    8:07 Wrong information. A network has been shutdown because of tax evasion. An amount that would bankrupt the network if it were paid in full. The government had been soft in collecting this debt because of the network's usefulness to the country. This in turn made the network arrogant. The network has close ties to a rival presidential candidate against Duterte: Mar Roxas. Duterte paid the network to air his campaign ad BUT the network refused airing his ad. This was the catalyst for the government to start collecting taxes. Anyway, the Philippine people(the majority) watch the local TV and are divided between just 2 networks: GMA channel 7 and ABSCBN channel 2, thus, "the audience isn't buying this excuse" should be taken with grain of salt.

    A woman was sitting in an abortion clinic waiting room, with her 2yr old daughter on her lap. She was waiting on the doctor who came out and walked towards her. He asked her if she was ready, and she nodded yes. He reached down and took her 2yr old daughter from her lap turned, and started walking away. The woman stood up reaching for her daughter, distressed, asking the doctor what he was doing?! He turned back to look at her, and answered; What difference does it make which one I kill?

If there wasnt info that only 40% people of population came to the voting, that was helped that only 2 days prior the election it was sheduled, and it lasted 8 hours, and no oposition entered parlament, he is 10 years in office, and parlament and court of serbia is on his whim, so yeaaaa, nics democraty we have here right?

    I feel that Wendover’s Progressivism and pro-LGBTQ stance shifted the focus on the Iraq section to be a jab against Hobby Lobby rather than the network that acquires artifacts “of questionable provenance.” If one follows the constellation of Progressive ideals to their natural conclusion then there would be no libraries, humanities, science, history or channels like Wendover Productions. I hope our host’s wish never come to fruition because learning is wonderful and this channel does a great job of exploring presenting new ideas and subject areas.

    I am getting SICK and TIRED of hearing how we can FIX THINGS in the NEXT ELECTIONS?? There will NEVER be another HONEST or FAIR ELECTION until we ADDRESS, AUDIT and ARREST the PERPETRATORS who ILLEGALLY tampered and UNCONSTITUTIONALLY RIGGED the LAST FRAUDULENT and TREASONOUS PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION on November 3rd 2020. The PEOPLE of AMERICA are not FOOLED and NO LONGER TRUST Dominion or any other electronic machines or any other form like mail in Elections again until we CLEAR UP, CLEAN UP and EXPOSE the EVIL CORRUPTION from the last ELECTIONS that were manipulated and definitely NOT TRANSPARENT or LEGAL. THE PEOPLE KNOW THAT TRUMP WON BY A LANDSLIDE, TRUMP IS OUR COMMANDER AND CHIEF & THE PEOPLE DEMAND JUSTICE NOT BULLSHIT with ANOTHER FAKE & RIGGED ELECTION! Every parent knows that if a child isn't disciplined for doing bad or naughty things they will continue to do bad and naughty things because they got away with it without being EXPOSED, HELD ACCOUNTABLE & DISCIPLINED. Bad and naughty POLITICIANS are getting away with murder and NEED to be HELD ACCOUNTABLE & DISCIPLINED. ENOUGH is ENOUGH, WE the PEOPLE DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY and are disgusted by the lack of respect for our RULE of LAW from our POLITICIANS & our JUSTICE SYSTEM. WE WILL NOT FORGET or be FOOLED but "REMEMBER REMEMBER THE 3rd OF NOVEMBER WHEN FRAUD & CORRUPTION DESTROYED OUR ELECTION".
