"The scenario is bill. Roggio is made the director of national intelligence. What is the first tasking order. What is it that america. Our allies aren't paying requisite attention to that. You would make them pay attention to to make us safe. What's the biggest gap in our knowledge. Yeah i i'm gonna keep this specific to the terrorism field. Because that's where i keep my focus but you know but i think these problem one of my big concerns. I think these again. What happens in afghanistan doesn't stay in afghanistan. The thought process that is used in. Afghanistan is used in other theaters. We need to clear house of the individuals who have come to the idea that we can negotiate with our enemies but the problem is they didn't view the we doing. The taliban is an enemy a decade ago. The we being the us if you have that type of thinking that the house needs to be clear we need to learn how to recognize our enemies. There was this was when i talk about the failure of the generalship. There was an individual named carter milk. As and he's he's been advisor to general dunford. He wrote an ad in the politico a couple of weeks ago. Maybe a couple of months ago where he says.

Are you kidding kidding. No i'm not getting the all the name taliban there the students of islam
Sebastian Reminisces About His Time in the Oval Office With Donald Trump
"Me share a story here. I was in the oval office with president trump. Just the two of us which rarely happens. The oval office has Well it has an entrance way from the out of office and then it has a little narrow door that goes to private eating area and little place for the president. Just sit and read. Didn't be by himself. And then it has the door to the the west wing where guests come through so you rarely in there alone. I was in with the most powerful man in the world and it is a humbling feeling truly as an immigrant to the united states. Somebody who wasn't born here. Who has an accident who always will who only became a citizen. Three years prior to be alone in the oval office is something yukon express. And i was in there on other business if i remember. Well i think it was Iran deal I was one of the two people though building. In addition to the president wanted to kill the iran deal. God bless into finally doing in the face of people like hr mcmaster tillerson mnuchin. All the other fake america first. And i was about to leave still talking about something to do with iran and the president looked at is hand. He got this very serious expression. Yeah he's a very jovial person. It's to great great sense of humor. But suddenly his face froze who's reminded of something on that piece of paper or just something came to mind when he said i really don't want americans to die on the korean peninsula. I did not want to get us into another shooting war in korea. He understood the threat. Remember the hermit kingdom under kim launching ballistic missiles over the japan intimidating our friends in our allies but despite never having said he went to a military high school but despite never having served he really undestood the weight. The inordinate responsibility carried by the person who is commander-in-chief
Gen. Mark Milley to Nancy Pelosi: 'I Agree With You on Everything'
"Mike gallagher. Maranda devine weighs in on the general milley thing in the new york post and so honestly if you're radio interviews generals who say well. It's not that big a deal. I mean generals talked to generals all the time you know. I talked yesterday about nancy. Pelosi is involved and that's what she dives into let me quote from her article. I mean journal. Mark milley became so deranged that he cast himself allegedly as the hero of a seven days in may style fever dream in only he could save the nation from trump trump launching nuclear war with china to stay in office. It's an insane scenario. Left wing equivalent of the most far-fetched cunanan conspiracies. She writes but this is what is claimed in. The woodward cost of book entitled peril show alarmed was the tightly wound. General about what he imagined. Trump might do that. He made secret calls his counterpart in china. Promising to warn them if the president ordered an attack. It's clear that milly or people authorized by him leaked details of his delusional daring due to a number of authors. Because he's proud of his actions. His lack of shane bodes ill for the country if he remains the nation's highest ranking military officer as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff the botched withdrawal of troops from afghanistan over which he presided was bad enough. She writes what's next and the most disturbing part she writes of the mili- story is nancy. Pelosi's malign influence. The general seem to treat her as his commander in chief pelosi who was engaged in a blood feud with trump that sent her batty manipulated and bullied. Milly a transcript of a call with pelosi two days after the january six capital riot obtained by the payroll authors has her ranting at about trump's access to nuclear weapons pelosi said if they couldn't even stop him from an assault on the capital who even knows what else he may do and is there anybody in charge of the white house who is doing anything but kissing his fat but all over this. He's crazy you know he's crazy. He's been crazy for a long time so don't say you don't know what his state of mind is. Milly reportedly responded madam speaker. I agree with you on
Republicans Stay Mum as Details Emerge About Gen. Milley's Call to China
"Beast has gone from claiming that the bob woodward book might be wrong about general milley to now outright defending general milley in calling china secretly and warning them that if we attack them he'll let them know in advance and did show behind the commander-in-chief's back and now the line of the narrative is. There's nothing really wrong with holy crap. Have we gone from zero to sixty and twenty four hours tucker asked a pretty pointed question last night where where are the republicans on this. Where's tom cotton. Where's lindsey graham. Where are where are these hawks when it comes to what appears to be a blatant direct in your face act of treason as detailed by a forthcoming book. I'm really baffled here.
U.S. Top General Milley Secretly Called China Over Fears Trump Could Spark War
"Was there anything unusual set to the chinese counterpart in the phone calls. As far as you understand again. I all i. All i've seen is the same reporting that you've seen jen i. I can't speak to the specifics of the conversation. A conversation that took place obviously before Before this administration took office. But i would add if i may again that it is not only a common. It's expected that chairman of the joint chiefs of staff would continue to have counterpart conversations. I mean he is basically the chief of defence for the united states. We don't call them that he has cobbler. Koby i've had enough. That's live footage from the pentagon. They are having to address the accusations block. Buster shocking tectonic accusations. The channel joint chiefs colluded with communist china with their general staff and cold them to ensure that china would not be attacked and that mark milley was interposing himself in the chain of command of the united states thus negating the principle of civilian control of our armed forces that we have had from the beginning of the establishment of our republic and the position of president chief. -secutive and commander in
Retired Officer Barry McCaffrey Tries Downplaying Gen. Mark Milley Incompetence
"You to listen to how this, uh, tier one level grifter Nicole Wallace, who when she, you know, she made a few bucks up the Republican party. Then that's right up because they realized she was incompetent. Then she decided she could drift off the left. She's doing that now on MSNBC. Watch this grifter, and when that dries up, she'll try to come back to the Republicans. Again. Here's the dreadful Nicole Wallace again gold medal winning grifter, setting up another general Barry McCaffrey, who again tries to defend Mark Milley and listen to the way this is all phrased in couch like it's no big deal. It's just a guard rail. There is no guardrail. The president is the commander in chief. Jim play Cut. Three. I wonder if you have any insights into Millie as a guard rail. The last one as as Mike's basically explaining, you know, Throughout this whole period, I had rather firsthand understanding of what was going on and go. And it scared me. I was convinced without question that we were on the edge of a ultimate constitutional crisis. I thought it was unlikely that Trump would use nuclear weapons, although he had all legal and constitutional authority in theory command that But there's wonderful bothered me the most. So he took her defenses and acting sect out Constitution says the Senate will be involved in approving senior answers of government. There was no deal left. So I think what General Milley was doing and by the way, routinely the chairman the service Chiefs, then joint combatant commanders routinely contract With their counterparts globally, part of the the occurrence of unwanted combat. Uh, I think he felt it important to not end up with the World War. One start of the war through miscalculation on the part of the Chinese
Rep. John Garamendi Starts Biden Damage Control on Gen. Milley's Alleged Treason
"Let's start here. Let's go to cut one. This is a hapless California Democrat John Garamendi, Um, again a complete zero. Um, a guy who realizes treason may have been committed and the Democrats were involved in a coup. That's not even a possible that that's a definite that they were involved in a coup. They admitted it, I'll show you a tweet. I'll read a tweet for you in a second from CNN. But here's Garamendi, hapless California Democrat defending Millie's decision saying, you know It's no big deal. We'll take a look. But this isn't a big already running damage control. Check this out. Key General Milley called a secret meeting in his Pentagon office of top military brass and basically said to them if you get calls, no matter who they're from, there is a process here. There is a procedure no matter what you're told. You do the procedure. You do the process and I'm a part of the procedure. Meaning he didn't want them. Responding really two calls from the commander in chief. Unless he was involved as a member of the Armed Services Committee. Do you see that as an end run somehow around the commander in chief? Or course Trump was, uh, unhinged by the election by his loss in the election, and he displayed that, uh, clearly from the evening of the election right on through to today, and he remains unstable with regard to his election loss. He clearly was deeply engaged in the 2000 election. 1000. January 6th insurrection He brought those people he encouraged them to come and he had done encouraged them to march on the capital. All of that is known. The investigations of all of this will are underway now. This select committee is delving into all of these communications.
Where Does Gen. Mark Milley Allegedly Conspiring With China Rank in Biden Disasters?
"It's really hard to rank which Biden disaster is the greatest and I mean worse, this disaster of all But I would have to say coddling a joint Chiefs of staff chairman who now in a new book. Bob Woodward book is alleged. To have basically committed treason in the book. Bye. Conspiring with the Chinese Communist Party. To defend a straight. Donald Trump is the commander in chief. I don't know where that ranks up there. Jim 12 and three It's I don't know It's tough. It It's got to be one Jim say he's got to be what? I don't. I don't I don't know. I'm having to believe in our people behind. No Southern border. Economy exploding vaccine mandates. This is close. If there is a 1234 and five they're only said separated by decimal points. Folks. The story is about as deeply disturbing as I've ever heard. And here's an irony. I didn't mention during the podcast this morning, but I thought if during the break there Remember Stuart Sheller from the Marine Corps member Stuart Sheller. He was, uh, he put out a tape demanding our tape. Excuse me, a video fashion aging myself a video demanding accountability for the disaster. The military disaster in Afghanistan, you know, demanding accountability like a qualified military leader should do. And Stewart Scheller was relieved of his command member. That story about the Marine seems to have exited the headlines because Biden does so much terrible stuff. Um, the headlines evaporate so fast here. But it's It's really odd how he was relieved of command, and they've been targeting him Stewart Scheller, and yet it's alleged that Mark Milley was conspiring with a nuclear powered communist enemy of the United States. And yet the leftist media celebrating I'm No, I'm not kidding. I've got the, uh I've got the audio to prove it.
Accusations of Treason Swirl Around Gen. Mark Milley
"Sean hannity during his monologue last night talked about milly either being he should be absolutely fired and tried for treason. If of course the account of bob woodward and bob costas book is correct. Accusations of treason are now swirling around the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. That would be general mark milley. According to an explosive upcoming book from bob woodward millions accused of conspiring behind the scenes with communist chinese to undermine president trump in the fall of twenty twenty as the washington post details quote in the books account. Millie went so far as to pledge that he would alert his counterpart in the event of the us attack is counterpart being in china. The communist chinese. The book claims that millie had his chinese counterpart quote. Generally you and i have known each other for five years now. And if we're going to attack. I wanna call you ahead of time. It's not going to be a surprise. Okay so what they can attack us. I if this is true general milley would be traded to this country if true he should be fired and tried portrays an immediately given america's enemies heads up before an attack. Well that's the worst possible offense that are member of our military ever commit and there's more according to the same upcoming book and that is the general milley also conspired behind the scenes to neuter the commander in chiefs ability taken duct his constitutional role as commander in chief and conduct military operations. Now this this shouldn't be a right left talking point. I should be able to say to every democrat listening to the show every trumpeter if the chair of the joint chiefs was giving our enemies a heads up in the event of an attack. How is that not treason.

Today from anthony blinken that they have a rigorous vetting process for the over one hundred and twenty thousand afghans who have being flown out on our military flights. I just how do you do vexing for example for a person who has no documents. And whose data isn't on any system we own. Can you explain the wizardry of this administration to me now. Jackie sebastian. Look you just what you just talk about. Common sense look a couple of things. We that are factual based not spending misdirection. Come from this administration. First of all the military commanders. Their their mission is very clear from the white house. It was all about fast fast fast. Get people on planes as fast as possible. Look i've been serving this country for thirty five years. I've been involved in operations. Where fast took precedent over other things. When that happens things fall through the cracks. There is no doubt that people getting on that plane that we knew. Virtually nothing about sebastian. It looks the factor detail in this. We've already heard about people got onto planes that later. They found derogatory information that they were connected to the taliban they were connected to isis here in dallas.

Who Are the Taliban's Leaders and Its Rank-and-File?
"The taliban took back control of afghanistan. There's been a lot of waiting wondering and worrying about how they will rule the country but we wanted to go bit more granular and ask who makes up the taliban today. It's not a simple question and we don't expect a simple answer. I'm lead hucker is going to take a stab at it. He's the editor of the afghan. I an independent media outlet and he's based in london. I'm eddie first. Question is about the person who's been named the head of the taliban led afghan government will abdelghani. Dr who is he well. He is from southern upon istana and he essentially cut his teeth in the outgun political battlefield during the soviet invasion and occupation he partook in was called the soviet jihad and obviously after the withdrawal of the soviet forces and the collapse of the puppet communist government we saw a surge in infighting amongst the mujahedeen and in one thousand nine hundred four essentially. What were a group of virginia dean. Commanders leaders and southern onto stone got together and formed a political organization called the taliban and now the taliban means literally students and as a social educational network existed for centuries in the south of the country from which malabo that is from. But this was the first time they became a political organization so malabo brought is essentially for all intents and purposes a co founder of. That's audubon a veteran. I wanna move to the rank and file members of the taliban who are they in terms of background education. Where they're from the rank and file it's difficult to sort of characterize them as a monolith however the way in which we could essentially characterize them as generally rural religiously educated so they are literally can read and they can write and generally very young. So almost you know. In that mid-twenties most of them don't remember the toddler bonds previous government in late nineteen ninety s rather their only real remembered experiences of living off the two thousand guantanamo
Biden Faces the Fallout for His Chaotic Retreat in Afghanistan
"A decision was made biden faces. The fallout for his chaotic retreat. In afghanistan by brian bennett. It was the first time. Joe biden had witnessed dead americans returning home from foreign battlefield as president and commander in chief the bodies of eleven marines a navy medic. An army staff sergeant arrived on. Us soil on sunday. August twenty ninth all killed in a suicide bombing at the kabul airport on august. Twenty sixth amid america's chaotic exit from afghanistan after twenty years of war for thirty five minutes as the flag draped cases were carried down the ramp of an air force c seventeen cargo plane at dover air force base in silence except for the home of aircraft engines and muted troop commands. Biden stood in front of the cold reality of his decisions. A series of fateful choices over the past six months drew a tragic line to that moment it was biden who in april settled on august thirty first date for withdrawing u s forces from afghanistan. It was biden who chose a minimum number of us troops to secure the exit and it was biden updated in intelligence briefings and meetings over the summer who oversaw his administration's abandonment of a key. Airbase the delay in evacuating us citizens and allies and belated scramble to provide more troops to get everyone out safely. Hard decisions are histories. Acid test for precedents. It's easy to forget amid the posturing and politics but the architecture of american power means there are some calls that only the president can make and when it came to afghanistan biden was determined to make them he had watched the wars launch. As the senate's top foreign policy overseer nearly twenty years ago then fault and lost an efforts to end it as vice president since announcing the exit he has never publicly wavered on that

"Now we have propaganda is in this country from the Defense Department to the state Department to the White House. Highly paid, Admiral Kirby. Nick Price, Jen, pus, AKI and others. And now generals who are part of the propaganda. Do you think George Patton or Omar Bradley or the top General George Marshall would leave American citizens and enemy territory under any circumstances or conditions? Including at the order. The commander in chief, No commander in chief has ever ordered any general To leave citizens behind. What about these Children and these women? What about the Afghan allies? The men who fought next to US firefight after firefight. What about the 80 to 100,000 s ivy visas granted special visas granted to Patriots, who fought side by side with Americans. Instead, we hear that the American citizens didn't act fast enough. Instead, we hear this was a massive success. Instead, we here we will use diplomacy. To deal with these Nazis.

Former Marine Questions Why People Aren't Resigning
"Yeah, I was just curious, not served in the Marine Corps. Um, obviously outside of the base, Camp Lejeune, and during my time I had the privilege to drive generals around, so I kind of got some insider. Fly on the wall type of stories and stuff, and one general, I was able to had the privilege to drive around in Norway was general stirred event. Was a commander of Camp Bastion. I don't know if you remember the attack on Camp Bastion in 2012. I think Prince Harry was stationed there. Alright, Two marines were killed and two marines were killed in that attack. Instantly. Both commanders were relieved of their duty and forced to retire, So I'm just curious with this Kabul airport attack were 13 service members are killed in a humanitarian effort. Why? Who is who's Who's resigning? Why isn't Centcom commander resigning? Why aren't people falling? The only thing I'm seeing from, you know, being at Camp Lejeune or these lower Officers who are posting videos speaking out against the top brass in Washington. They're the ones who are getting relieved of their duties who are speaking out against the atrocity that happened in Kabul, Afghanistan in the airport suicide bombing, So I'm just curious. Why aren't people Resigning top brass in Washington because they're doing what Biden wants them to do. And if the commander in chief doesn't want them out? And if the secretary of defense and the head of the Joint chiefs are really the people who are perpetrating these things Um nobody below them is going to resign. That's the problem we
"commander" Discussed on Jocko Podcast
"This is not to say that. The commander should abdicate his own responsibility but a one man shop of is a one. Man shop is evidence of poor leadership. There you go. So if you're running everything. Bad leadership a good commander will patiently and carefully instruct his subordinates. To ensure they know what is expected he may even have his subordinates. Return and present their plans for accomplishing the tasks but he will then insist that they get the jobs done without detailed guidance. So our back to like this leaning back towards hey. I'm going to tell you exactly what to do. I want obedience but you go figure out what you wanna do. So he's balancing this dichotomy of leadership between. Hey you need to put some structure in place so people know what to do but still wants to go and figure out how to how you're going to get it done. It's almost like you have to take the word obedience and change what that natural reaction. You have excited the media. I don't like that word. There's a. I don't like that word and just like you described. I actually don't. I don't want my people to feel like they have to be obedient to me. And so it's almost as if the obedience. Isn't i say to do something and you do it. It's the obediences. It's the natural almost unspoken reaction that what we need to get done is going to get done as opposed to. You will do what i say. Because that. if that's the obedience you're looking for you actually. You're just hurting yourself in so many different ways. But there's there's language here. When i hear you say it might kind of get that little like oh. I don't like that. But as he explains it and kinda peels back. The he's referring to isn't. I demand you to be obedient to my own i want. And when he talks about decentralisation. I want the obedience be. We're going to resolve this problem. We're going to get whatever needs to get done. I'm actually going to have you figured out half the time. Yeah and i think to take what you just said. It's take it one step further. What obedience is everything. He is saying is is leading to towards the result. Of what obedience is if you're obedient. You're driving towards accomplishing the mission. That's it that's my obedience we got mission and i'm going to accomplish it. That's what i'm gonna do. Yeah because he's literally saying without detailed guidance. I'm not gonna tell you how to do it. Here's the mission goal comps it. That's obedience by giving them responsibility. Authority and by underwriting. They're honest mistakes. He will encourage them to exercise initiative and accept responsibility. he will help them to develop into more effective individuals and hence into more effective soldiers and officers. This internal will result in a better unit. That sentence right. They're giving giving responsibility and giving authority and underwriting their mistakes a mistake. Hey i got no problem no problem. You're you're you're encouraging them. That's how you create leaders that are going to take initiative. Which is exactly what you want if you're a good leader. A problem arises when individuals are given the authority to make decisions on various types of actions and then fail to use it. How much time is wasted by passing the buck to the next level even though authority existed to make a decision on the spot training.

An extra couple sets warmer. But i'm not starting to evacuate sketch dude at man shack all right getting back to the book. Everything that i've said about. The balancing of unit activities is doubly valid for the training program itself. The most valuable resource available to the commander is his men's time and time once lost can never be regained. That's fitting time once. Lost can never be regained poorly poorly prepared unimagined of or unnecessary instructions. Wastes soldiers timed worse. It is boring and soon results in ineffective poorly trained individuals with no initiative or a spree. The skillful commander is the one who adopt the philosophy of gainful employment for each man and one who takes maximum advantage of every training our to ensure value received man member all that dome trading you did in the military. I do like do when they started you. Just do some training us go. Just horrible horrible. What are we doing to waste in this respect.

"commander" Discussed on Jocko Podcast
"Got older and got better and got more experienced. I would think he'd say this is what I should have done when I was a platoon commander but I didn't. And here's what I would do differently. But maybe because the wars were different and it was more centralized. And it wasn't dispersed everyone together. So there's A. There's a a I think. What I see is him is him saying listen it was it's a different thing whereas I look at it now and say wait a second might have been a different thing for you but if you could go back knowing what you learned eventually. You might say, Hey, I actually would have led differently. And I'll tell you right now. Even in a platoon, even in a frequent squad in a fire team. The techniques that he's going to talk about. What's better if you're in charge of of a platoon, what's better grabbing the grabbing the reins and pulling them down? Or is it better to guide them and let them run? The. But he digs in a little bit chain responsibility. and. Also, you must realize as you go up in various echelons of Organization of the army from the squad on up, you become increasingly removed from the individual soldiers and your influence on the individual soldier is no longer carried by an eyeball to eyeball approaches carried on through the lens of your command down to him, and you become increasingly Justin image to him which you develop in several ways but you get to the field of proper staff organization and staff relationship because that is very important part of commander ship and ship. What does that saying what it's saying is one you're in a leadership position as you go up ranks, you're right you don't have eyeball to eyeball. All the time I guess who you have. A ball with your subordinate leaders. And you're supportive have to nurture those close personal relationships with their troops so that that G-. Influence that you have as the commander is felt all the way down through the front lines. Back to the book in your recent military review, there's an article on faulty staff relationships. I hope it will cause you to give a little thought to that problem because it is important one, you come to one of the most important parts of commander ship and leadership, and that is establishing a chain of responsibility so that every man in your organization knows who key works for and who works for him. That's cool. I get that. We, that's called the chain of command for that is basic. How many organizations have you been in where that wasn't known? I've been several I had no idea who I worked for or who.

But this go a long way towards helping make sure that that social safety that. Is there for veterans right and I hate I hate the idea of some guy or some woman walking wandering around getting sitting there in their house by themselves going through their own mental stuff, their own, PTSD and having no food or no friends or no nothing.

So You know we've tweet out with three other link again let's just raise a shitload the money for these people because they're good people doing good things at a time. When you know a lot of people, a Lotta people, my company allow people a lot of places treating these military people like they're you know the enemy or something you know it's fucking crazy I mean the again people are why we can do I can do. Stupid Shit like this, why you guys can do go have fun. So let's do it. Let's raise some money. Let's put some food on the table and and make their lives a little better if we can. This is a very, very least we can do and we're gonNA give you incentive I all. You get a chance to win go live show and secondly a chance to co host this show at some point so. I think that's an on that see mustn't forget. The other thing is a lot of people have asked You know they can't make that date work, but they still want to donate just by by some of the raffle tickets and if you if you win, you can donate that ticket you can kick it back to US whatever you WanNa do we'll find a way to do it but just a enter the raffle that's the best way to to donate. Good. All right. So go do that. We'll talk to you guzzler. Commanders spoken. Finally some real leadership. It was peggy and Tom Yes. This is bad. I not tell you this yet. This is not this is probably a big reason. Why were things make great between us? I. Masturbate. Journalism call them yesterday. Is that is that is that. that. You could put the sticky note over the camera. I was fired. Excited talking about raising money logistical details got y'all aroused. Go. How many crackpots if you got Ten Crop? Brown buns. Well, let's Jeffrey. Toobin is we know is a scumbag I'll just throw his first first class. Douche this guy basically tried the fucking have greenfield right Jeff Greenfield's daughter. Yes. Yup. A their fucking kid who knocked up just too. So I mean. And then denied paternity was like basically sued taking a paternity test and then when they find out that he was the father, he didn't want to pay child I believe he was working at CNN working. See she working at CNN though Jeff Brief York at CNN forever. I think it was Jeff Greenfield or she might have been injured or something you know the the entire situation is just so fucked up so that a totally morally decrepit human being on the actual I'm GonNa pull the actual vice story about toobin here on second. So the vice story made it sound like it was Like he was walking to the bathroom or something or he just like it made, it sounded a lot more innocent. He was actually jerking off. Sorry was written by the way the vice story Laura Wagner. Gambling is that where the that's been writers I guess. So just to give you an idea. So Jeffrey. Toobin is a legal analyst. He's been around forever. You really cut his teeth nationally during OJ. And you just like that just scum toll scum. So a I how often does this sound? The, the new. Yorker and W Wyan C. Radio in new. York last week were doing zoom video chat. We're doing election simulation featuring many of the New Yorkers biggest. Stars. Jay Mayor was playing stabbing two Republicans Evan Osnos Joe. Gilani Cobb Establishment Democrats, Masha gessen played donald trump sue help rooms left wing Democrats in Jeffrey toobin played the courts. So even they were doing some fucking play or whatever. So. So they basically, they thought I guess they thought they were on a break or something is that what the ones I guess? So or he? He told vice that he thought he had his camera mute right? Because you know if you if it comes to a part of the call where you're not going to be involved you just you know your audio respect for the other people. So I guess you just start fucking jerking off. I mean we know jerk off. The Christ. Can You keep your Dick in your pandering zoom call with for work In the middle of the bicentennial man. Watch. Party like camera off. All right. That'd be funny. I, mean like it's just fucking crazy. Fire him yet. Now. This creep is not been five. You know, of course CNN and their toll frauds and phonies but like you know it's just. So the two sources describe juncture in the election simulation. There's a strategy tragedy session and the Democrats or Republicans how awful. This is fucking thing sound by I mean this is the fact that you get hard during. This is a fucking incredible. went to the respective break out rooms for about ten minutes. At that point they said, it seemed to push on the second video call the sources said he was on the second. The sources said that when the groups return for their breakout rooms to been lowered the camera, the people on the call so they could see to touching his penis you then left the call. Call back in seemingly unaware of what his colleagues able to see in the simulation continue. He's not tweeted since October thirteenth is conde nast email has been disabled. What do it sounds like he pointed the camera right at his Dick he's probably on some fucking. Zoom for sex thing was fucking service or something probably right I don't know knows. Yeah, the of course, also New Yorker writer just perfect checks all the boxes really does I mean it's just unbelievable. It's just do you really the fucking. He'll be on CNN election night. No. No I don't think so not even seen it. No, I.

Some fucking bazaars do you think the the massage parlor that we have? Invented it's completely dark. Well, there's probably no one working on. Very Abasement doesn't seem like a great place to have a workout. It doesn't seem like you got the ventilation you need true I don't know but it seems seems terrifying to me so. People wanted to see it. So anyway, I just want to give everyone a quick. Update on our announcement rather inept tests oppose on our our live show, which is a few weeks. Two weeks from Sunday would that be right? Yes November the six. So we've had one day worth of ticket sales which I would say were okay. I'd say fans were I would say for the first time ever kind of disappointed I think that the mini vans. Didn't think that they ever have a chance of winning. So I think they're geared. The event was talked up so much the a lot of people are like Well, maybe I can't win. It'll realize that this is also a charitable endeavour. Elderly veterans can have Turkey. Oh, that's the thing. So I don't think I would typically that well, maybe the neither on the show he tweeted out amidst the chance to feed veterans on giving an in the future to you know are veterans out there. We've seen with mental health who were starving who are hungry, who are alone or going through stuff, and if we can brace some real money to help these guys out like we've done in the past whether it's made cox family or the charitable endeavors let's go together. I bought a bunch of tickets yesterday. Understand that you know I understand. It's a Sunday pandemic I understand. You'll love you guys aren't from here. I totally get that I mean listen we sold a lot of tickets yesterday at ninety nine, point nine, nine, nine percent of the podcast the world would do this but. I want to sell more on the lot I want to help this want to help veterans I really do and raise a shitload of money and give them a nice big fat check in a couple of weeks. So I'M GONNA RAISE THE STAKES A LITTLE BIT here, Steve O. Two of these winning tickets two of them. Are also going to get a chance to sit in the studio and do the show with us one day. Okay Two of these tickets we're GONNA pick two of them kind of them. We're GONNA figure out which two are going to get to come in here and host the CO host. The KIRKMAN is this is this going to be random or is there some kind of? Ran Not random of the of the winter starring get to come in meet with us, hang out with US and experienced getting the Kirkman show. All right. They get to do it. Excellent. So there it is, and if they want their friend knew it or their wife or their husband, that's fine. That's their choice. So two of them get to host the show and all every single dollar. Of the twenty-five Raffle I think there's some tax charge that barstool hazard every. So yesterday about the tickets, but it's actually pretty minimal at the state of Massachusetts it was nothing was bucker said yeah so. We even get to do that because again, this is four veterans. vfw Hall and Florence and we're GONNA make all the money for them. But this is what they wanna do as well as on Thanksgiving and other days when Veterans Need If. You raise more money maybe they need clothing or for job interview maybe they need some help with mental health maybe need some help on Thanksgiving. We're GONNA try and do that and raise money because we care about veterans here. We are I on commander Kirkman. I'm taking over the operation. This is the my throw that so far the commanders taking over somebody Barstool has to be the voice of Veterans. It's true in it's GonNa. Be Me somebody needs to speak I mean others in the past have said that they have cornered that market evacuated Can I use the word on Youtube or no Okay. Okay well, whatever I guess can figure it out. The word is cunty. Isn't it? about their little. Commander in the hand, I don't think other military people bar Silverman the rank of Commander Oh, certainly, this is the highest ranked barstool officer ever. So Commander Minivan. The executive of the zero, thirty block. Now, it everything all military things come to me now. M WE WANNA raise real money for these guys. So get step in I don't care if you win or you lose if I'm not through with these numbers they'll be no matter WASCO. There'll be no wilbur there will be no nothing I wanNA make money for these people I. Think of these frigging veterans who find these fucking wars while guys like me replying fucking basketball jerking off in cars and living in L. A. and drinking their faces off all these Absolute.

"I actually contrary to what other people say I think the cowboys walk debt Prescott to be the quarterback I think they want to be able to do it without expended too much capital. On Him and they thought that they can run the game on him that if you take a little less than, we can give you more money from a weapons and everything else Dak Prescott like I can't eat them weapons I just can't believe that they're so dumb that they would take a quarterback that age who is being that good and think that they can just go find another one. With a team that's basically built to win now, like his point is they're playing, they're built to win now. Out I just don't think you go to come back out here but I get Andy Dalton next year or try to draft a quarterback in the first round in order to make that happen I I just I personally just do not see that happening, right I. Think they want him to be the starter I. Don't think this injury is going to derail his career. Totally I, think he's going to wind up being a quarterback for many years for Dallas cowboys like this. These are the things that I absolutely believe but the variable here he is. It's because I think they want him. It's because I think they want him to be the quarterback we look at what's happening in. Washington it. If it wasn't clear to you before now it should be abundantly clear to you. Now, the reason to way haskins starting because they just don't want them to start. Like apparently Washington Aka the team as Rivera. Haskins, and he said I saw enough. That's a wild thing to say about a dude as twenty, two, twenty three. Just I'd seen enough and we're starting to get the reports now about Haskins and his work habits and the team having problems with those and these are like I guess accusations is the right word but they were saying it last year to right. There's a level of growing up that he needs to do that he has not done yet. But it is so wild to me that you just got this job and you're already like Yam do you put kyle? Allen out there I think about how crazy this is it will not there kyle stokes then Kyle Allen hurt then they had to like endanger the health of Alex Smith. Believes it felt like you know put him out there. He stunk Kyle Allen was cleared to return they left Alex. Smith out. There was still say that it's Kyle, job. Neither of those dues any better than Haskins had been up until this point neither of them was. They just don't want him to be the quarterback simple as that they just don't want it because there is no plausible football reason there is no reason to expect improvement from Kyle Alan. There's certainly no reason to expect improvement from Alex Smith. They just don't want him to be the quarterback period. He's done in that tap know what other town he's going to get in and also want to be clear. I don't think he's very. Good period at least right now. But I'm not I'm not betting on Dwayne Haskins but the same thing happened in Washington Griffin. Jay grooten did what would be the quarterback? Perry and you can look at the ways that they handled him. When he did play the way, the offense would change when he wasn't out there when Robert was playing that first year under gruden and then they went to cousins or is not the first thing I want to say the second year the year they finally got them off the job but you'd be like, wow. What happened where all these screen passes with Robert was out he all these easy throws like where were they Iran, had his problems right like I. Don't blame them for decided they wanted to move all but the truth is their coach took that job and probably told them that he liked the quarterback that the owner light and then got the job was like, no I don't. I'm good and that seemed to be what's happening to Haskins but that's not what's happening to Prescott. Terrible was and how you hope he gets better than they did surgery and everything else I. Don't feel like we're talking about a dude that never going to play for the Dallas. Cowboys again. I don't think that's going to be it and I actually heard some people try to make the argument that some blessing in disguise from going to Andy Dalton. This I feel about a situation like that Dalton. Aldo, if you've ever seen his episode, the substance gave 'cause it's from season one which was you know Before you were born. Wow but family goes decides they want to buy RV Flanders, a butterfly RV, and now they decide they wanna go get RV and they get in there and now it's time to read credit check but his homer processes credit at you're unto credit, check it a the siren goes off the computer. It however says is that good guy says? Have you ever notice I to be good. Mr Simpson. That's how I feel about Eddie. Like I. Think the Booger is on TV talking about how eighty? Eight might be a good thing to have any out there as having eighty dollars out there ever been a good thing missing McFarland like. That's that's I, feel about this. That's I feel about this it again. Eighty dollars capable out of all the backup quarterbacks in the League I think legit backup quarterbacks just a young guy by Tom, something like that, right?.

"Now, it's going to be weird to watch what happens because even with Andy Dalton, at quarterback, the cowboys can win that division. They still K. and who know eighty look gave you notice who who, who, don't trick themselves into give an antidote boatload of cash the cowboys win the division like I feel like eighty dawn all got gotta do is not wet himself if somebody to be dumb enough to be like Yep, look starter again I sure as hell hope it's not the forty niners is. Yeah y'all already got eighty dollars just like better looking version I tried to tell you didn't try to tell you gave the now try to warn you about to do. Yes. You did I'm just I just want everybody to know what people thought. I'll hate no Jimmy Garoppolo. No, he's just not that good like and it's kind of going on now in a much different way obviously because he's a rookie but were herber. Her played a game against the saints I think that's the first time I've really sat and watched him and he's got all the tools but a judge, Herbert's hair don't really move like he drives back as like Oh bad i. think this guy is going to be open if he's not. I don't even know who else is out here. Right he's getting to the line, he's making the snap and he's going in. It's cool. It's just kind of catches up to you. You know what I mean. So he is able to do some incredible things as it goes right now but I think what? Herbert he looks better and the numbers are better than he is actually being. Makes Sense. You know and that's what happens all the time and football and it happens all the time and football because the announcers root for the quarterbacks overwhelmingly. And long as you complete a pass, the announcers are down for it and in watching football I think the most viewers more dependent on the announcers for expertise than they are in other sports like you don't really need a baseball color may explain to you what just happened. Yes that was a curveball. Yes. They look hard to hit. You know what I mean like you don't need somebody to tell you that. Basketball somebody can tell you that but you can understand the game well, enough like Kinda SORTA with added football. We lean on the color commentator to tell us what is going on in these plays where it was supposed to go. You know all of those things that's that's that's where we wind up and as long as do completes a pass, they're not really hitting you so much with that many examples of. But if you do the ball right, there would have been better like, okay. It's cool that he completed that but this is what he missed. You only get so much. It was like, Hey, he just keeps completing passes and moving the ball down the field you know that's where you wind up. In that situation with like these guys but Andy Dalton is going to be interesting. 'cause you got guys throw to. Gala made at the end of that game like got to get the ball to they ultimately wind to be okay and I think the deck is ultimately going to be okay and I think the debt is ultimately going to be the cowboys quarterback next year because they just don't have any better option like maybe there's a chance that jerry loses his mind and runs a cody. Carlson. Go to Carlton is now the sounds familiar though yeah. Yeah. Yeah. No reason for you to just to be clear Cody Carlson played college football at Baylor. and. Then was drafted by the oilers while war moon was there. And any glimmer of hope that they ever had get coded Carlson and the guy to get coded Carlson. Job. They was here for Kyle type situation. Yes. But it yes access with Texas quarterback. Yes. Yes. It Texas with the Texas quarterback. Warren Moon, I guess cams kind of a similar example war obviously. But one year Warren Guy hurt like going into the postseason and cody came in and had a good game man newspaper the next week there was a whole sprayed commander cody, right? Like they were just all over. It couldn't wait the oilers traded Warren Moon in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety four to give the job to commander cody. You, know how much log war move played in the NFL after that. Or move played I want to say another nine years. Now, Ness. Born left the oilers at the end of ninety three a he didn't retire until the end of two thousand. Okay and by the way made three more pro bowls. After they traded him. Cody Carlson got the job in nineteen ninety-four reds look up how many games cody Carlson played gate. In, one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, four. Cody Carlson played in five games. After that season Cody Carlson retired. NO THEY RAN Warren Moon off for five games a cody Carlson and listen to who started the rested him games Bucky Richardson, which doesn't mean anything to you but Texans remember Bucky Richardson. Heat is went to say he was in a way kind of like a Proto Tastes Hill not that he did all the things that taste them hill does but of quarterback that people want all the team so bad that he plays on special teams. Like. That's what they did with Bucky Richardson and then Billy Joe Tolliver I want you to know by the way, but you would not know this. All three of those guys are Texas quarterbacks like they just went out a bunch of white dude through Texas this sound like a bunch of seduce. In Cody. Cody. Bucky Binge Oh. Yes. That is exactly what happened because they wanted to get him out of there. Now think that Jerry is going to do that with Dak Prescott because the one thing we do have to note about war and at that point is that he was old he played forever but he was an older quarterback at that time they were kind of tearing down the whole thing you know there's a lot of stuff that went on there still they would it cody Carlson to.

Another set of new guidelines for when businesses and schools could open up and earn a living in feed themselves and educate their children keep their children from becoming psychological basket cases. So yet, another new standard set of standards of four tiered system. And the county public health officer in San Diego County was talking about this and she pointed out that San Diego County, which is doing very very well with the VID had made it to tear to the only county in southern California earned that designation the county still has substantial covid nineteen. That's one of the terms they use for the tears but unlike a bunch of other counties including La County, it's not considered widespread. Then they go into a bunch of numbers. They reported cases, the number of deaths at center at Center. Of the eight hundred and twenty, one test reported three percent returned positive lowering the fourteen day rolling average of positive tests to three point six, well below the state's guidelines of eight percent. The seven day average number of tests performed in the county is about seventy three hundred don't you don't have to memorize these numbers but good because not you got to metrics, the state is monitoring once an old one, the percentage positive tests in the new one, the number of daily new cases per one hundred thousand San Diego's numbers are very good but the health lady pointed out. To make it to the next year, the county has to show rates between two and five percent positive in between one and four percent new daily cases per hundred thousand. But there's a twenty one day mandatory wait time before you can move between tears Oh. Long time writing weeks. So you have to hit those goals and then there's a three week waiting period and a county must meet the metrics for the next tier two straight weeks, and then the three week waiting period begins also accounting may only move one tier at a time. Well, data expert Justin heart has been analyzing covert nineteen numbers throughout this whole mess, and he is an advocate for getting back to normal, but he said. He found the new color coded system completely. Ridiculous. And he says it's actually impossible for San Diego County who were looking at now to make it to the lowest setting he tweeted if we assume eight percent infection rate here in San Diego County with ninety eight percent specificity and ninety nine percent sensitivity. If we test just sixteen hundred fifty people that will yield thirty-three false positives right there we will never make. It to the lowest setting and businesses will be closed for good entirely and only based on false positives. So the question would be, did they set it up that way on out of incompetence or because they knew you would never get there in that way they can just it'll be on their word.

"commander" Discussed on Highly Questionable
"Had to be honest with you. I missed a lot of that video, because I had trouble getting past this. When did you start being humble? Right Cam says he is getting tired of being humble. Are you telling me that what we have seen from you for the last ten years? That was that? Was You passing for humble? Man This is going to be home areas. I think it was just. Him talking himself up getting hype in that moment and I think what is referred to as the past couple of months where he was quiet, when no one was offering him a job when he seemed to stoop to the point where he's taking the League minimum to play for the Patriots, like that is what he thinks passes that humility I think is not speaking out, not calling everybody out when the panthers cut him late into free agency. He didn't say anything to them like that is what he means by being humble. Maybe he means being quiet, but to be honest. Like I was feel it. Cam got me a little hype. Hype, he got. Everybody fired up to the end. All that nonsense about hyenas and antelope I know is nonsense, but I loved it 'cause. I'm still football player I know you guys are journalists, and you're not. You don't relate you. Don't understand what that got me hype and I'm really ready to see cam out there and be the kill Eddie said he was wait a minute i. did not realize that like that stuff got you in that way? I thought that she was a little bit above it in a way that you care. You didn't realize that you get caught up with him running through every animal in the cracker box. I mean I saw. This pseudo intellectual exterior is a WHO gives hype about Hyena Talk, but my point to any patriots fan that would take issue with this is to your point Bo-. Like what have you been watching over the last ten years? Because if you're only relationship to Cam, Newton, or understanding of him was from what you see in the Dannon yogurt commercials than you clearly have not been paying attention. Attention to CAM. Newton is I would also say Let's see a star quarterback who is using a chip on his shoulder to drive him on the field. Sound familiar sounds a lot like Tom Brady and what he did for twenty plus year, nobody had any problem with it because it was relegated to screaming and all the history onyx on the field while he would act like. Of the year off of it, this is Cam. Embrace it also you know. They're all waiting in Boston to rehash the debt. Worsen part it's the worst. Strikes is the city that lives and nothing more than jumping on the dance obvious too late. Well, let's talk about passwords again and these peptides Ray Lewis. Have you over there ready to crab four game? I mean I caught right I. I call right towards the end of his career different.

"commander" Discussed on You Need a Budget
"Where we teach you four rules to help you. Stop living paycheck to paycheck. Get Out of debt and save more money those decisions between should we do this. Should we do that? Especially as it relates to balance that all with a partner It's tricky and it's not obvious and there are these really uncomfortable trade-offs that happen regularly. I hear it why now we have a thing called the vision doc. In it's kind of a steering document for the company it gives what is called Commander's intent and I wish I could remember the book that that phrase came from. But it's the idea that you d commander gives the intent but then everyone else that's following. That intent is making tiny little decisions along the way that I think the book was from chip and Dan Heath but I can't remember which one it was made to stick maybe can't remember anyway. Make a good book but the idea is that people are operating under commander's intent so they're presented with all these other problems and points where they need to make a decision and they can operate under the umbrella of the commander's intent of take the city. So what whenever you're presented with these decisions you really are just trying to say. Well I know my overall objective is take the city so I will do this in order to do that. You can think of different companies that have pretty solid commander's intent as it relates to their brand. I'm how it feels we at wine have we have. We're friendly. We try and use friendly words. We try not be. Stodgy we hire people that couldn't be. Stodgy if they tried so that. It's very natural for us. We don't have to try hard to be friendly at all but the idea of people then having to make lots and lots of decisions whether or not they give a refund whether or not they help someone on this way extended trial. Whatever it is. It's just like well we're friendly. That's our intent so behave accordingly. And you don't have to micromanage those decisions. I sale that about our vision dock and kind of these high level steering document. Because what we're really talking about is empowering people to make decisions where you wouldn't want to dictate every single possibility or every single policy every single nuance and flow chart every single decision. You just say we're friendly. Now go and do that and with the budget if you're struggling and kind of always having these debates about should we do this. We'll do that. What about this? What about that? You may want to back up a step and be really clear on what kind of the commander's intent is a larger goal a larger purpose. Then when you're presented with these small decisions you can shove it up against the idea of very clear high-level priorities and see what shakes out. It's just it's one way to kind of make a big decision. A heavy weighted decision that allows you to make smaller decisions much more rapidly and not suffer from any kind of decision fatigue so those those trade offs can be come tiring if you don't have some kind of a higher level commander's intent with which you can then make some of those smaller budgeting decisions. So I'd encourage you to give that a shot. Think think through a little bit kind of what are your almost like a budgeting mission statement. Think about it in that level. Like what at the at the highest level? What are you trying to achieve? And you'll find that gives you a lot of direction until next time following ups for rules and you will win financially. You've never budgeted like this..
"commander" Discussed on Reveal
"From the Center for Investigative Reporting and P R X. This is reveal veal. I'm Elliot when news first broke. The president trump talked to the new Ukrainian president about investigating Joe Biden trump unsurprisingly surprisingly took to his favourite medium twitter fire back a controversy tweeting quote now that the Democrats and the fake news media have gone bust on every other of their witch hunt schemes they are trying to start one just as ridiculous as the others calling it. The Ukraine witch hunt while at the same time trying to protect sleepy Joe. Oh Biden will fail again. We've seen this play out before trump attacks the media is spewing fake news or claiming alternative facts which can drown out negative news coverage but attacking the media isn't the only way trump uses social media since first launching his presidential campaign trump has has fired off countless tweet storms that are often so outrageous they become the leading news story thing about the height of the summer trump tweeted that that four congresswomen of color known collectively as the squad should go back to where they came from who tweeted Sunday should go totally broken and in crime infested places from which they can week or so later trump called the city of Baltimore a quote Disgusting Rat in Rhode invested mess trump remains unapologetic about those tweets here at reveal we held a big staff meetings and talk about how the media was covering trump and many of us agreed depots included that he's tweets about the congresswoman were racist. We also talked about how the media pivots away from other big stories when trump fires up his twitter feed my colleague Will Carlos has been taking a look at the stories that have been buried and largely forgotten and he joins me now hey well. Hey Al so let's go back to July July when President Trump tweeted about the squad in Baltimore what else was going on in the news. It was a pretty disastrous week for the trump administration. I mean for for example you had a big Paul coming out saying that trump was trailing his democratic rivals. You had trump's labor secretary having a step down after it was revealed that he was heavily involved in creating a plea deal for sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. It was the same week jury member that disastrous visit is it by the vice president pence to the detention facility in Texas where he's Kinda touring it especially a photo op and it was just a disaster forum so there's all this like negative embarrassing stuff happening at the same time but unite both know what we're talking about right yeah yeah the latest tweet storm so you went back and looked over the president's twitter feed. What did you find right well again and again and again we saw the same patent play out the the some negative or embarrassing new story that starts to break and immediately hidden by a just an offensive or an outrageous tweet that the president sends and then the media endlessly discusses so back to the tweets about the squad during that time was there one issue that really got overshadowed so this is is really the best example that we found story that should have gotten a lot more attention than it did? The president had vetoed bipartisan bills that would have limited the sal of weapons to Saudi Arabia to be used in the ongoing war in Yemen. It's a lot more of a complicated story to follow than what trump is stirring up on his twitter feed but it's a really important story yeah definitely is and now recent weeks. Yemen has gotten a lot more attention. That's after minority group that called the WHO `this took credit for boming a Saudi oilfield which knocked out half of the kingdom's oil output. Not many people were worried about whether that gas prices in the US are GonNa go up but you know back in July. This story was not getting a lot of traction right so now we're going to dedicate some time to it. Will you've been spending the last couple weeks digging into the story. What have you found well? I've been interviewing folks who've been following this all along and one of those people's journalists called Rohan Shaef who's been to Yemen women several times to cover the conflict and she lived there for awhile. It's almost like screaming in to avoid and that was what it was like. Reporting on Yemen and walking on these asteroids Rwanda one is now based in London. She leads the coverage at Belene cat an online investigative side. She's really good at breaking down the conflict in how it's is changed what the conflict is now is incredibly different to what it was four to five years different allies the the shifting allegiances of all of that has drastically changed over the course of the conflict but it is always incredibly good to start right at the beginning in order to understand don how polarized this conflict is doesn't seven per justice all across the country in Yemen called for the housing of the solid who had been a president fifty-three is they did so successfully and by two thousand twelve he signed off into his deputy had he who is now the president of Yemen to take his place now one would have assumed that the transition were to have been peaceful however it was anything but that so that was during the Arab Spring and the next development was that there was this huge rift between hardy not the new president who is backed by Saudi Arabia and the WHO who have support from Iran the WHO are fighting for religious minority group they say being being discriminated against well that rift between the Hutus and the new president quickly kind of metastasized into something much broader it changed from a civil war to conflict with a lot of influence from outside players especially given the attack on the oil facility inside Arabia. I think it's becoming more and more a proxy war. It wasn't a proxy war when this all begun so yeah at this point the two big players are Saudi Arabia on one side backed by the the US and on the other side. This is what makes the conflict in Yemen incredibly difficult to report on all these miniscule changes that require a lot of context and a lot of background knowledge in order to understand the significance in the current moment just to understand correctly the the United States states is mainly involved by supplying weapons and logistics. We don't have any troops on the ground or anything like that. Yeah that that's right and and that's probably one of the reasons why this hasn't sort of taken roots so strongly as a story in America but you know we are providing the bombs that are killing people since two thousand fifteen the US has been supporting the Saudi led coalition with things like targeting assistance and at least until recently mid air refueling you've got companies like Raytheon and Lockheed Martin that are supplying the bombs that are heading heading to the conflict and we're one shave has actually sent evidence of that firsthand one of my main roles when I was in Yemen was to document sites where Asterix at a cut to an arbitrary standard and out of the one hundred thirteen that I investigated about eighty of them had a US munition finishing tied to them and that alern always gives me the ability to sort of speak to the US's involvement in this so I want to note a couple of things here first of all this wasn't originally trump's war he basically inherited this situation from the Obama Administration and the US says it has legitimate JIM reasons to be involved in this conflict no Yemen's long been a hotbed for terrorist groups like Al Qaeda and so the US has been providing arms and support to Saudi Arabia for more seven four years. What's most concerned? American lawmakers is that those bombs have just been used pretty indiscriminately the Saudis have whether by accident accident or on purpose bombed everything from hospitals to apartment buildings to school buses all using American made weapons. You talked to some people both in Yemen. I'm in and with close ties to the country. So how is this war affecting daily life this radi transformed life in Yemen and one way of telling this story and kind of just how much the country has changed is to think about weddings yeah so my last trip I was sixteen. I was a teenager was summertime every time it was a wedding season so that's Jeon Hakeem who's the CO chair of the Yemeni American Alliance here in the San Francisco Bay area she was born in the US but she visited visited Yemen regularly growing up weddings and Yemen go on for about a week every day. It's a different outfit and dancing in the streets fireworks people our until the middle of the night stores Shut Down Block parties kids food music. It was just a ball along with that of course was before before the war and things today look very different. Joyous occasions like weddings have actually been attacked in strikes. Our families were killed. Hold ultimate. I'm talking about hundreds of whole everyone in skill. That's Nassar Arab. He's a local journalist and filmmaker who we reached in Sanaa inau the country's constitutional capital. He's covered this conflict for the New York Times and other publications bomb you while you are in the middle of the winning killing the bride and bridegroom and everyone all everyone this is what happened this is what it's like and also funerals you when you are carried the they did body to the to the grave with hundreds of people gathering and reciting Koran Saudi Arabia came and bombed them and all this has other consequences the UN says that up to twenty million people are dying of starvation in Yemen because of the impact of the war they say it's the worst humanitarian tearing crisis on the planet his John Hockey mcgann. She's the Yemeni American activist here in the bay area. You know if we were to look at a conference hall for example and and there are a hundred people in this conference room seventy five percent of these people do not have anything to eat and then if we multiply that times the population of Yemen which is a little over twenty two million people seventy five percent of Yemen's population are in need of humanitarian tearing assistance right away and nearly half of those that are in need our children so I know it feels like something that's so distant and far away and we just look at numbers and statistics but it's drastic and the need is is dire okay so we started out talking about President trump vetoing these bills to limit arms sales to Saudi Arabia. How much is congress done to try and intervene? You know there have been some efforts in Congress to make an impact and those were like the couple of times where if we were going to talk about Yemen we would talk about it when in two specific bills being discussed and voted on a big one was this bipartisan bill basically pull the US out of the conflict fleet completely back in April. This is important because Yemen faces still a potential famine of millions of people the worst humanitarian crisis in the world. That's Ro Khanna. The Congressman who introduced that first bill and the conflict in Yemen is one of the greatest sources of tension in the Middle East so solving the war in Yemen would do a lot to bringing greater peace to the Middle East and the fact that the Congress came together to pass a Senator Senator Sanders and my war powers resolution to stop a war should have led down the front page of every newspaper but this wasn't on the front page of of every newspaper right. I mean far from it. In this case. It didn't really matter because president trump ended up vetoing the bill right after it was passed and as reset before in July he went on to veto three other bills that would have and more than eight billion dollars in sales to Saudi Arabia normally the win the president vetoes a bill it gets a lot of attention and the media did cover the vetoes but that kind of got lost in the new cycle right I mean there really wasn't a whole lot of public awareness about this..
