  • NBC/fake news!
    You guys know they ain't gonna be a recession. They just hate president Trump so bad, they will do anything to see him fail. Such a shame

  • Russia joined Hitler in his campaign. Hitler signed the Molotov pact with Russia in 1939 then he attacked Russia. The lesson liars cannot be trusted. Signing a peace pact with a liar, is letting him put a knife to your throat. Hitlers first attack was Germany. The German people were forced into excepting Hitler as dictator. The German people did not like Hitler, and most did not not agree with his tyranny. Hitler loved parades, he wanted the the world to believe Germany was united with him, that was all a lie.

  • This is the problem with Parents & the disciplinary action they REFUSE to take with their children from the get-go — be it a simple punishment for an inappropriate choice of behavior on the child's part, or by intervening with psychological and/or psychiatric medical attention for chronic mental health issues…

    …or calling the cops for a ride to juvi with the local Police Officers; the Crime? Incorrigible Behavior.

    If you don't give your child love, guidance, and appropriate expectations for moral behavior, then you're probably going to have many struggles with local governmental authorities while s/he's living with you.

    One should never "parent" out of guilt; it's harmful to the child. And as with all the mass shooters, it's potentially harmful to the general public.

    So sad. So utterly sad.

  • Dumb white woman πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ your kid is going to jail πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • No phones in school brilliant genius. I watch workers on the job with their cell phones. Home depot employees in parking lot on cell phone, county workers city maintenance workers on the job sitting there on cell phones. The work force loses so much to cell phones on the job.

  • We have 33 military bases around Iran they have never attacked anyone!! Be sure and join the military and go die in Iran for vile Israel people. The vile Talmud is Law in Israel and they hate Christ and we give them Billions. How about that 10% for the middle class folks …maybe if he hadn't gone golfing 215 times costing us millions he could get that going but that would be GOOD for the economy right? Trump is the best president Israel ever had huh? By the way he was a Democrat before he ran for president.

  • When Trump says stupid people are running it and we can't continue paying 500 billion a year I understand he still doesn't know how trade deficits work meaning we have stupid people running it.

  • If he's old enough to make such a threat, he's old enough to be held accountable for it! The system must not be allowed to let another one of these people threatening violence slip through the cracks again.

  • Jews don't vote republican Mr Trump. Your own son in law was registered as a democrat. Jews know republicans are racists xenophobes white neo Nazis.

  • Bagrilla Jenkins says:

    And you manage to say absolutely nothing about Omar and Tlaib's trip to Israel being sponsored by Hamas supporters? You know, the terrorists.

  • Chris Kelleher says:

    Put the cell phones and gaming down. Time to read "The Diary of Ann Frank " in school. Maybe info from the Holocaust museum too.

  • PoodleDoodle Quilter says:

    I don't understand why sucking on a NASTY appeals to anyone self inflected but blame everyone else for your bad behavior

  • SO SHE OPENED THE DOIR POPPED IT IN THE BUTT AND IT RAN AWAY? WILD!!!!
    GREAT. NOW THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS THEYRE THERE ALONE.

  • While U.S Americans are risking their lives in foreign countries fighting terrorism so U.S citizens can live in peace, these little and not so little monsters are planning terrorists attacks against their own.
    makes you wonder who's the real enemy?

  • Eang Thai Ngov says:

    Hello there!
    Would the Nazi party be disappointed if Adolf Hitler is part Asian as a White Nazi party.!?
    Please do your research and stop being blissfully ignorant about TRUTH in Great Power.
    I believe that you Nazi party are intelligent,therefore,apply logic and TRUTH about colors in spectrum of a light prism.
    If you are colorblind,you see white and black.
    If you are white Nazi party who are colorblind,
    You don't know if your black.
    If you are white Nazi party and can see the rainbows,
    The rainbows are not only white in color.
    Please apply psychology and your advanced Nazi party intelligence without the blissful ignorance of the colors in a rainbow.
    ETN…
    Om Mani Pad Me Hung!

  • Bagrilla Jenkins says:

    Didn't see you do a story about the Islamic children in Philadelphia singing songs about beheading Christians either. Sounded rather terroristic to me.

  • Jesus Roadriguez says:

    Get ready for more threat and a possibility a another shoothing in school . This is going worst, pray to jesus christ

  • Eang Thai Ngov says:

    Hello there!
    Please educate all the people,
    I thought Jews are white people.
    The Jews versus the Germans and the Holocaust.
    This is the issues about whites against whites.
    Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible is involved.
    The Jews denied that Jesus Christ is the King of Jews, therefore, the Holocaust of Jews.
    ETN…
    Om Mani Pad Me Hung!

  • Once again i am proven correctly : Gun owners are the providers of guns in all mass killings.

    That stupid boy was going to use his father's weapon.

  • Lol my mom would not be aggressively opening topper ware plot twist the mom turns into a hungry hungry bear at night dun dun dunnnn

  • Bagrilla Jenkins says:

    Speaking of arresting someone for online threats, antifa says it's going to burn a theater full of people to the ground. You should mention that sometime. #minds irl

  • It's not just in the schools it's in the military . I've seen it you all don't know what goes on in the military . Suastika flags in barracks rooms I got out don't want to be part of it this was back in 1988-92 time I served , I bet it's even worst now . Good ole boy flags to .

  • Eang Thai Ngov says:

    Hello there!
    Call your bluff in the game of poker with the natural disasters and the destruction of the military bases worldwide.
    Earthquakes can damage your underground military bases, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes,tornadoes.
    Most coastal military bases will be damaged if there are Cat 4 Hurricanes offshore,
    Tornadoes can flip flops jets and airplanes!
    I call your bluff!
    Don't try to make money on profits by telling lies to the investors.
    ETN…

  • Beverley Hohn Chang says:

    SEND THE πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ POLICE TO FIGHT IRAN
    THEY'RE RACIST ANYWAYS
    PUT A CHOKE HOLD ON IRAN
    UNTIL THEY STOP BREATHING
    πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ ARE PAPER πŸ… πŸ… 🐡

  • Charlotte Iradjpanah says:

    People … Remember, two minutes of pleasure is not worth 18+ years of punishment. Children need molding!

    STOP school shootings … STOP chanting Nazism … STOP vaping.

    Raise your kids right with love, kindness, and respect, OR … STOP reproducing!

  • Glad to see the "white kids" being proud of who they are like many other races do. I just wish they did not feel it necessary to act likeΒ Hitler's boys. They may not understand the tragic history behind it. They need to be more original as to not offend people.

  • Charlotte Iradjpanah says:

    Watch … If something happens at that school, and parents cannot get a hold of their kids … It will be a MadHouse!

  • NO TO THE NIGHT KING 2020 says:

    Im not surprised by these kids doing this. What I would like to know is why? What is about this particular group of people thinking they are better and should rule everyone….Where does all that come from? Why only this group of people? Is there something wrong with the way they view the world or are they all psychopaths who have no regard for human life? When will racism become a Severe Mental Defect?

  • He is just a boy! Police are so lazy go after the real sickos this is ridiculous … Oh.. Florida all little boys are treat and police are all cowards!!

    Stop your kids and let then know, these, feelings, thoughts, emotions really does not come from any particular person but its like god/cosmos coming thru other people to warn us..
    We still have no way of knowing or predicting but we all do know now we are evolving. Getting, smarter, faster and stronger. For being good. However with great responsibilities comes great power and in that is the dicipline of brain management.

  • πŸ–• NBC you have been exposed as censoring Andrew Yang on numerous occasions. Well guess what a$$holes, he’ll be your next president

  • 2:05 if they was arresting a black kid for that. There would be stores burning and riots all over the city. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ The double standard NBC is absolutely unreal. And BTW. So much for freedom of speech. NBC has been removing my comments and at times blocking them all together for disagreements I have with the station. And for me pointing out all the double standards. Wornder if they will block this one as well? I'll be here every single night just to voice my opinion.
