"Those of you who've been with this program for a relatively long period of time I bet your smiling every now and then when you listen to radio or you watch TV because things we've discussed over the last nearly 20 years and things I've written about from on book to the next Are now being mainstreamed Mainstreamed Not with the big propaganda media But in conservative media Many years ago right after liberty and tyranny I wrote a book called America topia It was a tough book But I talked about utopianism and the use of utopianism It's impossibility but its use As an argument As a fraudulent policy To attack human and institutional imperfections in a free society And I walk through the history of utopianism Whether was Plato's republic And on down the line And I called the book a mere topia So you hear people today talking about utopians Dystopias There was all presented in that book Why oh boy how many years ago was that It's got to be ten or 11 years ago

Marxist History Is Repeating Itself

"All of this is just indicative of how Marxism is playing out. If you've read American Marxism by Mark Levin, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Chapter six, Chapter one. It really describes how these institutions in America have just been hijacked. Write everything. I mean, everything has been hijacked. Nothing is the way it looks. Everything is some sort of, uh, to reference the Soviet Union like politburo and these and these ministers of propaganda, and they're in line force mint, federal law enforcement and I support law enforcement. You know, I actually was a volunteer cop in Jersey and for for like, two years, and my brothers served both of them. 20 years, NYPD have nothing but respect for law enforcement, But it's Sad to say. At the federal level. We've seen it time and again. There are some bad apples that are Trying to spoil the bunch. And that's just not there. I mean, we see the same thing in the media. We see the same thing in in the schools. You've got teachers that come in with very altruistic, altruistic. Excuse me, Um Rationale of why they want to become a teacher, and then they get there. And that is all kind of, um, usurped by the unions and them saying No, no, you've got to do this and you've got to teach this and we're going to do this and parents. I don't want to put this on the parents, but the parents have a role. Have been taken a back seat, some of them because they don't know better and some of them because they're too busy because they're trying to make a way for their family. So when we look at all of that stuff It's like, man. We're looking at the same thing that we saw. In our own history. A 20 years ago. And it's happening right before our very eyes the violence in the streets of last summer, we've seen that play out.

A 20-Year Megadrought Threatens Hydropower in the West

"A twenty year. Mega drought in the west is threatening hydropower. For millions of people so the federal government is taking emergency action it sending water from other reservoirs to lake powell to help. Keep the power turbines. They're spinning. here's michael. Elizabeth sack is from colorado public radio at elk creek marina. People wait in line to back their trailers into the water to pull their boats out. And some like walter. Slut cough are frustrated. Resumes legua up and down many times. But we're not happy with it this year. Of course because we're all getting kicked out early and we pay for slips for the season. Blue mesa is colorado's largest reservoir. It's already less than thirty percent full. And now it's being forced to sacrifice more water to send to lake powell eric. Logan is head of operations at elk. Creek marina he had to shut down six weeks early because of the low water levels. It's a big hit for us for sure. There's a bunch of employees. That doctor would be employed into october and suddenly they're out looking for employment in middle of august. The deepening drought in the west has dealt a double blow to blue mesa this summer with climate change there's less snowpack and warmer temperatures increase. Evaporation so less water is making it into the colorado river and reservoirs like blue mesa and now the federal government is taking water from this lake into other reservoirs. If we were full it wouldn't be that big deal but since we're already so low and we're barely hanging on by our fingertips on trying to stay open. You take eight feet of water and suddenly we got shut the doors and move everything out to deeper water and there's nothing we can do about it. Lake powell on the utah. Arizona border hit its lowest level on record earlier this summer. Logan worries the reservoir will need even more water from blue mesa. If the drought doesn't improve the question is are they going to release whatever we get. That would become a very big problem for everyone around here. Blue may sat and the other reservoirs were built in the nineteen sixties for times of drought. It's a bank of water that the states can tap when they need. It says john macleod. A water lawyer in colorado. The water always goes to lake. Powell and this release is part of the plan. And it's using the reservoirs for one of their intended purposes

Some of the kids who were killed in Afghanistan towards the end of our occupation there were born after 9 11. They had always lived in a world where we were fighting the Taliban and ISIS and occupying Afghanistan. They didn't know what was like beforehand. Those of us living all remember what happened on that Tuesday morning. And how our lives change and adjusted, and how we all came together for a brief moment. I did a lot of activities with my radio station back then. So I was out and about amongst a lot of people. And we all came together, and now 20 years later, we're further apart than ever before. Somebody said the reason we're all fighting each other right now is we have no common enemy. 20 years ago on a Tuesday we had a common enemy, and now today, the enemies within.

"Can you also talk about just first responders in general on nine eleven as this episode airs this day where remembering people that went into the conflict and went into the fire and went into try and sacrifice themselves for a broader purpose. That kind of commitment to duty which i feel. We're losing in our country right now. Can you talk about that in your own personal life and how that's a value you and your at your company really tried to embody Nine eleven in the actual day has burned into my mental psyche as it has with millions of other people as a medic and the training that we've gone through and i correlate it back with judy of august october. Twenty seventeen in las vegas. Your training kicks in and the firefighters. That i know that i that i revere and and it's not just firefighters. It's all of our law enforcement my my belief on this and the little things that drives minute in coffee is these are the true minute. These are the true american heroes that have sacrificed so much per. so many. How many other professions besides our military and our first responders actively put that uniform on and go out and put themselves into harm way arms. They and sacrifice what what other people can't even fathom in me. That is what the enemy of a minute then. It's whether we're standing up and fighting the tyrants seventy three seventy four seventy five seventeen seventy sex or modern day blazing into that fire and rescue those children or or just coming up and within the law enforcement end the medic community and i think the first responded community is getting a bad rap.

Ten people bruce eagles in supervised made it out. He did not. You know it's been really tough because it's a bittersweet memory of my dad. He had every opportunity that he could've building. It's almost you know the selfish part of me wonders. Why didn't he just get out. But then now the proud part of us is you know he really did. I hear that day. The eagleton's are among eleven hundred families who share an unwanted bond. Their loved ones died at the world trade center but have not been formally identified. We've never recovered him Not not even a trace. Many of the human remains recovered in the wreckage were damaged by jet fuel and fire but the new york city office of the chief medical examiner made a solemn promise to identify as many as possible in the last two decades dna technology has improved and forensic scientists are still trying.

I want to talk about tonight. But our own mark. Murray compared nbc news polling. He found that after nine eleven seventy-two percent said the country was headed in the right direction. As of august only twenty nine percent say the country is headed in the right direction. Wonder was it an illusion to think that in times of crisis americans have always come together or have we as a people really changed that much since nine eleven. I think our system has basically broken down in the last twenty years in a way that no longer do we. Are we in a position to depend on the kind of unity for instance that we saw after pearl harbor with franklin roosevelt in nineteen forty

"People. Don't freak out about this language it's relates to the incident and there's broad authority related the incident it does not relate to all terrorism every place. 'cause we're just talking about al qaeda who did this and the taliban who have harbored them right. Nope not necessarily gregory johnson again over time. What's happened is there's been this other sort of catchall category that has been read into these sixty words even though it appears nowhere in these sixty words and that catch all category is associated forces associated forces. Yeah what we've been calling these sixty first and sixty second words. Russell don't it. Is we define the enemy as kaieda taliban and associated forces. It's a whole different ballgame. Yeah so when you read those those all those words it did not include the phrase associated forces is nowhere in the text. So where does why could people site. Something that isn't in your. This is one of the enduring mysteries of this so the earliest example that we can find of those. Two words is in two thousand and four memo from deputy secretary of defense paul wolfowitz. He finds the enemy as al-qaeda taliban and associated forces. But the truth is it may have just been there from the beginning. Because according to ben witness from the brookings institution there is a concept in the laws of war. Called co belligerency. It's the idea that if you're at war with person a and person b. is on personnel is side in the war you're also legally at war with person. B makes perfect sense if think in traditional war terms because like we're at war with germany. Italy joins their side so by default were at war with italy. too right. so just transpose. That here if we're at war with this group called al-qaeda and a certain set of groups that aren't them join the war on al-qaeda side then you are legally at war with them. If you don't think about that too hard is crystal-clear but then the question that has arisen over time is how broad do you make that that circle because the problem obviously is. We're not talking about nation states anymore. We're talking about groups show okay. How close does the link to al-qaeda and the people who carried out september eleventh have to be so if you have someone who's connected to someone who's connected to someone who's connected to someone who is connected to september eleven is that enough or is it only three leagues or can you be an associated associate. Now we can't exactly know how. Broadly the obama and administrations have defined those words. We'll talk about why in a second but you just have to look at the news and you could see that we started with a war that was in afghanistan and then spread to a lot of different places pakistan. Libya somalia yemen. Yeah and in yemen. There's a lot of debate in a lot of discussion about like. Is this legal. Does this have anything to do with september eleventh anymore. Because now the group in yemen al- qaeda in the arabian peninsula which is a group that that was first formed in two thousand nine. They have their own hierarchy in their own structure in. It's not clear how in what fashion they take orders from either osama bin laden while he was still alive for now i am another one. Hurry so does this make them an associated for so does it make them part of al qaeda the answer at least on good morning everyone. It is friday. September thirtieth two thousand eleven mark down on your calendars denver. Thirty twenty seven seemed to be. Yes when the us assassinated two members of the group this was not confirmed yet but it could very well have been a us predator drone strike. That is a us. Government attack presented put all this in context between two thousand and two and two thousand fourteen. According to some estimates there have been about sixty five drone strikes in yemen killing about four hundred people so much hinges on how you define those words so much is in the definition. I asked the pentagon said who. What are the list of associated forces so al qaeda yes the. Us war that's clear. What about the other groups l. Shebab al-qaeda and iraq al Grab armed islamic group. Abu say of jimmy as amelia brotherhood of this brotherhood of that. Who are these groups who is the us at warwick and the pentagon emailed me back and they said that list is classified an offer public release so we who we are at war with. He don't know i great. So you're saying when you approach the pentagon they say that they they will not tell you. The names of the people were at war against. We'll maybe they shouldn't. It'd be that valuable well. They don't you know as a citizen of america who were fighting on the other hindu. I want to know as the as if the united states has determined that. I am dangerous to it if it announces then that would give me a certain amount of Notice which may perhaps would be disadvantageous. To the united states. it could also though act as a disincentive for you to take action baby but maybe not maybe they will just get quieter more dangerous. I mean it's true. There might be reasons for. They have not wanted to provide a public list because they this is john bellinger one. The group's move all the time. And so if you say well. These are associated groups while then certain people just moved from group to group b and they also want to leave these different groups guessing but it still raises democratic concerns. If the american people don't really know who the executive branch believes is covered by the a. f. in democracy and in a representative democracy that has to be weighed out. Should the citizens of the united states know who it is that the united states is targeting for death around the world who it is that the united states is technically at war with should war be decision that the citizens of a democracy of a representative democracy have a say. We're a representative democracy as you just said so. I'm assuming that the chairman of the house intelligence committee knows every item on that list. Sure warning everybody. That committee meet today to receive testimony on the law of armed conflict. One of the more interesting senate hearings took place in early two thousand thirteen putting the status of the two thousand and one authorization for the use of military force the a. m. f. It was the senate armed services committee. Senator karl levin of michigan chairman of the committee senator mccain is on the committee like to welcome our witnesses and greg says the senators called the couple of defense department officials to answer questions members. Committee thank the opportunity to testify about the legal framework for the us military operations to defend nation. Because they wanted to know like now that we're twelve years into this war. How are you using. This document does need to be changed so the department of defense officials and there were four of us came and said look. I believe that existing authorities are adequate for this armed conflict. Don't revisit this sentence. don't repeal it. This sentence is sufficient. It gives us all the power that we need against al qaeda and associated forces as they're laying out their case they say those two words associated forces associated forces associated forces over associated forces and over and associated force and associated forces in associated force and their associated forces associated for associated forces instead of just nodding along a lot of the senators are like what gentleman i've only been here five months but this is the most astounding and most astoundingly disturbing hearing that i've been to since i've been here. You guys have essentially rewritten the constitution here. Today that's angus king independent senator from maine and you keep using the term associated forces. You use it thirteen times in your statement that is not in the m. f. and you said at one point it suits us very well. I assume it does suit you very well. Because you're reading it to cover everything and anything. But one of the most striking moments of this hearing when the head of the committee senator carl levin.

"If you really want to understand the world we live in now. You've got to jump ahead. One day to september twelfth to a corner office in the white house where there's a lawyer sitting at a computer trying to figure out. How are we going to declare war and one of the things that everybody realizes after sort of an initial discussion is yes. We'd like to declare war but we have no idea upon whom we should declare war. That is gregory johnson. The michael hastings national security reporting fellow at buzzfeed. Now the reason this lawyer man by the name of timothy flanagan. The reason flanagan is sitting at a computer in an office is because then president george bush had to do something he had to act and he didn't wanna act alone. You wanted congressional approval right. I mean technically in an emergency president can defend. The country is the commander in chief after all. He doesn't have to go to congress and say hey do i have authorization to use force. Not an emergency. That's been with us by the way senior fellow governance studies at the brookings institution but president. Bush needed congress on his side. He felt it was important. That we project unity that we were all standing together as one and second if this was an act of war the power to declare war in the constitution is given to congress not to the executive when congress clears war. Suddenly the president has a very clear and powerful mandate now the declaration of war is kind of a dead instrument of international law. Nobody's declared war since world war two but the modern incarnation of the declaration of war is the authorization to use force the authorization to use force. What's called the authorization for the use of military force or as it's commonly referred to the a u. m. f. right so our lawyer in the white house planning he's given a task go right and ao method. Congress can send to the president. He really has no idea so he goes back to the last time that the us did this last time. Congress passed one of these things. He does a quick sort of search on his computer. Boom finds it nine hundred ninety one iraq. The gulf war flanagan grabs the text. And then he copies that into a word document and that becomes his template he makes them cuts. He makes some changes. He deletes some words and then he hits sent our war on terror a just and he sets in motion. This will during series of events a us drone strike it linked to al qaeda house madness that is basically the world. We live fifteen members of a wedding. Procession were killed. Why and if. You're like me. Czar even sadistic treatment. You're like me you find yourself flipping through the channels news. Basically ignoring it then every so often thinking wait a second terrorism targets in africa from libya. Now the us air force drone strike in southern somalia. We how are we doing this. And all these different places. Hundred prisoners are on hunger strike and like that in protest of their indefinite detention. How how we detaining for so long. Is it okay to do. We'll just who signed off on this you know and it turns out we all did because it was in that document. This is the legal foundation for everything that the us has done. Everything from guantanamo bay two drone strikes to secret renditions to seal rates. It's all been hung off the sixty and that's the crazy part. The body of this document part that really matters and the reason that when i was reading gregory's reporting on this i was like what is that. It all goes back to one single sentence. Sixty words one-sentence. Can you read it absolutely that. The president is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations organizations or persons. He determines planned authorized committed or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on september. Eleven two thousand one or harbored such organizations or persons in order to prevent any future acts of international terrorism against the united states by such nations organizations or persons sixty words today. A collaboration buzzfeed with reporter gregory johnston. We're going to try to code those words and ask. Where do those words come from. And how did they come to mean what they mean. It's not what you think they know. And how did they end up leading us into what is arguably the longest war in american history. Nobody saw coming absolutely no. But that's the weird part. Well nobody minus one. Let's start there. Maybe you should introduces to barbara lee. Right barbara lee is a congresswoman from right around berkeley california. Hello hello is barbara. And she is someone who has been in many ways a lifelong activist going all the way back to when she was fifteen and high school in san fernando valley. Because i wanted to be a cheerleader. But you know since this was the early sixties you had to have certain criteria like at least whether it was stated or non blonde and blue is hard for you. I would figure and i was really hard so i went to the end ablaze. Cpi she got them to pressure the school to change the rules and i won and she became the first black cheerleader at her high school. Yeah yeah that's just. By way of introduction fast forward many years should become the congresswoman she gets elected to a second term and on that day. There is smoke pouring out of the pentagon choose at the capital. No one knew where to go. So as the police officers said run. Run run gogo. This was an apparent terrorist attack on our country. So i ran out of the capital down. Pennsylvania avenue. I remember looking back and saw a lot of smoke. Which was the pentagon clearly the country's under attack clearly people have died. Clearly we've gotta deal with whoever. Did this whatever it takes. Fast forward two days september thirteenth released back in the capital to meet with her democratic colleagues to review that document that flanagan. It's sent over. The mood in the room was very somber and very angry at the thing. We have to keep in mind when we're talking about this is all of this was done within seventy two hours after the worst terrorist attack in united states. His and very confused. What would be the appropriate response. So as she and her colleagues read those sixty words. There was a lot of debate going on back and forth. Oh yes oh yes from everyone. Because this wasn't the first draft. Flanagan had sent one over the night before september twelfth two thousand and one in that one was something that almost no one agreed to. According to gregory that early draft had a few extra lines in it one gave the president the power to preempt any future acts of aggression against the united states and barbara lee and her colleagues knew that look so many things can be packed into this word aggression that if we sign onto this that if we give the president this power the president may never have to come back to congress ever again and request authorization for military force because he can say that anything is aggression and we're also giving him the power to preempt so they kicked back to the white house flanagan took out those words and now they had new draft that the president is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force. Which is what you heard it still win. Barbara read that and saw phrases like all necessary and appropriate force. She thought what does that even mean. I said this is too broad was not definitive. It's open ended. And as she was speaking this is taking place in the basement of the capitol building. She sees some of our democratic colleagues. Start to gnaw. Yep people were not in people were nodding because everybody. There knew the danger of ill-defined words. You just had to go back. Fifty years to the gulf of tonkin gulf of thompkin talkin.

"The wall street journal and the new york times this week noticed and commented on a really remarkable trend in american higher education colleges which have been increasingly dominated by women are increasingly. Women are are are prevalent in on college campuses. This is become extreme in the past. five years. women are now sixty percent of college students. They earn well more than sixty percent of degrees because men drop out at higher rates and most alarmingly men are vanishing from campuses at a stunning rate. So they're one point. five million. Few were college students overall. There were five years ago and of that one point. Five million who've who vanished almost three quarters more than a million of them are men by almost any measure who was graduating with honors. Who is enrolling. Who's getting the merit scholarships who is leading student governments. Who is doing. Who's who's leading student body. Women are far ahead on college campuses now. The times had an interesting piece this morning pointing out that even with this drop in male enrollment however many still go to college at a much higher rate than they did a generation ago so there's been overall trend up of college enrollment for everybody so even though there's a drop a drop on a higher base. Emily what are the reasons that women are doing so well in college and men appear to be doing so much worse man. This is such a tricky topic because it plays right into gender stereotypes rate. I mean i'm wanna trot so first of all. I feel like we don't really know the answer but i want to try out some explanations about how you know. School in some ways plays to some of the average girl strengths. You have to sit down. You have to pay attention. You have to behave yourself especially for younger kids that those can be things that for. Some boys are more difficult. And i also wonder. If in this call statistic we're seeing some different gender-based signals about delayed gratification. Right i mean if you go to college you are putting off making money. You're putting off kind of starting yourself off as a full adult in the world and maybe there is a way in which that is something that girls still have an easier time doing boys when i was reading about this one of the explanations was that boys felt a responsibility to help take care of their families during covert and so they wanted to go and work at the age of eighteen. But i don't see why that would apply any less two girls that seemed really odd as like a set of assumptions goes especially when you consider all the evidence suggests the opposite. Which is that the people who are taking care of their families co the women so expected the eighteen year old boys to be the ones stepping up. The one thing i wanted to add. This point comes from your levinson. Who's an education professor at harvard. But she's been looking at the status since covert and she says that it's really entry into community colleges and other to your college programs that are down. While entry to four year colleges especially at selective schools has not dropped very much. So that's another indication that what we're seeing here is class and there's a way in which it somehow affecting working class boys in a way that's different from affecting working class girls and again like i. Just find a mystifying. Maybe because it plays into gender stereotypes. And i'm always trying to fight gender stereotypes. We also have a racial if you look at the numbers the asian there is no gap between asian men and women whereas there is this gap between other races so the you can throw that into the mix of complexity here. The ladder to the middle class is comes out of to your community. Colleges and state colleges the places where this is more. this difference is more acute just to underscore your point. Emily about class. Right i mean. Do you think it's possible that boy. You still see a path to blue-collar decently paying jobs that girls don't see that doesn't require college though even yes you're going to say totally yes and secondarily. There's also a reasonable case to be made that for many people it's worth more and makes more sense to go into vocational career based on the way they wanna live their lives and their ambitions for themselves than to go then to go to college. Well that's true about like some four year liberal arts degrees right but a lot of okc. Ed is really well served by a two year degree. And actually you get seriously marketable skills and i actually wonder if boys who are choosing to go straight to work as opposed to doing those programs are really disturbing themselves in kind of diluted about the economy that they're going to again. I just want to emphasize. I'm i'm praising voca ed in this right not arguing that everybody should just like get lots of education for its own sake. There's a few remarkable stats. I wanted to fly. One is white working and poor working. Class and poor men are now enrolled at lower rates and college than black hispanic and asian men at similar economic background which is a real shift. So that's that does suggest there's also maybe trump effect happening here which urban perhaps and it's important to remember the cost to this. I was just doing a little back of the envelope. Calculation so college degrees worth about a million dollars in extra lifetime earnings and if we have lost one point five million people one point. Five million people are not in college who were in college five years ago. Numbers are the decline. Is that stark. Not every one of those people would have graduated. That's true but that's roughly one point five trillion dollars in lost earning in society just from that tiny little shift just from that drop and that's a huge amount of money do right. I'm just gonna play like Devil's advocate bryan. Caplan land here. Who's written a book kind of against education or against higher. Ed for its own sake to just oversimplify his argument. I mean i think one of the things. Critics like him argue. Is that what you're seeing in those statistics credentialing effect. And if you're people have those degrees well then. Employers are going to put more resources into giving them the training in the skills based development they need on the job and we've sort of we keep adding to education without really thinking through its value. I do sometimes wonder about and just attaching to that. Is that what you hear from. A lot of companies corporations is that they have a huge skills gap which means that they are whatever i mean. They're not enough people but also the people coming out of college. Don't have the skills that they need for their workers. But i think that's true. Sorry go ahead. Venture i did. I mean emily. That's then you don't think there's an issue at all if that's the case then like let everyone drop out of college. It's not serving people at all. Like why bother but dropping but if they're dropping out of the community colleges and vocational. Ed which is like you're saying that to where the decline in the enrollment is and that's also the point you're saying oh that's where actually get skills that boost you economically than it does. Yeah right. I'm saying to sort of contradictory things. I think fairly. You caught me on that but i guess what if you play out. The critic argument that employers will fill in this gap. If there's less of the valuable community college to your program development..

"Asking for assistance as they took control of organizing evacuation efforts that call was sent out to all ships in the vicinity requesting them to converge on the new york harbor and battery park to begin transporting as many people as they could to safety as more than eight. Hundred mariners scrambled to help. Desperation had seized some of those waiting on the shore. People began jumping into the water and panic attempts to swim to the approaching boats. Remarkably not a single drowning was reported. Some of the first answer. The call were dozens of tugboat crews normally busy guiding larger vessels through the ports under the watchful gaze of the statue of liberty over one hundred fifty ferries tugs coastguard ships and privately owned recreational boats. Work together to shuttle half a million people five hundred thousand people to staten island. Ellis island and new jersey speaking to cnn. On august of two thousand seventeen and also think about this at the time because you have all those different boats approaching you have no idea where the threat is coming from right because you would never have expected it to come from the sky like that. Inside the continental united states all these different boats converging now looking at it from like an anti-terrorism perspective. I don't know if they do that. Same thing now like i don't know th they huddle everybody together and say we're going to be at one point. I don't know if that's something that they do now. But it worked in and my pyro pal had this to say about the extent of the harbor front rescue efforts put forth by himself and hundreds of others we had like a noah's ark. We had everybody on that boat. We had animals. We had babies without parents. Everyone was covered in soot and that half a million number is more people than the entire city of saint. Louis in case you're wondering it's more than the number of allied troops evacuated during operation dynamo in the early days of world war two often referred to as the miracle of dunkirk. This wartime operation saw civilian and navy vessels being called into action to help rescue soldiers trapped along. The beaches of the french city of dunkirk as german forces moved around them that impression operation that impressive operation saved the lives of over three hundred thirty thousand men but unlike the boatlift on september eleventh. It took nine days. The makeshift new york rescue fleet accomplished their feet in just nine hours. Well granted. they weren't being shot at but they were dealing with white out conditions with the massive dust blown there way. Captains of the rescue boats are on record as describing dust clouds so thick that at times even their radar was block and rendered use was blocked and rendered useless. They're basically in the water blind.

And i don't know what i would have done without it like like having that little bit of peace in that to me. That's the reason why religion existed.

And and i'm okay with your amount of jelly that you lose because i'm more of a peanut butter guy. Jelly guy as well if it could have just been a little more. Each even in a little more symmetrical. I think you would agree on that. Chain scarves support your chunky peanut butter choice. Jelly was clumpy is look like some fake plastic gel. You didn't read it even at all and then the peanut butter there was more jelly than peanut butter. Which is not okay. The peanut butter spread so thin. Who you saving your peanut butter for.

"Let's get going with the actual show but before we get into the round. There's a couple of things that we talk about one. The big news story of the day. I guess yesterday to for those of you who are parents that around my age and for those of you who are children then. Two thousand one. You'll remember steve from blue's clues. Now steve from blue's clues if you don't remember you've seen them before everybody in the world i imagine has seen him before. He's the he's the fellow that would wear the green striped shirt one dark color. One light color And then he had a little dog named blue who turned out blues. A girl everybody that was assuming blue was boy was wrong. You can Blue the dog does not believe in gender colors at all. Kind of like me. I love pick blue. Is that same way. Blue girl dog steve. About twenty years ago there was all kinds of rumors. I would even say i would even say goes to the point of hullabaloo. Kate would you agree with that. There was a lot of hullaballoo. All sorts of rumors getting tossed around is to buy heroin heroin. That he was that he was a child molester. All sorts of things which were not true. Obviously nick junior wouldn't be putting on his video today. No not a heroin guy definitely not a child porn guy he said i just kinda got up and went to college and that was really challenging by the way but great because i got to use my mind and take a step at a time and now i'm literally doing many of the things i wanted to do. So he just he up and left blue's clues the height of its fame to go to college because he was bald to now was came up to the nick actually forced him out because he was bald. That was a big rumor that went up another big rumor. Yeah steve bank from blue's clues out have to imagine like those child stars that come in there. I mean bank relative like maybe not millions of millions but he probably he had to have made good money to be the star of a tv show for that. I feel like again. You know two thousand and one. I was in high school. So i don't really ever have a need to watch blue's clues but i remember it being big so i have to imagine. He made a considerable amount of money enough that he would walk.

"Camera has been trailing those vices as they make their way so when members of the taliban went inside the arc the presidential palace the afghan white house and slowly took down this flag. I just could something what. We're showing our viewers now images of the afghan flag being taken dine not as taliban fighters have taken down the flag of ghanistan. This for me was when it all really started to sink in. This is a moma cats business history. This is not a good feeling. And i know i wasn't alone. I feel sad. And i am feeling said inside my heart when i see my leg is coming. Down in another flag is going up. It's a tragedy and it's sad news for every afghan. This is nobody johnny. He's one of honest don's most treasured poets he's written scores of poems books and anthologies and i interviewed him a few years ago for an indie podcast about the role of culture for those of us in the afghan diaspora what role news culture have in possibly solving correcting helping aid the situation and afghanistan if people allow in light and d- won't leave their country destroyed by foreigners interests in suicide bombers in enlightening. The people are the job of the writers and artists. When i saw the taliban roll up that flag i couldn't help but think of adult body johnny because he's responsible.

"Mike pompeo and trauma guy in others try to take a victory lap on this given their role so just some context ben that we should talk about like you just said they. They cut this deal with the afghan government trump and mateo and invited the taliban to camp david and then they attacked biden when he took the withdrawal deadline from may first to august thirty. First they said. Oh biden's gonna stick around forever now. Trump forced the afghan government to release five thousand taliban prisoners Many of whom went right back to fighting and then in two eighteen they pushed pakistan to release malabar one of the founders of taliban who is now basically defacto leader the trump administration did everything possible to prevent refugees from coming to the us including these special immigrant visas for people who helped us to the point where there was a lawsuit against trump administration in a judge rule that they'd violated the law because they slow down the process and so we have to. You know this context is relevant. I think we need to watch his refugee issue really closely. Stephen miller is already out there trying to demagogue afghan refugees last night. Tucker carlson on his show said if history is any guide in it's always a guide we'll see many refugees from afghanistan resettle in our country and over the next decade that number may swell to the millions so i we invade and then we are invaded. That is some chilling. Chilling shit from a bow tied fascist. Fuck So i i don't know like that. I just think that context is important. No i mean this much like there. I mean the the deal cut without ghani to Totally undercut him in the country. Right the us government that has been the principal force in the country for twenty years cuts a deal with the taliban totally excludes the afghan government. That was part of what. Cut the the legs out from underneath ghani because then the taliban starts cutting deals with these other officials the destroying of an already bureaucratic program in terms of a refugee admissions or You know like just stops already. Slow moving gears here. I mean into fucking tucker carlson's point. The best thing that could happen to this country is to have hundred fifty thousand afghan refugees. Come in and you what they're gonna do. You know what's going to happen. They're going to start businesses. They're going to run for elected office. They're gonna make enormous contributions to this country like we will be better for having them. It's not like charity. Like we will be enriched by them and the same way we're sitting here in california like look at what the vietnamese american communities done in this state. You know these people. And the i mean the lack of any sense of internal accountability on their behalf is so astonishing ab. I'm sure we'll get to your second to but like they need literally. Cut the deal with these people. You have mike pompeo. They pressured pakistan to release the guy. Who's now like basically the president of afghanistan. you know. i'm not formally recognizing another. Anyone cares what i think about that. But the guy that they've declared to be. The president and mike pompeo met with the guy i mean he goes into the photo near released a guy and if oh my god if brcko bomb had done that you know i. I don't even know what the consequences would have been in but but there's this kind of because there was such a farcical nature to trump. People didn't take seriously like agreements that were agreements that will reach. Like for instance. Also the the the withdraw. Us contractors was part of the deal. Yeah it wasn't just about the withdrawal. The us military they literally the taliban new bargain. They were driving the league not down. Don't just get out the military. You gotta get out this contractors to right so like the. This is all was set in motion in a way and then biden comes in and yeah biden has had a long held view that you wanted out of afghanistan and so he he took it right and so i mean fairness. He didn't have to accept that he'll they could've renegotiated it. But i couldn't decided on balance that the risk that it was the right thing to do they could have torn it up because said we don't abide by this deal. It's piece of garbage in by the way they would have been right in saying that. The taliban hasn't really abided by the spurred this deal either because we're supposed to be a ceasefire and that was the point you were making at the time just ended. The deadlock could have said we are extending this because the taliban on so again this doesn't mean the biden didn't make the decision he did. It doesn't mean that biden hasn't mismanaged aspects of decision. He has it. Does mean that trump set in motion withdraw that had a lot of momentum and had created a lot of ripple effects in afghanistan by the time by came in and it does mean that the argument that jake laid out is true that the current course was not like some sustainable status quo was either ramp back up and get back into the civil war Or or get out and people can argue. You know that that you know ramping up a little bit and keeping album that there was a limited option you've done but this is where things were. Yeah and look i. i don't think either. As opposed having peace talks with the taliban they should have included the afghan government. The original said this too. I mean in throughout the years people often said how come you guys aren't doing more to have these discussions taliban and it's because our principal was always that has to involve the afghan government. We weren't willing to cut out the elected government and keep in mind they were democratically elected. You can call them corrupt. You can call all these things. They were democratically elected by a lot of afghans internet. Vote in difficult circumstances and to cut them out of a de of a deal like that was pretty extraordinary. I will say another thing. That hasn't got attention. I am not sure why the biden people kept on zell khalilzad the envoy who cut the deal with palmdale leyla. He's not exactly covered in glory. Here either you know yeah. It's probably continuities knowing the writing was wall. I mean but it's a fair point so look let's talk about the the history of the us involvement in afghanistan last two decades in that that mission creep overtime casino. This is not just trump and biden story. So we the. Us went to war in afghanistan in early october. Two thousand one right after the nine eleven attacks in by early december the military effort had been so successful that the taliban offered to surrender hand over their weapons and join the political process as long as mullah omar who's the taliban leader at the time could live in kandahar under house arrest bush don rumsfeld. They rejected that deal. Greenvale would've been. It was the deal that was on the table in twenty nineteen In that mission quickly shifted from counter-terrorism to this broader nation building exercise you had bush who ran against nation-building talking but a marshall plan for afghanistan. This is what he wrote about. Afghanistan in.
