Rep. Rashida Tlaib Whines That You're Not Paying off Her Students Loans

"Well Rashida Tlaib but on the House floor this weekend and started whining because she wants student loan forgiveness Student loan forgiveness make no mistake is a government welfare program where they steal money from hardworking taxpayers and then take the money to give it to relatively well off families who went to school and took student loans to pay for professional degrees and others which they then used to make a lot of money which I appreciate that they did that I'm a capitalist free marketeer But student loan forgiveness is one of the most regressive not progressive things you could do Listen to receipt of the lead member of Congress making a buck 70 plus a year probably close to 200 when you factor in everything she's doing Complain that you're not paying off your student loans This is real Check this out I worked full time Monday through Friday and took weekend classes to get my law degree And still close to $200,000 in debt And I still over $70,000 And most of it was interest Most of it was our own government making money and profit off of me And guess what I didn't go to the for profit entities Now the most patently offensive thing here is the obvious one That a rich soon to be very rich when she leaves Congress or stays in a woman making close to $200,000 a year paid for by you is on the House floor whining like a child that you won't pay back her student loans for you She actually did that and she wonders why the Republican Party has moved to a more populous appeal right now amongst working class Americans and Democrats are exclusively a coastal party of crazed leftist moon bat lunatics It's precisely because of stuff like

Lord Conrad Black Recaps Canada's Response to Keystore Pipeline Extension Cancellation

"The whole country was of the view that it was a breach of faith. I mean, we dutifully built part of it and now we built a pipeline of nowhere. I mean, we don't need a pipeline to go from Calgary to the Canadian border with I guess what is North Dakota there? In Montana, I guess it would be. And. Even the environmental group, which is includes the government of Canada, Justin Trudeau is one of these people who's terribly concerned about carbon emissions. But we had an insurance that was absolutely safe environmentally. Built to the highest standards delayed for years by then we got a dollar agreed with president Trump and all parties in this country were in favor of it. It was really going to be a breath of fresh air for me. Oil producing region of the country. Under the best of circumstances, exporting oil to our closest ally not only geographically, but in all other respects in an absolutely safe manner. And then abruptly with a word of consultation on the first hours of his presidency Biden, who most Canadians wished well, that was wish in incoming American president well. Slap this in the face and it was very offensive. And, you know, a lot of people saying, well, you know, we can retaliate in the export area with the United States. They send us plenty of things. And I mean, no one wants an argument with the U.S., but in the long relationship between the two countries, not a serious difference between them over 200 years. This was just a shocking development. It's just not how good friends amongst states behave to each other.

Is Roe v. Wade on the Ropes?

"We did know that the abortion case was taken up by the United States Supreme Court, the third branch of government article three, 9 justice on the Supreme Court in that way for a 150 years, the current regime wants to change it. And they want so essentially the issue is this is that Mississippi has passed a law that outlaws abortion at 15 weeks. The Mississippi solicitor general has decided to take that law and defend it through court, the pro abortionists, the people that are on the side that it's not a human life, it's just something else called the cells, the center for reproductive rights, they're arguing out in front of the Supreme Court. Now, I'll be very honest. My expectations were low. I'm a very pro life individual. I speak out about the scourge of abortion. We've done that on many different occasions here on this program and on our podcast. In fact, I encourage you to check out the Seth Gruber conversation from this last weekend. Connor, what great timing that we posted Seth Gruber when we did? We were holding on to that sets of dear friend. He is one of the most articulate pro life activists. I encourage you to check out that podcast, the best case against abortion you will hear. And I did not expect to have much action. I expected the justices actually Alito and Thomas I expected to probably draw a line. I didn't expect some of the middle justices like Gorsuch or Kavanaugh or Amy Coney Barrett to start to signal that they were somewhat sympathetic with the Mississippi abortion law. Now we have a lot of sound that I want to get to here. We have a lot of different kind of cuts that I want to get and the name of the case because you're going to be hearing this time and time again is Dobbs versus Jackson's women's health organization. Dobbs V Jackson and it's looking like for just kind of a bystander that roe versus wade might be on the ropes.

Obviously, we're watching very, very closely at the situation with el Macron. We know that even though Canada has very strong border measures now. We need vaccinations to come to Canada. We need pre departure tests. We do testing on arrival. There may be more we need to do, and we'll be looking at it very carefully. Are we going to ban more flights? Are we going to ban more many walked away? Because he doesn't know any more than you know other than Moderna CEO says we're screwed. Joe Biden, Dakota county, Minnesota went up there, and this is what he said cut number 20 from the president. As I told the American people yesterday, this new variant is a cause of concern, but not a cause to panic. On Thursday, I'll put forward a detailed strategy outline in how we've gone, we're going to fight this COVID this winter, not with shutdowns and lockdowns with more widespread vaccination. Boosters testing a much more. In the meantime. It sounds to me like deputy president Ron klain got the President Biden. And said, here's what we're going to do. It's what I'm doing. Urge everyone to get vaccinated because Delta is out there. And delta could kill you. We have about 850 deaths a day average right now in the United States. They're all Delta. And the vast majority of them are people who aren't vaccinated. You want to play poker with your life. I can't talk you out of it, but we're a long past having the government shut things down and closed schools because the cost of those are now well known and they're terrible.

To Fight Voter Fraud, Supreme Court Is the Last Hope

"So my question to Mike, I think was what is the difference now? Another was what do you believe you have now when you want to bring this to the Supreme Court that would make them say, yes, there is standing. Mike referred to the fact that because of the 50 50 split in the United States Senate with Kamala Harris being the tiebreaker if the election if the national election was either fraudulent or somehow was not what it was supposed to be, suddenly, because of her being the tiebreaker, it affects every state. So is that one of the main reasons that you're making or one of the main, the main argument that you're making or that you're hoping to make before the Supreme Court to say, you must look at this because the election outcome, in fact, affects the second part of our three part government. It affects the Senate. It affects the legislature. Is that the am I tracking with that? So that is one of that is one of two principal bases that we argue standing exists from at one state to sue the other defendant states in this action. And so you're exactly right. We have a very unique situation where the Senate is split evenly 50 50 and the vice president passed the tie breaking vote. If the vice president was not legitimately elected, and for purposes of standing, all well put allegations in the complaint are accepted as true. So you accept is true that the vice president was not legitimately elected. And when you analyze standing, is there a redress for that? And yes, because we have this unique situation of 50 50 even they split Senate with accepting as true the vice president was not legitimately elected, and casting the tie deciding vote the tie breaker, then that is an injury that all states

So republican officials after this sex law was rendered and more than a half dozen states across the country. Move to replicate the restrictive abortion ban. So what this is judicial reinforcement because the republicans are using non majoritarian means to enact their policy on the country. It is an asymmetric warfare. And so people like america's hero. Joe man- janner. Chris cinema all. We talked to the other side but us work together. I have a great idea. What is joe. Do nothing yeah. I've beyond everything else at them. Where's the ideas. Where's the beef. They don't have anything so on one. Hand the remote. Sit over your thank you. For buying his time as we leverage anti majoritarian means to do with what we want. And meanwhile joe mansion sells a fantasy a fantasy politics that fantasizes about a republican party and conservative movement does not exist does not exist. So you know. I've been having a back and forth about moderate democrats or whatever and i guess my thought. A moderate democrats is they need to wake a fuck up about what the other side of the aisle is. They they think on the other side of the aisles. Just more them no frendo. No these are people who are ambivalent about the capital riots. Fine and supportive of the abortion ban like there is no middle of the road. If you're banning we tried middle of the road row is the middle of the road rose. The middle of the row is the compromise in the compromises in good enough for them. So that there it is. I mean row actually tried to introduce in a sloppy imperfect way the concept of life as a spectrum. And i've i've i've talked about my brother on this show but i'm going to do it again. Because why can you talk about abortion. Chris i mean like look like say. It's about the not talk about it. Okay i'll take the gauntlet on this. I've been dealing with this life as a spectrum thing. For as long as i've had conscious thought so my memories are being in a nursing home. Where my brother's body was bob. Ross and the joy of painting being on the tv in a dark nursing home that were nursing home room. That was lit with. That was lit with fluorescent lights. And my brothers there. And i remember staring at my brother's body in their live kept alive with the food tube you know rotated but really no actual meaningful thought. No conscious thought no conscious communication stuff and going like he's not alive like me he's alive but he's not alive like me and i just had more and our full by mike. He's not alive. My parents were arguing with me but then they always kind of got what i was getting at too low. A thing that. I understood as a child as a child. Under the age of five life is spectrum and one of the things. They've always kind of a row. I get its flaws. And i recognize those flaws as force however the right to privacy thing that it is ultimately a medical decision that this person is undertaking especially at that part of the light spectrum makes perfect sense to me. The idea there is a lie. Spectrum makes perfect sense to me. We ought to be thinking about that broader context than even just during pregnancy. There's a light spectrum as you're alive because you you're alive and then you sort of fade away. That's the nature real. you know. I mean some of us fall off a cliff others. We wish fall for cliff but most of us language for awhile and our lights solely flickers out and we're less alive than we once were every day. That's so natural. And we know this and it's now gone so what. I have been thinking about this week number of different things one. We're where's corporate america whereas capitalism this one. and how long can they released it on the sidelines. With all these lady bosses. I don't think that this one is going to be so easy. I think there's going to be a real push by companies to consider leaving texas. Because essentially their female employees are not getting equal treatment under the law in the state of texas and if they they're making a values statement and if they don't ignore it they're also making a value statement. I hope they don't ignore it. Another group of people who i hope do not ignore this who albany new orleans so far are the nba players. Hey lebron james and other members of the nba who liked to scold all the rest of us that we ought to and your right to do so and you are right to do so friends that we ought to be standing up side by side with you. All to fight alongside on important matters matters that i support wither. You right now friends lebron. I googled earlier today. I was like okay. I made that comment online. But like i don't want to get on the air ago. Lebron saying anything about this shit. What the fuck lebron. Unless i was actually zero on the fact that lebron said nothing on this not a peep lebron soldarity. My friends saw dairy mon fair. We need all hands on deck right now. If you want to talk about other issues that you get up. Or this i get you want you pick and choose your battles but like gotta remember who you're asking to stand alongside you and who's been standing outside you and friends help friends god. Can we please learned that lesson one of these days so it helps you gotta help them back. That's a learning afghanistan. Lebron james hasn't learned yet here. So those are two people who are two groups of people who i'd like to see maybe step it up a little bit more the nba players. Look i get maybe politics too complicated on this. That's the thing they need to do. Some serious inward-looking on here friends because again it's about a gal -tario and if we're going to say i want to be treated equal. Yea women we'll be treated equal to sir. You won't be treated equal. I get it. I want you to be able to irby to be treated equal. Ever you know you got to be a commonly held view here again for those who don't feel this way about the people think well what's going on. i mean look inward just. I can't do it for you you you you got to do that. But but no look in So i think it's going to be really interesting to see how this affects the midterms. I know and i have been aware of people people involved with the show here..

"It's both sides at this point and people i talk to here are saying i just don't know what to believe anymore because you know the even if they're a democrat they saved as like the. Cdc goes back and forth three times in a week so they don't know what to believe. They got their shot. There is done with a just get on with their life and whatever happens happens. It's interesting to hear your perspective of what you're seeing narrow versus what being christie heeren urges horrified. Yeah i mean. I'm legitimately worried. That i'm willing to suffer some attrition of students like i think there's a real chance i'm going to lose at least one or two students from those like when my request is essentially please do not make me liable for making other children's sake please. Not put me out of work. Because i will not have any money and i'm not going to come to you to ask me ask you to subsidize me but like realistically if you're going to sit there and be like what the freemen good and you get me sick with kovin. It because you didn't want on this like hell sue your ass giving me over. Nineteen these lease. Speak with a lawyer and see where that can go. No that's ridiculous all right. He's next. I'm open with this. I'm going to open with this. Because i think the obvious impulse for people will be volunteer. This the united states as nearly thirty eight hundred nuclear warheads according to nuclear analysts which is an obscene amount of nuclear weapons. There's no good reason to have that main nuclear weapons and we have more than enough to blow up the planet many times over and probably more than enough to ensure that the entire united states will in some day succumb radiation poisoning. god willing. I look forward to that day of cova. Doesn't get me the radiation. Might i say all this. Because the impulse as i bring up this next story will be. Yes but the united states has nuclear weapons. So i just wanna cut that off the past right now. The has to many nukes. We should not have as many nukes as we have. We need to do more to get rid of the nukes in order to encourage people to not pursue nuclear weapons. We need to have fewer nuclear weapons. It's insane that we hand ring about iran when we have nearly four thousand nuclear weapons. It's insane how much we hand ring about. North korea when we have thirty eight hundred nuclear weapons. The odds just sort of say we're more likely to avenue clear. Error that well okay. Developing countries more like they have a nuclear just because they're stupid and they're not stupid but like unaware of how to handle nuclear technology and nuclear technology dangerous. You're running like a crackerjack Mid twentieth centuries sort of military like like north korea is in. You're experimenting around with radiation. Like our military didn't mid twentieth century. Things tend to go wrong because you don't have enough technology to do things safely. I know this from studying united states. history Yeah go ahead robber. I'm you learned by mistake but doing that. With nuclear materials. Nuclear weapons is a great. That's not good. No so i say this because our next story really focuses in on china expanding out their nuclear capabilities and they seem to be doing so right now so china it's already been known has about two hundred nuclear warheads again. United states thirty eight hundred i. I'm aware however the issue here we are talking about. China is that they have been developing out nuclear silos in xinjiang province which is the closest to europe closest to the united states would be a fantastic place for them to launch nuclear weapons and projects nuclear weapons into the western hemisphere. Like that would be where you'd want it to be. And they appeared to be currently underway as with developing yet another nuclear site which would likely bring it likely double their nuclear capabilities. So on one hand you're tempted to go. Well they're going from two hundred to four hundred in. The united states has thirty eight hundred nuclear weapons granted. Another way of looking at this story though is that in the midst of the corona virus.

"Just somebody. Somebody like knocking out. The cooling system. In one of their one of those server farms wouldn't be the worst thing that ever happened For i like the honesty of politics press conference. Yeah i think the one thing that is important. is i. Need this to be a sizable enough action. That forces putin to talk about it and like it becomes like juxtaposed. Like trump and helsinki. And then you have a solo vitamer putin like pissing and moaning about how joe biden. I on believable. That could happen. And i would love for biden to be like on a jack. No way i mean here here. We have so like in in our country. That's entertaining ourselves to death like we have so much like there's like soft soft malarkey targets like the russians could shutdown disneyworld. And it would be a big fucking deal. It would be a huge deal. Like knocked the power out to disneyworld like but i feel like the like all of russian industry. I don't know what we could knock out there. That wouldn't have a serious body. How like you're you shut down. I gue- natural gas line. There knowing knowing the fell safes that. I'm sure gas from. Yeah so. I mean shutting down the oil expeditions. Their actual oil mining rigs like if you went after the cybersystems inside of all their oil and petroleum rigs. And like you started. Seeing unlike roast row sniffs. The one gazprom was the one that they wanted to have a putz. Oh what's his name. Carter page. Yeah rose snaps the one that was originally yukos and that was the big oil company. And then i got turned into row. Snapped like yeah. I think you saw a massive cyberattack on the petroleum's like the cybersystems those petroleum mining operations. That would that would send shockwaves to rush. I just that would change their tune. That's that's just all of those all of those industries like there's there'd be a higher a higher likelihood of a body count around something like that. I mean i was just trying to think about like what does what does russia do that we could safely shut down like make the trains in russia. Not run on time. I they run on time and the thing is the cold to. Yeah yeah no. I this the other thing too. I mean just doesn't care about this. Like russia is really lives on the ever constant like thin line of like.

"It there and then ship it a mexico to be finished and then bring his ear. But it's not about trader manufacturing. It's just earn manipulate. And all the while. The chinese government was sort of like basically waiting. There biding their time. You know what i mean. Just start stockpiling their chips. Get their semiconductor chips. But bob their money like as we kept sending jobs over there. We were getting greg changer. Though it's great you know. China's great you know above and by the way this is going to change them. Don't worry i know you guys are worried that you know. China has nuclear weapons that they're trying to develop space program like they're pretty sophisticated computers and they seem to have a national surveillance system for one point five billion people in his credit score. I know you're worried about all those things but don't worry we're changing them with capitalism. I know. I know that they've been an authoritarian art of the world for the last six thousand years. The richard nixon is really smarter than all that. He's got this on locked. Let's just go with. This is a country with an imperial tradition and expansion expansionist tradition a strongman tradition whether it is kings into emperors and also necessarily. So this is why like the boxer. I mean i don't oversimplify. The last seventy five years of chinese communist history here but like part of the reason why the boxer rebellion was really good doomed to end up like maoism or someone is is because like democracy is sort of a learned thing like i mean like when we did the of goldberg thing that didn't one thing that gobert got totally right is like why did stick in america. It's because everyone who's coming over here was the that was a seed that was in their head when they were coming over you had like minded settlers is so i mean i think i think why does it take in in some of these communist revolutions. Well i don't think you can just go from monarchy to communist dictatorship of the proletarian. I think what happens is when you do that. You end up. In dictatorship you get halfway there the dictator ship. You get a dictator. I mean also ross powers before centralized power. You know what i mean. Sooner or later you know the best government. The world's benevolent dictator but sooner or later that guy died every every marcus. Really as yields accommodates odd. So go back to the justice department. Here merrick garland backed away from a comprehensive review of the actions by the trump justice department. Once again the by the administration really running away from the bigger issues here garland noted. However that the department's inspector general was already investigating related issues including secons attempts to overturn the election whether trump had improperly used apartments power to investigate and prosecute just one note of a thing that they might want to look into trump has aids in two thousand nine hundred to look at what just the justice department and the fcc could do to punish saturday night live in other late night shows for mocking him. I'm bringing this up one this one. Not because it's major but because is extraordinarily petty. I wanna be clear. He watched a rerun of saturday. Night live in march twenty nineteen and then trump pleaded that the episode was quote not funny slash no talent and that kept quote knocking getting the same person emperor disease me over and over without so much of a mention of quote the other side of because you know when someone's doing an impersonation of you need to be fair and balanced and show the other side then ends vote should federal elections commission and or fcc look into this according to people voted with the matter after tweeting that trump then asked advisors and lawyers about what the fcc the court systems and the department of justice could do to investigate the shows trump had to repeatedly be advised. The shows are satire which is a form of protected speech. That's not surprising at all. I mean there's there's no part of that that's what what should be. Shocking to people is that we are at a point where this is like does not beggars belief in the slightest like donald trump. We all know absolutely one hundred percents would watch a rerun of something making fun of him and go like how can i get revenge on those bastards. Well in like you were saying before you know look at should we deal with saudi arabia or saturday night live. I don't it's kind of a toss up. It's hard to pick what they're basically the same right. Okay now too vivid. More serious things that i do think needs to be looked into right. It involves mark meadows here. This is fairly. He let me read a little bit of this. This is from keep track a celebrated on celebrated on read. It does really well source stuff. they're not doing as much during the vitamin which would do more but this during the trump was really well done on december fourteenth way twenty electors in each state certified the deal the electoral college votes. It was also the day that trump announced that bill bar will be resigning Be replaced by jeffrey rosen. Newly obtained emails revealed that less than an hour. Earlier trump sent an email to rosen. We're talking points claiming quote intentional fraud and corruption of the voting machines in michigan. The email documents concluded that michigan cannot certify for binding trump then urge the justice department to file a lawsuit with the supreme court to nullify the election using official channels and a private attorney depressure. Doj officials. This is probably might be rudy. Might be the other one sydney powell on december. Twenty ninth trump sent rosen the acting deputy. Ag richard donahue in the acting solicitor general. Jeffrey wall to draft a lawsuit asking the courts. Declare that the electoral college votes. Were cast in georgia michigan wisconsin. Arizona nevada in pennsylvania cannot be counted..

"Ladies and gentlemen hello again. Welcome back to. Don't worry about the government my name. Is chris november. No i'm coming to you from the editing room. Now on the other side of my thirty fifth birthday that's right. I have left the coveted demo. The eighteen thirty four demo. I'm now thirty five years old and this episode was part one of i. Guess what we can call my two part birthday extravaganza. We taped part one on my birthday proper. Which was june eleventh here and we did a rundown of the news of the week. I wanted to play catch up because we haven't ran down headlines in a minute here and there are a lot of things going on especially on the legal front as you'll see and originally the intent was for this part of the show to go twenty thirty minutes and be just kind of a fast breeze around the headlines but it was a different assemblage of people which led to a different conversation and that ended up going about seventy five minutes. And that's the standard runtime of but don't worry about the government these days so i decided let's call that an episode and we'll come back for what was the main course which is on the unidentified aerial phenomenon. Eight tip of what might be better known as you foes if you're into that we actually planned on doing the show starting in mid to late april and this is something. That's been on the list of things that i've wanted to do on. Don't worry about the government for quite some time. Ever since tom delonge organization gotta deal with the government wherein the government is giving them seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars at the start of that. The fact that tom delonge went from doing this fringe thing to getting these videos involving the nimitz incidence to the government formalizing of relationship with to the stars many things have happened that have made the uap story in interesting. one that i've followed through the last several years here. And i thought we were out an interesting point to have a discussion. There've been some good documentaries out and that's really what this episode that will be coming up later this week. We're gonna be taping it on wednesday it's going to be centered on on identified and phenomenon and also mirage men so on one part of the conversation. It's going to be taking a look at i. Guess roughly speaking to kind. I'll put an opening buttress on this or an opening button. Buttress is not the right word button. On what will be that conversation. I'll be coming up on wednesday so we don't have to do it then so like roughly speaking. If you're not familiar with the store you have. You are photos. So let's say up to the x. Files era the kind of pointed delineation would be like two thousand four with the nimitz incident and find out more about that on the show here on wednesday and then we have everything that happened. Kinda pose nimitz Up to and including harry reid helping to create the formation of the tip which studied a lot of these aerial phenomenon. Harry reid using his power as the senate majority leader to keep that organization running and still being involved in even in the twilight phases of his life in with some considerable health challenges. Right now so you have sort of what we know about like little green men and all that sort of thing and stuff that's closer to the bigfoot spectrum and then stuff that is of a different ordering a different magnitude or at least that's what my reading of these events is That certainly is a bone of contention among other panelists on the show. We'll get into that more on wednesday but joining me on. Today's show is robert lindsay and daniel. So let's go ahead and get into the news of the week. I hope you enjoy it. I hope that. I haven't aged out of being cool or if anything i was never cool and that was evidenced by the fact that. I'm doing a podcast. I'm a birthday all right. Thank you guys so much for supporting the show if you like what we're doing patriot dot com slash. Dwa oem by the way if you want to see the video version of this and you're free cider.

"Like you have March for life. What's about it's about fucking marching for life? The end you go to mortgage for our lives. You'll end up interviewing Kurds like I did this is that right? Yeah. To March for our lives Dallas here. I actually did an interview with a group of Kurds. You know, I'm supportive of the Kurdish. 'cause unfortunately, the audio didn't record. Well, my phone. So it was kind of unusable. But yeah, I mean, you you don't necessarily expect to be talking about Kurdish independence at the March for our lives rally. Right. But anytime you get with the progressive base. Like, there's just so many things that they are kind of linked into that. Like, well, why not just throw them all in at once? And well, the reason why is because if you're not an enthusiastic supporter of every single thing on that thread, that's a really horrible way of setting up the deal all savers Pacific, Lee wise because of negativity buys, it's really well known psychological effect it operates partee. Regularly strongly in politics, which is that you don't look at things like you'll take the average of all the good and bad stuff in there and make a decision you're going to look for the thing that makes you the least comfortable, and then say this dealbreaker, and if it is you don't support it. So it is a really bad idea for the Democrats to be trying to sell this as a complete grand bargain if you want to slice off climate change, plus income inequality. I do think that there's clearly a synergy between like that. And some green new jobs program. Obviously, there's a bunch of good ideas and there for that. But you don't want to say, oh, and by the way, Medicare for all free college for all universal basic income. Like, I support all those things butts. You wanna do them separately?.

"Yeah. Hello again. Welcome back to don't worry about the government mining is Chris November. No. And joining me again on the show today is Sean Frieder Sean fair. Welcome back. Don't worry about the government. How are you? Chris good. Glad to be talking about some of the stuff. Yeah. All right. So we're not going to do the thing. We've been thinking about this week. We've already done that. So let's just get right into it. I want to talk about the state of the more probe and the controversies surrounding Pamana for more talk a little bit about the move into the Middle East. The more probe is no longer Trump. Russia. It's no longer quote, unquote, Russia gate of for for those of you who are still using those parlance is the more probe is also now moved into Israel, Anna love ties in with this guy named George neater on solar and talk a little bit about that. But but before we get into that. I I wanna to start with what I'm sure everyone's been waiting to hear. About which is this BuzzFeed article. So boy this BuzzFeed story drops on Friday morning, Thursday nights. And the story is essentially that President Donald Trump directed. His attorney Michael Cohen to lie to congress about the Moscow tower product, the headlines distinctly puts together Leary a little bit of it. President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to to federal law enforcement officials to federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter involved in an investigation of the matter is interesting, which suggests that there's more than one Trump also support a plan set by Cohen to visit Russia during the presidential campaign in order to personally meet Vladimir Putin in jumpstart the tower negotiations quote, make it happen. The sources said Trump told Cohen now. These special counsel's office respond on the store. This is kind of a big deals like the first time cars really spoken on the matter. And what I also thought was interesting is this Washington poster. We'll talk about later where it looks like car has been directed by Muller to go and talk a little bit to the media about this particular thing a little bit more get their version of events out. But Carr said buzzfeed's description of specific statements to the federal council's office and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office regarding Michael Cohen congressional testimony are not accurate so they knocked down or they have been disputing one part of this. But there are other parts of this. They're not disputing it. All so one thing I think that the critics of this have been kind of missing on here little bit is that it's not as the SEO knocked down the entirety of this article. They actually knocked down very specific parts of it. This is really important special counsel's office learned about Trump's directive for Coen to lot of congress. This would be special counsel specific through. Interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump organization and internal company e mails text messages and a cash a of other documents Cohen then acknowledged those instructions during his interviews to that office. So stop the read here for a second. What do I think is going on here? So I think the source of the story, Sean is almost certainly the southern district of New York. And I and I think what's going on here are fruits from the raid of Michael Cohen's office now about six years ago. Michael Cohen's office was raided and one of the.

"I don't know we have enough things to disagree about that are real that like to come up with hypotheticals that make us angry seems a little superfluous. Yes. I just I thought this is not I still don't like bench appear one lick. But I think he's completely one hundred percent totally getting fucked here. Yeah. I agree. I didn't know he was losing advertisers. I mean, even beyond the like, you know, how did you not know use a social conservative like he's he's making a dumb point about like being proline wouldn't kill a baby. That's it. He's making an exaggerated. Point like, this is not like one. Ben Shapiro doing being antisemitic. I think his wish bonafides or at least well established if nothing else I think only a ridiculously absurdist unsure -able read of Ben Shapiro would lead you to believe. Yeah. You're right. All pro-lifers are Nazis. Yeah. And this is another thing that generally has to stop happening in politics. Symbolic politics is like if you have thirty good reasons to go after someone adding one not good reason doesn't make your position stronger. It makes it weaker. Yeah. It really really hurts you so now it's time to move to the next segment assessing the contenders as they announce we Brigham down and this week, Sean freighter really dream team. Maybe they'll unify make a harmony ticket. So that I can put my head through a fucking wall. Tolsey Gabbard in Kirsten gillibrand both announced that they are running for president this week. Sean who do you like least between Tulsi Gabbard occurs to julep read. That's easiest I'm on record in this show thinking like a year ago. I think saying that Jila brand might make some sort of like moderate third way thing would be like maximizing all potential like or minimize in the distance between all the different groups within the Democratic Party. I think that her political values weakened a lot over the past year for number of reasons at this point. I just think frankly, we have much better candidates need to worry about her. This one's easy for me, though, Till's gabbert is my least favorite of those two because tolsey Gabbard is my least favourite matchup between her and basically any other democrat is far as I can think of. Yeah. Even tolsey Gabbard versus Donald Trump is a tough choice for B. It's tough to give myself a motivational speech to go and vote for Tulsi Gabbard because I was talking you about this before the show, but this is to me the right analogy, she's like a. Critical black hole of bad ideas, questionable associations, questionable beliefs. And I find of all of the candidates are going to be running this time that that have been hypothetically floated I find there, of course, intellectual tensions between beta in his base and Bernie in his base, and Jill brand whoever is her bays and whoever's base, but there's no grander intellectual tension than the dog ID anti Muller progressive Jimmy door chop. Oh, trap house left and tolsey Gabbard as a base figure because I was watching this week Jimmy door doing this big grand defense of tolsey Gabbard. If you're not familiar with his brand of politics shows called aggressive progressives. He thinks Russia gates total hoax thinks it's a big distraction things we need real progressives. And that the real issue inside of the Democratic Party. If you take him on face value. Is that the parties Dopp and progressive enough, and we need to get rid of the Democrats name only and replace them with cure candidates, like tolsey Gabbard. And then okay. So the thing is she was against gay marriage for vocally. Right. She was so that's that's her Killys. He'll and Glenn Greenwald tweets this out, but she's not anymore, by the way. And let's remember that everybody's hero the black Santa Claus. Obama Brock Obama was. Against gay marriage until win about five minutes ago. When did you when did he come around if you hours it's been when did he finally come around to that? Right. Because he ran on against he wasn't for gay marriage. When he ran that's for sure, right? Okay. So Glenn Greenwald says do past anti-gay statements and positions permanently besmirch person's character. Or does evolving and changing and repudiating those past positions absolve them of their sins. It'd be good if we had a consistent standard on this question. And I think to look into tolsey Gabbard and try to make narrative of her as a progressive is absolutely insane..

"And so the easiest way for the pendulum to kind of swing back around would be you know, for younger and middle aged people actually start showing up ballot box. But regardless we still have identified this problem of it's absurd to ask an eighty year old to feel like they have a state Kolding position in the next forty years. Right. Like they're going to die in the next ten to fifteen years. Probably I mean outside of even like, you know, life span, which should be the most the strongest producer of this affected. You. You can observe this. Even in the short term where I mean, you look at the way that management and finance incorporations has gone in the past two or three decades the model because there's there's rapid mobility from company to company if you're an executive company X, you would expect ten years from now a probably be an executive at company wild with a higher position. So if you don't really have a loyalty to this thing, you're you're gonna be leaving the ship before it actually realizes the fruits of a lot of the decisions you've made well, then you're highly incentivized to stack for short term gains rather than for long term gains. And I think that I think there's a lot more to for instance, you know, opposition to climate change is a big issue amongst old people, then like, I'm not going to be around to deal with the effects, but I do think on a psychological level. None that frame point matter. Yeah. I mean, I would think on the margins. If I don't know what the numbers are. But if like two thirds of people sixty five and older right now think the climate change is not having shouldn't. Do anything about it. If they didn't have that thing if you just gave them extra fifty years to live snap your fingers right now. I think that number would drop it wouldn't drop by a lot. But it would go down sixty percents. Fifty five percent you'd have from that. And I just think that's just one example of like reprioritizing for now when we should be prioritizing for twenty years from now, and one group of us has the incentives to do that and the other doesn't. So the thing I've been thinking about is sort of weird wrap around thing. So obviously, we have the government shutdown going on and there's an intractable nature to the government shutdown. I think it's a real case study in business negotiation, if I was teaching a business negotiation class at a collegiate level, I would be using this government shutdown example in my teachings for the next fifteen twenty years because it's textbook example of essentially, the algebra using is like when I'm playing fantasy basketball and someone. That makes me a trade offer for very good players on my team in exchange for just the garbage on their bench. And obviously we all have wishes in life, and we would like all of our wishes to come true. But the reason I don't smash that accept button and sabotage my team is that I am a rational actor in need to protect my position. And I feel like Trump has created intractable in the Goshi -ation problem in the sense that the wall is a totem. It's a simple we're talking about with the wall at this point and right down to the dollar amount. We're actually talking about now, right? At one point. We were talking about twenty five billion for the wall, and even most people's estimates. Was that like that was done even anywhere near enough for quote, unquote? The wall was going to be closer like forty two seventy billion to to actually do a wall on the southern border. If you're really going to do that. So what we've now gotten into is a symbolic amount of money around a symbolic concept. And where this intersects with Joe, let is I think we need to stop making everything fucking symbols. And we need to start dealing with them as actual text. So a saw the Gillette Mun razors at and I don't really I don't care about the toxic masculinity component of it. But I think that the error here is that you don't need to make a razor blade. A symbol for something. Other than this is what you're shaving yourself with this morning..

"That's gonna run clearly on the left side of things. So naturally that would normally pull centre-left people in from the Democrats over to him. But this is also an election where there's a lot of Republicans have been doing a lot of knows holding about Trump for a very long time. And so is sort of adult in the room. Centrist is someone that might appeal to those people as well. So. Potential opportunities for spoiler. If there's a big push for one of those demographics, not the other if they split them and cancel out. That's the only way I could see that not being the biggest spoiler scenario. Yeah. I think a lot of that phenomenon too can be attributed to the fact that there is no quote unquote, moderate Trump position like you can't make Trump light. Right. Like the Trumpism it's about the intensity on one level of curious how he chooses to run as well. Who wears he campaigning for the votes that he's getting is he going to Leech off of the swing state limelight or is he going to carve zone, passive speak? If if he does the typical third party move where you squander all of your money in swing states for a, you know, so that you definitely have some chance at. The national stage just by being in a place where the the the national attention is if if you're not interested in creating your own audience and just leaching off of the the swing state limelight. So to speak. I. I don't know where where does he where does he poach from an really who uses Samba's, the scapegoat, the quickest and like Sean says, let when you're a centrist. You're not really in center because the center of politics isn't in the between the two parties, there's the kind of the center party. And then there's the party to the right of that. So when you say centrist that's going to make the DNC more afraid of you than the GOP. And and so this when you already know you're going to have a far left in a far right party marginalizing the vote so to speak on the Democrats should be more frayed of them. Yeah. I think he poses a larger problem. Hypothetically speaking in this is deeply hypothetical. But I think that the third party challenger like Schultz poses a big problem to the anti. Coalition. I think the rhetorical canyon. So I think both you guys are right. And I think I'm also right? And I just want everyone to be right here. But, but I think there's actually a way to kind of harmonize all three of these views. So the rhetorical canyon between Trump and the Democratic Party it it's just a shooter cliff face like you can't modulate yourself for Torah cly and still be within the Trump realm. You have to do it intense. You have to be like Steve king if you're going to run like that. But I think Brian's also right in the sense that you know, you do have to parties and neither of them are particularly left. And so when you say someone's running as a centre-left candidate what you're really saying is that they're running as a on democrat. They're running his new coke. And I think then there's the third problem here of where would a centrist candidate be able to find television coverage between MSNBC CNN and FOX it's favorable to them. Because if you can't get that. We we've seen that be a real problem in the past. This is something that I think also Brian brings up which is interesting, you know, brains talking about sort of the the where he's going to run, and, you know, this this'll be a transition in a second talk about some of Brian's ideas for improving third party politics. It's worth kind of thinking before we even get to that just say that independent wealthy candidates running sort of from the center are going to have a very different look at third party strategy than an actual third party..

"But I think this is a moment where people are really sensitive to sing the party weighing. Into much, and I think they know to but out so I mean, even with this this wide open field. The fact that even seeing this many people interested means that there's no party leader. That's telling a lot of people right now. We've already got our two or three people that were interested in we don't want anymore. Thanks for playing go home. It's means that there's basically saying to people like, I don't know you wanna throw your hat marine. Let's see what happens. We'll we'll see how you do. So they seem like they're open moment right now, they're even talking about doing the debates is essentially like a randomized controlled trial where they randomly paired different groups of people together, which is the scientists that thing is like fucking crepe, people randomize ING things. Correct. That's fate. You you do it. So I think that they're almost like clinically trying to not put their finger on the scale yet. There's gonna be a moment where they're going to have to probably if they don't like the way things are going, but they're going to wait as long as they can do that. I hope that they put all of the candidates on an island and have a weekly competition. Wherein? They have to make alliances and providing cycle. Yeah. Yeah. No. I actually think you learn a lot from that process. Like. But I really think you would figure out who can like very quickly come up with wily schemes to get what they want done versus like who's just kind of a pretty face that would actually be kind of fun. I think Erste Jila would do pretty well does democratic survivor island. Yeah. If she would do well Bryant, what do you say about hostage, taking does much credit survive Riley? I think a lot of the Bernie supporters are already on their heels to feel alienated and. In just a just a point of of powered the people who are willing to walk away, the easiest are the ones who have the most power as far as this is what we see with Trump in the government shutdown right now. What does he have any power at all? Despite all these political misteps is that he doesn't actually care about the outcome. Right. And so do you want to call the bluff on the the Bernie demographic? Do you want to lead them down a path where they feel once bitten twice shy? How do you? How do you? How can you predictably have Bernie lose? But not turn Bernie voters against you. Who has to win alternative Bernie in order for that not to happen? And I think what a lot of the. Free pre primary frostless is who can we nominate that won't piss off the Bernie crowd's. Yeah. I think that's really true at Amin. If you're if you're the Democrats, the other thing, you gotta hope for is that Bernie Sanders does a bad job when he gets out on the campaign trail that he manages to do something that is a self immolating event. Sanders is a very politically savvy guy. He didn't get to where he is right now just on care charisma and good looks alone. Right. Like he he's clearly figured out how to play the game. So I think betting on the self immolation is not very likely, but that that would be a thing that the Democrats would need because they need to make it look like their hands are clean of whatever lost Sanders has or I mean, you know, Conversely, I think you know, if Sanders wins the primary right in twenty twenty then I think the Democrats Wolton. Get on board. I think the one thing that the Democratic Party doesn't have to worry about is hostage. Taking voters from the establishment side. They're they're not gonna that's true. Now, the establishment will support whoever the hell you're not gonna lose the vet. Exactly. So so why listen to them? Now. It's an issue. I, you know, I hear the arguments frankly, from both sides of the Democratic Party and kind of I get with both of them are coming from. But to be completely honest since like, why listen to the democratic establishmentarian when they're going to shut up in eater shit sandwich, regardless and they've kind of conditioned themselves to do that. And then conversely, the democratic establishmentarian says why listen to the verdict Sanders supporter and treat them as a reasonable party..

"But when you're actually doing the map here you need to get to two seventy without having Florida. I think that's the right strategy for Democrats also this if we're talking about Democrats, Texas place strategy, I think that the idea that we're talking about Bego, and we're not talking about Julian Castro is fucking incentive. I think that Julian Castro if you wanna talk about the Texas model forward the Texas model forward. Oh, yeah. Yeah. The Texas model is is is going heavy there. And we have a guy Julian Castro who is a very well liked very popular mayor who has some experience within the federal government. He should have been speaker. What I'm saying man, like the Democrats that they were smart would have made that guy speaker. I totally agree. This guy like I mean little Boehner for this guy. I mean, the political side is wet dream. If you want to run a candidate metaphors. Phone you want to have ideally like in the Democratic Party now because we know it's very clear from how people were Phillies dependent on who's actually running. And the reason why Latinos in Asians, turn out a raids in general elections vote only forty five percent rates if they voted up near the rates of everyone else Republican get someone that actually activates that Latino base. I just think you have to actually give them a good reason to come out and vote for someone maters a candidate for this year. And I would include him actually is my third pick for a stealthy pretty successful in his job. And and pretty reasonable down to earth. Kind of like, yeah, I like Castro when I sing I don't think that the Bego strategy transfers over to Castro. I it's just Castro has not really put his foot down to establish brand brand build like like even even in Okasha court. Think about this Okaz. You court has probably has better name. Rick. Mission than Julian Castro does and that's really stupid because Julia Castro. I mean, the other thing is as we're doing with this government shutdown, and we're now debating about a wall, I defy you to make the case that this would be going better for Trump. If he was debating chewing Castro the Latino from Texan from Texas to bring it back to Moore. I I think what the Democrats are counting on is that if Beto with Hispanic first name is not running against someone with a Hispanic last name. He's got a shot. Yeah. I think that's true too. Yeah. And he speaks he does speak. Good Spanish like he doesn't do. It like crews does he actually has Latino route. So I I mean, the the interesting thing will be to see what the polling numbers say. In terms of how Latinos taking a beta because I think that you know, key level of the strength of his candidacy will be looking at that indicator. Do. They look at him and go bagel Rourke. He's one of us. We're on board with this guy. And this is our guy or do they look at beta roll Rourke and say kind of feels like a white guy. He he doesn't actually feel like Latino whatever that means they're going to have to read the tea leaves on that. 'cause they hope alone is going to carry him. He's he's got to. I mean, he has to walk this probably most of the advantages of the baggage that beta carries with him. I still salt the about the fact that he wasn't moved up leadership. And instead optically the leadership battle right now is like Steny Chuck Nancy James Clyburn, the average age of democratic leadership is in their mid seventies. As they go up and scrap against Donald Trump. My my thing I've been thinking about for the week was very nearly a way to keep Lee out of wack right now..

"I mean, he he has now one hundred percent taken credit for the government shutdown said that he'd be totally fine with that going on forever said that it's fine because it would mostly affect Democrats. So I mean, like the optics, Sean, Sean, it's more than that. It's that he spoke to the government workers. And they said this is great. Keep going, sir. Right. Yeah. Exactly. This many fine of your told him. We'll take furloughs for years. Just we want that wall. That's the most important thing to us not existing. So, you know. State we've caused so much harm to the country that it's about time for us. This is four. You know, he's he's Doug himself into this whole end. The Democrats are sitting here saying this is a fucking gift. You know, he's taken already one hundred percent of the responsibility for this. The thing that he's shutting them gathering for is something that like poll after poll shows that like is that in popular not with the bare majority, but like with actually a pretty solid majority of the public. It's maybe a third that actually care enough to actually wanna see the single forward in. So he shutting down the government potentially forever over something the public. Actively doesn't want is not something that the Democrats are gonna interrupt him. While he's making that particular mistake. The scary thing to me is as a political scientists were really walking into uncharted territory here because precisely because I don't think he has much of his actual strategic bones body. He doesn't understand that. He has no leverage in this position. He doesn't really understand the position he's in. So I don't see him. I think it's it's it's not even when he does the same motives either. Right. Like, it doesn't really matter. I I guess the whole point of my weird TV scheme narrative here is. I came to that based off of his disposition of he doesn't really care about reopening the government now, he doesn't there's no urgency. No. I mean, the the weirdness just to begin with of someone who's the head of the executive branch being giddy about primarily the executive branch getting shutdown is just totally bonkers. I mean, we're totally out to sea with that. But more importantly as he doesn't seem to understand the optics of the situation. You know, you saw what the normal Republican president would have done when you know a couple of weeks ago. The Republican Senate tried to pass a measure that would have just basically prevented the government shutdown from happening. And they thought he was going to sign it. And then he said, no, well, they were doing that. Because, you know, President Bush for sure any other president would have signed that we wouldn't even be talking about that. But he doesn't seem to get the negative side of this balance sheet, and he doesn't really seem to care even understand what basic public opinion is. So all the guardrails that are usually. Here where I'd say, you know, these shutdowns they come and go the will be a couple of weeks in one side realize it's bad for it. Not this time. I actually do not know what happens this time. I do not know what taught looks like. And so this is like this kind of shorter, Tori, just watching this happen unfold. And we'll see how this goes. I have utterly. No idea. Yeah. It remains really unclear to me to go ahead, Brian. What's the value of Cory Gardner, and Susan Collins two names, I do know how to pronounce by the way. What is the value of them saying that they're willing to vote on this without wall money? I think it shows Trump and more importantly, Mitch McConnell who has been very very clever in not being a part of this discussion this week really at all at his deflected for this has also very clever where he's like, well, really this is a debate between the Senate minority leader, and it's Pelosi. This is really all a democrat thing. Never by that the Senate majority leader who was just picked up additional votes. But I think what it shows is that there is not necessarily going to be the votes there in the Senate for a hard driving package that that there's a limited amount of patients among the Republicans who are up for reelection in twenty twenty to indulge this in no small part of Collins twenty twenty bid for sure she sees the right? Yeah. She knows what happened. To everything in twenty eighteen and so she and this might be a transition into talking about Mitt Romney..

"I mean, I I've been disappointed by the leadership, but in infinite number of times, but the incentive calculus here for them is clear enough that like they. Have apps. They can right. They can't because their base will be set on fire. More importantly, they have a massive a massive chip here. I mean, this is about as good of a leverage position as they think and really quickly just to forget on this register dress. What you're saying before? I wish I could say look, it would be a lot more of a fun world for me as a political sectors to live in thing leg. Okay. Trump's moves. Here's his strategy. And here's what he's going for. I think there's a huge difference between something might have perceived strategic value versus like this. Why he's doing it? And like I just wish I could. But I can't think of anything Trump like I do not think there is actual strategic bone in his head. I think you know, you know, what I call with a tire in his mouth. And that's about it, Sean. It's TV thinking, it's the helping you get when you sit and you watch to budge fucking TV all day and usual, all maybe that could work, and I'm telling you there. There's a river. Of thought. Right. The stream of consciousness of Donald Trump. What what what is the water in that reverse is the TV he watches the TV all day, and he watches the panels watch a lot of MSNBC to he calibrates he watches a lot at a koala. And so does his buddy Hannity, but then there's like other bits of detriments in the water floating about this might come from a phone call with air to one this one might come from the weird little side meeting at NATO stuff is just whatever detriment to be floating around in the water. That is an apt way of describing it so yeah, I mean, I think it's a TV game. This is his nightly whiplash tying America to the train tracks move. So I mean, there's a scheme here. It's just not much of one. And he's he's completely removed any leverage that he had. I mean, I've never seen someone. I don't thinking in all volative back themselves into a corner hilariously. He's backed himself in. This one..

"All that is not popular not the way he's doing it. There's a real issue about how this is going to get done who's actually going to execute it whether or not he's gonna fall through on it. And of course, he doesn't wanna look weak on that front, and depending on depending on how this deal was structured up. There would be people internationally Saudi Arabia Turkey other players in the region the series potentially who have phone calls Trump about how this is going to play out. We know Saudi Arabia and Turkey specifically. And if he screws that up that could screw up other things for Donald Trump. So he needs to handle that. So you got the government shutdown. This allows also cue up the debate once again about the wall, so we could get back there and the Democrats have their back against the wall because they've conceded or not conceited. But like they've been left standing at the altar so many times on this wall. The thing to kind of give Trump and optical win. I think actually. Would hurt Nancy Pelosi's power base? And if you want to that would be a legitimate, existential threat to her because now the progressive and stuff could come at her and say, she's not taking care of x y and z, and this would be a very very top of the list of x y and z item. So I think you've got that going on. But I think Trump in in his kind of warped mind also believes that if he does this government shutdown this will distract the Democrats such that they won't be able to investigate him. And perhaps maybe it would even cut off the funding to the special counsel's office. It would also bare minimum the shutdown. Critics smokescreen. We're Matt Whitaker continue to do his Matt Whitaker things. And we don't have to worry about him becoming AG? But where I think there's a fatal flaw in this plan. It actually kind of ties back into pay too is with the economy front of this. So he. He can't stretch on Trump. He kids stretch on this government shutdown forever. Because the longer it goes on the more the economy is going to hurt over it, and that's going to affect markets, and at a certain point, and this could happen, regardless of the government shutdown whenever the government shutdown ends if it goes long enough. I think what we see later on this year is the credit rating agencies showing up and saying, hey, guess what? US? So let's talk about your credit..

"You see in addition to the house rule. Hey goes also in shrine in federal law as progressive caucus co chair. Mark Po-Chun is poking Auchan poke poke poke can. Hoke? We'll good for you. I. Wow. Was just trying to help. I did how how the hell do you know that Chris how do you know that? I'm just guessing I know that you know, that man, I just feel behind you. So. So so so he. So he explained it on the on Twitter, it sucks Indem Dempsey get rid of it when they had the Senate and the presidency until that's the case is better for the house to control out new spending will be paid for because under existing law. The executive branch get institute cuts to balance out any deficit spending. Then this would not be a good thing. So I still I still don't know if that is the reasoning why people voted yes, or no, I feel that this is more along the lines of of you know, I I got about comedy. Said to be completely honest. I think a lot of what is motivating progressives in what is perhaps scaring them from voting what they would like to vote for or even what their constituency would allow them to vote for if they also wanted to vote for it is that they want to make sure they have a good seat and Nancy Pelosi's caucus and Pelosi doles out the committee chairs, and I think I actually saw Representative John Paul say specifically one of the concession shoes. Able to get from Nancy Pelosi was more committee seats, and so there'll be more progressives on these committees. I mean, really, you know, what we've watched over the last month. Here is Nancy Pelosi in specific doing a very very effective job at consolidating up her votes, making sure she knows where everyone stands and. She put down Seth Moulton. Remember that guy? He was maybe thinking about trying to become the house speaker. She shut that down and she shut down any other challenger from her left flank. And and I think that this kind of caps off that month run. So Chris are are are you saying that the three people who voted yes? Or who voted no the three people who voted 'no should expect less fair treatment from from these designations Pelosi spoke about those three people real quickly. So you have Alexandrio Cossio Cortez who is building her own powerbase independent of Nancy Pelosi. And so I will. A little bit of contra Sean here. I'm less worried about AO see building out her base than Bego building out his base because Eos sees base is sitting in contrast to Pelosi's base, which I think frankly needs to be challenged. She's you know, she's makes she keeps making deals that put off her stepping down. And it's like all right enough. I I've seen how this game gets played out in politics too many times. So I like that whereas with Bego almonds, this might surprise people because you know, obvious in from Texas and supported him as a conceptual candidate. But he hasn't actually articulated any policy positions for this presidential runs going to be like, and where he started in the Texas run, and where he ended in the general election there a lot of movement there. So I would need to know what he's about. I think it's important for people to actually know what this guy's about before you just go. Yes. Beta twenty twenty you don't even know what that means. It's like Coney Twen. Twelve now again God like people are going to write whatever fantasy. They have about what they think like an ex punk rocking. Attractively young guys gonna do when he gets into office in like based on the record light, not like the the mismatch between how he votes and who likes him is like one of the biggest mismatches I've seen on the left in a while so government shutdown. I keep burying this at the back of these episodes. But because here's my theory on the government shutdown, and then I want to hear what you guys think about this first time. So I think the government shutdown strategy that Trump is employing here is it's not really it's not three d chess. It's like two and a half de checkers and play what that meets here. So Trump has driven has a few different problems at hand right now, he has this Mideast withdrawal..

"So like if they put in Hillary Clinton, you can go pox on the electoral college, and then the electoral college all the electors can get flushed out, and we can have a scandal around the electoral college, but not actually have to go through the obviously bad persons presidency wouldn't want the electoral to just be overturning elections. But if there was ever a case for that, it would have been the Trump presidency. So clearly like river derring to original conception of the electoral college kind of thing like with the guardians of the watchtower sort of idea. I if you wanna get all foundry. I. No, no, no. That is like that is their conception of it. There's a clear elitist streak that the founders had which is why they're like Republic, not democracy. You wanna have democratic processes, but ultimately, a Republican structure of government? So I mean that is the natural check. But but clearly, it doesn't work, and there's a number of different mechanical reasons that I'll spare everyone from as to why it doesn't work that even goes down to appointments, so I would like to see that actually have teeth, but it doesn't so we should get rid of it. And that would also get us to mechanism number two. The popular vote another way you could avoid Donald Trump getting elected president is actually trusting the votes of the people who voted for Hillary Clinton. So like, I'm with you. We do need to the governments. And I want other check them things. I've been thinking about two on checks is I want things like the department of Justice. Maybe more coupled from the. -secutive ranch. I think that both Obama to a much lesser extent and Trump to a much greater extent have exposed how the AG's office is too cozy with the president. And so it fails to create a real check on the president. I would also want an FBI director. I want the FBI kind of separated from the executive branch for similar reasons. It's also part of the DOJ. So re conception of how that's done maybe have some of the judiciary involved in that as well. And then another thing I'd like to see his just a special counsel for life up in Washington DC whose job it is the just constantly be auditing.
