Our Oligarchs Are So Full of Paradoxes, You’d Almost Think They Were Idiots

"And we're going to get back to John's Muir act like right now. John? Thanks, Alvin. Well, my next article is called our oligarchs are so full of paradoxes. You would almost think they're idiots. But I'm talking about my fellow Yale grads. I'm not going to my reunion next time I've never gone to any of them and is a very good reason to that. I'm glad to be away from all those people. I moved to Texas, so I don't have to live near any of them. I certainly don't want to go to Connecticut and visit them again. But I do get to see them and feel them and hear from them because they're running the country. They're mostly white, mostly from very wealthy or upper middle class families. They've inherited wealth and privilege. And now they've appointed themselves as the tribunes who will stick up for the underprivileged. For the needy for the helpless for the people that they stay far away from and their gated communities and their ultra 1% zip codes of San Francisco and New York, they never see anybody who's not wealthy unless they're cutting their lawn or taking care of their 1.2 children. But they do know that the people between the very poor and themselves the very rich are disgusting filthy racists who are full of hatred and bias and bitterness and need to be disempowered and disenfranchised and controlled and vaccinated and brainwashed and guided and directed. Need to have their children taken away from them as soon as possible and raised by the state to believe in the same things as the elite, because they really don't want to go through the bother of having their own children. They want to take offs. So in my piece it's stream dot org. I talk about how is it that we get such a monopoly of opinion? How is it that America's elites, America's oligarchy? Members of what I fondly call the hive. How do they obtain attain this hive mind?

Author Gregg Jarrett: John Durham Knows Just How Corrupt the FBI Is

"He wrote the books on Russian collusion and the witch hunt. Welcome back to America first with Greg Jarrett. I have to return Greg to one more and more question with regards to John Durham and the recent flurry of activities. This is a man who he stayed in the shadows for most of his career. There's only two photographs of them. Whatever you see, you know, an article about Darwin's the same photograph of him scowling coming out of a courtroom. So it's a guy looks to take his job seriously, has a pretty serious reputation, and one of the things he's known for as what was it former Connecticut U.S. attorney is that he puts feds in prison. So he has put corrupt FBI special agents and supervisory special agents in prison for breaking the law. As a result, I just want to what is it Jen Psaki says circle back on why you think the indictments are going to stay at this low level of people lying to the bureau and not actually target the people inside the bureau who were the architects and the implementers of the Russia hoax and the witch hunt? Is that just a gut sense of what you witnessed in the last two years? Well, you know, as much as I sometimes rely on confidential sources and leaked information is any journalist has terms to be commended. I mean, he's remained silent. He doesn't leap, no leaks come out of his investigation. He is a serious guy. He knows how corrupt the FBI is because he's put FBI folks behind bars. You know, I do think he is still looking at people at the FBI and others who lied in the Pfizer court weren't applications to surveillance spy on the Trump campaign. And I still think that's a possibility. You know, it would certainly be proper justice to hold people at the top, like mccabe and Comey and others. I mean, they signed off on these fisa warrants. Again, and again. They swore under penalty of perjury, the information was true. It wasn't true. I'll just give you one example. They vouched for the credibility over and over again of Christopher Steele. Yet, they didn't disclose to the court that they'd fired Christopher Steele as a confidential source for what for lying. So when you say to the goal, he's reliable in these credible, that's a lie. And they kept vouching for the veracity of the dossier when they knew and we now know that they knew that it was all a pack of

"The fault line is being exposed, the Democrats are doing an autopsy of why they lost in every possible direction from Edward durr to the Virginia governor's race to the lieutenant governor's race in Virginia.

It was crime. People are fed up with a liberal, progressive policies of the other party. This isn't the party of John F. Kennedy anymore. It's the party of AOC and Bernie Sanders, and they're rejecting that. And Joe Biden, they're rejecting that. I said this yesterday to Connor, and I said this to Andrew, I said, if the Democrats continue with this, and if they are unable to inoculate themselves, and remove the tumor, that is woke ism from their party. It is not out of the conversation that if conservatives do their job, and they don't, they're not run by a bunch of feckless morons, which is so often the case, we could end up winning states like New Jersey and Connecticut. We could win 40 out of 50

We had it was just like a nightmare. And into this nightmare, steps a young guy named Curtis Lee tell the story Curtis. It was a night manager at McDonald's in The Bronx. The Bronx was burning down at the time and in the 70s alone a million people fled from New York City. The biggest exit is a population ever. And rightfully so, gangs arson property values plummeting quality of life dismal. So I decided, hey, you know, something they've removed the transit police from the subways at night because we were on the brink of a fiscal collapse. So they were laying off a lot of civil servants. I said, oh, I'll start patrolling with a group of my closes at that McDonald's. We will call the burger boys. And we started to patrol this one particularly train the number four train, which had been nicknamed by the right as the muggers expressed. I thought I get the congressional Medal of Honor. Eric, I couldn't have been more hopelessly wrong. The mayor at that time, Ed Koch vilified us, called us vigilante, said we were the hell's angels. The police unions were upset. They didn't want us there, because they figured their furloughed employees would never be brought back. And so within the first 13 years until Rudy Giuliani got elected mayor. I got arrested 76 times. I got wooden shampoos, concrete facials, attitude, no readjustments. It was whenever you elected or in a changed all that. I always gotta stop you because nobody knows what you just said. And it's the funniest stuff I've ever heard. You said you got wooden shampoos.

I guess would be NBA is It looks like the bucks are going didn't tank for real and when they did. So. Or for real so far. Yeah. Yeah. That's what happens when you When you fall apart and you don't play your starters and you let yawn sit there and you get beat all throughout the you know restart. We all talked about this possibly happening and then they go down one, twenty, two to one ten to Orlando I I really truly believe. That they thought they were going to just walk all over Orlando and have no problems with them but Orlando is not that bad i. mean you chips had thirty five points the number one pick in the NBA draft Marquel folk he he Got Shipped out of the seventy sixers they could really use him right now he had fifteen three and five and terrence Ross chipped in eighteen points and they took down the bucks and game one. Did you watch that one Alex? Ya Guys. I'm far from knows predominance but at Nate alluded to very quickly you know Joe it's interesting. Obviously I'm Mr Blazer. When a team. Like Milwaukee and the bubble, and like the Lakers might be acceptable to you get hungry unselfish team that's focused. On naked a great job breaking down food check one of the best big men around. He had a terrible playoff last year. So they got some retribution came he came out gun. and. Then they have a parents rock. They're. Their like a version of Toronto obviously, they're not close to Toronto but I mean to say they they played very unselfishly. They play defense. It they got like a James NSF several guys that are kind of like on the second chance from other officers and they were really playing hard and and let's not forget they were missing off. The junk champion and sometime all star kind of like. A RADICAL Extremely sounds of Aaron Gordon who's usually their best player. So he wasn't even suited up in Orlando smacked him around.

You've wasted won two CY youngs in spite of the team behind him I mean it's a miracle. He's Cy Young Award winning wins go. Go Down with someone who was surprising wins in. Major League history I mean, yeah. You know the guy we look at his record outside of his era and all the stats is when lost look like he deserved to win a a CY young but he was the best pitcher in baseball and thank God the other the writers acknowledged that but you also don't want to you know. Put Him in prison here where he's not going to have a team behind him for ten years. But you gotTa Start Looking, I would look this year. I would definitely get rid of the veterans are stop using a lot of the veterans get look at look at these young guys. Put McNeil Second put Jd Davis Third. See what those guys can do See if they can. You know get become better defensive players if those positions and see what we can develop over the next you know what twenty or thirty or forty games. At least it gets them. Hope for the future of this season. Because right now it looks like they've taken a gigantic step back and it's not a good look for the mets fan. I mean that's getting. We're GONNA have a very short sampling but not much to build on and hope for for next year. So I think as a method that right right now it's been a failure to see them so far Got About Twenty minutes left and win the big things that came out today a suggestion. I don't know if you heard nate or Alex they're saying. Excuse me because of No College Cook intially. That we can see NFL football Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday. Monday. That about that and other these guys that are in favorite thinking that. They could set it up where you could have six bubbles or six or seven bubbles to put these guys.

"He's completely up and down like bats so I would. I would just unload. I wake up and cut canno- I. Know I know when money's involved it's not gonNA happen but you know he's wasting space. Yeah. Like they've said, just pull the plug start over and Joe you're spot on get guys in natural position and just kind of get get used to complain their original positions. So we'll be better next year. I mean. It's baseball just putting sport I mean you'd think about it. You gotta get the right combination of players. You know how to win or I said I mean look at the Yankees across down and they come back a little bit the reality I mean but I, mean they're still in first place and they got you got like Brett Gardner starting isn't hitting two hundred Gary Stage isn't hitting one hundred levered Labor tour just in one fifty I mean you know Those are three your major cogs and you're not hitting. They're not playing at all and still finding ways to win I. Don't know if it's about the mets. In their a veteran presence you know I remember when the Yankees made their big turn around the nineties. And I give a lot of credit to problem neo came in and talk those guys how to be professional how to go about their business how to win. He'd come from the reds and seeing the red winning world series. So we Jimmy key within with came over from Toronto and he had helped the Blue Jays win the world series and those two guys. Coming into a young team when jeeter was in its infancy, Bernie Williams was still young those guys they taught him how to be professional. They taught him the things they were going to have to do day in and day out to be winners in Major League Baseball and I think you've got young players like Alonzo. If you've got a young player, you know I It you gotta get guys in their veterans that really have been injured wars know how to win and know how to teach them how to be winners and I. think that's what the mets never do. Casinos never can win the guys. He was a follower new. York he was not a leader in new. York you gotta go out and find somebody out there i. Know, they're hard to find but you gotta by somebody who can teach US team at a win it can't be you can't just depend on a manager coming in and putting it in the right lineup every day and having it worked for him. I don't know about you guys. I really think that means a lot in baseball games. It's such a team such a sport. Built on failure you know the best hitters fail seven out of ten times. You know it's a it's a, it's a sport. You have to overcome adversity a lot and you have to work on a bad night. If over three, you gotta find a way to be one for four. So I think having a professional guy who knows how to win who fended wars is something that the mets could use that could turn around Keith Hernandez, did it for him in the eighties when he came over so I'd love to get that kind of a presence. What did you guys?.

"Don't think that anybody else's played better since this competition began nobody gave this the sons a chance nobody was talking about Devon Booker they're talking about him now. Okay. Get some of that I'm GonNa, fire away on the under underdog I. Know I never talked about that guy look but here we go. I'll try for one. Yeah I. Think I. Think me lower could make a case for the MVP Joe. Nate odd not only don't make it sound strange but I'm a big I'm a big believer in like you know how you speak to the Media how you speak your teammates. You know how you lead on and off the court he remember he went in there like really pissed off like hey. We are a playoff team. We're going in there to make the playoffs and we can win a championship. So I just see when you're that popular in that perspective of an athlete and your point guard, you know maybe that Collins or the. Obviously Carmelo his teammates are are feeding off of his passion I. Also, you know no top liberal up there. He's he's advocated about three five. Started thirty points about five boards about eight assists. So He's Much, bring of all right now he's moving the ball. Sometimes he gets up a ridiculous three I. Know they've brought that up he had a couple stickers the the last week, but they're they're back on a mission So yeah, I mean in in summary I think he could definitely be in that MVP. Hey when I hey I did I have to admit that when I was giving him a hard time it was before Sunday and I watched him score fifty one and delivered down the stretch. So I. GotTa Give Him Credit he he's been playing well too and he has been getting done. His goal was to get his team into the into the playoffs and he's done everything he can possibly do to do so I don't think he can go wrong with either. One of those guys are they're now losing those Dallas Mavericks. Like, ended to run and now gets guys I forgot about them Joe not not overdoing NBA tops tonight. But the Mavericks are definitely another team. Now they're up by one third. So yeah. When you have Tom Kitsch and porzingas you, you have to like just the best. Versatile athletes on the planet mark.

"So a lot of these far reaching faraway teams are now just they don't have to have that that travel problem. So that's another reason to help those things. May. Yeah. I both brought up about Toronto in There's there's always a the The the myth or About. Once you learn how to win it sticks with you you really you guys brought up golden state now they were loaded with talented and stuff but remember when they first one nobody knew who they were who they work. It was steph curry and everybody knew some of the names but they weren't all started when he first started winning became all stars and then they added on durant that. Stuff. Yeah. But for when they I win their first title, they were a young team union upcoming team and Toronto team even without Leonard They learned how to win last year I mean in other sports we've seen it you once you experience once you know the things you have to go through the sacrifices you have to make the kind of professionalism you have to show in day in and day out. It becomes easier to stay a winner and they end to become ended win championships. You think that's what we're seeing with Toronto the fact that they know how to get it done. So they know what they're doing out there and they're they're what you know the bucks doing they wanna be I mean they've won a championship, the bucks number one they think they know how to win a championship but never proven out and then those guys have the Rings Toronto. The rings is that what we're seeing Toronto the fact that they know their winters. I think that helps I mean I, think that you know reaching the Pinnacle Basketball last year obviously, they were playing into the late summer and they had to win big games. They had to beat the best teams in the east. They had to get to the finals and win those finals and they proved they could do it, and I definitely think that helps I mean they got confidence They've got a chip on their shoulder with you know collide Leonard being gone and wanting to prove they can win without him and then it wasn't just a one man show and everyone that knows basketball knows it wasn't but you've got the idiot sports writers that just put. Leonard had thirty points and that's you know the only highlight they they treat but you know that's not true. They team They were a team last year and losing one guy hurts but they've had other guys step up like Alex said Pascal crm. He's become a star and He's a twenty ten machine this year, and that's because he's getting more touches You know you don't have Leonard taking twenty five shots this year and there was times last year where Leonard was either hurt or held out and the raptors still kept on winning. So I think that you know what happened last year not only prepared them for this, but they're just their general mindset..

"So that's like their small market ninety got mellow on kind of his left leg. So he's like going all out and play defense. He was a ring and the West is kind of wide open for the first and what happened decade. So they're Kinda. I was so sick of watching the warriors get to the finals every year, and it's so I think intriguing to have a group of teams from both conferences that have a shot at not only making the finals but winning the championship and I think it's so cool to finally have some real competition instead of having the West Coast, all stars out there and golden state I mean, don't get me wrong. They were a good team but it was just like you know they've six all stars on the team and it's kind of. Like. Okay. Well, they're going to win. So you know who who are they going to beat from the east and it's not like that this year I mean I can I could do I mean I don't WanNa go on on record saying this but I guess I'm going to since we're on air I could easily see the blazers upsetting the Lakers or the clippers in an eight one match I could easily see that happening especially way the way those you know those three teams are playing right now the players have chances anybody. Yeah. Oh. No not let me ask you guys A. Question and. Being that we're all happy with how the bubble is as brought about some competitive basketball and we're looking for it. Is it is it something that if the Kobe had come along would we still have this kind of competition with the diaper teams that we're GonNa be in the playoffs? That we were seeing coming into the playoffs and it was just that of course, the NBA media machine that likes to promote certain teams. Certain players had as overlooking that. TORONTO, like everybody said, Toronto was having a great season but you had to go far and wide to find anybody to notice it. Everybody's talking about Clippers Lakers. Celtics Bucks. It was like nobody else in the league existed. Now in his bubble, we're seeing a lot more competition where we're going to see this. anyways even if the cove it hadn't happened or did Kobe. Make this actual actually available to us. What do you guys think I think it's really interesting joe it's almost like. The like the hardest working guys that don't have the biggest egos they're just inside that little bubble playing ball and I almost seems like some of the divas in the League you know they're out getting chicken wings, Kinda coast in like Anthony Davis.

"You know you got a d. with you know three or fourteen shooting or like last night she had twenty seven points Lebron had twenty nine coups, my head twenty five and they just played a lot better basketball i. mean they still struggled at times but you could see things. Starting to come together a little bit for that team and The last thing I will say is in defeat the the nuggets they had their leading score was PJ dosier which I don't know if you guys know a lot about him but I've seen him play for. Several. Years he was on that South Carolina basketball team that made the final four scenarios. Thornwell PJ dosier was a softy at the time. Dude he legit basketball player. I. Could not believe he didn't get drafted but he's Kinda bounced to a couple of teams and kind of found a home with the nuggets and had eighteen points and twenty seven minutes last night and I was really impressed with PJ dozer and I think I. Think he's going to get some more playing time as you see, the the. Games. On full down the down the stretch. What do you think our? Yeah. Great. Great stuff as always nate Yeah of just look at East to West where between. So starting on the east coast I gotTa Echo. The sentiments raptors are awesome I'm a massive hoops fan just you guys and I loved. It I mean the himself I. Think the cost thing is they've built a team of winners. So they get hungry guys. They've got a lot of international flavor like, St Tom obviously. So Search Baca he's now six men but he he you know these guys he was an all star like seventy years ago and that was content with being a six man he comes in and Bangs vanfleet. Ten feet tall. He's a great facilitator Kyle lowry Villanova's another great points. So again, Anti Knicks, they actually have four generals which is shocking and they're they don't have the team power forwards. Yet it and then. They get an elite round, Yam make one of the best power forwards on the outs I'm from Africa and the Knicks. You know kick like a French. Shrek Nichelino the knicks have no clue how to go overseas and get gems. So they are totally anti next in the West. yes.

"Yeah I think yeah, I just was thinking that you've got to start. You know I know we talked about it a little bit on Sunday but since then the undefeated sons have won two more games yesterday, they'd beat the thunder one, twenty, eight to one. Oh, one Devon Booker had thirty five points again Cameron Johnson first year player out of north, Carolina. He had eighteen points and soda and Mikhail Bridges, and they just ran all over the thunder and embarrassed them and then they played the sixers today and Booker had thirty five points again. So I I think you've just gotTa give. Credit. To the sons to their attitude to their work ethic that they've come into this bubble thing with kind of like the the nets in the sons, the two teams that both in both conferences that people just start shouldn't be there and I think that they kind of read those articles and and took that took the criticism and and took the talk of the chatter that was going around and just have channeled that into plane good basketball, and I don't think that you know at seven to know we can just call the the sons a joke. I mean they finally got de'andre eight. To go out there and play like the number one pick that he was He's playing great basketball and they've you know they've they've beaten everybody they put in front of them. So I think we can ignore them anymore and then like we talked about on Sunday the raptors keep playing and keep winning. They beat the bucks last night one, fourteen, one of six Your honest did not play but you know so that you know that's not a full buck squad but. Lowery Sergiy Baca and Vanfleet both sat out for the raptors. So that's what we talked about Sunday is the.

Way, what do you think makes even in the best case scenario? Let's see fifty now. So if I lived, it'd be a hundred. Years. Hopefully, before I die, it's supposed to be that way. That's the conservative me Louis. I mean we're going in charge. You know well, at least they brought it. They run and Kenny pain we used to coach the lustrous Kevin Knox.

What do you feel about? The Knicks overall or at least headed in the right direction slowly. I don't know man I. Mean I'm very interested to hear about this higher and making Kenny pain. The. Associated head coach I mean that too. But does idea I mean I doubt it maybe he's never he he doesn't have a big. history with that guy. So that kind of confuses me I mean, obviously, there's like eight Kentucky players on the roster. So maybe they thought. you know having Kenny pain there to help Julius randle be the point guard that he is that that will help. But I just think it's another horrible decision and I don't know how this helps I mean what shouldn't a guy be able to hire his own staff isn't that why you hired him because you trust him and believe that he can bring his own staff. I mean it just kind of sounded like The team announced this and it just sounded like something that was you know cooked up by by rose or by you know somebody else it didn't really seem like I didn't see typical out there announcing bringing on his boy you know it just it kind of seems weird.

"Marcus, what do you think about the proposition of playing in the in the springtime? Considering football happened or write this off and let's come back in the fall of twenty twenty one if it looks like it's going to be that. I think. In my opinion, you'll see more opt-outs than anything I. Mean sure it can they do it? Yeah but. The major player knowing that if he's eligible for the draft and he knows that he can be you know first round second round third round pick. They might think twice in. So you have a lot of bona fide players that are the lifeblood of your team who's going to opt out in. So that's that's GONNA be. Granted, that's why the coaches go out and recruit. So you can have A. Up for such injuries and stuff like that. But you know you're waiting to see your favorite player and he's like I don't know about this this cova stuff there's too many uncertainties and I know that I can. Stay. In. Shape I can. Get a pretty good drastic stock. It's going to be hard for these kids to say no, so I do I think they have a spring season if they put the right heads in there and they actually use logic Yak do yeah. I think you can do it but will they have all the bona fide players that we wanna say I don't think so I don't think so at all. Think think it'd be a waste of time realizing you just gotTa write it off at that point in. And move on because it's just. Like you said too many moving parts to meet people opting out right. The thing with the team we were talking about this on Sunday because you know we were we were saying know, People Mike Disagree with us and I'm the first one they raised my hand and say I'm looking at this from a selfish point I was looking forward to you the college football season I. enjoyed every year we had some special stuff that was be going on. So the show alone we were a little upset about it but you know these are not. Fourteen fifteen sixteen seventeen year olds eighteen to twenty three, twenty, four year old guys.

"You're going to get all this other stuff involved 'cause I mean, if I'm the guy out there risking my knees and my shoulder, every every Saturday afternoon while the other guy sitting on the sideline, a clipboard you know I understand it it it's just hard to deal with but I mean, how can you? Give. It equitably between the two positions. It's it's one of those things I that's why I'm a big believer. If you let these kids go to the, you know the car dealership and sign autographs paid for it or get paid your likeness like that like you said, that's cool. Then guys who are recognizable get it. But if you were to four string quarterback and you never played it down I, mean your scholarship should be enough for you get. Basically you've got a free ride to college and Let's say facts you gotta you gotTa you all parties you get all the girls and unique whatever. then. Maybe. That's the compromised. Maybe that's a compromise. Maybe you're right. How can you figure out how equitable for all these players and maybe they thought maybe that was. We have the most the most recognized, the most marketable they'll get through do because they're putting a lot of his fans in the seats. So maybe that was that was the compromise there I don't know, but it's star it's tough. It's tough to figure out how to smarter people than me are GonNa have to figure it out know Well Yeah they they've got a they. The one argument is you know where this money going to come from for these kids and where we're GONNA get this money I mean the money's there. These coaches are making millions upon millions of dollars if we just use marcus has been affiliated with the University of Tennessee. So if we just use that example, the University of Tennessee has paid millions of dollars for people to not coach I mean, let's be honest. Think about it dairy fully duly was getting paid for four five years to be the coach but. Doug Jones was getting paid is still getting paid a hundred grand a month to not coach. So you can pay these guys not coach this horrible team. Then you can certainly pay these players who are selling jerseys who are you know selling advertisements for the university for the NCAA for the conference I. Mean there's money out there and you're wasting money. We were paying athletic director hundred grand a month to not at direct. So I mean you can't tell me. There's no cash Jim Harbaugh can't even win his side of the conference and he makes ten million dollars a year and he's a joke. He has never been to Buckeyes. He will never beat the Buckeyes. He was the only one that was jumping up and down today when the verdict came down because he's like, Oh, I'm not going get sixty nine points hung on me this year in Ann Arbor because I don't have to buy the book is but I. Like my ten million I mean these guys are still getting paid. That's what I WANNA know does Jim Harbaugh get ten million dollars for not coaching 'cause I'm guessing they're not gonNA pull his salary are they No I don't think I. Got Two words for you. Me Charlie Weis. Food. He's got paid. Ten Year contract when he won with Tyrone Williams women willing players and then they paid him, you know what?
