"So pablo glad to be able to have you on the program. We had nanny your ceo on not that long ago. And you're the data science guy here. So i want to really open up with you. I say outreach billion dollar company growing very fast fast platform now it's about taking it to the next level with what are really those opportunities in upsides of taking up popular sass product and layering. Ai why is it worth this. Additional effort of of baking a into the mix. Yeah thanks them credit to be here. Yeah it's very interesting. I feel like At outage the moment To build a in a. And i think as you mentioned it does not start as a companion by that's moments Started building a. yeah. I was actually very good. Good moment to start when we already have had a pretty good user base. Yes yes and very active. Here's our base is very important. Bidding this one aspects of companies. We can collect a lot of raw data from those users and head into All a good amount of data available is kind of a requisite for being able to building a into the product and Heads it if it is already had a good number of customers allege amount of data and actually a lot of insights into the problems of those customers more so at the point where the solutions kind of needed to be developed as unjust not just five on customer but but for many customers. That's that's a very good moment or staff to bringing bringing in anything said that opportunities. That is a clear that ability to solve some of the some of those problems customers ahead him at scale. So i think that's gonna ring true for a lot of the audience. I think people will understand like okay. We're gonna use to solve important problems or pursue important opportunities. Obviously some of that you've been able to do just with the assassin platform itself. You know the company itself. Oh well you know here. We have a problem. Okay build a feature. Push this button and it's going to send an email okay. That's that's a feature. He know he didn't need for that. But then there's other kinds of problems where maybe we do need i. Maybe we we. We do need to leverage like you said the data of all these users we have. Do you think about that. There's some there's some problems where there's no reason to use. Ai would be overly complicated. And then there's others where we do need it for you you know. Why is it important to to go after the i. Opportunities there instead of just the additional sas features. You know what what is the. What's big upside here. Yeah yeah look. At the outage three phases. The kind of the evolution of product and filler step is a step before outage before sales engagement products appears self process was very disorganized. It was kind of like what you're seeing. The contacts ends are good. Luck gone closet and it's ready to Plan and farkas kinda process. It's very hard to understand. Buds is a swedish propagates station. So that's spenders asians. That is very important. A dozen telling me the i. And that's what outreach at standardized the sales process secure but then the next stamp is optimization. The way i think about it is that off. You take a tender outage products and then you take your sales process you would. Outrage is great gun around a lot faster however you spend the bad sales processing place. Now you have a bad sales prosperous minor really fast as opposed that is still By the values bedding might shed. He'd use so helga now customers. The ability of the sales process is is. The next step is the look at what is happening. In aggregate in the government hewlett huma even Across all of our customers and tried to use a to come up with this broad acts of communications on the types of fish which start improving the efficiency of the sales process for example if companies especially those companies who did not have an automated kind of as sales and you kind of sales still in the past sales process tends to be very shells To project prostate the few times small number of times but we know from best practice is that eggshell intakes of seven fifteen or even in some areas. Maybe after source you digest extra Prospects so those kind of best practices can be just baked into the product That can be used to discover those kinds of insights so that the second stab the sword step once wednesday were able to optimize the process.

You might even for evidence sell them. They can extra little better than average. If you can tailor what is suggested commends Unique skill since disaster unique situation.

Who killed Mohsen Fakhrizadeh?

"We start with breaking news. And iran's defense ministry has confirmed that one of the country's top nuclear scientists has been assassinated two diff- of muslim fucker. Saudi is very much proving to be one of those stories in which people will see whatever confirmations of their own prejudices and suspicions they wished to it might reasonably be argued that this description applies in the online epoch in particular to pretty much every story but it is especially the case with stories set in the middle east and which may would depending wh one prefers to believe may not involve israel. So it's best to start with what we know for certain. We know that molson fucker. Zodda was a renowned nuclear physicist a senior engineering of iran's nuclear program and a brigadier general in iran's islamic revolution regard core. He is believed to have been deleted of what was known as project amid the program. Iran established in the late nineteen eighty s to explore the prospects of iranian nuclear weapon and closed in two thousand three according to the international atomic energy agency. We know that he was killed. Last friday near absorbed a small town seventy kilometers east of tehran. And that he was buried with full state on. Who's on sunday law. Main hobby lobby. No optic not that big van owen ruling to the questions of precisely how he was killed by whom there is a bewildering smorgasbord of answers. While it seems clear enough that Was shot dead as the car in which he was. Travelling was the object of an ambush. There are conflicting reports of this assassination being conducted by a posse of live operators. Some of whom may or may not have died at the scene and or by some species of remote controlled weapon monotony iran bit who we bid and me. The enemies of iran have to know that the iranian nation and the country's officials a brave and intrepid enough to respond to this criminal action. As on a has dan in dommage in our yet caught on era by-pass off pigs around as to who might have done it. Iranian officialdom and iranian media have been quick to blame either israel or the mujahedeen e. Cock a curious cultish iranian rebel group which has been a persistent irritant to the islamic republic. And who currently appear to be based between iraq. France and albania. The has also been an amount of copy pasted umbrage directed at the united states or as president hassan rohani of iran prefers to address it the global arrogance on record. Israeli sources have feigned bafflement though the new york times has quoted an unnamed senior. Israeli official is suggesting that the world should thank israel. Four reside is demise. The mujahideen have been reticent. As of this broadcast the iran has yet to present any concrete evidence of their assertions. And if and when they do it will likely be impossible for any independent observers to verify them and iran does reflexively blame israel for pretty much anything it is only a couple of years since former head of iran's military major general signed fear is a body accused of running a network of spy lizards. But it's not like there isn't something of a circumstantial case to answer this year. Several sites in iran which might or might not have been related to iran's nuclear program was struck by explosions which did not appear coincidental and at least four other iranian. Nuclear scientists have met violent ends since two thousand ten to killed by car bombs one by a motorcycle. Bomb one shot dead. In most instances iran blamed israel and israel denied involvement while also making it as clear as it could be regarded even the faintest prospect of a nuclear armed iran as intolerable almost ziff inviting tehran to take the hint and a is at least arguable. Most infact saudis college was marked in two thousand eighteen when israeli intelligence highsted from a warehouse in tehran thousands of files pertaining to iran's nuclear program when israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu announced his feet. He mentioned zadeh by name. A key. part of the plan was to form new organizations to continue the work. This is how dr moosa farkas the of project about put remember that name a day so along with the questions of who and how there is another why in particular wine now whoever killed most fuck resolve will have known that iran would feel obliged to retaliate or at least threatened to retaliate. And that this would make any kind of diplomacy with tehran difficult. Whoever killed muslims will also have understood that a window to such engagement might have been about to open interior. Vashon sean medicare dishman salvage assassination shows. The enemies are experiencing anxious weeks feeling. That the pressure's fading away. And the world circumstances a change a heart.

It's johnny you're gonna with the swearing in of a new american president who has sounded keen on returning the us to the two thousand fifteen nuclear deal with iran out of which the current president flounced of the possible consequences.

Paprika In Hungary

"Let's start today's travel. With rick steves with the role a little pepper from the new world plays in that tasty cuisine of hungary. Note that today's interviews on paprika galicia where recorded just prior to the global shutdowns pepperoni as the backbone of hungarian cooking as the crucial ingredient in chicken pepper. Cash and hardy hungarian stews from mild to hot. We'll find out why this spicy so central to hungarian identity. How to best buys and pepper on your trip and we're going to learn how you can spice up. Your own meals was well to get this education hungarian paprika. We're joined by to guide tonight studio from hungary. And leonard and george farkas anna and george. Thanks for being here. Thanks for having us thrill to be well. Thank you from coming all the way from budapest a long trip. And we're gonna talk about paprika. I mean when we think of hungary we don't know a lot about hungry sometimes. But we think of paprika. What's the connection actually public. A strong connection because it is actually from the american continent and it was The physician of christopher columbus or columbus who brought it to the old world to i not to hungary of course but to spain that through the commercials of the mediterranean sea it got to the ottoman empire and when the ottoman empire extended its political power to eastern century up. We glad to not only bad things that we also got things like the patrika. What are the coffee so paprika and cuffy came as your time in the ottoman empire in paprika actually from america via columbus actually us. So i like teasing are two members and americans who is. That's why to travel here. Righ- flying through the But i like my publisher hungary. There's something romantic about having paprika in hungary. And why does hungary embrace paprika. What does it mean to hungarian. I have great micro-climate lots of sunshine. And what is very important that when we got the paprika was a hot spice and it was the hungarians who grew the might version of it it is from the nineteen twenties when in a small. Get in sega. It was kind of discovered. And since then if you come to our covid market hall you can always buy tubers the mild paprika and the hot fabric honky now. George when i go to budapest i always go to the big market hall right. But it's the name of that. Hologhan bashar knocking hungarian big market or century. You can't miss it when you're a tornado in credits. The first one out of five actually that they built at the time. And what you're going to find is well everything that hungarian cook would want to find. But certainly find peppers. See when you look for the peppers in the market. Well actually. you're not looking for peppers you looking for paprika is already well there is. It is basically a huge difference because many people don't realize it in hungary. Everything is called paprika. Let it'd be around fat skinny red yellow sweet and hot so i'm a little confused. Then so because Is it a pepper or it is a but we call it paprika but we also called a powder paprika yes because when i think of peppers and my supermarket we've got yellow ones and green ones red ones and that all of that. We call paprika even if it's Any shape really And then you have. It already powdered. If you're looking for the paprika that you cook with powdered yes okay. So it's a very unique technique to powder because One of the things that you have to be extremely careful with how you approach paprika once you grind paprika after all the time you spent with it to become dry and ready to grind. You have to do it very slowly makers as soon as you pick up speed you burn the paprika and that remains throughout its lifetime because once you come to cook it again you have to be very careful with a not to burn it because then you just have to start over again tour guides from budapest anna leonard and george farkas are filling in on the importance of peppery cup in the cuisine of hungary right now on travel with rick steves. Okay so when we're talking about this have rica and i think it goes back the days when spaces were really important. I mean spice was big money in the early days of training today today at that time and originally now why was spaces in general very important economically for people well. It was a very important product. It was expensive at that time. It was not so easy to fly from one continent to other a trip two months of making food more interesting or is it a matter of preserving food actually spicy i got to the highest study stock chrissy those who had the opportunity to get products from far far away and paprika also i was introduced for the highest stock resi in hungary after people realised it is not poisonous because i it was considered a supposin and when they discovered that it has healing effect. You know it here the colorado and screw after it they started to make its production but it was a rarity and it was very expensive so at first who is just for the very wealthy and then you learn it. It helped as medicine against scurvy and cholera. Yes but also medication. Very often is a privilege of the wealthier class. Not available for everybody. Some

"I have an open mind, an open door policy to any of the the major labor union leaders. They can come and visit me anytime. That said I. Think they have to realize that the extreme extreme hardships that Calgary's are going through right now, and if they see automatic pay raises, they see huge entitlements. Hundreds of city staff receiving three pensions not one pension not to pensions, but three mentions. It's not good time for a lot of people out there. So. Another thing to consider is that you can't just look at the the wages that. Person's paid, but you have to look at the other portions of their compensation things like vacation time defined benefit pensions, job security, professional development, sick leave even hours of work. So many people would argue when you take a look at. Those rock-solid benefits maybe even working at City Hall should be for a wage those a little bit less than the private sector given that it's boosted all of these other things on the other side of the ledge defined benefit pensions. That's another big freight train of debt. We've got approaching us a lot of this not funded. SOON, fodder for an entirely separate discussion but yet, there's a lot of areas where perhaps some savings to be found without loss of jobs. Where you're getting at least that's know if you guys to find the efficiencies, it'll probably be a lot kinder than if we're forced to. And be more. Perhaps they know where he could change some things without as much lost a service. I think a lot about the private sector even any. Household. Right now, technology has changed absolutely everything that we do in the last five years, ten years, twenty years but I see city hall woefully slow to Adopt Technology I. See in the private sector, they've been able to innovate drive. Out A. Better quality product for a much lower cost, it seems like the burden of government only ever gets bigger and I think that is sort of the root of one of the biggest differences I have between the vast majority of my colleagues is I view city council, more like a board of Directors or corporation. There's certain services that we have to deliver. We can't be all things all people, but we need to much better leverage technology and have a much better understanding of what counter WANNA see in their services and how they want those services delivered. In walnuts cultural difference.

"One of the concerns is that well, if we don't charger, we don't charge as much to the there's going to be a hole in her budget, but I think about other than the other side, there's a cost to it and the cost is that we're making it incredibly tough for these businesses to viable. So how many more businesses in the downtown would have a better goal of it if? Every Calgary new that they could come and try new things and give them a shot. Right. So I happen to think that there's probably property tax on the other side that were foregoing and revenue that we're not generating from business activity that It's a little bit misguided. Shiny check that the counter parking. Rates to city council every year. Yeah. It is a revenue gender. I'm sort of user fees and putting is one day if it's competitive event parking initiative as full. Yeah. So. What are the bigger questions of budget you know the the billion dollar questions hitting provincial and federal as well as their revenue problems spending problem is both Home. Is Pretty Difficult I. Mean One thing I have to admit municipal governments are pretty limited in the types of taxation they can use. It's not an excuse for overspending in my view, but is there some reforms perhaps her ways you feel that the the ability to tax or could be changed maybe more favorable for counter while let me just say I'm not at all on board with some of these. so-called Charter mechanisms where these big city mayors are pushing for increased tax powers things like municipal sales tax, miniscule municipal income tax, municipal tax on vehicle registration or transfers. There's a whole list of taxes I wanNA exuberance stuff huber tax at work from home townhouses on tax. I think that that is the completely wrong approach most of all because. This council hasn't demonstrated to count Aaron's even remotely closely that we're living within our means. So if you could actually point to significant reductions expenses. Cutting costs and so forth. Maybe maybe you could go to the electorate and say these taxes are justified..

"Probably eighty percent of the city doesn't know who he is yet he's been there for twenty some years and he's done it smartly because he doesn't get into the news he doesn't get online he doesn't take any controversial stands. He just six there hodges was kind of similar prior whenever anything controversial came up I just simply get a stomach sickness and leave James until the vote was done and then he'd come back but these were either not bad people but self serving. So the point of they just don't WanNa make ways they just WanNa, ride the train and and and get you know a jobless and profound compensation but that doesn't serve US whatsoever. So I people say that you're coming in like a wrecking ball, just a stir up the room and everything but I just say that that's a that really needs some stirring up in a bad way right now. So on and safer you mentioned the Hansard. I had a motion to bring in answer like a recording of what's been said in the chamber to hold everyone accountable. But that was deemed an incredibly controversial idea. However, it status, the the provincial and the federal level. So a lot of what I've been asking for is not really revolution. It's just catching up to what other jurisdictions and other owners governments have been doing often for decades or even hundreds of years we don't a corporate low level. The board minutes are usually available to any shareholder upon requests because there's a degree. Of. Transparency required in their discussions there the burden of proof has to be on the directors to say why we have to go in camera for something otherwise, it should be assumed that the rest of the information public in our city council seems to have kind of backwards right now. So I'm really looking forward to the transparency. The light of transparency should help every council member I mean you can't hide in the shadows anymore not doing anything at least you have to answer for for how you voted or not voted in issue. I'M NOT GONNA pretend to say that other yes or a no vote on certain issue tells the complete story. But I would say that the council members only helped by having that context if you actually knew what the debate was the rationale why they were voting a certain way that is even better for democracy than having just the record a yes or no we'll sure into compels them to explain why they went. Yes or no I mean. It may seem absurd at a first glance and with some more discussion that counseling really had some very good reasons to vote the way they did something.

"So. Well. That's a good point as you know. I have been on the losing side of oats say thirteen to to fourteen to one. But more often than not I'm the yes and we have thirteen or fourteen council members the no things like tax freeze using the slush funds for the relief of all taxpayers trying to stop help the Millfield Park residents trying out some controls on these secret meetings, things like that bringing the Green Line. To a vote, those types of issues again, it's it's all in the positive and what our campaign is going to be about is what cowdery can achieve what we can prove to this country that we can do and who we can be as long as we had a city council that was willing to say, yes City Council that was willing to help rather than stand in the way. Yeah. Well, and you've been A. Dead, you're okay with being the lone person standing for some principles and things or. Two or three councillors at times. Losing a point of principle but at least getting that principle out there. And it's well known to mirror is just one vote. So even if you win though there's still a lot of challenges coming. That would mean having to develop a relationships compromises. One would hope there perhaps some different faces on council it'll be a little more receptive to some positive changes for you to work with anyways. You're prepared I mean that'll be a different environment for you to deal with though Indian that sense as opposed to you. Know you. Just, lose on a point of principle you want to get that thing through. Well, I think one thing that my constituents know about me is I've been able to get results. So they say all politics is local and if you had a counselor who truly was only gonNA grandstand and not get anything done. Their constituents would be the first to line up to get rid of them because if you get no results, then you get no support but I, think what I've been able to show to my constituents as I actually can deliver on the local issues the potholes getting things done, and there's been incredible series of motions I. Have Been Successful on say for example. I've been working together with the council feral. Likely ideological opposite to be able to. Update and fix some of these pipes that we still have in our water system. So this is a counselor who is quite the opposite of me on the political spectrum, but I can demonstrate that I work with her on an area of alignment where both of our wards residents benefit from. Same thing on other things like restoring our summer student program. I was able to actually partner with the mayor and saying you know this is not a cut that the city should be making if we if we're going to be making cuts at actually used to be in areas that save US money. So I do have a record of success things that I can point. To things that I have achieved and I'm incredibly excited for the campaign because this campaign is going to be about a records and I'm happy to to stand by and run on my own I didn't want to try to imply that that's all you do is die on these plates principle as well. But those are just ones hear about, of course, passes without too much conflict. And people don't hear about the. Went on in committee your times in past get those policies through. It's it's.

"Of course notes, I'm cory Morgan. Morning. Jeremy Farkas formally announced he's going to be running for mayor. It's going to be a thirteen month campaign is going to be quite a hard slog. Jeremy's a first year counselor. One of the youngest ever elected to city council in. Calgary. He's always been known as something of the Maverick on council. He sees butted heads with mayor and engineer many times as well as a number of other counselors, but he's been consistent and in in standing for transparency personal Reductions in in compensation he's even refused to take his pension, which is a five to one return for for city councillors and extremely rich one. So he leads by example, which, of course, shamed counselors who were already there It's going to be quite interesting. Ron Jeremy gave me a half hour of his time today to explain where he's coming from and what he's looking to do and it, and it was a great chat were really looking forward to campaign. Stars you for sitting down with Jeremy it has been a why also it's great. Congratulations on surviving three years in city council a long ones, and clearly glutton for punishment because now you've announced you're pursuing the big chair. So maybe I'll let you start out with a good easy beginning ramble which I'm sure even seeing over and over all day but. What in a nutshell I guess you're starting points why you decided to run for for I think it comes back to Iran for Council it's opportunity I think about what all my family had to go through from. Communist Hungary. During Nineteen fifty-six the revolution there to be able to make it to Canada to be able to make it to Calgary to achieve some success for themselves and for others. You know it's almost a cliche to hear from a politician, but you know feel like I have to make good on the promise but it's been given to me and I have to pay that forward and think about some of the decisions we've been making these days. It's been making an already hard. Situation on Calgary even worse. So when you think about the pandemic, the global recession, the crashing oil prices, all of this alone would be a crisis situation. But in Calgary, we have the pleasure of having out compounded by. Frankly very anti business policies. Incredible amount of secrecy, but also crushing tax. So for me, it comes back to opportunity I think opportunities what Congress needs and Opportunities Calgary needs from their council. So I think that's what we have to work to to restore and renew specifically though I'm I'm happy to run on my record. I've constantly been asking city council to say, yes. Yes to responsible spending. Yes to transparency and yes to opportunity and I think now more than ever it's just crucial to give counter choice an alternative from the status quo in the last ten years of secrecy in overspending. Appreciate your your bag, a messaging history not seeing no things you're saying yes to broaden things saying, yes to changes because we can already see the opposition jumping up the people in the status quo and predictably they're they're pretty upset with you for daring to rock the boat..

Exploring Hungary

"Let's start out today's travel. With Rick Steves with a little old world charm in Hungary when travelling in Europe. You just have to include the great cities on your itinerary. Hungry elegant capital of Budapest is certainly impressive. But there's another side that you should explore as well and that's the country's smaller towns and cities historic Acre is an easy and popular sidetrip northeast of Budapest. It's been attracting travelers from Eastern Europe. As a place to catch your breath surrounded by the opulent architecture of Hungary to introduce us to the scene. And we're joined by Hungarian tour guides. Monica Poche and George. Farkas thank you. Did I get that right in Budapest? If you're looking for a little break you head up to egger very much. So yes how far away is it and what it would take about. Maybe an hour and ten minutes done in a highway and then on the secondary roads. And then you find yourself in gear Third Drain Connection. There is yes you will have to switch. That's one of the reasons why is not as cosmopolitan as it should be? Because when the train tracks were planned they didn't make a direct connection initially so That's a little bit of a of a downside of it but there's a great bus connection as well so Monica when you were growing up in Budapest. Did your family ever go to Edgar together? Yes actually not just with our family but I remember that During school trips during the communist era we were taken to Edgar Edgar was the seat of the archbishop pre so it has fantastic beautiful churches by the way would like to tell you during the communist era because of the nine hundred fifty six revolution aft-r in Hungary all of the churches are considered to be museums. Saw it ever also well capped? That's even during the communists. They are as squid children. We were taken to the Churches Museums. But not as living places of worship. The church survived physically. But it's a historic place Museum rather than a place of worship joining a community standard harmonised. Okay well it was very much controlled control. Why let's just turn around a little bit and say why Edgar would be the number one destination for Hungarians visit because it's part of the curriculum because that's where biggest victory happened. Hi this is Turkey Turkish time because they talk about. That was the last place to be taken in by the Turks of they go all the way thirteen. Nine thousand Turks are coming over and two thousand Gillian's actually locked themselves up. In the castle women children as early and they go and defeat the Turks. So that's the victory talk about. That's why all children are taken and they are taught. We don't talk about the fact that the send away the defeated Turks. A couple of months later turned around and came back into the town. But that's something we talk about. Obviously that's that's not really something won your battle fifteen fifty two so nearly five hundred years ago. The castle is still there and you can visit the Castle Castle. You even as a tourist. You get a sense. This is really important to the Hungarian much so very much. And my memory of Egor is a minaret and it must be the most northern minaret from the Ottoman Empire sticking up right there in the middle of this city yet. It's like a spaceship. There cannot send has no contracts they just sitting there is under go in a major restoration and so rather interesting Just recently they Reinstated the culpa. Praia a month later. They put it on their huge reconstruction was built for the the man who sings the calder calling. For prayer he actually climb up. The spirit is what about two hundred steps all the way to the top right and then he would get that acoustical benefit of being a top of everybody and to this day while they might not climb up there five times a day. Tourist can climb up there. Yes it's a tight little climb. Yes but it's a good view from there and also the reason it's important to mention because although Hungary was under the Turkish Ottoman invasion in a fifteenth century. They majorly converted existing buildings into minarets or they converted the Roman Catholic churches into mosques. They didn't be too many things. They've built these mirrors that we have. I think maybe two or three in our whole country for the minaret would just decorate a pre existing building that became a mosque. Is that what you're only by? They will buy. It's very rare to see anything from the Fifteenth Century Turkish Ottoman era. But that minaret is one of a kind of it. Gary Tour Guides. George Farkas said Monica Poche telling US why the town of Edgar Northern Hungary is one of the country's most popular getaways right now on travel with Rick. Steves something I remember from Edgar is. The market is just a wonderful market. George can you take us on a little walk? If you have some American friends with you and you want to introduce the culture. What would you find in the market at Egger? That gives us an insight into the salt of their Hungarian cuisine. And it's a great experience. Actually it's a a living market and you still see the ones that actually just went out in the morning and they went to see what's there to sell and they come onto their tunnel is stalls and then they sell day or individual small quantity backyard. I remember that it's like my little card table. And there's a hardscrabble old farmer husband and wife and they've got their turnips potatoes and they kind of looked like their produce very much so yeah so you can get that type of thing and then and then you continue on and then you start to see. The beautifully presented larger stalls with Grapes and Peaches and plums and veggies. And all that beautiful presented. The key is to have that relationship with the vendor. So you go and blink and then they know that they know us so you get the nice stuff From the front. I'm you know to really presentable one. And you're not regular year. You have to be aware you might not get what you see. Are you likely to find some of this famous Hungary and Moonshine for sale very much so Pelinka Pelinka because that's fundamentally something It's like GRAPPA? It's very legal. I would say it starts from eighty proof upwards and its shots That's how in the old days those that work out in the field started. They with just to get some energy my hunches. There's these flat little flasks. That people have definitely I I do have one with me. At that moment Hungarians would never leave the country without a Lilla flat flesh of Polanco. We also call it medicine if you have a heartache if you have a little bit of stomach problem because you're abrode no you are not taking. Bapti obese more something as but you immediately get delillo. Hungarian piling cars sanitizer society. Strong believe it or not but there are still destination centers in the country when you have some fruit trees in Hungary. Let's say plum or apricot or whatever you can take your own fruit to these destinations centers. You know it's bio and then Not filled with chemicals and then they make it for you. This bio moonshine exactly. There's actually a reconsidered approach today because In the old days when you went to house of Hungarian Oh you start to the dinner at the venue they will offer you pulling her and now modern culinary understanding. Is that if you offer Pelinka before the meal. You should be assured that the meal is not going to be good because what they say that if you have your Pelinka sort of so strong it kills your taste at your ability to ten. Then you don't taste the food so now pulling Kush should actually be digested. I suppose to Pera tiff. So if you are a host and you respect what you've cooked you want people to appreciate it you're not gonNA hide it by giving then you offered as before

"And in the meantime they also strategically embracing embracing China. America's other major strategic rival. So Dimitri can you translate for US deconstruct for us. What President Putin route just done at home in terms of paving the way for this big constitutional change towards parliament and away from the presidency? And he's the president what ladies He. What is he actually doing? Well when he has done what he has done in his address to the federal assembly. I was in Washington so so I don't come in you particularly inside from private conversations and most goal but what I can tell you that from informed Russian observers to whom I talked talked by phone or visit in Greece in Washington including last week. I hear that this was quite significant. That they're looking for formula. Went in Portugal would be able to maintain power or at least considerable influence of his presidential term in two thousand twenty four at the minimum q wants probably two straight that he's not a lame duck in he's still number one and remained number one is the details are still be incorrect out but I think that what we should expect that there would be continuation of the Putin era will after twenty twenty four. If of course else cults and she seems to be good girls if sculpture would allow so let us just play a sound by when he described why he was doing. This we're just play this sound bite from President Putin last week go national. She's I know that's a constitutional provision is being discussed in our society that the same person should not be president the more than two consecutive terms. I don't think this is a fundamental issue. I agree with that. It's somewhat mixed messenger. NJIT DMITRI and indeed Evelyn because he's also said that people you know somebody's shouldn't be in power for forever and ever you said it would be very worrying to return to the situation we had in the mid one thousand nine hundred ninety s when state need is stayed in power one by one until the end of their days and left office without ensuring the necessary conditions for a transition of power. So thanks but I think it would be better not to return to that situation and yet it looks Evelyn from here as returning to that situation but just using different public public offices to hold onto that power. Yeah what I predict. Is He'll end up behind the scenes holding onto power so the the the person that he put into to the prime appointed or said we'll be the next prime minister. He's a tax guy. He's a technocrat. He's not a threat he's fifty three years old and doesn't seem to have major ambitions and so he's. He's not considered a threat to Vladimir Putin. And I think what Putin we'll probably do if you can find someone else to be president who will be as obedient As Medvedev was he'll put that person in place and then behind the scenes he can control. Levers we see it in Republic of Georgia actually the oligarchy their bids Eva Zena. Yvonne is really. He's he's still the power behind his party. So it's doable in this kind of system where you don't have a full fledged alleged civil society full-fledged democracy I hate to criticize Georgia in the same breath but because they're trying very hard unlike in in Russia but there is a mechanism for Putin to hold on behind the scenes. So he doesn't look like Brad Chef Brezhnev's you know lean in Russia the old Soviet leader getting wrinkled in the public eye and dying. And then somebody else so Dmitri final question to you because people are looking at all these popular protests that are going on around the world from Iran and around the Middle East to wherever Hong Kong and everywhere and even some of them that turn out on the streets of Moscow. What impact do you think? The young people might ever have in Moscow or in Russia. Because there's been a huge amount of attention on how so many young people I mean. Forty percent forty million Russians born and raised in the age of of Putin two-thirds of Russian schoolchildren's say they have no interest in politics. On what sort of. I don't know social movements. It's can you imagine that could ever challenge Putin well obviously depends upon social conditions in Russia in the major part of his speech. The Federal Assembly was what she's going to do to provide different benefits to the people all people young people Mazdas the CETERA I do think that Putin is still popular but the level of popularity does not remains the same and they think that one reason he proceeded to resist changes right now that he's concerned about forthcoming relation relations too reluctant to the parliament. In that you may not have a full control over the next State Duma and he needs this full control to make changes in the constitution which would show his influence so so I think that Putin is clearly awarded but there is no yet crisis that would be a looming right now really interesting Dimitri Simes Evident Farkas. Thank you both very much.

Trump's Ukraine diplomat provides smoking gun text message: 'Crazy' to withhold aid for political reasons

"Kirk Volcker was giving over nine hours of under oath testimony three House committees working on the impeachment of the president. It was a deposition behind closed doors but some elements of Kurt Poker's testimony have found their way into the New York Times tonight. Kirk Fokker resigned last tweak as the State Department's Special Envoy to Ukraine. It's not at all clear why this State Department needed an envoy to Ukraine when we already had an ambassador to Ukraine but it seems one of Kurt volkers missions was to translate trump to the new Ukrainian president that means current Volcker was in frequent contact with Bill Taylor who became became in effect the Acting Ambassador in Ukraine Donald Trump removed an ambassador who Giuliani did not find to be cooperative enough in his Ukraine's games that were designed designed to force Ukraine to help the trump campaign by investigating Joe Biden Times reports this smoking gun incurred volkers under oath testimony today he disclosed closed set of texts in September in which Bill Taylor the top American diplomat and Ukraine alluded to Mr Trump's decision earlier in the summer to freeze as a military aid package to the country he told Mister Sunland and Mr Volcker. I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign. That is a very smoky gun in writing a member of the trump administration's diplomatic core. The highest highest ranking diplomat in Ukraine puts the trump crime in writing in a text. I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance assistance for help with a political campaign. It's all their everything you need is right there in that text secretary of state. Mike pompeo is blocking King Orden Sunland who was the other person was on that text from testifying under oath to the House on is the United States ambassador to the European Union. Now we know why Mike pompeo is blocking his testimony. Gordon Sunland is in possession of at least one text in which America's top diplomat in Ukraine says I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign. It's all right there in that text. That's why I'm repeating it. Withhold withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign. Mike Pompeo didn't want you to know that those words were ever were written by one of the ambassadors in Ukraine. How many more smoking guns are there in the State Department text messages in their email records and documents that Mike pompeo is now refusing to hand over to the House representatives. The New York Times is reporting tonight that Kurt Volker Gordon Sunland Co wrote a statement the President of Ukraine to make about investigating Joe Biden Times reports the statement would have committed Ukraine to investigating the energy company Burri SMO- smell which had employed hunter biden the younger son of former Vice President Joseph R Biden junior and it would have called for the Ukrainian government to look into what Mr Trump trump and his allies believe was interference by Ukrainians and they twenty sixteen election in the United States to benefit Hillary Clinton the president of Ukraine never ever delivered that statement that was written for him by the trump administration and leading off our discussion tonight or Evelyn Farkas. She's a former deputy assistant secretary of defense in the Obama administration she served on the professional staff on the Senate Armed Services Committee and is now an MSNBC national security analysts also joining us John Holum National National Affairs analyst for NBC News and MSNBC. He is co host and executive producer of showtime's the Circus Evelyn. I want to start with you and where we are on this Ukraine in case you know some of the players in this case you know Kirk Bulker. What do you make of his testimony today. And what more do you think we're going to be learning about it right so as you say Lawrence I know ambassador. Avon rich who also testified or I guess she. She's the one who was removed by Donald Trump from I know her. I know her deputy. He's also being held back by pompeo and I know Kurt Volker and I happen to know from a source close to the investigation a bit of what happened today and a bit of the context I guess again this is second hand at least but essentially it seems that what Volker occur was trying to do and I've known him for a long time so I'm giving him. A lot of benefit of the doubt was to try to maneuver the situation so that he can get president the trump to meet with presidents. Alinsky the new Ukrainian president he thought that Giuliani was feeding a bunch of garbage that he had heard from some Ukrainians and one Ukrainian in particular earlier to president trump and that he needed to get the truth from zone Linski. The problem here is that Kurt volkers the envoy the president's onboard the president should be listening to Kurt Volker. WHO's a longtime never mind that he was appointed by trump. He's also a longtime foreign service officer for many years before he got out and started to work for the McCain Institute so President Trump should've been listening to him but he was listening to her to Guiliani and so- Kurtz trying to maneuver it so that he can inoculate trump and maybe convince convince Giuliani somewhere along the way that there's no problem with Ukraine under this new president and maybe steer him away from the investigation now. I can't speak to what what Kurt knew what what these guys knew clearly the new acting ambassador Bill Taylor relatively new. We'll see how long you laugh. I knew him as well. You know he was also point out to them what they were doing and they shouldn't be doing in the document that the New York Times has is a draft and apparently both Kurt and the Ukrainian go between the same guy that that Giuliani message the statement they wanted the president of Ukraine to make exactly draft three to drop it would not mention Ukrainians got nervous. They didn't want to mention Biden. I don't even know if they wanted to mention prisma the oil company and ultimately both Kurt and the Ukrainian decided. Let's drop this. Kurt didn't didn't get what he wanted though either because he wanted a separate meeting with President Trump and presidents Alinsky not on the sidelines of the UN meeting because it would have been a bigger deal to have it at the White House John Heilemann the by the way this isn't available reading of the evidence when you look at all this evidence you you can look at at at Volker for example and say this is either a guy who as as the text says is part of this scheme to withhold old aid for a for a political campaign favorite you could see him as part of that or you could see him as someone who is struggling under the burden of that desire liar created by Rudy Giuliani Donald trump and he's trying to get to the right place and he's trying to get Ukraine to the right place and he's saying look just say this. Let let trump here. When you say this and then everything will be okay? I want to express any lack of interest in that topic because Volcker and there's a lot of psychoanalysis that's involved in that. I just go back to the beginning of what's what happened today. which is the? United States went out and and not has already confessed to this crime but then kind of doubled golden tripled down on the crime to your point Lawrence. He does seem to think that he understands. I think now that their facts in contention here and given that is now been explained to him that since there are no facts in dispute you could argue process right you can say. Democrats are in league with the whistle blower. Somehow shifts shifty. You can say all that stuff but on the facts facts of it the only way out for him. Now is basically say yes. I did this thing because it's clear I did and it's okay and and to make the point that it's okay is the best way to make that is just do it again and do it as publicly as possible in the most flaming gratuitous way as you can and watching this thing happened today. I will say I arrived in Washington today from having been on a west coast making the circus for this this this week and came here looking for a Republican any Republican any Republican who would come on camera to talk to me about what's going on to maybe the worst day in the history of my life. Try to book a Republican in Washington to talk about Donald Trump because there's no one who wants to get within a mile of a camera on this day. That's how bad this day was. Donald trump that even his most stalwart defenders are like no thank you. I don't really early. Wa WanNa get near the camera. That's how bad what happened. This morning was for trump in terms of just the way the politics of shaping

"Well good Wednesday afternoon from Washington. I'm Chuck Todd and this is the chuck todd odd cast to say that a lot has happened in twenty. Four hours is a bit of an understatement. It feels like ever twenty four minutes. We have a bit of an update but a lot is is happening. Tuesday night House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave a formal address to the nation where she announced an impeachment inquiry after president trump asked Ukraine to investigate his potential twenty twenty opponent Joe Biden Wednesday morning the White House released notes very specific notes. It's not don't call it a transcript but it almost reads like a transcript from the the president's phone call with Ukrainian president so let's keep and now we finally know for sure what trump did say about joe and hundred plus. This whole episode is forcing the media to reckon with questions of fairness what aboutism and how to cover this whole episode and later in the show. I'm going to sit down with columnist and Baseball Fan. George will get some historical perspective on where we we are and yes talk about the nets who did clinch and his cubbies who actually did the nets a favor by helping them clinch with me today to begin this conversation politico senior. Washington correspondent Co author Playbook Anna Palmer Evelyn Farkas former deputy assistant secretary of defense for Russia Ukraine and Eurasia the most importantly she knows how these notes and transcripts of phone calls or paid. Hello Miss Farkas thanks for inviting me his Palmer as is as always a pleasure. Thank you let me start with. We're actually going to start with what we have now and then go backwards. I mean I do WanNa get into the. I still don't know how house is going to do. This and I want to get into the process of all of this. That's let's get to the substance of why we're here and that is what did the president say to the president of Ukraine so we have these notes. Evelyn first of all there is a citation tation on here this White House release it is to give everybody a sense of what it is and I and I know some of you have seen it online but there are basically five pages. It's it's mostly closely. It reads more like a transcript the notes Evelyn and yet there is a cautionary note. It says a memorandum of telephone conversations. This is from the federal government a memorandum. Emma random of a telephone conversation is not verbatim transcript of a discussion the text in this document wreck records the notes and recollections of situation room duty officers and National Security Council policy staff assigned to listen and memorialize the conversation in written form as the conversation takes place a number the factors can affect the accuracy of the recording including poor telecommunications connections and variations in accent and or interpretation the word in audible audible is used to indicate portions of a conversation that the note taker was unable to here so Evelyn translate that for us so basically most of us when we think of a transcript. We think it's an audio recording that somebody then put into words on paper right. That's not what this is. Usually what happens is the White House. It doesn't feel the need to record the president's conversations because the president knows what he said in in this case. It's so long so far. It's always been a he and did that a couple of times by the way the whistle blower they referred to the whistle blower twice as a he and I'm thinking no some messed up and actually though I I thought Nancy Pelosi might have said he doesn't mean it is it doesn't mean it's a he. Some of that is yeah yeah so in any event but what I meant. Is that so far we've only we had a president. That's a he so he knows what what happened in the conversation but they write it down so that they have a record so that they can. The staff can refer back to it. They can share it within the Department within the government rather 'cause usually business is being conducted yeah okay. There's always a reason for the call yeah. Maybe it's an arm sale. Maybe it's a treaty eighty issue. Maybe it's a trade deal. I mean there's a million things and this call actually was supposed to be a call about Ukrainian relations. How are we doing helping Ukraine rain. Stick up to Russia. How can we help this new president. WHO's fighting corruption right Anna Palmer instead it is one subject I I mean. I have to say this. Almost transcript right can no one. I don't call it a transcript transcript. The note is more damning then I thought it would be. I think it's stunning. I actually really we're talking about this. Jake Sherman and I are this morning g. Chat what we're doing playbook in I was saying I I think Democrats might have gotten out in front of their seasons. They don't know what this report contains. They don't know what the complaint contains. The notes complaint contained already. This is where this the narrator says Adam Schefter APPs up conversations with our okay but just to to I mean really happened so fast fast yesterday on Capitol Hill and clearly I think we I was in the capital earlier this morning before I came to record this. All of us. Reporters were reading it at the same time saying can can you believe it is so the talking point from trump defenders well. There's no quid pro. Quo Okay the president. Does it say do this or else. Okay that is true but here let me read a portion of this. Don't call transcript Evelyn. Here's his Alinsky inskeep to the president. I would also like to thank you for your great support. In the area of defense. We are ready to continue to cooperate for the next step specifically. We are almost ready to buy more javelin from the United States for defense purposes trump's immediate response according to this notation transcript. I would like you to do us a favor though burst thing out of his mouth according to this because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine they say crowd strike and then of course he goes into this. It is clear that the president president meaning trump is trying not to spe- specific in what he's asking. He seems to be smart enough to know he doesn't want to essentially make it an open and shut case but my gosh this is innuendo up the Anyang right. I mean it's like the Godfather Godfather you know. You don't have to tell your underlings what they need to do. And in this case frankly speaking the president of Ukraine is kind of like an underlying because he's he's asking for assistance. He's relying on US assistance in order for his country to survive so so he says thanks for the assistance and we know we're going to get more well well. No let me let let's not. Let's not paraphrase okay. Let's read what he says. How would you interpret this Alinsky. We are great friends and you you. Mr President have friends in our country so we can continue our strategic partnership. I also plan to surround myself with great people in addition to that investigation I guarantee as the the president of Ukraine that all the investigations will be done openly and candidly that I can assure you then president trump good because I heard you at a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down and that's really unfair. Well obviously the prosecutor. The president's referring to is the prosecutor that everybody except Vladimir Putin thought thought was corrupt. I mean it's just pretty stunning before but just the fact that he continues to go down this road so specifically. How is I want to get a lawyer in here. This is implied. Quid pro quo. I mean yeah right. I mean basically you have today all of the Republicans that went up to the White House and have the talking talking point which is saying this is not quid pro quo but it's I mean it's up to the line. It's it's an implicit. Yes you do this for me and then I'll do this for you yeah and that is exactly the way by the way Vladimir Putin operates. I already miss learn. It's very transactional and here's the thing he has the gall to say we have have problems in America to this guy. WHO's people are fighting right now. I mean seriously they're fighting and dying today. What could he be referring to if it wasn't Paul Manafort yeah now I mean that's what I'm trying to. What could he be referring to when he says we've had these in you know I mean. Let me read this quote again. Our country entry has been through a lot in Ukraine knows a lot about it yeah. There's only one thing he's referring to that that we've been through that. Ukraine knows about in his mind. That's the muller sounds like President Putin because has he's blaming he somehow blaming Ukraine for problem yes for his problems and the reality is yes there was a ledger where the previous corrupt president president of Ukraine wrote down that he gave Paul manafort billions of dollars and that ultimately woke up the US government and guess what a single one of those were used in any part of the case against Paul Manafort they didn't have I talked to the people close to the prosecution before they did not use any of that because as they said it's Ukraine we're not sure I mean it is by the way it was probably a wire transfer cash but manafort was always able to say well. They didn't give me cash in those numbers. We know that there are a whole bunch of what but the case against Manafort you you know how much it relied on Ukraine zero according to the prosecution right I mean the other thing I thought was pretty telling was how often he invoked Attorney General Bill Bar what is that about I mean everybody was expecting the region Saturday and that was that was kind of expected but I mean basically saying you should be working in concert with the US Attorney General if multiple times he refers to bar and here in Bar had issue a bizarre denial today that now is going when you have to issue a denial for the transcript just released. That's not good yeah and I mean honestly. It's disturbing because the other I guess the intelligence component of this is that Alinsky I agree now whether he was just being nice to president trump because frankly speaking the guy has no choice or not it doesn't matter he agreed then as long as this was a secret this phone call all in this agreement the Ukrainian government and any other government who had information about this phone call by the way Russia was probably listening from from Eastern Europe would've I've known and that's blackmail. That's an ability to blackmail the US government and of course president trump. We still don't know the whistleblower complaint and we still don't know if there's other actions. Sion's within and around a ten day period that that are quite Evelyn you are. You are tight on time with me today and I know that I'm sorry I have one one more question. I'm GonNa make you answer before you leave the trash talking of another foreign leader he trash talks markle which he loves to TRASK talks. Merckel to the the President Ukraine now. I'm sure it's not the first time in American president has reminded explain how President Obama might have reminded another country that hey. We've been more helpful to you then. You're you're. You're you're you're over there that you keep it is there. Are there ways other. American presidents would would send a message like that. Now you never president to President did say it that way. President would say hey. We gave you more help than any other because it's goes without saying I mean we're the number one power in the world okay. We don't have to say that I mean it's it's. It's like if you're the wealthiest hang all the dinners for everyone. You know run around saying hey look at me on paying for all this stuff for you. you do it because you're you're generous and it's actually in your interest somehow as a nation. you know there was another another point though that I thought was really unhelpful for Ukraine because these people are fighting for their lives and the Ukrainian president feels the need to then put down the European Union because we know he knows the psychology of our president and that's not helpful either for Ukraine now that this is out in the open especially the amazing thing here is that he clearly got the memo and how to how how to talk to Donald Trump but you need something like the landscape.

"Well good Wednesday afternoon from Washington. I'm Chuck Todd and this is the chuck todd odd cast to say that a lot has happened in twenty. Four hours is a bit of an understatement. It feels like ever twenty four minutes. We have a bit of an update but a lot is is happening. Tuesday night House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave a formal address to the nation where she announced an impeachment inquiry after president trump asked Ukraine to investigate his potential twenty twenty opponent Joe Biden Wednesday morning the White House released notes very specific notes. It's not don't call it a transcript but it almost reads like a transcript from the the president's phone call with Ukrainian president so let's keep and now we finally know for sure what trump did say about joe and hundred plus. This whole episode is forcing the media to reckon with questions of fairness what aboutism and how to cover this whole episode and later in the show. I'm going to sit down with columnist and Baseball Fan. George will get some historical perspective on where we we are and yes talk about the nets who did clinch and his cubbies who actually did the nets a favor by helping them clinch with me today to begin this conversation politico senior. Washington correspondent Co Author Playbook Anna Palmer Evelyn Farkas former deputy assistant secretary of defense for Russia Ukraine and Eurasia the most importantly she knows how these notes and transcripts of phone calls or paid. Hello Miss Farkas thanks for inviting me his Palmer as is as always a pleasure. Thank you let me start with. We're actually going to start with what we have now and then go backwards. I mean I do WanNa get into the. I still don't know how house is going to do. This and I want to get into the process of all of this. That's let's get to the substance of why we're here and that is what did the president say to the president of Ukraine so we have these notes. Evelyn first of all there is a citation tation on here this White House release it is to give everybody a sense of what it is and I and I know some of you have seen it online but there are basically five pages. It's it's mostly closely. It reads more like a transcript the notes Evelyn and yet there is a cautionary note. It says a memorandum of telephone conversations. This is from the federal government a memorandum. Emma random of a telephone conversation is not verbatim transcript of a discussion the text in this document wreck records the notes and recollections of situation room duty officers and National Security Council policy staff assigned to listen and memorialize the conversation in written form as the conversation takes place a number the factors can affect the accuracy of the recording including poor telecommunications connections and variations in accent and or interpretation the word in audible audible is used to indicate portions of a conversation that the note taker was unable to here so Evelyn translate that for us so basically most of us when we think of a transcript. We think it's an audio recording that somebody then put into words on paper right. That's not what this is. Usually what happens is the White House. It doesn't feel the need to record the president's conversations because the president knows what he said in in this case. It's so long so far. It's always been a he and did that a couple of times by the way the whistle blower they referred to the whistle blower twice as a he and I'm thinking no some messed up and actually though I I thought Nancy Pelosi might have said he doesn't mean it is it doesn't mean it's a he. Some of that is yeah yeah so in any event but what I meant. Is that so far we've only we had a president. That's a he so he knows what what happened in the conversation but they write it down so that they have a record so that they can. The staff can refer back to it. They can share it within the Department within the government rather 'cause usually business is being conducted yeah okay. There's always a reason for the call yeah. Maybe it's an arm sale. Maybe it's a treaty eighty issue. Maybe it's a trade deal. I mean there's a million things and this call actually was supposed to be a call about Ukrainian relations. How are we doing helping Ukraine rain. Stick up to Russia. How can we help this new president. WHO's fighting corruption right Anna Palmer instead it is one subject I I mean. I have to say this. Almost transcript right can no one. I don't call it a transcript transcript. The note is more damning then I thought it would be. I think it's stunning. I actually really we're talking about this. Jake Sherman and I are this morning g. Chat what we're doing playbook in I was saying I I think Democrats might have gotten out in front of their seasons. They don't know what this report contains. They don't know what the complaint contains. The notes complaint contained they're already. This is where this the narrator says Adam Schefter APPs up conversations with our okay but just to to I mean really happened so fast fast yesterday on Capitol Hill and clearly I think we I was in the capital earlier this morning before I came to record this. All of us. Reporters were reading it at the same time saying can can you believe it is so the talking point from trump defenders well. There's no quid pro. Quo Okay the president. Does it say do this or else. Okay that is true but here let me read a portion of this. Don't call transcript Evelyn. Here's his Alinsky inskeep to the president. I would also like to thank you for your great support. In the area of defense. We are ready to continue to cooperate for the next step specifically. We are almost ready to buy more javelin from the United States for defense purposes trump's immediate response according to this notation transcript. I would like you to do us a favor though burst thing out of his mouth according to this because our country has been through a lot and Ukraine knows a lot about it. I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine they say crowd strike and then of course he goes into this. It is clear that the president president meaning trump is trying not to spe- specific in what he's asking. He seems to be smart enough to know he doesn't want to essentially make it an open and shut case but my gosh this is innuendo up the Anyang right. I mean it's like the Godfather Godfather you know. You don't have to tell your underlings what they need to do. And in this case frankly speaking the president of Ukraine is kind of like an underlying because he's he's asking for assistance. He's relying on US assistance in order for his country to survive so so he says thanks for the assistance and we know we're going to get more well well. No let me let let's not. Let's not paraphrase okay. Let's read what he says. How would you interpret this Alinsky. We are great friends and you you. Mr President have friends in our country so we can continue our strategic partnership. I also plan to surround myself with great people in addition to that investigation I guarantee as the the president of Ukraine that all the investigations will be done openly and candidly that I can assure you then president trump good because I heard you at a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down and that's really unfair. Well obviously the prosecutor. The president's referring to is the prosecutor that everybody except Vladimir Putin thought thought was corrupt. I mean it's just pretty stunning before but just the fact that he continues to go down this road so specifically. How is I want to get a lawyer in here. This is implied. Quid pro quo. I mean yeah right. I mean basically you have today all of the Republicans that went up to the White House and have the talking talking point which is saying this is not quid pro quo but it's I mean it's up to the line. It's it's an implicit. Yes you do this for me and then I'll do this for you yeah and that is exactly the way by the way Vladimir Putin operates. I already miss learn. It's very transactional and here's the thing he has the gall to say we have have problems in America to this guy. WHO's people are fighting right now. I mean seriously they're fighting and dying today. What could he be referring to if it wasn't Paul Manafort yeah now I mean that's what I'm trying to. What could he be referring to when he says we've had these in you know I mean. Let me read this quote again. Our country entry has been through a lot in Ukraine knows a lot about it yeah. There's only one thing he's referring to that that we've been through that. Ukraine knows about in his mind. That's the muller sounds like President Putin because has he's blaming he somehow blaming Ukraine for problem yes for his problems and the reality is yes there was a ledger where the previous corrupt president president of Ukraine wrote down that he gave Paul manafort billions of dollars and that ultimately woke up the US government and guess what a single one of those alligators were used in any part of the case against Paul Manafort they didn't have I talked to the people close to the prosecution before they did not use any of that because as they said it's Ukraine we're not sure I mean it is by the way it was probably a wire transfer cash but manafort was always able to say well. They didn't give me cash in those numbers. We know that there are a whole bunch of what but the case against Manafort you you know how much it relied on Ukraine zero according to the prosecution right I mean the other thing I thought was pretty telling was how often he invoked Attorney General Bill Bar what is that about I mean everybody was expecting the region Saturday and that was that was kind of expected but I mean basically saying you should be working in concert with the US Attorney General if multiple times he refers to bar and here in Bar had issue a bizarre denial today that now is going when you have to issue a denial for the transcript just released. That's not good yeah and I mean honestly. It's disturbing because the other I guess the intelligence component of this is that Alinsky I agree now whether he was just being nice to president trump because frankly speaking the guy has no choice or not it doesn't matter he agreed then as long as this was a secret this phone call all in this agreement the Ukrainian government and any other government who had information about this phone call by the way Russia was probably listening from from Eastern Europe would've I've known and that's blackmail. That's an ability to blackmail the US government and of course president trump. We still don't know the whistleblower complaint and we still don't know if there's other actions. Sion's within and around a ten day period that that are quite Evelyn you are. You are tight on time with me today and I know that I'm sorry I have one one more question. I'm GonNa make you answer before you leave the trash talking of another foreign leader he trash talks markle which he loves to trask talks Merckel to the the President Ukraine now. I'm sure it's not the first time in American president has reminded explain how President Obama might have reminded another country that hey. We've been more helpful to you then. You're you're. You're you're you're over there that you keep it is there. Are there ways other. American presidents would would send a message like that. Now you never president to President did say it that way.

"American public should know because the president has said, well what he knows his top secret. The American public might not be able to handle. Sorry. Mr president. Don't treat us like children. Well, because you're going to continue if you continue to play this game. Forget about the political negative political ramifications for the president. Possibly think about long term the risk for every citizen on the on the greater level. That's what we're talking. Yes. That's what I'm concerned about I want this. The the the political lives of those people are secondary. Compared to the American public knowing what happened in the two thousand sixteen election, and after the twenty primarily not, you know, I I wanna know what happened before the election and what they did. But primarily I want to see everything that happened after the election. How the Democrats if they how I believe they did because there's enough evidence to show that they did based on their admissions himselves they tried to get it out to try to discredit the president. Right. We know that from Farkas who has an infarct Evelyn Farkas who said that already so already know that's the case that was their goal to try to try to destroy the legitimacy of the two thousand sixteen election to put doubt in people's minds. It was legit by spreading. The dossier which said the president, you know, cooperated with the collude with the Russians to hack the election hacked, the DNC change outcome of the election and that was their goal to get that information out. So we know that's the case. I want to know everything the American whatever happens afterwards happens whether it's a fair sentence or not I if somebody gets prosecuted through the process, I want the full accounting of what happened. So the American people can see it. Yes. And I don't want a democrat. And I don't want a Republican telling me I can't handle it. And I shouldn't be able to see it, right? Who's with me? Well, are we looking for Justice for the American people or political Justice for candidate? Right. Are we looking for the truth? That's what I want. I want to know what happened. If you're a true public servant. The only thing that matters is what what the American public what the effect on the American public is. I know Democrats don't wanna know what happened. No. Most Republicans do. Yep. They do eight six six ninety.
