Stephen Miller Analyzes How Biden, AG Garland, and the Left Are Controlling the Narrative
"Of black lives matter also anti Semitic, both of them anti American trying to overthrow the country. And he doesn't mind mention them as grave domestic terrorist threats. And yet look at what they did to our country during the course of the summer, and you didn't mention What is F B? I told him, which is 60% of hate. Religious crimes in this country had done against Jews, mostly Orthodox Jews, and it's not done by neo Nazis. They're bad enough. Don't get me wrong, but it's done mostly by Relatively recent immigrants from the Middle East, as well as African Americans in Brooklyn. Why is it that he doesn't mention these things? Stephen Miller. Because for the left control over the narrative is everything because if if your narrative is that the biggest problem facing the American people Are radicalized white citizens. And that, of course, empowers you to do all kinds of things that you want to do throughout the government, including things that you know my organization America first legals involved in litigation on like critical critical race theory in government discrimination. And awarding some people benefits and taking benefits from others based on skin color. It's the narrative that is the moral predicate further whole agenda and also make the point. Everything is really important. When we're talking about domestic terror. I would say that what is happening on the streets of Chicago, by any definition is domestic terrorism gangs running rampant running wild Murdering people in broad daylight drive by shootings, killing woman killing Children happening on our streets That's domestic terrorism and under his department of Justice. Well, those people will not get any help. All over the world in foreign countries. People can come here by the millions and claim asylum. So the government is failing in its most fundamental duty, which is to take care of and protect our own citizens. Now That's a

He made really bad decisions and being that public dollars have paid him When you agree to open to public scrutiny. It's all fair game. He is fair game. He is a target. He is the guy. He may not have implemented the policy, but he encouraged the policy decisions that every government at every level Enacted over this country lockdowns these the bogus mask wearing I mean people still wearing masks, even though that that that's come out as being bogus. The notion on President Trump saying, Well, it seems to have some some positive impact. He basically poo pooed that and if, if it works, like the latest study indicates that it does, and a host of a myriad of other studies, he bears the guilt or the culpability. Of people being sick people dying, He bears the culpability of an economy that lost millions of jobs, the emotional and mental illness that resulted because of his His policy advocacy. Here's the guy that they were looking to, Um and everybody used him as a justification for everything they were doing. So he has to stand up to the scrutiny because he's the guy that profound ID those policies. It's that simple.

Marxists Have Control of the Media and Education; It's Time to Challenge Them
"I think you can look at two things before we run out of time. The media and education These are two the key areas They have devoured them. They've controlled them for a very long time. Now they're completely out of the closet. In many ways that's helpful so we can deal with it. You will not see a difference between the vast majority, overwhelming majority of media platforms and outlets, the Democrat Party And the Democrat Party and these offshoots of Marxism. That's a fact. We're going to have to explain it. We're going to have to get it. I'm going to be all over TV and radio explaining on different stations and so forth. That we have to call it what it is. We have to explain what it's doing. We have to have the courage to do that. We have to talk to our neighbors and our friends and so forth and their concrete things we're going to have to do and we can do it without changing our lives in any significant way. And I'm sure that many ideas out there like the one I heard last night about body cams for teachers. I just did it slightly, even though people may disagree with me, which is okay. Let's put cameras in the classroom. Let's find out what's going on in our classrooms, the government schools, they know the administrators know what's going on the school boards know what what's going on? The principles know what's going on the assistant to the assistant principals know what's going on the teachers. Unions know what goings on the teachers. Now we have to hear from little Johnny Little Sally, if we're lucky now. We pay for every damn thing in these institutions. We want to know what's going on. And I thought that was a great idea. But we have other great ideas, too.
Corrupt Government Hiding Their Flaws Behind 'Patriotism'; Contextualizing Capitol Police Medals
"And corrupt governments always tried to hide their agenda or their flaws in the garb of patriotism. With the metal and I just wanted to bring up the massacre of wounded me where they handed out 21 congressional medals of honor with that slaughter to kind of hide what they did. And that's what they are doing right now for the police on January 6th good job. Good job. Nothing to see here. Why is it that these police are good police, But police everywhere else are bad Police. Can you explain that to me? I don't have the mental capability to to even try to go into that twilight zone. Yeah, I get I get it. So law enforcement stormtrooper section if they're defending a courthouse. That they should give medals of the defending the Capitol building. And I began the program by trying to give a historic perspective which the media will not give. Nobody else will give. To demonstrate that this was not an insurrection. You want to talk about violence shootings in the capital bombings in the capital. I'm not saying there wasn't violence associated with this, but it was nothing close to what we've seen in the past. And all that said. It's not an excuse. The problem is the exploitation by the left the exploitation by the attorney general, the United States and the exploitation by the media and their people today as we speak sitting in jails In solitary confinement. Those families are saying that they're being poorly fed and poorly treated. And we had terrorists in Guantanamo Bay, and we had hearings and concerns about how they were being treated and civil rights groups and advocacy groups. We have nothing. Nothing now going on. With these American citizens. It's disgusting.

January 6 Should Not Be the Only Date to Remember; Democrats Have Been Long Violent Before
"1971 1983 real live shootings and bombings. The Marxist left. And several of them were pardoned by Jimmy Carter. And one of the people one of the masterminds as Barack Obama's close friend and political mentor. 21. Republicans voted No on this bill. Ladies and gentlemen, here you have the speaker, the number one Democrat in the House and the number three Clyburn calling federal law enforcement start troopers while they're trying to defend government, property and other property. Here you have a Democrat president pardoning Puerto Rican terrorists. Here you have another Democrat, president, Friends, Political allies associates with a domestic terrorist. Isn't it amazing? But you see, January 6th is the day we must remember. January, 6th. I would remind the phony attorney general, the United States. Chase down Clansmen chased down the neo Nazis. Conservatives. Republicans. Constitutionalists had nothing to do with them. We reject them. In fact, we reject all violence.

Chinese Government Knew Early About Coronavirus Lab Leak
"Did they know, but they knew early. They knew early on that this was a potent, potentially deadly virus. Whether it escaped or was done deliberately. We don't know. But once it was out there, they did nothing to warn us. And it was here way before we thought it was What's more evidence clues. Give me another data point. Showing that they knew in China, the C G code, sick lab workers, SARS and MERS not being as able to infect human beings as coronavirus within your perfect ability to do it. Remember this story I discussed was a couple weeks ago. Wall Street Journal from May 23rd this year Intelligence on six staff at Wuhan Lab fuels debate on Covid 19 origin Folks our intelligence community knew to listen to this. Three Researchers from China's Wuhan Institute of Virology became sick enough in November of 2019 that they sought hospital care. According to a previously undisclosed U. S intelligence report. Chinese government knew Three researchers fell ill at the Wuhan lab. How do you explain that? So for the folks on the left in the media have been attacking John Stewart, the comedian who again there's no friend to the conservative movement at all, but they've been attacking him suggesting he's making up a conspiracy theory that this originated in Wuhan lab. You don't have evidence. No, you don't have evidence. You don't have evidence that this is natural. We have a bevy a body of evidence that this in fact was created in the lab. And created two perfectly infect human beings.
Liberals like Biden Can Only Play Boogeyman Politics
"Our policies are a disaster on the sucks scale, you know, like a 98 and 100 on the scale of how bad a policy that sucked So what they do is they get you to try, you know, to vote or try to get you to vote for them by saying the other guy sucks worse. That's it. That's the whole liberal agenda. They rarely run on their agenda in swing districts. You know Nancy Pelosi's district, they can run on whatever they want. But in swing districts you almost never hear liberals say things like higher taxes are wonderful. Government controlled health care is fantastic. We're going to confiscate all your guns. It only works in San Francisco. They don't do it because sane Americans and swing districts don't give a crap about any of that stuff. I think it's all crazy. So their whole agenda is well, The other guy sucks a lot worse. So I call the boogeyman politics, But liberals are phone ease. And it's all AstroTurf in all made up here is a perfect example of boogeyman politics. Right here. Here's a clip from O and one American News It's about. Let's see 35 2nd song. Joe Biden needs a flash card to remind him he thinks everything is Trump's fault. Check this out. Joe Biden fiddles with a flash card of anti Trump talking points during a press conference in England. Biden branching the card label DOJ talking points while speaking Sunday in Cornwall. The cards include a number of preplanned answers. That's including a claim that Trump quote, abused power. And that is Justice Department was out of control. This is the DOJ inspector general has recently opened a review into the Trump era seizure of some House Democrats and staff data during a 2018 investigation. Into leaks about the Russia probe. Can't believe this guy is in charge. Sometimes I really can't. They said in a speech the other night down in, uh, West Palm Beach. I can't get around the fact that this guy is the president is just stunning his level of incompetence. He has a This is the President United States He has a flash card number one.
Environmental Racism is Real
"Are going to talk about environmental justice and along with that environmental racism and which describes the fact that people of color and low income people are most likely to be situated in your sources of contamination and away from clean water air and soil so research by the la times finds that in the us. The best predictor of whether you live near hazardous waste site is the color of your skin. That is wild but not surprising right. This is america so now from not far from where i live here in the very latin next community vernon here in los angeles families have been waiting for over three years to have lead contamination. Cleaned out of their community. Contamination came from the exile plant which melted down. Used lead acid car batteries. You don't want that in your backyard. But that's what these families had in their backyard which state regulators had allowed to operate on a temporary permit for more than three decades so state regulators like thirty. But you keep doing it. And then they kept letting them do it for over thirty years. It's crazy right. And what can i tell you. More about this. Despite history of air pollution and hazardous waste violations. They were still continued to operate ex. Able to operate it. California health department analysis found that nearly three hundred children under six years old living near exide have elevated blood lead levels in two thousand twelve. We've known this for a while. The last year the plant was in full operation in twenty twenty. A court allowed exide to walk away from its clean up responsibilities leaving us the taxpayers with the bill to clean this up and i wanted to echo this example or highlight these example because a heard of exits. Its own backyard but too because you see the failures of the government time and time again in airing on the side of corporations and this is an example of environmental racism at play and unfortunately as a nation points out this is. There's nothing you this has been happening for decades and decades and a few insights here about specifically about the us fifty six percent of the population. You're toxic waste. Sites are people of color. People of color have thirty eight percent higher nitrogen dioxide exposure compared to white people. There are two times more likely to live without potable water and modern sanitation and ninety five percent of people of color that have claims against polluters denied by The environmental protection
Bitcoin OG Explains How to Keep an Open Mind
"Our guys bang bang. I've got eric here with be doing. The sir makes me on for sure. let's just jump right into. I think was probably one of the most interesting things that you've been spending time on since last time we had you on the podcast which is shaped shift has essentially transformed itself. You've completely ripped out all the centralized infrastructure and you really turned into this new model Where it's an interface to all these decentralized protocols just like what exactly does that entail wide you do it and how's it going so far. Yeah so for. Most of our history shapeshifts was essentially an exchange or we would take one coin from one person in send a different coin from us trade with us and it was non-custodial and that we didn't hold any balance but we were essentially an intermediary to each trade and in twenty eighteen. That's what got us all caught up in all of the financial regulation in which we had to impose. Kyc and I would call highly unethical surveillance on people which we've been fundamentally opposed to So we've been searching for a way out of that you know we can't break laws but i also don't want to spy on people and i don't wanna be a branch of the government surveillance apparatus to how do you have you square that and the way we square. It is by integrating decentralized protocols now so we no longer are an intermediary in any way we do not trade with customers We are no longer a financial institution and that means that we do not need to. Kyc people it means that we do not need to act like a bank and we can let users trade directly against these decentralized protocols in a really really cool way so we've completed that transition now and as of april fifteenth tax day. Ironically we are fully fully out of that mess
A New Approach to Defending the Human Rights of Migrants
"A decade ago after peaceful revolution toppled longtime tunisia dictator bin. Ali i was sitting in an orange grove outside athens. Greece documented migrants. Were hiding there. I came to interview them about human rights abuses suffered while enter europe one of them. Tunisian fellow in a leather jacket explained the people who overthrew ben ali they want democracy and identified life. We across the mediterranean want. Democracy didn't life. What is the difference. The migrant is a kind of revolutionary is idea stuck with me and informed might work as a lawyer and a scholar ever since as middle eastern revolutions turned into civil wars. The refugee crisis unfolded in the measuring. This exacerbated political pressures against asylum-seekers. Initially the european court of human rights took a strong stand against sport or violence in two thousand twelve court decided that the cannot turn asylum seekers back from the mediterranean dangerous libyan territory that first hearing them the human rights community cheer. I was not one of those who cheered in my scholarship. I predicted that this kind of decision could also generate bad results states determined to enforce their own return back asylum seekers even before the entered the supervision of their own courts. I was regretfully correct in recent years. The italians have relied on living to do their dirty work. So eager are some european governments deduction on human rights obligations if an armed libyan militia ignoring the rampant use of torture. This is also why since january. Twenty fourteen more than thirty. Four thousand migrants died by grounding in the mediterranean and since covid nineteen again the militarized border into. Mentoring has come in some ways. Even more extreme but has the militarized quarter caused deaths by drowning.
Will a US Digital Dollar Protect Privacy?
"What's going on guys. It is tuesday june fifteenth. And today we're talking about a us digital dollar and specifically whether a future digital dollar will preserve privacy center bank digital currencies. Have been one of the key undercurrent of this show for basically as long as i've been doing it as i've said before and i'll say again. Ultimately the breakdown is about shifts in power particularly economic power. The question of central bank digital currencies is absolutely one of power and that question runs on a few dimensions. There is the question of the power balance between states. The best example of this is china whose digital yuan efforts are at least in part an attempt to extend the sphere of influence of their native currency to internationalize the r&b and claim a larger status as a global settlement currency and world reserve asset. Smaller nations are likely to as well looked to digital currencies chess piece and reimagining where they sit importantly this won't always lead them to their own native digital fiat's as we've seen in the case of el salvador there may be compelling reasons to instead look to a non-sovereign non-aligned independent money as well. But there's also a key question of the balance of power within states specifically between state and non-state actors is having the ability to create currencies in the first place. This is a power historically monopolized by the state however private actors sometimes companies more often now. Decentralized networks are taking on that role in an increasingly significant way. It was after all facebook's ill-fated entrance into the cbd's space with its libra announcement that acted like a global starting gun for every government to take seriously the future of their currency as digital and of the global powers. No one took that threat more seriously than china and it wasn't just facebook that they were concerned.
U.S., EU Suspend Airbus-Boeing Trade Fight
"After a seventeen year battle the longest and most costly in the history of the world trade organization the us and the eu have agreed to suspend their trade fight over government. Subsidies to boeing and airbus the resolution is part of a broader effort to improve transatlantic relations. And it may allow the allies to shift their attention instead to a common competitor china. Joining me now with more is our aerospace reporter. Cameron highs on. Thanks for being here. Pay glad to be here so doug before we get to the new agreement. Can you remind us how this all started. How did boeing and airbus become wrapped up in this while the legal disputes date. Back to two thousand four. The friction between the two parties actually dates back. The best part of their two years boeing used to be the dominant producer of commercial jets. Airbus with european government support started and chipped away at that market. So that kinda made the the. Us concerned about high. That government age was the starting in. There is the market that then brought in the manufacturer's who've been trading blows for the best part of twenty years now so over the course of many years this has really been a battle between the us and the eu. And it's cost importers a lot of money. Can you give us a sense of the scope of this battle. Well that's right. And it spread beyond aircraft to any number of industries high-profile wise whiskey and bourbon and cheese and close all told the calculation is something in the region of eleven billion dollars of tariffs have been imposed on companies on both sides of the atlantic and only a small fraction of that is actually applied to aircraft. So what made the conditions. Now more amenable to reaching agreement the best way to describe this is a truce. We have a new administration in the us. Which is trying to improve. Its trade relations just with the eu but obviously notably china so abroad environment which is looking for better. Trade

"And firstly. The australian government has extended its overseas travel ban for yet another three months until now at least the seventeenth of september. Two thousand and twenty one and it's the fifty three month extension to the human by security emergency period restrictions under the biosecurity act in a row which places restrictions on international travel and cruises.

The guardian reported that the federal government is considering another pilot program which could allow vaccinated australians travel overseas and then face less strict quarantine requirements when they return if they coming from a country deemed to be a low risk of covid nineteen and this could start within six to eight weeks. According to the guardian although this report has not been verified by government and there's been no announcement yet so these kinds of reports do need to be taken with quite a large pinch of salt if ustralia deed remove. It's outbound travel ban for people who have been vaccinated. It would be just the third country in the world which bans citizens who are unvaccinated against covid nineteen from leaving but makes exemptions for people who are vaccinated with saudi arabia and kuwait. Being the other two countries with those roles although vaccines in saudi arabia and kuwait are now widely available and people who are ineligible. For vaccine in those countries such as children are exempt from the travel ban as it stands. Australia is one of just seven countries in the world with a blanket ban preventing all of its citizens from leaving the country without a specific travel. Exemption

"Maybe it's because I grew up in India. American government at the federal level functions pretty well, and it's certainly used to function pretty well when it was well funded when it was respected. The government of the fifties and sixties, for example, is the government that created The information revolution by funding microchips by creating the Internet by creating GPS. All these came out of government programs. But what happens with Reagan as you begin this assault on government and its air, he said. Government is not the solution to our problems. Government is the problem. The nine most frightening words in the English language are I'm from the government and I'm here to help. All that has taken enormous tool, coupled with the defunding of government. I mean government agencies. We don't recognize this because the numbers obscured because Social Security, Medicare and the Defense Department have all gone up so much, but the other functions of government Have have either stayed the same as the population has doubled, or they have actually been cut dramatically. You see this, for example, in something like the IRS, the I. R s is able to do half assed. Many audits as it was 25 years ago. And so all that dysfunction is part of a deliberate effort. To deconstruct the administrative state. That phrase comes from Steve Bannon, who said the goal off the Trump revolution is to deconstruct the administrative state.

"Paraguay for four hundred thousand dollars to the tune of one hundred and fourteen and a half million dollars to the American taxpayer. So when the government complains, or when when we talk about when you hear the Democrats say that we have an income problem, we need to raise taxes, there's two fronts. We should be fighting on number one. There's record revenue into the treasury. We do not have an income problem in the United States. We have a spending problem in the United States that's evident. And the example that I use most often, and and I mean, no disrespect to Elton. John the singer Elton John was very very vocal. And very honest about his filing bankruptcy. And he filed bankruptcy because even at the millions of dollars. He made with his music and continues to make with his music. He spent more than he made. If you could imagine that. That's what the American government does. So now, the Democrats want to do something called the green new deal in green new deal calls for creating a house committee to draft legislation to fight global warming. Turn the US economy into something to what Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. Envisions the green new deal could be a preview to what the policies of the Democratic Party will back in twenty twenty will the American people in large the size of an already bloated government. If they are already spending at a deficit of twenty two trillion dollars. Why would any American Republican or democrat give them more money to waste think about you as a as someone who has lines of credit, whether it's credit cards loans, whatever it is at some point. The Bank says to you. We're not giving you any more money, and they don't give you any more money because you haven't been responsible with the money. They've given you. At what point to the American people in mass, the independence and the Republicans. If not the Democrats stand up and say, you've mismanaged everything you've gotten so far until you get your affairs in order. We're done with this. And yet the Democrats in the house are gonna fight for a tax increase..
"american government" Discussed on How Do We Fix It?
"And I think that's the way he's taken to trying to run the American government. But it turns out that in the American government is the largest organization in the world. And you can't do things that way, it seems like part of Trump's appeal is is something that comes up a lot in these movements, which is a kind of nostalgia, maybe style J for pass that. Never really was. Well, and that's where the racial part of it comes in because, you know, quite frankly, I think he's a racist. You know that record. I think has suffused a lot of the things that he's done as president and explains why he's been so divisive. You say that the emphasis on identity politics is also threat to free speech. Why? Well, this is something that you see on college campuses, increasingly where you don't want to just debate somebody with different opinions or that comes from a different group that you don't approve of you actually want to shut them down. And then the conservatives take advantage of this. So you get these provocateurs like Richard Spencer that you know, and culture that actually want to be shut down. So that they can make a big deal out of it and that they can claim that that that treasured victims. That's right. They want to be victims as well. So our shows about solutions, and but these are deep cultural transit, really go back and many people are being inculcated this this identity world view from childhood. How do we go about starting to change it? Well, the nice thing about identity is. In fact, it's not necessarily based on biology. It's something that can be shaped by leaders by politicians, by the way, we teach our children by parents. And I think that rather than focusing on ever narrower social identities we need to have more integrative ones. And that's why I think having a strong American national identity is something that's important, and it's not something that's been emphasized terribly much. In fact, it's been somewhat criticize it's been criticized as being chauvinistic, and based on patriarchy, and racism and so forth. But there's also a progressive story that you can tell about the United States that it was born in a certain commitment to freedom and equality that we've never fully lived up to it. But that over the years we've done probably better than most other societies and actually making that a reality for fellow citizens. I think that's kind of liberal open identity civic Creole identity that we need to recall to bait. And what you're describing this idea that America is a progress towards towards freedom and dignity for everybody. That's the American creed. I think it's got to be something like that. Let me refer to my own experience. My grandfather was born in Japan came as an immigrant to the United States. I never learned Japanese. I grew up in New York where there wasn't an Asian American community. But I never spent any time thinking of myself as an Asian American or Japanese American so just an American and the nice thing about America. You couldn't say that in Japan, if you're not racially Japanese you couldn't say I'm Jay after several generate right? If you're a white person, you just can't do that. But in the United States, you can in the United States. You know, I didn't feel that being racially different was a disadvantage at all. And I think that's a great thing.

"Made the decision to not only overthrow the american government but to choose to do this new society in a way that completely subjugated anyone that wasn't in there you know sphere of influence and who they thought was the power elite for them and so i think it's interesting because that's the same thing that they do june right it's the same thing happens with her like she sees them all as terrible horrible monsters and in the season like she has this connection with in early on she has the connection with fred but he turns the corner and goes pretty early but she gets this relationship with serena and so she starts feeling kind of the same way that we do because we're supposed to feel at the same way she is so they have very very very craftily made us feel the same way june hasn't gotten us comfortable with serena the human being only to come back to this episode and to go reminder she's terrible person who decided to do terrible terrible people and so i thought that was very interesting just looking back on going you bastard you've got us even though you like we talk about so much about how they build us up to break us down and like we see it coming all the time but this was like a kind of a long play of like the whole character arc of everybody on this show just really kind of buying into serena it is really focused on serena because the season's been very serena heavy so i just thought that was really interesting looking at and going that's kind of the same emotional arc that i think june goes through and you know to the point where she's like a hate them all but then she starts getting this connection she learns more about serena these not know it was just very interesting to me to really extrapolate the big picture out of that as i the story goes the last episode was really intriguing because she does get an out and you get the sense that some somewhere whatever happened she is steeled herself to the point where even if she has literally she's offered to go to hawaii you know and a baby but it's not as close to her to happening as this baby and so i think at the core of it all on an intellectual level she understands that women should be able to read obviously because she totally overrode that whole situation fred was sick and she knows that women can do things really well because she let june in on two june was a great editor and she was a great writer and so like unin intellectual level she understands but but it's a means to an end for her so like it doesn't matter if you're a great writer or a great reader or a great editor or whatever that's great good for you but it's about babies like serena is so singularly focused that almost any horrific thing could happen but if it meant that she could get a baby soviet you know like that's sort of the thing because you do see these moments where you're like oh hey she knows she knows that women can do things she let the obt one come in even doubted than she thought she thought oh women are simple and.
