The U.S. added 517,000 jobs in January, much better than 187,000 expected
"A stunning jobs report for January. Economists were expecting some 175,000 jobs added, so sunlight bank rate dot com's Mark hammer grew pretty surprised. The economy added 517,000 jobs last month on top of that, 71,000 additional jobs with the upward revisions in the previous two months. So the job market in January, even with all the job cut announcements, remarkably strong. So what is the fed to make of all this? I think the fed can actually look at this picture and gain some additional confidence with the hope that
WHO Claims the Covid Emergency Is Not Over
"Play a piece of tape here and get your reaction. This is the WHO has decided that the COVID pandemic is not over, play cut too. The committee has advised me that, in its view, COVID-19 remains a global health emergency. And I agree. They need an emergency to stay in power, but also is that a way for them to continue to cover up what they have done. These last couple of years, if the crisis never over, how could you investigate the crisis? That's a good point. And notice how he's using the classic ploy of hiding behind a committee. Yes, that's exactly right. So that's the usual kind of bureaucrats. Shell game. Bobby Kennedy, you may recall on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, almost exactly a year ago, predicted exactly this. And was hammered by MSNBC for doing it and called a crazy, but he said outright if we don't force them to relinquish this power, they will carry it for as long as they possibly can. And he was dead on. And they're going to continue in this state of perpetual and ongoing emergency until we either force our hand and that kind of goes this idea of justice and the next kind of chess move.
Who Failed Paul Pelosi
"I want to talk about the Pelosi body camera that was just released when I say Pelosi power Pelosi's incident where there was a nut job that broke in his house and ended up bashing him in the head with a hammer, almost killing the man. So let me tell you my takeaways. All of the stuff that was online without having the body worn camera footage alluded to the fact that Pelosi could have been involved with this guy as a lover and that, you know, this guy in Pelosi stage the break in and the police showed up and called Pelosi and the guy in their underwear and it was all the strange situation and have opened the door and was just standing there and nothing happened before he was just randomly struck in the head. All of those things were out there in about and some people were speaking about it. However, when I saw the body worn camera footage, it really cleared up a lot of stuff for me and I want to set the record straight. It appears to me based on a body on camera footage that power Pelosi was a victim, I don't care what you think about Nancy Pelosi and all these other knuckleheads. Power Pelosi was a victim. And if you're calling in, let me break. If you call in and you disagree with me, just hold on, I'm gonna get to you in a second. Power Pelosi was a victim. This guy took several minutes to break into the house. And being when the police came to the door and I just, I'm confused. Because they deemed the dispatcher heroic because she was able to interpret what Paul Pelosi was saying because the guy was breaking in his house and he was trying to speak in code and say, hey, what are you doing in my house? You don't live here. In a dispatcher, I guess put the cookies down and was like, wait a minute, this on sound right. And ended up ordering police officers to go out there in an emergency situation. I'm assuming that's what that was, that's what had happened. Because if it wasn't what happened, then the dispatcher didn't do a good job and probably should be suspended. Because if you can not interpret the fact that Nancy Pelosi's husband is at home alone, and he's saying you don't belong in my house, you don't live here, you need to leave. That you don't interpret it. It's probably a person breaking. And then you got a person between a rock and a hard place. However, let's just say And let's just say the police officer showed up with that expectation. Based on my observation of the video, they failed. They failed. They knock on the door and one officer was on his phone for whatever reason. I don't know what he was doing. He got his head down. On his phone, the other officer knocked on the door, you could see his body wearing camera, he turned his back to the door at some point.
Paul Pelosi Attack Footage Released by Police
"We saw acts of violence that were both near fatal and fatal. Of course, the video was released due to a court order of Paul Pelosi being attacked by this lunatic with a hammer in Pelosi's home, the home of he and his wife, Nancy, the Speaker of the House, the then Speaker of the House, this guy is hopefully going to be behind bars for a long time, if not in a mental institution, and I hope that people will knock off the conspiracy theories. Man, oh man, we are enamored with conspiracy theories as a country, aren't we? As a people, who opened the door, how did the door get open? What was the guy doing there? Why was Pelosi's underwear? I mean, knock it off. Here's an 82 year old man who's lucky to be alive. As the surveillance video showed this. Bizarre person breaking into the Pelosi home and then hitting them over the head with a hammer, cracking open his skull, the 82 year old guy is never going to be the same. No person should experience that in their home. And the fact that, you know, Nancy Pelosi may have a political ideology that we strongly disagree with shouldn't excuse or lead it to any path of looking the other way or not condemning this act of awful violence,
Sebastian Reviews the Bodycam Video of the Paul Pelosi Attack
"Show you it has been released not only the 9 11 call from Paul Pelosi to the dispatcher in San Francisco on that October night. We now have the body cam footage of what happened when the police came to his home. Really weird because he stood there with his quote unquote assailant and didn't try to leave the building. Here's the footage play cut. Hi guys, how you doing? How are you? What's going on, man? Hi. Drop the hammer. Nope. Hey. What is going on? So for those who are only listening to this show, it's unusual, the door is opened. Poor Pelosi standing there in his underwear in his left hand, he's holding some kind of drink some big like a Monster Energy drink can or can a beer or what have you. And then his quote unquote is sailing, this illegal immigrant from Canada is holding a hammer which Pelosi is also holding, there doesn't seem to be a lot of fear on Pelosi's face. Until what happens, the police officer says, to the illegal immigrant, drop the hammer at which point he refuses and raises the hammer and goes after Pelosi, what was happening in the intervening period, what was he doing there standing with a drink in hand and in his underwear, it's all very, very strange.
Video shows struggle for hammer during Pelosi attack
"Police in San Francisco released body camera video from last year's attack that seriously injured the husband of former House speaker Nancy Pelosi in their home. David dupe and 82 year old Paul Pelosi are seen by the front door of the home. How you doing? How are you? What's going on, man? The two are seen struggling to gain control of a hammer. Drop the hammer. What is going on? The paint can be seen lunging at Pelosi with the hammer over his head. The actual attack is out of the view of officers. Pelosi apparently unconscious is seen lying down on the floor in his pajama top and underwear. Nancy Pelosi was in Washington at the time. To pay has pleaded not guilty. He is being held without bail. He told police, this was a suicide mission, and there was evil in Washington. I'm Ed Donahue
Video of Paul Pelosi Hammer Attack Released
"So the surveillance video from the Paul Pelosi attack has been released I just saw it Jim is processing it It's going to take a little bit There's a lot of curse words in there Before I get to my other story the surveillance video is also been released too It looks like this guy was outside the house Then you see watching this now it looks like some kind of breaking and entering here through the back but the video of the police body cam is very strange They knock on the door it doesn't sound like it's an emergency I don't know I was a police officer and there's typically a different tone of voice It sounds like they're responding to some kind of suspicious call which they do multiple times a night When they knock on the door immediately upon opening the door you see Paul Pelosi and if you're standing at a doorway Paul Pelosi staring at the doorways to the right and the subject is to the left holding Paul Pelosi's right arm by the wrist He's holding his arm by the wrist but it's weird that this I mean as this guy suffering from some psychopathology some apparently had some issues Why he would let him answer the door I don't know So he's holding him by the wrist He's got a hammer in his hand So immediately the police officers upon open the door open in the door you'll hear it's going to take a minute to cut this So we'll get up to it Say drop the hammer as they say drop the hammer He says no and then just swings and hits the sky I mean hard You can tell this was not this was not a tap I mean he and Paul Pelosi hits the floor I'm actually stunned the survived this I'm serious You get hit with a hammer like that in the head It's obviously designed to transmit force over a limited area to drive a nail Well it does the same thing to a skull He had some hard and Paul Pelosi hits the floor in space down on the floor at clearly
Rep. Lauren Boebert: The Double Standards on Biden's Documents Scandal
"Last question for you I always appreciate your time These documents Tom cotton was on I saw him on Fox this morning senator from Arkansas On our side of the aisle And what I believe to be a really solid move on his part He's threatening to basically uphold the confirmation process if we don't get a look at what is in the classified documents that were held By both allegedly Donald Trump because he's the spirit in the classification of course but that's another story And Joe Biden who no one's disputing the classification Now I find it off the odd congresswoman that they don't want you to see what's in these documents Now my next segment when you're gone I'm going to play a cut here for Miranda divine Would it be awfully interesting if some of the information in those classified documents that they won't let the Senate look at Was in fact in some emails Hunter Biden was exchanging with foreign countries Now we don't know that but there's an easy way to clear it up right To get a look at the documents Your thoughts on that Absolutely Well first of all go senator cotton We deserve to have answers on this And I'm really proud of him for taking the lead in this And making sure that we know exactly what's there But with these classified documents the real concern to me is the double standard Democrats are searched in Republicans are rated The White House is dodging questions on this They really seem to be hiding something One question I want to answer is why did the DoJ wait until after the midterms to bring this forward Why do all of these people who don't have the authority to have classified documents in their possession have them and could we have stopped this if we would have actually prosecuted Hillary Clinton whenever she was found with classified documents and deleted 33,000 emails and probably the biggest regret that any Democrat has right now is Joe Biden himself in the fact that he didn't use bleach bit or a hammer
Mike Pompeo: Adam Schiff Previously Leaked Classified Info
"A former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo with us mister secretary it's a pleasure Let me ask you something First of all he's written a fantastic book never give an inch fighting for the America I love I recommend it very very strongly It is a very impactful book It's a very intriguing book It's easy to read It's entertaining And you live through this America but there's a lot of things that took place behind the scenes And I'm not talking about gossipy stuff And settling scores in that kind of thing But really fascinating when it comes to diplomacy and decisions made by allies and enemies alike Mike Pompeo you had mentioned on outnumbered on Fox I think it was that Adam Schiff leaked classified information Is that correct Yes Mark Thanks for having me on I struggled with this a ton during the time of the Russia hoax the committee that House intelligence committee led by chairman Adam Schiff would ask for all these documents and president Trump frankly wanted us to provide them I write about this and never give an inch but get them something There's nothing to see here Don't hold on to this And it would end up in the press And there was the damage thing whether it's hammer his staff for both of them really really bad stuff This was classified information And somehow when it went to that committee it ended up in The Washington Post to The New York Times or someplace else And yet when speaker McCarthy puts his foot down with him and swalwell the press is like well why are you doing this And you can't do this and there's something after Pelosi did what she did What do you make of that Isn't that ridiculous It's ridiculous The press is always going to take entirely hypocritical positions They are partisan there not looking at this objectively
President Trump's Popularity on the Rise Across Polls
"Trump's lead over Biden over desantis over everybody widens, you know why? Because people are like, well, they were going after him again for the wrong reasons. Everybody's got classified documents. Biden, you know. Trump Pence is Obama going to be next. What about Hillary? What kind of classified documents does Hillary Clinton have? Well, we know what she does with stuff that she shouldn't have. She gets out the hammers and the bleach bit and she knows how to destroy it. I guess Mike Pence wasn't really good at bleach bit. Even Trump said, Pence hasn't done anything wrong in his life. Leave the guy alone. This weekend, president Trump is going to be in South Carolina right him off at your own peril. Because guess what? Guess what? He's coming back. There's just no way. Have you seen these polls? Emerson and Harvard and USA Today, he beats everybody. Now, in the middle of where we are with Trump supposedly in the wilderness, he shouldn't be beating the county commissioner in picking South Carolina. He should be just underwater. Why do you suppose Trump wins in all of these polls? The media won't touch this with a ten foot pole. They don't want to go anywhere near Trump's popularity with the American people.
At least 7 dead as severe winds, tornadoes hammer US South
"At least 7 people have been killed in Georgia and Alabama in tornadoes that cut a path through the south, a twister damage buildings and tossed cars in the streets of historic downtown Selma Alabama, mere James Perkins, said late Thursday, the damage is still being assessed. We were blessed. We died some major bullets until they really did. This could have been much worse. There were 6 confirmed deaths in October county, Alabama, 41 miles northeast of Selma, where the county's emergency management director says more than three dozen homes were damaged or destroyed by a tornado that cut a 20 mile path across two communities, one person died in Georgia when a tree fell on a vehicle.

Victor Davis Hanson: 'Put on Your Armor and Face These People'
"Get your reaction to the election of the speaker? I was asked that by Tucker on Fox News and I think day two when I said, I think another four to 8 hours would be helpful, but after that would be counterproductive only because why they were hammering out an agenda and a protocol that was long overdue when it was messy, you looked at the other side and it was almost stalinist. It was 212 on every single bow. There was not one defection for Jeffreys. When they have a defection on Ukraine, they squash it. We're dealing with some of the most disciplined, hardcore cadres on the left. This is not the old messy Democratic Party that was all over the map. These people are hardcore leftists. So when we're trying to deal with them, I like the idea that we're getting these issues out in front of the American people, we're arguing over them, but my only point was after three or four days, I think it's time to put on your arm or face these people
The Final Battle
"I think I know the left really well. But I am now about to speak to someone who knows it at least as well as I do. I don't know anybody else I could say that of other than David Horowitz. Who has been a sort of prophet in our lifetime. I'll never forget that David Horowitz when you said, oh, there must have been in the 90s. That I don't know if you coined the term, but it's from you that I heard it, watermelon. Green on the outside and red on the inside about the environmentalist movement. Did you coin that term? I don't think I called it when I may I may have told you. Yeah. All right, well, anyway, I heard it from you and it turned out to be entirely accurate. David Horowitz's new book is final battle. The next election could be the last. So that's quite a statement. And the picture on the cover shows the stars and stripes without stars, but with a hammer and sickle where the stars should be. So obviously people will say, is David Horowitz overstating the danger. Why don't you respond to that? Look. As a funny thing going on outside the circle of listen to men and others like us. To treat what's happening is normal. It's like, it's just a little more a little more corruption and a little more of this. But first, the first perception you have to have is that the democratic party starting with its leadership, the criminal organization. The worst thing that's been done to America the greatest crime committed against America and its history is the destruction of our borders. And the influx of millions upon millions of people who have no idea who they are,
All-Star Robertson scores two goals, Stars top Panthers 5-1
"Jason Robertson scored twice in the stars avoided a season worst third straight loss by downing the Panthers 5 one. I got a lot of great a looks tonight, so I mean, when you get that many competitors feel good and especially when you get one early and then just start hammering away. Robertson leads Dallas with 28 goals and 57 points and has points in 9 of his last ten games. He provided the first and last goals to back Jake gottinger, who made 27 saves. Carter verige scored and Spencer knight turned back 29 shots for the Panthers who had won two straight to tie a season high. I'm Dave ferry.
McCarthy fails in two votes for House speaker, not conceding
"Kevin McCarthy has lost another vote in his bid to become House speaker as the GOP majority prepares to take house control. McCarthy says he's fighting for all Americans. Not a few individuals that want something for themselves. Hammering a group of GOP conservatives challenging his leadership, including Scott Perry. We surely haven't come here alone. There's one person that could have changed all this. And for the first time in a century, a House speaker nominee failed to win the gavel on the first vote, as the second vote started, the GOP dysfunction continued. I think Kevin McCarthy is the right guy to lead us. Moments after Jim Jordan nominated McCarthy. Maybe Jim Jordan is the right person for Speaker of the House. Matt Gaetz nominated Jordan, who got enough votes to keep McCarthy from winning, as the GOP dug in for a long, messy start to the new Congress, Sagar Meghani, Washington.
The latest in the NFL
"NFL week 17 roundup, I'm Dave fairy. Three teams are now battling for the last NFC wild card birth and one is the packers is Mark Daniels reports. You have enough for debt a month ago, the Green Bay Packers dominated the NFC north champion Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field 41 17 for their fourth in a row. Fell behind three to nothing after a block pond early, but keyshawn Nixon took the next kick-off back a 105 yards for a touchdown packers didn't stop until it was 41 three, midway through the fourth. This one out 12 and four while the 8 and 8 packers need only to beat the Detroit Lions in their finale at home to secure the NFC's final wild card spot. The Lions also enjoyed a blowout win. Denny cap was there. The lion's defense sacks Justin Fields 7 times in a 41 ten route of the bears, Lions rookie James Houston tally three sacks in just a 6 game of the season and now leads all NFL rookies with 8 of them on the year as his team stays in the playoff hunt, improving the 8 and 8. We coming together as a team, everybody is getting better, man. Everybody's doing their job. Everybody's executing when they're supposed to execute. Houston also forced a fumble of fields who completed just 7 of 21 for 75 yards. The Seahawks also have postseason hopes. Jim Bernard has the details. The Seattle Seahawks kept their playoff hopes alive with a 23 6 win over the New York Jets. Gino Smith passed for 183 yards and two touchdowns as the seahawk snapped a three game losing streak. Obviously, we hit a rough patch and it's not what we want, but we still got a shot. And so what we can control is winning next week, another tough opponent. But all we can do is control what we can control and look at the situation at hand. The jets committed three turnovers to drop their fist straight game, which eliminated them from postseason contention. The Giants have extended their season, Mike mancuso reports. The Giants have clinched a playoff spot for the first time since 2016 with a 38 to ten win over Indianapolis. Daniel Jones led the way he threw for a 177 yards and two TDs. He ran for 91 yards with touchdown runs of 18 and ten yards. Just to exciting, I think, like I said, we've been through some been through some tough times and to be on this side of it is a lot of fun. Landon Collins returned the Nick Foles and interception, 52 yards for a touchdown as the Giants built a 24 to three halftime lead. The eagles must have the chance to clinch the top seat in the NFC playoffs. Here's Michael luongo. The states picked up their third straight, where were they 2010 went over the eagles, New Orleans, took the 7th thing, they didn't know one yard run by Taysom Hill. They sealed the victory when Marshawn latimer put another pass by Gardner and menchu and ran it back 11 yards for a score and a Dalton through two to four yards for the saints who improved the 7 and 9 when you look at how you finish the season. There's a lot to say for that and there's a lot that you can carry over and you want to be playing your best football at the end of the year and I feel like we're doing that. Mention had one touchdown pass for the Bridget is still clinched against the eastern Division Championship and the number one overall seed with the win next week. Eric waddell watched the Buccaneers clinch a playoff birth. Tampa Bay out lasted Carolina 30 to 24. The win for the bucks clinched the NFC south title, bucks wide receiver Chris Godwin had a 120 receiving yards and says his team is building for whoever Tampa plays in the playoff. My legacy gets anybody, man. You know, and I feel like we, you know, we still got a ways to go. We still got some things that we got to work on. But, you know, that was a big step for us. The Patriots still have playoff hopes. Gregg cadets, reports. The New England Patriots kept their playoff hopes alive with a 23 21 come from behind victory over the Miami Dolphins. The Patriots took the lead for good in a third quarter interception return for a touchdown by Kyle Duggar. The pick 6 made it four straight weeks at the Patriots defense escort a touchdown. The Steelers stayed alive in the playoffs with a 1613 win versus the ravens that commanders were eliminated with a 24 ten loss to the browns. The chiefs beat the Broncos 27 24. The Jaguars crushed the Texans 31 three. The forty-niners earned their 9th street win by beating the Raiders 37 34 and overtime. The Chargers hammered the rams 31 ten and the falcons earned a 2019 victory over the Cardinals. I'm Dave ferry, AP sports.
Gov. Ron DeSantis Delivered on Issues That Mattered Most to Voters
"Desantis unapologetically focused on what he focused on the issues that mattered most to us Parental rights and education huge parental rights and education individual rights Over government intervention intervention Prioritizing the economy Over things like that Which by the way and I do think this is worth repeating as desantis won the largest victory by a Republican gubernatorial candidate in Florida since 1868 Few more people in the state since then think about how badly no matter where you are USA you heard about this at length think about how badly the parental rights and educational legislation enacted in Florida was slandered as don't say gay Don't say gay I mean you have people that only know it by that Never mind the fact that nowhere in the legislation did it even mention the word gay let alone that it can't be said in the classrooms An absolute farce But he was also reported as being a tyrant for taking on Disney's wokeness and their political activism Another national story he was said to have taken away a woman's right to choose by signing legislation limiting abortions to 15 weeks So I mean that's just some of it but I mean that was all part of the big national stuff that happened this year where he was just hammered on relentlessly But what did he do He stood tall he ignored the noise delivered on the agenda thoughtfully and guess what voters responded

"That's the hub where you <Speech_Male> can find the <SpeakerChange> film. <Speech_Male> Great stuff. <Speech_Male> Kathy Lynn, thank <Speech_Male> you so much for joining me. <Speech_Male> I really <SpeakerChange> appreciate <Speech_Male> it. Thank you, dinesh. <Speech_Music_Female> <Music> <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> I want to talk about <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> a <Speech_Male> recognition <Speech_Male> scene <Speech_Male> in the Odyssey. This <Speech_Male> is in book 19. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And it has <Speech_Male> to do with Odysseus <Speech_Male> trying to <Speech_Male> conceal <Speech_Male> himself but <Speech_Male> nevertheless being <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> recognized. <Speech_Male> Now, <Speech_Male> recognition is an important <Speech_Male> theme in <Speech_Male> all of Greek <Speech_Male> literature. We <Speech_Male> see this not just in <Speech_Male> Homer, but also <Speech_Male> in <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> Greek tragedy. <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> And <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> the recognition <Speech_Male> can be self <Speech_Male> recognition, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> so for example, <Speech_Male> the idea <Silence> <Speech_Male> that <Speech_Male> in Greek tragedy, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> you killed <Speech_Male> your father, you <Speech_Male> married your mother, one <Speech_Male> of the most <Speech_Male> powerful tropes, <Speech_Male> the <Speech_Male> Oedipus <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> tragedy, <Speech_Male> and Oedipus <Speech_Male> comes to a <Speech_Male> sense of <Speech_Male> recognition about <Speech_Male> what he did <Speech_Male> and also <Speech_Male> who he is. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And but <Speech_Male> recognition in <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Greek <Speech_Male> literature is also used <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> in the ordinary <Speech_Male> sense, where you simply <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> have somebody who is <Speech_Male> in camouflage <Speech_Male> and disguise, <Speech_Male> and you <Speech_Male> figure out who they <Speech_Male> are. Now, Odysseus <Speech_Male> here <Speech_Male> is trying <Speech_Male> to conceal <Speech_Male> himself <Speech_Male> from everyone. <Speech_Male> He <Speech_Male> has revealed himself <Speech_Male> to his son telemachus <Speech_Male> because he actually <Speech_Male> needs to partner <Speech_Male> up with telemachus <Speech_Male> to get rid of the suitors, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> but he didn't tell <Speech_Male> the swine herd you <Speech_Male> may as who he is, <Speech_Male> he <Speech_Male> hasn't told <Speech_Male> his <Speech_Male> wife, <Speech_Male> Penelope, <Speech_Male> who he is. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> there's <Speech_Male> also an old <Speech_Male> slave woman <Speech_Male> in the household, <Speech_Male> her name is yura <Speech_Male> clea, <Speech_Male> and he certainly <SpeakerChange> hasn't <Speech_Male> told her who he <Speech_Telephony_Male> is. <Speech_Male> Now, <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> in this scene, <Speech_Male> Odysseus <Speech_Male> has arranged a <Speech_Male> meeting with Penelope. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> it's a very interesting meeting <Speech_Male> because <SpeakerChange> for the <Speech_Male> first of all, <Speech_Male> Odysseus <Speech_Male> is just guys, <Speech_Male> but he is <Speech_Male> her husband. You <Speech_Male> would think that she <Speech_Male> would figure out <Speech_Male> who he is <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> maybe she does. <Speech_Male> But in the scene, she <Speech_Male> doesn't give any <Speech_Male> obvious indication <Speech_Male> of it. She asks, so <Speech_Male> this is, well, who are you? <Speech_Male> What's your <Speech_Male> story? And Odysseus, <Speech_Male> whom Homer <Speech_Male> at this point in the narrative <Speech_Male> called the father <Speech_Male> of lies. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Basically <Speech_Male> spins out <Speech_Male> this big story <Speech_Male> about how he's <Speech_Male> a stranger <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> but in the <Speech_Male> narrative, <Speech_Male> he goes on to say that <Speech_Male> he knew Odysseus <Speech_Male> that he <Speech_Male> was familiar with Odysseus <Speech_Male> and he's able to <Speech_Male> prove it because Penelope <Speech_Male> is like, well, what do you mean <Speech_Male> you knew Odysseus? <Speech_Male> What kind of clothing <Speech_Male> was he wearing <Speech_Male> and what did he <Speech_Male> look like? <Speech_Male> And the <Speech_Male> stranger, of course, is able <Speech_Male> to answer <Speech_Male> those questions effectively <Speech_Male> and say, well, yeah, <Speech_Male> he was dressed like this. <Speech_Male> He looked like that. <Speech_Male> And Penelope <Speech_Male> realizes, <Speech_Male> wow, this guy <Speech_Male> must have really <Speech_Male> known Odysseus <Speech_Male> because he has <Speech_Male> information that <Speech_Male> I know <Speech_Male> about my husband but <Speech_Male> an ordinary person <Speech_Male> who didn't know <Speech_Male> Odysseus would certainly <Speech_Male> not know. <Silence> Now, <Speech_Male> why is Odysseus <Speech_Male> doing this? Is <Speech_Male> it like a pointless <Speech_Male> no, <Speech_Male> Odysseus <Speech_Male> is trying to <Speech_Male> confirm <Speech_Male> for himself <Speech_Male> for sure <Speech_Male> that Penelope <Speech_Male> is <Speech_Male> completely <Speech_Male> loyal to him. <Speech_Male> Remember, he's been away <Speech_Male> for 20 <Speech_Male> years. <Speech_Male> Ten years fighting the <Speech_Male> Trojan war, <Speech_Male> ten years getting <Speech_Male> back home. <Speech_Male> And so, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> and he's heard <Speech_Male> when he was away <Speech_Male> about all kinds of <Speech_Male> other Greeks <Speech_Male> who had major <Speech_Male> problems when they got home <Speech_Male> notably the <Speech_Male> king, agamemnon, <Speech_Male> he got <Speech_Male> home his wife, <Speech_Male> clytemnestra, <Speech_Male> had taken up with another <Speech_Male> man, the two of them <Speech_Male> plotted to kill agamemnon <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> did.

"Supreme Court looked at the constitution, they identified a fundamental right and what you show as, well, that's not really what happened. Well, I'll start by saying that when researching this film, we were told that there was a symposium at Stanford, a law symposium hosted by the federal federalist society, where it was a great upon by this symposium of lawyers on both sides of the argument that roe V wade was one of the worst legal decisions in Supreme Court history, not because they were pro or against abortion, but legally how has decided. Now tying that into what you're asking, you know, Supreme Court Justices are not robots. They are humans. And we are all affected by the media, our families, things that are going on in our own homes. In this specific case, we had Supreme Court Justices with wives and daughters who were volunteering at Planned Parenthood who were influenced by this huge feminist movement that was sweeping the nation in the late 60s and 70s. So it's almost to say, you know, if you're talking about the George Floyd case, for example, against Derek Chauvin. How could you say that the judges in that case wouldn't be influenced by what's going on in the media or what's going on in their own homes. That environment that we all experienced in the summer of 2020 20 movement is very similar to what you could picture the environment that the justices were experiencing back in the 70s when this case was decided. And not only that, on top of the family pressure that they all saw right in their own homes, there was a leak just like there was a leak right before the new roe V wade decision got overturned, there was a leak where one of the justices leaked the internal vote, you know, there's internal votes that happens before the justices decide something. They have this big case coming up. And while they're in their meetings, they're deciding, hey, what are we looking at now? How many are for it? How many are against it? These are confidential internal votes that take place in the Supreme Court. One of the justices was very unhappy that the vote was swaying towards making continuing to make abortion illegal. So he then leaked that internal vote to The Washington Post. And there was a huge story in The Washington Post about how chief justice Warren Berger, who in our film was played by John Voight, was leaning towards keeping abortion illegal. Now you can only imagine the death threats, the family pressure, what he would then receive once the country knew that he was voting against legalizing abortion. Remember what happened to justice gorge stitch or Amy Coney Barrett or our current justices once the new roe V wade decision was leaked. People showed up at their homes, there were protests. There were death threats, history is simply repeating itself. I mean, what's so fascinating with all this copy is that there are some people who think and maybe this is just a distorting effect of memory that, you know, going back to the 70s and 80s and 90s, this sort of thing didn't happen that we lived in the kind of kinder gentler America and all this sort of journalistic terrorism and putting ideological pressure or threats against justices. And I think what you're saying is that it did happen. And particularly on this exact same issue. So this is a fascinating film, guys. You need to see it. Go to roe V wade movie dot com. Is that the best place Cathy for people to check out the film? Absolutely.

"Slash dinesh. Guys, I'm really thrilled to welcome to the podcast. A friend of mine, Kathy Lynn. She is the writer and director of the film roe V wade. By the way, the film is at roe V wade movie dot com. My Kathy is an independent film producer, writer. She served as head of production for big picture, and she's produced all these cool films, alien abduction, a sci-fi thriller with Lawrence bender. The experiment starring Adrien Brody and Forest Whitaker and Steven TK's thriller. Isolation. Kathy, welcome to the podcast. Thanks so much for joining me. Talk to me a little bit about the importance of doing films that convey stories, but stories that deal with current events. Why did you make the roe V wade movie? Well, thank you so much for having me today, dinesh, and it is an important conversation. Mainstream films at the moment are driven mostly by a very liberal agenda. And so to me, it's very important to make narrative films as well as documentaries like yours that showcase topics that are relevant to today's news. So for example, my film roe V wade goes along with the history of how that law that legalized abortion in the United States was passed in 1973. So we tell the true story of exactly how that case came to the Supreme Court, how it passed and all of the manipulations and conspiracies and fake news that went along with it back in the 70s. And that's super important because as we all know history repeats itself. And what happened in the 70s is not much different than what happened today. And so many ways. Debbie and I saw the film and we found it riveting because, well, it's a feature film, as you say, but it's revealing all this true new information that people don't have, and you could have made it as a documentary in which you interview sources. But you chose to do it as a story, a feature film. Is that because the medium of the feature film in some cases is a better way to reveal history than the sort of the documentary approach you know what? I think that they're both useful. I think that narrative feature films have their place in the sense of the audience doesn't feel like you're trying to shove anything down their throat. They don't feel like they're in an educational setting in a lesson. A story is a little bit easier to digest. It's dramatic. There's characters that you could follow along with. Some familiar faces like John Voight and Stacey dash and Robert Davi that people can be fans of. And when you're hearing a story told by such prolific actors that you love, sometimes it sinks in a little bit better. And then maybe you get so interested in the topic that you'll then dig deeper and watch a great documentary that will interview the real sources. I've certainly found a lot of people that have seen our film, then go and look up interviews with the different Supreme Court Justices and the different key players at the time. And that was the whole point of making the movie.

"Do it today. Obama is back and he is back by popular demand, not popular to bad from the American people and certainly not for me. But popular demand from the Democrats and you can kind of see why they're turning to Obama, the alternative is Biden. Normally in a midterm, the President Biden would be out there stomping for these candidates. But they don't want them, particularly in the swing districts. But they think that Obama has got perhaps some of his old juice his old mojo, if you will. And so here's Obama showing up in Georgia to try to save Stacey Abrams in the gubernatorial contest with Brian Kemp, trying to boost Warnock in his race against Herschel Walker, and then awful Obama goes to Wisconsin where he's trying to help Mandela Barnes and his race against Ron Johnson. And so Obama is doing what Obama does. And I can't deny that he is a well, you can't say compared to Biden because there's no comparison. There's no point doing a comparison. But he's a skilled rhetorician. And he has a kind of relaxed style where he seems to be an awe shocks jovial kind of guy just talking regular talk with regular people, but we have to just remember that this is the Obama routine. This is how Obama conned the American people in 2008. He was less successful in conning them in 2012 because some of them, quite a few actually figured him out, and by 2016, many of us had figured him out and in fact, of course, Hillary's defeat was obviously partly in 2016, partly a measure of Hillary, herself as a horrible individual corrupt and the clintons, but it was also a referendum on the Obama presidency, Obama had had two terms, and if people were really thrilled with Obama Hillary would probably have made it in the same way that George H. W. Bush made it really on the strength of Reagan's successful two term presidency. But what Obama is trying to do is sort of come in at a time where Democrats appear to be increasingly anxious and perhaps even a little desperate about the midterms which are only 8 days away and they're looking for Obama to sort of give us a message to find the message for us. And Obama's message appears to be that number one, the Republicans are nuts coming up with one crazy theory after another. Of course, he doesn't specify what these theories are. He just acts like we kind of all know that they're crazy. And Obama might affect says something like, well, you know, they accuse me of not being born in America. And now that wouldn't even make the top ten list of crazy. And Obama also goes right to the issue of abortion and gays. Where he goes, is it Republican politicians and judges who should get to decide when you start a family or how many children you should have or who you marry or who you love and the left cheer

"Phillips to show up today, and if they don't reveal the FBI confidential source in the so called conic matter, they will be jailed. He says the Marshalls will be here if you don't comply with what the Marshals with what I've ordered you to do. You are going to go to jail and you're going to stay in jail until you do. Wow. Now, let's look at what's going on here because all of this started when Catherine and Greg had some public presentations in the forum that they called the pit. They talked about their so called Tiger project, and they talked about the fact that there was U.S. election data valuable, critical, confidential data. That was being collected by this election software company named connick. Run by a guy named Eugene yu, who has, by the way, deep ties to China and to the Chinese Communist Party. He's in fact offered his company connick to run Chinese elections with the Communist Party, presumably among rival Communist Party candidates. And so this guy is evidently involved in U.S. elections and he has made agreements to keep the election data confidential and true the vote said that he had been violating those commitments and storing data in a manner that made it accessible to Chinese sources, Chinese officials, and of course the Chinese government. Now, conic sued through the vote and said the truth of vote has sort of broken into our data system through the vote is racist because Eugene U is just has a Chinese name and he's being accused of being a kind of a Chinese agent. And so this is the lawsuit that U.S. district judge Kenneth hoyt is dealing with. But right as this lawsuit was filed, Eugene U, the CEO of chronic was arrested, he was arrested by the Los Angeles district attorney's office. This is the office of George gascon, and he was arrested for exactly what true the vote had accused him of doing. In fact, Greg Phillips went out to California and testified before the grand jury. He was one of the sources that made the case to the grand jury and the grand jury found that there was probable cause there was sufficient evidence to make the to proceed with the case and in fact to make the make the arrest. And so what I find odd about this whole thing is you've got you've got here a case in Houston and you would think that the judge in Houston would say, hey, listen, we've got a criminal case going on in California that is looking at comics involvement in very serious data breaches and very serious offenses. By the way, Eugene U is also accused of embezzling a big chunk of money that was provided by the city of Los Angeles for election contracts purloining that money apparently to his own personal use. So there are two separate lines of accusation, if you will, in the, in the complaint, filed in Los Angeles. And you would think that the Texas judge would be like, listen, you know, it's silly for us here to be trying to adjudicate whether through the voted something wrong with regard to conic, why don't we let the case in Los Angeles play out? Let's see what happens. Let's see what the culpability is of chronic. And then if necessary, we can take up the matter here. But no, the judge appears to think that he is going to adjudicate the case himself.

"And of course the question is, what kind of a socialism are we going to be seeing? Is it going to take Brazil over the next several years down? Let's say the Venezuelan road. That would be terrible. That would be disastrous for Brazil. And let's remember Brazil is a big one of the big players in the world and certainly the biggest country in the region. So very influential for all of Latin and South America. Now, in this election, there was a kind of an early aversion around one of the election and Bolsonaro came close enough. That was also Lula was slightly ahead, but the polls had Lula winning hands down. He's ten points ahead of Bolsonaro, but the runoff was forced by the fact that the candidates came very close together, so obviously the other candidates were eliminated. It was a straight off runoff between the two and Lula seems to have pulled it off. Now I'm not sure that this means that Brazil is finished that Brazil is down for the count that we're going to see tyrannical socialism in Brazil. But I think I'd have to say that is a real possibility. And it's a possibility that would be particularly tragic. As I think about the result, I mean, I feel really bad. Not so much for Bolsonaro, but I feel bad for the Brazilians who are trying to stop the country's slide toward a destructive socialism. So if we get there, if Brazil does become a big Venezuela, these are the people who will have desperately tried to avert that outcome, but would not have been successful in doing that. We see in Brazil, a lot of similarities to the American situation, by and large the urban vote goes for the socialists, the leftist, the media is heavily left wing, the academic class is very much in bed with the socialists. The pollsters are on the left, and therefore the polls tend to magnify the support of the left. Again, when you look at Brazil as a country and you let's just say colored red and blue using, of course, the American kind of coloring system. You see that most of the country went for Bolsonaro. And there's just pockets, urban pockets, and particularly one large pocket. And that pocket as it turns out is run by narco terrorist gangs. So there's a lot of suspicion in Brazil. I don't know if this will actually become an issue, but that there was an awful lot of shenanigans and fraud and intimidation going on in that part of Brazil.

I never see it. Nobody sees it. I bet you don't either. Obviously in any platform, if you search high and wide, you're gonna find some examples of it. But their point is, not that they were really even care so much about the hate speech because think about it. Most of the censorship has nothing to do with hate speech. What is the Hunter Biden story have to do with hate speech? What a censoring information on COVID or debates about climate change, a debates about the abortion. What do those have to do with hate speech per se? The left's real goal is to sense or not hate speech, but political speech. There will goal is to shut down their opponents and one Elon Musk right now stands very strongly in the way.

"Not just his offer to buy, but his purchase and then his hit the ground running approach. To this very important platform. Let's remember there has been for the past year and a half huge censorship going on. And huge manipulation of results manipulation of the exposure going on on the three biggest platforms, namely Twitter and Facebook and YouTube. Now, Facebook and YouTube are unrepentant. They are the same. Debbie thinks that they're actually going to get worse now that Twitter has become a free speech platform, although it could go the opposite way. It could be that when you have censorship, you need a coordinated regime of censorship, a kind of censorship across all major platforms for the censorship to really work, and that once one platform breaks loose, you have a sort of, let's call it the glass nose effect. Using the phrase that was used by used by Gorbachev to describe the kind of opening up of the old Soviet Union glasnost and perestroika were Gorbachev's two terms. So it could be the glasnost will extend from Twitter to YouTube and we'll see a kind of thaw occur even there. We will see. Now, I want to outline some of Elon Musk's steps. He comes into Twitter. First of all, he's labeled himself chief twit, which is kind of amusing. Shows that he has a rye approach to Twitter. And he comes in carrying a sink and he goes, let that sink in. So that to me is a little zany, but nevertheless, he's in the building. He brings with him his Tesla engineers. I think this is really important because part of what Elon is saying is I don't trust the engineer as a Twitter. And I want them to explain the code to my Tesla engineers, they will sort of take it from here, and he locked the Twitter engineers out so that they couldn't alter the code. They couldn't basically fool with the company kind of on their way out the door. A bunch of these engineers will let go and most importantly, the top brass at Twitter were all fired, including para gagar wild, the CEO, and vijaya got a basically, I call it, you know, she's the mem sahib of censorship. She was the one running the so called content moderation. She's the one who played a key role in banning Trump off the platform. She's the one who played a key role in suppressing the Hunter Biden story.

"And so put those facts together and ask, how does this square with the left and the media and the democratic narrative that this is some kind of a violent trumpster, a right winger, a maga type who has been radicalized by maga rhetoric and is engaging in political violence. It doesn't square at all. And so it appears that having now realized that, having realized that the more plausible explanation given the facts I just outlined is that Paul Pelosi arranged a meeting with this guy. He knew him in any event. The guy shows up, who knows what was going on and how the two men ended up in their underpants. But Paul Pelosi then calls the police reveals the guy's name, so clearly he had some familiarity with him. And so all of this would appear to imply that this might have been some kind of tryst, some kind of rendezvous that went sideways, went wrong. Now, the San Francisco police have subsequently come out and tried to quote clear the matter up by introducing new facts. So new fact number one is that no, this was a mistake that was misreporting and they both were not in their underwear. Only Paul Pelosi was. Number two, I think more significantly, Paul Pelosi supposedly did not know his attacker. But this fact number two is now problematic because there's a police recording in which Paul Pelosi reveals the guy's name is David, and the attacker turns out to be David depe, age 42. So Pelosi clearly did know his name and Pelosi also described him as a friend. Now, part of the report I'm reading say that, well, Pelosi was just being unbelievably cunning. He tricked the assailant into allowing him to go to the bathroom. He was in a sense putting on the idea that the guy was a friend, but I'm thinking to myself, that doesn't make any sense because the man wasn't with Pelosi in the bathroom, Pelosi was alone. That's how he was able to make the phone call. He was not under any rhetorical pressure. It wasn't like the guy had a gun to his head or he was trying to appease the guy and talking to the police in his presence, in which case he might describe the guy as a friend, so as to reassure the guy, but no, quite clearly, Pelosi was by himself volunteering that he knew the guy knew his name and that he was a friend. So how do you square that with the sort of new edited version of the facts that we're now getting? It looks to me like this is a cover up job and that the San Francisco police, so sort of, let's call it, you know, Pelosi's militia are covering up for the most influential family in San Francisco namely the Pelosi's. They release facts and the facts are very incriminating incriminating toward Pelosi. And so they go, it's time to revise the facts. It's time to come up with new facts so we can blame the guy who really needs to be blamed who is guess who. Trump, so evidently Trump was not on the scene, knows nothing about this. Is dealing with other issues in Mar-a-Lago and elsewhere, he's the real culprit.

America needs this voice. The times are crazy, and a time of confusion, division, and lies. We need a brave voice of recent understanding and truth. This is the dinesh d'souza podcast. The incident involving Paul Pelosi gets weirder and weirder and it's also an incident in which the facts appear to change, or at least the reporting of facts, both from the police and from the media. Seem to alter based upon whether or not the facts fit a kind of given narrative. Now, let's start with the facts as initially presented. You have a guy who shows up to attack Paul Pelosi. Evidently, in his underwear. So not only is Paul Pelosi in his underwear, no surprise, it's his own house. It's two in the morning, but the assailant is reportedly in his underwear. Wow. Then when the police show up supposedly, the two men both have a hammer. Not one hammer, but two hammers. And the assailant attacks Paul Pelosi, not before he's not lying on the floor, but while the police are there. That's odd. How did the police know to get there? Paul Pelosi made a phone call and the phone call was, he said, from his bathroom. So according to Paul Pelosi, he went to the bathroom, he took a quote bathroom break from the assailant. He's under assault. He goes, hold on, I gotta go to the bathroom. The guy led some evidently. Paul Pelosi says his phone was charging in the bathroom, and in the bathroom he's able to make a phone call. Now that makes no sense. But granted that maybe this happened that way, Paul Pelosi then tells the police and we can hear this on the police recording the police a summarizing what Paul Pelosi told him and what he said is the guy's name is David. He names him. And then he says he is, quote, a friend, a friend. Now this is on the recording. You can go listen to it.

"Explosive holiday celebrations are more common than you think. Almost everyone is familiar with American Independence Day. When towns all over the country light up the night sky with elaborate firework displays. It's held on July 4th. The day the founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence and officially severed ties with England. The tradition dates all the way back to the first anniversary of the signing in 1777, when Philadelphia Pennsylvania became host to a full blown festival, it included the ringing of bells, a parade, and the launch of 13 rockets into the air. But July 4th isn't the only holiday where things explode. There's also the beltane fyre festival in Scotland. Every April 30th, the beltane fire society of Edinburgh lights torches and a huge bonfire to ring in the beginning of summer. Some who join in the festivities shed their clothes and dance among the flames as music plays into the night. And who could forget Burning Man, the weeklong community events held at the end of August each year in Nevada. On the Saturday night before Labor Day, an 85 foot tall wooden effigy is burned in the middle of the desert as attendees gather around dancing and cheering. Meanwhile, the small town of San Juan de la Vega, Mexico has its own celebration, and it's not only a lot of fun, it's also incredibly dangerous. The thing about a tradition is old as this one is that its origin isn't definitive. According to one account, the festival got its start in the 17th century when a man known as San juanito decided to go up against the local landowners who were taking money out of the hands of the hardworking townsfolk. San juanito began stealing back from them, earning him the nickname of Mexico's Robin Hood. Unfortunately, his efforts also resulted in retribution from those landlords, a fight ensued, and one side resorted to using hammers fitted with small bombs that detonated on impact. Another story claimed that Juan de la Vega, the man for whom the town was named, had his gold stolen by bandits. St. John the Baptist helped him get it back and the town's residents celebrated by time explosives to large hammers and setting them off. Whatever the case, the victory is honored today with a festival every February known in Spanish as fiesta de Los matios, explosives. In English, it's called the festival of exploding hammers. San Juan de la Vega, located about a 160 miles north of Mexico City, is quiet for most of the year, with very little going on to illicit concern. People go about their daily lives without incident until that one day in February when they pull out their sledgehammers and gunpowder, and let loose. Modern day revelers don't use anything as volatile as dynamite or C four. Instead, they fasten a mixture made of potassium chlorate and sulfur to the end of their sledgehammers. The hammers are then hoisted and slammed onto a steel beam in the middle of a rocky field. What follows is a giant cloud of smoke in a blast with a force so strong. It's enough to send someone flying back several feet. It is so popular, thousands come to witness the event with over a 101st responders standing by in case things go wrong, which they do. A lot. In 2020, 43 people required medical attention, including one person who was carried out on a stretcher after he hurt his leg in the blast. And the people wielding the hammers aren't the only ones who suffer injuries, either. Spectators in the line of fire are often hit by shrapnel caused by the blasts. It's clear that the festival of exploding hammers is one of the most unique cultural traditions recognized today. And if you decide to go and see it for yourself, maybe wear some protective goggles.

"From the abraham lincoln radio studio the george washington broadcast sir. Jack armstrong and getty armstrong and getty show. You still get to be the goat if the last thing people remember. Is you quitting on your team for emotional reasons. Greatest of all time olympian gymnast. Simone biles for emotional reasons quit today in that caused her team to drop into the silver medal slot. Just not feeling it. Today is good luck play heart and how about you go out and try anyway. Yeah yeah i'd like to know a little more. I guess she's done an interview already at this point Short one you got to make the point. They were better off without me. Yeah i could feel it. Things were gone sideways. It would i. I helped the team by bowing out. You do have to make that point because she what she said was as worried about doing something silly and then she said i'm gonna take a half day off and then i'm going to decide whether or not i do the individual. That's exactly the wrong thing to say is if you are worried about embarrassing yourself it was was your only worry. And you're concentrating now on the individual. That's not a good look for the whole team. I know squat about gymnastics except that you have to squat jim. High level gymnasts those in the know. Maybe you can text us or emails. Is the team competition. Really just a warm up for the individuals for the elite. Is it just a chance to get out there on the gear in that stadium gift feel for it. Obviously try to pull off your routines. The best you can. It's it's address. Hersal but simone biles saying yeah things. We're not going real well. I i didn't want to injure myself. I need to get my act together. Y'all go ahead have fun but the important part is coming weekend. I'm going to get my head together for the important part. Is that what happened. I don't know and stop looking at social media. All you people have social media is making it so you. Can't you know joe over a volt or go to work or whatever it is. Stop looking at it. Yeah get rid of it. Yeah thanks twitter. We heard a million times barely very important. You guys have got to have it huge social media presence. You gotta be on instagram. Your twitter you. Facebook you an important maybe maybe even more important than the show get. You gotta get your social media. We heard that for years. I haven't been tweet much at all lately. maybe i should. I'll jump on there occasionally. But it's like i dunno. It's like there are things. I like to do a lot. There are things. I like to do once in a while but it's unhealthy. It's like twitter getting hammered. You know if you do it once in a great wiles probably okay but if you find yourself doing it every day you got a problem. Talk the hammer. Yeah i don't know it's toxic and ugly anyway and most people are not on twitter. That is true and most people on twitter don't produce the content. No so handful of people control mccumber station. Yeah the angriest least nuanced most motivated or a prophet minded who produce those opinions like we have tens of thousands of followers. And when i when. I look on there and see who's tweeting at us. It's like the same six of time. Six people. yeah with tens of thousands of dollars so it's just that's just the way all of twitter is yeah yeah So crime is a big and growing story in america. Some of the videos that are coming out now that there are cameras everywhere just horrific brutal crimes. There reminding people who have forgotten somehow. Perhaps they haven't been touched by crime then reminding people that there are predators. There are people who have no compassion for their fellow. Human being they have no desire to make a living they want steal a living in. They'll hurt anybody they have to and or their gang bangers and they just have no regard for human life. They're more than willing to slaughter people. And as the grand experiment decriminalizing crime has gone forward. We've seen rising crime rate. Violent crime rates is horrific numbers shootings in america's blue cities in particular and people are starting to think whoa wait a minute. Whether they're mean people around who will hurt us. Yeah yeah they're always have been we have in jail for wiler over incarceration particularly impacting black people etc and then listen. There are injustices. And they're worth looking into. I think society starting to wake up to the fact that if you decriminalize crime you get a hell of a lot of crime in a hell of a lot of people are hurt. There's one particularly horrific video of a sixty eight year old man just beaten brutally and robbed by young man leave race out of it He's He had a number of broken bones. Broken nose facial injuries. It's going to be in the hospital for a long time. And i think sometimes it's easy to forget or people just don't contemplate the fact that that man will be damaged for life. He will live the rest of his life in pain and fear physical pain from his broken bones. It will not go away and fear that will never leave his brain. Not can't imagine that's what that young man did to him. He's a monster. He needs to be in a cage and not let out again. There are some people who are trying to get your attention pass various Reforms to the reforms criminal. Justice the fabulous. Tim scott was talking about this We didn't get to it yesterday. But i thought the tapes were pretty good Can we do clip fifty. Michael the one thing you cannot do. Police reform is leave the impression that somehow we're going to demonize police officers. That is dead. Stop not gonna happen can't happen. We can see today in baltimore over almost four hundred officers vacant. In other words they need four hundred more officers so much so that they're asking for one hundred federal officers to comment and to fill the void when you demonize police officers when you defend the police and you start talking about this war on police and prosecution and non-crime you're going to have a reduction of forces and if you tell officers of their personal liability is on the line. It is a bad decision. That's one of the reasons why we've never been negotiating on qualified. Immunity for the individual officer is just bad policy. I won't support it. He went on to say we must refund the police training recruitment and that sort of thing and then Chad pilgrim was reporting on a comprehensive crime. Bill that they're trying to get going on the floors of congress clip fifty four michael. The crime scourge grips us cities and americans. Demand solutions earning. His police presence. What they've ever mentioned yet. There are few plans to combat crime in cities controlled by democrats congressional. Democrats resist writing a comprehensive crime. Bill even as they spend trillions elsewhere we have the highest level of violence in fifty years. And we have liberals in washington literally saying we need more. The the economy's overheating. Their formula for success.
