"And go. Hey you know you need this. And i can help you and and it was. You know the scene is always kind of a sexy little sane and after the guy said cut she goes. Are you trying to hit on me if you gotta ask. I'm not doing a very good job but she was. She was funny but man right there as an actress and and nathan was such a good guy and they both were those kind of actors that i knew when When i first started that were kind of giving and and there there are certain protocols you know like he's the star the show and when i came in my dressing room there was a present from him. Nice and you know you. Just don't see that these days you know so so that was an i love. I love the part. I mean it was such a fun. Par yeah yeah great series. And that's not enough to talk to both of them during the run in this series and i echo exactly what you said very down to earth and very cool you know. They both have done Dc animated movies. I would love to see you do on a ducks i have done. You know the animated stuff from years ago though the tv stuff but you know all all of that is. It's such a different world these days. I mean there's the so much out there it's really you kind of get lost in the shuffle. A little bit but But like i said. I don't think though the war Spinoff is dead yet. I think that at some point maybe sometime in the future. But in the meantime i started. I wrote my western hope. This is what i'm cool. Yeah because i'm a big western guy. I'm oh yeah. I know westerns. That i know directors and the actors in the stories. I mean everything you know. So and i really had this. This really good idea. And i started to write it in. My manager was very encouraging. And so that's what we're doing right now. Excellent it's it's warf with spurs is nothing. He's nothing like worth. Yeah of course lead on media. So so i'm really. You know concentrating on that. And and i would like to do that. And you know to be honest. All the people that i've met over the last twenty years or so are all in the same position where there's some people that are producers. Some people have ends to producers. They're direct talker fay's and a lot of different people that i think i can bring together for this show and people have already shown interest. Said they look. You know i'd like to to help you and so we'll see what happens. But but i that's that's i my main thing that i want to on act i wanna start it and i wrote it. I want to direct. Oh excellent i mean. Paramount plus does need content. Yes they do. I mean that's the thing you start a channel. You're going to need a lot of content. That's just not and the funny thing is that i would think that they would. They would leap at a at a work series. Or you know a movie so so we'll see but you know the funny thing about all the stuff you gotta have an in. You gotta have somebody you can call her at paramount and go. Hey how you doing joe.

I'm i'm prejudiced so I always hope for the best but you know they have their own ideas and that's the way it should be. We got lucky last Last holidays when we actually got to see him do his christmas carol on small theater here in new york pre covid. And what a treat that was. He's made a. I saw him do well. We we also do that and and also we saw. I saw him do That scottish play it was it was a fabulous evening. Agree you know. Recently there was movie unbelievable and reunited a lot of track alumni. What was that experience like for you to see. You saw people that you necessarily didn't work with some of the other shows. There was all the people from star trek. I worked with before pretty much. I mean or i or new you know so it was just it was able and it's a very you know took them a long time to to get to to where when we were shooting and lot of changes and and i you know it's been so long i just kinda go and i gotta say i was going to Dwells caney we were sitting there talking. It goes eight michael. Do you know what this is about like. i think. I think it's kind of transmuted a couple of times over the over the over the years you know because when i read it it was it was a particular story and then towards when i didn't you know what i did the the The part it totally changed. Take a break. But back in the millisecond undergo attitude. Well maybe a little longer back on track capsule with more conversations from every trick generation gotta credit you replace the president of the united states on heroes. I think that was pre-obama too. Which is pretty cool. Yes it was. I got the role. Because we i was i was reading the producers and it was during the george bush times and so it was and they said yeah pretty rough about what i said. Hey don't get me started. I think they like that is it. Oh yeah let's hire now is a great show and i actually. I wanted to see more of it but we just got a little bit of a glimpse but that's the way it is sometimes by my favorite thing after star trek that i did i did. I did a a bunch of things that were really nice but my favorite. I did castle for like success. Oh yeah yeah. And that was just a joy that was a real jewelry. Stomach ache was amazing to work with nathan. Was i mean they were just great to work with and really professional really good and a good time to. They weren't a like.

"I think it was really cool. Is that you went into how you developed warf that you didn't use contractions his fighting style you went with dennis maddalone the senate coordinator and figured out a way he would fight. That would be very different and it was cool that you cook that much time in and really and i think that's why the character resonate so much because there's a lot of effort put into it once you realize that you're going to be a lot of time with this character. You have a lot. Invested in and gene roddenbury to something that i think was very smart with a For producers and i think a lot of producers from that generation. Kind of like that. I asked him like the second second episode of the first season. I said what he want scared to. What do you want me to do. And he said basically making sure that. Was you know like christmas to the two actors. You have an opportunity to actually create something and when you do that you have a lot invested So you start thinking of things to okay. How can i improve this character. How can i make him. You know less this. And more this or whatever the case and and luckily for me unlike a lot of actors not on our show but a lot of actors have to kind of go and claude scratch for people to write stuff for them. I was lucky. The writers just took off with what. I brought to the character and ran road. Some incredibly wonderful things In next generation and deep space. So so i was very fortunate. You were very lucky that when you went to d. s. Nine ron moore was there who had a knack for writing these amazing klingon stories. Yeah you just piling on piling them on i. I'll tell you a very funny story. Is that while how funny it is. But i thought it was very cute. That whenever rod moore would be would write a clown episode. He grow a goatee. Whenever i see him he be clean-shaven. An i'd say hey route ninety allah and then when i next time i see if he has a goatee s at warf episode goes. Yeah so great. That's great. I gotta say the the best episode there was some great episodes but i thought the best episodes for war were of the two that he wrote on deep space which is once more into the breach and soldiers of the empire. Yeah fantastic fantastic. Yeah yeah there's so many You know to to pick and And i it's just it and you know i've heard about your your pitch for a series and it totally dovetails what. I've always thought that warf is the ultimate klingon being raised by humans. He has the best qualities of that and yet still follows klingon traditions and can really be in a great leadership position to guide the empire back to back to honor back to you know the details and the rituals that they did in the past and not so much on conquering as they were you know during especially during kirkstall the main the main scene of louis of the of the spinoff that i wrote is basically survival.

The mold of how we see our original see billionaires. Although bruce wayne's an exception of course so what what was it that attracted you to play. This guy actually Just just what you said. A guy has done some pretty horrible rotten things and and he's trying to atone for which is a positive trait. But i think that the the issue for him and this is kind of something i added to the character is that you know. He realizes that no matter how much he tries to tone. It'll never be completely all right and that's just because you know the decision decisions you make in your life that he made our decisions. That can't go away you know. You can't like unring.

"At uc michael go from stop knows kid to the godfa yet and us and spill affects. There's no you know. Three sixty movements is just pushing. You think that's the thing i love about. And that's what i do. I mean special effects to me or like you know something you add just to put icing on the cake. But you know the the acting and the camera is is all import. Oh absolutely i. If you haven't seen it. I do urge you to see the re-cut of godfather three much better really makes more sense and the original version and it is really it really. It belongs with the other two now. I think it really did a good job. That is that is some talk. It is but i know seriously. I thought they really. It's like the original version. It just seems like forever to get going this time. They just jump right in and and sure enough. He's being the godfather and he's trying to you know he's trying to go to legitimate and that's his aim at the beginning of the movie but yet people are coming after him because they need something. They need his money. They re cut was so much better than the original cut and they added some scenes that were cut out. There's a nice little scene between him. And andy garcia and a helicopter. That was not used in original where he's giving him advice and it was like. How can you leave this out. But but yet cocoa got to do the cut he wanted and it the movie benefited from it. No doubt definitely check it out if you can. It's been an absolute pleasure talking to you. I am so behind. Both the wharf idea. And also the western. I would love to see those come to light. I appreciate it man thank you. It's been an absolute pleasure. I have fond memories of that junket back in ninety six. All view were there was a moment in the hallway. Were i think you were coming in. And patrick was moving and i heard you guys like arguing like a fake argument in the hallway spun wa remember that that was great like you walk in with a big smile on your face. I remembered i thank you again and i look forward to for everybody to see agent revelation. It's to see you as a billionaire. I like that idea to thank you..

"Like that that he cares little personal gun and he carries a henry rifle. Yeah and that's that's his. That's his kind of goto weapon spending love the way. Danny glover will henry and Silverado now is is so cool. I'm not a big gun person. But somehow in westerns really kind of fits so hard the mythology of it you and the thing is that I wanted to have a a gun. But i wanted to be special. Dislike member wanted dead or alive. Oh sure yeah weird winchester thing. I wanted something that was distinctive and you had have something like and this guy is well-known enough to where the cult company would just go. Okay what he want well. I want a big caliber. Gun is what it is now. And he's you know like i said it's a very good story. I'm really happy with it. So we'll see what happens. Yeah hey good luck with. That sounds awesome. I would love to see you do something like that. So he's quick on the draw. No he's not he's not oh and the reason is is that I mean how many times have you heard that here. In fact it's about being deliberate. That's right you know it's about you know being able to hit what you shoot at the first time and if you're fast you may not hit. I just love your passion for the project. i think it's gonna be. I'm really hoping sometimes gets made because passion is so important anything anybody does. Oh yeah oh yeah. Definitely definitely well and i got like i said two things. I think that you know the the war. Spin-off is not dead. And this thing is is something that i that is different and i think it's I think that people would be like. Wow you know a plus you know with the whole stuff that i've done with star trek following. Which would help cheer and so so. I hope this you know like i said it. It's one of those things where we're still plugging away as they say star. Trek had a a western episode. The it's of course. And you know. And i told by so okay. I want the hat like john wayne. Like when he was in the the the The army you know. Oh yeah yeah her. Badchi and and She wore yellow ribbon and the that kind of shirt that has the buttons coming. You know like in a like a almost like chevron and and i wanted a gun and they couldn't do it like steve mcqueen had in them seven. Oh my god it was a very. He had a very odd holster ups. And and i thought that was coolest thing but they couldn't do it in time..

I mean the the series really kinda cries out for him a little bit. You know. Maybe this i i would think so. That is my feeling. But like i said you know the producers have their own ideas about how they want to Portray or you know. Tell these stories and you know. War is Not figured in though so. But that's okay. I mean the way i look at it. Is you know as you know. I've done more episodes and more hours than anybody. You know on the original movie and eleven years on a series and and you know five of for four of our movies and so i. I've done a lot.

"Not asking the head to do too much. If it's one goal was basically not achieved in the last cycle, 2% inflation Is it really a good idea to be lobbing on additional mandates? Defending not only fools for and I think the answer to that is no, We need to be very careful, right if we're asking, you know, if if we as a society are saying, right, we have a pressing need to address climate change or disparities between groups. That's going to be a policy that physical, you know that that elected officials with a fiscal policy apparatus. They're goingto have todo address monetary policy. I think you know we're trying to do too much had a mandate after mandate after mandate all the little growth and inflation even let me cut in and darn it just goes on like that. Michael and I were just fired up. Forthis is like Bloomberg on the economy reduction. As well. Paul, sweetie and time. Michael Darda. We're thrilled. Michael Dorn is with us with the Dow Up 114 points. Okay, I have one more G question. And then Sweeney is going to get control of the program. My dart. The Dallas Fed had that symposium for John B. Taylor of Stanford. I'm going to get eight years ago. And it was the rules. Baia Lipsky spoke Everybody Wade in here on rules. The drone. Powell State a new form of rule today. He did, But like I said in the opening, you know his phraseology was a flexible form of average inflation targeting so an inflexible approach would be to shift to a no explicit new miracle target or something like a price level. Target target. Where the Fed was you explicitly committed to make up. Do you know a precise magnitude of undershoot or to reverse and overshoot? And that's not what happened today with the power of speech. All right, Mike, So from a practical perspective, What do you expect to change for the Fed as over the next several quarters, if anything, in terms of how they're viewing the rate structure and the economy Great question, So I think one change is going to be less confidence in these Phillips curve relationships right? We discussed the Fed tightening policy when the labor market got quite tight in the last Few years of the pre previous expansion, and they did that Because these Phillips curve models were more or less saying OK, labor markets tightening, and so there's less capacity out there less you know, less room to run, and so that'll put upward pressure on inflation. It was not anticipated that we would get to 50 year low is in the unemployment rate, with inflation still below the feds target. When I read the policy speech, that's what comes through loud and clear that there is going to be less focus on you know on the tight labor market necessary, necessarily generating, you know, ah lot of pressure, inflation or even meaningful pressure on inflation. Michael another variable chairman, Paul answering questions now. Is they do with the defendant? That's fine. One of the headline questions goes to the heart of the matter is a Walter Heller moment. Any inflation overshoot will be moderate comma, not permanent. Says Who? Michael Gardner? Yeah, that's true. I mean, listen, you know, we could end up fighting the last war here in by trying to make up for lost ground on inflation. It could be that there's an overheating and a rise in inflation down the road, not a near term risk, but down the road. You know, that's more than Fed officials are bargaining for or anticipating. And so that you know that is a risk. It's not a near term risk, but it's a good point that you So, Michael, What do you think is the most? I mean, we've been talking about 2% inflation, but it's been a very long time before since this economy had to deal with that type of inflation level. What do you think would get us to that type of level over some appreciable period of time. And fourth on before, which would be total aggregate demand. So nominal GDP. This is a favorite metric of Tom keen total spending in the economy. It was very moderate in the last cycle, averaging just 4% per annum. So if really growth potentials around to, you're not going to get, you know inflation of much above two and so really, what the Fed would need to do here would be to set a path for aggregate demand. Nominal GDP, Tio Teo to move up in a way to running away relative to growth potential That would get inflation to 2%. Now we're you know, we're a depressed economy because we just got hit with his shock, so aggregate demand is gonna have to run much faster than the growth rate of potential. For a full recovery to take shape. But once that happens, nominal growth will have to be adequate enough to generate at least 2% in inflation. And with growth potential around two, maybe a little below two. That'll be 4% nominal. Let's go to the reality. Michael Darda one final question. You've been wonderful. How urgent is that? The chairman Powell get a stimulus package. From the White House from the Senate from the house. You know, it's a fascinating question, Tom. I mean, we've been telling clients. Basically you've got three variables to account for here on unanticipated fiscal shock and unanticipated monetary shock, and then the evolution of the pandemic itself out of the three. You know, the news on the pandemic has been getting better over the last few weeks. Obviously, the feds do is, you know, doing what they're doing to help?.

"Bite is a new series here on Scifi talk and the sci-fi Talk Archive podcast and so parenting in apocalypse. It's it's not the same way that we would do. It's either full interviews or a comment or question from past interviews time wise. It's about one to four minutes long on an average. Probably when you when you live long enough all kinds of strange things happen. You're very right in saying that. The Greek heroes. Where the original superheroes in part because of the nature of genes vision but also because of its message of diversity and inclusion from the Star Trek first contact ground tables. Michael Dorn talked about how he developed the Klingon. Probably the ultimate Klingon. I think in warf the one of the things that I that I actually did when I got the job was that I vowed to to change the perception Klingons And although we didn't have major discussions about it. Gene Gene allowed me to create The wharf character anyway. I wanted to and so what I did was took We had to do a different voice number one because the voice was to human-like originally although deepest and so I just took it and made it English made him a really eloquent. You know instead of saying we. Can't you know say we cannot you know and and make it very stilted in very very eloquent so And also the same with the fighting sequences originally it was like Ross screaming and the l. a. m. and hitting two hands and you know just really kind of wild up and I and I went to one of the special effects supervisors on our show who was a martial arts expert and I said look you know I wanna change all around. Let's do something that is that as violent but Owns like martial arts? Like in every move is is is choreographed and it is it is every if you make a move your getting prepared for the next move and so it looks real In like like a dance you know accept it can rip your throat out. You know or something. And so. That's that's that was my whole point as to as to Change the KLINGONS. So they weren't just you know these wild guys. I made him a little different Star Trek.

"It's been awhile since you've seen this episode. Maybe you're not watching along with us. This is the one where warf seeks to defend his family's honor by going to the Klingons who say that his father did bad things and worth goes matt before we get into the details of this episode. I'm curious give us an overall your overall thoughts kind of going into the sins of the father is. It took a couple of turns. I wasn't sure where it was going like. They had a nice introduction to it because they actually made sense from what we've watched before They were completing this exchange program. I remember that okay. Okay but which by the way when we sat down to do these particular order like episodes. Yeah I did not think this one because I didn't play that at all like it. Just it just happened that way so yes well happy coincidence yes in any case. I I it kind of got real in a little bit dark thereafter. It wasn't it wasn't quite the same type of episode. Has the other half of the exchange program so I not what I expected. I guess is the best best way to explain it. All right all right I can say definitely I mean and when I was writing out the recap I I remember sending their thinking like man. This starts Brighton Jerry. And we're just we're just doing the exchange program and IT TURNS OUT WITH WARF- in Dark Chamber and Card in a back alley on Cronos the home world of Cleland's and Yikes so what a what a turn. What an adventure. So well. Before we get into that and we'll we'll go through all the details. Let's stop for a second and do our kind of character actor spotlights to people like to highlight today. The first one is one of our guest actors. Tony Todd who is playing commander? Kern or can't warf's brother. Tony Dot is a very accomplished actor. His page Is about as long as he is. And he's six foot five like it's it's just huge. He has been on almost everything and in many things multiple times. And it's no different than those guys he just is We're GONNA see him several more times over the course of of Star Trek which is why I bring them up because this is one of those places where we go. Hey remember that guy. Yeah he also plays this guy this guy and this guy. We're going to see him as for the trekkies out there Matt. You won't know what I'm talking about here but I for those of you guys out there tracking long. He's going to be is going to come back as a horizon and we're gonNA see him in the great deep space nine episode the visitor and I'm not gonNA say which role he's going to be in there but For those of you guys out there who know what I'm talking about you understand why I'm pointing that particular show episode out and we will certainly be doing it on this show when we get there. He's also been involved in the fan film. The Star Trek the formerly Star Trek. And now not star. Trek anymore. Fan Film accent are and and he's just done several things so Tony Todd playing Commander current for our main Casto. Matt I bet you can't guess who it is. I WANNA point out today Would it be worth it would be wharf yes? Let's talk about war for otherwise known as Michael Dorn Now Michael Dorn did not study to be an actor unlike many of his truck counterparts he was not some Great Shakespearean actor prior to coming to track. That's just an. He studied television and radio. Production as a major in college. Not even acting. He was going to be behind the camera behind the microphone. You know you think about it certainly has a voice for radio you know I it. Just that's that's Michael Dorn. He got his first uncreditworthy role in the movie. Rocky as Apollo creeds bodyguard. Okay so it's just that he had a few other smaller roles throughout the seventies before getting hooked up with an acting coach. Eventually that led him in you know the mid eighties mid to late eighties to be cast as warf and then he was cast as warf again and then he was cast as worth again and he was cast as worth again and that's Brin pretty much his career he has done You know he has done a couple of other things since. Trek has ended by. It's been him as warf or him. As Michael Dorn who played were on star trek or something like that. His career has gone the way of many trek alumni I just can't get out of that track shadow. There's a difference though Matt for Michael Dorn He loves it. He is not opposed. He is not running away from it the way like force Kelley did or they'll shattner or you know any embraced it like I would think that's the way I would be sure if I ever got. Attached to a franchise like Thad somehow made my name with a franchise like that. It's like why not be like if people are going to to eat up the content That you create or you're in because of your connection to this franchise like your set And you're set for life you don't have to do anything else. And and you know I found this quote by Michael. Dorney says if what happened to the first cast is called being typecast than I want to be. Typecast of course jobs after track but look at them. They're making their sixth movie namely someone else in television. Who has made six movies so like I said he's often appeared as himself as as either himself or as warf he's been in it and that's true whether or not it's it's live action. Television shows mostly actually future trek episodes or animation. He's been in the family guy and a couple of other things or even in video games you know any time they come up with Star Trek video game there. He is as worth. Can we borrow your voice again? Exactly and by the way that sixth movie that they were they were filming. He's referencing the undiscovered country. Which you and I watched. And if you remember he actually got a role playing the grandfather of his character and that six movies so you know. I think he's okay with it. You Know Yeah Yeah Now with that Michael. Dorn has a big aviation geek He's a fairly accomplished pilot which I didn't know before. Kind of looking at this for for today's episode But it explains a lot of the comments that I hear him making a lot of his interviews. Okay so it it does get roughly. I just didn't know that this was a piece of it. He's actually owned several jet aircraft. One of them was a lucky star shooter or something to which he calls that his starship. You know so okay. Whatever and in He's flown with the Blue Angels. He's flown with the thunderbirds. So that's that's Kinda his. I guess his thing. I mentioned that sense Trek has ended. He's been seen in lots of different. You know he's. He's had several roles on TV live. Tv like a guest actor here and there voiceover with lots and lots of lots of different animated series. One I will point out like I have before lie. So many of his fellow T. and G. Caskey was one of the voices in Gargoyles animated series But I will always remember him outside of track as Sandman from the Santa Claus. Movies Yeah that's a deep cut. Think about it remember. I saw him in the second one where they have like. The Council of Fairytale creatures or whatever council of mythical creatures? And there's a tooth fairy and I'm Joshua's equals this year. Yeah because I recall that I've seen that and Michael Michael Jordan played Sandman off to back the hunt the very very sleepy very sleepy Sandman now with that just because his turn on trek is ended right. I gotTa tell you it does not mean that. He's done with the character because he does see instance two thousand twelve. He has been promoting the idea and he has continued to lobby for and pushed the idea of a star Trek captain war series. He he's been pushing. Hold your breath for that one to come to fruition. Though you never know the way they're going it's you know they're they're going to need more ideas soon. Go there you go. They're pumping them out right now. Is We're recording this so our matt. Well this is the part of the show where I'm going to turn the rest of it over to you because that's our that's our main character. Spotlight I walk through the scenes but I mean like I say this is really all about you and how you experienced the episode as we went along so please give us all your commentary. Stopped me wherever you like. Take us through this episode. Wherever you saw what stood out to you any questions. Maybe you had along the way sins of the father here. We go prologue. Hey remember last season when commander. Reiger was the first officer on board a Klingon ship. Well now it's time to return the favor. A KLINGON is going to be the first officer of the enterprise for a little while. This should be interesting. Kern commander rank Klingon Defense Force beams aboard and he's ready to get to work no Reicher. He doesn't want to see his quarters. I what he really wants is for you to get out of the way on the bridge current strutting around laying down the law when he briefly stops next to wharf. Hey look at that. Have the same heterogenous. How neat gives acting instant Wesley? Crusher a little dressing down and then assumes his chair well rikers chair and he gives the order for their next destination execute. Wesley Snipes back. Dude we engage here. I guess said this should be interesting. Yeah so it was an interesting setup by cassette earlier just finishing the exchange program. So got something going for it right off the bat but it actually didn't more. I think didn't really play out the way I thought it was going to cause he. He made a comment early on. It's like are you willing like I've done. I've done my homework I studied. Are you willing to do everything? Strictly by the book like Kern was basically asking.

"But we begin with the latest pass around Iran so before we get to the actual latest on attention with Ron there's a really great piece by Michael Dorn who's a senior fellow at Hudson institute and he goes through what exactly a Ron is trying to do here and it's it's necessary to understand what Ron is trying to do and what the United States is trying to accomplish to determine what the strategy should be with regard to a run now listen the backdrop here is that nobody really knows in foreign policy it's not it's not a machine nobody knows in foreign policy what can happen given any circumstance foreign policy is simply too unpredictable there are however tried and true strategies when it comes to things like deterrent if you're trying to deter somebody's action they have to know that you are committed to taking a very harsh that should they violate a line rate is why president Obama violating his own redlining Syria was so devastating it's one of the reasons why a lot of a lot of America's enemies got more ambitious and more aggressive in the face of a president Obama in other words the the talk softly and carry a big stick methodology of teddy Roosevelt isn't just a nice phrase is also a very good strategy that when you carry the stick people should know that you're carrying the stick well string is not good bluffing is not good if you're gonna drop redlined actually has to be a red line and if you're not gonna drop one redline then don't draw a red line be very clear about where your line talk to the people know that if they cross them you're gonna smack them and that is sort of the predicate to this discussion we have to know what exactly the policy is and the policy has to be backed by an actual grand strategy it can't just be haphazard it can't be you're frustrated to throw missile somewhere the Clintonian policy of an embassy gets bombs in Kenya or Tanzania and we talked and missile and a drug factory in in Sudan you can't actually do that right that that that doesn't events any sort of fear on the part of your enemies or the belief in consistency foreign policy is a lot more like parenting when the and it stays involved then it is like I'd bargain between mutual friends there is no community of nations when it comes to the international community there's no community the international community is a dog eat dog space and that means that the most powerful hand with hand in America a in in international politics has to be very predictable and very solid he wants to know what they're going to do before they do it especially if they're gonna take a strong policy okay so what exactly does run one because right now Iran has been engaged in aggressive the antics for the past several months well Michael door NSA says is a really good piece over and mosaic it's called what Ron is really up to you they say he said in April twenty fifteen the joint comprehensive plan of action the J. C. P. LA as the Iran nuclear deal signed by president Obama a garbage deal was still be formalized Republicans preparing to run for president in the following year we're already denouncing it at a public forum in New York City the Washington post columnist David Ignatius astra moderate the Iranian foreign minister whether he worried that one of these Republicans if elected might overturn the deal the reef answered confidently any successor to Barack Obama would be constrained by international law I Marika's commitments formal and informal to allies and partners and I all the norms that governs relations among nations today he said I believe the United States will risk isolating itself in the world if there's an agreement and it decides to break it the result of any such action he predicted would be chaos siris comments as Doran prefigured the strategy that Iran's supreme leader Ali Khamenei is following today in his brinksmanship with with president trump playing on the fear especially prevalent among European elites in American Democrats that trump is precisely an agent of chaos Khamenei has taken a leave from the book of Chinese leader xi Jinping when twenty seventeen appeared at the World Economic Forum as the representative of enlightened globalism we should hear to multilateralism slim hold the authority and efficacy of multilateral institutions she declared we should honor promises and abide by rules the court struck by she were still resonating in the halls of the G. twenty summit in Wales Harris last December when the assembled leaders adopted a joint communique communique affirming their commitments to a rules based international order this is shorthand for slapping from presumably how many intends to leverage the fears that hot Europeans I raising the specter of war and simultaneously offering a cooperative multilateral way to exercise it namely returning America to the Iran nuclear deal his goal is to place president trump's Nancy ation of the Iran nuclear deal on the official agenda of this week's G. twenty summit which begins Saturday June twenty ninth and thirtieth in the hope that it will win a place on the short list from major sins against the rules based international order right up there with the American president's economic protectionism and is this a valid the Paris climate accord so basically what how many wants is to get the Europeans to pressure president trump into re signing the Iran nuclear deal why because the Iran nuclear deal allows run to build nuclear weapons all explain in just a second but first let's talk about medical innovation America is well known for being the center of medical innovation on planet earth there's a reason for that because free markets generate innovation well if you are looking to solve problems like heart disease Alzheimer's cancer you know problems that are killing enormous numbers Americans you need medical innovation but if government officials like secretary allergies are have their way that could all change having the government mess with people's health care could say US medical innovation back decades leaving countless Americans in rough shape while waiting for treatments that might not be discovered we shouldn't let that happen please go to stop price controls dot com tell secretary easier to fix patients not prices before countless Americans.

"Well, crystal ca PLA is a clean on warcry for battle when klingons or going into battle with one another they'll say PLA t each other and a battle. I mentioned in my previous point that in Klingon culture battle is everything to cling on and Warf is happiest when he's fighting. He's very serious guy. James mentioned the kingpin is six foot seven Warf is about six five six six. So they see almost Ida. I he's six three the actor that plays him is six four the I know he's is I'm six three the actor plays him six two. And I think they listed. I remember seeing six three. But you know, I'm just that weird. I've seen. All right. Well, I think his show heights is a little supposed to be a little taller. They get basketball players to play Klingon on actors in the background. I think Wilt Chamberlain played one one time of non next generation, but cling all right, so klingons and humans the biggest difference. I see. Between these two between kingpin and Warf is that Fisk would prefer to work through the shadows and manipulate events through his pawns like he is a great fighter. He keeps his body and skills sharp, but that's not his preferred to solution to solving a problem. And that's for the reasons that James gave which are very reasonable. You know that he is the head of this major criminal empire. He can't afford to have his DNA showing up on random thug number three. When he gets sent to the morgue. You're not going to go down for that. If you're the kingpin, you pay people to do that for you kingpin is a chess master, but Warf is more likely to flip the board over and stab you in the throat during chess game. So as a Starfleet officer, a Warf is armed with his phaser. And that is the distance weapon. And he received special permission to carry the MEK left at all times as well. That was during the DS nine era, which by the way, the back story on the Mechlin. It's it looks like half of a bat left. Michael Dorn requested that the bat left be replaced with a smaller weapon that would be easier for carrying and shooting for the long shooting and fight scene days. So that was how the MEK left came to exist behind the scenes Warf is really quick to go for a kill..
