Stephen Miller: Biden's Cognitive Mistakes Can Lead to Nuclear War
"Cut ten. Here's more of what Stephen Miller said about the cognitive decline of Joe Biden and why it matters. I'm not sitting here just trying to take political pot shots at Democrats. That's not what we're saying. You have got to understand what the risk is here. Stephen Miller sure understands it. Of course, we can talk about Afghanistan, the greatest foreign policy humiliation in American history without even a close second, we can talk about the fact that this administration is now presiding over the first war in Europe since the Second World War, obviously you've had some conflicts, so I shouldn't say the first major war in Europe since the Second World War. There's obviously been some conflicts, but the first major war in Europe. And nothing like, for example, what happened in the Balkans or what happened in the Clinton administration, you're talking about something that could lead us to nuclear war. You're talking so that could lead us to World War II. So this could lead to nuclear war. Do you understand it?

Who Was Mikhail Gorbachev?
"Yesterday, Mikhail Gorbachev passed away. Now for many young people out there, they have no idea who Gorbachev is. In fact, I was talking to some young people recently. I said, oh, you know, tell me about the Soviet Union never heard of the Soviet Union. In high school, never heard of the Soviet Union. They don't learn that stuff in school anymore. Now Gorbachev was a very special leader. Gorbachev by all estimates was ethical and full of integrity. In a country that was basically run by thugs and criminals and was nothing more than a massive cartel enterprise. Now Gorbachev was met with a fair amount of anti Soviet Union protests and he was one of the first people not to crack down on the anti communist anti totalitarian protest with force. Now, Gorbachev is not totally beloved in Eastern Europe. He's not. In fact, Vladimir Putin has said many times that one of the greatest mistakes that Russia ever made was the dissolution of the Soviet Union, brokered by Gorbachev. Gorbachev ended the Cold War. And yes, Gorbachev was outmaneuvered and out strategized by Reagan, but he was always inclined towards peace. Gorbachev was probably too good of a person to run the Soviet Union. And he did bring a lot of he brought a movement of sovereignty of in Estonia and Lithuania and Latvia in the Balkan Peninsula. The Soviet union was a far reaching totalitarian communist blanket over the eastern part of Europe and a lot of that has broken up and Russia is doing their best job to try to recreate that. Albeit very difficult and clumsily and at a very, very high cost.

"Sorry. What has been the best part of your life so far? The best part of my life. I don't know, man. I think I haven't gotten there yet to be honest. It all seems pretty general to me. I mean, I love everything that was given to me. But I'm talking about the health and family and skills to do certain stuff and stuff. And my girl, of course. But I don't know, I think I haven't gotten there yet. Yeah, I'm going to leave that. I'm going to come back on your podcast in a couple of years, and I'm going to tell you what it is. Okay, cool. Cool. Fabulous. Yeah, it's set. Yeah. Excuse me? I didn't hear that. Have you had any sorry? Have you had any low points in your life? Yeah, actually. When I, when I produced my second album, I was waiting on some guys to help me with the promotions and everything. And they told me to wait. I waited on them about three or four months. And then after four months, they just ghosted me totally. They relocated the offices and everything. And I was like, I've already spent a lot of money on it. So by the end of it, I was broke. And my second, my second album was actually the biggest flap ever and I was losing my mind because I put so much effort on it. And I was waiting for a bigger return on investment. And it just goes to show you that you can't really trust people. That's why I try to do stuff, not through friends. Because if you have somebody that is a friend, you're going to factor in the fact that you can't do this and that to that person or et cetera because you know him or you know his dad or whatever the hell you're supposed to be like a polite guy or whatever. But if you work with people that are actual businesses and you pay them, that's actually really good because they have a contract to hold on to. So I had to learn that the hard way, but now I pay people and they tell them you're going to get the money as soon as the job is done, et cetera, et cetera. I don't do the mistake. But yeah, when the second album came out, I was like, you know, a couple of weeks later, I was totally devastating. I was thinking, should I keep going with music? Or should I quit it? Or whatever I was totally out of it. So yeah, I'm going to go with that to be honest. Okay. Okay. Yeah. Cool. Yeah. Pretty good less than I learned, too. Thank you, man.

"All day long. Okay. That's cool. Yeah. Yeah. So if your life was a meal, what would it look like? So there was funny ever since it started. The question. I think it would have been a pizza. Yeah. Yeah. To be honest, I do love my life. So any kind to be honest, but the mozzarella one is really good. So who was the funniest person you've met? This one is this one is good. I don't want it to sound cliche, but if I'm being a 100% honest, my girl is the funniest person I've ever met in my whole entire life. And, you know, to me a sense of humor is one of the main qualities I look for in a person, even if it's just for a normal conversation or a friendship or whatever. But she's literally the funnest person I've ever met. And she's also the main motivator behind me doing stuff. Because, you know, like every other person, I get discouraged. Every once in a while, I start out and everything, so I start rethinking my whole life. But she's really supportive and she knows just what to say the whole time. And she's really, really funny. Cool. Cool? Yeah. Yeah. Opened a business. What kind of business would it be? Actually, I've been in the marketplace business for a little bit of time now, and I would like to, I would like to own a company where I provide employees for companies. You know, just like, I know there's a lot of them who do it indeed or whatever. But I would like to do that because you'd be doing everybody a favor. You'd be fine in jobs for the people who don't have it and you'd be completing the jobs of the people who wanted completed, you know? So yeah, I actually do that. I would do that. Right. Yeah. That sounds like a very good business model. If you were a bug, what bug would you be?

"So their life turned out a little bit worse than they thought or any kind of any kind of social topic, actually. In any way, plus the underground music also has the battle rap element. You have to be very fast and coming up with quick wit and stuff to say about the other person. So that's really, really cool to be honest. And the mainstream the mainstream music is doing it for the monument. If it makes money, it makes sense. So that's the whole idea behind mainstream music. Okay. That's all they care about. If it makes a zeros behind the numbers, then they're cool with it. They don't care if the product is stupid. But that's why I always put on the ground first. Okay. Okay. I'm not going to lie. Yeah. Like way more than nature. That's good. That's good. Yeah, thank you for that though. So what do you think is the best way to travel? You mean like transport wise? Yeah, Trump put wise. Well, I don't know, there's something appealing about trains to be honest. If I'm being honest, there's places like Switzerland, for example, and if you travel those places by train, you're going to be amazed amazed. You're going to want to do that every single day. And yeah, I'm going to go with trains to be honest. I'm going to go, but I'm going to go with the trains in the areas that don't have many people. I mean, I hate crowded places. Yeah. I come down to New York. You have to train here. I actually see some videos and I close the browser really quick. So yeah, no. Yeah. Yeah, I go between two. Especially the ones that I go at high speeds like high-speed rail. Like some of them are actually faster than conventional commercial aircraft. There are some high speed trains in Italy.

"Yeah. I fully. What is the most craziest outrageous thing you want to achieve? I think I want to invent the next the next big thing, but I just don't know what yet. I haven't figured it out what it is. Still. But I want to have a service that people use that makes everybody's lives easier. And he can become a revolution. I mean, it is a big dream, but you never know. Even if it is for a small location, even if it is just for Albania, that's cool. I don't care, but it has to be something that nobody else has ever done, and it makes people's lives easier. So that's what I want to achieve. That's nice. What kind of so what kind of music do you often listen to? Well, I've been an R&B fan since since 5 years old, but I'm still stuck on that 2000s RMB. I don't like the new R&B has much. But I still listen to the old R&B. I mean, hip hop, of course, for sure. But also R&B of that. Okay. Yeah. I do love a bit in R&B, especially the 2000s, not survive. That's like the best era for everything. Clothing. Totally, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, movies and I don't know, even the flip phones was such a good area. I totally missed it. Playing 2D games. I think they made a model. Yeah, yeah, they did. But still, it doesn't have that old touch. Because even the modern day flip phone, it's a touch screen. So, you know, it's still new. It's just a selling point. Right, cool. Yeah. Do you have any pets? Oh yeah, I have a Labrador. I have a golden retriever. Oh, that's nice. Her name is her name is Emma. Let's do it. Cool. What was the weirdest nickname you were given? So this is actually a somehow funny story. I used Kirk as a kid. I mean, if you chase it back to an old Anglo sang sonic language, it means church because I'm Catholic. And the Kirk stood for church and for believing in God and believing when things are getting rough, et cetera, et cetera. And so I started working at a call center a few years back and they told me to use not my real name, but some other name. For the work. So I go Kirk and they we also need a last name and I can't remember this. I can come up with the last name and I just took it a screen and one of the branch managers last name was mask. So I say, okay, it's Kirk mask. And the guy says, oh, so you know the manager and I'm like, dude, you just told me to create the name on the spot.

"It'll come back to aren't you. Yeah, yeah, that's actually true. So yeah, you need to be more careful. But if you somehow manage to mess up, you can delete the track. It's more possible that nobody's going to find out about that track. If you ever blow up, if you delete it in the early stages. Right, that's true. If you got rid of it. Yeah? So yeah. You've got a smaller chip on your shoulder. And when you're writing, that's good. That's actually good, because you need that peace of mind. And you need to see clearly. Yeah? Absolutely. Yeah, and if you've got a deal with a hundred phone calls a day by managers by promoters by deals, et cetera, et cetera. I don't think there's much. I mean, that's why people, when they get too famous, they just do mainstream songs. They get a beat, they put on a 16 bar that it's stupid as hell and we've heard it everywhere. And then they just push product because I don't think they actually have the time to sit down and make a good lyrical track. And yeah, having time to do the creative process in peace and taking a year to do that, it's actually pretty cool. Yeah? Yeah, I don't know. Yeah. What do you do in your free time? Actually, I try to have as less free time that I can. I have this marketplace for jobs that I created. I have another marketplace for restaurants in Florida, actually I haven't kick started that one yet. I do YouTube. I have a gaming channel. I do music. I try to try to cover up as much basis as I can. As much as I can. So workhorse, huh? Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's good to be Jack of all trades. It's good to learn. To learn more about everything, because you never know what tomorrow brings. I mean, when I got shifted, when Corona came in, we all got shifted to home working, it's like nothing actually changed for me because I already had programming in freelance and skills. So all I had to do was just sit on my chair and just do my job and get paid the very same way that I did when I got out. Only this time I'm not spending on gas money or whatever. So it's good to have a few skills in a bag. Yeah, absolutely nice. Totally. What was the strangest dream you've had? Strangers during my bed. I keep seeing this journey where I go out on stage and everybody keeps hitting me with tomatoes and cans. Energy drink cans and stuff like that and they just want me off them. No. Yeah. Yeah. I know, it's got a heavy hit excessive, but at least they don't kill me. I managed to get out of the get out of the concert without with that hidden ground, but that's weird. And I think it reflects the fact that no matter how big you are, no matter how small you are, you're always going to think about you're always going to care about people's opinions. And when people bring you up, they can take you down just as easily. It is an actual fear, not only a scary dream, but it's actually

"Okay. Yeah. That's good. Yeah. Totally. So how often do you perform? Well, actually, it depends when it was the Corona time. I didn't perform at all. I actually did some online concerts in some websites. But I mean, it doesn't really it's not as much fulfilling as you hope it would be. But right now I'm actually focusing on only trying to find the right people to work with and have a have a good album to come out. The first two mixtapes that I did, I actually pushed the production. So it wasn't the perfect songs in it. And I hate that because it should have been. But in this album, I spent a whole year working on it. I haven't released a single music in a single track in the last year at all. I've written a 180 songs. And from those, I'm only going to use 12. So I made sure everyone would be perfect for this album. So afterwards, yeah, I'm going to, I think, this summer, I'm going to be kicking up a little bit during the show. I'm going to be all out. I'm going to be performing everywhere, but you know, everywhere, speaking local venues and small stuff, of course. Or maybe opening up opening up for bigger ads because that's actually a really good way to go. Great. Yeah, that's amazing. And is there any big name venues that you really want to perform more? Any country you are to perform in well, if I'm being completely honest, U.S. would be the best, the best choice ever. When it comes to any genre of music, to be honest. The U.S. will have over every other country all the time will be will be the push that they give the movie industries and the music industry. It's amazing. And I mean, even the underground rappers there make a lot a lot. I mean, it's not just about the money. It's mostly about also being a recognized and having a respect because here I can a couple stop me in the streets and be like, I don't know, I don't care who you are, but if you're an underground artist in the U.S., they'd be like, oh, hey, you're Kirk. I've heard something in the radio or whatever. Underground rappers don't get played in a radio here in Albania. Okay. But yeah. If you had to. So if you could work with any huge artist who you want to work with. I don't know if you've heard of the slaughterhouse. It's always crooked eye and Joe Biden and dual roots. They used to be assigned to shady records to M and M therefore rubbers. I think I've kind of heard a slaughterhouse. Yeah, I think it was kind of right. Yeah. Yeah. It's one of them. It's called Joel Ortiz. I followed his music ever since 2008, I think. He's one of my favorite artists and yeah, if I could work with him, that would be like, all right, I can die now. It's totally cool. I did everything that I ever wanted to do. But if you're talking big, big names, I mean, I think Eminem would be the way to go. I mean, it's never going to happen, but still one can hope.

"Alona. And then this episode I've brought on regular Eric Taylor. And as for our guest, he's from Albania. He's a rapper and programmer. Well, more specifically, he's an underground rapper. We saw the educated has made his living as a programmer and developing freelancer. Ladies and gentlemen, I'll give you such mere printing. Correctly. Hi, everyone. I hope to hear that. Yeah, I think what I would do that, yeah, good. So how's life? Well, it's going pretty good. It's stable, I guess. I mean, there's always better, but you've got to make the world you've got. Yeah? Great. Yeah. Have you been up too much recently? Actually, I'm going to process of producing my third album. So I've been all over the place, plus I've had some clients on my on my other job and have been I've been not sleeping correctly lately. Okay. Okay. What kind of music do you produce or make? Well, most of the time, I get other producers to work on my music, but I actually produce some of the tracks on each album, they're my two of them three of them. They're solid all over. I do the track. I do the instrumental adrenergic mastering. The recording process, everything. And well, it's mostly youth related stuff. Disruptive generation issues that we face on everyday life. How hard it is for someone to come up from zero from literal zero and there's people that want to hear that. So when I make it. Okay. Interesting. And what got you into music? Well, I actually always had a had a thing for it since 5th great, I think. I used to write lyrics in my notebook instead of paying attention to school. And it just stuck with me. And then you meet people, they push you into doing stuff that they think that it's good for you. And sometimes it's good to listen to them because at times we don't take the chances that we need to take unless somebody is pushing us from behind. I'm really glad for that. Yeah, that's great. Yeah. Yeah. So do you have a go other places outside of Albania? Actually, I mean, yeah, if it's for traveling, but not from music. At least not yet. Okay. Not yet.
Moving From Action to Administration With LTG Jerry Boykin
"You as a man of action. I mean, you're just a gregarious guy. You love big, you talk, you're there. You want to be an action. That's what about you the force to start with. When you started moving toward the more administrative roles, how did that for someone like you how did that make was that different? Was that almost a more difficult challenge? Oh, yeah. I mean, it always is, especially when you're sent from being on the front lines with the Delta force up to The Pentagon. You know, that's like being thrown off to San Francisco bridge or something. But you know what, what was good about that was, I. Actually was only only the staff therefore a little while, and I got sent over to the CIA. So I spent a couple of years at CIA running covert actions there to CIA. And so it kind of put me back in the fight, so to speak, and that was a great assignment. And I got to tell you, don't ever say anything bad about CIA around me, because they are, they have some of the finest professionals in the government. And then when I came back for my second tour at The Pentagon, I wound up going over to the Balkans running a task force there to capture war criminals, remember after the Dayton accords, there had been an agreement that all of the war and factions would turn in the people that were identified as war criminals, but they didn't do it. So I was running a task force out of Sarajevo that was capturing war criminals and that was that was a great assignment. I mean, I really enjoyed that. And then I left that job after about a year and came back to take over all the green berets, but I got to tell you, I just kept getting put back into those positions where I could feel like I was still part of the game.
Colonel Douglas Macgregor Reacts to Sen. Graham's 2017 Russia Speech
"Colonel, I want to play cut 72. It reinforces something you said where the west was the one that was pushing towards the border of Russia. This is Lindsey Graham and John McCain and Lindsey Graham giving a rather enthusiastic speech saying, we're going to take the fight to Putin. We're going to go straight to the border. We're going to play offense. Play cut 72. Your fight is our fight. 2017 will be the year of offense. All of us will go back to Washington. And we will push the case against Russia. Enough of a Russian aggression. It is time for them to pay a heavier price. I believe you will win. I am convinced you will win and we will do everything we can to provide you with what you need to win. Colonel, your reaction. This was very dangerous, obviously. And they had a receptive audience unfortunately in Ukraine given its tragic history. And I think this actually has its roots in the 1990s in Bosnia Herzegovina and then subsequently in Kosovo and the attacks that we launched against the Serbs, which were aimed ultimately to eject Russia for all intents and purposes from the Balkans and Europe to marginalize Russia. Russia was weak. We were strong and we made no secret of our desire to marginalize them as a power. All of this is connected. And it's unnecessary. I couldn't understand why we even continued to maintain forces in Europe once the wall came down because there was no threat from Russia and frankly today there isn't one when the president of Finland was asked why he wanted to join NATO. He made it very clear that he didn't feel as written by Russia in the least. And I don't think that's the case with anybody right now in Europe to truly understand contemporary Russia.

I mean, of the Windows on arm on the Mac. An early on. I don't have much need. No, that's okay. I know you're here. I don't have much need to use Windows. I'm happy to say what I've probably not on my M1. Did you get an M1, did you get the studio max or the ultra? What did you get, Mike? I'm very happy with my max. I don't see leases ultra being a whole heck of a lot faster. Well, I got this Dell is going to be a Windows machine until I got the max. Yeah, that's what I that's what I'm using. I like it a lot. You're right. It's great. I just don't feel a lot of reason to put. Well, I guess if you wanted to use access, oh, Doug, you got the ultra. Wow, yeah, a little overkill. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. I think also, apple's huge lead now with M1 is not going to last forever. Well, there's Scott Wilkinson. Hello, Scott. Hello, Leo. I have a question to ask you. Yes. So Joanna does. A singing teacher or a voice coach. You know, there's a good question there. 'cause I need a voice coach. Oh, she is a voice coach. Okay, I want to hire her. Exactly what she is. So this is how it came up. So my daughter has nodes. She went to an ENT. When she was in high school, they did Balkan singing. That really hurt her voice. And now that she's doing stand up, but she's always been very talkative anyway. And she's got nodes. She's trying desperately to voice rest and she's going to end up going to a voice coach. But I as Joanna's specialty actually. Well, and I'll refer to Joanna too. But it made me think, I've never done anything along those lines. And you know what I'm concerned about? Bad symptoms or anything. I don't have nodes. And I don't get horse, and I think I'm okay. But I also have no training. And I thought, maybe be time to pay attention to that, especially as I get older, 'cause what I don't want, you hear it all the time, as people age, their voice gets thin. Oh, absolutely. And is that avoidable? Yes, it is. But it's such a common problem. I want to keep using this is my only ability. I realized how foolish I have been, you know, not taking this seriously over the last 40 years..
Sen. Cotton: Vladimir Putin's Intention Is Being 'the Next Great Czar'
"The killing people they're destroying the infrastructure of Ukraine It's all out war against this country We have NATO countries right on the border Serious Eastern European NATO countries Romania Hungary Poland you've got the Balkan states You've got others And can you imagine Latin repute and he takes over Ukraine here he is sitting on the border and what's he going to do for the next ten years sit there and pick his nose What's he going to do So I think we should add that he also has de facto control of Belarus as well The main effort against Kyiv is coming from Belarus not technically Russian territory but I think now it's fair to say especially over the last year when he helped Alexander Lukashenko to Bela Russian dictator still the election that Belarus is de facto now part of Russia once again And this is part of Vladimir Putin's long-term ambitions Mark As you know this is nothing to do with Ukraine membership in NATO that was not somehow approaching There is no relevant deadline There's no plan even for Ukraine to join NATO It wasn't about military exercises on Ukrainian soil We don't conduct those If you just listen to what Vladimir Putin said Monday night in that speech Well for that matter Mark as I'm sure you did read the essay he published last summer which is entitled on the historic unity of the Russians and the Ukrainians You can see that this is all about reassembling the greater Russian Empire that he has the ambition to become the next great Tsar in the mold of Peter the great or Catherine the Great And he can not in his mind be either Russians are have greater Russia without Belarus and Ukraine

"But I also think that the aggressiveness that's occurring now is also because of the fecklessness in the Oval Office It's not just the southern border They don't think Biden's willing to do a hell of a lot And I worry I worry James what if they do cut through Ukraine and they say wow there's the Balkans over there Let's dip our toe in there What is Biden going to do I don't think he's going to do much He's now bending over backwards for the Iranians It's unbelievable to even watch this So there are actually already stirring up issues in the Balkans And the problem all right let's slow down that second They're stirring up in the Balkans Tell us what you mean by that That's a big statement Yeah so Putin has these little packets all over Europe like little landmines So he's occupied part of Moldova's occupied part of Georgia's occupied part of Ukraine And he has his fingers in the conflict in the bottom between Serbia and Kosovo and embossing a host of covina where the Russians have dramatic influence He can push any one of those buttons any time he wants And they were all strategically built for the same reason to give Putin the ability to push into and destabilize Europe whenever he saw set This is not a secret In fact Donald Trump knew this There's a reason why he sent rich grinnell into the Balkans There's a reason why he gave javelins to the Ukrainians There's a reason why he engaged with the Georgians He was and there's a reason why nothing happened in the four years on Donald Trump's watch Trump made it very clear he would not stand for this and Putin never even

"balkan" Discussed on AI Today Podcast: Artificial Intelligence Insights, Experts, and Opinion
"I guess, you know, one of the things I would say is that some countries were we were very impressed with. Because they were very thoughtful about how to apply these technologies from cradle to grave for their entire population. Workforce management for better government provided services for industrial development to, you know, wellness, healthcare and taking care of the elderly. And some countries and I will call out Japan notably. Of having a very comprehensive strategy. And very thoughtful. We thought the EU was really trying to wrestle with the privacy issues and how should and they were being very, again, given the history of what took place and World War II, you can understand their concern. But they also were being very thoughtful. So I think every country is trying to graft their cultural frameworks with the use of this technology and how to apply it. Now, I think from a company point of view, actually, before I get to the companies, from a research point of view, direct some folks who believe that look, the race is not in creating new algorithms, you know? Of course, many of the algorithms are going to be open-source anyway. The race is in applications and in data. Who has the most data and who can produce the most kinds of applications that the AI is going to work? There are others who feel like we're still early in this Balkan. But the reason why we need all these data is because basically ML is kind of statistically stupid. And in other words, statistical models that in the neural net models, right? We will yield a class of results, but in the classic garbage in garbage out, you just have a really efficient way to process lots of garbage to make really bad decisions very efficiently. So I think the U.S. is kind of in the middle, right? We see that we are developing key technologies, but we're like stage three of an 8 stage race. And we're a long way from general AI. We're still applying it in a very narrow way. We don't have totally detesting frameworks, right? To certification frameworks, the things that we need to build trust around these algorithms doses still in the making and we have to invest in those kinds of things. Now, the company levels, you know, I think people are being very creative in the usage of these technologies. I mean, you just got to open up.
Kurt Schlichter: From the Gulf War to the LA Riots
"And way back with colonel Kurtz later. Okay, so you're back from the Gulf War. You've just started law school a little bit more mature than the people around you and give us how things proceed from that point cut. Well, it was interesting. I was in kind of a strange place. I would party harder than anybody else in law school. Because an army guy, you could, 'cause you knew how to and you could do it, you could survive it. I could and, you know, I mean, I'm back from the goal. I'm not with any other military people. I think there were a total four out of 404 veterans out 400 in my client. One guy had 20 years ago been in the air force. There was another guy who'd been a seal. And it was strange. And I didn't, I didn't really stop until about 6 months later when I joined the California National Guard. And I don't know why I did. I just, I guess I just wanted to be back with, you know, at least once a year, once a month, a few days a month, be with guys who kind of knew what I did. And I found myself in the last angel's riot. Which you said, what you said was scarier than being deployed to the Balkans, right? Oh, God. Much, much more so. The LA riots, I was living in Pasadena. I look at this thing and we weren't expecting to get deployed. When I had actually joined up, I'm standing in the operations room at the Inglewood armor in Burbank, and I said, so what happens if we get mobilized and the full-time guys just left? 20 some years later as commander in that armory, I would deploy a company standing in that same place. I gave the order to set up a go. But at that time, I call into the United States, look, I'm watching people get the help now of them in TV. Are we getting deployed? Nah, they're not going to call us off. I go, oh, okay. And having enough experience in the army, I immediately packed my stock.

NY Rep. Claudia Tenney Shares Her Backstory and Connection to the Former Yugoslavia
"First welcome back to our one on one end studio in discussion with New York's congresswoman Claudia teddy. For those who aren't familiar with your backstory. I didn't even know it until you came in today. You said you mentioned my book, and then you said you sold me on TV and you bought my book, which talks about my parents who escaped Hungary under communism and then mentions what was happening next door in Yugoslavia. Share with us who aren't familiar or who aren't from your district, your connection to the Balkans in the Eastern Europe. I'm not of Yugoslavia in descent or Balkan descent, but I did actually see you and I said, oh, look, you know, because one of my jobs when I worked at the former Yugoslav consulate, which is obviously gone because of the war. We're still look for people in the Balkans, people in the region, and I just, you know, anyone with a sort of the accident, even though Hungarian is not similar to several creations to different route language, I just said, oh, who's this guy? Oh, he's talking about hungry. Interesting because of all that was happening and Yugoslavia being so unique, technically not behind the iron curtain. Tito was able to keep him out of the common form. So I went to Yugoslavia as a student in 1981, 40 years ago, just for a study group and ended up falling in love with the place to just so diverse and interesting and continued to stay there. Work for the consulate worked on the Olympics in Sarajevo in 1984. Learn the language, you know, just continue to go back and then obviously through the war, it was a tough time for me. I had friends from every part of the country, the former years of everywhere. Because we all worked in the consulate together, and so that's been my connection and just living in a country that was communist and then seeing the transformation since the war and them trying to emerge as a market economy, and reading your book where you hear about you're talking about some of the things that happened and how a lot of Hungarians were trying to cross through Yugoslavia and get to freedom and how Tito basically turned them in. And they read the benevolent dictator who was Marshall, Joseph pizza, right? Right, yeah, so called benevolent dictator, and that's where I, you know, I think we're on this moment in American history where people should learn that when they say we have communism we've never just done it quite right, and we had a benevolent dictator in Tito, not a benevolent dictator. Tito had a dissident camp where people were tortured and killed on a barren island in the Adriatic Sea. So it's all these communists. And he played and he played the nationalities. Right. Slovenes vice the Croatians, the Croatians versus the Serbs. Yeah, and technically he was Croatian, but first and foremost he was a communist. Right. He was able to bridge the gap and keep an allied relationship with the Americans and with kind of keeping everyone at bay to maintain this sort of artificial union of these countries and Yugoslavia, which wants Tito died. You know, they devolved into war within about ten
$7.5 Billion Tax Payer Dollars for Electric School Busses?
"Why are senators and congressmen that represent red states? That have massive oil and natural gas production, going along with the following. The infrastructure package will spend $7.5 billion for electrical vehicle charging stations, with which the administration says is critical to accelerating the use of electrical vehicles and to curb climate change. It would also be available for a $5 billion of purchase for electric school buses and hybrids, reducing reliance on school buses that run on diesel fuel. So, for the representatives from states like Pennsylvania, like Brian Fitzpatrick, or from West Virginia, like David McKinley, or from North Dakota, why is there a support of an agenda that will destroy the oil and natural gas production from the Marcellus shale? To the Balkan, isn't that a major job producer in your state? Modernizing the electric grid. By the way, this makes Pete Buttigieg, one of the most powerful people in Washington, D.C.. You are giving him a $1.2 trillion as the head of the Department of Transportation to allocate towards his green energy cronies as he sees it as he sees fit.

The 20th Century Was Shaped by War
"We'd witnessed the twentieth century. Shaped by wall is one individual. So wittily put it. The twentieth century began in the balkans and ended in the balkans it began with the facination of archduke ferdinand by governor low prank hip. An amicus serbian nationalist which through various ententes various arrangements of the earliest twentieth century diplomacy triggered will will won a war in which a whole generation was lost the fruit of europe america only involved in the last few moments of that war it was the european nations that lost the cream of the young men in the trenches of fair done in those no-man's-land filled with bob wire and machine gun nests with more than six million killed but it was the war of mechanized proportions in which predominantly the military's paid the brunt. It was the young men of the armies of each side. That were mowed down just a few years later. The great war the first world war was out don in a conflict that spans the globe.

"Balkans Correspondent Candy Lonnie, residents of cities in the region have become grimly accustomed to choking through the winter months as air quality plummets. Capitals like Belgrade, Sarajevo and Scorpio have all spent time at the top of the Air Visual index, which ranks the world's most polluted places. The grassroots Bank Watch network says that coal fired power stations bear a large part of the blame. They're just 18 such facilities in the six countries of the western Balkans. But collectively, they emit 2.5 times more sulfur dioxide than the total produced by more than 200 similar plants in European Union countries. The human consequences are severe. Only eight countries in the world have a higher pollution related death rate than Serbia. Meanwhile, Bosnia, Kosovo and North Macedonia are all in Europe's top five for particulate pollution. Bank Watch says there's a simple solution. Power stations in the western Balkans should comply with EU emissions regulations or close and it says EU countries can play their part by ending energy imports from polluting power plants. Try to Lonnie. The 20th anniversary of the 9 11 attacks falls this week whilst the abiding images are of the collapsing twin towers of the World Trade Center or the smoldering ruins at the Pentagon in Washington. One of the most enduring stories is that of the fourth hijacked plane. United Airlines flight 93. Now you may have seen the Paul Greengrass directed movie. But in Shanksville, Penn, Pennsylvania, there's a memorial to the 40 passengers who seized back control of that. Played well. The president of Friends of Flight 93 Donna Gibson has been speaking to the BBC's Paddy O'Connell. I do believe that their intention was to take control of the plane for me represents 40 people who said not today, not on our watch. We're going to take control. We're not going to let you take one more plane. United 93 that traffic was one o'clock, 12, Miles east 1370 negative contact. We're looking united 93, You know 40 individuals who did not know one another had less than 30 minutes to decide to find out. What was going on to come up with a plan and to act is just extraordinary. About two hours later in New York as the BBC's dazed and confused Wall Street correspondent.

You know it's it's still you know domestic coach or domestic first class. But i think it's a nice version of that. And the way i i think they did a good guy. Yeah i mean it's it's it sounds like it. Sounds like it's going to be a nice system to use like easy easy to use. It's intuitive it's fast. But i would say one thing. I noticed from pictures. Yeah they're using the the first class seats that they started installing on the airbus fleet. awhile back and have they've now become like the standard united. I eat with the marble tray table. Or what have you I'm not a huge fan of that. See i i don't i guess i don't mind the seat. I don't like the tray table in the middle console. Very much at all I think it's art. Yes i as. I say i. I think it's hard to get in and out of the seat For the person in the window Just because of the way it's laid out like that the little drink colder piece sticks out so much that you have to kinda squeeze yourself around it to get out of seat. And i've just i've just thought it's it's kind of one of those things like someone's got to be watching this when they fly first class go. This is not good. Yeah all that's also function. Probably pitchers been introduced furniture to over the years and yet other things. It's up that same little drink holder the water bottle holder in the center console also now has the screen remote. There's actually and i plus. There's a hand like the little remote control for the screens and it's not it's not only touchscreen so that's something that doesn't take up space or anything sort of embedded into the frame. That's if you put a water bottle there then you can't get to the road so now interest- interesting yeah is it is it Why i'm guessing. It's wired so it's kinda like what they had on long haul flights that same on the the other thing. I'll say in balkan rose first class. The screens are mounted on the wall. Economy there in the armrest so catch the bulkhead. Whatever rose seven or whatever you know they call it now off. That armrest will not go off on new plans where it does onto those in.

the chemist tutoring William it's been great to have you on the show thank you for taking the time thank you so much with each passing week we're getting closer to what officials with the state say will eventually become the new normal the reopening is underway here in Massachusetts and this weekend we're getting more details about phase two right now cities and towns all over the Commonwealth are trying to find the best way to help people get back out but also water routes stay socially distance to and try to stop any further spread of the virus over in Somerville the launching a pilot program called shared streets in fact it's already under way with us on the show to talk about it right now is a Somerville mayor Joe Curtatone he's so mayor we've seen ideas like this in other cities across the country and even around the world when did you and your team come up with the thought of bringing it shared streets to Somerville well our mobility team my community you know stakeholders in the city of we have all been working on a really broad approach to understand how we can recapture of much of the public rom you know we truly believe that if you plan a city for cars that's what you gonna get and part of our goals around sustainability healthy living and improving our economy is to again create more opportunities more mall but more options of different options for mobility around Bach and actually walking biking not to mention public transportation but she is St Patrick's began on also as an additional measure to help in aiding contactless pickup and social distancing during this pandemic all right so then where are you for starting to roll this out so in an effort to provide more walking and biking was at a loss for the social distance and and the roots will also connect to essential services like food distribution sites medical facilities grocery stores the first room which we already have up and running next winter hill in the east in the some of the neighborhoods includes some of the public schools distribution sites at the hilly school in the summer community schools one of our food pantries on Broadway which projects you stop and shop in another school that have won a school and they will add subsequent routes are two of the summer and what happened is this phasing approach of giving the city's mobility staff time to evaluate each road in and make changes as needed we're not talking about necessarily shutting down major avenues like Broadway or you know all the streets leading into Davis square something we're talking about smaller streets or is this really going to be a situation where you could shut down some of the bigger roots eventually we made when we are we are looking at our streets to where would implement measures to make it currently only for people walking and biking but these measures are sheer you know we're we're just waiting for the traffic we are you know emergency vehicles of people live in the neighborhood going to deliver services if we allow for that capacity for that need but you know it's a motorcycle a user's history messages about it they should drive slowly expect to see people on the street and these risks are then people walking roller R. rollerblading biking should remain alert and aware then make room for these allowed vehicles on and where they were adding safety measures such as signage impossible barriers to alert all users to the shared use of the streets you've got this first shared streets route that's already up and running any feedback so far on this how's it going so far yeah initial feedback is good and again we're collecting data and information it's it's interesting I'd submit that we're gonna find as we move forward and people experience they don't want more of this and I want more than on a permanent basis again we plan of city for cars and automobiles that's what you get you know it he has plenty of examples where they even when people try to address highway congestion the Phillies a planning in the past we increase the lane think about asking how I was in and out and walking gestione you know so we we were trying to and we are taking in some of the like we've always done a very deliberate research based on informed approach to improve the mobility options by city and during this pandemic are we are trying to make sure we connect them to opportunities access to food because food access and security are been difficult for many population we're doing with the lens will look into a lens of equity you know some of the only four point one square miles but we're still a city haves and have nots in many people live in areas where you know man made out highway infrastructures around them and don't they don't have access or safe access to those food sources are perhaps a park or other public space so you know launching in these neighborhoods it was the right approach when you mentioned that a couple seconds ago I also think of the fact that the Green Line extension it's coming up through Somerville as well and you're taking the steps as the city to get people out of cars how are these moves going over to you have any any naysayers that thank you know transitioning Somerville from a car based city might not work because you know I've driven to your city I I live in Boston and I've driven through your city many many times in the middle of rush hour and I see all the people walking and I see other people biking and I'm like why am I not to take home a lot faster yeah you know our goals are on public health I'm creating a local sustainable economy our goals are my mobility instructor systemically goes to be carbon neutral are all based on science research and community collaboration and participation these are all value initiatives on behalf of the community so well there is some angst from some folks not knowing how to go as the experience it whether it's issued street pilot program we're doing now or the dedicated twenty four seven bus lane that we implemented several months ago went to hell all the efforts to improve and add mobility options and improve mobility service like buses and and and with an eye on you can show the most vaunted by community on their needs and lack of activity or dressed or the Green Line extension as you mentioned which will take twenty five thousand what a vehicle trucks are parked city per day are endorsed by the cities in the community's long term goals and in in dreams and then all encapsulated in our summer vision plan which is the city's comprehensive plan how we want to grow as a community not just the physical things we wanna build but the value initiatives about around mobility among public health around diversity inclusion I want to stand ability and much much more all right beautiful mereka Tony thank you for taking the time nice talking to you take care unfortunately we're out of time right now but the mayor and I weren't able to speak for a little while longer about not just shared streets but the corona virus as well so if you're interested in that and any of our previous episodes don't forget it's all up.
