  • I am an M.D.- Read this--As of 9/11, NO VACCINE IS APPROVED...All "vaccines" are still only allowed and "approved for use" under the federal rules and regulations of the "EUA"(Emergency Use Authorization). Without any hearings or mandatory, required debate, the FDA "approved Comernaty" in secret meetings...Look it up.The non-existent injection called Comernaty is the "future Pfizer injection".. It has not even been made yet. It has different ingredients. It has not been tested...It has been "Rubber Stamped" by Fauci for "approved status" when it is made. WTH????..Viewers, Look it up...Haters, Prove me wrong..

    Before watching this the only thing I knew about Belarus was that one of their military helicopters shot down a balloon which was in a prestigious annual race that started in Switzerland (1995). The attack killed the two Americans aboard. Belarusian authorities were notified in advance that the balloons might be crossing their air space. No apologies were ever made.

    Isn't Lukashenko that one dictator that sometimes carries an AK-47 around just to look tough (even though it is loaded with live ammunition)?

    I mean being a dictator is objectively better than being gay. It also better than being straight, like I bet (if you can get over the moral ramifications) being a dictator is the bee knees.

    The national treasury of Belarus was looted by this guy and by Putin when Belarus separated from the Soviet Union. The looted money is what Trump has been laundering for over two decades. Call the Secret Service, which does not give a shit. Every year, international money-laundering exceeds the the annual GDP of the USA. Go figure. I'm a retired banker. Prove me wrong.

    Man, feels like a long time since I've watched one of his segments! Hilarious as always! It's astounding how many dip-shits believe everything the media tells them! Them people who act like someone is a god is beyond me. 1/3 of the population believes him just like 1/3 of our population believes in Trump(f). This is why dictators thrive around the globe! Someone should just take them out permanently! Wherever they are! Seriously, those kinds of people seeking to abuse their position of power for their gain, have no business being in politics. They have no place in this world and hopefully they all will get they deserve, in the next life.

    The American "politicians" Don't have enough to share their message with teddybears because it's done through tiktok.... why use an aircraft to do what the "people" will do on their own? They separate one another on their own plenty well when the "people" gobble of the swill fed to them by media....... your swill not excluded.

    Dunno why Oliver thinks Michael Jackson is a monster. Seems pretty clear that both attempts to attack him were motivated by a desire to extort money from his success, unless there's some evidence to the contrary I haven't heard about??

    Yeah, those flags the "protesters" were carrying were literally the flags that Nazi Germany picked for its puppet Belarussian government in WW2 while they were burning down thousands of villages and doing genocide.

    5:35 so disappointed to see John pushing that lie. Michael Jackson was innocent and the fact that "the biz", especially HBO, continues to try to destroy his reputation despite him being the closest thing to a literal saint we've had in a century is appalling. Do your research. None of it adds up and every shred of evidence points towards his innocence.

    Please please stop adding the laugh tracks to these videos. John doesn’t need them. They really detract from the authenticity of the show. Thanks.

    So why not put sanctions on Saudi Arabia for not having free and fair elections. Also, no free and fair elections in the US so maybe the US should put sanctions on themselves.

    Props to that BBC journalist for giving us all a visual representation. He could have just explained it - allowing us to brush past the absolute horror of that situation. Instead he put himself in that awful, humiliating position so we’d have a visual that was much harder to forget and much more visceral. It takes a lot of courage to do something like that on international TV.
