Dems and libs are ruining the country

The Democratic Party is not the same it once was. It has become the party of hate. All they talk about is trying to destroy Donald Trump.
When are they going to wake up and realize that he has been out of office for 17 months? They need to get their heads out of the swamp and start moving our country out of the current mess this administration has put us in.
The border crisis, rising crime, inflation, gas prices — the list goes on.
All you leftists keep knocking Rep. Elise Stefanik because she supports Donald Trump. She is a rising star in the Republican Party, and she will be in office for many years to come.
On Nov. 8 the Big Red Wave is coming, and again in Nov. 2024 a second Big Red Wave will finally flush out the swamp in D.C.
The Democrats have lost touch with reality. We need to get our country back together.
Let’s be proud to be Americans, salute and honor our flag, bring back patriotism, respect all men and women in uniform.
If you don’t believe in any of these values, then you have the freedom to leave. God bless the U.S.A.

Call out Stefanik  for election lies

The House Jan. 6 committee hearings have been very powerful. Listening to the testimony, from average people who were just trying to do their jobs.
How they ended up being threatened and harassed and some having to leave their jobs brought tears to my eyes.
How could this happen in our country?
Every witness has told their story and has assured the American people that the vote in 2020 was accurate. This was not a stolen election. Joe Biden won.
This has not stopped #45 and Rep. Elise Stefanik from continuing to lie about the election.
Their lies led to the bloodshed on Jan. 6, 2021.
We must call out Stefanik.
We cannot let her continue to spread the lie. She took an oath to our Constitution as did some of the witnesses.
By knowingly lying, she is not fulfilling her oath.

Stefanik used to be a reasonable, moderate republican until she got power hungry and went all in on the crazy trump train. 
Jack Hunter thinks the dems have changed?? How about the demise of the once respected gop taken over by the trump cult, still justifying his attempted coup…which he’s still working on?? Yes there are real issues we need to focus on, but saving our Constitutional Republic from these maniacs is number one.
What exactly are the gop doing to help solve problems instead of just constantly complaining and blaming? What exactly is Biden supposed to do about high gas prices when the companies are making billions in profits from all over the globe??  How about inflation around the world coming out of a pandemic…is Biden responsible for that, too?? The Keystone pipeline was not used by us and wouldn’t have helped us, abd the US has plenty of oil fields, so any other ideas? 
Females are also in the fight of our lives for fundamental rights to privacy, health, equality and liberty! Scary times, indeed, but it will be our end if Republicans win this fall.

Biden should ask Mr. Trump what to do about gas prices, seeing as during Trumps presidency there seemed to be no issue with gas prices and inflation. huh.

Ignatious P. Reilly

I’m not. Their price gouging in this environment are disgusting.  If they were allowed to refine they would. You know that. The green initiatives have them scared so they are greedily reaping all the profit they can right now, exactly like ANY other buisness with no regulation would do. The issues we are facing are entirely the making of Biden’s environmental policies. I don’t see how that can be argued.

You’re not covering for them…and then you go and cover for them.FYI, most of the civilized nations of the world are onboard with “green initiatives”, and the science is only disputed by those who seem to want to cover for the oil insdustry (or express hatred for liberals).
My point has data to show their profiteering. Your point is subjective at best. Thanks for making my point.

Who Ville

Why are gas prices up across the globe?  Is Biden to blame for that too?

Zachary Parker

Stop, multiple oil executives pushed back and said that Biden was lying. The said if he cuts the regulations and open back up the leases he shut down that the can pump 2,000,000 more barrels of oil per day.

Since the oil companies’ average 300% increase in profits over last year, 2021Q1 has been posted here and is readily available, and in light of the billions in subsidies they receive, I think you owe an explanation for why you’re covering for them? Do you have some vested interest in their apparent financial success? That’s never a concern of yours.


They can pump all the oil they want, but they won’t, as there is a shortage of REFINING capacity. Having billions of gallons of oil around does nothing if you can’t refine it into gasoline.   Opening up new drilling leases is BS.  Oil companies aren’t even looking to do that, they need to get more refinery capacity.  I guess no one remembers they shut a few down before and during the pandemic and haven’t brought them back online since.

We knock Stefanik because she supported a fascist coup. She shouldn’t be on any stage speaking at all. Also because she has done nothing beneficial for upstate. The Trump train fell off its hinges and Republicans took a hold of his insane policies because it suited their hyper religious nonsense. The Dems lost touch with reality? Of course the Dems have their issues. They’re just as corrupt as the Republicans, taking money from big pharma and big corporations to do their bidding and refused to protect us because of two rotating villains that they constantly blame but have 100% power over. At least they didn’t support an outright fascist and still parrot patriotism like our country means anything anymore. I mean, slavery… endless wars… corporations taking over daily lives… the militarization of police.. the Christian nationalist takeover of the supreme court. The common folk have had enough, it’s time we focused on the middle class and the less fortunate. 

Zachary Parker

We see what the democrat plan is for the lower and middle class, inflation and high gas prices. Keep voting democrat and you will know why your great grandmother washed her tinfoil and saved the bacon grease.


Jack Hunter, you’re dead wrong and if you don’t believe it you are also free to leave the country. And which God are you asking to bless the USA?

Who Ville

When is Donald Trump going to wake up and admit he legitimately lost the election 19 months ago by 7 million votes?

Who Ville

Trump-appointed federal judges, the Supreme Court, Bill Barr, and Ivanka Trump all say different, but you do you lol.

The January 6th committee has proven beyond a doubt that tRUMP is clearly mentally unstable.  Can’t wait for him to have his final melt down and go to jail

Yeah, here’s just about everyone’s consensus who’ve seen it:
FACT FOCUS: Gaping holes in the claim of 2K ballot ‘mules’Praised by former President Donald Trump as exposing “great election fraud,” the movie, called “2000 Mules,” paints an ominous picture suggesting Democrat-aligned ballot “mules” were supposedly paid to illegally collect and drop off ballots in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
But that’s based on faulty assumptions, anonymous accounts and improper analysis of cellphone location data, which is not precise enough to confirm that somebody deposited a ballot into a drop box, according to experts.
TDS lives on and is the glue that binds the MAGAs.

Zach     we all know  tRUMP will never admit to anything….. it’s always someone or something elses fault. 
TRUMP’S  COGNITIVE ABILITIES          Shall we mention the time TRUMP 👿 stumbled down the ramp at West Point?  Do you remember the time trump tried to change the course of a hurricane with a sharpie? 🤣 Do you remember when trump lost his limousine? 😂  Do you remember  when tRump slurred his words and said,  “co-ve-Fe”, “yo-se-mite”, “hamberders”, and “oranges” (when he meant “origins’)? 🤣Do you remember when trump called Tim Cook, Tim Apple? 😂   Do you  remember  when tRUmp referenced George Washington taking over airplanes and an airport during the revolutionary war? Do you remember when trump held his glass of water with two hands like a toddler? Do you remember the time that there were dark brown stains on the seat of tRump’s white golf pants?  🤣 Do you remember the time tRump had toilet paper hanging from pants as he climbed Air Force One?  Do you remember trump talking about  raking the forest? Or dropping a nuke on a hurricane? Or suggesting injecting disinfect…to a doctor? Do you  remember  trump, when president of the U.S., saying  that he  had met with the President of Puerto Rico?  Do you remember trump passing a cognitive: Person, Woman, Man, Camera, TV?   Do you remember when trump thought about  buying Greenland?  Do you remember when trump called  for a boycott of Coke while he was still drinking it?   How stupid is it to do just one of these things? 🤣😂    Steve Bannon, a trump crony, said,  last year, that he believed that trump is suffering from “early onset dementia”.  (Trump’s father, Fred, died with Alzheimer’s.) 🤣It’s nice having an adult as President – someone who can speak intelligent, full sentences and someone who seems to respect all people equally (including women

Jack Hunter   the Republican party is no longer    it’s now the fascist insurrection party.  GOP stands for GREED OVER PEOPLE.  The party wants this country to be for rich white people and everyone and everything else is substandard.  They want to go back to the 1950s.  There’s only a few republicans worth anything and one of them is Liz Cheney.
