Inside a Black Hole
Don't let the name fool you: a black hole is anything but empty space. Black holes are some of the most extreme, bizarre and fascinating objects in the universe. Regina Caputo and Jeremy Schnittman describe what it might be like to go hunting for one.
oh, yeah, Trump said in his speech, 'now we go to the Capitol' then it surely is a left conspiracy 🤣🤣🤣 USA is unique in so many ways, but the worst unique qualification comes now from being the only First World country whose own President sent domestic terrorists to attack the Capitol during the election results confirmation, in order to make him the first Dictator Made in USA.
JudiciaryDems why isn't the fbi investigating why the guard was not sent in when requested? are they not looking at the planning from the behind the scenes plotters? MaddowBlog maddow Repugnuts don’t need or want evidence !!!! meanwhile, ron johnson was spotted.... Well I'm sure that'll put it to rest for the Q crew
Independent panel of experts support claim that Joe Biden is a racistrapist as alleged by Kamala Harris and others: In my eyes, what occurred on our Capital January 6th was DOMESTIC TERRORISM! Imagine being questioned by Tedcruz, or HawleyMO & not just saying.. incitement.. yea, we are Looking into your roles. No it was not a leftist coup, it was trump supporters & white supremacists acting out domestic terrorism in support of an insurrection you helped instantiate.
Congress puts the FBI in a, damn if you do damn if you don't situations. Watching MikeLeeforUtah tedcruz HawleyMO questioning about the evidence the FBI TheJusticeDept has or using is ASININE! It's obvious they are fishing for the evidence that will be used against them! THEY SHOULD NOT BE PARTICIPATING IN ANY INVESTIGATIONS REGARDING JAN 6, 2021
Another unsatisfying hearing. What's the point? An FBI agent, he has all the tools and resources and still can't find any evidence and still made the claim that's not professional smh in before the 'But John Sullivan' idiots come in with their propoganda. Dude literally said 'I’m not saying I’m Antifa, by any means.'
Who is that man? Hawley sure is curious about what the FBI knows about all the collected data from January 6th. The issue is he was asleep at the switch. Oh and about the lootings - arson and killings this summer - DavidDorn Are we going to be talking about this staged event for the next 4 years? Does it ever stop?
Unfuckingbelievable GOPCorruptionOverCountry Whoa whoa whoa, are you telling me Trumpers lied?! 😂
