  1. Not just hatred for president but fear of what he will expose all of the crimes they have committed.

  2. He's exposing thier corruption. He's disrupting thier money flow. Washington is corrupt, let's face it. This goes for both sides. Nobody on these a little higher than average salaries can afford these extravagant homes and lifestyles, unless their crooked. THINK ABOUT IT. this includes media, Hollywood. we are such suckers as a people on the working level.

  3. Last week 28 blocked calls.

  4. The emotional intelligence of the average liberal is very low. Their lack of control of their emotions influencing all thought processes, reactions and decision making is compromised by how illogical and how irrational they are. Of course they don't see this because their analytical capacity is reduced by a low level of emotional intelligence and conversely pitifully low cognative functions. All responses are in the first instance emotional for them, then later in hind sight possible more critical, but coupled with the realization they have made a fool of themselves. No back peddling on outlandish or unseemly comments made or reactions witnessed occurs though. This is why the term flaky, emerged, because it describes the inconsistency of liberal responses to fairly normal situations. This type of emotional response, coupled with large but delicate egos, an inability for self reflection and little or no objectivity, leads to self deciet, and the misrepresentation of facts or evidence to their audience. It results in lies and therefore corrupt activity that is compounded by their dishonesty, and inability to understand and play by the rules, such as the rule of law, and the function of departments such as the DOJ. They are in many instances unfit psychologically for serving in congress, or in the case of the average liberal joe on the street, being charge of any organisation or operation that requires integrity.

  5. I’m being swamped with robo calls!

  6. 4.62B robocalls a month in a country of 330M isn't just a little scam, but a targeted attack and a sign we are in free fall! This is why these monsters think they can take advantage — nobody ever stops them! Why isn't government protecting its citizens? I've said it before and I'll say it again: why do the Intelligence Agencies not find these cyberterrorists sending these calls over in their home countries, kick their doors down, haul them off to a black site, —–comment edited for decency—–, and send them back home as a shell of their former selves to send a message to other foreign nationals that this is what happens to you when you attack American Citizens! Common Americans should not have to face the threat of identity theft alone when we have a government. Is the government not there to protect its citizens?

  7. I get 4 a day at least. I only call 2 people!

  8. I get 15-30 a day,I block everyone of them….but they just keep coming.

  9. Can you imagine what the Bernie Socialism would be like ???

  10. Robocallers should get the maximum penalty ,they rob all of us

  11. Republican or Democrat, I would vote for him if for no other reason he signed the anti-robo call into law!

    KAG 2020!

  13. OMG! This is the best news today. I recently got a robocall Sunday evening.

  14. Get them every day they are using other peoples numbers now

  15. 5 a day! Applied for my SS and BOOM! Thanks for sharing my phone number. Scam Likely can beat any Democrat!

  16. This law will not work just like the "do not call" registry. Its all smoke and guns with these politicians who are in the hands of big business. What I found out with the "do not call" registry: 1) there is no oversight to ensure the service is properly supported, 2) it basically was not staffed to maintain and support the users and program, 3) there's no teeth to discourage the robo call business, 4) there was no cooperation from the international community to help control this. Why is this important? Because many of not most of these calls come from countries that have no agreement with the USA to control this abuse. To tackle this in my opinion: 1) enough budget must be set aside to hire the proper staffing to implement, manage, and support users and services, 2) ensure the federal, state, and local law enforcement are tied in so that quick action can be taken if needed, 3) ensure stiff fines per incident hurts them. If fines don't do it, law enforcement should have laws on the book to enable them to arrest people who violate the law, 4) there should be an intake process that are supported by the staffing mentioned earlier. A triage based on defined criteria to streamline the process based on X, Y, and Z. Until they do something similar, this is nothing but a shell game that the robo industry will laugh at and ignore just like they did to the "Do Not Call" registry service.

  17. I just read the bill $10,000 fine per robo call penalty and the still did over 4 billion last month…. slap them in the teeth and take the money from the fines asap right out the gate squash em

  18. I thought the law doesn't take effect until January 2021.

  19. I would suggest deleting ASAP including voicemail, and blocking.

  20. Why? Why?

    They are criminals.

    They need to avoid prosecution.

    Money-laundering U.S. humanitarian aid and U.S. military aid is in the $Billions.

    ..and $Trillions are unaccounted for.

    The Biden video is three major federal felony crimes.

    How many have cashed-in?

    It is Democrat Party leadership, and some RINO’s including Mitt Romney.

    Schiff-Pelosi participated in Ukraine corruption-crime.

    Schiff has Burisma “donations” for his promise to impeach Trump election campaign.

    This isn’t TDS Trump Derangement Syndrome.

    It isn’t politics. It is crime.

    The entire Democrat Party leadership participated, all of it.

    Look at Glen Beck’s “white board” series, and he doesn’t have it all.

    Democrats are desperate to keep their “career professional” bureaucrats and the politicians they “own” in government office.
