  1. What Changes if Dems Win?
    We get to be ruled by Warren Buffet, George Sorros, and friends who own the DNC instead of David Koch, Robert Mercer, and friends who own the RNC

  2. GET ON THE POD, STEPHEN!! YOU CAN LET LOOSE-More than CBS will let you…and they're pretty damn lenient, it seems! You can articulate what you're thinking better than you can on the show, because you're not having to deal with the constraints of scripts, performing for a ratings based audience, and strict production timings; no writing and editing-it would just be you as you! I would LOVE to see Stephen playing "Ok, Stop" and other games for realsies! GET STEPHEN ON A POD, GUYS!

  3. I think we need a third isle. Two party system is too polarizing. So far we have had a choice of two bad options on the ballot.We need a party of moderates, centrists. I'd feel better choosing a lesser evil if there were three viable parties instead of only two.

  4. These guys blew a chance to highlight exactly what Mitch McConnell and the Reeps are saying they will do if they win the mid-terms.

    1) cut Medicare
    2) privatize or cut Social Security
    3) terminate ACA and protections for preexisting illnesses.
    4) another round of tax cuts for the rich.
    5) cuts to public education funding

    Rather than yuck it up, highlight policies that will change be cut and how they will impact average citizens lives.

  5. Damn all those white nationalist finns in white Finland.
    Damn all those white nationalist icelanders in white Iceland.
    And damn all those white nationalist irish in white Ireland, they are the worst, much worse that the white internationalist brits in Northern Ireland.

  6. It's ironic, during the Obama years when both houses were Democratic they weren't complaining about checks and balances. The Democrats changed congressional rules against filibustering and pushed through Obamacare, does that sound like checks and balances?

  7. Patriotism is wanting your country to do well.

    Nationalism is denying your country can do wrong.

    Patriotism springs from both;

    Pride in collective past achievements.

    As well as caring about our fellow citizens future well being.

    This instils a civic duty, to see one's country become the very best that it can.

    Demanding we both proudly celebrate its strengths and proudly criticize its faults.

    Nationalism stems from either;

    Deep insecurity in one's own worth fueling a need to experience worth, power and success vicariously as part of a nation, thus denying any faults in the actions of the nation, not to spare the nation, but to spare oneself's already fragile ego, further shame.

    This applies to other unhealthy group identification whether based on race, gender, religion etc.

    Example:
    "I've never had a girlfriend but I can ignore that failure and pretend I invented the lightbulb, if I identify less with myself and more with being white"

    Alternatively Nationalism stems from a sociopathic disregard for non-citizens, allowing policy that disregards them whether actually beneficial or politically popular. Unsurprisingly this disregard most often occurs in people who'd treat anyone, including their fellow citizens with the same disregard if they could.

    Ironically meaning that the typical Nationalist leader is entirely opposed to the interests of their nation and will only act in its benefit if when it coincides with their own interests.

    Unrelated…

    Globalism describes the existance of global networks of markets and commerce, and more recently also denotes the international agreements, rules and regulatory bodies that govern them.

    It does not describe the idea of considering people outside your borders human.

    Which in turn is not in opposition to being patriotic, putting country first or acting with rational self interest.

    Globalism describes global trade, commerce, communication and its regulation.

    Unless you want no trade and commerce shared between nations, then there has to be rules and sanctions shared between the nations as well…

    Unless you really trust global corporations and banks that is…

    Remember this, because ""anti-globalization"" politicians like
    Farage (Stockbroker), Bannon (Banker) and Trump (heir and shareholder) all seem to be opposed to only one half of globalism:

    The international agreements and institutions that govern corporations, banks and finance and punish them for wrongdoing.

    The other half of globalism; the actions of banks and corporations is remmarked upon inconsistently by those guys, critical of one day and defending them from "socialism" the next.

    But their decisions are nothing but consistent.

    They support removing and hampering the global cops controlled (though in unison) by nations.

    And leaving nationally unaffiliated global-corporations completely free reign.

    Nationalists are awful but Trump isn't even that, most of these guys aren't. Painting him as one might even seem favourable to him than the alternative.

    Corpora-tocracy.

    Donald is a narcisist who by virtue of being born wealthy, has Corporatocracy for an ideology. As far as one can say he has ideology.

    Corpora-tocracy.
    Not to be confused with corpora-tism and corpora-tists.

    Corporatocrat needs a catchier name. Plutocrat, oligarch, anarcho-capitalist don't cover how much these guys benefit from their base becoming even worse off.

    Corporation-ist?
    Corpo-crat?
    Rat?

  8. #richwhitemaleplaining | Anyone with a 4th grade (or less) education knows that Donald Trump didn't write his speech.

  9. Just a numbers recap:

    Presidential 2016: 55.7%
    Federal Senate 2016: 55.7%
    Federal Representative 2016: 55.7%
    Gubernatorial 2016: 55.7%
    State Senate 2016: 55.7%
    State Representative 2016: 55.7%
    Plethora of State Offices and Local Offices: 55.7%

    Last "Mid-term":

    Federal Senate 2014: 36.4%
    Federal Representative 2014: 36.4%
    Governor 2014: 36.4%
    State Senate 2014: 36.4%
    State Representative 2014: 36.4%
    Plethora of State Offices and Local Offices: 36.4%

    "On the heels of a drop in voter turnout in the 2012 presidential election, turnout in the 2014 midterm was the lowest since World War II. Just under 37% of eligible voters cast ballots, down five points from the 42% of eligible voters who voted in 2010. However, turnout among states varied widely."

    Let's see if we can improve shall we.

    And GO INDEPENDENTS – Vermont & Maine.

  10. "Nationalism" is one of the major causes of WWI. If you think WWI is worth repeating, you should continue to embrace Trump and prepare yourself for "Mustard Gas." Mustard gas is one of the most toxic substances on earth. Put simply, Trump is to the world what mustard gas is to life.

  11. I love Cobert he helps to keep me sane and able to stomach small doses of Donald Trump insanity. It makes my skin crawl to watch the president do his thing unfiltered but with Cobert's help I can see with my own eyes without losing my mind. I find it amazing to see first hand the Troll farmers at work on the blog. Same thing happening on the Maddow site. You can see the exact same "talking points" on them and know them by their messages.

  12. Absolutely LOVE these guys. It's wonderful to see young educated people like this who are so motivated and passionate, share their knowledge and understanding about what's happening in their country in a very honest way. They have great insight and understanding into the political arena and the ability to explain things in a relatable and often comical way which hopefully has inspired many people who aren't typically interested in politics and motivated them too. This is what will save America and make it great again!!! VOTE!!!

  13. Dems never gonna win. His followers are highly organised and determined. Dems dream. It will be the same realisation hitting you as when HRC lost. This is your country. Go back to sleep.

  14. LOL he specifically used that word so that you guys would flip out and then cover him at a rally talking about putting america first. you fools have learned nothing. impossibly dumb. Thank you for highlighting a speech conflating and possibly swaying a few more of your rational followers to trump.

  15. When is CBS going to stop with this childish censorship crap? I want to hear what these guys have to say, including the F-word, the C-word, the N-word, and every other word they choose.

  16. you can tell Colbert is getting slightly annoyed by Lovett talking over everyone and trying to steal the show. On late night talk shows the host is supposed to be the funny one but Lovett is the star in his own mind. LET TOMMY TALK. Also WHERE'S DAN?

  17. #CadetBoneSpurs still hangs out with Bannon.

    Bannon's just been on his European 'brown shirt' Tour.
    He went and cosied up with every white nationalist, fascist, nazi he could find.
    #CadetBoneSpurs is ignorant on many levels; but that prick KNEW what he was doing.

  18. Nationalism isn't different much from racism or religious discrimination… Thinking one's country is superior or one's countrymen's lives have more priority than other countries' is just your basic discrimination… It's basically hating & only dictators have preferred this ideology in history. Patriotism & globalism tells you that every life matters & everyone is equal which is what we need.. Discrimination of any type just brings war – Be it borders, race, religion & language etc. We're all humans at top of all – & everyone should be able to see that…

  19. These guys sound very rational, intelligent , funny and knowledgeable. Wish everyone was as educated as them, or at least acquire enough knowledge before voting

  20. "OK Stop" should be the ONLY way the news media covers politics news nowadays, so that every time when the politicians lie about something, it's challenged right away. If groundless allegations just get away without challenges, then the news media becomes a platform spreading lies. I would LOVE to watch the last presidential debate and interview with kellyanne conway with "OK Stop".

  21. Love the show. I have been listening to these guys over the past year or two and seeing them in person has completely destroyed my mental image of them. I mean I knew it was three white guys but everything has changed.. #nevermeetyourheroes.

  22. The DemocRats will not win… KEK has ordained this… and the future is assured. PRAISE KEK ! HEIL TRUMP ! CRUSH THE LEFT !

  23. What Americans fail to come to terms with is the fact that it matters not one whit which party is in power, their entire political system is corrupt and rotten. Most politicians in the US are in the pockets of corporate and big money donors That is a fact. A well documented fact. We know just how much money is donated. American politicians are in it for the money more than most other countries politicians.
    Look at the sheer stupidity of the crap the US is in: Trump was elected because the Democrats abandoned the working class and were corrupt. The Republicans, equally corrupt and with zero interest in the welfare of the working class embraced Trump when they figured he could win.
    Today Americans are squealing to vote Democrat because Trump is a fecking disaster.
    Too late, there's no way back. the USA is headed into fascism.

  24. The problem with today's Democrats is they have no soul, boss-ridden & privilege-controlled, neither daring to speak out wisely vital issues that matter most to Americans. They have nothing to offer and a failed record to run on, the best they can do is spread lies, encourage protests, rioting, and use smear tactics on their Republican opponents.

  25. That’s only scratching the surface of what will happen if Dems take the House. Subpoena power will mean we can find out so much of what Trump is deathly afraid of being revealed.

  26. They are weak. Liberalism arises from weakness and delusion. Liberalism is perpetrated, promulgated and perpetuated by the weak and delusional. Liberalism is weakness that ultimately leads to RUIN.

  27. Trump KKK coming out of the closet!!! Maybe trump's gay too … ? So many skeletons pouring out of his closet!!! Lol

  28. I watched this ONLY because I thought POD was going to be interviewed. The band POD. WHO TF is this? A group of three dudes named POD? FY, you ain't POD.

  29. I used to be this retarded… Damn. Fellow conservatives, imagine being so dumb, people have to tell you what you think of certain people and how you must redefine words…. R.I.P.

  30. I'm SOOOO glad I'm a republican…..It doesn't take a smart person to understand that "brainwashed left" think that the whole world is falling apart because of Trump….Well I got news for you….The "right" dealt with 8 years of the failings of a President and of the ALMOST downfall of our great democracy….It's ok though because of this writing AG Burr and his team with the IG report will find all they need to bring down a lot of VIP's…..and this might go all the way to the "destroyer" in chief Obooma ….
