Written by The Jimmy Dore Show

THE JIMMY DORE SHOW is a comedy lifeline for people on the left and right (but definitely NOT the center) who are sick of bought politicians and gaslighting corporate journalists manufacturing consent for wars.


  1. I didn't vote in 2016: it was the first time that I didn't vote. This time I did vote (for Hawkins) though I'm not sure why because the election had already been fixed for Biden instead of Bernie so it's not legitimate anyway. It's almost funny that the DNC insists it's so urgent that people vote to save democracy from Trump when they are responsible for Trump and they cheated us twice. It's just one shitty RD party working against us. And frankly until the few progs in con-gress leave the RD party and join the greens they'll just be enabling the neolibs/neocons.
    (Why doesn't anyone talk about neocons any more, just neolibs? I'm confused about that and what the difference is between them.)

  2. So the majority are the smart ones that choose to stay out of the fuckery. The other half are divided and fuck over the true majority. Why should I be bothered with what idiots choose. If you choose to be ruled and I don't why do I still have to deal with it.

  3. I live in the rural area where the "deplorables" dwell. Trump-Pence signs are everywhere. Why? Because as you rightly point out, he has led a populist uprising that is important to them. They are not backing off, because they are tired of elitists treating them like shit. I am 69, and it's the closest thing to a genuine revolt I have ever seen.

  4. Oh damnit Jimmy you're gonna make me cry with that Bernie rally footage. I thought he was for real and he had a chance. Until covid and Bernie quitting, because until covid/Bernie quitting I thought if Bernie didn't get the nomination a ton of people would be in Milwaukee and make it happen.

  5. "Irrelevant" would be the word I'd choose. Politicians don't serve the people they serve their rich donors, the militery industrial complex, the usual deep state suspects. The election is a fraud from the get go. I'm amazed that anyone, apart from the aforementioned establishment unspeakables, turn up to cast their votes for the next mass slaughtering carpet bomber in chief.

  6. Wonder what would happen [impossible I know] if all Americans had to follow our system down under where we HAVE to vote, unless we have a valid excuse, interesting to think about.

  7. "Why do young voters like Bernie" askes Jimmy. Beats me. Did the same young people like their parents when they promised them a puppy and then came up empty handed, saying they've just nominated a new step father because the wife told them to with menaces.
    Must be breeding some pretty gullible young people in America these days, some even put life and limb on the line… to line oil billionaire pockets.

  8. If Biden's so backwards, then why is he ~10 points ahead of Trump in every poll? Trump may have big rallies, but so did Romney. Rallies alone don't win elections.

  9. I can tell you I'm not standing in line for hours for either of those two idiots. I would have for Tulsi Gabbard, but democrats just insisted on Biden.

  10. and what is so ironic is that you want more government and the people to not have the ability to vote at all it's called communism yeah totalitarianism yeah!!!!! Bernie Sanders and free stuff free free free!!!!!

  11. I love how after Trumps stimulus cancelation blunder, he tweets he'll 'sign checks immediately!!' And we go back to radio silence.. i swear the media is just as complicit in this as the Corporate politicians.

    If they dont want people to discuss it, they just ingore it till it goes away

  12. Hey Jimmy. Love ya buddy. Since we know popular vote isn't whats gonna get Trump or Biden the job… can you research the names of the 538 electors for 2020 and how they're pledged so we can know who's gonna win already. I'm a decent internet sleuth but I'm having a tough time finding them.

  13. Let’s start advancing the Green Party and get 92 million votes. All of those fears you listed go away with a big enough win. 92 million Green Party votes neutralizes the electoral college and all doubt.

  14. Will you fight for M4A? Biden: No Will you fight for a living wage? Biden: No Will you protect asylum seekers? Biden: Go vote for the other guy LMAO.. can' make this shit up!!!
