    Isn't that the same guy that got in trouble for making "death to Jews" type video a year or two ago?

    Yes, but that happened this year as well. He's certainly on a roll isn't he?

    A Colorado Republican introduced a bill that could cripple Venezuela

    A House Republican introduced legislation last week to bar the U.S. from importing petroleum products from Venezuela in a push to cripple the growing authoritarian regime in the South American country.

    Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Colo., introduced the Protecting Against Tyranny and Responsible Imports Act, or the PATRIA Act, that would target Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro after he stripped the country's democratically elected national assembly of its power and authority.

    According to the bill, the proposed ban on imports would last until the assembly's power is fully restored.

    Like he wanted to pass a bill that would not allow business to make deals with Venezuelan companies or something like that?

    There was talk in the news, but I don't know how far that went. Don't know if he did it or not.

    You keep ignoring the very clear statistics that economic anxiety was not a factor in choosing Trump over Clinton. Because you want to.

    Report: Mitt Romney Will Run for Senate if Orrin Hatch Retires

    Former Massachusetts Gov. and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney is planning to run for Senate in 2018 if Sen. Orrin Hatch decides to retire, the Utah Policy website reported Monday. Hatch previously said he would run if his and his wife’s health is good, but has not yet committed to running for an eighth term. The senator said earlier this year that he would consider retiring if an “outstanding person” like Mitt Romney were to run for his seat.

    To anyone who's ever been betrayed, lied about, ridiculed, treated unfairly and had their dreams crushed by bullies, I can't think of many things more inspiring than Hillary being back on her feet on that book tour.

    Just another Youtube celebrity stirring shit to get clicks. When you're the biggest, richest Youtuber you have to stir the biggest pot of shit to stay on top.

    I dont agree that doing this would be bad because it feed the Maduro propaganda because for years Chavez/Maduro have been doing that without the United State having to do anything.

    I also can see the point that Coffman is saying, just the last week Maduro said thay if neccesary he will become a dictator so he is able keep Venezuela in good hands and keep the peace.

    But at the same time this would mean another blow for the Venezuelan economy making harder for the people living there to get goods in legal ways.

    I mean, /come on/ dude.

    But the media was more interested in giving Trump free air time.
    Encouraging people to check Hillary's website for deeper policy details is one of the things I've been insulted for as a Hillary supporter. Right here...on CBR...where that kind of shit doesn't normally drip to. "Check the website" is one of the rallying cries of the anti-Hillary crowd. Seriously. I'm stuck in the Twilight Zone. Help?

    In 2016, checking the website should not have been a difficult thing to do. Unless, of course, you're really...really...lazy.

    Not sure if this was covered earlier, but apparently a co-host at Fox & Friends asked if the 9/11 memorials may one day be removed:
