Democrats Can't Produce One Proposal to Grow Our Economy
"Name one proposal One proposal That the Democrats have made that would grow our economy One proposal That would grow our economy Now we already saw last month the economy is contracting But you know none of these statistics probably matter to you because you see it in your own lives that the economy is contracting That your salary your income whatever source Pension whatever it is Can not keep up with the cost of living Even though they have they have fixed quote unquote the cost of living figures to not properly reflect the impact the government's having And so what I'm saying is you see what's happening with gasoline prices You see what's happening with food prices You see what's happening with shortages And it's only going to get worse

The American Marxist's Economic Plan
"The American Marxist when it comes to the economy are socialists I have disputed those who call this overall socialism because it's Marxism but their economic plan is different than their cultural plan and so forth and so on You can't call a cultural plan Socialism It's Marxism And he gave birth to socialism from an economic perspective Now that said you'll see what's happening You're living it Prior to Joe Biden being ensconced in the Oval Office You had these various sectors of the economy the industrial economy that were fairly effective and efficient They were working The production of oil and gasoline we were energy independent the production of electricity very rare brownouts and blackouts You saw steel mills working Iron mills working The securing of the border all these things going on in the nation Now here's the thing What these marxists with their socialist economic policies do is they drain these systems that were built by capitalists prior to these socialists having power or widespread power So they drain the oil reserves the strategic oil reserves They didn't produce it they drain it

The Left Is So Upset With Elon Musk
"The left is really upset with Elon Musk. Why are they upset with Elon Musk? Because he won't listen. He won't heal. He won't do what they need him to do. You know, when I have Briggs and I want to bring him right up to me, there's a German command called foos, which means get beside me and cut it out. You know, any dog owner Victor marks, you see with a dog. Get over here. Cut it out. It's actually another German word phooey. He's knock it off. It's very direct. That's how the left treats their own. And they've been saying to Elon Musk the last couple of weeks, foos, foos, get beside me, come to heal, and Elon's like, no. I'm not going to. Now the latest tabulations of where his net worth is, they kind of re tabulated every single day. It's about $221 billion today. He certainly has the net worth still to be able to purchase Twitter. We don't even know how valuable SpaceX is. SpaceX is probably way more valuable than anything they publicly disclose. Elon's going to be just fine. For those of you that are like, wow, Tesla stock is really down. I don't think he's going to have to take out a second mortgage anytime soon. However, it does dampen his potential purchasing power. But the left hates Elon because he will not be totally and completely blindly obedient to everything they tell him to do. You see, the way it's supposed to work. And by the way, Jeff Bezos is getting a little Elon Musk energy recently. I'm not a fan of Bezos, but Bezos is like angrily tweeting towards Biden too. He's like, hey, we as elites, we could think towards ourselves like, okay, Jeff Bezos, we'll see how long that lasts. We'll see if you keep on getting your Pentagon contracts. And Jeff Bezos will heal. Trust me. You want to talk about a guy who is all bark and no bite, that's Bezos. Elon Musk, he just might be wild and eccentric enough actually to challenge the regime. I think he

Danny Danon: Why a Strong Israel Matters to the U.S.
"Tell everybody why does it matter Why does Israel matter to the United States Why is a strong Israel matter to the United States Mark we live in the front lines So at the beginning we deal with the problem but at the end of the day the problems will achieve the U.S. take for example the issue of I want everybody know that today they know administration wants to sign a bill with a one again after what they did in 2015 So one might think well it's too far away It's not a problem for me It's a problem for Israel for the allied of the USA in the region But as a mistake it's a problem It's a problem for the American people as well because it guides for the one who will become nuclear Who knows where they will export the ideas the radical revolutionary ideas you can come to the shoulder of the U.S. as well So maybe for the short one people don't understand the importance of the connection but for the long run it's part of the U.S. but we happen to be in the front lines attending for the same values fighting the same enemies
David Catron: Will the Democrats Accept the Midterm Results?
"Now we were talking about elections And I mentioned some time ago a piece by David catron over there at the American spectator was a great piece with a Democrats except the midterm results And they're clearly laying the foundation for not accepting the results So they accuse you me and Trump have not accepting election results and yet that's what they're all about Anytime a Republican wins its due to some kind of corruption or races or something And you know you would think the bushes would understand this because the Democrats and the media considered him an president for the longest time as a result of the 2000 Electoral College win he didn't win the popular vote but the litigation that took place in Florida He was calling a legitimate president by most of the Democrats in most of the media but that was then and now bush loves being loved But he does point out does catron That the Democrats are likely to get whacked There is more than the usual bombast he says we're getting from these politicians And he also points out the criminalizing political opponents The New York Times with this January reports with this January 6th so called insurrection committee But he believes the increase steadily metastasized into a mccarthyite inquisition Based on the proposition that former president Trump in a long list of so called far right figures were involved in a criminal conspiracy To undermine the results of the 2020 election And that's where the Department of Justice is headed
What Our Future Looks Like With Electric Vehicles
"So what they'll do is they'll move most people to electric cars Eventually the outlaw Fossil fuel For use in automobiles vehicles And then once they have everybody stuck on electric vehicles we'll have our Brown on some blackouts So the limit how much you can drive and the limit what you can drive and then eventually limit how many automobiles a family can have and then eventually Then eventually the Department of Housing and urban development will really kick in heavy duty on the single-family homes and the suburban and extra verb areas Enforce people To live in smaller and smaller areas just for the health of the country For the health of the country These are slippery slopes and that's all they believe in are slippery slopes
Blaze Media: EVs Still Cause Massive Amounts of Emissions From Tires
"New study finds electric vehicles still cause massive amounts of climate harming emissions From tires this is also blaze media new study This is attracting a lot of tension The study published recently by emissions analytics A British base submissions testing firm found that under normal driving conditions particulate emissions from tires are an eye popping 1850 times greater Than from a tailpipe of a gas powered car The EPA defines particulate matter as solid particles and liquid droplets found in the air that are so small they can be inhaled And cause serious health problems And some are small enough to enter deep into the lungs and even soak into the bloodstream Now the particulate matter emitted from tires also pollutes the natural environment As larger particles cover the ground while smaller particles float into the air Half a ton of battery weight can result in tire emissions that are almost 400 more times greater Than real world tailpipe emissions everything else being equal The study says and the trend is heading in the wrong direction so far as Tyra missions go I never heard the tyrant missions before but what do I

"But over at blaze media Alex knits Berg points something out that I was unaware of Morgan J Freeman declared in a tweet on Monday quote being antiracist starts by admitting whiteness as a disease Freeman and individual describes himself as a TV producer filmmaker human rights and racial justice advocate Should not be confused with the famous actor who has the same name In response to someone who pointed out that his tweet comes across as quite racist You got that it's not the same as the actor In response to someone who pointed out that his tweet comes across as quite racist Freeman fire back reverse racism is a myth that doesn't exist The reason I'm reading this is to point out that it's not Morgan Freeman the actor Even though this guy says he's the actor Or says he's an actor And of course a civil rights advocate He declared that he's a TV producer filmmaker human rights and racial justice advocate And I think he did that purposely To confuse himself with Morgan Freeman the actor
Republican Leadership Never Took Madison Cawthorn Under Their Wing
"This young man Cawthorn who lost by really An eyelash And the Republican primary in the far west corner of North Carolina He may have had his faults It was a young man But the Republican leadership never took him under his wing You had former Republicans who were host on TV who were mouthpieces for their rhino brothers and sisters and just trashed the hell out of the guy Yet the drudge report trashing the hell out of the guy You had the Republican establishment in North Carolina trash in the hell out of the guy You had tell us the Republican senator who's a Mitch McConnell want to be trashed the hell out of the guy And just to show you what kind of a guy Donald Trump is he endorsed him in the final week or so of the campaign Even realizing it was going to be a tough race given all that had come He still endorsed him At a principle He's still endorsed him And he just conceded Unfortunately he lost So rather than take this young man who was in a terrible car accident so he lost the use of his legs from the hip down wheel wheelchair bound Rather than take him under the wing teach him the ropes and so forth and so on They went gunning for him Because that's what these bastards do
Kathy Barnette Attracted Conservative Votes but a Bad Personal History
"And by the way I like McCormick and Oz both of them I truly do I think either would be a great senator Either would be only told you that And I told you I'm not into this Barnett at all for a lot of reasons But again What I'm pointing out here is that look here's the thing Barnett attracted a lot of conservative votes I know why she attracted a lot of conservative votes Because people began to hear what she had to say during the debates It's not like she had a lot of money to play Commercials so forth And they liked what she had to say And the way she presented it and so did I But being unvetted as more information came out and that's the whole purpose of a primary just so you know It's the see if a candidate is strong enough to run into general election Otherwise there's no point in having a primary Just everybody would run She couldn't stand up to it And I don't mean because she wasn't strong She was strong But because her relatively recent past had some nasty stuff in it that reminded me quite frankly of joy Reid Again not ideologically But the comments and the way she made the comments

"Tell me Eric, why is relief factors so successful at lowering or eliminating pain? I'm often asked that question, the owners of relief factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right, designed to heal, and I agree with them. So the doctors who formulated relief factor for them selected the four best ingredients, yes, 100% drug free ingredients, each helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway, and that right there approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. So if you've got back pain, shoulder neck hip knee or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only 1995 to see if it will work for you. It works for me. It has for about 70% of the half a million people who've tried it and have ordered more, go to relief factor dot com or call 800 for relief to find out about this offer, feel the difference. Come to the time folks, welcome back. I'm talking to the author of the dumbest generation grows up. His name is Mark Bauer line. Mark, you just ended the last segment with a startling statistic. You said that something like 30% of 40 year olds go there. You were just you just mentioned it. This is a report I quote in the book from the urban institute. One third of millennial males will never have been married by age 40. That's a huge drop from the boomers, obviously. And it really is a demographic nightmare. I mean, you know, you want to say to the millennials, you guys know that when you hit retirement age, social security age, there aren't going to be enough young people to pay for you getting those monthly checks. And I take the absence of family formation or that the lower rates of family formation as a sign that young Americans, they don't really have a positive feel for the future. They don't feel like they're building anything or maybe when they were growing up, the family was not presented to them. As a place of support of comfort of sort of your own little world within the bigger world. And we all know how much progressivism in general has targeted the family, the family is a unit, it's a resistance to the totalitarian impulses of progressivism and we see this with the schools today where more and more teachers and school leaders administrators progressives all believe when your kids are in our schools, there are kids. They belong to us. So I think that part of what millennials has absorbed in terms of this family formation is political, but also it's pessimism, right? It's not I'm sacrificing for something bigger than myself..

"Arizona, and with state representative Mark Fincher. State represent more center marks vigilant have to repeat that so I can let that sink in. Ladies and gentlemen Mark and I are just talking about the CDC and one of the things that alerted mark to my comments in regards to starting this program and now 5 years into it. Was the contradiction from the CDC and Miami Beach in 2016 in regards to the Zika virus. Repeat for listeners, what you had just said about your opinion of it and what your knowledge is of the CDC. Well, I don't trust the CDC and it further make it through. I think that what they've done, they have demonstrated that they're more interested in seeing to it that the financial interests of big farmer are protected as opposed to the people in the United States. So there's a significant world hazard when individuals who are in a regulatory body, there's an argument as to whether or not the CDC is actually a regulatory body. The FDA has the very good. The CDC has an input into what the FDA does. Yeah, I mean, it's a government organization, right? It's not even officially government organization. I'm not sure exactly what classification it is, but it really disturbs me when you have individuals who are supposed to be, I'm sorry, who are on the government dime. People's dime. If a hand and regulation and they also have the ability to be an investor in the very company that or companies, class of companies, that they are supposed to be regulating. So there's moral hazard there. Do you serve your own interests or do you serve the interests of the people? If you're owning stock in big pharma and you're supposed to regulate and call out big pharma to protect the people, but you're receiving dividends and stock and rollovers and we got a problem with that. And I think that that should be the same thing that insider training, for example. Right. How is it that a congressman can go into Congress with two chefs to rub together and comes out a multi millionaire? Insider trading. Many I should say. There are at least a few. How might I put it this way? Congressman and women who have done the very same thing that Martha Stewart and they don't go to prison for it. How is it that people like Nancy Pelosi's husband? Diane Feinstein's husband. Their families, Joe Biden's family. How is it that they get over wealthy? When they're allegedly served to the people, false, because they positioned themselves to be there to get the drippings, if you will, off of the fat and roast. That's what I do. So that's my big issue with the CDC. And through this whole COVID thing, they have proven to me that they have they can't be trusted. They can not be trusted. And I don't trust. I don't trust the word that they say. They know full well that these masks that everybody's running around with. Do not do a damn thing because of the weave of the mask does not stop the level of particular matter that comes out of one's exhaust page. Yet they require everybody wear a mask. It's not about healthcare. It's about compliance. We're going to mandate that you wear a mask. Control. Control. Here's my response to that. Bugger off. 8 one. Mark is COVID-19. Is this set you with a 99% survival rate or 98% whatever it is? Is this a real true pandemic or is there something engineered? Behind this, that is that is again an objective, the objective might be a control. And let me insert this. There's an archbishop out of Rome. His name is vigano. That wrote a letter to Donald Trump while he was in office stating that the COVID-19 pandemic was engineered. I have a lot of respect for the attrition. I'm not a Catholic, but I tell you what that man is an international hero. He's an international hero. Because he has called out, but this is really about. Think about, let's walk through the whole vaccine thing. First of all, they come out with a vaccine and they say, oh, this is gonna save her. It's gonna prevent you from getting COVID and it's the best thing ever and we've got a whole bunch to choose from. Okay, the next thing you know, they tried the encouragement path. And then I worked for some help the majority of people said, and then of course you get this idiot Fauci come out and say, well, we've got to have herd immunity. Herd immunity is when you actually have the disease, you get over it, you develop antibodies and your body prepares for the next iteration of that disease. So they went from encouraging people while this is going to make you better. It'll keep you from getting sick. To then they had to it's kind of like when you're not standby for an airline play and they've oversold the flight. They start with flight watchers at a hundred bucks, and they go to two 50 didn't they go to $500. So now they've gone from an incentive for people to take the jab. Previously, it was well, we'll give you a $100 gift card to take it. Right. Then they went to $300. And then it's like free tickets to the Super Bowl and they didn't work. So then they went to, well, now it's going to have to be a mandatory job. You're going to have to take a jam and keep the loser job. We're going to force the military to give up their civil rights to take the jab. And if you don't take the jab, we're going to give you a dishonorable discharge. Wait a minute. We're refusing an unconstitutional order. Really, that's what your plan is. So now we're at this place where I think the CDC is proven. This isn't about public health. This is about political health. There are individuals, and I'm not a conspiracy guy. I mean, this is just, but there are some coincidences. There are people who want to exert their power, their authority, through mandates over the people. And I think the people around to them and now they're going to be in freak out load. It's like, well, we're going to have a new generation of this disease and it's going to be worse than ever. On the crime. Yeah, so there's.

"I've got the honor of speaking with Mark Ibrahim, former agent at the DEA who was suspended from the agency for the huge crime of being outside the capitol on January 6th. It's madness, but we have to talk about it. He's facing 15 years in prison for doing Jack, I believe, is the legal term for doing nothing. But we're living in crazy times and it's important for us to talk about it to get the facts out. Mark Ibrahim, I want to say that, first of all, as an American. I apologize that we're living in a country right now where we've allowed things to get to this place where people like you are being persecuted. It's a monstrous thing. I believe God is with us in this battle. And with you, and I want to say thank you again for being willing to come on. This program to talk about this because Americans need to know this is happening to folks like you to get the details. Now you said to me that you didn't really get in trouble until you appeared on Tucker Carlson to talk about this. When were you on Tucker Carlson? A couple of months ago. I went on when I was in fire, you know, I was just banded three times for my 11 participation in the January 6th riot is what I was told. And then I wasn't fired for that. I was fired for performance issues. And so Tucker Carlson got wind of this and he asked me to come on and I said, you know, it's preposterous that if you're gonna fire me for my alleged at least fire me for my alleged participation in the riot, right? But they just pretext in case they didn't find anything. They said, oh, performance issues. And that's it. So I went on just letting them know that, hey, it's not right. I love my country. I have a history of sort of my country. I was ROTC, you know, I wanted to be a chaplain and then I ended up becoming an intelligence officer. My mother wasn't a Pentagon on 9 11. My brother was an army Intel officer, and I followed him to federal law enforcement. He went FBI. I went DEA. I thought the DEA was a little more on the ground, boots on the ground, and you know, I kind of feel like the FBI are analysts with guns. But there's still some good people in the FBI and I have a long history of wanting to serve and love my country. My mom instilled in me. She's a Cuban migrant, and she came here as a child fleeing communism. And she instilled in me that we owe a debt to this nation. And that our freedom isn't free, and that we should serve. And my mom was on the independent on a 9 11, and she went back the next day. You know, she talks about some of her coworkers who weren't even in the building that claimed PTSD and didn't show up for work for 6 months. And my mom was a middle aged woman, went back the next day, wanting to support the infrastructure so that we could pay the people back that attacked us. And that's Paul, I hate treatment. That's called patriotism. And that's worrisome. We don't like patriotism anymore. It's scary. Look, you, I have a similar story in the sense of my mother escaped East Germany, communist East Germany, my father, left Greece, after the communists tried to take over that country. Immigrants to this country, particularly from places like that, teach their kids to love America to love freedom. And almost always, when I meet somebody who's they're from Cuba or whatever, they get American freedom better by far than most Americans get it. Because they understand where it can go. But of course, it's going there right now. And folks like you are being persecuted. Let me just ask you because you try to think about where's the logic. Somebody in the department of the DEA obviously had some issue with you. In other words, there are a lot of people that were at this event. You weren't rioting. So even when they call it a riot, there was tons of non rioting going on. You were there. Were you the kind of a person up to that point that you thought I have ideological enemies that they're people that they don't like me because maybe I'm too, I don't know what to Christian to loving America. What do you suppose got their nose out of joint so that if they had to suspend somebody, they're pointing at you? I think it was just the media misconstruing what happened and hyping it up and government agency, having a knee jerk reaction. And I mean, everybody there was branded a white supremacist insurrectionist. Everyone who was there was branded just people who hate America and are dangerous individuals. I've personally met lots of dangerous individuals and you know and it's just let me say dangerous individuals take the most dangerous course of action. Dangerous people who have a weapon will use it. My weapon was never on holster that day, right? Everyone was safer because of my gun. I offered to assist the FBI squad team stationed at the capitol building. And by the way, the FBI S.W.A.T. team does not get enough credit. They went into that building, not knowing how many shots were fired. How.

"Popped off this week about I want the ball more. I want to pick and roll more. I want to be more involved in the offense. That's cool. And I think you can probably do that a little bit. But what miles Turner gets the ball in an open space, I do not have a lot of confidence that he's going to make the correct read at the correct speed. Like I just don't so I don't know I bet the warriors look at both of those guys like yeah, interesting to price was right maybe. If the price is wrong to use a happy Gilmore reference with the price is wrong, maybe I'm not that interested. Well, if the price is wrong, then you've just lost basically all your tradeable assets, right? Like that's kind of that's the deal there. And I think you're right about Golden State as far as not being in a rush to do anything, figure out where they are from February 10th and if there's something that makes sense, you do it and if not, you roll with the current roster. Let's switch gears and sort of go around the trade landscape rapid fire. If you heard any concern from nets world about James Harden's impending free agency and the fact that the extension remains unsigned. No. Based on lack of teams with cap space and if it came to a problem where Hardin was going to decline that option and test free agency that you always have the sign and trade option out there to kind of recoup what you lost. Now my big my concern and this is not talking for the nets is that what's the number going to be? Is it still going to be $270 million for James Harden? Yep. Spoiler alert. Yes, it will. It will be all the money. Yeah. And it's funny someone asked me a question last night about shifting gears real quick. Bradley Beal. Would you still play Bradley Beal that contract or an extension or a mass supermarket? Yeah. I would. Can you imagine after all this rigmarole over the last three years of Bradley Beal rigmarole? I don't even know where rigmarole is, but it's not great to experience, I don't think. If Tommy shepherd said, hey, Bradley, let's have a meeting. You know, you're not playing as amazing as you have the last couple of years. It's a lot of money. You're gonna be in your early to mid 30s by the time this deal concludes. What do you think about like a little haircut? I know we've just been begging you to stay for like three straight years. What do you think about like, you take like 90% of your Mac? How do you think that would go over with Bradley? Well, probably wouldn't go over the option letter would probably be filed by his agent Mark barrel Steen. As far as for that, I don't think that would go over very well, but usually what happens with these extensions is that you're basically paying for the past, not what's going to happen down the road, and that's where you get yourself in the most trouble. But what are your options for teams? Like you just basically cross your fingers hopefully it works out and that player somehow reverts back to that all star harden man, but that's the commitment when Brooklyn made the trade. Did they think they were going to get the James Harden we see now? No, but their options are limited unless they do want to figure out the sign and trade method there. Like, I hear Philadelphia. I get it. I can think of one. I hear it. And it's out there and I know it's being talked about just based on the relationship with Daryl and James and stuff. And yeah, I mean, if the Simmons situation hasn't been resolved, I think that's something that you will probably look at when we get into the off season. And then Daryl and James would have to their tier four reunion where they sit down and talk about analytically sophisticated shot selection and you know it's the whole thing. I don't know who the hell knows. Well, that was my next question. Is there anything on Ben Simmons? Do we have anything? Is there anything? Is there anything going on? Because I haven't heard, I haven't heard anything. I think Indiana would and has kicked the tires, but without brogden, I just don't see a pathway to a deal there, Minnesota, same thing. I think both those things would have to be a three team deal. Portland clearly CJ is not going to get it done without a whole bundle of picks. To me, to me, the Simmons, CJ McCollum, and look, CJ comment that has a collapsed lung. So we don't even know when he's coming back. To me, the sweet spot where the rubber meets the road for both teams is McCollum, two first round picks, and we can fight about the protection and we will. But it's gotta be two. Two, two is better than one for Philly and three is too many for me if I'm Portland and I'm facing what might be some pain. Even if we get Simmons and nasir little or anthracites pick one. That's the package where I think if we can't if that's not a landing spot, then we do not have a landing spot that doesn't involve Damian Lillard. Yeah, I mean, I think that's the most that you can do, you know, certainly with you mentioned the pics as far as two, but from a from an appeal from Philly standpoint, it's like, you know, certainly a CJ because of the salary and certainly because of the value and then it's got to be one of the other young players because after that, Zach like, what's left, right? Covington doesn't do it for me. It doesn't fill in the, you know, a need. I mean, that I mean, there's so many guys that have been the Dennis Smith zeller Snell. Like.

"Is a spacing issue on offense that even lebron the greatest problem-solver in the history of the league. It's going to look ugly a lot because russ is just a terrible jump shooter. Who wants to take a lot of jump shots but to your other point like now. Wait quick interjection opener. Jack overnights against the warriors who could be starting dream on at the five and you could see a d at the fight like they're not going to have a static. Starting lineup as this year goes on. This is what i was about to say when the rubber meets the road dare playing. Anthony davis center like when when the chips are down when they're pushing it's just like it was in the bubble. They're playing anthony davis at center. I i am very interested to see sort of so. That's russ lebron. Ad and then two spots. I'm very interested to see who wins those two spots. The athletic had a big long story about the lakers last week when they talked about ellington and a reza being the favourite for those two spots if they started. Anthony davis at center. Which who knows if that's going to happen or not. I'm lake wayne ellington and trevor reza. Look those those guys might not make playoff rotations for some teams and they're gonna start for a championship contender and the same like deandre. Jordan literally did not make a playoff rotation for a team last year and then whoever is the other one is the shooting guard in in this formation. The same thing may or may not apply and then you zoom out. And you're like well. Lebron has made an entire career of give me one star and now to because rest for all. This false is still start. The guy made a run at all. Nba last year. I didn't vote for him. I don't think you really had a case. But he made a run at it. You give me those two. And like then put mike miller and mario chalmers around me. I'll make the finals put. Jr smith and thompson around me. I'll make the finals. Put alex caruso rajon. Rondo and casey all win the championship. Whatever it is. He's made a career of this. So all we all just worrying about nothing. And i just can't decide. I think part of the reason. I can't decide davis two reasons. You both number one. Lebron is almost thirty seven and is second all-time admits he's reaching uncharted territory of like you just can't be peak lebron forever right and number two russ's just such a unique player because he shoots all the time and i'm just not sure what he's going to be doing when lebron has the ball and there's two minutes left in a playoff game because lebron is going to have the ball like what is russell. Westbrook going to be doing so take the like. Is this still peak. Lebron take that one or the rest question. Pick whichever one of those reassure me that. This is all going to be okay. We'll start with a braun who looks great and went into his two a day off season regimen on his own. A month before training camp started rob pelinka reports. That lebron has trimmed down. I asked lebron about it. He was kept a close to the vest but he said listen. I'm always looking for ways to find an edge final margin as to source coast lebron. It's not necessarily that. He lost weight but he's added lean muscle which was like can regular humans. Do that can. We signed up for that. can i get. I don't need to look on the scale. What i way. But if i could add lead muscle is that possible. If you don't spend a million dollars per year on your body zach. Look into this. i don't know i don't know. Ask me mostly rescued the wrong person. I know how to add. Like i'd had fat fat experience that like from two thousand three onward but I think all those signs plus a lengthier off-season point to lebron. You had to go into the year assuming he will still be liberal while recognising that two of the last three seasons he suffered a major injury after prior to those three seasons never experiencing something like that in his basketball career is is pro basketball career. But i have to think. Because he's someone who continues to defy everything that okay. Lebron checkmark will be dominant will be a top ten player in the league top five and when it comes to the play offs will be the ultimate swiss army knife who can pick apart opposing defenses. Not only with his physicality skill but it mind the russ question is a bigger one for me but if there is a recognition that ross party or role is doing whatever you can to take the load off lebron the regular season in so he can have a better chance to be supernova lebron in the playoffs. And of course you're not going to be benched in those major moments but your role could be adjusted if you're cool with at and you're happy being la and you're happy you're getting the team back to a chance to be a title run but clear is gonna be still going through lebron ad when it matters most. Let's do it. And i think that's the way you can try to to make this thing work. Well that's part of the reason. I'm excited for this team. What you said about the regular season like that's all well and good russ is going to be just a fast break. Rampaging machine in the regular season. he's going to give them more of an allowance to rest. Lebron here there or at least a liferaft when lebron is is on the bench although it should be noted like the wizards were abysmally bad when he played without bradley beal year. That said anthony. Davis may also be part of those minutes. Maybe that's by the way. Let me stop right. Now is lebron receptive to like if if if like forget pelinka if jeanie buss came to him and said hey man you're second all-time minutes we're trying to win the championship. Can i really respect that. You wanna play eighty two games. I it's enormously awesome that you actually do care about the fan who's gonna attend one game. I'd be heartbroken. You don't play. We need you to play like sixty five games in thirty one minutes a game. Is he finally going to be receptive to that. Are they. even gonna ask him that question i would. I would be asking them that every day. If i ran the lakers now he has given the answer repeatedly in time i've covered him that the minutes is just something he flat out rejects because playing in a game is not the window from tip off at seven pm until the fourth quarter overtime ends. At ten thirty it is from the moment. He wakes up that morning of a game to post game and so to him. It's more about finding opportunities for days off than finding opportunities to cut minutes and to me that makes sense like okay. That's fine then. That's fine okay. So i say lebron can we get you to take fifteen games off and to me now. There is the rob of the nba looking to preserve its product. And making sure that when those rest games occur. It's not abc. Saturday night is not abc sunday. It's not primetime. Tnt on thursday. To make sure that we're still growing the sport because.

"Going into the season look every team is to some degree is trying to answer the same equation. Which is how do we put enough shooting on the floor without compromising our defense or flip it around. But you're defenses twenty-ninth in the nba for food. Twenty six for the season or something. How can we get enough. Good defenders on the floor without torpedoing are off when you have one of the greatest stretch bigs in nba history. In carlton's and that's what. Karl towns is tara easily. You might be the most versatile scoring big man ever in the nba. You do have a certain leeway in terms of putting non-shooters elsewhere to that point. Jared vanderbilt made one three last season. And i mentioned before if you asked me to predict their starting five minnesota starting five my first one i. I did their depth chart two weeks ago. Here's what i had. Beverly russell edwards beverly this is. This is two weeks ago john. It's allocated okay this evolution beverly russell edwards taurean prince and cat. I'm just thought okay. They'll go all shooting. They traded for beverly to start and their defensive bulldog at the point of attack. I think that's out. I think that. I think two of those three inch or two of those. Five answers are wrong. I think beverly and prints are wrong if you be right now to predict their starting five. Here's where i'm going de ngelo. Russell anthony edwards jaded mcdaniels. Jared vanderbilt karl anthony towns. I think they're going to try to defense toughness in the starting five in between mcdaniels. Who shot a decently. Last year on middling volume vanderbilt in edwards was thirty three percent on high volume but got better. I don't know that they have enough shooting in that lineup. And i don't know vanderbilt. Mcdaniels do enough to offset the defensive weakness of russell edwards towns. I just think the for the wolves. They're personnel is so weird that this offense defense balancing act is sort of more tricky and urgent for them than for other teams. Like every guy you plug in josh kogi okay. He doesn't really shoot at all. That hurts taurean prince. He shoots at the four. He's a problem. Defensively at the threes. Problem defensively okay. Beverly okay well offense. It's just there's just so many of these guys that have glaring holes that chris finches balancing act is going to be really tricky. But what do you think of my pillow. Edwards mcdaniels vanda cat prediction. I like it. i think that's the way that i would lean as well. Because i think that like you said one of the big problems of this roster construction is. There's too many one way players. You have know vanderbilt. A kogi guys like this. Who are all defense. All the time and can't really do anything offensively. Or you have russell edwards. You know towns to a degree who are all offense in. Don't bring a whole lot defensively so trying to balance that out. It's really hard i think. They that jada mcdaniels can be one of the few to tru two way players on their roster and so he fits then. I disagree by the way i like. I like him. I like it very much. I don't disagree and people have been raving about his off season in the summer and the strikes that he's making so So that's why like dick mcdaniels at the three. Then you bring beasley off the bench. Who is another one way player all offense but at least you get some buckets coming off of that bench in in a pseudo lou williams type role. He doesn't make plays off the dribble but he shoots and he can. He can score with that second unit. Beverly attached to him to help defensively one thing. That is interesting is that finch does really like to play the angela russell off the ball. So your initial inclination of patrick beverley and russell starting is not a bad one. He did it with jordan. Mclaughlin did it with ricky rubio and russell. He likes that so i think you could see him finishing that way because finch's said that he likes to finish smaller In start bigger. And so you could see beverly and russell together. You can see beasley out there at times. You see mcdaniels at the four instead of the three and things like that and he's gonna play around with that but as already in initial starting lineup..

Players now can extend after the second year of their anniversary. They can extend for more years. We've seen the supermax come into into play and and we're going to see this kind of for the next couple of years until probably zach. We get a new. Cba down the road and we'll probably see more tv money come in with a new tv contract. And then maybe the jason tatum and the bam out of bio and donovan. Mitchell guys who are in year one of their rookie extensions they might be that next great class to start teaming up right when we get maybe we get a cap spiked down the road and those guys are the next group but for the for the foreseeable future for the next couple of years. We're not going to see all stars in free agency. I i wrote in there. Twenty-six added a thirty three players selected in the all star game. The past two years are under contract through at least two thousand twenty three twenty four. So there's just were not going to be flooded and you mentioned this on on the jump and we when we talked about it last week. Where all star agency is really only a handful of teams right.

I mean it feels like play every year even without cap space with cap space but ways. I'm i'm afraid to go to florida. Bobby i'm just. I'm just i i feel like my i just sent miami and in my head.

Just be up in our bachelor pad for a while doing nothing and that would not have gone over well so i hope you enjoyed vegas. Yeah yeah the first phone call was my wife and i wanna come home. That was the first call. But but yeah i mean you mentioned the heat always play here and they've got that core locked up for the foreseeable future here but that's that's kind of the gist of the article. Is that you know that. Free agency for the all star level. Guys they're not they're not going out there. They're taking the money. The the best line of the article is an agent. Told me that basically sign now. Ask out later right like sign. Now take your money and then figure out what the situation is going to be two or three years. I'll go one further to bobby.

"It's what the title says journey to the source of consciousness And it's it's premise. Is that a. We've been looking in the wrong place. We've been focusing on co tickle functions functions. The cortex is a wonderful thing. That performs many fabulous a complex information processing tosses but it is not intrinsically conscious. It is it's consciousness is entirely derived from bringing stem arouse. The brain stem generates different solta consciousness from cognitive consciousness and that his feeling affect the best Emotions so since rains stemmer also is prerequisite full cognitive consciousness and since the cortex can infect before its functions without being conscious. It seems to me. That's really where we should look into the brain stem and To affect feelings. If we're going to understand what's a fundamental mechanism of consciousness is audible and when we when we do so we. It costs a very different lights on many scientific and philosophical problems a than if we approach the traditional way. Let's go back to the mind body. Dualization for a second and descartes's error so-called that That thinking is some sort of Phenomenology this dissociated from the body the fact that affect is at the core of consciousness is runs completely counter to that philosophical. Axiom that dictum. Right because the source of affect just going to ask you to speak about. This is the body. Yes the simplest forms of ethics. Aw how we come to needs. Let me just make dane. What's the defining feature of an affect is is that it has a goodness or badness what we technical valence and these good versus bad feelings which come in various categories at tell us how we doing in terms of our bodily needs so that tundra feels bad eating. When you're hungry feels good. Thirst feels bad benching. It feels good. Sleepiness feels bad of taking a arrested. Most circumstances feels good and and so on so basic quality of the fundamental polities of affect all bound up with the body. And so as you say the mind body dichotomy is is is has to be conceptualized very differently when it comes to affect which are which announced states of money to to to the mine discipline right and sort of drive thinking which is descartes's error that it was sort of disconnected from that a at very minimum you could modify his dictum to say well i think therefore guide creates matter that's capable of thinking that's about the best i can do with his axiom otherwise it sort of falls apart based on currently available neuro scientific understanding so So the brain stem you know i. I'm i'm having a little trouble with locating. I want to oversimplify this because it's such a complicated topic in reality. The brain brunssum are you saying is the source of consciousness or is the requisite signaling center for consciousness to develop because those are two very different phenomena correct. Yes well i. I want to just pick up on a word. You used a few moments ago which is drive the brain stem dry. It's the cortex. Yeah it literally makes demands upon the cortex to before work. Yeah so that that that victim of the cots that you cited. I would phrase it. I feel that for i am therefore i think nother words cognition is in the service of meeting our needs and the way in which we become aware of. Our needs is by feeling. Well i must tell you that that exact observation is what caught me in the fuel of addiction medicine. It's wire became fascinated with it. Because i got to witness every day disturbed thinking under the service of a false god in other words. The d. addiction at its core is a drive disorder. It's a it's a usurpation of the do it again. Part of the brain the survival system and the brain and the all the other sort of feel good centers. I mean there's there's the the wanting and the and the liking those are two different systems and to me the the wanting system was really the primary issue in what's taken over with an addiction and even when they don't like it they still want it and that disturbed that drives Credibly wild and disturbed thinking that the person who's under the influence of these altered motivations has no idea that the thinking is distorted or the what's driving the distorted thinking. I think that's a really excellent example of what we're talking about. Anybody who struggles with addiction knows the relative power of thinking versus feeling in the compulsive desire to imbibe these substances because of what they make us feel overrides the most obvious rational cognitive appraisal as to whether or not this is good for us. It say even when we think bad. I shouldn't do compelled and there's even a more fascinating part of this that i got to witness every day. Which is the it takes over the thinking so the thinking so somebody could be literally having no craving be not be thinking about using have been sober for four months and will announce to me. You know i i just. It's funny. I just called susie the other day and i think i need to go see susie and she's such a good friend. Susie supplied your f- and heroin. What are you talking about but no awareness that i mean. Obviously it's kind of an extreme example. Because suzy becomes coupled with the reward of heroin but even more things i need to move to san francisco guy interesting. That's where i belong or or go to san francisco to clear out my apartment all that under no sense of awareness on behalf of the patient that that's all part of the drive system staging them to us. They have no awareness of that. It's crazy it's it's why we tell people when they're early in recovery and you see all this crazy thinking primarily in the first year. Don't rely on your brain every thought you have will be under the service of this distorted motivation. You can't you can't rely on your thinking and people have grave difficulty with that particular country. You're in south africa right now. But in this country they have grave weird emotional reactions to the notion that their freedoms and freedom of thought and freedom a motivation is somehow something that can't be trusted and his terribly motivated terribly distorted ironic because This ugly elites statement to something right. That's right that's right. And again people. Think addictive is about the craving and the withdrawal that in-in-in-in another stinking thinking that goes on for a long time is what you're really at. The mercy of your brain starts telling you things are good ideas that will get you back to the disease anyway. Let let's leave addiction on the sideline here from medics. That's just an interesting and sort of extreme example. We're talking about can. Can you build your model of consciousness forward from affect and brain stem. Is i just before we leave that subject entirely. I just want to say it is a long history of using extreme states pathological states and as a window into the the the normal mechanised. Yep so you know. It's precisely because things lonzo fracture up said that you get to see something about our business works are that's that's not so easy to recognize him skins and let me interrupt and say that's not strictly the brain stuff..

"Guests mark. Brian mark. It's it's a pleasure. It's a pleasure to have you on I know that we've met way in the past and it's so nice that you can just reconnect with people like you. That are just good people and it feels like we. I know we haven't talked in a long time but it feels like we haven't missed the beat so it's nice. Thank you for joining me today. Right back at you feel the same way so tell me about like writing so you with a group you know you write songs for group You got a bunch of guys. Saying i like this. I don't like that and you probably have to collaborate a lot but when you write a solo album you've written. I think four now and so when you write a solo album. It's just you or do you have somebody saying like how many people do you bounce things off right so The way this this one worked out. Was that all of these songs that are on my fourth solo album or most of all of them were Pitched for the last two albums. So i did a lot of working out these songs in that process and when we do the hootie album we have sixty or eighty songs to pull from and we can only record like eighteen of them so There were several that. Were sitting there. That i felt like we're really worthy. And so that the process sort of honed. It down to knowing which twelve i was gonna do for my solo album. It was the best ones. That didn't make it to the you know. And it's subjective thing. It's like who knows what the best songs are. It's not really about that. it's about. I mean it is but it's about. What are the best songs for these four guys and so to make a hoodie out. What are the ones. Darius is enjoying singing. What are the ones that the ban has. The best grew on that kind of thing and so In so that process of weeds itself down and and once that was over with hootie than i kinda new right away which songs i wanted to do for my and an outside of that. I'm also writing all the time. There's a project. I did just recently a for a a rosa parks tribute within organization washington. Dc the Street mansion imagined undoing a reservoir tribute and they put me together with songwriter. Paul williams and came up with the rosa parks tribute song. And this is a line from it that just nick is amazing. Hope is a hunger that eight can't control. no i love that. we're eating a shirt. The legendary paul williams. You really want one. Yeah i can get him. You're probably a medium. I need a big double. But yes so i'm involved with the projects all the time trying to stay creative and try to express myself but also write about things like rosa parks things that matter. You know there are messages out there that need to be shared. Yeah i saw that you did something with denny hamlin. You've you've you've really tried to engage in all kinds of different projects. A you know just trying to research. You've been really busy like like. Who do you guys took a break. You've tried to really stay busy in in finding other projects for yourself is that was that very important to you. Yeah so obviously. When who'd he took a break it was like well.

I'm halfway but i got a long way to go. Yeah everything. I'm doing so so right on and it's just you know everybody. Once you get to the age fifty everybody's been through some shit in their life. Everybody no matter who you are and varying degrees or levels of crap that you have to survive. Go through in your life and you know Go through a midlife crisis. And i came out on the other end and now i really appreciate things in a way that i didn't before. That's where the album title came from. Midlife priceless instead of crisis. Yeah yeah no. That's that's awesome. How are your kids doing like i mean. Is that when you go on tour. Like i would go a saturday night to go. Play a game right and we. I'd be away one night but sometimes when you guys are torn you have to be away from your family for a long time. How does that affect you. Because i i would be hard for me it when i was younger and the kids were younger. It was there. Were definitely some difficult times with that. But from very early age they understood what i do and so we were able to manage that and now when i look at them as as young adults. I really think they're doing great i. I'm sure that there's something that happened. That will affect them. You know just like an yeah. They might have been counseling or therapy about it. who knows..

"Yeah and that energy that was finding from rock and roll could not replace that anywhere with sports. And so i just sort of sports thing fizzled out a little bit. And i went to the coach on my dad's recommendation told him. Hey i'm i'm more into music right now than basketball and i can't commit to you that i'm going to give the time i need to be a starter by senior year. And he said well thank you for coming to me and telling me that. And so i moved on and then senior year. I'm a jazz ensemble playing recital and the back of the room is the basketball coach watching me. And he came up to me after it. He's like man. I'm really impressed. That was the right choice and again. I really respect you for coming to me. And so it was a that was sort of a pivotal moment for me And a lotta for a lot of reasons And it was really really good advice from my dad and you know from there. I mean. I think that's just so progressive like your dad just had the forethought to say you know a lot of people say that they want the best writer kids but a lot of dads who are athletic and coaches. Like your dad. They don't want kids. Give up sports. I thought that's right. That's a great story. Gave you the ability to choose. Yeah i mean he can really see. My passion had shifted. And i couldn't even see i wouldn't think i was conscious of it. And he was he could see it so he kind of made me aware of it. He was right and you know never turned back after that. So when you were put in albums on or tape decks. I don't know what your little older than me. The whatever you relisted who. Who were you listening to it. And who who are you trying to emulate when you would play guitar. Yeah it was a lot of vinyl back then and a lot of zeppelin..

"And then there's a lot of talk about there being a thirty fifth anniversary of legend of zelda so we might see or get announcement of a video game package much like they recently did with Some mario titles where nintendo releases two or three of them together in a single package you know for the price of just like a regular game. I don't i don't really know which zillow the titles they could release was because pretty much remastered the the the main ones and and released them so a little bit of speculation about the nintendo switch. Rumor is that this new one is going to feature seven inch. Oled display with four k. Output when you have docked and then you're also going to the the processor is going to be much improved with that and the rumor is that it's going to be. It's going to release date of Either september of october of this year. So that's pretty pretty substantial. That would be probably the biggest news of three which is not really news because most publications expect that to happen. Most nintendo fans. And just you know. Fans of video games that are up on their information are expecting intendo to announce this next next week in gives release date in probably a price point as well. It'd probably be you know right at four ninety nine five hundred dollars but if it's a better switch than the than the current iteration with current nation is very good console having the capability of four k in in a bigger a bigger brighter screen. A better processor. That's worth the price admission. So i guess one of the bigger stories bit of news from this past week is that the never ending tidal.
