    TRUTH: biden is a corrupt politician who received millions of dollars from China, Ukraine and God knows who else while he was VP. His son was part of it and his laptop proves this with all the emails…. his x-rated, drugging photos and videos help to show what kind of people they are….NO GOOD FOR AMERICA….

    whether you watch this video or not….many will…and wake up

    Nobody to blame but the US govt for overdependence on china for basically everything & as you can see, it has a ripple effect on all sectors, including broadway.

    America still refuses because of the GOP to accept that people like me, will never go back 'ever ever ever' go back to work because entire industries could take 10 years to come back if they do! We are living in a horrible time that the media is only covering the tip of the ice berg as the 10s of millions of people will become homeless very soon!

    Is it just me or does it seem we all have to vote for Trump. Considering the efforts of deception, censoring, and false stories they make up to try and stop him. Obviously the Mainstream Media like CNN and these people in the Democratic Party are panicking about something. I may not like everything Trump says, but one thing I do know is he loves this country. He's lost billions already being president. I just have to see what these maniacs are hiding. I'm voting Trump. I've decided.

    Lobby the public to wear their masks.
    Lobby states to do real contact tracing.
    These things need to change in order to bring back the arts.

    I can't think of any industry that deserves to go out of business more than Broadway.

    No Virus exists. But, you lie very well. Nice story. A bit orchestrated and fake like the virus. Doesn’t the FBI promote false flag attacks and then come and pretend to be the hero’s. The FBI is the most corrupt intelligence agency in the entire world. The FBI also oversees the NAZI FAMILY FUSION CENTERS which do domestic spying on innocent American citizens worldwide especially intellectuals. The FBI are just anti-American GangStalkers who guilty of espionage crimes against American citizens. Julian Assange and Edward Snowden are an example of two REAL HERO’s and TARGETED INDIVIDUALS of the FBI GangStalking Federal Criminals.
    Hold your horses, the charged ones are being smeared in the media. Innocent until proven guilty. That’s what the FBI says? The charged party’s have not had the opportunity to respond yet, while you falsely assume they are guilty.

    As many as a dozen conservatives, many wearing Make America Great Again ball caps, were attacked by Antifa thugs outside Twitter headquarters in San Francisco.
    A police officer was also injured in the melee after Antifa pelted the group with rocks, bottles and other debris. https://www.toddstarnes.com/politics/multiple-injuries-trump-supporters-attacked-in-san-francisco-outside-twitter-hq/
