Dr. Marty Makary Discusses Covid-19 Gain-of-Function Research
"Is a compelling reason for us just on a scientific and medical basis to really know more about the origins of this virus isn't there Well, just like in, um, politics. There's Republicans and Democrats in science and virology. We have pro and anti gain of function. Research in the community is split. And the origins now and now that we understand what happened, and it's pretty clear. We have to bury the idea that gain of function Research has value. You know that Fauci has been out there parading that around in lectures around the country. Other scientists who are actually very good people. Good scientists. They have sort of underestimated the risk of creating a pandemic through this research. Now we have to officially end all gain of function research. And it's very obvious what happened over there, can you? It's obvious to you, but we still have a whole lot of deniers out there, most of them with advanced degrees Doctor just to follow up on this very specific issue here because Anthony Fauci has gone on record when challenged like why are we spending American tax dollars on gain of function research overseas in China, he said. It would have been irresponsible for us to not participate in that program. Can you respond to that idea? Well, Tony had a bad week last week. I think he He? You know he's holding on to this idea, and this is exactly what we have to officially dispelled forever. And that is that there is value in characterizing Corona viruses in animals. That was what the NIH grant was for. That was what the research articles cited and thanked the NIH for funding. That's all documented and that's what's you know published out there, so it would be. It's going to be very hard to explain that away. Why there's a million viruses in the world. Why do we need to figure out What their seat gene sequences are and how they mutate when if they cross over into human beings, which about 1% of them have Then we sequenced and we can sequence the DNA of the virus in about one hour, So let's just do it when it's a problem rather than risk creating a pandemic. That should be our lesson.

Rep. Jim Jordan on the Implications of Big Tech Breakup Bills
"Break up hills, which aren't those at all Like you said. They're just using that to get us on board. My fear is they're going to take that from the private sector and now enshrined that with government regulators who are going to use these big tech break up bills to then use the power of government to make sure private companies out there. Doing things against the shareholder interest. And think about how many pension funds are invested in these companies that are now going to be pressured to basically lose money and screw your pension over under the guise of big tech breakup. Yeah, we've already seen this. This play in action with what we just referred to when you had a major big tech company, the CEO of the head of that company. Communicating via email with the guy who runs a big agency who is the highest paid official in the government with Dr Fauci and Mark Zuckerberg colluding to keep information from the American people last year information that frankly, looks like it turns out to be it was the truth, and they kept the truth from us. So now we're going to say Lina Khan, who just got appointed to to chair the FTC, You know where she just got to point this week. So that's my Federal Trade Commission where all this power is going to go. Guess who she worked for. Before she went there. She worked for Jerry Nadler. David Cicilline E on the House student Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee. Do you think she really wants to make sure that that these big tech platforms don't censor Dan Bongino? So that's what this is all all about. I mean, and you're exactly right. The one of the other empty stairs chairs is, um, Democrat is Becca Slaughter, and she has said, we should use anti trust laws to stop systemic racism. What? So you're that's where they want to go with this, And that's what I fear. Let's do this. Let's let's let's change checks in 2 30 so that you take away their liability protection and let's break them up. Let's break him up. Yeah, but you've got to make sure they don't get this liability protection. So not not make not make this union between big government and big tech so they can further harm us. Yeah, a couple of additional points in

"Let's get to take away number two from this piece. Not only this dungeon. We have detailed information about China's special weapons systems, the Chinese military's operation and the Wuhan Institute and the origins of SARS Covid, too, and the Chinese government assets and sources within the United States. Challenging way has extremely embarrassing. Listen to this and damaging information about our intelligence, community and government officials. In the quote terabytes of data he's provided to the D, uh He has damaging information for those of you watching the Fox nation. Are you marvelling at my ability to multitask as I log back in the call screener here, check that out. Pretty cool. I'm talking at the same time. Kidding, Of course. Anyone can click computer mouse while docking. It's not a skill exactly. Read. That last said You're that last sentence I read. So this spy from China that's defected has embarrassing and damaging information about our for the liberals. This thing that means the United States, our intelligence, community and government officials. In the terabytes of data. Uh, Uh huh. What do you think could be in there? You know, maybe a couple weeks ago on my Fox show when I went through that whole monologue, laying out how I believe we funded a Chinese bioweapons facility in the Wuhan Institute, which is a bioweapons facility. Bio weapons. And all the liberals freaked out. Africa expenses here it you know, whatever liberals tell you a conspiracy theory should openly laugh at these utter imbeciles. Um, Like I said, I'm running out of conspiracy theories because all my old conspiracy theories
Red State Reports About Chinese Defector With 'Direct Knowledge' of Chinese Special Weapons Programs
"This guy supposedly has a bunch of information about how U. S. Government officials may have been involved in this cover up. Sounds Moya interesante to me. I know my Spanish is terrible. I'm sorry. My wife is a native speaker of Spanish. I've learned from her, but my Spanish is awful. I'm still translating in my head, but I'm working through it. Let's get the chunk here. Number one. Who is this guy? Why is China so mad that we have done Beijing way? That's the name of the spy. Yeah, This is from Red State. Red State sources confirmed that the defector is in fact, Don Jingwei. That he was in charge of counterintelligence efforts in China. He flew to the United States in mid February, allegedly to visit his daughter at a university in California. When Don Jingwei landed in California, he contacted DEA officials, Our D ir Defense Intelligence agency. And told them about his plans to defect and the information he brought with him. Young men hidden in plain sight for about two weeks before disappearing into d ia custody. My guess you won't see Don Jingwei again. This is in fact, correct than a high level counterintelligence operative from China. The highest level or one of the highest levels of that infrastructure. There has in fact affected to the United States. My guess is he is in grave danger. The Chinese Communist Party plays for keeps. We don't like them. I'll never like them, but you better respect their abilities. Because they are
Supreme Court in 7-2 Ruling Rejects Challenge to Obamacare
"It was a texas challenge to the affordable. Care act the. Us supreme court tossed out this week. From austin ashley lopez reports. The ruling came down as more. Texans are relying on the law for healthcare coverage texas attorney. General ken paxton along with more than a dozen other. Conservative states argued that the law also known as obamacare is unconstitutional. The court ruled that the states were in no position to make that case because they couldn't prove they were injured by the law. This ruling means that the affordable care act and programs like the online marketplace created by. The law will continue to offer health insurance plans to people who don't get insurance from an employer or any of the country's safety net programs according to the episcopal health foundation. More texans have enrolled for these plans through healthcare dot gov this year compared to last year. Federal data shows enrollment is up sixteen percent with more than one point.

A Big Week for Global Tech Policy
"New chair of the federal trade commission a raft of bipartisan legislation aimed at big tech and an agreement to collaborate with the european union. It's been a pretty eventful week in terms of global tech policy here to break down what all happened and what the landscape looks like going forward is our policy reporter ryan tracy. Hey ryan thanks for coming back on the show things for me okay. So let's start with the f. T. c. biden named the prominent big tech critic. Lena con as fdic chair you know. We talked about this earlier in the week. With our colleague brent kendall but remind us of the significant of khan's appointment. She's been very clear that she has concerns about the behavior of big companies in a lot of sectors tech. It's been a particular focus for her confirmation hearing she basically said everything's on the table in terms of big tech. Senators asked her a number of questions about areas where the ftc could become more aggressive in terms of looking at the marketplace for news or looking at the marketplace for a smartphone apps all these different areas where we've heard some concerns about the impact of big tech and her answer was almost invariably. Yes to those questions now. There are limits to the ftc's power but mistaken has an expansive view of what that power is and so we expect her to push those limits and so does this signal sort of shift from the obama years to the biden administration potentially signals a much more aggressive approach to antitrust policy. And that's obviously a big deal for the largest tech companies. Who are under. A lot of antitrust scrutiny. Right now and it's kind of amazing when you step back you know. They had a lot of power under the obama administration and a lot of influence and had the biden administration asked for who they would have picked to lead the federal trade commission. Liikanen think it's fair to say would not have been near the top of their list. Just given that a lot of things critical of tech companies in the past so the fact that the biden administration chose her clearly shows their influence is more limited than it used to be.

"last week" Discussed on Reset
"On their iphone. Here to talk about the arrival of digital driver's licenses is recode's rebecca. Hi awhile rebecca. Hey so what is a digital driver's license in how will this new system work. You've probably been hearing a lot over the past few months about digital vaccine passports and serve saving personal information on phones and in phone apps so you should sort of think of that as the foundational technology but this will work a little bit differently primarily. Because it's the information that would be on your driver's license so imagine an app or part of an app that contains all the information that would be on your physical driver's license. That's actually now inside your phone so it would kind of look like physical. Id but there would be potentially some big differences so instead of just a stall photo it might be that digital's license includes a moving image kind of like those live photos on your phone. So it's you know kind of a digital version of what you already have. But it's way more than a screenshot and this is kind of similar to something that we've been seeing a lot more lately digital credit cards like i've been paying with apple pay a lot more in the pandemic. What else can you do with digital wallet is. They're going to be other stuff in there too yet. It really seems like companies like apple. Want to have control over everything that would have once gone into a physical wallet. People are paying for things with credit cards that are stored digitally on their phones. People are able to open their cars now with digital apps and even going into their homes with that so basically everything is kinda being transferred and condensed into these apps. I know i've started using public transit by using a phone and things like that so people are really making that transition. Okay so just so. I'm understanding how apple pay works. I clicked the button on my phone and it scans face and then i'm able to use a credit card. Is there like a verification system or does it even work like apple pay or is it a separate app. What's the deal apple said. This is coming this fall and that it's going to be part of apple wallet. We should expect that it's gonna follow similar rules for that but right now we actually don't know that much about how it's gonna work because all we really have is. What has apple's hinted thus far we do know that apple does basically want to take over everything in the physical wallet and put it in the digital wallet. Yeah that's one thing does it. All approach now reminds me of the multi pass in the scifi movie. The fifth element. Have you seen that one now. Have you should. It's amazing. Is this just an apple or other tech companies doing it. I have to imagine google. Lots to apple is actually not even the first company to try to roll this out on google. Like you said it's also been trying to work on a system for digital driver's license and it's been releasing standards that are supposed to help that happen you know. Ibm has been trying to get digital identification rolling for quite a few years now and it's been involved with the vaccine passport system in new york and then there's this other company called idee meow which you may not have heard of but it's actually helped launch digital versions of id's with several us states already including arizona and oklahoma. So apple is a big flashy name here. But we've had companies looking into this for quite some time. We've talked on the show before about the controversy around digital vaccine passports. There's a debate about privacy and medical records given. it's a similar technology. Is there also a debate. About digital driver's licenses digital driver's licenses have not become this fixture within a culture war. That vaccine passports have become so we have had these digital driver's licenses in some respect you similar kind of technology in similar concepts to storing personal information on phones which people can sign up voluntarily for as many of vaccine passport apps workers. Well but there hasn't been this whole debate over it and there have been several states that have tried to limit or ban vaccine passports and apps like that also go forward with digital driver's licenses. That's interesting to. We'll tell me more about the case for digital driver's license wire aside from convenience. Why states like one sort of advantage of this is that it. Lets you have a bit more control over your information so say you're trying to get a drink at a bar and you need to confirm that you are in fact over the age of twenty one. It's not really necessary for you to show your personal address information like that. That might be on your id to a bartender. So for instance you could kind of just show your agent formation which is sort of a privacy plus some might argue at the same time like other people think it could potentially be more secure and harder to fake and this is something that the department of homeland security has been interested in talking by creating standards for digital versions of id's and the tsa is interested in well. But you know. I think a lot of states that are moving forward with this member. States are the entities that primarily. Give out identification cards in the united states. Want to be part of the future and sort of see this coming. Just sort of are trying to keep up with the times when i travel. I have plane tickets to go in there and concert. Tickets apple wallet is sort of like you even more useful to physical wallet because there is an infinite amount of space and moving stuff from say like an email into apple wallet is becoming increasingly easy right. Yeah i'm imagining that. You are going up to the tsa officer and the tsa officers not only is looking at your digital license to make sure that you're meeting this identity requirement and you're also ending up using apple to access your boarding pass for the plane as well also really a lot is ending up in your phone. I am all for streamlining the interaction with the. Tsa anything to make that it would be awesome so if the tsa is involved. Does this bring us closer to having like a federally issued identity card. That's not passport. So one of the weird things about the way the. Us works with ideas is that we have states issuing cds and state driver's licenses but then we also have the federal government setting standards for what those ideas should look like nationally. So if you know what's happening with. Real i d. That's an example of this so it does kind of get us closer to that and you know at the same time we have all of these companies which obviously want to have their version of this are providing a framework that would exist on a national level or at least across several states of a digital version of the idea as well so i think we are kind of getting closer to that. Even those states are the primary agencies that deliver these identification cards. So if you didn't want more apple or google in your life these digital driver's licenses are not for you. Yeah well you could probably just stick with your physical licensed as much as possible or burn it all live in the woods. Sure you mentioned privacy. Can you tell me a little bit. More.
"last week" Discussed on 31 Thoughts: The Podcast
"About minor hockey. Let's now talk about junior hockey and specifically the ontario hockey league and one player in particular. He's the son of an ex any chiller. an ex. Oh l. or for that matter as well he is and repair it Whose father nathan played in the nhl and the oh l. He's a defense own. Sound attack right now. He's playing hockey in slovakia because there is no ontario hockey league season comma yet. There are many people. And i'm in that camp. I suspect you might be as well. Who believe there will be some type of. Oh l. season it seems as if the winds are blowing towards a twenty four game Twelve and april twelve and may and then a best two out of three playoff format and that's the season for the. Oh l. but as of right now there is no league. There is no start date. There is nothing other than hope. And that's what andrew parrott has to the point where he wrote a letter and started a petition and got a number of his colleagues in the. Oh l. to sign it just to let various levels of the provincial government in ontario and the ontario hockey league self aware of how they are feeling. Give us your quick thought on this story before we broadcast the interview here with andrew. Perritt i think the we all are hopeful that this is going to happen as you said a bit later on in april and may but i think if your a sixteen to twenty year old young man and especially if you're draft eligible and there is the possibility the draft doesn't get moved. It's very tough to hear. Wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait and wait some more while the other two leagues or playing and you know who i really feel bad to all those kids in who play in british columbia whose teams are not able to play right now while the around them is going it's brutal. It sucks like there's no other way to say it and you know i give andrew a lot of credits not easy to stick your neck out there but there's going to be a lot of people who are going to own wine and i hope they pay it back to him. I hear you. this is a A brave move by this young hockey player here is andrew parrott on thirty one thoughts. The podcast enjoy. We're very pleased to be joined by a young man who stayed up very late to accommodate this podcast and we thank him for it. He plays the own sound attack of the oh l. He is andrew parrot who joins us from slovakia andrew before we get to the reason why you're here give us via the story of how you ended up in this cova d- season. How did you end up playing in slovakia soa teammate of mine carter robertson actually came over here so kinda talk to him about it. Got the inside scoop. Text my agent just to see if it was a possibility and he ended up making it work. I'm out here with h. k. martin in the slovak to league and it's been a really good experience so far. How's the hockey. It's a bit different with the wider rank. Obviously but it's it's good now. I know carter and i know his family quite well. How did carter. Fair and slovakia be honest. He fared really well. He did really well over here. E- told me that. He enjoyed his time to in that his team enjoyed them over here too and actually kind of opened a lot of is over here for himself in the future. Jeff you sound like you're like buying that you want a different answer. I'm just waiting for someone to rip torn. Carter like i know him well. I know his parents really well His dad jeff and michelle are are friends of mine. And i was just hoping andrew that you'd rip on them a little bit carter's one of my best friends that'll do. I can do that. I gave it a shot. Oh well over you elliot. So andrew the reason we have you on the podcast. Is you sent out a letter last week up petition. And what the best way to do it is to have you explain it. What exactly did you do. And what were you hoping to accomplish. So i was actually on the phone with a team mate of mine mark willie at the time who was also over here playing vodka and we're just talking about how because we're really good with our teammates and talking back home with them. We were just talking about how guys are struggling and everything. So i kinda just started writing my thoughts and feelings on the paper. Didn't really think anything would come of it and actually showed my mom and a couple of people. I respect very well in the hockey world. They go wow you you actually wrote that very well you should maybe do something with it so kind of just try do express in the best possible way. The feelings i felt just throughout this and not being able to play and express teammates feelings as well kind of get the message out there and So i showed my teammates. I obviously to see what they felt. They felt similar feelings as well and they also agree that i should do something with it. So then i. I i try to just keep it with petition. As players only just to see how many players we could get to sign off on to see if there was a lot of players felt somewhere way. We ended up getting a hundred forty-six players in first twenty four hours which i thought was amazing and the whole point of the letter in my opinion was just to raise the awareness of how important seasons to the players in how much guys have been struggling. Not being able to play and watch other guys play right now and we just wanted to be hurt ourselves because a lot of people are speaking up about how they feel and i thought it was just important that as players not being able to play that we got our own perspectives out there so everyone knew how we felt as well. I know that it's tough for all players. But the one part and i'm really glad you included this because you know in in a lotta ways. This is the group of players that a lot of people feel the most. Sorry for all of this are the over. agers Guys that have played their last game in the. Oh l. if there's not a season at all the idea that you played your last game without knowing it. I'm sure is a tough one. You know there was some thought not that long ago. And i don't know where the conversation went in the league but there are some general managers who have proposed adding another overage year. So won't just be for twenty year olds it'll be for twenty one year olds. I don't know you have three twenty one year olds on your team to complement three twenty year. I'm not sure how they would do it. And i'm not sure that falls. But but i'm really glad that you included them because that's generally a group that people don't about enough. I don't think and we don't hear about enough. So i know a lot of people that that read your letter and saw your petition. Felt particularly strong about you. Know the fact you included the as. Yeah obviously i've carter robertson as a really close friend of mine too. And i talked to him a lot all the time and he was expressing how he felt as an overage. 'cause he was saying a lot of guys get contracts there over eight years whether it's american league. Nhl on you look at guys. Just last year and early on my team brady. Lyle had an exceptional year. Gone overage contract with providence. He's doing really well over there..

"The players are really involved. That's the other thing here. You know someone sent me a zoom interview where an nba player was telling the reporters. Hey you guys have to get in on this and the reporters are like we don't make nba player money. We can't afford. I was actually pretty funny. Hey animal how can we get. Thirty one thoughts involved in this We scrape up a couple of dollars any moment from this podcast that anybody wants about anybody wanted to pay for looper zone louis. Yeah it's it's the stuff that ammo has stashed from how we talked before the podcast actually gets going going to sell us out and retired a monaco based on that. This is something elliott. Honestly that i want to regroup on this is something. I want to talk about more. Maybe as early as next podcast. But at a certain point. When i'm when i'm more knowledgeable about it because when you mentioned it my first thought was oh and you. I kind of had that like sewing. Scooby scooby doo moment moment about it. But now that. I think about it more since saturday night and into today's podcast and talk it out and this and that resale ticket idea has has been pretty interested as well. This is something that i'm really interested in just to me is is something profoundly. Different and profoundly new. So let's let's pick up this conversation when i'm a little less ignorant about the whole thing. Sure okay from mike hass. If i'm hired at rogers for the position of junior elliott friedman what does my first day look lake. What's my first assignment if someone gets hired as junior elliott friedman. What's their day. Look like for each. I would i. Would i would say you have to replace. Senior dave amber no. I really have a tough time answering these questions. I really don't think my day is that exciting. There's a lot of checking your phone answering tax making call sending out other tax like a lot of the job. And i'm not trying to make it sound like bad because it's fine and i'm not trying to say make it sound like it's hard because it's not like i'm operating on brains or anything like that but it you it's a lot of grinding right and maybe try not turtlenecks. It's grinding and trying on turtlenecks. I think that's what it is. It's constantly about okay. who can i reach out to. Who can give me a little bit of a morsel of information. That i didn't have before that's basically what it is. And then it's listening to a lot of kevin be exa ripping everything you're doing. That's the fun stuff.

Nobody stopping that and the avalanche lead one. Nothing on those shoulders up to mac attack. Here's what i what. I love about mckinnon. It's like every now and then he just reminds everybody. You know like you'll fall out of the conversation around. The top player in the game is flavor of the month and someday is awesome matthews for a while and it's connor mcdavid and other players are making noise and then nathan mackinnon does something like that just to remind everybody it seems like like. Hey over here i'm in the conversation. Might just be number one. Well one thing. I do believe jefferson is i do think this whole conversation about the voting is about is a lot about nathan mackinnon in what sense while just the he's not going to get enough love because mcdavid matthews are getting so much attention and you'll normally there's more american base voters than there are canadian base voters by a slight amount. I think i figured out last week. I think it was like eighty two or something like that. But when you separating them into divisions all of a sudden you've got a lot more canadian voters in their division than any other division and a couple of cases including the one colorado's in it. It's kind of lopsided. I do think that that's what a lot of this is about. Is you know nathan mackinnon. Getting his do. I do have to say this. I think mcdavid has been royally in hard voting. But you know i. I think you could make a real argument. That mckinnon has to not to the same level. But it's there and you know. I know that some of the people that have raised the issue about the voting this year. Mckinnon is the guy that they're kind of talking about we pause for a second here elliott and just bathe in the glory. That was just the visuals of minnesota in los angeles on saturday night. Oh beautiful house spectacular. Did that look the green with the yellow with the purple like it was beautiful on saturday nights like to the point where. I didn't even mind that the ice was white. That's how gorges thought the whole thing. I was gonna wonder when i was waiting for that. No those jerseys between the wild and the kings. They were spectacular.

"The first time this has happened with jordan bennington. He has a fuse. And you know. What did we learn about him. A couple of years ago we learned that this is a guy who marches to his own drummer. This is a guy who argued with martin brodeur about his place in the game. This is a guy who believed in himself when his own organization really wasn't sure it believed in him. And this guy with a fuse and you go back to april two thousand and eighteen. He was actually on loan to the bruins team in providence. Yep and in a playoff series as he's skating off the ice he punches denic martell at the end of the first period in gestures at the fans then a few months later. He's playing for san antonio and while they're getting blown out by the texas stars. He slashed joe less barabbas. He was ojected and then threatened to fight the entire texas bench. You know this is the way. He is wired. This is who jordan. Winnington can be from time to time and i guess he was just incredibly frustrated with the way he was playing. You know but we've seen this before jeff. He's going to have these moments from time to time. He's got a lot of hextall in him. He's got a lot of hextall in and in that he is an elite level goaltender allah ron hextall specifically in nineteen eighty seven. To which i believe you are referring. That game was flat out fund. We mentioned the san jose sharks last week. I did wanna park some time talking about the blues. Let's get there now. Well first of all we should mention that doug armstrong has made it very clear that he's going to extend jordan bennington right now until it's done it's not done but i don't think that's gonna change the blues minds on him at all. People are wondering okay to the blues. Not like this. I don't think that's got anything to do with it. And i'll tell you something else. I think devon dube. Nick wanted to fight him. of course he did. that's why he came out. He just saw to go after two of his own players including eric. Carlson and dubna comes out. He's the new goaltender or a great way to ingratiate yourself with your new team. Plus you know do vickers flato bigger than jordan banning meetings in his to So that added some spice to it as well. I thought dubna quantity go as well. I thought for sure he wanted to fight him. So i was on radio in saint louis on day with andy strickland. Our good friend and strick asked me said you know how in canada do you guys see the saint louis blues and i said why still looking at me like a real good team you know. They've been plagued by injuries. Low vladimir tarasenko is on his way back sooner than later. We'll get there in a second but to me. They're sort of one step beneath a gala stanley cup contender. Right now Like i'll look at you know tampa a look at boston. Throw washington into that mix. Certainly vegas Is in that conversation but to me. They look like one that at that. Second stanley cup tier. How do you see the saint louis. Blues right now. The one that really makes me concerns the injured. Paret go right. Yeah and now. He's playing injured. The last couple of weeks like a lot of guys going out of that lineup could really hurt them. You know riley being one there. Obviously tarasenko is a lethal score and he played extremely well when they won the cup. Falk has been fantastic. He's kind of rejuvenate his career. But i think perico is the guy of all their skaters. If you lose perico you lose. A i think the team really changes right with parade. Go now being out. If we don't know exactly what that is or what the timeline is. I would be concerned about saint louis ability to win and you know what whenever it's a back injury because as you've seen before back injuries can really be in a 'nigma when it comes to diagnosing or putting timelines and it can instantly change the minute you step out of bed. You could feel great when you go to bed one day and step out of bed the next morning and all of a sudden oh what i thought was going to be two weeks now. Maybe turning into two months so that would be my concern. I just look at saint louis. And i say man. The injury bug hit them hard like they have a lot of like legit high-end nhl players on the shelf or in the case of you know alexander steen retired. The gunnison injury was a tough one to watch mentioned that vlad terasenko is on his way back. I thought robert. Thomas was poised to have a breakout season. I i think that one of the things you know. You always want your young players to pop and sorta come out of nowhere and grab a top spot and for the saint louis. Blues jordan cairo. He's been that guy if you look at five on five points per sixty. He's right up to the last time i checked. He was sixth in the league. Like the saint louis blues when they won the stanley cup. No one would ever accuse them of being the fastest team in the nhl much like the los angeles kings when they won their stanley cups. No whatever accused him of being a fast team. This was a very deliberate heavy checking team. That had good goaltending and got great performances and ryan o'reilly was outstanding and that was one of the the major parts of the recipe. The winning who then winning the stanley cup but the minute. The jordan kyros stepped on the.

I used my medical procedure. Oh week to get out of everything you remember. I had that procedure where i had to get my sophist. Guess worked on because of my food allergy and yeah they knock you out. It is a pretty serious procedure but it's also routine couple hours later. They're pushing me out of the hospital and sending your home. It's not that serious. There's no major recovery other than taking it easy for a weekend. But i used it all week. I told people. I wasn't supposed to talk much. And because of The safa guests in my job had to preserve my voice. And then i was asked people as high risk for cova. The doctor said i should avoid people at all costs while. Recover not true but it works. So i just used it to get out everything. That was great. I'd have to free weekends in a row but the funny thing is that You say it's not It's not like an invasive procedure it isn't invasive also routine you know it's like they knocked me out i get the propofol. The michael jackson drug they put you under and they trae cme so you have like a bunch of tubes down my throat and stuff but they i mean they probably the doctor prior to eight people that day and they just wheel yan huili out and it only took about an hour of the actual procedure the the other three hours just waiting and getting ready and prepping. And how long can you use that as an excuse. Well with my family i could only use it for that first weekend but with everybody else outside the house. They didn't know how serious it was. So i stretched it for all the way up until this weekend. There was like ten days of did chris enjoy using the excuse to says that she was good for. Because you know we all agreed to what we wanted to go to and didn't want to go to so so you could always use. That was one of the reasons. I loved being pregnant both times. I was pregnant. Because you guys know this i cannot hang late. I like going to bed early. I like waking up early so it was such an easy. Excuse to be like yeah. I'm not really feeling that great. I'm so tired. I'm gonna stay in. Nobody's going to doubt you. Nobody's gonna say anything to yo with asking this What do you use your excuse. How many of you guys use the morning show as your excuse to not do stuff because you say that. We have to wake up so early in the morning. Pretty let's say. But i'll i'll get out of a dinner and say like oh you know i would love to but six o'clock dinner get aid and downtown nine o'clock. I'm not getting home until ten. I usually go to bed at eight o'clock at night. You guys know me. i'm not. I'm staying up later at home that i would. If i went to that dinner do you know how. Many beds school recitals. I was able to get out of town. I can't get anything tired family. They know better because they know. I'm still up till midnight at home now. Chelsea has actually been really good where she would my wife chelsea. If i would say i'm sorry i didn't get any sleep so much prep to do. And then they all leave the house.

You understand this. You'll be fine like in twenty four hours but usually at the entire weekend. Why would a milk the hell out of it to god. It's been a week. I know but still hurts. Hurts and and the best was anytime that we would talk about it. I would have to be very careful what time i talked about Mike using it as an excuse because the times that allie was listening.

But if you don't if the people in power who continue to push this kind of thing and promote this kind of thing and then they get away with it. I like getting these individuals won't actually do that right like if you still have a politicians who are very popular Who got away with doing this and are now like i don't be in civil to me then there's just gonna keep being able to do it and finding new people to perform the actual violence If you don't solve the problem at the top The bottom will keep getting filled.

"That weren't picked up yet by the sensors and it just. It is one of the things that that did is it led to in this kind of gets into like what colts do. Whenever you've got a you're running coulter something you want to start introducing terms to your followers. That aren't used in the normal world in that creates an additional layer of separation between your followers and the outside world. And it works. You know even when there's not really a leader and that's what kind of was the negative effect of d platforming. Some of these sites is that it caused people to get more extreme and isolate themselves from society more. Because that is one of the things that can happen. Now is this argument against d. Platforming is because in part. These people laid siege to the capital. They're already pretty darn extreme. But it doesn't mean there aren't consequences to the kind of d platforming. We're seeing and one of the consequences. Is that a lot of people who were extremist. Maga- but mega nonetheless. Not nazis are now in telegram communities where actual nazis her working to radicalize them. And that's a problem and again it's not not a problem like having a site like parlor up like i just saw a thing early today where people had graft how many people on parlor made it into the center of the capitol building. So and you know that's where all of the planning took place. It's where a lot of discussion took place. People radicalized themselves into action It's one of you know it's a problem. That was a problem we can talk about. What should be done about it. And again i think broadly speaking the fact that parlor was taken down and archived in people are going through it to find. These people is not inherently a negative. But it comes with negative externalities and one of them is that there are now an awful lot of folks. Swarming into white nationalist dominated chunks of the fringe internet Now telegram has for the very first time that i'm aware of taking some action against a couple of these far right fascist telegram channels which is similar to what they did with isis last year. telegram doesn't move fast on extremists on their platform. But they have done it in the past and it looks like they're ramping up to do more of it now But this is a this is something we're going to have to deal with Because while i think that d platforming the people can stop and slow the ability the rate at which they recruit and radicalize new people. This went on for so long. The cuban on stuff went on for so long right like all of these different kind of extremist tendencies were allowed to percolate and spread on facebook and twitter and youtube for so long and to some extent still are even with the most recent purges that it's not going away just because we've we've liked like these people are still out there and they're still radicalized and i think that d platforming slows the their ability to spread the ideology. But you have a fuck lotta people out there who are just gonna get more and more extreme. And that isn't something you can solve with d platforming. There's a separate thing set of things you have to do for those people And to be honest we don't really have a great handle and what that is. Because i don't know that any society has ever had to deal with this. Many people.

"Who doesn't passively. You know it was interesting last week as things unfolded and i thought that there might be a potential for donald trump to be leaving office sooner than expected or at least that there would be some sort of actual movement in that direction but no president for life no I don't know about you guys. But i got rapidly frustrated last week in weekend as it started off with. We are filing articles of impeachment now and then it became we are urging the president to resign and if the president doesn't resigned we are going to vote on a resolution to encourage pence to invoke the twenty fifth. And if that doesn't do it then when five days remain we will impeach just to walk our words. Fuck you all so good. I lo i love every way possible. I feel the way about mitch. Mcconnell a little bit the way i do about emperor palpitation and star wars. He's just he's just he's there's there's there's a degree to which respect is the wrong word. But i appreciate. I appreciate how constantly on brand. He is like with his message. You guys can impeach the president. It'll start a day before biden is inaugurated and by the way it'll take up all of your early days in power in which you can actually get things done so sheriff you wanna do that. You won't be able to do anything else but like yeah. We can do that like mcconnell. If you don't wanna do that you'll still get nothing done you piece of shit possible because obviously that will go nowhere and obviously in many ways. It's a huge waste of time and resources that are direly important is direly a word dire dire leash dire leash dire dire exactly of utmost important. During a pandemic vaccine roll out has been laughable and people are dying at overwhelming rates but on the other hand there was an insurrection incited by the sitting in the united states.

And it's just come out that lindsey graham is on the plane with him despite saying earlier that their journey together with his has earned. I did my best. But i'm done now. I'm done so. He said after the insurrection that he and president trump had a hell of a journey but it was time to count me out because enough is enough. and now he's on air force one with the president. Because you know lindsey graham has again all of the spine of an earth be fair. And i believe i mentioned this last week. He had definitely had at least a few drinks when he said those statements. And i think that that's non binding. Despite the fact that he was on television front of all of the world hall of the entire planet graham. Yeah that's fun We will all remember the alamo remember alba texas rally alamo texas which is not the alamo about five hours away from the alabama thought he was going to speak of the alamo carbon will correct that would not have been that would barely have broken into the news just based on everything else. That's been happening. Tackle the combination alamo hertz. Actually to be more specific. Well we've milked moment. The fun thing about the battle of the alamo is that everyone there was drunk and racist and they still won the war.

Some more of her things are good. Hurt things are good. Everyone apologized and yeah. And we're all united yeah. Unity is divisive. Sorry you can't do today. Yeah you can't say unity We're all united in completely rolling over to a neo-fascist party and giving them whatever they want.

"Dude ready can objectify anything. We've had two beautiful bankable world wars. Totally tens that is such. Don't think to say that. They didn't even think to put something like that on the cognitive test. Should we ask people about both world wars and see if they find them attractive or not? No forget it. Nobody's brain. Is that broken? Show the elephants should look like this year. Also how insulting is it to say that people might rename the basis off to L. Sharpton of Costner should rename it. Think about how terrifying that would be enemy soldiers. Hush is a here comes l.. Sharpton. They're going to call us out on our racism. We're going show canceled almost goes without saying, but there's a giant middle ground between naming basis off the confederate generals and naming them off the L. Sharpton I mean America has had lots of non confederate generals and trump should know that he's fired a lot of them I mean. You can make any problem sound ridiculous if you pretend Al. Sharpton is the only solution president trump. We need universal healthcare. WHO's GonNa, be your doctor Al Sharpton, but here's the thing. As incredible as it was to see trump face, a real interviewer nothing wallace says is going to convince trump that he's wrong about anything because trump showed even when he is already been proven wrong, he still insists that eventually. He's going to be right Dr The beginning said this will pass. Don't worry about it. This will pass. It was raw made mistakes, too. I guess everybody might. Say You, said at one point. I think we're going to be very good with the. I think that at some point that's going to sort of just disappear. I hope I'll be right eventually. said it's going to disappear. Say it again, but to go into this this credit I'll be right eventually. I'll be right. That's not how being right works. If you get the wrong answer at Trivia, you can't get a point by claiming that. Eventually one of the answers we marched Simpson, but that also does expose the fundamental truth about trump. He's much more concerned about being able to say his rights than about. Being rights, if coronavirus ends up wiping out the entire planet, except for trump, he'll be standing at a podium by himself. Saying you see folks at totally disappeared. I was right. Portland Oregon the first city to legalize marriage between a bookstore and by trump Portland has now seen more than fifty straight days of black lives matter protests, but over the last few days something new has been happening with more and more protesters facing off against heavily armed law enforcement in some very dramatic ways MOMS gathered singing. Please don't shoot me last night, but local media says federal agents again used gas flash bangs pepper balls to disperse the crowd. Some people are calling a fifty three year old navy veteran, the Superman of Portland because of how he did not react after being hit by federal officers with batons and then tear gas. I'm sure you've seen this woman who's been dubbed Naked Athena. She showed up at protests very calm, very confident, wearing nothing, but a face mask and a beanie, and just so you know she's wearing courage. Did disperse when she just sat there and showed her body. Protesting naked. Now. That's bravery. Law We should have been naked as part of a protest I mean. She could just be one of those people who spent so much time in lockdown that they forgot that they have to wear clothes when they leave the house again I'm to everyone in that. Bodega all right. I was just popping into by some nuts. I didn't mean for everybody to see mine and how dope all those moms? You. Know your protest protesters picking up steam when your mom shows up. My Jeremy Wants to fight the system because this guy is a real AAC, have right Jeremy warm a tool that can defeat fascism by myself God. What's behind this new wave of protests? In Portland, well, they're reacting to a recent move by the trump administration that has put the whole city on edge. You see for months. Local officials there had been allowing peaceful demonstrations without too much interference, but president trump was not happy about that, so he decided to send in the feds which led to scenes. Scenes like this crisis unfolding in Portland Oregon after video surfaced online that showed massive camouflaged federal agents, detaining peaceful protesters Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum says federal officers are the ones escalating the violence. She's now suing several federal agencies for actions like this. What is going on? We need to know. Who are you fear for five of them? Jumping out of the unmarked man's at night grabbing people off the streets, putting them into their vans, man that sounds less like democracy in what an episode of narcos unidentified soldiers throwing protesters into an unmarked van on the streets of Portland. Like I. Don't care who you are. Nothing good has come from an unmarked van. It's never like Limburg the bird. We're going to Disney world. And how people even supposed to tell the difference between being arrested and being kidnapped. Because I, don't know if you've noticed this in America. Random dudes walk around in camel gear holding guns all the time. I mean. Can you tell which of these is a federal officer? In which was doing army man? 'cause play because I. can't so if you ask me? There's only one solution here. and. That's Lucien. Is that everyone should dress up in camel? That's the only way everyone's going to be safe that way when they come to arrest you and throw you in their van. You can be like no I'm arresting you and throwing you in my van and things will get so confusing that eventually you get thrown in your own van. You can just drive home now if you sitting at home wondering. Why should I care about? This man is happening in Portland I'm not even a hipster. Well now. Trump says that he's planning to send these secret police to cities all across America, so you might WanNa. Get naked and call your mom because shits about to go down..

"President. Trump sat down for an interview with Chris. Wallace, the only reporter at Fox News who isn't trying to become the next press secretary and you can tell that he isn't because this was no softball interview. In fact, it was pretty much a masterclass in how not to let them get away with his usual bullshit like you know how trump is always bragging about how well the United States is doing the coronavirus well. Here's what happened when he tried that. Move with Chris Wallace. I think we have one of the lowest mortell new. Nine hundred deaths on a single day. We will become this week ready. Intriguing get me the mortality rate. Keighley's right here I heard. We have one of the lowest. Maybe the lowest mortality rate anywhere in the world. You have the numbers blows because I heard. We had the best mortality rate. Eight S. Point. And it's the. Number number one. I hope you show this because it shows what factors ISOLA. News. We'll put. Our stats who said we had the worst sports salary rate in the world. The song, right? It's a little complicated, but bear with us. We went with numbers from Johns Hopkins University which charted the mortality rate for twenty countries hit by the virus, the US ranks of it better than the United Kingdom but worse than Brazil and Russia the White House went with this chart from the European CDC which shows Italy and Spain doing worse, but countries like Brazil and south. Korea, doing better other countries doing better like Russia aren't included in the White House charge. Oh, you see! Chris Wallace did two things right there that trump absolutely hates. He proved him wrong and he made him do homework and the funniest part about this to me, isn't that trump used a bullshit charts to that? America has the best mortality rate. It's even on a bullshit chart. It's still not true I mean. If you just want any chart. That's GONNA show. HOW WELL YOU'RE DOING! Just go all the way with it, and that wasn't the only time. Trump tried to bring receipts that he didn't actually have here. He is attempting to prove that Joe! Biden said. He wants to fund the police. They wanted to fund the police. Inviting wants to fund the Big Luther. He does not look. He signed a charter with Bernie Sanders. I will get that. One Guy was right in the mortality rate. Did you read the yard of the he agrees is nothing about defunding. Really it says abolish, it says. Let's go all right. All right. You've got start studying for these. He says it's fun the plates. He says defined the police. They talk about abolishing the police. They talk about aliens flooring. Look forward to seeing thanks I'm not disagreeing with any of those. I'm disagreeing about de-fund police. White House never send US evidence. The Bernie Biden platform calls for defunding or abolishing police because there is not. Oh Man I. don't Care How many times I watch it. It is priceless seeing trump flail around turn find affect that he made up, and it actually shows you how brain just kind of mixes up. He reads into one big information smoothie, because clearly he read that. Biden wants to abolish immigration detention and he also read that Biden wants police reform. And then his brain just mashed them up into Biden wants to abolish the police KINDA WANNA give trump a book to read just to see how he would explain it back to me green eggs, and as a tragic story about two weeks. That WANNA marry him. They WANNA. Get married. He'll love each other, but again another great fact. Check from Chris Wallace. And I've got to admit. I Love Chris. Wallace the journalist. But Chris Wallace. The Dad must be a nightmare. His kids are probably coming home. Like School is fine, you know we just did a bunch of work. Just put my head down and work well. Actually I have photo evidence here of you spending all day under the bleachers vaping while making out with Samantha and honestly it got to the point where Chris Wallace wasn't just fact checking trump? He was fact shaming him. Because for years now trump has been bragging about what a good score! He got some cognitive ability tests and yesterday wallace flat out, told trump that his test score ain't shit in the Fox poll. They asked people. Who is more competent? WHO's got WHO's mind? Sounder! I've beats you in that well I. Tell you what. Let's take a test. Let's take a test right now. Let's go down Joe and I will take a test. Let him take the same test that I took incidentally. I took the test to when I. Heard that you pass, do you? How do you? Not the hardest house now, but the picture and it's the last eleanor again you see that's all misrepresentations. That's what it was on the West so misrepresentation, because yes, the first few questions are. But I'll bet you couldn't even answer. The last five questions I'll bet you couldn't make it very hard. The last one of them was come back from one hundred seven. And let me tell you. Couldn't answer. You couldn't answer all right. What's it cost many of the questions I? Get you the test. I'd like to give her I guarantee you. The Joe Biden could not answer those questions okay. And I answered all thirty five questions correctly. Wow guys. This is sort of making me sad right now. Trump is trying so hard to claim his genius because he passed the test. Where you have to identify an elephant, which let's be honest, even for trump is too easy I mean if they wanted to test trump, they shouldn't have Austin, identifying elephant, they should've Austin to identify his second daughter. Yeah, that would have been impressive, is it? Is it this one? No, that's jared Sir okay. But I was close right, and also counting back from hundred by seven is super easy. Anyone can do one hundred. Ninety three. Eighty six. Genius and you know what? I! Actually do feel reassured that trump pass that cognitive test, because someday, when terrorists threatened to kidnap the Washington Monument, unless the president correctly identifies the elephants. You know trump's got that should handle. It's now one is the rhino with the lung knows now. Wallace covered a lot of ground this interview, but no matter the subject trump managed to make it wit for instance when Wallace asked trump about army bases named after confederate generals. This is what he said. The National Defense Authorization Act The N. D.. You of threatened to veto it because in the bill, and this is supported by Republicans as well as Democrats. It would rename. Army. Base is named for confederate generals. We won two World Wars to World War is beautiful world wars that were vicious and horrible, and we want metaphor brand. We WANNA out of. All of these sports at now, they want to throw those names away. Go to that community where Fort Bragg is in a great state. I love that state. Go to go to the community say. How do you like the idea of Renaming Fort Bragg? And then what are we going to name it? Named after the Reverend Al Sharpton Okay..

"Talk about face mosques. They're keeping US healthy and letting US pretend we're all the shredder. I'll get you. Ninja Turk olds. Most people have gotten the message that even simple mosques can slow the spread of corona virus in fact in the US. A nice sixty nine percents of Americans are saying. They now wear masks when they leave the house. But now this some new research that confirms just how effective a can actually and one of the best ways to protect yourself and others from getting covid nineteen is to wear a mask a new study out of Hong Kong shows Corona virus transmission rates. Dropped by seventy five percent when surgical masks are used researchers used hamsters masks draped over the cages of infected. Hamsters dropped infection to seventeen percent hamsters. Who still got infected? Despite having a mask barrier had less of the virus in their bodies compared to hamsters without Basques according to this I opening Frankie adorable study mosques drop transmission rates of the coronavirus by seventy five percents and while. This is a great study for homeless health. I think it's a huge missed opportunity for those scientists. I mean why would you drip mosques over the cage when you could have put Moss on the hamsters? I mean that is instagram gold for a bunch of logistics. You guys don't know shit about going viral right. No one's so clearly wearing mosques important but that doesn't mean that it's easy. I mean for one thing. Unless you plan on chugging all your meals it really makes it impossible to eat or drink until now as health officials are asking the public to wear face masks to group of friends in Texas. Just developed a mass. That makes it easy. Drink through. Cordell had an epiphany when she had to take off her mask to take a sip of water. That's when she came up with the idea for shut your mouth. The masks include a front zipper that allows people to more easily. Get a drink while they're out in public. The latest look and protective face masks. Have people saying I'll drink to that. That's because it comes with a whole for a straw and Israeli man created a protective face. Cover the allows you to eat food without removing your mask. You just squeeze a lover which opens a slot for your mouth so you can eat without removing the mask. What a great invention. Now we can all have lunch and nightmares. I mean nothing. Gets my appetite going like seeing my friends has been dummies around. I'm not and I'M GONNA live. I don't know why we needed that. One with the Zipper like that already exists. I've got three of those mosques. My cousins right. Now Yeah. It's dust mosques. You don't like doing the garden and then you want to say something be done in ten minutes do not. Even though most Americans are wearing mosques many still refuse and confrontations between Moscow's and Anti Moscow's have been going viral and the latest one. Maybe the best yet. You see a Las Vegas Patriots. Tried to shame a costco employees. Who told him that he needs to wear mosque in the store and things did not go the way he expected a costco employees in. Las Vegas is being praised for standing his ground and deny a customer who refused to put.
