  1. What to do when Democrats make mistakes? Turn and run for the hills, they are the party of treachery, lies, evil and the least of all mistakes.

  2. "democracy" Lost the vote, multiple criminal conspiracies both foreign and domestic. "won" should always be followed with an asterisk for honest people.

  3. Chamberlain made a huge mistake trusting Hitler that Hitler would stick to any "Peace Agreement" & was forever known as an appeaser & fool. The Allies made a bigger mistake in not smashing & destroying Hitler while they still had a chance. SpankyPants must be destroyed & smashed before he ruins America & causes a War with Iran or heaven forbid a 3rd World War that goes nuclear. Spanky is that volatile & dangerous. I predict a "War" between Iran & Israel at America's behest or a War between Iran vs Israel & America just before the 2020 election. This will be to distract us & rev up fanatical nationalism from his failed policies.

  4. People are being fed a false story of a time in the past where every citizen lived in Utopia. It was BS then and people are delusional if they think these wannabes (Trump and Boris) are suddenly going to bring it back. Society needs forward thinking and progressive policy in order to survive in today's ever changing world.
    Leadership does not change you it reveals who you truly are.

  5. Really? The people dont believe this MSM crap anymore. Sorry MSNBC your BS and fake crowd laughter has failed. You are finished, you won't divide the people anymore.

  6. Actually, we didn’t ‘do Brexit to ourselves’. The British public were asked a question, and we answered. The result of the referendum was Leave. But the politicians started to play stupid games (Corbyn) , power games etc instead of getting on with the job of working together to negotiate the exit deals. So now there is the possibility of a general election, which will be run on Brexit. Basically, another referendum. But you can’t keep having referendums until you get the ‘right’ answer? Can you? God help us.

  7. “If there is one fact we really can prove, from the history that we really do know, it is that despotism can be a development, often a late development and very often indeed the end of societies that have been highly democratic. A despotism may almost be defined as a tired democracy. As fatigue falls on a community, the citizens are less inclined for that eternal vigilance which has truly been called the price of liberty; and they prefer to arm only one single sentinel to watch the city while they sleep.” 
    ― G.K. Chesterton, The Everlasting Man

    “There’s no English equivalent for silovik. It doesn’t translate succinctly because to create something as Machiavellian as a silovik requires both the KGB and the GRU, and then a shift from communism to capitalism, followed by a gear-grinding reverse into despotism.” 
    ― Tanya Thompson, Red Russia

    “The actions of government, we are told, bear down only on imprudent souls who provoke them. The man who resigns himself and keeps silent is always safe. Reassured by this worthless and specious argument, we do not protest against the oppressors. Instead we find fault with the victims. Nobody knows how to be brave even prudentially. Everyone stays silent, keeping his head low in the self-deceiving hope of disarming the powers that be by his silence. People give despotism free access, flattering themselves they will be treated with consideration. Eyes to the ground, each person walks in silence the narrow path leading him safely to the tomb.” 
    ― Benjamin Constant, Principles of Politics Applicable to All Governments

    “The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism: ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.” 
    ― Franklin D. Roosevelt.

  8. Correct them.
    Start by isolating the problem and remove it from further interferring.
    For the Brexit case: abort the idea all together.
    It was a mistake from the get-go…

  9. Brexit is a great idea. Glad Boris Johnson is there to push the course. Chris Hayes is nothing but a hack. And will undoubtedly have to face loss of reputation, from all of his lies about Dorian, which won't be forgotten, since they are all on tape

  10. all of this is grim except for the hope that democracy succeeds, and our democracy and other countries democracies being at stake isnt funny. I dont understand why theres any laughing except for the part where boris johnson talked about haggis exports to mike pence lmao. sure I accept our political climate is bizarre, but the earths climate is out of control and theres not enough effort being put forth by leaders right now for us to reduce the harm we're doing to the earth and prevent further damage. electoral college should have been abolished way back and we should of had al gore as president so the battle versus climate change could have started earlier and so we could have prevented this mess happening right now. of course thats all hindsight so what are you going to do. all you can do now is vote. inb4 trump2020 us us us bs bs bs ru ru ru you guys are selfish trolls obstructing progression and sabotaging our future stop worshiping a charlatan who your existence is worth dirt to. I have friends who support trump im not an idealogue and im not interested in changing minds all i can do is say my two cents, vote, and have hope that cognitive dissonance, ignorance, and corruption fails so that democracy succeeds.
    really watching this whole video i was pretty much like this guy @8:17

  11. Not having a deadline is a bad thing if you want to change things. There is not immediate need to do something. Biggest disasters are those which become disasters gradually, slowly.

  12. Wait a second. Isn't the UK a constitutional monarchy? Wasn't that the point of Magna Carta and the English Revolution and the execution of Charles I? Surely the UK has a constitution!

  13. Where TRUMP loses credibility is NOT ordering the Military to arrest MSNBCannibals for TREASON .. MSNBCannibal news is the most disgusting evil propaganda .. You cannot be a human being and actually feel like you are being informed watching this filth

  14. Deus ex machina?! REALLY? Chris is smart, has a good show. Been watching as it has evolved and he finds his niche. But now he and his pundits have become TOO INTELLECTUAL! It’s a bunch of highly educated yuppies just trying to outsmart themselves and each other many times, ITS NOT FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC which makes it a disservice. WHATS THE POINT IF YOURE ONLY TALKING TO 15% OF THE POPULATION? I’m not saying dumb it down, but WHO EXCEPT ENGLISH LIT MAJORS WILL GET REFERENCES LIKE DEUS EX MACHINA? It’s ridiculous.
