WOW! Obama’s Cancel Culture Call-Out, Harley Quinn, Twitter vs Facebook Election Controversy & More

  1. I can't believe a families home can be destroyed by police and they don't have to help pay to rebuild it. How can this be justified in any way? I would fight this to the end.

  2. I don't think the police did anything wrong, but the city should absolutely be responsible for the damage they caused. It would be different if they raided the suspects house, but this family had nothing to do with the crime!!!

  3. So I can't comment on the city liability with the damages. Although I would tend to think that what the police did should be considered an abuse of power. The way they went about it was just a little ridiculous. The kid got out. It didn't seem like anyone was in danger in the house. Why did they need to employ the measures that they did with absolutely zero liability for the consequences.
    That said, there are some pieces of information that are missing. First, was the house properly insured? If the house was appraised for $580k, that value would include the value of the land, which is still the property of the owner. Based on the difference between what insurance paid and the appraised value, I would think that there is an under insured situation. I know land value in my area can be high, but $235k seems high. Also, if they were given $345k, why did they need a $600k mortgage to rebuild? Did it really cost $945k? Did they build a bigger house, more upgraded features? How did it compare to the destroyed home? Perhaps some of the insurance money went to living while the house was being built, but the numbers presented don't add up. Again, I think that there is something wrong with what the police did and the court ruling, but I also think that the owner was under insured, which is unfortunate.

  4. There’s this “YouTube controversy” I wish phil would cover! I know he’s a big advocate for fair use and the infringement of fair use and a channel called Holocene just had their song blatantly stolen by an Australian masked singer I just saw the side by side of the songs and OOF it’s the exact same song

  5. I have my problems with Obama (was pretty weak to fight for progressive things, wars/drone actions, various typical old neo-liberal policies, whistleblowing issues, etc), but he is 100% correct with that stance on cancel culture.

  6. Lech should be suing his insurance company for paying out $345k on a $580k house…..I don't understand why the ins company is not giving full value of loss to it's customer?

  7. Have you thought about taking on the Onision topic? After the Chris Hansen interviews on this subject I think it's pretty obvious the demented behavior of this YouTuber.

  8. I don't know about the cancel culture thing. It seems like when people genuinely learn and grow from their mistakes the woke attacks don't come as strong, and they mostly slide off.

    But sometimes something someone did, and the response to it, shows they are kinda bad people. It's all down to individual cases, but generally common sense is enough to tell the difference.

  9. Is there a GoFundMe for home owner? I'd like to at least donate for court costs. "Life over property" or not, they absolutely destroyed their house without any repercussions. What a shitty system.

  10. Cancel culture doesn't exist. Who has actually been cancelled? Most of them bounce back. Watch the SomeMoreNews episode about cancel culture.

  11. Obama sure did love progressives when he was pretending to be one to get elected. Now he's mad that people are sick of neo-liberals like himself, Hillary and Biden so he has to bitch about it. Reality is Obama deported more illegal immigrants and killed more people with drones than Trump. He made racist sentencing for crack via coke 32-1 while Trump made it 1-1. I'm no Trump supporter and I voted for Obama but these are the facts.

  12. FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS. That's more disrespectful and, honestly, downright disgusting than offering zero dollars for completely destroying the man's property. The offering of any sum of money is, in itself, an outright admission of guilt from the City. Plain and simple. They know they should be at fault, but chose to take the legal cop-out (pun intended).

    I'm truly shocked.

  13. This is so asinine. How can a family be expected to pay for something they never even knew could happen. The police destroying their home to catch a criminal who couldn't get away. I mean. What? Insurance shouldn't even have to cover it and they're a problem too. Why wasn't insurance paying the full value or cost to replace it? That makes no sense either.

  14. Okay, first of all, those cops and the city can screw themselves for not trying to help that family after the cops fucked over their entire house. How is basically blowing up a family’s house, who has a FUCKING KID, seen as legally allowed?? I swear I’m starting to lose faith in people faster than usual. Now that I’ve finished this rant, love your videos and I really hope that family get justice and the cops/the city get their asses handed to them. Keep up the good work de Franco.😊☺️

  15. destruction of private property, use of excessive force, this wasnt a militant suspect, there was no need to demolish lech's home, they could have evacuated the neighbors and long wait him out cut water, gas and electricity to house, without water 3 days without food 7 sleep deprivation and they could stink gas him out at no point was this a hostage or a siege necessity, PURE EXCESSIVE FORCE, this siege tactics are last option necessity when lifes are in extreme danger this is not the case of this cop evasion, im not against the cops doing there job nor in the side of the criminal, im on the side on the property and household owner, this cannot become normal acceptable cop protocol, there is zero need for militant siege tactics of an ordinary barricaded suspect. even strategic sleep gas could have prevented the damage to the property, in rotc and armed guard we where trained to always use the minimal force necessity, fatal force or collateral damage was always deemed beyond acceptable standard practice. we have a right to property a protection against quartering of troops, and right to fair equity for our property, they deemed the home collateral damage and excessively demolished it without any regard to the owners right nor any intent to repay for damages, there was a complete violation of lech's rights of property, they destroyed personal property, and AGAIN THEY HAVE DAMEGE THE TRUST BETWEEN THE PEOPLE AND THE POLICE, THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO PROTECT AND SERVE.
    if I where a lawyer the suspect could even sue for excessive force, its a clear factual win.
    cops and all security must exhaust all minimal options before EXCESSIVE MILITARY TACTICS ARE REQUIRED, there is zero reason to rush a barricaded solitary barricaded suspect, there was obvious excessive force and mismanagement of the arrest and apprehension. THE CONDEMNED HOUSE IS PROOF.

  16. Hey Phillip cant you give the channel Food Wishes some love? he has been making food on here for more then 10 years an is actually a chief.

  17. Phil wtf did you send me to today. That secret link was WACK — kinda in a good way? Idk still processing what I just watched

  18. As someone who lives near Denver, I'm not surprised by the cops fucking up someone's house and the local government not giving a fuck. I hope his case makes it to the supreme court.

  19. wow as a child I always thought the USA would be awesome to live in, how could you say you live in the land of the free if there's a chance the police will just blow your house up and leave you in thousands of dollars in debt. here in the Netherlands, everything would have been covered by insurance or the government. (although we do have a problem with tons of low life shitters abusing the shit out of the system by getting free money for no good reason.)

  20. sounds like he didn't have adequate insurance coverage on the house if he only got $345k and it's worth $600k+. that's the risk you take paying lower premiums for less coverage hombre

  21. Why do we hold social media platforms to a standard that we don't impose onto mainstream media outlets. If Twitter knows it shouldn't run political ads then so should FOX, MSNBC, CNN.

  22. Well, at least they captured the man that will have to spend 100 years in prison alive and well. Who cares that an innocent family had their home demolished in the process! /s … The city should be bending over backwards to help this family out. They were WAY too overkill on that arrest.

  23. Holy hell. To me it seems like the police used extreme excess force for one man. They should not have had to destroy a house to get ONE MAN. ONE. I would like to know who made the decision to destroy the house and what there reasons were.

  24. Michelle discusses “white flight” after getting Jussie Smollette’s 14 grand jury felony indictments for FAKE RACIAL HATE CRIME that cost Chicago tax payers MILLIONS off the hook & BOTH Obamas (STILL “LIVE IN”) HANDLER(JARETT) COST ROSEANNE BARR HER #1 TRUMP SUPPORT TV SHOW FOR A NOT RACIST TWEET. AND (THE KING OF “WOKE”) BARRACK IS SIMULTANEOUSLY CRITICIZING “WOKE CANCEL CULTURE” FOR FULL COGNITIVE DISSIDENCE!

  25. Give him the money 5th amendment should apply here they saved life’s but could have ended one in debt if it was a different situation it’s a terrible president to set in the courts

  26. Okay, fair enough, the police were mainly focused in saving lives than property damage. However, because of what they did they made these peoples lives miserable because they can't live in their house anymore. Like what the fuck? That's terrible.

  27. I know people who live in greenwood village and they tell me the city is run by a bunch of penny pinching a-holes. Very rich area run by pricks who'll try their best to milk every penny or save every dollar in any situation.

  28. No in terms of cancel culture while I generally think it’s bad we still have hold people accountable for their bullshit. If someone does say something offensive learn from your mistakes and move on. Instead of just “canceling” them. Tell them respectfully what they did or said that offended you and hopefully they can learn from that.

  29. its a community benefit to apprehend a criminal, it should also be community responsibility to pay for the house that was damaged to apprehend that criminal. aka, I'm fine with taxpayer dollars going towards that man's house. But the waste of money to try and weasel out of paying him? nah

  30. Do people actually try to get facts and learn something from these YouTube dipshits? Lord, has America devolved or what?

    I came to dipshit DeFranco's video because he had one talking about he is a big government boot licker. I sure hope the scumbag is not like other big government lovers and instead at least pays some taxes for his big government.

    Are the "woke" people supporting the cancel culture? I haven't kept up with what is PC with the people who have nothing better to do than watch YouTube ranters. Big government loves your cancel culture and fully supports it with their pre-approved hit list – the $EX Offender Registries. Now there's some hate we can all get behind!

  31. Destroyed home to apprehend suspect. Let's play this out for a moment — if the city and police were compelled by court order to reimburse this man three or four hundred thousand dollars for his home, what precedent does that set? The next time an armed suspects breaks into a home does the mayor call the police chief and say "Chief, the city is pretty broke, you're gonna have to catch that suspect without doing any damage to the house because we can't afford it." As much as I think that what happened to him sucks, I think there's a bigger picture to look at. First of all I think the insurance should have covered it, and maybe the city should have made up the difference, but at the same time, this can't be the first time this has happened and there must be legal precedent somewhere.

  32. I'm really fucking pissed YouTube unsubscribed me from you because I've missed like 5 episodes thinking you were on vacation 🙁

  33. Phil,
    I do think that the police department should have to pay to fix any damage that was caused to the house and compensate the family for a rental while they are waiting for the house to be repaired.

    Though I believe that the $345,000 that the insurance company gave them is more than enough to repair the home. In fact $345,000 is more than enough to build a new home. His $600k home value is based off of his property and his home together and that is the market value not the actual cost of replacement.

    Allot of the damage shown in the photos of the home are after a construction company has come in and cleared debris from the house. The house it self just needs some of the framing replaced along with new windows, doors, and some electrical and plumbing work. At most $150k-$180k in repairs and that’s if you have some crazy expensive company doing it.

    To do the siding of a new house or just redo siding on an existing house Hardi Plank which is the best siding runs anywhere from $0.50 to $5.00 a square foot depending on what options you want. So to redo the house at most would be in the $15k to $20k and that is if the house is huge.
    After you take all the old siding off then you can see how much damage is done to any of the studs (2”x4”x8’) & exterior (2”x6”x8’). Those run about $2.75 each and for the bigger ones $6.00 each. Reframe the windows and buy new windows at $225.00 to $800.00 each depending on the sizes they house didn’t look like it had any crazy big windows. All in all to really fix the house he is only looking at $80,000.00 in repairs.

    He is looking for a payday, and it appears the insurance company already gave him the money to fix it.

    Now as far as personal property is concerned that should be replaced to if it was damaged.

  34. Obviously cancel culture has an impact if the FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES is talking about it.

    People have the right to support or not support something/someone for whatever reason. If enough people aren’t supporting something, then companies will pivot to something else that makes them money. This has been going on long before it was given a trendy name.

  35. “You’re welcome, and I’m sorry”

    Honestly I’m trying to figure how I can use this info to make folk awkward

  36. If I understand correctly, the constitution applies to any instance between citizens and government agencies. Police is a government agency, therefore shouldn't their use of the house for doing their job be covered by the fifth amendment?

  37. Regarding Obama's speech. I think he was on point that social media has caused heightened rhetoric between people especially in politics. However, to say that its mostly young people is a little in accurate from my experiences in real life and social media. But still great speech regardless.

  38. Bahahahaha the men's costume searches being Jean Grey etc. are not so bad, but the women's – MICHEAL MYERS, then Harry Potter and Spiderman – kind of all over the place girls.

  39. Good people have flaws, and bad people love their children, the world is a grey place and if all you do is cast stones, you're not helping to make anything better. I am so glad to hear someone being wise again for a change, rather than woke. Obama has sense.

    "The police should put life before property" they said, after making a family homeless. After doing something to someone, that had anyone else done, would BE A CRIME. The concept that police can do anything they want and harm the lives of anyone around them, so long as someone else is doing it too, and the police didn't start it… That's insane. I too have always been under the impression that police do not actually have the authority to destroy a house or car and get away with it. This public statement that we've all been wrong is going to do nothing but damage the bad repuration of modern police even further. I don't want people to start to fear calling an officer for help, because that officer might toss a grenade into the house to solve things easily, rather than solve things correctly.

  40. Let me tell you about the CO govt not only destroying property but causing a situation that lead to death & not paying out a dime. My uncle lived on a mountain home in Littleton. During a drought they set a 'controlled burn'. I as a fire fighter knownthe conditions in which this was done was an extremely stupid ass idea. Well, surprise, surprise the fire got away from them. They had some one come to the door and tell them they had less then 20mins to leave. They lost EVERYTHING!!!! 2 of their neighbors died not being able to get out in time. Do you know what they gave them?? $0, zip, zilch, nada, nothing. They were forced to move into a small apartment. There was some issue with insurance since it was a govt set fire. They didn't get even a 1/3 of what they would have needed to rebuild. They wound up leaving their home of 30yrs to move to NC. Is everybody in the govt high out there or something??

  41. Police State.. wait until it happens to one of them. I am sure if the police chiefs house was involved he would have been compensated.

  42. I love Obama and he's right.
    Also, you can't just DESTROY a family's house and then walk away like it's nothing. If you needed to DESTROY the house to get ONE MAN out, then you're either incompetent or you didn't do your job properly. Owners of the house should receive proper compensation for the troubles their suffered even though they had absolutely no fault at all.

  43. Imo, it's not up to these major companies like google Facebook and Twitter to fact check what these politicians are saying. It's up to us. The people. We need to watch debates, watch and go to town halls. Listen to what these canidates are saying to us and vote on it. Paid ads or not, it's up to us to be informed about what is going on in our country. Part of the reason shows and channels like this are so valuable.

  44. Could somebody-or everybody- tell the city of Greenwood and every judicial power involded in that case to eat shit? OkayThanksBye.

  45. Its upto the indevidual to fact check if their candidate is a fraud. No one elses YOURS. It is censorship to block stupid adds… Cause it never stops at just the bad adds…. Take responsiblity for yourself for once.

  46. Good for Obama. Right left or center we should all agree that the screeching disingenuous censorious Twitter mob needs to be ignored or ridiculed.
