  1. Say what you mean, General. WE know what you mean. Go ahead and let it out. Your book is basically “Thoughts and Prayers”

  2. Smedley Butler on Interventionism
    — Excerpt from a speech delivered in 1933, by Major General Smedley Butler, USMC.

    War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.

    I believe in adequate defense at the coastline and nothing else. If a nation comes over here to fight, then we’ll fight. The trouble with America is that when the dollar only earns 6 percent over here, then it gets restless and goes overseas to get 100 percent. Then the flag follows the dollar and the soldiers follow the flag.

    I wouldn’t go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket.There isn’t a trick in the racketeering bag that the military gang is blind to. It has its “finger men” to point out enemies, its “muscle men” to destroy enemies, its “brain men” to plan war preparations, and a “Big Boss” Super-Nationalistic-Capitalism.

    It may seem odd for me, a military man to adopt such a comparison. Truthfulness compels me to. I spent thirty- three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle- man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.

    I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all the members of the military profession, I never had a thought of my own until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.

    I helped make Mexico, especially Tampico, safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefits of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-1912 (where have I heard that name before?). I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China I helped to see to it that Standard Oil went its way unmolested.During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. Looking back on it, I feel that I could have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents

  3. When it comes to politicians in the U.S. this is what you get when you have career politicians serving who really have very little experience in anything other then 'running for government office" The prez election is one of the most backwards corrupt elections as in the last 5 elections…the person with the fewest votes actually won. An election decided by the supreme court where the argument by bush was literally if all the votes are counted it will do him hard (aka he will lose) so don't count….then on political lines that supreme court handed the prez to bush….since then, ramped up more endless war, and almost collapsing the entire economy.

  4. Mad dog!. Thanks for stepping up to the plate.

  5. Mattis is not "Mad Dog" he is a Wise Guy but "The Donaldtrumpi" is the real MAD DOG now he Friends with "The Rocket Boy".

  6. You do realize General, the cbs msm and all the rest hate you, and your only a time slot and a door to trump bashing , why would you go.to the communists.

  7. General , what happened to you, you left and ran right to the communists, ie msm

  8. All the MSM tried to get him to say some thing bad about the DON and they couldn't ?????
    Another failure of the MSM ????

  9. Not when it stimulates thought. He might mean maybe factionalism or maybe tribalism or maybe book sales.

  10. Mr. Jim Mattis, is an understated example of "all for Pentagon", ove 800 military bases are maintained outside the US and for what reasons…trash the money away…

  11. Mathis isn't fooling anyone. He's afraid to speak the truth about his time at the white house. Everyone knows about Trump made fun of Mathis. He can criticize Bush and Obama yet afraid to say anythoing about Trump. Coward!

  12. Mattis is an evil idiot

  13. RAINBOW NATIONALISM IS THE FUTURE OF TRUMPS AMERICA!!! PEOPLE OF ALL COLORS UNITED FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF PROTECTING FELLOW AMERICANS OVER ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. TRUMP/PENCE 2020!!! ALL AMERICANS KNOW THAT SEALING OUR BORDER TO STOP ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION IS THE ONLY WAY TO STOP THE HOMELESSNESS AND POVERTY THAT EXISTS TODAY IN AMERICA. Trump is a Shoo-in!!!! Millions of Americans of all races and religions know the simple numbers, they see the millions of homeless & poor that are already disenfranchised by illegal immigrants taking the bulk of our American Welfare Budget. Afro-Americans will especially be voting Trump this time. They are a practical people who know that Reparations will only come in social services that are well stocked financially. And they won't be if we don't seal our borders.!!!!

  14. General Mattis? "On 9 /11 we were reminded of that (terrorism threat) in this town, when over 3,000 people were murdered." Ilhen "ISIS" Omar?: "Some people did something." Yo, 2020 matters!

  15. Mattis has ended his career with a whimper at the hands of a russia puppet. Sad.

  16. Matt is was a puppet for the !military industrial complex. He deserves no praise and is devoid of real honor. Only the idiots that adore the likes of Chris Kyle would salute this death dealer

  17. Mattis you may have been a man at one point but your true cowardice shined through when you abandoned your country in defense of this con man. You have no integrity whatsoever at this point so shut up and disappear. Dont try to talk like you are in some position to lecture us on leadership because you sir are no leader. Your silence and failure to openly stand up to Trump says all we need to know.

  18. in fact the greatest threat to democracy is no choice.. the 1% choose who gets entered into the cesspool we choose our candidates from. then the media ensures their turds win.

  19. horse manure.. the greatest threat to democracy is wealth inequity. people so rich that they can and do buy our politicians. the second greatest risk to our so called democracy is secrecy.. which is as JFK said something that is not condusive to an open and free democracy. the truth is needed to empower the very meaning and value of our votes. without the truth the vote is based on misinformation lies and propaganda.. another threat is "super delegates" who more often than not decide who runs for president not the individual voters. Money needs to be removed from politics. and teams of FBI or secret service should be assigned to each congress , scotus.. and govt top offices. where they would cover the govt official 24/7.. be privy to everything that govt official was.. present at every meeting.. their one job to find, charge an d convict corrupt govt officials. their secondary job to guard them from extortion. and lastly the closure rules.. which not part of the constitution.. prevent the passage of simple majority legislation. blocking results the people want with a created artificial excuse.. changing the intent of the constitution from a simple majority to a super majority to do anything. giving politicians an excuse to do NOTHING except collect their fat paychecks and perks. closure rules are a scam.

  20. CBS is fake news

  21. Спокойно …Саас не верить ….по этому сегодня не дала подтверждения ….снаха у нас ещё зелёная …… Вспомни свои слова ко мне она ещё не готова ……но Ты меня хотел …..спасибо Пакистану ……. Помнишь я тебе 7 лет назад сказала ….не спрашивай …. Я не умею , врать ….тогда была наша безопасность ….. Теперь ты все понял .

  22. When you elect a baby to lead, you'll never get to leadership. Duh.

  23. Mattis couldn't say anything complimentary about Trumpty Dump. Shocker.

  24. I'm surprised Gen Mattis didnt claim rogue FBI agents who entraped him in a phony investigation never gave him his Miranda rights then bankrupted him with court costs and attorney fees he was targeted simply because he worked for Trump simple as that and that is the big tragedy here.

  25. Time to roll up our sleeves,then he resigned to write a book,this guys are joke.???

  26. Mad dog indeed,A dog is not a dog if it can't bark.

  27. These people are just trying to make the president look bad or for the Sec Def Mattis, to say simmering negative about the president. What a shameful act of immature bias.

  28. This man is wise. The world must listen to him.

  29. Typical miltary kick-back artist…Mattis.would sell out anybody for a defense contract….with a lisp,lol. Call sign hypocrite. Mattis SPEAKS. ? Mattis breaks his wind WITH A BOOK, and he needed HELP to write it…..low i.q.

  30. Now is not the time for mild mannered musings about Abraham Lincoln quotes.

  31. He spoke like a future leader making the point thank you

  32. This is merely a book plug, nothing more or less.
    6:59 Is spot on.

  33. Jim Mattis: Low IQ races is biggest threat to democracy

  34. I don't see divisiveness as a problem at all. It's a good thing. It only becomes a problem when one side tried to force it's will on the other. Then there is war, but event that is not a bad thing, because peace follows. This is a natural cycle.

  35. Yes …he's correct "marina is dumb"

  36. The media is the problem. We need to hold them accountable.


  38. Yet he stood by Trump when Trump was destroying the country by calling anyone who opposed or criticized him as an enemy.

  39. He was a general under terrible/evil administrations and he’s given way to much credit. He’s not a good person in my opinion

  41. Mattis was NOT, I repeat, was NOT the Secretary of Defense, but the Secretary of OFFENSE

  42. But, but, but we are NOT a democracy ! The fact most of you people THINK it is underscores the REAL problem : ignorance

  43. Corporate Interests are the biggest threat to Democracy

  44. General Mattis is not going to be made out a fool or told to say something he did not mean in his recent book. He is very straight forward in what he states.
    He is correct in saying that the idea of ISIS is what needs to be destroyed (and without saying it we all know what he means).
    For hosts (such as in this interview) to try and put words in his mouth he did not say will not work.

  45. By the logic he used to deflect questions it wouldn’t make any difference if the commander in Chief behaves like Nero or Caligula or Kim Jung Un! His stance is, ‘“I am a military man and will always support the commander in Chief” even if he is a dangerous incompetent lunatic!

  46. I am so disappointed about Mattis inability to say the way he feels about Trump. I have never seen a military man mastering the art of speaking without saying anything substantive. Apparently he wrote a book just to make money without actually saying what’s in his heart and mind! This guy is not a real military man but a conservative republican politician! Great disappointment!
