Malcolm Nance on How Republicans Want to Physically Harm Democrats
"Here's another point. Stuart Stevens former Republican said, just remember almost every Republican didn't want America to learn what we are learning. And no Republican leader has said they will not support Trump if he's the nominee. These are not patriots. These are men and they are mostly men who care about power, not their country. Mark Elias said please don't forget that not a single Trump official spoke out at a time at the time to say Trump should concede. It's good they are now months later admitting under oath Trump was unhinged, but their public silence at the time was an enabling form of complicity. If you wonder how we got here, right? Well, this is, you know, when I write extensively about this and this book, if you want to see the transformation of the Republican Party, there's a chapter in there about how, you know, they sort of tried to control QAnon and QAnon consume the party. The beliefs that liberals are fundamentally evil, that they must be eliminated, that the should be killed, that they should have people hung in the day of the noose where they go around, you know, that, by the way, was a scenario that came from the guy who wrote the book the Turner diaries. The Timothy McVeigh used to blow up the Oklahoma City building, where they go around and they were going to look for Jews and liberals and whites that supported blacks and hang them from street posts, right? That was part of the plot to kill governor Gretchen Whitmer, plan a was to hang democratic lawmakers out of the out of the windows of the buildings. When they say they bought that scaffold to the capitol as a piece of performance art, I have no doubt they would have hung my pants from it. They would have killed him. And we are at the point where our political opponents here mean us harm.
Malcolm Nance Feels the US Is in an Alternate Universe
"Malcolm ever since before Trump Russia, when you've been warning about all this and the Republican Party's involvement, here they are. They're against sending aid to Ukraine, pushing Putin talking points. We are right back where you and I started with Trump Russia before the 2016 election. And now, by the way, a Russian missile, of course, just hit the civilian shopping center over there, I can't pronounce it. Yes. With over a thousand people inside the building, as I've said from day one, this is not a war. This is a terrorist attack on a sovereign nation. And what we're talking about on January 6th is a terrorist attack on our nation. I mean, that's right. Yeah, go ahead. And ours is internal. These people are using the phrase and when I wrote that book, the phrase Civil War. And for most of them, it's a race war. It really is. This is Timothy McVeigh stuff, the reason that he blew up the Oklahoma City bombing. He thought that it would incite an armed white uprising in America and that they would start killing liberals. They would start killing blacks and other people. And you know, I'm coming back. That's all I'm going to talk about. It's the juxtaposition between this war on democracy here to eliminate its in this country, which is democratic free, you know, and then go to my own home and these people are clamoring for fascism. You know, and to me, it's like I'm stuck in an alternate

"Like that is a thing that makes a lot of sense in my mind. For Sean Holmes, rim running toward the basket constantly check popping. Rashawn Holmes not a great rim protector, chat home, and grin phenomenal. We're in protector, like that, that is a first developmental landing spot for chat makes a lot of sense to me. Also, it would work with jabari Smith for a number of the same reasons. Jabari rotating over from the weak side, you can make that work to a very high level. Yeah, that's interesting. I wonder if Denver also stands out is like an interesting one. Just being able to dump like a smaller deal, essentially. Like I wonder if they would consider it, but they still need will Barton, I guess. It's still probably Monte Morris too. They still need Monte Morris, so maybe not. I'm just trying to think of teams that like, oh, maybe they don't want to pay this crazy amount of money. Like, Steve Ballmer seems willing to pay whatever the fuck it takes for that team, but the clippers have weird dollar figures on their books. Here's one question. If they moved Eric Bledsoe into this with Portland generate in $19 million trade, exception. They would not, because the way it works is you only get it for the guaranteed portion. That's basically what counts. So that they would only generate the smaller one. Unless they fully guaranteed Eric Bledsoe, oh, you mean if it happened this league year? Yes. Oh, I actually don't know the answer to that question. I would if I would need to do some digging. That my inclination is yes. But I don't know for sure. That's an interesting one to me because if you could generate a $19 million trade exception as Portland, that could really help you find another guy. And then extends out the Eric Bledsoe window a little bit where you don't have to make the decision now. You can make it a little bit later on. Well, I'll note that they do also still have a $20 million trade exception from the CJ deal. So it might not be as pressing, but it's an interesting idea for sure. But they might want a couple of them to be honest because if they're going to try and compete with dame now, they need they need dudes at the end of the day. Really going to need dudes. Okay. Oklahoma City conversation was more interesting, but we are moving now to Portland. That was a good transition into that. I'm just so skeptical on what Portland is doing right now. Other than other than hiring Schmidt's. Yeah, everything other than hiring Mike, which I thought was brilliant and I think that Mike is just the best and I'm so happy that he got this job. You know, people I think know how I feel about Mike. I think he's just he's such a great person and he is incredibly good at this. He is so, so good at this..

"I think that you're, I don't even know how I feel about the series yet because I was stunned by that fourth quarter in a way that it sounds like you weren't necessarily well, I was stunned by the severity. I mean, the warriors are going to struggle. They didn't in the second quarter, but they're going to struggle in the non stef minutes that has been a problem for Golden State, low these many years. But what was most interesting was I think it was like a 14 or 17 O run after curry came back on the floor. And for me, it's actually more about the zero than the 17 because the warriors not getting anything going even when they have their best player who had an impressive overall game. You know, like that, that says something. And they missed a couple of good shots, but mostly they weren't getting clean looks. Yeah, I thought Boston's defense totally ratchet it up. In the fourth quarter in a way that was really interesting, like Peyton Pritchard was awesome in that fourth quarter. That's a good job. I thought. And it was the best playmaking I've seen from jaylen Brown that first 6 minutes of the fourth quarter. Maybe the best playmaking stretch from him I've ever seen? My question now is going to be how, like everyone has talked about how Boston adjusted defensively in order to stop Golden State from getting clean looks. And frankly, like also just having Stephen Curry off the court. My question is how Golden State responds to defensively. Because I don't really know if they will continue to just leave shooters open. That seemed like a significant strategy for them in game one. I heard draymond green kind of allude to it on his podcast where they were talking about or he was talking about, you know, they decided to leave Derek white relatively open from three in Derek white, made them pay from three..
Remember When Bill Clinton Blamed Talk Radio for Oklahoma Bombing?
"There's only one word to use for people who take personal suffering and tragedy and loss of life and weaponize it to try to score points. It's gross. It's grotesque. There's no other word to describe it. Listening to the people on the left, the joy Reid's and the Don lemons of the world who want to somehow blame the evil action of one 18 year old in Buffalo, New York. On a TV network or a television personality or a radio personality, Clinton tried this years ago. I'm old enough to remember when Bill Clinton tried to blame talk radio. For the Oklahoma City bombing, and I think he got so much pushback in Democrats got so much flack for such a grotesque thing to do. That they didn't do it again, but they're doing it this time. They're doing it with buffalo. And it is really sickening. That's the only word to use.

"On April 25th. I mean, April 19th, 1995. It was the Oklahoma City bombing. And so what happened was, Charlie hanger was working out of area called noble county. And once this happens, he got dispatched that, hey, look, you need to head to Oklahoma City. And of course he starts doing that, then he started heading that way and they said, no, you need to remain in your patrol area. Go back to regular traffic enforcement and do that stuff. So a little bit of background on Charlie hanger. Charlie was kind of like me. Some people would say that kind of by the book said you'd write your own mother a ticket. And I said, negative, I would never write my own mother a ticket, however, I would hold her call another trooper and have that trooper issue the ticket. So people would say, your heartless, no? But Charlie Charlie was by the book, in fact, a funny story about Charlie hanger is that he was called to he was testifying in a jury trial one time. And the 12 people who were finally seated, they said, you know, any of you guys got a ticket before ten of the 12 people on the jury had all been ticketed by trooper hanger. By the same person? And he's Oklahoma trooper. He's Oklahoma true for yeah. So on just on a regular jury trial, you know, not the Oklahoma City one, but on a regular jury trial. Yeah. Ten to the 12 people ended up both. And they still found the guy guilty. So, you know, I'm surprised the prosecutor didn't strike them all. Yeah, well, that's what you thought, but may have been that he wrote everybody tickets. So this was the ten that there was only two left that hadn't been written tickets. So he's waiting on them when a guy on the courtroom. Yeah. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to walk you through. I actually have the actual trial transcripts from the federal trial. And I pulled some interesting things out of that because there's a lot of things that have to happen. For them to finally get back to Timothy McVeigh before he's released out of jail. But basically, like we said, it starts the explosion happens. Nobody knows what's going on at that time. Of course, you know, first thing we think we think of foreign terrorists, some kind of foreign group maybe. That's responsible for this, but they don't know because it's just chaos. And we actually have an episode coming up with the FBI agent who worked the pizza bomber case. And it was the same thing he said. It's just all chaos. Just chaos. As you start managing it, you finally get into an investigative rhythm, but it's just chaos at the beginning. And obviously, this one's huge because a 168 people were killed, 19 of them, children. So this is a huge case. And the FBI named for the case was oak bomb okay, bond the oak bomb. So anyway, Charlie's.

And just because someone says they're sallie Mae from Oklahoma City and they they've lived there for 17 years and they have two children and they like your show.

"Really improved his shooter over the last few years to the point where I feel pretty good about him knocking down 35% of his spot threes. So this is a deal that makes a lot of sense for the Portland trailblazers. I actually think that it doesn't totally reshape their team, but it fills multiple holes in a way that the off season prior to this acquisition just did not. I would be terrified if I was the Portland trailblazers prior to this Larry dance deal of going into a season with just use of nurkic and Cody zeller as my bigs. And Larry Nance is not an enormous big man by any stretch. And I think that if one of Yusuf nurkic or Cody zeller gets hurt, the blazers are probably gonna have to sign a true center in order to counteract that. The problem for Portland here is that that true center is something that is important in their scheme. So to have only gone into this off season prior to this deal having Cody zeller and Yusuf nurkic on the roster. I think was kind of a strange move given their injury histories. it, on the wing, they really only went out and got Tony Snell, and I know that Tony Snell had a great year last season shooting the ball. I think he went 50 50 like 95 or something like that from the free throw line because of limited attempts. But he's a very limited player. He's a decent three and D guy. He probably will be able to be their 8th man, but this is a team that even with Larry Nance, I think is still ripe for a shake up in some regard. The team is now given Norman Powell this 5 year $90 million deal in addition to the enormous deals given out the Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. And I don't know that we know if those three can play together on a playoff court, quite yet. While Norman Powell is extremely long and has a 7 foot wingspan and his strong for his size, Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum and Norman Powell across the front line or across the backcourt seems like a way for teams to get their bigger shot making wings in the playoffs matched up on to smaller players that they can take advantage of. Now, what acquiring Larry Nance does is it allows you to counteract that by taking one of Lillard McCollum, Powell off the court and in this case it would probably be Powell. It also counteracts for potential injuries, which CJ McCollum only played about 50 games last year. So I think that being able to play a more traditional lineup because you have Larry Nance now that can play the four. Is specifically helpful..

"Unfortunately, we saw him play 5 minutes and 16 seconds and summer league, and then yeah, I think it's not an uncommon tale that people checked out on the thumb there after he was gone, because he was like the most interesting piece by far. Yeah, he really was. Yeah, look, Oklahoma City, I mean, they're probably going to be the worst team in the NBA next year. And that's fine. I don't think they have any illusions otherwise. If they honestly, if they have it their way, they will be. I honestly. That's what that's what this is, that's what this is all about. And I think that there was a lot of people in Oklahoma City that understand what the team is doing. And so halfway through the year, when it looks like they were in the mix for the play and it's like, well, what are we doing, guys? What is this? This isn't the plan. So I think they will play enough young players, and that's why another reason why I think if you are a thunder fan and you understand what they're trying to do, then you can understand why they would just wave Kemba Walker before the season. Because Kimball walkers a floor razor. An unnecessary thing for where this team is headed. So yeah, they should be one of the worst teams in the league. Really just due to an experience. You know, these all these guys had three or four years under their belt. I think this could be a pretty decent team, but they don't. And young players lose games. That's just the way the NBA works. Yeah, I'm going to be interested to see poku this year because he is just the best. Like just watching Pokémon to be happy. What a bizarre player. I'm going to be interested to see Darius baisley this year. Like, that's the guy that's like kind of gotten lost. And I have actually liked more of what I've seen from him than what I think most people have recognized just because he's been hidden away in Oklahoma City. Like he's still learning defensively and he's still like a sub 30% three point shooter. But there are a lot of tools there. There are a lot of athletic tools that he's shown. Yeah, yeah, I'm intrigued. This is a big year for baisley without a doubt. He will be extension eligible after this season and the thunder don't like players to get to restricted free agency and they usually will extend them or they'll trade them. And so to me, this is basically future in OKC will likely be determined how he plays this season. So to me, I'd like to see them not necessarily a box him in, but I'd like to I'd like to see him be able to showcase some kind of like three and D ability and then transition like ball handling and transition ability to because he's got that in his bag, certainly. So I'm interested to see him too..

"Okay, we're back here at the game theory podcast. We are going to run through Oklahoma City Portland in Utah in terms of what they did the summer. Let's start with Andrews dear sweet, Oklahoma City Thunder. The most important thing they did this summer with Sanchez Gil just Alexander to a max extension. They traded for Kemba Walker and the number 16 overall pick for Al Horford and Moses Brown with like some second round pick swapping within that deal. They then moved that number 16 overall pick for two additional first round picks in the future. So they got Kemba Walker and two future first round picks for Al Horford basically. Yeah. On top of that, they decided to then wave Kemba Walker. Do we know how much money can I give back yet? To do this? So he gave back basically 10 million per season of the last two years of his deal. Yeah. So like a significant chunk. It basically, the way that I've heard it explained is that it basically allowed them to roll Derek favors as money into that deal. And it'd just be like Derek favors was like poof, like nothing, like the money's not there anymore. Yeah. And I think it's how it's being envisioned. Yeah, so they traded for Derek favors as well. Bringing him into Oklahoma City along with a future first, and I believe a future second, right? Yes. That's right. On top of that, they sign Mike mascara in free agency. I believe that's everything with Oklahoma City, right? Yeah. So look, the most important thing that they did this summer was the thing they got done, they extended Shea Gil just Alexander for 5 more years. And that's really all that matters. I feel like they got their guy under contract. This is a total rebuilding project that is trying to find stars in the draft. I am skeptical that they drafted one in Josh giddy, but I think he's probably a pretty good player..

"He's smaller, but a lot of their perimeter players are bigger and can at least handle the load as like the lead perimeter player in D'angelo Russell and Anthony Edwards. I kind of like the fit of Patrick Beverly with a lot of their backcourt mates, I guess. Yeah, I just wonder personality wise what that looks like with Karl Anthony towns in particular. I have my doubts about that. At that particular fit, but yeah, I don't know. I just have a hard time envisioning what this team looks like as a great team. Or as even a good team. I've seen that makes the play in. You know, I just don't we're just going to have to see a leap. We need to see a pretty big leap from Anthony Edwards, or if Malik Beasley can put it together, or maybe Jaden McDaniels really pops. He looked great this summer, but they need somebody to pop, like pretty big in order to get to even the playing level. Because otherwise I just don't see it. I don't know what they're building toward in terms of defensive identity. It is my biggest problem. There are three best players are D'angelo Russell, Anthony Edwards and Carl towns. And all three of those guys report offenders. And Malik Beasley. Is gonna play real minutes at the very least. And he's an exceedingly poor defender. He might be worse than the all three of the other ones. So yeah. You can have Patrick Beverly, you can have Jaden McDaniels you can have Joshua kogi and all of those guys are good defenders and maybe they can go out and they can bring back Jared Vanderbilt who I thought was really good last year. I'm a little bit surprised that he's still out on the market. If I was Oklahoma City, for instance, I would be looking pretty substantially at him. And I'm sure we'll talk about Oklahoma City here momentarily. But like I said, you can bring in Patrick Beverly, but as long as you're four key offensive players, are this bad on defense? It's just gonna be really, really hard to do anything substantial on that end, like Ricky Rubio started 51 games this year. He's a really good defender as a point guard. They have Jaden McDaniels. They Josh kogi this year, jerk Culver, when he played as a pretty good defender, even though he can't really do anything else. Jared Vanderbilt's athletic, but it doesn't matter when you have three guys out there next to them that are just total non defenders in the way that towns Beasley Edwards and Russell are. Yeah. And it's not only like the lack of cohesion on the defensive end because they're just won't be..

Maybe that last night NewsRadio 1000 Katie, Okay, Leigh Matthews. It's one of Oklahoma City's Jim's. That's been around a lot longer than people realize, and does so many things that people don't realize it's the Oklahoma City Community Foundation. Vice president of that foundation is Joe Carter, and he's joining us now and why I wanted to have you on Joe. First of all the bring everybody up to speed as to what the Oklahoma City Community Foundation does. Well. The community foundation was formed 50 years ago, 51 years ago By John Kirkpatrick and Others with a vision of really providing the community a place for and we'll just say sustainability for the nonprofit sector he believed in endowments and essentially what an endowment is. It's a permanent fund that provides an annual distribution. Um, you know, In our case, it's a 5% distribution back out into the community, and so he really challenged the leadership in the community and those in the non profit. Ah, sector. To consider. You know the rainy day fund if you will, Mr Growing endowment. Which there again, They didn't have to have a golf tournament or Ah or ah, you know, rubber chicken event or something of that nature that each and every year they would receive a distribution off of that. In Dama, which would hopefully sustain them well into the future. So that was kind of the premise behind the community Foundation when it got its start was all based on that sustainability, But over time, his tax laws changed and And various things happened. We became a very donor centered organization in which we work with donors to carry out their philanthropic desires. Um And often times that is through what we call legacy gifts or something of that nature. Where They can establish a fun and then provide support for their favorite passions and causes well into the future. Um, so that's played very well and then You know, prior to the bombing, we did a little bit. In the scholarship space. But after that, that opened up a whole new arena of of understanding how to provide scholarships for folks and the best efficient manner. And now we're the state's largest provider of independent scholarships, meaning that donors come in and we work with them on putting a scholarship in place that really achieves. What they're trying to accomplish with a scholarship. And then our trusty scholarship initiatives also, um Look at first generation students, the foster care students and then just the everyday good student. Maybe not the four point student that that student between the three point Three and a 3.73 point eight It's actively involved in the community actively involved, maybe in their church. Really just good citizens that we manage an awful lot of scholarship. So we sent about $2.5 million in scholarship support out each and every year to the community. Our chairs, organizations that we manage. We manage about 375 charitable organizations, endowment funds so that generates another $9 million annually back into the community. And then just what our donors come in and do through their own funds. And what have you generates? You know another 20 to $25 million back into the charitable organizations so It's AH, we don't fundraise per se. We actually assist organizations, families and individuals on Of meeting their shared one tip. And Joe. I wanted to ask you about the relationship between the Oklahoma City Community Foundation and the bombing. Can can you bring us up to speed on that? Because I know that's a big part of the organization. At least it was once upon a time. Well, it was in the beginning. I mean the situation where you know funds, flu, came into the state into the governor's office and came into the mayor's office to support that effort Initiative and And they kind of turned to us to lead the way and support that. So for many years, we've been able to do that through the Survivor initiative and and also through some of the scholarship initiatives, but That's that's kind of wound down now, after years and years of support, So, uh, you know, we still provide ongoing support for some of those individuals, for the most part that in this David's wound down, but that's a great example of the community foundation stepping up in time of need. Joe Carter, vice president of development with Oklahoma City Community Foundation. I know this time of year. It's getting close to the end of the year. And that's when ah lot of people who do their charitable giving do they're giving. I gather that zoo you would like to get in touch with Sure, So we just like to let people know that there are options out there and there's no right or wrong way to give. Obviously, this time a year is the giving time of the years. A lot of organizations are reaching out. Touching people asking for those requests. And we want them to know that certainly especially this year. That support is very much needed within our charitable community. But also we have all those endowment signs here for Ah, a lot of those organizations and this is also an opportunity for somebody that wants to leave that sustainable gift. And when we talk about sustainable giving giving, essentially, what we're talking about, is is if somebody made a $100 gift here to one of those type of funds, then essentially, that's the gift that keeps giving. So $100 gift today into an endowment fund is gonna provide $5 next year to the organization, maybe through investment performance, the next year's $5.10 and so on and so forth, and after 25 years that original $100 is now yielding. You know? 25 to $30 a year in annual support, so It's really a way for people to do that sustainable giving and that's what the community foundation is really built upon. And how well and how, how..
