Colin Powell, the first Black US secretary of state, has died from complications from Covid-19, his family said on Facebook. He was 84.

His family said: “General Colin L. Powell, former U.S. Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, passed away this morning due to complications from Covid 19. We have lost a remarkable and loving husband, father, grandfather and a great American. We want to thank the medical staff at Walter Reed National Medical Center for their caring treatment.”

George Bush said: “Laura and I are deeply saddened by the death of Colin Powell. He was a great public servant, starting with his time as a soldier during Vietnam.

“Many Presidents relied on General Powell’s counsel and experience. He was National Security Adviser under President Reagan, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under my father and President Clinton, and Secretary of State during my Administration.

“He was such a favorite of Presidents that he earned the Presidential Medal of Freedom – twice.

“He was highly respected at home and abroad. 

“And most important, Colin was a family man and a friend. Laura and I send Alma and their children our sincere condolences as they remember the life of a great man.”

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said that “the world lost one of the greatest leaders that we have ever witnessed. A man who was respected around the globe.”

Ari Fleischer said Powell had “such an uplifting approach to his job and life. Always laughing, always happy – he had a hard job, but he always carried it out with a can-do, upbeat approach.”

“He treated everyone he met with respect and kindness. I will miss him,” Fleischer added.

    I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this specific problem and it does indeed present us some fodder for thought. Nonetheless, because of everything that I have experienced, I really trust as the actual feed-back pile on that people today keep on issue and don’t get started upon a tirade associated with some other news du jour. Anyway, thank you for this fantastic point and while I can not really go along with this in totality, I value the perspective.

Someone needs to tell Jessica that Brandon’s jobs numbers are still a joke considering how many businesses folded and how many people either quit or got fired due to his mandate for this jab!!!;

The military has a set retirement age and politicians should also. Or if they do insist on staying around like a bad smell they must pass a cognitive test;

I’d like to hear Pelosi and Biden jointly discuss anything. I’ll bet in an hour there wouldn’t be a single coherent statement;

Cruella never actually killed anyone. Skeletor, on the other hand, is responsible for the deaths of thousands;

Yep. Wow! She’s in a sad state as well as Poopy Pants. Couldn’t understand what she was stammering about;

Well put.

Absolutely correct. Defund the Federal Government.

I disagree; continue to fund only proven patriotic government with receipts of actual progress/support of the American people!;

Defund the Democrats before they destroy the USA;

She’s correct, it would be a whole lot better for us if this government was shut down;

She is correct. Frankly, the country is in greater danger whenever the government is up and running. They do less damage that way;

Also, she derided the infusion of Critical Race Theory in schools and companies, saying it is wrong to teach that one’s skin color predetermines one to be either an oppressor or the oppressed. “It’s Marxist,” she said. “It’s socialist. It is created by people who want to foster hate and division.”

Burn, Murder, Loot are Marxists. Did you read their manifesto? Anybody who supports those domestic terrorists need locking up;

Alveda King is a icon in the civil rights movement, it’s unfortunate that so many liberals are manipulated by cultural Marxism and it’s ideology that is destroying this country from within and intentionally from globalist oligarchs who fund this movement;

She didn’t like this question.

he never ever said to inject bleach. She is such a lying piece of crap;

Anyone who saw Trump talking about bleach should know it was a joke. Do these people not fact-check anything? Notice every time Psaki is asked about Biden she always refers back to Trump. “Oh, the previous administration” or “the former president did this”. This whole administration is odious;

It wasn’t a joke. He was talking about intravenous peroxide therapy which is actual medical treatment. He specifically said disinfectant when referring to peroxide which is a true statement;

DOOCY!!! Why do you keep asking open-ended questions when you know her response is just to talk shit?;

Twisting Trump’s words and spreading more misinformation again Peppermint Patty!;

Trump never told people to inject bleach. The media did. He was referring to an experimental form of treatment. He cut through all the red tape (warp speed) to get the vaccines ready in record time. The same vaccines that Biden/Harris said they’d never take (if Trump made them) and that they’re now claiming all the credit for. lying sacks of crap, the lot of them!: Followers’ Comments.

Been hearing this for weeks TED. Get R DUN!;

Exactly, when you identify a problem make a plan to fix the problem. Bring Fauci up on charges since you identified crimes committed. You have the evidence, now take it to the next level. We Americans want to see people held accountable in Washington DC. We were told that “No one is above the law” by the democrats and yet, they continue to break the law and no one seems to have the spine to hold them accountable;

Cruz wants Garland, a known criminal (because he lied to Congress), to investigate and prosecute Fauci for lying to Congress? Well, this should work out fine;
