A highlight from Rising Auto Theft Rates: Urban Consequences and Solutions
"Well, you see how easy this is now. Now you look at how they move money around and how the in your face money laundering folks, this is what this is. This is corruption and fraud. Some of the Bidens are great at the money laundering part. They got 20 shell corporations, but guess who's getting the guess who's going to be controlling the funding to rebuild Ukraine. We pay to destroy it. And guess what? The Hillary Clinton Foundation gets paid the rebuild Welcome right. to the podcast. We are in the same studio today, which is kind of nice. So thanks again for downloading. If you're just listening, if you're watching or watching the clips, uh, thanks for watching as well. And just for a quick mention, so I don't forget, if you haven't downloaded our app yet, I'm noticing we're getting a lot of downloads and the cool thing is when the morning Mike's program is going Monday, Wednesday, Friday, I'm the, seeing the view count go up and up and up, which is awesome. So I know we're only, you know, we're still in the dozens. I'd like to get into the hundreds and eventually thousands, um, but it's a cool program. If you haven't listened to it, it's a quick 15 minutes to quick by morning, run down three days a week of the top five topics, three minutes each. Do a great job. They do an awesome job when we're, when we fill in the stuff. We screw the whole thing up. Yes. Yeah. We, we blow the whole, the whole, uh, the schedule, but, um, but they do awesome and they're funny. I love it. It's a quick, you know, down and dirty 15 minutes, top five items of the day. And now you get your day started off on the, uh, they, you know, I think on the right foot, they were saying this week, like, Oh, it's so negative all the time, but I think they're hilarious. They take the negative stuff that's going on, but of course the negative stuff isn't the news. Yeah. Yeah. That's what we're seeing. I mean, carjackings again, Rochester had another, you know, record night. I mean, it's incredible how that was going on. And so it's amazing is, is like the Democrats just sit around and watch this happen in every city and every city. It's insane. Yeah. I sent you an article earlier this morning about Philadelphia. Let's see. I can find it. It's, uh, not that it's anything out of, you know, anything that we don't know about, but let's see here. Philadelphia swarmed by alleged juvenile. Come on, come on. Juvenile looters targeting the Apple store, Lulu lemon and footlocker. Yeah. So, cause they're starving. They're starving. They just, just need a little piece of ham and some Turkey. They need clothes and food. That's, that's only fair. I mean, they, you know, and once again, I know we've all heard this joke, but footlocker is not missing one pair of working boots. No, no, all the Nike's, all the Nike. Yeah. Well, some of those Nike's, I mean, Oh my God. Crazy. You know, talking about like, you know, thousands of dollars for a pair of, thousands, thousands of dollars. I was talking to my daughter and she said to one, one of her friends has a, as a pair of shoes were $1 ,200. I'll never forget the most expensive pair of shoes I ever bought. We were just starting a business. This was like 30 years ago now. Right. Crazy to think. And I remember somebody told me that maybe my dad was like, you got to have a decent pair of shoes. Right. And so I went up and I bought a pair of Justin and Murphy's. They're like 120 bucks at the time. Yeah. The most money I have ever spent on a pair of shoes. Now boots, I've spent more money on since because boots are more expensive, you know, hunting boots. Well, there's a purpose to them. I still don't spend more money on shoes. Like I'm wearing like Skechers or like $40. Like some of these Nike's $500. You can't tell me you're running faster. It's different when you're going to go out and buy a pair of like waders or something. You're going to use them. First of all, you're going to use them for the next 30 years. Right. And there's a purpose to them, right? Like, okay, they're more expensive, but I can walk through the water with them. Right. But if I bought like, if I had five, 600 hour pairs of shoes, I'd be afraid to leave the house. I wouldn't, I wouldn't get off the carpeting. Well, they're targeting the Apple store here, Glenn, because they'll buy jobs. And that's the only way to get a job is to make sure you've got an Apple iPhone. So it'll be like Chicago. We talked about this the other week with, with, uh, with Mike Speraza, Chicago is now forced to open or, or just talking about opening, you know, a, a government run grocery store in the inner city because they've all that. Well, they're going to, so they're going to, they're going to, the plan is to fight the communism with more kind of communism, right? That's going to work really well. But could you imagine how inefficient, first of all, Walmart's pulled out, Costco's pulled out, all the stores have pulled out because now target, have you heard targets now closing stores across the country? So target is now going through and discussing all the stores across the country, liberal target, liberal target. They put a black lives matter that they ripped down the smash of the window. I thought that'd be some sort of a shield or that we're just going to put up this, uh, this plywood and we're going to spray black lives matter on it. Hashtag hashtag BLM. And we'll be safe as they rip it out and use that same plywood to smash the window with. It's pathetic. There'll be nothing left in these inner cities. The problem is when it starts to spill over into the, into the, Oh yeah. This is, this is where it gets ugly. Well, they want it. That's what they want. That's, that's why people like, uh, the governor of New York, uh, you know, Kathy, the ice queen, Kathy Hochul is, is, you know, they first tried the push for section eight housing in the suburbs because that was only fair. Yeah. Now they couldn't get that through because the people in the suburbs are like, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Now they're busing in illegal immigrants in the middle of the night. And I tell you something, if these Democrats like Mark Poland cars were proud of what they were doing, they would have a welcoming party at noon at noon, high noon. They'd have a press conference welcoming our newest community members off the bus so that the whole community could see these family units that are getting off. You got the husband, the wives, the two kids, you know, the things that we see in our country, right? No, it's not happening. They're bringing them in at two o 'clock in the morning. So nobody sees, they're all, they're all 23 year old males, right? Or 18 to 25 year old males. Some of which are from the Congo. I don't know about the, uh, you know, the, some of the social norms in the Congo, but I'm just thinking that maybe they're a little bit different than the Western world. I don't know. I'm just thinking maybe not. Maybe they're exactly like us. I don't know. But they're exactly like us. Why would they want to come here? Why are they aspiring to come here? I don't know. Anyway, it's a fentanyl fentanyl up again, by the way, there was another report. I think it was on a Fox news. Well, good for the Republicans. I mean, at least part of them, I should say good for the five or six Republicans that are the extreme right wing, according to the media, that's holding this garbage up. No, shut the government down, shut it down, shut it down until there's no more money. Take the money, go into Ukraine and send it to Texas, which they did right to the border, which they didn't do last time. Right. Kept it open. That's what do you need? What do you need? We're out of control. The founding fathers gave the power of the purse to Congress and the, and the Pentagon, the Pentagon goes, yeah, you know what? We're just going to exempt Ukraine funding from the budget. So ha ha. We just went over 33 trillion. If you go online and look at the clock, it's moving fast, right? So we're on our way to 34 or 35. Can you even see the numbers anymore? They just blur blur now. So, so fast. Oh no. And, and good news, by the way, we're refinancing this debt at 5 % now, not at 1 % or zero like we were doing. Yeah. It makes a lot of sense. Yeah. It'd be great. Yeah. The fence talk about keeping rates higher for longer. I don't know. They're not going to be able to do that. They'll be cutting interest rates by next year. Mark by where? And the number one reason I say that is because when you talk to every economist, I say, that's not going to happen. And they are typically wrong. So if you take the, it's like saying betting against the casino, it's like saying, you know what? I don't think MGM is going to make money in the sporting books next year. Ma, they're going to figure out a way to make money. They'll rechange the lines, right? Well, you, all you need to do is look at it and get a bunch of economists in a room and ask them where they think the market's going to be and then do just the opposite and you would be way better. Yeah. Pretty much that's usually the way to go. No doubt about it. So the, the, the, the Pelosi, we were talking earlier about the Pelosi stock trader. Yeah. You can follow online. Now, some of these folks, we did the game show game last week. We talked about the, uh, the net worth. I picked the poor ones too. They were like 23, 21, you know, $20 million. Some of these folks are amazing. I mean, really just, you know, the wizards of smart on some of these are just really, timing is impeccable up here. This is somebody who is selling some software that I'll track it, which you can, you, you've pointed out, you can get it for free online, but, but the, the numbers are really astonishing. This Democrat Senator sold her Aspen vacation home for $25 million. That was just after she sold her Lake Tahoe vacation house for $36 million. Well, by the way, why, why do they own these big $25, $36 million homes? Well, a big, big part of it is because the taxation of it, right? So a Feinstein who's telling you your ordinary income tax rates are too low. She's shifting that to a capital asset, which is going to create a capital gain in the future or no gain. Or no gain. I mean, they're 10, 10 31. This is why when Donald Trump looked at Hillary Clinton right in the eye and said, you will not get rid of the carry interest deduction and you know it because all of your, I use it, of course, all of her bigger donors donate money to Hillary Clinton. And this is exactly the truth, right? They will never get rid of some of these things. Like they talked about, we're going to get rid of the 10 31 exchanges. Yaha. Yeah. Uh huh. Yeah. So the big developer strokes a giant check to the, to the Democrats off the table. Let's listen to her success though. Amazing. A Senator sold her Aspen vacation home for $25 million just after she sold her Lake Tahoe vacation house for $36 million. Only two years earlier, Diane Feinstein has been a member of the political scene for 32 years and her salary is only $130 ,000 per 130 grand a year. Now it's more now. That's a little bit dated, but it's up, it's up to probably 180 now. But, but listen to this. First of all, if it was up to 580, you're not buying $23 million homes, $36 million homes. No, no, we're going to put in multiple homes. We're going to, we're going to put the Paul Pelosi onto our research committee. You make a million dollars a year. First of all, most of, most business owners that make that kind of money, they didn't make it throughout their whole life, right? They didn't start making a million dollars at 20 years old. They started making a million dollars at 50 years old and it took 30 years to get to that point. Right? So my point is, you're not at a million dollars a year at age 50. If you did it the right way, the hard way, and you did it yourself, you're still not affording a $23 million home, right? Multiple ones. Yeah. Multiple, multiple. Right. Those aren't even her primary residence. Those are her vacation homes. She lives in, she lives in California. Listen to this though. And it's, it's all of them. It's all of them now. This is a, this is from Nancy Pelosi, stock trader. Uh, this is a tweet, uh, a Twitter feed. You can follow Pelosi tracker is what it's supposed to track or underline or something like that. You'll find it. Anyway, uh, three weeks ago, sitting politician bet against the U S economy so far. He's been right. Tom Carper bought $45 ,000 of PSQ and inverse ETF on the tech sector on eight 23, August 23rd. Since then he's plus 3 % while the market is negative 4%. Go figure. Wow. Go figure. Man, these guys are so good. Yeah. And they're not by, they're, I mean, these are, that's some pretty technical strategy. You started getting into options strategies and stuff. I mean, yeah. Yeah. These guys have become very, very slick. It's not just about buying a, you see, it used to be, okay, I'm going to buy X, Y, Z. Then I'm going to vote for or against something. You know, I'm going to short the stock and then I'm going to vote against them for both that, that, that. So the stock goes down or I'm going to vote for something, knowing that it will benefit the company. The stock will go up and in a sense front running. No, they're, they're in the options strategies now. They're in the market. Yeah. They're doing butterfly spreads. Yeah. Crazy stuff going. They're very sophisticated. They shouldn't be allowed to two things. When you go into Congress, I, you know, I would love to have a Congress person run on or present around the following platform, right? Number one, term limits, term limits, top of the list. Number two, though, while you're in Congress for the eight years, or wherever we allow you to serve 10 years, 12 years, whatever it is, you could not invest in a stock market at all. All your investments are frozen or your choices, a model, some kind of a model liquidated go to cash, or you could buy the fidelity balance to counter. You could buy the, you could buy the T -rope price, you know, target retire, whatever, you know, or you go to goes into a blind something or other where you have no idea. Right. It just goes into what you picked a one through five tolerance for risk and somebody else invest. Maybe it's just broad indexing. Maybe that's it. Right. Something that doesn't allow this kind of garbage to go on where, you know, they buy, you know, Tesla stock and then approve a huge, you know, oh, we're going to, guess what? We're going to build a, you know, for government funded battery stations all the country. Of course, Elon comes out and goes, we already got those, you idiots. I did that like four years ago, you morons. Amazing what Elon can do and what the, what the government can. Going back to target for just a second, not to digress, but I found WGRZ, thankfully came up with a list of the, uh, the target stores that will be closing, Mike, the full list of locations all in, all in Republican run. You'll be shocked. Yeah. Yeah. Right in the, uh, the thriving, the, uh, you know, thriving, the Minneapolis, uh, location, the retailer said the decision, the close was really difficult. I wonder if that was after half. That was the one they put the BLM on. Yeah. Oh, that was the one they put the sign on that said, please don't burn our store down. We love you. I hashtag BLM lit it on fire. Yeah, that's right. Yeah. Uh, let's see. I'm shocked though. I wouldn't, I'm surprised you wouldn't stay. I mean, you know, like just collecting, you love them. You love, you support them. This is what you supported. Remember you, you, you raised money, you gave money. Yeah. And guess what they did with that money. They agitators hired to whip up people in the community to smash and burn down your store. You idiots. So there you go. There you go. Nice, nice work. What else do you think, Mike? Uh, New York city's East Harlem neighborhood. That's going to be one that's goes down. I wonder why. Chicago, San Francisco for sure. San Fran. Yeah. San Fran. Uh, by the way, before I forget San Fran, Democrat San Francisco mayor, announces plan to require drug testing, which is good in an effort to, if you're going to receive homeless benefits. Right. But the funny thing was in this same passage, they're going to Texas to try to recruit police officers. The funny thing is is that the people they sent from San Francisco to try to recruit people. They didn't come back. They defected like North Koreans. Some of them got jobs. They get over the wall. They come out, they get over the wall. It was hilarious. No, they didn't go back. Well, the other five stores, Mike, three in Portland, Oregon and two in Seattle, five, three in Portland. They're pulling out of Portland together. All of these inner cities folks will be food deserts. You're going to hear that term. It'll be business deserts. It'll be nothing. Well, business deserts, nothing left, but there'll be, but target, don't forget target. Does target sell food? Yeah. Well, yeah. They sell food. Yeah. For sure. Yeah. Well, I don't go on target. So Walmart I know does Costco for sure. Costco is a food store. I don't think target is as big as Walmart as far as like fresh fruit, but definitely frozen food, all that kind of stuff. You know, aisles of pop and water and chips and right, right, right. And all that kind of stuff. But you can definitely frozen food. You can buy bulk frozen food there. So, so there's going to be food deserts, all over the place, business deserts, whatever you want to call them. You know, it's amazing because you know, the, there's no policing. And the sad thing is that is the problem. It's not, there's no policing. I shouldn't say that. Excuse me. No, you're policing your asses off. I get it. There's no ability. There's no prosecution. There's no bill. You guys are arresting people, putting them in and they go right back on the street. They're getting, they're getting appearance tickets. It's a joke. Your point is no, there is no policing anymore because of the system, the Democrats put together where the police officers aren't going to bother. If you're a police officer and you know that somebody is going to be this, this carjacking or whatever is robbery. And you know that there's a potential, you're going to get an altercation where you're in New York state. There's two police officers that have been brought up on charges recently with almost a hundred percent chance that if you do catch that person, that person will be right back. Yeah. A hundred percent. Why would you bother? Why would you bother? You're not going to put your life in line. No way. You want to go home to see your wife and kids too, and your mother or your husband or whatever. You want to be able to spend your Christmas with your family. Why would you do that? And they know that, right? The Democrats know that. This is, you can't be this stupid. I mean, who allows these people to go right back on the streets and say, this is a good idea without correcting this right away. You can say, okay, bail reform. Our intentions were one thing, but when you look at the fact that in New York state, we are now breaking records in towns like Rochester and Buffalo for the most amount of vehicles being stolen. We can say, okay, look at bail reform, put it in place. It clearly did not work. It's been a total disaster. These towns have turned to shit. We absolutely need to go back in the other direction. They're not doing that. They don't care. They want to, and they're doubling down, tripling down on it, tripling down. We invited this liberal on, you actually were on the show with him and he said, things are actually safer since bail reform. That's what his argument was. His argument was, and by the way, his argument was if we have even less police officers, cities like Buffalo will get safer. Well the thought was less police officers, less arrests. Less arrests means less crime. Dude, you got the whole thing backwards, bro. And not only that, but now we know that, right? Now we know, now you can, I mean, literally auto thefts are up 360 % in Rochester. They're not up 3%. You can say, well, you know, in Buffalo and we're in second place. And they can't play, they can't play in COVID. They're trying to like, well, it was a lockdown. People were at pent up, whatever. Remember that was the, that was the reason for the rioting and the ballooning and burning like, well, people had a lot of pent up. We probably should have locked them down. That was a little bit of the reason for the increase in suicides. You guys, you guys increased suicides because you locked kids in their homes, but it wasn't the reason that they went and decided to steal Nike sneakers from a footlocker. So check this out. Speaking of COVID, this is huge. This is, I don't know if you saw this or not, but this is absolutely ginormously huge. Dr. Fauci was smuggled into CIA headquarters without a record of entry where he participated in the analysis to influence the agency's COVID -19 investigation according to the house select subcommittee on the coronavirus pandemic. Did he need to do much with these left -wing CIA agents? Probably not. No, no, no. That's what they're smuggling him in for. Well they smuggled him in because they didn't want anybody to know that he was part of the PSYOP operation, which was hydroxychloric. By the way, the I think it was a Mayo clinic and some other hospitals now have come out as well as the CDC and said hydroxychloroquine, yes, indeed is an effective treatment for COVID. Oh, by the way, ivermectin also an effective treatment. The CDC now approving that. Now mind you, we're going to keep in mind that if there was any other treatments that couldn't get the emergency use authorization for these vaccines that clearly don't work. Amazingly, I'm still seeing people online go signing off my sixth booster on our way for the sixth shot, proud to get our sixth shot. How about how about one the other day, local left -wing nut job got her sixth booster shot, six shot and she still got COVID and then she said, well, I was so good hiding and it got all my shots and then I went to a concert and I got it at this concert. Well, first of all, you don't know that, but second of all, if you have six shots and you six shots and you still got COVID and you actually think that was a good idea, you don't need a vaccination. You need a mental, you need a mental check. I tell you, I know people during the during the COVID, the height of the COVID that were older, some of our clients actually that were prescribed by a doctor a hydroxy quirk when they were taking it once a week as a as a preventative measure. Yeah. And they, to this day have never had COVID. Yeah. And it's, it's, I mean, so it, but the sad thing is again, you know, we couldn't, it's all about the money now. And that's, you know, when people talk about the evils of capitalism, you're seeing some of that. Now, capitalism is the best thing on the planet, right? As far as, you know, lifting the masses out of poverty and creating amazing amounts of wealth. But the problem is this isn't, this isn't capitalism. What's going on. This is cronyism is what's going on. It is, Hey, look at, I will give you these government dollars. You're going to get this patent. You're going to get this. Unholy marriage between business and government. Mark my word. We were talking about Feinstein selling 25, $30 million homes. This Fauci will be on the board of Pfizer. He'll be on the board of Moderna. He's going to get shares of those companies. He will be blessed with with with millions and millions of dollars. His family watch and see, we'll be talking if we're, if you and I are fortunate enough to be around 20, 30 years from now, we'll be talking about the Fauci trust and watch and monitor that trust and see how big that family trust. Well, you see how easy this is now. You look at how they move money around and how the in your face money laundering folks. This is what this is. This is corruption and fraud. Some of the Bidens are great at the money laundering part. They got 20 shell corporation, but guess who's getting the, guess who's going to be controlling the funding to rebuild Ukraine. We pay to destroy it. And guess what? The Hillary Clinton foundation gets paid to rebuild it. Right. And guess who's going to get the contracts to rebuild. Oh, that'll be probably one of the Biden family members or somebody else's politically connected. Right. Remember it was, it was a Joe Biden's brother who got the contract, the multi -billion dollar contract to rebuild Iraq. No building experience, never been a contractor, right? No idea. Right. This is why these projects cost 500 times what they're supposed to cost. This is why when money comes into Buffalo, for example, $25 million to build homes, five get built. And you were, wait a minute, five, are these $5 million homes in the East side? Each of those homes would have been built for a quarter million dollars or less. And yet where did the rest of the money go? And the, the answer is never, we don't know. We don't know. We can't account for it. Or we'd have no idea. Or I mean, how many times have we've seen that in so many places that whether right down the local level or God forbid at the federal level between, you know, Iraq and others. I was telling you last week on the radio, I was reading an article about the grants that were coming into the city of Buffalo to plant trees. And I thought, okay, wow, like this could be sweet. Okay. You know, like I'm a big tree guy. I love trees. I plant trees every year. I do think, okay, that's one way to, first of all, I think it's one way to make a community look great. When you, when you drive around, let's say North Buffalo, all the streets are all tree. They look beautiful. You drive around the East side, it looks like shit, right? So, okay. You're going to take some of my tax money and you're going to directly plant trees. Okay. It's a win for the environment. It looks nice. It's going to bring things together. I'm like, well, where's the catch? This is a government agency. Where are they going to screw it up? You read through and you find out that they're paying $1 ,000 a tree. Now you and I both know that if they're saying it's $1 ,000 a tree, by the time it's done, it'll be two to $3 ,000 a tree. Now you, you're talking about $13 million worth of trees. You and I just planted trees. Every year we plant a few trees around our office, you know, three, four in the spring, three, four in the fall, just so they can start to grow and work their way in. And then, you know, plant more. We pay $250 a tree, plant it. Right.
Fresh update on "poland" discussed on News and Perspective with Tom Hutyler
"Seattle at 215. Newsradio 1000 FM 97 .7 your information sponsored station by Muckleshoot Casino. Our editor Bill O 'Neill as we take a look at top these headlines I'm Rick Van Sise in Seattle the number of striking workers in the US is growing 75 thousand Kaiser Permanente workers walked off the job today in multiple states in what is gearing up to be the largest health care strike in US history the King County Council releasing a statement condemning hate speech after online public comments disrupted a committee meeting with racist and anti -semitic slurs the council says it supports the public's first amendment rights but does not tolerate hate at the start of the war in Ukraine support from the public and politicians for the Ukrainian effort was widespread and bipartisan now more than a year and a half after the Russian invasion support is slipping. Scott Clement is the polling director for the Washington Post and spoke with Northwest News Radio's Van Taylor Zeiss the numbers that you're examining they came from the Chicago Council on Global Affairs I wonder as a polling expert what struck you first when you started to look at the numbers? Well the Chicago Council has been measuring opinions on these really since the weeks after the invasion started they have a really nice trend line in what people have thought over the course of the war. One thing that really struck me is how the war has gone on as you described opinions on the issue have gotten more partisan and Republicans have generally become supportive less of sending additional arms and military supplies to the Ukrainian government. They've also changed their overall perspective on the war. And the poll comes out at a really consequential time for Ukraine. Military aid for their efforts is at the heart of of the some budget negotiations there in Washington DC. How do these Chicago council numbers of the public compared to what we're hearing from members of Congress? Sure. So Democrats have generally been heavily supportive and even most Republican lawmakers in Washington have been supportive, continuing to support Ukraine. Quibbles about the amount, you know, of funding and where it should go and also what type of scrutiny. But generally the idea of continuing to support Ukraine has a lot of support among leaders. Where there has been though is some of those arguments against helping Ukraine have gained traction on the right and including among independents. And so it's anywhere near a 50 -50 issue right now in terms of support for providing additional arms. But you see Republicans, for instance, basically 50 -50 on whether the US should provide more military support. Now what struck me most when I looked at this was the question about support for NATO. It's still quite strong, but Americans don't seem to be as supportive of all NATO nations equally. That's right, this is a new question we asked. So overall, you know, the long -term question, 77 % of people say the US should maintain or increase its commitment to NATO, very similar to previous years, down from a peak in 2022, but asked whether the US should send troops if Russia invaded Germany, 64 % say that. But if Russia were to invade a NATO ally like Latvia or Lithuania, then 57 % say that. And it's a pretty big partisan difference on that, so clear majority, similar percentages of Democrats say the US should defend allies, Germany as well as the Baltic nations. For Republicans, 64 % say the US should send troops to defend Germany if they're attacked, compared with 48 % for the Baltic nations. Really interesting thing you could tease maybe out with some social science questions there about your feelings about Germany compared to Lithuania, Latvia.

A highlight from Growing Unease: Current Administrations Approach to Security and Travel with David Bellavia
"What do you think they're doing with cash, right? What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? Yeah. What do you, it's, this is a state sponsor of terrorism. Ladies and gentlemen, distinguished guests and my fellow citizens. America's comeback now. starts right Welcome back Financial Guys podcast. Mike Speraza in studio live today with a guest in the studio. I haven't had this in a long time. Staff Sergeant medal of honor recipient David Bellavia joining me for about a half hour today. David, thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. I appreciate it. Absolutely. So I'm going to stick based on your background. I'm going to stick with a lot of military stuff today and I want to start, we'll go all the way back to the beginning of the Joe Biden presidency. The Afghanistan withdrawal, in my opinion, did not go very smoothly. I'm sure many people listening agree. What were your overall thoughts of that withdrawal and how it actually ended up happening? I know we lost, you know, sadly lost 13 soldiers in that, in that withdrawal. People say we went off the wrong air base. People say that we shouldn't have gone out in the middle of the summer. There was a lot of different things there. What were your overall thoughts on that? I think it's like the worst day in American history since Market Garden. Just absolutely. And the reason why it was so difficult was it was totally unnecessary. So let's rewind to the Obama trade, Bull Bergdahl and the three first round draft picks. They get Marshall, they get MacArthur and they get Patton that end up the resurgence of the Taliban. These men not just go back to the enemy, they go back to the battlefield. They're in power when the government falls. You have misinformation coming from the White House that the president of Afghanistan is leaving with billions of dollars on his plane, which wasn't true. And then you leave the equipment, the cash. There's no recovery. We're getting reports of sales of American equipment left in Afghanistan in Southeast Asia. We're moving material across the globe. Our children will fight and pay and have to atone for these miscalculations. Let's talk about that. You being in the military and you knowing that area too, why did they just find it the easiest way out to just say, you know, just leave that billion dollar billions of dollars of equipment there and not think, again, if it was me and I'm speaking that someone that's never been in the military, but if it's me and I'm the president, I'm thinking, OK, I don't want to leave all our weaponry there. I don't want to lose any of my men. Number two. And number three, I want to make sure that everybody knows when and how we're getting out of there. And it just felt like poof. One day they said we're getting out of here. Well, it's because the military didn't make any of those decisions. I mean, look, Millie, it can criticize him. You can criticize Secretary of Defense worthy of criticism. However, none of these individuals are making decisions. This is about NGOs on the ground. This is about the State Department. So you've got Bagram Air Base, the equivalent of JFK. You've got Karzai International Airport, the equivalent of Teterboro. Right. Why would you ever do an exfil out of Karzai International Airport? It makes absolutely no sense. It's tactically unsound. But and then you've got all the ISIS -K. We retaliate from the murder of 13 of our bravest and we drop a bomb on a guy delivering water. He's on our payroll and we kill children on that. Then we take out Borat on a tuk tuk driving around like that wasn't even really what was happening. It's just a den of lies. And Tony Blinken and Jake Sullivan, all the heroes that brought us, you know, the Bergdahl deal, the Iran nuke deal. This is these. They the State Department is running all foreign policy, including what the DOD used to run. Well, that's I was going to say. I mean, I know Biden's the president, but do you blame him at all or is it everybody underneath him that, you know, maybe was giving him bad information? And again, some of these decisions, David, is Biden even involved in some of these decisions? Like, I don't even know anymore. Is he around? Is he paying attention to anything going on? Well, I mean, just from the press conferences, it was apparent he didn't know what was going on. And the great irony is that they actually were predicting that Ukraine was going to be invaded and, you know, no one believed them. So it's like you can't influence your friends. The allies don't trust you. The enemy doesn't respect you. You know, I mean, you've got Ben Rhodes is really proud of this State Department. Susan Rice loves what they're doing. But, you know, again, Americans died. And, you know, and what is the perfect culmination of the adventure in Afghanistan? Looking at your watch at Dover Air Base when bodies are coming home. I mean, nothing could you couldn't ask for a just it's it's a debacle. Yeah. And it's sad that that's that's the leader of our country there. Let's move in. You brought up the Ukraine there. So the Russia Ukraine conflict will get to Zelensky in a minute. He is as we speak in New York City right now. But so Trump's in office. We don't see many of these conflicts or any conflicts actually started under his watch. And then we have the Biden administration come in. And a year later, we have Russia invading Ukraine. Why did this happen and why? Why the timing of February of 2022? So let's go back to when we were fighting ISIS. Trump engaged and destroyed estimated some say 300 members of Wagner forces. But those were Russian nationals. We engaged. We destroyed them. What was the response from Putin? Nothing at all. So what do people in that section of the world, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, what do they respect? They respect power. They respect authority. You're not going to get any respect if you don't engage the enemy when they present themselves. I don't understand the calculus of again, I'm trying hard to figure it out. I don't get it. I don't. You know, Romania and Hungary and Poland, you're letting them unilaterally decide whether or not they want to send reinforcements into Ukraine. That's an act of war. If NATO members engage the enemy, all of NATO is engaged against the enemy. Poland doesn't unilaterally make that decision. Hungary and Romania don't unilaterally make that decision. We can't even articulate what the mission is. And if you look, go to the Institute for the Study of War, there's a plug for them. Check out their overlay from when the battle started, when the war started with Russia. And tell me what success this offensive in Ukraine has produced. I mean, let me ask this question, because I get confused. The answer is nothing. I asked this on Twitter, X, whatever it's called, all the time. What is the end game and how do we get there? Because all I see the answer is, hey, just blank checks. Hey, just write a check. Hey, here's a billion. Hey, here's 20 billion. Hey, here's another 10 billion. I don't actually see a look. I mean, like anything, right? If I write a business plan of what I want to do in 2024, my goal is X. I write down my steps to get X. I don't just write down X and say it's going to happen. I don't really know. And then the answer always is, well, we have to fight. We have to back Ukraine. Okay. But when does that end? Because the Afghanistan war and the war in Iraq lasted 20 years plus, right? And was there a real end to it? I don't know. That's where it gets frustrating for me, Dave, where I'm like, how do we know what the end game is? Do you win or lose? When does that happen? I don't know. I don't know. At least you're thinking about it. And I have fear that our leaders aren't, and that's the problem. So here's what this comes out. You're going to get a negotiated settlement out of Ukraine, right? But you talked about the billions of dollars that we're spending and giving to Ukraine as a blank check. First of all, Zelensky visited Ukrainian soldiers in the United States. Did you know that there were wounded Ukrainian soldiers in the United States? I did not know that. Well, today he visited them. So what's happening there? So that's a cost that no one is putting on the ledger. So now let's look at the blank check that Ukraine is getting. And by the way, I'm pro Ukraine. I want to fight communists all day and night. So let's punch Putin hard in the face. However, you're giving them a blank check and you're giving them munitions. Now here's the problem. We have to replace those munitions. Those munitions were purchased for 20 year global war and terror. And let's be honest, inflation is involved. So what you purchased for $10 is now $17. So you're not just giving them the money. You're giving them the equipment and the munitions that you have to replace yourself at the value of what is valued today. We haven't scratched the surface for the amount of money. CBO absent at the wheel. No one is tracking this. 2024 can't get here fast enough. How does this work, though, when you talk about some of these NATO nations coming together and making decisions, but us not just giving weaponry, giving everything money, whatever we're giving there? Is that not an act of war, too, though, David, at some point? We're continuing to fund Ukraine continuing the war in Ukraine. I mean, that to me seems like we're backing a war. Well, I mean, by the letter of the law and NATO charter, it's not. But here's the problem. It's schizophrenic because we were told that what was an offensive weapon was going to mitigate, you know, that wasn't going to help peace at all. So we went from, I don't know if they should get tracked vehicles to I'm not sure an artillery piece is what they need to high Mars rockets being launched. And let's be honest. I mean, the Ukrainians are I mean, the payload that they're going through, what you would have to have cataclysmic casualty numbers to be able to to the spandex that they're doing on the ground that they need to replace Patriot. If you're going through thirty five Patriot to, you know, missiles, I would expect to at least the C 20 makes that are shot down. They're using them for air artillery. They're using there for indirect fire. I don't know what they're doing, but this is going to end with Don Boss going to Russia. This is going to end with that land chain that Putin wanted through Crimea. And again, our friends in NATO, what are they even doing for Ukraine? What? Look, if you they said that Trump wanted to kill NATO, Biden did it. Right. Biden did it. And now Germany. And so Putin was selling oil at thirty dollars a barrel. What's it at ninety six? Yeah. He's making more money than he did before. And he's financing a war and killing innocent people. You mentioned before, too, and I think this is a good point. Everybody on the left and I'll say the media, the establishment, whoever you want to say, says that if you don't agree with the war in Ukraine, you're like pro Putin. Right. And that's just the most outrageous thing in the world, because I agree with you. I feel for the people of Ukraine. I don't want this for them. I don't want this for innocent people. However, at some point, the world's every every one of the world's problems can't be America's problem when we have a border crisis. And then I think they said yesterday ten thousand people came across. They got, I think, eight thousand of the ten thousand. But you see the numbers day over day. It's a problem. We have crime that's rampant. We have overdoses that are at record numbers. We have we have suicides at record numbers. At some point, we have to maybe just think about ourselves and not everybody else, because if we fall, sadly, I think the world falls at that point. Amen. The thing that I would add is I love the way the Ukraine refugee has been crowbarred into the migrant crisis in the United States. New York leaders from the city to all over Kathy Hochul, the governor of the state of New York, mentioning that, you know, like the Ukrainians in Poland, the the Polish have no intention to keep Ukrainians forever. That's a temporary you know, they're leaving a conflict to return to their country after the conflict is over. Again, this is just we're we're putting a round peg into a square hole and just hammering it away. But but there's no the media. There's you're our destroying military. I go to parents all the time around this country and ask them to give us their sons and daughters to join the military. And the one thing they bring up is Afghanistan. It's not about anything. It's Afghanistan. How are you going to assure us that you're going to maintain your commitment to our son and daughter when you betrayed us in Afghanistan that has lasting effects? And there's not a I'm trying to find a segment of our of our of our nation that's functioning. I don't know what it is. I saw in Chicago, they're going to have municipally owned grocery stores. Maybe that will figure it out there. Yeah, yeah, it's good. Real quick, do you think and we'll finish up on this topic, but do you think that they will we will ever have boots in the ground on Ukraine? I mean, I hope not, because I just don't know what the I mean, look at I'm I'm we're getting ready for China. We're trying to revolutionize everything. I don't know what the what the plan is. I mean, again, if you want to put a base in Ukraine, and you want to make that a sustainment operation going forward, that I here's the point. I don't understand what the inactive ready reserve call up was for. Why are you bringing those troops in the non combat support? Why are they going to Ukraine? What are you building infrastructure there? Here's what I do know. We're talking a minimum of $11 trillion to build Ukraine back. That is cataclysmic amounts of money. There isn't water, electricity, internet, you know, you want to help Ukraine. You're going to Russia is not paying for that if you negotiate a settlement. So I don't know what the plan is. But I hope we never see boots on the ground. I could guess what the plan is. I won't I won't say for sure. But I could guess that we'll be paying a chunk of that. And I do have one last one. So I did interview Colonel Douglas McGregor a few months back. And he talked about he's a real optimist. But he is really very, very bullish on Ukraine. Yes, very, very optimistic. I'm dropping some all over the place. But he brought up some staggering numbers, though. And even if they're half true, it's a problem. The amount of casualties and wounded soldiers on the Ukrainian side that we're not hearing about the media. I don't know if you agree with some of those numbers or not. But he's saying, I mean, it's people are acting as if this is an even war right now. And it's not even close. First of all, McGregor's a stud. I mean, he's an absolute, you know, that we're glad he's on our side. He's a military mind. I don't know if those numbers are accurate. I could tell you they're juxtaposed to almost everything we're hearing from every institution that we have, including a lot of our intel from Germany and England. But again, I don't know what to believe. So when you don't have when you don't have transparency, when you're not holding regular press conferences, when your Pentagon spokesman is now working in the White House and now you're getting a triple spin. I mean, the U .S. Open double backspin. You've gotten so many spins on the narrative. I don't know what to believe. But if he is even close to what is a segment of truth, you know, then look, Ukraine needs an investigation. There's a lot of investigations. We've got to start on Afghanistan. We were promised that by Speaker McCarthy. We need a hot wash on Afghanistan. And then we need to go to what who is oversighting the money that's going to Ukraine. And what have we got for our return on investment? Yeah, I'm not asking for much. Really, all I'm asking for in this conflict is can we just talk about what the end game is? And to your point, can we get an accounting of where the money's going and what's being spent in a real accounting of it? The Iran deal that just happened last week. First off, the fact that that was negotiated and completed on 11th September to me is just the ultimate slap in the face. But you again, you know more about this than I do. We do a five for five trade. OK, I'm going to use sports analogies. We trade five for five. And then we also approved of six billion dollars that apparently wasn't ours, but it was in a fund that now they can release to Iran. How are we winning on that one? Well, first of all, I was hoping that at least it was a digital transfer. The fact that it went as euros in cash through Qatar. And OK, so what happens the 24 hours after that deal is made? We're now getting issues in the West Bank. We're now hearing about issues in Yemen. We've now got Hezbollah that's reinforced. I mean, look, what do you think they're doing with cash? Right. What deal do you make where someone says, I'll bring a box of money to you? What do you it's this is a state sponsor of terrorism. They haven't changed. By the way, their president is now in New York City addressing the United Nations. This guy's killed 6500 of his own people. He admits to it. He killed the students that revolted and wanted democracy when we did nothing. He killed 5000 of his citizens in 1988. He's killed over 300 Americans. There's no accountability whatsoever. I don't understand what it is about Jake Sullivan and Tony Blinken that believe that Iran is a partner. All you've done 10 years ago, they were refining 10 percent of their oil. And now they're a force. Now they're working with Maduro in Venezuela, and they're a huge part of their members of of the international community. They're in good standing there. I don't get it. Does anyone believe that the Iran nuke deal? Look, we got hit with cruise missiles under Trump in Iraq. How did they have those cruise missiles? Those cruise missiles were illegal under the Obama nuke deal. So how are you refurbishing missiles in two years? Do we believe that their centrifuges have stopped? That they won't have a program if they don't have one already? No, I mean, I guess my question, David, is how I mean, I know that you pay a lot of attention to this stuff, but how do people like in the media not ask these questions? Right. I mean, these are legitimate. I mean, we just traded to I put this on my notes here. This is on the heels of trading a WNBA basketball player for the Merchant of Death like six months ago. Right. I mean, and again, I'm glad Americans are coming back to America. I don't want to sound pessimistic on that. That's great news. But we also I mean, this this stuff just seems like I don't care what side of the aisle you're on. It warrants questions, but nobody seems to care. I'm in the world that if you take hostages, we take hostages. You want to exchange people? We'll exchange people. You know, we definitely have the partners in the area to do that. For whatever reason, this administration, they're they're they're contrarians. They're contrarians to you know, they claim Bush and Cheney are their best friends, yet they just go 180 degrees from that doctrine. I don't know what the Biden doctrine is. I don't know what Bidenonomics is either, but I could tell you that they believe that Iran is a partner. Now, here's another thing. Our envoy to Iran not only is no longer the envoy, he doesn't have a security clearance. Does anyone curious at The New York Times as to what happened to the lead negotiator in Iran that is escorted off a bus, taken into American custody, given a job at Yale or Princeton or wherever he's working now? I've never heard of a person going from top secret classified negotiations to no clearance whatsoever and in the custody of American intelligence community. No one cares. No one cares at all. It's fascinating. And again, for me, I mean, these are big decisions that we're making. And correct me if I'm wrong, but it used to be, you know, maybe we did a two for five deal and then we made the six billion. Now we're like, we're giving stuff away and we're on the losing end. Correct me if I'm wrong, but America was never, you know, America losing. It was always America winning, right? America getting the best of deals. At least McDonald's has a five for five. We didn't even get that. You know what this does though? Honest to God, if you're thinking about traveling overseas, things go sideways, cartel, South America, Mexico, wherever you're going, you have a price in your head now. No one in their right mind is going to bring you back whether it's Haiti or wherever you are, you're worth $1 .25 billion. And thugs and scumbags are going to take advantage of that. I mean, that's a great point too. Do you think about leaving the country? I don't know anymore. That's a little bit concerning. I don't care where you're going, right? That's concerning. This one I just had to bring up because it happened two days ago or yesterday. How do we lose a plane? And I heard that's like a third one in the last six weeks that something like this has happened. How are we losing $80 million planes? Well, they're not $80 million anymore because they've got a new engine and all this other stuff. Look, the F -35 program is a complete disaster. You want to talk about why our allies think we're crazy. We sold them a plane. This program has been around since the early 90s and we've got nothing on return for it. So basically two planes are flying in a buddy team. They're doing training and a guy punches out. We don't even know why he punched out, but that plane could have easily hit a building. It didn't, thank God. But the wingman didn't follow where his buddy went. So what is he doing? He just kind of went on and did his own thing. And now the Marine Corps put a Facebook post like a dog is missing. We're expecting the Ukrainian farmers to carry the F -35 out with their tractors. I don't know what the point of it's wild. Look, stop embarrassing us. Just stop humiliating us. That's all I'm asking. Just be the army and the Marine Corps that we know our men and women are capable of being. Get out of their way. This gender garbage, this social experiment nonsense, stop humiliating our military. That's all I ask. Why can we not get the... I mean, I know why we can't get the answer, but I'm asking this to you. But why can't we, at a press conference at the White House, why can't we say, I want to talk to the guy that was in the other plane, or you can tell us the transcript of what happened when that happened. Talk to the guy who jumped out of the plane. Why did you do that? And again, I'm not trying to put our military on the spot, but these are kind of big questions to ask, right? I mean, if I do something in my business, I have to go face the music on that. Why doesn't everybody have to face music for their decisions or why things are happening? I think it's kind of important. Well, you don't want to talk to generals because they're going to tell you the truth and they won't be generals anymore. True. And you don't want to talk to enlisted people. Because look, I mean, let's be honest. How many people are... Is this a merit -based military anymore? Do we have a meritocracy? Are we promoting people based on pronouns? Go figure. When we're putting politics above military strength, accidents happen. We don't know the facts, but the fact that nobody cares about getting to the bottom of it, the day of the Pentagon paper reporters are gone. Yep. Yep. Let's just talk about the 2024 race quick, and then we will wrap up for today. So your thoughts on the Republican primary so far, I'll stay away from the Democratic side till the very end, but your thoughts on, you know, there's obviously Trump who is now in a, has a huge lead. Ron DeSantis seems to be crumbling underneath himself. Vivek Ramaswamy has jumped up in the polls. Nikki Haley's there. Tim Scott's there. A few others that probably aren't going to get a lot of votes. Chris Christie's the anti -Trump candidate. Mike Pence is, I don't know what Mike Pence is. I'm not really sure. Your thoughts about the whole field so far? I mean, look, it's impressive. They've got a deep bench. There's a lot of diversity. I, you know, none of it matters. Trump is the guy. The more you indict him, the more you empower him. You know, I'd like him to work on his communications a little bit better. You know, but if Trump is Trump, Trump is a Frankenstein monster of Barack Obama. As long as you have that faction, you're going to get, you know, Trump is going to be empowered. I just don't want to see Governor Noem anywhere near the White House. And I, if he's going to pick a running mate, you know, it's hard to find an ally here, you know. But it would be nice to find a governor. I don't want to take anyone from the Senate. I don't want to take anyone from the House with the margins that tight. But I mean, the idea that Governor Noem is being floated right now. I mean, I'd rather take North Dakota. Yeah. A little sled there. You know, it's funny you mentioned that because I saw a lot of that this weekend. I mean, can we just, for lack of a better term, keep it in our pants for about a year and then do what you got to do? It really is. I mean, every time you turn, somebody's doing something idiotic, whether it's Boebert. And again, I say this, David, a lot of people know who you are. A lot more know who you are than they'll ever know who I am. But when you go out in public into a movie theater like that, and I'm going to Boebert, not Noem for a second, you're, you're extremely well known. I don't care if it's dark or if it's as light as it is in the studio right now. What are you thinking? I, you know, she's, she's, she's an embarrassment. She is. She's bad, too. Who would have thought that Marjorie Taylor Greene would have been the, the oasis of the Maryland? I mean, seriously, I, again, you're, you're in Congress every day. You're out in public, you're on the job. You know, at least she wasn't wearing a hoodie, you know, that's all in shorts. She was at least dressed for the occasion, but I, it was, it's wildly embarrassing. Vaping, singing, whatever you're doing. Getting groped. Yes. Who is your VP candidate then? Because I think, you know, you have names thrown around. There's, there's, the vague has been thrown around in there. You know, Byron Donald's has been thrown around in there. Carrie Lake has. I don't know. I love Carrie Lake. I just don't know that Trump needs to go with somebody so divisive there. I think he's got to go with somebody that's, that's firm in their beliefs, but also not maybe going to turn off half the country. Well, you know, it's, it's impossible. One of the, one of the problems with making Trump, you know, the, the enemy of the state that the left has done is that you've really made it difficult for him to even put a cabinet together. You know, I mean, what are you going to do with it? You've got a lot of loyalists out there. You know, the vague is, is I think maybe the most intelligent dynamic candidate we've ever seen run for president, but experience does matter. But you know, I love the way he thinks. I love the movement. I don't know if he would even take the job to be honest with it. I don't think he needs it. But you look at a Tim Scott, I think Tim Scott is, you know, there's a whole lot to his message and I think he's, he's got the experience in the Senate, but honestly, you could literally take the Clint Eastwood chair and, and throw it in there as vice president. I'm going with that because this, this from top to bottom, we have to have seismic change in 24. Do you think he would ever choose Kristi Noem at this point with all that now? Yeah, no one knew Mike Pence was a, was a 24 hour story and then he was the vice president candidate. So who knows? I mean, a lot can happen between now and then, but I just, I don't need, you know, let's just pick people on their merit. Let's pick people that are ready to be the president. Imagine this, imagine picking a vice president that can lead the country. If something happens to a 75 year old president, you know, like Kamala Harris. Yeah. Someone like that.
Fresh update on "poland" discussed on The Aloönæ Show
"What place would you first travel to if you have the ability to teleport? Just space, not time or time and space? Either way, maybe both perhaps. OK. That is a good question. What time is it now? It's let's say it's nine o'clock now. So if I'm teleporting right now, it would have to be somewhere in Europe. I'd probably I'd probably go to like Florence or something. And I'd probably I'd probably do that because I've never been to Italy. I've been to Europe before. Or you know what? Maybe Poland. I've always wanted to go to Poland. And I just I my family has some Polish, Polish blood in them. And I've just always thought that would be an interesting place to visit. Maybe Italy, but I think I'd probably lean more into Poland. If we could go time and place. I think I would go back to when I was a kid. And somehow without creating a butterfly effect or anything like that. Tell myself that the frustration I was having as a kid would be resolved. Because I think that was that that's the biggest thing that when I was a. Preteen and teenager, I had all this angst that I didn't know what the future was going to hold. And I didn't know where I was going to find myself in the world or fit into the world. And I think now having such a clear kind of purpose and mission and and focus in my life, it's one of those things that if I could relieve myself and be like, yeah, it's going to be fine. I'm not going to tell you what's going to happen. But like, you don't have to worry about it. It's just it's going to happen. And you're not going to have to like climb the Andes to find it. It's just you're just going to you're just going to find it one day. That's probably what I do. OK, that's cool. Fabio, so if you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good have a good chance of winning a medal for? Real time copywriting. So I think I might be the only competitor that does this, but that's definitely where I would where I would win the sport. So what I do and I I've been a copywriter for years now, but I always did it kind of in the dark, like most copywriters do. And when I started this business, I wasn't really sure what to do in the sessions I had with clients, because I was used to doing consulting at the enterprise level, but in a different way, right? Like they would give you a task, you'd work on it for three months. But for the business owner, a business owner doesn't want to give you three months. They want to see results right away. And so I was trying to figure out what do I do in these sessions with clients? And it became really apparent within the first couple of sessions I had with clients that their biggest struggle was like putting words on paper. And I had struggled with that, too, for my own business. But I found it very easy for them. So I started writing copy for ads and websites and newsletters and all this on the call in real time in front of them. And I didn't really think anything about it. And I still didn't think anything about it until I had someone jump on one of my calls and watch me do it. And afterwards, they were a copywriter themselves. They pulled me aside and they said, how did you do that? I was like, what? And they're like, you just wrote an ad in like five minutes. And it sounds great, like you don't even like I can't do that. That would take me three hours to do. And I was like, oh, I don't know. I just that's just how I do it. I'm just used to working under that pressure of someone looking at me and expecting that, you know, in 15 minutes, I'm going to be able to give them something that's usable. And they said, that is absolutely nuts. Like, I would never do that. That is like walking on a tightrope above a pit full of alligators. Like, that is absolutely insane. And I kind of brushed it off and then I showed more people and then I did it more often in public. And I think copywriters would come up to me and say like, that is the most insane thing I've ever seen. Like, I've never seen anyone write like a full draft of copy in front of a client and just like do it in an instant, like not be stuck or fumbling or like. So I think that's what it would be. But like I said, I've never met anyone else that does it. So I think I'd be I'd be the winner by default. Well, you'll be you'll be more than a gold medalist. You'll be a record holder of medals. Yeah, I just show up. I wouldn't even have to compete. Just, you know, show up, write, you know, Hi, Joe on the piece of paper and then be like, yep, another gold in the books. Yeah, just give me the medal. I know. Off I go. Bye bye. Yeah, it's kind of like Michael Phelps, you know, it's like, do we really need to see him swim anymore? I don't think so. I think we're good. I think if he just shows up, everyone else should just kind of quit. Just give him the medal. Just give him the medals, man. Man's half dolphin.
A highlight from Mike Signorelli
"Trump calls Florida heartbeat bill a terrible mistake, and Mike Pence talks war with Russia. So I think if you will allow me to speak critically of Donald Trump for five minutes, I will speak critically. No, no, no, no. Look, you know, and I know, everybody listens who to this program knows that I don't think Trump is perfect. I think he ought to be the next president. And I think that, as you know about me and about many people listening to this program, that we are radically pro -life. We think it's a moral issue. And I think that Trump has made, I think he misspoke. I think it was, I don't know. Well, talk about it so people understand what we're talking about. Donald Trump went on face the nation and said that the heartbeat bill Ron DeSantis bravely signed in Florida was a terrible thing, a terrible mistake. And he said that he wouldn't commit to supporting any kind of federal restriction on the taking of unborn life. And he said with characteristic real estate bravado, well, I'm going to have policies that are going to make everybody happy. Everybody's going to walk away happy from the table. That is not how things work. When you're talking about life and death issues, Mr. President, that is how things might work. If you're negotiating over ownership of a golf course. All right. All right. Each of you is going to get nine holes. Okay. You'll each get nine holes. It's wonderful. You got, you've got half a golf course, half a loaf is better than none. But we remember from the story of Solomon, half a baby is not better than none. In this case, we're talking about cutting the baby in half. Literally we're talking about should abortion, should the pro -life position be, we want a bad abortion after maybe 15 weeks, which would only get rid of maybe 8 % of the abortions in America. If that's the pro -life position, it's not worth a damn thing. That's the law in Germany. That's the law in France. That's the law in Belgium. All these countries where euthanasia is now taking over. Having a 10 week, a 15 week abortion ban solves absolutely nothing. It just means the women who are so dopey, they don't even know they're pregnant until like 18 weeks won't be able to get abortions. That's all it means. He's really just punishing the stupid. It's not saving a significant number of babies. I don't know who Trump is getting his advice from on the abortion issue, but they're not on our side. They are like the Jared Kushner. They're not on our side. What Trump is saying is a complete loser position. It's like saying we're going to build the wall. We're going to build the wall with the Mexican border, except every 20 feet there's going to be a gap. We'll get most of the wall built. There'll guess who will come. I think a couple of things need to be said. First of all, I already said it. Trump is not perfect. So he often has done things that I think are harmful to himself. And saying that I think just politically is a mistake. But we also have to say without a doubt he has been the most pro -life president we ever had in this country. Because of him and standing up for Kavanaugh, Roe v. Wade was overturned. I want to remind people of that. I also want to remind people that he spoke at the March for Life. No other president had done that. And so right now, I guess I find everything with him, not everything, but a lot of stuff just funny. It's almost like he'll say anything Ron DeSantis says, he'll say the opposite. I know. You could be triggered and tripped into that. And it's his Achilles heel that whatever Trump, whatever DeSantis says, Trump will somehow try to spin it. Trump even said that Andrew Cuomo did a better job on COVID than Ron DeSantis. That is literally the most insane thing any American politician has said since Jefferson Davis said I want to secede from the union. It's up to that level of crazy. But Trump, I mean Trump does this stuff for effect. In other words, for political effect to drive people crazy. That's why I guess I find it at least partially entertaining that he'll go out on a limb and say something like that just to trigger DeSantis. The problem is this stuff isn't cute. There were thousands of people murdered in those nursing homes in New York. Abortion isn't cute. This is not something funny. This is not like letting Jared and Ivanka turn the White House into their own little party hut. This is really serious. And our only leverage over Trump is right now during the primaries. If he gets the nomination, he can do whatever he wants because he will be elected president unless they assassinate him, which I do not put past that. I do not put that past the deal. Oh, I know that there have been attempts that we haven't heard about, but obviously they would do anything to get rid of him. We have our leverage now, especially before the Iowa caucus. Trump needs to be told if you keep saying this weak, rhino, wimpy garbage about abortion, maybe we'll hold our noses and vote for you against Joe Biden because we don't want to be put in prison camps. But we're not going to go to the mattresses for you. We're not going to go to the wall for you. We're not going to be fanatical, devoted supporters. We will hold our nose and vote for you the way we held our noses and voted for George W. Bush. Do you want to be the next George W. Bush? Well, no, John, I think it's worse than that. I think what will happen, what will happen is many evangelicals, pro -life evangelicals simply won't vote, which I think is an unbelievable mistake because they feel it's principled not to vote for Trump because he said this about what DeSantis's view. On the other hand, let him think that and maybe it's true and let him act accordingly. It's like if we are so on the reservation, Eric, that they know they have our votes no matter what they do, the Republican Party will keep treating evangelicals and pro -lifers the way the Democratic Party treats blacks. That is, you have no choice where you're going to go, take whatever scraps we throw you. So no, I think it's good. Let him be a little afraid that we will go off the reservation. No, that's why I just said that. That's why I just said that. In other words, I actually believe that that's true because when you look at what happened in the last number of elections, there are many evangelicals who are so pious in the negative sense that they would say, I'm just going to sit home and I'm not going to vote because Trump had three wives and I'm going to let Hillary Clinton or Satan or Adolf Hitler take over America because I'm so pious that I won't pull the lever for somebody who doesn't agree with me on everything or who puts out mean tweets or says things I disagree with. That is effectively how we got Biden because we didn't have a serious situation that we're in. On the other hand, Mike Pence is saying that unless we give long range missiles to Ukraine so it can kill lots of Russians, we'll have to go to war with Russia because it will invade Poland. So in order to avoid war, we have to fight a war. It's exactly what George W. Bush said about Iraq, that we have to fight the terrorists over there so we don't have to fight them over here so they won't do 9 -11 again. Now we know now Iraq had nothing to do with 9 -11. It had no weapons of mass destruction. So he lied us into the Iraq war. In Vietnam, they told us we had to fight the Vietnam war so that the communists wouldn't take over Japan and then Hawaii. The whole domino theory is something that warmongers and the military contractors they work for, they whip it out every time they want to get us in a useless war. They say, well, remember Neville Chamberlain? Remember 1938? And I always say, remember August, 1914, when they blundered into World War I and destroyed all three of the main governments involved in it, all based on nothing, based on lies, based on garbage. Sometimes it's November, September, 1938. Sometimes it's August, 1914. And you're the idiot warmonger about to plunge the world into destruction because of your silly fantasies private about being a big man. Mike Pence is one of those warmongers and he's very dangerous right now. There's never enough time to talk to you, my friend. We'll get you back as soon as possible. Thank you, folks. We'll be right back. Thank you. For 10 years, Patriot Mobile has been America's only Christian conservative wireless provider. And when I say only, trust me, they're the only one.

A highlight from Climate Change Reality Check
"Yeah, we're not going to support the police officers. We're going to have high taxes and high regulations and tell you exactly what to do, including making sure you've got a face diaper strapped to your chin. Oh, and you don't want to do business here? Oh, oh, and by the way, the only people that are thriving are the ones that are not listening to your regulations. The ones that are stealing stuff, those are the only ones that are doing well. That's a shocker. All right, welcome back to the Financial Guys podcast. Thanks for listening in. We do appreciate it. Thanks for the downloads. If you like what you hear, give us a thumbs up and share it with your friends. It's the only way we're going to get the conservative message out. Of course, Glenn Wiggle, Mike Lomas. We are the Financial Guys. We've been doing this now for 20, almost going on 26 years pretty soon here, so a lot to go through today. I've got some great clips as well. They're bringing it back, Mike. We'll start with that, I guess. Well, I've heard that rumor a few times, so to give credit. Sometimes the right can be a little bit crazy, too, because this has happened about three or four times. I will say, though, the funniest part about this, this is the funniest part, is the amount of internet warriors, social media warriors, that are like, I'll tell you what, I'm not complying this time. Bullshit. Bullshit. That's right. Exactly. When there's 500 people in Wegmans and I'm the only one without a face diaper, I'm not buying it until you actually show up. The fact that we have the amount of actual studies now, though, it got away with it the first time because it was all new. We didn't know it was a novel coronavirus. It's not so novel anymore. And you can't blame some people. No, it's not novel anymore, though. It's not new anymore. And so now we've had three years of research, and guess what that research has shown? They did a... How about the Vax, they're still pushing the booster shot. But on the Mask of Cologne... How many people need to die? They did a study of all the studies. It was like the end -all, be -all of studies. It was like the highest level of blind, whatever. Like the Poland's blizzard study? Not that one, but the actual study. No, like it, though. Like it. And they came out with a study, and what they showed of looking at all these different things is that no benefit at all. We knew that, right? We talked about no benefit at all. So now we have actual research for no benefit at all for the masks. It was crushing people's immune system. You were way more likely to get it with it. And we know that people that are getting vaccinated, especially young males, have a higher chance and risk of myocarditis than they have of actually getting sick from the infection. Why are we even talking about it? So now that we have the data, the fact that they're still... So here's why I know this. Yes, there's some right -wing folks out there that are like, oh my God, it's coming. But okay, so a central New York hospital has brought back masking requirements. Rutgers University is going back to masking and vaccination requirements. There's many colleges across the country that are going back to this. You're starting to see the news articles start to talk about this, right? They're starting to implant it in the psyche of what are we going to do this winter, right? Must be some elections coming up. And exactly. And we have an election coming up. They're going to do it again. They're going to try to do it again is exactly what they're going to do. To your point, and I don't want to switch into gears like this, but it doesn't matter with the Democrats any facts, okay? No. Listen to this. This is John Kerry. Oh, I got a clip for that. This is John Kerry five years ago. Okay, I'll play it real quick. Scientists predict we will have the first ice -free ice, which is melting sea ice, which is melting at a rate the Arctic Ocean now increasingly is exposed. In five years, scientists predict we will have the first ice -free Arctic summer. So by 2014, we were going to have the first ice -free Arctic summer. The opposite happened, by the way. There's a record amount of ice out there right now, a record amount of ice. So when you talk about, like, amnesia and how stupid these people are, and there's no other, I don't even like to use that word, but when it comes to dummy -crats, they really are dumb. Well, look at the housing crisis. Look at the housing crisis. You had Barney Frank out there going, we, homes are no problem at all. We're not talking about some dot -com company here. We're talking about homes. These are not bound to save ebb and flows at the stock market, right? This is home ownership. So he pushed it and they pushed it and they pushed it and they passed laws and they passed bills. And then they said, I never said that.

And like most podcasts, we'll probably be all over the board today. Happy end of summer at Erie County Fair here. It makes me happy and makes me want to cry at the same time because our summers are just way too short here. I just feel like the Erie County Fair sort of marks one of those spots. Like, yeah, the good weather's been here, but the bad weather's coming. I am going to the demo derby this Sunday. I haven't done that in years. Actually, my buddy Tim, we put a car in years ago. He drove it. It was unbelievable. Not that these aren't men driving them now, because I think I'm going to put one together next year, but those cars were like, you know, 4 ,000 pound station wagons. The old school automobiles, the big old boats. Oh yeah, that's what we put. No, we put a Caprice in. And the car got so smashed up that you could actually, it looked like Pac -Man in the back. The back of the car got sliced open and you could see right through it. Wow, that's crazy. Yeah, now they do it with like a Prius and it lasts, what, four minutes? It's over in like three minutes? That's it? No, they go because all these guys have learned very strategic ways to sort of make the car go longer. So welding certain things underneath and all that, but it's not like the old school. You talk about, you know, smashing a Cadillac versus a station wagon, you know. Right, right, right. But all good, all good. So, where do we want to start today? Let's start with this video. Let's start with the video, yeah. Yeah, this is good. I mean, this is becoming, it's pretty obvious now. We're going to talk, I've got some, oh, I left my pad in the other room. Indictments, Poland cars, a couple different things. But I want to start with this, because this is a great video. This is Matt Kim, I don't know this kid, I've got to make sure I follow him here. He's a podcaster, I guess, but man, he just nails it. This is what these latest indictments out of Georgia, I think this guy pretty much calls it, this is out of control. This is no longer a left versus right, folks. We have to begin to realize this. This is no longer a, you know, Democrat versus Republican. This is becoming a us versus them. And I mean us being the free peoples of the world versus the global elitist who don't have our best interests at heart. You've got people like John Kerry out there talking about, well, we just have to eliminate the farms if we're going to get anywhere with global warming. This is the same guy as the polar ice caps we've gone in five years, 20 years ago. We have to eliminate the food or else people are going to die. Well, that's the point, by the way. If you looked at actually some of their data, so Al Gore's book was true, right? If we could go back through Al's book and say, hey, look, Al was 70 % right, he was 0 % right. Zero. There isn't anything that's in that book that was correct, right? Nothing. Nothing. Not a thing. Yeah, he didn't get anything right. It's not like he was like, wow, he was half off. Nothing. You can go back 40 years. Every single prediction. In the 70s it was a global ice age. Global freezing. Freezing. It was we're all going to die and we can play the videos of that. In the 80s it was acid rain and we were all going to die. And now in the 90s they moved to global warming and we're all going to die unless you give us all of your money right now. And it's an emergency. Always an emergency. And there's always a deadline. We got eight days. We got eight years. We got six months. And none of the money ever goes to specific projects to actually help the environment. The number one thing we could do is plant trees. And this would be a very easy solution. All you need to do is give people a tax break to plant trees. There'd be trees everywhere. That's all. That's all you need to do. Hey, look, we're going to allow you, if you buy up to five trees a year, we're going to allow them, you can deduct that 100 % from ordinary income. And if you're a corporation, we'll let you do whatever, 500 trees or something like that. Done. Done. There'd be trees everywhere. Wow. We don't have the money for the trees, Mike, because we have to pay the bureaucrats. See, we have to have the people who administer. If we just had more money, you know, because after we're done with, and you know, and there's a Rochester program that they just talked about, you know, we'll get to that too maybe later in the show where they talked about, well, eight years in and you know, they're still fighting poverty. Well, wouldn't you know it? Wouldn't you know it? All the money of these, of all these, you know, do good types of organizations, a lot of the time go to 99 .999 % salaries, salaries of the bureaucrats. How about this? Take a wild guess at Al Gore's not worth. No, you've got Chuckie, Chuckie Schumer, 200, 200 low. No, I'm low. 300 by now. 300, 300. Wow. 300 million. 300 million. Do you know how many trees we could plant with $300 million? I actually think he could live and his wife could live really, really well on what, 10 million? 10 million? $290 million worth of trees. That fixes a lot of communities. It fixes a lot of global warming problems, I think. They are such bullshit. It's not even funny. And what's the shame of it is shame on you Democrats that sit there and watch this crap. Right. Many republicans.

Alright, the first topic is countries chosen by Lillie Agnew. So Kyle, you're, you're, you're the one who has the first question. Okay, okay. So you have three choices. You want to start off with hard, you want to start off with medium, or do you want to start off with easy? Well, I think I'm a bit of an idiot, so I'm going to go with medium. Medium? Alright, alright. Alright then, so continent. Alright then. What's Africa. the name of some countries? What do you want me to do, Matt? Alright, so in Africa, which country begins with the letter A and borders Morocco? I know such and go. I know this one, by the way. Same with me. Kyle, don't set it up. Don't have a clip. Alright, just guess. I'm stupid. I need to give you four options. Right, is it A, Libya? Is it B, Algeria? Is it C, Andorra? Or is it D, Australia? Option B. Option B. Kyle, you just got yourself a point. That's correct. Are you like writing down the scores? I have a nice memory, but I'll have to write them down. Right, next. Selva, you want easy, medium, or hard? A proper easy remark. Alright then. What country is the legend himself, Oliver, from? Selva. You better not get this wrong. What country is Oliver from? Oh yeah, Poland, Poland, Poland. Okay, okay. Alright then. Okay, that's the name of Selva. Alright, next Lily. Easy, medium, or hard? Easy. Easy. Wait, no, medium, medium. Medium, medium. Alright. Which European country, I mean not European, which Asian country is in between India and Russia? Is it A, Australia? Is it B, Kazakhstan? Is it C, China? Or is it D, Iran? China. You got it correct. Lily, you got a point. So now we are all on one point. Kyle and Lily don't have the medium option, whereas Selva has the medium and hard option. Yay. Kyle, easy or hard? What's the topic? Countries. Which countries here? Iraq. Easy. Alright then. Which country is on top of the USA? Canada. Correct. Correct, Kyle. Two points for you. Selva, medium or hard? Medium. Selva, you got to get cooked. So, which country is the second largest in South America? Is it A, Peru? Is it B, Bolivia? Is it C, Venezuela? Or is it D, Argentina? Bro, I know I'm gun thrown. Just guess. If you want me to repeat them again, then I can do it. Yeah, go on, repeat them again. Is it A, Peru? B, Venezuela? C, Bolivia? Or is it D, Argentina? I'm going to go with B. B. Yeah. And you got it wrong. It is Argentina, D. Yeah. Next, Lily. Easy or hard? Hard. Hard. Okay. This will be my style of hard. I guess. Next, we'll do Africa again. Which country got independence from Sudan in 2011? What did you say? Which country got independence from Sudan in 2011? Is it A, Chautily? Is it B, Niger? Is it C, Libya? Or is it D, South Sudan? South Sudan. I kind of gave the answer away, but it's correct. You got it wrong. I swear that was meant to be easy. No. No, it's not. I kind of gave it away. Or should I do a new one? No, that's kind of easy. I don't mind. You don't mind? Alright then, so we'll do it again then. Which country is in between? Which country is literally like in South Africa? Is it A, Eswatini? Is it B, Swaziland? Is it D, Switzerland? Or is it D, Swaziland, Nigeria? whatever it is. Swaziland. Oh, where did Lily go? I'll get her back. You can see me. Marvin, I swear I lost. Where did Kyle go? Oh yeah. Oh, Lily's back? Sorry, my phone turned off. And the answer was... Eswatini. You got it wrong. Because Eswatini used to be called Swaziland but they changed their name. So that counts? If they changed their name, it's supposed to be hard. That counts then? Because it's the same. Stop thinking Marvin. Kyle, do you... Alright then, we'll check the VAR Miracle then. Miracle, there's a country which was like formally named like as like Eswatini or Swaziland. Yeah, does that still count? No, not really. Not really? Alright then. Lily, we checked VAR, back it to Miracle. And the answer was, Miracle, do it. Yeah, that is incorrect. Alright, unfortunately, Lily, you... I mean, it's the hard round. So, fair enough. So Salva lost in the medium round, so it ain't that bad. No, but it's over. I'm dumb like that, man. You're giving me... No, Marvin, you're targeting me, man. No, I'm not. Not because I can answer any question that you ask me, but the question that you ask me specifically. Alright, Salva. Alright, next. Kyle's on two, Lily's on one, Salva's on one. Alright, Kyle, if you get this one correct, then you get a point and you advance. And you're in the lead. Kyle? Yeah? This is the hard one. Okay. In Central America, which country is beginning with P in Central America? I'm not looking at a map. Is it A, Peru? Is it B, Poland? Is it C, Palau? Or is it D, Panama? B. D, D, D, D. Yeah, D. What is it? D. Bro, he knows that. Yeah. Kyle, you got a point, you now got the advantage. Which means that Kyle's got one point into the final, which is very good for Kyle. I like mine very good. Alright then, since we finished this, Kyle's now on one point, Lily's on zero, Salva's on zero. Next, Lily, when I'm not Lily, Kyle, pick your topic. Queen songs. Okay, I don't know how to do that. Alright, Kyle, maybe not queen, maybe like general pop songs. Thank you, you little rat. Oh, we have the room. What? We can't speak pop songs. Alright, what's going on with queen? We can't just speak of animals then. Animals? Alright, okay, that's easier. Alright then, first one to answer gets a point. We'll do three of these questions and the first one to answer will get generally a point. The first one to answer, alright? Yeah, I got you. Alright then. I'll give out options and I'll make it four options. What is, which animal have I seen lately? Is it A, Oliver? Is it B, Oliver? Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye. Is it B, a bird. Is it C, a dog. Or is it D, um myself. Aye, aye, aye, aye, aye, Aye, Aye, Aye. Aye, Oliver. I was correct. It was Oliver. Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye. Sugar, I think he was silver, it was silver.
"poland" Discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated
"Thank you, Hugh. Always great to be on. Thank you. Morning, Gloria America, Baltimore High, Canada. I'm Hugh Hewitt in Studio North coming up at the bottom of the hour. Vice President Pence will be joining me, the former vice president making the rounds on CNN yesterday joining me this morning. But first, I've got Molly Hemingway of Fox News and The Federalist. Good morning, Molly, and good Monday to you. Good morning. Great to be here with you. Did you go to see either Barbie or Oppenheimer or Barbieheimer as it's being called by the tabs today? I did. Well, Christopher Nolan is my favorite director. I actually went to see Barbie for other reasons. And it was something. Well, tell me about that because I got the grandkids with me and I put the big detail on Barbie, even for an 11 year old. I didn't want any part of it. What do you think? Oh, I think that would be wise. My one big regret about it is that it kind of introduces concepts of anti-womanhood to a younger crowd. I love being female. I love that my parents made me feel like it was a great thing to be a girl. And it just has this aspect of it where it acts like being a woman is awful and impossible. It actually says being a woman is impossible. And I just don't like to introduce those concepts. And so one of the girls I was with was 14. And I don't think she'd ever even encountered that because of the way she's been raised until that movie. But I'm not completely criticizing it. It was a beautifully done film. It is accidentally anti-feminist. I even was talking with her about it. It made her realize that a lot of feminism is about taking the joy out of life. And I think that's a wonderful thing for someone to learn because I want all girls to be happy being girls. I don't want to be too critical. It just is definitely kind of lame in parts. The reviews I read said it introduces politics into a Barbie narrative. And so I thought it was just going to be a funny movie, but it's not. I read the reviews on that before I take a grandkid anywhere. So that's a no. Oppenheimer though, I can't wait to see. I'm not going to see it with kids, but it's got a role for Roger Robin at the first judge I clerked for on the D.C. Circuit. It was one of the prosecutors of Oppenheimer. So I'm very interested to see how he's cast. What do you think about Christopher Nolan generally? I've always enjoyed his movies. I like his discussions of time. I think Interstellar is just amazing, but I've liked a lot of them going memento and earlier. I love his use of music too. Like in Interstellar, one of the main parts I feel like is played by an organ. The music is always such a key part and it is integrated in a way that is meaningful. And so I very much enjoy him. So I will definitely be going to see it, even though I've read David Harsani, my colleague's stuff on Oppenheimer and the dangers of glorifying a communist and whatnot. Right. He's a fellow traveler at a minimum. And Roger was always proud of his work on that. But I still want to see a Nolan movie on Oppenheimer. Molly, let's turn to two big issues. What I'm going to ask the vice president about. First of all, the dictator of Belarus, Lukashenko, said that he's trying to keep the Wagner group from attacking to Warsaw. And Putin is warning of Poland's plan to attack Belarus. What would your reaction be to any incursion into Poland by Wagner or Belarus or Russian forces? Well, it would be it would be a horrific thing. But I think one thing we've learned about this war is that Russia and its affiliated groups like the Wagner group had overestimated their capabilities. It would be extremely unlikely and unwise to invade Poland given, you know, given the European construct there. So I don't really see that as happening. Now, having said that, I do think all the NATO affiliated countries should be very careful on how they don't move in a way to escalate any conflict here and make it worse than it already is. We've got American troops in Poland. And I think we're obliged by NATO Article Five. I'm going to confirm this with the vice president. Even if mercenaries attack a country, just like the jihadists attack the United States and all of our NATO allies came to our aid, we have to come to the aid of Poland if that were to happen. And I think being clear about that deters it. Well, two things, you know, you'd want to be you'd want to make sure everyone knows the Wagner Wagner Wagner Wagner group is controlled by the Russians. So it's it's a distinction without a difference, perhaps there. But you'd have to make sure there's been a lot of misinformation and disinformation in this war, and a lot of attempts to get people more involved. You've had, you know, stray attacks being regarded as as as planned when they weren't, you know, just as an attempt or people blaming Russia for things that later turned out maybe weren't Russia, all clearly an attempt to exacerbate the conflict. The other thing about Article Five is that, yeah, that's why it's so serious when countries enter, you know, we are saying, if you attack this country, it's like you attack Nebraska, and we're going to come after you. It's a very serious thing to form an alliance. But Article Five still says that this is how Congress decides. Article Five means for us that not that it's an automatic entry, but that Congress would have to debate and decide to go to full war. Okay, we I will ask the Vice President about that. Now I want to turn to Israel where they are voting on the reasonability standard, broking it basically, or altering it. And I don't have opinions on domestic issues in other countries. I do follow their constitutional law debates for comparative constitutional law reasons. I am astonished that Joe Biden intervened in a domestic political dispute in Israel, that has nothing to do with us. And that Tom Friedman wrote a column yesterday saying, you're the only one who can save Israel today, like Nixon did 50 years ago in the Yom Kippur War. What is up with these people, not not the Israelis, they can have their own debate and come to their own resolution, the democratically elected representatives. Controversial, it's hot. But what in the world does Biden think he's doing here? I mean, I'm not astonished because it seems like the type of thing that he would do getting in or getting involved and getting involved in a weird way on a domestic political issue. The situation in Israel is really important. I mean, the way that they have renegade courts has caused major problems. It is a dispute worth having, even if, you know, regardless of how it turns out. But I think that Biden tends to view countries as vassal states, and that he can control them. And he's very supportive of how we handled Ukraine in that matter. I think he thinks that because of aid that we give to Israel that we get a say in how they run their country. It's not how diplomacy should work. And it doesn't lead to strong situations in the aftermath, but I'm not surprised. He rejected the advice of his Secretary of Defense to name a new CNO, Admiral Paparro, I believe, in favor of another Admiral. And I'm sure it'll be fine for the Navy. But what do you think that it was the first woman CNO, first woman member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. What do you think about that decision? I don't know enough about it to say, but I do. You know, it does remind me of also this situation. I think you have been opposed to the Tommy- Very. Supperville hold on military advancements. But I keep thinking, you know, Joe Biden could stop this at the drop of a hat by just removing his introduction of politics into the military with the abortion funding that has never been there. And he could make it all go away very, very quickly. And he should be pressured to do so if he would just stop turning our military into this social project to advance abortion and radical trans ideology. Yeah, we can hold two thoughts. Lloyd Austin was very wrong to do that. I think it's illegal under the Hyde Amendment. But the people that are being punished for Lloyd Austin and Joe Biden's policy are career colonels, captains and admirals and generals, everyone promoting up. And the impact on the military is devastating. Talking to a current naval officer yesterday about a friend of his who's got a star and is supposed to do a year long deployment. That's a tough deployment. I'm not going to say where it is. It's going to be a very hard deployment. He doesn't even get to start it until people can move and they can't move until people promote. It is it's going to be a fiasco in the career military for years to come, Molly. And I do not I don't believe Tuberville knows what he's doing, actually. I was talking to someone else whose dad was affected by this as well. But, you know, this is why you should resolve it as quickly as possible. And the way to resolve it is to stop doing the awful thing. And I think that people should should pressure Biden to back off from this, because likewise, if you want to talk about lifelong problems, what they're doing with the radical trans ideology, with the abortion funding, that will be impossible to get rid of if you don't get rid of it on the front end. And, you know, the analogy and I haven't thought this through radical trans ideology, if you want to be like holding up the appointment of the of the head of a medical center that has nothing to do with trans issues, it just had nothing to do with it. And it's like shooting at every target in the room. I want to give you the last word. I really think we've got to talk to the senator from Alabama. And there's a reason other Republicans aren't being very vocal in support of him. Some are going through the pro forma stuff, but they know I don't think he knows what he's doing to people. The minimum number of years in uniform that someone has to be affected by this is 22. And so every and he's done it to 270 people with 22 years of service in the United States military. I do not understand it. You allow this stuff to take over, we won't even have a military, we will certainly not have a prepared fighting force if we allow the left to keep. We're getting there more quickly, if we do not, if we lose our best people, and we don't move into the jobs, we will lose our best people. It's truly one guy's opinion on how to fix a problem. If everything is that all you got is a hammer, everything looks like a nail time.
A highlight from Former V.P. Mike Pence on Putin's threat to Poland and Biden's interference in Israeli politics
"Welcome to today's podcast, sponsored by Hillsdale College, all things Hillsdale, hillsdale .edu. I encourage you to take advantage of the many free online courses there. And of course, to listen to the Hillsdale dialogues, all of them at hughforhillsdale .com or just Google Apple, iTunes, and Hillsdale. Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt, joined by former Vice President Mike Pence. Mr. Vice President, welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt Show. Hey, good to be with you, Hugh. Thanks for having me on. Well, I want everyone to go to mikepence2024 .com if they want to support you, if they want to learn about the campaign. We'll come back to the campaign in a second. But I'm not mistaken, Mr. Vice President, you and the former president are the only two people running for office who have ever received the daily brief, who understand, had all the clearances you could. So I want to ask you three national security questions this morning, beginning with the threat that Vladimir Putin made in the company of Lukashenko, the dictator of Belarus, that any attack on Belarus would be an attack on Russia. And then the Belarusian leader made the claim that the Wagner people in Belarus are wanting to go to Warsaw. What would be the obligation of the United States in the event that Wagner, Belarus, or Russian troops attacked Poland? Well, there's no question what the obligation would be under Article 5 of the NATO treaty. And that would be required to support Poland, we'd be required to be involved militarily. It's one of the reasons why I've said many times, I mean, Joe Biden has done a terrible job explaining what our interest is in Ukraine. He keeps giving these gauzy speeches about democracy. And for all the world, it sounds like another campaign speech and our interest there. And the reason why we should continue on an increasing basis to give the Ukrainian military what they need to repel the Russian invasion is because we never want to see the day that the Russian military, whether it's a Wagner group in Belarus or otherwise, crosses the border of a NATO country where our troops would be required to fight. I mean, that's how you get peace through strength, is by living out the Reagan doctrine, which always said, if you're willing to fight the communists on your grounds with your soldiers, we'll give you what you need to fight them there. So we don't have to fight them. And yet there are too many voices in our party that are sounding the retreat. They're willing to let Putin keep the land grab that he's made in Eastern Ukraine, willing to make promises. I heard my former running mate has announced over the weekend that he's willing to promise that Ukraine will never be in NATO. Look, in my opinion, the only thing Putin will understand is strength and providing those courageous fighters in Ukraine what they need to to repel the Russian invasion is the fastest way to security and preventing the day that American forces are actually required to go into battle in Europe again. What do you think Lukashenko and Putin are doing here? The Telegraph calls it a setup for a false flag operation or is it just mind games? Yeah, look, I would hardly ever counsel Hugh Hewitt on foreign policy, but you and I both know the only thing you can know for sure about anything coming out of Russia is you don't know for sure. Okay, well said. Nothing is as it seems. When you find out that after Ferguson does this supposed coup against Putin, now we found out in the last week that they apparently met a couple days later and had a conversation and the whole thing could have just been a put -up job for Putin to flush out his enemies in his own government. I wouldn't have put it past him. I do like what was once said by another presidential candidate. He said he looked into Putin's eyes and he didn't see his soul. He saw KGB. That's who you're dealing with and so nothing is as it seems in the acolyte state of Belarus that I just wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him and that's why we just need to stay strong in this effort and continue to demand that the Biden administration stop dragging their feet on providing arms in Ukraine, which they've been doing for the last year and a half. Give those people what they need. They can win this war and secure the peace of Europe and the security of our country. Now Vivek Ramaswamy, who you'll be sharing a stage with on Friday at the Iowa GOP Lincoln and with all the other candidates are going to have their speeches in Iowa, Vivek was throwing shade on NATO this weekend on Fox News Sunday. Meanwhile, the US and 13 allies were holding a record -setting military exercise in Australia. It seems to me that this might be a time for us to expand our alliances, Mr. Vice President, not sever them. Well, we'll be strengthening our alliances. The last thing that we ought to do is try and secure peace in Ukraine by rewarding Vladimir Putin's naked and brutal invasion into that country by giving him the land and giving him promises never to have Ukraine be a part of NATO. Look, and this has everything to do with the wider world, Hugh. I mean, there's no question in my mind that if we end up capitulating to Putin's aggression, that will only embolden President Xi in his military ambitions in the Asia Pacific. And I just think this is one of those moments where we learned hard lessons in the first half of the 20th century where America, we thought we could hang back. We thought we could hang back within our borders and watch as the world became more unstable and unfurled. And we learned hard lessons than having to come into the fight, both in World War I and especially in World War II. And we won those fights for freedom, but we've secured the peace now for three quarters of because a century we've been willing to stand strong. We've been willing to be the arsenal of democracy. And if I'm president of the United States, I promise you we're going to live out that commitment of being leaders of the free world. And let me also say, I had a sporting debate on stage about a week or so with a former Fox News host that got some play on the Internet. I just don't think we have to choose between solving problems here at home, which is the economy that's failing, the border crisis, the crisis in energy, the crime wave in our cities. I don't think we have to choose between solving problems here at home and being the leader of the free world. We can do both. And anybody who says we can't has a pretty small view of the greatest nation on Earth. Now, Mr. Vice President, third, I'm playing rapid fire national security, but a lot happened this weekend. Right now they are voting in the Israeli Knesset on the reform of the Israeli Supreme Court. Got nothing to do with America. It's an internal Israeli domestic issue. Yesterday, President Biden told Israel to stop, slow down and not do that. And Tom Friedman, one of the most extraordinary columns ever in The New York Times, telling the president to address the dear President Biden that the October 1973 intervention by Richard Nixon to save Israel is what he's facing right now. He has to save Israel by getting by involved speaking the truth. What do you make of the intervention of an American president into the internal domestic politics and policy and judiciary of an ally? Look, I said many times and I was at Christians United for Israel a week ago, Hugh, and I was honored to receive some recognition there, Defender of Israel Award. I was humbled by that. Look, I was a part of the most pro -Israel administration in American history, I always would say. And I will tell you, if I'm president of the United States, if the world knows nothing else, the world will know this. America stands with Israel. And this preoccupation of Democrats, which literally goes back decades of trying to micromanage what's happening in the domestic politics in Israel, is wrongheaded. And it undermines a clear message to one of the most dangerous parts of the world of our commitment to our most cherished ally. I reject it categorically. I'm a great admirer of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He's absolutely determined to see this this court reform through. And I think we ought to let Israel be Israel, let them sort these things out domestically. And our position should just be to always give them what they need to defend themselves, by themselves, and to make it clear in the region, in the world, that America stands with Israel. Period paragraph.
Salena Zito Checks in for the Weekly Yinzer Report
"Selena Zito joins me for the Yinser Report. Good morning, Selena. How are you? Good morning, Sunshine. How are you? I am great. Kevin McCarthy was in the land. I loved your column about it. What was he talking about to you? First of all, where did you do the interview? At this place called the Lake. It's near Poland, which is, as you know, is a suburb of Youngstown where Ron DeSantis's mother is from, actually. Right. Right. So what was he doing there? Was he campaigning for David Joyce? Well, he is campaigning for candidates that already exist, but he's also campaigning and looking for and recruiting candidates in Pennsylvania and Ohio. That's good luck in Pennsylvania. I got a question for you, Selena. Do you boil or do you grill your hot dogs? Oh, grill. Oh, the people who boil their hot dogs, you know, they need to go to confession. You know, Selena, you're so wrong about that. And my poll proved conclusively. I did an online poll. Duane is a grilled person and I'm a boiled person. But you're wrong. Let's go back to Kevin McCarthy. So you sat down in Poland. You crossed over the line. You got your papers. They let you through from Pennsylvania into Ohio. How long were you with the speaker for? The interview went for about 45 minutes. How many columns are you going to get out of that? Well, probably a couple, but this is a, you know, sort of a big profile piece of him in the magazine. And I thought he was really interesting in talking about how he has dealt his hand with only having a five seat majority. And he was really thoughtful about, you know, we actually got more done with five seats than we did when we had a really big majority.
Drago Dzieran: Growing up in Communist Poland
"Things. Well as you mentioned I was born and grew up in a socialist state run by communists like my father. This is something that people do not stand often that none of these countries behind Iron Curtain including Soviet Union were communist, pure communist countries. They were social states run by very oppressive regimes and like I mentioned my father. There is something that there is only so much people can put out and eventually in Poland people started revolting after decades of oppression, political murders, political prisoners. Finally people started revolting and they built in 1980s after the visit of John Paul II they built the Solidarity Trade Union movement that was first independent, first in any communist kind, socialist state behind Iron Curtain, first state independent from communist party. I was involved in it, I was helping building it, my mother was heavily involved in this trade union which eventually became a social movement opposing the tyranny. socialist My father on the other side was on the opposite side, he was one of the leading and communists probably the member of communist at the time. I really understood from the very beginning how bad, how dangerous the social agencies are. I witnessed my family members being tortured by the police and the secret police in Poland. So I made in my mind very early in my life that this is not the

Scarred by war, Ukrainian children carry on after losing parents, homes and innocence
"UNICEF says an estimated 1.5 million Ukrainian children are at risk of depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. In lviv near the border with Poland, Ukrainian children dance with adults trying to bring some joy in wartime, one of the kids playing 9 year old Andrea recalls the day their house was shelled in Ukraine's eastern Donetsk region. We ran out of the house but everything was in a white fog. I was wounded right there, then we didn't see dad. When the fog lifted, he found his father on the porch, motionless and covered in blood, after being struck by a Russian projectile, their foster mother, Nina poliakova, told the AP and three is usually calmer than his sister Olga, but that's. At night, there are still births. Sometimes they are screaming hundreds of kids have been killed in Ukraine for the survivors, the wide ranging trauma is certain to leave psychological scars that will follow them into adolescence and adulthood.

F-16 Training Planned for Ukraine’s Pilots
"Says the U.S. green light to allow Ukrainian pilots to get training to fly F-16s has created a momentum that will inevitably bring the fighter jets to the Ukrainian battlefield. Josep Burrell says it almost the same thing at the beginning, everybody is reluctant, giving the example of the long debate and initial opposition to the dispatch of advanced leopard battle tanks to Ukraine. He goes on, and at the end, with the leopards with the F-16s, the decision comes to provide this military support because it's absolutely needed. He added that training for Ukrainian pilots had already begun in Poland and some other countries,
Russia launches 'exceptional' air attack on Kyiv as Europe, China look to exert influence
"China's further exploring officials say ways to bring the Ukraine war to an end. A Chinese envoy is preparing to visit Ukraine and Russia in coming days as Beijing presses the peace plan. It released in February. Lee Hui, a former ambassador to Moscow, also will visit Poland, France and Germany, according to the Chinese foreign ministry, leader Xi Jinping's government says it's neutral and wants to play a role as mediator in the war, but it's given Moscow political support and a breakthrough appears unlikely more than 14 months after Russia's full scale invasion.

Is Poland Reviving the Death Penalty? Jack Posobiec Weighs In
"Jack, I want to talk. You know, actually, give us the lay of the land. I mean, you are Polish, you're an American, but you are a Polish descent. My family's poorest, yeah. Yeah, your family's Polish. So I saw this news story. I wasn't going to so sorry to put you on the spot here, but I know you can handle it. I saw that there's the prime minister in my right of Poland is now calling for the death penalty to be brought back into law in Poland. Is that right? Yes. Exactly. So you got to understand that the backstory is that in the EU, the death penalty does not exist. In fact, there's only one country in all of Europe that still has the death penalty, and that's Belarus, which is in Eastern Europe, not in EU member. And in fact, Russia doesn't even have the death penalty. So I know, right, Russia. And so for any EU member to even discuss bringing this back, I mean, it would be like, I mean, it would be like us talking about bringing back firing squads or something, which I do know that I think Idaho was actually talking about this recently. So the backstory here is that unfortunately there was a horrific case of child abuse in Poland, this total psychopath where murder in general is very, very low in Poland. It's one of the lowest countries in all of the OCD. The developed countries list. And it was an 8 year old child who was unfortunately brutalized and killed. And the prime minister of Poland came out straight up and said, we should reinstate the death penalty when it comes for a child abuse. And Andrew, I got to say, if there's any crime that deserves it, it's that.
Ron DeSantis Visits Israel As Disney Sues Him for Alleged Retaliation
"Ron DeSantis is in Israel right now. Seems to be on a kind of globe trotting expedition. And I don't know the exact purpose of it, but the kind of obvious purpose to infer is that he wants to show that there is a foreign policy dimension. Think of it. Or the governor of a state or the CEO of that state, but that means you're dealing with domestic issues. In fact, even issues like immigration are somewhat outside of your control, not entirely, but that's a federal matter. And moreover, all of foreign policy is a national not a state issue and the president is the commander in chief. So desantis setting doesn't want to go into the campaign with the, you know, have you ever been to Israel? No, I haven't. Have you ever been to Poland? No, I haven't. So I think he wants to show. I've been to these places and moreover, I've met with the leaders of those countries. I've been able to see for myself what's going on. I'm developing a broader horizon than merely the state of Florida. So this seems to be the purpose of it. Meanwhile, in Florida, the Disney corporation has filed a lawsuit against dissenters and also against the new state oversight board, claiming that the state of Florida is engaging in targeted retaliation against Disney. Now, let's look at what the nature of this lawsuit is. The lawsuit basically says that the government is punishing Disney for expressing an unpopular political viewpoint and this violates Disney's constitutional rights.
Caller: Is Air National Guardsman Jack Teixeira a Patriot?
"You told Tracy my screener that there's some pretty decent people and honorable people who are capable of telling the truth, I guess I would be under the realm of whistleblower. Do you think this 21 year old Jack to share is potentially a great patriot? I wouldn't call him a great patriot, but I think potentially there are people high in the government who are great patriots. I don't think he did this alone. I think there are people who are against the lunacy that's going on in our government right now and want to stop it have made it possible for him to get this stuff and leak it to the public so that we can stop what's happening and it's ridiculous. We've got the 82nd and a 101st airborne and Poland and Romania right now. We're looking for a war with Russia. And these people disagree, but they can't do it publicly. Daniel ellsberg in 1971 did it publicly and he paid a pretty price, but he was trying to stop a disastrous war then too.

"Asks his interpreter, Paul Schmidt to step in. Schmidt oversleeps. When he sees the time he rushes to the foreign office, and he gets there just as Henderson's car is pulling up. They shake hands. But Henderson says he won't sit down, you'll keep it brief. I regret that on the instruction of my government, I have to hand you an ultimatum, he says. Germany's troops must be withdrawn from Poland by noon. He apologizes. Schmidt has always been helpful. The interpreter likewise has a sneaking admiration for Henderson. He's proven able to stand up to the Führer, is yelled in Hitler's face on more than one occasion. They part with a wearied acceptance. Schmidt then rushes straight to Hitler's office. He has to fight his way through the Nazi officials gathering in the ante room. He finds the Führer at his desk Ribbentrop is stunning by the window. Schmidt translates the ultimatum for them.

"On Friday, August 25th, two days after news of the molotov Ribbentrop pact is broken, Hitler's secretly confirms the order to invade Poland. Although he will defer the date. The French ambassador tells Hitler the same thing that Neville Henderson, the British ambassador, did. To make them matter quite clear, I give you my word that the French army will fight with the side of Poland, if that country should be attacked. Over the weekend, there is a huge military build up along Germany's eastern frontier. In the coming days, there is a last minute flurry of activity. The Swedish associates are goring shuttle back and forth between London and Berlin, promoting half baked solutions. Henderson goes to see Ribbentrop. But the pair nearly end up in a fist fight and have to be separated. French premier daladier tries one last appeal, speaking to Hitler as an old frontline soldier. But it's no use. Hitler cancels his annual Nazi rally at Nuremberg. This year's event had been titled, with no sense of irony, the rally of peace. He places his armed forces on high alert. Commercial air traffic between Britain and the continent comes to a halt. Hitler makes his final offer on the morning of Thursday, August 31st. Unless the poles are prepared to send a delegation and sign over the corridor and dancing by noon, he will begin his attack, the next day, September 1st. Even if they were agreeable, it's an impossible deadline. Reinhard Heydrich is already on the move. He has sent SS detachment disguised as Polish soldiers to create incidents along the border. At gleiwitz, they attack and occupy a radio station. From here they broadcast anti German slogans. They brought along some props. A truckload of dead bodies from the concentration camps. These they dress in German uniforms, riddle with bullets and scatter around. It's called grimly, operation canned goods. On air, it's reported that Hitler had made a very reasonable proposal to Poland, a 16 point plan, and this is how they repay him. The invasion can't just begin, the has to be a preamble. There has to be a false flag. It's like they have a textbook, which they're following. So the border incident at gleiwitz convinces Germans at a certain level that they're being attacked by the post. Now you ask how can they be so naive? How can they not know about false flags, incidents? Well, I think the answer is that people become co-conspirators in their own self delusion. In other words, they're willing patches for Hitler's insane claim that the polls are invading them. At four 45 a.m., on Friday, September 1st, in Danzig harbor. The German cruiser Schleswig holstein starred shelling a military depot on the shore. All along the lengthy land border, German artillery units opened up. At the same time, Luftwaffe bomber started hitting Polish airfields. At 9 40 a.m., Hitler heads for the Kroll opera house to address his rubber stamp Reichstag, costumed in a field gray uniform. Both humble Corporal and supreme commander of the armed forces. Who fights with poison will be fought with poison. He screeches. He says that he now wants nothing more than to be the first soldier of the German Reich. The poles put up a heroic resistance. But with half a million Wehrmacht troops now rolling in from the west. They don't stand a chance. They're pitting mounted cavalry against the state of the art Panzer tanks. Within 48 hours, the Polish air force is obliterated. Within 48 more, the Polish army will have been routed. That night the cities of Britain go into blackout. Panes of glass are now crisped with tape to prevent shattering. And everybody is carrying a standard issue gas mask. In the cities of Germany, it's exactly the same. In Westminster, at 7 44 p.m., on Saturday, September the second, an ashen prime minister Chamberlain goes to the House of Commons to make a statement. With emotion catching at his voice, he says that unless German troops withdraw from Poland immediately. His majesty's government will be bound to take action. Members push for an ultimatum to be sent.

"Steps back into the picture. The Italian leader had been somewhat miffed not to be forewarned of Hitler's check land grab. So just a few days later, he'd begun his own military adventure. On April 7th, Mussolini launched an invasion of Albania. On the somewhat flimsy pretext that it had once been part of the Roman Empire. The military action was distinctly one sided, but Italian forces still made a hash of the operation. Il duce relays an awkward truth to Hitler. Italy won't be up to full military strength until 1943. Plus Mussolini's getting rather jittery about the prospect of war with Britain and France. Italy's former allies. The pact of steel commits not just to a military alliance if attacked. But also when attacking. It was something at the grand signing ceremony while posturing in his helmet medals that Mussolini hadn't quite thought through. He wonders whether the European powers might not sit around the conference table again. But nobody once said anymore, especially not the Germans. Professor Helen Roche. At the beginning, as nazism was first being conceived to Hitler really so Mussolini is a fanboy. And even in their first few meetings, you then Mussolini was very much the one who had the whip hands and was kind of showing off here's my wonderful dictatorship like what if you got to show me and it's very interesting how as the 30s progressed. That balance of power really shifts as Hitler begins to really exert power in Europe in a way that Mussolini hasn't been able or hasn't been that interested in affecting Doctor John curatola the Germans look upon Italy as an unsinkable aircraft carrier. They're in a Mediterranean. Geographically commands that area. And so there's that benefit as a fascist power and geographically with regard to southern Europe, Hitler is willing to accede southern Europe to Italian power because he's got bigger fish to fry. But the problem is the Italian army ain't the German Army and their ability to man train equip and conduct tactical action is a significantly less than that of the Germans. Italy may be having a wobble, but the Führer is soon warmed by the news just in from the east. Talks between the Soviet Union, Britain and France and finally hit the buffers. That day, August 22nd, he sends Ribbentrop on his mission to seal the deal. The next evening, after his flight, Ribbentrop finds himself sitting opposite Joseph Stalin. They are joined by the new commissar for foreign affairs. Vyacheslav molotov molotov wears a cheap suit and wire rimmed glasses. With his clipped mustache, she exudes the demeanor of a math teacher. But appearance is a deceptive. Molotov is deeply implicated in the atrocities of the great purge, and is as cutthroat as anyone in the Politburo. Like many of the Soviet high ups, he goes under a catchy nickname. Molotov means sledgehammer. Finnish resistance fighters will call a homemade petrol bomb after him. The molotov cocktail. Ribbentrop, the former sparkling wine salesman, comes out with all the expected platitudes about mutual respect about Germany and Russia working side by side. Stalin cuts to the quick. For years, we've poured buckets of manure on one another, he says. In the PG version of his pronouncement. That should not stop us from coming to an understanding. Plus, there's some territories he's interested in himself. He gets out the little notebook he carries around everywhere and reads them off. Finland, the Baltic states, and bessarabia, modern day Moldova. Molotov spells it out. After going Dutch on Poland, the Soviet Union and Germany must draw up a line of demarcation. Define their spheres of influence. We've been top explains that he'll have to ask his boss. He leaves to use the telephone. His ambassador advises him that he must take his time, not appear too eager in negotiations. So we've been dropped stopped off for a bite to eat. He returns an hour later. Hitler has agreed. Officially, this will be a non aggression pact. But the territorial division will be included as a so called secret protocol. The paperwork is signed. Commemorative photographs are taken. Stalin drinks to Hitler's good health. At that very moment, at the berghof, Hitler is holding court with his top military commanders. His admirals inform him that the pocket battleship Graf spee, a surface raider,

"On April 20th, 1939, Adolf Hitler turns 50 an age, he thought he might not live beyond. You'll make it just to 56. The Wehrmacht lays on the biggest military parade that Berlin has ever seen. The arms limitation of Versailles restricted the army to 100,000 men, it's now pushing 8 times that number. The march past includes the Waffen SS its men clad in black. There used to be merely Hitler's bodyguard. Now, headed by Heinrich Himmler, the SS are ready for the battlefield. An army within an army. The day has been declared a national holiday. 2 million people line the road. The birthday boy is showered with presents. Gunsmith, Karl Walter, gives him a solid gold PPK pistol. Albert speer brings a scale model of a futuristic Berlin. Ferdinand Porsche hands Hitler the keys to a brand new convertible Volkswagen beetle. Even though the Führer can't drive, churches across the fatherland hold special masses to confer blessings upon the Führer. Even the Pope sends his best wishes. In 1930 9, the majority of German thought, yes, beside had been unfair, but there was also a memory of the horrors of war in Germany. And in a way, the reason why Hitler was maybe the domestically most popular world leader by the time he turned 50 in April of 1939 was because he was seen as kind of a general butler's in Germany. Yes, he was building at the army. He was pursuing a muscular foreign policy, but ultimately he was achieving all this without a single drop of blood being spilled. But this open display of militarism sets alarm bells ringing. President Roosevelt reminds Hitler of his professed desire for peace. Hitler replies with a speech broadcast across Europe and the U.S., in which he mocks Roosevelt. Amid much background laughter. Palestina. The axis agreement with Italy, the pact of friendship, is upgraded into a full blown military alliance. The more macho pact of steel. The Polish corridor Danzig, the business of Lehman's realm, the securing a food supplies, it all points to one thing. Poland must be destroyed. There is just one final piece of the puzzle to fall into place. Hitler knows that talks between the British, French and Russians have been stalling. So he decides to make his play. The Führer has a nice little proposition. How would Stalin feel if they divvied up Poland between them? The west are not serious in their overtures Hitler says in a war against Germany, Britain and France will simply use Russia to take the heat off them. They will be cannon fodder. To Stalin, the shiny new armies of Hitler and Mussolini are starting to look the more attractive option. Plus Poland has spent much of its existence under Russian rule. Russia would very much like it back. In private, Hitler is already preparing to do the dirty on Stalin. He was still invade the USSR eventually, just as the outlined in mein kampf, think of this as a temporary necessity, a pact with Satan, as he puts it. To drive out the devil. Hitler waits out the summer. He goes walking in his beloved Bavarian Alps. He knows that things have a habit of going his way. And soon they do. With the encouragement of Berlin, Nazi officials in Danzig stop cooperating with Polish customs officers. Order in the free city begins breaking down. 6000 feet above the berghof at the top of a mountain is a brand new tea room. Martin bormann has had it built for his Führer. It's called the kale steinhouse, nicknamed the eagle's nest. Another birthday present. 12 workers died during its hasty construction. But Hitler will never much care for the place. It's a bit too high. Nonetheless, he invites the League of Nations high commissioner here. While his guests struggles with his vertigo, Hitler lays it out in his most diplomatic terms that if things don't turn out exactly to his liking, I will smash the poles so completely that not a single trace of Poland will be found afterwards he screams. Like a lightning bolt, I will strike with the full power of my mechanised army. The power of which the poles have no idea. Very well, M Chancellor replies the crestfallen commissioner.

"Of an empty bluff. Hitler mocks Chamberlain. What right do the British have to interfere in German affairs? And as for their guarantee to Poland, I'll give them a stew they can choke on them, he snarls. It's a decrees that a military solution to the Polish problem is required. In terms of a general war, he will leave it to the western powers to make their declarations. Let them be the aggressors. He still doesn't believe they've got the stomach for it. Even if they did, how on earth logistically can they even come to Poland's aid? And as for the Soviet Union, while the Nazis have got wind that Polish foreign minister Beck has been in London. Lunging with the new king George VI becht tells the monarch that Poland doesn't trust the communists any more than the Nazis. This will soon turn out to be quite prophetic. How do the Germans know all this? Because British intelligence is woefully lacking. In Berlin, ambassador Neville Henderson uses an unsecure phone line. They've been Tapping it for months. It's no different in Rome. At the weekends, a professional safecracker breaks into the British embassy and makes copies of all their classified documents. Still, if the Soviets do align themselves with the west, it will cause problems. Hitler is going to have to get creative and rather quickly. Ideologically, there's nothing more anathema to Hitler's Nazi philosophy than bolshevism. Though some would say they're not much different. Under the totalitarian Stalin, governance of the Soviet Union has proven just as murderously ruthless as Hitler's Germany. Perhaps at this point, even more so. Stalin's great purge of 1937, so as many as 700,000 killed. Including much of the Soviet military leadership, as a consequence, the Red Army in its current condition is not a patch on the modern fighting forces, now being trained and equipped by Hitler. They both have something each other once. The Russians could use some German military know her. The Germans covet the Soviet

"German Reich is terribly unfair. In Britain, conscription is introduced. Armaments production is stepped up. A bear craft especially. Old frontline biplanes are being replaced by a new generation of fighters. Hurricanes, Spitfires. If Chamberlain has done anything, it's to buy the country some time. Military overtures are made to Poland, even further afield to Greece, turkey, Romania, to anyone who can contain German expansion. Britain and France also begin talks with the Soviet Union. In Prague, the swastika flies from the harassing palace, seats of the old kings of Bohemia. Happy Hitler, through pilsner goggles, declares that this is a teutonic city, a Germanic one. Any fool can see it. He has liberated Prague from the clutches of the ghastly Slavs. Oh. And better get started on rooting out the Jews. Slovakia becomes a Nazi client state. Hungary and Poland are soon laying claim to their own ethnic enclaves in the east of the country. Czechoslovakia is no more. The Czech heartland becomes the protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. Nazi Germany has its first vassal. Its first colony. Those eastern neighbors scavenging on the czechoslovakian carcass should be careful what they wish for. And none more so than Poland. It, too, is being sucked into the machinations of Berlin. The chief cause of resentment for Hitler is the existence of the Polish corridor. Another legacy of hated Versailles this 70 mile wide strip of land has been carved straight through German territory. It's been done in order to give the Polish state access to the Baltic Sea. The history of this region, old pomerania is complex. Overlordship has been contested through the centuries. But Germany's misgivings are evident to anyone with access to a map. The Polish corridor has severed east Prussia from the main body of Germany. Its great old port, Danzig, has also been confiscated. It's been turned into a free city under League of Nations rule, linked with Poland in a customs union. Not only is this a humiliation radius Hitler, but once again, ethnic Germans have been cut off from the Reich. And such an injustice can not stand. A week after his entry into Prague, for an encore, Hitler heads to spheno munda on the Baltic. There, alongside loyal admiral Ryder, he boards the cruiser deutschland. Hitler is not a good sailor. He gets violently seasick. But he does his best to keep his lunch down as they sail to the eastern extremity of the German coastline. To the small port of memel. Just like Danzig, its rule has been awarded to another party. In this case, Lithuania. As per the playbook, mammal is already awash with trumped up tales of ethnic Germans being brutalized at the hands of their new governors. From ship to shore, a green looking Hitler coordinates the final twisting of the thumbscrews. Lithuania must give up the town to the Reich, or have it obliterated. Maimon is duly ceded. So far, Germany has been accommodating towards Poland. A ten year non aggression pact was signed in 1934. Poland is no pushover either. It beat the Soviet Union in a short war in 1920. The invasion of Poland still lies in the future, no one knows yet how easy it ultimately was for Germany to invade Poland, Poland was still seen as a major military power. So they pretend to still going on that Poland and Germany are getting along with each other. But just a month after Munich, joachim von Ribbentrop is on maneuvers the Polish ambassador is invited to lunch at the grand hotel in bergdorf garden. The Nazi foreign minister wants to run a couple of ideas by him. What if Germany were to create its own transport link across the Polish corridor? An outer barn and a railway. Also, how about the return of Danzig to German control, but with poem and maintaining free access and usage? The real threat to their joint security comes in the shape of Bolshevik Russia, he reminds. None of this cozy enough to Moscow, not a good idea. Much better the Germans and poles stand side by side. In return, Germany is willing to extend its non aggression pact to 25 years. Play its cards right, and there could be future spoils for Poland in Ukraine. And he has some handy hints regarding Poland's own Jewish problem. Little does ambassador lipski know in the Nazis hunt for living space, Poland is the next designated acquisition. He is telling the poles he is telling the world that this is still only about undoing the Versailles settlement. Of course, at the end of the day, it doesn't matter too much what the polls think. In the perfect world, you would create a situation where the Polish government will say, all right, then so we happily succeed those territories to you. But that's just not going to happen. In Hitler knows that. Polish foreign minister josep Beck is the next dignitary to be invited to the berkoff. For him, there is no Hitler hairdryer. Far from it, the Führer is the perfect host. This is all smoke and mirrors. As in the sudetenland, as in memo, there are the usual noises offstage. Histrionic outrages about the alleged Polish mistreatment of the 800,000 Germans living in Danzig and the corridor. Beck summons the German ambassador and warns him off intervention. What the hell is Germany playing at? He thought they had a relationship. Any attempt to change the status of Polish territory would be regarded as an act of war. In London, prime minister Neville Chamberlain is now an ill man. His tireless efforts to keep peace have taken a huge toll on his health. He will be dead in just over 18 months. In his own way, a casualty of the war that Hitler is about to unleash. Having been made to look a fool once he will not let it happen again. He makes a categorical offer of military assistance, should Polish independence come under threat. The French have joined him in these assurances, he says. It was clear that Munich was dad that the idea that she could somehow have an amicable solution that included the Germans that was just not happening. And what really happens there is that both Britain and France pivot towards a policy of containment of deterrence and this is the context in which Britain gives the security assurance to Poland. They really kind of drawing the line in the center there. And if you cross that, there will be war. There might be no great love in Paris and London for Poland at that time. But there is this red line, and once you cross it, there will be war, but Hitler ultimately sees this as a kind

"Conference at the end of September had been Britain and France's final appeal to reason. But now both governments know they're dealing with a madman. Meanwhile, the Reich's armed forces are expanding at a phenomenal rate. The German public continues to hail Hitler's every move. Greeting each triumph with an unbridled fanaticism. Professor Nicholas of shaughnessy. His photographer, Hoffman, was more than a photographer, he's actually Hitler's image maker, produced a photojournal Hitler in his homeland, which was these incredible pictures of a kind of royal and almost actually saintly progression through Austria, these were showed, not just with film and newsreel, but pictures with drawings, recordings, speeches, it was not just the momentum and dynamism, which had all the world in its headlights. It's actually the associated and considered a material which went with it to actually create the imagery. He left the world breathless. As soon as the ink on the Munich agreement being blotted, then Hitler starts going beyond its remit. In 1939, in his new year's message, to the citizens of the Reich. He makes clear that control of the sedan line will be extended as he puts it to the pacification of Czechoslovakia. Privately, he uses another word. Liquidation professor Thomas Weber and this is all within the logic of Hitler's thinking because ultimately, as far as Hitler's concern, this wasn't just about bringing all Germans together under one roof. It was about creating a state that was strong enough to be safer all times is state that was sufficiently large and that had the kind of natural resources that would allow Germany to survive for all times, so therefore Hitler is moving towards the territory that is the lowest hanging fruit that is Czechoslovakia. Taking Czechoslovakia will require the technicality of a justification. But that can always be arranged. In February, Hitler orders Joseph Goebbels is propaganda minister to circulate tales of ethnic Germans being brutalized. There's already tension between the Czechs and the Slovaks. The Slovaks are uneasy that power lies with Prague. Not their city of Bratislava. Slovak nationalists are itching to rise up. All they need is a little encouragement. The Czechoslovak president is Emile hasha is an old school ultra conservative on March 90 dismisses the regional Slovak government. The oldest Czech troops into Slovakia and declares martial law, but he's struggling to maintain order in his own patch. In Prague, Nazi sympathizers are marching through wenceslas square. The Führer elixir's lips and summons is generals. Nice mister Hitler, kindly neighbor, offers the check state his protection, and urges most strongly that they consider this generous proposal. Meanwhile the Nazis back channel to the Slovak nationalist leader, a man called Joseph. The chubby priest is soft soaked. And prompted to proclaim independence. The helpful mister Ribbentrop has even drafted the text for him. The Slovak republic is declared on March 14th. That same day president hasher is summoned to Berlin. Just like Chancellor shush nigga, Austria before him. He's walking into the lion's den. Old and ill. The Czech president has been unable to fly to the German capital. He has instead had to travel up by train. It's a detail not lost on his hosts. There is the standard diplomatic flummery, then hasha is made to walk endlessly through the chancellery's labyrinth of corridors. Along a specially choreographed extended route. When he finally gets to Hitler's office, he's made to sit and wait outside, but two whole hours. Hitler apparently has gone off to watch a movie. At one 15 a.m., utterly exhausted. Hasha is finally shown in. It's quite the scene. He enters a darkened room featuring the Führer at his desk, backlit by lamps. His henchmen, Ribbentrop, goring, keitel, are all ranged behind him. A Tableau of intimidation. We can do this the easy way or the hard way, says the Nazi godfather. Sign over the Czech state right now or at 6 a.m.? My boys will go in. Oh, and beautiful Prague, chuckles goring will be reduced to rubble. Hitler actually uses the word extermination. That is what awaits the check people. Faced at this, Asha does what anyone else in this situation would do. He suffers a heart attack. Even the Nazis hadn't meant to push things quite this far. Hitler panics. What if he gets accused of hashes murder? Fortunately, he has his personal physician on hand. The shady doctor Theo morell. Hitler's quack injects the ailing president back to life. Just enough for him at three 55 a.m. to put his wobbly hand to the document of surrender. A dawn, German troops invade, unopposed. A giddy Hitler rushes out into the front office. In a rare euphoric moment, he invites his secretaries to kiss him. Girls, this is the greatest triumph of my life he declares. I shall go down in history as the greatest German. Later that day march the 15th Wehrmacht jackboots are trampling over Prague's medieval cobbles. This time, it's not a homecoming. There are no flowers. In a grim sleet storm, the citizens look on with silence with fear. Hitler, the excited puppy dog wipes the lipstick of his cheeks, and travels south to join the invasion party. In Prague's old town, he even has a beer. In London and Paris, Chamberlain and daladier cut solemn figures. Hitler's promises and signed declarations were not worth the paper they were written on. The mood shifts. Opinion rapidly changed. But for a very long period, the country was a 1000% behind chambered in. You can buy Chamberlain iconography from their period from that very brief period. When he was the most popular man in British history, who'd saved us from war, at Munich, he may have made a few unfortunate compromises. But he'd made World War never again possible. And so this view of Chamberlain as a kind of utter vegetable, the ultimate loser, a tragic man, a weak, rabbit light, civic, bureaucrat, staring at the headlights of the greater

"August 22nd, 1939. Evening. We're a temple of airport in Berlin. With darkness falling, joachim von Ribbentrop, foreign minister of the Third Reich, walks across the runway. There's a frisson of excitement amongst the Nazi officials gathered. Those privileged few with security clearance, the ones who know the purpose of his mission. Ribbentrop mounts the steps of a giant Fokker wolf condor. Its engines hum, ready for take off. The tail fin is emblazoned with a bright red band. On it, a huge black on white swastika. In his fine tailored suit, Ribbentrop smiles for the authorized newsreel camera. Once aboard he waves from the cabin window. The plane climbs up into the sky and sets a course with the eastern horizon. The next day, at noon, Russian time, it taxis to a halt in Moscow. Ribbentrop disembarks in a leather trench coat. Though summer, it's unseasonably chilly in Russia. But then everything about this voyage is strained. A step into the unknown when we've been dropping is greeted by his opposite number, the two men are unsure at first, whether they should even shake hands. It's an unusual sight for everyone. The swastika hanging next to the hammer and sickle. Nazism and communism side by side. These two sworn enemies are certainly bodying up. Ribbentrop climbs into a car.

What adjustments have you have you seen on your end with what you and your clients are doing. And and then.

You wanna have when you look at that billboard and you finished your title. It should be benefit rich. It should contain specifics because specific through two things incredibly well. They increase believability desirability. So when i say. I get very specific inside.

In the British, Um my six around my five or whatever was instigated to overthrow a legitimate ruler there. They've done that it countless countries of color revolutions of Poland's and chuckles evac you and, um Ukraine and you name it. You name any Eastern bloc country that's gone through that. This is exactly just taken that template on put it on the on the United States and what you're seeing. There is just a replay. What we've seen in the United States to other countries around the world over the last, say, 50, or 60 years. Had. You've been a regular on this platform for years, and when we were speaking about Venezuela, there's some years back when it was when it was melting, imploding. Um, you have way discuss that when that was occurring from economic financial standpoint, the people that had real assets that being precious metals were the ones that Potentially would come out. If and when that would occur when they would come out. The other end of the tunnel would come out potentially in the best financial shape. He said, essentially saved. There's no question about it if if the U. S dollar is one of the going to be one of the casualties of this, and it's already declined over 10% over the last year. And the only way for people the good people of Venezuela or the good people of any country that suffer hyperinflation, whether it be them or Rhodesia, or pick any country or Zimbabwe. I'm sorry, Zimbabwe now. You think any country were the printing presses have been run, non stop for whatever length the time Argentina, Brazil all these countries. This is coming to a country near you call the United States where it's a very thin edge of the wedge, and the only way to protect yourself is with those precious metals and I'd advise people to buy as much of it is they can afford. And and and when you look at what the banking syndicate has been doing, and you look at what they've been doing over a number of years time, in fact, The banking syndicate and tell me if I'm wrong, You're the expert, but my analysis is they have been accumulating. A huge amount of physical, gold and silver. Essentially give us giving us an indicator of where we were going. This is precisely the truth. Truth that's been going on for more than 10 years and that it's been a stealth accumulation. Uh, Russia went from, like almost nothing attitude, 2300 tons. China's accumulating it. Poland's accumulating at you pick a country and they've been accumulating gold. And J. P. Morgan, according to Silver analysts, Ted Butler's currently sitting on a billion ounces of physical silver And over 25 million ounces of gold. And the amount of money that's being poured into the gold and silver exchange traded funds and depositories in this world just keeps accelerating. Ah, every week. It doesn't stop. It doesn't slow down at all. SmartMoney deep state money that knows what's coming has been buying silver and gold in the CTS and you can see it in my charts every Saturday. Has been going on since about 2000 and 13 or 14, and it is accelerated extensively in the last 12 months. So the smart money is going there.
