  1. Dear President Joe BIDEN,🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿,,in 2016 USA general election ,,
    I emailed many our medias across USA advising TRUMP build a dam but ,that water in the dam should go (Flow )all around the world,,,,
    This dam is feelings or united as christians ( breaking race or nationality or economic barriers,,)
    We must show the Gentiles the differences as CHRISTIANS and Gentiles ,,,
    That would even help a Gentile know God ,,
    No nationality or racism,,,
    God bless you
    Amen 🙏🏿
    Our God is a living God we all human beings die ,,,
    This says God is alive ,,
    By faith upon Him USA can be a big brother ,,,
    Overseer ,can establish peace ,law and order on any corner of the world,,,
    ( Shouldn't shrink with in America,,)
    we must have a pride or bond of christianity ,,blood circulations and love CHRISTIANS,,life giving style of JESUS,,
    No race or continental difference ,,will help us in difficult times ,,( individual or if nation at dangers,,)
    If our root is JESUS ,we can stand bold,,we can stand with hope ,( during the times of troubles,,)
    Because human strength is tested failure,,,
    People or country or nationality or racism or languages or our wisdom will no way help us (Work out ,,),( it will work out for a little while,,),
    Only Jesus or our region will help us ,,
    This is our hope that God rose Jesus from dead,,.so that he could help us in this world when all our possible human efforts fail,,,
    We are a people dependant on God,,,
    Other items be one failure,,
    For example ,,
    When my dad became sick ,,the senior doctor and his junior doctors mocked my dad ,, saying if they treat a problems ,,an another problem arise ( the mocked and laughing infront of my dad that they gave medicine for diarrhea my dad got some other problem like headache or fever,,,)
    So after JESUS and faith upon Him helped my dad live an another 30 years ,,
    Own father in law threw food box carrier ( silver food box carrier) saying that he didn't like it bringing food to his son in law ,,( my dad was in hospital with fear and distress about life battle,death or life ,)
    No relationships have any comfort words or physical help or money help ,,
    But faith upon Jesus saved him and even saved his physical life ,,as well ,as knowledge of God,,👍👍👍
    God bless Joe Biden 🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿,,🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿🙏🏿

  2. Such a great interview, thank you. As a mental health professional myself, I so appreciate his comment about cherry picking mental illness as the cause of gun deaths really as a way of avoiding the other causes. He made so many truly important, empirically supported points for us all to deeply consider.

  3. Democrats constant race baiting, hate and division is what causes more racism, hate and division.

    Democrat / Liberal policies are what has destroyed generations.
    Everyone gets a trophy, it’s always someone else’s fault, no discipline, no responsibilities, everyone is special, supporting the criminals, not enforcing laws, attack anyone who does not support the Democrats, anyone who does not support the Democrats is racist, sexist, homophobic and must be silenced……. This is what caused the problems we have today.

  4. Wounded Knee was one of the first federally backed gun confiscations in the history of the United States, and it ended in the massacre of nearly 300 unarmed people.

  5. When are they going to hold these DAs in cities like San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, and New York accountable for gun violence.

  6. Charles Ellis Schumer
    Maxine Moore Waters
    Eric Himpton Holder Jr.
    Hillary Rodham Clinton
    are four of the democrat leadership that should be on trial for inciting violence. These four thrive and salivat on violence that they create. Their actions only further prove that Democrat leadership is corrupt and that they will do ANYTHING to stay in power. Throw Pelosi in as well. And while we're at it throw in all the corrupt left wing District Attorneys too.

  7. OMF-"The strongest gun laws in the world couldn't save my son!" It is to laugh, the US has the world's laxest gun laws. Canada here, we just banned handguns and over 1,500 types of assault weapons. I have a criminal record, I'm willing to bet all the money on earth that I would never be able to ever get any type of gun whatsoever for the rest of my life.

  8. LP reacted d ryt way, she is Kimmy-jka.Monster need of over drama, or over consider ations. She don't deserve *considerationsb. Lp പറഞ്ഞ പോലെ,, ജീവിതം തുടങ്ങിയല്ലേ ഉള്ളു, പഠിക്കട്ടെ.

  10. {TIME IS COMING FOR ALL THEM WHO'S GREED OVER RUNS OTHERS HOPE &DEAMS}. Hate is a sickness that needs to be eradicated from all of the existence just like chickenpox, otherwise any hope of life of happiness will never come true.And

  11. aware USA can give everyone medicare+lower inflation so wages regain value but need to punish all those whom want to stay in Syria like Schiff/pelosi?

  12. There is way too much car violence. Thousands of people are killed each year by speeding vehicles. The Democrats would also like to ban cars.

  13. ✔️ Ukrainian nazis are preparing a provocation with chemicals in Sumy, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported. According to Kiev's plan, Ukrainian troops will first strike at the border areas of Russia, and after staging a "retaliatory effect" they plan to spray toxic substances and accuse the Russian Federation of using chemical weapons.

    Supporting nazism leads to violence, escalation of conflicts and protesting activities. US, enjoy your own creation!

  14. The police were trained and they did nothing. They did worse than nothing by holding back armed parents willing to do what they were to cowardly to do.

    You want compromise, let's compromise.
    Let's rase the minimum age to buy semiautomatic arms to 21, treat juvenile crime like adult crime so the records will actually show up in the NICS background check system everyone already has to go through when buying a gun from a dealer.

    What compromises are you going to make?
    Remove short barrel rifles from the NFA which reduces their velocity and range but makes them ideal as Personal Defense Weapons for home defense?
    Pay for training for any teachers who want to be armed to defend their students?

    The police have no legal obligation whatsoever to protect anyone. Disarming law-abiding citizens will only make them defenseless against armed criminals dependent on cowardly police with no obligation to protect them whatever.
    National reciprocity for concealed carry licenses so everyone has the ability to defend themselves no matter where they are?
