They are very sensitive people, it's almost mentally pathological.

DizzleMCSTANG88 · October 11, 2018 at 4:36 am

The supreme court isn't meant to be democratic….

Chris J · October 11, 2018 at 4:36 am

The shameful display by Difi and Co did not convince a single republican. But how many moderates were appalled by their actions?

DizzleMCSTANG88 · October 11, 2018 at 4:37 am

The Senate was never meant to be democratic…..

DevilMan D · October 11, 2018 at 4:37 am

Hope he dies

DizzleMCSTANG88 · October 11, 2018 at 4:48 am

Sounds like the devil is in the details btw with the voting laws.

Inspodreams · October 11, 2018 at 4:52 am

Brett Kavanaugh puts the PUB in Republican. He wasn't sure he wanted to persue a law career as he didn't think he could ever pass a BAR. Dems are HOPPING mad at his appointment to the Supreme Court but he has BARLEY had a chance to show us what kind of judge he is. Let's give him a fair SHOT. #breathalyserbrett

Matt F · October 11, 2018 at 4:56 am

Fuckboy Brett

Mangzorz · October 11, 2018 at 4:59 am

Is it just me, or is there a ton of "register to vote for midterms" commercials out right now?

crozet isles · October 11, 2018 at 5:11 am

Your attempts at voter shaming won't work. Run candidates in the Democratic Party that are worth a shit.

sparkee666 · October 11, 2018 at 5:22 am

It's the only strategy that works. Because Conservatives have a smaller voting block, they find ways to
discourage voting.

Is there a possibility that John McCain told Graham before he died to go "all in" on trump to get into trump's cabinet?

TheRedRaccoonDog · October 11, 2018 at 5:30 am

Abolish the senate and POTUS.

Infinite Singularity · October 11, 2018 at 5:38 am

Lol at the fucking propaganda from the banks on this video! Get out of here with that “you can’t control your money” ….fuck you #BuyBitcoin

JumpSpeed · October 11, 2018 at 5:38 am

The chick on this show is very, very dumb. You shouldn't let her chime in all that much.

Jennifer Gross · October 11, 2018 at 5:40 am

Write in the West Virginia primar opponent she was great.

James Hamann · October 11, 2018 at 5:57 am

I'm really hoping you guys do a breakdown of this insane video:

There's always someone trying to fuck us natives over, it's basically American History. Yet they wonder why we hate this country and stick together because that's what we've always had and always will do.

rhonda sampson · October 11, 2018 at 6:22 am

The courts are full of vermin, Time for some D Con! take out all of the dirty R- rats!.

Lisa Leeher · October 11, 2018 at 6:28 am

oktopustrainer · October 11, 2018 at 6:28 am

"Pfft. That's a whole lotta nobodies.
News flash – Not all refugees are welcome here." Everytime that ad starts I kp thinking it's a parody of a rghtwing pundit & thn I'm like 'oh wait that's Michelle Malkin' & it's confirmed.

morgana marvel · October 11, 2018 at 6:32 am

Got to bash women now cause they poll very high for Dems.
They gonna tell menfolk :. Don't let the little lady vote!

Heidi said it was his testimony that caused her to go – no.
Before that, she was yes. So no-one to blame but Brattboof.

Redpy5 · October 11, 2018 at 6:33 am

How do they define street addresses? Could people donate to collectively fund a single apartment for a month to work around this blatant voter suppression? How dare those Natives not succumb to the white man's address system! Can't wait until we abolish the Constitution in favor of something more democratic…

A.H Man · October 11, 2018 at 6:36 am

I don't doubt for a second that many Democrat Party pols who fronted as opposed to Kavanaugh were happy that he was approved.

A.H Man · October 11, 2018 at 6:44 am

The Republicans understand that the strategic goal is to move the political center of gravity to the right by any means necessary–and operate with that understanding in mind. The Democrats may understand that moving the political center of gravity to the left would be good for left policy wins, but most of them are anti-left, except on a smattering of so-called social issues that the exploiting class doesn't give a flying fuck about, so they don't bother trying.

Retrograde Beats · October 11, 2018 at 6:47 am

Do you all sleep on set the videos are 24/7 but not complaining

King Scottish1194 · October 11, 2018 at 6:48 am

Cheating on the vote counting started to be noticed Nationally in 2000 A.D. when somehow the "Recount of the votes was halted by then, the Supreme Court" (Clarence Thomas). This is how the "Elites" try to hang onto power. The GOP complained about FDR "Packing the Supreme Court" in the 1930's. It took Kavanaugh to get appointed, or should I say "Selected" not appointed for the Supreme Court for this process to become so disgustingly obvious that it needs to be reformed to a more Democratic & Representative process Including All of the People in America (for a change).

Patricia MacLeod · October 11, 2018 at 6:49 am

Why do Trump voters cheer being abused by the powerful???

Frank Black · October 11, 2018 at 7:23 am

This is interesting, I thought the mandate of E911 addresses solved this.

robaerto71 · October 11, 2018 at 7:27 am

… and you forgot one part of population which has no address and are over-proportional minorities: PRISON INMATES!

Rob Duncan · October 11, 2018 at 7:33 am

S0 40% of USA people think Kavanaugh elevation is a good move ? Watching from Scotland this looks like you are in a world of trouble , not that we are much better with this Brexit sh*t .

Big Lurch D · October 11, 2018 at 7:35 am

Joe the cunt manchin needs his head removed from his shoulders

White Cosby · October 11, 2018 at 7:41 am

Stay strong ladies, don't let these nasty Republicans intimidate you.

White Cosby · October 11, 2018 at 7:45 am

Never take advice from a Republican.

Diana Aloe2 · October 11, 2018 at 7:46 am

As I said before:- " Accused men AND alledged victims should BOTH be treated as "innocent until proven guilty " Which means NOT assuming the woman or victim is Guilty of Lying !!

THAT'S why police & the FBI should STILL be investigating ALL evidence & all witnesses from Georgetown Prep & Yale* ""

"" NB: Even a Yale Dean was AGAINST Kavanaugh being on the Supreme Court !! ""

Also – Giving ANY hint of appearing to support alledged child molesters like Roy Moore AND now an alledged attempted rapist (Kavanaugh) even BEFORE any legitimate Police or FBI criminal investigation has been allowed to go thru ALL the available information and witnesses is a DANGER TO PUBLIC SAFETY !!!

… + It is cruel to hundreds of 1000s of victims and genuinely WRONGLY JAILED MEN IE: Like The Central Park Five who spent a decade in prison while Trump paid for adverts calling for DEATH PENALTY ( Being the Worldclass Expert in Advanced Lying and Hypocrisy that he is )

PS: Every year there are 320,000 reported rapes on kids over 12 and adults (incl. men) in America … The poor men go straight to jail. The Brock Turners & Kavanaughs … Not so much !! "

White Cosby · October 11, 2018 at 7:52 am

This whole thing was just another GOP attempt to generally intimidate women. They're trying to send a message saying women are property. This was a power play, just like rape itself is a power play and not about lust. They were metaphorically raping all women, saying shut up and get back in your place.

FumblingDylan · October 11, 2018 at 7:58 am

I don't know how big a problem it is but I frequent some online van-dwelling communities (people who live in vans or trucks that are equipped to be a rent-free home in high COL areas, mostly the west coast) and a lot of them use North Dakota (or maybe south, my brain could fart) to get their ID, register their vehicles and carry insurance because of very lax residency laws and lower costs to get these things, compared to the states they want to live in. You can go to North Dakota once, open a PO box and use it to get all your paperwork, leave and then renew everything by mail forever without ever returning to the state.

I doubt there's a lot of vandwellers trekking back to North Dakota to vote in the elections, but I guarantee you someone is going to use this as the official reason why they're making a law that also just so happens to target their massive native population. And if this is common in vandwelling communities, who knows what other communities it's common in.

Lastly, I think everyone on tribal land should sign up with one address. I'm sure there's a store or something with an address somewhere they can use. Just, 4000 people on record living at the hardware store lol.

Joseph Janeth · October 11, 2018 at 8:18 am

Trump 2020!

Bob Dolby · October 11, 2018 at 8:23 am

2020 primary? Smoke another one lol

David Moreno · October 11, 2018 at 9:15 am

17:40 thought that was on my end, not yours.

Josie Fox · October 11, 2018 at 9:20 am

The right wing are between 30 to 40% so they only gain power when they are able to either persuade independents of their lying crap as with Dirty Donald in 2016 or by suppressing the left wing vote. They are a minority party but they currently have all branches of power and the entire judiciary. Here we see the link between the judiciary and voter suppression tactics and why Kavanagh was a crucial win for the Trumpist agenda.

keely _cn · October 11, 2018 at 9:44 am

Democrats need to just take the hit for a few years and cut Manchin loose. He votes with the republicans most of the time. They should just run a real far left progressive against him. They may lose a couple election cycles, but WV was solid progressive blue forever. Paula Jean would probably get even more of the primary votes if she ran again.
