  1. A police riot is how trump plans to postpone the election indefinitely by declaring martial law, this is the beginning of the end.

    1. @miah davis During martial law the elections are postponed, Im not even American but I looked it up.

    2. The head of DHS is an appointee you can legally hold that position for 200 days then you must be confirmed or new appointee put in place its 30 days past the 200 he has no legal standing and no legal Authority but it’s only law who cares not Trump

  2. More than 400 thousand Americans from our greatest generation, fought and died to defeat fascism in WW2. They were the original anti-facists. And now tyranny and fascism are on the march here America.
    I’m actually glad that they aren’t around today to see what Trump is doing to the country that they served, and paid the ultimate sacrifice for.

    This election is a choice between Trump and tyranny, or America.
    MAKE A DECISION…

    1. @Wigg Licker yea man. Most people don’t understand the 666 until it’s too late. Sad to see the deceptive lies being so cherished by so many souls

    2. @Wigg Licker So you’re changing your moniker to “Jo Mamma”? Whatever. As long as you stop licking those wiggs… it’s really messing up your brain.

    1. the scary thing is he isn’t out of office till January…. imagine what he will do when he knows he is toast.

    2. You’re right, that’s when covid 19 disappears like a fart in a hurricane and we can start to disband the Democrat party for slavery, racism, jim crow and opposing the 14th and 15th amendments of the constitution.

  3. On top of everything, no one talks about stopping Trump. Just like they haven’t for the last four yrs.

    1. In 2016 trump said the enemy was Mexicans and Muslims. In 2020, the enemy is the citizens/Anarchists

    2. Pappy Chulo : The focus, right now, has to be on OUTLAWING Secret Police units, and getting them OFF THE STREETS. It’s them that trump must used to take away your democracy. Take his stick away and he’s powerless. They are ILLEGAL ANYWAY! Are you finally getting it? The Trump’s and half the GOP KNOW they’re going to JAIL, after losing the elections. They WILL NOT ALLOW free and fair elections. But, it, “looks,” less like the Coup it is, when we’re all used to and NUMBED by Secret Police units.

    3. @starlite*33
      Wait till Trump pulls that 1993 video of Biden in the Senate, raging on about how dangerous blacks are and how they should be incarcerated and segregated from white society. That was the precursor to the 1994 crime bill that jailed tens of thousands of blacks for pot seeds. Check Jimmy Dore to see the full video. Can’t wait till Trump beats Biden to death with it.
      That’s just for openers. With his admission of extortion of the Ukraine, Tara Reade and his money laundering schemes he and Hunter have put together in China and the Ukraine, Biden is done like dinner, stick a fork in that brain dead, career criminal.

  4. Claiming you are the “law and order” president while using images of social unrest that happened while you were president….is an interesting re-election strategy. 🤔😆

    1. @HeavierThanLight 😂 I don’t know where you are from but the U.S. army would stomp all over your country if they wanted to.

    2. @mako zero What is wrong? That burning down buildings, stealing from businesses, killing people, and tearing down statues are bad? Yes, they are bad and I agree that they are bad. Do you disagree with that?

    3. @Jimmy MacKinnon and you use sites like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter for your sources. How can you credibly accuse me of spreading misinformation?

    4. @Utha 😂 Again, you are someone who has incorrect assumptions. You are 5 steps behind everyone else and it is very obvious. Btw, thanks for telling me where you get your information from. Sounds like you are really lacking behind everyone else.

    5. @Jimmy MacKinnon I know you think your crackpot websites are truth tellers, it’s sad though that you haven’t worked out that Trump TV only reports what your Orange stain in chief wants to hear. My sources can be fact checked, which I do on a regular basis and I fact check some of the right wing garbage that gets posted as news. Most of that died fail, by the way. It also hasn’t been missed that you have yet to post any sources that you use. Are you to ashamed to admit you watch conspiracy theory based content?

  5. One of the most revered leaders of my beloved Marine Corps denounced Trump for his divisive and authoritarian actions against American citizens, and against our Constitution.
    Semper Fi..

    “I have watched this week’s unfolding events, angry and appalled. The words ‘Equal Justice Under Law’ are carved in the pediment of the United States Supreme Court. This is precisely what protesters are rightly demanding. It is a wholesome and unifying demand—one that all of us should be able to get behind. We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers. The protests are defined by tens of thousands of people of conscience who are insisting that we live up to our values—our values as people and our values as a nation. We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution.”

    “Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us. We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership. We can unite without him, drawing on the strengths inherent in our civil society. This will not be easy, as the past few days have shown, but we owe it to our fellow citizens; to past generations that bled to defend our promise; and to our children.”

    “Instructions given by the military departments to our troops before the Normandy invasion reminded soldiers that ‘The Nazi slogan for destroying us … was “Divide and Conquer.” Our American answer is “In Union there is Strength.”’ We must summon that unity to surmount this crisis—confident that we are better than our politics.”

    “When I joined the military, some 50 years ago, I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Never did I dream that troops taking that same oath would be ordered under any circumstance to violate the Constitutional rights of their fellow citizens—much less to provide a bizarre photo op for the elected commander-in-chief, with military leadership standing alongside.”

    1. @ST7A Bad Karma Are you talking about the federal building that was already closed and boarded up because of covid?

    2. @Ash Roskell Trump and Barr’s strategy must be outstrategized. We’re talking Putin Middle East level strategy. That entails more than photo ops.

  6. Germany went from a democracy to dictatorship in 4 years with a very active minority dominating a majority of decent people. The way it happened has many parallels with what is happening in the USA today – wake up America.

    1. @charlielauffer well the criminals that are marching with BLM while also Burning, Looting, Murdering, rioting, and destroying the livelihood of small businesses, I wouldn’t consider those criminals to be good people. Would you? While there are BLM supporters peacefully protesting, there are also many that are violent and criminal.

    2. @Tarquin Bright blah blah blah blah blah. The use of hyperbole and melodrama is laughable bruh. Come with facts or keep beclowning yourself.

    3. @Jimmy MacKinnon Socialism is in the left. Fascism is in the far-right of thr political ladder. Go educate yourself moron !

    4. @White Knight,
      Don’t believe everything you read
      hitler was a Left brained artist, author, political activist, lunatic, racist, authoritarian, mentally ill murderer, Full Blown Liberal Through and Through, everything Conservatives are not, especially American Conservatives!
      – You can’t get anymore Liberal than hitler!
      – All of the anti-American Leftist who are far left and left the American political spectrum for a spectrum of anarchy, socialism, communism and hitler style fascism are the rioters!

  7. I’ve been ranting for months that Trump wants Martial Law, enabling him to ‘postpone’ the election.

    1. @miah davis Chicago is the only one covered on the news a lot. The other cities you mentioned I didn’t even no they had a problem until you mentioned it. Funny you seem to no a lot about those cities but they never get covered by mainstream media. You do realize Seattle Chicago and Portland are only the first three cities on his list. You are basically asking why didn’t he pick the republican cities first. I cant tell you. I would like to know what news station that you watch that talks about those cities. You are basically talking about cities that never get much coverage. How often is new Orleans on the news. Nashville is never on the news unless the are talking about country music. I never hear crime reports from there.

    2. @Diana Hulstine Diana you will have to use complete sentences I have no idea what your talking about.

    3. Factsthat Hurtfeelings I have actually not heard much about Chicago or any other cities then Portland and Louisville. I can tell which news you watch… fox

    4. @miah davis fox , CNN, and CBS news all mention Chicago. Actually CBS evening news is where I mostly hear the Chicago stuff. I don’t watch fox that often and I’m not a republican. Amazing how i read your mind. Trump did say there are other cities on his list in the future. So i cant tell you why he picked the order he did. I do live in Oregon and I’m glad he is in Portland. The only reason I do watch fox news sometimes is cause they have the best looking women in the country. I appreciate glazing at beauty. Liberal women are hard to look at. Msnbc has Rachel Maddox. She aint much to look at. Do you think I watch fox for the news, I watch it for the ladies. Pink and purple hair doesn’t turn me on. It might make liberal women feel powerful but it does nothing for me.

    5. Factsthat Hurtfeelings well I will agree with you that fox does have some good looking women lol. However, I will not watch it cause it only pushes trump narrative

  8. As we all try to deal with this sociopath, remember that he is, quite clearly, *a sadist.*
    He actively enjoys the suffering of others. Pleading with him to stop causing people pain,
    as the Mayor said she and others are doing, gives him pleasure, and drives him to inflict more pain.

    1. @Dawn Anderson That sweet truth kool-aid? Yeah…love the truth. Why dont you? Did you watch the video?

    2. @Sam Smith
      They’re not reporters.
      They’re marxist activist. Everything out of their mouth…… is a lie.
      “Thirty shot and twelve dead in peaceful protest.” say the Dems, CNN and MSNBC….That’s all the proof anyone with a functioning brain, needs.

    1. @Eric Plumhoff Then you didnt watch it…the terrorist rioters were attacking and kicking one on the ground. Try and actually watch and pay attention next time. Also…it would help if you pull your head out of the sand and watch the live streams that play every night of the riots. That way you can actually be informed by the source instead of listening to the fake news for your daily brainwashing

    2. @Eric Plumhoff Looks like you need to go do your research kid. get that head out of the sand and learn to be an informed adult before you vote. Kind of scary you dont know whats been going on by now when its been happening for months already. Actually its just pathetic and sad and frankly if you refuse to be an informed adult that is so against educating yourself then you shouldnt be allowed to vote.

  9. To put the country under martial law rather than hold an election he knows he will lose might already be his plan.

    1. @Ray Bellows Trump don’t need Putin majority of Americans see the liberals have lost there minds and hate seeing all the violence they enjoy Dems are hanging themselves. You will cry four more years.

    2. @Ray Bellows What do you think Ivanka’s Personally Owned Voting Machines were designed to do? And WHO designed the components? The GRU?
      She a Bimbo, she knows nothing about Electronics. Why else would she go overseas to procure something that can Easily be made right here in America?
      Money is no obstacle, …the Answer?… Oversight as per the Electronic Hardware OR Software on board that can easily be Hacked by the Russians.

    3. All you guys bang on about Russian election meddling, but google gets busted admitting to election meddling in favor of democrats and you say nothing.

  10. “One certainly hopes it doesn’t come to that”

    Um… your hopes were toast 3 years ago! He will

    1. IM A SPECIALIST IN NARCISSISM I can absolutely guarantee you Trump will impose Martial Law before the election.

      If he HAS the power to do it – HE WILL do it. To be honest, anyone can see this, has he EVER held back on any power he has???

    2. Tony Gunk : And, that’s why your comment has been passed over, by so many decent people. Because, from the start, they didn’t want to admit that America has the biggest Racism problem in the free world, and now they’re at a point where they don’t want to admit they’re in a Coup. Just too bitter a pill to swallow, for most Americans, who can’t grasp the nettle, and just be HONEST with themselves. America’s enemies have exploited that weakness, and now our Democracy has fallen. Why? Just read the comments? Everyone’s STILL talking like trump will go to JAIL when Biden takes over. They can’t bring themselves to admit that they ALL KNOW THIS, AND AREN’T GOING TO ALLOW ELECTIONS, UNLESS THEY’RE FAKED!
      Are you finally getting it, America? The Trump’s and half the GOP KNOW they’re going to JAIL, after losing the elections. They WILL NOT ALLOW free and fair elections. But, it, “looks,” less like the Coup it is, when we’re all used to and NUMBED by Secret Police units.

  11. This is all in preparation for dealing with the mass protests when Trump loses the election and refuses to leave office.

    1. @Mr Ross Grafitti doesn’t destroy a city though does it? Portland is still standing. What’s being destroyed here is American democracy.

    2. @You And Open Flames
      It depends on what channel you watch. Fox and friends show the total destructions. CNN and MSNBC show peaceful demonstrations.

      I didn’t watch any of the channels. I still don’t think Portland is destroyed.

    3. @You And Open Flames How is American Democracy being destroyed by sending in police to stop criminals? And yes, even something small like graffiti is a crime. It’s trashy and destroys the image, comfort and integrity of a city.

  12. So Trump ignores the constitution, ignores the Mayor and Governor and sends in Federal troops claiming LAW and Order and that legal protests will be squashed right away. 1 week later there are still protests. and the situation is worse. Yep, that sounds like Trump.

  13. This Transition of administrations between November and January is going to be one for the history books.

    Once those who understand the provisions of the Second Amendment educate themselves of its constitutional intent, they will align with those who are lawfully exercising their First and Fourth Amendment Rights..

    Civil War is coming.
    The people will prevail.

  14. The Mayor is right and you people gave trump the permission by not calling him out again and again and again until it was too late, you reap what you sow.

  15. That is the militarys sole job protect this country from enemies foreign and DOMESTIC he needs to recognize that.

    1. We don’t want the military in our cities. They don’t belong here. That is what our police are for. They are perfectly capable of handling it. Just because you don’t think so doesn’t make it true

  16. Turning Portland into an “Iraq” where military will run the country and has the right to shoot upon detection of any threat. This is bad…. really bad.

    1. You’re way off. These are just police officers in riot gear to put down a riot. Everything you said was just crazy talk

  17. My hope is that the military will uphold the Constitution when trump tries to keep power by force.
