  1. Magats threaten Americans daily, anyone who doesn't agree with their nazi ideology is subject to death threats. Double standard.

  2. Can somebody please take Trump cell phone away from him already! He's gonna get alot of people killed just by his tiny hands along!!!

  3. The Trump administration should pay less on guns and more on it's people! Pompeo described our government! I don't know how he could keep a straight face while describing the mafia like govt in Iran! You could easily take out Iran in that conversation and replace the word with US govt!

  4. Mike Pompeo looks like he understands the mafia. He embarrasses himself by pretending his boss is sane. Good luck Mike , you will go down in history as an enabler of the dangerous ignoramus in charge. Where''s your honor and sense of decency? Perhaps you left in Singapore.

  5. Why not look at the positive part of Rouhani's statement that they are quite willing to support peace? Why look to the negative side? Honestly, America was not threatened; it was given an indication that peace is one option, and now the ball is in America's court. Now, what is Congress going to do? Is it going to go along with Trump, or actually do their job?

  6. President Trump, please be the bigger man and ignore them. You are a president now so brush off whatever will be said to you by others to prevent unnecessary outcomes

  7. Iraq and Afghanistan were a cake walk, still going on, compared to battle with Iran. Americans should be very careful what they do about Iran. This is a war Americans absolutely do not want.

  8. Putin DEFLECTION this is what this is, except it becomes dangerous coming from a fool with no diplomatic experience.

  9. Our traitor in Chief is a tough guy now!!! But he has no respect…he a punk!!! Instead of giving up his failing scam, Trump will do anything to distract from the fact that he's guilty if collusion and giving aid and comfort to the enemy…. treason!!!!

  10. IMAGINE (John Lennon) if every channel used one segment to encourage people &or VOTING … For example, post Red Skeleton's explanation as to why people should respect the PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE … This is an example worth your time and effort looking up on YouTube … Just a suggestion & please do it!

  11. We have no allies in the east, never did, never will.Anyone claiming 'ally' is a fraud.Eastern def. of ally; protect and back me in my agenda, but don't have resources to reciprocate.Sorry but dat.

  12. Trump has a big mouth, but isn't willing to put his body in harm's way. He expects someone else's kids to be fighting the war that he starts. That's easy with "no skin in the game". Trump lacks the maturity and morality to be an effective leader. Besides, he doesn't even like Americans.

  13. This is dumber than Bush in Iraq. Iran would be exponentially more difficult to fight in war than Iraq was/is, far far bigger and more armed.

  14. Trump was criticizing everything from everybody all the time. The only thing good to him is when he managed to put his "lie-detector-like signature" underneath some kind of paperwork. Showing the world, he can write and "achieved something" . Boy we are so SCR**D. Now we have to fear for his re-election idea of Obama to start a war with Iran? Financed by whom? All the rich whom are not paying taxes anymore? Let him first send in his family-members, they for sure will be treated with "egare" once stepping on Iranian soil.

  15. As a Canadian watching the American insanity.. I am at a loss to understand how a great country can go so wrong so fast. I can only hope decent people get out and VOTE.

  16. Trump's policy is dictated by Netanyahu & for Israel. Iran is not a threat to America; just a annoyance to Israel, but that's enough to start another war.
    Also, Israel is OK with Russia.
    So that's why.

  17. What a joke. Trump desperate attempt to save face after he slither on his belly for his Lord Putin for the world ? to see.

  18. Crazy know crazy___tweeting tantrums with Iran & Enemy list of our best intelligence officials as the worm squirms.

  19. Why didn't he say SHYT when POOTIN sent the VIDEO of a IBCM flying from RUSSIA to MARALAGO to BLOW DRUMPF OFF the face of earth? This Twittering Tough Guy Is JOKE ?

  20. Why doesn't Trump threaten Putin with what he will do if Putin interfere in our elections again. He goes to war with everyone else about a simple comment he doesn't like, but he is so afraid of Putin that he calls him BFF. Putin is laughing and calling him a clown. Putin knows Trump is weak and afraid of him.

  21. Premier Khrushchev of Russia in 1960, Told America that Russia would not have to fire a shot, that America will destroy from within

  22. Here a hypothesis I didn't hear discussed: Russia has always had its eye on Iran. The Soviets even invaded Iran, back in the day. Since Trump has treasonously adhered to our enemy, it makes sense for him to have as an enemy another target of his master.

  23. “Our president will start a war with Iran, because he has absolutely no ability to negotiate. He’s weak and he’s ineffective. We have a real problem in the White House.”- Donald J. Trump.

  24. I just wrote one of my senators asking him to urge congress to do its duty and remove Trump from office. (The other senator opposes Trump.) Please do the same with your senator(s).

  25. This is a big smoke screen for Helsinki, also a backhanded message to North Korea… America needs a country to bully and bombed to a dust bowl, so that North Korea will get the message..

  26. Trump, Bannon and Pam Geller are the architects of the current Iran attack and we should be alert because this is prelude to a war to "save the West"

  27. God Bless President Donald Trump-8 year president. Democrats join the # walkaway movement.
    Read Mark Taylor’s book “The Trump Prophecies”. This will show you what is really going on.

  28. So does that mean his kids are going to fight in the war or sending others' kids. Easy to threaten war when you aren't physically involved.

  29. He thought Iran would get scared? Iran already has replied in kind! Google Javad Zarif's (Iran foreign minister) reply to Donald Trump.

  30. Trump is Guilty. The only subject is Trump's Treason. anyone thinking otherwise is under the influence of the "Hate Hillary" campaign by the Kremlin and the .001%.

  31. What is behind this strategy??? Projection. Accuse others of that which you are guilty of. We are tired of this president's demented threats.

  32. D stands for Democrat and Democracy. R stands for Republican and Russia! A nice campaign slogan. Yeah!

  33. Now he is trying to get us all killed…Just send the baby blimp to Iran and maybe they will understand what we are dealing with…

  34. When Trump is desperate to distract from himself he impulsively lashes out to change focus. Typical Trump maneuver!

  35. Trump threatens Iran but welcomes Putin to America. Why doesn't he threaten Russia who shot down the Malaysian Airlines plane killing nearly 300 innocent people. Why doesn't he put sanctions on Russia for this atrocity and threaten to blow them off the face of the earth? Instead he's inviting Putin for a pow wow to America. Makes you wonder how a President could be so two faced. He's an absolute disgrace.

  36. 5 Now, I’ll just start where I left off this morning then, over in the 4th chapter of Acts. And so…And begin, I believe, along about the 10th verse of the 4th chapter of—of the Acts of the apostles, or, acts of the Holy Spirit in the apostles. See? We always think that, call that, “The Acts of the apostles.” But it wasn’t the acts of the apostles. It was the Holy Spirit in the apostles, acting, you see. The men, themselves, were men, and they couldn’t act. Before I go any farther…

    1 John
    Chapter 3
    24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
    1 John
    Chapter 3
    9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

    10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
    2 Corinthians
    Chapter 11
    For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

    3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
    Ephesians
    Chapter 4
    And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

  37. Trump is all talk no action.
    Frustrated with North Korea nothing accomplished. Russia has him by his balls. Poor baby missed his nap and didn't get his bottle.

  38. It doesn't matter what our POTUS does, you will twist it and put him down every time. MSNBC is the real enemy of the people. Do you think the people can't see through your rhetoric?

  39. We as Americans must be stupid!! our vote put this "Donald dumptruck" in office. !!! WTF are we doing!! Aren't there standards!? To be the most responsible figure of this country

  40. The big tough guy lol …cadet bone spurs…too big of a self serving wuss to serve in the military himself

  41. Obvious that the Trump administration has been intent on using Iran as a handy dandy distraction adversary. He knew from the day he took office that he would use it when things got hot. Why would things get got? Well, if you're whole campaign and administration is tied up with Russians, and people start finding out, well some pretty intense heat is expected.

  42. Trump has already played with the lion’s tail. The American people. Those that are Demoralized are not in the majority are brainwashed. Republican Party has allowed this lacking a moral compass.
    #VoteAsIfYourLifeDependsOnIt. #BlueWaveComing2018

  43. When will the world start talking about building peace? No amount of WAR or aggression can bring peace to the world.

  44. Well the only reason Bannon and his friends supported Trump was because they wanted a war with Iran. This does not really come out of the blue.

  46. the president promise to the Saudi Not to do trade whit Iran Stupid president The gas price would be so chip now good for all of us But no he promise not to do business whit Iran went he visited Saudi

  47. Sick minds come up with these type of statements! Are we not better than this? We had a great deal with Iran but Trump destroyed it and now we have nothing!! Stupid talk. Stupid words!. Dangerous behavior!!!

  48. Russia's just fine! They ATTACK us and we have such a great relationship with them! I truly must be missing something!! Let the Iranians deal with Iran and stay out of their internal struggling!

  49. Great US President support Iranian people against the evil-killer ayatollahs regime in Iran. Bravo president D. Trump. No to a new holocaust. No to the evil-killer-facist-terrorist-sectarian brutal ayatollahs regime in Iran. Regime change in Iran is the only solution to the Iranian and world problems.

  50. Richard Haas has the worst record following 9-11 as policy director . That his opinion stands for something tells you how corrupted our leadership and the advisors they choose have hurt Americans and bankrupted efforts to repair failing electricity grid, bridges, roads, nuclear plants . Yet the worst part of the occupations in Muslim countries for the purpose of stealing their resources, is the long-term harm to our soldiers and the costs of their care being ignored and dismissed.
