I. Russia is now claiming they are done and shipping their vaccine. And they were shipping it. Well, you'd think from the way everyone is saying it's GonNa suck. It's no good questionable. We don't have enough information. We don't know what's going on within. Yeah because it doesn't say Madonna or any other US company that's been. Pump and dump, and if you think it's over no no. It's on in fact, this interview with Bill Gates. The Mr Vaccine who set up the Gavitt that is the that get to the gates. Something Vaccine Alliance but it's the vaccine companies, other commercial businesses, government and. To some degree government and the bill and Melinda Gates. Foundation. And It's really this interview which is on Christiane Amanpour except she had some some guy from CBS or CNN interview gates. He's said it wasn't a Isaacson that was interviewing him can't remember maybe it was. Yeah, he was at home and he had a jeff that made his head looked like a like a giant egg. It looks. Kind of medieval. Castle. Excuse me. So the question came up. About leadership and I think you mentioned this done just the last show Bill Gates. He's like we need more leadership on the on the vaccines more leadership from the US or just not good. Then what does that mean? Exactly you just said if we can get the US show global leadership, we've been retrenching from that from a few years. Now, what do we need to do to show global leadership? What's reasonable straightforward if we would put up four billion to the special coronavirus on the back seen organization Garvey's created. Okay. So the first thing out of his mind, US leadership would mean. More money into the group that I'm a part of an started four, billion dollars the vaccine organization Garvey's created than we could raise the rest of the money from others. Likewise, if we use global sounds like he's got the financing, but he's but someone said Hey. We'll match it if the US kicks in otherwise we're not on board and then we could raise the money from. Now, this listen to this he is schilling for does. Than, we could raise the rest of the money from others likewise if we use Global Fund. which would then take on covert or support disease that it would progress. If this is also important he's had more than. Fifty sixty billion dollars in the bank. Was it he just cough it up while he says Global Fund, it's only twenty more seconds. He says Global Fund. That's him. Would kick in something, but it's not just a kick in something. which would then take on Cova four disease that it would provide therapeutics for. Also, you know four billion. Billion their four, billion there. So he says I think he's saying he'll kick in four billion if the US government kicks in fourbillion. That what. Say That now, let's listen to the whole goal. Believe he's does what he's saying. That's exactly what he's saying. Why isn't he say we'll I'll kick it in. Says that in Bill Gates Language Listen again on the vaccine organization Garvey's created than we could raise the rest of the money from others like white SOCLEAN's Global Fund. which would then take on covert us a fourth disease that it would provide therapeutics or. Also for billionaire. So he saying they would put in four billion, but he needs four billion minimum from the US government and I guess it's a twelve billion. He'll need an extra four from someone else he's trying he's trying to raise the cash you know compared to the trillions of economic damage or supplemental thing you know getting the international response. Showing. Our strong role to get that going you know. Eight billionaires. Incredible. Bargain. And he coughed to. To. One of his tells. US before he says an incredible bargain. So. Why do you think I mean eight your I agree with what you're saying that? Well, let's just dropped that it's not important. Let's go back to the basis of this whole back and forth, which is global global. Yes. Yes. Isaac since all in on NAT and cases all in on this this whole thing has been promotion of globalism from the get-go. If right from the get go revenue beginning, we needed more global global leadership in. It's like we're dropping the ball 'cause we should be the big global leaders. Well here, and here's the fun thing Stephen Mosier, who is AH scientists in his own right But he has taken upon himself. Think we we might have. Played a short almost unintelligible clip of Talian re doctor scientist who wrote a whole book on exactly how the corona virus came to be, but it's only in Italian it hasn't been translated and you can barely understand what the guy saying it was. It was a couple of shows back to Stephen Mosier is a is assigned and he's been writing a lot about about the virus and about China and you know it seems in fact, I sent this article to you that he wrote. That's what it is. I. Sent this article to you about the origins of the coronavirus before I play that clip curious talking about. The fact that we actually can't create a vaccine that's going to work and why why. Why China has refused to provide the complete genome of the China virus to the World Health Organization to the United States or anywhere else if the Chinese provided the Matrix virus that is the original virus, the source via that they created, it would have meant admitting that SARS Kobe to the China virus was created in the laboratory. In fact, he went on to say the incomplete genome made available by China lacks some answers of AIDS amino acids, which itself is a smoking gun. So if you look at The incomplete genome of the China virus that has been provided by China you can see that there are pieces missing that constituted a smoking gun. Now, the key question, of course, for those of us who are living through pandemic concerns development of a vaccine professor tree toe on this point is not optimistic. He says given the many mutations of the China virus. It's unlikely a single vaccine that locks the virus will be found quote.

School's got a lot of notes from from teachers about schools and homeschooling really the we speak from a very. High Point at hot point of high. Privilege. here's one of our teachers. You're talking, Sunday show about how many school districts we're going to or talking about going to online learning of this online learning in general not just homeschooling but home schooling through a through zoom there two groups who this does not work for the first is the poor who can't afford or don't have broadband or even dial up is true. As for the second thirty plus years ago when I lived in Silicon Valley this particular producer says I had a girlfriend who taught kids with learning disabilities. This include having been a principal at one that only taught kids with problems like severe dyslexia using unique system developed by women. SEATTLE. At one point, we set up an office at our home so she could do one on one consulting work with them but there's one thing that was clear that kids with dyslexia and there are other others who have far worse. Problems require person hands on one on one teaching to get any benefit from school at all. Many were behind their peers before the pandemic. So imagine where they are. Now that schools are closed standard online teaching for them just doesn't work and I. said before I retired I spent eight years working in the Training Department of a company that made slot machines and software for running casinos created hundreds of online learning courses and videos for employees in customers as useful as they were the need for in person training kept our classrooms filled if adults without learning disabilities don't find online courses sufficient for the needs. What does that say about kids without learning issues? And these days as you know, most kids have a learning disability. Well there's also the point that these kids aren't being served with the instructor they already had. A, very poor. Are that enthusiastic about school and they learn in the classroom many of them don't even go to the classroom and then there situations like this tomato find it. Funny. The poor is where you have two parents who have to work and the older child has to stay home and Babysit the younger children because they can't afford That's a lot of that. There's a lot of that. Is a lot of models for poor Here's an interesting story. Re this is the W. T. F. story of the week. Okay. From democracy. Now, how Michigan judge has closed the case against a fifteen year old African, American student who had been sent to a juvenile jail and may after she failed to finish her schoolwork online, the girl who's known simply as grace was released from custody in July and it's now been removed from probation now this. I mean this stories couple weeks old and there was a domestic. Dispute Situation. The cops had been there many many times she'd been removed from the home before she and her mother came to blows and that's how amy presents it. Do, we know it's the same story. That is that is the exact story. Not that it's all just can't believe that ran yesterday and they're still they still haven't. They won't report what actually happened is just another orange. Saying, they won't report what happened. What? Want to get to two vaccines but I this was surprising. This is a healthcare professional doctor cheese triple boards An hands on physician in Florida and she was asked what I have to say mine qualify as a great question. Because I have not heard it asked. What exactly does the CDC recommend when someone shows up at your office and they have cove it Have, you heard anyone ask her answer that question? But how would you know that so much has co Vid when they show up at your office, well when they've been tested. Do you know what are you telling me? What the kids somebody is fantastic shown to be positive in this show up at work. Now they show up. No they show up at your doctor's office and say, okay, been tested positive and I have I have my symptoms. Okay. So what CDC recommends? Recommend you throw them into the street. What is the folks home? No idea close recommendation by the at the A. To doctors. What is it? You were being told if you're patient. Tests. Positive. Here is what we're recommending you do let's say literally nothing I know of. Stay home in isolation for two weeks and then potentially either retested again or even that is money and I think one of the biggest points throughout this is people have becomes so fear based because of the the fearmongering mainstream media that most people are living in their amid allows US resilient and. As part of our brain and when you do that critical thinking is out the window. So people are not they've lost critical thinking they're reacting with this immediate response from programming. So for me, it's look at medicine it is not black and white. It is the art of then it's the practice of medicine because we look at all kinds of things to come up with a program she went into how she'll study. She'll go buy some books. It looks as some stuff online depending on what ailment comes along that it's not just like, Oh, you're here with that boom, you get this in fact, there's no recommendation from CDC or FDA go home and self quarantine. Isn't that exactly when you should be taking something maybe some. Zinc and something.

New Looney Tunes Series Hits HBO Max, With New Music
"Bugs Bunny is back white BJ Wiedemann, who does her theme music, The West Go a weapon in his pal Start anew. Looney Tune Siri's on HBO, Max. And it wouldn't be loony tunes with that loony tunes. The soundtrack album for the New Syriza's Out, Tim Grieving has the story. The new Looney Tunes still opens with that theme. They wouldn't dare change that, but everything that follows needed a new composer. There was certainly intimidating. Joshua Moshier is one of two composers for the new Looney Tunes. I Come at this from jazz background, and when you learn to play that music, you just embody the language of these musicians that you look up to. And so I really approached Carl stalling the same way Carl Stalling was the big goon of cartoon scoring. He started with silly symphonies at Disney, but he made his name a Warner brothers starting in the 19 thirties, where he scored more than 700 cartoons. Stalling applied. The same techniques had learned as an organist accompanying silent films reacting and improvising toe onscreen antics and using existing classical pieces and popular Theo Orchestra runs upstairs tiptoes and gets bonked on the head along with the characters no matter what you anyway, Don't you even know I already have one. John Powell is the Oscar nominated composer of animated features like How to Train Your Dragon and Kung Fu Panda, Even though he's not part of the new Looney Tunes. He feels Carl Stallings influence so strongly that he uses a sort of Richter scale with directors that he calls the stalling number, You know. So if you say Okay, we only need a story number of two here. That basically means, you know, Tone it down. Don't hit things don't don't go for the musical juggler Calm down, but if madness and shoes in the cartoon world Why not have fun with it? So new Looney Tunes composer Joshua Moshe had some acne sized shoes to fill, and even though he's never scored a show like this before He's actually been preparing for a while. I was always experimenting with how could I do a Carl stalling kind of sound on my own, even going back to college, and I had some experiments that I found on old hard drive said. I threw together on a riel motion submitted that really in an open casting call and got the job. He recorded a full orchestra on the Warner Brothers lot for the 1st 2 cartoons, and for the rest, he had a chamber ensemble of six players at Capitol Studios. There's cartoons like the road runner. And the coyote where there's no dialogue, except for a few minutes. The first time I worked on with those It just looked like this big blank slate. But you realize oh, the dialogue is the music the coyote. His dialogue is below meandering soon. Road Runner, you know, we reference the classical piece dance of the comedians. Joshua motion has infused HBO Max's new Looney tunes with Carl stalling spirit and added some twists of his own like bebop, but the main thing he carried over from stalling Writing seriously funny music. What's so great about Looney Tunes is that they are caricatures, and it allows the music to be a caricature. It's just such a joy to me to participate. In the comedy in an overt way and be part of what's making people laugh. That's all folks for

A simple merchant like his father and his grandfather before him Cho- may have thought of himself as a merchant but it would be hard to describe his lifestyle as simple by his own admission bog. Joe Owned Property in both Afghanistan and Pakistan more than one person described his home in Afghanistan as a castle with a column lined. Main residence a guesthouse. Electricity and running water luxurious accommodations. Compared to his neighbors most people in bog chose. Providence earned a living by farming raising livestock or trading in lumber bog chose spent his days pudding together. Heroin deals in two thousand six his operation produced and sold over one hundred and twenty thousand kilograms of heroin about twenty percent of the world's total heroin supply that year in a single year bogged show earned two hundred and fifty million dollars making him one of the world's richest people and one of the world's poorest countries. The question is how did he get there? It's a difficult question to answer. Thanks to Afghanistan's chaotic past. Most of bog chose life is a complete mystery until the nineteen nineties when his international heroin operation seemed to emerge from the dust fully formed. But a little bit of history can help us fill in the blanks. Joe was born in nineteen forty two in the Non Gerhard province of eastern Afghanistan later in life bog show earned the title. Haji which is an honorific given to Muslims who have completed the pilgrimage to Mecca when bog show was growing up. Afghanistan was locked in a struggle between urban elites who wanted to modernize the country and rural tribal groups who preferred to keep their traditional ways of life in Nangahar bog. Cho- lived among a fiercely independent tribal community that resisted any intrusion. Bog Show called his people frontier. People the Western press had called the area ungovernable comparing it to the wild west militant groups from al-Qaeda to the Taliban to Aycell have all found refuge. Nangahar is remote mountains and complex cave systems in nineteen forty-five when bog show was just three years. Old Afghantistan banned opium production. As part of the government's modernization efforts after World War. Two new diplomatic relationships were forming around the globe and Afghanistan. DidN'T WANT TO BE LEFT BEHIND. The ban would show the world that Afghanistan was willing to comply with Western norms including drug control regulations but harvesting poppies was a part of daily life. In rural Afghanistan. Peasants made cooking oil from poppy seeds. They burn the flower. Stocks is firewood. They made soap from the Ash and the harvested opium from the flowers for us as a medicine. Banning opium was seen as a tone deaf insult to their traditions. The law was largely ignored as long as the government could point to the opium Ban as a talking point. They didn't bother actually enforcing it. Neighboring countries like Pakistan India and Iran all pass stricter opium bands over the next few decades and they took their regulations seriously as a result opium smuggling out of Afghanistan skyrocketed in the nineteen sixties. By the time bog Joe was in his early twenties. In the mid sixties drug trafficking rings had sprung up all along the border smuggling was so pervasive. It was hardly seen as illegal or immoral years later. After bogged Joe was arrested. His younger brother admitted he was a smuggler. That's true everyone in our area is Boncho came from a relatively well off family. He inherited property from his father. Who was a wooden merchant and used it to start several businesses gas stations. An electronics store an auto import company. But at some point he turned his focus to drug smuggling perhaps he saw it as a business opportunity to lucrative to pass up. He was right about that. It was a lucrative industry and completely resistant to political turmoil. Things didn't slow down at all when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in nineteen seventy nine. The Soviet invasion was meant to reinforce Afghanistan's new communist government which had won control in a coup the previous year Afghan rebel fighters who call themselves the mujahideen violently resisted the new communist government and the Soviet Army. The war devastated the country. Soviet troops targeted rural farmers burning fields and destroying irrigation canals but poppies were durable crop. They kept flourishing even in the midst of war so thousands of farmers switch their crop of choice to poppy flowers. Opium production increased exponentially and drug traffickers. Had A rebel army ready and willing to protect them Mujahideen. Commanders forged an alliance with drug traffickers including Haji bog show the invested money and resources into smuggling operations and in return smugglers gave the mujahedeen cut of their profits which they used to fund their fight against the Communists then Mujuhedeen funding source to the United States. Government almost immediately after the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. The C. I. A. began secretly arming and financing the rebel forces in their fight against communism the US was willing to ignore the fact that some of those funds and guns were making their way to drug traders. The increasing flow of drugs was actually a bonus hero and started falling into the hands of the Soviet troops. Soon enough the Soviets were busy shooting up. Instead of spreading the red menace of communism a decade after their invasion the Soviets decided the war was too costly to maintain. They finally withdrew from Afghanistan in nineteen eighty nine but by then an entire drug industry had blossomed from the burnt fields. Relationships had been made trafficking routes had been established and huge opium bazaars had sprung up throughout the country in the early nineteen eighties. One of these opium markets opened in Gani Kill about twenty miles from the city of Jalalabad. It's sprawled across several blocks like a giant flea market with over five hundred dusty shops and booze but instead of selling antiques and goods merchants here sold opium. Throngs of people pushed their way through the bazaar every day among them was Haji bogged show by the end of the Soviet war in nineteen eighty nine bog. Show was nearly fifty years old. And one of Afghanistan's richest drug smugglers. Although he wasn't yet making the nine figure deals he would later be known for some of Bug chose contemporaries were notorious for their decadent lifestyles infamous Afghan kingpin. Haji Khan was known for his extravagant alcohol. Fueled parties a big taboo in a traditionally Muslim country. But bonk showed didn't have that reputation. He was a family man. He had six brothers two wives and sixteen children. He ran his drug operation like any other family. Business is brother. Bandeau oversaw drug labs where chemist manufactured heroin from opium paste. Bog chose son. Soochow Goule handled the money and recordkeeping bogged show employed about two hundred fifty workers. Even if they weren't blood related bog show wanted them all to feel like they were part of the family. He kept them close. Both emotionally and physically. Most of his servants lived full time on his family's compound bog. Joe Even built a house right next to his own for his top chemist farm on Shah bog chose favorite servant. Cari later said I was not his real son but when it came to food clothes and other things I was treated the same. As his son's bag show was a hands on manager he visited bazaars personally to ensure the opium he purchased was top quality. He then sent the opium to his drug labs which were nestled high in the mountains of Nangarhar thousands of feet above ground level once the chemist extracted heroin from the opium. The drugs were brought to bog chose compound where bog show directed his workers to wrap it in. Plastic stamped with bog chose signature seal to his clients. That seal meant that they were getting the best. Most of the heroin was loaded into trucks and smuggled into Pakistan bog show regularly met with Afghan police and Border Patrol officials for a price. He could make sure that none of his couriers ever ran into any trouble as they moved. Caravans of heroin across Afghanistan's route a one for smaller orders. Bod Show had an even more careful strategy. The couriers wouldn't eat for days. Before their task. Their work required empty stomachs. The heroine was put into capsules and when the time came they swallowed them washing them down with glasses of milk in the early nineteen nineties by. Chou built a second home base in Pakistan. He had dual citizenship which wasn't uncommon. The line between the countries was seen as arbitrary among the tribal communities who traded freely and spoke a common language this second home by Joe and his family a place to escape the new wave of violence and disorder. That was already sweeping across Afghanistan.

Regrets About My Relationship With My Twin Brother
"What are your biggest regret? Steve who boy one thing that I don't talk about a lot is that I was a twin When you're born into a twin ship it's a special thing like. I banged my head on the crib. Certain number of times and Mike bunked Bonk Bonk Bonk. Bonk who drive my parents crazy. It's true when we walked to school as kindergarteners. We walked literally shoulder to shoulder leaning into one another on the way to school. That's how we move through the world and what I realized this we got a little bit older was that he was keeping a secret from me. Actually I didn't consciously realize but I knew that he was retreating and withdrawing into a kind of private world that I wasn't a part of I dealt with that by feeling incredible anxiety and confusion. Remember him going to sleep over at a friend's house for the first time and I literally in my body was like I couldn't sleep. I was asked by anxiety. It was like my God. My other half is gone at any rate I could tell without. He's he's moving away from me. We were drifting and I couldn't reach him and I came to realize much later in my. I mean you know when we were in college that he was struggling with realizing that he was gay. And coming out of the closet and a very macho household that for all the psychological insight that everybody had there wasn't a lot of emotional communication And I told you the story of when he came out to me and how utterly shocked I was. I literally thought that he was fooling around with my girlfriend. That's how out of it and I can even remember visiting him at college and he had a photo of maybe his boyfriend and him sort of scantily clad and I remember it was by his bed and he put the photo face down and he looked. He didn't look at me. Just said you're not ready to see this. And what's right about that? Maybe I hope not but maybe he was as you counter that state honestly part of what the regret is bound up in was the recognition that he was in. This is so absurd. I mean this is what pisses me off. He was ashamed about something. He shouldn't have been ashamed and I was wrapped up in that as well in other words I was reading off of. I better not intrude because this person is already in retreat from me and I'm just going to say enough that I don't scare them off anymore and the image. That comes to mind when I try to really interrogate. Why didn't say Moore why I didn't say how is that are you? Okay is sort of like we used to be too little fawns or something. Who Just did everything together? We're bounding through forest and pasture together and then when he was letting me know. I'm gay in these very small an elliptical ways. It was as if if I move towards the middle he would startle and go running back into the woods. And the the shame of it is that there weren't any woods. It's nothing to be ashamed of. You love who you love. And that's very clear to me sitting here at fifty one but at twenty one or nineteen however old we were what I was picking up on. He doesn't feel safe sharing this part of his life with me and if I try to do too much if I knocked my head on the crib he's not gonNA knock back and now I can look back at than say my God you dope. You needed to be there for him. This was a time you could have come through for him and I think maybe the central regret of my life is that I've never been able to go back to that twin ship and I have not come through for him and I have not been there in the way that a that a brother should be there. And that's something that you carry and I I should say tune but I don't but to me the hopeful thing about that is. The story isn't over yet. Your that your brother's still there and you're still here and so much of the mistakes we made in the past can be remade. Yeah as you always say you can make that bad story into a good one and maybe even more powerfully so this break between you and your twin could be mended and you're stronger for it because you're brave enough to say. How do we use this as a way to be intimate again? The risk of doing that is one that you admit what you've done wrong right so you have an MBA by you. I mean me now I have failed how I have failed him but regret operates that way. It's like a one way mirror onto our mistakes and our

It says quote as the speaker and the Underside Council have confirmed the committee's investigation is part of that house impeachment inquiry and although I you know I just said I think I was getting this from one of the media news articles I read that this is the first time I actually remember for in the original filing and in another response to the DOJ as well when they originally filed the lawsuit the DOJ filed you know judiciary when they originally thought a lawsuit yeah one of the judiciary initially the house stems in the judiciary filed a lawsuit the DOJ objected in and then the house right to that objection they said in that response that that this is part of the broader impeachment inquiry and I remember in the hearing when they said that the judge it to the house counsel I think it was Doug letter I thought this was just Ukraine he's like nope is Pelosi they said Pelosi was an agreement without he says Yep Yep she signed off on all the this and so now it's appearing again so I think this is the second time we've actually heard this I could be wrong but that's just my memory was job as I read that line and felt like it wasn't true so let me know if I'm if I'm wrong but although the Department of Justice again argues it's this I'm I'm back to reading the from the from the actual filing as the dog Barks Doug has beef my or doesn't and she's Pod Z.. Species probably or cat products these pod cat meow beef meat so like here let me just back up a little bit. So I can get this Read to you properly as as the speaker and the Underside Council have confirmed the committee's investigation is part of the houses impeachment inquiry although the Department of Justice again argues based solely on a Washington Post article that the judiciary committee's inquiry into these issues is secondary to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Ukraine inquiry the Department of Justice motion from Monday at six that connection lacks merit for all the reasons stated above so that was the argument that the house stems or the yeah the judiciary put ah they're filing the Department of Justice Filing and then breaking Tuesday afternoon this just broke the DC circuit court has paused judge Barrel House order until November fifth now they say in the order this is not granting the stay it's having the circuit court have a couple of extra days as to consider the stay that because DOJ wants them to stay for appeal they says quote the purpose of this administrative stay administrative state is to give the sufficient opportunity to consider the emergency motion for stay pending appeal and should not be construed in any way as a ruling on the merits of the motion so it's an emergency stay in anticipation Donovan emergent earn argument for an emergency stay it's an administrative stay so they can have a minute to read the emergency motion and that's what we went over yesterday the four things that they were trying to prove that you know irreparable harm and and all that doesn't do harm to the judiciary and like I pretty we tore apart every agreement but I felt like maybe they would issue the stay anyway grant the stanway well these three judges have come back to say we need until November fifth the oddly the first day of Roger Stone's trial too really read your bullshit filing and and consider it the APP elise have until November first to file responses to the motion and replies we do know vendor fifth that's when they're gonNA think do something move on this also I I didn't see any reporting on this but I noticed there were three judges named on this and this is the appeals court that made this administrative stage meant and so I'm assuming these three judges are the ones that are going to hear the appeal and They are Cornelia pillared Patricia Millet and Judge Robert Wilkins all three of them are Obama appointees is yet so I get it I'm getting a lot of tweets like judges don't matter it no Obama judges no Clinton judges no Bush judges no it's these are judges yes I agree I agree with that sentiment problem is when you get a trump judge in there yeah they're not if it were anybody out like Yeah Judge Leon Who's hearing the other case that we talk about right he's GW appointee Everybody the only one judge in all of these like five or six appeals court cases where trump the only judge that dissented was judged row and that was a trump appointee and that she still lost the case and even in her dissent she said these materials are appropriate for impeachment so yeah terminal and tease in general I would say just an entirely different subject than Bush appointees any of them yeah we're going to have to start counting our years it's like. At after trump everything just changes after that enzyme different I never cared who appointed judges in till Castro started appointing judges right that's it that's the only time I've ever cared I've trusted had full faith in the judiciary in no matter who appointed him back Carter Reagan Gw Papa Bush what's an impossible. yeah pappy Bush yeah well it's because like all the other Republicans I mean let's say they see this pierce toll of justice that they're like conceivably I guess I could show my way in there was some pigs we're gonNA benefit me and all of my cronies but I'm just going to let that that glimmer of light go on whereas trump is like a fucking moth that season flocks bryson open and shoves his fucking gross status inside all of his appointees you or just hits the window over and over again yeah also that both yeah if you hit enough time shield you'll get through the whole said the sperm said the sperm is that a whole thing no just makes us okay I mean it's really just like that is what permed news just knock into the and that is evidence why why men get somewhat shit for being delayed and it's such a great representation of what it's like to identify as a female versus a man Jif where ladies just sitting there to bunch of hot dogs correct yeah like men are going like knock knock but with their head are you do when you're cuddling you're like ooh no you know just blunt force trauma over I making their way through life poking ladies shocking not all men and also but sometimes I like it yeah I mean you can't help it if out of fundamental level as a

aware enough to know like maybe they're not taking the pain new swims off or really in the uterus uterus worthy out to dinner maybe have some Nice conversation I cook arose Liu so sex education I'm sure there you go now you know or daily beans yeah sorry so sorry I liked the alliteration the judges to pillared millet and Wilkins pillared Millet Wilkins Nice thank him and speaking to the judge the judge and the Kupperman case that's the one the GW appointee named Leon has fast tracked the fuck out of this hearing so basically Kupperman is number two deputy too Bolton and he was supposed to testify Monday but didn't show up and chef was like that you know that you could be in contempt and he was he was upset about that and I was like Abbott this might be kind of a cool thing but maybe not because he filed a lawsuit not against anyone just petitioned the court to tell him you tell me I've got the three branches of government wants telling me one thing ones telling me other thing I need a tiebreaker because Congress is subpoenaed me the executive trump White House is telling me I can't testify so judicial branch Gimme the third give me your opinion and so according to this court order that Judge Leon released today and as I said he's the GW judge presiding over the case has ordered the arguments to be heard this Thursday citing time is of the of the essence fast business case and this is the kind of fast track that an impeachment inquiry can give to to one of these cases yeah there seems to be some confusion about an appeals process dragging this out on social media Kupperman is not doing anyone like I said he's just petitioning the court to order him to either listen to Congress or listen to the White House so once there's a decision he likely wouldn't appeal his own case he would just take the dishes Asian and go home and say and then decide you know and do what he was the judge told him to do but two things the White House can file an injunction as an interesting party and appeal that all the way up to Scotus if they don't like the decision or maybe this is a delay play and if the judge rules in favor of Congress may be Opperman would appeal his own shit and sent his own shit up to Scotus you know asking for stays on the subpoena all the way up because he mm-hmm and Bolton Cheryl lawyer and while Bolton hates trump I doubt he would love to testify and I don't know which is which here and I also don't know if you I don't have a defendant if you can appeal your decision but certainly if there was some sort of you know an agreement between the house Kupperman and Bolton and they would say aren't you file a lawsuit and then we'll file an injunction and then we'll be able to take this Delay Delay Delay Yeah what is not right now Manono I wonder 'cause I'm just thinking I wonder like what interests he still possibly beholden to you know if he's like going the the maybe if he wants to get into a future Republican Administration hopefully of which there are zero he knew forever forever for the good run Republicans you've done yeah he would have to you know take this more cautiously But either way I think this argument is moot because in that more grand jury materials filing the House made clear that Muller Muller stuff is very much a part of this impeachment inquiry and that is in the appeals process and could take Turley twenty twenty unless of course this Thursday vote pushes it faster at night gives more the hence the Bolton question to be resolved although I'll also with a resolution vote I sat on Thursday all of these appeals could be fast tracked like Hsun extract me rockets to them not to mention the resolution vote takes care of the this isn't a real impeachment argument it's only impeachment of it comes from the impeachment region of France though it might not resolve the constitutional blanket immunity isn't real argument Because I mean if they if they say you know go you know it tells him to testify he can then testify but if the if trump thousand injunction to you know to rehear the question on constant just a matter disabling all of trump's defenses for his obstructive behaviour that's that's what just every single thing and it's very if you get those all laid out and agreed upon then you don't really have shit to say anymore and the only thing they're going to be bitching about socrates who were bitch impeachable offense and then if you get the molar grand jury material in there and it proves that trump lied that takes that argument away because that's what Clinton was impeached for race or questioning I wish that they put in the rules you're not allowed to attack the people that are coming in and answering questions for being part of the deep state I wish.

"When you subscribe all right so yesterday and this is what you were getting out Jordan we heard reports that Sunlen was on Capitol Hill Monday reviewing the transcript of his testimony I tweeted I thought he was revising his bullshit testimony and we called him out for perjury on October Twenty first on twitter Joaquin Castro tweeted yesterday that he believes Sunlen committed perjury I'm certain that this Monday he was reviewing to amend his testimony they're still no public statements from Sunlen or his lawyers on this and we haven't heard anything further about it there seemed to be some confirmation tweets going around out there saying that he is amending his testimony on Wall Street Journal did a report over the weekend which we already talked about on a previous show that he is saying there was a quid pro quo but I don't know if he said that in his original testimony or if he's amending his current testimony to say that but the problem with his current testimony that I can see is when he said nobody told me about their misgivings hill or others Bolton Hiller others no one told me and they did and apparently and I I don't have confirmation on this yet this is just sourced loosely sourced Lieutenant Colonel Vitamin has documents and memorandum's of those interactions as does hill and built it you're so are we going to have the admin five Komi I'd already pushed out but he's the he's left he's in there I think to Morrison still works there to yeah I'd love to know what that process looks like when Congress is like asking that like do they ask him to come in and amend his testimony or does he have a revelation on his own that's like oh she had an this is coming out I should go in and Calero fly would I have said well maybe because McCabe if you remember when asked if he had told public relations of the FBI the Wall Street Journal story he was just being elevated to acting director of the FBI and he was like no no I don't believe I did and then he contacted them night to say and this was inspector general this wasn't you know under oath Congress or anything but he called them and said Hey I have an amendment yeah oh I think this might have been initiated by him and his lawyers lawyer his lawyer probably said hey you're gonna WanNa could not come in and they don't want to go back and talk to him he I think if you were recalled the test fi again we would know there would be on it'd be on the deposition calendar but that is a possibility that he was called back to testify or maybe they like asking for clarification or something on something and the only way to do that is to go in Yup yeah I I asked him you have to do it face to face raise your right hand and all that other stuff maybe not you probably do via satellite but it it's just it's so clear to me that that's what he's doing and especially with his lawyer coming out over the weekend saying yeah there was a quid pro quo and whether or not we're fixing that with Congress or we haven't yet we plan to it's just a good idea and also I don't know if you can claw back I don't know if he if if that if you're still guilty of perjury if they go or you know maybe they you know you're guilty of perjury and they could make a criminal referral maybe you get a lighter sentence because you amended your testimony you came clean not sure yeah how that works I mean the way his original statement was laid out was preteens to the word nobody this person this person and the buddy re-lane locked himself or later lie box yeah there yeah yeah he did put himself into public box yes a private deposition MHM but yeah I I do expect to be hearing about it either an amended testimony or a criminal referral sooner both again I don't know if amending your testimony helps your perjury charge or your criminal referral it could be a situation where shift brings him in and says tell me the whole effing truth and I won't yeah a criminal referral not that you know I mean not that it would do much if your criminal referring them to bar but bar at this point could be like I have to either recuse myself because I mentioned in this in this investigation I'm he shouldn't be overseeing it and how stems of asked him to recuse himself from it so that when they make criminal referral somebody else would be making that decision but that could be Brian Pinch Hausky another trump loyalist or it could be Rosen Jeffrey Rosen has another douchebag so like whoever it is it's kind of fun anyway and it's not like they don't get together at night yeah smoke cigars and jerk each other off and say we're not died I'm right right well whatever they did with McCabe they should also do to Sunlen then because if McCabe got lack of candor for what sounds like a similar thing just empirically in terms of going in amending your testimony the same rules should apply to Sunland then at least it's nuts us too busy travel in the world dude yeah gotTa Use Mary Kate Nationally Adventure Somme myself and my two consciences just going around undeserved accumulating on somebody tweeted Time I see a picture in every photo of Mary Kate Nationally Olson one of them looks like they know what day you'll die and like I know how you'll die so oh any picture of current Mary Kate Nationally Olsen and look at one of them knows the day you die one of them knows how you die that's interesting and it's funny looked at so many pictures I'm like Yep nope Yup Yup one of them has the big eyes and the other one's like oh I know it all just amounts to one word and that his gaunt they last so gone tear when Sheikh one step further is fashioned suicide ask gone to something bird is not going for him and you can say it's the thing that goes were you well Calvin Klein loves it yeah we really Oh back in the ninety s he did a Calvin Klein thing no no no Oh okay gone Oh God sorry for racking my brain for some like black and white William Bar Calvin Klein ad I'm really glad does not exist now somebody please make a bill bar Calvin Klein out if you if you would and tweeted to at daily beast pod and tag at Jordan's confused she's going to need to see it yeah that's how trump incentivized him to get the job he's like look man I will make your modeling career below grade track record with models I have so Mary you oh that's what he said Oh did he now I'm just getting okay I believe anything from that time period I was I was missing in action anyway son lied and we tweeted out October twenty I soon as Bill Taylor testified lock them up we'll see what happens again like I said I don't know if you can take it back that would be an interesting I'm sure the answer is pretty easily legal yeah well I mean if him not taking back would work against the truth finding mission than that would be bad obviously right so I imagine congress's more than welcome to open their doors him yeah because then you can also hit him with obstruction yes double win then so maybe instead of getting a thousand one perjury and obstruction he can just get the awesome one and then maybe if he helps extra he can get a lighter sentence yeah if they even investigate it yeah so vote let's see here what else is going on The text for the House impeachment resolution has been released so this seems there seems to be confusion over whether this vote which is on Thursday about just rules like just setting up rules or if Pelosi is giving in to gop demands including impeachment resolution official impeachment resolution in the document if it were only the rules I don't think you need a full House vote we voted on committee rules in the judiciary back in September and so but the guage in her letter to the Dem Caucus isn't clear either she it's it's not real clear here let me read for you she says this week we will bring a resolution to the floor that affirms the ongoing existing investigation that is currently being conducted by our committees as part of this impeachment inquiry including all requests for documents subpoenas for records and testimony and any other investigative steps previously taken or to be taken as part of this investigation this resolution establishes the procedure for hearing that hearings that are open to the American public it authorizes the disclosure of deposition transcripts it outlines procedures to transfer evidence to the Judiciary Committee as consider articles of impeachment and sets forth due process rights for the president and his team we are taking this step to eliminate any doubt as to whether the trump administration to me withhold documents prevent witness testimony disregard duly authorized subpoenas or continue obstructing the House of Representatives so there's no this as an impeachment resolution as much as here's the rules but the fact that she's having a full House vote sort of carries with it implied impeachment resolution yeah I like best she said this impeachment as if others already existing this one maybe we'll have one in the future depending on this success of this and that and that would probably a lot of weight with it I wondering because it kind of defines the difference between whether they're now starting an impeachment resolution no she's indicating it's already going on here's the new rules and I feel like she's kind of having your cake and eaten at two in a real kind of cool clever political way by not saying impeachment resolute Asian starts now impeachment starts now voting to start impeachment now yeah instead saying this is regarding the current impeachment investigation that's happening here's the new rule the public facing shit and I'm doing it on the full house so that sort of imply without directly saying yes the reporting that I heard today NPR so that it's GonNa go through rules committee first and then it's going to a full House vote so I don't know if that it makes it you know versus something else but yeah but either way it sounds good to me it also sounds like it lays the groundwork for the hearings should become public right yet that's they're going to talk about the rules for doc hearings specifically saying forty five minutes on each side by either one member or a lawyer so I think they're trying to Mitt that five minutes a piece gap which I love Republicans won't get a lawyer because no lawyer I imagine would ever sign onto their line of questioning there you know trump's talking point they will release the transcripts of all the closed door depositions nice I'm sure they'll be already happened or that will happen looking been blocked from all this or that you know you're only Cherry pick released cherry picking releasing what's good for the dams and not you know what's good for the Republicans like like if they didn't have anything they wouldn't of all the depositions from behind closed doors surely scrubbed for classified information if there is any there just doesn't seem to be which is why the call shouldn't have been put in super counterintelligence environment communications environment for Super Top secret classified highly classified Shit.

That's his job what's American Policy when Bill Taylor testified to those two you know policy things that were going on the regular in the irregular channel the irregular was not in support of Ukraine and that was the problem so you're supposed to be that's your job and it probably helps if you speak Ukrainian he said he reported his concerns to the NFC lead counsel he said he is not the whistle blower he clarified that and also today seen going down in an elevator to the skit going to be able to see those transcripts soon and.

the White House currently and was on the call he has firsthand knowledge of the call it's note that takes away trump's hearsay argument right he reported concerns twice probably to Isenburg Isenburg I believe is the counsel General Counsel for the National Security council he's the lawyer okay so we to concerns I is that trump's point man on Ukraine in Sunland Ambassador Sunland demanded they opened investigations Ukraine opened investigations into Biden and the two thousand sixteen election in that Explosive July tenth Bolton me eating that everybody seems to be testifying about and then when he heard the president made the same demand on the call he also Oh expressed concern so twice he went to his superiors to say problems I've problems so during that July tenth meeting Lieutenant Colonel Oldman says ambassador Sunland started to speak about Ukraine delivering specific investigations in order to secure the meeting with the president at which time and Bolton cut the meeting short he got mad real mad he confronted Sunlen this is Lieutenant Colonel Von Confronted Sunlen saying Ambassador Sunland emphasize the importance that Ukraine deliver the investigations of the two thousand sixteen elections the Biden's and Barack Obama I stated to Ambassador Sunland that his statements were inappropriate confronted him right down to the depths not that's sketch yet sunland in his testimony said something totally different I know he did he said no one raised any concerns with me and we'll talk about that a little bit old later because he was on Capitol Hill yesterday on Monday to review his bullshit testimony so that's fat that's fascinating so anyway let's see her lieutenant colonel von men and Fiona Hill reported their concerns to the NFC lead counsel which like I said believe his Eisenberg but not directly contradicts as you said what Sunland said two weeks ago where he said quote and I'm quoting him here if Bolton Hill or others harbored any misgivings about the propriety of what we were doing they never shared those misgivings with me then or later that is a complete and total lie there's no way out of the that lie because he says if Bolton Hill or others he might he might have been able to protect himself if he just said no one told me anything but didn't name any names I pretty much no one in the world told him then or later that they had any misgivings about what they were doing yeah and on CNN today I think they had today would have been Tuesday they had side by side of the a couple of the points that vitamin made right and then versus Sunland oh yeah and they just directly contradict each other like in one of the the quote that you just said no one ever told me anything and then WTN's testimony says that after the call because it short like he just said and then hill comes in starts reprimanding them for how inappropriate all of that was and that's how hill testified to it as well yeah she said what she would help back a minute MHM on the way into the meeting and then of course Bolton told Hill to tell the lawyer and also lieutenant elven woman who said to Sunlen and Bolton this is messed up and that's this is just a July tenth meeting right this isn't even the phone call so he was both at the July meeting and on the July twenty fifth call and anyway that is a total lie by Sunlen like no way out of it lie dead to rights and Lieutenant Colonel Vitamins testimony that he raised concerns about the meeting which hill and Bill Taylor both testified to like there's just so many people corroborate reading and Sunderland is you know the the standalone like no one told me and then everyone's testifying told you a week standard onto one be made a cement or something but he's just like a wet way frey lady finger wispy taste ladies just crumbling snow lady shaming no finger shaming yeah no lady finger shaming yeah they are delicious they are ladies ooh and that okay that I was talking about the Italian dessert but good on Ya yes positive here he has just don't lie we do just be truthful sensual and everything we find desert finger blasting just don't lie go that's a shirt he says Lieutenant Kelvin says he's reporting this to the congress out of a sense of duty he brings that up a lot of sense of duty that's the kind of Patriot he is he's an American I mean he's an immigrant we'll get more into that later because that comes into where his criticism from the right is coming from so he's born in the Soviet occupied Ukraine his family fled when he was three years old and went to Italy for a minute his mom died with his and his him and his twin brother came here and when he was three so like basically the American dream now he's a decorated war veteran but that has not stopped the Jeff before I mean if we think about like I said I was Oh my God I can't believe they're saying this about an active duty Army lieutenant colonel with a purple heart who's walking around with shrapnel from an IUD Iraq. And but I shouldn't have been surprised I mean if you think about McCain do you think about when they to tried to discredit Muller and smear his character you know he's also a purple heart but Vietnam yes let it not be lost it's an effort led by Captain Bone Spurs yes and Sean Duffy and Matt Gaetz Jim Jordan none of them have served not that you have to serve have an opinion on this but if you're going to to try to tear down a war hero probably best that you didn't get five medical deferments for a fake foot Rahmam so these are appalling attack axe they're calling him on Laura Ingraham last night as soon as the the testimony earthers opening statement was released Laura Ingram said and one of her ask you I think his name was he worked on the torture papers he was a lawyer in the torture papers and now UC Berkeley Law Professor I believe he uh he said espionage he said this is probably a double agent my God and and that just blows my mind like what a long con to move here when you're three grow up become Joined the army twenty years ago also that you can get nominated or you know work on trump's national security council so that you can out him like that is just the craziest thing I've ever heard I can't string together full sentences at three years old but I can craft a narrative my brain and I will seek revenge incorrupt Ukrainian government sent me here toddler to undermine the future of the United States and you know maybe they're saying that like after join the military was already and then he was recruited later but but still and they were they were like trying to insult him by saying he he speaks fluent Ukrainian and he was advising Ukrainians about how to deal with Giuliani that's his job that's his job a my my dad who was born in Cleveland spoke fluent Russian he took Russia in college I don't know why but he spoke Russian and so he was used by the Air Force Yeah in in intelligence to you know enduring Vietnam to translate Russian messages but what happened when he was three edgy well see you can't even come off with one because it's ridiculous it's so insane I heard a guy on Fox News I was saying he was like look I was you know I'm an Irish descendant of Irish immigrants and I understand that maybe he just has loyalty to the countries that he came from and that's what explains all of this it's like first off you cannot compare the plight of Irish people today compared to the plight of Ukrainians today under Soviet under Soviet rule in the context of I I mean I know I know that there are similarities between you know striving for independence and what that looks like tree and people are actually dying in your army currently yeah it's not the same and all that aside so what we're supposed to be allies of Ukraine are relationship with Ukraine is very important you don't want to appoint an adviser on Ukraine or Ukraine expert who hates Ukraine and loves Russia that would be a really bad person to put in that job because American US policy is and has been for a long time since the Cold War to back Ukraine to protect to protect them yeah Russian influence in in a bipartisan way yes absolutely and that's where these diplomats have been doing for their whole lives Bill Taylor and Mashi Ivanovich etc the woman RNC who was trying to say you can't change the language and ease up on Russia we have to give lethal weapons to Ukraine they want.

"Four gronk got bombed rob gronkowski New England. Patriots tight end says he got hit in the face by a can of beer thrown during Tuesday Super Bowl victory. Parading through the streets of Boston.
