"Let's look at that next clip out of that. Almost ninety thousand they took out. This is lucas and from fox news. Only four thousand. Four hundred of them were americans. That's what the pentagon said. So they took out almost ninety thousand people. They're saying we can't get it done in time. We can't get it done in time and the state department. Yeah you how. You're going to talk about this in a second They don't know what to do. But here we find the ninety thousand only four thousand of more americans. You know this is one little tidbit. there's not a tidbit either. One little episode that the american people are going to be very very upset about and they're starting to realize this the priorities that they have and of course You know it was overall for me. It's the foreign policy. Why world where we get our sales in those holes and they do not go to the point of. Oh trying to disengage from this and and worked some deals in how you disengage. No that's not it. Because both sides are aggressive interventionist and in this case the republicans are worse than the democrats in many ways of keeping the troops there. Of course the the republicans right now can criticize the democrats for not being very efficient and it in solving these problems and and once again Overall the last twenty years The only way you could blame buying for that is being pretty lackadaisical about it and support of a. When he was a senator. He didn't have much to say about that. But you know on these these numbers they they are astounding The americans Are being taken care of and it raises a one important question for me. Is that when people leave Leave their country and go work someplace else which they should have a right to do. Does the army follow them. You know if you're a businessman takes his businesses as it goes place elsewhere even if it's for lower taxes Does he get protection. Basically he does the overseas private. Investment corporation is government insurance that if there's a political event were military event that he gets bailed out so so the principle that we've been following which is a lousy principle. Is that no matter where you go in the world. You're an american citizen and we are never going to desert you well. I think diplomatically. There's some truth to that. But this whole thing that people go who knows why why all the americans are there. They're contractors there are people starting businesses. Maybe some people in business with some afghans and they've decided to have to leave is it our obligation to pay for taking all these immigrants coming in of the afghans coming. you know. our hotel gets close. We're we're having a conference in virginia. And because i wanted to use it for for for communications you know with the afghan thing. So they're up there. They they take over the hotel we have to leave and And it never gonna probably feel the hotel pay for the rent we've already started paying for the random illegals coming in here. We put them up in hotels and everything else so Yes punish american people and and give whatever they think they need it. I i i've Labeled this It is hard to understand why they do this. Why did they bring these people. Why why why. Well it's. it's the soroush agenda. I think you know for a while if he was thorough said About his plans you say what s no be- he. He's for an open. Society assigns libertarian person. Saudi some libertarians. Really believe in you know crashing borders and all this so the open society is something that you should look at. But i don't think he's interested in the open society that libertarians might suggest that we have so but i think the source agenda is is One world government and chaos would lead us to that and once we get this Passport in place..

"Yeah that's a big deal but you know biden inherited the deal. That trump made okay like it or not. That was the deal but unusual fashion. The demonization of everything trump touched instead of saying this is our deal. Make it work. he decided. well. I'm gonna make my own deal the different teal and they didn't do anything that worked. And that's why we had this smith. That's all political so the demonization of trump has a lot to do with it. But you talk about. We're not getting our people out and we won't get him out in time and that seems to be what everyone is saying. In fact there's a reason why let's look at this next clip. This is fast and this is a leaked state. Department document is just a phone but talks about the evacuation numbers and you can see the numbers from kabul but the takeaway is this as arthur. Schwartz writes american citizens account for less than seven percent of those evacuated yesterday. That's why the white house state and dod having dodging questions about these numbers. The reason dr paul that we're not going to get all the americans out in time is that we're not getting the americans out. Were getting anyone out who shows up and you might say yes. We feel bad for the afghan people and that is a fact that is the case and they should never have to deal with a nest we made but if you only taking seven percent out in each plane load. There's a problem you know this brings up. a broader. question has been around a long time because once they're in there you can't say forget about. They shouldn't have done that that sort of thing. The government act wrongly and the people shouldn't have wanted to go but the big question is under ordinary circumstances. If you decide to go off off to some country that could be dangerous. Should the army follow you and protect you and your business. And and that's what happens. They go and they start biz. Not only is we have this Overseas private investment corporation. We guarantee that the companies taken over by the hoodlums in the country that these business people go to that will bail the mile and the thing is. I think there should be You know we should have a national defense. But i don't think the national defense you know follows every american no matter where they go. I think you can have diplomacy and talk about how to help people when they get into a problem but the whole idea especially once again is a big corporations that have been able to manipulate this and the military follows follows. them You know the companies when they go overseas it to actually have that insurance. I imagine there aren't a whole lot of people that know that these companies are insured by the taxpayer. If they because do you think all the americans are over there right now or sightseeing already. Think they've starting they were hoping and and everybody would hope for good result but they were hoping they'd set up a business or they get into business already but if but if they go broke the taxpayers going to bail them out so that that that that could be changed rather easily but it would be We all the people would probably go along with when i'm talking about but The the deep state would not they. There's no way they're gonna accept that. That's a great point. Dr paul and that suggests the whole thing really is a manufactured crisis if they had to take on all the risk of doing business over there in afghanistan they might think twice or they might at least have know. Have some options. But i'm going to I'm going to get ready to close if you're ready to make it announced. I had some of the clips. I wanted to make an important announcement In getting late in time. But i want to tell our viewers especially our conference viewers. That's coming up in just a few days less than two weeks now..

"There's things that pop up politically economically environmentally that you have to respond to. So how you develop a strategy long back. So find though is that Well. If people are still doing five year strategic plans, that is the most gobsmack mistake you can make. You go to switch that away, but the other mistakes I find are less. Common but less. Well articulated were come from unexpected places. And it really comes down to division between what are called non anchors and global thinkers. Known thinkers in business are the WHO are in survival mode really. So reactive just trying to get by all their strategy in quotation marks is about how do I get the next sale to make sure we stay in business? It sucks when you're in survival mode. And typically, there is a scarcity mentality there in a constant state of dog eat dog win at all costs and it's it's a very self. Focus. And that is the primary thing that can pop up as mistake in strategy. A global thinker however, quite different. A global thinker has significant advantages in terms of being able to be more responsive and flexible in terms of the tactics that they take. But do some deep work around it What I find is that the global thinkers, their purposes really by transformation. Transformation of self, others? Planet. they really after the biggest benefit for the greatest number of stakeholders. And global thinkers have moved beyond just personal gain through their business to serving the fulfilment of others as well. It's really it's not self less, which is everything for someone else forget about me 'cause turns can turn into martyrdom and then you're back to survive boat. No good. This is about being self full, and this is putting a plan in your business so that your business does well as well as serving the needs of others. Global thinkers have a huge depth of their thinking that embraces complexity and therefore allows them to be flexible and responsive to lots of changing things. and. You know what global thinkers know that if you think big big, you make a big difference and because you're listening to this I know that's you and you likely have a strong handle on this. So, let's have a look at where these mistakes show up. So the mistake number one is if you have a purpose that you may not realize it, but he's really one of survival. So, what you need to do is look at the wording intent of your strategy and projects and tactics, and is there an underlying sense at this is just like let's just make it through the year and hope for the best is that kind of mentality. There is kind of a sense of desperation there or does it infused with transformation? So arrived to share the story about. Well I find it. I founded inspire came across OPEC did nothing about them before until recently, it is the Overseas Private Investment Corporation it's a US government Development finance institutions so this is some good news coming out of the US. I'm basically set up the US government and think from two thousand eight and it focuses on harnessing private capital. So the public. Private sector business to help solve critical development challenges in developing countries around the world. And enduring that it advances US foreign policy develops US business and it's a win also for the developing country. I thought that's pretty cool. That's that's a transformational purpose and some of this stuff they've got on their two thousand, sixteen annual Puerto Pretty Cool. They said that they're projects committed to entice sixteen projected to. So they haven't necessarily reach the editor on line to support more than ten thousand local jobs. Generate hundred and seventeen million developing country revenue and lead to seven point four, five, billion..

"G United States competing with China over there's also energy on the race to develop new ways of generating energy waves that go well beyond traditional fossil fuels. I talked with the U. S. Secretary of Energy Damn Bria about the energy race, and he said, we should be concerned about the competition. The global energy landscape has changed dramatically over the last few decades. And our position as the United States has changed within that landscape. In that time. We've seen a dramatic shift in the flow of us resources to developing economies all across the world. And I was looking at some statistics earlier today. Back in 1969. 70% of the monetary flows back, then were categorized as official development assistance by the U. S government. And in 5 2080% instead came from the private capital markets. So that's you know, that's that's an intense shift away from government resources to the private sector. That was 15 years ago, so I'm sure that number could be even higher than today. But it clearly in the you know illustrates the private sector is playing a bigger role in the international arena, and one component of our mission here at the Department of Energy is to reach out and engage. With these increasingly important global actors. With that in mind, our department via the Department of Energy is leading some efforts to develop what we think your cutting edge public private partnerships and help achieve revolt in the very dynamic energy landscape. And we're doing that with our partners and within the interagency primarily the was No. Now is the DFC, the old O pick the old Overseas Private Investment corporation. We've been working very closely with them, but You know we're very excited about these partnerships because they not only yield economic growth, but they enable us to strengthen his ties International Parker's and provide new opportunities. All across the world for American businesses. And I just talked Tio Doctor for the role of the International Energy Agency, and he tells me that 2020 is now set to see the look line and energy investment on record. Obviously due to the pandemic, but this is a reduction of roughly 1/5 or almost $400 billion. That's in capital spending compared to 2019 CAF exes records as we call it. AII is reported on the opportunity for policy actions and we've we've worked closely with them. They're targeting energy investments to booth growth boost growth. To create even more jobs and to continue reducing energy related emissions. And even Mohr, there's really potential here to expand energy access. By nearly 270 million people and provide cleaner cooking solutions to nearly 420 million people. All across the globe is my predecessor, Rick Perry, secretary Kerry said. You know, there's still so many people around the world without access to commercial energy, and we want to help fix that problem for them and create opportunities for us here in America. But you know, as we know it, as we've discussed in the past governments alone don't have. The resource is for all of those investment. So we're going to we're going toe rely upon and it will require, you know, very strong public and private partnerships. Based on what we refer to here in the United States is a bottom up energy philosophy, one that supports free markets it funds scientific research in it honors the choice of producers and consumers alike. So with our private sector counterparts were going to be foes focusing here on things like nuclear technologies and working to develop new reactors and new fuels for those reactors. Fuels that are accident tolerant and non Phil Efren. We're also focusing on wind and solar technologies, which is a priority for our department, in a large portion of our RND budget here at the Department of Energy will be spent on the work that's coming out of our national Renewable energy laboratory. In Golden, Colorado. In that vein, we're going to be pursuing some new battery technologies. And all of our innovators here in entrepreneurs in the private sector, working lockstep. On some new carbon capture utilization in storage process projects. So in short, you know the government and the we can, and we should play a very crucial role in helping to bring all of these projects over the finish line. Today that it's exciting, so exciting time to be in the energy business. It's an exciting time to be an energy policy. And as the world changes so away Sir, that was very helpful, and it's clear you want more energy, and you want a cheaper you want Mohr Investments wants a private investment in particular. We talked before you said, and you tend to say it's all of the above when it comes to energy, as I try to get a choice between renewables for spousal feels things like that. Give us a sense of what that really means In practice, doesn't the government have to pick some with winners and losers? Full of winners alluded losers or something we avoid in the marketplace. We don't as a government. We don't want to pick individual players, but as technology picking winners and losers and technology, it's not something that we want to engage in. Either. What we want is to pursue Z and I have discussed it all of the above strategy. And you know, the president is talk about this publicly. And those words mean exactly what they are. We're going to pursue renewable technology very, very aggressively. We just announced on the West Coast of brand new Facility at one of our laboratories there that's going to allow us to develop grid scale storage battery storage. This is 20 megawatts and above it allows us to develop. The next generation of battery stores that will allow our nobles to be integrated into our current electric grid much more easily and much more efficiently. That was Danbury et US energy secretary. Coming up. Corporate America isn't just looking inward. It's also looking at the outside world to see what it can do to move us forward.

"Well, now that we have switched to daylight saving time. You might be feeling a little crummy this morning as you start your day. Well, it's not all in your head coming up on science at eight twenty two we're going to learn about how the disruption in our schedules. Throws off our body's natural rhythms that's going to be science. And as we said that'll come your way at eight twenty two and then looking forward on morning edition today. The White House is releasing its budget blueprint for twenty twenty the proposal. Also, reportedly includes more than eight billion dollars, a new border wall funding, a closer look is coming up on our program continues. Weather wise today sunny day with highs ranging from the low to mid sixties, we'll have northwesterly winds from ten to twenty miles per hour. This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm David Greene in Culver City, California. And I'm Steve Inskeep. In Washington DC today, we hear the way that President Trump's White House might spend the federal budget if he could decide like its predecessors. The White House proposes an annual budget the decisions are up to congress, which is not often inclined to take any presidents exact request. But the budget shows the president's priorities, including a request for another eight point six billion dollars to build a border wall. The acting director of the office of management and budget for the president has Russell vote and he's on the line. Good morning. Good morning. Thanks for having me on welcome to the program. Didn't the president's previous insistence on extra border wall funding and in a shutdown and no progress for him. Well, we think we're making progress we didn't get everything that we may we requested in the end of last year's appropriations Bill, however, the president as you know, has moved forward with his authorities in statue to declare this is a national emergency along our border. And as a result, we have appropriations that have been passed by congress and access to those appropriations through reprogramming statutes that we intend to put forward towards the wall. So we will have completed have about half of the miles that are necessary for the top seventeen projects that are important to the department of homeland security with the use of the national emergency money. And so this additional request is to complete the wall and the full top seventeen projects. Okay. So that's why you get the eight point six billion dollars. But let's remember that there was this government shutdown. It was massively unpopular and very disruptive. Of course, the president in the end got about the same thing as he has offered before the. Shutdown. He did declare a national emergency. But congress is on its way to to quite possibly rebuking the president on that. And the president's made it very clear that he if if the Carson's him a rebuke in the form of a disapproval resolution he will veto that so far the house or Senate has not reached veto March overriding the veto more margin. So this is something that's going forward. And we think it will make significant project progress along our southern border. I wanna play a bit of tape for you. If I can this is a rancher and veterinarian who works along the border in Cochise county Zona his name is Gary Thrasher and we asked him over the weekend about border fencing. And this is part of what he had to say it's very effective in some places by to slow them down. But that's all it does is local down. It doesn't. Absolutely stop one hundred percent effort will is it possible. That this focus on the wall. By the president is really just kind of a diversion from a more sophisticated and broader border strategy that includes a lot of different elements. No. In fact, I think it's a mistake to think that we've only ever been talking about building the wall. We have always been talking about a full border control. Policy solution that includes additional agents additional technology at our ports of entry certainly the wall or fencing which the Democrats have a pass repeatedly in their history and voted for humanitarian aid surveillance equipment all of these things are part of what is necessary to secure the border. It just so happens that the most disagreement we've find with our friends across the aisle is as it pertains to the border wall. Let me ask you about a couple of other items. If I can I if I'm not mistaken defense spending goes up in this proposal diplomatic spending spending for the State Department goes down a why is this a time for less diplomacy? It's not a time for less diplomacy. Diplomacy will be fully funded in this budget. What you're referring to is the portion of the budget that is included in state in USA ID for foreign aid. So foreign aid does go down by that twenty three percent. It's something that we think is important. That if we are funding the priorities of this administration securing the country that we need to be able to to pare back in our spending in other country. We're tired of the NASA space camp being spent in in Pakistan. We're tired of. Money being spent to set up a cricket league in Afghanistan. We just think that at the end of the day, although it's a smaller percentage of the budget. It's still significant in a time of one trillion dollar deficits, we can no longer afford some of these activities, you know, that I'm curious about that Mr. vote foreign aid is unpopular proposing cuts to foreign aid can be popular. But the United States is in this big competition with China and the president's very concerned about China for global influence and China is investing a lot of money around the globe is time the United States should be pulling back on the relatively small investments, we make well, again, it's not about pulling back in competition, which China we have a major new proposal that is reflected in this budget that is coming straight from congress and the reforms that they made to reform our Overseas, Private Investment, corporation, and development assistance. These are things that is fully funded in allows us to compete with congress along the lines of what you just mentioned. But we do want to get rid of some of the waste and inefficiencies. That we see in our foreign aid Russell vote of the office of management and budget. Thanks so much for taking the time. Really? Appreciate it. Thank you. Bye and NPR's Mara Liasson. Our national political correspondent has been listening along Mara. What'd you hear there? I heard that the budget is going to be an expression of the president's vision and priorities. That's what budgets are. They are rarely if ever accepted by congress as written. And as a matter of fact, the cliche is dead on arrival, and especially this year with divided government Democrats controlling the house this one probably will be, but I think you heard the acting director pretty clearly express what this budget tells us that the president wants he wants more defense spending. He wants less spending on domestic programs a lot less on foreign aid, which is miniscule to begin with and he wants money for the border wall in in his telling to finish the border wall. So this is a political document. I. Foremost, and it expresses the president's priority there there was also in that interview a passing mention of the deficit and concerned about the deficit. But of course, the deficit has soared under President Trump. Do you believe that Republicans for that matter? Democrats particularly care about the budget deficit. I think right now neither party cares about the budget deficit. It's basically Republicans used to be the party of fiscal responsibility. That was part of their brand that's pretty much disappeared as you said. The budget deficit is now on at record levels. President Trump campaigned on not only getting rid of the deficit, but actually getting rid of the entire national debt, but that has pretty much disappeared as a priority. And of course, when you say record levels the deficit has been higher, but in times of recession to have peace time, which which means that if there is a recession there's no room for fiscal stimulus Mara.

It's not a time for less diplomacy. Diplomacy will be fully funded in this budget. What you're referring to is the portion of the budget that is included in state in USA ID for foreign aid. So foreign aid does go down by that twenty three percent. It's something that we think is important. That if we are funding the priorities of this administration securing the country that we need to be able to to pare back in our spending in other countries. We're tired of the NASA space camp being spent in in Pakistan. We're tired of. Money being spent to set up a cricket league in Afghanistan. We just think that at the end of the day, although it's a smaller percentage of the budget. It's still significant in a time of one trillion dollar deficits. We can no longer afford some of these activities. You know, I'm curious about that Mr. vote four and eight is unpopular proposing cuts to foreign aid can be popular. But the United States is in this big competition with China and the president's very concerned about China for global influence and China is investing a lot of money around the globe. Is this a time? The United States should be pulling back on the relatively small investments, we make well again, it's not about pulling back in our competition with China. We have a major new proposal that is reflected in this budget that is coming straight from congress and the reforms that they made to reform our Overseas, Private Investment, corporation, and development assistance. These are things that is fully funded and allows us to compete with congress along the lines of what you just mentioned. But we do want to get rid of some of the waste and inefficiency. That we see in our foreign aid Russell vote of the office of management and budget. Thanks so much for taking the time. Really? Appreciate it. Thank you. Bye and NPR's Mara Liasson. Our national political correspondent has been listening along Mara. What'd you hear there? I heard that the budget is going to be an expression of the president's vision and priorities. That's what budgets are. They are rarely if ever accepted by congress as written. And as a matter of fact, the cliche is they're dead on arrival, and especially this year with divided government Democrats controlling the house this one probably will be, but I think you heard the acting director pretty clearly express what this budget tells us that the president wants he wants more defense spending. He wants less spending on domestic programs a lot less on foreign aid, which is miniscule to begin with and he wants money for the border wall in his telling to finish the border wall. So this is a political document I in. Foremost, and it expresses the president's priority. There were there was also in that interview a passing mention of the deficit and concerned about the deficit. But of course, the deficit has soared under President Trump. Do you believe that Republicans for that matter? Democrats particularly care about the budget deficit. I think right now neither party cares about the budget deficit. It's basically Republicans used to be the party of fiscal responsibility. That was part of their brand that's pretty much disappeared. Is you said the budget deficit is now on at record levels. President Trump campaigned on not only getting rid of the deficit, but actually getting rid of the entire national debt, but that has pretty much disappeared as a priority. And of course, when you say record levels the deficit has been higher, but in times of recession to have time, which which means that if there is a recession there's no room for fiscal stimulus Mara. Thanks so much. Thank you. That's NPR's. Mara liasson. The first full week of south by south west is underway with a big. Focus on the twenty twenty election. More than half a dozen candidates showed up in Austin, Texas over the weekend for the annual music arts, and technology convention and Democrats seem to be competing with one another to be the tough on tech candidate. Here's more from NPR's. Arthur shahani. Hundreds of fans and the moody theater cheered, a Senator Elizabeth Warren hopped on stage. She just rallied in Queens, New York where Amazon pulled its plans to build a new headquarters in the face of protests. And now at a conference full of tech workers, she came with the same message big tech is killing competition, and that's bad. We wanna keep that marketplace competitive, not let a giant who has an incredible information advantage and a manipulative advantage. Be able to snuff you out her new policy position break up the tech giant's Amazon is exhibit one it's the popular site for shopping, and it also makes bedframes yoga mats a growing list. Warren says you can't run the marketplace and make the goods that's too much power in too few hands while consumers benefit from low prices. She says small businesses are losing if she's president. The losers will change the monopolist will make fewer monopoly profits who after years of scandal privacy violations election, interference mega hacks, Silicon Valley have emerged early on as a presidential campaign issue warrants. Call is pushing her party to the left a place where many Democrats aren't ready to go given the party's reliance on tech donors in the two thousand eighteen midterms tech companies clearly favored Democrats over the GOP sixty nine percents of Amazon money went to democratic federal campaigns. Seventy nine percents of Facebook money eighty three percent of alphabet Google money. It's going to be awkward.

"Is a sickening story. And I'm sorry after telling you about it. I just ten point six billion dollars in aid for Central America, southern Mexico, but not a dime for the wall. The whole thing is a shock at jive. Sorry. The United States today pledged almost six billion dollars. To help develop projects in southern Mexico. What does that mean? Let me job opportunities. That's crazy. Regional plan to allow Central America's a Mexican so remaining their countries and not have to emigrate, you know, the money's not going to go to the poor people. You know, the money's going to be skimmed off by this very same. Crazy. And who announced this US State Department. Whereas Trump on all of this six billion dollars. Going to Central America, southern Mexico Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador through the quote OPEC organization. Go check out what OPEC is. I know an awful lot about oh pick the Overseas Private Investment corporation where that money. What do you think that money's gonna go? Are you joking? Are you kidding? No wall. But we're giving them money. What for they stay there? Are you joking? I saw a story about Muslim gangs rampaging through Germany. They were brought in under asylum from wonderful hell holes like Lebanon, other latrines like the Palestinian. Territories are the hell holes like Syria. They brought in by Angela Merkel, the communist hater of German men. And one million of these swore the Muslims were put into Germany. And now they've emerged into some of the most terrifying gangs in Germany. Even Yahoo news, which is so left wing. You don't even have to say Yahoo. Yahoo. Mountain dew is writing Muslim Berlin crime gangs of Arab origin. Have longed earned infamy with violence and brazen robberies. But now police one they have targeted new generation of refugees for recruitment, and you read on in the story, and you read about the Arabic Arabic extended families with their patriarchal struck codes of honor mythology is by rap artists. One Putin is banning rap music. Rap artists rap artists. My foot it's gang. Criminal. Propaganda. That's all rap is gang criminal propaganda music, and the TV shows that glorify these criminals. Well, the clans of jobs have sought out new members from among the over one million asylum seekers, you know, the ones who came begging for mercy. Oh, please. Let us in was so ragged and so tired and so poor. We just wanna come here and clean your sewers. We just want wanna mop up after you clean German people will do anything. Right, right. So they came in from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, and now they're rampaging across Germany selling drugs committing burglaries running prostitutes and doing hits for people. And undercover police investigator also told developed newspaper that above all it is the young physically strong men who are in the sights of the Arab clans or make them. Do the dirty work. Now, listen to the rest of this. How it's written by the left wingers at Yahoo news the migrant wave that peak three years ago sparked xenophobic backlash in Germany, don't you love how they put it. In other words, the Germans who are being raped and killed stood up and said, we don't want any more of them here anymore are called xenophobes. Don't you just love it is that the narrative you here in America. Those of us who stand up and say, no, Mark gangs. No more tattoos from Guatemala. No machete-wielding bums. No more drugs. Where's that a focus? So it makes you wonder who's funding the American left it makes you wonder who's funding? The most outspoken anti wall American politicians like Charles Schumer Hussein Hussein will you'll know you'll never have a war. It makes you wonder where the money might become coming from to spread the big lie that Americans who want to defend their. Home our lives from imported gangs of the most violent criminals the world has ever seen. Something not seen since the aspects. Cut the hearts out of their fellow Aztecs and rolled them down. Pyramids. Those of us who see exactly what's being imported was saying enough is enough electoral Trump, and he's done his best to build that wall. But who was the most outspoken against the wall why we know this Shaw Schumer who were the others who most outspoken against building that wall who want more of the machete-wielding immigrants who use women and children as their front women and children as their front pushing carriages to the wall making believe they're all coming here to do the dirty work who is on the democrat side who most does not wanna wall who wants this parallel society to get so big that the indigenous Americans, meaning you, and I are pushed out of our own. Who is building his parallel society or these parallel societies in the United States of America. Why they're Liberal Democrats? Why the Liberal Democrats want these parallel criminal societies emerging and growing in America? Why do they want the societies worthy of a mafia movie emerging in the United States of America? Why do they want these armies of violent young men in the United States of America? Why do they want more robbery and on more drug dealing why? Well, I'll let you figure out who's funding the Liberal Democrats. You always follow the money can never go wrong. So we'll have a conversation with you. I need to occasionally tell you a story. Right. That's my stock and trade. Nineteen Fifty-nine just from minute already talked myself out of this nostalgia. I had to explain what I was gonna do. Now. I don't wanna do it. Because once you get it's left brain, right brain. Do you understand that if for me to get into that styles? You I can't go back to left brain and explained what I'm doing. I should've just let the right brain dictate as this hypnotist said, you know, she has such an effect upon me. I said what are you hypnotist explained that was stuck in certain behaviors because that's our four year old, right brain. And she would help us talk to our four year old self in the right, brain and break the behavioral pattern. I thought that was brilliant. So I try to talk to the four year old self today. Got mad at me, man. Did it get angry and bit? I try to talk to early in the morning and leave me alone. I'm tired. So I got up forget I have to go to work. Meanwhile, the four year old still sleeping and the four year old and wanted to tell you a story about nine fifty nine. I think now joking. It's me, it's me. It's one. Ever dealt with the fact that you're multiple personalities, and you're afraid of them. That's another topic. I I'd love to talk about that. Because if you read Shakespeare. Now, this is particularly people who drop acid of smoke a lot of marijuana. And you split yourself into all these personalities, and you get frightened many people don't understand. But that's who you really are all these things and the dominant personality that you create the lead horse may not even be you. It's the one you chose to lead the pack of horses that are raging inside your brain and your cell. So do you understand what I'm saying? I know some of you do so you're getting the rest of your frightened the reading the meatballs and spaghetti crowd left. The left the theater they went to war banger. If you read Shakespeare, and you see all the different characters that Shakespeare put into a single play from the fool to the king and many in between those were personalities that he was calling upon within his own self the understand that. So in other words, you yourself all human beings in their full totality of your being have many personalities within you from the fool to the king as you. Well know, I've been a puppet a poet a poor per a king. What do you think lyrics like that come from some poor sad songwriter? Busted out in a hotel room in Palm Springs writing about a loss love probably. And she sits there and drinks himself into oblivion and writes this great song. I'm I've been a puppet a poet a corporate king of an up and about where do you think that came from? How can a guy right? I've been a puppet of poor poor poet a king because he's been all of those things and he's been around then he understands that we're all those things so going back again to the multiple personality one day, you'll come to realize so it's like you are the driver of a train of horses. Pulling the carriage of your being, and let's say there's sixteen horses pulling you, but they're all bridal together. So you in charge of those horses have to become the dominant personality of those other personalities, and that's how you get through life. As you drive yourself at the personality, you create, but that may not be you say that's the evolving idea of self in the world in which we live, and we are evolving in a certain way to the idea who we really are by studying all these other b-. Being's or things that are plaguing us. So what happens to society that gets frightened of these multiple personality feelings in themselves, they drugged themselves. And they have put out the voices. So men start drinking. They don't wanna hear those voices. They wanna they wanna just they wanna kill those voices. And only want to have that one thought structure leads to disaster or they drugged themselves dragging the voices out. You get what I'm saying? So when you come to understand that you realize how creative you actually can be if you tap into the multiplicity of your b. Things then you'll understand how wonderful you are as being I know this sounds a little new agey for a lot of rednecks out there and a lot of rigid. Wall types, you know, like I can talk about the wall because I know we need a wall. But if I only talk about the wall, what am I see that's a joke. That's a joke within a joke. If I'm only for the war. Only for the wall who am I then I'm a wall bangers? I mean, that's the whole you gotta so what I'm saying is if I were on stage right now, and you're a little ripped you'd love me. But right now since it's talk radio, you don't know what I'm talking about. That's the problem. So you have to revert back to the standard Mueller Flynn Mueller. Flint Flint Trump throwing a Trump Mueller. Nineteen Fifty-nine catskill mountains, New York. Shanks paramount hotel the casino. After the dining room, serving the pigs. Again, they have six meals a day for the two week vacation six meals a day cooked and prepared for them. And then it wasn't enough food for most of these people would go into the coffee shop after for little snack at midnight. If you can believe how people eight knows no wonder they died of heart attacks in their forties and fifties. So I was a kid worked in the coffee shop you see before I got the big job in the dining room as a waiter or busboy that took years to get that job. And you get the guys coming into the dining room the beginning of the season. May you've seen it movies. Maybe they really warm in like this. They'd be there for the week. They're going to be able to wife and kids and they say kid, what's your name? Michael, Michael, let me show you some they pull out like a twenty dollar Bill. They'd ripped the twenty dollar Bill in half. And they say here's half of if you if you take real good care Bernie me Bernie shorts in the wife. You'll get the other half of this twenty at the end of the week. I right. And if you think it didn't happen, you mistaken did the man who actually did things like that. But if I ever tell you what went on behind the scenes from some waiters and busboys, and what they did to the food to people like that, you wouldn't want to know it you wouldn't want to hear the story off to save that for. Broadcast. I mean, I wouldn't do stuff like that. But some of these guys were really bad. The things they would do to that Finn, orange juice. Go forget about it. I guy he's sick. He wound up selling belts in the garment center. A nutjob the war crazy people, and they did terrible things to the customers, and they'd smile when they reserve them the juice with that thin glass with the extra juice, and if the guy was breaking their their back a little bit.
