Newt Gingrich and Charlie Discuss Herschel Walker
"Speaker, I'm going to ask you about something you mentioned in a state you know rather well, the state of Georgia with one of the most expensive Senate races in history, Raphael Warnock against Herschel Walker, an article came out alleging that Herschel Walker paid for an abortion. He denies those claims, emphatically denies them, and it has kind of turned into this entire media circus as Herschel is surging in the polls, raising a lot of money and Warnock is becoming increasingly desperate. How should we as conservatives view this race? And some conservatives are saying, I can no longer vote for Herschel Walker based on these accusations of which he denies. How should we look at this? Well, this is classic. This is exactly what happened to justice Kavanaugh. It's exactly what happened with Donald Trump and what we now know was a totally dishonest Russian hoax that never existed. It was never true. Yes. The FBI lied about it. The New York Times lied about it. The Washington Post lied about it. This is a pattern that goes all the way back to a judge bork when he was nominated for the Supreme Court. So let's be clear. You had an anonymous story in a publication, which then becomes an excuse for other publications which would never deal with an anonymous source to quote the story because the story is not anonymous. It was published. But the source of the stories anonymous, Herschel has been very clear. One that he did have problems at points in his life. He'd had a number of concussions as a football player. He went through the equivalent of PTSD. When he recovered, he, in fact, went around and gave over 400 speeches on military bases, helping people helping young people deal with their own challenges.
Gas Prices Rise & Will Continue to Rise Under Joe Biden
"We also have another problem and that's the economy and it's something that we should be talking about just how bad things are Remember the president of the United States of America wanted you to believe that everything was hunky Dory with gas prices right That you should give him praise for taking $5 a gallon gas and moving it back down Well it's temporary That's what the analysts now believe and there are shortages worldwide Why Because we refuse to be energy independent which is what we were under the Donald Trump and the new Biden regime has said no They want you to suffer in submit to their green religion That's what it is The national average gallon of gas is going back up and when I was in California earlier this week I saw it for the first time in my life in real life like with my own eyes not on a computer but in real life I looked at a sign and it was over $6 a gallon from let it gasoline in California right now Now the prices are going to go up even more after the election We know this because the strategic oil reserves have been artificially flooding the market with cheap gas to lower the price Or I should say cheap oil to lower the price

Caller: How Did Dr. Fauci Make Money During the Pandemic?
"I appreciate the financial overview for Fauci there but a couple of things I wanted to point out like 2020 was pretty boom year for the stock market Overall for everybody after about April things started to go north pretty quickly So I have to imagine that being a little bit older doesn't have a super long window for his investments I imagine anybody in that at that stage was able to make a pretty penny All right let's go through that Let's go through that Seriously I'll walk down that road with you okay If you've ever met with a financial adviser do you have one by chance I do All right so you know this What do they say The older you get the less risk you want to take right And on top of that Fauci's investments are in a blind trust right So he can't basically insider trade in theory Usually when you're in a blind trust you make less money okay Does that make sense I hear what you're saying And still go back to the $1 million he was given I call it in my opinion it's a bribe right It's a bribe Here's a $1 million for sticking it to Donald Trump He should have immediately declined that gift People don't give people $1 million by accident Can we agree on that But at the same time we're capitalist country Money is given Not in the private sector 100% He's supposed to be a public servant If you want to go play in the private sector go play in the private sector but let's go back to that Do you think Doctor Fauci would be given a $1 million gift A political clearly a political gift if he didn't have the job he was in sticking it to Donald Trump Of course not They wouldn't have given him that money They gave him that money and it's not my words It's their words

Kash Patel: People Are Upset Over a Letter vs. A Real Nuclear Threat

Kash Patel: Why Did the FBI & DOJ Wait Two Years to Go After Trump?
"The implication by the media It was some kind of nuclear secret that was going to be a damaging to our national security Utterly ridiculous and always was Yeah I mean you've reported the truth and that's been our mission when you were in service when I'm in service and now we're both out of service The truth is the only thing that matters especially if you're going to promote it to the American public And the fact that another get Trump implosion has occurred just goes to show you how little credibility these government gangsters and that's what I call them now have Something outstanding You and I both know at the midterms are just a stepping point And so the next cycle But here's what I say Donald Trump was such a threat to the world talking about nuclear secrets and everything that the FBI DoJ waited two years to go And then when they got the search warrant they gave the FBI a weekend off because they were afraid that orange man bad was going to blow up the world I mean these people just don't get it but you and your audience do And I dumb it down for everybody I wrote a children's book series on the whole freaking thing
Supreme Court to Take on Tech Case
"Big news from the Supreme Court yesterday they announced that they will hear a tech case. They are going to be examining section two 30, which limits the liability, section two 30, the communications decency act of 1996 passed at the dawn of the Internet age to protect Google and Twitter and Facebook and YouTube from the consequences of the material they post, including ISIS videos. Twitter and Google have been sued by victims of ISIS for their propagation of the terrorist group's propaganda over the many years that it existed till Donald Trump crushed them in the early year of his presidency. However, section two 30 is a shield and will that shield be taken away in the Gonzales versus Google case, or in Twitter versus Tommen, I don't know. One thing you're interested in is does that shield make them government actors?
Why John Zmirak Is a Climate Denier and You Should Be Too
"Monday and because you've been very, very bad over the weekend. Your punishment is, you have to listen to me, talk to John, smear, shame on you. Now take your punishment. John, why am the wrath of God? I am the rod of the Syrians. Okay. What is happening? Well, I'm got another piece. It's streamed on Argo. I hope people check out. It's called why I'm a climate denier and you should be too. First of all, denier. That's the word that the left likes to use when we disagree with something they say when we dissent, I don't know, argue, we are deniers and this is a clear example of manipulative rhetoric. They are trying to evoke Holocaust denier. So if you deny that the 2020 election was honest, they will call you an election denier. Right. The people who deny that Donald Trump was legitimately elected in 2016, they're not election deniers. Deniers are only people on the right. You remind me that this is, I'd like to thank my interruptions and parentheticals are important. But in this case, you remind me, I've said this before, but I've never said it quite the way I want to say it now. When the left doesn't have an argument, which is now most of the time they don't have an argument. They have become experts at name calling. If I can use a word to shut you up, you're a racist, you're a white nationalist. You're a church. Nationalist. You're a transgender excluding radical feminist. Instead of arguing with feminists who disagree with transgenderism, they just call them terfs, which is a dehumanizing effort. Hazards that dismisses their arguments. And likewise, Christian nationalists, that's the new one. And that's meant to evoke white nationalists. But more as good as designed to stop argument and rational thoughts.
How the Left Uses Psychological Projection With John Zmirak
"Muir, what else must we discuss? So we're talking about how the left uses psychological projection. And projection is something goes all the way back to the Garden of Eden. Satan told eve that God was jealous of human beings and felt threatened by them and was trying to restrict them and tear them down. But in fact, that's what Satan was doing. Hitler and the Nazis, they got hold of this book the protocols of the elders of Zion, it claimed there was a tiny cabal of conspirators who wanted to tyrannize the world and destroy traditional values and just wield absolute power. And it was true except it wasn't the Jews. It was the Nazis where that conspiracies. And they were projecting their own guilt onto the innocent Jews. The communists did the same thing. When they called everyone a fascist, you know, liberal Democrats or fascist monarchists or fascists. It should be because there is a political party that's morally indistinguishable from the fascists. It's the Communist Party. Well, in our own time, the Democrats claimed that Donald Trump's election in 2016 was a threat to democracy that required a resistance. He was corruptly colluding with a hostile foreign power and you would abuse the government's power to persecute his opponents. Well, none of that was true of Donald Trump, but all of it is true of the former Joe Biden.

How Charlie Ended Up on the Government Enemy List
"The story from just the news dot com that we have been focusing on is just extraordinary. This organization that was in charge of this should be investigated by the new Congress. It's unbelievable if we're able to take back the house which I believe we will. Targeting voices and organizations that they don't like. Silencing and censoring them, it really makes you believe. It really makes you pegs the question. How many seats in the Senate? How many seats in the House of Representatives? How many governors mansions would we control if we had a fair fight? If we had a fair fight against the left, what would the country look like? Maybe this is one of the reasons why they have felt so confident going into these midterms. Maybe this is why they don't slow down and they're driving us off a cliff. Inflation open borders, how many other tricks do they have up their sleeve? From manipulating our elections to interfering directly into the discourse of the country. We saw it firsthand, we have the evidence we have the goods, I think our lawsuit would be very compelling. We have damages and we have direct off a cliff engagement on multiple social media sites and now we know why. The Department of Homeland Security cybersecurity and infrastructure security agency and the State Department inexcusably targeted my own social media. Right here, I'm a threat to the regime allegedly, supposedly I'm such a threat to the federal government because I ask questions about an election because we call out the nonsense of what's happening in the federal government, there's a list of us together, as I've mentioned, James Woods, James O'Keefe, Rick grinnell, Breitbart News, Eric Trump, gateway pundit Donald Trump Jr., all of us together being suppressed and silence, millions of times.
John Solomon Discovered a List of Government Enemies Including Charlie
"The private consortium that reported election misinformation to tech platforms during the 2020 election season was in consultation with federal agencies, targeting several news organizations and its dragnet. So essentially, we have a third party allegedly a third party that exists to censor people that they don't like, such as James Woods, gateway pundit Donald Trump Jr., Tom finton, Jack posobiec. Myself, Mark Levin. James O'Keefe, Rick grinnell, Breitbart News, Sean Hannity. So the federal government pays this outside company to then censor voices they don't like. John Solomon joins us right now. John, how are you doing? I'm well. How are you? Great. Congratulations on this story. So walk us through it and we'll go from there. Enemies list. So the federal government is paying third party companies to silence voices they don't like including myself. Yeah, so in the 20 20 election, it was done free of charge. This consortium called the election integrity partnership, which was a couple of university couple of liberal groups. They did it on their own, but they created a system where the federal government could actually file a ticket like it was a concierge desk and you could politics saying I want this URL, these tweet censored and then this group would go out, be the intermediary, the third party that would go out and do the work on behalf of the government. After the election, the members of this consortium, the four private members, they all got grants and contracts from the new incoming Biden administration. So you see a reward for having done it. The breadth of censorship is absolutely jaw dropping.
Dinesh Examines E Jean. Carroll-Trump Rape Defamation Lawsuit
"I don't know if the name E Jean Carroll is familiar to you. It might be, this is a columnist. This is the woman who accused Donald Trump of raping her. Now, the alleged rape, if you can believe it, was supposedly in the dressing room of bergdorf, Goodman department store. How Trump went grabbed or dragged her into the dressing room with bergdorf raped her there. I mean, just the idea is to me, absurd. But nevertheless, she alleges that this happened to her when, in the mid 1990s, so the allegation is based upon conduct that evidently occurred. Well, 27 years ago. And as far as I know, this is an incident that was not a witness by anybody. The two of them were supposedly alone in the dressing room, Trump, of course, have claims this is ridiculous. This is absurd. This is preposterous. And this woman, gene Carol, has been on a kind of militant crusade to get this tried to get it a criminal charges filed against Trump. That didn't happen. She then sued Trump. Now hers lawsuit is for deformation. Why? Because evidently, when Trump was asked about this, he made some derogatory comments. I mean, hardly surprising when you use somebody a brave, but here's what Trump goes, he goes, quote, I'll say it with great respect. Number one, she's not my type. This is very trumpian. She's not my type. Number two, it never happened. Now probably would have been better just to stick with number two, but Trump couldn't resist throwing in number one. But nevertheless, there's no deformation here to say that she's not my type is something that people are entitled to say, you're not exactly maligning someone by saying what is or isn't your type. And number two, of course, Trump is merely denying the incident, but nevertheless, E Jean Carroll wants to have a trial for whether or not Trump defamed her.
Biden signs bill to avert government shutdown, aid Ukraine
"President Biden signed into law a bill that finances the federal government through mid December House speaker Nancy Pelosi says this bill has money for some top priorities $12.3 billion For the fight for democracy in Ukraine four and a half $1 billion for disaster received But Republicans like Oklahoma's Tom Cole complained there were no bipartisan negotiations and didn't reflect their priorities We know we have a crisis on the southern border You can turn on the television and see it every night You can look at the fentanyl pouring into the country You can see the tragedy of human trafficking Is there anything in this bill that asks us to do anything different Anything new On his social media platform former president Donald Trump responded to the bill's passage saying Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell has a death wish Trump also had a racist message for McConnell's wife former Trump transportation secretary Elaine Chao Ed Donahue Washington

The Men Who Can Put Trump Away Need to Back the Women Charging Him
"Put on the legal analyst hat and then we understand there's that we need to do this in the appropriate way and that's where I'm saying you got to come at this guy from all vectors. And the things that people are doing, some people, at least, are completely appropriate. The Tisch James lawsuit completely appropriate. The January 6th committee has been completely on point to this point and I expect this week to be even more even more interesting, right? There are law enforcement officials who are doing what needs to be done, it's just I don't want to make it as it's not as simple as this, but it's just like it's the women who are doing it. It's like the guys who are letting us down, right? Like when it comes to actual prosecution and actual jail time, it's not up to tish James. It's up to Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, who seems to be afraid of Donald Trump. That's the best. That's the nicest way I can put it. Right? We did seem to wake him from his nap. Welcome from his nap though, right? He was like, what? Oh, no, I'm working. I'm totally doing something though. He's not. He's not, he should have been with Tisch James when she is leaning out civil charges. He should have been laying out criminal charges at the same time, but he's trying to get away. He's trying to avoid taking on the big bear, right? Yeah. We don't need just Zoe lofgren and Liz Cheney on the January 6th committee who are doing great. And we need Merrick Garland. Yeah. We don't need basically at this point Cassidy Hutchinson to have the biggest cajones in Washington, D.C., we need Merrick Garland to back her up at some point. So at some point you got the people with the power to put this man in jail, have to step up to the plate. The people with the power to charge him civilly to explain the nature of his many, many, many, many crimes. They seem to be on the wall and doing the job.
Judge Cannon Is Showing Her Compromised Colors Says Glenn Kirschner
"Jill wine banks tweeted outrageous. Yes, I know I'm shouting. I don't do it often but judge cannon is shocking. Why have a special master if you plan to run the review yourself, will the special master resign? I guess we should not still be shocked at something that unqualified Trump appointed judge will do. But give us your take on this. Yeah, if judge cannon is trying to prove to us that she's compromised, I think mission accomplished. You know, it really is pretty outrageous that she would appoint judge Gary, Donald Trump's pick as special master and judge deary said, okay, I'm going to need some things so I can conduct a sorrow professional informed review of the classified documents Donald Trump stole from the government. I'm going to need the Department of Justice to certify the accuracy of the inventory that, you know, the items that they seize from Mar-a-Lago and I'm going to need Donald Trump to do the same. And judge deary said, yeah, DoJ can certify the accuracy, but I'm not going to make Donald Trump do that, which is just, it's inexplicable, and I'm looking for ways to explain it other than judge Geary is not impartial is not competent and is in some way compromised.
"donald it" Discussed on NFL Live
"UFC two 75, Saturday night from Singapore, it's another stacked card with Glover to chera and Valentina Shevchenko defending their belt plus the much anticipated rematch between Shawn Zhang Wei Li and Joanna yim Jay chuck. The prelims are on ESPN2, ESPN deportes and ESPN+ starting at 8 eastern 5 Pacific fall by the main card on pay per view to order an English and Spanish go to ESPN+ dot com slash PPV and it's never a dull moment in the NFL as chef he does in fact have some breaking news here at NFL live. We'll feel the rams and Aaron Donald have reached agreement on a new deal. This really is old deal that just gives him more money. It gives him basically $60 million in a two year extension. It leaves him under contract for the three years and basically makes him the highest paid non quarterback in history. It's 95 million over the three years of the contract. You compare that to other quarterbacks. It's a big number and essentially that deal is getting done today and it ensures that Aaron Donald now will be back for the ranch. We heard the retirement talk, the speculation about whether or not he would stay or go. Well, he is staying. They've been talking about doing this deal dating back to the combo. I don't think anybody thought the deal wouldn't get done. Now it is officially agreed to and it gives Aaron Donald in additional 60 million dollars during the course of that extension and moves him into a rarefied air that Marcus spears never came close to achieving during the time that he played defensive line in the National Football League. Yeah, so if I understand this all correctly. Yeah, no, it's okay. He just speaking the truth. This is Aaron Donald, man, money. Aaron Donald now has 95 million reasons to not want to retire and walk away from the game of football. I know you caught a stray right there. So hopefully we can get you back on track. But if you could, how much does dead this deal done mean to the rams? I get it. He's the best player in football. Regardless of position. But how important was it for them to get this settled with the, I can't even call it a threat, but at least the idea of him walking away from football somewhere in the background of this franchise. Yeah, chef did we no longer brothers you've been demoted to just an appointment? Until we rebuild this relationship. Here's the thing, man. And Dan and I were all sports in the earlier today and I talked about the impact that Aaron Donald has not only the player that he has, but what you're allowed to do. From a defensive standpoint, when we start talking about rarified air like the greatest of all time and we attribute that to a defensive tackle, a guy that sees more double teams and probably have seen more double teams than anybody currently playing in the league and still have an impact on the game. I want to put this into context for people because when you start talking about him being the highest paid compared to quarterbacks in history, Aaron Donald is the reason why the Los Angeles Rams were able to win a Super Bowl. And I know that Matt Stafford played magnificent. I know how good Cooper Cup was. I understand about Jalen Ramsey and all of the guys that we talk about. But I'm talking about when you turn the tape on and you lock your eyes in on 99, the plays that he's not making as an individual that's not going in this statue, he's affecting that play and helping someone else make it and making that job way easier. He allows your defensive coordinator to get creative and put different guys in different spots with the knowing that he'll cover us. He'll make us right, even if we don't have a bad call. So you don't just pay for obviously this production. You pay for what Aaron Donald allows you to have the ability to do. And he makes you a Super Bowl contender from a defensive tackle spot. And I want everybody to just put that in context. Yeah, I mean, did Aaron Donald deserve this contract is not going to be a topic on first take tomorrow because extremely dumb. It is not up for debate. He is one of the greatest to ever do it one of the most dominant defensive players in my lifetime, but I will say this, you know, it does make life a little bit harder for the rams. Let's be honest. This is a team that is very top heavy in terms of their contracts. And as they a lot more money to those stars, they will lead to lean more on guys on rookie contracts. Players like free safety, Nick Scott, linebacker Ernest Jones who were excellent down the stretch last year need to show up this year, a player like Justin Holland through their counting down off the edge, opposite Leonard Floyd is going to have to be a contributor on his rookie deal as well because that's what happens when you pay well deserving contracts to superstars. Yeah, I also think this was an easy decision. You know, we have talked about the rams in kind of the way that they have handled the draft and for agency and the salary cap and all that. And we know at some point it's getting pushed down the road so far that they're going to be in salary cap HE double Hodgkin hockey sticks at some point. So it made sense for them to be. I mean, I agree with you that it's going to be more dependent or more pressure on those draft picks. I also think less need their general manager has drafted really well in those middle rounds. And I think this is another sign of his confidence in himself and also his player development. I think simply put this means in solidifies that the rams are the team to beat in the NFC and they are right on par with the team to be in the NFL when it comes to them in the Buffalo Bills. They had no shot of getting back to and winning the Super Bowl without Aaron Donald. I think they are now because of this the favorite. Do you know I want to make another point too? Their defensive line culture here again, my boy henny. He talked about Aaron Donald and we talk about what we see on the field, but he also talked about, I'm not going leadership. I'm going to how he impacts how other guys prepare to go about their right. They realize that it's not going they're not going to be Aaron Donald. And one guy that he mentioned to me was Asia and Robinson and y'all remember we talked about him during that playoff run and how he was against the run. That is the impact of Erin. You can be oppressed. But his coach Henry Eric Henderson talked about that, man. To be honest. Hey Shawn got to get paid too. 'cause he'd been balling. To be clear, to remind now the new deal for Aaron Donald pays of $95 million over the next three years. He is going nowhere retirement can wait for another day. In the meantime, the rams get back to work tomorrow with their mandatory medication. NFL lives back. Same time same place tomorrow. How would you love a chance to save some money on car insurance?

"donald it" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Welcome back, I'm talking to Heather McDonald, who's with the Manhattan institute and has written some pieces at the city journal. We're talking about the issue of the arts, the institute, the Art Institute of Chicago. And what you said, what bothers you is that the people who are guardians of these things, that their whole job, their whole raison debt, forgive me for using a white French term. I apologize. But that they have abdicated their role. Exactly. So why? Why? Because they're cowards because they do not want to stand up against the mob. They want to be accepted by The New York Times to get Holland Carter, The New York Times art critic to write a. Slave appreciation of their antiracist stance. And I guess they simply maybe come up came up during a time when this poison was already infecting the academy. And they've just absorbed it. But I can't really explain it because I know that if I were in that situation and had the slightest understanding of the greatness that I was being asked merely to celebrate merely to understand and to teach young people why they should be down on their knees in gratitude for, I would stand up and say, I am not going to accept these phony charges of racism, but they don't. They embrace it. You'd have to ask them. I mean, it is one of the puzzles of our time of why we are so
"donald it" 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..

"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..

The next morning that part would have made another sortie or disappeared altogether disability on the part of the balloon to shift its shape to change was very pleasing especially to people whose laws were rather rigidly patterned persons to whom change although desired was not available. The balloon for the twenty two days of its existence offered the possibility in its randomness of getting lost a losing oneself in contradistinction to the grid of precise rectangular pathways under our feet. The amount of specialized training currently needed and the consequent desireability of long term commitments has been occasioned by the steadily growing importance of complex machinery in virtually all kinds of operations as this tendency increases. More and more people will turn and bewildered inadequacy to solutions for which the balloon may stand as a prototype or rough draft.

But although it's sometimes bulges out unpredictably and different directions it doesn't really have its own agency it's controlled by our narrator. Who's this narrator. I imagine him as someone living downtown below fourteenth street some somewhere below fourteenth street. You know it's never bothered me to figure out who he is. So much I have a strong sense of the balloon and a visual sentiment especially the hills and little sloping valley on top of it where people run and play walk Sort of been town above town right the narrator. He his a lot of things to say about the balloon and early on he comments on the situation and then he corrects himself and says this is not a situation this is not something that leads to a resolution. It's just a balloon. Why does he make that distinction. Do you think well. I think he speaks to the purposeless. No so the balloon as bologne. It's not a permanent installment for one thing it's a manifestation of his grief or is discomfort. We get that sense. I think in reading the story. We don't get a sense of why that is until the very very end. I mean there's a point which he says straight out there's no meaning to the balloon it's purposeless or it's apparently purposeless and yet the entire story is about trying to find meaning. Roy posits various meanings. And sometimes he imagines those meanings as meanings held in the populous. Different people's ideas about what the balloon might be or might not be what it might represent. Or what might be used for why it's there but he eliminates those reasons as we go through for the most part. So why do we get them. Is he trying to kind of preempt are thinking i think we get them because because we people readers think that way we may be looking for meaning in the story or in our lives. It isn't to be found. Make sense to me that there would be a population seeking meaning or seeking some idea about the utility of the balloon or making use of the balloon as if it had and it does in fact have utility for some children who jumped from building ledges on the edge of the balloon so on and their many meanings that barthel. Ming said yes So it's a story about the meaninglessness of life.

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.

"Matters like we you know. Well we have great assets he managing. It'll be good but like you know. This wasn't a financial benefit for nancy. Pelosi again the democrats can have it both ways right if it was donald trump making that kind of money creating stocks while making the decisions on things that will influence those stocks. There would be outrage of epic proportions right. If the secret service has to book a hotel in near one of donald trump's places there's a story about spent thirty two dollars it's enriching trump. You know they don't talk about the things that the cost they don't talk about any of that stuff wasn't people as husband.

"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..

"So yeah money because I am one hundred percent focused on who can be trump as we both agree we would vote for virtually anybody who ran against trump but certainly for the Democratic candidates who are currently running so what Michael Bloomberg is doing is he's taking away trump's primary power which is which is the money and he has at least fifty times the network that Donald Trump does and he has a willingness to spend it. Yeah trump won't spend anything and he didn't last said he's GonNa Sell Fund and he did nothing and I mean the the one thing I will say with Bloomberg is because you say three hundred five hundred thousand votes plus that up to seven seven hundred thousand votes because of voter disenfranchisement you have to assume. Wisconsin is on a machine of disenfranchising voters and so people are going to be taken off the rolls by disenfranchise. You have to have have more people vote and you have to factor in the Russian. You Know Russians interference. That will happen will happen. But the the Michael Bloomberg Bloomberg factor that we're seeing and to some extent. Tom Dyer is the astonishing power of money. And when you have a lot of money now it's even more. Yeah now and let me tell you. I think what we're kind of all getting to is Donald Trump. We were talking about this in the in the hair and makeup room a little bit as well. He produces a kind of anxiety. Dieting people that is so profound it's part of the reason people are obsessively watching this show and Rachel maddow's and it's like Mitchell motto is sort of their psychologist at this point point because people are afraid of not just what he can do but what he's doing to people what he's bringing out in people the kind of people he's surfacing in the United States states you have swatting happening Nazis. Walking around for it. It is a scary time and you look at the polling on what Donald Trump is just done and rather than make eight people feel more confident. It's made people more anxious. So here's the anxiety level in twenty eight thousand versus twenty one thousand nine people are more anxious. Do People feel safer. After after the strike on Iran. They feel less safe so that the anxiety everything he does make people feel worse so do so. Do you think that redound in particular to any particular candidate date with the notion just practically that energy is contagious. Yep and it's disproportionately contagious when you have more influence so the elevated nervous system trump the anxiety of trump gets communicated both to his supporters and to his antagonists so we all Felix. So let's start with that. Do I think it renounced any candidate. No I th. I think it hurts the candidates who arouse now's fear in people so to be honest I would say that Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Our strike up in that middle middle six hundred thousand three hundred thousand people who this election will be decided by more anxiety so the more moderate candidate is the less anxiety he he or she tends to create. Yeah so I believe that the candidate should be nominated is indeed the one who will have the best chance of winning those six hundred thousand votes. Now you take somebody like Bloomberg if he should take off you know Bloomberg is one of the few candidates could win Florida. He's a New York Jew. There are a lot of New York. Jews in Florida and Florida goes so goes. Does the election if the Democrats were to win the election the demo I mean if the Democrats were to win Florida they'd win the election so I think you've got to kind of hone in On who you who you really believe. We'll win and put aside the differences ideologically within the Democratic Party. Yeah well we're we're GONNA talk about some polling later that I think you're getting at one of the reasons by miss doing well because we're Biden is a comfort candidate and a lot of people are like just get this world to feel not got crazy that make the world com. He is make the World Com. One last point self regulation is the single. Most important thing. Any human being can do you in these times meaning to find ways to calm yourself is a critical element in your being able to survive in these times Hans indeed. It's why we do. Who won the week are calming mechanism at the end of this show because the show is all about bad news? They Tony Schwartz appreciate it. It's always great to talk. Thank you very much. Meanwhile the escalating tendency with Iran. This week here we go again let Irani enforces and this is serious. Accident to accidentally.
