Have an interest especially given the decision in In kabul with regards to surrendering afghanistan. Talk to us. Give it a little bit of clarity on the biggest moving parts of the threat environment. Explain to us the difference. The relationship and the competing interests of al-qaeda. So where's al qaeda to day. And how it compares with isis and this isis k. And then where does the taliban fit in. Well it will leave. The shia will leave new shrine and iran for a second told us about the three big pieces of of of suny terrorism today. Yeah absolutely. I'm gonna just take a real quick second to take a broad look at this. When president biden said the threat has basically metastasized and spread to other areas. He's absolutely greg. This is the failure of our efforts. Post nine eleven. Because pre-nine eleven the taliban the taliban hosted al qaeda and that was the main base for al-qaeda that's where they operated openly and ran training camps and whatnot and the operated cellular level. Now it's spread out. And there's these insurgencies are the lifeblood of the jihad. They use this the safe haven that exist pre-nine eleven in afghanistan afghanistan today to take the fight to to they want to establish their local emirates. Build a caliph it and then take the fight to watch. That's all part of their strategy today. Today that's threat has metastasized across the globe. But that is the reason to surrender afghanistan and in afghanistan today now the taliban greens the country l. Qaeda is it's primarily al-qaeda played a major role in the taliban offensive. It's not advertised. But i i have to go into detail and spend do conversation on how al qaeda played a major role in this offensive behind the scenes. You'll just have to take my so so so. This is very important that al qaeda was was an important part of the taliban recapturing afghanistan. That's what you're saying. Well yeah absolutely. The misconception about al qaeda and even the islamic state is that there are solely focused on conducting attacks here in the united states. That's a tactic. that's something they hope to do. Something they wanna do to to break our will punish us. But how did they achieve that. At that by gathering recruits training because remember the real goes established global galvin. That's what they want.

Now we have 11,000 Haitians under a bridge in your state with 10,000 more behind them. What the hell is going on here? Mark. Good to be able to show as always. I mean, look, if you set out to harm the United States of America, I don't know how you could do a better job than the bite administration is doing and eight months that they've been in power. And what's amazing is is that they've taken something and they have found a way to actually harm migrants and then harm the bury people in our country that they're supposed to protect at the same time. While pretending it somehow compassionate and we now as you just said, we have 10 or 11,000 people in Del Rio, a $10,000 way Haitians.

It's purposeful, and they're doing it in blatant disregard of the constitutional duty to defend the United States of America, they are failing to faithful sleep faithfully execute the laws of the United States.

"We are blessed everybody. We are very very blessed to live in. A country still has some semblance of a divinely. Inspired form of government of the independent jewish judiciary rule of law consent to the govern- checks and balances and that started today. Not actually today. But on this day i should say many many years ago in seventeen eighty seven the united states constitution after it was the seven articles were at least conditionally approved by the constitution convention. They had to go state by state so they had to go. Delaware was the first state rhode island was the last state to ratify and to approve it and there are seven articles of the united states constitution. It wasn't until seventeen. Ninety one that the bill of rights was passed and ratified by all the states. And that's actually what most people know is their constitutional rights first amendment second amendment amendment fourth amendment first amendment right to speech not to be infringed upon by government.

Things that are not in here are protect are then given to the states and to the people that the for. That's the first ten amendments to the united states constitution.

Somebody asked me say charlie what conservatives actually believe said. It's very simple. We believe in natural law. We believe in a natural law.

The united states in austria have agreed what they describe as a landmark defense and security partnership that will defend our security interests around the world. I'm not sure who are is but that's what they're saying And so it's going to see the us. The uk and australia or lease astray is going to be provided with technology to build nuclear powered submarines for the time and other very boris johnson was very keen to make sure everybody understood that this was nuclear powered submarines the of a nuclear reactor on there to provide propulsion. But nothing else. So the nuclear weapons on there but Well joe stole the show. I have to say they had a bit of a press conference and joe was in the middle of the street prime minister on the left on boss johnson on the right And stretched enough. Joe didn't say anything prime minister led off. They weren't in person. I should've said Because of prime minister and the debars johnson On the on screen only so after they had both spoken. Joe thank them. Let's have a list. That went. And i wanna thank That fell down under. Thank you very much. Appreciate the premise.

Inside the US-Australia Submarine Deal
"The dutch prime minister mark rutta will reportedly offer his uk counterpart. Boris johnson a defense and security cooperation. Deal with the eu. When the leaders meet in downing street later today it follows yesterday's announcement that the uk. The united states and australia had agreed their own defense. Pack called aucas. the deal has angered many. You states with france calling australia's decision to scrap a huge submarine. Deal in favor of eight nuclear powered subs deal with the us establish back. Let's get the latest now from paul rogers international security advisor at open democracy. Paul some very harsh words from paris. Today tell us what happened here. I on the australian deal and why the french are feeling blindsided by it over the australian deal. The australians essentially decided to replace their existing collins class submarines richard come to the end of their useful life with new pout submarines rather than diesel-powered submarines. The previous decision was to gain with france which has quite a good recorder producing diesel-powered submarines. It can actually produce a new pout. Submarines for self. I don't think he's ever exported them considered it. But anyway australia's decided they need to new capelle. Submarines had this deal with the french for the best essentially for the Diesel-powered ones they basically dish that and gone in with the united states with britain as well although the suspicion is that as far as the building of the new submarines consent bush will be done as an australian yard in adelaide. That will be done. Under american supervision with the british relatively small this is partly because britain is producing own new class of astute hunting submarines as well as its missile submarines an in both cases. It has pretty serious problems with developing the reactors rolls royce history. Having great difficulty in getting things right the to another words in america wants a more reliable. So that's the basis of it. The the fringe obviously are pretty furious of this because what was a pretty big contract with a lot of money in. It was basically dish in favor of a basic and anglo american agreement. So that's the background this at beyond that. Of course you have all the issues in the eu and the whole question of how one handles a rapidly growing china which does have increasing military capabilities.

His squarely aimed at one region because the future of our nations. Indeed the world depends on a free and open it up. Pacific the deal will cover diplomatic and security cooperation but most significant is the defense end of the pact including australia obtaining its first nuclear powered submarines momentous decision for any nation to acquire this formidable capability but australia is one of our oldest friends kindred nation for australia the agreement goes far beyond existing groupings with america such as the five is security block or the new quad tie up with india and japan. We must now and to a partnership that seeks to engage not to exclude. They contribute not type and to an idol. How not to control. Choas is another sign of america's shift away from european concerns and towards the pacific and a growing international alignment against that region's biggest.

"america." Discussed on Pod Save America
"People and brown people. There's no there's a history of that being the case. However i think it's critically important. That biden in the appropriate order calls the question. We can't just presume mitch mcconnell's obstruction we have to force them to actually obstructive thanks for juries. It's one so that we can create a paper trail of the costs of the republican senate for when we are going to go be trying to defeat republican senators and twenty twenty two. And if you want to make a case if joe biden wants to do this and joe biden is very reticent on the filibuster. That's even as important as joe manchin is. Joe biden is not someone like elizabeth warren or buddha judge or some others who are running for president who are very adamantly opposed to the existence of the filibuster joe biden as close as he came during the campaign. Say he was open to the idea. If mitch mcconnell was obstreperous was his term. now mitch mcconnell. How's it going to be a stripper. So he opened the door wide for it. But let's test the proposition on all of these issues of the things that are very important. That have huge majority support in the american people from the american people. That mitch mcconnell wants to stop. Let's make him stop them. Let's make marco rubio stop these things. Let's make ron johnson south facing the people that we are going to try to defeat and twenty twenty to go on the record blocking population does not presume to that was. Let's not assume they're obstruction and some avoid them. Now when i say do it in the proper. I think there's going to be a real question about what that budget reconciliation. Bill is. How soon do you do it. How important is it to fill in the gaps of the very meagre covert relief bill. That was passed last month. How quickly do you get these checks out that is going to require the in the budget. Reconciliation bill so is that something. That's going to move very early in. Should that move. The house can do things like this right so though they pick whatever you want to do. Hr one i come around to the other thing. That's great senate takes much more time. It's much harder and so it is a real. There's a very curious to see how the order in which biden prioritizes these things and how quickly he wants to play that budget reconciliation card in his presidency. I would go very hard on the john. Lewis voting rights act. I would put it on the floor if i was schumer and just dare mitch. Mcconnell and those republicans if you wanna filibuster like actually filibuster sit on get on the senate floor and just talk about why. You don't wanna expand voting rights. And i don't think that's necessarily going to shame. Republicans but maybe the pressure builds at that point like joe manchin do you want the republicans to filibuster a bill named after john. Lewis about voting rights. That's where we're going to let them filibuster like. I think that you know whether we win or lose on that one i would. I would spend a lot of capital on that. Because i think that you know. We don't pass some of these democracy reforms voting reforms. I get pretty worried about elections in twenty twenty two in two thousand twenty four and two thousand twenty six and beyond. We have redistricting this year. That's going to be tough for us like you know. We know we already saw in georgia right there. They're getting ready to pass a raft of voter restrictions georgia And look there's limited stuff that you can do on the federal level but hr was a good bill. And i think that the democrats should push very very hard for it and make it very very clear whose fault is if it doesn't pass and do everything they can to pass it. I mean this is the center. This is the central issue. Everything flows from it. And when we talk about mitch mcconnell nurturing this lie about a stolen election and we talked about in the context of jacking up turnout in georgia. That's part of it. The longer return reason why all the republicans who definitely knew better allow this line fester is because it creates pretext from war voter suppression. This is gonna happen all across the country and this is the last throes of shrinking white conservative majority in a country by divers growing progressive majority. And we we. We are going to have someone. That's what we can do in the senate off but we gotta call the question. We gotta find out what we gotta talk about it. We gotta make it the defining issue because everything else we care about flows from that right when we come back. We'll have interview with say. Pat america is brought to you by ali pop. All pop is the healthy alternative to soda. It tastes just like the sodas. I grew up with but without the spoonfuls of sugar and artificial ingredients they have delicious nostalgic flavors like vintage cola classic root beer orange squeezed cherry vanilla and strawberry vanilla. I love the vintage coa and the classic gruber. I don't know about you guys. I agree. I like vintage cola. The classic root beer. I like the orange squeeze. Those are the three that i go back to you again. For some reason they only shipped a bunch of strawberry. Vanilla has which is not a flavor. I would've picked out on my own but it is here in the house. And i've been drinking it and like yes. Hey john former like it speaking of deliciousness dodge. This reminds me of an incident that happened in seventh grade. Okay i was over at my friend. Ian boon's house. We were big. Nhlpa ninety four fans and sega genesis. That you that was the season when you could break the glass and make the guy's head bleed remember that i do remember that featured in the film swingers but You know we did about eight hours of straight sega genesis hockey and then we decided rents movies was mom ran out and was gonna get some karate.

"Million times It's why we do this. I think the next department of justice We're gonna talk about merck garland and a bit in the f. b. i. Have to go back to taking white nationalism and right wing extremism seriously. Surveilling it going after it. It is a incredibly dangerous threat to this country from within and that needs to be a priority And then you know then. The work of the work of elections in the work of democracy. Right like i. I think that as you said like the odds are that we will face this kind of hate and violence again in the sad truth is it's always been a part of who we are country but you know our friend Ben rhodes pointed this out yesterday. Tweeted there's always two competing stories about america and where country of slavery and civil war and jim crow and horrific racist violence. But we're also the country of the civil rights act and the voting rights act and martin luther king junior john lewis and ultimately i think politics is about us choosing between those competing stories and the story that we chose on tuesday night look very different than wednesdays and it was almost poetic right like donald trump ends the november election by trying to disenfranchise millions of voters specifically suing to throw out ballots majority black areas like detroit and philadelphia in milwaukee. Meanwhile mitch mcconnell's senate majority depends on to georgia senators who have literally profited off the pandemic while denying relief to disproportionately poor and black and brown citizens of georgia. Who are hurting most of them. Kelly leffler runs one of the most racist campaigns in memory against her black opponent. And what happens. On tuesday a multi-racial coalition of whites and latinos and asians and more black voters than have ever voted in any election in any state. Ever turn out to end mitch. Mcconnell's majority by electing a young jewish kid who worked for john lewis and the first black democratic senator from the south who literally preaches for martin. Luther king junior's pulpit and that's america to we have a good clip of Warnock from his victory speech day.

"The lead of facebook on this because usually they're slightly ahead of facebook which is still way too late on some of these deeper platforming issues. But we'll see what happens. Yeah i was in great great for twitter. Facebook like you know as one of our friends noted that it sort of it seemed. It felt calmer last night. That trump wasn't on twitter continuing to row things up. Though as as tommy also pointed out like this whole thing started not necessarily because of his tweets because he got up in front of the white house at that rally and told people to go storm the fucking capital and so the guy can still go to the briefing room cause trouble so he is so. It's good that he's off to a good these off as for it but he is still a threat so the question is what can be done about. Donald trump There have been calls for impeachment among democrats Including minority leader soon to be majority leader chuck schumer and even some republicans though not too many publicly there there have been reports that cabinet officials and white house officials are talking about invoking the twenty fifth amendment. There have been white house. Resignations and rumored cabinet resignations. What the fuck can we do here. Should trump be impeach removed from office. Yes that was true before this happened. It's even more true now. Is he most definitely unfit for the job of protecting leading america. One hundred percent of the twentieth amendment be invoked. Twenty fifteen are those things can happen is just worth noting that you need seventeen. Republicans why we go back than this so you need one thousand nine with the current senate. Seventeen if often worn preceded twenty four hours ago. There were twelve republican senators. Who refuse to acknowledge. Joe biden's legitimate election. So it's hard to imagine where even if the house were to that we're going to get seventeen nine hundred seventeen. That seems very very challenging. And i should say that ego beach last night. Ask mitt romney on the way out of the senate mitt romney being the one republican who voted to convict last time last impeachment. Because now we're talking about a second impeachment on donald trump gets to impeachments and he said you know. I think that's really hard to do right now. I think we have to just hold our breath for the next fourteen. Days is what romney said so if you have the person who convicted last time the republican last time saying. I don't think it's possible this time. I don't know where you're going to find an additional sixteen or seventeen. Republicans in the senate to convict this man and look if the house wants to gavel into session and impeach. Donald trump as a symbolic gesture is purely symbolic gesture. Which is what it would be. I'm forward. If i was in the house i would vote for that resolution for sharp But that's all it. Let's let's not kid ourselves. That's all it would be I don't think you're going to get seventeen senators Like look if you want to pass the resolution and drop it mitch mcconnell's lap and make him be the one to say no we're gonna not convict donald trump. I think that's fine. I think that's fine. Bela and you know. And tommy pointed this out on monday. It's it's not just to remove the threat over the next thirteen days. It is too if donald trump is impeached and convicted. If he's convicted he will never be allowed to run for office again. And i do think it is worth trying to prevent him to make sure that he does not come back in two thousand twenty four and run again. Maybe you can sell that to cruise hallway tolerate. I mean it's a good point. My brother made this point. Why wouldn't they want him out of the picture. And twenty twenty four. Look look i think you back to your question earlier about some of these republicans statements like georgia plays a big role here to donald. Trump is a very little use to any of these republicans right now he cost them two senate seats or health cost them two senate seats. Let's say we're going to get into this In georgia cost them. A majority destroyed the house majority in twenty eighteen lost in the senate majority twenty twenty one term president. The party is now in tatters and a bunch of to run for president. Two thousand twenty four and now they want us voters. They don't wanna piss voters off which drives everything that they do. Every fucking destructive move they make. It's about fucking voters but like what good is donald trump to these people now anyway. Well i was reading this morning. I think from jake sherman that up until yesterday kevin mccarthy's plan for taking the house back was to work hand in glove with donald trump to raise money for the house to rally in republican districts. Like he was a huge part of their plan and the question is what. What does that mean. i just want to prepare. Everyone's expectations for this is. They are all going right back to him. And a couple of months the like they will find some grievance about biden or some tweet of near attendance and they'll send them right back into trump's right like that. We should just be prepared for that because this is about where the political winds are blowing. And if you're a republican who is in a safe district and your political. Fear is not a democrat general election. It's a magnet republican in the primary..

Sunday's racing feeds the cars that you had some issues now to pit billy's or whatever and go to the back you drive back to the front a lot easier so on the package. The aero package was a lot better than than last year. Short-track obviously the lower down horses. Make sure you can get behind the car. You can raise some kind of doing race review coming into this weekend looking back to twenty eighteen. I've forgotten how much better it was versus. Nineteen so at a lower downforce was a big part of it. But you know hats often ask the track for doing the. Pj One and for the tire they brought. I just think that the racing was incredible today. proud of the sport happened today. you know the the new rules back is the Jackson compound that was put down racetrack pedantic facing race you can follow a hell of a lot closer than you couldn't afford You know you could actually get into the corner behind the Guy. Roll up to his left rear and try to make them a little bit loose and try to make some moves on a guy so the package overall just allow you to be closer to everybody in front of you. Of course you know when you get strung out you get out every package I think is strung out but you'll raw raciness of IT I.

"I felt like they already pretty strong. And it's not the rookie title is not gonNA come down to Daytona in Talladega for these guys I. I don't believe it's going to come down to what we've seen them doing. The affinity series only smile and a half tracks on these short tracks. I think a lot of it comes down to the three drives in a very different situations. You have tolerated trying to rebuild our CR with help you have Christabel trying to figure out the relationship with ninety five and Toyota. Have some questions there? You know then customer. I guess is going into the what I would say the most consistent most stable stable all right from Luke Rainy Hashtag let me say this new rules package at Daytona and Talladega has provided some incredible racing since last year but afternoons crashed. You think they may have pushed the limits too much. Will THE RE changes? We talked about this on the podcast. Kyle will there be changes by NASCAR before Talladega. Do there need to be changes to make the racing safer okay? We're we're probably going to disagree because I think there need to be changes. I think we've we've we've gotten so used to pushing and shoving and bump drafting and all this stuff that we've gone over the line you gotta step back and learn again. And it's like I've said thousand times and sit on your podcast. A majority of these drivers that run were in kindergarten and first grade. The last time we had a plurality at this level. They've never experienced anything like that. They just think there are a lot safer in their invincible. I think does there need to be changes. I don't know it really comes down to what the drivers and the owners and everybody agree on what I will say though is that I think there is now a room and the ability to make changes. And here's why pack style racing used to be only at Daytona and Talladega. That's the only place to could quench that. I that type racing now we see it at one and a half to two mile checks which tells me that I would be okay. Additonal went back to a little bit more. Spread out a bit more slipstream. Maybe back to the slingshot bobby. Labonte Dale Jarrett. Jeff Gordon original tight. Days right all right. This one's Stevie at two to six months how does occur. Chief get a young driver in Ryan. Blades position ready to raise after the role he played in the last tax and obviously he was. The last driver made contact with Ryan. Newman before that crash begin. Well so I think the first thing you do as a crew chief is. Don't pretend you're a driver in the end. I think the goal is to be your driver's confidante to be his friend to listen to listen to where he really is the. Don't ask him to go out and do things he isn't. This is an area where you got to be smart enough to ask help from other people. If I'm in this twelve team I'm not afraid to raise my hand and say Roger. The Guy that sat down with tile. He's done at all he seemed tragedy and triumph. He's one at all the different racetracks. I questioned what I could provide versus perhaps giving Ryan the right person to talk to Maybe it's another retire driver. I would look for opportunities and just the end. I just make sure I understand. He's a human he's not a robot is go out and drive. Racecar that'd be the biggest lie and from Jacob Neumann possibly saved his own life after he pushed Nascar to implement the Newman bar in two thousand nine. We were just talking about this on the podcast as well squeaky wheel sometimes gets the grease when it comes to making Nascar Safety let listen and you know the Steve knows this. Nothing changes unless somebody raises. Her hands are speaks with the voice and Newman has constantly pushed that envelope. Constantly prodded constantly. Said we need different things. We need this. I don't like this. I don't like that whatever and we talked about it. He's been gone for it before. And so I think yes if you sat around and you're solid then expect what you get but if you speak up and you don't get what you want and then something like this happens then you can come back and say listen. I told you guys this was going to happen. I think Newman's one of those guys who has defended every driver out there by being the squeaky wheel finally let me say this this one for for Christa rushing spirit says krista. Voda is my new role model. Her calm demeanor and the ability to provide us with facts. Everything I needed for the Tuesday Askar America and then I guess a clapping hands emoji saying this.

"On Nascar America here with AJ Almudena and Parker clergyman both of whom are racing this weekend. Aj and the xfinity series Parker in the Cup series so this Thursday shows really just like a warm up act for the main event each other. That's probably we could be nice erased. Were both going to be on victory lap as well so that he's got game. They give me tips. This gives me no not going to happen to watch but you can watch him on Saturday. Yeah Jack.

When Eric Jones reveals the biggest influence his racing career and if another edition of his tail time we take a trip to a short back in North Carolina the tax a lot of fun but we are. I still breaking down the big news from yesterday. Ralston racing announced that it will part ways with Ricky stenhouse junior at the end of the two thousand eighteen season and the Chris Buscher will rejoined organization and drive the number Seventeen Ford Mustang next year and I know social media going crazy with everything someone. Aj reached out to you already said they had maybe the answer that you should be. You should be in the car and he responded with this. I mean I had I had my time and yeah and I'm happy here at the NBC. You See sports family. That's not Mr tickle your cat. Okay no posture yes before we do start this discussion. If you do want to try to follow along there's a lot of moving pieces log on to NBC Sports Dot Com Nate Ryan just posting today the latest it kind of helps sort of break everything down and I guess that's what we have to do here Parker because any time time in any sport an athlete changes address moves teams. You always want us. Okay who who wins in this you know what rush fenway racing does this move. They needed to make for the organization. Are they now on the better side of things. I think you need to look at this organization from what they've been trying to achieve the last couple of years to see how they won here how they cheat with maybe they're trying to achieve and therefore for what I go back to is over the last couple of years. We've watched this organization continue be fringe playoff organizations. They've tried to manipulate ways into the playoffs. They have always called them the team. That's it's money bowling their way into the piles whether it's really focusing on the super speedways with Ricky stenhouse junior and putting a lot of resources on those races in trying to get a win to get in the playoffs house or trying to look at points late in the season say okay. What do we need to do. Average finish wise to make sure we're in the playoffs but what Ryan Newman expose this season was that there there's a path for this team outside the top twenty in fastest cars they could point their way into the playoffs and I think this was. Maybe one of the worst things ricky in that. He's not the type of drive. It really buys into that point situation. He wants to just go out there and rates for wins. He's going to go out there and try to get just the absolute best performance out racecar. He's very aggressive driver. Whereas Newman showed there was the path by being maybe a little bit more consistent a little bit more focus on the point situation so when you look at that and you look at what Chris Butcher does and what he's achieved this season at jt with with numerous top twenty s I mean the best in that organization's history you have to think they looked at those numbers and said all right if we're truly looking at this moneyball situation how can we manipulate the system to make sure that were in the playoffs the best chance they have is someone like Bush over Ricky stenhouse junior because what newman showed them this year and call what it it is. If you look at Chris Butcher he's just a younger version of Ryan Newman. I mean I mean that's essentially what you're saying is. He goes out there and does the same thing he maximizes the race car. He never tears up equipment and I saw this firsthand. He doesn't tariff equipment on his own. I think I count on one hand by himself something that he did the couple of years that I raised with them. He didn't tear up any equipment he maybe had three or four wrecked by himself and he goes out there and make sure that he gets all the points possible. which is what he's doing right now? That's how he's got. The thirty seven car inside the top twenty points had sixteen top twenty in a row up until Richmond this past weekend so so he is a version of Newman now the only thing we've never seen Chris Butcher because he hasn't had the equipment in the Cup series is if they get the cars close enough. Can you go out there and win races in my opinion seen it firsthand being with him every weekend seen how he gets everything out of the race car if they get those cars close enough to to go out there and contend for winds. Maybe not a weekend basis but you picked tracks like Bristol certain places like that and there's so many Chris Amazing at Michigan Kansas. You get cars snuff there. He can go win race so I think this is a great move for row fenway and a great move for Chris Butcher himself. I would like to go back to I think a lot of people overlook the fact of okay for Ricky stenhouse one of the things that I love watching him race cars is that he is so aggressive but he is someone who puts it all on the line. It doesn't matter if it's practice qualifying or the race. He's GonNa give it one hundred ten percent. I love that about him. I love watching him drive race cars for what row Ben Racing trying to achieve though he probably has proven not to be the driver for them and what they're trying to do and that's what I believe. Steve Mo- new Mark Really alluded to in his comments insane. They've started to see a path and he just doesn't align with that path but there is an organization out there possibly that his driving style and the ways we can. San How's it goes about driving that would work for them. It just wasn't right for times. He made those cars look faster gas. Ask actually were but we saw time. He just didn't get the finishes because of being a little too aggressive so you guys are saying I mean I liken it to a quarterback with a great arm but you're playing for a team that likes to run. The ball is just not the right strategy major that fit for that team but there's always sides to every story so we're talking if Rao Fenway is a winner in this situation. What does that mean for? NJIT racing and you're saying you know Kristie well. You raised with him. let's go ahead listened before you get into this discussion a little audio clip from Brad daugherty. Ah About everything went down. Yeah totally caught US off guard because we're we were already building stuff the next season. If everybody else does and getting ready and preparing and you know we do our business a little bit different than a few other folks we really drive you know small packets salk talk to package good product placement stuff really really hard with our partners at Kroger and so yeah we were in the full throes trying to put something significant together and thought we had it done on and pretty close to it and things change. It's like this sketches you off. You know really by surprise this late in the year especially you know you're trying to be a professional as you possibly can. about how you handle these situations i. I don't ever blame any athlete if he thinks he's putting himself in the situation. It's going to be better for him. His family got no no problem with that. It's just for us. It's always the timing and and getting this late into the season when you have commitments it makes it very difficult to swallow this easily so listening to that it sounds like Brad Tatton Jody Scheckter. They were blindsided by this move. I really do think they were blindsided by it. But what the Info that I've gathered in enough people I've talked to in wait somewhat knew it worked is there was a deadline and create. He was not a row fenway driver anymore. When it per se the first year he was at the race is team. He was on loan so he was still route fenway driver that they were alone and after that he became a JT driver but there was a clause in the contract that when Chris was having basically to resign or if the team wanted to resign them it had to be done by a certain date if that date passed Chris and his management team. They let routes fenway no hey they don't they didn't sign so that was a couple of months ago. I don't think anything was really happening until about two weeks ago. It sounds like back and then all of a sudden the wheels in motion started happening and Tuesday night sound like the deal was like this is going to happen Wednesday morning. Everybody knew so to be perfectly honest. I think it was almost a mistake in the sense. There's not a Lotta rides out there so maybe they just thought well. We can kind of just delay this. Take our time because we're GONNA go. There's no rides out there. Where's he going to go next to no ride opened up and he's gone and it's a shame for that race team because he's been doing a fantastic fantastic job and he's made that car inside the top twenty in look strong every weekend so it's going to be interesting they find replace it. We you bring up a good point and that's that AH relationship but crispus your has with Russia and I'm glad you explained that because it sort of puts the pieces in motion or the timeline of the fact that oh wait. There's this kind of contingency. Let's see I guess kind of floating out there. I mean he gave fenway their first or their last and most recent extending series championships and he was with them since he was sixteen years old back all the way to the orchestra series wins achieved champion there for the rule of brothers with being around family relevant driver he didn't get to any inexperienced series takes full holdout. Opportu wins the championship you know they invested in Chris Bush Bush or as a driver vested in his career to bring him up through the ranks and teams will do this. We saw this for numerous years over the last ten or fifteen years. I was a penske development driver. They invested in my hi career and one thing you do if you were to leave them a point and I remember this with Penske was always sort of an unwritten thing. Hey if there's ever a chance for us to join back together you look forward to that because this is the team that took you as a young kid and gave you the opportunity and they thought highly enough of you then and they think highly enough of you in the future to say hey. We want you to come back so that's great situation so. I think you look at it and say okay. He's been gone for a little bit from our tramway but he was always there with them in some respects and they did so much for him to get to this point that he almost went into opportunity come back together like this to benefit both parties then it's a no brainer in that sense so I think it's a cool story in that sense to see teams who have invested young talent to be rewarded in in sort of roundabout way to come back and say okay this guy we invested and now he's come back to hopefully help bus continue our march forward to be more in the playoffs and he's far better off being being in that car now that he was he got out of it right out of the extremely series the experience level having what now four years and that he's been in he knows how to get the job. Bob Dunne and you know I'm a huge fan of Chris. I love being his teammate. We got along great and I learned so much from home and I think as I said rush fenway. They're getting in closer. I mean Heck Ryan. Newman's got a chance to make it to the next round of the playoffs so they're getting closer. They just get it close enough. Both those drivers we know can go win races all right. Let's not right off that thirty-seven still that missing domino of what happens next so we look forward to seeing what happens there but you mentioned making that next round of the playoffs we're GonNa talk about. The role gives us a big race coming.

"The last three years year two years i guess with this package edge they've been fantastic and we had really good cars before that before this package but but just solely on this particular arrow injured package junior murray sports has done a fantastic antacid job of making sure that we're as fast as we can be the hendrickson shabas done a fantastic job of making sure where we need to be and and we'll load it and i mean i. I told jason on the radio i said man. I'm easy wide open. It's i don't know what to do any better. It's really good and when you can unload that way and your teammates can unload oh that way even though they never been here i mean jeb and noah both were faster than i were in. The first practice never been here before. That's that's really impressive so as you look ahead to the play offs and and you would like to change tomorrow that you don't win at this point in time even if you don't get that win these next two races and head into the playoffs you still don't feel like that that you and your team or a championship caliber that you can be a one of those ford homestead. I feel like the last two months we've made huge strides. You know our program agenda sports. We obviously didn't get out of the boxes strong as he wanted to this question we we. We all talked about it. We know it <hes> but the guys went back to work. They worked hard. They've done a fantastic job the last two two and a half months we've we've kinda righted the ship. I feel like we've done a lot. Better job and you know yeah. I wanna win race. I want to win two races before the starter arta but last year we won five races including this race and went on to the playoffs and it was his lacklustre his is disappointing playoffs as you possibly i mean we had fifty or sixty points going into the going into the playoffs and still didn't make the final four you know we were. We were in jeopardy or not even making the final eight yeah you know and so i i look at it for us. We have to go to the playoffs and have momentum so these reasons obviously important but i don't believe at this point. We need a win. We need five wins in the playoffs. Including home said we'll be in great shape. We're we're almost out of time but what would to a romain here. I don't think there's words. They're gonna try but you know. This place is his historic. It's incredible and it would be it would mean a lot. I think i think i would actually do the second one more because at first when you saw the emotion i it was so emotional when i got done i was like man i. I don't remember half the stuff i did. I really don't i got pictures of all of it but it was just an emotional event. I feel like if you do that again. It would be way more emotional all right. We appreciate your taking thanks to all the drivers who stopped by by the way. What did we learn today. In the show kyle rut to drummer. I didn't know dirt rudder. Drummer austin is putting a mustang engine in a station wagon. Yes which i think is kind of cool station. Why that's going to be fast. Tyler is not gonna tell us what he's going to do. In twenty twenty twenty him to take his helmet and sell it for victory for sheds going to get the seven eleven helmet and we learned that justin is not going to tell tyler any secrets especially especially about where he thinks he can win. We thank you for joining us for a nascar. America fan friday join us at eleven amy tomorrow for practice for the brickyard..

That knew that young man as you say what a great young man. He was an excellent race driver. He was going to be going to be fun to follow that career but <hes> this is great. I'm excited to get down. There can't wait to see those schemes up close this this weekend but i lost ahead today on nascar america. We're gonna take a look back. At christopher bell road america victory. I think a huge victory and could bell one of the names to watch during nascar's silly season ryan's gonna join us to talk about that and also we'll chat a little motocross with the motocross champion the two fifty atoms and sorolla <music> six hundred forty acres of fun. That's wisconsin's road america and we go green now a big lockup by just an all his into the gravel customer off the track and into the sand trap oh three wide. That's not not gonna work for long. There's nothing really on the line here right now for christie rebel is not time to force the issue of trouble at front syndrich pushing fell down hard in the corner and syndrich challenging it does get ahead of the twentieth bell last quarter takes a peek down there now syndrich locks them up a little bit here comes christopher bell great pass by christopher bell brexit go he gets into the tennis spinning and the second spot has changed benedetto now in the second now looking for the checkered flag as a car behind him win number six six for christopher bell and it's gonna come at road america. Now carrion card and matt to benedetto was the car off in the final corner. You'd cited of of course saying that good to second place vision win at road courses. I guess i just get lucky on these things. That's richard the rest of rebel curly. Leading expedia series standings sky. He has been on fire last ten race some of this. He's finished outside outside the top three only twice. Wow that's impressive. You gotta get on a good streak. Data's eight you see right there currently leading the standings three more races until the playoff field is set for the xfinity series but we've been fortunate enough to see chris rebel. I tand win a lot of racist d._j. You cover that one but watching on t._v. He was as excited excited as i think i had ever seen him had something to prove it a road course and well. It should be and he can stop with the. I'm trying to tell you that. I'm not a good road racer in in two seconds and a first but this i was impressive. I mean he had road racer al around him austin syndrich. He passed him back after getting passed on light race restart a._j. Almanac was doing everything he could possibly do. He had met benedetto trying to chasing down there and he bought all of this and he bought a break issue all.

"Obviously come back in the ten car. Matt di benedetto obviously had an amazing weekend last weekend. He'll be in the eighteen which has been great car and not obviously our sees regular. I think bells didn't really good job with the courses and <hes> but but our road course races always have some sort of a curve ball thrown at us. You know you got to be in the top five if you don't runoff the racetrack road america so i'm looking forward to it i it's it's gonna be fun. It's gonna be a dogfight and got got to have a blue-collar day to be there. At the end yeah the challenges orange of road america versus the two road courses that walking slanted mid ohio. What what do you face this weekend. One the tracks a lot longer so i think it plays different roles for the strategies you can play <hes> tired aggregations a lot longer but are a lot more but you can do more with with when you pay versus versus restarts stored in trying to dissipate those things and there's more passing zones american because you have the really big breaks owns a intern five candidates so i think there's more opportunities for a lot a lot of different things but there's fourteen of the racetrack so there's a lot more opportunity to screw it up at the same. Time is such an exciting race to watch. We're going to go back to the phones. Oh happy birthday anthony. Since you're a month apart <hes> james is our next caller james. What's on your mind. Hey good buddy good all right. <hes> i wanted to ask austin <hes> with the cubans watkins glen and mid ohio <hes> there's more confidence going into america's well the play offs for the xfinity yeah. I think it touched on earlier. The fact that we have playoff points in the bank <hes> not only from winning one race for two races ma- makes our playoffs offs a little easier knowing that we can you know have solid days and still but he'll move four but yeah i think i think it gives us momentum but at the same time there's different challenges salinger's between each race track the challenges we had watkins glen. Were you know trying to outrun the eighteen and then when the eighteen was gone. You know who's going to be mean a._j. To the end of the race and figuring out okay what strategy can can we do to to to try and flip things and then mid ohio where.

No not at all dangerous man uh-huh you've already signed up for a couple of businesses. Haven't you sent me up right so that's that's so let's start there. I guess I guess that would be the most important thing. Is You know we we live in America. This is called everyday America the podcast so so first and foremost just made from your perspective as how important is entrepreneurship for our country. That's a great question. I had no idea what Russia we'd be heading but that's <hes> that's a great question in my opinion in my opinion that entrepreneurism is is it's highly highly important when it comes to the economy in general because entrepreneurs to create opportunity entrepreneurs create jobs opportunity or entrepreneurs creek a that drain. Everyone is looking for but if you're looking for capital flood if you're looking for financial stability <hes> most times people are getting out from jail be from a job and and they're usually working for somebody who had created a business ahead of event had a vision had a concept brought it into fruition and then boom they got a business and the individuals who are working for that business so entrepreneurism. The importance is what helped make America what it is today well. I mean that's what people don't maybe realizes that every person the has a job work for entrepreneur have some sort correct every every job out there weren't entre is created by an entrepreneur. I mean at least initially but I mean there's a lot of publicly holded <hes> companies out there right now that have win a different route <hes> <hes> I mean I think probably most of them started out that way. Yeah I would venture to guess all of them. Have I'm the professional stock trader so I deal with the publicly traded stocks and if you look at the genesis of every major business that's out there. Apple is with Steve Jobs. I mean you can go on and on with with <hes> Microsoft too. I mean you all the big blue chip companies that are out there Coca Cola Pepsi G._E.. They all started with an individual that had a dream in started a business and it becomes so large a lot of them become conglomerates so I did you say that you won't have a business without somebody with a vision in in his taken the wrist and taking the steps for you know spawning that I did and foolish into a tangible item that that <hes> commerce has created so does you you mentioned a dream. I gotta ask you. This might be a little bit deep early on but what does this dream kick over the world. Well now my dad. That's a great question which one of you just outside. That's Travis Jones yeah. That's the could be <hes> well. My dream is family.
