  1. Amen! The intelligence community and diplomats will not say it but the United States is in bad shape domestically and foreign and its getting worse by the day with this President.

  2. We can’t rely on a “good guy with a gun” and we can’t rely on federal employees to plug a sinking ship.

      If more people don’t WAKE UP and understand that the Bush’s, Clinton’s, and Obama’s were not supporters of the United States. They are all part of bringing us to The New World Order. JFK was assassinated for trying to get information about the secret societies out. George H Bush was behind it. Why do you think JFK Jr titled his magazine GEORGE? I always thought that was odd. Bush’s were behind 9/11. It is hard to wrap your head around all the cover ups that have gone on for decades. Ignorant people are going to say these are conspiracy theories. Go do your own research. Skull and Bones, Free Masons, Illuminati, Bohemian Grove.

      Don donny here in California we have to take classes in order to apply for ccw..they teach us not to be a Ricky rescue in the case of an active shooter, but use our weapon in a last resort type manner where our life is in direct threat..so basically if we are cornered…it’s common sense anybody who carries should not actively look for the shooter in a active shooter scenario!

      jb pb exactly and “gun buy back programs” infringing on 2nd amendment, and has anyone ever noticed that these mass shootings always seem to happen or get covered by MSM around election time? There is absolutely 100% an agenda by the government to get guns out of the hands of citizens, this is all collaborated with the corporate owned media that has ties to the government…if people think background checks will help they are wrong!! Background checks will take guns away from veterans that where dishonorably discharged, people with unpaid traffic tickets, the list goes on, and if you havnt researched what a background check will do to your rights as a gun owner then your drinking the cool aid the government is giving to brainwash everyone

    • @Lindsey Stein True. And most people think they are good guys.

    It is ALL about MONEY and POWER and dare anyone who stands in the way!! That sums up what Politics is ALL about!!

      If politics is all about money and power, the media is the entity that decides who gets both.

    • @Tamra Dwiggins No its just you and your family and friends who cant figure out how to vote because the internet has confused you.

      @MrLoobu Yeah—that’s probably it. How did you figure out the right way to vote? Superior intellect? Superior education? Please share your gift.

    • Don’t waste your breath, blueeyessiamese. No point in explaining anything to them. They are beyond reason, beyond hope….. I agree with your assessment. I hope he runs for office!

    “Naked, unapologetic cruelty” + “sheer managerial incompetence”… sounds about right.

  9. Chuck Park is a decent man and true American who left this digusting club of right-wing racist republitard radical christfreaks.

    The world is watching America and it ain’t looking good😓

  11. Well informed

    Much respect to his decision and his honesty

    • The watch-word of public service is “Fearless advice, and loyal implementation”. One may not agree with one’s political masters, and have a fiduciary responsibility to provide them with “fearless advice” (which includes “That’s not a good idea, and here’s why…”), but once the decision is made, you carry it out faithfully, even if it makes you wince. No public servant has the obligation or right to get any party or candidate elected OR de-elected. If the current administration has good policies, citizens will recognize that and support it come next election. If they’re not good policies, they’ll recognize that too, and act accordingly. That said, one’s obligations as public servant are first and foremost to the nation and constitution. Many, if not most, public servants will have careers that span multiple executive administrations. And many initiatives will have time-arcs that span multiple administrations. The obligation is to see the initiative through, regardless of which administration prompted it, simply because citizens are depending on it being successful. *UNLESS* it is unlawful.

      My deep respect to Chuck Park. While he is more articulate than many of the public servants I had the honor to work alongside, he reflects the ethic that they all show. I hope there is a way to bring more people like him into government.

  12. Great interview, i didn’t know what to expect but i got the TRUTH from this very smart and concerned diplomat.

  13. Yes IT is… Why? THIS America is in a “deep state” of chaos! 😲 Defintely and PERIOD

  14. God Bless you! We all need to rebel against this tyrannical administration!

    • Ya because he throws people in jail and murders people this has got to stop, oh wait that is Hillary

      lol fucking idiot

  15. Good for him. He came home to fight!! That’s what we all must do.

    Really appreciate him putting himself out there and speaking about this.

  17. Unapologetic cruelty, monumental incompetence, lack of consistent policies. Gee that sums up the mad king in one sentence.

    USA is the banana republic that just can’t grow a banana

  19. THIS is what patriotism looks like. Respect to you, Mr. Park.

    The term “deep state” is a Russian term used to stimulate those who believe in conspiracy theories and fan their paranoia.
