Steve Hilton: The Left's Ignorance Is on Display Against the Queen
"I opened up the show and I was talking about some of the just unbelievably vile attacks by some people on the queen and you know what was the British Empire And I was trying to make the point I'd love to get your thoughts on this This is kind of the hallmark of the modern left This isn't it The idea of perfectible better is that there's this group somewhere we've yet to find them though of anointed human beings who are beatified saints and do no ill will and if we would just turn our decision making over to them the world will be a better place And because the queen wasn't one of them and was a deeply religious person who didn't swear allegiance to communism then we should point out every single mistake the British Empire made and not recognize any of their contributions whatsoever This is kind of the left isn't it Of course exactly And it perfectly illustrated Their defining characteristics their ignorance their arrogance and on a personal level just their sheer nastiness and unpleasantness You see all of that on display I mean the ignorance to say that the queen they'd obviously don't know the first thing about how the system actually works She doesn't head of the government She's not responsible for the actions of the British government She's the head of state as the ceremonial role you can't take her personally responsible for the policies of either the British rulers that came before her or the ones that were there during her life because she wasn't there implementing policy the arrogance to say exactly as you just pointed out Oh we know best and all of history is bad And if only we're in charge just ridiculous But the spite the bile the venom the way that they're so unpleasant in the way they make their arguments even if you could even call the arguments That was just disgusting to me

America's Political Left Explodes After Kyle Rittenhouse Acquitted
"A moment. Of course, the other big breaking story that happened after we left you Friday, Kyle rittenhouse found not guilty on all counts. And again, the beast is wounded. If you're a new listener, I call the media, I call academics. I call Hollywood. I call the I call the big media machine, the Democrats. I call them the beast. And sometimes the beast gets injured and the beast houses in protest because the race baders over on MSNBC didn't like the outcome. They had a very predictable response. Here's one of their stars at MSNBC, despicable, despicable response by a woman named Tiffany cross. Ellie, I'm disgusted at what I'm saying. It's not just this trial. It's other trials, but this in particular, the fact that white supremacists roam the halls of Congress freely and celebrate this little murderous white supremacist and the fact that he gets to walk the streets freely, it lets you know these people have access to instituting laws. They represent legislative branch of this country. What are we to make of that? She's given a camera and a microphone and a platform to be on national television, and she spews that kind of bile of just just garbage. That little white supremacist are you kidding me? And it got even worse, consider her guest. Ely miss stall. This happened because this is what the white justice system was designed to do, all right? This is not a miscarriage of justice. This is justice working as intended for white people. And the way you know that is because of the judge. The reason why I was able to predict that was because of the judge. The judge was in the tank from the defendant from the jump. I mean, literally before the trial, he was making motions and making rulings in favor of rittenhouse. He continued that bias throughout the trial. That's without even getting into his maga ring tones without even getting into his off color Asian jokes. Not even getting into all of that, his actual decision making favored the defendant the entire time. By you. I can't even get angry at this anymore. I feel nothing but pity for these pathetic, pathetic people. I honest to goodness. I do. I feel sorry for them. You know, if a jury verdict came down, and the shoe was on the other foot, and it was a black kid. Accused or on trial for shooting white people. Oh my gosh. If anybody on Fox News or newsmax or what America news or the Salem radio network or sale of news channel, dared to say one tenth of what those people say about this white kid in Kenosha, all hell would break loose. All hell would break loose. These people are to be pitied,

Because i pass out and i'm so sick from just the trauma and it might not even be after a hearing like this it just hits me out of the blue to have us be reminded of the horrors of larry nassar to see these incredible women especially simone biles. Everyone just watched her six weeks ago in tokyo and all that she went through there i worked incredibly hard to make sure that my presence could maintain a connection between the failures and the competition at tokyo twenty twenty that has proven to be exceptionally difficult burden for me to carry.

The Benefits of a Plant-Based Keto Diet for Cancer
"I wanted to ask you something. Specific about this This plant based kito for cancer. Because i read a very interesting article you had online. And i want you to bring out from that. What is the number one. Food that cancer cells love and that we should avoid. Yeah absolutely well cancer cells. They thrive on sugar. So they are what we call anaerobic and so they don't need the presence of oxygen like he talked about and they break down sugar and they produce a lot of metabolic waste and they literally survive on sugar. And so you know we're going to prevent cancer or we're going to heal cancer. One of the key strategies is reducing significantly reducing the intake of sugar and starch. So now this this brings into an interesting dichotomy here because some people use a vegan diet to overcome cancer and they do but there may be a better way of doing that here. You talk about a plant based diet being different than what someone would call a vegan diet and what plant exclusive diet so so. What's the difference. There so vegan diet is going to be completely devoid of animal products whereas a plan based ketogenic diet. Like what i teach is just. It really means that plants. We're going to be the majority of the diet right. So let's say eighty maybe even ninety percent of the diet plant based utilizing certain animal products that provide high nutrient density and are lower in particularly protein. And we can talk about that as we as we go on. Okay now that may be very interesting to some folks who have adopted a kito die because usually when people say kito. They see the complete absence of carbs and mostly protein and fat. But you're talking about you know a lot of green foods that inherently have a lot of the Have a lot of fiber which you know brings that carbohydrate count down to a low net carbs. Could you explain how that works. Yeah absolutely so when we look at carbs we'd got sugar starch and fibre really the main carbohydrates that we look at now. The ones that we digest and break down into glucose or sugar in our bloodstream or sugar and starch fibers in digestible. By our bodies our gut bacteria will break it down and no produce b vitamins in different nutrients from it but basically fiber is not counted. It's not going to elevate your blood sugar and so you can. Consume high amounts of fiber and fiber has great benefits for helping pull out toxic bile out of our system helping support our microbiome helping detoxify our body so So getting a good amount of fiber when you're when you are when you cancer or when you're trying to prevent cancer is really good strategy and plant foods really provide a great megadose of fiber. We're looking for plant. Foods that are lower in sugar lower in starched we call them. The non starchy

"And yet that exit helped her team to win silver medals. I am in awe of simone biles. She drove a we. Narrative focused on her team when the world expected spectacular results from me narrative in doing so. I believe that simone biles became a future of work icon. And here's why. I saw mon. Byles recognized her own humanity unlike so many past elite olympic competitors. She recognized that her mind and body were not working together and publicly. She declared that she would focus instead on personal wellness. The past of work was done by people who disrespected their own humanity. Who worked perhaps sixty hours or more per week. Living as if work was their entire day pass practices rendered such workers burned out or rusted out rendering them ineffective and their jobs and also in their non work lives second. She showed great leadership and adhered tightly to the mission. Great leaders don't need to hog the spotlight. We know that leaders of the past measured their success in personal terms but biles demonstrated that the future and the future of work is comparatively selfless. True leaders are about team and mission success and third bile showed us the power of the new personal brand. No longer is the value focused on winning on the contrary in the future of work. Our personal brands are about doing profound work. That makes the world a better place. Alongside elite athletes like naomi asaka and michael phelps. Simone biles became a leading voice for mental health and wellness but also future work. Work is part of a day doing other things and the day should be positive and joyful. Simone biles showed us all that to be. The greatest at something is not what matters in a world in crisis what does matter is leadership of focus on mission and the success of the team. Simone biles is indeed a future of work icon and when we follow her bright and shining example our best days

The women alleged that the doctor inappropriately touched them and other teammates between nineteen ninety four and two thousand and later he was found to molest hundreds of girls and women under the guise of medical treatment. Gymnast i remember that zhao service foster and i'm wondering right now. Where was simone in that. How did she fit into that. Simone learned about the larry nassar news when we all did so. It's very hard because for the longest time my parents would ask case mon like they would never push me to talk about it but my automatic response was no it would would be angry and i didn't wanna talk about it because like no kind of happens to me like there's just no way at eventually. Simone was in the car driving and suddenly it hit her that she had been molested. Also but once. You realized you know it happened to you. It's very saddening. Am i remember just like blowing. Is she called her mom crying uncontrollably and they realized that she was among the many people who had been hurt by nasser and not only was a victim of larry nassar but also a victim of usa gymnastics the us olympic and paralympic committee all the other entities that were enabling larry nassar that had enabled larry nassar to hurt to so many girls and women and simone felt betrayed by that so she was dealing with this double trauma. I don't know it's hard to talk about. It's really hard to talk about. I just feel like. I don't know i don't need to cry. But it's just it's hard coming here for an organization and having failed so many times and we we had one goal and we've done everything that they asked us for even when we didn't want to and they couldn't do one damn job you had one job you literally have one job and you didn't protect us and it's just really sad because now and this is when simone started to think about all these issues and really feel that nobody really care for her as a person. They just wanted her to win. Medals to be gymnast. They didn't care for her as a human. It's just hard and we try to work through it but it will take some time. I'm strong. I'll get through it but it's hard juliet. There's something that i was noticing going back. And looking at the coverage from the time everybody around her and really even her seemed to assume that she was just going to get through it. It's like people were seeing her. Is this kind of superhero. Like this was just not going to touch her. I think that simone felt that sure she she could get through any of this. Because she's simone biles. She's the greatest gymnast in the world. You know while the sport is going through this incredible turmoil and really the whole olympic movement was going through this incredible turmoil of. How did we let the serial molester have access to our national team athletes. She did go started to go to therapy. She did fall into a deep depression over.

There was some own again winning everything and she really wants to make it to the twenty twenty olympics and can't wait for the day where she can hang up her leotard.

"July thirtieth juliette. What time is it for you right now. What time is it here in tokyo. Have no idea what day is it. I think it's thursday at eleven o'clock. Am kind of lost track. This is the life of a new york times reporter covering the olympics. Yeah some people have morning events but Gymnastics is mostly in the evening so like tonight. I'll get there at eight o'clock and i'll stay till one o'clock in the morning. Come back to my hotel and continue writing until about five. Yeah that's late so gymnastics. This is sport. You've been covering for a very long time. And simone biles is someone. You've been covering for a very long time. So i'm wondering if you can help us understand how we got to this moment. Where does simone story began. Her story began in columbus ohio when she was born to a woman named shannon shannon byles. A single mom who had four kids unfortunately had a lot of addiction problems and during my many interviews with her over many years. She's talked a little bit about her backstory simone recalls being at home not having much food or not being fed at all. She looks back sort of with disdain. That the cat was fed while the children weren't at about two years old simone and her brothers and sisters were sent to foster care and they're then it became even rockier for that moving from house to house until her grandparents adopted her and they moved to a affluent suburb of houston where the next turn of her life happened when she went to a gymnastics center for daycare trip for daycare trip so when she was a really little kid is the same year she was adopted so is about when she was about six she went to this daycare trip to bannon's gymnastics and right away the coaches noticed how she was able to understand how her body moved when she came in and did a flip and a half twist their mouths dropped open they said oh my god how does she do this because kids have to i do it into a foam pit or do it with somebody spotting you she was just able to do things in the air without thinking but yet with still knowing where her body is in relation to the ground in gymnastics that's called air awareness so they knew they had someone special right away and she moved up very very quickly in gymnastics ranks from level to level and julia when does she emerge on the national stage of someone to watch she emerged pretty quickly why from the excel center in hartford connecticut. This is the gymnastics championships. She basically showed up when she was sixteen years old. You have one of those new faces. It's a breakout year for her. Small files at the national championships. She gets through this year and it is a tremendous start for simone biles and she goes into wins. The whole thing wins the whole all around. She was just so dominant. She's a scar in the making right there. From nationals. the top women in the on the united states national team move over to the world championships. Which all the best teams in the world compete at and simone biles goes from winning the national championships going to the world championships and also winning everything. Another solar go performance abroad. Happy smile from soda balls cheer emerged triumphant. I would love to have been in those conversations with other teams like russia and china saying who is this girl simone biles. She showed up out of nowhere and this is not going to be good for us in the next olympics. We.

"Was paralyzed during her floor. Routine the international gymnastics federation has made some safety changes since then. The vaulting table is now different. And there's a u. Shape matt around the springboard and the move that left mukhin paralyzed since been banned still knowing stories. Like these lewis says. That biles was well aware of how dangerous it could be for her to continue competing while suffering from the twisties. Did byles say anything about or have you learned from talking to people close to her since about why this bout of the twisties or where this mental state may have come from what may have contributed to it. We've heard from gymnast. The twisties can come for a number of reasons. It is hard to overstate the extent to which simone biles had stress upon stress upon stress piled onto her coming into these olympics and she was pushing through and she was doing what she thought. Everybody wanted her to do and what she wanted to do. Until the moment she realized she was risking her neck by continuing to do it and that was more important to her to acknowledge than continuing to do what everybody wanted from her says. That biles decision to pull out could raise larger questions about the culture of gymnastics and the pressure on athletes to perform no matter what simone biles said frequently with different meanings at times. We're not just athletes where people to so. There's clearly an awareness. We've heard michael phelps speak out in support of the gymnasts in the last few days we've seen various athletes wanting to talk about the impact short-term and long-term that high performance has on their wellbeing and their later happiness in life the impact that a gold medal does or doesn't have that so in two thousand thirteen byles had to be pulled out of a competition and now in twenty twenty one. She's pulling herself out. What do you think the significance of that is. It's clear that simone biles sees the significance that four or five years ago. She would not have done what she did. A hallmark of the abuse scandal was the gymnasts did not feel like they could say no to anything. The whatever they were told by team staff or by coaches or by the national team physician must be right and what we saw when simone biles talk show her team staff with she was saying here. That you're encouraging me that i look okay. I'm telling you that. I'm not okay to compete. We wrote in a magazine. Profile about simone biles a month ago that the world wants everything from her and she keeps on giving it and what is striking to me. Is it in tokyo. She said i'm not going to give you what you want at the cost of my own life potentially. How do you think this will affect simone. Biles as legacy. It is very clear that this extraordinary moment in an extraordinary career will form part of that legacy and saying no to something seemed risky in a gymnasts assessment. When that gymnast has done the riskiest. Things imaginable We'll also form part of that. Greatest of all time moniker. It is absolutely unprecedented. Because everything with simone. Biles is unprecedented. That gymnast of her caliber at her level. At a competition of this magnitude would take decision at such a pivotal moment and it shows to some gymnasts in extraordinary strength and maybe even a tiny shift in the balance.

"You mentioned that cheese. The last larry nassar abuse survivor this olympic team. And i wanna come back to that in just a few minutes. But i wanna talk a little bit more about this decision because beyond it being decision to look out for her own mental health and protected. She's also framed this decision as one about her own safety and the well being of her team. I didn't wanna do something silly out there and get injured so i thought it was best if these girls took over ended the rest of the job which they absolutely did their olympic silver medallist now and they should be really proud of themselves. Can you explain to us a little bit. Yeah absolutely so that Vault that she walked out of n. What that means is that she got lost in the air. If you go back and watch the video you can see at one point. She's lost sight of her ground. She's lost sight of you know where she's supposed to be in her movement and the fact that she lands on her fee is just because she's simone biles like she's that good but she short she cut the amount of rotation shoes supposed to do in half right and that feeling of bulking What what Gymnasts called the twisties rate. Is it's disorienting. The way you twist and flip through the air And part of your training is to do things so many times that you can do it and you have a sense of where you are and you just know you're going to run to the vault you're gonna throw your vote and you're going to land but it's dangerous especially in the sports like gymnastics because if you get lost of where you are in the air and you're unsure about your landing. There's a high probability you're going to get hurt and in fact. Many gymnasts are sharing stories today and threads on twitter stories. Instagram videos about their own experiences with this moment became maroney took to instagram. To share about having this happened to her mid air on the beam in coming down straight on her head. We know that this is something that has paralyzed people. It's very dangerous. And when she's talking about the team which is also citing is that volt was eleven point something something which is not a score. I don't even know the last time that she would have ever seen a number of that low for her on that so part of our decision when she talks about what it means for the team. This is the team competition right. This is not just the all around. This is not her scores alone but a very real feeling of. It's not just that. I don't trust myself but i also don't trust myself to contribute. In the way that i would need to to help my team i would actually be a detriment to them like I think the girls need to do the rest of the competition without me and there were like i promise you. You're finally watched you warm up and i said no so. They were like okay. Well if simone says this and we need to take a pretty serious and so i had the correct people around me to do that through trying to maybe explain to someone who's not really familiar with her or doesn't really understand her or what she's capable of. How would you explain. simone biles. yeah. I mean she's just it's it's it's kind of amazing to watch her into be in in a moment where we are getting to see and we have been able to see her performances the way that she's been able to innovate the sport who the height. She's able to get off of her volts. I mean there's there's such a beauty and power behind her performances and yet you know. She has absolutely pushed routines to places that we haven't seen from gymnasts files landing and astounding triple double during.

"Hi could be here. Welcome to front burner. I want to start by asking you. What was your reaction when you heard that. Simone biles is going to be withdrawing from the competition this week. I wanted to give her a hug. You know she's very very hard on herself in. You saw her even even reduced to tears for performance that was under her standards for herself. Leap there something just not right there. You can see it on her face and so my first reaction when she walked out of during her vault was. Oh no things like. That's dangerous right. It's it's actually quite a testament to her ability that she still landed on her feet and then just Feeling like i hope she takes in does whatever she needs for herself. I mean of course. I'm crying 'cause olympics. Just makes me cry so you know and like happy tears to watch watch teammates step up and so it was just a kind of very emotional but proud of her for doing that. In in space. That is very hard to make that call But set the scene a bit in terms of the approach to the day that she made the call to withdraw. What do we know. What do we know about what byles was going through. Leading up to that decision were there any signs that she was maybe potentially not up for it. Yeah she's been very forthright leading up to the games about the physical toll that it takes to continue to condition in compete at this level and the mental focus and and dexterity that it requires to continue to do this so monday tuesday wednesday friday trained seven hours a day. Thursday and saturday trained four hours and then sunday we get off plus being simone biles. Plus having the feeling like she's Has the world the way to the world especially with the country on her shoulders and all of these expectations and That she's competing against yourself right in in that is in her expectations for herself and she's very recently said like she has tried very hard to compete for herself but she still feels like she's doing it for others in a way that makes it even that much more of a burden to to do what she's doing. I've always kind of tried to compete against myself and beat myself and be better than the last time I competed and i know it's getting tougher. But i'm just trying to do that. Still in the other things that she's been very vocal about is how compelled. She was to return for these games. Let's be clear gymnastics. It's very hard right to sustain across multiple olympics because of the toll does take on your body and you know simone is is twenty four. She's not old but in gymnastics age. Right that is the elder of the team. And you know. She is very vocal about one of the things that was pushing her to return for these games was that she was the last competing nassar survivor. And then if we think about all of that and we add in the pandemic and we add in what a postponement for a year does to athletes. Who have a four schedule. Who have a very clear lead up to these world. Competitions two trials to the games postponing it for a year is really disruptive to that you have to continue to. Kit dishing.

"After her surprising trouble on the vault simone biles briefly disappeared from the competition floor. I want you got back. She pulled on her sweats and said she was there to be her teammates biggest cheerleader. She just wasn't going to compete eventually. She told reporters her head wasn't in the games and she was worried about her safety. The americans managed to win silver medals anyway. Russia took the gold. Some people may look at what just happened and say will the us gymnastics team. Did get us over. That's pretty good. That is pretty good. Those people are correct but still shocking. Yes because they were heavily heavily favored to win the gold. However there wasn't that much international competition or really asia's speak of in the last year and a half and so we didn't really like you know we saw what the russians could do it their own domestic competitions and they were looking good but we didn't really know what they were capable of on the international stage until they showed up here. Did you watch the presser. After after they won the silver medal..

"So let's just put simone biles in context like here's something i think about a lot. How many gymnastics moves are named after her to be determined because she may compete a new one if she decides to compete again at these olympics. She has won the more. You're like so. Don't pretend like this is a finished list. So currently there's one vault to floor skills and one bounce fame skill so currently for potentially five in the next couple of days depending on what she decides. She's capable of doing that. Seems like a lot. Like how does it compare to all the other gymnasts competing against most gymnasts have zero. So i would say favorably so going into the twenty twenty one games. The hype was pretty real for her and the team like i was watching an interview. She did on the today show and you could see how simone herself was psyching herself up but then the the host was too. I mean we're driven..

"How important she was to actually believe it was another thing and if you remember in twenty eighteen she i tweeted right before larry nassar's hearing once she realized she too had been abused by him and was a survivor she. She tweeted this out and as part of her tweet she said. I can't believe as i plan my return to the gym to attempt to make my second olympic team that i will have to return to the place where i was abused for years referring to the karolyi ranch in houston and there have been calls to shut down the ranch. Usa gymnastics was planning to buy it. That was going to be their legacy and this was going to continue to be the training facility for generations to come and they cut ties the next day and she you know she realized in that moment everyone realized while you know she she has a powerful voice and she wields it with responsibility but she knows that when she tweets something whether it is about a new president who you know mary. Bono was hired as usa gymnastics president and she tweeted out A photo of her scratching out her nike logo on her shoes. After colin kaepernick was picked up by nike and simone tweeted out. Oh it's not like we needed a better president or more sponsors and bono was gone for days later. I mean there. There was a series of these kind of events. Were she realized. I i have a voice. I by using it. I give all of these other gymnasts permission to use their voices and she has created such change. E- even you know a small things. I remember working on the podcast. Having a gymnast from the eighty eight team say she remembers the day. She i saw simone biles tweet a photo of pizza and she texted all of her friends from the eighties and said oh my gosh. Can you imagine we live in a world. Now where a gymnast feels comfortable telling the world. She eats pizza or showing a picture of herself on vacation. Because of course you're on when you're not in the gym you're supposed to be sleeping or a picture of her bikini or with her boyfriend and as small as that was by showing her life and the real side of her life give all these other women permission to do the same. And i think also the other thing that it did. Was you re if everything simone does is authentic then when she is tweeting about social justice when she is tweeting about The foster care system. It makes those tweets and those statements equally authentic. Let's take another quick break with friends like these is brought to you by magic spoon..
