"Or due process, private property rights, individual liberty. Except when it comes to his multi-million dollar estate and his ability to write and make a living and so forth. But when it comes to yours, they don't care. Private sector shut down, slam down during COVID. We have one hour of government shutdown. It'll be like the earth is collapsing. Why? Because that's where the ruling class is. That's where they get their power. The bureaucracy, the government, the politicians. They don't get it from you. Screw you. And so just like communist China, more and more. More and more, they're sanctioning speech. We can't have disinformation out there. Ladies and gentlemen, the entire Democrat party and its ideology is built on disinformation and misinformation. That is a lie. It's entire ideology is a lie. Joe Biden has built his career on life. And so it's not about disinformation or misinformation they care about. They're not the possessors of truth. They're not the people who want to speak, what is in fact a fact or the truth? They want to clear the playing field. This administration is more hostile to free speech than even the Obama administration. This administration is more hostile to free speech than any administration of modern American history. Since the Civil War, even more than Woodrow Wilson. And this administration does it with big tech, that's why they hate this guy. Elon Musk, they're afraid he might reveal something. Notice all the Democrat Talking Heads are on TV. They're in Congress. They're all saying the same thing. They're all piling on. Because this guy's a patriot. I don't agree with him on everything. I don't even know where he stands on everything. Who cares? Who cares? So now Musk is under scrutiny by Congress. Musk is under scrutiny by The White House. They're keeping an eye on him, although at the Department of Justice. Why? The same reason they're trying to put Trump in prison. Because these are people who will reveal things. And there's too many stupid Republicans and pseudo conservatives who don't get it. Centralized power. That's what Thomas Freeman was all excited about. Centralized power destroys representative government centralized power destroys. Prosperity and economic liberty centralized power destroys the individual human being. He believes he's some kind of mastermind. They all do. In the media. And in the Democrat part, they have no intention of joining the rest of us. When they accomplish what it is that they want to accomplish, no intention whatsoever. Now ladies and gentlemen, I've been warning you for a long time now. Those of you say, all right, let's move on. Let's move on. I understand. I hear it all the time. Let's move on. And what I'm trying to do is warn you. You can move on from Trump. You'll do what you want. Time will tell. But do you think they're going to play nice with desantis? You think they're going to leave him alone? You think they're going to treat him like Hakeem Jeffries? Another historic first, ladies and gentlemen. Hakeem Jeffries. Anytime there's a minority or a woman who's conservative, he historic first, on the conservative and Republican side, they are attacked. But when it's on the Democrat side, it's historic. Not a word about Hakeem Jeffries election denier. Not a word about his radical ideology. Not a word about his racist professor uncle, not a word, all kiss ass. It's a new generation of leaders. Hakeem describes himself as a practical progressive. That's oxymoronic. That would like Bill Barr saying, I have diarrhea, but I'm constipated. Right, mister producer? Well, why do I even know that doesn't work? But it's in the Atlantic, which is a failed and pathetic operation. And it's in there today. And they were so excited about it. It's written by some jerk named Mark lebovic. It was a mouthpiece. But the Democrat party in the power of

Marc Morano: The U.S. Has a Long History of 'Reset' Ideology

"Like me were a little bit slow to pick up on it because we thought, well, this has never happened. There's no precedent for this kind of thing. In our nation, and we can pretty much trust people even if they're on the different side of the political spectrum. They're not going to do anything crazy. But they did. They did. In fact, well, in the book, I go back to 1913 in the U.S., Woodrow Wilson's administration was when they first had this ideology, if you will, of the administrative state ruled by credentialed experts over all aspects of your life. And keep in mind, it wasn't done as an evil mastermind plot. This was presented as, you know, people aren't educated enough. We can actually have experts running most aspects of their lives and we can have an unelected bureaucrats literally in credentialed experts managing everything from nationalizing as well. The economy from agriculture to energy to food. All the way through. And this was seen as a positive benefit. Ebbed and flowed throughout the years. In the 1930s, Roosevelt had a kitchen cabinet adviser Stuart Chase, who actually proposed an early version of this great reset, literally nationalization of energy, stopping your government control of news and propaganda, his words. And he actually said, why should the Soviets have all the fun? And this was, of course, during the time when the soap Joseph Stalin was seen as this great reformer and Russia and all the progressives were very excited. So you fast forward and what happened is if you get into the 70s well, particularly the 90s and the last decade and the previous decade, you have a lot of these same progressives now replacing Russia with China. So you have Justin Trudeau saying China is he has basic admiration for their dictatorship. You have Tom Friedman of The New York Times decades ago saying that China's doing it right and that they don't have the messiness of democracy. The UN climate chief praising China.

You have Tom Friedman of The New York Times decades ago saying that China's doing it right and that they don't have the messiness of democracy. The UN climate chief praising China. Obama administration officials Biden all loving this. They're one. Let's be clear. Let's be clear. Even people I admire often foolishly kind of lean in this direction. We saw this with George W. Bush and the Patriot Act, you referred to it a moment ago. Gigantic overreach really believing, but we need to do it. It's a national security. The interest of national security. We've got to do it. It's important. Even the other day, Trump making an offhanded crack about, you know, they don't have, they don't have drug addiction, I don't know, Singapore or in China. They don't have that. They don't know what that is. Yeah, the reason they don't know what that is is because they will murder you if you get out of line. And so there's always been this temptation, but we've seen it on the left so dramatically in the last two years. So my question, my first question along these lines is, do you, do you think, how do you suppose this happened in early 2020? In other words, did certain people convene secretly and say, hey, wait a minute. Here's an opportunity because it took most people by surprise. Most people, as I said over and over, they've just never seen anything like it. So to see it happening, it took time for many of us to really understand how horrifying it actually was. Yes, it did. And it was. And in fact, I think great pains in the book to go through, particularly January, February of 2020 and how we locked ourselves into this. And it goes back to China. So by just quick, previous point, though, is China once all these intellectuals praised it. Once they saw the COVID lockdowns and they saw they could literally play China's dictatorship immediately, they didn't want to relinquish it. And it was more awesome. I don't even praise..

What's Changed in the American Diet? Vinnie Tortorich Explains

"Go back to diet now. What changed in diet? We got away from meeting red meat, we got away from eating fish. We got away from eating fresh red meat and vegetables. And we started getting into processed foods, we got all the sugars and grains that come with that. We made processed foods, grains are very cheap. I always use Taco Bell as an example when I was in college, you got two for 99 cents. And in today's world, you can still get two for 99 cents or less. So everything else has been inflated except Taco Bell. So how do they magically do this? Every fast food restaurant can get sugars and grains is subsidized by the government. It's almost free to give to people. We have these school programs for kids where we're telling them that pizza is a vegetable. And I'm not making that's not being funny. That was done during the Obama administration. We tell people that chocolate milk is good for these kids. Strawberry flavored milk is good. They're adding sugar to milk. We're putting sugars and grains everywhere at dinner.

LGBT Community Is Using Colorado Disaster to Attack Conservatives

"Is conservatives as they are folks, but when you come to our pages and there has been some sort of a national tragedy, or somebody has died, I don't care if the Republican or Democrat gay or straight, you're going to treat him with a little respect. And that's what we do on this radio show. I know some people get all upset about them, but you know what, I don't care. It's the right thing to do. It kills me every time I see one of these, I'll give you an example. Somebody dies and they're a Democrat. Well, I didn't agree with her policies, but thoughts and prayers. You know what? Why don't you just offer your thoughts and prayers? Why do you have to let everybody know that you disagreed with the person they're dead? I mean, come on. So this all goes back to rom Emmanuel, never let a crisis go to waste. The Godfather of the Obama administration. And the idea and really the MO here is that whenever something bad has happened, look for a way to take advantage of that to advance your agenda. And that's exactly what these radical LGBT folks are doing. They're now accusing any of you who oppose any of you who oppose same sex marriage. Anybody who has a problem with drag queens, you're responsible for what happened in Colorado Springs. That's what they're saying on social media. And I'm not buying it. I think that is monstrous that is evil that is demonic.

Jesus told us apostles go to the door knocking on preach the gospel if they turn on you. Dust your shoulders off. And walk to the next place. Don't waste your time with idiots. Who sit there and cry by Trump. He's a racist, just walked past that person. If auntie is like, Donald Trump is raised, don't even talk to auntie. Auntie is lost. Go to your cousin.

We don't want to be a wave. We want to be a red Armageddon. We want to whip them so bad though, the world ends. That's how bad we want it to be. It's world changing. This is over. This is the Guinness Book of World Records. We don't want to just be mediocre. We don't want to just be status quo. We don't want to just run through them like they did under the Obama administration. When he lost, I don't know how many seats in the House and Senate. I want you to understand that Obama had a greater approval rating than Biden could ever dream of and he still lost the House and the Senate. By a ton of people to imagine what's going to happen to Joe Biden, but we need to put the nail in the coffin and make sure it happens, and there's no chance for them to come up for air, we need to outvote them, outperform them, out preach them, and we need to change this country.

Kris Kobach: Biden Admin Likes to Grasp for Power

"This is why it so vitally important that you win this race because a lot of folks out there don't understand how devious the Biden administration and these cultures jihadist as I call them, how devious they can be to go in and using lunch funds as a method to advance this agenda and of course you remember back what was it the last days of the bite of the Obama administration when they sent up the threatening letters to the school boards, knowing it was non binding, telling them that they had to embrace the transgender movement. So this has been going on for a very long time in America. It absolutely has. And there is this tendency in the Biden administration, less so in the Obama situation, they did it too, but the Biden administration just seems to be grasping for every lever of power not looking at the constitution, just thinking of how they can coerce states to do what the Biden administration wants them to do. And using the spending power in a way to regulate things that the federal government has no authority to regulate trans policies. The founding fathers, the word education doesn't even occur in the U.S. Constitution, much less trans policies in education and the idea that the federal government can regulate this would have our founding fathers rolling over in their graves and the way to stop it is to stop it in court and that's what I would intend to do as attorney general.

"A cut I need your opinion on first. There is a scumbag called David ignatius. He's a quote unquote journalist Jennifer. The person who illegally revealed the name of Mike Flynn as being one of those unmasked by the Obama administration. And talking about the war in Ukraine on MSNBC, he had something to say about Joe Biden, and it just kind of illustrates the ironclad Kevlar in case the bubble that the elite lives in. Cut 13. General milley, who's the chairman of the judge, she's a staff who says quoting a Chinese leader. We are crossing the river stepping from stone to stone, meaning it's not that unstable. I see each step. We're not just sure what's there. And I think it's a time when I'm glad that president Biden and people around him are trying to think very carefully. So this guy's glad that Biden's in charge. I mean, does anybody who's not mentally incompetent actually believe that? He is right about one thing. It is unstable, but he's wrong about the fact that Joe Biden is, oh, thank God. He's there. He's a reason that things are so unstable. You know, I had Nikki Haley on our program yesterday on the show, a former ambassador to the UN, and she just like everyone else with just a sense of just a small sense of sanity, says if president Trump were in office, this would have never happened. The instability that we see around the world is happening because Joe Biden is a leading the strongest country on the planet. And he's running us into the ground, and I hate saying that to you, said, because I want to be optimistic. I don't care who's sitting in The White House. I do, obviously, we do this for a living. But I root for our country above anything else. And the fact that we are so incredibly weak right now, and that we've got this guy who, you know, he sniffs girls heads and mumbles around and shuffles all over the place and doesn't look like he knows if it's Wednesday or if it's, you know, last April. The guy is all over the place and it is creating real problems. This is why Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine.

And I'm delighted that he can join us right now. He is the host of Justin news, not noise. John Solomon, welcome to America first. Good to be with you, Sam. So tell us what we learned yesterday in that court in Virginia in Alexandria as the trial of the Russian national. It's funny how the mainstream media says America based researcher. They don't tell you where he's from, but the fact that he's actually a Russian is so telling. So tell us about this truly, truly historic bombshell. Yeah, and let's keep in mind he's not only a Russian. He's a Russian that the FBI had a counterintelligence probe open up because they thought he was trying to buy secrets from the Obama administration. So he's a Russian citizen who the FBI had deep suspicions might be tied to Russian intelligence. And despite that, they bring danchenko on to the payroll after they already had Christopher Steele on the payroll. Two foreigners, they're using to build a case against an American president, both of them feeding what turned out to be disinformation to them. So the timetable is so important.

The Democratic Party Has Been Corrupted by China for Decades

"Just talking about the Chinese and how it seems obvious, James, that they had the goods on the Obama administration that they had leverage. And that our officials have been corrupted and that the evil communists in China were using that leverage. Yeah, some of the actions of the Obama administration and the Biden administration are hard to explain in any way. When you look at the trade deals that they negotiate it and how they benefited China and harm our nation, just across the board, militarily. And by the way, this goes back to the Clinton administration. Back during his time, there was a giant scandal many people forget it. It's called China gate in which a bunch of Chinese businesses and individuals were donating large sums of cash to the Democratic National Committee. And the worst in all this talk about the implications of something horrible. There was a company there is a company called Lara that was paying China, Chinese companies to launch their satellites into space, and what would happen is the Chinese rockets at the time were highly unreliable. So loral gave them the technology to make these rockets reliable. They diagnosed the problem and said, hey, fix this, this and this. And you're not going to be blowing up our satellites. Well, the problem is those same rockets use that same technology used to deliver satellites is also used to deliver into continental ballistic nuclear missiles. So what they did is effectively gave China a massive military edge, and they were under investigation. And Bill Clinton stepped in and basically killed the whole investigation after them around made a donation. I forget the exact amount. I think it was in excess of $600,000 to the Democratic National Committee.

It's absolutely mind-blowing. And even you just now said, you don't think anything's going to come with this. You don't think if the Republicans gain power in the House in November or in next year, you don't think that they're going to do anything about this? I think they will, but their power is limited. Hey, the Republicans held Eric holder in contempt of Congress. But nothing happened to him because the Obama administration was running the Department of Justice and only they can seek that indictment and go after him and say, hey, listen, you know, we're going to jail you here for breaking the law. Until and unless you get a Republicans who are principled and own The White House when I say own it, I mean occupy it as elected representatives and they're actually carrying out with a promise to do. Nothing can really come up this. Unless people rise up and the people in politics have to pay an electoral price for basically ripping us off and ripping off the world and sullying our nation.

How the US Government Went Wrong for 6 Years With Rebekah Koffler

"You said something very interesting before we started the show Rebecca. You talked about, well, juxtaposition, let's say, between the current threat environment and what's happening in Europe and what the federal government and Congress have been doing for the next 6 years. Those two, the last 6 years, those two things don't really match, explain why. What have we been doing that doesn't really help us today? Well, instead of really paying attention to the Russian thread or China, North Korea, the corrupt intelligence officials within the Obama administration, when current president was actually a vice president, they misdirected intelligence resources to these incredible multiple investigations, investigating the phony collusion that they themselves concocted in order to evade former president Trump from The White House. So they were focusing for four years on an aspect of Russia that didn't exist. The Russian collusion hoax. Exactly. Instead of discussing or examining why did he invade Crimea in 2000 under the Obama administration? Right. And what are his capabilities? What are his intentions? Yes. You know you worked in that environment. You know, you can focus there and you see it and tracking your intelligence targets. You read your raw intelligence, which is very, very lengthy from multiple sources you get your satellite pictures, you get your communication into sets. And then your boss runs in and said, oops, you know, we need to know what the Russians have on Trump. And you can tell them all you want that they got now they're not Trump, but you know. But a Russian asset, the brookings institution. He'll make staff up and give it to Christopher Steele, who gets money from the Clinton campaign and then the FBI gives him cover as a confidential informant and after what 20 months and I think it was 30 million spent by Robert Mueller, nothing zero. And that's a lot of money that could have been spent analyzing, I don't know, Russian intentions in Crimea.

'Fallout' Author John Solomon Unpacks the Durham Probe

"We have a massive story this week that hasn't been given the requisite coverage anywhere really. But the man who knows the most is the author of the seminal work fallout nuclear bribes Russian spies and the Washington lies that enrich the Clinton and Biden dynasties. He's one of the few real investigative journalists out there. He's the founder, the editor in chief of Justin news dot com. Welcome back to America first. John Solomon. Yes, good to be with you, Sam. So I just want to retread this issue because it is such a massive blockbuster in the message or to just rely upon my explication you've been covering this for 5 years now. Why is the Durham filing or the unsealing regarding Igor danchenko the Russian national who is working at the brookings institution just down the road? Why is it such a big deal? And why does it point the finger to corruption at the FBI, John? Yeah, that's an inch shows bad faith by the FBI. Let's just think about the facts that are now in evidence. The FBI knew starting in the fall of 2008 that Igor danchenko had ties to Russian intelligence agencies. They also knew he had tried to make offers of cash payments to incoming Obama administration officials to pay them cash if they would leak him secret. So he had all the hallmarks of spying of classified secret stealing. They dropped the investigation on him mistakenly thinking he had left the United States when he stayed here. That suggests the level of incompetence by the FBI. But then in 2017, when they find out he is the primary source for Christopher Steele's now completely discredited. And by the way, by the time they started to interview him in early 17, they already knew the dossier was discredited. He lies to them. He lies, I've never had contact with the Russian intelligence services. We know you're lying, okay, all right, I'm lying. And then literally that's how the conversation goes. And then he disowns most of the things that are attributed to him in the dossier. After all that happened. After all of that knowledge, the FBI decides in March of 2017 to hire him as a confidential informant to continue to pursue Russia collusion allegations against Donald Trump.

"Who is Lee Smith and how did you arrive at where you are today? So give those who are unfamiliar with you a little bit of the backstory. Yeah, well, you know, I mean, what that book is about the strong horse. I was raised in New York. I was living in New York at the time of 9 11, and I wanted to know what had happened to my hometown. And so I moved first to Egypt, then I moved to Lebanon, spent some time in Israel. Jerusalem in particular, beautiful, wonderful city Jerusalem. And Beirut tragically has been a beautiful city in the past, but now it's now it's in deep trouble and very deep waters. And Cairo has many problems of its own, but also some great important interesting people. I think that one of the most important things I think that the stuff that we saw on 9 11, and I think for both of us, our study of the Middle East and our study of these of these very ugly regimes, it's sad, but helpful. And so far as I think we learn to by looking at these regimes, we learn to recognize problems as they've arisen here in the United States. Both with the Obama administration, then with the attacks on Donald Trump, the national security apparatus designed to protect American citizens, weaponized and turned against American citizens, Donald Trump, Donald Trump aides like yourself, like Michael Flynn, and as we see Peter Navarro, Steve Bannon, and of course Trump supporters. That's what we saw with Joe Biden's very peculiar and dark speech.

Guy Reschenthaler: Our Goal to Democratize Iraq Was Worthwhile

"I want to go back to something you said because, again, you talk about the destabilizing foreign policy. I think a lot of that goes right back to the Bush administration as well. When instead of taking care of business completely in Afghanistan, we diverted our attention to Iraq, which now is a dumpster fire, and this idea that we were going to bring democracy to the Middle East, which is a noble concept, but I got to be honest with you. If the people don't want it, we're not going to be able to force it on them. So I still, look, was the Iraq War mishandled by the top military brass in the Bush administration and subsequently the Obama administration. Yes, absolutely. I still think, though, that our goal of democratizing Iraq was worthwhile. And it was doable. Iraq was a very modern country. I've practiced law in the Iraqi court system. They have the most, they had, and at the time, the most western legal system in the Middle East, second only to Israel. And remember, it took us decades to democratize South Korea. And now they're one of our staunchest allies. It took about 40 some years to democratize Korea. We are still based in Germany. We're still based in Japan. So it takes decades to get these governments on their feet and within the family of democratic nations. Unfortunately, the Bush administration handed off power far too quickly, which then gave power to the Shia majority in Iraq, which by proxy gate power to Iran. Had we just been there and tried to have a government formed, it could have been a totally different picture in the Arab Spring that we saw under Obama could have looked totally different. We had a democratization rather than a return to extremism. That we saw.

When Will Conservatives Say 'Enough Is Enough?'

"But look, over the years, what we've been going all the way back to the Obama administration, conservatives have been persecuted by the government. Persecuted. Billy Graham, the pro life organizations, the Tea Party. How many times were we audited? How many times were we investigated over the years? We've seen in recent years, we've seen the police coming under attack. We've seen our cities burn to the ground. We've seen our businesses looted. Pillaged and plundered. And at what point do we say enough is enough? Because there have been plenty of justified reasons for conservatives to get out there and march in the streets. You've got the Democrats out there talking about Civil War all the time in the blaming us. We're not the ones talking about Civil War. It's the Democrats. So we're going to play some audio a little bit later on in the show about that. But do you agree with Lindsey Graham that the line in the sand is when they take the president into custody? And when that happens, when they decide to prosecute Trump, the gloves come off and the conservatives are out in the streets. Do you believe that to be the case? Do you believe that there would be riots in the streets?

"Just because there was Russia collusion, which was a lie that the Obama administration used the FBI and the Intel agencies, just because they lied on a foil, affidavit to get a foia war, just because the entire dossier was a lie. It was used by the FBI. Trump is trying to position himself as a victim. To the victim here, of course, is the FBI. How dare you? How dare you degrade the FBI? Everybody is equal before the law, don't you know? Yes, everybody is equal before the law. Who does Trump think he is? Go ahead, maggot. Sealed. It was not an alloyed good news for Trump as a lot of people around him had been intimating, if not good news, at least neutral news. The statutes there are problematic for him. And so I suspect that the warrant the affidavit would have similar issues. Yes, the statutes are problematic. You see, we at the near times were well familiar. With the constitution of the United States, even though it was written, by white slave owners, and adopted by white slave owners, we embrace it. Especially the part about a free press, you see. And we abuse our powers, propaganda. I maggot maggot heavin being a demigod. First and foremost, and of course, they mentioned three statutes there. So those statutes are obviously problematic. The espionage act. Don't you know that Donald Trump violated the espionage act? It's plain as day. Forget about article two section one, the first sentence. We don't worry about that at the. New York Times, that was written by a slave owner. While presumably so was the First Amendment. No, no, no, you don't understand. We pick and choose here at thee. New York Times the Fourth Amendment only matters if it applies to terrorists. Mass murders and Democrats. That's all. Person applied to Donald Trump, he is an existential threat to society. And so are the white supremacists, racists, and bigots who voted for him. Half the country. We here at The New York Times, pushing the 1619 Project, pushing Stalin, pushing the third ride pushing Castro hiring anti semites, yes, we here at The New York Times. We know how to re jigger and reorganize society here. Me a maggot Hardman. Hear it. The New York Times for a reason. I'm so special, I'm so witty. Don't mind my affectation. Don't let that confuse you. But then there's Chris Wallace on CNN today. See, CNN is like a dung pile that attracts flies. John Berman. So here again we have phony journalists interviewing phony journalists. Chris Wallace, I mean, working at CNN and MSNBC, that's like the final step before you appear on. Sonograms and airport radar. Which will be where stelter helter helped her stelter will be going. Let's listen to this intriguing discussion, shall we? By the way, has Chris Wallace had a jaw implant yet, mister producer.

"We can use the Obama administration as kind of proxy and Republicans really stymied Obama's judicial nominations effort And that definitely could happen with spiders as well So it's been something that we've been talking about for Biden's entire administration of how much could they get done in these two years before midterms threaten Democrats on a majority I didn't understand what Graham was really saying because look as you say the Republicans president Obama's nominations I didn't understand what he was complaining about Right Well I mean this confirmation process for Jackson definitely brought up a lot of the woes of the conservation process in the past And it seems like maybe in the heat of the moment this comment was brought up An interesting thing to note though is that Graham has been pretty supportive of Biden's judicial nominees In committee and on the Senate floor So whether or not that would change if Republicans are in control would be a really interesting change or Graham in terms of the fact that he is supported a lot of the nominees while Democrats have been controlling us on it As you know he supported judge Jackson for her nomination to the D.C. circuit I have no idea what happened to make him so bitter In the meantime This is the first time I've seen grandma's questions all year He doesn't come to digital nominations hearings So he typically votes by proxy when the meetings come around And so it was pretty weird for the first time to see him in committee questioning a nominee and it happens to be a Supreme Court nominee a year into Biden's administration and it just is a huge contrast to the voting patterns that I've seen So it was really interesting and I'm just as curious about the motives of everybody else Thanks Madison That's Bloomberg law reporter Madison Alder Coming up next why the jury failed to convict any of the defendants in the plot to kidnap governor Gretchen Whitmer This is Bloomberg.

"Under the Obama administration where many people in mainstream media kind of bought into this idea that we had reached the post ratio mountain Ted we hadn't solved racial inequality but certainly we had banished the type of racism of old America And then Donald Trump wins And Donald Trump wins on a campaign of white grievance And saying things that hadn't been appropriate and polite company for some time And so I think a lot of gatekeepers and mainstream media understood something is happening that we didn't think was happening And there's some smart folks who want to excavate that And I think that they were open because of that So I think that played a big part in it You know when I first started in journalism in 2003 most newsrooms had a race beat And then they all went away And then newsrooms because of what was happening politically began to create these beats again So I think it was really the kind of cultural schizophrenia that was happening in our country that was not surprising to people of color but seem to be very surprising to newsroom gatekeepers that created these types of opportunities Since it has come out 1619 is almost become like a buzzword for people who either attach all their hopes or fears to And I think it's easy to lose sight of what is actually in the project what it actually says So we want to actually dig into some of the arguments that are making in the book and the expanded version of 1619 that's in the book And I think one of them that's interesting to us instead of plantation use the term labor camp Can you describe why that was important and why language in general in terms of the way we describe things particularly from the past are important Yes so I'll start with the second part of that question Language is important particularly in the past but of course in all contexts because it can either clarify or obscure It can either justify or explicate right And one of the things I did early on was I created a guide on language So the language would be uniform And that said we won't call human being slaves We're not going to use the euphemism of a plantation We don't use blacks as a noun And that language was important because when you call someone a slave you're saying that's who that person was But slavery was a condition And of course the entire reason people were defined as slaves was to strip them of their humanity to treat them as something that could be owned.

"Look back at some of our favorite conversations from the past year one in which retail traders emerged as a market moving force That was a big theme of the year It really was a big theme on our next guest is on the board of corporate giants like Nike McDonald's and The New York Times he's also chairman co CEO and chief investment officer of Ariel investments We're talking about John Rogers He joined me in Bloomberg news New York deputy bureau chief chetia Brantley back in July and expressed concern that novice traders particularly from communities of color are not yet fully equipped for long-term investing success I do worry about it The good sign is we're getting more and more African American investors and places like Charles Schwab have really democratized the stock market and it's very cheap to get involved and you can do everything online and not be intimidating by traditional white shoe investment firms So all that is really really good But the downside is often this happened when the Internet bubble at the turn of the century we get pulled in the market gets sucked into the latest themes too often because we haven't been as engaged in the stock market as white Americans So I do worry that we're getting pulled into some of these risky areas and exactly the wrong time And we know the way that we came to this country the traditions that we had to fight against the Jim Crow and all the challenge that we faced in our community put us behind the 8 ball when it came to investing and getting comfortable in the markets And so again whenever we get pulled in I do worry sometimes it's late in the game Well let's talk about financial literacy and how that plays into alleviating your concerns Well you know I think we need to continue to do more and more We have just scratched the surface when it comes to financial literacy During the Obama administration I had the privilege to be able to be able to share his counsel and financial capability for young Americans And we talked to the president about how can we get more financial institutions to partner with urban public schools to teach kids about the market Give the kids real dollars to invest in real stocks Be role models for young people of color to get engaged in the financial services sector as career choices So I think we have a long way to go because this is so critically important that African Americans get exposed to the markets at young ages We know the wealth gap in this country has gotten larger and larger We've fallen further behind because of the historical discrimination that we face in this country So the way to catch up is to get folks involved in the best parts of the economy where the wealth and jobs are being created today and learning about the magic of compound interest and getting comfortable in equities because we all know when you get a job now you have to be your own money manager with your 401k plan So financial literacy is more important in this country than ever John how do we get there The reason I ask is I actually came across a Federal Reserve paper that was done by a researcher about ten years ago I think talking about the importance of financial literacy I think about someone like Warren Buffett who talked about compound interest like knew it when he was at a young age We have been talking about the importance of financial literacy across society for a long time And I wonder how do we really move the needle on this Because I agree that this is something that unlocks the financial is the key that unlocks financial wealth for more Americans and certainly for black Americans I think one of the things I talk about all the time my father bought stocks for me every birthday and every Christmas after I was 12 years old And I got exposed to the markets at an early age and loved it You know there's a program in Europe New York City rise that is doing that with young people getting kids into 5 29 programs that write in kindergarten and on the way And the aerial community academy that's now 25 years old we give kids real money to invest in real stocks and they get to see the money grow from kindergarten through 8th grade And I think that's just so important You got to get exposure get your hands a little dirty with the markets learning how to do the research seeing the inevitable ups and downs but seeing how markets steadily climb even after you have some ups and downs we come back from downturns and bounce higher So I can't overemphasize the importance for corporate America the work of public schools get public schools to have robust financial literacy programs and get volunteers from the corporate community to get in there and talk with kids about how to do the research And the magic of our capitalist democracy that really builds wealth over time Just a quick follow Should it be mandatory in schools I personally think that kids should be starting in kindergarten learning about financial literacy Make it part of the curriculum Do you think that's what needs to be done I think that's really critical I think that's exactly right I know local communities make the decisions on their own local schools It's hard to dictate that federally But I always joke with my friend Arne Duncan the former secretary of education that the French class is maybe not as important as that financial literacy class I think I've been to France 5 times in my life and I spent 5 years studying French Financial literacy is so important to our economy and so important to our country and all communities Well there have just been so many efforts if you will announced post George Floyd your organization has launched project black Can you just tell our audience a little bit more about that And what has been the response so far Well you know our co CEO created project black in partnership with JPMorgan Chase and Jamie Dimon melody hobson had this vision this idea that we would create a fun that would build stronger black owned and LatinX businesses and get them to scale We feel like too many of the programs are all about helping small micro businesses get small loans to build their businesses We

Killers the secret war against terrorists It was supposed to be out in November but because of COVID and the supply chain we couldn't get a printed Drove me nuts So telling Nicholas beyond me it's all classified information about how the United States has tracked these people down You're going to love this book because you've read all the other killing books I think this is my best reporting that I've ever done Because we were able to get this stuff that nobody else has ever seen on a micro level on how the Bush administration the Obama administration the Trump administration and some of the Biden Track these people down and how it unfolds and Americans know nothing about it because it's all top secret So that's killing The Killers And then I have another book going to come out in late October early November I can't tell you the title to somebody who put it off in how that goes But it's a totally different killing book So we got a lot of product coming out in 2022 and thank you for asking me about it Well we have to wait until May though God I thought we were going to have to I'm going to send you a galley though Okay The three weeks you'll get Okay Well that will satisfy me a little bit Now president Trump is going to run again It's almost a mortal lock But what do you base that on when you say that publicly Because I mean I know the guys was any reporter knows him And I know what he's doing now He's raising money He's got a political action committee He's setting up endorsements for other Republicans He's definitely going to run Now other things can happen because he can't announce until January 2023 because of campaign finance laws So you have to wait for a year and a few weeks But Hillary Clinton wants to run again And he's starting to do the preparations as well Very few people know that But he is he senses his weakness in Biden Harris and wants to run again So it might be the next time around Trump versus Hillary again That's what I want And look I've only interviewed her a couple times I think you probably have She would be the best even with all the baggage She's smarter than these people Can she be a bit likeable There's no shot that I see Or do you see somebody out there in the Democrat side Who is it if Trump runs that could contest with him Bill Who is it Based upon what we see happening now and I think is going to be relatively what we see going into 23 or so We could get worse Yeah The economy is really on the edge And Joe Biden with all due respect does not seem to be able to handle a job And I can't imagine even the most Ardent Democrats believing that this is an effective president You can just run everything down And it is a disaster on all fronts He gave a decent speech today I thought about the vaccines and urging people to get them I don't have any quibble with it but then he started to take questions and was incomprehensible What are you talking about That's when it happened But who is their savior then Is it misses Obama Yeah if you want to go outside the box a non politicians like Trump certainly Michelle Obama is an engaging person but I have not seen any inkling that she wants to take the horror and that's what it is The horror of running for president of the United States I agree with you Parting question the Oreo books whatever number we're up to now I guess it's a little bit too late to get him for Christmas or is it No no no no We'll get him to you Go to Bill O'Reilly dot com We actually have discounts on all ten killing books And they have sold 19 million copies done And you know what You never buy one because I give them to you It would be 19 million 10 copies Yeah well I'll work on that I'll spring for it of every acquaintance I have every frame that I have Hey Bill thank you particularly I know how busy you are right now And again if president Trump stays on this course I think this is wonderful for him and the country Well listen it takes discipline He doesn't have me around all the time And we'll see I want you to have very Merry Christmas time YouTube and I want all label hand and listeners to know that you are a first class broadcaster and an honest man Thank you Bill Thank you very much for watching I'll see you All right There is Bill O'Reilly to kick it off tonight There's a lot to chew on there Give me a reaction to anything he said 8 6 6 50 Jimbo 8 6 6 50 Jimbo Are you okay with this new Trump I certainly am And I'm not saying new like it's going to help more disciplines He said and he's got the fastball All he needs to do is to curtail some of the things that might interrupt And you heard what O'Reilly said about Hillary I agree She's their best candidate even with all the baggage And come on now Don't you want Trump Hillary to lock her up lock her up Come on you know you want that I think that's where this is going 8 8 8 6 6 50 Jimbo that gets you to me Down to your Dano sitting in for Jimbo hatting Cancer so many lives are touched by cancer In.

"Permission from the Obama administration to go ahead and hire these people They hired some sort of middle managed relief companies that recruit from intelligence And then they hired some people It would appear directly from U.S. intelligence Agency There's nothing wrong with that That's perfectly legal But these people after they were initially hired to protect the computer systems of these foreign countries some in some cases they were asked to conduct surveillance on other people And on innocent civilians political activists journalists critics of the government and in some cases they were asked to hack into the phones and snoop on American citizens which is against the law And you say this created new vulnerabilities for the U.S. Yeah so now this is a fairly new problem the fact that the United States intelligence services have so many people who are trained in surveillance spend in protecting Americans from hacking and sometimes scooping in on our phone conversations and our computer exchanges Those skills when they become available in the private sector the United States government does not always know where those skills are going And there is an opportunity for foreign governments to hire people of them very large sums of money and then turn them into doing things that are at the very least particularly questionable and in some cases legally Bobby it seems like it's a good time to be a hacker Who is hiring them Well actually every government in the world that has computer systems that are vulnerable to being attacked by hackers will also want to recruit hackers to protect their own systems because the principle is that who better to protect against hacking than another hack or somebody who knows all the vulnerabilities of the system and can protect you But the trouble is that they will always be some governments and I'm thinking about Iran and Russia North Korea and a few others that will use the hackers that they hire to hack into the computer systems of foreign governments quite often to hack or try to hack American government systems that have been any number of reports of attempts thousands upon thousands upon thousands of attempts to hack into very sensitive American infrastructure power plants for instance nuclear installations And then in the private sector you'll remember there was that famous case a few years ago when sunny movies were hacked into by the North Koreans This is a whole new area new tracks are being invented practically every day because this expertise is now widely available in the mine Indeed we are at a time when the public is seeing and being affected by cyberattacks like never before You mention a whole bunch of entities at risk but who do you think has the greatest vulnerability right now Governments or these private entities Governments are the ones that are being attacked the most So the United States government has attacked practically every second of every day by hackers from somewhere on the other And some of those hackers are from within the United States But governments also have large budgets and large numbers of people working to deflect these attacks or protect us against these attacks So there is almost if you like a balance of threat and protection there But private companies don't always have the resources to protect themselves in the same way The big corporations you assume you hope spend sufficient amounts of that budget in protecting their data systems But even then every now and again we'll hear about a huge factor has resulted in credit card information being exposed or stolen even from big corporations And so you can imagine that that's what's happening with large corporations imagine how much more vulnerable a small businesses we are speaking with Bloomberg opinion right or Bobby dosh While the attacks had happened in the last decade led to more demand for U.S. tech You write that D.C. was late to hear a can of worms being opened Why did you use that analogy of a can of worms Well because this was so new we didn't realize that this was going on In the drive to protect American systems from being hacked that U.S. intelligence agencies hired and trained large numbers of people We may never know exactly how many people but we are certainly talking about tens of thousands of individuals who are hired and either because they already had the skills or higher than trained to acquire the skills necessary to protect the United States Now when American soldiers retire they can go and work in the private sector There's nothing illegal about it And there's not a lot of potential except in Hollywood movies for them to do bad things with the things they learned when they were in the military But with cyber specialists the opportunities to break the law exist and the temptations to do so are quite great I mean some of these governments that have been hiring hiring American hackers for hire are paying enormous salaries to very very young people running into a hundred sometimes more than a $1 million One of the people I spoke with was a former intelligence operator who was very well aware of the trends in the sector he described it as the kind of money that allows people to buy a Ferrari in their first year Now those temptations plus the access to international networks and access to tools that were developed in the United States can give a foreign government be enormous advantage And as well as the ability to snoop into what's going on in the United States even governments that we would think of as being our ally Have that ability So the United States government didn't see this one coming It is trying to catch up now it has but you the Justice Department has pursued cases against individuals who were emerging in this kind of activity And is trying to use them as examples for others to be to be aware that the U.S. government is being attention Thanks Bobby That's Bobby gosh and opinion editor and

"Now It's been a few years. But I've seen this movie the movie before, and it ends poorly. David Hochberg is the V P L London for Home Side Financial. Let's start with that David and work backwards. Are you seeing what was just reported? This is from the Wall Street Journal, by the way earlier this week in a wanted to talk to you, But you were out of tone, so I'm glad you're back. How does this does this sound kosher to you, sir? Oh, yeah, And I have to respectfully disagree with your assessment that it ended poorly, Um, flashback to Obama Administration one. They came out and offered everything. There were blood in the streets. Do the banking industry implosion and home values were decreasing. You know, it's like catching falling night. He as you remember the 40 50 60 and some let's go back. Just hold on a second. Just we're gonna be historically accurate. This happened at the end of Bush 43. I'm talking About right. The housing crisis. So you know Obama was left with the mess, but that being said, I mean, are we walking into the same trap again? That's my question. No, I don't think we're walking in the same trip again because back then, if he had a pulse, you could get a mortgage. Now you need to give a DNA's sample and and and and and part of your kidney to get a Sleep, You know, alone today, you know, And I joke around like, if you're doing fraudulent laws today, you'd you'd have a better shot of making meth in your bathtub. Not that I recommend doing either, too. But what with the safeguards that they have in place right now, Um, it's a completely different market that it was 13 years ago when at the end of Bush and at the beginning of Obama won. So what that doesn't as a czar Listen, might not be You know, aware of a single home sale generates tens of not hundreds of thousands of dollars in transactions, right, You know, real tours and movers and pizza guys and just the economic stimulation that happens and I think that that's what they want to get going is create more jobs. You know, Movers have to move stuff. Um The furniture manufacturing companies have to manufacture furniture that's already out of 12 or six tweet team week delay time, So I think what they're looking at is an economic stimulus, and that's still Is that still the American dream to be a homeowner? Is that the best place to put your money to some people that want our homes It is and two others. That's why that we have apartments for people to rent, you know, So I mean, home ownership isn't for everybody. As we learned to know, seven await, like 60. I think the break even point back back in the day, John was like 62 to 63%.

"So I'm waiting for from our I T guy to give me a heads up on whether I go and change that now on the site that's not up on the before its launch or change as soon as it gets up, So I'm I'm waiting for that. But that's gonna change. Ah, little bit, not a lot. That's going to change a little bit. From what I've already made changes which you haven't seen yet. So keep an eye out for that scum. It'll probably be up some somewhere between them the 18th and 20th somewhere in that neighborhood. So we'll watch. I want you to watch for that. And we'll see how Hopefully, we'll get that out. There's gonna be a lot of changes, folks. I'll tell you this much. I am looking for a set of analytics that I'm going to start. Uh, following and one of the things that is, um That I have from the Obama administration. Because I think I don't think because what's going to happen is the same exact play. In the playbook of Biden is going to be Tourney out exactly as it's written from the Obama economic playbook and some of the play calls. That are gonna be made are things like making sure that BLS Department of Labor On numerous other Parts off. The administration, like the Commerce Department, and the census, pure are all going to be playing out of the same playbook. And They did a great job off that During the Obama administration. To a certain extent. They did a great job in conning what little bit of media that was not left leaning. To fake They didn't do a good job doing it or executing the plan play because it was laughable to me is always going on the government website using their own website, too. Indict them for what they had just put out. So maybe they'll do a better job than that. The Upside off. It is After January 20th. We will no longer have the party immediately. We will have the state run media. After January 20th. It will be if you're a journalist, you graduate. I guess you're gonna have to fill out off federal employment application or state run application. I guess I don't know. But you know the state run media Is going to run with the superficial. Headlines. That are put out. No matter what They're going to go with it. They're gonna run with that. That's why they're state run. So We'll see how how it goes. But that's exactly what's gonna happen. So at least I've got A somewhat of a track record here. Of with the Obama administration to give me a look. At the Plan. Anyway, Um We got two phones. Let me go to Darrell. Darrell's calling us from West Virginia. Hey, Darryl. Morning, sir. Are you, can you? I'm well, I'm glad that you exist and you persist in these frightening times of free speed limitations and state run media. I also enjoy your humor from the Northeast, So I don't know if everybody else do does, but I do. So thank you, Um, partner before Good, Martin. Partner for four years, and I didn't do the $20 a month, sir. But I did do an end of the year contribution that was the equivalent. And we'll plan to continue to do that. I know that that doesn't that messes with your schedule, but No, no, that that's a huge helped our own so grateful for that. Thank you. Certain my two questions or this Ki l 55 just got bought out, and I didn't know what your recommendations were. And then I had a separate question regarding my 86 year old mother. So tell 55 is, um You know, it is what it is. Right now. It isn't going to change. So whatever it is, at the end of, um I would say at the end of the week, but even.

"Work. It is like the the corruption in the election. They weren't even smart enough to say Let's just do this. And if we go over 200,000 people more than Registered voters. It's okay. I mean, they couldn't even fix it. One of the mathematicians that did the analytical work said they just didn't do their homework. They didn't even try to make it. Look. Like it wasn't fixed. They made no efforts to look like it wasn't fixed. And so the numbers were manipulated. But they didn't do all their homework and manipulate them in a way that it was going to be hard to detect. And throughout the Obama administration, you can't manipulate one number, not the other. I used to on Lee use past and future BLS numbers, too, because there was nobody better to indict. The government numbers, then the government itself. I said it all the time. I don't need some conservative think think tank to indict the government they weren't smart enough to change their website. They didn't even do it. I mean, so you can't report number six months ago and have this number today. It doesn't It doesn't work. And that's what was going on. That's what was going on.

Do You recommend any kind of a sequence where there are start with the high dividend paying stocks, move them or the low ones. Anything like that. Just comments on your part. No, I from a dividend perspective, It doesn't matter. It only matters that you maintain ownership in those companies and keep your cash flow. It doesn't matter where it is on the other kinds off stock. You want to move The you know the lowest number stocks, So if you have a start, that's up 40% and one that's down 10%.

"To your radio as we get to the news and Matt Reese on 700 W. Out of this is 700 wlw. 700 wlw Dan Carroll For Scott Sloane. We'll be here till noon today, and this is one of those days where we're just doing a bunch of odds and ends and a lot of different stuff. I want to get to the briefing from the Hamilton County commissioners. Talking about the latest on the Wuhan Corona virus that's coming up at 10 o'clock, so we will join that live and get back to the action here as soon as that is over, but I was responding to a caller. I had yesterday and that call. It was challenging me to list other companies besides Solyndra that got all this money from the Obama administration to do a green energy deals and these companies went bankrupt. And so I I laid out pretty much ah lot of the companies where the executives walked away with hundreds of thousands of dollars in their pockets. After the cut, the companies went bankrupt. So that so the executives, the friends that the donors will Obama. They all did just fine. But their companies went bankrupt and the employees and the taxpayers we're left holding billions of dollars. In in I O U's and money that needs to be paid back and all the rest of just a complete waste. A complete waste of the If you really go back and look at the Obama years, which is all being whitewashed now. I mean, the fraud, waste and abuse that went on through that administration is absolutely staggering and breathtaking. So here's a list of some other companies that got money and and this and this is not. This is not a complete list. Some other companies have got money from the Obama administration in the pursuit of green energy. But a lot of these. He probably never heard of before. Like a Yes. Eastern energy storage. 17.1 million from a deal. We contract They got that in August of 2010 by December of 2011. They were bankrupt. Emmy Ox received six million in federal tax credits. $15.6 Million Grant from the D O. E. Department of Energy for research and Development, bankrupt in July of 2012, Babcock and Brown 178 million, the largest stimulus wind grant. So I guess this is a company was making wind turbines. They got that in 2009. They were bankrupt by march of 2009. That doesn't make any sense that that's all that data is wrong. But anyway that company went of going bankrupt Energy conversion devices. Received 13.3 million in stimulus They were bankrupted 2011 can architect knowledge is 20 million and grants from government agencies like the Department of Energy and the Pentagon to make solar panels they went bankrupt in 2012. All these other cunt. I mean, the list goes on and on. Here's just a couple That's that I remember and that that I talked about on my radio shows back, then abound. Solar. This one was a real beauty. On July 3rd 2010 Obama announced that abound. Solar Would get $400 million in federal loan guarantees. Telling the American people that abound will manufacture advanced solar panels at two new plants out of create 2000 construction jobs, 1500 permanent jobs. By July, 3rd on 2012 1 year later about solar was bankrupt. Investor's business daily says it was fortunate that abound only drew about 70 million out of the $400 million line of credit that they had courtesy of the taxpayers. There's another good one. Nordic wind power. In July of 2009. The Obama administration offered 59 million loan guarantees to beacon slash Nordic Wind Power Inc. So this was supposed to export our support the expansion of its assembly plant in Pocatello, Idaho. Where they were producing one megawatt wind turbines. Beacon Power, which is an energy storage company, was offered 43 million for construction of a 20 megawatt flywheel energy storage plant and Stevens Town, New York. That was in 2009. They said they were going to give him that money in October of 2012. Nordic wind power filed for liquidation bankruptcy There's another one Mass Comma Corp. Another Obama classic. This is a grifter of a company. They got $100 Million from the Feds. 20 million from the state of Michigan all why promising to create 70 jobs, a minuscule 70 jobs? In the town of Kin Ross missing Michigan. Which is a small town in the upper peninsula. Instead, mess comic created just three jobs in three years time. Three jobs in three years. On got 120 million in taxpayer money. The company was founded in 2005 by professors from Dartmouth College. And they wanted to implement technology that converts biomass into ethanol. So these geniuses from Dartmouth Managed to accumulate a deficit of 135 million. And in typical government sector ways. Of thinking and doing business. The CEO of the company, Bill Brady, was paid a total compensation of $5 million In 2010. And the company had filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. And on one of those filings, they had the list risk factors. One of their risk factors was quote no experience in the markets in which we intend to operate. So that's the kind of company that got $100 million from team Obama to make bio fuels. So this caller just this numbskull who called me yesterday, insinuating that I didn't know what I was talking about. And that I was unfairly hammering the Obama administration for its environmental record, which is poor at best. Is that to be kind about it? Absolutely an abysmal failure. I just wonder what that I forget that caller's name and I wonder what that caller is thinking. Now, let's go back to the phones and we go to Indiana and talk to Mark Mark. You're on 700 wlw. How you doing? Hey, Mark. Good. Yeah. Dan, don't drop the phone Mark. Okay. Good question. Yes. I just think that's why this stimulus money coming out where she did Not. The reason I asked this week is because in Washington, they can't get anything done. But the federal government didn't shut down this country. It is the individual governors and mayors and cities and states to shut it down. Why doesn't the money come from the States stimulus money? Second reason that's a good question. $600 in Indiana is Worth a lot more to me than $600 took person in California or New York or Boston, where the cost of living is a lot higher. So if in California thanks that they need to get 2000 letter give it Of Indiana says now 500 good enough. Then leave it 500. What to meet? Why does big the federal government didn't shut down this country? It's the states and there may I mean together, says the mayor's did it. So that's my question. Well, it's a good question, Mark, and I think if you look at budgets of state, the state the state you're gonna find that the states have have absolutely no room to make those kind of expenditures. Uh, I would say that that I know there are some states and off top of my head. I don't know which ones they are. But there are some states that have ballot budget nor balanced budget amendments. And so they're not allowed to exceed the amount of money that they that they bring in, which is probably a good thing, unless of course for emergencies and things like that, and I don't know something like this would qualify as an emergency. I don't know. In Indiana. We have We have actually surplus money and Indiana because we've got a rainy day fund set up in there when you When you're the governor of a state toe, Look to Washington, D C and have a have a truckload of money rolling in that you could you know you can pass out to the people instead of trying to come up with that money yourself. So It's just It's just the way of things that Z Congress is gonna be. The one that decides is open up Treasury and send out checks. Okay, But you gotta look at Ron Paul down, and then the senator out, Kentucky says we don't have the money in motion to neither. So well, that's true. You know that they don't have the money, so the states don't have that If you say the state still has the money, But to me again, the main corporate in this is the governors and the mayor's have shut down this country. It's not the federal government Shut it down. In my opinion, Well, you're right about that. And some states have not said Christie known didn't shut things down to South Carolina. Uh what? What's the governor's name down there in Florida? He had two Santas, Rhonda Santas. The, uh I think initially he shut things down. And then then he after a few weeks of looking at it said You know what? This is crap. And you know the state of Florida that I was there. Ah, couple of times this year, and everything was open. Now people without asking stuff like that, But for the most part, things were open. I think the bar's closed early. Don't stay out. You see? Stay out of bars. As late as I used to. You know what I mean? Oh, yeah. What do you know? I'm proud of myself now, like I could go out to a bar Rose. I was out of the bar with some friends the other night and well, it was more than the other night..

"Interesting story today at a time when I know the attorney general is coming for Lot of criticism from from Trump supporters. It's your story, not getting a whole lot of attention here, but a little bit. Special counsel Derm is expanding his team examining the origins of the Russia collusion. Problem me tell you what could end up happening? Your friends? Well, 1st 1st. I'll give you the update This story. Fox News has learned that during the U. S attorney for Connecticut, who bar pointed in October, a special counsel's adding prosecutors to his team. And it's unclear who they are. But Fox is a supporter that Jeff Gents Jeff Jensen, the U. S attorney for the Eastern District of Missouri, staff of the just Department. February review, The case of former security adviser Michael Flynn was helping the terms investigation. So this is this is interesting. That term would be expanding his team at this phase. Now it was a special counsel. Makes it a lot harder makes it a lot harder for anyone to Um Just shut this down and abide administration, not saying it's impossible, but it makes it more complicated makes it more politically costly. And here's what I see happening if they shut it down. We've already established cause they said this under Trump if they shut down, they they told us that if Trump shut down the special collusion I'm sorry. Special Counsel probe into Russia collusion if they shut that down. They would impeach him just for shutting it down. We might be able to take the house back in two years. And depending on what this during probe finds, Wouldn't it be fair play? Wouldn't it be justice? Dare I say. If term gets the goods on Biden and members of the members of the Obama administration. I mean, who knows what he's really gonna find here, right? But people from the Obama administration who could be back in the bite administration And bide inward. Do shut down the Durham probe or even try to Maybe it's time for a little Democrat impeachment process on. Maybe we'll see how they like it. You know that this could happen. No, it's a ways out. But if we do have a full accounting of Russia collusion we will see is the Democrats are a bunch of corrupt Deep state liars. And their disgrace. And that the Obama administration that Joe Biden was a part of At a very high level was also a complete and utter disgrace. So don't don't give up entirely on this. I said Durham wasn't going to get it done before the election. I didn't realize that there was going to be a special counsel appointed after the election, or that he would be appointed as a special counsel. And this could this could change things. Quite a bed.
