST IMPRISONMENT OR HOSTAGES BEFORE HELP COULD ARRIVE..

    IN ADDITION WITH 1 MILLION POTENTIAL LOST THEIR MINDS PEOPLE RUNNING AROUND TOWN IF THEY WANTED BUT DID NOT, AND IT WAS AN INSURRECTION, THEIR CAPITAL POLICE STATION, ALL OF SECRET SERVICE AND THE FBI BUILDING AND ALL AUTHORITY IN TOWN WOULD HAVE BEEN ATTACKED.

    On Jan 6th those were overall peaceful protestors with some that destroyed some property. But not one of them were NOT armed with guns AND only stupid hats and signs that someone may have used to break a window OR A FEW .but they could have easily showed up armed and destroyed our entire government within hours before help could even arrive. LIKE I AM SAYING ! There was no insurrection OR all of congress and the usual suspects would be all dead in the capital that day.. AND EVERYONE IN GOVERNMENT AND EVEN MOST OF YOU KNOW THIS.

    ALSO HERE IS LITTLE TIB BIT OF FOOD FOR THOUGHT ? WHY AFTER ALL THIS TIME AND THE ILLEGAL DETAINMENT OF MANY PRISONERS THEY DEEN INSURRECTIONIST HAS NONE BEEN CHARGED WITH THE OFFICIAL CHARGE OF INSURRECTION AND ONLY DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY- TRESPASS ETC. ? TELL ME WHY AFTER A YEAR AND A HALF?.

    Personally I could at thiS POINT NOT give a fat rat's ass if Trump runs again , the way this is and was all handle has brought our country to its knees here and abroad tALL BECAUSE! A bunch of hate filled imbeciles that could not get it through their head that Presidents come and go and its a waiting your turn game in the end. BUT NOT ANYMORE, THOSE WHO ARE SUPPORTING ALL THINGS UNCONSTITUTIONAL MAY HAVE JUST ROBBED YOUR CHILDREN OF A FREE AMERICA OR JUST ASHES FROM A ONCE GREAT NATION.

    I have a clear conscious because I did not and am not letting people tell me what happened with the election- Jan 6th. that I seen, listened , research and experienced with my own eyes and ears. NOT TO MENTION WAS WATCHING 4 LIVE STREAMS THAT DAY AND BEFORE.

    AND FOOTAGE AND TESTIMONY NOT AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE ONLY THROUGH DEEP RESEARCH AND LOOKING FOR VULNERABLE JOURNALISM REPORTING AND INFORMATION DURING THE ELECTION AND UP UNTIL NOW.

    i SPENT years building weapons for our nation, and having a (TSSCI) SECURITY CLEARANCE made me privy to many out of the box possible solutions to what was and still an ongoing PSYOP " The meaning of PSYOPS is a military operations usually? aimed at influencing the enemy's state of mind through non combative means THROUGH MIND MANIPULATION DIS INFORMATION , FEAR TACTICS OH AND SO MUCH MORE.

    Most of my professional friends who are of the same background and military or law enforcement know everything leading up to the election , covid, Jan 6th to stop the 60 congress members from wanting to challenge with dueling electors that were the only victims stopped from doing their job that day according to law.

    STOP ENABLING THESE REAL INSURRECTIONIST AND TRAITORS FROM DESTROYING US ANY FURTHER.

  15. "If the victim has a chance to investigate and examine the
    and accusations, the whole artificial nightmare will fall away. For
    this reason, the jailers are careful not to dismiss all their converts
    at once. A few must stay behind as hostages to assure that those who are
    released will not expose the whole plot and thus endanger their friends
    in jail. Those who do tell the truth on their return home feel guilty
    because of what their revelations may expose the hostages to" —

  16. YOU CAN'T BELIEVE " ANYTHING " TRAITOR CHENNY SAYS…BEFORE,DURING,AND AFTER TRUMP TRIED TO SECURE INCLUDING THE MILITARY WHAT MORE HELP DO YOU NEED THAN THE MILITARY?? PELOSI IS THE REAL CRIMINAL HER ALONG WITH PERFECTLY PUCKED DEMOCRATS EXECUTED PAID RIOTERS, SET UP BAIL FOR THEM AFTER THE FACT, AND REUSED HELP, CAPITOL POLICE WERE TOLD TO STAND DOWN BY DC MAYOR YOU HAVE ZERO ON TRUMP BUT YOU HAVE MOUNTAINS OF EVIDENCE TO PROVE THE ABOVE. ALSO THAT WASN'T THE EVENTS THAT HAPPENED THE DEMS PAID A " PRODUCER AND FILM MAKER TO EDIT THAT FOR YOU TO BELIEVE IT WAS SOOOO HORIFFIC…ALL PAID FOR BY OYIR TAX DOLLARS BTW MEDIA PANICK SET IN TO BRAINWASH THE WEAKEST MINDS OUT THERE TO BELIEVE ONCE AGAIN TRUMPS FAULT, AND OF COURSE TIMING, RUSSIAN COULLSION WENT AWAY, ALL THE OTHER OBSTACLES WENT AWAY, THE NEW PROVEN ELECTION SCAM IS AT THE FORFRONT SO THEY HAVE TO COME UP WITH A NEW COUP! THE SENATE WAS ACTUALLY BLOWN UP YEARS AGO, AND THEY DID ZERO…SO GTFOH WITH THIS REPULSIVE B.S.

  17. A room full of democrat kangaroos doing what they do best…blame somebody else.

  18. Anyone with no value for life will go after outsiders or anyone who doesn't fit in with their agenda of total ENVY.

  19. Jan 6 bullshit! Show me any evidence at all where people declared that that they are taking over the government of the USA and Congress people were threatened or hurt! Total bullshit!

  20. Biden and Hillary and the rest are just upset because they know no one would have stormed the capitol for them.

  21. The democrats and their news lying people need to be hanging off interstate bridges with ropes. Probably going to be happening very soon. FJB to you scumbags.

  22. By the looks of everything that's going on maybe I should take my friends advice they all want me to run for the first American female president 2024 and it looks like It shall be done!!!

  23. So why has an armed military or our police arrested these politicians that have more than a year under their belt that are all doing this disruption chaos delusional stenosis of their propaganda an agenda that are hurting American citizens they Congress Senate our politicians are breaking laws that they have put in two bills humanitarian Aid is discrimination against her own people they're able to give 40 billion two other countries to help their Humanity reate however the people here in America are suffering dying starving neglected High inflation by these corporations that are fighting with the government on who's going to control the next production economics

  24. Just like title 42 nobody can cross the borders because of the Mandate however they can bring other foreigners over here non-citizens to put them in these states so they can vote for them to be re-elected that is how corrupt your election is

  25. If there was no Insurrection on January 6th where other politicians are involved and there is no impeachment everything is innocent then no one should be arrested for installation on January 6th it is the District of Columbia it is not even located in the United States therefore no crime has ever been committed they gave a slap on the hand these cops that were involved in the Insurrection but they're giving other people almost like sentences dinner is a very huge disruption in the global government system and we the people have tried to overturn our government and now we're called terrorist if we do so why would we sit around and let our government keep slaughtering us in many different forms

  26. Who is the leader in aristocracy?

    In practice, aristocracy often leads to hereditary government, after which the hereditary monarch appoints officers as they see fit. In modern times, aristocracy was usually seen as rule by a privileged group, the aristocratic class, and has since been contrasted with democracy.

  27. my friend from ohio went he told whole different story there was a group that didnt fit in with the rest of the crowd the police let in?

  28. There is no need for this. Just put novichok in Trumps underpants and get rid of the liar and traitor.

  29. There's no use in trying to point out any logic or reason or truth with the right, they lie and spin the narrative any way they can to benefit themselves. Luckily the truth is well documented and they won't get away with it this time.

  30. President Biden has a plan to tackle inflation – by lowering costs that families face and lowering the federal deficit by asking the large corporations and the wealthiest Americans to pay their fair share. Congressional Republicans, led by Senator Rick Scott, have called for a new minimum tax on the middle class – firefighters and teachers – that would mean an average of almost $1,500 less in families’ pockets each year.

  31. We have known this pretty much since it happened. The justice system moves so damn slow in this country
