Sean Hannity CANCELS Geraldo Rivera


>>Geraldo has disagreed with other personalities
on Fox News when it comes to war with Iran. In fact, there was a video that went viral,
where he is saying it’s a terrible idea to escalate tensions with Iran and Brian Kilmeade
went at it with him. Now, recently he was supposed to make an appearance
on Hannity show, but that appearance was cancelled. And it seems like it was cancelled specifically
because Geraldo was gonna continue making the case that war with Iran is a bad idea. So he starts off with this tweet. Urging Donald Trump to keep his powder dry,
please don’t let this spin out of control. You can always hit them back. Please don’t let this become an escalating,
you hit me, I hit you back harder until we have another full blown, bloody Mid East war
on our hands. What would we win? And so then he ends up responding to someone
who apparently liked his tweet and he says, thanks. I’ll be on with Sean Hannity tonight counseling
restraint and talking about these deeply disturbing developments. And then later he said, Nevermind, Hannity
just canceled me. And I just like to end this whole exchange
with Malcolm Fleschner tweet, cancel culture strikes again.>>I really liked that tweet. So look, before we open this up for discussion,
I just wanna remind you of how passionately Geraldo feels about avoiding war with Iran. This was a segment that Fox had earlier. Take a look.>>Now we have taken this huge military escalation. Now I fear the worst. You’re gonna see the US markets go crazy today. You’re gonna see the price of oil spiking
today. This is a very, very big deal.>>And I don’t know if you heard
>>But this isn’t about his resume of blood and death, it is about what was next. We stopped the next attack, that’s what I
think you’re missing.>>According to the Secretary of State.>>By what credible source,
>>Okay.>>Can you predict what the next Iranian move
would be?>>They’ve been excellent, the US Intelligence
has been excellent since 2003, when we invaded Iraq, disrupted the entire region for no real
reason. Don’t for a minute start cheering this on. What you have done, what we have done, we
have unleashed.>>I will cheer
>>Then you, like Lindsay Graham, have never met a war you didn’t like.>>That is not true, and don’t even say that.>>If President Trump wanted de-escalation-
>>We should just let him kill us for another 15 years.>>If President Trump wanted de-escalation
and to bring our troops home. What this was a reaction to-
>>What about the 700 Americans who are dead? Should they not be happy because of him?>>What about the tens of thousands of Iraqis
who have died since 2003? You have to start seeing things. What the hell are we doing in Baghdad in the
first place? Why are we there? Why aren’t these forces home?>>You’re blaming President Bush for the maniacal
killing of Saddam Hussein?>>I am blaming President Bush in 2003 for
those fake weapons of mass destruction that never existed and the con job that drove us
into that war.>>Listen, you gotta give people credit when
they’re right, and Geraldo was right there. I think that he took a strong position. I also give Geraldo credit for consistently
speaking out against Donald Trump’s disgusting immigration policies on Fox. I’m sure that’s not an easy environment to
share your accurate opinions in. But yeah, so Hannity canceled. Now, who knows? Maybe they canceled him to maybe replace that
segment with something that involves a legal analyst or?>>I don’t know, should we give Hannity the
benefit of the doubt?>>Hannity did not want any of that smoke. He’s like man, I saw what you did to kill
me. And I don’t think any more clearly than he
does. His producers probably said hey, we’re gonna
go ahead and cancel Geraldo because first off, Geraldo’s only mistake was revealing
what he wanted to do that night. When he talked to the person who retweeted
him or liked it and he goes, thanks I’m gonna be on later to make sure I council against
this. They’re like no that’s not the agenda tonight. That’s not what we’re on board for. Of course, yes again we’re speculating. But I mean, if it’s not the case, go and let
us know what the other difference was. I mean, they canceled on me tonight so I can’t
come on and say what I had to say. So I mean, again, what’ll happen is you end
up revealing what your real intentions are and what your real beliefs are. And people on the region are like, well, 700
Americans were lost. You don’t care about the Americans being lost
when it comes to anything else except for pursuing war. And then so, of course, when Geraldo brings
up the tens of thousands of Iraqis dying, there’s no answer to that. Those aren’t real people? Those are casualties of war. Or when we talk about how we wanna make sure
we keep American troops out of harm’s way. They go hey, well American troops they signed
up for it. They knew what they were getting themselves
into. Somehow when it comes to having any kinda
empathy towards people it’s all based on whether or not you’re falling not behind this president
and his line of ridiculousness. Secondly, Geraldo use Trump’s talking point
about we gotta get out of these stupid wars. You can’t follow a guy who continues to contradict
his own agenda and policies throughout his presidency.>>Right, exactly. And look, it’s hilarious to me to hear anyone
on Fox News or even anyone in cable news talk about how egregious it is or how much of an
injustice it is when Americans die. When in our own country they constantly push
for domestic policy that leads to more Americans dying.>>Totally, my god.>>I mean, how many American die every year
because they don’t have adequate health insurance? And they will attack Universal Healthcare,
over and over again. They’ll talk about how we can’t afford it,
can’t pay for it. When it comes to beating that war-drum, by
the way, which is the most expensive policy to support, they’re all for it. They don’t care about American lives. American’s overall, just like troops are nothing
more than pawns, nothing more than props, that these lowly individuals use to make their
arguments when it’s convenient for them. But when push comes to shove, you think they
really care about the lives of Americans? How about all those segments that Fox News
has done on homeless people? Do they care about them? They defame them, they slander them as dead
beats, as druggists, as all sorts of things. They don’t care about human lives. What cares about is appeasing Trump, making
sure that Trump is happy with him. Because you never know, you might lose access
to Trump if you criticize him. And you might not be able to get a job in
Trump’s administration. We all know that Trump likes to pick people
out of Fox News. So it’s just gross. And look, not to get too leftist, I guess,
whatever you wanna call it. But that’s what capitalism is, that’s what
capitalism does. It’s all about profit, it’s all about ensuring
that you have the upper hand and you increase your chances of making more money, right? That’s what happens in our media all the time,
right?>>Making money and being a tough guy, that’s
the other part of it. Even people who don’t have, I guess, the interests
for lining their pockets. It’s, hey, we’re tough guys, we’re America. Hey, we don’t let them F with us like this. Hey, you’re not gonna say that to me. There’s a superiority complex that we have
from the moment that we’re born that says, we have to make sure that we talk about how
much better we are than you no matter what. You can be on the lowest totem pole in America. But you’re like, I’m an American, I’m better
than you. But your life actually has nothing to do with
this American dream that they’ve sold you. That you’re supposed to somehow pursue. And one more thing that they don’t care about
lives for is school shootings, mass shootings, Car Club shootings. We don’t care about that stuff, thoughts and
prayers. What bombs we dropping on people to stop that
from happening? American lives are being lost every day. You don’t care about American lives.>>Again, it’s just something that they cite
when it’s convenient to them to support a policy that’s horrendous, usually. And, in this case, it’s escalated tensions
and war with Iran. So, again, credit where credit is due. I think Geraldo is doing a good job. And I think that he should be proud of the
fact that Hannity canceled his appearance, right? Look, I don’t know what his future is gonna
look like. Obviously, Shep Smith, who had the audacity
to speak the truth every once in a while on Fox News is no longer there. But we know what Fox News is, Geraldo knows
what Fox News is. I don’t agree with Geraldo on many issues. But if you have any integrity and you actually
want to share truthful analysis with an audience, Fox News is not the place to do it. You’re hardly even seen on cable news shows
period, much less on Fox News.

Lindsey Graham REAL SALTY About War Powers Act


>>The House of Representatives has just approved
a resolution that Mike Lee in favor of. Its the War Powers Act, that would limit Donald
Trump’s ability to unilaterally go to war. And of course, this follows Trump’s decision
to assassinate Iran’s top military general. Now this is non-binding at the moment, and
look, let’s keep it real. The likelihood of Mitch McConnell even bringing
this type of legislation up for a vote in the Senate is, I can’t even imagine that would
happen. But it is important to note that there are
Republicans who are supportive of this including Mike Lee and Rand Paul. But there are Republicans who are vehemently
against it, and are speaking out against their fellow republicans who dare to question Trump
and his unilateral ability to go to war with any country he pleases. So first let’s go to Senator Lindsey Graham
who loves going to war, and would like the idea of Donald Trump, starting another one. Here’s what he had to say about Senators Mike
Lee and Rand Paul.>>And they’re overreacting quite frankly. go debate all you want to, I’m gonna debate
you. Trust me, I’m gonna let people know that at
this moment in time to play this game with a War Powers Act which I think is unconstitutional. Is that whether you mean to or not, you’re
empowering the enemy. You can have 535 commander in chiefs. The War Powers Act design constitutional,
there’s only one commander chief. If you don’t like the action, the Commander
in Chief is taking as Congress, you could defend those actions. We have control of the power of the purse,
but they’re great Americans. But when we get on the floor of the United
States Senate and the next couple weeks, and talking about restricting the ability to deal
with the religious Nazis and Iran. It will be seen by the Iranians as division
at home, I hope we won’t do it.>>Now the War Powers Resolution is not unconstitutional. In fact, I’m gonna go ahead, and read you
a portion from the constitution that is relevant to this conversation. Article 1, Section 8 of the US Constitution
stipulates that Congress shall have power to declare war, grant letters of marque and
reprisal. And make rules concerning captures on land
and water, to raise and support armies. And also to make rules for the government
and regulation of the land and naval forces.>>That could mean anything.>>That’s weird, it’s weird that he would
call it unconstitutional when it’s part of our constitution. Now the resolution that just passed in the
House, I wanna give you a few more details about it. As I mentioned earlier it’s non-binding on
the president and would not require his signature. But house speaker Nancy Pelosi nonetheless
insisted it has real teeth, because it is a statement of the Congress of the United
States.>>Yeah.>>I can’t believe that she would think that’s
true.>>I think that she believes that she needs
to pretend that she thinks it’s true. And which is disappointing because I think
that the situation we find ourselves in almost every way is terrible, and I wish that we
weren’t there. I wish that Donald Trump had acted differently
or not acted at all. But I do think that has provided an opening,
we know that two out of three Americans think that the killing of Soleimani has made the
US less safe. I think that we’re seeing in the news just
today a demonstration of how theoretically we might be less safe. I think that, that situation the fact that
the people don’t want a war with Iran combined with Donald Trump’s speech where he wants
to pretend that he’s interested in peace and diplomacy. Creates an opening where you can put way more
pressure on Donald Trump and the Republicans not just to limit their ability to start a
war in the future. But say okay, if you want peace, if you want
diplomacy, we want diplomatic talks by this date. We want you to pull out of the region by this
time. We think well if you want peace, then we certainly
don’t need to be spending so much money abroad. Then let’s talk about dialing down the military
budget being spent overseas like if the people don’t want a->>That’s hilarious, John.>>I know it’s ridiculous-
>>And I know that most of the Democrats don’t even support it but-
>>Right.>>If he wants peace, if his base even some
of them want peace, certainly the voters in general want peace. Then let’s push for actual peace not just
a little bit more red tape for him to go through if he wants to bomb Tehran.>>Also, I would argue that Democrats should
have thought about the future when Obama was president. Because they were fine with President Obama
making decisions unilaterally when it came to what was going on in the Middle East. That was exactly when democrats should have
like thought ahead of time, and limited the powers of the executive branch to unilaterally
make these types of decisions. And so-
>>Yeah.>>And look, Obama was, I’m not even gonna
say he was like more responsible. I mean, he expanded Bush era foreign policy
and expanded the drone wars. I mean, we didn’t go into Yemen for the first
time under Trump’s leadership, that started under Obama. And so we have to hold our own party accountable,
and I know that we do that here on the show on a regular basis, but I’m talking about
Democrats, right? We need to be aware of the flaws in our own
party, and we need to demand more. And I know that people like Nancy Pelosi are
very uncomfortable, and get very offended by that. But you should read my latest op ed in the
hill. So you can see how she enables Donald Trump
more than anyone, right->>Take a look maybe sure.>>Yeah, actually, you tweeted it out. So you guys should check out his Twitter account,
I think I might have too.>>I have one coming up in the next few days
actually, about this very topic.>>I love it. Well, let’s go to Mike Lee, because he actually
responded to Lindsey Graham’s nonsense.>>If that is fundamentally antithetical to
the Constitution. Look, I love Lindsey Graham, he’s a fantastic
guy. We work closely together on a lot of issues. He’s dead wrong insofar as he’s suggesting
that this is playing a game. Mr. Graham, the Constitution of the United
States is not a game. In federal of 69, Alexander Hamilton explained,
why it is that we put the war declaration power in Article 1, Section 8? Why we put it with congress rather than the
executive? There are good reasons for that, and those
reasons need to be respected.>>So he makes good points there, so does
Ron Paul in this next video.>>I think it’s sad when people have this
fake sort of drape of patriotism, and anybody that disagrees with them is not a patriot. Look, I love my country, I have many family
members who have served in the military, and continue to serve in the military. I love my country as much as the next guy,
but for him to insult and say that somehow we’re not as patriotic as he is. He hasn’t even read the history of the Constitution. The Constitution specifically says that the
war making power is resides in Congress. He believes in this unitary theory of the
executive that presidents can do whatever they want. The only way you can stop them is by defending
a war. That’s not what our founding fathers said. It’s not what the Constitution says. And he insults the Constitution, our founding
fathers. And what we do stand for in this republic
by making light of it, and accusing people of lacking patriotism. I think that’s a low, gutter type of response.>>But I do have criticism for Rand Paul and
Mike Lee. While they might be right on this specific
issue, they have been enabling Donald Trump over, and over, and over again. They’ve been defending him, and his lies his
wrongdoings as executive, or Commander in Chief over and over again. And so they even did it after making these
types of statements because look, what do they care about? What do lawmakers unfortunately care about
more than anything else, their political careers? And when you go up against Donald Trump, there
are consequences if you’re a Republican. And so they have to add all these caveats
about Lindsey Graham, and specifically Donald Trump when they dare to cross him on issues
like war. Take a look.>>We’re not quite at war, and I hope that
this will be an isolated killing. And look, I’m a fan of the president. I think the president is showing remarkable
restraint in many areas of foreign policy, but on the idea of who has the power,
>>Congress only wields the power to declare war. Now look, I support President Trump, I support
the way that he has wielded his power as Commander in Chief. I think he’s actually been the most respectful
of all presidents during my lifetime of the commander in chief power. I do think that the people who briefed the
United States Senate today->>And who are they just so people at home-
>>Hello, me wrong, I love Donald Trump. He’s a he’s shown remarkable restraint. He’s so good, I mean, he’s the best. Yeah, you went on an international tour talking
about how amazing Kim Jong Hoon is. And they write each other love letters, and
he’s he should have all the time but he’s a remarkable president. He’s incredible, please, please don’t come
at me. Don’t come at me, Trump. Don’t tweet about me, please.>>What a couple a weenie is?>>Yeah, come on! Just you’re finally sticking up for something. You’re finally making a strong statement that
needs to be said as Republicans, right? You don’t need to qualify it by pretending
like Donald Trump is a rational human being who deserves to lead this country.>>Yeah, I don’t no which is more pathetic. So Rand Paul with his, I’m a fan of him stuff. He’s stood on the debate stage and he made
fun of your hair said you were ugly. We should choose our leaders for their intelligence
experience and all of that stuff. But stop being such a little weenie seriously. This is why you didn’t go anywhere in the
primary. So that’s like a personal thing where you
continue to suck up this guy that MIT like mocked him viciously. It’s the Ted Cruz level of deference. But for Mike Lee, what he wanted to have you
believe is he came out of that briefing, he was just red hot mad at how they wouldn’t
answer any of his questions. And they were clearly hiding things and he
didn’t like how they respond to his hypotheticals. But Trump is great, it’s just that the people
in the briefing, they disappointed me and probably Trump too. Well, who do you think told them what to say? You think that they were like, what were they
backstabbing Trump. Trump was like I want you to go there and
tell good Mike Lee everything he wants to hear. And then they were like screw Trump. We’re not telling them, anything. No, they don’t have anything, if they’re lying
it’s because they’re all lying. But he wants to pretend that I’m pointing
out all out there clearly hoodwinking the American people but Trump’s good. Don’t get mad at him. Doesn’t make any sense?>>It makes no sense. They wanna have their cake and eat it, too.>>Well, they want to have their cake, and
not be kicked out of the Republican party while eating it basically.>>Yeah, that’s what I mean like they want
to hold Trump accountable without really holding Trump accountable. You can’t do that. This started by Donald Trump. This entire escalation is Trump’s fault. Okay, the lack of intelligence that was cited
by Trump is Trump’s fault. The intelligence didn’t exist. He made a unilateral decision, and then he
and his administration tried to make excuses for it or justify it after the fact. That is exactly what happened. They know it, and enabling him in this situation,
enabling him and everything else he’s done as President, right? Enables him to continue acting this way with
no consequences. So if you’re gonna have a backbone and you’re
going to call him out, then do it appropriately, even if it means that you might lose your
political career. Because the whole point of having members
in Congress represent us is to have leaders represent us. Being a leader is not easy. Being a leader doesn’t mean that you do what’s
beneficial for yourself in your career. Being a leader means that you lead, you do
what’s difficult, and you do what’s principled. And Republicans have shown us over and over
again, that while they talk about how strong they are, and how patriotic they are, they
are the biggest powers in this country. Because they will bow down to power if it
means that they get to preserve their precious career.

Fox Host Does The Unthinkable, Defends Obama


>>Brian Kilmeade strangely decided to defend
Barack Obama. Now, this is in response to all the right
wingers who have been blaming Obama for the escalated tensions with Iran. When in reality, as we know, Donald Trump
started escalating tensions with Iran the moment he pulled out of the Iran Nuclear Deal,
started implementing these crippling economic sanctions on Iran. And then he later assassinated Iran’s top
military general. But here’s Brian Kilmeade, speaking out against
all the right wingers who are trying to deflect and place the blame on Obama as opposed to
Trump.>>I just don’t love bringing up the previous
administration, just like I didn’t like when President Obama kept bringing up President
Bush.>>Yeah, but it’s true.>>But it’s how do you know? Well, what I’m trying to say is with President
Bush, you heard that statement all along from President Obama. All was a dumb war, as people who were missing
limbs and no longer can see or missing legs. And here, it’s a dumb war they lost their
limbs in->>Brian, they got 150 billion dollars weapon.>>Well, that’s fine, everybody knows that
policy. But you gotta bring people together as the
president and just to continue to take shots at President Obama-
>>Because I think it’s->>Three and half years later, it doesn’t
make any sense.>>It’s a stupid show.>>Now, understand that Brian Kilmeade was
supportive of Trump’s actions. He defended Trump and his decision to assassinate
Soleimani. And he got into this giant argument with Geraldo
Rivera about it. Geraldo Rivera was critical of what Trump
did. And so he’s not speaking out against what
Trump did, but he is speaking out against people who are blaming Obama for what’s going
on with Iran.>>Yeah, but look, if that was the extent
of it, I would say, look at Brian Kilmeade, able to add a little bit of nuance and in
favor of someone who normally disagrees with him. But everything else he added on to it made
me think no, I don’t actually like this at all.>>I agree, I agree, yeah.>>I mean, look, he came out looking better
than Doocy, that’s a high bar for you right there. But no, he said let’s not bring up past administrations
in some sort of weird general DC. Let’s all be polite and always looking forward,
no analysis of what actually has been done. When he said don’t call a war dumb because
have died and lost limbs, what are you talking about? That’s one of the reasons it was so stupid
and pointless and shouldn’t have been fought. That’s not mocking those who fought in it,
that’s speaking with compassion about the suffering that they went through that shouldn’t
have ever happened. And we don’t say it just because we like judging
past actions. We wanna stop future stupid, pointless wars,
like the one that Brian Kilmeade was, he said, I’m cheering for a couple of days ago when
he was arguing with Geraldo.>>Right.>>I don’t wanna have another argument in
ten years looking back on all the people have died in the US-Iran war. I wanna avoid it altogether.>>That’s the reason why we need to be serious
in electing the right person to lead this country this year. Now with that said, I do wanna go a little
back in time. These are clips from the past week where right
wingers on Fox, on Kilmeade’s very network, decided to place the blame on Obama. Let’s start off with Pete Hegseth.>>Listen, this instant, this moment right
now is on Barack Obama, not Donald Trump. When Barack Obama retreated in Iraq and created
a vacuum, he unleashed two radical forces. First ISIS, which President Trump had to come
in and eradicate, but he also opened the door for Iran’s influence to totally take over
Iraq. To the point where now the legislature in
Iraq is effectively controlled by Iran. If we couldn’t solve the problem in Iraq with
150,000 troops and the right strategy, we’re not gonna do it now with 5,000. So whether we leave Iraq or not should be
done on our terms and based on how we stare down Iran and their ability to get the nuclear
bomb.>>Iraq called on the United States and Iran
to help them defeat ISIS in their country. That’s the reason why the United States sent
troops back to Iraq. That’s the reason why Iran sent its forces
to Iraq in order to help defeat ISIS, and they actually did a pretty good job in that. And so now following Donald Trump’s actions,
in doing a drone strike in Iraq, the parliament in the country decided to take a vote and
they want US troops out. All of the escalation, as of late, is what
Trump is responsible for. There was a perfectly fine nuclear deal. It’s a nuclear deal because it was specifically
meant to prevent Iran from building nuclear weapons.>>And it was working.>>And it was working, they were complying. When he decided to pull out, implement sanctions
and continuously provoke Iran, that’s when things started to get worse.>>Yes.>>So no, this isn’t about Obama, it’s been
three and a half years. What do you mean?>>Yeah, no, it’s not Obama. Actually, I blame Calvin Coolidge. No, I don’t know, we can just keep going back. You know what? It was George W Bush because-
>>And Obama was terrible, by the way.>>If he hadn’t started this war, then we
wouldn’t be there. No, actually it was Clinton because if he’d
taken out Sadam the first time then Bush wouldn’t have had to go in. You could just always keep passing the buck
to the past, it doesn’t mean anything. But that’s what Pete Hegseth does. There’s a couple different brands of horrible
right wing pundit and I would argue that he’s probably the worst. He comes from the Sean Hannity school where
his brain is only large enough for one running algorithm at a time. And it’s, how do I blame a democrat for whatever
it is? Even if it’s a direct predicted result of
a republican action, he’s gonna find a way. He’ll say, it was the democrats fault, throw
a couple of buzzwords out there and that’s it. And so it’s no wonder that he’s doing well
on Fox News. That’s all they need to do.>>That’s right, and there was one other person
on Fox News who wanted to blame Obama. That was Laura Ingraham.>>Whereas, Bush was too idealistic about
what was possible in Iraq, and whereas Obama was too defeatist about Iran, Trump’s a realist. He’s a pragmatist.>>So that’s the stupidity that you hear on
Fox.>>By the way, she was an outspoken advocate
for the war in Iraq.>>100%.>>Just don’t ever forget that, that she was
cheerleading for the war in Iraq. She wants to pretend that that’s not the case. And by the way, she also just coincidentally
wants war with Iran. But it’ll be totally different, it’ll be way
better this time. She’s a realist after all.>>It’s insane. By the way, Vickie, one of our members wrote
in and said, John’s got his energy back with lots of exclamation marks.>>I think I’m at the exact perfect point
of all the medications have lined up, but I am still on a lot of medication.>>And I also wanna announce that he’s starting
to get me sick, so I’m really looking forward to this weekend.>>You can’t prove that. It’s possible, I think Barrack Obama got you
sick, actually.>>It was, you know what, good point, good
point. Become a member, go to tyt.com/join. Members help to make this show happen, you

stories that we do.

What does the killing of Suleimani mean for Europe? l Europe In :60 l GZERO Media


Europe In 60 Seconds. I’m Carl Bildt, in Stockholm. First question: Well, great concern for the consequences for the region. Primarily, apart from the stability of Iraq, what’s going to happen there? It’s a very fragile place. And if that is made into a battleground between the US and Iran, it’s going to be very, very negative for the country and for the region. But then, of course, the fear of a further escalation also between the US and Iran. Almost unavoidable by now. Well, that remains an open question. Europe has been trying to save it, but it takes two to tango. And although there were efforts that were going quite far with President Macron of France and President Trump in connection with the General Assembly, they essentially did not work. Now, I fear that the room for diplomacy is very limited. But European foreign ministers are meeting on Friday, and there is clearly the intention by the new EU leadership to try to do whatever they can do to try to open up some sort of diplomatic space to prevent war and catastrophe.

Megyn Kelly To Kaepernick: “Everything is Racist”


>>Megyn Kelly hasn’t really been out in the
public much lately. But she did decide to respond to Colin Kaepernick’s
tweets about US aggression toward Iran. So first, let me give you what Colin Kaepernick
had tweeted, and then I’ll give you her response. She said, there’s nothing new about American
terrorist attacks against black and brown people for the expansion of American imperialism. America has always sanctioned and besieged
black and brown bodies both at home and abroad. American militarism is the weapon wielded
by American imperialism, to enforce its policing and plundering of the non white world. Now-
>>Yep.>>Anyone who knows anything about American
history and American foreign policy sees what he’s talking about here. This isn’t simply about race. This is about US foreign policy toward countries
that are typically majority black or majority brown, right?>>Yep.>>And why, why do they do that? And I’m gonna fill in those blanks in just
a second. But Megyn Kelly, in her lack of sophisticated
thinking says, because everything is racist. Everything. Even fighting back against terrorists who
kill Americans. Nike, feeling proud? Okay, so if you’re so concerned about terrorists
killing Americans or terrorists killing people that they shouldn’t be killing. How about the fact that Donald Trump defended
Mohammed bin Salman after he ordered the killing of a US resident and Washington Post journalist
Jamal Khashoggi. Didn’t bother you, right? Didn’t bother you. I mean, it’s just such a disingenuous argument. And besides which, Colin Kaepernick is actually
making an important point that isn’t often made by public figures, especially people
in the entertainment industry or in athletics. Colin Kaepernick comments about things that
are so important to shed light on. And US imperialism is incredibly important
to discuss, especially in the context of what the United States is doing in the Middle East
right now. So for anyone who maybe didn’t have, and most
people in America didn’t, the appropriate history lessons about what the US has done
with coups abroad. We’ll do a quick run through of it. And I wish we had more time cuz there’s so
many interesting details to every single one of these examples, but we’re just gonna run
through some of the examples right now. So first off, when it comes to Latin American
countries, our CIA has loved orchestrating coups. We have orchestrated coups in Argentina, Brazil,
Cuba, Chili, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Uruguay, okay? Now, we attempt to stage a coup in Cuba, we
failed there. So we weren’t successful in every single
case, but every single time you see this happen, especially in Latin American countries, there
are US business interests involved, right? It’s not because we’re trying to spread democracy. It’s because there’s some sort of resource
that the United States government wants access to. So we’ve done coups in countries like Iran. So in 1953 there was a coup in Iran. It was orchestrated by the United States. Despite continued speculation about the CIA’s
role in a 1949 coup to install a military government in Syria, the ouster of Iranian
Prime Minister Mohamed Mossadegh is the earliest coup of the Cold War that the United States
government has acknowledged. They’ve acknowledged it, okay? But you don’t hear much of it in US history
classes. In 1953, after nearly two years of Mossadegh’s
premiership, during which he challenged the authority of the Shah and nationalized an
Iranian oil industry previously operated by British companies, he was forced from office
and arrested, spending the rest of his life under house arrest. Did you think that you could just nationalize
your country’s oil and the US would let you get away with it? We don’t think so. Let’s move on. Guatemala, 1954, though the United States
was initially supportive of Guatemalan Guatemalan President Arbenz, the State Department felt
his rise through the US-trained and armed military would be an asset, the relationship
though soured as he attempted a series of land reforms that threatened the holdings
of US-owned United Fruit Company. A coup in 1954 forced him from power, allowing
a succession of juntas in his place. Classified details of the CIA’s involvement
in the ouster of the Guatemalan leader, which included equipping rebels and paramilitary
troops while the US Navy blockaded the Guatemalan coast, came to light in 1999. I mean, the examples go on and on and on. Congo in 1960, what we did to Patrice Lumumba. I mean, how many more examples do you want,
okay?>>I think she doesn’t want any.>>I’m sorry, Lumumba, Lumumba.>>And I would argue she probably doesn’t
care.>>But that’s what I wanna know. Look, Megyn Kelly’s not dumb. I don’t think she’s a dumb person. She’s a lawyer. She worked her way up to pretty lucrative
gigs at Fox News and then I think it was CBS or NBC.>>Well, no offense to us, but being a host
doesn’t necessarily mean you’re a genius.>>No, I get that. I get that.>>She had a public spat about how Santa’s
white. She’s kind of dumb when it comes to racial
stuff.>>You’re right. You’re right. Right.>>To hold these simplistic, stupid, bigoted
views on race you can’t be that intelligent.>>You guys, the United States will go into
countries and overthrow democratically elected leaders. We just did it in Bolivia. We just did it in Bolivia. We will do that. We will go into a sovereign country, overthrow
a democratically elected leader for our own business interests. So when someone draws attention to that because
they want our country to be better, to keep our country safe, to keep sovereign countries
safe and democratic, it’s a dumb ass response to say because everything’s racist.>>Yeah, it’s hard to be Megyn Kelly. When you say bigoted things people call you
a racist, it’s rough.>>That’s the woman who gets paid tens of
millions of dollars to be an idiot, it’s devastating. That’s what this country values.>>She’s so awful that she makes me like Charlize
Theron less.>>No, don’t say that.>>Although Bombshell was pretty good.>>It was okay.>>Yeah, it was fine.>>Charlize Theron is a national treasure.>>She is, exactly.>>Yeah.>>Yeah, she’s as bad as she ever was when
she was on Fox News. She somehow managed as she like pulled the
ripcord, got out of there, to seem more reasonable than someone like a Sean Hannity or Bill O’Reilly,
but she’s not. She was picked for that position because she
believes the same sorts of things that they do.>>I want to give some snaps to Colin Kaepernick
because what he was drawing attention to there is important. And a lot of people in America never get the
appropriate schooling or learn the appropriate history of what our country has done. And you need to understand the history to
really dissect and understand what our current foreign policy is. We should be able to hold our elected officials
to a higher standard, and we should not allow them to sell us this nonsense about how the
US government is looking to spread democracy abroad. When in reality, we’ve done a lot to undermine
democracy in other countries consistently over the decades.

Trump: I Fired John Bolton; Bolton: I RESIGNED!


so in what was completely predictable news
from day one, Donald Trump claims to have fired his third national security advisor or Radek
pro war maniac chicken hawk, John Bolton. And when I say claims to a fireman, I say
that because Bolton is claiming that he wasn’t fired, but he actually resigned in Donald
Trump. Only later announced it as a firing in order
to save face, which would not be a non-common move for Donald Trump. Here’s the story. First, as per Trump presented obviously on
Twitter where Donald Donald Trump tweeted yesterday, I informed John Bolton last night
that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions
as did others in the administration and therefore I asked John for his resignation, which was
given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new national security advisor
next week. Now on the other hand, John Bolton’s take
on it is different. John Bolton tweeting quote, I offered to resign
last night and president Trump said, let’s talk about it tomorrow. So this disagreement about whether it was
a firing or a resignation is not an uncommon one in diplomatic circles and an administrations
that are riddled with controversy and farcical, uh, a positions being held open for long periods
of time and a revolving door cast of characters. But there are close to like a dozen different
and accurate reactions that we could have to this because there are so many different
kind of layers to the John Bolton, Donald Trump relationship. First obviously from day one, just knowing
Trump’s personality and knowing John Bolton’s personality, it was completely predictable
that the combination of Trump and Bolton was never going to work longterm. And in some senses it’s a shock that it worked
as long as it did to the extent that it did and it doesn’t appear to have been working
very well. Secondly, Bolton was a terrible choice on
policy from the get go. So there are ways in which Bolton out isn’t
bad per se, but as usual with Donald Trump, an empty position can be bad because it allows
Donald Trump to do whatever the hell he wants with no or very little push back. Very often when Donald Trump gets rid of someone
who is bad, uh, they end up being replaced with someone that is even worse. So in that sense, it’s kind of a delicate
and complicated situation. Now, number three is the broader theme here,
which is the chaos in the Trump administration at the highest levels. Donald Trump will soon be if he actually does
select someone next week as you claims that he’s going to, Trump will be on his fourth
national security advisor in his first term. And there’s also a really good chance that
the position ends up unfilled for a long period of time, which has been another trend and
theme of the Trump administration. So if we were to zoom out, the theme or trend
is incompetent people either in way over their heads or just terrible people on policy pushed
into positions where they don’t get along with Trump. Ultimately fired or resign a constant revolving
door of incompetent, unqualified or otherwise terrible people for jobs. And or that being, uh, happening in conjunction
with positions just being empty for long periods of time, which is also a terrible thing in
a number of different ways, which we’ve discussed now. Number four, maybe the most immediate question
in terms of, of impact in the short term, which is what does John Bolton’s departure
mean in terms of the possibility of a specific military engagement or war somewhere on planet
earth? Because instinct is not incorrect in that
Balt Bolton is a warmonger who very likely could have, have been pushing Donald Trump
towards war, uh, in a lot of different places. And now that Bolton is gone, is Donald Trump
less likely to get involved in certain conflicts? Maybe, but it’s not nearly that simple. It could merely be that Donald Trump will
want to do different military engagements than John Bolton would have wanted. When you look at the actual areas of conflict
and disagreement between Donald Trump and John Bolton, it’s all potentially worse without
Bolton, which is scary to say, but maybe not. I mean, I, I’m not speaking rhetorically here. Uh, who to negotiate with was something that
Donald Trump and John Bolton didn’t agree with. There was a split that developed between Bolton
on one side and Palm Peo and Trump on the other side when it comes to who should we
be negotiating with and who should we not be negotiating with? Bolton was skeptical about Donald Trump’s
approach to North Korea, which is logical on the one hand because Donald Trump’s approach
to North Korea has been a joke, uh, where Trump has gotten absolutely nothing but thinks
that he’s won something major. Meanwhile, Kim Jong UN continues to pull the
wool over Trump’s eyes. But just because Bolton disagreed with Trump’s
terrible take on North Korea doesn’t mean that Bolton’s would have been better. Bolton’s might’ve been let’s bomb a people. Let’s start getting even more aggressive with
North Korea. Bolton said, don’t pull troops from Syria,
which, I mean, this is crazy. I would love to get our troops out of Syria. But the way in which Trump did it completely
haphazardly, not as part of any kind of broader plan was also terrible. So like, where are we better off with Bolton
on Syria or are we better off without bolting on Syria? I don’t know the answer. Disagreements about whether to try to meet
with Iran. Uh, so what’s completely outrageous about
the situation in which we find ourselves is that Bolton’s ideas on most foreign policy
issues are horribly backwards, but he was fighting against Trump whose ideas and implementation
of those ideas is often just as backwards or even more in slightly different ways than
John Bolton represented it. It’s unclear who we are. Worse off with Donald Trump or Bolton when
it comes to national security, which is a stunning 2019 to be living in. I want to be clear, I’m not defending Bolton. I think the guy is one of the worst chicken
hawks who, uh, you know, he, I actually understand why he avoided going to Vietnam. I would have done the same thing if I was
potentially draftable at the time, but he was talking about how, uh, it was a, you know,
something he wanted to do, even though he believed that it was lost. He was one of the big advocates for all sorts
of military engagements despite having himself gotten out of them. And again, I, I don’t, I understand why one
would do that, but this is not the type of guy you want making national security decisions. Bolton was one of the primary people involved
in the neo-con plan to invade Iraq twice, sold the idea to George W. Bush. I mean truly, truly terrible, and yet he at
least understands a few more things than Donald Trump and may have been slightly less bad
on some issues. It’s a really perplexing geopolitical sort
of status quo or circumstance these days. Who wants to set the over under, by the way,
on how long this position stays open. Donald Trump said next week he would be selecting
his fourth national security advisor in his first term. Do we believe that? Do we believe that that person is going to
have a fighting chance of actually being confirmed to the position? I don’t know. I guess we’ll know in about a week’s time. Let me know what you think.

Republican Senators Revolt Against Trump



with ever heightening tensions between the u.s. and Iran it is very important given our president's attitude toward the world that there be checks on the president's power and so there have been attempts to try to rein that in one of the most recent attempts was an unamended that just went before the Senate today where it did receive the majority of the votes to check the president's power unfortunately in this country that's not enough for it to actually happen the measure as it's written about in the Washington Post a proposed amendment to the annual defense bill would have needed 60 votes to be included in the 750 billion dollar authorization Senators past Thursday the vote was fifty to forty with four Republicans joining Democrats to support the measure senators Jerry Moran of Kansas Susan Collins of Maine Mike Lee of Utah and Rand Paul all voted to rein the President's powers and but it needed 60 votes to pass so it did not there were 10 no-shows and we're just going to show you the people who didn't show up so and that's for various reasons but Democrat Chris Coons and nine Republicans Blackburn of Tennessee Blunt of Missouri Brown of Indiana burr of North Carolina Kevin Cramer of North Dakota Inhofe of Oklahoma Pat Roberts of Kansas Mike rounds of South Dakota and Rick Scott of Florida you would think just after that shows she put on in Tennessee that Marsha Blackburn would always be there for every vote right I mean she was not there for this vote went against the Swifties she was you know Taylor Swift is just so people don't know yeah does she win it so from Taylor Swift here let's impending nuclear war so I mean the story of people flying back from Miami in order to make the votes today was kind of fascinating like Gillibrand Harris they all flew back in order to get counted in this vote but made them what what's riding on something yeah so this was an opportunity to stymie his recklessness the as my father says the sanctions and chief president that we have who also promised his base that no more Wars would happen but here's the trick of the draw that people don't identify when they're looking at congressional declaration of or have the Congress having power to declare war is that we the US government has redefined the terms of war so they'll call something like this military engagements and they do so in this bill that was voted down they don't say that they would stop war they would stop military operations or put a check that Congress needs to declare it and so actually this could have been an opportunity to do that and now you get more of a cart launch and I just want to kind of go back to this idea of war and military operations because it's what allowed us to skate through so many wars you don't know when the last time Congress actually declared war oh my god it was a bit before Vietnam Korea 1942 Hungary Romania and is it Romania I think it was world war two it was World War three and Romania and before that they declared like ten eleven Wars and then anything after that Korea Vietnam Persian Gulf all of that was executive branch right and they passed it through by calling it things like sustained counterterrorism strategy targeted action extended systematic campaigns and so you know another favorite is what they call this extended military engagement right extended military engagement which is a fancy way of saying well I heard police action before right but this is this is going to this would be a military strike against a nation right they're trying to find ways around it it seems very obvious to me when they're like well the Revolutionary Guard is technically a terrorist organization that's our end right right because we know that what's frustrating to me is it's all baked like the most recent iteration what you're talking about is the war on terror and they're trying to find a way to to use the war on terror this kind of concept of Muslims do it oh wow Iran is a Muslim nation oh I think I did enough math to forget it by my people in America but they've always been doing this shifting of the bull's eye right so it goes from like al-qaeda and then they came up with a terrorist group in Iran called Hosur on which was a wheat in a city in Iran so they said that that was a scary group and then they said clearly Isis or ISIL or whatever you want to call it and then the that's that was the fear for me about the war on terror and the Bush presidency was that it really like I said give a carte blanche to any military campaign action abroad to be justified as a protection against terrorism that would hit us right and as we know most of the terrorism in that region affects people in that region it doesn't affect us it's very rare that something comes our way but also the Bush presidency expanded the power of the executive branch extensively and so I think that's what we have to contend with is he's operating in that presidency so the horror of Trump is only expounded by the fact that he's been positioned through other administrations to have his reckless behavior you know an open door policy on it yeah so here's how Mitch McConnell who he's so graciously allowed this vote to even take place praise be here's how he characterized it take a look number one nobody's advocating going to war with Iran not the president not Secretary of State none of the generals no one so I'll be opposing the Udall amendment we're not opposed to having the vote and we are working on having that vote passing NDAA and doing the Supplemental as I said earlier all this week and you know I don't think it's good for this country to see the Iranians observing us arguing over all this either so my hope is that it will be defeated we'll find out about how much of a margin but we we hope to defeat it it's simply not required under this set of circumcised and what a fearless leader but that's such a weird position to be like I you know I'm allowing this to take place and basically saying you know the president is not I don't want a war in Iran but I'm going to just leave the door open to extended engagements and willy-nilly declarations of non war by the president I just want to add to I think people don't understand that sanctions and especially our sanctions are also a declaration of war on people right it might not be directly in terms of a military campaign but people feel that people are dying from sanctions and they had been in in Iraq 1 over 1 million people died from our sanctions and putting sanctions on Iran will also do that so we whether we like it or not are in war with Iran and some degree of it that we might not recognize yeah and it's just so frustrating that all the trappings of the previous administration that started stuff like this with ways that were professed to be one way but turned out to be another it's Bolton and pump and Bolton and she's there yeah and that same group of folks is behind it all and it's not even doing us the courtesy of changing up their tactics that they did that you know at least tell me it's different I do want to say that now that it's voted down the house will have an opportunity to put something like this forward it will likely pass in the house because the Democrats by-and-large voted for this I do want to say like people like Rand Paul's were like I don't want to be fighting anybody did get it get involved and that's I think that's where there is some some give-and-take to be had plus 10 senators at least didn't vote no they just didn't show up as we said Tim Kaine who co-authored the Senate's Iran amendment surmised that it stood a good chance of being included in the final product because of the fact that we did get a majority in the Senate and we're going to get a strong vote in the house so gone but not forgotten but then they voted I mean with similar situations they Roe kana and Bernie Sanders voted to stop you know spearheaded the effort to stop involvement in Yemen passed passed vetoed two easy ways for the Young Turks want us hit to subscribe down below than your TYT subscriber and second is ring the bell and when you do that on YouTube you

Democrats grills Trump official on Iran: ‘Does the president have the power to declare war?’



Under our constitution, does
the president have the power to declare war? – I think this is a discussion again …
– It's not a trick question. – Under our constitution, does
the president have the power to declare war? It's just
a yes or no. – Um, we are …
– OK. Alright. Let me make it really
easy for you: Under the constitution, Congress
has the power to declare war, correct? It's not a trick question, sir.
Have you read the constitution? We will do everything we are
required to do. – Mr Hook, have you read
the constitution? – I have read the constitution.
– OK. Under the constitution the Framers gave Congress the
power to declare a war, correct? Just a yes or no. – This is, my understanding is
that we're here to talk about Iran foreign policy, which
I can do. This is a separate hearing – Under the constitution, the
framers gave Congress – On war powers, I believe
you should have – Mr chair, Mr chair, I'm
gonna stop this line of questioning. I'm gonna submit the
US constitution for the record. – Based on the authorities
that you have now, what is the power of
this administration? Are they subject to
the War Powers Act? – I'm not a War Powers
Act scholar, I can only tell you that everything we would do
would be lawful and everything we are
trying to do now is defensive. Let me underline,
there is no talk of offensive action. We are trying to, it's a defensive
move that we have made. – I understand. It's not the
position of the administration that the 2001, and we talked
about this earlier, that the 2001 authorisation
to use military force against those who carried out
9/11 would authorise a war against Iran, correct? – I'm not a scholar in this area.
– Do you take the, did the islamic republic
bomb us on 9/11. – Did the islamic republic
bomb us on … – Did the islamic republic,
one of the entities responsible for the deaths on 9/11. – No. No one should be uncertain
about our desire for peace, or our readiness to normalise
relations, should we reach a comprehensive deal. We have out the possibility
of a much brighter future on the table for the Iranian
people and we mean it.

"Bomb the Hell Out of Them" – Media & Politicians On Iran



measured President Trump does not want war he said so clearly during the campaign not interested in another you know years and years long international entanglement I don't expect one but in coming days we will know if the mullahs are smart enough to take the opportunity which is a small window it may not even exist within five minutes because if they don't the president will have no choice he will bomb the hell out of them no need for long protracted boots on the ground kind of war we have the greatest military thank God on the face of this earth we have the most advanced weapon systems and a strong message needs to be sent that a huge price will be paid if you take on the United States of America simple peace through strength and it works my strong opinion it is impaired what it is

before Donald Trump decided to pull back at the last minute supposedly when he was cocked and loaded only pulled back once he figured he would kill 150 Iranians he has many friends he has many many Iranian friends he says very nice people this is a Sean Hannity's call his pitch for the military-industrial complex just shows he's a shell for the m.i.c talking about again our weapons up-to-speed paradigm that we as a country develop what I call the next generation of military weaponry we have learned from Vietnam we have learned from Iraq and Afghanistan sadly wars we get involved in quickly become politicized they do not end as they should with complete victory we don't want our kids going door to door like they did in Iraq and then having Democrats saying oh come home and then being told nevermind we didn't mean it America needs the single most advanced weaponry for all future conflicts I'd much prefer we devastate our enemies from Tampa Florida that generation of weaponry is something we need to advance as a country quick god I just have to say he says devastate our enemies that's talking as if Iran is our enemy and we've been talking like this since at least 1987 we've been on the brink of war with Iran they've supposedly taunted us and we supposedly were cocked and loaded supposedly never decided to pull the trigger I'm gonna play you some old clips of our favorite maniac John McCain may he rest in hell I'm talking about bombing Iran bomb bomb bomb bomb bomb Iran since the beginning of time I'm gonna get it clip from Liz Cheney to Dick Cheney's daughters see if what she has to say is any more predictable there I'll play the rest of this clip he's talking about upgrading our military so we can destroy our enemies from the comfort of home quickly and expeditiously thankfully tonight we are in a new era the weak thing all right all right so there you go Sean Hannity always Cheerilee in for Donald Trump I think in this case he was thinking that the strike might actually happen that night says we're gonna bomb the hell out of them unlike Obama didn't have the guts you know this is all about Israel right that actually for some reason it's not some reason it's not Israel who's about to go to war with Iran because Israel is under threat its Israel is under threat so we have to go to work the rot for some reason we even though we paid 3.8 billion dollars a year for the Israelis to buy United States weapons build up their militaries that they can theoretically protect themselves they could go ahead and bomb you know they could go ahead and bomb Iran which doesn't have to be us but but now Lindsey Graham will tell you what's up but first let me just tell you there is an alternate opinion from Fox News and that's Tucker Carlson he basically has been killing it I'm just going to play a little clip about what he said about John Bolton then he pulled a clip of john bolton in 2017 saying this was going to happen Donald Trump to his credit says John Bolton is a hawk says he disagrees with him basically while he was waiting for his chopper out of the White House he had a little press conference today we watched anyway here's Tucker Carlson on John Bolton Fox and all that really happy about it that's demented normal people don't talk like that there's nothing normal about John Bolton check out this piece of tape recently uncovered in which Bolton promises that we're going to overthrow the government of Iran keep in mind that this was filmed long before the Iranians shot down a single drone I have said for over 10 years since coming to these events that the declared policy of the United States of America should be the overthrow of the mullahs regime in Tehran and that's why before 2019 we here will celebrate in Tehran thank you very much this has been a plan for a long time right it was originally on the seven nations we were gonna overthrow five years this is him speaking at a free Iran conference with a bunch of dissident Iranians who live in America now most likely want to see the overthrow of the of the regime there John Bolton hasn't been shy about it he says yeah that's our declared policy our declared policy is to overthrow the government in Iran and in 2019 John Bolton and the rest of these lunatics are gonna meet in Tehran and celebrate the replacement of that regime that's John Bolton for you that's Tucker Carlson calling it out on the same network i I wish I had a simple narrative for you guys today it would be easier to title this bomb the Hallett of Iran media war drums going off etc but it really isn't that simple you know Donald Trump first of all is an on the the same isn't messaging the same as job Bolton and Mike Pompeo are right now he's messaging as if he really really genuinely doesn't want to kill people right now and genuinely is willing to negotiate and stuff and then some of the papers some of the papers that normally cheered on the war the cheered under the war to Iraq they're actually being skeptical they're actually saying the president did a good thing believe it or not by not pulling the trigger when he was cocked and loaded I'll get into that but first Lindsey Graham as bad as John McCain and I'm gonna get you some classic John McCain to Lindsey Graham is if this guy never seen a battlefield in his life just couldn't give a shit psychopath here's what we're going to do here's what he thinks we should do if Iran even bombs tankers again as if they bomb takers before what is what's the my red line is if there's any more disruption of shipping in the Straits of Hormuz linked to Iran take out their Navy bomb their refineries if there's any more attack on American interest go after the Iranians so they'll pay pain they'll they'll feel pain I'm not talk about invading Iran I'm not talking about a land invasion if they go back into the enrichment business at a level that will lead to a nuclear weapon we need to sit down with Israel and other a lot of allies and come up with a way to stop Newton's first of all come up with a way to stop them and undoubtedly they say it doesn't include boots on the ground sink their Navy bomb their refineries if there's another false flag in the Gulf their sink literally sink their Navy bombed their refineries no joke and why are we doing that Lindsey Graham friend to AIPAC friend to Kufa Christians United for Israel it was lit was kind of almost every other word out of his mouth was Israel during this clip this is from Lindsey Graham on Fox News everything's from Fox News today I'll play this clip remember this if you remember nothing else about this interview remember this Israel is not going to allow the Ayatollah to enrich uranium in a fashion that will lead to a nuclear weapon to destroy the State of Israel nor should they that's what's about to happen in the next 10 days we're headed to a conflict here between the Ayatollah who was a murderer snug Israel and maybe the United States and the rest of the world within 10 days if they do what they say they're going to do I know Bibi very well he is not going to sit on the sidelines and let the second Holocaust be set it's not going to happen all right did you guys hear that this is pretty shocking actually that's him with Bret Baier I think is his name within 10 days there's going to be a war if Iran says what there does what they say they're going to do which is enrich more uranium than they're originally supposed to under the nuclear deal which we of course withdrew from so we have no mechanism basically to enforce the old nuclear deal because of course we pulled out the old nuclear deal which was enforceable which did prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons we pulled out of and now Europe isn't standing by their end of the deal either so Iran basically is saying hey why if you guys aren't going to stand by your end of the deal and ease up on sanctions keep buying our oil and keep buying our stuff then what the eff are we doing not not developing nuclear weapons if we feel like it or not developing more nuclear fuel if we feel like it so they say after you guys we're gonna go ahead and do it and if you want to stop us I guess come in and bomb us but we're gonna f you up which is why they shot down the drone just say hey we're serious you know we have weapons that'll take your shit out basically it's hard to take out one of those drones of 55,000 60,000 feet it takes pretty advanced weaponry so they showed it they showed it off a little bit by shooting down that drone you know they're just letting the US know they mean business if we try to sink their Navy I mean they have a lot of rockets pointed at our army bases and stuff in the region they can do quite a bit of damage quite a bit of damage and actually that's why one news reporter I'll just give you another I'll give this to you kind of out of order but this is a national security analyst for CNN by the way says calling off the strikes was the right thing to do from a security perspective striking Iranian assets because of their downing of a drone would not have been proportional and it would have put thousands of Americans if not more at risk that's the trouble we can go in there and kill 150 people but then they can turn around and try to sink our Navy sink our aircraft carrier you know and then where are we World War 3 it's basically what Lindsey Graham says it's why the news on Iran is important he says that within 10 days US Israel Iran and maybe the whole world will be at war because of our stance on Iran Liz Cheney Dick Cheney's daughter was on the Hugh Hewitt show she had to give some grit she of course all these people that will never go to war whose children will never go to war and never have to worry about the consequences themselves are more than happy to say things that end up with tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people dying and maybe nuclear bombs going off and the end of the world basically more than happy to march us in to the end of the world not too surprising from someone like Liz Cheney so let me see I oh I didn't mark her clip but I think it starts right here Liz Cheney I you know we simply can't allow America's adversaries to think that they can shoot down a US military drone with impunity or you know with the consequence as we're seeing in reports being that you know the United States responds by by pleading for talks I think that you know it's crucially important that the Iranians recognized that this kind of behavior is not something that will be tolerated and I would also point out that our other adversaries around the world are watching and you know we saw the damage that was done by Barack Obama when he announced a red line and then failed to enforce it we had the growth the rise of Isis we had Isis spread across the Middle East that's ridiculous I only wanted I didn't need to play that whole thing adversaries around the world of watch and they basically say oh if we don't bomb them then wait to see what North Korea is gonna do next that's one of the refrains if we don't bomb around right now do what we say we were gonna do then the next thing that's gonna happen is Kim jong-un it's gonna start launching missiles and they know the US isn't serious and that Trump is a pussy because he's not bombing them and that's gonna show that he's a pussy and everybody's gonna know that and they're gonna know America is that I know that word might be offensive to some people I'm just saying people understand what it means that's a that's what people are implying about Donald Trump right now is that if he does not respond Lindsey Graham says the same thing if he doesn't respond like we've threatened to then we're not serious and nobody's ever gonna take us seriously again I'm gonna now that's Liz Cheney that's Lindsey Graham there are others like that and in politics but this isn't all bad news it's not a simple narrative Business Insider says Trump made the right call by not pulling the trigger on Iran after it shot down a US drone former officials say Washington Post is reporting war we war weary Republicans and Democrats express relief after Trump calls off strike on Iran New York Times still gives Trump a hard time but says the last minute calling off of military action is the first wise decision on Iran the president has taken so the press in this case is not on a full march to war like they were during Arak you have opinion pieces coming out in the major CIA publications even that are saying he made the right move so we are in a different time right now than we were when we started the war to Iraq a way different time when way more people are anti-war because we've already been at war for the last 20 years we didn't just have anything happen like 9/11 that's making people upset and making them feel like we have to go to war right now it's different different time if we do it if we really were that close and that's not just a sort of mind game with Iran if we really were that close god help us thank God for Donald Trump I guess if we really were that close and he decided on his own to cancel you know just glad it's not Hillary Clinton I I'm no I'm no fan of Donald Trump constant critic in fact but I'm happy he's in there to stop us from going to war with Iran if that's if we can take him out his word so not everybody sure if we can take him at his word or if it's all just a game now we're gonna go end up going to war anyway but it's not the first time we've been on the brink of war with Iran one of the most popular war hawks in iran besides what Lindsey Graham was his friend John McCain and this is a some old clips of John McCain in this video which includes the bomb the famous bomber Ron clip but take a listen to some of those on and on of the threats that we have that we have made to the Iranians and so far no action George Shultz my favorite Secretary of State in all the world once said this marine drill instructor told him never point a gun at somebody unless you're well tread E to pull a trigger we keep pointing the gun we haven't pulled a single trigger yet and it's about time that we did and how appropriate that we were cocked and loaded this time as Donald Trump said and we didn't pull the trigger right it's exactly what John McCain was complaining mm that's pretty clear I said he said we caught the Iranians red-handed at this point not only had we warned them as far as what actions would we would view as acts of belligerency but one of the oldest rules of war at least in this century is it's illegal and an act of war to lay mines and international waters the president I guess my question is how many times do we have to prove that these people are blowing up people now never mind if they get a nuclear weapon when do we send them an airmail message to tear out their own Beach Boys song bomber and classic classic it's been going on for a long time hopefully it stretches out a little bit longer not to say that I like the sanctions because I think we're already at war with Iran with what we're doing to them sanctions are an act of war economic sanctions are an act of war people die because of that people don't get needed medication they don't have enough food and their economy crashes that is an act of war so if Iran wanted to respond by shooting down one of our planes you know not to say it's a good thing but I understand right I understand so I wanted to give you guys the media reaction I
