A Nation in Crisis Is Not a Nation Prepared for War
"Start with cut 67 Biden on Russia invading Ukraine saying it depends on what it does. It's one thing if it's a minor incursion cut 67. So I think what you're going to see is that Russia will be held accountable. If it invades and it depends on what it does, it's one thing if it's a minor incursion, and then we end up having to fight about what to do and not do, et cetera. So that's all of a sudden where the neoconservatives and the media began to lose their mind. Now, Biden plays the role of a neocon. He doesn't even do that well. He doesn't even do the war mongering thing well. He contradicts the own regime's narrative that they want to go to war with Russia. Now, I have my own personal opinion of kind of Joe Biden's. Let's say 45 years in D.C. that I think he deep down knows that a ground war with Russia is actually really bad for his presidency right now, and I think deep down he's wrestling with that. I think deep down Joe Biden and Jill Biden are trying to push back against the Jake Sullivan Jen Psaki, the Tony blinken and the Lloyd Austin kind of beat the drums of war that we need to kind of posture and send tomahawk missiles to some meadow in western Russia to prove how strong we are or whatever it is the national security establishment does. Now, I'm no fan of Russia. And we've gone through this in great detail. But a nation in crisis is not a nation prepared for war. I want to say that again, a nation in crisis that we are, we are not prepared nor should we be prepared. To try and deter, which comes from a Latin word push back or to reject Vladimir Putin's incursions on Ukraine.

Piers Morgan Lashes Out at Joe Biden in Uncensored Public Letter
"On the one year anniversary of Joe Biden's presidency, maybe it's good to consider a letter that an open letter that Piers Morgan, the Brit wrote. Dear Joe, happy anniversary. Can we get a divorce? Sorry, if this isn't the most effusive of messages, as you celebrate your first year as president, he writes, but I fear it's exactly what many disillusioned Americans, including some who voted for you are now thinking. I don't like to sugarcoat things, so let me be blunt, he writes, you've been a disaster. It's hard to think of a more insipid, less inspiring fiasco ridden opening 12 months to a presidency. You are going to reunite a bitterly fractured country by ending the anger in harsh rhetoric, remember? You failed. You're enraged spiteful Republican bashing speeches at the start of the year. We're just as divisive as anything Trump ever spewed. You are going to defeat COVID. Remember, you failed. More Americans have died from coronavirus on your watch than under president Trump. The variant is surging out of control all over the country. You're testing system has been disastrously slow and you've still only persuaded 63% of Americans to be vaccinated. You're going to fix the economy. Remember, you failed, inflation is raging over 7%, fuel and energy bills are soaring. Consumer prices are spiking on everything from food to cars to furniture. You are going to lean on your many decades as a senator to bring bipartisan deal making back to D.C.. Remember, you've failed. In fact, you can't even persuade two of your own Democrat senators to agree with you about key policies. Never mind the Republicans from voting rights and work vaccine mandates to climate change, social spending, your legislative efforts are a catastrophe. On the international stage, Piers Morgan writes, you're standing is even worse thanks to your appalling decision to abruptly abandon the people of Afghanistan to the Taliban wolves last summer. In the shameful chaos that ensued 13 U.S. troops nearly 200 civilians killed. No wonder, Vladimir Putin is looking his lips at the chance to invade Ukraine. The ruthless Russian leaders brazen warmongering antics suggest he senses weakness in you in the United States. You're too old to weary to bogged down in domestic strife to have the energy or will to take him on. Mister president, you keep saying you want to build back better, but America is now in a worse position than it ever was before you were elected. Ravaged by the virus, a battered economy, rising violent crime, deteriorating border issues. People feel poorer, sicker and less safe.

Why Are Non-COVID Deaths Up 40%?
"And what we saw just in third quarter, we're seeing a continue into fourth quarter is that death rates are up 40% over what they were pre-pandemic. Now, just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three sigma or a one in 200 year catastrophe would be 10% increase over pre-pandemic. So 40% is just unheard of. And what the data is showing to us is that the deaths that are being reported as COVID deaths greatly understate the actual death losses among working age people from the pandemic. It may not all be COVID on their death certificate, but deaths are up just a huge, huge numbers. That is Scott Davison, who is the CEO of a $100 billion insurance company that is headquartered in Indianapolis, and they have customers across the country. The company has approximately 2400 employees, and sells life insurance, including group life insurance to employers nationwide. Again, let me repeat what he said. We are seeing huge, huge numbers, and that it's not elderly people who are dying, but primarily working age people 18 to 64. What we saw in the third quarter and were continuous to see it into the fourth quarter is that death rates are up over 40% what they were pre-pandemic. Just to give an idea of how bad that is, a three sigma or a one in a 200 year catastrophe would be a 10% increase over pre-pandemic. So 40% is just unheard of. So he says that, look, a one in 200 year catastrophe, a flood a tsunami, yellow fever would be 10%, 40%, death increase. For people ages 18 to 64. Now, for those of you that are listening on radio or podcasting or live stream, have you heard any of your elected officials, any of the politicians that you send to state capitals or to Washington D.C. even mention this? A 40% increase in death amongst working age people. What could possibly explain this?
Democrats Come to Grips With Looming Election Reform Defeat
"There's a really interesting new snippet from Politico. They do a daily deal called playbook, most of it is garbage to be honest. It's kind of gossip. It is the closest thing that has been created in D.C. to kind of page 6 of politics, not to say that it's poorly sourced, but it's kind of gossipy. It's one off sources and people read it like that, but this one was super interesting. It says this that, and this actually cites a New York Times article from Katie edmondson. That's a good Swedish name. With the latest state of play and Sarah faris and Marie Marianne Levine and Nancy vu. My goodness, a lot of authors of that article. Democrats are starting to come to grips with the quote looming election reform defeat and quote grapple openly grappling. With what to tell their voters when they come up short. Frontline House Democrats eager to boost their prospects in November are urging their party leadership to break up build back better into a series of votes on popular planks. Even if that means giving up one grand Bill, even if those bills have no shot of becoming law. But Washington posts Mariana Sotomayor reports that leadership has been cool to this idea so far. While some front liners want to focus more on selling the infrastructure law and other accomplishments, steny Hoyer says, quote, the tension was surfaced in a meeting earlier this month. And the second highest ranking member of their caucus. Susan wild from Pennsylvania says I don't care. Telling Hoyer that House Democrats should spend the year sending bills to the Senate with the hope of bipartisan deals that could be reached on issues important to a broad range of voters. These Democrats are talking more like Japanese kamikaze pilots than

Journalist John Solomon on Voter Rights and Suppression
"And I'm proud to present to you on Sebastian gorka's show John Solomon John welcome to the program. Great to have you with us brother. It is good to be with you. Happy Monday. Happy Monday. Here we go and happy Martin Luther King day. John. You're our go to guy if I may. And so would you explain to me the pressing is voting rights situation? You know, John, I didn't know there was suppressing votes in America. I didn't know I always felt as a person who just showed up and voted my fault was being suppressed. My vote wasn't counted because I wasn't one illegal. Number two, I wasn't dead yet. Despite what you might hear right here. Explain, explain to me, what is going on with this voting rights like they double that and they go to Georgia where they might very well have been shenanigans down there and I'm being kind in the 2020 election, but they doubled down. Could you break down what they want to vote for? And what they will end up with down in D.C., please. Yeah. Well, first off, the bill is in some dire trouble because there are at least four Democrats that are holding the line on it. Joe Manchin, Kirsten sinema, Mark Kelly and I'm thinking that the fourth one now just gave my mind. But they've got a little bit of opposition in their own party, particularly in these Democrats that are in the swing states. And so the bill may not happen. It may go the road of the BBB and some of the other Biden democratic plans. But the big thing that Joe Biden talks about being Jim Crow two is the idea that it is inherently racist. It is voter disenfranchising to ask someone to show their ID before they vote or descend in an absentee ballot. And this is an interesting thing because every poll that I've seen in the last year, including one, we did it just to know news says 70 80% of Americans support this. But there's a fascinating new poll out in Michigan. It surveyed Michigan voters who voted in the last election. And here is the ticker. African American voters, the very voters that Joe Biden says are disenfranchised by a voter ID. They support voter ID by Uranus, 79%. In fact, black voters were more strongly supporting of voter ID than all other voters
Monica Crowley Was the 'First Casualty of Trump'
"Welcome back to one on one with me, Sebastian gorka, and Monica Crowley. Will you just share with our listeners, the lessons learned or what you'd like to tell them after your experience? Because as my good friend Chris plant says who has the morning show in D.C., the aim is very simple. The aim is to prevent decent people from ever considering serving a conservative administration. So what is your message after you stepped into the arena as well and paid the price? Yes, well, thank you for that question. That was a very dark time for me. So I appreciate your asking. Yeah, originally, I was going into the Trump administration with general Flynn. I was going to be the strategic communications director for the NOC. And I was mercilessly mercilessly attacked with lies and smears and it was a relentless campaign to try to remove me. What I didn't understand in retrospect is that they were targeting me they didn't care about me. They were targeting general Flynn, and of course Donald Trump. So I was in the crossfire. But I also now know in retrospect because this was January of 2017 that they were targeting Flynn and now we all know that. And what better way than to remove the person who was going to be on TV radio and in print every day, defending Flynn and defending the administration's foreign policies, me. So they had to remove me to isolate Flynn in order to attack him. So they smeared with a pack of lies. And I will say that the lesson here is twofold. One, I was the first casualty of Trump to, when you go into government like this, you assume that everybody is on the same side and they're

Beto O'Rourke Is Down 8 Points in the Polls for Texas Governor
"Some interesting news out of Texas, beto o'rourke, the skateboard man, the cool cat who almost upset Ted Cruz for the Senate race in Texas is now running for governor against, well, against governor Abbott. And he's down 8 points in the polls. And we're trying to explore what's going on in Texas. Now here's an interesting story. Texas Democrat named Ryan gillan, who's from the south part of Texas, Debbie understands that part of the country better than I do, but in any event he has defected to the Republican Party. And so honey, listen to this, he goes, first of all, he says, you know, many of us are waking up to the fact that the values of those in Washington D.C. are not our values, so he's talking here about the Biden administration. And then he gives three reasons. He goes the ideology of defunding the police. That's number one. Of destroying the oil and gas industry. Number two, and the chaos at our border is disastrous for those of us who live here in South Texas now. This guy, one is seat by nearly 17 points in the last election, so he's in a very safe seat.

Sebastian Talks to Former Green Beret Jim Hanson
"Why is it that conservatives, they're not even in the beta stage? They're in the cradle sucking their thumb. They've got their binky toddlers thrown up. Right. And they don't do IO. If you think of just let's think of January 6th for a second. If no, let's go back. A call I had after January 6th, we had what, 14,000 National Guard deploy, 12 foot high fences. It looked like checkpoint Charlie D.C. was Berlin in 1970, raised the wire, razor wire, okay guys, about raised the wire topped the 12 foot fences. And rang in and said, as we were seeing these images of the convoys, the caravans coming from the south where the let me and Biden he should have calls into this show and says, why doesn't the GOP just buy a thousand let me in Nancy t-shirts? And we stand at the 12 foot fence in front of the National Guard and have people take photographs. I thought, dude, you should be doing IO in the bowels of, you know, the CIA. Fort Pelosi tour guide. Right. Seriously. And what did the GOP do about that? Nothing. Zilch. No, no. So can you first diagnose? Is it the old saw that? Well, we're too busy being individuals and making money. Why do concerns not do IO? I think that. Yeah. Well, because the creative class is mostly on the left. And that grew out of. But why? Because in 1945, in 1950, it was ours. It was all Hungarian Jews in Hollywood. I mean, it was all emigres who loved America and made those amazing films. So what? Did we just kind of surrender the territory? Basically. You know, if you look at what happened, it was the universities and the leftist intelligentsia invaded those places and used them because they understood the value of the culture war. And we were more if your wicked smart on the conservative side, you generally go into business. Yeah. And that's just a thing. So I think we've now recognized that we've been losing that war so badly that we have to do something about it. And so we have to get over the whole thing that people always say on the right eagles don't flock. Right. Yeah, but lions hunt in a pride, right? So let's start ripping those hyenas and jackals of the left. The woke left into shreds when they come in our
Sydney Watson Not Surprised Joe Biden Wants More Social Media Censorship
"So Joe Biden earlier today you may not have heard it but it's the same thing you've heard a thousand times from a thousand times from leftist was calling for social media companies to censor content He didn't agree with on coronavirus Now Sydney I find that talking point from the left that I hear often just kind of fascinating because it's people like you and I who have been the things we've been discussing eventually came to fruition and came to be true that masks were largely ineffective that maybe we should ask questions about the vaccine despite you just taking it as face value is going to be 90% effective Things like hey these lockdowns don't really seem to effective They don't really seem to be doing things So we were actually the true tellers and the irony of that again you have the most powerful man in the world now calling for social media companies to squash content you and I put out that was largely predictive of where we are right now Yeah I mean I was watching a press conference that he gave this morning where he was saying social media platforms I implore you get rid of all the disinformation and misinformation Honestly again I'm not really surprised And when I was living in D.C. actually Biden's campaign manager was my landlord And so I remember the few conversations that the few conversations that my housemate who works on the hill she and I would have with these people I remember thinking God if you're the future of this country where I can't swear on your show but where asked basically so yeah hearing these talking points coming particularly from the president and some of these other big players in our political space It worries me in the sense that what you said is a 100% correct If we're making predictions or people are making predictions about the trajectory of the country or some of these policies and mandates and whatnot And there's a kernel of truth to them Why wouldn't we want to have access
The Coming, Lethal Threat to Our Republic No One Is Talking About
"This is one of those issues where all of a sudden 6 years from now. You might see a total change in the power in D.C. and you'll remember this conversation and you'll wish I wish I would have taken that more seriously. Why don't we take the maps more seriously? We're here with Tyler Boyer speaking on behalf of turning point action also he's the RNC committee men for the great state of Arizona. We only have about 5 minutes to go through this. Tile gets some immediate thoughts. Yeah, so just to the piggyback on the last conversation we were having. So just to put this into perspective for everyone listening, the redistricting process really started two years ago. Three years ago. So those of you that are feeling helpless now, you feel helpless because this really was happening two to three years ago and the insiders that managed this whole process, like I said in the state Arizona, it basically comes down to one person that gets to pick all the maps for the state because that one independent is the deciding vote. And so in a lot of states that where you're that way, you're going to feel helpless. So we're here to add some positive spin to it, which is how do we not feel helpless? How do we take control? Yeah, and I want to just kind of show the Democrats are mini celebrating right now. This is sleepy eye chuck Todd from MSNBC. MSN DNC, talking about, hey, the maps are actually looking pretty good. I just want to reiterate this. They're shocked. They can't believe it. They thought they were going to get clobbered, cut 90. Right now, with about half of the 2022 U.S. House district straw, Democrats are in a bit of a better position than they may be expected to be. According to the cook political reports, Dave wasserman, based on what we know so far, there will be a few more Biden won districts than there are now. How is this possible Tyler? Because I thought if chuck Todd is surprised about this, they were anticipating getting clobbered in this. Man, I hate seeing chuck Todd and just ruined your date, as I hear his voice. I miss Russia's p.m. SNP. I prefer that over DNC. But here's the reason why they're celebrating their many celebrating early right now because it's not over because a lot of these governors have to approve the maps and the Republican states. And so things could shift and swing a little bit. But they're excited because basically there was never an anticipation that redistricting was going to be awash.

Taking the Fight for Good Conservative Solutions to Everyone
"I was on the rules comedian in D.C. for four years. I learned the ends out. I learned more on that. I was on the floor all the time, so I had to even more so be engaged. And I brought up the idea and I was stuck to this and it made some out of the rules committee members man that if you had an amendment for the rules committee that you want to because here's what happens, you know this and for the listener out there, people will have their staff draw up amendments. They'll send them to the rules committee and never come and testify at rules committee. They just did it because they can do a press release on the amendment. And so I came up with the idea and it didn't go very well, but if you had an amendment that you actually wanted voted on or you wanted to go to the four, you actually had to come to the rules committee present your amendment and answer questions about your amendment. And you would have thought that you would have thought that I was just the most heretical person in the world for actually believing people ought to know what they're trying to put into a bill. Because you and I both know many of these ideas are coming not from members, but from other places.

"In my years in D.C. before I became ranking member and had to fight with Nadler and the judiciary committee the whole time. But Hakeem was my partner. My democratic counterpart owned things like first step act, which was the criminal justice reform. The music modern is a cloud act. He and I worked through some very large pieces of legislation that was technical and trying to get through. But he and I worked through those. Now, make no mistake. He's very liberal. I'm very conservative, but it was that bond that we could find in the areas where we could agree, we were choosing to agree.

We'll actually this only goes back to twenty nine thousand nine. This is rather new one of those Yearbook school photo companies. That said. hey let's make this a day and so it's today the point of the day. Actually i guess share those high school or even the elementary school photos of yourself in social media so that people can really have a laugh. No you were cute really yeah. It's also international box wine day today and before you share those photos or look at other people's photos you might wanna grab some wine. Just 'cause there's going to be some comments just say it's national weiner schnitzel day today as well now. I'm not talking about the food place. Now that's the us food chain right now. No no not talking about that. I am talking about the thin breaded. Pan-fried veal cutlet is primarily from switzerland and austria and germany. It is actually the national dish of austria. Which means arnold schwarzenegger probably loves this. So if you eat a lot of weiner schnitzel. You'll probably look like arnold schwarzenegger. I'm just putting two and two together here and i think that's likely the largest schnitzel way two thousand six hundred sixty three pounds and it was made it a festival in germany back in september of twenty nineteen So there you go. Oh by the way it goes back to eighteen thirty one i. It's also national teddy bear day today but instead of talking about teddy bears i can tell you. They're named after teddy roosevelt or theodore roosevelt and the whole hunting story. And all that stuff. But no i i. I'm talking about very specific. Bears today specifically care bears. Yeah because it's care. Bears share your care day. Yeah that's an actual thing. Believe it or not yes so this is actually from the care. Bears website Care bears and that's a trademark. So i could get in trouble for this. Maybe i don't know share your care. Day is celebrated annually on september ninth care. Bears are on a mission to spread carrying and sharing around the world and encouraged fans to spread carrying sharing. Love friendship acceptance. Fun happiness to those that you love everyday so it's got a good thing behind it. I i should note and went to the care. Bears website to go. Look all of this stuff up right and what's interesting about it. Is they have a kid section and they have an adult section now the adult section before you get frightened there. It's it's just so that you can buy care bears for your kids. But when i saw that. I kinda took it the wrong way you know. I thought maybe they're going to check my age or something. make sure i'm eighteen Before i access the special care bears don't know anyway. Yeah they they started out as a greeting cards right they. They basically were little characters inside of greeting cards and as with everything in the eighties. They were super commercialized. They each have their own personality. There was also books and candy and stickers close. I remember somebody coming to. School is probably in their school photo. with a care bear on there. I don't know why. I remember that but sweatshirt of a care bear. I think i remember 'cause i might have been laughing a little bit back. Then i don't know anyway They were basically repping their own. Little personas count like seven wars. And they were small. I guess kind of like the seven dwarfs. Maybe that's where they got the idea. I don't know why they did. Do movies The interesting one about their movies was the care. Bears movie to it featured a young girl who sold her soul to a shape shifting demon. That's a kids movie She did that so that she could be better at sports. And by the way. I should mention she was killed in the movie by the demon slayer bear. Okay i made that last part but that would have been a cool ending right. Yeah okay after the adult section remark and the demon bear thing. I don't think the care bears are going to be happy that i'm talking about today. Let's move on shall we. Let's move on to our historic events of the day and we start in seventeen ninety one washington. Dc the capital got its name. Yeah now okay. So washington dc actually would love to become a state by the way. Why well okay. Let's get into that. There's first of all. They're several hurdles that they're going to have to jump through before they can become a state now last year the house actually voted to allow dc to become a state. But that's as far as the got the okay the real question here is why do they want to become a state. Will currently congress essentially controls the local budget for them they also Give them very little say in just about anything and they have very little say in what the country does because yes they've got a congressional rep but that rep can't vote. Yeah it's a nonvoting rep. She can introduce bills and things like abbott. that's it. She can't actually vote on anything so their license plate there. They say taxation without representation so really. It's small area right. it's a city. How're you gonna turn the city into a state but if you think about this state would actually have more people in it than vermont and wyoming. So it's got about seven hundred thousand people and actually alaska only has seven hundred forty thousand people so it would be a pretty decent size as far as population goes. So what's the big deal. Why can't it just become a state will see they would get two senate seats Voting rights would happen in the house and that would perhaps shift control of both the house and the senate because dc is a blue area so it would be a blue state so therefore republicans are very happy about this whole thing. So the chances of this happening. I think it's pretty slim at least right now but if things change then perhaps we will see a difference in some point. Maybe they will get the statehood that they have been asking for for a really really long time. Speaking of statehood will california was admitted as a state on this day in eighteen fifty. Yeah california became the thirty first. Us state now. Let's you know whenever. I talk about a state becoming a state. I always like to give details about that particular state and this one. I actually live it. So i can tell you firsthand. What's going on here in california. Well there's forty million people in california and sometimes all of those people are on the freeway the same freeway in los angeles. Yeah we have five hundred faultlines here in california and that's why we're known for earthquakes. Four thousand seven hundred wineries and that's why we're known for wine. We've got movie studios national parks national forests out. I should say that many of those national forests are closed. Actually all of them are right. Now because of fire concerns so yeah. There's some bad things here in california. Like for instance. We're a big state which might give us political power. We've got that political power but.

If it wasn't for the cnbc anchor drinking bitcoin into the conversation. He didn't bring golden the conversation. He immediately brought bitcoin into the conversation. Which is what every cnbc anchor is trained to do right. They have to do that. They have to ask everybody who comes on about bitcoin right. Because that's what they're advertiser needs. That's what gray scale need. They need to keep pumping up bitcoin. So they're saying oh you're saying there's going to be a weak dollar. There's lots of inflation. People should buy bitcoin so now that the guy's been asked about bitcoin. He actually said well. Yeah you know. I think is certainly feeds into the band for bitcoin. People are looking to get out of the dollar and so they can buy bitcoin so now he's kind of talking to bitcoin playbook and even brought up gold and he said you know i think gold would be much stronger than it is right now. If it wasn't for bitcoin he said if bitcoin hadn't arrived on the scene. I think gold would be much than it already is and he thinks that some of the demand that would normally go into gold is going into bitcoin and to a degree. That may be happening. I think what's probably happening to a greater degree is. Some people aren't buying gold or bitcoin. They might buy gold but they're saying well. I don't want to buy gold. Because bitcoin is the new gold. I don't really wanna buy bitcoin. But i'm worried about buying gold if bitcoin is gonna steal splendor so maybe is preventing people from buying gold. They're not buying bitcoin either. But they're not buying gold but there probably are some investors that are buying bitcoin instead of gold. I think it's unfortunate. They're gonna lose a lot of money. in fact. I think one of the reasons that some of the hedge funds may have an interest in bitcoin. Because it's moving up so much and number hedge funds day take twenty percent of the prophets but they mark the prophets to market every quarter. And so if you've got a big bubble it keeps going up even though you don't actually realize the profits by selling because if you try to sell the prophets will evaporate you can still charge your clients twenty percent of those paper prophets and put real money in your pocket while your clients are just holding fake money and so then when the bubble pops and all that paper profit evaporates and your clients have huge losses. You still have your actual incentive the money that you charged on the way up. You get to keep that. That's real money. You took those chips off the table while you left claims money totally at risk on the table and so your clients end up getting wiped out but you still end up with a pretty good payday. So there's there's some of that going on where you have an incentive for people who are managing other people's money to put other people's money at risk and then get paid as they marked a bubble higher but have nothing on the table of their own when the air comes out..

"That is being unleashed but why was the market up. Wasn't the dow down six hundred. Why wasn't it down two thousand. This is clearly bad news. I mean at the stock market rallied because of trump and deregulation and tax cuts. If now we're gonna have reregulation tax hikes now. We have a smooth sailing for the biden administration to undo this supposed benefits of the trump administration. Why is this good news and the reason is pretty clear it should be anyway. Certainly the people who listen to this podcast. Look the only thing that the democratic congress means it's a threat to corporate earnings higher taxes and more regulations are going to reduce corporate earnings. But who cares about corporate earnings. People aren't buying stocks because of their earnings people couldn't care less about corporate earnings. The other thing is that a biden presidency with a democratic congress. It means that the economy is going to be weaker than it. Otherwise would have been. Had there been bigger obstacles in congress to biden getting his legislation passed right so the economy is going to be weaker than it. Otherwise would have been and corporate profits will be lower than they otherwise would have been but who gives a damn none of this matters in this market. The only thing that matters is because the democrats have the senate and the house that means budget deficits are going to be larger and of course the economy being weaker also means the deficits will be larger but increase government spending because bigger programs will be passed so we have much bigger deficits either because of increased spending or a weaker economy which decreases revenue so. We have bigger deficits. What does that mean that means the federal reserve is going to print even more money to finance those deficits and that is the reason. The stock market is up. It is money printing it is inflation that is driving. The stock market. Part of the proof is that what are the stocks that did the best resource stocks look at oil stocks. They are on fire. In fact oil prices closed above fifty dollars a barrel. This is the first time they'd been above fifty since the market collapsed when the pandemic began. I think back in february march. Now we're back above that level part of that had to do with saudi arabia yesterday announcing production cuts unilaterally. This is going to help. Limit supply as demand is returning but across the board. Look at the base metal stocks look at the agriculture stocks. These stocks are on fire. We're seeing huge moves in the resource sector. This is inflation driven now. Yes some of the smaller stocks rallied today as well. You actually had the banks. Regional banks had a big day but the reason banks went up is because you had a huge increase in interest rates long term interest rates. Went way out because treasuries got clobbered in fact yield on the ten year is now back above one percent now that sounds low and in absolute terms it is low but in relative terms the yield on the ten year treasury earlier. This year was below forty basis points. Now it's at one point. Oh four approximately so percent. So even we're low in relative terms. We're much higher than we used to be. And what's more important. Is trent an explosive. Move up in interest rates now. The only reason we may not see an explosive move up. Interest rates is because the federal reserve doesn't let it happen because the federal reserve interferes in the bond market by printing even more money to buy even more bonds to prevent rates from rising..

"Thirty first one a day so much to discuss. And i might as well just do it. All chronologically starting with these special elections that we had yesterday in georgia. We got the results late last night early this morning and unfortunately the democrats toke both of the senate seats. I was pretty clear that it was going to be a winner. Take all it was hard to believe that voters would split the take it when people were voting for who they wanted to control the united states senate. Did you want the democrats to control or did you want the republicans and since that was the rationale behind the vote. It wouldn't really make sense that people would just vote for the candidates. They were really voting for the party. And so that's why it was either going to be the republicans winning both or the democrats winning both at it ended up being the democrats. And if you're looking for somebody to blame for this loss. I think the one person that is the most to blame is president. Donald trump and i criticize trump. The day he stabbed any relatively fiscally responsible. And again i put that in quotes. Because i don't know that any republicans really are still fiscally responsible. But clearly on a relative basis there are some that are less irrresponsible than others and whoever those republicans are donald trump stabbed them in the back in a very visible way when he threatened to veto the stimulus bill. Which of course he didn't follow through with but the reason he said he wanted to veto it was because he wasn't generous enough he didn't think a six hundred dollar check was big enough and he wanted everybody to get a two thousand dollar check and of course. He didn't care how much larger the deficits would be to make. Goes checks possible right to make sure they didn't bounce. He didn't care how much money to federal reserve was going to have to print. So the checks wouldn't bounce. He wanted americans to get two thousand dollar checks now that put senate republicans in an untenable position where they were the only thing standing between voters and a two thousand dollar check because the soon as donald trump made the selfish mistake of grandstanding about how he was the one that wanted to give everybody a two thousand dollar check as if he was writing a check out of his own bank account. It's easy to be generous with somebody else's money but donald trump said. I want two thousand dollars and nancy. Pelosi being the good politician that she is right immediately seized on the opportunity that handed her to immediately call for a vote in the house of representatives unanimous consent to agree with the president and deliver additional checks. Two thousand dollar check to every voter and the only reason that that didn't happen was because you had republicans in the united states senate that didn't want as big a hole in the deficit. Not that they're already isn't a gaping hole in there anyway but i guess they had to draw a line somewhere and so they said that's it. We're not going to do these. Two thousand dollar checks it's too much borrowed money. It's too much money printing. It's not necessary. You know we're not gonna give checks to people who don't need it and so they stopped the checks and that opened up a great window of opportunity for president elect joe biden because he basically was able to frame the george election as a referendum on those checks biden actually bribed the electorate the voters by basically saying. Hey if you want your two thousand dollar check you need to vote democrat if you vote republican and the senate stays in republican hands. You're not going to get your two thousand dollars because those greedy republicans won't sign onto the legislation but if you send to new democrats to washington that will approve of the two thousand dollar checks..

Every member of the team were a t shirt with looked like seven bullet holes in the back representing the seven times Jacob Blake was shot in the back by officer rest and ski in Kenosha. We need to understand that. When most of home we still are black in the sense that our families matter on TV Wednesday night in place of the Games that were played coaches, players, and commentators just talked. About what it feels like to be black in America and to watch what happened this week in Kenosha. Today yesterday you know. I was sitting here and I started crying. This is former player. Now commentator Robert Ory in his heart to tell you fourteen years. About him. When he walks door and twenty, one year old son I worry about him and Chris Webber another former player have a god Son has autism and I just had to explain to him. Why we aren't playing? Have Young nephews had to talk to about death before they even seen it in the movie. If not now when If not doing pandemic. And, countless lives being lost if not now win. It's striking to watch the sports world react this week when you consider how different things were just a few years ago. Moments ago as the rams came out of the tunnel tape on Austin and Kenny, Britt acknowledged the events in Ferguson. Anywhere joined by the rest of the receiving core that can two thousand, Fourteen, two years before Colin. Kaepernick kneeled during National Anthem. NFL players from the Saint Louis Rams took the field with their hands raised over their heads like hands up don't shoot. This was just a few months after Michael. Brown was shot and killed by police in. Ferguson Missouri have you seen this five players from the Saint Louis Rams to the field with their hands up. An apparent protest and show support for the Ferguson protests. This was all over cable news a Saint Louis Police Union petitioned the NFL to discipline the players and there was even talk about whether that would happen ultimately, it didn't. But the NFL with this season plans to paint end racism on its playing fields expressed no support for the players 'cause at the time. So many people have reached out to me. Telling me there sorry that this happened to my family. Don't be sorry. Because this has been happening to my family for a long time Jacob Blake Sister Latisha Wiedeman talked about Michael Brown and others to reporters this week for Landau. Mike Brown. Sandra.

At the result of. Those privileges. It brings America to a new low. It's hard and the backdrop to this is the Wisconsin governor. Tony has supported the authorization of members of the National Guard to come to Kenosha to help law enforcement. You know I think that will probably hurt more than help the situation the people. Not, only in a city of Kenosha in the state of Wisconsin, they're calling for a dialogue there needs to be some type of change. Then it happens from the top down, it happens from the chief of police in Kenosha county standing up and saying these officers where he no rogue, they did not follow the standard operating procedures. This is not the way we train our officers, and as a result you know we're looking it's taking disciplinary action as a result of that. That's the type of action that will calm these type of situations. Chica Blake was shot essentially in front of his children. What kind of condition are they in right now how is the family coping?

"Been in v very early. Eighteen hundreds DC gave the part of DC long-term Virginia back to Virginia could DC give the part of DC that used to belong to Maryland back to Maitland, your Representative from Alan. So there's a great question to ask you. Well, I think it's a better question as the citizens of the district Columbia because it ought to be their choice. We, we are a nation that believes in citizens have in the choice, put a Rico, we've mentioned Puerto Rico. They have a choice. They can be an independent nation. They can be a state, whether they're Commonwealth out of the United States is really a decision of the United States. But having said that frankly, I think that takes for granted that we can just push the residents of the district Columbia wherever we wanna place them. They really ought to have that choice, and they made a clear choice. They made a very clear choice that they want to be an independent sovereign state of the union, and in that context, that's what. They ought to be the choice has been made people go into the polls, they were asked to want to become a state, and they voted overwhelmingly to become a state. You can't take a city, which has acted in every way, like a state is treated even for capita distribution of federal funds, like state and squeeze it into Maryland. Malan has only one big cities Baltimore, you change the entire character of the state of Maryland. No wonder Maryland would have to think twice. And of course, the district has thought more than twice it wants to be made. A compromise. We merge, the Dakotas together, put them back into Wednesday 'cause it was some gerrymandering, the first place and, you know, you could consolidate the number of states. Okay. All right. Next, I mentioned the partisan implications and that is something that I want to get into because it is going to be an obstacle that Democrats will have to overcome. And also, it kind of raises questions about how important of an issue this is now. And when you listen to national Democrats and activists around the country oftentimes on the left of us, we need to make structural changes in order to ensure the Democrats can pass their agenda on a federal level and those structural changes could include statehood for DC and Puerto Rico. It could include abolishing the electoral college, it could include packing the supreme court. You hear a lot of these big ideas, kind of lumped together in terms of changes that people argue would make the country more democratic, but, of course, would also help Democrats pass their agenda on the federal level. How much of a role does that play in considerations? Now of making estate doesn't pay any consideration Dale. We'll. Ultimately play a consideration. Let's take the last two states to into the union. Alaska Hawaii, they have flipped easily flipped being democrat and Republican the way I the reason I bring that up is essentially the way in which days have gotten to the union has been very partisan usually takes democratic state, Republican state. We're that we're aware of that. And when it comes to actual when we get closer to what you actually going to do going to have to figure out what you do. Meanwhile the way in which the congress of the United States, works, it is one step at a time. Nobody says, okay, I guess I won't go for statehood. Until I find a corollary state things push other things to happen. And maybe by the time we have to stay at hood, it won't be one to one. But first thing we have to do is to establish the foot hole in the people's house. Then you go onto the next. Acknowledgment though, that you may have to admit a fifty second St. along. It is not that it is no such thing, south Utah, south. You're snow such thing tells you traditionally, there has been some political equivalence would have to, to take what we have done, you know, in the last time state was into more than fifty years ago and say, we're going to have to do exactly the same thing is not to ride with history. So we are going to have to deal with the fact that any big city. And yes, the district of Columbia is largely to is going to be largely democratic. How do you cope with that equivalent? Well we'll, we'll call cross that bridge when we get to it. Let me let me yes, that's obviously, an issue the partisanship, but very frequent when Tom Davis was a member of congress from the state of Jinya and was leader in the Republican party Curtis when Norton, and I and Tom Davis worked together on legislation, which would have. Least given at least give an Eleanor Holmes, Norton, a full vote in the Carson tonight'd states, hell by adding an additional Representative from Utah, which they were on the cusp of being eligible for an ultimately got very frankly. Now we're saying to the fact that it was one for one. We didn't get it was a permanent one for temporary one. Right. Because there was no guaranteed having an extra Representative in the next congress after district, you're absolutely correct. And that's one of the reasons I have concluded that statehood is the option because it would be a tragic if we did what we do nail as majority leader back in twenty six twenty seven, I offered to our rules package, the ability of the representatives from territories. And from the district of Columbia to vote in the committee of the whole, and we could do that by legislation and Republicans frankly took us. Court on that. And the court said, no, that was okay. We could do that. So that Eleanor had a vote in the as she said she boats she voted the committee of the hall. But when the Republicans took back control of the house in twenty ten they eliminated that vote, which we thought was a terrible lack of respect and democratic principles being extended to individuals who were representatives in the United States. So the only way you can do it permanently not have a subsequent congress. Yeah, changing. Yeah. Is to have stated. But I must say that temporary. They is no way in was Utah. Whatever laws state, it see you get a seat as you grow. And you couldn't very easily take away DC's of vote. We talked about a house vote, only then so I do not agree. It would have been temporary. I guess the argument is in the next round of apportionment Utah. What thirty seven bright Utah would have got. But it would have throwing though, I think support it was one for one. So in that case, even then we couldn't get it done. No. Wait a minute. But the reason wasn't one for one. The reason was the gun Bill, somebody attached a gun Bill. We got it through the house. We got it through the Senate both houses voted to give DC a seat. But the National Rifle Association encourage somebody to attach what we call a rider, that would have eliminated all of the districts gun. Safety laws.
