me alone and I had to talk opera with myself talked opera yeah rigoletto did you talk about rigoletto this time I'm just really boring you know I'm like all right this is why this is a two and a half hour podcast some of us have to work tomorrow all right here we go let's jump right into 1967 musical events in 1967 and the year kicks off right away with a bomb a bomb on January 4th the doors release can arguably one of the greatest debut records ever arguably if you had a top 25 greatest debut that albums would have to be in the top 10 it would have to be yeah you know if you had a top 50 that would have to be in the top 10 right even if you don't like them you have to say that was so ahead of its time oh it's so different nothing out there was like the needle and all you hear it kicks I mean fucking what a way to start an album it's a heavy song it with a bossa nova beat yeah I mean that's pretty clever yeah 67 so you know bossa nova was pretty hip again John Densmore over underrated underrated underappreciated I think you are you are so correct you know never gets the the the consideration that I I don't know you can't put him in greatest of all time but could he be okay if there's a top there's a top 25 drummer top 25 drummers is he in it good question and in rock we'll just say in rock I think he could be I could see him making so I don't know if he's a universal pick but I could see him on some list I mean he's something you'd have to think about like you said like it doesn't get noticed so much you know yeah yeah or it I mean although his drumming wasn't shy I mean he's jazzy as hell I heard um writers on the storm yesterday and his adjustment playing is great in his adjustments during the shows just for that yeah yeah the unpredictability of you know how the how the song was gonna go right because they could rehearse it all they want once Morrison got into that zone well in the drama keeps the beat right yeah yeah the drummer has to stay up with that yeah and played to the clown so to speak right you know and my my problem is if some of the clowns don't have the beat you know at one point they've got to give in like I said Morrison or even Dylan they'll set the tone but they've got to be steady themselves you know it's yeah otherwise it's just erratic but you know yeah guy like Dan's more I mean I had skill I had a lot of a lot of technical ability right feel yes cool so obviously his drums always sounded good yeah on the earlier on the other records even you know three years worth of music whatever I guess I would be who produced some Jack Holtzman was the producer did a good job Jekyll or now wait so no what was it Paul Rothchild yes yes yes I'm sorry Holtzman was he on the record company yeah yeah was that it was that chrysalis or chrysalis I think or just like yes that's a lecture a lecture weren't they on chrysalis though also I thought they were yeah maybe maybe chrysalis was a subsidiary but uh yeah Jack Holtzman's son is Adam Holtzman he's a keyboardist right now he plays with here we go Stephen Wilson but he does a little blog on Facebook and he talks about growing up and he was like six years old and his father brought him to a club to see the tour Wow at six years old he just talks about like yeah it's a great little blog Wow all right and four days later on January 8th Elvis Presley turned 32 on January 14th the human be in right the human be e -i -n human being takes place in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park polo fields with spoken words from Timothy Leary Allen Ginsberg Gary Snyder in others live music was provided by Jefferson Airplane the Grateful Dead Big Brother in the holding company and Quicksilver Messenger Service speeches from Jerry Rubin and others were also given at the event although it's one band there I liked yeah Quicksilver Messenger Service who was it on January 15th 1967 who is your favorite poet of all them I know you're not asking me Arthur Rimbaud who influenced Jim Morrison good answer good answer way to bring that first opening segment rough full circle we're getting better Scott we're good now you guys get a lot of good trust me I'm getting a lot of good feedback so let's keep it at that I don't want you son ask for more money and on January 15th 1967 the Rolling Stones appear on the Ed Sullivan show at Ed Sullivan's request finish it he asked them to let's spend sing let's spend some time together is that the one there you go yeah and then he told him a really big shoe I hate to do this I mean I come back on penalty box I don't say

headphones on January 16th 1967 the monkeys begin work on headquarters the first album to give them complete artistic and technical control over their material and it was fucking horrible fucking horrible what were they thinking they know they were thinking the egos got too big they thought they were the music well the argument can be made that you know Mike Nesmith did write different drum yeah so he could write songs but I don't think he was a pop songwriter you know headquarters and they try to be all fucking like 60 ish and shit they weren't looking for pop were they they're trying to be like more psychedelic yeah I think so there were their channel on the Beatles with those quirky little yeah with anti -grizzelles on that I don't know some weird shit I'll tell you what though I don't care about it myself but it was surely a harpsichord on it because that's what all those records had they had to have a harpsichord and I have the book this the 100 best -selling records of the 60s the monkeys got a they've had quite a few albums on there oh they do yeah they were they were but I mean I thought it was just a condensed period of the show which it probably was but it's still I mean they've got I mean most of their albums sold really well yeah yeah ah you like the show what's it is like the show I did I still like it I still love it I love that that that's so that humor is great like dumbed down brilliantly done though humor yeah way was what they were supposed to act like that yeah you know what I mean there was no like these guys are bad actors they knew exactly how to do that they pulled it off great it was campy it was great for its time it's still great to watch now yeah I do think that banana splits were a better band yeah that's I'll give you the banana splits were a kick -ass band yeah yeah kick -ass man did you see the movie recently came out it's a horror movie with the banana splits the banana splits movie it's a horror movie yeah yeah it takes place in an amusement park and they're they're robotic and in Dyson and slicing baby Dyson and slicing I have to say oh man that's yeah okay yeah Dyson and slicing it's good it's kids again campy movie but I couldn't not watch it yeah I have to say I'm sure Fleagle is a total psychopath well I'm not gonna give you any and no no no spoilers here those was it just Dyson and slicing on January 17

member of NAMBLA I wouldn't the National Association of Marlon Brando look -alikes I heard I'd someone I remember he actually he was a sponsor of NAMBLA but anyway on January 30th 1967 the Beatles

A highlight from Exploring Cultural Identity and Humor with Japanese-American Stand Up Comedian Michelle MALIZAKI!
"Thank you, Mr. Paul Vato. Greetings, ladies and gentlemen. My name is Paul Vato, and this is Paul Vato Presents. And today, my very special guest is Michelle Malazaki. I hope I'm pronouncing that right. That's such a traditional Japanese name, isn't it? No, it's not. Oh, my goodness. I thought it was. Well, welcome, Michelle. Thank you so much for spending a little bit of time with us today. Michelle is a brilliant stand -up comedian, a musical artist. She has recorded a few other podcasts. I first found out about her through my friend Christina Blackburn, who has a great podcast called Storyworthy. And I was a guest of Christina's as well. So it's a great podcast. It's a lot of fun, a lot of industry people. So Michelle, thank you so much for taking time to be here. We're live on fireside, so welcome. Thank you for having me on your show. 100%. I'm so glad that you were able to do it. I have so many questions to ask, cultural differences, comedy, and all that incredible background. Would you be kind enough to tell us a little bit about yourself, where you're from, where you live? Maybe not your address, but where you live, and where you've performed, and things like that. OK, I am originally from Japan. But I just found out I'm not a Japanese person anymore because I become an American. And in Japan, there are only two people, two kind of people, two kinds of people, Japanese and non -Japanese. And I am neither, I'm a former Japanese. Interesting. Are they called, is that Gaijin? Is that the right word or no? I'm not Gaijin. I'm just a former Japanese. Interesting. Is that because you became an American citizen, so you're no longer recognized as Japanese? The second I sworn in as different foreign nationality, then my Japanese citizenship just evaporates. I didn't know that. Wow. And this is because of the Japanese government, not the US government? I see. The American government that you have multiple citizenships. That's what I thought. But I think at that, there used to be a time where you could only have, if you were a US citizen, I thought you could only have a US passport. But I know that that's changed because I know people have multiple passports. So I don't know what changed. Yeah. But with Japan, Japanese government, you can't have dual citizenships. So just one. So as soon as I sworn in as American, then no more Japanese. No more Japanese. All my jokes about being Japanese. Oh, no. Now you can't make any more Japanese jokes. They might get offended. Oh, no. What am I going to do? You've got to rewrite your whole act. I know. Maybe you could divorce your present husband and marry a Japanese guy. And then you could make Japanese jokes. I don't know. Like, I'm still lost since I found about this. Because I don't know. I never belonged to any group. I was an outsider. When did this happen? When did you find out that you were no longer Japanese? I just found out recently. But I did not. Yeah, because I become American citizen a while back. Wow. Wow. Now, you recently went to Japan. Is that right? Yeah, I just did. And I had to get a visa. Oh, yeah, because you're not Japanese. Of course, he has a gift. I'm not a Japanese person. I have to apply for a visa. And then they ask for a picture. So I sent my picture in. And then they called me and said, oh, your picture's too old. You have to send a current picture. How do they know that my face hasn't changed? It's the same person. And you look very young. So it doesn't matter when it was taken. It's the filter, I think. It's like an automatic filter thing. Because my room looks nice. Well, mine's not working, I don't think, because I look old. So I don't know what happened. I've never met you in person, so I don't know. I look even better in person, I think. Oh, a lot of people do. Like, you know, you do Zoom shows. And then you never meet those guys, girls, people in person. And then when you meet them, you're like, oh my gosh, they are really nice -looking. You're like, stay off the Zoom. It makes you look ugly. But I mean, I look the same. I look the same. That's my cat. My cat's kind of famous for barging into international virtual shows. Very interesting, I love that. Yeah, but she never talks to me during the day. No? No, it's just when I'm talking on somebody else other than the cat, then she's just, hey, guys. What's your cat's name? Mochi. Mochi? Yeah, like the food, mochi. I also have a dog named Pinan. Like, all my pets are named after food items. I see that. Do you have any fish? I don't eat them. It's just names. We're not gonna go there, I don't think, right? Maybe. You're like, I'm Japanese, not Korean. Uh -oh, don't tell Bobby Lee. Awesome. These people didn't eat beef nor pork till 170 years ago. Was it strictly pescatarian or vegetarian or what? No, I think, I can't remember because Japanese people believe in many different things, but one of the - When did you decide to come to the US? Because I know that you had an affinity, I think, for maybe American television. Yeah, well, I wanted to, well, I came to America because I wanted to, okay, my mom told me, ever since I was in fifth grade, my mom told me to marry a white guy because half white, half Asian kids are cute. That's true. I actually wanted to marry a British person. I guess you can't marry two, so just one. But then America was closer than England, so I came here. Wonderful. And did your dreams come true? Did you end up marrying a white guy? I ended up marrying a white guy from Ohio. That's as white as you can get. No, I think, I didn't know, but Wisconsin is whiter white people. I didn't know. That is true. I grew up in Chicago, well, in the suburbs, in Illinois, which is right by, well, both Ohio and Wisconsin, and you're right. I think Wisconsin, you could have done a little bit better and found a white guy from Wisconsin. Yeah, oh, well, I didn't know. Next time. Next up, next, yeah. Wisconsin, 10 years younger, that's on my list. Yeah, go to a youth group and maybe you can find a future husband. What does your husband think about you doing standup? Were you doing standup when you guys met or how long have you been doing standup? I actually used to do TV production for Japanese TV and I've done like many different shows, like news about like surrogate mothers, like documentaries to sports news. But like, you know, when I tell people that I was on sports news, you know, you might think, oh my gosh, why are you famous? My hand, like holding a microphone like this was famous right here, just here, yeah, not me. Right, right, right, right. Now, is it true? I used to travel with the Yankees because they had a Japanese player and I get to go inside of the locker room after they take showers after the game. That was my job. What a job. I got paid. What a job. Do you miss it? I don't know, like it was fun. I mean, you go there, we used to rotate like two weeks at a time to follow and that was fun. And some baseball stadiums have better food than the others. Like Arizona Diamondbacks, they have good food, but like Dodgers, eh. Maybe that's a show. Yeah, yeah, yeah. We should do a show where we go to different parks and try their food. Yeah, the San Diego Patriots have good food at the concession stand. Yeah. Yeah, and also Boston Red Sox, they have good food. They got chowders. Of course, Boston. Yeah, but it's kind of like baseball season is kind of hot and then you eat chowders, but it's so good. Wonderful. Did you have to pay for your own food or was it a budget? Actually, at the press level, they have press food and you eat some of those and then you go downstairs and eat more food. I would love to do that job except for going into the men's showers, but you seem to enjoy that. Yeah, yeah, of course I do. They're like, you can leave now. You're like, I'm not done yet. I gotta interview more players. I'm not done yet. So how long have you been doing standup comedy? I've been doing it for like five years. Before that, I used to do improv. I had a midlife crisis and I took some improv classes at the Park and Rec. And then that led me to the Second City and I was just taking a class at a time and I ended up finishing the conservatory program. But improv you have, and I had so much fun, but you have to have team to perform. You know, it's easy to form a team, but it's hard to maintain a team. Oh, I know. I studied improv. After a while, people are not excited to practice anymore. I go, I have to pay 40 bucks for the session and I don't know. And so I started to perform by myself. I was singing and stuff and I had no idea about standup comedy. I didn't know at all. It's like, I live here forever in America, but I didn't know standup comedy existed till like five years ago. Wow, because it's not that big in Japan. Is that right? It's becoming like very recently, but it's in Japan comedy style is usually two people doing skits. So it's very different. And standup comedy, I don't know, I just love it. And you're very good at it. I've seen some of your sets there. Yeah, they're wonderful. And I'd love to talk to you about Second City. Was that in Los Angeles where you studied or were you in Chicago? Yes, that one in Hollywood. Hollywood, yeah, of course. Of course, did you ever do anything at Upright Citizens Brigade or improv? Yes, I also took classes at UCB and I did shows at iOS. Yeah. And I also took an improv class before, like way before when I was pregnant, like seven months pregnant. And I'm like at the, gosh, where are the groundings? Yeah, but I was too pregnant. So I'm like, oh, I can't do this. How long ago was this? How old are your kids? My kids are 16 and 12. Do you like improv better or stand -up better? I like improv. I love improv. I really love improvised music, like musicals. But that one is really hard to practice because you have to have somebody who could play piano or keyboard. And then you have to get a group of people who's willing to make fun of themselves. I like musical improv. The most. You had a song go viral, didn't you? Did you have a famous song about napping? Yeah, I had a nap time by Napster. It's a song for the, it's an official song for National Napping Day. When is National Napping Day? That's the day after the daylight saving time starts. You lose an hour the day before. So you get to take a nap the next day. I didn't know that, that's great. And your song is the official song for National Napping Day? Yes, actually, you know what happened? So I found out, I wrote a song called Nap Time by Napster. And then I found out there's a National Napping Day and I tracked down the guy who found it that day and I send him email. I'm like, I have a perfect song for National Napping Day. Can it be an official song? And he's like, sure.
"blackburn" Discussed on The Trish Regan Show
"Well, because they do not fear Joe Biden. They see Joe Biden this week, and the entire axis of evil, as I said. They are trying to expand their reach because they feel like if they're going to be globally dominant by the time we get to the midpoint of the century that Joe Biden is giving them the running room to do that. I'm terribly worried about this. When you look at the economic posture, Trish, China had a record year after COVID after what they are doing, supplying Russia with arms for Ukraine, budding up with them after what is happening with fentanyl, we have a record year of trade with China. Well, you know, they are celebrating this. My goodness. They have increased the spending for their military defense complex to 7.2% of their GDP. We are financing their military expansion and growth. And this is something Joe Biden needs to tend to. Of course. You think he's compromised. You mentioned that briefly. I am very concerned about what is going on there because he has not taken an action. How do you have a $1 trillion trade deficit? And you do nothing about this. You don't do any sanctions when they are bullying Taiwan and the Philippines. When they are teasing with a spy balloon, look at what they're doing floating the spy balloon out. They're active around Hawaii. You look at the Pacific island nation so they are very concerned about what China is doing to Taiwan. When you talk to NATO, they say that some of the earliest donors to the common fund were Japan, Australia, New Zealand. Why did they do that? Because they know China is on the move. And we have a president of the United States who is not stepping up and is not challenging China, who is not sanctioning China, who is not finding a way to reduce this trade deficit, who is not going to these U.S. corporations that are manufacturing in China and saying, you need to be looking at reassuring and near shoring and working with our allies, not our adversary. China. I think globalism is done. I think that COVID proved that senator that you've got to be self reliant. When you can't even get Clorox wipes because the chemicals made in China and they can't ship it to the U.S. my goodness. I mean, this should have been the wake-up call I know. It's most disturbing. It's really we haven't learned anything from it to your point. We're continuing this trade deficit, and I would just say, you know what, enough. They need us more than we need them. So let's use the power we have all the economic power we have. We appreciate you joining us today. Senator Marshall Blackburn, thank you so much. My thanks again to senator Marsha Blackburn. Meanwhile, there's somebody out there that wants to volunteer at the border. He thinks he could do a pretty good job patrolling things because, you know, he's pretty ferocious and all. He don't let that cute personality fool you. I'm telling you, fluffy is the real deal. Nothing gets by fluffy. You know, if somebody knocks at the door, somebody walks by the house. Fluffy makes himself heard, and nobody wants to mess with him. He is a strong little dog. This little guy, this little guy is the healthiest little dog because of what I feed him, which is rough greens. He takes a supplement every single day. I just sprinkle it right on top of his food. It was created by natural public doctor Dennis black, who cares as much as I do about his dogs. And he's got some big dogs. You can check it out yourself. You can get a free jump start trial bag. All you have to do is go to rough greens felt are you FF green's dot com forward slash Trish rough greens, dot com forward slash Trish, get your free jump start trial bag today. All you have to do is cover shipping and see how your dog responds. Maybe you can send your little pup down to the border and start patrolling things there..
The Algorithms Destroying Our Nation From Within
"Blackburn. You are spot on and there are a lot of people that, oh, you know, they're clutching their pearls and you know they're all worried about this and that and the other. There are people that will laugh at this. Well, there was a, I believe in New York Post reporter that went on TikTok the other day, pretending she was a 13 year old boy to see what kind of stuff she would get fed. The violence, the sexual, I pornography like stuff that she saw, they kept feeding it and feeding it and feeding it and feeding it. And so I was thinking about this. I'm like, gosh, if you really want to destroy a society. Why not go straight into the heart? Why not go straight to the youth? You hit them with those images. Lots of guns, all of that, and not responsible gun ownership. Lots of bad stuff. So you get that on TikTok, algorithms that really pollute the minds of young kids, and you simultaneously make sure that you're fentanyl operations are feeding the drug cartels in Mexico that come right in to our country. I mean, it's like a, it's like a perfect case study and how to destroy. And you know how you need to go to war? That's right. And this is what they are trying to do. And they, every challenge the border town, every state, a border state right now. Because of what is happening, and it is heartbreaking to me. To see these children that are so adversely impacted, the mental health issues. And, you know, Trish, when you have one girl that has mental health issues and is contemplating suicide on an ongoing basis, what does that do to her circle of friends? It adversely impacts and stresses all of them. And we have heard the story over and over and over and over again from parents from principles from classroom teachers from pediatricians from psychologists and psychiatrists who are working with these children. And you hit it with the algorithms that are in these social media platforms. If a child goes on and they are viewing something about mental health or depression or suicide or eating disorders, that algorithm feeds them more.

"Joining me right now with reaction, senator Marcia Blackburn, from Tennessee, so good to have you here. Thank you. I'm so happy to have back on the program with us today the senator from Tennessee, senator Marsha Blackburn senator welcome. I'm delighted to join you. Thank you so much for having me back. Well, it's always good to talk to you and we always learn a lot. Right now, the U.S. does not quite have the capability to handle all the fentanyl that's coming across our border by way of China. In fact, April Haynes was just saying and we just played earlier a clip of her saying that we don't have the capacity. She's kind of surprised that, you know, there aren't enough agents, there aren't enough analysts to deal with this if we don't have enough people dealing with the fentanyl crisis coming from China. What's the reality and upshot of that? And the upshot should be that Joe Biden picks up the phone and calls Xi Jinping and says, hey buddy, you know that $1 trillion trade deficit we had with you last year. That's going to stop. If you don't cut it out when it comes to this fentanyl that you are manufacturing and you've buddied up with the cartels, we know what you're doing. You're sending it across our border and it is adversely impacting. So many of our communities. And by the way, we're going to run the cartels out of this country. But Joe Biden won't do that. Because it appears the more we learn that Joe Biden, his family and Biden incorporated, are compromised on some front. So the Chinese Communist Party does not fear him. And they feel like they can go in with Russia Iran, North Korea. They've created what I call the new axis of evil. They can go into partnership with the cartels when it comes to having someone to distribute this fentanyl and that this is a way to target our people. And you know, Trish when you look at what they're doing with the Chinese Communist Party. Fentanyl is the number one killer. Of Americans age 18 to 45. Fentanyl is the fastest growing killer of kids under 18. You also look at what is happening to young girls, especially, but to all children because of TikTok. And the garbage that is disputed, the way they are building a virtual you, of these children, they're putting them in touch with the drug dealers who are working with the cartels, getting that those drugs from across the border and selling it to those kids, where do these kids meet these drug dealers on social media, with its tiktoks, SnapChat, some of the affiliations, they're making in these online games..

New Zombie Drugs--Made From Chinese Fentynal--Threaten Our Nation
"Getting to the news today, the head of the DEA is elaborating. On the drug trafficking triangle, aimed at America. China is making the raw materials, the ingredients for fentanyl. It is sending these ingredients to Mexico, and that is where the jalisco and Sinaloa cartels to massive and violent Mexican drug cartel operations, that is who gets it in traffic into the United States right across our very open southern border to eventually kill thousands of Americans tens of thousands of Americans and you know what? They're making a ton of money doing this. You hear what I'm saying. This is a massive business. China is sending this massive amount of fentanyl into our country and we are allowing it. We have not prepared to fight back. It's something that even the director of intelligence, Avril Haines, now admits, listen to her here when she's asked about whether or not we're really going to be able to get control of this fentanyl crisis. For myself in terms of the ode and I, our office of director of national intelligence, we have a national intelligence manager that covers this issue and a national intelligence officer. And one of the things I've learned in the two years that I've been there is that we do not have as deep a bench of analysts on these issues and we are not as therefore resourced as we need to be in order to really address this question. That's something that we've been building and that's something that we need to continue to build. So our government was caught by surprise, she was caught by surprise. Nobody realized what was really going on. Listen, I'll tell you a history repeats itself in the Chinese. They don't forget.
Trump's VP? Some in GOP already jockeying for consideration
"While it's known that former president Donald Trump is running again for the Republican nomination. The question remains of who might be his running mate, a shadow contest is underway with Republicans openly jockeying to position themselves as potential running mates with Donald Trump. Trump spoke during a swing through Iowa on Monday. We're going to have a lot of great choices for vice president. We're going to pick a great one. Three women who have been mentioned as possible contenders include representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, at least stefanik of New York, and news anchor turned failed Arizona gubernatorial candidate Carrie Lake, who kissed a portrait of Trump that was placed on stage at the conservative political action conference this month. I don't know about you, but I say we spend every single day from here going forward striving to make America great again. According to people who have spoken to Trump, he's in no rush to make a decision, but allies say he is looking for someone who is unabashedly loyal. Trump has discussed other potential running mates, including Nikki Haley, South Carolina senator Tim Scott, Tennessee senator Marsha Blackburn, and Iowa governor Kim Reynolds. I am Jennifer King
Sen. Marsha Blackburn: Biden Needs to Apologize to Rebecca Kiessling
"You had the crowd going today. What a fun day at cpac. Well, it is and as we said, our segment was human trafficking cartels and beyond the China balloon. Because you look at how the Chinese Communist Party and the Mexican cartels are in cahoots. And you look at the how this fentanyl crisis is unique to the United States and all of that fentanyl is coming out of China, Mexico, cartels, and into our community. What was your reaction yesterday when President Biden actually laughed at a woman because of the fentanyl issue and losing losing children as well? He needs to apologize to that family immediately. I thought that was in very poor taste. I thought it was almost a moment of ridicule of the sadness. And I can not imagine as a mom and a grandma. I can not imagine the trauma and heartbreak of losing both of my children. I just can't. When you look at the drug addiction in this country and the drugs coming across our border and Memphis, the crime rates are just off the charts deadliest city most dangerous city in America, what is your message to people in Tennessee about the policies of these Democrats? Well, they need to look at how the issue of the cartels and the drug trafficking human trafficking gangs. All of that fits together. And pushing these gangs into our cities and that you're driving up the crime rate. The drug dealers. You know, Todd, the thing is, when you talk to the Tennessee bureau of investigation or of any state, they will tell you. The cartel has a presence in our state. The cartel is active, in our state.

Marsha Blackburn: Biden Knows Iran Nuclear Deal Would Hurt Israel
"They know that this would be detrimental to Israel Israel is very concerned about this And they know that Iran is trying to enrich uranium to the point that they are just shy of being able to have that nuclear warhead So why would you embolden someone who is your adversary Why would you embolden someone who is the world's largest state sponsor of terrorism Why would you have sanctions on them So that they have billions of dollars to spend on that terrorist activity by funding the proxies who carry out their work And why would you have the Russians of all people negotiating with the Iranians to achieve this deal And I have been encouraged that Israel is very forced right and pushing back on all of this they are encouraging this administration not to move forward with Iran and I've also been encouraged that senator Menendez had said if there is any kind of deal that is reached it will have to come to the Senate foreign affairs committee for hearings and then it would have to go to a vote in the Senate and quite frankly I don't think that you would see the votes there but mark the point is it is a standing to think that looking at the product of the new access of evil Russia Iran China and North Korea The administration would take an action that would embolden the world's largest state sponsor of terrorism

Senator Blackburn's visit is the third by an American dignitary this month and one that is likely to further test the tense relationship between China and the U.S.. By noon, the Justice Department is set to release a heavily redacted affidavit explaining the justification for an FBI search of Donald Trump's Florida state earlier this month, agents removed top secret government records and other classified documents.

Senator Marsha Blackburn Shares Her Insights on China
"Senator, you've been really good on China for years. We kind of taken our eye off China recently. They're re locking down, we don't know if they're going to take a move for Taiwan, but they're talking a big game. Anything that we need to know about China in recent news, our position towards China, what's your insight there? One of the things we know is you can not trust the Chinese Communist Party. I find it very interesting that China, Russia, Iran, North Korea. That is your new axis of evil. And you look at the China Russia relationship. And I don't think she should be paying is going to be believing Vladimir Putin the next time he says, hey, we're going to go take Ukraine. It's only going to take us about three days. We are in the 60 something days at this point with this fight. And people are rallying the global community is rallying to China. Here's the thing to watch, is China go into dump Russia and let them just be pushed back into Russia, or is China going to prop them up by their oil? Bank them with all the sanctions that are being put on
Senator Marsha Blackburn Can Tell You Exactly What a Woman Is
"Marshall Blackburn center. Welcome back to the program. Good to be with you. Thank you so much. So senator, I just got to ask you the trick question of the decade. What is a woman? You know, a woman is an adult female human being, two chromosomes. There are so many ways we can answer that question. And Charlie, I have to tell you, I was probably dumbfounded as anybody with the fact that I could not get an answer from judge Jackson as to could she provide the definition of the word woman. And of course, my question came in a series of questions that I was asking her about work education, the school board she serves on a curriculum called kindergarten that teaches children as young as 5 to choose a gender. I went to the VMI case and justice Ginsburg had written in that case in the deciding position that there were enduring differences between male and female. This, of course, was the decision that let women into our military academies. And I was moving on to question her about the NCAA and biological males competing against biological females. So since I couldn't get an answer from her about what kindergarten or the VMI decision in justice Ginsburg's writing on that opinion, I just looked at her and said, well, can you provide me the definition of the word woman? Because these cases dealing with biological males competing in women's sports is going to end up with the Supreme Court. Because when you allow biological males into that competition, in essence, what you're doing is doing away with title 9, which means that girls have equal opportunity in sports. They can't be discriminated against.
Secret Gender Transition Closets Discovered in Schools
"Go to this story here. More secret gender transition closets discovered in public schools. A group's fear parents are being kept in the dark. Quote, they started in colleges, but trans closets stocked with transgender clothes and accessories for students to change into after arriving to school and back out before going home are being discovered in public schools with some indication that they're being kept secret from parents. So if you are sending your child to public school, there is a chance, albeit, I don't know how widespread, but this kind of goes to show the culture around government school teachers and how they think they control your kids. There is a chance that they are being exposed to are even participating
Can Republicans Take the Senate in November?
"Well, senator Rick Scott, you know, let's move on to a happier subject. What we're going to be able to do about this because I think we're taking back the Senate in November. Can you give the Hugh Hewitt radio program audience a preview of how you think next November is going to go? Here is where we are. We should be able to defend all we have. We have 21 Republicans up. We should be able to defend all those. Now, someone will be harder. We've added to Pennsylvania. We've got to defend North Carolina. We've got to defend probably the hardest of an incumbent is Ron Johnson and Wisconsin. But if you look at the quality of our candidates in the primaries, we got a lot of primaries that will come up in the next 30 days. We got great people in our primaries. We've done great incumbents running. So we just have to bust our butt every day. It's how you win races. I'm in a 50 50 state. You work every day and gosh, you have success. And where we have our pickup opportunities is one in Georgia. Is the Doug Jones of this cycle. A 100% what Biden Schumer and Bernie Sanders. And so we've got two we've got three good people in the primary. One of them is going to win right now, Herschel Walker's way ahead. We should be able to win there if we run good race.
Texas National Guard Soldier Loses Life Rescuing Illegal Immigrants
"A veteran yourself, I think you've got to be as angry and heartbroken as I am over the death of specialist bishop Evans of the Texas army National Guard, who gave his life trying to rescue illegal aliens who should not have been there. Oh no, it makes you mad. I'm so angry. Here's the way I look at it. When you join the service, you went to defend this country to defend our constitution. Why would our commander in chief put our arms service at risk, whether it's on our border, which we didn't have to do, or with those stupid withdrawal from Afghanistan, which we didn't have to do that way, which where we lost 13 people. No, it makes you mad because you expect your commander in chief to actually responsibly. Well, put you in harm's
Fightting the Threat of Open Borders, and Title 42
"Right now, what can we do to fight this open border policy? The best thing that we can do right now is to make certain that first of all, people are contacting their local state and federal elected officials. And the reason that is important is because right now with all of the drug dealers the cartels, the human traffickers, the gangs, what you have is a situation where every town is a border town in every state is a border state. And when your local and state officials are putting pressure on Democrat members of Congress and on this administration, it will help us to keep a title 42 in place.
Elon Musk, Twitter, and Free Speech
"The thing that really gets me is this had to be done because so much of our ruling class has revealed itself as being aggressively anti free speech. And that's. Even a year ago. People would have been ashamed saying, you know what? We've got a sense or other people's speech. We can't let people talk freely because of misinformation or hate speech. I think it's very alarming development. Well, I do too. Listen, I am not just a fan of the Second Amendment. I'm a fan of the first movement as well. And I've been troubled that what we've seen over the past few years. And I think it really is, we could talk about cancel culture, but it goes beyond that. I mean, we really are talking about the weaponization of conformity. And if you have an unconventional or non conformance opinion on Twitter, the powers that be are going to do everything that they can to marginalize you at best, but to silence you at

"You know the story of how people can touch your lives because when people just say one little thing to you positive or negative right we can send you in a whole different path. Well and especially when it comes to comedy. I would love somebody to tell me that. Because i feel scattered all the time on stage because i have done a lot and sometimes when i think of my life it's almost like no fucking way you know like there's no way you know if you somebody you pitch this movie to somebody and you said all these things went down in this. She did all these things. You'd say like that's a little much so it's hard to keep it tight on stage in know which direction to go so the fact that mary ellen gave you that suggestion. You know it's very inside baseball. It's personal you know and to give a comedian. A suggestion like that and to be so sure of yourself but you know she probably right by then. It's hard for it as being a comedian. Say don't do that job. Why know that joke. It's x amount of laughs. Don't do whatever again now because it's not a good joke. It's just you have to move beyond that. You have to create a different kind of narrative to pick people to connect you. I dated a guy who was pretty famous and he was performing on a cruise ship. And i was with him and he did a really in poor taste joke. He was in the end. We broke up. Because i found out. He was republican. So i can just say that. But the joke was about caitlin jenner. And this is like bef- but while she was going through her whatever her change is and i'm not a fan of her by any means but he put her up like a joke on the screen. She huge screen on a cruise ship.

"Of those teams is eliminate adam. Silver would never. Yeah die. I there is something to be said for that. Ah i'm a little bit scared. But if denver was against dallas and you have nicole yokich versus luka doncic. Both unstoppable offense players. I still think the denver matches better with luca than dallas matches up with nicola. And that's because you have aaron gordon you have. Pj dosier you have michael porter and you have will barton and you can be a little bit more switchable with those guys on the wing then you would have been in the past when denver last played them. They didn't have aaron gordon in their previous match against dallas. Michael porter sat out at least one of those games Douses a good team and lucas. An unstoppable offense player. But i just don't trust the people around him and i think the denver could win that series. And then you get to the point okay. Who's at the top now. Utah phoenix if one of those teams as the theme that denver faces in the second round. Do you really think that it's impossible. Denver couldn't win one of those series. Because i don't i think they could absolutely one of those series because they have the best player and so often that is the that is what matters in a playoff series. And i don't know where this is ultimately going to end up but i tend to think and i tend to trust nicole yokich and i tend to trust joe-marie and i tend to trust michael porter jr. Unfortunately jamal there but trusting. Those guys has has really led me wrong yet. And and i tend to think that those guys just the way that they are wired the way they have fit together and played. Well anything is really possible. So i'm not going to count them out just yet. Yeah i I fully concur with that. I think Just like you mentioned. I i really honed in on on the nuggets. Post jamal Just to get a read of where the team was at and where they were headed in It just hasn't felt like i mean i've seen teams have injuries. And they go on a mini run but it feels more like there are. They're trying to overcompensate and Keep going what they had and the team is just like. We talked about the defense at the beginning. They somehow on the flour it will the change up their identity in a way and it doesn't feel fake to me so i you know i'm not going to place bets or anything actually i.

"Isn't a truly amazing how quickly quickly the Republican Party senators folded man. That was that was That was a big surprise, right? Yeah. Yesterday, the ones that fold Marsha Blackburn, I'll we're not gonna going on there. Contest. Y'all actually you were scared. Remember that? Did you catch any of that? Last week? Yesterday they were counting the vote. Ah, somebody from the house. I don't know who it was, and I can't memorize 435 people, but I did recognize Ted Cruz. He was a sign on senator for the first contention around Arizona. Next thing you know, everybody's got to hit the deck run. Trump's supporters have come here and they're burning the building down on next thing, you know, they're out the door. Well, they come back. And I I caught it was it was just after eight o'clock. Ah, they came back in the session and Grandma got up there and he asked for the floor First, Mike Pence made one of the saddest speeches ever. And then, uh, Uh, Grandma asked for time, and he gave it to him. And Grandma made another disgusting, sad speech and then who else? Much other people, and then they went back into it. And then they certified the vote for Joe Biden. Yes. Oh, Joe Biden's gonna be sworn in on the 20th, according to Congress. And from what I watched it was it was really bad. I mean, bet you know the two people that actually stuck by their guns while they're a couple, actually, But Josh Hall just probably led the charge wasn't Ted Cruz. Cruise stuck by his guns. Hey, he was going for the We need some kind of a 10 Day audit. Really? Okay. What we needed was a complete seating of Donald Trump electors. That's where Hollywood scented with it all, but who else was in there? Oh, the guy. They're out of Louisiana. He's strong. Ah! Kennedy, but anyway I don't know Rand. Paul was, wasn't he conspicuously absent and the whole thing I didn't see him sign on to anything with regard to that He's going to contest it. I don't know. Uh, all I know is that it went the wrong way now. Donald Trump has said, in fact that I pointed out that I posted on Facebook. Donald Trump has said he's going to, although he disagrees with the election. In fact, let's get the exact statement here. Well, I'm getting out. Tell you that I'm fair on extra on the edge. I'm gonna tell you exactly what happened yesterday in just a minute. I'm gonna lay it out for you, like other people are not, um There's a statement here. Damn Well, here we go. Don't This is Donald Trump talking, he says, even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election. The facts bear me out. Nevertheless, there will be an orderly transition on January 20th. I've always said Uh, we would continue our fight. To ensure that only legal votes are counted. While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it's one of the beginning of our fight to make America great again. That's good stuff. That's good stuff. He's not going anywhere. Now. What's his name here? Ah, one of the guys that shouldn't even be in Congress any more needs to be primary dollars. Lindsey Graham. He's making some stupid statement here. He just wants it to be over. He just wants peace and quiet. It's really, really disgusting. What took place yesterday. Now let's look at what scared the senators. Yesterday, A number of people went to Washington D. C. It was kind of a trump rally coupled with we're here to contest the fraudulent election. Hey, they all show up. Take bus is writing cars posted all over Facebook. Hey, look at this sandwich I'm making in the car, things like that. They get there, and I don't know what the count was. How many people were there again? I don't know if I had to hazard a guess I said somewhere between 305 100,000 people I don't know. But anyway, uh There there and Donald Trump comes out, and he made one of the best speeches she's made to date post election. Because he had all the facts about what happened when the lecture was fraudulently throne, which it was 100%. And he he just laid it out. Now nobody's paying any attention to it, especially the people that could do something about it. Court system's not paying any attention to it at all. I want to go in one more detail, but I'm gonna tell you what if the bath the CliffsNotes version is that entire breach of Congress Was set up by Antifa and black lives matter. In fact, on zero hedge See, I was posted this on Facebook to I'll give you the headline. Why was the founder of Fire left Black Lives matter Group filming inside the Capitol. As police shot protester which was that that poor lady got shot. Air Force veteran Mother Mother 4 14 Year Air Force veteran shot dead. You're hearing nothing about that on the news that actually happened Now there's a bunch of just disgusting. But did this really happen with this? This is a setup. Now it really happened. But anyway, so that that's kind of the short version of what happened. But anyway, the back to Donald Trump Talking to the crowd starts talking about. He's gonna walk with them over to the Capitol building. So now, uh, that kind of puts him play a scenario whereby people are being invited. Let's watch Let's march to the capital. Nothing wrong with that. So they start for the capital start for the capital, and at that point You've not got Antifa totally mixed in Not just weren't trump gear, but also just they're wearing their antifa, uh, riot helmets and they've got the plexiglass shields that they use when they're confronting the police or anybody else. And so now they're breaking into the Capitol building. Then I'm going to the door through a tourist entrance or anything like that. They're not staying in the rope lines. Like many people were. Those with the Trump supporters know they're straight up breaching the building. And if you saw that the most telling was the guy with the aforementioned plexiglass shield busting windows out. Those aren't trump supporters. They weren't trump supporters. In fact, anybody that has half a brain would know that so that and Trump supporters did not go into the offices of elected officials and start putting their feet up on the desk and Jumping up on statues. No, no, no, no, no, no, that that those air, not trump supporters, and I'm not excusing everybody in the crowd because people do get caught up sometimes in the mob. See, never are. But the Trump supporters were more or less swept long in the crowd. Probably jostled in the building. Once they realized that this ain't right a medium to turn around and got out as quickly as they could. But all those people breaching the building, I mean, literally busting into the building. Taking, uh, bicycle rack, sir, and those things that used to cordon off the building and smashing into doors breaching loss That was an TIFA. So now our elected officials too. Reconvened at about eight o'clock last night. They went until what? Four in the morning. Whatever now, I don't think one. I didn't watch anything. An entirety, but I watched the first half hour or so not one of them got up and said and said anything about Hey, you know we were kicked out here earlier today. Bye. Antifa Pinson say that No. Uh, no. The whole thing was portrayed is if Donald Trump foam in it a riot and off his.
