    Q.a.n.o.n is a movement to think for yourself and to not believe everything the media and politicians tell you. Brought forth by Military officials on the inside tired of this country's corruption. Do your research. In doing so, you will find a Cabal that runs the world and is losing its grasp due to the fight that Trump is pushing since his inauguration. He can not be bought. When someone says "Deep State" they mean Cabals that are so powerful, they hold/have held high positions in power and do with the world what they please. Nothing is off limits. Where do the missing children go? This is one of many crimes they excel in and they have hid amongst us and our leaders for decades.

    Its called freedom speech, brah. Even when ppl say things you don't agree with. Especially when you don't agree. I see you had an issue with the kyle rittenhouse incident. I suspect you didn't when antifa made groups (). This is why free speech is important. We all have personal slants and biases. Its not our job to censor. But, its also your prerogative to leave as well for personal reasons, I can respect that but don't agree with censorship based on your opinion of what counts as hate

    Why does this interviewer keep referring to the young man as 'they'? She does it twice, later saying 'there' it sounds really unpleasant and unprofessional. He's clearly a man and clearly an individual not a plural!

    Facebook should be removed completely. We should boycott all companies advertising in facebook.

    Trump was literally censored by Twitter for quoting the OFFICIAL CDC
    statistic showing Covid is less deadly than seasonal flu !!! – It's
    out of control now, I don't even like Trump, but it's blatantly clear
    there are very wealthy dangerous corporations, billionaires, and
    Governmental cabals that are lying to the world about Covid – This is
    about making $$$ from covid drugs and control of our societies — It's
    getting scary when these shady people are openly censoring the President
    of the United States Of America !!!

    It's traitor trump's inaction, corruption and lies that's killed 200,000 Americans. The same goes for the GOP Senate and gop governors. We actually don't know when trump got the virus, if he really does. Either trump's lying about getting the virus or he's lying about when he got it.

    Trump’s private Mar-a-Lago club hosted a black-tie “Safari Night” fundraiser for a favorite charity of one of his older sisters. The event included Chinese dancers, a silent art auction and one unusual guest: Sergey Danilochkin, a Russian real estate investor. Danilochkin said, “is that we met a lot of people here who speak Russian.” Another person that attended the gala- Li “Cindy” Yang, the former owner of the Jupiter massage parlor at the center of the prostitution investigation that netted criminal charges. Yang posted photos of herself at the event on a website for her consulting business. The business claimed to offer Chinese clients access to Trump, his family and his advisers at Mar-a-Lago and at the White House, among other places.
