  1. Remember. Trump refuses to accept refugees from the hurricane crying that he’s afraid of all of these brown people but he invites the Taliban to Camp David.

    How can you Christians support this monster?

  2. If "good people with family values" endorse unregulated pollution, ecosystem destruction, and permanent wars, what do bad people?

  3. Wow ! I wonder now if the blood work that is taken from me is getting mixed-up also…can't believe the medical staff is doing their job that your paying for today.
    I Remain,
    BILLY THE KID
    12SEP2019; 22:40 H.H.

  4. Adults that are drug dealers that are endangering their children and they want to know why kids are getting killed? Sad. China needs us as much as America needs China do not ever get that twisted. As far as the trade war is concerned.

  5. China….China…..China….blah blah blah blah blah blah. Lets see a segment on poisons sent abroad by American companies when banned in country of origin….how about that doosie aye Monsanto? Cancer and environmental destruction to the world with a smile.

  6. Once again, Mix-ups in Fertility clinics that may lead to the demise of a couple's marriage? It's time for us to stop playing God. If the Lord wanted the couple to have children He would have allowed them to do so. Couples should investigate prior to marriage if they'll be able to successfully procreate. Having a family is something that should be planned not simply take place once the couple are married because bringing a living Soul into this world is a big decision that may have great consequences.

  7. Oh my God it's a miracle you guys came out with a video about the news on the day it was about I can't believe it, it must be a sign of the Apocalypse.

  8. Oh, sure, REPUBLICANS… Bail out Big Pharma but call SNAP receivers "welfare queens" and force them to take DRUG TESTS just to get their Food Stamps??? THE IRONY…..

  9. Question – if we are paying out of our a;& for drugs, why are we in China in the first place? I thought we went there only for cheap crap, not crazy expensive drugs we pay for now

  10. Question – if we are paying out of our a;& for drugs, why are we in China in the first place? I thought we went there only for cheap crap, not crazy expensive drugs we pay for now

  11. I find it funny how the media always pushes for more draconian gun laws to infringe on law abiding citizens and yet the vast majority of murders and mass murders are in areas of the country already known to have the strictest gun regulations. If more laws were the answer these areas would be the least violent, yet they are the most dangerous places to live and you are the most likely to be shot in these areas and the least dangerous places to be also have the least gun regulations and allow open carry and conceal carry and do not infringe on the people's rights to be armed. Literally proving, an ARMED society is a polite society. Criminals just don't like doing business in areas where they know they are the ones highly likely to be shot and killed should they pull their shenanigans…

  12. Why aren’t the police speaking up against guns like ARs and background checks? Do they want to be up against people with these kinds of guns? Where are their families? Wouldn’t they feel safer about their partners if these guns and tighter regulations weren’t on the streets???
