  1. We the people aren't buying this anymore, false flag false flag warhawk pompeoand Bolton should send their kids over to fight for this phony war that they are pushing.

  2. Republicans truly are criminals & they have no problem doing it in the the open. If Hillary said that you know how immature Trump and his base would react. Trump and his base are all treasonous criminals. Nothing they say can prove them not to be treasonous criminals. They voted for someone they heard till China and WikiLeaks to hack the United States of America on camera. Then call it fake news. Any psychiatrist or therapist know the mental condition they have.

  3. The White House is accusing Iran a bombing this ship, we American people are blaming pompeo Fulton and the Pentagon 4 bombing this ship…

  4. Since 9-11 at least, almost NO ONE can trust the main stream media. So, I don't buy their claims on this. It could easily be the Mossad again. False flag IS THEIR SPECIALTY.

  5. You just know Marvel is breathing a sigh of relief that they kicked Cuba Gooding Jr out of the MCU. I know their reasons wasn't for sexual assault, but a bullet dodged is a bullet dodged.

  6. If Nancy Pelosi and her scum bag friends didn't do anything wrong then they wouldn't have anything to worry about. And people should ask themselves what are these people afraid of coming out?

  7. So they expect him to give information to the SAME f.b.i. that just spent the last 3 years trying to screw him 6 ways to sunday, as shumer put it ??????????    These people are a real pieces of work folks……   When are dumbasses like buticooti going to figure out that this is a REPUBLIC………………… NOT a damned democracy………

  8. Some of these people of color claiming systematic racism , can learn from this girl born with no hands.

  9. America's at it once again. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/oil-tanker-attacks-gulf-of-oman-tanker-owner-seems-to-dispute-us-account-of-gulf-of-oman-attack-today-2019-06-14/?ftag=COS-05-10aaa0h&utm_campaign=trueAnthem%3A+New+Content+%28Feed%29&utm_content=5d036cc8175a6c0001981187&utm_medium=trueAnthem&utm_source=facebook&fbclid=IwAR0s3Yh-pWlzP7tMpqvQ1ct-UfHQfM5N2LFH0kMcsTPAHk9kE4yPfK4ueEs

  10. HOW MANY TIMES WILL THESE DEVILS LIE JUST TO GO TO WAR.IRAQ W.M.D S LIIIIIEEEEE! LIBYA KILLED GHADDAFFI LIED ON HIM AND SAID HE WAS DOING HARM TO HIS PPL. GO OUT OF HERE YOU DEVILS…

  11. This is like the bay of Tonkin. Believe not these reports from nbc.
    I’m so glad I no longer watch television. I don’t miss the lies and the drug commercials. WBAI is my station for the truth. I donate money to hear the truth. Shame on you. So corrupt from your sponsors.

  12. Leave Iran alone we all know what you're doing! Not Iraq, Afghanistan, Libia, Columbia.. STOP BEING NAZIS!!

  13. AND WHY IS THE AMERICAN CITIZENS SITTING DOWN AND NOT ON THE STREETS DEMONSTRATING CONSTANTLY AGAINST TRUMP CREATING A PRETEXT TO ATTACK IRAN TO START A WAR UNDER VERY DUBIOUS, CRIMINAL AND FALSE PRETENCE????? TRUMP IS SENDING AMERICA'S YOUTH. MEN AND WOMEN INTO A WAR WHICH IS NOT NECESSARY FOR AMERICA'S EXISTENCE.

  14. Israel is pushing this War with Iran making United States go into War by attacking tankers. Netanyahu is one evil man I can never trust him and he does not care about American serviceman/Women end of the day only American People will Die in a War fighting for Netanyahu.

  15. Two Great men on here Mayor Pete of South Bend and Jason Cander , A majority of people don't even realize they have it and suffer with it daily. Great to see someone say Hey… I've bn suffering with this and has received help., Maybe he can continue his run in the future. And Mayor Pete is so right on with his way of thinking, his ideas. Right on Gentlemen.

  16. Leave the Middle East alone, we don’t need their Oil, we don’t need their Camels, and we certainly don’t need Iran.
    USA should just butt out and leave the Israelis to take care of the Middle East., Two Major Wars have proved the Israelis are more than capable. Just provide the weapons that’s all they need.

  17. NOAA IMPROVING The way they forecast…..Gee….I WONDER WHY NOW⁉️ could it be…because our WEATHER BECOMING MORE DEADLY ⁉️
    WHY IS OUR WEATHER GETTING MORE DEADLY⁉️That’s The QUESTION I WOULD LIKE AN ANSWER To‼️😰
    DO THEY KNOW SOMETHING WE DON’T⁉️
    OUR GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO HAVE PROOF WHO HIT THE TANKERS‼️ NOT ASSUME‼️

  18. I just watched this because l need to be informed about the bs narrative being pushed.The vaccines being pushed ; the thing left unreported was the outbreaks in the illegal camps.These diseases are coming from the south.

  19. Jessica Biel wants to maintain the patient/doctor relationship and not make our kids wardens of the state and the media comes down on her as anti-vaxx. What's wrong with the media? They can't even get a simple story right.

  20. We are a Republic. Not a democracy Repeal of the electoral college would make Indiana's vote no longer count

  21. The first time, Saudi tankers, but not secondary explosion (not dramatic enough), this time there are no Saudi tankers, just BOOM!

  22. The Saudis paid in advance for this war, Trump and the GOP need this thing to come out as soon as possible!!!

  23. You watch, they'll be five or six more burning in the straight by Monday morning. Meanwhile, we make rain drops in Iowa.

  24. You can bet that if Hill said no to voting for Biden this would not be aired. Andrea Mitchell is an ahole

  25. Why are people so freaked out about Measles and chicken pox? I remember when I was a kid there were moms that room there kids to play with kids that had them so there kids would catch them. They were sick for a few days and then they got over them. It wasn’t a big deal but now the world is terrified to catch them.

  26. As much as I absolutely distrust Irans government and wouldn't put much past them (government, not the Iranian people! I have met some great people and some A-holes from Iran. It is a country like any other, filled with both good and bad people), I still would never put it past trump to have staged the attack himself just to get his way. He already proved he is more than willing to even hold hostage his own country just to get his way (ie; to increase his bankruptcy account).

    And you have to wonder why are the Saudi's refusing to release any details of the attack? If it was Iran, then it's in their best interest to release the details, the only reason they would refuse, is if donnie was a liar…

    This smells like one of trumplettes tax-evasion/draft-doging/Mueller-report-evidence-hiding type of avoidance strategies.*

    I'm not saying this is what happened though, only that until they actually release some facts (and I doubt they ever will), it is factually up in the air as to what really happened. Otherwise, you are asking me to trust someone who has been proven to lie on the average of a dozen times per day. No thank you. I'd rather hear what someone who actually understands that the word "fact" does not mean the same thing as the word "greed".

    TL:DR If you consider things like data and facts, there is a 91% chance that trump is lying.

  27. DONT LIE TO THE USA AGAIN ! We don’t WANT ANOTHER WAR ESPECIALLY WITH IRAN!!! THIS IS OBVIOUSLY SET UP TO POINT A FINGER IRAN VERY SAD CIA REMEMBER THE GOLD OF TONKIN? Started Vietnam countless others

  28. If Arkansas chooses her as their Governor, then that will prove everything we think about Arkansas! 🙄 Also, I could be about Biden/Buttigieg for 2020.

  29. He literally said what Hillary Clinton did and it is okay for the Democrats that Clinton did it but Trump mocks them and says it and they go crazy. Trump said it just to make them go crazy. He knows exactly how to trigger them.

    As far as Creepy Joe I don't see how anyone could vote for him. There is videos of this creepy man that can't keep his hands off children. Jesus people…. Little children. He makes me wonder if pizza gate might just be real!

  30. So, let me get this straight:

    Japanese oil tankers attacked while the Japanese prime minister was visiting the Iranian supreme leader, because they're allies.

    Trump says there were bombs stuck to the side of the ships. An interview with the ships crews, who were on the ships, are saying they saw flying objects which were responsible for the explosions?

    Trump says the proof is in some super grainy video of some dudes taking a "bomb" off the side of the boat that "was faulty".

    Huh. Sounds legit. 😒😒😒🙄🙄🙄😒😒😒

    I'm happy nobody was hurt.

  31. False flag. Why would THEY do it… Who actually profits from blaming them. Look at the one who is placing the blame then it may be the ones guilty. When it gives a reason for economic or military action. That's the reason to question who did what

  32. Lets demonize Iran for standing up to UN(Bankers for enslaving all) and Israeli(Zionists for enslaving all).

  34. When Trump lies about everything nobody will believe him when tells the truth..

    It’s call lack of credibility

  35. So Cuba Gooding Jr has to do a perp walk after he turns himself in but sexual predators like Trump get away with the same crimes???

  36. Breaking new I caught better UFO images then the Iran shipping attach from military drone video footage, how convenient the drone was filming the exact moment that was happening…… ahahhahahahahahahhahhah breaking news ahahahahahahaha

  37. LOL IM A PIRATE OF THE SEAS AND I BLAME ISRAHELL AND USA FOR THE MISSLE SHOT AT OIL TANKERS …….called FALSE FLAGS

  38. I believe that Iran did it…They want to poke at the US. RUSSIA and Iran are always antagonizing "THE BIG BULLY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD ". They ALL want war to expose THE US as weak and knock them off their throne. Guess who's next? Jerusalem!

  39. According to legend, the US will one day have a peaceful president that fights for a prosperous future instead of a doomed present. Some day…some day

  40. I witnessed 2 false flag attacks in my life flight 800 and WTC 911 . This is a false flag event to draw America into war . The Zionists that control the federal reserve bank dictate wars were in

  41. God help us! With Trump at the helm, it won't turn out good. Mike Pompeo is just his Lackey. No help there.

  42. 1:29 "US WARSHIPS RACING TO RENDER AID". LOL!! Why did the USA all mighty powerful Military WARSHIPS NOT RACE to intercept and seize that craft????

  43. I hate how the US wants to be in every corner of the world “patrolling”, yet when Russia or other country is in The Western Hemisphere, the US goes into a tailspin. The US needs to stop acting superior to other countries because it is NOT. They need to stay on their side of the world despite their “interests”. Let Iran do business, like the US does business, nobody sanctions the US because of their war criminalities.

  44. Trump's Attempt to stay in office by Creating Enemies around the world. And The Military Industrial Complex, attempting to bolster weapons Sales and manufacturing. Tompkin / NORTHWOODS old strategies reborn.

  45. Why are dems crying treason about Trumps comments about accepting dirt from a foreign entity, when thats EXACTLY what hilary did with the Steel dossier???

  46. They forgot to mention the largest cases of measles came from the Jewish community in Brooklyn, NY. Those who traveled to Israel a few months ago. They're not saying it because NBC is owned by a Jew.

  47. Don't you think the USA should finish up it's current wars first. How's it going with Afghanistan? And Iran with it's powerful allies is going to be a piece of cake? Don't count on any help. Doubt even Great Britain will be so foolish this time. Better pre-order lots of coffins with USA flags draped over them.

  48. HEY BUTTIGIEG, OR HOWEVER THE DUMB NAME IS SPELLED, WHATEVER, LOL, AMERICA IS A REPUBLIC!!!!!! NOT A DEMOCRACY!!!!!!

  49. Feel bad for anyone who had to join the military due to economic reasons since 2016.
    So many joined for patriotic reasons since 9/11.
    Wonder how many have decided to retire earlier than they originally planned recently.
    I wouldn't want to go fight a BS war in Iran just to sell more weapons. War is also not good for the climate!!

  50. Lots of people keep saying Trump is a war monger…. it seems to me, the past 2 1/2 years have been relatively quiet militarily, as compared to the previous 15.

  51. My Big Idea: AKA how I plan to get unintelligent, uninformed masses to follow me like sheep!
    Puerto Rico on Statehood: **Puerto Rico has voted against statehood 4 times in the past due to not wanting to pay American taxes. Taxes that fund social programs like Medicaid and Social Security.
    Congressman José E. Serrano, who was born in Puerto Rico, celebrated the results of the plebiscite and claimed it as final proof that “Congress has a duty to listen and act upon these results so that Puerto Rico can be DECOLONIZED once and for all.”
    **Governor Ricardo Rossello—the leader of the pro-statehood New Progressive Party—echoed sentiments that the referendum’s message was clear. “The UNITED STATES of AMERICA will have to OBEY the will of OUR people"!
    **Advocates of statehood say it would resolve the island’s fiscal crisis. Statehood would grant Puerto Rico access to parity in federal funds for social programs like Medicaid and public housing subsidies, important programs for a place where about 45 PERCENT OF ITS PEOPLE ARE LIVING IN POVERTY.
    **So is it wise for America to take on more debt?
    As of Jan. 2019 the US national debt reached just over 22 TRILLION DOLLARS! this puts each US citizen, (including newborns) $67,000 in debt with interest continually building. My grandparents bought a 2 bedroom, 1 bath house for less than $67,000!
    *Obama added $9 trillion in debt during his term. George W. Bush added $4.9 trillion. Bill Clinton added $1.5 trillion.
    On the day that Barack Obama was sworn in—January 20, 2009—the debt was $10.626 trillion. When he left the White House on January 20, 2017, it was $19.947 trillion.
    **Even the Nay Sayers cannot deny that our economy has improved under President Trump.
    Pete Buttigeig's SECOND "BIG IDEA": **Get rid of the Electoral college *because it subverts the will of the people*.

  52. My Big Idea: AKA How I get the ignorant, uninformed masses to follow me.
    WHY WE HAVE THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE. (Have they stopped teaching this is school)?
    Our presidents do not win election by popular vote, they are elected by 538 electors. We do not live in a pure democracy. Our framers knew that throughout history, democracies don't work, they implode.
    Our presidents are voted in 2 elections, the first, is purely democratic. In the presidential primaries by voting for a candidate you are actually voting for 4 electors of the corosponding political parties.
    The 2nd election happens in December and determines the presidential winner. At least 270 votes are needed to win.
    Why is this important? This system encourages national campaigning and votes from different geographical and sociopolitical groups of citizens.
    Winning the south or Midwest, is not enough, you cannot get 270 electoral votes. If winning were one about getting the most votes, then the candidates would only have to campaign in the largest cities and biggest states.
    Under this system, no political party can ignore any state for too long without suffering the consequences.
    Every state and therefore every voter in every state is important.
    The electoral college makes it harder to steal elections! Votes must be stolen in the right state in order to change the outcome of the Electoral College. With so many swing states, this is hard to predict and hard to do.
    Without the Electoral College, any vote, stolen in any precinct in the country, could affect the national outcome, even if the vote was stolen in the bluest California, or the reddest Texas.
    The Electoral College is an ingenious method of selecting a President for a great, diverse republic such as our own – it protects against the tyrany of the majority.
    THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE:
    *protects against the tyrany of the majority.
    *encourages coalition building.
    *discourages voter fraud.

  53. WHY WASHINGTON DC ISN'T A STATE FOR DUMMIES LIKE PETE BUTTIGEIG.
    Why wasn’t the nation’s capital made a state in the first place?

    First, it’s worth remembering that Washington, D.C. was not always the capital. George Washington first took office in New York City, and then the capital was moved to Philadelphia, where it remained for a decade. Washington, D.C. was founded as the capital in 1790 as a result of a compromise between Alexander Hamilton and northern states, and Thomas Jefferson and southern states. Hamilton’s economic policies consolidated power in the bankers and financiers who primarily lived in the North, so the compromise moved the capital physically more South, to appease Jefferson and southern leaders who feared northern control of the nation.

    The founders worried that if the capital were to be a state, the members of the government would be unduly beholden to it. Madison envisioned that voting members of a D.C. state would be able to ‘insult’ or ‘interrupt’ the proceedings of government to get their way, simply by virtue of physical proximity to the halls of power.

    When the capital was officially moved to D.C., residents lost voting representation in Congress and the Electoral College, as well as a say in Constitutional Amendments and the right to home rule. Members of the district won a victory in 1961 with the passage of the 23rd amendment to the Constitution, which granted them votes in the electoral college.

    To this day, D.C. does not have voting representation in Congress, and the federal government maintains jurisdiction over the city.

  54. Moron mayor thinks he's smarter than the Founding Fathers of this REPUBLIC. As a mayor of a small town he has a picture of why the Electoral College was and still is important today to keep the few large mega cities, states like New York, Los Angeles, California and Florida and New York to dominate the control of the country over the small cities like the mayor's city. He doesn't get it so in my opinion he's right where his skill set has put him all I can say is keep studying about the Constitution, Electoral College. The Founding Fathers really knew what they were doing when they set This form of Government in action. It's amazing to me how people of such lower caliber think they have a better understanding. My advice to them would be to go start your own country and you can be the Founder and you can set your Democracy in motion and we will really see how good your idea's are.
