The Financial Lies Behind Anti-Oil Industry Hysteria
"I am Alex Epstein author of fossil future why global human flourishing requires more oil, colon natural gas, not less. He is the presenter of this week's PragerU video fossil fuels the big picture. Alex is a fighter, Alex is a truth teller, and it is the light to have you on again, Alex. Alex do they ever pleasure? Alex, did they ever invite you for debates? I would say I forced debates. I don't know, nobody was inviting me for debates at Greenpeace or something like that or the Sierra club fundraiser. I think it would be a pretty failed fundraiser. If I were invited to debate, I mean, tomorrow, though, here's an interesting thing. There's this event in Dallas called earth X run by a guy named Trammell crow. And the secretary of energy, former secretary of energy Rick Perry helped organize an event and it's going to be him interviewing me and then the Texas state climatologist who's somewhat of a climate catastrophe. So that's not exactly a debate, but I think it'll be really interesting for people to see what happens when we square up against each other.

Sean Davis Responds to the Latest News Out of Manhattan
"It's been a while. Welcome back, Sean Davis. Thank you for having me. All right, we have to discuss all kinds of things. While you were locked out of your Twitter account, what went on in Nashville in the broader ramifications. But first, let's talk about the news of the last 24 hours. Alvin Bragg, I have said as an immigrant to this country whose parents escaped communism, we have crossed a line here and there can be no negotiating with the other side. We have to crush them politically and then we have to dis mantle the deep state your response to the news out of Manhattan. I mean, it's an embarrassment in unfortunately it's not surprising at all. The left has made clear that the only crime they care about, the only one they will not tolerate is opposing their politics. And with Trump having been president, potentially being president again, they're going to set an example with him that if you oppose us, especially if you win, you will pay. And it's interesting to remember I was reminded by a colleague today, he's not the first Republican presidential candidate to be indicted on nonsense. Recall that Rick Perry was indicted by a corrupt Travis county DA back in 2014 when he vetoed funding for a prosecutor's office after the prosecutor had been driving drunk and gotten caught on video bullying the cops and attacking them. And they said he had to go to prison because he had abused his power. This is not a new trend with the left. They hate their opposition and they will crush them by any means necessary and Trump is just the latest victim of

Do Presidential Candidates Have a Message That Will Motivate Voters?
"Wondering now, what is the Republican message going to be? And we have a new and we have a new candidate who announced about ten days ago, Vivek, Rama swanny. And he is known as the woke CEO, I don't know how far he's going to go. He's made a lot of noise on social media. He's doing the circuit and talking about different things. But the message seems to be one that his, it's been out there before. It's like what you and I have talked about before about bumper sticker. He talks about, well, we don't need the Department of Education. Okay, Rick Perry said that 8 years ago, most Republicans have said that for a long time. Are we just revisiting this? Or, you know, what's the issue? Well, we don't need to pardon the energy, okay? Well, we've dealt with that one before. You know, we've dealt with the diversity equity inclusion stuff. He's an interesting voice, younger voice, but James is the younger generation and my generation going to come together on a Canada that is older, like say a Donald Trump, a former president who still holds a lot of sway in the Republican Party or you've got Nikki Haley. Tim Scott probably getting in to my pants, Pompeo. To say, actually, present the difference. I mean, where are we going to get past the talking points in this campaign? Doug, this is whether you're Republican or Democrat. This is the issue, and it's the generational gap. Especially the Republican Party, right? It feels like there's just not a young audience. They're out there. Just make that clear. They are out there. Right. But it feels like they're not being seen or heard by the party. And I think that's always going to be the issue. That's why you always see a lot of younger people on the left.

"Area and a majority of states now allow mobile sports betting or legal betting in some areas. The New York Times has taken a deep dive into this into the intense lobbying that went into this effort to quickly expand betting and in many states the terms are favorable to the gambling industry. This morning we turned to times investigative reporter Eric Lipton for his take. It really is transformational in a number of ways, both in our relationship with sports, which is such a prominent part of American culture and it also is a really massive business enterprise too. It's a transformational terms of our relationship with this pastime of ours because now it's part of the gambling industry. And secondly, it's transformation on that. This is the fastest expansion of gambling in the United States history. There's been lottery for decades. There's been casinos for decades, but now for much of the United States. There is a device that's in your pocket that's on at all times that you can now legally bet on and you can make as many bets as you want. And it's right there and it's instantaneous. It really has transformed both our relationship with sports and also the gambling industry in the United States. It's just exploded in its reach. Based on your reporting, some rather lavish gifts were involved in bringing the lawmakers in some of these states around to voting for some of this. Yeah, there were millions of dollars in campaign contributions. There were meals and cigars and liquor. There were funded trips that were paid for to go to conferences. They were visits with prominent sports figures that were kind of an impressive thing. And most of all, there was this unbelievably intense lobbying effort across the United States. Cumulatively hundreds of lobbyists and each state they would hire their own set of lobbyists often former legislators or government officials, just for example, Texas, they just hired Rick Perry, the former governor to be the advocate for sports betting there, because Texas has been one of the holdouts. In each state, they build up different teams of lobbyists that are the most well placed and have the most influence and most connections. And then they basically go ahead and they help draft the legislation that they went past and then they build the coalition and the state legislatures to get it done. Now, in addition to all you mentioned, the fancy alcoholic beverages and cigars and campaign contributions and other lavish gifts. There was the promise of collecting a lot of money. Is that sort of a mixed picture now, Eric as we look at it on the other end? The American gaming association argues, and I think they do have a disappoint here that this is an immature industry, and that it's not really fair yet to evaluate how successful they are in many of these states which have only started recently. But if you do look at the individual states, which we did, and you look at the amount of tax revenue that they've collected and the approximately 15 states that have mobile betting that have tax rates in the range that the American gaming association suggested that the state's adopt. For the most part, those states have collected less tax revenues than the American gaming association said they were going to. And in some cases far below. And then in the states that went with much higher tax rates, they're collecting much more in taxes than the American gaming association said they could expect to see. Now, again, it is still early. And I think that as time passes, it's possible. Maybe even likely that the projections that the American gaming association put out will turn out to be on the Mark. But so far, this has not been a revenue generator as expected as much as the American gaming association argued it was going to be for many of the states

That's what it is. No other nations are Tapping into their oil reserves and a collective effort to bring it down, not going to work. The kind of amount of oil we consume in the world is one of those pieces of data that nobody really knows. It's so astonishing, high. Except maybe the secretary of the energy, right?

Do you know how many barrels of oil does the U.S. consume per day? I don't have that number in front of me. Some suggest it's about 18 million, which would suggest your releasing less than three days worth of supply from the petroleum reserve. Why is that enough? It isn't enough.

"At tens of thousands of dollars a year. Do, Gray said The coursework was challenging, but it was that intern year that was toughest, she says it was one of the most difficult years of her teaching career. Oh, my God. Horrible. I hated it. Honestly, if I'm being very transparent, I hated it. I loved my students have always been, um, a person who I believe my top priority is the kids and so my connection with the students were great. However they environment was not She says she didn't feel like she had enough support from administrators or in the classroom. She also felt overwhelmed by all the paperwork and record keeping required and all the meetings before after in between classes. But she went to teach at a high school the next year, and she loved it. She sort of fallen in love with teaching, and she seems to be good at it. She says. Even at the end of this last coronavirus year, her students scored among the highest in her school on the state's standardized test called Star. And now that I have that skill, and I, you know In a sense, polished it and I've got some experience. I want to see where I can bring the skill you know, to the next level somewhere else. By the end of this last year, teaching remotely under coronavirus, she decided to take a different job. She's working in her same school district but as an instructional specialist. Part of that job is working with teachers on areas they struggle with and helping to improve their instruction. She won't be in the classroom anymore, so her district will have to find someone to replace her to Gray says the Texas Teachers of Tomorrow program did prepare her in many ways. The program trained me in a sense of, I guess behind the scenes, but I don't think anything will actually prepare you. For the classroom, except for maybe substitute teaching, getting their hands on experience that face to face in person experience. You know, Every classroom is different every Student demographic is different, and every day is different. You know, you may have kids. I have a good day, and then you're expecting it to always be the same. And that's not the case right the next Monday it could be a horrible day, so I don't think any training necessarily prepares you for that. It's hands on Texas Teachers of tomorrow was founded with people like Ju Gray and mind. A politically connected businessman named Vernon Research started the company as a plus. Texas teachers with teacher Kathy Schreiber Clark in the early two thousand's research had been working with school districts and lobbying at the Texas capital around issues related to teacher pay and school conditions. He was well aware of the teacher shortages in the state, and he had an idea for a business make it easier for people to switch their career to teaching. Find a way for people to become teachers without having to go back to college to get a teaching degree. Here's research in a video on YouTube, so we haven't broader base of people age ranges, backgrounds, diversity, geographic location, and these folks are most of them. It's their second career. Reese. There's a man of many hats. Besides running teachers of tomorrow, He's been a member of the Texas Association of Realtors and the Independent Cattlemen's Association. He ran for the Texas House in 1998 as a Democrat and lost But he's been a fairly large donor to Republican governors, Rick Perry and Greg Abbott. He's donated more than $170,000 to each of their campaigns. Over the years, Perry appointed research to the Texas State Board of Regents in 2013. We opened up Texas teachers and my partner, Kathy and I started from nothing. And now 15 years later, where the largest provider of teachers in the state of Texas with over 50% of all the teacher production in the end of Texas has a lot of alternative teacher training programs, everything from the for profits to the non profits to the teacher residency programs to programs run by school districts themselves. If you look at all the people who go through those alternative programs, at least half come through research program We really essentially invented this modern, streamline certification process. It's a business that would not have been allowed 20 years ago. What set the stage for companies like these, with policymakers trying to find ways to create more teachers turning up the hose filling the leaky bucket. Back in the 19 eighties, reports started coming out about how there wouldn't be enough teachers to support the growing student population in the United States, eight states decided to open up their rules about who could train teachers. They allowed school districts and colleges and non profits to create alternative training pathways. People wouldn't have to get a traditional education degree, they could get their practical experience on the job. While they took some mandatory courses and tests throughout the school year, some colleges and districts teamed up to offer residency programs that let people earn a master's in education while they taught By 2010, 48 States and Washington, D C had some type of alternative route to teacher education and certification, and they were creating thousands more teachers than before. But only one state allowed for profit teacher training companies unaffiliated with any institution of higher education to operate, and that was Texas. I personally argued against that. This is Ed Fuller. He's now a professor of education at Penn State. But back in the early two thousands, he was director of research at the Texas State Board for Educator certification. When the state government was considering allowing for profit companies in Texas to enter the teacher training realm, he pushed back said, We already have the least qualified, least prepared teachers assigned to teach the students who need the most prepared in most qualified teachers. And it was just going to exacerbate the achievement gap that already existed in Texas. The reason Fuller believed this would happen is that teacher turnover was already highest at high poverty schools that mostly served students of color. Those schools had the most open positions to fill every year, and they were often forced to hire a disproportionate number of teachers who had not done a lot of training. And that was a problem because one of the greatest indicators of whether or not a new teacher will stick around for very long is how much pre service training they've had, especially how many hours they spent student teaching before heading up a classroom of their own. And now the state was going to allow businesses into the alternative teacher training realm. So I called into question whether you know the way they had set up alternative certification. Was going to help students or harm students and in my estimation, Uh, it appeared to me that it was the system that they created was problematic, um, particularly for those students, students living in poverty and students of color. Ed Fuller warned the Texas Legislature that adding for profit certification companies to the already large number of alternative certification programs would create more teachers but not necessarily solve the teacher shortage problem..

"Texas to get a sense of the forces in play across red states when the votes are being counted. They're back in november. It looked like it was going to be very close. Between republicans and democrats wasn't it. Texas is an interesting microcosm of trends happening in america as a whole in particular diversification and the decline of white male christian america and the theory has always been that this will help democrats because people of color and other minority groups for the last half century so have tended to vote democratic and there was a theory in twenty twenty. Maybe the moment would come the backlash against donald trump and cities in texas. Such as austin which are now very liberal leaning and diverse and young and really embracing the democratic party thing of former texas governor. Rick perry has said these are like blueberries in a tomato. Soup is little dots of blue in the sea of republican red but when it came to it in the two thousand twenty election. Donald trump gained five point nine million votes there. Joe biden got five point three million votes. That was incredibly disappointing for democrats hoping for a miracle but they are eating away at republicans advantage. That might explain why. Republicans are veering to the right and really digging in and trying to shore up that power. Their tennis about greg. Abbott the texas governor. Who is he. What's he like for greg.

And that cheney name and brand there is not getting your to fifty in a primary but boy oh boy i think she's going to hold a third or a little more depending on.

I mean i said the other day you know you could throw dart against the wall of issues and and be sure. Pretty sure to hit one on which i disagree but i really admire Her for up because she's done what politicians rarely do. She's actually put herself at risk and not just political risk but personal risk. David if you're willing to fly to the district and endorse one of her opponents. Let's talk in the primary we could you could. You could be very helpful by the way. Texas has a another one of these trump laboratory. Testers a run on now. Where ron right. Who sadly and died of kovic. In february his wife is doing what we call them. Politics the widow's walk and she was in front but there's a state rep has given her halvor race made. The runoff out raised three to one. And he's by the former governor. Rick perry jake z so that trump is all in for right so this could be an interesting one where the candidate would normally have the advantage and has trump could still lose which i think would send a signal to republican inside world. That may be the trump death-ray ray what it used to be. Yeah you got another one next weekend. Ohio to devers resigned to run the chamber of commerce.

I thought you guys we're gonna give me a history lesson or anything to do with go back like a month and you know what's funny though generational because the first guy was wilt and it was a big story line of willto worlds and then. I don't really remember it happening in the seventies eighties. I think feels like shack was the next guy where it was just story after story being written about it him having coach rick perry wanting to work with and all that stuff. So it's like in every thirty years. I wanna keep talking about hannah break. Hey guess what. The nba final. They're still going new users on get thirty to one odds on either sons are bucks to win their next game. That means you can win one hundred and fifty dollars on a five dollar. Bet malcolm godoi blink test right now game. Five hundred like i like phoenix. I felt like phoenix. Was i felt throughout like even in two minutes. In the third quarter i go everything feels easier for phoenix. Remember last year. How much time we spend on houston oklahoma city that ends up going seven games. Everything felt like it was tough. Oklahoma city's score. Everything fell easier for houston. The games celtics heat was that show on. I just i think things still feel easier for phoenix. But here's what. I don't understand like when eight picked up the two fouls and like kirmani williams for putting torrey craig on yoenis. But then it's like. Hey let's get a couple more possessions. Had seen coaches hate this shit. Like for all the k stuff coach k. Coached against fouls better than anyone. I've ever seen at any level and you're likely going to have somebody take a shitty three at some point anyway. So why not just have janas with a head of steam be like hey just drive at eight and three more times if we can't get him out of the game for a little bit or why can't we attack harden with a hamstring injury or. Why can't we attack certain match ups. That coaches are so stubborn again. Everybody thinks they suck all the time. So it's a weird personality trait to have anyway such a weird job. But i mean how long did it take before we finally saw the middleton ball handle jonah stuff where you're so freaked out about yoenis is the roll man. That middleton has a lot of room and that's what won the game tonight. Has sometimes i wonder if the coaches saving it to the last second or the last quarter though like when they really need it like. I don't wanna do all four quarters. But i'm gonna break this out when i really need it all right so russillo likes to sons in game five. Vote with fan. Does sportsbook if you do win. Get your money's lap.

Oh, one Baylor University. You're welcome. You got a finance degree from them. And once again, you're wearing it proudly. Alright. Next pretty topic. President Trump has announced that he will be at the border where Texas governor Greg Abbott on June 30th. He is currently slamming the bite and Harris administration for refusing to visit. Okay, Well, they don't have the guts. Well, no, they don't. They want to go down there and be a part of that disaster that I will say. In this day and age and this goes across the board does it? Does it really matter or do anything? If the guy shows up, it doesn't It doesn't matter if it's a hurricane disaster. I understand what you want to show. All right. It doesn't actually do anything. You probably were in high school when this took place, maybe all right. Rick Perry's governor. And border was a big deal back in. Oh, five. Oh, six because you had people out waving, you know, middle? Yeah. Mexican flags and Central American flags protesting their rights is illegal aliens. And people were just saying Are you effing kidding me? You want right? You're not even supposed to be. Pack your crack it. Get the hell out. So Rick Perry being governor, sensing That there's an issue here decides to put in a camera system on the Internet. And there are lots of pictures of him at the border wearing wearing the cowboy boots and the and the big belt buckle in the genes and that kind of thing, big hat on something he never wears. No. You were to suit all the time unless he's shooting a commercial. And So we used to tune in to the Internet camera, which, honestly that technology back then was kind of primitive, But we would look at nothing but brush land. What you were supposed to do is if you see somebody crossing immediately type in a report, which went to a computer at the capital that nobody ever checked, it was like a dead end. It was all for show and the day after he got reelected. It was gone. The whole thing was gone, so I am correct. When they go down there. Nothing changed. It's a visual and I understand the visual. I get it. People want to know Or at least believe that you're on the job. What do you think Politics is really playing checkers right now and that even the majority people Know that it doesn't do any good to me. It's just like the media. This is what they feel like. They have to say This is a This is a governor Abbott tying himself to Mr Trump correct because he he agreed with Trump policy. The Trump policies were effective and and a great many ways, much more so than previous policies in any administration. And he wants to tie himself to that, and he wanted to. He watched the juxtaposition. We're here. This man is not even in office anymore, and he's concerned. These people are supposed to be in charge of it, and they don't care. And that's what the idea but what I'm arguing is if the media didn't ask him. Or ask them. Why aren't you at the border? Yeah, I don't think the majority of Americans truly care. The majority of Americans you're right. Probably wouldn't even think of no because they're worried about I just want lower taxes or I want whatever they think that everybody who's worried about the borders. Just racist. Yes. So that's that. You can't You can't talk to people. But even people care about the border. I just don't think that they're like Boy. When he gets down there, he's really going to clean up shop, and I don't think they would think that about Trump either. I just think this is one of those things. Where the you're the low guy on the totem pole for CNN. It's your time to ask a question. You've heard these type of questions asked a million times. Bush. Why weren't you there? Clinton? Why weren't you there? Okay. Here we go. Why aren't you there? And that's where we are. Yeah, well, that's not. I don't disagree with that. I think that's probably right. So smart. Well, I told you before that you live anywhere else in the country outside of a border state. Nobody thinks about the border. And once again, they think if you're worried about the border and illegal immigration, you just don't like brown people. Yeah, no idiot. I don't like The population of Central America showing up at my door asking what's the direction to the 7 11? I don't want that. That's a bad thing. But that's the selfish nature of it, and I think people just I know on the border. They like to see action being done. That's trending topics coming up. Is there a worker shortage? Or is it a worker awakening? That is coming up next Bill Jackson's talking traffic.

"Why they haven't here. Thanks a lot for stopping by Now. For part two of my sit down with the 45th, president of the United States of America. Donald J. Trump. Let's talk about when when we first met face to face. You invited me to the White House in 2017. When the tax cut when the tax cuts and jobs act was being signed and being pushed. It was amazing what it did for the economy. We see Biden coming into office. 40. Plus, you know, Executive orders Day one or weak one where he undid what you did. That was right. He canceled 11,000 Keystone XL pipeline jobs. Day one He killed the economy Day one. When you see that happening as hard as you worked to get this stuff done in a bipartisan fashion you tried to anyway, although the Democrats don't want to play along what you got done for the economy and how it was booming, and now you see it today and Jimmy Carter's policies. Basically, you're back on steroids. What does that make you think? Was very sad and he canceled the final section of the wall. The wall was almost complete. It would have been complete within a matter of weeks, and he canceled it. So you have you? No openings in the wall took 2.5 years of litigation to win the right to build that wall. I ended up winning it and we started building it and we built almost 500 miles, but they canceled The final section of the wall. Now I hear they're going to build it again. But you know, it's a little hard to get it started. And I'll tell you that, you know contractors as well as I do joke, So it's gonna be very interesting, but s o much that they've done and now what they're going to do is put on massive tax increases. Put back regulations that I took off, which I actually think that The regulation aspect of the Trump Administration. We cut more nonsense and I much of it was absolute nonsense. We're all into the environment. We're all into all and safety and other things. But what they what they were putting forward made it impossible to do anything. So they want to now put regulations back. They want to raise taxes incredibly, and you could have inflation like you've never seen before, And it's gonna be a very scary time. It's gonna be. Plus, we're seeing people out of work. You sing a push for it for you Gonna send paychecks every month to every parent in the in America to every kid in America to basically stay at home. They're sending them too much unemployment as well. What do you think they're trying to do? Just have everybody reliant on the government. Well, people ask. Is it incompetence or is this what they're looking for? And I can't believe this is what they're looking for, like a the border. I can't believe they really want open borders. You know, it's not just the people coming through. It's the The criminals coming through. You have massive numbers of people coming out of jails. You have killers. You have murderers. You have rapists and you have so many human traffickers. And they traffic in women, mostly women. It is disgraceful. What's being allowed to come into our country? We created Joe the strongest border in the history of our country. It was only had to do was leave it alone didn't have to do anything. Thea other countries Mexico and Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador. They were all working with us and you know we have people coming from more than South America, Latin America. We have people coming in from Yemen. We have people coming in from the Middle East. It is disgraceful. What's going on? So we took the strongest border and within a period of four weeks, they made it the weakest we've ever had. Donald j. Trump dot com slash desk Go there and get his message is also the former president. Of course, the 45th president, United States Donald J. Trump on the program right now, when we talk about what you did in Israel, you actually kept to a campaign promise. And I often times Mr President. When I talk about you two other get other guests. I tell them, you know, he didn't realize that he could make campaign promises and not keep them. The man kept every promise that he made. You move the capital to Jerusalem, where the embassy to Jerusalem where it should have been to begin with, and you started making deals with you A in Bahrain. Real deals where Israel could co exist, and they would be recognized by the country's You see. A few months later, there are thousands of bombs being lobbed into Israel from Hamas, and we've got actual members of Congress, Mr President that are supporting them. What's going on? One of the biggest terms that I've seen in Congress is the hatred of Israel 10 years ago, Israel was like sacred territory to Congress. They wouldn't have said anything bad today. It's like It's almost they They've gone the opposite direction. Nobody would have believed it. You take a look at the statements that are being made by to leave and and Omar and AOC. You wouldn't believe it. You wouldn't believe it's possible because because you know was not a long time ago that Israel really was considered our great ally, great friends and we protect it is, you know it's stay opposite now in Congress, except when it came to me because I what I've done with Golan Heights with the capital of, you know. Capital being You take a look at what I did with the capital. I mean, I moved not only didn't move the embassy there, but I built it. I got it built. And we didn't build it for $2 billion we built it for like $500,000. Okay, You know that whole story, But the biggest thing I did was ending the Iran nuclear deal that was bigger than both of those things by a lot. And it's very sad to see what's going on, Verse said to see what's going on with Iran. Incredible. What's going on to Russia in Russia's dictating to buy did dictating what they do? He's approving the pipeline. I had that pipeline stopped and he's approving this pipeline, which goes into Europe. It goes into Germany. It's not even believable. What's going on in China, all of a sudden planes flying over Taiwan? It's a whole different ball game they would not have done it with. I appreciate your time, and I appreciate you coming on. I've had Rick Perry on I've had damn brew yet on these energy Secretary's did a great job and getting your policies forward where Ellen G was being sent was being sold to our friends in the EU instead of them getting it from Russia, where we became energy independent, we became a net exporter of energy. Mr President. Why would we ever have an administration? That would want us to go back to energy dependency on people that might not like us. I don't understand why they're making that move and to jump on what you just said. To give Iran back billions of dollars we had frozen that we know they're now help helping the fund Hezbollah and Hamas with our own money. It's like bizarro world. Why are they undoing this? Just to say Trump bad? There's no good reason to do these things. They're gonna give her on billions and billions of dollars..

Is it time Is it time for us to leave the union David Well, I believe it's time for a vote for the citizens of Texas and a couple of weeks ago, experts some time with the capital, Texas legislators, uh which is really Austin just a smaller version of D. C. We still have a swamp. Um, the Texas legislators air pretty much impotent. Um You know, I don't understand at all, especially the G O p and I'll give you A, for instance, Michael's You know, you never think that we we won elections because they keep a point in Democrats key chairmanship positions. Key leadership positions in the state Legislature. And the reason that excuse what I get from legislators is what? Well, you know that's been our You know our history. That's what we've done traditionally. Throughout Texas, and I'm like her. You guys really think that get the Democrats had had won the state Legislature they'd be giving you the same courtesy. I doubt it very seriously. So, um, the Legislature is if someone inept and, um, you know, we really don't have the conservatives and they're just cause they haven't are behind their name doesn't necessarily mean they're conservative, A zoo. We know that on the federal level, but it's also true in Austin. It is, And one thing we've seen from Austin's inability to get things done is the juxtaposition of that with Washington D. C. When Democrats get a majority They ram through their agenda. They do not wait around. They do not ask for consent. They do not care If you scream and cry, they do not extend mercy. They simply get done what they need to get done. The last Major legislative accomplishment was at the end of the first year of Donald Trump's term when Ted Cruz led the fight in the Senate. And the Tax Reform Act that led to unprecedented economic growth. But the last major piece of legislation before that was the Democrats under Obamacare, and we still can't overturn that. And they did that folks should remember. Within a year of being in office. They make hay while the sun shines. They go there to get something done. They get it done. They believe in it. Are folks campaign on issues that when they get there, tell us we can't have Because it would upset things and make everybody upset. We had folks that had the opportunity to repeal Obamacare and simply didn't do it. McCain voting it down, and this guy was our standard bearer. It's a joke. It is a joke, and we're also seeing that the Republicans have cheese. It had a chance to fix the immigration issues in heaven, 60. I mean, you know, God bless Trump. At least he did something by executive Order that you know there. It is still not fixed for the life of the most Texans. Michael can't understand why we just don't take matters into our own hands and Abbott. I mean, we could stop that border if we wanted to. And they're so afraid. You know, the government, the government and the politicians. You know, we send our money to D. C. It gets a 40% haircut and then we got a big for it to come back. Now the only I can guess is that you know there used to begging for that money to come back to Texas, so they're afraid to take things in your own hand. But you and I both know that Abbott if he really wanted to, you could shut down that border and we're just not doing it. I had dinner with one of the largest donors to politics in America about a month ago who happens to be a Texan. And I'm not going to say his name. He asked that I not on their fun. I will tell you that. He said that he had never seen a more useless Republican that Greg Abbott and he said, it took me years to realize that guy has absolutely no desire to accomplish anything. He just wants to be in office. He said. I've never seen anything like it said you know, you could dislike Rick Perry. If you wanted to you say whatever you want it, But when he got behind an issue, he worked to get it accomplished. You, said Abbott and you know, there's here's a great example. Constitutional. Kerry is percolating in the Legislature right now, Greg Abbott last week when asked if he was for or against constitutional. Carrie. That's permit list Carrie by every American by every Texan. Last week, he said. I don't know. Well, then, a few days later, it comes out of the house. The house votes for it. And the Senate doesn't have the votes to get it out. I know this because I've been following it and they know it's not going to pass through the Senate. Once he knew it wasn't going to pass. Then, Abbott said. I want that bill. I would sign it. If it came to me. It looks like it's not going to come to me. That is a classic John Cornyn trick. He waits around, and he hopes that somebody else will kill a bill and the moment it's killed. He'll jump up. So I was for that, By golly, you'll give me another term. That's the guy that has absolutely no desire to accomplish anything, I swear. We have so many Republicans in Texas Glenn Hager, Greg Abbott that are Republicans John Cornyn. That's what we would have gotten if we'd sent Dewhurst to D. C instead of Ted Cruz. The reason Trump got elected is because of all these folks like Glenn Hagar, Uh Greg Abbott. John Cornyn. Republicans George P. Bush. Republicans who show up at your parade and lead the prayer and wave the flag, and they get elected, and they don't want to do. Anything. That's why they hate Trump. That's why they hate cruise because he makes him look bad. This'll is good..

"27 Dan mandates in for Rick Roberts, I I love this. Maybe My favorite quote of the day, and it is from Rick Perry. If you're gonna parrot this line that we've got to do things to help the climate out, for God's sakes, man, get off your private jet and and go travel with the rest of the folks out there If you're gonna move around Oh, yes, that is a Rick Perry. Speaking about John Kerry. John Kerry is a pretty poor spokesperson for the climate business when he hops on his private jet and leaves a trail of emissions. It's about 40 times more than what it would be if he flew first class on a, you know, United Airline going somewhere. American Airlines one of our great airlines matter fact, they probably need the work right now. Well, he's absolutely right now. There's story out of the New York Post. Listen to this Now. Everybody knows the Story with John Kerry, right? So he is Biden's what climate czar. And he's also a new, incredible hypocrite. John Kerry is because, as he's flying around the world in his I think the holiday a Gulfstream jet or whatever it is. 40 times more carbon than any other airplane. That is a commercial airplane, so these things, they just they admit a lot of carbon and there's no other way to say it. And so clearly, John Kerry is someone who is not walking the walk. And so that became a very big issue over the last couple of days, and that's what Rick Perry's talking about where you have carry for years. He's been flying this Gulfstream jet. And for years he has been doing a lot of damage to the environment. While he's supposedly some sort of a a climate, you know, lover, environmentalists and all of these other things. And so now, Biden is called this guy Acclimates are but the optics are terrible. There's no other way to say it. You know John Kerry part of the problem, and he said, Remember a couple of days ago. I think this was actually last week when he said something to the effect of well, you know, if you're somebody who was working in the oil and gas industry well, you could just go work on a on solar panels. You know there's other options for you. I mean, sure, Maybe you've spent your entire adult life working in the oil and gas industry. But what we're going to go ahead and do is we're gonna go ahead and literally shut down your industry. We're going to eliminate hundreds of thousands of jobs, and we're going to not be energy independent any longer, and I'm going to just fly around in my Gulfstream jet and talk about how what we need to save the environment. You know, it's just it is bad optics. And so when you know Rick Perry comes out, and he says, Yeah, you know what? John Kerry. You need to get off your plane. You need to get off your jet and fly with all the regular folks. But I think that we all know that John Kerry is clearly not a quarter quote regular folk, especially flying around on his private jet. That emits all kinds of carbon president. This is from the New York Post now because the question always has to be asked. Okay, so How can you defend John Kerry? How can you defend You know, calling yourself an environmentalist and telling people that they need to reduce their carbon footprint while you yourself are flying around in a gas guzzling private jet. While you're telling everybody else you don't worry about losing your job. Don't worry about losing your career. Don't worry about losing your income because you know what's all for the greater good. John Kerry says. So then the question is asked. Okay, So you're telling everyone else John how to live their lives? And don't worry about losing your career because it is all for the greater good While you're flying around the world in your gas guzzling private jet, and by the way, it's not only John Kerry I mean, they always have these these, you know, climate conventions in all this where you have all of these, really, You know, important people and putting the word important in air quotes all of these really important people from you know, Hollywood and these politicians and they're out there and they're saying Oh, yeah, we need to. We need to save the trees. We need to save the environment. Well, they're all flying on their private jets. You know, sometimes in in Los Angeles in California, I bet that's the same thing in New York. Maybe Washington D C as well where you have all of these private jets. And you've got all these Hollywood types, and they're literally flying their private jets to the same city. And maybe you've got you know Leonardo DiCaprio in one private jet, and then you've got. I don't know some other person Steven Spielberg in another private jet, and they're leaving at the same time from the same airport and they're going to the same place. They didn't think that maybe they could. Oh, I don't know, playing pool like carpool, but played pool. You know what I mean? These people like John Kerry and Leonardo DiCaprio and Joe Biden and Kamila Harris. They believe that they are better than you. And the rules don't apply to them. This is from the New York Post. President Biden's new climate czar, John Kerry took a gas guzzling private jet to collect a climate change leadership in Iceland. It was a leadership award in Iceland in 2019, defending his mode of transport as The only choice For someone. Like me. Yeah, That's John Kerry, Man of the people. The former secretary of state who is now Biden's climate change on void, defended his decidedly unread choice of transportation. When criticized by local media and The Arctic Circle Award organizer's arrogantly claiming He had no other option. He says. If you offset your carbon, it's the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle, Kerry said in an interview with local outlet are you V? Unearthed by Fox News earlier today. He says. I negotiated the Paris accords for the United States. I've been involved in this fight. For years. I negotiated with President G to bring president G to the table so we could get Paris, he said. Well, by the way, China is not listening to you, John. I know you think that China is doing everything they can to to stop destroying the world with all of their pollution. But there's simply not And so carries out there, you know, taking all of this credit for bringing China to the table. China is laughing at you behind your actually, They're laughing in front of you, actually, to John Kerry. So I got to tell you that the more that we find out about the president's climate czar, the worse it looks. And at least for me, As we see the hypocrisy of the left. It is clearly in full display here is more from Rick Perry, by the way. And the idea that he can so parsimonious Lee step, sit there and say, Well, they couldn't go get a job over in the solar panel. Business way Most those folks Along That pipeline can't relocate to China because that's where most of those solar panels are being constructed. Yeah, Rick Perry. I've always liked group. I know there's some people don't like repairing. I do like him for a lot of different reasons. By the way, Senator John Kennedy from Louisiana, and he started speaking about the job loss that John Kerry essentially is advocating for along with Joe Biden. And it's all about the war on oil and gas and how it is going to hurt America. They are immeasurably foolish. You go. They're gonna gut Louisiana like a fish. One third of my state's GDP is related to all the gas. Our state is not alone. His war on all on gas is going to hurt America. Yep. It's gonna destroy our energy independence. Yep. And by all means, let's make of you. I'm sure you know this, but so you know who we are making stronger as we weaken America, right? Our enemies. We are making Russia stronger by decreasing. Our outpoint are out output of oil and gas. We are making Russia stronger. We're making Iran stronger. We're making Venezuela stronger. Why are we doing this? We can't run the greatest economy and all of human history without a woman gas. Not now and not probably for a long time. I don't know about you trade, but my car doesn't run off fairy dust. My car doesn't run off. Unicorn, urine, ego. And and I think once again, President Biden has given in until the left wing crazies. Well, you know what I think Biden has given into the left wing crazies. But I also believe that he is one of those left wing crazies.

The Thinking Atheist
The Brainwashing of my Dad (with documentary filmmaker Jen Senko)
"My mother thinks that rush limbaugh. Yoda you know what? Saying? She's always saying well, rush limbaugh says. Our rush had a great monologue. It was just on point. Oh it's he so tuned into the Culture Rush Limbaugh g listen to rush limbaugh the other day and of course I know I don't listen to rush limbaugh. I did fifteen years ago. You know I was a Ditto head actually read for you a chapter about right wing radio on the broadcast I read it out of my book couple of weeks ago. But I wanted to come back to this because I feel like it's Really been on my mind and it's hugely relevant in today's culture. We've got a whole group this graphic of these pulpit pounding Bible Banging, rush, limbaugh right, Wing Radio Listening Evangelical 's right the Christian Nationalists and they're screaming the name of God is they use their religion just to be Shitty to other people. May I've noticed that about a lot of these guys limbaugh Michael Savage, etc. they're just nasty people. They are always being cruel to other people there pushing buttons because they can. They're stoking the fires of outrage and they sit back and bask in the ratings and the advertising dollars and. All the way to the bank. There's this I think it's a myth that rush limbaugh is himself a Christian. I. Know He likes to speak the language of Christianity. I'm not convinced the Guy Cares at all about the Bible or religion of any kind and back I'd love to sit them down and give him like a sixty second Bible quiz just to see how much he really in fact I'd like to sit most the evangelical 's in power. Donald. Trump I'd like to give him a Bible quiz. Let's just sit down and let me quiz you for a couple minutes. Betsy Devos loved to talk to her Ben Carson Rick, Perry all these people in government are banging their. Bibles I would love to sit them down and asked him basic questions about their faith. But that's a whole other conversation. Today's conversation is with the director and producer of a film called the brainwashing of my dad, an ambassador father who SORTA got sucked in to this rush limbaugh right-wing Radio Christian, nation, kind of narrative focusing at the very least and narrative that sort of others, non-christians, sort of sets them off in their own little box while the moral righteous people are sitting over here. Now, the film itself is not new. It's been out for a few years but I referenced it in my book and I just it's been on my mind because. There is so much of this going on and right-wing radio. I don't think it's ever been more popular. There's video of this conversation. I am going to play some clips from the documentary during the broadcast. These clips add a few extra layers. So you can kind of hear the angle that she's taking Gen Sankoh Director of the documentary film, The brainwashing of my dad. So glad you're here. Hi Seth, it's nice to be here. Give me like a resume real fast the types of work that you've done before the brainwashing my dad. Sure. Will I started out as an artist and a painter? But then I felt like I wanted to reach a wider audience and I just started making films but they were always sociopolitical. The Sue. The first one was roadmap warrior women about really independent women that I met out west and then the second was was. co-director with fury derosa the vanishing city. About the lecture vacation of New York City. But also how it's happening throughout the world and cities coming less affordable and right now I'm writing a book. Also called the brainwashing of my dad. Got Picked up by source books so I can always tell you more. Fun, I mean. Let's go back to your dad. You didn't grow walk in this sort of right wing I mean I know limbaugh started back in the eighties but I mean, you didn't come from that sort of hardcore conservatism. nope. Not at all my parents were what I guess. I would describe as very liberal, very open minded. They were Kennedy Democrats and they were also like FDR Democrats they came from the depression. So FDR them was a hero who pull them out of the depression they most remembered hoover and felt like he didn't do anything but they were really enthusiastic about. And I think they were quite devastated. When he was assassinated. But yeah, they were they were I would actually list describe them as hippies before hippies same. We're very open minded My Dad especially loved talking all different kinds of people very non judgmental. As you probably saw the film, you know one time in this is in the sixties. We came out and port. Authority. We're visiting New York. For the day and there was a a black homeless man and she US Monday for some money my dad called him Sir had a conversation with them. And gave them like a couple of coins or two, but you know so they kind of thing made an impression on me that. You know accept all people and jobs. You know he wasn't for they were judgmental national change later.
The Book Review
From the Archive: Michael Lewis and Tana French
"Michael thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. So you've covered very exciting topics before. Wall Street is exciting. Sports is exciting. The Department of Agriculture is not generally considered exciting. How did you decide to to turn to this? So it wouldn't have been exciting before trump. I think trump electrified all the material. So what happened. Several things at once happened. I just finished a book about Danny. Common name is diversity to Israeli psychologist who Study the way people Miss Miss Value. Risk price risk and one of their insights. Was that if you take a catastrophic risks. I mean it's like a one in a million chance of happening and and make it a one in ten thousand still very remote increase the likelihood one hundred times people don't feel it and I had this sense. When trump was elected in the way he was approaching governing that he was he was doing that across a big portfolio of risks that. I thought that the one way to think of the federal government is a manager of giant portfolio of risks many of them catastrophic and that people weren't feeling it exactly. I was doing on this in about how to write about it when he made Rick Perry the Secretary of Energy of Course Rick. Perry had said that he thought the Department of you should be eliminated when he was on stage in a debate but he couldn't remember even the name of the place and once he collided with it he realised. Oh maybe it shouldn't be eliminated because the departmental has nuclear weapons in inside of it and I thought well maybe this is the this is the way maybe actually kind of want follow it follow ric currency what it means for. Rick Perry to be running this place and then somewhere in all this. I learned that the Obama Administration partly because they're required to by law partly because Obama was a responsible person had essentially Had BEEN AT WORK. For a year to create these briefings for the whoever was gonNA roll into the federal government and run it and there was a there have been thousand thousand people across across the government who had spent the better part of a year creating these briefing books thinking about how to present the government to someone who didn't know anything about it and these briefings were supposed to happen the day after the election. I mean they're gonNa roll and that's what happened. When Obama rolled in to replace Bush and the trump people hadn't shown up at all so then I had a hook but now I do too in the hook was I'm GonNa go get the briefings. Briefings and trump people never bothered to get and kind of learn about this portfolio of risk and try to get a sense of what we should be worried about why that was the start and then you ended up covering not just the Department of Energy but also the Department of Commerce and the Department of Agriculture. You know I had a selection problem that reminded me a bit of the selection problem. I had with the big short and the big short there was a pool of kind of fifteen Wall Street guys who had seen the crisis coming or thought they'd seen it coming and made a fortune betting on the collapse of either Wall Street or the housing market and I wandered around a long time on a casting. Search figure out which ones were the best to tell the story through. Who are the other contenders? There were a lot of them. I mean they were. They were hundreds of them but they were fifteen of them and and all were willing to let me write about him. It was just who could kind of teach the reader the most important things what was the best way to dramatize this. And in this case I had actually fifteen cabinet level positions fifteen departments to choose from and I had a narrow down. I couldn't do the federal government. I wasn't gonNA keep the reader for more than a couple of hundred pages. I knew right away it was going to be three or four and I thought I had some criteria I thought one. It's gotta be something that I suspect. Most readers have no idea what it does and I just. I would just market test this. I'd be at a dinner party and say they might tell me what the Department of Commerce does and nobody had any idea that half the budget went to weather collecting weather data. You know or in the department energy most people didn't like Rick. Perry as opposed to the Treasury Department of the State Department of people have some vague idea. What does it? I wanted to be out of the public eye because I thought among other things I think. The risks are greater when public not watching the trump administration and finally. I thought they started to be very important so the Department of Education. I mean it's nothing's not important in the federal government but some of it's more important than than others so i. I spent time in most of the departments. I mean are talked to people from most departments and eliminated things along the way and then figured these are the three I wanted to do. Having said that I mourn not having written about the State Department and more not having read about the Department of the Interior. I think you could drop a writer into any one of these places and he would come away with a really. There's a wonderful stories to tell I mean. The Department of Education Is One. That's been written about a lot because of that. The high profile of the appointee to a lesser extent repairing sort of when he came in there was a flurry of attention and then kind of died away. So what is Rick Perry doing at the Department of Energy and what the Department of Energy supposed to be doing? It's a really good question what he is doing what. I dipped out of this story. I mean the last time I interviewed someone at the department injuries. Maybe six months ago and what I'm told. Is he set himself up as a kind of cheerleader ceremonial head of with the. Who isn't all that interested in the place? So you seem tweet a lot about it but we never got the briefings presumably. I know more about it than he does. Because I sat down with people had them walk me through the whole department. Maybe by now. He's accumulated some information. But what does it do? It's a vast science project what it is and part of the science project is tending to testing assembling nuclear weapons. That that's a big part of the budget. Another big part of the budget is cleaning up nuclear. Waste their sites in this country. And you wouldn't believe it. It's sort of like green type. Post-apocalyptic PLACES PAN for Washington. The Department of Defense three billion dollars a year trying to clean up the remains of the plutonium factories that that generated the atom bombs for World War. Two you ask the people in the department energy to give you an honest estimate how long it's GonNa take to to clean the place up hundred years one hundred billion dollars. I mean that's not trivial. And and what is at stake is there is a giant plume underground of of nuclear waste. That's slowly drifting towards the Columbia River which is not that far away said up on the Columbia River because they need the water to cool the it was there for a reason but if it leaches into the Columbia River. It's a catastrophe the for the Pacific northwest and it's managed in a very short term way. Things happen there. That are very alarming but does that predate trump or is it always been managed in a short term way although trump was the trigger for my story and trump is by far the most negligent manager of the federal government. We've had my lifetime Fisher probably forever. I never thought of his story. Just about trump. I thought of it. A story about the narrative we have created has poisoned or at Lea- screwed up the relationship between the society and government. That that this whole notion that the government is filled with lazy stupid. Bureaucrats who were kind of dead weight on society is a really dumb story. It's not true story. Department energy actually illustrates this. There is within the Department of Energy and his science project a seventy billion dollar loan portfolio and a few hundred million dollar venture capital fund. That is responsible for the entire. Solar power industry is responsible for Tesla. The first that were given to Tesla it is. It's it's the only place where dollars will be allocated to long term innovation. Industry doesn't do this if you she track back. Where the the innovations that led to the current American economy came from almost always it started with a government some government investment the Internet. The iphone wouldn't wouldn't exist without govern investment. When I think about the government I think of it as this. This exquisitely important exquisitely complicated machine that. We've let rust for decades telling ourselves a story that we need to basically just kick it every now and then it keep it from being too lazy and this guys come along and got sledgehammer. Trump has come along and he's getting this is getting you. He's going to do really mortal damage to it all right. So here's a short term thinking way of looking at this if you have things like nuclear cleanup. That are one hundred year. One hundred billion dollar projects is this potentially four year maybe eight year term of neglect. Kind of benign neglect. Because it's just GonNa it's all moving so slowly anyway or is he actively doing something in these departments. That is making it far worse. We have to worry. I think we have to worry a lot in. That's not me saying there's there are people who were kind of professional watchers of the federal government who are independent reps of the situation and then they're terrified for a few reasons. One is just the people who were in the federal government in the first year. The trump administration twenty percent of the top six thousand managers in the government civil service senior executive types left Biz. A hollowing out of the talent. And there's real talent there. These are not trivial. People people who were there in a lot of people federal government could be being paid a lot more money in the private sector and they've been drawn to some mission whether it's school nutrition or tending the nuclear arsenal or the weather service. They're there because they love the mission in because they know how important job is and we've mistreated those people for a long time. But now the level of mistreatment got very high and the dispersion of those people is a problem but then there are lots of things that are not so long term. I mean the trump budgets zeroed out both the loan program and the investments in the Department Energy Department of Agriculture Department. Agriculture has a three billion dollar research. Budget typically always overseen by a scientist and agricultural scientist. And if you talk to the woman who previously occupied the place Kathy Woteki a re a one a distinguished agricultural scientists who've been in government. Thirty years really knows what she's doing. She's all of his budget right. Now is one way or another being directed to research tied to climate. Change that we're to feed ourselves we're GONNA have to think differently. Be where how and where we grey sheep and cows and grow wheat and the climate change and have a big effect on the food supply trump appointed to this job right wing talk show radio host from Iowa who happened to support who knew who has no science background whatsoever named Sam Clovis now he has recently been removed from consideration. And there's nobody on his anybody in the job right now but the neglect of investment right now in the government will have consequences down the road. The bright spot is make it so bad and this is the point of the book. It make it so bad that people may wake up and we'll have a different narrative about our government.
Breaking Down Bloomberg's First Debate
"Up on today's podcast. The ninth and possibly the liveliest democratic debate in Las Vegas. This was the first debate performance for Michael Bloomberg and the other candidates came out swinging. I like to talk about who were running against a billionaire who calls women fat broads and horseface lesbians and no. I'm not talking about Donald Trump. I'm talking about Mayor Bloomberg. It was also the first chance for Bloomberg to respond to criticism on the public stage. Here's an exchange with Senator Elizabeth Warren as she pressed him to release women employees from nondisclosure agreements that prevent them from talking about sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace. I hope you heard what is defense was. I've been nice to some women. The mayor has to stand on his record and what we need to know. Exactly what's lurking out there? He has gotten some number of women. Dozens who knows to sign nondisclosure agreements. Both for sexual harassment and for gender discrimination in the workplace. So Mr Are you willing to release all of those women from those nondisclosure agreements? So we can hear their side of the story. We have a very few nondisclosure agreements. How many finish. How many of them accused me of doing anything? Other than maybe. They didn't like joke. I told and let me let me play agreements between two parties. That wanted to keep it quiet and that's up to them. They signed those agreements and we'll live with taxes you know from all sides and just want to show everybody a quick exchange between Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg believed it Democratic Socialists. Working People not billion as healthcare for all educational opportunities. Chopstick we have the best known socialists. In the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. But I miss here. Well you'll still work in Washington housewives. The first problem live in Burlington House too. That's good and like thousands of other Vermont. Subba cap to give me for that whereas your home which talks which tax haven New York New York City. Thank you very much on my taxes. And I'm happy to do it because I get something for. Bloomberg also drew negative reaction from the audience for his comments on releasing his tax retur variously transparency Mayor Bloomberg. Your campaign has said that he would eventually release your tax records when it comes to transparency but people are already voting now why should Democratic voters have to wait? It just takes us a long time unfortunately or fortunately fortunately I make a lot of money and we business all around the world and we are preparing. The number of pages will probably be the thousands of pages. I can't go to turbo tax but I put up my tax return every year for twelve years in City Hall. We will put out this one. It says tells everybody everything they need to know about every investments that I make and where the money goes and the biggest item is all the money I give away and we list that every single donation I make and you can get that from our from our foundation anytime you want. And this was Bloomberg's response to whether he supported Senator Bernie Sanders proposal. That would require all large companies to turn over up to twenty percent of their ownership to employees overtime absolutely not. I can't think of a ways that would make it easier for Donald Trump to get reelected and listening to this conversation ridiculous. We're not going to throw out capitalism. We tried that other countries tried that was called Communism and it just didn't work again. That was an answer that actually agreed with. There was some people who said that's not the answer you given a Democratic primary. That it's an answer you would give if you were in the actual campaign against president trump but that was the one that really resonated with me with. Yeah okay. Honest answer on that part of Ari Fleischer on twitter last night tweet aways going on saying that. He couldn't fathom how the whole Party that nobody in the party when they're asking their capitalism everybody's there with the exception maybe of Mayor Bloomberg I think Amy Klobuchar also said that she was a capitalist of believe in capitalism. But you know you know how everybody gone mad that this is just not what it is but by the way I mean Look Bernie. Sanders calls himself a socialist. Whether it's a democratic socialist or whatever you WANNA call the it's strange led a little bit of circa firing squad feel for me or someone said a gun fight in a lifeboat or something like that. But but what what I'm coming to realize is that Bernie is in the stage. Yep He's got grassroots. He Does Sport. And these people are gonNA turn out and if he just keeps winning and winning and winning. I don't know what you do. There's a difference between the democratic establishment and millions of of Democrats. That are voting for him. And you can't just say no. We don't like the way this looks so we don't like our prospect and who knows what the prospects really are. You never knew. He may have some people think he might one four years ago if he so. I've always been a Bernie Bro and BRO now. Well no Birdie Bro. If I had to pick I'm not sure at this point I immediately came in and I said to you this morning. What else you got sick Bernie because you think that makes it better or ascribe any type of weird and just let's is beyond her hand in a while snow but seriously that's the sixty came up. You got anything got anybody else you got it. We're shoulders Howard Schultz. Is he done? He's definitely divall Patrick and he come back and Bloomberg's campaign seemed to acknowledge his difficulty with this last night. I think he got better at the end to answer at the end was a fairly strong answer. His campaign said he's just warming. I mean the. What's the the reason the night? By the way do you know Neil Patel? We've had on the program. The rights that that Bloomberg is the gap that Bloomberg's performance the gap between an influence or marketing campaign and putting an actual product in front of reviewers. And I thought that captured beautifully Ashley happening here and I think it is online he. He's you know if you had sixty billion dollars you really do start thinking that you just might us man and when it comes to the woman whatever you want to say it but when it comes down when when the rubber meets the road you really do have to debate and you need to be good and fast and strong and all those things none of which and I started feeling. Sorry for he did. Have everybody coming after is not something we really happy. Start Feeling. Sorry for him. But there's an old adage in its most Jewish things don't ever feel sorry for someone has a Gulfstream jet. You just never never feel sorry for someone who has a g six V you just. Shouldn't I mean there could be things that happened? They can always fall. But you still felt sorry for. It'd be because as you know and I've said it a million times. Maybe he's not a great debater isn't clearly but if you look at what? I what he did in the city in the public sector and then the private sector. We're different we're different on what we think is competent and a nanny. State to me is competent. Well no no. Other major initiatives took it was. Well run under Giuliani to look at him now than in your eyes. I mean you think he's like a lunatic. Look let's just leave it at Bernie Bro- stick with that. He's in the center. He's at fifty eight percent. Something on League dictums on CNBC earlier. This week I don't know if it was yesterday the day before and I guess. He said that he thinks. Bernie Sanders bigger threat to the markets. Then they'd run a virus and your lights night's performance. You wonder if there's anybody who's GonNa stop along the way but the market and took the Marlboros. Go UP THE STRONGER. He gets because he's a could be another McGovern. I'm not I'm not coming out of my no. Well we know what you think but put the markets aside. Let's Talk Real Economy Bernie Sanders. Wins Your CEO in America. You're see on America's because this to me is really to one thing Mike Bloomberg was right about okay. Bernie can't win but no I'm saying if Bernie wins I think that every ceiling American not to Bernie San monkeys flat out of my reread to leave the set. Look by the way people can carry where he says the same thing trump right and even even two months before he won. People would don't really you don't really think that's the same thing. No I'm not saying it's health your honest opinion of what is Bernie's if you had to bet all your money on what. What are his chances for winning? Is it twenty five percent? Do you think it's that high winning? In general winning in the general we in the journey and the general third no more than you think a third see. I think that's I don't think it's a third what was weird less gets overwhelming at all. No I think it's I think in becomes very what would there have to be more. I don't know what would happen. He'd have to be the nominee and something else anyway. Joining us right now with reaction to last night's debate pollster and political strategist frank. Bunce FRANK WANNA get your action to all of this. I think the whole night was challenging moment. I WANNA take you back to two thousand twelve when Rick. Perry was moving three or four points a week in the race against Mitt Romney. He participates in the first debate. And he's destroyed and it ends his candidacy. I think Mike Bloomberg we will look back at this debate potentially as the beginning of the end because he did not come across as prepared and more importantly I don't think captured the tone of the audience that he doesn't understand that there are more women than men who are Democrats that they don't like this Aggressive behavior and I don't think in Blooberg defense of capitalism against socialism. He doesn't realize that. So many Democrats prioritize socialism over Frank. I WanNa ask you about the preparedness issue. Because he I know we'll say he only got into this campaign ten ten weeks ago but he's been preparing for this for a very very long time. How could he not have been more prepared? Well and what were the right answers to some of these questions? Well I so I want viewers to know that I did work for Bloomberg in two thousand one and back then. He doesn't like language. He doesn't like debates he doesn't like that. Kinda give and take that's not what he's about. The problem is it's what the Democrats are about and he should've known that these candidates who are going to take him on frankly. I don't know what the response is for the challenge about the nondisclosure agreements in terms of capitalism vs socialism. He's GonNa Remember. You should know that. The average Democrat is working class. The average Democrat is middle income and having a capitalism vs socialism debate among the average Democrat. Bloomberg's GonNa lose that and Bernie Sanders and the reason why is leading right now is going to win that contest. Frank do you believe Bloomberg will follow through on his promise to spend another half a billion dollars defeating Donald Trump on one of these people that just you know completely eviscerated him last night. Have you think once he realized you just said maybe it's the beginning of the end of his candidacy? He sees it. He's not going to be the candidate. Will he follow through and spend another four or five hundred million dollars on somebody else well? He's not done because we still have a South Carolina debate coming up and Super Tuesday. If you look at the state by state polling Bloomberg is actually taken the lead in some of these states doesn't if you said that it's probably the beginning of the end it was. Do you believe he will follow through and spend his money to defeat? Donald Trump by backing Bernie sanders or the eventual nominee is. Do you believe he'll do? I think Mike Bloomberg will have a problem backing Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren because he simply disagrees with them ideologically on their economic last night's performance by Elizabeth. Warren puts her back in the game in a way that she might not have been just Twenty four hours ago. I'm going to surprise you but my answer is no because I don't like Democrats attacking Democrats they want you to focus on donald trump but that's what Bernie Sanders has been doing so successfully and he seems to be the runner. And that's exactly. Why is the Front runner and Elizabeth Warren Attacking Buddha judge as well as Bloomberg? I don't think that sits well with the average Democrat. I'm will tell you know. Sandra has been attacking his his competitors in this race. No He's been speaking clearly and loudly and pronounce way in a position that for the center of the Democratic Party. And they like what he's saying and he is going to trump more than the rest of them I think last night was a good good debate night for Sanders because he clearly articulated a point of view that none of you may agree with but for the center of the Democratic Party. Remember this is not the center of America for the center of the Democratic Party Bernie. Sanders speaks to them. He's emotional he's passionate and it's the reason why he's now the front runner and what we got to run but what happens if if he is the nominee against trump given what you know given what okay. What are your odds for the first time ever ever on a TV program? I will say that trump will have the narrowest of advantages narrowest inch. Yes that's all that's all this going to be a brawl. It's going to be ugly selection ever and even though centers outside the mainstream the press will protect him. The media does not want trump elected. It will come down to election day. Okay Frank clots with an interesting perspective. Great to see this morning. Thank you thank

Fifty one forty nine on a near Party line vote. Republican Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of UTAH. voted along with the Democrats witnesses. But that was not enough despite the Democrats singular focus on hearing you testimony. The Republican majority brush. Pass those demands to make this the first impeachment trial without witnesses even new revelations from former National Security Adviser John Bolton did not not swayed.

Pence to focus on US Iran policy in speech
"The increasingly intriguing question of what did the vice president know. And when did he we know it. Yes the vice president. In the midst of this very high stakes increasingly scary escalation between N- The US government and the nation of Iran were millions of people filled the streets today for the funeral of Qassem Soleimani was essentially seen as the second ranking official in that country. Second most powerful position in that country at least Soleimani was killed in the US air strike last week today. The trump administration announced. What's that they will soon have a public explanation for? What exactly they're doing? And what exactly they're thinking when it comes to Iran but the whole idea. is in terms of explaining their actions and their strategy toward Iran in the wake of this targeted killing now. This explanation from the trump administration as to what their strategy is for Iran. This explanation from the administration is not gonNA come for another week or so and it will not be president trump who gives the country this explanation the critical matter of the utmost and deadliest urgency. They'RE GONNA put off this explanation about what's going on between the US and Iran until next week and it's going to be vice president Mike Pence who gives the speech that is supposed to lay out. US policy toward Iran. And what exactly is going on. And what the strategic not gic thinking was behind this killing of this incredibly revered figure inside Iran why they think the country should wait a a week to get that explanation why it should be vice president. Mike Pence who gives that explanation to US rather than the president himself that remains to be seen. But if the the idea is that there might be less impeachment baggage trailing around after Vice President Mike Pence than there is after president trump and therefore maybe vice president pence might have of a sort of cleaner shot at this issue in the public's mind well maybe that's not true. The question of Vice President Mike Pence is Owned implication in the impeachment scandal is both unresolved and that was sort of back on the front burner. It has been nineteen days since the House voted to impeach president trump for trying to get Ukraine to help him out against Joe Biden for the two thousand twenty election. He wanted announcement from Ukraine that they had Biden under investigation. Impeachment inquiry also found that president trump pressured Ukraine to do that to make that announcement about those investigations by making contingent tinge on the announcement of those investigations. A whole bunch of things that Ukraine wanted including a White House visit for their new president. The impeachment inquiry also found that president trump held up military aid to Ukraine for months while he pressured them to do this domestic political favor for him. I honestly can't believe it's only been one thousand nine days Since the house impeach trump doesn't feel like it's been nineteen months it's been nineteen days and in that brief period in the less than three weeks weeks it has been since he got impeached. We've continued to get new evidence and new information about the scheme for which the president was impeached including a reported communication from the Office of Management and Budget in the White House to a Pentagon official in which the White House official assured. Dod It was president trump personally who was insisting on holding up Ukraine's military aid and a communication reported by Cape Brennan Adjust Security. That ownby official tells tells the Defense Department quote Clear Direction from Portis inning president of the United States to hold the Ukraine aid since the the House vote to impeach president trump. We've also seen new evidence in new documentation of this intense conflict and intense concern within the administration shen that president trump ordering a hold on that military aid to Ukraine was in fact illegal. So here for example is that same defense official who just assured by the the White House that the money was being withheld on direct orders from the president. Here's that same defense official writing thereafter to the office of the Secretary of Defense to the Defense Secretary's chief of staff she says quote do you believe dod is adequately protected from what may happen as the result of the Ukraine obligation. Pause as in. We all know this is illegal. Are we prepared for what's going to happen to us at the Defense Department here if we do this illegal thing that has been directly ordered by the president. So here's what's fascinating in response to that email which was sent from somebody in the Pentagon controller's office to the Defense Secretary's chief of staff are we adequately protected from what may happen as as a result of this right in response to that email to the defense secretary's chief of staff the Defense Secretary's Chief of staff writes back and he says this quote Ukrainian. PM speaks with the vice. President of the United States. Veep Otis on Tuesday. We expect the issue to get resolved that. Why do you expect the issue to be resolved that in fact the Tuesday following that email September first vice president and Mike Pence did meet with the leader of Ukraine? They met in Europe. They met in Warsaw. That's where we got this incredible footage of that room and who was there were you can see all of these people in that room whose careers have blown up and whose lives have changed a lot as a result the result of this scandal. You can see them all in the same shot. I mean in that meeting on the American side of the room. There's Energy Secretary Rick. Perry who of course suddenly submitted his resignation right right as the scandal broke open right next to him is national security adviser John Bolton who also suddenly submitted his resignation right as the scandal broke open right right next to the same row. There's ambassador Gordon Sunland. Who became a star witness in the impeachment inquiry testifying under oath that? Oh yes there was a quid pro quo and it was ordered by President trump. Just behind him in the second row there's Jennifer Williams who was the top Ukraine adviser to Vice President Pence who also became a star impeachment inquiry witness also in that same row. Tim Morrison the top Russia expert on the National Security Council who then himself suddenly announced his resignation on the eve of him also becoming an impeachment inquiry witness and next to him back there in the corner national security official named Earl Matthews who also so work on Ukraine issues who also suddenly left his post as this scandal broke open. I mean who's left within a few weeks of this meeting. In some cases within a few days of this meeting like everybody in that room had their life changed and or their career ended and and now we know from these internal administration documents and communications. That have been revealed in the one thousand nine days since the impeachment vote. We now know that after weeks. Six of freak out inside the administration over president trump holding up this military aid after president trump asking questions about that military aid after him directing the holdup up of the aid after him being advised by everybody in the national security apparatus that he himself appointed that he had to let go with hold on the military aid but he still refused to do so after all of the explicit arguments. We know that happened within the administration that to hold up that aid much longer would constitute a criminal act. We now know. I know that after all those weeks and months of consternation and conflict and concern and CYA inside the administration. We know right before vice president pence went and took this meeting at the highest levels of the Defense Department. The chief of staff to the Secretary of Defense was reassuring other officials inside the Pentagon. Oh don't worry. This is going to be over soon when Mike Pence takes that meeting was the Linski on Tuesday. It's all GonNa get sorted. Why do they think it was all going to get sorted? President trump was just impeached for demanding that Ukraine give him investigations into Joe Biden. That would help two minutes twenty twenty reelection effort and conveying to Ukraine. That they wouldn't get there. No much needed military aid until they made that commitment to do those investigations. So you won't get the military aid unless you agree to do those investigations announce publicly. You're doing those investigations are. You're never gonna see that military aid. We now know that in the defense secretaries office. They thought that that would all click into place as soon as this meeting between Mike Prints and the Ukrainian president took place so it was Mike Pence who was supposed to personally get the assurance from the Ukrainian government at that meeting that they were going to announce the investigations. Because that was the deal right. That's what everybody was waiting. They can't get the military aid until they announced the investigations. Don't worry they'll be able to get the military aid as soon as Mike Pence has that meeting. And that's what they were waiting on right at least according to the chief of staff to the Secretary of defense man man. Whose name is Eric Tuning? He put it in writing. Don't worry this will. All End. Wants Mike Pence takes that meeting. So says Eric Tuning Defense Secretaries Chief of Staff Eric. Tuning the defense secretary staff has just suddenly resigned his job his resignation announced today on the same day that former national security adviser John Bolton again is right there in the room for that meeting and again resigned suddenly without much explanation right right in the middle of the scandal right. As the Ukraine aid was finally being released and the whistleblower complaint was finally being processed and heading toward Congress John Bolton today released a statement saying if he is subpoenaed in the impeachment trial of president trump. He will appear and testify all the Senate is now back in accession. We don't yet know how the Senate is going to proceed with the impeachment trial for President Trump but obviously John Bolton's declaration that he will testify if summoned. He will will testify at the president's impeachment trial in the Senate if they send him a subpoena obviously raises the stakes on the Republican efforts in the Senate to try to a whole the impeachment trial without hearing from any witnesses

Despite Bankruptcy And Illness, Bob Murray Remains A Loud Voice For Coal
"Into Bob Murray's Corner Office in Saint Clair's Ville Ohio feels like stepping back in time. Mr Brady's here Murray wears dark suit jacket with a silk handkerchief poking out of the pocket he sits behind a large dark wood desk. Nice to meet to. Oh Murray returns eighty years old in January and his less steady on his feet than it used to be. He suffers from lung disease but says it's not related to years of working underground in coal minds. There's constant hissing sound in his office. That's the Oxygen Murray needs debris he says three hospitals have rejected him for a lung transplant. Because because of history of strokes not on my fighting for my own life. But I'm fighting for the life of my employees. My company Murray's is recent bankruptcy comes after a long career. He began as a minor then built his own company. Eventually with seven thousand employees. Natalie Biggs is a coal industry three analyst with Wood Mackenzie so a lot of coal companies had Undergone bankruptcy and around Twenty fifteen twenty sixteen and Murray was one of the ones sounds that actually kind of made it through that period and was able to purchase a lot of assets off the back of that or bankruptcy boom big says Murray energy took on debt as the the coal market continued to decline and bankruptcy. Murray says he'll lose ownership of his company. Some of his unionized workers may lose healthcare and pension benefits benefits and the filing is a political loss for president trump. We have ended the war on American energy and we have ended. Ah The war on beautiful. Clean Coal Bob. Murray has had the trump administration's ear. He drafted an action implant. Help coal than delivered it to Energy Secretary Rick Perry photos from the meeting. Show the two men hugging while trump rolled back some environmental regulations. On Murray's is list the administration was not able to deliver the subsidies for coal plants. That Murray wanted he argues that Cole. With fuel stored on site is more reliable. The a natural gas that's piped in and renewable energy that depends on the sun and wind still. Coal is losing market share to these cheaper and cleaner ways of generating being electricity murray argues that makes the electric grid less reliable. But all of a sudden one of these days you'll be hearing about on NPR about this power grid failure and people are going to become alarmed and all of a sudden they don't forget this nonsense called Climate Change Murray predicts that will come during a winter storm and that people will freeze to death. Frankly this is just a scare tactic. Tactic Marianne hit with the Sierra Club. Says there are smart. People running the country's power grids they take into account every coal plant closing and make sure the grid remains remains reliable. Empty promises about bailing out coal plants or reviving the fortunes of the coal industry are just distracting our country from from the real work we need to be doing hit. Says that is moving. The country away from coal and toward cleaner Renewable Energy Murray's climate denial and call boost booster. ISM are evidence of a key element of his personality once. He's concluded he's right about something Murray doesn't give in. Here's another example of that at twelve years ago Murray Energy made news for a tragic mind collapse in Utah that trapped six workers or singing my life I take it obviously to my grave. Demand were never located and ten days later. Three rescuers died as another section of the mine collapsed. A government report concluded there were flaws in the mind design. Murray's company was find more than a million dollars for safety violations yet even today Murray Denies Responsibility. A lot of blame being pointed in the end I was correct. It was an earthquake seismologists at the University of UTAH. Say say. That's just not true. The earthquake was the result of the mind collapsing even now as he struggles for breath just walking across the room. Murray is still oh pushing for what he believes. As company was preparing for bankruptcy Murray delivered a speech in West Virginia calling on federal regulators to subsidize coal. Aw and keep his industry alive.

Who Is John Eisenberg? Trump Lawyer Moved Ukraine Transcript to Classified Server After Vindman Complained
"And today house democrats have released transcripts of the testimony given by former US s. ambassador to ukraine maria vich and former state department official michael mckinley we will be following that but meanwhile a top lawyer for the national security council counsel john eisenberg is a no show today for a scheduled deposition on capitol hill to find a subpoena an escalating the white house's legal battle with congressional democrats let's eisenberg is a key witness for the impeachment inquiry he reportedly was instrumental and locking down the transcript of president trump's july twenty fifth phone call with ukrainian union president by moving it to top secret server so let's learn more about who eisenberg is and his role in this whole saga tom hamburger is is an investigative political reporter for the washington post and tom last week alexander van men the top ukraine advisor at the white house testified that he listened in on that call where president trump asked the president of ukraine to investigate the biden's and vinson said he raised concerns to the white house's top national security lawyer earlier john eisenberg what was eisenberg's response according to your reporting so what we learned about colonel benjamin's testimony to the a house impeachment investigators is is this he was alarmed as he listened to president trump's call with ukraine's president on july twenty five so unnerved that he went immediately after listening to the call to see john eisenberg the white house legal adviser on national security parity to tell him that what the president did was wrong that it seemed to be violating US policy and seemed to be seeking a personal sola political favors from foreign leader he testified that he went to eisenberg's office because he was alarmed by what he had heard on the call and and the only response that he offered during the meeting right after the call was that the roughed transcript of the call the summary of the call should be placed in an unusual usual spot that is the highly classified top secret vault i'm usually reserved for documents that would reveal sources and methods for US intelligence awesome military operations not for presidential call transcripts in fact we're told it's unheard of or virtually unheard of for for such a call to be placed on a classified server like that so that was one step another was a couple of days after the conversation eisenberg approached vitamin again and said i'd like you not to talk to anybody about what we discussed and what you observed in the call again a by itself perhaps there's an innocuous explanation for this but in combination with a couple of other factors that we're talking about here it seemed seemed to some is though it was part of a pattern or could have been part of a pattern or an effort to conceal or berry the substance of the president's conversation with his counterpart in ukraine you also write that by the time vin men came to eisenberg and late july eisenberg was already familiar with concerns among white house awesome officials about the administration's attempts to pressure ukraine for political purposes what did he know and why is this important to note eisenberg was aware of concerns from the national security staff because a couple of weeks earlier on july ten presidents alinsky had sent a delegation of ukrainian indian officials to the white house to try to shore up relations with the US they couldn't figure out why it seemed there was a delay in getting face as to face meeting set up between the newly elected president and president trump and there was some concerns about whether legally mandated a military aid would be flowing to the ukraine and so they came to the white house these two emissaries end-july ten and had a meeting with the national security council staff but also with three other they're individuals one is a special envoy appointed by president trump mr samland another was energy secretary rick perry and the third was a special on on void to ukraine volcker and in the course of meeting with this group those three led by sandra fund seemed to be pushing a request for assistance in getting information that might be helpful to the president politically the conversation was a bit subtle but it so alarmed armed john bolton in this meeting that they had on july ten that he quickly called it to a close and then he later asked one of his associates the national security advisor sir for ukraine to report what was observed to legal office and so the the place that those bolton advisers went was once again john eisenberg so on july ten there was the first warning of an executive branch effort this time not involving the president personally but involving some of his top appointees to seemingly introduce a question of seeking political favors from the new ukrainian administration as a condition for getting a meeting meeting with president or getting needed aid has eisenberg or his lawyer responded to any of this eisenberg has so so far declined to comment and the white house has declined to comment the response that we have is really the response that is visible today on capitol hill which is where in the impeachment investigators hoped john eisenberg would be sitting to answer questions there will be an empty chair eisenberg is another of several figures at the top level of advisors to the president who are declining to respond to subpoenas and request testify in this impeachment inquiry and so he is one of these figures who is now part of this constitutional drama that we're witnessing between the demands of the legislative branch and the claims of special privilege by the white house in the office of the president and those other folks michael ellis also of the national security council as well as robert blair and brian mccormick of the white house office of management and budget they're all skipping this meeting as you said these meetings what will the the democrats do next now that these folks have decided not to testify so there are others who are facing request to testify who are even more senior one is john bolton the research resigned recently as national security adviser he remember is the guy who is at the top of this national the security establishment and in a sense the buck stops with him he would be a critically important witness and his testimony is considered vital so much to a follow that's tom hamburger investigative political reporter for the washington post tom thank you so much good to be with you
