"Get a precision AC tune up for only $69. Michael and son. Traffic and weather on the 8s, let's go to Carlos and the traffic center. Thanks, Liz, good morning to you. If you're hitting on the eastbound side, that's the outbound side of New York avenue reports that all lanes are closed on New York avenue right and bladensburg road. The closure is between bladensburg road and Montana avenue. So do you follow police direction? They should be detouring folks. Thankfully, there are a few workarounds there so it shouldn't be too difficult to head past that. There's a little bit of a delay building, of course. That is to be expected. Now, if you're headed on the outer loop of the capitol beltway, headed just over towards three 55 and two 70 looks like the work crew is blocking the right hand side of the roadway, so do stay to the far left hand side. Eastbound 50 and it out towards the bay bridge earlier crash did clear, still got two way traffic on the eastbound span of the bay bridge if you're headed westbound on 50, the work crew blocks the left lane on your approach towards the beltway, no delays behind that one back in the district sounds like if you are headed along anacostia avenue there near orange street, there is a vehicle fire reported, and in northwest, Massachusetts avenue is dealing with an accident seen at the intersection of bataan street there, watch out for it down in Virginia, eastbound side of 66, still got the work crew on your approach towards the beltway a single lane is all that's getting by and the ramp towards the outer loop is still closed.

The Turner and hooch, well I guess that means that I'm a lovable French mastiff. Although French mastiffs are very regal and beautiful breed, I will say that. That was a good one from the 80s. I remember that. Did you ever see that one clay? Of course. If there's a popular movie from the 1980s, I have definitely seen it. Me too, man. I saw canine with Belushi, I saw Turner and hooch with Tom Hanks, cried like a baby at both of those movies, but something bad happens to a canine. I can't hold it in and I'm not ashamed to say it, but anyway, so I guess I prefer the tango in cash of radio, I think that's probably a better, a better move for us. But anyway, Riggs and Murdock, the lethal weapon. I mean, we have to use the names, obviously. But we appreciate all of you listening and we've got so much in our minds to be sharing with you in the months and years to come. So thank you all across the country for giving us a shot and letting us try to continue on the legacy continue on the fight, which is very necessary these days as you've seen because things are getting crazy out there. We often talk about sanity versus insanity reality versus delusion. I think those are some of the fundamental some of the fundamental challenges that we're trying to tackle day in and day out, which is just separate not only fact from fiction, but just bizarre from wait a second. I thought we all kind of understood some of the same things here. I thought we could operate from the same baseline foundational understanding of what we're trying to achieve in this country and perhaps even more to the point, what's up what's down? What's left what's right? What's, you know, what is two plus two equal and we are being forged increasingly by the Democrat left by the culture apparatus that they have. By the control of institutions, right? And remember, institutional control does not necessarily reflect sentiment within the institution. So all Disney employees, for example, do not share, and I'd be willing to bet probably less than half of them share. The idea that there must be a dramatic increase in LGBTQIA, by the way, I believe that's the full plus. That's the full acronym. Every letter is where this is programming. I don't want to leave one out clay. I believe one out would be, this is a high crime these days to leave one of the letters out. And there may be a new letter added tomorrow, and if it is clay, I will make sure that I add that letter. This is the longest acronym I've ever heard of, but put that aside for a second. People at Disney people at these companies, they don't necessarily reflect at the very top what the sentiments of the individuals are in this far left, especially on the far left trans agenda stuff. And I'm talking about this right now because sometimes clay and I have to, we share something and we're talking, you know, we're sharing stuff at night with the team, we're waking up in the morning. I mean, this show, people ask what our show prep is and our show prep is we're awake. We're thinking about and talking about the show, basically. And there's this navy pronoun education video. That is making the rounds right now on social media. And I said, wait, is this real? This is the United States Navy. You know, I mean, we've had naval aviators on the show, Top Gun is a naval aviator program, for example, we've talked about, you know, my grandfather rather served on the USS bataan in World War II in the Pacific. I mean, in our navy is amazing. The envy of the world, the most powerful naval force in the history of the planet.

"Do you have sixers Miami? 6 years in sex, at all times in every place with no doubt. One of my best buddies is a he fan. We've been talking about this for a long time. I think the sixers can beat them. I earnestly do with that said, I do love rooting for playoff Jimmy. And he has vindicated in many of his sixers opinions from years past. And so it's a win for the sixers, or it's a win for Ben solax opinions about the sixers and 2019. Well, what a night for you. It really was. The eagle sixers, it doesn't get much better than that as a Cabo. I was so grateful during that like ten, 11, 12, 13 pick, like all the trades were happening, eagles were moving up because that was like fourth quarter of the game. And if I had to be double screening, I think my head would burst. So it was very nice to just fully lock in on the trades, fully lock into the lines moving up and not have to worry about the sixers blowing a 20 point lead. So we're not at home. You only blow 26 point leads in your home. That's the thing. All right, you can read Ben solak on the ringer dot com. You can hear him on the ringer NFL show. Sometimes on the ringer gambling show as well. Good to see you as always. Thanks so much, Bill. All right, we're taping this part of the podcast. It's a little after 7 o'clock PT just had two basketball games. A third one is happening right now. The NFL Draft is happening. Now, my TVs are exploding. This is a great time. First game sucked the Philly game. We'll talk about that in a second. Second game was New Orleans. The feel good first round loser of this year. Pushing Phoenix as far as they could take them. Devin Booker even came back Phoenix barely wins in the final minute, some unbelievable Chris Paul, the pelicans go home. Rob Mahoney, what stood out to you about game 6? That's a hell of a party favor to take home if you're the pelicans. You know, I think every year there's a team that is young and kind of bad in the middle of the season and we're wondering, should they tank for a draft pick? Should they make a push for the playoffs? And I hope you remember this pelicans team when this happens next year with some other team because they're going to the next season with a lot of juice with a lot of confidence. They played a hell of a series. My friend Kevin wild's on Twitter compared it to the bubbles, the bubble suns. Two years ago. And you know, even though they didn't even make the playoffs that year, they laid some sort of a foundation that convinced them to trade for Chris Paul. And a year later they were in the finals. KSC, you see any similarities with that? Absolutely, because now they're going to be in a situation to where they're Chris Paul. You would hope is going to be Zion Williamson with him coming back if he's able to get in the big if here, but if Zion could get in the best shape of his life and return to the court to a team that has now defensive enforcers like herb Jones on that end of the floor, when is the last time we've seen a rookie play at his level on the defensive end with CJ McCollum granted it wasn't a great series for him. If you get CJ McCollum as the third option between bataan Ingram and Zion, that offense is gonna be far more significantly difficult to stop on what for defense. And so, I mean, for Zion, it all comes down to health. That goes without saying. But it seems like I'm not sure if you've heard anything about this bill, but I don't think New Orleans wanted to bring him back because they still want him to actually get back into the best shape of his life before risking further injury with a condition he's in now, but that's my impression from the people I've talked to. Well, he's not in shape. I mean, you can do it from him on the sidelines. If we're going to extend the bubble sun's comparisons, maybe he could go on a plant based diet like Chris Paul did because Chris Paul basically changed his career when he got in a crazy level of shape. Tonight was unbelievable. I mean, the stuff he's doing, I don't really even know how to have perspective on this older athlete stuff. You know, I think once Brady had the falcons come back, that was when everybody's brain just started to kind of break with this stuff. LeBron was going to win the scoring title this year for a little bit there. Brady's still winning playoff games. And it's just throwing me off, but the one thing we always kind of knew was that aging point guards, rob. Just weren't supposed to be getting better. There was a point in this game when him and 8 had made 16 of 16 shots to start the game. And at the end, he did everything. He had the alley oop, he's setting up Booker. It was just dagger after dagger. I got to say offensively, I think this is as good as he's been his whole career. I know that's a crazy thing to say. But that's how I feel. I was there for his whole career. I.

Famous old Hollywood film composer, along with miklos Rocha, Bernard Herrmann and Dimitri and Alfred Neumann, those guys. So very famous old Hollywood director. Yeah, but unfortunately for the actors and the makers of the film, it did not win any of them. Didn't win a single one. I feel like Bogart was robbed, but then again, if I remember correctly, this is the year that on the waterfront for awards. And so, yeah, for other movies. Yeah, you're going up against Marlon Brando and on the waterfront. Yeah. Tom Tully has a best supporting actor nominee and he has a grand total of about three minutes in the movie, but yeah. But he's good. He's getting those scenes. He is. So we're going to do the usual plot summary. We don't really have that much. It goes by pretty quickly. But before we do, Sean, tell us a little bit about the background and the history of the movie. Yeah, so the cane mutiny was produced by Stanley Kramer for Columbia Pictures. He secured the rights to the novel after the success of the play and of the novel for not very much less than $50,000. He was one of the most important message film creators of the 50s and 60s. Among his films that he produced were high noon, the death of the salesman and the wild ones, speaking of Marlon Brando. He also directed a number of movies and some really great classics, including several starring Spencer Tracy, some of my favorites, guess who's coming to dinner in here at the wind and the phenomenal judgment at Nuremberg. If you've never seen Jasmine in New York, that's the movie. There's some acting going on right there. People are chewing up the scenes. Edward Jamie trick was the director. He was selected to direct the film. He was a longtime Hollywood editor and director, who was most known before the war for B movies. But he'd done some war movies, including back to bataan with John Wayne. He spent several years in the 40s, late 40s and early 50s being blacklisted for his connections to the communist groups. He was one of the Hollywood ten who was and he was a member of the Communist Party, but he actually flipped and testified before who act because he felt like after the revelations of the actual spying. Going on your Hiss and things like that. And he felt like the communists had made Hollywood sort of a Patsy for them. So he named some names and was able to rehabilitate his career thanks to Kramer, who's his friend. The cane mutiny was his most prominent film. He had some other mid level heads though over the next 20 years. So he's one of those, he's not like a John Ford level director, but he's one of those classic directors. So they and the screenwriters Stanley Roberts and cut huge chunks out of the novel. Although not down to the level of the play, but they definitely cut the film down to the two hour length. The story. The Keith character, which is Robert Francis character, young actor, young character in the play in the book..

He's already kind of trending in that direction. in can he be a factor for the cardinals in the wildcard game. Those are things that jump out right away. And then the most important thing dan get. Don't get anybody hurt. you don't wanna see an injury and these kind of games you wanna stay fresh. You want to stay in a good place offensively. But don't don't get anybody hurt That's number one. And also get adam wainwright ready that that's a kind of a low-key good story line here. Dan the numbers show. Even the and i really only look at atoms numbers since twenty twenty. I feel like if you're trying to get it. We gotta dig up. The old starts in the playoff history and all that stuff. I get it but really. He's not he's a different pitcher since twenty twenty with what he's doing with how he's pitching with how he's attacking what's working and what's not working for him so i really only care about those numbers but they show that more rest for him isn't always a good thing he's not he's gotten worse numbers when he has more time off and i think they're being mindful of those. I wouldn't be shocked if we see him in a relief appearance before the regular season ends. I think he's gonna work closely with mike matic's to kind of figure out the best way to attack that what will be an eight day Eight days stretch without games if he doesn't go from pitching in the game where they clinched pitching in the wild card games figuring out how to he can stay in a routine because you you to have them rested for sure but you don't want to have them rusty when he gets out there in california. I think to Guys that i'll be watching very closely. One would be jack flaherty and then the other one is the starter tonight. Dakota hudson you know. What if he goes out and he deals. What's his role with this team. I think that is certainly something that is up for debate. Totally is your game two starter. Then actually it's your. I guess not game to game one of the division series starter or do you wanna risk. You know not taking him To to to gain more i mean. That's the cool thing about the roster you can basically you decide who you're going to have decide the guy you want to start in game one of the division series if you get there and you don't have to him on the wildcard roster but opens up the door for you know another reliever so what they're going to have it in the beauty of them clinching early. Which was remarkable because of the winning streak. They're gonna have adam wainwright ready to roll full rest and they're also going to have every reliever they could want fully rested so the the thing for scheldt will be. How do you balance. You know letting adam wainwright do what he does. Get stronger as the game goes along. He's not a guy you need. That necessarily have a quick hook with the games close. They played better. When he's on the mound. I don't some of it can be explained. Some of it can't their defense is is is better when he pitches of the way he pitched and also because he's adam wainwright and they want to get everything for him. I think there's an element to that but you're also going to have a fully rested bullpen. Rican just start trying to trap door. It handed off bataan style From one innings into the neck.

"Surrender. They were told to go to the tip of the the peninsula or mid point and start gathering and they were march up the peninsula to a train station from the tip of bataan to this train station. Sixty five grueling. Miles april is one of the absolute hardest months in the philippines. And that's saying a lot when it's hot all the time and then from the train stations about seventeen miles in these box cars which literally some of them if you were to look at the holocaust boxcars in france. They literally the same cars Answer so the men were packed into these boxcars. A hundred is a very tiny box cars. they were packed. A hundred time. Men you can imagine the filth dysentery that waste the vomit and men died standing up and then after they fell out of the bus cars had a march another three mile. So all this is about eighty five miles but the but the best known is the sixty five mile march but not everyone did sixty five but only felt like six thousand miles because it was so horrific. We all know about that one. The one i wanted to eat. I think people really understand how. How capricious and ill prepared. The japanese were and ill-prepared is one thing but you another thing is that abject inhumanity and cruelty and just the wilfulness of and delight of killing people along the march they would run over them with tanks or trucks and lead them embedded in the road. If someone tried to get something to drink the shot in athle- Or they painted him in the take other. pow's bury him alive. They took a work. Two field hospitals large field hospitals at the beginning of the route. They made all the prisoners. Get out no matter what condition they were. that's how most of the filipinos died. They were in no condition. The march let alone walk. Half a step survey died They were in a japanese officer was in a truss. Just put out his store and behead someone they did not feed them for a day and a half. There was hardly any water. Breaks they those thinking disgusting trick in the hottest crushable way. I think you're there if they do not understand. No one understands atrocity and not. Everyone is another thing that everyone was onto the network. People think you're a pow. You're the philippines the bataan death march. There's a few caveats that one cruise about two thousand guys more or less. Jump into the bay and use bob young. It's stupid when you have to understand the had sharks had mines had all sorts of splits shutler on fire and blown up stuff all over the place. Place swam floated to three miles to collect gregory. Wasn't this island. Which is where it was the headquarters for. Us forces the philippines and there were on pregnant. The marines and coast are pillow. Tillery in anyone get there. I'm good friends with a man who was army air corps unfortunately while you have to understand when the japanese bombed a pearl harbor at the same time bomb means the bomb hung-kang bomb howland island. Wake island napalm. They bombed shanghai and may bomblet a pardon me. So this wasn't it was. This was all out war for the japanese. And so i feel so the airfield by december tenth were knockout to all the air beds and all and also all the navy yard work out. They all were sent to baton. He come provisional infantry on so. This medal jumped in the water at the beginning of the march and swam to greg and fought with the marines. So he was in the air corps the army the army marine car. What so. I already got lost in what i was saying. That's quite alright. Awful situation as the more yes. That's very very true. And which brings us to the other death march that we mentioned that the outset This is one that you know. Honestly until i started corresponding with you. I was not aware of so inform our listeners. A little bit about this one okay. Well part of what. I knowing that there were american and filipino troops on the island. Correct preg- dr and the other little islands near corregidor is understanding. That troops were only on bataan but they were throughout the philippines Throughout other islands and other parts of the philippines and one group was on an island which we know about today as mindanao which is a stronghold for muslim filipinos and lumber plantations. There we had a airfield. We are building an airfield There are a number of things going on and we had A very sophisticated very stabby. A general guy. For in charge of the american filipino troops on mindanao he was told and mindanao. I was like the last to surrender. One of the reasons With correct are they felt that when wainwright with surrendered his troops. They said well you've surrendering all the philippines and he said no There's commanders all over the philippines and he says well you you get them to surrender. We kill everyone here. So he sent people out with japanese officer to try to track these guys down and get them to surrender. Most guy ford who had been spent basically a lifetime in the philippines new mindanao like the back of his hand was practically a moral and most of his filipino troops. went into the jungle to become a guerrillas and his were told his america's retold if they leave. We're gonna kill. They will kill everyone and correct door so he some of the filipinos and he were surrendered in near a lake.

Over there to say it's kind of like, OK, Yeah, that's that's great, Tom. What's What's all that mean? What That means is that if you are not a student of history, you do not have know how to react to the events of the day. Let me repeat that. If you don't know your history, you cannot recognize what's going on. Nor can you react appropriately. What's going on. If, however, you have studied history. You will see the parallels What's going on at any given time? Not just today, not just this week or a month, but at any time. You go.

Yeah, I wonder that that day I said, there's somebody gonna pull down their pants and shoot one out. Yeah, that's the ultimate way to really pay disrespect. Yeah, they started acting acting like occupy protesters. They really weren't in there that long. So you know, I read in one of the stories that they were. They were relieving themselves in the restrooms. And then they were. They were taking their Oh, their deposits their deposits and then smearing it all over the hallways. Oh, and I heard that somewhere. Tracking it. Yeah. Yeah, that would pretty. Was that too. I mean, they had there was some urine found. Yeah, they had a variety of ways to spread their their waste products. And this was this was their message to the government. These people, the more I'm reading the ones who decided to lead that the charge inside these were the real far out crazies. These were the guys who belong to organizations. And mostly Cuban on people. You see the video of one of the first insurgencies up the steps to the Senate chambers. There's one poor Capitol cop. I don't know who took this video something with a cell phone behind the cop. He's standing there. You don't see the guy. They don't see the mob. Yet. He's on the stairs. He's kind of holding like a stick some sort of Bataan and he's you conceive, gesturing, but he's backing up. Almost every second of the video he stops, and then he starts to back up and back up. And then here they come around the corner like zombies out of a horror movie, led by some guy from Iowa has got the Cuban on shirt on. And they just kept Emily realized he's not going to hold them off. He's hoping he comes up, but he pushes one of them sort of been. This is the lead guy again. Try to push them back to say You can't go any further, but there's probably 15 or 20 of them and one of him, so he just keeps backing up, backing up, so he loses. She eventually gets to a hallway where is joined by about seven Capitol police officers, all armed and they're all standing here with a face off, and that's when I turned off the video, but this was apparently the first major insurgents. Into the Senate chamber area eventually, you know, they got into the Senate chambers. So yeah, here it is. A source close to, uh Chuck Schumer. Said the invading writers He filed Theo capital with their dung. Staffers saw feces in the hallways. They took dumps in bathrooms and then spread around their poop, said the Schumer aid. It came from the bathroom, and then they tracked it around. There was an intentional effort to degrade the Capitol building. Another congressman said there was urine there was clear desecration. And yet you were busy in the last half hour, sending me polls, Ipso send you Gove that there is a certain amount of support out there for these intruders. Two poles. They were different in the results. But among Republicans between 23 23 45% of Republicans in America supported the actions of the capital. I like to two terms of people could use that to different ends, patriots or fools. Where they fools. A number of Republicans said they were fools now, But of course, the other side there. Their domestic terrorists. They're they're extremists, criminals. The thing is this crowd. Is not going away there. You know, a few of their leaders may have been arrested. It might be imprisoned, but they represent a lot of people out there and they're not going to take the Biden administration down. We're not gonna take it lightly. Well, there was apparently social media chatter about doing something at the inauguration, but they're supposedly Ah lot of the quote followers said. Maybe not. But there were suggestions they should go after other state capitals around the country. Yeah. Go back again. No, the these guys in it for the long haul. Then they actually feel that the United States has been taken over by evil forces. And it is their patriotic duty to fight all these evil forces. Well, they just set their president for four years. I Yes, I know, but he was unfairly deposed. He was a fairly overthrown with the fraudulent election. You see, this is gonna go on for a while that I read. Even rush was talking about Lexington and Concord. Yeah, he said Hey, what referenced e o. These are like the that kind of revolutionaries. Yeah, he was comparing him to the original. Yes, the Revolution War war heroes. It's like first insurgents. Is the first uprisings. Yeah, No, there's there's a British there, so just there's a lot of guys doing that stuff. Some say we're in for a wild four years of bite marks. You know, the thing is part of the story which got buried was that there was a pipe bomb.

where are our troops in the middle east, what are they doing?
"We've got about fifty two hundred American troops in Iraq and in fact we have quite a few troops all over the Middle East perhaps more than most folks realize I want to get a an overall picture of where we stand right now where our troops are in the in the Middle East and what they are supposed to be doing as we want to bring in our friend Tara cop who covers the Pentagon the military and Veterans Affairs for McClatchy newspapers she's she knows this stuff really really well so she's the person I want to find out from so good morning Tara and thanks for being with us on first light after having me one of the things I wanted to find out now the United States has about fifty two hundred troops in Iraq and that this is left over from the the US and coalition campaign to defer to defeat the Islamic state now do we know what they're doing now because we've heard that they've kind of pulled back from that poster in a country where the parliament has just said we want you to leave so what do those fifty two hundred troops do right now sure there's a ton of moving parts right now so like you said those fifty two hundred or kind of a residual force after the defeat of isis in Iraq that for stayed behind it about five training sites to work with the Iraqi security forces to make sure you know if there are any smaller operations the need to be held or to make sure that they kept their training up because if you remember in twenty fourteen when ISIS first reemerge it was because of the deterioration of the Iraqi security forces that they were able to get such a large swath across the country so quickly so those forces now are basically the US forces the fifty two hundred are basically kind of pulling back on the bases and their primary only mission right now its force protection given her on stretch so they're not able to really move around the countryside even though that is supposedly an allied nation well there's a ton of movement going on right now but it is primarily to reposition forces to put them in a better position to defend US interests there so we know that I believe Monday night these air defense missile batteries all across the Middle East were placed on on a high alert because there is some thought that they were running and drones might be used against the for the forces do you know if that isn't the kind of thing where they stay in that state of alert for a long long time and and how long can you keep that up still in a state of alert the batteries and all other forces right now are at a heightened state of alert you can only imagine what sort of defensive postures were under way at the view of the Philippines but I want to expand a little bit so the fifty two hundred we're just the forces that were there because of the counter ISIS campaign there are as many as eighty thousand total in the region now tons of moving parts well you've seen the deployment of thousands of additional filters from the eighty second airborne in the last week there aren't the USS Bataan is moving toward the region with the new twenty two hundred marines aboard the US announced the shifting posture of can be fifty twos to Diego Garcia so there would be an easier striking the filter on the feeder this is a ton of movement narration right now and as many have said this is the most heightened sense of escalating tensions we have seen this region in a very long time
