#LoserDonald Wants To Try Detainees At Guantanamo, Despite Constitution

August 23, 2019


IT HAS BEEN AT LEAST A WEEK
SINCE DONALD TRUMP PROMISED AS PRESIDENT TO BREAK ONE LAW OR
ANOTHER, BUT HE’S GOT ANOTHER ONE HE WILL BREAK, IT HAS TO DO
WITH TRYING AMERICAN CITIZENS AT GUANT¡NAMO BAY.>>WHAT ABOUT THE DETENTION
CENTER AT GUANT¡NAMO BAY, WOULD YOU REISSUE IN ORDER TO HAVE
TRANSFERS THERE?>>I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE HAVE
A SAFELY STICKY RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISTS.>>WOULD YOU TRY TO GET THE
MILITARY COMMISSIONS TO TRY U.S. CITIZENS?>>I KNOW THEY WANT TO TRY THEM
IN OUR COURT SYSTEM AND I DON’T LIKE THAT AT ALL, THEY COULD BE
TRIED THERE, THAT WOULD BE FINE.>>I FIND IT DIFFICULT TO PAY
ATTENTION TO WHAT HE IS SAYING BECAUSE OF THE INCH AREA AROUND
HIS EYES. BUT WHAT HE SAID, IF YOU ARE ABLE TO LOOK PAST HIS
EYES AND THE DEAD SOUL LOOKING OUT FROM THEM, IS HE WOULD SEND
AMERICANS TO GUANT¡NAMO BAY. WHY NOT? THERE ARE SOME REASONS WHY
NOT –>>WHAT IF THEY COMMIT THE CRIME
IN HAVANA?>>THEN THEY GET IT IN HAVANA,
NOT GUANT¡NAMO BAY, BECAUSE THOSE ARE PROBABLY HUNDREDS OF
MILES APART. BUT I’M NOT SURE. ALSO, IN 1866 –>>SO WHETHER HE HAS STUDIED
SUPREME COURT HISTORY — AND I’M SURE HE HAS BECAUSE HE’S A
SERIOUS GUY — OR IF HE HAS JUST READ THE CONSTITUTION, WHAT HE
IS SAYING IS BULLSHIT AND YOU CAN’T DO THAT.>>MAYBE HE COULD GET KHIZR
KHAN’S COPY OF THE CONSTITUTION. IF YOU TAKE CONSTITUTIONAL LAW,
THAT IS ONE OF THE THREE CASES YOU REMEMBER. YOU HAVE TO BE
TRIED IN A STATE OR FEDERAL COURT, THAT’S IT.>>BUT THE CREDIBLE PART ABOUT
THAT IS EVEN THOUGH HE SAYS IT, AND EVEN THOUGH HE’S WRONG
BECAUSE IT’S AGAINST OUR CONSTITUTION, THE PART THAT
BOTHERS ME THE MOST IS THERE IS STILL SOME CHUNK OF THIS COUNTRY
THAT THINKS WHAT HE SAYS IS OKAY. I THINK IF YOU ARE A
SUSPECTED TERRORIST, EVEN IF YOU ARE A CITIZEN, YOU DON’T HAVE
THE RIGHT TO A QUICK AND SPEEDY TRIAL, YOU SHOULD BE SENT TO
GUANT¡NAMO. AND IT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL. I THINK MORE
THAN ANYTHING THIS ELECTION HAS TAUGHT ME THAT THE COUNTRY NEEDS
A CRASH COURSE ON THE CONSTITUTION AND WHY THE COUNTRY
IS THE WAY IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE. WE CAN’T JUST TALK ABOUT THE
CONSTITUTION IN TERMS OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT AND APPLAUD IT
IN THOSE TERMS, THERE ARE MANY OTHER AMENDMENTS YOU SHOULD KNOW
IT. BUT UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE A DOOFUS LIKE HIM SAYING SOMETHING
UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND HIS GOONS AGREE WITH THEM.>>THIS BEARS REPEATING, WHAT HE
IS SUGGESTING IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL, BUT WHAT WAS
UNCONSTITUTIONAL FOR A LONG TIME NOW TURNS OUT TO BECAUSE
ADDITIONAL. HE COULD PASS A LAW AND SAY NOW WE CAN DO THIS, AND
THEY WILL. JUST LIKE THEY REPEALED THE PRIVILEGE OF HABEAS
CORPUS. LET’S REMEMBER WHAT THAT IS, IT USED TO BE THAT
GOVERNMENTS AND TYRANTS WOULD IMPRISON THEIR OWN CITIZENS
WITHOUT CHARGE, IT WAS SO IMPORTANT THAT IN THE MAGNA
CARTA THEY HAD HABEAS CORPUS. THEY REPEALED THAT. YOU KNOW WHO
SIGNED THAT? BARACK OBAMA. SO IT’S NOT SO CRAZY WHAT HE SAID,
BECAUSE THEY CAN CHANGE THE LAW JUST LIKE THAT, WHICH IS WHAT
THEY DID, AND NO ONE IS SCREAMING ABOUT IT. WE ARE
OPERATING ON A LIBERTY VIEW FROM SOMEWHERE AROUND THE 1100S
BECAUSE WE ARE SO AFRAID OF TERRORISM. AND WE LIVE IN A
SURVEILLANCE STATE ALREADY. SO IN A WEIRD WAY TRUMP IS
REVEALING HOW CRAZY WE’VE BECOME BECAUSE WE ARE NOT AS DIFFERENT
FROM HIM AS YOU WOULD THINK.>>AND WE NEED TO REMEMBER THAT
THE CURRENT ART WE ARE ON IN REGARD TO HOW MUCH WE VALUE SOME
OF OUR RIGHTS, THE IDEA OF AN ENEMY COMBATANT, JUST MADE UP.>>IT CAME OUT OF THE ARMY.>>DIFFERENT PEOPLE, THEY HAVE
DIFFERENT RIGHTS. MAYBE SOME OF THEM GO TO GUANT¡NAMO BAY AND
NEVER GET OUT, NO BIG DEAL. AND THAT ALLOWS PEOPLE LIKE OBAMA TO
SAY GEORGE W. BUSH MASSIVELY EXPANDED HOW POWERFUL THE
EXECUTIVE BRANCH IS IN REGARDS TO THESE ISSUES, AM I GOING TO
GIVE IT BACK? NOT REALLY. THAT IS HOW HISTORY WORKS WHEN IT
COMES TO THE PRESIDENCY.>>THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN, ONE
OF THE MILLIONS OF DIFFERENCES, BETWEEN TRUMP AND CLINTON, I
AGREE WITH BOTH ANA AND JIMMY, IS THAT TRUMP — THAT DOES
APPEAL TO PEOPLE. THEY ARE TERRORISTS, THEY TRIED TO KILL
YOUR KIDS, I WILL LOCK THEM UP. IN CUBA, SO THERE IS NO RISK. THAT DOESN’T EVEN MAKE ANY SENSE, WHAT HE IS SAYING IS
THAT I DON’T TRUST OUR COURT SYSTEM TO HANDLE THEM.? OUR PRISONS TO HOLD THEM.>>I DON’T TRUST OUR
PROFESSIONALS IN PRISONS TO HOLD THEM. SO I CAN’T IMAGINE, WHILE
THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO AGREE WITH IT, I CAN’T IMAGINE ONE PERSON
WHO HAS NOT MADE UP THEIR MIND ALREADY BEING INFLUENCED BY
THIS, WHEREAS HILLARY CLINTON, STRICTLY POLITICS, IS AT LEAST
LIKE, I GOT SOME WAR CRIMINALS WHO ARE NOW GOING TO VOTE FOR
ME, MAYBE SOME PEOPLE WHO LIKE WAR CRIMINALS WILL COME ABOARD. IT IS A DIFFERENCE IN APPROACH, IT IS NOT MERELY THAT, BUT
HILLARY IS ATTEMPTING A BROADER CAMPAIGN THAT APPEALS TO SUSAN
COLLINS, WHO IS A SANE PERSON, AND DONALD TRUMP JUST CONTINUES
TO SORT OF DIVE IN ON PEOPLE WHO HE ALREADY HAS.>>I THINK TRUMP IS A LOT MORE
TRANSPARENT ABOUT WHAT HE WOULD DO AND HOW HE WOULD DO IT. IF
YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF WHAT OUR
GOVERNMENT AND EXECUTIVE BRANCH HAS DONE, I MEAN, EDWARD SNOWDEN
LEAKED THE FACT THAT OUR PROTECTIONS AGAINST UNREASONABLE
SEARCH AND SEIZURE WERE BEING VIOLATED UNDER THE OBAMA
ADMINISTRATION THROUGH THE NSA PROGRAM, THAT WAS WELL CLINTON
WAS SECRETARY OF STATE. I CARE ABOUT ALL THESE CONSTITUTIONAL
PROTECTIONS. SO ON ONE HAND, TRUMP IS A HIDEOUS MONSTER WHO
CLEARLY AND TRANSPARENTLY TALKS ABOUT HOW HE WOULD VIOLATE OUR
CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, AND IN TERMS OF CLINTON I FEEL LIKE
IT’S THE SAME IDEA BUT THERE IS NO TRANSPARENCY, IT’S ALL KIND
OF DONE IN SECRECY WITH LOTS OF FLOWERY LANGUAGE USED DURING HER
SPEECHES. SO IT IS HARD FOR ME TO BE LIKE, OH, TRUMP IS
TERRIBLE. NO, WE HAVE A HISTORY OF PEOPLE IN POWER
TAKING ADVANTAGE OF OUR FEAR AND SCALING BACK RIGHTS.

  1. all american needs to take constitution exam and even if you pass the test you should still repeat it every 5 years , so ignorant people like Trump understand what does it mean when you are American and what does the American constitution says .

  2. I think it's hilarious, and kind of petty, how the same 380 people dislike every TYT video about Trump. We get it, you're okay with a tyrant so long as it's not Hillary Clinton. But wasting your life coming back, watching every video (usually not even watching it) and disliking is childish lol. We get it, you disagree. Don't waste your time coming back and hate watching every day.

  3. Holy shit, some actual liberal views from TYT! Maybe this channel isn't completely worthless after all!

  4. Is it me, or does "The Donald" seem "low energy" in this interview? I guess Reince Priebus, the GOP and all his other baby-sitters are still figuring out the right Ritalin dosage.

  5. These Loser Donald videos are so childish, you're suppose to be the mature clear thinking side of the political spectrum and these stupid titles are really cringe.

  6. If Trump looses something and you criticize him for something that you never had, doesn't that make you even more pathetic? a neverhad?

  7. Obama has been executing (drones) americans without trials or Congress. Trump even TALKING about trials is a step up.
    Trump is the progressive here.

  8. Can't we just cut to the chase and have Donald literally take the American Flag, wrap it in the Constitution and wipe his wrinkly ass with it. That's what his policies do in effect.

  9. Was there a tactical nuke deployed on Yemen on 5/20/15 and if so, why didn't you report on this. Or did you? See link

  10. Add this to the fact Trump has supported and defended the use of torture interrogation on people suspected of terrorist involvement, "because they deserve it" as Trump said, I feel sorry for any US citizen(if Trump's elected) who is suspected of being involved with terrorists, guilty or not. Even if they're found and are innocent, they'll be facing some painful, traumatising stuff in already biased, less than humane conditions before they're released, if at all.

  11. The 6A extends to all human beings within the jurisdiction of the United States; not just US Citizens. With a few exceptions where explicitly intended for US citizens only (voting, being president, etc) the US Constitution applies to EVERYONE.

  12. I love what Ana said at the end. It is the absolute truth. And I admire her authenticity, unlike her co hosts. They are wayyyyyy to far gone on the Clinton Train, and love to demonize Donald Trump any chance they get. The reality is, we are stuck with two very unpleasant candidates, but would you rather have Clinton who will break the law and constitution all in secrecy and not be able to believe a single word she tell us citizens or have Trump who has no filter and you know what he is saying is the TRUTH… and able to trust what he tells us, if america doesnt agree with what he says we can unite and make a change from it. With clinton, it will all be corrupt, in secrecy, with no reliable way to know what is going on.. and therefore not able to protest her ways.. until a leak comes out about it, and then it's too late.

  13. Even if you don't know the constitution, it should still be a passing thought that you probably can't do that. We expect immigrants trying to legally get into the states to know the constitution by heart when most American borns don't even fuckin know it. I can honestly say I don't know large chunks of it. Studied it once in 8th grade and forgot it all soon after.

  14. Has anyone noticed that there's been a massive decline in the quality of TYT fans recently? Like they used to be funny and somewhat interesting, but now it's just the same boring "jokes" over and over again. This is a serious problem that needs to be addressed.

  15. The reason the rest of the world has a big problem with the states is that even the liberals think that only U.S. citizens have rights. All people have rights regardless of where they're born.If an american breaks the law in Ireland, the fact that he's not an E.U. citizen has no bearing on his legal right to a trial

  16. Loved Ana's view at the end on Clinton and Trump its 100% correct. She and Ben are the only reason I stay subscribed to this channel most of the other 'reporters' are becoming a bubble around Cenk that just keeps repeating what he spouts even when its wrong.

  17. Wow, TYT totally cares about due process and the Constitution if Trump is taking away rights, but if it's liberals taking away Second Amendment rights from people on a terrorist watch list, TYT doesn't give a shit.

  18. Hey "TYT" why have you not done a video on Bernie buying a "$600,00" home in vermont? third home by the way and now that the election is over and he supports Hillary and has leftover money from diner right???? just saying..

  19. when will STINK ODOR and the dumb jerk's start reporting on the millions of dollars the SAUDI'S pump into the CUNTon foundation? Oh that's right Chunk Yogurt doesn't like talking about the SAUDI'S because they give him money too..that's how AJ got him to snap.

  20. Free speech and hold guns; The only two things that trash Americans know! Great, offend the people different to you and let your child mistakenly to shoot you in the ass !!! Have fun!

  21. There is no crime committed by the individual that has not been committed by the State on a correspondingly larger scale. Which is strange when the entire basis of law is that the State is moral whereas the individual is not. Anarchy, like atheism, is not a decision but a logical conclusion.

  22. I'm puzzled by the "constitutional scholars" at The Young Turks. They are rightly critical of Trump's lack of constitutional understanding but In taking a swipe at Obama in this piece they seem to have forgotten about or are conveniently ignoring the suspension clause:
    The Suspension Clause of the United States
    Constitution specifically included the English common law procedure in
    Article One, Section 9, clause 2, which demands that "The privilege of
    the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it."

  23. the trolls have really lost some quality. be more entertaining! the Armenian genocide is getting old, spitting Jimmy is tedious, and calling them shills or Hillary supporters isn't especially funny. be more entertaining! you're the only reason I read the comments -it's not for the intelligent conversation

  24. The Bill of Rights never mentions citizenship. Foreign nationals should be guaranteed their constitutional rights just as much as citizens are.

  25. Trump can say whatever he wants as long as it sounds plausible to your average Trump voter-who have not read the U.S Constitution or know anything beyond the right to bear arms.

  26. I am so glad I am a Canadian living beside you, than again I am a Canadian living beside you, remember we are bros, don't invade us.

  27. We can change the Constitution, but there is a reason the laws in the Constitution are there and held up, over and over again. I would like to amend the Constitution to ask that anyone running for office on the national level, be able to pass a citizenship test. I think everyone should be able to, and that's what we are in school for, but I learned more as a voter, than I ever did in high school, or college.

  28. This is the kind of conversation I think people would normally get in to after a few drinks and don't remember how the law works exactly. I don't know what Trump's excuse it.

  29. So now the liberals who watch TYT don't care about Guantanamo Bay? This was one of our big issues leading up to the Obama presidency, and now TYT viewers who've been progressives for as long as the show existed, are supporting the idea of keeping it open, and forgetting the constitution. I get it, you hate Hillary. So do I. But you're being intellectually dishonest in agreeing with Trump because you hate Hillary. Grow up. Trump is a neofascist, not a Berniecrat.

  30. I disagree with this statement 100% but I must say it is not as out as some of his statements are. The supreme court has under certain circumstances, sanctioned this practice. I think the supreme court's wrong, but nonetheless they have allowed it. It's been awhile since I've read the relevant cases, but I believe the operative distinctions hinge on whether we are in "wartime" or "peacetime" and whether the detained US citizen was captured as an "enemy combatant." Of course "wartime" is defined very liberally…

  31. He's sounds like a mentally impaired child repeating the term "radical Islamic terrorism" like its his new Sesame Street word of the day and he wants a cookie as a reward.

  32. i dont understand trumps argument regarding the second amendment. what is wrong with saying semi automatic rifles are unnecessary form of protection and we need to have more strict background checks on people?? whats wrong with it?? so should i be allowed to have a rocket launcher at home?? it is an unnecessary form of protection, a smal pistol or handgun should be sufficient enough to offer protection and scare off people anyway.

  33. In the interests of context, habeas corpus has been suspended in the past, most notably by Lincoln during the Civil War.

  34. We are at war with Islamic mucks, it might be better to try them all there and leave them all there to rot forever. I would not care if they were a U.S. citizen or not. If you put them in U.S. prisons they will just spread their global jihadist ideology in our prison system. They show no mercy I would not either.

  35. Bye bye Habeas Corpus, nice knowing you because we will never see u again. U R missed. Can we at least put it on the back of milk cartons?

  36. Did anyone watch Obama explain how the fema camps are there to detain people indefinitely without a trial? Tyt why didn't you do that story?

  37. If we butcher our constitution like Trump wants to do and like Bush actually did and like it seems even Obama has or at least not done enough to defend it… and even worse use as a reason that we "fear terrorism", then the terrorists have won.

  38. Start by trying corrupt politicians. We generally say tisk tisk and then give them a golden parachute to resign. At the worst we give them a short period of house arrest. It could keep the courts busy for years.

  39. A lot of self-proclaimed freedom-loving don't-tread-on-me people in truth simply itch for a strong, strong leader and don't care one whit about the constitution or the rights enshrined therein.

  40. trump supporters understanding of things like the constitution and international law and been American is zero.Trump and his supporters don't understand that there giving Isis what they want .

  41. Innocent until proven guilty is just too politically correct. That's why we're losing.Punishment needs to being at first suspicion! If we just start torturing traffic violators we'll have the safest greatest highways in the world!

  42. "War on terror"? They won on 9/12 as soon as we became TERRORIZED into suspending OUR Constitution. RE: Patriot Act.

  43. The weakening of habeas corpus in any country where it exists is something that every citizen of that country should worry about and fight against, because weakening it is such a slippery slope. Once an idea so basic to human rights is weakened, it can effect all of us. It can allow governments to get to the point where they have the power to just round up people and detain them indefinitely for pretty much any reason without charge.

  44. I don't think TYT mentioned the biggest problem specifically: This would enable Trump to send anyone to Guantanamo. Anyone. All he has to do is make up a suspicion. Political opponents, journalists, you name it.

  45. Let me explain why your idiots.

    1. Under the Geneva and Hague Conventions, combatants must wear uniforms.
    2. Under the Geneva and Hague Conventions, anyone brandishing a weapon in a time war is considered a combatant.
    3. Under the Geneva and Hague Conventions, targeting civilians is illegal.
    4. Under the Geneva and Hague Conventions intentional murder of prisoners of war, you know those soldiers they've beheaded and set fire?

    They should be tried for war crimes and hung, or released, depending on the evidence. There's a reason, we don't consult you morons when it comes to war. You're idiots, more mouth than brains.

  46. When the heck have leftists ever cared about our constitution. They sure don't know much about it. Obama claimed he did, and he was right. He sytematically tried to dismantle it.
