    So Donnie’s press conference mentions Floyd once and dismissively, while focusing on his tough-guy in the bunker talk. He has no words for days, and now comes out after the military comes to The White House. He wants to make it about “Antifa riots” and “terrorism” instead of the issues of systemic racism and inequality. He is also loving the change of attention from Coronavirus. This will come roaring back after the precipitous re-openings.
    Sad for America…

      @Michael Bray Wow! That is impressive!You really know what you’re talking about! You’re the first person I’ve come across who does.

    • @Burn Like Neon Antifas are pro-American, tRumpian hordes are pro-Putin.

    • @Burn Like Neon lies and tRumpanzee manipulation only works with low IQ Rumptards. 😬😬😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣😷😷😷

      @Burn Like Neon antifa tends to be reactive not on the attack unlike proud bois and other alt right silliness. But to answer your question: 1. How about a system of review for officer involved shootings? One that includes members of the community instead of just cops reviewing cops. 2. A president whose willing to acknowledge that systemic racism exists, instead of ignoring it. 3. Let the governors do their job as they see fit instead of micromanaging idiocracy

  2. The rich politicians took care of their own.

    Ari, you have wonderful presentations when you discuss and analyze current events. I appreciate and feel the passion in your discussions.

  4. History repeats
    an Empire in decline

  5. Civilian Review Boards need to be installed to scrutinize their local police with the same authority to investigate and prefer charges as the Police Internal Affairs.
    The police know how to get around the current systems obviously and they are literally murdering and brutalizing American citizens.

    • Let the very people who live in the community the police serve and have them decide wether or not the police is treating their community right. After all it is the people’s taxes of that community that pay the police wages. The customer should have a right to decide how the police act

    A President that incites violence should be removed from office…IMMEDIATELY!!

    Courts, media, & the public need to “Say it Loud!” – *If the races were reversed* how would we deal with this crime? America’s segregation & slavery culture needs to end. Apply 1 standard!

    • 1) the leading cause of death for black men age 1-44 is homicide by other black man (CDC, FBI). Reread as needed, until it sinks in.
      2) there is no racial disparity between whites and blacks in deaths per arrest (blacks are not killed by cops more than whites). Again, reread as needed.
      3) there’s not even any evidence the cop who killed Floyd was a racist. There are some terrible but non-racist cops.
      4) Jews have been persecuted more than any group for millennia but they don’t make endless excuses or act a fool.
      There is no justification for the barbarism, destruction & theft right now. ‬

      In the case of this presidency, the moment he was voted in and before he was inaugurated. I could feel in in my bones, my wife did also. and you can’t get any whiter than us..!

    • @whalesong999 I tried so hard to get others to understand that he is not the one and here we are

    We been here all the time but this time we have mobile devices.

    • Without a mobile device Chauvin would be back on the streets with his coward pals looking for others to brutalize.

      Yes. With the advent of small cameras and recording devices, it presents a new means of getting a point across that has been so hard to present in the past. What I see that needs to go along with it on the behalf of anyone being approached by a goading law enforcement officer is to Not Resist, don’t play into an altercation. That’s going to stave off some senseless shootings and deaths and stretch out more means to communicate to disarm a situation. So many of these shootings involved people who immediately into a defensive mode that progressed into more violence leading to a shooting. Please, folks, yes, rights are rights but they’re not going to pay attention to that, they just want an excuse to wage their private war. Don’t go there, find another way.

    The BEST protest against nazi supremacy in the WH is for 100% of citizens to register to VOTE. And for 100% voter turn out!!! Also keep fact-checking IQ-45 & his accomplices.

      adafu2 Yet the biggest puzzle is why millions upon millions would crawl, swim, fly ( legally or illegally), anchored babies, anchored properties, sneaked in their government’s corrupted money, literally threw their mommies down the train to come to, oh I don’t know, your descriptions of this most violent country!?! 7 billions people are fools except you biased bigot?!?😝You couldn’t express your 2 cents on this American invented platform if it’s not for us war- torn geniuses endowing the world with all freedom technologically, physically and creatively!!

      @Corpus Callosum I wouldn’t want to live in America. Not rent free with a gold clock and a pension.

    Huge pay offs for CORPORATIONS BUT a measly $1200 for the rest of us for the next ten weeks

  16. Vote every Republican Out of the office including Clown Trump. Whenever they are in power country is in Chaos.

    • Noticed that, did you? Republicans like to bully and force their white privilege onto others, with or without their approval. Democrats stop all the violence and rebuild our economy only for the next Republican to come in, spend all the money Dems saved to shell out to rich friends/companies, creating a larger divide between rich and poor. Cycle needs to stop.

    • whalesong999 | June 1, 2020 at 9:19 PM | Reply

      That’s been true for virtually all I can remember of politics in my 79 years. Apparently, the creed of the Republicans is to dumb down the electorate so much that they can’t see or reason out what’s actually happening. I’ve been mostly apolitical all my time so as not to encourage these dreadful power mongers.
