Fresh update on "barack obama" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"So I'll kind of close with this and then we'll get to the next question because we're running low on time. When does life begin? At first breath. At first breath. That moral standard of first breath would therefore believe that you could have abortion up until the life until the moment of birth. Life begins at conception. I'm going to say this as nicely as I possibly can. You're a drummer at a church. You should probably reconsider that because you are advocating for the most horrific and brutal eugenic non Christian abortion policies that I could possibly imagine. I hope you prayerfully reconsider and repent. Thank you for being here tonight. Thank you for being here tonight. Thank you. Hi, I'm a big fan of yours. Thank you. And I'm really nervous. So if I have I love the bills, by the way, they are my favorite team because they never win 5 super bowls in a row. They lost four or 5. Four. It's so tragic. I love how they never win. And I'm cheering for them. I love Josh Allen. He's amazing. He loves playing the sport. They're my favorite team. I have nothing to do with. So I assume that you know about the trans woman in the girls locker room in Vermont. And so I of course disagree with that completely. And I don't believe we should accommodate for trans people, but for the safety of actual women and to avoid another situation like what happened in Virginia twice, this year and last year, with a boy who decided that he wanted to put on a skirt and go into the girls restroom and decided to rip an actual girl, do you believe that we should make a trans locker room for people with this issue? No. We should not accommodate our society based on somebody's mental delusion or illness. I hope they get treatment. I hope they get compassionate treatment, which is not gender affirming care. Psychologists should not affirm your delusion they should challenge you with love back into alignment of how God made you. And so what is the solution if you're a man who thinks you're a woman, go in the men's locker room. Go wear a dress in the men's locker room. Why do we need to accommodate you and put you in a locker room or you're choosing answer because we completely inverted our morality to give a platform to people that claim they're oppressed and in reality they aren't. And we should not reconfigure society based on groups that say that, oh, feel so sorry because I'm a victim you actually, that's not the way that we should do things instead you get a lot of other people having to re accommodate their language, their speech and their privacy and the protection of our women for some sort of fringe mental illness that unfortunately is plaguing our country. Thank you. Hi, Charlie. Hi, Charlie. So you mentioned earlier that you wanted to meet an anti war left. This is a genuine one. Well, you've got one standing right in front of you. Grace, Scott, man. Thanks for being here. So pretty much every U.S. president for the past 20 years has disappointed the living hell out of them when it comes to foreign policy. George Bush with the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Barack Obama with that barbaric drone program. And frankly, Donald Trump's was not too much better. And now Joe Biden and I don't like the foreigner $60 billion of weapons he sold the Saudi Arabia. That's fair, but come on. I mean, Trump at least let's go through Trump. I mean, come on. Listen, he didn't start World War three like CNN knows. I acknowledge that. Okay, well, I'm doing somewhere. All right. I'm just saying, I'm not going to pretend that he's this, you know, that he's the all time pacifist because I don't see well, I don't think he was an all time pacifist, but could he at least agree he was the greatest challenge to the American foreign policy neoconservative regime. In a generation. I don't see it as that different from Barack Obama as the drone strikes the intervention. Okay, let's go through it. Then, okay, so Trump was given a choice whether or not to escalate in Afghanistan or to draw down. He was drawn down correctly. And he went against every one of his generals. They intervened. And the numbers actually fluctuated throughout his presidency. They didn't go. But there was a withdrawal plan, admittedly he didn't go through with it and because he didn't get reelected and don't get me wrong. I'm not exactly part of it. I'm not a big fan of Joe Biden's withdrawal plan. In my opinion, you know, that was a catastrophe. It was an insult to everyone. The troops should have been the last ones to leave. They should have kept a barrier between the Taliban and Kabul that was pretty awesome. It's also like you got to remove a kidney. You don't take a pocket knife and just start, you know, that was basically our withdrawal from Afghanistan. But hold on, let's go through the Trump thing. I think I might be able to win you over on this. He's the only president to be able to administer peace between Israel and Arab partners. That's a good thing. That's a good thing. Right. He was also he rejected calls and clamor to escalate with Iran that very well could have been even worse than the Ukrainian S Ukrainian escalation. He met with Putin to try to deescalate tensions with Russia. You got to give some acknowledgment here. The wrong thing actually with Soleimani, I don't think that was a deescalation. I don't think the president of the United States can basically general that Congress that we have not declared war on. That's actually probably a fair point, but I would disagree in this. I agree on the congressional part. I disagree on the I think he has universal law powers out there. I think that I think that dropping bombs on generals that are actually fighting ISIS in Syria. I think that's a bad idea. Yeah, there's a little more complicated money to kill a bunch of Americans. It's a lot more complicated than that. All right, but here's the thing though, was it worse potentially risking a war that would kill more? It didn't. So but what if it did though? So it's a hypothetical that resulted in actually deescalate tension. But here's what I think I will agree with you on. Is that the Ukrainian thing? Let's focus on that, right? What's going on with Ukraine is insane? We should all agree with that. It is wrong to send $75 billion to a proxy war that we might end up having to fight a nuclear armed power. You agree with that, right? Yeah, absolutely. And this country our schools are trash or infrastructure is trash, a $3 trillion in debt..

John Mellencamp Sits for National Anthem Before Colts-Eagles Game

"John mellencamp. He's still a thing apparently. He's 71 years old. And Mellon camp's music has been used by a lot of politicians over the years. He's one of these, what he's from Indiana, one of the heartland guys, sings about blue collar workers, but the guys are raging leftist, as a matter of fact, he once said that the problem with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is they were not liberal enough. So anyway, mellencamp portrays himself as like, you know, I'm down with the people kind of a guy. Well, over the weekend, he was at the Indianapolis game. Was it Indianapolis and Philadelphia? Big football game, and he was spotted inside a luxury suite because we all know that regular Joe's just hang out in the luxury suites. And he was stuffing his face with popcorn and his butt was in the seat. During The Star-Spangled Banner. So we got a picture of it up on the website, someone snapped a photo. Sport says mellencamp is one of America's greatest frauds. And the reality is this guy is a radical, radical leftist. But really, I mean, this guy can't muster the courage to stand up for 90 seconds. And show a little bit of respect to the men and women who fight for our freedom, he can't do that. I mean, come on. No, I don't know. I don't know if it was orville redenbacher. I don't know what kind of popcorn it was, Kyle, I'm sorry. But probably some of that, I don't know. Organic unsalted popcorn. The stuff without the butter.

Fresh update on "barack obama" discussed on Balance of Power

"David Westin this week, senator Raphael Warnock is hoping for a bit of a boost from Barack Obama's visit in the closing days of the Georgia runoff election, his opponent Republican Herschel Walker is hoping that governor Brian Kemp support will turn out voters this time around and for more on the state of the race, we speak with Emory university political science professor Allen abramo. There is actually one poet. This was full sponsored by the AARP and conducted by joint effort by democratic and Republican pollsters. So it looks it looks pretty legit and it shows a very tight race as you'd expect. But it does show Raphael Warnock with a small lead 51 47 among likely voters in the runoff. Does the Ricky Bobby thing working? He's using that in all the stop speeches now. A couple people had looked that up to see what it was about Ricky Bobby. He was referring to. You know, it's hard to say. I mean, the other day he was talking about vampires and werewolves. No doubt that Herschel Walker has a unique campaign style. Well, so but is that being well received by somebody? Is this cool or cute? I mean, to your point, he spent about 5 minutes describing this vampire movie. He was watching at 1 o'clock in the morning. Is that who people want to elect to the Senate? I think the risk for walker is that it's playing to Warnock's message that walker is not really prepared or qualified to serve in the Senate. He's not talking about issues. He's not talking about what he would do in the Senate. He's not talking about his differences with Raphael Warnock. He's talking about movies that he watched late at night. So that would actually appeal to someone. And I'm being honest about this. Does that help people relate with him? Does it make him a different kind of candidate? Well, I suppose I mean if you're looking for someone who's definitely not a politician, you know, who's an outsider in Mike. Appeal to you, but I don't know that that's going to appeal to a majority of voters here. Much has been made about the fact that he has been endorsed by Donald Trump. Much was made about the fact he was not endorsed by Brian Kemp the governor. Kemp is apparently out there, but I wonder what you're actually seeing here professor, can he help make the difference without coattails on the ballot? That's the big question. So having Kemp's active support, having him out there campaigning with him. Certainly helps. It's absolutely necessary, but the fact is that in the first round of voting, you add camp pulling walker across the finish line, Kemp was winning his race by a pretty comfortable margin 7 or 8 points. And walker, just barely actually made it into the runoff while Warnock ended up just pulling just short of 50%. The question is without camp at the top of the ticket, can walk or do it on his own. I think that's an open question. Amazing. Benter Barack Obama, I guess reenter Barack Obama. He already went there during the general he's going back. If I save general, I mean, of course, the midterms, the actual election. Now he's going back for the runoff. That actually seemed to help Raphael Warnock a couple of weeks back. Will it help again? I think it's key for Raphael Warnock for him to get the African American vote out. And I think that's where Barack Obama can help African American and democratic base voters generally. I think that Obama is probably the most popular political leader. Among Democrats in general, certainly among African American Democrats. So this should help him just in terms of getting that turnout, which is going to be crucial in this runoff. We've seen some senators like Lindsey Graham, Tom cotton, even Rick Scott, traveled to Georgia. Are those kinds of surrogates in the Republican Party while we're talking about a perceived outsider? Are they helpful or do they bring Herschel Walker into the establishment a little bit more? Yeah, I mean, I'm not sure how helpful they are. You know, I think that there was somewhat helpful in delivering a message in the first round that the key here was Republican so that to give Republicans control of the Senate. Now that that's no longer in play, I'm not sure that these other kind of establishment Republican figures are going to really do that much good. In 2021, Democrats could say, without this seat, this is the deal breaker here. We will not be in the majority in the Senate without that risk this time. Does turnout suffer? That's true on both sides. So I think that was a big motivation. Certainly in the two years ago in the runoffs. The question is, who's going to be more motivated? Is it more important for Democrats to get that 51st vote or for Republicans to stop the Democrats from getting that 51st vote? Thanks to Allan abramo it's political science professor

Pastor Paul Chappell: What's the Faith-Base of Those 12 Republicans?

"Have a list. This is a freshly updated list of Republican senators who are supporting this, and all of these folks, by the way, were just like Barack Obama and one of them in particular was staunchly opposed to same sex marriage. That would be Mitt Romney of Utah, who now supports the bill, also Tom tillis of North Carolina, rob Portman of Ohio and Susan Collins of Maine, a Lisa Murkowski is hinting that she will support this along with senators, let's see here. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa, telling Business Insider that she was keeping an open mind about the bill. So you could have more Republican senators joining the Democrats pastor. Yes, that's a concern. And I always, as a pastor, I always ask myself, what's the faith base of the individual making that vote, what's going on at their home church? Because it usually influences them. And then the second thing is who are their donors. And there's a lot of money that comes from this crowd. What they're all saying is that this was passed at the Supreme Court level. We're just agreeing with the Supreme Court. But that's not exactly as I understand it true. This is an opportunity for them to be what our founders intended. It checks and balances in how far this law is codified and how much of a nuisance it becomes to the faith community. And so at the very least, they need to consider language in the in this that excludes religious organizations and I've yet to hear about that. Well,

Pastor Paul Chappell: How Gay Marriage Codification Impacts Christians

"Barack Obama so infamously said, hey look, gay marriage is not going to have anything, it's not going to impact your life at all. You live your life, you do you, Christians, this is not going to affect you at all. And of course, now we know that was that was a lie that it is impacting, especially Christian business owners and especially those in the wedding industry and I have no doubt that this is, once it's codified, you're going to see a whole other slew of lawsuits being directed at Christian business owners, and possibly churches. And I believe discrimination towards employees of large corporations who attend Bible believing churches. That's coming as well. Just yesterday in Seattle, we heard of Christians who had just Christmas decor in their home offices and there are laws being now considered in the city of Seattle to force people to remove any Christian symbolism from their home if they're going to do a Zoom meeting. And there's a hatred for the things of God, including his original design for marriage. And so and it's interesting because this is happening so quickly. Barack Obama, the first time he ran. He ran on a policy that mirrors was between a man and a woman. Then he changed his mind. And most all of these politicians that are 60 and younger 16 and older rather have changed their mind on this. But God hasn't changed his. And as believers, we have a standard that we are called to. And as it clashes with this culture, we need to do our best to let the senators know and tonight at our church, we're going to have them contacting the senators here in California, which normally falls on deaf ears, but we'll do all we can in this state to raise our concerns. Well, and

AJ on Kamala Harris As Biden's Ticket to the Black Vote

"Are people who are going to discuss this for years on end. How did this old coot with 50 years in the game and really nothing fit nothing fantastic on his resume? How did he become the nominee? Basically, because he was the guy who decided, okay, how? I'll be acceptable to black people. You know, I'll try to piggyback off the fact that I was vice president to our first black president Barack Obama. I can build on that. That's really what it comes down to. So what does he do? He decides to take my voice president will be a woman of color. Even though he chooses Kamala Harris, who polled at 2% among Democrats before she dropped out of the primaries. You guys know the story. I just feel like I've got to just tie it up in a bow because it's disgusting. Kamala Harris adds nothing to this ticket. All she did is fit the requirement that Joe wanted a vice president to be a woman of color. That's it. There was nothing about her in which she checked boxes beyond that one box.

Cut number 13. Hold up. Hey, young man, young man. Just listen for a second.

Come on, man. Come on, man. Come on, man. My brother, my sisters. Obama's got that fake black preacher voice. He's not a black preacher. His mother is a white woman for crying out loud. But every time Obama goes in front of a predominantly black audience, he plays to the crowd. It really is pandering at its worst. But Obama is out there, and he's being heckled, and the reason why Obama is even out there is because the Democrats don't they don't want Joe Biden anywhere around their candidates right now. They don't want him. They don't want the VP. They don't want any of these people out there. So they're sending Obama out and even the great orator himself can not even rally The Crown.

"A piece of tape here of Barack Obama going after you, at least he admits you were a good running back though. Play cut 58. One of the best running backs of all time. Does that make him the best person to represent you in the USA? Does that make him equip? To weigh in on the critical decisions. About our economy and our foreign policy and our future. Herschel, he's going right after your response. Well, my response is that I built my own confidence, and one of the lords of minority owned two thirds companies in the United States of America. And he called me a celebrity and all he got was just so let me know. So I'm not a celebrity because he never hung out with me. And when you talking about what makes him equipped, but it doesn't see that he was equipped to do too much, though. Not too much happened when he was in office. And right now, not too much is happening with center one item office because there's a reason we have this terrible inflation. We have an open border, a lot of crime has skyrocketed. So they're not doing the right thing. And what makes me quilt because I know how to vote. And I think people saw that during the debate, I knew what I was talking about.

I mean, they are Elizabeth Warren was out there already. They are not liberal. They are not liberal leftists. They are hard left. Is that is there a party capable of stopping that tumble off of the wilsonian edge? Well, they're not capable of that. The defeat they're going to receive next week, just a small foretaste of what's to come in 2024 and beyond. And you see some of the Schroeder minds in the Democratic Party recognizing this, trying to get out in front of it to avoid blame. Like Barack Obama in the same interview where he claimed to regret that he didn't, that he wished it had supported the green movement in 2009 Iran when in reality he failed to support it on purpose because he didn't want to deny to us. He also said that, you know, we can sometimes be buzzkills and skulls that we get upset if people don't use exactly the right language. Now, again, Barack Obama is a deep and committed ideologue, but he's also a shrewd politician. What you see with a lot of the people you named is that their deep ideologues, they're simply not true politicians. They don't have the good sense to mask those sentiments during the election season.

Is it just simply a reflex muscle memory or do they sometimes president Obama and people like that come along and you believe they're ideologues. But let's just take your average senator, you're sitting next to in the United States. Do they have any idea who Hegel is it? And they think that's a bagel factory. No, I don't think so. I mean, I think there are a few self conscious audio logs like Barack Obama who do. I mean, they're like Wilson, very much understood the project. He was undertaking. It was as much a project at home as it was abroad. Woodrow Wilson had this idea that we had overcome the need for separation of powers, checks and balances, federalism, all these protections built on the nature of man as described in the federal types that you have to have a degree of circumspection and care before granting power to anyone and that you can not grant them unchecked power. Wilson thought that was so much an offense. That's why he wanted to run roughshod over the constitution, create this alphabet soup of agency agencies we have today. It was his idea that you're going to have some elite disinterested scientific core of experts to tinker and administer an engineer society as opposed to accountable elected officials.

The Ideology of Wilson and Obama

The Ideology of Wilson and Obama

"The ideological roots of the book is about, well, there's a lot of Hegel in history. There's a lot of Lincoln in the founders. There's a lot of Woodrow Wilson and finally someone is explained it. Now, Jonah Goldberg has tried a few times. Fine writer, under the shell, no he's a friend of yours. He's tried a few times in big books that only people like me read to explain where this came from. You went back and tried to do it again. Would you explain to people why you think it's important that they get what Wilson was and why it matters and why the framers Lincoln and Reagan are different from that. I think it's important to understand the ideological roots of the decline in American sea all around them. As I said, Barack Obama is the most ideological president since Wilson. Now Barack Obama's are careful though to mask his ideology. Sometimes he let the mask slip like for instance when he was attending Jeremiah Wright's church for all those years. Jeremiah, I remember the infamous pastor who said 9 11 was America's chickens coming home to roost is that God wouldn't bless America but rather damn America. This is not some passing relationship. I mean, Barack Obama saw down his church satin skews for years, even had him officiate his wedding, Michelle Obama. Or when Barack Obama said that America wasn't an exceptional nation. What he wanted to say, we're going to fundamentally transform America view. Now, I don't know about you, but I don't know many people who think that if you love something, you should want to fundamentally transform it. I can't imagine the fetching this Hewitt would take too well if you said honey, I love you, but I want to fundamentally transform you. With Obama, though, it's somewhat rare that that ideological slips. With Wilson, you see it out in the open. The first openly, the first president who was openly hostile and opposed to our Declaration of Independence and our constitution. He said they were outdated. They were obsolete. They belonged to a Newtonian age of checks and balances, not a Darwinian age of evolution. He said that the moral basis of our nation, the natural, equality of mankind, that none of us as Jefferson said are born with saddles on our backs to be written or spurs on our heels to ride. Was outdated as well. He had this conception of history with a capital H that it was evolving and therefore mankind could be thankful that we could have heaven on earth that we could achieve. Utopia. The founders knew that this was all nonsense. They understood as Madison said in the federalist papers that government is the greatest of all reflections on human nature. And our nature, nature is that we're falling creatures.

Tom Cotton on the Afghanistan Collaps

"Painful to talk about, but we have to talk about the collapse in Afghanistan a year ago because no one in the mainstream media is legacy media is abandoned the issue. We've condemned a country to darkness. We didn't have to do so. Mike Pompeo has told me you've confirmed we were planning to leave 2500 troops there. It didn't have to happen. With that incompetence, was that design? Was that Joe Biden just living off the fumes of the Obama presidency? Well, I think that the way Afghanistan collapsed last summer was the combination of Joe Biden's rank and competence and his deep insecurity. As I explained in only the strong drawing upon some memoirs at the time, by people like Secretary of Defense bob dates, Joe Biden, in 2009, subjected Barack Obama to what bob dates called Chinese water torture over Afghanistan. And he poisoned the well between Obama and our military leaders. Constantly accusing them of being misleading, of leaking to the press of undermining president Obama in a way that Joe bob dates had he never saw under George W. Bush. May have disagreed. I've seen disagreements between senior military leaders and president Bush. But no mistrust. That's pretty common for Democrats and the military though. But for 13 years, Joe Biden believed that he would write about Afghanistan and everyone, including Barack Obama was wrong. And he had to chip on his shoulder. And he wanted to show everyone in 2021 that he had been right all along. And that's why he disregarded the best military advice of our commander in Afghanistan, our commander in the Middle East, our chairman of the joint chiefs, his own Secretary of Defense, frankly, most of his own civilian advisers in The White House and the State Department. He wanted to show that he was right and had been all along, and he wouldn't listen to the obvious facts about what led to the collapse in Afghanistan. So precipitously, I mean, just 5 weeks before Kabul fail, he was saying there'd be no Saigon like collapse. And this is now as I explained really strong the Afghan effect is going to be as bad as the Vietnam effect was, or at least as long as Joe Biden is president. Let's

"Now, in a unique way, as a graduate of president Obama is a Harvard Law graduate as you are, you're carrying a rifle and a war zone, president Obama is off on the apology tour. How did that feel? Because you know that that's an ideologue. That's not a commander in chief. That's an ideologue spouting Ben Rhodes written nonsense. The metternich and the MSNBC is out there feeding him lines, which just doesn't match up with your reality walking point. Yeah, well, as I say in all these strong Barack Obama was the most ideological president since Woodrow Wilson, he's an example of what Jean kirkpatrick famously said about the Democrats that blame America first Democrat. And we took that tour in the spring of 2000 winter in spring of 2009. He continued to apologize for he viewed as America sands. Remember, it was on the apology tour when he denigrated American exceptionalism, which most Americans hold dear, saying it was no different from Greeks thinking Greece's exceptional or the British thinking Great Britain is exceptional, which is rarely Obama's way of saying that it's just kind of an outdated and obsolete chauvinism for one zone that we should really all transcend our petty patriotism. And become what Obama declared himself in the 2008 campaign, a citizen of the world. So it makes a certain sense that he would go on that kind of apology tour. Because he is deeply hostile to American power and America's unique leadership role in the world. In fact, he said, his client not only was strong, that no world order should elevate one nation above the other. Most

Sen. Ted Cruz: Previewing New Book 'Justice Corrupted'

"Agree, the topic is immensely important. What we have seen, it started under Barack Obama where he began using the Department of Justice and the FBI and the IRS to target and attack and try to destroy his political enemies. He turned them into weapons and it under Donald Trump, they put hard partisans, they burrowed into the senior career positions at those agencies, and they waged war against president Trump, the deep state fought against him, tried to destroy his administration, tried to destroy him personally every single day of the presidency. And now under Joe Biden, it is fully metastasized. This is the most political Department of Justice we've ever seen. We've seen FBI agents storming the home of president Trump. Right. First time in the history of our country, a former president has had his home searched and raided by the FBI, but Merrick Garland's perfectly happy to send the FBI in to attack their political enemies. We've seen FBI agents storming the homes of pro life activists arriving machine guns drawn arresting them whether children are screaming because this Department of Justice is willing to be the stormtroopers for the DNC. If you're a political enemy of the Democrats, they believe they've got a whole Justice Department and a whole FBI and a whole IRS that is there to come after you and what the book justice corrupted does is it explains exactly how they've done that and explains the origins of where this is coming from. It takes you behind the curtain to understand what's really going on at DoJ and the FBI and how that poses a threat to you and your liberty.

"Is for all the times we didn't live up to our ideals for all the times that we've made mistakes on the international stage. Or. Hypocritical in terms of how we applied our faith and democracy. If we get democracy right, democracy is stronger around the globe. And when we don't get it right or we don't look like we care about it, others fill that gap. People, even our enemies, recognize that what happens here. If we can make a democracy function where you look at this room and you've got people from every corner of the globe, every racial group, every ethnicity, every religion, every culture that if we can figure out how to live together and treat each other with dignity and respect, then others start feeling like, well, maybe it's possible in our play in our country too. And when we look like we have abandoned those ideals or we're not willing to fight for them, robustly. Then around our around the world, people start saying, see? That was always a pipe dream and the putins of the world have a much easier time. There are a dozen other subjects to talk about, but well out of time.

"Dominating the space. Over the past couple of days, we've collected some questions for president Obama. And I want to throw two quick ones at you. And then a final question of Maria ressa inspired question for you from me. This is from Anne moss here at the University of Chicago. Was there a moment in your presidency you can identify when you or your advisers came to realize that social media itself posed a threat to American democracy? What was it? Was there a hinge moment when you just went, oh, what is happening here? Well, it's weird to remember that the smartphone came out in 2010. I mean, it's been 12 years. Since this ubiquitous thing came out, and so for us, what we saw was a I think you can draw a direct line during our campaign, Sarah Palin, birth, birtherism, death panels, there was what's been called truth decay, right? There was an erosion of what was considered acceptable to assert in the press period. That's all pre social media. So what I did see was I think a erosion of accountability norms and standards. In accelerated in political life, and then when social media hits, then I think that you saw it spread and accelerate. But I wouldn't actually, I wouldn't say that even by 2012 that social media was the main carrier. I think it was actually in my second term. That you start seeing not just bad information, but you also start seeing an acceleration of misinformation. And by 2016, that's when I think it, well, we know what happened. Nutella. One more question. This is from Connor Lee, who's a student here at the University of Chicago. And you've sort of touched on this, but it might be worth dilating on it for a second. What is your advice to young people who seek to play a part in protecting our elections and curbing the effects of disinformation on those elections? Well, I think young people are going to have to help us reinvent..

"That leave intact, the opportunity for these platforms to make money. But say, to them, that there's certain practices you engage in, that we are not, we don't think are good for our society and we're going to discourage. And so a specific example would be, there's been a lot of debate around section two 30. I don't know that entirely eliminating section two 30 protections from liability. Is necessary. I certainly think that providing section two 30 liability for paid advertising that is micro targeting certain groups and we have no transparency into that's not serving any particular. Benefit in terms of startups or innovation or so forth. And that can be really damaging. So I think that we have to have a set of debates around that. And there are smarter people than me who are working on this. The issue of anonymity and the distinction between bots and humans or bot farms and people who actually have opinions. Are there ways of sorting that out. In some circumstances, it's important to preserve anonymity in terms of so that there's space in repressive societies to discuss issues. But as we've all learned, it's a lot harder to be rude obnoxious cruel or lie when somebody knows you're a lion. And knows who you are. And I think that there may be modifications there that can be made. So look, the one thing that's interesting, if you look at, for example, Facebook's response or Twitter's response or YouTube's response post January 6th. They made a point of saying, well, we responded in by doing a whole series of things. Some of which then were reversed after the heat was often. Which tells me that they at least appear to have some insight into what's more likely to prompt insurrectionists, white supremacists. Misogynists, behavior on the Internet, bullying behavior on there. They seem to know what it is. And I'm less interested in them in fairness to them many of them will acknowledge, we don't want to be policing everything that said on the Internet. But what they haven't been forthcoming about is what their product designs are and there are ways in which a democracy can rightly expect them to.

"Processes, including how we share information and argue about information that encourages our better adults. And I think that's possible. This thing on this newspaper question and journalism question because this is not a natural disaster. I mean, yes, there have been unique pressures that tech companies have put on newspaper companies. But Alden capital, for instance, you guys did a great story about a venture capital firm that. Single handedly scooped up and destroyed a whole bunch of newspapers in this country. For for profit. It's a man-made disaster in some cases. What is your specific recommendation? About this, these news deserts that have been created across the country. And you could fold in the tech companies. Why don't I step back just for a second? And maybe just share a couple of assumptions that I have in the interest of this transparency. Number one, as I said, I don't think that our media companies are tech companies, social media created the divisions in our society. But I do think that what has happened in our media ecosystem is exacerbating and making democracy more difficult. Number two, I am close to a First Amendment absolutist. I believe in the idea of not just free speech, but also that you deal with bad speech with good speech that you engage that the exceptions to that are very narrow. And particularly among this cohort of folks in college, and I've talked to my daughters about this. I don't want us to be such a society of manners that we can't, we feel like our feelings are hurt and we can't hear something that somebody says and we wilt. I think. I want us all as citizens to be in the habit of being able to hear stuff that we disagree with. And be able to answer with our words. Number three, I think that.

"A shift in technology and who controls these platforms in ways that are not transparent and that has contributed to aggravated a sense in which we are no longer operating by the same rules or on the same facts. I want to come to that because Maria ressa talked very effectively about these questions about what the platform. But there's a story that you have told over the course of your career you wrote it. It was in the volume one of your autobiography. When is volume two coming, by the way? Let's move on. Okay. It's the story. It's a story. It's kind of an Iowa story, but it's also a downstate Illinois. Story. You talk about entering politics as a black politician, black democratic politician, Chicago, with a name like yours, getting a fair shake downstate. And I think it's a great story. And I think newspapers. I think it speaks to the evolution of press and information and how it reflects on politics. And axelrod will remember this. Because he was, let's face it he was highly skeptical about the idea of me running for the U.S. Senate two years after 9 11 with a name that rhymed with Osama. And I can't fault him for that. So I'm going down to downstate Illinois, and those of you who know Dan sale nor, it's conservative. It's rural. It is conservative. It 98% white some of these counties. And I drive around and I, for you young people, there were these things called maps that you had to unfold and it was really hard to fold them back. And so you swing into a town and. I typically stop, we'd arrange for me to stop by the local newspaper. And usually you'd have a stereotype, but more than once..

"Contest. What's been said, what's been promised, what's been delivered, and there will be some play in the joints in terms of how we interpret stuff. I actually, to this day, believe that what I said was accurate, which was when you say you can keep your doctor, if your doctor dropped dead tomorrow, that is not the fault of the Affordable Care Act. Technically speaking, you did not keep your doctor. You had to find a new one, right? So I was making a broader point, which is that systematically, we are not forcing you out of existing employer based healthcare, which is what people at an aggregate level are concerned about. But the reason I told that story is to illustrate that, yes, there are still going to be disputes around what's true and false, even in a well functioning democracy and a free press. That is okay. I was going to the point you were making, what's the difference between systematic disinformation, whether it's by the state or by product design on Internet platforms, that are different in kind. And are destructive in different ways. And. Just to go back to basics, if. You think about our constitutional design, and obviously each even each democracy has sort of a different coding for how their democracy is supposed to work. But in our design, the theory is, if First Amendment, you have freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, freedom of the press, and everybody has a say, and in that marketplace, then we're going to sort out what's true and what's false, or what's best for us, how we act collectively and so forth.

"We're not going to solve for that problem. Any time soon. The way I define disinformation is if you have a systematic effort to either promote false information, to suppress true information. For the purpose of political gain financial gain. Enhancing power, suppressing others, targeting those you don't like. And that, I think, is entirely different from information that is inconvenient. If you're asking Jeff, I'll use an example. Because I think it also shows that sometimes we get too cute about this and we're not operating on a common sense. I was born in Honolulu Hawaii. There's a clipping there. In the newspaper, dated 1961. I walked by the hospital every day for the first several years of my life. And so that's an example that wasn't an example of people being misinformed. There was a agenda behind that promotion of what was clearly a false fact. I was identified as having engaged in a political falsehood when I said we just celebrated the Affordable Care Act. Passage at The White House. I wasn't looking to milk any applause, but. During the run up to passage in a speech before the AMA, I think. I said that and repeated several times that if you want to keep your doctor, you can. And the point we were trying to make is 85% of people had healthcare, one of the big problems in trying to get healthcare for the uninsured is making sure that folks who already had it didn't feel like scare tech were vulnerable to scare tactics that they were all going to be rationed and socialized medicine and they'd lose their planned doctor. And we said, look, we're keeping the system for folks who have employer based healthcare intact. Once we passed it, and we were starting to implement, one of the things that we had done is to raise standards for what insurance could or could not provide because there was a bunch of phony insurance on the marketplace..

"Nowhere is the assault on democracy more evident at this moment than in Ukraine, where Vladimir Putin is attempting to demolish Ukraine's democracy and Ukraine itself. Throughout this aggression, we've witnessed the wholesale suppression of information, as well as the use of disinformation as an effective tactic of war. In this live conversation, taped at the University of Chicago, I talked with president Obama about how he defined disinformation and want to make of its weaponization around the globe. We started our conversation by talking about the war in Ukraine, and the role this information plays in deceiving the Russian people. Before we go directly into the subject of disinformation, there's a lot to cover. I wanted to ask you to talk a little bit about Ukraine. Where we are right now. And something that I think everybody here would appreciate is the chance to hear you talk about this through the prism of your knowledge of Vladimir Putin. You spent a lot of time with him. A lot of time grappling with him. I spent a couple of minutes if you can explaining where we are and where you think this is headed. Well, it is a tragedy of historic proportions. That's not news to people here. You can see it. I think that it is calling the question about a set of trends around the world that we've seen building for some time, Putin represented a very particular reaction to the ideals of democracy, but also globalization. The collision of cultures, the ability to harness anger and resentment around ethno nationalist mythology and what we're seeing is the consequences of that kind of toxic mix in the hands of an autocratic government. That doesn't have a lot of checks and balances. I think it is also fair to say that it is a bracing reminder for democracies that have gotten.

"Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage at Andrew and Todd dot com. Barack Obama, Barack Obama is an interesting person to study and I got my political start while Obama had his political rise. Obama, of course, would call Chicago his hometown, Hawaii would be kind of more like his hometown. I always found the whole debate about Obama's birth certificate to be a little bit silly. His father, though. That's always been kind of a question. Of who he was and where he came from. Obama is Chicago. It's in his blood. He's believes in a political viewpoint in worldview that if you don't get what you want, you throw the window through the brick, you throw the brick through the window, and you blame the other side. Obama built an entire political machine with David plouffe and axelrod, and Valerie Jarrett. It took the entire American political landscape by storm, especially when Hillary Clinton was supposed to be the nominee and president in 2008. So things are not going well for Democrats right now. A Democrats are looking as if they are going to get clobbered in the upcoming midterms. The Senate is probably going to be in Republican hands unless Republicans screwed up. And so who do they bring in to try to spark up the troops to try to pop them up, try to get them focused, Barack Obama? Former president Barack Obama speaks the House Democrats on Thursday. The private meeting is organized by Hakeem Jeffries, the caucus chair, and is expected to take place virtually. You know, Obama will not be bothered by leaving Oahu. While he is, communicating to House Democrats, Obama who has kept his public appearances to a minimum since leaving office will participate in a keynote discussion with speaker Nancy Pelosi. Now I'm reading this article that happened a couple days ago, but last night, some of the information from his speech got leaked. And Obama basically leaned in and told Democrats here's the problem. The problem is not that you're messing up the country. The problems you're not communicating, what you're doing. Quote, from CBS News dot com. Former president Barack Hussein Obama exhorted House Democrats. To celebrate their accomplishments on the campaign trail, rather than dwell on the setbacks they faced as they try to defend their slim majority in the midterms this year. Obama, the featured keynote speaker during the caucus virtual messaging summit Thursday, told lawmakers to quote take the wins you can get and quote, doesn't help to whine about the stuff you can't change. He says you need to be aggressive about highlighting the progress. He says Democrats deliver. He reminded them of the fight to pass nationwide healthcare the Affordable Care Act when he was president. Now, Obama shouldn't exactly be a subject matter expert on how to hold chambers of power in midterms. It was one of the most, let's.

And you picked up the ball and just drained three just so casually and then it made the rounds on all the outlets. Was that your greatest moment. Well at the risk of not of sounding artificially humble. I mean the truth is that i had hit some shots like that before. Okay okay so the first time. I campaigned. I took my first foreign trip. And we went to afghanistan and iraq and before going into iraq we staged at kuwait. And i walked into a gym with like three thousand troops in shirtsleeves and one of the soldiers tossed me a basketball and said. Let's see your jumper and cnn was recording. It and there was nothing but net brother. Maybe oh baby. So you've been down this road before okay. This was not a unique moment. I hit the big shots. That's what i do. Like jordan and north carolina jordan in north carolina. Yeah we got an a big. We got in a fight. I was critical of you. Like you can't look that cool. While you're trying to help your buddy biden. And then biden was he had to go. Like great shot. And i was better rennes buddies. Now he was basically on a date. He was on a date in front of his dream girl. And you did that.

We all know that raising a great kid and being a great dad is hard and the path is never all that clear like drive through fall but one thing is for sure it gets a lot easier when you have fellow dads to talk to so we brought together a diverse group of men to elevate the voices of fathers tell our truths laugh and hopefully share some wisdom. You're gonna hear from six dad's four of them from across the country one comedian. That's me and one dad that happens to have been the forty. Fourth president of the united states. Who at the end of the day is just a father like the rest of us with that. It is my honor to introduce the author of a promised. Land forty fourth president of the united states and father to sasha and malia barack obama people. Thank you for joining us as you can see Brother president. I put on a nice sweater jacket pocket square so that my momma won't be disappointed. I just wanted to make sure that. I'm pressed my mother today. Run i think you look sharp Your momma would be proud. I notice all the other bands though with me going low casual not trying to sit on put on a front the way you are with and all that so but that's fine you're the host your professional media guy you've got you've got to keep up fair enough well speaking of the dass. Let's go in and meet the dads. He'll be joining us in conversation today. I we got felix leiter and illustrator and video producer north carolina with two daughters six and eight. You also have chris russo. Peter smith a lawyer and a physician assistant and a couple from new york with the six year old daughter and twin. Three-year-olds rob king rob as a writer and actor from los angeles with the two year old boy and carlos mahia who's girls three and six. He promises mr president he promises. They're playing quietly in another room right now Thank you for being here. Say hello to the president. Mr president president was good to see all of it. Although i had to say i am exhausted. Just hear your biographies. It's been bringing back flashbacks of sleepless nights stepping on toys. But that's why we have you here to get ourselves a little bit of advice from one of the most prominent data me history of the country. mr president. First thing i would like to do though is began with a quote from your book in a promised land. You said quote every parent's sabres such moments when the world slows down. And all that matters is that you are present fully to witness the miracle of your child growing up. Could you expand on that just a little. I was describing what it was like. Just coaching sasha's basque rec league basketball team when she was seven or eight even in the midst of the presidency. And and just the sheer joy that that would bring and wishing that I've maybe planned. So that i had more of that and maybe a little less of meetings in the situation room. Although it's an extreme example. I think all of us as parents and as fathers are struggling with and trying to figure out the fact that the single most important thing in our lives. Are these little people who Are dependent on us and Were teaching and bringing us joy. And they're teaching us about ourselves but we also got work to make eleven Gotta hit deadlines sometimes have to travel and so often that. Hold the way we organize schedule. Our lives Prevents us from being there as much. As we'd like the way you're able to multitask during during that eight years. You know you're the president yet to be a husband. You have to work on your jump shots you have to steal somehow. Find time for your kids as well like we. You're juggling so many things how you always able to make sure that you were there and always fully present not just physically but mentally when i was campaigning for the presidency Or when i was in the. Us senate night a commute back and forth between washington and chicago. The issue for me was just being physically present. How did i managed. I managed that. Because i have extrordinary partner who was just a great mom and was Carrying the burden the lion's share of the day to day megan sure the bay where the pediatrician's appointment and making sure that you know the ballet tights fit right for the dance recital and all that and i'd show up at the dance recital but i didn't. I wasn't komen their hair. There was one time where. I tried to call me hair. And michelle is away for a weekend and It's he or she was four or five at the time and when we got to the the dance studio one of one of michelle's spreads another parent came up and whispered the lynn. Do you want me to redo your hair and in malaysia. Who had said it was fine. She's all like yes please. This is a disaster. And i overheard her and i i was i realized man. I'm not well equipped here. So once i was in the presidency as i described The the great good fortune was suddenly. Everybody came to me. I had no commute is literally walking down the stairs and walking down the colony and i didn't have big up my dry cleaning right so suddenly me being home for dinner every night at six thirty a. Even if i had to go back to the office afterwards those kinds of things made a huge difference. I was fortunate. The the shifting of the perspective in terms of me being all in that wasn't as hard partly just because i it was such a a an amazing break to not be thinking about terrorism or a wildfire and. Just sit there at the dinner table. Listening the the talk about knucklehead boys and the teacher with the weird haircut. Yeah i it was like You know just a a vacation. Every time i spent time with. Let's go to chris and peter. Now tartlets wins a six year old. How much chaos does that generate in the house. Do you think it's gaydos chris. Total chaos chaos Juggling work in home Actually i a lot of times feel guilty. Because when i go to work it's a little bit of an escape and that's saying a lot when you work at a cancer hospital do things. We really have. Larger patient is so important and also snacks and snacks. Maps and snacks. Highly underrated time most the time when kids kids are acting up there either tired and can admit it or they're hungry. How you guys figuring out schedules though right because at bat age.

"Whoa. Let me just say that you say this. I think I touched a little bit early. But I would say this again once once and once you have individuals, that's that's in prison and they lights which go off and the life change and you know they're trying to be productive Individuals. Of course, When you get out, you just want to help other individuals that's in your position. It's like any time I walk into a prison already know that the individuals there are Basically inspired because I'm walking in there or any not just me any formally incarcerated individual. When you go back into those prisons and and have those conversations, it's it's a different It's a different appreciation. Can I ask you a question about that, too? Yeah. I mean, I want to. I do want to. Do you ever feel pressured by that that people really want expect a lot from you when you go back inside. Oh, so when I go back inside, Of course, this is just everybody's going to be right. There's like I'll be Barack Obama walking into the prison, you know? As my brother used to call me thinking, Barack Obama, you know, but you know, I think Out in society. More people pull it you for different things, you know. Ah, lot of organizations pull at you. And you know, of course you want to say yes to everything that can help the next person. But then, at times you feel yourself like, oh, honey, some personal some personal space. I need himself caring the small that you know, I need to go unpack somewhere is getting tough is getting robbed so One thing I always tell individual stats get down like a Don't let him pull you in all different directions, man. You ain't gonna be able to keep up because they had They would definitely run you ragged Lee out here actually think he's a regular times. That is for strangling. Done. Um, I I, uh I pulled one cliff, which I do want to play. Um, it's actually from the episode about lockdown. Um so you you kind of know over headed here. You don't have a record a few years ago, we broadcasted this year for obvious reasons. Um, but first before we listen to clip I think people need to know what a lockdown is, Um, in the present context. Lockdown is when there is no movement none. You're stuck in your cell. It could be up to 72 hours. You know, Until this time to shower, they would bring you everything to you to bring your graphics to you and Aggie lunch at that time. Bring you dinner. Um, and you don't like to say you only technically. I will say aloud, but you're committed to shower every 72 hours when you're in the lockdown situation, So you're you're 24 hours in yourself. But what? I just want to clarify it could go on for months. It could go on Just my luck. Years. Yes, on bits, just like it's a trip. You know the resilience of the human Spirit is just you just learned to adapt to the situation And that's all I could say. Because you've got people that spin in solitary confinement for like 40 something years? No, you said Yeah, that's actually I feel like this clip speaks so directly to even have how resilient people are. That's why will you be here? This clip? So if you could play that clip, uh, that would be great. We could listen to it. Myself, You know he had to sweat shirts. This is J. The guy with the soupy salad and he's been through a lot of lockdowns with various Celis but the city with the sweatshirt, he was memorable. So he would take one sweatshirt and we're like inspection, and he would.
