Good news: People are getting better and families are reuniting | Humankind

This is the good news we all need. Patients are beating the disease and going …


  1. Love General Jack Keane's advice! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

  2. Do we already spend more on defense than the next 8 countries combined? Just curious.

  3. MacArthur was right…so was Patton.

  4. Merry Christmas not seasons greetings. This is the Time we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

  5. the army was never given a straight military task, that's why they failed in Afghanistan. surely not because of lack of funds, because there were 5.9 trillion poured into the whole debacle, that is more than a quarter of the US GDP. also not because of your all favorite scapegoat Obama, you ignorant fear-mongers.

  6. Bernard Sanders has top the list on receiving the most military donations!
    Trump is only at third place.

  7. More cash for the same 10,000 families who own 60% of Earth already…, I like Trump but I hate the .001% .

  8. We still don't know whot came across our southern border We need more military on our borders full time the world has changed These illegal drugs are killing our workers and children We don't even have affordable housing for the people we have now illegals are draining our benefit programs for our needy families fenish the wall secure the border This war is a long ways from being over they are still coming illegally 24/7 it hasn't stopped

  9. America is -$23 TRILLION deep in the 'hole' Keane speaks of. Reagan's budget was only $256B, one-third of this massive MIC-Pentagon blowout budget 2020. Together with 'unknowable' $100Bs war profiteering during the 2001 to 2019 illegal Wars of Levant, (which we are STILL engaged in today), MIC-Pentagon has received double-digit budget increases every year. Did you get double-digit raises at work to match? I didn't! Some independent estimates place the Missing In Action Pentagon funds at -$21,000,000,000,000!!

    Leon Panneta claimed he would audit the Pentagon , but he bugged out as soon as he saw the bleedout actuals. We have 800 OCONUS bases or FOBs, employing 10,000s of foreign nationals, while they are closing US bases and laying off American workers. What are those bases for? War profiteering! When the Soviet Union folded on Christmas, 1991, George Bush Sr tried to cut Pentagon spending, now that the Cold War was over, but it only took seven months for Cheney and Weinberger to betray the President, gyning up 'Islamic Jihad' to replace 'Creeping Communism' as the Big Red Flag we all are forced to march to, every April 15th.

    They got rid of Bush Sr in the 1992 election and brought in the Old WarHag, she took America into Kosovo, then on and on and on. We live in a state of perpetual war profiteering today. Last year, Americans could barely afford to pay $3,422B in taxes. This year, 2020 fiscal year, the Red-Blue UniParty of Joe-Don passed a $4,742B budget, 40% greater than what we can afford assuring another $1.8T Deficit adding to the $23T National Debt that the war and finance criminals have laid onto taxpayers' backs, the largest Deficit and largest Debt in human herstory!

    Not to push the point, Pentagon was hacked in 2012 of all military and civilian personal identity information (PII), then again in 2013 was hacked of all MIC contractor PII, until today Pentagon (and Congress) have ABSOLUTELY no idea where all the money is disappearing. They have no audit, no stop-loss and even more massive fraud, waste and abuse is reported by the Congressional Budget Office. Simply put, MIC Pentagon war profiteering, together with illegal, even criminal Wall Street financial frauds, will have bankrupted USA before 2025.

    On to Tehran!

  10. We were fighting wars in several countries. Now that wasn't so hard. Trump is just wasting cash. Largest deficit in history trump. In only 3 years so congratulations on your lack of business skills.

  11. Why we can't afford health care if we can still afford to spend this much money on military. I get the military upgrade its important for our safety and security. But what about social services.

  12. What an insult lying SOB.

  13. Load…of…crap. "we didn't have the resources." LMFAO. Best funded military in the world in a place with no clear objective as stated by the people leading the invasion.

  14. Democrats wants to blow the budget when it comes to domestic spending.
    Republicans wants to blow the budget when it comes to military spending.
    A balanced budget ammendment to the constitution is needed.

  15. Dear God, what the hell do we have to do to get out of these endless wars all over the planet? This idiot explains that the problem in Afghanistan and in Iraq was that we didn't spend enough money there. We've spent TRILLIONS there! These war monger (war monsters) want to completely drain this country of all resources to satisfy their blood lust. It's time to seriously consider closing down major portions of the military. We don;t have to be everywhere all the time. We can't. Not even the British Empire could sustain such a drain.

  16. Tell the general to google dancing Israelis.

  17. obama depleted our military he did it so we can be weak he did it on purpose

  18. needed? how can we afford it, when we are so far in debt

  19. Speaking of "digging ourselves a deep hole," can the general here explain why we've been in Afghanistan for over nineteen years, and counting?? Asking a military man if they need more money is like asking a junkie if he needs more heroin.

  20. The General is bulshitting…we went to Afganistan to restart the opium trade

  21. This Jack Keane is an MIC Shill, nothing more

  22. Is Lou Dobbs dying his hair? Let it be gray… Vanity always looks the worst.

  23. Remember when the DNC took money from the Red Chinese Army?

  24. What ever happened to those WMDs in Iraq?

  25. "If the Nuremberg laws were applied, then every post-war American president would have been hanged." Noam Chomsky
    Delivered around 1990

  26. why have none of them been arrested??

  27. We don't need no education…
    We don't need no thought control.
    No dark sarcasm in our Congress…
    Trump, leave those whores alone.

  28. Thank God for President TRUMP.

  29. The U.S. is currently in talks with the Taliban in Afghanistan to let them regain power and run the country again. That sums up how pointless that invasion was.

  30. I like what Trump is doing on some issues, but I strongly disagree with this handout to the defense industry. I would like to see significant reduction in defense spending. I don't think it is good to reward the Pentagon and defense industry with more money, when they can't even keep track of several billion dollars they have already been given.

  31. Ask old Lou, "Why he decided never to serve his country"! As a matter of fact ask every able body soul at FAUX Fox news!I

  32. Obama was spineless .His main goal was further islam and fill him and Michelle pockets and that he did

  33. Would someone please suggest to Gen Keane, that it is time to fade quietly into the background. He is a nothing more than a shill for the globalists, an embarrassment, only interested in enriching himself.

  34. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Ask the Vatican for money πŸ’° since all Wars are Religious πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  35. North Korea thinks America is more hurt by his threats by doing it at Christmas every year, very revealing to Kim's way of thinking and deductive reasoning. Childlike even

  36. That is because crippling our military was one of Obamas jobs. Clearing the way for UNITED NATIONS OCCUPYING FORCES to be let in by HILLARY.



  39. Heck you should be spending two trillion a year on the military.
