Will Sidney Powell Get Away With Being a Grand Jury No Show?
"How does city Powell get out of speaking of which skipping her grand jury appearance in Georgia? Which, by the way, that's another whole, another whole part of the Georgia thing, the grand jury wants to ask her about an involvement in an incident in South Georgia, the more video shows people being led into the county elections office to download elections data from voting machines and an election server. State investigators call it criminal behavior, Sidney Powell paid for all of that. And she just doesn't show up. So Sidney Powell, we got a runner, you know? And she's slow though. She'll never she won't get far. Running through, you know, swamps tracking down the crack and I mean, this has all the makings of a holiday. It's a Hollywood blockbuster. Is there someone gonna say she won't get far on foot? Yeah, we got a runner. Yeah, she won't get far. So I suspect they're gonna say, oh, there was some confusion about the date and chill up here. She didn't want to be running from the Georgia law enforcement authorities that will be signed to lock her up for failing to appear before the grand jury.
Glenn Kirschner Explains Trump's Colossal Miscalculation
"We're just in a good mood, right? Because it's been a good week for justice. So where do we even start? So this is a legal term, but judge Derry has had enough of Donald Trump's bull at this point. It seems, is that legally am I saying that correctly? Yeah, what a colossal miscalculation of Donald Trump to recommend judge deary to oversee the review of the documents he stole from the federal government because, you know, the adults are back in the room when it comes to the federal judges that are now presiding both the 11th circuit Court of Appeals and in New York judge dear they are now presiding over Donald Trump's crimes and I'll tell you, Donald Trump is in deep trouble. Judge deary told him put up or shut up when it comes to these ridiculous claims that the FBI planted classify documents at Mar-a-Lago. So we are now on a very good track in this litigation.
Eric and John Discuss What Happens When People Discard Christianity
"Talking to John Z rack, what more do I have to tell you? I think as you were saying in your new book, letter the American church, as Glenn is not attained Lion. And I thought the moment you reminded me of that, I thought of like people like. David French and Russell Moore, their version of Narnia, Aslan is a Persian cat. A pudgy person cat that you pet and you feed a God purse for you. Jesus is your pal. He's your drinking buddy. That's not it. I mean, Christianity is kind of a scary religion. There's only one thing scarier, which is what people do when they throw Christianity aside. What people become when they abandon Christianity is far worse than ordinary paganism. I wish Roman paganism were taking over in America compared to what's taking over.
Ali Velshi: America Dodged a Bullet but the Gun Is Still Loaded
"If you want the news, where do you go, Chris? Where'd he go, Travis? America's news, man. Ali belty. That's right. And here he is again. Good morning, Ali velshi. Good morning to you, my friend. It is great to see you again on this Friday morning. It's a Friday's always a great long day for me. And this is my, you know, this is getting my blood flowing in the morning stretches. Yeah, yeah. Right. This is your stretch for your weekend. And I have my your pillow. Yes. If my pillow, not anything relevant about my pillow, I just thought I'd bring my pillow. You know, I was going to read this tweet to you because this is where we find ourselves. You having to be a news reporter in this day and age. Patrick tweets, a pillow magnate, just had his phone seized by the FBI at a hardee's in connection to a fired reality TV host trying to steal The White House and I'm begging the writers of America season 246 to please stop drinking for even one day. Do you not feel like that when you're just like, who else was it? Oh, somebody, oh, Don said, it seems almost written that Trump will be picked up at a McDonald's. Who was the other guy in a clown wig at dairy? And dairy Queen. The guy that said Trump is going to be reinstated. But that's real. That's real. Ally. Where do we find ourselves at this juncture? The problem is, and as I've traveled around the world, it's all like this, right? It's all stuff that you could discount as not sufficient to make a movie plot. The type of lawyers Trump surrounded him with the four seasons landscaping thing after the election. It's all the Christina bob as his lawyer. It's all like that except two problems are occurring. One is they actually did real damage and continue to do real damage. They actually ruined real people's lives. So aside from people who were killed on January 6th, a lot of people were duped who are now going to jail. And Donald Trump continues to phone in to their rallies and things like that and encouraged. Not a bit of remorse. If I ever did anything that caused another human to spend a night in detention, I would be racked with remorse forever. But number three, which is the most important is that everybody looks at that stupid clown car and says, you know, they weren't going to succeed at this, which is not entirely true, right? But for Mike Pence making a decision at the last minute, our democracy could have been fully imperiled. There are a whole lot of smarter people out there who aren't part of the clown car. Who aren't Rudy Giuliani who want to buy who aren't, you know, all these lawyers that he's got who are looking at this thinking, um, I can figure out a way to get this right so that isn't a pillow guy and a McDonald's and all of this kind of stuff. That's actually what I worry about. The too many people look at this ridiculousness and write it off as, wow, that was stupid and ridiculous. But we didn't really Dodge a bullet. We actually really did Dodge a bullet and we better be careful because the guns got more in them. Yeah, this has caused one of America's premier newsman Ali velshi to bring an actual prop on a morning radio show. You actually brought a pillow because if I want to be really good, I'd have a pillow and a phone because the pillow magnet had his phone set. That's right. Now, you're going to cover that this weekend about by the way, it is not easy to see someone's phone, right? I mean, there have been a number of phones. Tell us about how you're covering that this weekend. Well, so I want to try to make sense of it, right? Because of the January 6th committee, there's the Department of Justice investigation in which Merrick Garland seems to have woken up to the idea that despite the possible damage and martyrdom of Donald Trump, if he's indicted for anything, the Department of Justice has to take this seriously and in a timely manner. So the DoJ has seized a bunch of phones. They put out a bunch of subpoenas. Now keep in mind, we got, we got Boris Epstein. He had his phone taken. And Mike Roman, who was a campaign strategist for Trump had a phone taken. The pillow man had his Jeffrey Clark had his phone taken back in June, Dan scavino, the social media director, had his and Bernie kerik. Former commissioner of the New York police, who was working with Rudy Giuliani in overturning the election, had his phone taken. It is very hard to take somebody's phone, by the way. The Department of Justice can't do it as a fishing expedition like Donald Trump likes to say. You can't take a phone for purely investigative investigatory purposes. You have to have probable cause of a crime and convince someone that you do. There's a high bar to getting someone's phone. Now, my confusion is that when it comes to pillow guy and guys like that, I feel like they've said all the quiet parts out loud on either fox or whatever crazy outlook will have them. So I'm curious as to what could possibly be on their phone, but they haven't already said they're being sued by dominion voting. They're being sued by all sorts of people. So I don't know, but I will say this that between the January 6th committee and the Department of Justice, they've all been very deliberative, more deliberative than many of your listeners are my viewers would like them to be. We took them to move faster in some cases. They've been very deliberative. So if they're getting the stuff, one of two things is happening. They know there's valuable information on those phones or it's information they already know and they are now calling these guys in or looking at their phones to say, we already know this. We just need further corroboration before we place charges or things like that. So those two things are happening and I don't know which. Right. So this special master ruling, we just talked to Glenn kirschner about it. I mean, it's just, it's getting harder and harder to sort of cover, first of all, I don't even know how you keep track of all of these stories of lawbreaking, and which crimes are being investigated by who. But you know, I mean, I guess Trump has succeeded once again in at least delaying. Yes, that's exactly what it is because the special master has to get through the documents now by November 30th. Which, you know, the Trump people had wanted three months. The Department of Justice and wanted less. November 30th, the one, the one thing about that, and I guess the Department of Justice doesn't care to get politics involved in this, but there's a sort of political thing happening between now and November 30th and it's November 8th, right? It's the actual midterm elections in which it does seem that some Republicans and conservatives are disgruntled by the degree of criminality that seems to surround the former Trump administration and Trump today. And so that's the frustration that why November 30. This is just a delay tactic. There may or may not be some documents that were seized that were inappropriate, but generally speaking, the FBI and what's called its filter team do a relatively good job of this. So this is just going to be a way to do what Donald Trump has always done. One day, perhaps Donald Trump will face the music. Yeah. He's very, very, very good at delay, and that's what the special master essentially. Yeah. Speaking of politics, our Republicans trying to lose the midterms. Let's talk about the Lindsey Graham's proposed. Right? That's exactly right. And now this stunt was desantis and Abbott, you know, illegally flying migrants in some cruel prank. So it's cruel. It's cruel and the cruelty seems to be the point. I'm not sure that moves the needle politically all that much other than gets Democrats who were thinking of not voting. To vote. But I think abortion may have done that anyway. So I think you're seeing a lot of energy amongst Democrats, which you wouldn't have seen in the midterm typically. But the Lindsey Graham thing just weird, right? The
Glenn Kirschner Will Risk Trump's Threats to Defend Democracy
"Started? What are we running for? Let's do this. Yes, when I say I can't run for office because I can't fundraise. I'm not looking to get a rise out of people who are like, will help you. You know, I created a 501c3 nonprofit national homicide families went through the IRS process that was not fun, but we got our approval. And then I went on exactly one fundraising call and it made me want to hurl and I realized I can't ask people for money even for really worthy causes. I was a public servant step for more than 30 years and I never had to ask one person for $1 in order for me to be a public servant. I can't start now by saying I want to run for office and be a public servant. So money, money, money, money, money, not in my DNA, unfortunately. Yeah. Well, that doesn't mean you still can't be appointed. What am I looking for? Oh, attorney general. Yeah. Okay, I'm just saying, that's not running. Okay, you were the, one of the many of us who you tweeted. So Donnie soprano and the boys got together at the bottom being golf club to sort through some problems. I mean, between this Sopranos scene on the golf course with no golfing going on. And this latest threat, he just said, what did he say? I think there's going to be a big trouble if I'm indicted. I mean, how much more explicit a threat of inciting violence could there be? Yeah, it'll be big trouble and boy will it be good trouble. And it's precisely the kind of trouble this country needs. We can not decline to charge somebody for their crime stuff for fear of how that person's associates or supporters will react. If that impacts our decision, who to indict, then the rule of law is truly dead. Let him threaten violence. Let Lindsey Graham threaten that there will be protests and there will be riots fine. Bring it on because some things are worth fighting for like the rule of law and the future of our democracy. Yep, absolutely. Finally, you tweeted our team justice members have been sending me pictures they took while attending Saturday night's event in D.C.. It was such a pleasure and a privilege to get to share the stage with Stephanie Miller and representative Raskin to share the legal issues of the day in our fight for justice. You just posted a clip of you and Jamie Raskin and we were, what I didn't get a chance to watch it yet, 'cause there was so much good stuff that happened. What was that particular exchange? Do you remember? Yeah, so that clip you and I and representative Raskin were talking about basically the deep injustice that's at play in America right now where the people that Donald Trump lied to and used that lie to urge them to attack the capitol. Those people are going to prison because they obey Donald Trump's commands and they fell for his lies. Donald Trump, the person who is most criminally responsible for the capital attack has a teen time later today. That's a deep injustice that needs to be remedied right now because we add on top of that stuff. The classified documents crimes at Mar-a-Lago, Trump had top secret materials national defense information, which is why this is an espionage act crime being investigated. And information about the nuclear capabilities and defenses of foreign countries and he has not been arrested by the Department of Justice for committing all of those most dangerous crimes that undermines the confidence in our federal government and in our rule of law. These things must be made right by the Department of Justice, not rocket science, just good government. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I feel like what happens is we get overwhelmed. I think you and Jamie were talking about that Saturday night that, you know, in all of this new espionage stuff, you're like, Jamie's over there going, wait a minute. What about our crimes? What about the overthrow of the government in January 6th? I mean, and speaking of which, I mean, there are going to be starting again, obviously the J 6 committee wanted to ask you finally, what did you think of a lot of people speculating on what Zoe lofgren meant and also many Thompson, do you feel like they're saying they have recovered the missing Secret Service tax? Yeah, and I don't think they were ever missing in the first place. Let's just say they were, they were perhaps misplaced or mistaken about them all being permanently deleted or purged. So they clearly have lots and lots of text messages now. So the next logical question beyond what do they tell us about what the Secret Service and Mike Pence and Donald Trump and Mark Meadows were doing on January 5th and 6th and 7th. But why did the machinery of the Secret Service and DHS at least the former leadership of DHS try to lie about it and keep them from being viewed by Congress and inferentially the Department of Justice? That is the next investigative lead. They're going to have to follow. All right, you heard him. Starve stage screen. And LA sexy liberal. Go to sex in the world dot com. Thank you, honey. See you next week. Thanks, Seth. Obviously. I love you
The Importance of Remembering the Names
"I'm at the point now and you should be too that when you you know what do I always tell you about the cases like this Remember the names right Remember the names was kind of an adage I used when I was talking about the spy gay case I'd say memorize the names It's a trick I learned as a federal agent Because if you don't remember the names what happens is you'll be sitting in a room and you'll be interviewing some bad guy and say a credit card fraud case that's really complicated And they'll throw out a name And if you don't have the names memorized and how they fit in the case you'll miss it But if you have a memorizing he says hey John Brown and you're like John Brown oh my gosh that was the guy who was connected to Tony Smith and whatever And right there in the room you can put it together and you had so I tell you all the time remember the names especially when it comes to scanty Trump scandals like spygate because when you see the name creep up in a news story they may not make connections you'll make So whenever I see names like Bruce or Steven soma Joe Bianca I know exactly Bianca those were the guys that were involved in the interview with Mike Flynn and somo was the New York guy involved with the exchange of information here and there It's really important to remember the names I bring that up not to get off track but because it's important with reporters too I can read a New York Times Washington Post story or I should have stuck an ore in there or Washington Post story And by seeing the headline in the author and the byline right away I can tell this is a deep state piece I'll throw NBC in there too If I see something by Adam Goldman Kendall and NBC Maggie haberman Glenn thrush Charlie savage Devlin Barrett who else Philip bump I know instantly that you're essentially reading you're reading what the deep state crowd wants you to read because their mouthpieces for the deep state
Glenn and Leigh of Patriot Mobile Tell Their Side of the Story
"Another group that's coming in hot because they've been in hot water a little bit this year and this week. Is Glenn's story and Leigh Wong guests from patriot mobile with the CEO and the VP of government affairs because NBC, we talked about this yesterday, they are going hard against patriot mobile and what was the headline, right? It was the far right Christian cell phone provider that is taking over Texas school boards. I want to get them on to get their side of the story because boy, they are really mad that the rights and really just common sense regular Christian folks because this is the fight of our country and here patriot mobile is one company that is willing to stand up. Glenn Lee, welcome to the program. Thank you for having us. Jack, thank you for having us. It's always great to see you. Oh, it's great. We were just down at cpac together. We did an incredible event. We did the book signing. We had my antifa book. We just did a segment talking about some of the stuff that was in the NT support, by the way. Kenosha, but first, tell us what was it that you all were up to with the Texas school boards, and then explain why at NBC is so mad at you guys. Well, NBC being mad at us is not a new thing. And this particular reporter has a history of being very interesting with facts, but the bottom line is what happened Monday night in Texas. Is elected officials did in an elected position. What they said, they were going to do when they ran for office. And neither the left nor the right is used to that.
Are We Close to Justice for Donald Trump? Michael Cohen Weighs In
"Can I just say our good friend Glenn kirshner said of your book? Michael Cohen exposed Trump's crimes. He testified about them to Congress he brought receipts, revealing to the American people the campaign finance crimes he committed with for the benefit of and that the direction of individual one Donald Trump and Michael paid the price yet no accountability for Trump. This is not how America is supposed to work. I mean, Michael, you're obviously a lawyer. Most of the legal experts like Glenn like Glenn that we talked to think we are closer than ever to actual justice for Donald Trump. Do you feel that way too? I do. I think that the district attorney's case on in October is going to provide more than what people are giving it credit. Alan weisselberg has the ability to escape a potential 15 year sentence for his crimes, which were, of course, in cahoots with Donald and the Trump organization. Despite the fact that the claiming that he will not be cooperating in any case against Donald Trump, you can not separate out the eponymous company that is owned solely by Donald from Donald. So whatever he testifies to can not be beneficial to Donald.
What We're Expecting From Release of Redacted Raid Affidavit
"This should be released any moment. I suppose, right? The judge orders the release of the redacted Mar-a-Lago rate affidavit. What do you expect in here? Because I'm sort of torn between, I'm sure all of it makes Trump look bad, but you know, how much is too much before you compromise the investigation or chill witnesses. Yeah, so the career prosecutor in me says, I don't want any of it released because I don't want the investigation to be hampered. I don't want witnesses to be put in harm's way. The American in me, you know, the person who desperately wants to see Donald Trump held accountable wants to see all of it. But here's what I think we're going to get step. I think we're going to get the history, kind of the run up to what cause the FBI to apply for the search warrant. So we already know about the national archives going down there and begging and pleading for the return of the documents, and they got a small fraction of them. We know the counter terrorism officials from the Department of Justice and FBI agents went down there in June, and it seems like they were assured you've got it all. Well, they didn't get it all. Then we had to serve a grand jury subpoena on Trump and company. He violated that. So then we hit his house with a search warrant. So I think we already know a good bit about that history and that chronology we're probably going to see a lot of that revealed, but we're not going to see much more revealed, at least that's my strong suspicion.
It's Impossible to Conceive of Trump NOT Being Indicted
"Of the things you tweeted is Donald Trump either doesn't understand that he can't follow a Fourth Amendment motion to suppress evidence until after he's indicted or he's saying he will find such emotion because he knows he will be indicted in which case I say file away Donald. I have to say more and more legal experts that I'm hearing including you are saying he's going to be indicted. I mean, it feels like even the right wing is trying to prepare us for this. Impossible to conceive of Donald Trump not being indicted. And you know there was a game changer in one sentence of the recent New York Times reporting when they reported that witnesses told them or were revealing to The New York Times reporters that Donald Trump went through the boxes personally. There's a reason that's so important stuff real quickly. I don't want to turn this into criminal law one O one. There are two ways you can possess evidence in the eyes of the law. You can actually possess it when you have it in your hands, or you can constructively possess it. What does that mean? Well, that means Donald Trump said, take those boxes and put them in a storage storage facility down at Mar-a-Lago. That's constructive possession because you are directing the movement and access over those documents. But if you don't have your hot little and I emphasize little hands on them. Prosecutors get uncomfortable. They're like, we know we can prove it with constructive possession. But that's not as strong a case as if we can prove actual possession. Well, it looks like they can now prove actual possession when I saw that reporting, I thought, okay, the odds of an espionage and related criminal case being brought against Donald Trump have just skyrocketed.
Bringing Financial Hope to the People of Virginia
"I got some time to talk with Jenkins, who is running in Virginia second district down in the Norfolk Virginia Beach area. That's all she talked about. She's a mom and nurse a veteran, a military spouse. All she talks about is education and I think every Republican candidate is well served by that. But I do want to tell you what Frank luntz, I had breakfast with him two mornings ago. He showed me all his deck. Affordability, anxiety, anger. People are afraid. They go to sleep, worried they don't have enough money to make it through the month. They are anxious about crime and about social upheavals and they are angry at the indifference of elected officials. Does that match up with your first 7 months in office Glenn youngkin? A 100%, a 100%. I travel around this Commonwealth extensively. I'm listening to virginians and what I'm hearing over and over again is I can not afford to do the things that I need to be able to do. We're watching people making tradeoffs. These horrific policies that have emanated from Washington that are basically stalling the American Dream are stealing from all of our all of our hardworking virginians, stealing three, four, 5, $6000 out of their paychecks. And people are worried. We've got to get inflation down and we've got to reestablish faith in these institutions.
Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin on School Choice
"Now, governor, when we run into people worried about choice, they say you're going to leave the poor kids behind. When you talked about it, the audience I was interviewing, it's the opposite. You want to empower parents of straightened circumstances to get the education they want and the opportunity for their kids. And that really begins with curriculum reform. And it really we got to get ideology out of elementary schools at least and probably house girls as well. We absolutely do have to focus on curriculum reform lesson. Just this past week, the history curriculum for Virginia had made its way up through a committee that had been controlled by my predecessors appointments. They put forth the history curriculum. They wanted to remove the title of father of our country from George Washington and father of the constitution from James Madison. And I just said, no way. And we went back and delayed things. They're going to go do more work here. We should tell all of our history. The good and the bad. But goodness gracious, we shouldn't denigrate our founding fathers for the great work they did and starting the greatest country on the planet. So there is still huge work to do on curriculum. We need to teach critical math, critical history, critical science, and most importantly, we have to have high expectations for our kids. There's
Virginia Governor's Race Was About Education
"Governor, when I was with these young Republican candidates, and they were mostly young. I said to him, I watched Glenn youngkin win, and there were two secrets. Susie youngkin, who was out there at the early voting thing, a whole family was involved, and then he talked incessantly about education. What do you think Republicans at every level? Ought to be telling voters of every sort demographic age and income about education. The first thing they should say is parents matter and there's no clearer message that over the last few years, left liberal Democrats have been trying to systematically intervene with bureaucrats and politicians and replace parents role in their kids lives. And that has been clear my opponent Terry McAuliffe stated it clearly as an objective. And let me tell you, this isn't Republicans versus Democrats. This is virginians in Americans who are saying no way. It's my kid. And so systematically, we have to make sure that every candidate understands parents matter.
Trump Knows His 'Standing Declassification Order' Is Rubbish
"18 former Trump officials tell CNN his standing order of declassification was and I quote, which I think is a legal term that it was both. Literally, that's what they said. You've also said to us that part of that doesn't even matter that obviously Trump seems to think this exonerates him somehow, but that's not even the major charge, is it? Yeah, you know, Donald Trump only opens his mouth to lie or incriminate himself these days. And so there are two points with respect to this claim that I had a standing declassification order. First of all, that's not how it works. Right. But second, did you see that Trump released a declassification order from years ago for, I think, the Fast & Furious, which was DoJ. I think it was crossfire that wasn't cross code that wasn't Glenn, sorry, wasn't it crossfire hurricane? Because crossfire hurricane, not the fast and the first one. Right. And what that showed was there is a process involved in formally declassifying stuff. Trump knew it, and he followed the process years ago. Right. So he's always playing against himself when he tries to offer the explanation du jour.
Glenn Kirschner on Unsealing Parts of the Mar-A-Lago Affidavit
"A lot to break down here. So let's talk about this the judge ordering portions of the Mar-a-Lago search affidavit to be unsealed. My first instinct would be, you don't unseal anything during an ongoing investigation. But break down for us what you're thinking about this, because the government gets to make redactions, they tell to a certain date, the judge will review it. Give us your breakdown of this. I think he had all us former fed schools. Because we kind of thought this would be an easy call for the judge. He would hear arguments that, you know, releasing any of this information would interfere with an ongoing investigation. Would impact national security matters? Would endanger the lives of witnesses and discourage other witnesses from cooperating. But you know what? Upon reflection, one thing we have to keep in mind, this hearing yesterday was not Donald Trump versus the Department of Justice. This hearing was the fourth estate. The news organizations, the media saying, we believe this is so important and historic and there is a need for at least some transparency. The public needs to know at least a little bit of the misconduct of Donald Trump that led to these search warrants being executed, that it was the media that was moving to have this stuff on seal. And the prosecution trotted out the same old line that I've trotted out many times. You know what? I'm going investigation judge. The judge said, well, I hear you. But what I want from you are proposed redactions because I'd like to see you take a first crack at redacting out all the stuff that might interfere with your investigation, but showing to the public all the stuff that doesn't. And there's a lot of stuff that doesn't.
The Trump Bombshells Keep Dropping With Glenn Kirschner
"Let me just talk to you about this latest reporting this morning. National security experts are also shocked that signals intelligence was recovered, so it's not even just the nuclear stuff, former senior intelligence officials said during the Trump administration highly classified intelligence about sensitive topics, including about intelligence gathering in Iran, was routinely mishandled one former official said the most highly classified information often ended up in the hands of personnel who didn't appear to have the need to possess it weren't authorized to read it. Former official also said signals intelligence intercepted electronic communications like emails and phone calls of foreign leaders was among the type of information that often ended up with unauthorized personnel, such intercepts were among the most closely guarded secrets because of what they can reveal about how the U.S. has penetrated foreign governments. One person with familiar with the inventory of the 15 boxes taken from Mar-a-Lago indicated signals intelligence material was in them. I mean, Michael Hayden just tweeted Jesus Christ. That's what intelligence professionals are saying. They said Bill crystal said people ask why would Trump keep documents plenty of possible reasons EG this is pure speculation. Signals Intel on MBS and Jamal Khashoggi or on Saudi nukes are the kind of docs you'd want in case you had to remind the Saudis to keep the money coming, one historian said if it was you or I and not Trump or were in possession of top secret documents about nuclear weapons or signals Intel will you and I would be handcuffs in a very bright room with glam rock playing in our ears yet he plays the victim. Again, every time you think we're at the end of a bombshell, right? And I didn't even know what signals intelligence was until this morning, but that's another layer, right? It is. And you know what this proves Steph, it proves the folly of having a policy that says you can't indict a sitting criminal president because people knew he was misusing mishandling classified documents all day every day. That closes the danger to our national security and by all accounts we did nothing about it. Why? Because a sitting president gets to commit as many crimes as he wants while in the Oval Office with impunity. That's insanity. That's banana republic approach to government. And this highlights the danger of that, which is now come home to roost. I hope we learn this lesson based on this episode.
"This Is As Dangerous As Trump Gets" Says Glenn Kirschner
"It feels like accountability is trending stuff. You know, this is a big step on the road to justice. And it's shocking, even though we've known for a long time, Trump is a lifelong abject criminal. You know, the fact that he stole materials from The White House brought them down to Mar-a-Lago. They clawed back 15 boxes. I'm sure Trump and his people over and over again assured law enforcement authorities in the national archives. We gave you everything and then we learned that they were subpoenaing things and Trump and company were refusing to give them up. They subpoenaed surveillance tapes to see who might be accessing what we now suspect. Might be documents pertaining to nuclear weapons systems. And still, they couldn't get them back so they finally go in and execute a search warrant. We can talk about what goes into getting a federal search warrant. I've done it hundreds of times. It ain't easy in normal circumstances. And I'll tell you, Steph, the only thing that's left is indictments, criminal charges because, you know, this is as dangerous as Trump gets. I didn't think he could up the ante on the trees in front, but he just has.
Are Trump Boxes the Real Problem?
"I do want to talk about allocation of bureau resource. You have a lot of FBI agents living in your state and they're important and valued members of our entire national fabric. They do great work.

I'm worried about people in front of justice Kavanaugh's house, including an attempted assassination of him. I'm worried about an open border. I'm I just don't know about the allocation of resources to boxes and Donald Trump's basement that this represents. Well, I can't argue with that and Marilyn probably has a higher percentage of FBI agents living there than any other state. I would imagine we've got a higher percentage of federal employees than any other state we surround the nation's capital. I just had a meeting with John Bolton last week in Annapolis. He lives in Maryland. And he does have security. I mean, I don't know all the details of these threats, but apparently it's still a concern. And we have been both Glenn youngkin and I, governor of Virginia, have been pushing the Biden administration to do more at the federal level to help us. It's been state and local police trying to enforce the law, but there are federal laws protecting the Supreme Court Justices, and they're really not doing it.

"It's Matt I've heard a lot of interesting theories behind radical gender ideology the one that entices me the most and I think explains it more full scope As the idea of the left loves division So the vision for obvious reasons it creates victims and then the left comes in and says look we're protecting you victims against these awful capitalists and Republicans or whatever And that works really well with identity politics union versus non union black versus white immigrant versus non immigrant But they've always attacked the family too And this is the perfect way to assault the American family isn't it matter By teaching a bunch of kids how different they are and how they're old fogey parents just don't understand them Is that what's really at the heart here Yeah I certainly think that's one of the things that lies at the heart of this is the attack on all of our institutions and especially the most basic institution which is the family And that's why that's why they're so upset at Florida with the anti groomer law when of course the law is everyone knows at least if they listen to your show they know that that law only would affect their stop The indoctrination of kids up until third grade And normal people say well why would you want to talk to kids younger than that anyway Well that's exactly what the left wants to do because they're trying to sow this division between they're trying to pull the child away from the parent and away from their parents influence As early as possible So we think that's a big part of it Also and it even deeper level this is I think gender ideology most fundamentally of all is an attack just on the concept of truth itself which is why almost every interview I had eventually devolved into this well what is true Well whose truth are we talking about All that kind of stuff because they don't want to admit that we have any shared reality whatsoever The individual is supposed to be able to invent their own reality for themselves And I think that's really what they want the most

A swim in a pond in The Rain, colon, in which four Russians give a masterclass on writing, reading and life is a book by the great writer, George Saunders about whom I just can't shut up. It's basically a class in the classic short story. As a form, so it focuses on the craft of it all. How and why on a line by line basis, how you create and maintain tension. How things like the lengths of your sentences and paragraphs manipulate your readers mood what describing something with this kind of imagery versus that kind of imagery does to your reader's imagination, and ultimately how you've got a responsibility as an author to anticipate your reader's expectations and then confound them in a way that still satisfying. He does this by presenting a bunch of short stories by four Russian authors, check up Tolstoy Duque and Google. So yeah, one level, it's a panel mail talking about how great these other four pale males are. But it is a class in the essentials, right? And it's a very hugely impassioned and talented writer basically geeking out about something with a great specificity, a great usefulness. It never comes off as condescending or elitist or entitled because he just really wants to share these techniques that these writers employ with you. It is the best part of any writer's workshop, basically, which is reading classic stories, and then unpacking them. And I recommend the audiobook a lot. He's not a dynamic reader by any stretching imagination, but he's a very sincere one, and the actual stories are read by people like Felicia Rashad, BD Wong, Rene Elise goldsberry, Glenn Close, Nick Offerman, and others..

"Order to be a assange gree as the people who broke into the Capitol building are you've got to be convinced that the election was stolen for Donald Trump. And I've got to tell you. It's possible, but it's not certain and I don't know how many votes were stolen. And neither does anybody else know it. There's some theories, of course. The Mail in voting give a comparison between 2016 in 2020. In 2016. When Trump beat Clinton. There are a total of 130 million votes in 2020. When Biden be Trump. There were 155 million. Votes and a huge fraction of those were mail in ballots, which is the devil's playpen for election fraud. But to believe that the algorithm In the Dominion voting machines was rigged. It's a real stretch, especially because in so many places, other Republicans down ballot Did so much better than Trump and they were on the same valid. So was the Dominion voting machine, able toe only steal the votes for president and not the votes for other offices that strikes me as a stretch. Also, somebody said, how in the world could Joe Biden We didn't get anybody's enthusiasm. How could he get 12 million more votes than the charismatic Barack Obama did in 2008? Because in this election Biden got 81 million votes. Well, for one thing between 2008 and 2020. The population grew by 25 million people. What which would account for a lot of additional votes to say nothing of how much easier it was to vote by mail for people who wouldn't bother going to opponent place. I gotta tell you I want to make. I want to go back Tonto, making voting not challenging for anyone to do so legally beyond you know, a reasonable measure. I think that voter ideas and extremely important And I think that honestly, mail in voting makes it too easy for uninformed, stupid people to vote. And that's where I have a problem with. I wrote right after the election. I said the same thing I have to to recommendations. First of all, except for people who absolutely absolutely need an absentee ballot because they're infirmed or military troops overseas. Uh, Without that reason, you shouldn't get a mail in ballot in the future. There's too much risk of election fraud. And the second thing I do is go back to going to a precinct place. Getting behind that curtain pulling the leaders now? Yeah, pulling the big one back that opens the curtain again. Like the jackpot of voting hard copy record of it, They're far less vulnerable to election fraud. Never mind minded going to a polling place to vote. I kind of like going to a polling place to vote today. The truth? Well, Mike, I appreciate your thoughts. People can also find yourself on your Facebook page as well. If you don't follow my crows, and you should Also the Denver Gazette and the Colorado Springs Gazette. Run my column every every two weeks to all right, Mike, We're gonna wait here became is going to join us. What are we reviewing? Next week? We just talked about it off the air. And I already Oh, I remember hillbilly elegy. Going clothesline. Plus, I told both Dave and Mike. I read the book, Hillbilly Elegy, and it was really, really fantastic. However, I don't know how that's going to translate because a lot of the book kind of talks about the psychology. Of people in Apple, Asia, Poor white people in Appalachia. How the migration from Kentucky to Ohio occurred opioid addiction in that area and within that population, and he talked about the psychology of all that. So I'm interested to see how they try to translate that. Into action. You know, I wonder if that's going to come because that's the part of the book I loved was with him talk sure on the mindset was in that book. That movie called Monster. She played a murderer's Yeah Island, Warners and Charlie's third is a beautiful woman, but she was made up to look terrific in this movie. Glenn Close, certainly doesn't look attractive at all. Now, Of course, she's older than she was in fatal attraction, but she was intentionally made up to look absolutely terrible, which takes a lot of courage for for beautiful women to do that kind of No, that's your Oscar role, because you have to be ugly. If you want to win an Oscar as a woman, So that's her. That's her ugly Oscar role. It'll be fine shall win. It's great, and there has been Oscar talk about her role in because she was ugly. That's what women have to do. B. What? BK has joined us. Yes, sir. And has there been a very attractive woman and who didn't get ugly Tupper Ugly down, you know? Do you think about it? Like Charlie Stamper Monster's ball? No monster was Charlie Sarah on the monster's ball was how she played a hooker. You're like a hooker. So something have we seen someone that got to be their normal, elegant, beautiful self still win the Oscar that year. I have to go back and check on saying Robert was she nominated for pretty woman, or did you? Well, I don't think she don't know if she's been nominated for anything.

In hillbilly jay where her talent is shining on its highest being. So congratulations to you. God thank you peter. Thank you very much. And i'm looking at you and when i see you and you'll be billy algae i say who the hell is that. What about this transformation that you make to play this character. Well you know. It started. When i when i knew i was going to do memo is started with. I can't be distracted by my own face. I can't you know if i think the audience sees my face. I'll be very distracted by that though. I called matthew mongol reading. Oh genius makeup artist. Special effects makeup in mossy oak own views is done my wigs for practically my entire career and they had done also janet mcteer ni- and albert and matthew came up from texas where he's kind of semi retired when i still had a house out you know in westchester and we sat in my kitchen and he experimented with with shapes because it was really amazing. How just a very slight alteration of its shape of your nose for example can take your own face away so <hes>. It was that and also mammal in life had big ears so he added you know size of my ears in my ear lobes. In the night. I curl my hair and made it all frizzy and ron came over because he just lives over the border in connecticut and he was kind of he was convinced because it i of course you know you worry about the time taken in the chair in the morning with any kind of percents but this was actually you know just slight difference of the nose and ears in it. I i was reading an hour every day <hes>. But that was the beginning. And i we were given a portrait of mammoth fabulous portrait for slightly looking up with the big glasses and her hair and that was kind of what we went on. And then eventually saw videos from the family of her inaction laughing surrounded by kids pulling a wagon and then i the thing that was most valuable for me was to have one on one with bev with lindsay with a cousin with jd. And just saying okay. How did she sit. What did she wear. How did she hold her cigarette <hes>. What was her voice like what. What was your energy like when she came into a room. What was her house like. So just very specific things not to pretend i was her but to somehow find the essence of this woman. Who is just. I mean loved feared feared and loved. When you get a property like this. I mean let's start by that. How did it come to you. He'll billy allergy. Who showed it to you. I said well. To tell you the truth. I read the book you know. Not long after came out because i wanted to educate myself kennedy. Was it her. She made the wonderful wonderful documentary about the hill. People that i remember vividly. But that was more like the shacks in the moonshine. And that's kind of the cliche and cliches are uninteresting. And i think cliche can lead to people being stigmatized and i think this group of people have been stigmatized. And then i heard that ron was had gotten the rights was developing the script and i wrote him a note and i said when you're thinking of memo please think of me thinking never in a million years would you. Because it's not like casting that you would necessarily leaked to. But then he got exciting for. You is the best thing about exciting new territory. And that's the essence of what we do right. I mean we were. We explore the human condition. And you don't want to go over territories spiritual emotional psychological that you've done before and so this was a great great journey for me to to learn about mammo to meet her family. I really believe i. It's just a fact that all great drama is based in family and you tell a very specific story about family and it has repercussions for everyone matter who they are and and that to me is the value of making it authentic and honest because then people can say they they almost subliminally will link it to their own lives. I heard that you met her son. Oh yes yes. He came settled. So what did he say when he's looking at you playing her and in a way reproducing this woman who's gone now he couldn't believe it. I mean the thing when the family and they came later when we were like a bunch of them came on on the day that i shooting the scene with little jd when he's <hes>. I've told that he has to give his p to his mother and they came onset set. We're we're on a location. And some of them started crying. They somehow whatever we found was the mammal that they remembered and her son came came in another scene and he had to leave because he got so emotional. So that was really gratifying. I think we wanted to do justice. And we wanted to in way carry on the legacy of mammal. I women all over the world who are mammals you know. Always a yankee game sat next to a grandmother and grandfather. Taking care of their ten year old grandson. And i think he'd oh my god no retirement for them. I said their daughter was unable to take care of them so they were raising their grandson and it happens a lot in this country that know. We see every time we turn around to do that. And i say from the specific comes the universal to do that. But i think it's going to have an effect watching this movie now because all of us many of us even if we're lucky enough to live in some kind of bubble where we have. Some family members with us isn't going to be a thanksgiving where we can all get together in large kind of group. it's just impossible with this pandemic. How are you living with. Pandemic there in montana. We'll see interesting. Because i've not achieved as much creatively as i wanted. I wanted to really really right. Haven't and i'm not sure why not be. I think it's brought a kind of sometimes. I feel like. I'm spinning my tires. You know in in the mud and not getting a traction. And but i make sure my sink is clean all the time. My kitchen isn't border. You know i make i will. Do i think that every day going. After the i kind of the little things to keep my life in order that have been important but he things are building. I think i would like to think that a great great era of creativity for for all of us who are in the are artists will come out of this.

"Back to the bench of Hero show, So we have an education system that is biased toward the left. We have a media that is biased toward left in social media bias toward the left. Of course, Hollywood is biased toward the left as well. Is a reason why Hillbilly elegy. The new giant movie from Ron Howard, starring Amy Adams and Glenn Close, is now being ripped up and down by members of your media and your Hollywood culture. So there's a new movie. It's out on Netflix called Hillbilly Elegy. I got to see an early viewing of the of the movie because I'm a special person. It is the story of J. D. Vance. JD Vance is a columnist for National Review. He went to Yale Law School. He served in the military, and it's based on his book, Hillbilly Elegy, Right, so Hillbilly Elegy sold up Julian copies. The book was basically a story about poverty culture in white Appalachia. It was about how his family came from Kentucky and how he grew up in impoverished in formerly industrial areas of Ohio and how a culture of poverty contributes to drug use and too bad parenting. And how in order break that cycle of poverty. Very often You have to make deliberate decisions to change how you have thought about your life right? That's what hillbilly elegy is about. And it's interesting socio cultural study. It became sort of a decoder ring for a lot of people in the media about Trump's America because they're wondering why do all these rural white people vote for Donald Trump this New York real estate mogul? How did that happen? And so hillbilly Elegy became kind of the way that they decoded that because these are a lot of people who are impoverished, and these impoverished people have been stuck in cycles of poverty, and Donald Trump promised them a way forward, and he promised them that he was going to solve some of their problems and it took them seriously. Okay. That was how hillbilly elegy was viewed. Then there's a switch. A couple of years ago, This book was published in 2016. It was widely heralded right left and center. Okay. Then there was a there was a move that happened. Probably 2017 2018 a backlash against the book after Trump won. So, in that glowing period where hillbilly elegy was popular all the way across the aisle, they made a movie of it. Okay in the movie features some the biggest stars in Hollywood. It got Glenn Close his mama and it's got it's got Amy Adams. It's got Amy Adams playing J. D. Vance, his mother. Okay, and the movie's good, It's a good movie. Okay, The movie doesn't go into sort of all these socio cultural stuff. Socioeconomic stuff that the book does because the book is a book and movie is a movie, but it is a good well told family story. Amy Adams is terrific in it. I mean, she's Physically transform. You can't recognize her. Right? Amy Adams. Very beautiful woman should play somebody who's essentially going to seed on. She's very good. Glenn Close plays Mama, and she's very, very good. The performance is across the board are universally quite good. The script is Inarguably a political It is not a political script is very obviously not a political script. The savage the critics have just savaged this thing to death. They've savaged this thing to death, and the reason they savaged this thing to death is because when it was green lit, it was considered a a sort of again decoder ring for Trump's America. And then, after Trump won, it became an evil book that was justifying the evils of Trump's America. So the Atlantic, for example, has a has a big piece by David Simms, called Hillbilly Elegy is one of the worst movies of the year. The new Netflix film is a think piece trap shiny on the outside hollow on the inside. Everyone in this world is one of three kinds. Declares Mama. Otherwise, grandma track of Ron Howard's new film, Hillbilly Elegy. Ah, Good Terminator, a Bad Terminator and neutral. I hate to correct Mama was trying to encourage her impressionable grandson, J. D. Vance to follow a righteous path by invoking Arnold Schwarzenegger beloved action franchise. There is no such thing as a neutral Terminator. These cyborg heroes exist either protect or destroy. I cannot imagine what a neutral Terminator would do. Mama is entitled to her bad movie opinions, of course, But this monologue is the kind of speechifying that rings hollow throughout. Hillbilly Elegy, an adaptation of J. D. Vance is best selling 2016 memoir that debuts on Netflix tomorrow. When it first arrived on bookshelves Man's His story was celebrated as a glimpse into an oft ignored pocket of America, the white working class of Appalachia and the rest belt. Who's willing to Donald Trump in the 2016 election held is an anger translator incited by both Hillary Clinton and Oprah Winfrey. Vance wrote about growing up poor living with a heroin addicted mother and clawing his way into Harvard Law School. The book arrived in a seemingly serendipitous moment, offering a bleak but candid view of communities got it by drug abuse and poverty. Hillbilly elegy. The memoir has been dissected. It challenged and eviscerated and largely focuses on the virtues of hard work and perseverance. Launching vague broadsides against the American welfare system. The author often appears uninterested in interrogating deeper systemic issues. As you can see that really Rip on the movie is going to be a rep on the book J. D. Vance happens to be a Republican. We can't have a book that makes a Republican, a movie that makes a Republican book look good. That can't be a thing. Adapting the book, Howard and screenwriter Vanessa Taylor have gone even further stripping the text of anything that might feel remotely controversial. Appointed. Netflix is Hillbilly Elegy is an Oscar friendly narrative of personal triumph in the face of great hardship, a movie designed to end with an uplifting epigraph. It is also one of the worst movies of the year stuffed with a list stars and cheerful monologues. Is a neutral terminator of a film polished yet utterly inert. Okay. So again, all the matters here is that the the basic movie is bad because J. D Vance is bad because hillbilly elegy is bad and this is how entertainments going to be treated with left has designs. On your personal future on what you can see on the information you can consume..

You think of that old movie fatal attraction with Douglas and Glenn Close that was total addiction and then you know I think you're right about the media I. Think I mean I was looking at my granddaughter's frozen now I don't know if there's a princeton ball, but they're all princesses everything's princess, and then she has the Barbie. Dream House. Nothing is fantasy and I mean I love fantasy but not to the extent that it takes over at what you think that's what life is about like prince charming is GonNa Sweep me off my feet. Yeah. I.

This is the way it's supposed to look. So what does that line then because you know no, one's going to deny that connection and relationships are big piece of human life. Right in the like finding. Love is one of the greatest things, but we also don't want to be so reliant on love and relationships that you lose yourself completely like what is the line of having a healthy relationship versus being a relationship addict? Relationship Addiction, I think healthy relationships have ups and downs I mean if they just do I think though if you keep going from one relationship to another or or let's say look at five relationships and only and one of them was an unhappy one you're not like the a relationship or marriage attic but if all five relationships worked so great and you were going from one to the next and you might WanNa, look at that seriously I mean if you're happy and every relationship and you feel even worse on your own, you're you're definitely a relationship addict and I'm just curious because I love celebrity gossip and Julie won't care. She doesn't care about celebrities Sherry you've worked with plenty of. On addictions and I always want to think like celebrities they're just like us.

They had a m C-130 transport plane fly four thousand feet above the ocean long trailing a cable. And then the 747 on the other end was added by post-production and they've used this dummy which they nicknamed Felix to pass a passenger to pass as a passenger on a job. Zipline but apparently his neck tie and jacket flew off and the pilots were like worried that his clothes would like keep flying off and get sucked into an engine. So oh shit Felix was grounded and the packages were added in like post-production as well. But like yeah, they actually had this like cargo plane out there at four thousand four thousand feet interesting. Dude. I'll tell you this thing that I don't need though is when he actually took it gives his dad, you know, he's on the plane, you know, he's taken off and once everything's done the president like oh my God.

That's our Justice League Watch Tower and everything should be on midnight double feature, So definitely check that out. I mean beyond that let's jump into this shit. I mean the reason why I kind of picked this is that hey, you know as I'm an Airforce One, I actually watched The Fugitive it was on HBO Max and I wage I watch The Fugitive and I was like man, I really like to cover the fugitive and I kind of got to talking hasn't called Danny dating. I definitely watched this The Rock The Fugitive Air Force One like we watch these movies growing up like we may watch a lot of Harrison Ford. So I select any fucking U which one of these do you want to pick? So this is kind of like not really my pig. This is Danny spic and I was like dude pick go crazy with these Harrison Ford movies, but we'll start with you. Like what is g or cuz I know you're a big Harrison Ford fan. You were always synonymous with me growing up to like Harrison Ford like Iowa Stallone to you or you were a Harrison Ford guy to say that but that is Jake parallels that I think that your Stallone was. Definitely my Harrison Ford. But yeah, I guess also just my you know in a lot of the films and we've talked about this before a lot of these movies that came out around this time of year because like your family people in your family or watching these well, so I guess my family also being like the Star Wars people and like in Harrison Ford, they naturally like got this and it was a fun action movie that we as a fagg. All loved watching just over and over again. It is a good escapism type of like of all of his types of roles. I'm not sure that there's like, you know, really awe-inspiring Life Academy Award winning cinematography moments or CGI necessarily maybe in this but not that I never looked really in any of the wards or anything that this may have one but it's just not like this strikes me more as like just the type of movie that you put on you really enjoy escaping and seeing all these really unique actors come together and I'll say now that this is a movie that I watched when I was so young that you know, how like, sometimes you see actors and actresses whenever you're young and then you don't realize until later in life that that was the person that you were watching been seen in a bunch of other roles. You're like, oh shit. I forgot that was minute. Okay, that's this is my version of that with Gary Oldman. I don't know why but I just did not recognize Gary wage. All meant in this role as a chameleon. Did Jim chameleon, no kidding. Like we we covered Leon right and we've course talked about really invite you back for episodes where we cover off. Yes. So yeah like this to me, it's just like like that was certainly what happened with me with this with the area whenever we ended up revisiting it probably like whatever five or six something years ago and I was like, oh great.

It's is just like a weird ass film where I can't even describe you because it's sci fi space horror film but there's just other stuff happening cinematic that I think you can only experience on psychedelics.
