Ep. 660 - Fake Hate, Real Hate
The New York Times a former newspaper has released a scathing five hundred thirty two thousand word investigative report of crack investigations by crack investigators investigating crackly. The report reveals for the first time ever that President Donald Trump has repeatedly complained about being investigated by FBI agents who hated him so much they were willing to violate every possible code of ethics to overturn an election by creating a false narrative about some Russian Michigan that never happened the times. And so help me I am not making this up illustrated. This nine hundred forty seven thousand word crack investigative article by crack investigators with a full page of charts showing exactly how many times the president complained about being the target of a completely bogus investigation into a completely. Imaginary incident, the page also includes calendar showing every day on which Trump unleashed his unreasonable rants against this coup attempt by Google. Power-mad lunatics now at last we knew that the president was complaining when he complained openly for everyone to see times, White House reporter and secret Clinton hack. Maggie Haberman said in an in depth interview with herself, quote, what sort of monstrous authoritarian would attack the hard work of fine, upstanding, rogue deep state fascist spending millions of dollars of the public money on a complete waste of time. It's the job of myself in the New York Times to ensure our wonderful overweening and out of control federal law agencies can continue to run roughshod over her rights with impunity. That is the true meaning of journalism on quote, the seven million sixty six hundred thousand fourteen word investigative investigation is entitled intimidation pressure and humiliation inside Trump's two year war on the investigations encircling him because that sounded better than distraction blithering and misinformation inside the New York Times attempt to explain why they haven't been covering the Obama judge. Justice Department's blatantly unconstitutional malfeasance, if you miss this crack investigative report investigatory crack nece it is still available to read at the bottom of a birdcage in my living room, assuming you can make out the words underneath all the canary crap trigger warning I'm Andrew klavan. This is the Andrew klavan show. Just to give. Joe also say. Thompson zippy's so wonderful. Here is some breaking news. The world does not exist inside your head. I know if you're a leftist this will come as a big surprise. But there really is such a thing as reality and one of the central tasks of life is finding out how reality works. So you don't keep banging your head on it. Because while the world doesn't exist inside your head an image of the world does exist there, and that image is what guides our lives this images made of extrapolations generalizations developed from the things we actually know the things we actually know are remarkably limited, you only get about eighty or ninety years of experience, if you're lucky, and no matter how many people you'll be you'll get to observe only a very few of them in any meaningful way. That's why you have phenomenon like bigots who makes stupid generalizations about the opposite sex or other races based on their mothers or the one girl who cheated on them or some black activists. They saw on TV to supplement. The little information. We get from life. We learn stuff we re books. We watch news reports, and documentaries we absorb art always comparing these to real life. And always taking account of the sources of the information and all the while if we're smart, and if we want to become wise, we do something else we change our minds. As new information comes in. If you haven't seriously changed one of your major opinions in the last ten years, or so you're not paying attention or you're working for the news media who in the case of the Jesse small at hoax and the Russia collusion hoax are now in a full scale panic trying to attack there to protect their imagination of the world from the reality of the world itself will take a look and just a sec. But first let me tell you about light stream. I do this. I'm sure you do it. I walk into stores, I spend money using a credit card. I do not think about his spending money because it's just this plastic thing that I stick in a machine, and then I have the stuff I want, you know. And then what happens the Bill comes due talk about reality. And you suddenly want to rip out your eyes and possibly hang yourself. Here is a better idea. Try light St. with light stream you can consolidate multiple credit card payments down to. To one payment and get a lower rate, and that is saying something because the rate on those credit cards can be this is that the right word. No, it's not if it can it can be incredibly steep credit card consolidation loans. From light stream will give you a rate as low as six point one four percent APR with auto pay and there are zero fees. The rate is fixed. It will never it will never go up. And if you want to save even more my listeners, get additional interest rate discount, the only way to get that discount is to go to light stream dot com slash Andrew.

And remember, you know, you have to think about this. There was a moment. When Jesse small it was thinking something to himself like should. I enjoy my talent succession thank God for all my blessings or should. I hope the police and pretend to be victim and risk disgrace and prison. Well, you know, I I won't tell it now, but aren't at joke. I talk about the guy wished for an orange Ed jussie small at there. He is. So he wanted to get beat up in Chicago. Well, the superintendent of police Eddie Johnson gave him exactly what he wanted smacked him around. But good this is the first cut where he talks about with Jesse small. It was cut eleven. This announcement today recognizes that empire actor jussie smollet took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career. I'm left hanging. My head and asking why? Why would anyone especially an African American man? Use the symbolism of noose to make false accusations. Out could someone look at the hatred and suffering associated with that symbol and CNN opportunity to manipulate that symbol to further his own public profile. Can an individual who's been embraced by the city of Chicago. Turnaround slap everyone in this city in the face by making these false claims. See the thing is if you wanna get smacked in Chicago, you wanna get smacked by a couple of brothers. You hired yourself. Not by the police because that's not a good situation. He's been charged with a felony count of disorderly conduct. But after here's the interesting thing after Johnson superintendent Johnson finished smacking Jesse around. He went after the media. And this is what he said listen to this we discovered the actual motives, quite frankly, it pissed everybody off, you know, because we have to invest valuable resources a lot of what I want. You ought to really understand is when you all put things out there. Into the universe. That's not actual facts than it causes us to have to chase. All that stuff down those are resources and time spit that we'll never get back that we could utilize for another investigation. I don't I mean, no disrespect to the superintendent. When I say explaining what a fact is to the news media is a very very difficult thing to do. They're going Afaq. Could you spell that force? You know when I was a reporter. I went said to a cop, you know, you, and I we work we we both worked for the people. And he said, no you work for a corporation. I work for the people. That's right. The police of the ones looking for fact, the news organizations work for corporations on our selling a point of view that the corporations want you to believe if you don't believe this. Let me show you an amazing amazing cut. I'm going to play this first and then comment on it afterward of the diff- of Don lemon. Now, I understand picking on Don, lemon is is, you know, picking on a guy who can think very well. But still Don lemon is reacting to this thing that he was trying to sell as, you know, a symbolic of what America's like during the tyranny of the Trump administration. And now it's been caught out and he's talking to their. To Joey Jackson their legal analyst are this is cutting eight not come to number seven number eight. And he's he's talking about what has just happened to jussie small at as he gets charged. A good lawyer can get you out just about anything, right or reduce whatever it is that you're going to suffer in the court of public opinion jussie has lost. He's lost the fight in the court of public opinion. And that's where his battle is. Whether legally if he has to go, whatever he has to serve if it's daytime if he has to do probation, if he has to pay whatever, but in the court of public opinion, it matter it matters. And he's lost that because of how not his fault. Maybe people were. I don't know what they were saying to him how the maybe because of his representatives. Who knows I don't know what it was handled poorly. I don't know if it's not his fault on his fault was doing what he wants. He went out, and he gave the interview so understand this from now, let's talk from a defense perspective. There's two things to think about. Number one is the law, and whether it makes sense legally to be out there speaking and everything else from that perspective. It's damning all those things. You heard him say on TV going to be played in a courtroom for my public relations imperative people say oh get in front of the cameras express. What happened show some show some real anger? Joe some this that the other the fact is that works from populations protective. But it doesn't work in this. It doesn't work. I just wonder I wish I wish I could read Joey Jackson's mind in that moment. This is the guy. He's trying to explain to him the difference. And he says, well, it's not his fault. He lost in the court of public opinion joins accidents. We the facts now, he's dealing with people who deal with the facts when you're in a courtroom. Yeah. There's emotion, but basically, you're dealing with the cops you're dealing with the courts, you're dealing with the facts, and he was not allegedly allegedly. He made this whole thing up. He hired these guys to basically attack him and make him into a victim because he was tired of being a successful TV star. You know, who wants to be in on the left who wants to be a successful TV star. If you can be a victim. But more than that more than that. He was trying to impose his imagination onto the world. He imagined that under the tyranny of Donald Trump, he imagines he's persecuted imagines the world is a terrible place. He just not getting the love. They're also saying he may have sent that threat to himself through the mail, and that could be a federal crime. That he could really be in trouble. They're basically he's got this thing this image in his head. And when the world is not living up to that image in his head. He's going to impose it on the world. Unfortunately, he's dealing with the cops. Don't like when you do that the cops like the facts, and Don lemon doesn't know the difference. What's the problem with what happened that Jesse small far in Don limbs mind, it's not that he got the world wrong. It's not that he jumped on this false story because he has a false perception of the world, which would be what I would be asking myself. Why did I make this mistake? That's what you'd ask. When you make a mistake. You say why did I make a mistake? What did I do wrong? Where did I get this wrong where it was like coming from? Where was my bias not? If you're done lemon. Here's the problem with this story blowing up in lemons face. Out every single moment and cable news, Sean Hannity gonna eat justly small. Let's lunch every single second tug across is going to eat just a small as lunch every single sector as president of the United States is going to eat his lunch and route as the president of the United States watch every night. You will new well cable news. That's all I'm saying. They left bureau bubbling out of the room, and he pounds that was been planet again. That's the Republicans pouncing there. And that's the problem. It's not the problem is he might lose this battle for the imaginations of the public because his imagination doesn't represent the world. Instead of changing his mind. Let us talk talking about facts. Let's talk about Honey, this is another thing. That knows his done for me. I gotta admit he recommended Honey to me, you can put it on your computer in about fifteen seconds. And it will get it. What it does? Is. It gets you deals.

The smart shopping assistant to help you save time and money use it every single day, and it has saved me a bundle. So. So Don, lemon the news media in general is trying to defend its imagination imaginary world that image of the world. It's been in its head from the real world that keeps intruding and keeps going wrong, and they're not just doing it with the Jesse small small let case doing it. Also with the Russian hoax all week long. This this guy Andrew McCabe, the interim head of the FBI was fired for lying has been going around selling his book and telling the story about how horrifying it all wasn't why they had to start this investigation. Russia. Meanwhile, CNN is saying that a Muller will finish his report by next week. I think they're saying I don't know if this is true of Trump is going to be in Vietnam next week. And I'm not sure they would release the report certainly I don't think they'd release it while Trump was out of the country. But who knows what CNN people are saying. And the fact is they're starting to get the feeling that. Oh, wait. Maybe this report is not going to do what they wanted to do which is destroy Trump's life. Which is what they've been trying to do for the. Past two years. So Andrew McCabe going around spreading selling his book telling these stories that have just becoming more and more absurd. And it's just becoming more and more apparent that? The press has missed the biggest story of their lifetime. The biggest story that most reporters are going to see in their lifetime. Was that? There was in fact, an attempt to overturn election by bunch of people who panicked at the sight of Donald Trump coming down the road. Not because of what Trump believe not. Because of who he was because he was not one of them. He was not one of them. I don't think they would have panicked. I mean, I don't think they would panic. Ted Cruz is certainly a true conservative. But I don't think they would have done the same thing to him because he is a political animal. Trump is a guy they didn't know they didn't know what to think, and they panicked and Trump has been just making apps. He's been smush ING McKay. But here's what he hears his comment on what McCain has been doing why they Andrew McCabe as made a fool out of himself over the. Couple of days, and he really looks to me like sort of a poor man's J. Edgar Hoover as a I think is a disaster. And what he was trying to do is terrible. And he was caught. I'm very proud to say we caught him. So we'll see what happens. But he he is a disgraced man he was terminated not by me. He was terminated by others. The idea report was a disaster disaster from his point anybody reading the report would say how could a man like this be involved with the FBI the FBI has some of the greatest people some of the finest people you'll ever meet. But this man is a complete disaster. Trump. Trump on Andrew McCabe, just a remind you McCabe has been going around saying that after Trump was elected and after he fired James Komi that was the important thing fired him as he had every right to do as constitutional right to do basically Andrew McCabe said what are we going to do? We've got to make sure this guy we got to investigate his ties to Russia. They'd already had been investigating his campaign. We have to we have to find out if he's a Russian spy, you know, if he's a board. You know, they even was a source. Mccabe is actually suggesting this an ABC had reported earlier on the basis of sources that they've been investigating Jeff Sessions as a possible Russian spy Jeff Sessions, write until until Donald Trump. Jeff sentence was the very image of anti Russian evil, you know, anti-socialist conservatism. Now, suddenly he's bores baton off. But you have to understand if if Andrew McCabe made a fool of himself is because he was under so much stress. These are from greedy and different interviews. He's been giving these comments about the twenty fifth amendment about wearing a wire have been a little bit distracting. But nevertheless, we were all operating under incredible stress. You have to remember, savannah. This came at an incredibly stressful time to be fair. It was an unbelievably stressful time, I can't even describe for you. How many things must have been coursing through the deputy attorney general's mind at that point, it is understandable. He's an under an enormous amount of stress at the. Time the point is the the stress and the complexity of the issues that we were discussing at the time. I can't describe to you accurately enough the pressure and the chaos so you can see that in those conditions. Those incredibly stressful times it was incredibly turbulent incredibly stressful. And it was clear to me that that stress was was impacting, the deputy attorney general. What was stressful about it? What was so stressful about a president was elected? They didn't like the Obama administration didn't like and fire James Comey. As was his right. What was so stressful? It what was it was another day at the office. And there was nothing so stressful. What was it was him talking about living in his imagination? I mean, this is the thing when you're just small it and your TV star and your career is going. Well, and you feel oppressed that's stressful. But it's in your imagination when you're Andrew McCabe and the bosses fired as as happens a lot in Washington, and you don't like the president. That's just another day the stresses in your imagination, and what what scenario was in Andrew McCabe imagination. Listen to this. Anderson Cooper, confronts him with the idea that essentially he's confessing to a deep state. Cu I mean, if they were covering if this were Barack Obama, the New York Times would be running war declared size headlines saying that the FBI had tried to overturn election. It wouldn't just be guys getting fired as they have been the results of the scandal are all there. But they'd be fired. They'd be dragged through the mud they'd be tarred and feathered they'd be thrown in the Hudson. They'd be pelted with rotten tomatoes. Instead, it's just like whatever happened to all those guys the FBI. Oh, they're selling a book now. Oh, good. Let's let's go and buy buy his book. Listen to Anderson Cooper confronted with this. When people say, you are the Pitta me of the deep state that you that you are. Pano number one deep state actor even revealed, how do you push back on that? I mean Anderson I find that so incredibly offensive, and I think that the millions of men and women who serve this country every day in all kinds of roles across the federal government would also find that offensive people who say things like that aren't thinking about all of the things that this government does to serve this society fairly and consistently every day. The fact is I like all the men and women in the FBI people across government in the military. I did my job I stood up to the obligations of my office when presented with facts we made hard decisions decisions that we knew would be tough on the organization would be tough on us. Personally. Look what I've gone through as a result of those decisions, but we did them anyway because we are committed to. To a responsibilities and serving this country. Do you still believe the president could be a Russian asset? I think it's possible. I'm offended that anybody would think that I was running too deep state. Cu is the president of Russia's spy. Oh, yeah. That's what it is. You know, by the way in minutes that he hides behind the skirts of the rank and file agents who had nothing to do with this. I mean, most of the agents the FBI or out getting people on fraud. They're hunting gangsters they are hunting terrorists. And this guy is saying you when you call me an agent of the deep state, you're insulting them. I know we're not we're so you it's you you did this. And then he says the Trump may have been a Russian asset. So James Clapper now James Clapper has been an anti-trump enemy. There's the former national intelligence director the guy lied about spying on us under oath. But so now so that gets is qualified you for job at CNN as a commentator. He's being interviewed here. And they say, well, she says to him. Well, what he is is Trump a Russian asset is a witting Russian asset. And he says look that's really unlikely. That's ridiculous. That's not. That's not what's happening. She says, but is an unwitting Russian asset. To this exchange. Do you see evidence of some kind that President Trump is an unwitting asset of Russia? Well, the strange thing I think that bothered a lot of people. Both in and out of the intelligence community is strange of personal deference to Putin by by the president. And I speculated in the past that the way Putin behaves is to treat. President Trump as an asset. Well, because of you consider Putin's background as as as a trained experienced KGB agent, and how he would approach somebody that he is trying to co-opt or influence or gain leverage over and in this case, you know, peel to ego. And so in that, and that sense in that context is what I think when I mean, a potential unwitting asset. So in other words, Putin may have played Trump like he played Obama like he played George W Bush. But those guys didn't get investigated though, investigation only happened here. This is imagine nation run wild that has guys who still and they're still saying, you know, well, even if even if the mullahs report doesn't have anything they'll still be other investigations because they want to defend their imaginations from the world. They want to defend their image of the world from the world. I'm going to finish with this in a minute. But first let me talk about movement watches. Here's mine. One of mine. This one I really like it's really beautiful one and I love watches, but I don't want to spend a gazillion dollars on them. I just I just can't justify that to myself movement has got that figured out. They have really beautiful styles. They looked good. But they keep it simple. They don't tell you. How many steps you've taken? They're not like those little computerized things. They just tell you the time in a fashionable really nice way and movement watch a start at just ninety five bucks. These watches the could cost you four hundred five hundred dollars for the same quality from traditional brands, but these have clean design, minimal quality products. They have sold almost two million watches in over one hundred and sixty countries you can get fifteen percent, by the way. I should just remind you that the way they'd cut the prices or by taking up the Valles. So it's M V. Mt. That's how you spell movement. You don't wanna pay extra for those expensive valve? You can also get fifteen percent off today with free shipping and free returns by going to movement dot com slash Andrew. That's M V. Mt dot com. Mm slash Andrew movements launching new styles on their site. All the time. Check out their latest at movement dot com to movement dot com slash Andrew and join the momentum because there are no valves joining the movement. All right. So I just just to compare for minute. We have a hate crime hoax from Jesse small. We have a Russian hoax where the FBI are basically trying to overturn an election led by guys like Komi and Andrew McCabe. Meanwhile, we have real FBI ages busting a real hater doing their jobs. That's what the world looks like when it's operating the way it should because we shouldn't forget, you know, that just because they're running hate hoaxes doesn't mean there isn't hatred and just because some of these guys at the top of the FBI were Obama hacks doesn't mean all these agents who went who went into this profession hoping to help people hoping to protect the country doesn't mean they're not doing their job. So I just wanna point out that it was. A Coast Guard Lieutenant who was a white nationalist. They found him. I think they don't they haven't revealed how they found him. But it sounded like they were hanging out on white nationalist fronts, and they found him. He he's accused of plotting assassinations of prominent left-wingers he had an arsenal. They had a big picture of his of his arsenal. Not going to tell you the name because what difference? Does it make sense to give them the wants to give them the publicity? He had a list of people. He was going to kill. He said he wanted to. What was I am dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on the earth? I think plague would be most successful. But how do I acquire the needed Spanish flu botulism anthrax? Not sure yet. But we'll find something. I mean talk about a guy living in a phony universe. He was targeting hit a list of people to target, including Nancy Pelosi Alexandria, Casey. Oh, Cortes and Maxine Waters Senator Richard Blumenthal. And also some people at MSNBC. So the FBI we're let's see this guy, and they caught him and good for them. And this is like these people exists. There was that other shooter on the on the left to went after the Republicans at the softball game. These people are real, and they should they should remind us of something to not just other people. We don't have to just point fingers at other people pounce that you know, you can say, oh, well now the Democrats are going to pounce on this. Well, let him pounce on it. But that's not the point the point. Is it should remind us when guys are like this should remind us that we're not enemies. But friends remember ABRAHAM LINCOLN said that that this is politics. I hate the left's ideas, I think the left's ideas are destructive, but I talked about this before that evil people good people can have bad ideas, and bad ideas can result in evil. But that doesn't mean the people are evil in need to be shot at like this. This is politics. This is politics. We're fighting for the country. It's true. We're doing something important. It's true. But if we don't do it in the right way, you ruin all the good stuff that you doing if you cannot remember that we are not enemies. We're all Americans were all going to be in this together through through it, all, you know, in a perfect world, liberals and conservatives have something to say to each other because. Conservatives are trying to conserve the good things liberals are trying to change things that they think are not right. That's the way it's supposed to work is supposed to be a dialogue that pushes us forward. But in a way that is true to our traditions. The problem now is that we're arguing over those traditions themselves. But I'm gonna just finish by reminding. You of what Lincoln said remember Lincoln in his first inaugural stood up? And he knew the war was coming in at the end. It's heartbreaking speech because he says I am looked the clothes. I can't. I don't wanna close because he knows what he's done talking the the shootings going to start. And he says, we are not enemies. But friends, we must not be enemies, though, passion may have strained must not break. Our bonds of affection, the Mr. mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearth stone all over this broad land. Will yet swell the chorus of the union when again touched as surely they will be by the better angels of our nature. If you can't agree with Lincoln, stop paying attention to politics. If you can't agree with Lincoln that even our worst. Opponents are still friends in this country. If you can't agree with him. Stop start reading about gardening. Start reading about macro may start reading something else. Stopped reading about politics because it's not good for you. We are not enemies, but friends. Hey, we have an interview with Spencer Brown coming up. I've talked to him before really good guy from Young America's foundation, and we're going to stay on and talk to you. But let me remind you that the Cleveland weekend is coming up. So you wanna go on to daily wire dot com and subscribes you can go back and watch shows and read my articles. And also you want to go on to another kingdom, book dot com and preordered the book for lots of awesome, free stuff. Spencer Brown is the Young America's foundation spokesman he routinely travels to colleges and universities to manage some contentious situations that arise out of. Yes. Campus lecture program, like our guys going to speak and helps out the students around the country. He's also contributor for the hills against Spencer. You doing AM doing great, thanks for having me. It's a. Measure, you know, I've been talking today about the images of the world that people have in their imaginations and a lot of those images for people are formed in colleges where you guys do a lot of work sending people like Ben in me and Knowles to speak and sort of DeKalb Iraq the left, but you have done a study that may be one of the funniest studies. I've ever seen some funny in a tragic way of some of the classes that they are teaching people in colleges, and could you give me some of these run down some of the colleges that are coming out that some of these courses that are being taught in college. Yes. So you mentioned it's funny, but also not time. So the name of this report is actually comedy and tragedy as well. A lot of these titles are pretty laughable. It's actually very tragic that this is what's considered an education today at these supposedly elite universities and colleges. And so we went through basically, the top schools in the country, everything from the Ivy leagues to the top ten liberal arts school SEC the big ten and looked at what is in these sports cattle. Logs because a lot of times people don't scratch under the surface to see what the actual course. Content and is and so what we found yet again in this year's report is just leftist ideas left as talking points. The idea of intersection -ality continues to be used throughout. So it's basically just victim Olympics on a college campus, and how are your innate characteristic somehow make you more of a victim, and therefore your opinion, more important, and as we see in a lot of these courses, you've got classes about unsettling whiteness that talk about you know, we should be wary of whiteness as a cultural institution or social construct, and it's just, you know, if you're a white male, the odds are really against you on these college campuses because they're teaching the next generation that your ideas shouldn't matter you shouldn't be listened to. And you should get out of the way and let those who are less privileged have their day on campus. It's quite amazing. I mean, I have a hard time imagining what it is like going into a class on whiteness, something something which in large in a big way doesn't actually exist. Whiteness. I mean, everybody, we're we're also Matz in this country that the whole idea is ridiculous. And it is it's basically projecting the racism of white races on the black people making black people raise some of these classes, though, I mean, EKO queer feminist art practices. But the hell is. It's an excellent question. And that's where we get the comedy part of this. What does that even mean you're talking about? Apparently, you're taking the environmental side of it, but mixing it in with queer ideology, but also feminist ideology and then applying that all art. And again, it looks like if you read through there's more than two hundred and fifty courses in here. But if you read through that, and they took basically, what would have been a normal course, you know, thirty forty fifty years ago and just added some crazy leftist right before it. So whether it be religion courses that are about queering God now or economics courses that are about Mark's being relevant in the twenty first century and saying that we should try that in America. You know, we see the result of that. There's a lot of sort of new pressure towards trying out socialism in the United States so much though, the president has had to clarify. We will never be a socialist country. So I think you're seeing now a lot of what's happened in the past, you know, five ten years on college campuses, where it's just this leftist indoctrination and not a real education. And as you mentioned, you know, we bring you guys in to speak on these college campuses because without these Aflac Shire's students would never know that there's another way to think or another opportunity for them. To get ahead in the world. They're basically taught you know that they're victims. And that is not a very aspirational message. So when you guys come in and say, hey, you have personal responsibility. If you pull yourself up by the bootstraps at work hard and make smart choices not stupid ones. You can actually have the life that you want. But they're never taught that. You know, one of the things that you have understands that. I think a lot of conservatives do not is that they left is playing a long game. We have these issues and we get all upset and they introduced the green new deal. And we say, oh, this is the stupidest thing ever and everybody laughs at the green new deal and makes fun of the occasional Cortez's question thing. And it goes away. We think we've won we've shown the people would a stupid things. But these guys are now teaching new generation that the green new deal is what they need and that they need EKO queer feminist art, and they and it's long lasting longer. It's a longer view that we often have. Well, part of it is kind of as a vicious cycle. Where one of the courses in our sort of our list of the worst offenders, we call it. The dirty dozen. There's a course in there are about la- tink sexual dissidents in guerrilla translation, which again, what on earth does that even mean. But if you're taking if you're taking courses like that, the only job you're going to be able to get is as a leftist professor teaching probably a similar class in the future. And so it's just as vicious cycle where liberal professors beget liberal students who then become the liberal professors and administrators that we then come up against. So it's definitely as you mentioned a long game because they're really never gonna run out of these people who are willing to continue teaching these lot ideas. Even though they've been debunked a million times. And I think it's interesting you raised AFC because you know, people are looking at the green new deal, and everybody's kind of poking fun at it saying, it's kind of a rocky rollout. But I think what that actually shows is the damaging one of the damaging effects of this kind of leftist one-sided education, and that is was not it's not been that long since she was in school, and likely she learned all these same ideas, taking these courses. How capitalism has always and everywhere relied on racial. Politics in order to keep people down. And that's the only reason capitalism survived and all these other eco queer, feminist, whatever. And what you see is her rolling this out and making sort of a splash on the national stage is been rocky because I think she never had to defend these ideas on a college campus. She was taught one side. She'll never heard this side nobody ever asked her can you prove it can you justify this. She was never faced with back before she rolled it out on the national stage. And now you see people on the left speaker Pelosi leader Schumer are scrambling to try to be like, well, we'll take a breath. This is not what we actually mean. And I think it's because she just never had that intellectual training to have to defend stand up for her own ideas. Yeah. She's offended. I mean when you when you challenger you can see she's offended by the idea as she put it. Why would you challenge me on my facts when the important thing is my my beautiful pristine morality without understanding that you really can't have be moral. If you're not be more about the facts. I mean, that's what that's what makes is made out of. So you've sent you sent poor Knowles off to Notre Dame where there. Threatening protests. Right. I mean because this is this is the other part of it. It's not just it's not shaping imaginations is preventing imaginations from being shaped in ways, you don't want. So to have Knowles running around. Notre Dame's a dangerous prospect. I guess well, I'm guessing that the eco- queer feminist art practices courses didn't deal with the Notre Dame murals at Columbus murals at Notre Dame. But who knows what people with this is just just in case people don't know about the Columbus. Yes. So this happened. I guess probably it's been almost a month ago now where the school announced that because of outcry from some vocal minority they were going to hide these more than one hundred year old murals of Christopher Columbus on Notre Dame's campus that have been there, you know, basically since the beginning of the school and the murals were actually put up in the first place to push back on anti Catholic sentiment that was very prevalent at the time that Notre Dame was founded and started operating and now, of course, you've got the revisionist history. The left is dragging up anything that anybody ever said whether they're currently alive or dead in order to point out. How unwell they were back one hundred. Or so years ago, Columbus case, you know, centuries ago, and so the school chose instead of removing the murals, which are so part of this building they're just going to cover them with curtains. So that way they can present pictures of them elsewhere on campus in the proper context and setting because again, you know, you wouldn't want to offend someone with a picture of an explorer from the fourteen hundreds if I right? That's so so knows is going knows big Christopher Columbus fan. He was on the show talking about how great you. So what what are they planning to do? Are they going to torture them? I recommended they torture them. But like, what are they actually planning? Well, yeah. No. It's going to be another great campus lecture there at Notre Dame where he's gonna go directly into the center of this controversy just bring the facts once again, the left doesn't care about the facts about why these meals are historic. Why they were created in the first place or anything like that? All they care about is the feelings, and they feel that it's a moral wrong or moral injustice to people on their campus to have these apps. So he's obviously gonna come in and bring a facts, and I think again bring that other side because students on the campus if you look at any of the history classes in this year's comedy and tragedy report, it's all anti colonial anti everything that basically got this country started and then led to a growing and building and becoming the greatest country in the world. So I think, you know, this is going to provide a really important Orem for actual debate actual exchange of ideas that otherwise wouldn't happen on that campus, the leaders at the school basically said we decided because a couple of people complained that we're gonna shut this down. We of course. Right as a response to that issued our own petition and tripled the number of people who said they wanted to take him down with people saying, no, they should be left up its history. So the school is not even in touch with the majority of its students feelings on this. You know, it's I feel like they're abusing the kids because they deprive them of the actual view of the world, which is complex. I mean people like Gingas Kahn and Julius Caesar did terrible things, but they also spread culture, which we all benefit from. And you know, when you when you look step back for enough and look at them, you think, oh, well, actually, you know, that turned out. Well, although it might not have turned out well in the moment for the people who were conquered or killed, you know, that's that's complexity that's the gray world that we live in. But when you tell them that, oh, this is all evil, and especially if the color of his skin was white, you really depriving them of of the power of thought, you're depriving them of the power to reason. Well, yeah. And I think that just the ability to think critically about a situation, you know, using the Socratic method at all has been basically abandoned because instead of teaching, you know, these I would be fine with these wolves teaching courses on marks or the history of Cuba. If actually taught the real true full picture allowed students to make their own conclusions on the facts. Instead, they're only teaching on marks as these great ideas. That's what we need to do. We need a quality. But they never say. Okay. Well, here's what happened under marks. And here's what Marxism leads to. And then goal is of that. And instead with Cuba, you know, instead of teaching all the horrible things that human rights violations and everything else that happened under Castro. They just talk about how oh it's this. Nice little time capsule of the past. And it's all quaint beautiful Kardashians. Have been there. And it's like, no that is not the fact that is your version of the facts that you cherry picked in order to push this leftist ideology. Instead tell the whole picture and let students use the brains that they're at college hopefully to grow well Spencer Brown from Young America's foundation. You guys are doing a great job. You really are. Doing something very necessary. I hope I hope it meant you make some headway. Thanks for coming on. We'll talk to you again. Absolutely. Thank you. Thanks. So a final reflection. We asked to about a week ago. I had been having this conversation with some guys, and we were all sort of saying just in bafflement not trying to control anybody. But just in bafflement we were saying that so many young women seem to be committed to jobs and wasting the time that they could be creating a home having children taking care of those children. Instead doing the kind of drudgery of work that guys have had to do to support what we thought was important work of making a home and and having children. So I asked him a we are we just being guys don't understand women to write in. And we got a lot a lot of letters all of the ones we haven't been able to go through all of them. But all of the ones we saw agreed with me. Now, obviously people who were listening to the show or probably more likely to agree. But let me just read you a couple of things that people said, which I thought were really interesting this one is from Hannah, she says, I think most women would like to have kids and focus on them won't be able to do. Volunteer work or to chase Pash. In projects as their lives permit after almost of choose career paths that allow us to do what we're passionate about as opposed to men who often set passionate side in order to make more money two. Things are getting in our way, not just the shame. That feminists suggest stay at home mom should feel for depending on another person for income. But the real which is crap by the way, because it's the income is both of yours because you're both involved in the project, but the real fear that a lot that was me interjecting, but the real fear that a lot of girls have from seen their own families fall apart is kids many feel that they need to keep at least one foot in the career pool. Just in case something doesn't work out in the relationships department. That's very smart. Also, she says all of our finances are a mess. The idea that every person has to go to college has negatively impacted myself, and my girlfriend's college debt has so financially stabilized us as well as the men were looking at marrying than staying at home just isn't an option. This one's from anonymous really got me on twenty seven years old. And as long as I can remember all. Ever wanted was to settle down and be a wife and mother for the most part I've kept this to myself. I've been embarrassed to admit such a lowly ambition out loud. You know, when you think about being a mom is a lowly ambition s people what they think about their mother better yet, go up to someone who's bigger than salt, his mother and find out how he feels about his mom. People your mom is basically the center of your universe because she's the person who shaped your life, and I don't see how that that is a lowly ambition at all she says I've had little luck in the dating game. It's difficult to meet a man who wants to settle down when he can order a one night stand as fast as he could have pizza women are so replaceable for everyone that doesn't put out this ten more ready to jump into bed. Thank you sexual revolution from Nicole, both from my own experience, and from talking to my friends, I've gathered that most women. No, they're missing out on having a family in their twenties and thirties, but don't know what to do about it, my friend, and I desire a husband and children. But the men we have dated met over the past few years with so disappointing and unimpressive that we'd rather be single and childless while we search for someone else. To give you context, my friends, and I are engineers and lawyers with advanced degrees in their late twenties. It could be because I hang around a conservative religious crowd. But it seems to me that this discussion is often around an observation of women pursuing careers and not having families not that most women desire it, but they find it hard to achieve the families. They want from Cheryl I'm approaching fifty and after examining my own life college educated, married. No children. I've reached this conclusion think twice before rejecting the enduring and self sacrificing purposes of your biology for the transitory and self satisfying purposes of your ideology, you know, this is like I said, this is not scientific people who listened to the show are probably more sympathetic to the show, and you know, reflect some of my own way of looking at the world, but it is true that when they examine what women want, and they pull them first of all a majority of moms want to be home with their kids would prefer to be home with their kids, the less of women who aren't moms. But that just means that having. Children is more satisfying and fulfilling in fact, than it is in theory, when you imagine it it may not be fulfilling as when you have it what they have found is there's this U-shaped curve that poor poor women and rich women are the most likely to stay home with their kids. And there's an economic reason for that. Because when when you're people tend to marry people in their own clash and financial state, so poor people tend to marry poor men and to marry poor women, and that means that to put the kid in daycare is probably going to be more expensive than the money that the mother would make going out to work. So it makes economic sense for her to stay home at the then once you get into the middle class middle class men, marry middleclass women, and the woman is probably college educated probably making a lot of money the money that she would lose by leaving the workforce is more than the money that they would have to spend on on daycare. So it makes more economic sense. For them to have daycare. Once they get rich. However wants the man is rich then the woman stays home because she can because they can afford to lose that middle class income. So that says to me that if everybody had what they wanted that women would be staying home in the thing about that. Is that just means and every study shows this just means the left is talking for people, but they're not talking about people. They're talking about what they think people should want. They're not talking about what people really should want. And the shame is is that they infest your imagination. It goes back to this. Again, it goes back to their trying to shape the way you imagine the world. So that you feel obligated to their concerns instead of to your concerns. They want you to feel oh, it's a lowly position to be a wife and mother. Oh, that's not enough. I want to work on the marriage might fall apart me jobs can fall apart. Do you know the marriage may fall apart all those things they want to shape your imagination that way? So your so the world then looks more like what they wanted to look like, and that's going to ultimately because their their philosophy. Makes people dependent is going to ultimately make him dependent on them. And then you can't change the world back to the way it ought to be back to freedom. Liberty people making the decisions out of their own hearts and their own imaginations rather than the imagination of activists. That's it the Cleveland last weekend is upon us. You poor bums.

Ep. 590 - Trump Finally Apologizes for Something: Democrats!
The New York Times a former newspaper Senate cracked reporter to discover what on earth is wrong with our country. And it turns out it's white women, no right. Who'd have guessed you might have thought our biggest problem was unemployment, but Donald Trump fix that or ISIS, but Donald Trump fix that were unconstitutional. Looney tunes taking charge of our government and replacing the structures meant to protect our liberty with racist left wing, diktats, guaranteed to plunge us all into oppression and poverty, but Donald Trump fix that too. So what's left? Yes. It's those white girls. Alexis Grenell has studied these exotic creatures carefully by actually being one of them for many years, and she writes, quote, at my hand to God, I'm not making this quote up after a confirmation process where women, all but slit their wrists, letting their stories of sexual trauma run, like rivers of blood through the capitol. The Senate still voted to confirm judge Brehme Cavanaugh to the supreme court. The women who voted for him are gender traders were talking. White women, the same fifty, three percent who put their racial privilege ahead of their second class gender status in two thousand sixteen by voting to uphold a system that values only their whiteness on quote I could go on. But that would be like allowing the times to write my hilarious satire for me which would be wrong. But darn it. They're so funny, I just can't help it. You're some more in which sweet little Alexis tells us how she felt about Senator. Susan Collins. Speech is supportive cavenaugh. She writes, quote, Senator Collins subjected us to a slow funeral dirge about due process and some other nonsense. I couldn't even hear through my rage headache. That's right. Alexis has a headache. So we have to get rid of due process a Alexis. How about preserving American freedoms by holding the constitution, not tonight, dear. I have a headache because she has a point about white women. Some of those days are just plain nuts trigger warning. I'm Andrew klavan. This is the Andrew klavan show. Also saying. Got the Thompson. Zippy's. I'm here in beautiful, sincerely, beautiful Madison, Wisconsin. I haven't been here for about one hundred years. This is one of the prettiest towns I have ever seen.

It's k. l. a. v. a. n. now I have to, you know, is very rare. We have to come in here and correct the mistakes, but this is a big mistake yesterday. We talked about the cabinet nomination and. His confirmation and we forgot the play. The Trump happiness montage, people have been fired. Entire departments have been cleared out to correct this incredible mistake. But here finally, after all, this blood has been spilled and heads of role here is the Trump happiness montage well-deserved. We're going to win so much. We're going to win at every level. Gonna win, economically. We're gonna win with the economy. We're gonna win with military. We're gonna win with healthcare for veterans. We're going to win with every single facet. Zip, the all mom, what a wonderful day win so much. You may even get tired of winning. Say, please please. It's too much winning. We can't take it anymore. I feel. Eighteen. You have to keep winning. We have to win a win. Then a win. Boy, oh, boy, was I ever deserved? I mean, what a week? A couple of weeks Trump has had with the economy booming and the of course cavenaugh getting confirmed and the read negotiated NAFTA deal. He has been just incredibly roll. Did have some bad news this morning. Nikki Haley has resigned from the United Nations. Apparently she has been planning to do this. They say that some of some of his aides were taken aback, but it may be John Bolton was taken back, but I don't know, Trump obviously knew about it and it's said that she has been planning this for a long time. She was going to serve for two years. Maybe take a break, maybe come back. She is a genuine law. She has been courageous, graceful, smart on point. It's going to be a really tough to replace her and and I won't be able to do my cheap SM jokes about watching a beautiful woman slap around the Russians of as as my form of SM porn felt kind of bad about those jokes and was making cheap sex jokes about a beautiful accomplished. The woman like Nikki Haley, but that never stopped me. Maybe it's because I'm like a sleazy guy. I'm not sure. Yeah, that's it. No, gee, she was talking well, let's listen to what she said in her in her resignation has been an honorable lifetime. I, you know, I said, I am such a lucky girl through have been able to lead the state that raised me and to serve a country. I loved. So very much has really been a blessing and I want to thank you for that, but I'm most excited. We'll get the two years. Look at what has happened in two years with the United States on foreign policy. Now, the United States is respected countries may not like what we do with they respect what we do. They know that if we say we're going to do something, we follow it through in the president proved that whether it was with the chemical weapons in Syria, whether it's with NATO saying that other countries have to pay their share. I mean, whether it's the trade deals, which have been amazing, they get that the president means business and they follow through with that. Gene. That's why she's been so amazing. She has been able to have this kind of graceless kind of force in the kind of power, but also get along with president Donald, which is not always easy for people. She was touting Jared, Kushner, saying what a genius he is behind the scenes. He may get the the appointment. Maybe Bolton bulletin would be fun. Just watching the confirmation hearings says, if you remember during the George W Bush administration, they wouldn't confirm him because they thought he was just too mean to deal with nice people at the UN. But that would be that would go beyond watching John Bolton at the UN would be beyond SEM porn. That would be more like watching roadhouse every day, but that would be terrific. Anyway, is a real loss. I hope she finds a play. She hasn't talked about what she was going on that people were speculating which run against Trump, but she says she won't do that. Of course, she's not going to do that. They were talking what were they talking about a Pence Haley ticket, but that's not going to happen. Trump says, he's going to run again. So it is just have to wait and see. It's just it's just a loss on the other side. However, you know, one of the. One of the big tactics of the left of course, is facing forcing people to apologize for things that they don't have to apologize for. So you've come out, you speak a fact, and you say, oh, well, you know, why should we trust all women? Women lie just as much as men. That's a fact right. And the left goes nuts and they start screaming at you when they believe in, they hit you on Twitter and they hit you on Facebook and your boss comes to you and says, you're hurting our business. We may have to let you go to. Finally you beaten and bloody. You go on and you apologize for something that you said there was absolutely true, totally true. Which apologized for some thought crime like I was insensitive. I was insensitive. And then you know, you think like, oh, well, now have apologize, so they'll forgive me right? They'll back off, no, no, no. My friend that is just like bleeding in the water that has blood in the water to a leftist. They just come in and they devour you because the message they want to send his j only what we let you say. That's the message they want to say. So they always get so angry Trump is Trump never apologizes. He never apologize. He never even when he says something that may. You know, he may even regret. We regret that. He said, it doesn't apologize. Never does. Finally yesterday at the confirmation of bread cavenaugh he apologized. He apologized for the Democrats that great moment cut number one, I would like to begin tonight's proceeding differently than perhaps any other event of such magnitude on behalf of our nation. I want to apologize to Brett and the entire cavenaugh family for the terrible pain and suffering. You have been forced to endure. Those who stepped forward to serve our country deserve a fair and dignified evaluation. Not a campaign of political and personal destruction based on lies and deception. What happened to the cavenaugh family violates every notion of fairness, decency and due process our country, a man or a woman must always be presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. It was absolutely right to say it was absolutely deserved. The apology was right to save quit. The left went nuts on, get to that in just a minute. But first, let me tell you about a new podcast from wondering when regret podcasts really helped us with the first season of another kingdom. But this one is a really interesting podcast about the all the legal cases that nobody pays attention to their hundreds of thousands of legal cases in litigation every day in the US court system, and most of them don't reach the media's attention. These are not those cases. These are the cases that have riveted the nation and made a real world impact on society. In the podcast from one legal wars host hill Harper gives you behind the scenes access to some of the most famous cases to have ever graced America's courtrooms you'll hear about the influential cases, the provoked worldwide attention. Rodney King trial and Nicole Smith's battle for an inheritance and the take down of gossip site Gawker go, listen to legal wars on apple podcast. The first episode is about the hulk, HOGAN vs Gawker media case. Hawker HOGAN walked out of the courtroom with a multi million dollar settlement that very cases become a symbol of press freedom. You can finally awards on apple podcasts wherever you're listening to this or head over to one degree dot FM slash klavan. That's w. o. n. d. e. r. y. dot f. m. slash klavan it's a great show and you're gonna have fun listening to it and you'll learn how to spell Clayton k. l. a. v. a. n. so you've got to listen to, you know there there should be. There should be a word. There's new word to describe someone who is absolutely completely unselfish aware, but that describes the left and especially the leftist press. Here's MSNBC watching the confirmation of Brad Kavanagh in the leftist going. Absolutely insane coming in now to join in the celebration. They look very happy. Gene. Wall the wall happiness. Everyone should pay attention to this business is what power looks like. That's just what powerless I- Republicans had the power to do this and they did it. This is a terrible moment. I think for the country. One thing is clear. This president is only seeking to divide this country. There are people in the heart cruel. I think that's the right for it right there, enjoying making fun of this professional woman who says she was sexually assaulted. Let's make fun of her to these people Trump. They like to kind of bloodlust as the liberal or the progressive side going to speak loudly and blow the trumpet when when well, I'm staying Wednesday, six. When are you going to go to note makeup start the the fight. There's nobody out there. Where's Pelosi were Schumer where's everybody? They shouldn't be taking the day off. I love it. I just the fact that they're happy is an insult to them. And why? Why is this? Is the problem with the left. He's just nails at the problem with the left is they're not making enough noise. They're not screaming at people there in the streets of Portland, antique falls in the streets of Portland, directing traffic as if they had some legal authority and chasing down anyone who doesn't obey them in the police, don't even do anything about. That's the problem with the left. They're just too in control. They're just not shrill enough. They're not crazy enough. They're not violent and nasty enough. That is the problem with the left. How have we missed it up till now? It's unbelievable. They would just be a little bit louder a little bit. Meaner us really get down in the gutter. The problem is they're not. They're not accusing people of sexual molestation enough. You know they're, they're just being too nice to everybody. That is the problem. That is why the left keeps losing and take it from Hillary Clinton, Hillary and Bill Clinton are going on a speaking tour because that's what the country needs today. What the country needs today is. Bill and Hillary Clinton lock up your daughters because if you wanna see with sexual attacks, look like they're coming back Bill and Hillary Clinton, and here's Hillary talking about how we can make amends and bring this country together by treating the right with more civility. You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. That's why I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the house and the Senate, that's when civility can start again. But until then the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength. And you heard how the Republican members led by Mitch McConnell, the president really demeaned the confirmation process. Until we win. We can't be civil until we win. We have to keep on with the screaming in the it would never. It just never the lightbulb never goes on. Maybe this is why they're not winning. Maybe this is why the country working better when they're out of power. Maybe this is why they should start to respect the democratic process. I mean, if you got people now Alexandria, Google Cortez, you've got her talking about how we should get rid of the electoral college because it's a relic of slavery days. The electoral college had nothing to do with slavery, but what they don't want and they say this openly now, you know, because when they lose the problem is the country when they lose the problem is we have to get rid of the Senate, the senate's not fair because they're just as much representation from Dakota, North Dakota as there is from New York, how can that possibly be fair? Because that is the whole point of the electoral college and the Senate is that the states get full representation. If you have the in the in the congress, obviously it's different. But in the Senate, you have full representation for each statement. They don't like that. Why? Because they lost if they didn't lose than it would all be fine. So we have to get rid of the entire American system. The should be a word for completely clueless. You know, SE comp was talking to Brian Stelter and she she, she talks about all the ways that the press was biased during the cavenaugh fight and listen to filter response. Not that because just to name a few examples, the Washington Post published an op Ed written by quote Kavanagh's extreme can buddies who believe you shouldn't have been confirmed. New York Times published a story about that. That includes a cavenaugh being involved in a bar fight thirty three years ago during which she threw ice on someone USA today ran a column legend. Cavanaugh was a child predator. I mean, that seems kind of like an effort. There was also some sloppiness on some of these stories, and that's a sample reporting, the New York Times omitted. They shouldn't have had an opinion writer go out and work on the story at Yale. You know, there were some emissions about that. There was some sloppiness as well. However, I do think a lot of journals were trying to figure out what really happened because heck the Senate really wasn't an f. b. I really wasn't able to go out and figure out the facts did play key role, but I can understand why a lot of Americans, it felt like the media was aligned against Cavanaugh. And by the way, I just want to say Christine, Bazi Ford was right. She predicted all of this. I remember she didn't want to speak out publicly saying she called the Washington Post, but she stayed off the record. She didn't want to be named. And then in August, she said, no, I definitely don't want to tell my story. She said, look, Kavanagh's is gonna get confirmed. She said, quote, why suffer through the annihilation? If it's not going to matter in it didn't. Clueless clueless. I mean, win, win the press. Ever go out and try and get information that exposed Christine, blazey Ford. They went out and got every time you know, cavenaugh scuffed his shoe. If he threw ice at somebody if he said something about drinking, if he drank all of that stuff came out, but nothing about Christine blazing for it. It was of course it was buys. The was one of the worst machine full episodes, impress history, and that is saying a lot. And one of the reasons the press you know comes up is because the pre everybody in America wants to be a hero. And there are very few heroes in America because very few people are under the gun. This is a free country. So they have to tell you all my gosh, you know everybody's Hitler. And that makes you a hero because you're standing up the Hitler instead of making a lot of noise about a duly elected official, who's doing a good job that makes you a hero. If you say, oh, women, women are so oppressed women or not oppressed in this country. Women are utterly free. But if you say they're oppressed, then your hero, how brave you were, how brave you were to come forward. You know, they just love to hear that and they let one of the things about the press. They like to pretend that they are in a country that oppresses them. If Donald Trump attacks them, if he says you're, you're lying or bias, which they are. They feel like, oh my gosh, it Stalin has become again, but just as a reminder that there are reporters in this world who are really quite quite brave, there is a story out of is out of Turkey, but it's about a Saudi reporter, Saudi journalists, Jamal kashogi, and this is a genuine. It's a mystery, but it's one of those mysteries. I think we all know the answer to. He's been a real critic of the new crown prince Mohammad bin Salman who is essentially now the leader of the country, and Solomon came in and he was supposed to be a big deal because he was going to let women drive. He was going to have all these social reforms, but his social reforms have come along with the political crackdown and he's been putting people away and kashogi has been. He's been in America, I believe, criticizing him from far and the Saudis have really gone out of their way to show you that they can reach out. From Saudi Arabia and they can get you. There was a woman who was driving in the the United Arab Emirates. When she was pulled over by security officers, thrown on a plane, sent back to Saudi Arabia and jailed in Canada. A Saudi student refused to stop making YouTube videos, criticizing the kingdom's rulers, and two of his brothers back home were imprisoned. They want you to know they can reach you. So this guy kashogi is in Turkey. He was getting some papers to let him marry a woman, a Turkish woman. He was in Istanbul, and he went into the Saudi consulate there and left his girlfriend outside is fancy outside Saint. If I don't come out in a couple of hours. You should call you should call the police. And basically he never came out. He never came out of the consulate. The Turks who are no amateurs at suppressing the press and suppressing dissent themselves, or accusing the Saudis of of killing him of cutting them into pieces and shipping his body out of the consulate. They say, people flew into the country hitman flew into the country and killed them, which of course, you know, to kill somebody on on a prominent dissenter on somebody else's soil is bad news. That's the kind of thing. Putin does. Trump is talking about a Trump doesn't like it. Here's Trump commenting on. Concerned about it. I don't like hearing about it and hopefully that will sort itself out right now. Nobody knows anything about it, but there's a pretty bad stores go around. I do not like it. Thank you. You know, I don't blame. We've been trying to be friends with the Saudis because they've been it kind of tacitly accepted Israel because Israel is there what they're really afraid of is ran. So Saudi is tacitly accepting Israel. So Jared Kushner's been over there trying to, you know, use them to broker some peace in the Middle East. We don't wanna lose friends with them, but the same time we can't let them go around killing people like this, and it just points out that there are hero. Journalists are people who are standing up against the Prussian Brian Stelter and his ilk CNN NBC ABC CBS are just a pack of liars and they're not heroes in when they get criticized. Maybe they should start to look at themselves because if there were a word of than clueless for someone who has no self awareness, it would certainly describe the main stream media. All right.

So max boot is a huge never-trumper and a lot of you of right into me and say, why didn't you say this? Why didn't you say that? Why did you just let him say these things? I told him that I disagreed with virtually everything that he said he is still a never-trumper which seems to be at this point absurd, Donald Trump, no matter what you feel about him, no matter how violates your sensibilities is doing a terrific job. I think he is on the verge of becoming Egypt humanly great president, which amazing thing. Nothing I would have expected. Everything I didn't expect. Boots has stand, stood his ground. He's a guest on my show. I tr- I treated him like a guest. I let him because speak his mind. You know what? I think. You know how I feel you get to hear me all the time, but it's worth listening to. I actually learned a lot of the never Trump mindset. He is the author of a new book, the corrosion of conservatism, why I left the right. He's a senior fellow at the council on foreign relations accounts for the Washington Post and a global fares analyst for CNN find out how. Trumpers remain. Never Trump listen to max boop. Max mood. Thank you so much for coming on. I appreciate it. Knowing the corrosion of conservatism, why I left the right, very impassioned a book. I see things very differently. So I really want to hear your point of view and how you got to where you are. Let's start with why you became a conservative in the first place. Those kind of a natural thing for me to become because I was an immigrant from the Soviet Union. So like a lot of other people fleeing communist countries, I was naturally drawn to the most conservative anti-communist movement in the United States, which was, of course the Republican party and then growing up in the nineteen eighties under Ronald Reagan, you know, he may conservatism cool. He was the con- conservative that I admired and wanted to become optimistic, forward-looking inclusive. He kind of typified conservatives for me along with other heroes of mine going up folks like William Buckley and George will, and that was how I became a conservative in why I wound up writing a conservative column at the university of California at Berkeley for the student newspaper there in the late eighties, early nineties and went on to work at the Wall Street Journal, editorial page, right for commentary serve as a foreign policy adviser for three Republican. Presidential candidate. So I've been, you know, part of the conservative movement pretty much my whole life that those are very impressive conservative credentials in anybody writes, I, I went to Berkeley too few years before you anyone who writes a conservative column for that paper. It's a brave man. Now, obviously, it's Donald Trump that has has turned you away from this philosophy that made you feel that you are an outsider to conservatism. Is that fair? I think that's that's definitely fair. I mean, when you know Donald Trump came on the scene, I started running for president in the summer of twenty fifteen. I did not know a single conservative who had anything positive to say about him. Pretty much everybody on the right thought. He was clueless, clan this buffoon who did not deserve to be president of the United States. And so it's pretty shocking to me to see that now the the Republican party has embraced him and a lot of conservatives who once had nothing. Thing bad to say about who wants that. Nothing good to say about Donald Trump now have nothing bad to say about at least in public. I mean, it's been startling turnaround even though I think a lot of the original criticisms that that people like many others about his unfitness for the presidency have been amply borne out it. Can you give me more specific about that? How I I mean, I just just put myself in position where I'm clear about where I stand. I, I had all the same feelings about Donald Trump. I gave him a clean slate when he was elected. I didn't see any other choice and I did vote for him a as opposed to Hillary. I have not seen what you just described. Can you be specific about what you've seen? It makes you feel the worst fears about him have been born out? Well, it's a daily litany of outrageous. I mean, this is somebody who says that he is in love with Kim Jong UN, who is one of the most vicious dictators on the planet. Somebody who lies an average of a roughly eight times a day. Somebody who attacks the FBI is a cancer on in our country who tries to beaten impede and obstruct the investigation of Russian interference in our election, which helped him to get elected. Of course, somebody who I think really caters to the most dangerous sentiments in our country, such as racism and native ISM calling African countries, countries saying that the Charlottesville protestors DNS's there. They were good people on both sides. He, you know. Referring to Latino immigrants as animals who breed infest our cities a locking up children of illegal immigrants. You know, paying off a a porn star according to his own attorney pleaded guilty to eight felonies. Donald Trump is implicated in a conspiracy to violate federal campaign laws. Of course, Michael cone is one of only many people around Trump who has been in snared in the in the criminal Justice system, including his former campaign manager. Paul Manafort has deputy campaign manager. Red gates is former national security advisor, Mike Flynn. Now imagine what concerned was Republicans would be saying if this were president, Hillary Clinton, and so many of her senior officials have pleaded guilty to felonies and that even implicated the president in this kind of behavior and the president were daily attacking. The FBI and the Justice department Republicans would be in an uproar and rightly so. But they give Donald Trump a pass. And in many cases, people like Devin. Nunes are actually actively working with him to obstruct Justice into undermine the FBI and the Justice department ways that I think are are unfortunately. Now, all that said, I mean, I will. I will grant you, I think from if you're looking at it from a conservative perspective. I mean, Donald Trump has done a few good things, and I think any Republican president would have cut taxes, what have appointed supreme court justices. But my argument is that you are paying way too high a price for a handful of conservative achievements. You're having a swallow an awful lot of rancid garbage. Okay. I have a lot of disagreements with that, but fair enough. Let me let me start this way when Donald Trump swept away. I can't remember it was sixteen or seventeen other candidates who are very highly qualified people. A lot of them. In that indicate in some at some way that the Republican party had lost touch with the people who supposed to represent me in the fact that it was so easy for him to do that did not indicate anything that there was a problem with conservatism and the Republican party. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, I think that mainstream conservatism in the mainstream of the Republican party had been losing credibility for years, including because of the war in Iraq, which I supported, including because of the great recession of two thousand seven, two thousand eight, or I actually think that President Bush in President. Obama did the right thing to to help us escape that that disaster. But obviously, a lot of Republicans were very embittered by the fact that their leadership supported this finance bailout. So I think you know, they're, they're certainly mistakes by the mainstream leadership of the party. And I think there's also been a growing populist revolt. Typify people like Sarah Palin, and this was what Fox News was catering to. This was the. Sentiment that that the, that the tea party was channeling. So you know, I don't doubt that Donald Trump tapped into something genuine in in the Republican party and unconservative them. But unfortunately, I think a lot of what he tapped into is is very dangerous and indeed repulsive because I think what he is showing that there is a constituency for bashing immigrants for appealing to white nationalism for indulging in conspiracy theories and know nothing sentiments. I mean, I think these these trends were always there on the right, even though I chose not to see them in the past. But what in the past, I would say they were not the dominant trend in the Republican party or the conservative movement. They were present, but they were not dominant and under Trump. I think those Dr tendencies are in fact on. You know, when the reason the reason I voted for Donald Trump is there is a two party system they're only they're only will were to viable candidates. The other one has a history of criminality history of struck injustice that. Party itself has become radicalized to the point of of embracing socialism, something you should know something about, and and it seems that when you have a choice between two parties, one of them is going to get in. When you say in your book that you think conservative, the Republican party really needs to a lose for a long time. Aren't you saying that the socialist party that is willing to do for instance, what it's doing to Brad Kavanagh should now be in control. I admit that the that the that the alternatives before us are unpalatable because I, what I see is that the Republican party is marching far to the right into white nationalism and populism and the Democratic Party is marching far to the left and I, it's leaving people like me stranded in the middle of centrally homeless politically because there is no party that represents my view, which is kind of moderate centrist conservatism. But you know, and I can. I can understand where you're coming from, but I made a different choice in two thousand sixteen for the very first time in my life. Literally the first time in my life, I voted for a democrat and Hillary Clinton because even though I didn't agree with one hundred percent, I thought she was qualified for the presidency. I thought she was knowledgeable and I thought she was actually a pretty centrist mainstream democrat so much. So by the way that the Bernie Sanders left and like her because she wasn't, you know, extreme enough for them. And you said that she has a proven history of criminally. I mean, I disagree with that. I mean, there's no. Question the twins, cut a lot about the goal corners and that that caused me a lot of problems. And you know, I was certainly very hard on on dog Lynton during his impeachment proceedings. But you know, if you look at at at criminality I don't see how you can vote for Donald Trump because again, this is a president who has literally been implicated in the commission of two federal crimes by his very own attorney, and who has who staff was riddled with people who are now convicted felons who himself is cut at the corners, his entire life and shows no sign of having any moral compass. So I admit that the choices between us we're not great, and that's why a lot of my conservative friends voted for third party candidates, but you're right, I think ultimately, it's, you got to choose one or the other. And I, you know, I chose Hillary Clinton. I don't regret doing so because in many ways, Donald Trump has been just as bad as I feared that he would be, you know. That's that's another part. I do find that puzzling because we had eight years of a president who abused the IRS to silence political opposition. It really does look to me that he abused the department of Justice in the FBI to spy on opposition political campaign. I, he certainly used the State Department to lie about his failings and Benghazi. Donald Trump does not seem to me to have actually despite his many, many, many personal flaws. He does not seem to me to have transgressed the boundaries of constitutional governance. I cannot think of a way in which he is spied on people or suppressed people or silence people, you know, the press complaints that he calls the names and he does, but he hasn't silence anybody the way Obama tapped phones and and really did come down hard on anybody who leaked to the press. Is there some kind of divide between the stuff that comes out of Trump's now, which I agree can be agreed and the things he's done, which don't seem to me that bad. I think the things that he's done are pretty bad, but I let me just correct the record, and it's just not the case that President Obama had this horrible scandal. Plagued administration actually like embarrassing with other administrations. It was pretty squeaky clean. He certainly did not have as national security adviser or his campaign manager pleading guilty to felonies. Okay. So in the notion that that rock Obama spied on an opposing political campaign, that's just the conspiracy theory that Donald Trump is spread without any support whatsoever. He claimed that Obama tapped my my lines in Trump Tower and his and Trump's on Justice department. So that's that's not the case. In fact, there wasn't ongoing investigation of the Russian attack on American democracy in two thousand sixteen in which people in the Trump campaign replicated, and the FBI was investigating that rightly so they were actually being not nearly as aggressive as they should have been in President. Obama didn't do nearly enough to call out. Russian assault because he didn't want to be accused of interfering in the political process. So you know, I, I would say, and I say this as somebody who voted twice against Barack Obama who worked for John McCain amid Romney, but and I disagree very strenuously with his policies. But I think unethical level Barack Obama is an ethical person. I think he's a good person who's trying to do the right thing. I disagree with his policy judgment in many instances, and I thought many was policies were disastrous, but I, I didn't have any serious questions about his. Thanks. Whereas Donald Trump is unethical cesspool and he is doing he has done things. I mean, we have never seen the kind of blatant obstruction of Justice that he is committing in plain sight. He is doing before a very is a kind of things that Richard Nixon did only in private and the way only found out about later. I mean, Donald Trump constantly denigrates and runs down the FBI. He fired the director of the FBI James Comey as he admitted to stop the investigation of this Russia thing. I mean, I can't imagine a more. Clearcut evidence of a president committing obstruction of Justice. He doesn't on a daily basis. I mean, he attacks Jeff Sessions. He attacks the FBI. He attacks rod Rosenstein, all of whom are simply trying to do their jobs. I mean, he's irate for example, that sessions recused themselves from the Russian vesting, but that's the only ethical course he could have possibly taken and I don't agree with sessions on a lot of things, but he was right here and he's being attacked by Donald Trump essentially for not doing more to politicize the Justice department when it comes to freedom of the press. I mean, he constantly calls the press the enemy of the American people, which is the kind of rhetoric previously used only by the likes of Hitler and Stalin, and he asked to back it up. For example, he tried to get the postmaster general to raise shipping rates for Amazon because he's irate that Amazon owns the law, Shannon, post, rhyme, McCollum est, and the Washington Post runs items critical of him. So he's trying to punish a news organization that is critical of him. Now it sir. Only the case that he has not had as much success in suppressing speech, obstructing Justice as he would like to see because there has been pushed back from his own appointees. There has been pushed back from the courts. We do have robust checks and balances within the American system. And so you know, Donald Trump, you know, cannot give full vent to his other attorney tendencies, but the tendencies are there. He is trying to obstruct this and he is, I believe, supporting our democracy in in a way that Barack Obama and did not do in really no previous president with the possible exception of Richard Nixon while I is really it is interesting how honest men can see things very differently. I see it very differently than you do, but I preach it. You're letting me know I'm out of time. So I just ask you one. When last question you have a blurb on here from Bill Kristol and it has seemed to me that people who have who have your strong feelings about Donald Trump have some in some instances lost the plot of of the America. We're all I think hoping. To protect. For instance, when Bill Kristol said better the deep state than the Trump state, I just thought maybe is that not overreacting to the presence of Donald Trump? I mean to have a deep state, a an administrative state, it basically overrides the will of the people. The constitution isn't that worse than having a loud mouth present. Light, I dislike this term. The deep state. Donald Trump is introduced into our politics, which was previously used in places like Egypt and Turkey to refer to author a -tarian tendencies among their militaries to base of Vert the role. The people not is not what is going on here. And there is a quote on deep, stay conspiracy against Donald Trump. Would you seek are dedicated civil servants and political appointees doing their best uphold the road. So the constitution and doing their best to try to protect America from a president with a believe Nygard is reckless and unfit to exercise the office, and they're basically trying to constrain has most destructive impulses into Carrie an into enforce the law into and to carry out good policy as best lacy fed. I, I think what they're trying to do is a heroic if not entirely successful effort to insulate America from Donald Trump and and not give Venter's worst impulses. And so I think they're actually helping only America, but. Donald Trump because Donald Trump could do everything that he wanted to do. He would be in even deeper trouble than he is his approval ratings are are low enough. Now, there would be even lower if he if he was able to carry out every crazy crackpot notion that flits into his head next smooth. The author of the corrosion of conservatism. Why left the right? I can only hope that I'm right and you're wrong, but it's been very interesting talking to thanks so much for me on I. I mean, I know you disagree, but I really appreciate the civilized conversation. I think that's the only way we move forward as by by discussing these things in a in an intelligent and civilized manner, and you're doing that, so I appreciate it. I agree with you one hundred percent. Thank you very much for saying that Kishan. Thanks. That is the thing I would more left this would come on, but they won't. But it was really interesting to me. I mean, I thought, you know, obviously conflicting immigrants with illegal immigrants and the stuff about Hillary Clinton and Brock Obama. You know that I, I don't see how you can think that I do not see how you cannot think that Hillary Clinton is a criminal. You should read Ken Starr's book about the Clintons. All right, but I was glad to hear from sexual follies. So during this whole thing, with the the cavenaugh hearing, as they were, you'll leveling these charge after charge trying to bolster these charges. The woman who worked with Ronan Farrow at the New Yorker basically said they were printing these things without really checking them because they wanted to bolster the charges of Christine Blasi Ford. But actually, I think that backfired. But Trump said this about young men at this point. I'd say that it's a very scary time for young men in America. When you can be guilty of something that you may not be guilty of it, which is a very, very, is a very difficult time. What's happening here has much more to do that. Even the appointment of is free for Justice. It really does. You can be somebody that was perfect your entire life, and somebody could accused you of something doesn't necessarily have to be a woman as everybody's, but somebody could accuse you of something and your auto Mattingly guilty. But in this realm, you are truly guilty until proven innocent. That's one of the very, very bad things as plays right. Then. So this woman I and I'm sorry, I could not find her name, but she put out the securical song about this about how? Oh yes, men have. It's so tough, and it's such a scary time for men. Here's the song. I can't car late at night phone. I can't help it up. I can't go to. When I can't live, daddy, skirted did the. The. I can't use the transportation after. Again, be Buddha, the honest when you cited. I can't go just the dancing, my bands and I can't have my gun. Together makes really tough. Turn up any. Time for guys can't speak to. Confuses represent. Just the United means that you have to try. A lot of people on the right attack the song saying, oh, you know, you live in a free country. You can do any one of these things, but I don't think that's quite fair. She's talking about the fact that women have to be more careful than men in a lot of situations that just the ordinary life of a woman is a life lived on guard to some degree. And you know, I have total sympathy with that. What the problem with that is, the problem with it is not that it's the cheese blaming and the left is blaming men. How would it be? If knowing that I walked through a black neighborhood, a bad black neighborhood. I know I'm more likely to get mugged and get mugged in that neighborhood. And then I say, well, the show shows you something about black people mill, it shows you something about that neighborhood and about the culture of that neighbor about the culture of poverty and whatever is going on in the neighborhood and maybe shows you something about black culture. You could even say that, but does it show you something about black people mill? That's the kind of generality that the left that identity politics is peddling to everybody. So she's talking about men. But if she's not talking about the majority of men who would run to her defense, she's talking about the bad guys basically be the reason she can't live in an apartment on the ground floors because bad guys not going to because of me, it's not because of us because of somebody who might come in and that is what they're selling. That is the whole thing. There's on, they're selling bigotry. They're selling racism. They're selling sexism while swinging though slurs at us. Everybody's got problems and girls have problems that are for girls and boys up problems that are for boys. I think boy suffer from crime a lot more than girls do. Actually it, you know, because the person most likely to get murdered, I think as a young man in who is within the vicinity of a gang. So there's all kinds of problems. The world is tough. The world is tougher. Blaming identity groups, blaming identity groups as precisely not the way forward. And while the left continually accuses the right of doing it, it's all happening on the left. All right. That's for me. I'm not going to be on tomorrow. I will be back on on Thursday and have an extra show on Friday to make up for the one Wednesday gap. So you. Will have a Cleveland Louis Wednesday, but I'll be back on Thursday. I hope you will be too. I'm Andrew claybin. This is the Andrew klavan show.

Ep. 582 - Kavanaugh Fights Back
Media outlets are a Gog and some are even to God's over the latest allegations against the premium court nominee Brett Cavanaugh a woman who may or may not exist, has given the New Yorker magazine details of an incident that may or may not have taken place, but which has been confirmed by several witnesses who say they weren't. There. Writer Ronan Farrow says the possibly imaginary woman did not remember the time or location of the incident, but that this is a normal reaction to sexual trauma, especially when suffered by people who may not be real hearing of the new charges. Democrat Senator dick Durbin said, quote, I believe her, but then I'm a complete sleazeball. So I never trust anything. I say, unquote, meanwhile, super trustworthy point store lawyer. Michael naughty says he has a client who has extremely credible evidence that she is made up a story about Cavanaugh which if true would end his career of naughty said he could not give full details until there were at least a dozen cameras pointed in his direction. But he hinted the story involves six underage girls, a rubber chicken, a gang of pirates, three circus clowns. And a graphic description of a sexual organ that may or may not belong to a woman who's absolutely sure cavenaugh would have brutally raped her if they had ever met in the wake of all the noughties charge. Senator Dianne Feinstein said the cavenaugh hearing must be suspended immediately until more news networks could broadcast the baseless allegations, so that people who didn't listen to the news very carefully would understand the sort of monster. It sounds as if they're dealing with a new poll shows that voters now oppose the confirmation of whoever we're talking about to whatever he's nominated to until whatever's it issue has been thoroughly investigated. Now, leave us alone, Republican Senator Chuck Grassley. Meanwhile says, if the latest witness does not get in touch by the Thursday deadline, he will move the deadline to Friday.

I was like, do my eyes deceive me. Those Republicans with spines. I've never seen such a thing. I've got a lay off the mushrooms, I think is just taking drugs. I suddenly thought, whoa, re. But do you ever wonder why it is so hard for why Republicans not fight back. I mean they they're right about everything. I mean, at least as far so far as they represent conservatism there. Right? And they just, it always seems like they just feed way, you know, they kind of get right up there and then it's like, maybe not. Maybe we won't do it and all that talk Trump was running when Trump started running. I was appalled. I did not like Donald Trump at all. And people kept saying to me, yes, but he fights and say, yeah, but he'd lies and he believes people guess, but he fights. And I thought, how important is that? Well, it turns out they had a point. It is important. It is important. And the fact is he fights because he understands the media. Because he is a media guy. This is why the media hates him. So very much is because he's them on the other side, he understands what they do and who they are and that they have to be taken down and they have to be answered every single time and they have to be made fun of and after be ridiculed and they have to be exposed. He gets that he gets the media and for all this time, you know, part of part of the rap on Republicans is not always fair guys like Paul, Ryan and Mitch McConnell. They're always being accused of cowardice and being soft and all this, but their institutional men there guys in these great big cat wrangling institutions, and they can't always do what some guy on the radio who's pounding his fist into his palm wants them to do as I don't. You do something well, because they're managing hundreds of people with a huge egos. And sometimes you just have to be sly and slow and fight it out. But he's also the media. I mean, the media has which is wholly owned and operated subsidiary of the left. The media has this great gig going on it. As they define the terms by which you can be identified as racist or sexist. And then they say, oh, you know, the thing about racism. The first thing about racism is you don't know, you're racist view. You'll like anonymous hats. That's a sign that's fine. You raises. When you say you're not racist, that means you raises, because if you knew you were racist than you wouldn't be racist, you like I am Awad. It's like talking to Freudians back in the day. Remember if the Freudian psychiatrists, you wanna sleep with your mother sleep with my mother. Have you seen my mother? I don't even like my mother Passi. You wouldn't say that if you didn't want to sleep with your money so they know your race, so you don't know you're racist, but they know they know you're racist because they can hear the dog whistle. So you say, you know, I think a country needs a border. Every country on earth has always had a border. We should secure our borders because people are coming across in the south. The south is people are Brown. You're racist and not racist. Gotcha. See if you racist you, if you weren't raises, you wouldn't have said you're not racist because that means. Is your race, so they get you. So this is what Republicans are dealing with an, of course, if Democrats say, oh yes, Barack Obama, he's a clean negro who should be serving us coffee, but just happened to remember all that stuff. Joe Biden and Bill Clinton were saying about Barack Obama incredibly racist. You know, a superior arrogant stuff that was fine. No dog whistles there because it's all about really all really about politics. But if you say, wow, the Obama, these are dark days, dark, see that dark. You've got the dark. I heard the dark. You said dark race, not racist, see that proves it. So Republicans have been dealing with that for thirty forty years and they're like abused, children. They're afraid to speak, and they backed down because they're constantly being told, oh, you have to do this or you're racist, you have to do this. You're sexist. This time this time, they finally figured out they have to stand up led by Lynn by a little bit by Trump who came out and back Brad Kavanagh yesterday, but really by Cavanaugh who finally, finally started to talk back. He went on Martha, MC. Allen's caloms FOX show the story, and he just said he is not going to stand down, so play cut number two. I'm not gonna. Let false accusations try us out of this process and. We're looking for a fair process where I could be heard and defend the my integrity, my lifelong record, my lifelong record of promoting dignity and equality for women. Starting with the women who knew me when I was fourteen years old. Not going anywhere. See, this is a big deal because they were depending on him to run for it. They were depending on him for one Ford. They keep thinking if they can just break the if they can break the spines of the spineless Republicans any folds, then they've won. You know, the New York Times had an headline just kind of gave the game away today. The democratic dream defeat Cavanaugh win the Senate and stop Trump supreme court picks. In other words, let's not let this election have consequences. It's okay for elections have consequences when we win them, but not when the other side wins. And here they, they, they quote a guy, Brian Fallon, a campaign adviser to Hillary Clinton. He says, saving the supreme court from Trump's clutches has always involved a very complicated to step. I blog Cavanagh than fight like hell to win back the Senate and remember they're using the Anita hill playbook. But the whole thing is you have to remember this. They lost with Anita hill because Clarence. Thomas stood up to him and said, this is a lynching. So maybe we were talking yesterday about how they rewrite all history in their television shows and their movies, and those movies and televisions redefined history, but history, real history or Maine's the same. It doesn't get rewritten by HBO. It doesn't get rewritten in the movies. History remains the same and they lost. They could not stop, Clarence Thomas. And now they're thinking, hey, that's an idea what if we stand up to even Mitch McConnell, took to the Senate floor yesterday and made what for him was a powerful speech, a defending their their nominee Democrats are signalled for months. They'd put on whatever performance, the far left, special interest demanded and throw all the mud. All of a sudden. They could manufacturer. Well, it's not like they didn't warn us. But even by the far-lefts standards, this shameful shameful smear campaign as hit a new low. I'll get into the specifics in just a moment, but I want to be perfectly clear about what has taken place. Senate Democrats and their allies, or trying to destroy a man's personal and professional life on the basis of decades old allegations that are unsubstantiated. Uncorroborated. That Mr President is where we are. This is what the so-called resistant has become. I mean, for Mitch, that's a tantrum like that's for Mitch McConnell. That is the moral equivalent of throwing a table across the room. That was a very forceful. He's not exactly the most dramatic speaker, but that was a very forceful speech and it signal it put up a signal. Nope, we're standing. He says, we are going to vote on this. This is coming to a vote. It is going to get past the committees. So going back to this interview with Martha McCallum cavenaugh says he was never even at four. It's, I mean, this is the thing the the things stuff they're throwing them now or so unsubstantiated that it, it's just not fair. It's not fair to knock him down on the basis of this. He says he was never at this party. He never was in town. He wasn't in the town when they were doing it. But the big one was that Michael avenue thing where Michael said, oh, we have evidence that he Mark judge were kind of going to these parties and. Organizing gang rapes and so-. Martha McCallum asked him about that. And this was a very dramatic conversation. Number totally false and outrageous never done any such thing known about any such thing when I was in high school and I went to all Catholic high school, a Jesuit high school, whereas focused on academics and athletics going to church every Sunday at little flower, working on my service projects and friendship friendship with my fellow classmates and friendship with girls from the local all girls Catholic schools. And yes, there were parties and the drinking age was eighteen. And yes, the seniors were legal and had beer there. And yes, people might have had too many beers on occasion and people generally in highschool. I think all of us have probably done things. We look back on in high school and regret or cringe a bit, but that's not what we're talking about. We're talking about allegations of sexual assault. I'd never sexually assaulted anyone. I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to. Sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter, and the girls from the schools I went to, and I. We're saying that all through all these years that are in question you were virgin, does correct. Never had sexual intercourse with anyone in highschool correctness through what years in college. Since we're probing chairperson, many years after a leave it at that many years after all my God, a virgin, what is he might Pence? Remember after my fence because he said he said, I wouldn't go. He wouldn't go out with a woman alone. What are you? Mike? You're thirty five years later. She's going to charge accuse you of something you didn't do. I mean, it is amazing. You can't win. You can't win. If you're Mike Pence, you're horrible, crazy Christian who doesn't like women. And if you go out with a girl, who knows they may crucify you later on. Now we gotta talk about Dollar Shave Club because I want to answer the question. How do I look so great. And I know you as you know, I have been a member of Dollar Shave Club since long before they became a sponsor. I heard about them on Sean Hannity show and I actually was testing Sean. I thought he sounds really sincere. I wanna see if he's done truth because then I won't believe him about anything if they're no good, but they're great. They're absolutely great. They have everything. You need to look feel. Feel and smell your best. And as you know, I got a lot of real estate to cover, so I really need to use the best blades and I like all the other products they have now, I've now tried them all out at first.

Slash klavan. You'll finally be able to look in the mirror and say, how do you spell Cleveland? It's k. l. a. v. a. n.. So now it turns out the guys virgin and listened. That was an answer to to Michael noughties charge creepy as as Tucker calls and calls and creepy porn lawyer. Listen to Ottis response. It is UN be believable. So what exactly is he saying is he saying that he did not have sexual intercourse in a really going to get into a death in the word? Exactly. Well, exactly. I mean, are we going to get into a definition of sexual intercourse? I mean, does that mean that he performed oral sex or oral sex performed on him? Does that mean any host of any other sexual activities occurred or does he want America to believe that the only thing that he did Intel well into his college years was effectively kiss or French kiss a woman? Is that what he wants to believe? Well, because if I don't believe it, but what if this dude is that clear? Well, I, I don't believe it, and I think it shows that he's lying. Knows he's lying because he doesn't believe in a when I when I think of the things I've done, he can't possibly have done that. You're not too sleazy, Mike, just right. And the funny thing is now by the way he's locked his Twitter account. Why? Because I don't think he's got. I thought he thought they were gonna fold. I thought they all thought he was going to fold and they all thought the Republicans, we're gonna fold. Listen to chew Cheryl gay Stolberg from the New York Times who suddenly realized, wait, conservatives are fighting back and she can't believe it. Listen to what she says. They're kind of circling the wagons around judge Cavanaugh. You saw President Trump come out today and say, he stands by its with them all the way we're told Senator Mitch McConnell is going to make full throated endorsement of judge Cavanaugh when he takes the Senate floor this afternoon. We're already seen statements from people like Orrin Hatch and Tom cotton. Both Republican senators saying, let's go ahead with the hearing and go ahead with the vote, and they're attacking Democrats. As running a smear campaign. And I think this is actually galvanizing conservatives believe it or not in conservatives are telling me that they are more than ever behind judge Cavanaugh, that they feel that he's being unfairly attacked. And as you know, we're in the middle of a mid-term election season. So this is apparently riling up the conservative base just as the stories from these women are energizing. Democrats, especially democratic women, believe it or not. She says she cannot believe it. When we lie about you, you're supposed supposed to fold. When we start hurling these baseless accusations on you're supposed to back down. Let's see what happens if they stand their ground. I think it is going to be a good thing. So the other thing that was happening yesterday that really cracked me up, especially because of the way the New York Times covered it at the New York Times is like a source of constant satire at this point, deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein. He's been part of this whole DC circus circus. Right. There's a story that was going around that after James Comey was fired, and this was in the the guy who was Andrew McCabe was the acting head of the f. b. i. after Komi was fired, he wrote me no sane. Rod Rosenstein suggested he would wear a wire talk to Trump tape Trump and then they could get rid of him via article twenty five, which says, if you can get rid of the president, if he's not fit to to serve office rosenstone says, this isn't true. He says some said, it was a joke Brit. Hume tweeted today the the FOX, the dean of FOX, commentators, but tweeted according to our sources at Fox News. It wasn't a joke. It was a sarcastic rebuttal to an accusation that he wasn't being tough enough on. Trump as in, what do you want me to do wear a wire somehow. This got construed as a claim that he was joking or that he didn't say it. I have a very unpopular opinion about this. I because I know we want to talk about the deep state. We want there to be conspiracies against Trump in the deep state. I believe what Britain whom said, I believe Rosenstein wide. 'cause Rosenstein is a very, very smart guy. You don't have to like him, but he's a very, very smart talented attorney. He knows there ain't gonna be no article twenty-five. He knows he's not going to wear a wire and they're against the president that is just garbage. I just don't believe it Nikki Haley and Mike Pompeo or at the UN they both said that it was also ridiculous. Here's Haley. Literally. I have never want in the White House when that conversation has happened. I'm not aware of any cabinet members that are even talking about that. It is completely and totally absurd. No one is questioning that president all, if anything, we're trying to keep pace with him in the fact that he's got a lot. He wants to accomplish very quickly, and we're going to continue to support him in. The way that he doesn't. They're just trying to keep up with Trump. They're not trying to get rid of him. So yesterday, rod Rosenstein anyway, goes over to the White House and the reporter saying, he's going to resign. He's going to be fired. He's going to be fired. Then he's going to resign. He's going to resign, then he's going to be fired for so resign and they'll be fired. No, you're, you're all none of it happened. He went over there Trump's New York at the UN. So there wasn't going to be any firing and he wasn't going to resign. If he wasn't getting fired and Trump said, we'll talk on Thursday and we'll find out what's going on. I mean, he should answer for this. This is a serious thing. You don't want your deputy attorney general saying this, so he should answer and talk about what's going on and and what he meant and all that and Trump should should find out the truth. And of course you can always depend on Adam Schiff to be the sleaziest guy in the room. If he he and Michael avenue to start their own wa- firm, he's like the Joe McCarthy. He says, if he fires rod Rosenstein, it'll be the Saturday night massacre Allah Watergate. Rod Rosenstein should under no circumstances resign. If the president tends to obstruct Justice Roseanne. Stein should require him to be fired. He shouldn't take a step affirmatively and essentially let the president off the hook. This looks to me like a slow moving Saturday night massacre. It seems like the only question is whether these steps take place now or they take place after the midterms when the president believes he'll pay less of a political price for it, but the fact that these steps the firing of Komi pushing out rod Rosenstein, whether it's done now or later the firing of attorney general is apparently seems contemplated after the election. These are in their cumulative form the same as the Saturday night massacre and all designed for the same end. And that is to give the president direct control over investigation, which he may be implicated. He really is like the reincarnation of Joe McCarthy. Obviously, the Saturday night massacre when Archibald Cox the investigator into Watergate, Nixon fired him, and he had to fire a lot of people before he could find somebody who would fire him. Democrats always wanted to go back to Watergate. They hearken back to Watergate that was their great triumph when they overturned an election of someone, they didn't like without having to go back to the people, and that's what they're trying to imitate with Donald Trump. So they're always thinking about that. But what I love is the New York Times a former newspaper, the way they report this, they say, even for an administration, famous for chaos and rival factions. Monday's events regarding run rodents Rosenstein offered a remarkable display of the Zayed's gripping the Trump administration. Where was the cans. The case was at the New York Times. The cast was in the media. The -iety was in the media. All of this is in the media, and I'm not saying that Trump the White House's and chaotic. I don't know. I'm not there, but they're not worried about it. It's only it is only the New York Times and certainly not bothering me. It's not my. My life, the chaos is in the press. So we gotta bring on Ann Coulter because she's she's got her new book. Resistance is futile. How the Trump heating left wost its collective mind is out now and has been on the bestseller list the New York Times bestseller. There's so many times I've lost count, you know, because when she first came out, she was such a rockstar, and so beautiful and she did the dresses and the short dresses and all this people didn't notice what a terrific writer and researcher she is. I was living in England when she first became famous, and I was going like, well, you know, this woman is really something because he she's not doesn't just look like that, which is spectacular. She still expect which she also has got the substance that she really is a good observer of the political scene. Plus she has got a mouth owner and the other thing I always I'm always afraid I'm going to ruin a career by pointing out that in person. She is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. I'm absolutely crazy about her. Here's an Coulter talking about her new book. Resistance is futile, and it's so nice to hear your voice, how you doing. Right to talk to you, Andrew, klavan. So your new book resistance is futile. How the Trump hating left lost its collective mind. I have to ask you now you were one of the first early Trump subscribers. I remember you're getting knocked on the Bill Maher show for saying he was gonna win. Where do you stand on Trump now? How's he doing. Well, you'll notice the cleverness of my book is I have to say much about Trump himself. About the opposition to him because I started noticing. I mean, for those of you will follow me assiduously on Twitter, know that I'm a little upset with the man for not keeping his promises. I mean really was like a miracle candidacy no, he was never. I had in mind as as presidential material, but he was the only one who was saying all the things that none of the rest of them would say on trade on immigration on defending our borders and not other boards. We haven't really done any of that. Then you have this lunatic opposition to him and they don't notice the huge huge errors he is making that could drive his base away from him. No, no. They have to create some crazy Russian conspiracy, this demented loser who's lying about his his taxes and his going around assaulting women also managed to engage. A vast international conspiracy with our geopolitical enemy Russia, to seal the election from the most qualified woman ever to run for that office. So the book, luckily for me, I don't really have to say anything nice about Trump. And in fact, I mean the one, the one hopeful note I ended on which the the very last sentence. Like if you a little secret, I only through in the very last one of the entire book because I thought. Was gonna harsh on Trump. And some people are are getting are getting annoyed with me for for ragging him on on Twitter, including him himself, but screw him, build the wall if you want me to stop. But the final chapter is, you know, maybe the only thing we'll ever get out of this guy is he'll destroy the media, which would by which I mean the existing mainstream media. We can build a new Bill media on more ethical lines because that is what the whole. The first two hundred pages of the book attacks. The media is just completely out of control with Trump. They have lost their minds and they're not. They're not hurting Trump there, helping him. They're not, and they're certainly not helping the country. Well, now let me ask you the books called resistance is futile is futile. I mean, the polls are kind of showing that people want the Democrats to take back congress. Do you disbelieve. I think Republicans are working so hard to ensure there is a Blue Wave. They may overcome the good effort of the insane media. I mean, their base is white hot. The odds are store equate ought to be a Bluewave Democrats should have a really big year and is our basic cited while there's no wall. And and just a couple of days ago, the Washington Post ran big article, talking various Republicans senators don't even have the decency to lie to the voters, your apparel action, and you come out what if you weeks before the most important midterm election in a very long time. And yeah, we're never given you a wall. John cornyn. You're going. Them and knew who whoever their advisers. Yep. Yep. We've checked with the American people. They have no interest in a wall. It's really gonna help you now. I just I don't even know if they're corrupt or stupid. At least cynically lied to us and pretend we're getting all after the midterm election and now that this cabin on business will success was such a big issue. What's stopping them? I seriously. I don't know. I've. I figured the one thing we were gonna get out. Well, I say one thing destroy the media, maybe the only thing now, but but on one of the things I loved about the Trump campaign was he really exposed my party, the Republican party. I, I knew the Democrats didn't particularly care for Americans, but I mean the hatred for Trump instead of other Republican candidates grabbing onto his issues that that that night on Bill Maher where I said Trump was the most likely to win the nomination. And he was just asking about the nomination then that was two days after what I call the Mexican rapist. Speech Trump wasn't even my candidate than the rest of the tape. The I follow up by saying, he's not my candidate. I'm still hoping for a Romney Scott Walker ticket, but they're like, you know, serious individuals. They have the background in politics, the sort of thing you would you want from presidential candidate? Well, I didn't candidates fly like them drab Trump's issues while this is popular. Americans are willing to put up with a complete lunatic. If he will just build a wall. The port illegals in the job, killing trade deals for one do something for the flyover. People lose something for the working class. I'm not working last this and self interested, but no, no, no Republicans check with her their consultants and the consultants CEC with the donors and know what the American people want is more cheap labor. All right. So let's let let's talk about bread cavenaugh this is I finding this kind of disgusting. Reminds me Vince Foster's suicide note. Remember where he said that destroying people in Washington is a sport. So what first of all, what do you think? Where do you think this is going to vote today? This is so outrageous. I knew they were going to do this. I, I'm just, I'm I'm, I'm curious about this. I knew this would come up. You had probably every I was in college and law school about the same time as Brad Kavanagh. I know just didn't happen. This absolutely didn't happen. One girl who says I was her Ramirez, the woman best friend in law school. If this had happened, I would have known about it and no, this didn't happen. And that woman gives her name as did five other close friends of of both of them in that dorm room. They give their names and say, absolutely. This never happened. So it's a job, but will the Republicans cave. I'm terrified. They will appear like this wouldn't never have been run against anyone else. That's. I mean, that's not Ronin Faeroes fault. It's the New Yorkers fault. You can't imagine a piece like this. You don't have one person substantiating which actually kind of surprises me because I think probably ninety nine percent of the female graduates from Yale. Oreo law school attended pussy hats, marches that you can't get five of them together to to lie about cavenaugh just save abortion. But I, I mean, one thing that's worth mentioning I checked to make sure I was my recollection was right about this. I looked it up on Nexis. Cavanaugh was one of Ken Starr's lead prosecutors for those of us who lived through it, build Lyndon James Carville, Larry, Flint, Harvey Weinstein had a book that did nothing but slim look into the personal lives of SARS prosecutors and people like me. I got the book kill. It was called insane. Clown posse there was massive investigation that was Bill Clinton's approach attack. The people who are investigating me and they couldn't find a Kavanagh's name was all over the news back then that's what I checked on nexus to make sure it wasn't just something I happen to know from like Washington gossip. I'm no, no, no, no. It was all over the news. Bret Cavanaugh break avenue brought cavenaugh and the Clinton attack machine couldn't find this woman Ramirez when he was one of the lead prosecutors under an investigation that led to the impeachment of Bill Clinton for whipping out his penis in front of female underlings would. What do you think? What do you think of the entire kind of me too thing where something you did thirty five years ago comes back and bites. You do have sympathy for the metoo people, or is it all just kind of political scam? Well, it's a mixed bag. Some of them I think are great. Some of them are. I mean you you notice, it's I, I'm not sure I'd call this me too. This is this borking worsening, but most of the ones that have been described as me to it was all one hundred percent liberal sexual predators who had been protected for twenty years. Why? Because Hillary Clinton was running for president and they needed to defend Bill Clinton and teddy Kennedy, and suddenly suddenly there, you know, the dam breaks. Okay. Now you can go after friends of Bill and Hillary Clinton. And so the first the first batch of them, oh my gosh, all liberal men. You couldn't have gotten away with any of that. Andrew only if only I could, you know. You've talked a lot about you when you're talking about the media and I agree with you. I think the media is one of the biggest problems we have in the country, a absolute an absolutist when it comes to the first amendment, but they are so corrupt. They need to reform themselves or be beaten into reforming what? What are the big lies? I'm running out of time it. Can you give me a list of the big lies? They've been selling about Donald Trump that you as no great friend of Trump's that you feel are just real big lie stuff. Well, I'll do them roughly in order. One was the access Hollywood tape. It's a sexual assault at the sexual assault. He said, they let you do it. It would that the access Hollywood tape is the perfect encapsulation of what they do. They had a tape with with Trump sounding like a complete idiots and a Boor, but they can't just leave it at that. I don't know. We have to leap to it's a criminal offense and they were so they they the Titanic overreaction to the access Hollywood tape. I think the public had the same reaction. I'm having right now to the false claim. False claim in the case of cabinet on maybe unfair to compare them, but the false claim against claims against Cavanaugh. It's people end up being more outraged by the deliver of the news. Also, of course, the access Hollywood tape, the release of that the husbanding of it and recording of it that is no illegal, very, very. Illegal. Certainly, it's, it's the same sort of thing as the allegation that the Russians hacked the DNC's and emails and publish them information. The Democrats didn't want to come out that was embarrassing to them. Truthful came out before the election. I mean that whole the everything the Russians are accused of is what the media does. Two Republicans every like. All right, Anne Coulter. You're the best. I mean, I look at all the young women coming up today. You have become a genre. I think you've created an entire generation of commentators. It's always great talking to you. Thanks very much. I say the thing I love most about an aside from the fact that she is hotter than the hinges of hell because I'm a total sexist and a sucker for a pretty face and she's just gorgeous. But but aside from that, the thing I really love is she cuts nobody any slack. She will support you if she agrees with you and she supported Trump because she feels that this, that the situation at the border is a crisis. You were on the tire book about it at Llosa America, and she has taunted him on Twitter every single day. Every single day she taunts Trump on Twitter saying miles of wall built so far zero and she came twenty same same tweet and she has gotten into cursing four letter word, you know, back and forth with him in the Oval Office. And she just holds his feet to the fire. If. If he doesn't do the thing that he promised to do that was most important to her. And when she talks about the press that he may actually destroy the press will we can reform it and get more honest media in America which we really do need. She's right. That may be the most important thing. He does all right time for sexual follies. So if you follow the drudge report and everybody follows the drudge report, it looks like it was printed in nineteen ninety, but it's still still the essential new site. On the internet. You may have noticed that mattress is a little bit of szeswith sex, robots. Basically, that's because they include both the word sex and robots, and I think that's just very compelling. But the thing about sex was is it actually is important issue in this funny way because of TRAN with equal transhumance, which is the fact that we are clearly heading into an age when human beings are going to be enhanced, but we're by adding stuff to their brains and you put, you know, attaching them to machines and sexual kind of part of that something that you can have, what used to be a, an essentially human relationship you'll be now able to have with a machine. And I think trans humanism is a big deal. And one of the ways you can tell it's a big deal is because of so many, you know, when I was a kid, all the movies were westerns and about World War Two because America was thinking about its past was thinking about how we became the greatest nation in the world, which when I was a kid, we really had just become where we're going to the moon, all this stuff was happening. And so we westerns in World War Two where the two big subjects of the movies and of our game. Games that we played. Whereas now everything is super heroes. Everything is super heroes and science fiction, as I predicted by the way that we are now thinking about superheroes and science fiction, because we're thinking about how we're going to move into this new age when we become essentially superheroes, but what are the ethical problems going to be one of the moral problems going to be, you know, the the Noir detective sore, the tough guy, detective story, which I made my living at for so many years is now usually like blade runner a detective story about the nature of humanity that is this mystery that the detective is trying to solve because transient ISM is right around the corner and people sense it coming, and they sense it in their subconscious and creative people censored. And so they make these movies and that's what they feel that they're all about their sort of preparing our minds for this to happen. So with sex robots, one of the reasons I think that drudge is obsessed with it. And so many people are obsessed with it is because it sort of is telling us that this relationship that was so. So human is at the core of our humanity may now be shunted off or it may be possible to shut it off into a machine. And was it means so netters. Now there are now people coming along who feel that sex robots have to be regulated that we have to prepare for sex robot ISM with regulations, and the things are talking about our should you be allowed to have a sexual, but is that makes noises as if she's being raped, or should you be allowed to have a sexual, but who looks like a child? And what's really funny about this to me. And I mean, I know that's kind of sounds not that funny, but it is kind of funny because how can you rape robot. I mean to rape, somebody is to strip them of their will. That is the crime of rape. I mean, rape is just you is in terms of its actions, if it's not violent rape is just sacks. What makes rape rape is that you were stripping somebody of their right to choose what they're gonna do. A robot doesn't have that right at robot. Can't make choices. And what difference does it make the robot looks like a child for all? I know that's gonna help some, you know, pedophile take it out on a robot instead of a real human beings that have really damaging. In being may be a positive thing that that he can do that and yet underneath all that underneath all that I can't help. But feel that there is a question that robots like this and questions about regulation. Bring up that is the discussion that we are having, but not having, you know, remember I was talking yesterday about the fact that the left ruins everything by making all their discussions really battles for power. They're not really talking about what we think we're talking about. We're always talking about whether the left should get more power for the government and with this metoo movement, which has really become this weapon that they're willing. I mean, I know they're really honest people in the metoo movement, but it's now become his weapon that the left is wielding to get power underneath. That is a question about the nature of of women. The nature of men is also in this kind of transgender discussion. What are we like? And the reason I'm so opposed to feminism. The reason I've always been so opposed to feminism is because I oppose its opposition to feminity. I think that masculinity and feminine near both things that we need in the world. I think we need women to be feminine and we need men to be masculine because those two forces make the world whole. And I think the conversation that we really need to be having is what does he human being? And once we get finished with that, we have to talk about what is a man and what is the woman because that's the conversation that's underneath the conversation we're having. All right.
