  1. I like how if you say Russia interfered with our election, youre totally fine but if you say our own government did you're labeled a right-wing, extremist/threat to democracy.

  2. I already watched your full length coup video but this short reminded me of how my Communist government (in Vietnam) downplayed actual protests in recent years by saying they are incited by foreign American agents. We had very good reasons to be protesting, and pretty much disregarded what the government was trying to say. But now I see why they would have some basis in saying domestic protests may be caused by foreign influence, especially from the US.

  3. Hi Johnny. Here again, writing to ask you to make a video or video apology about the Established Titles scam and how you promoted it months ago. (Not knowing it’s a scam I’m sure) You owe that much to your audience. If this is deleted I’ll just keep posting it until you answer, cheers!

  4. Yup and in this Case America is Bully. It's disgusting that we have our "Freedom" by stepping on others. We take from others so Eric and Erica can fill their bellies and sleep at night.

    The countless countries in ruins because if us.

  5. johnny is one of the only americans i have any respect for, seriously doing gods work shedding some light on these situations in which most people have no idea about.

  6. Omg dude, Every time you learn something the rest of us learned in grade school, you act like it’s such a revelation. Then you take 40 minutes to walk us through a 1 minute Google search. I’m soooooo over it!
