"Best fiends. All right welcome back hot notes. All right welcome back over the weekend. We got a trove of emails from Noah about Sharpie Gate and Jordan. You have that story. Oh yes we all remember sharpie age. Don't we So yeah a bunch of documents were released Friday that shed light on how trump's you radic response. That's really the only way to describe that. I think just floundering in ignorance in throwing lightning bolts at anyone that tries to even not even call him out directly. Just get the truth out there. They they were just in his complete line of fire But this response was in response to Hurricane Doreen and what his response did was shake up. Top officials and scientists at Noah that's the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. This all happened back in September. We have documents. Thanks again to a foia request by The Washington Post and other news outlets so big ups to foia and all those agencies your heroes in this day and age are the documents show that the second highest official the agency said that neither he or the acting administrator okay'd statement that in Noah spokesperson put out September six that criticized the national weather. Service Service Office for contradicting trump's inaccurate claim that Alabama would most likely be hit much harder than anticipated so basically if just to refresh your memory. He puts out this false information. A statement is then issued saying no. No it wasn't basically. Yeah He. He drew the sharpie thing. Everyone went what did you just draw a map. And then no one came out and released a statement right saying trump's right it's cool. He was right eight album. Oh could you could have been a problem. Yes yes sorry I should clarify the public outrage and then there was no anticipated upholding of science there was holding of the president and it's pretty widely held within the organization that happened because of political pressure from the White House and the Department apartment of Commerce This is a quote from someone in the agency said please accept meals replies a sincere acknowledgement of a press release. We did not approve of or support report. You know for my multiple messages to you and your colleagues that we respecting stand behind your service in scientific integrity and quote of the Post also reported that the pressure to release the statement came from Mick Mulvaney so he's popping up The emails also reveal that emails were being exchanged between high level employees that that seemed circle around the idea of them wanting to resign over the debacle and that they were encouraging the other to stay to hang in there and try to keep the integrity within the organization nation and basically just to hang on so basically. What's revealed is that when something feels a little off I think it is and it was probably demanded by the white the house and that is terrifying and these emails prove it? Yeah yeah the. And it's it's just sad to read the actual language from these people who've worked really hard hard and they're fucking scientists and they try to remain very political and just like watching them get dragged into all of this. It's just really is just really sad that they have to even concern themselves with this sort of pr it's effectively like a PR stunt at the White House you know. I didn't start as as a stunt more just as snap Faux Pas that then it turned into this entire PR project and they're putting out statements. and and then Noah's you know expected to respond and they are holding off on it because they're like. How do we do this? Meanwhile Mick Mulvaney swoops in somehow gets Noah to respond with the statement. That's totally uncharacteristic. Then there's people that lose trust in Noah and it's not their fault like that's kind of what these emails are showing is who's fault even was this listen. Please don't I got from this reporting that we should not fall to noah. Yeah and there's a lot of this going on in the government eh in the executive branch specifically at but at all levels where we're everyone's just sort of scrambling like do I resign. I can't do this. They want me to do this. Should I stay here and try to protect the agency that I worked for. Should I resign should I would do I do. I'm not I I don't know I don't know what to do here and also it's my career and my money in my life and Gosh I don't know anything about that from personal experience whatsoever. Yeah it's really sad. It's all will be revealed in due time but Yeah that's that's that's going on across Agencies Yeah and then I'm thinking of the other reporting. We were doing even even on like the National Archives just with. That's the women's March photo that was blurred out to you. Know Mitt things that were detrimental to trump's image and stuff like that where it's like they're these federally funded agencies that we do not want to have politics tainting how they operate and time any time again. They are and every time it happens. It feels very fishy and then we find out that it was probably because of some sort of pressure from some sort of higher ups that's yet to be determined with the National Archive Archive Story. But it's it's hard to. It's hard to imagine that it didn't come from something that was higher up than than were there you know. Yeah 'cause because it doesn't seem like it's in their interest to turn away from the truth in all of these cases yeah these are independent agencies. That do their jobs and To to do something like that I I have to. You have to be told by someone to do it. you'd think and so we we a hundred times out of one hundred. It's coming from it's come from the White House to make trump not look bad. Yeah it's scary yes it definitely is and there's more scary stuff on the way because my hot note note is about the Flynn case Because we got some news this week on the Flynn case as we all know. Let's let's backtrack a little bit. Flynn was supposed to be sentenced. Initially in December of twenty eighteen and but he took the strong hint from Sullivan. The judge that he should go forth and cooperate more he he. He asked him six times. You do you I I don't think you want me to do this today. And finally took the hint. Okay and and you and he did go and forth cooperate more at least for a little while he was going to be a star witness the Bijon Rafiki and or Bijon Kyanne Faira case He's The guy that partnered with Flynn to lobby for Turkey without registering foreign aid. But Flynn decided Ah to fire his normal lawyers and Higher Bat Shit Crazy Fox. News Muller Conspiracy Theorist named Sydney Powell and just like that he went from a cooperating witness in the Rafiki in case as to a CO conspirator in the Rafiki in case Rafiki conviction was actually thrown out for lack of evidence in the Department of Justice is appealing that decision. But but perhaps without Flynn as a witness their case might not make it despite obvious guilt from both Rafiki and in Flint so the Flynn's sentencing kept getting pushed back and pushed back until finally Flynn then filed to ask Sullivan if he could withdraw his guilty plea saying he didn't lie to the FBI because he was tricked This is something that he adamantly admitted over and over again to in that first sentencing hearing Sullivan and then the government filed asking for more time to submit a follow up sentencing. Memo saying we need more time we need a little bit. We're having other people review this shit when more time to figure out what to do with his asshole so they were granted that extension for a week. It didn't at that time. Push back the January twenty the eight the sentencing which was has passed and has been re scheduled for February twenty eighth but at the time they pushed back a week to January twenty first and then they they were. They filed that they were no longer recommending. No jail time and instead they were recommending the Max for his one count of lying to the FBI which is zero to six months. According to the sentencing guidelines lines were recommending. The Max I know zero. Six months doesn't sound like a Max but at that's the Max for what he did But just recently department of Justice which is run by bill bar amended that filing seeing two things we still recommend zero to six months but secondly we think probation is still on the table namely because Flynn was a general and he served his country and there are a few cases in the past where the courts granted downward variants on sentencing because the criminal was also in the military and they cited the general betray US case among a few others. But here's the RUB. My first thought is the bars behind this bars. teeing up for a probation to let flew off the hook at the direction of trump because trump probably shouldn't pardon anyone in his current impeached state but there are also. Does anything stopped low. No there are also theories out there that the DOJ is baiting baiting Sullivan here. Because Sullivan has said in the past that he disagrees with downward variance for servicemembers specifically. He disagreed with the sentencing in the portrays case interesting. So it's one of two things. Either bar interfered here in interfered here to help Flynn out without knowing Sullivan has a distaste for people asking for leniency. Because because of the they wore a uniform or the US attorney in DC knows Sullivan's propensity for disagreeing with downward various for service members. And did this to poke at him in hopes for a harsher sentence or for not probation Interesting two very different routes there. I find it interesting that he's against that sort. Sort of view of lessening a sentence for Servicemember. Maybe it's sort of a we hold you to a higher standard sort of mentality right. That's probably what it is magin which I agree with as do I. Yeah that's Kinda strange notion that you would get more of a pass away breaking laws. Yeah it's like not only do you know the laws more than everyone but you uphold them you fought to uphold them. Yeah Yeah Yeah So. That's just an interesting really interesting question. I know that Marcy Wheeler did a whole piece is on. I think they're trying to Pope Solomon to say that it's good guys at the Department of Justice who are saying. Hey Sullivan come on man you could give him probation. You could give them zero months. You know because he wore a uniform portrays knowing that he's come out against that in the past publicly. Yeah do they use reverse psychology in the courts. It's a weird thing to comment commented to me. Yeah we'll just because it's such a gamble. It's not like advocating for certain legal opinions gambling on them having a certain reaction to it. I think it's it's more likely bar interfering on behalf of trump. Yeah I agree and either not knowing about the portrayal thing or knowing about it and putting it in there there is sort of a.
Falling and Getting Back Up
"So I felt earlier this week. I was getting out of the shower. And my equilibrium must have been off of consciousness. I fell backwards. I don't think it hurt myself but I've been taking the lead this week. I mean privates about getting older but in the same week somebody that I know I won't say who it is. I don't want them to feel bad. But they fell off their hover board for a little bit. They didn't WanNa get back on the hover board and then they also didn't want to go outside again with it I get it. I still haven't learned to ride a bike doc and partly because I fell off the badly when I was a teen and I just have to get back on. Sometimes it can be hard to get back on because you're afraid of how your past hurt but while we were watching the new lion king. My brother-in-law mentioned there's one line that's missing. That's in the original animated linking. The line. Were Rafiki says Oh oh yes the past can hurt but the way I see it you can either run from it or learn from it and they kind of made me think about when we fall and other physically or not physically early. What happens when we don't want to get back on because you remember that that hurt you remember pain that you feel? You don't WanNa get back into it. The things I've gotten back into because of the pain because of the hurt and because it's the end of the year make me think about this next year. I'm I'm GONNA fall again. Hopefully not physically but I will make mistakes this past year. I left Karaoke doing on twitch things until this past vacation where icing in from an audience three to four times. I did not want to get back into Karaoke. I didn't WanNa make the mistake of failing a song or stuff like that but after doing that Karoki. I've I started doing it again on. Twitter sings in one of the song that's on twitter. Things now is secure. Try everything from Zootopia and one of the lines. I love the secure song long is I won't give up. I won't give out try everything even though I could fail and I love that idea we could fail. We're GONNA fall. Things aren't going to go right and many times. I've failed again doing these podcasts. And you streams things that having Gone Reich on the right way but look at it Renou episode one twenty two tonight tonight. I'll be recording episode. One thirty nine of my gaming podcast protecting a dear friend about has taken twenty eight twenty nine years to finally see what what am I gives his is in this world and how I can contribute back so this week in this year when we fall when we fail. Let's get right back up. Let's continue at it again. Because Rock Isley. The person that fell off the board by the end of the day doing so much better than they were the beginning of the day and before anybody says this is not one of those words. That's going to catch on fire. We got a lot of the reviews.
Disney, Nala Donald Glover And James Earl Jones discussed on Bald Movies
"Latest live action cash grab the Lion King directed by Jon Favreau and you know I never would have guessed that the man who breathed life into a multi billion dollar franchise but taking a third tier marvel property like iron man and taking passion for source material I I never thought that he you would brought that same passion to the Lion King and you know what I was right because in my opinion this is like the most of all the pointless Disney remakes this is the most pointless and the one that comes off the shabby shabby as compared to its source material Jim. What did you think and maybe talk about your personal relationship with the Lion King of any so I think the Jon Favreau had quite the passion for the source material because he just recycled it and not in like the way where you I don't know take something you have? It's old fashioned into something new. That's useful in a different way. This was the lion king like this is the most Lion King Lion King movie <hes> outside outside of the Lion King I mean the thing is is is the lion king. Only all of the animals were injected. The Boat Docks Yeah Animation <hes> that's. That's the only thing that was different about this movie in any way right. There's one hint of new song none of the plot points or any different than the lion king you remember from ninety four. It's all the same it's just a it's just a cross aboard worse version yeah and completely like you said unnecessary. I think this is like the thing I liked about. Aladdin is Kinda took it a direction and modernized it updated five the problem. The parts were little creaky and little stale where we've moved on as a society they've kind of you know propped it up and they didn't try to like out Robin Williams Robin Williams on the genie whereas this it's like. I don't understand how the animation tests came back for. These animals father wasn't like okay we gotta ditched his documentary approach and have these lions smile. Give him some fucking eyebrows house allow on the show some gene grief and rage because we know I've seen the lion king many many many many times and there's a couple of scenes where you're you're geared up to anticipate and it's exactly. The same lines exactly the same framing except for Simba's faces a grim frozen mask that is capable of showing anything other than way honestly my house cats more expressive. I that's the thing that really really surprised me and I saw a listen problems with that in like some of the trailers I saw but like I don't know I mean it's this isn't a bad film in fact honestly the first five minutes. I actually started thinking well. Maybe I'm wrong because it gave me the exact same goosebumps that intro of the Classic Lion King Circle Life Yeah <hes> but even then it's like there's a couple of parts or like you know like there's a couple of things that you you know you can do in animation like when you blink and step forward and sun you can have a baby draft. Blankets is in this. I mean if they did that with his baby. Draft who the fuck knows because baby drafts don't blink in the sun it turns out it's almost it felt like one of those Old Walt Disney movies like <hes> <hes> what is the journey home or whatever where the actually take a real poppy in a real cat kitten and or they have like little bound very tightly homered ban yeah they make a movie around around like their natural expressions and stuff <hes> but there's just I don't know I mean I didn't really pay any attention to the casting like I didn't know anybody <hes> and there's <hes> great great cat like you know the Simba Nala Donald Glover beyond say knowles stats a fucking dynamite combination like John Oliver as the Domo's as zoo is pretty inspired casting the return of James Earl Jones James Jones. You can't do better than that. I thought that <hes> Billy Eichner as to Moan was really good eye Eric Andre I know seth th- Rogan is Okay Yeah Eric Andrea one of the hyenas I I mean I said it's just I mean we can talk about it the scene by scene point by point and the trailer earn the spoiler section like do I want to on this one because if you've seen the Lion King you've seen the entirety of this movie. It's just like they changed a damn thing. No they range all all the life yeah. Apparently the animators didn't get to note that the scene. Can you feel the love tonight actually takes place at night not at noon just many many references to it being evening and being nights and then it. Blend smoothly into another night scenes really pivotal and what the fuck what the fuck why are they why are they having animated these lions in broad daylight. I don't know because you can. They're more expressive in the day. I don't ever more expressive in the day. That's the only thing I think of is the other thing is speaking of that. I defy you to tell any of those lionesses apart <hes> yeah lights off in the cartoon version. There are subtle variations in color facial expression oppression. I mean they're all kind of unique individuals. At least you know the Nairobi and Nala and the ones actually have speaking roles this like they literally all look the same and when Simba's fighting scarred there's many time I lost track of WHO Simba who was scar and they found it hilarious that these battles are so bloodless. I don't know how you get a name like scar. If nothing can cut your skin I know 'cause like it'd be like it's cannon that Mu Fossa awesome fucked him up the part of his ear off and really hideously scarred him so but yeah you can't do that when <hes> although to realistic you can't do I was kind of put off by the mature subject matter. They're they're. They're saying the F. A. R._T.. Word heard they are in case. Let that slide through yeah yeah really risk and is this P._G.. I don't know it probably is it wouldn't be stupid like whatever the whatever the original was here. It's the same because it is is the same so so. Maybe I'm a little harness movie but I actually this was the very first Walt Disney animated movie I ever saw because I my mom was a religious nut job the type of religion I mean there's lots of different ways to be a religious just not job as a parent but <hes> her particular nutjob Orie was magic anything magic and I'll add in allow <hes> sleeping beauty no little rain when the fucking sea he which get Outta here those legs are mad. I remember the look my sister and I gave each other when Rafiki started doing medicine Monkey Shit and we're like Oh God and my mom's is started twitching like us a spiritism. Does a spiritism like she's please do not storm out of that we we. We begged her to take her come on the line game. There's no magic there's no warlock in this fucking monkey starts. Doing you know the the magic adjacent shit he starts doing like some kind of weird monkey and melon based divination a nation he starts doing martial arts karate at the end which is the other kind of spiritism adjacent but it was near and dear to my heart because I that's the very first and I remember just like just like being just completely amazed at the opening act. And really moved when Fossa dies and like also we had that movie I was the only Disney animated movie for a long long time that we had on V._H._S. and my brother and sister and I kind of wore it out over the course of a summer so I'd fucking love this the Super N._S.. Lion King Okay. I don't think I ever made it past the third level because it's freakishly hard but there's a lot I have a lot of affection for this source material and Dan I just to me they should have cleaned it up that those prints as shiny as they could make him they should've completely redone to sound and just re released it because this is just you know Lion King's Tinton movie. This is like six attitude execution of that movie. This is a high school musical version of the Broadway version of the Lion King. I could see that yeah. I didn't find it offensive. I found that it was in in maybe everything except for the expressive -ness of the characters was just as effective as the original was but yeah it was entirely unnecessary. This is a fairly obvious cash crap. I didn't didn't feel that way coming out of Aladdin. I know a lot of people didn't feel that way coming out of beauty and the beast and you know the the Dumbo did People Watch Dumbo. Nobody watched dumbo right everywhere. I heard it was pretty fucking shitty. Yeah I didn't see it. I didn't either her because I heard it was pretty shitty and guess what you've got Milan coming down the pike. I don't I've never seen Milan. I mean it's a fine. It's it's it's probably one of the lesser of the new golden age of Disney like it's kind of their into Pocahontas level level where it's like animation still amazing songs that nearly as catchy core concept not as solid and I've heard that they're actually a skewing the songs more or less in Milan and just like a straight like a straight drama weird. I could be wrong on that but I just. I don't know I it. It's it's not it's so cynical. I said cash grab because it's it's not it's not just a blatant redundant cash grab. It's just a pace. These does relentless Klis pace that they're that they're doing them into. I don't understand why we need. Five remakes of Disney live action Disney movies in a single year and I don't even know if it might be more than that like. I don't know if they've got. They're going to sneak something out. Pass them along before Christmas. I don't know I don't know they just cast a little mermaid. I I don't know how far that's that that's behind but who's playing Sebastian. I don't know okay. That's my biggest question about that movie. Maybe Ahmed Best Okay Yeah sure thanks Yeah Sebastian yeah he so Whoopi Whoopi in the under the sea yeah love song so I got some more stuff to say 'cause I got. I actually Kinda WanNa actually KINDA WANNA break it down so you might say because he's keep on saying that it's shot for shot for Lion King and that's my biggest problem is is that I don't think it is. I think they're I mean they try not shot but beat for beat. Story is one hundred percent every bit of the staging is is noticeably inferior and worse than than the than the the original and some of the things that like what they did to be prepared is a God damn criminal travesty. That's one of my favorite songs from the Lion King and I've never seen a more dispirited parroted punting of a musical number then than I have. I don't know Jimmy Nicholson who I considered. The foremost expert on Disney films on the Internet suggested that there's also a muted quality due to vocal performances like everything everyone's kind of like instead of like even James Earl Jones instead of just like because I remember I I can I can hear in my head exactly how he says. Nobody messes is with the year old band or I can. I can hear like they. They just didn't quite nail it and her theory is they had to have all the actor scale back because if they were as a motive as the original lion king it would look wildly out of place with the animation style and it's like the one thing that you could have gone ten for ten and let like Donald Glover and beyond say and James Will Jones uncork and actually you know she would tell Chew Hotel Jia for <hes> who I think is an amazing actor. He got the world's most laid back quiet unassuming scar and it's just a shame because he's trying to follow giant. Jeremy Irons plays one of the the all time Great Disney villain voices and it just. I don't know
"rafiki" Discussed on The Bechdel Cast
"I always felt like an uncle vibe of like yeah. You're taking care of their technically like your caretakers but they're not like make ensure. You're learning earning things like they're not teaching. You much like literally their whole life. Philosophy is don't care yes so what really can they be teaching him right and yet in the montage Matata he learns everything he needs to know about life and is ready to go back to resume yeah it is and then we learned that and I never there's never really registered for me but in that senior they're looking at the stars to permit in Simba you learn that simple has never told them anything about his background right <hes> he so. They know very little about him there. They've just kind of been feeding bugs. Maybe they're like I wanna know what they are. Well you have to Sea Lion King One and a half which is a one and a half women have is is I think of the to direct to video lion king's though superior area. It's just literally what Timonium Puno redoing during all the parts of the lion king that they're not in no it's really funny. It's like Oh my God and it's Nathan Lane and earnings about like Matthew Broderick. The whole cast came back for this two thousand four direct to video jio really good. I haven't seen that one either class. It's amazing and they called half. Yeah interesting thought it was going to be a twenty minute video looking twenty minute clip. I have some reason for some reason they made it a feature feature. I'm I'm kind of Mr Activity. Oh I guess I'd like there are some net flicks projects that are comparable to direct to video sh- into or you're just like what is who is this four. It's like is so much work for who I love that stuff so anyway so we've got Simba who is like emotionally repressed. We've got Nala coming back. Here's here's what really drives me nuts about. This storyline is that knowledge comes back and she's like Simba. You've been gone all this time time. Our homeland has been deteriorating. We're living under this Nazi regime. Please come back and help us. You're only hope and as this like no things and then a male character shows up Rafiki Rafiki and he's like Hey Simba. You should really like look inside yourself and then consider going back and he's like you're right. A man told me I should do that. So I'm wait. The mayor showed him his daddy and a sky magic McMahon magic. Yeah I feel like Griffey and he does know Rafiki. Rafiki did the whole hold on the rock which he doesn't remember that. I don't think he knows Rafiki actually when he shows back up right because he's like yeah I knew your father. Who are you in these others dead sorry to break it to you dude? He doesn't recognize him at all. I know what you mean but I think he's also like I could've used a scene of all the lady lines like trying to overthrow scars capacity and failing. Do you know what I mean like just a pop of what was going on back home right yeah how they tried to fight back and couldn't do it. I think that would help just logistically help offset some of the tone stuff too because you don't know what's going on until you're seeing dystopia right before. Simba gets back and it would be an it's like you get that one shot of Sarabi like holding her head high as she is like walking through this like Hyena Helle degn and you can sort like you get an idea like she's been through a lot..
"rafiki" Discussed on Mueller, She Wrote
"Because he would be jailed and probably tortured there, if he did. And, and we already knew Flynn was paid over half a million to write up ED's about Gula n-, and we knew from a letter written to Mike Pence, biologic Cummings way, back in the day November twenty seventeen. I think that the day after Trump appointed Flynn that Cummings wanted Pence. No sorry. The letter was written the day after Trump appointed Flint. So it was before Trump took office, but he wanted to Pence to tell him about Flynn's lobbying activities for Turkey but it wasn't until now in these documents that we had evidence that Flynn was actually a secret secret paid for an agent. I mean I had a feeling we knew we put on it. Yeah. It's time Turkey Turkey. We had a whole Turkey up and say, all right. Guys time for the fantasy indictment league. No, it is going to be Honey, dick. Can't it's gonna be okay. Just come down. All right. Guys, if you had superseding indictments on bijon kion in your fantasy indictment league this week. Give yourself a point is there were actually superseding indictment filed against him. And LT in this week for lying to prosecutors about lobbying for Turkey in his response kion said that the lobbying did not take place at the direction of any foreign principal. The lie detector determined. That was alive. And it was probably where we got all the new Flynn documents we mentioned in sabotage. So if you want to read the new material, it's in the Zhang Qian, or his name's bijon Rafiki, and, but he goes by bijon kion. It's on page fifteen and sixteen to the court documents filed on may twenty third. So I think you go first and I'm second. Oh, okay. Trump inaugural. Ooh. Trump inaugural. I think they're going to be superseding indictments on stone since Miller, just testified. Okay. I'm gonna go ahead and take Cindy Yang. Tom barrack doubled down. Nice. Go with Coursey Trump campaign. Rando. Miller. For like inevitably lying in his ten. And I don't think we talked about this week Miller testified on Friday..
