    Jon Stewart is the kind of American I respect. If more Americans were like him, I suspect I wouldn't have as much distrust for America as I do

    He has every right to be angry, only a leftist wouldn't be, they'd fake victimhood. All while Cortez, the dumb bitch, wants a raise for sitting on her ass and tweeting all day long.

    Fuck Congress. I'm now an Independent voter. Both parties are full of shit and lie to our faces only to get a vote.

    I never realized just how great Jon was when it comes to activism. He cares, and he wants the people who risked their lives to save whoever they could to be taken care of.

    In China, the government always take in charge, but no one can criticize.
    In US, anyone can criticize the government, but no one would be responsible.
    Both imperfect systems.

    Do you know why his lines are so quotable? Because no one else says these things. No one. This has been the case with many of Jon's words. He lends his articulation to the poor, the unrecognized, the beaten down. The victims of the world... and especially the victims of America.

    I'm happy he's focused on something not only important, but completely non-arguable. Yet, here he is having to, in fact, argue the importance of these people; the same people mentioned by at least one million individuals on Twitter or any social media over the years. These people who, then, and now, have remained absolutely unseen. Today, we witness their faceless identities, as considered by our politicians. The disposable usefulness of these men and women, as told by each and every one of those empty chairs of Congress.

    Tittle does not represent the real message of this video. Shame on CNN for masking this as another viral clip with such a unmeaningful and misleading title.

    Who could possibly ‘dislike’ this video. These are true American heroes...this has nothing to do with politics. This has to do with people that ran toward the buildings as they were crashing to the ground. God bless these people and their families.

    Just like with veterans and refugees, people are quick to use them to justify any immorality but have no morality of their own in actually helping people. Why is there even a single veteran that's homeless, hungry or not getting the medical help he or she needs? Why is there a single refugee who has to be terrified of going back to deplorable conditions where they most likely will meet certain death? This is "supposed" to be the most powerful and righteous nation in the world or so it advertises every chance it get's, and why can't we help all those in need who are suffering? Because we chose not to, because it's easier and more beneficial to just do whatever it takes for more money and power trampling any in your way, crushing all beneath you, listing any who cry out for justice as crazy or some other derogatory remark. It's sicking.

    It's funny. I just finished watching Chernobyl and it was horrific and the Soviets sure screwed it the hell up, but the coal miners, the divers, the graphite removal team, they weren't lied to, and they got healthcare immediately and without cost. I'm looking forward to the HBO mini series on responding to 9/11 that ends in this speech.

    Most of them probably weren't even listening... they were probably just waiting for him to finish so they could countinue the motion on the floor at a later date when there are enough chair members present to vote in a closed session...

    Never Forget...
    unless you're in Congress...
    then at least try to remember to never forget about it entirely...

    i mean... i know that the migrant refugees and the dreamers' rights are virtually neck and neck with the first responders health and lives... i mean duh...
    a baby would know that those two issues are virtually indistinguishable in the context of priority and congressional duties...

    Ladies and Gentlemen, here are the committee members who were absent: The subcommittee has 14 members.

    The subcommittee members who were MIA when Stewart and Alvarez spoke include Democratic Reps. Eric Swalwell of California, Madeleine Dean of Pennyslvania, and Sylvia Garcia, Veronica Escobar and Sheila Jackson, all of Texas. Swalwell is running for president.

    The Republican members who were missing during their testimony were Louie Gohmert of Texas, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Guy Reschenthaler of Pennsylvania, Ben Cline of Virginia and Kelly Armstrong of North Dakota.

    Little jon is up there swinging away at an enemy that doesn't exist. Bipartisan support from the get go. What cynical theatrics. Then he goes on the talk shows to shower more lies about mean old Republicans. And I thought little jon had retired from the fake news business.
