How Ami Horowitz Got Into the Business of 'Gonzo Journalism'

"Let's start at the beginning army for those who haven't caught our previous discussions here in America first. How did you get into the business of gonzo journalism? You know, it started with, I used to be an investment banker. I don't embarrass. And those kind of odd, what investment bank would hire ami Horowitz? I know it's weird. Wild, wacky stuff. What can I tell you? I worked on Lehman Brothers. So that goes to show you what they know. And one day I was actually watching a Michael Moore film bowling for Columbine and first I have seen it before. What were your politics at this point? What were you a politics army? Similar as today. My mother and my father raised me as a very serious patriot to always love this country and always defend the values of this country. That had never changed. But when I was watching this movie, boys were called by by Michael Moore, I was thinking about the United Nations and how screwed up the UN is, how it's really failed its mission around the world to protect people. And I was thinking, how do I get this message across? I was just kind of thinking about it and obsessing about it. And I looked over at the screen, I saw Michael Moore's movie as different as his politics are for mine. I realized that this was a very, very good medium. This idea of a dark documentary, a comically dark documentary, shot on location, where you can expose a particular issue. And I thought, this is my mission in life. I literally, this is a Saturday night. One day I quit my job, said, and I said, I'm going to raise money and make this movie raise several $1 million. We made this movie shot her around the world and it was a success. It was in 40 theaters around the country. And what was your background in making movies, army? I saw a bunch of movies. Does that count?

Kudos to the Eagles and Chiefs, Headed to the Super Bowl

"Kudos to the NFL Super Bowl bound teams. I'm big matchup underway. Super Bowl, what does that February the 12th, I guess? The eagles headed into Super Bowl 57. Bengals got beat and the Bengals got beat, arguably. Due to a lot of lousy officiating. I always hate it because in another life I used to be a sports official back in the day, many, many years ago, another lifetime ago I used to be a high school basketball and small college basketball official and I was a college baseball umpire. In fact, one of my dearest friends is field and culprit, who's a major league umpire and there's a fraternity among sports officials. There's a camaraderie that's hard to sometimes hard to describe. So I always hurt for officials when I see them screw up, but boy, was there some lousy officiating last night in the Bengals, Kansas City game. Wow. But then, of course, at the end of the game, what a heartbreak that the Bengals wound up really probably losing on an unnecessary roughness penalty. The guy was out of the quarterback or whoever it was was run with the ball out of bounds. And a late hit on the Bengals,

"Be done. Greg eklund was that the chief's Bengals nail biter. 45 yard field goal by kicker Harrison butker with three seconds left in the game gave the Kansas City Chiefs a 23 to 20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, played with a high ankle sprain and attributed his success to the chief's training staff. At the end of the game there, I had to run to get the first down and got us into fill Lorraine. So credit to them. And then just trying to stay on it and we have two more weeks. So we got to keep doing it. The Super Bowl will have a bit of a sibling rivalry, as chiefs tight end Travis Kelce tries to take a Super Bowl from brother Jason, the eagle center. You won't see me talking too much trash because of how much respect on how much I love my brother, but it's definitely going to be a, it's going to be an emotional game. That's for sure.

Danielle D'Souza Gill Talks Prince Harry's New Book 'Spare'

"I'm back with Daniel d'souza gill author of the choice, the abortion divide in America, host of the show counterculture with Danielle d'souza gill. We're talking about the royal family and Harry prince Harry and Meghan Markle. It seems like the focus on these two characters has come mainly because of the Netflix special, which was a kind of revealing, although maybe not revealing in the way they intended interview series of interviews with Harry and Meghan Markle. And also Harry's new book spare, can you first of all, am I right in assuming that the title spare is an implication that Harry is referring to the fact that sort of his brother is the first in line. He's the real deal. He's the legitimate heir and Harry is kind of the spare? I mean, Harry makes some pretty wild accusations in his books fair, which is the only reason that it's apparently the number one selling book in the Guinness World Records beating Obama to sell the most number of copies in the first date was released. And it's not because he decided to share some childhood memories of playing in some kind of field in England. It's because he wanted to really spill a lot of tea on the British family. So some of the main accusations he made were. William and him got into a physical fight, William, you know, through I grabbed him by the collar, threw him on the ground, and he cut his back on a dog bowl. Just Charles, like when he was young, said, oh, Diana, thanks for giving me a spare. Harry's my spare. He makes claims about Camilla, you know, kind of being able stepmother. He makes claims about Kate Middleton, mostly regarding her fights with Meghan, basically how Meghan was the good one and Kate was kind of the dumb one or something. And so he's very into kind of doing these personal jabs at each person, which is why so many people have been intrigued by the book. I have been buying the book because they want to see what's in it.

John Zmirak: If the KKK Had the Money, Joe Biden Would Work For Them

"We're talking about though, John, is this is like what we call a teaching moment in America. We are seeing the results, power corrupts, and the founders understood that that's a biblical view of human nature. And when someone is allowed to be in office for decades, it's very natural that the power increases the corruption increases and you have a guy like Joe Biden who over the decades just by being, you know, your average guy, okay? This is not like he was machiavellian and wicked. But by not being virtuous, you drift into this corruption where now your son is involved and you are on the hook with China and Ukraine. I guess what we're seeing is that the real horror of what it is not to be explicitly virtuous, not to have a view of America that the founders had where it drifts to is not mere mediocrity or some kind of neutral ground. It drifts toward evil and corruption, and that's what we have in this man named Joe Biden in this administration. I mean, you could there are so many funny things you could say. Joe Biden never held a principle that that was opposed to us because he never held a principal at all. He was always for sale to the highest spinner. He was pro segregation in the 70s. He was friends with racist senators. Now he's a 100%, well, if the Ku Klux Klan had the money to bid for Joe Biden, he would go work for them. He would be a spokesman for anyone or anything. He's literally a sock puppet who's gotten kind of dirty and they're going to throw them in the wash and they're going to replace him with another indistinguishable sock puppet, Pamela Harris, the mean lady from the DMV, who slept her way to the middle, and now will find herself floating to the top of the bowl.

The latest in the NFL

"NFL playoffs roundup on Dave fairy. The bills barely avoided an upset, blowing a 17 zero lead in trailing by four before defeating the dolphins. Gene Batali was there. The Buffalo Bills get by the Miami Dolphins in the wild card round by a score of 34 31. Bills quarterback Josh Allen through for 352 yards and three touchdowns, he did have two interceptions as well. We did some good things today. And it's a bad thing today, you know? Some stuff to clean up some things to learn from. But we'll grow from it. It's all all that matters of surviving and advancing. Both Stefan Diggs and Gabe Davis went over a hundred yards receiving. Dolphins had the ball late with a fourth and one at midfield. That's when they took a delay of game penalty. And then on the next play, the dolphins would turn it over on downs. Dolphins quarterback Skylar tops and enjoyed the experience of his first playoff game, but would have liked a different outcome. It was awesome, unfortunately we couldn't come out with a win because I felt like our team fought really, really hard today. You could tell there was no quit. And us and walking into this game, nobody gave us a chance at all. And we had a chance to win it. It took 5 playoff games for the road team to earn a victory as Tom maryam reports. The Giants advanced to the divisional rounds of the NFC playoffs by beating the Vikings 31 24. Quarterback Daniel Jones sparked the Giants offense, throwing for 301 yards and two touchdown passes while running for another 78 yards to lead New York toward its first postseason triumph since Super Bowl 46. I think it's a big win for us, obviously big playoff game. I thought we played well. All three phases and did enough to win the game. Saquon Barkley's second touchdown run of the game, midway through the fourth quarter, provided the margin of victory snapping at 24 24 time. The New York defense held legally to Justin Jefferson to just 47 yards receiving. Kirk Cousins is now one in three in the playoffs. With that lone win being the miracle in Minneapolis three years ago. Extremely disappointing to not win the night, didn't see the season end in the way it did. And it hurts, so we didn't make enough place to win. Every play matters so much, and there were many that we'd love to have back. Craig heist was at a classic AFC north battle. Sam humbert's 98 yard touchdown return of a Tyler Huntley fumbled with 1139 to go in the fourth quarter snapped to 17 all tie as the Bengals hung on to beat the ravens 24 to 17. Credit to Logan Wilson punching it out and just being the right place right time. Got a few blocks along the way and I was just worried about getting tracked down and I'm glad I made it to the end zone. Joe burrow threw for a touchdown and ran for another while Raven quarterback Tyler Huntley threw for two scores, but he was also intercepted. His last second pass on fourth down with no time left fell incomplete. The wild card round concludes with the Buccaneers hosting the cowboys. Dallas earned four more wins during the regular season, but Tampa Bay gained home field by winning its division at 8 and 9. Bucks quarterback Tom Brady is seeking an 8th Super Bowl title and knows what it'll take to win on Monday. You're gonna have to make the plays at the end. And it's tough because there's good teams and there's little margin of air. And all these teams are well coached. I got good offenses, good defenses. They got a lot of good playmakers. Those are the best teams that are playing right now and you've got to play good if you want to if you want to advance. Brady is 7 or all time versus the cowboys. Cowboys quarterback dak Prescott is still chasing his first Super Bowl title and has lost three of his four playoff starts. So there's a sense of urgency. We've got to win, obviously every playoff game you go into it, thinking you've got to win, but having the past experiences I've had in the playoffs just understanding the team that we have, what we're capable of doing, being on the road, just know that we got to go in. We've got to stay calm. We've got to stay within ourselves and play our best game. The box defeated the cowboys 19 three on opening week. I'm Dave ferry, AP sports.

God Says 'Be Anxious for Nothing'

"A brand handsome who's written a book called able, how just one change can make all of life better. And this is a revised and updated version because the previous version was loaded with anger and you had to edit that out, correct? It was just dripping with rage and he thought that makes no sense. That makes no sense. Right. Okay, so we're talking about, I mean, there are certain scriptures that I have to remember constantly. Like one of them in philippians, be anxious for nothing. But in all things, by prayer and supplication, make your quest known unto God. You know, because it's very natural for me to be anxious because things are wrong, things are screwed up. And I have to remember that God says, in love, he says to me, son, be anxious for nothing, but bring these things to me in prayer. Yes, these are screwed up things, but instead of being anxious and letting it rot you from the inside out in anger or whatever it is, bring it to me. Pray, ask me how you should deal with this or ask me to deal with it. It's really important for our souls for our lives for our health, for our physical health, that we don't walk around carrying anger. That is a fact, and the Bible says that over and over and over again. And obviously, in your book on offender bowl, you talk about that. Well, Jesus is brilliant because he's given us the best way to live. He's a genius. And all the other things he is, but he's on the cross saying father forgive them. They don't know what they're doing. I think we forget that when we see people saying things are horribly wrong, doing things are obviously horribly wrong. It's on display every day. However, if you're also somebody who's a Jesus follower, for instance, you're coming at it from that angle, you know you're in a battle not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual things. So I have to look at somebody with compassion and go, okay, they're fooled, they're taking over, they're doing evil things, but I'm not I'm actually not at war with them.

"bowling" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know

"And I knew it was like a really hard thing to do, but I had no idea literally until today that it's only been done four times in televised pro bowling tournaments. Yeah, I think the first time it was ever shown live was like 2010 or 12 when was that one? Well, I mean, I saw, I don't know about live, but I saw clips from the 80s. Okay, so what's happening? So what I saw on CBS sports is that there was a bowler who did it. It was a PBA bowler. He did it, and it was the first time it was captured on live television. The last time that it had happened was like 1991, and apparently it wasn't televised live. So it is extremely rare, and the chances of you actually making it happen are really, really slim. I saw something like a .85 or maybe even .085% chance. Of .8 of syncing a 7 ten split. And it's because you have to hit either the 7 pin or the ten pin in such a way that you knock it directly into the other pin opposite it. In a direction that's perpendicular, essentially, to the direction the balls traveling. And in that sense, you're knocking both pins down using one pin to knock the other pin down. It's extremely hard to do. I didn't realize how hard it was to do either. I'm like you, I was just like yeah, 7 tenths player everybody knows that's hard. Yeah, but I did not know is that rare. And just to shout out the gentleman who did it, most recently, you can look it up on the Internet 18 year old name Anthony Neuer, it's kind of fun to watch because people go nuts. It's kind of fun to see something like that happen. But the announcers screamed out because this kid's got red hair. The Ginger assassin. He did say that. Not only does he have red hair, he's got a luxurious mullet, I believe. It looked pretty mullet. I didn't get a side view, but it looked like he was partying in the rear. It definitely did look moldy too. So congratulations to you, sir. And I guess that's about it. Bowling still goes on. The change in balls didn't just change it for the casual bowler changed it for the pros too. So it's undergoing or in the process of a big sea change as far as how the game is played by the pros, but it's still hanging around and think bowling's ever going extinct anytime soon. Agreed. I haven't been in so long. This is inspired me to go out. I think my daughter would enjoy it at this age would be fun. I'll see you there, chuck. Let's do it. Oh, and one more thing I want to shout

"And you can kind of think of those spinning tires as like a baseball pitching machine when you stick the baseball in between the two, the two tires, and it shoots it out. Right, but not only shoots it out, it moves it upward vertically, which is pretty cool because again, this is a 16 pound ball. And then I looked and I didn't see anybody say anything about it, but it looks like that top wheel spins in a direction that will put spin on the ball. So it loses momentum as it's coming up because it's spinning the opposite direction of the direction it's traveling. I'm not a 100% sure that's basic exclusively on my own information or observation. And I haven't conducted any sort of scientific study of it. Because you got to watch those fingies when you go to pick the ball up. For sure, because that's a lot coming out. But I think that they put spin on it to make it slow down. That's right. All right, so meanwhile, you've got Iraq that's going to drop over the pins and you have a, you know, obviously if you don't knock everything down, there's something called a sweep wagon or a sweeper that's going to sweep away those pins, but you want to keep those pins that are there, and this machine drops down, there's something called a pin detecting plate that's going to detect whether or not there's a pin there. And then it will engage these grasping claws called spotting tongs. Is that right? Yeah, I think so. Okay. And they grab that bin and pick it up. Yeah, because it's really important that whatever pins are less standing after the first throw in the frame, you want to move them up and out of the way before you sweep the Deadwood that's left on the lane back toward that conveyor belt, right? Right. And then it brings it back down, sets them back in place, and then the pins that are lifts back up, and it's ready for that second throw. But in the meantime, that conveyor belt that's moving all the dead one in the ball that was swept back beyond the lane. That's moving so the ball's been shunted off into the ball return. And what's left are pins that are just kind of spinning around, bobbling around. It almost looks like a lotto machine with the balls pop, but like jumping around inside of it. And behind right behind that conveyor belt is an elevator. And an elevator is designed with a bunch of, I think, 14 different little buckets in each bucket, very snugly, holds a bowling pin, and the bowling pinch is kind of fall into the elevator. Sideways. One by one. Yes, sideways on their side, right? Yeah. And then one by one, they're lifted up and taken to the top of the pin setter. And some more magic happens too. Yes, more magic happens. They have these centering wedges that get them all ready to go.

"Wisely points out that there is quite a bit of bowling gear for a game that you can play in short pants while drinking beer. We'll talk about the ball in a second, but well, let's go ahead and talk about the ball. Yeah. What are you waiting for? I don't know. The original bowling balls were wood. It was a hardwood native to the Caribbean and South America called lignum, even looked it up. Yeah, or G icon, geokon tree. Oh, is that the tree? That's the tree. Yeah, you said the text onic name. I think one of the common names is gee yacon. Okay. But it's very hard. Dense wood and that worked out for a little while, but then the 20th century rolls around and they said, hey, we got new things like rubber. So let's make them out of rubber. And they had a core, which was either one or two piece that would be connected by pegs. And then like a one inch outer shell, and then Brunswick came along, the rubber man was the crew that worked on this project. And developed something called a mineral light bowling ball in the 1910s, which Ed couldn't figure out what that was. And from what I saw, I don't know if you did any digging. I found that it wasn't a substance, but it was more of a process, right? Yeah, and I think that the process resulted in a hard rubber ball. Right, but it was a ball that floated in liquid mercury that they would continually kind of use to tweak the ball. Is that right? I didn't see that. That must have been amazing and dangerous. Well, that's what I saw because mercury would be the mineral. So I think it's a process of making the bowling ball using this liquid mercury. And we should say bowling balls didn't used to be made out of like bouncy rubber. That would be an entirely different game from what we're talking about. This is like hard rubber like a hockey puck. Yeah, not or flubber. You don't want that. No. No chuck. And by the way, if I'm wrong about the mineral light, it is pretty hard to find out a lot about that for some reason. Yeah, I don't know either. If someone if I was wrong in that and someone knows what it is, please let me know.

"Points in bowling. So that if you bowl a strike at any given frame, then the number of pins you knock down in the next two frames affect your score in that first frame that you bowl the strike in. Okay. I told you it's really complicated. And in scoring strikes is easier than scoring spares, which I'm hesitant to even get into, but the upshot is that there are bonus points and scoring a spare in a spare, by the way, is when you knock down all ten pins, but it takes you both of your throws in a single frame, right? Right, which can happen, you can knock down one pin, and then 9 pins, or you can knock down 9, and then one, or any combination therein. Yeah, as long as all of the pins are knocked down by your second throat, right? That's a spare. And then your next throw in the next frame, those points get added to that frame previously where you threw a spare, the frame before. It's way more nuanced than that actually, but that's, frankly, I'm very relieved because that's a pretty good overview of scoring and bowling. Yeah, and in the old days, when we were growing up pre computerized scoring, I felt like there was always somebody in the group that knew how to do it. They were kind of the de facto scorekeeper. And you would indicate a strike. And it's still indicated via computer with an X and a spare with a slash mark through the square, and of course, now with the computer thing, you can, when you bowl a strike, they flash your name up there. So people inevitably list their name as Chewbacca or fart face or something. Yeah. Something really fun. Yeah, yeah. I mean, it's kind of incumbent upon you to come up with a silly name. Unless your name is doctor finger, but then you definitely just use your real name.

"It's just kind of a catch all term for things that stink. That happened to you. Whether you like it or not. Yeah, and these days they have, if you go bowling with your younger kids or just someone who really wants to make the game a lot easier, they have these little gutter guards, little gates that lift up automatically if you so choose or not automatically trigger it to. And then that way your 6 year old can throw a bowling ball down and it'll just go side to side, hitting those things all the way down. Right. Yeah, and they might get lucky and ricochet right into the pocket, which is the sweet spot between those pins between the first pin and either one of the two behind it depending on whether you're left hand or right hand boulder. Yeah, I mean, it's good that you brought that up. If anyone ever didn't bowl much and thought, well, why do those pro bowlers and certain jerks at regular bowling alleys?

"And I knew it was like a really hard thing to do, but I had no idea literally until today that it's only been done four times in televised pro bowling tournaments. Yeah, I think the first time it was ever shown live was like 2010 or 12 when was that one? Well, I mean, I saw, I don't know about live, but I saw clips from the 80s. Okay, so what's happening? So what I saw on CBS sports is that there was a bowler who did it. It was a PBA bowler. He did it, and it was the first time it was captured on live television. The last time that it had happened was like 1991, and apparently it wasn't televised live. So it is extremely rare, and the chances of you actually making it happen are really, really slim. I saw something like a .85 or maybe even .085% chance. Of .8 of syncing a 7 ten split. And it's because you have to hit either the 7 pin or the ten pin in such a way that you knock it directly into the other pin opposite it. In a direction that's perpendicular, essentially, to the direction the balls traveling. And in that sense, you're knocking both pins down using one pin to knock the other pin down. It's extremely hard to do. I didn't realize how hard it was to do either. I'm like you, I was just like yeah, 7 tenths player everybody knows that's hard. Yeah, but I did not know is that rare. And just to shout out the gentleman who did it, most recently, you can look it up on the Internet 18 year old name Anthony Neuer, it's kind of fun to watch because people go nuts. It's kind of fun to see something like that happen. But the announcers screamed out because this kid's got red hair. The Ginger assassin. He did say that. Not only does he have red hair, he's got a luxurious mullet, I believe. It looked pretty mullet. I didn't get a side view, but it looked like he was partying in the rear. It definitely did look moldy too. So congratulations to you, sir. And I guess that's about it. Bowling still goes on. The change in balls didn't just change it for the casual bowler changed it for the pros too. So it's undergoing or in the process of a big sea change as far as how the game is played by the pros, but it's still hanging around and think bowling's ever going extinct anytime soon. Agreed. I haven't been in so long. This is inspired me to go out. I think my daughter would enjoy it at this age would be fun. I'll see you there, chuck. Let's do it. Oh, and one more thing I want to shout

"And you can kind of think of those spinning tires as like a baseball pitching machine when you stick the baseball in between the two, the two tires, and it shoots it out. Right, but not only shoots it out, it moves it upward vertically, which is pretty cool because again, this is a 16 pound ball. And then I looked and I didn't see anybody say anything about it, but it looks like that top wheel spins in a direction that will put spin on the ball. So it loses momentum as it's coming up because it's spinning the opposite direction of the direction it's traveling. I'm not a 100% sure that's basic exclusively on my own information or observation. And I haven't conducted any sort of scientific study of it. Because you got to watch those fingies when you go to pick the ball up. For sure, because that's a lot coming out. But I think that they put spin on it to make it slow down. That's right. All right, so meanwhile, you've got Iraq that's going to drop over the pins and you have a, you know, obviously if you don't knock everything down, there's something called a sweep wagon or a sweeper that's going to sweep away those pins, but you want to keep those pins that are there, and this machine drops down, there's something called a pin detecting plate that's going to detect whether or not there's a pin there.

"Yeah, yeah. The whole deal from the end. Yeah, let's do it totally. So despite it already being made of pretty slick material, a bowling alley lane is actually coated in mineral oil, and it's coated in different places and not just across bowling alleys, like a different bowling alley, will have oil in different they apply it in different patterns in different ways. Yeah, and this is, this is the reason why an Ed sort of posed the question if a schmo like me can go out there and bowl a one 80 and the average professional bowler bowls between two ten and two 20, like I might think, hey, I'm pretty close to that score. I could do this a couple of times a week and I could be a pro bowler. And apparently that is not the case because of the fact this one fact that standard bowling alleys where schmoe is like us bowl. We get the mineral oil application and pattern that is the most forgiving and I guess the easiest and most geared toward amateur bowlers. Right. So like if you get a gutter ball or you just somehow miss all of your pins, you have really failed at a just normal bowling alley because they're actually setting you up as best they can to get a strike every time. So you're actually really working against the workers at the bowling alley at that point. But the upshot of it is that it's geared toward making the casual bowler a better bowler. If the casual bowler stepped out and started bowling on the lane that had a PBA professional bowlers association approved oil pattern, you would be totally lost. You would probably get a gutter ball every single time. And that's, like you said, that's the difference between the casual and the pro bowler. It's so much harder to bowl in the pros because of that oil that they put in different kinds of patterns depending on the tournament depending on the alley, depending on sometimes probably bowlers preferences. Yeah, and the sort of the simplest way to describe it without getting too dense into the patterns themselves. If there's less oil, then it's not going to be as slick and it's going to have a little more grab. So if you get the house oil treatment, which is what they call the standard treatment for amateur bowlers, there's going to be less oil along the edges and along the sides near the gutters. So hopefully if it veers that way, it'll grab and try and veer itself back toward the center. And I think it's fairly subtle. It's not so much that you can just obviously throw one up there and it'll just sort of ping Pong down there toward the middle because of the oil application.

We had a temper and he was therefore known for creating disturbances when he stepped onto the racetrack. Often there would be a groom on each side of the voice of tempting to keep him under control just long enough to get into the starting line. He would launch out and right he would plant himself against the inside rail and refused to budge on one occasion he even had to be walked backwards over the course of two hundred yards just to get him into line for the start of the race. How then did tom bowling earned induction into racing's hall of fame in a ceremony staged yesterday in saratoga springs new york. The answer is simple. In addition to having an temperament tom bowling was a talented racehorse. he had speed. He had stamina and his victories. Were so impressive.

This one's good but it's pink fingers don't fit. How do they decide on those finger. Sizes the reader for a five year. Old girl or the incredible hulk. Bigger some people's fingers some guy weren't a catcher as it's good can still catch. The game was bowling shoes. Update their you need our special shoes before you can roll our magic ball. Some people have their own bowling ball and their own bowling shoes and no friends. Good.
