"Simple. You need strong leaders. Say the right. Answer is america's going in where america's telling the taleban you stay out of couple wearing charge will set up the transportation routes. We'll get people at the airport. We lead you just need a president who believes that acts like that so when the next president who comes along understands with american leadership means the world will respect us.

Donald trump show was always you lead from a position of strength. And that way if you ever get into run in with somebody you've got the leverage you've got the power you've got the military i think there's a host of democrats who think the military is for not what it does is wrong on september two thousand one liberal group move on dot org led the effort to get us to responser judicial international means.

Ari Fleischer on Joe Biden's Worst Communication Blunders

"So whether the president's a democrat or republican is a good strategy to say. I'm not answering that question. To turn your back and walk away ari as former white house press secretary. I'm the only thing he could have done. Worse was going to maybe the july fourth holiday weekend and when he was asked about afghanistan. Say i only wanna take happy questions. I mean i guess when you compare what he did yesterday to what he did in july. This is only the second worst communications blunder. He's made and when it comes to body language not just what comes out of. Somebody's mouth but this video that is truly one of the most viral videos in the last twenty four hours of him apparently looking at his wristwatch as even his wife was holding her. Her heart hand on heart is the cost. It's coming off. The military transports dover air force base. This president let me ask you. Does the president come back from that image for people who are against him because he for him because he's not donald trump he can do no wrong but for most americans who actually wanna make fair valuation of who we have is the commander in chief. This is daunting and sebastian. This counts this resumes. This is deeply important to the american people. It's about better national honor to veteran military. It's about our promises around the world. This is not your typical shining object so to speak that politics is full of and i think americans are realizing now is we elected somebody just not up to the task

Jenna Lewis Calls on U.S. Cabinet to Invoke 25th Amendment, Remove Biden From Office

"Get your constitutional loyally take on the current situation. We have people saying the president of the united states the man who deems himself to be that has committed treason. The twenty fifth amendment should be deployed by the democrats as somebody who's been in swamp long enough now who's been fighting the swamp creatures. What he's jenner ellis's expectation given the last two weeks. I don't think the democrats are going to this guy until they find a better option. I don't think so either. I mean if the cabinet were operating sincerely and in good faith they would have already invoked twenty fifth amendment. And it's actually surprising to me that come on a harris hasn't an immediate. She's trying to do that behind the scenes. Because you need the vice president hand. The majority of the cabinet members so the twenty fifth amendment. I think does apply and of course the operational language is unable not unfit because remember. I made that distinction. Nancy pelosi was calling for twenty five against trump. because she's like oh he's unfit for office. Well that's a very subjective term. Unable literally means he cannot perform. Yeah or he's in very diminished health mental capacity. A like clearly. Joe biden is so the twenty-fifth amendment here rationally and constitutionally could apply. I think joe biden needs to resign. If there were any just just moral turpitude left in washington. He would absolutely resign in step down. But i also think that. There's a very good case to be made for impeachment on the basis of treason because treason remember is defined in english common law and within the context of treason. Bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors within the language of the constitution to mean of course including aiding and abetting or getting eight giving aid and comfort to anyone and to put eighty five billion dollars worth of military arsenal and to be excluding citizens from the united states of getting out from behind enemy lines. Everything that joe biden has done as the commander in chief. I think fall squarely within the definition of treason under that

"Jenner. That we've got to talk about what you're doing. Your travels the work that the the board is doing. But i you are such well. You took the ultimate act. You left the gop right. I day so you hate rhino. I do absolutely and you know. The republican party left conservatives and they left us and so my leaving them was all about saying listen. I'm going to go unaffiliated. That means i can still in my home state of colorado where i'm still registered to vote. I can vote in the primaries. That's fine but my purpose in doing that is saying. Listen especially for the national. Rmc leadership like ronna. Romney mcdaniel and justin rimer. We've talked about a lot about on the show. They need to step down. They need to get their priorities straight. They need to support america first and win. The republican party actually comes back to conservatives. I'm happy to rejoin.

October seven two thousand one less than a month after the al qaeda attacks on the world trade center and the pentagon within days of the us bombing of afghanistan. The taliban offered to hand over osama bin laden the al-qaeda leader but the bush administration rejected any negotiations with the taliban. This is bush's press secretary ari fleischer responding to a question and october. Two thousand one would use afford say was the taliban might say at this point may not make any difference in the or flooring whatever they may serve. The president made it any clearer two weeks ago when he said that there will be no discussions and negotiations. So what they say. It's not as important as what they do. And it's time for them to act. It's been time for them to act in december of two thousand one just a month or two later the taleban offered to surrender control of kandahar if its leader mullah.

"fleischer" Discussed on Around the World in 80s Movies

"Horror and holds book relates the real life murders that occurred in nineteen. Seventy four involed. Ronald butch defeo he and murdered his parents and his four siblings in their respective beds within the family home and his defense claim was that he was under demonic influence. That caused him to do these. Things as the book relates events. That were a matter of public record prior to the. Let's family experienced that. We came to know in the amityville horror film ways. They determined that. Need not worry about securing any kind of deal with the losses or anyone else in one thousand nine hundred one film producer dino dila renta's he also made it deal with film ways he wanted to do a sequel story. That would contain completely fictional characters who move into the amityville home. Dino commission british novelist and playwright. David ambrose descript this new story then entitled death in amityville dino's tentative choice for the director was the legend of hell house. Director john huff. He was going to take charge. Then he changed his mind to hungarian-born canadian director. George calendar with production start date at least at the time slot for september of nineteen eighty one but production paused the started working with film ways to produce their prequel concept that they were having a hard time getting off the ground. He was gonna do that one. I and that resulted in the one thousand nine hundred eighty two released. I talked about on the previous episode. Amityville to the possession after amityville. Two's release death in. Amityville was quickly announced as the third amityville film with a new release date of august. Nineteen eighty-three but it wasn't going to be called death in amityville because with the new wave of three d genre films filling the theaters in the prior two years dino wanted to ride this wave into his own three d movie and this would allow him to cleverly sidestep this sequel legalities of title while still keeping it a presumptive. Follow up in the mind of the public by calling it amityville. Three d amityville. Three d was fast tracked. Dna was hoping the ride the coattails not only of the three d. craze at the time but also of poltergeist that came out in nineteen eighty. Two this was a film. Dino really wanted to capitalize on. He thought that he had a similar property so he ordered revisions sill plate. You ristic of the pull. The guy's property. David ambrose the screenwriter death amityville. He opted to use a pseudonym for the subsequent script. Revisions william wales. Maybe it was commemorating the birth in one thousand nine hundred eighty two of william the son of the prince and princess of wales charles and diana the poltergeist elements that were introduced into death in amityville. Those included a psychic research. Team was a daughter that was going to need rescuing those nasty looking demon on the other side of this portal to contend with as a peachy rating. Very much like poltergeist. Even though the previous amityville films were r. rated entries this film would mentioned the defeo murders by name although many people who are watching. This don't know that this was not going to be sequel. Presuming his two sequel. We learned in amityville to that. The name of the family that was slaughtered by the eldest boy with a shotgun that was the mentalities in the film. It was changed from the details. The let's family. They're not even referred to at all in this fill except a blanket statement about crazy things that happened to the houses. Prior residents for legal reasons though the film does have the disclaimer. This picture is not a sequel on it script. Changes did delay the beginning of filming for several weeks. Release date eventually moved up from august of nineteen eighty three to four teeth. They were hoping to capitalize at that time on the horror movie interest. Naturally that comes about prior to halloween in the completed script for amityville. Three john baxter. He's recently divorced journalist. Who's working for this. Investigative magazine called. Reveal if you read the novelization or if you read any of the scripts that magazine is called witness but for some reason. Change to reveal for the movie. John baxter's lead. This assignment is to expose this sands scam. That's operating within that infamous abandoned amityville home on long island. New york afterward baxter finds at the house is immensely affordable. It has assorted history of terrible things happening to those who've been inside so we can get it for a song and baxter apparently need to find a new place because he just divorced his wife. This one has fourteen rooms covering three floors pay. Perfect for any newly divorced bachelor to take residence in he into the house. He certain all of these higher calamities where is they were delusions or just straight up hoaxes. The bottomless pit in the basement. Others claim that's a portal to hell. Well that's just an abandoned. Well it has plenty of space for himself as well as his teenage daughter when she comes to visit as well as solitude for writing the great american novel that he's been talking about doing for years others around him soon began to experience strange events and the employer john to leave but he won't. He's convinced the house's reputation is causing mass hysteria among all of his associates unfortunately with his daughter staying with him on occasion john is going to soon discover. That being wrong might just be dead wrong more to the story than that. Not a lot more but you get the drift of what this film is going to be about. I'm sure now. Dino de larent- is selected. Richard fleischer to direct amityville. Three d fleischer had worked with before for barabbas and nineteen sixty one. Mending go and nineteen seventy-five amityville three d. This would be the first of four consecutive films that fleischer directed for dino de la renta's conan the destroyer red sonja and million dollar mystery followed this. Those four that he did for dido they would be the final four films that he did in his career. Fleischer came in with experience. Directing three films already helmed. A movie called arena. They came out. In one thousand nine hundred eighty three back then to three d technology was a little different arena required to cameras to film it re also required to projectors to display in the theaters whereas the air flex technology of amityville. Three d only required one camera to film and one projector to show it. Fleischer harkened back to those days of nineteen fifties chillers. He was going to try here or more classical approach to his haunted house flick in its look and it sounded. It's feel really counter programming to the slasher movie vibe that dominated so much horror in the early nineteen eighties as dino wanted this to go very quickly from production screen. Many of the main actors were signed on without having to do any auditions at all woody allen film regular tony roberts. He got the lead role of john. B-actor some viewers today. You know if you're watching this humane roberts. Uncannily resembles the offspring of w bush. And maybe get smart don adams if they were doing an impression of humphrey bogart or something. Baxter is said to be very loosely. Based though even kaplan who is a parapsychologist who came out against george lutz. He claimed that his amityville horror story was complete fraud. The difference though is that kaplan actually believe in the supernatural whereas baxter in this film absolutely does not robert joy who plays elliot west. He's the head of the psychic research team brought in to investigate. He also skipped auditioning for the film. He had recently appeared in another production. Called ragtime joy took the job because well he needed the money but he also felt that the screenplay did have some clever twists and he looked forward to participating in the end though felt that a lot of that didn't really translate to the screen as he saw it with the results of amityville. Three d especially the last half themed. This really was a rip off of poltergeist. In many ways christine ebersol she was initially cast in the role of john. Baxter's nancy she had already been fitted for wardrobe. They make ups on her all of that in pre production but then during that time she was offered a more role she was going to play. Katharina cavalieri in amadeus now as amadeus was immediately about to shoot ever saw was faced with a very difficult decision because she was broke and amityville paid significantly more than what they were offering for amadeus ultimately she opted for amadeus because she thought it had many more artistic qualities and she believed in never doing anything. Strictly for the money ever saw was immediately replaced by tess. harper harper. Also took the money because she was broke. We're getting a common theme here with a lot of people that appear these guys movies. She needed to pay the rent pretty badly. Now harper had already shot ten mercies which would become a breakthrough performance. But not yet because it hadn't paid her more than scale and it also took fourteen months from the time they finished shooting before it came out. That's two months after getting hired to do amityville viewers today enjoy seeing some of the early work done by those later famous actresses. I mentioned earlier. Laurie laughlin who would be one of the main stars of the very popular late. Nineteen eighty s early nineteen ninety s sitcom on television full house and also soon to be the romcom queen for several years meg ryan for laughlin. She was a regular on the tv. So called the edge of night amityville. Three d represented her first feature film. He or she would be playing john. Baxter's dan susan meg ryan. She was appearing on a different soap opera. As the world turns playing susan's best friend. Lisa fleischer lady claimed in interviews. When meg ryan really took off that he cast ryan the moment. He saw her because she had undeniable star presence. Study saw within her ryan says amityville. Three d really didn't do much for her career but it did do a lot for the entertainment value of her friends. Exteriors were filmed for ten days at the same house as the first feature in tom's river. New jersey other locations. We're not too far off in the town. Although it was not the original long island home purportedly on demonic possessed land. The toms river home used for the three amityville movies was scheduled to be relocated. Shortly after the shoe the infamous quarter moon windows in the front at least they were already replaced because there were too many intruders and really annoying people coming to take pictures and ask questions. Most shots use the rear windows where the river entrance and the back deck were located and those windows had not yet been replaced as the location of the house was going to be going away. They determined that this entry in the amityville series will be the last one using this house which is why at the end of this film. It has basically destroyed now for makeup duties dino courted jeff goodwin here performing makeup for this other three d film at the time called. Rottweiler dogs of hell. That was being filmed in north carolina which was where the dolores was building his new studios at least soon to build them. Goodwin did turn down amityville three d. Because he felt he wasn't yet quite skilled enough to handle the kind of full body creature effects that were called for in this film. He did accept working with dino though the next year when he was asked to cattai and that began an impressive run of work for goodwin doing makeup for deliverance. His films in one thousand nine hundred five nine thousand nine hundred eighty six now in goodwin instead dino did bring back dick smith. Protege john caglayan leon. If that sounds familiar he did the make up for amityville to kagley own crafted Very articulated demon for the finale. More elaborate full bodysuit version of the one that he designed for the main nemesis in amityville to this was designed to display a number facial expressions. Catalin volunteered actually to be the actor inside the suit for the movie because he wanted to know what it was like for the actors that he did make up on what they had to go through ultimately though he was disappointed. A lot of the demon screen time that was shot was greatly reduced in the final cut. You really don't see it on a screen for visual effects. Were done by gary platek. Who used the gig as an excuse to leave industrial light magic and he was going to form a new company in san rafael california called jacks effects. Jd x. known later for their work on the look who's talking movies platek and his team the floating spirit visuals. They did some of the housefly appearances in the film and also some the goings on that we see within the deep well in the basement kind of comes to life ended starts bubbling over and all kinds of crazy things. Start coming out of it. Play tic regionally had been scheduled for just ten effects shots at a modest budget of two hundred and fifty thousand dollars but by the end of the production. They had really upped that to thirty two shots and around. Five hundred. Thousand dollars to simulate severe cold within the house candy clark. Who plays melanie. The photographer and the assistant of john baxter. In this film she had to keep a very small box that had holes in it and it was full of dry is she had to keep it in her mouth so that it looked like condensation. It was emanating for her breath in the cold. A simulated cold blast hitter right square in the face and upper torso that was done with hot wax and glitter. It was very uncomfortable for clark because the wax was starting to harden through successive takes and the glitter felt like sand as it pelted her in the face after the day's shoot clark struggled to get the wax out of her hair. She had to wash it over twenty times for like two and a half hours with all kinds of different cleaning products that she could find around the house hoping that at least one of them was going to get some of this wax out. She says that a tide laundry detergent seem to work. The best for seen where melanie's car erupts into flames. Clark wanted to perform the stunt herself but fleischer insisted on a stunt double because of the risks involved. Clark found watching the stunt double. Do this stunt. It was to see the stunt woman's petroleum jelly coated arm on fire for what seemed to be a very long time. That clark was relieved. She didn't go through with it. Fleischer did want footage of clark though inside the flaming car although she was not as close to the flames as it would appear. When you're watching. This film clark's body was covered with flame retarded except for her hair which you had to be careful of when she started screaming in terror. Her acting was so convincing that the cameraman shooting this he started to grow panicked that she was really in pain. And he wandered. Why fleischer was not yelling. Cut and was so relieved when he found out after it finally cut that she was doing some pretty impressive acting for that sequence a swarm one point six million sterile male flies. They were ordered from the us department of agriculture. Used for the scene where john hopkins. Who is playing the amityville homes real estate agent. He's going to be covered with them. Least covered to death essentially. Initially they hoped that the this volume of flies would result in. Incidentally some landing on the actor by happenstance hearkens wore a second skin like mask it was going to have some dead flies already glued to it while everybody else in. The room was covered with gauze netting or respirator masks to make sure that the flies didn't get in their nostrils or their mouths. It didn't work though the way that they thought they'd hear living flies along with the dead ones to the mask. It's still looked unconvincing. So they dense mirrored hearkens face and body with this pewter smelling female flies sex hormone to try to track these male flies. The flies steel did not do everything that the expected so they crafted now. A dummy head of hearkens the holland it out from the back and they attached a vacuum tube so that they could blow the flies out of his mouth and they play the footage in reverse to make it appear as if the flies were going into his mouth and his nose down his throat. Now one of the animal wrangler film. Man miguel grisha. He had gotten a bit too confident in his ability to handle the venomous cobras. They were gonna use for one particular scene. One of them struck him in the hand. That scene involved the sand scam artists from the beginning. The film harold and emma caswell. They were going to return to the basement to pick up their audio equipment. And that's when one of the microphones was going to be shown is turning into a snake cobra coiling around herald castles leg and it would trip him into the pit of hell the whole in the basement. The cobra though remained clamped on miguel's hand as his partner his brother humberto. He implored him to remove that cobra. Very carefully without breaking either one of its fangs. Probably be fatal. Wouldn't be able to get the medical systems. They need to get both the venom and the thing out. Miguel painfully extricated that cobra and he returned the snake back into its sack while he started sucking out the venom from the wound. He immediately received treatment from the doctor that was on hand and was out for about two days very ill to add. Insult to injury. This scene was not used in the final cut. Unlike some of the crew and their calamities here the cast did reportedly find the production to be quite enjoyable like a working vacation of story. The more adult members of the cast of quickly bonded. They frequently enjoyed going out. They started partying. They started socializing in mexico city together. They became pretty good friends. During this shoot many of the cast retain fond memories of mexico city and of enjoying each other's company. They were fond of the memory but fewer of having this film in their photography though very few of them choose to discuss the film when it comes up in interviews today some remarked film that a lot of the script cleverness the emotion that the song in it did not really translate to the screen. It's much more gimmicky. And derivative poltergeist in the end. Not everything was fun and games. Though for the mexico shoot just before the production began some of the cast and crew. They visited the tail. T khaqan pyramids outside of mexico city. They climbed up the multitudinous steep steps to get to the top of those pyramids. Candy clark as fit as she thought she was. She started experiencing severe cramps in her eyes and her leg started up and she needed assistance in returning back down. She was so sore on the first day of the shoot. He was relieved to find out that they were gonna start to shoot with the sand sequence. Because that's where she was going to be. Seated for nearly the entire sequence dysentery was also common among cast and crew. Some of them would get at several times through the shoot enough to have a doctor always on call. That doctor was very very busy with the people getting sick here. They also experienced a couple of unnerving earthquakes during their time. There howard blakey composed the score. He had worked with dino. Before and flash gordon that gets overlooked because of the queen song flash gordon but he did the more traditional scoring within that film. He works here again. With de la renta with this composition. That is actually really good. It's maybe too good for this kind of vapid film. I really wish it was chosen for much more suspenseful. An interesting film blake does take a very classical approach here. This could have been a score from any number of horror films from the nineteen fifties or sixties. It really is kinda hitchcock in a little bit. Like bernard hermann ask in. Its way when fleischer took a look at the first cut of his film. He was unhappy with it. He felt it was too slack so he started doing some trimming he wanted to tighten is fill up as much as he could chop out actually about twenty five minutes of that i cut however he was told that what he did produce was too short for tv screening so he needed to hold on to that cut because they were gonna show that on tv screenings there was an emotional scene of susan baxter's funeral. She was a main victim in the film. She was also a victim of the editing process. Employed here she was cut out at least toward the end of this film as well as more time with the central demon that was chopped out. He now just pops up for a jump scare and then takes elliott west down with him to the pit of hell before the house seemingly randomly explodes. The post production delays pushed the theatrical release date to november eighteenth nineteen eighty so that took it out of that all important halloween period. A novelization of the film. That actually was done. You would think that a three d. movie wouldn't have a novelization necessarily but it was done and it was called amityville. Three d it was written by gordon. Mcgill and but mystifyingly hit bookstores. Six months after the film was already gone completely from theaters and from the minds of most people the three d. effects here well they were considered pretty shoddy even for its era by movie goers. It was very dark. A lot of people complain about the darkness of the film when it was displayed in theaters. There were plenty of objects that do come at the camera. You see a frisbee see all of these flies. That was a giant lead. Pipe through window. There was a stuffed swordfish. That's one of the more famous kind of absurd things that jump out at you on the screen. Unfortunately the process of the three did degrade the quality of the overall film and it made it a lot blurrier around the edges. Lighting is too distracting. Especially when you watch this in a to d format. There's only so much they can do to make it. look good. Despite the three gimmick the rush to capitalize on the franchise name amityville. Three d fell out of theaters very quickly within three weeks. It only earned about half of the take of its predecessor which was disappointing in and of itself. It only earned six point three million dollars in. Us theaters audiences really. They had grown tired of the three d. process. This point especially since a lot of those three d films were among the worst films of the prior two years this would also be the final wide release three d feature in theaters in early nineteen eighty s and unfortunately unlike the first two films amityville three d is completely divorced from any pretense that what we're witnessing is something that actually happened. At least anecdotally. They're really just is not anything in of itself that's terrifying about housefly attack. Sir elevators runamuck blast of cold air fleischer though blamed the marketing itself for the failure of amityville. Three thought. This should be a bigger hit. He said that it was barely advertised. And what advertisements. They did do made the film look like it was embarrassingly cheap. He felt it was a much better production than that. As far as what. I think well amityville three d. I will say it's not as bad as many other. Nineteen eighty s three films. In fact it's probably of the ones that i've seen at least one of the better efforts to try to do something but it also doesn't really strive to be a truly good film independent of that three the spite e-class your approach here. I think the biggest knock on amityville. Three d is that it is pretty dull comparatively to other horror movies of its era and it's very derivative in comparison. Like i said to poltergeist. It's three the effects were deemed a bust lot of complaints to darcy. Still dark to see when you watch it in two d although it is better but what could be seeing still looks sub-standard at least compared to other films of its era. That didn't have three kind of ruining the filming the staging of the three shots. They really look awkward when you view it in a to format which most people who are watching this today as well as the years. Most people watched it on tv. We're on home video. Very few people see it in the theaters. So it does have an alternate title. As i mentioned of amityville the demon so further causing a lot of confusion among the public as to what the actual name is of this film and how it ties in now. All of these technical problems aside. I think the dialog is also to elementary the motivations of the characters too implausible to make any what we're seeing compelling many aspects of the scares seem totally contrived or outright nonsensical again as with the other films. The house for some reason is not the only thing that is cursed whatever spirits lie within the house also decided along for the ride usually in the form of a fly that appear out in public places to one of the characters buzzing around their face away from the home i think one of the silliest scenes i can think of in this film we see john baxter. He's either soaring. To the top or plummeting to the bottom floor of a building in a wild elevator ride after visiting his literary agents office building and despite nearly dying in that sequence from the elevator runamuck when baxter's photographer colleague from reveal melania's spooked by a blast of cold that she felt within the house. He asks her why this event happened to her but not the him completely forgetting that he nearly was killed in this freak accident just the day before had no discernible explanation could not have been imagined. There were other people that knew. He was trapped in this elevator. That was soaring or plummeting almost to his doom. There's been no shortage of amityville films after this over the years. They're still making them today. In fact amityville three happened to be the last theatrically released effort among all of those like almost two dozen of them. Except for the two thousand five remake of the nineteen seventy nine film. That came out with ryan reynolds which was not worth really going out to sea either so for all intents and purposes amityville 's cachet as a property kind of ended here as far as the releases even though the name amityville still denotes a haunted house for many people that are looking for such fair. And that's why it continues to be used to this day and it's free to use. There is a town called amityville. They don't tie it to the original films. If they don't have rights they can continue calling it that so two stars out of four is what i give amityville three d two stars out of four means that it's lacking something vital that would keep it from being something that i can recommend to most people and that which is lacking here is any kind of effort to make it unique or interesting beyond three gimmick. Watch it in three d format. Maybe you'll get more mileage out of it because it was kind of a novelty film. It was intended to be viewed in such a fashion on. Its own it's stuff you've seen before and seen done better especially if you've watched poltergeist and that's why i can only give amityville three d two stars out of four well unfortunately or maybe fortunately depending on how you feel about this and the amityville horror is not going to die here because coming up next. I'm going to be reviewing amityville horror. The evil escapes sometimes called amityville. Four depending on video released but amityville horror has the novelty eventually tying in somewhat with the original nineteen seventy nine film senator stern who did original screenplay also does the screenplay for this one as well as dante jones who worked with the lutzes to write the amityville horror part to the book that he did that was released in nineteen eighty-two that covers a lot of the material that you're going to see in this film as well as the next film that follows this so returning the film franchise as it were back to that first film somewhat. Anyway this was a made for tv movie that was released in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine so if you have the chance to check out amityville horror the evil escapes. Patty duke and jane wyatt are in that film so some interesting things. Here willoughby better than the diller renta's productions that awaits to be seen this will be. I watch for me so check it out if you can't amityville horror evil escapes for the next episode of around the world eighties movies.

"Roberts. Tess harper candy. Clark robert joy and some pretty early work here from lori. Loughlin and mate ryan john harkins and neil berry round out the main cast richard fleischer is the director screenplay credited to william wales which happens to be sued him for david ambrose and the success of nineteen seventy-nine the amityville horror american international pictures. They were soon acquired by film ways. They bought the rights to hans. Holzer's book called murder in amityville which was published in nineteen seventy-nine. They wanted this to be a potential cinematic for up to the amityville horror and holds book relates the real life murders that occurred in nineteen. Seventy four involed. Ronald butch defeo he and murdered his parents and his four siblings in their respective beds within the family home and his defense claim was that he was under demonic influence. That caused him to do these. Things as the book relates events. That were a matter of public record prior to the. Let's family experienced that. We came to know in the amityville horror film ways. They determined that. Need not worry about securing any kind of deal with the losses or anyone else in one thousand nine hundred one film producer dino dila renta's he also made it deal with film ways he wanted to do a sequel story. That would contain completely fictional characters who move into the amityville home. Dino commission british novelist and playwright. David ambrose descript this new story then entitled death in amityville dino's tentative choice for the director was the legend of hell house. Director john huff. He was going to take charge. Then he changed his mind to hungarian-born canadian director. George calendar with production start date at least at the time slot for september of nineteen eighty one but production paused the started working with film ways to produce their prequel concept that they were having a hard time getting off the ground. He was gonna do that one. I and that resulted in the one thousand nine hundred eighty two released. I talked about on the previous episode. Amityville to the possession after amityville. Two's release death in. Amityville was quickly announced as the third amityville film with a new release date of august. Nineteen eighty-three but it wasn't going to be called death in amityville because with the new wave of three d genre films filling the theaters in the prior two years dino wanted to ride this wave into his own three d movie and this would allow him to cleverly sidestep this sequel legalities of title while still keeping it a presumptive. Follow up in the mind of the public by calling it amityville. Three d amityville. Three d was fast tracked. Dna was hoping the ride the coattails not only of the three d. craze at the time but also of poltergeist that came out in nineteen eighty. Two this was a film. Dino really wanted to capitalize on. He thought that he had a similar property so he ordered revisions sill plate. You ristic of the pull. The guy's property. David ambrose the screenwriter death amityville. He opted to use a pseudonym for the subsequent script. Revisions william wales. Maybe it was commemorating the birth in one thousand nine hundred eighty two of william the son of the prince and princess of wales charles and diana the poltergeist elements that were introduced into death in amityville. Those included a psychic research. Team was a daughter that was going to need rescuing those nasty looking demon on the other side of this portal to contend with as a peachy rating. Very much like poltergeist. Even though the previous amityville films were r. rated entries this film would mentioned the defeo murders by name although many people who are watching. This don't know that this was not going to be sequel. Presuming his two sequel. We learned in amityville to that. The name of the family that was slaughtered by the eldest boy with a shotgun that was the mentalities in the film. It was changed from the details. The let's family. They're not even referred to at all in this fill except a blanket statement about crazy things that happened to the houses. Prior residents for legal reasons though the film does have the disclaimer. This picture is not a sequel on it script. Changes did delay the beginning of filming for several weeks. Release date eventually moved up from august of nineteen eighty three to four teeth. They were hoping to capitalize at that time on the horror movie interest. Naturally that comes about prior to halloween in the completed script for amityville. Three john baxter. He's recently divorced journalist. Who's working for this. Investigative magazine called. Reveal if you read the novelization or if you read any of the scripts that magazine is called witness but for some reason. Change to reveal for the movie. John baxter's lead. This assignment is to expose this sands scam. That's operating within that infamous abandoned amityville home on long island. New york afterward baxter finds at the house is immensely affordable. It has assorted history of terrible things happening to those who've been inside so we can get it for a song and baxter apparently need to find a new place because he just divorced his wife. This one has fourteen rooms covering three floors pay. Perfect for any newly divorced bachelor to take residence in he into the house. He certain all of these higher calamities where is they were delusions or just straight up hoaxes. The bottomless pit in the basement. Others claim that's a portal to hell. Well that's just an abandoned. Well it has plenty of space for himself as well as his teenage daughter when she comes to visit as well as solitude for writing the great american novel that he's been talking about doing for years others around him soon began to experience strange events and the employer john to leave but he won't. He's convinced the house's reputation is causing mass hysteria among all of his associates unfortunately with his daughter staying with him on occasion john is going to soon discover. That being wrong might just be dead wrong more to the story than that. Not a lot more but you get the drift of what this film is going to be about. I'm sure now. Dino de larent- is selected. Richard fleischer to direct amityville. Three d fleischer had worked with before for barabbas and nineteen sixty one. Mending go and nineteen seventy-five amityville three d. This would be the first of four consecutive films that fleischer directed for dino de la renta's conan the destroyer red sonja and million dollar mystery followed this. Those four that he did for dido they would be the final four films that he did in his career. Fleischer came in with experience. Directing three films already helmed. A movie called arena. They came out. In one thousand nine hundred eighty three back then to three d technology was a little different arena required to cameras to film it re also required to projectors to display in the theaters whereas the air flex technology of amityville. Three d only required one camera to film and one projector to show it. Fleischer harkened back to those days of nineteen fifties chillers. He was going to try here or more classical approach to his haunted house flick in its look and it sounded. It's feel really counter programming to the slasher movie vibe that dominated so much horror in the early nineteen eighties as dino wanted this to go very quickly from production screen. Many of the main actors were signed on without having to do any auditions at all woody allen film regular tony roberts. He got the lead role of john. B-actor some viewers today.

Covid: Trump back at work in Oval Office days after testing positive

"Ari Fleischer. Who is a Republican who obviously knows his way around the White House and communications he said this today if trump returns to the White House, they'll be tempted to go to the oval he can't do that. This is from Monday. He can't break quarantine or do things. The rest of us aren't supposed to do if we get covid how he handles himself is a metaphor for how he handles the nation. This White House must realize that like so many other tweets reverend this felt like a plaintive cry he's hoping the Republican White House realizes it. They don't this tweet has an age well given that they're violating all of that. But your thoughts about how important it is in storytelling in challenge tonight on that debate stage. For Comma Harris to say, do you WanNa know how their policy works look at how it fails to protect that? Absolutely it gives the storyline to counter and you really don't know. If you vice-president. Pence how you defended the narrative that the Republicans and and the president and vice president has tried to sell is that everything is all right is not as bad as you think. Trump comes out of the hospital and say, you don't let it dominate your life. So. That's why goes to the Oval Office. Today yourselves with two hundred overturned and eleven. Thousand people have died millions infected alley route you. Would you say those two hundred eleven thousand people let it dominate their life. They're not with US anymore. Yeah. It in their life. That's how much dominating but. The city and I'm looking at it via with stages. I wasn't all four with the primary debates. The setting is he's got to defend this through Plexiglas I. mean the visual will cancel out anything. It's like me sitting in jail looking through the boss talking about I might go on vacation you like you out of your mind looking. Glass trying to tell everything tell everybody and everyone's all right. That's one. Secondly, he has no idea where this president may be doing while he's talked I mean can you imagine sitting on stage and you have twitter in chief that make the undermining anything you're saying like he may tweet in the middle of the debate I've changed my mind again about. Having covert release, old less changer back I want to help the airlines. This man is not well in a normal circumstance who knows what the medicine is doing to, and for you you have been have to defend that case almost makes me feel sorry for vice president turns only reason I?

A Look At Biden's Campaign Strategy Four Months Ahead Of November's Election

"That one of its most effective weapons against Trump is trump himself. What he says and how he acts. But gun says they're also trying to lay out. The clear difference between these two men are best counterprogramming to Donald Trump is contrast Joe Biden's leadership, his vision for the future. His steadiness. His experience to deal with crises. With what people are getting from their president. Right now, Democratic strategist Paul Begala says the Corona virus pandemic makes the contrast feels sharper than it did in 2016 when he was just a candidate People Judge Trump the way they judged him when he was just a reality TV show. Oh, look, he's picked a Twitter war with Rosie O'Donnell. When you're president and people are dying, picking a Twitter war with bubble Wallace, the NASCAR driver doesn't save my mom's life. Begala points out that in the last century, voters have fired only three elected presidents. And one thing that happened to the incumbent in all of those cases is that people just stopped listening to the president. They gave up on him. I think that Biden strategies to let Trump fail. That's Ari Fleischer. He was press secretary under George W. Bush make biting the smallest possible don't make him an issue. Don't put him in a position to say you ain't black anybody else ever again or make any other foibles like that? And lead Donald Trump take all the heat. He was referring to a controversial comment that Vita made on the breakfast club, Fleischer admits part of what makes this all hard for Trump is that he has a shadow opponent. Biden is nowhere near is visible is the president In the last month, he held three public virtual events, seven in person events, all in Delaware, Pennsylvania, and he did a total of six TV interviews. Pleasure, says Trump just doesn't know how to handle this Loki Biden. For starters, he thinks the nickname Sleepy Joe is off with 3.5 years of President Trump being as red hot as he is. And with the covert scare underway. Sleepy also can notes calm, which very well may be the antidote for many voters. To the trump era. Fleischer suggests jump should try to paint Biden as weak. Button himself may be focused on the less is more strategy. But operationally, Democrats say they're much better position than they were four years ago. Lavoro Barnes is the chair of the Michigan Democratic Party. If you were to have parachuted in at this point in 2016 I think you would have found that there were probably about 20 people on the ground. The difference here is that we have about 160 people on the ground on the ground is figurative. Nobody from dividing campaign is knocking. Indoors. Even though Trump campaign volunteers are Democrats say that's foolish given the rising number of covert cases. But for now, that's not their fight.

"Title role if they wanted to make five sequels on top of that and he also thought that she could handle the role of her nemesis. Still quite well. Randy Quaid somehow was also offered a role to appear. He was offered a role of this bumbling idiot who ends up getting in trouble and needs Sonia come save him but he ended up declining because he felt that he had played too many oaths in his career he wanted to avoid getting continued typecasting now after they had made this film and it was about to be released. The advertisements for Red Sonja really started to play up Schwarzenegger's involvement although he's clearly not the main star of the future. If you watch the poster displays Schwarzenegger much more prominently the Nielsen. And he appears first in the credits not only on the poster but in the movie itself now in other countries it was even worse than what they did in the United States. The title is actually named in many countries after his character. Instead of after Sonya I Schwartz nigger ended up deeply resenting that his fans. We're going to be fooled into thinking that he was the main star of this movie. He didn't even want to be in and even though he wasn't on the shoot they really maximize the amount of footage that they had which works ear to be put into the film. They even include detest shots of him riding a horse around that he did at the beginning and put those into the movie. One clever thing that they did in order to get more footage Schwarzenegger to us is that. Whenever he appeared in a scene they used three different cameras rolling footage of calendars scenes and somehow through clever editing. They ended up stretching his screen time to seem like he was in the film a lot. More and from then on thinker was miffed. He swore he would never accept appearing in a film in which he did not believe in one hundred percent now. Objectively Red Sonja is a pretty bad film. It has terrible acting if very amateurish and a lot of respects in the direction is just not that inspired but it does have some redeeming qualities. It has really appealing landscapes and has a Greek quality set designs. And that's because they ended up bringing over to respected Italians in show business cinematographer geese at Beirut and the costume and production design of Danilo Denali. Both of these talents work on some Federico Fellini's finest films and they also worked for Dylan RENTA's recently in Flash Gordon anymore. Twenty provides the excellent score. Which in itself does give it that Special Spaghetti Western vibe especially as you see the heroes trotting around to that score on horseback now. That score for Red Sonja has not quite earned the reputation in comparison to the iconic scores by Bastl Polidori for the Conan films and I think that's primarily because of the reputation of Red Sonja more so than the quality. I would say it's on the same level of silliness if you want to gauge it. As CONAN THE DESTROYER. It does have less arnold so that automatically probably makes it less appealing to most people. The acting here really is a liability even from Schwarzenegger who delivers one of his worst performances. In this movie but there are some Nice comical supporting performances by twelve year. Old Karate Champion. Ernie Reyes junior as Prince. Tarn and Paul Elspeth. Who really is kind of a scene stealer? To a certain extent he came over. After making Dune for Della RENTA's he plays Prince Torrance. Faithful Servant Falcon. They definitely provide some welcome comic relief to this otherwise pretty stiff material and I often forgotten among the cast Ronald Lacey. He plays gibbons main minion equal. Which is Loki spelled backwards. This is a part that's very similar to his most memorable of roles in of the lost Ark. And I guess maybe kind of a coincidence both of those films featured the quest for a powerful artifact or object that can be used to take over the world now Red Sonja when it was released it was greeted with absolutely skeeving critical reviews and fair just as badly at the box office with a fifteen million dollar budget still did not make. It's money back. Debuted at number ten in its debut week with only two point two million dollars and then fell rapidly out of sight after that all told in United States. It only earned seven million dollars in its entire run now. Granted did not help to be released on the same day as a blockbuster known as back to the future but against a dramatic non blockbuster in the form of the Emerald Forest also was released the same week the Emerald Forest me three times as much in its entire run and that did not have any bankable stars to tout now doodoo feeling used to sell the film at the cost of his reputation and maybe to keep some distance from red. Sonja would be one of the rare instances in Arnold Schwarzenegger's career in which he declined to do any promotion at all for one of his films years later. Schwarzenegger who almost always speaks highly of pretty much every movie. He's participated in even if they really sucked. He called Red Sonja the worst movie. He's ever made any often quips. That when his kids misbehave he threatens to send them into the rooms and forced him to watch it ten times and they pretty much stopped giving him trouble after that now as with Conan the destroyer Red Sonia's only awards consideration would be the Golden Raspberry awards the razzies you know. These are the ironic awards given to the worst prominent films of the Year Brigitte Nielsen. She took the award for worst New Star and she also got a nomination for worst actress. Now Senator Bergman also received a Razzie nomination for worst supporting actress but she ended up losing that dubious price too rigid Nielsen because of her supporting turn in Rocky Ford. She took that award so she ended up with two razzies and despite her multi picture contract with Della Rees the critical and financial dropping that endured assured that they would never be equal. Because de la. Renta's pretty much went bankrupt within a year or two after this. So that pretty much killed the franchise not only for Red Sonja but for Conan. In general it really did bury a lot of people. Luckily though Schwarzenegger still was able to endure in fact Maria Shriver when they were first screening. The film in a theater leaned over to Arnold and said if this doesn't end your career nothing will and nothing really has but it's still a pretty lackluster movie. I have kind of a soft spot for it. There are a lot of elements he kind of learned to like over the years. I really liked the way it looks. I've gotten to really enjoy some of the hammer aspects of the film too so it's a bit of ironic movie watching but there is something still intrinsically enjoyable about sitting there watching. Red Sonja even through its awfulness. So that's why it can't be too harsh. I can't really be generous either but I will give Red Sonja to stars out of four stars on my skill means that I do think it's lacking something. Vital that would keep it from being a movie that I recommend to. Most people on that thing that it's really lacking here is any real inspiration. In terms of its storyline. It really does have a bubblegum comic book story that most people would end up ignoring for the bells and whistles and even if it plays as a comic book. I think your average issue of Conan the barbarian written by Roy. Thomas is infinitely better to read than to endure this as a story but as a movie to crack open a beer or two or four or five I think there is an enjoyable aspect to Red Sonja despite its general awfulness enough here to give two stars out of four before I leave here. I will say that. There's been a lot of talk recently in recent years about restoring Red Sonja to the big screen. In fact over maybe even a decade ago there was. Talk about rebooting the franchise. Robert Rodriguez really wanted to bring this to the big screen. Rose McGowan was going to be his Red Sonja however a severe injury to McGowan's arm left it pretty difficult to move his her arm and do any kind of sword fighting so they had to kind of abandoned that idea in two thousand eleven Simon West Te- was tagged to lead a Red Sonja reboot with the possibility of amber heard being in that role but Conan the barbarian the boot with Jason. Momoa bomb big at the box office. That really nixed any interest in doing a similar film. However I think the reason why it's become such a hot commodity in the last couple of years was the success of twenty-seven teens wonder woman then that's when they really looked for other similar properties that they capitalize on that would make this a lucrative feature for somebody wants to take it up in fact in two thousand. Eighteen Bryan singer became attached to direct. The next Red Sonja however sexual assault allegations ended up finding him removed. And recently he's been replaced with Jill Solloway. So will it still make it to the big screen? We don't know but at the very least somebody out there is really trying to bring it back anyway.

"Red Sonja prior to Conan the destroyers release so delegates ended up offering to amend the five picture contract that he had wish worth nigger for Conan with contemporary films in exchange for Schwarzenegger doing his cameo in Red Sonja. Now after his very soon to be fiancee. Maria Shriver read the script for Red Sonja. She told Arnold it was trash and he should not do it. Arnold also agreed with her assessment. He did not like the script at all and he really did not want to appear but he felt he owed dino of favor and even if he wasn't going to do it as a favor he really didn't have a choice his contract with dino obligated him now for legal reasons the role would not be CONAN though at least not in name because rights to the CONAN movies owned by universal pictures and this was an M. G. M. U. A. Release de la. Renta's did not want to pay universal for the rights to carry him over to another studio so the script listed his character as the stranger in order to leave it. Ambiguous as to whether it was Conan to audiences and while Schwarzenegger was on the shoot in Italy the ended up expanding his cameo into a full-fledged supporting player he spent four weeks in Italy when he was only meant to spend one. And that's because the film makers were looking for every single place that they could inject Schwarzenegger's character into the story. He served as a romantic foil and then he also provided assistance in all of the battle sequences and the difficulty here was in throwing in the stranger but still allowing Sonia to appear as strong and not needing any help and staying the star the movie. Unfortunately they were not able to successfully navigate this in the end because it often appears Sonia actually does need rescuing from Lord Kaldor and Kaldor was the name that was given to the character the stranger primarily because MGM wanted to protect themselves from any lawsuits from universal pictures because the character steered very very close to Conan in look and personality. Adela renters had difficulty finding the right actress for the Red Sonja Role. He placed ADS INTO INDUSTRY. Publications to try to widen the net the casting requirements for the role included being a beautiful. Caucasian woman aged seventeen through twenty two five foot seven or taller with a strong face body and character. She was to be acrobatic and athletic enough to handle a broad sword into ride a horse but also hopefully be able to act another ad that he had sent out asked for women who look like Sonia she would have long flaming red hair flashing blue eyes and body that only comic strip women seem to possess and she should look like she might have a high proficiency at wielding a sword initially director. Richard Fleischer envision. Someone like Daryl Hannah now Daryl. Hannah was unavailable. She was making clan of the cave at the time somebody like that. He ended up moving onto Eileen Davidson from. Tv's the young and the restless Davidson ended up getting but turned down the role on the advice of her career advisers. Because this was not a one picture deal the contract stipulated that she would appear in five sequels if they so wanted to make them now playing Sonia for the next decade or more would end up typecasting her into this role and it would make it hard to appear in any other projects while still appearing on the soap. So Davidson passed within a couple of days. Lorenzo's found his Sonia on the cover of an Italian fashion magazine in the six tall twenty one year old. Danish fashion model named GITA. Neilson Neilson was reluctant to audition. She had no acting experience. Her husband said she really didn't have anything to lose. She should go for it and she did. She had no idea what the part was four until she arrived and she found nearly ninety other women would be actresses. Were also auditioning at the time. See she ended up putting on this ridiculous Valkyrie. Viking costume was too small for her because of her height and then she tried valiantly to memorize the six pages of dialogue in the forty minutes that she had before she ended up getting called in to audition when she finally got to meet Richard Fleischer. She could not remember a single word of the dialogue. She had tried to memorize but given dino had selected her for audition himself. The ended up. Still having your continue with the audition. They had her cycle through this range of emotional responses to see what she could do as an actress. Look happy look confused. Seductive and the hardest part trying to cry before she left that day de la. Renta'S HAD FLEISCHER ESCORT NIELSEN. Up to his office. Dino was immediately charmed that she knew some Italian phrases that she used to greet him and despite no acting experience or really delivering. Much of an audition de la. Renta's still awarded her the part on the spot unsure though she wanted to talk to her father about this and have them take a look over the paperwork. She never really heard of Red Sonja. Or even Arnold Schwarzenegger they had to say this guy with the muscles for her to have any understanding of who he was. After Neilson's father approved that day she ended up signing onto this eighteen million dollar contract for six Red Sonja pictures. Nielsen was immediately sent to London to get lessons on acting and speech as well as performing stunts on Horseback Sword. Fighting she not only was becoming Sonia. But also bridget or cheat she sometimes called Delta said her name Gita was ridiculous it he suggested the more common name of bridget and the name stuck now surely prior to the release eight Nielsen received much publicity after becoming romantically involved with Sylvester Stallone who subsequently ended up casting her in rocky four but the loan was not Nielsen's first celebrity conquest contrary to her role of a woman who had never have romantic relations with any man unless they bested her in battle. Nielsen herself had no such stipulations. She acted more like Zula from Conan the destroyer on how to attract a man. Grab Him and take him. And so she did although Schwarzenegger at first he had worn Nielsen after finding her a bit flirtatious with him. At the onset of the shoot that they were supposed to stay strictly professional. She really wanted him and she was determined to have him and she got him he had a sexual affair with her however agree to be more than that with Arnold as he came dangerously close to sabotaging his long term affair with Maria. Shriver to be with this young and passionate starlet. Who wanted to be his main. Squeeze however Nielsen's recklessness grew too much for Schwarzenegger he could not fathom this being anything more than a fling with her especially because he felt that she had abandoned her previous husband. Yes she was married at the time and she had an infant son back home she had left them behind to achieve stardom Nielsen. Even after this you continue to pursue Schwarznegger. She ended up going Hollywood to looper dialogue. And wanting to get back together but Schwarzenegger told her you know. It was fun while it lasted but he had the woman had he wanted to marry. It just could never be and Schwarzenegger did his best from then on to avoid here because he did not want the life that he had built up to be flipped upside down by her then she met stallone now. The public story that they tell is that she met stallone after sending him a message with her nude picture wanting to meet him and he ended up inviting her over to his hotel for a drink. Now that's their story. The way that Schwarzenegger tells it and at least according to the gossip mill is that. He bragged to his friends that he had used his lawyer to set up a dinner with Nielsen in which stallone who also had the same lawyer. Schwarzenegger was also in attendance and from then on Nielsen. And Stallone. Only had eyes for each other and Schwarzenegger ended up getting the biggest last laugh. He was able to keep his future wife with Maria on-track and he burdened his rival with the fool's gold of Nielsen's amorous attention now Nielsen herself. As far as being an actress. First Time actress in this film she just fetching. She doesn't have a lot of acting range here but I think she acquits herself. Relatively well under the circumstances even though she's objectively not a very good actress now for the main villain della renters had looked again to Conan by giving the Queen Gidron role to another statuesque athletic actress. Sandahl Burkan number was actually offered the Red Sonja role initially but she ended up declining. She preferred to expand her repertoire by playing the villain. Instead of Richard. Fleischer actually was relieved by this. In fact he kind of encouraged it. He never really felt that. Bergman was a strong choice for Sonia because of its franchise possibilities being in her early to mid thirties. Fleischer considered Sandal Bergman as wrong for the.

"Her annoying Pat Roach. He is here. Playing three separate roles plays the wizard. Tough Emma on a character of Robert de Howard's who was also the basis for many traits that were put into Elsa doom in Conan the barbarian roach happened to also be in the Carlo. Rambaldi designed caped eight-man suit which took five and a half hours of makeup time every day for about three weeks and he also and a lot of people don't know this. He donned the costume. When the UNCREDITWORTHY Andre the giant who reportedly was in the day off costume for the most part he suffered back pain and took eight people to give him into the suit and eight other people to control its mechanized aspects. Roach ended up wearing an astronaut suit inside because under the giant. What's much larger it? Kind of filled up that remaining space but also to stave off dehydration and had a doctor on hand to give him oxygen so he wouldn't pass out after being in the suit too long. Now the worst casting I feel for Conan. The Barbarian is tracey Walter. He plays the cowardly but cunning thief. Malik who feels here to provide the intended comic relief so at least his character pretty much a bust they did want Danny Devito for the part but he was unavailable so initially they cast. David l lander if you know that name. You're probably as old as I am. He played squeaky from Laverne and Shirley outlander he always seemed to be stepping on. Fleischer's toes and then he ended a falling ill during the shoot and reportedly was fired because he appeared to be stumbling drunk all the time. So land was gone and Walter ended up filling in the role after one day's notice now years afterward it was discovered that landers stumbling was actually the onset of multiple sclerosis now when Fleischer put together I cut. It ran more than three hours in length so he had to set about working with Rafaela. Villa RENTA's Dino's daughter who also produced the first film on his behalf. They had to chop it down to nearly half that length while still retaining as much action thrills as possible so a lot of exposition and character touches end up on that cutting room floor. Conan the barbarian do feel is a better film than the destroyer because Conan the barbarian has passion and it's based on the savage vision of a visionary director. John Milius who had a lot to say within the course of that movie Richard Fleischer. Here he was just a last minute hired gun for Conan the destroyer. He was only expected to package together. An entertaining product that was designed solely to make money in contrast to the first entry. The sequel is coated with too much cheese to not find it disappointment overall. I think though as a standalone piece. Interestingly it has not aged as poorly as other sword and sorcery flicks from the nineteen eighties. It is still very hokey but there is a particular enjoyment that can be. Had by watching this sequel. If you divorce it from the first film which for most people these days. It's hard to do because if you watch Conan the barbarian and you like it. You immediately want to watch Conan the destroyer which will probably destroy your evening if you happen to watch it in a marathon now. I think the film comes undone in two key scenes both for the same reasons which are battles against villains portrayed unconvincing rubber suits the first one involves a man ape version of the wizard off. Amman in a room of mirrors added by Stanley Man in his script. He was inspired by a similar character. In Robert De Howard rogues in the house the Mars the climax with its grotesquely. Silly looking dig costume. Because de la Renta's just would not pay for the Stop Motion Animation that they had wanted to make. But it still looks fake and it's ugliness repugnant and just doesn't work says if you want to read into this film. Any further than service level data is meant to be a metaphor for nuclear energy. It's something that promises unlimited power to people but it actually carries with it the ability to destroy humanity in the unleashing. This may explain why the monster looks like it would fit in Morena Godzilla flick than something that comes from the world of Conan. I think these scenes with these creatures are dark and gruesome and roads the tongue in cheek tone of the rest of the film on the Positive Cinematography by Academy Award Winning Jack Harf and a set an art design. And the Basle Polymer Score. He's returning here as composer from the first film. They're all genuine highlights. It does look and sound very good other than those rubber suits. But despite all of the attempts to try to broaden the franchise based with the Sequel Conan the destroyer still disappointed at the box office. It made only thirty one million dollars in the United States that was significantly less than forty million that was made by the more serious minded R. rated original. Some of this is due to the unfavourable competition. It had with other summer blockbusters ghostbusters and Gremlins were in theaters. Were dominating but even with this. It's still debuted lower than the other notable film released the same weekend cannonball run two which was not a good movie at all so the signs were there that this was just not going to be that good of a film financially it did however perform slightly better internationally than the first film and so it was a lucrative venture for them in the end but still as a sequel. Conan. The destroyer is a failure especially for fans of the original Robert. E Howard Works. It does not deliver on the tone or the promise of its film predecessor in broadening its fan base but as I mentioned as a standalone adventure it does maintain enough moments of enjoyment for fans of adventures that feature faraway lands exotic locales and the requisite wizards and warriors and princesses. So if you like that kind of thing you know if your expectations are low enough this dumb fund epic does make for a passably escapist guilty pleasure when you don't watch the two films back to back so for all of that I will give Conan the destroyer two and a half stars out of four Tuna Stars on my scale means. I do think that it had the tools that had the talent to be something more. You definitely had a good director here. At least one that has made good movies. You had Schwarzenegger back. You had a pretty good ensemble of colorful character actors in the mix here all of the requisite bells and whistles that you could want and yet it just falls short. It does not continue the first film in a way that satisfy big fans of that. It doesn't satisfy the fans of the Robert e Howard books and it just feels like a goofy sword and sorcery flick from the nineteen eighties. And if that's all you're looking for you'RE GONNA get it here and you're probably going to enjoy it on that level but anybody looking for more than that is really going to find that the pleasures are only too superficial to be anything more than just a time waster escapist entertainment so two and a half stars out of four is the best. I can give Conan the destroyer. Probably the best. Almost anybody should give it. Even though Roger Ebert gave it three stars now before I leave here I do want to say a few words. About where the franchise kind of went after this and why. They didn't come up with another movie. Because despite its financial success pretty much ended here now several months before the release of Conan the destroyer. They knew it was not going to be the blockbuster. They thought it could be Schwarzenegger agreed to help. Dila rentis get funding for another film. He was making almost concurrently called Red Sonja. Now Raton Sonja. The title character also comes from the Robert e Howard stories where she's called Red Sonja of rogue it. No and Sonia was a swashbuckling character. That was altered from her sixteenth century. Setting in the Robert e Howard's story to the Hibernian Age and popularized in comics by screenwriter Roy. Thomas in the pages of Conan the barbarian comic book for Marvel but for legal reasons to character Schwarzenegger portrays in red. Sonja would be Conan in everything but his name that relegates it to being kind of an unofficial spinoff Conan and for what it's worth it's going to be the film. I'm going to be discussing on next episode so check out one thousand nine hundred five Red Sonja if you haven't seen it ready to get prepared for the review. Now plans were for Schwarzenegger to continue to make three additional CONAN sequels because they were still lucrative universal pictures seen all in the added the adventures of CONAN attraction to its theme park into did very well. They purchased the film rights to all of the CONAN stories in anticipation for continuing including those not written by Robert. Howard but Schwarzenegger was souring on the films. He felt the alienated the Fan. Base by trying to broaden CONAN's appeal and Dino Delicious. He never really understood the character anyway or fantasy films in general. They were his biggest busts at the box office. For the most part so he really didn't care that much about continuing beyond commissioning a script for Conan three by car wagner that never really developed now in the early nineteen nineties Charles Edward Pogue. He was visiting Della Rentis actually Raphael and he thought they could do proper Conan story. He had some ideas in mind. Those ideas ended up turning into a story treatment. That universal pictures did green light entitled Conan the conqueror however Schwarzenegger's reticence to return to property caused universal to have to make changes to the main character because they thought that people would not accepting new CONAN CONAN became king call which was another robbery. Howard grazing call the conqueror and that bill the conqueror was released in the end in one. Thousand nine hundred. Seven starring not Schwarzenegger but TV actor. Kevin Sorbo Charles. Edward pogue script ended up not getting utilized for that project. Though John Milius he attended to return to the series he made a lot of noise on resurrecting the property as early as two thousand one with his script called King Conan crown of iron. He was going to be doing this for the House keys. And it was in development for a few years before which Hausky started losing their clout in the business. Robert Rodriguez ended up taking over the project for a few years when John milius abandoned it. But by this time. Arnold Schwarzenegger was governor of California. And he was going to be unavailable for white along time. So interest in that script ended up dying. Especially after Conan. Got A reboot in twenty eleven that star Jason. Momoa that flop at the box office. Pretty Big in twenty twelve though producer. Chris Morgan attempted to bring a nother CONAN project. Called the legend of Conan to the big screen and Schwarzenegger was interested in returning because he was done being governor California and was looking to strike back in the business. That was described by Morgan as a source re riff on. Clint Eastwood's unforgiven the older Conan looking back upon his life and his regrets. But after years of development hell universal scrapped the plans in two thousand seventeen because the budget was going to be pretty high and CONAN seemed to have questionable relevance in the more modern era and Schwarzenegger was not the box office. Dominator that he once was in his past. So there's still a lot of talk out there. That Schwarzenegger will return as Conan in one form or another but it continues to be in development. Hell even to this day. You can still find stories of him being interested in waiting for another project to get into. But I don't know I don't hold out a lot of hope at this point but you never know what's going to happen so that's where I will leave it for now.

"Wasn't going to shy away like millions did from giving Conan dialogue and emotional moments. Because he actually didn't feel at this point that his lead actors performance would detract from the adventure at hand. The title changed from Conan King of thieves at that point to Conan the destroyer because Arnold Schwarzenegger complained that Conan was really not a thief. He doesn't sneak around to steal the treasure. He really just goes up and takes what he wants. He doesn't worry that it's going to get him into trouble. And the destroyer seemed more fitting to the naming convention of the books. A lot of the books that were compiled Robert e Howard stories started with Conan the and then another word to describe him and also Conan usually leaves rebel in his wake so the destroyer seemed appropriate. The plot involves this power hungry. Queen named Tara amounts of shadows are played by Sara Douglass tariffs offers CONAN a bargain. She's going to resurrect his dead lover from the first film. Valeria bring back actually a character from the first film. She's going to resurrect her if he completes a special mission. Conan is to assist with the protection of tear. Mrs Niece this young Virgin Princess named Jenna played by Olivia Dabo. Jenna is going to travel with her bodyguard. Bata play by Wilt Chamberlain to venture into this mystical castle to retrieve a key in the form of a magic jewel called the heart of Armand that by prophecy. Only someone who bears the distinctive? Mark like Jenna can touch and this key is going to unlock a fabled horn that promises to bring the dorm dreamer. God Dig off to the mortal realm. The twist here is that at the end of the quest. Jen is going to be a sacrificial offering to dig off and Conan and his friends are going to die as well now. These friends that accompany cone include the Great Wizard Kiro. That's Mako appeared in the first film pretty much in the same character. The Agile Warrior named Zula play by Grace Jones and CONAN's comical site kick Malik. The thief played tracey. Walter Schwarzenegger felt it was just a mistake to make a PG rated CONAN adventure because in trying to broaden the film's appeal. They were taking away. The vitality the true nature of the character who is a warrior who continually engages in violent battles Fleischer. Here is upping the juvenile delivery for the younger audiences. He wants to branch the franchise out to kids who are either reading the comic books or they love pro wrestling matches or they liked the tomb. Raiding Adventures of Indiana Jones or similar premises like very popular television fair like the masters of the universe filming took place at various locations in Mexico. Where the peso's value had been at an all-time low into further. Save money some of the staging for diller antithesis Dune which was being made at the same time near the same place they were also used for Conan the destroyer while retaining a lot of the same crew to work on both films and as Dune became much more expensive de la Renta's ended up slashing the budget unfortunately for Conan several times in the in the end the film carried only a modest sixteen million dollar budget. That was less than even the first film which was much more of a gamble. Schwarzenegger here is decidedly more defined. In his physique in the sequel he reduced body fat and he added much more muscle weight and that was because Fleischer did not hold themselves to the kind of commitment to realism. That John Milius did for the first film last year when he first started working on the film. He was invited by Schwarzenegger up to his house to see him train. With using a sword things went without a hitch in the demonstration. Pleasure was very impressed with his physical talents but he did have one request after watching him. He felt that the first movie really did not utilize Arnold Physique enough. He looked more like a powerful version of an average man. This film he felt should spotlight. Arnold's chiseled frame in all its glory for as much as it can and Conan is going to be much more powerful. Fleischer felt that people would want to look at Arnold's body as much as they could so he had conan where as little as possible throughout the movie now the acting in Conan the destroyer is a major liability. And that's pretty typical of early. Schwarzenegger vehicles this liability is pretty evident whenever you see former NBA Great Wilt Chamberlain on the screen. He was really cast solely for his physical stature. Heat stands at a towering seven foot one inch tall. He doesn't have a lot of ability to emotion really. He doesn't even try to the ones Nag there. Though there weren't any horses that were tall enough for wilt to be able to sit on without his feet completely dragging on the ground in Mexico so they ended up importing another horse that was much taller from Spain. And one funny thing that would come out later we'll chamberlain claimed to have bedded over twenty thousand women in his life so looking at it nowadays. You can't help but find humor in the fact that Chamberlain play someone protecting the virginity of this princess as far as why. He's not tempted. There's this explanatory scene of Bomba being a eunuch. That ended up getting taken out of the script. But it does remain in the novelization. If you should read it now Fleischer felt that Chamberlain was a tremendous physical presence but he was too self conscious in front of the camera so he decided Lee steered giving Bombarda anything that would require lengthy dialogue or any kind of emotional range and that left the role merely as just a physical presence and a plot device that was going to break out in the climax as far as other casting concerned model and event guard singer Grace Jones. She does play the fierce warrior. Thief named Zula Zula happens to be a character created by Roy Thomas for the Conan the barbarian comic book but he was a man in the print form but they thought great would make a good fit here. They used the name Zula in the script as a placeholder until they could come up with something better but the producers liked the name so it stuck Zuahir Represents Grace Jones first significant acting role in anything other than some obscure Italian films. Jones turned down Conan for six months while she was pursuing another Italian movie. This one made by the nephew of Dino Diller rentis ultimately she accepted the role for Konan because the other project fell through a Grace Jones provides a uniquely feral look and a good physicality even if the role lacks dimension. She became overly enthusiastic during her battle. Sequences famous leave. She hit the stunt people hard with eight foot fighting stick and that caused them to have to put on a lot of extra padding whenever they did seen with her. She tampered any bruises with a kiss afterward. Though now one person who didn't get a kiss was wilt chamberlain. Grace Jones bit his ear hard in one scene enough to draw blood although people on the set. We're not surprised that this happened. Because she and wilt bitterly argued the entire time that they were on the set the Sarah. Douglas Chews the scenery as the evil sorceress. Terrorists Sarah Douglas had turned down the role six times before she told de la. Renta's finally yes but it was only because she had heard that her friend Grace Jones was going to be in the picture so she wanted to movie with her friend tariffs was supposed to be a much more sympathetic character than she appears in the final product because all of her redeeming qualities ended up on the cutting room floor. They were trying to trim down the film to a close to a ninety minute film as he could although. It seems unlikely. If you're watching this film in its current state. She did film a steamy love scene with CONAN. That was meant to be put in the film. I ended up getting trimmed out not only for time but to try to maintain that PG rating other scenes that were cut out terms involve involve such things as seducing the day Gov statue with some stroking and and slapping around bombarda very violently in one scene and she also performs the sacrifice of her niece. Now that nieces play by thirteen-year-old. Olivia Dabo. She's is basically whenever I. If not her first one of her first roles she's very fetching. As this young princess with an eye for Conan one of the only man she's ever laid eyes on in her virginal lifetime now. The young actress gives I think the closest thing that the film has toward delivering a nuanced performance. But she I feel undeservedly received a Razzie nomination actually two razzie nominations one for worst supporting actress and one for worst. New Star for her turn in this film as well as in Bolero. I have a feeling that Bolero was the one that really stunk up. All of the razzies but I like her in this film. I know a lot of people may find.

Can Voice AI have Emotional Intelligence? Feat. Rana Gujral CEO of Behavioral Signals

"I WANNA start off with a recent study that was done by Michael Krause of Yale. University and his research contended that the voice including both speech content and the linguistic impera linguistic vocal cues meaning hitch cadence speed and volume that accompany. It is a particularly powerful channel for perceiving the emotions of others and so he wrote that this assertion supports the central prediction tested in these studies. That voice only communication enhances empathetic relative to communication across senses. Can you speak to this at all? Why are we able to detect more empathy through voice? Yeah for sure. So first off a Weiss's are very bar. Fleischer of deducing the emotional state of mind more so than people understand and this study in particular by Professor Krausz is incredibly interesting. So let's talk a little bit about what he actually did. So basically he took a video feed of interaction and obviously there was audio as well and he turned the video off a just tried to measure the emotion based on simply the audio alone. Andy benchmark that I and he then turned up your back on and realize that you're looking at two data points. You're looking at the audio but you're also looking at the facial and you would expect that the read on emotions would become more accurate. But when he found was that it became actually less accurate and he was really surprised by that. And that's sort of pieces of the study and so thou sort of the whole study which minute think. Why is it that when I'm looking at both the visual and audio I'm actually getting a lesser read than men? I'm looking at just the audio. And so what he found was that as humans very adept at master emotions to facial expressions or not really very good at doing the same throughout the tone of voice. So if you just queuing in onto the tone of voice which is just listening to somebody on the phone. You actually have a better read on the emotional state of mind than when you're looking at the person enlisting to that and the reason that is is we sent out a lot of false alerts from facial expressions and bathrobes us off so although I'm sensing somebody something in someone's voice a facial expressions tell me otherwise and that's sort the interesting part of this whole study and so for us. The high quality data is voiced data in a variety of the use cases. We apply ourselves to provide us with a lot of data like call sanders contact centers including interactions virtual assistance where there's no visual feedback available. So not only. Is it more accurate to focus on waste but for us this more data available on voices visual data and then it adds to the accuracy? 'cause data leads to better outcomes and so those bandages provide us with a compelling differentiation from competitors because focus exclusively voice. That's kind of what we do. And the founders of this company have been researching the space for over twenty years. A lot of work has gone into the analysis poison reactions as well as the Bushland vehicles did apply behind the Watson Rashes yet and it's funny because when I read that study this was actually not the first time I've heard someone. Tell me that I had a psychologist years ago. That you can. Actually you get more honesty and more truth than a person from their voice than you do by seeing them which brings to the point right when you're talking to people sometimes. Somebody's talking to you and you're like I'm feeling this now like no no no. That's not what I'm saying like something feels off and I'm curious like do you think that that is the truth like whatever you're feeling from someone else or is that our own perception. No I think you perceptions accurate for the most part the feeling which you are. Deducing is based on a variety of factors. And I'm in. Your mind is processing the words but there's a lot more processing that's going on behind the scenes. You're doing off on the pitch on total variance in your acuity golf on the emphasis behind certain words. So let's take quick example if I ask you a simple question and You respond to be with a quick simple response. But I sent sarcasm in your voice. I'm going to take that into consideration right. Not just what you're saying how you're responding to me a what responding to me but how you're responding to me matters to me a lot because I understand your state of mind or I get a sense of his State of mind and that Jews into better. You mean what you're saying are not are you relating to my point of view So it's incredibly yes. I am personally faster by because I love this kind of psychology communication space with your company behavioral signals. Your team is answering the question. Can Machines be intelligent without emotions? What do you think about this? This is my favorite question. Because it's like it's got so many different layers to this question so I believe there are two parts to this question. I I is better. Machines can really be emotionally intelligent and the second part is whether there should be and that's a question which I guess asselot resist ethical or is from morality standpoint. Is that the right thing to do. So let's take those rights for the first part machines definitely. Can I mean one of the things that he is focused on is getting machine to do things that humans are just better at doing today but machine software systems inanimate system where you are call them they have their own superpowers for example they can process? Huge amounts of data and compute power can be dedicated to a specific task but as humans. We are distracted by a lot of different things. So you have those capabilities in a machine that can be leveraged to bring intelligent use cases to a picture and we're seeing now what we're seeing now is we're interacting with machines. Orrin bar and it's not just delegating tasks for a machine to do but actually interacting with the machine and talking to it for example we were talking about earlier like when it comes to churchill assistance like Google Assistant Alexa. Cortana were literally treating these inanimate entities as a human substitute bedridden directing that machines through Royce. We need to understand how interacted all humans? And when I'm interacting with you. I'm just saying something to me and I'm saying something back. I'm not just chewing on what you're saying. I'm also queuing on how you're saying it and trying to empathize with your cognitive state of mind and your feelings your emotions behind the words you're using and so when we're GONNA go back to the whole equation but machines I mean that erections best thing between human and machine and as a result a lot of these interactions don't really have a superior use case they're just very transactional and our goal is to provide the ability to these machines to be as good as humans than processing affect twitches or the technical term of emotion s and emotional state of mind so that they could be more relatable and how much more user engage experience for the fellow and it can be and there's a need to be for machines to be emotionally aware. Now let's tackle the should question and that's a little bit more complicated so in a way this touches on morality and I think morality is a tough question. And I don't know if I'm equipped to judge that personally but I would say that. The technology moralities are on proper disclosures about making a choice on your behalf right so by giving you the choice to experience what you want and don't want but there it serves the greater good or one-sided purpose if it is towards a one-sided purpose than yes. You're tampering on morality but if it's for a larger good that you're in the right direction but anything else you'd have a sense of discipline to be able to understand those subtle differences. Let's think about one particular thing so while we can bet on is that we are going to depend on machines more and more and that is something which is given and the second thing that we can bet on is. That machines are going to be more and more intelligence. And that's already starting to happen but if you sort of agree to those Detroit's Andy agreed Troops in mind would rather have a machine that you're interacting with and depending on which is very very intelligent emotionally aware or not emotionally aware and so that is a question when he draws ourselves to. How would you respond to that human question and that human contact's but if you think about that in the human contact me if you have a human who you depend on and who's very intelligent but is not emotionally aware? Well that is the clinical definition of psychopath. I mean so. It would be one machine cycle PATs. I want I in my emotionally. Intelligent machine would typically be more ethical and fairer rather than very diligent machine. You depend on. Who has no ability to process emotions? So that's how I feel and that's where we believe in

Breaking Down Bloomberg's First Debate

"Up on today's podcast. The ninth and possibly the liveliest democratic debate in Las Vegas. This was the first debate performance for Michael Bloomberg and the other candidates came out swinging. I like to talk about who were running against a billionaire who calls women fat broads and horseface lesbians and no. I'm not talking about Donald Trump. I'm talking about Mayor Bloomberg. It was also the first chance for Bloomberg to respond to criticism on the public stage. Here's an exchange with Senator Elizabeth Warren as she pressed him to release women employees from nondisclosure agreements that prevent them from talking about sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace. I hope you heard what is defense was. I've been nice to some women. The mayor has to stand on his record and what we need to know. Exactly what's lurking out there? He has gotten some number of women. Dozens who knows to sign nondisclosure agreements. Both for sexual harassment and for gender discrimination in the workplace. So Mr Are you willing to release all of those women from those nondisclosure agreements? So we can hear their side of the story. We have a very few nondisclosure agreements. How many finish. How many of them accused me of doing anything? Other than maybe. They didn't like joke. I told and let me let me play agreements between two parties. That wanted to keep it quiet and that's up to them. They signed those agreements and we'll live with taxes you know from all sides and just want to show everybody a quick exchange between Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg believed it Democratic Socialists. Working People not billion as healthcare for all educational opportunities. Chopstick we have the best known socialists. In the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. But I miss here. Well you'll still work in Washington housewives. The first problem live in Burlington House too. That's good and like thousands of other Vermont. Subba cap to give me for that whereas your home which talks which tax haven New York New York City. Thank you very much on my taxes. And I'm happy to do it because I get something for. Bloomberg also drew negative reaction from the audience for his comments on releasing his tax retur variously transparency Mayor Bloomberg. Your campaign has said that he would eventually release your tax records when it comes to transparency but people are already voting now why should Democratic voters have to wait? It just takes us a long time unfortunately or fortunately fortunately I make a lot of money and we business all around the world and we are preparing. The number of pages will probably be the thousands of pages. I can't go to turbo tax but I put up my tax return every year for twelve years in City Hall. We will put out this one. It says tells everybody everything they need to know about every investments that I make and where the money goes and the biggest item is all the money I give away and we list that every single donation I make and you can get that from our from our foundation anytime you want. And this was Bloomberg's response to whether he supported Senator Bernie Sanders proposal. That would require all large companies to turn over up to twenty percent of their ownership to employees overtime absolutely not. I can't think of a ways that would make it easier for Donald Trump to get reelected and listening to this conversation ridiculous. We're not going to throw out capitalism. We tried that other countries tried that was called Communism and it just didn't work again. That was an answer that actually agreed with. There was some people who said that's not the answer you given a Democratic primary. That it's an answer you would give if you were in the actual campaign against president trump but that was the one that really resonated with me with. Yeah okay. Honest answer on that part of Ari Fleischer on twitter last night tweet aways going on saying that. He couldn't fathom how the whole Party that nobody in the party when they're asking their capitalism everybody's there with the exception maybe of Mayor Bloomberg I think Amy Klobuchar also said that she was a capitalist of believe in capitalism. But you know you know how everybody gone mad that this is just not what it is but by the way I mean Look Bernie. Sanders calls himself a socialist. Whether it's a democratic socialist or whatever you WANNA call the it's strange led a little bit of circa firing squad feel for me or someone said a gun fight in a lifeboat or something like that. But but what what I'm coming to realize is that Bernie is in the stage. Yep He's got grassroots. He Does Sport. And these people are gonNA turn out and if he just keeps winning and winning and winning. I don't know what you do. There's a difference between the democratic establishment and millions of of Democrats. That are voting for him. And you can't just say no. We don't like the way this looks so we don't like our prospect and who knows what the prospects really are. You never knew. He may have some people think he might one four years ago if he so. I've always been a Bernie Bro and BRO now. Well no Birdie Bro. If I had to pick I'm not sure at this point I immediately came in and I said to you this morning. What else you got sick Bernie because you think that makes it better or ascribe any type of weird and just let's is beyond her hand in a while snow but seriously that's the sixty came up. You got anything got anybody else you got it. We're shoulders Howard Schultz. Is he done? He's definitely divall Patrick and he come back and Bloomberg's campaign seemed to acknowledge his difficulty with this last night. I think he got better at the end to answer at the end was a fairly strong answer. His campaign said he's just warming. I mean the. What's the the reason the night? By the way do you know Neil Patel? We've had on the program. The rights that that Bloomberg is the gap that Bloomberg's performance the gap between an influence or marketing campaign and putting an actual product in front of reviewers. And I thought that captured beautifully Ashley happening here and I think it is online he. He's you know if you had sixty billion dollars you really do start thinking that you just might us man and when it comes to the woman whatever you want to say it but when it comes down when when the rubber meets the road you really do have to debate and you need to be good and fast and strong and all those things none of which and I started feeling. Sorry for he did. Have everybody coming after is not something we really happy. Start Feeling. Sorry for him. But there's an old adage in its most Jewish things don't ever feel sorry for someone has a Gulfstream jet. You just never never feel sorry for someone who has a g six V you just. Shouldn't I mean there could be things that happened? They can always fall. But you still felt sorry for. It'd be because as you know and I've said it a million times. Maybe he's not a great debater isn't clearly but if you look at what? I what he did in the city in the public sector and then the private sector. We're different we're different on what we think is competent and a nanny. State to me is competent. Well no no. Other major initiatives took it was. Well run under Giuliani to look at him now than in your eyes. I mean you think he's like a lunatic. Look let's just leave it at Bernie Bro- stick with that. He's in the center. He's at fifty eight percent. Something on League dictums on CNBC earlier. This week I don't know if it was yesterday the day before and I guess. He said that he thinks. Bernie Sanders bigger threat to the markets. Then they'd run a virus and your lights night's performance. You wonder if there's anybody who's GonNa stop along the way but the market and took the Marlboros. Go UP THE STRONGER. He gets because he's a could be another McGovern. I'm not I'm not coming out of my no. Well we know what you think but put the markets aside. Let's Talk Real Economy Bernie Sanders. Wins Your CEO in America. You're see on America's because this to me is really to one thing Mike Bloomberg was right about okay. Bernie can't win but no I'm saying if Bernie wins I think that every ceiling American not to Bernie San monkeys flat out of my reread to leave the set. Look by the way people can carry where he says the same thing trump right and even even two months before he won. People would don't really you don't really think that's the same thing. No I'm not saying it's health your honest opinion of what is Bernie's if you had to bet all your money on what. What are his chances for winning? Is it twenty five percent? Do you think it's that high winning? In general winning in the general we in the journey and the general third no more than you think a third see. I think that's I don't think it's a third what was weird less gets overwhelming at all. No I think it's I think in becomes very what would there have to be more. I don't know what would happen. He'd have to be the nominee and something else anyway. Joining us right now with reaction to last night's debate pollster and political strategist frank. Bunce FRANK WANNA get your action to all of this. I think the whole night was challenging moment. I WANNA take you back to two thousand twelve when Rick. Perry was moving three or four points a week in the race against Mitt Romney. He participates in the first debate. And he's destroyed and it ends his candidacy. I think Mike Bloomberg we will look back at this debate potentially as the beginning of the end because he did not come across as prepared and more importantly I don't think captured the tone of the audience that he doesn't understand that there are more women than men who are Democrats that they don't like this Aggressive behavior and I don't think in Blooberg defense of capitalism against socialism. He doesn't realize that. So many Democrats prioritize socialism over Frank. I WanNa ask you about the preparedness issue. Because he I know we'll say he only got into this campaign ten ten weeks ago but he's been preparing for this for a very very long time. How could he not have been more prepared? Well and what were the right answers to some of these questions? Well I so I want viewers to know that I did work for Bloomberg in two thousand one and back then. He doesn't like language. He doesn't like debates he doesn't like that. Kinda give and take that's not what he's about. The problem is it's what the Democrats are about and he should've known that these candidates who are going to take him on frankly. I don't know what the response is for the challenge about the nondisclosure agreements in terms of capitalism vs socialism. He's GonNa Remember. You should know that. The average Democrat is working class. The average Democrat is middle income and having a capitalism vs socialism debate among the average Democrat. Bloomberg's GonNa lose that and Bernie Sanders and the reason why is leading right now is going to win that contest. Frank do you believe Bloomberg will follow through on his promise to spend another half a billion dollars defeating Donald Trump on one of these people that just you know completely eviscerated him last night. Have you think once he realized you just said maybe it's the beginning of the end of his candidacy? He sees it. He's not going to be the candidate. Will he follow through and spend another four or five hundred million dollars on somebody else well? He's not done because we still have a South Carolina debate coming up and Super Tuesday. If you look at the state by state polling Bloomberg is actually taken the lead in some of these states doesn't if you said that it's probably the beginning of the end it was. Do you believe he will follow through and spend his money to defeat? Donald Trump by backing Bernie sanders or the eventual nominee is. Do you believe he'll do? I think Mike Bloomberg will have a problem backing Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren because he simply disagrees with them ideologically on their economic last night's performance by Elizabeth. Warren puts her back in the game in a way that she might not have been just Twenty four hours ago. I'm going to surprise you but my answer is no because I don't like Democrats attacking Democrats they want you to focus on donald trump but that's what Bernie Sanders has been doing so successfully and he seems to be the runner. And that's exactly. Why is the Front runner and Elizabeth Warren Attacking Buddha judge as well as Bloomberg? I don't think that sits well with the average Democrat. I'm will tell you know. Sandra has been attacking his his competitors in this race. No He's been speaking clearly and loudly and pronounce way in a position that for the center of the Democratic Party. And they like what he's saying and he is going to trump more than the rest of them I think last night was a good good debate night for Sanders because he clearly articulated a point of view that none of you may agree with but for the center of the Democratic Party. Remember this is not the center of America for the center of the Democratic Party Bernie. Sanders speaks to them. He's emotional he's passionate and it's the reason why he's now the front runner and what we got to run but what happens if if he is the nominee against trump given what you know given what okay. What are your odds for the first time ever ever on a TV program? I will say that trump will have the narrowest of advantages narrowest inch. Yes that's all that's all this going to be a brawl. It's going to be ugly selection ever and even though centers outside the mainstream the press will protect him. The media does not want trump elected. It will come down to election day. Okay Frank clots with an interesting perspective. Great to see this morning. Thank you thank

I. A. surreptitiously bought this corporation established and functioning in Switzerland their clients included India included Pakistan included Iran included many clients in the European Union it did not manage to break through the eastern block because Russia and China suspected the company's ties to the west end is turns out they were correct so for decades throughout the nineteen sixties that nineteen seventies through the nineteen eighties and then all as they were declining in the nineties and then through the two thousand and twenty ten the C. I. A. had control and it with any any any incorrect information that was sent between allies or enemies over devices that were owned by cryptic older provided by crypto AG we had Intel on that that's nice yeah so that's pretty crazy seven were just now finding out about it because of course the the the company has no more relevance in the modern age and the Swiss government announced on Tuesday that they are now going to be investigating the ties between this corporation and the CIA and they revoke their expert license so particular reason why more because apparently Swiss cover did know about what we were we were doing so yeah I mean if anything unless you know that the CIA is very successful yeah I don't know of I mean a horizontal line on me well I mean the the spine and everybody that's that's what they were that the FBI spies on you the CIA spies and everybody else okay that that's the the deliberate that delineation of tasks some but what you tell me some is looking at me amber is looking a year even though I'm not interesting I mean there there we live in Orwellian times doctorate I mean there are cameras that follow you around there's a G.
