  1. Let the Saudis take care of it but they don't even think the missile came from Iran. Only the Americans that want war with Iran think it did.

  2. Wow. The chick says she wants to work at Amazon because the name is so cool. And here I am, in a state where they are not hiring, willing to move to one of those states for a steady-paying job. Talk about Needing A Job vs. Just WANTING A Job.

  3. Man so much media coverage over a tropical storm with just 40 mph winds we get storms every spring far worse in the afternoon. Yes folks that's called a "severe" thunderstorm and Yes the media is dying to claim this tropical storm is a Hurricane and that it's climate change you can just look at their faces praying to the climate change gods that hurricanes will strike so they can carbon tax you even if the United States has been dropping CO2 emissions for last 2 decades by double digits due to shale fields those evil Texas cowboys making more fossil fuel! They also want Trump to come out with a marker and mark Alabama again as it will make them feel superior that "Orange Man doesn't know Climate" even if he had nothing to do with marking Alabama but some WH aid. Also when did Hurricanes become climate change related? We had more Hurricanes recorded from 1900 to 1950 then we had from 1951 up to 2019 yet I'm always hearing It's climate change causing more hurricanes! even if the historical data shows the opposite.

  4. People are dying in the USA because of lack of health care, people living in the streets, and we are going to defend the country were 15 of the 18 people responsible for 9/11 that killed 3,000 citizens. What are we doing, we defend others and do not care about our own citizens. Something is seriously wrong with our US President and Congress.

  5. Stay on the kick of hate and murder all the bombs and guns want stop the judgement of the almighty eloheim the Inhabitants of the earth must pay for their indignation hateing and mistreating the first born as if the most high turned a deaf ear to there cries love righteousness and obedience are the three keys 🔑 to turn the judgement of man but greed has blinded ole man

  6. I'll stick my neck out and predict that Antonio Brown will be cut from the New England Patriots. Robert Kraft has already been embarrassed by his own missteps at a massage parlour with underage girls working as masseuses. More controversy is not what he wants or needs. If the two sexual assault charges aren't enough, what more would Kraft need to drop this loser. The Oakland Raiders made the smart move by terminating his contract.

  7. iran did not do it. isreal been wanting to go to war with iran. people wake up, who is going to pay for this war. no more debt, for war. get rid of the federal reserve. false flag. saudi arabia bombed the world trade, allegedly.Remember obama blocked the families from 911, to sue saudi gov't because the hijackers were saudis.

  8. If you're not letting cancer define who you are, then why put up a story about swimming across the water after having cancer? Isn't that defining who you by your cancer? Weird.

  9. Everybody jumping to conclusions on vaping without doing solid research. It's been around for years and this is recent also USA is only country affected🤔

  10. Just make sure the flash flood waters feels most of the dry areas in Texas in a good way cuz you need there it I'm trying not to be cruel or rude.

  11. We have been LIED into war before!!  
    No more war. Please. I'm with Tulsi, no matter what her odds are because she speaks truth to power. She has experience and knowledge and I trust her voice. 🌺Tulsi2020🌺

  12. Nicotine.
    Highly addictive.
    Often abused.
    Zero medical uses.
    The definition of schedule 1.

    Cannabis
    Not addictive
    Hard to abuse
    Obvious medical benefits.
    Put people in cages.

  13. Iran is not responsible. This is the work of the Industrial Military Complex, just like the Gulf of Tonkin, WMD's in Iraq, a clear excuse to steal the resources of yet another country beyond the grasp of world bankers. Kennedy warned us about this group who rely on covet means, right before he was assassinated.

  14. I just don't believe the trainer. She should have come forward when something happen the first time, because that's what I did I didn't wait two hours,two days or three years I informed my supervisors immediately, so what's her excuse? Women hold out for many reasons and her's I believe is (This For That) the money. Men in general need to start equipping themselves with cameras without anyone knowing, because that's what I do on a day to day basis just to protect myself and when someone said I did something or said something little do they know I have all interactions recorded and that's what I do for ME. Some women are just tainted gold diggers.

  15. I'm really confused .25 cents with oil production completely stopped to they already got it back to 50% so why is it .20? Why not 12? or 13? cents?

  16. everyone knows that all school shootings are sanctioned by the government everyone knows that the NSA is responsible for putting the thoughts in the children's heads they have a patent electronic microwave technique to implant thoughts into children's heads men's heads women's heads that they would have never thought of their own this patent has been obviously available to the government since the early 50s half of the people who think they're schizophrenic hearing voices or actually hearing the essay the CIA and the FBI

  17. School shootings you immigrants pilgrims colonizers companies employees corporation mercenaries keep shooting and putting the indigenous American Israelites Indians right here in America the largest continent in the world Canada is North America these companies and they’re employees will soon be speaking Chinese 🤩 say cheese 🧀

  18. Yea tsunami‘s Psalms 82 for Psalms 83 you run the indigenous American Israelite Indians off their land now deal with it hate it or love it the return of the ancient ones 😂😎🤐

  19. That indigenous American Israelite Indians business deals can’t be as bad as the United States corporations deals with foreign corporate monopoly game play monies 🥳

  20. A cancer survivor made history, and no props?

Air it immediately after the "old fashioned" broad cast, that's fine, just be consistent, every day, same time, you know, LIKE TELEVISION!

  26. Saudi Arabia does not have the balls to attack Iran; US help or not. They know that their infrastructure would be decimated. Right now, Iran does not have anything more to lose because the US have slapped on them all the sanctions they can muster but the Saudis are not sanctioned and stand to lose everything if a war starts in that region. Even the US are not going to be striking Iran for the very same reasons because the Iranians have made it very clear that if they can't sell their oil, nobody else will be allowed to do so.
