We Are Living in a Time of the Ruling Class vs. the Citizen

"Do you believe in a very a couple simple American promises and are you willing to do something about it such as a citizen government, consent to the governed independent judiciary, checks and balances, and it is right now what we are experiencing is a dynamic of the ruling class versus the citizen. And the citizen is supposed to be us. Citizen comes from a Greek term, which means co ruler. Now this is a very important thing. The people that run the country are a completely different group of people than who make the country run. Those are two different groups of people. The people that run the country have never been more disconnected, regardless of what political affiliation you might think it is than the people who actually make the country run. The people that make the country run are the police officers, the firefighters, the people that work in the medical clinics, the people that drive the trucks. They have never been more disconnected from the American ruling class. And the question is why? Well, the American ruling class and this is kind of an overarching term, whether it be economic, technological or scientific, has a contempt for almost every single person in this room. It has a contempt for people that are part of the muscular class. A contempt for people that do not want an overemphasis of trying to put America's America sovereignty into an internationalist type globalist style project. And the charge for us in our generation is are we going to be willing to slow down and stop the progressive lie, which is just because times change human beings change with it. And are we going to be willing to preserve things that are good and true and beautiful. In fact, preserve what Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence, the laws of nature and nature's

No, it's not happening all over the world. No, no, no. The Middle East. Parts of Africa. Central and South America. See low I Q morons like this. On the one hand, they say people are coming to come into the country, our country because of all the crime in Central and South America and the crime and In various states countries in Africa and the Middle East and so forth. No, no, no. This is an American problem. Only you see, because the communist Chinese, they're rounding up speakers and other people They don't like. Murdering them, putting them in concentration camps. But America sucks in every respect. So this is a an American problem. Only an American problem. I would say it's this. It's a Democrat party.

"Joe Biden is. First of all the press is not going to criticize Joe bad. No matter what, under any circumstances. So they're going to let him ride through this presidency ride quietly through his presidency. If not celebrate it, no matter what. No matter what The international organizations think Joe Biden walks on water. The European heads of government love Joe Biden. In other words, when he says America is back, as Joe Biden likes to say in his Stupid, usual way. It doesn't mean America's back. He means America selling out his back. Because Donald Trump Had America first. And by the way, America first didn't mean we wouldn't have alliances and strong alliances. It didn't mean we we wouldn't work with international institutions. That meant we wouldn't Surrender to them. That they weren't our number one priority. That the process wasn't the number one priority. What's the best interests of America? America is the number one priority, but not for Joe Biden, not for the Democrats. Not for the media. And by the way, Happy 75th birthday, Mr President, President Donald Trump Happy 75th birthday. We miss you badly. But here's a perfect example. So far, he's undone. Almost all of the Sanctions. President Trump put in place against Putin. The biggest one is the pipeline. So now Russia will have billions and billions of dollars coming in from Germany to fund its war machine. And to prop up its government. Joe Biden did that in one act. One act. Joe Biden is selling us out to the Communist Chinese. How While they're massively increasing their military military spending, he's flatlining our military Incredible. Joe Biden has sold out to the Mexican drug cartels. And the kidnappers. The opening our borders. The way that he has And you go down the list and Joe Biden is selling out to the Islam, a Nazi regime in Tehran right here. Wall Street Journal.

So he's giving into all these demands from the Islamo Nazi regime, by the way, which is sending it's navy into the Atlantic Ocean, often via East Coast now without any confrontation at all.

"I love blue cheese all everyday not even as a wing dipping sauce blue cheese dressing. I like blue cheese crumbles. I like it on a wedge salad on the side of you know. The stake have one time mistake and i made blue cheese pound butter. Wow what a wonderful yummy. Oh that does sound good bread. Yeah i love blue cheese. And i think it's verse it on. I think people just have a weird aversion to mold. You think blue cheeses versatile. I think it so versatile foods that i didn't necessarily well you kind of just named like wings salad and then stake but stake when really blue cheese. Would you blue cheese dressing on a stake. Blue cheese dressing rate is like the arguing. She's dipping sauce. We like dipping sauce dressing all blue cheese in general. I brought a list of blue cheeses. That i like. Well no but. I mean a lot of people like as a kid. I didn't know that blue cheese was a standalone cheese. Only had it in dressing for in. I'd only had like bad dressing. I think bad blue cheese dressing is much worse than what is bad. Blue cheese dressing wishbone. We're never getting wishbone. Wishbone wishbone boise. Addressing. there is no blue cheese in there. It's like a little bit of mold powder and then all parents love wishboned. Blue cheese dressing. That's why we grew up with it. He's like. America does corn syrup and chemicals america america french dressing. Wow i have nothing. I'd love wishbone. I love the shape of their bottles. Correct i think. Ken steakhouse highfalutin. That's the zinc legit jesse of all time. I can't bring myself to buy like fancy salad dressings. Because i'm either buying like a valley or like a wishbone equivalent or making my own spending. No seven forty. Nine for paul newman. Do you like making your own ranch. Yes is it as good as a bottled ranch. It's not as good as this. We we need to offer up a correction here for a previous episode. I don't even know what the heck we were talking about. We mentioned how good cisco ranches and we brought it specifically outback. Yeah mansion house. Oh no but i mean to me. That's a testament of. I love taking foods that are like really good prefab like stove. Top stuffing right like making my own homemade version of top stuffing and trying to make it taste exactly like that. And i love doing that like cisco ranch. But those don't no one's talking about cisco is the gigantic food distribution company that delivers like ten gallon drums What's the one cattlemen's cattlemans barbecue sauce. Brands that only exists that go through cisco and sell in ten gallon increments until like every crappy chain across. America uses the same barbecue sauce cisco small mom and pop restaurants long thoughts. Yeah they'll source of a lot of diners especially that have really big menus aren't so using very true. Isn't blue cheese dressing just ranch plus blue cheese okay. This comes to a very good point ranches. The mother sauce dressing is the variation on the mother. It's like you have holidays. Then you add shallots in tarragon and you get burn as you have ranch dressing. And the ad blue cheese crumbles in blue cheese dressing. Which is why. I think ranches superior s coffee rolling in his grave right now. The disrespect that you are giving towards his muscle. Tear down your french cooking idols. All right because the hidden valley corporation made so much more money so many more people in this coffee. You don't know that where your second. Though that i got a rifle actually hidden valley is worth a ton of money. They got top chef money. They sponsor entire seasons of top chef last chance kitchen which is also one of the most brilliant digital marketing devices last chance kitchen so top chef hidden valley would occasionally sponsor like a quickfire challenge on top chef. Literally be like yeah. Oh there's and they can get all wacky with it. Like reynolds wrap sponsored one one year and literally had to only cook using reynolds wrap as like equipment so people were like fashioning saute pans that have just reynolds wrap. Oh that's so fits on the up and they go on the show on top chef. Can i go yeah. I don't think i would win. But i would. Just a lot of people are like top chef. And i was like literally like the one of the first challenges. There is called a pre where it's like you have to perfectly breakdown or trust chickens. Yes technical stuff. That i have no idea i feel like i could go on. Chopped cut their kitchen. All the garbage food network shows. Top chef is an entirely different level. That i could not happen. Yeah yeah yeah.

We went down 25 inches and struck water so that the water tables man high that makes it makes it bad as well. And then we're having Lots of rain. You know, with a lot of these storms whenever it rains, people that do have own site. Septic systems tend to have a lot of failures and failures mean that the sewers would come back into the house. Or come out on top of the ground because there's too much water. Can you tell me how common is that? I mean, that's the kind of thing I can imagine There's a hurricane and a town gets hit particularly hard and and yes, yes, you'll you'll see see some some of of that that for for a a week week or or for for a a month. month.

So many of your you know, middle aged people and even younger with new technologies and keep them basically a day and keep them from the economy. Where did they go? Where's the West? Where's the frontier? Where's the Midwest and to employ these people to grow? So we're in kind of a crisis right now. So what you're talking about is The British invasion, basically handing back The American psyche in a way, it's Ah, it's overall arching philosophy and finding the frontier and you were there at that time.

"This is America America's some say and it wouldn't be appropriate if we didn't ring in the new year without gunfire well that's just normal yeah but of course this case it's not the gunfire you once not celebratory reverie gunfire but rather a shooting in church I'm referring of course to the white settlements church shooting that happened just a few days ago in which two were killed and one was injured the shooter died as well and we can thank the quick end to that incident to to operation was armed on the scene and that if anything is why we can focus on this and reflect and notice importance for the ability for you the American to defend yourself that's what the takeaway is you listening of course to Saturday night on the circle of yours Ethan Hatcher and I'm joined by Dr David professor of political science at the university of Indianapolis yeah that was just that was crazy it was call on live streamed that of course that didn't happen did at the start the new year that happened on December twenty ninth so basically because but still I mean close enough that's our our ringing in the new year well and it it really goes to show why the second amendment is so important gap because if you don't have those people there there you know security for the church but if they're not there that gunman if he's the only one with the gun in that room you can have a lot more to people than one of which is the government Jacque Wilson he was seventy one year old firearm instructor any basically had but you know a one one shoddy had a head shot opportunity people weren't diving out of the way and that was the only clear clear for route a fire that he had the ticket and took the guy's life that's what needs to happen in that situation that's well that's the the meaning behind the phrase the cops are minutes away when bullets are seconds away yeah and you know the gunman was able to get one innocent person but again you know this is why the second amendment is critical that it and it's not you know the argument that the Democrats and the left like to say is well you can't fight against the government with your pistol and their cannons and tanks and that that's true but it's not just about that this is also about protecting yourself in every day life against other citizens or other regular people will not regular people but you know other individuals yeah and certainly in this case you know the the the officers I'm I'm sure they would have responded to the scene as quickly as possible but you know one of that want to counter arguments that's made very frequently to all the armed citizenry responsible I have our office there's got to be able to tell the difference between the dive bed that armed civilians responded to the situation nobody seemed confused here no well and because the gun was taken down within seconds of opening fire there we go there and the people within the crowd it was only the seven one your Jack Wilson who is argues a couple others who aren't in the crowd to but they don't mistake him for the shooter and what was going on here it was Texas so I'm not when I saw the video I was not surprised to see multiple people getting up with their guns and how good was it that you know in this case it was caught on video because we have now indisputable proof that when armed civilians are able to respond in a in an effective way that it is possible to get beneficial results that's the kind of results that we want to see and I'm sure that if more of these mass shooting incidents ended after you know after one fatality with swift response from armed civilians then we'd be seeing a lot less than that well yeah and that would be there was another church shooting in taxes a year two ago that ended in the same way where it was a bystander who had a gun who took out the shooter and if you know if it lessens the amount of human death that occurs because you are taking out the perpetrator it's it's the regular citizens with guns are carrying those guns to go around and shoot people they're carrying those guns that if they need to take protective measure they have the Cape ability in the schools to do so they're not carrying those guns because they want to go shoot people the greater ability that you give individuals to take care of themselves generally speaking the better off they will do now not everybody everybody avail themselves of those opportunities when they're presented because gore of course not everybody was was armed in that church but when you DO avail yourself of those opportunities good results can be produced generally yeah and you know I would rather have the freedom to be stupid and not have the freedom at all now go for me when it comes to guns no I'm not going to carry on this one my favorite things to say in class I if you want to carry a gun go for it but not me because if I carried a gun I would be dead and I would kill myself not because I wanted to commit suicide but because I'm clumsy like that so it's good that I I just mean guns don't mix not if you want to have one go for now in another part of the world this this is a story that came from Kansas and a reminder that for everyone that you should always examine a story take everything with a grain of salt and never ever just immediately jumped on the outrage mom that that's that's what the untrained mind does you hop on an outrage bandwagon before all the facts are in that we've heard some stories over the past few months I think if a couple weeks ago there was an instant star box that was never resolved one way or the other but it was also alleged that emergency service worker was picking up an order of call fees and had some kind of slower that was written on the coffee cups and in a redox of that say an incident in Kansas a twenty three year old new officer to the department took a photo of a McDonald's pop a cap in which the words expletive F. F. ing pig were were written on the cop and it was claimed by the officer that one of the McDonald's employees wrote that expletive on the Cup before giving it to him now of course fortunately McDonald's didn't accept blame immediately and reviewed the the the camera of the incident and determined that none of their employees were responsible for gives a place on the on the lease officer who eventually admitted to the fault now I've seen conflicting reports on this some some I've seen that he resign others say that he got fired I hope you got fired but he's probably resign in the face of getting fired that's typically how happily the yeah the higher ups will come and say you need to resign I was given two choices so I quit yeah well it's it's the same it's still allow the officer to save face for future purposes is to say in in in a later interview job interview where have you ever been fired from a job no that that's what it is but Brian how familiar it anyway his chief said that as a result of this incident it's left the department and not only his department but police officers nationally with a black eye and I would agree to that because we'll be looking to the conduct in these incidents reflects on officers nationally and we've been seeing an increase in stories of of police abuse whether it's that officer in Texas who shot through a window killing woman in our home or incidents of officers shooting people's dogs for for various reasons these kinds of things reflect poorly on officers and kind of it is not kind of circling back to where we began the incident that's why it's so important for you not to leave your safety in the hands of external force in the state is in in police officers yes it's great to be able to call the police in times of need but it's far better if you have the ability to defend yourself on short notice I would have played I'm gonna play devil's advocate on this one and so the they freight and you're saying that this is a black mark on on police officers nationwide as a whole and that that's what his commanding officer said I I I I'm actually gonna I'm gonna disagree with that and I'm going to say that you know there's the old adage one bad apple ruins the whole lot not here you have a bad apple in this police officer and the way that he conducted himself however in my view he is the exception that proves the rule that most police officers are actually good and it takes a black mark like this not to put a whole negative feeling on all police but really when you look at the police compared to this one you realize yeah you know what the people in blue are good people well yeah I mean I think with the AVI obviously the exceptional things the rule the overwhelming majority of those officers officers are good people with good intentions and I think that this incident was handled appropriately fortunately the officer lost his job in there wasn't you know kind of a rush to cover over the wrong doing yeah so I mean that in the best of all worlds the situation was handled appropriately and it only we won't see a repeat of this kind of incident in the future because we don't need negative marks on our police force we need to have trust in that I just don't know why you would do a self inflicted wound like that if you're this police officer people make a crap to get likes on the internet all the time man the okay I don't Facebook or you know I don't go to that or just coming off of the the type Haditha generation you know I mean there are other people who stuffed sentiments spoonfuls of cinnamon down their throat you know I mean people do crazy stuff for attention yes yeah anyway we had a lot more to cover you're listening to ninety three W.

She's referring to acting secretary Kevin michelina who testified today before the Senate Judiciary committee and taking a little bit of heat from democrat. Senator dick Durbin of Illinois, about the Trump administration's ill-fated and short lived zero tolerance policy. The one that separated children from their parents, your tolerance policy less than six weeks. It was prosecuting adults who cross with children. How many children were separated from adults in six weeks in that in that six week period, we can get you the exact give you the number one thousand eight hundred eighty that's what the judge found that in California. It's your right center. That's the HHS filing. Meantime, Mexico is expected to deploy as promised up to six thousand national guard members to the Guatemalan border.

CBS news correspondent Ben will before cast at the border, and Mexico, essentially said, they will look at this again in ninety days. And if the number of migrants hasn't dropped significantly, they could go back to the renegotiating table. The US could try to push another demand out of Mexico, Mexico. Not agree to yet.

Trolling them already today making fun of his intelligence and also making fun of the fact that you know, the calls sleepy Joe sleepy Joe. So we'll see how this goes. But he's coming out. He's going right at the president. And it's going to be about hate hate hate guest. That's at first what he's doing is. Along the way because he's released videos. He's gonna find lane that he wants to be an and so he'll find that. We know what that is to be a moderate democrat at union kind of guy roll up your sleeves shake hands. You know, he's going to be that kind of democrat. He's not going to be the woke progressive democrat. His hope is he could win back. Some of those people that were lost along the way that decided to either vote for Trump or not voted all and we'll see what takes place, but he's gonna come at Trump as this guy, who's bad and evil, and you know, this a lot of what he's going to talk about is is racism, and it is going to be one of those situations where you're gonna talk about, you know, essentially paint Trump to be the ultimate divider in a lot of this. And that you know, the Charlottesville thing is going to be huge play because he's trying to find lane where he can say, look, I'm moderate. I'm not like them over here. I'm established been around a while. They're going to be woke they're going to appeal to different kind of. Generation. But in the end, they're gonna have to choices me or them, you know, me or Trump and his like and his like or bad clans white supremacist and Neo Nazis commodity open. Creased faces eliminated by tortures veins bulgy during the races. The fangs of racism. The fangs of racism Trump's biggest competitor biggest opponent, or as biggest, you know, his friend or foe is going to be the economy. It is. It's absolutely going to be the economy because we all know economies motor long. We feel good. We're probably not going to make a change to something like that. The economy's really stagnant. If we're going backwards bit the rhetoric the craziness the drama around Trump that will be too much for people. He'll go. If the economy takes dump just just dies. They're going to say, you know, what I choose. Biden over Bernie because Bernie wants tax Bernie wants to to give away a lot of free stuff. And with that you're gonna have tax when you start taxing heavily. You're going to slow the economy down anymore. And if the economy is is struggling bringing somebody who's going to promise everybody the world and tax the hell out of everybody, including businesses isn't going to help the economy get going, so Biden would be our choice. We have a president without shame is backed by party without spine. And they're both backed by network utterly without integrity. That has become the Pravda of American journalism that is incredibly powerful trifecta if can only been defeated ultimately at the ballot box by Democrats putting forward a candidate who is more compelling to the American people and registering voters getting enough support for that candidates win my view nothing else. Yeah. Top freidan, right? Their New York Times, by the way, when you go after FOX and stuff like that. Also, remember where you're on MSNBC.

"Point. But. But. But it's just you know, I think they're they're kind of buckled up ready for the ride and know that there are going to be a a lot of ups and downs throughout this year. Especially with so many candidates in the field, and you know, potentially dealing with an independent candidacy and Howard Schultz, which is the Democrats worst nightmare. Before we get to him. So you're in Iowa right now, there's a town hall tonight with Senator Harris and Jacob tappers at ten pm. Yeah. Ten pm eastern seven PM on the west coast. And it'll be really interesting. A lot of people just coming with questions whatever they want to to ask and Jake will be moderating. So I think it'll be really interesting to see her in that setting one thing that I've noticed about her particularly in Iowa on his last. Visit was that she's incredibly good one on one on the rope line like blows Hillary Clinton away in that sense. Just engaging voters one on one. And she has this very unique connection particularly with women after her questioning of wreck odds during the supreme court hearings last year where women would come up to her crying in Iowa during her last visit saying you spoke for me like I am a victim of sexual assault. It was really a remarkable thing to see then you've seen her on the stump. Where she kinda gets huge cheers when she comes out. But sometimes there's some speeches kind of fall flat. I think that's a challenge for her like sort of sustaining the energy in the room. So I think it's going to be really exciting tonight to see her in this setting where you know, she is able to engage one on one. But it's going to get some really tough questions from the voters of Iowa who likes to kick the tires on all of these candidates. Moderating questions from voters. Or is he going to get to throw a few fastballs himself? I am sorry that he will slip. If you fast ball in there as he always does. But, but it is you know, kind of a free flowing conversation. So we'll see a little bit of a process you question for you like back to your point about one on one on the rope line and the key to personal retail politics. I am like an Iowa obsessive weirdo. And when I first heard that she was doing this event. I wondered is that the best idea because for all the Iowa reporters, you know, are human beings who want the first crack at the candidates when they come to town, and they might get pissed off. And then you have to deal with Jay who's like, a notoriously tough interview, am I wrong about this? Or does this speak to a different treatment of Iowa than say other early states while I mean, I think you know, there there there has been a little bit of grumbling that she's not, you know, starting in somebody's living room? But you have to remember that that she did come and do that seven stop tour last fall where she did a lot of that, you know, the kind of small brick tavern conversations with voters. So I don't know I guess a little bit of a rich. Strategy. But if you're looking to get your message out in in a big way right off the bat, and especially when you have much lower name ID than let's say Bernie Sanders or even Elizabeth Warren. I think that they felt like this was enough of a balance where she could come in talk to voters, but also kind of address the rest of the country at the same time. So when you talk to the campaign, what are they view as her keys to winning, and what kind of things, do you sense it? They're worried about at this stage. Well, I think I, you know, as we talked about the fourth certainly her record on criminal Justice. They just know that that is going to be something that that comes up over and over again, and it's hard to get ahead of that. Sometimes, you know, I think they were caught off guard by the op-ed in the New York Times. It was very critical saying that she had not been progressive enough as a prosecutor and pushing reforms as attorney general in California, for example, to reform the street three-strikes law, even though she had advocated for that in the past. But at the same time, I think that you know, they see these early months as just really important in terms of her connecting with people on the ground having those one on one conversations and then in terms of their path to victory, you know, they they actually laid out better than a lot of campaigns that I've heard. Where they hope that she has a strong finishing Iowa and New Hampshire, you know, enough of a strong finish to have some momentum going into South Carolina, then really tried to galvanize that black vote, and consolidate it, which will be a challenge, of course, if she's got Cory Booker and Joe Biden in the race, but then use their South Carolina as that launch pad into all of those states in the southeast that are, you know, many of them have huge proportions of the electorate is dominated by the black vote. And so they see a chance for her to do really well and series of those early state primaries. And then of course, you have California moving up its primary to to Super Tuesday. So actually ballots will be going out in California on the same day that Iowa voters go to caucus so she's gonna make a huge play there, which is not going to be an easy win, by the way. And also in. In Nevada where she hopes that her advocacy on immigration reform and for the dreamers will really help her Nacho win. They're out west as well. Miss. Just the hilarious hedging of early state success. My favorite ever was Joe Lieberman and see thousand four claiming that he was in a three way split decision for third place in New Hampshire. Shockingly that didn't really fly with the national press corps. But yeah, do well in Iowa. But like no one ever says what that means. I was literally not allowed to say we need to win Iowa. Because God help us. And you know, so many people are saying somebody of the sources that I'm talking to you here on the ground in Iowa saying, we have no no idea. How many tickets are coming out of Iowa this time because if you've got like fifteen people in the field, you know, it's it's a little hard to to measure success in that. So this could be a fight that really drags out for a while. And I think that's to the benefit of the country rather than having it decided right up front. I also think that the the number of people in this primary means that anyone who thinks that they can predict what will happen is bonkers. Last question for you. Howard Schultz charges me a lot for coffees commodity experience. What the hell is he up to? At starbucks. Right. Yes. Yes. I by the Adele thing that's been on sale for like six years. I haven't talking though 'cause he are close to him for quite some time. Now as they have been very seriously investigating this idea of an independent run for him. He just feels as though you know, that the Democratic Party obviously has gone too far to the left and these ideas like Medicare for all are too expensive. But I mean, I think the blowback that he's seeing over the last two days has just been pretty brutal. And while it's true that he know by the numbers. There are a ton of independence out there in the country, as we all know, they generally tend to really be Democrats or Republicans or lean one way or the other. So I mean, I'm not surprised that he jumped in. But I think that he's going to be under so much pressure, including from another billionaire. Michael Bloomberg who put out a statement today saying that he didn't think an independent run was a good idea. So many people that just have chills thinking back to you know, Ralph Nader and the other spoilers of the past. I mean, these dates are decided by such a small margin of voters, and you can see him having potentially a really strong constituency, and I don't see how you know, how Democrats. Could do well in that scenario? I mean, it it basically is makes it will make Donald Trump's play for his base. Look like, the most brilliant thing that we've ever seen if we end up in this three way race. Exactly, right. I mean, Howard Wilson who is a longtime strategist for Hillary Clinton. And then more recently from Bloomberg tweeted that he's seen enough data over many years to know that anyone running for president as an independent will split the anti incumbent anti-trump vote. Therefore, this could be the thing that delivers the presidency back to Donald Trump at a time when his disapproval rating is fifty eight percent of the time. When I think it was ABC Washington Post poll said fifty seven percent of voters said they would not vote for him. Like, this guy is gonna fuck up. The closest thing you have to get his guy at office. Interesting to see if he is, you know, listening to all of these voices. Like if you really is in still indecision mode. Because you'd have to think that there's a chance here that that Howard Schultz becomes, you know, the villain for everyone in the Democratic Party going forward if he if he goes ahead with this. We Democrats love to blame external forces for failure to win election. So yeah, people will like boycott Starbucks locations. I guarantee you the the we will take this so far over the top that he will not even be able to understand what happened to him it. It's going to be wild. That's a great story. That's a good Democrats are going to lose their fucking month. I mean, you're already seeing it on Twitter. I hate the stupid. I'm here for the ratio called culture on Twitter aware, someone posts something, and it's a question of how many replies versus re tweets you get. But in this instance, like this there is no national movement for Mr Schultz to run. I think that we're just going to have to see how this goes for him. You know, obviously, the biggest issue is going to be ballot access. He says he's got that all locked down. You know, what a Byzantine system it is getting on the ballot and all fifty states and counties. So we'll see whether he can withstand the backlash and whether he really thinks it's it's worth it to put his his reputation on the line. Or if he thinks that there's enough independence out there who are ready for something totally different than these two parties that have so much dysfunction. Yeah. Too much listening to David Gergen not enough listening to like voters in states. I think might be the problem here. But you are exactly right. It is not an easy task to get on. All of us ballots may think you so much for doing the show. Thanks for all your traveled actually cover these events. It is invaluable for us to hear from journalists. Like you who are doing the work. So I really really appreciate it. With you. And I hope we'll we'll do it a lot two years. Yes. You soon.

And it's very nice who asked us recently. We as round when someone asked us is Spencer imaginary that comes up a lot. And you know, what my answer is at this point. He is. Might as well be who Spencer Spencer is. Hey, here's a question. If I didn't tech Spencer would we ever be friends again? You know, what I mean something I'm working through? If you download the cash today, you put in the code pod say yes or Spencer than what five dollars goes to you five dollars goes to world central kitchen, which is Jose Andres organization. That's feeding people all over the world and Jose has been doing an incredible work. Feeding federal workers who aren't getting paychecks right now. And he started in DC. I saw announcement yesterday that he's sort of going around the country trying to help feed people who work for the government, Saint he's a kind kind man, and you can help that effort, and you can also get five bucks on your own pocket. If you download the catch up today and put in the code pods aver Spencer, do it. On the line is made arrested. She's a national political reporter for CNN and a bit of a jetsetter at the moment yesterday. She was in Oakland for Senator comma Harris's presidential announcement today. She's in Des Moines, Iowa preparing for CNN's townhall tonight with Jake tapper and Senator Harris before that she was in South Carolina with Senator Harris covering her there. Maeve? Thank you so much for doing the show. I hope you are getting airline points. I am trying to basically put coffee through and IV drip, at this point of communists, had a very very busy month, as you know, it feels like she launched a campaign, you know, basically over a three week period years ago. Yeah. So let's talk about the Oakland rally. I her campaign estimates that there were twenty thousand people at the announcement speech yesterday. And from what I saw there were nearly as many flags displayed behind her at the venue. It was a great looking shot seemed like a energize crowd. Like, what did you make of the substance of the speech and the size of the turn out? And what they think that means for her candidacy. Well, I was surprised, you know, I traveled with her in Iowa last fall, you know, then obviously went to all of her book for events. But I mean, the crowds were really really impressive yesterday in Oakland. It was interesting because you know, obviously, they filled in that whole space in front of city hall. That because the security they had barricaded off the streets. And you could just see thousands of people going at all the way back in the streets. Just trying to catch a glimpse of her speech. And of course, we're talking about Oakland, San Francisco, you know, the home of the white liberal progressive. But it was it was a really also racially diverse crowd tons of young people, and that has been such a strong theme throughout all of her appearances over the last year how she is drawing these younger voters voters of color, many of the same voters that Hillary Clinton really struggled with. And so that is clearly, you know, helping her launch and building a lot of momentum for her, but the crowds. Yeah. I mean, you never can quite trust crowd counts. But but it was big talk to Sean Spicer about that. Yeah. There was also a ton of policy and speech. She talked about Medicare for all replacing the Trump tax cut with a middle class tax. Cut up the five hundred dollars a month. Universal pre-k debt free college. This is definitely another very strong progressive platform. But did anything you heard or did not hear surprise you on the policy front? Well, you know, she hasn't talking a lot about each of those those policies, particularly her her tax credit for middle class Americans over I, you know, the last few months, but it's been really interesting the way in which she has taken on Donald Trump. And I thought yesterday even though she didn't mention his name. She did that a little bit more aggressively talking about certainly his immigration policies. But also talking about how you know, you've got foreign powers that are basically like a malware in the White House. And so that was a pretty direct hit on Trump, and his, you know, alleged relationship with the Russians she clearly is is hitting all of those high point. That she knows that she needs to hit with progressive voters as she competes with the likes of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, but definitely trying to make stronger push here initially to connect with voters, you know, about their economic struggles. And what they're worried about those kitchen table issues. And then, of course, always hitting a lot of the high points on criminal Justice reform, which is the most controversial part of her record. So let's dig into that. I mean, she was a prosecutor. There was a lot of bio as part of the speech, you talked about being the child of immigrants growing up in Oakland her work as a prosecutor, you know, the campaign slogan is Kamla Harris for the people. And I think that sounds like language you could probably hear from almost any candidate. Right. But what I think makes it unique to her as it apparently something she would say when she walked into the courtroom. Do you think it was that I it was actually a blocks from where she made her announcement where she said those. Words for the first time and the Alameda County courthouse, comma, Harris for the people, which is what every prosecutor says, you know, when they walk into the courtroom. Like telling that story in making a I think sort of standard issue campaign slogan. Feel like it's real and meaningful based on your bio, I think is the challenge of any election. I mean, do you think that she may progress toward that goal yesterday? I think so I mean, I think that this is just going to be a continual at issue that pops up for her because if you look at the length of her record, you know, both as a line level prosecutor prosecuting crimes from sexual assaults. You know, all the way to homicide, then as DA of San Francisco, and his attorney general there are so many cases that she oversaw and has responsibility for over those years. I think it's a record that's hard even for own people to get their arms around, but she has tried to cast it over and over again as the difficult decision that she made to become a prosecutor to try to change the system from the inside. Knowing that that was going to be something that surprised even people in her family. She did get heckled by one protester during her speech yesterday about one specific case where an undocumented immigrant, you know, allegedly killed someone, and she was something that she didn't quite address in the moments, but something where you could see any number of these cases coming up over and over again, she tries to explain her record. And the fact that she, you know, sometimes wasn't making these decisions directly with prosecutors below her. And she would sometimes learn about these controversial cases in the press. I know I notice when Senator Warren made her announcement, President Trump immediately took to Twitter to attack her and the most racist way he can find yesterday he attacked Howard Schultz, the Starbucks guy, and we can talk about that in a bit later. I didn't see any tweets responding to Senator Harris d did you notice that as well? It it's has he been reticent to attack her or what do you think you'll back through I his Twitter feed? Just see if he's really ever really attacked her. And I think that she is kind of a conundrum for hand, maybe in the same way that you know, Nancy Pelosi is in the city hasn't been able to come up with a nickname for her. But I mean, this is someone who is is trying to convince democratic voters that you know, after going through the series of I in her career going up against the big banks as attorney general that she's someone that is not going to be bullied by President Trump. And she's going to have to prove that over and over again, but he has yet to engage her and you have to wonder whether that's just because he doesn't think he has quite the right strategy to do that yet. Women's in the bay area or his kryptonite. That's what we're learning. Story that is certainly the Harris for president campaign story. So Senator Harris will you talked about this before she went to South Carolina before her announcement on Sunday you were there as well. Can you talk about that event? And what made it unique? Well, so this was so interesting because huge part of of Senator Harris background is obviously the fact that she went to Howard University. It was a place. She said where you could come. And you were and be exactly who you wanted to be that you you wouldn't be put in anyone's box and a big part of that for her was pledging the alpha Kappa alpha sorority incorporated, their official name this powerful sorority of of black women who are in many leadership positions all over the country and this event in South Carolina on Friday night, was maybe my favorite thing that I have been to in many years. It was this incredibly elegant gala called the pink is. Gala where all of these sorority sisters came you know, in their finest gowns to hear her speak to listen to her. She said that she was there, you know, just as Rory sister. She didn't actually mention her presidential bid in her speech. But this is a kind of hidden network that she has of black women who obviously could be the key to the democratic nomination as they have been so many times over and over again and in a state like how like a South Carolina to have you know, that splashy roll out in front of these women who are so excited about her bid. I think was a really strong way to launch in the state that she really hopes will be her springboard to all of those states throughout the southeast as well as Nevada and California. Describing in terms of the South Carolina event the crowd in Oakland sounds like the recipe for winning the democratic nomination. And to the point where you're seeing the LA times people, you know, well, marked Bareback and others wondering aloud if she's the front runner like, I know those terms are utterly meaningless this far out. But is that something that worries them or that they embrace? How are they dealing with the success so far? Well, I think that they have been really happy with the rollout. So far in the sense that she really was able to try to define herself at the beginning as she wants to define herself. And obviously that is so important. I mean, look at the way that Elizabeth Warren got totally tripped up with by engaging Donald Trump on, you know, her ancestry and at the same time. I think they're very cognizant of the fact that there will be many front runners in this race as we have seen so many times, you know, if we're thinking back to to to. Thousand seven at this time. I don't even know who would have been the front runner at that point.

"Do. I mean, hopefully, it will turn out to be nothing if he wants to run as a democrat, welcome. Yes. So far have that but running as a third party? There are just reams and reams and brings a data that show he is more likely to peel off anti-incumbent voters disaffected Republican voters in these are middle ground that we need to be Trump and to do that at a time when Trump's disapproval is at a historic high, and we have the best possible chance of sending his aspect to New York is unconscionable. It is immoral. It is grateful arrogant stupid thing to do because you were able to peddle expensive lots as for decades and think that you are somehow the businessman savior that. We've all heard about for decades, and we got with Donald Trump and that hasn't turned out to. Yeah. I mean, like, it's it's very hard to predict what's going to happen with a specific set of candidates in a race. But we do have some evidence Howard Wolfson who's advising Michael Bloomberg another billionaire who. Thought about running for president in the past tweeted last night. You know, I have seen enough data over many years to know that anyone running for poets as an independent will split the anti incumbent anti-trump vote. Bloomberg himself said something similar this morning. I mean, here's we have to understand go back to two thousand sixteen in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida the states that all basically decided the election. If both Gary Johnson, and Jill Stein, won a larger share of the vote and the percentage that Hillary loss by Trump. Trump won Michigan by point three percent, Pennsylvania by point seven Wisconsin by point seven Florida by one point two. So it's like you mean, we can talk about how horror Schultz has no real constituency in this country for, you know, fiscal conservatism and social liberalism, right? Which would surprise a lot of listeners, perhaps because you know, the constituency for that is on Wall Street, you know, lady and Silicon Valley maybe in parts of Los Angeles class conference. But even if he doesn't even if. If you only pulls two percent three percent four percent, and it could be devastating to the democratic nominee in a close race. Right. There is there is no coalition for him to win. But there is a coalition from destroy the country the. Yeah. And just you know, but let's not even go to like, I think the political argument is good. But so is the policy argument, you sheltie your lifelong democrat. And I watch your sixty minutes interview, and your you asked about tax policy, you say the democratic position immigration climate. You say the same thing healthcare, you say that you think there should be universal healthcare. But you think the democratic proposals for things like Medicare for all too expensive? That's the that's the primary debate. We're about to have a nationwide state-by-state context in which that contest in which that is going to be the subject of the debate. You say that the fiscal that boat. Neither party neither parties take fiscal responsibility. Seriously that the twenty one trillion dollar national debt is one of the biggest challenges is the biggest challenges face. Okay. First of all I point out that it's under democratic presidents in which we've actually achieved his goal responsibility. That there is a fiscally responsible party in this country. And it's the one you belong to. But also if you believe that that's important. If you believe at Democrats are wrong on that get in the fight get in the fight. You are what you we've said this for a long time. If you believe that your voice is missing and democratic politics, you can be a democratic candidate and have your chance to make your case. But somehow you believe that a you're the you're the right person to become president. But be your argument is not persuasive enough to compel the millions of people who ultimately choose a non Trump candidate that your argument is correct. And so I'm just sort of at a loss. And honestly, it's the same kind of egotism and island convicts attitude that led Trump to become Trump, and you have the money to do it. And you can hire the consultants to do it. But you're not actually doing the hard work of putting your skin and time in the game. And the only reason you are in a position to do that is because you have billions of dollars in shame on you. I mean, Mike Bloomberg actually ran a city is right. So he has some experience that would lead me to believe that he might be good at becoming president. I'm not endorsing him. I don't want it to run. But again, like just the CEO becoming president is an experiment that hasn't worked Howard Schultz might be a wonderful, man. And by all accounts, he's kind and nice and has done good things. But, you know, his his main position is is that we need to get rid of our debt by slashing entitlement programs to balance the budget. That's not just the right of Democrats. That's to the right of Donald Trump. The he the there's no there's no audience for that policy position. And I also would I would argue that it ignorant as a lot of what we learned in the last couple of decades about how we should be prioritizing things in this country because the the austerity versus spending debate has kind of played out in the favor of spending more stimulus and investing in our country and not slashing taxes for corporations and the wealthiest people, which by the way, there was a story in in Reuters today that said that there was barely any capital expenditure for businesses as a result of the tax cut almost none. Yeah. I mean, there's just there's no substantive reason what Howard Schultz couldn't run as a democrat. Which non fair because you know, for all the shit that some people give Bernie Sanders about being an independent and yet running in the democratic primary at least Bernie Sanders is running in the democratic primary and not as an independent, which would fuck everything up and pulling us all left, Mike, Bloomberg same thing. Mike, Bloomberg looked at what would what it would be like to run as an independent realized he could hurt the democratic candidates cause and thus help elect Trump. And so my Bloomberg's at all, right? Are you mean the running as a democrat or not at all these two people Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg on very different ends of the spectrum are both thinking. Yeah, we could both run in the democratic primary, and we'll just see if anyone likes her ideas Howard Schultz thinks that he doesn't have to do that that he gets to just run on his own as an independent and do it that way, even if it means hurting the democratic candidate helping to reelect Trump, and that's that's just a fucking awful thing to do and one last thing I'd say, I don't know if Steve Schmidt is currently still advising shelter. What he's what he's advising them. So I don't want to jump to conclusions yet. But Steve Schmidt who has been all over MSNBC. For the last couple of years talking about how important it is to defeat Donald Trump. He knows better for sure even if Howard Schultz doesn't and so whether he's advising him now whether vitamin the past Steve talk to him tell him this is about idea come on in come on. Yeah. And we're we're giving you the benefit out place. All right because it would be such a shame to find out that you are joining of the resistance was an entirely was just a giant ruse for you to go on television and preen and see moral only to join the one campaign that could help return the presidency to Donald Trump so much for giving the benefit of. I hope that's not the case. I hope that's not the case. I hope I'm wrong. I don't even know if I'm right or wrong. But anyway, yeah, that's okay. When we come back. We'll hear Tommy's interview with CNN's Maeve reston about comma harasses lunch. Pods

"I don't think that's right. But I guess that could be it. I buy that. I buy that for some of the other dumb dumbs. But Roger stone has a Nixon tattoo on his bat. Right. You know, he is familiar with what happens when you lie during the course of an investigation like this. Yeah. I mean just to break it down. Right. There's two reasons somebody would try to lie in this way. One would be to protect themself or project. Themselves and their loved ones the other be to protect Donald Trump. And I think it's still an open question for some of these indictments as to whether or not these were people purely lying to protect themselves and their involvement in crimes or were they lying to protect Donald Trump, either his reputation or the fact that he was involved himself. Yeah. I mean, just some of the text messages to. This is this is what stone texted credit co to lie quote stone, wallet plead the fifth anything to save the plan. In other exchanges. According to the indictment. Stone told person to that person to should do a Frank Penn tangibly before HP for the house intelligence committee in order to avoid contradicting stones testimony a reference to a character in the godfather part to who would plan to testify testify against the Corleones family. But was pressured to deny any recollection of key events anything to save the plan is sort of latching light there. What an idiot. What's the plan? I don't know. But man, did these people love using their fingers to type incriminating things on permanent records over and over again. So I think the other big question here more has already charged the Russian hackers and Russian intelligence with a conspiracy to defraud the United States. The question now is what are the possible reasons that Muller hasn't charged stone Manafort, you know, Flynn any of these folks any of the Trump folks as part of that conspiracy is he waiting. Or is this all we're going to get it's that's a really auditing, but there's sort of evidence on both sides. We don't know one of the things I think that should make us all a bit a cautious is the fact that the last thing that Rudy Giuliani, and sort of adult appearances, he kind of comes back to something which is like what's the crime conspiracy to hack, and it's and it's a very specific Turner phrase because the Russians they were hacking Republicans, they were hacking, Democrats, they were having people are a long time. A lot of the things they released a had for some time. And so, you know, if the Russians already had it, it's not like Roger stone conspire to hack anybody conspire to steal anything. He was just aware of something participating in the release of information, and that is an important distinction. Then again, as we also know Donald Trump went on television and said, can you please do me a favor and get her emails, and they tried getting those emails that very night. So there's sort of an even but yet, and that's not necessarily a crime. No, no that's on. But it is if somebody participated now if someone's aware of it and participating in the ongoing stealing in hacking. Of Democrats, the New York Times lay this out really, well, there's a there was a piece over the weekend. Like, what's a crime? What's not a crime? Maybe it's said, you know, if if Trump campaign officials coordinated with the signs on the timing and content of the document releases in an effort to maximize the damage the Clinton campaign that might qualify. But so far Muller has offered no evidence of that. So it's like Trump was if Trump in the campaign were aware that the documents were going to be done, even if they asked like when is it going to happen? We're just sort of interested, but that's not necessarily a crime. But if they actually said like, oh, if you do it here this might help. And and there is some evidence that it was getting close to it when they were like when stone is basically saying like, oh, the campaign start talking about how sick Hillary Clinton and hitting our because that's going to be a subject of the of the dump Jerome Corsi who is a birther scumbag right wing journalists, I guess in the loosest sense. The word emailed stone saying he knew of Assange plans, and that he had two more document dumps basically, and he said would not hurt to start suggesting the Hillary's. Older memories bad downs had a stroke, which is this sort of weird focus on medical issues, which they kind of did later do especially after she fainted at the nine eleven event, but you know, that sort of language that interaction does speak to coordination. Yeah. And so, you know, why hasn't Muller charged it yet Mimi Rocca, who's a former SDN y she said, there's three possible reasons. One Muller wants to charge. Everyone wants and he's not ready yet to charging stone with that would trigger discovery on the evidence around the conspiracy. And maybe he doesn't want that evidence public yet. And he doesn't want the other side to see that yet because they could be indicted themselves, and also, you know, pointed out that to search warrants were executed when they indicted stone both of his house and his apartment in Manhattan in so Muller wants to get more evidence. I right or the other one is and some people are raising this that Muller just to prove a conspiracy you need to prove a conspiracy beyond a reasonable doubt. And muller's. Cautious. And he wants to prove the crimes that he can prove which are all these cover up crimes, and he doesn't yet have the evidence. And may not have the evidence to prove a conspiracy against the United States beyond a reasonable doubt for these trumpet. Right. And I think that we should just look at what that is. Right. Let let's take let's call that the worst case scenario what we were describing then is a a embarrassing morally reprehensible vaguely, but unprovable illegal effort to subvert American democracy, so embarrassing and wrong, wrong and humiliating a group of people then spent the next year of their lives, lying and obstructing Justice and committing crimes to cover it up. Still not great exactly very still not great. Yeah. It should be enough. Yes. I mean should be enough. We don't know much. But one person who knows a hell of a lot more than we do as John Brennan director. And who now now tweets like, he is crossing the Delaware, Matterson, whatever. So he he he said on one of the shows that I expect there'd be a significant number of indictments in a significant number of names will be familiar to you all he thinks that the shoes are yet to drop are going to be the ones that are going to be the most profound that will hit people the top the organization. So I don't know what John knows John doesn't know anything in terms of classified information since he left the United States government. But and Trump took his clearance away to be a dick. That's right. That's right. Quite a statement from Brennan though, I saw that. It was just like a headline in the hill. And I'm like, okay. Where's where's that would be familiar to most Americans? We are. We are accustomed to statements like this from people like games Clapper on people like John Brennan because they have felt the need to talk this way since Donald Trump became president. But these are people who who take so seriously not getting ahead of the facts who takes so seriously being circumspect circumspect and not doing anything to go beyond what they could reasonably can go that is like what that is what they try to do. Yeah. But even. About two love. It's point just before we move on like, even if Brennan is wrong. Like, I do worry that. If Muller ends is whole investigation with a whole bunch of crimes about covering up lies and obstruction of that kind of stuff that the but nothing else on conspiracy. That's connected to actual Trump. Campaign officials administration officials than the press is going to be all like, you know, don't Trump's going to declare victory. No collusion. The right wing's going to say that the conservative me is gonna do that in the mainstream press is going to be like, yeah, I know, it was all just a bunch of process credits. Like, we have laid out here that the that the Trump campaign knew there was a conspiracy on behalf of the Russian government to interfere with our election to elect them president and not only agreed to like wanted that to happen and sought it out. But then like agreed to participate. Let it have. These are the same Republicans who impeached Bill Clinton for the same set of process crimes and the underlying cover up the thing. Bill Clinton was trying to cover up was not an international conspiracy to fundamentally corrupt. American democracy. It was a gross abuse of power and fucking blow job. Like, the we've been through this before several times these are important and crimes that we need to take. Seriously, everyone believes that I just Paul Manafort forwarded internal polling data to a Russian Intel guy. I like Donald Trump was begging WikiLeaks. I think the evidentiary case is going to be there for something more nefarious than what we currently know certainly the political cases there for a human being meeting our country who is shockingly unfit on uncountable number of levels. So lead the country next to Vladimir Putin in front of the world and took his side over the American intelligence community on whether or not he interfered in our election. That's all that's base. Forget about anything else. That's all you need to know. Look Muller is he's got a big chunk of marble, and like Michaelangelo he doesn't carve it from the out in cars a perfect hand. And then he carves. Perfect foot. Then he carves. A perfect arm. Yep. And then what we see this whole statue and beautiful model. Gorgeous. But

"Wildcat. Going to get ready for vinyls. I don't know that they do that. They're just kidding, Arizona. I honestly only know wildcat from the movie speed. I was searching for a school. It has nothing personally. Love speed comes to mind. Shut up anything. Anyway. Hey there wildcat to depart spoiler for the film speed. I I agree with you. I was a camera on the bus, the the draconian Bill to prevent government shutdowns can't deliver by default. Republicans something that they want less spending. It has to actually be indexed to either inflation or population growth or something you make them about. It goes up by twenty percent every year. Yeah. Like that. All right. Let's talk about who framed Roger stone on Friday federal agents, arrested stone at his Florida home for seven criminal counts including obstruction making false statements witness tampering. Most of the chargers had to do with stone lying or covering up or threatening others to lie and cover up his contact with WikiLeaks about the emails and documents that Russian government stole from Hillary Clinton, and the Democrats guys what's new in this indictment that we didn't know before. So we'll get we'll get that. I wanted to talk about to sort of bigger picture things that I I feel like are getting loss little bit one. Roger stone is not some fringe weirdo used Donald Trump's closest eight he's probably his long. You certainly is longest serving. So I think that people dismiss him as sort of a clown or a buffoon is on the fringe politics. Like, he's the guy who was the architect of of Trumpism. And I think once again, the stone saga raises for me. The question of why lie about these things if there was no there's not necessarily a crime in contacting WikiLeaks. If you think it's a newsgathering organization. So why say that some guy named Randy credit? Go was your connection to WikiLeaks instead of Jerome Corsi? Why create a crime and lie the congress when there wasn't one that we know of and the only answer I can come up with is that there's something they're trying to hide in the same way. General Flynn was trying to hide something about his totally actually kind of boring contacts with the Russian government AT McFarland like all of them are lying. About this issue over and over and over again. I mean, there's a clue in the indictment. Right. And this to me is the most interesting piece of it where it says someone inside the Trump campaign was was was directed to reach out to Roger stone to find out more about what wicketless two senior Trump campaign official was directed to context. Own about information, WikiLeaks might have had on Hillary Clinton the date on that is of course in July of twenty sixteen. So who the senior Trump campaign official is we do not know some speculation that it could be Rick gates because he's a cooperating witness at this point. So then you your question would be who would direct who had the power to direct. Rick gates, who was like deputy campaign manager, well, possibly Paul Manafort who was campaign manager at the time, though since they've already charged Manafort, why wouldn't you name him or call him individual one or something like that? And if it's not Manafort, then it's Donald Trump. Donald Trump JR. Ivanka Giovannia someone like that. This is a good example of not just the passive voice, but the passive aggressive list. That's right. Yeah. Very I think this this indictment tells us for sure that the campaign wanted to know how WikiLeaks releases could damage Hillary Clinton for sure. And of course, we already know that they wanted dirt from the Russian government on the Clinton campaign because they all took that in meeting early June. This is now the campaign asking stone. Okay. We know that WikiLeaks is gonna put out dirt at the Russian government stole. They knew that at the time because it was publicized at that time. Right that Russia hack the DNC. So they knew that foreign government was trying to launder stolen material to hurt their opponent through WikiLeaks. And they were asking Roger stone. Go find out where it is. When it's coming all that kind of stuff in Roger was flailing to make it happen. I mean, he emailed Jerome Corsi and told him to get to Assan. She emailed a guy named a Ted Malik who tried to get him to go, see Assange. I mean, they were this wasn't something. He undertook lightly. Didn't just fire off an Email to like info at WikiLeaks dot org. Like he made a real good faith ever. And later he told Sam number his former aide. And a guy he sort of raised politically what's the word. I'm looking for mentor. He meant toward that he had dinner with Julian Assange, and he later said that was a joke because that's a thing. We always joke is makeup dinners when I Email you guys I pretended. I didn't with somebody. So there's like a weird concerted effort to get to these people. Yeah. And so I think you know stones over the weekend. That quote this indictment is thin as piss on Iraq. And that his text messages have been mischaracterized. Was really great. That was really great because they are so hard to mischaracterize. They are so explicit and direct. I mean, the dog, you know, Chris Christie himself said it to George Stephanopoulos this weekend. You know, they've got all these emails and text messages that he create created the Tele pretty clear story. And I think it's gonna be very difficult for jury to listen to that and conclude that it wasn't what he was trying to do. It's worth remembering that before Chris Christie was a famous political oath. He was a prosecutor. Yeah. And he thinks that the indictment actually is very very dimming. I wanted to go back to time. He's first question though. Which is why all the line, right? Because I only I think there's only two explanations. One they are trying to cover up something worse or two. They are just so stupid that they wanted to lie because exposing that there was some contact with Russians would be politically devastating to Trump. Right. And so they were so stupid. They've figured why not lie because the political fallout of this could be really bad for the president. We want to protect them even though it's not illegal. I mean, I'm just I'm just throwing that out. There is the other possibility. Like, I

"How widespread that is among the base. Yeah. I think it's I think it's. It's interesting. I think we'll see I think I think one question is over the next year is it possible for Donald Trump's numbers to get below the high thirties or low forties start dipping into that. You know, into the the swampy cold waters of George W Bush's lowest approval ratings like it's obviously where he belongs. But we'll get there. I think that depends on losing some of his own people. And I also think you know, this fight is important and will last, but in part that depends on what happens next, you know, one of the reasons Donald Trump ended up in this mess is he he tried to behave the same way he would have haved. If Democrats didn't control a branch of the government. He kind of did his blustery thing and try to get something through. Now, he had he couldn't do that. During the first two years of total Republican troll control. But he used the exact same tactic when harder at it. And it left him worse often. So I think the big question is will there be any kind of adjustment in how they tried. Negotiate with congress on this next funding Bill and the and the other funding bills to come because they think that will determine the lasting impact of this shutdown. And this kind of governing is w-. What happens now, he's already said. He's he's basically issued the exact same threat. We're heading into the exact same conversation. How is this gonna look different? Yeah. I mean, that's you know, Mulvaney is on TV saying he's going to do the wall with her with a congress for some reason there's reporting saying that Trump thinks he can still get while money from Democrats. What do we think is more likely another shutdown on February fifteenth, Trump declaring a national emergency and getting in trying to get his money that way or some kind of a deal? I think predicting what Trump will do is. I can't do it because he is irrational. But it is clear that he is reeling from the criticism. He is not used to being savaged on Fox News from right wing creeps, like, Ann, Coulter, etc. So there they have to continue to posture and say that he might shut it down again. Because that's the only leverage they think they have. I can't imagine any scenario where Mitch McConnell would let that happen his numbers. So I think that leaves you a national emergency now when you get to a national emergency. Marco Rubio says it's a bad precedent Senator ROY blunt from Missouri said he oppose it on Fox News Sunday, gigantic jackass, Lindsey Graham is now four it. But I soon he's for it as a way to just get past the government shutdown talk. So that seems like the path to me. But again, it's not a success. You just get bogged down a little Gatien. And remember, there's basically two big reasons for Trump's base and Republicans to be opposed to a national emergency declaration number one is what if a democrat does that in the future, you know, national emergency because of climate change green radio, I'm gonna spend all this money. But number two is it just might not work and actually get the wall built because immediately. There's going to be a lawsuit against it. Someone's going to file and it's going to be held up in court much like oh, Trump's promise to end the DACA program and deport all the dreamers, right? Which is had been held up in court and litigation. Ever since he made the announcement. And basically the same thing could probably in may probably happen. If he doesn't emergency around the wall in right? I mean, it's like we've said this before it's tailor made for Trump. Right. Where he gets to have a big announcement on February fifteenth national emergency the base cheers again. And then everyone forgets in three months from now that the wall has been built at all. Autocrat in the streets failed Republican in the in the sheets. That is what that is his go pale. Somebody's used to go back through all of our pods and find out all of your interactions. The streets things that you've. I think it's also like, you know, we're we're. Sometimes it's hard to for. It's easy to forget that America has actual problems outside of trying to get through these very small debates. I mean, we're you know is a deal possible. Yes. There have been several immigration deals on the table for two years. It's actually Donald Trump who has walked away from the ones that were palatable to Democrats. So I think another question would be also a right? If a deal is on the table, if we are gonna talk about border security funding, which Democrats are gonna be open to they always are what are we going to get ready and ask for we're we to actually try to use our our newfound leverage and power to try to get through something for the dreamers. Are what are we going to get an exchange for this border while funding because there's noth- rate is Trump told the Wall Street Journal. I I don't want to deal with dreamers. We should take care of that in separately. But like we won't accept less than five win seven billion in. He won't trade wall funding for a broader immigration reform fucker taught us, but but right, but then then it Kerns back to Democrats and say, all right Mitch McConnell cannot allow another shutdown. Like, what are we willing to fight for? What are we willing to push for? That's all. I mean. Yeah. So another question is it time to end the possibility of shutdowns for good. Some members of congress are angry enough about the damage of reason shutdowns at they're pushing measures to keep them from ever happening. Again, the list of sponsors for a Bill backed by Rob Portman Republican from Ohio is growing. Mark Warner from Virginia is offering a pros proposal called the Tommy talked about last week that stop shutdowns transferring day necessary pain and inflicting damage in the coming year act was to stop stupidity act. Nailed it, boom rested. Nancy Pelosi is also said in the past few days that she might push Bill on the house side soon. Or we think about this Nancy is access called. I'll kill your family. Between nineteen get the guns out the mantle. No, you know, no more debt ceiling. No, no, more fund our priorities. Are we'll shut down the government. It's completely unnecessary. If you if you don't believe your proposals are popular enough or reasonable enough to get through a normal course of debate over how to fund the government than using the government as leverage using the government itself as leverage does not make that more appealing. Yeah. This is not how the system was designed. We're not sitting around thinking. Let's hold each other hostage all the time. And and like the economic data you mentioned some of what we lost. We'll never get back. We will lose points in GDP. But it's also true for like the gathering of scientific data about climate change, for example, like you will you you never have a chance to get back data that you could only gather that day like there's real problems here. Yeah. We'll say like I I was looking into this. And there's one note of caution on this. So basically the way this Bill would work is, you know, if you couldn't reach an agreement it would automatically fund everything at the prior year's levels. And then to spur resolution funding would be reduced by one percent after one hundred and twenty days of no agreement is reached by one percent more every ninety days. That's bad. The. Yeah. The the chief economist on the budget committee who works for Bernie Sanders wrote a blog post this morning that said it's actually very bad for Democrats because as you continue to fund everything at last year's levels. It basically means cuts because you don't keep up with relation growth. And so for democratic priorities for food stamps for education funding for all this stuff. They just keep getting cut and cut and cut it back to that. We we played a game like this in the past where we set this deadline to negotiate in good faith under the Obama administration. And if we fail to hit that deadline to question would kick in and it'd be drastic cuts in both defense and to the domestic. Domestic discretionary spending outside of defense that was sort of the both sides had something to lose Democrats were Republicans don't wanna see defense Rammer guides. Don't wanna see domestic cuts, and guess what we blew through that fucking deadline like a like an arrow wildcat.

"Russia's still like, he's an idiot. He's an idiot. Jared. Jared vodkas politics are the type of politics that probably Howard Scheldt has in mind. He's running for like, you wonder what the basis for like moderate, social, liberalism when it's convenient and then fiscal them. That's like New York dilettantes Jared Trump. They don't have politics. They don't Jared Kushner and vodka Trump. Do not have a coherent political ideology. They are they are like the characters and the great Gatsby or bump, you know, bumbling through their existence making mistakes, not caring who they hurt now carrying about any of it. You only, you know, their their source of feedback is either soom cocktail parties, each other friends and advisors who will never tell them the truth. So you know, these are just two wealthy children who have never faced a challenge. John Kelly was right there they've been playing government all along and John mentioned before like the fact that he thinks that it successful criminal Justice reform, which is something. Democrats want means you can get them to agree to wall funding. I is crazy like he. Sincerely, thinks that there's this grand bargain on the table. Meanwhile, the White House is setting up meetings with Trump in Ginny Thomas, Clarence Thomas, his wife where they scream at him for a while for not being mean enough to imigrants or transgender people or hiring enough of their cronies. I liked that music. They're setting themselves up for disaster over it's also crazy like one of these pieces that was either the poster the time said, you know, in meetings. Jared was holding up Stephen Miller as oh he's much softer than his reputation. You know, he's he's a really thoughtful guy immigration, Stephen Miller, who you know, in cliffs SIMS new book, former White House aide. This out said at one point Miller said I don't care if another refugee ever steps in steps foot into the United States. Stephen Miller is actually kind of more decent person. Once he gets into Stephen Miller looks up from a deer's carcass his face covered in blood. What was I know? He mentioned. They're misunderstanding. Awful. They're misunderstanding of Nancy Pelosi is just so absolute fundamental that. I I don't know. I don't know how it's possible. Like, they thought that Pelosi was going to have a hard time on her left for not paying for a wall. That is that is bunkers. I mean, I I get him trying to mess around with Joe Manchin. But like again, he called Joe Manchin was like keep doing the speech tonight. It's gonna change everything in terms of the political dynamic, and then it was a gigantic flop. So I don't know, man. The emperor has no clothes. I get. I get why it's possible. It's because they are stuck in this. You know, Fox News right wing media bubble where like they think that, you know, Democrats are going to cave and the Democrats are going to want while funding. They're going to bring people to their side. Like, they just they don't hear any other opinions. You know? You know on those two other new like what do you do? What do you do when when at the center of everything that you've built your life around as an unsolvable problem? This immovable huge mistake at the center of all of it you, you know, play around the margins and try to pretend it's not happening you fill your days with meetings and conversations somewhat loosely tied to reality. While all the while the central problem doesn't go away. All these people are playing White House pretend to I mean, there's a reason every time they give a big speech, they gather around the Oval Office desk and take a photo Torres. There's a reason and the reason is deep down. They all know, they have no business being there that it's not actually real that. It will always have an asterisk. And so, but what do you do in that circumstance? They have to get out of bed. They have to check their emails have to respond to those emails and so on and on it goes until we can get them. The fuck out of there could be your last time of all the politically damaging things Trump has done to himself and the Republican party, which is already as we said made him a uniquely unpopular president where does the shutdown rate. How bad is this? I think we don't know. But I think it's very bad. I think it is very bad the longest partial shutdown in history. The pointlessness of it the cruelty of it, the damage of it people will remember it will his base clearly has left a Mark. We're you know, this is the beginning of the twenty twenty campaign. This is you know, we have we have democratic candidates giving big speeches, and this is the president's kickoff. The president's kickoff to twenty two hundred twenty twenty reelection was caving to Nancy Pelosi after shutting down the government for no reason for five weeks. Every political problem can be fixed, you know, especially if there's an accident event. But I mean, he's a sixty three percent disapproval rating with independent voters that is really bad and the solution that he's found to the problem with independent voters is creating a similar problem on the far far right with the Ann Coulter's in worse of the world who now are going to call him a wimp and a loser for not getting wall funding in until the day, he died, so he's he stuck in this political place where I guess he's. Gonna fight for wall funding forever, despite the clear political dynamic that it doesn't help him. Yeah. I think that's a great point. I want to talk about that. I mean, also the CBO the Congressional Budget Office nonpartisan they came out this morning at the shutdown cost the economy eleven billion dollars three billion dollars, which is a permanent loss. They projected growth will slow to two point three percent from three point one percent. And in twenty twenty they're projecting the growth will decline to one point seven percent. That's when the president is running for reelection. So, and I think like you said, it's this the shutdown it pissed off workers a pissed off liberals, it pissed off moderates, and and independence who think like government is always broken and doesn't work, and it's dysfunctional it pissed off his base for once because he didn't actually get the wall and culture tweeted on Friday, good news for George Herbert Walker Bush as of today, he is no longer the biggest wimp ever to serve as president at states on Bill Maher. She said, you know, I expected the president to keep his promise. I wonder how
