FDA Slaps Warning on Puberty Blockers
"Another article from the daily wire, FDA officials warn of brain swelling, vision loss in minors using puberty blockers. PewDiePie blockers, I'm not going to be used to scientific work because I'm going to butcher it. It was at least put out there by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the FDA, earlier this month saying that drugs could cause brain swelling loss of vision and serious risk for children injecting the hormone. It's a particular hormone that's injected so that puberty can be blocked. So that if your mama is a child groomer and she wants you to be a boy and you a girl, they give you these puberty blockers so you don't develop as a girl. After puking. Why would you need puberty blockers if you were born this way? 'cause you don't need puberty blockers, these people are insane.
When Children'S Minds Are Made for Study
"Talking about children, I'd like to entertain a subject with you. The subject of my column today, it's a tennis prager dot com and town hall dot com and it'll go to the daily wire and American greatness and Jewish world review and many others. But it's up at my website and up at town hall dot com. And my thesis is that when I was 12 years old and not just I, my classmates and I at 12 had more wisdom than the vast majority of professors at American universities do today, let alone college students. Again, I repeat, I am certain that it's a big claim. I am certain that I and most of my classmates had more wisdom at the age of 12 than almost any professor in America today. From Harvard to anywhere else that you'd like to think about. The professors have more knowledge, but I believe that the average 12 year old at what I attended he yeshiva, which is a religious Jewish education, half the day, hit the Hebrew original sources, and half the day secular teaching. So I went from 9 to 6 very often, always at least 9 to 5, is a very long day, and I learned an immense amount, both secular studies, and religious studies.

You're a Scientist? So What!
"I have been writing for over 20 years a column that comes out every Tuesday at Dennis prager dot com and starts at town hall and then my greats to daily wire American greatness. Jewish world review and many, many other places thank God, because I think I have something important to say, otherwise I wouldn't say it. So what happened was rare, I normally write the column over the course of the weekend and then polish it on Monday. It has to be submitted by Monday late afternoon. Obviously my time.

Nick Searcy Describes His Latest Film 'Terror on the Prairie'
"But now we're going to talk about your brand new adventure. It's scary. It's a western. It's from the guys at the daily wire. Tell us about terror on the Prairie. Well, terror on the Prairie is a great old throwback western. It's like a Sam Peckinpah movie. It's bloody and, you know, it's all about revenge and families and it's a terrific terrific ride. But it's a really a big step forward for the daily wire. It's important for conservatives to start making popular entertainment. And that's what the daily wire is trying to do. And this movie with Gina Carano, who, of course, was the actress that was famously canceled for no good reason by Disney. Is the star of the movie and is her first venture with them. And it was an honor for me to be part of it. I'm actually the title role. I'm the terror. You're the bad guy, right? Your hat should be black not why you're wearing the wrong hat. Well, I'm a good guy in real life. So all
Why Dennis Was Very Moved at a Recent Daily Wire Event
"Last night, 3000 people, the vast majority of whom were young. In other words, I would say under 35. Certainly under 40. To the great credit of daily wire that sponsored the event that's the Ben Shapiro organization. 3000 people. Again, mostly young. And Ben and his daily wire are associates all terrific guys, many of whom have been guests on my show, had a dialog. Then there was intermission. Then I was introduced, we Ben and I spoke, then we had Jordan Peterson, he was introduced. The people did not expect the people did not expect me, and they did not, they did not expect Jordan, so there was a real eruption of sentiment that applause. It was very, I was very moved in both cases for myself and for Jordan. So then Candace Owens was a Candace Owens. I forgot to mention, was there from the beginning. So yeah, I'm going to ask a good question, Sean asks if there's a video you can watch. You would love it. You would truly love it. I mean, Jordan Peterson Ben Shapiro, Candace Owens, myself, and three, four of his top people at daily wire. It was one of those moments where one of my personal attitudes was expressed itself. And that is, there are two types of temperaments, those who people who want to be stars from those who want to be on an all star team. My own temperament is I want to be on an all star team. So I felt that I was on one last night, and it was, it was a wonderful experience
Actor Nick Searcy Joins Dinesh to Talk About His Latest Film
"Guys, I'm happy to welcome back to the podcast award winning actor and producer Nick sir C you know him for his role in best picture winner, the shape of water. He's been in the Oscar nominated Moneyball and castaway and fried green tomatoes and runaway jury. He's also the course played the costarring role on the hit TV series, the FX series called justified, and he teamed up with filmmaker Chris burgard to make a terrific film about January 6th called capital punishment. We're gonna talk about that. Hey Nick, welcome to the podcast. Thanks for coming on. You are just telling me that you have your in a film that daily wire has just released. It's a western tell us about that one. Yeah, it's a western called terror on the Prairie, and I play the title role. I'm the terror. And that's kind of why I still look like Gabby Hayes a little bit. It's a real real throwback western and just a terrific experience, a great people with Gina Carano and Dallas Sonya and the daily wire people. It was great to make a movie with the where for once I wasn't outnumbered being a conservative on the set. And I know you're saying that the kind of old style western that we thought was extinct that Hollywood won't go near anymore. It's been revived in a kind of a new form. Tell us a little bit about how does this compare to the classic westerns with Gregory Peck and Clint Eastwood and so on. Well, it's really more of a throwback to the peckinpah westerns of the 70s. It's a little bit more like wild bunch than it is like the searchers because it's pretty bloody. There's quite a few crimes, let's say, in the movie and it's unflinching. And so I would say it's probably an R rated for violence type of
Sebastian Welcomes The Daily Wire's Michael Knowles to the Show
"He is one of the daily wires superstar. He is the author of a fabulous book called speechless. Michael Knowles, welcome back to America first. Excellent to be with you, sir. Thanks for having me. Well, it is delight. Your book has now just been released in paperback, which is a very, very good sign. We have so much to discuss, in addition to your colleague, Matt Walsh is a new movie, what is a woman, which I'll get to see as soon as somebody at the daily wire sends me a screener. We've been a little derelict on the screeners, but I have to tell you, especially because I do not get any cut of the subscription business. I really think they should just release this movie for free. If I got a cut, it would be different, but since they should be well, we know what the daily wise about. We know Jeremy boring just sucks in talent from around the planet and then builds this subscription empire. This empire. But you are one of the originals. For those who aren't familiar with his work, shame on you, but let's have a little introduction here at the beginning. Who is Michael Knowles and how did you get to do what you do today? I may be the only guy in the history of podcasting and show business who got his own show for not writing a book. It was very kind of you to plug my book speech less controlling words controlling minds. That book took a very long time to write because it had words in it. My first foray into the national political media was with a book called reasons to vote for Democrats, a comprehensive guide, 260 blank pages, endorsed by our favorite president Donald Trump endorsed by a number of other people as being really, really thorough. And that book, which was just a joke that I put out there. Did become a number one bestseller. New York Times didn't want to acknowledge that one either. And then somehow for not writing a book, I ended up getting my own show out of it. And I think, by the way, my book is proven more and more correct every single

Multiple People Killed in Shooting at Tulsa Medical Building
"Hoping to discontinue talking about I was really hoping that I was going to get the opportunity. I was, I was hoping that I was going to have to lay off of it just because I wanted to, not because another shooting has taken the attention from you, where a gunman, 18 year old man with an AR-15, and no it's not an assault rifle, it's an ArmaLite rifle. Went into a elementary school and began shooting indiscriminately. Now we have reports of a new shooting in Tulsa, Oklahoma came out yesterday. We didn't have a lot of the information, but if I was a betting man, I'm going to bet you guys that we're not going to hear much about this shooting for much longer. Why is that, mister Tatum? Because the shooter, according to The Associated Press, according to daily wire, the shooter was a black man. And y'all all know black men can do no wrong. And if somehow the police would have shot this man, even after he'd been in the act of shooting, they would have cried racism in Tulsa. Now I'm being, you know, a little bit exaggerated on the point, but you just Mark my word. Let's see how long this shooting lasts. The black

Tax Documents Reveal Truth About BLM Fraud
"My passion is to destroy the Black Lives Matter organization and show and prove to the world that they are the fraudulent organization that we always knew them to be. And this is not about politics. This is not about boot licking, Uncle Tom, and all this little crazy stuff people call me because I'm calling out the truth. This is about you understanding what the truth is and being able to make valuable decisions moving forward on who you support. Some of y'all was running around with a Black Lives Matter shirt on pumping your fist in the air, calling every white friend you know a racist. All in the name of what? Patrice colors should go to jail for this stuff. If you ask me, let's go through the financials. The financials were released. The headline reads from the daily wire, BLM cofounder paid her baby daddy. $970,000 for creative work, a creative services is what it's called. Quote unquote. Peter brother, $840,000 for security. Now, you know for a fact, they ain't doing no security and nobody doing nothing creative at Black Lives Matter to get almost a $1 million. But let's go through the finances in more depth or more in depth. $42 million in assets is what they were able to raise. They spent 37 million of those dollars on multiple different things that will make you sick to your stomach. I said it before, baby daddy got 970,000. Her brother got 840,000. The secretary of the BLM board secretary got 2.1 million Patrice Keller's had to reimburse Black Lives Matter because she spent $73,000 on a private jet.
The Left and Their Fight Against Truth
"I'd like you to see my column today. My website, town hall, RealClearPolitics that will move on to daily wire, American great mist, et cetera. But you could start with money website or town hall or RealClearPolitics. About how PolitiFact lied about me, purely a 100% lie, said that what I said was false. And I prove it's a lie. They quote left wing liars to support their lie. And. I'm thinking of suing one of the leftists that they cited, the man who was the director of the center to promote hate at Cal state San Bernardino. Its official name is what the hell is its official name? Let's see. I love the official name. Find center. Yeah, center for the study of hate them extremism. It's the center to promote hate him extremism. They got one word wrong. Guy named Brian Levin, whom I might sue. For saying I lied. I don't. I don't care when I'm cold beans, but that's the one thing that I staked my life really, my reputation on being a truth teller.
Michael Knowles: Why Catholic Support for the Right to Life Is Lagging
"Michael Knowles, host of the daily wires, the Michael Knowles show, everybody check that out. Michael, welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. It is great to be with you, man. Thanks for having me. Well, it's great to have you on the show all the time. I mean, it's great to have an apostate Catholic, be able to explain these horrendous poll numbers. I was like, Michael, you got some splaining to do my friend. Got this plane. Catholics, according to pew, you got 48% of Catholics that believe that abortion should be legal in all or most cases. So that's 48 to 47%. What the heck is going on right now? Well, it's very sad, but the reason that you see that is because Joe Biden calls himself a Catholic. Nancy Pelosi calls herself a Catholic. The Cuomo family has called themselves Catholics. They don't ascend to the teachings of the Catholic Church, but they were raised Catholic. Maybe they went to church on Sunday sometimes. And so they take it on as a kind of cultural identity. In a similar way that Jews will do this. Jews being an ethnicity and a religion will say I'm Jewish, even if they don't believe anything about the Jewish religion and they don't follow any of the practices. I have a sort of personal connection to this in that I was raised a cradle Catholic. I was, we have infant baptism, that's one of the reasons that people will keep this identity even if they don't actually practice the religion. And I went away. I fell away from the faith for about ten years. And I came back to it, and I came back to it in a very gradual way. And I came back to it through certain Protestant thinkers and through certain actually not even not Christian thinkers, and then I was convinced God exists. And then I was convinced Jesus is who he says he is, and that I was convinced that the Catholic Church really is the Catholic Church. And so I came back to it with all the zeal of a revert. All the zeal of a convert. And it drives me crazy because it take, for example, Joe Biden, who says he's Catholic, he goes, I believe he receives communion at mass, he is in a state of grave and unrepentant sin. He is supporting abortion in a very public way. He is committing the sin of scandal. He is committing all sorts of skins. And the scandal here is that he's leading the flock astray and it's a real risk. When Christ says, it's not going to go very well for those of you who lead the little ones astray. It's just thinking about that verse. Millstones and all of that. That's what we're talking about here. We're actually not even really talking about
Has the Left Learned How to Define a Woman?
"According to the American left, four days ago, they didn't know what women were. And over the course of the last three days they have rediscovered what women are. And the reality, according to the American left, is that women are tools, they're pawns, their pieces on a chess board to be moved around for the political benefit of American left elected officials and politicians. That's what women are. There have been people going around college campuses, including Friends from the daily wire, like Matt Walsh and people like Michael Knowles and Ben Shapiro and a whole bunch of people are going to college campuses, things that I don't do. Charlie Kirk and others and asking, you know, what does a woman do all of these? You know, college educated students, the very best of the best. That the brightest institutions of higher learning across the country and asking them a very simple basic biological question, what is a woman?
Jesse Watters: Hate Speech Is Just Stuff the Left Disagrees With
"Waters over Fox News channel had a really, really great monologue about this whole Elon Musk Twitter episode. Check this out. Hate speech is this stuff that liberals disagree with. Let's take a look at who they censored and why. Remember, Charlie Kirk, and the Babylon B, they got suspended for calling a biological man a man. Then Tucker Carlson was suspended after coming to their defense. They suspended a Chinese virologist who claimed COVID was made in the Wuhan lab. Doctor Robert Malone and mRNA scientist was permanently nuked for questioning the vaccine. And daily wire, cofounder Jeremy boring made a joke about Brussels sprouts and was knocked off. Libs of TikTok. Remember those guys? They were suspended for a hateful conduct. After bringing attention to videos made by these radical loons, all lives of TikTok was was a mirror. They just held up a mirror to libs of TikTok
CNN+ Looks Doomed as Public's Anti-Woke Appetite Grows
"So many of you have heard about this story of CNN plus. A CNN plus had the ambitious idea of trying to become some form of a Netflix for news. What a dumb idea. Axios dot com has come out and said that CNN plus looks doomed. CNN plus has roughly a 150,000 subscribers so far. We have more subscribers than CNN plus. Warner Bros. discovery wants to eventually bring all of them under one giant service around HBO Max, and CNN plus original plan was for CN plus to become profitable in four years by investing $1 billion into the service. Executives believe that if the service wasn't being kneecapped, its growth rate would have rivaled other print news outlets like The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, which have about 2.9 to 2.7 million digital subscribers, respectively. However, no one really wants to watch CNN plus. It's not just the fact that no one's subscribing to it, it's at the content itself, is going horribly. But it's not just on CNN plus, it's also Jon Stewart's new show. The post millennial dot com reports that Jon Stewart's new woke TV show tanks and loses 80% of viewers after first episode. It's on Apple TV. This is not sustainable at all. While shows like ours are flourishing and we're hiring and we're adding staff. And we are strengthening our entire program, our podcast is growing and our radio program is growing. And those things are doing on rumble is growing on YouTube. It's growing. Jon Stewart is floundering. No one wants that information. In fact, the shows like Bill Maher and Joe Rogan and ours and the people at the daily wire, the great folks of the daily wire, they're doing very well. There is kind of this anti woke appetite that is growing amongst the people.
Who Is Controlling the American Church?
"Who is controlling the American church. What if I told you that the federal government had infiltrated parts of American evangelical Christianity? Well, Megan basham from the daily wire has done some amazing investigative reporting on this and research Megan. Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks so much for having me, Charlie. So Megan, tell us you had an amazing video that I watched and I wanted to have you on the program. So build it out for us. How was the American church really infiltrated by left wing COVID narratives in the midst of the last two years? Well, you know, we've done a couple of extensive reports on this and they were all kind of condensed in that video. And it really started at the beginning of COVID when the federal government dispatched Frances Collins to he was the head of the NIH, the national Institutes of health, Anthony Fauci's boss, and he was dispatched to convince evangelicals to stop being resistant. And he's been very clear and on record on tape saying, I was sent to deal with evangelical resistance to lockdowns to mask mandates to vaccine mandates. So he went into churches. He had a lot of really strong relationships with what you might call the elite evangelical class, some very well-known pastors like Tim Keller, Rick Warren, and stetzer at the Billy Graham center at Wheaton college, Russell Moore, who was then head of the public policy arm of the largest Protestant denomination in the U.S., which is the Southern Baptist convention. So just a really influential people. And he drew on those friendships to do interviews, podcasts, where he was presented as the strong Christian brother. To come on and give advice on how and why to submit to all of these COVID rules. And when he presented these things, he didn't do it just from a medical point of view. He, along with these pastors, presented it as this is how you show your love for Jesus. This is how you obey the gospel. And that was really something that they didn't just say, look, we're presenting a scientific point of view. Here is one scientist you might want to listen to. They didn't present any counter points of view from the scientific community, but that they really punched it up with if you want to love your neighbor. If you want to obey Christ, this is how you do it.
"daily wire" Discussed on The Andrew Klavan Show
"Got weird will president biden's call for vaccine mandate finally wake people up to the tyrannical leanings of this radical leftist administration does the texas heartbeat law. Mean we may see an end to roe v wade in the near future. Is it too soon to count on the gop. Winning big in twenty twenty two as the dem's continued to author disaster after disaster. None of that was funny joining me to discuss. All of this is the ben shapiro. The andrew claybin amount. Walsh and the michael knowles for tonight show. Daily wire members can ask questions in the chat. Box daily dot com. And we'll be answering them throughout the night please. Head over and subscribe. Joe biden announced last week that he's weaponized federal agency osha to force all companies with over one hundred employees either mandate vaccines or test their employees for cove. It at least once per week think goes without saying that this is one of the most radical overreaches of government power. Americans have seen in my lifetime and here at the daily wire we plan to fight it as we prepare for a battle of epic proportions. Were calling on you to help us fight. This obscene mandate if you will join us at daily wire dot com right now about becoming a member. You'll be giving us the resources that we need to take this all the way to the supreme court necessarily like if i say take it to the supreme court the light should flash over the daily wire dot com slash subscribe and use the promo code. Do not comply because won't be you'll get twenty five percent off. Americans have been putting up with this crap seating freedom after freedom to this authoritarian bureaucracy in the name of public health for long enough so please stand with us at the daily wire and perhaps most importantly help a stand for the rights of all american citizens. I mean it was a good so promotion there but this is like the big story probably in politics. maybe in my lifetime. Is this overreach by the president's been it's been building i mean even under trump the the response of our of our government to the pandemic has been so overwrought and has just at every administrative agencies to do it right. They use of administrative murat giving eviction. Moratoriums start under trump pets right right but but this is the third straight president. Who said i don't have the constitutional ability to do this and then i'm gonna do it right. We we had that with data. We had this with cdc and now we've had it with biden several times in the past couple of weeks. He's just accelerating the pace. The supreme court said you're not allowed to do that with the cdc and then he's like well. I agree and five seconds later. He turned around and tried to do it again. With cdc in the eviction moratorium here. He said a jillion times that you're not allowed to use the federal government clampdown vaccine eight but ben he been his patients began to wear them. Who's without the unbelievably tyrannical. About all of this is who the hell are you. Your patients with me is wearing thin. I pay your salary. I mean like the the he is my employee like this notion that his patients with me is worse than he's not my father. He doesn't get the he's not. My wife doesn't get to tell me that his patience is wearing thin with with the american people. And the thing about this again is. I've said this a thousand times. This has nothing to do with what the antibac- and this has to do with whether you're pro or anti liberty right because the question is not like i'm as pro vaccine as possible for a human to be. I've made this clear over and over and over. Been pro vaccine since before it's cool to be pro vaccines and the fact that this president of the united states is using in osha rule a vaguely worded osha delegation of power in order to cram down emergency temporary decree on one hundred million americans that. Let's let's be real about this. It really is not even about the employers. It's about the employees because he's going after us as a proxy for going out for our employees we refuse to if if if our employees will take the test and don't want to get vaccinated. We have to fire them well. Hey that's found. He's found a loophole around the fact that he doesn't have the power as president to force the citizenry to become vaccinate as he admitted but he may have the power to force us to force the citizens to be fascinated..
"daily wire" Discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show
"But these big businesses. They kept waiting and they kept waiting and fifteen days to slow. The spread turned into weeks. Turn into fifteen. Weeks turned into fifteen months. I mean here. We are more than a year and a half into this people have moved. People have changed totally reordered their lives how to big businesses. Now get their employees to go back. What can they point to. That has changed. How can they say no. Things are safer that they they missed every opportunity to say that you should incur some risk in life to say that something has happened that made the circumstances different and so now the only way that they can get people to come back to the office is to have the government say you can enforce these mandates and they can go. Oh these mandates are terrible. We expect you at work. On tuesday and be vaccinated. You know it's really interesting. That when i was in hollywood the age of the star ended. There's no hollywood star who opens a movie anymore. It used to be. The last one was probably will smith. But before that there was julia roberts who could open a bad movie. People went to see it. Because it was julia roberts move. That doesn't happen anymore. But still the star system is in place in hollywood and the reason. The star system is in place in hollywood. Is if you're an executive and you hire george clooney. None of whose movies make any money. Unless he's starring with matt damon and every other movie star but none of his movies make money but if you hire him. You won't be fired if the picture dies. Nobody's going to turn to you and say your the son of a gun who hired which clooney and that's why are our movie died. An artist comes in. And says i'm gonna do. I'm taking this risk it's beautiful. I've got this beautiful idea and the executives used to support this to some degree. I've got this great idea. No one's ever done this before you've never seen this morning you're gone. Wow jaws is. I mean that's that's amazing. And then they just copy it all over again. We're living in this period of success. We're living in the detail. End of of the american century with people stopped wanting to envision things because you plan with the house money. They didn't want to lose the money they made. Nobody wants to take the risk anymore. The risk is what it's all about first of all it's the only thing that makes life worth living that's the first thing and secondly it's like how you make a great country and instead we've got all these people who do not want the blame they don't wanna be the guy with the census is doing if call him deaths fantasy and all the stuff takes got it can be right or wrong. But it's nazis governing. He's in the media of course setup the narrative that the act of bravery is to shut everything down right when the real act of bravery is to say that human beings aren't allowed to be human beings. Yeah that's a true act of bravery because you don't get blamed if you if you shut everything down and then a bunch of people by get blamed for that then you did everything that you should begin cuomo but if you say listen people are gonna have to make decisions. They're gonna have to bear their own responsibility and i will take responsibility for allowing people to take responsibility for their own lives. The media will kill you. Spend the next several years talking about how he's run death santa's because not because he. You'll have joy reid on tv every night saying that to santa's wants people to die. Be that this literally the language he uses when she's not being battered by nicki minaj. Right how the deaths that. Ron wants cova to win. Because he is allowing people to live their lives and the inevitable result of this is dependent people waiting for some sort of kingly figures come and save them from already. This is what's so important to go back to michael's point if our leaders aren't gonna take risks and they're not gonna take the lead then it's important for us individuals to decide you know. Where are we going to draw the line. And even with things like mask. And i decided early on in this that. I'm not gonna wear the mask anywhere. Unless i'm asked by someone in the establishment in a position of authority to put it on and if they do then all decide whether i wanna put on her just leave but the instinct for a lot of us is to just is to you know. We'll just wear the mask because you don't wanna you don't you don't want to cause trouble you don't to be an awkward social situation or whatever it is. I think as individuals we have to decide. Well i'm just. We're just not going to go along with us. We're not gonna do it. We're not gonna play the game by the way you will notice you know. We're all in a lotta airports at all around the country. There is a federal mask requirement in all the airports and yet not. Everyone wears the masks in all the airports doesn't met wh- depending on what city you're in you cannot wear it you cannot comply and and there are enough people that no one is going to force you to do it and you just think. Well what if all americans did that. What if we if we all just stood up. I miss you know this does go to and this is where we can into the territory. I think so much of this is cost playing virtue. Rages cost playing it like the people who are who are wearing the masks at this point must know that everybody who that around has had the ability to either get the vaccine or decided not to get the vaccine break. This was a to me. The masking issue was much more complex and nuanced when there is no vaccine now that there's vaccine in every adult had the ability to get it then the issue all nuance is essentially remove. Because if you get covy. Because i'm vaccinated and i breathe in your general area and then you get copen you do not have a right to never be sick again in your what you did have a right to do. At least to a certain extent was to avoid deathly disease at least the case can be made the that that's an extra analogy and the same with can't polluted river. I can't sneeze my cove on you. When you're sixty five years old or eighty etienne living nursing home right.

"So it's just that the president is seizing power over workers and we're going to talk a little bit more about our response here at the daily wire too that the matt something you've been great on is the impact of this is having on school. Kids listen to a story today about schools in new york. They're open for the first time after more than a year of being shut down and not only. The kids have to wear masks inside kids who are at almost virtually not no but virtually no risk of of severe illness from covert But they have to eat lunch outside. They have to not face each other when they eat. They have to not talk unless it's an if it's raining then there's no lunch at all. No because they got lunch outside and During recess they can have physical activity but they can't come within six feet of each other so no kinds of activities that involve participation with other kids. They actually have outlawed any activity. That would cause there's exact phrasing in the in the handler and the guidelines. I want to say it's excessive breathing. So they don't want they don't want excessive breathing. There was there was someone on. Cnn was referring to There's a doctrine cnn couple of days ago. Talking about Fans at a football game in accuse them of breathing with gusto or something like that was what he said so we gotta make sure that may maybe for kids in school. We could have a life breathing with life real. Maybe maybe kids in school will. We'll say look. You can take ten thousand births and that's your limit. You go over that and it's your suspended. I dunno i think a lot of it. We're talking about schools or what the government is doing a lot of it is they want power and everything that we've talked about but i also think there's something simpler and it's it's a disease that we've seen in government for decades now. Which is this mentality that someone just has to do something. And it's this someone do something mentality. it's kind of like any time there's a tragedy or there's You know a high profile murder than we. We pass a law with that person's name on it. And here's that that person's law and it's always a law that was unnecessary because this stuff is already illegal. Wouldn't stop the crime wouldn't have stopped the crime. But just let's do something and so everywhere you go now. I've been traveling last couple weeks in in in a few different cities as a new york most recently which is just an absolute hell scape but everywhere you go there in new york now is just. They're there every every place you walk into. They're doing something in response to the virus. None of it makes any sense. There's no reason to be doing almost any of it but it's at least it's something and in one of the things that i mentioned in the schools in new york there's a video of what they call the covert buster team and. They're walking through the classrooms before kids. Show up spraying some kind of chemical into the air. Which which what is that supposed to do but nothing but it's some it's something anyway and makes us feel safer. You're exactly right. And when you talk to folks who are in favor of these sorts of measures and you say to them there's no data to back this framing we issue say data. They get angry. You for citing the data so if you point out that there is not a single study that shows that masking schoolchildren is effective tactic like not one and in fact the single largest study was a study. Done in georgia's ninety thousand students study and found that there were lower levels of transmission. When teachers wore masks ultra still transmitting it but that when school children up to the age of twelve or in school there is they actually buried the result they wouldn't they wouldn't print the result they filed worded is. What it's calling is what it's called. There is no difference between masking and unmasking for kids of that age group. When when you say the people say well then you really shouldn't mass kids. They'll say yes. But what if one of the kids has had get sick and they're not asked and you say well then the same exact thing as if they were masks. Because i just gave you the data we'll yes yes but but then they don't come masks on right but the data says that that makes no difference for children because children don't know how to wear masks because cotton mass damn bit of difference for kids and all the rest of it and they just they can't let go of it because again the idea. Is that if something bad should happen. I think this is really what it comes down for a lot of the decision makers and this has been the incentive structure all along. If something bad happens you need to be able to say to somebody else that you did the thing right. It doesn't matter if the thing was useful. I sacrifice the chicken right this morning. I sacrificed chicken and yet the kobe got the kid but i sacrificed the chicken because i sacrificed the chicken. And you can't tell me. I didn't try to propitiate the covert guys i did. I tried to do it. You're you're really speaking to something important. It is a kind of paganism. One hundred percent. We live in a new paganistic age and paganism is sort of like science but without controls right which is exactly what we're seeing they say. Trust the science but of course science has controls increasingly. science is also science with the what they mean when they say science is really just anecdotal data sets and we have. We have rituals engage in in the pagan cult of science. We've the secular fear that we put on our mouth now and You know speaking of new york. This does remind me. I was just in new york about a week and a half ago. We can do something to you know that we always have to do something. We've got to pass a lot. We can do something to you if you get on the subway now just so creepy signs everywhere where the mask pull it up over your nose. Not quite they come on the loudspeaker. Don't breathe don't do this. And so i decided you i'm going to do if i'm on a plane they're gonna make me wear the mask. I won't be able to fly okay. That's a prudential judgment on the subway. They're not gonna do anything. A lot of weird stuff happens on the subway okay. I spent a lot of years in new york. So i just wouldn't wear it and i wouldn't wear it on the on the trains and i wouldn't wear it on the subway and you know what people said to me..

"I mean kamla couldn't win a primary. She certainly isn't gonna win. And you know the idea that both the president and the vice president would not seek a second term against republican. I don't know if you've ever seen that i. We don't know the future. But i think that's going to happen and i think it's very hard to know. It really is impossible to know what's gonna happen with biden because he may just be. It makes it possible to pop. Do you believe the biden administration will pay a ransom for remaining americans who are left in afghanistan before using military force. Ver- shirt one. Yeah exactly they're gonna be pallets of cash that are shipped over there. There were never gonna see. They're already probably one hundred percent by the way that actually as an impeachable offense that actually if we start shipping money over there without any sort of congressional approval to a terrorist group. But matt's actually isn't it who's going to do right but i mean just a legal question by the way to the legal question. The real answer is it doesn't matter because impeachment is right doesn't really matter. But what are the chances that china decides. It's time to go after. Taiwan mean we we basically all under one hundred percent. And i. And if i if i were china i'd certainly do it in the next three years because we don't know what's coming now by the way who exactly is going to oppose them to speak of like the the west and its restrictions on freedom. It makes more sense to have that conversation. Lessen the in the guys the taliban than it does with regard to china considering chinese social credit system considering how australia's currently walking and citizens down like like what did you see the video from nine news. No and it was like i was just waiting. There was the guy who's coming down the elevator. And the anchors like his name is there's a waiting for them to release on montage. I the only person who got the reference a fair four-fifths he's running for the river and you've got the hound him because he's don't believe it is the fall of the west right now and it is the chinese moment. I mean. you wrote your book. The authoritarian moment. And really what you mean in some ways is that this is the chinese moment there have been for the last twenty five years. There've been two models that were sort of dominant. There's the western model basically the american model now in europe it. It's further left and it has more parliamentary system and it has you know bigger social skills area. It's essentially the postwar american order. And what we're seeing it to some degree even domestically which is very concerning. Is that in some ways. Both left and right are looking at china now and saying you know. The system of of strong authoritarian regimes with liberal economics may be scalable in a way is that this happened before ruled. Were to to you know. There are plenty of people in america who were going like us hitlerism. Such a bad point. Do you believe that. This is a combination of idiocy incompetence or intentional in other words are they trying to inflame the american populace and thereby increasing military operations overseas. I think it's. I think it's a really. I've heard the the conspiracy. If you wanna call it that the conspiracy theory that this is a purposeful attempt to debilitate us and demoralize us. I just don't think that's smart to be honest with you. More and he always was even before acts tinfoil hat on though. If i could stand up for the question. The to ben's point The the people do not control foreign policy or at least have not in in many years many decades and we know that the bureaucracy in the foreign policy establishment did not want to pull out of afghanistan and we know that joe biden is not running the show and so there is the question. I want to ascribe to malice. That which is explained by stupidity and incompetence and there was a lot of that. We left a lot of behind ballroom. We left a lot of stuff behind in the country. Seventy five thousand vehicles over two hundred aircraft six hundred thousand firearms were. i mean. we're missing an army's worth of stuff that that is either historic incompetence or or there were competing we're missing. We're missing an option though which is indifference. I think i think part of it. The problem is the people that run our country. Don't really care that much about americans or or or our country at all. So i think there's also get biden's always been committed to his peculiarly stupid idea of the moment right took this country and we sliced it in three. You're like well. There are no natural resources. I don't care man come on man and his instead here. Too right did you. Didn't his press conference today where he's like. All my generals agreed on this. He kept saying this over and over right on my generals all the higher ups in the military right which actually extends like one person has to say. I didn't read by. The way is not true. We have many many stories of all his is going. You can't pull out this way and he's like we're doing it and then he's like but they also agreed that we should not defend ballrooms like oh you mean once you said we could have two troops and put the troops in one place they said. Let's do kabul instead of bog rem. Wow big agreement there. But i do think we we can talk about on the show. 'cause we gotta go home this ridiculous but but i do think that there is a case to be made that our intelligence services are infiltrated by our enemies. I guess if there was a case of course of course yeah and the thing we talk about the findings. I'm not committing suicide. If i die mcafee ladder you did. Just give up the whole plot. We talk about the big things. Humvees armored vehicles airplanes and helicopters is sixteen thousand pairs of night-vision goggles. But i'm the most worried about our special operators have ruled afghanistan truly for the last twenty years. They're the they're the most lethal fighting men that have ever existed in all of human history and their superpower is that they can see darkness. Yeah that's their superpower and we just gave the enemy the superpower. The good news is where they gonna buy batteries. That's all the time.

"And if the taliban takeover that's it we'll fight with you today in twenty years we're going that's not we and that's not how you promise in foreign policy. No-one promises that way in foreign policy. Because nobody does it so we promised would be there forever. No we promise that they were going to have a particular kind of life. This is what happens. Which would entail us to be there forever. Weren't not necessarily or we fly over here or maybe there's the possibility that if we withdraw more orderly fashion and don't completely collapse air force from within the afghan government and military have any obligation of its own to its own citizens of course they had an obligation of the of the of and by the way undertook that obligation to the tune of fifty thousand dead over the course of the last six years and sixty seven thousand bed in the twenty years. We've and that's and that's that's an awful lot of human beings awful up but that's also it's more american troops than we've lost all what is combined since vietnam but that's the way the ratio should be at least i mean they're. They are defending their own country. They ridicule lion's share of the casualties. So i agree with the idea that we're supposed to admire the afghan military for being the ones to take the brunt of the casualties of course your country who else is gonna do. We analyzed but my question. Is i just i suppose i just don't understand the tremendous urgency. That was felt by so many people. We must get this tiny barebones force out of afghanistan forthwith and consequences are world historical and they are okay when you turn over thirty eight million people. So the taliban welcome in all the groups give china and open running field give russia in open running field and then that's create the moral hazard of an this does make a difference in the world when our allies look at us and they and we and yes. This goes back to the political leadership point. Maybe should never talk in moral terms. But i do think that it was kind of a good thing that we stopped mass rape in afghanistan so if george w bush said in a couple of speeches we stopped terrorism and by the way we also stopped the mass rape of twelve year old grows in afghanistan. That's the end of the world. But if people in the other way on the rape of boys though i mean that's arm i mean so he should have said that too and he should have moved on that. Okay like we can all agree. I'm not in favor of the voice. I think we're all on the same page on this one. But there is the painting of of the afghan allies. And i'm very grateful for the allies. Who helped us. But there's the painting of them as these pure pure as the driven. Snow charitable people. Who didn't but what matters is they committed some of the atrocities that we're all focused. They earned the housing but south koreans did to during that forty two years that we occupied south korea to the southbound shore and stuff like that that's the nature of foreign policy. The question is is it more and more. What was the united states presence. Did we make afghanistan in the period of dominance better. Then it happened under the taliban sure. But but if we're making if we're now having the moral discussion that. I think it's important to remember that when we went in there the people who helped us in afghanistan. I don't think they did so on the suggestion that we were gonna stay there forever and climate as isn't imperial territory. That was not the argument we made when we went. And i don't. I'm sorry who claimed it as an imperial tariff. I think we were saying now. We should have stayed there for many many more years. You'll tehran germany's working. What would you say. China tried to build up. Some other country tried to build one military base in our country. We would say you're trying to claim us as your own right. I just just to get back to. This isn't the same thing if we do that. Another country we ask more appointee. Ben brought up. Transaction in foreign policy is decided by transaction and. i just think that it's worth remembering. I'm grateful for the support of our afghan allies. They were doing so because they had an interest. And i don't. I actually don't believe that. They thought the united states was going to stay there forever. I don't think we said we were going there for. I think we thought we were the bad thing. When you look at america's victories in the last century any place where we fought and won we still have troops who before nineteen seventy anywhere. Nobody i just. I don't any place that we bought him one. We trips every place that we fought and suffered humiliating defeat. We don't still. I can if i can just inject one more time. My morbidly. A tragic life here One thing we should also keep in mind that the thing that we're we're actually noticing is that democracy is very bad system for running an empire and the reason is the best system for running. An empire is because one day. You've got george. W bush running the place and the next day. You've got joe biden or obama running. The place don't agree and they pull out our troops and they put our troops back in. Our promises are broken and our promises are broken for democratic reasons because we voted for somebody. Who's going to break the promise of the last guy. We voted for that. This is one of the reasons that as great as free nations become strong and free nations become strong they become empires and they stopped being free nations and this is one of the prices. I believe we're gonna have to pay. There's a reason. The roman republic fell is reason this republican fall. And i think that we have to understand that what you guys are talking about. Keeping your promises is going to be a drain on the democratic process. I'm also curious what or policy has been..

That never happened. And i'm not saying that it was harmonious and everything was great. There are a lot of problems but it wasn't an issue we just as kids with what makes me so angry because having experienced i know that if you kinda leave kids to their own devices and you put them in an environment together Yeah they're gonna ask questions sometimes awkward questions about their differences and that sort of thing but they're not gonna make they're not gonna. They're not going to see any great deep significance in that they're just gonna see each other as kids and they're going to play on the playground You have to make it an issue. You have to go to these kids and say oh you see that person over there. They look different from you. That difference is important and significant and here are some feelings. You should have about those differences. And that's what we're doing to kids now. And it just infuriates say also running parallel to this argument though to answer the question other ways and i i made the joke. Russia will that moment. I but i'm being serious because we're moving with maritime pursue. This goes back to our earlier discussion about like. You're you're winning by not even competing right winning in your winning in your heart. This is this is now becoming the american perspective. So how do you expect. America to have a moment in which we win and have something trumping like against russia against the soviet union forever being up to replicate that moment when we don't even understand fundamentally what winning it. We're starting at the concept of winning is wrong. That's what's going on in america right now. So no unless we reverse reversed titanic way from the iceberg. I don't see how we had that at least on our lifetimes until we we're gonna we're gonna need to have as michael says an existential threat. Normally you'd be perfectly obvious with that. Existential threat is which is the rising tide of china. China is an existential threat to the future of the united states next essential threat to the future of the world. They're communist authoritarian power. That is on the move. They have made radical moves against hong mid radical moves in south china sea.

"Those laws have passed in a lot of these states but second of all. I just don't think that the democrats donald trump is on the ballot. He's a great turnout machine for everybody and him not being on the ballot is is for congressional candidates virtually outperformed herm. I mean pretty much. Every republican congressional candidate including senatorial seats outperform trump in the last election cycle and which is why republicans outperformed in congress with trump not on the ballot in two thousand twenty two. I think that republicans are they've taken away the biggest democratic talking point. That's the reason why pelosi keeps saying from january. Sixth over and over and over again. She wants that report to commit next year. She wants to claim that all the republicans were complicit in that. But guess what. Americans are not into this. They're not into this.

I figured out by the way. That's it there was no other reason because they actually thought much better than they were shocked in. The black community didn't respond to her because they were very aware of her record as a prosecutor and they just did they were not about comma harris. She's also fundamentally. She has.

And i certainly was It's just there's this sense of gratitude for the country that's been lost and that's that's what that's a lot of patriotism really is it's it's a. It's being grateful for the west by our country. And i think we got a whole generation of people multiple generations that haven't been raised with that. You don't have an american pastime anymore right so the because we don't have an idea of what americans are uniting around how this is a very interesting thing that but i've been a little under the weather not with kobe. Whatever you're going to catch from his far far worse. But but i went home from work early yesterday because i was taking some prescriptions and just needed some rest and as i was laying in bed i watched an episode. The pilot episode of a show from the nineties called star trek deep space nine. And i'm a big trekkie of watched every episode of every star trek series except deep space nine and the the the real hardcore trekkie. Say it's the best. I just never got into it and i was laying there second. I thought well. I'm going to watch it. Download this episode. I'm watching it. It's famous for being the first star trek. That had a black lead black commanding officer. Because i hadn't prepared to talk about. I don't know the actress name off the top of my head But the the characters name is is cisco and this was a major moment in the nineties. Star trek was a major franchise connection racial major show and they gave us captain janeway. Who is the first female captain. That made big news And just before that they gave us commander sisko who was the first black lead. And i was watching the show i was so struck by how disingenuous this racial moment is that we live in right now because here you had this this actor playing a role and the role was a twenty fourth century. Starfleet commanding officer right. And we know if you've ever watched the next generation in particular jerry utopian and in the future humans were a little bit more collectivist. And we're a little bit more evolved than we have all these common thoughts about what it means to be a person what it means to be a cinch shannon and this after gives a performance and which essentially the role that playing would not have been dramatically. Different had been played by a white actor. And in fact there's a scene where he's on the hollow deck where you can make all your fantasies come true. He's on the holiday with his son and they're playing a game of baseball and he's having to explain to this this non-core portrayal alien life form. Who doesn't understand the physical universe or time. He's trying to explain to them. What memories are and what imagination and how. We linear corp. Beings can move ourselves out of this moment and into moments. Don't even exist our past aspirations for our future this game of baseball that he plays with his son. And the because it's on the holodeck it's like a. It's like a nineteen thirties. Game of baseball. You know it's it's it's a different world even from now any part of speeches about how this is. This is the great pastime. You this is one of our our great endearing pastimes and how illogical it is in its way but what we're really doing when we engage in sport is we're facing as linear beings were facing an almost unlimited number of possibilities that don't become a predictable reality until you've already done them. You can't know what's going to happen anyway all of this to save this very aspirational speech about essentially about humanity from a western point of view. I mean he was he was declaring. What's great about america. Although they certainly didn't say americans in the twentieth century and a white actor could've played the role in hispanic after could've played. The role race was.

"Right. Simone biles oh stoorikhel racism. There's no blocking i quit. It's like so what is what. What is the actual goal is i just. I don't know where we're going. And maybe that is the point. It's just k- radical kind of objectivism. Because this is actually what ties in the math and the physical bodies and everything. It's this full on assault on standards. Where when the friend who's on the olympic team says well we're winners in our hearts. I think that's great but we want you to be winners in reality. Tv if you now say that there is a standard of physical excellence or right or wrong repulsive good or bad then. Math is racist and victoria. Secret is race at now. you're seeing just total inversion where that which is sort of false in wrong and ugly. That's exalted is the highest quote winners in our heart that someone saying this member of the olympic team. Yeah she tweeted out. Yeah i think earlier women earlier this week on on My podcast. I was talking about. How one that we. We have an empathy crisis in this country but the crisis isn't lack of empathy. It's that we have two very different versions of what empathy constitutes on the one hand. You have people generally on the right. Who believe that. What empathy is understanding that other people are individual human beings with capacity to reason and come to conclusions and so if they come to a conclusion that is different from your own. You still have to respect the fact. They came to a conclusion different from your own but as a reasonable person you can assess whether that conclusion is right or wrong and you can hold them to particular standard. So you understand. The other person is a person but they're still held to that particular standards. It's not unsympathetic to hold person to the standard session. More pathetic expect them to be rational human being and then. There's the standard of the left which that empathy means that. Whatever the subjective feeling that somebody has inside all of society is supposed to conform to that of policies supposed to conform to that and that creates a really asymmetrical politics. Because if you're on the left and you can flake policy with empathy and what this means that if you oppose my policy you are. Non empathetic by definition are bad person by definition whereas people on the right. We understand that policy is completely not connected with empathy right. It has nothing to do with empathy in the sense that the left is talking about it and so you can disagree on policy and still be an empathetic person. The left just doesn't accept that. I think that this goes to something you. You're saying sort of glib funny way. But there is a feminine component of this that we live in a society now that is taken everything feminine good and bad and elevated it to virtue and everything. that's masculine good and bad and denigrated to sent and so the the effect of this is that you have negative femininity being treated good and positive masculinity being treated as bad. It's it is. I'm not saying that that a woman's rights should be limited in any way. I'm only. I'm saying something descriptive here. Not proscriptive to to borrow from ben. It is a simple fact that for the vast majority of human history women have been primarily concerned with building the home and building. The home requires huge amounts of empathy. Because you're working with the most flawed people children and you're helping to rear them and make adults out of them. Men historically have been not primarily concerned with building the home. They'd been concerned with building the home for the home. Which is the society. And for that reason the in societies we see the best and worst of masculine virtue horrible mass masculinity At its worst is very barbarian. You see You see this in pre civilizational societies. You see it in certain third world societies middle eastern societies but there are positive aspects of masculinity which were cultivated largely in western society imperfectly. But over time where you have concepts like justice not social justice but justice justice is not empathetic. You don't wanna raise your kids justice. I you have to raise your kids empathy. I but you have to order your society justice. I and we're at this place. Now where the Instead of having a natural tension between those two things we've just completely eliminated one of them is evil and so it is. It is one primarily knowledgeable yes acknowledgement of our biological predispositions. And that's the irony and that's why laugh at this stuff because every time you see it a woman is it is simone biles and you look at them and you just go. You are acknowledging that women don't are not the same under pressure as met and it's funny but it's it's it is what it is. I i laugh at it. And i say okay. You know. i'm happy what you want to go home. I don't mind. I'm i'm with you. I think it's totally fine acceptable. They are under a lot of pressure. That should there's no requirement for them to perform. But i do have. I think it's very annoying when afterwards they come to us and it's like well. This person is a hero anyways. I one in our we won in our hearts said no melting team ever. This also goes back to what michael sain about. The these bodies. I would actually go further than what you're saying because i think the female body is at the center of all human relationship. It rained the attraction to the female body like everybody. I only watch women's sports for the skimpy outfits. Believe i believe like everyone. Under the i believe they should be able to choose not to wear those skimpy outfits while they're doing the thing that i won't be watching what's the truth and this action that we feel to women's bodies part of our humanity. We're embodied creatures. Were here to reply actually actually said this on twitter this week someone was angry about some man object defying some woman. And i said you know the fact that men find women attractive is not bad. It's not our the promulgation of our entire species depends on men. finding women. Attractive that to your point that is baked in to who. We are biologically. I'm not suggesting that we are only the some of our biology. I'm not suggesting that every masculine trait is positive. Nor am i suggesting every feminine trait is negative. But i am saying that unless we can have a conversation about how you balance those things in a modern world. You're only going to end up. With the worse things presenting ultimately arrived by all us. it's going to be negative masculinity that prevails because as the society as good men are weakened. Bad men are going to fill that vacuum. I watch the wnba. Because i wanna see if one of them can dunk for the first time. I have to do an ad and there's no way to segue who said i'm just going to go right into it. How do you choose which internet service provider you use. The sad thing is most of us have very little choice. Because isp's operate basically as monopolies in the regions they serve and then they used that monopoly power away. Everyone uses every monopoly power across history to take advantage of customers minnea-.

"You can get your questions into the chat box right now for our cuna later on tonight. Wow showed we have redone. The title God king is just an honorific. They give you if you make it through all the copy anyone can be god king. I have to say. That was one of the bravest things i've ever seen in my life. Thank you very much for recognizing my courage and that. I need to take care of myself. It's just the the heroism authenticity us. I was blown away by it. Kinzo levels of authenticity of course We should talk about this story of simone biles actually one of the great american athletes of the great gymnasts of all time. Perhaps the greatest gymnast of all time Walking off of her team challenge at the olympics. Because she had the ads. And what do we do. We make of a culture in which such a thing is possible. I think i think it's important for everyone to understand here. And i speak for most people in the room. At least myself. I wouldn't care. i'll just make myself. I wouldn't if she just walked off and quit and then apologized afterwards and said. Hey i really just felt like i couldn't do it. And then everyone reacted with appropriate disappointment. And we all said. Oh that's too bad then. I wouldn't be talking about at all. I wouldn't care. I would just say well. Yeah people quit. I i understand what people quit. It's relatable it's understandable. We all quit things when they're hard. The problem is when the media tells us that we have to celebrate this thing now. We take cowardice. And i'm not saying that she's nothing but a coward but this was a cowardly act. It was a difficult thing she didn't want to do. She decided not to do it. That's that's you know that's something we've all. We've all done that before when you tell us. We have to come on the show when you tell us it that is now i think the new yorker called the new york times. Call that radical courage. That's when it becomes absurd. There's also a. There's also a double standard here too because we know you cannot imagine. Tom brady in the middle of the play. Offs third quarter. They're down by a couple of scores and he walks off. The field goes to the sideline and says the head coach. And i. i'm just not in the right space right now and you need to sit down and collect my thoughts. It would never happen. And if it did happen I don't think there'd be anyone's celebrating his courage for doing. Did you see what what her teammates said. So she came out and get because one of the arguments was well. Sloan byles of women. Who i had never heard of until last night by the way. That's how the i i guess i just. I don't care about the olympics to your point. I wouldn't be talking about it except for this reaction. And they said we'll simone biles let her teammates down and then the team came out and said this is wonderful. We support her. We don't oh you a gold medal. This is just about us and so it's true that the athletes don't owe us a gold medal but they do owe us trying. They do os competing. Because it's not actually about simone biles. I mean she's a i i take it to be. She's a wonderful athlete. It is somewhat about the team..

"A complete misread. I promise you that all of the sites that you just mentioned have bigger traffic than we'd overall other conservative outlets like the blaze breitbart news in the western journal that published aggregated and opinion content aimed at invoking. Outrage have also generally been more successful at generating engagement than legacy news outlets over the past year. This excessive those allies on facebook may also undermined conservatives off repeated claims that social media networks have an anti conservative bias. Okay well i can show you exactly when and where the get turned off on her traffic because we watch it every single day so yet no tracking the amount of engagement. A poster outlets on facebook is not the same thing as tracking the number of people. The contents actually reaches through the platform in october. Facebook released data showing that the sort of conservative. Click bait the performs well. Engagement metrics was not actually being seen by as many people as articles from the more mainstream news outlets. Okay so in other words there now. Complaining that people click on our headlines. But don't read through the stories. They're basically now admitting that they still more traffic than we do. But we're still bad 'cause we exist. The daily wire is clearly successful. This is well thanks. We appreciate it. The company is growing and profitable according to ceo. Jeremy boring who told axios earlier this year. The company plans to expand more intense retainment and further build out. The daily wears smartphone app. Well other publications have seen their engagement numbers for facebook fall off this year. The daily wire has stayed fairly constant according to npr's analysis. I'm depressed by it. But i'm not surprised said settle. This has everything to do with the psychology of news consumers and the broader issues with polarization in american culture. See again the problem is polarization is caused by us. Existing this this article we exist daily wear exist people read it polarization. Maybe it's polarizing that you wanna shut us down. Maybe that's the polarizing aspect of american politics. These days again. For the one thousand time i have not called for npr's informational information distribution be shutdown. I haven't done so with regard to other media from noticing a lot of people from these media outlets won't me shutdown weird how that works the articles. The daily wear publishes don't normally include falsehoods and the site says it's committed to truthful. Accurate unethical reporting but as settle explains by only covering specific stories that bolstered the conservative agenda like negative stories about socialist countries and polarizing stories about race and sexuality issues and only including certain facts. Readers still come away from the daily wears content with the impression republican politicians can do little wrong and cancelled. Culture is among the nation's great threats so in other words again is npr. Saying you're conservative. So you're bad. They admit that we are not saying anything false. They're just angry that we're conservative by the way. The new york times only covers specific stories. That bolster their narrative. They only tell you specific fats. That bolster their narrative in the same way. We do the differences. Were honest and their wires. They'll tell you that objective and will were conservative. Get over it in. Npr review of stories on the daily wire about the cove in nineteen pandemic over the past few months found numerous stories about potential side effects from colvin but none portray scientifically demonstrated efficacy of the vaccine. Or it's focused explicitly on the hesitancy that slowed the us rollout. I'm wait hold up a second. You're saying that we are anti vacs. Are you insane are you. Crazy was into a single moment of this show he. The site routinely talks about the efficacy of the vaccines. We do this all the time. The offense headlines seemed like a conglomeration of conservative buzzwords. This is reporting from. Npr your taxpayer. Funded entity cnn medical experts urges. We must make life hard for unvaccinated test. Twice-weekly there's nothing false. About that headline. They tend not provide context for the information that providing said settle. If you've stripped away enough context any piece of truth can become a piece of misinformation there. It is right there right. Everything is misinformation. Because we don't like how you are telling it it's true. But we don't like it it's misinformation this is a master masterclass in the kind of suppression the left wishes to use in social media to shut down your ability to access. Information is authoritarian bull pushed by your taxpayer dollars. Apparently it's just incredible so we're bad we should. We should be shut out. is he. In the years since he left breitbart news. Shapiro has carved out a rare niche within the conservative media. World graduate of harvard law school taps into many of the same themes that former president donald trump played into while so disagreeing with trump a fetus manage without becoming a target of the former presidents. Ir shapiro has publicly. Denounced the outright and other people in trump's orbit like steve as well as the conspiracy theory trump is the rightful winner of the two thousand twenty election. But in the same column. I wrote after the violence on january six quote last week. The capital was breached by a group of fringe trump supporters. Who had bought into a series of is but the same com. He quickly turned his attention back. Democrats and their support of the nationwide black lives matter protest last year which many conservatives falsely thoughts supreme broadly as riots. He's been widely condemned for anti lgbt comments. Oh my god wow so again. I'm conservative means i'm bad. He's he's he's just terrible and then they bunch of people like me incredible really well done here so basically the idea here is we should not just because we're good at our jobs. That's the entire article article is from. Npr daily should not exist and we're misinformation because they disagree then they're coming for your information coming.

"This is the point that everybody seems to be missing. He couldn't make that defense because on a principle level he cannot argue for standards based on merit because if he makes an argument on standards based on merit he undercut his entire agenda. Try so this is how it club that is not officially a white transforms into a quote all white club. Even though all white clubs are illegal in the united states. So i agree. I don't think white club should be illegal in the united states. But they are now so i think the civil rights act actually. Has i agree with you. I also i've been a long time. Proponents of freedom of association right was ended in the private sphere by the civil rights. Act of nineteen sixty four. And i think that's a problem. But i want to know who the star i want you to like. Want you to go to an all. So that i can go not right now. There's an. I don't want to have to deal with this human but this is such a club against the right. Do you remember. They did this to rand. Paul and they often to people who are who make arguments for free. Association often on libertarian. Great you just make an unplanned constitutional grounds but on libertarian grounds. And so you get perfectly amiable con. a libertarian. Like rand paul. And during his first ride amendment the senate remember they said. Well senator paul. We're going to ignore what you're talking about right now on obamacare or anything else would you have voted for the civil rights act and you know if you if you say no or if you say. I have certain problems with this. Your career is dead politically and yet and yet the the arguments that goldwater made it the time that kept him out of the president and yeah. We're quite certainly everything we're dealing with can really be traced back. This is the case that christopher called will make entitlement right and then he's exactly right about it. I mean the fact is that you could say in nineteen sixty four unbalanced. It is it. It's important to get rid of state sponsored discrimination. That is a temporary measure. I will vote to curtail freedom of association and in fact many of the proponents of the civil rights. Bill suggested that this is going to be temporary in fact hubert humphrey right one of the great proponents of the civil rights. Bill suggested that it was never gonna go as far as it has been taken sort in terms of legal precedent but if you but even point out that there are flaws in the civil rights. Bill now is to is to suggest that that you are indeed. The game left likes to play right now. Is that if you are in favor of a right and the right can be misused. This means you're in favor of the misuse of the right right which is just the greatest one nonsense sophistry. As long as we're in the part of the show that it's going to be clipped up by media matters shipped out to make us on more famous if juneteenth is a national holiday. Why isn't election day a national holiday and wouldn't allow us to finally say that we have ended suppression if it were will. Juneteenth is a national holiday. Not because of the merits of juneteenth. I think a people pointed out in galveston texas. They said we've known about juneteenth along time that's true was local tradition and in very small parts of the united states. The reason that juneteenth is a holiday is because it is being portrayed as a new national independence. the title of the bill was the juneteenth national independence day act and it's being promoted by people who are fans of critical race theory who are fans of sixteen nineteen project. It is a holiday. That is being used to push resentment. That's why the the emoji on twitter for juneteenth with the read the fist ride. What is the symbol of communism of black nationalism. Had some some other pretty pretty good trick because first of all trump supported making juneteenth the national holiday and it is You know it's a good holiday. It's just. It's just galling that it should be put forward by the people who haven't let black children go to school for a year and a half and the people who essentially destroyed the black family through their pull. This is this was this is the problem is people say well. In theory juneteenth could be a good holiday essay. Sure ed i guess if it were a holiday to acknowledge the patient proclamation. It just simply in practice is not as part of this broader left. You've actually have you actually can't have a holiday to celebrate the emancipation proclamation and the thirteenth amendment because that would acknowledge that some point in the history by people in america did something. Good as the person on the panel. Probably who would have voted for juneteenth thought juneteenth. A national holiday. No probably loosely. I i really have no problem at all. With in fact. I like the idea of a national holiday celebrating. The greatness of a country that ended slavery death of hundreds of thousands of jobs citizens right. I mean i think we all agree with that idea. The the the fact that it was immediate the left was they had such buyer's remorse over juneteenth. If you watched the media they got angry that the republicans who voted virginians where there were mad about it. They're like well. Yes but there's so much more to do. Juneteenth is just a reminder of how much more there is to do it says because you won't teach crt right and it's like well. No juneteenth reminder. Of how amazing america is that we sacrifice several hundred thousand of our own people to end an evil institution. But i will say that to michael's point that is what a good juneteenth holiday would have been. That's not actually what we had the same arguments over. mlk day okay. Back in the eighties. These arguments poet the mlk new national independence. Okay so yes how. Many people have actually read the bill. No one is going to call it. The new national independence day except for people are like wild radicals. Everybody else are just going to say. It's juneteenth i have the day off. Don't you in the same way that and now what you're going to get is the same battled that the left has been losing over. Mlk for while here right where they try to read con mlk wherever they say well. This is their new. Mlk is going to be canceled. I i agree with that. Because they've decided that martin that the original iteration malcolm x. Was actually correct and that is wrong but the but the original arguments over. Mlk day were it. It's going to promote radicalism. It's all about and then what did it become. it just became a simple tribute to the basic proposition. In the i have a dream speech. But i mean that's really what it became and that's what school children learn and you know what it's pretty damn. Good thing that schoolchildren learned that since that is now the chief the chief weapon being used against critical race theory. Yeah right so. I think juneteenth is gonna come out the same way. I think what's going to end up happening. He's i think we're going to win the critical race theory fight. Which is a revision of what juneteenth actually is juneteenth design of american progress. It is the frederick douglass fulfilment of the independence day. Pledge frederick douglass said independence. Day doesn't apply to black people..

"Michael i use on energy. What do you wanna talk i. I'm glad that we focused on a little bit of hope. Because i do feel you know as as you point out this line. My priest father. George shutler as differential in the scottish optimistic scottish pessimist. Scottish optimists says he's got a pessimist rather says thanks. Can't get any worse. Scottish optima says oh yes they can and we do it all the time and i think there actually is great cause for hope one of my fears for twenty twenty two and twenty twenty four. I think we're we could easily retake the house. And i think that we could do well in twenty twenty four if the elections are fair. I know we're not allowed to make any comments. You know in the big tackle shut us down. But i'm just pointing. There's always fraud in elections every at both sides. You're always trying to game. The system and democrats took a huge advantage by pushing widespread mail in voting in some places in contravention of state constitutions by pushing ballot harvesting by pushing motor-voter laws. They've been doing this for decades right. This is nothing really new. And i was really pleased to see that that the republicans on capitol hill. Yeah have shut down the biggest election power. Grab that we've seen from democrats possibly ever s one h one. The corrupt politicians act. They had to should've korkut. Here's how i'm very down on the republican party in our elected officials you. During the first two years of the trump administration we controlled the white house and both chambers of congress republicans who controlled the governorship and both chambers of the state legislature in texas for nineteen years uninterrupted. And what do we do when we have power. Virtually nothing and everyone always tell you why. Well there was this mitigating circumstance. You you know we needed one more vote or we needed one more. This one more that at a certain point that you have to realize oh no. They do exactly what they want to do. They don't want to do anything that changes the fundamental argument in the country so example the most unifying issue for republicans is the abortion issues. The most important social issue Certainly of the last half century if the right if our politicians actually act decisively against abortion. And there's no reason to vote for them anymore. I honestly think they think this way these of course they stood up and did the right thing were the corrupt politicians actors concerned because they personally have something to lose if they lead the democrats completely remake elections in the country. They might lose their power to tell us. They're going to do a bunch of things that they'll never ever ever die the way. Notice this issue that you're talking about abortion. This is the one issue that basically all the conservatives can agree on notice. And we've we've actually made progress on abortion. We've at least held. The line noticed that that is basically the one issue that conservatives argue from the standpoint of justice right so many other issues. We argue from this kind of utilitarian argument from efficiency. Well you go work around the edges and you increase efficiency but abortion is just. This is wrong and we're going to stand against it and i'm noticing especially those parents up to the school board. They're making arguments. This is wrong. This is right and we're going to stand for what because because they're humans than our politicians pundits their actual people who want their children to be taught moral things. And you're you're absolutely right about this. And the other thing that i will say because what you just said i could not agree with more except that i do believe we are asking republicans to do something that goes against the nature of politicians. Were asking him to have less power. And that's that means that they're paddling upstream while the left is writing the rapid sounds. And i think that is a difficult job. So here's a great question from daily wire dot com subscriber. At what point do we stop pointing out the left crecy. They couldn't care less and the sheep will acknowledge the crecy anyway. Are we doing the wrong thing to point out that they're hypocrites. I think it's important because there are group of people in the middle who are under the fundamental assumption that the left is moral and the right is immoral. Because that's the line that the left is consistently pushing so when you point out their hypocrisy you're basically saying no you you don't hold any sort of moral high ground particularly on these principles that yourself do not whole but the general critique which is that the ratings to stop whining about the left being hypocritical and instead needs to just fight the left on its own terms. I think that there is certainly some some truth to that. I think that can go too far. And i'm afraid of that. Because i think that there's a push on the right right now to subvert our own fundamental principles with regard to for example liberalism on on things like free speech in order to quote unquote. Fight the left and that does not mean that there aren't things that we can do. There are one hundred percent things that we can do. But i think that very often the so on the positive side. The critique of hypocrisy suggests that you shouldn't try to shame people who can't be shamed which i agree with the on the other side. It seems to me that very often people who wanna critique the right for pointing out hypocrisy really wants to subvert the fundamental principle which that there should be an evenly held standard across both right and left instead. They say okay well. Fluffed is going to be hypocrites about things then we should do. We might as well just club them in the face using equally deplorable tactics. That i have the problem with the hypocrisy argument. That was a too often accepts. The values of the left circle the left. Says you know we have strong women and we said well. Hillary just married into power and we are women are stronger and you think well maybe the answer is the strength is not the only virtual may strength as a male virtue in there are other caitlyn general ripe. But they would say they'll be using the argument. They're constantly saying well. You know when you critique anybody whose transgender because you're transphobic and then they would critique it'll be like well now is the trans transform or the real the real trance when the supreme court cases came out and Eighty conybeare. it voted to not take this case on obamacare. A third attempt to overturn obamacare. And the court didn't want to take it and there were some conservatives who came out and said haha oh the left is going to be so embarrassed. 'cause they said right that was going to be the vote against obamacare. How we showed them take that lives. And if we keep owning the lives by holding obamacare. we're not gonna make conservative movement left. However i will say that senator whitehouse who represents many not many but several liberals what mino bleep belongs to a an all white club. The guy's a thug to begin with these been committing thuggery against the supreme court trying to intimidate them into giving leftist.

Write the check coca-cola. would you take about. What kind of girl do you think? I am but we've established. What kind of girl you are the price of course that's all of some well. That's right. That's all of this. The jokes funny because we can all relate to it. I am willing to compromise of course I'm not but there is a there is a degree of compromise at which you you've you have actually fundamentally changed the nature of the thing right neither despite you know we we agree on this and the funny thing about trump. You thought there's a five percent percent chance that it would be a mistake catastrophically bad. I thought that there was a five percents that he'd be catastrophically bad too but only a five percent yes. That's not what kept me for voting for him. What kept me from voting for him is that I thought that there was a seventy five percent chance that he would be a a creature of the left not of the right and that he would fundamentally gut the actual philosophical immoral core of our movement in such two way that when he was gone. I wasn't sure what we were fighting for anymore. I wasn't that wrong like you. The five percent worse case scenario thing didn't happen the the seventy five percent thing half of it. I was wrong about which is I thought he'd give us like his sister to be a Supreme Court justice. I thought the guy just has been a Democrat his whole life and he's GonNa glad that he is not governed as a democrat. They haven't let them get together but if you're asking do do. I think that our Party has done more than just sully itself but as compromise itself to the point that it isn't sure what it is anymore. I do think that I think that we only in this moment where it will go in the future. I don't know in this moment. I think the only identity that our party has is anti left I think when when rush limbaugh changed the slogan of his show from the from the advanced conservative studies to the Advanced Institute of anti leftist. I switched back I think he did but it was. Actually it was in an honest moment because we used to not everyone who votes Republican but will use to in the core of the movement the about conservatism and then in the moment of trump at the core of the movement. Were just about fighting the let s you were. I disagree with you about this is I think trump is a symptom of that phenomenon. I think you know I guess Ted Cruz about this and I I love cruise but he's a politician as hard to get an honest answer and I said look you know Tucker Carlson. This wonderful line where you sort of happy. Country doesn't elect Donald Trump. That's not something that happens. Unhappy Country the Republican conservative movement in my opinion had failed. I thought I failed in three specific ways. I think thinking failed by supporting the wars of the Freedom Agenda which turned out to be an overstep that was that was a big thing I think it failed to restrain the a legislative staff the administrative state because nobody actually wanted to do the work and I know you and I have disagreed on this but I think it failed the people in the heartland of the country by talking about free markets while they start. I don't kill themselves just just as just as I think failed. I think it collapsed. I think it is I said this almost immediately after the election I I think we're living in a room without gravity and the furniture's voting around. Nobody knows where it's going to come down and I think that that's the phenomenon were seen. I think trump is part of that. What I'm hoping hoping for and strategizing for and praying for is that after trump there is a new conservative movement because the Cold War's over guys you know Reagan Conservative is out the date. We need a new concern. I don't believe I don't believe it's out of date. I don't believe I don't believe that the founding principals principals out of date but to apply and I don't agree that the conservatism conservatism failed the Republican Party failed that there was this huge populous movement toward conservatism that happened during the Obama years and no matter how much power Howard gave the Republican Party the Republican Party betrayed absolutely refused surgery. I think that if conservatism had been more. Oh realistic more responsive see what maybe they wouldn't have done that but look. I think that's a fair comment as a couple of things one. I think that on economics you are. You are doing a fair bit of revisionist. Vision is history. I am not aware of the Republican Party that was small government and universally pro free trade and anti steel subsidies and anti an anti specific tariffs. They weren't antisocial rhetoric. George W Bush spent more money than creases okay. George W Bush was a big spender campaigned on compassionate concerns about the exact ah he campaigned on exactly when it came to spending the agenda that Donald Trump he gave us new entitlements. I grew to give us all the things that gave us security that he essay right exactly the big government. Manatt super-conservative Guy who happened to share a couple of socially conservative values and like tax cuts. I mean that that was really kind of what it was and so I'm not not aware of this this Republican Party that you're of which you speak and and whose agenda failed so I don't think that that was actually ever the agenda in terms of practice or even in terms of campaigning when they were complaining Companions Compassionate Conservatives in two thousand. I think the the the last conservative Roy campaigned as a small government conservative was Ronald Reagan. No one has done it since George H W Bush did it and then betray lost right right the conservative movement failed. I mean by not having an by the way we did not fail on pro-life succeeded wildly on pro-life. Yeah okay this but everything Liam staying calm conservative movement did not collapse because of Donald Trump. Donald trump was elected because the conservative movement collapsed okay. The conservative movement movement collapsed into rage. It didn't collapse because it didn't collapse because of principle it collapsed because of frustration and lapsed into who will punch these people in the Grill Donald Trump what because donald trump listen running on on John Boehner gave us Donald Trump yeah I mean I I agree with us. It was it was jumping was the most pressing personnel but the the more than that so you said that you know right now you don't regret your vote and Jeremy. You sort of said that that you also don't regret your vote. Here's my my answer. I don't know yet okay so I and I know that sort of a cop out but I really don't know yeah so so I think that I I've been very clear about and what about my vote I got wrong and that was his how he would govern and then there's the long term ramifications of the trump presidency and I have no no but who does nobody but I think I thank you think you know. I don't know that's not that's not it. That's not I think because I don't I have no basis to judge and that's you have to vote in the moment. You have to devoting time. Nobody knows the few now you've already said. You can't say I'm GonNa Phone in my vote twenty years from now and I'm not blaming you anytime during the election right I said like I'm and I can go over trump until he was like it was kind of the Godfather. When Sonny gets in the way you talk it was like being machine-gun okay but when but when it came to people who explained why but then by the time you voted for trump you voted for trump. No I mean I never at any point said people should actively actively not vote. I said I can't do it but I never say oh and I don't. I don't believe I don't blame you for not doing it. I'm I'm invited to the point. I'm making is that when it comes to the the questions of things in life we regret because that is inherently retrospective and I'm not talking about in the moment and the moment. You always feel good about what you're doing. You're doing it in the moment so now. We're talking about retrospective. 'cause that was the topic of conversation so you're saying in retrospect you don't you are very you feel fulfilled. These feel good about how you voted and I don't know. I don't know like I feel bad about the fact that I got him wrong on politics. I don't feel bad about how I felt about him on character because I think that he's proved to be all the things that I thought he was. I think that in in terms of what the country has been you know and and what has been done to the country not just by trump also by mostly the reaction to trump right the and that's not trump's fault. That's that's from being in the left just losing its mind right. I'm just going way off the rails again. So trump's presence is not responsible for that in the same way that when I go on campus and people lose their demise. I'm not responsible for that but it is true that the campus is the worst place because I'm there right but it's because of that. I don't know yet and and the one thing that I'm afraid of their things. I'm afraid of these fears still obtain but I'm not sure they're avoidable anymore. Was Germany's concerned that the Republican Publican party would be soul sucked embrace. A bunch of stuff never would have before not even in terms of policy because the Republican Party goes up and down in terms of spending and in terms of tennis disparate elements to it as well right and it's got a lot of different stuff in it but in terms of the the like today when people were militantly I mean I saw like he's absolutely innocent..

If you guys hate the fans so oh I love the fans so what's going on in the news and we weren't originally scheduled to do the show tonight. We're actually GONNA the next week and then it became Oh my God the biggest news day of two thousand nineteen impeachment GEICO and it's it's solid stuff guy so this week's been mentioned so far. I mean let's be real. I've been having a great time. So why don't we begin with a little bit of background. Who wants to sum up what happened here knows you talk well? There was an this is only source I had to go on is the president the most perfect phone call I ever occurred since Alexander Graham Bell was born and that was between the president of Ukraine and President of the United States Donald Trump this. We'd heard word for a week now through media leaks reports this was it. This was the end of the game for Donald Trump. It was all over they were going to start an impeachment inquiry for it. President President trump in a rare move releases the transcript of the phone call which raises a whole slew of other questions so now we can read the transcript. We've got it. Today doesn't matter the speaker of the House. Nancy Pelosi has officially formally declared an impeachment inquiry and nobody really knows what that means. You know what she's formal. She said Michael Scott declaring during bankruptcy. Declare yet for this. This transcript was released. Yes so she had no idea it was you were talking about it so when I woke up this morning admittedly later than the rest of you because I barely have a job I went to my favorite little breakfast restaurant and I was enjoying a nice Nice well. I'll be honest I eat chilly for breakfast from Texas. I'm weird chilly for breakfast and CNN was on and the Kyron for the entire hour that I was in my favorite brush breakfast restaurant said transcript reveals president pushed Ukraine to investigate by and I thought imagine back to the the days of yesteryear when you had men like Walter cronkite or Tom Brokaw or Peter Jennings thanks flying the big the big desks right and I'm almost positive that at that time the Kyron would have said transcript reveals president asked Ukraine to investigate by but the word asked which is neutral inaccurate has been replaced in today's journalism with pushed which is editorializing right. I mean you're begs. The question pushed with what that's the answer is pushed with military aid. Oh look it's quid pro quo impeachable so this is the whole thing's a mess the the the back story to the back story there is of course that president trump is very concerned with the Joe Biden Hunter Biden allegations circa two thousand sixteen in which Hunter Biden was working for a company called on the basis of his long history of being completely useless and being biden knowing about giving really hasn't done anything about anything he'd been announced it from the navy for drug use like the he had serious problems right this guy who has a very chequered history and he's being paid fifty thousand dollars per month to sit on the board of this company Barista. Yeah I mean you know per month per month. How many months that I think all of them all of allies roughly Oh and has six hundred thousand this richly for doing so little until Michael Most so you think we pay Michael Knowles Joe so so Joe Biden was was the vice president at the time he's flying around with Hunter Biden their allegations about some of their relationships in China but Hunter Biden's on the company on on the Board of company Burris Ma there is a prosecutor in Ukraine is Victor Shokhin and Victor Shokhin is widely believed to be corrupt by the EU by the IMF by the Obama Administration Asian and he's investing breeze my and then maybe not investigating burris men certain point Joe Biden openly threatens and talk about this openly threatens to withdraw one billion dollars in American Eric in loan guarantees unless Shokhin his ousted now people on the right make the connection okay? Maybe the reason why he's doing that is because Shokhin was investigating Burris MMA and the media basically said no no no no no. It's not about that. He just everybody wanted out and Biden was in charge regardless of whether there was an actual corrupt nexus cure. It's obviously a conflict of interest. I mean there's no way that she's she's been leading that up that that up anyway so trump wants investigation into that the allegation again Joe Biden was leveraging American taxpayer dollars for his own personal benefit but he does this allegedly by leveraging the American taxpayer dollars for his own personal that that's the allegation so the allegation is by the Democrats and by the media that president trump withheld four hundred million dollars in Ukrainian cranium aid in order to force them to investigate his chief political rival at this point Joe Biden so here's some money going Cherokee tribe to investigate Elizabeth Warren uh-huh because we've broken every treaty. We have historically what I WANNA know. What I WANNA know is win did win would Ukraine ordinarily expect expect to receive this this military aid and how long did they not receive it after they were receiving it regularly I don't know if there was monthly or quarterly but they were receiving regularly for the first couple years of the trump administration so that in and of itself does it change the Obama administration had not provided the sort of aid to Ukraine they'd just been giving them like Mr? He's basically and Ukraine. We need some weapons to fight off the Russian insurgents who are trying to murder US and Obama's like nope and so trump comes in that changes now are providing them with javelin missiles goals for example and in July mid July so here. I'm GonNa give you the Democrats point of view and then we can start working on debunking talking about what's wrong with their word that's lacking so I want to build up the strongest strongest case for the Democrats and then we can talk about the transcript and all of that because we still like being honest we here on the show we enjoy honesty. It's a thing I know media. Matters is a thing so in any case the in any case the basic timeline is in mid-july president trump tells the head of the Office of Management and budget personally apparently Mick Mulvaney. He wants to stop the aid to Ukraine a week later he has this phone call was Alinsky and that's what the transcript is that we're GONNA go through a few weeks after that. He still has not opened up aid to Ukraine and people we're starting to ask questions like why the hell not providing aid to Ukraine in the middle of September the beginning of September you have the Washington Post runs the story September fifth about Ukraine aid being held September ninth. There's this whistle blower complaints with somebody. In the intelligence community filed a whistleblower complaint with the Inspector General of the intelligence community saying that something untoward has gone on they've they've heard a promise on a call. It's all secondhand as we learn but the notice goes to the Inspector General the Inspector General says yes this is urgent which means it has to now be reported to Congress the Director of National Intelligence Steps in and says well whatever the content is it doesn't fulfill the statutory requirements virgin so it can't be turned over so September Ninth Congress finds out that this thing even exists two days later trump releases the aid so the democratic case is he was holding up the aid because he wanted to leverage the Ukrainians and then as soon as it became public he let the aid go 'cause. He didn't want the blowback right. That's that's their case and the second part of their case is Rudy Giuliani. The president's personal attorney has been spending the last two years basically going in and out of Ukraine investigating getting this biden stuff and then rudy being literally the worst spokesperson on the history of mankind. I mean this Guy Makes Sean. Spicer looked like Jay Carney's unless he was the greatest mayor of New York. Only maybe tied more.
