The Show Trial for the Invented Insurrection With Will Chamberlain
"Well, I'm delighted to be back sitting in for Seb doing America first radio, and even more delighted to now have in the chair. One of my favorite lawyers, which is admittedly a short list. I think it's pretty much you and schlichter. But Wilt Chamberlain is here. And I would love will to get your opinion of just how brutally effective the show trial for the invented insurrection has been at throwing the trader Trump into the brink. He's going to jail, right? Well, I think there's so many different problems. We just start with yesterday what happened with Cassidy Hutchinson. I remember watching Fox News and hearing Brett, tell me, oh, this is devastating. Did you hear? This is devastating testimony, and it's like clearly you've never seen a trial because the first thing you notice is it's hearsay. She's almost very rarely is she testifying even to a conversation she herself heard most of the talk is about someone else told her that Trump said X and that's not just hearsay, it's actually what we call double hearsay. The hearsay statement of Trump being offered for whatever the truth of that it was asserted. And then there's the hearsay statement of the person gossiping, right? So you have these it's the legal standard for gossip. We got hearsay, double hearsay, gossip. BS, which is what it seems. And so, you know, it's not that all hearsay statements are inadmissible. There are actually a lot of exceptions to the hearsay rule. But this is the classic example of why we have a hearsay rule, right? You have this woman saying, well, I heard that Trump grabbed the Stuart, you know, this guy, this guy told me Trump grab the steering wheel, and then you realize, well, that's not even possible. And then within an hour of the testimony, it comes out that the Secret Service agents are perfectly willing to say under oath, no, that never happened.

"CBS News special report, the Supreme Court has ruled President Biden can and a Trump era migrant policy. This 5 to four ruling allows the Biden administration to move forward with its plans to wind down the remain in Mexico program and have asylum seekers presenting themselves on the U.S. side of the border instead. Chief justice John Roberts and Trump appointee Brett Kavanaugh sided with the court's three liberals. Conservative justice Samuel Alito says the ruling will mean untold numbers of immigrants will be released into the country, and in his dissent he wrote quote I can not go along with any of this. CBS is Stephen portnoy. The Supreme Court also curbed the administration's power to limit greenhouse gases retired federal judge Vanessa Gilmore says this may not be the end. If Congress wants to revise or change the clean air act to expand the control of greenhouse emissions through any of the previous policies that we're trying to be enacted, then they will have to take up the response to those who are doing that.

A Deeper Look at Cassidy Hutchinson's 'Bombshell' Testimony
"The latest witness call by the January 6th committee was Cassidy Hutchinson and aid or former aide to Mark Meadows, who was the chief of staff under Trump. And Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony was immediately hailed by the media. And in fact, even by some on the right, I mean, I'm thinking of Andy McCarthy at national review, very compelling Brett bear, of course, yes, he was completely convinced completely on board. Crushing testimony and so on in the media, of course, was hailing this. She's sort of the latest savior. On the supposedly with the Republican tag. This was part of the game. You bring in people who are nominally Republican, you say, look, even a Republican says. And she put out a whole bunch of stuff. I mean, a good bit of it was just hearsay things that she had heard of things that she had been told. But it was sufficiently salacious, sufficiently bombshell ish that the media glommed right onto them, specifically two things. One is it supposedly at one point Trump got so upset, upset when Barr told him that he had lost the election that he flung his food, presumably a hamburger, Trump's favorite, up against the wall, leaving some ketchup on the wall and Cassidy Hutchinson, I had to clean it up. Now, when I first heard this, I literally chuckled because first of all, it's hard for me to see Trump doing that, but you know what, to be honest, if an election was stolen from me under my nose, I would be a little irate. I don't think I'd have thrown a burger against the wall. I think I like burgers too much, but my comment on Twitter was, do we have the full story on this if Trump really threw the burger and fell on the ground? Did Bill Barr like reach down and eat it? Hard for me to see Bill Barr turning down a burger. And but in any event, Trump, of course, was extremely scornful and Trump makes the comment on truth social. He goes, why would she have to clean it up? First of all, she does she was not a member of my staff. He goes, I don't even know who she was. And then the supposedly the big bombshell was an anecdote and incident about Trump who wanted to go to the capitol. On January 6th and was so apparently enraged that the Secret Service was reluctant to take him that he reached over and tried to grab the steering wheel of the car. Now at first people were like, I think Cassidy Hutchinson may even have said it. This was actually the so called the beast, the big limousine, the Trump limousine. And if that was the case, this would be flat out impossible.

Fresh "Brett" from All Things Considered
"Decision three years ago meant a 400% increase in federal prosecutions from 2020 to 2021, with many people either not held accountable or receiving lighter sentences in plea deals. In light of that, Oklahoma's governor and attorney general asked the Supreme Court to reverse its earlier decision. The high court refused, but today it issued a more limited decision declaring that the state may prosecute crimes committed against Native American victims by non Indians in Indian territory, bottom line, the power to prosecute will most likely now shift back to the state and away from the federal government. Just as Brett Kavanaugh wrote the decision for the court's 5 conservatives minus Neil Gorsuch, the conservative justice with the consistently loud and passionate voice for protection of Native American rights. The decision came in the case of Manuel Castro huerta, a non Indian first prosecuted by the state and sentenced to 35 years in prison for the criminal abuse of his 5 year old Cherokee stepdaughter, who weighed only 19 pounds and was covered with feces and lice when she was taken to the hospital. His conviction was set aside after the Supreme Court's 2019 decision, and he was then sentenced to 7 years in a plea deal with federal prosecutors. Today, the Supreme Court ruled that the state had concurrent power to prosecute him. Governor Kevin stitt called the decision a pivotal victory that would allow the state to prosecute non Indians and to protect Native American victims. But the chief of the Cherokee tribe trek hoskin junior said that unlike previous governors stitt has been unwilling to work cooperatively with the tribes. Governor state is an outlier in my experience with Oklahoma governor in the last certainly 20 years we've had very good relationships with governors. It's only been under governor stitt that we've ran into someone who just fundamentally does not see a role for tribes in the modern world. Justice Kavanaugh's majority decision was based in large part on practicalities, Indian country is part of the state, not separate from the state, he said, and therefore unless Congress says otherwise, a state has jurisdiction over all of its territory, including Indian territory. Justice Gorsuch, who usually is part of the court's most conservative block instead voted with the court's three liberals. In a scathing descent he recounted the famous decision written by chief justice John Marshall in 1832, which barred the state of Georgia from throwing some 100,000 Cherokee Indians off their land. The decision was for not, though, because both Georgia and president Andrew Jackson flouted it, leading to the Indian trail of tears en route to newly designated Indian reservations, west of the Mississippi River. Where this court stood firm then, Gorsuch said, today it wilts. Nina totenberg NPR news, Washington. You're listening to all things considered from NPR news.

Supreme Court Strikes Down Gun Restrictions in New York
"The big news yesterday, of course, Supreme Court said that the Second Amendment oddly means what it says. It's a plane reading. I was on with special report last night with Brett bear joined by the estimable Molly Hemingway and Leslie Marshall and got asked out of the box explain it and it's a 136 pages, but I did this in 53 seconds, cut number 22. You significant, this gun ruling today, the impact nationwide. Well, there are 6 other states brat that have the same sort of regime about issuing permits that New York State does, a regime that was struck down as unconstitutional under the plain language of the Second Amendment today. Justice Alito, he wrote a concurring opinion, 6 judges, 6 justices agreed and justice Thomas wrote the majority opinion, but justice later said, look, what we're deciding today is very simply put. Americans have the right to go out of their house and carry their weapon in self defense. They don't have to beg a bureaucrat to get that permit. And 43 states already agree with that. The 7 states who have asked me may give you the permit regimes, their laws are unconstitutional. No one should be surprised by this. It's been ten years coming and being made explicit, but it's not a surprise.
Fresh update on "brett" discussed on Longform Podcast
"Vox with whom we make this show and now here's my conversation with Rebecca tracer. Yesterday. Hi Rebecca. Hi, max. The last time we talked for the show at least, it was a day in which it became clear that Brett Kavanaugh was going to be the next Supreme Court Justice. And we sat down and I asked how you were feeling. And here we are again. And so I will ask. How are you feeling? I mean, I'm feeling very similarly to how I did that day. I mean, that day, I count that day as one of my, I have 5 moments in recent years in which I very specifically understood that this was where we were ultimately part of where we were ultimately going to wind up, right? And that day with you wasn't your fault. But that day with you counts as one of my 5 data points, you know, being here where we are now is something I've feared for. Most of my adult life. But there were specific starting with election night 2016 and the retirement of Anthony Kennedy, the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett are my 5 points where every one of those points I was like, right, we're now heading straight into a future in which row will be overturned, but I don't want to make it seem like that's the only part of that future, right? There's a whole future that has been very clear to me. And so that day was one of those 5 moments where that clarity was really really sharp. For me, even knowing that Friday was coming. Friday felt different. Then I expected it to. And you have been saying publicly that Friday was coming this decision was coming for a long time. At each one of those moments, you were writing prepare yourself because this moment is coming and I wonder how it was for you on Friday. When that news came. There is this weird thing of being shocked and not shocked. And I don't mean to be, I hate the sort of stance of like, I don't know why the rest of you are surprised. I've known this was coming for years, which is like, I mean a very popular way to I think it's a rhetorical technique to make yourself feel better when you do that. But right, it's my job to have been thinking about this and understanding that this was among the many outcomes. That we were heading toward. And yet, the reality of it is, is awful, it's awful, and you're balancing in your own head, like, wait, why am I feeling this way? I knew this was happening. And yet you're feeling like all the moisture has been drained from your body and your eyes are going to pop out of your head. The night of the leak, I mean, I was shocked by the leak, right? I was shocked by the actual timing of the leak. The baldness of it, right? I found myself intellectually totally unsurprised and yet my body was shaking. Like shaking for hours in that cold sort of shockwave. And then on Friday, I was far more prepared because we'd seen the leak. So, you know, we were and I was with my colleague, I'm so grateful to have been with my colleague just threw a set of circumstances we were working together in my home. My colleague ran carmone, who covers this so closely. But we didn't necessarily think it was going to be that morning. And so the shock of it happening and being real, again, the physical manifestations of that, the absorption of, okay, this is no longer the thing I'm anticipating. This is the world now as it is. And thinking immediately of the people who were in waiting rooms, and since then, I've read the incredible coverage, including in The New Yorker of the what was happening in clinics. But that was what I was thinking of because I had known so many people who were preparing for this within, you know, that this moment was going to come and just trying to get the people who needed care care before it came and then immediately thinking about the people who were in the clinics in the waiting rooms in that moment. And so yeah, it was horrible, and it was physically felt, even though, intellectually and emotionally, I probably was among about as prepared as you could be. That gap between the intellectual and the emotional and the way you're describing it. It's almost like when someone you know is going to die actually dies. I mean, that's the closest corollary I can think of. You know it is coming and yet when it comes, the physical manifestations of it are impossible to prepare for. Yeah, I think that's right. And I think it's a process of girding yourself, and yet there's actually nothing that can prepare you. You're girding yourself because you understand that enormous loss is coming. But then when the loss is there, you've experienced the loss, and it is a different sensation. I would add that there's another element in my business. And one of the elements that I try to get at, which is that to be a person who writes about this stuff in public, and in pretty mainstream public places, right? Is to have spent a lot of my career being told that I was overstating everything, right? And that has a particular that's not just me being like, I was told I was hysterical and I was mad. No, I am somebody who's very susceptible to having people peers, often peers who I somehow absorb as having authority, right? Even if I can sort of say, I think they're full of shit. There's something about having some of the more powerful people in the profession of political reporting, for instance, tell you you're being crazy, which is what I've been told, not just about roe, but about when I was very scared that Donald Trump was going to win the presidency. Don't be silly. Donald Trump isn't going to be president, right? You're being ridiculous. And this idea that you're borrowing drama, right? Like you're borrowing, oh, and it's very tied to sort of feminizing and it's a complicated dynamic. But it really matters that at every stage. Of my career, I have been told that my worst fears were definitely overstated. And with particular, for example, that was happening up through, I mean, there is a leaked draft of a decision. And there are not just random people on Twitter, but experts like legal experts, political experts, you know, mainstream beltway reporters being like, oh, but Roberts is going to take the more moderate path, which, first of all, it was a lie in a distortion. It wasn't more moderate. Secondly, it was like being told, it's just a draft. That's not the final. All this denialism, and the denialism is meant to make everybody calm down, I guess. Do you feel like that denialism has continued even since Friday? Yes. With this kind of rhetoric of like, at least like wealthy white women in New York will continue to have abortion act. Listen, the denialism exists on so many levels. People have also, among the things that people who've been saying, roe is going to be overturned, right? Or row is even to say ro is at risk over the past decades. Even as roe itself was being hollowed out, you were told if you said that publicly, that roe is safe. You know, there was just complete denialism..

Caller Defends Nancy Pelosi for Not Condemning Violence on Churches
"I'm great. Go ahead and tell me why Nancy Pelosi is worth defending on this subject. Fancy Pelosi has a speaker in the House, is putting out a generic statement. Now, when she says she's a real Catholic. Camp the Catholic Church takes a real strong stance on violence, destruction, abortion. We're based on scripture as all faith I believe are. But she doesn't say go and burn down buildings. Go and attack. She just is not saying anything because she doesn't support it. But when you're being watched by the turtle because I believe she has lost the right to take communion. She is now, you know, with all due respect, you sort of merge the two topics. On the issue of abortion, she is asked, how do you reconcile your Catholic Church, your Catholicism with being pro abortion and her answer was, I'm a very I'm very Catholic. Then on the subject of the burning of pro life pregnancy centers, she was asked, why don't Democrats condone it? And she said a woman has a right to choose. Those are two different things in two different specific answers.
Joe Biden Offers Condolences, Saying Jo-Ann Stores CFO 'Dropped Dead'
"But we were talking about the state of affairs and Dennis talking about Joe Biden's inability to be a decent person. I don't know if that's what this is all about or not, but listen to what he said to the CEO of Joanne stores who again, her husband passed away. This is how the consoler in chief. That's what they like to call him. The consoler in chief, check out how he consoled her. And by the way, my sympathies to the family of your. You CFO, who are drop dead very unexpectedly. And my best of their family is tough stuff. Oh boy. Oh boy. When you're saying you're sorry that your husband died, you might want not want to say he dropped dead. To the grieving widow, that's our president, yep,
Democrats Are Bad, Evil People
"Maybe Dennis prager is right. And I've heard the great Sebastian gorka say similar things. These people aren't just politically in the wilderness. They're bad people. They're evil. And if you're unable to condemn the attempted assassination of and Dennis said it last night. It's because they wanted it. If a conservative got murdered, Biden could put a liberal justice on the court on the bench. And you know, he said that and it gave me, it gave me, it made my blood run cold. Because I don't want to admit that. I don't want to say that. But I think it must be said.
Nancy Pelosi Refuses to Condemn Violence Against Churches
"Because if I told you the Nancy Pelosi. Ripped up the speech, the State of the Union address right in front of Donald Trump, you wouldn't have believed it. You'd say that's right out of an episode of veep. She's not that maniacal. She's not that nefarious, which she did it. Remember? Will you ever forget the image of Nancy Pelosi ripping up the text of president Trump's State of the Union, ripping it up, seconds after he completed the speech? Has there ever been a more despicable act by a public servant in the history of America? Yesterday, she was asked, why aren't Democrats condemning? The firebombings, the violent attacks on godly pro life pregnancy centers and churches all around America. We've made sure in context you can hear the question and the evil evil answer. Abortion case is concerned. On churches on crisis pregnancy centers, Republicans are going after Democrats for not saying anything and they're saying that your rhetoric is contributing to the tax on these prices. Well, let me just say this. A woman has a right to choose to live up to her responsibility. It's up to her. Her doctor, her family, her husband, her significant other, and her God. This talk politicizing all of this, I think, is something uniquely American and not right. Can you believe that? Can you believe, can you believe that's the answer to the question? A woman has a right to, hey, madam speaker, what do you think about churches being firebombed? A woman has a right to choose, it's like it's like Tourette syndrome.
Joey Hudson Bullies Mike Gallagher to Sing the National Anthem Live
"Me in advance. I'm going to apologize if this sounds crappy. He gave me no notice. I did not warm up. Thank goodness I remembered the words. Thank goodness I remembered to hit the notes because I was nervous as heck with about 5 seconds notice that here's my rendition of our national anthem last night at the 94 5 the answer patriots for America event with Dennis brager Mike Gallagher and my treacherous friend, Joey Hudson. Paul Jose, can you see by the dawns early light what so proudly we hailed at the twilight last gleaming whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight or the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming and the rockets red glare the bombs burst gave proof through the night that our flag was still there oh say does that star spangled banner yes. Or the land of the free and the home of the great. Wow all right, so a little pitchy started probably too high a key. I mean, you have no idea there's no key to start. There's no note and there was Joey Hudson just grinning like the Cheshire cat that he is throwing me that curve ball and having me sing
Expect to Be Frugal at Joey Hudson's Home
"I was with hundreds of people last night. You know, it's funny story about being here in the upstate of South Carolina with my pal Joey Hudson and his wife peg and we're broadcasting from the luxurious Hudson compound, the guest quarters I had fun last night making fun of Joey with the tiny little bar of soap that he left me upstairs in the bathroom and the tiny little roll of toilet paper. It's the smallest roll of toilet paper I've ever seen in the history of toilet paper. I don't know how he does it. Joey is so the nice way to put it is frugal. The more direct way it is to point out that he has the first dollar he ever made. He gets so mad at me for and he's my business manager. So when all the money that I spend goes out the window, he just shakes his head. He gave up trying to talk me out of my stupid extravagant spending habits. I just like to spend, you know? Thank goodness I've got a decent job that makes gives me a good living and I can afford some things that I probably shouldn't be spending money on. And I tried very hard to be as charitable and as giving as I can, but God has been good to me and God is blessed me and so Joey tries to remind me constantly that I should be more frugal. So that's why you should see the little bar of soap. It's like you hold the soap between your index finger and your thumb. And this is the bath, that's your body soap upstairs in the bathroom. Here at the Hudson farms. So to wash your like your left shoulder, that's the end of the bar. You need like 6 bars of soap to cover your body.

Joe Biden's Example of 'Evil'
"Not going to be overturned. Abortion will still be legal in America. It will simply be decided by the states and inevitably blue states will be pro abortion, red states will be pro life. Maybe some red states will be pro abortion. I don't know, maybe they'll be an outlier and a blue state that will be pro life. But it's not a federal decision. And the court is probably going to strike that down. But as we know, the homes of some of the Supreme Court Justices conservative jurists have been targeted for protests, led by the Democrats. Who don't seem to condemn it. Oh, the irony of the January 6th select committee. Where right now Liz Cheney is leading her Mary band of witch hunters? In trying to make the case that Donald Trump and the Republicans and the conservative media incited violence on January 6th. Well, who incited Nicholas John Rossi? You want me to play the list of Democrat? Officials? Even Joe Biden? You want me to you want me to point out? That the harsh, vile rhetoric, directed to the Supreme Court over this issue? Could very well have incited an assassination against a supreme justice and yet Joe Biden is utterly silent about it. His silence isn't politics. I'd submit to you that that's evil. I would submit to you that that's an example of evil.
Joe Biden Still Silent on Attempted Assassination of Justice Kavanaugh
"Last night, here in the upstate of South Carolina, we had an event with hundreds of people that the radio station presented, and one of the issues that came up at this town hall forum was whether or not the Democrats are just misguided and delusional and wrong on policy or are many of them evil. Is there an evilness to the silence of an American president over an assassination plot against a Supreme Court Justice? To this day, Joe Biden has failed to say anything at all about the man who has now formally been indicted for the assassination plot against justice Brett Kavanaugh. You don't need me to tell you what Biden would be doing if that assassination plot had been carried out against a liberal justice. You don't need me to tell you what the media would be doing. If some lunatic evil monster tried to assassinate a liberal justice on the court, but this week Nicholas John Rossi from Simi Valley, California, who is in federal custody, is facing life in prison, he was indicted and formally charged with the attempted assassination with the assassination rather of Brett Kavanaugh. He planned to kill him, he told an FBI agent that he wanted to give his life a purpose, he wanted to kill justice Kavanaugh because he thought he would rule in favor of gun rights after the mass shooting and Yuval di. He was also targeting justice Kavanaugh because he was angry that the court was about to overturn abortion

The Disconnect Between Democrats and Law Enforcement
"Them. My mother in law sent me an article about the border patrol agents that were mounted, they were all mounted horses, and they were using split reins, but you know, they were accused by these crazy liberal lunatics. They were accused and said that they were whipping people. Now we're going to talk about that later. Shout out to my mother in law for giving me that story. However, the Democrats, 27 Democrats voted against protecting the Supreme Court justices. Why do you say that, mister Tatum? After Brett Kavanaugh, a person literally showed up to his house to kill him. Okay, can you imagine this? A person showed up to a Supreme Court Justice house to kill him because they disagreed with the position that he may take on roe V wade. The stances that he may have taken if the gun law legislation was brought to the Supreme Court. Show her to kill him. And immediately, Republicans asked for there to be protection for Brett Kavanaugh. Now in the credit of Democrats and Republicans in a bipartisan bipartisan measure in the Senate, all 100 senators voted, yes, to have the Supreme Court Justice get more security 24 hours a day. They're immediate family is I'll read the details of it. But to get them more security, the beef of the security is so they will be protected.
Biden Has Not Addressed Attempted Assassination of Justice Kavanaugh
"Do you know to this day as I understand it? And Derek fact checked me if I'm wrong. To this day, Biden has not even spoken about the guy from California. Who traveled to Brett Kavanaugh's home, armed to the teeth and ready to murder the Supreme Court Justice. Over roe V wade. Biden can declare today world elder abuse day, but he can't speak out against an assassination attempt. Against a conservative Supreme Court Justice. Again, this is evil. We are not in a political battle. We're in a spiritual battle. We are in a cultural war. We are in a tug of war for the soul of this country.

And we're joined by brett laurence today. Brett were back You know. I just think that we've been talking a lot of baseball. And i know you're a big sports fan with everything And you're probably like me trying to watch as much as possible On tv did you watch the homerun. Derby last night i did watch homerun derby. I think the big hype was shohei. Ohtani ride coming in. And he's the the big draw and he's basically the modern day babe ruth. It's pretty cool to see. Like i never no one ever thinks we'd see that because everyone so against him doing people doing that so it was cool to watch and course field the ball flies so it's a little better there But no it was a fun event. But you think i you know what i liked about. It was that the fans were felt like they were really into it. And i don't know if you saw what they did is that when When the players were up. I think they signed their base falls. So that when they hit them out like the people would catch assigned baseball which was really cool. Really you know. And if baseball is a sport that has to do more things to keep it pumping keep it going to keep the engagement in the hands into it. And i thought caufield was really. It was exciting right. And i think that just making a big deal like like otani just making a big deal out of it. People are pumping up because baseball needs that. We need all those guys to be able to come in there and get the sport to where it needs to be compared to all the other sports and I thought it was great. It was fun to see the fans and everyone involved in it But i i just don't get how they can hit it so far when it's not coming in at ninety five miles an hour. Yeah i think it's just because they're they're like lifting right there like upper cutting their swings and they're trying to and maybe the balls are a little bit different for the homerun derby who they use a little bit. I mean i've i've taken batting practice before and it's not like you can. I mean they're hitting them five hundred some feet. That's and ball's coming in. Like i could see you when it's coming in like five to one hundred like the velocity coming in hitting with the bat like it's going to travel faster out but those guys were crushing it. They're so good at making contact like right on the barrel just goes swings are so good i mean. That's the difference meeting with the pros and the joes right. They're that good. Yeah it was fun to watch. I'm excited and we were talking about otani. I think you know everybody's dream. Wouldn't it be like that you can pitch. You could play field. You can hit. Why do you think that is that more. You being a pitcher. When i ask you why do you think it is. More pitchers can't hit because we don't work on it. You know when you get to the college in the minors. You're really not hitting that often. It's not a priority and plus you know forever. It's just this old stigma that you can't do both no one's pushed to do both at a high level so finally we got a guy that can and hittings hard as you know so. It's itching side. A lotta guys can probably throw hard but not a lot of people can hit like above two fifty in the big league saw right like how can you be great pitching and also be a great major league hitter. I don't see it but also like i said it's been pushed away. You're not supposed to do this until someone does. We think if you're starting pitcher you'd have way more time to practice hitting but then you're not hitting live which is way harder than even the start of your nationally picturing you're only really taking bt maybe the day before you piss just to get a couple of swings in because you're going to get a couple of bats but in the other days you're not hitting bp your shocking off field so you're not working on your crap that's why my favorite ever to watch coming up. That was a pitcher to hit. Was roberto cologne. He's he's kind of you. Know rounder guy comes up. And he i remember i think he hit a home. Run one game and it was hoped place went crazy. Bartolo bar total bartolo cologne. Yeah yeah i can't. He's still playing somewhere. I think in like mexican league or something like that. He's like fifty years old. Well yeah there's some mazing athletes like that you think you know you think. Football is like brady and he's played forever right hockey gordie howe. Yager played forever. You know you guys like that and then if basketball i think it was Vince carter just retired and he played a long long time. Those guys came out of high school plan. I think it's lebrons like sixteenth years. Something and it felt doesn't feel like that and then in baseball i feel like you could play a lot longer in baseball but it still got to be hard like a hundred that many games every year that many you know what's crazy over the last ten to fifteen years like all the older players phased out these teams. Don't wanna pay the thirty five plus guys anymore like. There's not that many older. When i say older it's like thirty five. And above which is not that old but the game has gone so young. Just those old veterans at you remember from the nineties and thousands of just not there anymore. Oh my gosh. My kids. And i collect We cards and then we sell them was by himself and we have a certain collection trying to get. But i. I like vintage car. I like vintage baseball. My dad and i always collect that and so we'll go through cards and my sons will be like. How old is this guy you know. Then he turned back over and there's like twenty eighteen like did he played for like. It's not that way anymore. And you're right. Guys guys could play forever if they could come up and hit. You know you see those guys that play forever but now it's not that way. Yeah the twenty year career. Like the cal ripken's like that just doesn't happen anymore like it's It sucks because you can't really you can't get attached to these guys as much because they're just not there that long so you think it's the money to like. They're not like trying like they made so much money. They don't have to push to like play forever right exactly and i. I don't know what it is. Everyone just got so hyper focused on the young guys in the in the league being younger in. They're coming up earlier. They're getting called up like you put your time in the minors unless your feet on. But now it's like twenty one twenty two of your ready to go and you're up there it you know so. It's a different game now. That is crazy because we felt that way in football as you get older as a veteran right your minimum goes way up. And then they're bringing these young guys who they can get three young guys for one veteran right right and so that was a big difference in football for us and So we try to try to figure that out through the collective bargaining agreement to help the veterans. Because i always think that you need veterans in the locker room to be any good you do and yeah exactly they. Just i think the organizations of i don't know if they've gotten smarter but they're just not willing to pay the legacy contract for these older guys. Were you know. It's all guaranteed football. Cut your ass like baseball can cut you. But they're still paying like bobby vinnie. A million dollars contract in history. Well that's what they're saying on the for the homerun derby repeat alonzo's this kind of he's going to be the next by we've been baena because he's gonna win the homerun derby every year right. Yeah this show up for that and you'll get some exposure and you'll get paid there. You go so you have your your baseball career. At what point did you say okay. I really gotta start figuring out. What my next step is When i was about twenty eight. I think i played my last year. I played triple a. And when i was twenty thirteen. And then i got released and then i decided to play one year of independent ball and i just told myself if i don't get picked up again then i'm don like wasn't going to be a baseball. Lifer dudes at late thirties. Forty years old still played independent ball. I just never saw myself as that guy. I didn't need the game as much. You can't sign yourself. So i had a good year in independent ball and didn't get signed back to the minors so i was ready to move on. So it's definitely a tough transition. I tell him a lot. You spend years building a resume that doesn't really translate to real life. you know. it doesn't help you really other than life experience in dealing with adversity and all those things but it doesn't help you in like selling things or you know we're now no business. No yeah you're not you're learning at craft but you're not learning like for me football. That's what i did football and family. Those are my two things in an. I didn't really think about like when. I was lucky enough to play for fifteen years right but i didn't think about okay. I'm gonna be thirty eight when i'm done. What what am i going to do next. Yeah so like if i want to. I look back on it. If i wanted to be a coach. I should really tried to get to know more coaches or figure that out. Or if i wanted to go into the staff you know go into that part or i should went back in and continued my education. But i didn't do any of that and so when you're done they don't let you back in right you you leave your not going back into the business you gotta figure it so tell me about. You left baseball. What was the feeling you had said. This is what i want to try and do. Yeah i think another thing to your point when you stop like right when you stop playing. You don't wanna coach a lot of guys. Don't because you're you're the same age as the guys you just left and you feel like you're better should be there still so pay doesn't ryan. I'm still. I can still play. You know. everyone thinks that right. So that's that's why. I didn't get into coaching right away. It's just 'cause like i don't wanna be around the game right now if i'm not plane franchising. Yeah right after that. So tell me about it. That process yeah. You know you have to being a franchisee. Yeah yeah you have to go like usually go meet with them at their headquarters once you get like the initial approval then you gotta like interview with them and they gotta trust you that you're going to be follow the rules and do all the franchisee bs and all that stuff and then we get approved and then you. The real estate team comes out and finds a location for you. We'll unfortunately so. I live in orange county which is a great place but the the whole area was taken. So it's all the inland empire which is like forty minutes our east so inland a little bit from the ocean To another city out there. That's they approved me for so you know location means everything is you probably know. And it's just it's hard like saying it's not a dinnertime business so from eleven to three. You got all your money. So it's just tough to have one location and be successful in with bringing a new brand to the area you know it's not like i built in in and out or starbucks which is like gold you know and it's tough now. What was your decision on. On that franchise was at money was it. This is like you met somebody like what. Why why the franchisee you chose. I think i'd heard it was coming to california. And i was in the midwest for some of my career. And if you're close enough to jimmy. John's they would deliver sandwiches to your clubhouse. It was great it was everyone else. Does this like. Oh people are going to love californian. Well little that i now you're competing with not just sandwich. Places subway jersey. Mike's firehouse and all these other places you've got all of lunchtime business to compete with is one of many for lunch. I it's really. it's it the restaurant. business is really hard. Yeah and so you grew up. I would take you grew up really fast in the business world exactly for sure. Yeah yeah. Luckily my dad's a an accountant so he helped me like financially figure things out with the labor costs. Food costs all those things. You really you know they the problem with franchising is. They're so rigid in. You have to do it their way and like you know. They're making a stay open till nine pm will who's buying a cold sandwich for dinner in the on. It just doesn't happen so you're burning through labor and it you learn a lot about how little control you have in that world so you're basically paying for the processes and the vendor contracts you get in. There are some perks to having the name and stuff like that but a lot of it's out of your hands. So how long were you in that business about three and a half years and then we decided to sell and we had the rights to a second location so we package those together and so we got out with no losses which is nice. We broke even those good but creating experience but it was definitely. I'm glad i got out. Was it kind of like buying a boat the first day in the last day or the best days hundred percent. Right it actually. It bothered me that we didn't see a second store through. It was the right. Move to get out but i wanted to see like okay. Maybe the first ones on our best store. Let's see it. The second one is another great store and my goal is five to ten stores. Well you gotta pay franchise fee every time you buy one. And it's just you got to be in three places at once it's really. It's a tough gig. Run a franchise especially like you said. There's a lot of competition now. Yeah you're like it's not like i'm sure there's east coast brands that you grew up with everybody knows what a dunkin donuts for instance out there right. It's everywhere so that's like staple in your community when you bring in a new brand that no one's heard of the first year is just like educating people on what you are and then you can start to build the fan base you know so right are too so then. When did you act. You sell your franchises. You say okay. I'm done and then all of a sudden you get to each again. What do you do next. The last four years. I've been doing solar solar panel sales so residential and commercial solar sails. So i like it it. It makes sense especially out here electricity so expensive so i've been doing that but you know during the pandemic i started the podcast. So that's really what i'm trying to focus on and hopefully turn it into sports media somehow or some kind of podcasting career. Maybe you're broadcasting radio. But that's i think that's really my calling is is what i like to do. Yeah so selling solar panels. Do you go to conferences. Are you the guy in the booth and you got your solar panel there and say all right. I'm the come to your home and put these up. You're gonna money yeah. I spent some time one of the companies. That had a partnership with costco in the early in my career. I was standing costco in the booth and be like hey. Do you want a free consultation. That guy for a little bit it was. It was humbling to say the least. Oh yeah i. I mean i've been there. I've i've helped a companies like we talked about. I was with rc. Twenty-one x i go round and trying to sell that stuff and it's hard to be a salesman when you never did it right. You know what i mean like. You didn't learn how to do any of that. And then you know. People are good at not listening to the word no know. I'm like somebody says no. Okay just move on. You know. I mean you can't do that as a sounds. It's hard and it just like when even when you know it makes sense you really have to get people to believe it also. It's not like i'm still in vacuums like it's a real thing that can help especially out here so it's just getting people to sit down with you laying it all out. How like ridiculous. The electric companies are and how much control they have. Then all it does make sense so just getting to. That would be any type of sales outside. Sales is really and here. It's not like we don't get obviously pittsburghers kind of you know. We get a lot of clouds. But i mean soldiers would work. It's just that we're competing with minors. And you know all these other ways of producing energy and solar is available every day. And they're like oh what if it doesn't the sun doesn't come out late. Well that's why you have battery storage. You know what i mean like and you can actually make money if you have solar and all these things and and but it just crazy like the last. What the last six years or so Taught us political wise of of trying to.

It's all baseball but you went to class and wrote papers. I actually did go to class. Yes especially non scholarship guy. Like you'd better do it. Good class warfare. Video definitely helps a lot. I didn't do it really in high school. Did a little bit in college but not really once you start watching video. Then you're like oh that's what that looks like. You know i can see you are. I'm late right now. Getting the ball out of the globe like you can just see more things and some organizations are more of like all right. We're going with whatever you got. We're not going to really develop you in. Some organizations are so analytically driven. And so on you about you know. Everyone's gonna throw the right way and i hate to say it but the pirates were so Mechanical and like. I like breaking down video but not. Let's just to the point where they're making. Everybody feel the same way it was just a and you can see they don't ask what garrett cole always said right child and over they always said that like all these in their back pocket and they can't win within they let them go and they become better elsewhere if there's a fundamental flaw in the in the pirates system you know so i it's not it does suck for being on the way to put it. I don't know why they. They taught that it was almost like pitch for contact. Like your goals. Like what are you talking about you know and and you know we see him go on a career of really what he should have been at the pirates and probably wanted to stay here because people love the city and It just. I don't know why they taught like that but i think we have a new coach. I think he's a little bit different But that's always interesting to me and on film you know because we've we would watch everything practice. The opponents all of our stuff. Old games old quarterbacks Mean the way you can breakdown. Video now is incredible and is baseball pretty much the same now it is i think so. I got out of the game in two thousand fourteen so a lot has happened since then. With yeah and scouting reports are are different but normally we would go over the scouting report of just like what the guys have done lately know. They call spray. Hr or whatever like in the last ten games or something like that and how to attack guys but in the minors. You don't really get you know. No one's really scouting these other teams to help us out. You know you just kind of show up. Here's an here's what you got. Let's see what happens kind of thing so if you go into a game like that. What cheer first pit Fastball every time or not every time. But i think it depends on. You always have to go with what you do. Well right yeah your strength as they say. Good pitching usually beats good hitting. That's how it goes 'cause hittings heart and you got your guys on defense behind you. So the odds are against the hitter but you definitely can tell like where guys are in the box and if you have a good catcher who's paying attention they'll know like is this guy opening front hip too early. Can we get in there on and we need to go slider here or whatever so you kind of just learn based on where the what the hitter what the swings are telling you so when you get to the big leagues. How many components are there is it just the catcher. Is it you the catcher in the coach looking at all the you know what i mean because you know the hitters coming up. You've studied them. But there's so many games i don't know how remember all this stuff so i actually never pitched in the big leagues. I hits in one big league spring training. So i do have that a little bit of experience but not not a ton i never got to triple eight so right below the big leagues right right. So how does that work. Like even in triple a. I mean there's more coaches there's more understanding. And i always wondered that like 'cause you watch these games and is it is it. The catcher knowing the batter is the picture knowing the batter. Whose responsibility is it more. I think the older you get in the higher levels you get aa aaa the catchers care more. Because it's like their staff so it's almost they take it upon themselves. If you get a good one and usually the older guys have been around enough and they take ownership of learning the hitters and Knowing where to throw guys. And that's the other thing some guys in the minors you move around so much you don't get the same catch all the time so you have to Have great communication with your catcher and say like like. This is what i do. Well you know. Let me know what you think in the boxers. There's nothing worse than you have to like. No no no shake off the. It's the worst. There's no flow. there's no rhythm it's it's good to be on the same page catcher. Yeah oh you you'd have to be right because if you outside you're thinking inside it's gonna be a big difference between a strike out in a home run. There's no doubt about that everyone I want to thank you for listening to huddle up with gus. We're gonna take a quick commercial break and we'll be right back. We're talking with brett lorin from.

Today is a former major league baseball pitcher and now successful entrepreneur and has a a podcast called to to tall sports podcasts. So i'm assuming bread that your way too tall for most places and that's why you call it that but So joining me. Today's brett lorin former major league baseball pitcher. How're you doing brett. Good thank you. Very beyond gus. I appreciate it. Glad i could your show now the nice enough to do mine so i appreciate it. Yes so tell me what's to talk like. How did you come up with that name. I'm six seven so you know just general stuff that you can't really fit into close in the stories can't really buy shoes unless you buy them online now. Cars and flying in planes. So it's a tough life for us all people sometimes. Yeah what is that a seventeen shoe if team go not too crazy. Yeah now. you're not like that kid like you go in and say i can't find any shoes and then check comes in and buys you choose. I wish i could meet him. So i love those stories. He's always somewhere buying people stuff as i am. He's he's done a lot of charitable stuff. It sounds like at school. But he's like you to where he's a big franchisee right Aren't you part of franchisee. You came here. Jimmy johns and something else. Yeah so after my baseball career. I could just kind of entrepreneurial mindset and i wanted to. I don't want to be a franchisee. So out here in southern california my cousin and i we both got into franchising rolling. Got it to me. John's in one store and the plan was to do multiple in you know have a bunch of locations but it just. It was the toughest thing i've ever done for sure so Owning a store in running owner operator. It's a whole different ballgame. so it was. I helped my buddy through the pandemic it. His restaurant and i kinda ran the the expo line and because i wanted to experience it right. He was the cook. My kids were out front running the door. And doing all the grub and everything and it's it's not just doing the food it's it's the it's the cleaning it's the prep. It's all that stuff is crazy. It is any like you're hiring. Eighteen to twenty two year old kids to run the show like e. Hope they were the right uniform. You hope they show up you know. You're not their first priority. And they're not gonna care as much as you will at least most of them. It's a job right. It's a first job for kids. Say suddenly training. And it's just. It's a an all those rules that you're talking about. It's just hard to make money in a lunchtime business. Only it's really not like a dinner business. it's just heart. Did you find when you were trying to hire kids. Did you find the kids have played sports or a little more amenable. Listened a little better things like that. I actually found that a lot of our employees. Were women like they just they. At that age they care more. They're more on it like they just a little bit cleaner process. You know you get those college age guys like they don't carry some way. More mature is what you're saying richer. Yeah yeah i could see that. So you said you mentioned southern california. It's where you grew up correct. Yeah what's it like growing up in southern california. Because i grew up in the northeast. I played baseball. Every spring was freezing. The bats were cold. you know. We're pitching indoors till like the mud was gone. We have turf fields back. When i played right so i can't imagine what it was like to be able to go out the first day of baseball. Just throw a real ball mean you get to play every year round so i think that's that's one benefit my mom actually from new york and my dad's from out here so luckily today to california often long island or staten island. One of those. I got to grow up out here. So it's it's great. Like i said you can play everything all year round so you just you get exposed to a lot more sports just more often. You know there's a lot more available and there's just a lot of stuff to do so is great. The weather's always great even during my career. I always thought i would come back here because it's just hard to beat so it is. It is hard to beat But you know it's kind of like For me if i would have tried to go to california living in the northeast all the time it would have been difficult. Because everybody i know's back you're right so i understand that So growing up. Did you grow up in a pretty big neighborhood. Was it a small area or tell me about your area where you grew up. Yeah it's big like plan. Communities of coal sacks. Hoa like all that stuff. So there's this big big big community lots of or it's going on and it does. It's kind of You just there's just so much stuff going on there you got the beach. If you're basically an hour or two away from any type of anything you know like the mountains the desert if you want to go out there like you know people like the rivers you drive five hours to california border. If you do that like there's a lot of stuff you can do so when you were growing up though For me growing up by you know. Get on your bike. Go to your buddy's house. Let's go play something when you grew up in your neighborhood. Was that a lot of it like you. Let's just go to get your buddies or what's most of it planned like a lot of things sports today. Everything is hey. We gotta have a coach. It's all time. You know what i mean like but when i grew up we just went and caught our buddies and picked up the old dial phone and said let's go play they. We're gonna meet the field at ten o'clock. I same same for me you know. Obviously i played a lot organized. Sports too And i played everything i mean. I did soccer baseball basketball. And i did. A lot of stuff never played organized football but we still call each other and get the guys together like play like over the line and stuff you know. Just just the field in doing this. I still malls will do in that way. Yeah no that's awesome so you said you're six seven did egg growth spurt. Hit hit you. I would say in between my sophomore and junior year high school. That's i went from like six two six three two six seven so then by a senior year. I kinda like. I didn't really get my. I guess man strength. Until i was like eighteen. I i wasn't like fully grown at freshman year so once became the senior. Then like i filled out a little bit and so i was much much better athlete. Once i begin. See you're nice. You have some of those growing pains. Because i grew between eighth and ninth grade. You know i'm six four. And so that like whole ninth grade year. They called osgood slaughter my knees. Were killing me the whole year. I remember icing them wrapping them. It didn't matter what i did. Nothing helped them. Yeah my sister actually had that choose volleyball player just in high school college or anything. But she had that austrian slaughters. I never had that. Luckily but i think it was more like just learning how your body works in long lens and figuring out how to have like body control and all those things that you just don't get that so.

"I was like okay normally. I would wait right. Like i gotta tell you i hate the fact. There's only two. Usb cease lots in here. And i knew. There's i know it's going to get better but i had to get it and i just cannot be happy with this for all the reasons. I'm i know you guys talked about it. Everyone says it's really it's just insane. How speedy it is how fast it is and it's just thirteen inches so it's not huge although i'd typically connected up to two or three monitors on my desk here and it just goes. The only time i've ever heard the fan on is i think i was like. I was literally converting some movie or something downloaded from you. Know m caved in. Mvp for something. Like that and i was using handbrake and that was the only time that i've ever heard i've ever heard it like come. The fans turn on and and bogged down just a little bit. But it's still did it just fine. It's been great. I was thinking someone like you. Brett would actually missed the ability to boot windows. Though 'cause i know a lot of it's on the web but still a lot of the stuff in the legal industry is on on pc. I thought so too david. Honestly i've thought about that. Because you know parallels a vm ware fusion and the parallels and they were kind of fighting back and forth and parallels. Today i think is probably the best the better one to go with. And they're doing a great job. And i thought that i would miss it but i don't i keep thinking. Do i need to get this. And i've got my usb thumb drives somewhere that has you know i had several windows Virtual desktops ten and windows seven vista. I mean just because of the different firms. That i would go into boot up anyone that i needed at any time but but but i haven't again with microsoft office being available some of the software being available. I've been able to just make my way around it. Like i haven't gotten to something that i need to run Even some of the old legacy type software david that you and i remember you know with with lawyers using so much of that has the ability to run in the cloud as well so i just i haven't needed it can be for. Brett is case map. Still only it is. yeah Risk base map all right. I'm afraid to this case. Map back when i did. Litigation is a relational database where you can track witnesses.

"Mac power users episode five hundred ninety seven a ray of sunshine with brett bernie. I'll everyone this is david sparkes. Welcome to the mac power users where. I am joined every week by your friend and mine. Mr stephen hackett. Hey david how are you good good. It's it's always fun talking to you and today we have someone else joining with us. Welcome to the show. Brett bernie thank you. It is an honor to be here. I feel like. This is my my oprah moment although i'm not a prince and i don't know dr phil either but thank you so much for having me on brett. What are you talking about. So brett bernie is like he is the super nerd of the legal community guys. It's like i've been to some of these legal conferences and people are like. I heard bernie's going be here in this like prep bernie's coming you know. So so brett is he speaks a lot to lawyers about how to use apple technology I thought we had you on the show. And then when i went back in my notes i realize we had your show to talk about all the conference. We haven't had you as our guest britain. A shame on me but anyway. I'm i'm really glad you agree to come on and you don't need to turn off your dial gang. We're not gonna talk about being lawyers today please. Right right gives a lot of good advice to people that are not lawyers to But he does have a real knack for teaching people how to use this technology. And i thought it'd be great to have the show. We're gonna talk about presenting with your ipad and comparisons of some of the office suites and all sorts of stuff that people need to do with their tech these days so so bread a once again. I'm just so happy came on. Oh thank you. I appreciate it. I'm looking forward to this before we get started. Stephen how's the kickstarter going It's going really well. It's really just continued to grow every day and so we are at In approaching a thousand backers here or two longest time of recording. Which is really mind-blowing. So thank you all for backing it and I got some fun stuff coming. So i'm working on designer with some stickers for the high end here and I got a treat maybe for all backers that abi announcing pretty soon so continuing to improve it. But i'm super psyched. Yeah it's it's really awesome. I just went and visited client and they had a calendar. Hang on the wall. That i was pretty sure. It's going to get them sued. So i took it off the wall and threw in the trash. And he's like what are you doing and i said you can't have this on your wall but i did tell him about your kickstarter so maybe next time i go hill pictures back some day go. Yeah i think it should be service that you provide for your clients so you can order like a bunch of them and go. I could go and take all the calendars off walls. That might get you sued and put on calendars. That won't i love it there. We go It's a good business model. I like yeah. And then we also more policies issues today Bret has been going in. Deep on the iowa's fifteen ipad beta brezza big power user in ipad. So we thought that it'd be fun to kind of check in on ipad now that kind of the initial shock of what happened. I mean a lot of people. Were expecting a lot more. But then they start using like. This is actually pretty good. And so everybody's a little torn on this team beta so that's gonna be the fodder for conversation at the end of the show today on more boundaries. Anyway brent tells a little bit about yourself. Oh my well like i said i've been longtime listener and a follower of both of you gentlemen and it's just great to to be in your presence and thank you for talking but it's exciting also because i have been using computers for quite a while david every time you and i talk it. Seems like we find another Way that our our pass have been similar. Yeah i've mike. Exactly exactly which. Which i love and treasure might very first. Computer was the trs eighty. I remember very fondly You know ten print brett twenty goto ten. You know the very basic programs on that Was fortunate to upgrade to an apple. To see i think it had to be. Maybe eighty six eighty seven. My i remember my grandmother bought it for me because she never let me forget how much she had to pay for it at the time but that was just an amazing computer and i remember specifically that was. I was in high school at the time but all my other friends had commodore sixty fours so we had we had the battles in school. I know some people talk about football and you know sports but no we were on the nerd side so we argue which was better the apple side or the commodore sixty four side And of course i was always a huge proponent of the up of the apple two c. but i remember there was one like print program that i use i. I don't think it was paintshop. I think it was printshop. Is what it was called. Yeah he back in the day. I remember the my dad. My dad was a newspaper so he he designed advertisements and stuff like with the old. If anybody has done this with the wax right. He had a waxed machine. Roller so to me. That was just amazing. That i could do something that looked even better what he did but on a computer instead but that was great and i remember i also had i think it was called the image rider to if you're that it was a huge honk printer but it was so beefy i just remembered it was so it was heavy and wouldn't move even though you know it was like going back and forth all the time and had the huge roller on the side. I mean that thing was just a beast. I loved that thing and none of my friends. I don't think you've been had a printer. If they did. It was much much less than that. But very fond memories. Growing up working on those Those early computers and ever since. Then i've i've been accuser. I still have to dabble in the windows world Just because of what i do and obviously most lawyers in most professionals i work with today are still in the windows world but always. I'm always using the mac side. I remember when i was a kid. We had all these raging battles between apple commodore and atari and it was like it was like the tin nerds in school. That the only people that would like each other would the ten of us so we found a reason to fight with each other over our computer platforms. You know but the season i don't know. Do you collect apple twos. i'd. I don't think i've ever heard you mention that. Is that that you. I've got a couple have a Apple two c. Which is adorable. And a half an apple two e that seen better days Recently picked up an apple three which no one needs to talk about. But i haven't gone to spend a lot of time with them as something that i hope to do. More of in the future because it's a really cool platform. I mean it was so different going from command line to to user interface that you know. The mac was really such a change. What are the apple. Two g. r. g. s. Yes indian steven. Yeah where where does that fit in. Oh boy we've already held this seven minutes and it. It was a late injury to the apple..

You know we haven't talked to you about long time is I don't even know what hardware using these days I mean a still using that. . So rocking that Atari. . Se. . No. . I was part of a startup that went sideways. . But as a result I got myself a new well new ISH sixteen fifteen. . Oh, , what year. . No mine's a fifteen inch. . I got this like a month before the sixteenth in was announced. . So I still have a butterfly keyboard. . That's awesome. . But I use it mostly with my my ultimate hacking keyboard anyways. . So. . I do hate the keyboard I will say when I have to use it as a laptop I do hate the keyboard, , but I do and this is an unpopular opinion but I love the touch bar. . Yeah. . Why I have a lot of fun with the touch bar I have it programmed so that when I'm in the shell when I cd into a directory, , it checks for one of 'em. . I've I have a thing called. How's . it? ? Which is basically Make files for task runners. . And so when I see the into directory figures out what tasks I have that I can run and gives me buttons for them and the Toolbar. . The touch bar. . And I find it just really handy. . I never have to try to remember do I have this setup with Gulp or grunt or maker Rake I just have buttons that pop up for me. . It's awesome. . Now are you customizing touch bar with better touch tool or did you do something else? ? So okay. . So the the customization I just described was all done through. . I. . Term. . Which has escape code you can send to modify the touch bar, , but I do also use. . Better touched tool and have you seen what's it called Golden? ? Do. . You know what I'm talking about. . There's some guy did a better touch tool preset that has like every possible option for the touch bar. . It was too much for me like I wanted more control. . And fewer things golden chaos I think is. . It's amazing. . I. . Mean There's No way you can look at it. . Not Think it's amazing and if you haven't already customize your touch bar I I would recommend giving that a shot <hes> if you have your own customers though. . It will overwrite what you have. . So sure. . Yeah, , and it's really not that hard. . If you got better touch tool, , which I believe is part of set up now. . So if you've got to set out subscription, , you can download that one or just by the APP the also if you have a setup subscription, make , sure you're running the setup version so that developer gets his due for all the Times you use his at and then if you have setup, , you should also download marked to and just leave it running in the background twenty, , four seven. . I was only get you in trouble but. . You could do that. . That's all insane. . But but better touch tool is an APP that you know started out and we talked about on this show often, , but it started out to re map things you can do with the <hes>, , the the track pad, , but then it's like Magic Melissa Apple, , TV remote they just went crazy and <hes> and he but giving you the ability to to remapping the touch bar I think is something that for all the people that are cranky about the touch bar, , my question always them have you tried customizing it to your own needs what about you even have you done yet stuff with the touch bar on your laptop? ? No just because it's such a secondary system for me I mean I have better touch tool doing a couple of simple things but I haven't really gone. . Full bore with it <hes> if I had a <hes>, , this is of course had for Brett is something that you would use more if he could use it again if you had A. . Touch bar for a desktop machine or you could have you know somehow with your keyboard, , you normally use like do you feel? ? Handcuffed a little bit. . It's only available to you in these circumstances. . Yes. . Because like I said, , I'm primarily my laptops on a stand and I'm using my. . Ultimate. . Hacking keyboard. . So when I wanNA use those cool buttons I programmed after reach over. . To the touch bar and I would absolutely love to have a a touch bar <hes>. . An external touch bar I guess that could be closer to my keyboard although it does keep my if I sit too long my shoulders get really tight. . So this constant like reaching over actually keeps my arms limits probably good for my health but yeah, , I I would love an external touch bar. .

"Case against reality by. By Donald. Hoffman is a scientist at nervion. Okay. and. He's not a pan psychic. Penn cyclist. But. But he his a theory. that. The Universe is made out of consciousness, which is, it's not that different from Pants Ike is which says that. Everything conscious including electrons. But to degree, yeah, like like It's like a spectrum of yes, of course there's not much consciousness in electron right again, but anyway what he's saying is similar to that, but I encourage you to read it. Donald Hoffman the case against reality, but he has some very provocative and interesting ideas, but I do think that I think that consciousness is the central. Central question both Both in and spirituality, and in materialism in science, you know they talking about the heart, the heart problem consciousness, an easy problem with consciousness and obviously I'm I'm interested in those things but. If I could, if I could sort of give you my central ideas right now as you know. I I, kind of feel that I'm. I'm not a dualist. okay I I. Don't believe in the mind body. dualist them. I believe it is self is an illusion that the the the the feeling that were self that were among us in our own heads. Is, itself? an object of consciousness and through meditation you can. You can pretty readily dispel that illusion in and have the experience of not being a self which is sort of. Pretty Awesome. Yeah I mean there's something interesting about that. have of self as. As a silo ing as a I'm not connected to everything else. I'm not apart of. Well, I think that that that goes back to the sort of the Western view or the Christian the Judeo Christian view the soul, the soul in the cell for sort of the same thing you know. But but if you. If. You are interested in exploring your own consciousness through meditation you can discover is that? A. Mental objects whether their thoughts or feelings. or Or emotions that They're just objects consciousness in the consciousness? itself is the prior state. Anyway, there's no way to really prove that, but you can experience it through meditation, so that's one of the reasons I do it. I know that it's not it's. Not particularly satisfactory, but I guess. I'm not a Buddhist I, don't I? Don't ascribe to any religion, but I'm very spiritual. And and I think really what it. What it comes down to I don't know what the universe is I mean universities in mathematical. Object. And maybe every mathematical. Exists in some sense. And that this is the one we find ourselves in. Because it's able to support this conversation. I don't know I think one thing fascinated by. Is that most central most most? A mystical teachings have the same central message that is. All is one. The one is notable, and the one is right here. And that's sort of sums it up for me. And is not any one particular religion, but I've looked into the Indian divide of. Ananta looked into Buddhism. I'm I'm really liked as Zo Chan Buddhism. That sort some of the Christian mysticism very similar to Buddhism. And all of those things have are interesting to me, but but Yeah I've always. Thought that that? The similarities in the mystic reviews from a variety of backgrounds being so similar. speaks to something even if it's just speaking to. This is what humans experience. When they? Meditate or our? But even that itself is, is something powerful. Yeah, I look at I think I think the point. Of of piercing the illusion, itself is not. Just to. Rip Out and say wow, that was cool. It's not merely for insight. It's not merely for a high or bliss out. That's not the point of it. The point is that if you can. If you can. Cease Ego identification. Cease identifying who you are without shattering your head. And you can experience the prior condition. Then you can. You can understand that that prior condition convict connects you to every other human being in the world. Right because that's who they are also. The particular chattering. That's happening to be going on is just. It's just a coincidence of of where you happen to be and. In your particular, your particular environment, your particular collection of Of causing the fact that led to lead to where you are, but but if you can. If you can understand that ym is the same as who dustin is the same as my wife is, then what you have is you have compassion, the of understanding for everyone also beings, even so it's. It's an after compassion what it is. Yeah when I was growing up. I always thought of the idea of I really didn't like the idea of. Like dissolving the self like seeing past the self. Because I thought it meant. That you couldn't appreciate. All the weirdness that was these separate things right but I think in the end it actually helps you appreciate all those distinctions more because you realize either not the final thing like we all are connected, but they are interesting like you know you being you and not me is interesting even. It's more interesting than if. You were. Me I. Don't know what I'm saying. I'm just saying like I the fact that you're different than me. We get to have this interesting conversation right, but we can still have an understanding of. Deeper unity of course and you know obviously there's. More. You think about this stop. You know you can get really. You can get really turning around you know. Of course there's there there's a self. Of course there are different kinds of sills right..

"I have a couple of questions from some of the patrons of the podcast. Adams said bad religion was my favorite band in high school and I always found hope hard truths and understanding and songs that most people at the church I attended. Was Seen as blasphemous, so thank you And he said for some reason. Your songs only maybe want to be more like Jesus unless like American Christians. which I resonate with because I grew up in a conservative Christian. House and I I talk about I. I've been thinking about the past couple of years. How much I think punk rock was? A very necessary kind of antidote to a lot of what I was. I don't even. Think is an antidote to a lot of the trappings of the religion that is in, but it was also almost like a solvent that I think was revealing. Something, anti imperialistic things that are were inherent in that movement from the beginning. The had been kind of Golob Dover by. Other things. But I was curious, did you? Like it during the course of Your career with van like. I'm sure you've had a lot of. Christians who hated you guys and the like I? Remember as a kid being like ban, they have a cross. It's crossed out. I don't know if I can. If I can listen to that and. The I don't know. What is? All right so. I found that that a lot of Christians like that religion, but but just as you're saying there, there's certain kinds of Christian. Kind of Christian. WHO WHO LOVES CHRIST MESSAGE? They're not. They're not these kind of like Christian nationalists. or The middle of the Road Christians were sort of it's more of a tribe, a tribe than a philosophy. You know yeah. And Yes, over the years we've. We've had a lot of great support and. you know fans at the music? Live snow that the know they love our band evenly. Also Jesus Christian. Quite, frankly I totally get that because. I don't personally. Think, Jehovah, Israel! So that tells you how feel about Jesus. I think it was I think it was a really I think was a spiritual genius in a a wise dude, you know. That's what I think. Maybe, he believed in Jehovah. Maybe he didn't. But I. And and I also don't believe in miracles right so but I do believe in telephone were stories can change over time so. I'll tell you what is weird to me. Well here's why it's not weird to that Christians like bad religion is that? You know anybody who's serious about is a seeker. There's religion isn't even interesting unless you have a thirst for truth right? Yeah, so, and that's what I am. You know And that's what Greg is also scientists are the best ones you know so. And so and longer songs in. That's what about you know the feeling? A lot of our songs is a feeling of yearning you know. and yearning to know something or your new to. Yearning to be part of something. Or yearning for meaning. And I think that's the human condition. In fact, that's why I love Christmas songs. They all have that feeling. And that's the that's one of the reasons was hard to explain to people why Bab did Christmas album, but that's the reason. Those songs sound like bad religion songs me. Like with. Like they have the feeling you just have to, you know. You just have to. Pretend. They're in French or something. You know they still connect you mankind. But whatever it is that exact words are saying. So That's interesting so I'm curious. What if you had to? Kind of describe your. metaphysically, what what do you think? is going on with everything. You're say I. Don't believe in Jehovah I like. The big. And doesn't have to be one nail down. Thing just kind of curious. Your thoughts right I think that existence is mystery. And I think life is a gift. and. That consciousness is the essential value. Of everything. You other words. I don't agree with a masochistic view of many humanists who say like Stephen Hawking's that we're just a chemical scum on the surface of an insignificant planet in the corner of an insignificant Galaxy. I call bullshit that. Because the universe might be vast. But if there's no consciousness in it. To me. It's worthless. What's the point of any of it if there's not a drop of? Of Consciousness, in the universe. To be awed by. Nothing right so. So. At the end of the day sort of my belief is this. I believe in objective reality. I believe that the only thing we can be sure of is consciousness itself. because. That's the one thing that that we can experience I short right. I'm conscious. Is Consciousness itself not even the object of consciousness right because. As far as I know, our brains are just the best. VR goggles ever invented by you know four million years of evolution right for billion years ago, Our is don't show us. What's out there for real? I mean they. They show us what we evolved to be able to see I'll give you. An example of. That weren't Izumi Right now, right? So look at your own is. Now look away, look back. Did! You see your eyes move. Right. You know. You can't see your eyes move. Not because you're eyes aren't seeing it. Your brain is blanking that out because that would make. That would make us. Unbalanced right. I mean we have. We've a blind spot. In the middle of our are seeing that are blamed for brain blends over. Anyway you know, what are these sort of evolutionary VR devices walking through the universe and I think that you know the the cash value of that. Is Consciousness itself you know, and and we're conscious. and. That itself? is as much of a miracle. It's as astounding a fact as the Big Bang. That consciousness could spring from matter. is in itself as as central mystery as the universe as matter. Springing from the vacuum. I believe that. I believe that to the extent that well anyway. Have you heard of a pen psych? ISM, yeah, I I. Don't go for Psych is however. I will say there's a great new book I read called. The.

"I was curious. Were you still? Engaging in meditation practice during those periods, no. I don't think meditation practice is going to be effective when when you're on mind altering compounds. Issue! I, mean I think. It's sort of one or the other I I honestly. I think Certain altering compounds. Achieved, something similar to what you, what the goal of meditation is, which is yeah cutting through the illusion of self? And for certain period of my life. Those are the things that I was. Enjoying. The psychedelic drugs. And they're sort of you know there's no point. Meditating when you're on PSYCHEDELIC. The psychedelic is doing the work. You know that's the shortcut. To to transcend himself, or or or you know? Cutting through ego identification, which is what I serve regardless to. Not Meditation should have a goal. But, but that's you know. That are the result. That's the insight that you're shooting for, and you can experience that with psychedelics. And But without doing any of that work, and then it's not particularly lasting other than you then become aware that. that. That there's a state of mind as possible. Yeah and. But, but my my struggles with drugs really. So much those when I. Got Addicted to narcotics and No I mean when I was addicted to narcotics, I wasn't meditated in, but. when I got clean. Meditation helped me a lot. In terms of his, I was really. Sort of spiritually. And emotionally bankrupt when I was really at my bottom. and. Really needed. To fill that spiritual void more than ever in meditation is was. Was the way I did. Yeah. I feel like for a lot of people if they don't. Know more about you. They would be surprised. That one of the main songwriters forbade religion would be so spiritually interested and I'm curious. What What were you seeing going on when you started about religion that? I, mean a you guys ended up being called, but also wrote. A lot around this idea of the negative aspects a lot of I. Think would be kind of western. Kind of Christianity. What were your experiences with those things that? Prompted OUGHTA. Shirt Yep. Well. When we started the band and It was during the beginning of. This sort of new. This new movement of televangelists. so. You Know Jerry Falwell junior is now I. Guess it pretty influential Guy, but when I was a kid his Dad Jerry Falwell. was just coming to prominence. And in Lynchburg Virginia. I knew about among my best friend had moved to Lynchburg actually. I would simply, but but he was on television. and. I think there's a Guy Jimmy. SWAGGART was on television. and. Tammy Faye Bakker was out there were there false eyelashes. And and these people were obviously not. Promoting Christ's true message that there's nothing mystical or particularly loving or Or transcendent about their message, it was pretty vulgar, and at least you know two teenage me and so. So that was sort of something that at that you know these. You know me and Greg or science nerds, and we the writers in the band. And we were you know. He was fifteen and I was seventeen. And, so we're sort of just discovering our our idea, our values and our. And our philosophies, and it was an easy target, so I'm saying you know. We're suburban kids and we were pissed off mainly because we were outcasts, you know. We were not popular. Kids were smart, nerdy kids, and he had just moved to. La and you know I think all teenagers have. pissed off the rebellious, but we don't really have that bad so. Know that was an easy target and we. We decided to name our band. Bad Religion and you know we. Like the Voice of God or government has got voice of. God is government. That was. Those are our first. Attempts at You know social critique in political protest. was saying that we thought televangelists were full of Shit, which obviously were it was sort of A. Sort of an easy target you know. Well Yeah I mean. It's easy in some sense, but they're all. Those forces are also extremely powerful in. The American system in some sense. The time they were new and. and. And somewhat shocking and PUNK rock was shocking to and we were. Atheism is also shocking and I think we wanted you know sort of. In a position ourselves as Sort of these you know. These young iconoclastic critical rationalists. Even though you know, I think I went on. The band got poked onto. The show called new eight theater, which is one of the early. punk rock music shows had local bands on public access television. And with with the host Jimmy Ivers asked me. what what are a? You know. What our philosophy was. I think I said that. We're Zine anarchist. which you know. I I wasn't a Buddhist and I wasn't an amicus slightest not. Near a teenager, a punk band you just you know. A lot of trying to be. Provocative. But at the same time, we were nerdy kids into science and philosophy so gladly Navia van bad religion, because it became a really fertile umbrella under which to you know to.

"For him to let Brett go to Atlanta, as champion you Tiki rarely do you think you really knocked them out? I was at work. No. And that was one thing that bothered me with wrestling with shadows, because that's where they changed the story now either the story was not the first time a wrestling with shadows. Got it wrong. But the story has never been told that way. Now, let me tell you where this is off. And this footage is even out there on YouTube, when Brett goes into the office with Vince throws the punch, there was multiple people in that office including Shane, and that was one of his biggest problems with what Brett did. He's like, look, I understand how we handle things when, when there's a screw I understand that you and I were going to have a moment, but you hit me in front of my son. And I let you do it. I won't let you do to get that was a very real thing, Vince, the black guy, and there's even a camera on that when Brett comes out in the pink and black, and then, Vince and Shane comes out, and I think it was Pat Patterson in the room with them. And after go, rewatch when wrestling with shadows did it, it was Brett was getting ready to shower and Vince came in. It was just the two of them, so somewhere. Somebody got this off, which Scott hall picked up on Scott hall said the whole things will work are working. Look at these. Details at constantly change. Brett was in on it from the beginning at I don't I think Scott hall is wrong. Okay. This is Scott hall. This is what he is proclaimed. Right. That's my great claim to fame. I was independence at night. Don't really I went there. Yeah, Montreal's a student at the time in high school, and I know idea what was going on. And I saw him smash the TV monitors afterwards and do the WCW then I went home on the internet and read all about it. I wasn't a wasn't a smart back then. And that's another thing that Scott hall brought up was that WCW goes, look, I'm just telling you in the heat of the moment that tired, and that fatigue and everything going, you would not think to look turn. No. Where the camera was and do that. He goes Brett was in on, I don't agree with him. I do not think it was. Right. I'm sharing the story, though. And since this whole thing is a bit conspiracy. It's fun to look at it from all angles. And that Scott hall's, I, I have no idea, how even got on this topic if I'm being honest, but I'm enjoying it thoroughly. Did you watch AWOL because you just informed me that I don't have a contract with mind spending. That's what happened. Did you watch w? Yeah. I did watch it really. I tuned in just after the battle royale, which heard opened the show and ordered it garbage. Yeah. Wow. What did you think? Very good. I also like you know, that's a star driven business much like Vince is doing with the Saudis right now where he's just gotta bring the biggest names. It was it seemed like everybody was a free agent in the world made an appearance of some regard one year which I that professional resident I considered doing that. When I was a sophomore college actually, went out to the WCW was called the power plant, which was a training out. Sars arch was there. Dr. I mean he worked I was an all college all American division with that year. Okay.

"To Brett Q Mark Larson. Let's welcome to the program, a friend of all of our programs here on sixty K F and B. He is James hers law professor, author political immediate legal analyst, and even more available at James, Hurson dot com. James, thanks so much for coming by. Hey, it's great to be with you. Happy kickoff to the Memorial Day weekend. Indeed and to you as well. We have a big announcement last night. Bill, bars basically getting the keys to the, to the car to take it, where it must go declassifying. What he must declassify working with Bir with Dunham to find out what's happening. What do you make of this? Are you are? You excited. Is this a little bit of Christmas morning for James? How're how you feeling about what we're seeing here? Well, I think what's really important is the fact that the Democrats both Adam Schiff, and Nancy Pelosi are trying to get the public to buy that when we declassify things and we released documents official documents that and we let the public see what is actually going on. That, that's a cover up. Right. I find that it's down actually, bad intrigues may because it smacks of the Saul Alinsky technique, the other, I think it was Jerry Nadler, that said and others have said they use the term weaponization. Yes. Which I think is very interesting term for them to use. When you consider the fact that we have uncovered what appears to be a plot to weaponize, parts of the government that deal with law enforcement and deal with national security intelligence matters. So it's, it's the solids keep technique of pointing the finger at someone else in accusing them of what you're doing as far as Bill bar. The memorandum that gives him thority also instruction to consult with the heads of every single intelligence agency. It also tells him to follow the rules in terms of you know what should not be declassified. In other words similar to his role in reviewing the Muller report and determining what had to be redacted, if there's something that would compromise now national security would disclose sources of methods would undermine privacy rights would had grand jury testimony. He's going to do the same kind of redaction, if you will. Meaning not declassify those portions. But with that being said. We are going to see something that really will tell a great deal more of the story than what we see right now, which may well, be typically iceberg, and, and particularly when we see the, the entire FIS it applications certain three. Oh, two reports of these are the reports written by FBI agents, after they interview someone. And we want to see the three oh to certainly Peter Struck was involved in and the three. Oh twos. And we're going to answer the question about what the heck happened in London. In the summer of two thousand sixteen when George Papadopoulos was meeting with someone that was described by Muller as being a Russian agent. And now we know who was an informant for an agency of the United States in essence a spy. And so what we built our use that word spied when when, when he was in testimony and, you know, we wanna find out spying took place, it's pretty much. We, you know, we have enough information to know that between when you get a warrant to wiretap that's a form of spying. When you hire people to infiltrate undercover. That's fine. The question is what embark testify to is there a proper predicate, which really means is there some kind of probable cause that a crime was committed. Well, it's going to be hard to say that's the case when they when. There wasn't a crime at the end of the day, after two years, thirty million dollars, five hundred witnesses twenty eight hundred subpoenas thirteen inquiries to foreign governments or go on and on. And we say thirty million dollars, by the way. Right. If there's five hundred witnesses each one of those witness says head to spend hundreds of thousands in many cases over a million dollars in legal fakes. So when we think about the amount because has cost it's an it's an astronomical amount. Would you add all that together? And you add up the number of people's lives who've been turned upside down by this. So it's, it's gonna be something that we're going to follow. And I know you are, and your listeners will very closely at each time. Bill bar picks up a rock and unveils whatever is. That rock. So, so let me ask you this, because we're starting to see a number of people popping up in the public domain. We've seen I've seen on two occasions, just this week over on MSNBC, James Baker, not, not, not the famous James Baker of the Bush family alliance. But James Baker the one time counsel for the FBI. He's out making the rounds trying to kind of clean up the mess on aisle. Three we've seen John Brennan come out now with with, with quotes running in the Washington Examiner talking about that. He's concerned that, that there are assets that we had intelligence assets that we had in the Putin government that are going to be unmasked by doing all of this your reaction to these sorts of roadblocks, and he sorts of people who are out trying to rehab the story in advance of of bars investigation. These are some very nervous people who are lawyering up. You notice also they're pointing fingers at each other. You know, particularly, you know, we talk about combing Brennan and Clapper. I mean these people were at the center of the cyclone. Yup. They're all I'm sure lawyered up now. I find it striking that both combing and Brennan, according to reports voted as communist in the past. Yes, I just find that. I mean I just. I it's, it's extraordinary. How do you even find? I know of I know a lot of people I don't know single person who was a registered voter as a communist now, but that the head of the FBI, and the head of intelligence in this country or we're both voting communists. But in any case, these people. Yes, they're appearing there. I think the they're going to get more shrill now because I is similar to the kind of frivolous that we're hearing from democratic leaders who are basically trying. Now, all of a sudden, it's really dangerous to, to basically, conduct an investigation and seek transparency for the public. But of course, at the same time, they're saying that it's certainly okay, having investigation that has focused on one. Individual and that individual's personal records. Right. I emphasize personal right going back in time to win. President Trump was not into government seeking his Bank records, personal Bank records, personal tax returns, personal, background and meanwhile while they're trying to open it up. And we have Obama judges, basically bombo, pointed judges opening those drawers up. We still don't have former President Obama's college record. No. We do not. So, you know, it's just I, I do think there's a double standard, but at the end of the day as a country, we really need to know why it was that operation crossfire hurricane this, this operation that appears to involve, not just the Justice department, the FBI, but intelligence agencies of our government. That, that was used. And that people that worked for intelligence agencies in Britain. Were informed about this, but our president was not fully informed. And, and you know why it was that a Hillary Clinton DNC paid for opposition research, set of memorandum that we call the dossier, how that was leaked to the press unlawfully that it was used to obtain surveillance warrants put from a secret court. Apparently unlawfully, we need to find out who was involved and why that was done. It has nothing to do with partisanship. It has everything to do with the integrity of our country of our intelligence services of our Justice department of our law enforcement. And, and I think Bill bars dedicated that this and he's the right man at the right time to make history. Okay. So let me let me get your reaction. In our final moments here. There's a story, moving Jack episode bitch over at one America news revealing this. It's been picked up by Sarah Carter a number of other people PJ media this idea that Samantha power may be one of the origin points of this, that she was unmasking hundreds and hundreds of calls that were being made between American officials and foreign officials specifically the Israelis talking about Palestinian settlements. She was on an unmasking frenzy. And as part of that frenzy, she appears to be the person who unmasked. Mike Flynn having a conversation about Israeli settlements, and then she referred that to Sally Yates with interest in looking at the Logan act now. That's kind of odd. Right. The United Nations and Basseterre unmasking, all of these American citizens, having conversations about policy in Israel. Feels a feels a little deep state. He to me, Jim. I would say very Dave. Very near the submarine to get that day. And there is there's a number. So glad you brought that up because the unmasking is part of the pattern of Obama administration. And we what unmasking is essentially is revealing the identity of people that were not the target of surveillance, but happened to be in the conversation and we know from verified reports that the Mike Flynn's entire case. Yup. Came through unmasking, and what again, unmasking in extrordinary thing violates, but basically, certain rules and procedures and statutes, and there has to be good reason to unmask and Samantha Powers' isn't even someone who normally would do that. And she has a record numbers, you said of unmasking efforts. Supposedly related to Israel. What what was this about? That's a whole nother story. Susan Rice is involved, the masking. I mean and look at we can't Obama has a pattern of spying, he spied on the Associated Press James Rosen and James Rosen's parents. That's right. So, and he has a, a history within his administration of having departments weaponized such as the IRS. Absolutely. And so it. It's not like a big surprise down that the Obama administration would in fact, misuse. Power. That's Trump and Samantha Powers' using powers. I suspect declassified documents are going to answer that question. And that's going to be very so great stuff from James Harrison, great analysis.
