  1. The reason they’re struggling to find trump’s reasoning behind the decision to commit this assassination is…hey, we all know why. If there was reasoning before the act, they wouldn’t be in panic mode now. Again.
    Tired of winning?

  2. How many times has Kim from North Korea threatened America. They are raised to hate Americans. They have museums dedicated to being anti – American . Google it.

  3. this is the biggest joke I've heard out of the lying mouth of a Republican, yet!! trump, a pathological, lying liar, whose lies, since he took office are monumental, (he can't get through a paragraph, without trashing President Obama and lying through his teeth, maybe twice), has never been candid in his whole miserable life!! These lying Republicans on the Hill aren't stupid, they know what trump is, they enable, lie and protect trump, because they don;t want to lose their power or Russian money any more than trump does!! Old Moscow Mitch and Lindsey Graham lead the pack, taking big money from the Russians, M.M. got a 200 million dollar aluminum plant, for Kentucky! He got trump to lift sanctions off one of Putin's criminal, multi-billionaire oligarchs, Oleg Deripaska, the owner of the largest aluminum plant in the world. Deripaska is known in Russia as the "Aluminum King." M.M.'S reward was the aluminum plant, I don't know what trump's reward was!!

  4. And now it turns out that Trump authorized Soleimani's killing 7 months ago. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/national-security/trump-authorized-soleimani-s-killing-7-months-ago-conditions-n1113271

  5. The Republiclowns are the most corrupt cowards in the history of America … truly disgusting.  They will pay dearly at the ballot box‼
    ⛔ IMPEACH then IMPRISON ⛔
    #Trump4PRISONdent2020

  6. So what he is saying is, that even though Soleimani was murdered, the threat is still imminent. So I ask, what was the point in this assassination if it did not make us any safer? Kind of ridiculous to assume that this was nothing less than a political hit for traitor Tang to help him get re-elected.

  7. This is BS!! There's no evidence, there was no imminent threats.. If it's coming out of a republicans mouth it's a lie.

  8. All Iran citizens happy he’s dead but fake news is having a fit their leader was killed. MSM is full of anti-Americans who hate America! They should go to Iran where they can live ‘Free and happy’! He hates what the congressman is saying!

  9. I hope that you people that sopport a trump war with Iranian and the middle eastern country be the first to suit up and March to his war base on his lie with some fake intelligent reports that he could have got made up by the Russian intelligent KGB because he believes in the Russian over out own intelligent reports about what is going on around the world and how he going to have to deal with it and where a dangerous situation is at and how and when to respond in a timely manner and bring it under control peacefully

  10. This jerk, Tom Reed, is unfortunately my House Rep. He is all about NRA and Special Interest money and that is how he votes. Most of the NY Counties he is supposed to represent and crumbling into poverty during his 10+ yrs. in DC. He was reelected in 2018 with a campaign that netted him approximately 2 million dollars, $900,000 of which came from voters and the remainder was special interest. He is preening himself on TV now because he has a wet-dream to be Governor of NY and the trump-directed RNC are backing him. VOTE them out!

  11. We can't risk the lives of fake sources by disclosing fake intel about fake threats. That's because they all live in Trump's magical Land of Fake-Believe.
    Yesterday as sun rose in the west a WH spokesman for Mr 15000 declared the first snow of the year in the Land of Fake-Believe… and his Orwellian sheeple believed him.

  12. Americans and our allies and the world will never believe anything Trump says regarding Iran because he has burnt the woods beyond repairability and that's the danger that our Intel we're talking about. When nothing a president and his administration says is believed he might as well resign, he has become irrelevant.

  13. "NYT: Trump’s Economic Sanctions Have Destroyed Iran’s Will to Fight" 14 Jan 2020
    https://www.breitbart.com/economy/2020/01/14/nyt-trump-economic-sanctions-have-destroyed-iran-will-to-fight/

    The New York Times noted Monday 13 Jan 2020 that one reason the United States successfully stared down the Iranian regime last week was that President Donald Trump’s renewed economic sanctions have made the cost of war too high for Iran to bear.
    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/13/business/economy/iran-economy.html
    In an analysis published Monday, titled “Iran’s Grim Economy Limits Its Willingness to Confront the U.S.,” the Times explained:

    Crippling sanctions imposed by the Trump administration have severed Iran’s access to international markets, decimating the economy, which is now contracting at an alarming 9.5 percent annual rate, the International Monetary Fund estimated. Oil exports were effectively zero in December, according to Oxford Economics, as the sanctions have prevented sales, even though smugglers have transported unknown volumes.

    The bleak economy appears to be tempering the willingness of Iran to escalate hostilities with the United States, its leaders cognizant that war could profoundly worsen national fortunes. In recent months, public anger over joblessness, economic anxiety and corruption has emerged as a potentially existential threat to Iran’s hard-line regime.

    Inflation is running near 40 percent, assailing consumers with sharply rising prices for food and other basic necessities. More than one in four young Iranians is jobless, with college graduates especially short of work, according to the World Bank.

    Moreover, Europe and the United Nations could also join the U.S. in reimposing their sanctions in the near future.

    Some fear that hard-liners within the regime could see war as a potential way to stimulate the economy, the Times notes. However, a full and direct confrontation with the U.S. “would likely weaken the currency and exacerbate inflation, while menacing what remains of national industry.” It could also “threaten a run on domestic banks,” the Times notes.

    As Breitbart News recently noted, President Trump’s decision to leave President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions on Iran — not just for its nuclear activities but for its terrorism and human rights abuses — has more than wiped out the economic gains Iran achieved by agreeing to the Iran deal in 2015.

    Trump has left the regime with a set of impossible choices: risk war, and damage the domestic economy further, leading to destabilizing protests; or yield to U.S. demands, saving the economy but also showing Iranians the regime can be defeated.

  15. I'm so tired of people making excuses for the disaster in the White House. If my job performance was on par with that of pResident tRump, I would have veen fire within the first month. Isn't the office of the presidency an important enough job that we shouldn't dismiss and excuse his utter incompetence?

  16. wwwgotnews.com avg 45 likes per comment, how many view wwwgotnews.com along the way ? this is how you Build a website and string it for exposure… if you build it they will come

  17. Funny how Democrat’s are ok with killing babies but not a terrorist. Keep drinking the coolaide. Left and Right both are corrupt. Libertarian party wants to abolish 2/3 of the government for a reason. Keep letting the media pit us against each other.

  18. https://youtu.be/P7AQ7ZD-5C4 are you brave enough to watch the a smart black man who knows when he is being played..??? Lonnel HarrisLive 2

  19. The only difference between the start of world war one and the current situation is that Serbia was small and Austria big so a war could start, and that Iran is small and the US big so it is less likely Iran would want to attack the US. But still a very unfortunate and undesirable situation for the world. I'm surprised to see that American politicians mostly think only about the USA in a globalized world. I hope you get to this century soon.

  20. Msnbc comrade host quotes NY Times—-lolololol. That's like 1 coyote quoting another howling coyote. TRUMP 2020. KEEP AMERICA GREAT.

  21. "The imminent risk" that was ordered by thumper SEVEN months ago. Removing a bad guy from the board is something that has to be done, but doing it the way we did it…isn't something that has to be done. I guess he's forgotten that the debriefing wasn't accepted by MOST of the Congress and that ONLY Congress can approve moves that will get us into a war.

  22. — > Trump didn't notify Congress, our allies, or the Iraqi government about the strike on Soleimani. It's not that "they couldn't say", others have said that "they didn't have any intelligence on it". They sent out a generic message to all embassy's not four and no orders to evacuate to any. It wasn't imminent such that Trump couldn't have informed the Gang of 8. Rep. Reed is saying he's okay with a president making unilateral decisions about war and peace.

  23. Trump's strategy has been consistent from day one. He is anti-war, but he is also anti-weak. He doesn't want to invade deserts of sand like the neocons, but he doesn't want to put his head in the sand, like the isolation nuts, either.

    It was the same over Syria — withdrawing troops from a conflict that is someone else's business, but a missile strike if you use chemical weapons.

    You saw it with North Korea — fire and fury and then historic negotiations.

    The same with China. Tough tariffs, but look at what's happening this week. They're coming here to sign a deal.

    This is the Trump Revolution: Pragmatic, non-ideological. He approaches issues as a problem-solving businessman.

    It's actually a revolution in ideas and it goes way beyond foreign policy. He is combining the best of traditional conservative ideas with positive populism, appointing conservative judges while leading the way on criminal justice reform, cutting taxes and boosting family leave. Cutting regulations was given a massive boost last week with new plans to reform the environmental bureaucracy that's blocking infrastructure construction and cutting low wage immigration.

    The result? Well, we know the story by now, but we see new chapters every month. Another positive jobs report on Friday. Unemployment again at a 50-year low. And here's the most important part: earnings rising, not just for everyone, but fastest for the lowest-paid, ending nearly 50 years of stagnation.

    Who backed the human and economic catastrophe of the Iraq War? Who brought in the disastrous 1986 Immigration Reform, creating the broken system that Trump is trying to fix? Who let China into the World Trade Organization, devastating American manufacturing to the point where we literally can't even print Bibles in America?

    Who pushed ruling class trade globalism that spawned the disastrous NAFTA, putting so many Americans out of work in the heartland? And who assaulted the American family with policies that collapsed marriage rates and family stability?

    No, not the evil Trump — it was the now VERY weakened Republican and Democrat "Establishments" who did this to America. These never-Trumpers are apologists for an elitist ideology that is anti-worker, anti-family and anti-community. So they can write whatever pompous, self-righteous nonsense they want in The New York Times. The establishment Republican and Democratic Parties are not coming back. They're dead, killed by their policy failures and Donald Trump's policy success. They're like pampered aristocrats in pre-revolutionary France in powdered wigs and fake beauty spots as they witter to each other, "My dear, Trump is so vulgar!"

    Well, maybe he is. But if you're someone who has finally got a job after years on the scrap heap, you'll take that over elegant failure. If you're a patriot who is finally seeing America stand up to China and defend our borders, you'll come to the same conclusion.

    After Trump, it's a different Republican Party. And the Democrats will lose huge until they start to serve America…instead of their quench for power at all costs. And for American workers, families, and communities, that is fantastic news.

  24. Is American leadership for real or just like any other sociopath and sycophant especially among republicans geese we are tired 😓

  25. You've also got a Real American Congress, Mr Reed – And THEY weren't brought into the loop either … the Public doesn't NEED every scrap of data, But the US Congress DOES !

  26. Only in America does one party have more concern for terrorist rights than the safety of our soldiers and citizens.

  27. There was NO imminent threat. We can know this because we've heard nothing about it being thwarted!
    Also, we shouldn't be concerned about Trump publicly releasing supposedly classified details. Lying to the public isn't classified.

  28. Either Reed is part of the new Reich. Or he is a fool that does not see that Trump is trying to take away the power of Congress and undermine it.

  29. Trump in 2011: "Obama will start a war with Iran in order to get re-elected."

    Republicans like to act like the past didn't happen. Trump likes to accuse other people of the things he does.

  30. "You must think me a fool to make your lies so transparent!" ~ Worf, son of Mogh
    30% of the US population really is that stupid.

  31. Why doesn't this channel talk about unemployment the economy isis being destroyed is it because it would make Trump look like the best president of all time oh and you guys down hear who take in this channel BS you are all brainwashed

  32. Trump was right about draining the swamp, after he leaves office the swamp will be shamed out of DC along with him, i wonder how many congressmen will be working as grounds keepers in 2021. .

  33. Does everybody understand the General was a terrorist? Hillary, Biden and Obama ignored the pleas from Bengazi and people needlessly died. Trump protected our Diplomats and everyone's in an uproar.

  34. MSNBC you are now a threat to America alone with your foreign activist the Democrats. Can not believe you are defending a terrorist. You guys all act like Globalists activist defending corrupt foreign murderers, these actions undermine America safty.
    You should find a news sight in iran where you can condemn the AMERICAN PRESIDENT you should feel shame, no matter how much you HATE Trump.

  35. I don't know what's more hilarious this trivial media BS or all the nearsighted dem comments. Siding with a terrorist over your own countryman….

  36. 1:05 what's this guys winking about re: `future activity' – thought maybe an old guy twitch [hemorrhoid, gas, bone spur] at first but replay looks to be a wink to an unknown audience member – any thoughts?

  37. Overly candid is not a phrase that I would connect with the Oval Office Occupant. It is hard to reveal details that you have not received. The Secretary of Defense obviously doesn't know what he is talking about, right?

  38. If it was imminent, then it was past needing Soleimani to make it happen. Lies however, require no evidence at all.
    Had it been imminent, then it would have still happened. Just killing a top general does nothing to the plan itself.
    He may have planned it, masterminded it, organized it and was needed for all of that.
    However, once imminent, his task was done. So where is this attack? The response would have been the attack, not missiles.

  39. Just another sycophant who doesn't care about the truth or the destruction that Trump is doing to the country. The GOP has died and have been replaced by these bodysnatchers.

  40. Dems said impeach on camera before Trump took Oath. Any GOP lawmaker who helps in the witch-hunt–gets voted OUT of office. Period

  41. All of Trump people are very comfortable, be trading the country, under their fearless leaders, I hope they all go to jail for lying 🤥🤥🤥🤥 if he did nothing what’s the big deal.
