  1. unrelated but … October 1st tariffs relates to China… and SCOTUS JUST ALLOWED NATIONWIDE ENFORCEMENT OF THIRD-COUNTRY ASYLUM RULE. POUST tweets: "BIG United States Supreme Court WIN for the Border on Asylum!" More winning 🙂

  2. God Bless the USA 🙏🏼🇺🇸🙏🏼🇺🇸
    God Bless our amazing POTUS who is giving us Truth!
    And especially Bless all the families who lost loved ones 18 years ago! 🙏🏼❤️🙏🏼❤️🙏🏼

  3. Morally corrupt greedy billionaires run and control America.
    Eat the rich. Not really, of course, that would be some very unhealthy meat.

  4. Sackler should visit all the 'victims' and offer them a handful of Oxy's if they agree to sign a contract
    promising not to sue in the future.

  5. Everyone agrees that the family that took everything from some families , should be forced to leave everything on the table on their way out of corporate existence.

  6. Uhm…if the Sackler family truly felt bad…they would convert the trust to a NON-PROFIT. Tens of thousands people died.

  7. I'm against this action against Purdue Pharma. The only people that want to sue this company are lawyers & people hoping for a landslide of money from the deaths people not responsible enough to take meds properly or people that have never had to endure severe chronic pain. Courts should hold people accountable for their own actions because Purdue did not stuff the pills down these people's throats, they chose to take the pills that had warnings attached. Taking away potent pain meds from people that need them will only increase suicide rates & deaths from illegal heroin use.

  8. 💊There wasn't a crack crisis in the black community and there was a alcoholic crisis in the native community it's called personal responsibility

  9. Corporate drug dealing kills people, Joe Citizen smoked some marijuana, Joe Citizen goes to prison while the corporate drug dealers make billions in profits, typical of America.

  10. And are the doctors who prescribed these pills, free from any liability, or are they just going after the ones with the deepest pockets?

  11. I know a guy who sold a joint in Pennsylvania, he got a year in prison. The Sackler family has killed thousands of people and you decided that money was justice…..not in my moral bag. strip them of their ill gotten gains, place them, gently, in a dark, grey prison and feed them oxycodone for…… ever and ever….JUSTICE!

  12. Here's the story of a lovely lady
    Who was bringing up three very lovely girls
    All of them had hair of gold, like their mother.
    The youngest one in curls.

    Here's the story of a man named Brady
    Who was busy with three boys of his own.
    They were four men living all together
    Yet they were all alone

    Till the one day when the lady met this fellow.
    And they knew that it was much more than a hunch,
    That this group must somehow form a family,
    That's the way we all became the Brady bunch.

    The Brady bunch, the Brady bunch.

  13. What do you mean lawsuit??? Is there really not enough evidence to bring criminal charges? Is this just another example of money being above the law? Is America great again?

  14. I find it amazing how all these companies were doing this under the Obama administration and the government didn’t lift a single finger.
    Now trumps administration is holding their feet to the fire and democrats still can’t give this administration any credit.

  15. Me and the C.O of the suicide missionary man spreading position. do not always get along. He's got all the hot shot bad puppy chew toys dough. Yes mindfreak mind war to us Alan Ginsberg lizard brain mind freaks are like bad puppy chew toys yes chewing on their tiny little overly excited lizard brains. Messing with all the cult controls to see what chicken head fed happens.

  16. Yes the DNC's passionate love of dead Hillary hillbilly's. According to Hillary the only good Hillbilly is a dead hillbilly, they smell like Russians yes.

  17. This is exactly why we need medical for all. This bull has to stop.
    We need oversight for healthcare.
    Bernie Sanders 2020

    Dont listen to stephanie, she is STRONGLY against Bernie.

  18. I have severe back pain and I just want my oxys back! So i can work again and even go grocery shopping! Idgaf how many junkies die for some of us that used it properly it changed our world. Over 5 yrs on it and 2 mos after its stopped i lose my job ,car, and apartment. I now live with my mom on 975$ ssi wtf !

  19. If you’re a democrat and you come home one night to find your wife naked and the window open and you look through the window to see the galloping silhouette of a MAGA hat wearing champion…

    You’re the BETO.

    Trump 2020 🇺🇸

  20. Accountability, personal responsibility isn't this what Conservative America always say to the lower class and poor. First of all let all the States get together and sue this family for every Dollar they own. Your houses, now it's the States. Your boats, now they're ours. Everything they own. Even the Collage funds. And then prosecute everyone of them involved in the drug cartel because that's what they are..

  21. the Sacklers profited from the misery they peddled. they should lose every penny they got from selling legalized heroin. proud to have Josh Shapiro as my State A.G.!

  22. The Sackler family is part of the same jewish mafia in control of our whole banking system. Send them to a gulag and feed them rat turds the rest of their lives.

  23. They should be given the death penalty. That's what they did to others- people who took their evil drugs were given a death sentence.

  24. Did Purdue Pharma force the people to take the drugs? No. Nobody wants to admit that the true problem is the Privatised health service. While profit is king these types of "scandals" will keep on happening.

  25. Say I take fentanyl that came from Purdue Pharma to get high, are Purdue Pharma responsible? What about, I'm in pain and run of the mill painkillers aren't working, so my local Medical provider prescribes me Oxycontin, are Purdue Pharma responsible?

  26. The other half of the problem never talked about is that those who suffer from chronic pain are being adversely affected by this!

  27. Fraud, negligent homicide, drug possession with intent to distribute. Misleading the public. Gee I can think of a few penalties they would face in a fair justice system.

  28. They purposefully pushed their opioids in the '90s and '00s to profit and we still call them "The Stakler Family" and not the Stakler gang. These are the real scary people of the world. Power and greed that cause hardship on the poor while making them rich.

  29. Our attorney general in British Columbia is going after the company and the Sackler family too. They've done considerable damage around the world. They need to be accountable to victims everywhere.
