Luka Dončić was good, but Hardaway junior was awesome. Hardaway had 28 points. Luca had 30 and it was the second half that really undid the Knicks.

Pratt accounts for 5 TDs, Tulane tops UCF 45-28 to win AAC
"Tulane won the American athletic conference championship and a likely trip to the cotton bowl by booting out Central Florida 45 28 in the AAC title game. The green wave offense rolled over the night scanning 648 yards of total offense. Four of the 6 two lane touchdowns covered more than 40 yards, including three of Michael Pratt's four TD passes. That's huge. I believe the first conference championship. And we kind of set in stone after last season. We knew the goal at hand. Perhaps proof for 394 yards and ran for 48, including the game stealing touchdown, while Tasha spears rushed for 199. I'm Tom.

Fresh update on "michael." discussed on TIME's Top Stories
"I spent 25 years in prison for marijuana charges. Biden's pardon is not enough. By Michael Thompson, Thompson 71 is a Flint Michigan native and criminal justice reform activist. He served a 25 year life sentence for cannabis offenses and was released in January 2021. Today he works alongside nonprofits, last prisoner project, and the Michael Thompson clemency project to help prison reform. Today, I am thinking about Kevin Allen, who is currently serving life in prison for selling $20 worth of marijuana in Louisiana. Marijuana is now legal for medical use in Louisiana. So why is Kevin Allen still in jail? Today, I am thinking about Rudy gamo, who is serving 5 and a half years for operating, a Detroit sanctioned medical dispensary. The father of three is currently incarcerated, while marijuana sale in Michigan has become a multi-billion dollar industry. Today I'm thinking about thousands of people who are arrested for marijuana in this country every year. Today, I am thinking about myself. I spent 25 years in prison for selling three pounds of marijuana. I was not supposed to get out of prison until 2038. I would have spent 6 decades behind bars, 6 decades lost with my family. I had a lot of help and support from many people and entire community and movement helped me get out, but I left a lot of people behind in prison. I can still hear their voices. They do not have the support that I had, even now, 25 years later, the main question on my mind is who has marijuana really harmed. From where I'm standing, it seems to have overwhelmingly harmed people who look like me and come from backgrounds like mine. On October 6th, 2022, President Biden announced a marijuana pardon for people convicted of federal marijuana possession. However, since no one in federal prison is serving sentences for only marijuana possession, zero people will actually be freed. Just the same this pardon will not do anything for the thousands in city jails, county jails, or state penitentiaries. Those incarcerated on these local levels are not benefiting from this pardon. This pardon was a grand claim, but as you look closer to you realize the reality I have known for a while. The system is rigged. Even now I am angry because after spending 25 years in prison, I was placed on parole for four years. There is no humanity or true consideration for a person's life when this parole choice was made. It is a shame that the criminal justice system can pick and choose what offense and amount of time someone gets in prison because of financial ability or the color of their skin. In fact, from 1992 to 2021, a majority nearly 55% of citizens and legal residents convicted of at least one count of federal marijuana possession were black or Hispanic, according to a recent report from the U.S. sentencing commission. The presidents were formed is a step in the right direction, but until we tell it like it is and say our criminal justice system is broken, we are just playing games, playing politics, and doing nothing but putting a band aid on a bleeding wound. President Biden was careful that this pardon was only extended to those in possession of marijuana. What about those sitting in prison for selling marijuana? It doesn't make any sense that states all over this country are making millions selling marijuana and those same states, like Michigan, have people serving time for doing the same thing. This isn't new, I'm just trying to understand why when two people do the same thing, one is a criminal and the other is a businessman. I believe everyone is serving time for any marijuana charge deserves to be set free, and without account on their record. I also believe we still need to do more. The day I found out marijuana was legal and being sold for a profit, I was wondering why I was still in prison. Why did I not only have to still serve my sentence, but also have to continue to fight to receive clemency. I know many people who are still serving time for marijuana charges are asking themselves the same question that even after marijuana was made legal, they have been left in prison. Prison is hell on earth. The conditions in most prisons make you feel less than human, make you feel like a dog. You become a number, a punching bag, a statement for a slick politician. You are at mercy of a broken system. So what do we need to do? It is bigger than just the a marijuana pardon. It is prison reform. It is fixing the broken system that is used to lock up people of color and destroy their families and communities. It is changing how people who are locked up are treated and giving them access to healthcare and decent food. It is rehabilitation programs, so when they get out of prison, they are set up to succeed and not get trapped by the system that is looking for any reason to lock them up again. The day I was charged, I thought I was going to be in prison for 45 days. Since it was a simple marijuana charge, I was told by friends and my attorney that it didn't warrant a serious sentence. I wish I knew then what I know now. The system was not designed to work, or at least not designed to work for a man who looks like me. A three pound marijuana sale is why I was standing in front of a judge that day. But it was a tactic like stacking charges that led to a 60 year sentence or a trap sentencing. When prosecutors stack charges defendants can be sentenced as repeat offenders, even if they have no prior convictions. This can lead to a trap sentence, a conviction that does not fit the original crime they were being charged for. Instead, they are now being charged for various additional offenses that may have nothing to do with what they were detained for in the first place. What President Biden is doing is good, but it is not all that needs to be done. It is one step forward in a long climb toward prison reform. The work I'm doing with organizations like the last prisoner project and the Michael Thompson clemency project is making sure that no one is left behind in prison, whether it be for marijuana, or because they received a cruel sentence that did not match their crime. So today I am thinking about my former inmates and Friends, Leroy Washington, and Horace Peterson, who deserve their country to give them a second chance, a fair chance, this time..
Official says over 10,000 Ukrainian troops killed in war
"A top adviser to Ukraine's president, has cited military chiefs as saying 10,000 to 13,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed in the country's 9 month old struggle against Russia's invasion. Michael podolak has given new figures about Ukrainian soldiers killed in battle, while noting the number of injured troops was higher and civilian casualty counts significant. The rare comment is far below estimates of Ukrainian casualties from western leaders last month, general Mark milley, the chairman of the U.S. joint chiefs of staff, said as many as 40,000 Ukrainian soldiers and well over 100,000 Russian soldiers have been killed or wounded, he added that it was the same thing probably on the Ukrainian side.

Stamkos has assist for 1,000th point, Lightning beat Flyers
"Nicholas Paul picked up a pair of goals for the lightning and a four one win over the flyers. Paul scored late in the first period with his tenth goal of the season, his 11th came early in the second period with an assist from Steven stamkos who picked up his 1000th NHL career point. It's one of those things that I don't think hits you until a little later. But just to share that with the guys on the ice, that's something you never dream of as a kid. Ross Colton, Eddie and Cole also scored goals for Tampa Bay, Travis connecting scored for the flyers. Michael luongo, Philadelphia
Tucker Carlson: Apple Purposely Disabled AirDrop Feature in China
"Cut 66, Tucker Carlson talks about how Apple has limited the AirDrop feature in China, play cut 66. Earlier this month, Apple did the bidding of the Chinese government to crush domestic protests against the Communist Party there. Apple did this by disabling its permanent AirDrop feature in China. So why did Apple disable that feature in China? Well, because that feature permanent AirDrop allows iPhone users to communicate directly with one another without using the Internet or cellular networks, both of which in a totalitarian state like China are controlled by the government. And that's why when iPhone users in China began using permanent AirDrop to complain about the Communist Party, Apple just shut it down. Apple is now an active collaborator with China's police state. Someone emailed this freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com. Michael says, you need to move on from Apple products to set an example. That's fine. I acknowledge that. That's why I led with that. I didn't want to act as if I was immune from enriching apple's ability to grow very powerful over our country. And what's so illuminating for conservatives is that for years, we were always told that if we had free markets and lower taxes that things would solve themselves through natural competition and that rule is generally true, but what happens when a company itself begins to infringe on civil liberties? What happens when a company doesn't actually act in their best profit interest, but actually acts in their ideological interest? The CEO of Apple Tim Cook, he is far more interested. In protecting and preserving the Leviathan that Apple has become Apple, similar to Google, by the way, has become its own government. Now,
Mike Gonzalez on Hispanics and Identity Politics
"Made fun of you. I made a little joke in our green room earlier. I used the epithet, the adjective Hispanic, you wrote a book, let's put it up there the plot. This is your first blockbuster book, the plot to change America. How identity politics is dividing the land of the free. This book is a real glimpse behind the curtain mic of the kind of divide and conquer philosophy, which has gotten us to a place where you as a Cuban or a family from Cuba, if you fill out an official federal form, there'll be a box that separates you from me that asks you whether your Hispanic or whether you're non Hispanic, how much has this identity pot. Let's start with this. How much is identity politics left political parties and ideologues and radicals and borrowed its way into government. In fact, because Hispanic is not a race, it's a questionable by itself in the senses. They ask you, it's completely divides the country into Hispanics and non Hispanics. And I choose never to answer the question. This is obviously an artifact of the activists of the 1970s who insisted that the Census Bureau create this category. Just make it up. Yes, and when the Census Bureau, which at the beginning, now of course, the Census Bureau has been infiltrated. But back in the early 70s, they were quite reluctant to do this. And there's a very famous exchange, which I quote in my book, in which a director of the Census Bureau said, we have all the data that you need. We have the language to speak at home. The nation of origin, you know, we have all that and they activists said, we don't want the data. We want the group, create a category. Let's unpack that. So what is the objective of the activist in the 70s who say to the bureau, we don't care whether or not they speak Spanish at home. We want a label. We want a box. Why do they want that Michael? Well, it's because once you have a group that you can isolate from the rest of the country, then you have a victim who category. In fact,
Why the Crypto Contagion of 2022 Eventually Hit Genesis
"Let's just start with where we're at at the time of this recording, which is that the collapse of FTX and Alameda may be knocking over another domino or two. Namely, probably at this point, the crypto lender genesis. At the time of recording, it has not filed bankruptcy, and I'll just add the word yet. And in fact, The Wall Street Journal quotes a genesis spokesperson is saying our goal is to resolve the current situation consensually without the need for any bankruptcy filing. Genesis continues to have constructive conversations with creditors. So additionally, The Wall Street Journal reported that genesis had reached out to binance which declined and to private equity giant Apollo for either investment or to bid on their loan book. Okay, so knowing that this episode will come out next week. What do you think is most likely to happen with genesis and also to its parent company DCG? If you don't want to make a projection, maybe just talk about how you're thinking about contagion and crypto lending in general. Who wants to start? I'm going to just volunteer Michael. Okay. Michael. Good luck. Predicting one plus week into the future in this current market environment. Oh gosh. Well, I think it's interesting that we've seen complete silence on the DCG side. I think that the thing that we saw that was different with Alameda was Sam was actively tweeting. It was kind of crazy how actively used tweeting. And so I think when I think of what you should look for, it's who's not saying anything. And I've asked my friend to possibly be working on the financing what's going on. And the people who are working on it are dead silent. You can see their telegram. They haven't responded with it. They've been telegram in two days. That means they're all night working. So there's something going on in the background that there are. There is some type of financing trying to be done. It would take a traditional finance lender to step in here.
John Zmirak and Eric Discuss E. Michael Jones' Antisemitism
"Years ago, I read some of E Michael Jones's books. And again, this is what Nick Fuentes is kind of following, right? I read some of his books and he wrote one called degenerate moderns. It was brilliant. He wrote another one about architecture and another one, I forget. But brilliant stuff, right? And so I visited him in his home and I didn't see the anti semitic side of him until right around that time, a friend of mine, doctor Jeffrey sat in over, wrote a brilliant book, he is a genius psychiatrist, he has a degree in quantum physics. One of the smartest people I know, not a Christian, but he wrote an amazing book from the point of view of a psychiatrist who had dealt with people struggling with same sex attraction. And it really an amazing, amazing book, sat in over his last name. And so I interviewed him and reviewed it ostensibly for E Michael Jones magazine. He hardly printed anything of what I wrote. He cut almost everything. And then he wrote a review that was effectively anti semitic. And I will never, ever, ever forget it. I read it and I thought, this, this can be, this is the whole, the whole review of this great book, which was homosexuality and the politics of truth by Jeff sat in over hinged on really an anti semitic idea. And that's when I realized 27 years ago, uh oh, I don't know that I can spend any more time. You're telling me Nick Fuentes who just had dinner with the president is following you, Michael. Right. That's right. And I'll just explain briefly to your readers. Michael Jones is a theological Jew hater. He doesn't hate them racially. He doesn't believe in Nazi crackpot racialism. He believes that any one of the Jewish people who does not accept Jesus is the moral equivalent of the sadducees and that he takes literally the statement, let their blood be upon us and upon our children. He channels the old old anti semitism of some of the church fathers and some people in the Middle Ages. He takes all that, not as a historical tragedy and abuse, but as an authoritative part of the Christian tradition. And he describes the Jews who did not follow Jesus as the synagogue of Satan and the mystical body of Antichrist. That has existed ever since the death of our lord. And as a sort of satanic counter church. And so he blames Jews for pornography, even though the Marquis de Sade was not Jewish. He blames them for abortion. Margaret Sanger was not Jewish. He manages to act as if the Jewish people by not accepting Jesus became Antichrist. And
John Zmirak and Eric Discuss Kanye West
"Lot of people tune into this program because we want to help them process what's going on. So we don't have to talk about it right away. But I want to make it very clear. Nick Fuentes, bad. This is something this is an example of sloppiness and bad staffing in the Trump organization. Recently, Donald Trump had dinner with Kanye West. That's a mistake right there, okay? Kanye West, when he was preaching the gospel of leading powerful Christian services, there was hope that this man had had a profound conversion and might have a powerful impact on the culture. But you always be careful with zealous new converts. You don't let them take over. That's what happened among conservatives. We let the neoconservatives, a lot of them ex communists, they came in. They were super smart. They were super articulate. We let them come into the movement. They took over and put America at war in the Middle East for 30 years. You don't let it's nice at the town poker gets religion. But you let her be in the back for a while, I'd really assimilate. You don't let her start preaching sermons right up top and take over the church's budget. Letting Kanye West be a major figure among conservatives and Christians was always dangerous because the guys kind of like Elvis Presley kind of like Michael Jackson, a super rich super famous guy surrounded by yes men. Anybody who speaks realistically tries to whisper truth in his ear, he will send them away. He has no restraining influences. So he's going to do and say, crazy stuff. Like apparently Kanye is now endorsing the black Hebrew, Israelites. These are the people you see in Times Square with giant signs saying that Obama was literally the Antichrist and that blacks are the real Jews and that John, where did you, this is such bad news. And I feel bad. Listen, I love Kanye, he's a sweet soul, but he is clearly, he's got to choose and he does not just as you said, doesn't seem to have people around him to help him to let him know like don't get near that. And by the way, don't say anything infinitely stupid like the Jews or anything. I mean, it's just so sick when people say stuff like that. It's astonishing to me.
Embiid returns from injury, powers 76ers past Hawks 104-101
"Well then basically the final 1376 is points in the fourth quarter to help Philadelphia for a one O four one O one win and basic consecutive baskets to give the sixers a one point lead with 18 seconds to play. It then had three straight free throws that sealed the victory. I just wanted to come in and fit in and, you know, whenever I was needed, that's when I felt like I needed to turn it off. And they'd finished with a game high 30 points to buy as Harris at a 24 Trae Young and Deandre hunter had 18 for Atlanta. Michael luongo, Philadelphia.
Mark Levin: Glad J. Michael Luttig Did Not Serve on SCOTUS
"J Michael ludik used to be a friend of mine I've been talking to him in a long time I have no interest in talking to him now quite frankly At first met him when I was 20 Going to law school And I was interning for the administrative assistant To the chief justice of the United States back then Warren Berger He had had the same position at one point later on I believe he went to the University of Virginia law school he clerked for chief justice burger not once but twice And there were very very close Each somebody who I supported way back when To go on the U.S. Supreme Court And all I can say is I'm glad he didn't I'm glad he didn't Because in the end he left the circuit court he went to work for Boeing as general counsel for some period of time And now he's busy writing things And it's too bad when you allow your politics in my humble opinion To affect your straightforward understanding and reading of the constitution

A Recipe for a Hollywood Fight
"Michael viner was the owner of dove publishing. He had a number of decent books that came out in the 90s, the most famous one was you'll never make love in this town again. And when I was dating Jermaine Jackson's ex-wife, Margaret Maldonado. She was working for him at the time, but for Michael viner. And one day she sneaked me in early copy of this salacious book, and no one had seen it yet, Margaret got the proofs and begged me not to show or tell anyone about it. I said, no, no, I won't. I'm not going to write about it. I just want to read it myself, okay? So I go back to the hotel or wherever I was and start reading this book and the proofs and maybe two years ago, I read a couple of the more filthy chapters on this show. The book contains a bunch of stories written by three prostitutes and one actress about this sexual encounters with a bunch of different Hollywood celebrities. There was a Robin and Liza grier, Linda Hammond, and Alexandra daddy. And inside are all these lurid tales of what these girls discovered while having sex with the likes of Nicholson Warren Beatty, Don Henley, Bruce Willis, Robert Evans, John Claude Van Damme, Mickey Rourke, on and on. And a very, very detailed stories. Whether they're all true or not, I don't know. It's just the horrors point of view. So my jaw was on the floor when I started reading this. A couple of days later, I'm at Evans house for one of his great get togethers. Robert Shapiro, Geraldo Rivera, Jacqueline bessette, Beverly Johnson, Neil sedaka, a lot of luminaries in addition to the dynamic to all of Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty, who are always at Evans house back in the 90s, and now I have all this information inside me bursting out and I don't know that Jack Warren and bob know about this. And then my eyes couldn't believe what I was seeing. The publisher Michael Weiner walks into the party. And he lived a few doors down from heaven, so it kind of made sense, but I know all this information from the book he published and I grabbed Margaret and I go, what the fuck is he doing here? She's like, what's the big deal? I go, he's publishing a book about what a few hookers have to say about a few of the men at this party. But balls on this guy,
Bills, Vikings and Cowboys score Thanksgiving wins.
"AP sports, I'm Mike Reeves, it was a busy Thanksgiving Day in the NFL with three games on the schedule, the bills were in Detroit to meet the Lions, correspondent Denny cap, was there and has this report. Tyler bass boots a 45 yard field goal with two seconds left as the bills hang on to beat the Lions 28 25 on Thanksgiving Day, passes heroics from 8 necessary after he missed an extra point late in the fourth quarter, which allowed Lions kicker Michael batchley to sign the game on a 51 yarder with 23 seconds left. Sometimes you do everything that you write and sometimes you just get unlucky. We got unlucky, but we have a great group of guys that support me and have my back and I was able to reset and focus on the next big. Josh Allen put bounced into position to win the game, orchestrating a 48 yard drive spurred by a 36 yard pass the Stefan Diggs. Bob Stephens was on hand to watch the cowboys host the Giants. The Dallas Cowboys rallied to defeat the New York Giants 28 20 on Thanksgiving, overcoming a 13 7 deficit with 21 unanswered points in the second half. Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy says the cowboys time of possession keyed the win. Excellent division win game we had to have and I love the fire team and really what tried to break their method. And one thing I'm talking about is controlling the ball was a big focus for us today. That Prescott threw for 261 yards and two touchdowns the Dalton Schultz, CD lamb caught 6 for one O 6, while Daniel Jones threw for two 28 in a touchdown for the Giants. In Minnesota Kirk Cousins finds Adam Thielen in the end zone with 9 34 left to give the Vikings a 33 26 win over the Patriots, it was cousins third scoring strike of the game, just a phenomenal catch by him. I thought that the way he's able to catch that football, keep his feet in bounds. It just says a lot about his ability. One of the things he does really well is his body control and he's just overall athleticism and he showed it there. A great play by him. In college football, Mississippi state gets passed almost 24 22 in college troops in top 5 action number one North Carolina and number three Kansas are winners. I'm Mike Reeves, AP sports.

"By the way, no one's ever described their thesis project as I bet people who were close to me then detected the how transported I was by the experience. I had never written for school newspapers. I didn't have any like since I want to see my name in print any of that. I had never been encouraged by any teacher to be a writer. No one ever in my entire life. It said, Michael, wow, you have a way of turning a phrase. Nothing. What did they say about you? Pay attention, Michael. Or the truth is that I had moments as a student, but it was more, while that was original. That was what I would get. When things were going good with a teacher, when there was an a on the top of the paper, it was like, this is an original piece of work. And so that I had a little of that, but so I sit down and write this book. The thesis is not as trivial thing. If I showed it to you, it's a book. It's a 50,000 word book. And what it is was total immersion in a subject, where I felt, however, bizarrely irrationally, that I was saying something totally original that was important. And I immersed myself in it, and so the mistake I made coming out of it was first thinking, oh, this means I'm supposed to be an art historian. And my thesis adviser, who was fabulous, said, you can't be an art historian. Basically, because there aren't going to be any. This is a dying industry. And I would not wish it upon my worst enemy. So taught me out of that. And then he says, at the defense, this was very funny moment. This is how I knew. I woke up to the idea of writing. I wanted to hear how well written my thesis was. I didn't want just a good grade. I wanted him saying, I wouldn't say this is beautifully written. And so he didn't say that. So I asked, I said, so what did you think of the.

"You're dealing with fragments and partials. And you're dealing with them necessarily in that it's not an option to just say, oh, I'll just wait until the fall clears. Because if you've waited until the fog clears, you're overrun. So the nature of the uncertainty is different. And so the degree of nerve, it takes to make the decision is also different. I mean, I love car counters. Some of my best Friends are card counters. That's gonna be the headline of this podcast. Michael Lewis. Some of his best friends are card counters. It's absolutely true. Some of my best Friends are card counters. But the nerve is sort of like getting the nerve to summing the nerve to possibly get your knees chopped off by the casino. The actual act of counting the cards and all that, it's not that it's automatic in a way that the decisions charity has to make are not. And the stakes, the stakes are the card counter loses money. If charity is wrong, people die. And if she's really wrong, maybe she dies. So the stakes are way, way up there, and it really did feel. I know it sounds melodramatic. I felt like I was watching a soldier at war, watching her do. We kind of retracing steps that she had where she had been when she was serving as a local public health officer. Now this is a woman for context who's 5 foot 6, very slender when she is working in a field mostly dominated by men. They are often shocked by her by her presence by her persistence. In part because of how she looks and she says, the inside doesn't match the outside. Men think my spirit animal is a bunny and it's a fucking dragon. Yeah, she didn't say it as calmly as you just said it. I can do it more frantically if you want. No, you have to do it. Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games and you're more or less get the tone. There's no chance I'm gonna be like Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games. Anyway, in any way. So this is right in the places where medicine met public policy, that it was a very male place. And she was constantly in a room with people who knew less than she did about something. Say, how to control tuberculosis. And those people were constantly explaining to her things that, in spite of that, that she was constantly being condescended to by her inferiors. And that's an irritating situation. Have you ever been condescended to by your inferiors? You know that feeling? I think she lived with it. I think she I think where you know this person actually does not know anything like what I know about this subject and they're trying to explain it to me. And in the bargain that she was almost always the bravest person in the room, like the person who's most likely to turn to the person to her right and say, come on, grow a pair. And so the combination led to as you can imagine, some conflict. Lots of conflict. Yes. The thing she says, though, that I want to kind of pinpoint is that the inside doesn't match the outside and something you've often said about yourself is I don't look the way I'm wired. And it struck me that in describing charity, I was reminded of you and how you must wade through the world, not as a 5 foot 6 slender woman. But I have that's what's inside me..

"Florida's hockey team. You say. The dogs are the love at this point she's only 8 years old, but if you could see her, watch her when she sings this. She has this beautiful look in her eyes and she's already connected with the audience. You can really predict she's gonna go somewhere with this singing thing. And it was so fun. 'cause I used to go to the games all the time anyway as a kid, my parents would take me, and I had really bad luck. I was hit by the puck like twice. And so I got to ride the zamboni. Because they felt bad 'cause my wrist was broken and mangled and I was sad. So I was already a huge panther's fan growing up, so getting to sing and having that be my first real gig kind of was so sweet and so special. And so, yeah, it was really cool. And I remember finishing and being like, I want to do it again. You would get hit 20. I know. That is my total luck that really set the pace here. It sure did. But really, Ariana says the bar high with everything she does. I mean, have you heard this girl saying I have nothing by Whitney Houston? It's one of the hardest pop songs there is. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I love that song. That's always one of my favorites. That was one of our first songs that we did together when we had our one of our first lessons, right? Yeah, exactly. I remember I always think of you with that song and how great it was. I think it's one of the best songs ever written. I love that song so much. And then when David Foster came and played the piano for you that night, remember? That was crazy. For anyone who doesn't know, David Foster is a hugely successful songwriter and producer. His really long long list of collaborations includes artists like Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Michael buble, the list is endless. That was so insane. I remember being like so in awe and just so shook that that happened. This was obviously way later for those listening who don't know the context. This was after 13 and after I met Eric, and he had introduced me to David and I got to sing it with him. And that was a really cool thing. That was at the forum, but she also sang it at my house at parties. The only parties just fort context that I've ever been to in my entire life have all been Eric vitro parties. Just so everyone knows. I have been to four parties in my life and they've all been Eric vetro parties. Not true. It is. I promise. They were the best. It's so much fun. There's always so much music and so much singing and great companies, so. I gotta tell you, there's something really so special about seeing Ariana sing in an intimate setting. You know, in a house or in a backyard, at a small party. Of course, not all of the parties we had were small and cozy. For one of them that her mom Joan and I threw together, we actually crammed about 300 people in a gigantic tent. We put up covering my tennis court. We brought in all white sofas and chairs. We placed a gorgeous grand piano right in the center behind the pool and the pool was filled with floating white candles. So it was pretty magical. But whether she's at a stadium with 50,000 people are in a tent. Anytime the Ariana is singing, she brings her all. Even when she's doing karaoke with friends. Oh my God, that was the best night of my life. That was so much fun. And I remembered, I was mesmerized because well, first of all, you knew every song every melody, every lyric and you could improvise on them, which was amazing, but also I don't know if I've ever seen you look more joyous. Here's the other thing more at peace. You looked so peaceful like I wondered if you wanted to talk about a little bit. How has that developed your voice and taste? I think the theater music gives me so much joy. That was the most fun night. It was like such a precious thing, theater babies. It's just a different kind of nostalgia. Listening to musical theater is a different kind of fulfilling car ride. You know, like if you throw on some avenue Q or wicked in the car, you're just guaranteed to feel comforted. Search for backstage pass wherever you're listening right now, and enjoy. It won't be hard..

Go to urban dictionary dot com. It will put a silencer on it. Goes here's here's a description of it. A word to describe. This is another spelling of it.

"At once covert climate and the coup we are in a disastrous ecological pandemic. That may also be the cause of the corona virus pandemic. Mother nature has decided the only way to protect her. Earth is to attack those trying to kill it us by fire flood virus. Dead oceans drought bats biomass starvation. She she just throwing everything at us to see what sticks. And i'm guessing she's thinking two or three more pandemics should do the trick. With these mutant apes the final pandemic thrust upon us has been the impending death of our democracy a plague of millions of people who know that their race is being depopulated and are hell bent on destroying what's left of our system of elections governance and our hopes of equity and fairness and freedom. They are the super spreaders of hate and ignorance and are only comfort. Right now is that there are about ten million more of us than there are them and thanks to their believing that kovic is a hoax and bleach is a medicine. We are now going to ironically outlive them. Because we lined up and got the shots that trump himself ordered for us. So maybe there's hope here's how my new letter to you will work.

Think of it as a million of us coming together and acting as one finding ways to embrace each other to embrace in protect our democracy and to embrace this fragile world which we inhabit. I have been a witness to forty. Plus years of those in power seeking the dumbest down demoralizes crush our spirits and keep us in a place with little or no political or economic power. If we want to speak up to write broadcast ourselves to have our voices heard. Where do we go. Ask anderson cooper to have on his show tonight instead of a hedge fund closing local paper. How about just giving it to us. And then there's social media and let's be honest. They're all massive corporations complete with their own often. Insidious motivations to drive eyeballs. That's what they call it to drive eyeballs to get clicks no matter what. The cost is to our social fabric. That's what passes now as freedom of speech my dear friends. I am longing for place to have intelligent. Civil exchange of new im- brave in beautifully radical ideas a platform where. I can right what. I want to say to have a thoughtful conversation with you to truly connect without the trolls and the bigots stinking up the place. I want to act with you all of us now in ways that will actually affect change. Because you and i both know that our time is running out. I've been shaken by wass the sheer subsumed by the injustice of it all and consumed in a quiet rage and buy some strange accident of will. I began recording a podcast in my tiny guest bedroom.

People listening to this podcast. We've gone on to create their own. Podcast i'm so happy here this now more than ever our voices need to be heard in now my letter to all of you so our empire has once again lost another war. The last war we one was seventy six years ago this past sunday at some point. Don't we get relegated. Out of the premier league. Don't we eventually get sold off to yahoo. In two thousand one in the days after nine eleven mine was a lonely voice insisting that we not invade afghanistan on september fifteenth. Two thousand one. I sent a personal letter to my email list. Saying this i feel. I have a responsibility as an american to speak out and say what needs to be said that we the united states of america are culpable in committing many acts of terror and bloodshed and we had better get a clue about the culture of violence in which we have been active participants. I know it's a hard thing to hear right now. But if i and others don't say it. I fear we will soon be in a war. That will do nothing to protect us almost twenty years ago in a subsequent letter. I asked the nearly one million people on my list to join the trying to stop this war. Many of you are on that list. You inundate congress with calls and letters and although we couldn't stop that war nor the one in iraq. We did continue to organize to march to vote into raise a generation who grew up to be overwhelmingly for peace and who detested war. In fact since nine eleven nearly eighty million young people have become a voting age. I continued sending you those letters sometimes upwards of twenty thousand of you would write me back. These were the days though before social media but soon we would all switch to likes in tweets in letters in emails began to fade. I miss that immensely. The more personal and intimate discourse that we could have and it wasn't long before many others missed it to facebook had made a stupid twitter made us angry. Instagram just made us hungry for well. The food emails. You know the thoughtful letter to long lost friend or the angry missive to a member of congress did eventually make a glorious comeback so i want to reconnect with all of you in this manner by sending you my weekly letter with a bunch of new thinking and fresh ideas in how we can turn things around. We are in the midst of trying to survive three massive pandemics all.

"That is something that is really a knock against the society in some. That should not be taken lightly. Khumbu had this great ethical reflection the guillotine. Which i think i would encourage people to read so this is a this is a very complicated issue. One the knox against anarchism is that utopia right and i would argue. And i'm sure you would agree when you have criminals and were accused. Criminals You you know you don't wanna put away innocent people and you do want to make sure you get the ones who should be removed from society. So how you get. There is not going to be easily answered under any system. Yes i agree. And i also speaking of this non utopian stuff the most important thing right. Now you know This word praxis comes up in a lot of anarchist or communist discourse. The practice is very important because we actually have to do stuff. And so i i you know. I know that there are some conservatives and buckley to to a degree certainly indulged in this who punch right a of the time. And i just think it is madness right now for people who in any way consider themselves on the right whether the traditionalist religious right libertarian anarchists. Whatever is you want to add. There is now a consolidation of power at the level of the ruling class and liberal establishment. That is about to prevent us from using pay pal. It's about to prevent us from using. I mean it actually pay pal made this announcement today. they're teaming up ad l. I mean this is really terrifying stuff. And so i agree we need to boot utopianism and figure out a way to push back against it and michael. You offering a white pill. And i'm going to say one more thing. If i if anyone listening to me listen might vice focus on government schools because government schools are literal prisons for children and the only place many people experience violence in their lifetimes. And now that's won the silver linings of these lockdowns that increasing numbers of people regardless of the ideology realized. Just how depraved and dangerous. These schools are and are taking their kids out so if conservatives are skeptical of the government as they say do not hang your children over to these people to raise them for you and be surprised when they come out despising you and everything you stand for. Yeah i mean and you even see the extension of school. It went from first through twelfth and they added kindergarten and preschool. Then now's subsidized college They're going to eventually have your kids for like twenty years straight. I kid you not a relative of mine sent a kid to preschool at like two and a half. That preschool is an shaded. Obviously shapes your child's mind educates them right at develops who they are and a very important not to give Give the state that power to give the ruling that power. Michael you are seriously. I say this sincerely one of the most intelligent people out there in the right wing media today. You haven't convinced me on anarchism yet but we'll have to save that for next time. Perhaps and thank you for being so interesting. Yeah wait a second hold on here.

"So that was the worst thing is just law it's a complete fallacy if you read the book at essay my book The minimum jekyll john house. Who's georgetown law professor. He talks about how this concept of just law is really nonsensical. And i'll give you one example that you that you will agree with. It's in the book as well. There's an old lady and she basically signed a contract with some samba instructor for ten thousand dollars right. What's the just approach. One say the point of law is so people. Don't get exploited. We have to break the contract. The other person can say the contract is the basis of law. It's not the courts job to be an activist judge. We have to honor the contract. Both of those are perfectly reasonable perfectly objective and demonstrate that no matter who the judge is. They're going to bring their preconceptions to the court system. But i had a decentralized both sides if you had a decentralized system where you can choose what kind of rules you follow. It will have much more just and efficient and cheaper outcomes but it. Isn't that only a problem. If you believe that the free consent of individuals maximizing individual. Autonomy is the end of government. You know if if you really believe that. This woman has some right to solve. The samba instructor has a right to sign a ten thousand dollar contract. Whereas if you think that's hogwash. And you believe the justice is the end of government. And you believe that you don't actually have the right to do wrong and you don't have the right to just pursue whatever whims your your will tells you then. Couldn't you appeal to a higher authority. Couldn't you say it's immoral. It's exploitative it's Violates some aspect of the natural law rather the so you're in favor of judicial activism when it suits your purposes. I'm favor of the natural law. And i'm in favor. Favorite justice if the basis of government is justice wise it so darned bad delivering it. Well if i if. I'm gonna go to a restaurant and they're serving sushi and the fish keeps getting cooked at a certain point. This is not a sushi restaurant. Sure but but you know this is a fallen world. I i suppose this would be one of my divergences from some anarchists or some sort of proto anna arguing that the words ball. I don't think this is a utopia topi as possible. I agree with you that there's a lot of depravity in any country that is inevitable so so therefore any system of justice is going to be imperfect. There's no question about that sure so so granted all of that you know. Some systems of justice are better than others. Sure i'm more interested in peace and justice and liberty. You know if you and i base maybe you you invited me out to dinner and then basically you stick me with the bill. Justice would be like a pitch a fit but at the same night could be like okay. That's michael being michael. It applied both michelson. Either of us be the jerk and situation and corolla is enough pursue justice so as cherish and sure and i lost short. I've always relied on the kindness of strangers. But i'm also biting my tongue right because you did meet. Do me an injustice and you didn't pay for the bill that you promised right. We all have to have these little compromises day-to-day lives. So i think justice as a term is overrated. Let's talk about criminals. I perfectly have no problem with someone. Who's an assailant on children or a violent criminal They void their right to life. Right i have no with that at the same time. My biggest concern isn't retribution. My biggest concern is how do i make sure this person is never in a position to harm people again. That to me is a far bigger priority. That seeing justice be had necessarily but but i recognize that temptation i think it's widespread now to make rehabilitation or deterrence instrumentation. I just said the goal of pre by prison is important in in many cases isn't justice but like gotta get this guy off the streets because if he's on the streets he's going to be killing people but if that is the primary purpose of the prison then don't you open yourself up to all sorts of of moral quandaries for instance if as i believe it is. The purpose of prison is retribution for people who've primarily retribution although deterrence rehabilitation are secondary matters. Then a guy commits a crime. You bring them up on trial you throw them in the can if the primary purpose of prison is to get bad people off the streets then. Couldn't you throw someone in prison before. They've committed a crime right because they're very likely to because some social scientific data set has suggested that they're likely to commit one well that is the progressive mindset. Right follow the science. And i don't think at all. I think you if someone has to have demonstrably actually done something before. They're likely to do something. I i don't think that you obviously don't think i don't either. But i think that if if you come to the conclusion that you and i have then you you must also conclude that the primary purpose the sort of pregnant for criminal. Justice is retribution rather than some secondary goal. I i don't think it's retribution. If the person hasn't done anything richard richard. If that's what i mean. I don't think you should go to prison if you haven't done anything. But i think that therefore the primary purpose of prisons for instance is retribution. That is to say it is justice rather than some secondary aspect of impressive i. I wouldn't agree. That retribution injustice are anywhere near synonymous and i think a lot of times again. I and my goal versatile. The prison systems a whole other conversation. Which i'm sure you and i can have because there's lots of people who are in prison and a thing you as a christian certainly would agree is Things like the death penalty and innocent people being killed although you might argue that the that's overblown when that individual is innocent..

"They come from very different perspectives. And so you know the famously. And the kind of buckley frank. Meyer fusionists coalition. You had the traditional conservatives libertarians and the war hawk democrats and they came together because they all hated the soviet union to some effect are they defeated the soviet union though. They ignored a lot a lot of things at home. But you've got then you've got anarchism which you know as you say is basically incompatible with christianity. There are some exceptions. I did not say that at all you did not. I thought you said i thought you said that. If you were believing christian who believes. I know no if you believe those specific aspects of christianity you have to obey your rulers And that and that these rulers are basically. God sent that that is not compatible. But if you're a christian you believe that. The bible is in errand. Unless you're a heretic. Like leo tolstoy or someone else. Well i mean. I would think tolstoy would regard you as the heretic here so easy. But he's wrong. Neither neither of us will ever be as raider mattis. Tolstoy it'll be. I think we're both much better men than leo tolstoy. By the way he was a he was a degenerate he was a very good writer but he was an absolute degenerative. Human bill in all fairness you and i both did hit the number one nonfiction amazon. Which i don't think he ever did so. We are better writers than tolstoy. Yes that is true. And you know tolstoy. He needed all of those words to right. I mean god that books on and on and you know my at least my. My first book didn't need a single word at all. So i think okay. So then okay. You got tolstoy aside but let's say you've got now in the new right. You've got anarchists such as yourself and other people maybe some followers of ayn rand or you know earth from that wing. Then you've got traditional just knuckle dragging to the right of genghis khan conservatives. That i would. I would place myself in that. Camp thrown altar abadi theocratic fascist. Whatever they want to use. Then you've got. I don't add today on foreign policy. I don't even know what would constitute a conservative. My question is practically is it. Is it the bush era thing. I don't think it's that is it. interventionist yeah. So how'd you get enough people together to unite that because know for all of them many faults that bill buckley had as he was trying to build this coalition. He did manage to bring people together and win at least a couple of elections. What how can we do that now. With all these disparate factions on the right. So i don't think that it's a numbers game. I think if you look at let's oppose it someone's pro-life right or pro-choice that only took nine people to make that decision The anarchists view and emma goldman discusses. This you know. In the anarchist handbook is the majority cannot recent so these vast number of people today will be arguing for you know a black lives matter tomorrow. They'll be wearing the yellow ribbons to support the war in kuwait They're really not of relevance to kind of balanced and history is always made. There's a book called the machiavellian with james burnham national review writer mention. It's always about elites for making history and making decisions. And if you and i both know the number of people who are making political decisions in choice and moving political thinking in america. It's gotta be under two thousand people. It's it's actually a much smaller number that people appreciate fiat and the people think tanks you know all of congress and senator all the governors and all of us jerks on twitter. It made her hitting five thousand. Sarah people tend to and that explains why you could go from obama to trump to biden to w before that this seems to be a vacillation you realize people are not politically involved necessarily and even if they are involved. They're just really knocked. They're going to be able to have perfectly contradict reviews so democracy is not a mechanism towards dear freedom and his effect and medical towards freedom that used to be considered very conservative view. I mean that was the view of the founding fathers even. They were struck this constitutional republic now though they were terrorists. Though yeah george. Boston has several warrants out for his arrest. They were saying we have to hang together. We're going to hang separately. They were ready to kill all those downing fathers. And that's right that's right. They certainly had they lost the war. They all would have been hanged without question. Oh yeah but but now. I don't know how this happened. But now we're told that if you in any way question mob rule you or it really. If you in any way question the ruling elite that you are a threat to our democracy our our. I say coriander by which of course they mean. They're all gorky right but then our jammies they need it. Oh i had that sweet. If you replace our democracy with our gemini everything because much more clear and the reason they needed to be hegemonic. They need to have a monopoly on the microphone. Because before you and i were born you had three networks and you had. Abc cbs and nbc. So you had the impression of choice with these. Were all strongly left of center anchors presenting things destroying left-of-centre context but it gives the illusion that. Oh i made this decision. I b instead of c. I'm an independent thinker. This is a big lie now. They're still apoplectic. The fox news exists right. And they're trying to regain a monopoly control cable news while at the same time. Fewer and fewer americans especially young people are watching cable news as a means of getting their information at all their turn toward the internet and daily wire and other podcasts and other resources like that that's another reason to be enormously optimistic. It's not people are no longer trying to argue. They're just turning off the television and you're not the audience is listening to you. It's really hard to control them. Yes and you know. I i love your observation about this. This illusory choice the idea we. Oh yeah good. My team won Except i'm not getting really anything voted for and no now. Their team went wait. They seem to just be pursuing. I i refer to the phenomenon. Sometimes as the the court jester conservative. I think romney types of their whole job is to luckily luckily was the court jester. You don't chew jokes. Aerosol can make your case because i still like buckley. But what's the are was the my book than you right. Demonstration buckley is the great villain of conservatism because his job was to be the court jester. The national review slogan standing thwart history. Yelling stop right. Well someone actually wanna stop it so you can stand there and yell all you want. But that's a declaration of impotence of powerlessness and he had some great lines when he ran for mayor. New york city. They asked him. What would you do if you want. He said demand a recount and was very clever and very witty but the same time. He's putting on this pantomime. Why is being completely steamrolled by the left And his biggest accomplishments politically many ways was checking out. People do his right. I'm declaring them on persons now. He had that power back. When media was more tightly. Managed to control but now You know it's very hard for anyone for better. Or worse. Certainly. there's worse aspects as well to have that position to be like okay. This person no longer exists yet. I do do see a lot of the criticisms of buckley. My my defensive him though is when you look at basically the wilson era through nineteen fifty when he comes out with god and man a yale conservatives had just consistently lost even we had republicans who just consistently lose and so buckley comes in and says i'm gonna stand the history yelling stop. He starts to turn the conversation slightly. He that first book. He makes a mockery of academic. Freedom goes after the institutions which i love by the way there many conservatives today who will defend academic freedom on leftists terms..

"Only play defense. You're not going to win. You need to Point your guns Toward the universities. Because that's where these ideas are. I promulgated where they train young people to be. The shock troops there for the progressive militia with enron hollywood who work in newspapers and they're the ones who shape the ideas of The country especially for young people. A lot of people frequently invoked nineteen eighty-four george orwell with this heart authoritarianism the book i would recommend. People read his aldous huxley world. a totally reverse. The persuasion is not with the stick. The persuasion his go work at this crappy job. Go home and watch stupid television we will provide for. You will give you food will put a roof over your head. Don't think and don't question us. And i think that model the realization that the corporate press has not just recently been a mechanism to sell narratives as opposed to information and to guide public opinion. But that this has been going on for a very long time limited one example. Which i think everyone can appreciate were all taught back in the. Dave william randolph. I the spanish american war you know a yellow journalism and that basically that led us into war during the mckinley administration. And then there's a record scratch and the corporate press is supposed to be objective and decent. That never happened. That's just one of the big lies That the media likes to tell about itself. Yeah yeah. I certainly agree with that. And you know this this sense of You know the the objective media just grew out of this liberal establishment that you know i guess sort of thrived in the middle of the twentieth century and increasingly is is collapsing. I i totally agree. You know orwell was huxley student. I think actually was his french teacher. And huxley wrote around seventy nine. I'd like your book by which you're missing here is the subtlety. You're missing how the regime is going. To use drugs. Promiscuous sex is gonna use pleasure to enslave people. Yeah and it's not. It's at that point becomes kind of like the greek myth of the lotus eaters. You're one the terms that you know. I've popularized which has become kind of loosened. Definition is the concept of the red pill. But if you go back the matrix the people who are in the matrix are having a pretty nice life. They have food they have a job they have a family they have to think about anything and therefore they don't have to worry about anything at. It's very useful. If i would like to be an elite to have a population which basically like an farm. Who aren't going to question my choices and just do what i like. The problem is at some point people. Wake up both on the right and the let's say this isn't working for me and then it's the media's job tell the rest of the population how to analyze this in how to receive it so one of the things why i'm hopeful and positive you'll agree with me on this after the twenty twenty election for the first time in my lifetime and you and i both fairly young the republicans and the right. Broadly speaking didn't turn their sights on joe biden. Nee turned it on media outlets are they realized. That biden is a symptom of a larger issue than biden. Himself is nowhere near as malevolent as many of these other entities and to realize. Okay these are the people who made something like a biden happen or or the lockdowns happen that i think that healthy analysis of who is against you is a much stronger position. I just make one more point. If you look at nancy pelosi and joe biden and if you look at. Let's oppose the harvard law faculty of the new york times editorial board which one of these groups of really has more contempt for you and your lifestyle and i think this is a very easy question to answer. Yeah yeah. I think you're certainly right. The the ruling elite involves a lot more than just a couple of politicians in washington dc. Frankly they're not even the most important people in in that equation right. You've got higher education lower education big tech hollywood the media all of these super national international organizations. And then you've got doddering joe biden. Who doesn't know which end is up. Absolutely now your answer to this is a very naughty word and freedom freedom three. Yes that's what. I just said freedom so i think what we've agreed basically on everything thus far. Now i think we're gonna disagree what What made you come to identifies an anarchist. What would how would you define. Anarchism is notoriously difficult to define people have lots of different definitions for it. And what does it mean practically if we said okay. Enough of our political system were going all in france. Baby sure so. Anarchism can be defined in one sentence. You do not speak for me. Everything else is simply. Application of the concept is the idea that political authority is inherently illegitimate. And just because laws passed is not give you any moral impetus to respect of follow it. In any respect it also means that when you look at the republicans democrats. You're looking at literally two different gangs. Who are fighting for turf war. Neither which have your interest at so. The black flag is the traditional symbol of anarchism. And i have the expression to black flag comes in many colors so the reason i wrote this anarchist handbook is different. Anarchist thinkers from the last two hundred years explaining what anarchism means to them and how it applies in terms of what that would mean right now it would mean things like An increase skepticism. The police because they are the ones who are forcing you and your home. They're the ones who are enforcing gun control laws. And every other eating that gretchen. Whitmer mario and gavin newsom flint to place it is having an increased skepticism of concentrations of power. Whether would be jeff bezos. The ivy leagues or the or the federal government as well as state governments An understanding that this idea of well. You and i disagree. But i'm going to respect your opinion when the person disagreeing with you is a politician and have the ability to enforce their views upon your family. You are under no obligation to take them seriously for one second and you should instead regard them with an enormous amount of concerns. Let's take a gun control issue for a second. You know politicians sits forward and says you know. I'm going to make it harder for you to get a gun to protect your home in your.

I've been following for a long time. Follow on twitter and everything and i said michael. I can't believe that you're you're just coming on the show now and he reminded me that he deemed me like two years ago. And i missed it. Like i miss every dm. Like i miss every text. But i'm so pleased. The michael could be here today. Michael thanks for coming on the show. You know michael interesting is always a euphemism. You have dinner. This guy see like he was interesting. He was interesting. Yes that's true right now. You know one thing. Michael that i so i i should mention. You need no introduction. But you're the author of one of the two best titled books in human history. Dear reader the unauthorized autobiography of kim jong il That the only other Book of an equally. Great title is When harry became sally by ryan anderson. I the author of the new right journey of the fringe of american politics The author of the anarchist handbook. And and this is especially what. I want to talk about the author of an upcoming book about the white pill a cause for hope in our absolute decayed collapsing ruins of politics. What is the cause for hope. Michael will you just said it. It's a collapsing ruined. Politics is a disaster. There's no possibility for freedom through a political venue so to watch you know the elites basically cannibalized themselves. It's very hard for me Whether you're republican democrat independent whatever so look at joe biden literally voiding battles behind the resolute desk and think to yourself. This is a symbol of an empire at its strength. This is someone who really has is on top of things as opposed to you. Know we can bernie situation which we should be looking at with a great comedic applause and then also follows president trump. Donald trump was basically a third party candidate. He had no routes within the republican party at all Historically he endorsed romney but barely says anything and he managed to beat every single republican candidate in the primary. So this just speaks to in many ways. The complete decaying weakness of both of our major political parties which from my perspective is a very healthy thing for a free country. Now most people would say the collapse in support for not just political parties but for basically every public institution is terrible. It shows you that. The country's falling apart i myself a little worried about it although for some institutions i think bye-bye don't let the door on the way out. But but you're saying from your perspective the collapse of of trust these institutions is a wonderful thing. Yeah i don't think things like the ivy league and the state are redeemable The new york times elements like that. I think what conservatives failed to appreciate is that these institutions have been this way for a very long time There's an argument in conservative. circles that hollywood's been taken over by the liberals but the same time conservative. Do appreciate that. Ronald reagan was president a screen actors guild and as president screen actors guild and previously. He was very concerned by the depths of literal communism not just communism stalinism Within hollywood so at what point wasn't hollywood of venue of the very hard left in the twenties when they had they didn't have talkies. Well yes i guess. If you can't talk you can't spread leftist ideas. But i mean woodrow wilson. Another great example. He was a college professor. The first college professor became president he was president in nineteen twelve and he was advocating things. Far the left of what even bernie sanders with advocate for today so i think conservatives by and large are supposed to learn the lessons from history but unfortunately that seems to not be the case very often and this is why. It's a big reason for optimism. The future woodrow. Wilson is a far more to various fo far more talented individual farmer. Charismatic than what amc. I mean there's just no comparison opinion but there was this sense among the old right. You know. I mean these terms old writing new right. They change every twenty years because you people and older but but you know of of what we would call the old and the fifties. They really were concerned with getting rid of the new deal. They were fighting against fdr. They were fighting against wilson them and then that just kind of went away over the ensuing decades the conservatives just gave up they kind of made their peace with the new deal in some ways they adopted. We'll sonian view at least a foreign policy and so You know that that to me speaks to the absolute entrenchment of of these sort of leftist progressive policies. You think though maybe they're not so entrenched maybe we can. We cannot end them. Oh they are insurance but let let's talk exactly what. Talk nineteen fifties. You have the the nomination was between dwight. Eisenhower who no one knew what his political resume was at all both the democrats and republicans tried to recruit us a great war hero and the republicans had mr republican robert. Taft to was a conservative republican tap. Got his ass added to him. Marley because of liberal republicans like new york state governor. Thomas dewey Who ran against fdr twice. Was romney republican before the term existed. They later called rockefeller republicans. So i think this idea that The republican party is has historically been venue for a shrinking state is really kind of an historical fairytale along the lines of the sixty ninety and project. When push comes to shove they've never really cut budgets at all The other other example to that was nineteen sixty. Four with barry goldwater force. Who's a great conservative hero. And he got his hands to him in that election. Which of course percents The reagan election in nineteen eighty but the relationship between conserved ideas or a limited government ideas and the republican parties is far more nuanced than i think. A lot of people appreciate true and actually going back all the way to the founding of the republican party. Let's abraham lincoln ran on tariffs. I mean the the party was anti-slavery pro protectionism. So that's not exactly a a small government a policy and you know even even after i don't think anyone would call abraham lincoln small government sort of president the guy's suspended habeas corpus. You know rightly. I think but still he. He did it and so yes. The republican party has not always had the small government ideology and very rarely has expressed it even in the twentieth century. So then where do we go from here. If the if the twentieth century conservatism was basically flop with a few nice moments during the reagan and trump administration trump. I guess being the twenty first century. What's the future look like because you you have hope whereas i'm a little Little skeptical you know. I think conservatives are basically diabetics who are trying to choose between coke and pepsi and wondering why their fee get to keep getting cut off at a certain you have to realize that if you can't vote yourself free and mitch. Mcconnell will always be a lot closer to hillary clinton he will be to you and your values so to stop looking toward washington for answers and also to start looking to wear. The toxicity starts if you're fighting in washington by that point is the fourth quarter..

"You see that Prayer in public schools now absolutely not permitted you see the bible in public schools absolutely not permitted and the arguments that were made at the time. We're all about the first amendment there you can't. There has to be a firm separation between church and state. first of all. I encourage you. I beg you plead with you. Find me that phrase in the constitution won't be able to do it. No such as exists acting as you know my i have to interject. Because it's it's one of the great moments in american history that gets so perverted. It's from jefferson's letter to the church. At danbury and the separation was the church was the state from the church not the church from the state. I know you know that it drives me. Nuts that has been so twisted and contorted it. Of course it's so important to remember the context there. It's also important to remember that. At the time that the establishment clause was was ratified and there were many not many but there were a number of states in the country that had established churches. So yes you're protecting the church from the state you're also protecting the individual states from the federal government but that that has become completely misinterpreted in in the way the history is taught in the country. so yes obviously. There's going to be some religious basis for the country now. I'm not saying that we're going to have the pope. Land that at ellis island and take over the country. But i am saying all political regimes have some ideas that go along with them. For instance our country says we hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That is a religious idea and that religious idea undergirds the country and and what what the left did and the radical atheist did in the twentieth century is. They went in and they said no. You can't you can't have that but it only cuts one way. Look at the free speech movement in berkeley. You had radicals in the nineteen sixties. Say in the name of free speech. We need to get rid of all. Traditional standards of speech and behavior now is berkeley the free speech campus in the country. Not even close. It actually has has some of the greatest censorship in the entire country. So i think it was always an excuse. I think this argument of religious freedom or freedom of speech. I think that was a slogan that was promoted by the left. I don't think they actually gave a damn about the free speech or religious tradition in america. And i think they just wanted to knock down the traditional the traditional standards and unfortunately so many people on the right of fallen for it and very often we pair at their rhetoric. I've just over a minute. Michael knowles is. The author of the book is speechless controlling words controlling minds. What do you hope not the politicians and elected officials. What do you hope. The reader who buys reads in embraces. This takes away from this in. Does i hope that the reader understands the history of political correctness up until now. I don't think there was a real popular history explaining what this thing actually is. And i hope it gives readers the confidence and the courage to recognize that. There's nothing un-american about having standards there's there's actually nothing new about cancelled culture you know in the nineteen fifties you get cancelled for being a communist. Today you get cancelled for not being on. The fact of being canceled hasn't change..

Some things are bad. some things true. Some things are false. Something's or write. Some things are wrong and conservatives have really been afraid to do that. They haven't had the courage to do that. Over the past fifteen twenty years. We've made a lot procedural arguments a lot of abstract arguments about free speech but the plain fact is that free speech in the abstract does not mean anything to people who have nothing to say well and we've grown very comfortable discerning between we don't have to have consistency to the point that it self-defeating we can say you can't drink if you're under twenty one but at twenty one. You can have that decision. You can't these activities. If you're under an age you make the point in more legalistic. Since the first amendment does not require a value neutral public square our conservative former conservative leaders thinkers writers have seemingly given up. And i think that's the point you're making is that they're saying well if if the kids have to be exposed to a grown man's penis in the school in order for us not to have our our churches shut down. Then we're for it well. No we don't have to go that far. That's not intellectually consistent and it's not good and by the way i don't think it's value neutral either. You know the premise of these arguments. Is that somehow. Secular liberalism is totally neutral. It's an even playing field for the left and the right. There's nothing neutral about it. We have to make a distinction. If bruce jenner is a man then he's not allowed into the ladies room. If bruce jenner is a woman then he is allowed into the ladies room. We have to decide and whatever we decide. That's going to exclude other options. Even when you think about the way the schools are run. There's one book. There was one book that you are not allowed to teach in schools. it's not even candy. You can teach him. It's not robin de ngelo. You can teach her. It's it's not mine. come for goodness sakes. it's the bible. You're not allowed to teach the bible in schools. Why because the supreme court decided in the twentieth century that it was unconstitutional to teach the bible in schools where they discovered that constitutional prohibition no one has any idea probably written in invisible ink beneath the emanations. And the number is in the fictional right to abortion. But think about how crazy that is the single. Even if you're an atheist or agnostic the single most important book in the history of our civilization. you can't even understand the other works of literature and history without understanding this book. You are not permitted to teach that in schools doesn't sound very neutral to me folks. It seems like we were at a distinct disadvantage. I think we need to assert political power to to take some some of that ground back. You talk in the book about the first amendment and what it does and doesn't require in how we've seen this contortions to get to the conclusions One of the things you talk about is how the atheist got the warren court to rule their way. How did that happen well. This happened around around this time..

"In marx's lifetime it turns out the oppressed masses in didn't care about all of those wonderful ideas that karl so the later intellectual heirs of mark's people like antonio graham sheet people like the funk for at school critical theorists people hurt mike urban makusa and down the line. They recognized that in order for a revolution to succeed. You need to grab the common sense. You need to attain hegemony to wage a war of position rather than a war of maneuver where you take Positions of influence within the society. And then you gradually infiltrate the institutions. And then you wield that power. And i think we're now at the stage where they're wielding the power. I think really in order to come back this scourge which which threatens the very hard of our civilization. i think we need to take these leftist theorists seriously. I i think we need to recognize. They actually probably know more about free speech and censorship than we on the right. Do no matter how much we flatter ourselves. And that's why they've been so effective wielding speech to attain political power. And maybe we can learn a thing or true and try to do that ourselves. Michael let me hold you there. The book is speechless. Controlling words controlling minds. he's michael knowles. We will continue our conversation. He doesn't just point out the problems as many people do. He has strategies for how we solve. This how we win coming up. Michael knowles is our guest. The new book is a bestseller already. It's just hit the stores or online wherever you buy your books. Speechless controlling words controlling minds. You do more than just pointing out. How the use of words political correctness is allowing the left to win. You offer strategies for what we can do differently because republicans are in many cases. Getting it all wrong. What are some of those strategies. I think what republicans need to do what conservatives need to do is articulate a standard a an actual substantive political vision. I saw this most notably during a debate that cropped up on the right some months ago where there was a prominent might say former conservative. I think now he's he's pretty solidly liberal. They still call themselves. Certain you gotta commentator who defended drag queens story our who said that drag queen story our quote. This is actually this. is david french. I was trying to be nice and not nathan you know. He said though. I'll have to. I'll give him is toward french. That another vendor good grief anyway sorry. Yeah drag queen store. He lots nec said that That it was quote one of the blessings of liberty. And that that sound you hear by the way michael that is that is the sound of james madison rolling in his grave at that very thought so so some conservatives responded to this and said if that's blessing of liberty than than i ain't for it i'm against it and of course you know this would have been completely foreign to our founding fathers understanding of liberty but but to be charitable to david's argument. What he's what. He's basically saying that if we tell perverts that they can't work for little kids at the public library why then the left might tell us. We can go to church on sunday. To which i would respond by the way. They're already telling us that they've already for the past year or more told us in many parts of the country that you can't go to church so practically i think that's off the table but then but then even more broadly if if you are really telling me that we cannot discern between perverts generally for kids and a pastor preaching the gospel. If you're if you're telling you we can't tell the difference then that means that we do not possess faculties where he's it means..

"But i don't think it's just the left's fault i think we have in many ways. Let them do that. And this is largely. Because we've misunderstood what political correctness is we tend to think political correctness goes back about thirty years or so to the eighties or the nineties. I think it actually goes back about one hundred years as i argue speechless but we also tend to think that political correctness. Is this battle between free speech on the one hand and censorship on the other. And i don't really think that's what it is. I think it's more. I competing battle of standards. And you've got the traditional standards that we conservatives would depend and you've got the anti standard of the left and so it leaves this track that we've continued to fall for and it's why the harder we push back against political correctness. The more ground we lose the trap is that i'd away that conservatives react to political correctness actually ends up advancing pc so you you've obviously got the squish is they. Just give give into the new jargon the new standards that use whatever. The new crazy words are and so that obviously advances pc but then even more stalwart conservatives who say i'm never giving into your new wo- crazy standard very often. They will ground their their argument on. Say free speech absolutism. They'll grounded on the idea that we shouldn't have standards at all. You should be able to say whatever you want. Do whatever you want. And ironically that advances political correctness too because all political correctness sets out to do is to destroy traditional standards. So i think that we need a third option. I think we need a new strategy. Because whatever we've been doing for thirty years manifestly has not been working well and would you trace that because you say one hundred years that lines up nicely with with wilson. Just after roosevelt and progressivism. Is that where you see this coming from. Well you certainly see it. With wilson wilson. I think rights probably the best description of progressivism that i'd ever read in his essay. What is progress. He says the constitution's outdated. That was that was developed. During the age of isaac newton when we thought we had six laws and the permanent nature to the universe but now we live in the age of darwin and because we're in the age of darwin. Everything's involving nothing's fixed nothing stable and so we need to basically take away all the constitutional protections. Give all the political power to a bunch of egghead elites and not let the people have any say over their government that was a major transformation and it was accompanied by a transformation in the way that the radicals approached politics. You know karl marx in a letter to arnold ruge called for the ruthless criticism of all that exists and from from this we get things like critical theory now. Critical race theory is very much in the news. But the the marsin revolution did not did not happen..

"He does a radio show. He's at the daily wire he's basically a man about town Modern day women buckley. If you will. He's written a number one national bestseller entitled speechless controlling words controlling minds and it came out just a little over a week ago. Well first of all we see critical race theory in the good work chris. Rufo's doing there and lots of parents across the country. Michael speaking out at at At school board meetings. We see tucker carlson revealing that. He's been spied on. Where do you even begin to to to start the conversation on controlling words and controlling minds. Why write this book. It seems to me that the issue of free speech is the most important issue facing our country right now. I think it's more important than immigration. I think it's more important than foreign trade or taxes or wars or anything like that. If you can control speech you will control politics because as good old uncle aristotle tells us speeches politics and politics is speech. Especially especially in a self-governing republic such as ours where we use words to persuade one another deliberate and set our our national policy at least in theory. And you've hit on it. There are two kinds of speech. Control that that are going on right now. There is the overt censorship. You mentioned tucker the nsa spying on tucker carlson. You've got government entities you've got corporate entities censoring even the duly elected sitting president of the united states on january seventh and january as a people who can get in trouble lose their jobs if they stay basic facts about nature men or not women that sort of thing but then there's also a pre censorship and i think this is even more insidious this is the way the left manipulates language to win debates before they ever even have to have the debates. I think this is why the left is so focused on the pronouns. Right now. I think that you can be compelled to refer to bruce jenner as she and her if the left can force you to deny the plane. Reality is right before your very eyes. They can get you to say anything..
