"You're listening to all things considered from NPR news. Amtrak wants Americans to fall back in love with train travel. The first step is adding a new line between New Orleans and Mobile, Alabama, which is expected to start next year. Stephen Base, a hub, the Gulf States newsroom has more on what the trains need before they can leave the station. There's a lot of excitement for the new Amtrak line from the four Mississippi Beach towns. The train will stop at one is based ST Louis. Wendy Hayden loves the romance of train travel. Oh, I'm thrilled. I can't wait. I'll be one of the first ones on it. Going to mobile. Even better is what Amtrak would mean for her city. She points to a strip mall just across from the train depot. It used to be known for seedy bars and empty storefronts. Now, new businesses are popping up in part because of the Amtrak plans are going to have another restaurant. I think next door I don't know what this is going to be on the end. But they have a Pilates place going in, and they have a place that's called bones. Your it's a dog store. A study by the University of Southern Mississippi says tourists riding the line could bring hundreds of millions of dollars to Mississippi's economy each year.

"A disabled white farmer sues the bidet Administration for racial discrimination. The CDC doubles down on summer camp mask for kids. The left wants to keep social media censorship of the right going Lord strengthens Vote integrity and Amtrak Joe lives about Amtrak shoulder to shoulder to come together Feel time. Need to protect America is the Buck Sexton show Buck Sexton joins us now CIA analyst former NYPD intelligence officer Now Buck Sexton, Wisconsin Dairy farmer who has two prosthetic legs is showing The Biden administration over what he claims is a racist covert relief plan that disqualifies him. Because he's white man's name is Adam Faust. He filed a federal suit in Green Bay, Wisconsin last week, and what's at the center of this is a Biden covert 19 stimulus package fund. That gives loan forgiveness but on Lee non white farmers are eligible. Okay, let's just let's look at this with very clear eyes. Let's stick to the facts because it could not be more obvious that this is racial discrimination. It is not possible to have equal protection under the law when your skin color is used against you when it comes to access for federal funds. When that is the on Lee disqualifying factor, we're going down to the foundations of Our legal system here. We're going down to the most basic constitutional Promises and protections. We have to see this such on the the woke left the Democrat party seeks to violate them seeks to fundamentally transform American society and that's what this Goes to Right. He this dairy farmer. Her of 140 whole Stein's on his family farm. In Children, Wisconsin. And there's a $4 billion program in the cove in 19 stimulus plan. That is supposed to give loan forgiveness to farmers. Now, don't this guy Foust. Has had more than his share of issues and challenges and he's disabled. So not only is he is he a guy who's white, therefore doesn't qualify, but he does actually get some legal benefit. Generally speaking, you know you'd be covered in the Americans with Disabilities Act. But she disability is not a discriminatory fact. There's not a discriminatory issue of the law because that's applicable across all racial and ethnic categories. Right. If you're in a wheelchair doesn't matter what gender or gender identity or race you are you get, you know a handicapped access. For example, where you have you have different Some different legal provisions that come in to effect. But that's not enough. The fact this guy has two prosthetic legs one because of an accident, one because he lost one leg in an accident, one leg to diabetes, So he walks on prosthetic legs. He's trying toe keep his farm going. He's been through a terrible time. With Cove it as so many other farmers have. And he wants government support. He wants help, and our government is saying sorry. Farmer, your white? Sure you don't have legs? Sure you're dealing with the disability and have had major challenges because of co vid and there's money set aside specifically to help farmers. Like you, except not like you because you're white. This is basic, straightforward Red letter right in your face racial discrimination. Now they can try what they always do This always the holistic and the balancing history. No. No, it's time we draw a line on this stuff. It's time we say enough is enough. Now there are woke judges. There are progressive activists sitting on the federal bench a lot of them, especially after the Obama administration, and they're gonna be more now because of Joe Biden and the puppeteers around him and tell him what to do. They're gonna be a lot of these judges, and they don't care what the law is. They think they're creating a utopian society. They think they're creating a better America. But remember that in order to get there, they're willing to break some of the most fundamental legal and moral Protections that we have in our society. This is just a clears. It could be the government can't say we're not giving you a job money even though you really needed the guy's disabled, and he's a farmer. We're not giving you AIDS money or on Lee, giving it to Asian, Hispanic or black farmers. That is the official position of the Biden administration. You could say Well, this is just One case, but it's not actually I mean, it's federal policies, so it really matters involves billions of dollars, so it's not a small issue for billion dollars might not seem like much when they're throwing around trillions. Like they're nothing. But in the in the normal world in the world were math matters. $4 billion is a lot of money. What you're seeing here. Is that the left is trying to get his trying to go as far As it possibly can. They're drunk with power. They want to see what they can get away with conservatism right now. Is in some level of disarray. We don't have the effective pushback that we should. And so what we're seeing. Is the weaponization of progressivism and political correctness. I mean, they are pushing this further than they ever have before. I mean, if you're a white chef now, who makes burritos and Portland, Oregon, you will get death threats and have to shut down your business if the woke finds out about you because of cultural appropriation that actually happened. You can look up kooks burritos in Portland. Actually. No, you can't. Gone forever. Thanks to awoke mob That's right. White guy cannot make a burrito not allowed according to left, so just understand that the bite administration policy about the white farmer being denied funds He's being this is being replicated all throughout our society now. They're all these different ways that that whiteness is being singled out and legally punished. And yes, you say, But why are all these white progressives pushing for this? Because they view this as creating a coalition of non white voters that will propel the progressive left into power, so they're willing to sacrifice principles they're willing to sacrifice constitutional protection. All in the pursuit of of total political power. So this is a bargain there that they're happy to make, and it doesn't affect them. So much of what happens with progressives is Yeah. You know, I don't care about higher taxes. You find out Well, that rich, you know that Pelosi that Schumer that rich individual He's gonna pay the higher taxes Got it Got tax attorneys, all kinds. People take care of that stuff. You know, the woke left believes That we are in a country where there's so much white supremacy that chefs Can't white Chef's Can't make Pantai or curry or bi bim bop without fear of being canceled. This is utter Madness, Okay? And you look at other things that have gotten the left upset recently. And You know, I think I mentioned this to you. Snow white, the snow white right now the name you might think the name would be the problem. What? Wife, snow, white white supremacy or something, right? Uh, no. The name isn't the issue. The problem with snow White is that the handsome prince kisses her out of her slumber, which is technically non consensual. So when they reopened in Anaheim, California, a Disney ride that had the snow white kiss moment shone on a screen. There were writers, I believe for the San Francisco Chronicle, who said that this was This was bad effectively. This is perpetuation of rape culture. You know, it's it's like the handsome Prince roof each snow white and then sexually assaulted her while she was passed out. I mean, that's the way the left sees things now. These people.

"Your podcasts. Most people don't know you walk into a store and you buy a gun. You have a background check. But you go to a gun show you can buy whatever you want and no background check. Not true. Does anybody carry more when things are not true? When Joe Biden says them or when a Democrat says them or Oh, I I know we can imply that don lemon standard, which is well, Trump lied so much that No lives matter anymore. No, I I don't. I don't agree with that. I don't agree with any of that. But That's the standard they're trying to apply now to cover up for Amtrak, Joe I'm just gonna You know, just going to say this stuff and Um, no joke friends, you know? He's kinda little breath a little. Over stop and start Listen to me because I'm so earnest. Such a such a straight shooter, Not like a gun shooter like a different kind of shooter. It's not true that you could go to a gun show and buy a gun without a background. Check a zoo matter of policy. That's not the case. If you are federally licensed firearms dealer at a gun show, you will run a background check. So when Joe Biden says that you could just go to a gun show in by one. That's not true. There are some wiggle room in the law for hobbyists and enthusiasts to aren't engaged in selling guns as Asses their business who are at a gun show. But the overwhelming majority turns out of people that go to gun shows and buy a gun will actually have to pass a background check. There's a whole other part of his argument to that, I think is worth noting, and that's a lot of really bad people can pass background checks. If somebody has a criminal background, they're going to know that and they're very likely to Ignore whatever the gun laws are, if they want to get a gun But a lot of other people, including people that have severe mental illness, we're going to go on some kind of Ah Shooting spree. They When you look at it, they would pass. They do pass background checks a lot of the time. So I understand that there are a lot of security measures. I'm not one of these people is gonna pretend that there's no need for things that are 100% effective, right? I mean, this is what the left does with vaccines now. Well, it's not 100%. You still have to mask up. What? That's crazy. Sorry, not 100%. All right. They're playing games here. Yes, Vaccines are incredibly effective at preventing the virus from being spread as well as individual from getting it. It's not perfect. I understand that you could make a case that background checks. Are are going to work sometimes, and they do work sometimes and stopping people from getting farms. But let's also not overstate the fact that a lot of Nash shooters passed background checks. So you know, you're you're throwing a bunch of things at this in the hopes that it's going to reduce violence in a meaningful way. And what you really get with the background check stuff, for the most part is gonna be the if it saves just one life mentality, which is not how we make policy. If it saves one. Life is the basis for a truly tyrannical government. Because think of all the ways anyone is going to argue with me on this one. The speed limit should be 10 Miles an hour, we would save tens of thousands of lives a year. True. 10 Mile an hour. What you have to go so fast. What your business wouldn't function anymore. Too bad. It'll save lives. We don't do that, Do we? Although I worry these days that the mentality in the era of covert has changed so much that people say Yeah, actually. We probably should have a 10 Mile an hour 10 mile per hour speed limit. You know, it's I think we actually should have that. So the gun show thing is not true. But more importantly, you get to the underlying philosophy of Joe Biden and he's underlying philosophy of the Constitution. Here's what he says play too. They're phony arguments suggesting that these air Second Amendment rights at stake for.

One Thing Millennials Aren't Killing? Public Transportation

"Millennials are often blamed for killing things. You know like gulf mayonnaise vacations marriage. It's almost become a cliche. Well there is one. Many millennials and their younger counterparts in gen z save public transportation urban living concern for the environment and a lack of romanticism. About cars are some other reasons why. Npr's mvp has more. There's one word that twenty four year old michelle. Santa maria keeps using when she talks about public transit. I feel like it's so cute. it's just cute. it's so cute. i think it's cute. I mean it's clear that for her. Public transportation is about a lot more than just getting from point a to point b. santa. Maria is one of the many millennials who aren't as car crazy as their parents generation. She belongs to a facebook group called. And brace yourself. It's a mouthful. New urbanism seems for transit oriented teens. The acronym is numb tots. Which is what they call themselves. There are more than two hundred thousand members. And they share funny posts but also debate transportation policies and fantasize about a world in which nobody needs a car but the pandemic has crushed that dream across the country drop in ridership have led to budget cuts and service rollbacks which means a lot of trains and buses are coming less frequently. If at all said the honest it's infuriating in a way. William clark is also a number top. He's twenty five years old and lives in philadelphia. He worries about transit workers as well as the commuters who ride buses and subways not because they love them but because they don't have a choice because when you reduce the amount of service you have to pack more people onto your vehicles at least a higher possibility of contract code. It's actually pretty scary. He works from home now. But he's trying to support the system in other ways. He's a member of a transit. Riders union in philadelphia where he advocates for the needs of writers in the city. Who might not be able to make public meetings across the country. Twenty five year old. Alex lee is advocating for transit. In san jose california he got himself elected to the state legislature and appointed to the transportation committee. If you start putting transit then you're really hurting the people that depend on it. Most people who don't have access to cars or people who rely on these little life against soon for work and lobbies are essential workers twenty-seven-year-old tens and trump used to be one of those essential workers. He was an icu nurse until he moved to vermont in burlington mason wide. And here's the other thing. It's the middle of january. We just had a snowfall and biplane is just as clear as any road. He left in part because he feared for his life biking on the streets and the commute on the subway could take as long as three hours. So what numb tots like him. Think about the new. Us president whose nickname after all is amtrak. Joe and who's appointed a millennial people judge as transportation secretary some are hopeful but ciampo is not impressed is actually millennial. He seems ancient. Let me look at this age. I'm fairly certain that he is to get on my phone and be like. Oh dang is he we google it and it turns out buddha. Judge is thirty nine so so i guess he counters but it doesn't think like a millennial no i don't i don't think so compel thinking like a millennial means not thinking like a politician like those politicians from previous generations who promised major upgrades to public transit systems and never delivered a peasley npr

"Evan throughout your career is a political journalist in america. Joe biden has always been a high profile politician and someone he showed and watched and interviewed on a number of occasions. Most recently this summer after he became the democratic nominee. Tell me about that meeting. I have to say this was one of the more unusual interviews i've ever had. I mean this was in the middle of the pandemic and joe biden was being kept largely away from the public for very practical reasons. I mean they were worried. That as a seventy seven year old man it could be a very dangerous thing for him to be out and he lives in the suburbs. Outside of wilmington delaware. He has a house on a sloping wooded. Lot that overlooks a small lake. And because of the virus they didn't want me to go anywhere near the main house and so the secret service brought me to a little carriage house a little cottage where his mother used to live roy. The and would've k. She'd being that chair downstairs. Close the fireplace watching television wearing a big white. N ninety five mask. She said joey. If you build me a house out moving here what mood was in. He was anxious to be honest. It was an unusual mood for somebody who is now in the nominee of their presidential contest. I thought you could defeat. Hate can't only hides crawls under the rocks and given oxygen by any person in the fiery. It comes roaring back a. He was constantly thinking about the sheer scale of the catastrophe that the united states was facing in the pandemic. That if he wins this presidential election that he would in fact be contending with an almost monumentally difficult set of problems. We're trump not running. I probably wouldn't be running. But it was so contrary to everything that i believe about government in a sort of the antithesis where i think we should be doing and he was also very focused on the fact that he was dealing with a competitor who had already said that he might not accept the results of the election. It's going to get really really ugly. He is going to continue to lie. In what i do worry about. I tell you. I've been for real as worried about them. Screwing out there electr outcome. And yeah. he's one helluva her to prison. Say i'm not sure except the outcome i've committed. I mean he probably could never have imagined that he would have been facing a candidate like donald trump and yeah. He almost certainly did imagine that he would be in this race. In fact he is on the brink of a dream that he's harvard for most of his political career. When did he. I talk about a desire to become president. Interestingly he's been talking about wanting to be president since he was barely out of his teens on one of his early dates with his late wife nearly a hunter he met her mother and her mother asked this young man taking her daughter out on day will what do you imagine for your future. And he said well. I i want to be president. And then he added of the united states and there was something ludicrous about that. This college junior. Who was almost prematurely old. He he in a little way. He carried himself a bit more like an adult than he was. He was any twenty nine years old when he made what was a pretty audacious. Run the senator. It was it was sort of outrageous thing to do in some ways. I mean the the senator he was running against was a an institution in delaware shows biden twenty nine year old challenger of senator caleb boggs ball the sixty three years old going for his third term in office for a quarter century. He was a veteran of world war. Two and he's been everything. Mr delaware and joe biden was nobody. Joseph biden twenty nine years old had two years as new castle county counseling and he has been a vigorous young challenger but he decided that he was the voice of another generation biden. Said it's time that we had somebody yell in washington about taxes and ecology and so forth. He believed in things like environmentalism at the time which were still very nascent movements and he ran ads. That said joe biden knows what's happening now and that was sort of subtle not so subtle. Dig at his opponent and it worked. It wasn't audacious bed. it paid off. That was a shock result. He won the race but before he actually took the job. His life changed dramatically in an instant. Tell me what happened. His wife nelia was taking their three kids to go by christmas tree and they were pulling out into a busy road and they collided with a truck and it was a catastrophe and his his wife nelia and his daughter naomi were killed instantly and his two sons who were at that point ages. Two and three hunter and bo. We're both hospitalized. And initially he he thought of suicide. He didn't think there was any way he could take his job in. The senate all somehow seemed kind of pointless Frankly wanted to kind of disappear from public life and his sister. Valerie told me that in the end he didn't have the luxury of disappearing. Because those two boys were depending on him and some older members of the senate said come and try it for six months and then you can decide what to do. He did that. Make this one. Promise that If in six months or so there's a conflict between my being a good father and being a good senator which i hope will not occur. I thought but i hope it. Won't i promise you that i will. will contact governor like trip as i had earlier and Tell him that We can always get another senator. But they can't get another father and because he was a single father he would come home every night on the train rather than stay in washington event that he wasn't really a part of the washington social scene and it gave him a slightly different perspective on things because he was taking amtrak every night and it became the beginning of this reputation and people would joke that he was amtrak. Joe this kind of slightly self conscious manner the people but actually it was a reflection of the of the brutal reality of his life. Which was that he was the only parent has his kids had laughed and he was trying to raise them on his own. This was a phenomenally quick rise to power for young man. What did he do with that power. What were the kind of positive achievements and the parts of his career. When joe biden was rising in the senate he he turned out to be extraordinarily politically adept. He was just very good at being a senator. He rose fast. Senator biden serves two of the most important and demanding committees the united states senate foreign relations and the judiciary committee as chairman of the judiciary committee he steers the course on the most difficult and controversial issues of our day for too long. Our society is look the other way at this nightmare. He was the author of the violence against women act shameful to that our legal system condone violence against women for hundreds of years. I have the right to legally prosecute the abusing person. I have the right to be. I have the right to be me. Senator has a former victim as a mother and as a woman. Thank you for your time. And your sincere interest and it's very easy to poke fun at the old amtrak joe caricature but the one who was actually always talking about matters of economic fairness and for a decade led by ronald reagan. Sell background dies has become the full throated cry of this society..

"amtrak joe" Discussed on Republic Keeper - with Brian O'Kelly

"Welcome Republic broadcasts get my name is Brian. Kelly. Thanks for joining and so the hundred thing just you know it is what it is and thanks again for listening. This is a listener supported broadcast sick a corporate media. You know I'll tell you what the listeners put us into forty eight of the fifty states and. Twenty some foreign countries all around the world, seventy different services, and actually contacted by a television network recently about doing something with them and I think I'm gonNA, decline because again, I liked the independence and I don't want anybody tell me. What I can or can't say it's kind of part of the appeal of doing the show this way. So anyway. The hundred Biden scandal here is to be clear. It's not about hunter. You know we we can try and act like it's about one hundred it's not. The Hunter. Biden scandal is about Joe Biden. It's about Joe Biden selling access to his office. It's about Joe Biden influencing US policy for cash. and. It's about Hunter Biden being a conduit for that. Hunter Biden is as much a victim in this as you and I as the tax payers. This poor kid. Raised by a dad who was who was Amtrak Joe Wright. Amtrak Joe was the claim to fame and. then. Again this is just hindsight stuff guys. When I was a young father. My kids will tell you. I worked too much and parented two little. When I was a young father. I was GONNA make it. I was GONNA. Make Money I was GONNA, make it for my family. I was GONNA. You know I was going to do it and I worked too hard and fathered two little. Joe By Amtrak Joe would get on the Amtrak and it was how would take two hours into work two hours back after the long days at the Senate was Joe home. And I'm not picking on him. I'm guilty. I'm guilty. So this poor kid hunter Biden grows up with an absentee workaholic dad you know and ends up with substance abuse issues and turns around and because he's got these issues. WHO. Thinks Hunter Biden thanks clearly. I'm guessing like most people, subsidies, issues, his thinking and judgment aren't so clear and so he ends up being abused by his own father. As the conduit for dirty deals all around the world. The Senate report found exactly that. Not The one they're working on the one they've completed. Here's what it says reports key findings included concerns raised by officials in Vice President Joe Biden's office about the perception of a conflict of interest with respect to one hundred binds role on charisma's board. And a senior State Department official warning Vice President by her staff the Hunter Biden's position on Arizona's board enabled Russian disinformation efforts and risked undermining US policy in Ukraine. The report also confirmed the former Secretary of State John Kerry had knowledge of one hundred binds role on charisma's board even though he falsely denied that knowledge during a town hall event in two, thousand, nine hundred, and so the Senate report found that the all the professionals inside of the departments were worried about this because they could see that it was dirty. And they were warning Joe Biden about it. They were warning the John Kerry over the State Department about it and nobody did anything. The corruption problem is Joe Biden's. Not Hunter Biden's hundred. Mine's just a conduit undermines the bag man hundred binds the guy that they say, Hey, dude you know what tell you what I know we know you've got a big problem. In that blow problem, that's a five grand a month problem on top your extravagant living expenses. So tell you how `bout you hook up this Chinese company you'll be the guy you hold jobs shares and we'll make sure we keep you in all the drugs you can snort. Or smoke. And all the hookers you can chase that was hunter Biden's deal. We'll keep who you are covered up. And we'll keep the cash flow in through you. You'll be the conduit for it. So the report that the Senate did wasn't limited hundred Biden's role on the board. That also detailed his receipt of a three and a half million dollars wire transfer. From Atlanta about. Arena. She's the wife of the former Moscow mayor. And he opened a bank account with gone went on to fund one, hundred, thousand dollar global spending spree. With James and Sarah Biden. As, well, as his associates, Eugene Mangone Link Dong and other Chinese nationals linked to the Chinese Communist government and the People's liberation. Those are the people that Hunter Biden was hanging out with and the conduit for money into the United States. Ready for this. See the problem is guys in. This is so important understand if you are a Chinese national. Associated with the Chinese military. If you're part of their, you know there's no difference between the. Government and the military and the business associates in there. Right. So if you run a big energy company in China, you're part of the military. Operation or you're not part of that company. Everybody's part of the intelligence part of the state operation. Okay. So if you're if you're part of those things that means you're sanctioned by the US government that means you can't do business in the US that means you can't. Transact stuff. Here's what you need. You need a straw purchase. You need a straw dog. You need a guy like hunter. Biden. Who can move money in and out of the country because he's citizen, right? So, let's just read here. Those associations this is the Senate report, Susan Brian Kelly making this up. This is the Senate report. Those associations resulted in millions of dollars in cash flow. Some of which hunter quote paid non women who were nationals of Russia or other Eastern European countries and appear to be linked to an eastern prostitution, Eastern European prostitution or even trafficking ring. United States Senate. Says that Hunter Biden's money was linked to a Russian human trafficking ring. One did that come up on the news? Watch the news right you watch CNN. When did that COME UP ON CNN? One? Was the CNN expose Magin if Don Jr... A three and a half million dollar payment from the Moscow mayor's wife related to a human trafficking ring. When would that not be twenty, four, seven wall to wall news on every channel and yet hunter Biden doesn't with full knowledge of the United States State Department and nobody says.

N. N. where a news organization you know what they might do and also they said they didn't get into you know hunter Biden says what were you greater she asked where you qualified to be on the board a brief smile and and he says well as qualified as anybody else on the board then did you go down the list of other people on the board like Cofer black from the CIA a big we got the CIA suddenly is on the board of Burris MA a Ukrainian energy company and and so is hunter Biden what a coincidence one of the I. and hunter Biden's body his old body and business partner he's on the board of bris much too and they're all getting paid days truckloads of money and for apparently not doing much now did she ever ask I I'm looking at Michael here did you ever ask him whether he's ever set foot in Ukraine that didn't come up to did she ask him if he speaks Ukrainian no she did as much did she ask Murphy has had any past involvement with the nation of Ukraine no that didn't come up none of that came up but he's qualified you know why is qualified to sit on the bonus board job with brace my that his dad got him because he used to be on the board of vice chair no less of the board of Amtrak which is another job but his dad got up because his dad is called Amtrak Joe when he's a powerful senator from Delaware in the northeastern corner which is the only place that Amtrak works and lunch bucket Joe is thrown billions and billions of dollars at Amtrak and then lo and behold his son is the vice chair of the board of directors of Amtrak hi five everybody woo all right it's good to be hunter Biden does not notary had all this free time does smoke crack and chase hookers and date his sisters widow and get kicked out of the navy and always had lots of free time because when he was naval officer was he already the vice chairman of the board of Amtrak when is senator dad was known as Amtrak Joe I'm just curious and you know ABC does it get into any of this stuff out I'll give my all give a break because they haven't heard the whole interview yet but I have a sneaking suspicion that when the entire interview has erred in its entirety to the extent that they're going to there it in its entirety they're going to edit out anything that might be you know she looks bad or anything I did notice that there was there they had him sitting at the kitchen counter all look real casual and stuff and if I'm not mistaken his sleeves were kind of just barely rolled up over his wrists at route one sound bite and then the next sound bite the sleeves rolled up above his elbows that I'm thinking maybe they'd they'd take a lunch break or walk in the woods or something maybe a long slow walk on the beach and maybe a glass pipe or something out in the woods I don't know but I did notice that so they had does some break time hunter Biden sits down for exclusive interview with ABC news you know the home of George Stephanopoulos and all kinds of great Democrats are Democrats everywhere everywhere everywhere I'm telling you yeah hunter Biden said now they BC news anchor she what she anchor I know that I've never seen or anchor anything Amy Robach over the weekend at his home in Los Angeles California the city of angels for an exclusive interview and no questions were off limits well they did that doesn't mean they're going to ask all the questions that just a no questions are off limits because they know they're not gonna ask anything that's going to be appointed or anything they're not gonna see if you're a Republican if you're the son of Republican politician you're very easy to crucify it would be it would be really easy to crucify this guy I'm sure what qualifies you if yes what qualifies you to be on the board of response and he said well I was on the board of Amtrak there should be a laugh track associated not just Amtrak a laugh track should be associated with that when he says that they should have like game show laugh track kick him well that's your qualification but wait your dad got yeah that job too he's Amtrak Joe he's thrown billions and Amtrak and then you get how much did they pay you now I want to know how much Amtrak paid for his vice chair did you know anything about trains well I had a train set when I was a kid it was a chose scale and and it was neat and had a coal car and and Michael Pierce he was saying this morning you know most kids when they ride Amtrak with their dad they might get a lapel pin or something that says Amtrak and then if you're really good you might get one of those Choo Choo Charlie engineer hats one of the blue and white striped you know kind of looks like a jiffy pop Pat you know and with the little Bremen it's an engine yeah you could wear and and have fun hunter were really good and we had as freight face pressed against the windows and you know what white powder around each nostril pressing his hands wet against the window Hey Hey look dad looking out to win no having a good time but instead to get in like if you're really good at and rich you might get a conductor hat those are pretty cool white they conductor hats you get a conductor had get an engineer had most kids might get a lapel pin he got vice chair of the board of directors of Amtrak that's pretty good that's not bad that said good to be in the ruling class this is see this is and the news media yeah like there's nothing to see here there's nothing illegal here well the standard is illegal okay the standard it's going to be a Democrat because the standard for Republicans is the perception of impropriety right any any perception of impropriety that's the standard for Democrats it's of course we're waiting for the results of the DNA test on the blue dress and then it depends on what the meaning of the word is is and the news media retreats and litigate so every word with you every strand of DNA with you there with you all the way just as they are with hunter Biden when they learn that he was also vice chair of the board of Amtrak they say oh so you were qualified instead of saying so the corruption in your family predates China and Ukraine also hunter Biden says in the interview that you know the billion dollars from the hedge fund from the Chinese before that front from the Chinese maybe a billion and a half dollars he said he hasn't made a penny off of that and if that's true let me just make a suggestion everyone here don't invest in hunter Biden's hedge fund because if the Chinese just throw you a billion billion and a half dollars for nothing because your dad went there and you came along on the big airplane and I wonder if you got like an airforce one happy probably got an airforce one had to wonder fees vice chairman of the board of Air Force One maybe Air Force to I guess to be a force to print amazing his vice chair of the board of all kinds of good stuff died so we got that going for us today and that's and that's.

we're at eight eight eight six three zero nine six two five eight eight eight six three oh nine six two five all kinds of great stuff today hunter Biden has broken his silence are they saying broken his silence better they don't say that about Democrats to the days he has broken his silence and they went to his multi million dollar lavish luxury residence in Los Angeles California where a Democratic Party fly for sent by ABC news asked a series of questions of hunter Biden it was very casual kind of during interview Amy Robach was the the Democrat party representative working for ABC news and she asked a series of questions she didn't ask ask questions like have you ever been to Ukraine because the interview isn't over yet there are they broken up into pieces because really it's about ratings and it's going to be on tonight and then later tonight and then maybe tomorrow to add a little pieces but Dave edited the the interview and I I'm sure they edited the questions before they ever walked into the room to make sure that it was all agreeable with the the Biden camp on the Biden family in the Democrat party writ large and all of that I still don't know whether he's ever been to you Ukraine he's done this massive very personal a deeply personal it was it was moving it was like a Barbara Walters interview and Hey aren't you a crack head gosh no please use a gentler

glass pipe or something out in the woods I don't know but I did notice that so they had does some break time hunter Biden sits down for exclusive interview with ABC news you know the home of George Stephanopoulos and all kinds of great Democrats are Democrats everywhere everywhere everywhere I'm telling you yeah hunter Biden sat down with ABC news anchor she what she anchor I don't I've never seen rancor anything Amy Robach over the weekend at his home in Los Angeles California the city of angels for an exclusive interview and no questions were off limits well they did that doesn't mean they're gonna ask all the questions that yes and no questions are off limits because they know they're not gonna ask anything that's going to be appointed or anything they're not going to see if your Republican if you're the son of Republican politician you're very easy to crucify it would be it would be really easy to crucify this got Sir what qualifies you it she asked what qualifies you to be on the board of a response and he said well I was on the board of Amtrak and that that there should be a laugh track associated not just Amtrak a laugh track should be associated with that when he says that they should have like game show laugh track kick him well that's your qualification but wait your dad got you that job too he's Amtrak Joe he's thrown billions and Amtrak and then you get how much did they pay you now I want to know how much Amtrak for his vice chair did you know anything about trains well I had a train set when I was a kid it was eight shows scale and and it was neat and had a coal car and and Michael Pierce he was saying this morning you know most kids when they ride Amtrak all with their dad they might get a lapel pin or something that says Amtrak and then if you're really good you might get one of those Choo Choo Charlie engineer hats one of the blue and white striped you know kind of looks like a jiffy pop Pat you know and with the little Bremen said engineer hat if you could wear and and have fun hunter were really good and we had as freight face pressed against the windows and you know white powder around each nostril pressing his hands flat against the window Hey Hey look dad looking out the window having a good time but instead to get in like if you're really good at and rich you might get a conductor hat those are pretty cool aren't they conductor hats you get a conductor had yet an engineer hat most kids might get a lapel pin he got vice chair of the board of directors of Amtrak that's pretty good that's not bad that's it good to be in the ruling class this is the this is and the news media yeah like there's nothing to see here there's nothing illegal here all the standard is illegal okay other standard it's good to be a Democrat because the standard for Republicans is the perception of impropriety right any any perception of impropriety that's the standard for Democrats it's of course we're waiting for the results of the DNA test on the blue dress and then it depends on what the meaning of the word is is and the news media retreats and litigate every word with you every strand of DNA with you there with you all the way just as they are with hunter Biden when they learn that he was also vice chair of the board of Amtrak they say oh so you were qualified instead of saying so the corruption in your family predates China and Ukraine also hunter Biden says in the interview that you know the billion dollars from the hedge fund from the Chinese before the hedge fund from the Chinese maybe a billion and a half dollars he said he hasn't made a penny off of that and if that's true let me just make a suggestion everyone here don't invest in hunter Biden's hedge fund because if the Chinese just throw your billion billion and a half dollars for not and because your dad went there and you came along I'm the big airplane and I wonder if you got like an airforce one happy probably got an airforce one had to I wonder if he's a vice chairman of the board of Air Force One.

Winners and Losers of the Democratic Debate

"The Democratic Party is trying to figure out who it is during these presidential primary debates the big it's the big highlights that you see we'll go through some of them it's all the Sniping Amy Klobuchar and Liz Warren and Kamala Harris get some shots in their Liz worn the people going after Elizabeth Warren then you've got booed edge in Baidoa going after each other and that's all very interesting the central fact of the debate is that Biden is falling apart his polling is collapsing his ability to stand on stage is collapsing Bernie Sanders had a heart attack a week and a half ago he seemed much much more lucid and vibrant and energetic than Joe Biden did and to our knowledge Joe Biden hasn't had any heart attacks this was all about your and he just he was saying things that didn't make a lot of sense he was kind of losing his train of thought he was pushing different analogies together it just didn't and buyer confidence that this is the guy at one point biden was explaining his economic plans and he said he was gonna he was gonNA stop people from clipping coupons in the stock market get what I've talked about is how you get things done and the way to get things done is take a look at the tax code right now the idea we have to start rewarding work just wealth I would eliminate the capital gains tax that would raise the capital gains tax to the highest rate of thirty nine point five percent I would double it because guess what why in God's name should someone who's clipping coupons in the stock market make in fact pay a lower tax rate than someone who in fact is like I said a schoolteacher and a firefighter it's ridiculous and they pay a lower tax so none of that is true nothing he said even comes close to approaching truth to be I don't even know how you judge the truth value of the statement clipping coupons in the stock market because people do not clear up coupons in this I guess they would be really just really good frugal stockbrokers if they clipped like if there were some coupon to get a better price on some mm some portion of a company doesn't make any sense I think what he was trying to say is people gambling in the stock market that's that's a frequent analogy you hear from the left and that it's unfair the people who are gambling are paying lower tax rate than their secretaries this is aligned Warren Buffett's used this line it just isn't true it is not true at all where does it come from it's because the capital gains tax rate is lower than the income tax rate for some people actually eat for people Oh who you know if you're talking about your secretary you're talking about the you know the janitor is paying more higher tax rate than the the stockbroker or the on manager of that perhaps isn't isn't true anyway even on the income tax rate but what happens is for a lot of people work in finance they get a salary but then they get most of their money as a bonus or in when you're talking about the millionaire billionaire class they're paying capital gains on the or paying capital gains taxes on their investment income so you're not even talking about bonuses you're not talking about income you talk about money that's in the market that's investments and then the money that you make out of those investments you pay a lower tax rate even on that that is money that has already been taxed at the corporate level so even that argument is not true but y the way this gets interpreted is that billionaires are paying less money in taxes than their secretaries that is never that's not even close to true the wealthy in this country pay virtually all of the taxes the top ten percent pay the vast majority of taxes in this country top one percent pay a lion share of taxes in this country I mean the half of the country doesn't pay any taxes at all in terms of federal income taxes so this whole argument is bogus the problem with Biden is not that he's making a bogus argument everybody was up there said he wasn't even making the argument well and he was confusing his words and then here's the knockout punch they brought up Ukraine Anderson Cooper brings up Ukraine and Joe Biden incredibly lies on camera again and says he never discussed Ukraine with us President Yeah as you've said your son Hunter today gave an interview admitted that he made a mistake and showed poor judgment by serving on the board in Ukraine and did you make a mistake by letting him you're the point person on Ukraine at the time if you can answer book my son statement speaks for itself I did my job never discussed a single thing with my son about anything having to do with their crane known is indicated I have we've always kept everything separate even when my son was the attorney general of the state works we never discussed the there'd be no potential conflict okay there's a lot of confusion here first of all he says he's doubling down on a statement that he made that no one his ever suggested that Joe Biden talked with Ukraine or talked with his son about Ukraine and there's no evidence of that at all the trouble is someone has suggested that the person who suggested that was Hunter Biden in a New Yorker profile in July and he actually reiterated that statement on good morning Arca on ABC News two days ago did you and your father ever discuss you know as I said only time was after news count it wasn't a discussion in any way there's no to this no we never did what hold on hold on you say did you ever discuss Ukraine he goes no just one time there was one time we I'll shoot they told me not to say that no there's no but we didn't we wasn't even a discussion sure we said something he said something we were talking about it but that's not I wouldn't call that a discussion it was more of a discourse it was more of a Colo Que- it was next question place past next question Joe Biden even in his answer by the way he says we never talked about Ukraine even when my son was the attorney general of Delaware that's not the sun we're talking about joe his Sun Beau Biden his late son Bo Biden was the attorney general of Delaware the son who was on the Ukrainian Energy Board was Hunter Biden and hundred says he did talk about it and Hunter Biden goes on because good morning America their credit actually pushed him on it. There's an old saying you didn't talk about it then you're saying you did talk about it by the way what were you doing on the board in the first place that I hope you know what you're doing doing I said I do and that was literally the discussion why because my dad was vice president United States there's literally nothing as young man or as a full grown adult that my father in some way has not influence over as it does not serve either one of us when he said I hope you know what you're doing what did he think you were doing well he read the press reports that I joined the board of reasonable which was eight Ukrainian natural gas company and there's been a lot of misinformation Shen about me not about my dad nobody buys at but advises idea that I was unqualified to be on the board what were your qualifications to be on the border berries I was sharing with the board Amtrak for five years I was the chairman of the board of the UN World Food Program I was a lawyer for boies Schiller flexner one of the most prestigious law firms in the world didn't have any extensive knowledge about natural gas or Ukraine itself though no but I think that I had as much as anybody else that was on the board for yeah this is this is not going well for Hunter Biden because he's right he probably didn't have any less knowledge than anyone else on the board this is a crooked board that's what really anti boards are certainly an oligarch countries like Ukraine when and corrupt countries like Ukraine they say what previous experience did you have what qualified you to be on the board of this Ukrainian energy company while you're while your father was vice president as well I was on the board of Amtrak you know that other company that has a relationship to the federal government that my father famously travels on so much that they call him Amtrak Joe Yeah it was on that so what are you calling me a nepotistic for and before that I was on another board and hey look I did have one real job I worked for boies Schiller which is maybe the most famous democratic lobbying law firm in the country okay all right doesn't acquit himself very well here so biden collapses on stage in real time two ways to respond to this for the Democratic Party and for the candidates they can either remain hardline progressives or they can try to take Bernie Haddens place in the moderate lane because the moderate lane now is falling apart so there is an opening here I was wondering I thought why on Earth was the Lgbtq townhall on Friday what was the purpose of this and then it occurred to me people were tweeting about this they had that LGBTQ crazy town town all on Friday because then it allowed the Democrats to look more moderate at this debate just a week later less than a week later while we're having to discuss any of the LGBT issues in the pronouns and the genders so there was a real opening and I think the Democratic Party tried to try to make sure it looked in opening four moderate now some candidates can't take that Bernie Sanders is never going to be a moderate he went full bore leftist last night he said on the collectivist issue Parekh Salon climate change you said it's the greatest threat that the planet has ever faced this planet faces the greatest threat in its history from climate change and the green new deal that I have advocated will create up to twenty million jobs as we move away from fossil fuel energy efficiency and sustainable energy all right the weather which may or may not increase in temperatures slightly a little bit over the next century he is the greatest threat the planet has ever faced says Bernie Sanders the man who probably never heard of the Cretaceous Paleo gene mass extinction event three quarters of it wiped out he probably hasn't heard of that one so he's just it's a little historical ignorance for him that's the far left that's about as far left as you go with Bernie Sanders Baidoa Rourke so trying to play into that left Lane Betas campaign is falling apart I mean there's pretty much no reason should be at this debate anymore and so he's he's been trying to signal that he's as left as they come over the past few months this is after a career where he played himself off mostly as a moderate in Congress and so he obviously doesn't believe in anything but he felt leftism was going to bring them all the way it looks like that's not gonna work so he's one last tries going to say that we're going to undermine the second amendment he's GonNa take away all your guns go door to door take them all away how exactly are you going to force people to give up their weapons you don't even know who has those weapons look we're GonNa make sure the the priority is saving the lives of our fellow Americans I think almost everyone on this stage agrees that it's not right and as president would seek to ban the sale of fifteens and AK47's those are weapons of war they were designed to kill people effectively efficiently on a battlefield to be clear exactly how are you going to take away

"To Amtrak Joe get his nickname well that's Joe Biden Amtrak Joe his Amtrak Joe there is a headline from CNN from two thousand sixteen Biden announces two point four five billion federal loan to Amtrak and his sons the vice chair of the board of directors boy you know lunch bucket Joe he is brag about riding the train and they said he knew the names of the conductors and stuff he didn't but that's okay he said he used to hang out of the home depot nobody knew him there is to love to go to that local diner that closed eighteen years ago or whatever it was well good Tuesday to you and welcome we're at eight eight eight six three zero nine six two five eight eight eight six three oh nine six two five all kinds of great stuff today hunter Biden has broken his silence are they saying broken his silence better they don't say that about Democrats to their needs he has broken his silence and they went to his multi million dollar lavish luxury residence in Los Angeles California where a Democrat party fly for sent by ABC news asked a series of questions of hunter Biden it was very casual kind of during interview Amy Robach was the the Democrat party representative working for ABC news and she asked a series of questions she didn't ask ask questions like have you ever been to Ukraine course the interview isn't over yet there are they broken up into pieces because really it's about ratings and it's going to be on tonight and then later tonight and then maybe tomorrow too and little pieces but Dave edited the the interview and I I'm sure they edited the questions before they ever walked into the room to make sure that it was all agreeable with the the Biden camp on the Biden family in the Democrat party writ large and all of that I still don't know whether he's ever been to you Ukraine he's done this massive very personal a deeply personal it was it was moving it was like a Barbara Walters interview and Hey aren't you a crack head gosh no please use a gentler language and we've got great audio from the hunter Biden interview and and I didn't know I did not know until this day that that it was bars any all along that I didn't know until this day that that hunter Biden was also the vice chair of the board of directors of Amtrak while his senator father was nicknamed Amtrak Joe because of all the funding that he made sure that Amtrak got then I guess maybe a part of the deal is that his son gets the job as vice chair of the board of directors of Amtrak then and you see ABC news looks at this and you know what they do with it they say she he's qualified to be on the board of Burris much because he was vice chair of the board of Amtrak the casual corruption of the ruling class then the news and the news media is in on the joke any Amy Robach she she's in on the joke robot cat and a like Sears Roebuck no not not exactly but she's in on the joke and George Stephanopoulos sees the host of Good Morning America they're show that this aired on this morning and he's in on the joke he's a he's a Clinton administration official and then CNN will be reporting on it later today they'll have you Jim sciutto talking about it and he's an Obama administration official cannot NBC they'll have Chuck Todd talking about and his wife basically words for Bernie Sanders and he's a former Democrat Senate campaign staffer himself no problem they all live in their million dollar homes and have their places in Martha's vineyard thanks to the generosity of the Democratic Party to a very large extent and so naturally they're not going to bite the hand that feeds them okay come on is pretty straight forward stuff here it's called so what is the word that we use for this corruption it's called corruption not the the mere fact that it's normal shouldn't make it okay as my friend heather said just a little while ago this morning I think we fought a revolution some time ago to put an end to this kind of family favoritism an inherited well fed and hair did power didn't wait yeah I'm not really we I mean we yes we did but but it's come back with a vengeance and hunter Biden is just one of the beneficiaries one of the many beneficiaries of all of this and if the New York times were a newspaper of CNN where a news organization you know what they might do and also they said they didn't get into you know hunter Biden says what were you greater she asked where you qualified to be on the board a brief smile and and he says well as qualified as anybody else on the board then did you go down the list of other people on the board like Cofer black from the CIA a big wig at the CIA suddenly is on the board of Burris Mar a Ukrainian energy company and and so is hunter Biden what a coincidence one of the and hunter Biden's body his old body and business partner he's on the border bris much too and they're all getting paid these truckloads of money as for apparently not doing much not did she ever ask I'm looking for Michael here did you ever ask him whether he's ever set foot in Ukraine that didn't come up get it did she ask him if he speaks Ukrainian no should an estimate did she ask Murphy has had any past involvement with the nation of Ukraine no that didn't come up none of that came up but he's qualified you know why is qualified to sit on the on this board job with parades about that is that got him because he used to be on the board of vice chair no less of the board of Amtrak which is another job but his dad got him because his dad is called Amtrak Joe when he's a powerful senator from Delaware in the northeastern corner which is the only place that Amtrak works and lunch bucket Joe is thrown billions and billions of dollars at Amtrak and then lo and behold his son is the vice chair of the board of directors of Amtrak hi five everybody woo all right it's good to be hunter Biden does that no water had all this free time does smoke crack and chase hookers and date his sisters widow and get kicked out of the navy and all those yet lots of free time because when he was a naval officer was he already the vice chairman of the board of Amtrak when is senator dad was known as Amtrak Joe I'm just curious and you know ABC news said to get into any of this stuff that I'll I'll give my all give a break because they have an error the whole interview yet but I have a sneaking suspicion that when the entire interview has erred in its entirety to the extent that they're going to in its entirety they're going to edit out anything that might be it up he looks bad or anything I did notice that there was there they had him sitting at the kitchen counter all look real casual and stuff and if I'm not mistaken his sleeves were kind of just barely rolled up over his wrists at route one sound bite and then the next town by their sleeves rolled up above his elbows that I'm thinking maybe they they take a lunch break or walk in the woods or something maybe a long slow walk on the beach and maybe a glass pipe or something out in the woods I don't know but I did notice that so they had does some break time hunter Biden sits down for exclusive interview with ABC news you know the home of George Stephanopoulos and all kinds of great Democrats are Democrats everywhere everywhere everywhere I'm telling you yeah hunter Biden sat down with ABC news anchor she what she anchor I don't I've never seen rancor anything Amy Robach over the weekend at his home in Los Angeles California the city of angels for an exclusive interview and no questions were off limits well they did that doesn't mean they're going to ask all the questions that just that no questions are off limits because they know they're not gonna ask anything that's going to be appointed or anything they're not going to see if your Republican if you're the son of Republican politician you're very easy to crucify it would be it would be really easy to crucify that's got Sir what qualifies you it is yes what qualifies you to be on the board of a response and he said well I was on the board of Amtrak and that that there should be a laugh track associated not just Amtrak a laugh track should be associated with that when he says that they should have like game show laugh track can we help that's your qualification but wait your dad got you that job too he's Amtrak Joe he's thrown billions and Amtrak and then you get how much did they pay you now I want to know how much Amtrak for his vice chair did you know anything about trains well I had a train set when I was a kid it was eight shows scale and and it was neat and had a coal car and and Michael Pierce he was saying this morning you know most kids when they ride Amtrak all with their dad they might get a lapel pin or something that says Sam track and then if you're really good you might get one of those Choo Choo Charlie engineer hats one of the blue and white striped you know kind of looks like a jiffy pop Pat you know and with the little Bremen said engineer hat if you could wear and and have fun hunter were really good and we had as freight face pressed against the windows and you know white powder around each nostril pressing his hands flat against the window Hey Hey look dad looking out the window having a good time but instead to get in like if you're really good at and rich you might get a conductor hat those are pretty cool aren't a conductor hats you get a conductor had got an engineer hat most kids might get a lapel pin he got vice chair of the board of directors of Amtrak that's pretty good that's not bad that's it's good to be in the ruling class this is see this is and the news media yeah like there's nothing to see here there's nothing illegal here other standard is illegal okay other standard it's good to be a Democrat because the standard for Republicans is the perception of impropriety right any any perception of impropriety that's the standard for Democrats it's of course we're waiting for the results of the DNA test on the blue dress and then it depends on what the meaning of the word is is and the news media retreats and litigate every word with you every strand of DNA with you there with you all the way just as they are with hunter Biden when they learn that he was also vice chair of the board of Amtrak they say oh so you were qualified instead of saying so the corruption in your family predates China and Ukraine also hunter Biden says in the interview that you know the billion dollars from the hedge fund from the Chinese before the hedge fund from the Chinese maybe a billion and a half dollars he said he hasn't made a penny off of that and if that's true let me just make a suggestion everyone here don't invest in hunter Biden's hedge fund because if the Chinese just throw you a billion billion and a half dollars for not and because your dad went there and you came along I'm a big airplane and I wonder if you got like an airforce one half he probably got an airforce one had to I wonder if he's the vice chairman of the board of Air Force One maybe Air Force to I guess a beer for us to print amazing his vice chair of the board of all kinds of good stuff right so we got that going for us today and that's and that's a lot of fun we also have Turkey and Syria we have lots of climate craziness because.

"Hey by the way congratulations on some of the high speed money that's gonna be coming out. of the sandbag budget he can to get widening there on the sixty seven in some places this is great yeah I think we have got way too much emphasis by the way on on high speed rail in trolleys in transit sin all people want drive their cars like normal regular people have for fifty years I don't want to write a train if I want to write a train of bomb a move to Baltimore. I'll move to Baltimore right a train hi I live in California I don't need to train train can't take me to cosco train can't take me to when co it's like living in hell this is stupid transducer the reason why trains work is because like New York City is all you know fifteen square miles what the hell it is he you don't have trains out here I mean from where I'm sitting in the studio here where John is is at least six miles and we're just right next to each other yeah take a trip to see you I take the train to go see you John up into macula cheese as just a five oh six to Temecula. yeah Paul in San Diego not take a train to see Paul either I'll take my car Paul what's on your mind welcome.

A. R. officer giving detailed to the White House before before the call before one well New York thanks for the report came out right okay. in the and the staff now he's got he's got a staff they identified this guy they know what those guys or or her leanings were politically. and they said the plant the spy but they put into the White House they send him or her this information. okay. then they created the impression that they were trying to hide this you know I know of course they they've raised all the conversations with Fortin you know what foreign dignitaries to that level where you know we get sequestered away you know in a special way this time been done before because all the leaks so what happened is they said secondhand third hand like let's essentially water cooler conversations. however this was right and then trump behave exactly the way that they would expect him okay to behave as soon as the mall report okay assumes that died the next day he does this call. Hey you need to clear up you know well verbally you know on the open that he wants to per you want to pursue this stuff with you crazy and and that's really the weak point that's where all the bodies are buried right. and so their plant. you know essentially tells them you know Hey he put you know I heard. blah blah blah you know from my sources that he you know was arm twisting the president of Ukraine you know mentioned Joe Biden eight times you know all this all this ridiculous stuff and they bought it hook line and sinker that's the reason why Nancy Pelosi we forward with this even though from said Hey I'm going to release the call the transcript of a call tomorrow. she went ahead with it anyway because even in her world you know personal everything scheduled out they wanted to.

"Sat on four acres. Of property late at night it was possible to imagine you were all, alone in the world tonight However I wasn't alone Ahead in the woods was the pinprick of light and now I smelled tobacco a familiar brand Marlboro. Reds don't get your hopes up I told myself hope he's just a. Four, letter word okay That is the arrival of course of Barack Obama into the pages. Of your book of course it's a dark mysterious arrival. Of the former best. Friend and the book is really about two, people sort of reconnecting after they've. Had a little bit of time apart the entire book is first person told by Biden himself why, Biden not Obama I tried to get into little bama's head but you just can't do it you think there's so much going, on in there and as. Soon as you, start poking around it just sort of demystify is that he becomes just a. Regular guy, and, we spent eight years watching him in, the. White House. Not as a regular guy but to me. Joe Biden has always been a? Regular guy that's part of his own mystique is that hey I'm just, I'm just Dunkel Jalen man, track Joe Biden. Obama relationship has been described as a. Bromance when did it occur to you that it would. Make Good foundation for a full length whodunnit like this I thought about it for years. Doing just a book about Joe Biden nor narrator you could imagine him in the vice presidency with nothing to do sort of, daydreaming Walter Mitty like existence through his aviator shades but really never got off the ground and it wasn't until they were out, of, office, for a week that I was like oh well I need to have them together because those bromance memes had been going around the internet where it was Joe Biden like pulling pranks on the, incoming president in, the, White House and Obama going Joe stop it. Joe and he really had to have. Them together I realized to have a compelling story and the basic premise of this plot, is that an Amtrak conductor from the Wilmington station Delaware, Biden's? Home state is mysteriously murdered or found dead right so you have Someone who's. Close to Joe in the story is found dead in shows up mysteriously one night and says oh I have some information here, that you may want to hear about and even though we're talking Amtrak here and and the mystery that surrounds this death you, keep, the, book away from political third rails you're not touching anything to controversial yeah yeah I think some of the most controversial stuff in the book might be the the defensive Amtrak that Joe Biden gives, in it because, he's, very passionate about that but yeah like I. Said it's it's really down to earth. And and it doesn't go over the top I mean although there are parts where you, know Joe Biden might be hanging off of a speeding, train? By three fingers It does go to. Some sort, of wild places like that really that's, happened surely at some point they don't call him Amtrak Joe for nothing All right Andrew Shaffer his latest book is hope. Never. Dies and. Obama Biden mystery thanks so much for joining us thank you down.
