out I don't know how this works I was in Facebook jail for three days then it was three days now it's seven I mean what do they do can anybody answer that question I don't know is is if I get it again is it the fourteen days at some point of his bar you they say you've just committed to many what do they call it a community standard violations and you're out I don't know I don't use Facebook for one reason and one reason only and that is to get information out I look at it just like this radio show it's a it's a it's a function of this radio show it's about going all over around the American Pravda media so what I'm posting things on Facebook I am posting things that you need to know about because you're not gonna get any place else now you can dig into the homework I do need to find a minor but many people have time for that so I'm kinda like the up compilation if you will of information that we talk about here that you just don't dig out on your own and I can't tell you how many people told me I don't know about that until I heard you talking about it was true because that's what we do here we do the what works so you don't have to tell us right now Facebook they weren't expecting on Facebook and their own ex on Facebook and all right now on Twitter say roan axe on on Twitter same as on the other what's called it's a mirror page not I don't be confusing here but their own expenses because they run and then a space and then the axe tutors just their own acts all together so get over there and check it out today ensure that stuff that's what this is about you know the the fact that people have not been receiving accurate information is in large part why were were at right now the communist revolution in flames in the streets and everybody that's an elected official pretty much everybody pretty much everybody's afraid to call it what it is they either don't know what it is can articulate it or they can and they're afraid of it and they don't see that it would be productive for them to talk about it because of the dead they get in trouble they got pastors are afraid to talk about it if they talk about it accurate terms of much of their their flock of a wall he's he's bad now for black people because you can see critic black lives matter or the excuses that's not what we do here where to bring your Christ well I haven't I I don't know I'm just guessing I'm thinking the Christ might want you to bring people's awareness that Satan is in the streets right now that's what the socialist revolutions all about Satan is on the streets right now I think that's part of your job to try and I don't know why or how or who or when but I know that we must stand against it if any nation ticket pick all the nations in history of mankind the very nation was based I'm Christian teaching it's this one every four other was a straight of question one way or another they say that they weren't they wore and every church is where the revolution fell out of American revolution every school from Georgetown to Harvard Princeton these were all all Christian schools at the outset not anymore not anymore yeah the demonic forces have had their way and fifths does not get any better right now and worse now here's a real piece of work Mitch McConnell he I don't really talk much about him on in like invoking his name but he says he is okay with him F. for removing Confederate names from military bases what signal is that what signal is that that was a bad signal yeah for panic S. named after Confederate general this is insane we're we're rewriting not just American history we're renaming everything in the image of black lives matter this is horrific Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell C. just saying that scares people I guess if that triggers them in that war will more you can say that I I could never say that that sounds horrible it sounds like you're against black lives matter well I am I personally am you should be too but this matter is not about black people well it's about black people in that they're running it but some some black people are running it so what about black people because it was they would have been up in the streets all over south side Chicago about the but people get murdered their brother black people every single day seven right now no I don't care and then the obvious well why would they not be coming out against the abortion clinics that are strategically placed in their black neighborhoods mmhm yeah that Malcolm of my people Mitch McConnell stated Tuesday but he's okay with removing the names of Confederate leaders from US military bases he's breaking with president Donald Trump on the issue while I can only speak for myself on this issue no match when you talk when you flap your jaws you wind **** what you're doing is you're speaking for all the Republicans in the Senate who haven't stood up and stood against you this is if it's appropriate to take another look at these our names I'm okay with that whatever is ultimately decided I don't have a problem with now he wants to get rid of Fort Bragg Fort Hood all of it for bending but here's the deal if you look at what these are this this the confederacy was will the south they're army they're generals all that stuff fighting against the north this is American history that's what this is about and because they were defending the position of the south and coming out to keep slaves in the states are everybody's trying to vilify them you don't have to rip down statues and take down names of military bases because of that and these people have fought for because they believed in as wrong as it was and we the thinking one in that one we won and that one if you're looking at the military law the military campaign that whether you think they are actually doing what to say they were doing whatever but this is absurd and for Mitch to not stand up in for the entire nation say this is absurd another enough or not renaming anything if I have any saying that I'm going to meet with Donald Trump or when trying to find a way to stand against us and take down anybody that would do you face any of our American heritage for better.

"We are living in an Orwellian society in two thousand twenty we're seeing control Marxists anarchists in Seattle the same thing that took place in World War two you have to remember one thing that all the European countries surrendered to the **** socialists except one country that was Britain Churchill said no way the royal family wanted to make a deal with Hitler not Churchill and remember the name of the **** party through the official name is the socialist workers party although they are really Marxists whereby the workers on the means of production they believe the capitalists are only there to exploit the working class and while Hitler was initially a Marxist he changed to more of a socialist type of mentality when he realized he needed the corporations to his very wicked and goal now I will tell you that today there's an assault on speech are sold on fox sold on history and we all we already knew there's assault on pleasure let's get different examples right assault on speech we just gave an example senator Tom cotton in The New York Times he came out with an editorial that said look there may be times when it may be worth were you may have to call in the National Guard and the military if thought things get to follow police are not set up to handle what happened he was excoriated the New York times writers love to hide behind the first amendment rightfully so reduce speech in this country yet not freedom of speech for the senator and certainly not freedom of speech for the paper and he ended up getting the editor to resign now that's an assault on a person's livelihood because they disagree are we show sensitive in twenty twenty that if you disagree with someone that it instead of just saying what I disagree with you and make your case then you have to jump up and down like a three year old said demand he be fired I demand we ruled his life well it seems to me that that's exactly where we are that these are three rolls these are softies this is all the product of the millennial and Gen was the Gen Z. generation going back to just before the turn of the century before two thousand everybody's entitled everybody's a winner but you can't call out someone you can't say what you did is wrong no no no you have to just give them a time out we've created a bunch of softy pansy **** another example an assault on speech former fed chair Janet Yellen not a looker by the way but there is a professor at the university of Chicago who edits a jerk because he called the journal of political economy he supports the black lives matter movement by the way but he criticized the looting and riots in calling the D. fun the police movement ridiculous well Janet Yellen the former head of the federal reserve she said that his comments were troubling it would be appropriate for the university of Chicago that is the publisher of that magazine to remove him as editor what happened to freedom of speech because all of a sudden you have a contrary view but I find it amazing D. gone with the wind was removed from H. B. O. Max it was removed because of certain stereotypes forgetting the fact that one of the actresses won an Oscar as a an actress in the role for her performance seventy three percent of black people told love gone with the wind no that's not my favorite movie I mean it's it's certainly a very people say it's one of those popular movies ever made not my thing but all of a sudden you're going to remove it meanwhile Amazon went into one of the top selling movies people figured you know what if I can't get it speechless for coming I am going to buy it is that not absurd HBO came out and said no we're going to put it back but we're going to put up more culturally appropriate historical connotations that a little disclaimer headed do we really need that I mean H. E. R. we're seeing professors at the university level that are making comments and now students and celebrities are saying they should be fired for their opinions we're seeing now that Confederate statues need to be removed that's part of our history like it or not military bases in the south Fort Bragg Fort Hood I didn't realize they were named after Confederate generals never know I associate them more with the fact that we've sent some of our best man to World War two into Afghanistan Iraq from these bases that's what I think of those bases no now David Petraeus comes out for general David Petraeus coming out saying we should change the names that its virtues basically we have to write rename all these different basis it's unacceptable this is the same guy I remind you who let his mistress in all the secrets of the United States with a classified clearance he's lucky he didn't go to jail we were seeing just the ridiculousness people saying George Washington Thomas Jefferson statues need to come down Nancy Pelosi wants eleven Confederate statues removed from the capitol now if you disagree with black lives matter not in terms of the concept but the black lives matter movement and when I see movement I mean the organization or loose organization which does have some militaristic elements to it so you can on one hand say at what price matter but I was sort of I say all lives matter I'm a racist shop please your really insulting yourself but if you say look yeah black lives matter of course there should be an end to racism and and there should be and entice semitism and let's not forget loads of anti semitism nobody says book all of a sudden if somebody says look I believe black lives matter but the writing the looting that some people in the black lives matter doing some acceptable well now all the sudden you're called a racist country group lady antebellum changes their name to lady Hey have you ever heard of something so stupid that now all of a sudden this movement that just the name could offend people could put them in a safe space now as far as I know lady antebellum never had any racist songs are pretty popular amongst white and blacks country music's not my thing but my understanding is they're pretty popular I mean I even told them for a few of their songs the well regarded well liked so a lot of records the water play on radio stations but now they're changing their name the lady a with members saying the regretful embarrassed for not taking into consideration the words association with slavery antebellum just means before war that's what I'm developing so in this case before civil war that doesn't mean that they encouraged slavery doesn't mean his group believed in slavery but now you gotta change your name how absurd how ridiculous stupid does everybody look this craze but all of a sudden you gotta give money we're saying companies should we're gonna give money to solve the race problem here's a better idea we don't even know where this is going to go to go to al Sharpton good luck what I said on a Twitter tweet went on a tweet when Google came out and said they're going to donate thirty seven billion dollars to fight racism fine that's what I want for my reply was better than just spending the thirty seven million why don't you just take that thirty seven million and why don't you commit to opening thirty seven.

"Protests I asked secretary gates if what he saw on June first was an abuse of presidential power I don't know that it whether it was an abuse of presidential power it certainly was in my view misguided and a bad mistake in terms of pushing away peaceful protesters hi I do agree with my former colleagues opposition to the invocation of the insurrection act I think that would have been a mistake obviously the president has the authority to use it but it would have been very analyze because of the demonstrations about racial injustice that are happening right now the Pentagon is considering changing the name of several military bases that bear the name of Confederate generals Fort Bragg Fort Hood Fort Benning just to name a few do you think it's time to change those names I think so yeah I did see that the president has come out against any change I agree with the secretary of defense Caspar and the secretary of the army Ryan McCarthy that we should entertain changing the names of those of those military facilities I do it's always puzzled me we don't have a fort he Leslie says grant or or a warrant of military facility name for an African American medal of honor recipient and and I think what what we see today is a movement to remove the symbols of the confederacy that celebrate it as opposed to an understanding it and remembering in retrospect do you wish that you had pushed to change those names when you were secretary we were involved in two active wars when I was secretary of defense I just think that I think that there comes a moment in time when things become possible and people ought to seize that moment when it presents itself I think this is such a moment a man you will know marine corps general and former secretary of defense Jim Mattis wrote this in a statement released last week Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people does not even pretend to try instead he tries to divide us do you agree with that statement I think it's so just a reality that that this president has not seen it as one of his priority is to try and bring people together either in general or in response to the terrible events whether it's the pandemic or the response to to George Floyd's death I it's hard to disagree that this president is a divider is not the only one in American history but he certainly has taken and I think to a level that we haven't seen in quite a long time so I in that respect I agree with Jim Mattis do you think Donald Trump has the judgment necessary to serve another four years as president well I think I think that there's a distinction to be made between what he says and what he does for example I was I supported his outreach to Kim Jong un in North Korea everything else we tried for the preceding quarter of a century had not worked I support it is challenging and the Chinese the Chinese have gotten away with a lot of things for a lot of years so there are important things at least in the realm that I'm familiar with where where I have thought he and his initiatives at least were the right things to do they haven't proved to be particularly successful but at the same time he has weakened our alliances which I think is a critically important element of American national security you know there are there are puts on their tanks I think that we are in a weaker position in the world today than we were three years ago I've already asked you about president trump's suitability for the presidency I'd like to use the moment to ask about Joe Biden would you publicly endorsed him what I will say is hi I wrote in my book Judy in two thousand fourteen that I thought Joe Biden had been wrong on almost every major foreign policy issue over the preceding forty years I wrote on the same page they'll that I've regarded Joe Biden as a man of great integrity a very decent human being somebody that if you had a personal problem or an issue Joe Biden would be there to help you so although I've got a lot of policy disagreements with the former vice president he is a decent person is decency of great importance though in this moment I think that what the country needs is somebody who will try to bring us together former secretary of defense Robert gates he expands on those thoughts and many more in our conversation more of what you will hear on Monday his new book is titled exercise of power American failures successes and a new path in the post Cold War world Russia's president Vladimir Putin declared a state of emergency in a remote arctic region of Russia in that region twenty thousand tons of diesel fuel spilled into a river two weeks ago here's NPR's Lucy and Kim the accident took place at a power plant and no real sick an industrial city north of the Arctic Circle almost two thousand miles from Moscow where than six hundred workers are now collecting the mixture of oil and water the type of criminal scare a local environmentalist says it could take decades for the delicate arctic ecosystem to recover the KFC flourishing at the national level she told the Reduxio YouTube channel that talks since could enter the food chain affecting not only aquatic life also the reindeer population for employees of the power plant had been arrested on charges of violating environmental regulations connection will check with the middle name okay on Thursday a spokeswoman for Russia's investigative committee said on state TV that no real six mayor was being charged with negligence the accident has been compared to the nineteen eighty nine Exxon Valdez spill the one big difference is that the diesel fuel has not reached the open seat today to check out was the chief operating officer of Norilsk nickel which owns the fuel tank he blames global warming for thawing permafrost beneath it and dramatic happen with the temperature right and you can actually look at the impact on the ground in a call with investors this

racial disparities in health care and offering school choice on policing Republicans in Congress are working on a plan a policy response to the legislation that house democratic leaders have put forward I'm and it's not clear whether president trump will endorse what the Republicans come up with he talked about this executive order but will probably need to see it to understand what he means by encouraging professional standards or supporting pilot programs for social workers at to go out with police but he did make it clear that he does not think there is a problem with systemic racism in police departments he described it as a few bad apples and more broadly on matters of race trump said that you can't heal the country by labeling millions of people racist and he also then said that solving these problems would go quickly quickly and easily so this discussion and dollars happen before a campaign fundraiser he's officially back on the trail and his first rally since the

although Oklahoma has a relatively low case load with corona virus the president's rally is going to be in this arena that holds nineteen thousand people and in fact at the campaign is asking people

from the area chairman of the joint chiefs of staff general mark Milley walked with him and now says he shouldn't have my presence in that moment and in that environment eight a perception of the military involved in domestic politics as a commissioned uniformed officer it was a mistake that I've learned from general Milley made those comments in a recorded commencement address to the national defense university yesterday Robert gates was the secretary of defense from two thousand six to two thousand eleven I talked with secretary gates yesterday ten days after president trump suggested

yesterday the highest ranking officer in the country apologized for being part of president trump's entourage on June first as he walked across from the White House to a nearby church for a photo op this was after security forces have used chemical irritants to clear out peaceful protesters from the area chairman of the joint chiefs of staff general mark Milley walked with him and now says he shouldn't have my presence in that moment and in that environment eight a perception of the military involved in domestic politics as a commissioned uniformed officer it was a mistake that I've learned from general Milley made those comments in a recorded commencement address to the national defense university yesterday Robert gates was the secretary of defense from two thousand six to two thousand eleven I talked with secretary gates yesterday ten days after president trump suggested using the insurrection act which would have let him use the full military not just the National Guard to respond to protests I asked secretary gates if what he saw on June first was an abuse of presidential power I don't know that it whether it was an abuse of presidential power it certainly was in my view misguided and a bad mistake in terms of pushing away peaceful protesters hi I do agree with my former colleagues opposition to the invocation of the insurrection act I think that would have been a mistake obviously the president has the authority to use it but it would have been very analyze because of the demonstrations about racial injustice that are happening right now the Pentagon is considering changing the name of several military bases that bear the name of Confederate generals Fort Bragg Fort Hood Fort Benning just to name a few do you think it's time to change those names I think so yeah I did see that the president has come out against any change I agree with the secretary of defense Caspar and the secretary of the army Ryan McCarthy that we should entertain changing the names of those of those military facilities I do it's always puzzled me we don't have a fort Ulysses S. grant or or the war of military facility name for an African American medal of honor recipient and and I think what what we see today is a movement to remove the symbols of the confederacy that celebrate it as opposed to an understanding it and remembering it in retrospect do you wish that you had pushed to change those names when you were secretary we were involved in two active wars when I was secretary of defense I just think that I think that there comes a moment in time when things become possible and people ought to seize that moment when it presents itself I think this is such a moment a man you will know marine corps general and former secretary of defense Jim Mattis wrote this in a statement released last week Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people does not even pretend to try instead he tries to divide us do you agree with that statement I think it's just a reality that that this president has not seen it as one of his priority is to try and bring people together either in general or in response to the terrible events whether it's the pandemic or the response to to George Floyd's death I it's hard to disagree that this president is a divider he's not the only one in American history but he certainly has taken it I think to a level that we haven't seen in quite a long time.

"Of debating what all that means that the NASCAR move was interesting because of the the NASCAR fan base also tends to be the president so much of the president's fanbase as well most NASCAR followers which likely I don't think there's any secret most of them would not be supporters of president trump not not all but yes if we were to take a look at our van diagram to be a large across over so Bob Costantini the reason I I kind of wanted to transition into that because there's been this conversation about changing the names of some of the military brazen bases Fort Bragg Fort Hood that were named after retired army officers others right and and you know and I guess mark esper our defense secretary says that we can look at that trump says no way no way and now let me give you the names Braxton Bragg of Robert E. Lee of course we know George Pickett self Amos Confederate general John bell hood all of them have not forks named after them in the south this was of of those who do you know what pattern of the army they're trying to specially to expand in the south in the but a hundred years ago or so and to honor and again to get local support often times these bases were named after Confederate generals as a total of ten I believe that have been suggested need to be renamed time interestingly enough even for top north or other places have you know Robert E. Lee street in them or you know George Pickett lane or things like that there's a lot of a lot of bases have with internally their street names are named after Confederate generals as well so mark as per the year end and and obviously in light of the torch for killing and the protests and so much going on in the country right now so much being discussed up markets where the defense secretary expressed willingness to marine name does basis and the president tweeting yesterday so I'll quote you although these monumental very powerful bases that have become part of a great American heritage and history of winning victory in freedom United States of America trained and deployed our heroes on these hallowed grounds therefore my administration will not even consider the renaming of these magnificent inflatable military installations so the the president making clear yeah and and apparently those those damn good experts say it's up to the secretary army to get the process rolling if they want to rename these bases now for the secretary of the army and you read that that gives presidential tweets which were handed out by the way as official statements before yesterday's briefing as the official statement of those exact words but secretary ought be harming you want keep your job you probably aren't going to necessarily go against what the president wants Dembele to clear how he feels about that and again it's a matter of heroes of faith in the south conservative base down there are not trying to make sure that these up these Confederate generals who are revered by some people in the south that that it doesn't upset that kind of apple cart it is doubling down on the brand I guess I love customer yeah go ahead hello Chris up the president has the right has not directly responded to ask and also the general Milley today by the way who said he should not have participated in that a walk over to up the Lafayette park well we can go up Mar couple Mondays ago Oceanside whereby the protesters have been cleared and the president can gauge the photo opportunity but the Bible there the president has responded to Millie who today told a graduating class military university that he should not have participated in that that's against having in any political military so you you get the sense that it some point the president this president in particular is just going to have to the goals I don't know if the the I guess in terms ballistic or whatever about what the people he actually has hired are saying about some things he has done and things he doesn't want done we may see a meltdown and I can't wait because one thing we know meltdowns are always public and on Twitter have a front row seats Alyssa Bob Costantini Westwood one's or our corresponded Bob great work thank you so much really great work could talk **** we'll tell you just a few moments while holding a rally on June thirteenth in Tulsa seems to be again on brand for this president that is in just a moment it's Chris Merrill internship prank on KGO eight ten the chip Franklin show with Chris Meryl filling in on KGO eight ten.

Lee statue in Richmond and then the big announcement from NASCAR yesterday about the ban on Confederate flags in all of their events there's so many things happening this is a massive groundswell very quickly cheering on these things in the daytime but now suddenly they're all just starting to fall down but the White House making it very clear the president's not going along with this other element besides if you want to see the history component that many people a folk with this late a lot of times they say free speech and we have a right to say things are display things that make other people uncomfortable is that some of the argument as well saying you may not like it but don't infer you my right to to fly the flag the stars and bars or or have these have these monuments you know I think it is when it comes to doing different symbols I think from the perspective of the White House on the basis they did they took an interesting argument that yesterday the White House press secretary reading the president's tweets that indeed faces have become part of the American heritage and history of winning victory and freedom well very quickly after the president tweeted batch a critic he jumped on that thank you they're named after Confederate leaders and soldiers who lost they were on the wrong side of the civil war and the White House is making the point that that for that yeah hundreds of thousands if not more soldiers that have come through the faces they work there they serve there and then they went overseas the more part of the great American heritage of winning I Kaylee McEntee press secretary says that with we will be installed change to a soldier who that was the last place they were before serving overseas from losing their lives if you're now telling them that the place they had been was right that it will end at their ABC news White House correspondent Karen Travers thank you thank you and we are asking this morning on the social media Twitter and Facebook what should be done with those Confederate monuments and statues stand right now on Twitter most people say they should be left alone and or put in a museum Richard says leave it it's got a reminder so we never go back Tom says selling to the highest bidder Greg says we need to be putting up statues not taking them down and grant rates and we don't have statues for any other enemy of the USA that we defeated you can continue to weigh in on both those platforms a twenty nine right now the driver.

Max it is and I I can't imagine they're going to keep this I mean that's ridiculous it's a movie the theory is that it glorifies slavery it's a movie it was a movie that was made in a time where our attitudes were different on and there's so much more to the movie than slavery I mean it's just I think this is when it starts to become absolutely ridiculous what you know is interesting when I first saw gone with the wind I looked at it in three perspectives you sure the role that was played by the lead actor there I'm trying to remember his name right here with the big ears yeah rip out there what was his name that's right right now I swear to god you with menopause until you having chill Biden Joe Biden is but anyway he he was a profiteer remember him in his partner they will profiteers they supported no side if they could sell if they could sell weapons and supplies to the north to destroy the south where they were it didn't matter if they could sell it to the shop they would judge profiteers then you had the the lady servant I think won an Oscar for that young black but she would see old characterization of light like many right what you would see on and Jemima the engine light came back and then you had Sherman whose troops just burned everything so the union general Sherman who by the way as a person it was a hot mess this guy beat up his wife he was an alcoholic he burn everything down he killed everything in its path the war was over and you know what he said to his troops I mean the war was over everybody get let's bomb Charleston South Carolina on we going home and they bring in Charleston South Carolina so to me it was a better way of learning history then I had actually read in the books because I can see the profiteers who couldn't care who want just as long as they made their money this stereo type of blacks but also the union you wore his cycle really brutal and they take part everything down they kill they rape they pillage and even killed on their way going home when the war was over the other thing about this is that these a lot of these statues are works of art and you know you I'm the first person to say I can't stand it when you have all these weird looking art that's just like a you know nonsensical but when you have beautiful pieces of art they it's bronzes and statues and things like that that's that's another issue to think about I just don't think that that it needs to be destroyed and thrown in the river like they were doing over in the U. K. but I think that it's definitely a great talking point it's an amazing history lesson right there in the flesh and just put up a and an addition to the plaque what about that it's a little bit more when I started the guardian angels in Tokyo one of the Tokyo guardian angels took me to the military cemetery where all the Japanese soldiers and naval people were buried and this cemeteries are very small in a way it's not like America very small but you know that our leaders when they visited Tokyo would never go visit the red Chinese obviously not south Koreans because you know the Japanese with ruthless but I at least had an opportunity to see it for myself and senator that.

"First we have Taylor joining us here soon there is Butler joining us in the second hour a lot of NFL chatter we got two bad **** outside from ma Fort Bragg Fort Hood seminal Fort Hood I think for like two guys going to Afghanistan on Saturday hanging out outside don't really yeah I know that had not been since Saturday to catch and chat with him one guys and grace and beauty of the guy's name very chilly outside got very hot this box though we we had a hot boxes sock but there for a second there great to be back it side to chat about the world Susan first break happy baseball's over pretty pumped up about it I mean I understand that people like it I just understand why I think his work from a city where the baseball team is just a bunch of crooks crooks steal from people but we're also from seed has a Pittsburgh Steelers and right now the Pittsburgh Steelers are only one point underdogs Indianapolis Colts this week and it started out as the Steelers will one and a half point favorites over the Indianapolis Colts this weekend off and all I don't know much at all I don't think I know much about much but when it comes as football thing I feel like I know a little bit a little bit I feel like I've been pretty hot with my that's that's far if I bring up the hammer not granted the hammer lost one other people made bets for but whenever I hold that hammer much like that dude who has a hammer in those movies for floor of the god of thunder yeah when I swing that thing normal it's pretty accurate I would hammer the Indianapolis Colts right now at minus one against Pittsburgh Steelers this weekend as hard as I possibly could offend dole right now I if I if you're sitting at home you're at the office whatever your go to sports book dot vandal dot com find that game it just came of course because that's gonna go up probably to three to four if I had to guess because people in Pittsburgh have zero respect for the Annapolis quotes but anybody who's watched a single football game this year knows that that's those team is in trouble I think they don't object donis is with her know Ben Roethlisberger they're not playing quack thank you Raj Hodges which we all don't love I just think this cocinas get a lot of respect and for us that's good because we can profit off of it right now federal content night the Arizona Cardinals take on the San Francisco forty Niners ten half point dogs this is going to be a game where once again I said this on get up in San Francisco forty Niners fans have been coming after me hard I mean they have been coming after me very very hard for stating the obvious fact that the service is the forty Niners have had the second easiest schedule in the NFC thus far they haven't really played anybody yes the defense has been absolutely dominate yes Nick Bosa has been and defensive MVP candid I watch a video yesterday of George kill miked up where he's literally screaming and share my hands years on the sideline sign him to a twenty year deal now talking about about George heroes like signed him to a twenty year deal right now he is a game changer a game Recker I completely appreciate and respect that but they haven't played anybody yet so to say that the best team in the NFC after what happened last year even though Jimmy Gezer disservice actors ACL I think it's a bit aggressive this team hasn't really had to take on anybody of importance yet although they have been absolutely suffocating on the differences on the ball and awesome to watch that a manual Sanders I like when they play football I think tonight there's on the cardinals ten a half point dogs at home with a record of forty twenty six you want to get to spread as a home dog which means absolutely nothing by the way that's just like a roulette table when you walk up in a show you what all the ball has landed on last twenty times that has no verification or what's going to happen this next coming spend but a short week there's all cardinals have gotten big critical calamari AQ Shipley is run the shot a run the show and arts center for the cardinals if that defense can figure anything out I think this to be a low scoring game tonight between the cardinals in the Niners and I think the cardinals can cover I am not I'm not bringing the hammer out because I don't know enough about these two teams I don't think either of them know enough about it themselves yet to figure it out I mean a card or just a few weeks ago were dead then I got hot they figured out calamari is becoming a full quarter back so I'm not gonna swing the hammer they just got Emmanuel Sanders I think they'll use him well caution has a genius George Kendall was a game changer that defense is awesome but I'm not sure what any of us know anything about this Niners team outside of San Francisco I soon their fan base in Santa Clara knows about I'm not gonna swing the hammer on him but I like this game the night for both teams I like what's going to happen I think it should be a low scoring game and I think ultimately that I was going to win but I think the cardinals you'll be impressed would you would use the question mark right I mean he's playing well but you don't know if he they're gonna go out there and score fifty points you don't know if they're gonna go there and score twenty four display shut down the front just in Jimmy Jeez like damn near perfect as a starter everybody says that the weakness of the San Francisco forty Niners team is Jimmy G. that is a mind blower to me that guy just wins games is what it feels like alright John Lynch couch and hand put him in position to do that Jimmy G. does is when and date porn stars and things along that of that nature but for me I like the Niners team I just don't think the flight anybody yet and I don't think the cardinals really know who they are yet but that could be a big test for them WVU Baylor W. views an underdog by eighteen and a half points or something like that hilarious absolutely hilarious let's go mountaineers get a chance call game for first time those of the school that I went to go to try to put on for my old teammates I really like what the Baylor bears do though I like coach Matt role I like Charlie brewer I'm a big fan of them I like coach Neal brown W. view as well but this Baylor team if you haven't got a chance to watch him yeah they're the only done undefeated team left in the big twelve only undefeated team left I got my first game I ever got to call as the Baylor bears respects tech in the Texas shootout last year fun team to watch play it may seem to be a very disciplined team in a team that is ready to jump off of a bridge if cultural tells him to do so and I like everything about that should be a fun one tonight I have a question yeah buddy do we know if Jaylen hurts was in the gym after losing that last game what do you say that was just a very weak he posted Instagram of himself same day the game right after the game is back in the gym working out I was curious what anyone saw or jail hurts is a gym rat right that's what everybody says about him I just watched like eight hundred pounds he's been this way since everywhere Oklahoma they posted a video of him squatting with the entire team around like the first week you got there he's a now I think is that as a strength coach I I believe our lives a limpid lifter some along those lines that Kansas state win over Oklahoma was a mind blower to me on game day I said Oakland was gonna bury Kansas state so I mean I I really want to work there for them and they lost which is tough for me but I'd assume he's in our work it out I'd assume we can rallies turning things around and I would assume that this Baylor team is very comfortable in a spot that they're at right now being the only undefeated left in the big twelve because the way the college football players not a drug to feeling when these power five conferences your pa your make playoffs you Baylor bears just couple years go on like two games two games after they stop the former culture or Briles not good things that were happening under his watch not good at all there's a statue of RG three outside I mean wasn't that long ago that this team was very good in college football disappeared Matt rules got him back good for the bears also good for Baker Mayfield I'm a form of site get it exactly right yesterday at one eighteen PM after walking out of a press conference after telling a reporter that was the dumbest question he's ever been asked which by the way is somebody who is not spoken to the media that much believe it or not a punter is not somebody that the media seats after games no matter how far I put a ball it's not like Hey we want to talk to Pat McAfee today Baker Mayfield has to be put in front of the media basically every day it feels like he is having to talk to the media in the way they have it set up is very interesting you just standing it's like a scrum almost it's not like there's any difference where he's sitting up front and they're sitting away from and there's no separation there kinda in his grill almost and I I think the set up of that was almost a recipe for disaster if anything goes wrong anyways because Baker I mean what's argue he's a combative human the reason why he is where he is because he's a combative human the reason why he has gotten to the Heisman talk the reason why I became the number one pick in the draft after being a walk on twice the reason why is gone or uses because he's a combat of individual that's what is chip on his shoulder so whatever you have them standing like inches away from reporters who reporter sometimes by the waiting to start popping awful that there's something in there a little bit more important in the game I mean that's kind of a classic sports reporter ammo is almost like yeah we matter just much as you do which I think they can argue why I think without the media the game is the game he was asked a couple different things about the fourth in sixteen play call that whole thing what we want your ball back Tom Brady said which makes sense but yeah then if there are some more were you happy with the drive that was a drive that they did they did not pick up a first down they did not score when they need it so Baker former right reason says that's the dumbest question I've ever heard we didn't score.
