Remembering Fallen Plants with Ken Druse A Way to Garden With Margaret Roach June 1, 2020
"In your introduction you were talking about just turquoise labels yeah there's so many labels and I mean I can't even I can't even talk about it. I mean think and plant delights for example. Yes I think that. Half of the herbaceous plants I've planted or more have died. I have one oriental. Poppy and I've probably tried to grow. I duNno seven. Ten Oriental poppies out. And you know in those days. We were so intrigued with the latest thing the newest thing the untried and true thing so a lot of the things that we lost were not really weren't going to be good garden plants but some of them were right along and some of them just weren't tested yet in our areas and so on and so forth but we gave it ago we stretched. We pushed the limits and gave it a go. Think of we had that money back but we had the experience. We got the memories Hon. I remember going to the garden of John Kerry who who died recently crate gardener in Texas and His Garden Spin Open to the public for many many years. And it was called Pecker Wood. And now it's called the John Ferry Garden in honor of him and in one bed they had plants in this one area of this one bad things quite prominent but there were this. There was this aggregation of labels all stuck in the ground. Like soldiers tight together. You know like a pin cushion but giant right and it was hilarious and it was all the plants that were gone It was the memory of those plants. It was a graveyard mouse graveyard. Yeah the white labels all lined up look like tombstones. So let's talk about some of them. Actually you know what should I do poetic reading since we've already had some music so? I do a poetic. Reading is if if this is my favorite poem. I think ever it is. And it's by the Great. Jeffrey be Charlesworth. Also Sadly departed a great gardener garden. Quite near mind that I visited. I was lucky enough to visit. He was a leader in the North American Rock Gardens Society. Did you ever meet him? Yes I did wonderful. Yeah so he wrote this. This poem called. Why did my plant die? You're already laughing trod on it. Yeah so here's how it goes. You walked to close. You tried on it. You dropped a piece of sod on it. You hold it down you weeded it. You planted it the wrong way up. You grew it in a Yogurt Cup but you forgot to make a whole. The soggy compost took its toll. September storm November drought. It heaved in March. The roots popped out you watered. With urbicide you scattered bonemeal and wide attracting local omnivores who eight-year plant and stayed for more. She left it. Baking in the Sun while you departed at a run to find a spade perhaps a trowel. Meanwhile the plant threw in the towel. You planted it with crown. Too High. The soil washed off. That explains why to High Ph at hated line. Elastic needs a gentler climb. He left the root ball wrapped in plastic. You broke the routes. They're not elastic. You Walk to close you try to get you dropped a piece of sod on it. You splash the plant with more oil. You should do something to your soil too rich to poor such wretched health. Your Silas Clay. Soil is filth. Your plant was eaten by a slug. The growing point contained a bug. These aphids are controlled by aunts. Who Milk the juice. It kills the plants in early spring your gardens mud. You walked around. That's not much good with heat and light. You hurried it. You worry that you buried it. The poor plant missed the mountain air. No heat no summer mugs up there you over fed it ten ten ten forgot to water it again. You hit it sharply with the hose. You used a hand without arose. Perhaps you sprinkled from above. You should have talked to it with love. The nursery mailed it without roots. You killed it with those gardening boots you walked to close you trod on it. You dropped a piece of sod on it. I'm crying. I just love him. I just loved him and his books. Were the opinionated Gardner. Was that what his greatest book was. That was the name of it. You mentioned Rock Garden. Rock gardeners are really they? They like to be punished. They tried artists plants of all they have a high hardest group plants from seed. And yes. Oh My Gosh. I can't even keep Diana's alive more than one year right. Yeah yeah so so okay so. Let's yeah plant slightly over there Hon. No I was thinking about over the years. It's hard to remember because they're not here right. And so you know you're looking. You think what I but I was thinking and I remember. I had a collection of Oak Leaf. Hydrangea and my favorite. Was snowflake semi double double really and it was about six feet tall. And I discovered after hurricane Irene. That hydrangea corker Is Flood intolerant? I lost them all. Oh and just recently. I got a text from my friend. Heidi and it had a photograph of something blooming in it and it was my favorite Siberian Iris. Which is a kind of short one. Among summer sky from nine hundred thirty five and I had that plan for about forty years but when I planted here it got a little shady better also got four and I lost it and the thing about that is if you don't plants and it was hard for me. I got that from someone in from an old garden because it's not easy to well now it's a little easier to find that it wasn't then it all it sky blue and white just beautiful and now. I can get it back because I shared that plant. I was thinking about arose that grew for many years. It's a rambler kind of purple colored. Rambler you'll Shin Blau. I believe you say V. E. L. C. H. E. N. B. L. A. You may be awesome. Yeah and and he just it was just that and I can just see the place I mean I could see out the window the place where it stood all those years where grew all those years and I think I don't even know what I don't even know if I remember what befell it you know but I keep wondering like with your IRA why don't I have it again. Why didn't I replace it right away? says it was just so beautiful. It was a a feature in the flower garden at Wave Hill. That was the first place I had seen it in New York City and so I had gotten it because I was so enchanted by it there. So that's a plant. I don't know if I killed it. I don't I'M NOT GONNA
A Witch and a Curse
"Today. I continue my investigation into the world of physical and paranormal with a witch at a curse organs. Lafayette Pioneer Cemetery was established in eighteen. Fifty local. Say the cemetery is haunted by a woman who was hanged after being accused of being a witch and that her ghost hoste cemetery however research has recently revealed that it was her son who was hanged for murder both his mother and wife sworn testimony claimed he was elsewhere when the crime was committed but a jury of his peers convicted him nonetheless Richard Gusts marble was hung by the neck until debt. For the axe murder of shopkeeper David corker but the hanging didn't go well the thirty witnesses who watched the execution described how the news is not slipped under his chin instead of breaking his neck. They watched him for eighteen minutes as he strangled. Death still was Richard. Smother a witch. She did cursed the town to misfortune to burn three times at the time of the hanging hills. County seat was Lafayette but just one year after the hanging the town loss that honored to Mcminnville to date. Lafayette Oregon has burned to the ground. Twice the spirit of Richard's mother on a marble has been seen wandering through the graveyard perhaps searching for the spirit of her son. Who KNOWS MISS? You say just another ghost story. Maybe not visitors claim that they have seen her others that they've heard her laughing. One visitor claims she recorded. Anna's voice telling her to run home. Some of those who say they were chased from. The cemetery have revealed cuts across their back and a marble flood. Lafayette years on this mortal coil in Jacksonville Oregon where she died in one thousand nine hundred sixteen and was buried in the Jacksonville cemetery today. The Lafayette Pioneer cemetery remains unchanged since the hanging and there are still reports of which sightings but few visitors venture past the no trespassing sign that's been posted at the
A MedTech Company That Thinks Like a Biopharma
"David. Thanks for joining US. For Greater Speaker. Thanks for having me. We're GONNA talk about orchestra. Biomed life at the intersection of Med tech and biopharmaceuticals and your recent financing events. Let's start with Arkestra more. Broadly though how do you describe the company? So it's a great question something since we founded the company and started this business about a year and a half ago. We spent a lot of time on because It's not an easy answer. But these really were describing ourselves as a strategic development partner to market leaders in the MED tech space We are a biomedical Innovation Company. And the core of what we do is the development of high impact products for major unmet needs enlarge Medical Condition Large Market. Major medical conditions lead products focus on arteries the number one killer in the world and hypertension the number one. Contributing risk factor. But our business model really and I started with the strategic partner industry is about really enabling the we think more capital efficient. The more Successful realization of these products bringing them to patients into physicians through strategic partnerships with established commercial market leaders. And where we'RE GONNA share the risk and share the rewards share the challenges development commercialization. And we think that's really at this point. The key differentiator. Something novel that we're bringing to the metric industry that we think is important innovation in and of itself In terms of being able to do a better job of advancing a pipeline of products and really seeing those products get whether to go which is to the market. The company's product lines have traditionally been considered medical devices. These are devices though that that have therapeutic purposes. Do you think there's a a valuation or opportunity penalty for being thought of as a medical device company? Well I think that's a great question because while healthcare innovation itself encompasses You know biopharmaceutical development Development Gene therapy medical technology medical devices through. You're talking about and more recently I think. Great advances in digital health. All of those different types of innovations. I think are thought of differently in terms of business model pathway to value and evaluation and medical technology medical devices particularly in the last say ten plus years. I I think the view In terms of valuation changed significantly if we look at that Either a capital market for a strategic perspective not focus has been on revenue and revenue growth is a major driver value. If you look at how any Wall Street analysts look emerging growth net tech and really meant take over all that revenue. Multiple is a big driver when we think about Bio Pharma. Look at you know we shipped over and say have Wall Street. Value Buyer farmer. I'm generally you're GONNA see valuations built off of long term probability and risk adjusted discounted cash flows and so one valuation metric is very much about the present. What is this product and this company generating with product in terms of revenue today and in the near future? What are the prospects for grow? But we we look at the other valuation methodology Bio Pharma. It's really a forward value. It's really a forward thinking forward looking value and the potential of the product. I think is captured much more in that long-term DCF those differences evaluation have a big impact on the whole cascade all the way down to early stage innovation and how you funders stage. I if you if you use a DC F- approach you in theory contained and very early stage product and we see this biotech even preclinical stage products with the potential and And be able to apply significant values and therefore And she access to a lot of capital to development to develop them at a relatively low cost capital the MED tech or medical device base. There really hasn't been the case. And and last ten years I think that's really impacted the availability of capital for early ideas and certainly more importantly availability of capital to fund the Mark Spencer Parts OF THE PROCESS LATE STAGE. Clinical Valentine the pursuit of regulatory approvals and then market entry and and so when we conceived the businessman Corker biomed and our strategy was really looking at those two different approaches the value and trying to see if we could create a business model. Four things that yes would be thought of as medical devices. Our products are a little. You know I guess unconventional you know drug device combination product violent tonic therapy and yes the market that we factor traditional medical device market. The business model is really about. How do we approach realizing value in a different way where we have her create way of you? Value is to a bio Pharma lands a longer term powered value of our future cash flow potential. Rather than. What are we doing today? You're in the very near future terms of rabid. I think it's fair to say that. The medical device industry hasn't been as successful at forging leveraging partnerships and licensing opportunities the way the biopharmaceutical industry. Has I imagine part of the reason for this is the cost and time to develop products. Hasn't been as daunting. Is this the case when you're dealing with the types of drug device combinations or something that's like a bio electric device? That's serving a therapeutic function. I don't think it necessarily just about the cost or the challenges. Alison I think. are actually advantages. I would agree in terms of cost. Time regulatory hurdles for devices I think those advantages probably been compressed. A little bit particularly for as you talk about a combination or or certainly even PMA class three devices or have significant impact.
Trump survives impeachment: US president cleared of both charges
"That all of this is done what happens now for the trump presidency. I mean for the rest of his term. How're you expecting it to be different than and it might have been well in a way? This is like a turbo charge for president trump because he survived this gauntlet this impeachment proceeding without without having to be removed from office. And therefore he's waking up feeling emboldened and empowered and feels a conviction that everything he does is right. He is at the strongest point politically today that he's been in some time. The Gallup poll has his approval rating at forty percent which is sending shivers through the Spines of Democrats Crafts Around the country there are good feelings in the country about the economy which continues to home along to report to you tonight that our economy is the best I it has ever been. He had a pretty powerful economic message in a state of the Union. Even though a lot of it was exaggerated and he made claims that are not true. Jobs are booming. Income Poverty is plummeting. Crime is falling confidences surging. It was a selling argument. It for reelection and our country is thriving and highly respected again and so we can expect I think the president into continue to to sound teams into seek retaliation against all of those. He felt have wronged him in. It's impeachment process with this acquittal. How is that likely to change the office of the Presidency broadly? It's a good question because the evidence about trump's activity in Ukraine is. There's no dispute dispute about what he did. The evidence is clear the testimony was clear. Trump himself has admitted on camera that he wanted the Ukrainian government to do an investigation into his political political opponent and in fact he called on the Chinese government to do the same so what he did is clear what happened is the Republicans in the Senate made a political calculation about out not removing him from office for it that what he did doesn't amount to an impeachable offense and I spent some time in the last days interviewing historians and they said this is a major watershed moment in our nation's history because the way the founders set up our government setup. Our Constitution was to punish and remove presidents. Who who do exactly what? Donald Trump has been proven to have done with Ukraine. This is a system of checks and balances and what's happened is the legislative branch under Republican. Look in control in the Senate is no longer holding the president accountable they're becoming an instrument to propel his power and perpetuate his power and that's concerning to historians it's concerning to legal experts and it certainly would set a precedent. I would imagine for future presidents who will say look if trump got away with this I can get away with it too and it is just an expansion of that sort of executive power which is troubling to those who study the framers and the Constitution. Do you think I mean with a different president. You know ten years twenty years from now our future executive branches likely to think back to this moment and say I can do this. It's okay I'm not going to get in trouble. You know. They they could and we may not even have to look to future presidents for that. President trump has another ten months seven months in office. He may have another four years beyond that and there's no telling what he might try to do going forward because he's escaped accountability this time in the Russia investigation. You know the Muller Team documented did all of these examples for really proven examples where the president sought to obstruct justice but did not charge him or indict him because he's a sitting president narrow justice assists department guidelines about that. Well the very next day after Robert Mueller testified in Congress about this trump picked up the phone and called the Ukrainian president asking for the favor the political favors so he the conclusion he drew from the Muller Investigation and his lack of any legal punishment in that regard was that he can get away with with what he wants to do. He's the president if he does it so be it and the Republicans in on Capitol Hill or are there to support and protect him. So can you talk us through. How the president's President's own lawyers argued that the Senate basically doesn't have the power to to check the president one of the most striking moments in the president's defense came when one of his lawyers? Alan Dershowitz a noted criminal lawyer you've seen him on. TV for years Came to the floor of the Senate and advanced an argument that a lot of legal experts that said was dubious every public official that I know believes that his election is in the public interest. And mostly right your elections in the public interest. He said if the president does something that will help his reelection therefore is in the best interest of the country and if if a president does something which he believes will help him get elected in the public interest. He cannot be held or rather be impeached for for that action that cannot be the kind of quid pro. Quo that results in impeachment. And so that's a blanket. Excuse use for the president to do what he did with Ukraine but obviously anything else that the president deems to be in the interest of his reelection that is an argument that Dershowitz had to kind of walk back a little bit In in some comments he made the next day and he got a lot of heat from legal scholars who said that's just a completely baloney argument argument with no constitutional grounding but it is indicative. I think of how President Trump himself views his power and views his authority as the president and commander-in-chief founder and chief. Did we see a lot of senators latching onto that argument. A few did Actually the Republican senators of course but a few parroted the Dershowitz line came as a way of defending the president and saying basically he's president he can do whatever he wants for his reelection because getting him reelected is in the best interest of our country. What about the way that? The impeachment trial played out in the Senate. The fact that there were no new documents that there were no witnesses is that likely also to set. Its own kind of precedent for or the way that impeachment is handled in the future. Certainly we've only had an impeachment trial three times in our history and so there's not really a blueprint door protocol. Offer how to go about doing this. And and the Senate leaders along with the chief justice of the Supreme Court to kind of change and adapt the rules as they went along to figure out how this would work mark and the Democrats say this was a complete sham. Trial that Mitch. McConnell designed it from the get-go to move quickly to get to a very fast acquittal to turn the page to save trump into move on with the legislative business not to delve into the details. Not To really scrutinize the evidence. The most surprising thing I think watching the Sahlin fold the last few weeks that John Bolton came forward publicly or at least in the manuscript of his book which leaked out through the media with new information right. He's a first first hand witness to what the president wanted done and Ukraine. He offered to testify before the Senate or at least indicated he would if if asked. Here's somebody who could have come forward to provide a new to account that would have provided new evidence to this case and there was no interest among the Republican majority in the Senate to hear what he had to say. I don't believe the testimony is necessary. The house else managers have a burden of proof a burden of proof to prove their case they had fallen woefully short. We now have allegations from Mr Bolton. I think they would have more credibility if the allegations came from someone else. There is no new information in my opinion based on what John Bolton has known but today in an effort to generate interest in a book have selectively released. Information that that to me doesn't go beyond what we've seen in the seventeen witnesses who've already testify only two. Republican senators voted to allow witnesses. Mitt Romney and and Susan Collins of Maine came to what extent is the Senate giving up the power that they have to oversee the president of provide any kind of check on the president. Give us a sense of the power that's been given up with the smooth you know they've they've been giving up power to this president for three years now in in part because Republicans threat the party live in fear of him. He has such an intensity of support within the Republican base and approval rating among Republicans of eighty to ninety percent and he follows these things very closely and vows to retaliate and shows that he can punish people if they betray him across him. Just ask former Senator Jeff Flake or former senator Bob corker. So there's that fear factor in the Senate and and what they've done to adapt to that is is not to stand up to him not to ever say he's wrong and in turn. They're getting some of their agenda through right. They're getting tax cuts passed. They're getting a lot of conservative. Justices installed hold onto the federal judiciary. They feel like Mitch. McConnell certainly feels like this is an opportunity to advance the conservative agenda but they just need to placate eight trump and played a trump and keep him calm but in so doing they're giving up their power of accountability. And it's certainly not the way that the framers and the founders imagined Dr our system of government working in Democracy Phil Rocker is the White House. Bureau chief for the Post. His new book written with Carol Lennox is called a very stateful genius. Donald J trump's testing of America. It's out in stores now.
Treatment and Recovery from Chemsex Addiction
"Welcome to the Mind podcast might guess. Today is David Fawcett and he is going to talk about Kim Sex addiction and what that means and what. That's all about David. Do you WANNA introduce this yourself until it's a little bit about you. Yes thanks so much. A Name is David Fawcett. I'm a licensed clinical social worker and sexologist sex therapist and I worked in the his field for about thirty years the last twenty years or so. That was working with a lot of men who sexually vanity use methamphetamine and other drugs and high risk sex and that developed a solo interest of mine in what is now called chem sex but we can talk more about what that means. But that's been my work for the last twenty years or so. How did you start? Start to discover this as an issue. And how did this kind of come about for you. And why is this a passion for you. Yeah thanks. I'm in recovery myself although not from Methamphetamine ben for a long time and I had added a real passion in working with a lot of gay men who were experiencing what a shame from lie stigma and corker. HIV which goes with lot of Irish sex and drug use and and that was my clientele basically for twenty years. The sex there is people were coming to me for sexual problems and with little history. We discovered that the sex from were caused by methamphetamine. A lot of the other drug use so oftentimes rather than come seeking help for the drugs. They came from the sex problems but that led right into this fusion that I was discovering between sexual behavior drug use and the devastation it caused for these individuals. Okay so let's talk a little bit about what that looks like when we say chem mm sacks and fusion and what does that mean right so what I really discovered is that we have addiction to substances. We have addiction to behaviors like like sex and each of those treated slightly differently. But really this is the third thing in my opinion where people simultaneously using drugs. And almost always an amphetamine is in the mix there and combining with sex is actually a fusion or abandoning of those that occurs in the brain neurologically those pathways become connected and so that behavior. Stage really is one set of behaviors and so if we take the traditional approach of getting somebody clean from their drug problems and hope the sex from take care of themselves. They don't because the two are so fused if someone gets cleaned oftentimes our sexual life goes with it. And that's the problem. People were coming before they were in a year clean. Eighteen months clean had virtually no sexual desire because that had been so fused with their drug use when they give up the drugs. They're excellent with right and so the whole thing so tell me a little bit when you say fused. Can you give me an example of how that might look like in a person who's struggling with this what that would look like sure and so this happens because of dope managed neuro transmitters. That's essentially that really acts. We teach our dog had into a trick if the dog sits and I have a treat it's dopamine that bonds those two things together and so if someone is acting out sexually using drugs those two things get bonded the way it looks. Is that if I'm in that state where they become paired or fused. If I see a sexy person on the street I may get a tremendous craving to get high or if I see see A SYRINGE IF I've been injection drug user I may get a sexual urge at the same time the two go hand in here and so one really triggers the other and that is missile bundle of Hughes in triggers. That really make a complicated for someone and then as I said in recovery because if we don't treat that really from sex therapy perspective people's sex lives have been so kind of re set by that super stimulation of sex and drugs. That nothing normal is appealing anymore. It's a very similar. The process. We see when sexton point addiction where the super stimulation occurs. In the brain to reboot in recovery right. How does this get introduced into a person's NHS life I mean? They're having sex than they used drugs together. And then that becomes a combo. or where do we see this and I guess I'm asking. How does it manifest itself? How does is a gro or how does it become this fused together right? I think certainly among many sexiest man is a sole confusion of the APPS. You know they a hook up APPs combined with the right use and you can go in those and discover basically with Coding Party in play people that are looking not only connect with drugs but that sex as well and so oftentimes this kind of introduce organically like that and it's not a problem just among gay men as best sexual world we think of you know had in treatment we've had heterosexual the guys who use cocaine and get see prostitutes. You don't get that same Russia. The whole endeavour so people discover quite quickly. The other way I've seen it introduced is through tolerance which we see addiction in general but where people kind of what was doing it for them. Yesterday doesn't quite as exciting anymore. up the ante a little bit Escalate of were highest sex. Or maybe more taboo things just to get stimulation go right so I guess vanilla sex gets boring or something in the add this element to it. And then that creates a heightened sense of pleasure intensity they start chasing that that that Combo that's exactly right and that becomes kind of new baseline and anything less than that is not only boring or not interesting. But almost even depressant depressant and so people's lives what used to give them pleasure including their their human partners. Don't do that anymore even the food. There's a state we call Anhedonia where the people are just. Everything's kind of great again experience pleasure and so that's quite common. So what happens in the brain as you start to fuse these things together. What's going going on? 'cause you're talking about Antonia and can you defy I for any listeners. Who Don't know what that is? What is an Danica? And then let's talk about how the brain right brings brings us all together. So Antonio is the state where people just can't experienced any pleasure. Life is kind of a gray. Everything's depressing or sad and I'm just happy or Perky. Oh bright and people that suggested emotional state. That's often do in this where we see. This addictions is the brain actually shedding receptors without getting into the weeds too much dopamine the neurotransmitter that makes us feel good that happens with cocaine with methamphetamine another stimulants it releases a lot of dopamine mean sex orgasm Jesus dopamine and makes us feel good. What happens with addiction particularly with Kim Sex? In a very profound way that this level of volume volume literal volume stimulation coming at the brain and so it actually sheds doping receptors an effort to control the amount of volume. It's getting stimulation and so that controls and to some extent but if we take away the stimulation if somebody gets clean and sober or stops acting out sexually that simulations drop to such a level that does even register and that's when that depressive state kicks

If you're like me you have way too many subscription services, and you don't even know subscribe to how to handle it all. I just had a really interesting conversation with Jared Newman. He runs the cord cutter weekly newsletter in. He's got a great tip. Listen to our conversation. I was really intrigued by your topic today, which was the best way to manage your subscriptions is the subscribe in cancel immediately. You want to tell everybody what you're thinking. They're sure so this is one of those things that if you're kind of a nerd about court, cutting and streaming services that light be common knowledge to you. But one of those things where I realized he talked to people and everybody realizes that you don't have to find a per service, and then remind yourself thirty days later, or whatever to cancel it. These are all prepaid non paraded surfaces. So you can just cancel immediately and enjoy your month and not get on medic. Built at the end. No, it's a great idea, because many of us don't even know what we subscribe to correct. Yeah. I think especially now some of these new services like apple TV channels, and Amazon channels. They kind of they make it so easy to sign up for services like HBO and Showtime, that it's like you might not even realize that you started a trial for something. Or you know where you even subscribed to in the first place. So, yeah, the better the more you can stay on top of it, the better, you know, they make it really hard. I subscribe to apple music, so that I could I had to look at it for an article I was writing, and I can't it. So I thought, but then it didn't go through. And then I was on vacation, I noticed they just charge me, another ten dollars a why are they charging me for this thing, don't use? So then he go into the app to try to, to unsubscribe there. No, you can't do that. And I don't even remember where I ended up, but it was not easy at all. Yeah. And you know, it's, it's, it's, it's easier with three services than it is with with cable.

But, you know, you make these little trade offs so that you can save the money. So it's, it's, it's good that you can do that. How many services do you subscribe to?

Turkey Calls for Arrest of Aides to Saudi Crown Prince in Khashoggi Killing
"A measure that says the US Saudi Arabia's crown prince is complicit in the killing of the journalist Khashoggi. What do you make of that? I have talked about this whole MBA smaller bin Salman for a long time. I have since day one been a denounce Mohammed bin Salman, I lived in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia arena company there. I in congress. I worked for Saudi Arabia. I knew from day one. He was not what the media was portraying him as the great liberator of women that was nonsense. He wasn't. He allowed them to drive which half the people don't want to drive over there. Anyway, you know, have drivers. But. Everything he had the media eating out of his hand expensive lobby groups making him look good. He has always been known over. There is a monster. He imprisoned his own mother under house arrest because he was warning the king who has dementia. To not let him be the crown prince think about a second. And then he imprisoned people in the Ritz Carlton extorted billions from them. And they and they killed a man in the Ritz Carlton, I think even beaten to death or something. From day one. I I really felt usually it's you know, you're innocent token, proven guilty. I felt they won behind this. And I watched Lindsey Graham and Senator corker, and they came out in no uncertain terms. They said he would be convicted in thirty minutes in court. They have seen some private secret information that I am sure has some type of followed either his voice talking some type of solid connection to ordering the murder of kashogi. And I've gotta tell you Kate. President Trump is on the wrong side of this issue. And it is straining night talked to some people on the hill today. It is super straining his entire relationship with a lot of Republicans alone over this thing they have just went too far his son-in-law Jared Kushner is best friends with Mohammed bin Salman, by the way in Saudi Arabia behind his back. They're calling him instead of 'em Bs is he likes to be called the calling him Mr. bone saw. Wow.
U.S. senators conclude the Saudi crown prince ordered journalist’s killing
"To do with the death of journalist Jamal kashogi. In fact, Senator Lindsey Graham yesterday said there wasn't a smoking gun. There's a smoking saw. But that almost directly contradicts what the president had been saying. Yeah, that's right. A pretty. A remarkable moment on Capitol Hill yesterday. CIA briefing for select group of senators with director Gina apple after weeks really of them demanding answers from the administration. A what we know about involvement of Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin soman in this murder plot. They finally got some answers that small group of senators, and when they walked out of the briefing, they seem to be more furious than they were going into it. And then talking about just Democrats as you said Republicans allies of the president like Lindsey Graham saying that you'd have to be willfully blind to not come to the conclusion that NBS with intricately involved in this plot as you said that directly contradicts not the president. But his top advisors, Mike Pompeo secretary of state teams Mattis the Defense Secretary, and it really set a showdown between congress and the administration over what to do next with a relationship in Saudi Arabia. Well, before we even get into that going back to Mike Pompeo when he came out last week and made a statement or lack thereof. There was not. Steve that was made when it wasn't the CIA director Gina hospital a lot of people scratch their heads like, hey, wait a minute. Which isn't she? The beep be the one who's giving us all the information shouldn't her department be the one who's giving us this in. And it was just strange that. She wasn't the lead on that that it was Pompeii. Oh, and then he was so sort of cagey about everything. Yeah. Exactly. And then there were some reports at the White House should actually held Gina hassle back from going to deny that. Official beer telling me that hassle chose not to go, and it could be a little bit of both ending hassle. Probably didn't wanna be played off of the president. You know, she obviously would stick to what the intelligence agency has has compiled is and that could be seen two country country for President Trump has said publicly, and instead the had this class by briefing with Mike Pompeo and James Mattis for all one hundred senators, but but they last so unsatisfied that it builds up pressure on the administration over the last couple of days to do something to you know, really win back those Republicans like Bob corker in Lindsey Graham, and that's what led to the briefing yesterday. But as you said, they all laughed even more angry than before. So this saga will continue Connor to what are you do? So they're mad. All right, fine. Everybody's upset. Everybody's upset that it seems that the president isn't making full acknowledgement that the Saudi Crown prince had something to do with this. Everybody's upset on both sides fine. But from a geopolitical standpoint, you also have to wonder is it does it matter though. Even if the president did is it it doesn't make him look better to say, hey, crown prince, I know you had something to do with it. You know, the evidence is right here in black and white. I know you did. But I'm going to have to plug my nose on this one and just move on. Because I know it's the right thing to do when it could be comes to relations would that be enough to satisfy these senators on both sides who are so angry about this investigation. I think that had been the administration's reaction from the start that we wouldn't be in this position. And it could have been enough because I think a lot of those Republicans know that their relationship with Saudi Arabia is so important, and it is especially vital to the president's national security strategy his foreign policy they rely on the Saudis to counter Iran's throughout the Middle East. So if that was if that was the reaction right away fine. I think you know, that people could put their noses and go along especially because the Saudis have said consistently NBS, the crown prince is not going anywhere. And so they I think would learn to deal with it in a way if they hadn't felt so betrayed and so stone wall by the administration and by the Saudis, but but from the beginning the Saudis have have lied covered up their involvement. And then they admitted that there, you know, Saudi officials were responsible, but they said it was an accident. And then they admitted it wasn't an accident. It was a rogue operation. The the fact that they have continued to live threat. It has made it very hard now for these Senate Republicans to not want to go after them. But you're right broader broader terms in the region, if the US pol- support from the Saudis, they're left hung to dry and a lot of different places. We do need Saudi Arabia for a couple of different things and other partners. Other countries will be really willing to take on that partnership. Instead you saw Ladimir Putin over the weekend at the g twenty high fiving was NBS while President Trump declined to meet with. Yeah. That you don't want somebody else to just slide in there. So it's yeah. It's keep your your enemies close kind of thing, you know, or your friends. I'm screaming that went out. But you know, what? I mean. But yeah, you can't you can't goof up this relationship. No matter how ugly it is. But at the same time, they're just has to be a way to sort of eased everybody because everybody is upset that they feel like we're either covering up or you know, that the president is either covering something up or lying about it. Or whatever it may be if you were just to be more forthcoming about the details of the investigation and say, I don't like it. But here's the way it is. And then move forward that might help. We'll speaking of moving forward when you were mentioning Mike Pompeo. He's also in headlines for another reason, he says the US is

"In those terms for maybe fear is not the right motivation but it goes against custom to like speculate on the president's mental fitness the assumption always tends to be that well he's always being tactical and and you know maybe this was a play to play the his base or maybe it's a miss play but the assumptions letters there's always like a calculating rational more rational saluted term complicated term but there's assumption of rationality which i think maybe ought not to be afforded at least it many moments to this president to have a prominent republican authorize the media to begin talking about things in that way should hopefully make their coverage better that we're not seeing trump do something crazy on twitter and taking it to be some brilliant thirteen dimensional just strategy that were saying maybe this guy has a timber problem may be a sky has couples rues loose some hang ups that could wind at being quite dangerous when you are the most powerful person in the world will cluckers definitely unburdened himself late leaving teeth you predicted this i didn't i did in the in the house march uncorked yet or kamikaze corker so kirca has as we sort of internally referred to it become we had a little meeting actually when corker announced that he was going to step down we all kind of huddled in needs office and kinda came up with some theories of the men one of them was that corker was carnage it's gonna take trump down with them so kamikaze corker was one scenario and man that's what he's doing so i think you first saw this really out on a limb prior to him announcing that he wasn't going to run for reelection after charlottesville when he really did seem to sort of take back up the pre election day thing of saying you know trump is sort of acting it in an unfit manner for someone who is president and now he's really skying.

"Corker claims that he is speaking for nearly everyone in his conference except for maybe a couple of people he suggests so if is that true now we need now the sort of fallout from corker is gearing from his colleagues not i don't expect and i doubt any of you listening to this podcast expect that bob corker his comments are going to be opened the floodgates in every republican senator is now turning on trump and expressing concern and wringing their hands publicly that he's not fit for the presidency i i just don't see that happening it eighty th there's not uh some new piece of information that is going to make people at that haven't done that do that apps in the kind of political freedom the corker gave himself by retiring so while you know while corker has been describing publicly in the last few days what many republicans tell us privately it is not likely in my mind that just because corker went public with it so we'll all of his colleagues and yet because he said he speaks for so many of his colleagues in the conference it seems that all of them now need to be asked if indeed they agree with bob corker is assessment do they think the white house as an adult daycare center that that needs to make sure that other folks are on the shift to sort of keep him intact in in the middle of the road and not do anything to destructive to the country i'd imagine they would table those bob corker words in not mine but the question needs to be asked because one of their senior colleagues saying i'm speaking for so many of these people will now we need to go and find out.
