  4. They are shooting at the so-called "journalists" who have reported against Julian Assange. First, they came for him and the press let him down. Now it`s the reporters' turn. Assange would have released the truth to the world about everything that`s going on but he can`t do that because he`s locked up in prison for telling the truth. And the press did everything to help the powers that be to put him there. And now you are whining? Pah…

  5. First of all Pompeo is a liar. What makes America so special? Never ending wars and subjugation of the other western countries which is rather shameful for the banana republics. The US is making mockery of democracy and Human Rights let alone self declare itself a guardian of those principles. A mafia state at its best.

George Floyd incident the man was convicted of many crimes he was a criminal himself he probably got what he deserved because of the fact that he he didn’t listen to lawn force meant he would constantly rebel so I think he got what he deserved and the American people need to understand that the Constitution does not apply to them anymore OK it doesn’t apply to any of us we have to understand now and we have to obey what the law tells us to do OK you people have to realize that you have to understand your protests are not working no matter what you protest no matter what you do you’re not going to change
