    Domination of the streets: in the U.S. city of Buffalo, two officers were arrested after forcibly beating a 75-year-old man during a peaceful anti-racist demonstration. The man is seriously injured in the hospital.

    We seem to be in a DICTATORSHIP. He’s ALWAYS been able to walk down the street. It’s his own cowardice that stops him.

    • Is that he has had pretty much walls put up around the whithouse general area it is looking a lot less like the house of the people and more like the imperial palace

      Ya think… The People need to TAKE THEIR POWER BACK ON ELECTION DAY… Reporters have REPEATEDLY tried to confront Republican Senators to get their comments on the VIOLENT ASSAULT ON PEACEFUL PROTESTORS BEFORE ST. JOHN’S CHURCH; they keep dodging reporters… It seems they DON’T WANNA GET INVOLVED. If they don’t wanna get involved, THEY SHOULD NOT BE ON THE PAYROLL OF THE US SENATE!!! SENATORS TAKE AN OATH TO DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION, THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND, WHICH TRUMP JUST ORDERED BE VIOLATED. WE NEED TO CLEAN HOUSE ON ELECTION DAY!!! DO YOU REALLY WANT MORE OF THE SAME?

      Paula Gandolfo Trump wants to build concentration camps, and use numbers to identify folks. When he took away those asylum seeker kids, and separated them from their parents, I knew he was testing the waters with dictatorship. I saw through his trickery. The beast is Lucifer, and needs to be taken down. What are Americans waiting for? Why not overthrow him, and make America great again? GOD bless America. Sad state of affairs really! Troubling and sad ,indeed! 🥂🍺Cheers and beers mates!

Take heed my friend, take heed, before it’s too late! The writing is on the wall. It’s up to you to make a difference. ❤️ love you loads. 🥂🍺Cheers and beers mates!

      Make America Great Again: 40 million un-employed, over 100,000 Americans death because of Covid-19, protesters in all major American cities. Trump must go, before he grabs total power, just as he used to grab women.

      Nota Bene Americans are not taught the facts of history. They think that history starts and stops with them. You have 33,000,000 people who believe the world is 5,000 years old and who will do anything to keep power over the rest of mankind. Not only that – they want the Apocolypse. Christianity has forced violence and death on populations for 2,000 years. What are you all going to do about these people? Try to properly educate their children and wait for them to die out? You folks need to deal with your facist tendencies and fire every police officer and government official who holds these opinions of a violent racist facist tendencies and strengthen your the people and organizations who support human legal rights.

  8. if you guys watch channel 4 news on youtube one of there videos show the DC protests and one of the “national guards” having the eagle insignia which is the 101st airborne. thats like having the The 1st Battalion British Army, Parachute Regiment in Northern Ireland way back in the 70’s. it didnt go down well.

  9. Right? Be identified 🤬🤬 I remembered a school cop with his name significantly covered pulled me over what was he trying to do?!

    The invasion of Ukraine started with masked Russian soldiers who wore no insignia.

    How long is this train crash going to continue ?

  12. Just a reminder when watching this video remember the 1st Amendment ‘the right of the people to peaceably assemble”.

    • Interested party | June 5, 2020 at 10:25 PM | Reply

      Peaceable assembly is a Constitutional Right, so EVEN IN SPITE OF THESE NON-VIOLENT PROTESTORS HAVING A LEGAL RIGHT TO PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY, THEY WERE VIOLENTLY ASSAULTED. WHAT’S NEXT, (REGULAR) BULLETS? SHOOTING PROTESTORS EXERCISING A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT? WOULD THE US MILITARY BE USED FOR THIS? INSTEAD OF TRYING TO DIFFUSE THIS CRISIS, TRUMP HAS ESCALATED IT… INSTEAD OF TRYING TO UNIFY THE COUNTRY, HE DIVIDES US. REMEMBER, THE CORONAVIRUS IS A “HOAX” THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO QUICKLY BLOW OVER…

  13. The hired Mercenaries lined up behind the National Guard have no identification, Agency designation, or matching equipment.

    Are they even Americans?

  14. If, and I mean if, the US recovers from this authoritarian threat there definitely needs to be a separation of the Executive and the DOJ. The president appointing sycophants as AG is a crazy situation

    I still remember the Tea party and right-wing nuts complaining about the United States turning to a police state under the dictatorship of Obama.

    Guess what we have now dumb-dumbs!!!

      Yeah I used to eat and attend services at the alamogordo methodist church. They started in 2014 saying Obama was going to declare martial law since he could only do 2 terms. I quit going to fake Christians!

    • theunholysoul | June 5, 2020 at 8:59 AM | Reply

      @Stephen Young That is the main reason why I no longer go to church. I am simply a Christian who follows the true teaching of Christ with a critical mind. The end of the day his teaching is all about being emphatic and the true meaning of love. We do not need a stone building with a spire or dome and a man in front of us to tell us that!

      I’ve realised then the church leaders are like anyone on this planet they are fallible and corruptible.

      I was accused of blasphemy and unholy when I criticised them back in the 90s.
      Hence, theunholysoul!

      Peace and love brother!

    • @theunholysoul the rest seem to have Forgotten this….and it’s pretty sad.

      @Eli Beserra You are right.

      I am also afraid people will forget about this historical event in the near future.

      They will forget the crime committed by their own president (Trump) and the cowardly act he enacted to suppress the 1st amendment right of the people!

      If we survive this horrible situation we are in now we must remind ourselves and the future generation of the fragility of our democracy.

      We must also remind ourselves that our lives have no value if our fellow Black Americans lives do not matter!!

  16. He gassed his own citizens for a photo op.

      @Mike You do realize that you are what you accuse others as being. Again you are proving yourself to side with fascism and even using old tricks from the nazi playbook to do so, “Accuse the other of that which you are guilty”. Spoken by Hitler’s propaganda minister during world war 2. Every time someone like you opens up their mouth to point the finger you are just digging yourself deeper and deeper into that fascist hole. It is a good thing no one is around to help you out of it.

    • @Patrick Bednark sorry I didn’t realize it was fascism to defend innocent people and their property against violent threats such as yourself apparently The new face of the Democratic party social justice warriors who have no respect for the judicial system or the law. You try and justify the Acts that of violence and destruction to something that fits with your narrative The entire situation has nothing to do with race this is a direct attack on Donald Trump. Just a heads up to try and topple capitalism is going to take a lot more than what you’ve done already. Good luck to you I’m done chatting

      CNN reported, “As I watched this speech in the Rose Garden — and you could actually hear the flashbangs going off in the background — and then watched with horror as those young Americans who were gathering simply to exercise their First Amendment rights, protesting massive social injustice in this country, sought to make a positive change, were being driven down the street by riot police with tear gas, flashbangs, being driven down the street just to clear a path so that we could have a photo op in front of St. John’s Episcopal church. That’s what happens in authoritarian regimes. It doesn’t happen in the United States and we shouldn’t tolerate it.”  Agreed!  Read those last two sentences again… protestors were “driven down the street by riot police with tear gas, flashbangs, being driven down the street just to clear a path that we could have a photo op” in front of Trump standing in from of St. John’s church with a bible in his hand. This certainly speaks to Trump’s priorities, demonstrates his level of care/concern for these American protestors, or lack thereof. REMEMBER THIS, REMEMBER ALL OF IT ON ELECTION DAY… Instead of trying to diffuse this situation, Trump escalated it.

    • @Interested party CNN has a narrative and it’s against everything America stands for if they want you to believe something they will make you believe it.some of the explosions you heard were massive fireworks being thrown at police by rioters looters protesters including bricks and frozen bottles of water I will remember this on election day The day the Democrat backed gang antifa destroyed many lives in a few major cities because it’s either your way or the city burns and the silent majority does not want it.

  17. “This is an awful man. Holding up a book he has never read. In front of a Church that he never attends. Trying to invoke laws he doesn’t understand. Against fellow Americans he sees as enemies. Wielding a Military he dodged serving. To protect power he gained by accepting foreign interference. Exploiting fear and anger he loves to stoke. After failing to address the pandemic he was warned about. And building it all on countless lies and childish inanity.”
    -Father Robert Hendrickson, Rector, Saint Phillips in the Hills Episcopal Church
    Remember to vote him out…to unite this nation and heal.
