The Seed and Soil Argument With Historian Bill Federer

"1700s and all of a sudden Britain is in a little bit of trouble and they start to have to tax the colonies, expand more on the seed and soil argument that led us to the culmination of the 1770s. It's interesting so the British, the king of England, went on to become the most powerful king on Planet Earth. If he was a globalist, he was a one world government guy. And so in the middle 1700s, they controlled Bengal and Bengal India, Bengal, India, and they basically took over and said, okay, all this, you know, subsistence farming and stuff you've been doing working to switch it up. We know how to do this. And they change, they change their economy so much that there was a drought and it turned into a famine and 10 million people died in Bengal in the middle to late 1700s. And so the British East India Company has gone bankrupt and so they go to the king say, hey, we want to tax Britain and the people in Britain said no way. And so the king says, okay, well, you can tax the colonies. And it started to escalate and the king wanted to take away our ability to print our own money, take away our ability to appoint judges. So all the judges were appointed by the king and but he didn't realize that, by the way, king George the third went insane. He had porphyria, a blue blood disease. You know, you intermarry the preserve the royal bloodline. Uncle daddy. But anyway, so the king of England was a globalist and America's founders decided they didn't like this global as king telling us what to do. So they broke away and flipped it and made the people the king. So the word citizen is Greek, it means co king, co ruler, co sovereign. So kings have subjects who are subjected to their will, Republicans and democracies have citizens. And so if you're a citizen of America, you are a co ruler, you're a

A Brief History of the English-American Experiment With Bill Federer

"Being the Americans, we kind of go into the private property direction, right? Yeah, so England tried a 15 year American experiment called the English Commonwealth. So the King Charles the first got defeated and 16 40 or so and got his head chopped off. In the glorious revolution. This is prior to that, but that is a key revolution in 1688. But this was like 1649 to 1660. It's called the English Commonwealth. It was an American experiment of a Commonwealth of covenant. They had no king. Oliver Cromwell refused to take the title of the king, he called himself lord protector. He did an okay job. He dies, his son, Richard, can't keep it together. And so William Penn's dad, sales he's an admiral. Sales over to Europe puts Charles the second on the throne brings him back and re Institutes the monarchy. And in exchange he gets in a state in Ireland and then he's a famous admiral and then of course his son found Pennsylvania. But so they had an American experiment for 15 years, but they brought the king back. America, because of a 3000 mile ocean, because Europe was the chessboard in America was sort of an afterthought. I mean, we lost money. It wasn't like Spanish gold anywhere. It was a loser. And because of that, the king said, look, just don't cost me any money and stay out of my hair. And so for almost a century and a half, the Americans got to practice self government, like training wheels. And that's the dilemma. We go into these countries, we get rid of Saddam Hussein. We give them a constitution identical to ours almost. And then one election cycle they vote in Sharia law. And we scratch our heads thinking gee, why didn't our farmer government work? It's like duh, they have an Islamic soil that you planted the seed in, where an America you had a predominantly judeo Christian soil. The Berlin Wall comes down. Help them set up governments almost identical to ours. It gets taken over the bly that black market, the mafia, the organized crime, we scratch our heads, thinking, why didn't it turn out like America? Well, you planted the seed in an atheistic soil. They had 70 years of atheism, right? And so it worked in America. You have seed and soil or form of governments like a genetically engineered seed, but you plant seeds in soil and the soil is a predominantly judeo Christian populace. Right. So that's why it worked in

Why Was America Able to Self-Govern? Historian Bill Federer Explains

"But why America? Why was it all of a sudden we were able to bring the ideals of self government into practice because there was a struggle obviously against king George and our origins, if we stand the top history and I agree with you as respecting the individual, what caused that to manifest. Interesting goes back to the reformation that goes back to church, and the idea of a church government that's congregational in the model versus the hierarchal model. The hierarchical model in England the king was at the top and your relationship with God is through this structure of Archbishop of Canterbury and so forth. But in the Protestant puritan model, there's a group that's an ecclesia, a body, and the pastor's job is to get everybody to have their relationship with the lord and then coach them to become mature Christians and find their place in the body and plug in in this thing grows. And that was the situation in New England, not in Virginia, but in New

Charlie Welcomes One of the Foremost History Experts, Bill Federer

"With Bill Federer and rob McCoy, Bill, welcome back to the program. Hey, Charlie, great to be with you. Bill is the history Wiz. Yes, he is. I mean, rob, I've never met anyone like Bill. Prolific is one way to describe you. How many books is about 25? All history books. Yeah, try to learn lessons from history. People say history repeats itself really human nature repeats itself, and you observe the patterns. It's sort of like the government is collecting all the information on you and all the listeners from their cell phones and emails and web searches and they're taking all that data and running an algorithm on it to get predictive. And so if you study enough history, you see the patterns, you can be predictive. And so I tell people that history is not prophetic, but it is predictive. So what does history tell you about the moment we're in or tell us? The default setting for human nature is gangs, tribes, power wants to concentrate into the hands of one person. And you go back through history and you have the most common form of government's kings, nimrod federal Caesar Kaiser sultans are and you can plot it out. At some point it's going to max out on a global level. And you know, if Genghis Khan killed 30 million people, if he hadn't had died, he didn't have to keep killing. You know, Mao Zedong kills 80 million. If he hadn't had died. And so that spirit is still there and then but Jesus says wheat and tears grow together until the harvest. So you always have, you know, I always try to spiritualize, but you always have the spiritual descendants of Cain always trying to kill the spiritual descendants of Abel. You know, and the only thing that changes over time is military advancements allow the king to kill more people and technological advancements along the track more people. The stakes get higher, but it's that same fallen nature and at the same time, the stories we love best in the Bible are when things look hopeless and God raises up little nobodies with faith and courage and

"Truth teller extraordinary. Now the CEO of the Trump media group's truth social former chairman of the intelligence House committee, great friend of the show, Devin Nunes, welcome back. Great to be back with you. As always. So we've got you for two segments. We're going to talk about you got a hint. You want to tease us about what's coming around the corner with truth social in the next segment. I'm so grateful. I don't know what you guys did behind the curtain, but I'm gaining two or 3000 followers a day. Absolutely exploding. People need to follow you on truth social people need to get an account. But let's start with what's happening right now on Capitol Hill. It's a circus. Some of our callers have called it an inquisition, a star chamber. I got to ask you as a pro on Capitol Hill. Is this going to back fire in ways the Democrats do not expect? Well, I have some other names I could call it sea bass, but we won't do that since you're on the radio. I don't want you to, I don't want you to get bleeped out. Look, the Congress has never seen anything like this. It's never been done in history, where the minority party, the Republicans in this case, don't get the ability to put the people they want on the committee. So effectively, what you have, plain and simple, is you have judge, jury, prosecution, defense, all in one, along with the media who are just going along with this charade. So I think what's going to have to happen here, ultimately, is if the Republicans are successful in the fall, there's going to need to be a whole host of investigations, but especially around January 6th and what the government and the Biden administration and the Democrats in Congress, everything that they've been doing, even some Republicans are supposed to Republicans. I need to look at how their doctoring evidence, how they're manipulating people. And look, we still don't know. And I still say this, who's this ray of sky, that's all I want to

Kevin Roberts on Universal School Choice and More

"This is what is being told now as part of critical theory that the search for the truth and objectivity is somehow racist. Yeah, it is. I mean, we even see that in a couple of the museums and the nation's capital, which is just preposterous, right? So in order to lead up to that, because that's a decade long project to get rid of that agency, we have to make sure that the state level that there's universal school choice, period, full stop. Every single dollar that any government entity spends on education needs to follow the child. So in heritage, what we're doing to sort of write a headline is operating on these aspirational goals that lead us to greater self governance. And we're not afraid of these big objectives like eliminating the Department of Education or implementing school choice at every state. But we also have to play as a baseball fan, what I call small ball. We got to go hit some singles. Some doubles and lead up to that. So pro life education, we are deeply concerned about the threat of the Chinese Communist Party. They've infiltrated our institutions of higher education and what used to be called Confucius Institutes. And we're talking about what government organs of conversion on our campus. Completely. I mean, my moderate University of Texas is one of the biggest violators of common sense when it comes to keeping the CCP out of our institutions. Heritage is going to shine the light on all of that because there are a lot of members of Congress who are given campaign money by K street lobbyists, affiliated with the CCP to protect this. I'm just here to let you know that next year when there's likely a Republican majority, they darn well better govern as conservatives rather than capital are Republicans when it comes to these

Joe Biden Pulls a Hugo Chávez-Style Move With Oil

"Joe Biden is really kind of pulling what I would call a Chavez style move. This is right out of the playbook of Hugo Chavez, go back 22 years ago in Venezuela, where he blamed everyone, except for his own government for the problems that the Venezuelan economy was struggling with. And you look at what's happening now, and Joe Biden's doing the exact same thing. It somehow big oils fault. Now again, I'm pleased about the idea of maybe a tax break for the American consumers. I'd like to say, I never met a tax break that I didn't like. I think it's so important to always be putting money back into the hands of the consumers given that we are a market based capitalist economy. That said, it's taken him a while to get here. Has it not? I mean, he's just grasping at straws. He's done everything he can. Could. I mean, the SPR thing, that didn't work, filling up the strategic releasing the strategic petroleum reserve that didn't work, you know, maybe after this relief on taxes, if he gets it, maybe the only thing left is to actually think about drilling more. I mean, that might actually be the solution here. Maybe to have a little bit more of a positive spin on the energy sector because you see nobody's wanting to invest. Can you blame them when you get the president just slamming the sector constantly? Remember what Chavez did? In Venezuela, he actually kicked all the European American companies out of the very valuable orinoco region. And so all the technology that the western companies could have brought there, American companies, all the terrific technology to get that heavy, tar like oil out of the ground, well, they couldn't do it because he sent them packing. He took over their businesses, Joe Biden is threatening something not entirely dissimilar.

Dinesh Answers a Listener Question About January 6th

"Time for our next question, take a listen. Hi dinesh. I have a question I have not heard at rest. Before about the so called January 6th insurrection. Could you disseminate the most extreme outcome? Often the capitol building is equated with democracy. If the rioters had fully taken over, disarmed all the security and taken every one hostage, what would have happened would all 50 states simply have surrendered and a mob would have taken control of the whole country or what could have happened. This is really a tremendous question and it's a tremendous question because it's strikes at the underlying inanity of the claims by many on the left. Democrats, the January 6th committee, that this was an attempt to take over of the government. And really what the question is doing is saying, well, let's see. Let's see. Would the government actually have been taken over, true, the capitol building is the place where Congress meets. It is the venue for you may say, conducting the legislative business of government. But nevertheless, let's say that there is a successful capital occupation. And by the way, you can make the point even clearer by ignoring January 6th, and imagining an occupation of the capital by the left or by the right. So let's say, for example, the Supreme Court issues a decision, striking down roe versus wade. And a bunch of left wing activists go into the capitol, they occupy the capital, they make everybody leave, they have, quote, taken over the capital. And the question is, have they taken over the U.S. government? Are they now in charge of the United States? Are they going to be appointing ambassadors, concluding treaties? Are they going to be running the United States and would the rest of the country go? Well, you know what? We've got some new rulers in America and they're not the congressmen we elected they're not the senators we elected. There's this, there's this bunch of goons that went in there and are basically now declaring themselves to be in charge. Well, that's ridiculous. That is absurd. If these guys occupied the capitol in relatively short order, there would be a police regiment that would surround the capitol and put on some bullhorns and say, guys, peacefully leave the building right now. And of course, upon leaving, they would be put into handcuffs and arrested. Or we are going to have S.W.A.T. teams storm the building, and if you offer forceful resistance, you are likely to be killed.

It's a tomb and the fentanyl that all of us agree is the number one part of the border crisis is what we have to be focused on to kill the 107,000 American last year. It is a wide open border. I know you wanted to talk about the FDA and Joel. And I have to say, why are we focusing part of the federal government? The FDA on regulating jewel when we can't regulate the border. Why do we assume the federal government can do anything when it can't do the first thing, which is to control the border. As Molly said, the cartels control the border, not that. And administration, so why would we trust the FDA, which had a very bad year anyway in the course of COVID? They blew the Johnson & Johnson pause. They blew in fact, they blew a lot of the Abbott laboratory process. They do not have a great reputation right now and they're shutting down jewel. I'm not a fan of Joel.

By the government against the citizens right now, I want to ask a broader question, though, which is why are Democrats not adjusting any of their strategy, their messaging or their tactics. I mean, they see the polls, they see that people are uneasy, why do you think that is? I think that the reason why they're not adjusting right now is because they actually need to maintain that base. The only people who like Joe Biden at all now are people who are knee jerk hardcore leftists. The type of people who see $8 gasoline and they don't see it as a problem. They see it as a benefit. The people who see Disney grooming children into the trans cult. They see that not as a negative, but as a benefit. They don't care about blue chip stocks and where things are in the with your 401k. They never cared about that stuff. They care about they're really to sacrifice money. They're willing to even sacrifice a vote. So long as they can advance the culture. They think that's the long game.

And it was only in recent years that we had that, but since that, we really haven't had a lot of development of that. But one of the things that justice Thomas has been saying over and over again, even when they've not taken cases, he'll denial absurd. He'll put a comment in, which is very rare in a denial of cert, normally they just say certain I know 7, 8000 times a year. The point he's made over and over is, why are you treating this right this individual right? Differently and like it's some sort of second class constitutional right. You know, you do things to Second Amendment rights of individuals that you don't do to First Amendment rights of individuals. And this is a great example of that.

Is President Trump in Legal Jeopardy? Victoria Toensing Explains

"Of the January 6th show trial. I'm going to use that phrase show trial. Is the target stuff from a boss president Trump. That's not what you Victoria. How great is his legal jeopardy? Because I've seen a couple of different avenues of attack. First it was, he calls the insurrection. He incited the violence. That's why they've never showed the clip of him saying march peacefully and patriotically to the capital, which of course would negate that. Now, they seem to have switched tactics amid way and say that he's, he raised funds to investigate fraudulent election activities and then did nothing with it and just kept it for his own purposes or political campaigning and they're going to try and use some kind of financial charge. Whatever it is, is he in legal jeopardy? I can't see any basis or legal jeopardy. The latest is what you had at Adam Schiff talking about at the beginning of the hour. Oh, the alternative slate. Yes, let's unpack this. The electors. The alternative electric slate, which was done by the Democrats in 1960, by the way, and nobody went after them criminally. What would the charge even be? Well, that's why Dana bash is such a suck up. Reporter, she didn't report, please report her. Oh, okay. Please. Suck up. It would be a conspiracy to defraud the United States government of faithful electors. That's what it would be. To fraud the United States. But I don't know, but it's got to be something that's going to be something illegal about that. And when it was done in 1960, what is the difference between having a slate of electors, and here's what was in the documents that said, if Trump wins, legal arguments. I mean, language to that effect were in there. It wasn't like we are the other elections. It wasn't we're going to make up the results. No. Only if he wins in court decisions because there's a certain deadline by which electors have to be chosen. So if they weren't

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.

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.

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.

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.

"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?.

"But I thought this is a really strong example of like, here's Trump using technology as the disruptor here is him going after the Wall Street Journal media, although actually interestingly going after BuzzFeed here, but he is indicting the old media based on the way that BuzzFeed works, which I think is fun to. Yeah. It's the villains of older new media sort of it's becoming confusing who who were supposed to be rooting for or not. Now, I think that's. Absolutely, right. I think you can look through history. And like really see like technology is such an underrated explainer for why we get huge shifts in virtually everything I mean, even the civil rights movement of the nineteen sixties why didn't the African American community managed to organize itself powerfully decades earlier while I mean, there's a bunch of reasons that question, but is big part of that the bus boycott without buses. Right. So there's certain amenities that are going to get a lot more attention than just haven't been invented yet. All of a sudden they have public amenities. You have to manage someone can can fuck that up, but more more specifically, even I mean, you have cars, which can get you into the city. So a lot of blacks took advantage of that road up from from the south into the north using automobiles trains that they didn't have access to in the nineteenth century and that allowed them to get closer together. And actually, mobilizing communicate and communications technology. It's very difficult to organize resistance movements. When literacy. She is still really high amongst any community, but especially within the turn of the century African American community, and then you have things like mass television. I mean like you can't undercount how important having Selma in everyone's living room when that happened to have the media covering this in this very visceral way. It's one thing to read about these reports in the newspapers another thing to see like that is a woman and like that's a dog attacking her holy shit with the Rodney King beating. That's right. Exactly. So I think which is only possible from the hand held video camera which thing you couldn't have had in the nineteen sixties. And there's probably what we have is like the biggest disruptor is now, you know, we can produce video footage, we can produce audio footage anywhere at anytime instantly. And so you're just going to be getting a lot of media decentralisation because the power has moved away from the people you still own the capital of the cameras and the the outlets and now. Anyone can go on the internet and become, you know, a famous podcast or a famous writer or blogger or you know, you can get audiences.

"Radio sometime in the eighties. The network largely build self around truck operators because they're the, you know, this is a reliable demographic there in the coral the car and your problem is a twenty four hour political talk station is how do I actually get enough asses in the seats on a radio program long enough? Well, you fill with truckers and you fill with what you wanna hear. And at the time a lot of that was kind of this was the Reagan Reagan's movement kind of Reaganite of the nineteen eighties. And so you have this kind of fiscally conservative anti social liberalism of the left kind of moment where you could go after these people and demonstrated that. This is a model that really works. So I think they looked at taro it worked, but the profit. Yeah. No, no in the nineteen nineties. I think another important time-line spot is the OJ Simpson trial because that really created a huge market for twenty four seven coverage over something that wasn't fucking consequential that did not deserve four seven especially in era when nothing got twenty four seven coverage. And I think the other thing that that the OJ Simpson trial did was it demonstrated. The success civically of a model where it's people strongly disagree with something yelling at each other. The talk radio model has almost always been one crazy person talking to you and then talking with the bunch of his followers. You know, the idea that that would translate necessarily into like just having one person talk at you on cable television for twenty four hours a day. That's a lot more of a hard sell than like, I'm driving my car. I have nowhere else to be. I gotta look straightforward. So I'll listen to your voice big thing to go from listen to your voice still stare at your stupid face for like, two straight hours. But OJ Simpson similar cases of the time. I think did demonstrate that the panel format of we all really loudly. Violently disagree about this thing will people just sit there and watch hundreds of hours of people arguing disagreeing over the same thing. Make the emergency do Sean. I look back at this now. And it's totally nuts to me they manage to convince enough people that this was emergency O J Simpson trial that when I was in third grade class was stopped during the day. So that we could see the guilty not guilty. I do I was in fourth grade. And I remember when we. Sat there and listen to the radio for like three hours for this thing right for a murder trial a murder trial? Now, obviously, there was a grand'rue cultural war being litigated, which is how we even arrived at that point. But like that that is a testament to the media success. They convinced people that like there was some serious stakes on whether OJ Simpson was or was not guilty of killing his ex wife and her boyfriend. Yeah. Yeah. So I mean overall there's a lesson that was learned which is a really simple one. And it's really scary one going forward because Israel Chinese finger trap. I don't necessarily know how you get yourself out of this people learned that it's really cheap and really profitable to just set people in a room and get them yelling at each other, regardless of whether they know what they're talking about. And perhaps, especially if they don't know what they're talking about. The media has no real incentive to do anything right now. Now other than to inflame partisanship as much as the employment. They don't inform. I like, you know, I hate using kind cliche lines like that. But I mean, you really think about it. You have twenty four hour news coverage. But how often do you get deep? Does. How often do they have a reporter on from the Daily Beast to talk firsthand about the reporting that they've done for twenty minutes, thirty minutes, you can get some of that. If you go over to C-SPAN, you can actually find shows like that..

"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..

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..

"Really was nothing came of it. But it was important information about Cava, and he just released to the press feeling like, you know, rules. This is the right thing to do. I'm going to do what I feel like is right for my job in confirming this person into the supreme court, and it was a moment where he went against the rules, and he very easily could have lost some power within Senate for doing that. And he realized that the optics of the moment right now is that people wanna see someone that's willing to actually fight a little bit. That's willing to to potentially harm their own power base in the short term in order to make these kinds of gains that they want. So he struck me as someone that. I'll watch him. I might be wrong about this. But I think he gets it. And I think he'll make a lot of the moves that make him look like a feisty opponent one that Trump can't easily bait and someone that's going to create their own narrative about themselves well to go back to. Warn a little bit. I don't think as as far as the knife fight. I think you're right on with that she she doesn't have the argumentative tone. That is going to contrast against from it raises. Another problem for me too. In the sense of if you can't get over the Trump hill, then how are you going to deal with passing legislation and stuff that in my opinion is much harder than dealing with a Twitter war with Donald Trump. Right. I'm kind of in. I mean, you know, I've always lead a little bit more this way. But I'm just a little bit frustrated with people that have the right ideas in the right rhetoric. Have absolutely no idea how to actually get implemented into policy and warring is not there. She's had major policy victories in the past sitting the consumer protections euro and everything like that. So she does know how to get things pushed through and I think she picks mart. Issues to go after but I'm less worried about the inside baseball policy stuff in more just if Trump throws a grenade at her as she smart enough to duck it rather than old hand strength figure out. What response is gonna be. She's she's smart enough to know how to accomplish things, but she's not savvy enough to know how to champion yourself before we move onto third part of the other really quick. I just figured it'd be talked about I'm mostly excited. Let let less about finding the candidate that I'm really passionate about because I don't really having a dog too much in the fight. But I'm mostly terrified. By what the field could end up being the Democrats, and is a lot of people in that field that I think are going to be really really bad distractions for the field. And you know, there's a pole came out a couple of weeks ago. They do the first Trump on Iowa that the top was I believe Biden burning Bego. And all three of those all say for myself. I think that those would be disastrous choices at I think that not just disastrous choices for the general election. I also think that they would just better serve the country by kind of not participating in the democratic primary. I don't expect that the happen. As certainly not in the case of Biden, probably on the case of burning maybe in betas case. But I think that all three of them are tremendous distractions gonna take down all sorts of nasty wrong paths. Yeah. I have different concerns with each one. Right. So with Biden, I have the concern that America goes back to bed after Joe, Biden gets elected supposing. He's able to beat Trump. I'm not entirely convinced that he can I think the I'd campaign Joe is not actually that good. And that's the other thing is like I said, it's a heightened Kendrick contradictions elections. You got an old white guy foot in his mouth. I don't know. He hasn't had a. Good history of voting for president in the past. I don't know why we all of a sudden think this time will be different based off of the fact that we've learned repeatedly that seventy one year old men don't just change their stripes all the time. So I I have issues on that front with him with Bego. You've got the blink slate thing and with Bernie so Bernie's series of contradictions from your a series of complicated feelings for me because on one hand when I talked to my friends who are liberal, but not particularly politically engaged..

"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.

"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..

"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. Every major elected politician democrat Republican without fear or favor. That sounds lovely. I wonder. I I don't know. But I mean, if you're asking me what I was thinking about. Impossible. None of this will happen, of course. But, you know, something like this package though. I mean, I feel like. Why can't it though to a certain legs? I mean, there's really like you can't really petition against it in for from either side. And I would imagine we'd have huge public support. This is like a salient strap this is like you just need to get enough of the public actually think about this for five seconds to put some pressure on them to actually do it. And that's the trick. And there's so many things like that. It's like can you just wrangle people enough? Yeah. It's interesting too. Because I saw I forget where the poll came out of. And so, of course, always skeptical decide any of those without it. But they were talking about the top three priorities for Americans this week. It was on one of the major news networks, and it was like a Konami corruption healthcare and the corruption piece I think neither the Republicans nor the Democrats are still really speaking convincingly to the public on. I think the Democrats have incorporated the phrase corruption. But I don't think that if if corruptions game abou- ship, I still don't think that they're hitting, you know, the aircra-. Carrier.
