  1. Thank you everyday, Amy and the team of democracy now. Informative news that gives everyone a chance to see what is going on in America and our world. Nuclear disarmament would be a start. UNNCESSARY WARS for profits from all powers of GREED, including ours . That would be a great start. New ideas 💡Free Julian Assange. 🌍 ✨️

  2. In the early days of lockdown, there was a lot of sympathy for "essential workers" who made sacrifices to keep the economy going. Unfortunately, this sympathy has not been rewarded with better pay and benefits.

  3. Russia's military operation in Ukraine is akin to a holy war against the perverse policies of the Anglo-Zionists.

  4. DONT GO TO IOWA… This is an outrage.. This poor little girl was FORCED to have sex, was raped, and is still a child.. If this was a white girl, she would not have gone to jail at all.. This is a disgrace..

  5. WOW SO A RAPE VICTIM HAS TO PAY THE FAMILY IF HER RAPIST. THIS SHOWS THAT OUR COURTS ARE NOT JUST AND MUST BE DESTROYED AND REPLACED BY SOMETHING NEW

  6. Far right facism in Sweden, Italy, China, Russia, USA, Brazil. WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!???!?! WW3 here we come!

  7. Nazism is on the Rise… Around this World… Narcissistic Totalitarian wanna-be Dictators & their Dreams to Control All we do… But Planet Earth will Strike Back… No One Is Really In Charge… Madness is Here, Such Darkness w/ in the Shadows of Light. They want you to carry a dying Baby… & traffickers Gets Immunity… Love Self, Protect Life, Peace…!!!

  8. What kind of justice that a young girl who gets raped multiple times by her Pimp and pays 150,000 dollars to the criminal's family? What a sick state.

  9. Capitalism is not an ethic, it's a process — one that requires losers in order for there to be winners in which living nature and people are commodified for conversion into dead capital.

  10. “U.S. accusations directed at others are always a projection of its own failures and wrongdoing.”

  11. I sure I’m not the only one who dose not remember WHY we have lost soooo many unions? When I was a teen in the 70s everyone was in juniors , how did we go so wrong that important jobs like train operators have such horrible working conditions without even having a day of in a YEAR.

  12. Its because employers are highly sensitive to any form of worker democracy, socialism or communism and they know that those systems are far more constructive to people in general and would deprive them of making a luxurious profit off the labor of others. They want American workers to be ruled by them, coddled. Spoiled, anything but be in control of industry and commerce. They know that those systems are not anti-property but are anti-private property. They know they have to have the US Military on the side to crush anywhere in the world where workers make progress in their own lives. There is no other reason to bear such disdain for workers.
    They know that they must have a government that retards, slows down, rejects, and resists any true human progress and every agency i the government they control functions for them not “Us”. One day what I am saying will make you realize that all these speculations made by you and others won’t any water because the government we have in place strictly exists to crush communism. This is its mission, its sole purpose and is, therefore, not democratic government and not even a good representative government; but is a dictatorship of employers, banks, landowners, super rich religious institutions, who gang up on workers of any class, shape or size, or color, sex, and police are used to intimidate and bully. For this reason they installed Supreme Court Justices who would rule against women, men and minorities. For this reason you and I do not have universal health care. For this reason our public schools are trash. For this reason we are unprotected from disease, economic shut downs, and inflation, they are using all these mechanism as weapon against the American working class. Rail workers go on strike and the first thing the government does is order railroad companies to cancel long distance commutes. Use us rail commuters as hostages and we end up blaming the rail workers because we cannot get to work by train or we cannot get our products in the stores. This is the game they play and they are well organized with money, power, communication between them, they have think tanks, they have institutes, they news media and pundits, they have lawyers, doctors, all working against ordinary working people.

  13. So Fascism is just becoming more popular across the global, we're the rise in communist parties to combat them?

  14. Consider the $7B a down payment by the Taliban on the exorbitant amount of weapons and gear we left them when we pulled out. Let them sell that to fund their regime.

  15. Let me get this straight: Thus far, Railroad Employees ARE NOT ALLOWED TO GET GET SICK OR INJURED ¡EVER WITHOUT PENALTY..?!?!?

    ACTUAL
    PHUCK
    ?

  16. Outrageous that rape victim pays family of rapist! State should be forced to pay damages to her for sick law, and rapist's family charged wage garnishment in payment for " "functional family" classes ,or else go to jail, whichever shakes out first. Dispicable 😠,!
