"Yammering on about just I don't know the evacuation. And I'm not that's not important, not that it's not deer, not a tragic, but I think it's important for people to understand how these wars are filled out how they work what they were constructed on. Who drove them, how these things were possible. That's how we get to this point in Afghanistan. That's how we get to this point where Joe Biden can really be presented with no options other than pull out of Afghanistan or escalate the war again. You know what I mean? There's a lot of, you know, this is how we get to this point. But with Michael Hastings, you know, he writes that piece in Rolling Stone, the runaway general. About general Stanley McChrystal. Actually, a there was some justice involved in all that and for me personally because the man who arranged for that interview for Michael Hastings to be with general crystal for weeks at a time, basically. To do this high profile biopic for Rolling Stone was a guy named Duncan boothby. Dino Duncan boothby, because when I resigned and then about a month after I resigned, The Washington Post wrote a big story on me, and I was all over television, media and everything. And when that occurred central command on a day of Petraeus, hire strategic communications firm to discredit me. They basically telling producers I was lying, who I was about who I was. You know, just discrediting me in general, but also to giving media notice that if one time when I interviewed with Dan Rather, you know, and I saw the message, the message basically from this strategic communication failure to Durant to damn rather's producers, the message basically is, if this is the kind of guy referring to me, that you guys want to deal with, you're not the kind of people we want to deal with. And then three or four weeks later, after spending three or four hours being interviewed by Dan Rather, probably about three hours after them, bringing me up from D.C. to New York for this interview after as we're doing B roll on midtown Manhattan, Dan Rather saying to me, you know, I know you're right because I've been going to Afghanistan for three decades. You know, so I know you're right. You know, after all of that, you know, and then seeing this message that came in while we were taping, you know, you know, if this is the kind of guy you want to work with, you're not to copy. We want to work with three or four weeks later. I'm nowhere to be seen and damn rather than rather show. I think it was called Dan Rather reports at the time as on a cable network. But sure enough, Dan Rather's talking to all these generals. He's over in Afghanistan, right?.

"I'm just playing devil's advocate. Here you're a cop you're going into arrest somebody they you're you're trying to deal with. Is this person gonna pull a weapon out and blow my fucking brains out. I'm never gonna see see my kid again. And meanwhile you got this dog. You know what i mean. It's like you can only look at one thing at one time. So in your life is fucking danger. I think a lot of people including animal lovers. We're thrusted. It's i think it's very easy to not be a cop and just sit there and you know what i would have done the same way you do like you know when you trash the quarterback your team. You know what i would have done with my non athletic asks. This is what i would've done. I would've left the leftover the fucking defensive line you know and then called an option or whatever the fuck you would have done so yeah. I mean just hearing that story absolutely devastating. Because i know if the cops ever came in my house my dog would be flipping out and trying to attack them and i would be like let me. Just put her in the other room but if they whatever we're coming in there and i was considered a threat they have to take me down and then my dog would come at them and then they would fucking shoot my dog and it would suck so. I'm obviously. I wish there was some way that they wouldn't have to do that. But is much as people one hundred percent blame cops they're the real culprit that set that whole thing off our fucking assholes who turn that dogs in the maniacs and maybe even someone like myself. Who doesn't i mean. I don't know how to have my dog under control. So i just put her in the back room because i don't know because some fucking asshole fucked her up. You know that. Jesus christ. I got work to do so there you go. That is the you know. I didn't even get to that fucking you see that reporter that died. Let me get the hell. Is that story here. This writer for rolling stone which i have a subscription to one of the magazine few magazines that actually read every episode every installment michael hastings. He had a horrible death. Fucking was going down. I believe it was highland. Just south of melrose is mercedes was traveling ridiculous speeds. He hit a fucking tree and the whole thing exploded burst into flames and they had identify him by his dental records and Allegedly this guy knew. I guess he wrote some fucking article in rolling stone where he was over in afghanistan talking to some higher ups in the military and they were saying some shit that they thought was off the record and he put it all in the article. And there's people conspiracy theories trying to say that. His car was cyber attacked. Now i'm not even gonna get into that but to how fucked up is the world getting if like actually something that somebody could do. I'm not saying whether it was done by this guy or not. I have no fucking idea. He might have been hammered. I have no idea. I have no fucking clue. I don't know anything about it. But i'm just saying that the fact that somebody could hack into your computer in caused your car to speed up and there's nothing you you can't shut the car off. This is why. I don't know that i don't believe that it's just like is evil is that is. We got to eliminate this guy. Isn't there a zillion other ways to kill him without doing that. Like what if he slammed into like a fucking minivan with you know a married couple and their three four kids. You know it's got to be. Can't they just spray. Some missed on you know. Just walk up to him in a mall like hi sir just try this fragrance you just spray it on them and then the guy like you know ten minutes later. He's tried on some slacks. Just kills over. You can't do it that way but anyways is this true is can they actually do that shit and this makes me feel glad that you know half my time out here. I drive around in a classic car you know because not like any sort of a threat. But what i'm saying is if if i would think if you had the ability to do that some fucking nerds would just do it just to do it because it would be funny. Just speed you up for a second and slow you down just a freaky out. You know like you remember back in the day when this is like pre internet fun what you would do. Is you take your garage door opener right and you would drive around the neighborhood and you pointed at every garage until you found somebody that had the same one as you and back in the day they just had like. It wasn't sophisticated so not only yours open not only yours. It opened the other ones too. So you eventually find somebody that had the same garage door brand is you and you could open and close their garage so at least you could fucking neighborhood so you just find us. Dr one person nuts you just drive by and you just fuck every once in a while. We'll just open it. And i don't know why we would do it. We were assholes but using that if you could fuck and do that with cars wouldn't.

"If you want the gift, please use the coupon code at checkout PR. E. P. Coat. Fantastic I know I love that stuff I have to say so Richard Spencer is for Joe Biden he announced on twitter. Do. What Richard Spencer he's a Richard Spencer was or is a Neo Nazi Involved I believe he was one of the speakers at the unite the right rally. He's one of the main. He's one of the one of the top white nationalist speakers in the country, and he's famously on that video from a few years ago where he's giving an interview in somebody runs up and punches him in the face. Well just like in the days of Stalin, and Hitler the Communist and the Nazis have united again with Richard. Spencer going over the Joe Biden camp well, the Nazis and the Communists only had one difference nationalism internationalism and they. They worked hand in hand for a very long time. Yes. You could say that with communists they said the government should actually own corporations whereas with the fascist they said, the corporations had to cooperate government. Both. Our leaders were totalitarian dictators using their ideologies to cost. For the soldiers yes. So we'll see if Joe Biden will see if he yes, he was. He was a big player in the unite the right rally in the aftermath and we'll see if Joe Biden denounced denounce him if media ask him to denounce him. I gotTa say if you don't see that how race is being used as a weapon I mean I've got to first of all. Races being used I read a book and in the Mid Twentieth from the Mid Twentieth Century about the UN peace from the wonderful people who brought you. Korea and Vietnam you probably won't be able to find out if you try to find I'd have to find for you but he just talks about how race is the weapon and they can they're going to use raise to destroy everything that. People would defend keeps people together whatever I'm not. I'M NOT PROMOTING The opposite I'm just saying it's a weapon regardless of the merits, and of course, any argument has to have merits in order to get followers to be able to exploit. You have to have that and it does. But right now it's being used for stuff that's completely irrelevant to race including destroying the past under the guise of destroying the history of slavery which you can't. It's you you want to be reminded of it so you don't repeat it the. Nationalizing the police at least make no under federal control and he pays the Piper so far locally fund the federally. That's what the second part of that slogan really is, and then the elections see elections are going to be in play they're going to say they have to be federal I'm sure it's going to be a blue red thing that with the post office will slow walk in the soup they'll be accused of slow walking in the blue states whatever. and. An ask for the riots I have to say, I was pretty surprised or at least not surprised in a sad way when I saw picture on the front on the homepage of Fox of a dealership with all the cars burning. Now let me ask you basically could you light a car on Firoz last time he saw every single vehicle crash. I can't recall seeing one person that Michael Hastings thing not even in person. But like Michael Hastings crashed into whether he did it himself or not crashed into a tree actually went and looked at the tree while it was still charred. So, fast so hard that the car burst into flames and Mercedes said, our cars do not do that. You can't do that and they took great pains auto industry over the years. To. Keep that from happening. So I see. I only saw pictures from one dealership, but they said all over Wisconsin car dealerships were burning. The cars were burning the video I saw. There's just they. They were doing funny business to get the cars to burn and I think you might even have had to have had access to the inside of the car under the hood and many cars were burning there. No firemen there. This was all in Kenosha Wisconsin or elsewhere in Wisconsin. Maybe. But for sure in. Wisconsin. And it was all based on a cop shooting a Guy Jacob Blake I think his name was as he walks away from them unarmed went into a car and as he was getting into the car, a cop was behind him and shot him like eight times I mean whatever. But it was very blurry. It was far away. It wasn't a body camera is nothing. As a as a person from. WHO's looking? WHO's a skeptic? I look at that picture and I say I'm assuming that he went in there and got a big Ascott and turned around was gonNA shoot the cop but I don't know because we're behind the door juxtapose that with the Anthony McLean video where one of the COP who shot him his body cameras off Gimme a break at a Pasadena the. Guy was running away and they shot him in the back dead and you there's not one mention of that on national media not one and that one is the one that everybody would agree on who the robberies and the other one is vague when that would be divisive right so I, don't know if it's and the people who want to stop cop violence against black people. Are the ones who should want unambiguous murder. One but I don't know if it's simply the art of ambiguity at work or. Because Pasadena has protocols that are the national protocols that they're working on. Transparency reporting releasing the video. So they going through all this process nothing will happen to that cop zero but the processes in place, which is such a it's exactly what happened to our schools. Our kids schools is that they're so fixated on process that outcomes don't matter at all. I think that speaks to the way that the George. Floyd. Case Roll roll out in that everybody agreed that George, Floyd should not have died. Nobody looked at that video of the cop with his neck on the and was like, okay with that everybody thought that that was terrible and despite that agreement when the protesters went out, they started looting and started writing and that became the point of division, the looting and the writing because everybody agreed that they know nobody was supporting the police officer who put the knee on the neck of George Floyd. So they made the issue about whether or not you're protesting or writing. So we weren't fighting over this the actual merits of what went what happened we're fighting over the tactics used to protest it. So they shifted it because it was to everybody agreed too much division they keep feeding that because. One of the tweets somebody's forwarded to me was..

Okay? So we talked about the provocateurs yesterday. And the umbrella man the guy with the black umbrella who was hammering out the windows, and the fact that a lot of left-wingers are pretending to be right. Wingers ntfs pretending to be white. NATIONALIST WHITE NATIONALS PRETEND TO BE ANTIFA. Everybody's trying to smear everybody else to make it look like everybody is the worst possible person where possible group in the world. Let read you a quick paragraph from CIA morale menu over their training and end in the field, subversion tactics in the context of starting a riot or a mass movement is technique training for the agents. If it is to be an impression of spontaneous and widespread revolt, minor subversive activities at widely scattered points are planned and numerous. Committed simultaneously thus at a predetermined time, civilians at various places break windows. Start Fires Start, street fights and start riots, judicious and affective. Bribing of police officers can help in the successful staging of street, fights and riots without endangering the security of the agent the agent. The police can be bribed either to stay away from the scene until it has developed into a riot. Of its own momentum or to make wholesale arrests of innocent bystanders, and thus create the impression of greater participation in the riot, then actually existed so this was a a handbook for the CIA in foreign countries and the sixties. Yes. So it's kind of like my mean thing where they enhanced functional subcultures. They just go into other countries and mess up and we're supposed to believe that they don't do that here. That's right even though we've seen all of this exactly. What you said because I remember the day. They said it was like I. Don't think La. To Deal Bell L. A.. Nothing because I saw one of one. You really get killed. So I went to look and see if people were on that highway, but they were. It was just like the exits. Come down to where the stop light like every other frigging. And they were just whatever. Wasn't that big a deal and then all of a sudden. It just escalated right here. This whole manual is just fascinating. The what it describes things that could be a hilarious thing. Is that that people will defend to the death? They don't do it to us. Somebody just asked me. A question didn't gets looking at the Smith. Months, amendment, from twenty twelve when that Michael Hastings was writing on before he died Dando one. It's where they can properly. They can direct propaganda to domestic audiences. And this is propaganda. This is propaganda of the deed. Is Propaganda so depending on how they wanted to find that they're? They've given themselves a justification for it, yeah. That's why I think there must be like legal loopholes because you look at the cove stuff. They're not false. Find government documents. That's why the numbers are so screwy. You know what I'm wondering. Speaking of legal loopholes. Is if the police to somebody and we've had this conversation about San San Bernardino. You've talked about it with Apple. Can they have access to your phone I talked yesterday about the thousands upon thousands of hours of videos that are going to be uploaded to the cloud, just automatically by default, because that's the default phone setting, because everybody in this protest has a phone. What if that phone captures crime on camera, which probably most of them did? You. Can the police Gimme? One of them. Yeah, criminal activity! Every phone is probable cause especially since they're using contact tracing against the people who are either protester who were arrested I can't remember, but you were within proximity of a crime, but everybody's in proximity of crime especially these days when everything's crime, yeah? Wow. That's Kooky. So. There was another covert thing I wanted to mention now that we're on that. Oh this is what I want to say back Kobe that there. I remember saying there going to be permanent effects of COVID and I wonder if it's like they're rolling out five G. and there's oh well after covert. Everybody had this problem, but he didn't know what it was then. I saw today an article in the journal that said this person. This man had was trying to clean out his mother. His mother died implied of course covid. Covid and he was read it try to smell her perfume to get a whiff of her, and he noticed for the first time that he can't smell and he he is reported as a permanent side effects of Covid, but they also say that loss of taste and smell is can be from five G. now. I don't know if that's true, but if it I just think that's a something, a flag because I did think that they would. Say that there are permanent facts a cova if there was anything. That came out of the five G. that they are clearly implementing as we down yeah and. It also plays into the division narrative of conspiracy theorists, saying that five G. O. also causes that. Yes, you're right. That might have been an Easter egg meant for me to find. It was pretty cute. Yeah, interesting interesting. Let me tell you the cyber article so obviously. I read the newspapers say which I just don't even read..

"Tenure did not outlast a single day that he always was this same day. I didn't even know that same day. His last day was my last. Oh my gosh and I don't. I don't think it's the new program director. I just think that the new owners everything changed that day and I really think that the old owners were just an old school media. Company was Cox Governor Cox. I guess was a senator way way back in the day. And he had a Cox Commission to investigate tax exempt foundations and stuff like I think they had a tradition of kind of having. It was just very old school. I didn't know wire is on the air. I always puzzled over it but I think maybe they were just old school. They thought people wanted to hear it. And they were grooming me for that but the new boss is a totally different animal anyway so so I just think this guy just was always like hey yeah whatever but he would tell me when I would get complaints. Which he was shocked at. How rarely anyone ever complained about me. Because I said stuff that really like you know your jaw would hang open but the one time he said you know this was. I never saw so many complaints about you when I I said I wish. I wish I had thought more. This is what he said. I wish I had thought more about getting my kids. Chicken pox vaccine because it turns out First of all it's not fatal illness and it turns out that it does not impart lifelong immunity. So I kinda screwed them because it would have been good to have that. Whatever people went bananas because I mean? Cdc has an intelligence arm. So you get them the chicken pox vaccine and I got my kids each. Have Forty eight vaccines okay? I never the only one I didn't do as Gardasil. Thank God anyway. That's another story but but like when you watch the eventual one thing and you see the CDC guy there he's wearing military uniform the CDC is like a little weird and that chick who was the ebola resistor like the nurse who works with people and deny would writers or bike yes. Regatta quarantined like you said and she was called a libertarian. And actually that whole story just got got completely erased. Memory hold immediately when natural news put out her yearbook photo for joining the CDC Intelligence Service. Interesting yeah so the. Cdc is a lot more serious than you think you might have thought but that so we post that people WANNA listen. But I had done a few we had done a few eventual one shows before that so I do think that if if one thing had to had to put the eggs in one basket of what like what happened. What really really happened. I think that that happened that I talked about this was just. It generated a lot of complaints and the new owners. Were totally like yeah. We don't want that because they're cfr anyway also to that point in the of it to a one description. The simulation part of the thing is rooting out what they call disinform that undermines the narrative in China to say some of the stuff that we have said they have talked about the death penalty in China. They've talked about criminalizing here in the U. K. They've talked about criminalizing that stuff. I would much rather be Cheryl adkison and then Michael Hastings right so fine with me. We'll just do this totally got it as the as the title of Spiro. Agnew Nixon's. Vp's biography was go quietly or else. Right I'm fired that I will never speak of this again to go wicked headlines. Listen to our post from yesterday if you want to. Chime in yes. More than ten schools in Seattle reclosed for deep cleaning over the corona virus concerns and facebook has pulled out of south by South West over the fears of the corona virus so Fever be missed yes well. The fears are real major company like facebook signaling other companies follow suit. They will all of this all of this. The impact of all of it has been the reaction and not the actual thing. Actually I got a little choked up at mass on Sunday. Because I can't take the host because I have a like severe gluten thing so I just take communion wine and they wouldn't let me and I actually like shed tears. I didn't even think I was that religious. I was just like but I believe it. I just got fired. So they're not doing. The communion will bring gluten-free hosts forever. And I just was taken off guard and it was so upsetting to me and then like culturally like. That's what's happening. It's the propaganda reaction. It's the panic. The cultural impact and they talked about cultural impact and the events who are one thing. And that's what I'm saying like. I don't know anyone who's laid low with this illness. But there's lots and lots of impacts I think I was personally impacted. And you gotta you gotTa admit if you look at this thing eventually won the media the academy academia politics big big global corporations. Everyone is towing the line and I'm not saying they've all heard of event to a one but there is what the science community. There's one thing that at least the scientists should be calling out for from the rooftops. We are not actually testing for this exact virus. We are just making these numbers up and you need to look at it in the context of year over year flu colds pneumonia deaths. You need to have verified cases as a as a statistically sound sample set like you just need to be doing the science on on the vectors on the growth on all of it. And they're not. You're not getting that kind of data so you don't have to know about event to a one but nobody is really reporting on this with any kind of rigor and that to me is makes it clear that you can say who's say there's not some big conspiracy everybody's in line here. Everybody that's what fear will do. I'M NOT GONNA lie. I don't know what this virus is. I know what it.

Y. Z. no I mean the they're one of eighty eight cities granted they are the largest but not have their own funding sources so cities also have their own funding sources well so the sales tax within the city goes back to the city as you know with Bourbon right but we used to come to Mike Antonovich and we would come begging because that was when we're starting with issues in the community where we need to county money and they were always with C. B. D. G. funds trying to collect every opportunity could from another deeper pocket how many states have a budget of thirty six billion dollars of rats that's a good a good point thank you is this a trick question no no no it's I know I do know how were they know we know we we do and I I mean I mean for example I tell believe my district is the size of Rhode Island but our budget is larger than many states but adds but when you talk about me development block grant which is CD BG that's federal program and we do have discretionary funds that are available to help with with agency pro nonprofits right but cities get their own CD BG commune development block grant money as well but it's never enough why we don't know you and say how can you help us bridge where we might be I'm proud of the fact that that I've carried on the supervisor Antonovich is tradition of ensuring that our cities get additional resources especially when it comes to parks as we get parks money through a proposition that was passed by the voters and that money is passed through the local cities when they apply for grants in our office and I've made sure that money goes back into the communities so Catherine Catherine barges with this LA county supervisor I do you think that we're over taxed well I mean clearly I think that there are areas where I mean I looked at my property tax and it's almost exceeding what the assessed value of the home is us I mean seriously I mean the the add ons that they're there the drive you crazy is anybody can talk to about it I talk to myself but you know I I'm careful I mean on the sale on the the gas tax now that's been a real source and that went before the voters I mean that was voted on by the people and my goal is to make sure that it's not taken input into other programs it's both adult arrow use you that people of that the people are worried about is supposed to go to roads and we you know you've got a project right outside of the studio over on the five freeway in Burbank right the Caltrans were waiting for them to finish and I'm it was C. Burbank and they're incredibly pressure it's a were hammering on them there are a lot of projects out there yeah I did the the empire offramp there took for five years yes it did in and it's it's incredibly frustrating right because traffic is already bad with that infrastructure that a state that's mandating we build one point four million additional housing units ins in southern California and we don't have the infrastructure to support these housing units and and by the way it's gonna be in areas where there are a recent article I read said there aren't jobs these people are gonna be commuting in prime so the sales tax the gas tax better go to what was promised to the people we hope it does but for instance our our Phoenix Arizona am I think was to sign that they're going to build an entire new freeway in that they had actually made a huge loop around the circumference of the of the city and they went to a private industry and they've they've hooked up with with private company and the public sector whatever the equivalent of you know cal trans is in Arizona and they saved I think it was thirty eight million dollars and the project got done in half the time that they that they applauded originally is there any way anything that we can do in this state to bring in private money to help these these projects go faster and smoother and and cost less so I I you know I know it can be done because after the Northridge earthquake I'm on the ten freeway Santa Monica freeways were called the one of the bridges collapsed and they actually waved a lot of the requirements and given incentives for the private contractor to get it done they got it done very fast right in in this city tried to screw them out of the bonus remember that well but again that was a katana remember that it was a contest a fee and that's why they in exactly that impacted you know people getting into their out of downtown and they put they put they put eight hour shift three eight hour shifts they worked around the clock but I don't remember the city doing that so I'm after I'm never look back but but the point being that you know is that sound like something the city of LA would do I don't remember LA doing that what I will say is is that you know when you look at what we're doing with the infrastructure talk about infrastructure the roads and all at metro we are looking at he's threes in public private partnerships were getting the private sector to invest and really capitalize on on the fact that we've got financing available but we need a partner to do it and okay and that that's important okay can you stay one more segment okay all right when I come back I want to talk about the valley because I have an issue with the valley of had for twenty years and nobody does anything I'm the only guy that talks about it and we come back I want to your opinion all right I Catherine barges whether it's LA county supervisor the only sane politician laughed in California one she steps down I get on the last helicopter out of Saigon kids sell the house and get into Arizona or somewhere also Michael Hastings as well as we're live on I heart radio on the app everywhere.

"How are you? I'm doing just fine. Thank you. Appreciate you coming on the program. Listen to start with you born in South Africa. And I think you went to school in England eventually and you ended up a working you spend half your career on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan. I mean, that's that's one helluva career. Well, thank you, actually, I ended up in school in Paris. And when I studied in what's over there. I never went to England. But you know, we were former colony so right joy. Yeah. That's true. Now, let me ask you this question lower before you get into some of the politics of the day. I mean, listen, you could have clearly easily gotten a job with the BBC as, you know, some reporter or CBS even domestically here in the United States, but you chose this a war correspondent occupation. And what what was your thinking in that turned down the BBC actually in order to take the job at sixty minutes. But my thinking that was very simple. I was like a homing pigeon with a GPS and that just was sending me. Straight to those places because I always I always knew that I could go to the end of the line and to see and do things that you know, maybe other people couldn't do. And I I was born to do this. It's in my DNA, and it's in my blood. Well, listen, God bless you. Listen to you. I've seen some reports and you were wearing a helmet and some dangerous areas. And by the way, I won't dwell on this. But I loved your you're you're sticking up for general mcchrystal back when the journalists wrote some nasty stuff about him. But that he overheard. I I like that as well. And I knew that guy Michael Hastings. I also knew David Bloom, by the way who you want a an award. Which is very special to me. Well, he was a war correspondent himself for NBC and he died in Iraq. But so so anyway, those and you almost lost your life. You're covering the quote, unquote revolution in Egypt interior square and mob descended on you. And I mean, it was awful you spend four days in the hospital, but you survived that, then you went back to work when I was gang raped and sodomized beaten for, you know, well over forty minutes and almost died, but what was really interesting to me was that before you know, when I was the darling. The mainstream media that was a big deal when people very sympathetic, and then when I when I did a story on Benghazi that, you know, people didn't like and seventy after that it was downgraded from rape to being groped on the streets. I one reporter. So that tells you a little bit about the politics of the moment that is extremely telling lower Logan, formerly of CBS. It really is because. Yeah, the Benghazi thing, I it was it didn't portray a Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama in a good light. And for you to shine a spotlight on it and ask questions about it puts you again in their disfavor. And that's when you first experienced the bias that exists in the media today. And speaking of that before. Gazar? One of your predecessors at CBS Bernie Goldberg wrote a book, he was he wrote a book called bias, and he outlined the bias at CBS that you experienced later on. But but that was the beginning of your nasty experience with the mainstream media and their left wing bars or yes. And it's interesting because medicine America, the propaganda organization that that led the charge in attacking me. They like to say that it was a failure of journalism, which is really joke because what propaganda organization, which by the way is their own words to describe what they do cares about good journalism. They don't they care about the propaganda that serve them. Right. And so the idea that this wasn't a political assassination. You know is just if you don't believe that. And then you just need to know that there's a lot more to the story than they put out there. And and if you look around today the effect of what happened to me is when do we hear news from Libya? What do we know about the failure of the US policy ended up? Yeah. And the failure of Libya today, which is an absolutely failed state. If you can believe it. It's worse today than it was under Gaddafi. And yes, reporters stay away from that. Because no one dares, you know, go to Libya and report the truth about that. After watching what happened to me and my sixty minutes team after watching what happened to you. And plus they don't want to highlight the fact that it was a stupid move. To take out Qadhafi at that point, which again, reflects poorly on the former president and the former secretary of state, and nobody wants to talk about that, of course. But allow Logan let's get into some contemporary politics right here. The president was just I mean, the mole report came down and he was completely exonerated no collusion whatsoever. We listened to two years of some of these reporters with and deep state actors former Intel people and and politicians talk with a tude about the collusion that Trump the President Trump had with the Russians. Yes. It's quite stunning to me because you know, as a journalist part of my job, and I'm sure you're familiar with this, right? When news breaks, I'm only study to figure out what do I need to be doing? What do I need to focus on something? I'm missing here. Is there a story that this might lead me to and the first thing I do for that just to try and separate the fact from the opinion from the analysis and also from the spin, right? And this is what I told people, you know, from Portland Oregon to Campbell California to, you know, the Harvard avenue York to Pittsburgh to Tulsa, Oklahoma. When people ask me about this. I never dishonest or disingenuous I tell them straight up. You know, when I look around I see a whole bunch of anonymous sources whose motivation, you know, in bringing down their successes is pretty obvious. And and I posted you have sex. There's not a whole lot of factor cling onto so as a journalist not I mean, I've never done a politically motivated thing in my entire life. And and I look at everything as a journalist and as a human being and people who've seen my work. No that no one is ever watched. Her story of mine had any sense that there was politics in it, except you know, because I dared to choose to do a story about Benghazi, which for me wasn't even a political decision. And and when I look at what we know it was obvious from the very beginning that the collusion was a joke. Why because you had you had people like general, Mike Flynn who Trump brought him in as the clean. He was the guy was gonna clean up the intelligence agencies because it was an open secret in the intelligence community that they were bad elements within those agencies who had been abusing power, and and committing crimes using the surveillance tools of the United States, which were designed to be used against our foreign enemies, and using it against American citizens and contrary to what we've been normalized to kind of believe that is actually illegal, and it doesn't just happen in every election. It doesn't just happen. All. All the time. It's a violation of the constitution and of US law, and my friend was going to clean this up and hold people accountable. That's why Trump appointed him. And so he was the first to be targeted, and it was kind of ridiculous because you know, you wonder did any journalist actually reporting on this. Do they have any sense of what the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency does the top intelligence official? We were fed this narrative that Mike Flynn was vulnerable to be mailed by the Russians because it had this phone conversation with the Russian ambassador that oh my goodness. Then he then, you know, had lied about. Does anyone know what the CIA does why one of the resource this is to monitor foreign diplomats on American soil, and by the way, foreign governments. They use their spy agencies to monitor American diplomats on their soil. It's standard spycraft. Okay. It's one of the most basic tenants of of espionage for any government and at the same time. What is counterintelligence? Do. They wanted to. They senior US officials who are interacting with these people because that's how you find out if your own people are between you so the idea of the head of the Defense Intelligence Agency had no, you know, did didn't expect that the CIA and counterintelligence knew exactly what was going on with those clothes in the Ryan had something that intelligence agencies didn't have. I mean, it's the most basic form of journalism to figure that out. You know, I don't expect that the average American is going to know this. That's our job as journalists. And when we don't do our job that's a red flag to me. And that's just one example of many that I could give absolute, and I know you can go on and on look it was it was corrupt journalists, and it was really some dirty. Cops dirty dishonest poss when you say corrupt because it's not just corruption. It's politically motivated, and and and it's propaganda and propaganda. It's done with. Purpose and journalists we are not activists. We are not lawyers in a court of law trying to prove a case, we don't get to just select the fact that support Alvin of the story that's not the truth. And that's not honesty that's being dishonest and being extremely deceptive and misleading though. You're absolutely right. They essentially participated with the for mentioned, the dirty cops. And and some of these politicians in what was an effort at a coup d'etat. There's no question about it. I agree with you a thousand percent on that. But let me just quickly on the way out because we're out of time lower Logan, and you're great. You're fantastic. What are you going to do? Now. Now that you are you're putting your your feelings on your sleeve. You're honest, your objective, and obviously that doesn't work at the conventional networks, what are you going to do now? Well, you know, what I'm going to keep doing what I've always done. I'm going to be a journalist, and I'm gonna try, you know, I'm gonna continue doing the work of a journalist. And I don't know exactly what I'm gonna do it for you. But I know what I'm gonna keep doing what I did from the very beginning. I'm gonna show up with as a story, and I'm going to report on it for whoever's willing to put it out. So you know, that's what you can expect from me. But I tell you what I'm not going to do. I'm I'm not going to. I'm not going to play the game. I'm not gonna be intimidated. And I'm not going to be silenced. I have a friend of singer songwriter jewel.

'cause we were asked to go talk to the French simply and all this kind of stuff my wife flew over to join us. And she said have you guys at this guy? And I said, well, I seem team did. And she said I read his book from Iraq. And I said, yeah, she goes, it's a hatchet job too. So that night Michael Hastings comes to we have my thirty third anniversary go with the very small group, but four six of us to dinner with my wife, then we go. Join this is this is uniquely military that you go for your thirty third anniversary dinner with your wife and your team close. They're all family. And so we then come back, and my one of my guys says the teams over around the corner at this Irish bar, would you go join them and just kind of put them up. So I go around the day. I respond the reporters there also. And he paints his picture of this drunken craziness that one I had a French foreign legion officer, I had a German offs, right and Afghan officer at British offs for several Merican 's you know, it was very international team. That's together fighting a war for a long time. And. At the end of the evening. We walk back to the hotel. And any goes, I'm glad he was there. I said why she goes he got to see what a team looks like. In the article came out, and you know, didn't paint team at the top of that. But anyway. So the article comes out a couple months later, and I get woken up in the middle of the night and said the article came out and said, what's the issue? They said it was not good. So I read the articles soon as I read the article, I say, okay, this is. Gonna be a disaster. And I didn't try to investigate it in my team. I didn't go in and say who talked to him, and you know, that sort of thing. Or who could have said things that were wrong. I just call back to the secdef and the chairman, it's okay. What do you want me to do this pretty ugly, and that was asked to fly back and see price? Then. It was an antibody experience because essentially indirectly I'm being accused of being out of control disloyal. And I always thought there were thousand things that could have I could be fired for incompetence or get killed. But never that. And I never felt anything but loyalty toward President Obama. And so I'm in this just incredible. But I also felt helpless. I felt like the wheels of this thing we're just rolling. And so there's not much that's going to be able to do about it flew back to the United States and went to the president offered by resignation, and I told him, you know, what have you?.

Then when I remember when I saw the piece I can only imagine what you thought when you saw the piece first off we didn't let him in the inner cancels we had we were doing a bunch of press because in reality. There was nobody selling the war sort of accept us out there. And so I was doing more press than I wanted to. And he was one of a number of embeds, but he wasn't around us long time he was around for a few set interactions, but he didn't interact with my staff, and he wrote this article that we thought it was going to be a pup piece.

"Amazon dot com and just pick up the paper back, and it'll condense all of this and more. It's I'm so thankful for you have me on George because so few people know about this kind of information. So thanks again for how my pleasure was there. A screenwriter who disappeared back in the ninety s and he was dabbling with this. Yes, now, this is kind of an old story a lot of people's kinda forgotten about this. But this is very important history. If we don't learn from history or doomed to repeat it. So there was a screenwriter very popular named Gary devore, and he wrote Arnold Schwarzenegger film raw deal, and and some other very popular films from the eighties. He was working on a film. About the CIA working down in Central America. Just got his script finished. And then he vanished. In nineteen ninety seven just just disappeared. And nobody found him for about a year. And then his Ford Explorer was discovered submerged in a California aqueduct his death was officially ruled an accident. But guess what his laptop wasn't anywhere to be found. And that's where his screen play was on. That's why he was out writing it. And so he had just called his wife and said, hey, finish the script. Everything's good. So he just disappeared the laptop disappeared descriptive never been found. And when he was found a year later, both of his hands had been cut off. But there was no explanation for this. Or how he just accidentally drove his SUV off the road and crashed into the aqueducts. So it appears that he was perhaps tortured and attempts to try to force them to talk cutting off his hands or his fingers. And so this is you know, there's a lot of kind of conspiracies about the celebrities. Dying getting supposedly murdered. But most of that is is just conspiracy nonsense from people who just don't understand how celebrity works. And and that these people are normal people that have used drugs and diet accidents, and from overdoses and natural causes and things, but this case of Gary divorce, he was working on the script about the CIA down in Panama. He was literally the CIA admitted that they were working with him. So he was in connection with the entertainment liaison office, which I've talked about. And so it's it's pretty suspicious. What about Michael Hastings the controversial author who died in a fiery one car accident? Yeah. Some people think that perhaps his car was hacked cyberattack? Yeah. On the surface seems ludicrous, but the Central Intelligence Agency and high level government officials, and now finally major outlets and people even in congress has admitted that newer cars and his model can be hacked into remotely. They're gonna have the breaks caused to fail. The pedal to the metal the accident assist or other features. They can literally cause the car to rapidly accelerate disabled the brakes just caused a spiral out of control. So this guy who was the man who wrote a very damning article about a high level military official gentleman crystal and caused loses job because of the report. So this guy was a thorn in the side of the establishment. And even Richard Clark. A former cabinet official in the Bush administration admits and this is in the book. Which has I'm glad you brought it up because it ties in with the sort of the Paul Walker alleged conspiracy murder, so people sort of take bits of truth, which are reasonable with this guy, the which could have very well been murdered Michael Hastings and the evidence shows that high level ficials admitted that all the evidence is there that this is possible. So people then take that and they projected onto someone like Paul Walker very popular from the fast and furious series died in a car accident a lot of people think that they'll all he was murdered a car hacked into. But that car wasn't able to be hacked that car was very dangerous professionals have said that that was a very unstable car. And so a lot of people have a hard time understanding what celebrities die. They elevate them to a level of God hood. But that's why I like to separate all of this fact from the fiction and in the book, I footnote in source everything and it's taken years to put all this stuff together. And when you really suck. Operate the facts from the fiction there is some really serious in undeniable evidence for a lot of what we're talking about. Let's take some final calls. We'll go to Mike in West Palm Beach Florida here. Mike, go ahead. You're on with us. Go ahead. Mike. There is no, Mike. How about Tom in the Bronx though, east of the Rockies? Go ahead, Tom. I like to say that you ever see the. The TV show nightrider. But the new version they had out for a while. Quite familiar with the Syria. The new version that they had out for a while there. Anyway, there was one episode where there was like an individual working with kit the car that. Inside the the big Araj. And they were a grizzly was murdered is going on it mirrored believe it or not you've member whatever happened. I think it was in Virginia. Or there was a there was this Torri and Jay that a student that went crazy. Abloy he was able to buy a gun, and he went and killed the Virginia segments that story mirrored this story believe it or not it came at a just about the same time. Well, there's so many crazies out there that this the media is so powerful, and unfortunately, the vast majority or a large portion of it is just so damaging to the mind into the soul, and I think combined with the breakdown of the families combined with these big pharma drugs, we're seeing these is rash of mass shootings. And and just very sick. And sad. People doing horrific crimes are they M K ultra mind controlled false flag patsies as many believe or are they just unstable. Out people rolled by this media, which is glorifying killing and death. And all that is wrong with society. If you give them a pharmaceutical drugs, I guess you could be contributing to this. You know, these a lot of these mass shooters are on these strange drugs, and it appears to get them over the edge. And unfortunately, many of the big pharma supposed solutions for problems could be remedied. If people were to start exercising or do yogurt reading or stop watching so much television or find, you know, start get plugged into the church and bible study in and they could have their mind in so cleansed without any of these drugs, in many cases, it's gonna Tom and Hillsborough. Oregon happens to be a first time. Caller, Tom good to have you with us. George. How you doing good, Tom? Thank you listening to your program with Mark and two things. I had never heard of that Sun Valley convention conference. Yeah. Me either. That was a very inches there a site or a place to actually find more information on that, you know, it is reported occasionally in mainstream outlets. So you do, and that's why I compiled it in my book because we have the photos, and we have mainstream sources that show and verify that the head of the CIA are every year are in attendance or former head of the CIA. So what is the head of the CIA doing meeting with all the major media companies if it's just a place for them to broker deals? Yeah. You know, it's obvious, and it's sort of an open secrets that that this is the place where the CIA coordinates with the entertainment in the media and the social media, and this is why certain services like, Twitter and Facebook are promoted and become the big ones. Or if they're if they're looking like, they're going to become the major ones, then they're brought into the Sun Valley conference. And then that's where they coordinate with the government to sort of give the government a back door to decide which hashtags in which topics are going to be censored or disappear down the memory hole. So I hope you pick up the book luminosity Hollywood. That's that's why I was calling. South. There are nineteen ninety seven was called wag the dog which had Dustin Hoffman and Robert deniro and Woody Harrelson and it plays on this. The tagline on was truth Justice and other special effects, and basically it's a distracting tactic of a spin doctor politics that replaced and huffman's the producer. It takes the attention away from tissues president who's having a sex scandal prior to an election year, and it happened basically prior to the release of the movie just prior to the Lewinsky released. Yes, that's where art was actually imitating real life. Well, the media is so powerful. And you know, we're talking primarily about entertainment, but the news media, which is entertainment, basically as well. I mean, they coordinate with the government through operation Mockingbird, George. I've talked about this for years. And it's it's very well. Documented fact at the CIA for decades has worked with all the major news media. And so you can't that's what part of really became a news analyst is you look at these top stories very often. It's they're not really the top story. They are chosen as the top story on all major networks, and then they sort of as a self-fulfilling prophecy. It becomes the top story. So the the major networks coordinate with each other through the Bilderberg group it through Sun Valley, and this is where they have their CIA handlers and their topics and the the issues they're not supposed to talk about. And what the media agenda should be for the coming year, and it is just mind blowing when you really start looking deeper into it more. Have you ever been faced with a strange situation where you thought your safety was at stake? You know, I don't like to embellish that. Yeah. I've had a couple of things a couple of weird things happened. I don't like to talk about them. But I believe that I'm protected by legions of angels. And whatever happens to me is is the the will will of God. It's pretty scary sometimes to be in the position that we're in because to if you Google CIA entertainment liaison office, I think like one of my YouTube videos is the second search result of the CIs own website. Now that could be only on my Google because they do manipulate the searchers based on your previous searches. So I don't know if that's true for everybody. But it's it's pretty scary times. Let's go to Danny in Santa Rosa, California, west of the Rockies, of course. Hi, danny. Hi there going. Okay, danny. Yeah. Just make a couple of statements. I. Up a satanic shirt. I've come to understand about the church is just kinda, you know, shock value atheist group, and really if it's being used at all by any type of clinical aluminum relief, then it's just a scapegoat because you know. Leave something out there in the open like that. Unless you want someone to find it. Yeah. That's the church of Satan wasn't really a church just sort of an idea very entry level satanism kind of designed for teenagers, and maybe college kids, but the other real hardcore stuff gets into some of that's when you start getting up into these other affiliated groups are certain black may sonic lodges. The p two lodge has been over in Europe has been associated with some very nefarious activities and murders, and so that's sort of the church of Satan, kind of an entry level thing. But but used really and attempts to try to spread the satanic doctrine of do what thou wilt around to society for more susceptible, people and teenagers and kids. Mark as we wrap things up with a few minutes to go. Does this continue to fester? Do you think? Does it get bigger the involvement with what you believe is the CIA into Hollywood. Or does it kind of Wayne go away because then getting more prominent last few years, you know, two thousand thirteen Michelle Obama appears at the Oscars via satellites to announce the Academy Award for best picture which went again to Argo which again, ironically about the CIA working with Hollywood, we have a job Hidenao vice president appearing here, we have people are so lost in an entertainment wasteland with. Just countless places to get media and YouTube channels and Instagram and vine, and so people are getting particularly the youth of the majority of them, certainly a small fraction of them. Very intelligent raised by great great family is hopefully able to understand how these mechanisms work and how enticing us to just get lost in this entertainment wasteland, but they they appear to be getting more powerful. I mean, we're seeing with everybody relying now on their social media accounts..
