"The white nationalist and about Holocaust denier, Nick Fuentes, and Ye, the former rapper known as Kanye West, who has made several anti semitic comments himself. After keeping mom about all this for a better part of a week, some Republicans have now this week come out, not so much against the former president himself, but against his choice of dinner companion. Kevin McCarthy, for example, spoke for the first time about the dinner this week. I don't think anybody should be spending any time with Nick Fuentes. He has no place in this Republican Party. This morning politicals Nancy vu, who has been following the GOP reaction to all this joins the conversation with her take. There have been plenty of Republicans that have condemned transactions that have not necessarily condemned Trump. So I spoke to senator Marco Rubio. And he suggested that Donald Trump should apologize just because of the fact that he started that Donald Trump is not an anti semi, but continue to rail against and condemn Nick Fuentes himself. And also spoke about Kanye, and there was other members that had said that it was ridiculous for Trump to have that meeting such as senator Joni Ernst, but also plenty of people that have said that they don't know who went as is. I think if anything, the Republican that went the farthest was indeed former vice president Mike Pence, Donald Trump's former number two, right? My tend to had said that Donald Trump should apologize for his actions as well. So that's kind of the summation of all the responses that I was able to see. What about Mitch McConnell at one point as critical as McConnell has been of Donald Trump? He said he would still support him if he were the 2024 nominee, has that changed as far as your reporting goes? It actually has. So following his denunciation of anti semitism and also his denunciation of Donald Trump having dinner with Fuentes, he followed up and said that anyone meeting with anybody advocating an anti semitic point of view is highly unlikely to be ever elected president of the United States. This is a very subtle but yet very clear shift from McConnell from previously expressed that he would have an obligation to support the Republican nominee whoever it may be. As you listen to the statements, read them, watch them. What is the message that we're getting from the Republican Party? Are some people expecting a more full throated denunciation of ever interacting with somebody like Fuentes? Well, I think of Republicans now are kind of used to this kind of practice of apologizing for Donald Trump in condemning his actions but not necessarily condemning him. So I think that there isn't necessarily an expectation for a more full frontal approach of an apology, but Donald Trump is still running to be

Pastor Paul Chappell: What's the Faith-Base of Those 12 Republicans?
"Have a list. This is a freshly updated list of Republican senators who are supporting this, and all of these folks, by the way, were just like Barack Obama and one of them in particular was staunchly opposed to same sex marriage. That would be Mitt Romney of Utah, who now supports the bill, also Tom tillis of North Carolina, rob Portman of Ohio and Susan Collins of Maine, a Lisa Murkowski is hinting that she will support this along with senators, let's see here. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa, telling Business Insider that she was keeping an open mind about the bill. So you could have more Republican senators joining the Democrats pastor. Yes, that's a concern. And I always, as a pastor, I always ask myself, what's the faith base of the individual making that vote, what's going on at their home church? Because it usually influences them. And then the second thing is who are their donors. And there's a lot of money that comes from this crowd. What they're all saying is that this was passed at the Supreme Court level. We're just agreeing with the Supreme Court. But that's not exactly as I understand it true. This is an opportunity for them to be what our founders intended. It checks and balances in how far this law is codified and how much of a nuisance it becomes to the faith community. And so at the very least, they need to consider language in the in this that excludes religious organizations and I've yet to hear about that. Well,
The 12 Republican Traitors Who Supported 'Respect for Marriage Act'
"Yesterday about this respect for marriage act, and in a nutshell, this is going to put a target on every single church Christian school, Christian business owner in America. You're a nonprofit. They're going to yank your tax exempt status. That's what's going to happen with this. So they had to pass this thing. There was a major hurdle they had to pass, and they were able to do it last night. 12 Senate Republicans joined Democrats. To push through this plan to codify gay marriage. And again, this is not about gay marriage. This is about not protecting religious liberty. And there's a very good chance if this thing gets passed and it looks like it'll be passed with the entire Senate momentarily, and then it goes back to the house. And the house is going to pass it, and Biden's going to sign this into law. And then you will get a knock on the front door of your church from the Internal Revenue Service. That's what this is all about. So here are the 12 senators who joined the Democrats and I'm going to share these names, then you need to call these senators and you need to give them the what for. And then I want you to call us back and tell us what they said. But these are the senators who, by the way, previously were opposed to gay marriage to get elected, but now that they're in office, all of a sudden they've had a change of heart. So here they are. Roy blunt, Richard burr. Shelley capito, Susan Collins, Joni Ernst from Iowa, shame on you, Joni Ernst, Cynthia Loomis, Lisa Murkowski, typical rob Portman, Dan Sullivan, Mitt Romney, Tom tell us and Todd young.

"joni" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"Respect everybody's opinion. But on the CNI, the most intellectual that I heard through it all was Herschel Walker. I was most impressed with what he was afraid that NIL was going to do to collegiate sports now. My point then after saying this was some of the problems that may be going on with some of the powerhouse schools right now. With social media, the politics and by the way, with what's going on and has been for a long time. I also love baseball as the only thing I could hire for my employee. But that's my opinion. I agree with you on that, by the way. But anyway, if I lived in Georgia, which I know, but if I did simply because of that man's comment, when you had him on the show that day and as a well spoken, it was an honor to listen and to watch him because I watched him as a Heisman Trophy winner. I washed him at top of the pound with George like I know you did. I saw a needle in the stadium when Natalie stadium was a needle in the stadium. We've seen it all power older. Yes, sir. I graduated. Yeah, I graduated 72 over in Clinton. We just had a 50 year reunion. And you know, JW, my best one of my best Friends in college went to Clinton, and I've been to a high school football game there. It's an amazing place on a Friday night. Well, I will say that I spoke to one. I hope it's the same one we have in common. If
"joni" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"Hey, welcome back, check an hour is live where you think all of you for being here and this is day one of basketball media days in Birmingham, the women are first up and we go back to Birmingham now, Courtney, it's all yours. Well, howdy Paul, we are back here in Birmingham for the SEC tip off, and yeah, that howdy means we're joined by Texas a and M, the new head coach Joni Taylor and Sydney Roby who's now a veteran for the aggies. Welcome to media day and Joni, I'm going to start with you. Texas a and M coming over from Georgia, why was Texas a and M a good fit for you? Very similar in terms of just rich tradition, culture. Talking to Ross and Kristen just really felt strongly that they were wanting to make women's basketball or priority. They won a national championship before and wanted to see that happen again. And so their commitment to women's basketball across the board was something that just really stuck out to me. I also just really lined up with their morals and values and their core ethics were very similar to ours. And so it was an easy decision. Now one of the things Joni you and I talked about was bringing your style to Texas a and EM. So what does that look like in College Station? And it looks like a process, right? We are much better than we were in April, but we're not where we need to be. And so it's about being better today than we were yesterday. Obviously we still want to play fast. We want to defend at a high level. And so we are just teaching those things every single day. So we're looking for them to just continue to improve in those areas. Sidney, you've been with this Texas a and M program now for a while. What made you want to stay and play for coach Taylor? It's definitely the culture of the spirit of Aggie land. I love being in College Station, Texas. It's just something I've grown to love. It's kind of a homey environment to be in. And just coming into this new era, she said, we're becoming. So is this something special to be a part of, that I definitely wanted to stay? When you brought up becoming. And that's the theme of this season. Johnny, what does that mean? And where did you get that from? Well, you know, I'm a fan of Michelle Obama. But we spend a lot of time thinking about what our motto for the year is going to be, what our rally and cry is going to be. And when we just look at our roster from top to bottom, we're the second youngest team in the league. And most of our returners did not have a lot of playing time last year. They didn't have a lot of experience. The freshman that came in and the ones that came with us have not played. And so we're learning a lot. And we are becoming elite. We're becoming sisters. We're becoming rebounders and screeners and scorers. And consistent. And so we are nowhere near where we want to be. It's going to be a process that's going to take years to build. But this team has a chance to show everyone what that's going to look like. So Sidney for you, what are you becoming? There you go. I'm definitely becoming the best version of myself. Taking it one step at a time, day by day, just trying to improve on my strength and my weaknesses, just focusing on every step of the process. And that's not easy because you came from playing a differences. And you played a lot of zone, pack on defense. I know Joni and what she's brought from Georgia's more athletic and in the passing lane and man to man, how has that transition been for you? It's definitely been different to say did you like it at first? So you can be honest. To say the least, it's just definitely been something new for me. It's been me getting a lot better shape, you know, just me being a better version of myself, being able to get up and down the floor, being able to cover on body defense, you know, help side all that good stuff. But it's definitely just been the process. I've just been embracing the process, and it's something that it's been really significant for me to just do that things. Let me tell you what, coach Taylor told me about you. She said, you throw the ball inside the Roby. Ain't nobody gonna take it from her, and she commands her space. So there you go. Wilson, you're one of the veterans. Let's talk about some of the new faces that you've brought in, joanie, because there's a lot of excitement. I mean, janaya Barker coming in at number three overall, the highest ranked recruit in Texas and in history, like Tucker, tell us about some of the younger players that you brought in along with Sydney. And what you mentioned, I'm very talented, can play multiple positions. Again, they're all in transition. But really going to be fun to watch can score a bunch of different ways. Challenging her on the defensive end and just again that word consistency, sitting bowls is a player from Atlanta that is an elite shooter, has been really good for us from consistency standpoint. It's been someone who I think every single day has been one of our most consistent players excited to see what she can do. Today, Hilton was the freshman last year that came to Georgia with us in January and then transitioned with us. It's going to be able to play the point in the two fourths and can score at three levels and then my pedicure is someone who texted a and M signed and stayed on with us from Detroit. Someone who was learning every day and who over her career is going to have a huge impact on our program. You get players that are coming back. We talked about Sydney robot. We have a leopard patty, but also some more Jones. She's had a pretty good pre season as well. What has she done well? Sahara is someone who has really let her walls down, right? When she walks in the room and she's got a small in the face, it just lights up the entire room and it's infectious. And so she's really embraced playing at a faster pace. She's embraced being a solid defender for us. She's a big guard that takes up space, both ends of the floor and so she's someone who we're challenging to dominate on both sides of the ball, right? She can shoot it. She can get to the rim. She's strong enough to finish, and also she takes up space defensively.

The Media and Their Abortion Myths
"Abortion dominated the coverage. I commented last night before I went out to the movie that, you know, if you read the elite media and I do every night show prep. It's so deep blue. It's so pro abortion right. You won't get a sense of it. Republicans on cusp of abortion win seek to change the subject. No, they're not. I'm going to play for you in segment three, John thune on the Senate floor. It's best example, but Joni Ernst on this show, you have to say Nikki Haley. We are all proudly pro life. We want to restrict abortion, but do so via state legislatures and not change a single blue state law. That's the bottom line. We're not trying to change the subject. We're happy to campaign on that subject. And if blue states don't want candidates adopting that subject, you will get Republicans like Pete Wilson running in states like that who have always been pro choice. It reflects the federalism of America. This is abortion pills by mail posed challenge for officials in red state. No, they don't. They can't stop those. The interstate commerce clause. Once close allies, Robertson Alito have taken divergent path. No, they have not. They are still together far more than they are apart, and there's no indication that chief justice had did not assign the opinion to Alito. That's a made up of blue bubble media thing.
Why the Supreme Court Draft Decision Was Approached With Reason
"Court. I've been teaching these cases for 25 years at Chapman university school of law. And I know them backwards and forwards. And so I read the opinion I'm persuaded. It's the correct opinion. I hope it's at least a 6 three decision. I don't know if you've had a chance to read the opinion of what you think of its reasoning. But I find it persuasive. Did you have a chance to read it? I have not you. So with all the stuff we're working on here. But I do have some members of my legal team and we sat down briefly yesterday. And I tried to hit some of those high points. And what they have been able to review so far, they also thought it was very sound reasoning. And not coming from a pro life or pro abortion standpoint, they were looking at it as just pure reasoning and they felt that it was the right direction. So I'm excited to dig in a little deeper and see. But this is unfortunate. I shouldn't even have this opportunity, right? Yes. It is because it was leaked. And the crazy thing is, they're very few people that have access to these opinions.
The Roe v. Wade Draft Decision Is Not a Surprize
"Henry Olsen had a great opinion piece in the Wall Street in The Washington Post yesterday. The leak is a shock what the draft decision says is not. And I tweeted it out. I hope you follow me on Twitter at you. You ought to see this because it's really quite an amazing summary. Nobody is surprised that at least 5 and I suspect 6 justices are going to overturn roe and Casey. It's bad constitutional law has been bad constitutional law for 49 years and everybody who knows constitutional law knows that. They say, oh, reliance, and it should be that way. Well, amend the constitution or pass a national law based on interstate commerce,
Mitch McConnell Says Draft Leak Threatens SCOTUS Security
"Meanwhile, Mitch McConnell took the Senate floor yesterday, cut number four. The same political movement that used a leak to move up the timeline of justice Breyer's retirement process is trying to use yet another leak to make the court less secure and less impartial. Never before, never before in modern history has an internal draft been leaked to the public while the justices were still deciding a case. Never before. Whoever committed this lawless act knew exactly what it could bring about. The justices already require security, less than two weeks ago, an unbalanced person lit himself on fire on the court steps. Less than three years ago, a liberal mob tried to storm the court, shoving past law enforcement and pounding on the doors. Look, everybody knows what kind of climate the far left is trying to fuel. One that is antithetical, antithetical to the rule of law.
J.D. Vance Wins Ohio Republican Primary
"Jenny Vance will be the next senator from Ohio nominated last night by the Republican Party winning 32% of the vote, Josh mandel 24% Matt Dolan 23% proving a number of things. Former president Trump's endorsement matters a lot, Peter Thiel's backing matters a lot, and that there is a not Trump rump within the Republican Party that is probably as equal as to the always Trump rump. That helped JD over the top. He was behind until the former president endorsed him. He won handily. He is going to win handily. I note that Matt Dolan quickly came out and endorsed him on Twitter very closely act by the state senator and Matt Dolan delivered the two largest counties. He won Franklin Franklin counties where Columbus is in cuyahoga counties where Cleveland is, he won those counties handily, and his throwing in with JD brings the party together. I'm sure Josh will follow suit. And Jenny Vance should beat my friend, but he's a Democrat, Tim Ryan and Tim has committed to abortion all the time. Regime and said so yesterday on the eve of the primary and that's not going to fly in Ohio, which is a pro life state. Sign the heartbeat bill. It's a red state at the Trump state and Tim Ryan's great candidate, but he isn't going to make that up in 2022.

U.S. Senate Passes $1.5 Trillion Gov't Funding Bill With Ukraine Aid
"So I want to get into a story here that broke late last night. The United States Senate has approved the $1.5 trillion spending bill that expands the power of the IRS and dramatically increases the size and scope of government last evening, but also it sends $13.6 billion to Ukraine. We're going to get into that. Now Senate Republicans voted for this 18 of them voted for it. Senator barrasso from Wyoming, Roy blunt from Missouri. Shelley Moore capito from West Virginia, Susan Collins from Maine, John cornyn from Texas, Joni Ernst from Iowa, Lindsey Graham from South Carolina, chuck grassley from Iowa. Kathy Hyde Smith from Mississippi, Mitch McConnell from Kentucky. Senator Moran from Kansas, Lisa Murkowski from Alaska, rob Portman from Ohio, senator Shelby from Alabama, John thune from South Dakota, Tommy tuberville from Alabama, a senator wicker from Mississippi and senator young from Indiana. Approved Nancy Pelosi's $1.5 trillion omnibus bill. What good are Republicans when we have Republicans doing the work of Democrats? So I want to focus on one part of this, which of course is us spending $13.6 billion to Ukraine. Now, I'm not going to get into whether or not we should send the money. I've already made my position clear on that. I'm going to ask a couple of questions about this. How about leaders thought this through? What does success look like with this sort of funding appropriation? What is an acceptable result? So a rational way of going about spending money, any person that we have here at NRB would ask the question before you spend $13.6 billion before you embark on a mission, you just have to say if it's the right or wrong thing to do, but also weigh the reality of pulling off that task. And the track record associated with the entity or the organization proposing it. So I have a question for all of our listeners that support sending money to Ukraine. Do you have trust in the CIA? Does mark milley and Lloyd Austin give you confidence? Because that's who we just funded. Does giving foreign aid to other countries give you confidence or does it give you skepticism? So just to be clear, these Republicans and a lot of people that are pushing for sending a to Ukraine. And it might be the right choice, by the way. I have said I don't believe it is. I could be corrected, but it's already
Is the First Amendment Truly Alive and Well in the United States?
"Is the First Amendment truly alive and well in the United States? I think many people listening to this show would have trouble believing that that is the case. And yet, our State Department, along with over a dozen other western governments, posted a joint statement on its website regarding free speech in Hong Kong. Quote, the undersigned members of the media, freedom coalition expressed their deep concern at the Hong Kong and mainland Chinese authorities attacks on freedom of the press and their suppression of independent local media in Hong Kong, read the statement. This included countries like Australia, many others across the west that have been quite impressive in their clampdown of misinformation. Now, one doesn't have to look far to find out just why exactly this is so rich. We have seen in just the last week The White House call on Spotify to censor Joe Rogan for having honest conversations with doctors that have dissident opinions from the mainstream narrative. You've got aging Canadian folk artists like Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, boycotting and pulling their songs off of Spotify. Neil Young is doubling down by the way and telling Spotify employees that they should quit before it steals their very souls. And for what? For having doctor Robert Malone, doctor Peter McCulloch, both doctors of which have been on this show, speak out about how they are treating COVID and speak out about why early treatment will save
What Is Joe Rogan's Podcast Controversy Really About?
"What's the controversy over Joe Rogan's podcast really all about? Now, Joe Rogan is, well, he's not a conservative. He is a fellow who doesn't go with the establishment. He's a fellow who asks questions. He's a fellow who likes to learn, he puts guys on his podcast, he doesn't mind putting guys from widely across the political spectrum. It's not clear what Joe Rogan's own politics are at one point I think he said he voted for why I wanted to vote for Bernie Sanders. I know that he wasn't an enthusiast of Biden. In fact, he memorably described Biden as going with Biden as kind of going on a hike with a guy with a very dim lightbulb that was about to go out. Flashlight. And this is the intolerable Ness if I can coin a word of Joe Rogan is that he doesn't play from the official, while sheet music. And this is why the left is determined to get him. He also has a wide reach of big influence the number one podcast really in the country. And so they want to bring Joe Rogan to heal. And this all started with a couple of hundred medical professionals and now some of them were just med students. This wasn't really the best and the brightest of the medical community, but nevertheless, they dash off this letter to Spotify, Joe Rogan is putting out misinformation, I guess this has to do with Rogan's interview with Malone, the virologist and the epidemiologist who is a partial inventor of the mRNA technology. And this is a guy who Malone, who's not, again, on board with the CDC on COVID. And so they want to get Joe Rogan's podcast pulled off of Spotify. And then Neil Young, the musician jumped on board and goes, I'm gonna pull my music from Spotify and Spotify is like, okay, and now others have piled in Joni Mitchell, apparently Bruce Springsteen Crosby, Stills & Nash. Now, if you notice most of these guys are like 75 year old rockers, we're not talking here about the biggest stars of music today. They've been a little bit silent about all this, but this pressure from the left for these people to join in. At one point, I saw something with the effect of the obamas are now using their leverage with Spotify to pull
Another Artist Walks Out Over Joe Rogan
"Let's talk about the bullshit that's going on with Joe Rogan. Another day, another artist threatening to pull their music from Spotify because of Joe Rogan. This time it's the artist India Ari. Like a one or two hit wonder from the 90s. I know some of you out there are gonna go, you have no idea. She's got great music. Okay, most people know one of her songs, period. I'm not saying she's bad. She's slightly more contemporary than Neil younger Joni Mitchell. Plus she's not upset about COVID-19 misinformation that people say Joe Rogan is providing, but India Henri took issue with comments, Rogan made on race. And she said, I've decided to pull all my music and podcasts from Spotify. Neil Young opened the door that I must walk through. I believe in freedom of speech, not really if you're no, no India, not really, if you're leaving.
Joe Rogan Apologizes After Backlash Hits Spotify Shares. But Should He Have?
"That. Joe Rogan, coming out an apologizing. Because, you know, Neil Young doesn't like who he has on this show. Joni Mitchell, a bunch of husband musicians. I'm sorry, they remember were great at one time, but you know, they've seen their day. This is kind of Joe Rogan's day, but they don't like it. He's getting so much attention. They think somehow he's brainwashing the public even though I still say it's a free country, and guess what? You can listen to Joe or you can listen to Rachel maddow.

Because it is a free country, and you ought to be able to listen to anything you want to listen to, but no, no, not if Neil and joanie have anything to say about it. And the duke and duchess or whatever the heck they're going by these days out there in LA hanging out with Oprah and all their pals, they somehow were suggesting that they might pull their content off a Spotify too, so Spotify clearly freaked out, freaked out enough to maybe freak Joel out and Joe whom I like a lot. And by the way, he's done a ton for the freedom of speech and he's done a ton for podcasting in general. I think one of the reasons I have a podcast here today and you're listening to it is in part because he was so instrumental in this genre. So not to take anything away from that, but I sure don't like it when I hear stuff like this. Listen. So if this you're off, I'm sorry. And if you enjoy the podcast, thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you, Spotify. Thank you all the supporters and even thank you to the haters, because you still need the haters. I get it, right? They give them more attention, but did he really have to say I'm sorry to everyone? They shouldn't be one bit sorry. Again, it's a free country. You can listen to Joe and you can listen to everyone else. And look, he's not a news organization. He's not pretending to be a news organization. He's a former M and a fighter.

"Don't know what you're also say. I'm just gonna be fully honest there. We've done other discography have more songs that have more albums. you know. Metallica law. But this one was harder because i feel like every album just had such a weight to terms of artistry intent. I i definitely a casual listen in fully capturing the way that i could with italica down all i don't think metallica's that good example. I think both of those artists the the songs are dense away and like in their own way also and this is sort of a thing. I've noticed recently. This is sort of off topic. But in studying for this podcast. The simpler the structures of the songs are the easier it is to like. Get a snap judgment feel for the album and together snap judgment feel for how feel about the artists is a whole whereas when you have these complexities it really takes time to digest and even for your arm opinion warm those initial enhance i to be frank. I didn't even really know how i felt about. Hissing of summer laws. Until like yesterday. And i think that he tried to fly. I put it lower just because it just there. Is this complexity to it. That just made it hard access to like story. My brain i was. I was genuinely surprised. So delighted honestly to see you. Defend era is hard as you did too. I was so happy ended up that high. Because i thought that was going to get cut early onset show thrill so. And that's i mean i i'll say the exact same thing about his year. I remember vividly. The first time with we were just thriving and you. You're putting joni on random. Yeah when we were right getting started and the title track has your came on and i was like. I can't connect with this all it was. I think it was something about the way that it's it's the soundscape. And she has fully fallen out of any sort of like composed rhythmic vocal. Melody is very she almost. It's it's some but it's it's a spoken word sort of rhythm in very conversational. And so i was like this is this is so long. I don't know if i can get with it. And then by like my fourth time during the song is like this is gorgeous. This study the my favorite things. I've ever heard lake. I could put some of those jerry men measles telling you got them. Germs a line from two motel room by god. The canyon only needed to verse seven How many big songs that has on it What would it really like about all. These sounds that you picked out i. Evan is at this. Particular trump of her career is such a slow and subtle and gradual progression. That if he listened to these albums in order yours don't notice for making that shift from culture rock to jazz but if you dialogues masan to a seagull followed by a major like molly hundred percent and that was i didn't know she had that side to her. I had been completely not exposed to that at all. And so getting digging into that for the first time was very surprising and again i think i think just knowing that that's what i was getting into would've have helped prepare more for her origin digesting it. I love that side of her. Now that i've had been able to spend time with it. Yeah any other thoughts feelings story. Love this lady. She such a bad fucking lady and at a time when it was not easy to be about us but all. She doesn't have the thing that i would love to just briefly touch on is how incredible it was that she was through just her actions were also through her lyrics. Just walking feminists lock. Yes and not not needing to. I don't know that she ever explicitly said like i'm a feminist but it's just so utterly clear through her world you her storytelling that she is like. I am not going to put any single portion of my happiness behind it to sacrifice for a man and and there's so many songs that are just about her just living her freedom and do the things that she wants to touring your yourself and glenn on epic road trip by herself exactly and just doing it all in and fronting jazz band and dislike it. Just really think that. That's another reason why she connects with people now is because she just was so genuinely strong independent woman. Yeah she's one of the original life fucking boss veges back when it wasn't a quilting bostitch and agendas. I like a lot of the boss as you look back on. Now you're like oh yes. She was the fish that was full but people knew that about joni then like people respect off her. Then you're like all your bosses. Okay get it. Yeah check. But also i feel like that's why when critically the male establishment probably such inter for that too or just how dare this woman writing her own songs being this independent person in the industry is.

"Unknown. Mobile was viewed and the thing is to include. Her voice sounded closer to like. I would say like christine beefy. You know so didn't out announced that is the unfortunate of the transition from seventy in the eighties. Is that very very. few artists. Were able to make that transit ads custody in my humble opinion and having some interesting did did itsel while ray like you think about the police youtube all you to that transition into but like any also they adapted to it where like other people succumb to it and hearing some of the journey eighty. She definitely succumbs. Kids do and hammy that synthesizer. Let me see what i can do on now. I mean she was using synthesizers before any of them yet. This is maybe why. She thought she could do it. But anyway she also doesn't do that with peter. Gabriel on that album and is not good and like there's a couple other if the album is good. I listened to it. I tried. I won't i won't lie. I skipped after about ninety seconds of most of the songs. They actually will say her ninety one album which i'm blanking on the name of think it's late night ride home or something like oh on the is actually say right. Now good you pull it up. Let's see right home. Yeah yeah know that now. I'm really surprised me. I only listen to like one and a quarter times. Because i had other things to focus on this week but i did. I really enjoyed. What is hearing their single coming from the cold. Got some spin on alternative radio at the time. And i feel like i've maybe heard it before even but this is a solid track. It's a nice vibe. There's definitely some things. I think that the the ninety five maybe a little better agree yeah. It's also interesting to how i feel like. We're in almost revisionist era too. Because i have a feeling that because music criticism was learning white male dominated for the longest time a couple of years ago and powers of npr. She did list of the best albums by women And it's just kind of a fuck you to every other lists that was out there but just like women. Creators women bands women everything. What are the best albums by women. Number one was blue by joni mitchell and recently on the most recent rolling stone list of the five hundred greatest albums of all time the rejected a couple of things around most notably a beatles album is not the number one spot that now goes to what's going on by marvin gaye and for all of the weird shit that they did the johnny seventies. They put blue number three. I mean i. i'm pretty sure. They also like hold industry people and like didn't go by that but took it into account. And i think that may have had a a hand in that rising the ranks because it's also very much even as much as it wasn't a commercial success as much. I feel like it's very much musicians. Alvarez other sessions for the summer light Only was the food. I find like another couple facts. I remember finding out that bjork's favorite joni. Mitchell album is don's daughter when she's in our black face moment wonder when the rest of the romanian after the side cast. Everybody's y it's been talked about. But i just never been ver- at have you seen the scandal and i'm you know i'm envisioning the cover on like doesn't seem that there's a black dude. There's joni mitchell there's little white kid bureau. The black dude is joanie exactly. And that's the reason. I really debated doing that as the opening joke of the of the podcast stupid. Listen get will. Generally i think part of it too was just the fact like listen. We're going to talk about it anyways. They don't think we should shy away from it to as much as we love joni and i do love joni. That's an unfortunate part of her career and that yeah it can't. It can't really be ignored. But i think if you asked her about it now i would like to think that she would may be viewed in shoot. Actually address like yeah. I looked up. That was a bad idea. Exactly all i thought it was seen by our guys time off. I was even encouraged me and it wasn't anything and so feel like i feel like that's again part of her legs. We have to reckon with but again now that blue suddenly become training into this thing it has more momentum and more power than ever has before which is kind of striking honestly kind of amazing. I sent you guys. I'm not sure if you had a chance to listen to today. They did little ep. Release of demos and unruly songs from the sessions to which included river with french horns which included a to sanju recorded for it that weren't included including the urge for Wanting or relievers remaining which was one of the songs that she ever wrote for someone else but she was gonna recorded for blue and it just never Never made it on there too. So there's still a lot of things happening with their. I hope that we have another moment with court spark and i hope that when the fiftieth anniversary comes around from other fucking kissing a summer long schools realize that to them such a fun discovery. This week though. I will say album. And i'm so happy. We thought pronouncing we really fight parents. Tearing not tally. Is i fight on this podcast. I.

Like all anabel remains a lot more sense you know in other than other songs too. And eventually while she tried to track down eventually gave up in nineteen ninety.

And they were able to have a good relationship Until they had a falling out which from what i understand involved in instant which they got angry and joni slatter and then they had a kind of edward estranged for about ten years or so and then have been gradually.

But we'll see if that happens to the she was on her twitter talking about The fiftieth anniversary of blue. And how she feels like. It's so great. Thank people will get it now because the thing is like a comic as an album as it is it wasn't like a huge seller. He is actually one of the. I think the most incredible parts of joni mitchell and her legacy is that truly. Her legacy is so much longer than her commercial success and she almost is having just as much mersal success. Now as she was having in the early nineteen seventies Because it truly. I mean especially if you look at spotify numbers the songs that have hundreds of streams on spotify or not hits for john mccain half of thousands of you this is actually a really fascinating points that i noticed so in nineteen ninety-six talent when she when she put out her greatest hits album that was just called hits and then she put out a companion piece. That was just called mrs her favorite de cuts so as all of the most famous from popular songs de cuts. A case of you was on mrs white in one thousand nine hundred ninety six.

Something deep within did i was like i must seek this out and listen to more of it and that is how i fell in love with folk song. Joni mitchell of like. I discover all on my own Gutless two very different version came out. And i heard that song for the first time i was like oh. This is what heart breaks. I mean you're all dead now. That's that's a very probable help to its rise. The i also remember that during the late two thousands. When when pitchfork was at its peak i remember at least a two different like big indie names at the time covering a haze of you and it also is now being included on like lists of the greatest songs ever written and things like that and to hear. My dad's say that was not the case forty years ago. Yeah it has had its profile as a song has completely changed. Yeah and similarly. I'll always remember the first time. I heard big yellow taxi. Oh was fucking counting. Crows ranch for two thousand like that. You think that that's who wrote that song like earlier. This agos researching this podcast. Work with some younger millennials. Younger than millennial millennials and they were a counting pro song yellow taxi game on those fish. Straight join middle som- that kind of covered and lots of other people have covered. I think she'll probably the late. Ninety grid is sample by janet jackson and the great song to god leads. Gone drink you to a i. of course i'll always remember my dad like either digging out or he might have even had to go. Buy this album on cd to be like. This is the version you should know even kind of gross fan. Although also i guess she had a genuine hit offer live album miles of aisles with the live version of big yellow taxi. Better than the The original journey version but not enough to make miles vials alive album gold which was pretty solid. They'll say they're the question is dealer Limited ourselves wisely do this era of nineteen sixty eight to nineteen seventy nine. Hey listen to any joni. After that will bit by not invested enough to stay. You know what i mean like. I did my toe in my opinion there. You're doing She did so much. Hanjani some orchestra l- album renditions of songs. Like i remember someone writing up to the aged voice singing both sides now with enormous. I have heard that. That's the most popular rhinos that even more than the judy collins version. I think the the most now rans s. She understands that. This truly can't people size. But also i had to because i reviewed this box set of hers afford except joni hat and has basically like memories and photographs. It was this idea of like kind of her curing her own greatest hits across four discs. Okay cool so there's a couple obvious at some deeper cuts on there which interesting then of all the things she decided she picked dancing clown. And i don't know if you know anything about mitchell's eighties albums. But she you know octagon drums synthesizers all that stuff. She did those things joni.

Guess apparently James taylor left her because he also she sings on You've got a friend at which i didn't play a lot of live leon thrives believe all. I want carry california. Yeah though.

Another way to see his his wife tonight is about okay guys like he was taking your home to his family like take that next step but he was also developing a really nasty heroin problem and she was like she was at an airport having connecting play on her way to north carolina. Easiest bam literally like. I can't do this and gone back. On north carolina north carolina lack come on and raise up will and also i guess she. She gets faxed graham nash when she was vacationing in greece. To let them know that it was over as well or something. Yeah i urged yeah. I think he's remarkable remarkable. I'm exploit that. They all seek very highly of her later in life and we had a great time much happy to so happy to and now gonna play the song that she wrote for this trivia for her i like genuinely but also have pointed out. She was an innovator at the time because so many female songwriters they were able to be artists in their own right. I talked to my parents about stu and rolling stone of how basically slut shaming her. And it's like in my stepmom. She's like well. Did they say do the same thing about carole king deputy contemporary. And i'm like no. I had to really think about why carole king wasn't slut shamed like daddy think odd you may not have had as many high profile romances bill. So she's been writing pop song since the nineteen fifty. She's been in that machinery for a while so when she finally came around with an album with my seventy one's tapestry the legendary record that is it was just here. I am as an artist and there was an announcement overnight. Success that can happen from there but she hit was to neil. She wasn't a public figure. In the way that joni mitchell was and so. I feel like she kind of may of airbnb innings. Oh yeah now. This couch was like oh. It's been around for a while. She she raised on the raisons. Not only is like everybody wanna fucker. But when she's w she's down with you and she moves on my impression from all. This is really sad that it had to end. It was really like bitter sweet for about. I loved him a lot like it was time.

I like unspecified so okay. Let's listen while pulling there's the there's the album cover with you know. The the speech bubbles speech mobile's besides joni mitchell in black face as a black man in her black character fan. I no. that's fine at evan. At the top of every main tasks episode makes a if you're nasty joke and this week's was unfortunately the name of her black face character that with her jazz friends reckless daughter. His name is art. Nouveau no no and on the album cover. He can coated saying things. Have we found this. Leave this leave is the worst part well first of all. There's also the worst part is also a weight. So that right there. I mean it. Tommy joni mitchell's and black based in a worst part. That's a small that's joni. Mitchell is an indian girl. No hell and all my question. Exactly how could you do this. Joni on on the sleeve of the actual record. There's another photo of art. Invo and i believe it says we're having a hard time finding at the moment but it says Believe muslims muslims had spelled with uh us. Yeah it's all i see. It's yeah so and it's one of those things where there is also photos of her going into black face at parties to and the thing is that it kind of speaks to a little bit. Anything that we're gonna use this as a way to contentiously. Jump off your. I think part of the reason why she felt came with it. And it's kind of glossed over with her legacy because mitchell. She made a lot of great albums. But now i know this shit. I'm having to wrap my brain right. It's hard to know when i feel like the january. After corden spark was a success after helped me made the top ten. She still herself opening from of other male rock artists like bob dylan contemporaries of hers at the time to What she wasn't really a big fan of as well and that's part of the reason why she also started moving towards jazz. Jazz musicians loved her and i. This is just speculation on my part. But i have a feeling that just being around black jazz musicians as well and her like just being friendly with them. There is a sense that maybe like she describes. This idea of this character remaining gets a pass. It's still ill advised. You gotta get my rewarding. The twenty twenty one is in. it's deeply Not cool deeply. Not good but at the same time. I kind of want to pivot off that to talk about the retreat that she had from rock criticism as well because Before we get into her paramore's which allie really wants to talk about as well. Allie credible managing mental has got up. But she also has kind of gone. The thing is that when she way when she started dating graham nash. That was kimball. Bit of a power couple. Bromance put her up there in the headlines. The point where when she started breaking through rolling stone didn't argo calling her rock and roll old lady Which is not great and also didn't list the diagram list of all the famous people that she has sex with israel which one of the things which is just the her businesses. I right but the thing that being interested in it and then being a rock magazine kind of reporting on these little towns Just one thing is like people mandated that it's another thing entirely to have rolling stone. Yeah and also do they do that ship for the male musicians who also slip all these people. I don't see the cover story. On the fact that entire ban managed to date the same woman like like league. And these david graham nash. Yeah i don't know what james taylor. Yeah onion band with each other and you like date in fall in love with like they didn't just like normally call that fleetwood mac to see era but i'm saying that the double standard is rampant. And then let's not forget. Rolling stone then went ahead and turn around and called the hissing of summer lawns quote the worst album of the year without from his. Just been like if unlike journey.

I'm an powers now back to my conversation with brand carlisle about joni mitchell's blue streaming is a strange thing and i'm sure you as an artist probably sometimes look at the most popular songs of yours that are streaming you're like really but the most popular song streaming from blue is a case of you and i. I think i can understand that. I have my opinions about why that might be true. But i wonder what you think. It is about a case view that appeals to so many people. Why is that the one that stands out. I liken it to hallelujah. it's so specific in what it saying. I mean hallelujah is biblically historically accurate. But what how means to me is me coming to terms with my faith and my quietness and that tension. That's in that giant. A case of you is similar in that. It's it's so. Specific from prince. James blake to to me. You're watching. These american artists squeezed their eyes shut and sing. O canada like they mean true. Civic minute means a different thing to each of us and it's because like when you are interpreting when you're singing and you're telling the truth.

"Choose her name. She sued to koala green and the winters cannot sure and then she didn't talk to me. I think she wanted me to sit with an album. We listen to the whole thing. Silence and i suddenly realized like if this is the next stage of my life in love of. I'm moving on to some other realm. I need to reconsider. What would tough radical vulnerability i mean. on your tour virtual tour for your memoir. I believe you did an event with brennan brown. Did you. Not i think so. I wonder if you think of blue. In connection to their ideas bilby that bernez expressing her work. I do and i also take comfort. The fact that. I'm not the only one that got so uncomfortable. Joni mitchell's vulnerability that i. I turned my back on it for a decade. It's radical in. It's not supposed to be taken lightly. And so i'm glad that it found me when it was supposed to find me and it became such a cornerstone of urine catherine's relationship. Do you have a day or an evening. An anniversary and listening to blue. Do you share that with her. Well now you share much more joni experience which we can talk about with her but have you sat with her recently and listen to blue with catherine we. If i'm really honest with you we listened to basically every day. So it's on all the time it's just one of those things where it's a constant rotation on our house and mix good may dance play with the kids and they know all the words in. It's like it's such an soundtrack in the near vivar are of it. That's so romantic one. Now it's like it's jira in. It's the hissing of summer lawns. Ladies of the candidates for the roses. It's it's all of them now. Blue was the work though of janis that you decided to take on you know. We're both from washington state and we know a lot of mountaineers and this is sort of like the seven summits you know. This is like all of them in one year climbing the mountain. So so let's talk about that experience you as a musician. Approaching blue and i got to witness Some of the rehearsals and the performance. And you know. I have many questions. But let's just like hone down to the essence like the process of making that decision and then kind of moving toward the moment of your your genuine triumph when you performed a journey. Was there by the way if you know you saw in the rehearsals like what. I went through and the honor in the anxiety. And i'm such a paean w northern sociopath. I was bursting into tears. It was something. I don't know why i wanted to do it until i until it was finished. You know. I thought it was important to do. Because i had just seen johnny turned seventy five and i saw all these people interpret from her entire catalog in the whole arc of her of her career. But i thought about blue and what it was to me and what it was what it is to so many people Said holding up a mirror in front of themselves in coming to terms with with themselves. And i thought man maybe could just like as a gift just learn blue not try to reinvent the wheel and obviously not try to be joan either. Because that's not physically possible. But get as close as i could remove as much as possible and just give people blue you know and that's what i did. That's what i that's what i wanted to do. But everything joni. It was such a journey. It was an amazing journey and it was an amazing night. And i think people did feel that gift and one of the things you did was put together an amazing group of musicians including the hanser outs. Twins were part of it of course but also john coward who led the group. And who has worked with joni in the past along with brian blade and russ kunkel played and that leads to me asking you about the instrumentation on this album and your insights into it because of course rests. Plays drums on the songs on this album. That have drums. There's three songs on the that have drums so to this. Album's instrumentation is very particular. It's spare also carefully arranged. I think and how'd you hear it the arrangements. I think i imagined that people that don't listen to it every day here in how they remember it at thais who left you. Don't think there's only drums on three songs because it's so groovy in there so much rhythm in it but it's even more than you think because you never felt like it was lacking or naked either. It's just kind of perfect album. Where until you start deconstructing. The layers in the instrumentation. You realize that..

"Welcome back gop. Senator joni ernst republican at a cross roads within her party. She sharing the personal journey that led her to a life of public service in her memoir daughter of the heartland my owed to the country that raised me. Please welcome senator. Joni ernst nice to have you here and joy has the first question. Yeah thanks. Whoopi welcome senator. It's nice to see republican on our show once in a while not not they. Don't wanna come on the show. I don't know why anyway so you heard us talking about bipartisanship before. Aoc says democrats should stop negotiating with republicans and mitch. Mcconnell says the era of bipartisanship is over. Tell me senator. Is this the end of our country as we know it. It is not joy. And i'm happy to report that and i think that there is a lot of bipartisanship that is happening on the floor of the united states senate and it's not something necessarily that the media will pick up on and that the media necessarily wants to follow but i'm an example of that i have been ranked as one of the most bipartisan senators of the past. Twenty five years of either party and we know because we want to do the right thing for our constituents that the only way we get things done is if we are working together. So i have a lot of really great colleagues. Were working on a number of different Issues that are very important to our constituencies. But i believe in the greatness of our nation i believe in the greatness of the people that represent their states in the united states. Congress colo- senator. I'm such a huge fan of yours. And i'm so happy to see you here on the show as well Vice president harris was in guatemala. This week telling people seeking asylum in the us not to come warning that they will be sent back. She is also taking heat for not visiting our own border yet saying she'll go at some point even some democrats think that she's handling the crisis wrong. I've she sounded like a moron when she was talking. To lester holt. Her nervous laugh is making me nervous that she doesn't know what she's doing. What do you think of all of it. Well i really do think we have a humanitarian crisis occurring at our southern border and that we do need to make sure that immigrants are not flowing up through mexico to the southern border Without going through the proper processes and in the past administration we did have policies put into place where if they were seeking asylum from another country they could apply within their home countries for that asylum in the united states. We worked with mexico to make sure that they were housing. Those immigrants in mexico so they could go through the process to enter into the united states through the proper channels Vice president harris. I hope that she does visit. The southern border vary very soon. This is imperative and i think the longer she waits the harder it is for her to explain why she hasn't gone to view this crisis herself and form her own opinions about what's going on so i would just encourage her to do it very very soon. And let's figure out the solution. We have to work with these other countries. Obviously but we do need to secure the border and make sure that there is a proper vetting process. Senator i have another question. The majority of republicans so cling to the delusion that donald trump won the presidential election because of some false voter fraud claims and and trump himself reported reportedly believed believes he'll be reinstated as president by august. Talk about a moron. Now the eric called the but in real life the so called arizona or are a laughing stock we all know that he shut down his blog supposedly due to lack of interest and last week he was upstaged his pants. Why still hit your wagon to him. Senator can still sway an election. I mean isn't it time to drop this guy. He's a loser. He lost the election. He was impeached twice. He's a bad guy. In in terms of helping the republicans as well as the nation and the world joe a joy. And let's just start with this. Joe biden is president. Okay i i ac knowledge that and what we do want to do is make sure that the elections were secure. And i do talk about the fact that i was a county commissioner of elections in my book i started as a county auditor doing local county elections and i truly do believe in our election system. You know if states want to run audits. That is truly up to them if they want to do that. And and just to prove or disprove any you know any thoughts that might exist out there. But i as a subject matter expert when it comes to local elections. I have not seen any evidence where this election would be overturned. I haven't been presented with that. So joe biden is our president I think that we are at a point now where our nation needs to heal together. We were just talking about bipartisanship. I think this is the perfect time for us to start working together on the things that americans believe to be important and find those bipartisan solutions. I think we can all do that. but again i. I haven't seen anything that would prove a change in presidency senator We've spoken hear a bunch about cancel culture Which president or former president obama warned can go overboard sometimes. And you say liz. Cheney was a victim of it. Can you explain that to me. Well yes and. I do admire liz. Cheney very much and while there are a number of things that i may not agree with her on you for her to come forward stand up and say what she feels is important to say is okay you know people may not like it justice. I may not like a oh see and some of the things that she says out there but for everyone to try and silence her voice. She has a voice. And it's okay to use it. I think that's why we're all elected is is to use our voices so i think we see too much of this across the country anymore. But what i would say though. Is that when you use your voice. You do need to be respectful of one another. We can certainly disagree on policy. We can disagree on different issues and how we arrive at those solutions. But i do think it's time that we tone down the political rhetoric. We recognized that. We're all human beings and that we have various constituencies that we need to represent and certainly do that in a respectful and dignified manner. Senator we're going to take a quick break and we're gonna.

How're you doing during. I've been asking all my guests. How are you doing these. See strange times I find it really hard to believe that. It's been nine months since governor murphy. Shut us down. The first time and i will say pivoting to all remote learning which we did for the last. Three months of the school year was really tough. It was very challenging from a technology perspective for the students and for me. But you know. I think we moved them forward. I think that we had to just shift the paradigm as to what our goals were School has been you know. It's it's quite a challenge but the kids make all of the effort worth it and my colleagues are outstanding in my administrator searcher ethic As far as a personal level Spent a lotta time at the beach the summer. It was a lot more credited at the jersey shore with people. Not traveling and i have kept only people. I've kept in my bubble besides my husband or my daughter's an anna And the boyfriends with whom they reside and thank god for that. Because i would have lost my mind if i did in the beginning when i stayed away from my children. You haven't you being a dad. I'm sure you understand. I i i totally do joni Last summer not like twenty nineteen. My son was supposed to get married. And abou- four five weeks before the wedding. Themes i added that maybe this was a bad thing and so that was a very tough break up and so he moved home. 'cause they had moved they were living together and about december january. He started thinking okay. You know i've been here six seven months. It's probably time to start getting a place. And so he was. He says you know i'll kinda take it slow. And then march happened and everything shut down and he said i am so glad i didn't get my own place. 'cause he said he said i would have packed everything up and come to your house. He says i wasn't gonna sit at my apartment by myself so so it was awkward because My wife is retired. And i spent a half middle of march. Two almost the middle of may Working from home. And so i was in the living room. My son was in the computer where i am now. And my wife's like i'm stuck in the better like you know what. What can i do because you guys are on calls.

Our p coach was the civics teacher but You know he talked a lot about iraq. I remember sticky this that you know. Sometimes he was talking about.
