"Sorry, but I I am I'm just feel like I'm living in a dream and I so wish that my parents could have been with us. I lost my dad five years ago on my mom a few years before that, and they were just Such great supporters of me, You know, one of the first to go to college in my family, and they would be just so beside themselves with joy, and I like to think that you know they're celebrating this moment together. Knowing that I finally made it home after all these years with with my family now and I imagined and sorry for the passing of your parents, Ray, But I imagine that you know, part of that is because you probably grew up watching Channel nine together. You know? We sure did. I was sharing this story with rob feeder. A couple of days ago, and I have real vivid memory of watching Ray Rainer growing up and my little brother and I would get up early in the morning. We would get our bowl of cereal and we would turn on Ray Rainer and watch the Bugs Bunny cartoons and And watch Ray doing his bit with cuddly Dudley and Chauncey the duck and there was my older are older brother who would go off to the school, he went to throw Ridge high school. And that was really how we started our day and then and then, lunch time was, um, Bozo's circus. And then it was naptime. So I'm really showing you how how young I started watching TV. I'm have a TV baby from the 19 seventies. Yeah. Cubs fans. Sox fan I don't want to split your viewers already. But you know, people always want to know that that is a tough one, isn't it? There's no easy way because you don't want to alienate. You know, half the people that you know, in love on D. I hope that doesn't happen because I truly grew up. Watching the White Sox because that was all I ever really knew. You know why? It was a great great time to grow up in the south suburbs because You know, Comiskey Park wasn't that far. In fact, we would take school bus trips to watch the games. And so that was all I really knew. Um My friends and I we always watch the Cubs. Yeah, I think it was part of that that Channel line experience and so we watch the cubs and then I married my wife, the North side or she grew up in Rogers Park and Evanston. And I don't think I'd even really been to a Cubs game until until we started dating. But I then understood what all the excitement was about. And Was already a Cubs fan before that, because all my friends were and that's what we would watch. We joked about you know, we would all fantasize. You know, my dad's Bill Buckner and I came back when my dad's Dave Kingman and those there's some old time you know, Cubs players and so I I've always sort of gravitated to the Cubs. But You know, when I was in Indianapolis for the last 20 years, I watched with such joy and and and believe when, when the White Sox were in the world, Syriza's I felt that that same sense, though, When, um When Steve Bartman no. Grab that foul ball from Moises Alou. Alright. Where are you taking me here? You know, I always a shared experience. Exactly that zeal calling. Yeah, that comes stocks. Questions always intrude. But, you know, I think Chicago and respect someone that just has their side. They're okay with it while they respect the other side Do we got a little time left? But, you know, just First right before you. Come on. We have breaking news, you know, used to be in the old days By the five o'clock news. You are pretty well set up. I want the news is gonna be you guys have got to have your heads on the swivel or at 956 and 10 because news breaks 24 hours Now I was sitting at my desk. I was in all last week, sort of behind the scenes getting a feel for this newsroom. When the news broke that the president not only had the covert diagnosis but was making his way to Walter Reed from the White House, and we were on wall to wall and you're right. It It does illustrate it. I looked. I was just looking at a list of all of the White House officials who Just until a couple of days ago, had tested negative after the president's diagnosis and Kayleigh Mcenany was on that list of negatives. And now we have to move her over to that list of positives is you guys were remarking moments ago? Yeah, we'll just have to wait and see. I will. I'm glad we can trust you. It's great to have a Chicago guy back and W g n Channel nine Monday through Friday, 569 and 10 always working hard rate. Good luck. Thanks so much, John. Thank you. I really appreciate that. Take care of it. You're listening to Chicago's afternoon news here on 7 20, WGN as we inch closer and closer to the weekend. It's five o'clock somewhere. Wait his five o'clock almost everywhere, right, Michael Blum. Exactly. Michael Blum is on the phone line because he collects whiskey. Michael, Welcome to the afternoon lunch. To pleasure be with you. Thank you. Okay, so we'll get to the conclusion where you are today, But tell me about the whiskey collecting. How did that could start? I mean, a lot of us collect whiskey, but we don't keep it very long. Right? Well, I loved finding different flavors and whiskey. And so when you do that, you buy a bottle. For that reason you don't go through it all at once. I also like sharing what I find on especially unusual whiskeys whiskeys from states other than Kentucky and Tennessee, for instance, So yeah, that the collection of open bottles and that's I think something unusual. The collection of open bottles that stay at least partially full. Is key to what I've done. Okay, So you're in Kentucky, You're buying bourbon, right? Yeah. Goodbye. Yeah, or right. Okay. How about if you are in Nevada. Nevada has some fantastic rises well right now. OK, son. Tell me, So you're going from state to state? Are you buying these personally? Are you ordering them? So that's a great question. So essentially over many years, my collection grew to have over 20 whiskeys from different states from this country, and I looked at that collection. I said, Wait, what would it take Textually Go to all 50. And before I actually had that idea. I had started blending at home to actually do things differently than just drink a whiskey as it as it came, and many of these were Cesaire phenomenal to drink on their own. Um, there's fantastic single malts, even in the Scottish or Irish style, better made in states like Washington state or are again, for instance, are most of the whiskey's You're buying blended. Already know fact, every whiskey that this part of this 50 state project is actually, um, distilled in that state, And with only a couple of exceptions like white, they are, um, on their own, not blended with anything else. So they either a bourbon awry American whiskey or something similar. Interrupted you. I think that you were saying you did you visit all 50 states. I haven't I did. I did come by many of these whiskeys by buying them myself in the state, But we're also in Chicago, and I'm Chicago guy on I am. Benefit from the fact that we have good distribution here in the state s so many of them probably about 16 18 came from right here in Chicago. So you said you had been blending whiskey before right? Mm. Okay. I don't know anything really about whiskey into Scotland and Ireland, so I know that they spell it differently in each country. That's about the extent of my college that that he really is a pesky thing. They fight over the, um No. He in Scotland right when he is in Ireland, I think, but that's correct. But I always thought the blended was a step down from the from the pure single mall. You know what on I will claim to be a whiskey snob at times as well. But here's the thing. The reason why blended gets a bad rap is that the very first blended doesn't really exist in the U. S. So it's not something we do with our whiskeys, blending whiskey from one distillery and another in a single bottle, Little to let alone 50. I didn't know that. Um, yeah, It's really, really done. There are some people who do it well, Barrel Bourbon has made a reputation for themselves two R's two l's Focus. We're talking about letters that and they blend things from different states..

"In case. Ah, the intercept here anyway, Mama, Jenny. It's a tough one. Wow, I can usually knitting that coming to me. Plagued the national press generally have engulfed the media outlet, I cofounded, culminating in censorship of my own articles. Can you imagine how frustrating that's got to be to have the website the company that you created? Turn against you like this. He says. Today I sent my intention to resign from the intercept The news outlet I co founded in 2013 with Jeremy Scahill, Laura Poitras, as well as from its parent company. First Look, Media. Final precipitating cause Is that the intercepts editors in violation of my contract Shewell right of editorial freedom, So we had an agreement with these people censored an article I wrote this week. Refusing to publish it unless I remove all sections critical of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. Wow, the candidate who has vehemently supported by all of the New York based intercept editors involved in this effort at suppression. Well, how can you criticize Joe Biden and he is he is the greatest senile child molester who has ever running for president. Yeah. The censored article, based on recently revealed emails and witness testimony raised critical questions about Biden's conduct, not content to simply prevent publication of this article at the media outlet, I cofounded thes intercept editors also demanded that I refrain from exercising a separate contractual right. To publish this article with any other publication, so they intercepted him on the way to the market while they were trying to work. He's going to do it anyway. Obviously, a Z will say here later, so I'm not actually seen that article. Yet. This is just his article, prefacing. The the actual news piece about Joe Biden. Now he's himself has become news Grand. Greenwell did not kill himself. I had no objection, he says to their disagreement with my views of what this Biden evidence shows. As a last ditch attempt to avoid being censored. I encourage them to air their disagreements with me by writing their own articles. Yes, dealing with newspapers used to do this magazine's used to this point counterpoint. They have different opinions alongside one another and let their readers make the determination. Yeah, it's not good enough for her left a stew to speak out against you, though they have to silence you, and that's what he's been experiencing. He's so he said. Write your own articles. Critique My perspectives. Let readers decide who's right the way any confident and healthy media outlet would But modern media outlets do not air descent. So censorship of my article rather than engagement with it was the path ease. Biden supporting editors chose the censored article will be published on this page again. His new website is Greenwald dot sub stack dot com. Shortly, he says on it looks like it looks like he has indeed now published that article. Hey, says my letter of intent to resign, which I sent this morning to first look, media is Michael Blum President Michael Blum is published below. As of now, I'll be publishing my journalism here on sub stacked where numerous other journalists, including my good friend, the great intrepid reporter, Matt Taibbi. Have come in order to practice journalism free of the increasingly repressive climate that is engulfing national mainstream media outlets across the country. He says. This was not an easy choice. I'm voluntarily sacrificing the support of a large institution and guaranteed salary in exchange for nothing other than a belief that there are enough people who believe in the virtues of independent journalism and the need for free discourse who will be willing to support my work. By subscribing. So this is Probably something you're going to see more of mortgage Erna lists who hopefully are like real journalists who don't want to have their words suppressed by the publications that they work for stepping out. And taking this this risk because it is, you know, a scary thing. Tio leave the corporate fold, right if you've never done your own thing before, to be able to get out there and do your thing with no restrictions. But also no guarantees. That's kind of a it's it's. It's a scary cliff to walk off, you know. Sounds like freedom it ISS. It is projections. No guarantees. Yep. And he's willing to make that choice. As he points out. It was not easy. Ah, like anyone with young Children, a family and numerous obligations. I do this with some trepidation, but also with the conviction that there is no other choice. I could not sleep at night, knowing that I allowed any institution to censor what I want to say and believe list of all the media outlet. I cofounded with the explicit goal of ensuring this never happens to other journalists. Let alone to me, let alone because I have written an article critical of a powerful Democratic politician vehemently supported by the editors of the imminent national rather in the imminent national election. A while. And there's there's more to this. But you know kudos to him for having the courage to make this move and to come out publicly about this, and it's just so sad and so common. For individuals who have created a thing. And then they turn this thing over to a board of directors and they completely lose control of the thing that they created. And it turns. To the opposite of Thie creators, original intentions. That's what's happened here, and it didn't even take a decade. Yeah. This website was founded in 2013. Wow..

"Michael Blum. Exactly. Michael Blum is on the phone line because he collects was he, Michael? Welcome to the afternoon lunch. A pleasure to be with you. Thank you. Okay, so I will get to the conclusion where you are today, But tell me about the whiskey collecting. How did that could start? I mean, a lot of us collect whiskey, but we don't keep it very long.

The collection of open bottles that stay at least partially full. Is a key to what I've done. Okay, So you're in Kentucky, You're buying bourbon, right? Yeah. Well, bye. Yeah. Or rye? Okay. How about if you are in Nevada. Nevada has some fantastic rise as well right now. Okay, Some tell it, so you're going from state to state? Are you buying these personally? Are you ordering them? So that's a good question. So essentially over many years, my collection grew to have over 20 whiskey's from different states from this country, and I looked at that collection. I said, Wait, what would it take to actually go to all 50? And before I Actually have that idea. I had started blending at home to actually do things differently than just drink a whisky as it became, and many of these with Caesar phenomenal strength on their own. There's fantastic single malt, even the Scottish or Irish style better made in states like Washington State. O'Rourke and Princeton are most of the whiskey's You're buying. Blended already Know fact, every whiskey that miss part of this 50 State project. You've actually distilled in that state And with only a couple of exceptions, like Hawaii, they are, um on their own, not blend it with anything else. So they either Bourbon Arai American whiskey or something similar. I interrupted you, I think, but you were saying you did you visit all 50 states. I haven't. I did, um, did come by many of these whiskeys by buying myself in state, but we're also in Chicago. And I'm a Chicago guy on I, um Benefit from the fact that we have good distribution here in the state. So many of them probably about 16 18 came from right here in Chicago. So you said you had been blending whiskey before right? Okay? I don't know anything really about whisky have been to Scotland in Ireland, so I know that they spell it differently in each country. That's about the extent of my knowledge. Yeah, that he really is a pesky thing. Life. They fight over the No in Scotland, right one in Ireland, I think, but that's correct. But I always thought the blended was a step down from the from the pure single mall. You know it on. I will claim to be a whiskey snob, but times as well. But here's the thing. The reason why blend it gets a bad rap is that the very first blended doesn't really exist in the U. S. So it's not something we do with our whiskey's blending of whiskey from one distillery and another in a single bottle. Little too little on 50. I didn't know that. Yeah, it's red really done there. Some people who do it well. Barrel bourbon is has made a reputation for themselves two R's two outs. We're talking about letters that and they blend things from different states. But the sometimes is a special project like the one that feuded with Ah With Mississippi. Miss February distilling and two other distilleries around the country as a special four Kings released But honestly, blending doesn't happen much in the U. S. It happens in Scotland a lot people drink Johnnie Walker red or black. Those of Glen's jurors is a blend, and we think those is things we know what they're going to taste like when they're behind the book, right. OK, so they're kind of blended for consistency and They tend to be a bit more affordable than that single mom that whiskey kicks. Yes, Included would go after. But when it comes to blend sometimes blends have a bad rap because it doesn't need to be all whiskey in that bottle in Canada. There's some great whiskeys coming out of Canada. But in Canada, you can blend essentially neutral great spirits or vodka with some whiskey and call it whiskey. And so they were like, I don't want that. Okay. Don't mess with my Canadian club. Exactly. I mean, again. Canadian club is something you know what it's going to taste like that space for cocktails. Right? So what I what I do with blends is I actually like telling a story with my glands? And so that Khun B. Every state that my daughter had visited by the time she was 13, So when I made a bomb, it's for blend for giving to the guests Enter bat mitzvah. It was every state that she'd been to in every country for those and all in a glass, and people could taste like a story of where she's been in her short life. So fly, um so those kinds of storytelling Glenn's usually having to do with geography, kind of what I was doing, and then also blending things that I thought just Sawsan together like rooms and rise together and sweet. That hits lots of people's palates. And rather than being a cocktail, Uh, a bartender that specializes in hotels. What I'm really doing is just working with Spirit himself. So we're using the verb blend are we just sort of mixing these in a bottle? Or is there some more process to it? Great question. So when I do this, I actually figure out which proportions of the different ingredients that I want to use in order to come up with a taste profile that not only tells a good story, but really tastes good. And so there's the blending and measuring to get that, But I also love finishing what I create in small barrels that some people out there might have a one litre barrel two litre barrel that they finish Apple cider in. We're trying to make a poor man's pappy or something like that. But by blending the ingredients that go into these more expensive Ronald's and trying to age them themselves challenging thing with these little by barrels, that a lot of evaporation happens. You leave something in there too long, just like wood. So it's kind of that extra Michael a challenge. But I have for my 50 state Glen. So all 50 states whiskeys distilled in every single one of the 50 States plus DC, so 51 8. I have a new toasted five litre bell that I've been using, just for that. And so that after I blend my graft have done several different versions of this. I'll put it into that bell and let it age and mouth and marry so that all the flavours kind of get to know one inch up one another right before I actually Michael Show we've got 30 seconds left. You can't sell this right. You just enjoy it with friends. Yeah, I have also auction it up for charity. So can that and in a couple of tasting events that I can share this part of out of them, and I shared the story about 50 State. Blend at 50 stateline dot com. 50 State, glenn dot com You Sonic a fascinating guy. I'm.

"W G N and I'm glad you are. I'm Steve Bertrand. Thanks very much for tuning in. We'll talk coming up later this half hour. With Michael Blum. Michael Blum is a whisky collector, and he blends his own whisky. And so he decided that he would collect a bottle of whiskey from each of the 50 states and then blended. So it's a 50 state blend of whisky and thank God he's on the phone, so I'm not going to try it. I don't know if I could handle that. Another friend is on the phone. Gary Mills is a Chicago playwright. Who's got a new venture going so you know, interested in these times how creative people find different ways to share or express their message. Gary, Welcome to the afternoon news. Thank you so much excited to be on. I'm glad you're here. So tell me about well first tell me about the the theater group collaboration because I think there's a message behind that name. Yeah, Collaboration is a great Chicago Theatre companies that is focused on social justice. So all of their shows take place down in either Wicker park or Down in Englewood Kennedy King colleges where they premiere most of their works over the last couple of years. How long they've been around? They've been around at least 25 years. I think, OK, Yeah, I didn't know that. Okay, So your playwright have written about what 230 plays 240 plays not quite that many. But quite a few. And so the new one has lift every voice Tell me about it. Yeah, it's called lift every voice. They wrote it with Chicago rapper name Prince Rock. He's my writing partner, and it's based on a true incident had actually happened out of selective enrollment school in Chicago. My daughters went to school there. Basically, What happened is they came home from school one day and said the student had voted to stop singing the national anthem and the beginning of school. And so they stopped playing it, You know, they stopped playing at the beginning of school and then February 1st. All of a sudden the principal comes over the announcement says students Welcome to February 1st first day of black History Month We're gonna be something a little different today. Please stand for the singing of the black national anthem, lift every voice and Lift every voice and most of kids looked at each other. Like we've never heard of that. What is that? What is the song coming over the speakers, right. This was a year ago a year ago, February before the pandemic. Before all of that, and A girl, a white girl at the school while the song was playing, took out her phone and sent a private Snapchat message to a group of friends. And what she said in the message. Wass. If we can't play the American national anthem, they shouldn't be able to play the black national anthem and she present one of the girls in the private chat group was furious that she would say something like that took a screenshot of it and sent it out to the whole school and shamed her. And change. Her school went went crazy. There were death threats against the girl who sent the Snapchat message had to be taken security. It became this huge thing. So my daughter's Prince Rock and I were working on a different play. At the time at my house. My daughter came home to tell my story. We looked at each other. Prince Rock and I were like that's got to be a play. That would be a great play. So we wrote this Take a lift every voice based on that incident. It's all set at a student council meeting with the six members of the Student Council Bad Day that it happened and they have to try to figure out how they move forward through this event. When did you complete the play? We completed the play about a year and a half ago, and so then when it and then we come upon this year of George Floyd in all of this, right, right, right. And so the play opened it actually played at Kennedy King College in January of this year on stage And it was great had a great run. And then, of course code had happened so they couldn't re mounted. They couldn't show it again. And so Rob Colbert, who you know my previous writing partner. Keep keep. He was there opening night. He said to me, you know this summer, he said, Hey, lift. Every voice is more important now than it was when it opened. He said. What? You should do it. You should rewrite it Adapted to now. And said it during co bid on a student council meeting on Zoom and so that's what you did. So that's what we did, so we re adapted it. We went back to collaborate action the producers and said, Hey, you want to you want to produce it again and it? It transferred perfectly into this new zoom reality. So that's what it is. We're doing it three nights. With the original cast is all back on the first night is tonight. The first face donated seven o'clock tomorrow night at seven o'clock Sunday at 3 P.m.. Tickets are free, So it's like watching the zoom call, but the City Council meeting are Student council meeting. Yes. So what people say is people who have have seen the run through. Doesn't say it's like being on a zoom call that you're not supposed to be right. You shouldn't be here. Okay, so I didn't know this until after your book. So this isn't the reason why you're on this show, but w g N is mentioned in the play. Yeah, I totally forgot that there is a mention of Wdun radio in the play. It's one of my favorite fits in the play. And it's actually Brian Dennehy, the great Tony Award, winning his grand his grandson, Jack Lancaster in the play and actually have the line about W. Jin radio. It's anybody who its object in its favorable right. It's very careful, though. It's really cute. It's a really fun moment. All right. So how do people watch this play? Then? Tonight or over the weekend? You go to collaborate action dot or GE that is their website and then just go to tickets and just reserve a free ticket. They'll send you a link. And then you can come on. Watch a show if it's 24 minutes. So it's a one act great cashed, And then.

"W. J. R here. Special guest host M L L. Rick. Hey, my friend. It's great to be with you here in the guy Gordon show. We have a terrific couple hours lined up. You just heard from Peter Body, the editor of the Detroit Free Press Talking about anonymous sources. I think you can find that if you missed it on our Web site W jr dot com Next hour, we're going to be joined by Lomas Brown, who sat through yet another terrible lions game, so I don't know. If that really helps narrow down when that game happened or not, and we'll be joined by Detroit Free Press reporter treats a ball this who has been trying like 100,000, Michiganians or Michiganders. If you prefer to get her unemployment check, and she wrote about her experience, and there's some information there that you may be able to use and you may be able to identify with. But first of all, we want to get through some more. Your calls here one hard 859095718590 W. J. I'm so glad to see so many people. Reaching out to us. I want just address a quick point by Brad from an orbit, said Trump gets small, positive coverage, but the negative is bigger. And I want to tell you a little something about a theory that I have. They talk a lot about on my podcast they talk about when I go see community groups. Trump and chronic Kilpatrick are almost exactly the same. They're constantly criticizing and trying to diminish the media because they can't fight the facts, so their whole thing is not To try and fight the truth, but to try and fight the truth tellers and I say that not because I'm trying to diminish President Trump. I'm saying it because I've seen this happen when Democrats were in charge, and I have seen on seeing it happened when a Republican is in charge. Never do they ask for a correction. Never do They tell you what really happened. That is try and make you think that people like myself and my colleagues at the free press and in the broadcast media are lying to them. But they can't tell you what the lions so I just want to suggest to you. Maybe the lye is on their lips, and I'll just say one other thing. Brad mentioned that Trump does get some positive coverage. And I appreciate you acknowledging that, he says the negative coverage is bigger again. I'm going to use my crummy Kilpatrick analogy because there are a lot of negative stories about Kwamie Kilpatrick. I think we all know now that it's because crummy Kilpatrick did a lot of negative. Things. So if you're seeing a lot of headlines you don't like it's not time to cancel your subscription. It's time to wonder who the hell is doing all those things they're keeping reporters like me so busy anyway, I really appreciate that point. Bread Jae in Farmington Hills asked, Why don't we see anonymous sources in larger stories? Well, I would say that story in the Atlantic in which for anonymous sources accused the president of United States of not respecting the military and, in fact, skipping In our Ah Memorial Day event because he was worried would mess up his hair. That's a pretty big story, and those were anonymous sources. But J really, really appreciate the point. We're going to go to Ann Arbor where Ron says he heard something that Michael Bloomberg said that has him a little concerned. Ron, What's what's on your mind today? Good morning our afternoon Emma when they were talking about during the debates there, Mind mistaking did Michael Blum Bloomberg not say that his newspaper his news group? Was only going to investigate Trump and that any of the other Democrat people who were running for office did I miss here that remind mistaken, But I thought he was only going to investigate Trump, but not any of the other Democrats that we're running for office. Do you remember hearing anything like that Remind mistaking. Ron, I have to tell you. I don't. I don't watch a lot of television, which I know sounds weird from someone who used to be on television. Maybe that's why I don't watch it. I'm afraid I'm going to find somebody as bad as I was on TV, But I did not see that debate. I did not hear that. But if that was the case, I would be staggered because no news organization Wants to be seen as partisan. No news organization wants to be labeled as untrustworthy, and Bloomberg News is one of the largest the most successful news organizations in the country, if not the world, So I'd be surprised if he said that, But if privately, he said, I'm not going to attack fellow Democrats, I'm only gonna attack down Trump or even publicly on the debate stage if, he said I'm not going to criticize you guys. I'm only going to criticize the president. That would make sense to me. But that doesn't necessarily mean that his corporation would follow suit. So surround him afraid I can't confirm or deny that to you, But But it's an instructive interesting point. And for anyone master kissed IQ enough to go back and watch those debates. I think the answer lies in those caves. But I'm I'm looking forward to the next debates. The last debates I kind of feel like I got away with not having to watch that. But Ron, Thanks. Thanks again from your for your call. Another comment from somebody in an IRA Michael says ve Inman wasn't proven truthful. I don't think that's accurate, Michael. But if you have some evidence that VVe Inman was lying all the people who testified supported Veneman. But if you have some evidence, please give us a call back and let us know what that is. Paul and brain You've got a point about anonymous sources outside of the media world. I'm kind of fascinated to hear what's on your mind with that. Thanks for giving us a call. You bet law enforcement uses, Uh Anonymous sources all the time. It's what we call informants and in terms of the criminal in chief, he was all happy, classy that El Chapo was finally busted, and I guarantee a El Chapo was sunk by anonymous sources. We have the FBI witness protection list and you'll never know. Who those people were, and you could be busted a lot of doing a lot of hard time. For based on information provided by anonymous source. But you see, the sources aren't really anonymous because the reporters know the identity of these people. And so do law enforcement. And those people have been vetted by those but those reporters and by the law enforcement, so it's not like the anonymous source just phoned it in. Oh, and that's what we're running with me. Yeah, And even with law enforcement, they're often called confidential informants. They have to record somewhere you when you have what they call a CIA, You can't just say well, shaky. Jake on the corner told me he knew who who robbed the bank. If you're truly going to be in law enforcement confidential informant that has to be documented somewhere and you have to have some track record. That what you say is truthful because people snitch on folks all the time, not because they care about justice, but because they want to get somebody in trouble. But that's that's an excellent point in the FBI when you look.

"This is Red Eye Radio all across America, eight six six ninety redeye he is Eric Harley and I'm Gary McNamara. Thanks so much for being here. This morning. This breeding this story Erica. Breitbart. Arnold Schwarzenegger apologizes for using the phrase girlie men. Schwarzenegger used to joke that only girlie men opposed energetic capitalism and traditional American values. But now, the former bodybuilder Hollywood star in California governor is apologizing for popularizing the phrase. I don't know why everyone has to make a big deal of everything I say. If you'll either man, it's. And you can get guilty, man. If you want to be in in a new interview with men's health magazine Schwarzenegger is apologetic over his girly, man. Taunt at the time. I felt like it was the right thing to do. It was the lightning. It was this story. It was in my it was in my gut. I improvised, I call them girlie men because they weren't willing to take risks the actor told the magazine. They were afraid of everything he explained general wanna do little things. So there's no risk involved. But today there are regrets Schwarzenegger now says his rhetoric was counterproductive. It was short sighted in the long term. It's better not to say that because you want to work with them. If you have a little sense of history. You know, the best things were accomplished when both parties work together and start come compromising like Ronald Reagan did with tip O'Neill, by the way. That's completely and totally bogus that the way to a successful country is compromising. Why do you think we have the debt we have today? Compromise compromise or giving up altogether. It's somewhere in that area. But but compromise is only good if what results from it is good compromise is not good. If what results from it is not good, right? Right. Well, what they were. They need more. Michael blum? Bloomberg's is what they need. They need people like Arnold to finally admit, they're Democrats. Yes. So the there you are he's haulage ising. And know we needed we needed that. I could not have gotten today. Well, here we go stock market. Now. I I haven't checked the futures yet or the overnight markets yet overseas. But over thirteen hundred points down in two days. Now, I took all my money out of the market and bought an EMA farm. It's gonna be great. As we talked about yesterday. Yeah. I mean, the fed doing it as part of it the fed wanting to rate in talking about raising interest rates and raising interest rates is they have is is part of it the debt that we have. And the increase in in financing our debt is another part of it. Yeah. The trade wars that we are currently involved in our another part of it. And I believe a bigger part than even the possibility what the fed can do because there is no certainty in what the Fed's going to do as as as of yet. There is certainly in a couple of things the debt. Or just certainty there, then we're going to need more people to finance that debt. And. The as we have stated when you look at what interest rates have been over the last ten years as compared to the history of we just get back to the average interest rate over the last eighty years in this country. The interest alone. We'll make it. So we will have to cut back significantly on what the government is able to to do. The other thing is we've said. With the trade war and tariffs. That's a tax increase. Tax increases are not good. Right. Raising the cost of goods and services, irrespective of the slogan to do as irrespective of these slogan that is used to justify to do it economics doesn't care about a slogan. No. And it you look at the dynamics of of that situation where you have producers here in the US. That. Have their cost their their raw materials costs going up. PG for example. But then of course, the sales that are lost in the exports. From the retaliatory tariffs from the other side. And and then the dynamics of the pricing. So you want the the product from wherever it is outside the US, and you pay you're gonna pay because of the tariff, right? And then the producer the domestic producer of a similar product. Because part of it is protectionism. Then they're going to raise their prices because you know, they're being hurt. So they're justified in raising their prime because they can and because they can and all they have to be as a penny cheaper than the foreign product. To be competitive. Tell me tell me why that's a positive. We have stated that all along. And I do think that again, the uncertainty because still today congress completely silent on the trade deal, formerly known as NAFTA. Steel tariffs aluminum tariffs, which add to the base cost of how many thousands tens of thousands of products out there, which as we have seen in an I don't know. I haven't seen an update on it. We know that in the first half of the year steel was up forty percent. We know that the trade agreement formerly known as NAFTA does not cover steel and aluminum, and until there is a deal, the tariffs from what I know unless they have made exceptions to the rule in in some of those cases still remain with Canada and Mexico. So, you know, we stated that when we looked at the, you know, when when we looked at the trade deal, formerly known as NAFTA for the most part there really isn't much of a difference. We, you know, the sauce Bush on social media Trump promised to rewrite NAFTA he did a little bit. But he didn't do anything that he planned that. He said he was going to do which was I'm going to reduce one hundred fifty billion dollar trade deficit. Right. That's this this this isn't going to do it. There were little winds here or there the problem with the the new trade deal as we said that will be a long term problem is. And the president views it as a victory is raising the cost to buy a car in Mexico, the United States and Canada making it more expensive to produce the car therefore making it more expensive to buy a car and making it less likely that the present one of the president's number one goal, which is to be able to produce products ear and sell them. Overseas has just been flushed down the toilet because it's going to be more expensive to manufacture vehicles here, which is exactly the opposite. If you wish to sell them overseas, right? It's the one thing there while it's there couple of things. But it's really the one major thing where I have no idea where the president stands on it, as we know he has changed his mind on he'll change his mind on on trade in a week. He'll go from as he did one for me and a complete protectionist to sound like a total free. Trader I've no idea where he really stands. I do know though that in this in the the trade deal, formerly known as NAFTA that he viewed what he did to raise the price of buying a car and producing a car in North America. He put that at his as his number one victory, which we have said, that's what drives us crazy. That's why we're tariff babies. The original the original Tara babies as the president said now, you know, something we, you know, we laughed at it. I wonder how many farmers were laughing at that comment, though, what because you know, he talks about protecting the farmers and the move on ethanol which was not a mandate and likely will have little if any impact because the the the the fuel producers don't don't want it. They don't want the higher blend. The it. It may sound like a good deal to be able to sell e fifteen in the summer. First of all here comes the lawsuit. Here comes a lawsuit. Here comes the lawsuit. But it will. But even because at the refinery level, you don't have to do the special summer blend. But when there's no market for it. Then there would be a glut of the product and for the consumer that temporarily might might be a good thing. But the point is we're not going to get the fifteen without a mandate. And he knows politically outside of the corn belt. You can't get that done too. So, but appeasing farmers and and using that politically on on the on the tariffs. And then they came back and said, well, we're going to give you billions of dollars to help you which you just admitted it's hurting them to that extent. They came back and said that's tiny number compared to what we're what we're losing. And the fact that we're losing the ability to be in that supply chain. And once we lose that. And we're not dependable in that world supply chain they're going to go somewhere else. So it's not just while the tariffs hurt us until they're lifted. It's the fact that we may never get back in those markets again because these countries don't know when you'll use national emergency or trade deal, you know, or or the fact of of we need to get a, you know, a new trade deal or whatever to to. To deter fuss. You're not dependable anymore. You're not a consistent supply chain. Exactly. And that is the problem that the you have. But you know, we noticed that it was obvious. The president used the greatest victory. And that's the weird thing on trade to begin with countries. Always talk about their trade victories. And their trade victories are always when their citizens have to pay more money for goods and services. Right. We don't know how that's a victory, right? We can't figure that one out. Here's one thing to media asked that question. Yeah. I mean because when you look at it, and you know, you talk about the supply chain candidates saying or Mexico saying they're going to go to Canada and work out a deal for pork. Or as we call it Canadian bacon and the when they set up that supply chain if they're happy without agreement. Why did they go back to the US for? What would they with any of those products from a domestic producer? If you believe that the government is going to step in and disrupt that process. Then you're going to make another term deal. Elsewhere with someone else. We said this during the you know, the during the permit him after the. When when the Gulf spill happened, the BP thing that that whole thing where you had companies producers from the US saying, well, we can you know, go somewhere else if we're gonna do off-shore drilling. And you're not going to give us our permit back. You know, we can go somewhere else. You don't just make that decision. Short term. Right. And so you're you're going to have to make long-term plans because you can't deal with you know, the the shift in policy. You know on at the snap of a finger. And and frankly, the ethanol thing is become, you know, for the ethanol farmers, that's one thing. But you look at the entire farming community. And I'm talking the political support. If they're hurt going into. And this is what we haven't been able to gauge. You go to Iowa. I mean for those people that the New York Times listening when you go to Iowa let me describe before Iowa is is this state in the middle of the country. But when you go there, it is all connected to farming just like, Texas as oil, directly or indirectly. I mean that is the driver there when you go to the to the farm belt. That's everything. What's the impact right now of tariffs politically votes for Republicans and in twenty twenty four at the mid term this year and in twenty twenty for the president and his reelection because keep in mind. They may support Republicans who aren't on board for tariffs this time in two thousand eighteen midterms. Are they going to support the president who owns it completely? If it's still ongoing in two thousand twenty not surprised by what happened last couple of days. You know, you and I've talked about it. And we said look the big tariffs were hit on September twenty eighth. So I'm not surprised at when you look at steel and aluminum and how they have skyrocketed since the beginning of the year. Right. And we said look eventually is going to be a point where the market's gonna say, look, you're raising prices to too much, and when the terrorist went into effect on September twenty eighth when the president is trying to get a ran, you know, sanctions on Iran, which means.

It's better not to say that because you want to work with them. If you have a little sense of history. You know, the best things are accomplished when both parties work together and start come compromising like Ronald Reagan did with tip O'Neill, by the way, that's completely and totally bogus that the way to a successful country. Compromising why do you think we have the debt we have today? Compromise compromise or giving up altogether. It's it's somewhere in that area. Burmese compromise is only good if what results from it is good. Yeah. Compromise is not good. If what results from it is not good, right? Right. Well, what would they need more? Michael blum? Bloomberg's is what they need. They need people like Arnold to finally admit their Democrats. Yeah. So the there you are. College is doing. And you know, we needed we needed that. I couldn't have gotten through the day. Well, here we go stock market. Now, I checked the futures yet or the overnight market shed overseas. But over thirteen hundred points down in two days. Now, I took all my money out of the market and bought him to move arm is going to be great. As we talked about yesterday. Yeah. I mean, the fed doing it as part of it the fed wanting to rate in talking about raising interest rates and raising interest rates is they have is is part of it the debt that we have. And the increase in in financing our debt is another part of it. Yeah. The trade wars we are currently involved in our another part of it. And I believe a bigger part than even the possibility. The fed can do because there is no certainty, and what the Fed's going to do as as as of yet. There is certainly in a couple of things the debt. Certainly there then we're going to need more people to finance that debt. And. The as we have stated when you look at what interest rates have been over the last ten years as compared to the history of we just get back to the average interest rate over the last eighty years in this country. The interest alone will make it. So we will have to cut back significantly on what the government is is able to to do the other thing is as we've said. With the trade war and tariffs. That's a tax increase. Tax increases are not good. Raising the cost of goods and services, irrespective of the slogan to do as irrespective of the slogan that is used to justify to do it economics doesn't care about a slogan. No. If you look at the dynamics of of that situation where you have producers here in the US. That have their cost their their raw materials costs going up. PPG for example. But then of course, the sales that are lost in the exports. From the retaliatory tariffs from the other side. And and then the dynamics of the pricing. So you want the product from wherever it is outside the US, and you pay you're gonna pay because of the tariff, right? And then the producer the domestic producer of a similar product. Because part of it is protectionism. Then they're going to raise their prices because you know, they're being hurt. So they're justified in raising their prime because they can and because they can and all they have to be as a penny cheaper than the foreign product. To be competitive. Tell me tell me why that's a positive. We have stated that all along. And I do think that again, the uncertainty because still today congress completely silent on the trade deal, formerly known as NAFTA. Steel tariffs, aluminum tariffs, which adds to the base cost of how many thousands tens of thousands of products out there, which as we have seen in an I don't know. I haven't seen an update on it. We know that in the first half of the year steel was up forty percent. We know that the trade agreement formerly known as NAFTA does not cover steel and aluminum, and until there is a deal, the tariffs from what I know unless they have made exceptions to the rule in in some of those cases still remain with Canada and Mexico. So, you know, we stated it when we looked at the, you know, when when we looked at the the trade deal, formerly known as NAFTA for the most part there really isn't much of a difference. We, you know, the I saw especially on social media Trump promised to rewrite NAFTA. He did a little bit. But he didn't do anything that he planned that. He said he was going to do which was I'm going to reduce one hundred and fifty billion dollar trade deficit. Right now. That's this this this isn't going to do it. There were little winds here or there the problem with the the new trade deal as we said that will be a long term problem is. And the president views it as a victory is raising the cost to buy a car in Mexico, the United States and Canada making it more expensive to produce the car therefore making it more expensive to buy a car and making it less likely that the president one of the president's number one goal, which is to be able to produce products here and sell them. Overseas has just been flushed down the toilet because it's going to be more expensive to manufacture vehicles here, which is exactly the opposite. If you wish to sell them overseas, right? It's the one thing there. Well, it's there couple of things. But it's really the one major thing where I have no idea where the president stands on it as we know. He's changed his mind on he'll change his mind on on trade in a week. They'll go from as he did one for me and a complete protectionist to sign like a total free. Trader I have no idea where he really stands. I do know though that in this in the trade deal, formerly known as NAFTA that he viewed what he did to raise the price of buying a car and producing a car in North America. He put that as as his number one victory, which we have said, that's what drives us crazy. That's why we're tariff babies. The original the original terror baby says, the president said now, you know, something we, you know, we laughed at it. I wonder how many farmers were laughing at that comment though. Because the you know, he talks about protecting the farmers and the move on ethanol which was not a mandate and likely will have little if any impact because the the the the fuel producers don't don't want it. They don't want the higher blend. The it may sound like a good deal to be able to sell e fifteen in the summer. First of all here comes the lawsuit. Here comes the lawsuit. Here comes the lawsuit. But it will, but even because at the refinery level you don't have to do the special summer blend. But when there's no market for then there would be a glut of the product and for the consumer that temporarily might might be a good thing. But the point is we're not going to get the fifteen without a mandate. And he knows politically outside of the corn belt. You can't get that. So, but appeasing farmers and and using that politically on on the on the tariffs. And then they came back and said, well, we're going to give you billions of dollars to help you which you just admitted it's hurting them to that extent. They came back and said that's a tiny number compared to what we're we're losing. And the fact that we're losing the ability to be in that supply chain. And once we lose that. And we're not dependable in that world supply chain they're going to go somewhere else. So it's not just well the tariffs hurt us until they're lifted. It's the fact that we may never get back in those markets again because these countries don't know when you'll use national emergency or trade deal, you know, or or the the the fact of of we need to get a, you know, a new trade deal or whatever to to. Terrifies you're not anymore. You're not a consistent supply chain. Exactly. And that is the problem that the you have. But you know, we noticed that it was obvious. The president used the greatest victory. And that's the weird thing on trade to begin with countries. Always talk about their trade victories. And their trade victories are always when their citizens have to pay more money for goods and services. Right. We don't know how that's a victory, right? We can't figure that one out. Here's one thing to media ask that question. Yeah. I mean when you look at it, and you know, you you talk about the supply chain candidates saying or Mexico saying they're going to go to Canada and work out a deal, you know, for pork, or as we call it Canadian bacon and the when they set up that supply chain if they're happy with that agreement. Why did they go back to US sport? What would they with any of those products from a domestic producer? If you believe that the government is going to step in and disrupt that process. Then you're going to make another long term deal. Elsewhere with someone else. We set this during the you know, the during the permits Aurium after the. When when the Gulf spill happened. The BP thing that. That whole thing where you had companies producers from the US saying, well, we can go somewhere else if we're gonna do off-shore drilling. And you're not going to give us our permit back. You know, we can go somewhere else. You don't just make that decision short-term. Right. And so you're you're going to have to make long-term plans because you can't deal with, you know, the the shift in policy, you know, on at the snap of a finger, and and frankly. The ethanol thing is become you know, for the ethanol farmers. That's one thing. But you look at the entire farming community. And I'm talking the political support if they're hurt going into. And this is what we haven't been able to gauge. You go to Iowa. I mean for those people that the New York Times listening when you go to Iowa let me describe before Iowa is is this state in the middle of the country. But when you go there is all connected to farming just like, Texas as oil, directly or indirectly. I mean that is the driver there when you go to the to the farm belt. That's everything. What's the impact right now of tariffs politically votes for Republicans and in twenty twenty at the mid this year and in twenty twenty for the president and his reelection because keep in mind. They may support Republicans who aren't on board for tariffs this time in two thousand eighteen midterms. Are they going to support the president who owns it completely? If it's still ongoing in two thousand twenty not surprised by what happened last couple of days. You know, you, and I talked about it that we said look the big terrorists were hit on September twenty eighth. So I'm not surprised that when you look at steel and aluminum and how they have skyrocketed since the beginning of the year. Right. And we said look eventually he's going to be a point where the market's going to say, look, you're raising prices to too much, and when the terrorists went into effect on September twenty eighth when the president is trying to get a ran, you know, sanctions on Iran, which means.

"McNamara. Thanks so much for being here. This morning. Spreading this story. Eric. Breitbart. Arnold Schwarzenegger apologizes for using the phrase girlie men. Schwarzenegger used to joke that only girlie men opposed energetic capitalism and traditional American values. But now, the former bodybuilder Hollywood star in California governor is apologizing for popularizing the phrase. I don't know why everyone has to make a big deal of everything I say. You'll either man not it's. In man. And if you want to be in in a new interview with men's health magazine Schwarzenegger is apologetic over his girly, man. Taunt at the time.
