Mark Meadows and Sebastian Discuss the Russia Accusations
"People. Let me share a story that I think I've mentioned on the show, but just to illustrate what mark's talking about, how I knew it was all garbage. I was in the oval. It was just the president and I very early on in the administration. I was there on a purely national security issue. I believe it was to do with North Korea at the time if I remember well in the missile launches. And we're in the conversation. It stops. I'm waiting for the president to make a decision on something. Room goes quiet. And then out of nowhere, I think it was the day I think the reason it triggered him, I think it was the day that his son in law did oppress a shower, a little spray outside the west wing on the Russia accusations. Right. And so I think that must have triggered the president and out of nowhere, he says to me, he says they won't find anything. Now he's angry that they won't find anything because there is nothing. And he was so angry because he knew the whole thing was a fabrication Mark. Well, listen, I talk about this in a book, I've got coming out. He called me when I was a member of Congress. He said, he said, Mark, your wife has had more interactions with Russia than I have. I promise you that. There is nothing to be found. He says, go out there and fight. I still remember where I was who was seated at that particular time. He was on a trip abroad. And when you look at this, you start to see that the swamp continues to fight back even today. Even last week, trying to fight back going after president Trump and those that they never stop do that. No, they never stop. Why? Because they're threatened by him. And all he stands for, and it's not his power. It's the power of the people that are tuned in right now, the American

Joe Biden Is America's Greatest National Security Threat
"It has been twenty years yesterday. The anniversary of nine eleven which is a moment's a day in history that i think changed all of our lives instead assan. Maybe even a different trajectory in life and it was difficult to look back on twenty years and certainly it made it even more difficult with the way that we were led out of afghanistan over the last month by the biden administration. Our first question is for mark levin and sad. We'd like you dr. Sebastian gorka to be our one responder mark. What is our greatest national security threat today. joe biden. i'm not cleaning. I am not kidding. The people he is surrounded himself with a disaster. He's got a secretary of defense that helped create the isis caliphate. He's got a sector stay. Who comes out of the ivy league. Schools really doesn't know a damn thing same with his national security adviser so when you look among those people it's absolutely a disaster. The idea that we've american citizens in enemy territory the idea that we would leave afghan patriots. Who fought with us in enemy territory. The idea that twenty years after nine eleven the taliban will be stronger and bigger control the entire country about ghanistan with the backing of al-qaeda and china and russia iran sees this north korea sees is all of our enemies see this we are in dire dire

Biden slips into political quicksand amid Haitian migrant buildup
"Starting off the show. Tonight we have a discussion about joe biden. Apparently he's doing more deportations than trump specifically deporting more asylum seekers than trump did well. Yeah we don't have the other categories of deportations as the numbers that That we came across. And it's a shocking number. I don't know the entire number. But i have here the us Moved over six thousand. Haitian asylum-seekers from the border at del rio so that's just haitian asylum-seekers just recently with you know the whip's did see that. Oh i saw that very scary stuff. There was ice agents. I guess they're ice. Sported patrol agents. Scroll on horseback whipping people catalyst. Yeah like cadillac. Wrangling them with whips and hitting them with the long whip. It looked incredibly frightening and in and scary to be in that situation with a bunch of armed men on horses attacking people who are just trying to escape the hellish life of living in haiti. And do you think the biden voters expected this to happen because the people on the left like biden love to position themselves as the friend of the immigrants they acted like trump was the worst for immigration and right immigration. I mean right. When joe biden got elected like somebody. I know got a deportation letter. Just and they're telling him oh. It's been a lot worse recently under biden. They told him that his friends sorry like his friends. That like is also a legal immigrant. Types may know some other people like that well according to the same place that you're looking here. It's says twitter account. Aj plus they're citing cnbc saying that biden is using what's called title forty two to expel asylum-seekers without a right to a hearing so you know what asylum is right. Yeah when you leave somewhere that is you're gonna die there or they're gonna put you in prison for the rest of your life or thereafter you for for whatever reason and the numbers here are just shocking. According to cnbc under trump and remember trump had four full years. And we're not even through year number one biden four hundred and forty th over four hundred. Forty thousand people were Were expelled under this title. Forty two during the trump administration and six hundred ninety thousand have been expelled under the biden administration under title forty two so that's a tremendous level of increase because if if biden is able to keep up the same amount over the next three years. Yeah he'd be like twenty four hundred weight. It was six hundred ninety thousand right now so yeah that'd be well over two million people well so you know that is just absolutely horrifying because these people if they are indeed being prosecuted or persecuted. They're going to be sent back to likely their deaths or likely to a prison cell. Yeah it's probably worse for you if you try to leave and then they find out about that absolutely it is. Let's see there's other story here from cnbc biden. Administration appeals judges order. This is from less than a week ago to stop. Expelling migrants under trump era pandemic policies. So there was a judge who said they need to stop using title forty. Two and biden is appealing so this is yet another example of how joe biden is more like trumpy than the trump haters thought. That trump was like people hated trump for all these different reasons and biden has continued trump's policies and crank them up. Yeah my friend. Sent me this weird video of biden today. It was him when he was younger. You know he. He's always been in government office. So i don't know what his title was at the time but he was being interviewed. Probably a senator or something. Yeah and he was saying he was saying. What do people think. I care more about bosnia than haiti because it's white people in bosnia and it's you know black people in haiti and then he just went on and said well if haiti sank into the ocean. I wouldn't care just like that was his answer to that was like what is that supposed to mean. Well i'll tell you clear what it means. It means he has no empathy right to say that about another an entire group of people living somewhere on the planet to say they just if they just all died one day he would have no concern whatsoever for that and you juxtapose that against what he says while he's running for office which is to make himself seem like this all caring. Oh the democrats we care about people that's clearly. Bs tel aviv From penn and teller thought he was going to heal us all with his love. Is that what taylor said. Y- you read that on the show. It was numbered teller's lider new saying let pendulum but tell her was going along with pen from what i could see. So presumably teller didn't disagree otherwise he wouldn't have been in the photo op. Yeah just mixed them up. Sorry according to the story here. Cnbc biden administration appealing. A judge's order to stop using a trump era pandemic policy that allows for the rapid expulsion of migrants without giving them a chance to apply for asylum. So they're using covert as the excuse. The departments for his just cove it. That's why we had to have horseback riders with the because of it. It's just you covered. The department of justice filed an appeal of district. Judge emmet sullivan's ruling thursday bars. The federal government from expelling migrants under the public health law known as title. Forty two sullivan. The ruling to go into effect in fourteen days the appeal is the latest move by the bided administration to address the twenty year high surge of migrants from mexico and central america crossing the border illegally which remains a political flashpoint between republicans and progressive democrats title forty two is first introduced by donald trump in march of twenty twenty over concerns about the corona virus pandemic. It gave the government the power to turn back any migrant caught crossing the border illegally regardless of their country of origin to supposedly stop cove nineteen. So if you had managed to escape from north korea and you made it to the united states which is no easy task. Mind you. it's one thing to get here from haiti or guatemala. Or duress or something. It's a whole other story to get here from north korea. But if he'd managed to and they caught. You did it cover. Nineteen you gotta go back to north korea and you back to north korea where you would certainly either be put into a hellish prison labor camp and then of course all your family members have probably already been put into a prison labor camp. Because that's what they that's how they roll over north korea. If you try to escape or you do something bad. They punish your whole family for it. So you know you're going to prison and it's going to be like the worst possible prison labor camp experience basically on the planet right now if they don't just go right ahead and just summarily execute you but this quote from a man at the border a haitian man with two children. He says the. Us government

"Story right. Yeah it was. It was absolutely north korea. Doing these cyber attacks against sony. We're not saying it wasn't but we are saying that's a heck of a leap to make. And there were credible very credible people saying that. It absolutely wasn't north korea. So you know you. Just i just have to open. Open your third high. Maybe i don't know. I can't i don't know how you figure out what's true or not these days so we do know that with that being said with that wheelbarrow salt poured onto of All these stories. You hear from north korea about north korea. We do know that some of the crazier stories are true because as we said at the top. We have our friend. Kenji fujimoto who is able to confirm some and then we have some Some good firsthand reports here. So what's what's one crazy story all right. Well you are going to have to elaborate on this one for me. But i remember hearing a story about a rabbit breeding program. That didn't go very or they're there. It's a very large species of rabbit That i guess. North korea wanted to have a small population of them in order to breed them. Yes yes it's true uh-huh so in in a guest two thousand seven or so. Twelve giant rabbits were delivered to north korea. the breeder who sent them Found he thought they were going to be used to make a rabbit farm but he suspected that they were eaten by the top officials Berlin north korean embassy denied the allegations. But you can read some more about this in spiel on the online. The the german Journalism this is an article by david. Crossland and these rabbits guys are so big their biggest dogs they make about eight kilos of of me absolutely. Yeah that's huge but it may have been. I was thinking about this. It may have been despite the food shortage that they tried the rabbits. 'cause you should try before you like do this whole thing you wanna start a rabbit industry. Nobody wants nobody wants them but maybe date them and they didn't taste good. That's that's another. I could see that. I could see that but there are other crazy stories as well. Another story is that. There is a difference in size between north and south korean nationals. And it's thought to be due to to malnutrition than north koreans. Who were subjected to. Yeah you hear this. A lot from especially from americans so former presidential candidate john mccain talked about it in two thousand eight debate Christopher hitchens talked about it in an article in slate but some actual research instead of just rendering came from guy named professor daniel schwer From a university in seoul he said on average north. Korean men are about one and a half to three inches shorter than men in south korea. And the interesting thing is that due to the homogeneous nature of the population like genetically right We know that this doesn't come from a large variation or diversity in the gene pool.

This is one of the craziest stories. starvation yes been starvation in food. Insecurity in general is a huge issue north korea. It's a life threatening issue. That mean this is one of the big worries in your life. If you a north korean and like we can look at one of these things like during the famine of the nineteen ninety s. That's the thing you mentioned earlier. The arduous march through somewhere in this is a huge huge variants in number here but somewhere between two hundred and forty thousand and three point. Five million north koreans died of vacation or some form of hunger related issue right yes so maybe not just starvation directly but something exacerbated by starvation This yeah this number is Huge number two huge variance. As we said but i In a country that does keep adequate records or does allow people in more easily. The you still have a variance. You still have a variance because it's difficult to say the exact cause of death rain but then in countries But in the case of north korea this is even more difficult because there are very few official numbers kept in. That's been the case for fifty years. Yeah this leads us. Through something darker though yep cannibalism so there is confirmation of. Let's say isolated cases of y. You know there are also a lot of rumors about cannibalism rights of some of these isolated cases would p. stuff like a grandfather digging up his graves after they passed away and eating them because he had to the idea But there are also these rumors of large scale. Cannibalism that took place during certain times in north korea. Really we we don't know we can't prove it right because these statements come down often through defectors.
"north korea" Discussed on Stuff They Don't Want You To Know Audio
"The grandfather of kim jong un the current leader. Yes kim il sung is the is a god-like figure a kim. Il-sung is the leader of north korea. Which means that technically speaking. He is considered still the leader of north korea despite his death. There's your three generational rule there Yes and it's interesting. You say that we'll we'll see how that shakes out later. A kim il-sung is referred to as the great leader. The country's eternal president His birthday as a holiday. It's called the day of the son. He ruled north korea of for forty six years from nineteen forty eight until he passed away in nineteen ninety four During the time leading up to is passed away his son. Kim jong il who most of us will probably remember better He took leadership and it was during his rule that the country encountered some of those very tense difficult times including The famine known as the arduous march and nuclear standoffs But we have a new leader now and that is One of his sons. Right now. Kim jong hoon. He was selected by kim jong il over his other two others. That's i mean. Hey props man right yeah he. He is interesting because he has a He has a european schooling so he is someone who has been raised outside of the country. And i believe he went to school in switzerland. He is not necessarily the he he is not necessarily the air heir-apparent in the way with think these things normally go. He's not eldest son. No there were issues. Let's say with two the other candidates that would have been before him right. Yes so there. Are two other candidates. Was kim jong nam and kim jong tool And i'm mispronouncing i apologize. I don't speak korean very well. But the The brothers were the brothers who didn't make it Were passed over because one of them was caught trying to go to tokyo. Disneyland in two thousand. One and there was a huge embarrassment. One of the others was seen as effeminate by their father So here we are with kim jong hoon as The leader of the dprk or at least the face of it. And that's that's the important thing right. Despite the appearance of an absolute monarchy right The private version seems a little bit different. There are a lot of high raking senior officials that date back or did date back all the way to the days of kimmel song and seniority being so important in this society their words carry weight. Oh yeah and it's i feel like the system is kind of similar to hire advisers that let's say. The president listened to on a daily basis to make a high level decisions even if they're repeatedly wrong. Oh yeah but it's you know you you kind of have to go with the person that probably knows best right yeah And another another weird thing here So the stated aim of north korea is reunification. It's something that both create want in principle right and The problem there is that the the problem there is that the there's just a battle of population that occurs because both both want. The peninsula reunified in some manner or way because there were families that were split apart by this divisions thirty eighth parallel division But you know both countries wanna be in the driver's seat right and then when you look at the population you you mentioned that. The republic of korea has almost twice as many almost twice as many people So we would seem as though if you were just looking from that aspect alone you. They would kind of absorb north korea. Or at least that's the way it seems. And i'm pretty certain north korea wouldn't want that right We we are going to look at some of the questions about that too toward toward the end here now met you watched the interview right. I did yeah. I watched the interview to it. Wasn't it wasn't my favorite thing. I felt like you know what's what's the point where satire just becomes kind of racism. But i i'm a big fan of seth rogan James franco. I think they're funny guys. the guy who played kim jong un is is a really funny. Do but you have to wonder how much of that is again like propaganda but there was a great point interview Where they say that there is a false impression that this nation strives to give visitors and the outside world. Oh yeah the. I'm thinking of the scene in particular. Where james franco's character goes and finds that little food store in. It's just all fake food and it's all props essentially setups for him and other outsiders to think that there is plentiful food in the area yet. There's a great Read it ama from a north From a photographer who's traveling to north korea. Pretty often until he started being refused entry for taking photos. You shouldn't take and he said that There are few there's like two supermarkets and killing young or something but the only people really Shop at those are the elite of. We know that there is propaganda. Work in north korea. And you know it's its own industry as well so it's difficult to understand how much of what the government says is true how to parse the truth between the statements. But there's another point this makes us think of well. Yeah it's not just propaganda coming out of north korea of about how great it is. There's also a ton of propaganda aimed at you about how bad north korea is an all these terrible things and how everyone there is starving though there is some truth to it. A lot of this stuff are just exaggerations to kind of shape your view of the country as a whole right. There's a lot of an echo chamber going on a and nowhere was this more apparent then In the recent interview related news.

"Capitalistic american. Way you can still at the same time Not feel too bad about yourself and still focus on the the suffering in the world. And i think there's some way that in trying to build a better world in america it has ripple effects elsewhere. Sir like somma fan of rockets in space. It's it sounds perhaps counterintuitive but sending rockets space will help solve the north korea A a problem because it lets people dream and build cool stuff.

It's certain aspects of the united states and struggling with that. The one of the you know there's a bunch of technologies that are striving at this For example I don't know what your thoughts about cryptocurrencies. So like there's a idea that money could be a way to destroy or to challenge the the power centers of the world. So if you give if you take away the power from fiat currency and give it to this thing. That can't be controlled by government this cryptocurrency whereas bitcoin theme all those kinds of things. That's the way to get money into the hands of people to where the government can't take that money away but nour's done have alleged city. You know internet so we can do that with china. We can do it. A lot of african dictatorship countries right. Do think be cryptocurrency. Search fascinating technology right. I think this is amazing. Experiment when that power in our hands. I'm a huge out of kim believer but think northridge to behind you know the that's what is unique about nurse creates most of things that we talk about is now please different planet literally the common law that we have now pre couple. What about the kim jong kim jong. Yeah is he intentionally evil or is he. mind the mindlessly propagating an evil system created by his ancestors. What's your sense of the man. So we to kim yourself.

He grew up in the system to but kim dolan is very unique. This guy was educated. In switzerland in the heart of democracy he knew how human beings this should be treated as a child. He went when your child. Your brain is very susceptible but you change anybody like why the mall was solved as a changing young people's minds like that's every revolutionary. They do right.

And it's really important for north korea but just keep talking about it until there's until hopefully leads to at the highest levels of power re revolutionizing the systems in the world and then In china and north korea do you see not career being a potential instigator of a nuclear war. They were not starting curry war as long as they can do. Whatever they want right now. North korea's army not designed to fight the enemy did design to prevent their own people could the and the revolution with their own citizens. That is one point. Six million north korea with a tiny country the forest largest armies in the world so this country designed to five their own citizens and the army the fourth largest in the world is designed to basically fight its own people oppressor on people. That's what north korea mattress is about. Okay let me As you some aspects about north korea life who can described the song bond system of ascribed status used in north korea. Yeah so that's a very interesting right right now. There are a lot of people playing this ideology of like democratic socialism. Socialism comments water recall marxism-leninism. Ray they have all like this similar features where we give collective power to certain entity and they make the decision for the bigger right and north korea came. We'd idea the cumulus song he was the leninist marxist say i'm going to create the most equal society on human face so it was a communist north korea and then they came up with his homework.

"The men of jacket so when tried blow as much area could an end man was with like putting more like his jacket on right not taking up but sunshine came came when i give them a lot of worms and took his jacket it out and came out with our the theory. Let's give north korea as much love ones as giving them a lot of money. Whatever they wanted to give them who they know that we are not here to attack them and nor screw what they did raise the guy who did a sunshine policies. Korean names gimnasia when the nobody spice for that and skimmed on. You used the money to nuclear the nuclear weapons. So that's how they came the nukes. So i think that's the thing the loves those problems but there's got to be awareness. The hope is with a twenty for centuries you can directly. Speak to the people somehow when there's no internet when there's nothing like that it's hopeless. I think china. There's a hope that china is still connected. The i love your optimism. I have seen the the accurate dark side of china on the underground. I hope i think that's the thing people he know us right is oh how can you beat that bad. They asked me. Like i walking passing this young teenager man in nature the war with my sister. He's intestine coming up through his bat way and even in the moment what he wants to. Please give me food. He was hungry his intestines hanging out of his body. And he's asking for food. You know where. Humans demand randy die in north korea. Or they want is eating right and beepers say all nothing can be. That bad mood be praised as a hero. I haven't seen an asher through evil. Would you say that the evil comes from a tiny minority of people or is it permeate much. Larger parts of the population like if we look at sex trafficking. many people they is it. Ninety nine point nine percent of the people are are longing to do good in the world or is there is it Or do we all have the capacity for evil in certain kind of environment certain kinds of governmental structures inspire a large percent of the population to do bad things. I think humans are capable of anything. There is no exception. I there's any saying to bomb with the morality. I think in north korea. You can say initially that there's few guys in the top wanted the power and then doing this but eventually made society where people don't even know compassionate he'd another concept of we don't know the unit to feel bad for another human being in their suffering the fact that you know compassion is in your knowledge. That's why you do that. She men's need to learn is not anything bad about human nature just say humans are capable thing. we are the most adaptable species on the planet. That's why we create internet. I talking this way right norther anymore. Have done it because we are sawed up double. That is a good thing. And it's a bad thing. So in the adopters titian day or can be during the holocaust right those people they could have incapable of good to if they were exposed to different system. And that's why when people under a sm- evil that's what scares me ever is evil is a different thing is a completely different thing. And of course. I get your idea. We don't want to isolate one point. Three billion human beings in on earth. Why chinese but the thing is we are talking about this regime. Not the people i love. Chinese provides big chinese. I loved all about the country but the system does promote evil with an optimistic view. Actually because we can fix systems yeah It's harder to fix people so we fixed systems and the people are adoptable..

And like it's almost like brings you closer to other humans so it's this double edged sword that That the highest joys sometimes are catalyzed by suffering. And it's hard to know what to do with that. You see that was world war. Two the stories of soldiers that have suffered but some of the closest bonds of brotherhood of just pure love was experienced by them. And it's it sucks that our brains are like this you know the love requires hardship. I don't know why that is.

That is denied. So i mean many people say like love is auction but like then why do you live. Thank you relived love. And it doesn't have to be romantic love. It can be anything but finding love and it in any person in any subject. I think that's a goal. I think that's when people find meaning in something yet. We'll of romantic.
