"Were totally wrong right. A lot of millennials see the failure of Hillary Clinton and the election of Donald Trump as a failure of the political establishment particularly in the Democratic Party. So you have these this series of establishment failures in rap in fairly quick succession over the course of just really fifteen years and that can help explain? Why so many millennials are so attracted to somebody who is not only conviction candidate but is defined by his anti establishmentarian them and who seems to reject a lot of the things that they think have already failed them? But why should we think that this is that this new generation is somehow going to lead to a new politics? I mean first of all. I mean certainly the idealism of youth which over time you know turns into the pragmatism and perhaps wisdom of getting older is a common theme in throughout history. This happens all the time. What makes you think that? This millennial generation is somehow going to break the mold in any meaningful way. So I think this is an important distinction to make. I'm not arguing that they're going to be better. I'm not arguing. That millennials are going to come into power and it's going to be this utopia of all the you know everything's GonNa work better and everyone will treat each other nicely and America will be you know like a happy in joyful place. I'm arguing that it will be different that the that the particular that millennials will make their own their own mistakes. They'll come in with their own flawed assumptions. They'll make their own strategic errors but the those mistakes will be different in kind than the mistakes. That boomers made. Because and this is I think central to the argument of the book that people build their political assumptions based in their bill their political attitudes based on the experiences of their early adulthood. And that baby boomers are fundamentally. Different from millennials mostly because they are building their politics based off of a different set of experiences in early adulthood. So I mean I think socialism is probably the best example of this right. Baby boomers think of socialism they think of the Soviet Union. They think of Cuba they think of Gulags and bread lines and horrific war and starvation millennials think of socialism. You know millennials who by the way the oldest ones were nine when the Berlin Wall fell right. They think of socialism and they think of Sweden where there's free childcare and you know universal health care and accessible education for everybody. I'm not saying whether that's right or wrong. They could be wrong. The point is that it's different and that this generation is in charge. We will have a different set of assumptions guiding the way our leaders and our voters act. But isn't it also the case? That mean you suggest. That millennials are going to usher in a new age of progressive politics but in two thousand eighteen when. Eo was elected and she was the shiniest of that class most Democrats who were elected and I think a lot of younger Democrats actually were centrists. Were more moderate and and you know they. They flipped trump seats So what is the evidence that this generation is going to drive a more kind of progressive liberal agenda than something more moderate just responding to the electorate. So I think you're totally right to point that out and I always like to say that you know it is true that the way to think about this is that the millennial progressive socialist base is changing the conversation. But they're not putting points on the board. They are not flipping the seats in the place as the Democrats needed to win. That was done by moderates But to go back to Pete Buddha judge I actually think Pete Judges a really good example of this because the far left has always been the far left. Right what's changed at? The center has actually moved to the more liberal. Yes so pete who is as you just described moderate reviled by the left younger progressives. Don't like him. He's not considered to be a true progressive. P supports universal healthcare. Even though he doesn't go as far as burning on medicare for all he supports the idea of universal health insurance and massive government intervention to make that happen. He supports a massive government intervention to address climate change. He supports student. Debt forgiveness he wants to put millions of people to work you know building infrastructure creating jobs in communities like those are for the moderate standard bearer of the Democratic Party of the millennials to be advocating positions like that that indicates to me that the center has moved to the elbow. One could argue that. Our Algorithm candidate is simply trying to appeal to a democratic base in a primary. And that's what you gotta say. And that's not really where he's at. Chevron is not always true yes it is and I mean. That's the political process. I gotta say. I'm glad though that you make the point that you're not arguing that this is going to be a new dawn of America. That's going to transform us because one of the books I was thinking about when I was reading yours was Something well before your time. The greening of America in nineteen seventy by Charles Reich which argued that the baby boom. We're going to bring in this new higher consciousness of personal freedom and anti war sentiment and the counterculture that was going to transform America ten years after he wrote that book. Ronald Reagan was elected president than the country went on a very different path so his excitement about what the baby boomers. We're going to bring the country but the baby boomers. I don't know it may be that. The baby boomers did something similar to what Charlotte was just talking about which is the they should have changed the baseline right that That the baby boomers with their fight for civil rights antiwar okay. That gets a little more complicated but they may have moved the center a little bit to the left well and chain certain assumptions. What I wanted to ask you about Charlotte is how the Republican Party is reacting to this. This wave that that is coming because you know. The Republicans in power are also pretty old Mitch McConnell is seventy seven seventy eight years. Old Is the Republican Party. Doing anything to get ready for this. Are there any signs that they understand that this generational change is you know is going to have a huge impact on their ability to retain power in Washington so they were and then trump got elected so basically over the course of Obama's presidency? The Republican Party actually was doing a couple really smart things to try to attract young people and in fact you know the two thousand famous two thousand thirteen. Rnc autopsy after Romney Law Forgotten. Yeah you know that I S- are you in this book that that was actually basically right. It's just that the timing was off so that autopsy argued that in order to survive. The Republican Party had to do better with women people of Color and young people and during Obama's second term. They actually made some real progress. On that day elected some young women they elected they got a couple young Hispanic Republicans in office like At least a phonic Carlos Carabello who are in this book those young Republicans over the course of Obama's second term you know we're carving out this conservative path on climate change a conservative path on immigration They were sort of you know helping to draw the Republican Party into the future on marriage. Equality trying to say like. Hey let's come down about this you know. And then trump happened and suddenly it became much much much more difficult for those young moderate Republicans. Who were trying to drag their party into the future. Well it's interesting. You know anybody who knows who at least phonic is these days rose who she is because she was such an ardent defender of Donald Trump in his point that you you spent a lot of time with her death portrait of her but I think most of it was written before this trump defender so explain. Yeah how and why so she so at least a phonic is one of the most calculating ambitious people I've ever spoken to. She and I should clarify that. Listen I had to finish this book in October. It went to the printer in November. She didn't really get her star. Turn in the impeachment hearings until January. Right I could tell already that. She was inching towards trumpism and that she had kind of depart that this path that she was she was kind of in this position of doing this little dance and sort of creeping down this path of. I like something president does I don't like other things. And she spent most of the last four years trying to trying to sort of distance herself from trump. And I could tell at the end of this writing process that she was that period had ended and that she was about to embrace him. But I just didn't know exactly how that would happen so I couldn't write it because it hadn't happened yet. I mean the thing about at least a phonic is that she is a Republican from upstate. New York right which means that. She has no path in statewide office. She's never going to get elected to the Senate and she's never going to get elected to the governor's mansion because this is New York state right so her and she is deeply loyal to the Republican Party. She's George W Bush person. She's a Mitt Romney Person. She cares a lot about the future of the GOP. And that's why she's been somebody who's been really active in trying to get more women into the party trying to get more young people into the party. I think she made and again. This is just. She didn't tell me this. This is just what I think. Based on knowing her talking to her I think she made a calculation. She realized that her only path forward is up through the house. She has to keep her house seat. She wants to. She seems pretty. Well positioned to be in leadership and the only way to do that is in this era of the Republican Party is to support trump. I also think she has. She's trying to have her cake and eat it too. Because in ten years or fifteen years when she runs for something else you know she'll be able to say to the trump people. Hey I was with your guy and you'll also be able to say to the moderate Republicans. Hey here's my record on climate change. And here's my record on immigration. So I think that she's like this is a woman who's yearbook photo. This didn't make it into the book. Her background of her yearbook page was the White House. Okay so I think that that tells you a little bit about her aspiration a little naked question now. She was a contemporary with Buddha. Judge Harvard. And tell us about their relationship such as it was so they were both at Harvard at the same time. They both did the I. O P Institute of Policy Institute the Institute of Politics which is like this sort of politics nerd like thing at Harvard. Basically multiple people who knew them on campus. Say that they went on a date. That was the scuttle butt on campus. Both of them strenuously denied us but in ways that seem like a bit protesting too much. I think what it was was one of those like maybe dates where they got A. They weren't like interrelationship. They weren't in love clearly. Pete's gay like But Pete was dating women at that time and you know it seems to me like the most logical explanation for this is that they went on this coffee date that was like a maybe date and they both kind of realized podcast. That trolls using air quotes quotes. Pseudo date okay last question for you. Charlotte are there new millennial candidates Who you're looking at in this Upcoming election who you think Are going to be exciting to people. The way that was. I mean I did notice that some of the some of these primary races. The progressive candidate who've taken on more moderate Democrats have lost Cisneros Yeah for example. What are you seeing in the kind of next class coming In terms of this this wave that you write about so I have to be declared by like I have been really focused on twenty twenty so And I've been covering that for time so I haven't been as much like searching these people out as I once was. I definitely think Charles Booker in Kentucky is really exciting. There are some exciting young people who are running for mayor in New York City. And I think that you know one of the challenges of having this presidential election right now. Is that frankly one of the reasons I wrote. This book is to give oxygen and give some profile to people who don't get covered because they're not going to be president right and the way. Our political media is is operated right. Now it's like so focused on the presidency And maybe I've fallen into that a little bit since I finished this book because I've been really focused on the presidency but I will do some research and I will get back more nails. I've got one more for Charlotte because it's a passage in my favorite chapter in the book. The chapters called Harry Potter and the spawn of boomer and in the courses that you cite a book by somebody named Gene Twinge who wrote that..

"So getting back to the point of what we're talking about the stock market drop in today and again jumped on and check some of my investments in. Yeah thanks were down with Steve. You and I were talking about it and I. I don't like the Saudis. I don't like them. I don't like the Russians. I hate the fact that we kiss their asses Saudis. Yep that's another story for another day another thing to deal with. I'm sure most of you agree with me. But the international standard of four crude Lost Lend forty four went down to thirty three eighty three a barrel and then the US crude went down to thirty dollars a barrel. Pretty big deal. And here's the thing when oil goes down go-goes up so I'm trying to get on that gold and silver. That's another thing that I do. Well that and I see a lot of people's posted on social media last night and even this morning they're talking about all of these gases are great. They're great but you also put you know you start putting your friends out of work real quick and I always say that low gas prices aren't always a good sign of things for the overall economy non. 'cause you're right it does put a lot of people at work it just a sign of prosperity in an economy is a little bit higher gas prices. Now we don't want these folks at their gouging. The only the gas stations out there gouging. And sometimes they do that. Thank God for our commissioner said Miller Agriculture Commissioner in Texas. He's his signature on all the gas pumps. He's a good friend. He's been on the show before years ago But he he keeps an idea. You know keeps that stuff strike but they're plunging because of the fears this covert thing right this cove in nineteen this. Wuhan which by the way. Msnbc one of their writers puppet master came out yesterday on twitter and said that to call it. The Wuhan Virus is racist but I suggest everything is racist. Remember remember remember. Remember racist isn't Wuhan a city China Senate not a race. I they called it a Chinese virus or the you know the the yellow virus or something else yellow fever. Yeah I was GONNA say yellow fever where Spanish fever they've had the black plague law basis The you know the people of Boob on they got offended when the bluebonnets plague. Yeah I mean there's the the Ebola which is named for the place in Africa. It came from you got the Zico which is named for Zeke. A river so it's all that racist I don't know but by the way that's just dumb. That is just dumb. Everything's Gatsby racist. By the way the Chinese their media is calling it the Wuhan virus so teach their own. If you feel guilty by using the phrase Wuhan but you know what's happening is and I'm GonNa talk now. Let's talk about this tomorrow night but there is an element of racism to this virus. And I'm going to get into that tomorrow night. I've never one who calls racism but I am tomorrow night. There's there's an element going on here and again. I'm GonNa tag it directly on the left and the mainstream media. Because that's what they do. They blame those of us on the right that are conservatives being racist but they go out and do these racists things and they project the stuff so tomorrow night on on a day. We're going to do that. Sounds Fun. I can't wait to see how you make this racist watching all right. You'll see tomorrow night. Tuesday night go get it but anyway. So that's that is a good time to invest folks. I think I was looking at stuff like what I want to buy right now. Because there's some there's some lows tall toilet paper stock. You don't want to go by. That's US probably out of the count the room if you were to people at that make the germ ix anti lotion. They argest bathing and cash. There probably dumping some stuff. That's not even on the market or hey we got those extra vats get it out the one that smells funky though by in Texas on. Tito's vodka has come out with an advisory saying do not use their vodka hands-on way made the whole. We made the whole joke among other podcast about using the I picked up the bottle of Tito's and I said Hey we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA have to go to drink in hand sanitizer throat port down your throat but you know I was at CPAC two weeks ago. I was there weeks ago and we all the other day. I was on a flight back from Canada. Got An email from CPAC saying that someone from New Jersey who was at CPAC was was diagnosed with krona virus. They were from New Jersey. We don't know who it is. They were a donor and so they were a big donor. Okay I mean I don't know I you know warning to every everything around revolves around Ted Cruz in him. You know came in contact with a donor. Yeah that was at CPAC is when I was reading here. I don't know all right. I don't know we'll see but ted did apparently shake hands with this person. And so Ted has self quarantine which I think the incubation period of this bug is about five days at the Mexican goes much I think. Fourteen or fifteen but twelve days. Sounds like a vacation is hanging out of the habit corona virus diet plan. Yeah I mean I just sounds to me like like uncle Ted it wrong. One sounds like Ted might be doing that but anyway so I appreciate that. But you know you can't you can't come in contact with somebody with corona virus and then not warranty on yourself because of the P. R. Aspect of that because the media has gone nuts. Well how do we know if they don't let us know who it is? How do they know that we didn't come in contact with this person? Well it's interesting and Canada. She'll shake so our very own blaze. Tv's Elisha Schaefer Schaffer. I was on the phone with him the other day and of course alleges out in La he was at CPAC and he has slightly offensive podcast and has the Youtube Channel of course which is sponsored by blaze. And he's. He's one of our colleagues. He told his pastor. Markey told US pastor that he had been at CPAC so they said don't come to church. We're not having church Sunday morning. And then the CDC and the California Health bore whatever told him to self quarantine for fourteen days. Bro. You don't even know if you came in contact with this person you don't even know and I'm like okay. Okay Insanity. Panic creates more insanity. We'RE GONNA GET WE'RE GONNA get into it tomorrow night. I got some things I want to say about this whole deal. I mean I have survived way. Worse things than a media hyped flu and and who knows. Maybe it's going to kill us all but it certainly not reach. Pandemic levels yet survived a lot of things a lot of things. But you know you don't have to worry folks. It has not come in contact with President trump or vice president pence. That is good news people. That is good. Oh Man Oh man oh man. People get scared about everything man. Yeah so we'll see what happens. I mean I. I'm a little woozy today. Kansas you know it might be because I've been out there licking doorknobs and stuff. I've asked you repeatedly to stop doing that. And just anything with lead products Let's come back for just a second before. We do another headline. Let's go back to this abortion. Rally this abortion celebration. This is the one where. Oh Oh chucky Schumer basically issued a threat to Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch and justice. A cavenaugh saying you have wreaked were you have you know whatever the whirlwinds you're GonNa pay and all this then. He walked back later on because he was getting out loud backlash and just just getting blasted by both sides. Because that's not a good thing I mean. How do you threaten the Supreme Court justice? I don't understand why these guys get up there and make threats like that or say why because he was listening to the Wu. Girls you get up there. Here's man Shuki. He gets up there and he makes these big old girls go ahead and get a little chip in their pants. And they're like.
Sen. Ted Cruz says he's self-quarantining after brief interaction with CPAC attendee who tested positive for coronavirus

Bernie Sanders's definition of democratic socialism, explained
"The annual conservative political action conference or CPAC just wrapped up last week and the theme this year was America versus socialism a preview of what's to come from Republicans ahead of the November election especially if Bernie Sanders is the democratic nominee Sanders calls himself a democratic socialist here he is explaining what he means by that over eighty years ago Franklin Delano Roosevelt helped create a government that made transformative progress in protecting the needs of working families today in the second decade of the twenty first century we must take off the unfinished business of the new deal and carry it to completion
Sowalong: Growing Ferns from Spores
"I'll be covering the so along in various ways in the coming weeks but this first episode is answering demand that many of you have heard which is for information on propagating funds and this isn't so much of so long as a spore along because as we'll be finding out from an expert. Peter Blake growing new baby. Funds isn't quite the same as sowing seeds of other plants. If you're wondering why on earth you'd ever bother with growing houseplants from C. Because hey it's easy enough to walk into your nearest Garden Centre or Plant. Btk and pick up full-size plants Let me just explain I? It's cheap and if you're the kind of person who doesn't have a lot of extra income to splash out on buying plots then you can pick up a range of house. Plants CPAC is for a few pounds or dollars or whatever your local currency may be and you can get from that packet a large number of plants which then you could sell give to friends and family or just keep to turn your home into a tangle jungle so it's a cheap way of getting lots of lovely plants it also really gives you fantastic insight into how those plots grow plus rather than buying a plant in a nursery. That's been called within an inch of its life in the APP sleet computer controlled perfect environment. You'll be bringing up a plant in your own home which will be adapted to your conditions. That said there are some drawbacks. It does take up a fair bit of room. You may need a few bits of equipment and you'll need a specially formulated potting. Mix Feed your seeds to go into. We'll be looking at there's aspects of the so long in upcoming episodes but as I say to get in touch. Tell me how your plants growing on the you've sewn in previous oh lungs and what else. You'd like to know because there's still plenty of time to contribute. I spoke to Peter Blake who has many of experience with Ferns to find out how it's done. Here's Peter to introduce himself pharmafirm enthusiast. Who's been growing fans for about fifteen years now? Both hardy ferns in the And tender tropical ferns in glasshouses. I've been in the British territory Logical Society. Which is the basically the fern society for the UK For that length of time and I've had a great deal of help and support through then And also have had a lot of sports from them because they operate a spaw exchange system at the beginning of each year. I guess this is kind of Botany Wanna one. But why are we propagating funds from spores and not from seeds? Can you just explain? Explain that to us. Because not everyone's going to know the the reproductive processes of the Fund particularly well pearn saw unusual and they'll basically quite primitive plants along with a number of other spore producing plants like mosses but they all vascular plants so they're a bit more advanced to the mosses but what they do is they produce a spool which is very small and light and can travel a long way. The Fun self that we're used to seeing in the Gulf and or an apart- he's actually a plan that has no gender. It's not the male no female and dispositive producers Equally male and female. But those little spores if they learned in the right place will cause a second plant to grow which scientifically is called a domestic fights or a pro selous and that little plant which most of people have not ever recognized because they're so small actually is a sexual plant and it has both male and female sex organs. The male sex organs are called the answer India and the female sex organs are cold. They ought to go near an effect effectively. The anterior produced little swimming things like sperm and they travel through a film of Water Which is why the profile. I need I'm to grow And they traveled through that film of water to the goon. Yeah where they will search allies an egg in in that place and Once the eggs fertilized begin to divide and we'll grow into a new phone which will look like once used to seeing so the sexual pulse of life cycle is by faith. Life Cycle is the domestic flights and the SX. You'll part the part that produces the spoils is cool. So let me. It sounds complicated. It's a system that's worked very well for Ferns for the last three hundred and fifty million years so it it certainly ineffective system indeed and it's something that is new to many of us who've perhaps grown plants from seed. The procedure is a little bit different. How do we know? First of all that a firm is ready to be harvested for spores. Firm can carry spools in a number of ways. It's always on a front. Which is what we call leaf. Basically we call them friends Unusually for particularly for the funds that we see as natives in the UK Those fronts look very much all the same whether they carry spores or not And so if you turn the front over on just playing green on the back they probably don't go to any sports if you turn the from Dover and look at the back of an east coverage and little brown spots then those what's cool soreye and those are the little collections that actually contain the spores. Some funds will get a completely separate type of front looks different from the rest of the of the plant to carry those balls in Sarai these little collections and ones that do things like Royal Sun which you sometimes see growing next to water middle. Have a big plume in the middle Covered in Soreye. And you can sit because as a golden brown coal aware of the rest of the plant is green. But generally for most funds that we come across commonly the Sore I carrying this buzzer on the back of the front. If they're very young Soraya not ripe yet they will appear white or Pale Green when they're just coming to the right sorts of ripeness to collect them they turn the sorts of time. Color generally wind up going over and released that Spos- they've gone. They don't Brown. What actually happens in that Source is the source contain lots of little containers which could spur NGO which actually contain the spores and those Speranza when they're ripe. If the winds dries little bits will burst open. And actually fire the spoils out so if you take a Franz where you're beginning to see the Tan colored Soraya on the back and you put on a piece of white paper in a warm dry place like the iron covered or in the dining room table or something like that whether or not drafts. If you need to overnight in the morning if you lift front off you will find that there was a person of Sarai on the paper where the sprint. You have phya down the schools. And they've actually hit the paper and stuck to it so you can get the very nice sorts of shadow picture of the front just may down to the poor scientists released.
"cpac" Discussed on Verdict with Ted Cruz
"So much coming on for having me. Well Low thank. You also honored to be on the number one. Podcast stop and go on. Go on cast. I mean who knew well? We're pleased to have you here and actually before we even get into the RNC stuff which is now what you're running on the national level. I WanNa get specific about a past job that you had. You ran the Michigan. Republican Party Michigan. A very very important state in two thousand sixteen and twenty twenty. Yeah Michigan absolutely and Senator Cruz. You're right on president. Trump spoke to the working men and women in Michigan and transformed our state and brought new voters into our coalition and one specific county. That flipped Michigan was McCone county which has gone Democrat for decades and President. Trump came over and over again. Everybody said don't come to Michigan. Michigan's a non winnable state. It's a flyover state. Republicans haven't won there for thirty years. I kept saying to candidate trump. Please come to Michigan. Please come over and over again why I was looking at the numbers. We had the data. We were knocking doors. We were talking to voters and we saw these forgotten. Men and women really felt like Washington had left them behind. It had become this redistributionist coastal elite party of the Left. That forgot the middle of the country. And you're seeing that even more. The Democrats want to get rid of the Electoral College. Guess what that means. They won't come to Michigan ever again. That's right and so the president resonated. What's interesting about Michigan on election night? That's often overlooked is Michigan was called for Hillary Clinton by the Detroit. Free Press on election. There was wishful thinking because they had so undervalued the voters mccollum and the shift and president trump outperformed Mitt Romney sixteen percent in that county. We want it. And that's why we have Michigan and part of the reason. President trump is our president. So Rana let's talk as a practical matter if you're a steelworker worker in Ohio. If you're an auto worker in Michigan if you are one of the men and women who form the backbone of the middle class for a century America what does a radical democratic agenda a green new deal of Bernie Sanders? What does that mean for you? Well let's just kill the car industry altogether. Let's get rid of Paul. Let's kill your jobs. Let's take away your healthcare that you negotiated. That's what the Democrat Party means to you and by the way all that hard work you're doing and all those taxes you're paying you're going to pay for a bunch of kids to get medieval history college degrees and being college for six or seven years instead of what he had in your health centers might like that but it is frightening for them and the other thing that the president's done that's resonated so much is the trade deals he came to Michigan and said Nafta didn't work for you. We need to renegotiate and he took on China your leader and people. Now now we have a president who fights for that. You're saying this is a policy shift to it's not just using nicer words to flatter new voters it's an actual shift in priorities and a shift in policy absolutely and now results like you said the people who've come up food stamps. That's food stamps. That's so personal. We talk about numbers a lot as a party. Think about what that means for family. The dignity of a family to find a working wage to be able to afford Things like groceries college tuition gas to be able to set a new course for your family and that Pat. That's what America's about and that's what the Republican Party stands for and that's why we're doing so well with this president. Let me give you an amazing stat last week. I was down in Laredo. Texas was del Rio also meeting with the leadership of Laredo. This is down South Texas right right on right on the Rio Grande Valley Right just north of there and the mayor told me in the last few years. The median income and Laredo. Texas has gone from thirty nine thousand dollars a year to forty six thousand. It's a pretty big raise. Now you WANNA talk about making a real difference which by the way that the power brokers of the Democratic Party thinks. That doesn't matter. Let me tell you six thousand dollars. A year in a single MOMS pockets and a working families puck pockets looked at. That's a carnot. That might be to car notes. That's braces for your daughter. That's maybe summer camp for your son. That is the money to to take a family vacation. Maybe taking a family vacation in five years and that extra money gives you the ability to go. Go to Disneyworld with your kids. That is what this fight is all about. And you look at where the two parties are going. We have ron mentioned trade. Both parties were afraid to take on China and I will say president trump has shown in current taking on China and his opening up markets. I sat down this week with Texas cotton farmers who are so excited about opening up the Chinese market and being able to sell more cotton there. That is good for American farmers. Ranchers workers manufacturers across the country. Here's an amazing step. The last three years twelve thousand new factories in the United States of America Obama said it would take a magic wand to bring manufacturing jobs back to America in the last three years we have brought five hundred thousand manufacturing jobs back to the United States. Senator this is all too optimistic you conservatives. We need to be skeptical so I want to know a big aspect of this show and something. We love so much. That's why we love coming. Here is speaking to the audience and hearing their questions so in a few moments before we go. I want to know how the Democrats are GonNa take all that away from us. There is a question from Barron came in on twitter questions and trump. I might be actually the thing to watch your podcast. The question is is the popular vote. Compact states are going to go with the popular vote and give away their electoral votes. Is the popular vote. Compact a violation of Article One section ten center so probably but it is an open question constitutionally so this is a question that is going to be litigated. You're seeing states. Virginia was the latest one that voted to give their electoral votes. To whoever wins the national popular vote which means if you're a citizen of the Commonwealth of Virginia? Your vote doesn't matter anymore right. You're going to vote for whoever California New York vote for I mean. It's a bizarre. It's difficult to understand why that makes sense. Virginia's there is one reason if you do that. You could ensure that people won't campaign in your state and keeping politicians from descending on your state. There is a public good to that. So I guess to empathize with them chairwoman. Do you have thoughts on this? I absolutely do I think. It is devastating for our country to get rid of the electoral vote. This is what the founders intended for every state to have representation and just stay tuned because the RNC is not going to let this go and there's something coming. Yeah there's a preview of things to come let me just say I have an an intention to be the most litigious charon history. I think this is I think. What Democrats have done systematically to take away our rights to to rig the election system and this to take away our votes our electoral college votes and have California and New York to dictate who the next president. United States is going to be something. We have to fight for the Republican Party. Why the Democrats are doing this. The Democrats are trying to do this because they're scared of blue collar voters absolutely. They're scared of Michigan. They're scared of Wisconsin. They're scared of Pennsylvania. They're scared of Ohio. They're scared of Iowa. They don't think they can get those blue collar. Voters back look. They're campaigning on eliminating these guys job. So their approach instead is let's just hope California carriers this over. That's that's not the way our constitutional democracy were. That's right and I hope you are the most litigious chair. Gop history because the courts are looking pretty good right now. So under ninety two new judges time to thank you Chad and thank you Mr President for paving the way Michael the RNC is one of the few plaintiffs that would clearly have standing to challenge this ridiculous national popular vote so that we may have made some news here today. That's that's right because you have to have standing to bring this and the RNC clearly would be disadvantaged here before we go. We just have a minute or so left. This question. That came in really tickled me and since you are a party chair. I thought you'd be very good to answer it from Tonka Teddy Bear. That's twitter great name. Is it possible that the DNC is not going to Bernie and our writing off this election for two reasons? They're under too much scrutiny. Rig the primary but don't have a viable candidate and to they'll blame the loss on Bernie and distance themselves from the Socialists. I can I just say how much I love Tom. Perez and what a great job he's doing as DNC chair. I hope he stays there more morning. I'm running the campaign for him to stay there forever. I mean they're bankrupt. I'm not GonNa Brag but we did raise twenty seven million in January while we broke a record to elect this president and the Democrats have a system. You know it's funny that they're against the electoral college but they're creating the same system in their nominating process. These super delegates. Get to comment and take away the popular vote. And that's what they're trying to set up for Bernie. I don't know how they can do it without creating a civil war in their party. Boy Isn't it fun to watch? Ron I gotta ask so you. State party chair. In Michigan the Iowa Democratic Party. Yes yeah what a crap show a simple question? How hard is it to count the Dan votes seriously? Honestly I almost called a lifeline and said. Can we come help you? And by the way literally standing in a gymnasium but this is it's not a complicated APP. It's called an advocate. One to senator the reason the reason they don't want to count the votes off mini-van history when we go back to the reason they don't want to count the votes is because they don't like the answer that they're going to get through in November. We've got to go here at CPAC. Chairwoman Thank You. So much for being here senator as always for being here. I'm Michael Knowles this verdict Ted booth..
"cpac" Discussed on Verdict with Ted Cruz
"Welcome to verdict with Ted Cruz. I'm Michael Knowles. We are live at CPAC senator. I feel like we're pretty much roommates. At this point there's a lot of truth to that This is number one. This is CPAC. This is the largest conservative gathering in the world. Yes you have conservatives you have libertarians. You have bloggers. You have cowboys. You have young people you have. Lovers of liberty gathered all descending on Washington and terrifying the Washington bureaucracy. And you know this is. This is a pretty good time to be here at CPAC. We have got record low on employment record win. I think we've got one hundred eighty seven judges on the courts. Now well actually not one hundred eighty seven. We've now confirmed one hundred ninety two hundred ninety two. I stand corrected. This is pretty twitter right after the impeachment trial which I will note. The Senate rightly acquitted. The president of these ridiculous articles of impeachment right after the Senate acquittal. I saw someone on twitter that said as revenge. The Senate should immediately confirm a judge. I responded and said Nope. We're GONNA confirm five. You're doing five and that's what we did so things are looking really really good. What I WANNA know is how did this happen? Well let's take this and break it into different pieces. Okay first of all verdict. What is this well as a lot of y'all know a month ago we launched this pot? Podcast verdict with Ted. Cruz launched on the first day of the impeachment trial. The very first night each night I went jumped in a truck headed down to the studio and we would record at midnight one two in the morning whenever it happened. We'd record that night. It went from Zero non-existent to skyrocketing and becoming the number one ranked podcast in the world. We've had now the date over four and a half million downloads. And the way we're doing it. We're responding to breaking news so Michael talked about us being roommates. The reason for that. This is the third verdict podcast that we ever recorded in the last twenty four hours. This is I was not supposed to see the senator until today I was flying into Washington. Nice leisurely night. He calls he says no Michael. I'm really pissed off about something right now. We're going to record a podcast tonight. Get to the studio and I'll tell you then what tomorrow's podcast is going to be. How many of Y'all are familiar with Bernie Sanders Kissing up to Fidel Castro and the Communist in Cuba. Well I gotta say that really pissed me off and I take it pretty personally so what we did. I called my aunt my Sonia who was imprisoned and tortured in Cuba by Fidel Castro's goons and my Sonia got on a plane and flew to DC and we sat down and had her tell us about what Cuban communism is all about. When it's really like and I have to Brag for a moment about the senator because not only did it become the number one podcast or in the world. He also became the number one booking producer. We've got another guest coming up. We shot another show because you happened to have lunch with a guy who was in the United States and other Rodham. Through next week it will be a big big show on a totally different topic. Yes but let's get to the topic of this show right now. How this all happened. The most fundamental political shift that has happened in the last decade. Is that the two parties have switched places. Everything you've been told about. Politics is wrong and all of us grew up being told. Republicans are the Party of the rich and Democrats are the Party of the working class in the last decade those to switch today. The Democrats are the Party of the rich today. The Democrats are the party of Hollywood celebrities and Silicon Valley Billionaires and Wall Street. Titans they sip their law as and they look down on working class. Americans and on the other hand working men and women the working men and women here union members blue-collar Union members used to form the heart of the Democratic FDR Democrats who became Reagan Democrats. And Right now today. They're trump democratic. Senator I missed the Reagan era was not alive for that and so for my whole life the GOP which I always loved the GOP was kind of a really bad guy. It was called the Soviet Union. We beat them freed. The world liberty prevents spoiled the ending. Now I can't even read the history book and by the way we tore down this wall. You know for my whole life. The DEM's have been the party of the working man. I WanNa know nuts and bolts. How did we end up where we are today? So under the Obama Presidency. The Democrats made a decision. That has generational consequences. They chose between what had been historically favored children to the Democratic Party. They chose between California environmentalists billion years and Blue Collar Union members and their jobs and Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders. Hilary Clinton. They all decided to heck with the workers. Write them off. We don't care about the jobs. We're the party of rich coastal elites that has prompted an historic realignment. And I gotTa tell you right now. We're seeing blue collar workers. If you care about jobs if you have calluses on your head. We're now the party. The Republican Party of truck drivers and steel workers oil workers and farmers and ranchers and cops and firefighters waiters and waitresses and everyone gets out and works for a living. That's the Republican Party and the Democratic Party. Says you silly little people you deplorables? You don't need jobs you know. It's not just happening in the United States either. We're seeing this happened. Throughout the West we saw with brexit receiving it happened throughout Europe. There seems to be a rising up of people who say maybe I wasn't a conservative before but now that there's a left left wing party that's taking away. My national borders taking away my right to make my own laws taking away my jobs. You're seeing this major coalition realignment. How many of. Y'All watch the State of the Union address. By far the best speech president trump has ever given. He went through the incredible victories. Were having but let me highlight one in particular that I think because we saw contrast is he talked about record. Low unemployment the lowest unemployment for African Americans in history the lowest unemployment for Hispanics in history. The Democrats sat with their arms crossed angry refusing to applaud. But that wasn't the worst of it. There was a moment where he talked about in the last three years seven million Americans have come off of food stamps and not only the Democrats not applaud. A number of congressional Democrats hissed. That sums up where we are. Listened the message of the Democrats. If you're a single mom if you're dependent on the government for for welfare dependent on the government for food their messages stay dependent. They don't want you getting out of that trap of dependency and I'll tell you look. I'm from Houston right now today in my hometown of Houston. There is a single mom who three years ago needed the federal government to help feed her family the last three years. She's got the job tonight. She's going to come home. She's GonNa stick the keys in the door of her apartment going to open the door carrying a bag of groceries. She's going to set those groceries on the kitchen table and our kids are GonNa look at her with a newfound respect. She has the dignity of work the self respect of knowing. She's providing for her family and her kids who have a level of hope excitement. Seven million lives transformed. You know that connects. I think I think that that sort of message connects a lot better with the American people than fifty seven genders. And we need to steal. Everybody's property I don't think that's as persuasive a message. It Republican it is. The divide is so stark. If you're a working man if you're a working woman. The Democratic Party right now is not fighting for jobs. And here's the key going forward. The Republican Party is and if we want to win going forward. We need to be the blue-collar gop if we are the party of jobs we are the Party of the future. Well I know who can help make the party the way that we want to see it and that would be the chairwoman of the Republican Party. So let's bring her out. Give us a little vision. Answer some questions Chairwoman Rana mcdaniel..
Even MORE Fire Emblem in Smash?
"We got some fire emblem news. We've got two bits of fireable news but let's start off with a smaller bit of news in which we learn more about the expansion. Pathway for the deal is coming February twelfth and it includes centered shadow side story includes a new house called the Ashen. Wolves excited yeah. It's like I had an opportunity community to jump back into a fire. Emblem as of yet and every time that there's a new DLC drop. I'm like yeah this is it for me like I'm really going to do at this time. this one. I'm like what's up with this subterranean house. Yeah Larry Down there and like we even poked around down there in the main game where we were like going through the catacombs and stuff uh-huh and we just didn't see any of these characters either way. I think it looks cool. I will say twenty five bucks too much. I think twenty five dollars is too expensive for this like especially if like it's a it's like depending on the length like if it's like a full campaign if we're looking at like another fifty plus hours I mean it has new classes quest does does yeah. There's there's a lot more to it and adding four whole new characters. That's for me. That's worth it definitely gonNA play I wish structure of the DOT CPAC for farmland was different in that they weren't just kind of like these side stories. Interwoven into the game. They were like for people who finish the game. There would be like a clear next chapter like or like blood and wine was done in which three. Yeah but I'm totally play this. I'm curious so those four characters. If you complete the side story they will then ah added to the rest of the story you can recruit them and play with them but I mean they added Anna as it's a character she didn't have any support search or anything and I was very disappointed about that which it may be not care about her at all like oh I think it's I'm interested in like chatting up new students edens and stuff. I think the the the dude that they focused not like that just want to make friends some friends prince. I think the back everybody I think that the the the main dude. They focused on like the big like Hunky Dude with the dual Claus's muscles. Yeah like that wasn't doing it for me like I you know I don't need to be I guess but yeah it looks cool off I will also play it but we'll we'll see if I don't know twenty. Five dollars is kind of a lot. Honestly as last time I was really into fire emblem and I heard about the cats and then I just immediately went and spent the money on the deal sea so they just have to have one thing that makes me really want it. Oh yeah the cats in the steam room and just like good too and I was just like yeah. This is where twenty five dollars fats. Going Asana like for sure so I don't know if that's don't take the cats into the sun. No cats like water. It's very rare it's unit it's hang out and I mean my cat does hang out in the sun on purpose to get hot understand. My cat likes hanging out in my bathroom and shower so think she like Asana seem like it two dogs though also really quickly you just want to mention that pokemon toilet wings mini series episode. One is out now on Youtube Channel. They it's a seven minute. Long animated animated short set in the Galilee region. You see some of Leon and chairman Rosen but other characters. It's really sweet and heartwarming. And we'll get a new episode of these each month each month I was very disappointed by that. Be seven episodes. It's like well we'll finish this in seven months seven minutes. It's long yes it's like six or seven. It's it's pretty sure. The other series that they did before was only three minutes so it is longer. The voice acted. It's because really nice. The animations great. I really like the different tone. It sets compared to the regular anime series. Seems a little bit more mature because it follows stories. That isn't about Ash.

In-flight Wireless Charging: Packing Power With Cordless Chargers
"USPS's coming in. It's coming quickly. And so is wireless charging which is a kind of a rare circumstance where the airline seating and enter taint industry is kind of not not going to say their head of the charge because another pun. Ci wireless has been around for a long time. But now that Apple's adopted it it's thing, and we're not ten years behind are. We we are not it's going to be really interesting business class only for the most part just as you need physical space on the shelf to put this could directly put it like behind the Panasonic had it built into the tray table, those astronomy. But it's not frac nor even behind the like netting CPAC but much harder thing to do. I'm just I don't know. I'm interested by it. But there's a really really. I don't I probably I don't have a phone that supports and I never thought about it. Too much needed sports. Yeah. And it's only business class. So I get excited by it. But for the rest of us who want to charge our phones with a USB cable like normal Lufthansa Technik has a new option. Oh boy. Do they ever do they ever? And so one of the challenges with installing in-flight power or NC power systems as you've gotta run wires under the floorboards wires are expensive heavy and you had a poll out to do it. You gotta mount things to the to do it. And so what if you could draw off existing wiring and not have to move any seats to get a power suspense? They'd probably be cheaper. Right.
"cpac" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"Turn it up. Nineteen minutes after the top of the hour. Freshman independent just the way you like it says I was explaining to Dan my last visit and and appreciation of CPAC. You know, there was a lot of a lot of people. Even then talking about the kids, you know, the younger generation that they've lost their way. But I'll tell you. I was impressed at the numbers of millennials, and this younger generation that are holding to conservative values and Danny's, you know, the fight that they fight is is incredible on college campuses today. Their their professors. Sometimes we'll downgrade them. It's the truth. Be known discourage any kind of conversation in college. They don't want to hear conservative voices. But these kids exercise a lot of courage, and I'm really encouraged to see them participate there at CPAC. Yeah. We we give an award every year through the Ronald Reagan award me give it to an unsung hero. Somebody who's toiling in the trenches. This year's award winner. Cassie billon who. Started. It's called lone conservative. She was the only conservative on the entire mount holyoke campus college Massachusetts, there were two or three other Republicans on campus, and they disliked her as much as the liberal stead because they didn't want a conservative. So Cassie started loan conservative has over a hundred thousand followers today. She she persevered through all of that. When you get to see back with and we had three satellite locations different locations around the country that we're watching screens, and we add programming going both ways. But we had a total of nineteen thousand people at CPAC this year and over half of them were under the age of twenty four. Five. Vibrant students who oftentimes are on campuses where they are the lone conservative or they are a tiny minority, and they are standing strong, and it's inspiring to see these young people. Exactly. Well, maybe I'll just tell you this other story, you know, Reagan as much before Spokane thirteen times, maybe we'll get into this book regime, but he he turned to our chairman at that time. He saw all these young people in the audience, and he made us promise that we will. We would always keep CPAC. Affordable for these young college students, we had a very low college rate price ticket price. So that we so that we can keep those college students coming they can come to back every year. It's it's the is the conservative spring break, and they come they they find they find their friends or allies. They get strength. They get to hear from the heroes. I get to participate the strategy meetings. It's really exciting to provide that atmosphere for that. Exactly. Well, and his Ronald Reagan said, you know, freedom. Liberty democracy isn't just inherited from one generation to the next or passed in the bloodstream. It's something that everybody has to be vigilant for and so this had to encourage him. I mean here he is. King. Arthur talking about the dream. Here's the dream of conservatism. And sees that there's a wave. There's this new generation that is coming right behind that is not going to allow the baton to fall, right? That's exactly why we we created this book Reagan CPAC, we've got every single one of his CPAC speeches in the book. And then there's a different commentator who writes about the speech, why didn't bleach was important then and why does speech is still important today. So those commentators include vice president of the United States and Ben Shapiro, Katie Pablito and Charlie Kirk and Michael Reagan, the true heir to the Reagan legacy, Michael Reagan and exactly cruise. It's just really great thinkers who eat. They each take a chapter wonder Reagan's speeches and explain again by was important, then why it's still important to pass up a ton of freedom on sex generation. Exactly. Well, this must for you. Because you and match laugh worked on putting this together and editing. This. To work with these speeches and probably remember, you know, the, smells and the feeling of the CPAC in that giving the ear. Oh my goodness. Each one of these speeches is so important. Reagan's first CPAC speech, we will be city upon a hill. It's disgruntled imagine needs to be and he lays out a vision. And then the next year. The entire conservative world is waiting to hear are we going to leave the Republican party the party that was more conservative than the alternative. Or are. We going to take it over. At CPAC that Reagan then told the world we're going to take it over. That's where the that's what made it another speech. I'm particularly excited about us nineteen seventy eight speech where Reagan for the first time lays out what we later became known as the Reagan doctrine, exactly t- McFarland, Katie Moore. Alan is the one who writes on this because as a young woman, she helped Caspar Weinberger, literally. Right. The Reagan doctrine. And critique it and explain what is still important today. And of course, that was America's purpose in the world. And look what happened, you know, the walls wall came tumbling down. Right. Oh my goodness. Yeah. One of my board members was John Bolton until he went into the Trump administration is nothing. Here's vice. Ios constantly telling people weakness is provocation if we are weak. That's what our enemies will attack. So we shouldn't go looking for wars to start, but we need to be strong. So that we don't have to fight the worst part of the Reagan doctrine. Yeah. Another chapter Steve Forbes comments on that Reagan spoke at this is one thousand nine hundred eighty four our noble vision and opportunity society for all. Yeah. Yeah. This is we see this whole green new deal and socialism. And and shouldn't we all be equal rights? Socialism can guarantee that everybody's gonna be equally impoverished. Yes. Let Steve Moore explains. In this. Great nineteen Eighty-four Steve Forbes C four. Steve Forbes writes about Reagan's eight that it's free markets that provide opportunity all that's that's how we live improved prosperous lives. Everybody, regardless of skin color, regardless of ethnic, heritage, regardless of where whether we were immigrants who came here for whether we were born here, we all get to participate in this free society. That's what this whole American experiment is about and I like also that you addressed freedom freedom is so key on our our show. I gotta tell you, Dan. We we keep breeding beating that that drumbeat because people sometimes lose sight, and understanding and appreciation what liberty is all about, you know, when you look back in the history of this country, the people that gave up their very lives from our founding fathers. They put it all on their lives on the line. You know, they're very treasure their honor everything they put on the line and that has. Is passed on from one generation to the next where we've had people go and fight wars and defend the cause of liberty not only for ourselves. But for others around the world. I mean, it is a rich heritage that we're we're a part of we're woven into that that tapestry that has been a blessing, and hopefully, hopefully, we can hold onto this encouragement of of Ronald Reagan in the book and the stories that you've shared with us here that this dream will continue. Yeah. It's. Reagan CPAC fees or his own words. I think maybe the thing I'm most excited about this book is the appendix where we've got his handwritten notes on craft speeches. You see him rewriting entire seco-? Yeah. Right words. Just you see what he's really thinking. He chose more carefully because he understood that freedom is at stake, and he would use that CPAC stage to promote these important ideas and to rally the troops. He knew that the forces out there to destroy freedom to destroy our independence are so large. So hostile. They are out there. Most of the United States and abroad, we have to work hard. We have to fight for our freedom. Well, Dan, thank you so much for all the work that you and Matt have put it into this book. This is going to be linked on our website Ville, Martinez, live dot com. You want you want to read this book, and you will not put it down. It is so inspiring and encouraging Reagan CPAC the words that continue to inspire a revolution. Dan schneider. Executive director of the American conservative union has been here with us, Dan. Thank you so much. She had it..
Ilhan Omar: Israel and anti-Semitism controversy, explained
"Omar. How was it? Anti Jewish anti commit. All right, number one of the two. Biggest things were the reason. Members of congress have been pro Israel is that Jews have given them money. She made no other claim about the if anybody supports Taiwan against China was it because they were paid off by Chinese if anybody's supports South Korea versus North Korea. Were they bought by Koreans when you specify Jews buying people? It is one of the oldest anti Jewish tropes ever done. Secondly that implies that were it not for Jews buying members of congress. They would not be pro Israel. So it's not only anti ju it's a statement of contempt for everyone who was excuse me. Pro Israel, the second thing that she said was after a Jews by it is that if you are if you have allegiance if you support Israel, you are really not you are really not showing allegiance to America to another country. Again, if a if a if an American of Chinese descent supports Taiwan's existence because China wants to make it a part of China and not allow it to be independent. Then does anybody say all Chinese who support Taiwan have allegiance to another country? No. And that too is a an infamous an old Jew hating idea. You don't care about France. French Jews you care only about Jews. You don't care about Germany German Jews what Hitler said even though more Jews were given awards for bravery in World War One by the. German government than other groups, you are really allegiance you have allegiance to another. So those are the two big deals about what she said. One thing that Trump said on very similar. What? And that was. What did he say a CPAC or what what for me was at? But he said that he doesn't. Jewish money. I'm still, you know. I'm having a brain freeze. But he said, basically, he doesn't. Awesome. Take their money or what he doesn't have to worry about taking the Jews because he's not worried about taking their money. I don't remember it and. There's one big difference. Whatever he said was in the context of we all have to for non money reasons. Support Israel because it is the right is it is in the right? So this is a very big difference. She believes Israel is unjustified not only in its policies, but in its existence as an independent Jewish state. And therefore the context of what she says matters. Okay. I'm sorry. No. No, no. I just let let's leave it at that. I'm very happy you called folks, Israel is the only country whose existence is held by its opponents to be illegitimate. If that's not a anti-semitic if that's not anti Jewish in the two hundred plus countries on earth, only one you isolate for illegitimacy. Then what is tied Jewish mean that there are Jews who believe that. So what? The history of Jews hurting Jews is is money marks. The grandson of to orthodox rabbis wrote one of the most anti Jewish screens of the nineteenth century of the Jews and their money. Now, he was baptized a Christian by his parents because they wanted him to be able to get ahead in Europe. Which was so antisemitic specifically in Germany.
"cpac" Discussed on Lovett or Leave It
"So CPAC is bad. And I say that if somebody was covered CPAC for many years, but I also think covering CPAC is actually kind of bad, and I say that someone who covered CPAC for years, it's lazy number one. Like, it's right across from Washington DC, so reporters go and all that to do is like fucking sit in a ballroom type. It's the easiest gig in the world say this as someone who's done it before you did it for crooked media last. You actually see what I was going to say is the real stories at CPAC or the attendees, which is what I did for crooked media. Pretty great the people who speak there, you could just turn on TV. And like watch them the people that go there. They are going there to learn dirty tricks. They're going there to learn new fascist techniques. They're going there to learn new ways to implement bigotry. I mean, I'm not kidding. This is like they say that the states are the laboratories a democracy there. Also, the laboratories of. Fascism, especially in state houses that used to be run by let's say Scott Walker where did they learn that ship? They learned it at CPAC. And I also think that it's Lisi reporters to cover CPAC because it's a bunch of fucking white people. And I say this as a white person who's covered CPAC, but I think in general, this is a fault of mainstream media. Mainstream media is really good at covering people. Who are who are like doing the racism? They are terrible at covering people who are experiencing the racism. More of that. Let's spend it again. This'll be the last one it has landed on periods versus exclamation points. We have a societal problem. Okay. And the problem is all of us have caught onto the busy. I don't even put punctuation at the end of my sentences. Give me a break. All right. So that's that's option. Guess there's really three options. So there's no punctuation option. We're like, I'm so busy. See there. No end. See you there. Forever. Then there's see you there period. Are you mad? Like was I annoy ING you did this conversation. Take too much of your precious time. And then there's see there. I'm so excited. We need something halfway between the period and the exclamation point. We need it is legitimate problem. And I don't know what it should be. But the thing that's happened. Now is don't say semi colon. Shame on you balcony. That's the first thing. I heard from you, and it was garbage. Let's end on a high note. There was a story today. A study came out from like Zurich or somewhere where they still fun science which is good because we need more of it that planting one point two trillion trees could cancel out a decade of carbon dioxide emissions. Which is cool. There are currently three trillion trees on earth. They just counted. And in fairness, it took a long time to plant them all a really long time. But all we need to do is plan. One point two trillion trees, and we could cancel out a decade's worth of climate change. That's pretty cool. And we should try. I think it is. It's a huge number of trees. But they measured out the land of all the space where there could be trees, and they're like, we can get it done. And listen, they're seven billion people on earth. All right. Let's say a billion of them each plant three trees day. Knock the shit out in a year. Anybody you're studying I use to study math. But then I ate edibles for a year. Okay. So each of you should plan three trees. And if you all do it and another billion people do it every day for a year. That's a trillion trees.

So we're going to get into the Trump insanity and CPAC right off the gate. And it's that's got a lot of fun stuff to it. Except for the fact that our president is crazy, and then a little bit later in the in the show, Emo vague Lind has gone to Bernie rally she normally goes to Trump rallies or over the last two years. She asked Bernie supporters, whether they believe in the mainstream media, it's an interesting question. We're going to find out what their answers. So that's a fascinating. Unfortunately, no Justice again for two on armed black men who've been shot two different places. And and prosecutors saying no, we will not prosecute will explain and they are particularly grievous cases. And then and then Ilhan, Omar and. Alexandra across here. Cortazar attacked any given day at least two just Democrats will be attacked by the right wing and the mainstream press crap and Democrats. Yes, right. Let's keep it real. And they'll on Omar one. I think is particularly outrageous. Wait till you see what the Democrats are going to do door. So that just broke a little while ago. And it is deeply frustrating. Okay. So we'll get to that a little bit later. Okay. The Anti-Defamation League is involved in that story, and they're in they're engaging in defamation in my opinion. But we'll get to that later. Okay in. Okay. You know, what a quick update though, before we get to all the stories, you know, just because this got me on a warpath on the piracy. You know, the story we covered for you in West Virginia with Ilhan, Omar being called a terrorist etcetera by the vendor that was brought in by the Republican party one person was sanctioned there in that isn't Caputo the democrat. Who was so mad that he kicked it or open? They've stripped him of all committee positions like in modern day, America. You are only criticized, and you only pay consequences if you do the right thing. That's right. It's amazing. Okay. All right. So with that background we go to madness. Yes. And madness ensued at CPAC. During CPAC an annual conservative convention of crazy people Donald Trump gave a two hour long speech where he rambled went off script and made fun of a number of people in his own party. Now before he started his speech. He felt the need to hug the American flag. And so let's have a little bit of fun here. It is. The famous quote that you see on a lot of bumper stickers. It's actually not Sinclair Lewis's, but it's now become a famous American saying when fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying across now there is literally wrapped in the flag and eighty one percent of white evangelicals voted for Donald Trump. Yeah. And he's at the American, you know, at this conservative conference that's put together by the American conservative union. So so wrapped in the flag carrier cross there. He is. So and by the way, it look I say this this conference is, you know, just a group of crazy people getting together. I don't think it always used to be that way. I might disagree with the political views of conservatives. But back in the day, there was at least some substantive conversation taking place, whereas every year, it's it's devolving more and more especially in the Trump era where you know. I mean, you have Michelle mom. Alkan, you know, talking about the the ghost of John McCain and in a very negative way. It's just it really bad bad people saying horrible things nothing's ever enough. And so. Look if they were in a party that was sentenced to begin with that might be one thing. But they're already in a radical party that is far. Right. And I don't mean that just based on my opinion..

If not thousands of his Trump, agitating, political allies, donors and or supporters, so it was fine. Because one of things that happen to me towards I think the middle or the end of the afternoon at CPAC on that day. When Trump spoke this past Saturday was he he went over. He was originally slated for like fifty minutes. He ended up talking for upwards of two hours and also hitting the stage about forty five minutes late perfect. So if you looked at the schedule those. Good amount to be done for the rest of that Saturday, which was the final facial day of CPAC for this year, including represent Representative Matt gaetz who was supposed to speak later that after Newt, Hugh, of course, is Trump loving congressman representing a district Florida and has not been shy about throwing himself on any number of Trump related crinoids, including basically threatening Michael Cohen going after his personal life the day before Cohen last week was set to testify on Capitol Hill now as I was heading back into the hotel and convention center. I think an hour or two or something like that after Trump's rambling long winded speech. I haven't bumping Matt gaetz as chief staff, and I just asked him if you still speaking any simply said, Nope, I was a quote, unquote, willing volunteer to surrender forego..

A but unprofessional yoda's problem with how I how I behaved CPAC as a reporter. I am a reporter. I am John from pod. Save america. One of those guys contact my boss. So the way that the CPAC speeches are it's all very tightly packed almost pretty quickly speech. Somebody comes on. There's like maybe two or three minutes with some audiovisual material in the next one starts, but of course, Trump was super late. Like, you always is. So there's like a half an hour where they just had to keep doing things they couldn't show the same three videos over the fucking ad for the God damn insurance company that they kept running. So they just ran in full a segment from CNN or match slap yells at Chris Cuomo and the audience is just yelling at the television. It was just a collective expression of what all the grandparents do at home just yelling at Chris Cuomo for having a liberal bias. We talk about match lap for a second. But talk about match. Let's talk about matchless slap. Maybe snatched lap is the head of CPAC. So he's Doug's exit or look at motherfucker. He's the guy who introduced Trump and. He just has this energy of like like a community theater director. Yeah. He's just like berating people back places. Everybody we show. It's funny because like the entire affect Haitian of every CPAC speakers like, oh, I'm what I'm what you hate the most. I'm a red meat eating straight white SIS male but match lab just gets up there. And it's like are you like a villain from dance? Mom. He's like it's step turn pivot tax cut prints. We're not saying he's gay was just like a very like. Yeah. Like a mean theater guy? He did that because he was leaving up for the meanest the meat. Yes. Donald trump. So yeah, it was so boring. Wait around there being yelled at by these fucking souls in the back. I'm really glad to be rude to them, by the way. I was very glad to be able to just do anything to make me feel differentiated them at one point during the Trump itself speech.

Like, I don't know. I didn't you know. Because apparently what happened is she was using her pass to go to the press area in the ballroom where we have seen things was dialing and was. Yelling at all the reporters for being discriminating against her or whatever the fuck. And so since the media, you know wing they have an interest in having the people there relatively happy. I guess they just said we don't want that problem. So they pulled her credentials right before it was happening right before she was going into the fucking a metal detector right before us. And they pulled her aside. It was amazing. So the punchline to are hilarious run-ins with Laura loom over the weekend was walking into Trump's speech. Daddy, Trump going through security and seeing her be denied entry as we just wall spy. We're like, hi, Laura. We're going to see your guy. Too bad. You can't come. Yeah. That sounds where you. Yeah. Sex-abuse? And then I did see have some video where she's like, why am I being denied access and CPAC letting in these leftist agitators? Show me the lie. Well, Laura, but she probably she probably meant like reporters for time. Laura, if you're if you're listening to this it's because we're polite we're nice, and you you tend to get up and scream things down your tone policing women. Well, you know, you just shouldn't be doing that. That's what they're afraid. You're gonna do. So this is it. This is the main event we get there in the media section, and there's a lot of fucking waiting around. It was very boring and like the thing is in previous days. The media section was all the way in the back of the room for Trump. They moved it up sort of the middle. So that they could fill the back just was standing room. Only Charles chumps who we later found out paid money to be there because they kept they kept berating us. They're like, sir, sir. 'cause you please sit down we can't see and it was like, well, we don't have any chairs either. I don't know what the fuck you want us to do. And there were like you're not supposed to be standing.

Trump gives fiery, off-script speech at CPAC
"Trump gave a two hour in Saint speech at CPAC the conservative political action conference which Laura Luma, by the way was kicked out of which pleases me to no end. And even some of the staunchest Trump supporters have said that this speech that he gave today is like the weirdest speech they've ever seen first. He was sweating like a horn church, we support horse, and he so he either had the meat sweats like hamburger sweats hamburger sweats, or maybe it was outer all or it could have been as Nur. He was maybe his nervous about the fact that his organization his hotel has foundation his taxes his inaugural fund, his security clearances and his campaign are all under federal investigation. Maybe but he spent a lot he was sweaty and angry, and he spent a lot of time bashing the Russia investigation, which we saw coming because he just failed spectacularly in North Korea. And the whole Cohen thing is all over the news. And so he basically said there's nothing to show for the mullahs investigation. Nothing just. Everything of mine is under investigation, but nothing to show and after two years he said they're coming up dry. He called it collusion delusion. Another Stephen Miller. Jim, I'm sure because it rhymes he called the investigation bullshit. He said there were bullshit any spoke to Milania. He said he spoke to Milania about firing Komi. And while I don't think anything will come of that. He just waved spousal privilege by saying that publicly which is hilarious. But I don't think they'll call her. And I don't think now that you know to belittle her role or her to belittle belittle her. Yeah. It's just I don't think it's something I think that was just an off the cuff remark that he lied about. And that's what's funny is is is Republicans are product he's just making that shit up and they're cool with that. So that was additionally he said he was joking when he asked Russia to find the thirty thousand emails that were missing that was a new thing that he said today, I was joking even though the Russians attempted to hack Hillary's emails within hours of him saying that. And this speech was a reminder that just because the molar investigation might be winding down these investigations that have sprung from it or just getting going into quote Matto.

Conservatives are using their national stage this week to decry so called socialism and democratic extremism. And while she wasn't there. The star of the CPAC conference might have been freshman democratic congressman Alexandria, Cossio Cortez whose policies attendees reference time and time again still with us needed Kumar and Daniel Dale. So there seems to be an obsession Anita on the right with Alexandria. Oh, Cossio Cortez. And you reference a story that one of your colleagues wrote about. About why there's this obsession with her. And why conservatives are actually quite an off her. They really are. Yeah. My colleague growth is really interesting story about how all these people on the right wished they were heard. Now, they don't want her policies. They don't like our policies, but they say she has political game. Meaning she is determined and has this political spirit and his on social media. She's actually a lot like President Trump taking on the media. And and that sort of personality, they really actually kind of admire and show, she she really did take over CPAC today and has for the last couple of days. Daniel is she going to be there white whale? I mean, you heard sub Gorka they're saying that she's trying to take away your hamburgers. And and Jerry Fogel junior saying she's going to take away my cows. Is that going to be affected? They believe that's going to be effective in two thousand twenty. I think they do I think that unmistakable signal from CPAC was. This socialism attack. You know, the red scare the red menace is going to be up primary if not the primary line of attack for them through the democratic primary if not into the general election, I spoke to democratic strategist and democratic socialist today, and they kind of shrug they said, look this is always there playbook, but it's it's come back with a vengeance. I've been at CPAC for the last few years there were probably some references to socialism. But it wasn't the dominant theme and today and yesterday it was the thing that they were talking about. So it's pretty interesting. It's up to me about how CPAC has changed over the years Daniel while in in various ways, I mean there were times where it was this form for sort of raucous debate. Among various various elements of the right in recent years, it became sort of Trump pack. I think he he joked that it would be t- pack thoroughly taken over by Trumpian conservatism, which, you know, some traditional conservatives say is not conservatism at all. And then this year it was again thoroughly taken over by Trump. But it was less about him and his accomplishments and what he plans to do going forward than about the menace posed by the democrat..

I'm joined by Aisha Deka military, scientists offer and research associate at so as I should first of all the attack itself on the Chinese consulate in Karachi, it's been claimed by the Balochistan Liberation Army. Basically who are they in what they want? The Balochistan national liberation on me is a nationalist below ch- nationalist movement, their ethnic movement a want independence from Pakistan. But what is very cute cute is that. Earlier on in the past Balochistan Liberation Army or any army associate with the below schmooze Flint has never had the capacity to strike inside of an centers and astrategically aside, as for example, the Chinese consulate says very very strange, and it's a cross border attack as well. It's not within Balochistan. Yes. It's not within Balochistan earlier. What we've seen is that be LA or other armies of the movement would strike say petty workers, laborers working for the army all blow up a pipeline going through Balochistan having their years ago. This is like four five years ago. There was a blast in Islamabad, which was the extra beauty to be LA. But you know, everybody knew wasn't the LA. Be LA didn't have the capacity. I still don't think it has the capacity, but what is being claimed is on behalf of LA. This was on its own merits at least clearly an extremely ambitious attack. I mean, this is a a high profile and presumably will secured target, which they clearly intended to do serious damage if this was the Balochistan the beret army, and as you correctly point out, there's some doubts as to whether they're claiming to whether it's being claimed on their behalf by other actors, but why would the Chinese consulate of Bena target fastly because there is the China puck sonic comic corridor, which passes through Balochistan. There is development work and guava, which is a portent of very strategic port very strategic location in Balochistan. It's a deep sea fishing pole, which would give China the ability to kind of a be part of the Rabian, see. Says very strategic and what the Balaj ethnic Ballade say is that well, a strategic mood shift has been made a strategic decision has been made regarding the province without taking them into account. And they do not want to be part of Pakistan. I still don't think I mean, I'm doubtful that there are several claims. There's a Pakistani claim that the Balaj themselves are being funded by by Indians in intelligence agency in of gone intelligence agency, they could be others as well. And what the Chinese have been saying so long is allow us allow the Chinese to come bring their own force into Parkistan the security forces to defend and secure anything. Why there is Chinese investment or Chinese presence? So it could be anyone really. But it doesn't look like. The work of be LA because be LA has limited capacity is much not just in Balochistan, but in Pakistan as whole is the much resentment or suspicion of China's increasing influence in Buxton. In Balochistan, the issues being raised bought generally the state, and the people are generally, you know, excited about money coming in. I mean through the China Pakistan economic corridor. China plans to invest sixty one billion dollars into Pakistan and has so far invested about twenty six billion dollars. They were stopped after the last government lost in elections. And there is a new government in the new government destroying to reach out to the Giannis. But there are other problems, for example, IMF has raised issues with how CPAC known as coming into into parka sawn, and they're saying that box on will get into debt trap China.
