S. and all of them are citizens joining us on the phone now is a senior member of the house U. S. representative Tom Cole is a Republican from Oklahoma good morning Sir Hey good morning to you so you were one of the few Republicans who openly criticized the president's comments do you think they were racist now I don't I think they were inappropriate and offensive but again I don't think they were racist why don't you think they were racist right because I simply don't I don't think I don't think the president is a racist I think that was one of the reasons why the the by the very ill advised resolution broke down safely along party lines it over reached and frankly you know was a bipartisan sat up as opposed to being a serious and thoughtful discussion about a problem when you could teach the president's comments will you critiquing them for in that event well first of all I don't think you ever tell anybody to go back where they're from in America almost all of Americans are from someplace else it's not an appropriate thing and second I just thought that you don't you also don't question anyone to an American citizen you are an American were the were born someplace else or not so I think that implication bothered me a great deal and I just thought it was an appropriate way to talk to any American let alone for American should middle acted by their fellow Americans to represent them in Congress you just don't think it was racist now I don't currently I also think that if you you have to remember your to theirs we've had colleagues routinely call down by presiding officers for using inappropriate language for the president we've had people that have said the federal workers are you a running concentration camps we've had people that have said if you support Israel you do it for the money we've had people that have first forward to the president with vulgar after faction said they're going to impeach him none of those people were subject to resolution so the double standard here in terms of accepting comments on your own side of the aisle and criticizing essentially sim would you know others white sticker simmering on other is just you know it's breathtakingly inappropriate listen is here to see those people are not the president of the United States they are members of the same rules of decorum so this idea that it's okay for everybody but the president to say something I don't go with that look I think the rules of behavior and procreate language pride equally to everybody condition the president will likely hit some type of nerve along these lines again possibly soon are you comfortable with the Republican Party having to come to either defend or to cry the president's words again and again I think people have to make their own individual decisions about that I don't see this as a the Republican Party doing something I see it as individual members elected officials reacting so would I change the language of the present I work but when I change the language of my democratic colleagues again routinely call down by presiding officer on the floor on the floor which is actually a place that has a much higher standard of what's acceptable at the speaker found out yesterday you know again if you're going to do this you have to be willing to do it to everybody and I don't spend a lot of time quite frankly commenting on what other people say is if you do that you're not going to be saying anything you're just gonna be commenting on other people's comments so better to keep your head down do you work all right but when the president makes these remarks are they don't do much to add to his base in the country this diverse we know that I ease this is a losing strategy that he's pursuing well how far out you know a lot of people thought he was pursuing a Louise losing strategy in two thousand sixteen and he prevail so we'll find out about that but if you're asking me what I prefer the language be more traditional more presidential I would and do I think that would be helpful to him politically I do because I think sometimes gets in the way of a very good economy a very good record on deregulation very good effort to rebuild the matter the American military has a lot to that I think you could point to that sometime just sort of rhetoric can distract from when I was little political guy I regret that I'd rather focus on the substance because I think it's a winner for the press we talk to former Republican representative Ileana ros Lehtinen a couple months ago as she left office she was the first Latina elected to Congress and she told us if the Republican Party fails to attract more diverse people it's just gonna lose a whole generation limply which he said we need to pay attention to the changing demographics of our country and we have not been attuned to that we've been appealing to one certain section of of America is she right conger I think she makes a very good point and certainly the point about appealing to diverse groups is absolutely critical America frankly it always has been but it's even more so today and you know again I don't think that was certainly proof President Bush or many of our members so but the point is it is an important point for Republicans to think about and fortunately there are conservatives in every racial or ethnic group in America but you've got a welcome them and you've got to bring them and and you've got a you know show them that their values are your values so when you fail to do that yeah you pay a political price for inappropriately so representative Tom Cole Republican from Oklahoma thanks so much Tim at mac covers Congress for NPR he's in studio with me Tim what stood out to you from that conversation what the congressman as seem to suggest that Democrats on a routine basis make equally offensive comments as the president did over the weekend I think Democrats would say that that misses the the whole point of what was so uniquely offensive about what the president said Democrats don't typically I I'm I'm not aware of any Democrats having told the president to go back to where he came from and that's because people with the president's racial background don't get told things like that does the very nature of why this the these comments were racist over the weekend and I think that's what Democrats would say our leaders in both parties comfortable with the outcome of last night's vote is going to move anywhere yeah Republican leaders in the house were were very quick to say that they did not think that the president was racist or that his comments were racist and they were as you could tell by the results of the vote yesterday unified against the democratic resolution in Paris to mac covers Capitol Hill Tim thanks so much thanks a lot some other news now president trump's new rules on asylum are causing anxiety and confusion among the people affected this new role went into effect on Tuesday it means that most migrants cannot seek asylum at the US border unless they have already asked for asylum in one of the countries that they crossed on their way to the United States that means that many people fleeing Central America might end up having to ask for asylum in say Guatemala which has to prepare to deal with tens of thousands of asylum seekers your centers carry cot Jose Jonathan Escobar is one of the four hundred refugees now working their way through Guatemala's.

"Or like shitting on somebody's opinion. Because of the level of hypocrisy in, it is completely gone like there's no such thing as. As like you. Getting you're getting like there's no such thing as you having your opinion discounted, because of apocryphal like I wanted to tell I listed here in our in our show notes. But at the Miami Herald, my former place of employment, they have. Take him out in the last few months. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen as columnist they regular contributor, not like it's more like a regular contributor as opposed to, you know, it's not a staff columnist or or anything like that. But she's the former Ileana Ros-Lehtinen if you're down here, you know, or if you follow politics, you know, she's a former congress person who retired chose to retire last year her seat. Now is my is my see my congressperson for a long time. Absolute dog shit congressperson Republican with the call. The one trick pony, which is like a Cuban whose only issue is getting elected Miami over and over, because she's Cuban and because she swears, like year after year that they're gonna finally do something about Castro, and that was like, that's the only way that they get elected that's such a non issue. So, yeah. Anyway, now these days, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen has joined aching Gump, which is an enormous lobbying firm, based in, in DC. And she's putting her considerable influence to work there and probably getting paid really fucking. Well for doing it. Along with that. She's given these the entire columns. In the Miami Herald now where she gets just kind of put out her own sort of centrist, quote, unquote, centrist brand of conservatism, and where she basically, she's only done two of these, but I really wanted to talk about it. I feel like nobody has criticized the held fort and the held op-ed pages really do. Warrant do deserve some criticism for for hosting this column because they're giving her an uncritical space to just push these opinions out there that on the surface level, seem very acceptable. And the kind that are designed to make like moderate Democrats, and moderate Republicans nod, their head in agreement be like, oh, yeah. Yeah. Okay. That's, that's a very metered position. I appreciate that. There's still some good Republicans out there. She's absolutely fucking not. And so this, this article is her second one. I've problems with her first one that came out last month. Looks like she's doing like a monthly byline. This one is. Again, this is happening during a pride month. Right. Judas pride month, which comes with its own host of, like super cynical shitty brands pretending that they care about LGBTQ pride, which is Naasi aiding enough, but I love the Chippewa one. What did you polity on even know it's just like pepper, and, you know, rainbow awesome great everything. Thanks for leaving on this conversation. So this is Iliana sleekness column. That was just put out yesterday as a founder of conservatives against discrimination. Protect protecting LGBTQ rights is high on our list as a proud conservative standing up against discrimination is only natural. Wow. That's that's that's coming out hot as a conservative standing up against discrimination is only natural. I feel like that's kind of the most unnatural thing that there is for -servative to do. It's almost a hard sentence to read. It's like you kinda trip your tone trying to your brain. Rejects it, like looking at like somebody invented a new color, and you're, you bring can't process, it on the spectrum of perc- perception. So surprised conservative standing up against discrimination is only natural because conservatives, we value individual liberty hard work and freedom for all. I I go through each one of those, we could itemize and go through each one of those statements, each one of those clauses or bullshit. But anyway, I'm a strong defender, again, this is her writing Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a strong defender of our, basic rights and freedoms adamant that these rights and freedoms should be applied equally to all Americans, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identification. That's why doing pride month. It's so disheartening that LGBTQ Americans are still vulnerable to discrimination in thirty states including here in my state. My home state of Florida. No. What you live in fear of facing discrimination, simply because of who they are what they believe or who they love. Protecting LGBTQ people from discrimination is about safeguarding freedom for all Americans. Here's the thing that I wanna bring up in these opening three paragraphs number one. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen didn't magically come to the defense of LGBTQ people. Okay. She took the same bus to get there that every Republican who arrives at that place, takes, and it is the one of my kids is LGBTQ. In this case, her son, Rodrigo, hang lenton, who is who's trans who I think, came out, something like ten years ago and magically, somebody who supported legislation and party platforms for decades. This is not a young woman. We're talking about for decades. That was that every platform after platform policy after policy, just just ravenously homophobic. Somehow arrived at this place of tolerance and it only took one of the people that she loves most in the world. To come out as a member of the community for her to actually. So I guess my point is I know it's hard. I don't wanna like I don't wanna shit on people when they changed their opinions for the better, but you'd also don't get to get on the op-ed pages of the Miami Herald in crow about it. That's bullshit to me. I feel like that's bullshit. That's number one. Number two, even sense Rodrigo, her son, who, who I again, I think, came out about ten years ago, even censored, Rigo has been publicly you know, has publicly embraces density. She still has has continued to be a Republican and for me. That's a tough. That's a tough thing to reconcile, right? Like, what I was talking about before, where it's this thing we don't call people out beyond just as real superficial manner for being for their beliefs or their actions being direct contradiction anymore. We don't call out anymore. I guess we call it out still like 'cause Twitter's around, and, you know, the Donald Trump presidency is just basically been three years if you count the candidacy to four years of snarky, call outs of Trump and literally every single thing. I mean there's the entire there's a tweet for that thing. You know where it's like, oh, no matter what Trump says, there's an old tweet from, like two thousand ten where he said the exact opposite thing you know, like it's. Small, it's turned into an industry of that. And it's so much of it that it doesn't mean anything anymore, and that we've become so cynical. We've become so permissive and it's like perfunctory the way that we call outs, like, I'll tweet this article out and have a comment about how hypocritical it is for her to write this article. And, and it's like I checked off something to do. And that's it right. Nothing actually happens with it doesn't it's entertainment. Yeah. It's it by by being entertainment. It's boiled down to it's. It's reduced to something meaningless, harmless the criticism. Nobody's going to she's given. I mean, I'm looking this is like a I don't know, seven or eight hundred words. So that's like, I don't know eighteen column inches in the paper, that people actually still fucking read. She's given eighteen inches of column. Spaced uncritically and without a challenge talk about how grateful she is for the opportunities that this country gave to her. She's always view the United States as a symbol of freedom quality and opportunity, fundamental values should be the same for everyone discrimination of any kind runs counter to those values like not a single word about the just. Relentless effort from her party, and the people that in the body of this article that she could tin us to pledge allegiance to the conservative movement. And the fact that the conservative movement conservatives have been the leading force against any kind of tolerance, not just LGBTQ, but racial tolerance tolerance of, of women's liberation tolerance of fucking women, being allowed outside of the house like that kinda shit has been. Yeah. The party switch Democrats and are kind of the polarity. Switched obviously with you know, in, in the air of Lyndon Johnson, but. Conservatives have always whether they call themselves. Democrats in the eighteen sixties that call themselves. Republicans today conservatives have always been on the wrong side of everyone of these issues and it's fucking disgusting. It makes me taste vomit in my mouth to read, somebody like this, a leader in the in the realm of conservatism. Somebody who's like one of the most influential conservatives in the country whose repealing down solid seven figures, if not more at a lobbying firm after a twenty year, congressional career try to rainbow wash this shit and say, like conservatives are woke, and cool to, you know, we're, we're all about acceptance and tolerance. And we're discrimination. I don't know man, pretty much every single thing that conservatives actually do from like running up into schools and churches to proposing fucking horrible. Trick oneal legislation says the opposite says that they're not above that shit. So I don't know. That's why I wanted to bring this up. I don't know how they let this woman have a fucking byline at the herald bandit, really makes me. Makes my skin crawl sound really pissed. It's annoying. It's annoying. This, this person, you gotta understand it like. I mean I could keep reading more this article but I really don't want to subject, our listeners to that shit every single word of this is just dripping with Apocrypha to a point where you can't even look at it through our comfortable lens of irony and laugh at it and make fun of it like we can with. Almost anything that Donald Trump personally, does or anything that, you know, shitty conservative pundits, do, like anything that Sean Hannity does or anything like that Tucker Carlson. This is a different level of just cynical bullshit. I mean give Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity credit. They don't come out and, and try to pretend that they're on the side of the LGBTQ community, they don't. And you know what their actions other actions, it goes back to the shit. I said about the, the red meat Trump people, right? At least at least they fly their flag. And, you know, who they are, if Liana receipt, and it was back in congress tomorrow, and a what would likely be very partisan Bill that. Legislation isn't exactly worded this way. But if it was like. Ending the fear of discrimination for the LGBTQ community, a Bill. Right. She would absolutely not fall on the side of it. She would find some procedural it in public. At least you'd find some procedural or technical reason to say this is going to raise taxes and hurt small business owners or some bullshit. But guess what? At the end of the day, she still wouldn't do the actual thing. Of helping to end the fear of discrimination, that those people face that people in these communities face and to their credit again, Donald Trump, maybe not him because he's also done some of that bullshit, where he pretended to be he, he tree pretended to be an ally of, of LGBTQ communities, and has been probably one of their worst like they had a store the other day where I don't know if you heard about this shit, stop me if you did. But so if you move to this country and you become nationalized, and you go through the whole process, not just get a green card, but literally become a naturalized citizen. You be honest, citizen of this country and upon becoming a citizen of this country. You meet somebody of the same sex live in a state, where your marriage is recognized. If the two of you have a child in any which way that's possible for that for you to do that. Whether it's reduction in seven nation, you know, in vitro, whatever if the two of you have a child, the Trump administration has changed a federal rule and right now and I don't imagine that this is a whole lot of people. I mean, if you just do the number, it's probably like ten thousand twenty thirty thousand people still. It's a number of people right now because of the change that, that the Trump administration has made to specific rule that child of yours is not American. It's not a beautiful citizenship. He or she is not a beautiful ship. That's ridiculous. I mean, and that's one that barely even made a fucking mention like that didn't even I don't even think that, that was trending at any point, that was never even anything anybody was certainly I haven't heard anything about it. I don't understand how they can word it in any kind of way that makes it seem even remotely acceptable. I'm not gonna let go Google for it or anything, I guess, broadly what I will say.

"Up taken down a lot of the artificial competitive barriers that has against the fossil fuel industry. Then, like, yeah. Okay. Then we'll get into this Pacific of the policy. But the green deal is a slate of a lot of different things and to his credit, Jay Inslee has demonstrated that kind of thinking. So I mean yeah, he's not going to be the president or anything like that. But he definitely his mind is in the right place. The reason I bring up this article is let me read a little bit from it in a future, where storms are more powerful and entire this is from earth, err on Gizmodo, which is there, you know, climate and environmental vertical on Gizmodo dot com in a future, where storms are more powerful and entire communities are destroyed people are going to need to somewhere to go. They're going to need new homes and a leader willing to let them in Washington state governor and White House hopeful Jay Inslee might be that leader this, weekend's and became the first presidential candidate to include immigration policy in a former climate plan released. Wednesday. The global climate mobilization plan details, his international policy approach his international policy approach to climate, including how climate change is exacerbating the world's refugee crisis, and we will continue to do so and yeah, they're right. Because like. I think about nine years ago this started in places like venue to, like, little islands that are very low lying. It's gonna starting coaching on places that are. That are enormous population centers in Thailand, Indonesia, where tens of their cities, these mega Asian cities, which we in the west tend not to even think about, not just in the context of climate change. But at all, like, we don't even think about those cities. There are cities in this world that are like, two, three four times the size of New York in terms of population bigger than LA, bigger than Mexico City. I mean, there are there are cities in Indonesia, that have thirty forty fifty million people, which is crazy. That's a bigger than our largest state, you know, and lots of humanity packed into very low lying areas, and frankly, it's in parts of the world where where human life is considered to be cheap. And this is gonna be when we talk we've talked before in the past about how there's a sort of like coming reckoning, not this apocalyptic thing, but more like a. Cost benefit thing, where I've made the case that the first real climate legislation was Trump's tax Bill, because it was a direct upward funnel. Not of two point one trillion dollars from the middle and lower classes, up to the very wealthy, and that's not by accident. This is like that last grab that you do to get ready for the, the coming, onslaught of climate catastrophe. This is the last the last effort the last week, the vats the money that is going to be feeding, this burgeoning industry of. There's no other way to say it. But like doomsday prepping for the for the for the ultra rich like the mister burns release the hounds and the and the bees, and the hounds shoot bees out of their mouth when they bark, you know, like that shit surrounding your estate in a moat with allocators like that kind of stuff underground bunkers shit, like that is the purpose of that huge I mean, not going to say the only purpose because money is just, like I don't remember who said about money is a motive with a universal adapter, but it happens to be happening. Now, these people who tend to be the more. Frothing. I think and Trump supporters not the ones who are trying to make like an economic case or trying to say that he she's better than you know, that Hillary Clinton band, or, or like, you know, not people who are making the same rational case. I'm talking about like the register red meat there. They, I gotta give them credit for his horrible reprehensible human beings, as they are, they're the ones that understand and are making the choice that they're looking at the situation and they're probably not smart enough to assess it this way. But there's something innate within their ignorance and they're fearful, rat hind brains that understand that the way that they're living in a global context, isn't sustainable, unless they step on the throat of billions of other people, and we happen to be as a country in an advantageous position to do that because we are. Are the most powerful empire on the planet, and we do have our roots in every corner of the globe. And we decide to fuck with your supply chain, we decide to fuck with your with embargoes on you or tariffs or sanctions, and your country dies, like that's the way that, that works. So. Those people, those aforementioned, red meat, Trump supporters, who are the most among the most of the NFO, bec- among the most. Ignorant among the most generally islamophobic, or, or hate hateful of Brown people or. Dubious of the global south like those people to there. And I put this scare quotes to their credit, they are being honest about what they what they wanna do. They see that there is a very, there's two different ways that this is going to go. There's a very difficult road that involves the United States taking taking culpability and taking the lead in the entire climate change process and what's going to happen. Need to happen? Having difficult being the leader in difficult conversations about, you know, talking to countries like, Indonesia, and India, and Nigeria where they're just starting to have this, like, industrialized economy, and we're going to come to them, try to say, like, oh, we know that we got one hundred fifty years of this of this lucrative post industrial age, but you guys aren't going to be able to do that. We're really sorry. I know that we benefited, but and it's not fair. But unfortunately you're not going to be able to do that. And here's the reason why we. Need to set these emission targets. We need to limit our use a fossil fuels. Those are going to be really difficult conversations to have, but it's possible. I mean, China's making a little bit of progress, and they were the ones that were initially thought to be. They were anticipated to be the worst offenders, and they are horrible. They're huge polluters. But they are moving forward somewhat in, in some good faith. Unlike us, right? So that's number one option. Number two, which is the one that these people want is to start saying, the quiet part out loud, which is like fuck the rest of the world, we're America, and we're going to take and take and consume, and we're not going to change our habits. Matter of fact, we're going to continue moving towards greater consumption. We're gonna continue using even more outside portion of the world's energy and resources and the way that we're going to do that is, again, by putting our fucking boots on the throat of the rest of the planet, and we can do that, because by by dint of our military power and our current global position. Right. That's the route and. To their credit again credit in scare quotes. These people are at least finally, these Trump supporters these people, I don't wanna just to find them by that. But they're just sort of seen a phobic. And. Profoundly evil people? They like fifty percent of the country if not more they are fine with that. They will watch on CNN the bodies of half a million Indonesian people. Bobbing in. In the floodwaters of typhoon before they will use a paper straw You like. don't like. It's that simple. And. I mean I like to think we're not like that, right? No, I, I actually prefer that little sippy lead that they have at Starbucks. Now I think it's nice. So Jane's lose plan is the reason I bring all that up is because Jay Inslee plan is one that sort of. Steps out into the front. It's just like the beginning of those, like, when you want to try to convince somebody of something, but you sort of start dropping little, hints and conversation here, and they're like do to do it. That's like what this is this is like. The conversation that we need to have eventually is like we need to take a whole lot larger role and responsibility for the mess that, that the world is in and like. There's a reason people wash up on our shores every day wash up and like, and walk across our borders. Every day is because we're fucking up the place where they come from we maybe not directly, but ultimately, it's us fucking up the place where they live and they're coming here. That's the whole come up with, like a good. You know metaphor about chickens and coming home. I just can't think of it right now. But, like, that's what that is right. I mean, that's what that's what happens when fifty thousand Nicaraguan kids show up at our borders. It isn't just by accident. It's because we created a situation where they had to. It's not win win. When, when Yemeni people or Syrian people try to get into. Into our country as refugees, and increasingly they're not able to do it in on to this administration. Like they're not just doing it in vacuum in through global positioning. We've done a lot of the batch it that has led to the back. Bad circumstances in their country. You're so I just wanted to bring that up bring up this article because I think it's kind of a good thing. Yeah. Jay Inslee just like this isn't going to be a year for generic white guy. This is your next year. I should say not going to be generic white guy, you have to be crazy over the top white guy. Maybe white guy that everybody already knows, white guy who can, you know, who white guy who has unique policy positions, or came in second place, last time, hopefully, that guy is the one that wins or the guy who was second in charge last time, which is the guy who probably will. Win. So. As I was reading this, I kept thinking about Andrew Yang and universal basic income, it's like that kind of, like, someone who doesn't even have a chance in hell. But at least it's putting like different idea out there that you don't normally hear from anybody else that, that freeze, Overton windows been. So it's been beaten to death since Trump won and. But it's it's this is a time of unique flux. I guess I don't know what the right word would be, but like that window on both sides is getting just jerked open. Both ways like wider and, and taller like it's their conversations that are acceptable on the left that work completely outside of the realm of discourse two years ago and are fucking reprehensible things being said on the right on the furthest edges of the right that are not only not only are acceptable now. But are like getting recognition, the front pages of the New York, the opinion pages of the New York Times, and just horrendous horrendous, and we the, the concept of..

That's the black keys to an order of power so much smaller than the black keys were instead of like, you know, the New York instead of the NBA finals. It's instead of this long. You don't funny is. Eh constantly laugh at the music that marketing people think that should be playing on NBA finals and super bowl's, like the theme music that they pick, there was a period, where felt like four years in a row, they pitched they picked matchbox twenty to be the NBA final song. And so it would be like LeBron James dunking over, you know. Hub brakes. Yeah. Well, this is our heart breaks, what? Yes. So Email us at bird road and all points, west dot net.

Clinton Freeman, and Ryan Darty on the show and Ryan loved it. Chad hated it. And I fall somewhere in the middle. So I think that that's going to make for, you know, pretty fun. Conversation, your knowingly falling in the middle on a lot of these movies lately. It seems like you're just like I like it, it is what it is good for them kind of movie it is, is, like your universal take that you have everything always that way. And it should be stated that I am not always that way. But it has been happening a lot lately. And I think that speaks to the year we've been having, I guess it's just really hasn't been as good of a year as the last couple of years, because last couple years, I've I was going crazy for a lot of movies this year. A little more temperate, I don't know. You see on each they have would you recommend that I watch a star is born is love and seeing it just came out on each last night. Hell, yeah. Okay. The of spiking, eight movie movies that you. Were high on last year. Oh, yes. Really? Good movie. So, yeah, the other thing that we have going on is June nineteenth Wednesday June nineteenth a live show in Miami. Little Havana life house check. Check out the Facebook, the Facebook invite you can see it again, on burrowed, podcast dot com. We have a link to the to the Facebook invite hope to see all their we're gonna have myself not use. Dave instead, it's going to be fortunately, the minute times, Jerry Nellie, it's going to be co hosting with me and talking about how Miami's probably probably going to be done pretty soon. On a global scale. So be there, Dave, what kind of shit do? You wanna talk about today? What is the what is what is going on in the world? I'm about to open up Twitter to try to find some coughing. So talk about well, you know, it is actually e three week this week. So are you going to get the console when it comes out the what somebody just announced the new console which one of Microsoft said, yeah, they haven't actually announced, like, what it did. They just announce all the details of what it's going to be, like, I honestly I it's gonna take a lot for Microsoft to get me excited about a video game system again. I I've gotten pretty hard coord- intendo all the way at this point. I don't play any of my other systems but I will be glued to my phone watching all of the news things that come out of e three because I'm fucking nerd, and I always do every year. But yeah there's a video game related story that we're gonna talk about. About electron electric arts with their popular. Multiplayer wargame battlefield five. They are changing the name of a Nazi in it. Because the, the name belong to a real life resistance fighter, and a real guy like not Antiga into. not like vegan antifa in Portland. You know, standing in front of buses and getting beat up by proud, boys antifa. Yeah. But like a real legit fighter. Yeah. And I love that they're claiming he's just German, not a not, so he's just a very domineering German person dressed exactly like Nazis dressed. Perpetrating mass extinctions. I love that, that this is this is what games are now I was just I mean, this doesn't have to do with battlefield five specifically, but I was just playing mortal Kombat mortal combat eleven which is frigging great and the story mode. And one of the characters says fuck and I'm like why? Characters need this. And now we have like hardcore Nazi real-life Nazis and tell you that they're cool. When occurs isn't curse words is what the fuck man who says that this can say that I feel like Johnny cage, you're close, basically, the same character mortal Mortal Kombat combat. damn what, what a what a cardinal sin. I just made to your people gamers. Yeah. That was ridiculous. Cut that part out. I love I love this name, though will him will him from. Reminds me. Ronca. You be forgiven for Suming that a guy who lived in the thirties in Germany named vill franca was a Nazi, like, do we have time in our days to just sit around googling everything and reading everywhere, competive age? You tell me, I'm going to create a video game character based off of a nineteen thirties person. Don't qualify it at all. Just sit person who lived in Germany, the thirties and forties. Yeah, I'm not going to I'm not going to doubt it when you make him a Nazi like you know what I would love to do is go back in time machine and try to explain Ronca no try to explain to this guy that you can buy his likeness in video game for ten dollars worth of virtual money idea that was a skit that I wanted to do at the top. Really? Yeah. It was gonna be this. I can't believe you said that because I didn't write it down anywhere. And I didn't bother to actually write the skit put the skit that I wanted to do and one day, we will get back to doing skits. I promise, but the skit I wanted to do was, you are the time traveler, I can't believe you just said, that, that's insane your the time, traveller you come back and I'm. Him franck. And you're just like it just goes down a rabbit hole of you trying to explain things to me. And there's just there's no point of reference for somebody from the nineteen thirty grab onto, and I'm just like this. And no video game. It's like you put it on television. And you watch it on television of these television beams. It moving images into your home, and you pay a subscription to a cable company, Vaas's this just keep going. I was having some trouble with the ending, but I was going to be like, basically, I was gonna make it where it's like, you know, you're explaining the concept of, like modern day antifa and proud boys. And you know where we're the, the Neo Nazi movement has turned into the neo-nazi movement in the United States. And he was just going to be like, please just leave me here today. Wants to see this not the this. To. No. I don't think you understand because of the language barrier. I understand. But. Perfectly, please who allowed me that the turned Russian they're through. Do that with my Germans, I make them a little Russian after a little while. But. Yeah, that was the skit guys. So what have been good good? So many jokes that were in my mind that I didn't actually, right? What else is going on? Oh man. What else is going on? Food. There's this one story about a Jay Inslee talk about this. Yeah. Yeah. He is. He's. Residencel hopeful, and but more tenuous a grasp. You have on a story, though. More your voice sounds like it's in a hurricane like it's trying to cut through like you're like a mouse, trying to cut through a tornado strength wind. Jay Inslee is a man. Actually taking refuge now. There's a climate scroll down this article I actually scrolled back up while I was introducing it to make sure still reading the same article so there's. This. Did I think it read reloaded to a different? What do you call that continuous girl where it just goes to the next article like Newsweek, or whatever? Just like the new plan mentions national security. I still talking about this shit the fuck I thought this was about. Refugees or some. So a little bit from the article that we wanted to talk about Inslee, we mentioned this because Jane's, of course, is from Washington state, he's the governor, and one of the, like thirty different guys. Who's thirty different generic white politician guys pulling in between zero and one percent for the white for, for presidential primary. And I mean, I do appreciate a lot of Jane's policies and a lot of the direction that he wants to go in and he takes a big approach like not unlike a lot of the criticism, that people like Bernie AO, get is that the ideas are so big, and they're asking a lot like they're saying they're making, they're making a whole smorgasbord of enormous changes that need to be not just not just done, but, like initially considered which is why they get shit because it's oh well, where's the details. In this policy, the green new deal where it's like, well we're not really very yet. We need to start a green on things first, and then figuring out how will actually attain them and getting things started getting the conversation. Let's all just agree and get on the same page that solar is good. Right. And then when we're all there, and we've set up the circumstances by which solar can. Thrive taking down a lot of the artifice app. Up taken down a lot of the artificial competitive barriers that has against the fossil fuel industry. Then, like, yeah. Okay. Then we'll get into this Pacific of the policy..

Cox media group president, Alex Taylor. You know the story has been about Jamie, but it's not about Jamie's ego. It's not about his something that makes Jamie such a better person than anybody else. It's just about that wonderful spirit of being turning a great journalist into a great a great man. A great character for all of us. He's very inspiring. I am so thrilled that he's working. I mean, never stopped working condos Presley. I mean, most people would have gone out on leave and just or just fallen into deep, depression, or figured out, all my gosh, my life. My career is over. Nineteen eighty eight he must be one of the most against Spiring people I've ever met, and it is the humble honor to be able to call him friend. I think Jamie is just a a standard bearer for all.

"My life so many thoughts, but I can't. The reaction. Is utter. Dejection. In. Gee. Two. Hugh talk, Jamie is married. Welcome to take your daughter and son to work. This is what it looks like stuffed up inside the US capitol building. What do you think with three kids? This is from twenty eleven I don't know how much news get covered today. But that's what looks like today. So hope you had your kids at work as well. Say goodbye. In that office. Jamie has heard thousands of speeches over the last thirty years. However, in spite of the severe health problem, but in two thousand seventeen Jamie has remained active. There was one about him Twitter and his news, blog Mr Speaker, Jamie Dupree is a perfect example of the positive role that devoted and professional journalists play in our free society, and I wish him and his family all the best during this most difficult time. Thank you, Jamie. Got speed retarded Florida congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen that one minute on the house floor, which is what you do in the beginning of the day, you can talk about anything you want for literally, an exactly one minute, and I spoke about Jamie Dupree. I think it was really clear how much Jamie means to Capitol Hill, Washington producer Dory, shaima news that he had lost his voice kind of got out win congresswoman Ileana roughly men went to the house floor and talked about, Jamie. And not sparked a Washington Post piece and politico piece. And it really drew attention to what Jamie was going through that a lot of people even on Capitol Hill who saw him all the time, so day today didn't know that he was dealing with. Meanwhile, Jamie, Cox media group desperately sought a way to get him back on the air. I was thinking about Jamie. This is rob Yaron CMG's vice president of content strategy, and research, and I was thinking about how there must be a way to create a customized voice. And that was the key. That would take a human's voice into account. Countess Presley's WSB's director of community affairs. We knew with technology and artificial intelligence that there were companies out there that we're working on synthesizing the human voice, so that people who could not speak would get their voices bag. Adobe was working on a program, and we got all the way to this CMO the chief marketing officer at adobe, because we thought an amazing story this would be. For us to tell for adobe to tell about how they were able to help a radio quarter. Reclaim his voice only thing is once we got that point adobe scratched the project because they were concerned that the technology would be used for an toward means. And so we were like, oh, because we thought we had something and then we did. So then Marian Pittman who's on our executive leadership team. Pete's freaks program director and always has been a crate, fan and supporter of Jamie's work because she understands and appreciates. Great journalism Marian got her staff rolling on deepening, the search and being able to do it fulltime and, and be able to find someone who might be able to do this. And then might Lupo from Marion staff found Sarah proc in Scotland doing some online searching I ran. I discovered the video of the film critic Roger Ebert, who lost his voice to throat cancer, Sarah. Pock reassembled his. Voice reassembled as why some old tapes, and basically, gave him away, after many years. And I've emailed them and said, hey, let's talk about whether or not, you can do this for Jamie thirty year veteran with a great track record is journalist, and they were thrilled to do it. So we started meeting with Sarah Rockin. They what they do is they take samples of someone's voice, they kind of put it into the talk like a layman they put it into a big pot. They mix it all up and the consonants and syllables and the inflection all gets mixed up. And then when they when you type it in it seeks out the best example of that of putting words together, sometimes it's the entire word it may be that they have to connect different syllables to form words, the more content that you have that you can put into this, that it can pull from the better. I'm a woman of deepen abiding faith, so I'm just going to say right off the top that the syrup rock solution. In my view is a total. God thing they were very interested in working with Jamie and my goodness. We were thrilled have the opportunity to work with them said there was a problem. Normally we would record speaker. Maybe for thirty years in the studio Graham Leary, professional services with Sarah, but we didn't have the possibility James, James case q to Jamie's condition Abel's coming under court phonetically balanced grits. So what are we gonna do? We're thinking, God, this isn't gonna work that's going to work. Why because Jamie is the most thorough and organized. I may call them at audio order, but he has audio archives of his own reporting going back for decades, and we set Sarah rock two hundred and fifty three hundred samples of what Jamie sounded like when he was creating a report and from that they were able to recreate his voice April. V twenty first before we get to the agenda, the first planning call with syrup rock. Is there anything Jamie wants to say? Graham. You for your help. I look to. What is even more awesome than the fact that syrup rock? A wanted to work with us be was able to work with Jamie's archived audio files, and then see created his voice is that Cox was willing to pay for it. It was not it was not a project. Alex Taylor, Jamie was always a great reporter company president and CEO. They always has been he's always been a big hit on our radio stations. But he is more than just to reporters, a great teammate. He's a great collaborator. And so for us helping Jamie was never really a question. It's not like we evaluated the cost and decided. Yes or. No. I mean, there was never any question as to whether or not we were going to help them. He's part of the family. So in total. Two, maybe three months voice, because once have the transcriptions recordings of actually building the voices, Israel, typically. It's relatively quick, obviously at first, some phrases sounded better than others. But we felt strongly enough about it that we, we sort of committed even with version one that way, we would come up with a plan to debut it on all of our radio stations. Probably about three weeks. After that, June eighteenth. Free to Jamie.

"Can be unbiased somebody who you trust to give you straight backs. He need his voice, so much in his voice wasn't there. It really has over time has been a tragic event to the extent that there's any walk in this at all. It's that the social media the digital age. So he was able to keep going through his blogs, and through his social media. So we always had his presence again, WSB's, Chris Chandler, I would read text messages or instant messages from him on the air, so that the listeners would know that he was still with us. Scott sling host of Atlanta's morning news. It was still go down to Capitol Hill. He would bring someone with him. He could write up questions the person with him could post questions and because he's so highly respected by both the backbenchers and the leadership congress, they would take time for him. He has a little white board. Retired congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen from Florida and he has those race. Symbol pens. And he will write out, you know, like budget deal. Yes. No. So you know what the question is? And there's no pity. Nobody's giving him an interview because they feel sorry for him. They just they're, they're going to be treated. Well, the great thing about Jamie Dupree is his passion for his work, so yeah, he lost his voice.

"To work it out. Take them meds. I love this guy, the Senator Kennedy, this is something about me, so folksy down-home and. You know, I played that sound bite from Newt Gingrich talking about how you couldn't have had to people who disagreed, more on policy than speaker, Newt Gingrich, and President Bill Clinton. And let me remind you that they went through an impeachment hearing in the house against Bill Clinton. So for all intents and purposes, what isn't even happening today? Happened then and Bill Clinton was still able to work with, with Newt Gingrich, and for the very reason that the speaker just spoke about. He wanted some accomplishments because he knew that he was guilty of what they were charging him with. He had lied to congress forget about the sex because that's not what this was about. It was about him lying under oath. So he knew that he had done that any thought. Well, I might very well, get impeached, and I need to get some stuff done. Because if I am a successful president, I may still get a second term in spite of the impeachment, and that's exactly what happened. You know, even people like me who had no love for Bill Clinton. Acknowledged the fact that working together with speaker, Gingrich, we had a balanced budget. We had welfare reform, which, by the way was actually written by the late great e clay Shaw, who was a Florida. Congressman boy, I long for the days of congressman like e clay Shaw, they were statesman. They really were they would decent Goodman. And women, I guess who cared about this country more than they cared about their political parties. And he was a, you know, one of the few Republicans to get elected over and over again. Here in south Florida. Along with a, you know, handful, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the, the as Velarde brothers. You know, there weren't that many in the entire south Florida region. But he was a gentleman and a scholar. And you know, men like that are missed. I you know who you compare them to Adam Schiff. Who you're gonna compare them to even on the Republican side of the aisle? There's just very few, I think maybe Jim Jordan is a standalone guy. I'm not a big fan of Matt gaetz. I see his purpose. But, you know, even run the Santa's was much more of a statesman when he was in the house. What we have now is people who are literally just have descended into areas where no sane people ever should go and the petty bickering and fighting back and forth is just the -fensive to most of us breaking news. The president has approved the deployment of more troops to the Middle East. He's going to be sending patriot missiles reconnaissance aircraft and necessary forces to the region. Well, that's a, that's a kind of a big moment. And right now, we also British Prime Minister Theresa may has decided to step down after she was unable to secure the Brexit deal. And they don't know who's going to replace her, but it's going to be a very interesting time. She will stay in office, apparently until the president's trip to Great Britain, and we'll see. We'll see how that works out. It was very sad. I saw the the speech that she gave an. And you know, she she, she knows she has to go, she's, she's been defeated. There's no question about it. But she she was weeping. You know, she became the prime minister back in June of twenty sixteen to leave a right of I guess it was what a week after the maybe a month after the European Union, leaving the European Union was decided and it's been nothing but that ever since she is a conservative. She spent more than a year and a half, negotiating this exit agreement with the EU and just can't get it done. She's been battling to United just her own party. Her f-, totally fractious party since she got there, three years ago, I have done my best, but she conceded that had not been enough for voice breaking may said in a televised statement outside, then Downing Street that she would soon be leaving a job. Job that it has been the honor of my life to hold you know, I'm not a big fan of Theresa May, and I'll tell you why when she was in, in our previous Genesis, as I don't even know what the official title is that she held, but she was the person who decided that, for instance, Michael Savage could not go to England. She was the one who decided that my friend, Pam Geller, and Robert Spencer, could not go to England and I was ready, not a fan of hers when she was elected. It'd be very interesting. A lot of the contenders for the spell. Whatever it's called the, the prime ministership that what you call it tough ones. He got a Boris Johnson. I guess is, is one he got Adra leads them, although I don't think that she has a chance. I guess, Boris Johnson is the early front runner, so long as it's not that anti-semites that hangs out with a OC. I'll be obvious satisfied, whose name shall never be said on this program. So we'll say parliament is divided over still of whether even exit the European Union. But that's what the people voted for love the way government decides that whatever the people want particularly in these republics are democracies or parliamentary democracies. Yeah, there's a general election. The people make a decision and then the governing body we're not going to do that. We're going gonna make it really hard to do that. Well, say the new conservative leader will become prime minister without the need for general election. That's a process that will take place and should be completed by late July from what I understand we shall say. Anyway, they the other big news story, of course, which I still can't get much information on them sitting here. I saw the headline and that's where it ended is that apparently, we are going to be sending more troops in to the Middle East, which is not surprising because Iran keeps rattling source stages. The other thing I wanna talk about when we come back is this, this insane. And, and I really can't think of anything more insane than the espionage charges against Julian Assange, now, I'm not a defender of Julian Assange, and WikiLeaks by any stretch of the of the imagination. But this is really going to test the limits of the. I amendment, you know, according to the charges he could get a death sentence. Mean that is the that is the penalty for treason at for espionage, and for a number of very sacred kind of crimes, and meanwhile, John Walker Lindh walks out of the Tara facility yesterday, even though he did commit treason, treason. He went and fought with our enemy. He was with Osama bin Laden and he gets to go home. And now Julian Assange for publishing information that, you know. Many of us are glad he published. He may get the death penalty. It's, it's an upside down world. Jamie Markley.
