The Story of "Cocaine Bear" Is Coming to the Big Screen

"Everybody's talking about the new movie coming out called cocaine bear. Cocaine bear. I talk about this movie when it before I was a movie, but it was optioned and when there were attaching and director and there weren't even actors cast, and I said back then, two years ago, I can't wait to see this movie. Because it's based on a true story of a bear ingesting so much cocaine that he died. But this story is amazing. The story of cocaine bear begins with a body in a driveway. This guy, Andrew Thornton, the second was a paratrooper, a police officer, and a lawyer before he turned into he turned to drug smuggling. And he was moving loads of cocaine into America from Columbia, and he would take his sesta 404 up in the air and make these runs and he was having a ball. But law came to an end in September of 1985 when police discovered his dead body in a driveway and Knoxville, Tennessee, and he had been heavily armed, he had on a bulletproof vest. He was carrying thousands of dollars in cash and also oh, by the way, 77 pounds of cocaine valued at $14 million, which was stuffed into a duffel bag, strapped around his waist. And he might have gotten away with it again, but his parachute didn't open after he jumped from his airplane, and then authorities found the plane about 60 miles away and that began the investigation. Thornton had the directed the aircraft toward the Atlantic Ocean, and he settled on autopilot figuring, I'll jump out now, I have all the Coke on me and the plain old crash in the ocean and they'll figure the guy who was piloting it is dead, eaten by sharks, whatever. But turns out he wasn't the only casualty. In his final drug smuggling moves, let's go to November of 85, two months, a month later. Some hunter finds a dead black bear in chattahoochee national forest, a 175 pound bear. And right near that bear was a duffel bag that had initially carried around 77 pounds of cocaine. This bear came upon it. And he got into the blow, and he overdosed. And as it's already later figured out, by the way, the flight path was, et cetera, that this had to be the plane with the drugs on it, and the guy that died and they put it all together.

Bernie Brillstein Sad Tale of John Belushi’s Last Days

"We're sitting at the palm one day and my manager is telling him, hey, this is my man AJ, we got a lot of things planned and gossiped and TV show that and Bernie was listening. As he's picking food off the plate, and I said to him, can I ask you about John Belushi? And my manager Howard, you know, kind of kicking my knee under the table as if to say, come on, come on. No, no, no. But I could tell Bernie would be cool. And he said to me, yeah, kid, what do you want to know? And before I could ask a pointed question, Bernie launched into how difficult it was at the end to manage John the addict. Not the talent. To manage the addict. And one story stick stuck with him forever. And you could sense it when he told the story. It was kind of, I guess, customary for managers back then to well, maybe John asked him whatever, but Bernie had kept a bunch of money in his safe that John had earned, and he kept a bunch of it in a safe, so John wouldn't waste it on shit. He was looking out for him. And at one point, during his really crazy, hazy drug days, he visited Bernie and he wanted that money from the safe. He asked for 1500 bucks in cash, and Bernie said, no, no, I'm not going to give it to you, John. You're going to waste it you're going to blow it on drugs, bullshit. You got a lot of things happening. You got a movie script. You got two movies waiting for you. There was a movie he wanted him to make called the joy of sex. There was the fatty arbuckle movie and Bernie was thinking about all that money coming in. And 1500 bucks on a Friday night or whatever the fuck it was. No, that could be a bunch of problems. But John kept bugging him. It's my money, Bernie. It's my money, Bernie. I'm not going to give you the money. You're going to use it on drugs, John. But eventually, he relented and as he said to me, what can I do? It's his money. He earned it. How could I keep it from him? So he relented and later that day he gave Belushi the cash and the rest is history. He spent that money on a bunch of drugs, cocaine and heroin, and that's how he died later at the chateau marmont. Injecting a speedball into his arm. So Bernie always felt somewhat responsible for that death.

Was Aaron Carter Denied Life Saving Medical Intervention?

"Something I wanted to go up with you today because the more I read about Aaron Carter's death, I'm not shocked by him dying. You know, let's see, as we said the other day, they found aerosol cans in the bedroom and the bathroom, which obviously says that he was huffing, which I said would be part of the death. I also said, one day when we get the reports back, you'll probably find maybe some cocaine, maybe some Xanax, the typical stuff, I don't think fentanyl was involved. I don't think crystal meth was involved. I think his body just got tired of being high. His body got tired of being sick, tired of being tired. You know, a lot of times I listened to people who gave up drugs and their 30s or so Hollywood people like Jimmy Kahn, and I mentioned the story. He was always having a good time for years living at the Playboy mansion. It's the first time I've heard somebody say this because when I listen to him do this interview, I was in the grips of my relationship with that drug. And I'm like, well, how's this end? What the fuck do I do? It's really hard. It's hard to stop doing it. So it becomes such a social part of your everyday life. What do you do? And Jimmy Khan very plainly said, I got tired of being tired, man. I got sick of being sick. And he just went and eventually I did the same thing. But it takes a while. Everybody operates on their own clock, one guy told me, you'll put what you're tired of it. You'll quit when you quit. No one's gonna force you to quit. It's just not the way it goes. And unfortunately, many people are right when they say that. That's why a lot of relationships break down. A lot of marriages break down, and a lot of people die because before they're ready to quit, they do too much and their body gives out. That's what I think happened to Aaron Carter. I don't think we're going to see a whole bunch of drugs in his system. I really don't. I think he'll have the typical ups and downs in there. And with the huffing, it's not good for your heart. And we'll see. But here's what I want to talk about. The fact is that Aaron Carter could have been saved, maybe. Had this house sitter who works there, this mysterious house sitter had allowed in these neighbors across the street who were medically trained. A medically trained couple. She even packed a defibrillator because she heard our police scanner possible dead body. There's a code for that. I think it's 9 27 D and they gave the address and she knew holy shit, that's Aaron's house. And they ran across the street and his house did a wouldn't let them in. 11 o'clock in the morning.

Cocaine Bust on Denzel Washington's "Equalizer 3"

"So for me to hear today, drugs on this set of ecologic three, cocaine. I'm like, come on. You know, what would you think? I mean, this is 20 years ago. But still, at first, the story was told that one guy who worked on the catering team who was never on set, by the way, the publicists wanted everybody to know. The catering, they would never on set. Yeah, okay. This one caterer died of a heart attack one night coming out of a club or a restaurant. And they kind of came with the police came and the ambulance came. They took his body away, the whole thing, and when they go to the hospital, they're taking the guy's jacket off his pants off and a few packages of cocaine fall on the floor. Now the cops are like, wow, wow, okay, wait a minute. Now we've got to go investigate, you know, now that you have claws to go to this catering company and see what the hell's going on with it. And they do just that. And they find a 120 grams at the catering place. Now I'm not sure where in the vicinity the catering place was to the set of ecological three. I'm sure it wasn't that far away. But you know, okay, they weren't on set. But if you know anything about movies, they still have to be working and preparing meals for that movie, 8 hours a day or more. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, so what was to stop them from taking the blow with them and selling it on the side on the set? I mean, yeah, they could have been selling them out of there, catering company. Sure they could have absolutely. And that's probably more likely. But what's to say they wouldn't take 6, 7 grams to the set, actors have crazy hours. You know, staying up all kinds of hours,

"Is here. Alex, you've written extensively about the drug issue. I know we're not here to talk about that. Just what's your immediate reaction on that story that in a middle school in Seattle, they have a lot of times for kids to go do hard drugs. I mean, I think it's a reaction to any parent or any person would have. It's insane. You know, we've moved to legalize cannabis in this country and the early returns are terrible. In my opinion, and instead of learning from that lesson, we are now, you know, the same people who push that are pushing the legalization of psilocybin, mushrooms, and other psychedelics, and it's only a matter of time before some of these people try to decriminalize or possibly even legalize heroin cocaine and methamphetamine. I mean, they've indicated that's where they want to go with this. The reality of the devastation it causes doesn't seem to bother them. It's very, you know, it's sort of liberal slash libertarian meld that I just don't understand.

What Friends and Family Do for Their Famous Friends

"So when driving through Colorado and the cocaine, we had a little bit less at that point as you can imagine. And it was in a baggie. And there we are on route 80. And a state trooper pulls behind us, and he's following us now. Now, like I said, we had God bless America taped to the back of the windshield. But still, a couple of dark skinned guys with Baldi's and a yorkie, driving through Colorado, that would be enough for a cop to at least follow us for a while. And he's been behind us for a good several miles now. He's not moving off our ants. That'll make you shit a brick when you're carrying a lot of dirty stuff. So suddenly Neil says to me, you know what, I think that I know there's a gas station and a car wash up here very soon. I've passed it and I've stopped here a number of times because gumballs made that drive before. That was my first trip. I said, wherever it is, bro, find it and let's go there. So he says, you know what? I'm going to point to the car wash. Hand me the code. I said, no, no, no, I got it. Just do what you got. He was hand me the Coke asshole. You're famous. You have a TV show. You can't hold this or you'll lose everything. You know what? He had a point. So I handed it to him. And he drives into the car wash, but before he stops the car, he says, go into the store and get us some sodas and get us some shit to eat some candy and meet me when I'm done with the car wash. This is sure. And wouldn't you know the cop pulls into the fucking car wash as well? And he stops right behind gumbo. But he isn't going to car wash. He stops and goes in the store. Now he's looking at me up and down and I got the dog in my hand. So after the wash, I hop back in the car and the cop is following us again. And I say, Jesus Christ deal it's curtains. I said, where is it? He says, don't worry. Just look straight ahead. I see where's the bad rose? Just don't fucking move. Just look straight ahead. Stay calm. A few minutes later, the cop puts his siren on. I'm thinking, we're fucking dead. We're going to jail in 9 11. And he speeds past us. Even gave us a little nod. Like, got to go, boys. I mean, I breathed a sigh of relief like you can't imagine. I go holy shit. All right, where's this stuff? Give it to me. He says, hold the wheel. And when I do, Neil leads to his left and fish is in the back of his pants and pulls the bag of Coke out of his crack. Now that's what Friends and family do for famous people. Okay?

A Catholic pro life speaker who was previously accused of blocking an abortion clinic with those charges dropped, by the way. And so then the United States Department of Justice run by the kraven Merrick Garland sends in a S.W.A.T. team. That's right, a S.W.A.T. team. Mark, how could this man's name? Let's get a picture of him up on stage on screen. By the way, if you listen to conservative media and they are not at least focusing one or two segments on this story, send them a message. This is one of the most outrageous things I've seen in quite some time. Father of 7, Mark hawke, with 7 kids, had his entire home rated as if he's some sort of narco drug criminal as if he's some sort of cocaine paddler as if he's smuggling fentanyl into the country. Now, in a scenario where you believe he did something wrong, of which I see no evidence. He did anything wrong. Zero. The civil case was dropped against him. The local charges were dropped against him. Why don't they just show up via his attorney on Monday morning with one or two agents say here's a warrant for your arrest? Sir, will you please come? Now, instead, they go shocking awe into this guy's house. As if they're trying to take out Osama bin Laden.

Nobody's going to leave Twitter to go to a platform that's mimicking Twitter and it's a complete echo chamber. The graphics aren't as good as glitchy and then it's not available on all the apps.

In my opinion, if you want to do a money grab, you just convince everybody, the best thing should slice bread, you make a lot of money and then they crumble and fall, you made your money and you move on to something different. It's like a pump and dump and stocks. You pump a stock pump of stock pumping stock or pump with mean coin or something and then you sell yours at the top when they drop everybody lose their money except you.

The Myths About Electric Vehicles

"Two more of the myths are facts that people do not want to tell you about when it comes to electric vehicles. We've already went through the gamut of realizing that electric vehicles are going to cost us a lot more money than what they want to tell us, the average electric vehicle right now is $66,000, which is more than the household and the average household income of an American. These people are out of control, is nowhere in the world you think that you're going to influx all of these electric vehicles and demand electricity from the grid, and somehow that's going to change the game. Solar panels ain't going to help you. You know you're not drawing solar panels if you're charting your car overnight. Are you? The solar panels don't have sunlight. So you just draw in all the energy from your solar panels overnight. It's not sustainable.

"It's something smell stinky to me. About trying to thrust our society into 100% electric vehicles. I just offer common sense. Now I'm going to give you guys ten facts as to why electric vehicles advocates are completely out of their minds and they will never tell you the truth. But just off face value, just thinking about a process in this stuff. We know that electricity don't come out of thin air. It's not as if you could just reach to the ether and pull down as much electricity as you can. That's not the way it works. And then just imagine we live in a world where there's a large percentage of vehicles that do not operate off of electricity. Now, just like any other product pushed to the market, when you influx a certain product into the market, there's what we call a demand. And then there's a demand on the system in which it takes to create this particular product. So if you say that I'm going to make every single vehicle an electric vehicle, you're going to now go from going to the gas pump to using the electrical grid.

Agents in Arizona sees a mind numbing 1.57 million fentanyl pills, 114 pounds of cocaine that were hidden within secret compartments of a tractor tractor trailer. The vehicle was attempting to cross into Arizona from Mexico at the nogales port of entry when the customs and border patrol agents, why not they just say border patrol, where God takes take that back agent stopped stopped it for an inspection. So at this trailer rig had this truck not been stopped, you're talking about potentially thousands of lives. Guys, I think in 2020, approximately 20, 50,000 people died in the U.S. due to opioid overdoses and 2021, if I'm not mistaken, the number was approximately a 100,000, I believe slightly over and it says here there was no word if the seizure was a record breaking bus earlier this summer.

Why You Have to Watch Apple TV's "Blackbird"

"I didn't want to buckle and subscribe to Apple TV. I'm sick of paying $10, 8 $7, $12 for all these different streaming services. I said, the hell with Apple, I'm not doing it, but I did because I wanted to see two shows I really heard a lot about. One is a series called blackbird. With taron edgerton Ray Liotta in his last role, in which he so great in, but I have to say he looked very ill in this series. And Paul Walter Hauser, this kid, this guy Hauser, doesn't get enough credit as an actor. He plays a serial killer in a way I've yet to see be done. I mean, the choices he makes are incredible. You might have seen him play the security guard Richard Jewell, the instant hero after foiling the bomb attack on the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. He was amazing in that. But on this series, he's, I mean, this guy is otherworldly. He's one of those actors. He's very heavy. He can only play certain roles, but Jesus Christ, he's he's so good. Doesn't get enough credit. Plays a serial killer in a way I've yet to see be done. The choices he makes are incredible. This is a guy who comes from a comedic background. But he steals every scene he's in with Taron Egerton. And that's not easy because edgerton, especially in this film, is really great as well. Don't base your opinion on him for how he portrayed Elton John in Rocketman. Dump. It's night and day. And to add to all of this, this series is based on a true story about a guy who gets a ten year prison sentence for selling cocaine, but then he's offered to have his sentence greatly reduced if he can become friends with this serial killer and make him admit to him all the girls he killed and where the bodies are buried. The feds took a shot, they tried something in a bag of tricks to see if this kid was a star football player in high school could go to prison and befriend this serial killer and have him open up to him. It's great. Great. I love outside the box thinking like that. Many people thought it was a crazy idea. It was wrong, you can't do this. Fantastic.

I'm heading back to my room one night after reading bukowski on the beach and having a cocktail at some joint. And back then with my back hurting like crazy, keep me in constant pain. I had taken a couple of partner sets, and I wanted to shower, lie down, get some rest. And I'm waiting for the elevator, and just as I'm getting on, a girl gets on behind me and doesn't notice me. It's Kate moss. It's unmistakably Kate moss. Walking behind me, I get to go to my room and she passes me and goes to the room next to mine. So now Kate Ross is sleeping in the room next to me. Very weird feeling. Never mind exact type of woman, but it's a little exciting knowing that she was right on the other side of my dead post, right? I didn't have the guts to ask her to have a drink, so I lied in bed, tried to relax, wait for the pills to kick in. And then I heard the unmistakable sound of a razor blade on a mirror chopping cocaine and then Kate snorting it like a Hoover vacuum cleaner. I sat up, no way. This can't be. Am I just lucky to have the room right next to her and to be able to hear this? I am right now one of the biggest gossip columnists in America and maybe the world's most famous and noticeable supermodel was right next door, chopping up a bunch of Coke, and this went on for hours. And this is Miami Coke. Chop, chop, chop. Can't do it. It was insane. This was the night I tell you that story with a director able for our call me at 4 o'clock in the morning and said, how much life you got you? I said, I'm up. Come on by. I told him Kate was next door doing blow. He's like, great. I'll bring her over. He never did. But his idea was for us to write a new version of like dolce Vita. The beautiful story about a gossip columnist and the life and the woman he loved and in Rome. And I said, well, Michelle Obama is a distant cousin of mine and my mother's side. I'm a gossip columnist, and out of anybody, I should be the one to write the new version. And we went to work. Abel arrives with an ice cream cone in one hand and an egg sandwich in the other. That's Miami. A few minutes later, that's my enemy. That's what you can get at that hour. An egg sandwich on ice cream. A few minutes later, Abel has some lackey of his delivered Cuban coffee to us so we could stay up. There's a little spot, a little spots in Miami of Collins avenue I think. Great little places that holes in the wall that delivered Cuban coffee, a little Dixie cup, that was so powerful. They feel you like cocaine. And we kept on writing before you know what it's noon. Abel makes a call and has this amazing food delivered from a great old Cuban spot in south beach called porta sagua, love that place, not fancy at all, best Cuban food in America. Oh my God, I never been there. Abel's like, I'll order. You'll be happy. And he got something called perico. Perica was like eggs, ham, turkey, green pepper, tomato, onion, and like a nice loaf of Cuban bread, sliced in half, buttered, toasted, and pressed down. Like, oh, just amazing food. He also got a fried grouper sandwich. I never tried that. That was decent too. I'm out of my mind. We stood up mapping out what the script should look like. Mind you, Kate moss is still doing cocaine. He was like, yeah, so instead of Marcello in Rome, it's you in New York City. Instead of Anita Ekberg, it should grow Cara. Instead of a nut on me, it's your Puerto Rican ex-girlfriend from Rebecca. This is easy. We'll divide it into a prologue 7 major episodes in an epilogue. I could write it tonight, but you'd do it all directed. That was able for our. It was very surreal shit. But as good or as great as a director Abel was, and now he lives in Rome and he's doing well again, if you've seen the bad lieutenant, the funeral, the king of New York. He's made some really good New York films. I follow him outside blinding sun naturally 1230 in the afternoon in south beach. And I watched Abel walk away and he checked two different payphones for change. And I thought, what am I doing? I can write this movie, but able isn't at that place where anyone would take him seriously because he was so deep in his addiction. And not too long after that, we bump into each other in New York City, I was with Joey at the time and Abel wouldn't take no for an answer about driving him back to his loft in Brooklyn. You gotta come, you gotta come on to show you stuff. Ten minutes, ten minutes. New York to Brooklyn is not ten minutes. It's at least 35 minutes with any kind of traffic. It's nighttime. It's over a bridge. It's a whole fucking thing or through a tunnel. He wanted to go to my progress. Now at this point, Joey was in college taking cinema classes, so enable us to, you want to come to my house, Joey couldn't get over. He said, oh my God, this is fucking able fraud, bro, we gotta go. Go go. We get to his place, there's some guy waiting there for him. Very disjointed evening. Eventually able in his buddy of his just begins smoking crack in a pipe. Like this, they took it out like they took out a box of checkers.

"Early. It's a very different person. Now, Kate has dropped a lot of her old party loving crowd. She used to hang out with Rita Ora. Mick Jones of the clash and now she hangs out with like sober people like DJ fat Tony. I'm not really familiar with him, but I read about that. By the way, Chris Rock is now on the Rita Ora train. Yes. Word is he's now banging Rita Ora. Reed is like a blue blazer in your closet. She goes with anything. Read is always ready. Her name was even mentioned in the Harvey Weinstein saga. I get it. She's supposed to be a lot of fun. Decent looking chick has enough of her own money. So she's not on the tape, so to speak. But her dating history is crazy. Rita Ora was with Robert Kardashian and to that I say why? What the fuck does Rob Kardashian bring to the table? He's the pressed fat hermit who sells socks with 5 sisters who are all multi millionaires. I think it was just Rita wanting to get close to the Kardashian clan of closer to the Kardashian clan, hoping maybe she could glom something off of them. You wanna get weirder? Rita Ora even dated Travis Barker who's now with Kourtney Kardashian. Rita Ora dated Andrew Garfield before during an after he dated Emma Stone between 2011 and 2015. And she dated Taylor Swift's ex Calvin Harris, who looks like a schmuck in every picture, by the way, he dated Ellie golden. I'll stop there because I go down a rabbit hole of who dated who and so the pollination, the cross dating pollination. It's all incestuous at this level of Hollywood. But whenever I speak of Kate moss, I always remember one trip I took to south beach back in the day. It's weird. I'm generally not good on my own. I love having the right company with me, but for some reason back in 95, I want to say or so. I used to leave New York City for south beach and just go there alone. State after two, three days. Get a little hotel room on ocean drive, which was right across the street from the beach and the beautiful ocean. Ocean drive back then was very beautiful and quaint. Believe it or not, in the early 90s, not a lot of people were coming to Miami yet. Not yet. Now it's just busted out. But it was so plain and beautiful. You felt like you found the place no one had found before, even though there were hundreds of people around you. There was still so many pockets of old Jewish people who left New York and New Jersey and retired to Florida. So you felt like holy shit, no one knows what down here and the nightclubs thought it happening and great restaurants thought it happening and it became bedlam. Back then we used to go out to dinner at night and bring our sunglasses because we knew we were going to stay out until the sun came up. It was insane. So I think back then I got a room at the cavalier hotel, like a lot of hotels on the beach in Miami, very quaint, small, smell great, nice flowers in the lobby. Lobbies were really tiny. Suntan, I smell like sunshine lotion flowers, rum, cigarette smoke, those places were the first places to have infused water in the lobby, like water with lemon and strawberries and lime in the bottle. No one was doing that back then. Now every big hotel doesn't in the lobby, but back in the early 90s, south beach was leading the charge. It smelled like promise and anticipation. And I'd go to south beach and I'd bring a couple of books. In fact, then I was reading Charles Bukowski like crazy. I found bukowski. I've talked about this before. How certain music or books creep up on you and without realizing it, they suddenly win you over. And it was like that would be kowalski and me. One day I read one of his books called Hollywood, and I was just hooked on this guy. Plus, I love the depressing movie bukowski with barfly, I'm sorry. The movie barfly with Mickey Rourke and Faye Dunaway, Mickey plays makowski, has a big bar if that was French to loan. Great stuff. And you know, Frank Stallone put up an Instagram story the other day about people making fun of his acting career and making fun of his career in general. He's got to stop doing that. Frank is a good great guy and a good actor and a great musician his own. He doesn't need to talk about the people who find them to be a fraud. He ain't no fraud. Frank was famous before sly was. Frank said the terrific musician I've seen him in person a couple of times. He's fantastic on stage. He should be in Vegas. But he didn't do that. He made a lot of movies, not on his brother's coattails. Anyway, Frank's great. There's also that documentary, I think it's on Amazon calls Stallone, Frank, that is. Frank Stallone documentary, it really gives you a good peek into what his life was like growing up with sly and how they both went the same way, but different ways. It's a really fun thing to see in other people who are much more qualified than I am. We'll tell you just how great Frank is at acting and music. But either way, great scene, great bar fight scene in barfly. It's a very sad movie, but sometimes filming ugly things can be beautiful, you know? So I started to rip through the calcium's books and articles and anything you ever wrote. And of course, I had an attraction to alcohol and knowing that a writing hero of my booze fuel, that meant I had tried the same thing. We've all been down that road. I mean, a lot of artistic types think. Maybe I gotta be high. Maybe I should be drunk. Really, your best stuff is done straight and sober, but you know, you experiment with your young. He's got some lines, bukowski. In his books, that remains so simple, yet so strong and deep. I'm gonna give you a few. These are bukowski's lines. And you have to imagine his voice very gravely and deep from smoke and alcohol abuse. But here are some of his lines that knock me out. The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts. Some people never go crazy. Find what you love and let it kill you. You've got to die a few times before you actually live. Some men never die in some men never live are all live tonight. He wrote something beautiful called you get so alone sometimes that it just makes sense. I love that title. Some of it goes like this. Just go show a tortured he was. He wrote, van Gogh,

"They understand yes. It was wanting to leave the european union. But on boris johnson's head is the deal that he struck with the european union on leaving and is that fluid deal. We argued a lot about 'cause the named party would have struck a very different deal but the deal that he struck. That is now leading to the problems that we've got by the way we should say. Also these problems not just domestic problems. We've got serious issues. Emerging in northern ireland as the uk government resile from the deal they struck with the european union that's leading to further violence in northern ireland and real issues about how Vegas goods and services over this next period. So i think it comes back to the basic the way the people perceive the economy and in a sense we've had here over the last five years a peculiar political time because of course it was dominated by brexit. For at least three years and then more recently it's been dominated by the pandemic. I think that we're now returning to politics as usual when not going to have one single issue dominating the whole political landscape It goes back to the basics. Which is the economy. lauren order. Healthcare education Those are the big issues of the time. And i know as we head into tougher. Economic times is not the opposition. Could people blame. It's the government of the day. Yeah and so your. Your job is to offer that alternative to to the negative consequences if people conceiver there in front of their own. Is it so often alternative to offer an alternative based on hope and an and credibility on things that the economy that the british people can get behind the What i would say about kiss. Dhamma is he is a serious man serious times and i think you'll be very hard to argue that boris johnson. The clown i think on the international leadership seen makes people laugh. And let's remember that. Mr bean is one of our biggest comedy exports. Look i just think that in serious times i. the sheen is coming off. Boris johnson. There's a lot still for the british labour party to do and don't get me wrong. We have to transition successfully from being an effective opposition to being a government in waiting and we have to make that transition over this next next period to see an uptick in the polls and see prospects improve. But i do think that what we are seeing is the sh the she'd coming off. Boris johnson as people fail but It's that the emperor has no clothes. Yeah well you know David axelrod you know who who you. And i both know used to say that american electorates often ten look for the opposite of the last person and he said this by the way long before trump clinton to george w bush george w bush obama than obama trump trumped by a serious person would definitely be the opposite aboard shots so so we wish you the best david and Always good to talk to you. I'm sure we'll have a chance again. Hope to see you in in glasgow in a couple of weeks dot com white. Always good.

"I am very pleased to welcome back to the podcast. David lamey who is a labor party. Member of parliament for tottenham since the year two thousand david like me right as you were once a young person in politics. Now i've been around for bit. Which means that. He's now the shadow secretary of state for justice and shadow. Lord chancer shadow cabinet so david. Welcome back the podcast. Thanks a lot and making me feel. Twenty one is at done in public life. That's unbelievable that's kind of insane. When you and i met was in two hundred seven we both were. Were relatively new to this game. We are solved all the problems. Nothing yeah okay. So there's a few things that we've been talking about that we wanted to bring you into two because you've been either at the middle of it obviously on the ground there in the uk the first obviously the last week we're talking about the tragic Killing of sir. David amos And i know you've spoken a lot You know about The issue of security for politicians the issue of how the current environment of of extremism in politics is is made lawmakers more vulnerable You know having had a little bit of time to deal with this episode which obviously comes from the Apparently from an islamic extremists Attacker whereas the the joke hawks killing five years ago is from a more right wing extremist What what is your sense of what needs to be done to to secure politicians and and how how are you rethinking. The way in which politicians make themselves accessible to voters while also ensuring. We don't have these kinds of incidents every five years or at all really when ben. I can't emphasize enough. How connected british members of parliament. Aw to their constituents I need to underline particularly to an american audience that we are fundamentally wall on the ground visible than say a senator would be what is just real quick. What is a surgery. 'cause that's what he was doing at the time and i think that word was new americans and advice surgery Anyone can make an appointment to come and see them re parliament and they will be coming to see the member of parliament to fix the problem. to fix a problem with that housing if they're in public housing to fix a problem with their Immigration status or benefit welfare status or a problem with their kids school. Or you know everyday things health. The people come and see politicians about that require the politician to make represent representation to an arm of the state or the bureaucracy and it can really make a difference or sometimes to lobby the member of parliament on a massive issue of the day so for example as we head to cop twenty six Climate change activists. Come and see us a make it known that they are voting or not voting for us on the basis of what. Our party's position is on the climate emergency so that excessive penalties really really fundamental and we tend to do that Advice surgery in a town whole In a in a local church aura. You know civic. Civic building of some kind and many of us do open surgeries. You don't have to make an appointment. You can just turn up and see your member of parliament. And that is you know. It's important to understand even the prime minister. Boris johnson Is doing advice surgeries. Just as tiny bladders margaret thatcher did They won't be doing quite as often as i would do mine. But they will be doing at once a month. Also in their constituency and the prime minister of that's in the constituency of oxbridge And so this killing was obviously horrendous. David amos had advertised on his twitter. Feed that he was gonna do. Surgery apparently Unfortunately the individual under suspicion was party looking around and studying the pattern of him and other. Mp's over over the course of you know some time and He was killed in this way. And i think it it raises fundamental questions about how safe we are and i do think that it's important to say that the truth is members of parliament are not as safe as they were twenty years ago. And it's unlikely that we will return to that kind of safety. We are figures in the public. Kind that Living in a slightly more dangerous time and yes we require more security And that will mean that. There's a police presence. I suspect at our advice surgeries And more plainclothes security in and around some of what. We're doing this advertised but but it is important to all of us to remain very very accessible. You know i. People sometimes can't believe brought. I travel to work on the tube on our underground train network. People see me. They approach may say hi. I'm on the buses. That is very important to me I think that it also raises real issues around social media and.

"These black boxes that allow a command center in moscow to block filter in slowdown websites in content they found objectionable The times had one example where an image the government objected to. Now take basically ten times as long to lows or rendering twitter. whatever unusable on previous shows. We've talked about how the russian government threatened to arrest local google and apple employees if they didn't remove an app run by supporters of russian opposition. Leader alexi volney around the election. So you know what's interesting about this. I think is that russia's internet was kind of relatively free relatively burley's usable you get around south of epsn's That seems to be changing and now the internet freedom russia's that was leftovers getting crushed. So what's interesting about this to me. Ben is it's a russian story but also a global one because cutting off the internet. Is autocrat one right. We just talked about the sudanese coup. The first thing they do same in burma Is there do you think there is like a flip side of this facebook debate like some way. The international community could come up with process at technology the coalition to counter this kind of censorship. Because it's pervasive it's growing. I sure we'll see more of it When russia and china start exporting all that they've learned. I worry that we are moving inexorably to a circumstance where there's just kind of different internet's and different technology. Supply chains in different information ecosystems between kind of the autocratic world and the rest of the world. You know. I wish that wasn't the case. When people say like you know you shouldn't be for decoupling of these tech ecosystems or you want at least the capacity for people in russia to see what's on youtube you know even if it comes with like the autocratic strings attached but the reality is it's not the us making these decisions the chinese and russians in the autocrats who were basically getting much more aggressive and and forthright into saying. Hey we know the we're going to have our own version of the internet and and you know if you're a us based tech company you either have to completely play by our rules Or you know. That's it. And i think that's going to become untenable for us platforms. Unfortunately and so. I think what part what's gonna happen is gonna have to be managing this kind of evolution to a new reality much. There's one internet but there are these different Spaces and then i think part of it is also like is there any way to make information available in places like vpn countering blocking of epsn's 'cause like just where we're headed so we might as well prepare for it even if it's not our preferred outcome right right Okay come more things. So let's talk Climate change is the big summits coming up at the end of this month early next month. So couple a piece of news here. i The australian prime minister scott morrison finally pledged to achieve net zero carbon emissions by twenty fifty. However he did not commit to any target for emissions cuts by twenty thirty. Which is the gold this upcoming summit and has no plan to limit fossil fuel use so a lot of people are quite skeptical of The the pooper chief over there in australia mcdonalds mcdonalds good for second. The un released a report. Tuesday that says the updated climate change plans that have been presented and discussed so far Don't even come close to producing the cuts that are needed.

"You contracts there. And he's like you can buy shoes that are like making fun of zhang or something like he's trolling. The whole apparatus authoritarianism which is interesting. I think for what the chinese will do what they tried to do. Generally is take it out on usually the parent company right. 'cause did that that that that has the broadest chilling effect possible right at the top down pressure on at us but i yeah in the thing is you know like when he had the third one took his games off. Tv in turkey which is obviously smaller market. But it's not a tiny In the nba had his back. In that case. I mean look. I think when the nba came down on the side of a basic free speech after the dust settled You know like you always knew. Some other player could talk about china. You know like this was looming out there you know. And and so It'll be interesting to see how how far the chinese take it Because basically at the end of the day if the nba is not going to control the speech of all their players. Like you're always gonna be living with this possibility in. You're either gonna have the nba in china. You're not and that's ultimately like chinese decision. Yeah and a multibillion dollar decision on the chinese people really like basketball. Yeah it's not without it's not like an obscure. Sports is the most popular by far the most popular american sports. Yeah in china. There's some costs You you mentioned a cancerous spoken out against the turkish government. I saw over the weekend. A report that president air to one of turkey declared ten western ambassadors including the united states ambassador. Us ambassador that persona gra normally that means they literally expel you from the country because those ten countries called for the release of a prominent turkish civil society activist named osmond kavala. So that relationship is going well. Well i and again look all these guys want is for to to to feel so pointless to challenge them. You know like like across the board every autocrat. Whether it's trump in this country who make wants to make people can turned off and cynical or whether it's the chinese government trying to bully companies or whether it's air to on trying to bully ambassadors. Whatever it is they're just trying to make. It seem so tired. Some and futile and not worth it. You know and and once you succumb to that you're you're toast. Speaking of exhausting fights Let's talk about Bennigan's the israeli defense minister signing an order last week that designated six well known palestinian human rights groups that are operating in the west bank as terrorist organizations so the defense ministry claim that these groups are linked to popular front for the liberation of palestine or pflp which is a left wing organization. That has sort of a political movement and military wing. It has carried out attacks against israel That pflp has been designated as a terrorist organization by the united states by israel by the eu. So that they're sort of quantity but the connection was new between these human rights groups in the Pflp announcement was quite controversial because he's six groups are are well known got funding from the united nations from eu member states leaders of the groups. Say that the designation was just an effort to silence them to cut off their funding. The state department said that they didn't have any advance notice About his action that they wanted more information Liberal israeli cabinet members and members of the knesset were pissed because they didn't get any advanced noticed. Amnesty international and human rights watch released joint statement. That said quote. This decision is alarming escalation that threatens to shut down the work of palestine the most prominent civil society organizations quote so ben. I'm just wondering what the state department should do here. Obviously if there is evidence that an organization is supporting terrorism in some way or hiring terrorist members. Like that is a big deal. That's relevant. of course you'd want to know that but none of that has been made public. And i'm not sure i've heard process through which it would ever be made public or kind of relying on hearsay at the moment. But i i don't know what do you think states can do here. So i mean this feels like complete fucking bullshit to me These are very prominent organizations. You know they're not like a weird you know you just heard of them for the first time. These are like the prominent palestinian civil society humor positions the by the way report not just on the israeli government but on the palestinian authority and hamas and they work with international organizations. And you know so and look on the intelligence side you know with these releasing have this information if if there was one organization right you might think okay. I wonder what you know. Is there something happened in there. Like is there some money trail the fact that they're six of them. You know feels much more like an effort to just shut down palestinian civil society than some very precise intelligence based case about like somebody who works at one of these ngos has some ties. That are troubling. You know so. So i it just feels to me like what part of these organizations do is revealed the injustice of what's happening on the west bank and you want to eliminate palestinian civil society The the state department part of what bothers me about this is like the state department statement. i think noticeably pointed out that they had no advance notice to revisit something we've talked about on the show like the case made by the biden administration. Is that a quiet approach but you never have any public differences with these really government is the one that's going to yield results on all this stuff that we care about..

"cocaine" Discussed on Pod Save the World

"You had significant external encouragement from the saudis in the rotties and basically the kind of autocratic order in the middle east and to do a coup And you know when you're military and you're trying to gauge whether or not to take that step take that risk if there's a risk Having external support like that makes you feel better about doing it. Especially in there's money attached to it or something and that's always worried me about sudan in this this military leaders tight with the saudis and the roddy. So i i do think one lesson is you know you gotta lineup. Every actor who has influence in the country to be sending the same message and the message has to be stick to the transition. Plan get to the election etc I think another lesson is to kind of not just rely on the self execution of the civilian leaders in the transitional council or whatever but to be investing in the stakeholders in the society. You know that Want to see democracy. The civil society and sudan is powerful professional association. So that even when something like this happens there's resistance and pushback and it it's less Certain it's the end of the story as it was in egypt and so that remains to be seen i think some of that has happened in sudan odyssey And then look i. You know Withholding the the aid is is obviously necessary step. This was clearly done as kind of a fuck you to the us. You don't do it three hours after the on relieves unless you're kind of flexing a little bit Want to cancel the visit yet. So the guy that trip. Yeah it will look in the The there are other reality. Here's at we had other leverage with sudan right We had a whole nets sanctions on them that were lifted in the middle of the transition to bring them into the abraham accords right before trump's election that might have been a good piece of leverage to have If you know you have you know. I'm not a huge sanctions fan as people know. But if you knew you have them in place and you know there's a transition underway and you like to see the transition reached the end and frankly sudan normalized relations with israel's great but it's not the end of the arab israeli conflict. Exactly that might have been helpful. Probably doesn't do much for the sudanese people. And you're right though we we knew that this transition from the Military leader of the transitional council to a civilian leader of the transitional council was was written down in the calendar. They're supposed to get to an election at the end of tony. Twenty-three none of that is now happening. Because of this that the sanctions will be lifted as soon as the transition process is over. I don't know what thought point There's been some reporting. I read about questions around what the civilian leaders had planned for former president bashir in terms of accountability whether it'd be shipped off. Dic whether that may be spooked some of these generals who are running the transitional council because they're corrupt themselves the economist pointed out that if the coup sudan is successful it will be the fifth one. This year chad guinea mali myanmar on now sudan. Twenty fifteen or twenty twenty. There were three successful coups. In four failed attempts. This is not a great trend. No and here's. I think how people need to think about that. Which is we are clearly in like a an extended authoritarian moment around the world and here in this country kind of felt like it it reached crescendo with trump But not only. Are we not other words in this country. But there's like a tail to an autocratic trent these coups in some ways are reflective of. What's been happening for the last decade. You know where there's been an increasing normalization of military. Just say fuck it you know. We'll we'll take power. And i truly believe that what that means. Is you have to start by kind of fortifying. Consolidating the foundation of the countries that are already democracies. Kind of kind of hold the line where you are and then try to find ways to really make transitions succeed when there's an opportunity and and and that may mean like the next time you get a chance like a what happened in sudan a couple of years ago much more aggressive. Us engagement than the trump people did When the sudan stuff happened more assistance on the you know like you gotta make those transitions succeed. You gotta start really. Investing in the success of democratic transitions as aggressively as the autocrats. Invest in undermining demographic transition right. Now there's an asymmetry there where autocratic near the russians the saudis etc etc. They are much more invested in seeing the success of autocracy than us. Europe and the world's democracies are invested in the success of of transitions. Yeah i mean. Look i and when you look regionally i mean. That's the horn of africa writing smalley historically. It's some problems you yoga's in this civil war air trae is involved sudan south sudan. We just talked about chad at a the recent coup. Libya's on stabilized. I mean there's a lot of a lot of challenges regionally that Could use a little engagement. Given the horn of africa is just a mess right now. Yemen across the way You mentioned The saudi so two stories caught by saudi arabia. I sixty minutes did a big interview on sunday. The former saudi intelligence official named Saadun jabri jabri. Says he wants to quote. Sound the alarm about a psychopath killer in the middle east with infinite resources who pose a threat to his people to the americans into the planet. This is mohammed bin salman nbs the saudi crown prince job. You're also claims 'em bsn hit squad to candidates try and murder him back in the day in. The nba says imprisoned and tortured members of jobs. Family the second story Is one that was predicted. A thousand times on this show and now which is that. Trump officials are now cashing huge checks from middle. Eastern autocrats. Like the saudis. The first example is jared kushner or resoluteness guinea suit who is reportedly in talks to get as much as two billion dollars from the saudi government public investment fund or piff the piff is the sovereign wealth fund that mohammed bin salman uses to spray cash All over the planet and do stuff by like by the english merely team newcastle united. So jared new private equity fund is about to get two billion as a thank you for helping. Cover up the murder of a journalist. Jamal kashogi But he's not the only one then. Bloomberg news reported that former trump treasury secretary. Steve mnuchin just raised a huge amount of money. Two point five billion dollars and that a bulk of it came from the saudis and other middle eastern countries so remember that manoukian spent the final days of the trump administration flying around to these gulf countries at a cost of three hundred dollars to tax payers. So there you go..

Everyone's arguing about tony morrison. That's the closing argument I tried couldn't figure it out. Frankly i was like the republicans wanna make it about like books in schools which says an old timeless right wing issues and democrats are like you wanna talk about books at schools. We will engage you in that culture war rather than talk about the messages that That work for us. I will offer my world o- opinion on that Which is at. It's a lot of places which received recent years is far right. Parties like to close on culture war issues because they know they lose all the and usually what works is doesn't mean you don't take your stand on those issues and we should but you tend not to want to fight the last days of the election on the thing that the other guy wants to talk about. Guess what sort of like an iron rule of politics anyway terry mcauliffe dot com slash volunteer. If you want to Senate to volunteer left here. Today we are going to cover the military coon sudan. How a celtics basketball player is making waves in china to put it mildly Israel's designation of six palestinian rights groups as terrorist organizations facebook's global impact some kickback news from the saudis Some news out of russia around up of climate change updates and then the best story of the day cocaine bus.

Jimmy acre yeah like an actual genius great episode great show for john. We're excited for him to get q. Pilled to by episode ten. It was good. Because you and i were a little hungover. I think on sunday after hanging out a little way and the capacity throw on a podcast and and here very irrigate conversation. Internet was very. You took the dog for a walk. You listen to your friends talk. Also were celebrating the two year anniversary of what a day are fantastic daily podcasts. It gives you the news. You need twenty minutes or less. Subscribe to what day. Huge congratulations to the entire team Doing a daily show is very difficult. Takes a ton of work The whole crew has worked their asses off for two years to build really successful show to shut up to them. Glad we don't have to do daily show. And i've been on this show that you know. They're wicked smart. They cover what needs to be covered. What needs to be covered yet. We're more than once a week. Crank it up you know. Put them out to put us out to pasture. And then guess. Today's you mentioned his david lamb. What did you guys talk about was always a great discussion. David lemme We started with the story. We lead with last week The killing of the british mp. Dennis and how they're thinking about safety for politicians lawmakers in in the uk. We then talked about kind of hate speech. Facebook all the associated problems that are contributing to the toxic political varma there so kind of around the types of face because she's revolving Discussing here and then we got kind of the update on brexit. Which is spoiler not going. Good going to graze gas shortages and stagno senior british correspondent. David lamb able to speed on that excellent. We'll stick around for that okay. Let's start in sudan. Unfortunately it's not good news We talked about this issue last week but then on monday. The sudanese military took control the country. They arrested the prime minister. They impose a state of emergency and violently started cracking down on protesters. So the autocrat playbook general abdelfatta albarn him. The leader of the joint civilian-military council have been running the place since former president. Omar al-bashir was deposed twenty. Nineteen he was supposed to hand over. Control of this transitional council. If you weeks he chose not to. It would have been the first time. The country was under full civilian control since nineteen eighty nine. I believe but instead the military stage this coup protesters took to the streets to denounce coup. The internet was cut off in most of the country. This all went down just a few hours after abidance. Biden's on voice for the horn of africa left the country. He was there trying to stave off this exact outcomes. That's never good sign on monday. The white house suspended seven hundred million dollars in economic aid that was intended to go to sudan in supported this democratic transition to ben you sort of alluded to this. We've seen the story so many times now. Protests calls for democracy lead to these hopeful in fragile transitions and then ultimately the guys with the guns takeover because they have a monopoly on violence and all the in. That's just how it ends up going. Do you think there are lessons from. Egypt sudan like a lot of these different examples about what the international community can or cannot do differently to help give democratic transitions like the one we were hoping would flourish in sudan a better chance of success looted to this last time and people may think i have a hobby horse about it but i mean one of the lessons i took from egypt is part of what happened..

"Need rent or lose our house. My child is going to school. Tuition money and salvages give people money and at the time when they were operating in the eighties. They were known as a violent organization. They worked with both extraordinarily with both the meeting in cali cartels. They had a constant stream of supply and supply of cocaine That they could bring into this country through. I threw a bikini and later through the west coast tractor trailers over the mexican border But they They were able to operate someone says they walk between the raindrops. Which is really what the story is about. It's about the trials and the and the cat and mouse game. That william sal played but these guys. I know that you'll find anyone who's been in this country particularly in the cuban exile community for for for any period of time who don't know who william seller. How crazy is this story. The stories crazy stories crazy also because most cocaine trafficking stories end when they get arrested. This story just begins when they get they get arrested like six seven eight nine times in over the course of the six six episodes like they just keep getting arrested over and over and over again. It's just this revolving door were nothing. Seems to stick to like. I said they're just walking between the raindrops. And you have the entire the entire strength and power of the federal government the da the fbi the irs the us attorney's or the department of justice on these guys and they spent on their first trial in one thousand nine hundred five into ninety six. They spent twenty five million dollars on their defense. That is between attorneys private investigators They had a mock juries. They did like you know kind of they tested their case against him. They just had an endless supply of money to go head to head really in a way they could match and really outmatch the resources the federal government people talk about the dream team and oj oj did not spend a fraction of the money on his defense. These guys that these guys spent one of the craziest parts of the story. Some of them are spoilers. Because that's the thing. There's so many twists and turns in this story. I think the miami easter eggs in this are ridiculous. They're ridiculous some of them. We put a finer point on. It's just like okay. You can't miss the bg's you can't miss the miami sound. There's certain things that are very obvious. And then there's just things kinda like blow by in passing a passing reference to willie torino to latin american restaurant. And you're on red road like little like the map of dade county just kind of illuminates in a way that nobody else in the world will necessarily appreciate but like it's just like a treasure trove for for miami and i think what's interesting about it and shocking about it without trying to give away. Spoilers is two things. I the level of i should say multi-levels of the corruption the entirety of the criminal justice system. One federal judge referred to miami in the eighties is being on the ragged edge of anarchy..
