    There it is. He was moving it all around, getting different shots, smiling. Had to move and gas people first.

    Was that for the Evangelicals? He could take that picture anytime he wanted. I have no idea what that was all about, unless some political stuff.

    That's what some governors and lawyers are saying. States have to request it first. It made sense for the L.A. riots, since that was just out of control. I guess the states will see if they can handle it themselves first, bring in National Guard etc. Military is a last resort type of thing.

    "Historically, there appears to be an aversion to using federal troops for domestic problems. But in the last 15 years, the President has deployed federal troops under the Insurrection Act in a number of cases. For example, in 1992, then President Bush invoked the act to send troops to restore order during the Los Angeles riots (which were triggered by the Rodney King verdict). The current President Bush invoked the act to place armed soldiers at airports in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks."

    I'm trying to find if the Governor of California requested it first.

    The gassing peaceful protesters for a photo-op is going to come back on him.

    I thought that was the case, either the governor has to request it, or the president has to send it through Congress or something.

    I don’t think we need a military presence in every state for this to stop, but it’s important to respect the peaceful protesters without disrupting their protests IMO

    And we're off, Trending #1 for me - https://twitter.com/search?q="Holding a Bible"&src=trend_click

    "Trump had protestors gassed and shot by the military police w/ rubber bullets so that he could get a photo holding a bible across the street."

    Upside down too.

    I mean, what is that. What part of his brain thought that was a good idea. I think he has surrounded himself with a bunch of Yes Men types, not 1 person to stand up to him and be real with him. Hey man, this just isn't a good idea, type thing.

    Degenerate liberal media: Trump is in a bunker hiding. He needs to say something to the nation.

    Press Secretary McEnany: He's been talking about the riots all week.

    Trump: Enough is enough, if the Gov's won't crack down I'll call in the National Guard.

    Degenerate liberals: FASCIST! FRAUD! NO GOOD!

    Everyone else: About time.

    Just curious, what is your take on the bible photo-op. Why do you think he did that. Do you think it was a good idea.

    If you think anyone cares about Trump standing in front of a church holding a bible or gassing "protesters" I have news for you.. we don't. We are pissed liberals lit the church on fire then let the arsonist escape.

    Two months ago degenerate media were calling antifa and black lives matter heros. Billions of $$ in damage by radical marxist propped up by Soros and glamorized by the media. New threats to take violence to white neighborhoods.

    Come and get it.

    Media parading a couple of white kids arrested across the country for arson, incitement, etc.. It wasn't just a few white kids with skate boards.

    It was organized marxist and communist funded by wealthy progressives. Glamorized by the media. You broke it. Now you'll pay the price in November.

    Where is Nancy's strong condemnation of the violence? My own senators are blaming Trump and silent on violence in Portland and Eugene.

    Never vote for a democrat.

    This is what happens when you convince ppl that the freest and most decent nation is inherently unjust and evil.

    You claim it's a photo op. You're track record of outrage stories isn't good.

    You have to. You Canadians do whatever the US tells you to do, no matter who s president. A far cry from the Vietnam War era, when you took in draft resisters.

    This morning you claimed Trump was in his bunker hiding. This afternoon Trump walked to a historic church to give a press meeting and liberals are loosing their minds.

    A video clip isn't context.

    Just because Trudeau got along better with Obama, serving the common good on a number of important trade talks and environmental issues in co-operation with the US, we must go along with whatever the US tells us to? Sorry buddy, although American influence doesn't stop at the border, FREEDOM has no borders and the US could learn much from our peaceful ways... even if by force of Trump!

    When the MP tells you to disperse, I guess you should disperse. Over the last few week, peaceful protest turn in a matter of minutes.

    ** 5 minutes to check.

    Curfew is at 7pm. Crowd didn't disperse. Trump didn't walk down the street until after curfew.

    Does anyone honestly think those "protesters" wouldn't be tearing things down if the police / M.P's were not there?

    @JB Lions
    The proof of how orchestrated these riots are is seen in the regular appearance of pallets filled with bricks available for rioters
    https://twitchy.com/brads-313037/20...lar-appearance-of-pallets-filled-with-bricks/

    No doubt in my mind the MP's were justified using tear gas, flash bangs, rubber bullets to disperse the crowd. It was curfew, they didn't follow orders. Only reason there were peaceful was b/c more law enforcement was there.

    Sorry, but it's true. Canada serves the interests of the US, like a proxy bitch. The same way deluded Americans talk about having freedom, deluded Canadians talk about being peaceful and nice. It's all propaganda. You should know this. Friendly? Maybe - partly because Canadians don't do humorous jibes. I feel Japan and Canada are similar that way. Some jab I might make at a British friend will result in a confused look or even anger.

    But the basic domestic spying, overseas adventurism and corruption at the top is pretty much a subset of the US. It's a shame more Canadians don't see through this. They just wear this "we are different from the USA" badge, without any awareness that they are not that different at all.

    XiNN are NOT saying that the church was set ablaze by rioters, yet AlJazeera DID mention it. Just shows how fu+king biased and misleading they are!
