Biden's Press Conference Gets Panned: 'Catastrophic'
"Now somebody in The White House is sitting around saying it was a good thing that we didn't have many press conferences for Joe Biden. Holy cow. Did you see that Titanic of a press conference yesterday? Now, tell me the truth. How much would you have paid? How much would you have given to be sitting in a room watching Biden's catastrophic press conference yesterday on his one year anniversary of this disastrous administration? How much would you have paid to sit in a room and watch the press conference with president Donald Trump? How much fun would that have been? To watch the press conference with Trump because he's got to be sitting down there in Mar-a-Lago saying my gosh look what this country has
'The Diversity Delusion' Author Heather Mac Donald on Young Americans' Move to the Left
"So Heather, I want to ask you about the study from axios that I'd love to get your commentary on it. The essence is that it shows that young people are going far to the left and they're not basically staying. And they're not conservative as conservatives prior generations. What would you attribute this to? You talk about this a lot in the diversity delusion. You talk about the several dynamics that come into play. How would you explain this? Well, it's a combination of overt ideology and prosperity. Decades decades, decades in America of stable society, limited government, extraordinary conquest of poverty, want disease, premature death, and young people have absolutely no idea what the west has accomplished to make their lives so, so cushy and so opportunity filled, but then of course that's the background and the more overt politicization is coming from the elite classes in the education establishment. And that are dedicated to tearing down the west that are filled with anti white hatred. They hate a civilization being too white and male. And they're very few competing voices. The establishment, you know, in the 50s, the establishment used to be viewed as conservative. And indeed, it often was the American bar association, the American medical association. These institutions were regarded as guardians of traditional bourgeois norms, respect for property, respect for the rule of law. And now they are almost indistinguishable from Brown university or Yale University or Harvard in their dedication to this phony ideology that says the white white supremacy and white racism is the defining characteristic of American
A Troubling Trend Facing the Future of America
"Girls age 27 and 30 living in California. I can attest to the fact that the supply of quality eligible men is in short supply. Not for the lack of offers. My girls are not married. But sure would like to be. Married with kids and WK. Is that what that means? I've never seen that acronym before. I would love for their status to change, but a whole bunch of men do not have the same goals, lack ambition and are looking for either a someone to support them in every sense of the world or be a good time no more. I see that a lot. I see the feminization of the American male, where the woman, the female has to basically babysit the man, you see in this Conor? And it creates super unhappy women and also women have to become masculine, that's what college does is it creates basically tells these women, you should go succeed in the corporate world and order to do so you have to become super masculine, which also means you're going to become miserable. I mean, just the way it is. And some women, you know, end up liking it. Most women don't, honestly, and the entire kind of trajectory that we have is one that unfortunately instills weakness in men and unhappiness in women. So the brookings institution actually wrote about this. They were left wing think tank. And they talked at length about America's electoral future, the coming generational transformation. Says demographics are not destiny, but steady and predictable changes to the electorate play an important role in defining the landscape of American politics. And it talks about here that homeownership is going down. That having children is going down and marriage rates are going down. That inherently creates a more left wing society or a more Democrat society or a socialistic society when you have 33 year old women with college degrees and they're 33 years old and they don't have children and they're not married. What do you expect when all of a sudden there is a political party that comes out and says we can reappropriate the money we can redistribute the money I should say? It's rather appealing. And this is something
The Rich Get Richer While the Poor Get Poorer
"Producer Connor for example. Producer Connor is going to be our test case. I think did I mention this on air before? Maybe I did. So producer Connor got poorer this last year. Now he's going to use this as an advocating for a race, but I'll bring that, that's a separate conversation. How did producer Connor get poorer? Producer Connor what your mid 20s, right? Mid 20s works hard gets in early does a great job. He's 25. So he's right there. He is right on the chart. Andrew says we actually gave him a raise. Okay, it was an inflation adjusted race. But here's what's important. Listen, producer Connor got poorer. His rent went up by $600 a month. Is that correct, Connor? $600 a month. That means he has to pay 600 extra dollars a month, $7200 a year to live in the same place that he lived last year. So in order to just tread water in order for Connor just to stay the same, he has to earn an extra $600 a month just to break even. Whereas I have a mortgage. And my mortgage rate is fixed. And that doesn't go up. So I borrowed my mortgages can make a lot of sense, makes really conservative. Money. And therefore I become I'm fit in and it doesn't change mortgage payments, you could have a fixed rate, you could have a floating rate, but most are fixed. I actually am getting richer. The value of my home goes up, my payment stays the same, which actually goes down because the currencies inflated. So Connor the renter gets poorer, Charlie, the owner gets richer. I'm not trying to rub it in your face Conor. I'm just using you as an example. It's true. Your rulers betrayed you.
John Zmirak: We Are Fighting Off a Public Health Dictatorship
"It. Obviously, Donald Trump and Franklin Graham people that I would generally agree with on many things, they are saying people should get the vaccine. Of course, they're not in favor of vaccine mandates. But that's kind of where we are right now. Thankfully, the Supreme Court struck down Biden's outrageous overreach, trying to get every company in America that has a hundred and more employees mandate the vaccine. I don't know what's what's the biggest news. You know, because people say, it's so great that it was struck down then I think to myself, the idea that it had to be struck down. The idea that it was floated by this administration is just astonishing to me. Yeah, we are fighting off the imposition of a public health dictatorship. And here's the sort of logic point, a little chunk of logic, I think you should hurl in people's faces. Currently the law of the land is that privacy is such a sacred American right that a woman can abort her 9 month fetus at will. But if she wants to eat at TGI Fridays, she has to show the hostess her vaccine passport. Riddle be that Batman. It's simply
Jack Brewer Explains Why He Became a Donald Trump Supporter
"I'm watching Fox News this afternoon. And it's the Martha McCollum show, and she has a former NFL football player on named brewer. What's his first name? Jack brewer. And the following exchange takes place. I mean, I was ostracized. I was called names. I mean, my family was targeted. Just because I supported Donald Trump. And since then, it's like more and more people have continued to start to support the things that Donald Trump stands for. But more specifically, the things that people that are seeking righteousness stand for. And I think the educational process is continuing for so many Americans. And I think this COVID-19 pandemic has exposed exactly what's going on with our government and not getting after the root cause. People want you to get at the root cause of issues. And the root cause of issues, particularly when it comes to minorities and African Americans is fatherlessness. And Democratic Party policies excuse me, are the ones that are at the root of this, they promote it. They don't stand against it, and I think people in this nation see that. They want our children all to love this country and love America.
New York Times Runs Crap Piece, Claiming Tension Between DeSantis and Trump
"My friend reads The New York Times call my attention to this front page peach about tension between Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis It's by time stalwart's Maggie haberman and Jonathan Martin who don't know crap Who probably had a lot of fun writing it They report that Trump had become unhappy with desantis because the Florida governor won't say he'd step aside if as seems likely Trump decides to run for president in 2024 How many here believe that if Trump runs in 24 Desantis would challenge him Zero According to the times Trump believes he says what justification I think that he put desantis on the map From this Trump concludes without justification I think I'm just reading what he wrote That desantis should not stand in the way of the former president's future political ambitions Trump hasn't yet blasted desantis by name but he ripped gutless politicians who dives the question of whether they've been vaccinated against COVID fearing blowback from vaccine skeptics desantis hasn't said whether he's received anti COVID shots The answer is yes Trump said an interview last month but they don't want to say it because they're gutless and so forth He says I agree with Trump Governors who have been vaccinated should say so to reassure the public the vaccine is safe governors are rejected Out of safety or other concerns should share those concerns with their
Washington Examiner: Jan. 6 Panel Floats 14th Amendment to Bar Trump From Holding Office
"And then there's this January 6th panel floats Fourteenth Amendment as a way to far Trump from holding off Now this is really ridiculous but we'll go on here Washington examiner neither of Donald Trump's impeachment trials led to his conviction which would have prevented him from returning to The White House representative Jamie Raskin remember I told you about his father Who was a red Who defended the Soviet Union North Korea Cuba Communist China institute for policy studies But Raskin is another idea on how to bar the former president Raskin suggested the constitutional provision preventing those who quote engaged in insurrection or rebellion unquote from holding office may prevent Trump from becoming president for a second non consecutive
Sen. Tim Kaine Has a Lot to Say About Prosecuting Donald Trump
"Tim Kane said it's up to the prosecutors at the justice burn where the charge Trump though he believes the former president's actions want to be for January 6th likely violated federal law No they didn't He is supposed to be a moderate but he's a whack job They have all the evidence at their disposal he said Now how do you know that A lot going on behind the scenes of you and I do not know Cain believes federal prosecutors are looking seriously at charges against Trump although he doesn't have any insight information My intuition is that they're looking carefully whether Trump broke the law my sense is they're looking at everything in a diligent way and they haven't made a decision What is he talking about Does he know something I believe there are federal statutes that are very much implicated by Trump overturn Biden's victory in the 2020 election It is really grotesque to hear people who sought to overturn the 2016 election Every breathing moment of that administration Are now making these allegations these
Mark Levin: 2016 Was the Year the Democrats Went to War With Our Electoral System
"But when it comes to transitioning from one president to another They have pointed Donald Trump all I want They can point to January 6th all they want But it's 2016 you need to look at 2016 That was when in full view of the entire world the Democrat party went to war With our electoral system now they've gone to war with it before But this is the modern incarnation of it It was 2016 They spawned a criminal investigation multiple efforts had impeachment co efforts the Democrat party and Congress working with the Democrat party in the executive branch working with career individuals Democrats who resisted the transition Trump was caught in a legitimate president He was called Putin's president He was called many things And they questioned that election Last time I checked 2016 came before 2020 They didn't go to federal courts during the course of the election or after To challenge Trump's presidency oh yeah the emoluments clause and other things to try and destroy Trump But I'm talking about challenging systems or votes Like others did in 2020 a legitimate path now they decided they controlled the House of Representatives They were going to use the impeachment clause the way no House of Representatives has ever used it before
Abrams Treads Carefully in Relationship With Biden
"Regarding Stacey Abrams, the failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate skipping the Georgia speech. Here's what they said about this on morning Joe and morning Joe of course, I'm not sure what he is now. He certainly was a Republican House member, but has moved steadily to the left and has been a harsh critic of Donald Trump. Here's what he said about Stacey Abrams, skipping the Georgia speech by Joe Biden. I mean, politicians show up with presidents when they have 52% approval ratings. Politicians don't show up with presidents when their approval ratings may be in the 30s in a state where they are. There's another reason. Are you getting the tires rotated? And right now in the middle of COVID, that's kind of hard. I just don't know. I would say this about whatever. This is politics one O one. I find it fascinating and it speaks less to stay Stacey Abrams that really does than it does when she perceives Joe Biden's political standing to be in the state of George right now. That she's not showing up in an event that was custom made for her.

Andy Ngo: Democrat Political Operatives Pressured AT&T to Drop One America News
"So this is their largest distributor It's carried the channel since April 2017 And I don't think it's a surprise that this is going on Now that the Democrats control The White House and Congress and left to celebrate the news as oan has long been under fire for its open support of former president Donald Trump Well there you go Now there's tens of millions of us You can cripple DirecTV Now the question is whether you're going to Whether you're going to cut them off or just complain about this And more than that whether you're going to tell other family members and friends and colleagues cut them off And in October 2021 report Reuters noted how the OAN's founder chief executive Robert herring had testified That AT&T executives were the inspiration to launch the conservative network AT&T executives were the inspiration They told us they wanted a conservative network He said in a 2019 deposition according to Reuters According to journalist Andy no NGO excellent journalist Political operative group operating on behalf of Democrats took credit for putting pressure on direct TV to drop the conservative channel So what I'm talking about exactly what I'm talking about A political
FBI Under Fire for Claiming Texas Synagogue Attack Wasn’t Related to Anti-Semitism
"You look at what just happened as well in Texas there over the weekend. And the horrific hostage event that was rooted in anti semitism and this terrorist that flew all the way from the UK to come here to terrorize these poor people, the FBI actually had the audacity to claim that the Texas hostage situation was not specifically targeting Jews. I mean, who was a targeting men for goodness sakes? I mean, this is an Islamic from man who, yes, I get it. He's crazy, right? And his family said he suffered from mental health issues, of course. Anybody who's doing any of this stuff is crazy. But the fact is, is that that mental health problem was also rooted in this anti semitism, which frankly was perhaps inspired. I mean, let's just be honest here inspired from a religion that really doesn't like people that aren't like them. I mean, this is what the Ayatollah, professors, and death to America and death to Israel and then this guy who's yes, clearly crazy, but adopts it and the fact that the FBI said and I'm going to quote here, we do believe from our engagement with the subject that he was singularly focused on one issue and it was not specifically related to the Jewish community, I'm sorry that it's like the FBI is trying to give him an excuse. And we can't give any more excuses for this. The antisemitism and the anti americanism that's out there is out of control and yet we've tolerated it. We've allowed it for goodness 6. We've got lawmakers who actually are out there kind of promoting this. Let's be clear, Ilhan Omar. Do you remember when she said it's all about the benjamins? Remember that was clearly clearly an anti semitic dig. And that, that's tolerated, like this woman is allowed to say things like this.
Twitter Bans Account Linked to Iran's Supreme Leader Over Trump Assassination Threat
"Let's turn now to Twitter, which finally got around to suspending an account linked to Iran's supreme leader over the weekend. This is according to a report out of a French press agency argente France press, which set on Saturday that the account referenced quote has been permanently suspended for violating our ban evasion policy according to a Twitter. Spokesperson. So, good. Okay, good, but really it took this long and basically the reason it happened this time was because the supreme leaders account promoted a video depicting the assassination of former president Trump. Okay, good. Okay guys, like finally, but think of all the bad things he did in the interim. I mean, I guess I just don't understand why it took this long and why on earth, the president of the United States, when he was a sitting president actually suffered from getting his own account
Hillary Vs. Donald 2.0: Are the Democrats Gluttons For Punishment?
"First off, let's start off with this idea, and I know it's going to make you cringe of Hillary to point, oh, come on, come on, come on, right? I mean, it's really, I think evidence of just how badly organized the Democrat party is. Really and truly because they have no bench. They have no one to go to Kamala was supposed to be the shining star. Good luck with that one. Kamala has managed to alienate everyone and doesn't really have any of the goods right to back up all her bravado. She's assigned things like the border and yet doesn't even go to the border. So Kamala is a total joke total disaster lowest ratings of anybody in recent history that's ever been a VP. And so the idea is what we go back to Hillary. Come. It's not just Hillary. They're talking about Hillary. Plus, Liz Cheney, as VP, I'm sorry. We've already had. We've already had a Cheney as a VP that didn't work out so well now did it. So a lot of people are talking about this. There was a big article written a prominent newspaper and now a former operative adviser to Bill Clinton is suggesting that he thinks that this could actually be something that's in the works. In fact, dick Morris has been quoted. This is the former adviser to Bill Clinton, is saying Hillary has set up a brilliant brilliant strategy that nobody else is able to do. And the worst Biden does, he says the better she does because she's positioned herself as the democratic alternative to Biden. I don't totally agree with that. I mean, hey, as a conservative, I should welcome that. You as a conservative should welcome that because Hillary has the ability to just alienate just about everyone, including a lot of people in the middle. I mean, that's why they went to Joe Biden, right? Because the thinking was, let's get somebody in there. That doesn't really completely totally you know what off everybody in the
"donald b" Discussed on The Psych Central Show
"Doctor massena is on the medical staff of suburban hospital, Johns Hopkins medicine. She wrote the book aftermath healing from the Trump presidency and is an expert on narcissism. Doctor Messina, welcome to the show. It's such a pleasure to be here, Gabe. I really delighted. We are delighted to have you now in the past several years whenever I do a show on narcissistic personality disorder, the guest will inevitably cite former president Trump as a textbook case during the show. However, this is the first time that a guest has written a book on the subject. Now, I know that using any public figure as an example of anything is going to polarize the audience. However, not every public figure has a following willing to attempt overthrowing the government at their suggestion. As an expert doctor Messina, have you found that your book steals focus from your work on narcissism? Well, I think sometimes I mean courage not to talk about president Trump. While he's a poster child, I have been in groups and they've asked me not to measure my book. So hopefully that answers your question. It does. It does answer the question. So let's start at the very beginning. Doctor Messina, what exactly is a narcissist? Okay, so narcissist and I don't know if there's healthy narcissism. There are people with narcissistic traits and there are people who have a narcissistic personality disorder. I would say Donald Trump is in the latter category. When people have a disorder, it's as if they're like an egg. On the outside of an egg on the shell, you could hit it with your finger, maybe something else feels pretty sturdy. Once you crack that, everything follows that. It oozes out. There's nothing left. And narcissists often talk about when you can get them to talk about it about feeling empty. So it's like when the egg is cracked, they sometimes fly under the radar though. And not when they're blatant as the former president or people like that. But some narcissists are most of them are very charming. They can be attractive and funny. But women narcissistically injures. In other words, when the egg does crack. That's when they're so internally or psychically bruised, people refer to narcissistic injuries often. Whether narcissistically injured, that's when the other side of them come out. And all of a defense has come out. In narcissism is characteristic of people who lack empathy. They don't really understand another person, nor do they care to try to figure out what another person is feeling. I knew somebody many years ago. And this wasn't my patient, but he was in treatment for many, many years. And he learned how to say the right things. If someone came home, he knew to say, oh, hi, how was your day? But he didn't really care. He would talk to me about it. He didn't really care. He just learned the right things that one is supposed to say, what is going to be in a relationship? But generally, relationships don't work out too well. Not equal relationships. They are really, really entitled. They think they deserve certain things and just because of who they are. It doesn't matter whether they are these things. They just think they're entitled entitled to whatever it is that they want. And when they don't get it, they often have this narcissistic injury, this crack. They lack accountability. They have a great need for control and on the other side of that coin is that they're very threatened when they lose control. They typically lie, are very grandiose. They are the best. The greatest and the best and I mean, we certainly know that the former president would talk about that often talked about himself as being great, wonderful. A very setting in rallies. Very manipulative, often haughty and arrogant. They have black and white thinking. It isn't a gray world with good and bad, which brings me an amazing defense of narcissists, which is projected with identification. But just to simplify, that means that they shift plans. It's never them. It's always somebody else. And we certainly saw that a lot in the last administration. One of the criticisms that always comes up when sighting a former president is, well, they all do it. They all do it. I must have seen this in my email a thousand times. Well, you're picking on this particular politician, but they're all narcissist. Now even in research for this show, I see that politicians are often listed as having narcissistic personality disorder or they're called narcissists and the media. What set Trump apart? Because I noticed that you didn't write a book called aftermath healing from any other administration. Yeah. There's no healing from the bush or Clinton or any other administration as you're right about that. I think because Donald Trump actually, as you pointed out, I mean, certainly there are theories about and I believe we did try to overthrow the government. But he's right on the money in terms of being a narcissist. If you look at every single descriptor, you'll find that Donald Trump does fit in the category of that description. However, I would like to say that there is a range in the narcissistic spectrum..
"donald b" Discussed on TFG Truth
"Just super bright, articulate, special, passionate. I mean, you name it. This guy, Byron Donald has it all. You've got to get online and see the clips of him. One of the things I couldn't help but think this whole idea of intent, right? Everything he sees, it's all about intent. This is an ignorance folks. This is the intent of the left to create this division. You've said it. President Biden, he ran on unity, bringing people together. We got to get nasty orange man. Trump out, you know, look at what he's done. All this discontent and violence and rioting, Joe's going to bring it all together. Has he brought it together in your opinion? No. And wait till this trial, this made air after the verdict because they're in deliberation right now. But if this doesn't go the way that CNN or MSNBC wanted to go, I believe we're going to have another major issue coming out here. And again, what's so frustrating for me is these people, they push this narrative. And again, it's doing a disservice to the communities. They say they're trying to help. Right, right? Right. Pushing on CNN and MSNBC that every white person is racist that doesn't agree with convicting this kid. I mean, our favorite joy Reed, right? She's a doozy that one. She, every day, she can't she can not be on the air without pushing racism towards all white folks. And it's unbelievable. And again, doing it's creating more racism. Absolutely. It's creating more hatred. It's creating more dissension in our country. And I thought, based on what they ran on over there, him and Kamala. This would all have gone away. I thought that I thought Trump was the reason that everybody was so racist in our country. Everybody hated each other on a country. It was all Trump's fault. Well, it's not going anywhere. It hasn't gone anywhere. And race has always been an issue, but over the last several decades, many decades, there's been so, so much improvement in that. And to the point where I think I grew up where I'm growing up and let's say the 70s 80s, I'm a child in the 70s 80s. I really didn't think much about race. I saw people. And I saw ability and talent and I just never felt like I'm worried about it. It just wasn't, it wasn't something I worried about. I didn't wake up thinking that way. But that's most people. Are there racists out there? Of course there are. Are there bad people out there? Of course, there are. We always say this. Are there doctors that overprescribe medication? Of course there are. Are there financial planners that steal people's money? Of course. But the greater majority of their cops that do things poorly, of course there are. It's a greater majority of all these groups are good people. America is not 99.9% racist, like you would think if you watch TV. It's just not the case. No. But they're turning. You said it. They're turning people into having more racist sort of tendencies, or they're just trying to turn people to say, oh, well, I don't want to approach these folks over here because I don't want them to think I'm racist or I don't want them to be afraid of me because of my skin color, my gender. So it's creating disunity exactly on both sides by the way on the outside. So it's creating issues. Absolutely. And divide and conquer. That's their goal. So again, a huge thank you to congressman Byron donalds, folks. We've had some really outstanding guests. Mike, thanks to you. You have a really great way about you to get these types of gas folks. And that's what we're all about..

"So she rolled her eyes. She was not happy with me, but you know, I don't care. Because the truth is, is that our country can not survive if people have to bend the knee to Evers in charge politically. Right. That's not what our country is based upon. And the very people they say they're trying to help would be the worst stricken by energy crises. If the danger hoods across the entire country suddenly had no power, no heat. No furnace is working. No washers and dryers working. They would be the ones that are suffering the most. So yeah, it's so disingenuous. I know we're up here. One quick thing I'll say. Paul Pelosi and Nancy Pelosi will not have a problem heeding their homes because I'm quite sure they have a solar panel array that Paul bill with all the money that he's made over the years. And God bless him. I don't care. Do you. But the truth of the matter is that if you don't have clean and consistent energy, if you don't have cheap inconsistent energy, poor people will suffer. 100% full stop. No doubt. And congressman, I think this leads into our next topic before we let you go. I just wanted to jump into the written house trial because I think both of these things we're talking about. The energy crisis, the written as trial, it's almost like that side, the Pelosi's the Schumer's, of course, AOC and the squad, they're full of good information. It seems like they don't look at any data or facts. And we can go into COVID on this too, right? Every piece of data in this written house trial, if you watched it, if you looked at it, shows, wait a minute. This is not a race situation. This is not even a question of self defense. It was self defense. Even the witnesses for the prosecution made it out that it was a self defense case, right? So go with the energy, too. The gas prices are skyrocketing. You can't fly planes on solar energy or electric, right? Why do they not? Why do they not look at these things? And again, is it intent? Are they just playing out intelligent? What is it? I'm firmly committed that they're trying to accomplish their policy agenda. Whether it's cultural, whether it's the political culture wars we're in, in other words, economic. They're committed to accomplishing their agenda. And anything that needs to be used to accomplish the agenda will be used. That is this Kyle rittenhouse situation. Now look, I'm going to talk about a lot of people about this. You know, I got friends who were like, man, what's he doing with an AR-15? Can I show you something to be there? Where is your mom? Where's your dad? Los Angeles. All that stuff. But people have these questions. Here's the reality. The reality is, is that the prosecution, frankly, has completely overcharged the situation because they're responding to the politics that were set by a narrative from the big from big media and from the Democrats. And the narrative that they wanted to set in 2020 is that America is irredeemably racist because of Donald Trump and that's why we need Joe Biden to be president. That was the narrative. That's what they tried to set out and set in stone. And so it didn't matter what the story was. You were going to be used to push that narrative. Kyle ray house falls into that category. You got a 17 year old white kid, in Kenosha, where they haven't, where they're having rise associated with the thing with Jacob Blake and things are burning..

"The 2020 presidential election had nothing to do with Democrat policy. It was all about all about Donald Trump and them having to restore our democracy or save our democracy and have faith in our institutions or whatever nonsense that they spewed. And it was about him not having a plan on COVID-19. That was the 2020 presidential election. No more no less. Joe Biden didn't run all policies. Joe Biden barely was barely to be seen. People are waking up to now in America. They're like, oh my gosh, we elected a man who was an incompetent who doesn't know what he's doing. And when he's supposed to have a plan on COVID, the reality is all he's doing is executing the Trump plan. And he's doing a bad job at that. So that's why he has to show he's doing something. That's why he jumps to these vaccine mandates, which are unconstitutional, by the way. And so I think what the 5th circuit just did is more to come. I was actually telling the SBA administrator because she was all like when we're looking forward to the vaccine manage to help get small businesses back on their feet. And I'm like, you don't know what you're talking about. Small business owners already have a problem finding employees. These vaccine mandates are only going to make it harder for them to find employees, which is going to further hurt our economy. But when you have somebody that doesn't know economics, but he's quote unquote in charge. This is what happens. And I think the worst part congressman is, it seems like it's not just him that doesn't know economics. His whole cabinet and his whole party don't know economics, right? You hear these people and then Joel will tell you, well you guys don't understand supply chain. No, no, no. We do. You don't, and that's why we keep having gas at, you know, I was down in Florida last week. I was paying almost $4 a gallon. That's worse than New York right now. And I can't believe that all over the country. I saw California, they were almost at $7 a gallon. That's a major problem. They don't understand the economics. No, they don't. Because they don't talk to anybody about the economics. They always talk about what their plans are. Their utopian vision, Pelosi's always talking about, she's doing everything for the children, even though outside of her own grandchildren. I don't think I can't remember the last time she's actually talked to a child. She doesn't know what she's talking about. And so this is what you have a pair of Capitol Hill. These bills that they've been pushing through this Congress, there's no debate on these bills. They come out of Pelosi's office. They drop into rules. The rules committee is the size of somebody's living room. I'm not kidding. That's how small the rules committee is. And so you're sitting in somebody's living room and cameras all over the place. The votes are already pre ordained no matter what the members from the different ranking members on a Republican side actually tell the rules committee about these bills. They vote them off there. They go to the floor and they vote him off the floor. There's no debate in Washington, D.C. about these ideas. These quote unquote bills, whatever Joe Biden's plan is, which frankly isn't a plan..

"It's a story about the meaninglessness of life while at the same time. It's a story that allows for all kinds of different meanings meanings right. So do you think the balloon is. life is at one interpretation. One possible. I had never thought of it that way but maybe the balloon is only there for twenty two days. It's got a short life. The balloons not really alive but it does seem like a creature. You know i imagine it. As a vast pillow pillowy form the a lights on the tops of buildings and squeezes itself between buildings. And it's got some kind of life for the people below but i've never imagined it that way exactly I mean another way and this is certainly implied in the story. Another way of looking at it is that it's a creative work. It's a story. Perhaps the doll. Barney story that fuller responding to i have to laugh when he finds the most like the worst comment on that is to say. It's interesting such a such damning with faint praise But then he kind of runs through these lists of sort of critical commentary that make no sense but A sound official. And you feel. I feel at least on some level. He's perhaps mocking the critics. Maybe i've ever imagined donald barthelme really mocking. But it may be that. He's having fun with the critics. One thing barth is not as he doesn't have a smirk to me. It's a story about innocence as well in some way. This new thing that he's made in created. It's not interesting to him because he's getting through a rough time which we don't know until the end it's also not interesting because of its colors. It's grey and brown there. It is just a balloon. It's just a balloon but it has to stand for a lifetime of thinking about balloons and the narrator says as much. Yeah it seems to me that sometimes he's trying to sort of deliberately. Throw us off the sent you know with by saying it has no meaning. You're than saying it's a parent purposeless. Nece is this that you know if it's apparent than perhaps it does have a purpose but its purpose isn't to amuse children. So what is it you know. There's there's a lot of solicitation in the story In a sense to to make us think about this balloon and anything that could possibly represent or be see. I imagine barth he running the story and basically having fun and if it's about meaning and meaninglessness than it would be fun to go through a variety of possible meanings and then shoot them down which the story does in a way what it means to barthelme me it may also mean to the narrator right. Is there a difference between the two well. Barthelme never inflated a balloon above above manhattan. Perhaps barthelme felt grief and longing for a lover who had gone to norway. I think he must have and maybe he wrote the story during that time right and in that sense the story is the balloon. Sure ranco though. The story isn't grey and brown with soft yellows. Which is. it's it's just fascinating to me. That the specificity of some of the details right you know because if what we have is a giant symbol something soaring above manhattan to represent grief. Why does it have these specific qualities it's concrete. It's a balloon and so huge balloon so it has to have a kind of concrete nature so these are concrete. Descriptions like the surface of it that people take trips on And the colors. One of the colors is forgotten yellows. I believe that's that's one of the first hints. I suppose you get that this. Perhaps in emotional balloon. The balloon is real. The balloon is not just an idea. the the narrator really does inflatable in the balloon. Really does cover part of lower manhattan. It's a real balloon sores. I'm concerned so you have a balloon. That's real let's tactile that's described in a in a concrete way and yet is also seen or interpreted as a metaphor for a lot of things and in a way. It's a perfect metaphor because you take a balloon it's hollow you. Fill it with air. You fill it with gas. You fill it with something or whatever you want exactly. And in this case it's filled. Yes it's filled with helium but it's also filled with longing. Well that's the metaphorical part. Yeah in the meantime. It's filled with. Helium is inflated. So i take it to be a real balloon. That's really made by this character. Even though we know that that's impossible and then when you get to the end and he's sort of revealed well in fact. This balloon is a manifestation of my longing in my deprivation while this love was away even then it's still physical because he takes it down but it's just fabric that's stored somewhere stored in west virginia. Why why yes. Because he doesn't have use for it any longer but at the very last line makes me think you know what's waiting there in case it's needed again and it might be needed again if they become angry with each other. So why would anger. 'cause the balloon to be inflated because it would be a break in their relationship and it'd be a rift would put him into discomfort again Longing and the balloon is has solution for discomfort or it's his representation of discomfort is his way of getting through would say that. It's not necessarily a solution. It's only needed while. He's in discomfort. Yeah longing tamales distress so yes. The balloon is a manifestation of distress. But that doesn't change the fact that it's a real ballooned that he's really constructed with engineers and everyone else. What do you think of the tone of the story. I mean i feel. It's almost written like a science experiment you know with the precise sort of this is where it stops. This is where it goes. This is what it does that kind of precise observation of what happens when you put this object in this place. I hadn't thought of it as a science experiment i can. I can read it somewhat as a letter. Got an epistolary quality. It's explaining this to some third party. You know mia new What do you make of those two opposing interpretations. You know one man sees it as sullying. The sky will in fact it's january in this guy's nasty and the other one sees it as this sort of unexpected office bonus some cash in.

"Choose a story from the magazines archives to read and discuss this month. We're going to hear the balloon by donald barthelme which was published in the new yorker in april of nineteen sixty six disability on the part of the balloon to shifted shape to change was very pleasing especially to people whose lives were rather rigidly patterned persons to whom change all the desired was not available. The balloon for the twenty two days of its existence offered the possibility in its randomness of getting lost. The story was chosen by donald antrim. The author of three novels and the story collection the emerald. Lighten the air. His memoir one friday in april a story of suicide and survival will be published this month. High donald. Hey how're you doing all right. So in one of the first podcasts in this series in two thousand seven you read and talked about a different donald barthelme story. I bought a little city. And what made you choose barth again. I loved donald barthelme for one and the balloon is one of my favorite stories of all time and seem too short to read for this. But it's not apparently I have a soft spot. Why do you think you have a soft spot. partly because donald barthelme was one of the first writers. I ever read. Who made me feel like. I wanted to be a writer. I read barth in highschool and there was some sitting on my few copies sitting on my father's shelf and i took them off took them to the beach. We lived in miami. That tom and i just couldn't be bothered while i was reading them. That just went straight to me when you when you first read them back then as a teenager and thought maybe you could write. Were you thinking he would write in a style like that. Not exactly I'm not really sure what it was. I didn't begin writing for a very long time after that. I was still reading when i was younger. I had the feeling that. I had to read everything. And before. I could right before i was allowed to write. It wasn't until i was in. My mid twenties began to write anything in earnest and with the balloon. He said it's your favorite donald barthelme story. Why is that. what is it about this one. It's a love story and for a long time reading it. I didn't really realize that because it comes so subtly at the very end of the story but not long ago i read it allowed to my wife and it really hit me that aspect of it that that fact and i had tears the emotionality. The story is intense for me. It's interesting we'll hear the story but that emotion is well. Maybe it's it's an undercurrent but it's not mentioned explicitly to last paragraph of the story. But you feel it earlier feel it earlier now know after reading it again and again and do you remember when you first read up. Oh i must have been about seventeen or eighteen. I think when. I was trying to read if i were going to be a writer. One day reading everything i could get my hands on reading gauge lawrence reading donald bortolami. Does it very different writers. Sure but you've got to do that. I think you gotta read around. Yeah well we'll talk some more after the story. And now here's donald antrim reading the balloon by donald barthelme. The balloon the balloon beginning point on fourteenth street. The exact location of which i cannot reveal expanded northward all one night while people were sleeping until it reached the park. There stopped it at dawn. The northernmost edges lay over the plaza the free hanging motion was frivolous and gentle but experiencing a faint irritation at stopping even to protect the trees and seeing no reason the balloon should not be allowed to expand upward over the parts of the city. It was already covering into the airspace to be found there. I asked the engineers to see to it. This expansion took place throughout the morning. A soft imperceptible sawing of gas through the valves. The balloon covered forty five blocks north south and in regular area east-west as many as six crosstown blocks on either side of the avenue in some places that was the situation then but it is wrong to speak of situations implying sets of circumstances leading to some resolution some escape of tension there were no situations simply the balloon hanging there muted heavy grays and browns for the most part contrasting with walnut and soft yellows a deliberate lack of finish enhanced by skillful installation gave the surface a rough forgotten quality sliding waits on the inside carefully adjusted anchored the great very shaped mass at a number of points. Now we have had a flood of original ideas on media works of singular beauty as well as significant milestones in the history of inflation. But at that moment there was only this balloon. Concrete particular hanging there. there were reactions. Some people found the balloon interesting as a response. This seemed inadequate to the immensity. Of the balloon the suddenness of its appearance over the city on the other hand in the absence of hysteria or other society induced anxiety. It must be judged to calm mature one there was a certain amount of initial argumentation about the meaning of the balloon. The subsided because we have learned not to insist on meanings and they are rarely even looked for now except in cases involving the simplest safest phenomena. It was agreed that since the meaning of the balloon could never be known absolutely extended. Discussion was pointless or at least less meaningful than the activities of those who for example hung green and blue paper lanterns. From the warm grey underside in certain streets or seize the occasion to write messages on the surface announcing their availability for the performance of unnatural acts or the availability of acquaintances daring. Children jumped especially at those points where the balloon hovered close to a building so that the gap between balloon building was a matter of a few inches or points where the balloon actually made contact exerting ever so slight pressure against the side of a building so the balloon and building seemed to unity. The upper surface was so structured that a landscape was presented. Small valleys as well as slight holes or mounds once atop the balloon a stroll was possible or even a trip from one place to another.

"donald b" Discussed on A Tone Meant For Me
"Atonement for me donald He magic misfits. It's kagan i've you and welcome back to tone meant for me. So i've been talking a lot about my art lately and some of the things that i work through in my designs and in my art and people who inspire me and drive me and a couple of weeks ago. I said one of the biggest prisons that i have created for myself as been trust and that is always going to be the hardest thing for me any relationship whether it be a friendship or family or romantic. But i haven't had very much opportunity and least a decade to make art. That is hot. Be and that represents me in a happy and safe space and the only well. Not the only reason but the main reason that i'm able to do that right now. Is the man that i met who i'm dating. And his name is donald. He is my biggest support right now and i don't know what i could have done without him. And if you've known me for any amount of time you'll know how difficult it is for me to hold people close to me and acknowledge that and tell other people about that Relationships to me have been super super private but also a huge mark of shame for me just because of how terrible my recent relationship then and getting myself into super awkward relationships having been abused in a romantic relationship will change you for ever and he has been so patient and kind with me that it sounds so strange to say this out loud but he makes me feel like a human being and that should be a basic. But i just discovered that i could be a human being and that could be treated like a human being and equally and fairly and that is terrifying and amazing and mysterious to me. I don't know all the time what i'm doing and i'll look at him like i'm just waiting for the other foot to drop because i am terrified and i tell them all the time that i absolutely terrified but it's also something that i don't wanna lose having lost so much in such a short period of time and having lived with nothing for so long that being given the other half of your soul is just miraculous but at the same time like what you when you need that and i don't couple months ago v was talking about who they saw for me the perfect partner and i didn't even know what i wanted. I couldn't even conceptualize what i wanted. And what they described is what i have with donald..
"donald b" Discussed on Talking Politics
"It's too dangerous because he sometimes here you heard it around Brexit in this country that have the ignorant people had voted for the thing. They didn't understand no one understood. That's true but it's much more dangerous when the president in the face of ignorance behaves. Let your does that seems to be well put. There is a dangerous narrative at work here. which is the electorate is divided Eddie between ignorance and knowledge? And I don't think that's the I agree. I just want to pick you up on something you said earlier in that respect as well as you said we all needed you needed to civic education. I send if you like that in this country I feel like we've been put through a civic education over the last three and a half years because of what happened after the referendum. I don't think in this country understood our own constitution listen. I don't think we understood what was happening to. Countries politics understood many of the social economic problems in this country in that sense. I think that what's happened is being a wakeup call to his was all of facing ignorance so I think this is the silver lining of trump is that I think that versions of that has happened to a lot of Americans the awareness that I need to start paying a different kind of attention to this process so I think that's true and I think that you know this political moment is a byproduct of of a very long period of not exactly peace and prosperity there. Obviously you know America's been at war in its own way forever and not everybody what he is experiencing prosperity. But there's been an absence for a longtime of an existential threat of the sort that like the Cold War provided World War Two or the depression or the pandemics that happened in the early twentieth century. So there's this less less of a need people feel less. They can afford Ford to ignore. This thing is a nineteen centers off. I think into this the luxury of stepping back from things that should we needed to be much more engaged with out of taking it back a little further eighties but yes. I think that's right. It's a luxury to be able to afford. Donald Trump in the White House and I think a lot a lot of people who will pay the biggest price for him being there people who voted for him and they'll realize at some point that this was it was one of the really striking things about the trump support was that consistently across the country. The more rural the person the more likely they where to vote for trump the fewer people in their town the more likely they were for trump. And it's also true. The fewer people who are in your town the more utterly dependent that you are on the United States government for the firehouse that schools the hospital and that people didn't make that connection that they're handing over essentially initially the instrument for their salvation to someone who doesn't care about it is breathtaking. It's it's beyond like not voting for your economic interest. It's like you're voting waiting for someone who potentially could just crater your entire existence. isn't an also then a breathtaking of what came before that it got to this point. Yes it is is that I think that's absolutely true when I was going to ask you about the connections between this and all the other things you write about from sport to behavioral economics exit everything else. I will not do one on finance. We'll street at a question about ignorance. So the people who ran those banks that nearly took us all down did not know what was going on inside inside those banks. Clearly the chief executives did not understand what they were selling and the consequences were nearly work catastrophic for some of them and Nettie catastrophic for all of us here. We are ten plus years on so they had the ultimate Waco. We haven't had that yet in politics and God knows what it would look like if we did. I mean it doesn't bad thinking go away but other people who run those banks. I mean if we took that as the modal did they learn the lesson. Do they now know what they're are doing when they saw the consequences of their ignorance or they back in the place where we started this conversation. which is ignorance is actually strategically useful? So if you want to be in this business so knows a big question. I guess my crew that the the society has forced them to behave differently than they behaved leading into the crisis so for example they all are better capitalized than they were. All the American banks much much better capitalized than they were. Before they got a cushion that they didn't have. I think it's also true to say that the CEO's are all if I had to bet warier carrier of their employees more aware of their ignorance. People might be doing things inside the bank so that they know that if if they didn't know before it's hard to believe they didn't know before they must know that these institutions are too complicated to manage j. p.. Morgan is smart as Jamie diamond is and his as well. Run as it is compared to all the other ones. He can't know everything that's going on inside JP more. It's just too complicated. These things are many times the size and many times the complexity of the Solomon Brothers that I once worked in and there was no way the head of Solomon Brothers knew what everybody was doing it I could. I could prove it to you because I was doing stuff that that was kind of crazy that he didn't know about and I was a million so I think what they counted on going crisis was everybody had the same incentives everybody had the same interests inside the bank and everybody was kind of smart and selfish so it would result in US making money. They didn't realize that they had people who could make lots of money doing things that would in the end torpedo the bank. So I I bet they have reacted to that. I don't I don't know for a fact that I I bet that they've reacted in any case. We all know the same crisis never happens twice. Whatever happens next? It's look like the financial crisis and it looks like something else and if I had to predict what's going to happen in the financial sector is it's it's not going to start in the financial sector will start with the government. I mean Donald Trump does something that calls into question say the trustworthiness of the US government to repay its debts. That's kind of thing that could trigger the next financial crisis and the other things command like Donald Trump would never end up running a bank because he they wouldn't let him anywhere near it. It'd be when you back when he's real estate developer that he was dishonest and he is an idiot by the time he was done with the New York. Vecsey wouldn't lent him so they have very low opinion of him but he's president but he's president we will tweet the League's not just a Michael's the most recent book the fifth risk but will the other ones too. They are all worth reading studying this weekend. We're going to be putting out. The first in our new series of episodes about the history of America can teach us about American politics now. We're starting with impeachment impeachment of Andrew Johnson and the impeachment of Donald Trump. My Name is David Cement and weeping token policies.
