I hope we are not that Country, but people have been killed elsewhere for saying what he did. I don't trust our Nation anymore. So I say, it was a very brave speech.

I wouldn't be surprised if YouTube starts getting censored, because Lee Camp, Jummy Dorsey, Abby Martin, and people like Chris Hedges, Edward Snowden, Noam Chomsky and their channels get good exposure through YouTube.

Perhaps the election of Donald Trump is a silver lining in a dark universe. Donald Trump has not always called himself a Republican; but, the Republicans seem to have an awful lot of influence over him. Actually, I think the corporations have the most influence over him. At one time our country was a democratic republic. Now, it might best be described as an oligarchy. Too few people have too much power. Donald Trump is only a puppet, just as many of the past Presidents have been.

I don't have time to watch an hour long video right now; but, going by the title's reference to the ultimate Trump takedown, I'm not so sure I want Trump to be taken down. That would give us Mike Pence and I do not want Pence to be President.

Is Donald Trump going to turn out to be our worse President? I'm not so sure, I think George W. Bush was probably the worse. Before that, it might be Richard Nixon or Lyndon Johnson. At least Nixon had the decency to resign from office. However, since Nixon there have been many presidents who I would have liked to see resign.

The US has been in a fascist decline for decades. It did not start with Trump's election; but, it took said election for people to start paying attention.

I did not vote for Trump. As of the 2016 election I am done voting for parties. I have a set of issues that would be important for our country and the world if they could be implemented. I will vote for candidates who support those same issues and have the record to show that they do support them.

I wasn't particularly happy with the title to the video Donna, as I can't create my own Youtube video's I must use what is there and how they title it. It is a powerful video - and in other Countries he would be having an arrest about now or had already happened, he might not be alive, and I can only hope that we don't ever become that........but if he does leave us in some "accident" I'll know why.

Despite the reservations of some of you, it IS definitely worth watching, but then ALL the material that is presented by Chris Hedges, Lee Camp, Abby Martin, Noam Chomsky, etc.etc., is worth watching.

I can quite imagine Drumpf labelling Hedges an enemy of the people like he did to the MSM, and acting like a traffic cop saying "Move along! Nothing to see here!" In Russia, Mad Vlad (Putin) removes his opposition by murdering them, some very publicly as a deterrent to others. Will Putin's Puppet, Drumpf, ever move to that level? I don't know but I certainly hope not. IMO, he is psychotic and capable of anything to feed his ego, his wallet, and his sense of power.

Good vid that really makes one think about what is going on. Too bad it could not air on Faux Noise to get in the face of all the Drumpf acolytes.

It should be aired on CNN and MSNBC as well Lynn, because they are far from telling the whole story as well.

Sheryl, glad you found this. If only more people could see this and open their eyes to what's going on. I'm glad I saved this until I could watch it without interruption.
What a powerful speech.
Thank you for something that I learned from too.
