If there's a four it's the same as one so I'm going to ring the bell as he does the four things and you're going to hear the bell ring three times start on the star of decisive decade. I'd like us to. I can use this form to forge a political momentum and consensus to drive concrete actions in four key spears of energy industry and the ocean. And i want to be clear. This form will will will complement not substitute for other forms. In fact with respect to energy industry we were closely align our efforts with the work on the forums like the clean energy ministerial and the mission innovation. Both of which. I'm proud to say the united states will chair next year. Plan to kick off these efforts by bringing together ministers in january to discuss clean-energy goals in and empower transport industry building sector. We also want to focus on. Oh on ocean. Initiatives that advance of our ocean conference and and next february. This is a great example of the entire speech that he did. The man is rambling. You'll lose focus over what he's saying it. I mean it's just it's wallpaper what i mean what it is i was. I was driving to austin. I hung out with the former new york bank. Remind me of something important. For you. And horowitz toes. Driving off. And i heard the whole speech and so it was interesting to hear to not see him so i timed it. When he conked out after fourteen minutes and then he started to unreal soft and talking like this and then he wraps it. Up the ending they remote control the insulin pump or the pump. Whatever that jackson doom and whip pops up and he's good at the end And it was. It was pretty much obama speechwriters but without obama oration you know he was all trying to this big and parton stuff that obama could make sound great and president biden. Just just an. I almost drove off the road of boredom. However this was not the case in the mainstream media analysis which is part of what we take a look at this the eurasia group president ian bremmer used to be a guy who would hand out pallets of cash in iraq. But no now. He's the eurasia group president. Let's see what he has to say about fabulous speech. Well the thing that i found most profoundly interesting about this speech thirty minutes long. China was not meant mentioned. Not once he did say that he doesn't want a cold war but the factory was in the was never mentioned. Let me pause you there. It was never mentioned but it felt like it was constantly implied like he was talking about. That's chuck todd. Almost implicitly issue even though he never said the net better than a great and yet when you talk about responding globally to covert and you talk about responding globally on climate and the chinese leadership tells john kerry will not be a waste on the desert. There's no coordination between the two largest economies. There's no trust. They have no idea how to get there. I thought the more important speech was not biden's today. It was the secretary general's earlier where he described the world. The world's leaders and that's first and foremost fighting and of course as sleep walking towards the abyss now to be fair. That's not very fast and it's not with intention analogy but it's very clear that a speech a perfectly good speech by the united states that may maintain the status quo. It's not moving the needle in a way that on these issues these global crises. We're talking about increasingly desperately need to show that kind of leadership.

Speech was the secretary general about sleepwalking into the abyss. Like well let me find that speech. I think it was confused because there was no mention of sleepwalking into the abyss.

And there was a book written about 13 years ago. That examined is various articles. And the author of the book points out, in my Own words, As I explained in my book. The marks approach journalism is modern journalists do today, that is, he was unencumbered by commitment to actual news. Reporting, instead, is reporting would shape the news around his own opinions and ideology. So this is an American Marxism. You wonder about today's meeting and trucked out and so forth. These are their true mentors. And the author of As a fellow by the name of Ledbetter. And he said after 18 48 marks learned the power of counter revolution. Began to believe that Existing systems of government and economy could not be overthrown until the relatively informed and organize proletarian. To be mobilized to do so. It became clear with every passing year. Many nations such organization was decades away if it existed at all. Try to point out the Marx understood the power of mass communication, and they need to control it and shape it to frame events and opinions. In other words, the purpose was to propaganda is not informed. Have a good little bunch of American Marxists and pseudo Marxist in our media today.
Biden Says Guns Are Source of Violence yet Fails to Study Facts and Root Causes
"So tomorrow, Joe Biden will have his Paula bureau that surrounds some cobble together a bunch of words on note cards where he'll talk about guns. As the source of violence in this country. Guns. It's like the filibuster. We got to get rid of the filibuster. We got to get rid of guns. See, they don't want to dress the people behind the filibuster and what they've done over the decades. They don't want to address the people who pulled the trigger on the guns. No, no, no, no, it's the guns. It's the guns. Even though we know more people are killed in this country with knives. Those are the static. A Who cares? Facts don't matter when you're debating the left. They just don't. It's their agenda. They drive the narrative. They have morons like Chuck Todd out there. Pushing the narrative because they're good Little Democrats, soldiers They're not going to talk about the root causes of crime. You know when it comes to immigration The The second. Birthing person, aka the vice president. Sugar to Guatemala. We can. Hey, you know, we got to get to the root causes and we had really a good Good meeting. I would call it a success if I regretting myself. Can we get to the root causes of crime Now? What are your white racist? Oh, Guns. Guns. Okay, It's guns. The Democrats have answers to nothing. Because they reject reason and knowledge and science while claiming to embrace all of them. So it's going to be guns because that's easy. It's easy to control. You.
Washington (Com)Post Video Encourages 'White Accountability Groups to Combat Racism'
"Oh, my God. White accountability groups. People to call her on things because she's white is Washington Post. You don't get it. You don't get it. I don't get it and I don't get them. And Rassmann, Menachem. We gotta gather white people. Get together about race. Okay, let's go. Wrong things that we have been taught in history class. I realized that I needed to go back and unpack and Reorganised everything that I had learned because it was completely through a white lens. This is exactly what these books Are all about critical race theory is all about and now the Washington Post is all back. Unbelievable. Go ahead. Most of us in doing this work have experienced this where there's a period of deep shame for being white, and I have no shame for being white. Being a red blooded American male. Being who I am. I have no shame whatsoever. And bothered anybody. Don't worry, Chuck Todd says. This is a figment of a Republican imagination to get ticks and hits and and and just just to stir things up. And don't worry. Nicole Jones or whatever the hell are name is? Oh, yeah, yeah, Same thing. It's all a conspiracy
Understanding the Two Best-Selling Proponents of Critical Race Theory
"George Lynn Oy, Research professor of Public Policy and Political Science, University of Maryland, Maryland describe CRT through the writings of the two best selling proponents. Robin D'Angelo and Abraham X Candy. CRT begins with the perception that race is the primary way to identify and analyze people and consequently posits a racial hierarchy that supposedly exists with whites on the top and blacks at the bottom. Individual behaviors in significant because everyone in America functions within a society of systemic racism, structural racism and institutional racism. CRT affirms this perspective by pointing to various existing racial disparities, which it claims that the result of racist discrimination. So, according to this perspective, efforts by public and private organizations to enforce civil rights laws and employment, housing contracting education, etcetera. They're either insufficient or pointless. CRT offers two responses to this situation. First, all whites must admit their culpability by confessing the advantages white supremacy confers on them. Failure to do so reflects white fragility. An instinctive defensiveness, the white race said to display after they have been trained about their investment racism. Second, individual whites cannot hide behind any personal history of nondiscrimination. The desirability of race neutral laws or policies because the collective action of their race has been oppressive, and it goes on, folks. This is what the people Who believe in this are saying and writing. And reaching millions of people and reaching a kids in classrooms who have no choice but to listen to this stuff. And for Chuck Todd on Meet the Press and NBC To act like this is manufactured when the evidence is choking like smog. And for this full Cornell Belcher. To try to try and turn it on Republicans and Donald Trump just shows you what a sleazeball this guy is.
Professor John McWhorter Explains Why 'You Are Not Racist to Criticize Critical Race Theory'
"And the headline of his piece on his own site. As you're not a racist to criticise critical race theory dismissed those pretending that if you don't like what's happening to our schools, you're a jingoistic moron who doesn't want kids to learn about racism. And it's It's a long article and in the article He points out, and he calls the elites the Allex. E. L. E. C. T s Says the elects commonly insist that critics of CRT would feel differently if they read actual foundational articles about it. But the issue is what is being done in CRTs name? Not what some articles contained decades ago. Early writings by people like Regina Austin, Richard Delgado, Kimberly Crenshaw, who you'll all learn about in American Marxism. Simply hard leftist legal analyses, proposing a revised conception of justice that takes suppression into account, including a collective sense of subordinate group identity. These are hardly calls to turn schools in the mouse reeducation camps. Fostering star chambers and struggle sessions. Actually, they kind of do do that, But let's go on. However, this indeed is what is happening to educational institutions across the country. Moreover, it's no tort to call it CRT in shorthand when these developments are descended from its teachings. And they're architects openly build themselves as following the tenants of critical race theory. In language terms evolving quickly Witness of late how this has happened with the cancel culture and even woke to insist that CRT must be properly referred only to the contents of obscure law review articles from decades ago. Is a debate team stunt, not serious engagement with a dynamic and distressing reality. It is a debate team stunt. And that is exactly what Chuck Todd is all about. Here's a debate team person who is filled with stunts.
Meet the Press' Chuck Todd Is Propaganda Operative for the Left
"I am a constant And relentless critic of Chuck Todd on Meet the Press. The Sunday shows are propaganda operations for the left. And the Democrat Party. They typically have a rhino or some kind of Republican there to offset the host and two or three other guests. But it's obvious where they're coming from. And if you read on freedom of the press, you know that most of these people are Democrats or their family members are Democrats. Such as in the case of Chuck Todd. We've talked about this many times before he was a campaign operative for Tom Harkin and college. I don't know that he never graduated college and then also his wife. Is a very, very highly paid consultant. As we've talked about before, and she was also a consultant Bernie Sanders, among others. So Chuck Todd is a Democrat. Those are his instinct says there's beliefs that's his soul, and that's his mind. George Stephanopoulos is, you know, ran the war room for Bill Clinton. And viciously attacked women. Clinton efficiently attacked when they were there to come forward and criticize him. There's two Sunday shows right there. And they're not alone. There's many, many more Many more. Forget about Republicans. There are no real conservatives who are hosts on any network network inside cable network Sunday show. Checked out is the worst. Because he's the dumbest of the bunch. And is the worst because he's the most Aggressively aggressive. You've heard a passive aggressive He's the most aggressively aggressive. And he embraces every one of these American Marxist movements that have been spawned of the Karl Marx ideology, every one of them.

"It is is that aspect of it. Is he beholden to the person who has his ear in that moment to a two to a particularly damnable degree like is he more beholden to the person sitting next to him then another gm or another owner or is this just of course he is and so but and so we need to structure ito get more structure to the front office. I think you know my understanding of cubans total bullshit. A large reason why he thought the story wasn't fair was framed correctly was that he doesn't feel like he is that he is someone. Talks to end takes input from a variety of sources at all times Framing and the reporting that. I did through the sources you know. I had. That story painted a different picture. And that's the thing about journalism writing story like this is that you're always gonna try to balance perspectives and narratives in the way the different people. See it I'm just like there is. There has to be an absolute truth to the situation. But i don't know if there's a single person who can give you the absolute truth you know. Mark mark. Cuban is going to have his own level of truth in his own framing of. What's actually happened just as a lot of people within the front office and you know perhaps people who are you. Know more supportive of donnie nelson. Over the years those people are also going to have their own framing of the events. That happened that the actual true events that are reported on they're going to have their own framing of what that means and it's really hard at you know when when you're you know that's that's the hardest part of of doing a story like this and it's something. I'm still reflecting. On whether i accurately balanced the two sides. Even as i reported factual details is that it is really hard to get the exact right framing. Because there's nobody that's going to share the exact truth of of how it should be frames. And that's a that's a murky job especially in an industry were information shared. You know if there is a if there's a desire influence or reason to share said info bad that gets really hard to to nail down to the absolute courtrooms of of what's going on. And so you know i i don't i don't know you know. I do think i believe the the reason i oppose the story i did. It is because i came to a point. But i i believed the framing of of the sources. I talked to that it had reached a point that you know this guy. Awkward pereira's that the gambler analytics i in the two thousand eighteen had an undue level of influence on the team and as many circling issues that were causing Causing the the dysfunction that existed that that he was a huge part of it even if only in some ways he was vehicle to show all these competing interests and you know people in narratives and powers in through lens clashing against each other. So you know. According to the story. I wrote according to the people. I talk to Yes i do think that mark is influenced by a singular person. He's he's listening to but also changes. It's been donny. It had been donny most often in the past. It had been very carlyle for one summer. Chandler parsons where bats. The person cuban was listening to kind of coming up with with team decisions and what the team was gonna And so it's either complicated person and you know only. He could tell you the truth whether whether he does have a broader perspective of fluency takes in but you know based off the actions in based off people who are very close the situation in seeing how it unfolded yet i think by my understanding and belief through the reporting is that you know he does lean a little bit too much into any single person busier at the moment. The piece opens tim with this anecdote from february. Where bob bulgaria. So you talked about is sitting courtside and luka doncic the mavericks star comes off the court. Vulgarity makes a motion him to kind of luca interprets as calm down. Calm down and donna says you don't have the right mr gambler analytics guy to tell me what to do. Here's that there. I heard on dallas radio. The fact the mavericks didn't have many fans in the stands made those kinds of interactions more here -able and see -able to people than they might have been if the stands were packed as they were before and now after the pandemic is there any truth to that i think there is. I don't think or i can say definitively that's not why or how i i heard that anecdote i you know it again. This is story that initiated internally and wasn't something that was brought to spy by leaks sourcing even though once once we started david diving in it was clear that had all these details at spread league-wide. But i think that's fair and in conversations. I've had people who were not sources all And in could it be but you know people who have understandings they you know in in conversations about they've asked me is similar questions like so you just heard about this because everybody's everybody's business righted like is that how this game about um in no i don't think it is but you know even. Espn share the detail. That we didn't have where lucas. Look at rick carlisle During a game at one point and says who's in charge you were bob and i. I believe my understanding of how they describe. That anecdote is that it was something that was heard by the team. They were playing that night and then that is our kind of proliferated around the league. And so i think that you know i. It's it's true in in not specifically how i came to the story but certainly when we went to lead sources starting cured from leak sources and they also had a lot of similar. You know facts and details that'd be published. I think it helps spread it around the league about manner. I will just ask a follow up here to the pandemic keeps you guys away from players and i assume away from road games too in a way that you might not normally have to deal with. Did that affect at all the reporting of the story the fact that you were somewhat more remote.

"Over overwhelming me progressive. I just don't know if that's true. And of course we need to talk about white women according to exit polls which you know. Take it with a grain of salt. They still voted trump fifty five percent of them which is higher than the last. Go around after seeing everything. He's done why are they still voting for him. Well i think internalized misogyny as an incredible drug. I mean i don't get it but i think there's a confluence of factors there and i think there's there's gender there's race there's class. There's family dynamic. There's societal expectations. I don't understand it. Because i think trump has made it clear in the four years that he and before that even in his campaign. He's made it clear how he feels about women. So i don't totally understand it but yeah they did not come through. We lecture them for four years and they still did the same thing pretty much so often care and they got upset about being called. Karen's well apparently they didn't want to do anything to no longer be called a care and they just wanted to complain about it. So congratulations to getting it for four more years. But i mean. Exit polling is flawed. Like we don't really know for sure yet but it does seem like you know. It just didn't matter sometimes your hatred for somebody else's more valuable to a voter than your self preservation and. I think that's what happened here. Fair for okay. Sashi before we let you go we have to know. Is there any reason to be hopeful right now. You know we saw an increase in voter turnout. Despite gerrymandering in kobe restrictive voter registration laws. But is there any hope. You're getting right now. i don't know. Can you go outside and hug your mom. Because i can't so i think forever. Yeah like not. Currently i mean like the margins for this victory will still be very thin like it's not a landslide it's not a crash it's not a repudiation of trump. It is merely a think the population of this country being tired and are kind of like. I'm just sick of this shit. And i don't wanna deal with it anymore and i'm cool with this other guy who's like. I guess. He sort of subscribes to a certain values. I have and he's been in politics for a while. And i know his name and like so i mean no i mean like it's the country is still an incredible chaos. I mean there's going to be so much cleaning up to do in the next little while we still can go outside and winter is coming so you know nobody ever asks me that question because they always know that. The answer is no have no optimism. Because i just like lack that Enzyme it sounds nice So if any of you guys can bottle it for me. I would love to drink some. But not really i mean. It's like a weird dark time. I mean i'm happy voter. Turnout happened but part of the struggle with feeling hopeful about this stuff. Is that foundationally. Good things that came during this election came because a four years of chaos so people needed to be tortured for four years for this kind of voter turnout because otherwise complacency was sort of the name of the game. well as always saatchi.

It's undeniable all the holiday. You missed out over all the years. Yeah I think we all knew we were always missing. Didn't you know you're missing out all the time. Of course it's just more fun. I don't know man I've had some good Hanukkah moments. Some some Jelly donuts Markaz. They have food there to rob. There's food on the other side. I went to talion. Christmas is an food to feed Mussolini's army at the most Jewish Christmas bagels and lox and smoked whitefish. You love a Bagel. gawks juice celebration for the for the ages. Yeah that's a that. That's the one area. I'll never lose Jewish faith on the smoked fish on a Bagel. Just it's fucking perfect. Sorry sorry to disappoint my right wing audience but I I love it but yeah no is great. It's a lot of fun man because like last year you know my my daughter was born in December so this was her second Christmas. Technically but last year is a newborn's a few weeks old and and it's just. It was such a pain to traveling with. A newborn is just. It's a nightmare and you know she doesn't even know that you're just pissing. Everybody else off to it's just inconvenience for everybody involved and the baby doesn't care at all. It's like a few weeks old. The baby's concerns are like. Where's my mother's boobs? That's it's about it. Segregated between people have babies and people without I mean separate but equal sure that sounds reasonable to me reasonable legal order which is what we're all about on the show But this year at one year at one year old that one year and a couple of weeks I mean the baby just loves it. LOVES LOVES HANGING OUT WITH THE FAMILY LOVES GET PASSED AROUND LOVES A opening presence really into it a little bit more into the wrapping paper than the actual presence. But still like you know she gets an Elmo face lights up and it's just so much fun so it was really really great and I Love I love my wife's family. I'm lucky in that regard. She's her family's really great. I I like everyone of them. We just have a lot of fun. Drink and talk and chat and it was great. Great time supposed to like. I think we're supposed to hate your in laws right. Isn't that the like kind of Hacky joke right that you always hate your mother-in-law but that would really suck. I'm glad my my wife's family is awesome. I love all of them. Thank God life would be a lot less fun if they sucked but anyway yes I had a great time. I hope all you guys did As well I watched it's a wonderful life at one point forgot. How good that movie was? I don't fucking I've ever seen great movie great just black and white and You know does you never saw is that when Santa comes to town but he's not there at Santa. Now it's not the guy from drastic park no no thinking miracle on thirty Fourth Street. Okay once it's a wonderful life. It's the one. It's the one where he breaks. Down for fractional actional reserve banking at one point. I was talking about that last episode. which is one of my favorite scenes in a movie? I mean they do it from the point of view of fractional reserve banking being great. Yeah well Joe. Your money's over with Steve. It's building up the farm and Baba Dubov course can have your money now. It's like a guy who spoiler alert say a guy who was put in nineteen forty seven. So if you know if you haven't gotten around to see it gets this partly on you but it's about a guy who He he ultimately like gets to the point of trying to kill himself and then his guardian angel comes down and He he wishes wishes that he was never born and then he shows him what life would be like if he was never born. And then you know just celebrating now. Everything's thrown out of whack. It's a very bad life when he's not for everybody else for every contribution that's right and then he's he's like. Oh my God I wish I was born. I wish I'd never wished this. And then they he goes back to his normal life and then really appreciates his family is real dickhead to his family. Until he sees what life would be like he was never born and then all of a sudden he loves his kids and his wife and and then a bell rings and Angel gets his wings. I don't know it's just a good feel good movie. It's the better time when America was Christian and white and there's a couple of black people. There's a couple black people in the movie but they're not very consequential but Yeah no just a but it is amazing to see is really really is amazing to see a movie from the forties and to see when you watch it like just like obviously Hollywood is Hollywood. A mutt suggesting movies are real life. I don't what I'm trying to say is I don't think there were actually guardian. Angels running around on Christmas in the forties but it does give you like when you see a movie from the forties. It gives you a little feel of what the country was like what their entertainment was like and Matt. It really is such a different country just such different country already Than than it was. You know I mean sixty years is whatever is you know. Longtime who seventy years a long time. But it's not so long that like you know it's you know it's your grandpa like that's how long ago that that movie is. It's like one person. There are people who are living today who cover that whole time time period. It's not that crazy not even for people my age. It's your parents basically anyway but yeah really really great Christmas Christmas so so we have a whole bunch of like you know little bit of scheduling problems this week and obviously we usually record Wednesday recording Thursday. Now and there's a bunch of shows recording We're a little bit pinched for time. I'm sorry I know I'll get some shit about a bonus episode but they're all bonus episodes so you can't really complain about it But there are. There are a few do things that I wanted to talk about. So let's let's jump in for today's show so the first thing that caught my my I because I haven't you know I was celebrating Christmas with the families. I'm sure lots of you are and I saw as I was coming home this morning. That Chuck Todd. Our favorite our favorite guy in media chuck. Todd was trending on twitter. And you know it's pretty funny already. Is that just the world world. We live in now when you see Chuck Todd. WHO's looked meet? The press is the longest running I believe it's the longest running show on television. It's the longest running new show on television for sure it still carries with it like meet the press just kind of has this feel like it's the news show this is like the you show that represents media in America and Chuck Todd of course is the moderator and I believe the political director at NBC News Sir Ns NBC. Something like he's got some big fancy title and but in today's world when you see Chuck Todd is trending. That's all I saw was trending Hashtag Chuck Todd and you just already know right right inside of me. I get filled with a little bit of excitement. Because you know this is GonNa be delightfully embarrassing like it's not like Chuck Todd's trending like and people are like what a wonderful journalist Tatas you know. Of course it's something just hilarious. And he he was interviewed by rolling stone. And there's been a lot of a lot of backlash over this interview both from the left and the right and I thought we could. We would go through the article and take it apart are ourselves because I think as usual with these things we might have a slightly different Critique than the typical because right wing or left wing critique of of of this interview but I did think it was interesting and a little bit of a of of a window into into the mind of of Chuck Todd and a guy who runs his right at the center of the mainstream media the corporate press. Somebody who's like right. You know one of one of the biggest names if not the biggest name There who's supposed to be you know Mr objective journalists not like you know Sean Hannity the or Rachel Maddow or someone like that. This isn't just some guy who has a late night opinion based show this is the moderator of meet the Press Okay so so. This was from rolling stone. It's up on Rolling Stone Dot Com if you guys want to check it up and it's titled how Disinformation Spreads According to Chuck Todd and the subtitle is chuck. Todd has had a front row seat for the spread of disinformation. Here's how he sees it happening. And the media's role in it so oh I by the way I really agree with that with that. Subtitle's let's start with the first mistake. Is that people go to non traditional news sources you're originally they only came to NBC and CNN. Got The best hake cake. I would just say with that subtitle. I really do agree. I mean chuck. Todd has had a front row seat for the spread of disinformation. That's for sure I. I will agree with the pieces by Peter Wade in rolling stone I I would agree with Mr weighed on that. Chuck Todd. It's been real close to the front you know. He's seen a lot of the disinformation and then of course here's how he sees it happening. The media's role in it so let's see how he sees it happening and the media's role in the spread of this information all right to the peace piece. So this is Peter. Wade's article and it's an interview as well so chuck. Todd had a front row seat for the spread of disinformation while hosting. MSNBC's meet the press whether it was Kellyanne Conway using the phrase quote alternative facts to dispute report to dispute media reports about the crowd. Size at trump's inauguration senator John Kenny Senator John Kennedy blatantly using using Russian talking points to blame crane for interfering in the two thousand sixteen election or or Senator Ted Cruz spreading Russian conspiracy. Theories Todd has seen it all. I spoke with todd about the erosion of truth ahead of the upcoming in December. Twenty nine th special edition of meet the press that will focus on journalism and the weaponization of disinformation and feature guests. Such as Marty Barron executive editor of The Washington Post Dean Back executive editor of The New York Times. Masha Masha guessing and former. US Ambassador to Russia. Michael mcfaul okay. So the Just to start with so so jumping on the fact that Kellyanne Conway used the term alternative facts. which is you know of? Course they're taking it out of context but right away if you're talking about the spread of disinformation and it's just of note that there's three examples that he throws out the three three examples. Are that Kellyanne Conway. Said Alternative..

"Two. Coming up. The of meet the press on NBC Chuck Todd is joining us and everybody. Also on the show ROY wood union is gonna fix the NFL. And you'll find out why you should be very afraid of a man named lollipop, but first let's catch up on today's headlines. Venezuela. Venezuela. One South America's most affluent nation. It has recently descended into chaos and violence kind of like how best buy is usually a chill place. But then on black Friday someone gets murdered over tosa. And that's not a joke, by the way. It's a true story. I'll miss yong-chol Billy. But I told you that was my toast, anyway, Venezuelans have been taking to the streets to protest food shortages and collapsing economy with ten million percents inflation, the men responsible for this is Ben as waiters. Authoritarian leader nNcholas Maduro, the people tried to vote him out last year, but he rigged election. And so now an opposition leader has stepped up to say Busta of island power struggle playing out in Venezuela opposition leader, one Guido swore himself in as president declaring the President Nicolas Maduro was unconstitutionally sworn in for a second term on a stage in downtown Caracas in front of a crowd of fouls. Thousands already five road. One though raised his right hand and administered his own oath of office. I swear to formally assume the powers of the national executive as the president in charge of Venezuelan. This is pretty historic a thirty five year old just swore himself in as the new president of an Israeli. Yeah. The world's first selfie inauguration. Very millennial very and not only ton of Venezuelan support one wider. He also has the support of major world leaders, including Trump Merckel Trudeau Theresa May Antoni the tiger. This is a big deal and now moving onto another phony prosperous country that is not falling into unrest. The United States. It is now day thirty four of the government shutdown the longest in American history and the effects continue to pile up a major border security conference has been cancelled flood recovery efforts have been stalled and the government is so broke. The secret service has now been replaced by mall cops and on top of all of that. President Trump state of the union address is officially cancelled overnight President Trump blinking in his state of the union staredown with Nancy Pelosi. The president writing the late night tweet. I will do the address when the shutdown is over. I am not looking for an alternative venue for the state of the union address because there is no venue that can compete with a history tradition and importance of the house chamber. Oh, look at that Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi facing off and Trump blinked first, which of course, we knew would happen because Nancy Pelosi does not blink. Personally, personally, I think promoting the state of the union will be good for Trump's approval rating because Americans are very supportive of him. Not speaking is joy now for many people to shutdown still feels abstract especially if you don't rely on government for systems, you know, people like what do I care? I'm flying first class. Well, enough along pilots flight attendants air, traffic controllers are expressing growing concern saying air safety is deteriorating by the day, the government shutdown drags on their unions issued a joint statement saying they can't even predict the point at which the entire system will break. Oh, hell, no. They can't predict when the system.

"I thought that's at least relevant to how that person has to do their job. So I chose to aggressively question this person on other stuffy said and just kept me out of it. But you were thinking about yourself. Of course, I was I can't I'm not no I fully mitt. I was angry. And I was I was like I was in one of those. But I do turn into the hulk. No, I just was like did you see that? That's the beginning of the how it is sort of like I like. It's the only time that I was like visibly. I was both nervous and upset and figuring. I don't wanna lose my cool. But I really wanna make him feel uncomfortable. I did I was like this one that one went too far. And I wanted them to feel the pain. Sadly, this person's never been on again. And but doesn't that put you in an odd spot does in the following sense though that you try to be objective? You try to be neutral you call them. Like, you see them you take a lot of pains not to give away. Whether you're democrat Republican who you vote for and everything else on the president calls, you SOB. And then let's say maybe a couple of days later, you say something critical of a policy or practice or a statement. He's sort of bought himself the ability to say, well, he's just mad. He hasn't liked me. Because I tweaked him on Twitter. How do you deal with his forcing you to look like perhaps you're not objective this because he's maligned you this is the trap that he set for all of us. And I always say, I know the trap. I know he set the trap which is remember was Steve Bannon line very early. The media is the opposition party. So you're in this position if you don't respond, then his false accusations. Go unanswered, and if you do respond, then you're acting as if you're the opposition, right? So it is a trap. It's check made. This is where I just feel as if. And I would say it was about a year ago. And my staff can tell you this where I sort of got this philosophy. It was somebody else's advice. And I can't remember where I read it. But I thought you know, what that's the writing answer just say what you see. Period. And I just this. My job is this. I'm going to say what I see. What's what he's doing? Why he's doing it? Give context Wisey attacking the press. He and explain he setting a trap here. He's making it. He's attacking us in the press. So that if we criticise explain it to viewers be fully transparent say what say what you see. And also, I don't care if people don't like me as much as that on one hand, you're saying, oh, you human beings. Of course, you do. But as the journalists Chuck Todd host of meet the press, if I'm not it's not a popularity contest. Right. We have to realize journalists. If you're if you're. Real goal in life is to call them. Like, you see him, then you're probably going to piss people off a lot so embrace it. I've done I've done little things to sort of realize that that's the case. Okay. I've retreated a bit from social media. I still do it. But I'm not I don't socialize in official Washington. The way I think we used to look I think one of the fares criticisms of the press in general, and I think what made it easy to bash us is that we did give the appearance of being a little too chummy with the powerful. And I think one of the ways to make the twenty sixteen election is consequential for our future in ways that we haven't thought about is number one embrace the fact that hey, is there anybody been better for civic engagement than Donald Trump in the last thirty years. I mean that turn out the turn it's been the voter turnout was unbelievable little bit like saying has anyone that's been better for doctors recently than cancer Z's, exactly where the CDC without disease..
"chuck todd" Discussed on The Axe Files with David Axelrod
"Meet the press. Well, let me just finish up on Russ heard he, he died. Suddenly, I, I mean, I think many, many people felt that loss acutely not just because of who he was an all of the relationships he had. I count myself among them, but because he represented something that was that that you know, that that sense of he wasn't 'institutionalised and he policed the institution in some ways. It's interesting. I think. It sort of in the way we revere Cronkite and a previous generation, and Tim is revered in that same way, put David Brinkley that same sort of mount Rushmore aspect of it. And of course now with with how fractured media is, and frankly, how aggressive the campaign is how members of the press are treated like politicians. Now, as I always said, I'm I now have more empathy for the elected official than I ever did because I get treated. I get background search. You know, people dumping up on your wife who who's been involved in politics at becomes an issue xactly. It's so I sort of like, wow, this is not something I've been used to, frankly, you know, I have no idea if Tim we're alive today, who knows how the way media, the way the world would treat him or not. But I do think he did. He is sort of that. He was the last of an era that doesn't mean there aren't going to be new era's. That doesn't mean you, you know, as you get older will start talking about the good old days of somehow. This will consider this stuff. The good old. I remember Chuck Todd. Yeah, we'll we'll just remember the, you know, the. The the, the way Obama pain there is that sense of recent see bias there, but there's no doubt Tim feels like the end of the sentence that began with Edward r Murrow. Okay. On, you know, you talked before about how he the sense of regard that he communicated for people who are in the arena. That seems almost quaint now, I mean, you you right, you know, you and others try and treat the people across the table respectfully, but but there was a sense that he conveyed that that seems sepia toned almost about about people who are in that world. You know, it's interesting. I used to say that ninety five percent people. One other great privileges I had to work in hotline is that we used to interview these candidates early on when they were running for the house of the Senate of their first or second trips to Washington. They do it off the record meeting with hotline, Charlie cook and his teams to it Rothenberg the longtime political handicappers. Yeah, backed. I, my colleague von Ververs remembers are Barack Obama meeting better than I remember our Brock Obama made. But we had it in December of two, you know, for the US Senate and here's this skinny guy comes in. I remember because I was I was working for, yeah, Ed. So. And I used to say, you know, going through those meetings, it was a reminder, ninety five percent of the people that come to Washington came here for the right reasons. You may not agree with their philosophies. The came here to do good in what they believed was good and I and I'm with sincere and I stay, you know, and look, people get corrupted by the system. I am concerned more important people wanna use politics for selfish meets to get rich to get famous. They're not interested in it for this. I'm worried that it isn't ninety five percent anymore that maybe we're down to eighty percent are doing it for the right. Yeah. I don't know what to do with that. I do think that we've celebre fight our politics in such a way, and you know, maybe it's the natural. We've always had celebrities, dip their toes in politics..
"chuck todd" Discussed on The Axe Files with David Axelrod
"And now from the university of Chicago institute of politics and CNN the axe files with your host, David Axelrod. Chuck Todd, many years ago was up and coming young reporter for the hotline the forerunner of all these Washington tip sheets to follow. Then as now he was incredibly passionate about politics and into all the arcane of campaigns, which is to say a kindred spirit. He would become a protege of one of my favorites. The late great Tim russert at NBC and later the White House correspondent for NBC. During the first couple of years of the Obama administration today, he sits in restaurants, exalted chairs, NBC's political director and host of meet the press. I sat down earlier this week with Chuck in Greensboro, North Carolina to talk about life and sports. And of course politics. Chuck, Todd, we're here in North Carolina together for an event, and instead of at Wrigley field where the playoffs where the one game playoff with Milwaukee's going honest, we tape tape this, but you can be acted right now basically not looking at you looking. Yeah. Now Wilson says up here, bottom of the sex of the man who are. Strangely, you're a kid from Miami. Yeah, who is a dodgers fan and a Green Bay and Packers fan, and I think we should start by explaining that. Okay. All right. I know I get this all the time at the head, scratches and all this stuff. What people seem to forget Miami as a four-point for four sport town now, hey, it's one of the, what are we sixteen of? I think proximity that are forced sport when I was growing up, we were a one pro sports town. We just had the dolphins. There was no basketball. There was no hockey and no baseball fact the the assumption was in baseball. Will you have spring training? Why do you need? Why do you need a franchise of Florida got overlooked for long time? So as any kid is any son who looks up to his father just stops his father's teams. My father was got moved to Miami when he was a kit from danger from waterline. Okay. For those that don't know, Waterloo sort of I always say, described as small city, big town, but you said it properly Waterloo. I always had this argument. With Barack Obama. Remember it's Waterloo Waterloo. He said, I don't know what the difference is. Not one is Abba while do. You're saying one way you're singing, Abba, you're singing, Abba. You ain't winning a vote. Try to explain that. I wish you were with me so, so he's he. So he was a Packers. He's a Packers fan. It look water, Lila, Green Bay, Wisconsin, same town. You know, in some ways and he said, grownup, Chicago was the big city and raised the way there was a chip for for a lot of Midwesterners and smaller towns. There's a chip on the shoulder by Chicago. So who was the bears big rival? Well, the working men of Green Bay Wisconsin or is that and let me give you my dodger story. So he became a dodger fan. Dad was the Yankees fan, this fifties. Let's be realistic. You're Dodger's fan or Yankees fan in America. Right? Right. Unless you grew up near Saint Louis, so you grew up, you know, grew up near Chicago, but you know, other than that and my dad met ROY Campanella is a six year old. No kidding. In a hotel. I wanna say it's the Drake hotel in Chicago, but it was in Chicago, and my grandfather encourages he loves telling this story to curbs my dad go up, you know, like every. Grown man does with their kid. They'd really liked to go meet said, superstar, just send the kid and they just stand by and let the kid do all. I remember I got call your Stransky's autograph that I didn't know who has was dad was into. Yes, you name it. Mike? Yes. Kid played Florida state baseball against university of Miami. So yes, he's to hang out and you see Miami baseball games anyway. So you met ROY. Campanella and campy had just won the MVP. So he's, they guess he was the face a Wheaties. That was you on the Wheaties box? Yeah, he wasn't. He historic? Yeah, it with the time. That's right. You know, people forget broke, Campanella, African-American catcher, MVP nationally..
