  1. Trump needs to be removed immediately!

      @Doug Lowe A unlikely as I would like it to be, it is probably much worse.

      @Dan Pictish It is important to do now before he can do more damage. He is everything bad anybody could ever be.

      @Tyrissa Brown I understand this point. You see how he’s already using the military. Imagine if he loses in November? What if he tries to turn the military on us? Establish some sort of indefinite martial law until “the votes are counted right, no more fake news/votes”. “There’s no way they could vote me out, it’s obviously Hillary and the DNC, they own the country”. Or honestly if he wins he could lash out hardcore at the protesters at that time with the military, knowing he has a second term and can get away with it.

      @awakeningspirit20You are right political analysts say he may not concede if defeated.

  2. Military friends, turn around and protect the people from the Trumpreich.

    • @I can’t seem to delete this channel. Everyone who didn’t vote is responsible for Trump too. If everyone who failed to vote had all picked another candidate, that candidate would have beaten both Trump and Clinton in a landslide. More people failed to vote than voted for either party.

    • @Up Your’s The last couple of days the only “ beating and murdering” I’ve seem has been by the police.Like tear gassing a peaceful crowd engaged in a constitutionaly protected activity so that someone can have his picture taken. Attacking journalists, who are also engaging in constitutionally protected activity, simply for doing their job.

      Yeah everything is just a prop/weapon at his disposal, not to do good for the country, but to foster his image,Trump, it’s all he has is a name, a brand, and unbelievably has become more tarnished than it was before, I still can’t believe you people voted for this clown, redemption is at hand though folks, November is around the corner, If we can hold it together tell then.

      Those of us with sense believe he never should have been hired!

    • elc: We need the police and the military on the side of the people. We need to welcome them in with open arms and demand change in policing and so much more. Chris Hedges talks about that quiet a bit.

  7. “I’m late for lunch” – GOP Senators when asked about the tear gassing of peaceful protesters in front of the White House, so that President Trump could cross the street for a photo opportunity.

    • Because they have no morals or guts

    • Juanita Goudeau | June 4, 2020 at 1:47 PM | Reply

      Trump is so dangerous he has to be stopwd

    • @Richard P – I think you have the cart before the horse here. I think the photo op was an excuse for the violent disruption of a peaceful protest, not the other way around.
      He was stung by being called Bunker Boy, and had to prove to himself that he isn’t the quivering coward we all see, by using flash grenades and tear gas on law abiding civilians.
      I can’t contain the sheer disgust I feel for cadet Bunker Baby.

      It was pathetic – Their Body Language Especially Mc Conjob SCARED and We DONT WORK For You We Work for our Corporate Masters, and They just whistled for us !!!

  8. After WWII, during the Nuremberg trials, the Nazi leadership on trial all tried to use the excuse that they had just followed orders and this defense was shot down with the argument that military officers and others in government have a duty to humanity to refuse to carry out orders they know to be wrong.
    Today, we apparently see US military leadership being the same type of pathetic cowards as the Nazi leadership turned out to be. When a new president takes office, the first order of business should be to arrest and charge any US armed forces commander who followed any order to intimidate or potentially hurt any American civilian.
    All these rotten generals and other officers shall be exposed and thrown in jail. Their military records shall be deleted and their pensions made void. Short of execution, the responsible military people shall have their lives ruined and their names exposed to live in infamy.
    When a military takes up arms against its own population, it has not only committed treason but also proven to be a force of cowards.

    Right!!!! I’m a honorable black operation enduring freedom vet. And the whole point of the military in my eyes was to protect the people not antagonize them.

    • Don Belenger | June 3, 2020 at 4:38 PM | Reply

      @greasemonkey981 like what was stated earlier the right not to follow an unlawful order

    • Robert Hardesty | June 3, 2020 at 9:50 PM | Reply

      Welcome home.

    • All respect to everyone commenting for their service from a Brit ex RAF vet but I am not sure you did swear to protect the people. You swore to:
      ” … Support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic…etc”
      The people are not mentioned.

      I swore a similar oath (of Allegiance) to my Sovereign and her successors as She is our Commander in Chief and Head of State. We have no written Constitution. Again the people are not mentioned. We have Police to ‘Keep the Queens Peace’ which means keeping law & order which itself protects people. Its not the military. But by our allegiance to Her Majesty we defend the United Kingdom and its people from our enemies as the US military defends the USA. The people are implied but its not in the Oath.
      The key discussion should be that protesters are covered by the 1st Amendment of your Constitution, the military are sworn to defend that same Constitution and therefore cannot act against anyone protected BY that Constitution. Maybe the military should be defending your Constitution against the man who called it all ‘phony’. Sadly he is also their C in C.

    The Chinese leaders must be laughing their heads off at the “democratic” USA.

    • Just Playing | June 3, 2020 at 7:17 PM | Reply

      @Matt Naslund Hong Kong is a totally different situation. Their demonstrators are not demonstrating against the racial suppression of the poor by the rich within their own country. Their demonstrators are demonstrating for the continued special treatment, and even independence, of a part of China from the rest of the country. This special treatment is a legacy of the foreign theft of Hong Kong and was never intended to mean independence from China. It is totally understandable that the Chinese government will not tolerate any claim of independence. Hong Kong is part of China. The people in Hong Kong are lucky to have special treatment and be better off than most people in China and are in fact protesting to become even better off than their compatriots. From a western point of view we may deplore the suppression of people’s right to free speech and peaceful demonstration but it is not the same as the current demonstrations in the USA.

      @Just Playing Yeah. I never said it was. But it’s still an issue, is it not? So, thanks for the history lesson, but I was already up to speed.

      I read an article by Colonel Wilkerson when he first admitted they were wrong about WMD’s in Iraq. It contained his email address & I contacted him because I was overwhelmingly against the invasion of Iraq, but I’m just a regular schmuck. I was stunned when he answered my email. I’ll never agree with his politics, but he is an honorable man I believe.

      @D Ross Until now, perhaps.

    • @Aunty Mammalia Yeah I know and that’s because the current Trump “help” has been corrupted by Trump. There’s a book out there titled “Everything Trump Touches Dies” and that apparently includes the current military.

      Yep – this guy’s got real character, for miles. This is what American parents’ have been teaching their kids for a long time — integrity matters. We’re the nation that held up Honest Abe as our top guy — partially because of his sheer incorruptability. This is an actual man.

      @SamRock : There is a difference between the rioters/looters and the citizens assembled peacefully to protest injustice. When the police and National Guard shot tear gas and rubber bullets at citizens, they violated the Constitution.

    • @SamRock the protestors were not being unlawful. you’re such a sheep.
