    And gasoline has gone from $1.50 a gallon to now over $5 a gallon. Liberalism is a mental disorder. These are facts. Also, Ringleman will not be re elected. Liberalism has failed and has been exposed. To be able to talk for 6 minutes and not give one fact, is amazing.

    “The Pelosi Congress (and its police department) is telling a federal court it is immune from all transparency under law and is trying to hide every second of its January 6 videos and countless emails,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The hypocrisy is rich, as this is the same Congress that is trying to jail witnesses who, citing privileges, object to providing documents to the Pelosi rump January 6 committee.”

    Oh, so many "brave" Republicans… who have to quit before they dare speak out.
    Better late than never but where were you when you could have been useful?

    I read stats that between 1982 and June 2022 most mass killers were white. Evil and crime involve equal opportunity actions and is shared among all races. As the good books says, For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." This is why we all need a Savior…God bless.

    Dear Mr. Tapper,

    US citizens are lazy, that is the problem.

    Don't get me wrong, I am a German, and while I think the situation is a little bit better here, and in Europe in general, the difference is quite small, and more like an undeserving gift from our past than based on our merits. We Europeans – and we Germans as very first – learned in a hard and cruel way that it is the responsibility of every single citizen to keep the state and the country alive.

    In my impression, US citizens ask from their country to manage either eyerything (leftists) oder nothing (conservatives), in a quite ideologic way. Both want their politicians to be good people. From a European standpoint, this seems rather ridiculous. For us, politicians don't have to be good people, but qualified professionals. No one asks for their character, but for their capacity (we like them not to be sinister criminals though) – when we hire a chancellor, prime minister oder president, we hire a director of the company we call our country. We don't want to hire an object of admiration, but someone who keeps the business rolling.

    That's what makes us a small tad less lazy: Our Country is and stays our business (literally and figuratively). We KNOW that you can't trust a director. As business owners (citizens), we KNOW that it always remains in our responsibility to supervise our politicians. Their mistakes still are our mistakes. First of all, it isn't their fault, it is OURS. If we hire irresponsible or inable politicians, we have to fire them, hire somone else or – if no one can be found – do the job ourselves.

    Why are your politicians corrupt? Because you let them be – and maybe, because you participate in their corruption, in one way or the other. What else do you do when you call you representative or senator for a favor? Why is your police force utterly unqualified? Because you are too cheap to pay the necessary cost of a qualified one (i.e. not a few weeks, but between two and three years of college grade education – fully paid – like in most european countries). And yes, why do you prefer to have killing devices for "defense" over treating lunatics who want to slaughter school children (and have a QUALIFIED – not over-armed police)? Quite easy to answer: Providing a treatment for lunatics (and having a qualified police) works; our european figures show that beyond any doubt. But it is a difficult and costly task – a necessary one nevertheless.

    Your 2nd amendment also is a sign of lazyness, sorry for the insult to your founding fathers, they didn't know better, more than 200 years ago. It may not be used against a government which is just annoying; that is what law and jurisdiction is for. If it should protect you against attacks by an abusive government, it is useless. If the government is really violent and evil, it will always have better-trained and -equipped soldiers than your "well-regulated militia". Then, your 2nd amendment is the same as the Article 20 paragraph 4 of our constitution, the right to resistance: the explicit permission to commit suicide honorably. For you as a citizen in legitimate defense, your 2nd amendment will always come too late.

    You have to work hard, persistently and diligently to preserve your democracy and your republic, night and day, 24/7, all year long, and your whole life. You have to do it by political means, bipartisan (and more), and you may not shy away from dirty fingers. If someone wants to tell you that this isn't necessary, that they will serve you and do all the dirty work, kick them in the fork until they flew over the county limits.

    We europeans don't do it entirely different from you. We made the same mistakes, we paid horrible prices in the form of wars and guilt, especially as Germans, and we still do (hopefully not THIS horrible). But we learned from it – and also still do.

    Though it gives me confidence that we elected Mr. Macron (a vain and arrogant, but still highly qualified man), Ms Merkel (a boring and grumpy, but also highly qualified woman), Mr. Draghi of Italy and many others, who may not be great (no one of us would expect this), but keep the train going. OK, you got me with "BoJo The Clown" Johnson and some others, but if the Brits want him, I can't help them. And you Americans didn't only elect a former gameshow host and serial embezzeler into the highest office of your land, but still let him continuousely ruin your country.

    And don't tell me it's the GOP (or the dems) who are to blame. It has been a bipartisan effort to run your politics aground. Politicians of both parties found it easier to play off one constituency against the other, if not deliberately, then out of – again: lazyness. And you participated in this self-damaging behavior, because you couldn't bring yourself to ask the easy questions why your politicians behave that way – again: out of sheer lazyness. One more thing: if you are a Democrat, don't ask why Reps act this way, and vice versa. Ask YOURSELF about the politicians of YOUR OWN party, at least for the next ten years or so. Hold YOUR politicians accountable, and do it the harsher, the closer they are to your own opinion.

    And if you aren't affiliated to one party – why not? Why haven't you opened a new one, or a grassroots comittee? If you complain about the government, corrupt contributions and politicians who don't care for you: Remember that in a republic each people has the government it deserves. There is only one thing you may not be:

  • Mitch Arney on June 10, 2022

    He will be voted out of office and no-one will know because no-one watches CNN, the lowest rated Cable News channel on TV.

  • Bobbi Freedman on June 10, 2022

    Trump is a criminal. Jail him. Do not allow him to run again. Lose the Electoral College. It steals votes. Majority rules. I am trying to process decapitated children. The shooter could not buy a beer. He was free to slaughter. The human brain matures at around age 25. Look at information like this. Quell the immaturity and ignorance.

    The failure of a coup does not negate the fact that there was a coup.
