    Michael Gerard Grimm a former republican congressman also a convicted felon, for 20 counts of fraud, federal tax evasion, and perjury, hiring illegal immigrants, and committing wire fraud". Surprise? This seams to be the norm if your a republican senator.

    It's unfortunate people jumped on Todd Akin so much for his comments. Unwanted pregnancies exist, just as miscarriages exist. Since women mourn miscarried fetuses they wanted to give birth to, who is to say miscarriages could not stem from their emotional rejection of an unborn fetus?

    Diane Abbott - What she meant to say, "the left-wingers love to divide & rule".
    Much like the "DNC Slavemaster Club" of America. But, there's always some division necessary. Like you don't belong @ MIT if you're a moron or the dumbest WAL-MART employee shouldn't be the lead physicist @ a Nuclear Test Facility. Just to name a few.

    Alaistair Campbell wasn’t a journalist, he was a former Labour party spun doctor, so obviously he would have preferred liberal democrats to form a coalition with labour as opposed to the conservatives, who as it turns out ruined the lib dem party and national interests.

    I never liked George Bush, but there was one interview of his I LOVED!!! People always said of him that despite his inability to speak well in public, that he was an intelligent "man." I never believed it until his interview with a British reporter who also doubted his intelligence. I can't remember her name, but she did her absolute best to embarrass him and make him look like a fool, but she failed so badly that Bush made her look the idiot. Having said that, I can't believe Bush never made this list!

    I see nothing wrong with saying legitimate rape. I have heard so many women make false claims for attention... His Word chose was spot on... Granted I couldn't tell what he was saying about it rejecting a baby in a rape because the voice over kept talking instead of letting me hear what he said. It's as almost you want to tell me what to think without hearing it myself.

    There is a TON of fake Accounts ALL OVER RUclip with fake names of people supporting Idiot Trump! Don't be FOOLED.
    It's pretty easy to spot these Ass Clowns too. They rarely, if ever have an Icon photo. They just an initial Icon, with a name like: "Nick Worster" or "Curtis Brown.." Click on their name and check out their phony RUclip channel. They NEVER have any content. The Account were set up in 2016 or later, to make Propaganda for Trump. Some of them cannot even write in English very well. What does that sound like to you? These people are all Komrads of Putin.
