I have a code that pulls a JSON response, and I need to compare times from now() and a previous when the timestamp was created. I am able to pull the info and have it display.

when i try and get the comparison to work it just sits there and doesnt display anything.

Here is my code

    "use strict";
        var endDate = new Date();

        var startDate = new Date();
        startDate.setHours(- 12);

     api.call("Get", {
                "typeName": "DutyStatusLog",
                "search": {
               "fromDate" : startDate,
               "ToDate" : endDate,
               "statuses" :['ON']

              }, function(results){
                 for(var i=0; i<results.length; i++){
                   var stTime = results[i].dateTime;
                   var status = results[i].status;
                   var driver = results[i].driver.id;
                   console.log("Driver "+ driver +" at time: ",stTime + " And Has The Status Of " + status);
                   var newDate = new Date();

                   if((stTime - newDate ) > 6){
                       console.log("Answers: ",answerThis);
