"To the best of the Jim Bohannon Show. Welcome back Jim Bohannon Show 186650 Jimbo. What 86 505 or 6 to 6 with Randy Larson, The man behind the very informally blogged a good war dot com. We're talking about the war on the pandemic. Another college students are heading back to school. In some cases, In some cases, they're heading to virtual school. And of course we've got in some cases, college football returning in some cases. I'd like your thoughts about first of all. What about the college students? I mean, for those who show up on campus? Ah, what we we stick them in in some kind of giant enclosed dorm like the bubble boy. I mean, what do we do? Well, you know, there's something to be said about put them in in dorms, and I know I have said before that, you know, put him in dorms, locking down Indian food, beer, condoms and they go, you know, you know they got their young. There's much less chance of them getting very serious illness from this. And we don't want to send them all back home. And now that particularly those that are on campus is now the last thing we want to do in the camp involved. Once they know we're not gonna have cracks. We don't want to send them all back home to their communities. Someone. We're going to take it back with him. Now I do want to give you one good point of days before we get to sports kind of connected that everybody's been saying, Well, yeah, down south. It's really bad, you know recently, well hospitalizations air down 62% 6 people sent in Florida 40%, Utah and 44%, Louisiana from their peak. Which was the week of July 20th those air pretty significant reductions, things seemed to be improving a lot and in Florida and excess. Of fatalities are down 60% since the week of July 20th pretty amazing. So I applied the SEC and we wanna have football now. Everyone's the I'm on a conference call with a bunch of my colleagues and one of the guys is infectious disease, Doc and he is an advisor to the A. And one of the things I've learned from him. The doesn't have much authorities. I I thought that they certainly control the playoffs and stuff. With bars where there's gonna be games. That seems to be more of the conferences. And I know Georges talking about having games with 20,000 fans in the stands now from my public health colleagues or saying that's not That's not my go. Well, Wait a minute. Last week, the mayor of D. C approved permit for 50,000 people to attend that rally on the Capitol Mall West Variety. And so if 50,000 people could be out there on the mall owner wasn't much social distancing. Why wouldn't we consider 20,000 people in a stadium that holds 100,000? You know, I don't have the answer to that. I'm just asking the question well, and I know every night on the local news here at the University of Texas football teams out there practicing and they're planning on going ahead and a week. From tonight. The NFL is scheduled to start Ah, let me ask you a bit about the Trump Administration decision not to join the global effort to develop and manufacture and equitably distribute. A Corona virus vaccine. The rationale given was that it was connected to the W H O with which we've had some difficulties, particularly the strong connections between the W H O leadership. And the government of China your thoughts about the decision. It's tough when I'm glad I wasn't a whole minute. I understand why the Trump administration is doing that. The problem is, if the companies in the US are not the first really come up with a very effective vaccine and say it's companies other than that outside the United States. That means we probably won't get it. So I kind of look at this from a national security perspective. I wish there were some sort of compromise they could have come up with, because, like her flu vaccines, many years we get a lot of large percentage for flu vaccine from Australia and Canada. And if we tell them we're not going to play in your game. What happens if they're the ones that have the best vaccine? The soonest? I'm not sure about the national security implications of that. South Korea there. Ah, ah, approach of this entire pandemic I gather it has been among the more effective. Yeah, I mean, as of last week, South Korea's had 326 deaths. Out of 52 million people were having that's worth repeating. It's late at night. For those who weren't paying attention. How many deaths out of a country of 53 million people? That is to say more people in linen live in California? How many deaths 326 And I will also tell you we don't have to go all the way halfway around the world. Let's just go to Canada and look at British Columbia. Which is has about the population of Massachusetts. And British Columbia has had 1/12 of the covert death. Massachusetts What is South Korea and British Columbia doing? That we're not. I think people need their answer Those questions. People who are in very senior positions in our government at federal state local level I'd like to know. And what is that they're doing that is so much more effective than what we're doing. I don't have the answer that, but I sure would like to know. More to come Stay with us 186650, Jimbo 1866505 or 6 to 6 as we look for that vaccine and the silver bullet that we think it's going.

"Of it, Jim Bohannon show. Jim Bohannon, Joe 186650 Jimbo, with Greg Gutfeld, New York Times Best selling author host of Greg Gutfeld Show co host of the five on Fox News, author of the Plus published by Threshold editions. And let's just get the confession out of the way first here right in the introduction to the book here, it came to me that my next book that is this one would be one containing advice about solving the crap that's destroying all of US horror of horrors. I would write a self help book. I felt gross all over. Why? Well, I don't like self help books because I don't like the people who write them. I know for a fact that the writers will give advice are generally severely screwed up people because I was one of them. Go ahead, confess. Yes, my 1st 2 jobs, actually, Yeah, my first real writing jobs, one with a prevention Health magazine, And then I became editor of Men's Health magazine. I worked there for about 10 years of these places. I dispense advice as a guy in my mid twenties and thirties. Older people, which should have been the reverse. Young people should be telling older people howto live, but that's what I was doing. I was giving health and diet advice. I was in good shape, but I was also in my big twenties, which meant I was also staying out late. Going to parties being kind of wild, So it was a bit hypocritical. I had no wisdom to dispense. So now I'm on the other side of the coin on the other side of 50. It's like Make sense now for me to dispense advice. Well, at the very least, that you're getting paid for it. And that's a good thing. Yes, yes, Very good explained if you would the concept of the Plus versus minus because I'm seriously re read. I've read this book once I'm going to read it again, and I'm going to try to derive from its himself help. Well, here's the deal. I decided, ask myself in every decision that I make. Will that decision be a plus or a minus? So it's almost like playing a video game. And I was doing this because I was trying to overcome negative negative actions like going on Twitter, reading something bad and responding or responding rudely to a packed store on E mail or saying something in a meeting. Why do I engage in negative behavior when I know it? Going to be a minus later. It's the equivalent of drinking and knowing you're gonna have a hangover but drinking anyway, so I decided to do this test before every decision. I would go plus or minus What I was doing. It sounds really obvious through a lot of people. But for today, one thing that's missing is impulse control. What I was really doing was reinventing away. Q To foster and kind of achieved daily, almost instantaneous impulse control. So you don't do stupid stuff. And I guess I need that because I've been doing a lot of stupid stuff. All right now that as regards the mob mentality and then some calls for Greg Gutfeld, but this says a lot right here. A pearl of wisdom from the book The Plus, It's a fact that you can ruin me and I can probably ruin you were all centers. We make mistakes, But in this day and age, good heavens, I mean, we seem to have forgotten the benefits of tar and feathers. Yeah, it's a, uh it's the bar is lower. Or a mob. You don't have to go down to the hardware store and buy, you know. Ah, Pitchfork. You could just go on Twitter. 50 people could feel like 50,000 and I get Jim Bohannon off the air because I didn't like what he said. And we can go to your advertisers and try to destroy you. That's what the reality is now. The solution to that is a mutually assured destruction some becomes after May I could go after you that tends to work. But the other aspect a better aspect, in my view is to share the risk that whenever you see somebody under attack, it's up to you to side with the person who was the target of the mob and resist any temptation to join a mob. Even if the person they're targeting Might be wrong and it's somebody you don't like. I tend to defend everybody who was outnumbered just by that that natural instinct to want to defend them. And who says, we don't make progress? After all, the Spanish Inquisition did not have nearly the sense of irony. Okay? I got some questions and comments for a Greg Gutfeld. His new book is The Plus. It is a hoot as though we say in in literary circles, And here's a call from Joe in the Topeka, Kansas to join this next. Hello, Joe. Hey, how you doing? Where? Well, thank you. So I have a question. I know that, uh, somebody was talking about the vice president picked earlier. So how do you, uh, Equate that with here with your book and how you Handle problems on a higher love. I would say that you have to become incredibly aware of what's going on in why I think politically. You should, uh, I'm very I'm very concerned about getting too involved politically office. I often think That is taking too much out of our lives. No, I think the decision for president while is the serious one. It's not a devastating one. I think we've learned that the country is bigger than the people that run it. I'm hoping that's the case. I also think when I look at a job I I have. I have a realistic notion about the amount of power he's goingto have. I mean, I do not think That he is going to be in charge on I'm not and I have no idea the predictions of whether he will even win or not. I think that Trump supporters remain very quiet. Because they often get a lot of heat when they talk about it, So I think to be a plus, You gotta respect people's politics. You got to reduce the polarisation or their opinions. A lot of people are going to disagree with you. And just because somebody's on a different political team doesn't make them evil. It's not a book. It's not a moral choice. For some people. Is there a team sport being a Democrat or Republican? But you always paint the other side is evil will always end in sorrow for both sides. And does your vote for president really have as much impact on your life as let's say your choice of a living room recliner? I mean, really? I mean, it's sad, but it's true. Linda in Champagne, Illinois for Greg Gutfeld, author of The Plus I, Linda. Why you think I'm gonna love this book? You are very serious. I I did not go past a single page without laughing out loud, at least once. I mean, I sneer itself helped books and this one sounds fun. Yeah, the thing I called about those camel Harris and I think I know the plot of this And the plot is she's not qualified. Be president because she's not a citizen, not Sullivan. And so she wasn't born here and well, are you sure? Yeah, sure. I think I think that calls for some fact checking thing is, I read the things that are sent to me on Facebook and Twitter, and they have the same thing. She wasn't born here. She was a border. I think we would have known this. I think it would have been up front like at the start. Remember, John McCain was born in Panama. That didn't matter. So maybe there's a weird exception. But I'm gonna tell you right now. I haven't heard this except in the kind of the The I heard this from a friend kind of thing. I mean, did you actually read this means that she was born in Oakland, California supposed He was not her parents weren't And I mean that. That the parents have to be citizens. Wait, and parents now known parents don't have to be. No, I think that's not. I think we've been around this and I think that's not right. Well, I'm sure we'll be hearing more about this before. This is over. But, yeah, if you're born in the United States, your citizen Yeah. I mean, that's that's the way it is. You may argue. That's the whole thing about anchor babies came from weird, but it's true in Oakland. In Oakland, California proof Otherwise, I would love to hear it exactly that you're trafficking on an opinion that you heard from somebody else. Yeah, But if you have proof, he sure to contact Greg Fox News and me at Westwood one and the Republican National Committee in Washington, D. C. Here's Lian, Ozark, Missouri, highly Hi. Thank you for taking my call. I've had a thought for a while. Now, Since Biden has been, you know, nominated to run. Well, he's about to be nominated to run, guys. Okay?.

"It, Jim Bohannon show Welcome back to Jimbo had a chilled 186 expire. Bo Jimbo 1866505 or 6 to 6, this time around the two houses of Congress since the American public in its wisdom chose to vote, the straight paralysis ticket. And put the Republicans in charge of the Senate of the Democrats in charge of the house and all of you who have voted that way. You've got no basis for whining. You created the problem. You can't make up your mind. You're part of the problem. But be that as it may, the president has now acted as we take some calls. We'll let me before we get into the details of everything that he's done or tried to do. Let's say you were the president and you had the inherent limitations of executive orders. What would you have done differently than what he did. Granted, it probably is inadequate and not what Congress could have and should have done But But, ah, the any act as well as he could have I here. Here's what surprises me. I did not see the president, um the other way he could have played it. Look in hindsight. If this breaks the law, Jim, it will look like a brilliant bit of political move. Brilliant statesmanship, but the other way I think he could have played it in earlier would have been to step up. And lean on, not the Democrats so much bling on the Republicans. And with that kind of pressure. I think there might have been a breakthrough earlier before the positions were so hardened. I mean, the Congress came back. I'm turning. It was July 20th. From its first summer. You know, Recent Remember, kindergartners and Congress are the only people that get recess anymore, But they came back July 20th. And they knew that on August 1st July 30th the stimulus the extended federal unemployment benefits I should say would end. So that was 10 days Now we're 10 days, father along I think the statesmanlike thing for any president who have done would have been to lean on his own party a little bit and become more actively involved in coming to some kind of compromise. So, but this was the way It's been played. Let me just make three quick points here. First of all the unemployment they were going to compromise on $400 anyway, the president decided to use Hurricane disaster relief fund and the way that disaster relief fund work legally is that the government commits a portion and the states must commit a portion, which is why you heard him say. I'm gonna give you $400 will actually 300 the States will have to chip in with 100. And then everybody said that the state don't really have enough money to do that. I mean, part of this whole thing was originally according to the Democrats give money to the states, So that was their position. So the president and tried to walk that back and say, Well, they could apply, and maybe we'll give him all $400 legally. He can't do that. If he's using the disaster relief fund, he can't create funds only Congress can, but he can appropriate that disaster relief fund but only on a shared basis. That's number one. Distant long moratorium. He was well within his rights to extend and for millions of Americans. Same. I've always said that the government is now borrowing for 10 years and 1/2 of 1% that millions of people, every paying student loans that rates of eight and nine and 10%. That's another story cycle We already talked about. It's telling people who already have jobs that they're going to get a tax break. Number one and number two. It does impact Social Security. And then this whole discussion. There wasn't a moratorium on evictions. From federally financed property that expired at the end of July. Also, and the president made it look like in what he said. And I had to look into this that there was going to be a continued moratorium on evictions and foreclosures. But in fact, he just said, I'm going to talk to my housing people and make sure that they do something about these evictions and foreclosures, so it didn't get everybody wound up. It's going to get all our callers wound up is not about whether he was right or wrong. He there's some stuff. Maybe he can do legally. I don't want to challenge that in court. That's not where our attention should be focused. It should be focused on not only the things he did, but all the things that were left undone. Stimulus payments shouldn't be again should be for the same people, more people, fewer people the same amount of money. That's a week that Congress to be doing and programs for businesses. Do we want to rescue the airlines? That's a legitimate will know that simile areas that that you could look at some of the previous things that they have. The Democrats have put into this catch All Santa Claus package..

"Of it Jim Bohannon show because of the economic policies that we have put into place over the last three years we have the greatest economy anywhere in the world by far are banks and financial institutions are fully capitalized and incredibly strong our unemployment is at a historical low this vast economic prosperity gives us flexibility reserves and resources to handle any threat that comes our way president drop of his remarks earlier this evening and before we're done tonight will hear those remarks again in full by the way Kim calls in from shields Michigan the the good evening Kim yeah thank you sure yeah I wanna say no more I hear president trump more proud I yeah I I am of him he just he needs to you know what to do like she don't we need to do that and he he stepped right up to the plate and the more you know the more he makes me proud and I found out why this call is bragging Italy today I read a story on my phone and it said that Italy has a lot of Chinese workers that transient back and forth I think they said something about the garment industry are thought but I wondered why would easily have thrown more it would be so fast there but they have a lot of Chinese people that travel back and forth and that's why apparently why it's so bad and a lot of countries are doing that you know restricting travel and I'll tell you that after the fact they did did did do it as fast as we did yeah yeah the Chinese either most of us are not aware of of a large Chinese presence in Italy I know the Italy certainly has an awful lot of the of of the Islamic migrants from North Africa and I know that Africa itself the cognitive Africa has probably a hundred thousand Chinese living there I've often wondered if if they have had the impact on the the coronavirus on that card that I I haven't heard anything about the spread of the disease in Africa but as for Chinese of Italy and that's a new one on me Kim yes and I thought the thing that you can only depend on and dated for a couple years now with migrants like you sent for me and all those places Italy I thought that's where family third up there but yeah this was news to me they thought that they workers working there and then return home I don't know if it's certain times of the year I know they just had new Chinese New Year holiday but you know stop burning just bad and what are the dangers what did they just say he hello how stupid idiots he said if you are in the same boat if he were president and there was this call red X. he wouldn't shut down travel he wouldn't shut down the border any call president trump he told this is even bigger than the last one protected president trump is affecting our country well as far as I'm concerned I agree with you Kim either he's also protect your country but I mean after a while you just you lose count of the number of reasons why Bernie Sanders was immediate Robert of Suffield Ohio next good evening Robert yeah I I think I do think this is overblown for political reasons in my mind and I think he was manufactured in China and I also will say to you that I hope that this resulted in one thing it nothing else we need to go over with that we are making matters manage to keep people alive and very hours back in America well we have here at you know the conditions are probably a thousand times better than China well my concern about things manufactured in China is that we can never depend on China as a reliable source of anything there are people in this country who are such a total prostitutes that they would probably far about the manufacturing of R. M. one tanks or R. F. thirty five fighters to China because it would be cheaper so I concur with you completely this notion of the going always with economic advantage that doesn't mean a lot when you're dealing with countries that are a malignancy all the world body politics so I'm but with you all the way one eight six six five oh Jimbo Barty in Hilton head South Carolina hello Marty I do my friend fine thank you I just think you know the president did a great job people are freaking out even now with it not be in such a major threat I I'm confused as to why people are stepping over toilet paper and paper towels and a grocery stores it blows my mind what we do in blizzards that's what we do during blizzards you know we run to the store we had to the store of bread milk and toilet paper I mean what are you supposed to do with that I mean you know I mean a blizzard of Hilton head South Carolina the snow you know half an inch three quarters of an inch the drifts go and and it's all gone by the next day it so then you have to walk around your call to sack camping outside which is good you got five loaves of bread I mean I've never understood that at dell but I do think that and the president bid doing a great job and not have people panic even though they are anyway because if he panics you can only imagine what's going to happen well yeah he he he I think he has acted very responsibly and not precipitously and certainly the braindead remarks Bernie Sanders about how this is is that a phobia I mean get real yeah I'd Bernice by the course everybody the world is equal and Americans are not one with better than anybody else which is another reason why Bernie Sanders both never ever ever ever be president of the United States back with more in just a moment okay so are you the type of guy the ones look put together but.

"Of it Jim Bohannon show you will have a show as our guest is J. R. young and that this is a website J. A. Y. our young while you Angie dot com he is the founder and president of king operating corporation they look for petroleum in the ground and I'm curious as to what's going to happen the gasoline prices let's say all well let's look ahead through let's say up to Labor Day the labor day okay well I will tell you right now I I don't see much movement until the end of the year and I but I know you asked some of its okay if if I think too short a period of time just give me your estimate on whatever time frame works for you twelve okay in the reason why is because there is three hundred less rigs drilling for oil and gas in the United States today normally there's eleven hundred almost twelve hundred rigs that work and drill for oil and gas and they produce a tremendous amount of oil that may produce twenty five to thirty five thousand barrels of oil the first month and now there's three hundred less rings them a run in one a year ago so what you're gonna see is when the scroll bars comes out and everything's gonna settle down which you will and you have a lot less all of the market what's going to happen is you're going to see prices starting to increase labor data into this year I can see seventy five dollars a barrel easy it is not within the distance from the Middle East or anything but just because of that because of the lack of supply on the market our demand stays strong our demand is strong with this corona viruses coming down we'll come back well now does come back yeah yes you are as well as a win win win we we think of the summertime we think of more driving and therefore gas prices go up is that still a safe rule of thumb it is very broad form the right now you're seeing a lot of the demand global demand coming down because of the the crown of bars and things so I don't know if it catches up by that term it could go up by the summertime but if it is it may stabilise go up a little bit but not until the end of this year we see a big a big job all right now one eight six six five oh Jimbo is our number one eight six six Bible five four six two six so I'm curious about the job the impact of of what you do from from shale oil collection the like getting well and obviously to help the country in terms of energy dependence but I'm wondering do you do that and if it if you don't how has that impacted you well I'll tell you that we have are we going to different prospects in their both jail they're both unconventional is most shale breaking the old mark the prospect we have right now it has a conventional and unconventional to it which means basically that you don't need to be doing the big fracking which pricing just because money drawing of ten thousand foot lateral just think of that per se yeah Jim here if you're two miles from start to finish under the ground and your fracking every two hundred feet of fracking or are you are you setting off an explosion that fractures the the rock I'm not too sure would we we toss around the term fracking very glibly especially for talk show host but that doesn't mean we we know what what is actually going on read ME slated the real simple terms so what we do is we put withdrawal well first with the drill bit we may go out to two miles whatever whatever the the prospect calls for let's say two miles long with a drill bit will bring that drill bit out of the ground it will put hi there hi booze is still in the ground okay it's five and a half inch pipe and it's all the way for two miles and then what you do is you go down and you'll perforate this end bracket in stages what that means is you'll put a perforation going down the hole and you'll go all the way out your two miles to the very end annual perforate the pot then you'll put the shots in the pipe safely say shots in the pipe but I don't know what that means it's a small explosion is putting a perforation in that part okay guys raise your your your perforating that pipe was eight shots per foot for two hundred feet so you're you're perforating the pipe for two hundred feet and then what you do is you take water just water and you throw it down though well bore and you'll put it down so fast the little break open the formation there was what I mean by that is is breaking open the form like a baseball bat on the windshield or like like concrete because it is hard is hard rock it is not going to produce a list is broken up and so when you frag what you're doing is you're sending water is you know a hundred miles an hour down the well bore and you're breaking up with that formation that makes sense killing of spider web no no he does again again as I say to me it was just two syllables fracking allegedly tell me a lot but now I know I have a better understanding of it yeah in this union minister to order three yeah and then you'll you'll want to water down your struggle two hundred free and then you'll put a plug their Nicolas sandy and afterwards you put a lot of say in the end because what you want to do is have the essay and open up the pores and straight thank you the pores open and then you put a status is more so the rocker we talking about boards of the pipe wars in Iraq boys on the rock okay yeah because you want it you want to keep it uses this car uses a profit if you will okay now we're coming up on a breaker that doesn't move so we're gonna go back and pick up the the tale of how fracking is accomplished in some of the other questions that come from that with J. R. young back in a moment loading up on things from Walmart yeah I use my new Capital One Walmart rewards card it is unlimited five percent back on everything I buy from Walmart online see what's five percent back five percent what.

"Five oh five four six two six online by this is Jim Bohannon show dot com you can follow me on Twitter at Jimbo talks well it has happened just who according to the script on this past day Friday the house Judiciary Committee voted on very partisan lines to send two articles of impeachment against president trump to the full house but he does the fourth time in history that a president has faced such a move with more here's Sarah Marie following a bitter debate and a party line vote Donald Trump now faces two articles of impeachment before the full house of representatives the question now is an article one of the resolution impeaching president Donald J. trump for abusing its powers the clerk will call the roll rats insisting transactions more than met the constitutional threshold of high crimes and misdemeanors hi Mister Raskin votes I Mister eyeball hi Mister I have all those I missed Deming's by Republicans loudly voiced their objections Mr Gomer I will just know is every member we voted who wishes to vote as for German out man Carl record I was a gentleman recorded Mr grammar your record as now now I want to make sure the committee approved an article for abuse of power arguing the president pressured Ukraine to investigate his political rival by withholding a White House meeting and US security aide Mister chairman there are twenty three eyes and seventeen knows the articles agreed to question now is an article two of the resolution impeaching president Donald J. trump for obstructing Congress approved the second article for obstructing the investigation into trump's misconduct Mister chairman there are twenty three eyes and seventeen knows your articles agreed to resolution as amended resorted reported favorably to the house this final vote exposing partisan tensions I give notice of intent to file to sending these the notice is heard without objection the committee is adjourned as the top Republican on the committee stormed out of the two party line vote with president trump another step closer to being the third US president ever to be impeached today is a solemn and said today for the third time in a little over a century and a half the house Judiciary Committee has voted articles of impeachment against the president for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress the house will act expeditiously proceedings came on the heels of a contentious committee debate that stretched past eleven PM on Thursday house judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler shopped his colleagues by abruptly pausing the marathon session and delaying votes it is now very late at night I want the members on both sides of the aisle to think about what has happened over these last two days and to search their consciences before we cast a final votes therefore the committee will now stand in recess until tomorrow morning at ten AM Mr you chose not to consult the ranking member on the schedule issue of this magnitude so typical this is the cat in the hat this is the kangaroo court they were talking about the move prompted howls of protest from Republicans this was the most bush league thing I have sleep forever this committee has lost all of the old Democrats deemed it necessary and accused Republicans of trying to force Democrats to vote on articles of impeachment in the dark of night after a vote on the floor it will be up to the Senate to decide when whether one of to remove fires the or president a goal from the case edge of your and neighborhood Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is already valley that won't happen or an we earthquake all know how it's going is destroying on buildings there's no chance the president's going to be removed from office when a tornado is tearing and through so town here we stand with the full house expected to hold that vote or hurricane on the articles strikes of impeachment sometime this coming week the president will or is then the be best impeached time perhaps I mean there's no question about that today at this stage it they've during gone way a disaster past the point you may of not ever be able to stay stopping in touch short with your family or friends and as easily as holding you think let's say a vote of censure and it's not always as the simple Senate as bill using holds your a cell trial phone and that that's the constitution one now does is require the time a two to thirds take action vote to convict and remove him from office now as we learned earlier tonight from one of our guests because this requires a two thirds vote of those present you would think of course of nobody would be absent for something like this it might be convenient for some to be absent we'll see if that plays into it nonetheless the threshold of two thirds of those on hand seems a extremely high and the highly unlikely that they would ever get anywhere near that so well with that the as a prologue go we will entertain that your thoughts it is a remarkable the extent to which this was followed the script you almost want someone to do something bizarre I don't know put on Groucho glasses or something it has been so utterly completely predictable that maybe it's not just the the sense of of the dramatic in me but again if the patches been chosen and we will we will follow the path as it unfolds one eight six six five oh Jimbo our number one eight six six five oh five four six two six and this is about is a cut and dried as it could get of course up to this point can there be room for any surprises at this juncture I would think not it certainly it would not I suppose technically be too late for Nancy Pelosi to say hold on we'll just have a vote no censure since the Republicans are so partisan that they would never listen to our evidence of vote to convict in the Senate trial where they have a majority that could conceivably happen to be but now you're talking about pretty much out of left field type of of of highly speculative unlikely events what we're talking about here now is a script that will be followed right to and including messing with the Democrats in the presidential campaign deserve several Democrats of course in the Senate who would like to become president and of course there's the issue of the Democrats Democrats in the house who are from districts carried by Donald Trump in twenty sixteen thirty one house Democrats are in districts where the voters for some reason chose to vote for the Democrat in twenty eighteen but Donald Trump in twenty sixteen out of a vote how many of them will get a free pass from Nancy Pelosi to vote no on impeachment to try and help her keep our majority that gives her the extra fifty grand a year that she makes for being speaker one eight six six five oh Jimbo one eight six six five oh five four six two six as a the process rolls along and again as I say just a as an interested observer it would be kind of I suppose it or to any of somebody did something that deviated from the script one eight six six five oh Jimbo one eight six six five oh five four six two six let's go to north Platte Nebraska where Deanna is up tonight hello Deanna hello yes you're on the radio go right ahead while I was working radio and I thought it was a real tragedy that they're trying to do this to the president because I think it's ridiculous because the man has done a lot of good things and I can't understand why they're trying to you know I'm sure if his adorning conceit dating him any kind of respect any kind dignity or anything because to me is just totally rude and uncalled for they could discuss the did something so why be so eager to get rid of the man I think you can is a lot more good stuff about it well certainly there were a lot of good things about that I think he did and it's hard to argue of course with the expanded economy let's say that he had that had dad had really done an impeachable offense and I am of the opinion that he has not had he actually performed an impeachable offense than the fact that he helped the economy and cut government red tape of the light would hardly be a reason for keeping in that office doing got good works is not enough to to avoid punishment for a genuine transgression of in fact that it happened I mean the al Capone's gang often provided coal and food for some of the poor sections of Chicago but that doesn't overlook the people they murdered and again as I say if if there had been an actual case against Donald Trump that I don't know that the argument that he did good works would be sufficient but the problem is of course that they don't have a case of an impeachable offense they just don't have one they haven't presented one that is out with a guy like a lot of us thought along the way you know that they're waiting they got something they couldn't go this far without having something and we kept waiting and we got to the mall a report nothing got through the Adam Schiff hearings of the intelligence committee nothing got through the Nadler hearings before the Judiciary Committee nothing it's not quite clear that it's very unlikely that they've got some big bomb shell out there that they're going to drop on the the Senate trial for one thing if it were that big a bomb shell it would have been leaked by now they just don't have anything they don't like him up for a variety of reasons they're like anybody who would take on the deep state they don't like anybody who would hold our March toward big government they don't like anybody who has a general conservative principles and of course his personality only exacerbates things but well I don't think that a president let's say Mike pence would have generated probably a call for impeachment but certainly he would have faced terrible opposition from those who simply feel that any conservative is just completely utterly wrong and that is at the core the liberal view point is that we really are deplorable and that we just don't belong in the position of running our own affairs because were so bad at it that's really the core belief here Deanna so again as I've noted before the program it's not that the Democrats want to impeach delta because they don't like him is because they really really really really don't like him and that is nothing more that a gross national temper tantrum back with.

"The morning is Jim Bohannon has a closer look at the situation in China the situation seems to be getting more critical around Hong Kong as a Chinese paramilitary forces are apparently prepared to go and they have mastered they are apparently ready tactically are they ready and in terms of actually making the decision to cross over to start cracking heads well let's get the view of Jim antel here's the politics editor at the Washington examiner their website is their name Washington examiner dot com I'm not quite sure just what is holding the Chinese back from a leading Hong Kong know who calls the shots in that city and that of course is Beijing pretty much I think as much as they want to well I think they are already starting to do things to demonstrate that they call the shots thank the reluctance to have a sort of Tiananmen Square style cracked down the middle which people are are are murdered I think stems from a fear of capital flight from from Hong Kong fear of a loss of investment opportunities of course it would be a bad public relations for China has been willing to act in the face of those things in the past that I suppose if they think that that is their last option they'll take it I said I can say that they might not want to to pull a Tiananmen Square but they would one even the last to have in the example of the the Chinese government's willingness to accept political dissent and I would have to think the may may have learned a lesson from Tiananmen Square they became the gang that that couldn't dictate straight if you will right and and it's not as though anybody's going to really do anything although be some nasty diplomatic notes and someone will convene a session of the United Nations Security Council blah blah blah maybe the United States will raise a terror for two with that'll eventually go back down frankly I think the Chinese are in the driver's seat because the world totally lacks the will to do anything I mean you have statements like this for the government of Germany we know China as a responsible actor on the world stage with whom we work well together in many areas China lies cheats steals they have broken virtually every agreement they signed since they left behind bout say two zero of paranoia they manipulate their currency of the steal intellectual property I cannot for the life of me imagine why anybody would think that they are responsible actor writer this whole mix system idea that you would be able to preserve the kind of economic and political freedom that it existed in Hong Kong as a British colony once it was under communist Chinese control that was never really very plausible now China has allowed the Hong Kong system ought to be very different from their own so they can continue to reap the economic benefits of that much as they have conducted some reforms on mainland China itself that allows the Communist Party to remain firmly in control but the V. eight from communist economics enough to get some benefits of a market economy and get some prosperity at least for the politically powerful this is going to potentially upset some of that delicate balance and we haven't seen the sort of political liberalization but people hoped would follow economic liberalization it is a it received a note again the the old Soviet Union tried to liberalize the politically to rescue marches economics and it fell apart China so far by tossing out Marxist economics not completely but at least to a certain extent allowing millionaires to drive around Shanghai they've been able to maintain the authoritarian political rule something similar is operating in Vietnam and does some say Cuba may be headed in that direction is that some kind of viable a wave of the future for despotism it certainly what countries like China are trying to do and it is so far worked well enough that I think that other countries could emulate a there it is currently the leading arrival of model of governance in opposition to the United States and the west you know you do have to wonder if a longer term it becomes sustainable if it becomes problematic to try to balance for broadening prosperity through allow you a little bit more free markets with a firm control of the Communist Party so far though the results have been better for the communists than the McGill Gorbachev's attempts of political liberalization in order to to say of communist economics this this mix at least for now seems to work better for the communists Jim Adil politics editor.

"Jim Bohannon show as we're looking at the jussie smollet case of again charges being dropped at least at the local level. The FBI investigating. The situation. We'll see how much the feds become involved in this and Omar Khadr at our guest is an attorney former prosecutor candidate for congress. And I've heard talk that does is so adamant about his his innocence nunnery. What are you an apology? But then he might actually file a suit from a legal point of view wouldn't filing a suit open up the story to the same discovery that you mentioned earlier. It would be very bad idea. I cannot conceive of a situation where he would do that. I can't conceive a situation where? Do that. Yeah. A prosecutor Kim FOX saying that she welcomes an outside review how she and the fixed tourneys office handled the small case and again today explicitly stating that he was not found innocent. He was not exonerated. And the prosecutors standing behind the charges a lot of confidence in what they're saying. How can you stand behind charges and with a straight face drop the charges? I mean, that's kinda bizarre. It's not as though the Chicago Justice system is is so cramped up that they are incapable of pursuing a case like this. In other words, some lame excuse made by someone from that office right after the decision was made that we have to focus on on crimes of violence, and we don't feel the jussie smollet constitutes a threat to residents of Chicago that that was almost as lame as the decision to to drop the charges again. I've never heard a sufficient reason to drop the charges, especially given the adamant. Comments made. I, of course, by the police superintendent amid later he was joined, of course, by by mayor Rahm Emanuel hardly I would say a mouthpiece for for conservative America. So again, I don't buy. I just don't understand this, frankly. Well, just today, Ken, FOX. All the little in the public and put it in writing that there might have been some evidence Sherry issues of that. Or have some difficulty to obtain a conviction? I don't know why. Or only hearing this. On at the end of the day. There's no case that is is easy. I think a lot of attorneys out there understand that no cases, easy, all but she didn't welcome outside review. Issue of why this matters is because it's not just because an interesting story plot twists, and it seems to have the American public glued to their TV about it. But this had a potential profound consequences and not just creating division among people in the city amplifying division among American people in our country. It could have motivated further crimes they could have hardened the sensor hate on from two different sides. And let to obviously a worse situation on rates. From Los Angeles. And so all in Los Angeles and other parts of southern California racial tensions on get to a certain point. They can really boil over and this is really serious business. So all just was extremely reckless. Without on something that essentially during this had some serious tenfold to equally. Cargo obviously, the go online any divisions between people in America. And it could have spun off into any number. Also for the residents, I suppose it could have one eight six six five zero JIMBO one eight six six five zero five four six two six we come now to the the notion of the nomination by the individual CPI image awards of smaller for best supporting actor in a television drama, which of course, we've already had some calls for that to be withdrawn as far as the ACP has not made any move in that direction your thoughts about that. Really risky bad idea. Denomination or to drop it. The nomination. I mean, this should not have been something that was done or learning things every single day. If anyone has any common sense, I'm looking for another twist were more information somehow comes out all the smaller. It's a bad idea. This is someone who everyone in a position of authority, everyone who has seen evidence against form or being so adamant that he committed what is being alleged. I mean, part of the filed that was always public says quote on the investigation revealed a plan was formulated input into play by smollet conduct staged into all. Equal service behind Savante who house. Prosecutors everyone who's been the evidence saying that. Stay with us. More to come with our guest, Omar Khadr at attorney former prosecutor, and we're looking at the jussie smollet case revisited back in a moment. It.

"Welcome back to the Jim Bohannon show as we talk about the abrupt ending of the second Kim, Trump summit this one in Hanoi. Vietnam with Ivan eland senior fellow at the independent institute. And the North Korean reaction is interesting on the one hand the North Koreans are disputing the US account that. North Korea had demanded all. Sanctions be lifted and North Korea says that they asked for only partial sanctions relief in exchange for shutting down their main nuclear complex. And then they go on to say that the United States has squandered an opportunity for a nuclear deal and may not get another chance. Now that happened this past morning at three twenty five AM our time, however by seven thirty AM. Friday time seven thirty PM this evening. The North Korean news agency of saying that Trump and Kim had a constructive and candidate exchange of views and agreed to keep in close touch for the nuclear ization of the Korean peninsula and the development of of bilateral relations. So I'm not sure which version the we believe Ivan. Well, I'm not sure either they they seem to be contradictory. In fact, they are contradictory and posturing who knows what the real situation is. I think those leaders are trying to keep the door open for future negotiations. I think there will be real question has always been well, well, the North Koreans ever agree to get rid of their nuclear program. They've seen. Other leaders. Be without nuclear weapons. Or who gave up their nuclear programs be taken out. And also they like it for prestige value. It's really the only thing they puts them on the map. I mean, they're dirt poor communist country Stalinist communist country, and they really have nothing going for the other than their nuclear program and nipples and so. You know this but security and considerations in prestige on the world stage. That they're probably not going to get rid of their nuclear weapons. But they could you know, I mean Trump I think it's useful that he's negotiating with it because he could get some sort of limit. And if they did shut down there. Material which is what you're talking about are for partial sanctions relief, if they could work out some sort of a deal that that would be something that would be a step forward. It would be a step forward. I agree with your assessment. It is hard for me to imagine. What could possibly convince the North Koreans to totally denuclearize unless the United States is so successful with sanctions that the North Korean economy is on the verge of total collapse. I mean when you have significant portions of your country starving, anyway, I'm not even sure what what constitutes total collapsed. And and that the Chinese would not agree to bail them out. That's the only way in other words back to the wall. That's the only way I see them ever making such an agreement now that the Chinese have the potential to bail about will lay. Well, I think they have an incentive to bail them out because they don't want a lot of refugees flooring. And they also don't want. Germany type situation after the Cold War where that were South Korea takes over North Korea and puts US intelligence that's not right on their border. They're very sensitive as we sound out in the Korean war. They're very sensitive about how stall or potentially hostile countries on there right on their border. So. You know, it's I doubt it I think they would probably Dale. North korea. I think there are already doing it. I think there there are one disadvantage Russia and China to major people. There's two major countries that could bail north three out have either sanctions because of these talks remember when our Kim done all these tests Chinese actually stepped up and started putting some meaningful sanctions on North Korea. But I think that they used off on the on the on the implementation of those now as has Russia. So I think that's not gonna happen. You know, I understand part of why the Chinese back the North Koreans. Keep a Burr under article Sam, saddle, okay? Not a terribly constructive viewpoint. But I understand it. As for the the notion of a threat from South Korea. What will a unified Korea do a unified Korea would trade like the daylights with the Chinese? It wouldn't be sending any troops that demand jury. I mean, that's that's nonsense. They would even think of it, and they wouldn't get anywhere. If they did try it. And then the the final point about all those refugees. Are you're kidding me. There's the Yellow River and the Chinese people's army of for Pete's sake. I or the People's Liberation Army. I guess as they call it. I think those would be quite sufficient to stop any flooded refugees. I mean, I just don't understand why those are are significant factors. Well, I mean, you have to ask the Chinese, I guess, but certainly. Really china. North Korea's main ally into Lahser extent Russia, so that you have the support of the Chinese and the Chinese. The Chinese even trade with South Korea. A lot and the Chinese are more even-handed than they used to be because they realize that North Korea is there a he's actually Kim and sort of a pain in the rear for the for the Chinese because. And there are positive aspects. As I mentioned that it can kind of keep the US off balance. But of course, you know, Kim also as nuclear weapons on their border, and, you know, sometimes communist states get into into a like, they did nine hundred sixty nine between the US and China. So it's not a completely clear that China North Korea will always be friends. But right now, China's really the lifeline for North Korea. And you know, it's kind of perplexing to the west. But that's the way it is. And I think we like I say the trade situation where China weakens our hand getting Chinese to do something. Or if they do something they're gonna roll it in to the trade. You know, they're gonna roll it into the trade negotiations and say, well, we're not going to give you this time trade because well agree to do something with North Korea. So the the trade war with China. We this is not a really good time to approach China with help for to get help from. From them on North Korea. All.

"Back to Jim Bohannon show. We already knew the great things were happening back. Then shots heard round the world. Indeed that Lexington and concord now Brad Meltzer with Josh Mench has written the first conspiracy. And we go to late September seventeen seventy five and one of the top generals for Washington Faneuil greed brings to him Godfrey winwood a Baker from Newport Rhode Island best known for win woods butter biscuits. Okay. That's an auspicious beginning. And what does Mr. win would have to say to the commander of American troops? Are you there? Sorry you faded. I couldn't even get what you said. I'm sorry that I didn't realize I had faded out. I was simply I gave the little introduction there. I'll just repeated says I'm not sure what part you heard. But one of Washington's top generals Nathaniel Greene brings to Washington. This was in late September seventeen seventy five Godfrey winwood a Baker from Newport, Rhode Island whose main claim to fame was win woods butter biscuits said my question was with that auspicious beginning of what did Mr. win would have to say a new recipe for the the mess hall for the American forces. Well, you know, it depends. What you believe in the story, you're asking about the poison peas. The letter, right? That that that was that had been he had been asked to to deliver that this win would have. Yes, I'm sorry. I actually meant another part of the different story. Okay. This is an incredible letter that that gets lost through history that we were able to one of the ones who are able to find is. Gosh, I don't even wanna ruin the part of the book. What you to ruin anything? But suffice it to say. The secret coded letter. Yes, that's what I'm talking about. I'm trying to think about a telephone without ruining it. But basically there is no there's a I'll say it this way because it is one of the great stories in there. I love you you pull out my favorite parts. He. It's a letter that they realize and it also comes we're leaving out the best part with with a lady of the night. Let's just say, and and she's the one who they discover is carrying this letter who she swears it's for someone else. But there's a secret message in this letter. And I don't wanna ruin what the message is. No, no need that. You should do. Suffice. It to say is through this rather odd method. I guess that we could say that the general Washington, I learned that something was amiss. Yeah. And that's what happens is in this moment. And this is the key part because I don't wanna ruin that that scene. I don't want you to run anything. But one of the things that you realize is you need he they realized that secret code in this letter, but. There's no codebreakers. They look around. And again, imagine the CIA today without anyone doing, you know, code breaking. And they realize they we need to call Boston. We need to get people who can break these codes, which they sign what they're building in that moment is they're building as we were talking about America's first counterintelligence agency because they're starting to see all the parts you need when you build a counterintelligence agency. It's not, you know, having having a great army is a wonderful thing. That means you have a great offense. But what George Washington learns when he receives this letter, and he sees that some of his own men may have turned on him and someone close to him in this moment may have turned on him. Is he realized you don't just need a great offense. You need a great defense. And you start to see him starting to slowly put together, you know, we all see George Washington as a finished product the man who's on the dollar Bill at one of the most recognized people that is part of American history. But oddly, we know the least about him, and we all see we always seem at the end of the game. You know when when he's president. But this is the moment where he's first figuring it out. And we must remember that that although he did have a semi distinguished military career. But in fact, he made a lot of blunders when he was with the the British the French and Indian war and those who who criticized his choice to be commander of American forces. They had a case to make that before. And of course, the beginning of the war. He lost battle after battle after battle after battle. Finally, of course coming out on top. But I guess point we need to make is that he was not a God descended from Mount Olympus. And he was as you say a work in progress. And I think that that's an important one of the things we deal within the book is exactly that is. You know, we love to always see him as the greatest general. But the truth is we were as divided as we are today right now. What you know, we love to tell the story that you know, we came together, and we held hands. We dreamed the great dream of democracy in America was born. But as I said, you know, back then in seventeen seventy six at the start of the war. You could see that. There were nearly as many loyalists on the British side as there were on the American side. We're just on the fence who really weren't that involved. I it's no different than today. There are people who are on the conservative side people on the so-called liberal side, and people who are just indifferent. Who just felt like, you know, we don't need to make a big deal. It's just make a better trade deal with the king and get better. We'll get better rates on our on our taxes, and it's fine. And and what's amazing is it was the same in our military. Washington's army wasn't you know, wasn't unify. We didn't have the same uniform. The people the regiments from Connecticut where something different than the ones from Massachusetts than different than the ones from Virginia. In fact, one of my favorite scenes in the book is you see Harvard yard, and there's this moment where the regiment from Massachusetts is meeting the regiment from Virginia and the Virginians where these kind of fairly uniform at which point the they're made fun of and a fight breaks out in the regiments are fighting with each other and George Washington riding on his horse grabbed them both by the throat. And is basically shaking them and say, listen, why don't fight with each other? We're on the same team. And Jim if ever there were a metaphor for where we are today. There it is. He was a muscular six three people need to remember the back then that made him a giant. He was also the only person at the second continental congress who showed up in a military uniform. Yeah. So now, you have this six three guy. They're looking for the commander of the military. And hey, guys what what about that guy over? There happens to be wearing the only one in fact in a military uniform. So he knows exactly what he's doing that that makes an impression. But what I was taken by is that when they tell him when they go to tell him that he's won he's actually left the room and his first response is I don't think I'm going to be up to this task. He's is a moment of humility. And when it all comes to me from when George Washington as a kid he used to write down these rules of civility to live by and they were wonderful roles. They were you know, almost absurd. Sometimes don't spit while you're talking to someone don't pick your teeth in public all things we should all learn. But the ones that they were all. Rules about being generous and about being humble and about being modest and he used those rules for the rest of his life used to copy them as a kid over and over and over. But those were the rules live by grew. I want to take a call here from Brian and Ozark Missouri on the Jim Bohannon show with Brad Meltzer, author of the first conspiracy. Good evening, Brian. Jimbo. Guest. Sure. I'm retired military, and I was talk while I was hitting the army. Two six dollars Gerald ever in the army, George Washington six star. I don't know that anyone ever had six stars. That's why I'm saying George Washington was the first one and Pershing was the second in his honorary. I guess knows. Where's he is fixed on Jerrell, I personally unaware that anybody ever received six stars? But I'll defer to our guest. Yeah. That is news to me. I know it says there is a I know I'm actually even looking up right now, they say he's sort of a six star general. And I actually I was the first I've heard of that too. I did not know that was the case. Yeah. Suffice it to say, yeah, I've never never heard of that either. But in any event, we'll continue our story of of what happened here, and we're not going to give away a good story. But I wanna give an outline of what Brad meltzer's together here. You'll be I conspiracy the secret plot to kill George Washington. When he personally goes to extreme efforts to produce the best of the best of the best people who will. Defend his life. And when you discover a conspiracy within those ranks. Wow. And how close did they come? Well, we'll come back and talk some more about that as well. Brad meltzer. The Jim Bohannon show back in a moment. Stimulate your brain right here. Toxics six fifty. They're willing to throw the election. No. Taking the constitution and putting it in a paper shredder eats.

"Skull-and-crossbones with Jim Bohannon on the offbeat. Resigned. Eric j Dolan is author of black flags blue waters the epoch history of America's most notorious pirate from liver ride publishing. Although we've had pirates was long as we've had boats. The book black flags blue waters focuses on the golden age of piracy from the late sixteen hundreds through about seventeen twenty six golden age is kind of a misnomer. It wasn't golden for the people who are being plundered are right. You are made. And when you hear pirates talk of the spoils of their plunder, they usually referred to a Spanish, silver dollar. It was an eight reality coin. And that's why I called pieces of eight and you may be familiar with something else. Which today we call a quarter of the American dollar silver dollar is based on the Spanish, silver dollar and since the Spanish silver dollar had eight parts or eight ri-als to eight was a quarter. So hence the term to bits. I mean a quarter in America. I'm sure the term bitcoin fits in here somewhere. If y pirates is term pirates of basically people who plunder ships of all nations and steal from them. What they can. And just like robbing a Bank on land in the late sixteen hundred zero early seventeen hundreds being pirate at sea was breaking the law as for another term buccaneer. The word Buchan near comes from these French Dutch and English sort of vagrants who are living in the Caribbean on Hispaniola, which is modern day Haiti and the Dominican Republican they were there hunting hogs and cattle and they used to cure the meat by hanging it on a wooden frame called a boo can over a smoldering fire. So they were called Duquesne ears and the America the English called them Buchan ears, and here, I always thought buccaneer was a high price for corn more. Our next report tomorrow at this time, the offbeat, I'm Jim Bohannon celebrating his eighty sixth.
