Guest Host Rich Zeoli Tackles Iran, Hamas and Wokeist Support
"Yeah. And you know what? If some people fire, get lost in the ah, oh, well. And yet we gave them billions of dollars, pallets of cash, and we helped them expand their nuclear program. That's why Alan Dershowitz, when he was on my radio show, said Barack Obama's been a villain in all this, trying to equate that both sides here, both sides have been wrong. Israel was attacked by Hamas on October 21st. And I'll tell you something else, too. I got to give Sheryl Sandberg credit, the former CEO of Facebook, now known as Metta, because she came out with a piece and she talked about how we need to be calling out Hamas for raping women. And we need to be doing that. And these same groups on college campuses, you know, the Rainbow Hair and all their alphabet soup organizations, those same kids on college campuses who were there, out the pro -Hamas kids don't seem to care how women are treated. They don't seem to care how these terrorists destroy will women and they have no respect for them. They don't consider them equal. They'll rape them. They'll beat them. They'll assault them. They have no rights in their countries. But woke -ism is all about figuring out who the victim group is and then deciding to support that victim group no matter So what. in this case on college campuses, what you've seen is that the progressive woke people have all decided that somehow Hamas, they're really just freedom fighters here and they're the ones who are the victims. So that's why you have the pro -Hamas terrorists, protesters out there all over college campuses and now it's getting to the point where they're also ransacking the offices of the DNC. But how do we get here? I mean how do we get to this point where we can now as the United States of America turn around and try to tell Israel what to do and try to tell Israel how it should fight its wars? How do we get here to this place? Well, this is what Mark tweeted out a short ago. time It's now official. Biden, Blinken do not want Israel to win the war against Hamas and they more continue onerous to conditions place more on and Israel and as they plot to carve up Israel and give Judea and Syria, West Bank to the Palestinians, all of whose leaders are terrorists, and Gaza. The Biden Blinken plan is to destroy Israel, which is the original Obama Blinken plan. Meanwhile, while Biden Blinken

Fresh update on "barack obama" discussed on WTOP 24 Hour News
"Visit KBR .com slash careers. Washington's top news. WTOP. Facts matter. 8 It's .14 and I'm Dimitri Sotis. Thanks a lot for being with us. New tonight on the in Crisis the Middle East. President Biden says he's spoken with the parents of the Israeli -American dual citizen released tonight from Hamas in Gaza and shall soon be reunited with her three children. The mom is one of 16 hostages set free tonight. It's important to remember President Biden and his administration have played a central role in this deal to get some of the hostages released from Gaza. He believes his unconditional public support for Israel has been key. was This a policy, though, that was criticized by Barack Obama's team all the way back when Joe Biden was vice president. Joining us live to talk about this and some other aspects of this story, Courtney Cubby, who is NBC News Spotted covering national security and the Pentagon. Courtney, it really is astonishing to those of us that watch closely how much of that bad blood kind of comes to the surface between the Biden and Obama teams now and again. Can we objectively say that this policy currently of quite literally hugging Benjamin Netanyahu, keeping him close and then offering suggestions has worked pretty well for Joe Biden? Well, President Biden certainly that thinks it has worked for him. And he's even told aides, according to a number of officials who we've spoken with, that he believes he was right all along with this idea of sort of bear -hugging Israel, that is keeping showing both publicly support for them with the idea of that maintains the ability U .S. to have influence, to have access with the Israelis. And frankly, what you were just talking about with the hostage negotiations with the ability for the U .S. to talk to Israel about ground operations, things like when they decided to first move in on the ground in Gaza, President Biden, according to the officials we spoke with, believes that the fact that the U .S. has kept Israel so close since October 7th is one of the reasons they've that been able to influence some of the decisions on the ground by the Israelis. What mistake does President Biden say President that Obama made nearly 10 years ago? So this was back in 2014 when Israel mounted a military assault on Gaza. President Obama at the time, of course Vice President Biden at the time, the U for at times somewhat critical of the Israelis strikes and attacks into and the civilian casualties. So something that we've been hearing a lot about for the last several weeks publicly all around the world is this idea that the Israelis were not being careful enough with civilian casualties in Gaza. But President Biden since then, and in fact at the time President Obama even was, according to the officials we spoke with, sort of made fun of Vice President Biden at the time for his views and believed that he was right. Well now President Biden is saying of course he believes that he was right all along. All that being said there are signs that President Biden is in trouble in some states for example now, Michigan, with so many Muslim voters living there, and then being really upset with his policy toward the Palestinians and the thousands of deaths that have resulted. And despite the fact that the administration really is, and the world frankly is thrilled with the fact that hostages are getting out, this is obviously seen as a win, there is sort of what happens next here. Dimitri, people are already starting to talk about the next phase of the ground offensive in Gaza. What will that look like? Could the Israelis move south, where of course they've told many Palestinians to go for safe haven, and there's a lot of concern, according to US officials, that in fact we may see even civilian more casualties, and that more people around the world and in the United States could turn against as Israel we see more Palestinians injured and killed in some of these bombing attacks. appreciate Certainly the update. Thank you so much. Thanks Dimitri. Courtney Cubby live on WTOP. NBC News correspondent, covering national security and the Pentagon. Part of her reporting along with Carol Lee is that President President Biden is now issuing a policy that at one time he was made fun of as Vice President for pursuing and that was to get close to Israel, really close to Israel, where they could in a friendly way make suggestions about any such war.

Fresh "Barack Obama" from Sound ON
"It's a tough room today for for joe biden the president of the united states wakes up to hear from jamie diamond and bill ackman both not looking forward to his reelection bill ackman going even further uh... here kind of amazing essentially telling him that he speaks and must drop out of the twenty twenty four campaign it comes against the backdrop of new numbers from gallup again tough room poor marks for biden the headline middle east economy foreign affairs look at this thirty seven percent approved fifty nine percent dis approve unchanged from last month's ratings which remain in the in basement so let's reassemble our panel rick davis is with us of course bloomberg politics contributor republican strategies joined today by brad howard democratic strategist former spokesperson for the blue dog democrats uh... this with us today on the fastest show in politics great to have you both here uh... brad what do you do for joe biden he's he's asking you for your advice he's got a list of accomplishments that he thinks you get him reelected from infrastructure to the i r a but these numbers have been incredibly stubborn the thing before i get the advice i would give to the president which you know doesn't come that often but should he yeah but first i just want the polling is tricky for a democratic incumbent in general because we have a sector of our base that's never satisfied that we go far enough right and so they're always going to be disapproving of the president's job performance because they didn't think he went liberal enough they may be satisfied with some of the things but he did they want more for instance barack obama in october 2011 was below where joe biden is today and yet he resoundingly beat mitt romney a year later so there's a factor of that involved here am i concerned about the poll numbers absolutely and what i you know the president needs to go out and talk about some of these accomplishments but not in a way that vote for me because i've done this like counting your accomplishments builds trust with the voter i said i would do this i've done done now this here's what i want to do for you if you give me another term i think that second part of that message the house has yet to address i mean they're prepared to attack donald trump who i think is going to be the republican nominee i think most people do and i think in that situation joe biden can and will win but what is joe biden's vision for another four years and to the compliment that he has peaked i think you're seeing joe biden's peak right now in his career as president he is delivering time and again he is passing historic pieces of legislation from infrastructure to climate change to prescription drug reforms that bring prices down for seniors that no president has been able to do before and he is also standing with our allies allies abroad defending ukraine and israel uh... from uh... barbaric attacks from terrorist group or authoritarian regime and i'm proud of the work he's doing in foreign policy to strengthen nato and hold firm with our allies israel and korean well let's hear from uh... bill acton and we'll get to speaking of peaking here's how he conversation with bloomberg was uh... is actually uh... interesting candidate uh... just ounces uh... candidacy on the democratic side that i would say no one has heard of congressman named dean phillips so that that you you probably have heard of them may know him met with the recently i was impressed i think the best i think by it's done a lot of good things uh... but i think uh... his legacy will not be a good one if he if he is that the nominee uh... i do think the right thing provided to do is to step aside to say he's not run and create the opportunity for some competition of old step aside say he's not not gonna run i've peaked meanwhile rick jamie diamond is urging he says even liberal democrats to back nikki haley should joe biden worry about what billionaires think no uh... joe biden shouldn't give it a second thought uh... but he should care about what is democratic voters think and they actually echo a little bit of what bill backman saying uh... they are not happy with his performance in office uh... as brad was saying i mean it's a democrat uh... uh... it's hard to manage a a group of voters like that they're logically but they have an incumbent president and they're putting that at risk that democrats alone could could lose this election no no help from the independence who by the way aren't also buying the biden administration's case for reelection uh... so republicans are sort of done right we could like call it a day and if the election were held republicans today will vote exactly the same way they're going to do in november regardless of who the republican nominee is there's a substantial difference in how democrats and independents c a reelection joe a different democrat or even a potential third -party entrance and that's the wild card in this this this campaign biden has to start to deal with it and it's basically been the campaign from nowhere right i mean like where where are they today what are they doing how they trying to help him win these constituencies back it's their own base that according to this gallup poll they don't like what he's doing in ukraine they don't like what he's doing in israel they don't like what he's doing on the economy these are democrats saying these things they got to get that straight today brad axios decided to take a look at arab american and muslim american anger over president biden's handling of the israel -hamas war interesting numbers here they're looking at michigan georgia arizona sylvania and virginia all of course important swing states that have sizable populations of both the arab american institute estimating from its own polling about fifty nine percent of arab american voters supported joe biden in twenty twenty it says polling indicates a dramatic decline in recent weeks and that would uh... that would drive with what we've heard about younger voters eighteen to thirty four who are upset about the loss of civilian life and joe biden's full -throated support for israel all of these knowing how narrow divisions are how close the selection is going to be either way all of these could be game injuries how much of a problem is this now for joe i would also understand polling after crises like the one we're facing in israel is is being volatile it always is and it will not be at this level a year from now regards the situation maybe different issues and different concerns but you're talking the debate around the war in israel is so emotionally charged at the moment that you kind of have to let that polling you know fizzle out and then address it in the longer term but it is a problem but i think for all the times that publicans president accused biden not standing up to the far left elements of his party or the progressive wing his party which he has time and again when you look at the legislation he's passed this is another instance where the president is standing up to the far left elements of his party and doing what he thinks is right for the american people and for the long -term national security interests of the country and so i think this is a tense moment in politics american on both sides of the aisle and i think we'll continue to see how this plays out he's got to do some work to build relationships and repair those relations in the muslim community and the progress of community but you know i i think for before republicans jump up and down they're not exactly running to the present the republican side where donald trump is proposing a national but muslim listen again that's

Fresh "Barack Obama" from Stephanie Miller
"More maybe dot let's dance let's dance let's good morning sailor, how are you? good morning, i'm dancing this morning cause there's twenty eight out here twenty degrees oh my god upstate new and it was twenty three this morning when i got yikes i yikes uh... so malcolm i was saying i just remember a simpler time we we just automatically stood with our friends we knew who our friends were around the world and also i hate to say it like this but how has it been lost that this is in america's best self -interest as well to help our allies around the world whether it's ukraine or uh... israel and i'm blue in the face saying it ukraine is not a war it's a terrorist attack on on on you you know sovereign nation of ukraine since when is this a dispute in congress likes going on well this dispute started when donald trump tried to extort president salinsky a few years ago and that got him impeached if you recall all of when missiles right thousands of bad javelin missiles uh... almost half a billion dollars in aid that for uh... that the defense department even under barack obama had authorized all all of that was held hostage when donald trump couldn't get salinsky form a fake investigation so that he could go after joe biden and hunter biden from that very moment that was it fights on you know vladimir putin's baby big fat orange baby decided that salinsky is an enemy you know trump land not the united states i mean it took up since world war two we have always defended and protected our allies and back to your analogy about ukraine being a terrorist attack yeah you know let me give you an analogy to hamas to israel and hamas the russians are hamas in this circumstance right they they ukraine invaded out of nowhere and started killing thousands and thousands of civilians so uh... you know ukraine definitely has the right to defend themselves but donald trump says no because his uh... moscow daddy says no yeah you know and we've been obviously this has gotten so emotional i know you've been in a million twitter fights for the whole at least situation but you know i i just started the show with this uh... you you've retweeted uh... palestinian pro protesters demonstrate outside the memorial service performer first lady rosalynn carter in atlanta and you uh... louis morano who said damn what other ignorant ignorance the last time i saw president carter was when i took him to the arrest crossing thing where he went into gaza to plant a uh... for tree from lebanon to symbolize peace as a u s official i couldn't him go with no one spoke up for the palestinian people as carter did and you know as i said it whatever whatever your ideology or your side of any issue the funerals should be off off limits right uh... oh yeah well you know carter carter got the nobel prize for p or got uh... manakan bacon and yet uh... and uh... uh... and worsted dot as for peace he literally stopped all major wars between arab states in israel and he knew that he knew the issue very intimately but here's another thing about are pro palestinian uh... activist brothers and out of hand where they think it's appropriate laying down in front of you grimace at the thanksgiving day parade in new york city that did not help them it makes people hate them going to jimmy carter instead of you know them giving a moment of silence and saying thank you for you know everything you've done at camp david uh... protesting israel all of the president's that helped the arab well in israel no it's come to reconciliation it was jimmy carter speaking out of hand i mean it's on all the sides of the support you know palestinian students that were shot in vermont i don't know if you saw this the vermont shooting suspect appears to have a you tube account with videos that include expose fauci you know it's like talking about all the politics being scrambled this islamophobic anti -vaxxer you idiot know or as i've said on the other side how do you think attacking jews are jewish businesses in america is going to free stine i mean people have just lost their minds around this whole thing well it's it's rising it's become very polarizing and i don't get in twitter fights because i like twitter fights yeah but i certainly like to end them when they're at thrown me uh... because i spent my whole career in the muslim world helping muslim states believe my me presence has stopped more stupidity by u .s. commanders with bombs you could ever imagine to where i'm the guy who goes hey listen i've been there this is my you know i understand these people they go oh i didn't know that well we won't bomb those guys you know in their mosques can i say just you're not only a patriot you're a terrorism expert so you know when you say this is a terrorist attack on civilians in ukraine this is a terrorist attack by a terrorist named bladimir putin when you say hamas are terrorists and this is a terrorist attack on you know israeli civilians again you've criticized the israeli side many times you know i just had thrown this morning just you know oh you're supporting israel's terror some of you may not what like i'm going to say but i watched oh i can tell you that's true public career starting with the waterboarding debate was my support of efforts in military conflict yeah all right if i see something wrong i'll call it out in a heartbeat i'll grab all these other things the u .s does stupid things too but hamas launched this war and israel invaded on october seventh and my problem is all the people who refused to believe there ever was an october seventh and you know every time i mention it they go back to 1947 and 1948 i go you know you're doing occupation get a dictionary you want occupation go back to the roman occupation of judia in 6 bc that was an occupation that lasted for centuries brought about the first judaean war these people have all been there for centuries themselves years but there is a history but this one started with the massacre breaking of a of a of a uh ceasefire and massacring 1200 civilians you cannot let that go now does that you know people say oh but you you you don't care arabs about and palestinian children i love those children i do care about them i've been to weddings and shot the and gun and had kids crawling all over me but war is horrible and hamas bought that that war to its people deliberately they wanted israel to attack they have actually said it in their videos that they need the blood of palestinian women and children to mobilize their fighters so you know if you've just gotten into this thing if you're just you know trying to be an ally to the pro -palestinian side you can be an ally to the people who are pro -palestinian people but if i hear you say like those idiots up in berkeley who came up and said uh armed is resistance legitimate isis that's like saying al -qaeda smashing those airplanes on 9 11 is legitimate isis beheading everybody was legitimate don't go there all right what you're doing is you are doing open support of a terrorist group and should that change into any other things like you becoming a real activist that could become a real support for a terrorist group right and that's what the fbi sits around looking for yeah you those three men was also a terrorist yes islamophobia was off and the charts now for yeah decades i got both sides going at each other yep you wrote a piece hostage warfare did hamas's strategy work uh... you know again this was their strategy so talk to us mean about i i've said on this show i don't know your take but i think if trump were in office gaza would be a parking lot and every every house would be dead self talk to us a question yeah go ahead no question trump would have

I have delved into the question of how good a weekend or a good any day one could have when the world is so filled with evil and one has to try despair as a sin, as I have noted on a number of occasions based on my Bible commentary. Hi, everybody. Good to be with you. This is late breaking. I normally don't have the show driven by news as it breaks, but this is an important—many of them are important, but this is, I believe, worthy of immediate attention. This is from Newsweek. Conservative social media personality Steven Crowder teased the release of a manifesto allegedly written by an accused school shooter in Nashville, Tennessee, where six victims died earlier this year. Boy, I'll tell you, Newsweek is really—this sentence is so gingerly phrased. Let's see. The manifesto is allegedly written by an accused shooter, not the shooter. Six million victims died, not were murdered. In a video posted Monday, that's today, to YouTube, Crowder said the manifesto was leaked and shared screenshots of portions of the document which was believed to be written by Audrey Hale, 28, whom authorities identified as the shooter. They also said Hale, who died at the scene, once attended the school. By the way, that is interesting that they say allegedly. You say allegedly when somebody is about to stand trial, but if the person was shot at the scene, you don't say allegedly. What was Audrey Hale doing there? Checking out school curricula? No, it's a little too ginger. Anyway, I will be reading the manifesto here on this show. I wish that I wouldn't have to, Crowder said in the video. In a post to X, formerly Twitter, Crowder shared other images of the manifesto, including one part that said, I hope I have a high death count. Newsweek has been unable to independently verify that Metro Nashville Police Department spokesperson told Newsweek that the police are unable to confirm the manifesto, but said they are actively looking into the matter. Here's a question for Nashville police. Why didn't you release it immediately? Some authorities had it, and my suspicion is because the manifesto reveals, as was suspected, a left -winger and it was a trans person. So the left sort of has the view, padona misa gosh, there are no enemies on the left. And whereas if the manifesto were some racist, anti -black screed, we would have known about it immediately. So three children and three adults at Nashville's Covenant School were murdered. She later died from gunshot wounds. Shortly after the shooting occurred, this is again from this Newsweek article, police said that they had recovered a manifesto believed to have been written by hell. So why, why was it never released? The ongoing investigation into the March 27 murders of six persons inside the Covenant School continues to show, from all information currently available, that killer Audrey Hale acted totally alone. That's not the question. Well, I'll report to you. There is a report somewhere, but since I haven't seen it, I can't, I won't report it yet, about what it revealed. And it seems to me that if the report is correct, it was a big anti -white kid screed. All right. So we live in an age of moral confusion, as I have warned all of my life. And the charge against Israel that it commits genocide against the Palestinians which a charge that has been made for decades, this is not new to the current war against Hamas, is another gigantic lie of the left. But the truth is not a left -wing value. So I have data here from Statista, which has no political bias that I know of. You agree with me? I don't know. Okay, fine. Statista Infographic Newsletter. Statista puts out statistics. So this is from 2020. Growth of Palestine. Let's see now. The need for peace continues to grow in urgency as Palestine's population is growing at a larger rate than Israel. Jewish and Arab populations are on a collision course of parity in the coming decades, with Arab Israelis also growing faster than Jewish Israelis and gaining more voting power. Then there's a chart, Growth of Palestine. It begins in 1960, and the green is Palestine, the blue is Israel. They have gone from 1 .1 million to 5 .1 million in 2020. So there is a growth of essentially five times growth quintupled since 1960. The Jewish population has quadrupled, has gone up four times the Arab population of the area five times. Have you ever heard of a genocide where the people being genocided have a population growth of 5x? The lie is so grandiose, but you have to know something. The people screaming it believe it, especially those who are Palestinian or from other Arab or Muslim countries. They believe their lies. Read David Price Jones' book, The Closed Circle. You'll see that he's an Arab expert. He lived an exaggeration and lies as being very frequently in the public sphere conflated. Anyway, we're catching up. The truth is that a left wing value in the left wing dominates academia and the media. So much for the charge of genocide. The only attempt at genocide of the Palestinians and their Muslim supporters around the world, they wish to commit genocide against the Jews of Israel, perhaps all Jews in the world, but certainly Jews of Israel. That is the only genocide that can be alleged in the Middle East. Well, there was one, but I don't know. Yeah, I guess you'd call it the Middle East, of course. Do you remember the Yazidis, how they were wiped out by ISIS? Well, virtually, yeah. There was a real, let's put, an ethnic cleansing, let's put it that way. Genocide. From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free is a call for genocide. It is a call for the eradication of the Jewish state. There are 22 Arab states, from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean, but there's no room for a Jewish state the size of New Jersey. People just always need to remember that. Should there be a 24th Arab state, one that never existed in the history of the world? I hear some Palestinian speakers actually saying, we are the descendants of the Canaanites. Did you know that? You can meet a living Canaanite. Can you meet a parasite and a Jebusite? He said he was a Jebusite? Is Arafat said he was a Jebusite? I didn't know the man had a sense of humor.

And the New York Times reports he urged his former aides to, quote, take in the whole truth, seemingly attempting to strike a balance between the killings on both sides. Would he have done that in World War II? Strike a balance between the killings? Look at how many German civilians we killed. Look at how many Japanese civilians we killed. Would he have said that? I don't know, but to me it would be the same thing. The moral difference between the allies and the Nazis and the allies and the Japanese was no greater than the moral difference between Israel and Hamas. We live in the age of moral relativism. It's infected almost the entire intellectual class. I saw it when I was at graduate school at Columbia University, and professors generally equated the U .S. and the Soviet Union. It was not a battle, the Cold War in their view, between freedom and tyranny, or between, if you will, light and dark, with all the darkness that exists, obviously, in everyone and in every country. There was an unbridgeable gulf between light and dark between the United States and the Soviet Union, but they would not agree to that. It was a superpower battle or a battle of two economic systems, communism and capitalism, as if they are morally equivalent, let alone just equally effective. Well, there are people who build their society with communism and slaughter tens of millions of their people while doing it, and there's another free society which is infinitely wealthier. I remember that when I wanted to get soda from a soda machine when I was there during the Cold War, and I as know that I speak Russian, and so the machine would say, госированая вода, gas gaseous water, meaning like sparkling water. The machines were quite common in Moscow, I don't know about the rest of the Soviet Union, and there was a plastic cup like you would have in a house there, and everyone who got the sparkling water used that cup. Isn't that fascinating? One cup. I drank from it, you know me, I mean, you know, they reported internationally that I, for fork drops in a restaurant, I will actually use it. I am not, shall we say, a hypochondriac, struck but it me as an example, they didn't have the money to have a paper cup used every time and thrown away. Incidentally, I'll tell you what else moved me. I will acknowledge this, because truth is the number one obligation. Nobody stole the cup. I found that fascinating. Here's this former aide to take in the whole truth, unquote. This is Barack Obama this weekend, seemingly attempting to strike a balance between the killings on both sides. What Hamas did was horrific and there's no justification for it, Mr. Obama said, and what is also true is that the occupation and what's happening to Palestinians is unbearable. Really, what is happening to Palestinians that is unbearable? I'm not talking about the current war in Gaza, which they brought upon themselves just like the Germans did and the Japanese did. Unbearable? Really? Has he or anybody he talked to gone to visit the West Bank? Is life on the West Bank unbearable? Didn't strike me as that way, been there a number of times. All I remember was a lot of cranes building new buildings. And they're obviously having a lot of kids. Generally, having a lot of kids in an unbearable situation tend not to go hand in hand. What is true is that there are people right now who are dying, who have nothing to do with what Hamas did. There were Germans who died who had nothing to do with what Hitler did. That's correct and you blame Hitler for their deaths. You blame Hamas for the death of Palestinians in Gaza. All their money is used to buy rockets and dig tunnels everywhere, including right under hospitals. If there is such a thing as evil, Hamas is it. But after all, if you raise a generation to believe that America is evil, then evil loses its meaning, doesn't it? That is what has happened. Okay. There are no comments. It's interesting they don't have comments on me on this particular story. Dennis Ross is a major figure in Middle Eastern diplomacy. For 35 years, this former U .S. envoy to the Middle East, who has generally been critical of Israel, not anti -Israel, but critical of Israel. For 35 years, I've devoted my professional life to U .S. peacemaking policy and conflict resolution planning. Nothing has preoccupied me like finding a peaceful and lasting solution between Israel and the Palestinians. In the past, I might have favored a ceasefire with Hamas during a conflict with Israel, but today it is clear to me that peace is not going to be possible now or in the future as long as Hamas remains intact and in control of Gaza.
Fresh update on "barack obama" discussed on Stephanie Miller
"A smart idea which it's not it's absolutely not there's there's one human being on this planet who has elected as far electoral as count goes has defeated Donald Trump in a major election and that is Joe Biden yeah there's no question I know I love Gavin Newsom I love some of the democratic bench obviously we've got a great bench lined up but none of them have defeated Joe Biden in I mean defeated Donald Trump in an election so it's ludicrous that we're sitting here having this conversation about something that never happens and when it does yeah usually that incumbent loses the election yeah I'm about to get in a fight with Malcolm Nance who could kill me with one finger or perhaps his spy ring yeah but I don't know not to argue with Malcolm Nance when he's right no I don't know if he was saying you you if know Biden you know decided to retire he's saying here's the next you know president Kamala Harris I'm with down that but if it's Biden's choice I don't know it but if Malcolm meant he should step down that I couldn't I disagree more I think that's an incredible gift Republicans to have a successful and decide to step down yeah yeah I mean Joe Biden stepping down would be an extreme an extreme circumstance and I think doing just willy -nilly saying okay well maybe you sit down now I think is a disaster in the waiting I mean it's gonna be an s -show with every crack getting into the mix and the Democrats in disarray mean that would arise as a consequence of all that yeah it's just a disaster in the waiting that would only help Donald Trump and just the very fact that they're running in the first place weakens Joe Biden it generates this idea well there's blood in the water at look all these Democrats these Democrats must know something if they're running against Joe Biden thinking that he's too old or the economy is jankier than the numbers indicate and so that's a just the very of existence these primary challengers yeah weakens the incumbent and makes it more likely likely that Donald Trump's is gonna win exactly as you tweeted Trump one won't end inflation two will trigger a recession like like all Republican presidents and three will take away your health insurance every vote against Biden is a vote for economic disaster among many other disasters I mean that's the other thing is his insane hatred of Barack Obama talking again about he's gonna get rid of Obamacare this time which hasn't at this point now I don't know sixty seventy percent approval rating and I assume his health care plan will be here in two weeks yeah he no has plan other than to do it it's like this great woman from tiktok we played yesterday about all the people it's just they just want to tear everything down starting with Trump on down to these third -party candidates it's like you know the home improvement show where all you do is demolish with no plan right you know yeah yeah yeah yeah chaos is the new cocaine I mean it's a lot of people are really really into that so it's a it's just a it's last week say libertarianism is Scientology for but that was mine I mean I made the libertarian one that was a creation of my own the the chaos is the new cocaine is from the morning show I just want to make sure oh that's on Apple TV yes I'm quoting a show there's a hot lesbian there I've seen it oh yeah yeah all right so there it is yeah anyway Julianna Margulies is having sex with Reese spoon I am there yeah well I mean you know when it comes down to the economy it just drives me bananas that every time we an face election with a Democrat and especially a Democratic incumbent right we end up back in this place where people forget that Republicans are a disaster for the economy every time a Republican is in of control the White House they preside over a recession of some significant depth Donald Trump you know the most recent Republican I can't believe we're sitting here with Donald Trump as a contender again but given the fact that Donald Trump presided over not one major recession but in 2019 prior to COVID he presided over a manufacturing recession and this is the guy who was supposed to be building things and with his infrastructure weeks and all that stuff it ended up in a manufacturing recession and so yes I heard you correct yourself on the Bob Siska show with co -host Jody Hamilton. Jody Hamilton is the Kevin Bacon broadcasting of at this point. Yes. There is just one degree everywhere but that you said every Republican has brought us a recession I think because you'd said on the show last week last one or last two you're like everyone since Taft right? Yeah exactly silly me I said oh you have a last couple of Republican presidents it's yeah as you said it's every Republican president since Taft has presided over a recession and he would have if he could have gotten out of the bathtub but he couldn't. Yeah exactly right well there was a couple of them inherited that a recession but statistically speaking every Republican president since Taft has presided over a recession and good lord if you want another one you know who to vote for yeah but but why on earth would you do that? The economy is significantly improving in fact third quarter GDP just was revised up from I think 4 .9 % to 5 .2 % yeah that's that's the growth of the economy right there in a very easy to understand number and yet people like duh let's let's try the idiots again who always crash the economy what's wrong with you what is wrong with the yeah I mean I think we've got a serious short -term memory issue yeah once again we're up against the media you tweeted or you retweeted Matt Gertz who said ABC CBS NBC news programs 18 times more coverage of deplorables than vermin yeah then Trump directly putting a Hitler speech so obviously today's outdoor bike day as it always when is you're here but I did a 40 -mile ride this last Saturday and I was thinking of you because the last 10 miles were uphill and I thought that's gonna be this election that's gonna be the last 10 miles fighting the third candidates -party god knows what Russia god knows what else right yeah well we all of us here in the room need to like hold hands and clutch on to each other for dear life because the next year is going to be so incredibly insane things that we have never seen before that we can never participate that's what's gonna happen this year I mean there's this collision course between Donald Trump's criminal trials in the election and the appeals and whether he's convicted and what the legal aspect of all of this is with

The Exploitation Narrative of the Democrat Party
"Need to use fancy euphemisms and terms. It's very simple. The exploitation narrative is very simple. If you are a Marxist, like most of the left are, Marxists do not believe that material wealth, whether for a country or an individual, is acquired through legitimate means, they hate it. They believe that everybody is created equal, not a constitutional sense. Basically you're unconstrained and the only limits placed upon you are in a governing system. It's as simple as this. If you got your wealth and you got wealthy you got rich of someone else. You hear it all the time. Remember Barack Obama? You didn't build that. Remember Elizabeth Warren? If you built a business, you didn't build that. The police and fire services, it's everywhere. Listen to the words of AOC, Palestinian leaders over there talking about it, The the Israelis exploited them, the exploitation narrative is everywhere. The old school ocrat, which is very few of them left, what we used to call the blue dogs, there's almost none of them left. They differed from the Republican Party on social issues. Some of them had firearms and abortion, but they generally believed in the power of America and the capitalistic They would have some probably some regulatory reforms and maybe a higher tax level, but believed they that the United States was generally a good place and meritocracy was the way to go. The New Democrat doesn't believe that at all. Here's the problem in the conflict brewing for them. It's Social that media is the great equalizer and the democratization of information and video where everybody's got a cell phone camera. It's not easy to pitch the exploitation narrative anymore and Democrats up on the hill are eating themselves alive
A highlight from SBF Trial, Day 9: Nishad Singh Describes Former FTX CEO as a Bully and Big Spender

Thanks for tuning in to the Unchained Recap for Day 9 of the criminal trial for Sam Bigman -Fried. In devastating testimony for the defense, former FTX head of engineering Nishad Singh detailed instances of bullying behavior from ex -CEO Sam Bigman -Fried and numerous times when SPF used customer funds to fuel his spending spree. Singh described an organization that allegedly defrauded FTX customers by freely spending customer assets on ill -advised investments, sponsorships, and political action, all at Bankman -Fried's direction, and a leadership style that browbeat and belittled anyone who disagreed with him or expressed concerns. Singh's testimony echoed comments by the prosecution's other two star witnesses during the first two weeks, former Alameda CEO Caroline Ellison and former FTX chief technology officer Gary Wong. I was blindsided and horrified. I felt really betrayed. That five years of blood, sweat, and tears from me and so many employees driving towards something that I thought was a beautiful force for good had turned out to be so evil, Singh said. I knew that customers were betrayed. So many customers had to put their trust in us. Singh, who came across as earnest and is having a strong conscience, told jurors that SPF continued to spend excessively even after learning of an $8 billion hole in Alameda's balance sheet that mushroomed as the crypto market slumped following the collapse of the I deficit. learned of the hole and even after that, implicitly and explicitly, I greenlit transactions that I knew must have been digging the hole deeper and therefore coming from customer funds, Singh said. Singh, who was Bankman -Fried's younger brother's friend and had known SPF since high school, was initially intimidated by the defendant after joining Alameda in 2017. But he lost faith in SPF amid his dismissiveness and seeming dishonesty to where company's financial management. I had a lot of admiration and respect for him, Singh said. Over time, I think a lot of that eroded, and I grew distrustful. Singh described his increasing concern about Bankman -Fried's spending even as the company sank deeper into debt. I'd frequently go to Sam and express that I thought that the spend was too large or that it didn't make sense, in essence, a bad business decision. And I also would express that I felt kind of embarrassed and ashamed of how much it all reeked of excess and flashiness. It didn't align with what I thought we were building a company for. Some examples of the excess were that Alameda had invested $1 .5 billion into Bitcoin miner Genesis digital assets in early 2022, as well as $500 million into AI startup Anthropic and $200 million into incubation firm K5, founded by Michael Kives. The K5 deal accelerated after SPF attended a Super Bowl -related party in Los Angeles with several top A -list celebrities. Hillary Clinton, Doug Emhoff, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Kate Hudson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jeff Bezos, Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos, Kendall Jenner, Kris Jenner, and Corey Gamble. Singh said SPF described the event as, quote, the most impressive collection of people he had ever seen in one location, adding that the FTX co -founder told him that if asked, K5 could probably arrange an FTX dinner with Elon Musk, former President Barack Obama, Rihanna, and Mark Zuckerberg in a month. When Singh saw the term sheet with K5, which proposed hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses to Kives and his partner Brian Baum, as well as $1 billion for their VC firm, he was shocked. Quote, I was worried that partnering with K5 and giving them this much money would be really toxic to FTX and Alameda culture, that every day I was actively trying to espouse, I felt we all were, that politicking and social climbing was not going to be rewarded. And here we were rewarding people in exorbitant amounts, Singh said. He added that he asked SPF to use his own personal money for the deal so that it wouldn't affect the culture of FTX. Singh also detailed his shock at the $1 .1 billion FTX spent on sponsorships, such as the naming rights for the Miami Heat basketball arena and endorsements from top celebrities, including Steph Curry, Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, and Larry David. He was also uncomfortable with the spending on real estate. For instance, before they moved into their luxury penthouse apartment, Bigman Fried and his future roommates argued over where to live. The group had initially chosen a more modest apartment, but SPF wanted to check out the penthouse. Quote, Sam really liked this one, Singh said. Sam's a fan of views, and there was substantial disagreement about if we should go with it, in part because it was really expensive, in part because it's super ostentatious. When discussing it with SPF, Singh said, quote, Sam said that he would pay $100 million for the drama to just be done with and go away, which I took as a pretty clear sign that I should shut up. In September 2022, Singh had a discussion with the defendant about the lack of collateral Alameda had to support its futures trading. Singh determined that Alameda was short $10 billion of what was needed to support its trading positions and relied on its $65 billion line of credit to make up for this multi -billion dollar deficit. Bigman Fried instructed Singh to transfer SPF's Ellison's and Wong's personal SRM tokens, which were locked, and therefore illiquid, into Alameda's main trading account. Singh said the transfer was meant to fool the CFTC, or US Commodity Futures Trading Commission, by making it seem as if Alameda had posted more collateral than it had. Singh did not execute the transfer, saying that it felt wrong. He said, quote, I was fine giving up my personal assets. I'd taken on debts and given up my assets for the company countless times. But I understood the purpose of this exercise was to be, you know, to fool a US regulator and to fool employees of the company. And I wasn't comfortable doing that. Singh, who was freaking out about the possibility that FTX would be unable to meet customer withdrawals, had an evening talk with the defendant in the fall of 2022 on the palatial balcony of their luxurious apartment, which featured a swimming pool and several lounge chairs. In this talk, Singh said he was worried about Alameda's NAV, which was his euphemism for the hole, and Bigman Fried responded, quote, I'm not sure what there is to worry about. NAV is fantastic by almost any measure. When Singh asked how much Alameda was short by, SPF said, quote, that is the wrong question to be asking, and then proceeded to talk about how much he could deliver within various timeframes. Around $5 billion in 24 hours, substantially more in several weeks. And after that, quote, again, substantially more. At some point, Singh said, Jesus fucking Christ. And Bigman Fried said that his shortcoming of several billion dollars had been taxing him about 5 to 10 percent of his productivity. While Singh responded, he thought it would hit him a lot harder. The prosecutor asked Singh why he didn't leave FTX. He said he considered leaving the company every day, but added, quote, how could I live with myself if my departure precipitated a fall that might have been unavoidable? Singh details how he tried to cut costs of the company and said that at first he was, quote, pleasantly surprised and felt he was able to cut a couple hundred million dollars in spend. But further conversations with SPF made him realize that what Singh felt was, quote, an obligation was, quote, not being taken seriously since SPF was unwilling to cut endorsement and sponsorship deals that meant another $1 billion was, quote, headed out the door. After SPF returned from his Middle East fundraising trip, Singh, who so rarely met with a former FTX CEO one -on -one, said that it was an annual occurrence, met with him privately again, this time in one of Sam's apartments. After beginning by stating he was not doing well and thinking of quitting, Singh asked SPF how it was going with NAV. SPF, who was standing in the kitchen with his back against the fridge, said he could raise anywhere from $0 to $5 billion. He told Singh the main plan was to make FTX a success and said to Singh, quote, that depends a huge part on you. You're one of the few people, Nishad, that can take that kind of work off my plate so I can focus on the rest of this. Singh admitted he had been afraid to ask SPF for the meeting and said that he felt the defendant was, quote, very mad and that the meeting was tense with, quote, long periods of silence. Then he listed some of what he called Sam's tells for when he's upset and how SPF showed them in this conversation. Quote, puffed out his chest, hands back. He was grinding his finger, closing his eyes, grinding his teeth or tongue in his mouth. And when he opened them to respond, he would sort of glare at me with some intensity. I ended up apologizing to him at the end for asking for the meeting because I could tell it was so unwelcome. Singh pleaded guilty to charges related to violating campaign finance laws, which involved letting donations be made at his name even though they were funded from Alameda or as a borrower from FTX. Some of these loans were used for Bank One Three's political donation campaign and to fund his brother's political action committee, guarding against pandemics. Additionally, he said he participated in falsifying and backdating FTX's 2021 revenue numbers for auditors. SPF wanted FTX's revenue, which stood at 950 million dollars for the year, to be one billion dollars because FTX's revenue would show up on a spreadsheet that would be presented to investors. SPF proposed creating fake revenue backdated throughout the year from charging for offering staking services of serum. When withdrawals began to accelerate on November 5th, Singh became, quote, concerned that this might spell doom and the end of our fraud. Since he knew customers who expected full access to their assets did not know that they were not backed. Although Singh seemed to have a strong sense of right and wrong, even he ended up doing things he wasn't proud of. Around this time, he sent SPF a signal message asking if he could, quote, make some fictitious transactions that it looks like I had paid off this amount that I owed. Singh explained that he meant backdated transactions, which was, quote, something I knew could be done because Sam had proposed it once to me in other contexts. Singh acknowledged this, quote, felt wrong and said he wasn't trying to excuse himself, but said, quote, I was in different levels of having a right mind throughout these days. On November 6th, he said a war room meeting gathered in one of Bankman -Fried's apartments. It was attended by Singh, SPF, Ellison, Wong, Romnick Aurora, and by phone, head of FTX Digital Markets, Ryan Salem, who all were workshopping a draft tweet thread by Bankman -Fried. Quote, there was a point when they were discussing whether or not to characterize FTX as solvent or well -capitalized. I felt very uncomfortable with both definitions, Singh said. I felt neither was true. Singh leaned over the couch to say something like, quote, I'm not comfortable with this. I'm recusing myself. He testified. They acknowledged in a kind of annoyed way and proceeded. Singh had wanted to halt withdrawals rather than make a statement about FTX's strength. He said, quote, I'd overheard in the conversation opinions that these tweets should be really strong, which I understood to be a euphemism for particularly misleading in such a way that will quell fears definitively. On November 8th, via signal chat, Singh and Bankman -Fried discussed the fact that lawyer Dan Friedberg was angry and that Salem might resign. Singh then wrote, quote, they may need to know that it wasn't a ton of people orchestrating it. In testimony, Singh explained, quote, I really wanted Sam to clarify what everyone's role in this fraud was. I wanted him to clarify that I wasn't orchestrating it and that I learned about it really late. I wanted Sam to clarify that he was orchestrating it. I was certainly guilty for participating in it since September, but don't feel I made the whole. And secondly, I wanted the state of my relationship with these people I loved and tried to do right by, to remain intact and for them to not hate me. It was during this part of his testimony that Singh revealed he had been, quote, suicidal for days shortly after his direct testimony ended, meaning that Tuesday morning he will face his cross -examination. Unchained will be back for more recaps tomorrow. And if you like, you can also get real -time updates on my Twitter feed at Laura Shin at around lunchtime and after 4 .30 PM when court lets out. Thanks and see you tomorrow.
RFK Jr. Backtracks on Calling the NRA a 'Terror Group,' Endorsing Dems
"It's clear that he's going to seek some support from conservatives. So as I said with the speaker's raise if you never fall in love with personalities and you fall only in love with outcomes i .e. how do they vote and do they do conservative stuff you will never have a problem. Oh but I love Trey Gowdy. I love Matt Gaetz. I love Allen West. I love this guy. Great! I don't care. All I care about is how they vote. All I care about with RFK as well is how he would vote and I'm reasonably confident that a guy who tweeted out that the NRA was a terror group has voted or supported publicly every Democrat of the last 20 or 30 years voted for Obama and endorsed every Democrat is not going to do any conservative stuff so when you don't fall in love with politicians and you stick with outcomes you will never ever be steered wrong. Jim if you would up queue for me cut seven here's RFK who doesn't seem to have an answer. Do you still think the NRA is a terror group? I support the second amendment like I do all the amendments of the Constitution. I didn't ask you if you support the second amendment you called in 2018 you said Parkland students are right the NRA is a terror group do you believe that? I don't consider the NRA a terror group. Do you I don't recall tweeting it in 2018 but if I did as I said Sean I don't consider them a terror group and I support the second amendment. Do you regret endorsing Al Gore John Kerry Barack Obama Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders over the years. I got it. I don't have it. I don't recall endorsing Bernie Sanders I like Bernie Sanders I voted
Sen. Tom Cotton: Obama-Biden Policies Elevated the Iranian Regime
"When in reality, Iran is a radical, theocratic dictatorship and will never be anything but as long as the Ayatollah's government, that's why they fund and fuel groups like Hamas and Hezbollah who are dedicated not just to killing Jews in Israel but to killing Americans as well. And President Biden's policies are simply a resurrection of Barack Obama's policies, in many cases run by the same people who made Iran policy and the Obama administration have projected weakness, they have empowered Iran and therefore they have empowered Iran's proxies like Hamas. And still to this day, even when you look at his speeches, the president yesterday refused to say the word Iran. He talked about any country, he refused to mention Hezbollah, he talked about any organization, like he apparently will not say even the names of our enemies for fear of provoking them or angering them, when in reality what we should be saying directly, not just some unnamed organization or unnamed nation, is if Iran or Hezbollah take advantage of the situation, we will crush them as well. We mentioned in passing at the White House, and what he didn't do today, is this, Senator Cotton, we focus on this six billion dollars, bad which is enough, and it's not just the availability of money at some point to be used for terrorism, it is the fact that we would give six billion dollars to an enemy that is trying to build nuclear weapons on ICBMs aimed at the United States, have sent an assassin to the United States to kill a former Secretary of State, former head of the National Security Council, and a country that is the regime that has killed American soldiers, created horrific casualties, you're a combat veteran, you know this yourself, and we give them six billion dollars, let's pretend they to use buy it flowers, why would you give them six
You CANNOT Be Pro-Palestinian and Anti-Israeli
"Guys I said it when Mike Gallagher was online and Mike will be joining us again at the top of the next hour but you cannot be pro -Palestinian and anti -Israeli. It simply cannot happen. I do want to debunk some of the myths. I was on Officer Tatum's program last night and I feel like this is very very important because you have people that really believe sincerely believe that they're pro -Palestinian and and they're showing their support for Palestinians if you will which by the way there's no such thing as a as a Palestinian. That was a political term created in 1967 but we'll get to that another another day but nonetheless we're talking about Arabs. So let's say Palestinian, Palestinian Arabs. If you claim that you support Palestinian Arabs saying you cannot be anti -Israel you've been brainwashed. We've got a lot of audio clips that we're going to play for you. I'll talk to you about what's happening at Harvard. Some of these schools are producing more Barack Obama's are producing well Joe Biden is dumb as a box of rocks but producing more more Barack Obama's and I want to tell you why that is so so so crucial and scary quite frankly. What we've seen what Israel has experienced is even worse than our 9 -11 when you consider the size when you consider the population of Israel. Israel is surrounded by Arab nations and people that want to kill them and so I am not I'm sorry that's the way that I'm framing it if you claim that you're pro -Palestinian and listen I am pro -Arab. I want the Arabs that are not being bullied and tortured and treated badly by the Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran. I want all of these people to be able to thrive to live out their lives to to to I don't know to the best of their their ability that is not going to happen with Hamas and Hezbollah in the region. Israel is not to blame for the suffering of Hamas or I'm sorry for the suffering of Palestinians in Gaza. All right there's these there's a lot of people that have been online even in x -spaces. I've listened to one a couple of days ago that absolutely terrified me. The anti -Israeli the pro -Hamas they're not pro -Palestinian again again you cannot you cannot claim that you're pro -Palestinian and be anti -Israel.
Our Founding & History Are Under Assault by the Democrat Party
"More and more household products from incandescent light bulbs to dishwashers while creating shortages and driving up costs of others. Crime is out of control in our streets public transportation and schools while police budgets are slashed and many prosecutors and judges cobble violent criminals. Our borders are wide open to millions of foreigners who seek entry into the country as drug and criminal cartels ship killer drugs into our country by the tons and brutalize migrants using by them as indentured servants and sex slaves and the list goes on The Democrat Party's response for most of this and much more that seeks to permanently control our governmental institutions just as it dominates our cultural entities from the media to academia from entertainment science seeks to delegitimize and eviscerate the Constitution including the Bill of Rights the Electoral College the Supreme Court separation of powers and so forth which obstructs its ideological designs It abuses the rule of law by targeting its political opponents for harassment investigation and prosecution and in the end it seeks to imprison them On October 30, 2008 when Barack Obama shouted to a crowd about that we are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America He was not kidding On May 14, 2008 when Michelle Obama pronounced that we're going to
A highlight from Elon Musk's ESG Con (Feat. Eric Roesch)
"Welcome back everyone, I am Cas Pianci. I'm joined as usual by my partner in crime, Mr. Bennett Tomlin. How are you today? I'm doing pretty well. How are you Cas? I'm doing good. It's early morning here, but today we're joined by a really special guest, somebody who's going to be chatting us through some really fun kind of concepts of fraud, individuals involved that I'm surprised we haven't discussed before. Eric Roche. How are you today, sir? I'm all right. How are you guys? Hanging in there. As you said, when we first jumped on, there's a lot of fraud in the world and it is hard to find the time to constantly look into it, which is your job. I reached out to you because I've been reading some of your Elon Musk work, which has been incredibly informative. I'm honestly shocked that Bennett and I have never discussed, I guess we've never discussed in an episode, Elon Musk and our issues with him. I mean, I've made a bunch of videos and stuff about it. Yes. On your personal channel you have. You and I, who I think we almost equally don't like this guy, have somehow avoided this topic. But Eric, your work on SpaceX and some of the permitting, the issues around the chemicals and the sheer like, I don't give a shit about these regulations, been on the front lines of this. Can you talk about why you're so into this, why you're so fascinated by it? I actually want to start with a story from 1959. This is actually a piece I'm working on. We're going to go to the corporate headquarters of the Chisso Corporation in Myanmar, a province in Japan. In December of 1959, the CEO of the Chisso Corporation, which was a chemical company, had a big PR presentation. The company had just installed a new water purification system for their wastewater system, and he famously took a glass of water out of the bottom of this purification vessel and he drank it as a PR stunt. Just that moment in time is really interesting for me because it was preceded by multiple decades of the Chisso Corporation dumping organic methylmercury into the Bay of Myanmar. It's an organic liquid. It goes to the bottom. It bioaccumulates as it kind of goes up through the ecosystems. The bacteria will kind of incorporate the methylmercury. It stays in the cells and it'll go up to the muscles and then the fish. Cats started eating it and they started showing weird symptoms. Children started getting sick. The effects of this disease have gone on and it's still actually going on today. The reason that moment in time is so interesting is that people knew in advance that there were problems. It was very clear that this was the one kind of chemical dirty company in the area. And so it was easy for people to point at it. And what's really interesting about that PR event is that that was forced to be installed because finally government took action and this is in 1959, but they actually didn't stop discharging that chemical for about a decade afterwards. And what's fascinating about it is that treatment technique was basically to get out particulates didn't actually treat the methylmercury. The other reason I bring it up is that for the PR stunt and the fact that it was ineffective and then also the costs over this huge period of time were something that shareholders in the company would have wanted to know. That's something that we would have wanted to discuss. And so that's why my blog is kind of focused on these kind of ESG topics, which has become this really kind of crudely discussed topic. But really, it's about disclosure and how fraudulent things, fraudulent risks can kind of manifest in ways that people don't understand until after the fact. That's where I want to start off that discussion. That's an interesting story you told because I'm imagining this executive drinking this cup of water to prove it's clean. And I'm reminded of a more recent political event that kind of aped that same imagery. And I'm, of course, thinking of Barack Obama visiting Flint, Michigan, after they had completed the first wave of fixing some of the water issues. Yes. And they were holding this big press conference and he makes a big deal of getting this glass of water, he says is straight from the tap, and he drinks it up to prove it safe. Do you have any thoughts on that imagery, that parallel imagery between those two? Well, the reason I brought it up is is specifically because of that. Well, there's also an example where Halliburton executive and I believe Dick Cheney was at this event as well. They drank basically a diluted version of the fracking fluid out of out of champagne glasses and I will see it safe. And it's really fascinating because it's like, you know, look at like basically that was the first example of that. And we keep doing that. And Obama, I think he's kind of at the inflection point of why we are where we are. And he's a really great Segway into like Musk and how he's become kind of untouchable. How are you drinking the glass of water still? Right. Because even if even if it had a toxic amount, right, methyl mercury is dangerous because it accumulates slowly over time and then works its way up to the food chain. So you could drink glass that has a decent amount of methyl mercury in it. And like that water isn't going to do anything. You have to drink that same glass of water. You have to eat those shellfish or those oysters, you know, every day for years. And then it builds up, kind of manifests in this debilitating disease that the Obama example is exactly why I still bring that case up, because it's like, have we actually learned nothing? I actually have an even more recent example of exactly the same thing, which is crazy. But I don't know if you guys are familiar, there's a YouTuber named Kyle Hill who does science science YouTube stuff. And he was invited to Fukushima because, as you guys know, they're going to be releasing this this radioactive water that they've accumulated because they've if anyone is unfamiliar, they've had to kind of take seawater, pump it into this completely effed up clear reactor core and basically make sure that it doesn't explode again. And they're storing this water because they don't want to just pump it straight out into the ocean. Well, now they're going to be pumping it straight out into the ocean after they've tried to kind of dilute it down and ensure that it's not super full of radiation. But they're getting pushback from places like China and South Korea who are saying, hey, we're not going to eat your fish anymore. We're not going to eat your food anymore. Like this is unacceptable what you're doing. To be fair, I don't think this is on par with any of the things we've discussed so far. I'm bringing it up because Kyle Hill went to a Fukushima tour and they did exactly what you're talking about. They pulled out bottles of water and said, here, everyone, look at this radioactive water. It's not even radioactive. You guys are fine. Nothing's happening. You're you're not getting hit. Your Geiger counters aren't going crazy. Well, it turns out that they're using plastic bottles. So this is, I think, theta radiation. It doesn't go through thick plastic bottle anyway. Like nobody is drinking it. Nobody is doing like any of the proof isn't actually proof. This is actually part of what we're talking about in that this is just PR shit, whether it's Obama doing it, the Fukushima plant doing it, or in the 50s, Chisso Chisso. That's the other thing. All right. So the Fukushima water rights, you look at the data they've presented. I actually think it's probably not a problem because it's above background. That brings up the question, why do we distrust it? Right. And the Chisso Corporation is a perfect example. Well, you know, the government's lied about this before. It's the same thing that leaves a lot of vaccine skepticism we see about these things don't just come from nowhere. Right. So you see, you know, these these kinds of paranoia.

You've probably seen Jason Rantz on Fox News Channel. He's a conservative radio talk show host out of Seattle. I felt so stupid a few months ago. There was some event. I think it was in Tampa even. I was at some event and he was at a booth and like a dopey fan boy, I go creeping up to him, Jason, I'm Mike Gallagher. I'm a big fan of your work. And of course, he looked at me like I was the stalker that I was. And so when we had an opportunity to talk to him about his new book, we thought it would be fun to bring him on the show because his new book has a title that is right up my alley, What's Killing America? Inside the Radical Left's Tragic Destruction of Our Cities. Jason, admit it. When I came up to you, you were looking for security. I'm still looking for security. I'm still deeply uncomfortable. I dragged you onto the show to try to stalk you about your new book. That's how obsessed I am. Now congratulations on all the great work you do. Like I told you in person, you are fearless and man, you go into some of these cities and you've been covering for a long time now something that I really am obsessed with and that is what seems to be the Democrats' intentional destruction upon our American cities. This to me is one of the great unanswered questions. We see prosecutors that don't prosecute crime. We see cashless bail. We see the shoplifters. We see the murder, the mayhem in places like Seattle and Portland and New York and all over the country. But the big question is, if it's intentional, and I think you and I believe it is, why? Why are they doing it, Jason? So it's intentional, but I don't think they realize that the destruction that is happening as a result of their policies are actually tied to their policies. I think ultimately these are folks, and I make a differentiation between Democrats and the radical left because I don't see the Democrat party itself per se, at least not the voters, responsible for the destruction. I see the radical sect of the Democrat party, and they believe that there is going to be some short -term pain for what will ultimately be long -term gain, whether we're talking about crime, homelessness, drug use, housing costs, immigration, you name it, all of which is covered in the book. But I think they just understand that to make this kind of transformative change, you're going to have to cause some chaos. I think certainly there's some people who just like the chaos, and I think that those are the most particularly destructive people. We see some of them in local politics. I think we see some of them at the national level. But ultimately what's killing America is about why they believe what they believe and why they're implementing certain kinds of policy. What is it that motivates them? What is that ideology that motivates them? Because when you truly understand the why in addition to the what, that's when we can actually fight back and win some of these battles. Otherwise you're going into war completely blind, and that's not a great way to fight. It goes back to one of the most famous quotes of Barack Obama's presidency and the whole history of Barack Obama, we want to fundamentally transform America. And I remember when he said that, I got chills. I thought, I think he means it.

A highlight from Growing Unease: Current Administrations Approach to Security and Travel with David Bellavia
"What do you think they're doing with cash, right? What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? Yeah. What do you, it's, this is a state sponsor of terrorism. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens. America's comeback now. starts right Welcome back Financial Guys podcast. Mike Speraza in studio live today with a guest in the studio. I haven't had this in a long time. Staff Sergeant medal of honor recipient David Bellavia joining me for about a half hour today. David, thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it. Absolutely. So I'm going to stick based on your background. I'm going to stick with a lot of military stuff today and I want to start, we'll go all the way back to the beginning of the Joe Biden presidency. The Afghanistan withdrawal, in my opinion, did not go very smoothly. I'm sure many people listening agree. What were your overall thoughts of that withdrawal and how it actually ended up happening? I know we lost, you know, sadly lost 13 soldiers in that, in that withdrawal. People say we went off the wrong air base. People say that we shouldn't have gone out in the middle of the summer. There was a lot of different things there. What were your overall thoughts on that? I think it's like the worst day in American history since Market Garden. Just absolutely. And the reason why it was so difficult was it was totally unnecessary. So let's rewind to the Obama trade, Bull Bergdahl and the three first round draft picks. They get Marshall, they get MacArthur and they get Patton that end up the resurgence of the Taliban. These men not just go back to the enemy, they go back to the battlefield. They're in power when the government falls. You have misinformation coming from the White House that the president of Afghanistan is leaving with billions of dollars on his plane, which wasn't true. And then you leave the equipment, the cash. There's no recovery. We're getting reports of sales of American equipment left in Afghanistan in Southeast Asia. We're moving material across the globe. Our children will fight and pay and have to atone for these miscalculations. Let's talk about that. You being in the military and you knowing that area too, why did they just find it the easiest way out to just say, you know, just leave that billion dollar billions of dollars of equipment there and not think, again, if it was me and I'm speaking that someone that's never been in the military, but if it's me and I'm the president, I'm thinking, OK, I don't want to leave all our weaponry there. I don't want to lose any of my men. Number two. And number three, I want to make sure that everybody knows when and how we're getting out of there. And it just felt like poof. One day they said we're getting out of here. Well, it's because the military didn't make any of those decisions. I mean, look, Millie, it can criticize him. You can criticize Secretary of Defense worthy of criticism. However, none of these individuals are making decisions. This is about NGOs on the ground. This is about the State Department. So you've got Bagram Air Base, the equivalent of JFK. You've got Karzai International Airport, the equivalent of Teterboro. Right. Why would you ever do an exfil out of Karzai International Airport? It makes absolutely no sense. It's tactically unsound. But and then you've got all the ISIS -K. We retaliate from the murder of 13 of our bravest and we drop a bomb on a guy delivering water. He's on our payroll and we kill children on that. Then we take out Borat on a tuk tuk driving around like that wasn't even really what was happening. It's just a den of lies. And Tony Blinken and Jake Sullivan, all the heroes that brought us, you know, the Bergdahl deal, the Iran nuke deal. This is these. They the State Department is running all foreign policy, including what the DOD used to run. Well, that's I was going to say. I mean, I know Biden's the president, but do you blame him at all or is it everybody underneath him that, you know, maybe was giving him bad information? And again, some of these decisions, David, is Biden even involved in some of these decisions? Like, I don't even know anymore. Is he around? Is he paying attention to anything going on? Well, I mean, just from the press conferences, it was apparent he didn't know what was going on. And the great irony is that they actually were predicting that Ukraine was going to be invaded and, you know, no one believed them. So it's like you can't influence your friends. The allies don't trust you. The enemy doesn't respect you. You know, I mean, you've got Ben Rhodes is really proud of this State Department. Susan Rice loves what they're doing. But, you know, again, Americans died. And, you know, and what is the perfect culmination of the adventure in Afghanistan? Looking at your watch at Dover Air Base when bodies are coming home. I mean, nothing could you couldn't ask for a just it's it's a debacle. Yeah. And it's sad that that's that's the leader of our country there. Let's move in. You brought up the Ukraine there. So the Russia Ukraine conflict will get to Zelensky in a minute. He is as we speak in New York City right now. But so Trump's in office. We don't see many of these conflicts or any conflicts actually started under his watch. And then we have the Biden administration come in. And a year later, we have Russia invading Ukraine. Why did this happen and why? Why the timing of February of 2022? So let's go back to when we were fighting ISIS. Trump engaged and destroyed estimated some say 300 members of Wagner forces. But those were Russian nationals. We engaged. We destroyed them. What was the response from Putin? Nothing at all. So what do people in that section of the world, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, what do they respect? They respect power. They respect authority. You're not going to get any respect if you don't engage the enemy when they present themselves. I don't understand the calculus of again, I'm trying hard to figure it out. I don't get it. I don't. You know, Romania and Hungary and Poland, you're letting them unilaterally decide whether or not they want to send reinforcements into Ukraine. That's an act of war. If NATO members engage the enemy, all of NATO is engaged against the enemy. Poland doesn't unilaterally make that decision. Hungary and Romania don't unilaterally make that decision. We can't even articulate what the mission is. And if you look, go to the Institute for the Study of War, there's a plug for them. Check out their overlay from when the battle started, when the war started with Russia. And tell me what success this offensive in Ukraine has produced. I mean, let me ask this question, because I get confused. The answer is nothing. I asked this on Twitter, X, whatever it's called, all the time. What is the end game and how do we get there? Because all I see the answer is, hey, just blank checks. Hey, just write a check. Hey, here's a billion. Hey, here's 20 billion. Hey, here's another 10 billion. I don't actually see a look. I mean, like anything, right? If I write a business plan of what I want to do in 2024, my goal is X. I write down my steps to get X. I don't just write down X and say it's going to happen. I don't really know. And then the answer always is, well, we have to fight. We have to back Ukraine. Okay. But when does that end? Because the Afghanistan war and the war in Iraq lasted 20 years plus, right? And was there a real end to it? I don't know. That's where it gets frustrating for me, Dave, where I'm like, how do we know what the end game is? Do you win or lose? When does that happen? I don't know. I don't know. At least you're thinking about it. And I have fear that our leaders aren't, and that's the problem. So here's what this comes out. You're going to get a negotiated settlement out of Ukraine, right? But you talked about the billions of dollars that we're spending and giving to Ukraine as a blank check. First of all, Zelensky visited Ukrainian soldiers in the United States. Did you know that there were wounded Ukrainian soldiers in the United States? I did not know that. Well, today he visited them. So what's happening there? So that's a cost that no one is putting on the ledger. So now let's look at the blank check that Ukraine is getting. And by the way, I'm pro Ukraine. I want to fight communists all day and night. So let's punch Putin hard in the face. However, you're giving them a blank check and you're giving them munitions. Now here's the problem. We have to replace those munitions. Those munitions were purchased for 20 year global war and terror. And let's be honest, inflation is involved. So what you purchased for $10 is now $17. So you're not just giving them the money. You're giving them the equipment and the munitions that you have to replace yourself at the value of what is valued today. We haven't scratched the surface for the amount of money. CBO absent at the wheel. No one is tracking this. 2024 can't get here fast enough. How does this work, though, when you talk about some of these NATO nations coming together and making decisions, but us not just giving weaponry, giving everything money, whatever we're giving there? Is that not an act of war, too, though, David, at some point? We're continuing to fund Ukraine continuing the war in Ukraine. I mean, that to me seems like we're backing a war. Well, I mean, by the letter of the law and NATO charter, it's not. But here's the problem. It's schizophrenic because we were told that what was an offensive weapon was going to mitigate, you know, that wasn't going to help peace at all. So we went from, I don't know if they should get tracked vehicles to I'm not sure an artillery piece is what they need to high Mars rockets being launched. And let's be honest. I mean, the Ukrainians are I mean, the payload that they're going through, what you would have to have cataclysmic casualty numbers to be able to to the spandex that they're doing on the ground that they need to replace Patriot. If you're going through thirty five Patriot to, you know, missiles, I would expect to at least the C 20 makes that are shot down. They're using them for air artillery. They're using there for indirect fire. I don't know what they're doing, but this is going to end with Don Boss going to Russia. This is going to end with that land chain that Putin wanted through Crimea. And again, our friends in NATO, what are they even doing for Ukraine? What? Look, if you they said that Trump wanted to kill NATO, Biden did it. Right. Biden did it. And now Germany. And so Putin was selling oil at thirty dollars a barrel. What's it at ninety six? Yeah. He's making more money than he did before. And he's financing a war and killing innocent people. You mentioned before, too, and I think this is a good point. Everybody on the left and I'll say the media, the establishment, whoever you want to say, says that if you don't agree with the war in Ukraine, you're like pro Putin. Right. And that's just the most outrageous thing in the world, because I agree with you. I feel for the people of Ukraine. I don't want this for them. I don't want this for innocent people. However, at some point, the world's every every one of the world's problems can't be America's problem when we have a border crisis. And then I think they said yesterday ten thousand people came across. They got, I think, eight thousand of the ten thousand. But you see the numbers day over day. It's a problem. We have crime that's rampant. We have overdoses that are at record numbers. We have we have suicides at record numbers. At some point, we have to maybe just think about ourselves and not everybody else, because if we fall, sadly, I think the world falls at that point. Amen. The thing that I would add is I love the way the Ukraine refugee has been crowbarred into the migrant crisis in the United States. New York leaders from the city to all over Kathy Hochul, the governor of the state of New York, mentioning that, you know, like the Ukrainians in Poland, the the Polish have no intention to keep Ukrainians forever. That's a temporary you know, they're leaving a conflict to return to their country after the conflict is over. Again, this is just we're we're putting a round peg into a square hole and just hammering it away. But but there's no the media. There's you're our destroying military. I go to parents all the time around this country and ask them to give us their sons and daughters to join the military. And the one thing they bring up is Afghanistan. It's not about anything. It's Afghanistan. How are you going to assure us that you're going to maintain your commitment to our son and daughter when you betrayed us in Afghanistan that has lasting effects? And there's not a I'm trying to find a segment of our of our of our nation that's functioning. I don't know what it is. I saw in Chicago, they're going to have municipally owned grocery stores. Maybe that will figure it out there. Yeah, yeah, it's good. Real quick, do you think and we'll finish up on this topic, but do you think that they will we will ever have boots in the ground on Ukraine? I mean, I hope not, because I just don't know what the I mean, look at I'm I'm we're getting ready for China. We're trying to revolutionize everything. I don't know what the what the plan is. I mean, again, if you want to put a base in Ukraine, and you want to make that a sustainment operation going forward, that I here's the point. I don't understand what the inactive ready reserve call up was for. Why are you bringing those troops in the non combat support? Why are they going to Ukraine? What are you building infrastructure there? Here's what I do know. We're talking a minimum of $11 trillion to build Ukraine back. That is cataclysmic amounts of money. There isn't water, electricity, internet, you know, you want to help Ukraine. You're going to Russia is not paying for that if you negotiate a settlement. So I don't know what the plan is. But I hope we never see boots on the ground. I could guess what the plan is. I won't I won't say for sure. But I could guess that we'll be paying a chunk of that. And I do have one last one. So I did interview Colonel Douglas McGregor a few months back. And he talked about he's a real optimist. But he is really very, very bullish on Ukraine. Yes, very, very optimistic. I'm dropping some all over the place. But he brought up some staggering numbers, though. And even if they're half true, it's a problem. The amount of casualties and wounded soldiers on the Ukrainian side that we're not hearing about the media. I don't know if you agree with some of those numbers or not. But he's saying, I mean, it's people are acting as if this is an even war right now. And it's not even close. First of all, McGregor's a stud. I mean, he's an absolute, you know, that we're glad he's on our side. He's a military mind. I don't know if those numbers are accurate. I could tell you they're juxtaposed to almost everything we're hearing from every institution that we have, including a lot of our intel from Germany and England. But again, I don't know what to believe. So when you don't have when you don't have transparency, when you're not holding regular press conferences, when your Pentagon spokesman is now working in the White House and now you're getting a triple spin. I mean, the U .S. Open double backspin. You've gotten so many spins on the narrative. I don't know what to believe. But if he is even close to what is a segment of truth, you know, then look, Ukraine needs an investigation. There's a lot of investigations. We've got to start on Afghanistan. We were promised that by Speaker McCarthy. We need a hot wash on Afghanistan. And then we need to go to what who is oversighting the money that's going to Ukraine. And what have we got for our return on investment? Yeah, I'm not asking for much. Really, all I'm asking for in this conflict is can we just talk about what the end game is? And to your point, can we get an accounting of where the money's going and what's being spent in a real accounting of it? The Iran deal that just happened last week. First off, the fact that that was negotiated and completed on 11th September to me is just the ultimate slap in the face. But you again, you know more about this than I do. We do a five for five trade. OK, I'm going to use sports analogies. We trade five for five. And then we also approved of six billion dollars that apparently wasn't ours, but it was in a fund that now they can release to Iran. How are we winning on that one? Well, first of all, I was hoping that at least it was a digital transfer. The fact that it went as euros in cash through Qatar. And OK, so what happens the 24 hours after that deal is made? We're now getting issues in the West Bank. We're now hearing about issues in Yemen. We've now got Hezbollah that's reinforced. I mean, look, what do you think they're doing with cash? Right. What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? What do you it's this is a state sponsor of terrorism. They haven't changed. By the way, their president is now in New York City addressing the United Nations. This guy's killed 6500 of his own people. He admits to it. He killed the students that revolted and wanted democracy when we did nothing. He killed 5000 of his citizens in 1988. He's killed over 300 Americans. There's no accountability whatsoever. I don't understand what it is about Jake Sullivan and Tony Blinken that believe that Iran is a partner. All you've done 10 years ago, they were refining 10 percent of their oil. And now they're a force. Now they're working with Maduro in Venezuela, and they're a huge part of their members of of the international community. They're in good standing there. I don't get it. Does anyone believe that the Iran nuke deal? Look, we got hit with cruise missiles under Trump in Iraq. How did they have those cruise missiles? Those cruise missiles were illegal under the Obama nuke deal. So how are you refurbishing missiles in two years? Do we believe that their centrifuges have stopped? That they won't have a program if they don't have one already? No, I mean, I guess my question, David, is how I mean, I know that you pay a lot of attention to this stuff, but how do people like in the media not ask these questions? Right. I mean, these are legitimate. I mean, we just traded to I put this on my notes here. This is on the heels of trading a WNBA basketball player for the Merchant of Death like six months ago. Right. I mean, and again, I'm glad Americans are coming back to America. I don't want to sound pessimistic on that. That's great news. But we also I mean, this this stuff just seems like I don't care what side of the aisle you're on. It warrants questions, but nobody seems to care. I'm in the world that if you take hostages, we take hostages. You want to exchange people? We'll exchange people. You know, we definitely have the partners in the area to do that. For whatever reason, this administration, they're they're they're contrarians. They're contrarians to you know, they claim Bush and Cheney are their best friends, yet they just go 180 degrees from that doctrine. I don't know what the Biden doctrine is. I don't know what Bidenonomics is either, but I could tell you that they believe that Iran is a partner. Now, here's another thing. Our envoy to Iran not only is no longer the envoy, he doesn't have a security clearance. Does anyone curious at The New York Times as to what happened to the lead negotiator in Iran that is escorted off a bus, taken into American custody, given a job at Yale or Princeton or wherever he's working now? I've never heard of a person going from top secret classified negotiations to no clearance whatsoever and in the custody of American intelligence community. No one cares. No one cares at all. It's fascinating. And again, for me, I mean, these are big decisions that we're making. And correct me if I'm wrong, but it used to be, you know, maybe we did a two for five deal and then we made the six billion. Now we're like, we're giving stuff away and we're on the losing end. Correct me if I'm wrong, but America was never, you know, America losing. It was always America winning, right? America getting the best of deals. At least McDonald's has a five for five. We didn't even get that. You know what this does though? Honest to God, if you're thinking about traveling overseas, things go sideways, cartel, South America, Mexico, wherever you're going, you have a price in your head now. No one in their right mind is going to bring you back whether it's Haiti or wherever you are, you're worth $1 .25 billion. And thugs and scumbags are going to take advantage of that. I mean, that's a great point too. Do you think about leaving the country? I don't know anymore. That's a little bit concerning. I don't care where you're going, right? That's concerning. This one I just had to bring up because it happened two days ago or yesterday. How do we lose a plane? And I heard that's like a third one in the last six weeks that something like this has happened. How are we losing $80 million planes? Well, they're not $80 million anymore because they've got a new engine and all this other stuff. Look, the F -35 program is a complete disaster. You want to talk about why our allies think we're crazy. We sold them a plane. This program has been around since the early 90s and we've got nothing on return for it. So basically two planes are flying in a buddy team. They're doing training and a guy punches out. We don't even know why he punched out, but that plane could have easily hit a building. It didn't, thank God. But the wingman didn't follow where his buddy went. So what is he doing? He just kind of went on and did his own thing. And now the Marine Corps put a Facebook post like a dog is missing. We're expecting the Ukrainian farmers to carry the F -35 out with their tractors. I don't know what the point of it's wild. Look, stop embarrassing us. Just stop humiliating us. That's all I'm asking. Just be the army and the Marine Corps that we know our men and women are capable of being. Get out of their way. This gender garbage, this social experiment nonsense, stop humiliating our military. That's all I ask. Why can we not get the... I mean, I know why we can't get the answer, but I'm asking this to you. But why can't we, at a press conference at the White House, why can't we say, I want to talk to the guy that was in the other plane, or you can tell us the transcript of what happened when that happened. Talk to the guy who jumped out of the plane. Why did you do that? And again, I'm not trying to put our military on the spot, but these are kind of big questions to ask, right? I mean, if I do something in my business, I have to go face the music on that. Why doesn't everybody have to face music for their decisions or why things are happening? I think it's kind of important. Well, you don't want to talk to generals because they're going to tell you the truth and they won't be generals anymore. True. And you don't want to talk to enlisted people. Because look, I mean, let's be honest. How many people are... Is this a merit -based military anymore? Do we have a meritocracy? Are we promoting people based on pronouns? Go figure. When we're putting politics above military strength, accidents happen. We don't know the facts, but the fact that nobody cares about getting to the bottom of it, the day of the Pentagon paper reporters are gone. Yep. Yep. Let's just talk about the 2024 race quick, and then we will wrap up for today. So your thoughts on the Republican primary so far, I'll stay away from the Democratic side till the very end, but your thoughts on, you know, there's obviously Trump who is now in a, has a huge lead. Ron DeSantis seems to be crumbling underneath himself. Vivek Ramaswamy has jumped up in the polls. Nikki Haley's there. Tim Scott's there. A few others that probably aren't going to get a lot of votes. Chris Christie's the anti -Trump candidate. Mike Pence is, I don't know what Mike Pence is. I'm not really sure. Your thoughts about the whole field so far? I mean, look, it's impressive. They've got a deep bench. There's a lot of diversity. I, you know, none of it matters. Trump is the guy. The more you indict him, the more you empower him. You know, I'd like him to work on his communications a little bit better. You know, but if Trump is Trump, Trump is a Frankenstein monster of Barack Obama. As long as you have that faction, you're going to get, you know, Trump is going to be empowered. I just don't want to see Governor Noem anywhere near the White House. And I, if he's going to pick a running mate, you know, it's hard to find an ally here, you know. But it would be nice to find a governor. I don't want to take anyone from the Senate. I don't want to take anyone from the House with the margins that tight. But I mean, the idea that Governor Noem is being floated right now. I mean, I'd rather take North Dakota. Yeah. A little sled there. You know, it's funny you mentioned that because I saw a lot of that this weekend. I mean, can we just, for lack of a better term, keep it in our pants for about a year and then do what you got to do? It really is. I mean, every time you turn, somebody's doing something idiotic, whether it's Boebert. And again, I say this, David, a lot of people know who you are. A lot more know who you are than they'll ever know who I am. But when you go out in public into a movie theater like that, and I'm going to Boebert, not Noem for a second, you're, you're extremely well known. I don't care if it's dark or if it's as light as it is in the studio right now. What are you thinking? I, you know, she's, she's, she's an embarrassment. She is. She's bad, too. Who would have thought that Marjorie Taylor Greene would have been the, the oasis of the Maryland? I mean, seriously, I, again, you're, you're in Congress every day. You're out in public, you're on the job. You know, at least she wasn't wearing a hoodie, you know, that's all in shorts. She was at least dressed for the occasion, but I, it was, it's wildly embarrassing. Vaping, singing, whatever you're doing. Getting groped. Yes. Who is your VP candidate then? Because I think, you know, you have names thrown around. There's, there's, the vague has been thrown around in there. You know, Byron Donald's has been thrown around in there. Carrie Lake has. I don't know. I love Carrie Lake. I just don't know that Trump needs to go with somebody so divisive there. I think he's got to go with somebody that's, that's firm in their beliefs, but also not maybe going to turn off half the country. Well, you know, it's, it's impossible. One of the, one of the problems with making Trump, you know, the, the enemy of the state that the left has done is that you've really made it difficult for him to even put a cabinet together. You know, I mean, what are you going to do with it? You've got a lot of loyalists out there. You know, the vague is, is I think maybe the most intelligent dynamic candidate we've ever seen run for president, but experience does matter. But you know, I love the way he thinks. I love the movement. I don't know if he would even take the job to be honest with it. I don't think he needs it. But you look at a Tim Scott, I think Tim Scott is, you know, there's a whole lot to his message and I think he's, he's got the experience in the Senate, but honestly, you could literally take the Clint Eastwood chair and, and throw it in there as vice president. I'm going with that because this, this from top to bottom, we have to have seismic change in 24. Do you think he would ever choose Kristi Noem at this point with all that now? Yeah, no one knew Mike Pence was a, was a 24 hour story and then he was the vice president candidate. So who knows? I mean, a lot can happen between now and then, but I just, I don't need, you know, let's just pick people on their merit. Let's pick people that are ready to be the president. Imagine this, imagine picking a vice president that can lead the country. If something happens to a 75 year old president, you know, like Kamala Harris. Yeah. Someone like that.

"Union, this is something we've got to work with Congress on. We saw what happened when Barack Obama tried to address DACA unilaterally via an EO. The Republicans said they might need to impeach him over it even he said he wasn't sure he had the power to do it and then he threw up his hands and he did it. And so the reality is this is something that Congress has to address. The president only has limited power in this area. He can try to exercise that as much as possible, but it's got to be done via Congress, and that's going to require in a Congress. This closely divided that they work across the aisle. There is the will to do this. I think, to a certain extent, maybe not this year, but going forward in the Senate, but it's in the house where we're seeing this struggle. And of course, you know, we talk about immigration, but immigration touches on a whole variety of different things with the economy. I mean, I'm thinking about how we have this current labor crunch right now where Jay Paul has come out except for short over 4 million workers. Is there something that could be done that Congress should be doing or Biden should be doing to kind of use immigrants and migrants to the U.S. to bridge that gap from that labor shortage that we're currently experiencing? Yeah, absolutely. I mean, this is what's dumbfounding about the debate around immigration is we actually aren't attracting the people we need to fill the jobs that help our economy continue to grow. I mean, there is a current debate around H one B visas. These are highly skilled tech workers who have added a great deal to our economy and our competitiveness around the world. And some parts of that program are now expiring and there's no effort in the Congress right now to update that legislation to keep that program working. And in fact, many people would argue that that program needs to be significantly expanded in order to be more competitive in the U.S. for around the world. So it's just a good example of how broken our system is that you have tens of millions of jobs unfilled that immigration could help support. We're in a highly competitive tech environment around the world, especially with China and we're letting our one of our major tools of engagement in that go through various forms of expiration. And yet Congress is silent. They just want to use this opportunity to demagogue. We've seen some measures pass in the past in 2013, a very comprehensive bill went through the Senate, couldn't get through the house. I mean, it sounds a lot like what would happen this year if we had some productivity. So I just think it's one of these messages that need to go out this year before it becomes too political that the administration and Congress need to band together to find a way to solve some of these intractable problems with immigration. And the other way to do it really is through a comprehensive reform program. Sure. And of course, at this point, that seems like something that neither sides really able to dig into if there's the willingness there that's politics keeps them from doing it. Rick Jeannie, thank you so much for really covering the current immigration policy landscape seems like at this point we're going to have many more trips to the border for members of Congress, but perhaps no additional legislation to speak of at this point. Well, now let's go get a check on world and national news with Nancy Lyons in the Bloomberg 99 one newsroom in Washington. Thanks, Emily, Republican lawmakers say they want evidence on why the energy department believes the COVID-19 pandemic may have originated in a Chinese lab. The Wall Street Journal reports the assessment was based on new evidence, although the department admits it has low confidence that it's true. Doctor Jamie metzl is a senior fellow with the Atlantic council and head of one shared world. He says China needs to come forward with more information. There is absolutely no way to expect transparency and accountability in the future if we can't have it now after according to WHO estimates, 15 million people are dead from this entirely avoidable pandemic. Doctor metzl spoke with Bloomberg earlier today. The Biden administration will be defending its student debt relief plan before the Supreme Court tomorrow, Bloomberg laws June grosso. President Biden's plan is being challenged by 6 states and two students or former students, and what they're saying is that he doesn't have the authority to pass this plan.

"A debt limit catastrophe about August of 2011 and ultimately Barack Obama cut this $2 trillion spending cut deal in return for $2 trillion in debt. And remind people why it's such a big deal that we hit this debt ceiling and if we don't do something about it. Yeah, so in the best case scenario, we have about more than a trillion a year in deficits. That means basically we're borrowing a 100 billion a month on average. And that's a big chunk of the economy. So say you decided, okay, well, we're going to instantly balance the budget. That would mean you'd have a $100 billion coming out of the economy every month. Bills that were not paying, whether it be to doctors and Medicare or social security checks that are delayed or not going out. We're all sorts of other things the government pays for, and like the best case scenario where you do what the house has been talking about, which is some kind of debt prioritization where we still pay the debt coupon to the bondholders, but we're not paying maybe the Medicare doctors or the veterans benefits or something else. Even in that scenario, the economy would take a huge hit because there would be a $100 billion in less checks going into people's pockets. The worst case scenario is you actually don't pay the debt coupon and suddenly investors all around the world might say, well, maybe we shouldn't be putting our money in federal treasuries. That the U.S. defaults instead, which has never had it. The U.S. actually defaults for any period of time, then suddenly you can't base your global economy on the U.S. dollar and the federal treasuries and the rest in its potentially has a spiral cascading effect that, you know, people like Janet Yellen say could lead to a worldwide depression and or recession, and we want to avoid that. Both Republican and democratic leaders agree. And yet, you know, Kevin McCarthy says, look, we have $31 trillion in debt. We're racking up another trillion a year. We should take this moment to have an agreement to shrink it and bounce the budget. The actual cost savings to do that. So on the one hand, you have this political argument that everyone would shake their head and say, yeah, that sounds good, but then it comes down to, okay, where's that money coming from? Exactly. And I think one of the big challenges that McCarthy is going to have, you know, they're supposed to pass a budget in the house. Many years, we just decide not to pass a budget. And this budget resolution you're supposed to say, roughly where the money's coming from. If you're going to balance the budget, you know, usually what they do is they put a bunch of magic asterisks in this budget to claim that they got to a balanced budget without raising taxes. It's just going to be a very fascinating thing if he can actually get to 218 out of 222 to vote for this thing, which they have not yet written will be challenging to do. Now we've both been around long enough to have seen how many of these debt ceiling fights and in the end, the story is always people met behind closed doors and they struck a deal in Ye were all saved. Is there any reason to think that in the end this is going to be any different? I think that this is likely to be like a lot of other ones. One reason why you might have optimism that there's going to be a deal is you already have a number of individual House Republicans

"It almost has to say to some of the kids in here. You know some of the parents had to do. Supply DNA supply DNA. Is there 15 just rips the body apart? Could not identify. Could not identify the body. Now, 20 year old cake can walk in and buy one. DNA. To say that's my baby. What the hell's the matter with us? You could hear a pin drop there, Rick. You know that Joe Biden, you've worked with him over the years. Does that play on a national audience tomorrow? Yeah, look, I think if he can connect with that kind of passion and spirit, he can't go wrong, right? The biggest gripe about Joe Biden as a speech maker is that he kind of just babbles along and gets off script and you lose your way along the path of the speech. And this was really clear and really forceful. And even the rhetoric, as grizzly as it was, it did leave an impact, as you say, not a you could hear a pin drop. So it'll be interesting to see if he can muster that. The last guy who gave this speech was Barack Obama at his nominating conference convention. When he said that our democracy was at risk in this election. And I suspect he'll take some of the themes that Barack Obama had at the time. When I think most commentators thought, wow, that's kind of over the top. Is it really? Yeah. We've learned. Yeah, maybe it is. So I think it'll be interesting. It's obviously a different venue. It's hard to have that kind of passion. You know, speaking from The White House, it's usually much more formal. And yet I think that's probably Joe Biden at his best. Yeah. Wow. Jeannie, to Rick's point. A lot of people have made fun of this president criticized him for the sort of the low tones in which he speaks. Sometimes the microphones have trouble picking him up sometimes he gets lost in his own words. It goes off script with the ad libbing, coughing, it brings up questions about his age and his competency. Who's this guy? I mean, is this a matter of napping or is it a matter of actually being passionate about what he's talking about? You know, I think it's a matter of being the authentic Joe Biden who we, you know, many people saw in the 2020 election who seemed to sort of be a little bit off track in the first year to a certain extent. And because these are things that Joe Biden has long talked about and actually believes in. And so I think it's an issue of passion you're right. He does get off track. He goes long. He banters and he's got to be careful about that. But he's also got to rely on his team for that. And I think this is a big test for him. This is going to be a peek into the closing argument that the Democrats are going to be making as they move into this really, really tough election year in which they're likely going to lose the house and may, in fact, lose the Senate, but giving it a really good try and he's going to be leading that charge. Did I say the wrong thing with napping? I could use a nap. I mean like a good nice rest, Rick. I mean, I'm not kidding. I mean, don't you, it's getting up there in age. Can I say, look, it's always hard on the president to keep his stamina up because he's always over scheduled, and he's always in demand, and it's hard. I mean, it's hard to be president of the United States. Absolutely. That being said, these are big moments. They tend to be scripted well in advance, you know, the schedule running up to them will ensure that he said maximum performance, right? I mean, that's the job of the staff to know. Absolutely. Don't over pack his schedule the day before and so forth, right? Yeah. And I think the performance side of this, we're going to know soon. Whether or not he was up for this. But I think what's really interesting about this is he stepping away from the accomplishments, right? What ran up his numbers in the last couple of months? It's the successes that his administration has had legislatively by and large. And the reality is he's kind of stepping away from that and picking a fight with the maga agenda by saying, you know, there's a better way to do public safety. My way. There's a better way to do democracy my way. I mean, there's a way to maintain the rule of law. And maga isn't it. And so if this is going to be a big contrast between the soul of the nation and maga, I really, I'm curious how he'll weave in what has actually been successful. I think if you want a speech to give on the eve of the fall election, you talk about what you've been able to accomplish that people actually are giving you credit for. I'm guessing we're not going to hear in the battle for the soul of the nation about the chip act tomorrow Genie, am I wrong? No, you're right. And it's a really important point, Rick makes. I mean, it doesn't sound at least what we're hearing like they're going to be stressing this list of really important accomplishments. That said, I think what has struck me is the fact that he, you know, for a long time, he was sort of trying to ignore Donald Trump. Now we see Joe Biden in the administration saying, okay, he's taking up the oxygen. We're benefiting from it and we're going to use it to our advantage. We're going to tell you how extreme he and his followers are and how we represent the all important middle. And I think we're seeing the Biden

"Of the Mexican border is America's front yard And we're equal people We don't dictate what happens in any other part of this continent or the South American country We have to work very hard on it But the trouble is we're having great difficulty making up for the mistakes that have been made to last for years And it's going to take some time Yes down on the back And then I'll go to this side okay Thank you mister president Alexander nazarian Yahoo News And thank you for holding this press conference I hope there's more of them We have extra three hours We can do it We'll stay for a couple more You said you were surprised by Republican obstruction of your agenda But didn't the GOP take exactly the same tactic when you were vice president to Barack Obama So why did you think they would treat you any differently than they treated him First of all they weren't nearly as obstructionist as they are now Number one they stated that but you had a number of Republicans we worked with closely From John McCain I mean a number of Republicans we were closely with Even back in those days Lindsey Graham and so the difference here is who seems to be a desire to work on that I didn't say my agenda I'm saying what are they for What is their agenda They had an agenda back in the administration When the 8 years we were trading vice president But I don't know what their agenda is now What is it The American public is outraged about the tax structure we have in America What are they proposing to do about it Anything Have you heard anything I've been anything I haven't heard anything The American public is outraged about the fact that the state of the environment the vast majority of the public What have they done Anything to ameliorate the climate change that's occurring other than the night exists So what I'm saying is the difference between then and now is not only the announcement that was made anything to stop Barack Obama I get that part But what eventually happened we were able to get some things done We were able to work through some things On the stuff that was really consequential in terms of ideologically divisive it was a real fight But so but I don't think there's a time when I wonder what would be the Republican platform right now What do you think What do you think the position on taxes What do you think your position on human rights I think their position is on whether or not we should what we should do with the cost of prescription drugs What do you think I mean I just I honestly don't know what they're for yet I know a lot of these senators and congressmen And I know they do have things they want to support Whether they're things I want or not but you don't hear much about that And every once in a while when you hear something where there's a consensus it's important but a small item And it doesn't get much coverage at all Where it occurs I'm not being coverage I mean there's not much discussion about it So I just think it's a different and I don't know that no matter how strongly one supports the Republican and or supports the president the former president of the United States I don't know how we can't look at what happened on January 6th and think that's a problem That's a real problem One more question mister president By the way it's a quarter of guys Now so I'm going to do this If you manage to be easy questions I'll give you a quick answer There's an increasing concern I think among some Democrats that even if schools do continue to open and I get that most of them are now open Republicans will weaponize this narrative of you and other leading Democrats allowing them to stay closed in the midterms next year And obviously that issue has a lot of traction with suburban parents As I think confused by the question I'm sorry Well that could school reopenings or closures become a potent midterm issue for Republicans to win back the suburbs Oh I think it could be but I hope we've got that there That look Maybe I'm kidding myself But as time goes on the voter who is just trying to figure out as I said how to take care of their family put three squares on the table stay safe able to pay their mortgage or their credit et cetera Is becoming much more informed on the Motives of some of the political players and some of the Political parties and I think that they are not going to be a susceptible to believing some of the outlandish things that have been said and continue to be said You know every president not necessarily in the first 12 months every president first couple years most every president over the last 5 years at least four of them have had total numbers that are 44% Favorable So this idea that but you all not you all but now it is more Biden that one poll showed him at 33% The average is 40 four 45% One polem at 49% I mean the idea that The American public or China sift their way through what's real and what's fake.

My son Gabe has his second day of school and the New York Post points out this morning. This will be the ultimate covid test. I must tell you, you know you mentioned Biden earlier, Bernard getting booed down at the ceremony Saturday. A lower Manhattan 9 11. The photo that I saw Was really sickening. It was Barack Obama. And even though I like Barack when you initially one, you know my feelings. He spent eight years as a feckless just a terrible president. He's there with his wife. Then you have the Clintons. Then you have Biden and his wife, Jill, and then I think I saw Mike Bloomberg. I'm not sure, but it was just It was like a just a line of losers. I mean, one after another. And I'm not. I don't name call these folks all that often. I really don't. But as I look down the line in this picture, I couldn't find one person I liked. Not one. Pelosi is sitting in Rudy Giuliani's seat. You should have seen Rudy Giuliani. I don't know. What was he not on the days at that Pelosi had his seat, ridiculous. And he's getting smeared all over social media, the daily Mail, etcetera etcetera for a speech he gave its Cipriani's And Miranda Devine tweeted out. I was there. It's all alive. They claiming that he was, you know, he was not in his right mind or something like that, because he called. What's his name in a hole? He isn't it? Yeah. You know what? I'm just saying that that's out there that they're trying to smear Rudy Giuliani on, uh, speech he gave on 9 11, Americans, mayor and what he said. Even if it is true, Let's say it's true more into the vine is wrong. It wasn't that bad. I mean, he called out people who deserve to be calling. Perfect. It was right on it was spot on is what it was Rudy Giuliani. Another guy who didn't distinguish himself was George W. Bush. He was down there and he was actually we're going to play the clip. He was actually, uh, he invoked the January six riots as though they were in any way shape or form comparable to what happened on 9 11. We didn't I swear to God take a listen We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders but from violence that gathers within there's little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But then there's just staying for tourism in their disregard for human life in their determination to defile national symbols. They are Children of the same foul spirit, and it is our continuing duty to confront them. There you go. 43 should know. But others. I know he hates trump. Unbelievable. Come on, you talk about the ultimate Ryan. Oh, Yes, I guess that's that. He really does hate President Trump but does nevertheless, you don't defile and, uh, you know, just to associate January six with 9 11. By anybody. And of course they've done it on fake news, MSNBC push it no better. He was the presidential start. I mean, there's only one day in the history of this country you could ever mentioned in the same sentence as 9 11 1 Day, and that's Pearl Harbor. Anything else? Your embarrassment. You're insulting and really being very disrespectful to the 3000 folks have died that day Harbor 9 11. That's it. The January 6th Day. Is more comparable to any given night, any given night in Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Seattle, Portland two summers ago. Any given night. Do you know that more kids have been, uh, shot in Chicago? More kids have been shot in Chicago to this point this year than have died of covid. That's right the whole year. That's right, and more kids have been murdered in Chicago, then have died of Covid in the whole state of Illinois. That's a fact that nobody seems to care about that, because again we know it's all political is what is speaking of political your boy Chuck Todd had on the man who's going to save this nation that his name is Joe Manchin. He is going to save the nation. This $3.5 trillion monstrosity. That's uh, cradle to grave bunch of crap. It's not infrastructure infrastructure package, you know they used to. I don't know if you remember this saying they said this phrase. In this nation that you know we provide a safety net. We provide a safety net, not a hammock, and they want to provide a hammock. Of course, that we go right back to that. They are looking to provide a hammock everybody with their hands out. And, uh, you know, you screw the makers. And, Yeah, you just give everything to the takers. The next thing you know they were. There are not enough makers to give to the takers and everything falls apart. Ohmygod. That was great. You rhymed a lot of stuff there. It's true, though its makers and takers and but Congress just enforced, Congressman King said, right where you are, and he said to me that Joe Manchin, he believes will hold the line on this $3.5 trillion package. I said that they already spent over $5 Trillion by the way. And inflation is skyrocketing. Uh, whatever you actually you were on the other side. You kept saying mentions going to fold mix. It's gonna fall I did hold it and I was just going to say that I I disagreed with Peter Craig King and I said he was going to fold as well. But he was on with schmuck to Chuck. Todd. Excuse me. I reserve that for Schumer. And he was also on state. He was all over the fake news yesterday, telling them that he ain't voting for this. Bill. Listen to this. He will not have my vote on 3.5. And Chuck knows that and we've talked about this. Um, we've already put out 5.4 trillion and we try to help Americans and everywhere we possibly can and a lot of the help that we put out there is still there, and it's going to run clear until next year. 2022..

You know, this reminds me of Randy. What's that? In the 2000 and eight Democratic primary. Remember, it went to Iowa and it was on the Democratic side. It was Hillary Clinton. Who was then a U. S senator for New York. It was Barack Obama, who was then a U. S senator from Illinois. And it was John Edwards, who was the vice presidential nominee. E for John Kerry, the senator from North Carolina. Don't forget Dennis Kucinich. I think he was out by then, or at least he wasn't polling in the money. It was the three of them that were competing for that state. And Hillary's biggest surrogate. Was Bill Clinton, who traveled to that state to campaign on her behalf. And you know that was a historical moment, Randy. Because that was the first time Bill Clinton got on a plane for a three way and didn't participate. So look for that in your history books.

The big lie take a listen and the leadership of the gop briefly for a you know one night when they still had this sort of of fear in you know against the president and then poof some lay. Everybody was back in line now. What that the reason for that is because the base belief and the base believed it because this had been told to them not just by the president but by the media that they watch and nobody stood up and said stop. This is enough. this is not true. I won't say nobody let me correct. There were some very brave people who did their jobs. Why the secretary of state and georgia who plus then they shall sleep attack for and all those congressman started looking around and they said you know what i'll lose my job. I'll i'll get voted out of office another way of saying. I didn't expect that there would be so few people who would say. Well i don't mind losing my office because this is too important. America's tools and things are more important than democracies to import. See and they're not gonna do it. He's he's he's just as block. Oh baba listen.

Are you kidding me man. So here you go again you know. And and and the problem with racism is the only way we get to solve. Racism is that we admit that there is racism but if you have the leadership the former vice president all these senators going. There is no systemic racism. Did they have nothing to address. Thus the problem continues you tell my peers. Y'all got the frame at at the cap. During the insurrection of that is that's very is so free of donald trump and the base like like by president obama and that's causing this whole thing and they're just cowards.

"That we had said, or the Trump had said, was a terrorist organization that was backed by Iran. Now Biden is letting that group not be called a terrorist organization. It's really about Obama. This. Oh, I agree. I agree. This was just basically we had a four year pause from the Obama nation. That we suffered under Barack Obama, and now they're back on track, and they're figuring they can pick up right where Barack Obama left off. With that continued march towards socialism slash communism slash Marxism that it seems we're on the path for Yes, And you know it's going to be really We're heading towards a very dangerous time because because when one lockdowns air over and once people are more Congregating Maurin, you know, concerts and movie theaters and in the streets and so on. That is there are terrorists. You know they have not given up on us. And they're just waiting to be able to start attacking again. And certainly would the help of the Obama slash Biden presidency? Yeah, well, you know, and that's the thing about Are our borders and why it's important to know who is coming into this country. Because it's not. It's not anti Hispanic anti Latino sentiment that it makes us worry about illegal immigration and our porous borders. It's about the other people. If you don't know who's coming in than anyone could be coming in. Whether they're from the Middle East, whether they're Muslim extremist whether they're people from Africa who are coming in across our southern borders, specifically, uh That's the thing I always said about the immigration situation and see if you follow me on this if you've got a leaky basement If you've got water in your basement, it doesn't. It doesn't make any sense to bail the water. If you've got a crack in your foundation you need to vet and find out where the water's coming in. Seal that up, and then you can deal with the water. Unwanted water in your basement. You know whether that's 11 million illegals already in the country. You don't you don't Throw those out until you find out where the water's coming in. You stop that and vet that water first to make sure you've got good, healthy water access and you deal with the other water. After you stop the leak. Yeah, which was what President Trump was trying to do with the wall and increased ice enforcement. Yes, And you know, there have been reports of specific radical Islamists who have crossed the southern border. I mean, that has been somewhat decreased because of Trump's wall and so on, But But, you know, with the flood of illegal aliens that are gonna be coming in Because the Biden opening the doors. Um you know, it's gonna be harder to determine who is what who has what intentions. Donna Doctor, Carole Lieberman, America's psychiatrist for the next few minutes here in the night cap on 700 wlw, Dr Lieberman, you mentioned that after 9 11 and since you have been Dealing with people's stress. Over the threat of terrorism. Is that still very much at the forefront of what you deal with our people still very concerned about the threat of terrorism. Well, you know, there has been this pause while we have been preoccupied with, uh, with Corona virus and with politics, But I do. A weekly podcast called the Terrorist Therapist show and I have thousands of people downloading it. So there is so interest. Um, but I think you know that haven't been attacks in America. Anyway, there's still attacks elsewhere. Um, there have been attacks in America, but largely it's because there haven't been His large groupings of people, You know when they when terrorists attack whether it's a lone wolf or whatever they like to have like to have a big kill and injury. They like to have a lot of collateral shock and all. Yeah. There we go. And so you know, there was one person here and one person there. You don't get much shocking off. No. But they are you know, every week I talk about the top of the top news in terrorism, and and so I am. That's how I know. I'm aware of how things are bubbling all over. Um well, when you when you first said terrorist therapist, I thought you were doing sessions with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and get Mo I didn't No. No, but that would be interesting. Yeah, I was gonna say Do a therapy session with Khalid Shaykh Mohammad, Carole Lieberman and Marcus that talking about him? Did you know that another one of Brighton brilliant ideas Was to give the terrorists at Guantanamo, including Khalid Vic Corona, by yes. And the Pentagon just pulled back on that just because of the backlash, yes. No, I know. Thank God something some kind of some kind of saint. Her mind picked up on the The foul winds that were blowing publicly because of that decision. Well, Dr Lieberman is there. You've not given me a whole lot of hope tonight that we're going to get any better any time soon. Well, you know, this is the thing is, we can either wallow in our self pity and depression. Yes Or else besides that, we are going to do something more. To support whatever you know One's politics are and because I mean even Democrats, you know it's even Democrats are have Biden remorse because they did not expect this. They were just voting against Trump. So whatever party you support, you need to get more involved Much of thing. I understood what you just you, But your listeners need to get more involved in the political party that they support to try to make things happen in a better way for America. You know, it's it just seems so. Polarized and it seems more divisive than ever before. And I see so many problems with both of the two major political parties in this country that both seemed to be on track for this socialist Communist move. I I don't have. I don't hold out a lot of hope. But I keep on giving a voice to people in any time I can to say you know, this is this is America. This is a constitutional republic and we need to get back to those truths and those values and, yes, Absolutely. Well, I'm glad you feel that way. God, how? How have you lived in Beverly Hills all these years? I haven't lived in Beverly home. No. Here. I'm from New York. I lived half my life in New York and, uh, And you know a either way. Either state at this particular time, right? Doesn't have governors who are between between Cuomo between Between Cuomo and Newsome. My God, That's a psychology. That's a psychiatry session. Right there. There we go. That's amazing, Doctor Carole Lieberman. Thank you so much for your time tonight, as always. You're very welcome. My pleasure, All right?
