Michele Bachmann Discusses the Plot to Undermine American Sovereignty
"The person that has really pulled the fire alarm, the person that has been able to warn us about what's happening at the World Health Organization. Is Michelle bachmann. There's a clip with Michelle bachmann, and the great Steve Bannon, going back and forth about this that has been sent to me probably by 30 people in the last 24 hours. And one of the most effective interviews that I've seen in quite some time warning, the American population of what's happening very soon in Geneva Switzerland. Is what Michelle bachmann said on that program with us right now is Michelle herself. To be able to walk us through what we're just getting into. And the World Health Organization meeting, Michelle, welcome to the program. First of all, thank you for really signaling the alarm here. How do you learn about it and get into the details? What are we about to do? We being America in Geneva, Switzerland, if we don't stop it. Hi, Charlie. I just want to bring greetings to you for regent university too. We adore you. We love everything you're doing and you may not know this, but I'm the adviser for turning point for turning point USA on the university campus. So I'm a big fan of YouTube. So thanks for having me on. But the issue that we're talking about one is one that just came up recently. No one should feel bad if they don't know about it. This issue was meant by design to run under the radar. The Biden administration has amendments that they took to the United Nations to the world health assembly. The healthcare arm of the United Nations is the World Health Organization. But the World Health Organization's governing body is the world health assembly. They meet once a year in Geneva Switzerland. They're going to meet beginning starting this Sunday, May 22nd to the 28th, and they take up their business. Agenda item 16.2 this year are the proposed Biden amendments to the 2005 international health rules. Those are the rules that we in the United States agreed to beginning for international health beginning back in 2005. This is not a treaty. There is a proposed global pandemic treaty that's being worked on right now that will be voted on in 2024. That's not what this
'The Bodies of Others' Author Naomi Wolf Calls It Like It Is
"I'm talking to Naomi wolf, the new book, the bodies of others, the new authoritarians COVID-19 and the war against the human. Naomi, this is all so extraordinary what we're talking about. And part of what makes it extraordinary is there's been such a shaking of everything that we're seeing new alliances. I mean, the idea that you would be on Steve Bannon's show, you know, but I'm saying it's so fascinating to me that there are some people simply willing to see what is and care about what's important and understand that we're in a war, a strange war ideological war. You and I both have friends on the left, people who've worked at The New York Times and on and on and on from the world that we grew up in graduating from Yale in the 80s and all that kind of stuff. And part of what's mortifying to me is to see them going along with this narrative. But at least equally impressive is the tiny handful of folks like you who are simply calling it like it is. And so what is that like for you, though, to see things that we once took for granted, that The New York Times is a great institutional organization. Yes, they lean left. But they're going to call balls and strikes. They're journalists. What has that been like for you? Because it's horrifying. Yeah, I mean, Eric, I agree with you. It's absolutely terrifying and disorienting. And it's sometimes it's hard to absorb this level of nefarious results from people that I love and respect and institutions I used to trust. You know, like you, I kind of feel like this is a time when, you know, I kind of feel like God is shaking every human institution. And what we're seeing is just what you describe. You know, many people are going along with literally lies and satanic
J. D. Vance: I Don't Really Care What Happens in Ukraine
"That's a tight race in the Republican primary In Ohio But here it is Here's what he said On Bannon's show podcast I guess Cut 6 go At the end of the day we serve to defend our own country And I think it's ridiculous that we're focused on this border in Ukraine I got to be honest with you I don't really care what happens to you frame one way or another I do care about the fact that in my community right now the leading cause of death among 18 to 45 year olds is Mexican fentanyl that's coming across the southern border I'm sick of Joe Biden focusing on the border of a country I don't care about while he lets the border of his own country become a total war zone Okay is that the choice You either support securing our border or you support securing the border with Ukraine and Russia Is that it Now isn't that one of the dumbest things you've ever heard I've talked about this before Can you imagine a president who cares about securing our southern border And would be supporting Ukraine I can imagine one I can imagine many I can imagine Reagan I can imagine Trump because that's what he did You can't have this kind of bifurcated thinking process Does he care what China takes out of this or what he ran takes out of this
The Washington Post Failed to Investigate Hunter's Hard Drive
"The post review draws in part on an analysis of a copy Said to be of the hard drive of a laptop computer then Hunter Biden purportedly dropped off at a Delaware repair shop and never came to collect Now this is amazing Here the poor New York Post is waving it around Look what we've got Look what we've got And they're trashed and they're attacked by these other media corporations The New York Post could have said here we have it and did and they Washington Post could have said I mean The Washington Post could have said they look We'd like to take a look at that but they didn't they trashed it The laptop was turned over to the FBI in December 2019 according to documents reviewed by the post And a copy of the drive was obtained by Rudy Giuliani and other advisers to then president Trump a few months before the 2020 election After the New York Post began publishing reports when the conscience of the laptop in October 2020 The Washington Post repeatedly asked Giuliani and Republican strategist Stephen K Bannon for a copy of the data to review before the election But the request rebuffed or ignored Well why did you ask them Why didn't you ask the New York Post Why did you carry the New York Post stories Look how they're covering up even their own tracks
Boris Epshteyn Gives Us the Latest Updates on Steve Bannon's War Room
"You're doing Sterling work with my old boss, Steve Bannon on the war room almost every single day. Give us give us the latest raffensperger said he's gonna do some investigation. What do I listen across the nation need to know? The most important thing that happened last week was the nuclear earthquake that happened in Wisconsin with judge gableman. Right. What he laid out, not just the overwhelming fraud done by Zuckerberg by Democrats by mistreating by misusing ballot drop boxes and stealing the election of Wisconsin in 2020. But he also laid out what could be done about it, which in appendix two he goes chapter reverse on these certification, which we've talked about. And judge gave them who's a former Wisconsin state Supreme Court Justice. Laid out the constitutional common law and electoral law underpinnings saying, in his belief in his estimation, if you have proof on its face a fraud and election, there's absolutely a cure for that fraud and under article two of the constitution that would be the state legislature's decertifying. The state decides in the legislature to de certify their state's election results. Correct. And then what? And then that's an open question because that's never happened before. So the question is, then what? And he said that if it's just Wisconsin with ten electoral votes, nothing happens. But if it's Wisconsin, Arizona and say Georgia and then those are decertified and take it away from the president numbers change, completely. Now, he points to other elections Marxist stinson, which was an election in Pennsylvania, elections in North Carolina where you had a candidate sitting who had won through fraud and the election was overturned and the other candidate took the seat. Okay, those are not presidential elections.
Lee Smith: Left Doesn't Have Foreign Enemies, Only Political Enemies
"I watched an interview did I think it was with Bannon It might have been a war room I don't remember Yeah it was war room A couple of times this week yeah You did and you said something that blew my mind because it was so spot on It reminded me of something David Horowitz says often You said listen and forgive me if I'm not getting it verbatim correctly but you said something like the left doesn't have foreign enemies The left just has political enemies And I thought holy Moses this guy is so correct The left doesn't have enemies in all other than political enemies They'll leverage the Iranian mullahs Vladimir Putin whatever they need to do to take out proponents of freedom and liberty like you and I If you could just elaborate on that brilliant point Well I mean you just you alluded to it just there A second ago but everyone is making is if the Biden administration is dug in really hard against Vladimir Putin they ate Putin Now we're going to go after Vladimir Putin Do everything we
How Effective Was Donald Trump as a 'Dragonslayer'?
"Successful or how effective was Trump in particular being a dragon slayer. Well, Trump came in wanting to drain the swamp as he said, multiple times. What people miss was his definition of draining the swamp. But that time was to get rid of the K street lobbyists. He wanted to get rid of the lobbying influence on D.C.. And you know, I was pretty close at that time with Steve Bannon. I had worked with him in the 2016 campaign quite a bit. And they had no idea coming in that the Intel communities that FBI CIA, the DoJ were so incredibly politicized, they really thought they were going to make inroads in attacking some of these problems. And they were, I think taking a little bit of back by the fact that first of all, Sessions recusal just floored them. Don't let me go off on sessions because I could be here all hour on how he's so damaged the country, not just in failing to oppose the Russia thing, but he did nothing against sanctuary city mayors. He did nothing against governors who were opposing immigration laws. He did nothing about the protests by antifa. Nothing at all. In a dozen ways, even if you exclude the Russia hoax Sessions was probably our worst attorney general ever. So I think all of that just really, I think that knocked him off guard for a good 6 or 8 months before they figured out we're going to have to take a flamethrower to this. We're not going to be able to just replace people. This is an infestation that's going to require, you know, the term X people come out. Yes. Yes,
Larry Schweikart Discusses His New Book 'Dragonslayers'
"So you're the author of this new book, dragon slayers. So has Abraham Lincoln, Grover Cleveland, my man, Teddy Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump. So and thank you, police promote it. It's a very interesting take. It says, you basically 6 presidents and their war with the swamp. So the way we define the swamp on this program is the fourth branch of government, the deep state the unelected, right, kind of the German historicist model of infiltrating the constitutional order with the subversive suppressive group of people that are always trying to have their agenda implemented. How would you define it? Well, I like Bannon's definition, which is the administrative state. And it was started early on, it really starts with Martin Van Buren. One of the people in the president more than almost anybody else in history because a president that's right. He was the 8th president. Right. And as I said, he stepped on the stage just collapsed. Massive financial panic, the minute he became president. But he had created a spoil system to protect slavery. And this is why I try to insist to people, you know, the Democratic Party was created and founded and formed for one purpose only. And that was to protect and preserve slavery. That was the entire basis for which Van Buren and Andrew Jackson create the party. And to do so, they set up a system whereby loyalists to the party would be rewarded with jobs, but we called the spoil system or the administrative state because you got to put these guys somewhere. So you put them in bureaus and agencies and so on and so forth. And up until the time of the Civil War, this wasn't a very big deal because the Democrats more or less had total control of government for about 30 years. But then Lincoln gets elected and everything changes. Because now it's sort of like Trump, the wrong guys in charge of this giant apparatus that we built and could be a real threat with it. So I deal with Lincoln's war with the slave swamp, which was also known as the slave power conspiracy. And it was very real. It was a real group. And he was a genius in how he and the other Republicans of the day figured out, you know, slavery is not in a
How They Spied on the Trump White House With Kash Patel
"Have my TS clearance. I'm sure you do. So there are certain limitations on what we can see in public. But two things you discussed in others have talked about the CIA's targeting Dan discussed yesterday the CIA targeting of president Trump and his colleagues, which would be illegal. It's a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil. I was told when I was in The White House by a former CIA station chief that there was a group of four contractors civilian contractors to the NSA who were targeted who had told to target me, Steve Bannon and others. Are either of those things on the right track? What have you heard? What can you talk about? I haven't heard about that specifically, but Seth, you know, we do still have our clearances, but the one advantage of now being out of government and not having access to the intelligence that John Durham is talking about is we can say based on experience what we think happened as you and I know that probably means that's what happened. The fact that they obtained an operation to get a contract with the intelligence community is one also unheard of to gain access to a White House. And you know why they did it to them. They could have tried to go in and hack it like they did with the other operations they were running. But they knew that someday they might get caught. So what they wanted to be able to do was come out and say, oh, it's above board. We got a government contract from the intelligence community to allow us to spy on president Trump. So that's okay. So now we're good. And that's exactly what Don Durham is calling them out for. Right.
Peter Navarro, former Trump White House adviser, subpoenaed by Jan. 6 committee
"A house committee investigating the capital riot subpoenaed a former White House adviser Peter Navarro Navarro was former president trump's trade adviser the other side may have underestimated the strong winds all of president Donald J. trump he's an ally of the former president and promoted false claims of voter fraud in the twenty twenty election committee chair Bennie Thompson says Navarro hasn't been shy about his role in efforts to overturn the results and it's even discussed the former president's support for those plans Navarro's own book indicates he worked with longtime trump ally Steve Bannon and others to develop and implement a plan to delay the certification of
Who Is (the Now Infamous) Dr. Robert Malone?
"First. Doctor Malone, welcome to the Salem radio network. Thank you very much, mister gorka and thank you for the opportunity to speak to you and to your audience today. Well, I could spend the next hour just rattling off your curriculum vitae and your various qualifications in the scientific world for those who didn't see your hours long interview with Joe who haven't seen all the interviews you've given with my friend and my former colleague Steve Bannon. Would you mind would you indulge us for a second for those across the country for whom you are a new name just to give us a prey see of your background and your relationship, for example, to the mRNA vaccines that are so in the news currently? Well, for your audience, I have been vetted and have secret clearance with Department of Defense. I've won over $8 billion or managed them for in government grants and contracts. I typically work very closely with the Department of Defense defense threat reduction agency. Kim biodefense group and have for decades, I have been a vaccine developer and innovator for well over 30 years as when I was a graduate student, I had a series of discoveries that led to 9 issued U.S. patents and numerous international patents that include all of the core technology for what we call RNA and DNA vaccines, including the first proof of concept reduction to practice using an RNA vaccine in a mouse model to produce immune responses against the envelope glycoprotein of aids. So an aids vaccine candidate my first major contract was with as a newly minted MD intern at UC Davis was with the Department of the Navy for development of an aids vaccine. I am trained at northwestern university for my NDI hold a license in the state of Maryland. I'm trained in my graduate studies at the salk institute and UC San Diego undergraduate biochemistry UC Davis multiple research fellowships at UC Davis in the department of pathology was an academic for well over a decade reaching associate professor level at the uniformed services university of the health sciences. So that's the DoD medical school. In D.C., I have been involved in way too many outbreaks intimately. I spearheaded for DoD for quite a while. The development of their Ebola vaccine candidate, which eventually I brought murk in. It was licensed to American. It's now the licensed Ebola vaccine. I've worked on flu vaccines. I've worked on literally all the biodefense vaccines used to work under contract directly for DoD at dying port vaccine company.
Mike Doran: The JCPOA Doesn't Do Anything It Says It Will
"Mike there's so many things I'd like to talk to you about. Let's for once on the record, talk about this thing that clearly, whatever happens in Russia, this administration is still obsessed with Iran still obsessed with Obama's JCPOA Iran deal, which for me was the proudest moment of our administration where Steve Bannon and myself managed to create the conditions for the president to kill the deal. Why is it that great? Oh my gosh. When he called us into the oval with the rest of the cabinet members there, who were pro Iran deal and said, okay, he called us his heavies. And he said, Steve said, explain why I need to kill this. And we had a great session that the president killed it. It was wonderful. Why is it so bad? And will you explain why it didn't, in fact, stop Iran getting nuclear capability? It doesn't do. It doesn't. Not at all. Not at all. It leaves in. So the theory of the JCPOA is that is that it blocks all paths to a bomb and it keeps them one year away from being a threshold state meaning having enough fissile material to build a bond. It doesn't do that. If you look at the terms of it, all the restrictions melt away over time. Right. So they got the ten years they do whatever they want. They do. Exactly. And so they can continue to blackmail us with their with their with their quasi nuclear status or their threshold status. And then it lifts all those sanctions. And so it makes them flush with cash, which they can use to fund their proxies, who are attacking our we're attacking our allies. Like right now, we're seeing them they're attacking well through their proxies through the Houthis are attacking the
Steve Bannon: 'We Were the Hardest Core of the Hardcore'
"Me, Sebastian gorka and Steve Bannon. Steve, I want to so much to ask you. Yes. When you were in a very proud of this, the hardest core of the hardcore. Because think about it. You and I had an idea. It's the Eurasian landmass, mackinder one O one. Yep. You had the Chinese Communist Party. You had Pakistan. You had Iran. The moon is in Iran, yet turkey. You had Russia. They're all trying to work together with their junior partner, Korea, North Korea, to basically control the Eurasian landmass. The basic thesis of American politics of geopolitics since 1914, we will never allow one power or a group of powers to control the Eurasian landmass. And if you look at president Trump's consistency and constancy as a strategist as president, it's basically to confront that consistently. That's part of the problem with the Democrats and the progressive left. In particular, they're all over the map, but particularly because of climate change and other things they're prepared to make deals with everybody and not worry about the centrality of the geostrategic concerns of this. Well, look, I mean, you mentioned earlier
Steve Bannon: 'This Is as Draconian as It Can Get'
"Delighted. He is my former bus my colleague from breitbart from The White House and he is the host of war room pandemic. Steve Bannon, on deck, welcome to one on one. Thanks, Seth. I would be everywhere, but of course the mayor of D.C. has thrown down that you can't go if you're unvaccinated can't move around the city. So we'll do it. We'll do it some future time. One on one in some future time. I just realized that I'm never going to a museum again in the nation's capital. As of January 15th, you've got to have a vaccination passport. I'm not getting vaccinated. So there goes my historical input and education in the nation's capital. No, no, no restaurants, no health clubs, no office buildings. This is, you know, people that wonders about vaccine passports and we all laughed at them. You saw what happened in Europe and you've seen what's happening in Austria in Germany and I tell you this is as draconian as it
America Is Moving Toward Madness and War
"Words, I've often said I was on Steve Bannon's program, someone said, I said, we're in a war. I didn't mean a war where people take up arms, but the point is it's an ideological war. It's a media war, it's a war of ideas. But the point is that it is, it is a war for the soul of the nation. We can not be the free republic that we have been if we continue down the path that the current administration in quotes would take us clearly we're moving toward madness toward Marxist cultural Marxism has taken over intersectionality transgender critical race through all of this stuff is madness. It is false. It is harmful to people. And if you care about truth and you care about freedom, you know that you're in a war. And so the question is, what does that mean? What kind of a war is
Democrats Are on VERY Thin Ice With This January 6 Committee
"So I had told you yesterday that the Democrats were walking into a very very they were walking on the extremely paper thin ice What they're doing with this January 6th committee Their intentions with the January 6th committee have nothing to do with January 6th and everything to do with 2022 It is a super PAC designed to raise a raise hell for Republicans before the 2022 election because they're afraid they're going to lose There's nothing to do with January 6th Please let me disabuse you that notion now And they think that by locking a bunch of people up Steve Bannon Mark Meadows throw them in handcuffs and throw them in jail as they fight back against this committee They think they're going to be A-okay and that's going to be wonderful in the public's not going to respond Well as I predicted yesterday some Democrats are having second thoughts about that approach All of a sudden the optics are putting a bunch of people in jail Hey look at so great

Freedom Fighters Joe DiGenova and Victoria Toensing on Law Enforcement's Targeting of Conservatives
"And we back with freedom fighters. Joe di genova and Victoria dancing. Okay, let's talk about the latest iteration of the targeting of conservatives by law enforcement. We have the January 6th commission. We have the narrative of an insurrection occurring. The only people who died were protesters, a woman shot by a police officer and other woman who according to Julie Kelly, assume we will have the evidence was beaten to death by or crushed. Crushed in the cross will be one of the tunnels underneath the capitol. That story is about to erupt. And then we have hundreds of people who have been tracked down geolocated thanks to Verizon AT&T accused of misdemeanors like trespass and then put in solitary. Can you talk to us during Victoria on the latest developments, the subpoenas against people like my former colleague Steve Bannon and others? And the approach of mock Meadows because he's taking an interesting tack isn't he with his response in the commission subpoena? Well, Mark Meadows was originally cooperating with his lawyer, but then they began to raise issues of executive privilege and the committee said they wouldn't recognize those. And they said they were going to then Mark suspended his cooperation. And then they said they were going to have a vote and refer mark for criminal contempt prosecution, which the Garland Justice Department will no doubt put into play because they are politically completely politically motivated at the Justice Department. Now under Garland, I'm very very, very sad to say. So wisely, meadow has filed a lawsuit in United States District Court, challenging the legality of the subpoenas claiming they are overbroad that they do not really constitute the legitimate means that Congress has at its

"So there's a chance we get some answers, and then there's a chance we don't. Oh, I think we'll get some answers. But will all the questions be answered? Well, I mean, I think, you know, that depends on politics at the end of the day. The select committee is pointed by the House majority. If the House majority flips in 2022, then it's work would presumably end. However, there's a lot of time between now and December of 2022 for the current select committee to get some answers. Andrea, Bernstein, she used to host a show called Trump ink out of WNYC.

"bannon" Discussed on Today, Explained
"And in the eyes of the American people. Well, I mean, there were 35 Republican members of Congress, who voted along with Democrats to create a nonpartisan commission. So I mean, when you think about that, that's remarkable. I don't know what other situation which you've seen 35 Republicans cross the aisle. So there's obviously a desire by some in Washington. Now they suffered repercussions. When that was killed in the Senate, what happened was Nancy Pelosi said, okay, well form a select committee and they appointed 7 Democrats and 5 Republicans and only two Republicans representative Cheney and representative Adam Sierra said they would participate. So we now have the select committee, which, you know, I think, from the start, doesn't have the sort of nonpartisan credibility that non partisan commission would have liked the 9 11 commission. However, that said, it has subpoena power. It's moving aggressively. It's speaking to witnesses. And it's gathering documents. So there is an investigation occurring. And I think that is important to realize in light of the brouhaha around Steve Bannon, is that so far Bannon is the exception. So far, other witnesses are participating. And so far, there does seem to be some promise that the select committee will offer a greater understanding of what happened in the days and weeks leading up to January 6. But will he be able to outmaneuver this investigation as he has many investigations before? I mean, for a dude who's been impeached twice, he sure seems to get away with a lot. Can you wait this out until the midterms or maybe even until he who knows runs again in 2024? Well, you know, in every case that I've ever covered, which is almost all of them involving Donald Trump, the party investigating Donald Trump says it is Donald Trump's strategy to run out the clock. And in some cases, he has succeeded. But not in all of them. It's worth pointing out that after a protracted battle to try to keep his tax returns away from the Manhattan district attorney Trump lost, his company has been charged with fraud, his chief financial officer has been charged with fraud. There is a trial date set for the August or September of 2022 in that case. There are other civil actions. The former president himself had to this week participate in testimony in a civil trial brought by activists protesting outside of Trump Tower who said Trump was responsible when a security guard punched one of them in the head. And that case is going to go to trial. So, while these things have been delayed, he has not in all cases succeeded in derailing justice entirely. And I think in this committee, too, it's not like everybody's saying we're not going to participate. So it does seem like we may get some answers. Will we end up with some questions? The president may succeed in running out the clock so that all of the committees questions are not answered,.
"bannon" Discussed on Today, Explained
"I think a lot of people's last recollection of Steve Bannon could potentially be, you know, his unglamorous firing from the Trump White House and then his sort of disappearance into right wing obscurity, but was he still close with the president in the days and weeks leading up to January 6th? I mean, it's true, Steve Bannon was fired by an angry White House. Bannon's departure comes at the end of a brutal week for the administration. I think there's blame on both sides. But what may have been the last straw for Bannon, a controversial interview, the former Breitbart News executive gave to the liberal publication American prospect. Undermining the president's North Korea strategy, saying there's no military option to deal with the threat. The official but, you know, most people don't actually leave Trump's orbit. This is a pattern he fires keeps them around, brings them back. So it's not an uncommon pattern. I think it's one of the things that's very much worth remembering about Steve Bannon is that he had been accused by federal prosecutors in New York of being involved in a fraud scheme of actually stealing money from donors that were being solicited to contribute to the construction of the border wall. Mister Bannon and three other men are accused of diverting hundreds of thousands of dollars from an online fundraising campaign to build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico. You may remember that was perhaps mister Trump's single biggest campaign pledge. The money was allegedly used for personal expenses. So he was accused of that. He denied any wrongdoing. In the waning hours of Trump's presidency, he was pardoned. So what that means is on January 6th, he still was operating under the cloud of this impending federal fraud prosecution. So while he was being accused of violating fraud laws, he was also making these comments that seemed to have, perhaps, induced people to participate in a violent riot at the capitol. And that is what the committee has been asking questions about. We obviously don't know all the answers because of Bannon's refusal to testify in any way about any of this. Tell me about the timeline there. When did the committee first reach out to Bannon, what was his response and how is that progressed? So the committee students subpoenas in September. What we can see from the sum total of the witnesses that they've subpoenaed, the documents that they've requested is they are really trying to understand what happened in the days leading up to January 6th. And the first tranche of witnesses that they reached out to had knowledge of president Trump end of possibly his connections to the rally and march, if any. So they issued subpoenas to Mark Meadows, the former White House chief of staff, to dense gavino, who was in charge of social media at The White House and also to Steve Bannon. They also have requested to speak to assistant attorney general Clark, who was involved in what looked like as a very near takeover of the Justice Department and trying to get the Justice Department to urge state legislators to throw out states of electors and to a number of rally organizers. And a number of the other witnesses, for example, Mark Meadows, and cash Patel, who was an administration official in various roles, have been described by the committee as engaging with the committee. Bannon said, no way. I can't testify because there's privilege. And this brings us back to what I said at the top of the show. It's kind of funny to hear that Steve Bannon, a guy who was fired from The White House in 2017 and was relegated to a lonely life of wearing many shirts at once, is now claiming executive privilege. How does that work Andrea? There are several questions that have been raised about this by the select committee. For folks watching at home, this evening. What would happen to you if you did what mister Bannon is doing? If you were a material witness in a criminal prosecution, some of the lawsuit. What would happen if you refused to show up, do you think you'd be able to just go about your business? We all know the answer to that. First one, as you say, is Bannon has not worked in The White House for years. He left early in the Trump presidency. So there is that concern. Here's somebody who hasn't worked for The White House. What is he doing exerting executive privilege? The second one is the things that he is being asked about were not official functions. However, one of the very, very important things that is being a little lost in all of this is that the committee has also asked Bannon about lots of other communications that don't involve former president Trump at all. They involve rally organizers. They involve administration officials. They involve this so called circle of people, perhaps a kind of a war room as representative Liz Cheney has described it at the Willard hotel. So by saying I'm not giving any information about anything, what Bannon is doing is claiming that he has absolute immunity from testifying. And so far as any Michael experts that I have spoken to have said and can determine such a thing does not exist for a private citizen. And that is what is going on here is that there is a vast information that Steve Bannon could theoretically go to the he could go to the committee and he could say, look, I'm not talking about my conversations with president Trump until we have more legal clarity on this, but I will give you this other information that you seek. And if he doesn't? Well, he didn't. So he now faces a Justice Department criminal review of his activities and possible criminal consequences..

"On the capital markets. Because they're not going to want to buy our bonds i mean. Is that where you're going with the steve. Let's just pick china for second folks in. I don't wanna go off on a diatribe hear about this. But china has been a net exporter in a big way since nineteen eighty five right so they export products ever here there in walmart all over the freaking place. The we pay them in. Us dollars right. You know the producers over in china so the producers are stuck with all these. Us dollars what do they do. They need to pay their staff and they need to buy more products and do things that companies do right so they take the us dollars and they sell them and they wanna buy Nimby you know their their currency they wanna so they sell dollars and they buy that. Normally that would depress the value of the us dollar so that the dynamic of them always having cheaper currency would not be an effect you know ultimately with that sort of trade surplus normally the dollar would fall in our products would look more cheaper on the world market. Well that hasn't happened. Because guess what. The people's bank of china the chinese central bank when they need when the exporters get the dollars for the products that they export over here when we pay them in dollars and they go to the market and sell. You know who buys those. Us dollars the people's bank of china. It doesn't go to the open market. The people's bank of china is sitting on some three trillion dollars of. Us dollars probably more. That was in june of twenty twenty according to reuters so the people's bank of china buys the dollars and they give them rehn minute nimby so that they can pay their. You know the the chinese employees and all that kind of stuff so they they keep that market artificially high so they keep their currency low. And that's how it happens. They're buying up the currency and just putting it in their treasury. So what do they do with that money. They've got to spend it somewhere right. So what they do. Is they get to our treasury bonds and they buy those and they by other things and we're the best game in town. I mean that's why they do that and folks they will continue. That whole model will continue that way. unabated as long as they continue to export more than they take in which has been happening since nineteen eighty-five if they're going to have to take those dollars in invest them someplace right so I don't buy that argument either. Steve bannon you know that it's going to cause mayhem on the capital markets. So folks. this is what he's piping out to people and this is what they're believing. I mean everybody can google stuff. I get that but your average bannon listener your average guy who sends twenty dollars a month to the trump. Save america pac. They're not going to do this kind of stuff. They're not gonna google this stuff. They're just going to believe it. It's insane they just goblet up. They have no minds of their own. Steve bannon sloppy. Steve is there. I don't know he's he's their their main guy. This is where they get the information. This is like their. He's trying to be the new rush. Limbaugh folks is what he's trying to do. He's trying to be the new rush limbaugh and he just wants people to believe he doesn't want you to google anything because you'll like i just explained you'll get all the truth and it just makes everything just fall apart so i'm going to start following sloppy steve here a little bit more closely folks because you know folks are listening to this guy. Were in trouble till next time..

"Sure right winger podcasters putting all sorts of false information out. There has nothing to do with people being confused about what they should or shouldn't trust sure. That has nothing to do with right But here all answer the question directly for the nba. The brassica governor The reason why all those other vaccine mandates are not objectionable but this vaccine mandate is objectionable. Because this is what the right wing is using culture war issue of the day. That's all it is. That's that's the reason why we have more from the interview in just a second but jay go ahead. Look i to be fair to the right way. I think they probably should get polio. For freedom's sake as throwing a little bit of chicken pox to why more freedom you don't wanna be free. You want to be a lot free right so rubella whatever typhoid whatever we just smeared all over yourself. The fierce man free-spending america now. Of course you wouldn't do that with those diseases because no one ever told you to not only the doctors but it wasn't a political issue wasn't right wing left wing or anything like that. You're like oh. Polio is really bad. I don't wanna to have it. That's the conversation that used to happen. Now it's hey kroto viruses really bad over four million dead all across the world and go to talk to anyone you know. They know someone who's been affected by it right but no magically that's the one where oh my god. The same government that approves all those other ones. The fda approved this one. Every doctor in the world says go to any emergency room. They'll tell you we're all full or especially in the south right because cova patients and their dying and you look at the morgue and you could see them being taken on in the back. Nope nope this is the one why tucker carlson jimmy door. Whoever else. donald trump kind of waiting said nods added And and every dumb ass radio x minus four of them because four of them got corona virus and died because they didn't take the vaccine And so because of that. And his voters saying i demand you be dumb so he goes on national. Tv dumb and chris wallace chelsom them. On how ignorant he is any looks like the idiot. I don't even know if it's the constituents pushing this on the republican lawmakers it's republican lawmakers who chose to turn this into a culture war issue. Right i mean the disinformation coming from right-wingers was apparent from the very beginning of this pandemic. Because i'd be look masks. For instance masks became a cultural war issue a symbol of political identity. And nothing more right. That's what it turned into. Unfortunately more than six hundred fifty thousand americans gone dead hospitals. Icu beds completely overwhelmed. Completely.

"Banning on the other hand is buddies with them. So he's like oh you're gonna help me sure. Yeah i mean here's a guy who knows. He's being accused of the worst crimes you could imagine. And he lets his banning guy into his house for ten fifteen hours and put himself on tape will possibly incriminating evidence. Why because he trust bannon one hundred percent because they're really good friends and apparently they must have been for a long time to build up that kind of trust and so now bannon who never released any such documentary and years and years to do it. Never turn it over to the police. That is incredible evidence that you withheld from the police. Well that's an interesting question. They're police should ask them about. Hey why don't you withhold evidence about that child sex trafficker we got laid maxwell in jail right now. We can use it as her. Give me the goddamn tapes. Not me give to the cops. Why are the cops are though you believe the law and order and all that stuff. No you're withholding that evidence because you want to help your friend the child molester the child rapist and let's be clear about something okay. It's not bannon's fault. It's the global the fact that he used that excuse as part of his response to ben smith i. It's one talking point one trick pony. What's incredibly frustrating. Is that americans eat it up. All of these people need to do is spew hollow empty talking points about the elites without ever getting very specific about it. It'd be really. Oh yeah it's the elites it's the elites. Okay go on go on. What do you think steve. Bannon is steve. Bannon is like living in a tent on a sidewalk in los angeles anyway. Okay and one less so great. Point is the one major elite that bannon knows working for the chinese government as we speak. Yeah by the way he knows chinese billionaire. That's another elite. That's a good point. But the most famous for his so-called real estate mogul billionaire who became president that would be the definition of elite. And that's the one bannon knows the best right. And if you were planning to spring a trap on these global elite who were buddies with epstein. Well do you have that information. You have it on these folks and you're not telling us guys again if you're right wing or why don't you ask these questions. Hey brother do you have evidence on all these guys. Because you said you got it glow you were working with epstein to expose the global elites. So where's the goddamn evidence theme. Where is it going to expose. And why have you been hiding for year after year after year. Why are you hiding now. Don't get it coordinating. Oh you're always going to get him on table. Looks like i'm helping him. And i'm telling you well. How pathetic is well. I was going to get much later. Many many many years after he's already dead and made after his co-conspirator gets acquitted. When were you going to expose them. Steve what a monstrous liar. All right we gotta take a break but when we come back. It's a little alarming. That a conservative chris. Wallace asks tougher questions of gop. Lawmakers then members of the corporate media tend to. We've got that story and more when we come back all right back.

"A if you had real evidence we're very open to it because we don't like avenue because i don't think he's a remotely progressive and i think he's works for corporate interests but right before an election you're going to put your weight on larry elder who has awful track record. Because you think newsome's wife said two names the union investigate because you hung up immediately. No i'm sorry. But that's just not credible enough. It looks like you're being at a minimum used for a political and electoral races in a way. That's a little disgusting. And i leave you with one. More graphic on this story in his books. Larry elder endorsed pregnancy discrimination. According to a report for media matters suggesting that working mothers aren't dedicated and available for an all hands on deck commitment to work. What a warrior for women's rights. Good job rose. Mcgowan proud of you real proud of you. She said he was the better man. It doesn't look that way. No all right. Let's move on to i don't know maybe rose mcgowan. Think of these people's better men as well who tell a new book titled two famous by michael wolff reports. That steve bannon gave sex offender. Jeffrey epstein hours of media training prior to a sixty minutes interview. That didn't end up happening now. This was written about by ben smith and the new york times I'll give you those details in a second but bannon apparently visited epstein back in two thousand nineteen months before his arrest on charges related to federal sex trafficking. The pair met at epstein's upper east side mansion ahead of a sixty minutes interview that never ended up happening and the pair practiced for the interview with a camera. Now many give you bannon's statement in response to all of this just a second. But i do think it's important to get into the nitty gritty. Give you what the details are bent in is both conducting the interview and coaching epstein. On the little things. Ben smith writes telling him he will come across a stupid if he doesn't look directly into the camera now and then and advising him not to share his racist theories on how black people learn mainly bannon tells epstein. He should stick to his message. Which is that he is not a pedophile. Look into city series story. But look at these. Like viper's nest awful people now look jeff. We're all racist here but it doesn't play well in america so let's stick to not being a pedophile. Even though you're obviously a pedophile. Like just i mean. Do i need to say anything. More in the right looks at that and goes a cia station and child. Sex trafficking is horrible. Be those are my boys. What and what and why do you think. The republicans are constantly charging democrats with child molestation and in participating in these child sex trafficking projection. It's in their head all the time so they go well. We're doing it. We assume they must be doing so. Hey ban his buddies with jeffrey epstein and goes it helps them do media manipulation like he did for trump and so he thinks the world having you know doing whatever you're doing with kids i guess the democrats will be doing to. Let's blame people. They come luca here showed him the picture. there's another guy who seemed to be giving jeffrey epstein advice and it was the guy that benny used to work for. Oh look at that hanging out with obscene all the time by the way that's gives land maxwell who is now in prison Who helped jeffrey seen Procure the women or the children actually for his crimes and donald trump wished her well twice after she'd been arrested after she had been arrested. I wish her well. He said in a press conference before the american people..

"About women you know when you look at all of these women that if march something like two million women donald trump is probably got more obese woman off the couch and industry working out the michelle obama did in eight years. Sounds like he cares a lot about women. What a great guy. There's more though in the early two. Thousands elder maintained a page on his personal website on women and domestic violence statistics citing three articles that alleged narrative that violence against women was exaggerated for political gain. A feminists would love to know what rose mcgowan thinks about that one more he said quote women no less than men about political issues economics and current events. Good news for democrats bad news for republicans for the less one knows the easier the manipulation you know women are are all just idiots that are easily manipulated by smart men and of course larryelder Another social issues that i hope People always me on at least pretend to care about Like racial issues is horrible. I so the reason why. Republicans love larryelder is is. It's a person who's african american who says that it's the fault of african americans at every turn every turn and makes them feel like peace of mind about the recent larry elder is said. Well the slave owners should've gotten reparations. Because they were losing property. We showed you that clip last week. a and. He said that he was glad yours. zimmerman do neighborhood watch and trayvon martin's community and he'd look like it. If george zimmerman was doing neighborhood watching his community. I mean that's just absurd. He's in absurd. Person who like many minorities in a conservative circles are paid to be there because of their particular demographic but only under the condition that they speak out against their own demographic their own culture their own people et cetera. Sort of back. A guy like that because you think that you had a full like that somebody gavin newsom wife said two names you think before you hung up on her. No but that's.
"bannon" Discussed on The Young Turks
"No fan of gavin newsom. I'm certainly not in favor of replacing him with lunatic. Like larry elder but no one elected newsome's wife to be the governor and she's not the governor. She's the governor's wife with that said You know mcgowan cares a lot about the issue of sexual assault So i don't know maybe she didn't know that Larry elder has not only made disparaging comments about women but specifically disparaging comments about women. Who have been sexually assaulted his disparaging comments have been as recent as january of twenty seventeen when he deleted a tweet. That implied women taking part in the women's march were too unattractive to be sexually assaulted. But he's the better man he's the better man he's a better man. I'm anyway go ahead. Jank have more by the way. Yes so i think it's kind of a little bit sad to watch i. I think i really am. I don't know a personal mental health situation But when you are getting on henchmen reality enough to think. Larry elder is the better choice for women. I gotta start questioning your judgment and so not political in the sense of like hey. I like gavin. Newsom stack position better than i like. Larry elder tax position on this issue right and so And and so look let me give you. They'll be be fair and tell you what she said about why. She's making this accusation. And and so and it's not impossible so fruit she said apparently she claims gavin's wife said we'll boies schiller do to make you happy. Okay now boies schiller. What is that. Well boy schiller. Flexner is the law firm that represented harvey weinstein and so it turns out the son of the co founder. Jonathan schiller is josh schiller and is a sister in law to jennifer news. Okay now does that mean that. She's actually connected and actually said those things when she call. Rose mcgowan surprised. That's a hell of a thing to say at your person you don't know and some comments have not proven to be perfectly accurate. She went on to say mcgowan. Did i had no idea who that was. So i just had nothing and hung up on her. That was my last contact with her. Well i mean if you say that she said this mysterious thing about this law firm and then you instantly hung up on her. Even though you didn't know what that law firm was or what. Those series of names were well. Then how are we supposed to know what she actually meant. Even if your stories one hundred percent true you never even gave her a chance. And so there's a lot of issues here that makes me go. This doesn't sound like the most credible story. i lost track. So how many degrees of separation was that from. Gavin newsom operation. It's gavin newsome's wife's sister-in-law's something. Oh okay sister-in-law josh via sister-in-law jennifer. new nusoo. yeah so understand that stump speech wasn't about hey gavin. Newsom did a bailout that he shouldn't have done to. Pge which has sparked many vicious wildfires destroyed people's lives as it wasn't about that it wasn't about the homeless issue. It wasn't about any of that right. Look i do not like gavin newsom. I voted against the recall. And the reason why voted against the recall is because there are no candidates who would replace him and do a better job in fact all the other candidates are pretty awful. Larry elder being the top of that list of awful replacements. Okay and for her to make it's about me me me me me. That's all this was. That's all of that. Was me me me me based on something. That's i don't know how many degrees of separation from gavin newsom himself and you're playing with people's lives. Look i know. Jake is actually. I respect the fact that you're being considerate about potential mental health issues. That rose mcgowan has bush's messing with people's lives and it's not cute not funny and this is exactly what people are referring to when they discuss. White feminism right because white. Feminism is it about doing something in a collective way to ensure equality between genders white. Feminism is about me me me me. that's it that's all this was about and it was disgusting. Let me give you more from. Larry elder since that wasn't enough. Let's go to the next clip. This is larry elder on his radio. Show talking.

"It true that you have weekly meetings another absolutely robert weekly meetings. It's just. I keep my door open for everybody. It's totally false and those type of superlatives. It's just awful and then you divide divide divide. I don't know the young lady that well. I really don't have met her one time i think between sets here but that's it so we have not had any conversations. She just speculating insane. Saying things because she wants to not the only one. I'm sure you've heard their number of your fellow democrats who say that. You're opposed to this because you're paid for by no sense at all. That was fantastic in his shows. You the type of leverage power that progressive lawmakers can have if they're willing to call out their own when they're more willing to basically protect corporate interests as opposed to the best interests of their own. Constituents okay so this is great news. We're now having a national conversation about whether joe mansion is bought off by corporate donors. And so look. I think dana bash. Did a really good job of that interview. Show is tough and ask the questions you need ass the next interview. We might even get follow up on. Who's donors are because once you find out who. The donors are worse and worse. I do know someone who asked that question. We'll get to him later. Finance me give him no but seriously this is really important and i only give that as an example of what should have on a regular basis but no corporate democrat was ever asked about their donors just democrats came in and now finally have brought this issue forward and not just democrats wonderful progresses i katie porter and now it forces. Just what did i guess it. Forces the media to then ask them about it now. We're having right conversation. Why is joe mansion. Doing what he's doing and so i got so much more on that but but thank you to. Afc and others for us get finally getting to the heart of the matter. What actually motivates them knows. Vote the way that they. Before i get to the second part of mansions interview with cnn. I want to give you the tweet that sparked this conversation in the first place Abc had tweeted. the following. Mansion has weekly huddles with exxon and is one of many senators who gives lobbyists their pen to write. So-called bipartisan fossil fuel. Bills it's killing people. Our people at least twelve last night. Sick of this. Bipartisan corruption. That masquerades as clear eyed moderation. And of course she's responding to mentions. Op ed where. He makes clear that he is against the three point. Five trillion dollar budget reconciliation bill which includes incredibly important provisions including climate action Paid family leave and expansion of medicare to include dental and vision and so I love the fact that she hit pretty hard in that tweet. It apparently had an effect. And here's the second part.

"bannon" Discussed on CATS Roundtable
"Good Morning America. This is the cat's table. John Katzman ts here with this morning is the person was a president chairman of President Trump's campaign an advisor to President Trump wins this morning. Steve Bannon Steve Morning John. Thanks for having me on the show. How long complicated? Week many ways. Where do you WanNa Begin? Why I think everything's really engulfed? The city is is the impeachment. You you know we still. We stood up or room there at the Breitbart Embassy. We have polling. We have rapid response. We have You know people that are surrogates this were booking people on TV and we started a online radio show in August has now been picked up by many stations throughout the country. So it's live every day. Hey from nine in the morning till ten and we're over there to try to focus the grass roots on the issue president trump being a peach. And how how's it going. How's his listenership? Well it's on fire on podcast. We've picked up. You know tens of thousands of listeners. Already already I think it's over one hundred fifty thousand seventy five thousand. We've got tons of downloads. there'd be more tonight and we've been picked up by networks throughout the country so the listener ships find the traffic graphics on the site. The question is are we getting people motivated in this town right now. I don't feel the energy or the urgency sometimes sometimes in the Republican side and the president trump's core supporters are very engaged in this. But I somehow through. The Republican establishment is kind of hanging back in other words waiting for the impeachment to happen too so the ball will be mick what well I think it's you know we just can't sit there and wait for the impeachment to happen. It's it it was a terrific that we had a party line. Vote in real. We really had A couple of senior Democrats won one number of leadership actually vote with the Republicans on to start the inquiry but the key is to get these thirty one freshman Democrats and it gets some of those to come over to our side and so I just think that every day. Hey you know this is a war of attrition. The Democrats have the media the Democrats You know have have prevented gas routes network. That's funded by people like source in a Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer And they're very motivated. Try to remove president trump from office. Now we know that's not gonNA happen but what they're trying to do is to blunt the art of the trump presidency. Do they really believe you can get to that point. I think they absolutely do. I mean listen. They believe they have the votes votes right now to actually bring a two. Maybe three articles of impeachment against him in the House before Christmas and they're moving very rapidly. There's like a blitzkrieg right next week. I think they're going to be some somewhere between you know eight and maybe ten a witnesses in this public hearing in so we've actually you know over the weekend we're GONNA have more people down in the Star Chamber for the For the private depositions what I call the auditions so you know the Democrats feel that. They're moving forward very rapidly. Definitely on this. And and and there they don't feel they're taking many hits because the mainstream media was the New York Times Washington posts. CNN or NBC CBS. They think there with so I think You know although we see this as a policy debate we don't think there's anything even close to being impeachable here. In fact we took the president. Did the exact right day which is focused on corruption in having other allies pitching here in the Ukraine The Democrats I think very confident. They're moving down the right path. You you said you're working on polling What are your polls show for the poll? Show that what what I think hurt was tweets that there was no organized response. It's too Nancy Pelosi. That's where we start to lose some independence. I think right now ever since really Matt Gaetz went down to the to the skiff and really brought up to the nation's nations attention. This was being done in secret. I think you've seen a shift in the polling. I think we're in kind of stasis right now but you know they hope would these public hearings particularly broadcast. TV to bring the nation in there. So far John the ratings have been quite low in these things have been quite Quite laborious they haven't been as exciting. I I think the Democrats have thought not as much drama so we don't know how much the nation's really tuning in right now but this is going to be a war of attrition. I mean this is where we've really gotTA AH messaging writing this work. President Trump's point of view on this in his side in this has to really come to the forefront. That's one of the reasons he tweeted. Today he tweeted actually during the hearing and was quite controversial because he was trying to get his side out any particular. Thomas on any of the people have testified so far I think the the key thing is that this is really a policy dispute between these unelected bureaucrats. This is the foreign policy. And it's the foreign policy policy of John McCain and the Bush family and And you know Madeleine all John Kerry Hillary Clinton the permanent political classes. Foreign Policy is on display here and this is what exactly what trump was elected to get away from this is about managed decline it. Donald Trump was about returning America took her former greatness. In that was about implementing America First National Security Policy the forefront of that was to make sure that we rooted out corruption that were not giving money these foreign countries just going to go to a bunch of top Kratz in addition and we're GonNa have allies like Germany and France nine kingdom particularly in Europe. They'RE GONNA THEY'RE GONNA put some money to work here and go shoulder to shoulder with us. I think trump and I think this gets down to a policy debate. I think a policy debate does that's needed but so far or you know so far the media has so sided with The Democrats have been kind of It's been kind of outrageous now. The the markets hit an an all time high on on Friday. I mean is somewhere I heard the comet its economy stupid I mean it. That doesn't mean average. American people feel that the the markets are all time. High unemployment is all time lows. How can they be people? Bullets don't support The President Listen. I just gets to the point John. You know the Walmart numbers one of the things that drove the market. The Walmart numbers were blow at numbers number one of the reasons that brought numbers. That's what we're working class and middle class people shop and you see the trump economy trump's got full employment wages going up. People are feeling very good about their financial situation. And they're spending money Like they haven't in the last couple of years that's why the Walmart numbers are good. That consumers driving this and one other reasons consumers are driving and people have jobs and wages are increasing and so against that backdrop. What you have is the Democrats who want to nullify the two thousand the sixteen election you you notice that? They don't talk about the power of trump's tax. They don't talk about the power of unlocking American entrepreneurs or the kind of animal spirits that you're seeing seeing now in Ghana. No you're you're an entrepreneur that entrepreneurs want to put money to work in the reason is is that the consumer is back in the consumers back because trump's got an economy economy where the consumer particularly working class people have good jobs and now they're getting a paycheck well on American businessmen. I believe in no oh interest rates I believe in a in not getting attacked by regulatory agencies and if I feel good what about it we create more jobs and businesses. All about well remember Elizabeth Warren and the radicalized part of the Democratic Party You're you're a target. They don't want you feeling good. And they particularly go are not issued about you creating jobs what they want you to do what they WanNa do is come and take start taking value. You've crazy in the wealth you've taken and they're not interested in you putting money back to work and I think that's what this campaign I think. The twenty twenty. It's GonNa come down to that. I believe that this impeachment. It's to try to blunt the Ark of trump's presidency remember. The Democrats are petrified. That trump has delivered for working class people. And that's what they're going to try to stop up here with this nonsense about Ukraine. If we have a full and frank debate about America First National Security Policy. DONALD TRUMP'S GONNA win this hands down. Well I agree You know I as a business I feel good about it and I'm supporting Donald Trump and I've said that publicly but you know the Democrats still out there fighting We have a thirty seconds. Left what do you want to tell the American people or blue. I think everybody start paying attention to his impeachment. Chrissy how outrageous it is. You'll see what it's a political warfare run by Nancy Pelosi President Trump's done nothing wrong. The phone call was perfect. And he's standing up for American tax. Payer in American servicemen to make sure that we got people that are shoulder to shoulder with in situations like Ukraine Steve. Bannon thank you for coming on Steve. Bannon President Trump's close advisor and let's catch up again real soon John. This is the cats roundtable. We'll be right back..
"bannon" Discussed on Yeah, But Still
"Welcome to podcast was do the air lawyer. I am. Oh, yeah. We have Aaron Gloria Ryan returning to the podcast act on that on the pod. That was the first the first one that you did Felix in air. And I was like, oh, I feel that was like the first podcast was like this where doing yeah, we're ready to sign that was that was that was a hot one. Yeah. But I mean, we were we were talking before pressing record. And it was just getting to a point where it's like, you know, I think should be on air because Brandon was telling you this. The topic of Steve Bannon came up Steve Bannon came up, and and circle back to a a story that we've we've talked about on this podcast. But I'm Brian you're telling version of it. Well, it's starting to get into the semantics of it. Well, I was tricked into thinking. This girl is Steve Bannon daughter her friend who was like, okay, my friend. She was like, my friend wants to have a three. Awesome. And she like, she shows me these pictures, and then she is a issues, I should tell you. She's Steve Bannon's daughter. And I I'm I'm full resistance mode. I'm like, okay. Let's fucking go. Wait. How is how is? I'm gonna let you before jumping feeling somebody's sexual wishes form of resistance because because Seve. Seve Bannon probably wouldn't want people wouldn't want me in there. Okay. So this is so that's that's sort of my mental that was sort of my mentality at the time. And then these these like I can't I don't want to reveal too much because I don't want to give out her last. I mean, whatever it's Bannon. Yeah. But like, I mean last was banned in and then like, I searched her name, and it was like, okay, see ban and has a daughter with his name. The seems real Aaron is telling you a glossy he's been telling himself this lie for a long time. There's he's racing me from the story because this he brought this information me, and he sends me this girl. And I like I was like well Steve Bannon really bad divorce and his daughters. Don't talk to him. And I don't think they go. I don't think that use last name go by different last. Yeah. And I was like and also this girl looks literally nothing like either daughters, and he's like, I don't know. This. Like, I think I should still do it just in case. Like, wouldn't it be you know, like? Why should I should if I could bang Steve Bannon's daughter, I should right now is like I mean, I guess like, yeah. So I pretty much I laid out to you everything you need to know. Like, this is literally not Steve Bannon daughter, and you're like, it could be I think I should do it. I guess there's only one way to find out. It's a weird story. I mean. Yeah. Story presented to me originally is like I'm going to be doing this for the good of our country. Daughter. Here's the thing though, if okay imagine the opposite of Steve Bannon in your head like imagine, if it were somebody that you really looked up like Joe Biden or Barack Obama or whatever and love I'd love today. to Obama..
