TYT SOMETHING IS WRONG!! Someone (youtube?) UNsunscribed me from your channel! None of your videos were in my feed and i know by now you guys post so often so i went to the channel and had to re subscribe!!!
Somethings fishy here!!
Here is my take.. Trump can't get what he wants, to payback those "special" supports.. Therefore, the supports, have to pad the pockets of any Dem., that will accept a ; contribution, bribe, and or kickback.. Trump comes across as one slick basters... Thanks...
Obama had no idea how corrupt the democrates were, he didnt even seem to realize the republicans were corrupt for years I didnt know he made a ban on corperate lobyist money to the DNC but dumbass dems reversed it immeadiately.
Wow, that's the most, sucking on obama's dick so hard, comment i have ever seen. Obama is also corrupt. He took money from Godman Sachs and had their lobbyists and execs working in his administration. He was okay with passing watered down financial regulations. He said he was going to break up the banks but didn't propose any legislation to prove otherwise.
both sides take money be clear. difference is DNC does not vote for banning folks based on religion ,dont vote to take away womens rights, dont vote for pollution regulations to be taking away. DNC not perfect ,but way better then RNC. DNC not ripping families apart. lets just keep fighting DNC so RNC can continue to control everything. DNC does need to make changes but we have bigger fish to fry right now.
That attitude is why Democrats LOSE everything. Because voters are finally rejecting the false choice of 2 corrupt parties. There are more INDEPENDENT voters I the country than dems or reps. People want real choice sand leaders that will actually fight for policies that benefit ordinary Americans. Leaders at the top of both parties are only interested in maintaining power and filling their pockets. No more. Politicians need to start EARNING our votes.
John Pieloio I'm tired of hearing why drumf is in charge blaming it on the democrats bullshit! You got exactly what it was you didn't want but voted for it anyway! He's the president cuz you fricken idiot voted for him that and Russia played to!
+HankBlockOG That's what they want you to believe so they can keep raking in all that sweet donor money. Bernie Sanders proved during the primary that you can win just on an honest progressive message and advancing policies that help ordinary Americans. If Hillary hadn't had the advantage of name recognition and the backing of the entire DNC establishment and corprate media Bernie would have beaten her. Justice Democrats are going to run dozens of real progressives in the 2018 midterm elections, none of whom will be in corporate money. The country is finally starting to connect the dots between money in politics and our corrupt system. Republicans, Democrats and Independents, all voters are finally waking up to the reality. When politicians actually represent the voters we see that and we respond.
HankBlockOG Wrong. They lose because they don't stand for anything. They lose because they consistently sell out their base in favor of policies that benefit the wealthy and well connected. They only fight for social causes that they're donors approve. But when it comes to fiscal
policy, money in politics, foreign policy, trade agreements, unions, tax policy, climate change, healthcare the Dems are SPINELESS.
Exactly the reason why the moderate Dems are so damn scared of the corporate donor class and why they're remaining quiet even as they watch the latter openly and blatantly collude with Trump. They saw firsthand how much damage those people can actually do, which is why some Democrats are changing things very silently and cautiously now, and others are happily being patsies.
A Nonymous Trump supporters are the most intelligent well informed people, I know the country is going to do great with this POTUS. Finally do nothing Obama is gone...8 long years of a stagnant economy, no growth and he regulated our jobs away based on false science.
Get back to me in 4-8 years, we'll see how your stocks are doing haha
For now, you go ahead and just keep paying that middle man to manage your portfolio for you.
You realized they repealed a law requiring your stock managers to act in your interest? So don't expect to be able to press charges now if it all goes to shit and they make off with a million dollar paycheck.
I don't care for tyt, but I adore Jimmy dore and aggressive progressives. Can tyt label the videos so we don't miss AP and Jimmy? Jimmy knows what's up and understand the common folk, where some of the tyt peeps and writers may have a disconnect.
Jimmy, I went to the Unity tour here in Salt Lake City, Utah. Just like you mentioned, Bernie is on point with how we're going to get things accomplished. Tom Perez, when he spoke, kept saying "this is what the Democratic party should stand for", or "this is what the Democratic party should do". Should, should should. Should is something that I should be saying from the outside in. Should tells me that you have no freaking idea how to do it, or you haven't taken the damn time to put together a plan to do it.
When you have the resources of the DNC at your disposal, and yet are still saying should, there is something wrong. What is it that's wrong? Well it sums it up when you hear that the establishment is calling the "Unity Tour" the "Bernie Bandaid Tour".
I did yell out "MEDICARE FOR ALL" as Perez was speaking, and then he said "and Healthcare is a right". I don't know if that means this is something the Democratic party "should" stand for, or if it is something they WILL stand for, but Tom didn't give me much hope that the Democrats have moved beyond platitudes into policy.
Trump declines to call mass killings of Armenians a genocide: http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/330215-trump-declines-to-call-mass-killings-of-armenians-a-genocide
Just for the "Cenk Armenian Genocide denier" trolls out there. Cuzz there is one in every comment section.
You don't have to be a nutcase like Alex Jones to see that corporate money has completely corrupted both parties of our government. It's pretty obvious if you pay attention to the policies our joke of a government passes.
They're both "right" wing. The "right" believe in profits over people, no matter who they rip off, what they wreck, or what dies to get those profits for themselves. They behave as though selfishness and greed are godly virtues, while sharing and cooperation are socialist/communist evils.
they are all corrupt..
SYOP VOTING FOR INCUMBANTS
one term each, never more, then the evil stops.. but you all refuse to make that sacrafice, you all want to have the cake as well as eat it, the evil... IS YOUR OWN FAULT
you all refuse to fight
you all deserve nothing more than slavery
+wel1968 For fuck's sake. You're on the internet do your own research if you truly care about it. No matter how much proof is thrown in your face you won't believe it because you're a blind partisan hack. You want proof? Look up Follow The Money. It shows corporations donating to both parties and not only do they donate to both parties, they donate less money to the Democrats meaning the Democrats are selling out for even less money than the Republican scumbags.
fake news, talking head spewing things they can not proove... proove
they take money, show the proof, do your job as journalists.. but no,
you just make claims, un supported... you want to serve? you want to do
right by the people who support you, then get your hands dirty, prove
who is taking money from who, or this is just fake news
As a Hillary Clinton supporter myself, I do not think people really care about this issue like they think they do - we beat Bernie Sanders, even knowing he did not take corporate money or lobbyist money and morals only matter if you win and he did not. The vast majority of the Democrats both in New York and California chose Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders and the majority of the Americans by popular vote by one person one vote chose Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump and Sanders. Jimmy can call 70 million people evil and corrupt. If he wants to, but a lot of us would just label you a sore loser. Keep selling tickets to your comedy show, Jimmy because in the end, that is all you are - just a bitter, defeated comedian.
No the majority of Americans did not choose Hillary Clinton. Hillary would have lost the popular vote in a landslide, just like the electoral, if the millions of illegals who voted, and people voting twice and three times, and the Clinton rigged voting machines were taken out of the equation. If a candidate has to cheat, and override the will of the people to win then they need to stay the hell out of politics. But then again the establishment doesn't play by the rules.
Actually thats not true. Polls done prior to the South Carolina primary for example showed huge numbers of African American voters thought Sanders was serving the rich and would reward his wealthy donors once in office. People do care about these issues but people are manipulated by the corporate media and uninformed sadly.
@TurdFurgeson571 Bernie Sanders is a fine gentleman, but he is a one issue candidate, we needed a president who both protects Pres. Obama's legacy and understand foreign policy for which she had both traits. None of anything that Bernie Sanders promised you would have happened anyway. You do understand that Bernie Sanders greatest flaw is his kindness right - the same as Jimmy Carter - Presidents do not create issues - they find them and unfortunately we're going to have to deal with Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, North Korea, Isis etc.
Personally, I think that in having learned about how much the level of corruption has affected the TWO political parties in this country, I am so done with being a Democrat. I also would NEVER want to be a conservative Republican because the alternative is NEVER really better. So I decided to be an Independent, but with progressive leanings. No wonder the state of our democracy is in total jeopardy!
+Cynthric's Gaming Channel stop inferring that I stated an endorsement of shillary. I'm merely commenting on how corrupt and jacked up the DNC is that these money hungry pricks will sleep with their "enemy" for public grace and gold coin...
when I saw the title i taught "off couuuuurse" ... thats why they preferred Trump to Sanders... if you ask coorporate democrats of all the pres candidates who they would have wanted elected it would be 1 Hillary/2 Trump/3 anyone else/4 no one / last Bernie
As soon as lobbying involves money, gifts or job promises over a certain amount yes. We can argue what that amount should be ideally, but that doesn't change the fact that right now it's legalized bribery
WOW....politicians taking MONEY. You guys are so amazingly smart. And Democrats even. So what are YOU guys? Independent Liberal Progressive......uh, Democrats? Our Great Leader Bernie used to be an Independent. Right? But he decided to run for President as a Democrat. So what is he? So what are you?
I GET IT, ok? The Democrats are money-hungry hypocrites. What Party are you guys? Liberal Progressives.....a cause in search of a movement.
I do agree with these geeks about one thing.....Rachel Maddow has absolutely lost her mind. Media success does that to a lot of people, but she was totally ripe for that.
Seriously. I used to watch her show.
For all those who say that TYT never points out the bad things in the Dem. party, here is yet another video of them doing just that. They aren't perfect, but they do tend to call out faults on both sides when they are obviously doing something outright against the population of the country.
The more this stuff goes down, the more it shows just how terrible a President Obama was. He was obsessed only with looking like a great man and a great President, but actually being one wasn't within his list of priorities. Thus, he took no steps to ensure the great things he did possessed some level of permanence, and now Obama has no "legacy" for history to look back on other than his popularity.
It's more of him not really knowing how the Government works it seems. That poor guy might have been pumped full of fake news and propaganda for years. I know folks that really think Obama was not born here still. I even tried to tell them that is was hard to get into the FBI let alone slipping past security into the white house and becoming President without heaps of documentation. Try getting a passport without proper ID I told them. They can actually prove their theories to be true or false. Like trying to get Welfare without proper identification. Even a drivers license. It's crazy.
Wow, Bernie really steps on their dicks when he mentions the Waltons! ha ha. That must piss off the DNC then. I refuse to shop at Walmart, would rather go to a thrift store. Can get the same things you need, for less and the money won't go to these wealthy fams.
I find the passion and honesty of these three guys to be genuinely inspiring. I am glad TYT still has such strong voices on their payroll despite the recent push for recruiting establishment journalists.
"Roemer announced his candidacy for President in May of 2012 after forming an exploratory commitee. Roemer's bid for the Presidency was never really taken seriously. The Republicans kept him out of the Presidential debates and Roemer courted endorsements from various fringe political parties. Roemer refused to accept contributions of more than $100 dollars per citizen, which didn't net him much campaign cash, but he did get a lot of publicity, especially when he starred in an ad produced ny Stephen Colbert's PAC."
Article from the Daily KOS
Doesn't sound like a bad guy, I remember him from the 2012 election cycle, I would have given him my vote if he wasn't with the republicans and he made it far enough.
1) Vet's and active military don't get free college. They work their asses off--risk their lives for it. 2) It is a bitch to actually get that degree out of the current system. It's not a magical check. 3) There is a very stringent set of requirements. Depending on the college, you can still have financial issues pop up causing serious catch 22 problems. 4) There is no free college. Someone always fits the bill. 5) It's self defeating to avoid higher education for the gen pop with aspirations of a first world economy. 6) If you keep limiting the financial field of those who can afford it: the majority at large will remain high school level and non vocational work force. Even Vocational Schools take money. 7) That leave low level (Minimum wage and Factory Workers). Which is a third World Build. Which will only yield Third World results.
I didn't like it either. I tried finding what it was he was talking about. I could find transcrips where Rachel Maddow talked about the E-mails, John Podesta and Wiki Leaks but nothing on this International act of war over them.
This did feel like a cheap-shot; a misplaced one at that.
Not very classy hit and run at a high-integrity investigative journalist. Kinda cheap to discredit Democrats by shooting at a liberal media person. Probably a failed attempt at comedy, or to steal audience from MSNBC? Myopic move in any case, for it only proves right wing critics right, that lefty puritans are suicidal.
Russian mob prob got Trump out of debt which is why he doesn't want his taxes released so you can see it. I don't even need an 'anonymous' source. I just put two and two together and figured out that someone is pissing me off.
Not at all. I also, was attempting to avoid being rude. I've just had some weird trolling on here and wasn't sure if in fact, you were. It was the what I found to be a think tank reference. The above gentlemen/ lady isn't using much grammar.
Bernie will be too old. I love how you guys keep saying this. If you want that old fart in office for a few months so he can just kill over, go ahead, please. Please obsess and worship this guy. As you said, the boomers are dropping like flies, he's going to drop too. Let's hope it's sooner rather than later.
Melanoma Trump: _"Been there, done that."_
I can see that Jimmy would be far too truth-based for your liking ... and too funny too. I've noticed you have a very underdeveloped sense of humor ... among all the other things about you which are known.
democrats and republicans are on the same side when it comes to certain issues. money talks not protesting, washington isnt paying atention to that shit at all and never will. show them the money and they will act.
How Obama's Legacy will save us all in the long run. The money that was put into solar technology has now broke new ground in efficiency. And it will only get better from here. With the help of CEOs like Elon Musk, we should survive the Trump blip in History and begin to make real history.
Those carbon credits helped Musk a lot. This was taxpayers' dollars helping taxpayers in the long run. There are many government programs that went on to help discover and invent new technologies that would ultimately help the American public. It is just another method of pooling money to get to a certain goal. Here's an old news headline. Elon Musk's growing empire is fueled by $4.9 billion in government subsidies
JJ Valez its more like private industries like Elon Musk working to improve the technology and making it cheaper and more Attractive. Opama tried by heavily investing Government money into companies like solyndra and that was complete failure. pretty much people will make science go forward, the government... not so much unless it kills people, or makes the bureaucracy a bigger pain in the ass
Art of Wisdom, " Dore coats his venom and cowardise behind piety and selective statistics" saying this after implying that alex jones has courage... alex jones and his politics is constantly attacking the most powerless people in society. It doesnt take courage to go on the radio and talk about how poor people and immigrants and foreigners are causing all the problems in your society. It takes courage to call out the propaganda designed to dehumanize those people and all working class people. That is what jimmy does and that is what alex pretends to do.
I agree with the view that this Dore dude is like Jones on the left...with more integrity but less courage. Alex Jones dares to bare his sexist racist conspiracy nutcase chest, Dore coats his venom and cowardise behind piety and selective statistics.
The U.S. Cabal, Oligiachy, & Plutocratic Syndicate: this group includes, corporate Democrats and Republicans senators, reps, congressmen and congresswoman, The Deep State, divisions of the Main Stream Media, Rogue Bankers and other financial institutions, Military Industrial Complex which includes the private defense industry. There may be other individuals and groups associated with this syndicate too. The info in this video shows a small portion of how this syndicate works.
How you gonna leave out that the Podesta group was the primary lobbyist for Uranium One..? That would be case-in-point anti Red-Baiting 101... I thought we were talkin bout RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA; am I wrong?
i just checked into to see if Jimmy Dumb as a Doreknob accused anyone of having Parkinsons again. Oh yeah none of these idiots know how lobbying works. Thats like saying they share the same lawyer so GUILTY.
