    Drop dead you vile liberal pieces of shit… With every advance liberalism makes, our nation is weaker, more violent and less competitive. Our schools, cesspools of politically correct horse shit where everything but learning takes place. You disgust.

    I'm still surprised we have the internet. I never see anything on the news that is real important to our world and the people who are trying to give us information are being jailed and prosecuted for just speaking out.Freedom of speech is always being controlled with old school ways of if you don't have anything nice to say don't say it!

    Sadly current American policies remind me of how soviet government treated so called <dissidents>, how can American democracy afford to do this in its own country?
    After this type of policies, Democrats blaming Russians to loose elections?! Elections was lost by republicans as well.
    Trump is not politician.
    Totalitarian county like Russia exposes American pretend democracy,
    For how long citizens of America demanded to pass the law for GMO labeling?government and so called "people's representatives" never ruled for people's interest.
    what did Russia do? He publicly, very dramatically destroyed tons of GMO products! now, do you think they didn't got a message earlier that GMO is not good for health and sooner or later you will end up with censer? of course they did, and they could care less about their people too but, they played this card timely. This is why people in American think that Russian government is a good guys and protects and care for their people more then American government. (ha LOL)
    This is how you loose in political game, and if you are so dumb that you can't understand that much , why are you in politics, or maybe it's just ignorance, thinking that – <I am the power and I can getaway with everything… ( I believe that's how president Nixon dig a hole for him self) whichever it is, doesn't matter. Outcome is a same- you loose.
    Trump should preserve taxpayers money and stop building the wall, brightest people are living States voluntarily! It's called-
    cutting the very branch you are sitting on…
    This yang journalist being treated like a real criminal for what? Freedom to think?
    it's still not too late to go back to roots,
    American constitution is the bible of politics!
    PS
    Hope not much lost in translation, I tried my best.

    The mainstream media is NOT mainstream. MSM should be called CM, Corporate Media because it is media supporting the corporations, not society or democracy. Democracy Now is much closer to the mainstream.

    Why do we need the FBI? Trump will reveal national secrets without any ramifications!

    BB's answer to if he'd do anything different, "No" was either bs or he's not as smart as I want him to be. Dude was a junkie and making dumbfuck junkie moves – like threatening that FBI agent – is what gave the government the in to nail him. Stay off dumb substances amigo, you're an important figure and we – those seeking 100% govt transparency – need you clear-headed.

    His name is Barrett "Brave" Brown. He is an inspiration to all of humanity.

    I still can't believe they wanted to give him 100 years for tweeting a link to leaked documents that were already public. If anyone hasn't read his articles and book, I really, really recommend them. Good stuff, reminds me of Hunter S Thompson but without ripping him off like so many writers do.

    Respect to Barrett another brave American being persecuted for speaking truth to power.
    MSM is not independent and free to report truth in the same way as embedded reporters are not free to report truth from the warzone.
    The only real Journalism in America comes from alternative news outlets which are not embedded within the state which is why the Wikileaks model is the No1 enemy of the corrupt regime running the Swamp.

    USA is a fake democratic country, run by few rich corporations. It is embarrassing really what happens in the USA in terms of the freedom of speech, press, and basically human rights. And the USA is the country who claims the right to kill other nations in the name of democracy.

    Common man is the enemy of the elite, The establishment is built on false pretense and misplaced trust. When backed into a corner with no where to find fair and equitable treatment the masses will revolt with unison and natural instinct to survive in a hostile world driven by madmen. The slate will be swept clean and the perpetrators of Human indignities will be eradicated as a disease ridden society finally comes to terms with it's blind lust for factional dominion over real or fabricated cultural subsets of the world at large. When we finally unite as a species it will mark a new beginning, and end the stranglehold of ignorance and selfishness. Human 2.0 in the modern age of knowledge and information is our potential and choice to make as a collective society, just need to cull the rot on the vine we have to day in the tree of life.

    Would love to change the world into a more peaceful existence. And need the help from all of you. Is it wrong that all have healthy existence, with freedoms to enjoy life, so long that you do not force displeasure on others?
