  1. Reportedly, Stewart will explore topics such as:

    • How large centralized governments are inefficient money-wasters vs. local governments that are closer to the people

    • How the Founding Fathers intended government to be small and made up of citizen servants, not career politicians

    • How the U.S. plans to pay back $30 trillion dollars in debt (multi-part mini series)

    • How Mark Zuckerberg bought the 2020 U.S. Presidential election using the money he generated from hapless saps who are addicted to electronic validation of their empty, meaningless, narcissistic lives

    • How guns don’t kill people, crazy/evil people kill people

    • How well the southern U.S. border wall worked and why it needs to be completed

    • How the U.S. media finally burned the veiled myth of objective journalism and became avowed leftist activists

    • How 62,502,904 abortions and counting have rotted and continue to eat away at what’s left of America’s festering soul

    And much, much more!

    Just kidding. It will be the same old same old leftist dreck that’s brought us to this dreadful period in history.

  2. Also to be explored…

    How the American people, including 87% of black people ,voted for a President:

    Who in no uncertain terms told them that they are mindless drones with no critical thinking abilities whatsoever, and that just by displaying a modicum of individuality they were proving they weren’t black.


    Who’s greatest claim to fame in race relations in 47 years was his deep friendship with notable Dixiecrat KKK politicians and congresspeople.
    Who’s most recent track record with black people and civil rights included insinuating that bussing blacks to white schools would turn those schools into “jungle schools.”
    Who suggested that “you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.”


    Who told a group of black “leaders” on a conference call shortly after his election win that he literally wasn’t going to do anything for them and that they should take their issues to Hispanic Americans because that’s where the future is. 

“…By 2040, this country is going to be minority white, European,”You hear me? Minority white European. White folks don’t like hearing that. You guys are going to have to start working more with Hispanics, who make up a larger portion of the population than y’all do!”
    Who has created a worse border crisis than during the Trump era twice… once during the Obama Administration and now his own. During the Trump era he went on about kids in cages, now he has floors full of people to be in what look like body bags.


    Who had nothing but criticism for the Trump Wall, swore he would not spend another dime on the wall, and now his administration is talking about FINISHING THE WALL.

8. Who immediately started rekindling the “forever wars” in the Middle East with airstrikes in sharp contrast to the Trump doctrine that was nominated for Nobel Peace Prizes 4 times…


      1. It involves critical thinking to see they DON’T have a point. All they have done is name calling and declaring things true that clearly aren’t. If you want to see logic and facts leading to a conclusion, check out Jon Stewart.

        1. Seriously? I watched Stewart years ago and even enjoyed him sometimes.

          He’s very good at slanting an issue using half facts and humor. He would never be able to outdo a Conservative humorist like Mark Steyn or Dennis Miller mainly because he doesn’t have the depth of facts.

          Funny? Yes.
          But the nation’s issues need more than humor to fix, unless you like laughing at the border crisis, the China dominance Syndrome, or the Middle East realities.

          Feeling don’t fix these problems. Wisdom and honesty do.
