Trump panned over reports he called US war dead 'losers'
"William Branham reports on the fallout intensifying today over an article that alleges President Trump made disparaging remarks about U. S troops. It's a fake story, and it's a disgrace that they're allowed to do it. President Trump is firing back after a report in the Atlantic magazine and later confirmed by multiple news organizations, said the president several times called fallen American servicemembers, losers and suckers in the Oval Office today, the president again flatly denied ever making the comments. And instead touted military spending under his administration. There's nobody that considers the military and especially people that have given their lives in the military to be the heroes. Who the heck does he think he is his Democratic opponent, former vice President Joe Biden, whose own son, Beau, served in Iraq. Called the reported comments deplorable.

He doesn't remember them have never heard the president used the language. Those certainly has said in that article. But going back to his 2016 campaign, Mr Trump has had a complicated relationship with the military theme. He's often praised those with military experience and has had many working with him in the White House. But other times he's questioned their service. Like his widely criticized comments about Senator John McCain, who was tortured and imprisoned for more than five years during the Vietnam War, a war hero.

The Post Pandemic City
"The economic reopening in a lot of cities is still in its early stages right now in New York. It just started yesterday, but it is still possible to discern a few big trends. One of the most important trends, the world retail stores might be changed forever. The simple reason is that people have shifted to buying things online just incredibly fast in this crisis they've had to. They haven't been able to actually walk into stores and a lot. Lot of retail companies the ones that tend to sell their goods in physical location, the old fashioned way they are going to struggle to reopen at all clothing stores. Big Department stores were already in trouble because of e-commerce Derek. Thompson is a writer for the Atlantic magazine and he just published an article about the future of cities. He says there are a lot of those kinds of stores. The US in general is dramatically over stored over. Over retailed we have approximately ten times more retail space per capita than Germany about five times where retail space per capita than the UK and that means if a lot of economic activity goes online, a lot of the stores are going to have to be shut in a city. These stores are often clustered together in certain neighborhoods, so if they start closing up in big numbers, people are going to notice the difference just going to. To be a lot of boarded up windows. Of course, this isn't going to happen to every business. Some businesses Derek likes to say are un-. Amazon Apple, which means you cannot buy online with these businesses are selling like working out in a gym or eating inside of a restaurant or a bar. In cities, those businesses were already taking up more of the retail space before the pandemic, but there is a problem both restaurants and fitness centers. Create conditions that based on our current understanding of Covid nineteen are just about the worst possible conditions that you can be in for transmissibility of this disease. It's inside spaces that often aren't well ventilated or people are packed together and they're also. They're often talking or sweating, so the kinds of businesses that were already in trouble before the pandemic retail stores, department stores aren't even more trouble now while the kinds of places with a good chance of thriving long run like gyms and bars and restaurants are exactly those places that will continue to be most threatened by the virus in. In the short run at least until there is a vaccine or or some other solution answers, Derek there is another trend that is changing what cities look like. He calls it the chain of vacation of cities, so before the pandemic big national chain of restaurants and retail stores had been replacing some of the smaller independent quirky kind of weird businesses that often will make a city interesting between two thousand, eight and two thousand eighteen New York. City added a new. Dunkin donuts franchise approximately every twelve days every twelve days a new Dunkin. DONUTS in New York City for ten straight. Small, independent businesses have less access to raising money than be companies do so. They are more at risk of closing down if they start running out of cash to pay their bills, tens of thousands of small businesses have closed down for good because of the pandemic, and that is going to give big chains, even more of a foothold in cities. And that's not all along. With these huge changes to the retail landscape of cities think about two other trends that have also been accelerated by the crisis. I more people are working from home now, which means fewer people are otherwise going to corporate offices like the ones often headquartered in big cities and second of all population growth in cities is lagging behind suburbs. In fact, the populations of New York and Chicago actually fell last year. When you add it all up, it means that in the near future whole parts of big densities like new. York could be quiet and a lot emptier. emptier than they were before. We haven't even mentioned movie theaters, museums, playhouses, concert and sporting venues, the places that often provide cities with so much of their kinetic energy, but these are also the kinds of places that are expected to be the last to open Derek. Thompson says you take all these trends together, and it shows how the pandemic is acting as a kind of tax on crowdedness that means it's a tax on what makes cities cities I love cities because of their diversity because of their bustle, because of that that from of people, and this is going to punish that thing. So, you could be rough times ahead for

And then how did things ever cool off? He points out. We're coming out of actually the little ice age. But that the warming has stopped. And he he uses a great analogy says the football stadium stadium in Texas hundred thousand seats. And he says let's in order to help people understand. He I don't have it right in front of me. But he takes these hundred thousand states as how many of these seats are oxygen. How many of these seats are? Other elements how many of these seats, and then he gets down to how many of these seats are THEO too. And the answer is forty the equivalent if you have if you have a hundred thousand seats in AT and T stadium. The Cowboys play football forty of those seats if you apportion each seat atmosphere ick. Compensation? Or composition only forty. Out of one hundred thousand our CO twos. Meaning we're nowhere near saturation. He he indicates scientifically how CO two cannot possibly be a primary factor in climate or atmospheric warming. It's a long pace. And it's got a lot of science at all charts and graphs, but and his ticks gets kicked off his call denier, his got more scientific atmospheric meteorological experience and education, most of the so-called scientists that are said to be part of the consensus have it's really well done. I will I'll cocoa gift the link to this since I've mentioned this, and I'll send it. I'll send it up to you. But it just it's it's proven this guy the Atlantic and the sound bite in the last hour. Telling people. Yeah, we use natural disasters. As a way to convince the Rush Limbaugh listeners that climate change is real. And we combine that with economic just economic Justice climate Justice in vine, mental Justice. You know, I I would I would argue that you listeners the IB number. I would argue, you know, far more than people who just listened to the drive by media. You know, so much more than just people listen to NPR and their podcast because we talk about both sides of every issue. I always cover the left side in depth. And the reason I do this is because it buttresses my point. I don't just sit here and stall virtues of say conservatism or common sense. I always compare it to what the left what the other side is saying or what they believe in order to demonstrate the supremacy. Of my slash our beliefs. I cover them. I cover the left in much greater depth than they do in even themselves. They're not honest about themselves, and who they are. And what their motives are. And I present the alternative facts that they never touch. So it is you people in this. You are the ones. Who are always free to decide who is right on whatever issue because you do get both sides presented to you here. Think of all the things people who only get their news in the drive-by media. Don't know. It's striking. What they don't know. What was the other day? I ran into somebody and was explaining something that is fundamental you. And I have understood this for two years, I think has to do with the. Something to do with the mullahs report. It's I wish I could remember it was it was just flat out obvious. They had never heard it. It they they'd never even heard the fact or the theory or the idea had never heard it because all they ever do is pay attention to the drive by media. In democrats. Biggest problem is what they always claim is ours. That is their primaries force their candidates to run very far to the ultra left and the country's not socialist. That's their big problem. Anyway, it just it just kind of irritates me. Because this this images that drive by media's educated and informed and comprehensive. It's nothing. Nothing of the sort in any way, shape matter form now as synagogue shooting. Once again, there has been shooting by a guy who hates Trump. The shooter. Here hates Trump and hates conservatives and calls both of them us and Trump via names. Yet, the Democrats. And the media still trying to blame Trump and conservatives for the shooting. Meanwhile, antisemitism has totally taken over the democrat party. And you know, how they're disguising it. They're using opposition to Israel as their platform for full-fledged. Universal anti semitism. Including and eleven by the New York Times. It's it's it's a strange juxtaposition because America's left wing Jewish population is devoted to the democrat party. So much. So that we've never been able to figure it out. We've never been able to figure out why so many Jewish people are Liberal Democrats, given what Liberal Democrats stand for. Well, we I look I know what the answer is. I'm not going to belabor it here. But what are these people doing? Now the party that they have devoted themselves to have become immersed in anti semitism. Led by the New York Times a couple of days before the shooting, the international edition of the New York Times. Ran a despicable cartoon it featured a blind. Donald Trump wearing a yarmulke. Trump is is leading Benjamin Netanyahu on a leash Netanyahu is portrayed as a dog. Trump has him on a leash. And he's wearing a star of David collar. Just to make sure the point isn't too subtle. Now the cartoon coulda come right out of any of the rabid anti semitic publications from the Nazi Germany days. We have the cartoon. I'm gonna put it up this for those of you watching on the dental Cam, Gordon, switch it over. This is the cartoon ran in the international edition of the New York Times. There's Trump dressed up as an orthodox Jew with dark glasses and a Yamaha. And that is Netanyahu's face on the dog star of David collar, and it is Netanyahu leading Trump around. Well, actually, Trump has Israel on the leash is what this is supposed to me. This is blatant anti in a New York Times has received voluminous criticism over this. And they have done gigantic may account as a navy apologize. And they don't know how it happened and all the usual things have happened with false phony apology. Well, we don't know how it had been while professor Dershowitz limit about this and wants to be an investigation New York Times should investigate itself. He says the fig. Figure out just how in the world. This could happen. Look at that cartoon, this is an anti-semitic cartoon. That's the world view of the New York Times. If you're still looking at the DittoCam, and there's No MR to be solved here. The lone culprit isn't buried under layers of editors the publishing of this cartoon is symptomatic of shared prejudice. That has infected the left look at their heroes today. You'll hunt Omar hates Jews exempted all Cortez who loves Johan, Omar. Rush to leave. These people are born antisemites it's part of their existence. And they are not being condemned for it. They are being excused by people like Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and remember Barack Obama sat in Jeremiah Wright's church for twenty years. Democrats didn't care about the anti semitism and occurred there. Professor Dershowitz said the New York Times owes its readers more than an apology. We are entitled to an investigation and explanation. How the antisemitic cartoon get published who approved it what steps are being taken to prevent a recurrence. And then he tweeted that the anti semitic cartoon published by the New York Times, they symptom of a deeper problem on the left, it is acceptable to many on the left to employ anti semitic tropes as long as they are directed against Israel. Bingo. Anti Zionism is becoming acceptable cover for anti semitism. Meaning you can oppose Israel. Meet note, you can be an anti Semite. You can you can be totally opposed to Jews and just couch it as being opposed to Israel, and it sends the same message. In other words, it's cowardice. Rather than just admit your antisemitic. Naked clear, your anti Israel, and you accomplish the same thing. It took the New York Times until Sunday to apologize for that cartoon, they published it all the way back last Thursday. The international addition, even then they only apologized on Twitter. They didn't talk about punishing the people who were behind the cartoon. And the truth is this kind of smear is not unusual for the New York Times Friday. They had to apologize for publishing a piece back on Good Friday that claimed Jesus was Palestinian. One thing that's become apparent. In reading the New York Times. It's not just me observing this. And this goes back to again about what journalism is what we think journalists. We think we think they're educated. We think they have Stoorikhel perspective. We think that they are curious that they are informed. The New York Times has people that do not understand the first thing about Christianity. They do. It's it's not it's not that. They just are biased and are publishing lies native literally in this era in this ever lotion of the times, they don't have anybody who actually understands Christian Easter worshipers, for example. Easter worshippers. And the reason is because there is an anti-christian bias on the left. And once there is an anti-christian are anti conservative bias. You don't have to learn anything about it. It's just bad. So Fox News is bad. Rush limbaugh. Talk radio's Ben just because they say it's bad just because we're conservative. You don't have to say anymore. You don't have to know anymore. You don't have to explain anything. Because everybody at your side already agrees. Conservatives embed Christianity, bad Christianity, part of the American founding the American founding bad. That's it. That's the extent of their knowledge, which of course, isn't knowledge brief timeout. We will continue El Rushbaugh and EIB network right after rush is always at work and the bever.
Adults are the only ones who fell for the Momo hoax
"Invited. Taylor ends from the Atlantic magazine to come into our offices and watch this video with me. Yeah. I saw this before. Mall gonna kill you. So what happens in this video to physically? There's this little girl. She's really cute. She's swaying back and forth. And she's singing this song. Like mama's gonna kill you. If you see hill in the hallway see will kill you, mama. Momon isu- kill you. That's it. This little girl. She looks like she's in a school uniform. She's clutching a stuffed animal, I think it's a great FOX with the big pink bow on it. This is my six year old almost seven year old daughter. That knows all the words to the song because she has seen it on YouTube. And then the mom kind of filming pulls away, and is basically like this is the warning to all parents, tell your children not to listen. That's right. We know that Momo can't hurt you. Right. That's right. I mean, when I even as I cannot help it role is at this point. I have all these crazy messages from parents this week telling me like Nomo is real she actually hacked my child's Facebook page, and it's like, no, she there's that's not even a thing over the last few months Momo has become a kind of internet boogeyman a creepy face spliced into YouTube videos for kids with bulging eyes, a stretched out smile. Pictured a little girl from the ring with exaggerated features parents in some of these videos, avoid dares kids to harm themselves or harm others. They call it the Momo challenge I've seen these types of videos for over a year since it first went viral over a year and a half ago about you publish an article basically saying MoMA was a hoax. Yeah. Well, it's I mean, it's an urban legend might be a better word for it. It's not real. It's like slender man or something. Tillers Momo's hoax because there isn't any evidence that kids are actually following Momo's instructions just a lot of freaked out. Parents it's crazy. How many people just flat out will not leave it or they not believe that. It's a whole not believe that it's a hoax and not believe that. There aren't you know, hundreds of children committing suicide over this like there's just no way to tell them that it's not real. And they'll say like I have sources inside Google. And I'm like, I actually do have sources I I actually talked to YouTube on regular races. It's my entire beat. And I'm telling you, this isn't real. And by the way, here's the Genesis of it, and they don't wanna hear it. But even though the Momo challenge isn't real Taylor says the fear that animates it that is, you know, it's sort of like it's ten pm where your children, you know, what I mean? But it's like, it's mpm. Like, do you know, what your children are watching on YouTube? It's actually like this evil creature. That's trying to get them to. Commit suicide just a stranger dangerous stranger danger. Exactly. And I think it also kind of explains parents fear of these platforms, which actually aren't affair is in very real tangible ways.

"This Sunday morning. This morning. I am going to share with you. An hour of time with one of my very special private tutors. Jonathan doesn't know he's been my private tutor. But there are several dare I say public figures who have points of view, opinions observations or knowledge that is so important. To me, and it should be everybody that I. Absorb everything I can from my family, my group of private tutors there my private tutors because I listen to their podcasts. I read their writing I read their blogs. I watched them where they are being interviewed by others. And Jonathan hates this morning. Scarce is one of that somewhat small group of my private tutors. So we have had a very long relationship. Jonathan wasn't aware of it. But he has helped me understand so much Jonathan has written with Greg Lukianov, a former against on my show several times, a very very important book entitled the coddling of the American mind, the book solid up on the. An article in the Atlantic magazine. I think it was the most it's been said to be the most widely read article in the history of the publication entitled how trigger warnings are hurting mental health on campus. Jonathan writes about how students seat are arriving on college campuses, ill prepared to learn to absorb to learn how to process adverse points of view, and that has already has and will have profound implications. Both for the mental health of that generation for the mental health of future generations and for the political health of our country. So Jonathan welcome to the show this morning, and thanks so much for your article for your book and being so generous with your knowledge to help me understand so much about the world around me. Well that is a red carpet rollout. Hello, bob. Thanks so much for having me. Good morning Jonathan now Jonathan up you're writing your writing and a lot of your attention. These days has been directed to a phenomenon that seems to me to have sprung into life full grown like leaping from a theme is temple didn't exist at all. Nobody wrote about it or mentioned it perhaps little Eskenazi observed that a little bit with her writing at her work on free range kids, but then boom it appeared on college campuses. And now, it's imp- news about it articles about it are impossible to avoid not that anybody should try, but it possible to avoid so tell us about the phenomenon you write about and in your opinion. How did it? Become so robust so quickly. Right. So that's the way it felt is that in about two thousand fourteen twenty thirteen to twenty fourteen of that academic here. Greg Lukianov, my co author he is the president and CEO of the foundation for individual rights in education. So he'd been working since around the year two thousand pushing back against speech codes, and all the restrictions on speech that universities often put on students, and he was used to the problem being the administrators being overprotective and treating students as though they were fragile and they had to be protected from this and that and suddenly in two thousand thirteen to twenty fourteen Greg noticed, but the first time. Duda. Saying protect us from this. This is this is not just wrong this idea or this book or the speaker this this is dangerous. If this person speaks on our campus, people will be traumatized, and this is what was new was the medicalisation of at the idea that students are fragile and that adults have to protect the students from these threats that seemed as you say to spring full blown full grown. And we wrote about that in our Atlantic article in two thousand fifteen which of the official title of it was the coddling of the American mind, and it was at the time. It was one. It was I think it was the fourth or fifth most widely circulated article in the Atlantic history at least on online, which I guess does dwarf everything that happened in the nineteenth century, I suppose at any rate in that article we we analyze what was going on. But we didn't we didn't have the space or time to go into where it came from. Because of course, they couldn't have just appeared from out of nowhere and in our book, which is also called the Karla. The American mind. Although now, we have the subtitle which is really what the book is about. And bad ideas are setting up a generation for failure. That's what the book is about..

"And I bet, and I bet you most most people who are like even assessing babies, you know. Powerplays don't realize that don't realize that a lot of his constituency are actually people of color. Well, yeah. I mean, there's a lot of naievety in the states and in a straighter about well, especially in the states. I think it's gone so much further in the states than it has anywhere else. The obsession with identity like I was talking to an American friend about the fact that Asian Australians. Tend to be conservative. I don't know whether the majority conservative, but I usually tend to be and there's a huge number like more than half of strata has arrived. Since the second World War, we have an immigration rate, three times higher than the United States per capita and a lodge lodge chunk of that his Asian and they essentially hard-working conservative small business people who vote for who vote conservative and like in the American American context, a recent person of color migrant is supposed to be left wing. So that's a little bit baffling, but it's actually where it's wealthy, what in a city people like me who swell Chardonnay and sip Al left-wing and strategy. So let's just give it back to the states to wrap this up. Do you have any final thoughts about the the pace that you wrote in the New York Times that we were alluding to earlier was was headline y refused to avoid what people and was basically about how when you were growing up, you didn't really hear the woods white privilege. That was something that you heard when you go to college and so to speak to me about whiteness and the path forward for the left. I don't know what's going on with the less. There's this. There's this trends unhealthy trend of racialist into Lytham. That essentially says that by virtue of being white or quite frankly, by virtue being black, that you are expected to embody a particular, a particular set of really behaviors, and it is a -ssume that you would have had a particular set of experiences by two of your skin color. Actually, this is happening on both the left and the right. The left. You see, I think coming from the lights of. Tana hussy coats who if people don't know, I really, really disliked his ideas for the most part at a piece in Atlantic magazine responding to one of his pieces about Donald Trump. So so Tyler hussy coats is the really the. I mean, he, he is really pioneer this at least in contemporary life. This idea on ratio essentially. And he believes that quote, unquote whiteness is the the reason for the season. If you will, the reason for everything bad and and and toxic, and dominating and evil in the world. I think on the right, you have people like Candice Owens who who also engage in this exercise of ratio essentially by saying, you know, the left has the Democrats have tricked us and all of us, black people are waking up and we're getting off the plantation, which is really just a horrible analogy and trivializing of what the experiences slavery was like. So the so this is happening on both the left on the fringes. I think of the lesson the right and it's actually quite toxic because what it essentially says is that, let's say coach's perspective, for example, he, I don't know if you saw his piece in Atlantic calling. He claimed he accused Konya west of exercising whiteness. Okay, so that is that is so insulting as a black person. Because what he's essentially saying is that Konya west does not have the freedom to be wrong. That's what he's saying. Because while he studied you him, I think just to articulate his argument for people haven't read it. I think he was saying that extremely privileged, wealthy black people find themselves can well specifically cognac and find themselves falling into a trap of of kind of universe universalising their own luxury and privilege and so has become a Trump supporter. And in Tana he's he coaches is he's basically become white in the sense that he's lost any connection to the to what it means to be a minority because he's been privileged for so long. I think that's the way I would..
