A highlight from National Suicide: Bidens America
"Instead of fucking pulling your kids out of a car. All right, and that is Metallica James Hetfield to send them one of my hats. I don't know if you got it or not, but I sent it to one of their recording studios, California. The only one I know that they have, this is Ian Trottier here, folks, for discussions of truth. I'm going to give you a monologue, if you will, today. It's just me, no guests. It's been a while here since I have released a podcast. People ask me all the time, left and right. I blow people away with some of the knowledge that I have, and they ask me, Ian, when did you start uncovering the deep state? When did you start looking into this? It's very simple, it's very easy. 2016, Miami Beach, the Zika virus. A good friend of mine who's no longer with us, fortunately passed away the fall of 2019. David got me looking into the Zika virus. Wow, that has been four years now that David's been gone. David got me looking into the Zika virus and the pesticide. As I began digging down the road, of course, it's not even cliché, really. It was the Rockefeller Foundation involved in the Zika virus and also the pesticide. I was quickly turned on to Anthony Sutton, who is a Stanford Hoover Fellow. He was writing about the corruption in the Federal Reserve. I then found him talking about the Hegelian dialectic, which is essentially how the Rothschild made their fortune over centuries, creating and controlling conflict in Europe. It was pretty simple. Those are the dots that I've connected. You can certainly agree with them or not, but some of these things are simply not contestable. If you take, for instance, and this is something that I commonly tell people. I have them, and you can do it right now if you're listening to me. Just go to Google, go to Yahoo, whatever it may be, and type in U .S. Grand Union flag. Now open up another browser and type in British East Indies Company flag. What you have there, folks, is the same flag, which means no taxation without representation. The British East Indies Company, which was bringing in tea into the Boston Harbor, that ended up being who actually funded the American Revolution. This is fact. You can cross -check it. George Washington owned shares in the British East Indies Company. In fact, Elihu Yale, if you go down the Skull and Bones Road, which is what Anthony Sutton will take you down, Elihu Yale was a principal shareholder of the British East Indies Company. The Skull and Bones Society, otherwise connected to the Illuminati out of Bavaria, is nothing more than a secret society that's linked to the Vatican. These are secret societies which are meant to essentially invade society on the local level. That's essentially what that ends up being. Eric John Phelps is a historian based out of Pennsylvania that I commonly and frequently allude to. I invited him to the Take Back Oregon event that I principally was principal in organizing last month. Hopefully those folks like to get a movement going again for those folks. That state needs a lot of help. The country needs help. But I invited Eric John Phelps to that rally. He was unable to attend. But what Eric John Phelps will tell you is he, of course, he's religious. He goes down that religious road. What's the cornerstone of the U .S. Constitution? Well, it is religious freedom. The Mayflower set sail, I think it was from Dartmouth, landed on Plymouth Rock. Dartmouth in England, they set sail seeking religious freedom. That is the principle, that is the cornerstone for the creation of what later became known as the United States. And that is why this country exists today, really because of those religious freedom fighters from England. I'm going to read an article for you that I wrote. Of late, I'm using two platforms to release my writings. Go right now to Tryon Day Publishing. Go to Tryon Day or Books a Million and order my book. It took me over four years to write that book. I call it Freedom Reserve, No More Lies. Please order the book. It's on presale. It's been on presale now for a couple of years. But Chris is going to take his time to publish it. He's going to publish it when he gets around to it. It's a small publishing house, Chris. Tryon Day Publishing is a small publishing house. They published work for Sean Stone, Oliver Stone's son. He's published Whitney Webb's recent book last year. He's got my manuscript. I have an agreement. He'll publish it. Please order it. Please do that. It's called Freedom Reserve, No More Lies, Tryon Day Publishing. In the meantime, I am working on two new book ideas. I'm working on one book. I'm working on two new book ideas. I'm basically working on one book actively and a second book idea. I haven't formatted that yet. In the interim, I've had time to do this. I have in the past couple of weeks, been writing articles. I released them on two different platforms. That yournews is .com.
Fresh update on "hoover" discussed on CoinDesk Podcast Network
"This episode of Money Reimagined is sponsored by SIBO Digital. You're listening to CoinDesk's Money Reimagined with Michael Casey and Sheila Warren. Hello and welcome to Money Reimagined. I'm Michael Casey. Unfortunately, we're doing a lot of this at the moment, but my co-host, who I always love to be with Sheila, is just a very busy lady at the moment, so I haven't been able to get her on the show. That's not to say we don't have a fantastic show. I hope, I'm pretty certain of it today because we have the one and only Alex, otherwise known as Sandy Pentland. I'll get to him in a moment. This is Money Reimagined, as I said. You can listen to us weekly on the CoinDesk Podcast Network or wherever you get your podcasts, and we would love to hear from you. So tell us what you think of this or any other episode. You can email us at podcasts.coindesk.com. Make sure you use the subject line Money Reimagined. As I said, we are actually joined by Professor Alex, otherwise known as Sandy. That's who he'll be referred to from here on in. Sandy Pentland, who directs the MIT Connection Science at MIT's Media Lab. Sandy has been involved in data science for a very long time, one of the most noted and most oft-cited computational scientists in the world. I had the pleasure of working with Sandy when I was at the MIT Media Lab Digital Currency Initiative, and I just thought it would be really worth bringing him on today because Sandy has, I think, really been at the forefront of thinking through how do human beings deal with the ownership of their data and how we work through the challenges of the Web2 world with that. Now as we move into an AI age where he's also spent a lot of time investigating and quite at this very moment starting to confront some real issues, Sandy, around the governance of AI, it would just be great to have a conversation about it. So first of all, before we get into that, how are you? Thank you very much for joining us. Doing fine. Glad to be here. It's do it. All right, let's do it. So the news I think that's a good peg here is, of course, the frack are open AI, which I think, you know, the mainstream media covered as if it were a kind of a coup, if you like, for attempted coup from the board, then it's survival of Sam Altman. And I think, like, as a person from the media, you know, we all love blood sports. And so there was some drama there that inevitably became part of the story, like, is he in, is he out? And what was it that had upset the board so much? And how did they handle it? And so forth. And, you know, clearly a big show of support for Altman amongst the employees kind of coming to his rescue and it looks like, you know, there would have been a mutiny and they had to come back. So it all looked as if, you know, the board had overplayed their hand and ultimately had failed in whatever it was trying to do there. Some of the board members who'd voted against Sam Altman were removed, new ones were brought in, and there's sort of something of a new governance model. But the key point, as far as I'm concerned, is that open AI was created at the very beginning with a real acknowledgement of something that we're now talking about more and more. And that is that, you know, this rapid moving machine learning, and particularly this type of generative AI, has the potential to evolve out of our control into AGI, artificial general intelligence. And that if it did, there may be a moment in which we humans get sort of superseded by it and that we fall victim to this thing and that there's real dangers involved, right? We've been hearing a lot from these people. And therefore, open AI was created with this structure where it was initially a nonprofit, that it would be free from the financial incentives of a typical profit, for-profit company, and therefore be able to engage in this research in a way without being compelled to make money and that would be a good thing. And then they realized that they'd have to, compete, and so they spun out a for-profit company, Open AI Global, so they could raise money from venture capitalists and start to offer incentives to their own employees. And the original nonprofit board, that company became the major shareholder of this. And so there was still this structure of oversight. But it had already, it seemed to me, had been thrown straight into this sort of like now for-profit conflict and a misalignment was starting to happen. I don't know what it was that upset the board. We've heard various stories about articles that were written and arguments of different people. Whatever it was, that structure didn't, it seems the real risk here is it didn't work. That if there is supposed to be some oversight, it didn't happen. And I've always thought that the biggest problem we face, not only with AI, but with Web2, is the sort of centralized control of these platforms that really built upon the human labor of everyone else, the data, the labor, the content, and that there's a misalignment between the sort of very centralized control of that and the profit motives of the companies that run that. And somehow we've got to fix out that realignment. So I don't know. I feel as if whatever they tried to do at OpenAI just didn't work to solve that problem. And what we're left with is the problem. So before we get into what you'd see as the solution, is my read on that right? What's your takeaway from the drawing? Well, you're putting an awful lot into the question there. They're good questions. They're right on. But I think the first thing to talk about is, what's about the governance of AI? Because that seems to be the core of the battle. And then the second thing is, well, how do you avoid centralization, which is a perfectly good— that's a really key question. But I think you want to take those as two topics, not as— Well, let's do that. Let's start with that first one. Yeah. My read on this, and I've had Sam over to talk and I know some of the other people, is that this is a battle between people who think that AI poses an existential threat to humanity. And you can sort of see that, but there's many things that pose an existential threat to humanity, and there's a standard way to get around that or to deal with it, let's just say. And that is that you audit things, right? You keep a continuous running audit that's publicly available. We do this with money, right? Everybody has to have those quarterly reports. We report the taxes. The audit firms come in and it doesn't always work, but it works pretty well. And what it also does is scare people enough that they don't do really outrageous things. And when they do, they get caught really pretty quickly, right? So how do you audit AI? Well, you just keep a track of what it does. And each time there's a decision, each time there's a way, you write it down and you ask, how does this compare to the sort of way we want it to do? So in other words, is this affecting black people different than white people, women different than men? Is it saying a lot of stupid things? You know, you can keep track of that stuff. It's not even expensive. And then there ought to be the ability for people to sort of audit it. Right now, what you have to do is you have to have like lawsuits and discovery and it's this, you know, you have to have to invest a lot of money and time and dig it out of their, you know, cold hands to be able to answer, is this actually working correctly or not? And you just have to make that visible and auditable. That's the solution that we've had for almost everything that we've done. And the advantage of that is we don't know what sort of troubles AI can get into. We don't know what crazy junk people are going to do with it. And so you can't write laws beforehand to control it. What you have to do is say, okay, we know about normal bad things. We know about harms. That's why we have all those laws. That's why we, all right, okay. And we have to ask, well, is this AI causing harms? And that's an auditing question. So, you know, I work with the EU regulators, with the US people, with other sort of countries and, you know, people are coming around to this idea. There are some things that are sort of obviously you don't want to do, but mostly we're in sort of new territory and what you really ought to do is keep track of stuff and make that publicly available so that people can say, hey, wait a second, that's not fair. That's not right. As opposed to having to, you know, raise a hundred million dollar fund to go sue the jokers to whatever. So the open AI thing was, in my view, sort of a bunch of people that were sort of AI doomers and they just didn't want to see stuff happen at all. And Sam, who's maybe a little bit too forward in what they're doing. And, you know, I'm happy to have people do things, but I want to know what they're doing and I want to have that something that's guaranteed. We have the technology to do it. There's a couple of concepts that I think immediately come to mind when you say, you know, it's a transparency. I mean, they were part of the open AI story, but less so when it's open source code, right? I mean... Open source is a beginning, but only a beginning because it's what data went into it. And in fact, even then you don't understand. You have to actually look at what it actually does. Right. So I think there's like, again, you're calling for transparency, which I love. I think that that's, you know, that again, I think I like this point that we don't have, we don't know what harms or good for that matter could come out of this. And so... It's not just transparency. It's also accountability. Right. So when you see something bad, you can like nail a guy to the wall, right? Yeah. So, but that again, it feels like a very different structure to what we currently have. Yeah. No, no. But it's not a hard thing to do. Okay. And we ought to insist that they do that. Pieces that need to go into it. Like when you talk about an audit, I mean, we in the crypto space immediately think of a blockchain and so forth. That's a reasonable way to begin doing it. Yeah. Well, let's talk about that because I feel like one of the massive challenges I would have thought, if not for blockchain, is that there are so many inputs. The sources of that data are so varied, given that they're basically hoovering up at all from the breadth of what's on the internet. So that's the first thing. We have a project that's a big open source project, similar to sort of like Mozilla type things called the Provenance Project, where what we've done is curate all the training data and put metadata about what's the quality, who owns it, what's copyright. And so that people can now begin training these things with assurance that they're doing things that are legal and not stealing somebody's pajamas, right? Or that they're using stuff that was done by forced labor or what. I mean, there's lots of ways you can go wrong on the training. And so what we're doing is putting together this huge thing.

What when happens there's a debate and no one wins? Welcome to hour two of Sound On, this day after the big debate and Donald Trump's counter -programming last night, prompting a lot of sound bites, but no apparent shakeup in the landscape here. The Republican race for president. We're going to be joined this hour by Lonnie Chen, longtime Republican strategist now with the Hoover Institution about what we heard last night, whether he sees a potential for anyone to break out in this race and how Donald Trump did with the other show later, breaking news on the downing of a jet in.
A Deeper Look at Warren G. Harding's Fascinating and Scandalous Presidency
"Teddy Roosevelt died in 1919, which left the door wide open for someone else to come in and take the reins. And so that person ended up being Warren G. Harding. Now, Harding was a lesser -known Ohio senator who had made himself a fortune and fame as a businessman. He was specifically good with newspapers. He had bought a newspaper back in his local town of Marion, Ohio, and he generally was more of a compromise candidate. He met more checked boxes than the other candidates that were presented in the stead of Roosevelt. And so people backed Harding as their candidate, but he quickly captivated the American people. So most of the times compromise candidates may not work out as well due to their lack of strong base. But Harding wasn't really like that. He captivated the American people. And at the time, I think the populist movement was a desire for a more isolationist foreign policy and stronger mandates back home. So we had joined World War I. We didn't like it, and we didn't want that to be the status quo from here on out. So Harding easily defeated the Democrat up for election. His name was James Cox. And fun fact of history, which I didn't know leading up to this, was that James Cox's vice presidential candidate was Franklin Delano Roosevelt, FDR. So back in 1920, FDR got his first taste of national electoral campaigns as VP, which would play a strong part in his eventual election up to As the economy soared under Warren Harding's administration, by 1923, he was probably one of the most popular presidents ever during his presidency. So the aftermath of war, it's historically, it's a great time for technological advancement. So if you think about war in the aftermath of it, people are forced to innovate basically for the sake of their own lives. They want to get a technological advantage over their opponents. And so they start to invest more heavily in technology and in research and just ensuring that they understand as best as possible what edge can we get on our opponents. So examples of that is going to be investments in vehicles or investments in radio, which were all or both of those were strong investments and inventions within this era of history. So they were receiving engineering attention. It was allowed to be built more in mass and at scale. And so as a result, society became faster, more informed and culture evolved, which effectively made the 1920s a very fun time. So during the presidency of Warren Harding, Herbert Hoover was appointed Secretary of Commerce. So Hoover made his mark during World War I. He was the leader who spearheaded the Belgium Relief. And I will probably make an episode on the Belgium Relief because it's a really great story coming from World War I. But the footnotes, the summary of it is basically Belgium was starving because the French and Germans and the British were fighting just south of their country. And so Hoover, who had just happened to be happened to be in London at the time when World War I breaks out, he kind of just takes control of this Belgium relief. He starts to gain funds for it. And it was a very neutral affair. The Germans condoned it. They allowed basically the Belgian population to survive during these years of war. And as word got out of his efforts in that, he grew very popular. So he was almost one of the strongest war heroes at the time, despite not being a general or really partaking in the war at all, besides the volunteerism efforts. But Hoover had been away from the country for several decades. He had been in London. He had been in Australia and China. And so when he did come home, he wasn't as politically in the know in his homeland. And he didn't know really who was deserving of trust. So there was a couple of people who did want Hoover to run for president in 1920. And he ultimately decided against it for various reasons. But he did join the administration for Harding. And so Hoover recounted in his memoirs that when he joined President Harding's administration, he kind of thought of it that there was a lot of undesirable characters in it. And the characters, they would eventually be known in history as the Ohio Gang. So Ohio Gang was basically just a big ol' corruption ring. So Harding, he was a boy's boy kind of guy. So it felt to me, reading about him and trying to understand this, that he was the 1920s version of a big partier. So upon becoming president, Harding took a very strong nepotism track. He appointed many of his friends from back home into prominent cabinet positions.

It's nummy. I want vanilla. I want, I want vanilla. Here comes Eric Mataxas. Folks, welcome back. This is hour two. We continue the conversation with General Flynn. General Flynn, you were just saying some big stuff. And we're going to have to, you said, let's assume victory. Now again, we can't assume victory, but assuming victory as we war game this through here. Let's say we get enough citizens to guard the vote. We're on to the tricks. We understand that the Democrats now win elections by stealing elections. It is ugly. It's hard to face that in America we've come to this place. But if you don't face it, you're a fool. So we face it. We deal with it. We do what needs to be done. And assuming that Trump were to get into office, the idea would be, you were just saying this, we have to have major, utterly unprecedented in our lifetime government reform. We have seen the horror. It's like you buy a house and now you know the termites are eating this beam. And this is happening and that's happening. We need to rip this stuff out. The deep state, as we now know because of what happened to you, has taken over the government that belongs to we the people. In order to get our government back in the most fundamental sense, how do we get rid of those forces in the deep state? They are at war with freedom. They're at war with we the people that are militarized politically against what Trump represents. Because it's not Trump. It's what he represents. It is we the people. It is the founders' vision. They're at war with that. They're in bed with the globalist elites who don't give a tinker's damn about America on the founders' vision. So what would we need to do and how would we do it? What they're at war with is our Constitution. These people want to get rid of our Constitution. A couple of things. There are people in government who just need to be told, thank you for your service. When you go into your office tomorrow, I want you to clean your desk out and turn your badge in and go home and go find a job someplace else. Thank them. Because there's a lot of secretaries. There's a lot of bureaucrats at the lower levels who are just sort of following along and doing the thing. But there are entire departments that we need to be, in some cases, shut down. Like Department of Education. Goodbye. Goodbye to the Department of Education. Jimmy Carter. Jimmy Carter is the one that created the Department of Education. It's a complete disaster. That would be one of the first places. I thought actually it was Richard Nixon who did that. You might be right. But it was a naive time in American politics. That's one of those places you close the door on. The second thing is, and all these things that I'm talking about are simultaneous. And these are not that difficult to do. The other couple of places are the federal component, so Washington, D .C. component of the Department of Justice. I the know complete makeup of that organization. It doesn't mean that we shut down the attorneys generals around the country. But the way the structure inside of Washington, D .C., there are some parts of that organization that just need to be shut down and go away. The Department of Defense. The Department of Defense, inside the Department of Defense, the numbers are staggering. I won't get into all the numbers. But the mission of the Department of Defense is to prepare for, fight, and win our nation's wars. And the key word there is win. Not participate in these endless wars that these rhinos and these, you know, there's neo -liberals and there's neo -cons. On both sides, they love these wars. And that's what Eisenhower warned about when he talked about the military industrial complex. So those are three big departments. And there are some other components of departments. We also have agencies, activities, and commissions, as well as the intelligence community. Because when I talk about the FBI as an example, the FBI is a component of the Department of Justice. It's a subordinate organization. I mean, the FBI is another organization that could be completely shut down. It is not in our Constitution. We have 900 ,000 law enforcement professionals around this country. We still have them in the federal level. I mean, Secret Service, the Marshall Service. But we have states and local and city police forces that do wonderful work. And they absolutely can't stand having the FBI show up and say, you know, we're the FBI and we're in charge. So the FBI is another component within the Department of Justice, particularly in Washington, D .C., that needs to be completely shut down. I mean, that's a big thing. That's a big thing. Before you go on, I just want to say, ladies and gentlemen, that is a big thing that will be hard to do. But I have been calling on Twitter for over a year. Defund the FBI. Don't defund the police. Defund the FBI. They are a rogue organization. They're out of control. They were in many ways bad news under Hoover, who was a power monger, unelected. But they did a lot of good work. A lot of the guys, you know, the main guys who were doing the work did good work. But we have seen what has become of the FBI, and we need to take radical action. I mean, the FBI, to be simplistic, the FBI used to have really good cops. Now they've become known as thugs, and that's not a good place to be. So those are a couple of bins within the federal government. And I think that the other big piece is the intel community, right, the intel community, which I have a lot of knowledge of. And inside of the intel community, we have got to break this marble up, okay, this big marble up. And the main, what they used to call agates, right, the agates, the big, big agate marbles. The big one is the CIA. And the CIA is culturally, is so corrupt, and intellectually, frankly, it's not that good. They have not been right about anything that we have been fighting in for probably the last 30 years. And in fact, many cases, they have caused some of these wars, these endless wars that we were involved in. And it really does go back to a guy like JFK, who rose up. And JFK, I was listening to some videos of him this morning. And I'm thinking to myself, God, this man would be a diehard Republican today, be a diehard conservative today, thinking what we now know the CIA has done. And this is principally the CIA, because there's other elements of our intel agencies that do fine work, but they've also grown too big. So again, what we're going to need, and frankly, it doesn't really require Congress to say, well, we're not going to give you this money or that money. No, the executive authority of the President of the United States, with executive power granted to him or her by the Constitution of the United States of America, gives the full authority for the President of the United States to make any decisions that they want about the executive branch of the United States government. So all these things that I'm talking about are all doable. What it's going to take is it's going to take courage, it's going to take, you know what, I mean, it's going to take a bold group of people, like the founders were, early on in an administration, and you just start to say, again, you start to close the doors, you literally lock the doors, and you tell people, thank you for your service. We're going to give you a 30 -day stipend or a 60 -day stipend. I mean, we can do these things. But this is why—we have a final segment coming up with General Flynn right after the break, but I want to say, General Flynn, this is why they needed to take you out and they needed to take out Trump, because they knew that it was game over. You know where the bodies are buried. You know what needs to be done. They will not let this happen. They will do everything and anything. They will steal elections. They will lie. They have done these things. They will do these things worse, because the level of desperation on their part, they see when you say stuff like this, they know it is absolutely anything goes. They will do anything, including put a bullet in the head of anybody they don't like, as they did with JFK. We are in a war. It's ultimately a spiritual war, folks. We need to pray for this nation. Stand strong. We'll be right back. Final segment with General Flynn.

We have a really important show in store with you today, we're going to go to the breaking news that Donald Trump has announced he's likely going to face more federal charges brought to you by Jack Smith. This is not a surprise. We have been predicting it. This is a 14th Amendment play. But I want to put this in context. We're going to go through the details of it. So it's very important in context. There are several efforts underway, some of which that are obvious. And we talk about some of which that are not so obvious to prevent a populist nationalist conservative from becoming president in 2024. This is a no joke election. You know, they like to lecture us about democracy. We are not a democracy. We are a republic. But let's pretend what they mean is representative government, which we do have representative government, and we should applaud representative government. We're not just plotted, we should support it. None of this is in the tradition of the founding father's vision of representative government. These are extra constitutional. Organizations efforts underway to stop you from having a voice, they detest you, they hate you. If you're a Christian, if you're a plumber, if you work with your hands, if you're an ordinary American, they hate your values. They hate everything you stand for, and they are playing for keeps. The 2024 election, they are playing for keeps. There's a lot of troubling news, and there are some other developments that might really be difficult for Joe Biden and the Democrats. So it's not all bad news. Let's start with the news today. I'm going to allow Joe Scarborough, because I know you guys love Joe Scarborough. I get such a kick out of the audience. Any time I play a Joe Scarborough clip, I get all caps emails. And so I just want to say in advance, please send me those emails. I love receiving them. Stop playing MSNBC. I know I'm not doing it for your reaction. I'm just doing it to make sure this is your shot of expresso. I think it gets the audience on the edge of their seat. Which is MSNBC saying that Donald Trump is going to be indicted. OK, play cut 34. We have some significant breaking news. Jonathan Lemire, it looks like looks like another indictment, perhaps the most significant indictment may be coming. Donald Trump's way. Yeah, we may be on the verge of that in just a couple of days. Just in the last few minutes, Joe, Donald Trump posted on Truth Social, his fledgling social media site, to reveal this. I'm paraphrasing. He says he received a target letter from the Department of Justice from Jack Smith's office Sunday night, saying that he is indeed a target. Of the January 6th grand jury investigation, target of the grand jury January 6 investigation. OK, so we've been waiting for months about this. This is the serious one. This is the big one. This is the ballgame. This is the potential disqualifier. I have here a very handy turning point, USA, United States Constitution, which we will reference in just a second, because it all ties together. This is direct election interference. All that should be illegal. It's not. It's the federal government saying to you, the American people, we don't trust you. We cannot allow a mandate from the American people to go after the administrative state, which Donald Trump is pledging. And I think that's a really important connection before we go any further. Donald Trump is pledging to purge the deep state, to purge Leviathan using schedule F. This is one of several reasons why they are not playing around. There's other reasons. There's personal revenge, pent up resentment. I don't like him. He's a threat. He's annoying. We got to get rid of him. Uniparty hates him. The Ukraine thing is part of the southern border is part of it. But make no mistake. The if you want to get Washington, D .C. into an active posture. Say that I am your retribution, I'm going to fire people from the administrative state. The administrative state is now fighting for its life. This has been bubbling up and will result in a volcanic eruption ever since Woodrow Wilson decided to defecate on the United States Constitution. This is 100 years in the making. Woodrow Wilson versus the American people. It comes to fruition in 2024. For decades, Republicans have turned our back on the administrative state. Oh, it's fine. We can make them work for us. Not a big deal. They're like postal workers. And, you know, we don't want to declare war on it. George W. Bush was a fan of the administrative state. Even Ronald Reagan was underwhelming in disassembling it. George H .W. Bush was a creature of the administrative state, former CIA director. They got rid of Richard Nixon, the administrative state took out Richard Nixon, according to Bobby Kennedy Jr., the administrative state murdered his uncle. So this fourth branch of government, J. Edgar Hoover, Department of Homeland Security, brought to you by your Republican president, George W. Bush. All of this was a constant theme of a fourth branch of government, of an unelected bureaucracy that really runs the country. The people are no longer sovereign and it's bubbling up to this massive prize fight.
A highlight from The Wrath of Wray with Matt Gaetz
"Hey, everybody. Today on The Charlie Kirk Show, who runs the country? Is it the administrative state or is it the people? We ask that question. Matt Gaetz joins us to help explore this civilization -altering question. Email us freedom at charliekirk .com and subscribe to our podcast. Open up your podcast app and type in charliekirkshow. As always, you can support our program charliekirk .com slash support. You can email me freedom at charliekirk .com and get involved with Turning Point USA at tpusa .com. That is tpusa .com. Buckle up, everybody. Here we go. Charlie, what you've done is incredible here. Maybe Charlie Kirk is on the college campus. I want you to know we are lucky to have Charlie Kirk. Charlie Kirk's running the White House, folks. I want to thank Charlie. He's an incredible guy. His spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country. That's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Who runs the country? Do the people run the government or do the government largely run the people? The American founders established a system. They established a form of government. There should be three branches. They should check and balance one another. The complaints laid out in the Declaration of Independence that we celebrated on July 4th were largely addressed and solved at the ratification of the Constitution. The Constitution did not come ex nihilo. It did not come out of nothing. It came through an English constitutional republic tradition. It came from Roman Republican influences. Came through the study of the classics. Came through an understanding of what is a human being. How are we able to interact with one another? Biblical principles. The Constitution understood that your rights do not come from government. Your rights are given to you by God or your creator. It says very clearly in the Declaration the laws of nature and nature is God. God is mentioned four times in the Declaration of Independence. The Constitution understood that there must be first and foremost rules for government, not rules for people. In fact, it said a government shall not be able to shut you up, shall not be able to take weapons, shall not put soldiers in your home, shall not be able to spy on you, shall not be able to detain you indefinitely without a speedy trial. The United States Constitution and the following bill of rights that was ratified in 1791 was the great leap forward in self -government. That all changed with Woodrow Wilson. Woodrow Wilson, one of America's worst presidents, an evil maniacal man who actually his wife was largely running the White House towards the end of his presidency, former college professor and former president of Princeton University and governor of New Jersey, basically the accidental president who became president in 1912 when Teddy Roosevelt decided to run the Bull Moose party and primary William Howard Taft running three parties and Woodrow Wilson won with a plurality not a majority of votes. Woodrow Wilson threw away the Constitution and the promise of the founders. He said, we're more advanced than this. Blake, can you find that exact quote from Woodrow Wilson? He was more eloquent than that but I'm summarizing it rather bluntly. Woodrow Wilson basically said, we know what we want. Why do we need all these checks and balances? That government should work like a machine. It should work administratively and with that he birthed the bureaucracies, the desk workers, the administrative state. Now America was a very free country back then. You can make a lot of arguments, well we needed a department of labor and we need department of this and department of that and the entrepreneurs, the creators, the soon risk takers became outnumbered by the desk workers. The administrative state, the deep state, was exploded under Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Woodrow Wilson said, quote, the Constitution was founded on the law of gravitation. The government was to exist and move by virtue of efficacy of checks and balances. The trouble with the theory is that government is not a machine but a living thing. No living thing can have its organs offset against each other as checks and live. Woodrow Wilson made the argument, this idea of checks and balances, the tension, the slow arduous process of government, we need no more of that, we need the harmony of government and thus a fourth branch was born in defiance, a middle finger to Madison, John Jay and Hamilton. Woodrow Wilson expanded the administrative state and the administrative state was involved in displacing presidents. According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the administrative state killed JFK. The administrative state took out Richard Nixon. The administrative state controlled Reagan in some sense, controlled H .W. Bush. H .W. Bush was actually a product of the administrative state. He ran the CIA before he became vice president then president. Bill Clinton, George W. Bush did whatever the administrative state wanted. Barack Obama quickly learned a lesson, you know, he ran a very populist campaign, we're going to reform government, we're going to restore power to the people. And made Obama a very quick realization, I'm not going to war with this, I want to last all eight years and I want a Netflix deal and I don't want to get shot in a convertible and I don't want to be removed from office like Richard Nixon. What do you want admin state? And I will do as you wish. The one president who decided to wage war in the administrative state was Donald Trump. He ran against it, he said he's going to drain the swamp, he wasn't going to put up with it. Donald Trump built things in his life for 40 years in New York City, big buildings, saved Central Park, saved Wollman Rink, the New York Convention Center. And so the administrative state for him it didn't make sense, he said where is this in the Constitution, it's getting in the way of self -government. And then of course Chuck Schumer, the clip that we've played many times on this program that we might play again, comes out and he said, for a very shrewd businessman, he's being really dumb because the CIA has six ways from Sunday to get back at you. Now the administrative state, you can call it the deep state, you can call it the shadow government, they outnumber the people's representation. Congress is supposed to be the people's representation in D .C. and we don't do a very good job of it, but we're doing better. We gave the House Republicans a majority, we have some great fighters there, we have Thomas Massie who does a good job against the administrative state, Lauren Boebert, Matt Gaetz who's terrific, who's going to join us in a little bit. If an unelected bureaucracy has any power at all to take out actual elected and appointed members of government, they are too powerful and it's against the promise of representative government. Yesterday Christopher Wray testified and something quite rare happened. In real time, you saw representative government versus administrative government collide and it was so clear who actually runs this country. It is clear that we are no longer a country of the sovereign of the people. The new sovereign are the unelected, arrogant, smug members of the plutocracy of the Kingdom of Washington D .C. Christopher Wray believes he's better than you, he's untouchable, he runs the secret police, he is the head of the Stasi, he can spy on you, warn you, get you arrested, he flies on Gulf Streams at his liking, he's going to outlast any politician, he is a permanent installation of the bureaucracy. Here's Cut 85, Christopher Wray forgetting information, unaware of information, unable to talk about information. Does this strike you as someone who is afraid of congressional oversight? Play Cut 85. I can't remember the dates. Again, I just can't speak to that here. I'm not an expert. I'm not sure yet. I would really have to see more closely. I'm not sure that I can give you that number. I can't get into. I'm not aware of any such evidence. Not going to speak to that. I'll decline to comment further. I will work with the department to make sure we can figure out what information we can provide. Again, I'm not going to get into that here. Well, again, I don't want to speculate. I can't speak to the specifics. I can't speak to the specifics. The founders intent was never to have this fourth branch of government. It's totally unnecessary, but it fits a trend, a trend of humanity that you might have liberty and self -government. But over time, the failure to pass down those values to one generation to the other, the people slip and they slip and they slip and they clamor and they clamor. It's the same trajectory the Hebrews went on in the Old Testament. Congress's job is oversight and accountability. Wray wants nothing to do with it, but you could just tell. He's just like, I'm in charge. He's probably thinking to himself, I have dirt on all of you, Gates. He believes he is supreme, better than, above, superior. Remember, J. Edgar Hoover luxuriated in that exact same power and hubris. I'm going to play more from the hearing in a second. It's noteworthy because some of our superstars did very well, but Christopher Wray sits atop the throne. The American people don't any longer. So what is on the ballot in 2024? What is at stake in this next election? This won't necessarily resonate with, you know, non -political voters, but this is important with repeating. It is a philosophical election of what form of government do you want? If you vote for the American Democrat Party and Joe Biden, you do not believe in self -government. You believe in a permanent oligarchy. You believe in dozens of Christopher Wray's philosopher kings that have outright authority over you. Donald Trump is the only candidate in the race, maybe Vivek Ramaswamy and others. DeSantis has talked a good game on this, to his credit, but there's a reason why he's indicting him. And I'll show you contrast because the traditional Republican view is to cozy up to these intel agencies. They're doing good work. They're keeping us safe. How? Are you guys going after child sex traffickers or are you going after political dissidents? Like before you, I don't know, indict Rudy Giuliani or raid James O 'Keeffe's home or go after Steve Bannon, why don't you go after the human smugglers that are highlighted in Sound of Freedom? Chris Christie goes on television to defend Christopher Wray. This is the unit party position. This is the orthodoxy. The FBI is necessary. This is showmanship. Play cut 79. I want to respond to something that Chris Christie said on Fox News earlier today. He said that Christopher Wray had delivered extraordinary results. The problem is they're just extraordinarily awful. And like Chris Christie criticized us for engaging in fundraising theater during this committee. And I'm not going to take my notes on fundraising from a guy who was a lobbyist and was snout down in the lobbyist financial money laundering situation when he was raising money from them as governor of New Jersey. So I'm more likely to take like Chris Christie's exercise plan than I am his fundraising strategy. I think that's Gates on Fox News. That wasn't a clip. I could tell immediately person's way too skinny to be Chris Christie's. I could see it right on there. OK, I think it's 78. I don't know what's going on here. Play cut 78. What you saw today, I think, was an animated and combative FBI director who's defending the men and women who work for him every day and do a great job and protect us from domestic terrorism, from international terrorism and from these drug cartels and are helping state and local law enforcement every day with their things. So, yeah, I think Chris Ray has done a very good job. And I think, Luke, a lot of the stuff you see today, John, is theater. The people trying to raise money for campaigns doesn't mean there are problems at the FBI. There are. But I believe Chris is a guy who can get it fixed and he's fixed a lot of them already. Chris Christie represents a Republican vision. Again, he has no political support, but it's there. Donors love this. Some donors love Chris Christie. He's going to raise a ton of money, already has, which is we should make friends with the regime. We should cozy up to the UN party. Eat me last. I want to get invited to the parties. The administrative state can help me help me get contracts, help protect me. What form of government do you want? Mike Pence, remember, defended the Department of Justice. Chris Christie defends the Department of Justice and the FBI because they just don't want to get indicted and they want a comfortable life. They want a life that they can feel good. Oh, I'm on the right side of history. So who is sovereign in this country? Founders and the promise of 1776 and 1787 and 1791 is the people are sovereign. That country no longer exists. And you could see it, by the way, we're going to play more and more tape. We have Matt Gaetz coming up next. Just the smugness, the smugness, the lack of wanting to answer questions. Let me just give you another here. Christopher Wright asked by pick pick your pick your fighter ISA. How many people were there on January 6? He doesn't need to answer. He doesn't care. He's not afraid of Congress, but Congress is afraid of him. Makes you think how much blackmail Christopher and the FBI has on these members of Congress. Play cut 67. How many individuals were either FBI employees or people that the FBI had made contact with were in the January 6th entry of the Capitol and surrounding area? So I really need to be careful here talking about where we have or have not used confidential human sources. Was there one or more? Was there one or more individuals that would fit that description on January 6th that were in or around the Capitol? I can't again, I just can't speak to that here. You can't speak to it because I don't work for you, Darryl ISA. I don't work for the people. I'm the king. I run the secret police. Do you know who you're talking to? I'm the guy that gets to put you in jail. I am the law. Silly Congress person that's to deal with elections.
Thomas J. Baker Describes the Damage Done by James Comey
"Talking to Thomas J. Baker, the author of an extraordinary book, a very important book, The Fall of the FBI, How a Once Great Agency Became a Threat to Democracy. You are, in my mind, the face of the FBI to most Americans through the decades. A loyal, patriotic American doing very difficult, often dangerous work. So I think that it hurts you more than it hurts us to see this agency, which it was always flawed, but the point is it was usually doing really good, important work, to see it become what it's become. When you mention Comey, it's a stunning thing to me that somebody could be so magnificently arrogant as to do what he did. I mean, it's one thing to badmouth Hoover, but my goodness, did we learn no lessons over the decades. The idea that James Comey, who still thinks very highly of himself, would be able in the modern era to politicize something that is so much bigger than him, that affects everything. Can you speculate on how folks like this could have allowed things to get out of hand, could have allowed themselves to participate in things like this, what you just described with Crossfire Hurricane? You used the word arrogance, and that certainly is part of it, and you made the comparison or you made the reference to J. Edgar Hoover. Comey was, in my assessment, the worst director the FBI ever had, and he did the most damage to the FBI and its reputation, far greater than J. Edgar Hoover. J. Edgar Hoover had almost half a century to commit some errors. Comey did his damage in a couple of years, and his damage was fundamental.
Gregg Jarrett: The FBI Needs to Be Dismantled and Reconstructed
"On the scobes uh... monkey trial so that's a fascinating topic i want to talk about but are you a lawyer a dictator you are one of the guys who blew the doors off of the collusion hoax in the spygate scandal one of which was real spygate one of which wasn't and we're seeing the same playbook again greg of this is just incredible how many times the f -b -i's getting away with this i mean they have this document according to this whistleblower this ten twenty three they're not denying its existence where it's alleged that a reliable source to the fbi brought forward credible information about a five million dollar bribe to the guy sitting in the white house and the fbi is again just withholding if i mean what do we need to do to get some credibility back to this agency well i have long argued that the fbi needs to be mantled and reconstructed with honest people at the top and it's not you know it's not agents the in the field that those are honorable hard -working people they're brave they keep us safe no it's the seventh floor of the hoover building and you know commie and mccabe and understruck and jim baker and the whole gang kevin klein smith they ruined the fbi i they politicized uh... what was once the premier law enforcement and see in america they weaponized it for political purpose is and they did it obviously in the russia hoax and uh... you know they're still at it other running a protection racket along with the department of justice in merrick garland protecting the in family crime syndicate uh... there's a plethora of evidence of influence lean schemes that would normally constitute crimes but for
John Zmirak Shares His Thoughts on the Wide-Open Southern Border
"All through the weekend, we kept hearing news about the border. And I thought, on Monday morning, I've got to ask John about the border, I still don't particularly understand what exactly is happening. If anyone can say what exactly is happening. But what are your general thoughts? And then we can get into some particulars. Sure. The border is essentially open from the American point of view from the Mexican point of view it's controlled by the cartels, which are human traffickers and drug smugglers. We have ceded sovereignty of the U.S. border, not even to the Mexican government, but to Mexican criminal gangs. It's that simple. Okay, John. So when people say that, like, I know that's true. I know you're not making that up. But then the question becomes, how is that possible? How is it possible that you have a United States government that would allow anything even close to what you just said? How does that become possible? Well, first, I'll give you the legal loopholes through which it happens. Okay. The border is crawling with Soros Soros type attorneys, attorneys who are funded by nonprofits by organizations that make money from the U.S. government spending money on immigrants, legal and illegal. One of the worst is Catholic charities, which is neither Catholic nor a charity. It is about a Catholic Planned Parenthood. Catholic charities exist to suction to Hoover up federal money and give some of it to the bishops.
The Truth About Stanford Students
"When I spoke at Stanford many years ago, I've spoken since, but many years ago, I spoke at Stanford, and I had Stanford students and faculty on my show. I was there for a number of days, the Hoover institution invited me. And I remember thinking, wow, the only clear thinkers I'm having here are the guys in the athletics program, I specifically remember the football players. They were the only conservatives. They were the only ones who made sense. Now, obviously a lot of athletes have been poisoned now, like LeBron James. I live in LA and I'm not rooting for the Lakers because he's not a good man. But nevertheless, a lot more wisdom from this football player than from the prime minister of New Zealand.
Vivek Ramaswamy: If President, Creating a Plan for Personnel
"The vive Rama Swami were to win the presidency Do you have a plan for personnel Because I make the case you're going to have the greatest plans in the world You screw up personnel your presidency is done for day one That's a good private sector lesson Dan and having built companies the people are everything I don't blame Trump but I want to learn from both his mistakes and what he did well Frankly I've said this if I'm president I want Trump as an adviser because he's actually taken on the same deep state that I'm looking to take that agenda to the next level I want those insights I want that understanding of how to actually do it So here's my philosophy Is actually not just people selection but you have to actually purge what's already there So you have to identify certain government agencies that have gone so far off the grid So far off the reservation of where they should be like the Department of Education like the FBI and in both of those cases I have pledged to shut them down And in the case of the government indicated the Department of Education which actually visited in front of Washington D.C. yesterday I went right in front of it as I said We're going to shut it down That was not coming back I also went to the J. Edgar Hoover building in Washington D.C. yesterday And there I said yes of course we need federal law enforcement Of course that's an important function But when a particular agency and its culture becomes so corrupted and politicized the only right answer is to shut it down and create something new built from scratch like a startup to take its place And I think that that's actually one of the models that Trump did not use or maybe he didn't get to using as I said I want to take that agenda to the next level learning from those learning from those experiences I'm not saying I would have done it right on the first try either but I also don't believe in having to relearn the same lessons build on the foundation laid learn from it maybe even learn from him directly as I said I take him as an adviser but actually take that agenda the full distance to actually get that job done with moral authority and principled confidence Kind of like Reagan did in many ways too That's what I want to deliver Yeah
Is Xi Preparing for War?
"Chinese leader Xi Jinping says he is preparing for war at the annual meeting of China's parliament and its top political advisory in March. The theme of war readiness through four separate speeches in one instance telling his generals to dare to fight. Then we drop down to orville shell from the Hoover institution. I don't think he's been before your committee yet. I think she has a pure Leninist. He does that. He has certain aspirations to reduce the inequalities in Chinese society, but his real focus is on building the wealth and power of the state. And he views party organizations the key to the goal, Lenin two is a party builder, in essence, repudiating the Deng approach. Do you agree with both that, preparing for war and party over people? I do, first let me say that John pomfret wrote a phenomenal book about China and the United States called the beautiful country in the middle kingdom that I recommend to everybody who's interested in the subject. I guess that pottinger was our first part of our first hearing. And in his testimony, he gets at something that both he and pomfret double down on in this piece, which is that Xi Jinping and other members of the Politburo say one thing to a western audience. One thing that the denizens of Davos are desperate to believe, but they say an entirely different thing to other party members to their populace. And pottinger and his testimony talked it about it as one of the great magic tricks of the modern era. And that chairman Xi would actually agree on that point because he refers to the party's propaganda and its influence activities, its united front work as a magic weapon for advancing the regime's interests and partner went on to say you could call the CCP the Harry Houdini of Marxist Leninist regimes, the David Copperfield of communism or the Chris angel of autocracy. So I commend his testimony to everybody and for a while now Xi Jinping seems to be preparing his populace to endure an enormous economic pain and sacrifice that would ensue if they got into a confrontation with the west. This is why the cult of the Korean War has become so popular in communist China as an example of a moment when Mao risked everything to confront the west and the Chinese people had to endure a great pain and sacrifice. They emerged as a great power on the world stage. So all of this is very concerning. This is why we need to do everything possible to enhance deterrence and help Taiwan defend itself. And I'm looking forward to joining speaker McCarthy as we greet president Sonia and Wang of Taiwan next week.
Can a Free Market Work in a Large Economy? Amity Shlaes Explains
"Interesting issue that in reading and preparing to talk with you today and tell them that Coolidge is your opinion of scale. The 20s, 30s economies compared to, say, the 60, 70, 89, even up until the days of comedy. Is the scale economically still viable? As you said, coolers would have followed the past precedents, whereas Roosevelt Hoover even to an extent followed a new president of bigger involvement in government. Is that where can that still work today? Many of us like myself believe it can. But is that? Is that about it? And can a free market work in a very large economy such as we have today, that's what you're asking? Yeah, without the quote, because we've heard it the last couple of weeks. Oh, well, we've got to protect these investors. Government has to step in. But that's related, but of course you can think of the European Union, it used to be individual countries that got together. It's policy isn't frankly that much different than the policy, the EU of the individual countries. I think with the banks, you know, in a little economy like Iceland suffers as much as a big economy when it's caught in a policy storm or a wild downturn. I think it's more we have a fatherly state. A patriarchal or matriarchal. It's not a gender. And we've trained voters to believe government must always step in. So our real problem is education in America. We've undermined Americans by giving them the impression they need a permanent babysitter.
How History Can Inform Future Economics With Amity Shlaes
"Dad rather early in the 1930s. He didn't have a sense of the whole, you know, set up, but if he was to say, had lived another 15 years. And was looking at the 30s from the site of the perspective of the 40s maybe or at least, but what would you say because he was and I've heard you say this for all the fun and some other interviews, how do you think he would have approached or looked at what happened in the end of the beginning through Roosevelt in particular, the government interaction with the economy? Was you're posing a counterfactual, but it's a great question, sir, because policy the thesis of my forgotten man book, the truth is the government made it worse. In Coolidge's own lifetime, there have been a number of crashes. Serious panics of Wall Street worse than what we're seeing this week as bad as 2008 in terms of the market going down. And those responses were different to the response to the government under presidents Hoover and Roosevelt more importantly. So you probably want to say Coolidge would have reacted as his predecessors and authorities preceding him would have done. A good example there is and remember, there was no SEC. Right, right. And there was no fed up until the mid teens, right? So first of all, I would have said, I'm not sure that that's Washington's job. Do you hear the lawmakers today talking about the banks that are scrambling about signature? And so on and Credit Suisse, they would have said, well, that's happening, but it's not our job, but there are many, many crashes in what was the collective if you ask all the institutions that did exist and evaluate them. What was the collective leader response to a rough depression in the early 20s? Well, one, they doubled interest rates. That's interesting. Wait, you're not supposed to double interest rates in a downturn. That's what we're hearing on the radio this morning. Here we are in March 2023. And they cut the government back farther.
Sgt. Tyler Vargas-Andrews Testifies on Afghanistan Evacuation
"Going to hear him testify that he was given orders to stand down. They were they would have had the opportunity to take out the suicide bomber, but they were ordered by Biden's Pentagon to stand down. Let's take a listen to the testimony of sergeant Tyler Vargas Andrews. Over the communication network we passed that there was a potential threat in an idea attack imminent. This was a series that could get a requested engagement authority while my team leader was ready on the M1 ten. Some automatic sniper system. The response leadership did not have the engagement authority for us. Do not engage. I requested for the battal commander, lieutenant colonel Brad white, to come to the tower to see what we did. While we waited for him, psychological operations individuals came to our tower immediately and confirmed the suspect met the suicide bomber description. He eventually arrived and we showed him our evidence. The photos we had of the two men. We reassured him of the ease of fire on the suicide bomber. Pointedly, we asked him for engagement authority and permission, we asked him if we could shoot. Our battal commander said, and I quote, I don't know, end quote. Myself and my team leader asked very harshly. Well, who does? Because this is your responsibility, sir. He can reply, he did not know, but would find out. We received no update and never got our answer. Eventually, the individual disappeared to this day, we believe he was a suicide bomber. We made everyone on the ground aware operations had briefly halted, but then started again, plain and simple. We were ignored. Our expertise was disregarded, no one was held accountable for our safety. About 1730 staff sergeant Darren Hoover, friend and mentor, came to get me from the tower to go help find an Afghan interpreter in the crowd. We found the interpreter and his brother, born with American passports. They told us 5 told us of 5 family members still in the canal.

Sean Davis: The FBI Was Conceived on Corruption
"Faith and fidelity to our institutions is almost completely gone And how Christopher wray who claims to be an institutionalist it just continues to ignore this It's just stunning to me I mean he's almost at the point now where I believe damage wise He's as bad if not worse than Comey Oh he's awful He's absolutely awful There's a little difference between the two and that I think ray is just generally incompetent and cowardly whereas I think Comey himself is just pure evil But I almost think it's too easy to blame the problems at the FBI on ray or on come on or whoever people forget that the FBI was conceived in corruption Okay this is the agent that agency that J. Edgar Hoover ran and he had them blackmail and come up with blackmail information against members of Congress and politicians The FBI today sits in the J. Edgar Hoover building Okay So I wish it were just this nice great institution that had always been doing good fair above board work and just a couple of bad apples got in the way I don't think that's the case I think that entire institution is rotten from the ground up it needs to be eliminated and defunded and we actually need to find a way to have a federal law enforcement agency that doesn't exist to corrupt everything in politics and in people's lives based on what a ruling regime happens to think Because look I don't like red China I don't like Russia but day in and day out in this country the FBI is the biggest threat to our freedoms and liberty Bigger than any other single entity in the world right now It's the FBI If the FBI that's going and throwing people in jail for having the audacity to walk into a public building through a door held open for them by police during business hours I mean it's criminal
'The Coup We Never Knew' With Prof. Victor Davis Hanson
"To be the most strategic public thinker of weight of consequence in America today. And his latest piece, which is titled the coup we never knew. Well, basically I read it on air because it was that important. But now we have him with us from the Hoover institution from Stanford University, the author of a veritable library of works on ancient history, strategy, domestic politics, anything with his name on the spine of the book is worth your time professor. Victor Davis Hanson, welcome back to America first. Thank you for having me, Seth. Now I have some big questions to do with the so what of your latest piece, which was unusual in terms of style, because basically it's just a list of questions. A list of questions across a complete panoply of topics from natural gas to lack of sovereignty and open borders from the point of view of the scribe of the man of letters. I'm just curious, and this is a peek into the sausage factory, if you will, what made you write a piece purely positing? I mean, it works. I read it aloud to my wife on a long car trip, then I read it to my 3 million listers on the radio show. Was there some trigger, something that made you say, okay, I'm just going to ask questions for a thousand words. I wanted to capture the bewilderment that I had since to cross the country, and it was almost as if no one yet has explained the multiplicity of radical changes in American life or the effect that they've had on people in the result is sort of a bewilderment. We all in the abstract know how they happen. And we all know the effect in the future of their consequences, but the process, I think, is what would be Willard, so I wanted to somehow find a rhetorical way of conveying that

"Larry summers of Harvard in Neil Ferguson of the Hoover institution So let's pick up on this question about what the sanctions we've seen imposed on Russia might mean for the world monetary order Neil you wrote a terrific piece for Bloomberg I must say addressing this question in the possibility that it may change the world order the way prior conflicts and disasters have affected world order How do you see it this time Well wars and plagues change the monetary system It's not as if the monetary system is something that's the same over the centuries When the war broke out ten weeks ago a number of theories did the rounds both of the major theories were wrong Number one was well the Russians are going to get around sanctions using cryptocurrency And the other theory was while we've just done sanctions against the Russian Central Bank everybody is going to want to get out of dollars to be protected from future U.S. sanctions Well in fact it turned out that there was really no way in any significant scale that the Russians could evade sanctions with cryptocurrency probably aid to Ukraine in the form of crypto mattered more But even that's really quite trivial compared with the aid that the Ukrainians have got from the United States and its allies As for the dollar well I hardly need to tell you David that it's actually been extraordinarily strengthened in the last ten weeks particularly against some currencies like the Japanese yen But that doesn't really have a whole lot to do with the war I mean to some extent it does in the sense that in risk off situations people turn to the dollar but I think more importantly the fed is tightening and not all other central banks are keeping up with it So I think there were a couple of wrong theories I think the really interesting question to ask is not so much is the dollar one day going to be replaced by another Fiat currency I mean that debate has been going on throughout my entire lifetime It was happening in the late 1960s And I think it's the wrong question as long as there isn't a comparably large and liquid attractive currency At this point the only potential contender would be the Euro in terms of scale But I don't really see that challenge as being a successful one So the dollar is the dominant Fiat currency in the existing monetary system The question is does technological change in the advent of new forms of electronic payments.

Now, do you have to give in to every single thing that your ex wants you to do with your children? Not necessarily. But I think there are more moments where you have to talk things out. And I think for Kanye, he believes, you know, I think a lot of people really, truly believe that the Kardashians run the media. Oh yeah. And they don't. You know what I mean? No. And they don't run the media. So I think for him, he is playing this in the public opinion, the court of public opinion trying to move this story and try to make sure that you guys know that I've been calm and I've been asking for this. Calmly, but now I'm about to turn up. Also think, okay, I'm just thinking from a woman's side. I think he's trying to control Kim. He's upset because Kim's moving on and dating. You know, when he did that Larry Hoover concert, he did that he dedicated that whole song to her, you know, come back to me, Kim. And she's like, no. So, the only thing that you have left, come on justice, when you go through a divorce, the only thing you have left that can control. It's your kid. It's the kids. Yeah. So this is what you see playing out.

Okay. How do you do? This is the classic move. How do you get somebody's attention? Well, okay, the kids. You know, okay. Say she takes north off. It'll be something else. It'll be something. I think you have to be right, but this is why. I always tell people, look at that man next to you one night when he's dead asleep. Look at it real close. And really ask yourself, is this the person I can see myself raising children with with or without a marriage? Because there are times where you can look at a man and say, I can be married to you, but I definitely can't have kids with you. And there are times when you look at a man as well. We can have kids, but we can't be married. We can't be married. That's it right there right there. That's why they had.

Not once did that muffler. Not once did it make noise. It was perfectly seated the way it was supposed to be. As opposed to put duct tape on it. And a few miles later, we would have had another problem. And just to specify, they didn't just have zip ties for fun. They were not kidnappers or anything. They were servicemen or I don't know, they look like they were doing plumbing or something. They had those reflector jackets lifesavers or whatever they're called. But they were so grateful for them. So they give us some good advice, which we did not heed to our next destination. Do you remember too? Yeah. But yes, that this illustrates how much we need to have a skills class in high school where we need to learn all these life skills that we will take into the real world.

Right, 25 till the top of the hour toll free on numbers. 809 41 Sean final thoughts as we continue from our last half hour Mark Schmitz. He lost his 20 year old son, Lance Corporal Jared Smiths, one of the 13 Marines killed at the bombing at Cars High International Airport in Kabul last week. Darren Hoover's with US, he lost his 31 year old Marine Corps staff sergeant son. Darren Taylor Hoover. Um Erin, I'll let you say anything You want to say about your son. You You did meet Biden. At drovers. And if you want to talk about it, fine. If you don't I don't care. Um, no, We didn't meet him. Um We talked it over the family and decided that we would we didn't want anything to do with him. Um We felt like that's what Taylor would have wanted us to do. Now don't get me wrong. Taylor was over there. He was doing his job He was leading his Marines. And Fraud and we've heard this from, uh, a bunch of his friends. Uh, through different channels are a bunch of his his man through different channels who friends and to families. That he was going around. To each of his Marines that were in that firefight prior to The, uh The suicide bomber. Going around at each of his Marines, keeping them on track on targets. Of the firefight, making sure they all had the ammunition that they needed, making sure they were staying focused staying in the fight. Two years a natural born leader. From from his early years. Up through the Marine Corps. He's always been that from his football team. Uh, through high school or junior high, actually. Elementary school, Middle school and high school. Um, he was one of the leaders on the field. Um, like I said, before, he's very loving, very caring. But when it came to doing the job that he needed to do He got right down to the brass tacks and And Helped build up the Marines that he was in charge of there was one particular marine, and I forgive me. I can't remember his name. But When he can't win this Younger Marine came into Taylor's unit when he was a sergeant. He said that at first, Taylor scared the living crap out of him. Because he just stare you down and keep staring at you. Until It made it very uncomfortable. And if he was really mad, that's when he started yelling. But it's just his his demeanor. Um, very calm under pressure, um, and wanted to build those marines up to What they were expected to do, and he was given a lot of training. He was getting a lot of opportunities to train those Marines. And you know what, Like I said, that's that's what he enjoyed. That's what he loved. It was his passion. It was his absolute passion to be the best Marine that he could be. And I think he did that. He wound up giving The ultimate sacrifice. That a Service member can give And Being a Marine. I don't think As we've talked about as a family, we don't think It's tough to say, but we don't think he would have wanted to go out any other way if he had to do it. He he would go out the way he did. With his fellow Marines. Um both men and women. Right by his side, fighting to the very end for just to protect those people, which is honorable in and of itself. But to do it in the manner in which you did it. And ultimately give up his life in order to fill that duty. Unfortunately, that's the way it turned out. Um and right now. We can't. None of us can quantify. How many potential lives they saved that day or the following days, right after that, Um, but just like Mr Schmidt said. They're all heroes. Every last one of them and To be disrespected like they were at Dover. When they were coming off the plane. Um, with Mr Biden looking as watch each time the Each time the salute was released and the Marines would go back up. Pick up another box and bring it down was was disrespectful as As anything I've ever seen and I I were struggling with that. We're really struggling with that one. But like you said, is all about the boys and the girls. Um they're heroes. We want to keep them in the forefront never to be forgotten. And unfortunately with war we know this happens. But you're right. This one was preventable. Mark. I agree. I mean, I don't think there's an American downside that doesn't agree that we need to be out of this kind of second country. But It could have happened differently. And I think our boys and girls would still be with us today if it had been handled differently. Mark. We talked so much about your son and it's such a grave tragedy. What's happened to all of our Marines in Afghanistan and brave men and women. One of the things I wanted to discuss with you is the president his press conference yesterday, where he called this withdrawal from Afghanistan. Quote a success. What are your thoughts? Honestly, we've been, uh we've been more concerned about the Dealing with her son, Jared, and I didn't bother even watch, so I have no comment. No, I completely understand that. If I may.

That's the reason she going to do this. And now you throw in. This medical condition were quite literally all of those factors could trigger an epileptic episode. Which if she's lost and gets even more stress out and this is like the perfect storm but like imagine she gets lost not on the trail. No food terrible weather goes into an epileptic seizure. Like that's it. You're done like when you go into a seizure. It's like running a marathon. Yeah and you need to replenish those nutrients and have someone there to help you. So i my my whole thing was going towards. Initially maybe she wanted to disappear. I don. I wouldn't think it was a suicide trip. Yeah but more like a disregard for the risk type of thing. She didn't go out there to die but like screw it. I'm just going to do this thing and see what happens. Yeah to take a risk and just ended up being the worst possible case possible. Because she didn't do a research she didn't know what she was doing. She had a medical condition That that's kind of my vote. I think it's like the perfect storm of of things could've gone wrong. Yeah that's were my guts telling me. Yeah you know. I think obviously unlike a lot of cases we cover. I think this one clearly the facts point towards you know that i will say after doing our previous episode about the the the psychopath that was murdering people outdoors and the fact that we did do episode sixteen on the the murder of hood and larue. That happened on eighteen nineteen ninety. It is not outside the realm of possibility for murder to happen on the appalachian trail very rare. We're not saying it's just so you think like the possibility plays. I would agree with you. And i think based off of that last episode and yeah i think we've been discounting how credible that could be. I think i only say that because no trace of her was ever found. Which playing devil's advocate against my own theory doesn't mean anything because it's so vast out there and this is a pretty wild section of the. I think it's entirely possible that you know if there's thick brush and stuff that she could could have you know passed away in not been found yet it just. I don't know just kind of bugs me. This isn't like summer out west where it's mountainous and there's a lot of crevasses places where a body could fall. It's you know its main. I mean it's thick brush. But it's still. It's like the forests in northern wisconsin. Almost you know. Yeah i know that. Just that's the only thing i mean. Obviously she was unprepared not conditioned all that stuff which huge factor but. I don't know something just you know. Maybe maybe this place you hiking by yourself She's a woman you know. Hiking the at Who knows but yeah. I don't know this was a little shorter of an episode I wanted to cover it just because You know it's the only open case right now on the. At and that's incredible in it of itself because that's such a long trail and if a listener or if we find information that so that there are new. I wonder if it's the only one of somebody who is specifically hiking. At 'cause i bet there's people that have gone missing in parks that at goes through. But like i bet it because that list is much shorter yet. Yeah i believe people who set out to hike some section of. at or through hike. Yeah i believe it is the only open case of a person who was actually planned to hike the appalachian trail okay. That doesn't seem as crazy to me. No but i mean it's still you know with because there's been cases that would assume that they've been solved either found because like there's definitely h- like bad things have happened people. They're not relatively saying that like it's been foul play by like accidents. Usually recover the bodies or rescue the people so this is the only one that has no explanation it. It does seem a little crazy. Just be the fact that two to three million people hike the at every year and what this is what's cool about having a big audience. Now people love to let you know when you're wrong. We'll find a real quick. We're off on this. I just thought it was you know. Usually we like to do an episode with a little more meat on the bone But i think it's important to do some of these episodes where like this This lady has nat gotten the exposure. She should have for you know going missing. It's now it's pushing almost forty years and there's been no breaks in the case think thankfully this investigative reporter dug into it a few years ago. Are we know even less. So i think it was an interesting an interesting story. Anybody listening ever ever get hiking in that area of the a t you know you know. Look a little closer just you know. That's how a lot of these cases get solved as a hiker. We'll just stumble across something one day. Yeah which stinks. But it's also like good that we get some closure every now and then because of it. Yeah so let us know what you all think. I don't think we've asked the audience that way in recently.

We may mix in every once in a while kind of a true crime episode. It's still kind of related to the outdoors Just to kind of shake things up. So i like doing it and i agree with you. I saw a lot of people commenting that they really enjoyed it. So yeah and if you wanna help shout show head over to our patriot page for our last episode. I did a solo episode.

"I'm your host, Josh Barrow on the right is long. He Chen fellow at the Hoover Institution on the left of Savile Row. Mon, president of Demos and Our special guest is Anna Palmer, CEO and founder of Punch Bowl News. Georgia has its first black senator and its first Jewish senator and its first democratic winds and Senate races in 20 years. John also often Raphael Warnock won Tuesday's runoff elections in Georgia Ausaf by about a point and Warnock by about two points. Georgia has this unusual system where there's a runoff between the top two candidates if nobody gets 50% in the general election. Turnout was extremely high for runoff almost as high as the presidential election and higher on the Democratic side than on the Republican side. Black turnout was especially strong and combined with the growth and leftward shift of Atlanta suburbs. That meant Democrats were able to get over the top. Before we go back and talk about what this very narrow democratic majority means for policy making in this in this Congress and in the beginning of the bite administration was willing. If you could just reflect a little bit on. How is it that Democrats got over the top in Georgia? And what does it mean for Democratic politics? Yeah, it's I mean, it's drowned out by so much that has happened in these last few days. But it is such an important story, not just for this election, but for what it suggests. For the next many years of our politics, right? I think this is a huge watershed moment. Because what you're seeing here in Georgia, like what we saw in Arizona and other states back in November is a different a different coalition emerging in this in the South and in the Southwest you if you look at the early turnout numbers Right war, knocking us off. We're really powered by incredibly strong turnout and huge margins among young people. People of color on, uh colluding working class folks as well of all races. And this was really a multi racial working class coalition that resonated with Warnock and Ossoff's message. Now it was razor thin, of course, but the margins aren't even a little bit better than Joe Biden's margins, which is interesting. I think what this shows is that the old notion of your run middle of the road kind of Republicans light under a Democratic banner. That's that's not really the model for one. I cannot see if they were very unapologetic about their progressive ideas. They ran on $2000 relief checks, which we've talked about before also clear about their commitments to racial and economic justice. But they're very much you know, Sons of Georgia, and I think that's really important. It also shows a model for long term politics, right. This was not just about one election. This is the product of a decade plus of on the ground organizing and mobilizing by folks like Natasha Browne, Stacey Abrams and say, who fought right. These air leaders who have been working in communities on the ground to activate those constituencies, and that's adorable shift that I think will continue. And love. He wouldn't What are lessons here for Republicans have been obviously one thing that there's a lot of consternation about in the party is allies of President Trump, saying that the elections in Georgia were rigged. President Trump himself saying that and wondering about the extent to which that dampen turnout on the Republican side, no rubber guns actually a very good turnout in this in this runoff, just not as astoundingly good as Democrats had But at the margin in a close race, you could see that having been dispositive. But then the other thing is the long run trend in Georgia, which you know, in addition to the state, diversifying Republicans have just lost a lot of support and what was once their Heartland in Georgia, which is to say, you know, middle to upper income suburbs of Atlanta that have become much bluer. What is he? What does it look like for Republicans to try to reverse what caused them to lose in the state of Georgia and not have it just slide farther and farther away from them in the way that Virginia and Colorado I've done due to similar demographic changes. Yeah. I mean, there are some trends in Georgia. You look at Arizona, even parts of Texas. There are trends clearly that Republicans do need to Be concerned with their demographic in nature that is driving the kinds of changes that may make it more difficult for Republicans to assemble the kind of coalition they need to win electorally now that having been said You also saw hints of a multi racial coalition developing That's right of center as well in places like you know, Miami Dade County and certainly parts of Arizona parts of Southwest Texas. So there are these really kind of interesting, confusing in some ways, messages about the kinds of coalitions that were built and the types of outcomes we saw in this election of what it means. I think going forward, the Republican Party does have to be committed to a few things. First of all, it's got to be committed to being A movement that can articulate what it's four. That's beyond just the machinations and thoughts of a single person. I think when you associate when a party becomes so closely associated with one figure, and when that figure is so divisive and troubling As we've seen that creates a very difficult dynamic. We talked about Georgia. What was clear was. You're right. Republican Turnout wasn't bad. It wasn't as good as it could have been. It wasn't as good as it was in a presidential election, and maybe we shouldn't have expected that. But what was clear was that Donald Trump did drive turnout to a certain degree for himself. And so the question is. How does the Republican Party become viable as a party? That is not just the party of one man or the party of one man's policies? But more than that, a movement that stands for the kinds of things that people can readily identify, and I think the Republican Party's gonna have to spend some time thinking through what those things are, you know? Is it the traditional party of Markets and opportunity and personal freedom, Strong national defense or is it a party that some of that with some populism mixed in and I think that debate is going to be an interesting one that will play out over these next several months and years. Out of the Senate will be divided 50 50 once the new senators from Georgia and the new senator from California to replace Kamila Harris, or are seated..
