"Now, that's I think what that doctor was arrested for they were trying to get DNA samples from that house. And they they were going to send him in on the supposed- vaccination campaign, and he gets arrested, and then they found a different way to prove that was bin Laden. And of course, you had the overhead of bin Laden walking at night, and you could you could major him. From the overhead that he was what six four something like that. Yeah. And then you start putting it all together. And then you, you know, then the second piece was take care of the Pakistani air force. And then the interesting addendum to all. Of course, is that Dewey Claridge had all those private Intel networks that he was running along the Pakistani border, and how did that play in or not play in starts to get confusing. Yeah. I think that's that's just you know, they don't. You're not gonna get Jay sock to move on speculative intelligence. So Obama sit oh, you know, fifty percent chances there. I just don't think you ever do that. So you think military would they they just say flat out. No, you think Jay sock. Got is on before we sent the door. Yeah. They had some proof whatever that was the NA or something before they went in because the last thing Jay sock needs to do is rate an empty house that high profile. Yeah. Especially if you get a couple helicopter shot down operators killed and it turns out to be a dry hole. Yeah. It's just just wreck the, you know, reputation Jay sock and the military and the White House. That's my armchair view, the whole thing. It's one of those things that's like almost contemporary history. But it's like already lost a history because it's been so muddled. Yeah. Like, I said, I've seen people sense and said, you know, what what I've asked people in the white has what is the range of Black Hawk. You know, I don't know. I said well it couldn't fly all the way from Afghanistan. Audubon, I know that much that without refueling. And then I asked these questions they have no answers for them. So, you know. They tell them absolute wrong that there's it occurred as described by the White House afterwards. I don't believe that. I still find that hard to believe. I don't believe it. Yeah. Nobody in the military beliefs. It thinks about this. Well, this has been a fascinating conversation. I think we covered a lot of ground. I really appreciate you almost a full hour with us. I don't know really what to promote from the great Robert bear. Because as I said the perfect kill twenty one laws of assess for four assassins is the last book the put out, but anything else that you wanna get out there that you're working on or where people could find you. If anywhere. You know, I I do stuff for CNN comment on, sir. Kyle like doing because commenting on the obvious that those guys in Sri Lanka. Somebody taught him how to make those bombs. Yes. They didn't just get on the internet figure that out make nine of them. Go off nearly simultaneously. Absolutely. That that's a bridge too far. I know a long time ago, Bob, but like I said, I read your memoir years ago before before I joined the military. So is like probably when did it come out two thousand two thousand one it came out into came out after nine eleven came to two thousand to two thousand two. Okay. So I must have read it when I when I was just joining, but what's the name of it? So people can go find it it seen evil seeing you made into the movie Siri on with. Could movie too. But yeah, it's a, you know, Bob's memoirs definitely worth giving a re there's some hair raising stories in there. Yeah. What's I got at it? Yeah. See I hates the book. I guess that's an accomplishment. Right comes with the territory. Yeah. While we appreciate it. Thanks for going along with us. All right. Thanks. Thank you. Bob beco. Great interview with Bob Baer there. I mean to me that's a wish guest and really appreciate having them on ABI short. Check.

"I'm John bachelor. The John Batchelor show. And we speak out the Personnages the celebrities political actors in the late twentieth century in the United States and around the world. But there's one actor that you hear are routinely. Now, we just call it or him or her them drones. It's now early two thousand and one this is the year of the strike on the United States by bin Laden. But right now, it's the moments the early moments of the Bush administration it's Indian it's thirty five miles northwest of Las Vegas. What's their Mark? And what happens one morning. Well, what's there is very little at that point? It was a kind of a semi abandoned air force sealed north west as you said of Las Vegas in Indian springs, Nevada, and what was being done out. There was trying to take what was the unarmed predator which had existed for several years and had already been used for surveillance flights over Afghanistan in two thousand and two thousand to spy on al-qaeda and bin Laden's training camps to take it and try to arm it with a hellfire missile. And this was a sort of group of test pilots in a sort of skunkworks out in in Indian springs that were trying to put this very fragile air air airplane in the air with a missile and and see if they could fire it without destroying the plane itself and see if they hit their target and in February of two thousand one they had the first successful predator armed predator test. And what this? Did was it allowed the independent on to then reconsider going back into Afghanistan and later that year and not only being able to see bin Laden or see the training camps, and then have to take Tomahawk missiles from hours away, and and fire them, they would in fact be able to fire the weapon right there because the predator itself was armed. So it really was an extraordinary development. Mark is pointing to a conversation. He highlights in his book earlier in in two thousand this is the the late Clinton administration. Second Clinton administration Sandy Berger. I believe the national security advisor at the time. And he did not have the predator hellfire combination the trigger to pull the CIA didn't have it at as well. And so you report Mark that he grew almost red in the face when he was barking about using Tomahawk being different from the ban on facination than using a seven point six two millimeter. Round which means to shoot somebody in the head the way bin Laden shot in the head in two thousand and eleven and that was not resolved in the Clinton administration or they rejected the idea of using a strike. How was it? Mar. Well, there is as the commission reported there were also two different ideas about how to go about trying to get bin Laden. And ultimately, it wasn't resolved to see I try to put together teams to go after bin Laden again under the feeling that this was a military leader of a military organization. Not a political leader that would fall under the assassination ban. But burgers point was what difference? Does it make how you kill someone? If you're going to kill someone in the concern that the military had was it was. Using cruise missiles others were concerned about taking a bullet in putting it in in bin Laden's, head burger were saying there's no difference. And that sort of is the background to this conversation that ultimately becomes moot. Because they developed the armed predator. And what is very interesting is that this leads into the Bush administration this debate over whether the armed predator should happen where it should lie, and who and who should fly who pulled the trigger really debate continues up until the last moments before nine eleven there's a parallel story here with the use of special forces that will be the option that the president President Obama chooses in the bin Laden raid in two thousand and eleven but that did not come from nowhere. Remember, equal claw. That was the failed operation to rescue the hostage. Hostages in a nine thousand nine hundred eighty at the same time, I learned from Mark. And Mark correct me if I get these facts wrong, Donald Rumsfeld was eager to develop. Yup. Us what we now. Call J socks special forces and he inherited special forces. What's what fragmented around the world? They were subordinate to military commanders, and they weren't focused on one kind of mission. Which is how we use them. Now is that correct? Yeah. I mean digging into that a little bit you have special forces who are the traditional green berets who have operated for decades and with their traditional mission is to train for an arby's. They go into the actors advisors what they call unconventional warfare. The other side of the coin is direct action missions, which are, you know, navy seals and the delta force in people who are considered what they called door kickers trigger pullers and a lot of those forces reside inside joint special operations command, which is based down in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Themselve went down to visit work bragging just in November two thousand one. So just a couple months after nine eleven and he's sort of a like does off of his head, and he sees Jay sock as being this army that could go around the world and carry out this global war that he wanted to wage. The problem was with Jay sock was tiny. It has a very small budget. And the delta force and seal team six were only really equipped and trained to do twenty four hour forty eight hour missions. They were trained to do hostage rescues. They were trained to do seizing nuclear arsenals, if they were ever to become compromised, they were not trained or quit or budgeted to run their own wars, and what Rumsfeld started to do what we saw over. The course of a decade was expanded J sock into an army that could run it bores is started to run aspects of the war in Iraq. It started to have a very significant presence in Afghanistan and its star. Carrying out these wars outside of war zones, whether it be Pakistan, or whether it'd be Yemen. And so this was all many ways started shortly after nine eleven when Rumsfeld saw the utility of J sock. You see now the metaphor that titles marks book the way of the knife. The secret army and a war at the ends of the earth. One the metaphor of the knife scalpels not with a hammer is the drone or the drone now enhanced with the hellfire missile. The other is not to use the United States. Army the World War, Two fashion land on a beach, take the continent. But in fact, to us special forces in all their iterations to go in and out, and again, the conflict, I think it's implicit in what Marcus said the conflict between the CIA that has this ability to launch drones to watch somebody in to pull the trigger and the DOD that now has the ability to launch drones launched special forces and pull the trigger a long range, these two opponents. This is the dry and a little confusing part of the book where the bureaucracies fight. But that's necessary Markazi evidencing the fact that they've not settled the dispute these CIA can use DOD tactics and the DOD can you CIA tactics? It's all mixed up. So when we come back we'll put into action what it is. When the DOD wants to go to war in a country. We're not at war with. I'm John Batchelor. The book is the way of the knife. Mark mazzetti is the author. This is the John.

"Call eight five five six two four four eight to four and join now back live until JIMBO of the security. Studies group, of course, I mean, Jim Hansen. Jim. Let's get serious for a second. For Americans have been lost to servicemen. And I think what contract and maybe another. Civilian were killed in man bitch in a suicide attack. Does this prove the president right or wrong when it comes to those two thousand arenas in Syria. Neither I mean, we do not make US strategy based on individual events events things happen. You know, there's another that usually goes in there, and you do not react to those. Okay. We can be horrified and saddened for the loss. But we don't change our strategy because something bad happens. You have to decide what is our goal in Syria. And I know President Trump has been asking for more than a year. What is the end game in Syria. When will we have succeeded, and the problem was he was not getting an answer that made sense to him. He was being told we have to stay there. Because if we leave Iran will own the battlefield, okay? That's a that's a place there. A way to stay there. Forever. Right. All right. You have to have an end state that leads to our ability to. Exfiltrated from these foreign entanglements. So what's if we say, this is a tragedy? This is what happens in warfare, but we have to zoom out to the strategic to the fifty thousand foot. What is your take? What is the strategic? Studies group take on the strategic objective in that part of the world. He's one hundred percent, right. And the people telling him that we cannot allow Iran to construct their land bridge from Tehran to the Mediterranean. All right. That was part of it. But what you have to do is you have to rely on the regional allies the people in the neighborhood who have skin in the game and we've been convincing both the Saudis in UAE to send some forces there. President Trump made a vital outreach to air to one and Turkey who are a NATO ally. But have not been acting like one for a long time and have been going down the wrong path. He reached out he said, hey, here's the deal. Also, you some missiles you helped me out in Syria and aired iwon apparently agreed on the phone and then started talking smack. Later on saying, maybe I'm not going to deliver. All right. That's a problem. But we had to find out are they an ally. Or are they not are they gonna help? Are they going to be a problem? I think they'll end up helping. Yeah, I do. But I think it'll be begrudgingly. And I think we'll have to kind of force them into it. What we want them to not do is kill our Kurdish allies who they have a problem with because they're afraid of a Kurdish separatism, but we want them to help in ways that stop ISIS, stop, Iran and stop these other things that's President Trump's goal is to us allies and other forms of US power rather than boots on the ground every place. There's a problem. Let let me ask you the the impolitic question. Then you're a former eighteen Bravo. Your weapons officer green beret. Due local partners have the capacity because in some in Colombia it worked we we had a small footprint in El Salvador, the congress wouldn't give more than President Reagan more than fifty five SF guys to help our friends fight the Sandinistas do our local partners. Let's put Turkey to decide for second have the capacity. If we have enough China's I think it's it's remains to be seen. But I think they can and we have to try. I mean, the option is to go ahead and say, no, we're going to stay and we're going to occupy. And we don't have enough troops to do that two thousand troops can't garrison Syria. Yes. All right. So if we're not going to do that, we have to have tribal engagement there are Sunni tribes there who got slaughtered and destroyed by ISIS, we need to reach out to them. We should be doing that with Arabs. There is maybe SUNY era ABS is since we have some friends in the Gulf and potentially US advisors and other folks who can back stop them. I'm probably some precision strike, and you know, kind of a reaction force of some sort there should be some J sock. This is my next question. Do you prefer Jay sock, you prefer title fifty intelligence capabilities or is it for the full brag green berets writ large? What's the best option in your opinion? Yes. I think. Yeah. Yeah. I think a mix of all of that. And the less, you know, we go ahead and tell them as President Trump is want to say exactly how we're going to do it. Great. They should just occasionally see things blowing up and bad things happening and wonder who the heck was that. Was it the seals was it side was a delta was it just an SF team with a bad attitude. I don't care. I just want the bad guys to suffer. And I want them to fear 'cause deterrence is much better than action given a choice. I would rather conduct one raid to encourage the others not act so badly than to constantly be having to put troops on the ground to stop them physically from doing it. What is it sun? Suu set the ultimate victory is making your enemy defeating him without fighting bingo, not even applying steel on target not even applying kinetic four psyching them out with the old strike here. And they they don't know who did it could be else could be Donald Trump colleague, Jay Salkin knows. But they don't know this is Victor Davis Hanson, if this is familiar he wrote. A superb piece on this question. My question marks in the mind of your adversaries are a wonderful thing a wonderful thing when they don't know unlike the former commander in chief who telegraph everything and then what did he do? He didn't actually follow through on his promises. Need I mentioned red lines? That's why James said because he brings us clarity on things that people tell us in the so-called elite are far too complicated. They love to use the word. Oh, it's nuanced. No. It's not clouds of its nail. That war is simple. It's not easy. But it's simple. And he said that what over two centuries ago, you are listening to me, Sebastian Gorka. He with America.

"Natural progression for Uber to make that crazy huge accent for lift sort of keeping on brand with how typically behaves sort of smooth more smoothly more under the radar kind of make its way in the public markets. Is that what you're saying? They're more on brand by following. But didn't quite say as if looking to gig disciplined there. In a sense. They are I mean, they were second. And I think it would be on brand her under following Uber's footsteps and sort of learning from mistakes as they have done from the beginning. And that's not to say, let's not to take credit away from them. Because I also think that they have a completely different approach with how they've scaled. But still I think it's sort of on brand. Well, I like I like lift a lot I've been to lift user forever. And so I'm kind of excited to see there s ones will all of these companies are going to drop the most fascinating documents. I'm kind of counting on December is going to be so boring this year. I don't I don't know what we're going to do with thirty one days of boredom, but January is going to be is going to be amazing. Okay. Finally our fourth deck, according they make public in nineteen is Airbnb as mentioned, and if I recall they're worth thirty one billion dollars. So a little bit less than half. Uber. But tell us what's going on there. Yeah. A little less than half Buber. But I think it makes them like the second or third most valuable company. So they're still a a monster of a company, and I think of all these. These I mean Pinterest as well. But like I'm pretty skeptical of this IPO will happen in two thousand nineteen and even in a branch, husky the company's CEO seem skeptical himself at Recode code conference in may he said we will be ready to IPO next year. But I don't know if we will and pretty much all his comments have been kind of like, you know, we can. But we'll and like, yeah. Okay. They can as the most recent numbers coming out of Airbnb are very impressive in Q three twenty eighteen the company said it was their strongest quarter to date where they saw us quote, substantially more quote than one billion in revenue which very interesting way of putting it, but you know, even if it was just a billion in revenue one quarter. That's that's really impressive. So Airbnb is making a lot of money. And I think just today they announced that they were going to be starting to construct homes or something very, you know, they're they're expanding their business in crazy ways. They're scaling. They're growing rapidly. I think they're on track to to hit the public markets. And they've today raised three point four billion in debt and equity funding and the hemmitt raised since September twenty seventeen. So that's usually a sign that is they're looking to probably prepped for the for the IPO. But we'll see maybe they'll maybe they'll raise another round in December something to write about. Hey, remind me if I'm told me if I'm wrong here. But didn't when they nounce the the one the greater than one billion dollar revenue number. Didn't they also say there EBA profitable? Yes. They did say that they were they were profitable on FM. Yeah. Receiver acronyms I despise. That's your favorite acronym. Surely, there are worse ones. Like now. Terrible. It's terrible. Because nobody really nobody outside the circle knows what it means. It's like constantly us. Oh, gosh. The only one that comes to mind is worse. All of a sudden is Jay sock. But they're they're God worse acronyms than EBay dog. Because this is like kind of cute and round and fuzzy I don't know, it's it's seven no six just too much earnings before interest taxes depreciation amortization, right? Yeah. But I wonder how many people actually no not be IT d if you didn't know now, you do see equity brings the information to the people. That's what the show is for. Okay. On a more serious note. Airbnb lost its last CFO. If I recall kind of the rumors it was because he didn't get along with the CEO who wanted to do outlandish things in the CFO being CFO was like, well, what if we didn't do that? I think the last year Lawrence. I think he just CFO wanted to set the company up to have a really successful IPO. And he was making all these hard calls about keeping the company in line..

It was in a really peculiar time. It was after tour borough. We lost Neil. Matt bourgeois got blown up member that Tarnak farms, and so we had put an I didn't learn a lot of this much later. We agency had put Karzai in power, right? We were orchestrating that whole thing. And so the summer we'd started out and nobody really knew because Jay sock in the agency still controlled all the battlespace. So we were like we thought we were gonna show up and there'd be here's a stack of of of missions for you pick out whichever one. You want your seal team go pick out, you know. And we didn't nobody knew because nobody didn't doing it at all. And I remember I was like all right. Who knows what's going on? So I started going out and asking every unit. Or the bad guys literally broke literally literally like I'll never forget the ozzy's coming in after being out for thirty days under lorries looking like they had just kicked ass they were road warrior looking.

I'm like, what are you guys doing? Right. And as it turns out, the battlespace nobody knew the Jay the talks were all on organized because Jay sock was not saying anything anybody. It was still hyper compartmentalize the agency. Sure shit won't talk and anybody, and but these guys learn whatever area they give you just get your vehicles. Go drive around and pick a fight. Right. Recon by recon by fire, and that's it. And so we were the like the other seal team one put tune they didn't have any no no-one had vehicles. We didn't even have vehicles, bro. I mean, people argue about not having armored vehicles. We didn't have vehicle we stole Humby fucking Kuwait to drive in Iraq for fuck sake. Right there. We borrowed the canned soft troop. Carrier humvee. So we could go operate because the DVD's suck and Afghantistan. Right. I suck periods. Well, they're super fund drive in an open desert. Right. So we just said all right? Let's do it.

"Me. I can't go to Yemen. I'm an analyst. I write reports. Yes. Brings back memories. So that's from the new Jack Ryan series on Amazon prime which many of you have been asked me about brought to my attention and emailing about and such and I gotta tell you that. I like it. I think it's good. I think that they did a good job. There's some stuff that's a little perfunctory and the writing is a little too cute in some places in terms of the story line. I'll give you my full sense of it. I mean, it's entertaining. It's well done the production. Values are good. It moves quickly. So I really like it. I probably give it an A minus the language that they use and the terminology and the way they talk about things a lot of the the different acronyms that come up. They did their research. They actually use real lingo, and and not all of it. But but a a fair amount of it, which I like because it's just laziness for a lot of riders a lot of writers, otherwise, and I like the scene where he says, we're not agents were officers meeting people say CIA agent. That's always the big tell for us, especially when somebody says, my uncle was a former CIA agents say, well, if you really knew him, and if he really was one he would've told you at CIA officer, it is it is not as you're a CIA agent. If you're an asset being run by a CIA. Officer a one who works for a officer in getting espionage information. So you know that that's an important distinction. They make there's a lot of things that are good. Look, John, John Christine. Ski is a very charismatic leading guy who would have thought Jim from the office. You know, you put on twenty pounds of muscle. And all of a sudden, he's an action hero was kinda like the other guy that I really like from parks and rec who. Also, what's his name Pratt? Chris Pratt who put on a whole bunch of muscle. And now he's an action star to man, I wish I could take off six months and just just work out each breast and cruciferous vegetables all day. And then just see what happens that'd be fun. But I don't think I've got that in the schedule anytime soon, I barely have time to sleep. But Jack Ryan back the show some of the things I liked it's contemporary. So it's kind of the Jack Ryan architecture setup by Tom Clancy in terms of characters and basic storyline. Fast. Portage it today. Today. So you've got ISIS in Syria and Yemen and the Muslim suburbs of Paris. And there's just there's a lot of stuff they working. That's good. There's some good footage of Langley in it. I like that. Krinsky lives in Georgetown. Look I can't help but feel a little nostalgic. I watched the show, and it's about a CIA analyst and he lives in Georgetown, and he works on Mideast issues. And I think at one point he walks into the sea tease or he's working with C T C. Well, I was a CIA analyst NC TC who lived in Georgetown. So now, I did not get airlifted by the coast guard from fancy party on the Maryland shore in front of my soon to be girlfriend nothing that cool happen to me. But I was in the room in some big briefing rooms full of a lot of big honchos at the in the intelligence community overall. I did sit down with director Mike Hayden at different times. And and brief him on things. It's so it just it. Brought back memories. I would really be curious to hear from some friends in the special operations community. What they think of the scene. Were they use Jason guys or when they are playing Jay sock guys. I should say. To do different raids and and the military component of it. I mean on the if I'm gonna analyze how realistic the analyst stuff is the basics of it or correct in that. Yeah. You look at, you know, look at phone records and E mail records, and it's a lot of investigative work. It does not move, of course, anywhere near the universe of as quickly doesn't show Krinsky sits there, and he goes, you know, what he all of a sudden nose the whole plan. I mean, look you got to suspend disbelief with these things if they made a show about being a CIA analyst that was real it would involve a lot of long arduous treks to the Starbucks know, it's not what people think that it is there's some other cool stuff. You know, there are some undisclosed locations and things where you get to do some really interesting training and other stuff, but you know, overall, I think that it's it's a good series a good show. And here's the big part of it, the part that I think a lot of you'll really like if you haven't seen it already. It was advertised to me because I saw this making the rounds on social media as oh, this is a show that celebrates toxic masculinity and white male privilege. I was like sold sign me up. This sounds great. You know, we're not going to have to watch a show that is constantly jamming some kind of an agenda down our throats. I I really don't need a show about a a try sexual non gender binary eskimo who I'm sorry in you, it who happens to be a super special covert agent or something you also knows lots of karate. I don't need that. I just want. I just want good characters. And I also would like the recognition of the reality that America's in right now, which is that some of our most dangerous and implacable foes are in fact jihadists that. Doesn't mean that we're at war with the Muslim world all that stuff. Still applies. Of course, it's it's embarrassing that we feel the need to say that. But you know, if media matters is listening to this. I gotta make sure that I cover myself because we all know that already and we have many Muslim allies in that fight. But radical Islam is a real threat of real danger to us, and at least so far in this show on Amazon prime the Jack Ryan show, they do not go down the road of well, the real threat isn't jihadists, it's white nationalists who have overtaken the US government or something. It's you see so much of this from Hollywood. And it's just annoying, and it doesn't resonate with us. Because when you're worried about a BioChem weapon going off biological or chemical weapon going off somewhere. The chances are that you think it's going to be from a guy who's gonna yell lot walk bar before he detonates it. But that's just reality and our arch in this case in our entertainment with a show like this should reflect at some level. What are? Our reality is just makes it much more interesting and enjoyable experience, by the way, the character who's kind of the the well, he's really a supervisor I going gonna say the right hand, but the buddy cop element of the show, and it's obviously a CIA show not a cop show, but that actor who plays. He's the black grizzled veteran supervisor of Christie's character is bunk from the wire for those of you who are fans of the wire. So that's kind of fun for me. Because I I really enjoyed that show. But you know, the Jack Ryan show is good. And it's just going just goes to show folks with all of the different espionage thrillers. And all that, you know, you just need a story. That is compelling with good characters where there's good guys and bad guys and stuff happens. And you care it doesn't you don't have to reinvent the wheel. You just have to execute on this straightforward aspects on on these straightforward. Elements of good story and good storytelling. And I think that the Amazon prime show pretty much does that if you have any specific questions, by the way about something that you think is well, if you wanna ask me, if something is real or how, you know, I'm happy to tell you my my sense of it. But just understand this. You would not go from being analyst to field operative to which they refer to as case officers, which is the proper terminology to interrogator back to and then essentially door kicker, you know, no, no, no. It doesn't work that way. That's you don't get to cover all that ground. But if you have any other questions about it, if I can answer, it, I will if I can just tell you cannot confirm nor deny, but I will recommend that any of you that have the chance if you if you have Amazon prime or if you thought about watching it two thumbs way up I really thought it was a good series. I'm looking forward to the next. I hope they make next season of it. Christine ski was was pretty excellent. I thought you know, he's a very charming actor and okay now my one criticism. I don't know her name, but I don't like the female lead. I just don't I think she's a little I don't know. There's something vaguely European about. Maybe she is a European actress. But it just it doesn't strike me as a good. I don't like the chemistry between the two leads. It just didn't work for me. It's didn't work for me. But I'm very picky about these things. Six fifty. Do you have something you want to say, but feel you just can't express it? Especially on today's social media, perhaps it's because you don't have.

Vietnam didn't happen like everything's been so dissolved in the dying brains of the boomers who run this country and the media that all we have are like misremembered references to fill MC representations of what happened in our supposed history. Oh, he'd be a kidney candy store if he were alive now. I mean he lost his shit over nine eleven, but imagine this. Yeah, it really is like perfect about Apocalypse Now because Trump is Colonel Kurt. Like he's, he's just got a throng of a Doering villagers. Cking gibberish. That's him. Him at the temple is just like he's just making speeches like big bur-, big bird knocked good, very bad, and they're like, they think he's God like he can just get up there and say whatever. And I guess I guess the guy sent to kill him would be what like Jeff flake. Robbie other fucking obvious males. Yeah, Robert Muller. But the thing is, is that because we have this collapse of a shared reality and radical splintering of of of worlds. Yes, he is Kurt's with his villagers, but so is everyone's a fucking everyone is a worshiper of Kurtz now because fucking Yulon musk is the same thing for different group of people. You know, like figure that they all sort of in hushed tones sit around and think is going to deliver them. Everyone is just sitting at the at the feet of this degenerate, billionaire just blathering. In his his last like cogent moments and just nodding their heads because this is the only deliverance they can imagine you're in a cargo Colt and you have to express yourself by seeing the right type of movie. Now talking about how important it is the other way of voting to to things about what we kicked off the show with these TV's Trump sort of monologues and one. A meason being in like the old right or like right, nationalist circles and being like, this is the guy that's gonna save the white race. Like reading this and being like, yeah, days volt motherfucker. Like we're bringing back the crusades or whatever who's a more accurate representation of European kings of old true. This is what they were lies. Habsburg is fuck to you up the Muller thing. These Vietnam vet all these veterans groups who, again adore him because all he talked about was how great veterans are and how much he loves Lovie Lovie awards, awards. and then they get the guy they want. And then he just gratuitously degrades and insults them, which I think owns, and frankly they deserve it. But more than that, this goes to the other thing I wanted to talk about the the hen ringing that fucking occurred this week when he just revoked John Brennan security clearance and the fuck in Wales caterwauling of people being like, sir, revoked by security clearance to, sir a man. I can take it and it's just like again yet, like all the people who hate Trump are holding out for another Vietnam veteran, Robert, Muller and other dead. I'd psycho cop, two fucking Bill out or John Brennan. The former head of the fucking CIA and you're mad that this guy got his as I described his subscription to secrets magazine cancelled by the president. My favorite of all was a general mcraven. The guy fucking scared hill is written. A whole book about is like. Jay sock. Is this kind of like army within the army? That's just a global assassination. Don't use a j. soccer. He's a rug. Mcraven who, again, people are counting him as possibly running for president, which is a fucking scary thing. Mcraven did the whole revoke my security clearance, sir. Again, all the liberals. They all love this shit. They love it. And I'm saying in the way the way that only Nixon could go to China only Trump could get like just blatantly get away with just straight up insulting five star generals that would again hackers whatever Matt brought it up before. But imagine if Obama had just told mcraven to just lick his asshole, equivalent of what Trump is doing to these people. And the headline I saw was like mcraven the five star general who was commended the bin Laden raid, and I'm like, oh, wow, he commanded the raid that sit of Pakistani secret intelligence telling him the literal address..
