Fresh update on " lawrence" discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"At children's hospital in new orleans which is currently filled to capacity will join us next. I wanna be crystal clear about what's happening. In the country. Today we have a pandemic of the bonn vaccinated this tragedy. People are dying and will die. Who don't have to die today. New york city mayor bill de blasio announced that new york will become the first. Us city to require proof of at least one dose of the Vaccine to enter indoor dining facilities fitness centers and indoor entertainment venues in new york city. Sixty six point two percent of people eighteen years or older are fully vaccinated in louisiana. Forty seven point. One percent of people. Eighteen years or older are fully vaccinated. Louisiana has these sixth lowest vaccination rate in the united states. Louisiana has the highest rate in the country of cova cases per one hundred thousand people in the last seven days. Dr mark. Klein is the physician in chief at children's hospital new orleans. I'm a pediatric infectious. Disease specialist by training. I have practiced pediatric infectious diseases for more than thirty five years. I've worked all over the world. I have studied pandemics and worked with in debt epidemic and pandemic diseases for my entire career. And i have to tell you that. I am as worried about our children today as i have ever been this virus that delta variant of covert is every infectious disease specialist epidemiologists. Worst nightmare joining us. Now is dr mark. Klein physician in chief at children's hospital new orleans doctor. Thank you very much for joining us tonight. We really appreciate it. What is the situation at your hospital tonight. I it's it's fully occupied of. How many of the children are there with cova. The think just about every pediatric facility in louisiana is full tonight and while we have a modest number of children admitted with coveted. Severi high intensity. Care that these children demand We currently have eleven in the hospital to our intensive care units. We've had totals as high as twenty over the past week. Which far exceeds the number of children that we had on any given day throughout the entire course of the pandemic up until the just the past week. What are the ages of the children. You're saying suffering with cova. We're seeing the full age range from a several weeks of age too late. Adolescence and everything in between about half of the children are under twelve years of age and therefore not eligible for vaccination just yet and the other half are are adolescence between twelve and seventeen years of age and could be candidates for vaccination. You spoke of a myth that children are immune that that was a belief going around of for a long time and possibly still is are you encountering that among any of the parents who are bringing their children in with kobe we are lawrence over. The first year of the pandemic was said by some that children maybe couldn't contract covert at all. The if they did they wouldn't get sick about six percent of the cases of kobe that were identified in the united states in twenty twenty. Were among children. But today about twenty percent of new cases in louisiana and really across the united states are being caused are occurring among children. Five to seventeen years of age this new variant the delta variant of. Kobe is a game changer. In it seems to have entity for causing severe disease in children and adolescents. So that's what we're dealing with currently a doctor. I know every parent of children watching this right now. Wants to ask you dr. What should i be doing. What should i be doing for my children. Well it's a good question Certainly if the child we're talking about his twelve years of ager older that a person should be accelerated just as every adult should be vaccinated For children under twelve is a little bit more difficult because There's only one group in the united states today that has zero percent rate of vaccination and that's children under the age of twelve. They're not eligible for vaccines and so as a society and as adults. We need to protect them by being vaccinated ourselves. So that we won't transmit the virus young children. And i think if there were ever a time and ever a compelling reason to get vaccination that at time and that reason or right now Beyond that it's the tried and true approaches. Good handwashing social distancing and masking up a governor edwards here in louisiana announced a new statewide mask mandate just yesterday that pertains indoor settings and applies to schools and children as young as five years of age and really that should be modeled across the united states as kids. Go back to school. That's one of the best things we can do in the short term to help ensure that children will not become infected. Dr mark klein. Thank you very much for the work that you do and thank you for sharing this information with us tonight. Thank you lawrence happy to be here. Thank you tonight's last. Word is next with americans in three states. Take advantage of a federally funded program that actually pays people one hundred dollars forgetting vaccinated president biden announced. Today what the united states is doing for the countries in the world where most people don't earn one hundred dollars in a month as of today we have shipped over one hundred ten million doses to sixty five nations according to the united nations. This is more than the donations of all twenty. Four countries have donated any vaccine to other countries including china and russia. All those nations combined vaccinate america it helped vaccinate the world. That's how we're about beat. Distinct have enough doses. For every american lots are work donating back. Seas of.
Separation and Harmony With Garrett Vandenberg pt3
"They special guest is returning guests. Garrett vandenburg welcome back to the show. It's could be back man. I'm happy to be chatting here again. Absolutely it's great having to back good seeing hope. Everything's been all right today. We just kind of want to start off with. Let's describe the the dvd that garrett believes it the deity that i believe. Well i mean so we. We use the word god to talk about to talk about something but i think the problem is i a lot of people. Get kind of when they think problems. A lot of people can get into when when the the atheist christian dialogue about this is that usually like i look at the conversation that sam harris or look at any of those guys in kind of the the. There's like a great four horsemen of the apocalypse. Right there was docking hitchens harris and lawrence. Krauss i think guys. It's always the case that the god that they're arguing doesn't exist doesn't exist like i usually agree with these guys when they disproved the existence of particular. God that's because they're they're quantifying a particular thing they're saying. Well you know if these are the features of our of god exactly then well that that's not real. Yeah there's there's something i mean. This this is a problem is a really philosophical problem though. Because as soon as i described the very specific features of you more me you can push that description to a limit and then you can say not see that that person you're talking about they don't really exist because you just described them wrong. That's that that there's there's a logical contradiction in what the way in thing you just described
Fresh " Lawrence" from The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"It's disheartening. Shall we say just how effective it is. Just how appealing that is to so many people to have been given that permission and it's no accident that Practically one hundred percent of the people at the direction or white people and it's no accident that the republican leadership has embraced. Donald has embraced. What the rest of us might view as the worst things about him. Which are the the worst things in america because they know they have a very narrow path to stay in power at. It is by appealing to the worst instincts in the american people. Another passage in your book says donald is an instinctive fascist who is limited by his inability to see beyond himself or as the historian. Timothy snyder puts it. His vision never went further then. A mirror still arguing about whether or not to call donald. A fascist is the new version of the media's years long struggle to figure out if they should call his lies lies. What's more relevant now is whether the the media and the democrats will extend the label of fascism to the republican party itself. Should we extend that label to the republican party. Without question there is. It's a waste of time and quite honestly it's a waste of our opportunity to turn things around The next year and a half will be incredibly crucial to see if we can put a stop to this trend and the democrats in particular in the media in general have to face this in a way that demonstrates the understand the serious seriousness of the threat. Democrats keep playing by old rules because republicans have burned the rulebook. There are rules anymore. So pulling punches and using language. That's polite isn't going to get us where we need to be. I have a lot more notes here about your book and if you can stay with us across a couple of minutes of commercials we can get a few more questions. I'd love to okay great. We'll be right back with mary. Trump pay everyone. It's mainly msnbc corresponded and host of the podcast into america. In nineteen sixty eight gold medals wyoming titus protested at the mexico city olympic games but few noticed and by the care about what women's said. We'll be as how i felt about that this week. On the podcast we take a look at one of the greatest olympians. You've probably never heard of whose quiet protests spoke volumes continues to echo today at the twenty twenty one olympic games in tokyo search for into america wherever you're listening now and follow to get new episode every thursday morning and her new book entitled the reckoning. Mary trump writes the united states engages in its own form of toxic. Positively a series of deep denials. That perpetuates are two. Tiered system maintains double standards and keeps our wounds from healing this recurring urge to move on this impatience. With doing the hard work of atonement of accountability of tearing down the structures of oppression and rebuilding new ones. That worked for everybody traps us in the same cycle of privilege and denial of privilege that keeps us separate hostile and suspicious and mary. Trump is back with us. That passage there were. You just talked about the this recurring urged move on the impatience with doing the hard work of atonement. We are seeing a version of that and the republicans reaction to a january sixth commission at committee in the house now to investigate exactly what happened on january six then leading up to it. We are and it shouldn't surprise us. We've been seeing the republican party. Make the conscious decision to put up with donald from the election. Onward despite his egregious behaviors despite his unconstitutional behaviors. Despite the fact that he's cruel incompetent and has done so much damage to this country. Because they believe that's what they need to do in order to stay in power no matter how illegitimately which equally if not more troubling however is the inaction by the doj. As far as i can tell to delve into what was really going on in this administration in terms of trying to steal the last election and trying to determine who in the administration was involved in organizing the insurrection. We have active seditionists in our government right now and if we don't deal with us if we don't face this in hold people accountable which again is something. This country has never been able to do from robbery on down. Then i really don't know what is too much Because the message will be if you get into power you get away with any You make the point in the book that if the donald trump had been convicted in the senate trial which by the way only would required a minority of republican senators to join with democratic senators to get to that two thirds threshold to to meet that requirement. You say if he had been convicted he would not have been able to Run for office again and you say if nothing else taking that step would have made it impossible for donald to pretend he planned to run for the presidency again in two thousand twenty four and thereby shut down his ability to raise money off. That pretexts My guests about this has been that he is not going to run again and this is all about raising money. Is that what you're saying you don't believe he's gonna run again lawrence. I thought that For a long time because he lost so badly to joe biden that i didn't think he would ever want to put himself into position of losing again. And i think that would've been the case if not for two things One that he seems still to be getting away with everything right and to the republican.
2021 NBA Draft Preview With Mike Schmitz
"Really wanted to get answer is nice enough to fit us in mike schmitz who does nba draft analysis for us. Here at espn mike. Thanks for taking the time man. I know you're super busy. Yeah no problem. I actually in on my way to new york here for the draft so We're we're getting closer all right. Yeah no kidding. Perfect timing so we got you in route just in the next couple of days. I mean obviously every year is different. But how how much you think things will change in the first round between now and the actual draft. Yeah i think that teams for the most part you know. I've kind of their big boards set to some degree. But you know the biggest thing. I think that can change things as traits honestly And you know that's where from a betting perspective you know you're you're locked in on you know your your lock the draft or whatever it is your can't miss batman some team moves into the top ten and you know That kind of throws everything a for loop. So that's that's the only thing. I think That can really change things but you know other than that. I have a pretty good sense that you know the way we see things in the top ten or so Feels solid but again. It's it's always fluid. We've got more than forty eight hours to go here. Great so let's talk about just the first pick because you know the the betting odds are we saw a trevor lawrence at the jets. Pretty pretty extreme. But you know the pistons is whether it be doing their due diligence or whatnot. They've tried out a bunch of guys. How solid we with cunningham because there are reports of trade at least interest from other teams now not necessarily detroit but teams wanting to go up. Yeah i think pretty solid you know. I i think vegas has this one right You know i think cunningham will ultimately be the guy and you know even if it is like you know. Say detroit in this. I better say detroit. Is you know more interested in having moberly or jalen green and they wanna swap with houston houston to cunningham at number one i think ultimately cunningham is gonna go number one regardless. I feel like ninety nine percent. Pretty confident about that I think the league feels the same way but you know detroit doing their due diligence. I don't think it's more than that. We saw that basically a few

"Hi lawrence good evening. Call and thank you very much for that ohio report because that is now every thing i know about the ohio house races tonight. there's so much news pouring down on us that I have not been able to get to that one tonight. And so you've just taught me everything. I know about the tea leaf. Reading is always having worked in politics. There's always too much tea leaf reading but there it is tea leaves to choose.

Sen. Ron Johnson Comments on Biden's High Spending Disaster
"Joe Biden said the other day at what they called a town hall meeting in one of his more coherent moments. That, uh, in effect, spending more money by spending more money, he will reduce inflation. Are you aware of any economic theory ever devised by mankind that holds that position, sir? No. And I know what his, uh, you know, economic advisor to Democratic President Lawrence Summers definitely would not agree with that, Martin. I'm wondering Facebook will pull that down sense of that bit of disinformation. We've got a president. That's a one man. This information gaffe machine himself, and, uh, it's amazing. He's actually going to Facebook, including with them, but take down other people's and disinformation. But here's what concerns me. Since he is the executive branch since years, the head of the Democrat Party, I don't think he's alone in believing this idiocy. I think when you look across the island, the United States Senate, you have a cabal of individuals who either agree with that or don't give a damn. They are prepared to spend trillions and trillions of dollars more. They think it's all free money. They think the they'll be able to do whatever they want to do no matter what. How do you deal with the How do you negotiate with people like this? You don't you have to. You have to resist them.

"Yeah i mean you know to cohen stinks to. I mean so. Like don't be drafting. Through cohen media. You know and i i. I think that we can sort of. I don't know i don't want to say. Cancel him out but we can definitely downgrade him as it pertains david montgomery being a huge threat to david. Montgomery i think that at this point is possible. The damian williams is more of a threat to david. Montgomery no i totally agree. And yeah like. I've said before it went david. Montgomery was getting ninety. Five percent of the bears running back touches last year. I mean their backers for like ryan. Aw i mean they had like no one to go to. Now they can go to damian williams as kind of a breather back for david. Montgomery and i think david williams is going to be a bit of a factor. There interesting news out of dallas came back. I was just reading some dallas and i came across and this was kind of what i was worried about with blake jar win. Dalton schultz has received and this was from the athletic. Don't show has received. The bulk of first team wrap says blake. Darwin has been brought back slowly from his knee injury. I was kinda out on blake. John wayne anyways because i was worried about. This don't schultz. I thought play well last year. I dow stock. He played well last year and joins coming off with serious injury. It only makes sense for them to rotate some. Have you moved. Blake darwin down. And what do you think about. How dallas tight ends. We're gonna shake out this year now because these guys were already. I mean i don't i don't want either of them even this this good of an offense like i just i've been sort of anticipating rotation you know i think it's i think it makes sense You know blake. Darwin is coming off the acl. I think that if he were truly one hundred percent than they would prefer him because he's a little bit more explosive than dalton shoals but Better blocker so. I think it makes sense for them to use a rotation in and this is not a situation where they're going to be playing too tight end sets like they need to have cd. Lamb amari cooper michael gallup on the field as much as humanly possible yet. So it's going to end up a rotation okay last thing here not camp news but top one fifty change you move trevor lawrence up to qb thirteen from qb. Sixteen you now have trevor lawrence ahead matthew stafford but just behind ryan tannehill wide moved trevor lawrence up now. I really seen any news. Other than standard chevra lawrence looks good in camps. Up as i've like know i'm finishing up the team previews and i'm looking at early season schedules and i mean i. I know a lot of people stress wanting to finish really well. You know in the fantasy playoffs and you know that would be great But that's a really difficult time of year project given that were like five months out from that you know four months or whatever it is will we can. More accurately project is with teams at full close to full strength to begin the year. We can project the strength of schedule for those and if you look at the jaguars strength of schedule in terms of the pass defense in defense that they're going to be facing in weeks one through five i think that they're gonna come out hot offensively and I think that. Trevor lawrence is gonna end. It's it's difficult to decide between. Marvin jones a dj shark in viscous channel. And so. I think that trevor lawrence is gonna come out hot as like a guy that you'll be able to stream for the first month plus of the season And so that's why. I'll give little bumps to get to especially at quarterback or give little bumps to guys like that i five games for the jaguars. Texans broncos cardinals bangles titan. Certainly a very soft start for trevor lawrence's first five and goes are the only ones in there that you're you're worried about. I think the other one all for the the other ones look real good all right we will stay on top of all the news and notes from training camp for you again. We're trying to still down to what we actually think matters discussed figured out and adjust our rankings. That way you can find all of our ranked silva's top one fifty and ranks for every other format as part of our draft if you've been behind having following nfl. Obviously these podcast. I think how reading every one of silva's team previews i think we'll help you a ton to get caught up really really quickly. That's also in the draft kin. We'll be back next episode to talk fades for the upcoming season. Four pretty sure loop for evan. I'm added good luck everybody do..
Robby Steinhardt, Violinist and Co-Lead Vocalist of Kansas, Dead at 71
"Guess this is this is partly personal. But I have a feeling that I'm not the only one who is interested in this story. So I'll share it with my fellow fans of rock music. And especially back when I was really, you know, getting into it back in the seventies. And I've been I've been a radio listener as a kid from Cali. I can't remember 56 years old, uh, listen to a lot of great music of big fan of top 40 radio back in the late sixties. The Motown sound. Then, as we got in the early seventies, I got my little transistor radio and got into more of the Beatles. The Eagles as they came on in the mid late seventies, especially but also, uh, Kearney and wings and triumph and yellow yellow was probably one of my favorites. But this band also held the spot. The band's Kansas. You probably remember this song dust in the wind, Give a listen to this violent solar. Really quick man who did that Robby Steinhardt. The original violinist for Kansas, Also, a co lead vocalists actually sings Believe vocal on this song as well. Backup vocal Well, we lost Robbie over the weekend, he died from acute pancreatitis. The founding member of the band and a rarity. I mean, a violin player in a rock band. How did that all come about? My parents asked me to play the violin, I guess made me play as of island would be more accurate. I was the first chair in my high school orchestra. My junior high school orchestra in my grade school orchestra. Remember when Philly heart call me and he said, I heard you play and I wanted to find out if you wanted to get together and form a band. I remember being in Lawrence, Kansas and seeing him playing and singing, and I just thought that is a guy that I need to be in a band with. I've never seen anybody else like that guy. I've never heard anybody play like that guy and I've never heard anybody sing that way, Robbie said. Do you guys have a tape? So I sent him a reel to reel and he called back. He said. Awesome. I'm in that piece Audio from the documentary Kansas Miracles out of nowhere. Robby Steinhardt was unusual. He played the violin. Yeah, we have fiddle players. But this guy was a true classical violin player in a rock band and just totally helped to, you know to to forge a new sound, of course. As we mentioned dust in the wind, but carry on my wayward son, another favorite of theirs that I love playing the game tonight like that one as well point of no return. So the list goes on and on just some great music. Romney Robby Steinhardt dead at the age of 71 from pancreatitis, So it's a little sad news there for you, and I'm like I say, partly personal. I wanted to put that on the air, but I'm sure that I'm not the only one Alan checking in with me saying Thank you. You're welcome, Ellen. I just Couldn't let let that go by

Democrats Battle Republican-Led Voting Curbs in Georgia
"Well we faced a democracy crisis when the president of the united states called georgia's secretary of state on january second and told him to quote find eleven thousand seven hundred and eighty votes. We survived that crisis because the georgia secretary of state refused to lie about the vote. Count and change the vote count so that donald trump could win the state of georgia. Instead of joe biden. Republicans in georgia do not want that to happen again and so they have removed the secretary of state from the position of authority in the aftermath of an election and they have moved georgia closer to the possibility of cheating the vote out next time. Donald trump calls an asks them to do that. And george is not the only state that is trying to make it for donald trump to call and tell them how many votes he needs to win an election.

"The unexpurgated edition that came out. I think in two thousand four but that only sort of refueled further debates about a number of incidents in the book but particularly i think this sexual assault incident and i think this consensus at this point is that it didn't go down in the way that we understand it and in the way that it's adapted for the foam like this is worth mentioning because i mean it's partially an interesting thing. Historians have been saying about lawrence and his sadomasochism and his kind of fantastical narrative. Sense the sort of story that he wanted to relate to the public and the role that it might have played in potential exaggerations here but also that this might have been politically motivated. His description of this assault as a way of smearing turkish enemies. Seems like there are a couple of possible explanations but historians are not sure about this one and i mentioned this a front because in its adaptation into this movie. We're getting into some of that slippery political territory where as represented here. I'm about to make the case that. I think it's pretty unambiguous that he is sexually assaulted in this spell and i think as as we see the case made here you can see the ways that people might feel that it ties into these bad stereotypes of the arab savage right there. You can get there through sort of depictions of war violence but there's also just this kind of unthinkable and the way that essentially so broadly of course but also sexual assault against is still in some ways not kind of reckoned with and it is unrepresentative oil and certainly unrepresentative in this era in the era of this movie. So you can see the ways that by even going there. As lately as i feel that it does that it can feel like it's part of the racial.

"Getting more out of every tripton thought was so interesting is movie is so massive and obviously they couldn't shoot at night because i can only imagine what it would have been too light by moonlight. You know already impossible but did you notice that you know this. Movie has an effect on it that i think a lot of films of this day dana have which is like they should day for night in the filter over the lens so it gives night a very kind of eerie look. It's a gay <hes>. It almost looks like sunset all the time or something like that. It's cause. They have a lens over the camera. I mean i like the idea that it looks alien in a way because what i thought when i was watching lawrence take this time was how much the alien look. Lawrence of arabia is then transplant into star wars right. <hes> doesn't this movie just seem like star wars well. Of course i mean look. It's it's it's these are the people who were affected by the film. I mean that's spielberg lucas scorsese. They're all watching this as kids going. I wanna make that yeah. We've seen that i was most thinking of is i really really early on when lucas at tattooing and he's running around with goggles and he's spying. He's looking at what he calls.

"This this is lawrence at the most godlike he is and you basically are making this allusion almost like walking on water walking on the train car. You're seeing him in these flowing robes he he looks absolutely god-like and and what is he doing like. He is losing the thread right like he's. He's bought into his own power. I think the you know this power and corrupt. I think that that's part of this journey to whether you're large government a small tribe. <hes> you know or just a man you see how this i mean. This moment leads into the rape scene because of his bravado he he doesn't even take any precautions. He's losing his army. He doesn't care he's he. You know he when you get shot. He's like of course i didn't die. It doesn't hurt standing there. I was thinking actually standing standing there like jewels. Everybody shoots at him and fiction. He standing there like go on and there's a d._n._a. In that really liked yeah i really i mean it's fascinating but yeah like the score is telling us. He's not a hero and it's it's building up to that moment after the big massacre when we have this reversal like at the beginning lawrence's telling selling sharieff your the monster. You're the uncivilised one in now at sharieff saying you have gone too far. You are the monster in then you have the photographer who has made him into this god in this moment and there's even this kind of sense that like maybe he's the figurehead because because people like anthony quinn don't want to be photographed so he is the photographed one and then you have the photographer almost just yelling at him and away since he regrets what he's done to make this man of god jesus. Where does it surprise you mr bentley surely you know the arabs are s- people dobson crew who but who but they oh you'll rotten. Let me take your rotten bloody picture for the rotten bloody newspapers. I love that it should be. They're saying like this is your stereotype of me but it was the englishman who did and here is the reporter who built this man. Who's now condemning this man and that's again. It's all about these characters very small observed served performances of of how we can build somebody up and then knock them down and feel in the right on both sides i mean he leaves us movie not a hero. I mean again going back to that scorsese clip. He leaves you long. I think for simplicity of what we see in the first act which is being lost in the desert place that he feels as clean and exciting and what he kind of did was got himself back into the corporate or the the idea of what the i mean that's what the end of the movie he is. It's like they take over this town and they start to form government but they you know they can't figure out the government. It's like we're getting into bureaucracy like like it. It all just devolves. Yeah i mean it's fascinating when they make it to damascus and you have the scene of the arab council which i think is like the they this movie does make the arab council look completely insane because they're trying to just condense into really fast by the way gotta people screaming. Arab council lasted way after the war. I mean if until nineteen i'm twenty right yeah i think like i think a lot of the people of the arab nations were so offended by this moment of the arab council that that's part of why this movie was banned in most arab nations besides egypt yeah. It looks like our physician and it's really of elevated him there there right. At least i mean but it looks almost duck soup like it is it is a it is is comical. It is a legit comical. Yeah we've gone from this kind of expanse of the desert. When you see these tribes in the desert they make visual sense. You know there's this clearness. There's a space and then they're they are. They fit in that landscape and the way they're shot here. It's all these clashing costumes of all these people from all these different tribes doors where we're not nice to see them as the cantina and it's crowded and it's chaotic and it just looks like it doesn't fit and there's this dark irony that i love in here where these are people who have not needed electricity city and they have not needed running water in now they're falling apart because this town does and they're asked to do something that they have never needed before and of course they can't go from like zero zero two seven hundred on being like oh yes. This is how wiring work because they have in. They have learned to live without it. They've never had it and so yeah i can imagine watching the scene and and being from arab nation and then you watch this this chaos exists.

"Had the honor to shake his hand in damascus. Nope i never knew he had some minor function on my stuff in cut what's interesting about this is. We're watching a newspaper reporter. Talk to people at a funeral and one of the people who actually interviews is a newspaper reporter who plays a pivotal part art in the film and i think one of the comments that they're making is how you know we create our own history like that. Newspaper reporter was very very influential in creating the idea of lawrence and then you have other people who don't even know this person creating another version of him so you know what is true and that's something i think we struggle with all the time like what is our history and it's not even like history is told through the side the winners it's history is told through. I think our perceptions in our once we want him to be this person so there's a part of me. That thinks that this movie is this lawrence or is this how we want to remember him because he's definitely shot and presented in a way you know he sometimes has dirt on his face but he's always shaving. He always looks amazing and i think that it is a conscious choice. We are putting him on a pedestal i mean and when he is beaten he still looks good and i don't know if that's an effective what how the film is kind of talking about how we talk about history or if it is just i <hes> more about the time and how you've made movies in your action stars or your movie stars have to always look amazing yeah. No i think it really is about how we frame. The people that we call heroes you know i think this is actually a problem. We have really ongoing today in movies all the time where we want to think that the people that we elevate into the people worth telling stories about our heroes. They're good guys like this. Person did something important so therefore what they did. Maybe as good rover telling their story. We want everything that they did to vindicate. What we think is good like there's some sort of moral lesson into it and i think this whole film is about that idea like a person can do something big and that person it does not have to be a hero and that person might not call themselves a hero or them prison might call themselves a hero and then be crazy for it and then realized they're not a hero or that person might have been made here by the people around want him like the newspaper reporter we see who was actually based on a real dude he was based on this dude named lowell thomas and what lowell does he took all this footage of the realty alliance and in one thousand nine hundred he started screening at around in theaters he called it the last crusade oh the third one yeah it was a special event and it was hugely popular and lawrence himself it was really uncomfortable with it because he already felt broken by his experience in east and he's and he quote was made into a matinee idol and you'd walk around and he will get mobbed and people would ask him to marry him any hated who became in this fame made him really uncomfortable and that's the man that we see this fiction version of the man who made him famous kind of to who is on emotional psychic detriment will the movie does a great job of showing him incredibly heroic and then incredibly conflicted you know he is someone someone who at certain points in the film is is one of the most effective people by violence you know and yet he uses violence wants to achieve his ends. It's a fascinating character and i was thinking about how you know. Peter o'toole approach this character because he has to kind of play later on so many different levels and i found this clip from nine hundred sixty two. It's a little bit long but i think it's worthwhile because it's talking about how he saw. Lawrence dig listen said this lockable which has never understood before which was a lot of him of middleweight boxer in.

A where you are really thrown into a world where the rules of normal film don't really apply right like the pacing incredibly different <hes> you can really exist in two scenes and i would argue out of all the films i just mentioned this film probably has the least amount of plot i mean in two thousand and one doesn't have a tremendous amount of pot either but it's interesting like what's happening. Here is very simple. If you were to break down the story you could you could do it pretty easily with all the specifics can get lost in the minutia but it's a it's a pretty one two three four kind of a film but you are just kind of literally toronto world. I imagine when you're in a theater you feel like i am there and and what must have felt like to be in theater at that point when you're not even getting exposed close to those kinds of landscapes i mean i love that you paired this with ben hur movie that came before it and two thousand and one movie that came after because this really is the movie that let's both assists right. I mean i we're so used to now is using lawrence of arabia is like this shorthand for gigantic epic that oh my god. I don't know if i have time for or snow lawrence arabia to like put it down. It's it's used as an adjective on its own and i think it's hard to really appreciate about what this movie was. In nineteen sixty two is it was modern you know i think we think of as a little bit old fashioned now because it is a period piece even for its day but it was a period piece from a time not that long ago relatively speaking <hes> because we we had drank epics like ben hur but the giant ethics of the day we're like biblical stuff ancient things real history sword and sandals and this was people who made this movie were i alive and could be mad at it. You know the relatives of king faisal were still controlling parts of syria and iraq. I mean this movie really is this pivotal transition wendish moment where it opens the door for the ethics of the future like two thousand one yeah and you can see that going all the way through to a film dunkirk. You know you really can kind of exist in these smaller stories and much more epic landscape. Obviously we're just focusing on this man's journey through the the war. I'd also argue that in nineteen sixty two. You're probably more familiar with some of the details of world war one and that's a that's a kind end of a blind spot for me. I like history but it's it's one of the wars that they don't really know that much about so i wonder also if it puts me a a little bit <hes> far away from the material because it's kind of acclimating myself to what's going on because they don't really lead you into it that much i mean they're keeping you a little bit <hes> their hand holding you to a certain extent but i think if you understood the kind of machinations of what's going on you might even find yourself more immersed in it yeah exactly exactly because i think you're right. We definitely have a world war two bias and film over one bias in film especially when it comes to the films of our generation that we've grown up with and when we do get a world war for one film it's usually films from europe even though the whole fighting in the desert. We don't really talk very much at all like it's not that many movies and so if people are watching this there really confuse. Maybe i should just give a thirty second history of what was going on up until this point absolutely so in lawrence of arabia the turks or the ottoman empire. They're the bad guys as as we're seeing that through this lens it was happening. Here is that at this moment in time like during older one the ottoman empire had been this gigantic empire that controlled parts all the way up into hungary for six hundred years they were massive gigantic empire and end nineteen nineteen in the lead up to nine hundred ninety lead up to this area. They're worried about losing their clout. They're worried about this. Burgeoning world war one that everybody kind of coming they asked if they could make alliances maybe be friendly with the british the french with the russians and they all said no so then what it happens isn't they attack russian ports in the black sea it when they do that when they make enemies with russia then they become sort of like the enemy of my enemy is my friend in the align themselves with germany and and so we were fighting germany and therefore then we had to fight the turks. The turks were enemies. That's sort of the dominant of all of this played out and what we're seeing here in lawrence of arabia is the dissolution of the ottoman empire that ruled part of the world for so long the sultan's the suliman family these beautiful palaces that when you go to turkey you can still we'll see and then the ottoman empire becoming these countries that we know today as like iraq syria palestine jordan countries that we think of as fractious because of actually actually the way the british that we see lawrence of arabia divided up this giant territory deliberately pairing tribes together that they knew didn't get along because they thought if they made a nation state of people who didn't get along than they would always be fighting with each other and the british could control them so all the problems we have today are actually because of this new movie honestly because of this movie but because it looked the story that this movie movie is telling about this country. It will say it's been. It was really interesting for me to watch this film because before i watched the first time i hadn't been to istanbul or seeing the military museum which is all very triumphant from the celtics. This'll tmz point of view. I hadn't been to jordan now been to jordan. I've been to cairo since i since i saw this movie before and after and it's fascinating to see it kind of come to life and to see different parts of the story eliminated now. This movie makes a lot more sense to me because it's it's confusing. It's definitely confusing yeah. If that that sense of overwhelming scope in the war and the factions can kind of be a daunting wanting way in so i know that i kind of took a back seat in just enjoyed it much more from a character perspective and really was watching in you know peter o'toole and omar sharif and seeing it more as like a buddy action movie to a certain degree i mean it is about these just to men. They are essentially an odd couple that are going through going through insurmountable odds and kind of you. You know creating their own army that plays by their own rules. It's a very very traditional story housed in a historical context texts which i think is really smart way to approach immaterial because i could see the other version of it which would be a lot more sleep inducing yeah and what you're describing is actually the evolution of this movie itself because the first couple drafts of the script you mentioned that there are two writers <hes> the first writer michael wilson he wrote the political version he wrote the let's le- out all of the politics make it really clear and david lee and was like you know what we really can't do this. It's too complicated. It's just so we can't we can't handle that. We have to make this character driven and that is win. Win robert bolt come in and made it more of this character driven film and his strategy was like i mean listen the politics in this area. If you really get into them even for us today he was especially looking back with all the history. It's irreconcilable. It's contradictory. It's complicated. There are no heroes. There aren't villains. It's it's so complex so his way in really was just by drilling into the character of t e lawrence a man who i think himself contained all of the complexity and was difficult to figure out into pin down many saw himself as not quite a hero at the end of his life but a villain that by kind of embracing all that mess that's what this movie is and that's the best way through it well. I think that when the film opens it does such a great job of establishing this character the opening scene peter o'toole little bit older on this motorcycles. It's such an amazing shot. They have this <hes> this giant camera on a motorcycle racing down the road. These shots are jarring and they can only only imagine the scope of them in a theater is much more modern feeling than you were expecting. We sat down to arabia well. That's the whole thing that that opening secrets. Do you know what this movie is about and you kind of thrust into this action scene where you you don't know what to make of it. He's got is and in and the and the camera feels it like you feel like you're endangering again talking about being in a theater that is probably you know equivalent to what like seeing in star tours or something because you are in that p._o._v. of you know a very shaky camera and you're not used to such a wide screen film being so recklessly klis lee handheld. You're brought into this death scene and you're like oh my god he's dead. What what is this film and and then you slowly start to see that no one really knows who this character is and we only know a little bit about which is he's reckless and but we also you know he's a hero and we also know that people have made judgments about him but don't even know him so you start in the very first you know five minutes of the movie painting. There's a beautiful picture of a very complicated man. You were talking a little bit about his funeral scene. I wanna play a bit of that. You know you have this reporter going around trying to interview people trying to get what a story of it. I was listening to this like oh my god they took citizen kane structure including a few words about kernels more.

"Dear is nineteen sixty two. There's a man a plan and a camel. The movie lawrence of arabia hello everybody welcome to on spoiled nicholson paul sheridan and this is the podcast for each week we watch one from from the top one hundred films of all time list the two thousand seven addition to see if they really are as good as people say do they hold up and and how have they influenced the films that we watch now <hes> last week. We spoke about network with our great guests. Tatyana mas lonnie this week we we are talking about lawrence of arabia but before we get into that amy. Let's see what people thought about network. This is one of the movies that i think a lot of people saying it for the first time. We're like oh i get it. I have seen this movie referenced a gazillion times in oh my god this move feel so relevant. Today i love hearing that feedback from people just being like boom. This movie hit me like an electric thunderbolt. I can't believe that is awesome. Thanks so relevant you know. I wish i actually wrote down who said this but i thought it was interesting point so forgive me for not name checking but the idea that we are constantly in this battle of talking down to the next generation right and the idea idea that the way that we talk about millennials is very similar to the way that the old school talked about faye dunaway. You know they were raised on t._v. They don't have any morals and we're constantly looking behind us and criticizing the people there instead of elevating them up and i just thought that was a really interesting point and if you look at all the critiques level that faye dunaway you can see a great similarity between all the critiques against millennials right now. Yeah i think think morgan halen twitter is one of the people who made that point and what i think is the extra delicious irony is that it's the people of the faye dunaway era who are saying that about the millennials. They're the people who like they got it when they were kids now. They're just dishing it back. Man <hes> also <hes> we were taking the task for kind of sympathizing with the faye dunaway character. Some people thought she was a straight straight up monster and deserved no sympathy and i wholeheartedly disagree with that opinion. I i don't know she is <hes> the and nicest person but i don't think she is a monster. We really did get into that but i i disagree with that idea that she is a villain to end all villains as many people send me pictures as of seventies closed showing the women wore too much beige. I'm jealous of the cut of all those pants because you know you've seen a good high waisted pant man. You can't get me in that beige to say my life. No amy <hes> we got to actually really interesting <hes> right up this week we were written up in mr mister skin which is the website that kind of helps <hes> their readers <hes> find spots and film where people are primarily naked and someone was watching english along with us on the fi- list end and not only <hes> kind of continue the conversation with us but actually skewered the conversation to you went naked and there was one shocking mission there which was i don't think bruce willis is but was mentioned from pulp fiction and that's <hes> that is some genuine mister skin territory so yeah. I thought that writers seventy weber. I really appreciated that. One of the scenes that she pointed out was the strip seen in nashville where the singers forced to strip to get people to pay attention to her and and i thought she wrote about it not just from the perspective of yet titties out but like really getting into the emotion of the scene so well done mr skin. Yes thank you mr skin and also thanks to the washington post forgiving us a little bit of a shoutout and their article about the shawshank redemption <hes>. Did you see the pictures from the sideshow of the shawshank redemption. Here's what happened. I can actually talk about this from the l. a. week zachary pincus roth who i adore very much <hes> then he moved to washington and he became the center of the washington post he went to this giant shawshank redemption like then anniversary and that's articles about ba- my god the tattoos people has awesome sculptures out of chocolate i mean i was losing my mind signed following his instagram story about this and then when he wrote about it i was so happy and i was glad that he would say that. Our shawshank episode is still one of our most controversial. Yes i would think that <hes> we may be the public enemy number one of that fan fest i mean i don't think people <hes> great right up so well done zach you know amy. I want to talk about this briefly but the movie the joker premiered vanessa todd phelps movie you know him as the director of music. He's like old school. He also directed me in a film called sculpture scoundrels with john heater <hes> he <hes> and joaquin phoenix kind of collaborated to make the first ever r. rated warner brothers comic book movie <hes> franch potentially franchise picture you know as joaquin phoenix as a joker. The initial response response out of venice was really intense right it. It got an eight minute standing ovation and people it's amazing. It's mesmerizing. People really took out there the sources for this review and then there are a lot of people going. This is an insect story. This is a story that is taking the the wrong message and putting it out there and it was really interesting to kind of see the comparisons to taxi driver and the joker now texture. Everyone comes out and can is boot not received while at all. We talked about that a little bit but did you kinda phony that <hes> online a bit you know because i'm a critic i try not to read anything that anybody says about things you do sense of the vibe around it and i'm gonna toronto this week <hes> for the festival and i'm hoping i get a chance to see the joker but i'll be reviewing these for variety so god only knows have to but i mean i really am interested because it seems like what we're talking about isn't even exactly a film problem but an audience problem and like how do we interpret the movies like where's the weight on the audience to decipher attention because i absolutely believe that some people do see a different movie in taxi driver than i think is intended and also do think that the movie leaves it for open you know and i don't know how to feel about all of that well i i i feel very ill equipped to talk about the joker because i haven't seen it. I've only read people's reactions. Chew it and what i will say is people that were holding up taxi driver as this deft hand telling us very <hes> carefully crafted story. I argue. I think that the moral center the people were saying the tech ever had is not necessarily there. I do agree with you that it's in the eye of the beholder. You can look at it like yes. Travis bickel is a a hero at the end of that movie because of the way the public season we have seen his personal life and i think again movies are for interpretation but you can't compare the two and say that one is responsible for making one. It's era sponsor because they think they both while again. I haven't seen the joker but i don't i can clearly clearly say taxi. Driver is not like this is bad. He is you know he got no. He didn't lectures but maybe maybe that's. The film helmet need something. I want to talk about this movie. When it comes out i mean maybe we do like minnesota on the joke taxi driver because you really get into this once we can and really dig our fingernails into it. I love it all right. Let's get into today's movies a big one. I said to you last week if homework people are really nervous that i said that i did watch it on a small screen. People may have had a chance this week to go out and see on the big screen <hes> but one question that was asked common question. I'll reference paul elliott who asked why is a british classic on the list. Do you know why i mean this kind of gets into the clockwork orange territory a lot of maybe a murder. The money was the financing financing. I wonder if we don't claim things where the money with was there but we don't like the film like. I don't know how that goes i i wanted to. I wonder how many films are both on the af i and the by the british list well if we have an intrepid listener out there that wants to take on this task please do and then let us know when we will reveal the answer next week. <hes> another thing that we brought up <hes> was said call the unspoiled voicemail line at seven four seven six six six five eight two four and if you've not seen lawrence of arabia. Tell us what you think it is about and here's what we got eye radio's about the british invasion of america by the beatles so my knowledge of history is limited to billy joel's. We didn't start the fire nine hundred eighty s tomorrow janney low into sequel to the credit. Can't it's about going to arabia and teaching career lawrence of arabia as a child. I believed believed that it was the cousin of george of the jungle so i i assume it's four hours of lawrence of arabia. Finally meeting his cousin george george of the jungle saint classic <hes> fish out of water tale of a young indian boy who ends up in the middle of arabia arabia where he tiredly works on his jump shot and <hes> starts going by larry bird lawrence of arabia is a prequel to issue talk. You're right. You know what that person was right about the h._r. Thing i'm pretty sure this is a prequel ichitaro you would he think i think now i'm going to have weed inside inside the fire second my head all day <hes> all right amy. Let's get lawrence of arabia into our heads with our feature presentation.

"You have ways of breakfast before. We're not supposed to talk about what each other eats breakfast Lawrence. Okay. Okay. We'll just say goodnight. Goodnight. See later years. Okay. Okay. Enough of that presidential candidate who leeann Castro is joining us tonight. We will get his reaction to what the president said about the president's family separation policy today who he and Castro is running on among other things his own immigration reform proposal, and we'll get Helene Castro's reaction to the latest developments with the mall report. We'll also ask him what we've asked every other presidential candidate. So far. What is the best idea that you've heard from one of the other presidential candidates now, I know in Castro is not everyone's presidential candidate. At this point. No one is everyone's presidential candidate. At this point. If you're wondering where your presidential candidate is they are all invited on they will all eventually be on this program. But if you haven't seen them here yet, it just means we haven't been able to schedule yet with the campaign, but they will all be here eventually and remember eventually you're going to have to have an opinion about two candidates on the democratic side presidential candidate and a vice presidential candidate. So you're going to want to give them all. A very close. Look, and listen, and we learned more today about deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein discussions about using the twenty fifth amendment to remove President Trump from office after the president fired FBI director James Comey. We'll have that for you later in this hour, but first within a week that was one of the more important things that attorney general William bar said today, if not the most important thing about the Muller report. As I say my first. Agenda item. Here is to get the public report out what can be gotten have publicly that's going to be within a week. So that means by Monday at the latest, we'll all be reading the William bar redacted version of the several hundred page report if the attorney general waits until Monday, which is the deadline that he gave himself today that means he would be delivering his redacted version of the mullahs report to congress when he knows the house and Senate will be on their scheduled Easter recess. They won't be in Washington. So to avoid being accused of delivering his version of the mall report in such a way that congress can't really respond to it. The attorney general would have to release the report tomorrow afternoon say after he finishes testifying to the Senate in a hearing that is supposed to be about the budget of the Justice department. But will surely like today's hearing turn out to be about the Mola report, if the general is waiting to get through tomorrow's testimony before releasing his version of the Malla report, then we might be reading you. Passages of the remote Mullah report tomorrow night at this very hour, or at the latest the attorney general could reasonably release his version of the mullahs report and give congress a reasonable opportunity to respond to it..

"Now, it's time for the last word with Lawrence O, Donald Rachel. And when I saw at fifteen minutes before nine. That this memory was coming. Yeah. But we didn't actually when did you actually get it in your hands? I got it in my hands while we were playing the sound bite in the block of Mike Pence telling Mike barnicle that Mike Flynn junior didn't work on the transition. That's when it was handed to that's it was headed to me. And so as soon as I heard this, I just thought this is so unfair. This is so unfair unfair to Rachel. But okay. So so how about this? How about this? What if what if tonight? When this memo arrived, I had simply slipped into your chair and taken the first half hour. Okay. And you are reading the memo offstage somewhere, then you come in at nine thirty you go from nine thirty to ten thirty. I'll be reading the memo van, and then I mean, we'll both end up with an hour of TV in this mix. Somehow. So we'll do this. We'll do it. We'll pass news in pass breaking news like a baton and the delayed relay designed to put the most informed person on TV at any given moment. And and that first half hour when I'm covering for you. That's not gonna exactly be news. That's going to be me talking about what I did today. And maybe some old memories of working in the Senate, or whatever I can come up with to just kind of cover for you over in a corner reading. Next next filing. We could try this. Whatever you say Flynn filings have been between eight thirty nine o'clock. Yes. No. They know Rachel they are testing you. And you are passing the test. Every night extraordinary. How you tonight Mary kind, my friend. Thanks, rachel. Well, we had a vivid display today of the reason. President Trump's criminal defense lawyers. Do not want him to testify under oath to Robert Muller's grand jury. John down who quit the presence legal defense team gets the last line. The very last line in Bob Woodward's book fear where it says in the political back and forth, the evasions the dials the tweeting the obscuring crying fake news the indignation. Trump had one overriding problem that Dowd new but could not bring himself to say to the president your effing liar. That's how the book ends effing liar. Earlier. Imbaba Woodward's book. John DOD does tell the president this. You do have trouble staying on the subject, and that can defeat you. Then you try to catch yourself, and you mistake something and then bam. It's like Mike Flynn, not remembering the conversation with Kislyak. There's the president's criminal defense lawyer telling him that if he testifies under oath in the Muller investigation. He will commit perjury and on that same page of the Woodward. Book Dowd simplified has advised to the president this way don't testify. It's either that or an orange jumpsuit when John Dowd, and the Trump criminal defense lawyers watched what Donald Trump did in the Oval Office today. None of them were surprised and all of them knew what they were. Watching was version of what would happen to Donald Trump if he had to testify under oath answering questions from Robert Muller in the Oval Office today. The role of Robert Muller was played by. I Chuck Schumer. One thing. I think we can agree on is. We shouldn't shut down the government over a dispute, and you wanna shut it talking about the last time joke, you shut it. No, no, no. And then you up waiting time quickly. And when he don't wanna do what you did twenty times John of called for I will shut down the government. If I don't get my will. None of us have no something you've said, you want to put that in my said, I'll take okay good. You know, what I'll say? Yes. If we don't get what we want one way or the other whether it's through you through a military through anything you want to call. I will shut down that guy. Okay up there. And I answered and I am proud to shut down the government for border security..

"He probably can put somebody in under the vacant sees act who could be a boot on on Bob Moore's nasty or even Rosenstein. So Lawrence, here's why what is protecting the rule of law is all of the people watching tonight and how much work they do on behalf of Democrats and their states to flip those districts. Because if the Democrats take the house, even if there is an interim attorney general, who does the president's bidding, that person's life can be made a bloody hell through the subpoena power of the house of representatives. He won't be able to move a fraction of an inch to do anything to impede the Muller investigation without the House Judiciary committee subpoenaed to testify every day if necessary. So this is all about elections. Having consequences at all of this will. Play out, just fine for the constitution. If the Democrats take the house, if they don't, and it is not a sure thing by any means if they don't were living in a world of hurt and Harry live, and I want to go back to your point about the special prosecutor, referring the Michael Cohen case out of the special prosecutor's office to the US attorney in the southern district of New York. And when that happened, the head of that office, the US attorney himself recused himself because he was appointed by President Trump, and so it is now being run by the professionals in that office who are beyond the reach of President Trump, and I just want you to go back and double underline something that we raised at the time when we saw that happen, we thought this could be a move Muller is making for among other reasons to make sure the audit the investigation survives anything that might happen to him. If Donald Trump gets rid of Jeff Sessions. Rod Rosenstein gets rid of Muller something will survive in another jurisdiction. And this week when we saw what happened when we saw what Michael Cohen confessed to when we saw Michael cones heard Michael cones description of the crimes he committed with the president of the United States. Now we can understand, I think more than ever before in this week in Trump's worst week, the enormity and importance of that decision to move that case, the case that might bring down the president out to a courtroom in New York. So true. And in fact, the three biggest kinds of crimes that Muller's investigating and has uncovered, which would be this the the collusion with the getting of dirt on Hillary and the the hacking and also now the campaign finance Cohen. Now, figures centrally in all of them. This is what I mean by the dam breaking there was just a sense this week to me Lawrence that not it wasn't simply Muller pursuing this lonely path is the one person telling the truth in town. It just feels like they're been their brushfires that are breaking out everywhere and putting pressure on on Trump for many corners including civilly, right. If Trump organization is in big trouble that puts a world of hurt on him..

"Well, they're seeing kind of an unattractive character. On the one hand, Lawrence, I an admitted criminal, a guy who got up there and talked about essentially a crime spree that he and Pullman for or involved in by his story, but then also admitted, as you said to all these other crimes that some of which the prosecution said they didn't even know about until Mr. gates brought it to their attention as part of his plea agreement where they sort of say, look, you need to confess all your bad acts because it's going to come out at trial anyway. So Barbara mcquade our legal contributor notice that she thought the jury's body language, they were sort of leaning back in their seats after having been leaning forward and attentively taking notes as if to express some scepticism about gates. Now that doesn't mean they won't eventually believe. What he's saying? Because he, I thought he was ineffective and compelling witness, even as he was admitting to all these crimes. He because he is a man with nothing left to lose. I mean, his whole goal right now is to minimize his prison term and to cooperate with prosecutors. And he made it very clear that the prosecution made it very clear that if he lies on the stand, his agreement, his veal is Nolan void. But his guilty plea would stand and he'd be looking at it very long prison sentence. So. He's only sort of started partway down the road of admitting to all these various charges in the specifics that he acknowledged up front that he's guilty of. Remember he was indicted alongside Mr. Manafort with of the same Bank and tax for charges and right up front. He said, yes, I was guilty of those charges now. I've only plead guilty to this one charge of lying to the FBI, but I was guilty of all this other stuff. And here's what else I was guilty of. And it was a pretty compelling Tableau today. Lawrence made me Roka's a prosecutor you've dealt with this many times you put on the stand, your star witness for the prosecution is a person who committed crimes with the defendant. So you have the admitted criminal on the witness stand in exchange for a reduced sentence saying that guy over there that defendant is a criminal. Absolutely. And you know, I've put on the stand witnesses who have committed just horrible crimes, murderers drug trafficking, liars fraudsters. And as can noted the jury, does they get it? They don't like those cooperators and they probably don't like Rick gates and they may be leaning back in their seat. But as said, that doesn't mean they won't believe him. And that's the key prosecutors. Tell jurors all the time. You don't have to like him. You have to believe him if you don't have to, but you should. And here's why. And then they give the jury reasons to believe the cooperator of government. The government prosecution is never going to ask a jury to solely rely on a cooperating witness, like Rick gates. They're going to back their case up with crop ration- with evidence with other witnesses, and they're going to ask you, does this make sense? Does it fit in with the other evidence? They're also going to point to the cooperation agreement, and it's very important because. A cooperation agreement is designed the government cooperation agreement that all US attorney's offices us and the one that was used here to incentivize truth telly. Basically, the way a cooperator can really mess himself up is to plead guilty under cooperation agreement and then lie on the stand or two prosecutors. Then they're going to end up probably getting a higher sentence than they would have gotten it. They just walked in the door and pled guilty to some crimes the cooperation agreement incentivizes them to tell the truth. That's how they got a reduction in the sentence..

"Yeah thanks lawrence for having the biggest red flag really is that the account activity does not match the profile that the institution established on boarding so when when i republic onboard and michael cohen when they when they won boarded central consulting they established an idea of what his activity what the company's activity would look like through that account the activity that actually went through the account did not look like the profile that they establish should one boarding that's a that's a major red flag and that in and of itself can be caused for financial institution to file suspicious activity report david i'm so struck by the amount of work it would take for a bank to monitor this kind of activity this is a major new york bank with the vast number of accounts massive amounts of money coming in multi hundred thousand dollar checks million dollar checks passing through banks like this is routine a what would get their attention to say we need to spend some real men hours here with our inspectors trying to figure out what michael cohen is up to that's right lawrence it's a tremendous tremendous investment for banks both in terms of both in terms of human capital and in terms of information technology information technology makes this somewhat easier for banks the the suspicion can come from a number of sources within a bank it can come from an employee working come from an automated monitoring system and this kind of this kind of activity would most likely be detected by the automatic monitoring system and when a when a bank establishes an account it should establish a band and acceptable band for the operations of that account the criteria could include things like monthly turnover it could include whether the whether the account is is receiving incoming and outgoing wires or just one or the other it could include whether the whether the accounts receiving money just domestically or from abroad so if a if an account moves outside of that band then an alert would be generated and alert should be generated by the bank's automated monitoring systems at that point of human being would start to look at the start to look at the information but the transaction history indian formation collected on boarding and then if the human being decides this looks suspicious this looks like it's out of pattern then the human being would.
