"Center for Language Processing Quick Example was founded by eleven years ago after I spent fifteen years in the high tech industry as a research engineer vice-president technology, and CEO. Since then the centre has grown to be the largest research. Sentiment is bound helpless on Applied Research Field With project completed for the defense industry high companies, the medical field and more. Most recently, the language processing has been researching the use of speech processing, not sufficient diligence algorithms for providing a quicken, readily available three diagnostic assessment of Covid, nineteen infection we belden need for human intervention. When it comes to a rapidly spreading virus such as covid nineteen with millions of potential carriers Goud the global population. It is essential die identified like carry-ons virus at the early stages confection in order to private as testing efforts and break the chain of mission while it's great to hear there's just so much going on in Israel in the in the research failed, and specifically around language processing, you guys are really applying it to one of the most worthy and needed causes at the moment, the pre diagnosis of covid nineteen. Completely, understand the need to prioritize testing efforts. Tests are in short supply so you really do have to get to the right people i. I'm rendered. There was some talk around whether it was possible to use voice for the diagnosis of Kavita. This is a couple of months ago. Remember I'm on the on the what's that groups and things? I'm part of people were skeptical that it was actually possible. So tell us. Is it actually possible to use voice files, voice recording speech even coughs and non? Verbal. nonverbal recordings of of a human voice to be able to diagnose covid nineteen. That is precisely what our current research is into. After consulting with physicians specializing oratory disease and ear nose and throat, as well as with doctors conflict within coronavirus patients, we learned that among the earliest symptoms. So covid nineteen. Vocal the. And throat infection. These affect human localization patterns. We are modeling samples of speech coughing and breathing from both symptomatic and Azima the night to carry us to compare with models taken from healthy subjects. AUTOMO-. We are also modeling vocalisations subject the tested negative for covid nineteen yet are exhibiting similar symptoms shot such as those infected by the common flu. DC will a loaded the commodity who differentiate between someone who is likely a carrier and someone? Well. That makes perfect sense I mean obviously someone who is infected and is showing symptoms is going to sound different to someone who is isn't so I completely understand how you can train these machine learning models to recognize the difference I'm fascinated by the ability to be able to distinguish between different diseases though because I would imagine the you know if you have one type of disease or another, the reaction of your body would largely be the same the produce flam in the lungs which would come up in a fatal throw in different ways I'll be really really interested to know what the difference is.

"A little bit about how he did this. What the purpose was and sort of more generally about using these tactics as a way of kind of undermining the West. Yes, I think basically Putin learned quite early in his presidency about. How easy it was to kind of use capitalism as a tool against the West because I, think from early on. It became clear as he was taking over A. Cash flows in the Russian economy when he was jailing the country's one time richest man Makovsky and taking over his old company, the most Western investors didn't take care about how the Kremlin was essentially subverting the rule of law and the entire kind of justice and legal system to take a cash. As long as they were in bull on Bowdoin, getting a piece of the action, he very correctly calculated that for most of Western investments investors, sort of prophet would be the overriding kind of motivation factor. Most people didn't really care what he was doing, too to achieve his goals, and so he could kind of identify this weakness quite early on. As sort of Russian cash began flooding into the West. The West was really hoping that sort of even though Russia was under this sort of X.. KGB officers control that there were sort of. Disturbing elements most western leaders were hoping that nevertheless of Russian IPO's in London and sort of a Russian sheriff rings in London were going to mean that sort of Russian companies and Russia itself would I event would have to follow Western models of corporate governance, and that Russia was indeed the the more kind of looked for moved its money into the West. The more it would eventually kind of joined the western kind of lead global order. It turned out. That's not quite the case. especially when kind of places like London sort of so-called light-touch regulation where you don't have to disclose much of you can still be pretty non-transparent and get away with the major listing on the London Stock Exchange. We've seen numerous examples of companies later delisting when they face massive corporate governance problems so I think instead of sort of Russia joining the western, order. Order essentially this this flood of cash into the West meant the Russia was able to begin corrupting and undermining Western institutions, and the problem is is I mean I've seen this time and again. That's a western Lewis and London bankers. They didn't really particularly care where the cash was coming from. If it was stolen cash. Okay, it's not really our problem, but it's not. It's not. Really a big issue, because so, what if it's stolen cash from Russia because that just means that Russia is week. Right rather than it being a security threat to the west and I think what's been fundamental. Misunderstanding is the degree to which many Russian businessmen of beholden to the Kremlin for holding onto the wealth that because they're all their businesses based in Russia. They own their businesses only through Putin's great, so if you have a big chunk of cash, the West I was told by one Moscow tycoon Peter out that if he got a call from Putin, for instance they, he had to spend one billion dollars on this or that project he. He couldn't say no 'cause. He's behold into the Kremlin. You have to follow the orders. That's what the system is, and whether that cash is going to be used for strategic projects in Russia or outside I mean we didn't go into that type of detail, but it's clear that a oligarchs instruments of the Kremlin's command, so I have to ask you, and this is something that a cough has written a lot about where does donald trump fit into this picture? According to your reporting, and we know that he has been throughout his career as a as a businessman, the beneficiary of questionable sources of Russian money, and that he has also associated. With unsavory Russian figures. So, what did you find out in in looking into trump and and these relationships a? Day, I really enjoyed reading. Reading Mike's book about a Russian Roulette I think my book comes to it from. The side it's like it's the Russian side at the equation, which by the way the paperback of Russian Roulette is out the same day as your book on on Tuesdays so twin twin together. Russia files said it was great. It was great to read the the US side of the Shenanigans, but I think what I was trying to look into some of the the Russian money men who'd interacted with trump in one way or another sort of over the years, and what the reporting very clearly showed that there was a network of of Moscow money men, many of whom were sort of a intellect with each other who'd been orbiting trump, almost since the end of the eighty s or one of them. was was very illustrative. Actually his name was shallow chiggers ski and he was friends with many of the individuals that we later saw coating trump whether it be from the Bayrock real estate development firm that sort of worked on so many construction projects with trump, or you know an via the financial backers of fun, but to get into ski known trump actually since November nineteen ninety he was. Introduced to him by the Atlantic City casino operators. Chagrin ski himself was kind of very illustrative of the. how the KGB were was sending money into the West through individuals at after the Soviet, full jigger inskeep started out in life as an antiques smuggler. He was able to leave the Soviet Union. Before the fall he was allowed out of the country. Indeed, he was encouraged to leave by former senior foreign intelligence operatives, and a you know he was very quickly. Very quickly, befriended trump and he. Was In orbit of of money men around him food for many years to come so I. Think you know I? Think it debate the reporting basically. I think the the enduring influence of some of these networks that were first established as the Soviet. Union fell and I think you know I think it's interesting to look at for instance Felix Sater's ties to Russian intelligence. Obviously, a lot of the reporting has focused on sort of the efforts to lure trump to Moscow with promises of these sort of big blinky trump towers where he'd get to earn huge commissions, and some went by just putting his name on the tower, unknown of the towers. Wherever built in Moscow, but they were certainly built in the US and trump is and yet to be disclosed amounts of money from some of the projects that Felix. Saito was working with him on the. Real GonNa say John Bolton in his new book, says Putin has played trump like a fiddle. Does that sound right to you? I think trump is easily has been always easily impressed by sort of a Moscow. It's architecture. It's hospitality. It's women. I think for Russia. Trump was a very. Kind of you know his very convenient vehicle for funneling cash into the West initially at what point t became a political opportunity. It's anyone's guess, but trump is certainly wowed by Putin I'm not sure he was kind of ever a long-term. Manchurian candidate.

"I mean the whole pay to was not quite so click because thing that was sort of quite obvious when looking a bit closer at what he was up to addressed in was that he was believed to be part of a faction of Soviet intelligence. The foreign intelligence own that was preparing. In case, the communist regimes would collapse, said been they were sort of the elite of the KGB. They were traveling wildly they. They could see the Soviet. Planned economy was not going to be able to compete against the West. They knew they needed reforms. They knew that descent was rising across the eastern bloc against the heavy hand of the state and the security services and sort of the lower living standards, and they knew that basically time was running out, and so what Putin and his allies in Dresden. We'll start engaged in some the. Tech smuggling operations were also used as a way to siphon cash through front companies so that they could preserve their intelligence networks, even after the Soviet full, even after collapse of the communist regime in East Germany and I think what did happen. was they were preparing? They were hoping that behind the scenes they could retain control who in dressed was party secretary a position that would put him in touch with the Dresden communist leader at the time, Hans modrow he'd been picked by the Soviets as the person, they want to lead the country through Perestroika tight reforms. That didn't quite come off, but would have put also Putin and equates of influential position, but what did happen, they were preparing preparing, but the speed of the collapse took them by surprise. They weren't prepared for that, and then they had to destroy all these documents. Putin was waiting still for for Moscow to. Defend them as protesters were gathering outside the KGB villa. Yes, there was that great moment where he called a sort of the the neighboring Soviet base for troops to help defend them, and got this answer by saying Moscow is silent, which seemed to recover kind of Berberat around his head forever that he couldn't believe that the the empire was collapsing, even though laid. We've seen the writing on the wall of quite some time I. Think the speed of events really took them by surprise, but I think. What we have to realize about sort of Putin and most of his KGB friends was that they kind of held no candle for communism. Indeed many of them believe that it was sort of communism, which betrayed the empire that communalism sensitive failed them in the great imperial competition against the West it was communist and the planned economy that was holding them back, so it's very natural. When Putin did return to the Soviet Union that then sort of was sent to attach himself to the country's Democratic leader, indeed, he was told to do so by his former mental, and it's kind of also really kind of a case in point for sort of how the KGB essentially stayed in the background through the. The tumultuous era of of the Yeltsin reforms really much really did Salou remain a power behind the scenes in this is what the the West is underestimated when Putin was in saint, Petersburg also funneling cash into into offshore networks through kind of shady deals, and so on, and mostly the West schemes is just kind of just corruption that that they were sort of figuring out cash to line the pockets, but actually they weren't. They were funneling cash into companies run by KGB associates, so they could keep networks going so what he learned as as KGB officer. In terms of the smuggling in terms of the networks and relationships built, he was able to use over time to kind of build the Klepto security state that he now has reigned over for two decades. Yeah, yes, I mean essentially these methods that were kind of prototypes for what we were all to see to see later, indeed a sort of ahead of the Soviet full. The KGB was again. The foreign intelligence on was was trying to persuade the Communist Party to create an invisible economy to shift its assets into. Into the West so they could continue to survive in conditions of a market economy always co, the communist regime collapsed and the KGB the foreign intelligence were the ones who retained a kind of hold of the keys, and really the way they operated then through a net where they created networks of loyal custodians who are fronts for the regime, and this is precisely how we see Putin operate today. He has sort of his managed. He and his guys have managed to take over the country strategic it cash flows. Oligarchs A in Russia all beholden to him to maintain hold of their property in essence, they act as trusted custodians for the Kremlin, and they can sort of sent to pursue strategic tasks full the Kremlin whether it be at home or abroad, one of continuing themes in Putin's career is a ruthlessness about achieving his aims and you sort of go through some of the more controversial episodes in Putin's rise and his presidency and one that has always been hotly debated for years was the nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine apartment bombings. which was publicly attributed, these are series of bombings of apartment buildings in Moscow that killed civilians parent terrorist acts that was publicly blamed on the Chechen rebels, but there have been questions about that. Those episodes and weather the FSB's successor to the KGB may have been implicated in staging those bombing, so Putin can crack down on the Chechen. Rebels. Take us through what you found and what you concluded about those apartment bombings, he I think if there's been an awful lot of reporter reporting, trying to get to the bottom of the fsba involvement in these bombings have been. been many reporters who who've looked at this actually fall more closely than me. An initially my book wasn't going to be about sort of any of these terrorist attacks I was trying to sort of follow the money rather than look into these sort of age old questions of FSP involvement, but it became a rather important issue because there was a one Kremlin insider. Insider who is brave enough to speak about what he heard at around that time, I think he told me that basically some point Nikolai partnership, who was the head of the Federal Security Services at the time, heard essentially confessed to him about the FSP's involvement in the bombings. He was very annoyed because already too I, think tool, or maybe even three apartment bombings had. Had already occurred when some very vigilant resin residents, said an apartment in Resin, not too far away from Moscow. Hood uncovered some sacks of what looked like explosives in a basement of an apartment building, and they immediately alerted the authorities they authorities came tested the sex, and indeed the initial conclusion was they contain hexagon, which was the explosive material used to blow up the. Other apartments, but they. The local FSP were very fast on the trail, but soon afterwards. Nikolai partnership the head of the FSP essentially intervened insert no, that was just a training exercise. That wasn't actually hexagon. We've done further tests. And it was just sugar in in those sects and you know, thank you. Residents of resentful being vigilant, we know we can rest safely when there is such great residence as you, but it turned out when partnership was having a conversation with this Kremlin insider, who was who is brave enough to speak. It turned out that partnership was actually fuming. He said that the local authorities his rivals in the interior ministry been close to blowing the entire operation that they nearly caught the FSB red. In sort of planting these Sachs, they've been hot on the trail some cools. I believe there are other reporters who've written about this that some cools were intercepted by the whoever had planted the sex calling back to FSB operatives in Moscow another senior FSB officer A. Former FSBA officer had later recognized a sketch of one of these people who'd planted the sexes, resembling a very much an FSP operative. He'd worked with once soon after he revealed that information. This fulmer FSBA officer found himself in jail for a very long time, so and and this just a quick follow up on that is. This is important because of Putin's response. Response to the apartment bombings. Right I mean he takes the lead. This is when he's actually running for election for president at that time right and he becomes the face of the response to the supposedly. Chechen apartment bombings and very forcefully cracks down launches these air raids, and that helps propel him to the presidency. Yes, it was the moment when he really sort. Sort of came into his own before then he he wasn't ready. Recognized people didn't know who he was. He was just another gray kalisz bureaucrat, but suddenly he was last sort of bounding from helicopters of using colorful language against Chechen terrorists, and we're going to waste them in the outhouse, and the entire Russian nation was essentially cheering this emergence of a strong leader. Leader after all the weaknesses and failings of Yeltsin Catherine you you said that you set out in this book to follow the money and I. I want to ask you a little bit about that. You write about how Putin used Russian money, presumably dirty money to kind of manipulate corrupt and compromise many sort of elite Western figures, bankers, real estate magnates lawyers politicians. Talk a little bit about how he did this. What the purpose was and sort of more generally about using these tactics as a way of kind of undermining the West..

"Putin's later conduct I. The planting of pornographic material that seems to be a early instance of the use of compromise dot com by Putin something that will come back to that. We saw later in his career, and the reaching out to a Neo Nazi kinda presages. Some of what we saw later in the funding of right wing, extremists groups in Europe and political parties. Yeah I.

It was called the Hotel Bellevue. They will have to stay. The older rooms were kitted out with books and photographic equipment. Once Stasi guy. He used with Putin and said yes. We use lots of female agents. Then they were often more effective than us mails, and then the other very disturbing thing, which came up during my reporting was that there was another former associate who is actually a former member of the Red Army Faction or the bottom Meinhof group, and he had a very compelling story to tell I went three times we talk for. I was trying to check everything out. And he told a story in which sort of during these days when he was operating with the Red Army Faction when they were sort of. Bombing US army basis, and the other assassination attempts on prominent Western, West German industrial titans. He said that they were going to Dresden and they were receiving instructions dressed in. There were going that precisely because it was a backwater, it was far away from the spying is at the West, which all concentrating focus on east. Berlin that's where everyone was looking, but no one really paid any attention to Dresden. It was so far away from everyone. They travel into East Berlin on the train. Get into a car to Dresden whether it be admitted by Stasi and Katie be an among these people he said was put in very often. He be taking the lead. He said they wouldn't give them orders, but they'd certainly make suggestions about possible targets and also help them acquire weapons and cash once they were back in the West. He said that they present to them with the list, and they'd make sure that they found an agent or some of the way of getting them the materials. They needed now this. Unfortunately, it's one source. It was impossible to verify because all this. This guy, all these guys colleagues there either in prison or dead I did ask another study colleague of Putin who is sort of deeply involved with Putin then about these this story, he basically just said look. I don't know when it was top secret. We weren't involved. The Russians made sure not tell us everything, and they also made sure to destroy absolutely everything. Another kind of big question mark is the fact that all the Stasi bosses in that particular area didn't wait around to be questioned after Germany's reunification, the full of the wool they all died they. I committed suicide supposedly. Am I remembering this correctly Catherine that the? The Stasi was at the fixture and chief who you interviewed and he said he told you that none of this been had been proved, and it sounds like a somewhat of a veiled warning to you. Since the fixed rate chief that was that was actually another very close. Putin colleague from the KGB who still close with him today, yeah! Yeah. He said you should not try. You should not try to do so yourself. Doesn't seem to have deterred you. Well I! Think is still a lot of questions I'm still fascinated by the sort of the origin story here and how it connects to what Putin has done much later as president of Russia. One thing that I think is a cop did not mention was the interest in poison all the way back in the eighties since there's. Micheals on we've done a lot of reporting and done chose on this podcast about Putin's efforts to assassinate people in London, opponents, rivals, and that sort of thing so i. wonder if you Ju- that connection when you were doing the reporting. Yeah, I guess it's just something that the KGB has always dealt with a I think they see individual life as collateral damage, and if the pursuing a great cause or indeed, if somebody has betrayed them, then I don't think they have any make any bones about sort of getting rid and eliminating them I think it's just something that we've seen. Throughout Putin's career and fortunately, can you tell us? The I'm fascinated by this former red army member who you tracked down, and who says he met with Putin on multiple occasions, and they discussed various terrorist activities that the Red Army would be engaged in and you detail some of those that came later including the killings of the chairman of Deutsche Bank in one, thousand, nine, hundred, nine and the chief of Siemens Technology in nineteen, eighty six. But what can you tell us about this? Red Army? Member how active he was in the Baader Meinhof gang whether he was ever charged with crimes. And how you came to find him. That is a difficult question to answer without revealing too much details about his identity I'd rather not 'cause. He's you know.

"Christie is seen as a Christie acolyte Kirsty Garden the job I think he represented Chris Christie in the bridge gate investigation. He did and I'm told that he is one of the US attorneys who what when the US attorney can't gotTA meeting with the President before he got the jobs extremely rare in Christie was in that meeting, so you can see why bar might want someone. Other than Jeff. Bergman to be an office. Okay well now that you've goaded me to both sides you. I will point out that the former US attorney in that office in the Justice Department you served with under Obama brought the bridge gate case, which was only recently overturned by the supreme. Court nine to nothing, not exactly a stellar record. If one's looking for prosecutorial abuses seems to me that the that might rank up. There given the Supreme Court decision. There's A. A difference between prosecutorial abuse prosecutorial misconduct at a different interpretation of the law I think the supreme. Court's ruling bridge gate was unfortunately consistent with a string of Supreme Court rulings that are basically making it pretty difficult to prosecute public around I agree with that one hundred percent, and that's really alarming. Because you know. We've had many abuses that have been prosecuted by the Justice Department from the McConnell case the former Republican governor of Virginia who was. Convicted of corruption, and that was overturned by the Supreme Court as well so yes, you're entirely right on that I. Did want to point out that bar now has agreed to testify before judiciary on July twenty eighth, so we gotta wait another month for that and on top of everything else. We have the bowl book in which Bolton writes that he went to bar about his concerns with the president's efforts to interfere in ongoing criminal cases most. Most notably, the one involving the Turkish owned bank that was being investigated by Jeffrey Berman's office and you know one of the lines of inquiry one hopes that judiciary gets into bar. Testify under oath is what it Baltin say to you. And how did you respond? Is it true as Bolton writes in his book that you express concern about what the president was doing? I would certainly ask him that question, and it's especially relevant because. That was an sti case and that was held up for months and months and months your waiting for that bank to get died, and the diamond only came. You remember this very odd timing win. We had this discussion with Turkey where they basically invaded northern Syria, and it was in the days after that finally this indicted was returned. It looked very much like there had been a hold on indictment, and then when we had a little when we needed to look tough with Syria be with with Turkey because the president had I given them the green light. All of a sudden, the whole got limited indictment was returned. It was very bad. Timing it I would. Would certainly delve into that someone who worked in the Justice Department for for a long time, and as obviously been around political, politically sensitive cases, just kind of wonder well to two questions, just what the impact you think that this series of controversies involving Bar and the questions about the politicization of the justice. Department has on the people who work in the department. How corrosive is it? What impact does it have on morale? What do you think the long term effect is and the second part of question is just? How unusual is it for two career? Justice Department lawyers who are still working there to come out publicly and testify against their own attorney general. Maybe that would I I can't think of a precedent in recent memory last ten fifteen years when career officials have come and testify, you've seen former officials testify in the middle scandal. You Know Jim Komi, who was the former deputy attorney general came and testified at one point, the US attorneys who were fired in in the US attorney scandal in the Bush administration testified, but they're all former officials and they weren't career people. This is extremely unusual and I. I think it goes to the sort of corrosive nature of what bar has done in the and the cross effects. It's having down inside the department at the line. Attorney level where they're being asked to do things that they don't feel are appropriate. You know Alinsky talked about the fact that you know He. He couldn't sign the revised mellow because it just wasn't appropriate. Under the department's practices, allies is talking about the fact that they allies the. The John Allies is the antitrust official is talking testified to the fact that they were asked to open investigations and subpoenas when there was no reason under the apartment skylights do what they were doing it. Because bar has a personal animus against marijuana companies I, think the long term effects though are not so much inside the department, but really about this post. Watergate, norm that the department should be independent from the White House and that it should make its. Its decision free from politics I. Think the effect of the trump presidency in what's happened at the Justice Department is that the committee that norm has collapsed on the Republican side. I think the worst thing about what's happened is not just. That bar has done what he's done, but that there is no price that he's paying for it. You know look at Berta. Gonzales that his actions in the US attorney scandal were nothing compared to what what is. Nothing compared to what bar has what? There's firm evidence at bars done. And he had resigned his jeep, Barshop GonNa have to and I think what that means is look. If Joe Biden wins the normal snapback because Democrats, number one are committed to independence and the rule of law in the way that Republicans number two. We have an incentive in that we care about scandal and we care about what the New York Times. Says Iraq says about as. As you all say about us, and so there's a political incident not to do it, but I think the next Republican president whoever it is. We're going to see justice. Department fairly similar to this one because I think the commitment to that dorm has just collapsed on the Republican side of the aisle. Although assuming there's a biden presidency I will not be surprised to hear the Republicans suddenly look finding all sorts of improper political motivations going on all. Especially if the Attorney General in a Biden Administration is Adam Schiff. People a lot of people. have been floating his name and they've got a lot of supporters for that position. I have to say on the one detail on the the antitrust. He said this story. That at one point, a third of all cases being.

"Does seem a little fishy to me. It's not it's not too hard to connect those dots. And then and then you add to the fact that he has. A like. Friday night effort to fire the US attorney in the southern district. Does seem to be a pattern of behavior here that that's pretty questionable so i. don't know I just think that hasn't gotten quite as much attention as it probably should. The whole Jesse Liu thing and not sure. What was the problem with Jesse? Lou mean trump didn't like her but I think she was. Pretty respected US attorney. And Senate and Senate confirmed Senate confirmed a dragging her feet on prosecuting Andrew McCabe remember there had been a attempt to prosecute him. That seems to fall apart in the grand jury and the US Attorney's office had not refiled those charges. They tried to go back and follows charges. Of course what she was gone. They still decided not not to bring charge site. That was one thing, but look you're right I. Think they wanted to push her out because she wasn't compliant. And that's what made what was happening in SDN Y so troubling because there was a history in pushing the US attorney in Washington dc out and replacing her. Her with an acting official who was loyal to bar in the same way that that the person who is going to be the acting official? St. Wise is the US Attorney in New Jersey Guy by the name of Craig Carbon Neto carpeting doe. Who is close to Chris? Christie is seen as a Christie acolyte Kirsty Garden the job I think he represented Chris Christie in the bridge gate investigation. He did and I'm told that he is one of the US attorneys who what when the US attorney can't gotTA meeting with the President before he got the jobs extremely rare in Christie was in that meeting, so you can see why bar might want someone. Other than Jeff. Bergman to be an office. Okay well now that you've goaded me to both sides you. I will point out that the former US attorney in that office in the Justice Department you served with under Obama brought the bridge gate case, which was only recently overturned by the supreme. Court nine to nothing, not exactly a stellar record. If one's looking for prosecutorial abuses seems to me that the that might rank up. There given the Supreme Court decision. There's A. A difference between prosecutorial abuse prosecutorial misconduct at a different interpretation of the law I think the supreme. Court's ruling bridge gate was unfortunately consistent with a string of Supreme Court rulings that are basically making it pretty difficult to prosecute public around I agree with that one hundred percent, and that's really alarming. Because you know. We've had many abuses that have been prosecuted by the Justice Department from the McConnell case the former Republican governor of Virginia who was. Convicted of corruption, and that was overturned by the Supreme Court as well so yes, you're entirely right on that I. Did want to point out that bar now has agreed to testify before judiciary on July twenty eighth, so we gotta wait another month for that and on top of everything else. We have the bowl book in which Bolton writes that he went to bar about his concerns with the president's efforts to interfere in ongoing criminal cases most.

"I mean these were the two justices who have been the most trump friendly on the DC circuit. You look at some of the other cases that come to that circuit to release his tax returns and issues involving congressional subpoenas. These judges are I. Think it's inaugural. They're the most pro-trump judges on that circuit I don't think the rest of the residents. I should point out that Judge Gleeson who was appointed by Sullivan as the amicus to file that meek as brief, which really was a powerful brief recital of the of the facts in the Flynn case has already asked the court the full court whether he should continue to file the motion. He was planning to file in response to what the Justice Department's position was given the court of appeals ruling, so he's asked for guidance. It's been pointed out that the ruling doesn't take effect for twenty one days so there is a period of four Flynn is entirely. Released for many federal prosecution, so we'll see, but I was gonNA. Ask you to put this in the context of everything else. That's been going on at the bar. Justice Department over the last few weeks. We had this hearing today before. House judiciary with a former Muller prosecutor, testifying to the irregularities in the Roger Stone sentencing procedure, we had the firing of Jeffrey Berman, the US attorney in the southern district over the weekend. This does seem to be a remarkable period of turmoil at the Justice Department. Yeah, I think the statement from errands Alinsky to the house. House today was most significant evidence of corruption at the Justice Department since Watergate, I I don't think there's anything that you can find holds a candle to the corruption that he that he revealed in his statement, and I think we don't know with respect to the SDN. Why file Why issue? We don't yet know why bar tried to force an ultimate did force the US attorney out, but we know that his explanation is public explanation about it. His Ex haven't been true. You know I saying that US. Attorney had agreed to resign. That wasn't true. And then I think the explanation they still make isn't isn't true. which they were just tried to create a spot for Jay Clayton because he's such a good guy, the chair the SEC and he wanted to York trying to spot for him. If you're trying to create a spot for him, you don't need to move Jeff Bergman out right away or in two weeks. You can nominate him and Jeff Bourbon can stay in his job until it. It gets there. They were trying to fill it with an acting US attorney. Who would be more compliant in the same way? They did in DC. They got someone more comply into the did what bar wanted in stone and flint cases I think. Far has completely politicized. The Justice Department and I think the troubling thing is there appear to be very few guardrails, and very through consequences for hold on I want to push back on the on the not since Watergate analogy, because we hear a lot of that, it came up at the hearing today and look, there's no question. There's a lot of troubling developments at the Justice Department, and reason to be deeply suspicious, but at the end of the day the dust up over the stone sentencing was a process controversy it. It didn't affect the bottom line at all stone was convicted. He's going to prison. The judge ruled the is she ruled the sentence she gave was actually in line with. With what the Bar Justice Department asked for not what the Muller prosecutors asked for so yes, I get that it was highly irregular and even improper for political motives to influence the sentencing recommendation, but it was only a sentencing recommendation, and it did not affect the actual outcome of Roger Stone going to prison for charges, for which he was convicted in federal court. Process at the Department of Justice is the most important thing the reasons for why make the decisions you do are the most important thing, and if the the department is making decisions, not based on the facts, not based on the law now based on an impartial analysis of what the right outcome out of. But doing it for political reasons and always coming down on the side of the president's interest, that is the worst thing that can happen at the Justice Department and we see it happening over and over again. I, you see it in the case, you see Flynn case I mean. The Antitrust Division for Christ's sake. The testimony I trust official that bar is making these crazy decisions to politicize the antitrust of most attorneys-general barely pay attention to anti-trust to investigate the marijuana industry and. Enter investigative audible automobile manufacturers for signing an emissions agreement with California the administration didn't like a policy reasons the idea that you would investigate us. Law Enforcement Powers Because you disagree with policy decisions is just completely anti away. The Department Oughta work so I I disagree that it's just kind of a process. Foul motive matters more than anything when you look at as wide department does the things that does, but I mean in the case of the. The stone sentencing errands alinsky testimony. What was so convincing to you? But he did not have firsthand knowledge of this right I mean he didn't talk to any of the political decision-makers about it. It was it was hearsay. Testimony was hearsay testimony, what was so powerful about about his testimony given that fact, so two things one just analysis of how correct their original sentencing recommendation was, which isn't to say that Roger Stone that the judge was wrong. Wrong to give him a lower sentence than they recommended is that the department is required under department policy? Put in place by Jeff sessions by the way is required to recommend the most serious senate's under the sentencing guidelines and that there was no justifiable reason to do that, so if justifiable reason to do it. What is the reason that they did that? And what? He says his supervisor j? P Cooney alive a career prosecutor in the US Attorney's. Attorney's office told him it was for political reasons. Now you're right. He got that from JP. Cooney talked to the US attorney himself because he testified today when he asked for a meeting with the attorney, he was denied the opportunity to meet with Tim Shea the US Attorney. So you're right, it's hearsay, but if I'm the House, Judiciary Committee. I WanNa talk to JP Kuni next. Well I I was just GonNa say a serious hearing an an. Investigation would have done that instead of doing this today in a setting that you know basically became another political circus. With. Each side throwing spitballs at the other. My Laura. Well. Certainly the Republicans sort of take the cake on the spitball front, but not entirely not entirely the Brennan. Democratic clowns up there. But look I mean they could have subpoenaed Kuni. They could have sought. His testimony would have been a lot more powerful because Kuni could presumably have said. This is what Tim Shea. The appointed attorney told me right. I mean well investigations the pulled in stages. We know what the next stages. Maybe that's what they're planning to do now by the way on the whole Tim. Tim Shea Thing I. Think one of the dimensions of this episode that maybe he hasn't gotten enough. Attention is the fact that are engineered to push out the Senate confirmed. US Attorney Jesse Liu so that he could then install his longtime aide Tim Shea now I don't know that those that, and then what happened with the sentencing or connected, but it sure seems fishy. Does seem a little fishy to me. It's not it's not too hard to connect those dots. And then and then you add to the fact that he has. A like. Friday night effort to fire the US attorney in the southern district. Does seem to be a pattern of behavior here that that's pretty questionable so i. don't know I just think that hasn't gotten quite as much attention as it probably should.

"We now have with us. Matt Miller former chief of public affairs at the Justice Department a Matte. Welcome back to skulduggery. Thanks as always for happening, so were you as surprised as I was Bhai? The Court of Appeals Ruling Ordering Judge Sullivan to accept the Justice Department's decision to drop the case against Michael. Flynn yeah I was just based on the oral argument. When the panel hurt the case, it looked like look. Naomi Rayo I am not surprised at all by her opinion. She's the trump appointed judge. Who wrote the opinion? Opinion today, but Judge Henderson. who was the swing vote I. I did think based on what she'd said. It argument that she was at least got a lead judge Sullivan have a hearing and rule before it out of his hands, and that's not what you decide to do today. Explain as a former justice. Department official why the Justice Department at the end of the day which makes prosecution decisions shouldn't have the authority to make this decision now. I think they should in almost every circumstance. That's that's what the council. or I should say the former judge who was appointed by judge, Sullivan to come in and represent kind of the case for why Flint should be sentenced what he says look at the Department of Justice should always make that call executive branches job, except in very rare circumstances where the Justice Department is doing something so transparently corrupt, and then in that case, the judge is is implicating. Implicating himself in the departments, corruption by going along with I think the important thing is that no one's argue that the DOJ should be able to decide on its own wind to bring a case, but if if the department has already made that decision already brought the case, already gotten a plea agreement that the defended signed off on stood up in court, said he accepted, and we're. We're moving to the part of the case that is in the judiciary's hands, which sentencing that at that point for if DOJ comes back and does a complete one eighty, if it's for legitimate reason fine, if it's for an illegitimate reason, the court has some role in probing that and find and determining whether to accept the the justice. Department's new recommendation are not yeah I mean there are. Are So many sort of unique aspects to this case, I think people at the FBI, APP said there was no playbook for how to deal with the situation where an incoming national security adviser is having conversations with the Russian ambassador, urging him basically to forget about what the president at the time has done. Do not respond suggesting wait a few weeks will be in power we will. Have a different course of action, and then of course you get the vice president of the United States lying on national television, saying such a conversation never took place. It does strike me as there was no playbook for what you do in a situation like this. Yeah, that's the argument DOJ makes now is basically that the FBI was too aggressive, and that is the fundamental problem I think with the argument bar is trying to make is that it's an argument that only applies to one person. Mike Flynn. They make they make this really I think ridiculous argument in the in the the filing. They made to dismiss the case that because at one. One point. The B. thought that the investigation should be closed when they then got new evidence and decided to go interview him. The product was gone that they had no justification for interviewing him, and so the lies that he told we're not. Material is an argument that would not that I. Guarantee You the Justice. Department is GONNA fight when other defendants raise it in every other case around the country from here on out, it's an argument that has applied in one case and one case only in that anyone can find. That's Mike Flynn, and I guarantee you DOJ will never support that sort of argument in future cases, and that's what makes it. It so obviously political. We'll yeah, and we'll. We'll get into this when we talk about the Roger Stone, sentencing as well because it's the same idea, the kind of double standard, which suggests political motivation, but just as a matter of principle because I think this is what judge Ray said in her decision that the executive branch every branch actually has to have an opportunity to I think her word was self-correct. If they make a judgement that that something was not done the right way, and you don't dispute that, do you? You're just saying that. In this case, there's a kind of prime facie case of corruption, and so you have to make an. An exception, absolutely, of course, the executive branch should be able to self correct had in fact, the Justice Department has self corrected in front of this Judge Judge Sullivan. I think quite famously is the judge who heard the corruption case for Ted Stevens and win. The department found evidence of prosecutorial misconduct. They came to him to dismissed the case after the guilty verdict has been rendered at trump and the judge did dismiss the case and I think one. Could you know it's interesting that the Justice Department, actually in this very strained motion to dismiss the case, actually never claimed prosecutorial misconduct. They argue all of these reasons why it ought to be. Claimed the thing that would actually you know, maybe get you over the line. That's claimed prosecutorial. This I think it's because they actually couldn't back up. Where does this go from here? Is this case? Is this dead? Now or I know there's at least the possibility that Judge Sullivan or that? The Full Court of Appeals could review this. Do you think that's likely if it did if it does happen? How do you think that plays out? So it is a great question there there are two ways in which the full court appeals could hear one. Any judge on that court could ask for the court to take it up and they they a full the full. Court could decide to do that and the second is judge. Sullivan could ask for the full circuit court to take I don't know I I'm really not sure. I mean judge sold maybe a annoyed by this He may just decide to let it go and move on. This thing has been dragging on a long time. I think it's hard to say i. do think if the full circuit does. Does review it. It's likely to be reversed. I mean these were the two justices who have been the most trump friendly on the DC circuit. You look at some of the other cases that come to that circuit to release his tax returns and issues involving congressional subpoenas. These judges are I. Think it's inaugural.

So it is a great question there there are two ways in which the full court appeals could hear one. Any judge on that court could ask for the court to take it up and they they a full the full. Court could decide to do that and the second is judge. Sullivan could ask for the full circuit court to take I don't know I I'm really not sure. I mean judge sold maybe a annoyed by this He may just decide to let it go and move on. This thing has been dragging on a long time. I think it's hard to say i. do think if the full circuit does. Does review it. It's likely to be reversed..

"flam" Discussed on The Rubin Report

"We all WanNa talk show in Sweden where he was addressing this very topic and B basically said well you know science Supports that this is the way it happens in a free country where people can shoes and we had like one of the level politicians there and she was well. I don't agree with that. And you know I was just I actually made a you know an episode on my show about that because this mine just said scientists this. I don't agree with it. Okay so what what Aubrey. Now we are. Yeah but but so that thing though the politicians says I don't agree with it I don't agree with what science says. I don't agree with what biology says has more know that men and women are different. It doesn't make either sex better than the other. Just it's just an is but when you hear that response you think most people just swallow that and take it. I think most people people do that. Because we're fiercely terry very conformist people so they have been trained for very long to just accept that form of communication. Now we have a government body the Ministry of equality and I mean just the name sounds like so totalitarian I can't it's eighty-four word totally. They have the authority to look at like all companies and other governmental bodies to schools the universities everything everything has to be gender mainstream. And it's all run by women. The women working out the so right so when you do this then as private businessmen how. How does that affect you? You know funny thing is like bone. My Youtube Channel started taking off my business partner. He was like okay. Hey what's happening. What's going on? This might actually hurt our business interests and I said well you know if we start seeing some some. You know disasters happening because what I'm saying online we'll have a conversation okay so we tried it for a while. Turns out. Business is booming because now people are finding being me just because they see my video. I WanNa work with your company so even though we have all these enemies now though some people wouldn't want to work with anyway. But what about on the hiring side though I mean and when you're actually hiring people you have to look at that those immutable characteristics to figure out who you're going to hire. Well I don't handle the recruiting anymore. Personally so I I've kind of removed myself my face from that a bit. I don't think it's much of a problem because Sweden as a general problem when it comes to recruiting talented people. We don't have enough half of them. We have a lot of people that are going on subsidies and various government programs loads but I mean. It recruiting you know very smart it professionals. That's generally generally a very difficult. Although I find I have quite a few of them. You know these software guys. That are quite libertarian. So uh no. I don't see it as a great problem you know. Here's another thing I'd like to mention. You're not allowed to ask people anything you want. When you hire hire them in Sweden so when I first started out with my company I would ask people to are? Are you in any unions. Don't want any unionized people in my companies and then my hr convention you gotTa Stop Saying that Henrik. It's illegal. You cannot ask them if they're unionized. So now we we have a tax when we recruit which is kind of like Collectively minded person. This might not be the place for you. Yeah I mean this is happening everywhere now is another. I think it does hurt kids because if you raise an entire generations of girls telling them that they are beautiful and we can strong at the same time and can do no wrong. While you're turning them into sexist fascists basically and you're telling all the boys that they are inherently evil nuts and we've been doing this for a long time now so is that the part that's particularly Louis perverse about this so you take a society you make them equal then at the same time because you know that humans are GonNa have individual emotions. You keep you keep telling the males that they're evil evil. Despite the fact that you in Sweden have done more for equality than virtually anybody. So it's it's really it's just never enough because actually as you guys know what they what what they want. It's not really equality. It's no and I. I've been trying to tell them that this would be as if someone came out as gay and you told them no suppress that right. Because that's what you're telling the boys like. Oh you feel the need to run around and play football. Suppress it telling the girls like you're playing with dolls. Bad girl go out and play football now before the haters get in here and say oh. Our and Flam doesn't want boys to play with barbies. You actually you're perfectly okay. I never played football. I I was not the type you huge Barbie collection which is a bit much. I was into hedonism hidden star wars figurines or FI action. Yes you call them that to make me sound more manly. But they're basically Dole's I'll show you Mike Lynch it when right here all right. Let's shift a little bit because you mentioned actually that you lived in. I believe you're moving. Yes if I can say that Malveaux now we hear a lot about on a certain side of the Internet Where they report on a lot of bombings and stabbings and all these weird things coming out of Alamo? Now we only hear of this sort of right but I would say you're not just sent to ripen more right leaning outlets in America and then anyone that reports on says that they're racist in their bigoted and the rest of it. You live in mellow what what happened in just a little bit about the history of Mamo before anything Mamo. It's in the deep south of Sweden. So it's a port city. This is where basically everyone. That's coming to Sweden by foot or by car. Aren't they will enter across a bridge and they come into Mamo so we have a very large number of refugees and so forth from the crisis of two thousand fifteen and Mama is always been rather poor. City used these big ships there and in the one thousand nine hundred that collapsed than everyone was an alcoholic for a while. Then it kind kind of be came slightly better. But it's it's loss-making city and it's been run by Socialists for the better part of the last hundred years now over time. Crime in Momma started to rise uncontrollably and again coming back to the same topic all all the time you know this concept of being quiet about what is happening because it's considered rude to mention the fact that will we might. Have you know a drug war going going on in this city. And that's what we have right now. So people are working very hard at putting out. Different kind of representations statistical representations saying everything is is fine. But you know. It's getting harder and harder for them to do that. Because everyone knows that we did not use to have like weekly bomb bombs going off in the city the Center for one thing and if I can I'd like to tie this back to a personal experience. You mentioned that time that I was burglarized and what's really interesting about. That story is not so much the fact the roast burglarize but rather the reaction. I got from the media when I wrote about this from the police when you ask them. And what can I do about this. I'll just make it Freda. Shore you know guys.

The 9 Worst Cruise Packing Mistakes

"Are the nine Worst Paki mistakes that cruises can and do make that could also get them into a lot of trouble? I'm Gary Benbridge image. This is another of my tips for travelers. I'm an explorer. Nine packing mistakes. That could end up getting you into a lot of trouble starting with this. This one drugs bringing drugs could get you into trouble. Now there's the obvious ones which are illegal drugs and people have been caught on. Cruise ships surprised pricing often. It's awfully even in the last year. There were a couple age. Seventy one in seventy two called Roger and sue clock some pensioners from the UK that were arrested in Lisbon carrying many kilograms. Twenty pounds of cocaine. They got up to eight years also the same year. There were two men arrested trying to bring drugs on board the allure of the seas in Miami and other famous case where Gruber calls who are known as the instagram crews drug Babes where arrested in Sydney trying to you smell drugs on Princess cruises so obviously of course bring on board illegal drugs is a big issue however you also need to be extremely careful with prescription genre even over the counter drugs because in some places you cruising to humanity find that they're also illegal so for example in cruising to Dubai the United Arab Emirates. It's there's a lot of drugs which can get very simply are illegal so any drugs for example with Codeine so even very simple drugs like tylenol. Arthritis Relief Leaf is illegal in that country and get you in trouble. Gentlemen was arrested and held in prison for many months for trying to bring Tamaz Japan into the United Arab Emirates in Japan again. There's lots of restrictions as well so even sudafed for example you haven't issuing Indians Japan so very important if you're gonNA cruise and you have either. OTC drugs your drugs. You just pulled over the counter check that you can actually bring those into the country particularly disembarking and if you have a prescription drug that you take with you. My big strong tip is keep it in the original packaging so they can see your name. And ideally also have a copy of your prescription or or letter from your doctor but be careful those very simple drugs that you bring on board could get you into a lot of trouble the secondary that could get you into trouble if you packed them all remote control devices or things that can be launched authorship so very simple balloons are no longer allowed most cruise lines. You can't bring balloons onboard because the concern and that you'll release those balloons authorship and it will endanger marine life if you want to bring a drone on a cruise you pretty much excluded by all cruise lines. I've tried many times to get drones is on board very few Cruz. Actually even let you bring them on board some cruise lines will let you hand them over to security and they will let you when you get on and off the ship but pretty much. Every single cruise ship will ban drones ban also things like remote controlled aircraft at the time of according war. Caribbean and Carnival are the only the ones that will let you bring drones on board normally. Keep them with security and they will let you use them when you head off on a port. I've tried many times with cruise lines to bring my journal on board and even with lots of guarantees working even with the PR teams. It is refused what will happen. is you'll find is confiscated and you want to get it back back at the end of the cruise the third area that could cause problems for you is not packing for the dress code depending on the cruise you go on. They will have different restriction. So if you're heading for example on a very formal cruise so you could be on Cunard or it could be princess how America. They have formal nights where they're required for example. Gentlemen to to wear jackets normally with a tie or Tuxedo. That require ladies very elegant gowns. So you can't get into any of the key dining venues without that dress code also some cruise lines are also not let you go into the public areas. They won't even let you watch the show or go to the casino. Whatever if you're not in the dress codes are really important to make sure that you've you've packed for the dress code of course the converse if you're getting a nice relaxed cruise you don't want to be bringing all your fancy gear because you may get a chance to wear it? Also very importantly understand if there's any other restrictions so for example one or two cruise lines have banned fancy dress. This is after the head of hollered problems with probably not inappropriate. Fancy onto dress so some cruise lines are really strict around fancy dress and clothing basically with slogans. They will only let you bring on fancy dress. Relevant to a particular theme and those themes tend to be inaugurals like White Knight Party or Red White and blue so also bear mind. You might not be able to bring that fancy dress also depending where you're going don't pack camouflage gear get some islands. Even in the Caribbean will not let you wear camouflage gear out and about so really important. Understand the dress code. Also if you or your kids have have things like those shoes of the wheels on most cruise lines. Also don't allow those so when you're packing. Also have I think around the dress code and also check. If you're particularly cruise line has is any quirks Robert jacomb worse. For example some cruise lines will let you wear jeans a dark smart jeans a faded or ripped jeans so that's something really important to bear in mind. The dress code another really big packing mistake that I have seen a lot of people make is packing valuables and things that they really don't want to lose in their check in bags. Make sure that you keep all of those in your carry on bags. I've had people contact me talking about. They've had really valuable equipment in the checking comebacks which is gone missing or been damaged and then they've had no recourse for those so many important things. I could passports medications if you've got camera equipment laptops smartphones. Anything that is valuable even your precious jewels if you're taking those somebody's on a cruise with you so really important if you have anything anything valuable whether it's even sentimental value keep that with you in your carry on bags. Do not put it in the bags that you had in another important. No no when it comes to packing. He's turned pack anything. That has an open flame or is flammable. So you can't bring fireworks or anything like that but also you can't bring candles you. You comprehend incense burners so anything with live. Flames are not allowed on a cruise ship. Fire is the thing that cruises and captains and crew fear more more than anything else. It is the most dangerous thing to happen at sea so all lifelines are banned for example. You might have seen in a restaurant. They have little fake AAC flames and things like that to avoid having live flames. The only time you'll ever see live flames is one of those cruises where they do some Flam Base Crepe Suzette doc whatever at your table and then they're really strictly controlled with a fire blanket and fire extinguishers and all that kind of stuff so so anything. That's even vaguely flammable. Do not pack in your bags. Next is also a little bit linked to that. You can't bring on pretty much any crews anything anything that has some sort of heating element to it so you find whilst most cruise lines we'll let you bring on board hairdryers not all of them. Some of the might even let you bring on curling tongs but or them. But you can't bring on. Things like ions travel irons. Kettles coffee makers hot plates anything bizarre like that. And he's got a heating element. You cannot bring that on board also very important if you are traveling with kids very young kids and you need a bottle sterilizer or about a warmer check of your cruise line. Let you bring that. So for example Zomba's Disney does not allow parents to bring on sterilize bottles. They require you to either work with your cabin steward or you. You can talk to guest relations and they will give you some equipment. But you can't bring your own on board so anything that's got a heating element doping on board. Because they will check for that they will scream for that and they will will confiscate it. Also if you're heading off on a celebrate recruits Christmas or something like that you can't even bring those light strings of Christmas slides and things like that. They will not let you bring on board. The next packing mistake is around packing anything that is or could be perceived as has being some kind of weapon or could be used as weapons. This is very important because all though there's the obvious things you can't bring shotguns and pistols that that kind of stuff will big long knives knives with you. There's a bunch of things that you might end up bring on board. That could get into trouble without realizing it so for example comping on board replicas so if your kids have converted could guns or whatever you probably find those are not allowed you combine those on board. There's also loss of restrictions on self defense equipment so if you perhaps want to bring some handcuffs with you for whatever reason or pepper spray those kind of things. You can't bring those either with you but surprisingly you also can't bring sing along things that are actually sports equipment. That could be used as weapons so you can't bring things like cricket bats baseball bats anything that looks like a club. Basically really you'll find that cruise lines will not let you bring on board. If they find that in your luggage they will take it out and they will confiscate it and give it to you at the end of the cruise if it comes comes to things like knives and sharp objects most of the rules that you can't bring any knife that is longer than four inches long or at. That's around about ten centimeters. The only only exception to that are there's old-fashioned safety razors but again if you're bringing on board you might find. You have some difficulties so anything that's perceived as or could be a weapon is restricted and would be a big mistake to pack. Another big. Packing mistake is bringing too much alcohol with you now. I have done a video before. We're talk about the great lengths. That people the go-to to smuggle booze on board most cruise lines will allow you to bring either one or sometimes two bottles of wine or champagne on board with you per person within your luggage. Anything over that they will clamp down on and they will take it away so if you're out on an excursion and you're going to winery or orders buying some alcohol spirits wine champion. Whatever it is when you come back on board the cruise line will take that away from you? And they'll hold it till the end of the cruise so so very important. When you're packing? You need to be really careful. About how much booze you bring on board some cruise lines. Even restrict things like water sewed code. Is that kind of stuff so make sure you really understand what you are allowed to pack. So you don't get into trouble. My next tip is around the whole area of musical equipment and instruments pretty much every single cruise line will allow you to bring on board musical instrument and you are allowed to play that unless they get complaints so you can bring on board musical instruments and you can play those in your cabin. Don't play them out on deck I've been on crispy with it and it's really annoying And is Sydney. Why is going to irritate eight other passengers when it comes to things like things playing music you'll find that pretty much every cruise line will not let you pack and bring big boom inboxes? They will let you bring on board smaller musical devices which they ask that you only play within your cabin. You can listen to music music out on deck with if phones you complex out loud you are. Ernest has played with new cabinet again. If you get complaints from your neighbors it will be taken away from you. I've done a video before about music. Music being played on balconies music player balconies is not something that cruise lines will encourage or in fact. If you get complaints you will find your equipment to taken away from you when packing for crews really important. That your Voi- these mistakes are you. Don't get yourself into a pickle and into trouble. These are the nine mistakes that I have seen. People make all all the time and they some of them are quite easy to make.

So it's gotta be cleaning the blood off and then we squeeze out what is intense product replacement. The amount of oil is an oil. You can't cheat an oil spill because that's fucked up if they put them clean that damn oil so are they like. Oh there's an oil spill come on guys there's a commercial it'd be filled. We gotta get out there and then found some ducks like what are not no I don. I'm putting some shit on them ducks. And when it's looking at somebody whistle blow down.

That's excuse I'm sorry better at yellow ducks. Anyone AH racist. And what a black ducks. They're like. Well we can't see the oil cleaned off of them. Oh yeah okay. So for important important demonstrations reporters and investigators etc.. They would take the tiny thing. What's it like a tiny blood sample but I'm much more? Enjoy coming up a tiny thing and and they would put it in the machine and then Elizabeth would continue the tour to another room so they would never show the full process of the tiny thing. Oh would you like to see the tiny thing. This is the tiny thing now. We put it into this shaky covered smoking vichy. Sometimes for Demos I mean someone she ahead to be like. WanNa give us your blood so I hope as a reporter is blood. Everyone's got syphilis. Apparently Oh God so scientists would run and grab in would run in and grab blood samples. Yes this is true. Yes yes yes. That's potential investors had put in Edison and then run the tests themselves in the lab and then rush back the results so basically they would put it in Edison then they would go to a real laboratory quick get real results and then come back and go to the Edison and look at this green like Ooh all right. We have your resume awesome. This is like some like wizard of Oz level shit whereas like. Oh yeah sure. Sure sure but hold on. I just got to run. There's a beloved back to the real lab so we can pretend this tiny thing works. I love it also. How much time do you have on that tour? Are they stalling. Galling is it like Damn sunsilk stuck in traffic they gotta get back with the tiny thing results voice go. They'll like Elizabeth. Please take me to the Edison tired. I'm tired of this Elisabet. Take lunch once you come over here and look at my array of black turtlenecks. Would you like one. You need security can look at your bic. Probably that was it. They're they're they're they're like we have pictures of everyone's stick. That's how I get over. You write a good story about us. So Oh fun. Facts here homes attitude toward secrecy and running. The company was borrowed from Silicon Valley hero of her former Apple. See Steve Jobs which I think Steve Jobs Dobbs was a scammer but he just lucked up that like his scam was actually pretty viable because think about it. He's not reinventing the wheel. There were cell phones before the iphone. So we know in a cell phone works. We know that you can program machinery to intake calls take calls do text messages so basically all the self. The IPHONE is the bad bitch of phones. It's like how. How can we make this phone sexy? How can make this phone like so hot? You WanNa fuck it. And that's what he did not like. He's doing like insane technology. That androids don't have or anything like that so so the secrecy and it's also the elitism that kept US hooked on the team of Apple. So are they knew that. We're a bunch of scumbags in this country and play on it. So Oh home. Started dressing in black turtlenecks like Steve Jobs and decorated office with his favorite furniture and like jobs. She never took vacations now mindue. She's never actually working on because nothing Israel every day. So you're faking vacation. I mean really that little. The Edison machine was basically just like that's like legos. Just playing with blocks and somehow they made it like I don't know steam. Yeah Yeah it's amazing. So homes has a very deep voice that many people think is faked in order to require to acquire dominance and we talked about that There is a little clip of her slightly. Losing her voice. Yes yes I want to see the scam fall apart. We're GONNA pull up that clip right. Now is a very intense one because it's so dumb so we'll we'll show a second like a little bit of her fake losing her voice which I'm so inspired by like how do you keep that voice up all the time. It's very method. Homes hired bodyguards bodyguards to drive her around and a black audience Dan. Her nickname was eagle. One like she's like God Damn President of the United States that is fantastic. uh-huh and her office had bulletproof glass. Because you know the first person that's getting shot is a rich white woman in a black turtleneck and silicon valley so she I told people is foolproof class. anyways shoot a gun at it to see. Yeah that's what I want to know although you know what kind of to that no better demo than Henny someone are GonNa be like. Try it that's try shooting free right now. Honestly that's pretty hot like if you gave me a gun that was like shoot this glass a- all of its bulletproof New Jersey does should every day. I've taught multiple caps in this podcast studio. Where's the bullets bounce back when his bulletproof glass Kinda Kinda just like shadows a little bit right? I've I've no idea. Yeah probably just do it falls on the ground. Don't bounce back then I get pop guns guns in Ear Wolf. You're here. Wolf Open Kerry Geico fifteen hand here with some antique bullshit. He He'd be it here. Order the trumpet like he'd be like cleaning it all the time and like pumping in every now and then Paul F Tompkins shoots his gun. Because it takes the are- hours as you could choose this as fast as you could shoot powder all the time. Just little Satchel a good powder router for PFC so cute to be styled impeccably Scotto commend. Just got a bunch of knives. Okay go ahead. We define diagnosis. CIGNA's today as the determination. Wow she really would like now. I haven't girl actually so she's is a little bit I she's like less good. I mean like like interest basically held onto that Baltimore accent the whole time during during the wire because I think that his body and everyone's ears like that have you heard Elba's real British accent. British accent is fancy. Okay but there are some really ratchet US exits. His accent is like he doesn't Talk Marshall He's I might style twelve twelve. We get my view you. I think he was so fine.

"Went to Fox. Yeah when they explain yeah. They didn't say he wasn't. They literally said job. They just do the math. But if this person got all the bones loans won the election could be anyone anyway so let's not let's not jump to conclusions. Okay no I just I just like it's. It's all a scam in that. Like I think like people like I said most of the New York Times because they're like all we've got a liberal by having the fucking world's worst racists on our like our fucked up headline yeah article I'm just like conservative. Now right right or the or the articles will still be liberal. 'cause you know writers don't get to necessarily choose the title article so the article title would be like black. I people have. We had enough article about a change is racist racist. Ask Headline Writers We. Let's listen to a little bit of Elizabeth's voice because I'm just so curious done it. We've already done it absolutely and it's actually even published published in our FDA decision summary from this summer from nine hundred patient. Study where we got some. She figures out the scam of like one out. Talk a man to white man specifically to. I'll wear these turtlenecks where the same thing every day. That kind of ostentatious minimalism is as a flashy thing in itself. And then also she's like I'll make a product that is tiny tiny is thing in silicone valley like I'm tired. I'm so hard for that tiny thing yes just like a gross blood chip so nasty of you about just like off awesome tiny yeah and so therefore less gross than like vial of blood and it's just like a little chip it's like It's like a bucket that's true true. Yeah Yeah Yeah. So she starts this project with Shit so basically she had intense competitive streak at a young age. She often played monopoly with her younger brother. and her cousins insistent playing until the end and collecting all the houses and hotels till she won and if she was losing she often storm off. Now here's the crazy thing. I've never played monopoly tilly. And there's always a fistfight so the fact that she could get anybody to the end of this. I literally have a scarf. My cousin Giannakou attack during monopoly. Feels like this means. Her younger siblings got scammed into playing monopoly. I don't think they wanted. No one wants to play monopoly especially you start losing. There's nothing fun about playing monopoly. wynyard losing at least in other games you can be like. Oh I'm gaining traction in monopoly once you start on economic decline it just gets worse and worse and worse until you're literally like look I know I let it all your property but I will suck you'll attack greenhouse monopoly. Green Halley needs we odyssey monopoly. Just needs like four chance cards in there that just say a you robbed the richest player like whatever you want from them. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. There has to be way that if you're or it's like if you're the ooh poorest player you just took half of the richest players you just need the possibility that that could you could catch a lick and beat everyone which is a real big in real life if you can be very poor and then rob somebody and then that'd be poor anymore you know always a monopoly does not consider that which makes it inherently false fucked so It was during high school that homes would develop her work ethic. She quickly became a straight a student. She started her own business and she sold software aware that translates computer co two Chinese schools home started making taking mandarin lessons as a part of so I think knowing mandarin is a really big thing and scamming or this out there why people are every white person that thinks they speak. Mandarin is being scammed by Chinese. People does your. Your Mandarin is pick your garbage. It is like it's fine but look so I grew up in the states but I you know my parents spoken Chinese in the House and my grandparents Chinese and whatnot. So Oh I know that my accent is like borderline like a five year olds. Like I'm like barely literate blah blah blah. All these white people come out like taking like a couple years of Collagen there so fucking confident and I'm like listen to their accent and I'm like not even close. Not even close doesn't matter in Mandarin but if you say something the the tired now all the homophones like all the little like accents are fully different words and so it is just one of those things where I'm like. Why why people are so confident and that means that they're Chinese language? Teachers are telling them like good. It's never good. Start Teaching Chinese to white people. No a seriously like just fucking do it on Google translate between each glass. They're like I don't know. Our teachers was a lot of time on the computer. But see the way they. It's like like almost by definition. Because it's like you know about the way your brain here's language and stuff like they will. You cannot like once you're older than like eight or something like that. It's so so so so hard to learn to hear different accents. Yo that's why people when they learned a second language the next then no matter what like kind of forever even eight people people who've Kinda lose it but like there's always something there speak makes Mexican. I speak Spanish with a Mexican accent from Mexican people. Yeah very close to Mexico when you were a kid. Yeah when I was a kid but so now the accident is like that perfect people who are from Spain people who are from Cuba wherever in Mexico. Yeah that's where I learned anyway. If you're remote start teaching quote Mandarin on this along this is a bad guy. I feel like I feel like me as a black hole in teaching. Probably be like damn you really knows man. Yeah yea you honestly just need like two Chinese people to get in on it with you and just not respond to everything you say yes and then you got it. I'm doing this. You truly sign up for my Mandarin class. If you don't WanNa be like area grand again. Barbecue Tattoo are your hand me to sign up for.

"It's a van Nuys police station number and I was confused. I live in the valley in California so I picked up just in case there. Was something urgent urgent and my neighborhood. There were two guys told me that they were police officers. Someone reported an abandoned vehicle in Texas and the car was rented under my name and identity. They found all kinds of Jerusalem dogs in the car also that they found bank accounts under my name and have been sending money to Mexico and other countries. Then I got suspicious. I I my credit card with a three credit bureaus and I called them to lift my credit so that no one could open a bank account or any loans under my name's I said. Can I verify your identity. If you're a real officer I'd like you to physically find me and show me documents to prove to me your identity so so this is like a smart version. Eight is a little bit but I was the frozen credit cards before. She even like who he was. I think it's because that is such an easily callable bluff of like find me and like the right scammers are going to be like I'm going to find you and then you get found by the scammer and then it's a whole you know what I mean like invite people are too scared the legitimate. Yeah that just feels like if you told her to a real cop desa. How do this also cops lazy as Shit? This feels like a lot of effort more effort right. I'd be arrested black people. They shoot the cops work in this. I don't I don't I don't think a real cop would be like right away and like drive drive to your location coming it. Just throw it out there but it gets a little weird to me on the phone pretending to the COP says well. Why do you want me to find you you you want you want to see my cop? Okay this is the White Guy Cock. Oh Yeah Yeah. Yeah and then the person's I thought he misheard me. Sorry I repeated that I wanted to verify his identity. He goes on to say. Why do you want to know the color of my cock? That's what I was sure that they were scammers so he had to tell you. Do you want to see my Dick. Also he told you that Joe car isn't your written. None of this sounded right. Sounds Gases ask you can get your identity stolen but come on and she also had already frozen her bank accounts. Yeah what else. Can they do what I'm so confused. So the two comments mints are my friend Duck Scams exactly the same way. He lost two thousand dollars because he was panicking. Didn't have time to think about the red flags they get you in a moment of panic it because they want you to react. I think later they asked him to get all these gift cards and had him sent numbers. Hell yes I was wondering where how the actual actual shit. So here's my thing you have already been involved some crime even think that's how they get at you with the the the wide net and it's just like Oh. This is the police however I guess it's just a panic thing but if a cop is like yo I need eighty five five dollars at best. Buy To get you out of this trouble than just shit is fucking bonkers very specific that you're in a panic but what about when you're at lineup. Uh spot when you're in line of buzz by got the music. Playing AMAC leg Dune gift cards gift. Cards sweat sweating profusely mission of giving my driver's license and social security or credit cards to that other person Don's on you in that moment when you're waiting in line that maybe off here I guess and when someone else that this happened to me also someone was impersonating me. FBI and I asked them their batch number so that they they immediately hung up on me unless laws change. which doubt would happen? This is going to continue happen. They'RE GONNA prey on vulnerable people so I do wonder how they're getting the number because like I think they just Do that auto dialer Shit. So they're number says that they're from the van Nuys Police Department. I mean isn't that that's just like you can fake it. You can fake where your incoming and calls from I think because I know this system heritage Shit Social Security had that issue for a while that people were calling from the social security number telling people that they need certify their social security so smart which was a hard one to do. Because it's like okay you tell people to hang up and call the real social security number. which is the same number back so yea because you're calling the direct number? They're just like so they. must you know what the other thing though is like. Just if you think about that pitch for something like what is social security do honestly one of the big parts of their job is just keep that long list of numbers and for them to be like Solicit we might have forgotten your social security. You tell us what you think. Your social security number is We'll just double check. We'll go look in the big pilot numbers and see if your name give a sex to it. Like what the fuck are they talking about. Trump's security number to get expired. Listen along along the way where the take me. Where would they deport me too? Narrow continent of Africa. She's Brown the browns. I don't know my God the reverse of slavery would just get on a boat and they're just like just wherever they dock it. Oh My god Liberia that you know what it he's like like in the white supremacist. Fever dream that is trump's head like die probably is how he imagined. We don't WANNA be without us. They love Abbas they love. Our food dances. They love our lips in our hair. They don't WanNa leave us alone. They love us there with us what they do want they want they want to see. That's the thing the Nice racist these days are like we just want like Jim Crow like we don't need slavery slavery Jim Crow like high. Hi It raises a lot of it. Look one is is like you free for yeah but I automatically have a better job Anna better life than you no matter if you're talented smart or capable read your eighty percent for the way you're gonna get to walk around. Yeah it can't go everywhere let you can go outside sometimes too too much to ask trump twenty twenty sports but not as much money as you're making okay. You could still play sports but somehow a white guy's GonNa make more money off the wall. This everyone else is that okay. You know what let's take.

"Mustaches to start conversations about healthy lifestyles, regular, doctor visits and more. Okay. I just looked at the picture of the green giant with the mustache. He looks like rip Taylor. I looked at that. Now, it's like, oh that's rip Taylor back. Green glitter and having a throw in. That would be. I thought the peanut guy always did have a moustache so to and then I googled, I didn't see a mustache then fits him. His monocle. It's perfect. Green giant was here at hungry land. Moustache it was October. Oh, Oh, so so should should have have waited. waited. I just have to make a plea mic. Please do not grow a moustache shave your beard could I keep the beard but make the mustache thicker. So it's like, no, no, no, no. But should I call it November for you? Let me know mustache grow both. But I'll shave the beard and mustache now. And then grow. No, okay. All right. Let's jump in. Hi, my name is excited. Brooklyn, New York, I'm calling because I just read the Email about the green giant Palo flam pizza. My question is how do you store the leftover pizza? If you only eat one quarter of the put it in freezer refrigerator wrap it in aluminum foil, put an airtight container. Help me plead. I'm really trying not to eat the whole thing has a great day. Bye. Oh, I first of all I love that. She says her name is excited. Elaine was that her given was that her name. Excited name excited. She's very cute. That's actually a good question. I also think that it's not realistic. Elaine, don't feel bad. If you eat more than a quarter of the pizza. I know that we gave stats for a quarter of the pizza. But I would say it's fine. Even if we'd have the pizza, and it's really low in calories. However, if you do have leftover pizza, which is a good thing. And you want to save it for later time. The thing that I always do I just wrap it in foil. So I will wrap them individually in foil and leave them in the fridge because I know they're going to be eating within the next two days, or so, however, if you want to put them in the freezer, and you want to make them last for a month or two months, you can wrap them in foil, and then just put them in a big ziplock bag, and when you're ready to eat them just whip it out of the freezer. Pop it in the toaster oven or the the the oven. Just heated up for about ten or twelve minutes at probably three fifty or so, but it's easy to store..

Molly and Ralph discuss the Bengals game

"Welcome to the buccaneers observer podcast. This is Ralph Phillips I'm Molly bay. Well. We got a quarterback controversy in Tampa. Just depress really is James has come on a big James supporter, but he messed up man all four those interceptions where his fault. Thanks. Oh, yeah. To throw balls and to balls turn right to the linebacker. That's a cutter said he overthrew a couple of them. Well, it's magic came in and brought us back. But man, you know, it's good for for all the James haters out there. This is though fuel on the fire. It's unfortunate. You you never want to see a player bench like that. Especially pulled in the middle of a game where they don't have any chance to redeem themselves. That's an abysmal performance. We'll cut it to the right thing. Oh, yeah. Definitely. Yeah. I think the whole team was frustrated. I noticed that it seemed like the whole game. They had no up very very flam. But they seemed frustrated you could see Evans flop in his arms around a lot of players on defense. Even Tom just kind of being exasperated frustrate. Well, and I could see that too with the defense, especially because you know, they've done a pretty good job in the last few games. Trying to put us in good positions. And then the offense gets on the field goes three and now and then they're back on the field. So I'd be a little frustrated that the offense isn't pulling their weight. I think. Yeah. And I saw when Winston gut benched JP went over and talked to him on the bench. And then I saw during the game. When Fitzpatrick was on the sideline he was over there. Joking with you know, a lot of different team member. See it just seems like he's got a better report with everybody. I don't know it could be. Be it could be. I mean think about when the team really started falling apart was when the week that James came back the Pittsburgh game. Yeah through they put Winston in. Right. And then the next week and Chicago the distinct the whole joint. I mean, you just wonder if his presence there's something to that. Will everybody's heard the rumors? Sean jacks and supposedly is asking for a trade. It seems apparent to me that him and Winston don't like each other. Or he doesn't like Winston been rumors going on about that. And you saw win Fitzpatrick got in there. It was just immediately just started throwing balls to Sean. And I saw a couple of balls like I've noticed every game since which has been in that the Sean doesn't even try to catch them doesn't. I mean, they'll be right in front of them. All he's got to do is put his hands out even try not even try. Yeah. There was one like that in this game. And it it seems like d Jack gets frustrated after those place. But man, you you're the receiver. Like, you got at least put your arms, right? You gotta try and he's not even trying. So who knows what's there? I mean that was depressing. That's where I woke up this morning. I get on Twitter and see all these stories about DJ axe Texas too, so depraved, and you're just like really, and you wonder if that's kind of a distraction too. Yeah. That's gonna beat a deflator in the locker room. What are they going to do? Are they going to keep Winston as the starter or put Fitzpatrick Beckham kinda went insane arenas press conference game because some serious thinking to do about that? And he's like I don't have to make a decision right now. So who we got next week? We go to Carolina. No. Yeah. And they're five and two. I don't know. Did they win today against the ravens to snot out of them? That's a tough team to be the defense. Yeah. Awesome. That's going to be fun. Yeah.

Sacha Baron Cohen leaves Bernie Sanders befuddled in premiere of 'Who Is America?'

"Hutler following these stories Russian President Vladimir Putin rejects allegations that Moscow had collected compromising materials, on US President Donald, Trump or his family the Russian leader. Dismissed these claims as sheer, nonsense he was responding to a question during a joint news conference. With Trump following their summit in Helsinki a federal judge temporarily halted deportations. Of families who've been recently reunited after they were separated by the Trump administration, the, American Civil Liberties. Union filed paperwork saying attorneys were concerned. About rumors of mass deportations following reunification of children ages. Five to seventeen with their parents judge Dana Sabra said today he, ordered, a, temporary, halt, to any. Deportations for a week entertainment most Americans learned Sasha baron Cohen was when the movie borat was released others might know better as. The French Acer in Talladega nights, the comedian. As gifted as disguising his identity which has caused some controversy with a, new series, on Showtime called. Who is America and this scene. He poses as. An Israeli anti-terror expert who apparently fools gun rights activists and Republican politicians in taking part in a fake firearm instructional video for three year old I needed to find politicians who would fight for the second amendment. Of Todd lives to bear firearms at school writing on the show is Stevens I took, from the Washington Post, who joins us on the KOMO news. I see but thanks for, being with us today I guess the first question is what's the. Point what's the point of this show is it just to try to. Make other people look kind of silly Question and I think a lot? Of his critics say this is sort of ambush comedy at its worst Someone who does he say target a lot of. Republican politicians targeting Democrats others as well but there's, a certain sort of seen shaming that's happening here I would say that he doesn't have to be made. That this is a guy he wants to pose a playboy Of American leadership at American industries and the fact that you know he's doing it as. You say white by. Getting UPS as for three year old gun ownership to be led by some fairly August politicians I think they play This is on Showtime they already have kind of a niche audience, those who are willing to pay a premium for its content is this show maybe too big of a. Risk somebody like Showtime Well it's interesting it's certainly. I don't think they would get on a on a on a sort of prestige cable. Network we're talking about an FX AMC only. Would never, flam broadcast on cable, or streamer like an, Amazon I think it would be something that would be apply obviously. Does fly until the time I don't know how many it. Actually getting you know on the other side you have Joe. Walsh the conservative personality. From Illinois congressman who, has an the Showtime boycott so I don't. Know how this is going to net out it's going to bring some people in the network at NASA it's. Not a risk What. Are people out there Calling for a boycott I think. She'll be doesn't make it I'm sure he had a decent following coming into this with. The movie work he'd done and what kind of target audience do you think he has here in this? In this for the show Talk about Obama I g show which was on the floor Those those shows were good Ten twelve fifteen, years ago I think Laura If I'm not mistaken Kim on thousand six, so I think he does on the following but. He's been a little, bit off the radar he's done, acting noted, but hasn't done this kind of you know put on having makeup and impersonate. People to public officials in a long. Time and so The hope at. Least from the people I've talked to know, about this thing that he's going to bring in. A new fan base, while building on his own one, but it, needs to be a risk in Albuquerque because I think a lot of people. Don't know A lot of. Younger viewers has again this sort of bio. Following online I don't, know that they're, all so intimately familiar with all right Steven thanks. So much for. Being, with us you.
