Caller: Donald Trump Has Too Much Against Him Going Into 2024
"I say that, I don't believe Donald Trump should run again. I believe that he's got too much against him, and I don't think they're going to quit trying to get him till they get him with something. And he's got too many foes in both parties. So I think he's going to he's innocent. He's been my man, and I believe these gods man for the time, but you know, I just don't believe that he has a chance of winning anymore. Maybe desantis would be would be the one to go with now because Donald Trump's just got too much against him. And if people get behind him, I mean, he was the best president. This country has ever had in my opinion that I know of. So anyway, that's what I got to say. Yeah, you know Jeff that's an interesting, it's an interesting thing you brought up because Trump is going to be battling his own party, the establishment wing, and they're going to be coming after him. They're going to try to sabotage him. So he's got to not only fight the Democrats, and the mainstream media. He's going to have to take on the establishment wing of his own party and he is not going to have Fox News channel there to present the truth of these accusations that have been levied and will be levied against him, so that's something you've got to factor in. And the other big part of that is, where does Trump go to siphon off voters from the Democrats? What demographics will join him that have not joined him to this point.
The Vietnam War and the Legacy Media
"Some books have an interesting confluence of events around them when they come on to my radio show. When I was reading, I finished that outlined only the strong was the first time I had met on the radio hang khao. And Han kal came in the United States as a refugee from Vietnam. He was a captain in the navy special forces warrior, amazing American. He received the camp Pendleton in an operation that my brother in law then a captain back from his second tour in Vietnam was partially involved in and my brother in law was at the house when I was talking to Han cow and we talked about that operation. The people who fought Vietnam are still here. They're still with us in large numbers, and they're still proud of their service. But the folks who ran away from it and who have devoted their lives to denying what we were about are still here too. And they're deeply embedded in the media senator. I am curious about the media's reaction to only the strong because you're hitting right at the heart of the people who run legacy media. It is the Vietnam generation and the people that they hired. Yeah, I mean, here today, the most of the legacy media is just a press adjunct of the Democratic Party and the progressive movement in America. Is that right not only the strong, the media had essentially declared war in the home front. You had Walter Cronkite, for instance, saying that Ted offensive had been a major disaster when, in effect, our troops in Vietnam had essentially destroyed the vietcong on a gorillas in South Vietnam as a fighting force. He had The New York Times consistently leaking and trying to undermine the war effort leader of the salzburger family at the time who owns The New York Times. Saying he didn't know what America had to offer. The Vietnamese that was any better than the communists.
Understanding the Jimmy Carter Legacy
"Senator, I want to fast forward from Wilson, not yet to Obama and posit Jimmy Carter. You write on page 33 of only the strong about the deep sense of shame James fallows talked about for evading the draft. I've long thought that my generation was conflicted over Vietnam. I came in after Vietnam, but the people who skipped out on Vietnam versus my brother in law who fought it had a deep emotional divide. They were never going to be able to overcome. And that it manifested itself in politics in an unspoken way. You articulate that. So obviously you've thought about what Carter and the Vietnam era did to us, how did that play into the wilsonian hostility towards American exceptionalism? Well, Wilson openly repudiated the American founding and the moral basis of our country. Once you lose that moral foundation cue as Abraham Lincoln warned about in his great speeches and letters in 1850 1960s, it's not a very far slide into repudiating America itself. And that's what the new left did in the 1960s, especially leading up to Vietnam. I think

Is the Connecticut Senate Seat in Play?
"Now Leah, I'm overlooking the fact that you're a brown graduate and having you on today. So that we're going to give you a pass on that. Don't know anybody. But you know, when I was at Brown, I started the young Republicans club. And listen to them. You and I are both graduates of the same year when I was up at Harvard running the young Republican club, and that was a nightmare. Laura, just generally getting people to pay attention in a deep blue state, like Connecticut, is the most difficult part of the equation, but once people begin to realize it's possible, you begin to feel momentum. What do you feel? It feels great on the ground in everywhere I go throughout the state. I have Democrats and independents coming up to me and say, well, the Democrats say, don't tell anyone, but I'm voting for you. And independence, you know, they're independent. They know that life doesn't have to be this way. It can be normal again. It can be better again. And they're voting for me. Every single poll shows that I am winning the independent and unaffiliated vote here. This is a single digit rate. He is below 50% and he is worried. And so is Chuck Schumer. Chuck Schumer, his super PAC has started running ads against me here in Connecticut.

A Montage of John Fetterman's Debate Performance
"Here's a little Salem news channel Montage of the shocking moments in the John fetterman, Doctor Oz debate in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania night before last. Hi, good night, everybody. He has never met an ear, an oil company that he doesn't swipe right about. It's about supporting and helping young earners. Young young students, to give them a break, I believe that supporting I do support fracking and all right, I support fracking and I stand and I do support fracking. I believe China is not our friend and I believe that we can't be able to push back. Our next star poll shows 51% of Pennsylvania voters disapprove of the president's job performance. You have publicly supported many of his policy positions. Are there any that you disagree with 30 seconds?

YouTuber Sydney Watson Talks About Men's Rights
"Let's talk about your phrase men's rights, always gives me the heebie jeebies. I find it disturbing. I find it, I think negative association is the biggest weakness for me. I associate it with weak men with men who are have no stamina or backbone, the cliche of the incel or what have you. Do we need a men's rights movement or do we just need normalcy and to stop the insanity and to understand a man is this a woman is that and these things have been true for millennia. It talked to me about how you got involved in all of that and try and educate me. Well, I also find the term men's rights activist to be really cringey and I similarly to you I don't particularly like when people use it and I certainly don't like when they attribute that to me because I don't think I'm an MRA. I just think I'm a person that cares about men and women because even in recent months and since my experience with Jack Murphy and some of the other things that happened on you are here when I was part of it, which was a show that I was hosting. You know, I was sat opposite misogynists who clearly don't like women who clearly have very strong feelings. And so it gave me a unique understanding of, oh, this actually happens. It does happen on the other side towards women. And so it's helped me, I think, have a greater understanding of when men aren't treated so well. And the reason I got involved in this is because again, Australia hyper focuses on the behavior of men. So for example, if a woman is brutally sorted or if a woman is murdered and it becomes a national story, people will often start the narrative and the rhetoric of, oh, let's teach men not to be violent. Let's teach men not to rape. When in reality, the portion of men that are committing crimes like that is small enough as it is. And I don't discredit the fact that men commit the majority of crimes. And there's a multitude of reasons for that. But the narratives that ultimately come basically demonize and attribute these horrible characteristics to all men and that's not true. And so I think that a lot of men these days are feeling so downtrodden. And so overwhelmingly attacked for just by virtue of the fact that they happen to be men. I mean, think about all the toxic masculinity discussions that you've heard over the years and all of these brands and leaders in our governments and what have you who just constantly levy all of their hatred towards the male species, I think to myself this is not appropriate. This is not important and who will fight for men if men themselves really can't fight for themselves.

Why Is Congressman Mark Garcia Against Diversion Program for Juveniles?
"So if juveniles commit felonies like burglary, assault, vehicle theft robbery grant theft, sexual battery arson, you name it, they can bypass being charged and go straight into some other program. This is causing a big problem in Los Angeles where we are already seeing a surge. Really, crime rate skyrocketing around here. Yes, absolutely. And really, this is a continuation of this guy who is effectively working for the bad guys, giving hope to the criminals rather than protecting the law abiding citizens in our county, gascon, you've heard before, he's like the penguin from Gotham City. He's out there to do harm to our city. And he's absolutely making the biggest difference in our county that we've ever seen from a DA in the most negative way. So this new policy and when they say diversion, they're using that in the term in the sense of diverting not as in a good time. But literally diverting juveniles through our out of a system and then into a rehab program without any accountability. And what this would effectively do is allow a juvenile for instance to hold you at night point steel your stuff threatened to kill you and while they're robbing you using a weapon, they would get arrested, put into this diversion program, rehabilitated without ever seeing the inside of a courtroom without having charges levied against them. Literally a violation of the constitution, both amendments, 5 and 6, where we actually hold people accountable and again, this is just a continuation of a bad actor in the form of gascon who is literally not charging criminals for crimes. These aren't petty theft. These aren't low level misdemeanors. These are felonies and any other state any other county and these folks are going to be let free.

I thought he if anything needed to be changed. It was cashman because you need a different set of eyes. It's a different feel. He clearly made mistakes. Missile value team was going to last year. But i do have faith that he'll be able to change assuming that they give them some flexibility to go out there and stand get a shortstop get a catcher. Get a first baseman. Maybe center fielder as well last thing. I just interviewed. Jeff garland because curb is coming back this sunday and he confirmed what i had heard and read that. There's only one episode first episode. They make mention of covert. It's not addressed the rest of the season. they don't deal with it. They sort of doing this show in a post. Covert world Is that bother you. Did you see. Larry deal with the covert minutia. The masks no mass the vacuum or you want the escapism in your fine without the cova. Great question and i haven't really given it much. Thought i will say. I think it's odd to avoid it being that in our minds this took place in the midst of it. We're still living with it. And plus it's a layup. Right as you mentioned. Larry yung cove. I'm curious more than any alabama bothered. I'm curious why they would do that. or how. it's gonna work if they address it once and then move on because it is a part all jeff says they're doing a post covert world. I guess maybe they'll say something like you know. I can't believe what we dealt with. Then they'll move forward right but we're still dealing with it. We're not living in reality. We're not living in a post coke. Happy his argument was that this is the scape ism put on curb for twenty five minutes. And you're escaping from cove and everything that's going on and you get larry for i get that and i appreciate that believe me. Nobody wants to be dealing with this. As long as we have to ignore it. ratio that is based in reality. You wanna stay from colby watch star wars or assigned by name name. Hasn't based on reality. I would have liked some a couple of episodes maybe on it and then you move on but yeah i because it would have been funny. Jeff was making the the argument that cove. It's not funny. It's hard to laugh at it. And i got it but larry is the one person i think they can get away with making it fun for us. That is true because what are they going to do. Mass no mask vaccine. Novak's make fun of it and then one where you're pissing people off so that i can understand why they would avoid that at least make some sense right. I appreciate it.

It's so sensitive and as probably talked to people for a living you know. I can connect like that. But and but the other. Amore important thing i took away is nikki.

I won't jump down her throat. i'll be like mom. It's great that you're on lie. Starting online date mom. It's wonderful like god build someone up. Nobody needs to be tear down. It was it was just.

I wrote this thing but it just feels like a closer relationship and like i'm less angry. That's pretty good endorsement for the morning pages. Yeah i mean they haven't all been that revelatory but yeah. I don't know if that if you relate to that at all but big time. Yeah yeah yeah I you know. I it's funny the artist's way is come up for me so many times in recommended me so many times in the thing that has always kept away from it is knowing that there is a week a stage at which you are supposed to not read anything. And that's what. I and. I know that i can't do it. So it keeps me from even cracking the blunt. Now you're not. I didn't even know that i am. I making that up nikki. Have you got that. i just finished. It's the reading deprivation. Oh can you hear me. Yeah oh you just finished it. I just finished it a week ago and That that that week. That's that's for dave. I think that's four And it's called reading deprivation because of this was written before social media. You're not supposed to read twitter or you're not supposed to scroll instagram or facebook. Or whatever else you do you know. I would have to jump on instagram. Four don't tell my mother rate so for posting stuff. I would have to jump on or see who comment. I guess i didn't. I don't have to but i feel like that's work right and that's my job so i do that and then if i start to scroll i stopped myself. I saw myself and same thing with facebook of after post something. I don't scroll in a crowd. Of course a bunch of times. I started to go shit. Stop scrolling. But i'll tell you something that they've actually been times this week. That i've revisited Revisited that reading deprivation. Because the the whole idea of the reading deprivation i guess. Is that like at creative people. Tend to fill ourselves other people's creative stuff right. Like i love to read like i told you i read casey's book i'm reading to other book simultaneously you know i've finished casey's but now i'm reading this other book that i love called what got you here won't get you there like i. I love to read so but it allowed me to have my own thoughts and also it allowed me to not do the compare and despair shit on social media which is just really a shit storm. I think for everybody. It helped me. i think. Feel a little more. I don't know composed. I guess would not a word i usually use but something i'm i'm picking up what you're laying down the you are. You are making the artist's way sound a lot less terrifying I knew nothing short. The don't read anything week. I think it's week four. I think it's the week. I i think that's what it was well. Then i've made it to week three and that's of your own thoughts that's fine. I've i've tried it before to now.

You know this show runs. Raving above nina. Holy shit is like all my god. It takes place in spain for anybody who doesn't know his place in spain. It's about this famous. You trans like prostitute. Turn kinda like celebrity and like it's like in two or three different time periods in. Its like magical realism. I mean eat is gorgeous. It's not just a good story it's awesome. Mj rodriguez actually the one who turned me onto it. 'cause she posted on instagram and i was like And then i finally got around to it. And i'm like this is brilliant. I got put it into the queue guys put into the queue and then i actually just finished a book that you guys have talked about on this podcast and i didn't read it because you talked about it. I read it. Because i am a fan of hers and i just like her and she's done. Don't tell my mother. But i just read. Casey wilson's ally shave read. I did the audio book of wreckage of my presence. It's fantastic very good. It's very good. It's brian green and on audible. Like they have me like to a creator pick. So i get to pick like three three books that i love now is my first one. I think four bucks i love. That was my first one. I loved it with it was surprisingly like surprisingly vulnerable. Like i was surprised. Yeah that's my favorite thing about. It was that it's like there's so many comedy memoirs and it would be so easy for. It's just be like a sort of a cutesy like here. My show biz tails but it is so raw and And there's so much stuff in there about grief in her anger and you know motherhood and stuff but it's also of course hilarious and there is some fun dushi elements to it but yeah i'm very biased. But it is the reveal about her mom at the end. Which kinda wasn't surprising but was because i was actually not to get too inside baseball but like i talked to people about their mothers all day. Right like all the podcast is. Don't not the audibles muslim. but the podcast is. Don't tell my mother it comes from like just having a just a honestly like a way to codependent relationship with my mom really just to the point where when i left for college it was like i left to go to the mid west and from queens because i just had to get i had to get away from from her from Really really complicated divorce. That my dad and my mom were going through and i just needed to kind of be my own person and i remember reading or listening. I always say reading. But i don't really read much. I just listen listening to the book. I remember kind of being envious of like having a mom like that. I was like wow like. I want a mom who works for the equal rights. You know the ira and who does. I don't know like wow who such a go-getter and seems to have her shit together. And i love my mother. But that's just not my mother. And i remember being kind of listening to this book and saying wow like it would how cool would have been. If i got the modeling that i i wish i got. Honestly i'm dealing with that in my head a lot lately about about motherhood and wishing that i had learned things that i didn't and and then there's a reveal at the end that i don't i don't i don't want to give away but it sheds light on things and it made me remember because i easily forget that mickey like you know. Don't compare your insides to someone else's outsides. Yeah yeah so. Where are you mentally and emotionally about your own preparations for motherhood well. So six years ago i froze embryos So an embryo because a lot of people actually don't realize it's a it's a fertilized egg. So i went to freeze eggs and because i'm gay they say is there a twenty five percent chance or more that you'd want to get sperm like from someone that you're with and i was like you know you know. Having a baby is beautiful and you know how that naturally happens for me is just not as beautiful and probably no and they said well you should freeze embryos so i picked donor and i did it. And i got seven embryos great..
