    This customs systems outage sounds like RUSSIA is trying to get someone in or trying to get someone out. Remember when 2 Russians and poisoned a father and daughter in London. Drump is a Russian asset and I don't see why we have to wait till he gets out of office. The government wants to replace all voting machines in Georgia but do you know that Ivanka Trump has a license for voting machines from China. And you can bet that the voting machines will be invanka trump's and that they will be rigged or bugged. The federal government is corrupt. So we can't look to them for help.

    There was a young man in jail who died by suicide. He hung himself with his own belt. He also was on suicide watch and they had taken his belt and put it in evidence. He died his vary first night in jail. He was an accused of being a serial killer he never had an opportunity to say a word either way. So no one knows. It was also ruled a suicide by the coroner.

    Dr. Dee 2 months ago +1

    The remedy for our armed forces is simple: their mistaken bills should be fully paid for by the Government, their credit reports should be cleared, and they should have full medical coverage as an amenity for protecting this nation which they love, WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY A DIME! Each servicemen is why America has the largest and most powerful military force in the world, who protects the WEALTHIEST nation in the world, so what's the problem? I mean, they do it all for America, EVERYDAY, therefore, they shouldn't be taken for granted by America, ANY DAY! God Bless Our Troops for being a blessing to us, and God bless America. Love you Guys.🇺🇸

    Hello there!
    If we want to make America Great Again,
    Please look at the old maps of the United States of America and borders,
    More than half of the United States is part of Mexico!
    Please make America Great Again by extending the borders of Mexico in accordance to the old maps and we don't need to deport any Mexicans because they are here legally according to the old maps!

    • Windy Hawthorn
      Windy Hawthorn 2 months ago

      I have no desire to be part of Mexico. They have there own problems. And no one can give away Texas.
      Texas joined the union independently and is still strong.
      People I know hate the crime , organized crime and all the drugs coming out of Mexico. Most couldn't care less if there neighbor is here legally here on not. Just no gang members or drug dealer, or crazy drugs please we have far too many for comfort.
      I still remember the mayor of that Mexican city whose head got chopped off. He was a nice upstanding peaceful man. They have enough of there own crazy there and it just bleeds Across the border. I have always said if you want world Peace. Ask your self How do you fix a problem like Mexico. And maybe after that think of how to fix Venezuela.
      Shutting down the border won't stop the criminals. They are properly motivation to find ways around things. They have even built tunnels under the border.

    I thought Trump said he was going to help Veterans and the VA? Another campaign promise down the toilet. Didn't trump say police violence was on the rise because Obama was dividing the country and supporting the black lies matter movement ? What now Trump? Why are officers being shot? A crazy white guy who looks like Butt-head planting fake bombs how typical.

    Is Dale Earnhardt Jr the pilot of the airplane?
    If Dale Earnhardt Jr is the pilot of the airplane that crush, please remind him that a plane is not a
    Nascar race and there are people on board.
    You can drive a plane like you drive a car in Nascar.
    Passengers will determine how the vehicles move at high velocity,
    If you sneeze or cough you can crash and die during high velocity travel.

    "How they do it"
    When I worked in Miami and the company was a machine shop and they hired people from other countries so they could fill out paperwork to pay the workers.
    The company paid 1/2 of their pay and our government paid the other half. My boss bought a huge house with a pool on credit cards and filled out more cards
    to pay the first cards. When he got caught he just filed bankruptcy and kept the house. Life is so unfair to the people who play by the rules. America is being
    exploited by so many people who sneak into the country that no one can keep up. That is the real truth of how they do it and WHY they want open borders.
    This keeps our legal system swamped and gives them the chance to steal social security numbers and start the scam over and over. POTUS knows this and is trying
    to stop it and that is the scam Dems are running. More undocumented people to vote for their crooked way of life. Soon America will just be an empty hamburger wrapper
    and they will go home to the money they have stolen and sent back to their family in another country.
    When I lived in Denver...
    The Left and Democrats (NWO) wanted World War III to hide their crimes and Trump stopped that. Now PROGRESSIVES (NWO) want a Civil war to divide us and hide there crimes. All
    these people do is stay home and fill out paper work to file for money. They exploit our system to pay their bills and stay home and live off our taxes. They love to tax us and file
    paperwork for this money while we work for them. They go to martini bars at night and eat out every day. When I lived in Denver and seen it all. All they do is smoke pot
    and ride around on bicycles. They file papers to get the government to pay their rent. All they do is consume and consume. No contributions to society comes from these people.
    They teach each other how to exploit the system so they can sleep in and go out at night. Drinks, Pills, smoking pot and party at the bar. That is all they care about.
    They are parasites on America. Fat Ticks on a dying hound dog. Iv'e seen it first hand and this is how they do it. That is why they are so mad and hate POTUS because he is stopping this.
    They are killing America and teach each other how to do it at hidden meeting where they fill out paperwork together. That is why there are so many information breaches. They
    hack the computers to get our social security numbers and sell it to each other and leave you with bad credit. We have to put our foot down. Build a wall and manufacture our own
    products in AMERICA. United WE stand and divided WE fall.
    They are so evil!!!
    Thank you for listening,
    American Patriot Gazoo.

    pressure cookers are very dangerous because when i was small my mom was making some beans and rice for dinner, all i could remember is the pressure cooker exploded inside our home causing the beans to hit the walls, sink and windows on impact. none of us were hurt but we stopped using the pressure cooker years later after the incident. we have never used one after our pressure cooker exploded.

      @AbsentWithoutLeaving so you agree that the PPL running our government have abdicated representation of the ppl, in favor of corporations and the top 1 tenth of one percent? That was my point though I softened the edges so as not to offend other viewers and commenters.

      Actually what you are watching is PURE democracy in action. The internet put 'the people' in a position to circumvent the entire representative-government system. And as you can see, it's chaos. Just like pure communism or pure capitalism, it looks great on paper, but it doesn't work in reality. Because people are PEOPLE, not ideal constructs or statistics or logic diagrams, or anything else written down on a piece of paper. When you take away a system of checks and balances and make compromise impossible, you're left with atavistic chaos.
