4 Absurdly Easy Things I Do That Make Life Disproportionately Better by David Cain
"Absurdly easy things. I do that. Make life disproportionately better by david. Cain of wrapped a to dot com. Lots of the things. We spend our energy on our worthwhile but some are a better deal than others. The benefits of my weight routine for example are worth much more than the effort takes. But that effort is still pretty significant. You have to lift a two hundred pound barbell quite a few times for anything. Good to happen. There are few things. I do and sometimes still failed to do that. Take almost no effort. And somehow make my life significantly better. As far as i can tell these four small things are the best deal going number one shining the sink before bed. I don't know where. Or when but i remember reading about someone who swore that her habit of her saint before bed was the linchpin of productivity and wellbeing. I have tried. It and ken corroborate her ridiculous claim. Readers have since pointed out that this is from the fly lady making your morning coffee beside a shiny sink is empowering self affirming experience main coffee beside a dull sink containing even a single dirty fork sitting in a puddle is comparatively draining and dehumanizing at a stray bloated noodle or two and it becomes strangely life. Destroy in my experience. One of two different people emerged from that coffee making process depending on the condition of the sink. One of them is sharp and ready for life. The other must fight his way to his desk from under some great -sential wait some grimy psychic debris that's inseparable from the maroon super amnon that greeted him this morning.

I use one of those magic white pass with a bit of comment and water. Wipe down the rim. Many chrome fixtures with spray in a dry cloth takes forty seconds. Might change your life number two going outside with absolutely no plan. At some point. In my adult life i developed a strange seemingly self-defeating habit at the supermarket i wouldn't bother crossing the store to get the last item on my list. Part of me knew that leaving that one thing that would make a necessary to walk six blocks to the corner store the next day. This is my sub-conscious screaming for help. The quiet wise part of my mind sabotaged my efficient supermarket routine in order to create an excuse to travel somewhere by foot. I now see our walking as an essential nutrient. It should require an excuse. Will we need to excuse ourselves from the kind of perverse post industrial arrangement where it is even possible to spend a whole day without traveling any significant distance outside on foot fresh air and bodily movement or always healthy of course but to get the full disproportionately worthwhile benefits of neighborhood. Walking is essential that you don't know where you're going if you have a destination or even a regular walking routine then you risk making the walking itself into a task something to be done with rather than something to do when i step out of the building. I don't know if i'm going to turn left or right until i'm doing it. I've gone on hundreds of these destination less walks and a regular route as not emerged. It turns out my body knows how to create a closed pauley on without my mind having to think about it. There's something life-affirming about any enterprise in which you rely on moment to moment intuition instead of planning and it's just a walks you can't muck anything up too badly at every corner.

You'll end up at home somehow number three sitting on the floor and doing nothing for a little while blaise. Pascal famously said that all human miseries arise from our inability to do this.

DOJ won't reveal congressional candidate who asked for, received hacked info on their opponent
"With less than 100 days before the presidential election. U. S intelligence officials are warning that Russia and other adversaries are once again interfering in our democratic process. In 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his intelligence agencies to create chaos in our system, using a combination of social media manipulation, propaganda and other dirty tricks. President. Trump's Justice Department currently has at least two open cases against Russian citizens for disrupting the 2016 presidential and congressional elections. As we first reported last November, 12 Russian military officers are still at large, charged with breaking into the Democratic Party's computers in 2016. Stealing compromising information and selectively releasing it to undermine specific candidates. There's no evidence of similar operations against Republicans in 2016. With the 2020 election's just around the corner. Ah cautionary tale, the Russian hack. The Russians never left. I can guarantee you in 2016. After this all into news. They never left. They didn't stop doing what they're doing. This wasn't just a one time thing. No way. Russia doesn't do it that way. Robert Anderson should know. He spent 21 years inside the cloak and dagger world of spies and hackers overseeing the FBI's counterintelligence and cyber divisions. And tracking Moscow spy agencies, an alphabet of artifice, the FSB S V, R, and especially the G R U G. RU is military intelligence. So when we look at the attacks that happened during a presidential Races in 2016. You had military organisations inside of Russia attacking our infrastructure. So are the hackers or are the soldiers? So they're both on in most cases in most these units or not just hackers. They're probably some of the best mathematical minds in Russia. These air seasoned professionals that have worked away up the ranks to be in these units. To carry out the strategic attacks on behalf of that country. These are the hacker soldiers from G R U unit 26165, who, according to the Justice Department were responsible for breaking and entering into the Democratic Party's computers remotely from Moscow. Their names, ranks and faces are now on the FBI's most wanted list for stealing, among other things, the Democrats, strategic plans detailed targeting data and internal polling. G R U Colonel Alexander also joke commanded a separate unit. 744551 of his officers was in charge of spreading this stolen material to political operatives, bloggers and the media. Another hack state election boards. It wasn't some £400 guy in his parents Basement. No, this was a well choreographed military operation. With units that not only were set up specifically to hack into obtain information, but other units that were used for psychological warfare or weaponizing that this is not an operation that was just put together haphazardly. So that was the 26165 unit. The Justice Department's National security division is overseeing the Russian hacking case once they're doing that keystroke monitoring, Assistant Attorney General John Dimmers runs the division. Along with the deputies, Adam Hickey and Sean knew DOJ attorney Heather Al Pino worked with special counsel Mueller on the Russian indictments all have access to the underlying intelligence and have no doubt the rush. Shins interfered in the 2016 election. This really happened. Yes, that really happened. And we believe that if we had to, we could prove that in court tomorrow, using only admissible non classified evidence to 12 jurors. You ever expect to get the 12 Russian officials The trial. I would be surprised, But the purpose of the indictment isn't just that, although that's certainly one of the purposes, the purposes of this kind of indictment is even, uh, to educate the public. For a legal document. The 29 page indictment is a page Turner It. Details how U. S intelligence agencies tracked each defendant's actions, sometimes by the keystroke, revealing the fictitious names and phony emails used to infiltrate the Democrats, computers. And tracing the stolen data on its circuitous route from Washington, D. C. To Moscow. The information in the indictment is very detailed. You have descriptions of the Russian agents. Typing. Into their computers. Obviously, I can't go into too much detail because I don't want to reveal investigative methods. But the inside here is that behind every one of those Keyboard's is not night P address. It's a human being those indicted G R U agents. The U. S. Says one team, working out of a building in Moscow called the Tower created a website and a provocative character to disseminate this stolen material. Lucifer 2.0 So goose over 2.0 is a fictional online persona. It's all an effort. The Russian side to hide their involvement. And these guys are pretending to be one lone hacker. Correct, and that works. What it gives them is plausible deniability. Right. They don't need to work 100% as long as the Russians, Khun say. Wasn't us. Posing as goose A for 2.0. The Russians offered up stolen documents to Julian Assange, Jas wiki leaks and self proclaimed dirty trickster Roger Stone. It was all part of a broad campaign to disrupt the presidential election. But there was another less well known part of the Russian operation to undermine Democrats running for Congress. It started as large document dumps where goose for 2.0 was kind of taunting and saying, I have more Kelli Ward Burton was executive director of the D. Triple C. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. When the Russians hacked the committee's computers, these bullet points at the top are the summary for how we need to win. They swiped and dumped on the Internet material, she told us cost millions of dollars to produce. Battle plans for congressional races, demographic research on voters and extensive dossiers on the weaknesses of their own candidates. So when we deliberate internally about anything, you know that's not intended to be made public, and that's what makes this so important to understand these as stolen documents. It's not different than Watergate. It's not different than When Republicans came into the DNC and stole documents from the file cabinets. It's the cyber version of that they came into our office and they stole Our documents. Documents were never intended to be public. And then they used that in the election, even Democrat party bosses or questioning his character. Ward was shocked when Republicans used the stolen internal materials in this negative ad. We reach out to them and ask them, you know, we way, said We've been the victims of a cyber attack by a foreign adversary. Will you make a commitment not to use any of these stolen materials in In the campaigner in the 2016 election, and they wouldn't make a commitment to do so, she says. In the months leading up to the elections, Russian tactics evolved, the indiscriminate document dumps became more frequent and strategic. There would be thousands of documents that would show up on one day and then they got smarter and he started to really specific documents. Related to our specific races or documents that were in art most targeted states and are most targeted areas.
The Art of Acceptance With Scott Haas
"Right now we've had to accept a lot of uncertainty and today's guest has spent the last several years practicing method of acceptance that we all can learn from. Rare is a Japanese principle of acceptance and today's psychologists. Scott. Hawes talks about his book why be happy which looks at how this practice works, what it can do for us and how you can implement it in your own life. Scott welcome to live. Happy now. Hi Paul. Thank you so much for having me on I. Really appreciate it. Well. We had to have you on because you have a book with a name that is with the title that almost seems contrary to what we talk about it live happy now because it asks why be happy. So I wanted to find out first of all, what's the short answer to that? Well, I mean it's a an approach to happiness that's very different than we think of his happiness say in the states. or in general west, the Western world. So we think of our own happiness here is personal and we pursue it and it's in our constitution or the print right to pursue happiness whereas in Japan, it's not really thought of that way. It's thought of as what can I do accept the situation as it is. In order to either live with it or to make changes, it's not about your own happiness, its about the happiness of your family, the happiness of community, and it's not as if the Japanese of cornered the market on that I mean certainly in the states, we have a lot of happiness, our communities and our religious institutions and so on. But their baseline is not about personal habits. So why be happy when others are unhappy? What can you do to make someone? Else's Day a little bit better. And this. It's an interesting concept and it's one that is called I'm GonNa. Let you pronounce it out. Thanks a lot. Japanese under the Best I can so I would say UK regular although my Japanese friends if there were to be listening to say Oh Scott that's wrong. That's not how you say it. So it's it's either you Katie who were UK ru depending on whether it's a noun or verb and in a rough sense it means acceptance depending on who you're saying it to and where you're saying. And where did you first start discovering this in? How did you begin studying it? So I started going to Japan for the first time in my life in two thousand and two I had come across Japanese novels when I was a teenager and Japanese movies when I was teenager and I really liked them a lot but I kind of dropped it for a long time. And pretty famous chef in New, York invited me to join him. He was going there for emotional trip for lost in translation and he dragged me kicking and screaming to Japan. I had no interest in going at all but he took me there and I started to see how people behave there. That's very different than here, and the idea was when you were with people there to create silences decreed acceptance of others and was really just spectacularly interesting. So the more I learned about it I just not I personal experience the more I read about it, and over the last eighteen years I've been really blessed to have a lot of good friends over the years in. Japan. So they've taught me a lot. In how is it that you begin to practice acceptance versus this pursuit of happiness with what we tend to to be about. Here's the deal I genuinely do not think that one culture has the edge over the others. I don't idealize Japan by any stretch of the imagination I don't idealize in any culture for that matter. I don't think I don't think most people do, but you can take what they have their an add to what we're doing here. So if I would have written this book for a Japanese audience I would have written the reverse of it I would. have. Said you need to be more thoughtful about your own individual happiness? You need to think about what what you like to do each day as opposed to what do others like in terms of our culture here in the states research in any in a general way, it's a very creative vibrant culture that we live in the United States are always changing no matter what what side of the political spectrum you're on things are always changing and so. A practical way with the Japanese do as they slow it down. So they do things like. You know the famous tea ceremony, but it's not just not they take. If you go to a coffee salon in any one of the big cities, they'll take a long time for you to make for them to make the coffee for you or even a cocktail is it's a one ounce pour in takes a while for them to make or as I say the t they also take baths every day they take they tried to take naps a lot and when you're with Japanese people, even old friends that I have there. As much silence in the in engagement as there is talk. So they create spaces for people to observe and purpose of the observation beyond the practical stuff is to create a consensus. So for example, they're not really big on opinions, but they want to have a situation where. Generally. Speaking people there will come to some agreement some consensus that we all are seeing the same thing or all are feeling the same thing in the closest that I can think of it here in the states is Thanksgiving where no matter as I say, no matter no matter what part of the political spectrum you're around matter who you are no matter where you're from generally speaking most American homes were all eating the same thing. We're all having similar conversations and that's really kind of how the Japanese operated on a regular daily basis. There's a way in which is kind of conformity that creates an acceptance of others you agree with them or
User Coalition Fights To Keep Chinese App WeChat In U.S. Market
"President trump recently issued an executive order that would effectively ban the Chinese APP we chat in the United States starting. In September the order says the APP poses a threat to national security, but is a coalition of users who are trying to intervene. Here's NPR's John Ru which cloud you practices corporate and commercial law in the San Francisco Bay area most of his clients Chinese and they all use we chat so I maintain develop clients through. All, the time I. probably spend two hours each and every day. It's also how he communicates with his sister and eighty five year old mother back in China's Hunan Province. Her Mama when trump issued executive order Jew and other lawyers who also served the Chinese speaking community were alarmed. They discussed it in a we chat group naturally and decided to fight it in court. So they set up a nonprofit called the US we chat users. One of the lawyers from the we chat group she says, they plan to file a suit in the coming days. The group she says has no connection to the Chinese government or tencent the Chinese company that owns Wechat we are not interested in the politics behind us but one the government tries to resolve a problem they should try to minimize the harm. The executive order is the latest in a string of measures. The trump administration has taken against China in recent weeks. It prohibits quote transactions with which at and ten. The term is open to some interpretation, but legal experts expect that APP stores at the very least will have to remove we chat. Angus knee is a lawyer in Seattle. The executive arm is while with its rights determine that something is or is not a threat to American national security, but it's reasoning especially when it's actions have such a negative impact on such a racially kind of based minority needs to be well justified in while supported China's so-called great firewall blocks many Western communication and social media APPS making indispensable. But we chat sensors, sensitive messages, and like every other APP in China, it would be required to hand over information. Should the government ask they're definitely? Security risks to people using those technologies and we need to address that I just wish it was done. Really Ron. Debate is director of the citizen lab and Internet watchdog at the University of Toronto. What the trump administration did as a way I think almost like a nuclear option fighting in court will be tough though Bobby Chesney is a national security law expert at the University of Texas. Oh it's a hugely uphill battle. He says it'll be hard to win a case arguing that the executive order curtails free speech came without due process or amounts to the government taking away property or livelihood. The same holds for a case that says, the government hasn't supplied enough evidence of the risks that we poses a judge is also going to save them, but maybe that somehow helps them to different court bringing a suit raises the profile of the issue, and just might influence how the government interprets the word transaction and ultimately enforces the order. If the legal challenge doesn't pan out businesses like launchings restaurant chain easterly will have to make major adjustments. Hunan style eatery offers group deals, takes orders and stays in touch with thousands of customers in the bay area through we chat. With no dining in because of the pandemic Wong says, easterly is even more reliant on we chat. H.

"Italy, a month after women protest that lack of access to abortion during the covert restrictions the country removing the final obstacles to taking the abortion pill, While most European countries made the abortion pill more available during locked down, Italy suspended prescriptions in many parts. Now, in a move Italy's Health minister Roberto Esperanza, calls an important step forward for women's rights. Italy has lifted obstacles to the RU for 86 abortion pill, allowing women to take it on an outpatient basis and two up to nine weeks of pregnancy before women wanting to take the abortion pill had to stay in hospital for three days and could take it on Lee up to seven weeks when many women don't even realize they're pregnant.
My Best Programming Tips with Jason Swett
"I think it's easy to fall into the trap of wasting time by just like. Chasing this rabbit, chasing this rabbit, and if you step back and say if somebody came and looked over your shoulder and asked like hey. Are you actually trying to do right now? A lot of times. If you don't have an answer to that question, then it's like, what are you even doing so like? Anytime. You're coding and you're feeling like lost like you're just flailing around it can be hopeful to step back and say hang on a second. What am I actually trying to do right now and I catch myself doing this when I'm just like messing around and not getting anywhere I'm like hang on what's my goal again, and often the problem is that I don't have a clear goal and so just saying what it is that I'm trying to accomplish is so so helpful even going to the extent of writing down. Can Be really helpful because then it forces you to really be clear. See I read this one in terms of a group contacts or a context where I'm given a ticket that might be fairly vague and so when I look at the taking I, don't know what I need to do here and so I have all these clarifying questions that I need to do and when I try to do is once I can get those into a more technical format I liked to rewrite the ticket with the product managers you know. Acceptance on that so that way I can clearly articulate that goal. Yeah. That's interesting. If I saw a story that was too vague I would look at the story and say, this story is not what a call shovel ready. So shovel ready just means that it's Ready to begin work on it. And throughout my career I've I've had a lot of instances of the of the challenge where I get a story and it's not shovel ready. And I think a that's kind of the role of a scrum master. If you're working in agile methodology to go through the stories before they get to the point of being assigned to developers and making sure that they are sufficiently crisply defined to actually be worked on one of my tests that I that I do on stories when I when I look at him as I asked if we. gave this to an external qa person would that Qa person be able to read what's in the story and know what manual tests to be able to perform perform to know that this story is done and if that's not possible, then it's very likely that the story needs to be made more crisp, including a very clearly laid out definition of what it means to be done with that story. That's great. So moving onto the next tip, keep everything working all the time, and this is one that I have definitely failed to do before we have had to do a massive ru factoring and I realized halfway through that the behavior of my code has changed tests or failing I'm not sure which part of the code I've changed has caused this issue and I ended up having to kill the branch start all over again. So what's your tips around that? Yeah, that's painful. I've definitely had that experience myself a lot of times in the past, and that's why this is one of the one of the top tips in the sequence because in in my career, this one, his burned me a lot of the time. So there's not much to say about this other than like keep everything working all the time, which means like make a small change and then test everything. It is really helpful in these cases if you have good test coverage on your entire application, because what I will do is make a small change a very small commit maybe it's even just a one line commit. And then I'll push my commit up to Ci and I'll let the tests run on the whole application. I don't necessarily always wait for the whole entire test suite to run before I, continue my work because with my application right now, my test take like twenty minutes to run and I'm, not gonNA. Just sit and wait for twenty minutes while that's happening but I'll make a small change push up to see I make a small change push up to ci there's a little delay but that way at least if things start breaking, I know the exact small change that made things breaking so I can So I can know what the culprit is and then also in addition to the CI thing because that's a little bit peripheral. I will make a small change go into my browser and manually test. I'll make a small change and then run the test case that tests that exercises that line of code, and if that passes, I'll run the test that the whole test file that tests that whole class and stuff like that. Because yet, if you if you work for like hours or days and let things stop working, it's so much harder to go from not working to back to working than it is to keep everything working all the time I completely agree and this actually touches upon the next one. So the other day I googled the concept of atomic commits and you might know this but you are the number one result on Google search exciting. So Jason, could you explain what an atomic commit is? Yeah it's a commit VAT is only one thing. So. This is interesting I I, find myself wanting to read my own blog post so that I can answer this question more more intelligently I'll explain how I do my own commits. I don't usually do more than a few minutes at a time worth of coding I don't usually do more than. A few lines well, maybe like five to fifty lines is the average size of of my comments and I try to stay more toward the like ten or twenty lines into the spectrum per commit not that lines is like a hard metric that I adhere to. That's just how it happens to work out. and when I'm when I'm coding in front of people like when I'm teaching a class or something like that, the students are often surprised by how frequently I commit like sometimes, I'll just change one character and they'll commit and the they'll be like isn't that like so much overhead compared to the amount of work you did. But. No. What I'm doing is I'm keeping my commits atomic because like for example, if I change a piece of configuration in my application. And then I work on this unrelated feature and I spent like. Twenty minutes, and then I commit that thing I commit the feature change along with that unrelated configuration change. then. What if that configuration change causes a problem? Later, I might be doing my debugging research and discover that this commit introduced problem. But to me looks like this is this feature that I added. But really it's this configuration change that's buried way in it. That's really not obvious and that's unrelated to all the other code I changed. So makes that debugging lot harder. So when I commend I'm not necessarily always committing for the sake of the change that I made I'm committing for the sake of whatever changes I'M GONNA make. I want to keep this small change separate from whatever change comes after that so that each commit is only one thing. So again, that makes the debugging easier, and if you ever need to roll something back I had to do this just the other day where I made a change that my boss asked me to do. But then the next day my boss said actually can you put it back to the way? It was before because my tom because my commit was Atomic. All I had to do was revert one single commit and it was super easy to roll back.
Mexico Caves Reveal Ancient Ochre Mining
"Sometimes, discoveries seem so simple. You know basically we've found a bunch of holes in the ground that's Edward Reinhard he's an archaeologist and geologist at McMaster University in Ontario Canada, but you know ultimately very important holes in the ground reinhard on colleagues believe they've found some of the first clear evidence of mining activity in a system of caves in Kintana ru on the peninsula the fine dates back to between ten and twelve thousand years ago. These are some very early people that have come and migrated to the Americas via the during straight. But getting to what remains of these miners and the tools they laugh is a challenge like cave divers you got to be so careful you don't get lost. These caves systems in Mexico, which were once dry are now completely filled with water. Thanks to a warming climate and sea levels that rose over time winding passageways are narrow and dark, and the walls are made of unforgiving limestone porous and with sharp edges. Reinhard says the water that filled the caves has preserved everything. It's basically almost like you know somebody working at a factory, they turn the lights off and they went away and nobody ever came back when divers started telling reinhard about what they were seeing inside the cave. He decided to go for a dive himself. He found concentrations of charcoal meaning that the people who walked here thousands of years ago probably used fire to light their way and there are stone. Cairns which Reinhardt believes the people built as navigation markers. Also says lots of tools remain and they were made from the stalagmites that hung from the cave ceiling breaking off and then using use hammer. So you can see the percussion marks where they were banging up the you know breaking up the stone on the bottom. The discovery is in the journal Science advances. So what were these ancient people mining and prospecting for there is a little bit of sediment still on the wall of. The pit. So I grabbed a vial and my sampled island, grab some of the sediment and underwater the red light gets attenuated. So Look Kinda Brown I was thinking well, maybe it's ochre you know is thinking about that but it's like well, looks Kinda creepy of that's what it is but then I got got out of the cave into the sunlight and it was just like this spectacular bright bright red. So then I knew. What they were after ochre it's among the earliest known pigments employed by humans and it's got many uses for sunscreen to preserve animal skins and burials and ceremonies, and people still use it even today in artwork. It was you know it's a prominent in used Gio material if you will through time for your end and dates data usage for thousands of years prior to around the world.
Getting Ready for the 2020 Emmys
"The Television Academy has just unveiled the nominees for this year's edition of the Emmy Woods Nichols Fernando Augusta per checker and colossal rebelo went through the list and brought us the highlights. Let's have a listen. Pelada. Lovely to have you here. Let's talk about the AMI's but first of all, I mean, you have quite an experience with the amas right while I was very lucky last year while working out of our Los Angeles Bureau to attend the ceremony last for the seventy first. Edition of the Emmy Awards it is amazing. It really is a celebration of all things television not only of course, you're able to see the ceremony yourself and how it all unfolds that the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles, you get to sit right next to some of your favorite stars as they celebrate you know a year worth of work you get to watch as some of them lose some of them when at last year was quite. Special because it was of course, the last year that game of thrones was nominated the end of the saga of game of thrones, which was, of course, a really big deal and one thing that I really liked about that was also how they marked the series that were coming to an end last year by bringing all the cast in the production team that was attending the ceremony on stage and kind of acknowledging any TV show that's on. Air for. A few years it is a bit sad one. You know the last time modern family was also the last. So it yeah, it is. It is quite an experience. I mean we are still a few months to go until this year's edition. Hopefully, we'll be able to have it in person by then by September the television academy still hasn't exactly unveiled the plans for that. But yeah, it just feels as much as it is A. Celebration of television it feels very different to watch it in person than on. TV. Sets and if he's going to be a special year because I mean we've been watching lots of television during lockdown effing and one of the things don't you grieve me. Colada that I like about the Emmys they are. You know what they are actually fairly diverse compared to the film awards and that just shows TV can be actually quite progressive away. Absolutely I think. The nominations this year as well. Reflects that diversity is well and yeah it does show how TV has been able to catch up with only momentum that has been happening in Hollywood about asking for change when it comes to diversity. But even if you look at the shows that are nominated or even just a shows that we're watching now they are reflection of different stories that are a reflection of different themes it's not as standard I would. Say, for example, with the Oscars and I think that's what makes it quite an interesting and exciting. Well, let's talk about some of the favorites I did like sheets Greek being nominated for comedy series of things surprise it started as a very little Canadian series but then apparently people saying that my win actually because the critics love it oh, it is a fantastic show I definitely has been one of the ones I've been watching this year and I was very happy to see it getting nominated for the outstanding Comedy Series Award another one on that category that it was really happy to see their it's the kaminsky methods. This is a Netflix show and yes, it is very lovely with Michael. Douglas starring in it and it is very funny as well and it was so nice to see you know it. They're in the category as well and I just I was very happy I. Think. As we were saying the nominations this year do justice to the TV. We've been watching I mean drama succession I know we're both big fans and you know Brian Cox and Jeremy Strong both be nominated for best actor in a drama series very well deserved extremely well deserved and it is, of course, we're talking here about a big categories. As if you go down the list, there are more awards being given to all the shows we've been mentioning. Not Awards, nominations I mean. But yes, I was very, very happy to see succession I think personally, it has been one of my favorite shows over the last few years I can't remember being dad excited about a show in succession was already nominated for Fiore's last year. I. Know that Nicholas Brutal do who composed the sound score for at won an emmy last year. For. For the score, he composed for succession that would be nice to see it how it's catching momentum and that fans quite disappointed that due to coronavirus sat filming restrictions. The third series did not come out this year as planned but this is a recognition of TV done very very well, there's been other recognitions for example, the morning show had quite a few nominations. And again, it was a show that it was not like loved the beginning by tics but I think people kind of were said, you know what actually was a good series especially the last episode of series. So another one I'm very happy also have very significant for apple as well as the morning show was you know the show that apple try to use as? To make its mark as someone that could compete with the network giants and streaming giants as well. So not only is a very good sign for the a seeing Jennifer Aniston Steve Carell nominated but also to see apple when they've been investing into the right series hiring great actors, great writers, Great Producers, and that it actually pays off and Collado. So what if Jimmy Kimmel? This time I mean, as you rightly said, we don't know how ceremony is going to be, but you know what bt awards they did try and they did like a special ceremony. Names might have to do that because it's happening on the twentieth September. That's very the as the television academy has said that the creative emmys, which you know the creative emmy is usually happen a few days before the Primetime Emmys and they've already said that those are happening on an online platform a few days before didn't haven't clarified yet for the AMI's themselves. We still don't know exactly what are the plans now? What is interesting about Jimmy, Kimmel here hosting I think it's his third time hosting is that he is nominated as well. His show Jimmy came alive is on the outstanding variety talk series, and there's always very endearing one. You know one of the host sometimes even people introducing the award end up being nominated. So yeah, I'd be curious to see exactly how that's going to pay out I don't know. was there any surprise nomination here on this list for you? Fernando as F- in the morning show was A bit of a surprise for me and also in the drama category I mean, we saw men hurriedly having quite a lot of nominations itself Jeremy Pope for his role in Hollywood for a best actor on limited series or movie because Lotte I think competition program should go again to Rupo's drag race. Oh Yeah. His love rapport figured they will he would win again just shows how you know when Ru Paul's drag race started. It was a very Niche not known at the public, and now they've been doing this for over a decade now, and there's just shows how you know there is an appetite for a show like that that it is mainstream, there's no way you can't say that anymore and is so empowering it is, of course, one of my personal favorites as well. It was really nice last year to be there when they won and to see Europol come on stage with a lot of the. Of the show as well and some of the judges when we look at that category I'm partial to and I would love to see them winning again on that category.
What are the best hemp oil benefits?
"Dr CASS Ingram, the head boil. Miracle is one of his books The power of raw Whole food, hemp. Oh, you're better health, Dr CASS Ingram. If you wouldn't mind. You haven't done this in a while and we love when you do this, If you could go back to ancient times and how this plant has been used routinely because you write about it in this magnificent little book, the hemp oil Miracle. And you and you write about the history of hamper. I mean, we've We have many of us had no clue that this was used. For for eons of thousands and thousands of years. Well, you have this Neolithic carvings or painting for about 10,000 BC, where that shows that they were farming hemp and using it as a drug. And the ancient Chinese were using the seed and the plant medicinal, of course. You had the Turks about 10,000 BC. The Mongols Who were raising the seed and using that as a gruel for sick people to get them to recover. It had so much nutrition You have your synth Ian's about 1800 BC five RBC who used to take the more him the more cannabis type him the more more marijuana type, and they would They would. They would throw it on hot rock to then go into a wild frenzy dance as they inhaled the fumes. So, obviously that That was powerful in the time before we hyper dies that manipulated his kind of messed up. And you have, of course, the Islamic on the Greeks who made a anaesthetic from opium or running from him would be almost like the hashish type. And that anesthetic they used for surgery. They weren't getting high on it or something they used. It is a drug to sedate people. They couldn't feel the knife. Feel the surgical I mean, then you had the Indian people who used it as a therapeutic aid, But they would also kind of get a little bit hallucinatory. They would overused it on purpose. They would put it in men's milk. They called it With other spices. But mainly, they used it. Medicinal e ru vedek use such that the British positions. You know, they conquered India right? They found the Indians using that they began doing clinical studies. On him back in about 18 40 that cannabis indica in every doctor's bag back about 18 82 1930 till it got banned. They even banned the drug, right so What kind of hand did not? Yes. So what is hemp Oil? Make the distinction for us, Please. You have hemp oil either from marijuana, or you have it from him Industrial hemp, and what That is, is the resident. The resins and the cannabinoids. Turpin's All the different aromatic compounds you're taking. The oil fraction out of the plant. Now that could could be done by so cannon and alcohol. You could soak it in. Although there's a fatty Fatty layer or fatty component's and it's not the seed. Forget the seat. You compress the seed and make an oil. That's different. This is the plan itself with flour. It could be done with hex ain. This is common now. Beauty and gas, propane gas. And other petro chemicals. You used those to extract out the oil phase or go to which is carbon dioxide, which is harmless, But it's the best one do. That's kind of how it's done.
Striving For Justice with Quoc To
"Can you elaborate on this dream job thing I like. How and when did you dream of becoming a public defender? Like what does the story behind? I I mean. First of all I. It wasn't my dream job so much when we worked together prevention student comedy night. I I knew I wanted to do something social justice related At Ti we? We worked on one of the things that work. There was violence prevention, and that actually got me started on like looking at took one of the classes that. Are exactly record started their violence prevention as a public health issue, and so I just. Looking at looking at that and thinking I wanted to do something within the community I grew up in a poor underserved community community caller. You know a refugee we. We came over America on a refugee resettlement You know plan and I grew up in A. Poor, community stalled pitfalls of crime and I mean pitfalls, poverty and homelessness in lack of social services, and what does the? How that intertwined with you know criminal justice. Actually I haven't really shared this a with a lot of people, but in college. I don't know if you remember, but about. About like a a couple of weeks before the end of my second year I think that was your senior year. one of my fraternity mates got killed outside of our house I think it's like it was huge news at Berkeley right like profits class in nuclear engineering. Really I don't remember I apologize. There's there's a lot from my past. That's a blurb, but yeah. Yeah, yeah, so he was. He was stabbed outside Sigma Pi. And I was I was like there. I had seen him like minutes before that. So the trial unravelled a over the next couple of years and. It slowly some. If some of my about this podcast is GONNA be like! Wow, we didn't even know this, but you know when I was sitting in the through a case and going through that case I felt this. Kid You know when I learned more about it turns out like he was. Small was unemployed. She works for nonprofit. Is that I? Think was like construction work, but you either way. They came from a working class. Family went to public schools he went to. Berkeley High School nearby. And I sitting in that courtroom I kind of felt more. I felt like I empathize with him. You know 'cause he he. He reminded me of you know the people kids grew up with You Know An. Myself came through the environment and I know that I'm very fortunate to be where I'm at You know I you make your own luck, but a lot of it is you catch outbreaks along the way and I kind of was keenly aware of how close I was from not being at Berkeley, not being where I was. You know and so. I I couldn't help feel empathy for him, and so it kind of made me like. You know I wanted justice for my. My friend, who was killed tragically, but I I also felt like his kids GonNa. he kills one drunken site. Right and so I was like it gets convicted. He goes to prison. Justice just felt elusive, really lucid to me and I think that was experience was very transformative for me especially with my background everything that was going on knowing. Justice and so. You know I got to law school and I actually was recruited to help. Run A campaign for my one of my mentors. Ru Training is a form of public County new has private practice now. was running for DA and so if. I. Don't know people pay attention, but the recent election Cisco They elected a yes boden from the San Francisco, public office, but he wasn't I poetry a run for DA And so he ran. He ran for da I manage his campaign. Obviously lost George, GASCON Wanda year and but just being with him. Just he was like you know. I was working at A. A firm that summer I was out wasn't happy on civil, a civil work and I just wasn't happy. And like you got for public office and so I did. And I the next semester. A you know got got internship at Contra Costa Public Office and I fell over the work it just was. It was like this is what I WANNA do this. Would you know what to do and? Yet at the rest is history. That's. I mean. I'm very I've just having a moment just reflecting on How are passing cross? You know in in these ways enlightening, bring Larry and stuff, and like all the craziness of life in Prevention Institute essentially couple years older than you by essentially babies like really working on a on a very big trajectory that we had no idea what was about to happen, but it's I feel really I don't mean it patronizing me just so proud of you. That's audible and. It's not a small undertaking I mean like. Any any endeavor, especially dream because there's a lot of layers to that because I think be these big visions that we can have, I can feel very like. Larger than life, but like you actually went out and did it so i. just really proud of you. That's amazing
"ru" Discussed on Reality TV RHAP-ups: Reality TV Podcasts
"Like in your face like it was very like. Oh I'm so excited to be here everything about all of you guys. I'm so supportive of all of this. I cannot wait to get dressed up. It's going to be so fine. If we ever need superfan impression we know who to go to perfectly capsule but I love it. Yeah no Franky Granada for sure. Perfect the perfect sleeper fan. Yeah I thought it was. I think the other sort of main story that we get here is with us. Heidi's of superfan Nicole and sort of talking about her insecurities and I was really great especially with the work through where ru says you know. You're not born to blend and you're born to stand out and this concept of drag bringing joy I thought was just really cool like a mon- you said this the beginning of the episode but this episode was kind of a warm heart fell episode all the way around episodes packed with a lot of emotion and I was. I was kind of shocks that we did get to see as much content from the super fans as we did because sometimes when we have makeover episodes they don't really focus too much on The people that are getting made over They focused they just tend to focus more about the queen's and what their perspective is but we damn near got pretty much confessionals from these super fans and that it was just gave a lot more context To the competition and to just like totally took you out of the competition a bit like because Heidi sort of had to have two jobs in this episode. She not only had to be drag race contestant but she also had to be a bit of a therapist when it comes into coal and like sort of like trying to meet in the middle with her and I don't know if I'm jumping the gun a little bit when I when I mentioned this. Heidi does actually share the make the make overlook intended on bringing to the competition So I guess that they told them all that they were doing makeovers like any other competition and she had everything set up but of course because Nicole was a little bigger I'll put that she brought was not going to fit her. So that's why I mike when I said that this episode has a happy ending a sort of like I kind of sympathize situation because she brought stuff but she couldn't use it because of the way that production ended up. You know handling the show so I was happy that she was able to get one more chance at the very end so okay. Yeah I didn't know that I mean I kind of made the assumption that that was the case but we can talk about with some of the judging comments too. I just thought that was really well handled kind of the way that they did the whole thing. So all right. Is there anything else you WanNa talk about before we just jump into the runway jumping? Let's jump okay. Daisy Ridley was our guest judge who is a huge fan Which I didn't know I thought that was cool and I thought she did a pretty good job as our guest stretch this. I love daisy literally. Every time she came on the screen. Daisy daisy really fan. I'm so I'm a big star. Wars Fan I think Brent is too so it was great to see this like Sort of crossing over of worlds and I think that she also was a little similar to me Nicki Minaj and that she was a little bit more cerebral than I thought that she was going to be. She seems to really really watched these queens and really offer up some thoughtful and insightful critiques. I was happy that disability was asked to be a part of this episode. Yes there's no one who is more of a fan of busy Ridley than me. Only because I remember the excitement that I felt after watching star wars episode seven in what I thought could have happened to her character. Obviously I hated episodes. Eight and mostly nine nine was okay but I didn't love what they did with her character in particular. I don't love where they took care of drove her all. So I in some ways. I have like some Unrequited FEELINGS FOR DAISY. Ridley of what? I could have been so watching her on this episode of Drag Race and getting to know her a little bit more even when she was not necessarily in line with the panel. I thought it was a lot of fun Yeah yeah I thought it was good and I thought that her I mean just general. Being excited fat built the fit with the whole team episode because authentic exactly yes. It didn't feel put on definitely felt. Okay Brent tell me all about Heidi Aphrodite. Eighty and honey almighty first of all if there's going to be a name that sticks other than Heidi in closet. This is the one I love this name. I like boy. This works. Heidi effort eighty. And I'm the huge fan of Mira Sorvino. She wanted to Oscar for Mighty Aphrodite. If you don't know the reference and I love the fact that their spelling it A. F. R. O. Because obviously the original mighty Aphrodite e which refers to the I don't know Vista Roman Goddess. Or The I forget great. Thank you okay goddess of love and. I've never got a straight by the way but yes I love this name and I loved this pairing but my goodness when they walked out on the runway. I was like where is the family resemblance and they were giving her so much. Praise in the beginning during the judging. I thought for sure they weren't going to say anything. I thought that it was just going to be like we love you. You're amazing how he you're great and Nicole you're fabulous you're working at girl we love you. And then that's it but they. They gave her all of that and then they said now. Let's talk about the family resemblance and then I was like thank you because they're saying well they're saying what we are all are thinking at which is this doesn't look remotely from the same house of drag. I mean what is this like? I thought that she should have been in the bottom for the design of the outfits alone and obviously it makes more sense. Amman after you said what you said because you know you know for instance Cherry Pie doesn't just happen to have to tearoom Assu or whatever the hell outfits in her bag on accident like she knew they were going to do a makeover challenge so she brought those kind of things with her but something like this where Heidi has to use of outfits or materials that are not from some stuff that she previously bought are brought with her is is a part of the reason why we get some uneven results at the end of this challenge with regard to these two. But I'm really glad that the judges called it out because it did not look like there was any resemblance whatsoever not even makeup wise. Yeah the fan was interesting to see. How highly was gonNA affair with this family resemblance? Because she's had I struggle with her makeup. Its entire time that it's by her. She doesn't even know what she looks like she's creating. She's like recreating and experimenting with her own makeup throughout the entire competition. By the time you have to get to somebody else to do the same thing. It's like it's going to be you're still in experimental stages of is going to be a little bit different So it definitely came across and I so I while I sympathize with the look. Sort of like. She her having to rearrange things. Because it's not what she intended. What she did show on. Twitter wasn't what she wore either so I don't understand the choice that she made in like dousing herself in sequins and then giving Nicole pretty much adorable to wear is either. Both of you are going to be wearing sequence or both of you are going to be wearing dailies like if you're not going to be together in the face you at least need to be together in the clothes. And she looks pretty like The the worst part about this to me was that Heidi looked like the pretty sister because of the because of the secret mcgown and then like like that. Nicole wasn't getting the same amount of treatment. I wish they'd been a little bit more honest on the runway about it. Like why do you have your partner now looking as good as you Heidi? That's what I wanted them to say. Right yeah yeah I think it was challenging because her partner honey or was hurt. Nicole was dealing with those insecurities and it's so hard because the as okay like I'm just putting myself in the judges see I wanna Critique Heidi so how do I make it come across as I'm critiquing. Heidi and not honey. And it's a really sort of fine line to walk and I think that's part of the reason why you know. The critiques went away. They went for Heidi and honey because of that whole situation but I completely agree when they walked out I was like what am I looking like? Okay the hair looks sort of similar makeup. I thought actually looked sort short of similar at least in a passable way but to me the outfits were very very very very very different And so like you said on Mon. If she is going to have to scramble and find something else then it seems like an odd choice to be so incredibly distinct unless that was maybe like the only thing that she could do. You could tell them on that. Rupaul was annoyed by calling out. Heidi about like. Where did the time go like? What did you do that was roof roof being funny about it but Ruas pissed? Yeah Yeah and I was. I was talking about this with a roommate as we're watching too because if you tell them ahead of time that there's going to be a makeover challenge right and you allow them to bring Similar looks for that week. How much time are you actually giving them I? I'm not saying that there was no time. I was like a piece of me. Wondered if Rupaul was giving Heidi a harder time than it was appropriate to because if you're allowing them to bring stuff ahead of time which is exactly what all the rest of them dead than did they really. How much time did any of them spending anything besides talking? I think that's a valid critique. I think though the problem was is that Heidi's answer was I got to know her and we talked about disco. Andrew was like yeah. I know I learned that in the walk through the if Heidi's response had been Well we had to come up with the concept. I couldn't use the outfits that I had brought Blah Blah Blah. I don't know if there had been maybe more. I don't know like realistic answer. But also at the same time you have honey who really has some insecurity and you don't want to say on the runway like hey I couldn't use the outfit because like she's a different size like to point out on the runway might be really hard and if Heidi is trying to have empathy for honey. It's hard to to do that so.
How Queer Eye Star Karamo Brown Deals With Thirsty DMs
"Welcome to just SIP. I am Justin Sylvester and today we have one of the FINEST BLACK MEN ON TV. Joining us for this podcast. This conversation was it was jeep. I found out a lot about myself. I found out a lot about the queer eye. Cast I mean there were some nuggets in this interview and I'm just so happy to have one of the most enlightenment join me today. On this podcast. Please welcome Kerama Brown. Thank you for coming. I'm so glad to be here. We are at just a SIP with the one Kerama Brown. Everybody thank you. I'm calling this episode sex drugs and Maury Povich book. If you guys have not gotten this book right now get it and do yourself a favor. Do not. Just get the book the Audio Book because you can hear it in his own words. I am audio book person. I listen to them all the time. Never have I heard so much heart so much love so much pain behind one person telling a story. I appreciate that Boo at all. So all we can you texting me saying. Oh my gosh that part this part and that made me so happy you have no idea because I put a lot of people when they write memoirs they say they're going to be open transparent about everything but then they don't and I was open and transparent about every single thing for sure I was like I'm not hiding anything I don't want you were giving me. Yama for two hours on the treadmill because we're so open and transparent. Who was the one person you were scared to read this manuscript because you? Kinda just laid out there. Yeah nobody to be honest with you because before I started read everyone knows that I live my life. One hundred percent on one hundred percent open. Because that's the only way I feel like other people can grow if I'm an example of the growth and so I let everyone know completely before I was writing this book. I'm writing it and I would like to include your you being a part of my life in this and if you're okay with it let me know right now. If you're not then I'm going to have to figure out a way to still sell your story switching. Yeah and every single person was like we already figured you'd be honest about it so I wasn't worried about anyone to be honest about it and good and there was one subject in there that you decided that you needed to pull back on so I didn't talk about my mother being abused in detail because my father used to hit her because she still healing and so as I was writing. I was noticing that it was bringing up a lot of emotion that she hadn't healed from yet so I was like you know what I'm not trying to trigger my mother. I love my mother's roll back and help her with the you know the tool so that she could support herself and then when my suicide attempt I figured I don't need to go into detail about that because if someone else's reading it I don't them to say Oh this is how I can do it. Yeah I wanted to instead. Stop at a certain point. And then say if you're having these feelings or if you know some of these feelings here our resources you can use. Yeah because a lot of times people don't do that. Yeah and I'm like if you pick up this book here's a way you can get the hell yeah. Was there something that happened while you were writing where you thought you were over something and you had worked through something but then writing this book you almost had to reactivate it and re re confronted you talk about a lot of things in the book about your name and being gay all these things? Sometimes we don't take on you know we don't take it on fully. Yes we kind of brush over it. Yes they we're fine but we're not anything in this book where you were writing so yes but not really because I do the work myself. I mean like career wise. That's I think I'm so good on. Queer is because having a background in psychotherapy social work. I can do the digging and digging on myself. The one thing I would say that kind of triggered me a little bit was when I got to the color. Ism Chapter in 'cause I talked about how my skin tone my grandmother used to say to me. Don't talk it up a family anymore. Which you know. She comes from a certain time. Where you to be lighter meant that you could have attained more success and so when I was writing that it brought up these feelings again because through Social Media. I get these comments because I'm engaged to a white man. Yeah that somehow me being engaged to a white man has somehow diminished my experience as a black man in this world and it bothers me like people say. Oh You Dana White Guy so you all of a sudden have lost part of your blackness and I'm like when I walk out the world people don't see me with a White Man. They see a black man and when the police stopped me they don't say oh you're dating a white guy we'll let you we'll let you go. You're good yeah. Don't have Kiki somewhere and a drink. No they say you still black band. And that's what gets on my nerves and so when I was writing that I realized that there are still issues with my color that it's a different former Colorado but there's parts of it that still bother me because it didn't erase yeah raise yes completely you know. It's funny because when I first came out. I think people had a problem being gate but now that I've come out and in the past dated a white guy when I go home with a guy they now look at me because I'm an interracial relationship you're from Houston Texas. That probably still happens to you. Oh my gosh are you kidding me everywhere? I go like the minute we pop up. This was really gets me people. Somehow he put me on like back up back you up. My man is successful but my had no hand in giving me the career the success the money in my bank account and it bothers me when we go out and people assume my career is somehow because of something. He's that yeah I'm like have lost. Meanwhile he's like a doctor somewhere else talked about this. You know what I'm saying. DoN'T COME FROM MR. Calhoun exactly well. Let's remind people where you started? Yes because rule. Philadelphia was everything. Yeah you were the first black openly gay man on television. What was that experience reality? Reality mother ru father who was the first. Let's let's be very real but in reality television and when that title came out I didn't even know that also people's right in there and I was like what are you talking. About Ruben around forever and then I was like oh reality television got it and what was it like It's it's it's sad and it's also exciting because I was on the real world in two thousand and four two thousand five. Why in the hell has there never been an openly? Gay Black Man cast before me. Yeah that's a problem for sure because we have been around. Let me take some I go to Atlanta. I go to Chicago New York. Texas Tennessee and black gay men are around thriving doing the most amazing setting culture setting trends yet. I was the first so it kind of disappointed me because I was like there should have been twenty before me before me but then on the same rate I was like well. I'm glad that I could kick open the door so that now there could be more people and then I'm going to continue. Kick Open that door and also gonNA continue that every other brother. That is Gay I'm going to say come up with me. Let's let's do together. I let me applaud. You let me celebrate you. Let's let's do this. We don't do that very often was many. Don't but many do you do I do. And I think it's important that we encourage those who on their journey to loving themselves and to love others to know that we support them in that they'll get there. Yeah no in. Two Thousand and four people weren't living that loud. We were still kind of in the closet. You Know Oprah said. We was in the closet. Let me tell you I was out in the club. Run IN THE STREET. Oh do it in. Oversized Shala John Jeans and Timberlands and then each outfit sounds happy. I need you ought to put together like a collage when you go on TV and you live your life like that and then the reality stops and you're back in your real reality. Yes what was the? What was I guess? What was the backlash because you know with my family? It's like you can be gay. You can be you. We support you but the minute you put it out there. It's a little bit harder. Yes that and that's exactly it. I had family members who immediately were turned off from speaking to me my father and I we already had a rocky relationship because he couldn't reconcile our relationship with his religion and so because he he believed his God was teaching him that somehow I was not perfectly designed and not made in his eyes. He figured I can't talk to you but then on top of that me putting it on television embarrassed him and so he didn't WanNa talk to me. We got into physical altercations. It was bad and there was other family members. Come from Jamaica in house so it's like the Black Culture Jamaican Culture Cuban culture which unfortunately there are members subscribed to this sort of ideal of what it is to be a man. Yeah and then me being proud and well-spoken on national television somehow didn't define me as a man because of the fact that I had intimate relationships with other men and your only son and I'm the only son and so you know it was. It was hard but then on the flip side which I tried to do was focus on all the people who love me like I will just showered with so much love beginning letters and letters and letters from people saying Oh my Gosh I love you. You're amazing mice messages. Dmz ENDS. It was good. It was good but I'm not GONNA lie it. I took a dark path quickly because I felt like I lost myself because trying to battle the family and the good of here trying to be something more at Age. Twenty three was a lot. Yeah and so it got it got rough real quick she black Jamaican and Cuban. Sx is good. You better you show up with a PPO per somebody. Did it. Better be an ambulance late nights. I just can't even imagine it would add. Top passed already clear the room you were living your best life. Look my favorite line. In this whole book I found. It is when you said molly you in danger girl. Okay when your I'm not having an explainer people I'm GonNa let you explain it to them because it was one of the most profound things that I've read. What was that moment like for you when I found my drug of choice. Yes Oh my gosh. Tell me you history. Yes so I mean my father being rastafarian Jamaican Us We'd he recreationally and so it was always in my house shot. Okay I loved it. I loved trying. We'd because it made me feel social when I got it first time from him so it was a weird experience of like not having to go to a corner to get we'd just being able to say. Let Me Walk. My Dad's room and get weed and but then I realized I didn't like the feeling of it. I didn't like being lethargic. I didn't like it was down. It was a downer. I didn't like it so then I started trying to know you weren't going in your dad's closet to get some weed. He had a basketball side. Oh yeah he well he did okay he did he did. He had won by his bed but he also had like a basketball in the freezer. This yeah like big of weed in the freezer and so I'll just opened up the bag and I'd be like with my friends be like oh how much we need today and I would just take it out the bag and so it was easy for me to access it but I didn't like the Downer feeling of it and then I stopped that because I never had addictive personality towards that but though I had an addictive personality So then I started molly and ecstasy and that was cute for like the first couple of times I was like yes. I like someone rub up on me and I was like yes. We are living. Ooh And then as I would have to take three pills to have that same feeling. I was a you're sweaty. You're growth cute and then I got introduced to cocaine and that's what I said you in danger girl. And how old were you when you got introduced twenty five? And who was the bitch because at this point? Let's remind people if you read this book. He is now on the. You're in the press tour. You're in the Club appearances. Best Life as Kerama. Oh for real world yes and you start out on this dirty your sixty three you in between one hundred ninety three and two hundred and ten pounds and you get introduced to cocaine yes. What's at first feeling like
Billy Boyd Reflects on the Lord of the Rings
"Is billy boyd. Talking about using real shorts and the locations for the Lord of the Rings Trilogy I think speaks only guys that whenever we could use the real saw. When it wasn't a safety thing then we would always use the heavy ru solved because like Emerson in the movie why real and no one ever swapped it for like aluminium ones. That was fought a safety thing that we had to what it was incredible and then when we got the Elven dagoes is getting a gift. You know onset. Someone says okay. This is the plus the elven daggers. And you know you get this amazing Any talk about her. You're going to win. You know so you ha- that can a fun thing that all out? Thank I'll wear on the opposite but lower than the slogan of uptight like Besson. It's just it was great locations for a definite. Thanks but the one what I thought. This is almost unreal was them Rubio will McKnight and Maria that lose weight rooks. That's really there and I have no idea but we had to wait for three days because of weather and the helicopters couldn't he couldn't land so we spent three days just hanging around a room like this because we're right in the middle of nowhere. It wasn't as applicant hang around in a nice hotel or send him Iran's once we actually made up that it was just incredible and went to their estate up there. The Whole Day is too much hassle because weather and stuff to get the helicopter Sunday night so there was a very smoke crew in cash we would just set out having lunch in this amazing location and that that's a great memory for
"ru" Discussed on RuPaul: What's The Tee with Michelle Visage
"We're back Oh hi oh I thought we were back. No Oh no no I was just talking. He was talking to me. Yeah Oh new but we are back on the air now. Okay so I'm GonNa go backwards because if I went at the top of the list that would take us back too far. Yeah so I want talk about. Aj McQueen specific first of all. It's amazing it's so much fun. Each one is its own little just camp delicious. Yeah and M. L. is so oh good and he is so good an an yes now. I'm just so proud. Ah just finest yes. You don't claim him than Y'all are poop because they don't claim me Mike School but my one moment that's stuck stuck out to me. I think it was episode. You'll tell me it was one or two No must be episode. One when you're in the bar that you're buying so without giving anything away you're in the bar that you're buying And my favorite moment of the whole thing was was. I believe. It's it's the that scene there's lighting in it. That's exactly like Angelica Huston in addams family values you don't know you've seen addams family. Yes so every time. She's in a scene. You know it's kind of gray and there's a light box which I try to you when I did. Strictly and I did the atoms whom I tried to kind of highlight the hell out of my eyes to give a nod to that sure you. You have a scene where it's more tissue lighting dark and it might not be in the bar might be in the apartment or in the back but you're just lit here in the eye and it's like my favorite thing it's funny because you know a director of You know he told me he was going to take care of me because that was one of my concerns aside from revealing so much of myself in the show my other concern. was you know the lighting. Because lighting is everything and looking skin texture texture and all that kind of stuff but he says no no. No I'M GONNA I'm GonNa look after you. I'm GonNa make sure that we emphasize I want. I want to see your freckles. And we're we're going to light this thing in a way that you're going to be very happy. Oh it was amazing. I was like my giddy little heart just for that little nod and I wonder if he realized that's the whole thing is great in in and of itself. I can't wait to stream it because I saw I saw each one individually like about three weeks or three like three weeks apart so I I know what happens but I don't really remember bird them a lot of them little pieces of round so people listening or going. What are you talking about? You shot it you have to understand it you shoot everything out of sequence and then when they put it together. You don't know what it's going to look like Bruce saying that's kind of a normal thing. We shot it and then we went into editing and when we finished I would go in like a Oh once every three weeks to see a finished product right and then so every three weeks maybe every two weeks. I don't know I would see another one and that that was the last time I saw one was probably three months ago. Maybe oh fund something like that so I I can't wait to stream stream it on my own makes me want to have an RV and it was so fun. Yeah Dude you get a chance to watch the morning show. No I don't have apple TV well. No I don't have apple whatever that is a little plus you actually get a code in the mail for free for a year when you're on the voting committee. Oh okay so use it and watch it. And then I'm I'm gonNA leave this note in there but people that are listening that I've watched it because it's brilliant it's brilliant It's the best work Jennifer Aniston has ever done with. That said we need to talk about lot. Reese Witherspoon swigs in it because they are horrendous. Really took them of ten episodes. Took them eight to figure out what to do with. It are the meant to be horrendous. Knell no no it took them a while like the part was moving till they figured out. Oh it works best here. It's just in this day and age. This always dumbfounded me with all the talented hairdresser is out there. All the gays in the world and some people cannot get their hair to go not going out them here and and this is a character so it's not her so I don't feel bad saying but the whigs were really bad Hard to take your eyes off of bad But when you see it you'll you'll get it well. That does bother me because I'm always looking for wigs. I'm always looking at. What people are doing with their wigs and riots done well again? I'll say it. I've said it before. Nobody Iraq's like Nicole Kidman. That bitch has the latest front game on. She knows she noise. She knows she noises. He's I had a judy. She knows she knows how to do. A lights front like no one else. She Nour's yes she does has and people should ask her. I somebody to ask her. I mean her in Reza friends they did a big little lies. Reese Camille. What's today okay? Oh it's bad really. And maybe she called Nikki Kaye. Yeah eight episodes instead of a is that also you gotta write your way apart. Should be over there. Wait just wait. You know the problem with most of those things that they have too much too much hair in the whig if if you want to emulate real hair real hair doesn't have that much heavy it's too heavy. Yeah and so that's why when years ago in. La when everybody had so many extensions it was like that could not grow out of a human head and so you know a little bit goes a long way and it comes to extensions when it comes comes to wigs. Also people don't have to cut them right but these were bad but they did finally get together also. We were talking about movies that we watch on the plane so I saw quite a few. I saw taunt did you. Did you see joker. No Oh I got the DVD. I'm GonNa Watch I got the DVD. He's GonNa win isn't he. Yeah he'll win. He'll win is he. You beat Adam. Sandler and uncut gems is that a net flicks movie now. It's a new movie in the theater on Jacob I'm enticed is so great. Yeah and Adam Sandler. Yeah this is. It looks like the best performance that he's ever done. Oh you're talking about your sandler you're serious dead. Serious Adam Sandler plays like jewelry to like. I don't know what's going on. And Jacob Jacob Jacob the Jeweler Jacob the jeweler you guys is is the hip hop is the go-to for years past twenty years. I don't I don't know if he's still is the go-to jeweler for raw kwan. Right and and the Font John and them and Rakwana now and tank route tank. Land all the runs. DM's all of those people Yeah Hip hop community. Yeah like you would get them the trauma the ghost town. Dj's my my boo all avail Jacob the jeweler was the one to go to so uncut. Jimmy plays that type of character. That sounds hollow rap stuff and it gives his violent. Oh yeah what kind of WHO's directing this it would be if I guess it would be like a soderbergh production. Oh young it's dark okay. So anyway what brought me to that you were you. You weren't talking about the joker so I saw a movie that I wasn't going to see my daughter Lilly's please like I will disown you as my mother if you don't watch it. 'cause it's her favorite move. Didn't you do that many years ago. Yeah it's not even a threat rocket man. I love that movie so much I shall. I can't even tell you I love that movie so much much. I loved it.

It really doesn't get more beautiful than that. God honestly when I mean I've known yes but when you watch that when you look at it Oh for over an hour. It's and it's long and it's not but if you see him actually in cool hand luke which by the way if you're listening it's a pornographic film. It's a bunch of men in a in a prison and they have the the addams family lighting. Yeah basically yeah yeah. Cool Hannah but that man not only is he a beautiful but super super talented incredible. Yeah that movie was not about Liz. Yeah that was about him it was about him and skippy was skipped father. No the boy friend who was yes. They dance around on the relationship with skip.

"ru" Discussed on RuPaul: What's The Tee with Michelle Visage
"We've got Michelle Sasha's back back in the house she's gone for a long time months for my left girl. Came back elating. Yes you certainly did and did you ever come back and visit your family while you were way. Why would I do know to be honest? I mean there was facetime which is all the time. Yeah my head was really in that game because this wasn't like a big brother other situation where you just go and be. Yeah I had. I danced eight to ten hours a day and GIO did. We did not break for lunch. You know I think we went to Nando is once a work otherwise otherwise it would be like when we did the after show. It was a full on thing because I wanted to be the best in that fricken show. Yes I wanted to be the best that I could be. I wanted to be out there for women of a certain age to show my kids to show whoever you are never too late to learn the shit. I've loved it forever. I've never taken a class and Now like it's changed my life. I bet no I could see it in the way your body took in the information I could see it. How the way you moved you have to love it to be able to move the way you really do? So who ended up winning Kelvin Kelvin. One he was so he was kind of the beefy one. Yes who's fun. And not he was. He was beautiful black girl from South Africa. Ot Mabuza don't we'll have the symmetrical the girl you know. Don't slap me What's her name Bernadette Bernadette she had that hair Brunette what dance you saw she likes skin Nah she dark skinned. Okay No. I don't remember her. See Her sisters adjudge. Oh Yeah okay I know the does Let's see I'll show you a picture of them show me and he had the fat ass yeah. He's like a bodybuilder. Oh He's a bodybuilder. He's not the sort of comical guy you. I know. You're thinking of Chris Ramsey. Oh my God he's white. Yeah Oh that doesn't matter. He was White Kelvin's white I don't you know I'm I'm a show you because I went out to see those two. Yeah Oh yeah yeah. I remember him because he's the good looking one and good dancer. Yeah he won he won and tell me about this voting system. Because okay what happened. I didn't learn about this until later but SAM. Oh Yeah Oh yeah. He's he's got a fat ass. Well yeah he's got a great body I didn't learn until much later that a when I went to visit. You guys yes. There is the the judging that happens then and then later that night you do the dance again. Same dance is that right. You do the performance on Saturday night at eight o'clock yes. But then at ten o'clock you do it again if you're in the dance off only if you're in in the bottom two. Oh okay. It's almost like you know. Sing off like you gotta fight to live. Sing for your life correct. Exactly what should the bottom two. So how do they find. I know who the bottom two are. So it's a public vote it goes to the public and there's the judges have no say they have no power in only in saving us in the Dow is like you would save somebody in the lip sync for your life. The judges save the person they think. Did the better dance off. Okay that's how that works. Show show the public votes on who they like the most and the people who got the least votes GonNa buy it off and then we watch them dance. That's it off. And then those judges on the stage say you know what we're going to save XYZ. I see yes I see and say on this dance alone. not the other dances. I did in the competition on this dance alone. We're going to save Blah Blah Blah. Yeah yeah all right so. Let's talk about Vogue Gate. The Gate Vogue Vogue Holgate what happened. I thought it was fantastic because it was and I thought that I saw some of the tweets where Eric you had to defend vogue ing as a form of Damn because people were trying to say. It wasn't dancing that I was saying that the public that don't know what voting is so here. Here's here's our thought process. There's probably these are probably the same people who voted for brexit orange. Yeah yeah the thought process was this. We had a dance coming coming up called couples choice and it happened to be a black pool. Getting to Blackpool's a big deal right So we thought couples choices. The categories are at theater jazz. Yes he did. It last year was hit the puck with his partner. I didn't want to do a Fossey number because I knew that Emma and Anton just did that and the other category was street dance so we could have done like a hip hop number. Whatever I said we should vote because a it's never been done be? It's still street dancing See it's for my community and D.. It's doing something on strictly. That's never been done. We want to move mountains. Only WANNA progress. We gotta take big risks and Gio is here for it. He was so oh excited the the we had a choreographer he was so excited everybody was like this. Dance is four tenths. This is going to be the first four tens and I thought we should should do the tribute to we should do them down shirt in one thousand nine hundred video music awards probably the best version ever done and back in that day for kids. Who Don't know we didn't have view to we didn't have phones and computer so when Madonna did that our minds were both our minds? Were blown because we didn't know what we were seeing. Yeah when when she came out dressed like Marie-antoinette we were like what the fuck is happening so everybody was on board and then we did it. And we got four eighths which is still great but the the fact that there was no conversation about how huge this moment was from. The two gay judges kept kept me a little. Like Um yeah this is this is really weird and Gio kind of looked at me and I was like. Oh we're going home tonight like it hit me because in my opinion nobody understood it right and on the judging panel If you think that was just walking you didn't see what we did. Then you weren't getting Detroit. What this was so the point was moot but there there was no way they were gonna even see us in the dance off telling me to do? This sharper is really not what this is right right right. This is about you not understanding what this dance is what it means and what it should be. I had the greatest vogue irs told me that was amazing. I had Caesar told me that was unreal dean. My choreographer was like that was fucking phenomenal. The people that the community heard it loved it. And we're we're blown away by it but that was how we went home so the way I see it is they just didn't get how to judge and did you go home that very night. Nine and go home home but I was. I mean that was. Yeah that was it. That was our swan song. Then we came back to do the finale. Okay so you you found yourself in the bottom two and you had to do it again yet and who did you do it up against saffron and AJ who did quickstep. How are you gonNA put a vogue back up against an in frame dance? The quickstep like I did the Liza Minnelli dance. Yeah that's the quickstep where you're running. It could have been the worst quickstep. Never I'm not saying it was does right and they still would have won against us because there was no way that they would have let vogue overtaken quick. Stop on strictly come down. This sounds like the plot to the movie Strictly ballroom to an. I'd love to star in it. Yes I mean it really does because the later years later the whole the whole point the whole freaking premise of him doing something outside of the box and Guinea punished for it and getting punished for. That's exactly what happened to us as we we got punishment and I didn't feel bad for me because I felt really strongly about what I did. I felt proud of it. I loved it. I felt worse for Gio because he kind of came along on the ride so down for it and so into it and I felt I felt like we could have. We had a chance to get to the final on this show and I feel like Oh God did I fuck that up for us but oh you can't go back. I stand by what I did and listen. I would do it in this country doing any country. I felt really proud of that and ice ice. That thing I said to the judges was we did this because I proved that I can do Latin. I proved casual room. Yeah we wanted to do something to shake it up. Yeah and I'm sure. Nobody will ever vogue again but we made a point and we made a statement. I'm telling you there. And just salsa no. It's it's unfortunate that that wasn't recognized used as it is you know I feel like it was way more small minded than they are because they're not small minded people and they love dance and they love the world of dance I mean Johannes I did it in the big dance number with him in heels in a fan and everybody went insane and then we do it as a dance not a pro dancer but as a competitor competitive number and nobody sees that and it's not that it wasn't as good it's just we competed with it so it was. It was different. The pros did it in a number. I see right right right so how how many weeks were left when you left the competition the four okay for I was so close MHM The next dance. We were going to do with tango and then we would have had the semi final with two dances which would have been waltz in Charleston And then we would have gotten to hopefully relate to find out. Have you spoken with Geo since we text. I haven't seen him because the holidays he went home to Sicily and then went away. But I'll be. I'll see see him when I go back I keep going. Can We dance please. He Literally Says No. Why has he dances all the time? Last he wants to do is give me a lesson right so so I find somebody else. Wow it's an interesting thing. How long is this show? But on the air this season sixteen or seventeen and it is but they do two seasons zero one a year. It's so huge. It is so huge to them. I said why do you not you sixteen season yeah. I'll tell you why this is what I think because it's a public vote and UK watches television very differently. The biggest shows are on in the wintertime. Because everybody's in because it's cold and this show leads up to Christmas time. It's a a big deal. It leads up to Christmas time than they do a Christmas special on Christmas Day. The end if you did an all-star so it had to be over the summer and like I don't know if glowing going going to blackpool would be part of it. It wouldn't give anybody like I feel like this leads up to Christmas. Yeah there's an end point..

"No, I think, you know, everything there is to know about rupaul drag race ruins pissed, and I don't think that they have kind of. Gotten that yet that the reason that all six of them were lip synching. I think banshee alluded to this. But I don't I haven't heard then really articulated that rule was. That them. I think ru was embarrassed in front of the guest judges that it was that bad. Do you agree with my assessment of that? Yeah. I mean, I I. Yeah. No, definitely. And I think ru has demonstrated in past seasons. Also that like ru will do it ruins to do when Russi's fit. So like, I agree with you that like Roger shouldn't have been like, oh my God. Everything I know is thrown out the window about drag race. Also, I'm surprised that your feeling gagged by them not talking about Honey Davenport, and like the MIR thing because you know, that when Roo does something she thinks his gag worthy. We're going to get hit over the head with the fact that had happened for me to call them. Like, don't forget the gang lip sync. Like everybody was they're all doing it like do that again. Like we're going to hear that for the rest of the season. Well, one person who was not living for the way lip sync was sugar cane, she says that when ru was calling all the names, she really thought she was going to go home. And this is the point in time where they all sort of what was happening that Ruas pissed at them. And they all decidedly on a that. They're not going to let any moment on repulsed drag race has they're going to step. They're put these up do. Do you believe then? And was this episode a reflection of the fact that they stepped up with these up. I just feel like Jano dot. I still go back to the fact that I I can't decide if they do recognize how terrible they did. Or if they're like, oh, yeah. I was just that Gog of the moment. Like, of course, better pussies up. I hope they take it to heart. I feel like though, it was a little canned in the moment. But I mean Suga, for example, look really shook like you could tell how emotional she was. And so for her I think she looked showed. I can't tell what shakes scarlet she's still. There's something about her. I don't quite him. Right. He's. There was it's not easy to do on a podcast because it's like, where's Where's my my buddy? button ready to recognize that it's shade? First of all all that. So shady, then you've got to find the button. Thank god. I'm not coordinated much like much like scarlet on not coordinated enough for this. Well, well, she was also furious that they weren't going to throw other people under the bus that I think all embarrassing and part of it. And I think sugar could have been safe based on the critique on her look had she been willing to trash her friends or not even trash runs just saying, I think that so and so was was less successful in this area. And maybe we could have done better. Because of that, you know, you don't have to push down for. But now, they they may have framed it that way in untucked and been like girl, you push me under the bus, but still but still feel like that that would have been better than insane. What they did. Okay. So the next day, we don't even get any sort of video message from rupaul ain't got time for this. They got things to do REU comes in and says that she has some disturbing news a leak has been discovered and that leak is coming from this very studio.

"But explain this masterminding how did you get interested in this, Nick, Nick Bilton did the same thing? He wrote his he's running. But well, he's writing about the dark web, isn't he anyway? Yeah. Go ahead someone somewhere. So so yeah. So I wrote this as originally as a series of articles. I read the book was originally a series of articles for the magazine. So and the reason that we did them the way we did them was it was a big story that I'd stumbled across about this head of this cartel cartel. So he was a computer programmer named Paula ru Paul Calder larou- born in Zimbabwe, but also raised in South Africa. So people call them, South African sometimes, and he was actually a very very talented technologist. He created a piece of software called encryption for the masses in the late nineties early two thousands, which was the precursor to true crypt, which is one of the most famous one of the most famous pieces of disconnection software. So he did that but see star from attacking this is a techie that's part of tacky to like. Yeah. He's I mean, one of the things I would say about him as if everything he did had been done in the straight world would be sitting here. We're talking about it. He be on the cover of fast. Billionaire founder of the best encryption Zoff where. Yeah, what he did was he gave away and Christian for the masses for free part of the open source movement. And then he got very frustrated that he never made any money on and give it away. Well, he was trying to participate in spirit of the times are still today of the open source software movement. So what he did? Instead was he started a prescription pill online empire, and it was incredibly clever tap, I mean, well, it's not quite clear where he got the original idea it just popped out of his head or copying of the masses instead of contention for the mess, and yeah opioids nearly opioids. So in the in about two dozen four he basically started building this network, and the idea was they would recruit local doctors in the United States local pharmacists in the United States. And then a customer could go online Google drug like tram at all painkiller, and they would go to a site that was controlled by Paula ru or one of his affiliates than their order there. And their little survey that they filled out would go to a real doctor in the US with signed on to be paid by the press. Option to write prescriptions. Then that prescription would go to a small town pharmacist who was trying to compete against big box retailers. They would get two dollars per prescription for issuing it and in doing so the whole actual distribution of the drugs was contained within the United States. He Paul was operating from the Philippines behind layers and layers of technology, and again, why hundreds of millions of dollars giving sale y operating from the Philippines, originally, I think it was because they have decent infrastructure. They have a call center kind of culture. So he needed customer service, call centers for the sites, but eventually it became more that he could buy off almost anyone in the government or law enforcement. And and did so so. They were going to arrest him for drug trafficking. Many things. Yes, I drug trafficking, but also eventually violence murder, he shifted. He used his proceeds from the prescription pill network to get into all manner of international crime is probably the most prolific criminal possibly in history. He got into arm sales sold arms to Iran. He was buying meth out of North Korea. He was shipping. Hundreds kills of cocaine and yachts across the world across the Pacific Ocean. So he was actually becoming a real kind of like El Chapo style cartel, but he actually made the whole thing himself from scratch. I'm Scott out of his head and a business that is adjacent legal right in a way. It's done the pill business. It was a really tricky thing when they tried to prosecute it because first of all they couldn't get to them..

The Khokar ru out of Ruland for TV. Oh, and they're affiliated agencies, and I got to meet the Queen as poker ru. Colin Powell came to bring a program called America's promise with a little red wagon as their symbol and l. we use when he had his twenty fifth anniversary Saturday night at the movies. I got to be part of that. We never got to hear your voice, which is really odd hearing it now will yes, because polka ru in most of the time until nineteen ninety six. When he came out of Roulin talking was. Sort of way Shen when I was told the talk was given the instruction to be kind of like Julia child and Kermit the frog. It was. And yes, mostly insinuated like the Smurfs did in their day. Now, of course, we didn't imagine smoking a giant spliff. No, and that would be the evolution of the next generation where Toca ru and rainbow REU Cigna, ru who is deaf and signing and ready ru, who is a special needs character. So this is a project that I've evolved the character from in into an internet program for eight to thirty year olds. How do people at four twenty s today? This is well, this big rally and you were there as Tokyo. As a just mentioned, you are smoking a giant novelty spliff and how do people react to you? Will the giants split as it were is probably the symbol that lets people know that it's Toca ru and because it is a parody on poker ru. Often would get people saying poker ruined has to point to that joint and say, no, I, it is Toca ru, but because yesterday was was a historic day. People wanted to take pictures with icon. Ick characters bomb. Man was also there, and I think for the most part, if it wasn't taking picture of somebody's smoking some actual substance that it was the next best thing now did did people know that this is not? Does somebody making fun of Poku aren't polka ru? Well, my children didn't know when I was doing it for TV. Oh, because that was part of the mystique. When I actually wet when they were small during the thirties now, but when they were small, I would take a friend to a mall or or wherever the meet and greet was, and I would disappear and then they would go in beach, polka rue and I would show up later. So was part of the fun of doing that too? Like the show. I mean, so you had your own private show with the kids. Yes, yes. Was there a took crew while you were playing poker ru? No, I don't think so. I think that would have been illegal. Ask you was, or was there a secret Tokyo inside poker struggling to get out? Probably because I actually have an aversion to alcohol and I have a alcoholic history. So I and I suppose I have to admit that I want an altered state of mind sometimes to I use the analogy that we all go to the playground to play and some going swing. Some going, the merry go round going to slide as adults may want an altered state of mind and Toca ruse to talk about having that responsibly because excess make some TV, oh, TV on -tario. Think of Tokyo. Ru. I went to marketing when I was first developing these characters, and they showed less than in Tuesday, Aston interest in it. And I have made sure that might parody of polka ru toe crew rainbow ru. Cigna ruined ready Lou in any of the others that I make after.

B. I. and Mahler and combing all these people would get him even if he's innocent and all he does he has no choice but to fight back and to try to shut this whole thing down because they're going to get him even if he hasn't done anything like I wonder if that's in his head but then I realized no he's probably just guilty like the only way that you would act like this because you Tommy brought this up last night he was like you know is trump's strategy this is all just a political fight that everyone's against them that everyone's biased and what muller finds doesn't matter is that really working that his best strategy and I thought about it doesn't seem like it's his best strategy if he is indeed guilty if he has committed a crime and he thinks he's committed a crime then the best strategy here is to try to fight this investigation try to shut it down and in the court of public opinion try to get people to believe that Moeller Komi the FBI the DOJ that they're all biased against him that they're all liberals or Obama holdovers that it's all fake news and that this is just a plot to take down the president that probably is his best strategy. I that's right it is I mean who knows what is in trump's head because it seems to be like he lives in one of the most angel filter bubbles that any American prisoners states could live in you add that to the fact that he has a long history of believing pretty cool conspiracy theories and then you add the fact that he is incontrovertible narcissist it's hard to define what he's actually thinking there is never strategy there's no whiteboard anywhere in trumpworld with a plan there is just what comes out of his mouth next but his strategy is not not working right like we are every day we get more information that makes it more clear that trump is at least crime adjacent if knives committing crimes and the and the polling doesn't change it's exactly the same it is a fucking straight line from the day after the election today on all these things and the people the American people hold a certain set of us they think that motion finishes investigation they a faith and Bob Muller many of them think that trump it was involved in collusion and trump supporters give shit and trump has a different our approach to presenter communications than any previous president trump is in talking to anyone but thirty eight percent the American people he just wants to convince them the truth and so he if he thought about other people beyond that then you would take a different strategy but that's not he just cares about that group of people and if the end of the day the consequence for whatever actions is the United States Congress which whether Democrats are in charge or not will still contain nearly fifty percent Republicans if the end of the day congress has to act to impose a legal penalty political penalty for trump's actions then trump strategy is working because it is dead fucking side the rest of these people what's starting to really worry me is what happens when we get towards a genuine constitutional crisis and me that's not just though it could include Muller issuing a report that seems like trump has committed impeachable offenses in Congo just as an act because they're all bunch Republican hacks but it could also be like this this whole issue around whether trump sits for an interview with Muller and the way this is framed in the press right now it's like you know should trump say yes to molar should he not will he sit with them won't he sit with them and it's really not up to trump appear like trump is probably going to refuse an interstate with an interview with Muller it seems like that's the strategy right now or Giuliani saying well maybe if he does it'll be an hour or two and will limit the questions and all that Shit and Muller's not GonNa go for that model is going to say I want to do what I WANNA do here if trump refuses that Muller's next move move is to subpoena trump so then he gets a subpoena then trump has to decide do I accept the subpoena and sit with him or not Bill Clinton initially didn't want except the subpoena but then finally said okay now agree and I'm going to sit down and I'm going to do a videotaped testimony for a grand jury so if trump says no bucket. I still don't want to accept the subpoena I'm going to ignore the subpoena then Muller takes it to the courts and it goes all the way to the Supreme Court presumably now what happens it the Surpreme Court rules the trump needs to sit down for an interview with Muller and trump says fuck it I'm not going to buy what the Supreme Court does then we're in a real constitutional crisis that's the one that I'm thinking I'm like thinking down the road here now maybe before that at some point someone gets to trump and tries to get him to cooperate with Muller sit down and they figure out the contours of an interview but it does seem like this could escalate rather quickly and I don't know how that ends I think that is your point is right that that is a Roger Constitutional crisis than the question of whether there are any consequences for the president firing muller and everything comes back to the unprecedented act of constitutional theft when McConnell stole the Supreme Court seat from garland gorsuch because you'll get a five four court with a trump appointee being potential deciding vote on whether the president is subject to a subpoena or not look there is a legitimate I don't understand it but there is a legitimate legal debate about what the founders intended in terms of the ability criminally prosecuted president outside of the content text of impeachment and I understand the fear of all of a sudden we're gonNA start criminally like if you're going to have an apolitical process to essentially reversing election right or no final action and that there is a slippery slope there the problem is with as with so much else in our politics is that it assumes a functioning political process that there are actually checks and balances and there aren't because trump is currently operating under immunity by Congressional majority and there is no crime that will be punished all of this goes back to the thing we say all the time which is if you do not want trump to be president if you want him to do you want there to be consequences political otherwise for his offense is legal political policy wise on the country over the last fifty eighteen months or so then Bob Muller is not going to solve the problem the Supreme Court Arkansas the prime sure as Hell Paul Ryan Mitch McConnell GonNa solve the problem the only thing to do his Vote Democrats into office that is the only thing to do is the only way that there will be any sort of true congressional oversight Youtube noted in the New Yorker is that trump could eventually decide to sit down for an interview with Muller and plead the fifth now certainly in the Court of public opinion outside the thirty five percent of the country that would you know be with trump even if he shot someone.

"The World Interview with Pulitzer Prize winning writer Ronan Farrow who has a new book out the war on peace the end if diplomacy and the decline of American influence running and Tommy had a great event right here in L. A. on Sunday and you can also hear the full interview on Tommy's save the world episode this week so check it out you can also listen to keep it Kara and Louis IRA had a great episode this week where the talk about this entire Kanye West situation as well as the Michelle Wolf kerfuffle which I think both things happened three or four years ago right rock Obama was president yes but today Dan we begin with quite an update on the United States versus the trump family crime syndicate Last night last night America's mayor who turned into a raving loony take Rudy Giuliani decided to sit for an interview with Sean Hannity as President Trump's new outside counsel and boy did he knock it out of the park why don't we play up a clip from the interview with Sean I think rich has one for us that money was not campaign money sorry I'm giving you a fact now that you don't know it's campaign money no campaign finance violation so they funneled through law firm funnel through over and the president repeated oh I didn't know campaign zero so the president every Sean so this decision was made by everybody everybody was nervous about this from the very beginning I wasn't I knew how much money Donald Trump put into that campaign one hundred thirty thousand a couple of checks for a hundred and thirty dollars Rudy Rudy so so Rudy Giuliani admitted on national television that the President personally repaid Michael Cohen for the hundred and thirty thousand dollars he paid to keep stormy Daniels quiet about alleged affair for those who haven't been paying attention the president previously told reporters he knew nothing about the payment Dan what was he thinking here he wasn't thinking I mean it is so I was watching the basketball game that I went to dinner so I was not like my usual practice washing Hannity live as sort of following the tweets and so as I saw what he said I assumed he was answering a question about this very topic question as simple as did the president. Now that's not what happened it was a question on an entirely different subject which then calls Rudy Giuliani to just take a sharp right turn and admit a bunch of crimes until the American people that the president his press secretary sorry his attorneys have all been lying for months and I mean it's truly my boggling like we made jokes about how absurd it was that trump hiring rudy Giuliani to be part of his legal team but the reality is so much more absurd than the jokes I mean it's real we mind-boggling I mean thank you do interviews Rusia Latte if you're listening we let you live stream from cookie media headquarters for six straight hours if you want to just talk just keep up don't stop talking keep doing what you're doing someone pointed out a couple of people pointed out that the last time that Ridge Alani tried to explain a complicated legal matter on behalf of the president it was when he said Donald Trump called him up and said hey we gotta do this Muslim ban but how do we do it in a way so it doesn't seem like Muslim basically and Rudy's comments were then used by lawyers in court to argue that trump's Muslim ban was religiously discriminatory and so he did such a good job with that he was brought back and then just stepped on many rakes starting last night on Sean Hannity's program until today on Fox and friends so in response to all this Rudy talked to a couple of days reporters and tried to say that this whole thing was planned out he said the president was very pleased we discussed this revelation in advance does not expect to be fired with private customer reported after talking to him does not expect to be fired my favorite phrase what more job security and you hope for them to not be expect to be fired so ask the question is is there a world where you see that Rudy and the president did talk about this in advance that he was going to bring this up at some point NY. What is the upside to Rudy Giuliani disclosing this information to the public there is no world were they plan this out is is it's a bad idea it's poorly executed every part of it it drips in stupidity in Farragut it's it's I mean it's just it's so but there's been some rationale in Rudy's head for wanting to do this which I think it goes to the legality of or at least how they interpret the campaign finance laws which is seems quite different than how the laws are actually written they believed that the problem with Michael Cohen paying a hundred and thirty thousand dollars for this was that he's not supposed to make an in kind contribution that large because there are campaign contribution limits and thus if they announced that trump himself actually made the payment that's okay because trump is allowed to contribute unlimited funds to his own campaign would they have not realized is that on the campaign limits contribution limits that may be true but even if you contribute money to your own campaign you still have to report that money and if you don't that's a violation and if you willfully no one only don't report that then that could be a felony and they don't seem to have grasped that part of the law rudy may have read the first page of illegal memo prepared by attorney but he did not read the second page and so it is so the there's something much bigger than than the campaign finance law which we can get to but if you were to reverse engineer a strategy to this like there is no strategy he does not see me elise sharp he the reason he was talking because there was a camera in front of him which has long been his habit and he has verbal diarrhea is not a legal strategy and if you there were a strategy it is it within the context of the Cohen Investigation or the Muller or Muller's investigation at trump they know the truth so the truth is eventually GonNa come out so you want to put it out on your terms that if there were competent people working on this complicated problem that would be a way which would happen this is not how you would do it you would do it you would come out with this was a well organized well thought out legal arguments why it was not a crime they did not do that they mumbled some things and then had no answers to the next seventeen questions but eventually I think they know that Muller notice and they know that from the questions and therefore eventually it's GonNa come out see she put it on your own terms but on your own terms not rudy Giuliani babbling on Sean Hannity that's not a way any combination vacations fractional do this well and there's also plenty of evidence that they did not plan this for at least east the Hannity interview because Hannity as you all heard on that clip clearly caught off guard Oh oh the only real disappointment is that the camera was not on Hannity when he reacted so we can't see his face because it's on Guiliani but you just here offscreen Hannity Oh oh I didn't know that so hannity was surprised which normally that would be you'd expect the journalist asking the questions to be surprised but since entity is a shadow chief of staff of the White House you thought that he would have been probably read in on the strategy before Giuliani went on and also a number of White House aides or all telling reporters learning that they had no idea this was going to happen so clearly they also lied about it being a strategy to do that last night the Hannity thing is so great because Hannity's sitting there going I'm here I'm doing my job I am doing propaganda for the president and other sudden he stumbles into journalism is like fuck what am I do cut the cameras it's so so after all that Rudy wakes up this morning and thanks why don't I go to Fox and friends let's go back and try it they just step on another few rakes so he goes he goes back on Fox and friends and I think we actually we have a great clip of of what he said there too? You're seeing that Stephanie Clifford made these allegations told Donald Trump's lawyer denied and denied them and they said isn't true however imagine if that came out on October Fifteenth Join Sixteen the last debate with Hillary Clinton sort of making way they they made this whole even ask according to that cone medical way he did his job this is what the fucking mob talks like it also so here's the important thing about that revelation the entire law whether they broke the law now hinges on whether this payment was made in a way to influence the election and rudy on Fox and friends was trying to say this had nothing to do with politics it had to do with you know protecting the first lady and the president's own reputation et Cetera et Cetera and then he says that imagine if this came out during the debate I would shows that of course the payment was meant to influence the election it was meant to protect Donald Trump's reputation in the last days of the twenty sixteen election therefore it was an in kind contribution therefore it should have been reported to the FCC it was not therefore it is a felony if only committed by now Michael Cohen and possibly the United States and also we know that Michael Cohen believes that he's probably in legal trouble over this because a couple of days ago he pled the fifth in the state he pled the fifth saying that he did not want to speak about the stormy Daniels thing because he did not want to incriminate himself because he committed crimes I mean it we should note as many people on legal twitter point out that pleading the fifth is not mean you're guilty it is your legal right as a citizen of course but you kid we have to analyze this in the context of everything else right which is this is the attorney for the United States this is this is the legal context I was also a political context and then there's also just the rank Apocrypha of everyone in the trump orbit making claiming that anyone who pleaded the fifth breath was guilty which was their argument about various people related to the Hilary Clinton email investigation so everyone is full of shit these we'll do not get the benefit of the doubt at least in the court of public opinion you know the court of law could figure it out there are some other illegal elements here too that are worth noting which is it's not passed campaign finance law because the president then also according to this I got this from the twitter feed of Walter shop who was the head of the Office of government ethics before he was ceremonies -ly pushed out by the trump administration due to their anti ethics position is it is that he also if this was part of a deal with Cohen He- oh come and money which is a liability that should have been reported on his financial disclosure arm something that you sign under penalty of perjury that you're testing to you know to be true to the best of your ability so then trump also lied on his Kalani for your first piece of public service in seventeen years and then this morning trump had three tweets that all look like they were written by lawyers except he spelled the word roles all like Giuliani's roller stormies role as Arrow. Ll which is pretty funny so even his even his lawyers have typos but it's very lawyerly statement where he talked about how Cohen was paid out of his retainer and this agreement was made because stormy Daniels was leveling false accusations about trump and blah blah blah about Blah it all seemed fairly confusing and like it didn't fix anything whatsoever yeah it's the the twitter so great because there's no like Ron and they'd never says which high and there's no exclamation point there's no random parentheses like it is a sign that they realized that they truly fucked up and that someone who had practiced law in the last seventeen years had to do something to try to right the ship here Giuliani did not write those tweets it's too busy talking to Bob cost of the Washington Post at three in the morning so the question is like what happens now I guess on the Legal Front Muller and whatever process heaters are dealing with the Cohen case May or may not move forward on additional charges or certainly they got some new information last night and then I guess in the Court of Public opinion I mean this morning Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about this why did the president lied to us for so long and now she's using the excuse I can't comment on ongoing litigation Chin even though that was not the case a few weeks ago when she said that the president knew nothing about these payments so she's a straight shooter as we always knew I mean it's just it seems TMZ is though the White House has now been caught in some pretty huge lies over this last week in addition to lying about knowing about the payments stormy Daniels we also had the story this week about trump's Dr president trump's longtime personal doctor Harold Bornstein this week said that trump dictated him with a right and a two thousand fifteen letter that stated he'd be quote the healthiest individual ever usually dictated the entire thing born also said that trump's bodyguard raided his office and retrieve trump's medical records this is pretty serious allegations here right that completely bullshit during the campaign at the same time his entire campaign was trying to tell everyone that Hillary Clinton was on her deathbed so who pretty big lies this week let's Sarah Huckabee Sanders for a second because some people further as the press secretary I referred her as the murderer of American comedy she has gone out she is the spokesperson for the President's Day it's in the entire government the.
