The ticketmaster site crashed in November overwhelmed by buyers wanting tickets for a swift stadium tour. We apologize to the fans. We apologize to miss swift. We need to do better. And we will do better. Kinetic and Democrat Richard blumenthal called Joe birch told company live nation ticketmaster. The 800 pound gorilla. Senators are worried about ticketmaster's dominance. This whole concert ticket system is a mess. It's a monopolistic mess. Among the suggestions, making tickets non transferable and requiring more transparency in ticket fees, birch told says ticketmaster doesn't set ticket prices. Pricing and distribution strategies are determined by the artists and their teams. A competitor says the best way to restore competition is to break up ticketmaster and live nation.

Many Democrats Have Lied Long Before George Santos

"George Santos appears to have lied about just about everything. His college education, his work history, even his sexuality. He lied about everything. Though it's a strangest story, it's like, what did this guy tell the truth about and how did nobody catch it? I read this tortured explanation in The New York Times over the weekend about how the legacy media just sort of dropped the ball and didn't vet this guy. So now he's in representing his constituents in whatever district he represents in New York. And he's an inventor at liar, what are the Republicans, what should be done about it? And I'm torn because on the one hand, I know the list of Democrats who lied through their teeth while campaigning for office. Go down the list. And that's the text from Houston. Dick blumenthal, Elizabeth Warren, Biden, Ilhan Omar. I can go on and on. George Santos stays Democrats never pull the knives out. Why do we?

"blumenthal" Discussed on The Financial Guys

"People that are fancy intros. I think seriously. Yes, in a recent interview of U.S. news and World Report Secretary of the Treasury blumenthal, blamed our current rising inflation, you know, large part on our foreign trade and unions. He did, however, say that the government was little to blame. A little bit. It's never to blame. No. The government is never to blame. He was the basket. Unfortunately, it is one of the defects of our political system. That we always put a Secretary of the Treasury and other high government officials into a position in which when they make public statements they are almost driven. Well, what's the word I want to use? I want to use a polite word equivocate. Secretary blumenthal knows as well as you and I do. That inflation does not come from trade unions. That doesn't mean the trade unions aren't grasping, of course they are. But they don't produce inflation for one simple reason. They do not own a printing press on which you can turn out green pieces of paper. The only such printing presses in Washington. I say printing press, of course, in the modern age, we do it in a more sophisticated way. We use bookkeepers and accountants and computers. But it comes down to the same thing. Inflation is made in Washington because only Washington can create money. And any other attribution of other groups of inflation is wrong. Consumers don't produce it, producers don't produce it. The trade unions don't produce it, foreign sheiks don't produce it, oil imports don't produce it. What produces it is too much government spending and too much government creation of money and nothing else. Remember the old school days, by the way, a few times I might use terrific causing wages, right? So those were the old school days. When the Democrats used to focus on wages for hardworking people, Americans, Americans, and then they would unionize, but here's the difference. And I'll never forget this is one of my first, we came back from training on a weehawken New Jersey for pain Weber. And the workers went on strike. At General Motors. And that's because the management just said we're not paying you anymore. We're just not we're not signing this deal.

The Ongoing War Against the ‘Disinformation Police’

"Story is remarkable. Somebody said Charlie, we knew this all along. No, we really didn't actually. We did not know the depth and the complexity and how blatant they are. So look, here's the big takeaway. We created a vast national security bureaucracy. And they're always going to try to justify their existence. So people like Lindsey Graham and senator blumenthal and senator Murphy that kind of uni party defender defense of the national security state, they're always saying, well, you know, terrorists could be around the corner. The problem is, what happens when you have a supply and demand problem with terrorists? Well, then you have to go find new terrorists. If all of a sudden, America doesn't have as many terrorists as you think we do, and ISIS and Al-Qaeda are not as strong as they used to be, but then you've got to go find new terrorists. And those terrorists just happen to be right wingers. So terrorism has faded in the traditional sense. And thanks to left wing politics, we aren't allowed to care about our border, so they've turned on the easiest target. Imaginable. DHS, by the way, should we focus on the invasion of our country 2 million people coming into America? Not worried about whether or not someone is challenging that we send aid to Ukraine or wondering, hey, are we really systemically racist? Policing free speech, monitoring speech, spying on the public and targeting etern internal American dissidents is the new focus of this regime. So the only fix to this is admitting an acknowledging we made a mistake when we passed the Patriot Act, we made a mistake when we put the DHS into power. We need to tear down these organizations quickly because we never needed them in the first place.

It's Paul Ukraine's allies are considering their response to Russia's ramped up missile barrages across the country this week NATO defense ministers are meeting in Brussels. Secretary general Jan Stoltenberg says the alliance is provided Ukraine air defenses in the past, but he is pushing for more. Short range, long range air defense systems to take ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, drones, different systems for different tasks. Secretary general Stoltenberg also says the Nord stream gas pipeline explosions show critical infrastructure needs more protection. Russia says it has detained 8 people over last weekend's explosion at the landmark bridge to Crimea, Kremlin's domestic spy agency FSB says 5 of the suspects are Russian citizens, the three others are from Ukraine and Armenia.

The Auditing of the Auditors

The Auditing of the Auditors

"More than half of the agency's audits in 2021 were directed at taxpayers with incomes less than $75,000, according to the IRS data. So I think we can extrapolate fairly forward that double the number of audits that were done last year are going to happen this year. Because that's where the money is to quote, Richard blumenthal, and Ben cardin. I just want to tell you, I'm only IRS people are fine. I've only known one well. Fred Lynn, went to the lord a few years ago, was in my church for a long time. I think he was the regional director of the IRS out of Orange County, California when I lived in Orange County. Fred was a great and good man. I'm sure everything done on his watch with ethical. And I think most of the IRS people like most of the FBI agents like most of everyone everywhere tries to do the right thing. But if you're working for the IRS and you're an audit and the boss gives you ten files and you bring back 10,000, you haven't found anyone violated the law. This is the boss saying, good job, way to go. Or does the boss say, you must be incompetent. Maybe the goodbye says, you know, let's go over these with you because it's very rare for ten out of ten to come back zero. So let's go over these with you and you double audit those people. And if there's still nothing wrong, those people have been double audited, and they say, okay, let's take another ten. And you really turned down the script on that because every IRS agents metric is what do they find and what do they bring in? Because the other thing they said in The Washington Post is that every dollar spent on pursuing audit yields $10 in revenue. So

"A new highly contagious COVID variant known as BA 2.75 is spreading around the world, including here in the U.S.. CBS doctor David agus tells us the virus is immune invasive. That is that if you got omicron a month or two ago a different variant, then your immune response to that variant doesn't cross over to the new variant. It's changed enough. So you couple remarkably infectious with immune invasive. And then you have another wave in the country. Daily infections are already rising and hospitalizations are up 18%. Two senators are among those recently affected by COVID, majority leader Chuck Schumer, and now Richard blumenthal, the Connecticut Democrat tweets he's vaccinated, and is it feeling any symptoms, but he does plan to work remotely till he tests negative. CBS News has now confirmed the Justice Department is investigating the PGA for antitrust violations. The investigation comes after the PGA said member golfers would be expelled from the tour if they participated in the new live circuit, which is backed by Saudi Arabia. Big names like Phil Mickelson Dustin Johnson and Bryson dish ambo have defected to live, which many see as Saudi Arabia's attempt to improve an image that's tainted by human rights issues. A PGA spokesman tells CBS News the investigation was, quote, not unexpected, we went through this in 1994, and we are confident in a similar outcome. Peter king, CBS News. President Biden says he's proud of a new bipartisan gun law, but he still plays to push for more restrictions. I'm determined to ban these weapons again and high capacity magazines. 30 rounds. I'm gonna let mass shooters fire hundreds of bullets in a matter of minutes. He's talking about assault style weapons. Of course this law was passed following mass shootings in Buffalo and Yuval di, but just last week a shooter killed 7 people at a parade in highland park.

"We are back with Greg Jarrett. He is the illegal mind political analyst for Fox News follow him at Greg Jarrett by his book, the witch hunt and the Russia hoax. Right now we are witnessing it is dick Danang blumenthal, who is asking questions, puff piece questions from the judge that has been nominated to the Supreme Court by the Biden administration. Greg, just a couple of things about this individual judge katangi Brown Jackson. She helped bring a case against the Trump administration to reinstate 81 Planned Parenthood programs across America. She has refused to state whether or not she believes in a living constitution. And then the strangest thing at all of all, we played it in the break Greg. She has this logic about why she gave the lowest sentence is possible to a child pornographers, she said, well, because the law was written before the Internet, the amount of porn that you can child porn that you can access is so much easier today. Therefore, they should be given a break. Is there some legal principle behind that? No, there's none. And actually one can make the opposite argument because of the ease of gaining child porn and people taking advantage of that ease. The penalty should be more stringent. So it's not an argument that I bought. But it's an argument that others will buy into. I think she's obviously incredibly smart. Knows a great deal about the law in the constitution. But she has been very clever in her responses, she will tell you how she'll go about deciding a particular case, but she won't tell you how she goes about interpreting the constitution, which is principally with Supreme Court Justices do.

"Both. I'm only saying this because I was listening to Luciano Pavarotti as you were just now. The unacceptability of penitence on the part of the left is one of its many, many cruel characteristics. I often ask to bad people flock to the left, or does the left make people bad? And the answer is both. That liberals, liberals do nothing, they watch. They watch the left and they vote for the left, but they don't act like the left. Talking about the left, senator Richard blumenthal. Of Connecticut. What was it this week? Yeah. This week he spoke at a Communist Party conference. And it wasn't that he spoke at a Communist Party conference to say how evil communism is that it's really on a par with nazism. Unless you think that victims of Nazis are more precious than victims of communists, and I say this is a Jew was preoccupied. His whole life with the Holocaust. And it is a unique evil. There's no question. The Holocaust is. But if you read about the Ukrainians deliberately start to death. 6 million or so. The 20 to 30 million in the gulag killed murdered tortured frozen starved by Stalin. The 60 million or so starved deliberately by now. And what happened in Cambodia with the communist regime there. For a man to speak at a communist U.S. senator to speak happily at a communist conference, didn't he? Did he speak admiringly? I always careful. I know you did. So put it up again. This is beyond belief. Although I have to say, we're living in a time where pretty much nothing is beyond belief. If a man can race against women in college swim, swim meet. Then really nothing is beyond belief. And that you're supposed to accept it or you're a hater. So this is from the wonderful epic times Democrat senator under fire after speaking a communist group gala. Senator Richard blumenthal, Democrat Connecticut. Let's see here. Spoke during a recent gala held by a communist group hailing the event as a remarkable occasion, Plymouth's president present when the Connecticut people's world committee and branch of Communist Party USA held an awards ceremony earlier this month. Okay, so anyway, he was introduced as a special surprise guest. I really excited and honored to be with you today and to share this remarkable occasion blumenthal said. You don't have to agree with anyone or every one. With any party or any particular union or organization, I'm here to honor the great tradition of activism. And standing up for individual workers that is represented by the three honorees here. Plymouth all spoke for about 6 minutes. If you are not already part of the Communist Party, we invite you to participate and contribute and join Lisa Bergman, one of the events hosts. Set after the speech. The senators appearance was promoted by the committee in a summary of the night's events. Mercedes slapped a former Trump administration strategist who hosts the conservative political action conference wrote on Twitter, my father was held captive and tortured by the communist regime in Cuba. It is insane and she capitalizes insane. To watch politicians in our country embrace the ideology that caused millions across the world. To pay a heavy price. Blumenthal one of the wealthiest U.S. senators is cozying up with the Communist Party the Connecticut GOP said. That's really something he is. He's like a $100 million..

"Platforms And so this is the 5th hearing that senator blumenthal and I have conducted And we are currently writing legislation that will deal with online privacy Children's online privacy data security and reforms of section two 30 So one of the challenges I would think if I were in your shoes is there's a range of issues there a range of proviso social media and they aren't all the same issues Let's talk about Instagram specifically today because most of what I've read has really been about body image particularly for girls and young women Is that what you're focused on today Yes we're looking at the harms that come from Instagram And indeed body image the depression the anxiety that comes from Instagram having children spending hours of their time it is a developmental issue a mental health issue a pediatrician's talk with us all the time And like I said there's quite an army now of parents teachers and pediatricians that are looking at this and saying something has to be done Interestingly enough Instagram pushed forward with what I call half measures On the eve of the hearing trying to show that they're going to give parents more tools and the toolbox to regulate how children are online But there's no transparency There's no timeline for implementation There is no process for how parents are going to be communicated with by Instagram So you know they did try to say hey look at us We're doing something constructive But it is not enough to satisfy a senator born with all or me or the committee and it certainly is not enough to satisfy the parents who are really quite concerned about this The other thing too In addition to the self harm that children learn from a lot of these videos and social media platforms and from Instagram you also have predators and pedophiles that are using these platforms to track and stalk children Is this something that could be fixed provided there was goodwill Or is there an inherent problem a conflict here Because some of the algorithms that may direct some of the teens and even children to images are the algorithms that allow an Instagram to make money I mean is there a fundamental problem here attention Yes the tension is precisely that Instagram Facebook matter and the other social media platforms make their money by the number of eyeballs that they attract every day and the length of time to stay hold those eyeballs That is one they keep offering up content to these young users They are trying to pull them for longer periods of time And this is how they make their money They're worth more As a user because it allows Instagram to data mine them.

No, like literally nowhere. I mean, I mean like maybe if I was. Like, I guess you wouldn't be married then. I was like, if I was like a tween, you know? When I first wore slip dresses. Right, but it wouldn't be like, but you'd be wearing it as a clothes. Right. I know. So the right, go to Europe if you want to get crazy. Maybe with this, I think you could pull it off like over a bathing suit. You know, but it'd be kind of like a sexy moment. Sure. Do you watch Real Housewives? I don't. Okay.

I kinda wash my hands clean and I mean I still it was specifically like fashion and it wasn't really like gadgets and stuff, which I've never really been super knowledgeable about. But I've always been really into fashion and so I still look at fashion shows sometimes and I'm curious, but I used to have to shop, see what was out there. One day to come up with what I wanted my column to be about. It's like I just walk around in the city and go to a bunch of stores and see when you design a truck there, what looked good.

"So if you live in New York, you don't know that, but in California you can buy wine. You might win everywhere. Anywhere and everywhere. And that's the other thing too is just sort of by pure osmosis, no longer being separated from alcohol in the way that I was as a consumer because I wasn't going into places where alcohol was being sold because I wasn't buying it. I mean, now it's just all around me and I think I take it in more. I tried to buy lover boy the other day. I was trying to find it because I loved watching summer house on bravo. And I wanted to bring it as a joke, but everyone also loves it, but I wanted to be like, you know, we're watching winter house on bravo, and I wanted to bring cans of love, Brian. I couldn't fucking find it anywhere. But that also sort of calls back to the supply chain issue with cans, aluminum has been tough. I say that like, I know what I'm talking about. Another thing I learned on summer house because during the pandemic, I know aluminum is also suffering in the supply chain. Yes. So has there been any sort of stopgap for you guys? Or is everything okay? Are you going and stomping on the grapes yourselves? Well, we're not all over one is made in France. Right. So we haven't been used to take the best part of the year as our business strategy. Yeah. But we haven't been yet since a pandemic. We actually just ran into our biggest supply chain hurdle today, which is has to do with the foil around our mini bubbles, which are many bubbles or single serving, super cute. Great for when you just want to have one drink. But they sell really well. So of course we need to have some more and we're running into an issue with that. I bet which has not been we have to make a decision tomorrow morning. What are the choices? You know, I think that what we've learned is a lot of companies are going to have to deal with this and the kinds of materials. I mean, it's not the wine. But it's fun. You know, it's part of the packaging. And I think the consumers understand that things aren't perfect all around. Well, they're definitely people are becoming much closer to how they shop what they're shopping for and in the manner in which they get it. You just don't I think to a lot of people food just shows up on the table. And I think for a lot of people, packages just arrive in the mail. And I think I'm guilty of that to some respect to some extent rather. I mean, I do have a husband who is a literal agro journalist. So we have been talking about this supply chain in my house for like two years. You gotta get ready. It's gonna happen. And he's gonna go on talking about it..

"With your friends who live across the world? Personally 'cause I'm like a big reality guy, but I can see it for other people. Well, that's fair. I was gonna say that also a part of this is also bringing it into the real world. The AR component of it. That's augmented reality. That's augmented reality that's graphics overlaid onto the real world around you. And I think it'll be a hybrid of both. I think we'll go into these virtual worlds sometimes, maybe when we're working or when we're socializing, remotely or playing a game. And then we'll have these AR glasses that augment what our phone does, that shows directions when we're walking around that shows texts without needing to look at a screen. And it's going to be a mix of both of those worlds. But what's important to note here is that Facebook doesn't really care if you or I are into this idea, they care that the kids are. I mean, I think kids have shown that they do love these 3D worlds, like Roblox user base is heavily teen focused, even pre teen and same thing with Fortnite where people are already hanging out as these disembodied avatars that aren't really them in socializing. There's concerts, Travis Scott performing in Fortnite. It's already not just a game. And so this is already happening in our 2D screens and the tech is being built to make it fully immersive in 3D. You mentioned that this all was sort of inspired from a plot point in a dystopian novel, and this is the company that's currently in trouble for bringing the world a whole host of problematic alternative facts. And now they're saying, well, what have we brought you a whole alternative reality? It's wild. Do you think anyone in the company is aware how that might not be the best look? I do think they're trying to approach it in a way that they didn't with the original version of Facebook. When Facebook was first built, they didn't think about any of this stuff. They didn't think about that it could potentially be used to help organize the insurrection. It was all about just let's try to get as many people on the service as we can and get them broadcasting to as many people as possible. So if this metaverse world is built in a similar way where you're able to communicate to millions of people instantly that you don't know and be introduced to them through algorithms that you have no control over, then yeah, we probably are in for a problem. I hope that they design it differently. It's pretty early. We don't really know exactly how all this is going to work. I would hope that the last 5 years have taught them that they can not build this in the way that they build Facebook. Is there any chance that all of this attention on the company right now could impede this pivot to the metaverse? Well, it's interesting because what the regulatory attention is done already is kept them from being able to buy the next Instagram or the next WhatsApp in the current social media world. I think a Facebook would have had its way. They would own snap, they would own TikTok, they would own Discord. They used to just buy anything that young people thought was cool. They can't do that anymore. I don't know if our lawmakers understand the meta verse enough or kind of how big this could become to preemptively legislate what Facebook can do. And our laws aren't set up to just impede a company from buying things in a nascent space just because the company has wreaked havoc in parts of civic society. It's an antitrust debate, but it's very complicated. So I'm not sure. They're buying a lot of VR companies. They spent about a half $1 billion on a company building an arm band. They can read your thoughts. And at the same time, regulators are saying we have antitrust concerns. Meanwhile, they're buying mind reading technology. So they seem to think they can get away with this. So what you're saying is we got to get blumenthal reading about the beta verse. Well, first he's got a band fence. You got to keep that in. And while all of this is happening, Facebook still is the most dominant social media company in the universe in our reality. They are, they have a population larger than I think any country on earth. They're growing slower than they used to, but they're still growing. So while the company pivots to an alternate future reality, we should remain concerned about how they are managing our present day reality. I mean, sure, I think that's what the reporting on the Facebook papers is trying to do. I think lawmakers are trying to figure out how they can legislate big tech. The problem is is that a lot of the issues with Facebook have to do with free speech, they have to do with the constitution. They have to do what the government can and can't tell a private company to regulate with regards to speech. But based on my read of a lot of these hearings and talking to lawmakers and just hearing what they have to say, I think we're a long.

Biden Turns From Afghanistan to Domestic Agenda

"I am joined by byron york at the washington examiner and fox news. Good morning byron. How are you good morning you doing. Well thanks The lead story for me today has also the lead story in the wall street journal. The headline is biden seeks to shift focus to domestic issues after afghanistan. Exit white house plans to spend september pushing for passage of the president's agenda as he faces falling poll numbers. I personally believe that. Most americans know about the thousands of american citizens l. p. r.'s and sib holders abandoning afghanistan that they don't quite know the details but they're intently concerned with it and that it's an iceberg issue that the president is mishandling by treating it as something that will be forgotten. David drucker disagrees with me. Brian rosen wall. Very much disagrees with me. That americans are paying attention. What does byron york thing. Well i think that american's feelings about us citizens being left behind ghanistan. I think those feelings are essentially folded in to the poll. Numbers that you're seeing Biden's approval rating for his handling the situation afghanistan which are in the twenties. I mean those are nixon and watergate. Poll numbers So i do think that americans are aware of that now. A couple of things about biden changing the subject. Of course he wants to change the subject answer as well A lot of the pr. The question is what will allow the press. Go along with it if you look at politico's playbook this morning and we just tiny tiny little mention of afghanistan Much more on the biden Agenda on the other hand i was. I didn't hear the first half hour of your program Did you read. Senator blumenthal's tweets. Today did not. I tweeted the story out that he is outraged. He's a democrat but go ahead and tell people about it. Well Senator blumenthal Yesterday afternoon Posted a threat on twitter. My staff and i have worked night and day to secure the safe passage of two planes waiting in mazari sharif to take american citizens at risk afghan allies and their families to safety. My office join forces in this humanitarian mission with an incredible coalition of advocates ngos former servicemen and journalists to try to evacuate our fellow citizens in afghan allies by the way ngos former service members and journalists. Anybody missing from that list. Department and pentagon. Yeah exactly so anyway.

And why the squad didn't leverage its vote for the speaker for medicare for all vote and why this squad so narrow and congress why the squad didn't be coverage it's it's it's it's rained on the stimulus to get a fifteen dollars minimum wage. So she started answering the question and at some point one of her staffers or someone who knows her got involved and kind of whisked her away and not led to all this backlash among some components of the so-called left on twitter. Oh my god. She doesn't serve the best inches. She's there in an effort to prevent people from getting victim from their homes. How about focus on the topic at hand instead of focusing on a failed nonsense strategy from literally eight months ago and the reason why i say it's a nonsense strategy is because it's irrelevant now. It's irrelevant now. Nancy pelosi as speaker of the house. You guys push for something. They didn't do it. So are we just going to focus on that for the rest of these women's political careers or are we going to give them props for what they're trying to accomplish right now on an imminent issue. People getting kicked out of their homes in the middle of the pandemic. Are we going to focus on that at all. And what's fascinating is. When that short video was released everyone was like oh look at that. She's so dismissive. But you know. Grey zone isn't known for providing context and their video content.

Who dare to speak out against them. Like i'm doing right now but guess what you're not going to shut me up now. There was someone who was also involved in this effort with cory booker. She was there the whole time. Kristen mink tweeted about the interaction after there was all this backlash toward corey bush. How she handled that question from. Max blumenthal she says no. I was there in this framing completely wrong and disingenuous friday night. There was a guy who himself as from the people's party. Ilhan meaning ilhan omar chatted with him for a long while and went to follow him on twitter. There she found offensive mean memes about the squad. So this is a quote tweet from max. Blumenthal tweet Where you know. He claims that you can read the tweet for yourself. In a tense and intense argument broke out last night at the capitol between an activist and members of the squad on their refusal to directly confront pelosi and he says that he asked corey bush about it okay Kristen mink continues to write the convert the conversational pattern guy. Lobs accusatory question. Why won't you or didn't you do. Xyz members respond with detailed info guy lobs same accusatory question as if nothing was said. It was ridiculous and distracted from the urgent issue. We were there for housing now. I'm not sure. If she specifically referring to nick brana in the first tweet in this thread. Or if she's talking about max blumenthal. She quote tweeted. Max blumenthal which goes along who goes along with the same narratives that nick brana the head of the movement for people's party Has but what's fascinating is if you look at other videos of the several days at this protest was taking place on the capitol steps. You'll see max blumenthal Harassing people causing trouble and making it all about him. Instead of the people who were facing eviction during a global pandemic. Let's.

"Like with david jacobs head on the show a couple times and also kind of interleaved those interviews with a woman named mary rodwell. Have you ever heard of mary. Rodwell show show well known nice. Nice very nice person. So they're kind of going back and forth on this issue that you explore in the book of the goody versus batty evily t versus spiritual loving here to bring transformation kind of et and david jacobs. Who is it's important to know. I think if i can interject i think david jacobs and a bunch hopkins have to be understood from an atheist perspective. That's what they see. When you talk spirituality those guys it just complete they go. You're not mean there's not any of it anyway. So why even talk about it. And that's how they see it but they also have some pretty solid evidence. They bring back that. That says that i mean like david jacobs. Some people criticize him that. He's not a professional hypnotist. Well i gotta tell you as a pretty smart guy. I think he trained well enough and it sounds like his protocol was pretty good. He tried to intentionally mislead people. You know he would say okay. Now go over to the corner of the craft and they'd go. Okay wait a minute. There is no corner of crafty goes. Okay yeah that is confirming what you said anyways. I don't want to long in the story but being david jacobs. I'm interviewing mary red bull. They're going back and forth one sank. Evil batty t sense. People back rapes people which comes through again and again. I don't know how how we understand. That inside of our culture is anything other than the ultimate intrusion of our personal space and that is reported and then go to mary. Rodwell says look deeper. You know there's a spiritual thing but here's the point. David jacobs one. I'm sure is. This is a project this program. This is like as we would understand it in our world. Somebody's trying to get some shit done right. So then i go. Manic say merry. What about that long pause and she goes. Yeah well it is definitely a program. They are doing some kind of genetic manipulation that means they are doing something. There is an intention allergy to it. There is a directive to it. And so i guess i'd throw that out there and what do you think about that. We jump into that other space of other rea- you know other dimension and stuff you know. Well listen as jack valenti and other experts have said if that's the case they're very bad scientists because they have to keep doing the same experiment over and over again they want to know how reproduction reproduction works. So they take the guk. The man and woman sometimes people who know each other and make them have sex in front of the alien beings so they can understand reproduction so as one anthropologist told me for my books you don't need to do that. You just get a hygiene manual reproductions. Nothing ought to figure out to make people go through that again and again and again and to you know examine the bodies again and again through all these medical procedures that you know the experiences detail. At great length the actually describing the instruments used a. So why do they have to do it again. and again..

"Peer reviewed article. Several times was rebuffed. Let me set this up a little bit. Introduce correct me. If i'm wrong john. Mack writes a book abduction human encounters with aliens. As you mentioned he's already been on the circuit at harvard in terms of making presentations doing this stuff. But now he really goes public. Oprah winfrey larry king. He's out there in this way that you're talking about as open like hey. This is what happens. Aliens are abducting people and having sex with them in order to hybrid humans. That that's the newsflash hair from harvard. Harvard doesn't like that so he doesn't like that now. I make the point in the book. Alex that harvard is no stranger to anomalous research. I mean william. James was talking about seances at harvard hundred years ago. And they were okay with that. They don't disowned. William james but there was something about john mack that rubbed the wrong way. And i think it was as you mentioned is appearance on oprah He was all over the media and he was kind of open. Guy about it and Maybe that that disturbed them apart from the subject of alien abduction being so she aided with harvard and harvard professor so anyway they convened the secret inquiry which I call and they call at one point and they mentioned as an inquisition. now they said they. this is not an inquisition. But he's a harvard. Psychiatrist says well if it's not an inquisition. Why do they use that word to describe what it isn't so it's about the money this is not about the money right so it was an inquisition. It inquired into his finances and quiet into his mental processes. That he believe in. Ufo's all of these things that really should not be part of an inquiry of a professor Join academic freedom at a at a major university. So they called in his experiencers. They called in his colleagues a lot of people they called and colleagues who were not particularly friendly to him because he took some of their patients and treated them. When the when you know fellow psychiatrists wouldn't deal with the teas so there was some people who had an ax to grind and The committee spoke to them and the committee was also a very weighted towards scientific. Materialists if you can't touch it in a measure it tasted in ain't it ain't it doesn't exist and john. Mack was trying to tell them that. There are things that we don't understand in the universe and even physics is beginning to grapple with these now. spoke action at a distance. And all the things that are supposedly impossible so he was trying to explain to them. That things we don't understand but it doesn't mean that they're not real and they said well. What's your proof any said..

"Getting you put this shit on the accelerator. But when i go you go nick. That's from the movie. The signal. Where nick and haley along with another. Mit student whose name i can't remember are on a cross country trip to kind of work on some issues with haley relationship with. They don't realize hacking they did at. Mit is following them. Because actually it was part of an alien abduction government sponsored program really alternative reality simulation kind of thing. Have i lost you. I hope not because wacky is that might sound in the cy. Five movie reality. We seem to be in. It might be a lot closer to the non reality reality r- actually end and at the end of the day. That's really what this amazing book by. Today's guest ralph blumenthal whose authored. I think the ultimate biography on john mack. Well i think that's what it's all about. Here's a clip from the interview. What john mack has done along with. A bunch of other people has shifted the burden of proof. These experiences that people are having are not the way that we'd normally talk about them real because my read of it is they are real. We just don't know what real is anymore. What are your thoughts you could not. I could not have said it better now. John often said if anyone has a better explanation. I'm willing to hear it so it's not mental illness. It's not a mass delusion because these people don't get together publicity seeking because they shy away from publicity. They don't want to be known they're questioning. They wish it wasn't true. It's not books. They read a move zinc kids two years old till the same stories so he's eliminated all these other things that it's not so then he says okay so as far as i know nothing has happened to these people other than what they said. Welcome to skeptical where we explore. Controversial science and spirituality with leading researchers thinkers and their critics host. Alex occurs and today we welcome ralph. Blumenthal skeptic oh ralph is the author of the believer alien counters. Hard science and the passion of john mack. It's i really love the title. By the way ralph i. It captures so much anyone who's read the book you know. There's some kind of you've done a lot with just a few words there even with the and the passion of john mack. That was great. So thank you thank you. A lot of work went into that title. Titles are important.
