"Very easy to spot for a teacher. I show a shelter over I punch you at teachers like, Hey, stop when girls bully it's we're all sitting at a table. You sit down and everyone just gets up and walks away. And it's like now you're crushed like teachers can't get in the way because they can't see in some ways. It's I. Think it's easier for for boys because there's at least the confrontation it I'm GonNa kick your ass after school or something was like well, maybe it does get your ass kicked maybe you fight back whatever. But then it's over over where's with girls it's this constant kind of grading and you can't just fight them. You have to fight back in this weird way. The same thing i. i. also do think that I think seeing. All the shit that's out there online. It's like you know kids are seeing like most and I think seeing all the kind of like instagram models and and like trying to. Sign and that's I think we've really damaging. Thank your best skin because a filter and right and then you see people and I had this to. I. See People at their best on their vacations. Yeah. I don't see them board clicking. The TV channel up to present them something. Yeah. Awesome. I tried to tell my friend trade to like, Hey, can you show a real version of your kids spilled milk? Real version of Motherhood Yeah. Yeah. Whenever hairbrush I think to that degree like to me I just I I go like the only solution that there is is that parents have to get on top of the shed and hopefully there can be enough demand that there's things like you said like more parental controls and things like that. But I think I just think that's like the only solution out there out in terms of like the stuff of how it. Degrades the culture. It's like. I think that. The algorithm almost is going to be it's going to magnify us. So if you know what I mean like if you have people who are like a twitter is the most negative one. If you drop a pin prick and drop drop of negative blood in twitter, it's a feeding frenzy like marks right if you drop a pinprick into a of negativity like I hate this place into a Church Group A church group now if fucking. Wolf. That was. Just go back to being nice 'cause they don't feed off of that. But if you pinprick in that group on autistic hit eight, three pointers, they're gonNA around the feeding frenzy on positively right because we get what we. So to me. It's like what what you need nobody I i. Yeah I. Think the kind of I get what you're saying but like it's like so to me, it's almost more like the real solution to all of this shit is you need to like raise your kids you know lovingly and well, and you need to like treat people good and we need to stop pumping that poison into society and to me I look. At much more of that is like like the woke shit coming out of universities, the Falcon poison of like the Corporate Press Shit like that. You need to stop pumping so much poison and and Otherwise it's going to result in my friends think is now a backlash I've also talked to people who have daughters that are fifteen who hate millennials yeah. We think millennials are just at each other's throats all the time, and so I'm hopeful that. We're not doing that see nobody.

"Teachers like Kim Half Sally see how much they. Claim of times already such a great like I what was going to say well, we just saying you're worried about friends from the disease. Judea schools opening. What we're talking about right before smoke pot. I didn't children. It's always when I don't smoke ads problems the years of. we saying right before this Ellie people each other's throats oh, so he's talking about. Do Smoke. Smoke toddlers. Children that it will It only takes a five seconds yet your. Back and then you're. Good Memories. So I was like, Hey, schools, I'm worried about it transmitting. It's like we're not just came close. There's nothing wrong with learning and goes oh well, just you know a lot of people that actually to port it it's the school lunch program is actually a major thing and this is like the way a lot of kids like the only way they can really get a good meal like. Not You me was like Oh. Yeah. Good Point. I hadn't really thought about that. That is rare in this world. It was easy. I was clear like a point I hadn't really. Yeah but like. People in for the most part would go fuck you this disease matter it's instead of going. Yeah. Yeah. I hear that. But at the same time I want Ron Bennington to live. Yeah. There's no discussion anymore there's a lot I. think there's so many factors that like, oh? Yeah. Good Point. Well, I think a lot of it is that like People are raised like our our culture became very Lake, we kind of overthrew a lot of traditional norms. Like that posts sixties, you know kind of America, there's like these. Traditional like things like you know religion and and you know nationalism and chivalry l.. These forces that don't we don't really have them that most societies had and we we really became very atomised and like individualistic in the bad sense of the word very consumer base. I'll look out for. And Right, and there's also of a real distrust in the experts and like I was saying before I think for good reason in a lot of cases and so people kind of feel like well, I know best and I'll figure it out myself. We're kind of bombarded with a lot of this kind of like empty propaganda. It's like just be you and that's good. Enough snow. You shouldn't you. You should improve yourself like what now maybe you're not maybe you isn't good enough. No one says that was as big as beautiful to lose a shitload away like I feel amazing. Love.

"Edison and his What do you think goes that's Tala game plan if he does that WHO will win. That's great. Yeah. I'm just GONNA fight. That's great. Yeah So then they talked about interesting. So. What does Biden? Stanford if you were like if you if you would build the ideal voter who would like Oh bides my guy in every way. Possible. What would well here's what Biden will tell you. I mean, he's censored. Say The the thing is that Biden doesn't really want to run on his track record because it's not great. I mean he wants to run on kind of Obama. Administration you know we did some great things. They're so little bit. Of of his tracker, but he's not gonNA run on the ninety four crime bell. You know he's not gonna run on like Oh. Yeah. Ramped up the war on drugs and I'm a big part of the reason why this should is going on He's not going to run on that. He's not gonNA run on the war in Iraq, which he enthusiastically supported. You know all their ships very unpopular now especially, amongst base. So what Biden is running on is basically the democratic. Movement narrative about America, which is that the problem is trump. The problem is reporting. It's just said the problem is trump and I represent a return to normal. For the soul is what he'll say we're fighting for the soul of the entree. This is good versus evil essentially America had its problems. There are these issues, but everything was pretty much good before Donald trump came along and he's caused all of this awfulness and I represent a return to work had in the Obama administration a pre trump you know. I'm a decent person I care about people not racist I have empathy. That's kind of the central message of Joe Biden Scam, this issue and my friends, my friend who has a wife who was like had to be. Checked out again and she was pretty sure I will look it up but We had the same thing I doing a bit about it for a bit and for a little bit. I mean and it was that wouldn't apply after March Fifteenth Twenty Twenty. But before that was like my issue is I live in a liberal bubble of New York. Manhattan. So pretty much everyone I meet is a liberal person. Ninety percent. On some degree of liberalism, New, York's Manhattan. In the Conservatives are not like these hardcore like thought blacks. This is not around you know so. Everyone sort of the same side and that side is fucked. Trump guys in animal.

"WAY OVER THERE Yeah Yeah, we might have to. and then the wars these wars are stupid. They've wasted a lot of money and cost a lot of lives and we get nothing for them. He's he is damn. Sure right look. He's right about the wars thing and he's got at least a point on the other to whether or not you you agree with him. So those were his issues and I think that's now you could. You could modify it a little bit to be like his his issues are like. I the economy was doing great before Cova. Ed You know. It's it's that you know wasn't. There was the democratic governors, shut it down and now his issues would be more modified to be like against the kind of left wing. Socialists? Craziness. So I'm not with his disingenuous when I saw Biden going I see a lot of disingenuousness ingenuousness. All allow it go look. He's the only president history to have less jobs when he left office or you know after I joined the before and. You have. Come on there's a big massive thing. Well, Joe Biden said the other day. He said all of the Cova deaths are on. Donald Trump. That's crazy. Dude I mean come on even he was even if he handles wells Uruguay. There's no I mean this this is ripped through the entire fucking world's. To blame to blame a virus on Donald. Trump is is pretty insane I. Mean You could criticize his handling of it if you want to. Be. Specific. What do you think he didn't do that he should have done it makes me not want to believe you well, yes that's exactly right. It's a very politician thing to say but in in Joe Biden's defense I think Joe Biden is just saying what his handlers tell him to say on a lot of these issues but so so donald trump is going to and I think the best. Going into this campaign, the best issue that's been handed to him yeah is is the the riots and the violence is that he's going to say, look, this is what the left-wingers represent and against this. Our on today about about Kentucky.

"Amazing that when. People are people like what you were saying about Cuomo and all these people on TV eventually like, Oh, I like being on TV that no one's immune to that just politicians or whatever. and. Even, if it's like no I like I WANNA promote Democrats or promote women they're still comes with like I don't like you. Yeah. So like that person, I wrote down their name and here last week. When somebody one of the early like Comedians who like? Went public with a rape and I was like Oh my God can you believe it was big thing we know one done that before in the comedy world that I was aware of and everyone's talking about and this person who is super into like when she goes that goes a liar just you know she lies a lot and you're like, wow, and it was like, Oh, you had your stuff before cloud how you reacted to. The personal even outweighed the political on that point. But I also think with Hillary Clinton a lot of that was just the political stuff like they're just like, okay. We have to ruin whoever is anti war and that's been going on for a long time in this country like anybody who's antiwar all the sudden we find out about all the skeletons in their closet and everything they've done. Hill and to have you know even though a lot more people see through the system today to have the last nominee come out and call someone in the Democratic primary a Russian asset. We'll do enough to get people going ooh, maybe I should stay away from that. So all the Hillary. Sixty five million people did vote for Hillary Clinton. Some of those people are going to be a little influenced by that. So they did that to her but the big difference between. wasted. that. Colder. Of. Tokyo. What is Tony me and she goes I, don't know and. Then, this is the amazing thing. This kind of goes to what you were saying about how great the debate on Rogan's show would be is that because Rogin it's not even like like this is like my favorite thing about the Joe's podcast is that it's not even like he he gets like he got angry at her or like. Don't say that about Tulsi Gabbard like I'm with he's Rogan's just like a bullshit detector. So when you say something that's bullshit he just goes with that doesn't make sense to me. So he literally just a couple follow up questions and she collapsed. Into herself shouldn't even know what the word meant. Let alone no listen if you want to years ago on this podcast. I went through the whole war in Syria and how fucking America started the civil war had they wanted basically the war hawks wanted another Iraq war that probably would have been a bigger disaster than Iraq and it did turn out to be a disaster and Tulsi Gabbard knows all of that shit like all of the shit that I talked about two years ago tolls Gabbard knows that shit as well better than than me. So that's what that why. She went to go meet with him in the same way that if someone went in fucking the year two, thousand two to go meet with Saddam Hussein and be like, can we work out a deal where we don't have to have this war? You could slander them as like, Europe your Saddam Toady. But the truth is that they knew that there was be another disastrous war coming up that we could maybe avoid and that's what she was trying to say. What other world leader? Yeah. Try to figure out ways around it and Fuck Barry. Weiss is whole thing man like she's okay on some of the cultural stuff but it's like you're going to sit here and be like Oh. There's this cancel culture and you just get labeled racist. If you WANNA have a different opinion I'm against all of that. But at the same time when someone. Has a different opinion on war. What did you do to her the same thing? You fucking slander her? Oh, she's she's an Assad. Toady. So pay no attention to the argument she's making just just like call her evil what happen is and and by the way one of the things I do like about Rogan I've seen Merrin do the same sort of thing when it comes like. We're like publicly say like this years ago one of the erasers that happened We'll be that guy was wrongdoing somebody's wide. You still talk to him and he goes because he's my friend. and. It was like I can say what things Rogan's had buried waste back on. Their I'm with you forever. No I think he he thinks she's got some interesting things because he likes her she does have some interesting things to say I just the hypocrisy of all of that drives me fucking crazy. The way they talk to the girlfriends but still friends with them and I think she also tried to get some college professor fired when she college for like being like critical of Israel. So it's just kind of like, okay. You should at least if you're going to be the champion of don't cancel people for having different opinions, don't don't label them as a horrible person listen to what they have to say then don't engage in you're. So that's what. His pocket started with all the things like how do they do this? How To do this? You have to stop and go by the way I've also done those horrible things. I'm just saying we have to stop doing we can fall prey to this but. We're trying not to be a blatant hypocrite at least I. Think what she did with I honestly think went berry rice was doing with that calling the toady of whatever is the same thing I'll do..

"From from from England who believes that you just can't. They just won't bother you. So I was like they can't go back to can't change the law back, and then it was pointed out that didn't change the law they stopped at forcing the law. So if they want to change it back, it'd be a hard problem, but it's still illegal to street right? There just like. Got Bigger to worry about. Yeah. So they're not going to give it back. So what we say in terms of like now with that. It's this is. Look like the amount of power that's been seized by the government in the last or since March is unprecedented in America I, mean not to say like. There were you I mean we had slavery in this country at one point and we've had military drafts, and so they certainly have violated freedom of groups of people you know in a in a serious way but. TO HAVE AMERICANS WATCHING TV every day to listen to your governor to see if are allowed to go to the park allowed to go to the store allowed to see your friend I mean literally dictating every inch of what you are allowed to do is something that's never happened in modern American history I. Mean there's no there's nothing to compare the closest thing I can remember it for my life is really just like if it's snowing, stay up and watch until like we're off school tomorrow. Yes. Right something like that but was everything and this is This is adults being told what they're allowed to do and to insist that Americans have to give up. Everything I mean like that. It's like, no, you are. You are not allowed to go. To your wife's Sonogram, you're not allowed to go to your father's funeral. You're not allowed I mean like things that are like really profound will important in people's lives. Oh. Yeah. That's that's that's the doing zoom. Say Goodbyes people are really I mean obviously very extenuating circumstances shore well, yes I agree but I would say that one of the things that. Really, find to be like a troubling. Aspect all this is that even so even with Really like the Constitution's dead and nobody fucking follows the Constitution and There's always point to go guess who's everything right like nothing if the if we enforce the constitution probably about eighty to ninety percent of what the government does the about food. When I write have those people in the League should be in jail you. You'd like doing illegal stuff. Yeah. Graffiti For All the time I paint over ads. Deal I do draw what do you talk what do you? What do you mean big is what I care about yes it is a different law. But so right. But so there's that right and you could certainly make a strong argument that like the wars are unconstitutional that Obama's spying was unconstitutional and stuff, but they almost always at least try to use some rationale like they have some. Well, here's why using the con- Congress never declared the war in Iraq and they go. Yeah. But they did battle write a letter of authorization or or right they'll say things like they'll be like. Well, this was this wasn't a war. This was a military activity or so they but with this which was. Just. Clearly. Constitutional I mean you don't have to be a constitutional scholar to be like well, obviously, the government can't do this I mean literally read the First Amendment and then tell me how the government has a right to close down a church like the you clearly don't have and they didn't even attempt to justify it like it wasn't even like they were just like well, whatever were scared and we want to stop this virus and the you know there was one as governor Murphy, the Governor of New Jersey he was on Tucker Carlson show. One of the only times the height of all this believe it was April might have been in May it was, but it was at the height of lockdowns and it was like one of the only times you know you see the governor's on TV all the time it was one of the only time someone gave him like a a tough interview and he said to him basically this like what I just brought up he goes will wear do you like get the authority to tell someone that they can't go to church because there was an instance of like some people have been arrested for going to Church That he goes. Well, how can you arrest someone? I, mean, look here's the first amendment. How can you arrest someone for practicing their religion? This clearly violates the bill of rights and Governor Murphy's response was we weren't thinking about the bill of rights when we did this, that's above my pay grade I'm listening to the doctors and okay. Even if you completely believe that this was the right thing to do for the virus like even if that's your argument, which is debatable but if that's what you believe. Okay. But don't you still. Like like follow protocols virus, right that was going to kill a hundred million Americans. And the only way to stop it was to institute martial law. Example. Wouldn't you? Still even if you think it's the right thing to do in the circumstance be like, yeah that's a real danger. That's a real danger that we just gave the government the authority to say at, you know what? Screw the bill of rights because I say, this is this is worse lake the I'm just saying. This because I try to do this every year on the state of the Union obviously like I I always say like at the beginning on radical fucking libertarian. That's my perspective on these things and I say half to kind of give you where I'm coming from. But also to just be honest about my bias like I certainly have a bias and all of this but I think that is some fucking really I would say it's a bit so you. Explain it to be well, once where like if I'm not infringing on your rights that I can do pretty much whatever I want you know, and so then some some like inbetween rules are, can I throw a party in my apartment like yeah sure. That's fine. But some upstairs. So you are kind of infringing on on on their ability to whatever you know. This Is, not just like. It feels less like you gotta wear seatbelts and more like you can't drive drunk right so right so there are gray areas where you might say like, okay, it's debatable whether or not you're infringing on someone else's right. So like if you fucking have Cova Ed and you're like, well, I'm just going out to Vulcan party you know like. Or unknowingly is that infringing on their rights like okay there's there's some debate there. But truthfully, if you if you were to follow that too, it's ultimately logical conclusion than any danger. Well, I mean, the flu kills folk and people get so so does that justify now taking away all freedoms from people every flu season and don't I know you're not allowed to compare covid to the fucking flu or? Like a trigger for people, I'm just saying like as a logical. Extreme examples to say like okay. So we're so obviously there's gotta be some reasonable line drawn and like Kobe is bad. It's a fucking really nasty virus. We're it's probably three times worse than the flu you know what I mean, but it's like. It's still like to say, okay, we can shut all of this down over the virus is a dangerous game and. I think I think some of it seeking it's not really clear. What was clear from what happened from March on that this was a fucking novel virus that really nobody was an expert in and we're trying to figure out they were trying to figure it out and they made horrible mistakes and we'll all world. The whole world was doing it. Oh, you're seeing bodies pile up in Italy and you're hold on we got to do something because we take forever in bureaucracy there's a good chance of going to be right where they're at but one of the things that was really creepy to me going back to mark learning more later something else in the moment we like what are we going to do here? Sure an honest mistakes are made. And lots were. But it one of the things that was really creepy in March was how quickly it all happened like how quickly Americans in crazy would give up this this whole thing and just go ok well, we're scared you told us to be scared let's fucking do whatever you tell us to do and I guess to be fair to Americans they were they were also lied into this like they kind of got conned into this whole thing what what we were all told was need fifteen days to flatten the curve. So the argument that started this really reminds me of the really was it was a different thing early on like flat in the curb so that the hospitals won't get. It. So if you get to a car accident, we have a bed for you. Right? That was the whole justification. It. Wasn't it was this was just to me. It reminded me so much of the war in Iraq where they went the guy's got fucking nuclear weapons and he's working with al Qaeda. So do you WanNa? Do you got a guy who's got weapons of mass destruction? He can hand them off to al Qaeda, and then instead of nine eleven we're looking at a fucking nuke over here and no one really asked a lot of follow up questions because that was so absurd and like any everyone who knew this was bullshit but like we were so scared of that that it was like, okay. Well, we'll give you a blank check to go to war well. Shortly after that, it was like this is about building a democracy for Iraq but.

"Then like it wasn't Bush like still have been instead of like. It wasn't by Bush and like. All right. So that just dropped maybe Russia. But it wasn't like they did some deal in a garage or anything, and then as soon as I dropped like how about this? Maybe we're GONNA for this and it was like you guys just seem like you WanNa. Seems like you just WanNa, get him for something at this point and I mean we we talk last year a lot about the Russia gate thing. And so I I'd say listen to that for for like my take on that that whole thing it's fucking bullshit. It was all a setup. It was it was you know like at this point all the information's out if you care to look into it like that whole thing was bullshit. And the Ukraine thing was just like a desperate stretch and the truth is that most people like at a situation where okay. The when Joe Biden Vice President he was basically in charge of the Ukrainian policy that the that was one of the things Obama put him on and his fucking kid is working for this huge fucking energy company in Ukraine getting paid like I forget what it was three hundred k. a month some ridiculous fucking thing and you're like. Really the guy doesn't even speak the language, he has no experience in the energy sector. This is so obviously can. Attempt to buy access it almost like if you just randomly get a judge in case and he's like Oh actually, I went to school with your with your uncle. So I can't be part of this case right so like even if he got the job by himself like, Hey, I can't do it anymore because dad just got this So Dad you either stop or I honest but it looks too bad even. If it was on the level which there's no way now truthfully speaking, you know trump probably committed like a faux pas in the fact that he asked this guy to investigate the Biden Iran they are really supposed to do that. But for it to be like, no president ever has been impeached and removed from office really never happened in the country and to say, you're going to do that to this guy for this. Crime when like I, mean the crimes that presidents have committed throughout the history of this country are like I mean just the last three you know like Bush instituted torture and lied us into wars and Obama spa built a spying apparatus to spy on every American citizen hit trump's continued all of these volcanoes and it's like this. This is the thing that you're going to try to do this over it seems like Impeachment. So in in South Korea they protested every day for I think like hundreds of days against their leader who is taking spiritual advice from from like a guru and letting that dictatorship policy She was great for a little bit and then she went Kookaburra cocoa senator was like and it was like we got rid of her they rain shine. They never saw protesting until eventually get her out of office. But it wasn't so much like you do this illegal thing it was just like, Hey, you're you're doing a bad job and we want you gone and we don't wait three years com. We've all decided with hate the job you're doing a vote of no-confidence whatever it is but it's like that seems like that's what impeachments should be and we have it as like you got to break one of these specific rules. Yeah. Right. Come on. Stop. Ruining Art. Who is it Robert Kelly? He doesn't know any of this of course. Yeah. The fucking. Impeachment process was I. Think it was A. It would have said I think it backfired on the Democrats, but honestly so much happens. Then the nobody cares right a race from the memory. So let's start. Let's start with this because the state of the union not just of politics right and we've been covering some years political election years of two thousand sixteen was probably more I remember I listened back to part of last year's Day because I try to you know make sure I don't say the go over the same exact shit and I said at one point ago. Well, next year we'll have a great one because it's an election year. And that was what I thought. It'd be next year. Obviously, it'll be a big year because it's an election year and again that seems like one of the smaller details of twenty twenty I'll tell you. So I started stand up again you know after months off my. I believe my longest running March People Mitch June. Close, close to my longest break our. And I was like had this thing I talked to my friends about it like what material you guys GonNa do when you get back the old stuff and I'm like, yeah and I get it if you're on the road like. Selling out a show like we just want you entertain us. But like if you're doing a spot where it's not your show Mike, I feel like a fraud if four months later, I still had stuff about holding the subway door open. MIC also there's no subway right now and black lives matters happened. The whole world has gone down under this fucking virus. So it took me like four or five or six cents over like a month, and then now I can do an old joke again. Sure. Yeah. So so much has happened. Even though black lives matter is not like. This year actually started years before Obama but like it's different, it's different now. Yes. Difference much bigger thing. It was never like mass. Protests riots fucking like it's a whole different level but I guess we should start with the fucking because Kobe, that's the. What changed everything was this year in fucking I mean January and February were somewhat normal months. In? Hindsight People like worst you're ever. It's like they keep saying that I'm a look the negative and everything because like most years look back like it was great. Well, look I mean. Well. Yeah. Well, it it gives you some perspective, right like it. It's amazing. How much like two thousand nineteen to me felt like, oh, this is a crazy fucking year and when we were doing the podcast last year like I was talking about all that shit and it's like, yeah, did this fucking crazy there were accusations at the president committed treason and then they all fell apart. He's found out this happened in any other where you're talking about seem really important. Now, this year, you're like Oh what a simpler, Falcon time. Simpler Falcon time like this. This is different than anything. There's like you know. The country has been profoundly changed and in a way that will not be undone like in the same way like after nine eleven, you know there was like almost this feeling of. Okay. So when do we go back to normal like when do we go back and people were terrified? If you remember right after nine eleven of another nine eleven style attack that was the big fear now that fear goes away none of us are really thinking about another nine eleven style attack. I mean, maybe some people are but the vast majority of us are not living in fear of that. You the fucking Tsa Sheriffs, TSA stay the Department of Homeland Security is here to stay the wars as a responser seemed to be here to stay. So there's it's like, no, we're not going back. Were you when you give the government, a tremendous amount of additional power Milton Friedman said once the there's nothing. So permanent as a temporary government program like if the government takes power, it's very, very hard to roll it back and usually even if you roll it back, it's like they start at zero go to ten role at back to seven but you're still seven higher than you started when you think about it. Let's just say we started these wars to get the Guy Tactless Saban Lot and it took ten years almost. We got him. Okay we're all disbanded. It's like it's like, who's The gladiators? Killed Whoever's now, let's go back to farm life right I'm done with this thing Rambo up time to go back on the road. Yeah, I've done this I'm not gonNa keep government never does that yeah. They go back to for it whenever there's like an emergency situation. They grab new power, and then when people why would you give back? To give it up hold on a little bit I was hoping because now you can drink in the streets and I was like I was talking to my friend.

Not because we sound but because the Metropolitan Police have now admitted they've had held an internal investigation is called operation. Bruins and the opening loin is that meet the Somebody information on the blacklist follows with Supply Special Branch and Salvi. Festively you go Paul. Solve the British tights You know the dependent equal policing needs of British type. A Spine on union activists some providing information to to big business and and if that was happening anywhere else in the world the mainstream media and the BBC becoming mad about ants open about deceit in spin spotlight on boy by the state and all the rest of it and one of the reasons that we carry on doing these kind of pie in one of the reasons. Why I think Lucy's film selling porn is when you first so people this story. It's almost as if things that happen in this country and it's just quite often British. British colonialism almost invented this kind of stuff and the whirlwind talk to trade unionists in other parts of the world. They completely surprised about it. Whereas in this country people are. That's that's that's I think one of the questions. If that is state at the beginning of the film is what's relationship between the states and capitalism is something that I think I suppose hopefully a public inquiry there is a is one with reveal exactly what those linked swear more. These conversations were between the state and big business and I think in the film as well where we see. Dave being arrested for public odor offensive blocking roads. And I think that's an foundry fascinating of where how does the Lou define public order like Define Odor and when we see a guest particularly now around the environment where we see a big business so resistant to making changes that are going to support order through and we'll have the environment. Bigger questions are being asked around. What's what's more what's more important temporary fixes or the bigger the bigger fixes his first documentary film. Was He easy for you to get funding? Was it quite tricky as a filmmaker? How did you find it yet? I'm so I went with them. City projects in Cape Pirka who produced the film and she was really fantastic working to fundraise. We got funding from the arts maliciously but then from that we got funding from a number smooth trusts and donations from trade unions and individuals wasn't easy to get the funding and move was a learning process as well as the first feature film. It made and when you don't have the film's behind you people and is willing to support always but I think part of the pricing funding fundraising was also so community building and building audiences so one of the things we promised with when people funded Gibson nations that we would allow them to screen the film. So that's helped intensive arranging community screenings. Are you pleased with how the film's tone delve? Yeah I think I suppose I didn't set out as I introduced myself to David. Were my background's in short filmmaking and I wasn't sitting out to make his to conventional commit tree and I think one of the politics behind that is to have multiple voices and not have the traditional narrates. I think because love. It's quite complex. As water on the legal case to try and bring in multiple voices and to raise questions at different points in the film felt inputs in. I personally love the film What I love about is that some is precisely because Lucy is in our aced and not a documentary filmmaker. And I think he's a very obvious because documentary. Filmmaker wouldn't have my that film in anyway shape or form me my favorite scenes ear when George Fuller Person. Lucy's talk about beginning. He's doing the washing up his kitchen. Or there's a bit where paper I've been all Q. And an until combat stuff. It's just it's that stuff that makes his look human rather than just looking like coke in a big machinery. If the only thing we can ever talk about is Is Blacklisting because we're all human beings families and it's that bit though. I think it's got the emotional poll that brings us in and that's why I really think it works question Kobe. Did you see what's next? I'm starting to have conversations with people around unto come police inquiry which is starting to evidence this yea and we'll be hearing evidence next year as well so I met this early stages of working out if I will make about it but I feel committed to the course. This is undercover policing where they actually went undercover in various activists and actually had relationships. It's really wide reaching and the two women that speak in solidarity were two of the women in relationships with undercover police. A poet into police inquiry. And the Dave with the button support group and a family justice campaigns environmental campaigns trade union. So it's it's huge in its skirt which is quite problematic in lots of ways. It was really interesting in. Hurt brings together lots of different experiences. It starts to fifteen. That's right isn't it yet? Centuries a main sets it going in two thousand and fifteen so already it's been a really long process and the thing that I'm most interested in is what public inquiry ass and tries to represent and the problems of public inquiries as well. I'm typically as a state run activity and viewed Dave. What's next well? I'm actually a coal participant in this undercover police. Public Inquiry Lucy's are just been token about some of the undercover place offices was spying on trade unions One of them Is ni-nice went on new. Amy's nightmares mark custody. He was a call using the Siamese unionist. May I went to pick it? Lawrence William went to meetings with a May even rain one of the sites canopy in his In the building industry and years later we found it was actually an undercover police officer and his real name was Gena lived with a woman on new for all of us. What sign told me was already married? So yet that's Talked about is there anything shocking. GonNa Stuffy Sir. Very very shocking. And it's going on in our million because this is the police in the state during this is taxpayer money being spent on that Garner staff. And that's what I found outrageous and as Lucy said these public inquiry has been going on. It was south five years ago. Hasn't heard any evidence yet and fell of years. Baker universities across the country and I recently spoke in class. Go to a group of three hundred students and asked them if any of them had heard of this stuff about undercover police and three hundred two people the hand up with some people. Listen to your podcast of heard it. I don't think the vast majority of the British public I've heard about coal which is well. We can't portion because counts back to this thing before people still think the things are happening in this country and it clearly does. It's it's really important to understand the bigger picture of it and how it operated systemically completely end as someone who was followed on deliver loose and he's very very good friends with Zoey women to ride long-term relationship police officers everyone intermediaries When I talked us is always interested in APP. Tell us your cannot human interest story which is important. I mean it is shocking what happened. It's only about human interest. You miss the big political chat. Which is the facts?

"Today I'm joined by Lucy Park the director of the documentary film solidarity and USA. Have Dave Smith you features felt Lucy Festival? If I can ask you. Did the film comfortable. How do the film about 'em so I met George Fuller? He's in the film in Two thousand twelve. When I was in a writing group he was putting of and he was writing by experience of being blacklisted ads. And then I went with him to has the parliament to some meetings that were happening and then got to the Butler support group and gradually decided to make a film. Dave can I ask you? How did you first meet Lucy? And when she did approach you where you want. The whole idea of the film will met Lucy when she turned up with Joel. Gibb one of these parliamentary meetings. We ads and also the head coach. We will see an ad Rota justice about once a month for its own and actually from being skeptical. We were over the Mon. Someone was interested in what we're doing. And the case because most of the mainstream media it's completely so you've bypassed occasional bits on the on the Talian in the newspapers but you know it would just be era mayor and if emission was really looking for in probably missing so someone who's interested in doing a film we you know we say come on join US coming Joe and it was great and the film itself. Let me just briefly explain for our listeners. Solidarity. It's about a bunch of people who've been blacklisted mainly from the construction industry and Dave. Can you tell me very briefly? Become what your story is It wouldn't work out when Alexis go. I and I was also very Union member was a union safety net so I raised concerns mass by Stocks Building Salvatore flow in toilets. If I remember one time a young lad fell off a scaffold. Always say you know so. Add Safety Paul and the bike stories the even in the middle of the building boom I just now is the network when it was allowed to work around suddenly odd get Giovanni Beta a couple days or a few weeks I would lose my job. People sort of talks about blackness but it was only a little bit urban myth and name in two thousand and Knowing Government Department Information Commission did ride and found his blackness foil. We still being kept Tony. And because the government department you can apply to get a copy of your follow and my father always six pages. Long Scott Monnaie address. The national insurance number covers a fifteen year period more work. Quite stifling really eight yes I mean it's got the job complained about a special Caesar. Colby job rural complained about young fellow. Fallen off the scaffold and is recorded in the job complained about the oil. It's regarded it and it's basically the big multinational construction firms. Who MANAGES WOULD KEEP TABS? Zonja and then send information was kept on a centralized advice and every time you have to get a job one of the big buildings so it's anywhere in the country the big companies who checked to save your nine on this list and if it was you never got a job or if you're lucky enough to get on the job once they found out you were a sect you which is not very well documented now and even the Companies Doing Lucy when you start to Dell DEEPA. We'll use surprised by what you would discover it. He's thinking back now. No but at the time yes I think so. For example with Joe Jr case which which was the shock for me the fact that he'd been raising gathering signatures for a petition around homelessness and Housing tickly for women. That was shocked to me. The company would use that to keep track on him but Intensive how particularly in the construction industry how much they are working with voice to a med. That is not too much bishop. Now I feel like through learning about the blacklisting case I've I've developed movement understanding of how systems operate but I think also just tive socially how conditioned we are not to speak out and not to complain and I think it's really helped me to understand whether things come from in terms of being surprised about people being blacklisted. I think the extent to which it was an extent to which for example Ian Was employed to keep track of these lists the amount of companies in amount of h People who were invoked that feels to me like still like the surprise that that system can support something that is destroying people's lives. I mean I'm sure. Many listeners will be quite surprised to hear about this because of all all you're doing is by looking off to work. His all fighting for ordinary wrightson human minds. That really the the finger at noise of all of us is the if what we were doing was burning places down organizer so in people. They know you know. There's there's an understanding about why someone might keep tabs on your. What would we would. Just you know. Raising concerns about health and safety or in fact the very first Ngoma follow is about. I'm Pie. Why jeez actually it's from nineteen not to and he says. I was involved in its dispute over several weeks unpaid wages so because we have to remember it's I actually. We've done the work to be. You know that was enough to get nine on the follow and some of the things that paper on the foil for it's just it's just not and irrelevant and I remember one of the followers. He says that the person was saying where an anti Nazi league badge. And it's shown to be a member what he will remain to be. Anti Nazi thing. It's it's the facts the you know. Otherwise accepted be companies more. Not like you. If you're you know. Interrupt their ability to might profit bates. The it's instant death for the intrusion and it's the number of companies that are involved. We're talking about the biggest multinational firms fads all of these companies. Were doing this to me. Towns incredible depth all detail but they kept on individuals. I'm just amazed I mean even thinking about your family's just still amazed. I think lots of people are amazed. But we're so I think learning I guess about how the trade union movements been oppressed through from its initial founding. 's An the fact of the things race around trajan issues Isn't surprising so when you when you look at it in the history of oppression of the left. It's less of a surprise. If I'm honest. Very few of us were surprised. There is a blacklist. What was surprised? Rosie stayed the depth of it. But but since we've been running this campaign loads of stuff has come out for about. Monsanto spun on activists of McDonald spun on activists this stuff even in the newspapers this week about these banks by went on their own staff and so big corporation span on vice disagree with their managerial tactics and a more interrupt their ability to you know might money isn't really something new. I mean you know with that too bad. We capitalism these big corporations at Edsa Mike Money and and and if as a group of workers we're standing up fruit juice with their profit margins than in a get why they're doing a Dunkin. We shouldn't be surprised. I'm shocked at the intrusion outraged but I'm not really surprised that they were doing. I think one thing that I'm Steve. He's in the film. Steve Kennedy took about is feeling the feelings that his family didn't believe him. And the feeling that you'll so call a conspiracy theory and that's where I feel like it's really important that people know about people's experiences because it's evident Eric stand to read it and to see so and I think people have those fears speaking out but when you can see in black and white that this is a reality questions conspiracy. Just get moving on from that as well. Because it's not only just the corporations who've involved and you mentioned a number of other companies have been poked as well accused of spying on their star form or the workforce the police have also been. This is an arm of the state is also been involved in this timeline. If I want to stretch the bit that we're all shocked when you say is sometimes it's very obvious. Waiting INFORMATION COMES FROM. It's from a manager on a building so complained about the two when it's off complained about my anti white. She's outside information kits.

How does the law define public order like Define Odor and when we see a guess particularly now around the environment where we see big business so resistant to making changes that are going to support order through an. We'll have the environment the biggest questions being asked around. What's what's more what's more important super temporary fixes or the bigger the bigger fix. This is your first documentary. It's alright was easy for you to get funding. Tricky as a filmmaker. How did you find it yet? I'm so I went with them. City projects in Cape Parker who produced the phone and she was really fantastic working to fundraise. We got funding from the Arts Council maliciously but then from that regard funding number smooth trusts and love donations from trade unions and individuals. So it wasn't easy to get the funding and so two was a learning prices. Well it's the first feature film at eight and I guess when you don't have other films behind you. People aren't as willing to support but I think part of the process of funding fundraising associate community building and building audiences. One of the things we promised with when people funded or nations that we would allow them to screen the film. So that's how intensive arranging community screenings. Are you pleased with Helms turned out? Yeah I think I suppose I didn't set out as I introduced myself to Davis and my grand smooth short filmmaking and I wasn't setting out to make conventional document tree and I think one of the politics behind that is to have multiple voices and not have this traditional innovates. I think because a lot of it's quite complex on the legal case to try and bring in multiple voices and to raise questions at different points in the film folks input season. I personally love the film What I love about way is that is precisely because Lucy's and all I am not a documentary filmmaker and things very obvious because documentary. Filmmaker wouldn't have might've failed me in any way shape or form me my favorite sayings when George Fuller Personal Lucy's talk about beginning. He's doing the washing up these These kitchen Or there's a bit where Paper Barbecue and and and until that stuff. It's just it's that stuff that makes his look human robbed just looking at Coke's in big machinery and if the only thing we can ever talk about is Is is blacklisting human beings families and it's that bit I think the emotional poll brings us in an unnatural. I really think it works funded question for both of you what you need see. What's next I'm starting to have conversations with people around the undercover police inquiry which is starting to evidence this year and we'll be hearing this next year as well so I met this early stages of working out if I will make a film about it but I feel committed to the course this undercover policing where they actually went on to come in various activists and actually had Richard Sherman yet so it's really wide reaching and the two women that speaking solidarity were to women are in relationships within the police to it into a police inquiry and the Dave with the Butler support group family justice campaigns environmental campaigns trade union. So it's it's huge in it skirt which is quite problematic. Not Waste but it was really interesting in hoping together. Lots of different experiences. It starting to doesn't fifteen. That's right. Isn't it yet? Centuries a million sets it going two thousand fifteen so already. It's been a really long process in the thing that I'm kind of most interested in a moment is a public inquiry ass and tries to represent and the problems of public inquiries as well and typically as a state run activity and viewed Dave. What's next well? I'm actually a call participant in this undercover police public inquiry loose. Who's just been token about some of the undercover? Police officers was own. Trade Unions One of them is nine. He went on new mall custody. He was a cop and so It was in the same union as me. I went to pick with him. I went to meetings with a May even rain. One of the safety canopy and is in ministry and years later we found who's actually an undercover police officer and his real name was Mop Jenner and he lived a woman on new for us. What Simon told me was already married. So yeah that's You know we talked about. Is there anything shocking KONTA stuff? He's very very shocking. And it's going on nine because this is the police and appreciate during. This is taxpayers money being spent on that GONNA staff. And that's what I find outrageous an an as Lucy said these public inquiry has been going on. It was five years ago and it hasn't heard any evidence yet and fellow of us and our speaker universities across the country And I've recently spoke in Glasgow to a group of free hundred students and asked them if any of them had heard of this stuff about undercover police and at three hundred two people the hand up so so some people listen to your protocol. Smart. I've heard it. I don't think the vast majority of the British public I've heard about which is well. We can't push them because comes back to this thing before people still think that things are happening this country and it clearly does. It's important to understand the big picture of it and how it operated systemically completely end as someone who was followed on delays and. He's very very good friends with a lot of the women ride long-term relationship licenses for the police officers. Everyone in the media is when I talked to. Us is always interested in a tell us your human interest story which is important. I mean it is shocking. What happened but if it's only about human interest you miss the big political page. Which is the facts of the study is systematically doing this not is not Rome. This still doing it to this guy and they basically spa in on anyone.

The Zimbabwean Mastermind: Paul Le Roux
"In early two thousand nine thirty. Six Year Old Paul Roux was just beginning to branch out from pharmaceuticals into into more ambitious criminal. Ventures larue was high on his own power but he was also getting paranoid. That paranoia was making him distrust. Trust even is most seasoned employees like Call Center Manager Moran Oz as had no idea that he'd somehow run afoul of Larue. In fact all signs pointed to Larue liking him after ause arrived in Manila larue drove him out to the coast in his own. BMW AM W on the way they stopped at McDonald's for breakfast. Oz knew that larue was a rich man but he wasn't surprised by the breakfast choice. In in fact is was more surprised that larue actually treated him usually win. Larousse employees met him at restaurants he would only order food for himself so their next stop was the Subic Bay Yacht Club where larue paid in advance for houses hotel room. Oz would stay here overnight tonight and then meet the other employees as he headed out to the island of Seibu. The next morning is entered his hotel room that afternoon feeling buoyant. Not only was his boss having him oversee and expansion of his company are limited but he was finally treating is like a peer paying for his food in high end lodging of course as was wrong the entire story about building an Rx limited call center in Sibu had been in a trap now as was in the open ocean with a rifle pointed at him. After a few seconds of gunfire fire. Oz took a breath of relief. He wasn't hit a voice from ondeck shouted down at him. That was to frighten off the sharks. Don't think think I missed the next time will be for you. Dave Smith the talkative British man finally relaid Larousse orders from the satellite phone. When he told is confess and will kill you? Keep denying it and will wound you and leave you to the sharks. Your choice is wracked his brain. What could he possibly need to confess to? He insisted that he done nothing wrong. He hadn't stolen Dolan from the company he would never do anything without Larousse permission. Smith said something into the satellite phone Struggled to stay afloat while larue rude determined his fate after a few more tense moments. One of the muscular men climbed down the yachts ladder. And pulled is back on board is never knew what Larue said on the other end of that phone. Perhaps he only meant to scare him that day or perhaps as had managed managed to talk his way into a stay of execution when Smith brought is back to Subic Bay Yacht club he left him with one final warning. He said we are like an octopus. We have tentacles all over the world. You need to understand that we can reach you everywhere aware. Even in Israel you are not safe anywhere. The following day larue picked up is to bring him back to Manila as got into the car hesitantly. He didn't know what to expect from his volatile boss but his ride with Larue was his only way back home to Israel Summoned the courage to ask why he'd been taken hostage and tortured larue shrugged. He claimed to know nothing about the incident but he also showed no signs of surprise or concern. Instead he told is that he couldn't be held responsible for what is partners might do he said you. Don't want to deal with these guys. They will find you do whatever they say this. This was emblematic of how larue like to handle as business. He rarely solved problems personally. Preferring to issue commands from his phone or laptop up he controlled the action from afar like he was playing a video game like he was God larue also like to use mixed signals and subterfuge fused to keep his employees off balance. No single person ever knew how their role fit into the larger operation and they never knew how larue through really felt about them lose. Employees were doing a wide variety of work all over the world from fielding customer service calls in Israel L. Transporting gold in the Congo to scouting real estate in the Philippines to assembling a militia in Somalia but despite their different skill assets. They all had similar impressions of their mysterious boss. One of Larousse. fixers tim them back as best described Larue as a constant threatening threatening presence he said it was almost like the guy never slept and you never knew which personality you get on the other end when he called he never said who he was but you knew it was him sometimes calm and other times irate and most of the time you never even knew why when Larousse employees finally met him. They didn't know what to expect because there were no photos of him on the Internet but the first thing they noticed was his size is he was white about six feet tall with an enormous girth. The source of Laura's girth wasn't a mystery. He was known to favour fast. Food food like Domino's McDonalds at his desk rather than going out to eat a steak in most aspects of life he prioritized efficiency over quality. He usually dressed in a T.. Shirt cargo shorts and flip flops. The effect was disarming. One employee said nobody has ever thought the the first time they met him that he runs global criminal Empire Larousse accommodation's reflected that as well. He owned a series of high. End condos in Manila Hilla. But all of them were mostly unfurnished aside from couch bid and television but they ran up unusually high electricity bills. That's that's because of course he was constantly running fleets of servers. We're larue was casual about his home and clothing he. He was obsessive about his computer setup. He worked off an ancient laptop operating Microsoft software over ten years. Old sounds announce counter intuitive but he preferred this setup because he was able to fully encrypt the entire hard drive the moment he closed the lid of the laptop laptop the contents would be unreachable by any outsider. Programming and encryption had preoccupied larue since his youth in fact act computers were his. I love Paul was born on December. Twenty Fourth Nineteen Seventy two in Bulawayo Rhodesia Asia today known as Zimbabwe as a child a relative said that larue quote was fought over. Everyone wanted him. Our grandparents grandparents worship the ground. He walked on when he was a teenager. Larousse family moved to South Africa in search of better education larue resented and having to learn Afrikaans. The local language spoken in school. He felt superior to his classmates referring to them as halfwits and and morons his elevation came in his first computer. As soon as Laura realized he could build entire worlds in code worlds were governed by his rules he was hooked. One of Larousse Cousins Remembers Teenage Larue as quote completely antisocial Dole. Every time we went there he was always hold up in his room. I remember going in and seeing lines and lines of numbers on the screen and it didn't take Kim long at all to figure out how coating could start bringing in money illegally of course in nineteen eighty nine. The police leased showed up at Laura's Johannesburg home and arrested the sixteen year old for selling pornography in these early days before the Internet it appeared heared larue had revolutionized pornography distribution by going digital but the specifics to his operation. Remain Murky to this day. What we do know for sure was that Paul's parents were appalled but he himself just laughed? When Larue retold this story with with a plumbing pride he would recall how silly the entire situation seemed to him? Everyone would have praised him if he'd found a new method of selling books or Lennon's all this fuss just because his commodity was porn chip as long as Larue was making money. He didn't care what he was selling and even as a teenager he didn't care about breaking the law he didn't care about exploiting others later on that instinct would have disastrous stress results. Not just for larue himself. But also for his employees and the entire country of the United States
Packers vs. Patriots Preview: Who has the edge?
"Doing you? Right. That is the biggest game of the year LSU coming out number three in the right game in one. And that's all great. But if they don't win Saturday. It means nothing we know that as crimson tide has won the last seven over LSU. So this week is a big game. If they lose to Alabama. There's no way a to lock LSU tiger team in the college playoff. So it's going to be a big game this Saturday, and they need to pull this off. Rouge the fans they are waiting for this this game all season. Out of the lights and death valley and one of the toughest places to play. Does that lets you have enough offense to keep up? That's my question. That that's a big question. Joe borough. The last two outings has been so if you wanna say, but the biggest thing that I think that they can't do is they need to pound the ball. They're running the ball at sixty one percent and thirty one percent passing. And this year's Alabama's defense isn't as style as they usually are upfront. So it's not the people Nick Sabin defense that you're used to seeing. But I think they compound that ball with with Lear if they can just pounded away ship it away. It's going to be a physical matchup defensively. But if they can control the off line in those trenches in those three four, you know, you know, seven yard run here. And there that might open up from passing yards for Joe boroughs that, you know, just think Jefferson down a streak or oppose corner. Outer front. One. Ball will be key on offense versus the tide every team in the country of one loss or LSU fans on Saturday because that if LSU wins that throws everything into chaos, and that opens it up for a whole bunch of teams. Yeah. That that really does that puts Georgia out of it because I still see Alabama. Here with one loss, but that's shake up the whole college playoff. It depends on what Notre Dame will do. Clemson. I think Clinton will probably finish out the season undefeated as well. So it'll it'll shake up things but LSU would elite punch they're kicking in the college playoff. That's that's thought we care about. I love coach when he was out here coaching USC here in Los Angeles. He was the defensive line coach Pete Carroll years and mad. I used to interview him once a week. I understood about half of what he said would that Cajun accent? So I just I he could have been saying Dave Smith is a jackass now would have been nodding my head saying, yes, sir. I agree with you. I love coach. Oh, he's my favorite person in college football. Yeah. He's he's one of the great ones when I got down the bed ruse, I'm from Chicago. So it was a total coaches shocking that an accident is very hard. Transcribing interviews is not fun at times in the news. But he's a great guy. Great motivator. He's always out in the community. He does radio show told me your, Vince. So that's what I like about him. He's a player coach and coach among the people you can walk up to him and just say, hi and you'll have a conversation with yourself. He wanted to go with in college football. He told me once I don't have an accent. You do that's what he said to me. Yeah. That sounds like, oh, he's he's he's he has some great joke. He will snap back at you. What would what some great joke? So be prepared to come with me when you felt down. But when they lost the Troy last year, there weren't even run them out of town. They were gonna fire him. Now. Look at him top three in the country and a chance for a national championship. Yeah. It's been a total one eighty was on a hot seat. Even in the beginning of the year. Don't want expecting difficult seventy one and everybody was saying, hey, if he doesn't do it this year, then you know, we need to move on. But again, he believes in those fifteen Bettine believed that themselves, and you know, as far as the SEC, we know it's Alabama Georgia. Everyone was county out and for them to have this excess in bringing back the prominence of the Tigers. Is it's been a great atmosphere van Roos right now you look at the quarterback in Alabama. You know, it's almost unfair. Nick saban's usually has a game manager at Alabama. Now, he's got a superstar quarterback. They're scoring fifty and sixty points a game to go along with all those athletes and the accuracy that the kid is incredible he special, but but Aaron he hasn't faced adversity yet. So let's see if he gets behind a little bit or if things aren't going well against LSU on Saturday. That's that's the key. He hasn't even played fourth quarter yet. That was. Is that he hasn't played a fourth quarter. So if they can get some pressure on we know they're missing Devon white Devon white. But the first half of the biggest thing is forcing pressure fourth mistake. He has to make a turnover you gotta get moving them out of pocket. Maybe get him comfortable LSU LSU. To figure out a way to out. So. Defense needs to find a way that that's what it comes down to find a way crying it out. It's going to be a bad on that
