"Of Obama chip. Yeah. Here. We gotta find the sound words just the entire cut all the way through because he does mention at some point that he doesn't understand why the Republicans wouldn't vote for the 16 Commission, which, as far as right now, it's turns up.

You don't have to swear to God, I you You said it. I read the headline and I believe you right away. I was just thinking the other day, though, because I was talking in the mail room manager. And we were talking about co bid. And right now I'm seeing all these beautiful face. It feels like things are getting back to normal. But there are certain things and I don't know if you'll agree with me, Jared that I don't think we'll ever go back to normal. And one thing that sticks out in my mind is bread, the bread baskets at restaurants. You do not see those anymore. Some restaurants have put it back on their menus and said, You know, you can order bread. But that seems to be something that's gone with Kobe it some people say handshakes. There's not gonna be handshakes anymore. That died with Cove. It. Um Yeah, There's a few things, Jared, You ever notice that? Yeah, well, I don't make it to restaurants.

Yeah, that there are certain things that probably are never going to come back because people just I mean, I wouldn't be surprised if drinking fountains or bubble is never come back. Oh, I used to hate the bubbler at school. I would use it. But just the concept of it is kind of gross. And I think more people are gonna be washing their hands for real. Not just doing the old fake. Stick them in. Stick them out. People probably will continue to actually wash their hands, which is kind of a silver lining. Lee, you're next with Grace and grace curly show gladly.

You know, in a sweaty mosh pit with people dancing that's part of life. We have a vaccine. We need to stop with this nonsense about certain things, but I am a fan of kind of just like the head nod and keep moving. I don't think you need to shake hands with everybody. You see, Maybe that's just may. Um Lee, thank you for the call. I do appreciate it. Jared. I'd like to play and we'll keep taking calls on this that people want to talk about things. You do not think. Are going to ever come back ever again. Um, maybe they're things that make you happy that they're not going to come back. Or maybe the things that make you sad.

Merrick Garland Confirmation Hearing For AG
"But today is all about Merrick Garland. He'll appear before the Senate to take questions from lawmakers for the position of attorney general. Most people know Merrick Garland's name because of something that didn't happen. Garland never got a hearing after President Obama nominated him to serve on the Supreme Court five years ago. Here's NPR justice correspondent Carrie Johnson. Merrick Garland has devoted nearly 45 years to the law. But he didn't start out that way is, he told Professor Martha Minnow at Harvard Law School in 2016. Why don't you go to law school in the first place? Chemistry, well chemistry and math. Garland had planned to become a doctor. He wanted to help people one on one, but his collision with the hard sciences spun him toward the law, where he's looked for that sort of direct connection ever since. In the mid 19 eighties. At his law firm in Washington, Garland became a rising star. He made time for a young college graduate who worked in the copy center to Randy Thompson says Garland reviewed one of his papers, photocopied it and rearrange the paragraphs. That was the beginning of In essence and becoming a riding coach. For me, it was just extraordinary experience and became my coach. Eventually, my mentor and 30 something years later, a friend. Eventually Garland Road, MMA reference for law school and has kept in touch ever since, Thompson says garlands Still a little old school still humble, still looking to help. The only thing that really has changed about him, And I guess me as well is the color of hair. I don't know, well respected judge as attorney general. Help get the department under the quagmire of partisan politics that many people think it devolved to under President Trump and Attorney General Bar That's Georgetown law professor Paul Butler. He says the DOJ has been reeling from political scandals and racing to confront the threat from homegrown extremists. Merrick Garland has faced both before. After clerking on the Supreme Court. Garland took a job as an advisor in President Jimmy Carter's Justice Department. In those years after Watergate, DOJ struggled to separate partisan influence from law enforcement and establish new boundaries for the FBI. Garland also played a bit part in some of the biggest investigations of that era from political corruption to national security that Garland says later turned into hit movies. American Hustle about the Abscam case. Argo about the ex filtration of hostages in Iran and the most important the miracle on ice. Which was about the Lake Placid Olympics, where I did work on the security for the Olympics By the 19 nineties, Garland was prosecuting a violent gang that terrorized people in a public housing project. And helping build a case against DC's mayor Marion Barry. On drug charges Back inside Justice Department headquarters, Garland became the man to see for the hardest problems. The car bomb exploded outside of a large federal building in downtown Oklahoma City, Garland would soon travel to the site of the most deadly domestic terror plot in American history. 168 people died in that bombing in Oklahoma. Former deputy Attorney General Jamie Go Relic remembers watching that day with Garland by her side, he basically said while watching Children being pulled out of the wreckage. That he had to go. He really wanted to go. We both had young Children at the time and What we saw on those screens was so affecting. Garland oversaw the search warrants protected the chain of evidence and insisted that reporters have access to court proceedings. We wanted somebody Who could make sure that the investigation was done by the book. And that any indictment was bulletproof. Prosecutors later convicted Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols for their role in that bombing. Former prosecutor Beth Wilkinson says Garland played an important role in other confrontations with extremists in those years, including a standoff with the heavily armed Montana free Men. One of the examples I can think of is sometimes and there were these stand downs where there would be, you know, arrest warrants for someone, or there would be some kind of controversy between people who were challenging the federal government. America's first instinct wasn't to go in and arrest everyone. It was to try and along with the FBI to see if there's a dispute could be resolved. Wilkinson says. The FBI went on to arrest those men later. She credited garlands, quick thinking and cool head that may have prevented a tragic outcome. Just about the only criticism Garland's nomination has drawn is in the area of civil rights. Garland is a moderate, so I don't see him as the bold and visionary leader or racial justice that some people were hoping for again. Georgetown law professor Paul Butler that he's not an ideologue is both discerning for people who want an attorney general. To meet this moment of national reckoning inspired by the movement for Black lives and the killing of George Floyd Butler says he thinks girls just from the White House long time civil rights advocate Wade Henderson says Garland is up to the task. But Henderson says it's a big one. The next attorney general, for example, has to do everything In his or her power to fight for voting rights. Police reform Criminal justice reform and LGBT Q equality. For the past 23 years, Garland has been a federal appeals court judge in that role, he doesn't have much of a chance to share his personal views. Carolyn Lerner, the chief mediator at the courthouse, says Garland took an early, an important lead to update policies that protect workers from sexual harassment and other misconduct. I think it's very clear that Judge Garland cares a lot about these issues, and he really wants employees to be happy and comfortable in the workplace, and when he was chief judge, he took his responsibility. To these employees very seriously, she says. Garland wants to continue another of his projects at the Justice Department tutoring sessions with a young public school student. This year. The judge is working with an 11 year old boy and his twin sister. Your mom is Andrea Tucker. He makes this so interactive for them and so much fun and they can't get enough of it. It's the kind of public service that Garland has always wanted to

"Just because you're saying something nasty about Trump. I think that just about everybody in the entire country has something nasty to say about that doesn't necessarily qualify you for anonymity. And it certainly makes it less credible in my mind. But how do you two thought that they leaked recordings from the room at the time? Given the way that this has gotten legs, it's it's just pathetic. Speaking of of leaked such an over the top thing to Eric, I mean You know, it's kind of like, you know, you're trying to say that he insulted Mom and apple pie. And could you make this sound a little bit more like a You know something that you would just make up in years sitting in your office said this while kicking a puppy. It's great. Exactly. That's that's kind of vibe. I get Speaking of leaked things. You guys haven't editorial of their Democrats won't live by the pandemic standards they force on everyone else. Queen Nancy Pelosi Video was released of her inside a hair salon in San Francisco, getting her hair blown out. For Asuman MSNBC hit which took place about two hours later. The salon was not supposed to be open. No one's allowed to go in there. You can do it outside, but Nancy Pelosi was in dancing. Pelosi wasn't wearing a mask. It really is evidence of this double standard. But that doesn't surprise me. What surprised me was when confronted with it. Nancy Pelosi pulled the Marion Barry defense I was set up. This was a symphony genuinely hilarious that she I mean, she really just bit cooperatively. I mean, it was just awful because then her daughter like people are right. A lawyer. Uses a letter claiming that this is a clear set up. I mean, you can't just say sorry I shouldn't have done that, like sorry all these, but the bigger problem is that it's very clear that there's a double. There's a double enter a divergence between what a lot of officials like Pelosi are saying in public that your grandma killer if you want to get your hair cut. And then what they're doing in private, which is only getting their hair cut without even wearing a mask. I mean, she could have at least one, the mass, you know, you can plausibly say, Well, I know she's out there. Spreading the virus or, you know, according to her own account what she's doing. She's out there, killing grandmas. So you know great. What is it? Why do you think that there was this sort of pushed back to her? It would really would have been simple to say. I didn't know. I'm sorry. Andi won't happen again and just lost it. I mean, it made this make sure looked really Don lemon couldn't defend this. He actually was on T me. We have a nice time recounting. His reaction to this where even he can't come up with a defense for this one, so the idea that you would react angrily to it? I mean, it's sort of like, you know, it's like Somebody produces a video of you doing something horrible, like beating. Ah, baby kill, and then you get angry at the person who made the video that That's extremely that That's the sort of conduct that I think makes people very upset when they when they when they recognize it right to attack the woman, and then she's been getting death threats that salon owner Yelp Page has been under attack. It just reminds me of my friend Joe the plumber. Who was outside? Yes. Barack Obama 2008 question. Barack Obama fumbled the question big time and within three days we knew more about Joe the plumber. Then we knew about Barack Obama has no real name isn't Joe. He's not a plumber. Good Lord. What about the fact that the Barack Obama screwed up in his answers?

What John Thompson Meant To DC
"What was it like for you to cover John Thompson and the Hoyas as a young reporter? What were your interactions with him like? It was. You know it was an education was twenty, three, twenty, four years old and that was my first beat but John was a handful. As you can imagine, and he controlled everything we control the player access you controlled access to himself and draw the program, and so John was someone that you You had to kind of meet on his terms. Can you describe he was six foot ten? He was just this literally and figuratively massive figure. Can you describe what it? was like to be in his presence well, I mean look any six, ten, three, hundred, pound guy is going to have a certain amount of power to him. You know he wasn't nimble I won't say he was Nimble but he certainly had the meeting of former athlete and you know he had a big loud booming voice nothing had happened by accident I had no intentions of being a basketball court. I. Wanted To be a teacher basically social worker kind of person freelance. Knew. How to use his size and his voice to great effect and I, was not the recipient of John's paint peeling yelling as as the players often were but they will tell you that there was just there was just nothing like it when he really was angry and was coming after you about a mistake, you made a decision you made. He certainly tilted the room when he came in when their buzzer went off and they said it's over. We didn't stay up and down the hallway and talk with people kissing is just so we can get a good article written about us he coach during the glory days of the Big East what do you remember most about his team's and just the style and the way that they played? Well, the frenetic full court pressure was their thing. To set up an impressed. Retract. Very physical teams anybody that came into the pink dot hit, and that's just the way that they had always played. Here. And that leads to a lot of confrontations. A couple of pretty bad fights. But a lot of grabbing and holding things like that. And that's just the way that they had always played in obviously worked for them. David you're born and raised DC. Can you talk about what John? Thomson and the Georgetown Program? Men's to people in DC and in particular to black basketball fans in the city DC was like a lot of cities in the eighties dealing with a lot of different stuff that was that was very difficult. The year is only sixty days old during that time. There have now been ninety-two homicides here in the District of Columbia last year sixty to eighty percent of the murders in the nation's capital, we're listed as drug related. You had the explosion of crack cocaine in DC in in the mid eighties just devastated whole swath of the community and you had Marion Berry who was this incredibly polarizing figure, and this is before his drug problems came to bear. He was polarizing well before then because he insisted that these rich white guys that tended to run the city hire black people all the people who only know Marion Barry through the nasty headlines in the videotape of crack cocaine. Don't know extraordinary work. He did in this in Washington to open up the doors of government to the black people of Washington you're shutout for years decades, and then you have this presidential era of Reagan, where there was a lot of hostility towards cities, there was a lot of cutting a city services. There was a lot of emnity towards people that were on welfare and they've perception that raking perpetuated was that all these people are welfare cheats and they're not in their bums and you're not working for a living perhaps the most insidious effect of welfare is it's usurpation of the role of provider. Public assistance for a single mother can amount to much more than the usual income of a minimum wage job. In other words, it can pay for her to quit work. These competing forces, all kind of colliding with one another in the city in the early eighties in the mid eighties and into that Maelstrom, you have this basketball team. That is good enough to win a national championship in one, thousand, nine, hundred, four. Jobs. The I ask championship. And then notice that the team is mostly black eleven of the twelve guys or thirteen or fourteen guys that get your attention in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, three, or eighty four you know rap videos late eighties is a Lotta Georgetown starter jackets in those videos. was torn concept had long hair and short baby came in national programs to the point where a lot of black people thought. Georgetown was an HP. Come to the. Question to see hundred. So there was this kind of interesting blend. Wall Street types and judges, and fortune five hundred CEO's with the people that cleaned the offices and drove the buses rooting for the same team and it was gonNA. Kinda, cold because it kind of it helped bring the city together in ways that really only the football team had done previously and it brought a lot of pride to the city as as a six. They were proving that black kids from inner city high schools could go to Georgetown and do work. They could do the work and that was a source of immense pride to people in DC Thomson was, of course, the first black basketball coach to win a national championship. But David you've written about how Thompson would bristle when asked about that accomplishment. Why did he? Take exception to that question will John would always say is that the question implied that he was the first black coach who who had the qualifications to win a national championship I'm not interested in being the first and only black do anything because it implies that in Nineteen eighty-four, a black man finally became intelligent enough to win NCAA, title and that's very misleading. And that was John's way of saying you know you need to understand the history of coaching. There was a lot more deferential treatment provided to white coaches for for decades and coaches like Adolph rupp that didn't recruit black players. was hostile toward black players. So that was John's way of saying you know do your homework. In nineteen, eighty nine. He famously walked off the court before a game to protest an NCWA rules that he felt disproportionately affected black students. undercurrent NCWA rules students can qualify for athletic scholarships by scoring seven hundred out of a possible sixteen hundred on the College Board Sat test fifteen out of thirty six on the act or with a two point average and certain. Subjects proposition forty two would require athletes to have both. What did he? What did he say about that? John's position was that both the sat scores and your grade point average could be impacted adversely due to the educational disparities present throughout public schools at the time black has weren't being taught the things that were on the sat. He made his point that you know these tests should not be the end all and be all in terms of determining whether or not a kid was smart enough to go into college. Moment existence and I. started into school that I would not been dotted with an opportunity to get a college education myself. He was recruiting kids that play but also kids that can do the work. So it was not as much an issue for him in terms of recruiting it was more the bigger picture of. Are we going to allow these tests to determine whether black kids can get into colleges and then they finally wound up modifying prop forty two as a result of it.

Can you prove that This wasn't a diabolical set up designed to bring down the speaker of the house by blow drying her hair? I.

You want smoke crack with any hooker you want. You'll still have power and you'll still be remembered by the devil. It's like it's like if you were salon owner If I'm this lady, it's It's like I'm not setting anybody up. I my my livelihood is being destroyed here and I want to put it on display. Like Why does she want Does she have to be shut down? Why does this woman's salon have to be shut down? If the speaker of the house is allowed to come in? Why don't we have to be shut down? This has nothing to do with me trying to get trump elected. This has everything to do with me Keeping my livelihood. My store going In my business going to say something If your Nancy Pelosi if you are the Democrats and you've lost, Don lemon of CNN lost Lemon, if you've lost don lemon, you're doing it wrong. So the speaker of the House is blaming the salon after she didn't wear a mask indoors tonight. The salon owner is denying it was a set up. Regardless. This is this far into the pandemic. The House speaker should know what is safe and what isn't We should all know it's our responsibility instead of claiming a set up Would have been just as easy for the speaker to say You know what? I messed up. I should have worn a mask indoors. Voice of reason. Don lemon ladies in jail. How and how much of a non story this would be today. If if Pelosi had come out and said, Yeah, look blew it. I They told me I was allowed to go in and I was allowed to go in. I should have my mask on. I'm sorry. I apologize. But now she's she's the one that ODed apology for being quote set up. And again, it doesn't matter if you were set up. It doesn't matter if Donald Trump was spied on, Michael Flynn was set up, right. Those guys like you declined the offer, if you are ah, wanting a haircut when nobody else could get one in the salon. No, thanks. It's not allowed off. You know, it's okay. Thank you, anyway. No matter if you're trying to be said that nobody ever somebody is setting you up or not. Remember when Pelosi was just ripping Donald Trump for not taking any blame on Corona virus. Remember when that was happening, So let's compare that speech toe what she did yesterday. Leaders take responsibility, so I said he's a weak leader doesn't take responsibility. He places blame blame on others. I think that they that.

I really like you said, and Well, I'd forgotten it was that vulgar, But he said to be I had set me up. The FBI had set me up Pelosi saying the same thing with the hair salon owner one more before we have to go to the break this yesterday. San Francisco. A radio program. The host, said to the mayor of San Francisco. London Breed is the name of the mayor. Did. Nancy Pelosi violate San Francisco's health order when she had her hair done? Blow out all that stuff? Pelosi has done so much for the city and even this country in the midst of this pandemic and all the stuff that's happening around the election. He is in Washington, D C. Fighting against a tyrant Every single day. We have a president that continues to divide us. And the reason why salons like this and other places can open. Has a lot to do where we are as a country and the fact that we have not had strong federal leadership and that's what she's fighting against. That should be the issue. That should be what we're talking about. Miss Trump's fault that they can't open the salons in San Francisco. Are you kidding? It's Donald Trump's for the tyrant.

Minutes ago, Nancy Pelosi finally taken 24 hours to get her story straight about breaking the state of California Covert 19 protocols going to salon lodger shut down everywhere. She's the speaker of the House, the third highest ranking politician in the nation. During this Copen 19 crisis. She is the highest ranking Democrat and politician in the state of California. She's the highest Ranking elected Democrat in America. And she went to a hair salon, and she's now claiming ignorance, which, by the way, maybe true, she may be ignorant. But, you know, isn't it incumbent on her to sort of know the laws. And so she finally spoke to reporters about this, and you need to hear her defense because it is the Marion Barry defense take responsibility for trusting the word of a neighborhood so long that I've been to over the years by the way that that is passive aggressive. She's saying I take responsibility and then immediately shifts the blame over to this line is that's back When your parents imagine your kid doing this Who took this cookie I mommy, I take full responsibility. For you. Eating one of the cookies that you made. I didn't ask you to make it. But you made the cookie and you made it so delicious And you made it smells so good. And I know I'm not supposed to eat cookies and I'm taking full responsibility for you making that cookie and putting it right in front of me and tempting me to eat it, and I couldn't resist it. And I will take responsibility. But you know, you did make the cookies. Would you let your kid get away with that? That's what she's doing here. Actually gets even worse. Take responsibility for trusting the word of a neighborhood so long that I've been to over the years. Yeah, my okay. My fault is entrusting you in the first place. I take full responsibility. This is my fault. It's my fault for trusting and that when they accommodate people, one person at a time and that set up that time I trust that. As it turns out, it was a setup, so I take responsibility for and that's all she does that. You know. She does that all the time in the reporters just dutifully follow along and obey her command. That's all I'm going to say about that. And the reporters stop asking questions. It's amazing. As Chris Plante says, It's really, really good to be a Democrat. But this is the Marion Barry defense. It was a setup be set me up. I'm pretty sure the person who owns a salon is a woman. So this is Marion. Barry there, she's channeling Marion. Barry. There you go. Not my fault. I take full responsibility, but it was a setup. Hey, it'll work. After all, there's a statue of Marion Barry in D.

Interview With Ben Shapiro, Author Of How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps
"With US co founder Of the daily wire. Ah, host of the Ben Shapiro Show number one New York Times bestseller. His latest book is How to Destroy American Three Easy Steps. Ben. He wrote this book. And we're in the middle of this. We seem to be dead Set on destroying America. Did you give everyone a blueprints or something? I am glad that I cannot take responsibility for it. I did not give them will bring. But I won't say that. When I wrote the book in the summer January, I figured out the relevant I didn't think you'd be quite literally been quite this quickly, like all the all the syndrome that I was talking about taking the country broke out into the open at once. So, you know, forget about the gun violence. What? You talked about the civil unrest in Philadelphia in Oakland in Portland in Seattle in New York City in Austin in Albuquerque. And And in Kansas City. What's going on here? I mean, what we're watching right now is a variety of movements, all pretending, t be about civil rights and moving the country better and then all immediately about making the country worse, But they're really about Castigating America as uniquely horrible castigating America systems as repositories of privilege and evil and saying that those systems need to be torn down. Whether you're talking about black lives matter. Rioters in Los Angeles or New York or Washington, DC, or the top men and rioters in Portland or in Seattle. We're watching in the end is sort of a lion's that says that the United States is bad. It's just that the bleeding spear of an ideology That that claims that the United States of systems are unworthy of continuing and need to be tor now out at the root, and there's a reason that Nicole Hannah Jones is very proud, she said. This on Twitter that did it that count 16 19 project and tackle editor of The New York Times. At this point, she said, on Twitter that she was happy. The people were suggesting that what happened in New York and L. A in Washington, D, C and all over the country that was 16 19 riots, meaning that her perspective on the United States namely that it was rooted in evil. And it's inseparable from that evil. That perspective had taken such hold. Now let me ask you Does that come up in the interview? Hi. How you doing? Tell me about your background. You seem to be a good writer and your view of America. It's terrible needs to be disassembled. And what based on slavery? I think you're the perfect person. We have a column. Feed it right. And we have a news division for you to lead so to prove bench appeal. You're right. I'm looking at, uh Ted Lin Seth. He is somebody who is A, uh, African American activist. He said Oregon is white is hell. Uh, he said that He warned that the black guys, Ah matter movement in the city is being co opted by quote privileged white people with their own agenda. It is not our agenda and double a C P is saying the same thing. Why are you telling us what we need again? If it is a white black thing? Why we, depending why are white people taking the lead is not the ultimate insult, telling black people What they need for justice. Late is pretty incredible. But even it goes back to this view of racism that is actually pushed by people like you bring Candy and Robert Angelo and Kenny, Of course, the author of how to Be a racist and from the Beginning and Financial of the author of My Fragility, their View of the United States that the United States is on only racist, But the racism is embedded in all of its systems. And so the way to you identify raising them. Is not how we used to identify racism used to be. You could pretty easily tell who's the racist who ever thought that there was inferiority or superiority based on racial race, right? That was the definition of racist well, Now they changed the definition. They say Any system that create any sort of racial inequality or results in any sort of racial inequality is a racist system. And if you don't want to tear down the system You are racist. Not only that, if you're a white person, you bear all responsibility for this so nobly bears responsibility for the success of white privilege to have lived under and propagated this particular system. What That doesn't mean that white people are still in charge. And the white people are the are the people who have you know, in the sort of old Runyon Kipling phrase that the white man burden to fix the entire system. And so what That means that the views of people of color actually don't matter. The only ones that actually matter are the views of people like Robin D'Angelo was going to cure the country of Whiteness and hat and take on the past in of the United States, So that's why you see these bizarre videos of these white protesters lecture and black ops about what America needs on racism. But I also find her standing, too, is the place they're just overrun with gun violence. And that, of course, is Chicago with great Rahm Emanuel rained and left with his tail between his legs but came out with his chest high with his with his chin in the air in his chest pumped out as if he was a great victor. So because the president did states actually did what he said he was going to use his Listen. I'm gonna send some federal help in there. To not to handle protesters on the Christopher Columbus statue. No, but to find out about these guys. Gangs there were running rampant and the sub gangs that are killing each other. They're shooting each other at funerals at funerals. And here's the mayor. Who blames it on who blames this whole thing on the president's and his willingness to cab federal help cut seven I've drawn a very hardline will not allow federal troops in our city. We will not tolerate unnamed agents, taking people off the street, violating their rights and holding them in custody. That's not happening here in Chicago, so I've drawn a very, very bright line. I've made that very clear to every federal authority that I have spoken with. And they understand that if they cross that line We will not hesitate to use every tool at our disposal to stop troops and unwanted agents in our city. So this woman who should be begging for help with 117,000 gang members, 55 known gangs 747 factions, and they say there are 2500 subsets of those major gangs. You think this won't be begging for help? Instead, she's drawing the line and went through. When push comes to shove, she'll take down Columbus a statue. What planet are we on, Ben? We're on a planet where one of the one of the tactics But that's being used by mayors across the country who are on the left is something that unauthorized infront Eagle, who would the counter of City Institute hey called the riot ideology. The basic idea here back in the 19 sixties, and that was the riots or sometimes useful because politicians will use them as a way to club the citizenry into essentially giving the rioters what they want. So Marion Barry technically did this in Washington, DC He wouldn't work with people outside the governments who are protesting, but actually, we're in Aged in violence, and then he would basically say that the taxpayer to do all these people will stop here to the five things you need to do this something John Lindsay in New York City during the 19 sixties. He basically said the way that we can help alleviate the underlying problems here and do all the things we want you to do. Well, if you're a leftist politicians, you have two possible sort of solutions here. One is that you surrender to the protesters simply because You are afraid that they are more work than you are. And that you're going to be castigated is insufficiently weapons. And at the same time you can go to the citizenry consideration. We can alleviate all these problems. All you have to do these things. I want you to know you're starting to see hints of this nationally. By the way, you're starting to see writers say things like, you know, it's awful. This is Trump resign tonight. You're saying that part out loud, Which is it? This whole thing is about you wanting what you want, and you're only going to stop this democratic elected So essentially, you're threatening the law abiding citizens of the United States. You're going to continue violating law and wrecking major cities and shutting down major cities in six PM and curfews unless you get what you want. Well, that's never believe him. Ocracy is operated and no democracy can operate under those conditions. So, Ben, do you get the sense in looking at your book? There are reasonable people in the middle that understand when a mayor Lightfoot says things the way they do way, understand that these liberal mayor's saying, this is going to be the summer of love in Portland and then see the ransacking of a city like we're seeing, and now we see it re re igniting in Seattle. So when do you get the sense that there's a majority of Americans who who don't care about the politics but a logical enough to see the problem? So I think that most Americans, definitely the problem. I think the biggest problem right now is that the media is such an incredible job of making intimate. Everybody's focusing on President Trump that they've ignored the real problems that are played in the country right now, and they're downplaying it purposefully in order to convince Americans that none of this is happening, how you get that, during that quote, where, he says there's no such thing as in chief of violence. And the only way that you could do that number one of your delusional but number two. If you really think that you could get away with that, and the media decided point again, which they have been playing, So do I think that the vast majority of Americans are happy to go along with us. No, I think the best majority Americans know that this is nonsense. But I think that the polarization around the election is so effective and so effective around President Trump. This is the media have basically been able to make this a referendum on Trump as opposed to a referendum on violence. And this is why it's very important to President Trump be incredibly focused last 100 days of this campaign he really needs Prevent the media from using distraction in order to avoid the logical conclusion here, which is that if you actually want this stuff to stop and not paid to rioters and looters and protesters, then what you actually need is somebody who is going to affect you wait longer. The president needs to make that message inescapable until you can offer the sort of distraction that maybe sometimes I wonder if you know one thing I have to say he's been pretty discipline. I thought he had a very good week last week. He definitely saw the change in messaging, and I do think 99 days in this In this world we're in is a lifetime. I agree. I agree. I think last week was much much better, and we just need to see that we just need to see them and we don't want this to become you know that that image from the Simpson nations work actually read that back to zero. Instead. What we just want is consistent level of solidity coming from the White House looking people have been, I think, begging for this from the beginning because President Trump's policies are actually quite popular. And when President Trump 16 script that he is quite popular, the problem is that he hasn't so if he can actually being here's the discouraging part. He's down in the polls. The encouragement He performed about badly de cluttering will have three months and just not not in terms of policy. But in terms of stuff he's been saying would mean that this is a low water mark, and you're going to see him rise in the polls are gonna start to see things tighten up a little bit at the very least before the election, and if he's disciplined, and if he can point to this he really has to do is point you say well, what Democrats are supporting worst. Joe Biden condemning these riots. Worthy. He's hiding in the basement. Where is it? You want to do an interview? Chris Wallace, it Trump can do that and be consistent about it. Then I think this election's been tied up with her. But I just think that we're not looking at Barack Obama had 5 48 years old with his his eloquent speech and promises that he couldn't fulfill. But you say Well, pretty talented guy, Bill Clinton. He had all his personal problems. But man, can he speak, and he certainly was comfortable on a myriad of issues. No one doubted his intellect. But when you look at Joe Biden, he's the worst candidate that I have seen in my lifetime. And if President Trump can close the gap and force him to actually campaign That would actually be an exponential gain for him. I mean, no question. I mean, Joe Biden is an extraordinarily we candidate who's being benefited by two particular circumstances. One Kobe has made it so he doesn't have to go out and campaign is actually benefiting him tremendously. He just gets to stay home and talk to friendly's basically was really nice for him. He doesn't have to demonstrate any level of potential energy. It all on number two is the fact that he's campaigning. As I said before, essentially the dead person. He's basically what you're saying. I am. A tree stump. And you don't like trump to vote for the tree stump. And so that makes it really a referendum on Trump, which means that this is very much about hands from shift the burden of proof back to buy as opposed to letting it sit on his own shoulders. So then, Lastly, you write the book how to destroy America in three easy steps. I felt as though I am well the book by just reading the news. Unfortunately, if the word destroyed does work, and it is getting, I think it's beginning TTO unnerve our allies. What's happening in our country right now. What is the element that we could see around the bend that would make you believe that we are on that path that we have not discussed yet? I think that the one thing that they would allow us to recover here is a renewed sense of what America's history is all about What the book really does juxtaposed to stations in the country. One is what I thought it's not really left right. So much of it is unions versus disintegration is Do we even want to be a country anymore? If we do we have to have a shared philosophy rooted in the declaration of Independence have assured culture rooted Masonic institutions like churches. And school that values entrepreneurship adventure that values taking care of neighbor. And then if we and we all have a shared history, we have to have a belief that the United States actually an incredibly glorious place. That glorious place ought to be of help. If we don't have those things were gonna fall apart. I think that can be re invoke ated. You've seen Antifa. I mean, they don't. They don't seem to like you. They seem to show up with some of your speeches. Are you seeing their imprint on, especially over in Oregon in Seattle? Hundreds. I mean, you can see all the hall marks mean There's certain things you just look for visually raising both flags. You see the You see the red flags You see people who are dressed, own blast at the bicycle helmet and the goggles. You know this is it's perfectly obvious to everybody that he was deeply involved in very active in Portland for years reporter and you know, it has pointed out another action in Seattle as well. Look at what you're going to see right now. And this is the most predictable effect is a mass, a mass evacuation of major setting two years to see everybody who can afford to leave these nature city. But his major said, because who wants to live there? I want to pay inordinate taxes in order. Get shut down in 68 every night watcher business burnout. It doesn't come in a party today. I think figure I never sent right as a broadcast from New York City virtually alone. There is nobody here, Uh, Bank. Congratulations on the book. How to destroy American. Three Easy steps, continue to get the word out and continue not to take a step backwards. Thanks. Appreciate it.
