Reading these comments during the 4th day of America’s 2020 election, on the day we broke the world record for most confirmed cases of coronavirus (previously held by India which is over 4x our population) in a single day (100k).... It’s amazing to scroll down and see nothing but a nation unified by a common tragedy. We are so divided on every issue now, big and small, we argue “alternative facts”, and “fake news”. We are going through a pandemic, Trump himself contracted it; just an hour ago news broke of Trump's chief of staff testing positive. Yet we continue to argue over whether masks are necessary! We were hiding in our houses 6 months ago buying toilet paper and disinfectant wipes on eBay for inflated prices. Now we’re back to “normal”, not bc of a vaccine or ramp down in cases, bc we got cabin fever and relief money wasn’t close to paying the rent. So we put our mask on when we leave for work and don’t hug, it’s just something we do. Complacency has made COVID nothing more than another partisan talking point. There is a “unscalable wall” encircling the White House in a 7 block radius and local businesses have been boarded up/closed for fear of the aftermath. It is absolutely heartwarming to see this solidarity.

I remember watching Chernobyl where coal miners who had everything to lose (and nothing to gain) knew what they were up against when they were coerced into building the underground structure to contain the radiation. One of them asked a government official if he and the rest of the miners would be taken care of after they're done with the job when they get sick...and the response from the official was "I dont know" and I thought to myself "pff typical Soviet government" It looks like this kind of selfish neglect knows no geographical boundaries and have no political affiliation. I doubt the first responders would've responded any differently by not showing up, even if they had known they were up against abestos poisoning

It's the 19th Anniversary of 911, and our death count still grows from the harm done to us. Thank you, Jon Stewart. You are absolutely right. The Corrupt DEMS are still at bungling what all that we could be and should be doing FOR our Great America. My tears are continuing. I remember that day that I just happened to be watching the news. Everything I felt was magnified with the next attack and the next and the next. I cried through them all. Although, by the 2nd plane, we had no doubt that the USA was under attack. Thank GOD for the 4th plane being reclaimed to save more of us Americans. I love you all my fellow Americans. *But, the Corrupt Ones need to GO!!* *Sidney Powell-Weiner laptop-HRC server* • 98,603 views -- esvid.net/video/v%C3%ADdeo-s2JZffZUGhg.html -- Mar 12, 2020 Daniel Smith *SO MUCH YES: Protestors get a taste of their own medicine at American University* -- esvid.net/video/v%C3%ADdeo-3WEh51z1H_o.html -- Dinesh D'Souza 2019 *DAMNING EVIDENCE OF DEMS -- WARNING: ACTUAL CRIME SCENE PHOTOS ARE LOWER ON THIS PAGE - DO NOT VIEW IN THE PRESENCE OF CHILDREN* (This is the hard evidence that drove Donald Trump to his knees.) -- beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2020/08/pedogate-2020-massive-update-3729028.html - THESE PEOPLE ARE SICK!!!! I do not know why some of the images are missing. I think one was Hilary's email to Huma. The others, I believe, were the PEDO icons, and some of their evil tweets, as they have learned to hide in plain sight. Some of them don't even care that we have broken their code, as they are still tweeting about their orders for children or for their yearning of them. SICK FREAKS!! LOOK WHILE THE WEBSITE IS STILL THERE!!! *Human Trafficking Arrests: 3,269 ARREST EVENTS* are mostly crimes against children. qmap.pub/kids -- Why aren't MSM DEMS reporting THIS WONDERFUL NEWS?! #THINK #WakeUP!! #SaveOurChildren -- QMAP DOT PUB is being blocked by facebook leftists / Marxists / Communist / Nazis. *NOW THIS WEBSITE IS OFFLINE.* This just happened. It was fine last night. These Corrupt Ones are very savvy, but we have copies of everything around the globe. THEY WILL NOT GET AWAY WITH THEIR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY. #SaveOurChildren!!! 800,000 children are reported missing every year. President Trump is wanting the USA to kill all pedophiles and satanists who have murdered people and children. We cannot afford to let them exist, to teach others, and share their sick ideas. They must be ended. PRAY for our President Trump, AG Barr, and all the good people who work hard to make America a better place. PRAY AGAINST the works of Hell that some of our Corrupt Ones have turned to for money and power at any cost. #SaveOurChildren #JesusANSWERS #GODisFORus!!

He's the man. Want the end of nepotism and elitism once and for all in this country he's the guy. He is what our nation needs to be strong again without arrogance. Strength in unity and justice. Wish he would just stand up and take about 8 years for the team....be our President.

They like ripping off HIS platform the Daily Show with petty South African propaganda otherwise known as Trevor Noah and ArkAngel. You get that? Trevor NOAH of ARKANGEL? Thats some obsession with apocalypse to give your company and stage name.They like manipulating the "stars" HIS format produced to serve their interest; memes doritos game of thrones, the new nikes and a happy meal contentedness of yuppie apathy, ie Colbert.

If you set aside this speech, John Stewart is pretty far left and about half the country really isn’t going to like him all that much... and yet he still had better numbers than congress! When a guy that half the country doesn’t agree with yanks down your pants and publicly spanks and humiliates you, in your own house, and gets a standing ovation from both sides of the country... you pretty much suck.

If individuals and businesses who scammed the system and claimed benefits of 9-11 funding for lost revenue gave just half of it back there would be no issue here. Fly fishing outfitters in Montana and Wyoming said" a lot of our clients in the financial industry were killed so we need 20 million dollars " and billionaire hedge fund managers said " well we lost our offices we need 20 million for new office space " and politicians who's districts are thousands of miles away with no ties to NYC said " we need 10 million for a 9-11 memorial on main street" not to mention thousands of frivolous cash grab lawsuits. Do a little digging and you'll find so much fraud and waste and opportunistic human garbage you'll be sick to your stomach. Middle Americans are the worst kind of people. They all hated us New Yorkers until they saw a horrible tragedy could get them free money.
