"I hate pollution. You know and I like to see pollution taken care of but I don't like false information. I like you know the scare tactics of the world's coming to an end in twelve years and therefore we have to give up all our liberties that does that doesn't make take a whole lot of sense but right now the the new green deal The green new deal when they they're real they want spent trillions of dollars just just to distance eliminated anything that produce. Co Two that means and this is. This was meant to be a joke. But it's almost doing what the you know. We produce you C O two two. Yeah what they're talking about. You know euthanasia. I know more than they're totally nuts on on some of the boat wrote this whole thing. I saw some good report on this because I believed it and they said if you spent these trillions of dollars nobody knows how it probably wouldn't work work but let's say it. Did they spend five hundred dollars and they get rid of all the co two we would be so impoverished. I mean there could be hardly anything going on on but guess what we produce fifteen percent of the co two in the world and guess who produces all the rest or most of the rest in that is third world countries China Indian particular so if we destroy our industry where's ended industry go. Do you think they're gonNA stop and we'll we'll be able to fight a world war. You're and teach them how to control their environment distributes over and there's a massive increase in co two if they even even had the the more success they have here for cutting down industry and producing CEO to the more you if you do if you're successful. The more businesses are going to go to China and India no screaming all we need more sanctions. You know all that nonsense around around it goes but you know the we talk about that. We have a lot of good progressive allies and friends. And they're concerned about the environment and they're also antiwar so we understand that but there are a lot of people on the left who go on and on about environmentalism the left Authoritarians of but they won't say word about war. You know they don't was the very little look at someone like Al Gore. You know the big environmentalist. Well he presided over a lot. A lot of stuff as vice president the attack on Yugoslavia all kinds of bombings and sedan. No word about that you know. The the Pentagon is one of the biggest polluters lueders if you're against pollution if you're worried about. Co Two year should be focused on the Pentagon the Pentagon emissions. This is something I a statistic. I pulled up from two thousand one to two thousand seventeen the Pentagon emitted seven hundred sixty six million metric tons of co two million metric tons of CO two. But you know even if If you dealt with this in general and you worked we need less war because it'll be less pollution then there's a lot more to it than C o two since his that. That's a big controversy. But but think of the other benefits that come I'm from Agent Orange bombs dropping out of the sky and drones. Come out now. They're even talking about militarising space sort of you. You know. Pretty wild idea. That's going to cost a couple of dollars to and and I guess that'll be a limitation on what we can do because eventually We can't even afford to to keep people Find find a system that provides homes for poor people and living out on the streets. Because we've given up on the principles of liberty so that that's it's not going to be the solution and but there's a lot more to it than the military creating co two. These burn pits has a lot. They have medical products that they're burning and I asked somebody recently. who had been over there? They still you know it was. We knew more heard more about when activity when we were very react militarily. Oh no he he's they said that's garbage and they burn it still Still exposing our people to it because we have to supervise you know the these burn pits. Yeah here's a couple of other interesting things on the topic of the military pollution. The Dod Defense Department the largest oil consuming government body in the world case to do a lot four hundred thousand barrels of oil a day or consumed by the Pentagon in peacetime four hundred thousand barrels. That's that's equal to the entire energy consumption of Greece every day so the other thing. The army calculated it would burn twenty million gallons is a fuel in the first three weeks of combat in Iraq war to that equals the entire gasoline used by all of the allies in world. War Two just in those first three weeks in Iraq Iraq and the other thing that we have to put up with we. We shouldn't put up with him on purpose but to hypocrites you know. Do you mentioned Gore. He he has. He flies her on an end jet airplanes. What about what about Hollywood those individuals Preaching this and and you know maybe here and there have a good point but they lose all credibility because they don't follow it it's the same way with Policies that create homelessness and wiping out of the middle class and they They endorse the idea that you should have no border controls at all. But but then they're gated communities. That's not where the US go. There's such hypocrites you know that That should embarrass him but believe me. It doesn't embarrass them. They figure well we're obligated to take care of our sales and I don't know what their motivation is to destroy. Sometimes when I'm in a mood to give an excuse is just plain ignorance stupidity and not an understanding on the how freedom works and how the markets work and how important. It is to have individualism rather than collectivism activism. Collectivism is engulfing the world right. Now what we're doing this country is if you belong to a group you know you're you're not an individual you're part what about collective and that that to me is a real bad situation force absolutely well if you if you care about the environment like Dr Paul and I both do I see out there. Walking all the time you want to clean air. We all do fight war that that is a that is a destruction of the environment. The other thing that I would say this is the final final week to get. Are you worried about bankruptcy. We're all worried about bankruptcy. We'll dock Kepala. Got It all in his new many book.

"dod defense department" Discussed on Post Reports
"From the newsroom, the Washington Post. Washington. The Washington Ellen Nakashima with Washington. This is post reports I'm Marteen powers. Thursday, April eleventh. Today, Julian Assange is arrested in London the Asian Americans overlooked in the affirmative action debate and a historic opera performance. This is journalism. It's called conspiracy. It's conspiracy to commit journalist. So this has to end, and we urge everybody to support. Yuliana? Sounds into in-fighting detects tradition. Julian Assange is in Australian hacker who's the founder of WikiLeaks national security reporter, Ellen Nakashima has been covering the arrest of WikiLeaks, founder, Julian Assange, P founded the organization to expose secrets that can help shine a light on on abuses. He's gotten secret and classified documents from sources all over the world police have sought to arrest Assange for years ever since he refused to cooperate with Swedish officials investigating him for sexual assault. That investigation was closed in two thousand seventeen but Assange remained wanted by British authorities for jumping bail and all that time. He voided capture by claiming asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in London but on Thursday, he was victim. And immediately arrested by London police asandra lawyer. Argued that he was being prosecuted in retribution for publishing classified information. Since two thousand and ten we've warned that join us on would face prosecution extradition to the United States. He's publishing titties WikiLeaks. Unfortunately today, we've been proven rise. So the US requested that he be extradited. What is he being extradited four so shortly after his arrest? The Justice department unsealed an indictment which stated from March twenty eighteen and that indictment shows one count single count of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion or basically to hack a computer. And in this case, it refers to a classified DOD defense department computer that contained information at a classified level, relating to the military military activities. So what he's being indicted for now is about that twenty ten release of of military documents. This indictment is in relation to the twenty ten WikiLeaks releases nothing to do with in interference or release of information related to the twenty sixteen presidential election. So why is the US requesting his extradition? Now prosecutors had wanted for years to try to make a case against Assange. But at least under the Obama administration, the Justice department had been reluctant to to bring charges against a song for fear of running into some prosecutors time called in York Times problem or making the case that charging him with publishing classified information, the same theory could also be applied to save the New York Times or the Washington Post, which would then make difficult. Some let's say for them not to prosecute say than a newspaper for publishing classified information and Assange WikiLeaks, his his lawyers press advocates were strenuously arguing that charging Assange for publishing classified information or leaked information could set a bad precedent for. Freedom of the press. And would mean that they were going down the road of, you know, opening prosecutions of a traditional journalistic organizations interesting. So that if in theory, if Assange was charged for releasing this information than any journalist who obtains classified documents and releases them saying that it's part of the public good that they could theoretically be prosecuted as well. The that that was that's certainly the argument that Assange is making continuing to make there was enough of of belief inside the Justice department at the time that that would be a challenge that they refrained from him from bringing charges. However, what's interesting in this indictment is that the charge is actually conspiracy to to hack. It's not a classical receipt of classified information or they call national defense information type of charge, which is what you norm. Maly see in these sorts of cases. And I think that was done in an effort to try to get around that press freedom defense, and that's what we'll we'll see this is going to play out over the next month. Or even years. You say that this indictment is specifically about that obtaining of information twenty ten those those military documents classified military documents that ended up released to the public. But we've also been hearing a lot about WikiLeaks and its role in releasing hacked emails from the DNC and John Podesta in two thousand sixteen is there an expectation that if Assange is extradited comes back to the US that there could be more prosecution related to what happened in two thousand sixteen. My understanding is that right now the Justice department basically has sixty days to put together an extradition package and submitted to the UK authorities through the state depar-. Moment and whatever is in that extradition package. Whatever charges are in that package are what it will have to bring Assange to trial on it can't bring him back to the United States on computer hacking charges, and then slap a murder charge against him, for instance. So if we don't see charges relating to the twenty sixteen elections coming up in the next sixty days, or so I don't think you'll see that become part of his prosecution. From what you're hearing. Is there a sense that that is possible that there could be more charges coming in those in the next couple of months? We don't know for sure there might be we're looking into that right now to see if there are any additional charges, though case to be made a with respect to twenty sixteen again is typical because of the journalistic organizations issue, and you if were prosecutor want to try to avoid I think having to get over that hump that defense where you're going to be forced to try to make the distinction between a WikiLeaks and a journalistic organization like the Washington Post. What do you expect to see next in this case, I length the extradition process that could take at least a year, probably more. There have been other cases in the past that went. Ten years thirteen years before finally being resolved. One computer hacking case was went ten years before the authorities decided that the hacker Gary McKinnon should not be extradited to the US the US lost on that one. There have been other cases than bulbs a high profile terrorist suspects where after thirteen years, the thirties agreed to extradite the defendant to the United States. So this isn't something that's going to be settled in the next few weeks. Olympic you so much. Thank you.
