I'm gonna mock chancellor now we've spoken about both of them before on the show but let's quickly go through each of them. Tell me more about arlette. I'm going to lash. It was elected leader of the christian democratic union. The main center right party in germany in january he is also the leader of north rhine-westphalia. And that's germany's big state. He's a moderate. A centrist source of in the the mold of angle markle whose leadership has supported resolutely the problem that lash it faces. Frankly is it. He's not very popular. His polling numbers are bad. They've been getting worse since january. He doesn't seem to have found very successful way to communicate his position particularly on the pandemic and polls show that he's far less attractive. Both for german voters more. Broadly also force importers all the conservative. Party's far less potential attractive candidate than his rival marco. And tell me more about him so marcus. Urda is the premier of bavaria in germany south. And he's also the leader of the christian social union. We have to briefly. Explain this slightly peculiar situation that we have in germany. Where the cd you. The main conservative party operates in fifteen of the sixteen states in germany in the sixteenth in bavaria. Their sister party. The issue operates has basically run the state more or less continuously. Since the establishment of the post-war republic leader of the issue has an odd position where they both the very strong regional politician but also have national stature because governs in the federal coalition. With the cd and marcus. Mariota has used that position quite successfully to build up a national profile. He likes to present himself as a plane speaker. He's a very good communicator. He seems to have an ability to reach out yonder bavaria. He's attracted a loss of support. Among conservative voters. In different parts of the state he positioned himself as a hawk on cove. It generally pushing his state and other states to take a tougher line. Aligning himself with angela. Merkel who's also been relatively hawkish on these things and one outcome of the pandemic is at. Marcus has become one of the most popular politicians in germany. Which is one reason. Why a lot of people think that he has a good chance of taking that job but the way you describe it in in a sense. Their prospects are very intimately tied to pandemic response. I mean how have they differed. Yeah i mean. This is basically been one of the kind of subplots of germany's management of covid nineteen throughout the last year. Basically because the system has involved the leaders of the states implementing agreements that are made at these regular summits every few weeks between the state leaders and the national leaders the role that the state leaders have been very very important and lashes desert have kind of the become representative of two different approaches to the pandemic lash it gen really urging a set of a softer calls skeptical about locking down too hard of wanting to open up. When incidents numbers four zurve has been much more on the hawkish side. In general that is a way in which they position themselves of the of the year of the pandemic so a lot being said about the diverging views and plans of these two men. But what about the the the national level response. Well basically. the plan is to this week. For parliament to amend a law that would give the federal government the power to impose the so-called emergency brake on regions when weekly numbers exceed one hundred cases per one hundred thousand population. And this is all under debate. This could change. But the draft law could impose germany's first national curfews would be quite a significant move. It talks about closing schools when caseloads reach over two hundred per one hundred thousand people touch restrictions on who you can meet perhaps compulsory testing in the workplace. The problem with this in my view. It's probably not going to be enough. And meanwhile when should. We expect a decision on the the contest between mr rashid. Mr soda soon. Probably this week maybe in the next day or two yesterday mark finally declared his interest in the job but this morning the presidium of the cdu which is the party's executive leadership body gave clear backing to army. Lash it to be chancellor candidate and that significantly narrows apothecary zodda to get the job. This may move quite quickly now. And this whole means that germany's election campaign can finally kick into gear now that the personnel issues are being sorted out the social democrats who are the junior coalition partner in the current government. Already have their candidate for the election. All are shots and the greens who are sitting in second place in opinion polls will choose their candidate in a week's time but that's just choosing party leaders and candidates for the election. How do you reckon the election would go. Is there a chance for a a post cd. Ucs you germany. Yes there is and this is really spooked to the party. Just before the pandemic the cdc s. You were in serious trouble. They were polling in about twenty six twenty seven percent a historic low the greens surging other parties. Who are doing quite well. Then we had the pandemic and we had a very reassuring angler merckel taking control of things are communicating the problems quite well to the country and the cdc issue saw up to close to forty percent remained at that level throughout the pandemic until about a month ago when the political management of the pandemic the wheels really started to fall off the of these squabbles between state leaders and national leaders the cd ucs you have lost their sheen of competent. And now it's almost as if the last year hasn't happened there back. Onto the twenty six twenty seven percent again about four or five percentage points ahead of the greens and of course when this decision for the chance of candidacies made in the next week or two then germans will finally be able to countenance a future without angola markle. And then. i think anything could happen. You know i mean. I think smart money is still probably the conservatives governing with the greens is a junior coalition partner but an awful lot could happen in the next five months so yes there are also of possibilities for coalitions that wouldn't include the conservatives that something that's basically been unimaginable the last year.

But when you get in the car I, it seems like you're quite effective You all seem pretty fast and even when you're falling out of the seat with crazy exhaustion, you still get good finishes. Really good runs, I've been able to work fifteen team mark Zeltser for the first few races this week heading up there with Wayne Carol crew chiefs that I've worked with in the past. So you know it's the really cool dynamic there really enjoyed racing with jd You know I mean for those you know my story you know it's just been a real incredible opportunity. You know it definitely opened up a lot of doors. Yeah. Definitely. The thing I think's really cool about you that a lot of people probably don't realize just from watching the race on TV each week is when you're not in the car, you're actually part of the the crew there jd motor sports. How much is that helped you as a driver to kind of understand what it takes to put the car on the track and. How's that just helps you overall an finding your place in the sport you know it's definitely kind of it's it's definitely helped the team dynamics by a lot You know I I started this year. You know just because I wanted to do it and you know now it's become like something that I really enjoy doing You know I've been working with Jeffrey on the team and case. And all boys and you know just learning off of them and you know listening to the radio hearing what he liked out of his race cars and stuff like that, and you know she's been really been to lean on those guys and you know being a part of the team on the car it really helps you get a get a respect for everything that goes into it. You know we. Growing up, it was just being my dad. You know when we did legend not legend than ever ran legend. Fanta larose stocks, late models you know it was just me and him you know until the later years and we start having health but you know it was it was mainly hit me and him, and so it definitely feels like how it was when I was you know if you're a few years ago when it was just me and my dad. and I'm getting that same feeling you know working with grady and working with those guys them learning the whole team dynamic and it's been a really really fun opportunity. That's awesome. Now, of course, this week you've got a little bit of of crazy stuff in store for your first time at Darlington that's going to be a bit culture shock. Yeah. You know it's it'll be my first time recently. I've been there twice now it's one of those tracks it's the bucket list track of mine and it definitely one of those really really tough racetracks that you just get the handle of I'm excited. It's going to be a steep learning curve and it's not going to be easy by any means but. I'm excited to get out there and the number six cranial Carrboro Chevy and really do what we can If a really enjoy all these opportunities I get and hope we get the more here later this year, and so you're running a really cool paints came also say throwback to Jimmy Johnson's Series? Scheme. that he got his only expanding series win in kind of talk about what made you choose that. That paint scheme and we're you Jimmy Johnson fan growing up. Oh Yeah. You know we were I'm a huge Jimmy, Johnson Fan. I. Was Jeff, Gordon Managing Johnston fan growing up and both guys. There's from California and you know you grow up knowing who Jimmy Johnson is, and now that he's a seven time champion in and is. On retiring at the end of this year it's just you know the perfect time the bus out of paint scheme like this and. Like I said, I'm a huge fan of Jimmy Johnson I loved the way he raised his the way he handles not just the way. He not just you know how we handle racing business professional life as well. That's something that I really admire and you know something I've tried to learn the more off of You always had a lot of respect for fellow competitors and you know has worked for it and that will you know I've had really rely on with my career you know we've been very close to having everything Kinda can come to. A halt. So I've had to really figure out how to get my footing in the sport and Jimmy Johnson's one of those guys that you kind of look at like that. Definitely, he's been a class act for his entire career and that's the kind of big takeaway. Obviously, he's a seven time champion. He's done a lot of things are legendary. He'll be a hall of Famer but at the end of the day, he's an awesome guy down lot for a lot of people and that's the thing that speaks even higher than than a success on track. You mentioned kind of just trying to find your footing in the sport and how things have. Not worked out for you here recently, how close was it to Ryan Vargas just kind of going back to California and saying, well, that's that's it. Well, you know, I'm Kinda like going to a little story here you know when? I lost my ride at racing at the end of two, thousand eighteen which you know it was an incredible opportunity and you know it was a business decision on there and it was a hundred percent understandable. You know it's just racing. You know when that happened, you know kind of left me. You know without an ideas what I was going to do you know I I got the word you know in Nid December early. December. May Mid November early December i. mean you really think about it you know. Contract thirty nine things already negotiated and all that stuff. So you know the whole idea of anything fulltime out the window and you know when you look at how expensive it is really run the arcus theories and how hard it is to sell any sponsorship for that It's tough. You know I lived on my own for a couple of months lived. You know when you move across the country, you know leave your family, leave your friends, go live on your own and chasers dream and have that dream really kinda come crumbling down It's tough. You know I, it gives you a lot about yourself. and I, jokingly say you know if I can make it through those few months of Absolute you know absolute l you know. I think we can make it a locker and. It's been an incredible opportunity for JD motorsports You know the opportunity that came up last year with Alec Martinez racing and Lee Falk racing late model stocks and just keep me in the seat with help them Lombardo grows gaming. When they sponsored me you know that was the first thing that Kinda came and saved my year and that's just opened up. So many more doors for me to go to like jd and you know they're improve what I can do and every race so far you know we've had we've had you know solid results I'd like to be better, but I also know that you know. I got to keep learning and it's that just comes with a product of time which you know unfortunately I don't get the most duck, but at that bracket Kinda get my drive to. Sponsorship ship and all that other stuff. Yeah and so you mentioned hunting sponsorship you've got a sponsor Kinda near and dear to your heart that's been on your car this this season. Cranial care bears can't talk about their organization and what they mean to you. we have cranial servers, and actually we also faces the national. Association both on a car They're both really really incredible organization bus cranial carriers. They raise awareness for families and kids going through you going through getty. and.

But I also feel like this is a celebration because it's a combination it's a combination of a seven year process of a man named Mark Zeltser being out on a street corner, not even really not even really inside the fantasy extravaganza. A guy who thought of fantasy heads were horses as he waited. For. Some sort of world ending event to happen, and then here we are in the middle of a pandemic, the world event. Ending event is here and there's mark embracing fantasy like never before look in the shade corner now fully gentrified and he's in out of the cold and he's talking ADP leading up to today's show. He's sitting in on mock drafts with strangers, and now here he is. With us for the first time ever on the extravaganza as a full-time member, you know it was it was about fifteen minutes ago that I had to ask Greg like what is site that you use to get the official ADP on these guys so I really view you guys like. Like. My parents taking me into into the big city for the first time kind of holding your hands and like all the big buildings and buses so I couldn't be more of a new but let's give it a go.

"His wife Kelly had brain surgery in the not too distant past she just had. A child this spring. So you wonder what Matthew Stafford's thinking right now we talked about this on Friday, show what a huge franchise altering decision. A franchise quarterback has in front of him. If he feels uncomfortable about playing I, have no idea where Stafford's at mentally right now on that but that's the situation and then your boy Mark Zeltser Gardner means you. He was added to the covid nineteen list by the JAGS along with. Four other players on the Jaguars. So Menchu's who's locked and loaded as their starter for twenty twenty in Jacksonville he also is in the same boat now, as Stafford waiting to get well and get back on the field I think part of it is worth thinking it's August there's all this time for conditioning and everyone will be in theory back in ready to go and September. But imagine if this were week seven and you lose Stafford Kennedy Golladay, we mentioned the last show, Tj Hopkinson, you're in theory you're. Blooming into productive tight end person right. So that's a huge chunk of your offense. Again, it just points to competitive imbalance for me and I you know losing a quarterback is one piece, but you could also lose four defensive linemen I. Mean I I WanNa be positive about this but I. Think it's tricky a scenario as by ten that we've ever encountered. Now the NFL's hoping that all this daily testing that they're finding people. That are testing positive in that the tests now that hopefully the players are coming in in their being safe that the the numbers are going to go down but it's hard not to notice that there are a little clustered the seven. Seven or eight teams haven't had any positive tests. But you got like the lions offense the you know you don't want to you don't want to guess what's going on, but they were working out separately like the NFL PA told them not to then there's been clusters on a couple of teams, Jaguars and lions and Vikings being being three of them. And your mind thinks about the the season and if that happened because in theory, the NFL like the virus knows what when the season starts there isn't that much really changing between naturally does. To jump in here, the virus is aware that September eighth kickoff on very excited about it. Well, it is excited about that. That would be good news but. Dramatic like whiplash of like Jaguars Dot com, and sending out like the slow motion video of Gardner Minhsiu on Instagram and twitter. Check out our instagram by the way around the NFL big pop for that right now. Ricky WH. What's the handle on that? Ricky? Come on it's at the end podcast. There you go. It's okay. So we got the we have we don't have any slow motion Gardner shots. and. It's like his hairs off flowing and it's like it. Just on the way to get like test positive for grove is I don't know there's something. That wasn't a beautiful minhsiu video, but there's something about it not I don't know what he's been doing with this off season but kind of felt like a ripe character to be. Blocked by the old corona dairy. What do you think because he's so charismatic that Krona virus going I mean I think that all sorts of things are attracting Gardner Men's shoe and as are probably area disease including one guy on the show. I think he's a great player or anything exciting character the NFL needs them right now. So I couldn't be more on his on his. Get better about that. I'm excited for you mark because moving in your moving you share photos of your new home that you move it into your family and it looks great. Very happy for you, guys. Thanks just so happens that chronic did send an e vite for the Thursday night kickoff, game, Texans, chiefs, they they're setting up a party at your house that night. So Watch out. I mean you know you'd think in past. Years it would be my dream to get not a really devastating version of corona but just a software kind of pulls. You see a lot of people sympathy and empathy about this guy's been through a lot. But it doesn't really attach you too hard. In this case I'm over it. I don't WanNA catch it I don't want my kids to catch or any of you it's it's lost its appeal. Bold stand. Okay. Good. Good lesson to learn the right just wants. To. Get. Out of here and put Patrick lay on here for the rest of this, what are you talking about it? I'm just saying you really going on a limb Yuda. Thanks guys corona virus. In, other news I would love this Kuroda virus but not much in twenty twenty. It's lost its its flash. Their News. It is good times to be a jets fan jets linebacker CJ Moseley who signed a massive free agent deal. entering the two thousand nineteen season, and then ripped up his groin in the opener and basically missed the whole season. He is now decided to opt out of the twenty twenty season. Source told, Rich. Amini was due to family health reasons Moseley his contract tolls you're gonNA hear that a lot with these different things and we're we'll talk about the opt-out situation in the NFL, which is murky right now in some people are not happy about it but Moseley who has four years left on his deal he ops. So what that means is he gets the stipend from the NFL one hundred fifty grand is that what it is that will be taken out of a future salary unless he has an underlying medical condition. And then next year, the contract toll. So he still has four years left. He doesn't have three years left and I. Did think it was an interesting before we get to what this means for the jets. Interesting. report I. Read from Mike Florio at pf t that there is a little bit of buzz and I'm not connecting this Moseley or anybody. That that some teams are unhappy that they have a feeling revived that some agents are trying to use the opt-out as leverage whether it be. For a contract extension or players who feel like they're not gonNA make team anyway. So they are opting out and taking the the money that is a report that I read I don't know what it means, but it did raise my eyebrows we'll put your name on it. Then that's a series I mean the people that are being sources for pf because that's a pretty serious accusation and I don't I don't see any like I don't see any specific players that anyone suspecting or fits that Mo because ultimately it's just running them unless they have a medical condition which no one's going to have a problem with like marcus cannon for instances officially. The second category where he's getting three hundred and fifty thousand dollars because was a former cancer survivor. It's just giving the money that they're going to get later. anyways. So if you're going to be like whispering about I don't now but put your name on. All right like that Greg and as far as the jets go mostly was supposed to be an important part of this defense. Obviously. So in the span of.

He has been raved about an. It's just it's i you know they needed someone to come in at linebacker and do what he's doing so good start for him and for all all the issues with the preseason and it is a tough product and then there's no reason for us to anyone we don't. We just be totally honest but that it needs fixes. One thing that i saw all that i would like to see more of in the preseason was having andrew. Cecilia no gets sean mcveigh on the headset during a rams defensive series and it you know it's such a covert coach culture. The coaches and you don't really get to hear what they're doing during games very often unless it's like bill parcells swearing at a ref or something but it was incredible. It was a brief segment to hear mcveigh just break down what he was seen and he was so just informative and interesting. I want like hours of that. The needs to be like a television station that offers that the entire game. We're never gonna get it because it's it's. It's they're never going to allow to happen but it wouldn't. It made football so much four interesting. I i like that too. I did tweet it out last night that i couldn't figure out who's sean mcvay sounded like and then it light bulbs frigging bon on jovi and if you know what bon jovi sounds likely talks. Check it out.

"Marcus thing these folks you and i are repressed by but the truth is it's just mark zeltser and what do i mean by that just listen zeus it seems has not improved at all in with technical progress now good philosophy ties to find out what other reasons for this condition all right hey are you with me are you with me here this is interesting right yes i think it's interesting i'm going to be doing this but are you this is important just just hear him out and stick with this notice how savvy he he's in making his thought sound appealing i'm even virtuous you're not against liberating people from oppression you know the oppression melissa in the current human condition are you here not for oppression are you well we we'd hope not but we critical theorists are we are merely innocently right we're honestly trying to discover the cause of the repression and the oppression got to know that if you want to be freed from right right what's so bad but look closely maybe this is obvious i feel like we have to say this critical philosophy michael theory does not seek to find out the causes for the oppression it declares the do we need to go back to our analogy we need to go back to michael jordan norway it declares the existence of the oppression parenthetically by definition going back to the analogy it declares the existence of says that all the best basketball players are from norway evidence is not assessed as a means to reach a verdict on the hypothesis you wanna put it that way rather the evidence is rediscovered recategorized rican figured reshaped so that it will seem to support the hypothesis no matter what anyb- any any baller you bring me that's why everywhere jacket looks he sees deception in everywhere there's excellent jackie's oppression not because it's actually out there to be found everywhere he looks it's because it exists as an unalterable principle in his mind and therefore governs his thinking and it does so by reinterpreting all data to reinforce conform to itself sorry it is what it is i mean you might say okay nick you might be right that critical theory you know rather than investigating the existence of the oppression you might be right that it declares the existence of the oppression prior to the investigation as you say prior to par to experiment prior to test party argument you wanna put it but you might say but what marku said nick was that critical theory seeks to find the causes of the oppression and that sounds like a potentially sincere and in scientific investigation doesn't i mean what's wrong with that well okay listen what's wrong with that is that just like critical fury declares the existence of the oppression it also declares in a more implicitly something way were the causes of the oppression the causes of the oppression is what power says fuko remember when we went down the list or the cause of the oppression is discourse says edward saieed remember or the cause of the oppression is supposedly objective moral norms says marcus right the cause of the oppression is daas copy tau says karl marx but not just the capital said marks right rather the sorry mode sorry broken record the very mode of consciousness of the putatively repressed and the putative oppressor why because that mode of consciousness that we thinking is fundamentally characterized by what by belief in real right you see and just like for simic has pointed out to soccer he's two thousand years earlier because the oppression runs that deep that deep in the mind right then it necessarily has to run to the very root of c society and culture because it's in the mind in which culture and society and political institutions social institutions are conceived of and stained so they're all infected with this oppression and therefore they must all be torn down for that reason and likewise this oppression is because it runs so deep according to their way of thinking that we can see here that it makes no sense for marco to say that critical philosophy looks for its causes it already knows the causes or thinks it does why because of necessity anywhere principles invoked an assumption assumed law enforced whether you know political or moral logical or mathematical yet mathematical why not actually more on that in a moment anywhere that's happening there must be pressure going on and it's happening everywhere and so we don't need to look for the causes of the oppression you might be wanting to stop me nick math math what are you talking about i i'll i'll play the game here listen let's break away for a second let me read you something a math education professor at the university of illinois argues that the teaching math subjects perpetuates white privilege because they were developed by the greeks and other europeans get a factually that's not quite correct you know but ignoring the factual point and looking at the conceptual in the in the logical point the influential point i wanted to point out to you here we said a couple episodes back you understand right that this term white privilege white privilege just now is a modern dan marcucci in get it politically correct way of asserting the class oppression that is implicit in marxism white privilege is the talk about that in our society an acceptable way in a politically correct way as we'll see in a moment with marco and we saw last episode to talk about it without really getting into what it actually is it's just the way of asserting the oppression if you accept this white privilege line you're accepting the picture of the world that marks is declaring on the first sentence of every piece everything he writes right you understand okay that's just listen to this listen to this because you might math listen quote mathematics itself operates as whiteness and quote professor rochelle gutierrez of the university of illinois rights episode we're gonna get to why they talk the way they talk and to do that you'll see some of them talking more than just this we'll get to it but just listen to this listen this professor who gets had it for doing and developing mathematics who is capable in mathematics and who is seen as a part of the mathematics mathematical community is generally viewed as white says professor qataris i'm sorry and you just have to stop go i've never really thought about i've never really seen mathematics as white it to me seems like numbers and quantities and relations between them and operations done on them that's to me seems what matters right she goes on school mathematics curriculum emphasizing terms like pythagorean theorem and pie perpetuate a perception that matthew alex was largely developed by greeks and other europeans she adds again no i i mean they articulated it there's anticipations of it and precursor curse elsewhere but like that's not important i don't remember learning a lot in math about the history just like the this was the guy right here this was the the school of thought out of which this idea sort of crystallized but no no no this is all evidence of oppression and therefore math itself not just not not just the way it's taught matt loss see the laws that govern the relations that's all oppressive rights established by white guys or greek or something you know whatever they were greek way back what were they back then back there by the sea lot of sun lot of salmon i dunno white i guess man anyway i'm not gonna keep man i really don't wanna go on i'm not gonna keep keep keep quoting her i just throw that out as evidence of of you know apply some evidence because i think you might have been flinching their way to say we're going too far here no we're not going to far i'm not the one going too far right all of its infected anywhere or that's happening anywhere such a principle laws being invoked or concluded or assumed there must be oppression going on and it's happening everywhere because you have to that's just a normal feature of human thought and so we don't need to look for the causes of oppression this is why what marcus saying is misleading he's not looking for the causes he's looking to construe whatever he finds as being caused by oppression so what does he mean he means that it's critical philosophy's job sorry it's it's for me he says it's critical philosophy's job it's this new breed of academic job is new breed of intellectual job to do to do what then two point society to what needs to be torn down to orchestrate and direct the destruction this is essentially the new marxist revolution this is this is the new form of marxist revolution this is why these guys that we've been describing mark houston and his lot and the italian guy's in the franchise this is this is this is what this is what they've settled into the intellectual academic world to do infect it to infiltrate it to pervade it with this outlook that we've described as being essentially marx's outlook and this is why look for the causes of this oppression he does not they do not neither in practice nor in principal would they could they look for the causes of the oppression because to look for something is to investigate right to be scientific it is to check its to observe it's to see if the thing is there the effect is there an inquiry into its causes he doesn't investigate he doesn't in he doesn't go out into the world and find the best basketball players and see if there from norway he declares that best basketball player the phrase the title best bet the descriptive best basketball player will be understood as meaning being from norway if you are good basketball player you are by definition from norway is exactly what marx does all human social interactions are by definition oppressive marks doesn't need to look for the causes of the oppression marcus says the same so he's lying he's mislead goes everywhere and identify is whatever it finds as being fundamentally oppressive and this is what's been happening in the university ever since these guys came in to the point where now you know when you when you hear these just nonsensical postmodern critical theory course titles and course descriptions and so on and so forth that's all that's all of this has all of these folks are fundamentally marxist in their outlook which means they proceed exactly as marx does exactly as marcus does they do not investigate or inquire there's no inquiry going on you think academia intellectual inquiry right the spirit of and there's no inquiry going on there has declaration proclamation fiat just like marks this is how the world is and if you don't agree you're not.
