Why Are Sexual Assault Allegations Coming Out Against Elon Musk Now?

"The question from Mark from Alaska is Charlie, you did see the Elon Musk news about the Business Insider report. What do you think? So I don't know the details of the story. It alleges sexual harassment by Elon Musk. But we know why this is happening. Let me ask you a question. If Elon Musk had announced that he was going to donate a $1 billion over the next decade to the Democrat party. Do you think that there would be a Business Insider piece against him? If Elon Musk came out and said that he was going to put all of his profits for transgender puberty blocker surgery. Do you think that he would be attacked? If Elon Musk came out and said, I'm not going to buy Twitter. I'm forget that. And said that instead he is going to try to invest money in diverse and black and LGBTQ creators. Do you think that there would be a full court press against him of course not? Elon is learning. Now he's unbelievably smart. He's brilliant. He's a great entrepreneur. But I don't think Elon quite understands how malevolent and how nasty these people are. You see, Elon has been operating in a completely different game. Elon is used to opposition and he's used to a fight. But the fights that Elon have been in have been largely fair fights, but difficult fights, but they've been kind of how the world used to work. Can't make payroll have to take out a second mortgage on your house. You know, really leverage up, go raise outside money, bring Tesla back from the oblivion. Those are tough. Fighting government regulators, those are tough. What Elon has not experienced and what he is now front and center in is a political attack. Political attack is not rational. It's not a fair fight. They'll try to destroy you at every possible opening.

Biden Administration Foolishly Refuses to Allow More Drilling

"Let me turn to this insane drilling stuff because it's like you can't make it up. The Wall Street Journal did a great thing the other day. I actually said this. Months ago, it's like Joe Biden needs to channel George Costanza from Seinfeld, where you just do the opposite of what you think you should do. That might actually help. Wall Street Journal had a great op-ed. Saying the same exact thing, just the other day. And this is one where, yeah, we really need where's George. Where's George Costanza? So the Biden administration is canceling drilling leases despite the fact that we have record high oil prices. This is a decision that I think is going to have some pretty serious consequences. So they are halting this drilling in the cook inlet in Alaska. This is a pretty significant high profile oil and natural gas lease opportunity that was before the interior department. And it's a little strange because he's been saying, yeah, yeah, yeah, in recent months, we're going to boost our oil and that gas production here in the U.S., right? Has the situation overseas not taught us anything in terms of the importance of being energy independent. And yet now, now, with inflation at a 40 year high with energy coming off of the market, so therefore driving energy prices even higher, his idea is to not approve leases. I mean, it's sort of mind boggling. And yes, brings us right back to that Seinfeld, George Costanza example, please. Please start doing the opposite of what you think is

"That the Biden administration announced it is canceling the sale of a massive oil and gas lease location in Alaska. He also canceled two leases under consideration in the Gulf of Mexico. There's a theme that has been emerging from this audience and the theme is pretty simple. That the Democrats aren't doing this accidentally. This is intentional.

"Jesse watters had his own unique take on this reprehensible situation yesterday on Fox News channel. Why are we feeding illegal babies ahead of American babies? Why can illegals get baby formula from border agents, but we can't get it at Walgreens? Does any of this make sense? None of this is rocket science. For instance, we have oil in Alaska. Gas. Just broke a record. It's almost what? Four 50 a gallon? What is Joe Biden do today? Shuts down a massive oil lease in the state of Alaska. Is anybody in The White House thinking? Inflation is at a record high. So how about we stop spending and stop printing? Right? It's the same thing with defund the police. We want to treat everybody on the street with respect, but we want to give the police the tools to fight crime. Everybody agrees with that. Judge jeanine said the other day, mayor Adams and Manhattan, taken thousands of guns off the street, but the crime is going up. Why? Because we're not taking the criminals off the street.

I mean, one third of the strategic oil reserve is going to be essentially released. It's been Trump filled that bad boy up, if you will. And now in this guy, a million barrels a day when we could drill here on federal lands if he would open it up. But it's Putin's fault. Well, well, put, you know, instead of taking out of the oil reserve, which is for national emergency, hey, why don't we drill for it? In Texas and Alaska, North Dakota West Virginia and even in California for goodness sakes. I mean, why don't we we were producing a million more barrels a day under Trump and I believe I really believe this, Carl, if Trump were president today, we'd be producing 15 million barrels a day, not 10 million barrels a day. Think about what that would mean to our economy, for jobs, for, you know, and what's really obscene about this and I use that word advisory, you know, we're now importing oil from Russia and helping fund their war machine.

But if one person says yes, I'll ask that question and you just decide to stand beside them and then you realize somebody else will and somebody else will talk about the catalytic knock on effect of showing others that they're not alone Tiffany. Yeah, I think it's hard when you see a company like Disney and others coming out and trying to shame parents and saying, well, you're not accepting of people. That's baloney. This isn't about, you know, this bill in Florida wasn't about homosexuality or heterosexuality. This was about children and innocence, and that's something everyone can get behind and fight for. I really think there's an effort to divide us as American citizens and they're trying to divide us on principle. The funny thing is, I think that Americans are smarter than that. And they're going to see past it, and they're going to work together. So I agree with you. We hear all the time. People come with their moms for liberty t-shirts somewhere. That one person joins them when we're joins them and then collectively they can't be stopped. Again, school districts might be able to pick off one or two parents, right? They can't pick off 40. So stand with each other, lock arms, shoulder to shoulder, and let's show Disney and these woke corporations and ridiculous politicians what we're made of. And what does it take to get involved and start a chapter? Yeah, so you can go to our website, moms for liberty dot org. You can click on the map on your state. You can see where chapters are currently in your state. As I said, a 180 chapters and 34 states. We just added Hawaii. That's very exciting for us. Give us a couple that haven't got any chapters.

Russian Politician Demands Reparations From US in the Form of Alaska, California

"Turning back to demands like California and Alaska. So this is gaining some momentum there. In Russia, first of all, you've got Dmitri Medvedev Medvedev forgive me saying that we might have to put the U.S. in its place a very cryptic cryptic thing to say, well, simultaneously, you've got state news commentators. They're in Russia saying that they need reparations because of all these sanctions. These sanctions that the U.S. is putting on the country of Russia because of the devastation and destruction it's committed in Ukraine. By the way, I love sanctions. I'm a big believer in sanctions the best way, however, for all those sanctions to work is for everybody to be on board. So we need everybody joining us. We need to be holding hands as a world united against this evil monster that's killing so many people. So really important, we all be on the same page, which is why it's critical that China come to the table and work with us here. They have got a huge opportunity in front of them. Let's hope they take this anyway back to this idea that they would take California or Alaska. That's the commentator saying, we want reparations, you know, because this is going to be economic hardship for us, so you should suffer. We need California and Alaska talking about territorial expansion, right? They're saying we're not going to contain this just to Europe. I'm laughing. It's actually not funny, although I will say that all of you have been pointing out, well, hey, they can take California. We'll give it to them.

He's very upset about them. You know, he's got his TV host going on state TV saying, well, we think that we deserve California and Alaska as reparations. From the United States for all these sanctions. To which I tweeted this out and a lot of you responded, this is great. Well, they can take California. We'll give it to them. Anyway, I mean, it's just getting so preposterous. And I shouldn't laugh about this. It's just the rhetoric, which is insane. But what they're actually doing is tragic heartbreaking. I told you yesterday about the mayor Paul theater where thousands of people were taking shelter, families, children, and this animal, this murderer went there and decimated the place.

Trish Talks Oil and Consumer Prices

"I want to point out in today's market, you are seeing oil prices down slightly in the high 90s per barrel of oil. Don't forget it had gone up to a 130 in change in overnight trading just a week or two ago. The reason now you're seeing it decline is because China has come out with the mandatory shutdown because it's going to increase in cases of COVID. So I do suspect that the decline in energy prices is very temporary. You saw today's number on inflation we're looking at a 10% increase in consumer prices forgive me. Wholesale prices. It will eventually catch up to consumer prices which have already increased 7.9%. Since last year, but the latest read now, as I predicted, I predicted we'd see 10% on producer prices. Here we are. Sure enough, it's here right now this month a 10% increase year over year in the prices that producers pay for good. So these are the wholesale prices, right? Well, what happens? A producer pays that much more for goods and that producer has to pass that on to consumers, otherwise it eats into profitability. And right now we've shown willingness for the consumer to absorb that. And so they do pay the higher prices, which leads to higher consumer prices, and this thing is off and running. Now, the fed is meeting today, the first of its two day meeting, we'll find out tomorrow whether or not it followed through on its promise to increase interest rates by 25 basis points, the expectation is that it will, and that will help on the margin, but look, we've got a serious inflation problem, and we had a series inflation problem long before this Russia thing. It's disingenuous, frankly. For the administration to sit there and tell us, well, it's all Putin's fault now. It will be Putin's fault. But what we've got thus far, this 10% increase in wholesale prices, the 7.9% increase in consumer prices, that's actually that is actually full on Joe Biden and Jerome Powell's

Russian Pundits Demand Alaska and California as 'Reparations'

"I just got to say, everything feels like we're on the brink of destruction. Russia now calling, as I said, for reparations, these pundits over it. Their state media somehow think that the answer is to give Russia Alaska and California and that's a result of the west economic sanctions. You know what I'm going to tell you. This means that the sanctions are working. You know, there are actually hurting. This guy in particular Kremlin host is all upset because he says he's losing his villas on Lake como. He's actually not losing them per se. In fact, I don't think he's been individually sanctioned. I could be wrong on that. But he's not actually losing them. One just knows that they're effectively if he's been sanctioned, freezing those assets, right? I don't know as he's been individually sanctioned. But this is all just, you know, this is rhetoric, right? It's a war of words. And it can escalate into a really dangerous place. So I caution against that, but I would, I would also say that it may be proof that Russia is in so far over its head. As I said, Russia has jumped the shark on this one. There's no easy off ramp for Vladimir Putin because the war world is now shunning him. He is risking becoming the sort of North Korean like figure of Europe.

Putin Thrives on Chaos

"Pretty wild and of course surrogates will say wild things. I get that, but the rhetoric is getting ratcheted up and I suspect this is in part because Russia is realizing that it's effectively not succeeding in this mission. Don't forget, he thought that this would just take a few days and now we're going on a few weeks here and Kyiv still has not folded to the Russian aggression. So it clearly he being Vladimir Putin got some very bad Intel from his military ops and now he's sort of blocked in, right? What does he do? He's flailing about right now. And I think it's really important that calmer heads here prevail. And this is one of the reasons why the discussions this week in Rome between our head of NSC, Jake Sullivan and the Chinese were extremely important because don't forget China thrives on stability, whereas Putin's thriving on chaos. So we've got to hope that they want that stability in the world as opposed to encouraging this madman which he clearly is turning out to be absolutely a madman and then if you get all these crazy people on state TV, perhaps trying to double down after they had that incident this week, that would be yesterday where one of the producers or researchers came up with a sign saying no war. She's now apparently in jail because if you can't do that in Russia, you can't actually have a different opinion. Now punishable by 15 years in jail and you wonder why nobody trusts the system

U.S. Senate Passes $1.5 Trillion Gov't Funding Bill With Ukraine Aid

"So I want to get into a story here that broke late last night. The United States Senate has approved the $1.5 trillion spending bill that expands the power of the IRS and dramatically increases the size and scope of government last evening, but also it sends $13.6 billion to Ukraine. We're going to get into that. Now Senate Republicans voted for this 18 of them voted for it. Senator barrasso from Wyoming, Roy blunt from Missouri. Shelley Moore capito from West Virginia, Susan Collins from Maine, John cornyn from Texas, Joni Ernst from Iowa, Lindsey Graham from South Carolina, chuck grassley from Iowa. Kathy Hyde Smith from Mississippi, Mitch McConnell from Kentucky. Senator Moran from Kansas, Lisa Murkowski from Alaska, rob Portman from Ohio, senator Shelby from Alabama, John thune from South Dakota, Tommy tuberville from Alabama, a senator wicker from Mississippi and senator young from Indiana. Approved Nancy Pelosi's $1.5 trillion omnibus bill. What good are Republicans when we have Republicans doing the work of Democrats? So I want to focus on one part of this, which of course is us spending $13.6 billion to Ukraine. Now, I'm not going to get into whether or not we should send the money. I've already made my position clear on that. I'm going to ask a couple of questions about this. How about leaders thought this through? What does success look like with this sort of funding appropriation? What is an acceptable result? So a rational way of going about spending money, any person that we have here at NRB would ask the question before you spend $13.6 billion before you embark on a mission, you just have to say if it's the right or wrong thing to do, but also weigh the reality of pulling off that task. And the track record associated with the entity or the organization proposing it. So I have a question for all of our listeners that support sending money to Ukraine. Do you have trust in the CIA? Does mark milley and Lloyd Austin give you confidence? Because that's who we just funded. Does giving foreign aid to other countries give you confidence or does it give you skepticism? So just to be clear, these Republicans and a lot of people that are pushing for sending a to Ukraine. And it might be the right choice, by the way. I have said I don't believe it is. I could be corrected, but it's already

I'd never even heard of the peninsula that we're gonna be talking about this. This whole area I i know nothing. I just know. it's frontier. It's alaska and i remember tiny bits of some of the history from. Do you remember that discovery show. That came out a long time ago. Then it was like it was the first fiction show. That discovery was making it was about. Alaska didn't our ceo connel burn has something to do with that back in his discovery days. I think so. I just remember i remember looking quite a bit of alaska around that time and just learning about how you think the american west as it was you know changing and as westerners were moving out to the west like how rough that was but then realizing just how tough it was to exist in alaska in the in those earlier times Seventeen hundred eighteen hundreds even the early nineteen hundreds. Well what was the impetus to settle out. There been like it seemed like so inhospitable was there was it about establishing trade or were there resources to exploit or a combination. Yeah both and then later. It became important and remains important geopolitical barrier during the days of the cold war alaska. Very very close to russia right and so it behooves the us at least in their calculations to have something between their continent and russia. This this place is inhospitable. it is still dangerous. Will probably alluded to this a couple times in today's episode but a few years back paul mission control night traveled to alaska in a believe was the first time for both of us. This was in the production of a show called missing in alaska which also centers around a mystery in the far north and Yeah it's it's very much on the edge of the wild in a way that many residents of the us would be unfamiliar with and would would perhaps find dangerous. But where did you guys travel to when you made the chirp. Yeah we were in anchorage. Alaska that's where that's the one of the easiest places to fly in and we landed there. We were there for about two weeks. And we were gathering gathering footage gathering tape gathering interviews and paul traveled to. I don't want to say too much. Without spoiling this story but paul and our host traveled to a incredibly remote location in alaska on the open ocean and to an island searching for a plane crash. Those are the teasers. The show is available for free on your podcast platform of choice smash that like in. Subscribe button or whatever legal sick days. I guess my my point is you. You guys have personal experience. Just being in alaska though. It is a massive place and specifically On an island so like experiencing the water like the shores and the water and how frigid and how dangerous that can be. Yes so it may surprise people to know that even in the modern day Life in many parts of alaska is at the mercy of nature in the passage of the seasons so there are times where the ocean may simply be a non navigable in certain parts right and there are for instance when we were out working on this. We were racing against time because we had seasoned experts and veterans pilots captains. Who were saying. Look i've been doing this for decades. And if x y z. Don't come together before this season. Then you're gonna have to wait another year and that's just that's just the reality of living with nature in a way that many people don't nowadays because the majority of human beings live in urban areas. But this this sets the stage just going to a very brutal place. Here are the facts. Nowadays port lock or what port lock used to be the site where port lock was located is abandoned. This was once a pretty bustling hive of activity at the very edge of the frontier. It is located as you said matt on very southern edge of something called the kenai peninsula is right in the closest town is a little bitty plays about sixteen miles to the north called sell dove. chaz distinctly nordic quality to the to the name And just to give you an idea of exactly how remote this place is. Sell dough via Only has around three hundred residents there. No roads leading in or out and it can only be reached by a small plane or boat because there's obviously airport so it has to be one of those planes that land on the water. If i'm not mistaken. Yeah and the same really goes for poor chatham or port lock. Where what we're talking about here and if you look at it on a map you guys. It's if it's at the edge of nowhere there's ocean there a few islands right outside of where it is like some tiny little islands. And there's you know some state parks around it and port graham d- and then like you said sedova and that's like that's it. It's it's it's incredible to imagine that people showed up there and started work to create any kind of living quarters or even a business. Yeah and the story already gets a little bit confusing. Because this place was known as port lock and a lot of people outside of alaska outside of this region will refer to it as port lock but people who live in the area often use. The free often used the import chatham interchangeably. That's because portland is located import chatham bay but there's another nearby community called poor chatham additionally there are a ton of places named ports something or other in alaska why this sounds a little weird at first cheers why it is important to remember modern exploration of the area by which we mean after people have been living there for thousands of years modern exploration. The area depended heavily on maritime transportation of resources and people. there were no planes..

The vagrant bird ends up as a stranger in a strange land. And who knows if it will ever find. It's way home again stay. Let's take a closer look now at a couple specific groups of birds that live in alaska to keep this episode from going on for hours and hours. I won't dig into every family of birds you'll find in alaska. I'm just going to single out a couple the tar megan's and the ox did he just say auks auks. I've heard there are musk. Oxen alaska is that what he means musk's but those aren't birds. I'm so confused. Yes there are. Musk oxen alaska. As i can attest from having recently seen those shambling beasts up close with my very own eyes they're super cool and their calves are insanely cute. But no i'm not talking about. Musk ox. I'm talking about ox a u. k. 's auks are all the birds in the family l. city these are the buffon's moore's murrelets audits guillemots and other such characters. They're chunky fish eating seabirds. That swim around underwater. Like miniature penguins. They aren't closely related to penguins at all. But they've evolved to have a similar lifestyle and appearance but unlike penguins auks can still fly. I'll do an entire episode on the family. Lcd at some point. But for now. I just want to point out. That alaska is kind of like auk heaven. There are about seventeen species found. They're not too shabby considering. There are only twenty four oc species.

"And it's super important for the ecosystems of alaska shore birds and waterfowl play vital roles in the food webs of freshwater coastal and tundra ecosystems. They eat ungodly amounts of vegetation and invertebrate biomass. They fertilize the soil and water with their nitrogen. Rich droppings and of course they end up as meals for furry predators like foxes and weasels circle of life. And all that yada. Yada lots of migrant species spend the summer on the tundra or alaska's wetlands these are essential breeding habitats for migrant birds but there are also specific places along migratory pathways that are nearly as important on their long distance. Journeys migrants need to stop to rest and refuel. They do this predictably. In the same places year after year these places are called stopover sites or staging areas for example the copper river delta in south central alaska is an enormous wetland that serves as a stopover site for birds like western sandpiper and done when they stopped to feed on the mudflats of the delta before flying much farther north to their breeding territories. So why is alaska so attractive to migratory birds. Why do they bother flying. All that way to breed in far-flung seemingly desolate landscapes. Why not just stay in the tropics where everything is sort of more pleasant biologist have different hypotheses to explain this but in general it's thought that the habitats of the far north are great places for birds to breed because one there is an explosion of insect life every summer. This superabundance represents tons of food to feed growing chicks too. There's a lot of open space. Which means there might be less competition for nesting and foraging habitat three. The days are super long. So there's plenty of time for courtship nest building and finding food for your insatiable young ones and four compared to more tropical places. Birds breeding in high latitudes may also have fewer predators parasites and diseases to deal with..

"Any endemic species. The answer for alaska is yes. There is a grand total of one endemic bird in alaska and that is mckay's bunting plectrums phoenix hyper boreas. Mckay's bunting is a cute little songbird that lives on only two remote islands in the bering sea. It's a close relative of the snow. Bunting plectrums phoenix nevada. Both species are in the family call. Caridi which also includes the long spurs the ancestors of mckay's bunting were probably snow buntings who found themselves isolated on those islands at the end of the last glacial maximum when the sea level rose and drowned most of the land bridge that once connected eurasia and north america but interestingly most of these birds the mckays buntings fly to mainland alaska in the winter and return to their little islands to breed in summer. So it's not like they're isolated by an inability to fly long distances. Researchers have suggested that mackay's buntings maintain their genetic distinctiveness from snow buntings their closest relatives because the two species breed at different times even where their ranges overlap. We don't know a whole lot about the biology or the behavior of mckay's bunting but it does have one other claim to fame no other north. American songbird has plumage. That's as white as that of the male mckay's bunting it looks like a snowball magically came to life and started flitting around eating seeds and causing mischief. The field like this bird needs a cooler name but the name snow-bunting is already taken. And maybe you've heard of the movement to get rid of honorific bird names. You know birds named after some dude. So instead of mckay's bunting maybe we could go with bleached bunting or blizzard bunting or mcflurry bunting. I don't know something like that. As for the snow. Bunting that species gives us an example of another pattern..

A lot of our tour operators are operating at a reduced passing just to kind of get more space to. We're not gonna see those tours anymore at least in twenty twenty one but then what's kind of been really creative that our downtown area was able to move into the streets before we had to keep them open because so many people here on our restaurants hells closer downtown streets and they moved outdoors and then they've added a chess board or hula hoops or music and so really take in. What should have been doing this. Avantage of that midnight sun that we have an outdoor areas. We have to make it possible for our restaurants that have higher capacity by having those tables outside plus. I'm sure i don't know if you guys have seen these. We have igloos reconvened igloo.

It depends on how much time you have to do that. Because of how large is on top of the map of the lower forty eight one is the size so that he idea power. Large alaska is so what it sounds like. You're saying is a bucket list trip easily translates into many more visits just to be able to see. Just hit the tip of the iceberg. If i can make a bad pun so well that's right and a lot of people that the first lock to cruise and when they do that crews they are blown away. I've had so many people come in and say wow. I had no idea how amazing i was. But now i looked at a map and i feel like that was the starter. Kit does really actually see in alaska that because there's just so much more to go see an experience and like you said authentic when you get on the land and kind of really meet the people. That's that people say that people here are so friendly and he. I think it says we don't have i always kid can grew up here. Is that. There's not a lot of our population is under a thousand for all those plants. We know new people are here. They have an anti go. Talk to them like excited to share our knowledge about our state and whether they wanna do and make sure they know our local favorites. You mentioned something about festivals. As everything's g tillis. Some of those family friendly events festivals. That do go on here. Sure absolutely we have them year round.

There's those tabled cruises that offer a lot of the same thing so of course you're not gonna be you know dining five times a day. It's only gonna see about five and a half hours but at the same time we have crews that you'll see twenty six glaciers and a half the cruise. they still serve you a meal.

Four hundred aircraft searched for any sign of the down plane but nothing was found then nor sense conspiracy theories swirled around the apparent deaths of boggs and baggage. The most prominent of these suggested j. edgar hoover had a bomb placed on the plane to silence. Boggs who some suspected wanted to reopen the kennedy assassination investigation for proponents of the alaska triangle theory. This is the most famous case to support their beliefs. Alaska has some of the most intimidating terrain andrew geography on the planet huge mountains covered by glaciers pockmark with deep crevasses and canyons descended too heavily forested slopes and these in turn plunged into the north pacific ocean. Couple this daunting landscape with challenging weather conditions. And you can understand how and why small planes disappear in the forty ninth state. Planes started vanishing in alaska as soon as humans began to fly them here. Sometimes hikers find wreckage from down plane decades after it disappeared or a fisherman spot to seek cushion washed onto the shore hinting to the final resting spot of the aircraft other times. Though as in the case of the bogs baggage flight searchers never find a scrap of material or mental and the fate of the plane and its occupants remains.
