Hi Chase welcome to the Dave Ramsey show. It's randy thanks for taking my call. Sure what's up so I currently am. I'm making thirty three a year. Take home and I just about landed. A new job at that is going to use my income by about twelve year. You're what I what do I do with the difference and money I really have. I've never had to deal with the extra that that much of a job. Why happens? No I mean it's a good problem to have a man good for you. How old are you twenty? I agree what's the new job long. Oh very cool good for you very cool so we teach folks to do and what. I learned to do years ago. Back when I was in your decade chase was Actually to give every dollar an assignment every dollar that does not have a mission written beside add an assignment before the month begins tends to just freaking disappear. If you don't tell money what were to go. You'll always wonder where it went. And that's called a budget every month before the month begins. Get an get your everydollar APP out. Seven million people are using it. Now it's free and download that APP and you can build out your budget in about ten minutes regardless of what you make and all you gotta dot EU using it. Okay then you're giving everydollar name. God you're ahead of me once you're doing that than any money we can find in the budget. We apply to whatever baby step you are on. Do you have any debt No and I've got four months of savings right now so my question. Is I really not ready ready to consider moving out of where I am right now. It's it's a comfortable place I've got plenty of time left on all the east okay. You're fine to to studying retirement retirement going and I would get retirement going and then I would do a little bit of math that says how can I save some money so within the next three or four years. I buy aisles. You don't have to buy one today but you do want to buy one in your twenties and you've got plenty of time to do that so you know if you start putting a Fifteen percent of your income into retirement. That's baby step forward. which is where you are? How much can you save for retirement and I mean for a house down payment and so let's just make up a number you said you've got twelve thousand dollar as let's just say you did? Twelve thousand dollars thousand dollars a month going into an off into a mutual fund for a house in two years you'd have twenty four two thousand and three years you'd have thirty six thousand not not counting on it goes up in value. That'd be pretty nice down payment right. Oh absolutely and You know you've got to manage the other parts of your life if your car runs. If the life starts running out of your car is laying down you gotTA start saving up to buy car right. You got to think about other stuff. Every dollar has to have an assignment and no debt and whatever it is. You're doing buying a house. Investing for retirement going on vacation What's going on a date? Whatever it is you're doing you're paying cash for it as you go along and The good news is you've been very wise to this point. Someone's taught you well and you've been Mature beyond your years and make good decisions to this point now. Don't mess it up. You know take this new raise and given an assignment and it's it's not a chance. Some people think that whatever their new raise equals to take home pay per month is how much their new car payment ought to be some people. They go spend everything they make. They make a little more. That means we have to go spend it and you're not guy so that tells us how wise you are and how far ahead of the game. You are Jordan's where this in Kansas. Hey Jordan how are you good Dave. How's it going better than I deserve? What's up I was just wanted to ask you you whether you thought I should so my vehicle based on my current financial situation. Okay what's the car worth the car is worth about ten ten tend to eleven depending on whether I took it to your cell private party in four on your nineteen ninety four thirteen game four. And what do you make Forty four okay. Do you like the car. it's mostly my wife's car I commute probably about fifty minutes. So about fifty fifty miles to work Currently I'm driving paid off Mustang. Good you we drive. I drive to work. I'm the reason we're thinking about selling it. Because she'll dries maybe once or twice a week and I feel like it's depreciate in like a rock as you say I was thinking about just selling it taking a three thousand dollar so hit and then by maybe a three four or five thousand dollar car somewhere in there with cash. I don't you been married two years. Good good and what's your household income. You told only forty something right. Yeah forty five forty four. Sorry well the rule of thumb that we use is this on we tell folks not to own vehicles that total title up more than half your annual income yours. Don't okay and We tell folks to Be In a situation where or whatever debt you've got other than your home you get. It paid off within two years. You can unless there's a whole bunch of that you didn't tell me about here and the car is not keeping you from doing it anyway so if I'm in your situation I'm keeping the car and I'm GonNa work really really hard to get it paid off Because there is a federal law that sometimes they don't tell you when you get married I learned it later in life and I wish I had known that early federal law. His Momma gets the good car if you violate law. The relationship police come knock not on your head and so I would suggest that Momma gets the good car. And let's get that thing paid off even if she's not driving in a lot you're at work you're driving fifty miles. She's got a dependable vehicle there for your young wife in. You're young marriage and that's that you guys can get paid off and keep if you told me the cars forty thousand dollars in twenty seconds. And she was wanting about it. I'd call her apprentice sus but that's not the situation. That's nothing that's going on here. This is you just trying to tighten screws down and you're being a good man for looking at that but I'm just going to tell you I would would Because it's not that big a number I would see ratio to your other numbers I would keep it and get it paid off as fast as I possibly could. Because you're not going to be able to move down that much in car you're still going to have a three or four thousand dollar debt. Plus you got to buy a car show. Oh you're not gonNA move your numbers that much by doing something with this. Thanks for the call open phones at triple eight eight two five five. Two two five Kristen Kristen is on instagram.

How are you doing my uncle Dave our you? I hope you're happy and healthy. How can I help So my husband and I just got married. And he has about fifty five thousand that He didn't graduate from school When they when him and his first wife got married they had a little boy in about six months later she was diagnosed with brain cancer? She she ended up passing away from that and then We met a few years years later so he didn't finish school. So we have that fifty five thousand now and I'm trying to figure out. I just recently got on fire for sewing and I made like when I was showing I kinda slow down. 'cause they started slowing down for me. I made about maybe like five hundred dollars over three months and I'm wanting to make that like my focus. Love it it's my passion Should we tackle or fifty five thousand in debt burst or worship. I like make that as a side Gig. Are you working a regular job now. I work part time. I am working switching to a full-time if possible With my current job just to we need to get this out of the way. What does he make he makes right now? He's in training. He makes thirteen fifty an hour and then when he gets out of training he does he processes medical claims. He'll get paid per claim so he has the opportunities to make up to twenty dollars an hour depending on how many clean teeth processing. uh-huh very good kind of up in the air. Good for you. ooh Very cool Well here's the thing I mean starting running your own business as long as you're not putting money into it it's not much of a barrier that the only trick is what could you be doing with your time to make more money than that if the goal is to get out of debt. So if you're going to pursue the sewing you've gotta make more than five hundred dollars every three months. Yeah that's still. That's still glorified hobby. We gotta make five hundred dollars a week right and I have that that's just like something I did on the side for you know I figured out. Let's figure out I loved it I work parttime at job so I make about eight hundred dollars after taxes the month with my part time job and then the five hundred dollars extra that I had made over that understand and understand. You're fired up about it but in terms in terms of for it to be a job a career a business. Five hundred dollars over three months is long. Would our would need to be you. You really would want to have a model a way of making more money doing the sewing than that right. And so I I want you to rethink how. You're doing this what you're showing what you're charging for it. Why you're in this situation because I don't want you to work working hard and make five hundred over three months? One hundred seventy five dollars a month. Yeah I know that's not more than aren't you need to make that you need to make like five hundred dollars a week avenue and you can do that. You just got to figure out a different thing that you're showing how how or a different process or different number of hours or whatever it is that you're putting into this hold on I'm GonNa send you a copy of Christie Rights Book Business Boutique Equipping Women to make money doing what they love which is sounds like exactly what we're talking about here so she can help you with that and I'll be sure and check out her podcast in the business boutique podcast and everything as well. Be a big help to you. But I'll send you a copy of the book. Hold on open phones at triple eight eight two five five. Two two five recount callous with us in California. Hi Raquel how are you yes sir. Thank you for taking my call. Sure what's I'm I'm sixty eight retired My debt I've got that's paid The only thing I have is a mortgage which is two hundred some laugh track AKBAL. I'm doing a BI monthly payments on it and the next year two hundred a month. Oh listening to you. I thought well I I really need to try to get it paid off. I do have an annuity None qualified Picks annuity we just one hundred and fifty. I always feel. That's my backup. Nick could money if I need it. And for my emergency fund. I'm always saying uh-huh Thirty thousand or twenty four thirty. It's like Emergency Fund. Annuity do you have any nest egg. I had a fifty seven thousand. Awesome on Four fifty seven which I mean the process of putting an IRA traditional and hopefully get that into a roth so I'm trying to work on that with somebody so I just trying to decide. Oh at my age and all that my monthly secur security and pension is enough for my regular bills. You know how much trying to get If I it probably would sell for not not fifty and I've got a three point Five interests and the annuity is making three point. Two five five yeah. Well that part's not relative to me. I do not want you to have no money and a paid for house. which is I would leave you That's scares me a lot so no I would not recommend that you pay it off with the situation. You're in I do think depending on what your income is from other sources. You probably need to look at moving down and I mean you're in California. Three and fifty thousand is not exactly directly a mansion. Okay but I understand that but I do want you to get to where because that big debt that big payment payment at sixty eight years old and you basically sitting there with only one hundred fifty thousand dollars plus fifty seven in the four fifty seven so basically two hundred thousand a year name. You Two hundred thousand on your House that leaves you in a bad situation leaves you awfully tight and so now I don't want you to pay off pay it off and be How paid off house and no money any That just leaves you too thin. Don't WanNa do that so I do. Probably if you can't have a different plan for getting US thing paid off depending anyway what your income is in the next few years. It's something where you probably do. Need look at moving down so that you could get it paid off without using all of your funds so paid off property with some nest. Egg is the goal at retirement that stabilizes everything for you thanks for the call open phones at triple eight eight two five five two two five. Tim Is in New Jersey. Hey Tom how are you. Dave how are you better than I deserve. What's up okay? So I jus- God onboard the Dave Ramsey train I I got the book on. Who about halfway halfway through it Getting the getting the life on board we We completed step warn and We are on step two. We have twenty six thousand dollars in credit card debt and fifteen thousand worth with a car payment and I wanted to get your thoughts on passion out my 401k that I have those four to tackle the credit the core debt and And just go ahead and work on the court payment now how much is in In your 401k I have dealt twenty nine five. And what's your household income Combined bind is about seventy five. Well I know I would not cash out your 401k to pay off debt unless it was to avoid a foreclosure or bankruptcy. And that's not what you're facing. The reason is really simple when you cash out the 401k early you are charged a ten percent penalty plus your tax rate. which right now is about a twenty percent tax bracket that you're in twenty plus ten in his thirty percent means like saying Dave? I want to borrow money at thirty percent interest to pay off my debts. Well no you would never do that. McGinnis at all. And you wouldn't do that here either. Sorry let's get on a budget. Let's get to sell some stuff. Make an extra job. If these things things paid off but no I would not cash out my 401k. This is the Dave Ramsey show period talk.

Sure what's up so my husband and not are on baby steps five and he works in the building supply industry. Oh he works for the building. Supply apply industry. Okay wait a minute. I think that we had a technical glitch. Here let's try again. Alley is in Kentucky okay. Is that you alley. Yeah okay sorry. We had a little glitch down here in the studio so anyway the your husband works on building supply industry and what yes and so. We both decided that our next town we want to build our forever home. I'm since we kind of have a unique advantage with his connections and ability to get replies. Pretty Lo- Low cost however we have a difference in Kenyan on on which way to go about building our home I am the NERD. He's the Free Spirit. He wants to sell our house this spring when in the market hot go ahead and get as much out of our houses possible and then he wants to build a smaller more energy efficient home on a smaller lot to kind of allow us to have some saving to to help Propeller savings for the new home and pay off the land and then build the house whereas I would rather just stay put Crackdown on our budget and save up policy. Cash that way and pay off the land before we built the house. He's got two kids. I personally don't WanNa move him twice but but he thinks it would be best to Sell our house now to get the most out of it you know. He's got the rich bad and there's no indication that the real estate they market a year from now is worse than it is now so his theory is just he just wants to live on his property he just got the edge and end the problem. I mean you're you're more than just a nerd. Free Spirit thing. This is more a Mama. Bear protecting the cubs and He's got this wild crazy scheme going. And you're trying to protect the family from that That's more what's going on in your head. You're trying to not say that out out loud so I said it. But here's what happens to many times in these situations. The big house never gets built. If you move into the little house on the land and so I wouldn't do that. I would stay put. I'm with you you get my vote on this And I would just continue to save money and get yourself in a position your home one year from the spring Even two years from the spring is not gonNa be worth worth less than it's worth now and if it is it'd be highly unusual real estate market like historically almost never for happens. Okay so you're not going to go anywhere but up in value while you're sitting there saving money yes you do have a monthly mortgage payment. I assume right now don't you. Yes we do. That's our only payment which you would not have in his scenario because you'd be living in the the little property paid for right right but we well know we would have it on the other house of the mortgage are just be much lower a lot lower than what it is now because we would have a lot of equity out of this house to put towards the small small one to temporary. Yeah so would your standard of living in the little house on the prairie. I mean look I I and I think that's his series bachelor. This might work. But he's got a wife and two kids you know that's just that's too we go hole up in a basement somewhere when you make it work but with the kids. It's just stressful to move them. Twice and barn. Live in the loft or something. I mean people do that stuff all the time if they're trying to make this deal work but but kiddos being drug around and yeah I answer questions here like what would I do if I woke up near shoes and I would do your plan. Not His thank you one. Correction there are no forever homes trail. Everyone's life changes everyone's life changes in. What is your dream and meet your needs now? Won't be your dream and meet your needs someday so never build something that you feel like you have to stay there forever for it to be a smart decision Asian. It can still be a very smart decision. He's got access to build deals on building supplies. he knows the building business. You guys have a good solid plan. You can build a great home on a great property that your family enjoys for a very long time but there are very few people that spend more than ten or twelve years in a given house. It's very unusual carefully. I run into somebody. Spend their their whole life. But it's very unusual. Thanks for the call open phones at triple eight eight who five five two two five. Thank you for being here America. We appreciate you. Hanging out with us. Jocelyn is in North Carolina. I John How are you. Hi Mr Transient. I hope you are better than I deserve. How can I help? Yes Sir So I'm fifty years old. I'm baby step six and and I replied my house two years ago with On a fifteen year mortgage a word or an organization that has a pension program And we have a mandatory six percent contribution monthly I've been invest outside of this Tension Program for about four years after into baby step for and So I'm a little behind on my retirement. My question is also because solely eighteen off the house or do I reduce my extra payments toward the mortgage slightly to put an extra three percent in my roth. IRA and 401K. One K well we generally tell people by be stepped forward fifteen percent anything else you can find we throw at the House and that that ends up perfectly for most people it it ends up with the House being paid for before retirement and And you getting into the retirement you know getting a good amount going into retirement now. You've got this mandatory Would you say six or eight percent going into the pension right. So what what percentage of your income including that are you currently putting into retirement right now. I'm doing non percent. Okay Yeah I would raise that to fifteen percent baby step four baby step four fifteen percent of your household income at a minimum and Then above that I would pay extra on the house with any other money.

Russia Expert Angela Stent on What Drives Vladimir Putin

"This is the intelligence matters podcast with former acting director of the CIA, Mike Morell sponsored by Raytheon. Putin, sort of exemplifies forces that have been at work in Russia for hundreds of years, and that is first of all the Russian sense that they are an exceptional civilization that different from the west the Russian sense. And I quote a famous nineteenth century poet that, that the west will inevitably be their enemies. We're foreign policy decisions made in Russia, you know, so the decision on doing Syria or decision on Ukraine, how does that actually happen as far as we understand it on the very important decisions it would be President Putin and just a few people around him unless important foreign policy decisions, it's a wider range of people, but it's very much. I think still people believe President Putin and a small inner circle. China. Maybe the, the big enchilada here, China, what's the basis of this relationship is a tactical strategic how do you think about? I mean, these are two countries that feel that the post Cold War order hasn't taken their interests into account and that they need to have more agency in and they're both committed to what they call a post west order. So they share a desire to change the way that really that the world is when. Throughout the centuries. When Russia I became a great power in the nineteenth century, it's always only being able to act as a great power by virtue of its military presence, rather than economically, because it's always been economically behind Europe behind the more developed countries are able to project military power on the cheap fairly successfully, particularly, where in areas where they're surprising, the west or where the west doesn't want to respond. Angela stent is the director of the center for Eurasian Russian and east. European studies at Brookings Institution. She is also a professor of government and foreign service at Georgetown University. She has served as the national intelligence officer for Russia and Eurasia at the national intelligence council. Angela just published her most recent book, Putin's world Russia against the west and with the rest, I had a chance to sit down with Angela to discuss her book, and all things Russia will be right back with that discussion afterward from our exclusive sponsor Raytheon. I Michael morale, and this is intelligence matter. From end to end cybersecurity too high energy lasers to quantum computers, way, theon is they're advancing technologies that protect people information and infrastructure Raytheon making the world a safer place. Angela, welcome to intelligence matters. You know, as you know, one of the key national security issues facing the United States is the international behavior of the Russians, and you've just published I think very important book on why Russia, does what it does. It's called Putin's world Russia against the west and with the rest. It's fantastic to have you on the show. No. Glad to be here. Perhaps the place to start Angela is to get your perspective on. What are the Russians actually doing in the world? You know from kind of big picture perspective. And then we can dive into why they're doing it and what we should do about it. Right. And then maybe also get into a little bit about Moscow's approach to different parts of the world. But how would you start? How would you characterize what they're doing in the world? So Putin came in as president, with one of the goals was to restore Russia. As a great power. And to put behind Russia, what he considered the humiliation of the nineteen nineties. So one thing that doing is showing the rest of the world that they are a great power, despite their economic weakness, and that they belong at the they, they need to have a seat in the global board of directors. They should be asked about any important international decision. So that's one thing they doing showing their presence and saying to the world you cannot ignore us. You have to treat us with respect and to take our interest legitimacy. And what are the specific things that they do to that end like Syria, for example? Right. Well in Syria, you know, the, the west try to isolate Russia after the annexation of Crimea and the Russians launching a war in southeastern Ukraine, and Putin's answer to that was to go and start bumming in Syria. He was concerned that a sad might be defeated which indeed, he might have been. And Russia has saved him Russia's now. You know, a major power that back in, in Syria. It's and it was again done by boming and in many. Ways the way they do. This is by disrupting you can see this now even in Venezuela or country like that. It's to go back to areas. Maybe Russia withdrew after the Soviet Union collapsed, but just to make difficult for the west to achieve its goals. So great power anything else pursuit, or or, or is that the driving force here driving objective? There's also a domestic imperative this is a group of people that want to stay in power. They've accumulated a very large amount of money which they don't want to lose. They don't know what's going to happen in the next leadership succession, so it's also using the foreign policy to try and keep themselves in power and Putin has very skillfully appealed to the Russian population to their patriotism, you know, to increase his popularity numbers because they were falling for instance, before the Crimean adventure. And how does that play out so that plays out in a place like Crimea? Does that play out and other places? It's played out. Particularly in Crimea to some extent in Syria, in the beginning, again, the Russian population, apparently was proud that Russia was back, there was showing the Americans that they couldn't push them around. I believe there's somewhat diminishing returns with that now and maybe we can come back to that later given the economic state of the country. But that is still something that apparently appeals to the Russian population. So you say something very important in a book Angela. And that is that most people focus on Putin the man in explaining Russian behavior. But you think you know that's obviously important, but you also think that there's, there's a bigger issue here. That's russia. The nation Russia the nation state. Can you talk about that a little bit? Yes. I think Putin sort of exemplifies forces that had been at work in Russia for hundreds of years, and that is first of all the Russian sense that they are an exceptional civilization that different from the west on the Russian sense. And I quote, a famous nineteenth century poet, there that the west will. Inevitably be their enemies that they are. They going to be opposed to the west, the west isn't really going to serve their interests. And I think the other thing is the sense of Russian insecurity, because it has no clear Boorda's except in the north and you've always had this tradition for hundreds of years of expansion of Russia's borders, absorbing, its neighbors, then retreat, when it's defeated and then re absorbing those neighbors, again, we're does this sense of exceptionalism come from. Oh, I think it's it, you probably have to go far back in history. The way that the Russian state was formed the role of the Russian Orthodox church. And the fact that, you know, Russia has developed a civilization that is different from that of its western European neighbours. So does this mean that Putin doesn't matter that much that if it wasn't Putin, there would be somebody else, like Putin? You know, how much of this is history and tradition and culture in worldview on the part of Russia. And how much of this is Putin, so I think any leader who would have taken over from Boris Yeltsin, because the nineteenth was a time of chaos of impoverishment in Russia and you had to lead who wasn't very well towards the end of his tenure in office. So I think anyone who would have taken over from him would've wanted to restore a strongest state on would've wanted Russia, to resume some at least a regional, if not a more global robot to, to restore Russia, as of a power that managed in the world. I think the particular way that it's happened onto Putin is unique to him given his background, you know, amid ranking KGB official a case officer who served in each is east Germany, than someone who served in the office of the mayor instant pitas book, the mayor was sort of democratic leaning. But that's when they began this sort of rather corrupt system of acquiring asset. Of, of the, the economic system. We see in Russia today and Putin, like many Lita surrounded himself with people who come from a similar background so he rules with those close to him, many of whom from the security services. And so I think that has made a difference because I think if you'd had someone who did not come from intelligence background. It's possible that their relationship with the west wouldn't be quite as bad as Russia's as today. So can you describe him? We're kind of person. He is what his personalities like analogy traits characteristics. How would you describe Putin? The man. So I mean my encounters with President Putin have been at these annual Valdai club meetings in Russia, where they bring over foreign experts on Russia around me we meet with various leaders, including President Putin, this is someone who's pretty well informed on issues when he's in small groups in you ask him questions. He doesn't refer to some assistant who stunning next to him. He's. Interested in things like economics and energy. He can real off statistics. He has some very strange notions of history, which quite amusing, sometimes, but I would say this is someone who's in command of the facts is, you know, can be quite direct and almost route to people when he wants to be. But, but seems to he exudes by now self confidence. So let's let's stick with Putin. So looking back and his experiences, both, both as a young man, and then as a KGB officer and then you has, as you said in the mayor's office in in Saint Petersburg. How did those experiences shape him so he grew up poor in post-war Leningrad? And this is, you know, not just a little more than a decade after the siege of Leningrad occurred when the Nazis tried to starve out the city in a million of its inhabitants. Died in Leningrad. So an his parents lived in a communal apartment, like most people did in those days in the Soviet Union, so they will pour and apparently he was an indifferent student in school. And then what apparently raised him up was when he decided to take up judo and in an autobiographical series of essays that was published when he first became president, two thousand he refers to the playing judo. I mean learning judo and that was the sport that enabled him to transcend this rather mediocre, if you like background and then also apparently learning German at which he did very well under German teacher, who sold the promise in him. So if we're to believe this book, this is how he then managed to do reasonably well in school, and then got himself into Leningrad state university to study law, and we also know again from this book that he had wanted to join the KGB as at a young age so that age sixteen. He presented himself. To the KGB and they said, come back and we'll talk to you later. So, I think growing up I mean another book is being written about Putin describing him really as a civilised, and I think that's part of it growing up in this postwar Leningrad in poverty, and in rather bleak circumstances. And then he went to the two east Germany. He was a young man in his thirties. And I think what really influenced him that was festival. He enjoyed living in east Germany. It was it had a much higher standard of living than the Soviet Union. Did he lived better there? But then what happened to him? Of course in one thousand nine hundred nine was, when the Berlin Wall came down, he was in a building co located with the east German security services, and, you know, the mob came up and demanded the files, they wanted all that files, they want to know what was going on. And so he describes again spending all night in this building burning papers so that nobody could get hold of them and saying that. No one in Moscow was there to help him. In other words, profound feeling of being abandoned by the Gorbachev people after all of this happened, and then leaving east Germany earlier, probably didn't he would've and coming back to then we'll still Leningrad but without a job. Really? And then finally finding work in the mayor's office. And the this was something new. He was in charge of foreign economic contacts. And that's when we know he got together with a group of his friends, they oh boy duchess country houses, and in the same place on the outskirts of then what became Saint Petersburg, and they apparently started to accumulate wealth. He had these contacts with foreign business people. And that was the time when he first met Henry Kissinger, friends, since but apparently he was his driver when he was driving around Saint Peter's book, so, so you have these dual biographies there, and then he was brought to Moscow in the mid nineteen ninety s another. The thing that I think affected him was the in one thousand nine hundred six the math for whom he worked, Mr. Sobchak, there was a rather dirty reelection campaign and Sobchak lost. And that was also something the parents influence Putin, and he realized that, if you have an election, you don't know, who's going to win, you know, that can turn out badly. And so then again, he was out of a job. But then he was brought to Moscow and the recent why Yeltsin picked him apparently was because he was persuaded that this was going to be a loyal man. He promised President, Yeltsin and his family that nothing would happen to them one home welded. He no Yeltsin prior to being shows. I don't think he knew him that. Well, I think it was people around Yeltsin, like farro, Spurs off ski and others who recommended Putin to him. I don't think he knew him that well, and do you, do you have a sense of whether he was successful at his career the KGB how he was doing when this all fell apart. So if you read. The memoirs of the man who used to be in the east German secret police as the head of their international operations, Marcus Volve. He'll say this was someone who is barely on his radar screen. He was dressed in trust. In was not one of the major cities in east Germany. It was kind of a backwater, and that he was a mid level Lieutenant cuddle in the KGB. I don't know how you would judge how well he did. But he, he suddenly wasn't well known Angela. Or foreign policy decisions made in Russia. You know, is there a process who's at the table? Is it really only a small group of advisors as we hear, you know? So the decision on doing Syria or the decision on Ukraine, how does that actually happen? Well, of course, we all wish we knew and we have some of the finest minds in the United States in the intelligence agency. Trying to figure this out, this is a government that's run by people who come from the security services. So having said that what we understand is there is a national security. There's a Security Council, which certainly meets regularly and discusses things as far as we understand it on the very important decisions it would be President Putin and just a few people around him. It could be the defense minister could be the head of the, that's the foreign intelligence services. It could be the head of the domestic intelligence services. It could be maybe a few other officials depending on the issue. Who will sit with him, and we'll discuss these matters. We know that the foreign ministry doesn't really seem to have much of a say in any of these decisions, and that often the foreign ministry finds out about things for instance, what happened with the Russia, Georgia war and other issues after they've taken place, there is no, I'm like, even in the Soviet period, that very few institutions where you can identify this is what this particular branch this institution. This office does unless important foreign policy decisions. It's a wider range of people, but it's very much I still people believe President Putin and a small in a circle in your book, you wrote that, that the foreign minister wasn't involved in the Ukraine decision, for example, yes, as far as we know he wasn't annexation of Crimea, but something they found out about afterwards. So you believe Angela that Putin has largely achieved the objective that you said he was after. Right. Which is managing return to return Russia as a global player. Layer. So he's been successful at what he has set out to do. How do you think he thinks about that? And how do you think he thinks about where to go next? So in my book, I do also point out there areas where he clearly hasn't been successful. I mean, the whole episode in Ukraine he has managed Russia's Russia's'managed through its actions to unite Ukrainians and away that they weren't United before there's always been a split between east and west that seems to have diminished, much more than Ukrainian seemed to develop a much stronger sense of national identity. I think he would probably also look out an acknowledged at some point that his designed to reintegrate the post-soviet space has been my only partially successful and what does he want to do in that post-soviet space? Does he want to actually physically control it or does, he does want to have significant influence over it? He wants to have significant influence and he doesn't want any of the post-soviet states to join any euro Atlantic alliances. I. Well NATO or to join the European Union. He doesn't want to create the Soviet Union re-created because I think he can't, but he wants to feel again, going back to this kind of sense of space, and insecurity, that the borders of the former Soviet space, really the security perimeter of Russia until that none of Russia's neighbors. Particularly Ukraine should move closer to the west, and it's kind of interesting to the, the way you described Russia, right as being this insecure nation and therefore the new to show that it's powerful actually, kind of kind of sounds like Putin himself as a person. Yeah. I think that's I think that's probably true. I think given the fact that he grew up in the second city in the Soviet Union that he, you know, even when he went to east Germany wasn't sent to east Berlin. So yes, it's, it's trying, I think to compensate for some of that too, and using the skills that he learned probably both as a judo is as the Russians call it. And in the KGB using his skills to take. Advantage of the distraction of the west the mistake, the west makes in other words, Russia, right where the per capita GDP is less than that of Italy, which has a declining population, a crumbling infrastructure. It's live very limited resources, but making pretty savvy use of those resources to reassert Russia. We're gonna take a quick break to hear from our sponsor, and we'll be right back with more of our discussion with Angelus debt. Do you hear that? That's the sound of the world changing of networks. Connecting enemies evolving. You can't slow it down. You can't avoid it. You can't stop it. But you can stay a step ahead every day. Raytheon engineers are innovating modernizing delivering trusted innovative solutions that protect people information and infrastructure. So as our world changes, we can make it a safer place. So maybe now we go to Russian foreign policy kind of region by region here, a little bit, which I think, is you did a fabulous job in your book. Let me kind of throw them out and get you to react to each one of them, I would be Europe. And I should say that I found it interesting that you talk about from Russia perspective. Right. You talked about Europe from Russia perspective as both a model and then NATO as the enemy talking about that. That's fascinating. So I would say tradition. For Russians Europe has being admired as an economic model. In other words, you get Peter the great, first of all, in the seventeenth century, setting out, incognito, traveling Europe to try and learn how, you know, the Europeans managed to have such an advanced economy. So there's always being an admiration for that, you know, even under the communists, what the Russians have been much more wary of is kind of if you like the idea of Europe, the ideas, that European states put forward starting with the enlightenment the renaissance reformation, all of the things that Russia itself, never experienced like that. And so those the ideas of the rule of law of due process of individual liberties, and human rights and their successive Russian rulers at least have been very wary of those. And so what Russia doesn't like about the European Union is first of all the idea that a group of countries would give up, this sovereignty voluntarily Putin absolute sovereignty the sovereignty of big perilous. Is very, very important. And then the fact that the, all these European countries can get together and agree on things like sanctions, and even if individual countries don't like the sanctions anymore, if the leading countries like France and Germany believe in them than they continue. And what the European Union explicitly is as a community values and so whenever the European Union deals with Russia it talks about talks about values so that's the European Union. Now, NATO has always been viewed, you know, since the Soviet times as the main enemy after all it was founded in one thousand nine forty nine to contain the Soviet Union, and, despite the fact that NATO after the collapse of the Soviet Union declared that, you know, it didn't see Russia's an enemy wanted to work with Russia, it established a NATO Russia council when NATO works with Russia, despite all of those things that wariness really has has remained there. And then, of course, the other thing that the Russians will though they didn't complain about it at the time. But have retroactively complained about it was the enlargement of NATO starting off with, with Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic in nineteen ninety nine with Boris Yeltsin didn't really say very much, but they didn't love it. And then, of course in two thousand four when you had a big enlargement, which included the Baltic states and now and since then Russia, has claimed the, you know, Nater NATO is a number one danger at a time when NATO itself said, we want to work cooperatively with Russia. That's not what the Russians said. But by now, of course from the NATO point of view Russia is a major challenge and adverse read because of what's happened in Ukraine Russian behavior would be any different if NATO enlargement didn't come to Russia's border, right? So this is a subject to big debates. You know, people have said, if only wouldn't we wouldn't have enlarged NATO, this was the original sin, everything would be fine. I'm. Really not. So sure about that, because NATO enlargement in the beginning was largely down also to prevent the central European states who still held a lot of historical grievances against each other to, to get them. You know, the Romanians Hungarians, for instance, to agree that they didn't have territorial claims on each other to get the, the central European countries to be in an alliance where they accepted the other ones bore doesn't work together. If they wouldn't it be NATO enlargement, what would have happened to all of those countries, they would have just been kind of bouncing in be in no-man's-land in between. And then you probably would have had the temptation for Russia, to reassert its influence that so I am not convinced that if they hadn't been NATO enlargement, we'd have a much better relationship with Russia. The Middle East. Do you think about Russian foreign policy in the Middle East? So there I see I see is one of Putin's to successes really. And that's the return to the Middle East in. In fact, probably most successful way than the Soviet Union was ever there because I'm the Putin Russia hasn't chosen sides. The United States has chosen sides, right. We see Iran is a major adversary. An a lot of our policy in the Middle East is directed in that way, the Russians now of the only power in the region. The talks to all sides on in all disputes to Iran and the Shia groups to all the Sunni states, and of course, to Israel, and it's very pragmatic, it's an ideological. And what I see is, for instance, RAI Russia's to newest partners, if you like Saudi Arabia, Israel, both American allies. They both would like Russia to use its influence to Tempa Iranian ambitions in the region. Although I think they overestimate the influence that Russia has, but they, you see in the Saudi case, a lot of this is about oil production. Well oil prices. The Russians are now working with the Saudis and OPEC to try and keep production down with Israel. It's about the war in Syria and about the fact that one point three million Isreaeli citizens, you know, come from the former Soviet Union. But then, you know, expanding its links with Egypt, for instance, my closer ties now economic and military and it's seen as an arbiter of as a neutral arbiter in the way that the United States were not. I mean, the US is obviously much more powerful than Russia. And Russia can't replace the US militarily or economically in the Middle East. But yet the US has not seen as a neutral. You also talk a little bit about Putin's personal reasons for an interest in relations with Israel that I thought was really interesting. Yes. So ironically, whatever you can say about Putin's Russia and what it's like to live in sight Putin's Russia from the point of view of their ability to exercise their religion. This is probably the best time that Jews living in Russia I've ever had in terms of religious. Liberty and, you know, he writes about this, again, in this two thousand autobiographical interview that he grew up in this apartment communal apartment, and there was an elderly Jewish couple there. That was very kind to him when he was growing up. So in which he talks about. And he's, you know, he's visited the country, quite often his favorite German teacher, eventually emigrated to Israel. So they apparently is some personal reason we know that some of the oligarchs whom he's close are also Jews China. Maybe the, the big enchilada here, China you talk about growing cooperation between the two. The director of national intelligence, the last worldwide threat. Testimony made a big deal about the growing cooperation between the two you note in your book, that she ping last year said, quote Putin, is my best, most intimate friend, unquote. What's the basis of this relationship is a tactical strategic how do you think about that? I think it started off being more tactical, but I think now not to exaggerate. It say it's, it's an alliance, but it is quite strategic. I mean, these are two countries that feel that the post cold water hasn't taken their interests into account, and that they need to have more agency in it, and they're both committed to what they call a post west order, now I think their ideas of what that is a different. What Russia wants is probably different from what China wants obviously China, as the rising ecconomic power has a different interest in this as Russia Russia's the junior partner. In this relationship. But so they share at a desire to change the way that really that the world is when they're very sensitive, obviously, to any western attempts to interfere in what they consider their domestic prerogatives. So neither country's going to criticize the other one for lack of democracy. And for pushing. Both of those intervention anywhere else in the world. Exactly. So the whole concept of what we talk about humanitarian intervention. They will disagree with this. The humanitarian intervention the Russians will agree with this, helping, you know, the people in eastern Ukraine, who didn't want to be part of Ukraine. So I think it's a world view that similar it's but the Chinese, you know, they need large amounts of energy. And they've now gotten a good deal with Russia after the sanctions were imposed after the station of Crimea. The Chinese were able to negotiate major gas pipeline deal with Russia on turns that the Russians would have would not have accepted before the sanctions. But they didn't have any choice and for the Russians, you know, the Chinese back them up on all of them, major foreign policy issues, the Chinese did, abstain, when the general assembly voted to condemn Russia for the annexation of Crimea. They did not support the Russians there. But in general, they vote together on the United Nations Security council and the Russian support the Chinese on all of them, major. Foreign policy issues. So it's, it's, it's pragmatic, it's instrumental, but we now see military cooperation for the first time you had Chinese troops participating in Russian military exercises. Last full in the eastern part of Russia. We now see this. There's going to be more sort of training, an cooperation with the F four so slowly, the military aspect of this, I think is getting close, so Angela up to ask about the dichotomy you, you raise this earlier. But I want to come back at it directly, the dichotomy between Russia's role in the world and the size and health of its economy. Right. How does how possible so throughout the centuries? When Russia I became a great power in the nineteenth century, it's always only being able to act as a great Powell by virtue of its military presence were ability to project, military power, rather than economically, because it's always been. Economically behind Europe behind the more developed countries. And rusher is able to do this. And I think part of this is in the post-soviet Rome Russia is by far, the strongest military power. So that's easy. It's easy for them to do whatever they've done in Ukraine to send soldiers there. I mean, Ukrainian army is no match for them or in other parts of the, you know, the frozen conflicts of the post-soviet space, that's easy in Syria. You know, they've, what they've done in Syria. They've done with fairly limited resources, they haven't not that many soldiers and, and have gone that casualties haven't been that big. So they've managed to do that on a fairly tight budget if you like and even what we see now in Venezuela. It'll be interesting to see what happens there. But so far, you know, it, it hasn't cost them so much able to project military power on the cheap fairly successfully, particularly, where in areas where they're surprising the west or where the. West doesn't want to respond. I mean obviously, the US NATO was not gonna go directly against the Russians in Ukraine, even though NATO's beefed off its troops, true presence in that area. And I think that is that they're not is how they are able to do it. None of these are massive military, interventions and the other the other tool, they use writers and very capable intelligence services. And at the end of the day intelligence is not that expensive. No, exactly. It's the intelligence of his, and they, they as, as we know they all very good. And as we know in our own case, they've been able to exploit obviously, the, the weaknesses, both in social media and in the cyberspace to their own advantage. So interesting at the end of the day. So here's one of the things I struggle with, and the end of the day, when I look at Putin in Russian foreign policy, I wonder whether it serves the long term interests of the country or not, or is it actually doing a disservice to the long-term future of Russia? How do you think about that question? So. I think you have to think about it that in the long run, what the Russian leadership should do is reform. The economy in such a way that Russia will become a fully modern country. It's not a modern country. It doesn't have modern institutions of governance. It's largely a raw materials exporting state, and if you compare it to its neighbors China, but even not China's smaller countries in Asia, they're going to go ahead. And Russia is going to remain at the, you know, a much lower level, economically without a modern economy, but I was questioned this when I worked in at the national intelligence council, and other places where people to sit down and do scenarios, you try and think what the future is, and you always look at the fundamentals, and you say the Russians can't go on, like this, that populations declining, you know, they're not modernizing the economy and at some point things can collapse. But we do know from history that the Russians managed to carry on an muddle along, you know, they surprise us when they. Do that more than we think they will. So I do think that in the long run. I don't see that Russia's really served by a foreign policy than antagonize, the west that much it would be better from the Russian point of view and economically for them to if we had better relations, because they've got much more, you know, western investment, and things like that. So. And we know that this, you know, as long as Russia continues the way, it is, there's a significant brain, drain at the most talented people who are not staying in Russia, but the emigrating to Europe or the United States, so Australia so in the long run, this doesn't serve their interests that, well, but cutting through the nationalism right to get to ride. You're talking about would be extremely difficult. And the long run, you know is some way away and it certainly beyond the tenure of leading Putin in the Kremlin. Angela, let's finish up with a couple of questions on US policies. You write in the book at the west has had flawed assumptions about Russia. What are those flaws? Well, I think we will probably I'm overly optimistic although understandably, overly optimistic in the nineteen nineties when the Soviet Union collapsed, and I think particularly in the Clinton administration believing that Russia did want to move towards the west and if only we gave them the wherewithal and, and, and worked with them to do that, that, that would be. That choice. And I think, again, if you go back to history, and you look at the long-term factors, I think, for many Russians, you know, developing more like the west being integrated more with the west would have to them being seen as something where they had very little agency and they were junior partners. And I think we underestimated the degree to which the loss of great power status or however, it was presented to the population really had a very profound impact on people. And so I think those workflow assumptions that doesn't mean that we can work with Russia or we couldn't if were circumstances better. But I think in the future US has to be more realistic about what Russia is and how it's likely to develop with us, flawed assumptions shared by shared broadly by Russia, experts or or was really talking about the, the people making policy. Well it where people making policy, but interestingly enough, some of the most tough. Anti-soviet think, you know, experts academics think tank because they were very enthusiastic because I think a lot of people maybe focus too much on the fact that the reason the Soviet Union have acted the way it has had. It was because it was at least nominally a Marxist Leninist, communist country, even though probably didn't believe that and not realizing enough that a lot of one informs the way that Russia acts is Russian and is going back, you know, into Russian history, and, and, and the ideology that you saw in the Soviet period was kind of superimposed on historical traditions, that have reasserted themselves, the IC share in mistake, about the assumptions were was the I more sober more realistic. I think they will probably more sober and realistic, which of course, led to all the debates the, you know that we know about now about, whether, you know, Gorbachev and people like him with just sort of a passing phenomenon. If we applied the more accurate, assumptions right? About where this policy is coming from, and enduring it is, what should be our policy. Well, I think we do we have to work with Russia on some issues, we should have very realistic expectations. But there are issues for instance arms control. I mean, we have a, a major treaty that's going to expire the new start treaty. In twenty twenty one these areas whereas the two worlds two nuclear superpowers with what ninety three percent of the of the of the weapons, we do need to work with the Russians, and there are other areas where we could work with the Russians we have worked with them, not with successfully on counter-terrorism, but sometimes it's worked so we have to define narrowly where we need to work with them, but not have any illusions about the fact that thing going to move any closer to view of the world than we have at the present. And then, and there are other issues you compartmentalize the relationship the Arctic. This is an area where we're both working together with them. And as we now read, there's also a. Military buildup, and we can become competitive there. So probably, we're now in a stage where we are again, global competitors in a way that we weren't before, even though again, the US is much stronger than Russia's still and identify those, those narrow areas where we can work together and we're we're they're creating that turbulence in the world, what do we do? So then we have to really devise better ways of deterring them, you know, one of countering them clearly, first of all issues like cyber election interference which continues to today we have to we have to build up our defenses and where appropriate respond to them. But so far we have done very well. In deterring Russia, am I think we're often surprised by what they do. And so, I think we have to have we have to be somewhat better at thing, you know, thinking about where they might go next of, of being forward, looking and thinking about that.

We will have an app because your entire life should revolve around your phone and be on the lookout for branded pills. Lotions russians appointments crystals in prayer rocks. Thanks everyone. I hope you enjoyed this episode of the working experience the working experience i'm ninety. Three north is almost at a standstill yet so rough out there this morning win. Sleep limits no service on any unclear. The closing doors to be a few minutes and traffic should make make sure and lay down either reporting s._a._p. Presentation charlotte awesome team meeting at work makes the dream work and after the meeting. We'll have a breakout session. It is discovered that flywheel everyone's medicaid for the working experience podcasts with another guided meditation. You know what time it is. It's time for the real estate europe past years. They won't matter anyway so sh- let someone else to care of it. Don't stress yourself. Stress is killer sh- now this is an important topic so i'm just going to dive right in here work as we all know can be very stressful things pile up people are sending you emails asking for status updates on various projects and coming into into your office with more files and and you have a meeting at ten that you haven't prepared for an on and on and on on day after day after day. It never seems to end now. There are the so-called experts with strategies to prioritize your tasks tasks. They offered tips on how to stay organized. Some people will tell you that you need to hustle to be successful successful. Some lunatics will want you to get to work earlier to get a jump on things. Some will say that you need to work more effectively or exercise in the morning to alleviate stress. I say say you have enough going on in your life. You don't need anymore breath as always we had the working experience podcasts like to offer a simpler easier solution solution. You know matty kay amal about easy. We don't like to complicate your life. Any further other than it already is with more stuff to do. You don't need to hear about anymore strategies that you need to work carter. We've never advocated that working. Harder just leads to more work. We like to keep keep simple when work is really overwhelming. You dear listeners. I just have one thing for you. Just is colin sick if you're not in the office you don't have to deal with it. Just don't be there. The old saying is showing up as half the battle. Well that may be true but but if you don't show up at all there is no simple effective easy. Just call in sick of course you do. I do have to employ a bit of forethought. What's your excuse going to be. My personal. All favorite is diarrhea. He had just rolls off the tongue diarrhea. When you tell someone you have diarrhea that usually ends the conversation pretty quickly. No one one wants to hear the details about your diarrhea. They will usually answer with oh. That's too bad and then try to get off the phone as quickly as possible. The real trek comes into trying to offer the details tales to make them think you are trying your best to be open and transparent. You really want to come to work but you can barely get off the toilet because you bowels are so loose. Trust me. No one wants to hear about that. Another excuse to consider is a rash somewhere in the vicinity of the waistline. You can tell your manager that it is causing you concern because of a discoloration and burning sensation in the affected area tell him or her that you've tried applying various statements but it's not gotten any better so you will consult a doctor again. No one's gonna ask for any proof that something vaguely contagious like a stomach. Stomach bug can work well too. You can say something like oh. I don't want to get everyone else. Sick what itself self-sacrificing hero you are. You would definitely drag your sick self into work. It's not your health. You're worried about it's the health of everyone else so altruistic altruistic and i can almost guarantee they'll say no. No no no you stay home feel. You'll better get better. Everyone's so sympathetic these days that you can really take advantage of that it be creative the be consistent calling out sick from work as a craft. It can't be anything thank too serious but just serious enough you want to steer clear of any kind of supposed- injury because then people would be looking for a bandage or cast store something like that. You'd have to come up with a story as to how you injured yourself. That could go wrong pretty quickly. You'd raise suspicions so so keep it vague enough that you don't have to provide any proof but enough to keep you out of work also be conscious of using the same excuse to many times this can raise suspicions and may eventually require some. I'm kind of a doctor's note. Some people may criticize this as avoiding work or just being flat out lazy. We call it a proactive method of stress management so sh which you have a lot on your shoulders. Take a day for yourself or two or three. Those pesky viruses can keep you in bed for a week or more stay home. Put the t._v. On and sh which we always say here at the workings variance podcast someone also do it have a great week.

There's been more dead Russians in the past three months that are tied to this investigation They are dropping dead even in Western countries. I Max Bergmann and director of the Moscow project in this is a special bonus episode of the asset in October. Two thousand six two Russian. Hitmen came to London. Their names were Andrei Lugovoi Dmitry Covington and they were there to kill a former Russian spy named Alexander. Litvinenko is some random kidding. This this was a killing with a very clear purpose and that it was a killing with some state felt it was perhaps the most dacians murder on British soil ever Alexander. Lithuanian Co was the Russian spy who turned against his old pay masses for the KGB. It's a high level but was drawn into silom in Britain in two thousand Lipin when Yanko was a former officer in the Russian. FSP The predecessor to the KGB during the nineteen nineties when Russia descended into chaos lipin. Janko saw that there were growing ties between the FSP and the mob in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight Lynn. Yanko blew the whistle and he went to the brand the new head of the F. S. B.. A man named Vladimir Putin Lifton Yanko told Putin about the corruption he was seeing but after the meeting. Listen Yanko told his wife quote I could see in my eyes. He hated me. Litvinenko later held a press conference with other FSB officers officers which resulted in Putin. Firing him from the F. S. B. in when Putin became the president of Russia in two thousand Litvinenko Vinh Yanko fled. He had become an outspoken critic of the Kremlin and of poten now. Criticizing Putin openly is dangerous enough but Litvinienko Vinh Yanko made it his mission to expose the Kremlin. He wrote books accusing Putin of having a role in the apartment bombings in nineteen ninety. Nine that we talked about an episode sold three in season one and of having ties to the Russian mob. He also became an informant for. Britain's M I six their equivalent of the the CIA Lynn Yanko began telling British and Spanish authorities about the Russian mob and about all the links between the Russian mob and the Russian government according to US officials it was Litvinienko that coined the term mafia state to describe Russia woodmen. Yanko was actually going to Spain to testify testify before a judge about Russia's links to the mob but he never made it because these two assassins had arrived in London. I spoke with Luke harding journalist and author of the book a very expensive poison the assassination of Alexander Litvinenko and Putin's war with the West if and Yanko was ause really kind of body an unfairness almost foolhardy critical Putin he. He accused him of rice misdeeds. He'll says suggested tested the that Russia under Putin it become a Mafia state that essentially organized crime the government bureaucracy the FSP this said merge to form a monster monster sort of criminal entity which masqueraded as a state but as she behave more like the mafia and of course he was living in K.. was cooperating with them takes on a freelance basis. So he's working with British intelligence and it's pretty clear that by summer two thousand six there was a secret plots to to kill him. The assassins arrived in London. Armed with something called polonium two ten polonium. Two ten wasn't just any he poison. It was a rare very very fatal radioactive isotope from a super secret. FSP Lab the weapon polonium Colonia small tiny deadly invisible. You combine in a drugstore. Y- you need nuclear reactor to make it. And of course the any country that that made any kind of quantities Russia everything about balloon him to ten is regulated by the state transportation is regulated. Take it by this date. And she uses regulated by the state polonium is one hundred percent that it destroys cells the immune system to organ failure throughout the body. This is truly the stuff of a James Bond movie or John licari novel. Now the poison might have been of high quality. But the S- Asan's strangely were not there. First attempt to poison Lavigne Yanko in a boardroom. During a meeting meeting actually failed all they accomplish. The first time was tracking massive amounts of radiation all over London. But the second time they got living Yanko due to meet him in a posh hotel one that actually stayed at when I served in government as it was close to the US embassy when Griffin Yanko finally got there to the hotel. There was is a teapot on the table. He poured himself a cup and took a SIP. The heave remembered was cold and it didn't taste good. He told the detective active. He didn't like it he didn't finish the cup. In fact he said quote maybe in total. I swallowed three or four times. Just three or four sips and and that's all it would take twenty two days later Alexander Litvinenko would be dead and he knew who had ordered his murder over his slow. Oh painful decline over the next twenty two days. He told the detectives that as he was leaving the hotel he thought to himself quote. I knew that they wanted to kill me. A few days later he fell ill. He was throwing up and he went to the hospital. It took a while before the doctors at the hospital could figure out what was wrong with him as he lay there dying Litvinenko. The trained intelligence officer actually began solving his own murder in the unusual position. In having you could describe as living victim telling us about how it was that he came to believe that he was meeting his death he helped investigators is piece together that it had been the two men in the hotel and the T. He also made sure that his death would be in vain. He gave investigators all of his passwords and told them where all the information he had been. Keeping on. The Russian government in the Russian mob was when asked if there was anyone who would have wanted to harm him he replied that person is the president of the Russian Federation Vladimir. Putin I have no doubt whatsoever that as soon as the power changes in Russia or when the first officer of Russian special services defects to the West he will say the same. He will say that. I have been poisoned by the Russian special services. On Putin's order on his deathbed Litvinenko's lawyer drafted a statement enlivened. Yanko signed it. It read quote you may succeed in silencing silencing one man but the howl of protest from around the world will reverberate Mr Putin in your ears for the rest of your life in on November number twenty third two thousand six twenty two days after drinking that T- Levin Yanko died leaving behind a wife and a son Luke Luke harding dug deep into the Litvinenko Story. I interviewed the two killers on deliver into mutual. Colston follow their press conferences. When with Lugovoi as is he became a deputy a lawmaker in the Russian parliament or Duma in fact harding's investigation into Litvinienko may have been one of the factors behind Russia's decision to kick harding out of Moscow altogether when he was a guardian correspondent? I was kicked out of Russia in February. Two thousand eleven. I washed up four years. This is the guy who's Moscow bureau chief and why precisely they decided to get rid of me is something of a mystery but I I think they had made it. It's made by which I mean. The Russian Foreign Ministry Press Department they were unhappy with my reporting. I was writing stories about top level corruption during my time Moscow. I'll scan in quite basic questions. Like how much money Vladimir Putin have Irate about the FSBA an in particular. Its role in the matter of Alexander. Living Yankee the Russian dissident when when I flew back in February two thousand eleven to rejoin my family I I went to to to possible. Control handed my possibilities as normal and and the woman woman behind the counter wearing an olive green form tapped him my details and then sort of physically comically recoiled from her seat is if something really apocalyptic was written there And told me to wait. Gave my another official. Who who who've scrutinized? It came back after ten minutes and said To me in Russian said Devas does not quick to Russia's closed despite Putin's best efforts to deny it and we should be clear Putin in both of the alleged assassins have denied any involvement. The British government agreed with Linfen Yankers. Last words a British British inquiry report published in Twenty sixteen ten years. After Lithuania goes death found that Litvinenko's murder was most likely approved by a Putin himself. There can be no doubt that Alexander Litvinenko was poisoned by Lugovoi and Mr often when they could mister Lebanon Co they were acting on behalf of someone else when Mr Lugovoi positive Mr Levin Anco he did so under the direction of the F. B. The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation the inquiry. Laurie has found that the FSP operation to kill. Mr Litvinenko was probably approved by president. Putin this was a blatant and unacceptable breach of the most fundamental tenets of international law and of civilized behavior. Here's Lou carting again. We can only speculate late and I suspect the won't be written records if and when the Putin regime goes down. I didn't find a piece of paper with name on it saying kill Living Yanko Vivey Vivey Putin but but we do know that Vladimir Putin is a very peevish individual. He's extremely paranoid Mistrustful he relies on the council of a very very small group. You've of people and above all. He hates personal criticism again and again. And again we see critics of the Kremlin just ending up up dead. Sometimes it's through spectacular death like Litvinenko's poisoning other times. It's through mysterious fall or illness. In Twenty 2016 the US was subjected to a massive interference campaign in our election conducted by Russian intelligence in shortly thereafter. A lot of Russians ended up dead.

Leo & Randy On The Cabo Olympics

"Welcome to our new show what anyone can do podcast with Leo Guitar Ian Me Randy Cantrell our new show picks up where the last show show year the peer left off highlighting the simple truth at who you surround yourself with matters and that if we list the support of others give back to those who give to us and pay it forward and for the next generation we can do anything author and keynote Speaker Leo Atari I will interview a diverse group of thought leaders who will share stories and insights that will help you succeed seed business and in life how by doing the things anyone can do but most of us never will <music> <music> welcome to another episode of what anyone can do the podcast come you from Dallas Fort Worth Texas. My name is Randy Cantrell well. He is in San Diego California and he is Leo Batori. The website is his name Elliott Bay O._T.. A. R. Y. DOT COM US got big news today and big challenges and <hes> talk about leveraging the power of other people. Oh yeah well first of all. Is You know <hes> Leotard Chart Dot COM is also home to parent ovation right now so I'm real excited as you know. Of course we less podcast made announcement about what we're doing with that. <hes> you know in addition to you. <hes> you know certainly playing a big role in facilitating groups are which will be wonderful. We're also looking to look at group dynamics and the power appears to <hes> leverage learning and development inside larger companies to look at how to create better alignment engagement around strategic initiatives so that they can be that much more <hes> successful in third to continue to work with C._E._o.. And <hes> executives <hes> who are in peer groups to try to help those groups perform at even higher level and that's going to be a big focus you know for for us as well and I think within all of that will be an effort to be looked to really be exploring about the peer groups of the future. What are they going to look like? How are they going operate? Both in terms of the way people engage how they'll do it. What platforms what mechanisms we give people to between these kind of formal sessions Russians? How do we facilitate more of the peer to peer relationship that we talk about in <hes> what anyone can do so it's GonNa be real exciting and really be looking forward to put some things out there in a lot more focused way in the coming weeks so that people can really get a sense of why innovation is relevant to Tom and really look forward to the opportunity to work with folks there but <hes> on a personal front you know a lot of great stuff going on as well actually getting married the end of October Hct <hes> which is very exciting <hes> and <hes> Roxie doing it down in Kabul and we got into this conversation are of course it's not dissimilar from what we talk about in the book right in in what anyone can do the idea is that if you have a goal share it with someone else you know get other people involved in their support <hes>? Maybe they're trying to do it too right so you can help one another in Kinda see how this all works out as opposed suggests being left to your own devices and saying all right. Let's it so I think anytime anyone's preparing for wedding man woman guest whatever <hes> wedding party people you're like all right things like roughly three months away and we want to be in the best shape of our lives for this right care hold. We are what we're doing. We're just like we just I wanna you know they'll do that. So we started thinking that pretty much all of our family members who would be inclined to participate in something like S. also has have <hes> apple watches and on your Apple Watch you can share your activity so as you know this kind of movement goal and exercise goal and a stand goal <hes> and so the idea for everyone is to close all three rings every single day and make sure you're wearing your watch. <hes> your encouraging one another <hes> trash talking as necessary of course has been part of it because we have a whole you know text and we're talking about a circle of how many people well let me say. I'm GonNa you know because we're adding folks <hes> all the time heroes who were expanding <unk> circles expanding because people are saying this because let's face it. Everybody's doing more than they would do if they were just is like on their own plan gross no question about it so we have one two three four five six seven eight people involved it's <hes> so it's basically our daughters and their boyfriends and husbands and stuff like that and <hes> and I mean it's just hilarious and it's been very very fun to do so the part of it is is everyone can follow everyone else and then you can kind of see how people are doing it back on the first day. Everybody closed all three ranks of course <unk> it didn't it didn't actually play out day to that way because on Friday and Saturday. We had some folks who didn't quite <hes> inner chin the bar there so it was like okay but you know again everyone. We realize it's ninety days long so you may have some days here Amarah were you <hes>. It's a marathon it a little <hes>. Exactly we get a little lax on but again by and large everyone is like Rindt Jewett focused on it. There <hes> is the whole <hes> a group text that operates even outside of this where again people are on making various comments and trash talking and leaving various gifts if sinn all kinds of other crazy said <hes> but it makes a lot of fun and <hes> in the other part of it though there's another dynamic here which have I found out I think much to my detriment in week one excuse me so in week one you also have the ability to do one on one challenges with somebody. How I'm thanking well? Let's could be fun. I'll do a seven day challenge with <hes> my daughter Taylor Dr who always trains a lot and all <hes> you know basically half my age. You know I was all good for doing that. So so what it is is a point system that actually operates in addition to your three rings that you have to close you have points <hes> no fortunately we didn't realize it did this at first now we understand why but Max out at six hundred points a day for each person so basically a when you're each kid six hundred points you're basically tie even though when you look at the other stuff like she's basically smoked me the first two days but I I got to my threshold hold than she did as well so <hes> but it's hard to get there because getting the six hundred points is much more difficult than closing just Serie Rings and I'm like man. I can't do many of these one on one challenges. I gotTa really space about as much any day any week. I'm traveling Glenn no chance you know could or <hes> <hes> never would do two in a row. I'm only day three of this one and <hes> it's it's it's GonNa describe describe describe for those of us that may not fully understand so the closing of closing up three rings so you have a movement goal an exercise goal and you know essentially a montage you have to stand during the course of the day closing it that is achieving each of those each of those goals right so and your movement goal is associated with the calorie count and all of that and you can set your movement goal right okay so oh mine is set at seven fifty <hes> and then there's a exercise goal which everyone to set his thirty minutes and you can't adjust is that and then the third one is standing goal which is it's twelve so out of twelve hours you gotta make sure you're standing the point of that of course is that you know when we're all working in you know sitting hunched over <hes> computer and all of that they want you to get up and move and you basically you get credit for doing Level but she's in eastern time and I'm Pacific Time so obviously <hes> when it's nine o'clock her days over now I could look at her point total move I decide I want to run around the block a couple of times in my neighborhood right point total up I could I could do it and then there's no chance you get the advantage vantage of going last. I do but she also. I wake up at a deficit every day. To which is all of you know debilitating you know sitting there and looking at the the fact that I'm just trying to get up. She's already got like half the one on one challenge. Is it based on goal or is it just based on you outperforming the other person it's based on on. It's really not against anyone. It's kind of like golf. You know it's kind of against the system if you locate so we all achieve six hundred points in different ways. Maybe some of its walking. Maybe some of its cycling. Maybe some whatever so but whatever relative movement is required in order to to do this. I just know that <hes> you know sweating a lot right now and <hes> only only three day of this week challenge but we started the whole ninety day piece <hes> last Friday and we're coming up on the end of the first week and I I just will tell you though that it has been fun not only been berry. This is typically what happens with these kinds of things I mean I think everyone is going to do really wall and they'll whether they hit whatever they believed was the goal for themselves a lot. I can tell you that everyone will outperform what they would have done if they were just is left up to themselves and they weren't participating in this. There's no question about that. <hes> it's also a real unifying experience right. I mean it really brings these people together. We're having fun. We're engaging one another in conversation. Even though most of it is on text but you know we're every day there's all oh this little engagement going on and everybody is just enjoying it and having fun with that and celebrating when they do well and you're all in the together in admitting hey on not a good day. Today you know or will say. I'm doing curls right now. They'll have a beer in their hand. You know right right so but but again I think these kinds of things it's just a small example and obviously made sense. You know given the book this year that this is. This is how we would go about this. These things and it's it's fun. It's enjoyable. Everyone's pushing themselves harder as a result in this fun little things you can do any and I think the weekly challenges in many respects are are ways to celebrate small wins in the course of a ninety day piece also be doing like at the end of each week. I'll do kind of an update on kind of how everyone's doing. Congratulate everybody on the week to and just just kind of keep a bit of excitement gone because as quickly finding out ninety days is a long time on you know it's like marathon. Training Marathon. Trainings usually typically like sixteen to eighteen weeks so it's closer to four four and a half months but as we're for doing this over a three month per time it's fun also because it's not just like going out and running every day or or that we can do any any different kind of activity we want in order to you know. I think keep the variety and just have some fun with it but it caps off at six hundred which is beside the point but I'm just just on a personal challenge so it'll be so what <hes> so seven meantime six so forty two hundred points is basically what it takes to assure that you don't lose the challenge pretty much okay so technically speaking. Taylor and I think between service were not likely to fall below six hundred unless the skit sick or hit by a car or something like that because we're both you know competitive in that way we're GONNA we're. We're GONNA do that <hes> but <hes> like I said we've always acknowledged that. The tiebreaker will be looking at the data behind the six hundred points in realizing that sat at it. The count continued. I probably will lose every day of the of the challenge but when I'm hanging I said you're you're going to win but you're going to work for it now zor anybody this just kind of a bottom feeder. I'm curious about the psychology of this up. There's eight people MS MS or somebody. That's just I would think at this stage because it's early on that everybody's pretty much with the program. Nobody's Kinda fallen on have I wouldn't say fallen off. I think there are few people that are. Let's call them slower starters right. We'll be nice but <hes> but now they've they've capone off and obviously you know what is the group dynamic look like toward them. How George will those people that are kind of starting Arnav slow. I mean I get the I get the trash talking and understand the fun of that 'cause I love trash talking but so the people that are slow starters. I mean of course the group dynamic on Amick as far as urging those people to come on. Get Your Act together catch up or or is there anything like that. You know I think like any <hes> team or any any any situation or group. You're working with for some people trash talking works for other people on how much they have some fun with that but that but if you encourage encouraged him or you invited him to do a week or a weekly challenge with you you know or you did things like that to bring him along. I think there are different ways that are appears if you will and peers in in that we are all in the same contest looking at the same kind of thing with the same basic goal and <hes> yeah so pretty much works that way. You just have to get inside someone's head. What do you think's going to nudge him a little bit. What's going to you know either? Inspire them are motivated. You know I've seen an article the other day and I I hate when people use those words interchangeably by the way it's a stupid pet peeve to have but you know this idea of motivating people and motivational speakers and Blah Blah Blah. I'm like come on you know. I mean <hes> obviously <hes> you know you. Motivation can be really negative too right like you know I mean 'cause because when someone hangs punishment over your head that can be really motivating but it's not inspiring so I think as as leaders or or whether we're peers were trying to just help people in this case do what they've expressed. They want for themselves right because people are in this contest because they WANNA do they. WanNa have fun. They realized said we'll have the goal. If everyone else is doing it you know we're going to do it and you know so I think as long as we are there for each other and and that for the most part there's no there's no penalty here. There's no we're all just trying to inspire each other to just do a little more dig a little deeper and and get what everyone wants and that's they wanna look good in whatever you know soon dress wherever they wear <hes> so the wedding and and feel like that's just kind of a fun thing to do and it's Helen I would. I would guess that it's a fairly judgment free zone smack talking aside yeah yeah and a and and we do healthy reminders to that you know it's. It's no good to close all three rings. You have a diet a pizza and ice cream either but let's let's try to not you know undue balanced all the hard work that everyone had but but again. I think the larger point one of the reasons that I want talk about this first of all. I'm really proud of everyone and is when it comes to like their participation agreeing to do you wanted seeing it for the fun <hes> that it is and just trying it out you know <hes>. I think that by the time this is over. Take my Apple Watch him in a flat rock somewhere now. I I enjoy my upper watch but search but I feel like it's darkest and then turn him loose. Totally that's come up. Oh totally I I was accused of at one time because I had one one day. There was a pretty big day and someone said his German shepherd bothering out there and we get argus after some of the lally Gaga's in the <hes> <hes> in the group although people like I said I've got one <hes> kids basically and family members are Karol over there in California. They're in Colorado there in Washington D._C.. Traveling doing all this kind of stuff so <hes> and again. It's <hes> even joffe notwithstanding. It's a fun way to bring everyone together and it'll be very cool when we all see one another at the end of October and we just get <hes> hang out together and talk about you know I. I Dunno brings up a I think it brings up an important point. I don't know that we spend nearly enough tom talking about when it comes to even even professional peer kind of groups. oops and that's just the sense of community value of just of just belonging to a community is huge. You know the AH the expression misery loves company you know is is really has a lot of a lot of truth to that right. How many times have we endured something? You know what with someone else in. No one else really knows what that experience was like except you and me and all the people that were around us and there's something very unifying about that is something that it feels like yeah we went through that together. We toughed it out or we did. Whatever and you know now we're moving on but that shared experience is something that forms a real l. lifelong bond and so this this may be that way by the time this is over? This may be a kind of misery loves company KINDA. Thanks sh well but you're also creating. I mean for this for something as personal as a wedding. You're you know it's the creation is the creation of big memories that you know everybody's everybody's going to have the rest of their lives. which is a big deal? I think it's a lot of like this yeah. You know. We'll <hes> we'll take a good good group photo of the people who participated in the program. We'll we'll be a lot of fun and <hes> of course some people. Some people like to claim that they're watches aren't not really recording all of the activity of course yeah of course of course that's a common one there. There's a now this all the excuse making <hes> is there is there is there Taylor described it to someone who I think it was <hes> Maya son-in-law when he was concerned that you know now. He's doing really really well too but Taylor said well. You know if your workout isn't recording the numbers as you think it should be. Maybe we need to be working out a little harder not let him off the hook so we think sometimes in times that and I think this is brought some things delight like it so for me going to the gym for five days a week or something without is not unusual. I would God I'd kind of phone in my walkout. Do My Thang or whatever feel good about the fact that I did something I'm in but now I'm realizing that when I'm doing and this is a bunch of other people and we're all trying to achieve things to a different level. It's like for me to get <hes> to do. What I'm I'm trying to do on my stuff? It's more about to work today than one yeah and it's and it's making sure that for that time I'm there I'm really digging and working harder than and I've been so it's brought some things to lie and I think everyone has has commented on that the idea that you know I thought I was working out. I thought I was working hard now. It's it's put some context to it where I said you know what I can actually be squeezed in a little more lauren do more and by the way for the same amount of time that we're spending in many cases now again in some cases if some people are are actually working out twice a day versus one John or in some cases it may just be that <hes> somebody's hanging maybe just for a little bit longer but digging a bit deeper and the value they get from that time. It's now far greater than it ever used to be so I think all of these kinds of things are it's nomination dawn up you showing up a lot more more now. <hes> everybody showing up a lot more evidence yeah they're showing up just showing up stepping up yeah. That's the that's the thing and it's the and it's and it's awesome and I am a super fun to watch in <hes> so <hes> so so it's real exciting real kind of cool thing <hes> you know again and <hes> you know in in what anyone can do we talk about this whole notion that as Joe Henderson said back in nineteen seventy six that people who who are typically successful in whatever it is they're doing aren't capable of superhuman feats of things that none of us can do they in fact just the things that anyone can do that most of us don't and but I do think all of us are capable of surrounding ourselves with good good people who can come to a common understanding that hey we share this goal in together. If we work with each other encouraged each other give each other advice talk about how <hes> you know we're doing things and we kind of all in it together. Then we can have an incredible influence on having each of us unperformed that much better and that's what's so great fun about it and I think to your point earlier the most fun of all gold notwithstanding handing and everything else is just a dynamic creates with conversation in with a a just a true bonding experience with everyone that that's that's. That's a truly great fun wellness experienced the would not have if you guys didn't have the courage to do this. I mean think of all the missed opportunities that y'all would have. It's fun so we're we're on it. It's going to be a long slog every once in a while in a small hallway. I'll kind of report on <hes> what we're doing because audience here too that I have to consider you know part of the part of the team we know so I got a you know yeah you put it out their personal responsibility for <hes> known here and <hes> go from there but but <hes> but anyway <hes> so <hes> I know you probably only have a couple more slots left with the <hes> <hes> groups. You're trying to put together right now. So I would just say really encourage anyone who's listening out there who is really interested in believes they could would benefit from being in a Business Pacific <hes> peer group this is basically largely <hes> the people who are running their companies than I think is randy likes to describe not sitting in the ivory tower running their company but real operators and people oh who share that challenge of being in the business and yet trying to early be able to pull back and reflect and be thinking about the future future and be thinking about all the things that are coming ahead and how important that is for everyone to be in a place were they can sit around table with other people who share that common challenge who can share and learn from one another and help each other grow so <hes> definitely would encourage folks out there listening that that's something of interest to you. You should be reaching out to Randy Randy. What's the best way you how you'd like them to get to you? Directly directly on this you can find everything you need by going to the pier advantage dot com the period vantage dot com spells spells everything hang out and you know you talked before. These are just conversations that I'm having to see if this is a good fit for them. If it's a good fit for me for this group <hes> if you've read Leo's other book the power of peers you know the right people in the room is a is a big deal and so this yeah this. This group is <hes> it's S._M._B.. Folks <hes> you know the there's no real dollar range. There's no head count on of a thing I I would tell you that that some of the folks are are vastly larger than I initially thought I'm I might would attract which is fine but we've all got got. We've all got. We've all got stuff to learn so yeah. These are these are operators. These are people that are that are in it close to the customers even closer to the employees as I kind of say you know what I find really interesting is. I've <hes> been part of and spent a lot of time with groups where where you had a lot of people who are running burn mature businesses and other people who are in earlier stage with their company and both can learn from one another you know the more mature companies can recapture a little bit about that entrepreneurial spirit put them where they are keeps them abreast of of what's next I you know in a lot of different areas and at the same time you know when we think about scaling businesses in various stages of that <hes> some some of the mature companies can be incredibly <hes> you know the leaders of those companies can be incredibly beneficial to the entrepreneurs talking about doc some of the things that you've got to put in place in order to create <hes> some real stability around the organization and like your group you like your community. It's <music>. There's there's there's room for everybody. Get on his the great thing like our conversations have been about teams versus groups. You know the the group the individual pursuits and yet there's something really cool about the community I mean all of your people in your in your circle there your fitness circle or they've all got their our own goals and objectives that they're all trying to achieve yeah right now. I'm just trying to survive my week one to one challenge here but <hes> it after Taylor. I take a few weeks off like I said one said second week off cause some travel but then I've got to get my daughter Kristin air my Law Press and <hes> you know and we'll get you know get around all over. Noel and you know everyone else who's part of this whole. <hes> you know. Andy <hes> we got a an amazing group of <hes> people who are younger than us yeah and and <hes> everyone doing fun things in Kristen of course <unk> daughter Kristin Ri- you know two kids Nora and ban right so you've got your just over to Ben you know before on the four or five month plan right now and <hes>. It's it's April first I so yeah yeah <hes> crazy. You know still got. You still got what's left. I mean as far as we hit the record button. Today is the last day of July but there's still some summer left and you still got a road busy part of the year. I have a lot more summer left than some people. That's <hes> yeah. That's for sure yeah. I think <hes> for Taylor shoes travelling but she's in D._C.. So for her it gets tough because a lot of what she does which is really smart if she just walks everywhere right so when you're walking everywhere in DC I I'm basically said the money I'm saving on gas already for me doing this because I'm trying to walk everywhere too because that's what really helps you a lot but <hes> yeah but when she starts it in the wintertime that Watkins not couldn't fill role how badly although the thing by the end of October so she's yeah that bad N._B._C. but that point but but <hes> but anyway <hes> yes so for <hes> for me just the end of the for the rest of the month. I've got <hes> trip to Denver <hes> due to speak to a group do one of my workshops. They're doing one in Memphis which is which is an inside group inside of the <hes> organization. Were we talking to cross Functional Award Team Narrow. Welcome with them which would be fun and that had saw uh speaking at the executive growth alliance summit in Oslo in the twenty eight of 'em really excited about that. Executive Growth Alliance is this kind of systems thinking meets the power appears and it's amazing to bring people together who really take that you view from the Balcony as William Yori likes to likes to say <hes> but figure out how they can work together in ways where they bring everyone <hes> who's part of US Pacific ecosystem. Let's say transportation for example right and they get them working on some of the larger issues so instead of each part of the the ecosystem trying to do their own individual thing to deal with whatever they like. You know what we can work together on this. We create something that is going to be less expensive zip for us and more beneficial to the customer right and how great is that when you've got people who understand the the power of that so <hes> the this whole thing is basically was piloted. Norway think a lot of their culture has to do with why such a terrific country three to begin this wet and it will expand <hes> through Europe South Africa into the U._S.. I would say maybe in a few years so <hes> <hes> you know maybe to Asia but <hes> certainly just met her when <hes> but I think what Jennifer vessels is doing <hes> is really exciting and I think anyone who wants a taste of what this is going to be about an his inner around Europe or if you're in Europe listening to this <hes> program and <hes> coming to Oslo on August twenty eighth for the executive growth lines summit in it's easy enough to find <hes> online <hes> maybe you put a link in the show notes on that and <hes> but I think it'd be really worthwhile for people to see something that I think is really going to be a sight to see. I think it's GonNa be really powerful so <hes> I wanna be excited to hear how how your trip goes. Let me make let me make a pitch here for future future upcoming guest ooh yes Brian Solis. We've been a bit back and forth <hes> as as much my fault as is is is any in terms of just trying to get a good date and time together. We absolutely will have on on the show. Both of us have read the book. It's a terrific book. Look I did a thing recently where I was asked to identify my favorite book of all time when it's like we'll forget that I mean I the I've been so fortunate like all of us. I think to read so many amazing books. I'm not gonNA single went on over the other but I did pick to that. I've read most recently that I really enjoyed -joyed and it was late bloomers by rich guard and life scale by Brian Solis. I think both are excellent and I think both certainly spoke to me and I think also also spoke to a lot of our work and I think <hes> really informs. <hes> you know a lot of us. I mean it's just really really great great work and those worthy of the name of the book. The name of the book is life scale how to live a more creative productive and happy life by Brian Solis and there's here's what the book looks like there we go. That's a compelling.

We had an amazing show last hour with Dr Betty MARTINI. We have links up by the way provide customized for calls. In fact, if you want to detach master tame, I have basically three or four layers I layers to detox body to improve your detox pathways get rid of free radicals and second layers to actually use technologies including infrared sauna Selvi, though, Matt and full-time sound b-but sonic way, including Tomek Posner frequencies, and the third veve is actually Ivy and other therapies that we can use if necessary what people should understand hyperbaric oxygen treatments. What people should understand is our world is very toxic toxic information. Just before the break, you mentioned when you're talking to Todd that a lot of the information, even in the alternative media is I I call the four categories much of it. Seventy five eighty percent is probably information or misinformation, even the alternative so-called conspiracy categories. The regular news is basically useless except for a few small bright lights here. And there where they've tried to costings like Tucker Carlson on on on Fox News. But he even has red lines won't cross. I'm sure he's probably not like the invite either you are on solo. I'm trying to contact them to see if I can get him to actually bring us on there. We need to get contact with President Trump and some of his visors. He's woefully short of information. Now, you know, you might think of the man is he's an amazing businessman. He's also been pretty tough to survive the persecution of last two years. He is doing some right things. He's also screwing up royally. And there isn't as he's got bad advisers. Most of them are globalist like peanut or CFR etcetera. He also, although his vise at business. One thing you learned from his father's to be blue hat, or we call a blue-collar billionaire get down there in the trenches work when the steel workers Glazer's, and so on he needs to be down here in the trenches and talk to people like you and either actually been to hell to know the truth. We know like you were the first floor for the first whistle blower for the first Cuban missile crisis and the Grenada crisis. I work with the FBI and CDC females at rhino. What's going on inside the government? I work with projects including special delta force. What I want people understand is. I took care of the employee's work on a missile defense that it's right sands missile base and Vanderberg, and we don't have to my extent a sufficient men and missile defense from either cyber hacking EMP from crawl massive section or an MP weapon that can be launched near space. You could simply launch misled one hundred thousand feet three hundred miles off the coast. Nobody who knows you know, you're there you can get a fishing boat. We have an Ampere burst. And we're not to power grid on both coasts before you know, it you have a country consuming itself and cannibalism violence, and devastation and dehydration people. Don't know this. They don't realize civilization as hanging by a thread, just like the prophets it over one hundred years ago that the constitution's hanging by the Mormon church. No, the Mormon church is been captured by the Rothschild's Rockefeller's after they made mis statement and got involved with the with the sugar plantation Hawaii. And now pretty well every organization on earth and every religion on earth is completely consumed and controlled by the global Sopher agenda. That includes the right end left, which is why they're persecuting Trump and Trump needs are advice. I mean, if Trump could sit down for half an hour on the phone with you me, and my top advisors. We would be his Samuel council like the high priest talked to king dive you'd to get back on track after he killed your Ryan and took his wife would get back on track to deal with. Border to deal with immigration to deal with international trade deal with missile defense to deal with toxic food to deal with the craziness of the five G network. Acidify broaddrick everywhere in the country. I wanna see the rise of the foam boastful, people can talk conversations privately ran walking around or being restaurant talking openly about private matters with have no business doing that. I think it's an obscenity. And what I wanna see I wanna see some rationality to our politics rather than the politicians like the Democrats they're so ravenous repower a drug addict the next hit. They don't care what the American population people dying homeless people can't afford healthcare. They could care less whether the these even these immigrants coming from Central America escaping drug cartels, which we won't kill the cartel chiefs or some of the richest people in the world and also our agencies like sad, special activities division of conjunction with fast areas of the bomb in ministration and that are directly collaborating because. There's two trillion dollars for your just for the drug trade. Let alone the organ trade in human trade making money. So they can actually do weird projects like deep underground military bases genetic engineering off WorldSpace project, etc. And people say, well, Dr deal, you're making all it up your conspiracies areas, I have more knowledge than you can imagine. If I opened the full fire hose, your brain would burst. Okay there and people don't have the Kahan as to dare to call into my show and disagree. They just wanna do at hominem attacks. I once in a while get cards from these idiots, I'm thinking I care about you, even if your infant intellectually inferior, I cannot fly at the speed of light. But I am intellectually and spiritually superman, and I want people to understand that I'm not here by my own sake. By the way, I receive unbelievable persecution from relatives. Friends colleagues the regulatory authorities, etc. And the government threatening to kill me for knowing the truth, including back in Oklahoma City. And I'm sick and tired of it. I want to understand. You need to understand. You cannot kill the message by killing the messenger. And that means we need to get this message Donald Trump because our nation is about to jerk Kushner signed a treaty in the Middle East which will back off temporarily Russia and China, but it won't stop the danger of lowered Sheila island or Kalingrad in Europe or anything else, including biological and chemical and scaler space-based weather weapons, which by the way, Russia also has that can destroy our nation, even without news, people don't get this. Do they they don't get the best hackers in the world of the Russians their mathematical geniuses, and sort of the Chinese, you know, they have over a quarter million. And Jan Jan China in eastern China. Blue was scully's Jan blue cyber army in China that actually are hackers into our power grid system, including air traffic, controllers power grid, even our sewage feet plants people know this stuff, do they. No, they don't Dr deal and part of the dilemma if I may go back to what you were saying earlier about us being able to meet with President Trump, one of the demos dilemmas that we face now, which I believe you brought out at least three weeks ago. Right. Is they have hired Elliot Abrams as their special envoy for Venezuela. And people forget that he was the key architect of the Iraq war which is scam. Remember, remember, the I call Colin Powell, I call them Cole. I Colin Powell I call him bow these s-h-i-t I mean to God the end destructive schwinn ice cream truck. And they've said it had biological some other weapons. These people are not what he did have Dom had Gerald bull super can't which by the way, we apprehended. Joe Bill was a munitions. Expert to work multiple countries, including Britain and Canada, his probably the most Brian munitions expert in the world and lasts half million half thousand years. Developed the most advanced system for linear accelerator tubes to put something like a tailed into space or fire plasma rockets, and and Saddam Hussein had this Saddam Hussein also had other types of weapons including violence weapons. We gave him couldn't he weaponized answer action from the from for Michigan. Okay. And I threatened actually do testing and some of the people that were my patients back in the mid nineties at at at the in Colorado Springs that came back after getting these weaponized super anthrax vaccines, and they were ruined. Their health was ruined. Threaten to say eagle. If you do testing on a more testing on their dead body parts exposure depleted uranium you'll be fired or worse than I said. What's worse is dead is what major swinder you're gonna repent of that before you go home tonight or you're not gonna put your socks on tomorrow morning, bud. And guess what he did? Because guess what? I'm not exactly past people say, why aren't you dead like other alternative doctors because there's a side to eagle that. Literally, scares the devil. Okay. I'm not exactly Mr. passive, and you wanna mess with me. Sorry fell. I had one guy last year when we came on with shows joss Bernstein, and I got his actual name on Facebook and actually threaten to shovel gun down my throat. Let me tell you buddy, you come to mind town or city threaten me or trying to cause harm. I'm gonna raise an appointment to meet Jesus because you're going to die. You're not going to survive. It you try to harm me and my family you're going to die. All right. It's not going to be like you're going to go to trial and all the stuff done. Oh, you try physical violence against me. And my family it's going to be violent that you'll be exposed to. And it'll be exotic you won't see a common either because I haven't mastered unto technology, and I want people understand this. If I have to spread this technology, my fellow Americans to make sure the global league can't get their way. I will. I will let me tell you. There's nobody more dangerous on earth. That's why the Pindar twenty seven years ago visited eagle to become his under- study. Because he wanted me to take over his position as Pindar. Of the druid council and takeovers position. When he ascended physically visited me so you have to understand I'm not a minor player in this. I want people understand I think people would that deserve respect John w spring seriously and President Trump better damn well or the American public will die and up to three hundred million will die and hours. Once there is a final breakdown of the so-called treaty that we're going to have in the Middle East with Jared Kushner is couplets Warlock son-in-law signing because it's only gonna hold back the the winds of destruction for day an hour, they'll say three and a half years. And then God help us when it breaks because it will break Islam and the globalist will not tolerate this Willie. Well, they won't. They won't Dr Bigham. And Russia and China, by the way, they would rather than we work out a peace arrangement. So we can have trade in Russia can actually have an economy there. Probably biologically historically, natural allies the supported us during the American revolution. They supported us during the the the the break with with Britain at Russia would be a natural ally. That's probably by the British decided to take down and destroy with the Bolshevik revolution. Which was sponsored only by the British by the Vatican. They're ball actually destroyed the road the the Romanovs and brought in the godless atheists to kill the first group that killed by the way, we're god-fearing Jewish people. The people of the book, the rabbis the rabbinical council, and the the believing or Russian Orthodox church leaders were the first to die weren't they? Yeah. People don't get this. They don't really they don't realize they forget history. So because it says an historical books enrollment stray and says those who forget history are doomed to repeat it, aren't they? I think shortage Sunday on but. Yeah, exactly. But he's repeating a statement by nature almost during college. I think is Tacitus I'm trying to remember the wrong history said the same thing. Yes. That goes back to. Yes. Yes. Get into your latest your latest statements. You have usually bring on at least one or two or three letters a week. And I want you, by the way, I want you to we're going to be pushing this up in video afterward on YouTube. But I wanna get this up to Trump. I'm desperately trying to get hold of some Trump's family winters, Larra Trump or Trump junior whatever we need to get suited to Donald Donald needs to have us is set before. And I'm gonna say it again and people think what you're just arrogant eagle norm. Not I'm willing to die for the truth. And I will die for the truth. Okay. I want to realize that I wanna say people much from physical destruction and death and misery, but spiritual n-i-l-l-a-s because those were not saved Godwilling islet, you okay, not the devil devil's gonna pervert you in short in your physical life, but the dead, but God himself is a crater. And he is also the destroyer people get that do they? No, they don't. They just think that they can doing whatever they please and life is gonna go on. There's going to be an end to it. And a lot of these people think they're going to have they're going to have another party. They're gonna have you know, hot drinks in hell with the flip Wilson. Same Davis junior story to ruin near your day, but it's not gonna happen. And you know, that's why it says in the bible wold you with your see for the devil has come down to short as grains as rasp because NASA's knows his days are numbered. He is going to be annihilated. Even if his round for Troy years, the devil who's learning confounded, probably galaxies, not just earth and planets this beast of being the superbeing will be the super scientists and super technologist and prince of the power there will be destroyed and people don't understand that the God is going into all the human race. We're going to become the ever lasting bride of God. And that transition period is going to be very painful the birth. Pangs are both the start happening. Vera been into delivery room, you'd better have your plex because it's going to be a lot of screaming. The problem is people aren't screaming for the truth yet. If Trump no exactly what you, and I know he would be begging to have time to talk to us. But he's not God help us if Trump Trump and the people around him and the globalist around them do not listen God help the human race because human race is doomed without the intervention of God's through people like ask as canoed himself. But you know, when you always wants he wants to grace to be operations through his body to his people like you and me telling the truth on air telling face to face. That's what he wants God wants us to become his ever lasting, Brian. The only way to do it. Stop rate in the will and the intention of God is the only way to do. Good is to God. And adds an extras all to making. Load adding extra. We're gonna get into the next segment. How late the hour is with a very dangerous time here with Jared. Kushner's raise the sign this treaty Russia and China just raise you do whatever they can.

Triple eight two two eight seventy one. And welcome back. You mentioned a very interesting term from the ninety days at the Russians developed call the mach Schnell tactics. Can you expand on that? And we have also going on in during the Kerala Brignoli bishops recalled, but it's been a lot of people killed in local protests going on Nicaragua, which is totalitarian state directly allied with Russia. What's going on? Well, d- Daniel Ortega has been able to survive for decades. Now this goes back to the nineteen eighty three. Nicaraguan missile crisis. Which was the main reason why we invaded Grenada. Because of what was then also in construction, and we were able to get to President Reagan is administration of little things are gratitude, but we were able to finally convince them that they they had to invade that island of for for the same reason that a similar very long air triple is being constructed on Nicaragua at Punta quit taste, which is on the northeastern edge of lake Managua north of the capital city Managua and the sole purpose of these was to have these long airfields that could accommodate the a in twenty four the ants enough Rousselin. Giant air transports, which could bring in not only a mobile missile launcher, fully integrated was control panels and everything else. But also several intermediate range ballistic missiles armed with nuclear warheads. Fifteen minutes after the jet lands after this big Lance jet lands their operational immediately. Aren't they? Yes. And that this was was nineteen eighty three or early nineteen eighties technology, and they've made a few improvements since then Dr deal, and even though they lost Grenada back in the year two thousand nine they were able to acquire access to lowered she island and people don't realize that construction began as early as two thousand ten by the Russians to make a very long runway on that small island for the sole purpose of two things basically as a stopover refueling point for having the air transports continue onto onto wet. And also because it is in line lunch. Tuden Lee with the eastern seaboard missiles could be. Fired from that location. But one thing we need to understand this is why also by the way obviates. The problem was called the corona the loss of a guidance. In other words, coming over the North Pole the poll, they lose guidance control. But if it's wrecking so's the seaboard, it means it's easy to hit our major naval base for nuclear submarines and ships, the capital, Washington, DC, New York City and all these seaboard, which is a major population center of America with over ninety five million two hundred million Americans. Yes, what people need to understand is as you just pointed out, Dr Daego because of the Coriolis of affect it is far more accurate to fire a missile from either the Caribbean or Central American at the United States, and and because of low or Cheetos island location, which is further west than the Grenada. It's. Almost in perfect alignment with the eastern seaboard to the point that it can be fired with the even greater accuracy. No deviation at all from the Coriolis effect and. In a matter of minutes. Now as you pointed out several times on this program. We have satellite imagery technology, which can be ticked nuclear missiles in any part of the world at and at any depth. But with this technology or strategy that they have developed which called muck Schnell the nuclear weapons are only there at the lunch points for only a brief period of time. And so by the by the time the technician realizes that there are nuclear weapons on lunch or geo island or at punahou. They they will already be fired on the way to Washington Chicago. And even here on the west coast. Understand that and see we have multiple layers. We have cyber attacks. The Russians are probably the most fiscally cybernetic tech Tang tattoo technicians in the world even more than Chinese. They can do a cyber attack on our power grid or or air traffic controllers meaner sewage treatment plants power grid. But they can simply do any MP weapon. Don't have to hit the cities if I was going to plan a strategy is being the Russians first thing as I do I tempt to do disrupt air, traffic control. I before I would fire off in ham p based lower Sheila island nuclear weapon, not to strike the military bases, but knuckled power good. Once they poked on her is within poco, the is in space because the Russians and the Chinese worked on satellite killing super satellites and ground based systems once doctor LT satellite-based systems, do not get a counterstrike against Russia and cities and towns or to see where things are coming from an identifying decided went to activator. Missile defense systems because the multiple layers not only in the do line across Canada, etc. But also others the next layer. I would do is I would actually hit military basis with EMC weapons that I make a phone call to the president safe. You don't want your cities to be destroyed surrender as feeling that this is plan by globalist because they want America this run true. Global order now, the Russians themselves are terrified that we all have counterstrike. So what they wanted to see if they can knock on her counterstrikes system. So the Russians and the Chinese and now others, especially the Chinese have actually been researching into cell like killing weapon systems, and what Trump is talking about is the space force. He needs to get a little bit more with it. The most deadly thing is to have weapons completely protects against incoming nuclear weapons. Harder. Power was Dr Pye who works for the special counsel was set long before we've back in the days of Reagan. So we would have plasma lines power. Just bution substations. And wish transformers we need to start transitioning to regional power backup systems. So we don't we have power stabilization with storage. My my nephew actually develop the power good stabilization transformers. He had his PHD in plasma fix it at seventeen from Princeton University and about the first system for storing power Kim, je watts of power in underground storage containers, using compressed air and selling them all over the world. Okay. With major corporations when you have to understand here is there some people in my family that are unusually smart, and my my my niece is actually one of the smartest of their. She actually was able to develop this technology by the time. She was in her late teens, so what people need to start understanding what's going on here. Now is we're jocking and because Russia has been at odds with America because of the two and a half years of the Mueller gate. Trump has not been able to try to negotiate with Putin try to to take an enemy and tournament. We potential collaborator among saying friend yet, but a collaborator on business and on trade unannounced also nuclear defense, which by the way, Ronald Reagan suggested with the root foundation that we should share missile defense. So no human being should be in danger of being destroyed by missile or advanced biological chemical or scaler weapon or space-based weather weapon. That's the problem is we don't have a defensive earth strategy for all life forms in humanity on the planet. As result, any rogue nation with even a small number of nukes, or weather, modification or hacking technology could destroy major nations and people think will you can't do that. Look. I'm smart enough. I could develop a bioweapon for thousand bucks who could destroy most of the people in America. Now, if I can do that mention how many people are smart, also smart as me could do that where you scanner technology your hack into the power grids and bring it down in the population will eat itself alive and my own FAI documents. I have from both the Australian Canada and United States for almost twenty years. Now as said that ninety percent of the population will be dead in six months. If just the power good goes up little on all the other layers disaster that could strike so the problem is Larry cheated island. These are the most immediate because the launch on warning danger is narrowing used to twenty to thirty minutes is down to a few minutes. Now. So we don't even know what's coming worth the knock older space-based warning systems. We're going to launch and everybody's going to die in the planet itself will die. That's what's happening. And we're gonna clear winter. We'll have just prince of the ozone layer and most of the biosphere will disappear Plassey ability to convert carbon. Back show auction. So the magnetometer will collapse, and we'll have any major disaster even going outside. We'll burn you and kill you almost instantly people. Don't know this do they know now Dr Dido, I respectfully believe that. You're. Theory. Could be the one that they use. But there is a more brutal alternatives that I think we. Layered Syria, agrees. That's that's the layer three, but they may just launch. I mean, do they need acts this the Russians the Russians by the way to the simulation October fifth 2017 as shortly after Donald Trump got elected, and they actually dissimulation with one quarter of their population. Forty million simulating a nuclear war with the west was Europe in America, the average American Russian citizen, but it told by our TV's told her waiting for the date when America tries to nuke Russia. That's why for example, these so-called Joint Strike Fighter. And I know the engineer designed it is not a Joint Strike Fighter. It's a stealth bomber was raiders sure of a bird to fly mach two to two and a half and bringing payload of sixty six hundred kilograms of highly radioactive nuclear material and very accurately. Target cities towns military bases. Russia has twenty seven hundred plus of these and they're now in refurbishment under Donald Trump by not only us put our allies. In fact, we stop saw them to Turkey constrict. He's not playing with us because our ally in NATO Turkey Hannity's these joint strike fighters. People on realize it we have a lot of these are not just us. -ociety ravens have them. These rallies have them, and they can fly in and stealth bomb the crap out of a country, and they wouldn't even know what hits them they have. No warning because we're coming in with these raiders of a bird. They're not gonna show is thermal signature of satellite or missile launch. Whatever they're just going to see all of a sudden, they're sky, turn purple. And all of a sudden, there's radio bursts. EMP and an X rays in their cities dissolve learning. That's what's going to happen. People say, oh, no. That won't happen. I said, well, no wonder they're paranoid. It should be parents. Right by by the way, this is not really related what we were just discussing but Turkey does have the license to manufacture these stinger surface air missile and because. Stake also the Abrams tank, right? But one reason why I still believe duck to eagle that you know, probability. It will be a nuclear rather than EMP is that the work started on the construction of this airfield back in two thousand and ten after they had reached an agreement with the Venezuela and the two thousand and nine and there was also a revamping activity going on at Poona foot. They in Venezuela in which Vladimir Putin visited during a photo op. So. During that same period of time. So it is my belief that Putin is still using the the nineteen eighty plan which led to advance upon the Andrew PA plan. Correct. And and and therefore for that reason, I believe that is is our is to completely obliterate and destroy the entire United States. I think he's a mad, man. And I think, unfortunately, he he's been misdiagnosed as a moderate someone that you can work with and. We can see the evidence of that. I mean, look at how you see some of his his functionaries and trying to fight him end up radioactive polonium or the prison. I mean, he's just recently passed a law to get rid of fake news fake, news, anybody that criticizes Putin. That's why I've changed his name to Rasputin is a devil. He's a monster. And people don't get it. Makes the monsters rice top, he's not a tall monster. But he's a bad one. And he doesn't drink vodka completely manic. This guy is completely out of control.

John immediacy of this situation is very serious. We've had two and half years of distraction by the Democrats, and what was on the right because remember now both Republicans in house and Senate actually made in voted against Trump and even the border issues. What is your by the way, not just Mexicans central Americans is people fifty countries, including terrorists, there's ten thousand plus terrorist cells from Islam inside America for to actually live ammo. I know actually some of the locations of them one. Just let's nuclear the city of New York. They call the Islamabad. I think the caller some this. It's like three outside New York City. Well that Pakistan, but one. Older sounds like bad, but it's similar. It's like a little actual site. Reno side New York City, which is a multi acre like hundred acres of actually a terrorist chain site. We have say New York City. What people interested to understand is Trump is trying to do something, right? He's screwing up a lot. He's distracted findings during to actually punch back against the media. I wanna see the Huber and the Horwitz reports come out, and I wanna see Barr says started to prosecute the investigators started Mueller and this report with eleven points and say that you know, he didn't collude, but maybe he tried to obstruct or sold enraged. He told some people the you want to fire different people would have been considerable struck shin. And now these idiots inside the inside the Democratic Party. You're talking about impeachment. In fact, now, there's a counter thing we talked about this last hour on first hour with Gary Franci. About the factors. Actually as a sponsor now to actually impeach AFC. This. Maniac along with the other Muslims. They're like Ilha Ilhan, Omar and others that what have no peach moment of Donald Trump. What they're doing is. They're not just the paralyzing. The office of the president wouldn't matter who's in their democrat Republican became through the business of protecting the nation because they're so distracted by these internal attacks. And if Trump was able to visit with us a half hour a week, and maybe visit with you for here about the missile defense systems and other issues need to be dealt with how to fix healthcare with to total socialized system crashes system do because back of of hospitals and doctors destroy insurance carriers cetera. People don't understand that what's going on here as meddlesome globalist Folsom left and right are making us in defenseless against nuclear missiles defenses against you can chaos and fences against an invasion that wants to make permanent democratic totalitarian controlled by bunch of social globals atheist Satan us, and that's what it is. When they're trying to. What infanticide and pulls, you know, birth abortion infanticide. You have to understand it. What's going on here? This is the end of the road even abortion ninety three percent of abortions wouldn't do what these of a ninety cent a first trimester versus when do late term but legislators like this doctor, and these people in Virginia and elsewhere are pushing for an all the Democratic Party every one of them are pushing for infanticide and late-term abortion to the moment of delivery, even after you don't criminal and criminal van criminal. I call them the the we'd really in other words the. The unborn humans that are now conceived. And if we totally criminalize abortion should be criminalized. And by the way, one of my previous passers was the product of rape, and incest, and this man was one of the most wonderful people you've ever met the child in commit crime. The parents did and shop shouldn't be killed. It's not part of the body of the mother. They wanna say it's the mother's body. It's not is genetically distinct is different human being as potential growth. Maybe at some future date. We could transplant that baby to an artifice uterus and grown. Elsewhere would be have other adoptive parents. But right now, we can't do that. When someone gets pregnant these women actually, eventually going to lose their ability to control pregnancy and human race will find it irrelevant. Have women women will become relevant when you can have genetically engineered human race with a pair of becomes a state and Planned Parenthood becomes Planned Parenthood. Not because they are boarding. But because they're the birthing centers for all the human race say twenty or forty years from now that twenty or forty years go by. Redan quickly and people don't get that. Do they? No, they don't talk to go. They don't. But I'm not, and you can't attack me and get away with it. Okay. You can't identify dare you to call in or even Email or try to contact me. And don't treat me. It's suicide stupid thing threatened. Dr dig I'll okay, I want you to understand you are going to listen now or the judgment seat, but you're going to Dan what listen that includes Donald Trump, we need to get sort of the man now is still president or we're going to beat him at the judgment seat of the most high God. And he's going to have to answer questions to God will ask, you know, John w Springer deal get over here. What did you say on air? And did you try to get through this van with emails Twitter quad cast, videos, whatever did you not listen, that's what I'm concerned about. Because in the balances, not only the America. But also the human race. We're in the balance, aren't we? Yes, we are. Now. I I don't know if they said this on the air or not, but I did speak briefly with you. I believe off the are about mach Schnell. Expand on that. Go ahead. This is actually a German term, which means to take action very quickly. There's there's many versions of it. Like hurry up or mach Schnell. But it is something that happens very quickly in a relatively short period of time. Right. And as I believe we may have said on the air of already America does have the technologies through satellite imagery to detect nuclear weapons at any depth or locations throughout the world. But the problem, but the problem with the strategy that the Kremlin has developed. Is is is not that sophisticated. It's just a different enough that apparently the wannabees in in Washington have not quite figured out. It was ever publicized during the regular administration. According to the Reagan ministry ministration there never was a Nicaraguan missile crisis. We just invaded Grenada for the benefit of the medical students. After I. Because I worked inside the government. I know what's going on with FEMA. And and and the scene FBI. I know they're fully aware they're aware of things and what I call the number that movie with the shining move with shining years ago twenty years ago, this is a dance with the devil. That's why turn on TV even Fox News. I'm so disgusted by the news. Just Rams fading over and over again about the Miller report, there's no collusion, but they're still obstruction. It's the same thing. This is dance with the devil. Our military must know, for example, communication with melter here in San Diego, and is actually miltary reports come out and say, we should not build super carriers or these large floating targets, we need to build advanced systems in order to actually nocco not just like the the phalanx system which developed and combat Canada was, you know, thousands of rounds per second that kid coming this'll or his hit the incoming torpedo. We need torsion field. Gravitons force field blocking technology. We need to have. Systems that can knock it out with high energy plasma weapons like tests death-ray, the fact is I know the guys were working at this white sands missile base. And exactly what the technology is the litter your salary use plasma the fact is we haven't done this. We have testing left we have the technology. But we haven't expanded are deployed it. And the same thing goes with even EMP protection against their power. We're sitting ducks, and we know we're sitting ducks yet, we're seven hundred billion dollars in the military to put weapons this. I wanna rechange the name is sort of a department of defense. We should call an apartment of offense murder and war, and what we're doing is refunding the other side. So when they attack us, we don't have defense raw gonna die. It's like that that song Lee had you know, when the black death game flashes ashes, we all fall down. That's what's going to happen. Ring around the roses. Pocket. Hola posies ashes ashes we all fall down. And that's what's going to happen and the Russians note the Chinese. No, it they realized we're heading toward a cataclysm. And we're not far off. We're less than a decade. I don't wanna put a date on it. But I can tell you once this treaty assignment in the Middle East. The clock is going to go dick tick tick, and when that happens halfway through that Trump hundred twenty five hundred and twenty days so that seventy or pre it's going to stop the sacrifices stopping young keyboard after the feast of this call Sakata starts to seventy or treaty by rabbinic law and thirty days later shot happens. And that's when war breaks up war, the dissolves. The ozone layer war. That destroys a biosphere ward of the causes super weather and Sonam is worthy causes coastal destruction and super waves, and so on warded causes destruction the food supply, the EMP will blow the power all the hell at war, the causes masturbation. Cannibalism people say, oh that won't happen. Let me tell you if I was actually writing. A script for movie set for a movie, you think all these b movies and other movies are bad. I put together a script. It would scare the hell out of the devil himself. I can tell you see what's coming and people don't wanna believe this all that won't happen. I'm thinking it's guaranteed to happen. If God doesn't intervene, and he's gonna intervene. People like us say, you know, we want missile defense, not only for us, but for the Russians and Chinese and North Koreans. We wanna make these weapons impotent. We wanna make sure that the population to safe from hacking into our power grid or even our air traffic controllers the Russians have been hacked in a few years ago. You know that they hacked into air traffic controller stations the Russians. Did did you know that? It's been going on. Where are you? Yes. Yeah. You're you're wear of that. And as long people aren't aware of these things they say, well, that's not in the news. Well, got classified and supernatural sources in my latest, visions. I'm having the Russians since we're not doing a dancing lowered. She livened or Nicaragua there. Now only getting even more weapons to Callan grad because the they're big enemy is Europe Europeans as actually becoming a potential nuclear threat. Now, aren't they? Especially since the I n f Trump withdrew from because the Russians have been violating it for years. And they're violent hit, by the way. In response was sitting up some of the Clinton ears the Strike Fighter which is Vicky way to completely get rid of ground base intermediate range nuclear missiles have stealth bombers bomb that crap out of another country, and they won't even see them coming. So the Russia's they while you're gonna violate we're going to remember the Russians are part Mongolian and red haired, you know, eastern if you wanna call Nordic peoples either not passing people, you're not gonna crush them and expect to get away with it, are you? All right, then they've already gone through. Hell we actually did hell the British and the Vatican destroyed one hundred million Russians, and how many how big would rush should be not hundred and sixty million if those hundred million people weren't killed over the last century with feet pogroms probably be able to your four hundred million people in Russia now wouldn't there? I'd say close to a half a billion billion would be a big damn country. They'd be the size of Europe in population. But they're not. And so what I see coming is bad, really bad and the Russians are no slouches man, scientifically these guys are geniuses. Big advance scaler technologies face base, whether technology advanced hypersonic cruise missiles, there even being rebutted warriors. And I've seen the actual models of the damn things. All my gosh. You wanna get into battle with a forty foot tall remotely operated Russian warrior one where there's a warrior inside the super robot. I mean, you see these movies out. Now won't you know, these big machines on the battlefield. Let me tell you. You don't need to have a whole lot of these to take out a whole army. Yeah. Well, that's your deal. I hope that our listening audience heeds are warning and five. Participant. Make contact the president on our behalf because there's someone at the White House. Obviously that doesn't like you or me and just possible. Truth. Well, for example, I just had I had on the show here. Gordon Chang from North Korea the nuclear shoes, and they coming claps and his wife flatly said, well, no he can't come on your show. I know why they hacked by name if you hack my name, you're gonna say there's no way when I go on show. He's gonna ask me questions. I don't want to answer. So I had him on from one single weeks ago. He's terrified to come back. But guess what? The choose has to come out or a nation will die and human race.

The First Show From the New Studio! (Hour 1)

The Dave Ramsey Show

40:40 min | 1 year ago

The First Show From the New Studio! (Hour 1)

"Live from the headquarters of Ramsey solutions the new headquarters of Ramsey Solutions Russians broadcasting from the new dollar car rental studios. It's the old Dave Ramsey. Show where debt is still dumb. Cash is still king and the paid off home mortgage has still taken the place of the B._M._w.. As the status a symbol of choice well that is the opener for the very first show of the Dave Ramsey show in our new studios studio inside of our Ramsey Solutions Headquarters and we're honored to have you guys listening listening to us but most of all were honored to get to do this <hes> one month ago. We celebrated our twenty seventh year on the air. This is July the twenty third on June. The twenty fifth was our first date broadcast in one thousand nine hundred ninety two on a bankrupt radio station. The entire radio station cost less than this room yeah irony of ironies and I went on as a guest a few times on that broke radio station and <hes> The guy doing the show is being paid thirty five dollars and they were in chapter eleven bankruptcy he'd been paying thirty five dollars per show and they didn't pay him one week and he quit because he wasn't getting his thirty five dollars <hes> <hes> and so a friend of mine called and said we need to go do that show and I said I don't want to radio. <hes> radio has no money in it. It's all egos and no money and I don't think I want to deal with it. No thank you. I need to make some money to feed my kids because we were so broke. We couldn't pay attention but as we talked about it and prayed about it. God said I'm going to do a thing and you need to be real careful. When <hes> God says he's going to do a thing because <hes> I'm looking at a bunch of our team standing around watching this right now our buildings not open to the public yet and yet there's two or three hundred folks standing in the lobby rotten down the new headquarters <hes> there's almost that many in the sound booth making sure all this is working king but <hes> the team's been working unbelievable hours <hes> unbelievable years on this building to get this to this point where we turn on this microphone today the number of Man manhours that have occurred in the amount of people who cared deeply to cause this to happen is off the scale? You see things don't happen in business where people don't care deeply things don't happen in ministry where things people I don't care deeply and I'm blessed to work with a group of people who care deeply and they have treated this project as if they owned it <hes> because they do. They're a team team member. They're part of our family apart of the Ramsey family and our hat goes off to all of them as we launched. This new endeavor out of this new building in this new show are the old show in a new location <hes> the Ken Coleman Show is in Studio B and just wrapped up a few minutes ago for those of you listening on Sirius X._M.. Or <hes> GonNa get the podcast later or whatever you won't find that actually Ken Coleman did the first broadcast from the Ramsey headquarters. It wasn't me irony of ironies as it should be. The future leads out and so good stuff very good times so we started doing the show on this little broke radio station and <hes> we agreed to work for free and told the guy running it that if we were bad he could cut are paying half and we were bad <hes> he didn't fire us because he just didn't have a better option <hes> and he wasn't smart enough to fire is probably bless his heart but we <hes> we kept doing a show and even though we were country fried and it sounded like he hall Radio Jio Barnyard Radio W._W._e.. And y'all call in. We'll help you with your debt. It was bad it was really bad and I'm really glad none of those tapes are out there and glad the digital world was not happening in those days because some of you would still be playing that crap and especially you haters and trolls but it was just it was bad I mean but it was a learning. There's no place to learn as a place to make mistakes. It was a place to <hes> learn how to turn on a microphone and how to speak directly into do it and <hes> learn how to deal with caller and get you guys off in time to go to a commercial break and learn how to deal with the crazy things that happen on the air and behind the scenes while you're on the air and all of those things coming up on thirty years we've now been doing this. <hes> that old show was originally on music row in downtown Nashville later moved to West End in downtown Nashville and then Gaylord bought the station moved us out to oprey land <hes> a little bit east east in a little bit north of Nashville and we broadcast from there for several years driving back and Forth Blake Thompson came on board. We built a little studio in a closet and cut a hole in the wall to the other closet and that was the sound booth with a little piece Lisa plexiglass that was not closed we didn't we didn't have an intercom between studio in a board team team. Running the show production team we just yelled through the wall. It was not soundproof and so you know but it got it done and we didn't have to drive back and forth oprey land anymore four and <hes> show I think the glass <hes> between us right now between me and the production team costs more than that entire studio did <hes> but it went over there and it worked and at the time and we thought it was a big deal deal at the time we think this is a big deal. We'll look back later when they're doing holograms and figure out that this thing right here was ancient you remember back when we did analog and nineteen you know remember when we actually sat there and did the show that's what we'll be saying another decade or two you but <hes> or some of you will if I'm not here either way <hes> pretty cool stuff to walk on a twenty seven year journey and see God's faithfulness and see him just show up time after time after time after time the number of times people Avon Radio Business said that I was not going to be on the air but another few months the number of times people in Radio Business said we were not going to survive. Just we lost count and it's humorous I can think back you know the ones that. That you remember the ones that hurt your feelings. The most Alah made you mad right made me mad. I remember those people I'm sorry I shouldn't. I shouldn't carry a grudge. I don't really carry a grudge. I just remember it 'cause it pissed me off so bad hurt my feelings so bad and it is kind of fun funder relish and the fact I'll I'll just be real transparent and say you know we're still in the business and they're not yeah and so when God says he's GonNa do a thing you can't listen to. You can't listen the E or you can't listen to people telling you can't be done. You can't listen to family says it can't be done. You can't listen to quote. Unquote friends are well intentioned yours. Oh it's bad you. You don't know how tough it is is rough out there. I remember when the talk radio publications came out with thing early on and we were in the two to five eastern time slot which we still are in the talked about Dr Laura being in that time slot and Chevrolet. There's John Sean Hannity in that time slot me in that time slot and they said if Jesus have got himself had a show that he was syndicated in that time slot he couldn't get on the radio right now. We just laughed ourselves and said well he does he does and so we'll we'll see so twenty seven years later here. We go and we're still sitting here. We're not necessarily the best we just didn't quit and we didn't shoot ourselves in the foot yet tens of thousands of hours of radio so far have said things on the air. They've taken me off the air completely. I'm capable of doing it. Though you guys know me you listen to me. Sometimes I do that but we're going to spend some time today talking about that kind of stuff and we're GonNa take your calls talk of the Ramsey personalities each one of them today as we celebrate this launch of the brand new studio in the brand new Ramsey headquarters and you know why we built this for you guys. We want to serve you better or four hundred that you're listening. This is the Dave Ramsey show. A recent study showed that over fifty percent of people think that the cost of term life insurance is triple what it actually costs. This must be why so many people still don't take care of this crucial responsibility. Trust me turn life rates are just plain cheap and it costs nothing to get a quote. The only place I trust and I personally use is zander insurance call eight hundred three five six forty two eighty two or visit ZANDER DOT com. It's more affordable than you think and you need to get this done. That's ZANDER DOT com the reason we do debt-free screams. It's a milestone. It's a moment when you have succeeded when you say touchdown and <hes> so we're doing that today. It's a moment it's a milestone as we launched the brand new studios in the brand new headquarters orders of Ramsey solutions. We'll take your calls today never fear but this is not business as usual because occasionally you need to stop and say it's not business as usual you know when babies are born when people get married when we have a funeral role when we do something new and big when we launched something it's not business as usual you need to stop and market in your emotions market in your spirit and that's what we're doing today. So we're taking your calls yes but it's not business as usual one thing I wanted to do on our very first day in the studio this half each of the Ramsey personalities on and Chris Hogan's getting ready to head to New York and just a few minutes. Don't a couple couple of days a television up there. You'll see him all over Fox and C._N._B._C. Yahoo Finance everything else Siriusxm in the next few days. She'll be watching for that but before he jumped on the plane. I said hey jump in here because we're going to get a few minutes with each of the personalities while this is this is unbelievable Dave while it really is. It's it's almost a little intimidating and we built it. No it really is you look at just the magnitude of this and how much hope it's going to give people for many many years to come. It's it's fantastic. The stuff you guys will be able to produce out of here. We were so crowded for so so chopped up broadcast time to podcasts out for each one of you for Ken call the Ken Coleman show which is now on regular radio as well Sirius X._M.. And <hes> all the different things. We're the Rachel cruze youtube show so all those things were just we were just backed tobacco. We couldn't breathe and now breathing room which is going to open up some creativity isn't it. Oh it really is. I mean Dave we're really self contained from here. In this building we're able to do things via fiber for TV we we can record our own shows and our own videos and and there's multiple locations where we can be doing multiple things at the same time yeah so <hes> this building does mean a lot to our team. What are you personally? I'm excited about regarding this thing well. I've been with you for fourteen years and you know thinking back. When I first started we were all under the same roof so the opportunity now for us all to be here to be able to go Florida floor and to see all the team members? <hes> is something I'm very personally excited about <hes> to be able to see the faces and the synergy and I'm already feeling it now as we sit in the cafeteria earliest more nobody down there but you a couple of marketers at one table and that stuff that you wouldn't couldn't didn't happen before know that an appointment outlook and you had to drive across that's exactly right and you just run into him and say hey. Let's talk about this and it's exactly what we did and so that for me is the thing I'm most excited about to get to to see an meet and get get to know the new people on the team and to really share the culture of what we're all about <hes> so folks may not know I mean most people know the Ramsey brand. No Chris Hogan is a major deal with two number one bestsellers and <hes> one of our top speakers out there all over the place top appearances on media and so forth go back and talk about tell the story of how you actually became a Ramsey personality because back then we named column Ramsey personality no no not at all at that time we were called message which bears well. I didn't have anything to do with that day but it was an opportunity to really continue to spread the message of what we're all about and how we go about it and the the you know the chance to get up and. To speak a little <hes> but part of that I was coaching people working with pro athletes and entertainers. That's how you joined our team you and I talked about. You'd sat in on the show one day. We got ranking your sports background and an M._B._A.. In finance and I said on Hey man helped me and let's go. Let's go help these athletes and that's how you came on board original. That's exactly right and we had grand ideas and plans but we made people nervous because we were helping the individual learn more and the business managers and the sports agents will. They were scared of us as soon as they knew we didn't want anyone making decisions from people. We wanted to educate them to help them make their own and yeah it. Can you know we still poke around in that world and help out but more than anything we're just a disruptor and so from there. How did you become personnel from there? Then it began to not just coaching Pro Athletes and entertainers were coaching everyday people from all around and got plugged in on some of the trainings <hes> our financial coach master training which is called counselor training at that time and getting up on stage and doing some presentations and you remember tryouts. Let you put us through Rachel Christie myself and a few others we had <hes> each of us had ten minutes on three different topics and you were in the back and we were up in front of a staff room in front of our team and we had time to get up there and speak and I'll never forget you standing in the back just watching us. I don't think you blinked or breathe. You were watching and it was a little intimidating good. Yeah I know what you intend to but it gave us an opportunity to really show what we do and that was kind of the beginning you know and with your guidance and and Jeremy Brooklyn <hes> teaching us in guidance we were able to all grow in our skills and it's amazing to see where we all are now yeah. It's it's Kinda crazy yeah. You did a lot of years of speaking for almost nothing just for there was a number one book before there was anything you know a lot of inside the company events <hes> where you were teaching our team teaching smaller one entree leadership classes and those kinds of things <hes> you paid your dues. You didn't just start on the big stage in front of ten thousand people. Oh no no not at all but I think that was a that process that we went through to get to where we are. Now gives us that gratitude D- <hes> that that that appreciation where you don't take things for granted and you understand the impact you can have on people by sharing information now yeah. It's a it's a privilege to strap on one of these microphones whether it's on a stage in front of a live audience the answer here are on Youtube thing or whatever we're doing a video series for financial peace university those kinds of things it's a privilege and we spend an awful lot of time these days around here talking about who's going to be on the other side of that you guys that are out there. You're listening. You guys that are out there viewing you guys that are going to be reading a book you guys what's the customer. How are we serving them? I think that's been one of the ingredients of the secret of our success. Oh without a shadow of a doubt and I think that mindset you tell us all the time you know we exist is for people that aren't here and that was one of the first things that I heard you utter when we were here at this at this location during an event before we even moved in you said what you see back. Here is a lot of concrete and a lot of hard work but it it exists for people that aren't here. This is is a place for hope and that is something that I've heard you say for fourteen years and that is exactly who we are absolutely for sure very cool stuff show what's in the future for Chris Hogan Ramsey personality well. I'm excited to get in in studio B once I fight Coleman and get him out of there. I'm telling you get over that. He will take it down. Dave the stuff. It's I know it's that thing's going away but we're all going to share that but I'm excited to grow my show. I'm excited for the Youtube Tube <hes> things that were going to be able to shoot and really grow that area and who knows data might be another booker to in the future yeah. I suspect I suspect well. The last have been number one so we probably shouldn't stop that you know if you fail a bunch of times. We'll probably quit right. As long as you're right number one. We'll probably let you keep doing 'em pipe risher honesty now so we do have to studios on the glass here in the lobby and a big big area for customers to visit and to see some of the history of Ramsay thing not just me but everybody and visit the cafe which is now renamed the Baker Street cafe after the opener the opener of the Dave Ramsey show the music bat under it is the J. Rafferty's Baker Street. You'll get that and you can watch this show show on the glass every day from one to four of central time this'll be opened somewhere in early August so if you're coming the Nashville area make sure you put in Ramsey headquarters and stop by and see us in studio.

Ministries DOT ORG Christian healthcare ministries is a proud sponsor of Dave Ramsey live events and welcome back to the Dave Ramsey show up first. in this hour mark is with us in fort worth texas may mark welcome to the dave ramsey show thank you how can i help today sir i have a question about the basically my wife and i we bought a house <hes> and after i got stationed on active duty military stationed in <hes> we bought a house and about a month ago she left and i'm trying to see if she goes through with the doors and everything should dude i i'm sorry how old are you guys <hes> <hes> thirty two she's thirty five i don't even married <hes> about out in september would have been two years we'll be to what in the world happened <hes> i don't know completely i know i think part of it was actually not fumbling found yourself would have actually contributed to <hes> trying to make it work we actually got debt free while i was on deployment you know last year and then i got orders to fort worth and we decided to buy a house and <hes> then i mean she just i think she's like phone with me so i'm trying to make it work north but don't know okay i'm sorry <hes> well it the obviously the there's a moment in this process where the <hes> wh where there's a tipping point and the tipping point is when you know that we're going to divorce it doesn't sound like you're hundred percent there yet <hes> but it sounds <hes> distressing like it's heading that way what you're describing okay so <hes> today a day i wouldn't do anything <hes> because if you get back together this house was part of your original equation it could be part of your future you're selling it as a joint decision could be part of your healing if it's causing financial stress <hes> but i really i i wouldn't make that decision today what i would do is run it through my mind as a scenario and say well obviously if we get back together the houses still on the table and we don't want to take it off the table but if there's if there's a break-up once we know there's gonna be a divorce papers were filed and you're sure that you're sure then at that point a friend of mine that does divorce recovery work says that <hes> a divorce turns a marriage into a business transaction and so at at that point this is just a business transaction sadly and you just go you know i'm a single guy in the military and do i need this house the answer is probably no isn't it is going home has three kids down to david <hes> quite often well two maybe three times a year so i guess it's not quite often and then what i was trying to should i use get apartments are going to try to run to the numbers with you and yeah so what is your house payment i'm not thirty five a month what do you what what are your personal what is your personal take home pay i'm do you want take <hes> <hes> before child's quarter after work you're already paying child support yes i'm three the three kids from a previous relationship oh okay all right yeah after well before child support what's your take on <hes> before out splits it's fifty nine hundred a month men astra child support it's forty two yeah okay well you can afford the house austin and so forth of your take home pay before you take care of your kids and then you take care of your kids so you can do that as a single guy <hes> if you'd like the house and you want to stay in the house <hes> the question i've got is if i'm thirty two and i'm single and i have of kids three times a year would rather just rent the presidential suite and the local hotel which will be cheaper <hes> when the kids are in town <hes> you gotta pool you got a restaurant and it's cheaper than on in the house and then just live on base or live in you know live live inexpensively but if you if you desire to own that house you think you're going to be in fort worth a long time and there's something about this particular property that you really like and you wanna hold onto it it's in the affordability range it's just a matter of you know does the new normal for you include this house and that's up to you the numbers work though there's anything that that <hes> keeps you from owning that house from a numbers perspective patrick is with us in texarkana hi patrick welcome to the dave ramsey show hey dave i appreciate headed it's an honor to speak with you today you too sir what's up yes sir well <hes> i am twenty seven single <hes> salary about forty five thousand a year <hes> two and a half years ago i inherited three hundred sixty seven thousand dollars and my great grandmother my hand yeah it was a good chunk of change yes sir yes sir for sure <hes> i i use that money to buy property build a house <hes> risk by tac there's more things for the property <hes> not that about eighty westover bet <hes> and i was just gonna get your from seeing you know what i should do the eighty thousand do you have any long term investments going yes sir that well bet eighty thousand is in managed account right now with my financial adviser okay do you have anything like 4._0._1._k.'s or roth iras guess or yes i've got a 4._0._1._k. with my company going for five years there's about about twelve sitting there right now okay hundred percent maxed out i mean you're one hundred percent debt free <hes> i have bought a one of those nice folks mowers and <hes> up got what what you bought what lawnmower reap may turn lawnmower yeah but you didn't pay for it no sir i did not i did okay we'll go ahead and pay that off today that stupid okay all right okay what other debts do you have <hes> the only other hand is my truck <hes> i-it's up for for work and i know you love companies that give a vehicles piping for the for the Can you get a stipend of the truck has dead on it or not right off the truck okay. What do you owe on the more on the truck? Oh probably twenty five okay all right so we're thirty one thousand down on the eighty which puts us at four nine to invest. Do you have an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses. Not Counting this eighty. No Sir I do not I would all thank you. Should I use so that eighty two to put him emergency fund. Yes Sir yes sir. You should okay. You need to have an emergency fund of three to six months of expenses. What's your income Sir Forty five thousand okay all right? I'd probably set get yours at about twenty thousand bucks in and so now that leaves us with twenty nine thousand to invest yes sir and <hes> you know you'll be you can do some stuff with that but we're debt free one hundred percent. We're living on a budget. You never buy anything thing else again the rest of your life with that Yes sir and you'll be you'll be incredibly wealthy if you do that you watch what you're doing an invest what most people pay in payments that's the way to honor whoever the very wise person was that made enough if money that they left you three hundred fifty thousand bucks two years ago and the way to honor them is for you to be wise and for you to watch every step of what you're doing and <hes> you gotta be real careful. You know there's nothing nothing horribly wrong with owning a truck nothing nothing horribly wrong with owning a a zero turn lawn mower but you pay cash for these things and the last thing you want to do is walk around acting like you can afford them. You need to really think about all these kinds of purchases. If you're a billionaire you can impulse something. That's twenty seven seven thousand dollars. You can not impulse something's twenty seven thousand dollars when you make forty five thousand dollars a year and you have eighty grand your name other than the stuff you own that you bought with the money before so you pay cash for stuff. You'RE GONNA get yourself in trouble and you don't i WanNa do that. You don't WanNa look back and have that horrible taste on the back of your tongue called regret. It's a bad place to live a man. Thanks for the call. We appreciate your listening. This is the Dave Ramsey show yeah <music> <music> welcome back to the Dave Ramsey show. This is a day that we are celebrating being in the news studios and the new headquarters for Ramsey solutions and one of the things we wanted to do is make sure that all the Ramsey personalities came on the day and we just mark this as a milestone marked this as it's a moment in time by making sure that we just talk about it out loud. Sometimes you get you know you just get onto the next thing so fast I do that I drive pass these moments that you need to stop and say hey. This is a new thing today today. It started Rachel Cruze. My daughter Ramsey personality number one bestselling author Multiple Times you see her regularly on Fox and friends and Good Morning America. She is a huge star on Youtube with Rachel Cruze show as well joins me as has were just stopping and going a little bit down memory lane and looking out into the future a little bit as well. This is pretty crazy isn't it and now it's so fun I was talking to Kelly in the in the booth right before I came on and she was like you had the last show at Financial Peace Plaza like the old building there was no it was like you James and Kelly three people here because everyone else had moved down and she was like the last show in that building was like oh it's over you know yeah and then you come here and it's like buzzing and yeah so so odd people ladder when we started and now they've gone back to work. Thank goodness good but yeah so let's kind of go back <hes> for people that are newer to the show we have a lot of new listeners new viewers on Youtube and that kind of thing that join us all the time and <hes> this whole Ramsey personality thing <hes> talk about how you became a Ramsey personality I would say I came on board before they were personalities. We column that then now so I feel like my story started more back in high school when I started traveling and speaking with you at the total money makeover events this big arena events on Saturdays who's a full day long event and someone from the office at the time was Rachel. You know I was fourteen. I think in the time fourteen fifteen and they're like you should get up on stage before one of the brakes and pitch the kid's products because it'd be so fun to hear from Dave Abrams daughter about what it was like growing Abrams he's kid and you can talk about the kid's products and how much you know they kind of developed out of your household as where they came from a pretty good little routine fifteen years old and from ten thousand people talking about how tough it is to be Daveramsey daughter you remember any of my top ten list. Remember remember from uh-huh Gosh. I talked to him. It's tough to Daveramsey landmines that if a hot guy ever asks you out on a date you're required to ask him with his car's paid for before he goes up in another one. Oh Gosh I can't remember now. That was never allowed thank you that's back when super signing. You're allowed to supersize your McDonald's because if you put that thirty nine cents in the bank you'll be a millionaire by the time you're eighty three so I had my little list sitting at my little thing that that I did on stage so all that to say though I remember though at fifteen and I probably couldn't have verbalised it then but I remember thinking like that was so fun like my very first event I ever did was in Seattle and Morales like I got off stage and I thought man that was so oh fun and someone said that I said that someone and they said well. That's not normal. Most people hate public speaking in the fact that you're fifteen and you enjoyed that that's interesting and I was like yeah so I did it more because you because after I got off stage I'd run to the back book tables and I got a cut from whatever sold for my little table and that was my job for like the last three years of high school was doing that was traveling with you and doing that and so I saw it more as a side Gig of like Oh yeah I can make some great money in high school and this can be my part time job besides just babysitting <hes>. <hes> and then went to college and kind of say that was my lightbulb moment of realizing communications degree well Sir but even Freshman Year of college though was my moment where I realized oh well the message of what we talk about and what we teach at Ramsey solutions I really do believe 'cause I was talking to peers at that point about student loans and credit cards and car payments. You know all these eighteen year olds who were already making so many Dev devastating mistakes with their money and I remember sitting there thinking Oh i I don't have all the answers and everything I don't know everything but I know enough that can help you already make smart decisions with your money so I became really passionate about that the the message side of it so when I graduated but that did not happen to Daniel or denise no they did not decide they were you know did not say oh. My friends are doing this. I gotTa Stop Them. They both just Kinda stood there and watched it. You know what I'm saying. You're the one had to interrupt them. Yeah I mean I felt something in me. I was like this isn't right. This is right and so when I graduated there was natural next step of talking to you. I'm just saying man I want to travel at the time was too high schools and colleges because I really saw myself at that point has kind of the preventative medicine while you were the emergency surgeon. I'm like if I can get this message early and so again. This is all before Ramsey personalities so when I started I graduated in May remember Winston. I remarried we got we moved to Nashville. I think it was like two days later. After we moved in I hit the road that summer and toured with this camp this youth camp or something all summer long. I was gone for like two months basically doing that and you just Kinda grow this heart for the youth of just getting that message out and then here at Ramsey solutions. I feel like we refined and perfected kind of the system okay. What does it look like to be a speaker to be an author and all of that which birth the Ramsey personality and then my message moved with me out of youth thankfully Anthony O'Neill on the planet because it's hard talking high school students are still doing that today? It's a tough job so he's got for Anthony The O.`Neil Youth but yes I'd say like being married becoming a mob and working and all that I mean my messages progressed with me. I guess in that sense. That's that was ten years ago <hes> so ten years. You've been doing this law school. That's fair fair yeah so for Sixteen Years Yeah so do you remember the first time you did a big television. Show freaking out hundred percent Fox and friends New York really and actually no no one from our team was able to go winston went with me and we went to New York. I remember I was wearing a blue blazer on in a striped shirt and jeans. I mean like I had I had no I I was I was scared to death and we left and the hit went went fine. <hes> I remember we left Fox in studio the Fox News building right around the corner to this little cafe thing and had breakfast and just feeling like the biggest relief of my life like it was like adrenaline just like I just you know I just like crash gosh but it was so fun nobody went with with me. Now is just mean Winston certain certain subject or the kids in College College Money Yeah to the Book Smart Money Smart Kids which tweeted later yeah I mean I would have been before that <hes> that Fox and friends it was my first national and then I did a satellite hits. I remember that was one of my first to C._N._N.. And want to say I did that yeah. We did a lot of C._N._N.. In the evenings yes and I think that was my first like fiber one but yeah those are the milestones for sure in your mind you do remember the first day here at the studio so this new building as you walk around our team. There's just on it's like Christmas morning. Were all jumping up and down <hes>. What are you excited about for the future given that we've got the capacity we've got now for the Rachel Cruze Brand Oh for me specifically or Ramsey Solutions Sousse specifically? Oh Gosh I mean there's like a logistical standpoint that our team is like it's were together now. Spread out all over the place like we're all right there so workflow getting work done all of that is is so nice and we have studios here in the building trump. Virgo downstairs are sure to show yeah this is so nice so I would say that and yeah and I just think you know the amount of growth though as a company not just the Rachel Cruze show brand or Rachel cruze brand but just Ramsey solutions in general I'm like man. It just feels like you can breathe like when you just like physically move spaces and it's just like oh there is new energy but it feels like there's like literal room for growth and and that's exciting again I wrote an instagram post social posts about our team member premier to Thursday nights ago but it's true like we say it all the time around here but like we we exists for the people that are not in this building and so that's the fun. That's the part where you're like man. How many more people are going to be reached? How many how many more people are going to hear the message? You're going to get help just because of the logistical factor of that of this company relatively small almost eight hundred eight hundred people but but in the grand scheme of right America America Mike we're like this little group of people right outside of Nashville Tennessee but it's huge so you have a new show hitting yes the rich occur show episode out today. Think Society won't tell you about money and how to bust those myths. How proud are you of Winston for knock on the Shaw my husband man so good? He's so good is this is an incredible project. He's worked out. It's insane. We worked five years together.

224. TWE Survival Series | A Guided Meditation with Matty K

"Hello friends and welcome to another episode of the working experience a very warm open audio embrace and a squeeze. We have a new series of sorts for your listening pleasure. We are calling the series. The working experience survival kit the series will consist of guided meditations -tations guided naps and solis affirmations and whatever else we can think of to ease the mind numbing soul deadening experience of the modern modern workplace and some day in the near future. We will have an app because your entire life should revolve around your phone and be on the lookout for branded pills. Lotions russians appointments crystals in prayer rocks. Thanks everyone. I hope you enjoyed this episode of the working experience the working experience i'm ninety. Three north is almost at a standstill yet so rough out there this morning win. Sleep limits no service on any unclear. The closing doors to be a few minutes and traffic should make make sure and lay down either reporting s._a._p. Presentation charlotte awesome team meeting at work makes the dream work and after the meeting. We'll have a breakout session. It is discovered that everyone misses matty kay from the working experience podcast with another guided meditation. You know what time it is. It's time for that. It's like being back in your mother's womb. What do we always say here at the working experience come on you should know by now in one hundred years. It won't matter anyway anyway so shish. Doll get stressed out. You can reply implied that email another time. Just put an off go home early. Don't worry about that project. Let someone what else take care of it. Don't stress yourself. Stress is a killer so sh zhou. We're not gonna worry about it now. Of course even in the face of our serenity we will sometimes receive criticism and today we're going to look at different ways. We can respond productively to that criticism inevitably. You'll face criticism at work. Your manager or the human resources representative will try to keep his specific and professionals possible the may be about you being late or not finishing something or not responding to emails or watching videos while you're supposed to be doing work or something like that. Ah but you want to make it personal. Que no matter how professional they try to keep you wanna make it personal imply that they're even may be legitimate. Criticism is an attack on your character character. That will turn the situation to your advantage just because your boss has some reasonable criticisms about your job. Performance performance doesn't mean that you have to respond in a reasonable way. Remember that okay so i have some scenarios here to run through with a few and some possible responses you can use as always feel free to improvise be creative. I just want to give you a little framework little bull jumping jumping off point here so your manager might say you were late for the meeting again. That is the third time in a row. It's unprofessional and you could respond with. I feel judged right now and it is making me very insecure. See you're implying that your boss not implying. You're saying you're judging me making it personal. Your manager might say there are three miscalculations in this report and you could respond with. I feel misunderstood by you right now. I don't feel that my emotional needs are being met. How do you like that that manager. You're supposed to be meeting. My emotional needs not making me feel like less of a person because of some miscalculations relations and report. We're all human right. We all make mistakes. Sometimes we don't have time to look things over. That's just called being human being <hes>. Your manager might say if your performance doesn't doesn't improve. We are not going to be able to keep you in the department and you could respond with. I feel vulnerable. If i am fired tired and not receiving a paycheck i'll be homeless and forced to whore myself for money to eat and buy drugs see again. You're telling your manager that not only the criticizing your job. They're they're shaking the whole foundation for your life. That's not fair over some job. Performance review turn back around. Put them on the spot right. Your manager might say to you. I don't understand why you don't have that report ready. I leaving for akron in an hour. You could respond with. I was working on a pound exploring your creative side. Who who is your manager to stunt your creative growth because of some report that he or she needs before flying into <unk> akron who goes to akron anyway all right so again but them on the defensive deflect op he skate shift blame change the narrative change the focus of the exchange be flexible and creative. Your manager might say to you. These reports really need to be proof right. There are just too many typos and misspellings spellings. I might respond with. I'm a good person and i love myself even if nobody else does. That's very poignant. That's very very important that you love yourself even if no one else does that you're not basing your self self worth on typos misspellings. That's not fair another scenario here you manage my oh i throw at you. You've been late four times this month and it's only the sixteenth you might respond with. It didn't matter what time i came home and i was a kid. My parents were divorced known. Was there anyway see you're giving are a reasonable basis for y. You would be late because when you were a child. It was implanted in you that you need to be home on time was no one cared anyway and it's very difficult to overcome those things that are implanted in us as children and you should bring us up with your boss us. You should give him or her a very valid emotional reason for why you've been late four times don't blame you. Blame claim your parents. They're the ones who got divorced. Some people might see this is being unprofessional or that managers shouldn't really have to care about that. I i don't think so. I think you turn right back around. Make it about your emotional needs. That's important your manager might say hey the presentation you gave was just way off the mark. You didn't address any of the points that needed to be highlighted. You you might respond with our greatest. Pain can be our great celebration and that's very true. That's very very true. <hes> aw again you're deflecting from these specific criticism and just making it very general and i would say that you may be your manager can even learn something from that. It's not really about the presentation. It's about learning from pain and who's gonna say that's not valuable. Let's see here. <hes> your manager might say i'm flying out to seattle tomorrow. No and i still don't have the spreadsheets from you and you might respond with. That's pretty much what my father said the day he walked out on us again again bringing in childhood adversity to explain your actions as an adult. You may not have had a father that walked doubt on. You doesn't really matter if it's true or not. There's no way you're managers going to know that so use it why not again <hes> deflecting away from the fact that you didn't do the spreadsheets. Why i don't know probably went home early. You may have called out sick. Maybe you're watching videos. Maybe you were chatting with the boys about your fantasy baseball team. I don't know whatever it is. You don't need to bring it up in the meeting. Your manager might say we're going to have to have a meeting with human resources about all the sick days. You've taken and you could respond with. That's pretty much what my mother said the day she walked out on us instead of my father. It's my mother. This time can can make a personal. Don't make it about the issue. That's at hand. You're not gonna win that way if you take all those sick days you've taken taken them. That's a fact so just get around. Don't address that fact address some other fact and it may not even be a fact. Maybe your mother didn't walk out on you. So what you manager could possibly say to you and have heard this more than once. I've got to say we are just is not very happy with your performance and here's a comeback that i think is quite profound. Maybe maybe it's yourself who you're not happy with. How about that turned right back around. Maybe it's the manager who was unhappy with his her life. Maybe it's the manager who hasn't been performing well at the job. Maybe it's the manager manager who needs to take a look deep inside. See what type of person they are. Remember don't make it about you. Make it about them. Deflect duck dodge obfuscate drudge up things from the past again if they're true if they're not really isn't relevant just remember. They should be true to you. That's very important.

Yeah this has been a shit show. Yeah so anyway Good to see you can actually see there and I guess we'll serve. What are you drinking? Oh today I am. I am drinking a peanut butter Let me show you actually peanut butter milk stout by left hand. I think I've had this at least once or twice before but Super Yummy. I love left hand so can't go wrong there. What about you so low in calories right? Yeah Yeah Yeah totally totally watching my weight during this whole thing so I actually am. I got firestone Walker. Fly Jackets in ninety six calorie. I well. Apa in his actually. It's a little lighter than of the stuff that the guys on the site drink at ten eleven percent. But it's still a pretty good I mean. Does it count? If you're drinking like ten of them like that actually I I. We did have a sober day yesterday in the house because it really everyday just happy hour night. There's no there are no rules. There's just days run into each other time. Isn't that a weird? Isn't there fucking weird. I was talking to my wife today. I said something about you know we'll do this tomorrow in the Friday will do this tomorrow. Friday yeah sure. I don't care I've had to ask my wife a couple times throughout this whole thing you know is this. It's Thursday today right like shit like that it is just. It's we jokingly. Call it groundhog day. Because you know I go to sleep you wake up. I'm working from home. Get off work hopefully to decent time dinner. Td gaming bed. And I swear to God. It's that cycle every single fucking day. And it's just a little bit bizarre. Honestly it's that's the problem. I think a lot of people are happening. And we'll we'll get to all this but it's it's getting into that routine of. Oh Shit I off. My kids are home and I'm just a lot of alcohol a lot of food. I'm GONNA board eat and drink so yeah we're all gonna find our way I think. Yeah it's it's odd. I mean I don't know if you're running into this or I mean people in chat please please please interact. I mean filthy. Two free throw things in. We're going to talk to you guys. Talk about Comments you're making answer questions. Whatever so jump in wherever but I when this started I actually. I had great fucking intentions. Honestly I'm like cool you know I'll break the day up. We'll go walk dogs every day. We'll go for walks will have a home. Gym will work out whenever I haven't worked out a fucking minute hardly and we do. Take the dogs for walks. But I don't know if you've falling into that trap where it's almost like you. Just it's it almost makes you a little more lazy. Yes and no. We've been doing walks we've been doing. Actually we've been doing walks. I'M NOT GONNA lie the treadmills behind me. Does it up close on it? Please tell me it has closed on it or something for a lot of we cut the grass on the riding mower today to my phone actually counsel as a steps which is nice so be it like six miles by the end of the night. Nice but yes so. We'll we'll get to everything you're with all that but you can see by our the background. We chose this week We're dealing with a global thing when everyone's mind right now and know. It crosses pretty much. All norms from politics to health to family matters to support for people in that thing is joe exotic sweeping the fucking nation. Right now I don't care about the corona virus. This thing has taken over my life. Amazing I I don't want to do an organ ruined for anybody if you haven't seen it but you know you've probably seen advertising. You're going to Netflix. It's one of the things that they try and get you to watch yet. You really should if you haven't I don't even know Lyon keeper with Multiple Husbands. Who used math and have tigers and guns who runs for office? I don't know I mean it's the most amazing thing I've seen in a long time because I I couldn't write. Anyone could write this story. No I finished it right. Oh Yeah we watched the last episode last night. Okay I wanted to go but Is Out there. He ran for president. He ran for governor. You can see the picture. The guys just gold. The whole show is gold. It's it's it's it's hard to explain all dropping moment one after another of I cannot believe what I'm seeing. It's hard to explain without spoiling it and that's the problem. I'm having right now because there's so many things I want to talk about. And we've been talking about this in depth on our discord. So it's I'm trying to think of what to say here. Watch the show. I mean. Honestly it's as fucked up as it sounds like it is and more probably like I went into it knowing that you guys were talking about How messed up it was. And it's it's it's it's every episode. I'm sitting there like I can't believe that these are real people doing doing this shit but he is and so is everyone else. Yeah Yeah but yes I finish the last tonight. My my life will be empty after this is over. Oh Yeah so yeah. So that's that's kind of taken over our discord and pretty much. Everyone lives that I know. Anyway so yeah so anyway. That kind of leads into the next topic's how you doing no sports bunny well considering that this is baseball season. I'm doing just fine but that you know that right. Yeah I'm aware I mean. I am bummed about basketball and hockey because the avs in the nuggets were actually doing really well. So that's kind of a Pisar What's what's got me a little pucker though is I'm legitimately starting to worry about football. I don't know about you but it's like we know right now that there's going to be. I mean if there's any offseason program it's going to be drastically limited and I. I honestly don't suspect there's going to be one and then you reach the point that if we reach. Nfl training camp and they don't do anything. Are they going to continue with the season? Are they going to delay the season? I mean there. There's a lot I think. This is a lot closer to something really bad for his happening. Sports wise than than we want to admit. Yeah and I. I will admit I've been avoiding. I haven't watched much sport channels because it's just unless there was some big free agent news and things like that so I really don't know they discussed what a plan would be. I mean these are kind of a drop dead date for the NFL that you've seen so far. I haven't honestly unless somebody in chat if you've if you've seen that Lease feel free to share. But I honestly haven't and I'll be the first to admit also I've Kinda tuned it out honestly like I`ve. I don't like not having sports but I don't know that it's like negatively affecting me that much right now but I'm mostly a football guy. So that's one it'll become real for me is if if it fucks with football season honestly yes. It's march madness. Obviously it's you miss all these things but I think you get into a rhythm where I am Kinda now. It's like I just I don't expect it to be there. So there's not you flip through and their old games and finding all the sports that I'd never watched before so I don't know the outcome anyway. So it's new to me like what Australian rules football. They were actually going live games until I think last week but you know German Soccer Games. I'd never seen you can some random. Nfl game from week. Six between take the cardinals in the panthers. I don't know I'd have done. You won that game. I'll sit down and watch right but it's just weird because you're you feel like you kind of lose that connection to the live world because there's always something on car racing diving ice hockey you name it. There was always something you can turn to to feel like okay. Real life is still happening. It's not it's just not it's messed up honestly I haven't I haven't even watched like weird sports or replays or anything The only thing that I've really been keeping up with is some of the NFL. Free Agency stuff So yeah I mean. I don't know it's not affecting me as much as I thought it would. I am like I said I'm not. I'm not that pleased about not having hockey and basketball right now but it is what it is and just to give us a little plug are banned digital. Ciphers was awesome enough to start up our golf club Twenty Nineteen. I think it is Lee again on Xbox so I mean you know. We're giving given the guys some fun sports fixes for now anyway and that'll keep us a little bit distracted. Which really I mean. Let's be honest. That's what everybody's looking for right. Now is a distraction if you're a content creator you're GonNa this is your fucking time to shine right now. You know what I mean. Hey we got like six people watching this thing come on Yeah Hell Ya So yeah I picked up. I turn my xbox on and downloaded warzone. Actually played the other night last night till way too late. I'm gaming again. I'm not doing the golf because I can't virtually smashed my club but yeah I'm I'm finding myself like you said. I'm there are definitely more downtime in the day. My kids are home so we went from our took. My wife and I work from home so we go from our two offices down to the dining room table. It's the four of us around the table with laptops and papers and everything else. It's been quite a change so sometimes you just have to get up and I just know maths. I'll be back in an hour. Yes so it's not been nice outside. Which is the shitty thing. Because I want to. I could go to yard. Work could take a dog for a walk cut. The grass was the first Nice Day. Now we're going to have. I think four days of rain going into the weekend. Yeah we're that's what we're expecting. Today's beautiful it's like it had to have been seventy today. I mean windows open heat off. We're right in that time of year where I'm in Colorado. I think everybody knows that that whatever nine now you. It's we're in that time of year where we could get a fucking foot of snow or could be like eighty and it's it's just weird but That's cool. You've been gaming. I mean honestly and I know I said to you before we my wife and I were sitting down gaming and I got the little pop up said that you are online and she was just like is that Lee and I'm like I don't even know what to say right now. I've not seen him sign on for. I don't know how long I think I was in stealth mode for a very long time. Because I knew I was GONNA game with anyone so I don't WanNa get hopes up but now I'll be on hell. Yeah we'll have to play some more zone so I like it. I really I. The game's awesome. It's fun it's I think. If you play with somebody's last night we had a good good threesome. We've finished top five most of the time. Just because you find a good spot in the map you know you you make it work You've kind of hold out and let her when kill each other and you go on the offensive and lock it out. You See. That's the old man strategy right. You take care of things I fuck ya well I love it. So you're being accused of being a cocktail in chat so everybody has to keep in mind lease very good at threesomes. So that's that's a benefit Yeah I mean this is awesome. Thank you guys for coming out and chatting with US and listening. Make sure you throw out whatever questions and comments whatever this is this is kind of what we're hoping for right with a live show. Is that a little bit of interactive Interact interactivities interactive hootenanny. Little Shenanigans mixed that into our normal content so looks like we got short bus in here. I love it. Mt Came to Kane. Tk a love it. So I think united kind of joking around last week and one of the topics you brought up was how movies we watch. The kid prepares for this nonsense. I think the one that we were both instantly drawn to was red dawn. Oh Yeah so have you. How has your life changed since all this shit happen? It's interesting. I've actually been one of the guys out of our group that I think is Everybody loves you. Read down reference by the way And yes mike the Knife. That is the corona virus in the background. He lied did a bang-up job on this ship. I would say the only way things have really changes that now. I'm home all the time. And we're we're home bound a lot more like usually we will try to go do stuff after work because my wife will already worked from home all the time so now. Obviously that's gone down quite a bit but I've been in the IT industry. And I I don't WanNa say who I work for. But it's a large communications provider and we've been working on mobilizing a lot of our call center agents to work from home So that's been an extreme challenge and it's taken up. I've been probably three to four times as busy these last two weeks as I normally so I'm not enjoying much of the. Hey I'm home I can fuck around time at all. Honestly it's not a it's not. It's not fun. That's for sure What about you? I mean transportation so When airports are closed. It's kind of hard to move stuff so really were Islamic net. Yeah Now What's interesting though? And what got you and me talking about. This was Yeah see it. Looks like short buses going through the same stuff a little bit. Low busy You and me talked about how the perspective that we have on things like this because of the movies and TV shows that we that we've grown up with or even recent ones right and so you brought up red d'arme everybody looks and jokes about apocalyptic situations or fucking Russians or whatever not fenced any Russians. That probably aren't listening invading and it. I don't know about you but it I guarantee you that people of our generation when when this went from a you know maybe kind of thing to full blown. I think it went from being a joke to. You're thinking yourself yeah. This seems familiar somehow. Right now knuckle up. You don't know that's that's it. One day could be looking for toilet paper and the next. I'm fucking building a machine gun nest in my front yard. I I don't fucking know what's going to happen did you get. Hoa Approval for that by the way. They're gonNA frown upon that. Oh I don't know how you do that as a plan. I mean maybe if I would if I name like the machine gun planter and I could say I'm putting a plant or something I think if you're green defying the community. I'm all for it. I think so. If it's going to tear it you look so did in our chat. I was hoping I would at least have zombies to take out and short by Matab for giving for forgiveness not permission and that might be the key is just did I do it. And then if you know Bitch Karen down the street mentions it then. I don't know this is this is this is weird dude. Like it's I don't know what to make of it honestly I don't either. I'm I'm done. I'm done to kind of worrying about it so I've gone. We're not leaving the house anymore. We started doing INSTA- cart. We'll see they told me they'd be here tonight. So we'll see how that goes but I just since the cart that they do shopping for you and deliver to your house. Oh Shit Okuda. That's fancy as Hell fucking rocks so I just. I didn't want to risk. I don't know you hear that most people will survive this thing and not need any sort of medical attention. I won't be that person so it's not worth me going out and getting something bring it home to the kids and the wife. So we've said okay. We'll we'll do all the disinfecting the groceries. We'll do all this stuff you know and the supply was pretty good. But I just don't WANNA ground. We'll carry out so we're trying to support local restaurants. Yeah the breweries are doing curbside now too. So we've gone to net you times which has been awesome. I just I don't WanNa go out anymore until this cleared up. It's just not worth it. Yeah and that's where we're at. I think we're actually GONNA do takeout tonight. We've been pretty good about just trying cook. We don't eat out a ton anyway but I think tonight we're going to It's I don't even know how to describe it. Honestly I don't feel weird about it until we leave and then the other day we ran up to the grocery store for something where I live in a real small town And so we have like a safeway here and they're usually out of almost everything and I was excited because they finally had like fucking meat. You know what I mean like. They had stuff that I couldn't get before but it's just the most bizarre and surreal feeling walking around. And you see people with masks on and gloves and what what makes it weird to me is that it doesn't seem weird anymore. You know what I mean like. I don't think I'm not a conspiracy guy whatsoever. I don't think this is gonNA turn into like some you know like weird shit hopefully anyway but I don't feel like we've actually hit the worst of it yet. You know what I mean. I think that right now. We're kind of in a if we're just doing the social distancing shifts. I don't feel like everybody's bought into it yet. So it makes me feel. There's a lot of fucking people in the country so it makes me feel like it's going to get a little bit worse here before we start seeing some improvements. I mean now they don't care so you you watch the two governors who've been deleted this things he had Cuomo New York who just losing his mind on TV every day. Oh have our governor Hogan whose that I think he's. The Chairman of the governors commissions represents all of them and he's like that that grandfather getting pissed off but he's holding together because when he snaps look out. 'cause Laura knelt the belts coming. Yes and I just don't understand south the cherry blossoms in DC. That's a big thing. Cherry blossoms bloom late March April. It was packed earlier this week. Down there no one cares. I read about as a gym near where I live and they put some equipment in the parking lot. People use not wiping it down. People are still congregating. They don't get it. I don't care. Numbers are keep spiking. Yeah these idiots short bus hit people are gross. People don't wash their hands. It's not it's not me. I'm worried about JEREM. Frequent for this all started. People are disgusting. So I've got a buddy of mine. This girl comes into work. Didn't make her st works in finance and she comes in and she had a cough and she had the fever and they didn't send her anywhere and her theory was look. I gotTa let my life. I'm GonNa do what I want right. And his birthday is coming up. She said what are you going to be your birthday. Like what the fuck is GonNa do for his birthday stand on a bar and look in the window right? What does it do yes like? They're like they don't they? It's an inconvenience for these stupid hassles. So that's a good way to put it honestly. That's that's really accurate. It's Darwin like take that you need to take let's get back to a good baseline. I mean you know. I know that's not popular. Probably but fuck I mean I. I'm not even talking about the people that Eighteen is because there's you know there's we talked about this on our last episode there's generation that's seriously at risk and. I'm not talking about them. It's video that was on twitter on this corn three spring breakers and human. He'd drink ask rex. Yes you deserve to get the corona virus on a good day. You sit in fucking Brown is worse case ventilator. We're in the middle of what you need their parents. If if that was my child fucking Panama City. The fuck you are. You're not you're not. How would you stay or get your ass home right now? Right well head to steal said it in chat we that it's it's the only way people are going to buy into it as if it gets worse and that's probably the truth and here's what. I sort of feel bad about right and I feel bad about I feel bad about saying this but like we were talking when this first started happening We were talking to our older kids out of college. That age right all. My kids are a little bit older and they both one of them works like in a hostile environment and the other one is a physical therapist and they were very much downplaying right like Oh you know this is. This is going to be nothing. It's stupid whatever and I kept thinking to myself you know and I'm not GonNa go into the old man trap of of making a generational comment here. It is way beyond seal. I kept thinking to myself. It's that fucking attitude that's going to get us in trouble in and it's going to make the situation a lot worse than needs to be on top of I. We don't get into politics. It's on top of the mishandling this whole thing as a country and sure shit here we are. You know what I mean you know. People are having asked Craft Beers. Which fine you know. I'm a fucking fan of it. Great you know what I mean. I we run a rowdy. Ask tailgate years so I get it and I want to have fun too but you know I do. Do you want to be around? Do you want to keep people safer? And that's exactly what I think people miss is that it's it isn't just you. It's who you might affect you and I mean maybe you'll get like the dumb ass kid that I saw on social media this fucking corona virus challenge right. Did you see that? Shit I briefly. I didn't really dig into it. God Dude I mean. He looked like he was a teenager of some sort. If somebody in Chattanooga was But the key was doing corona virus challenge. Where Liquor fucking toilet okay? He ended up in the hospital with Corona virus. And it's like dude. I don't really feel sympathetic to you. I feel sympathetic to the eighty year. Old Guy that his spouse died and he lives alone and he had to go to the fucking store. Because you needed something any gets it and dies. That's the guy I feel bad for. I don't feel bad for the dump fucking seventeen year old. That looks a toilet which you kind of deserve what you're getting at that point anyway but you know then you end up with it. It's you know I I don't know what you even do about those kinds of folks now. There was someone today. She went to a grocery store and either she licked or she breathed on like all these groceries into throw out like thirty grand with the groceries. 'cause she was just spewing her nonsense all over everything. I mean it's ord what's the other one that I saw. Some kid was like walking down the aisle of a store and fucking like like licking an entire row stuff. It's like I swear to God. I know this isn't a popular thing but if I'm a store and I see some kid looks like he's relatively close eighteen doing that shit. He's getting my fucking fitness asks. Like on the spot. Please be filming. No I'm not giving any evidence to anybody if somebody's GonNa catch me on that. They're going to do the work. We'll call it the end corona virus challenge your old man the stay off my lawn. Oh God I'm down man. I mean so so we. We talked about this. Let's just go into some hypotheticals here. What have you learned from video games and movies in? Let's just let's just say let's say there's an apocalyptic scenario. What kind of lessons have you learned from these kinds of things You need not molotov-cocktail you need. You need to know that for sure. Aim for the head. Short bus has gobbled javits double debt. I'm going to give you one that I learned from. I think it was left for dead. Shut the fucking door behind you when you go in somewhere. Shut the fucking door behind you if we end up in his ambi- situation for everybody's sake shut your fucking doors behind. You and I don't understand it. Lysol wink yeah. I mean you're probably past that but twinkies lasts forever. That's exactly right. That's exactly right. Oh well it's it. Gets you thinking when you had these downtimes? It gets you thinking like okay. I got kids here. Wonderful wife where the chokepoints around the house. If you know who's coming toward line how can I reinforce? It's this irrational shit. We don't want this in our lives we would never want that shit our selves. Something really happened. But it's you know you you pretend because we've all seen the movies where you know. He's up the barricade and set the traps in. I don't know it's It's been interesting because I wanted to be over but it's a ways away from that. My neighbors have an attack this yet so until I see a little twitch or something I I'm okay. You never have enough ammo tactical reload. The necessary are necessary. In Malay is a last Yeah for sure. Yeah I I'M NOT GONNA lie to you. I think we joked about it. I went and got some ammo because CABELA's happened to have a sale like the week before that and Here we go so talk to me about this neighbor though. 'cause you're kind of in a you're in a rural area right one wrote in one road out okay. I'm already thinking about where the cars can go. And we can set the spikes so we've got to bring him in you coming one tanks. We're bringing them in one way. You know I do hate the other neighbor so I I I. We're going to do that yet. It's like is he the enemy. He's not you know you can't share. Resources hate him so I hate him. I'm going to say that yes. He's the enemy okay so it creates another whole challenge logistically of how. I set up my barriers. Just more resources did you use to keep him out so let me think about growing crops crops. Yeah I don't know what the hell tomatoes. Just get a go of tomatoes. This is where we need. Janis opinion what are you grow? Crops of corn obviously poor corden. We can't just say like throwing applegate in the ground. I can go tomatoes. I've grown tomatoes. That's that's easy crops but he I love you dearly but it's not easy to go crops of Shit it's does not. Have you seen thug and farmers? That's not a fun life. What else am I GONNA do? Zombies man I gotta go I do. I do have an apple tree tree on my property. Okay do you think years digit brings up a great point gruesome? We'd because then you have like a sustainable business. You know what I mean for. Who allowed in? Somebody's GonNa eventually be loud allowed in and they're gonNA want some friction. Some of the sticky guest Ousama solid debris grow something. I'm trying to grow lettuce so I bought lettuce at the store and I saw one of those stupid youtube videos. Cut The bottom off. Put IT WATER. I did it. It's actually working regenerating lettuce. That's just the first step employers being bill bro. I like I like you say you're regenerating lettuce as if it's looking government lab it didn't it was dead it was like the little stumps thing and I took it and I got some potting soil and let the window sale started to grow. Wasn't doing well in the house. We had a cold spell. I put it outside this big now. Make the smallest. It'll be lt right now. Well you gotta grow versus after I mean if you WanNa keep that going you better get some pigs and then you'd better start growing some maters picture nasty. Do you like Bacon. I Love Bacon. I don't want to have bacon. Walk around and backyard. Pigs aren't nasty. Then you know. Can you grow bacon? I'd love to grow Bacon. I mean technically you Kinda can. That's awesome so we'll keep you updated on my crops. Yeah can't wait. What so your your best lettuce empires which you got rolling right now. Pretty much we're stocked like we. I always kept things stocks. You know some of the essentials and again my wife. She laughed at me. Like why are you doing that? I mean it wasn't like you're an asshole for doing this but I was like okay. I'll just say that those say. They'll often little little hoarding day. So it was just you know paper towels toilet paper like a box of macaroni cheese. So what we would do. We're not tripping but we would buy extra stuff that we use so say has the big boxes of green beans like five bucks. I know we're GONNA use them. I'll buy one or two moral. Put it in the basement and we'll just cycle through one now it's paying dividends because they're not for sale anymore so I mean I think that is prepping. It's just not weird kind of prepping. I'm not canning turnips or doing tomatoes to put the seller for ten years. Then you recruit the bag a rice buying things that I want to eat. And then re growing them totally normal. Yeah so what? What kind of essentials though? Talk to me about that because I I've got some too I just. I'm curious what you focused in on. So it kind of sucks because we started doing Paleo about two three months ago so we cut out all carbs boettger eating well when shit gets lean. That's not really that easy. Yeah right so we've kind of put that on hold because it makes it nice though because the ship we were buying is readily available in the store because nobody else wants it but so we put it aside so we start. Wait wait wait wait. Wait wait like what I need to know. What like some of the era route the foxborough route? You know. Yeah just a lot of the low carb things that you need to make not like a cauliflower pizza dough things like that but just just weird stuff the reason for snacks and substituting into our MEAL PLANS. I go so we went and our our deep freezer stocked with you know frozen pizzas. Sam's meatballs hamburgers hot dogs at the summer. Kicks off we're going to have meat for weeks That's not a bad thing though. No no but there's there's you know the boxes of green beans corn like. I said things that will eat every day. It won't go bed because we use them diced tomatoes and we've got a ton of Rahman just because So now our. It's kind of Nice that we've got all the basic stocked and this is the daughter coming. Tonight is kind of fresh vegetables. Just kind of keep us up to date with bananas with bread lunch meat and things like that so we just Kinda. My point now is ahead of the curve and not get to a point where I'm thinking about this week meals. I'm going to be two weeks out as we'RE PLANNING BUT WE'RE GONNA eat. It's pretty smart. It's like college as exactly like the old to what kind of make with a Kennesaw. Deans Dry Rahman and some ketchup packets. That's where I don't WANNA be. You should get some crops bananas going on making Banana Bread Sugar. Four pounds of sugar coming tonight. Banana bread tomorrow. Well chopped the corona virus addition. That's so excellent. You have to do the whole show without washing your hands and you can see who lives. Then you're the winner. So what do you? Where are you storing anything like what does your food situation right now where we are today or a week out? Ota? We're definitely a couple of weeks out. We we once. We saw the writing on the wall. We started getting certain things a lot of frozen meats A lot of frozen foods A lot of non perishable kind of things things that would just last for a while they had to Luckily for US WE DON'T. We don't really drink a lot of regular milk. We drink a lot of like Sawyer Almond Milk and you can keep that in your pantry for quite a while. I think it's even like up to fucking year or something stupid things like that. Lots of We got a few cases of water shit like that. I'M NOT GONNA lie to you though and I want your honest. You're honest opinion here but I was nervous relying on so much frozen stuff because again in my mind movies in video games. Fuck me up to the point that I'm like what if we lose power that I won't have frozen shit. You know what I mean. So it's like I know. I have a generator and things like that. But it it legitimately made me nervous to rely on so much frozen stuff. I agree. That was my my major concerns but I thought this one. We're not really an at risk of the grid. Going down serious did happen. Yeah that's a concern because we're GONNA have one hell of a barbecue when time comes then you'll be making pizzas out of cauliflower and your neighbors skin crispy crisp it. A little bit olive oil prices were gave me taste delicious. Yeah Roberts normally very gamy but not like this so on that note it's like is it that farfetched for shit too bad like that. I mean like let's say that this just. I don't think this is going to happen. Obviously but if it went sideways enough that people aren't really allowed to leave and I get the whole you know. Essential workers thing but what if those essential workers get sick? And then there's not people to maintain shit or things like that that's when it starts to make me worry just a little bit and look at our supply chain is always this close to breaking down. It doesn't take much. Well we've seen that right fucking hard. It is to get anything right now but this is. This is what the supply chain still working. Well it was just a crush on on on people's demand on demand. That was the stores. Everything is still the distribution centers are fall. The trucks are still rolling. It takes much a couple trucks missing. And you've got hysteria. I mean I think he just now people are listening to saying. Okay I know more is coming. You got people that are assholes. Were hoarding stuff. But probably ninety percent of the population is buying what they need right or they hoard it last week and now they're like okay. I got what I need. We'll move on this. You know. Get a regular groceries. Yeah absolutely hopefully. We hit this equilibrium where the strain isn't so bad on the grocery stores and God bless those people and because they're dealing some shit right now. Oh yes customers. You shouldn't complain about anything right now. Not your not your potato Rolls Artan stock deal that guess. Shitty potato get the hamburger also. Just it is what it is. It's still see these stories where people are just being assholes to the the folks that are still out there working. But we're sitting home doing what we're doing. I'm drinking beer and playing video games tough. That's people are selfish. I mean I know I don't know about where you're at but here grocery stores are hiring like a motherfucker like they can't get enough people and it makes me feel really bad for the people that are there so you know. I mean the people that are Super Nice. I don't have a problem with anybody working there. I have a problem with you. Know Johnny Fuck it not you and chat. That's at the store just being a jackass. You know what I mean. Yeah oxo Enrolls Empty Kate. Now I love those things. I have some in the freezer okay. So here's what we do is we will get those. I make sliders out of it. Using the king's Hawaiian rolls in the same place. Do just fucking delicious well once with the HAM. Oh yeah absolutely. What the honor drizzle on top. Oh Yeah Oh yes. As a matter of fact whenever we do like pulled pork Which Short Bustle love this? But any time they'd be pulled pork sandwiches fucking. I have to get the kings away in bonds. Do those things are just. It's such a good combination. Yep So we're showing Mississippi chicken. This week I found that moving. What does that I don't know like I don't WanNa hear anymore or no? Like oh like I'm intrigued. You have me. You had me at Mississippi chicken okay. So it's basically a ranch dressing. I think it has chicken broth. Ause you mix pepper cheese and you just start on the Crock pot wall. My God shred that up and get this little Tangy SORTA deliciousness new. Put that on the roles and go to. Can you please post a recipe for this? Because it's an amazing. Oh that sounds so good. That's what I find is trying to do is like what can we make? That's GonNa last three days so we're trying to find more stretching kind of meals right now right. I mean you gotta you gotTa ways to go for anything that requires lettuce. That's for sure I got John that when you're just taking the trick so the goal for this the way we bought it. Was you know when you go to get a little lettuce? Wraps that's what it wasn't? Start with and my goal was to get it back there again so I can put something in my rap that works. I'm a big fan of wraps so I did my second beer that I'm about to crack. This is very topical. It's a Wake UP DEAD. Nitro from left hand okay super delicious. This knocked me on my ass a little bit too. I think I've got a little dog. Lost Lager here nitro because we're going to. It's point seven percent so we're gonNA okay finish tonight strong with some of the big boys. We're done here. I like it so just for anybody. That's check out the chat for the first time or check us for the first time going to post the link but if a discord Reacted the guys. Been having a ton of fun in there lately Honestly and this is gonNa Sound Corny and I don't really fucking care but it's I think it's really been kind of you. Know at the risk of sounding stupid therapeutic for a lot of us to be able to Interact with one another in different ways. I know a couple of the guys have been trying to do like some virtual happy hour type stuff which I think we're GONNA play around with year as well Guys have been gaming together. We talk about all kinds of shit. You know. There's nothing that's probably too weird for us to talk about so go check us out for sure. No it's been a help because I know for myself. It's like you look at the anxiety of all this shit. You're trying to do your job. Keep your family healthy fed. Yup teach your children. I've got two kids different ages. So we're we're doing divide and conquer on the school work then the TV if it's on unless it's like HDTV Food Network it's twenty four seven corona virus. Yeah and it gets point rehearsal. I can't take this shit anymore. I've got to get away from it and that's why I found myself. I see a disqualification on my phone opened up a senior this because just an escape. It's something different well and you know what's so funny is for us. I think it comes real natural because we've all known each other virtually for I mean going on like fifteen years now. So we're used to this right where we've we've been A group of Gaming friends for a long time but like Johnny just said you need social stuff talking in the discord helps and I think it's one hundred percent fucking true and no. We're not doing beard Dick Pics but we do have a lot of beer crotch picks so if you're into that kind of thing I think we were your men but join us. Come come talk to us. Honestly I think the guys are liking it a lot. I think it's getting an outlet. I I noticed that people are starting to game together a little bit more which I love because For me personally I know gaining is one of my outlets. It's one of my primary outlets and as fucked up as is going to sound the last two days not last night but the two nights before that I didn't gain because I had just brutally rough days at work to the point that when I got off work I was just like I just WanNa fucking watch this crazy fucking tiger guy for a while and then hit the sack and that's exactly what I did but last night we gained a little bit and it. Relax me a little bit. So it's it's you know people can say what they want. But you need an outlet during all this bullshit because you have to break yourself away from what you said. The constant news the constant. You know this is what we're doing the constant this is. What's happening shit? You know what I mean. You have to kind of break away from that little bit not not to forget about it necessarily but at least give yourself something to remind you that you have other ship that you can do. Yeah because there's no good news. Good news doesn't really viewership. So everything is. It's the numbers went up this. What reclosing today. I think. Everyone's just waiting for the next shoe to drop in. I don't WanNa stay informed but at the same time I've got to get away from this because the chests search tightening just sometimes it's just what I found is really helpful. It just breathing to stopping. Yes that that big inhale hold it. Big exhale hold it sometimes. It just keeps me from going over the edge because there's so much going on. There's so many extra things in life you know you look at your calendar during the week. Okay we're not doing soccer now. We're not doing practice. We're not doing this meeting that meeting the calendars empty. But it's like there's so many more things during the day now. By the time you hit quitting time I just I just need a minute so I went out and cut the grass set out at a beer in the front yard. Just a little things just just we went for a walk earlier at lunchtime and all these families are out playing. Like we've never seen families playing right. You Know Mom. Dad Kids playing basketball mom and daughter riding a bike. Everyone down their phones or computers. Now everyone wants to go breathe right so you see what life should be like which shows you how fucked up. We really are as a society and it takes a global pandemic to get us to spend time families you need. Theresa. I hope I know it's not going to be but I really do hope this is it. I hope we look at this and say you know I got to spend. I don't know a month two months three months with my kids that I wouldn't have had otherwise because it's just passing your home. Eat Shower sports homework. Go to bed and you know now we do stuff. Yeah so short bus just by their. That's religious right there. You know what we should do okay so I had a couple of ideas not to totally off topic but short boats brought us there. We should just if every time we do one of these shows we should wear a different jersey. I have like a fucking million of them online at all. I. Let's do it also. I thought today I believe they're doing the. Nfl draft just with teams in a room. Or some shit. I feel like we need to live show through that right. That would be fun. We know when I yeah. I think we need to figure out how we can harness this for people who are hardest. This power harnesses power. We have yes yes our I. I see people on facebook. And they're doing more of these They call it when they're a party. So someone someone put on a concert somewhere and then it's a watch party and then you have people now congregating and they're looking for where they can communicate with their friends and just be connected and I really wanNA use this four. That means so what can we do to bring normalcy to people's lives for us? Because it's good therapy for us to get on your bullshit for an hour ago. Mike. I couldn't be more thankful. You guys are actually listening in typing in yesterday's a Hurricanes Jersey that way. So yes if you guys only ideas or things you want us to do. We're happy to do it. Well we do watch party or we do draft coverage are shit we talked about what will officiate your video games. We'll be the commentators and bring some life to it to such different to break up the monotony of what our lives have and probably will become for a good amount of time. It's going to be a while. I know that it work. They originally told us to is going to be like thirty days from the start of it. They're going to have his home. It's going to be much more than that for sure. Because that was when they said it was two weeks ago. And I know for US. They put us on What is a shelter in place or whatever yesterday and so? We'll actually was this morning either. I go forgetting the fucking day. Was this morning until mid April. So it's the shits not GonNa go away. I don't think we even sniff people being able to go do normal shit. And probably until midsummer honestly. I hate saying that but I'm pretty positive that that's what's going to happen. Yeah I I don't even know if that's going to be it because they think it could be a second round of this but I think even if we do get back to some normalcy where we get to be around people again. People are going to take a while to not paranoid so I think we are the way we do. Things has changed and that you always look at that person when they call it. Oh you get that thing right. So it's going to take some time even when it's not gonNA anytime soon you know. Just take a break. I think we all just enjoying it for what it is. You find that balance you find that this with your families. That's a big thing for me. It's like I get spend so much more time with my girls than I ever did before I guess we just passed repent each other. We ran true so I mean it's honestly this reminds me Isn't going to sound really stupid but I promise I'm going somewhere with. It reminds me a lot of how I feel when I'm camping is you're kind of just forced to interact with each other. You don't have a lot of fucking distractions around you. I mean I get that. We have distractions being at home. But they're minimize a little bit. You know you get the cabin fever so you want to go out and walk or whatever like you said or maybe people are playing more. Board Games are now people. I've I've read a lot like One of the streamers that I really love to watch from rebel gaming. She talks about she was talking about like setting up scavenger hunts for her kids. You know what I mean. Shit like that. And that's important because as stressful as it is for adults kids hate being cooped up you know what I mean. They hate that. Shit and you know this better than anybody. You've got little kids you know minor. Will you know they've fucking sleep till two and then played it plex? Foxtel three. So it's it's like a charmed life right now but for you. There's little kids they get bored so fucking quickly you. It's it's a good opportunity to connect For us we have. We have a weekly family dungeons and dragons campaign that we do every Saturday night almost every Saturday night unless somebody has something going on which right now. Nobody has anything fucking on. So it's you know four five six hours of us to sitting around having drinks playing a board game just interacting with one another and it's we did it before all this started but right now it honestly means a lot to me because it's you're interacting with your family and as I get older I really start to appreciate shit like that and you hope they look back on this day is hoping is and you know a lot of kids are missing graduations and proms homecomings and all that he'll be look back on it and say you know it was. Kinda cool that we got to spend. I Dunno whatever time frame. This is going to be together doing stuff. Because we gotta get creative like you said. My kids get bored so easily and the default is go to the tablet. Go to the laptop. No No. Let's go today was in a SWAT team. Uniform address nurse never-ending Trampoline. That's awesome like an airplane laser Tag Nursing. Swat team laser tag and a trampoline. Why not I'll drink beer and watch that. That's Josh accommodate. That you would actually be awesome by some weird coincidence me and her had a swat team nurse uniform thing going last night but that's totally different. There is no trampoline involved. You need that you get your own bounce year. I look good uniform though so all right. Well we'll We'll keep this topic. We'll see everyone's doing they weren't has any ideas things you wanna see. Do we have no morals will probably do him? Oh absolutely so actually I think right now. I'm glad somebody thought that was funny. How `Bout we get some Let's check questions you want to hit that you want to do a little rapid fire. Let's we on won that we do have was about weed whacking earlier this week. Oh Yes okay. You took note. Good I there's no notes I have pen know. It's better better than nothing so I don't know about this one. It's interesting for me because I had we live a townhouse forever and I would wait really cut my yard. Yeah remind me of the question. Remind me of the question. What is are you like a with your weed whacker like do you go like like birth or like fucking four so yeah okay? I had a decent size. We wear gas powered townhouse and I cut my whole grass with it. We like ten by ten yard and then we moved here and I didn't really moved in. It was just flatland. I had nothing to weed whacked so I just got a little electrical electric one. Okay and then. I started planting trees. I need something. Have a real heavy duty weed whacker. I've tried doing the whole full boarding and you get done and you need a break. You need to sit down. You're shaking and your muscles are tight got kick so I'm more of a you know I'll let it idle as walking from station to station. And they'll fire her. You come back down. I can't take that ninety miles an hour the whole time. It depends on the weed. Whacker right yeah. This is the MAC daddy with like the really big long pole. It's full bore would kill me if I don't do it. The right way I gotta wear pants were thick jeans sweatshirt because this thing flings up so much shit like a multi flying my face at no. That's sued I mean. That's pretty good. I have a gas powered one and I definitely don't go full bore on that fucker because I swear to God that I could like power small aircraft with it so it's it's too much and I got an our last house in the house. I'm in now. We don't have a very big yard at all. I have fake grass in the back and in the front it's maybe a Like ten by fifteen ten by twenty patch so I barely even use it. Some definitely a burst. Fire kind of wheat Wagon Guy Right now. I wish we're on one point three acres and I I hate it because there's a lot of flat ground and keep planting things but every time I plan things that just one more thing I can't cut with more you just got called out but you're wearing pants while weed whacking I don't care I've been done since you gotta be some Mulch going one hundred twenty miles an hour near Shinbone and come talk to me about wearing pants. I mean he spent a certain way. And if I just tilted Way would work but don't always think about that doesn't have a guard on it. It doesn't it means nothing the car it's like it's like this big and we are things like this big so innocent double it's got the Corvo sides so she's just going everywhere. Yeah it's not. I don't even WANNA honestly I don't even know mulches his mistress out there. His whole life zero escaped. I don't even wear fucking shoes when we'd wack dude so I don't know I'm kind of with had a steeler. Maybe I'll do. I'll get the GOPRO next we'd wack. I'll walk you around the yard and show you the hazards involved in. That'll be the one time you cut your fucking Legos or something. I didn't show you please do it. That's hilarious of. We do have a question in the Chat Arizona. Short bus asked a finger guns one or two fingers. So this guy or this. Yeah you are a wow what. I mean I do every day. I'm with you on the one finger with as far as finger guns go harder. I duNNO I. This is easy. That's harder the two fingers a I'm using trying to get this finger back the one finger. It's easy to a one finger three weeks ago. Yeah see so. He's very good at three sons but he's also partial to one finger and it probably makes things more efficient if I had to guess and sometimes it to- yeah God i Really WanNa talk about tiger king. How how long do we have to give it until we can like spoiler free talk about this shit our show? It's only seven episodes it really you. People have time two weeks. It's been a week about for a week so maybe another week. I another week and we really dive into this thing. Yeah 'cause there's just there's too many good things to talk about here on. If you haven't seen it please please go watch it. It's I've never watched something so fucking stupid that I was so sucked into tireless. And pull your heartstrings. Didn't it oh. I see I can't giving away you get attached to these people honestly. Yes and I'm telling you right now. The only thing that I will say is she definitely fedor fucking husband to the lines. There's NO NOKIA THOUGH. Those is you look at her eyes. She's all she's still guilty. She's crazy and sandwich money. She really has. I want to know yet. It's that whole world is something I don't know see. That could be another documentary itself. I think they should do one of those primed Carol on her and her husband's disappearance someone's going to look into this. There's nothing there's nothing I can say. Without spoiling it but yes it's she is just. You can tell that that motherfucker is a swamp which like she. There's something wrong with her. That's that's a swamp which I can you feel free to use that all right any other questions you monsters swap which yeah well. I'm glad somebody to people appreciate it.

"Support for this episode is brought to you by Chirpy Bird Health I._T.. Consulting chirpy buried helps clinicians earned their highest possible MIPS Gore to maximize their Medicare reimbursements welcome to the hit like a girl podcast where with each episode we hear from different women experts in the health I._T.. Industry we like to hear about what makes them tick. How they overcome challenges the work? They're proud of advice. They would give to other women in health I T and much more. I'm Joey Rios and I'm Robin Roberts today. We're chatting with CASTILLEJO HOTTER MEAL Offen- Tech Entrepreneur Speaker and Forbes contributor. She shares her injury national tape of what different countries are getting right and wrong in women's health also explains how she turned her passion for Women's Health and gender equity into a digital health solution for women of all ages ages and stages in their life join us as we find out more about this cool APP and how it all started awesome free now. Oh my main focus is running the wrong witches as you very well explained that the they'll help solution for female health we help guide women through different health priorities priorities at the different stages of life from puberty to menopause in helping them understand how they can built in daily habits routines and and follow our recommendations in ways that they're gonNA help manage their symptoms and improve them and increase their wellbeing. We focused on issues are usually a lead of taboo nyc incontinence sexual penans sexual dysfunction in this is why our so pumped into the Lisa community because we have a very strong sexual health component right but OSA recovery postpartum or emotional health and metro says menopause you know all all those issues that women accompanying the lice inevitably go through and yet we received no education to help us understand advocate for assaults when we need care all all of this is delivered through the off technology by in this is one of the things that we were discussing joy when we met at the fun take meet up during hymns. Kim's you know this is healthcare. There's still the perception in the sector that there is healthcare and then visual health but truly it's just healthcare a believer in a way for the mother husker consumer so be one or anybody listening is the B. Hyphen. WM Like the beginning of woman dot com you guys. I have an APP. That's kind of a coach. Can you tell us more about that. Yeah <hes> so women just get your site and download the APP than they we prompt them with a set of questions they start interacting with a with an avatar which is kind of like the coach and they answered questions that we can understand their profile in. I was saying in a way that we can personalized depending on their life. Stage and symptoms and personal needs once they've answer all those questions Russians technology creates personal care programs addressing their specific symptoms in helping them understand what their main health learnings needs to be an what they're have. It's GonNa be in the daily. Life needs to be given them a tracking tool so they can understand other habits are wellbeing. Sorry are evolving as they follow her recommendations in in go through improvement techniques or even treatment with their doctors. We that's the core of what we offer by <hes> besides excites working directly with the users we owed so work with organizations to can alike extend the message rates awareness about the importance of women's health and and change culture in that sense right like I was saying in business why I'm personally so passionate about your thoughts about why I got here <hes> I have my own share off off personal experiences growing up with intimate health issues that I never really got the right type of support for not to say that I barely could discuss them in so I feel very strongly that women need to have access to solutions educational content that aren't vetted in the are reliable are adopted to what what they need to know at each point of knife right so that we can avoid surprises oftentimes if you talk to women that have recently given birth and then they have to go back to work and in their life while not told me that was GonNa be like still pee my pants at and it's true right those aren't comfortable issues that nobody discuss this but the impact your ability ability to lead your daily life in a way or the way you did before in there for we think that you know the healthcare system should put more attention to them and be there are other stakeholders like you know when we worked with <unk> organization that Osa need to put in place programs infrastructure so that women can lead healthier lives while Oh fully acting within the <hes> professional classes of this is much more than just a period tracker. You're feeling like asking folks more about their intimate <hes> what their body during these really important time and I remember at that the fen technique upset where we had met you're you're talking about some of the differences in what other countries are able to offer new moms ink specifically you were talking about France and there will be Rehab in New Guinea share what differences are and how much of an impact they could make yeah absolutely so that is Ken lay was behind hi needs breach of why we even started in this field <hes> where we saw that women friends after the birthday get ten sessions of physical therapy for the pelvic floor covered by insurance. You know it's it's a given it's an understanding that women need help to recover this very pervasive idea. Our Culture Rounds Maternity Birth of women just like tumbling magically bounce back right and we need to educate women so they can help their bodies. They can get the the support that they need or the wisest you sleep in the hospital with a new baby a Watterson you've never had before and without a roadmap of how can you address that rain ray and then you go see your doctor six weeks later by then you know like we need to have more information. More daily guidance in that Technology Hof Permission moment when there's so many new symptoms without further clearing the healthcare system Riley usually there's this concern that there's not enough doctors Thursday and usually they're like overwhelmed overworked barely have any time with patients in so there's so many needs that people have when there's early simpsons that go unaddressed unaddressed because of a lack of supporting the healthcare system that then become chronic and end up in surgery that could have been prevented if we had the right mechanisms in place and and that's one of the things one of the gaps in the system that we are trying to cover you think about it right when I when let's say a soccer player right gets an injury on the knee the first thing they get when they need to recover is physical therapy because we understand that if you haven't been using the muscle all muscle hostage train because of an injury right you need to help it recover and yet when it comes to women in pregnancy and giving birth would you expect the entire core area which is muscles and the probably for which is a federal marshalls muscles in your back to magically right go back to where they wear in some help and this could prevent a lot of more complicated complicated health problems doug allies so with your APP. Are you finding that people are discovering it on their own or is it the kind of thing that potentially Dr could recommend to a patient so far people having this covering on their own or through our collaborations with other health organizations and with companies Jason <unk> advertising but yeah definitely we've seeing physical therapists recommended to women. I just had a conversation earlier with a midwife a wanted to you know have a Promo Code. She could send it to all the women that she works with because she knows how problematic it is. Obviously the community gets engaged in it. I mean it's it's a very important conversation and even you know beyond just the the solution we need to change the EH approaching the healthcare system when it comes to women's health a lot of the work that they do right now is related to advocacy and that's why I also I write for for four <hes> about women's health innovation and technology. I think that we sit right now. On an intersection of a rise in technology in the access is that we can have them in a rice of women's needs the finally put on the agenda politically economically and <hes> we need to make a shift we need to change the perception of these issues being leash as I was fishing the company and you know going on about doing business in the closing deals with companies are investing a ton of money on having specific programs for people with diabetes of the company says further <unk> employee wellness trends. I I found a lot of resistance towards equally covering the needs of women of the comeback to work from maternity and the arm mental barriers that we need to we need to change so that these needs are asking for it in other health meets. I think that's so important written what you just said and I don't think it's even really well acknowledged that even data for women's care let alone an acknowledgement or verbalizing is it that these needs are unique. You know there's there's a quote on your website. It changes in life that deserves special attention name. The the theme here is the female body the context of all these changes of life trip from puberty to menopause end of life all of the things we experienced that also all deserves special attention at those stages and in the Matrix of everything they do it at home <hes> echoing to the gym after giving birth he we are going to the O._B._G._Y._N.. Or returning to their point and so I love that you're so thoughtful in your approach about not just what your platforms for trying to do but even the things you're writing about. I think that it's a combined effort and the needs to be for us to be able to fully integrate away into the healthcare system be respected as a digital tool to provide the site of care. We really need to still do some awareness at the from the day a lot of the issues that we deal with right such as for moral health symptoms menopause postpartum. Those are not things that you just go to doctor once once and that's it entails a lot of daily care our daily habits which is why we believe in South Korea we believe in educating people in empowering into tools and resources that adequate for them in the are bedded by professionals so that they can know every point in their lives. I want to do the things simple that we had in our APP for for new mothers for instance as simple as how do you squat to grab your baby from the ground in a way that it's going to help your pelvic floor instead of damaging more in a moment when it's already very sensitive you know it's it's daily having said that it's posture work exercises. It's widely to manage hormone sue. When do I need to floor? What is a regular scheme to what is Red Flash? Yes you know just helping understand this a lot of day to day work. It's not something that you just GonNa like. Get the full picture off by going to doctor once you need. We need tools beyond what happens after you leave the doctor's office. How do we know the patients are interpreting beer symptoms correctly see? How do we know that they understand their house journey looking back if we don't give them till Sa- track so you know it's it's definitely a very multifaceted acid as you guys know because you're already in the field? It's a very multi faceted problem but we have an opportunity now for the first time to really address it and we need. We need as much help as possible. Stay you are so cresent in social media online with media period. You have the attention and captive audience of a lot of different vendors businesses partners in this arena that you operate and I'm sure her in that blogging. Can you tell us about a success story where somebody tracking that information over time not not just it's one where it's made a difference either. Either said that after learning about why they had the simpsons they had a more importantly learning through interacting with their APP in reader or content that there was is a solution to their problem. Women have been experiencing continents verbal in time women have been experiencing sexual discomfort for billeting thought there was is something wrong with them. You know and and try to seek help but didn't really get the right type of advice have emailed us saying hey thank you so much. Which is your guidance? I understood what was happening to implement the recommendations. <unk> are starting to slowly improve ignore that happened. You know we get a lot R._E._I.. There's still a road ahead but now I know that there's things that I can do in now. I also like be motivated to find the right specialist with no supporting me so we have a lot of those stories and <hes> it's it's so heartbreaking sometimes with especially with things such as in the Metro says or hypertrophied hypertrophied pelvic floor painful sex sometimes the average is around five to six years for women to get properly diagnosed right bouncing back and forth from work especially slow another. We're given out for two years because nobody helped her and then going back to release incapacitated into certain segments or parts of their lives Ryan on a has a very emotional impact. You have is the oldest I have a lot of very big psychological impact and they matter Ryan in and we can we can just ignore them any longer. It happens more than people think. It's not just like a niche problem. It's very common in any really debilitates militates your confidence in self esteem in doesn't allow you to enjoy certain areas of your life. That's why when women come to us right and they tell us you know I a painful intercourse. I didn't know what was wrong with me. In now I understand now I know what it can do to improve. It really makes us happy. That's awesome and I'm sure there's got to be so many more stories. You're not hearing and I think I've go so enthusiastic to hear about what you're doing because also when when you and I got an opportunity to speak in person it brought up about how really over time so many of the symptoms that women have related to different changes at stages of life of clinical problems pregnancy be normal traumatic whatever's going on that so much of this is normalized just over really decades of time or you know. Maybe maybe you know your mother had a heavy painful period so they think it's okay to do it so you don't go address these things do you find that. A lot of women are normalizing symptoms with a lot of different stages and changes of white new absolutely that's that's also one of the root causes of why we're here writing when it's it's because we've normalized that you know curious sometimes for some women mean getting extremely seek for three days and then you get prescribed the contraceptive pill that said that is not looking at the root cause a lot of women seven years after get diagnosed with immature if they could have been a managing their symptoms in be getting a solution so that big <unk> suffering fertility this is really serious. We have normalized a lot of issues. We don't listen to win when we say that there's a problem. The same happens with pink socks. We've normalized in. We told women well. You know it's painful. Sometimes usually to relax that is not a solution <hes>. It's a cycle symptoms hormonal house host Parkinson's. We've normalized everything with normalized even chronic incumbents insight while you've had two babies. You know it happens well. Why don't we think about what can we do so that doesn't become chronic right when he first arises and it's all because they're are not taken seriously in this? That's why I constantly say like we need to change the underlying mindset that brought us here which is the realization Nelson's <unk> normal the <hes> discrediting women when they say that they're paying which has already been widely researched yet still oh here we are and really invest more and pay more attention to this and I'll I'll add on for that topic which you're talking about how you know these issues that women are experiencing is pretty prevalent regardless of where they live or where they're coming from in your startup actually started in Spain. So are you finding the adoption all over the world to she's actually helping people in several different countries is the APP available globally. Essentially it's available in English Spanish so any Spanish or English speaking person can definitely use it. It's it's available. We were more heavily crescent and in Europe mostly U._K.. And staying in letting America North America by yeah it was obsolete soon Australia in eastern European appear in their own. It's mostly at this moment a language barrier but anyone who speaks English and connects <unk>. That's wonderful well. Let's transition to our next question which is really thinking about putting your magical hat on and if you could snap your fingers and have any wish come true if you could fix any a problem in healthcare or the health I._T.. World what would it be N._Y.. Where do I begin <hes> <hes>? I think that definitely the point that I was mentioning of creating this shift. Shift is the biggest one for me because I think that would have a trickle down effect where many other promises that we constantly point two would be solved right right if if we addressed patients in a different way we help empower them in motivate them to track the data understand it. You said <unk> close the asymmetry when they go talk to their physicians because at the end of the Beta physician is the expert in the subject matter but you are the expert of yourself in your body eighty in with some exceptions most people don't just make up things you know. It's just if you feel like something's office. There's probably something off. You know there's probably happening and we need to help people understand we need to buy which would be the people will be their C._e._O.'s of their journey right in truly understand where they come from and where they're going in what their goals are so they can take informed decisions and I think that we can do that together if we Eighty and we provide tumelty resources for people to be able to implement changes in their life in what's happening. It's very possible. We just need to have else. Will I like that. That's actually a really good succinct way of saying it and it sounds like what you're doing is actually. I'll yuping are setting people up to be the C._E._O.'s of their body. I think a Lotta Times some people don't necessarily know the questions that they need to be acting so even serving them a faint. Here's you know <hes> some things to consider are questions. You could be asking yourself or your doctor or like that. Is You know you seem to be like you are potentially stopping your own problem there. Ah overtime fingers crossed yeah well. You know in different situations but we're we're talking about wellness preserving your health as opposed to if you you have an accident today. Obviously you need to trust that. You're being put in the right hands than you need. Urgent Extreme help but when we're talking what about daily things. I've had have topics king. I've had Russia's skin conditions. I've had feminine no problem. Conditions and pretty much did have to help myself because nobody was asking the right questions right. There were just prescribing me something with the understanding where that was common humming pro in. I had to truck myself but not everybody maybe had access to. I'm in the field. If I think about myself before I got into the field I wouldn't have had the the knowledge or feeling of empowerment to do that for myself. You know and therefore I would be taking medication right now that I don't eat so you. We know that so much question but I think it's possible we we can imagine healthcare we can we can think of a better way of how people stay healthier as opposed to having them. Get sick and then fixing them. I love that. She said that it empowers the patient because you know the doctor wants you to track so many of these things they wanna know the symptoms they really want to clear concise background and I love the platform the educational tools that you're arming people with or allowing them to also be advocates for female. You know health themselves in this whole tech movement and I think that's so important to think that on a daily basis people can arm themselves this whole knowledge is power thing to go in nerine maybe even shorten the time from onset of symptoms and the trend of what's go- May or may not be going on with them to get the right diagnosis and the right intervention and to solve the problem that much faster and get a better answer and it's not for anyone out there listening. It's not using this tool. You should really consider it because because so many times you go in there you have two and a half three and a half minutes with your doctor and he's but he can show up armed with this information to sink explain. Hey what's going on and share it. <hes> I think the super powerful tool for women <hes> at all stages of life so we are creating a reading list for like a girl podcast listeners. Is there anything that you're reading or listening to <hes>. A blog a book fiction nonfiction that you love it. Could you tell us talk about it. I recently listened on Auto Hall to Catastrophic Health Care which is a book that Zuo Sewri through a personal Serbis explains the mayhem and madness of having to deal with you know reimbursements insurers in everything when you really have a delicate situation and I think that for anyone that's like how is this even possible. I'm originally from Spain through mentioned before and even though I knew that I was very well or the healthcare system some were was there or single payer system in insane but I just didn't understand the depth of it until I had to really educate Alphand. That book really helped in a much lighter now. Let me see I'm reading. Let me see what the title is. I'm reading one. It's more on gender biases but I think that also applies to this if not I'll send you the name afterwards but I think it's when a good because gender bias <unk> are also crescent when we do <hes> it's called blind spot and he talks about biases in biases are very fressen. I send when we visit the doctor and the way that the Russians were presented to men versus women and even through allergies they'd be existence of treatments. Finau they'd be Muslim signed by men for men and we need more representation of women so that you know treatments recommendations are adequate for different the I was reading this joy. I was reading headlines this morning saying that with the done a bunch of studies and concluded that women actually we get diagnosed with their conditions for years later than men do and I'm curious to know why why that really is Australia. Thank you for your recommendations.

Skank on a Poll

"Campaign targeted intellectual, property and confidential business information held by the private sector, including covid nineteen related treatment, testing and vaccines. A John. John Moore's or the Assistant Attorney General for national, security. Echoing, the words of Chris Wray runs the FBI and others talking about. China's just relentless thieving in hacking and the rest of it in the country. Aiming Hacking. They're not hacking their thieving. China is the trump. Administration told China to close its diplomatic consulate in Houston. It wasn't. Crystal Clear why although State Department spokesperson and Haughty Morgan. More TEGAS. How did that get thrown in? I'm reporting the news. It's fact right true true fact. Is there a picture? Maybe I have alternative facts she Th you heard the Internet She said just Google hot girl image Doboy A M- that? They ordered the Chinese to close the consulate in Houston quote in order to protect American intellectual property and Americans private information. Now given the nature of hacking in the Internet and the rest of it I'm not sure why Houston. But police officials time does and others that they received reports that Chinese consular officials were busily burning all of their papers Oh really yeah, wow! Maybe the heater was broken. Could be. It's July in Houston Hoof. It's a good point, too. And the Ash. Reminded us that in two thousand seventeen. One day after the trump administration ordered the closure of the Russian consulate in San Francisco. Black smoke was seen coming from their chimney that means they selected a new Pope Russian officials Russians don't have a pope. They wouldn't allow firefighters into the building. A firefighter told AP at the time. They were burning something in the fireplace. Isn't that interesting that you've got documents that are? So damaging somehow you have to burn them. Yeah, well, we do the same shredding burn You know when we have to leave a diplomatic outposts. But. You know I, it's funny. I was just I ran into a couple of different news reports news orioles. In which the one person was stating as a fact. That trump's closest relationships are with dictators like Putin now sick, that is, and then another one I mean moments later sang. Trump is so screwed up our relationship with Russia. It's at its worst point ever. Thinking okay, this is why people are going crazy. These days so anyway, yeah? Are Rising with China in a big way. Well I don't Wanna get ahead of what you had planned. But what's this I hear about the Wieger tape that sounds interesting. Oh, what's that story about? There are videotapes that are being widely circulated viewed of hundreds and hundreds of the weaker minority, the Muslims there in that part of China kneeling blindfolded, surrounded by troops, and then are forced to get up, was section at a time and loaded onto trains I believe there. Even their hands are bound or handcuffed. Handcuffed as well, there may be yeah, yeah, so yeah, and and the people around the world like to say things like never again about those sorts of occurrences they happen every day, and nobody does anything about it yet. We probably ought to get it there. There was a videotape saw a couple of days ago of a British news show. I can track them. Yeah, interviewing the Chinese Ambassador to Britain I'm saying what is this I'll know? Where'd you get that I? Don't know what's going on in her. We're not. We're not letting anybody into trains. I don't know where that video came from. When he ran out. We normally don't allow those videos to exist so i. don't know where you got that. Yeah, so Oh there. It is right there. Can we get that audio I? Mean I can watch it, but that's. They were not here to entertain me. We're here to fascinate the audience. Can we get that audio fascinate? fascinate seems like a high standard. Then we gotta get back to the statements from our ag Guy. But do we have that audio great? Can I ask you why people on kneeling blindfolded unshaven and being led to trains in Modern China? What is going on now? I don't know why you'll get this vidootape. You know sometimes you have a chance to your transfer of prisons and prisoners. In any country. But but just fourteen happening I'm blessed I do not know. What did you get this video clips on these these have been a run the world they've been authenticated by Western intelligence agencies. My primary concern is tracking down. Whoever released it? In torturing them. When did you get this specific? From. A COD unbelievable, all right more on the China. Admit. I didn't think you could pull off. Slave camps in the twenty first century. I thought the world had moved past that that the world would rally, and you wouldn't depends as the world making profit doing business with you. Clip Thirteen. The hackers targeted technology companies in countries with high technology industries, including in Australia Belgium Germany Japan Lithuania. The Netherlands Spain South Korea Sweden the United Kingdom and here in the United States. Good role on fourteen, the hackers operated from. Both for their own gain, and with the assistance and the benefit. Of the Chinese government's Ministry of State Security I think we switched FBI deputy director David Voltage there. That's the only clip from the rest. Are The the Guy I like that? So the hacking is going on with the knowledge of and approval of the government. Yes, yeah, not just hackers on their own right. Give Me Sixteen. We're bringing these charges today to put the Chinese leaders directing these cyber attacks on notice there are serious consequences and risks. For stealing our technological and our intellectual property. China has now taken its place alongside. Russia Iran and North Korea in that. Shameful Club of nations that provide a safe haven for cybercriminals in exchange for those criminals being on call for the benefit of the state. China's in the same group. They Ha. They absolutely are, but oh, yeah Nike's not doing business with Iran. No Lebron James isn't carrying water for North Korea yet, right? apple doesn't build their iphones in a Poon Yang North Korea. Steve Kerr isn't weeping bitter tears over you know the sins of those regimes. Now he's. He's been about America. China's the same sort of country. That's a that's a heck of a thing. So why all the talk about this? In the last couple of weeks you know we heard from the FBI director we heard from the Secretary of state were here in this? We closed the consulate. I wonder if there's some big thing that's going on behind the scenes. That, we're not aware about Yeah, that's possible. Those two aircraft carriers. We flew that big a plane over there. Unlike the professional liars in the vast majority, the media I'll go ahead and say what the other side is saying that trump's trying to distract from the corona virus failures by by ratcheting up tensions with China I. think that's ridiculous I. Think we're we're very late to to to waking up and realizing what we're facing with. Facing with China I think it's possible you know the the whole trade talks. Thing is just obviously off the rails and the desperate attempt to woo China act like a modern nation is just they've given up. In, the FBI is known a lot of these things, but they are soft peddling it for a while or at least not. Soft badly not talking about it as much publicly to to continue to try to improve the relationship, but I think now a lot of our diplomats have realized no, they're not coming around. China's pursuing China's self interest. Not only do they not give a damn about us? They would like to to squash us. So among things got coming up, I was looking at this ten ways to make your coffee habit healthier. And one of them is. Don't use a curie after that. Yeah, why? I'll look into. That will bring that to you because you're probably wondering yourself. I use one every day. Every Ding Dang day I used to in then they took it away here at the radio station and replaced it with something that. Never Works but you can get fat. See Coffee Drinks, but I can get a milk. Shake if I'm a child. this this ring headline ring true to you. People who like? Being or angering, others find social media more addictive according to this study. Yeah of course, yeah! Question yes. Like embarrassing or angering others, yes, automatically or more addicted to social media because they have more enthusiasm for us, because that's what it is down on that, too. I one. St You are it's a it's a cesspool of hate. It's as if scientists invented. What would be a way to harness? The worst people among US harness all their energy and give them a bigger platform. It's almost like it was designed for that purpose. They would probably involve computers. That's good, Jim. How good start how do we take losers who only want to tear things down and make things worse sort person. That's GonNa be your car just because it makes you feel them feel better or litter because they think it gets back at their parents or something. How would we? How would we elevate their Weirdo anger to a place where it could actually have an effect I know I invented something What's most important is that they can reinforce each other right. Yeah, so they can form communities of bitter hatred so. More on that on the way to our Texas and four, one, five, two nine five K FTC. The Armstrong and getty show. Get into later actually didn't go see all. Tucker Carlson last night so Monday night. He ended his show by saying the new. York Times has reporters on the beat of figuring out where he lives, and they're going to release his address. The New York Times then shot back by saying no. We don't. Tucker made that up. He's a crazy person. and. Then Tucker responded to that New York Times pushback last night, which I didn't see, so we will get up to speed on all right. My understanding, is he? He didn't say they're going to reveal my address. He said they're going to show where I live. And they responded. We had no plans to to publisher well. I'm sorry I'm getting into the store. You're teasing. We'll get to it soon, but it's it's. Brutal. Duxing of anybody they disagree with now. The New York Times is in that business I just don't know if this rings true to me. People who like embarrassing or angering others find social media more addictive. This is about the Internet Yeah Haha Cruelty Online I'll just read this as was written. Large Swath of the Internet are a cesspool. Preach before today. This led to Guam assessments about the state of humanity. But a new study out of Michigan State. University go wolverines. Michigan wolverines this move Spartan. Spartans yeah, if you ever had sports. I guess I'm rooting for the debate team if you had students on campus. New Study out of Michigan State and California State University at Foton. Says not so fast. The heaviest users of social media have personalities that enjoy angering embarrassing others. y'All means that humanity they they think on the whole might suck far less than people on the Internet they're trying to. Make Lemons eliminate which it makes sense to me. I don't limit I don't think you can reverse engineer. Dan Unwind from water. Okay, I, you know what they're saying. Though since the worst of us are attracted to twitter. And spout the most vile things. It's actual it's skewing. Our view of humanity humanity is not as bad as we think it is. trolls are overrepresented on your time exactly. They're getting an a sample size. That's a fairly large that I think is even more important than it sounds. Yeah for people to remember understand Yep. Researchers found that users displaying addictive behavior, also most more likely to be motivated to be cruel and callous, and the use others for personal gain, cruel and callous. I don't think about the Internet. Callous. Callous I've probably done have to think about it but cruel. I don't think I've ever had any impulse to be cruel on social media. No, no I won't get hooked into those arguments online that some people I. I like some people I admire. They go at it all day long and I just I! I won't be party to it. It's just it's ugly. Our results demonstrate individuals have a greater preference for these types of rewards cabinet. I hate the news, the term reward. Display greater problematic use of both platforms I book and Twitter Right? The researchers who note that these traits are also associated with. Hey. You trolls out there. These are the traits that are associated with you. Those of you who get a kick out of just making people angry and you feel like you've made your day somehow. narcissism psychopathy. And has been Correlated with addictive Internet use. You're spending too much time online. I think it was the great pj O'Rourke said was once and I paraphrase. Whose idea was it to get the stupidest people in the world and put them together, yeah. that's pretty interesting. Word, the worst people I don't know what the what the psychological definition of psychopathy is I know what narcissism is but. Year either that kind of person are you aren't I can't. Innocence it's you have no compassion for others. You have no concern about other human beings. I can't even get into the head space of. If I can tweet something at somebody and and I. Make Them Mad I. feel good about it. And it's not something I care about because often I. Know trolls personally. It's not even an issue. They care about I don't like if I make a good point on an issue I care about and it bother someone else. Th You know I can take some joy in that I scored one for my team. But the. I know trolls who they enter into things they are not even interested in. Or comment on videos. They don't even care about it if they made that person mad. They they're happy for a moment to win. That is weird. Yeah, you should recognize that in yourself in like try to figure out what's wrong. See a therapist or something because you're broken. If you're a psychopath, you don't see any need to see a therapist and get unbroken so so sick and twisted I. Don't think psychopaths spend a lot of time You know in self-contemplation if you aren't involved in self introspection. Does that. Achievement. To It on you. It's our favorites, saying if you don't know what introspection is, you need to take a long hard look at yourself. act like what you're saying about. The the cruel psychopaths. Yeah, they're saying. What would I do that? Your your advice is falling on deaf ears. I did call people I. Did somebody did say to a bunch of people? You're Nazi on Friday which I rarely do. Oh? Announced in advance. Yes, anybody who disagreed with you. You're simply going to reply urine artsy people using the wrong form of your which I thought was brilliant. You are not people. Oh, that's so good that that was. That's what left. The IT lifted into the level of art. A but it was people who disagreed with that they therefore schools being shut down, or or they were pretending to, because they know what made me mad. Because there's a certain number of people like I'm just saying that that's their thing. Right knew it would make me mad to say I. Think Schools should be shut so I said Your Nazi. While you are. Rolling Random. Too. And Getty! and. The Armstrong and getty show. This is something new, and and it's it's interesting. I really didn't expect coin shortage to be one of them that we have to deal with or buying it off. We might as well just pay our local people instead kind of cut out. The middleman is five dollars for every hundred dollars worth of coin brought in. So for example. My parents brought two hundred eighteen dollars coin. They got two hundred twenty dollars back. There locally buying back coins because there's a coin shortage at greater than face value. Yeah, well, nobody needs a jar coins in this probably been thinking outed. Bring these to the bank sooner or later on the other hand. You know I'm not going to gather this together and counted and drive across town to exchange this for paper. Probably you don't have to count it they. Okay, yeah. Usually for a fee well, banks sometimes don't have the fees for it, but if you go to like one of those coins star, Yes sure whatever they take a couple cents out of, but anyhow there's gotta be something in it for me unless I just really need that twenty dollars to get a twelve pack or something like that. Yeah, but I got confused about the coin shortage. I've seen signs various places. We will not take coins were. We can't give change in coins or something like that. There's a coin shortage going on a fairly. I ever heard of it. How did Cova Create a coin shortage? I don't I don't know anything about this. I had a big old coffee can full of quarters at one point? A quarters and dimes. Nothing smaller than a dime in terms of value. It was a hell of a lot of money when I finally turned it in. Yeah, we have a good way to save up for something fun. Yeah, we have a friend who throws all his quarters in a in a big jar. Only quarters, and and they'll add up fast. He just you know. At the end of the day we started quarters in their next thing. You know you got. But he's OCD, so if it pops into his head, he might have thrown a nickel in there. He has to get out of bed and go through the entire jar. To make sure there's only quarters in there. Oh, wow! Wow, which would be disappointing? I was GONNA give a pay tribute to one of our clever e-mailers, who in response to the story? Perhaps you heard that we were forcing. China closed their consulate in Houston. And there have been fairly vague statements made about spying hacking and the rest of it and not directly tying it to Houston. Anyway. They've got to shut that down Oh there. It is and Is it Mary? Why shirt a hope, they don't release some highly contagious biological agent that kills our citizens in our economy. And she's Mary from Boise signs off with shut up. China! I have a I have an answer for why there's a coin shortage. At least it's the one that USA Today is claiming as the crow virus spread, resulting business closures the cripple economic activity in the US circulation of coins dropped off significantly. The US meant also decreased staffing and response to the pandemic and businesses have reopened. Demands have exceeded now the time for those of us who've been wanting to do away with the penny to strike. This is our moment. Just don't bother making anymore. Don't make more pennies. Let them disappear. frigging worthless, what was paying five bucks on a on a hundred that banker? It's not a terrible return for investment. Depending on how long you've had your coins, sure somebody could promise me five percent every year in the stock market for the rest of my life I'd sign up right now. A. Couple of other emails of no Joe suggests the walk signals swapped and watching. Those are anti Indian because the don't walk hand is red, so it's anti American Indians and I like just the sarcasm of it. We're in favor of overwhelming. The woke crowd by claiming everything racist all the time which they're doing anyway, but yeah any ridiculous opportunity. You get to claim something's racist to absolutely do that. speaking of Racial Issues Evan from beautiful Norwalk Connecticut. Says if players he's talking about the players kneeling now in baseball during the national anthem, a handful did including my favorite team including one of my favorite players, and it just annoyed me and I might. Enthusiasm has dropped. Whether that will be permanent or not I do not know a bit of a sports junkie, but but Evans says if players Neil because of systemic racism during the national anthem. If they go with the black national anthem song idea. Can Any player kneel in protest of black on black killings of lack of black fathers, anything like that and make it clear. That's a good question. If you're in the NBA, you could get the slogan printed on Your Jersey Right. Do I understand that they are going to pipe in crowd noise during the game semi watch baseball last night. It was one of the final exhibition games I guess and Yeah, they had just what we. CALL IN THE ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS WALLA! They had crowd. You could hear. This the murmuring of the crowd during the game. Do they have cheering? If there was a big hit, you know what I didn't notice. Yeah, they do, do they yeah, I'll just I'll watch at least some just for that. It sounds fine, but it looks weird because you can see. There's nobody in the stands for radio broadcast I don't think anybody would notice a difference, but while because you can see the empty stands in someplace, even have like cardboard cutouts of various people in the stands and stuff, but but yeah, it looks much worse than it sounds. I was listening to a report on soccer. They've been doing this with the big big league soccer European countries for. Now and they've got it nailed down the soundboard. Guys got like thirty buttons in front of him of different kinds of sounds, different levels of cheers, different levels of booing, plus they're weird chants and songs that they do all the time and soccer crowds, so there's not that wide variety of reactions and sports. No, no, it's it's doable. Covered, even decision yeah! Let's see Bubba. Oh, mentioned very late in the show yesterday that my wife who's volunteered as part of an organization. She's with a fundraiser. She's been a whole. Wanted I accidentally, said my beautiful and sexy wife. WHO's not old. WAS A poll worker. Is. opole were okay. That's right now to lead you to believe. She's a stripper. She's an election volunteer. and. If you're announcing ripe for a stripper you to worked into it in a better way, yeah! Just throw that out. My wife is a stripper. Stripper! That's even more impressive. Number people I've known who Mary Strippers, but you don't actually marry somebody who's never been a strip right now. Several kids Ryan's decide you know what I'm GonNa do. It's like my mom in her fifties, she went to seminary. She became an ordained Minister Inter fifties fifties s some women. Decide you know what second career time I'm going to be a SCANA poll. One what I think I got to push back against that. What out? You're not a skunk? Because you're not necessarily so strippers, gang, some or not true? That's yeah. That was overly broad was. It was probably cruel repressive, perhaps racist and I apologize. Shaming yes, yes, Oh, that's I've got my You're hanging a second. Open the shame bell APP. That's GONNA. Turn on! This actually on my phone. A few dancers that were otherwise completely upstanding human beings. They just danced although they did say. The vast majority of their workers were prostitutes. Yes, I've already. On, so I think that's plenty I. Take Full Responsibility. So anywhere where we this note my wife is was going to volunteer at the local polling place again. Election you know monitor And the head. Various places are doing voting differently in the county where I live, and I don't know if it's a whole state, or what I honestly don't know. Voting is now going to be four days long. Three ten hour days I think in one thirteen hour day, and for some reason, and this was not explained. There's a two week training program full days eight hour days to weeks of eight hour days to train people that. Whole worker parts ridiculous. There's no way you couldn't explain it all to me in a morning than we have lunch and go home. Yeah, I'm astonished, but the multiple days all day long. That's so. We don't ever end up with crowds right? There's no reason for there to be a big crowd with his breathing on each other three days. Fair enough, yeah, I get that the training seems ridiculous right, but no hope says most poll workers are retired. Retired people awake they can expect it to take on the one hundred and twelve our commitment. It is to volunteer paid actually, but it's minimum wage I know some polling places or crowded, but my voting places th- hardly had any people in it. No less twenty three years. Yeah, more I vote is never been crowded one time, and then has no hope is how she signs. This is a normal human being. She offers reasonable solutions. What's needed this common sense areas with crowding polling places need to have additional locations open. How about school gyms of schools are running closed that day? Teachers Command the polls. If they need help, bring in some state. Workers weren't doing anything. And assist. It's frustrating, but I have no idea. I'm look what I do for a living. I had no idea that there was going to be four days of voting and to volunteer. Volunteer again. You don't get paid. You're not volunteer. They're not going to get poll workers. Out Ban. Who He's talking about the the election trump is is running for reelection to hear this against Joseph Biden Joseph R Biden George. M George will's out in his column in The Washington Post Today. Saying he's voting for Biden. Republican George will go ahead But he he's positing what I have that Joe Biden is still the hypothetical. Would you vote for? A democratic. CANDIDATE VERSUS DONALD OR DONALD TRUMP. He is still the empty vessel the. The unexamined candidate and I think he's going to be able to stay that clear up till election day and I think if he's smart. That's his best strategy. If you're not familiar with these things, many many many times, politicians are candidates peak in terms of their popularity when they announce because you haven't had a chance to sort through their laundry, and and look for skeletons in their closet, or hear them say ridiculous things or whatever you haven't watched them Kowtow to extremists in their own party, or what have you so I think it's interesting that the guy I've heard say at my entire adult life. Because Joe Biden so old. He is Ben Senator since I was. Seven years old. And I'm not young. You're old is. Joe Biden's a guide says don't compare me to God Almighty compared to the other guy well, he's doing a good job of not making it about being comparing trump to biden its trump to something else. Man, not trump. Matt and Beautiful Rockland California sell a bumper. Sticker is not kidding. He said I saw my first Biden. Bumper sticker today, it said. Don't f this up, Joe. If that isn't enthusiasm for a candidate I don't know what is Jonathan Swan tweeted yesterday and he's a fair broker of things he tweeted out is with axios right all right? Yeah Joe Biden did not take questions after his remarks today, he would at another time. But he was headed to another event, so didn't take any questions. Lot and Jonathan Swan points out. Lots of White House briefings happened today, Kaley mckanie, a brief, briefed earlier and took questions vice president. Pence is taking questions in south. Carolina right now. President trump took questions in the afternoon Biden took no questions, so he's trying to point out that you know. I binds not taking any questions here. I think you're an old school out of touch journalist. If you believe that matters I don't think you're going to get dinged at all for not facing questions. At all no I. Think you're right. Clearly, I don't think you'd get dinged for saying I'm not GonNa Bait and I don't think he get dinged for not taking questions. All I think you could come out in favor of Communism Child Labor and rape as Biden at this point and the New York Times at funeral. Maybe worried about that tomorrow, but probably not right. The the media is not going to harp on it and I don't think voters care. And all Biden can do by taking questions and debating harm. His chances come off as an old guy. If I'm Biden. If I'm if I'm directing him, I don't debate. Don't take questions clear November, and if you go, that's cowardly and pathetic. He'd say. Yes Mr President it would be. I would say. Troubled Times troubled times. There is a sign that the whole trader. Joe's is racist thing. was fake. Really. We have an allegation that it was even self generated by trader Joe. Not Saying. That's clever if they did I might tip my hat to them if they did that. Got, their name in the news, a whole bunch of times by being called racist in responding to an and then. Come off as woke. That's pretty clever. Yeah, I wonder we'll talk about that a lot of good stuff to come hangar. The Armstrong and Getty show? Side there's a point to make here I know this is a really popular among the Fox Eytan crowd. Because, there's some host on host violence hearing. You're about to about to witness, but but I have an ultimate point that I. Think is very positive for Fox. This is Tucker Carlson wrapping up his show last night as he hands off to Sean, Hannity and they do what we call the business across over. We've done before various host. Roy We say. Tim Johnson's coming after. Hey, Tim, you're coming up. What are you GonNa? Talk about today, Tim. I'm GonNa talk about cancer. Culture I hate it. We should through taking. All, tell you this. Yeah, the behind the scenes even with the people you really like it's just painful. I have never met a broadcaster. Who's like I like doing? And with people that you don't really like it's, it's. It's awful. It's awful, but anyway so tucker just got done wrapping up several minutes of beaten up Jeff bezos forgetting so wealthy during the coronavirus and and and basically he's making the the. Going to claim that that's prejudicial. Making the point, you can determine whether or not it's a coin. Tucker Making a point that The Washington. Post scares you into watching, and then it makes the owner richer as more people buy more stuff on Amazon and CETERA. Et Oh, that was his point okay I. mean some of its more clicks for the newspaper and some of. Of its you buy more disinfected and everything on Amazon, or don't go out to the stores. He's been making that point for for a couple of months now. Okay anyway, so he hands it off to Sean Hannity right as he wraps that up and while Hannity's talking here. You need to know that Tucker Carlson makes a face of like what Oh what now. Yeah not happy. So congratulations, the under capability. Have a great night. And now Sean Hannity takes over from new. People who make money they provide goods and services. People want need and desire. That's Americo freedom capitalism. And as long as it's honest, right people decide. I took a great show. Slow them the. This is now just. Courtesy the look on his face. And I have no idea what their relationship is like. It's gotTA borrow. Bother Hannity a little bit. The Tucker is now the King Dog Fox in the most watched show in the history of Cable News and all this different stuff, but I I don't know if that plays a role or not, it's. I would say if I were the host. And I say something enduring the cross over the next person like completely contradicts that basically says what I just said is wrong and un-american, but with no time to respond. I. Mean because you could say if I were in that position, I would either ignore it. That's the best choice. Just ignore it and what you're going to do on your show. Tucker, so coming up on our show, or you could say you know there are. There are other points of view on that I. Look Forward to talking about that later in the show. You know if you felt like you had to address right, but to just. Say I'm not sure I. Agree with you on that, but we can talk about it down the road. Yeah, but my overall point is. fucks gets killed by the Fox eight media that most of the time. It's so clear to me have never watched Fox. Oh, yeah! They have no idea what Fox actually is. There's a wider. Variety of opinions on Fox than there is on MSNBC or CNN by four right. You've got the two biggest hosts on Fox who have a completely different point of view on some major issues including that one, I mean there are one hundred and eighty degrees apart on some of the biggest issues in America right now, the two biggest hosts and they regularly have on on. Hannity show, but on Bret Baier show. Show they regularly have on the panel somebody representing the other side on CNN. You'll have a panel of eight people eight, and every one of them has exactly the same point of view. They think trump's an idiot in Nancy's right. Right every single one of them. They don't get one person out of the eight who would represent the other side Fox News News coverage is frequently harshly critical of the administration. The Chris Wallace interview was the hardest interview that I've seen. Have Naslund point in bears done the same thing with a whole bunch of Republicans. And the Democrats so I just I don't I. DON'T RECALL ON MSNBC to hosts to the big host ever having a disagreement over major issue. Ever it's this one. I want I want to get to it before the segment is over the whole trader Joe's packaging is racist. Because trainer Jose is on the Mexican food and traders, Jato is on the Italian food and anybody who thinks that's racist is dumber than a goldfish. Got This note from one of our beloved listeners who said Hey guys? Check out the the The twitter account that's at the center this the entire profile revolves around criticizing trader Joe's. This girl has eighty-one followers. Started this change Dot Org. Petition her profile pic looks like somebody from the Stalin youth like some sort of Russians stock photo, interest and this guy says it might even be. TJ's themselves to get all the publicity and look wall. That's pretty clever. There's something fishy going on here. And Getty.

Russias Attempts To Influence 2020 May Already Be Paying Off

"Hi Is Diane on my mind. Us intelligence officials are warning of a new election interference threat. And it's calling from the same source as two thousand sixteen Russia. Four years ago the Kremlin sow chaos with cyber attacks leaked e mails and is information campaigns. On social media you as intelligence determine the aim was clear ick to tip the Scales Tour Donald Trump now. The intelligence community is warranted similar efforts but chose who Russia is trying to help and why has become. Its own political fight. Which is maybe the point. Shane Harris Cutters Intelligence and national security at the Washington Post. You Join Me Tuesday morning. Shane Harris I must say we are totally confused about what Russia is or is not doing to interfere with the twenty twenty election. Go back to the briefing earlier this month when a senior intelligence officer warned lawmakers about Russian interference in support of Donald Trump. Right in your right to be confused. I think it was a fairly confusing briefing. But here's what we understand. This briefing for members of the House. Intelligence Committee was led by a senior official from the Director of National Intelligence Office in a number of other officials. Were there to as part of the schedule plan to brief members on what we see as threats to the twenty twenty election now senior officials had said prior to that that they believe Russia would try interfere in the twenty twenty elections and we can talk about what form that might take but in the course of this dialogue this senior official said that it was her view and she was speaking on behalf of the intelligence community. Remember that the Russians had quote developed a preference for president trump that were shelby. Pearson correct shall be Pearson. Who is the elections threat? Executive is her title and her job is to kind of sit on top of all these agencies and coordinate their efforts for defending in twenty twenty and securing the elections and this statement of developed a preference sparked a lot of conversation a lot of debate among members understandably with people wanting to know. Well what do you mean by that? What's the raw data underneath that conclusion? That leads you to believe that. And it led to some confusion about whether she was saying the Russians. Were actively doing things right now to try and get the president elected or to try to help him. And when of course when we talk about that. We have flashbacks to twenty sixteen in all the different so called active measures Russia. Took you bet. So this this kind of assessment of developed of preference leaves us in a bit of a quandary. Well what does that mean? Do you mean that they would like to see. Donald trump reelected out of all the possible field. Or do you mean that they are trying to actively help donald trump get elected and it seems right now that she meant more towards the former but of course it gets spun by a lot of people in the room as more the latter and Republicans were very incensed by this especially the idea that This elections official was kind of as they sought giving ammunition to Democrats to then go out and say the Russians are added again in trying to Collude with the president or help the president so it all kind of got a bit sideways from where the briefing should have been whoa she'll be Pearson actually invited to present this material or did she go to lawmakers voluntarily well. She certainly went voluntarily that she wasn't subpoenaed briefing is required by law. The intelligence officials have to come up and give it a scheduled time now. They work out the schedule with her office. Interestingly it was one day before another scheduled briefing for the president personally in the Oval Office on the very same subject so they heard before the president her they heard what Shelby Pearson had to say on this issue of quote unquote preference for President Trump before he heard it but importantly the president has been briefed by his national security officials on threats to the twenty twenty election prior to all of this. So it's not like this is the first that he'd heard officials saying we think that the Russians might try to interfere in twenty twenty that now. You've got Robert. O'brien the president's national security adviser contradicting what you'll be Pearson said yes. And it's very curious thing that he did if you parse his words very carefully he is saying. Well I haven't heard and I think we can mean to say he's not aware of unless he literally means. I have not heard with my ears. But he's not aware of intelligence. That backs up what she said. Which gets you to the point. Where some officials of NASA maybe she over characterized that a bit but what he's saying essentially. I don't any evidence that the Russians are actively trying to help president trump now what he also said though is that he had heard from the FBI that the Russians were trying to help Bernie Sanders and then he parroted some comments. The president trump had made earlier at a At a rally where he said wouldn't they prefer Bernie Sanders after all? He honeymooned in Moscow. Referring to both trips that Senator Sanders a taken to then Soviet Union and his you know arguable affection for some of their policies. Even so it's very curious if the national security adviser who has access to all this intelligence is saying I haven't heard anything about the Russians helping trump but I have heard about them helping Bernie. There's some disconnect in there and that looks a little bit more political than policy driven. Okay so Shane did. Shelby Pierson present evidence showing that the Russians head quote developed a preference for trump. Our reporting indicates that she did not. We don't have any reporting to say that she pulled out you know Raw data or reports on that. Now it's important to emphasize to that in a briefing of this nature. She probably would not come equipped with that kind of information she probably is privy to it but she would not come sort of ready to show their work and we think that this comments really happened in the course of a dialogue which has led some people to say that she may have gotten a little bit ahead of where they intended to be in this briefing so in either of these situations if one or the other happens to be factual what former would. Russia's efforts have taken our best understanding of what the Russians are doing right. Now is something that they did try. Dick did achieve really in two thousand sixteen but on a smaller scale and that is the manipulation or the ceding of disinformation and propaganda and divisive content into social media so here. We're talking about twitter accounts. Or facebook accounts that are pushing out either pro-trump Pro Sanders content or that is designed to divide people to inject Political controversy into the conversation. We see a lot of these memes. That are out there attacking one candidate or one position and there is some evidence from researchers that the Russians are behind some of those accounts. But the People. I've talked to WHO TRACK THIS SAY. It hasn't reached the level that it did in Twenty Sixteen. Which is not to say that we should be overlooking it but we're not quite at that volume and there are other things that the Russians in twenty sixteen that we don't yet see them doing twenty twenty Shane. Can you give me an example of what these bots might look like what these fake? Or misleading messages. Might they sure will a good indication sometimes for one of these fraudulent accounts on twitter Might be an account that doesn't have very many followers but seems to be tweeting. An awful lot It might have a picture attached to its account it might not it might have certain hashtags are slogans in the bio like make America great or sort of an an avowed preference for one candidate or another but they tend to be pushing a lot of divisive content misleading content. I what Oh you know you might see things like with during the two thousand sixteen election. Of course we saw famously people pushing the idea that Hillary Clinton had Parkinson's disease or that. She was suffering from some kind of an illness. We saw a lot of content around issues of justice and police brutality. I've seen memes out there now. Attacking Alexandria Cossio. Cortez for instances some kind of extreme liberal who is going to enact all kinds of aggressive policies. There are things that you would expect to see people who are engaged in the political debate. Maybe points that they would be making but sort of amped up to a ten and engineered at hitting the most sensitive places that we argue about on some of these contentious issues. What's been the reaction? So far from Bernie Sanders senator. Sanders has said after we broke the story that the he was briefed that the Russians were trying to help him In the campaign. He said he had heard about this about a month ago. Yeah I found that interesting. Yeah I did too I it's not clear to me that this was classified information. He was given. And and frankly if the intelligence community is going to brief candidates you'd think they would need to do it in an unclassified way because not all of those candidates have security clearances to receive classified information. But he didn't he didn't push out the information he hasn't said why but he was very forceful in his denunciations of it and wanted to make very clear that he sees president trump as somebody who is accepting of this kind of Russian assistance whereas Senator Sanders is saying I rejected. And I'm telling Latimer Putin's stat of American politics but he was really upset frankly to see see. The news wasn't happy about it. He seemed to imply at some point that the Washington Post had. Maybe a sat on this information for a while. That's not accurate. But he you know very forcefully rejected any efforts by Russia to assist him house after Bernie. Sanders knew this the the Washington Post Noah that what he says. He was briefed a month ago. We learned about it much more recently than that. And I can't speak to to to sources on this but safe to say that once we caught onto this. We moved very rapidly to confirm it and to publish the information. And to get a statement from the senator the president becomes so angry that he fires Joseph Maguire the acting director of National Intelligence and replaces him with a guy who has how much experience in national intelligence none to speak of at least not as somebody in a traditional role of being a leader of a huge apparatus. Denies off as this is Richard Grenell. Who is the ambassador to Germany? And he has served in various posts in administrations in the past but never in one in which intelligence is the primary function so he comes to this not as an expert but really as a political loyalists for the president in somebody who has been a reliable advocate for many of his policies Particularly on social media. Were Rick Grenell is really known to sort of get into scrapes with Critics of the president or sort attacking journalists over their coverage of the administration that is his profile not one of national intelligence. You know it does make you wonder whether the ultimate goal of the Russians is simply to divide Americans to try to indicate to Americans that their democracy doesn't work very well. I think that is probably the primary goal. I mean I've been covering this since twenty sixteen and when I talk to people in the intelligence services in several countries around talk to people who track Russia very closely. It does seem that an overarching goal. Here is to make Americans cynical about the political process to make them think that it's not representative of the majority that it's rigged to use a phrase that we hear the president actually using a lot and one has to wonder if maybe it is working. I mean we are this incredibly polarized society when you see the messages and this sort of rhetoric that these Russian actors are trying to inject into the system. It is certainly not engineered to make people come together in agreement around an issue. It's meant to find the most polarizing issues and force people to take sides and I think that that is An outcome that the Russians would like to see very much shane. Ula Heb as you said. Been watching those since two thousand sixteen and then prep even further back than that. I wonder if you can explain. Held is intelligence is gathered and whether they were really is room for different interpretations as to how the Russians are proceeding. And what it is. They're hoping to accomplish while on the on the question of how is this information gathered if we kind of divide it into three buckets of activity that we've seen the Russians engaged in the one. That's actually the easiest to monitor is their use of social media. Certainly this was the case in two thousand sixteen and much more now. There are actually are independent. Researchers who studied this they have access to twitter. Data sort of in total volume A lot of university scholars looking at this lot of private intelligence firms and people monitoring that space and the government can monitor that as well and there are kind of key telltale signals that people have learned to look forward to differentiate what you might call authentic social media traffic from this more engineered Russian stuff. So that is one where there's a lot of eyeballs looking at it and social media companies have actually developed more techniques for trying to find out when something is likely coming from a foreign actor The second category and we saw in two thousand sixteen was the Russians hacking into the e mail systems of the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman and stealing those internal emails and disseminating them via wikileaks. That can be a lot harder to detect. Because oftentimes someone doesn't know that they've been hacked until the information has been published or has been used against them in some way but we can monitor for it there and I think that many of these political organizations have had to get a lot more sophisticated in their own security to try to detect. It and the third thing was that and perhaps the most concerning really was Russian actors trying to break in some case successfully probing what we call the election infrastructure of states. So here we had examples in twenty sixteen of the Russians getting into the systems. Where voter rolls are actually stored at net is so frightening very frightening. Because they're the the the concern at the time. Was what if a hacker could get in and start deleting names from the voter rolls. Sure when you show up to go vote. You're not on. The list are not allowed. Vote In both suppressing the vote in that respect but also then causing you know tremendous panic if suddenly the word gets out that people are showing up in large numbers and they can't vote. People are going to start questioning whether the votes themselves are being counted. And of course. That's the nightmare scenario that you would actually find a foreign government able to manipulate vote counts themselves. We have not seen that happening in twenty twenty and the evidence that is often after the fact we sort of see these things when analysts go back through computer logs and find out if there was somebody probing the system but it happened weeks or even months earlier but the other part of this is that the Russians are no dummies. They develop new techniques all the time. So while we're looking at what they've done in the past perhaps they're working on brand new ways to disrupt the election. That's exactly right and in fact it reminds me of a conversation. I was just having the other day with a researcher who tracks social media and what he said was look. We saw a lot of activity for instance in twenty sixteen on twitter. And they've seen a pretty significant drop off in the Russian activity on that particular platform compared to where it was for years ago and this person said look it. Mike go up again. But if I'm thinking like how you know a spy would think you know. Don't try to trick that you tried the last time. Move to a different platform or some kind of other mechanism for for sewing this kind of content and so we shouldn't necessarily expect them to just pull the same place. They didn't twenty sixteen so I have a particular concern about ballot and electric voting. Are you concerned about that? I am and that concern comes from talking to people who was monitor this very closely electronic balloting when it came out I think particularly in the wake of remember we all remember that awful recount in Florida and to improve holding the punch cards up to the light and the phrase pregnant Chad entered. The Lexicon the issue with electronic voting. You know we're supposed to be that it was gonna make this easier and more dependable in terms of you being able to push a button and the computer log with your choice was well. That's great except if you don't have a paper receipt from that machine to verify that your choice is in fact what you touched on the screen and it wasn't incorrectly tabulated. You have no real way of going back and having some kind of audit trail of what's your intended. Vote actually was and so the experts who got a voting machines in particular the thing that really causes them to sound. The red alert are states that have switched over to electric balloting. But don't have paper backups. They say look. You don't have to go all paper but if you're going to use these machines you have to give people something that they can hold their hand look at and check and then go back to If there is ever doubt about what their vote was who are the companies manufacturing these machines. It's not necessarily one company. I think that is That is an issue here. The the issue tends to be more that the states have these very disparate policies. And there's no one uniform system for tabulating votes. There's a lot of voting software that gets involved in this as well And we've also seen though is some companies trying to now market Kind of systems that can be put on top of these voting machines to try and add some kind of audit trail to them. An amber of people who share these concerns are saying we all should go to paper ballots that we mark on our own. That's right because that is mostly foolproof way of doing it. The Florida exception. They're demonstrating that. We don't want to do something where we have to punch through. But maybe it's more like scantron like we are used to when we take standardized tests in school right. The paper ballot gives you a lot of security. Because you can hold it you can look at it. You can have a copy for the voter. You can leave a copy at the polling place and you know last. I checked I mean. Hackers can't come in manipulate paper. Ballots could be stolen or something like that but the probability of something like that seems to me. is from a foreign actor more remote and someone actually being able to hack into a system more. Shane Harris when we come back after a quick break. Now here's the rest of my conversation with Shane Harris. He covers intelligence and national security at the Washington Post. You know as you said. We saw lots of this going on in two thousand sixteen. Do you think the American people are now a little bit more wise about what's happening and can identify and pay less attention to these kinds of wild claims than they did back then meisters. I hope so but I'm genuinely not sure yet. It one reason for that is we haven't seen the Russians amping up our efforts in twenty twenty to the point where they were in two thousand sixteen so I think it remains to be seen whether people are sufficiently skeptical in literate enough to disregard this information and also frankly we haven't seen the press covering it the way we did in two thousand sixteen where I think you know implicate my myself in this as well because I covered this where I think. We didn't do enough to remind people that for instance things that they were seeing on wikileaks were being disseminated through Russian intelligence and that this was part of a campaign to manipulate people so I hope so. I think that people have also gotten more used to the idea that you can't believe everything you see on social media and that it's a place where a lot of mischief And a lot of kind of shenanigans that can go on but you know whether or not this has. An effect is even hard to gauge. You in a normal time even twenty sixteen. It's not clear. Did this Russian disinformation and did this. You know these active measures actually change people's votes You know that's hard to gauge as well. Shane tell me what companies like. Facebook and twitter are doing to try to ensure that the material shown or distributed on their site is factual. Well that is a very good question. facebook in particular his cotton a lot of grief for saying that they are not going to remove political advertising or political content that has falsehoods in it which they would do for commercial products is my understanding. Both facebook and twitter have said that in terms of their their sort of there's policing content for content Which is were. Facebook has gotten a lot of this criticism for not doing enough but they also said that they're going to try to do more to identify when a particular message is coming from a foreign actor or appears to be designed to interfere in the election. And they say they will try to move to then get those accounts taken down or that content removed. This is an incredibly daunting task though. Because you're talking about computers trying to catch machine learning and some forms of artificial intelligence and kind of do a first pass at what looks like the authentic accounts but then you actually need. People human analysts sitting there making judgments about them so that you're not kicking off you know. Legitimate people are legitimate actors and a political debate. The pressure has been enormous on these social media. Companies to do this sense really since twenty seventeen when it became clear how much the Russians had exploited it and now we're seeing evidence to that other countries Iran and China notably are trying to do the same so they find themselves in a real bind. Here is a technological challenge but the political heat on them is really intense. And I have to say. I think that it's going to be difficult for facebook going in particular into twenty twenty with this position that they will not remove factually incorrect content. Just because it was put up by a campaign that seems unreal. Very hypocritical position for them to take. What would you like to see them do realistically I think? A lot of experts have said that they should use the same kind of content standards for political speech and political advertising as they would for product advertising. Now the some of said. That doesn't mean you have to go as far as you know taking down at individual users post if he or publishes something that's not true. I mean plenty of people. All the time. Say things that aren't accurate and their social media feeds but if the trump campaign say or the sanders campaign were put up an ad on social media that contained demonstrable falsehoods. A lot of experts. Have said look. That's not hard for you as facebook. Take down And then if we're talking about that as being some kind of action to suppress free speech. What Curtis come back with and say is look facebook. You're a private platform. You get to set the rules on content for your platform. You don't allow pornography you don't allow racial invective. You don't allow images of abuse or cruelty to children or animals. There's all kinds of categories of things that you say. We will not allow on this platform. So why are you willing to allow falsehoods by a political campaign? And that's a question that I don't know that they have answered to the satisfaction of people who watch this closely me. What's happened at Fox? News in regard to Sean Hannity and showed agenda. There's been a lot of talk about Sean. Hannity is sort of the unofficial chief of staff of the White House because he's somebody that president trump consults We know from news reports on a fairly frequent basis about his ideas about steps that he wants to take so that's really blurred line at Fox. And there's been a lot of reporting on whether you know questioning whether Fox News is in some ways acting as kind of a political arm for the White House so to Trinidad Victoria tenzing. His wife are people who have been commentators and have appeared on Fox as well but who are also tied to Regia. Liani the president's personal attorney and have been linked up with some of these other more colorful characters from the Ukraine saga. That we've just gone through when you look at Fox News and the people who are appearing on it and the people who were hosting it it. They are so kind of categorically distinct from the other networks in terms of their closeness to the White House to the president and his associates. And it's really lead in journalism in my community to a lot of questions about whether this is a this is more properly called journalism Or frankly whether it looks more like propaganda these are people who are coordinating their messages with you know White House. Aides and officials and allies including the president. So how comfortable is Fox News? With those charges being hurled at them in regard to being an arm of the White House as opposed to an independent television network. Well we've seen the leadership at Fox News reject this characterization of them as some kind of propaganda arm. You would expect that obviously a and look there are. I mean journalists. Who are doing straight news on Fox? News? I have colleagues who work there who I know from my own. Conversations with them are very uneasy about what they see going on now in more of the opinion blocks in the primetime hours in the evening in particular the president. Interestingly has lately been very displeased with Fox News and and has taken to twitter on a number of occasions to criticize particular hosts including Neil cavuto saying that. They're not doing enough to treat him fairly. And that you know in really kind of you know saying the quiet out loud as we often say about the president saying You know maybe it's time for me to switch to other networks knocks. This one America News Network very much that he thinks has been really heavily promoting his position. So you know when you see the president going after Fox News. That's that's a new dynamic But really is making clear that I think from his perspective he expects the network to essentially be A loyal arm of his message and his followers perhaps expected thing thing. I think many of them do. And what's interesting is that you know. The president has the ability with his social media presence and twitter in particular to really be the arbiter for a lot of his followers of who is and who is not a credible source of information. So you know the New York Times. The Washington Post where I work you know other networks and PR. Right are all people who have come in for criticism when the president starts in criticizing Fox News and even trying to tar them with the so called Fake News Label. I think we have to believe that. That's having some influence on some number of his voters. We'll be curious though. Is the twenty twenty campaign plays out. Is there a lot of people who were loyal? Fox News viewers before they were of Donald Trump supporters. And so I wonder if he will be able to. You know really break the ratings of Fox News or not or whether or not people will sort of tune that out. But he's definitely like a wants to be seen as somebody who is an arbiter of what is true and what is not in. Of course you know. Political scientists have looked at. This has said you know the end goal. There is for the president to then to his followers. Be the sole source of true information. Of course The president has already indicated that he'd be delighted to have their versions help in reelection. He certainly has not done anything to dispel the idea that he is both skeptical that it's actually happening but wouldn't turn it away. Did which are sort of contradictory Thoughts to hold onto your hat but there we are and I think it was. It's been notable to me that the president has been very dismissive for years and most recently with these new reports coming in the past several days about the Russians having a preference for him but he is seemingly willing to accept the intelligence that the Russians are trying to somehow assist Bernie Sanders. This information is all coming from the same place coming from his intelligence community on if he's willing to believe it when it is something that might be more damaging to an opponent but not believe it if it's more damaging to him. I think that shows you that he is. He's being highly selective with with the intelligence. And not being candid about it Shaneco. Is there anything else you want to say this morning? Well I think for people who are confused or even frankly skeptical about what foreign governments are trying to do to interfere in an election and I know lots of people I talked about this quoting friends and family who say oh come on what can the Russians possibly be doing anyway. It's good to have a sense of healthy skepticism but remember that the whole point of these interventions is not necessarily to try to go in and to manipulate a vote count. It's to make people doubt what they see with their own eyes. It's to make them doubt the truth and it's always important particularly in an election in particularly in this one. We're we're we're almost certainly going to see more than one country trying to confuse people about what is the truth to be critical to be skeptical and to think for yourself. Don't believe everything that you read. Don't believe everything that you hear and remember sometimes at the messages that you are seeing. Whether they're from a politician that you might like or from foreign government that you can't see are meant to somehow try and shape the way you were thinking you have to be very onboard for that and I think now more than ever be a critical thinker and a critical consumer information.

What person place thing concept phenomenon or event? Are we going to be talking about today today? We'll be talking about the Diaw pass incident. Letters shin. Word. I can't do English words skipped saying ever. I wrote this whole essay, by the way, only using two out of the nine names because I could only hope to burn out. I wrote a round all the rest of Alice's pass incident. It's love city. You got it. You're pretty close Dianetics. All right, and Tom I win you tore your way through this article. And are you ready to drag us screaming through the details? I have removed all of my clothes for the occasion. Oh, okay. Well, what was your excuse last week then that was hot hot? Okay. And the week before that just my penis was hot. Okay. I just got stop asking questions. Just really only have yourself to blame their line of us more naked than I'm comfortable. Okay. Okay. Well, your penis looks pretty cold right now. So. Checks out. Anyway, before we go off the rails. Half-mast save just just in time. Nailed it. Tell us, Tom. What was the Diaz love pass incident? The pass intent is a still unexplained and extremely fatal incident that took place in the euro mounds in nineteen fifty nine I looked it up and the euro mountains are in Russia, and I know lots of weird shit happens in Russia, but this this is weird even by Russian STAN. Yeah. The euro mountains do some of the kind of place you'd go to have hookers peon. All right. So in January of nineteen fifty nine a group of extremely experienced hikers set off on what was supposed to be a skiing expedition across a portion of the euro mount the trip was classified as a grade three hike, which is the hardest possible classification for this kind of thing. And this is some kind of hellish combination of skiing, and mountaineering and hiking and winter camping. Although I suspect that all camping and Russia's winter camping. Well, I feel like for what it's worth Napoleon found a great for. And like these expedition members they were all grade two certified and head any of them actually survived this trip. They would have been great three certified they were done. Okay. So kind of a weird system if you grade up you still die, but with with a higher degree of difficult points, like a Russian degree of difficulty. So like. Again, like tough group of guys like and ladies, even by Russian standards, tough, folks. Yeah. And if you don't survive the tests, you get to be below great. You don't Leningrad joy. The ship tits shit hits on the horizon Belgrade. Menu. Now, look I don't want to downplay the danger here. But maybe when it becomes grade anything level dangerous we abandoned the word hiking. Something old people do when they've been kicked out of literally hobby. Maybe. Marching survival strolling. Thrown out there. Murder mosey. So the group originally consisted of ten people, but one guy about early because his body was just basically a piece of shit. You're a union suffered from rheumatism and congenital heart defect, and he was going to go on this impossible hike. So also a congenital brain defect apparently. Well, kind of because after only one day he had to quit due to severe knee and joint pain and on questionably this guy with this shitty, ticker and joints, mate of nape, home and glass, he will turn out bit a lucky motherfucker. This certifications can't be that guy with a heart monitor and a Walker. Also was great. Yeah. And our president is a stable genius. Who went to an Ivy league university. Anything you want? All right. So the remaining nine hikers, and we know this by the way from diaries and cameras that were later discovered. They cash them food and supplies in a wooded area for use on their return trip on January, the thirty first they headed into the nightmarish L scape of the euro mountains from the nightmarish hell scape of the rest of Russia. Yeah. It's all. Yeah. But we exhale a few more times or like throw a piece of coal in the air. And we're talking about the beautiful vineyards of Siberia in twenty forty twenty. Climbers being like, yeah. Guys, can't wait to get back to the warm glow of Saint Petersburg, wait. Right. So a quick note on the euro mountains these mountains are remote like fifteen hundred miles of Arctic tundra remote think impenetrable forest remote, like think, this is where the Russians planned to retreat to if things went badly after World War Two like think, elk and wolves and reindeer. Oh. And incidentally, the euro amounts has a four point seven rating on Google reviews. Yeah. With such helpful comments as good service and pretty good as mountains. Go. Jim. And I'm not making any of these up this, quote, my son killed himself off these mums less comment. Still got five. What? Now you. Try to the ones that up. Amounts of such a high rating in Russia because they wouldn't make a gay wedding. I just love the thought that there's somebody out there. Bad review? Too much. Uphill. No. No almond or soy mountains whatsoever. Who I was when I asked he stop stealing my phone five stars. Yeah. It's just your Russian yak farmer, and you don't listen to podcasts. What do you do all day? Pray for what is that show too? You too. Right. So they're hiking goal on their last day alive was the hike through a pass and make camp on the opposite side. But it's snowstorm blew up in the group got lost the ended up heading westward toward the top of Killa Ciocci hoop or whatever the fuck, I didn't check a map. But since they're all dead. Now, this seems like not what they wanted. The group embroiled in a massive snowstorm realized they were off track and they made their camp on the slope of the mountain in what is known as the pass the Atla past sounds like a hellish twit. You never get to use day to. Pretty much all our episodes should have been selling multi day groupon to their fucking thing. Action park the challenger. Heaven's gate. There's a bunch of other city. Of I, oh, this is now the point story, but I can tell you that we have lost all certainty on what exactly happens from here on already. I have questions like the group made camp on the side of the mountain in a snowstorm but less than a mile from their camp. There was also small wooded area that would have afforded the group some shelter from the elements now may have been at the group's leader yacht. Love didn't wanna lose the allegation. They had gained or it may have been at the group. We're just rushing and figured. Yeah. This sucks, but we can't tell the difference between our various miseries anymore. Let's stop. I see a cabin. We they've fire in the hot fresh coffee, quiet Yogi. You're yelling scares that shield from my bones. Now at this point. No one is really sure what happens except that. The group doesn't check in like they had planned, right? Made it from the snow to the other snow doing great next thing is fun. This is awesome. Listen to him. He's just jealous because these people didn't die alone. Would go to parallelly shit, man. So the group was supposed to have checked in no later than twelve. But when the twelve came and went, and knowing the group, nobody really snapped in action because it turns out that if you're rushing and your friends don't come back from hiking in the mountains when they're fucking supposed to it takes you more than a week to give us shit. Because in fact, it wasn't until the twentieth. That relatives the missing expedition made enough of a fuss to muster. A search party surge party originally consisting of volunteers was later expanded to include the military and police, and then they mobilized helicopters airplanes and their attempt to find the missing hikers will cause some tells me that traipsing around the euro mountains in February. Volunteer force wasn't filling in super. Yeah. We called in the police, but yeah, they they have pink eye the. You know what I don't blame him. I'm in Russia in the fucking sixties, and you go. Hey, my son and his friends wandered into the tundra on purpose. And then get back in time for Matlock. Will you send me aren't doing it for funsies in a knitting level free badge? All right, so student volunteer phone groups campsite, and the whole scene was a study in the bizarre that tent that was found was described as badly damaged now. There's a picture that you can find have to tell you badly damaged is something of an understatement. Lapsed tent? Yeah. I looked. I mean, this is utterly shredded. But Craigslist still hold the majority of the group's belongings including most of their shoes, which you might think you would want. If you're in a snowstorm. I wanted to get the mail on a fall day without at least a pair of dad clocks and the tent had been torn open from the inside. Oh, and all the people were gone. Okay. So there's a tent with people shaped cartoon holes in it. And the Jewish guy called out sick the day before sounds. Like an inside job. But before we find out, let's take a quick break for some opera. Pov- nothing. Checking combs comes online. Hello. This is the group for the level three hike. Right. I'm argie. I don't understand. What are you wearing? It's a lot woman than it. Looks. You never know. It's going to get chilly up there. First of all, no. Ceac all I think you meant that these these in my compressing knee wraps for my rheumatism. They get pretty bad in elevation. Get was it. Yuna both to embark on a level three hike through the euro mountains in light spring jacket. Sad is woman. It looks do have rheumatoid arthritis. But don't worry. I have my knee wraps. Okay. Though. Let's get going by guess excellent. At before we go quick thing. Did anyone bring any food? This. Oh, great. So I'll just have some of all of yours. No. And we're back when we left off Tom was telling us about I think yeti who Cape feared his way into the hikers tent. And then. Giant cake like stripper and scared. Everyone away. The rescuers are now turned investigators. They saw tracks in the snow eight or nine sets of tracks clearly leading away from the ten and just as clearly these were not tracks made by a party that you want to attend the temperature on the day of the incident was between thirteen and twenty below zero. And remember it's snowing hard enough that Russians decided to stop and the tracks somewhere barefoot some only SOX one with only one shoe on all eating to the edge of the nearby would so just standard campus. Larry, Larry, you're doing this in once you fuck that you're only getting a two point five certification. You're getting three. And if you make that these mounts have steep grades joke again, I'm naked too. Four. Searchers phone remains of a small fire less than a mile from the destroyed Cam. And there they also found the first two buddies those of criven Shinco and Doro Shinko. Well, right. I feel like I killed that. I think he didn't both shoeless and dressed only in what broken branches from nearby trees suggests that somebody had tried to climb the tree possibly to get a better vantage point to see the way back to the original campsite. He'd probably heath. Just one of the searchers climbing trees. Three more bodies were found nearby. All impositions that suggested they were trying to return to Cam wait like like frozen in the middle of charades game pointing at the camp like. Now the camp that they had very clearly vacated in such a hurry that they Kool aid man their way through their tent in search of the Blair witch. There's just one guy on the tree. And he's like guys guys. I could see my grave from. It's weird. When you read this on bare Wikipedia this whole event is just called Dave has the best day. Search for the remaining for hikers would take two months to complete on a may fourth buried under meters of snow. They were finally found and these four were better dressed than those of the first four that were found, and there's some speculation that this group had taken close for me. Some of that one of the guys was wearing the fo for garments from one of the dead women. One of the dead women had raptor foot in the pants from one of the dead men. And this only gets us as far as some speculation. The other option was that Ivan's pants shoe was just a bold fashion. Like, I've ans you know, Tonton onesie would have been the fence. By the way, if you've ever wondered what a chat room full of Noah's fighting over what a reasonable expectation is read the chat page. Maybe they were just wearing dead people. As a goof is the compromise this show. The first investigation concluded the whole group had died of hypothermia, but an examination of the second set of four bodies change that story though, it Inouye add clarity three of the hikers had major traumatic injuries with one man having sustained a massive head injury to having sustained major chess rectors, according to the medical examiner, the injuries were so massive and the forces to inflict them, so great that the injuries were actually consistent with a car crash in the amount of force that was needed except that there was also no soft tissue damage suggesting that they had been exposed to a massive pressure. Wave of some kind. Oh, and one of the ladies was missing her eyes in her lips and tongue and part of her skull. So pretty much hyperthermic as close. The guys at the injuries their chests, just so stoked. They have closed. A chest bump each other. Pro bro. A lot of imploded to explain what happened for the woman missing the soft bits of her face. It was noted that she was lying face down. And that a small stream ran under the snow and her condition may have been the result of what putrefaction rather than related to our actual death. And it could have been scavengers who just like to eat the soft stuff or she could have just done a few rounds with Mike Tyson after skip breakfast. Possibility or maybe Russian cows and had enough. It started mutilating back. I don't know. I think this part makes sense. Like, you know, you're eating this, ladies eyes lips and tongue. And you you need a plate because you're not fucking savage. So you smash. More than a plate was speculated. It was possible. Local indigenous population may have murdered the group for invading their territory, and that theory makes some sense as long as the local indigenous peoples can fly so they don't tracks in the snow and have some kind of highly advanced pressure gun that they only use on a few people. They wanna murder sometimes trespassing they constructed on the off chance of someone might wander through their largely uninhabited stretch of the euro. I mean that or maybe these guys is mid hike. Production of the crucible just got way out of. But you say all of that in jest, but what would be more Russian than a band of mountain. No with no belongings, but a bond villain super. Wait indigenous peoples killing a bunch of people with an air gun that sounds like the Gail of tears. Here's shit to the. The weird group of people. They're just like, oh this great finally using the air gun without some people. But we will need to throw off the investigation by fucking a corpse. Sorry what I'll eat that lady's face. Most. What did you? I said ladies face. The investigation indicated that the group all died because of a quote compelling natural force, and quote, which literally makes no sense at all and others. Most of me on that. Because in April of twenty eighteen one of the bodies was exumed and examined crazily. They the guy's DNA didn't match DNA of any living relatives they could find. And the guy's name is not on the list of those buried at the cemetery. Then he was exempt from two clearly he died, but we don't know how we're also maybe not sure who he was or they the wrong guy. Right. Like, that's Phil way. More consistent with the facts here or the party all got simultaneously challenged to a fight to the death by Vladimir Putin. And this is the cleanup. People's with DNA Switzer, go shit another possibility. Okay. Okay. I know we just landed on eating the lady's face. That's what I had said. And we landed on that last thing though, I also fuck this guy right in the DNA. Kinda give you some feedback. I need you to stop coming up with fucking related solutions to intruders. Dave, it's just. No. Knows. I'm discuss more. The wild speculation that there is just what the fuck might have actually happened. First of the series of the group were hit by an avalanche. And this might explain the traumatic injuries. And the idea here would be that the group found themselves buried under the snow cut themselves loose in a hurry and run out only in what they were wearing when they were struck by the avalanche. This theory has some problems though, the primary one being that. There was literally no evidence at all of an avalanche and conditions in that area are not conducive to avalanche. And there's literally never been an avalanche there ever. They could have been a highly localized disappearing avalanche. So not ruling that one out. So so like an avalanche cover. A second falls on top of it. It's a false crag operation. Nice. Another theory is that the wind did it specifically like the wind created a panic inducing infra sound when a blue over the mountains, and this theory holds at that infra sound drove the hikers temporarily mad causing them to flee their tendon panic and after running a distance the wind that cut through the mountains and created the infra sound have lessened or the infrastructure would be less. Infra now. This. And I simply died trying to make their way back and the traumatic injuries were due to falls, which evidently caused injuries only to their bones. And they fell at sixty five miles per hour. I loved it. Both of those last two theories are predicated on them being at the beginning or end of a lacklustre orgy win. This started. What are the guys just like Tina, can you wrap these pants over your foot again? Another theory is that of paradoxical undressing. And this is basically where when you like have hypothermia, your body starts to get all warm and tingling kind of like driving quickly over a tall hill and your move you're close, despite the fact that you're freezing to that. This theory also has a few problems that makes no fucking sense at all. Anything and the guy who posited must have been skimming the article rather haphazardly? Thank you again. People do yourself a favor. Read the talk page. Just imagine a van full of Noah's yelling at each other. As they drive over. All right and still other stupider theories have been put forth one suggests that no shit. High winds blew one of the members of the party away. The group perished in their attempt to locate and save Dorthy. Another suggests that the group was chased by local wildlife such as wolves or a yeti what but the complete absence of wolf tracks or bite marks and the total non existence of yeti makes those claims a little Cerdan another theory is that are meant argument in sued, but of all the ninety nine problems noted by researchers there was no evidence that a bench was one. I loved that. Somebody took the time though to chisel V bitches be crazy theory. I'm not mad. I just really wanna go for a walk right now in the snow negative twenty. I would like to do that. Running after Dorothy, your shoe. No shit, by the way, there's a show on discovery called the Russian yeti the killer lives where I guess. Harry rushing guy went around spritzing people with polonium two ten. I crazily a very plausible theory is that of parachute mines. Wow. Are those words that don't seem to belong all next to each other? This is the one that seems the most likely there is evidence that the military was testing parachute mines in around the area during the time of the signs were hurting themselves. I look this up parachute mines are basically naval see mine's repurpose with a timer and deployed by parachute. So they detonate before hitting the ground. The shock wave from this type of explosions known for causing devastating internal injuries with relatively little external trauma and the parachute. Mine hypothesis would also account for the siting of glowing orange orbs in the sky at the time of the incident that I did not mention earlier. Okay, because seem stupid, but just the iteration here the most plausible explanation for the mysterious death of a group of hikers in the middle of nowhere was that the Soviet military. Put naval mines on parachutes. And. Staring Jesus out of these poor fuckers until they read out of their tent at a panic only the die either from the minds of facts or the cold and they were at the beginning or end of a lacklustre orgy. No, it started out lackluster. But it ended with a big bang. And I'm assuming a very smooth transition from one of those fights about dibs on s into over a dead body sleeping bag. Trying to share an umbrella. You know? Yeah. I I asked to hold it. Heath. Tonton thing art, a few other items of note officials that investigated the incident who attempted to return to the past together. Additional information further investigate were shut down by their bosses and also officials state prosecutors were present at the more during the autopsies something which pretty much never happened. So I'm not saying for sure that it was Russians bombing the mountains. But I am saying that it sounds like these kids were killed by Russians perhaps by bums. And I love this story because you know, there was a day where someone ran into a military base. And he was like, hey, Dave. You know, we were testing those passu bombs in those abandoned mountains, this is fucking crazy. Tom if you had to summarize what you've learned in one sentence. What would it be in?

"The. Common sense commentary on politics, culture and current events. If it's on your mind, it's in the news. And now in the news with your host, Mike Dakkak. When do you say enough is enough? When you say to a president not everything is right? The not everything you do is okay. Just because you're the one doing it. The president famously said that he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and his supporters wouldn't leave him. He's right. This support has are pretty loyal. But what point are your words and actions crossing the line from being tell it like it is to being. Yeah, I know it's wrong but I dare you to do something about it. My word is the law now. The Russians interfered in our elections. They did it. They meant it and they don't regret a thing. Why would they at this point? Nine the stand point of view of supporters of the president's. They feel the country is slipping toward a place where they will no longer recognize it and a urine for strong man rule. Authoritarian rule, and they see. Donald Trump, as a viable candidates had be that strong man that politically incorrect, strongman, but we'd have to pay some attention. Who strongman gets in bed with do we not not because of a hatred of bedfellows? I suppose bedfellows are okay, if they have your interests at heart, even if they haven't had them traditionally, thanks can change. It may work as long as your interests. And their interests are aligned. But what if they're not, what if one side is only pretending to be an ally? What if one side is playing along Lulling you into a false sense of security, and as soon as they see an opportunity they're going to strike? What if we're letting strangers into our house who stands up at that point. And says wait a second, not so fast. You may have some of us fooled but you don't have all of us fooled. No Washington DC has been consumed by the role, the president played in Russian interference and then the obstruction of the investigation, whether there was any cooperation between the two sides. And then whether there was a conscious effort to obstruct the investigation into it, and rightfully so those are important questions that need to be thoroughly investigated. What's getting lost in the asking and answering of those questions? However, is the main fact that a foreign power, an adversary one at best and a hostile one at worst, try to interfere our election. I mean if a country interferes in our election and favors one candidate over another, and that country is, as we've just said, adversary will best and hostile at worst, and what does that say about where are true interests lie? If the one candidate truly is the best for America, America's future. Does anyone really believe that Russia would spend millions of dollars and thousands of man hours trying to get that person elected? I guess if I had one question to ask this president about this whole Russia affair, it would be, sir. A foreign government tried to interfere in our election. What are you going to do about it? I don't wanna know about whether negotiations over building a tower in that country ended a month before the election or a month after although it's an important question. I don't mean to downplay it. I don't want to know whether your lawyer paid people off to keep scandals from becoming public know what I want to know is what the president is doing or going to do the seat to it that the foreign power doesn't do it again. Well, apparently, we've got the answer to that question this week. President Trump said during an interview this week that he would take a look at information from a foreign government on a political opponent. If it happened again in the next election. Your campaign this time around, if foreigners if Russia if China if someone else offers you information on an opponent should they accept it. Or should they call the FBI? The president was asked in an interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos. I think maybe you do both. I think you might wanna listen there isn't anything wrong with listening. The president said, if someone called from country Norway, and said we have information on your opponent. I think I'd wanna hear you want that kind of interference on our elections. He's asked as a follow up. It's not interference. They have information I think I take it. He said, if I thought there was something wrong. I'd go maybe to the FBI if I thought there was something wrong. But when somebody comes up with upo research, let's call the FBI. The FBI doesn't have enough agents to take care of him. When you go and talk, honestly, to congressmen, they all do it. They always have. And that's the way. It is. It's called upo research. The president set. Yes, there is something called opposition research, and yes, all politicians do it. This is different though. This is not that this is an opposition research. This is espionage. And now we're aiding and abetting it at the very least it's making it known that you have receptive ears to this kind of thing when we have no choice but to move forward with impeachment. Now only and I'm not exactly sure that the president needs to be removed from office tomorrow. But perhaps an inquiry needs to be opened up at the very least a formal censure needs to be issued a censure is when the congress either body of which the house, or the Senate issues. A strong statement of disapproval to one of its members or the president of the United States. It's the state formerly that the person's actions. Run counter to the group's acceptable standards of behavior. It's a gesture, that's not quite as strong as impeachment as in terms of the actual removal from office, but his strong. Than just disagreeing with the president or a simple rebuke, if you will. If you've been listening to the show for the last couple of years, you know, where I've stood on impeachment on removing President Trump from office. I have not favored it. I view it as a deeply divisive exercise. Ironically, the one person on the democratic side, and congress or one of the few people, I should say, who agree with that sentiment is speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi of one of the more liberal members of congress. Nancy Pelosi said the other day in an interview of our own this was before the comments by the president were made. That the majority of the democratic caucus in the house of representatives was not at the point where it was calling for impeachment. She has said in the past that she will not move on and peach mint, unless an unsealed, the majority of the democratic caucus is at that point, there's, what two hundred thirty five democratic members in the house only sixty so far have come out and called for the president's impeachment and even most of them are only calling for the beginning of an impeachment inquiry, the beginning of impeachment proceedings, so not necessarily for the removal of the president just yet, they're just willing to travel down that road and see where the process takes them. Opening a formal impeachment proceeding unlocks certain legal processes and methods of investigation that otherwise would not be available to investigators. It basically gives the body more power over evidence requests document requests that kind of thing as well as compelling witnesses to testify appear. Now to be clear about this. There's a number of Democrats and not an insignificant. Number mind. You who believe Donald Trump should have been impeached. The very first day he got into office and matter what he did. They were going to try and steer things and that direction. I mean, that's kind of fact of our political reality these days, but the president keeps playing into those hands are perhaps, we should say, he keeps giving them reasons travel down that road and by doing so he makes it harder for people who are trying to resist extreme partisanship to defend them. But Pelosi's position so far is that impeachment is way too divisive. A process to be undertaken at this time, especially when it's still a minority in the house of representatives who feel that way. It may be different. Now, these latest comments by the president may have kind of forced her hand. It may be now that we don't have a choice. The thing is Donald Trump. No exactly what he was doing with those comments. They weren't a mistake wasn't a slip of tongue and it wasn't a Gotcha question. This was a question that could have been seen coming mile away. Right. Interference was a major storyline in the last election. What happens if you're confronted with a similar situation this time around? How are you going to handle it? And he said, what he said it was a totally expected question. If not in this interview than any number of subsequent interviews that were sure to come between now and November twenty twenty. The president here was sending a message to Russia. That's what's troubling about this do it again interfere. All you want. I'm not going to report it. I'm not going to reprimand you for it. No. One is gonna hold it against you. And there isn't a darn thing anyone can do about it. I mean, look, it's possible that Russia doesn't really care what the domestic policy of the candidate they back is, maybe they're not picking the candidate who would be the most detrimental to America's future. Maybe they only care about the foreign policy doctrine of the candidate. But even if that's the case, we should be worried, even if we are weakened only on foreign policy only on the foreign front. Well, that's still being weakened. And even if we're weakened only on foreign policy, eventually, that does turn into weakening domestically, even if only slightly. And by the way, there's a lot of people out there who say the president's words don't really matter that there isn't a country out there per se, that's. Waiting for the president to say something for them to do bad things or act in a bad manner, or attempt to interfere in our politics that if they are going to interfere they were always going to, they were going to do it anyway. You know, the words, well, that's not exactly the case, either at least when it comes to a question of degree back in July twenty sixteen. Donald Trump made some now famous comments regarding Russia and Hillary Clinton's emails, his opponent last time around. You probably remember them. He probably heard the number of times Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the thirty thousand emails that are missing. I think you will be rewarded mightily by our press. Right. Remember that? Well, you may have missed if you didn't read the mullahs, report, part, one of the mullahs report is that within five hours of Donald Trump making those statements Russia, targeted for the very first time I ju- Hillary Clinton's personal office, her personal emails. The GRU Russia's military intelligence service. Created and sent malicious links targeting fifteen Email accounts, this, according to Robert Muller's, investigators at Hillary Clinton's private domain, including to an Email account belonging to a Clinton aide. Investigators say they never found evidence of the Russian government or Russian hackers targeting Clinton's personal office before that it's also not clear how the GR you got the Email addresses that were targeted because they were not in the public domain, although if your business businesses international espionage, and is probably not too hard to track something like that down. So that's, who's taking the president's words seriously, the foreign powers themselves. And then, of course, you have the additional problem of, well, if we see Russia getting involved again, well then maybe other powers are going to get involved as well. Hillary Clinton speaking of spoke about this several weeks ago, herself, she said, imagine that you had one of the democrat. Nominees for twenty twenty she was talking about this in an interview. And she said, imagine you had one of the democratic nominees for twenty twenty that said, you know, the only other adversary of ours, who is anywhere near as good as the Russians is China. So why should Russia have all the fun and since Russia's clearly backing Republicans? Why don't we ask China back US China? If you're listening, why don't you get Trump's tax returns? I'm sure our media would richly reward you. So hey, let's just have great power contest. And let's get the Chinese in on the side of somebody else, just saying that shows how absurd the situation we find ourselves in is. And she's right. That's probably exactly what's going to happen. Except China as well as any number of other nations may not even wait to be asked to interfere. They might take their own initiative and just do it. And, like Russia in may be on behalf of a particular. Candidate. But the ultimate goal may just be more dischord in disunity. I mean, if you're part of the disinformation operations of a foreign country and you're watching what's going on in this country from the outside, and you have the wherewithal to pour more gasoline on the fire. Why in the world would you not? We would to if we were they in weaknesses provocative to bring back an old questionable saying. And right now, we're shown a lot of weakness not militarily. But in terms of divisiveness, if you're foreign country, why would you not try to see the fishers that exist in our society grow more extreme? The problem is with the visit is that cyclical every norm. That's broken down causes more anger, and therefore more polarization, which causes more division. The more division there is the more norms of broken down, so on and so forth and not only is it cyclical, but it also accelerates with every cycle, it's not too hard to see that things can get quickly out of hand. It can get quickly to the point where we. Don't know what or who to believe anymore. That's the real danger goes back to that idea that we need a consumer reports for information like Clinton. Watts former FBI special agent with the joint, terrorism task force once said some kind of commission that serves as an arbiter of what's real, and what's fake. We need a consumer reports for new sites, maybe even political ads, because there is real potential here to get bombarded with all kinds of information that we're not going to know where it came from or where its origins were the biggest threat to us right now is going to be to discern. What are legitimate sources of information? What are not? And by the way, it doesn't have to be nonpartisan to be legitimate. It can be partisan. It just can't be created by a foreign actor pretending to be Americans for the sole purpose of doing nothing more than trying to weaken the country from the inside out it can be an attack ad. It can be dirty attack as long as the source of that ad is verifiable and estate of. Run. I mean, maybe you can even let Russia or on other country by political ads, as long as they tell us, it's actually them buying those ads. The transparency here is the key. It's the sunlight that we need as long as we know it's them the potency of the action is taken away and. And if we think this is not having practical consequences for the everyday operation of our government. We may be wrong about that as well. It was recently revealed that US cyber command the outfit responsible for conducting both offensive and defensive cyber operations. They've been conducting more aggressive operations against Russia themselves, but it's being done without President, Trump's knowledge, the president authorized cyber command last summer to conduct more offensive online operations without having to get clearance from the White House first, but the authorization for these specific actions against Russia seemed to have come from a separate law that was passed by congress last summer. It was actually a military authorization Bill a budget Bill. In other words with some provisions in there for some military policy. This is for calendar year twenty nineteen year we're in now, well, a part of that authorization approved routine conduct of. Destined military activity to quote deter safeguard or defend against attacks are malicious cyber activities against the United States. Apart of those activities, according to government officials has included placing mal wear, which are computer programs that can be triggered to debilitate critical infrastructure inside of Russian according to the report, which was made public over the last couple of weeks. Those programs have been placed deep inside power grids in Russia. We've gone far more aggressive over the past year, and doing things like that. And talking about cyber operations general poll Nakasone, the commander of US cyber command said, other countries, don't fear us when it comes to cyber, it seems we're trying to change that. So, apparently cyber command has penetrated some of the defenses of these Russian power grids, and the code has been planted there. We have no idea how effective the operations will be unless and until the programs are actually triggered in some kind of exchange of hostilities, this was information that was up until now unknown, right? For years. US officials have been tracking Russian intrusion and nuisance attacks on our infrastructure in two thousand eight Russia's successfully breached, the Pentagon's classified, communications networks attacks, only increased after Barack Obama became president by the end of Obama's first term, government officials uncovered a Russian hacking group known to cyber investigators as energetic beer, or Dragonfly. It was largely believed that it was only as her Valence unit, and that it was not looking to conduct offensive operations, that assumption disappeared in two thousand fourteen when energetic bear was able to hack into software updates. That reached into hundreds of US systems that controlled power switches, experts believe that was the first step in a long term plan of attack on US systems in December twenty fifteen a Russian cyberattack shut off power to hundreds of thousands of people in western Ukraine. A team of American officials who investigated that attack concluded that the same Russian units had deeply penetrated the US energy grid. And other words Russia was building the capability to conduct the same kind of tack on the US. Also in two thousand fifteen other Russian units began targeting political entities like the DNC that was the election interference by twenty sixteen. Those same units had also reached systems that controlled power switches at power plants after President Trump came into office, the attacks kept escalating in twenty eighteen it was discovered that Russian operatives had hacked into the communication systems of a corporation that runs a nuclear power plant near Burlington Kansas, as well as a nuclear station near Brownsville Nebraska, no evidence exists that they were successful in commandeering, though systems. But by that time it had become clear that the US needed to step up its deter. Capabilities against Russia as well as other actors. Since two thousand twelve US officials have been placing reconnaissance software into the control systems of the Russian electric grid. But the steps they're taking now seem to be going further than any steps that had been taking previously now, obviously, these are not the only operations or even the most potent ones that are being implemented, otherwise, you and I probably would not know about them, but it is rather telling as to who else. Did it know about them, at least not until now and that was President Trump officials had been reluctant to discuss the details of these operations the ones against Russia with the president because they were afraid that he would either, bring an end to them, or that he would give them away that he would divulge them. They point to the fact that the president of the facts of a sensitive operation in Syria to the Russian Foreign Minister, twenty seventeen. I mean, this is really telling we like to think of the president as unafraid to speak the truth as having. A tell it like it is quality. But when it comes to matters of life, and death, the highest officials in our defense structure, believe it's best for the security of the nation for him to be kept out of the loop that tells you, everything you need to know about what the most serious, people, the people with the gravest responsibilities in our country, as far as keeping a safe really think of this president. Now, of course, these are all signals being sent right. Depresses just being used as a conduit here. US national security officials are telling Russian, national security officials. Hey, even of Trump doesn't get what you're doing. We do. And we'll do whatever we have to keep the country safe. And then, of course, there's the signal that the president himself, ascending after the story broke of the more aggressive steps being taken against Russia and the president being kept in the dark about them for fear. He would compromise them. The president blasted the press. Do you believe the failing New York Times just a story stating, the US is substantially increasing cyber attacks on Russian? This is a virtual act of treason by a once great paper. So desperate for a story any story even if bad for our country he wrote on Twitter. But this isn't a fake story. It's not fake news. It seems so far to be pretty accurate. Let me remind you that just about every story that ran on Russia and. The Russian investigation as far as interference on our election goes turned out to be true, and that's not according to Muller or his investigators. It's according to Trump's own people who admitted they were true to Mahler's own investigators. I mean it's possible that it is. But this one doesn't look like it's any different. What's startling about Trump's reaction? Is that it amounts basically to an apology to Russia? He's basically saying sorry, it's not true. And if I get to the bottom of it, and find that it's true. I'm going to do whatever I have to, to stop it again for Trump. This whole Russia thing may be all about money and him not wanting to Illini eight. Good clients, as it were. But for Russia, this is not about money. It's not even about Trump. I mean, why would cyber attacks only increase after Trump won the presidency if this was only about making sure Hillary Clinton lost Donald Trump won? Why would they target how our nuclear plants on American soil? If this is just about foreign policy, and the way we conduct foreign policy abroad. Putin Vladimir Poon is not going to bat an eyelash at crippling the US either militarily economically or by targeting infrastructure. Even if Donald Trump is President, Donald Trump doesn't seem to get that, or if he does he has a funny way of showing him, he's willing to protect Russia from every institution that comes after it military intelligence community criminal investigators that goes after them for their actions at what point does the playing dumb become damaging. And at what point to the rest of us have to step in and stop it. Now at some point the rest of us have to hold up a sign that says to anyone looking to interfere in our society in our elections. Hey, whatever is going on with his game of footsie between Putin and Trump can be disregarded, because the rest of us are the ones minding the store. Well, that's chauffeur today.

Thank you so much we love you guys so much lots and lots but when he just to suck doc you dicks we will kick it right in so let's get on throughout first trailer. It's festival is Milan Matt. What did you think of Milan Disney's live action remake? I gotta be honest like I don't have any strong personal hustle connection to Milan. I'm not even sure of seeing the full film like a definitely a bunch of songs and confidently with this. I don't really have one installed. You're attached to this and Madonna minds so maybe I'm seeing through different perspectives of other people but this is not an exciting trial with me. I gotta be honest. I feel it doesn't feel like a Disney film. It feels very grounded and very very realistic which which isn't a bad thing but like I'm just not feeling that Disney magic and I think that might be why I'm not sure I might went on this family. Where are you coming from? I think you are a little this a day like this. Looks also like this trial looks awesome. I think the fact that it doesn't look like a Disney movie wax. It's five to be honest like separates itself from a ladder and separates itself from Lion King on those things the other visual style but <hes> I think this hardly this as a looks fucking also and it looks like did they go for something that's kind of sort of authentic and grounded and like you said grounded and it's and it's ultimately end up working. It's it's five. Oh sorry I think like it's supposed to be like a period like a war drama and that's the title that I get from this trial so I'm one hundred percent on board with this at this point because that's as it was fucking awesome. I think I think you're right. I think it does feel like a period drama of never really had a strong connection to that. I'm just having trouble connecting with this trial Dr would it's mystic medics because like really I am currently from Rome Basin the original story. It's like she trust look like a man so she could join the army or something is our. I'm not saying that in this trailer there is that right. Probably you know because I've never seen in Idaho Fair enough the other than it is worth mentioning something that I found out which I found very interesting is I wouldn't call a backlash but some fans have been disappointed because they'd taken out a character cold this could M- issue something something and I believe he was voiced by alza comedian <unk> came out and I said there's GonNa be no songs in this movie and people you know remember as a musical but like you said the direction again they want to treat it like a war drama or something and that means something completely different and I know I was just GonNa say man like honestly people give like honestly. I don't give a shit about like the music. That's not really something that I care about. I personally like on that. People are getting all up in arms about it because that's what the original had but this is an adaptation. We've talked about what the what that little little. Wed Maine's like the word adaptation means base to change this is a live action version of a contoured and something's Weiqing concert format all that something start like in <hes> musical musical numbers mix with a period war-drama doesn't really really blend. It doesn't really like fit into what what time they going. Falls honestly is like a fucking glad like they they chip. I think what I personally. I've never seen a phil appeared drama. Especially sent China mixed into a musical before our couldn't Akron speak data and I couldn't tell you because I haven't seen it but what I try to but that doesn't mean what it just means. We have the Senate <hes> but it worked in Qatar but who knows but I'm obviously going a lot of direction that will always piss off paypal because it sounds like that completely changed the genre of what it is but but should be mentioned too that people should be aware of Milan is is a unbelieva Chinese Mithra legend and that's where originally drafted from and some of your eyelids which I found interesting on how do apparently in China the original Milan movie was not received well. They thought that character cut out which was like a Talking Little Dragon Thought Colin like offensive but they'll send like his western comedy was at the expense of a lot of China's traditions and some of the plot points. This is like the doors con disrespectful parents of saying where I can prince or King Bell's to her and Mike that slack that doesn't happen that may be knowing Disney in you know what these these like these days like they really WanNa be authentic and end when they're adopting another colt a non western culture they really want to do that and props to them like the it's a completely Asian costs like they're being very looks like authentic to what mind standing is. The stuff is <hes> but yeah. I think people just got the judge. This film based on merit is kind of how you should judge films really but yet these filmmakers must have some bowls through to deviate so much from the source artfully pays off indeed. Let's move on then to next now. We've got a little film called bad trip. Now bad trip Sauza Gaza Eric Andrea who's of Internet main families those although resigning his design share before it's by the guys who've done <hes> the jackass movies and more specifically a bad GRANDPA and I did another one recently <hes> action point which I wanted to say that I missed that one so what's your experience with like the Jackass films and the show and do do you do do a personal taste for that sort of stuff ave look. I've seen him saying jackass. One two and three three actually came out while I was working at the cinema so that was one and I've seen I've seen bad GRANDPA that also came out while I was at the today's movies a dog shit by the way they're not even moving. It's like they're just talking. They're just excuses with Johnny. Knoxville just to do some shit but like you know what the Jackass one two and three movies that I sometimes play in the background if I'm doing something like you know what I mean it like the movies Churn Inter net flex or something and I just like Zion out like I don I and honestly like sometimes it's just like honest background but was terrible. I hated that fucking movie. Like that was that was just it was it felt like describing the bottom of the barrel like you know what I mean. It felt like it it felt like because it's nothing say we haven't seen in jackass before so it was just like yeah and honestly I am naught Cain all interested in this movie. I think that's why I it's just it's fleeting locked in the entertainment is floating today. It's it doesn't really stick with me. What do you think of Sir Sir? What's interesting with this sort of film in an action point and <hes> bad GRANDPA's? What they've done is instead of doing a bunch of pranks back to back like you would essentially youtube channel? I've tried to like embedded the story line. I think it looks like during this as well but you know what else did that. I was really successful Borat by I guess you could sorta say Brunei but that kind that was a bit more out of base. Do you think you feel the same AH Barak. I think that's a little different. I think I think they kind of human at Baratz. Full is enough Senate on the podcast a Lotta time slapstick humor is the lowest Cunningham it takes to do bodily harm and stuff like it's not that <hes> funny <hes> like the the big filter to Jack. Is that the that the damage Israel like that's the big appeal whereas like Borat is more like what can you say. What can you do take these people off and what is GonNa come from that reaction? I think I think them like putting a story around Brad GRANDPA action point all what's this walking. Maybe we're talking about again. Bad trick that Jason's guys have I forgot. I think I think the things that take away from those those three movies is the story like why why concern yourself with the story. Just give the people what they want like. You know what I mean yeah so for me like growing up as a bit of a punk Skate Accu- obviously like you Kinda have to like jackass you not allowed to check us and jackass was it's earn original thing it's not it's earn like almost genre of T._v.. Shows for a while but that that crisis common gone the thing for me. What makes something bad grandpa different or even action point or even this bar? It's like an interesting being runner interesting but he's a funny unique character <hes> not near bad grandpa of like a rude kid and a GRANDPA who's also rooted like that's not super unique. <hes> an action point is literally just junk actual binge on Knoxville and this it just feels like Eric Andre <unk> himself. I think so you're not going to win with the story. So you really go to win. People evolve if you practice because these are basically like they're like game shows prank shows that used to be a law like comedy central shock. It's essentially that with a budget but like joining vauxhall playing self eric himself like it's only gonNA probably appeal to people who are fans of them. I think there is an audience for this stuff but you and me man. We're probably just growing out of it. I probably would watch this. I feel like I'm white too old for this shit honestly like I can. I I'll go in and I might watch it. I'M NOT GONNA judge it by the Judge Tarantino deny film. You can't really review film like this because it's just it's it's vaguely movie. It's got more in common with like like it's not trying to tell a story a complete story insist China do a bunch random pranks that are filmed and you've seen reactions. It's this very little suffering something like this than from like a bad viral youtube and we both saying those shitty pranksters on instagram Graham and stuff. You're just thinking fucking knocking someone's head office funniest dumb like that yeah so I actually kinda interested to see something like this because it's kind of like seems like they're trying to move to a new generation of this stuff and save if that changes anything but it's not something I'm rushing to cinema say I'm not super excited for it. Anything else stand to this trial. Yeah nothing like tiffany. Tiffany Haddish is in it like why the random the only other thing that I was taking away from it was the fact that it's not directed by Jeff Tremaine who did the jackass movies and GRANDPA's. Oh it's not really sort of that. Same sort of thing events like how how long can a aren't hundreds. He's caught a popular now. He's getting up as becoming more of his name right but he's he's faces recognizable. He is a main like how are you going to do these sort of prank. Things things like people are going to start. Introducing you bet is a whole bunch of deleted scenes but people recognized who he is cancelled a prank but yeah let's move on. Let's move on to Solo. Some of the a lot of people are really excited about. It looks really pretty alright. Let's talk knives out. That's probably one of the better trials we got this week so so Grantham tell me like we've got to stop started cost. It's a mystery who's done it. What do you think of this one man mystery whodunit who's done it? Sorry say yeah so yeah this is I think I think more than anything more than the cost. This is the first postal was the last movie directed by Ron Johnson so that's interesting. It is interesting to say it is interesting seeing the light from the director of Stahl loss jet. Oh that's that's kind of way to say right. It is to say because you're you wouldn't say Jabar's being like Oh. Maybe you would like from the Darkest Star Wars and star Trek like that but yeah man like this. This looks right up. My fucking alley like this looks great. It looks fucking a hilarious at the same time. It looks like a mystery at the same time it looks like on the Orient Express like the you know the the Agatha Christie novel mixed with Bad Times of the royal will like which came at last year it like it's got back on sort of like humor install to to allow the flashing <hes> not to mention the cost of like you mentioned the cost early. Let me let me let's run through it a little bit so you got out of jail. Moss who I think is one of the most beautiful women on the planet like she plays. She plays joy in bladerunner twenty forty nine. She's is going to be in the next James. Bond Movie Chris Evans who needs no introduction he got Daniel Craig. Its introduction tiny collette from the amazing hereditary. She has amazing that Michael Shannon Mazo Introduction Catherine Langford who was in thirteen reasons why Jamie Lee Curtis introduction locate stanfield from get out Christopher plummer like these for fucking Bunch Shitter Don Johnson Miami Vice Frank us the fucking voiced Yoda look like you know what I mean it it it keeps going but it is it is a fantastic cost and the the the premise of it is really unique and I'm really I'll probably be the Diwan for this to be honest it. Just it just looks like if I'm tired of the movies yeah our on our site so the WHO's done genre it feels it's weird at feels outdated but it also feels the stall gic in crude swirl always going to get that I he's going to do this. This cost is the big draw for me. It is insane like first of all how often you see Daniel Craig not play James Bond we Jamie Lee Curtis News brought off the heels of Halloween and then what stillness show for me is is Chris Evans. Now I do get excited every time I see like do you excited seeing a person who's been locked in a Malva contract for so long. Get Out and do something different. I guess that's why Daniel Craig kind of excitement in this as well but he's got some great lines in this and he's playing like a character. I've never seen him so the day before and I'm loving it like he's sorry charismatic every microseconds on that screen. It's really the engagement sir like I'm in. This looks like fun. It does look like fun. I'm just GONNA like Daniel. Craig does does some stuff outside of the bond genre. I recommend checking out lugging lucky <music> on instead. It's directed by the guy the guy who did Ocean's eleven. He's great you not maybe but I mean don't forget that he was in the go with the Dragon Tattoo which is fucking right as well adventure so he's he definitely does work outside outside of the bond. Franchise Fair are three fail like we're GONNA lock. You really want to stay in the cinema missed out on but yeah ziming Stanford for this trailer honestly weirdly enough like I ah is amazing. It is much to say other than like under so gobsmacked by the like costing for this like how the fuck did. They get these people to get that's cool. It looks expensive as Faulk this is this is only a cost. A star Star Wars director could probably put together yeah yeah. It must have a great script to get always people in like that's that's the only other thing I can think of because like you do see big cost like this sometimes but like eight times out of ten maybe nine times out of ten it's animated film and that's how they get the more work around schedules on money so series window film. We don't talk about maybe forty three yeah <unk>. Let's move onto our second loss trial tonight. Let's like the kingsman for lost quickly. Talk about three from Hell so this is the sequel in a trilogy of House asked by Rob Zombie Boeing House thousand corpses and the Devil's rejects. This'll be closing off that trilogy. I believe featuring I guess a very holly quin character and I- crazy clown and the old redneck. Have you seen those Mideast thoughts before I have seen them I also I think he's one of the West directors today. I'm just going to throw that out every time. This guy gets yeah every time he's rise Outta. Maybe dislike not not interested like these three characters that you're saying the one the Harley Quinn the clan and the elder redneck like they were all in those in the previous movies the holly quaint Ness. 's character like she i. She's not necessarily playing Ollie Quinn but that's what she looks. I get why you called her that that's Sheri Moon Zombie. Sorry I think married if I'm not mistaken together yeah yeah yeah and the other one is the Klan is captain spaulding as played by had hey he's in kill bill volume two and shit like he's been in some stuff but cloud Niger talk. Just I've always liked about robe zombies trilogies. I love the throwback to the grind house stays. It's very a love how intentionally grade and. You feel like it fits right in with the greenhouse films of like the one that like Rodriguez and Tarantino to get like almost Butler insane but the same wheelhouse topic film. We've got a lot of that being said how this trial is not right. This is actually I'm going to say it's kind of bad and I liked those other films. It looks insanely low budget which makes no sense of Rob Zombie money and we see very little in fact. I'll be honest with you. The first time I saw the first trailer I thought it was a fan made fake run and I looked around three different due to channels realize oh no this is the is the real deal yeah. It's not of high quality high. No it's not legit honestly just looks right up garbage which is one hundred percent what I expected when I clicked on when I clicked play out of his movies the early movies of his that actually look look like a quality produce movie the to Halloween movies that he did and then not good auto like an automated just still dumps devise so you're saying I guess you can't answer that to stand personally. I like those two Halloween films films like the May like they were Sir brutal arm at one like this scene where guys being strangled to death and it just holds on forever and it's a spelt sore brutal actually like this Halloween films but what he is very solid substance and I think he knows that is berry like I want to be on a it's an acquired taste. I think it's early to really appeal to specific type of fans and mercilessly like cult horrifying so don't even mainstream our offense I will say this lost her from back in the day immersing himself in a soldier reasons but this is not a good trial. I'll sign doesn't inspire hurry Paul say why are you probably is saying this. You said pretty excited for the kingsman trial there. What do you reckon? Oh yeah this this. I was not expecting this this morning like this this trial job literally this morning so yeah Anita this is this was in production. They literally just announced the title of it as well. Let couple maybe about a month ago. The kings man I the first one is an incredible fucking lockin. Maybe like that that first one is just so fucking fun and such a great injection into the the the spy genre which has been kind of dwindling into the seriousness of it all and that one kind of like told us to kind of like you know just just sit back relax remember remember the seventy s spy movies rural yeah all about fun pretty much rather than putting your Bryant into and shit the second one isn't really that great. I thought the writings that was really a bit of a letdown visually it was still great but it was still just like miss. This one like Holy Shit that trial did like that is also like some of the shots in that trial would just just absolutely incredible the breaking through the wall like like there's a lot of like Matthews vote in there and having Rifai as the late CACTI is probably just like a mass destruct like I love rice fines and it just looks like a serious I it looks like a serious. Take on it. which you know like I said is is what they were trying to get away from? But I lacked elected. They've kind of like come back to a little bit a little bit more than the last one because the second one just took things way way too much to to have a look. I'm definitely fucking Starkville this the Disney movie it. It looks like an absolute. It looks like fun and it looks like a great action film which really gainful are have to partially disagree with you. Man Like overall didn't love this is trial and mostly because it was just way too serious for me <hes> photos claiming maybe I don't usually connect well with like middle aged middle age dockage soden within shield taught films but like man like just every Gal who it's partially that right and that's actually that's one of the questions is going to rise but I'll just do it now. One thing I'm a bit confused about is we get some stuff which seems very like you know hostile swords and shields but then we also cut to lack London looks like in more modern times is are we jumping around on a time line here or did you know what's going on with that because I think well the like like the the other two kings movies like gave us clues as to win kingsman was formed right like that whole organization and that you know the names are all sort of mill in names like they're all king off Knight. Is You know they got Galahad. You've got you've actually got Autho and things like that so it does it does go back to those times as many times but this movie I believe is set in World War. One like that is like that opening being shot his advanced land and you get a shot of respiration like automation side. It's like it doesn't seem like there's a little bit of like a time thing going on. He also the like they might be delving into like different kinds of different kinds of I'm like I'm more than into that like I. I one hundred percent. I'd like it just looks like it looks like they played around with it. Which I'm happy late is that the loss was just just really can say why they want to go in a new direction erection black it makes sense like experiment with and stuff and yeah maybe the maybe the doing a whole loss thing what I keep flashing back to another time Weinstein or some sort of like something like that like maybe they go in between two? Maybe it was shipped. Shootout flashbacks in smoothie who knows like <hes> is it is curious I will say of course but yeah again like every day I liked about the first to a lot of that is not present here. I liked originally house like a it. He's like this funky almost comedic take it was like Konda satirical but it was kind of also series sometime not getting that from here. I'm not getting a big fun vibe by though I'm just insert overly dramatic. Maybe that's just the way trailers cutler. Maybe the films like that one thing I do like there and I'm glad see hints of it here. Now is <hes> what both kingsman films have in common is just dope as Fuck Action Cinematography like they'll pull oh camera angles and really we'd positions and they almost treat it like a video game and this is one sean particular lack in this trailer where it's like the point of view of lack. It's almost like sticky type A Gopro to the side of a sword and the swords clash and that gets close to some guys like cool. If you give me a movie like we get a shit ton of that stuff okay I'll forgive everything else because even kingsman to right they they conduct copy and paste at all the good stuff one but like I can forgive all the dumb stuff stuff like as much so he is cool like shots every now and then and as enough a number two to make me go out a good time I like as much as the first I want but I still enjoyed at this film at least does that to like more than just like a couple of times like a big shot. I'll be enough to keep me into time but I really hope it's not serious as trailer. Is I really think I'm hoping that like maybe just like with this one Tesa aw tryline then like jerks charismatic people. I think I'm ready for a Sejer series kings movie. I think I'm ready for one because the second one kinda like told us like that too much of that is a bit like it's not a good thing so I think I think I'm ready to especially if it is a prequel which absolutely is I think I think it is a good thing for it to take a little more seriously because this is where it kind of like came from from dealing with a teenager as a main character. Not I get that a personally. I'm not ready to that. I think <hes> but you know what for franchise I'd rather stay the same but as much as I say that if it's a good movie it's a good movie so I'll if it's awesome. It's awesome. I'll gladly fuck up and take it all back so so I'll never dig my heels in too hard about anything like that. I said I will also say like and I'm not going to try and complain too much but do we really wanNA prequel like it's the third film in the franchise. GonNa Prequel already at makes me think how the fuck and they're gonNA push the franchise Ford for the future but that's not my problem worry about the studio head. I'm going to trust that a good script and that's why they went with that A.. K. and I think that wraps up for trailers today but that doesn't end that we have to reviews WHO's <hes> we're gonNA talk about stranger things season three <hes> because we are just like old great netflix shows able to binge them out in the weekend that comes out and feels like you're seeing a movie about the new allegations film <music> horror film kroll horror thriller. I guess you'd call it. <hes> this'll be filled with spoilers so if you don't like spoilers make sure you watch out for that which we start with Krolo stranger things that's tragic things. You'd even want stranger things three the kids anymore. And what did you think we're just GONNA sit my basement all day for the rest of our lives before to me. You say I want you to feel I like this can still be your home. Boy Stranger things season three over almost a fortnight ago so I'm a little bit over the place but let's get through it as much as we can. Sorry tell me what thoughts on season three I I watched. I finished a bit more recently than your I watched I think four emphasize on the dropped to episodes a couple of days and then eh one episode until the finale literally like a wake ladder like I just didn't have time to get to man this. This decision was absolutely incredible. I I took to this this season so much better than I talked to season two it was. Is just like it started off with a bang and it just didn't let up man like I was just say bang like I don't mean like an explosion or an action sequence. I mean I was ready to say where these kids were out in their lives like you know what I mean like. I was just I was. I was really stark up because there was like a little bit of a time job and everyone is at different points in their lives and it just it made sense like where we kick off in that first episode it made sense for everyone to be see where they are apologies there were there were a lot of complaints like a lot of people were saying these kids on acting the same way as they were lawsuits as well. I mean teenagers Dale like Eh fucking Mitchely these actr- actors and actresses I did a little bit. I did a little bit. There was a little bit of different kind of like character decisions than what we've been led to believe from before I really like point out any specific sort of situations like that at the moment but that definitely was some that let's let's solve with mark and eleven dirt machen eleven right. They're they're adorable like mainly because because I still take I still think Millie Bobby Brown is the M._v._p.. Of this entire Shire I do think there is one character in this in this season out sean trying to a little bit latch on her and we'll get to him but yeah that those two that relationship like the band of between them to fantastic like I dump year. I love all of it. I'd dump your ass. Yeah that's right. That's what I up your ass and that comes from off the back of dealing with Max and that's you know you could take this in a in a Soda S. J. W. Sort of way but it does. It didn't really come come across like like that. Wife may like I just love the way that she was able to figure out her identity and figure out her place in this well because you know she is not a normal all human being like she was not granted rise like a normal child she she she had a terrible traumatic childhood which if you want to be metaphorical then you can use that as a metaphor for something else but she <hes> she she eventually figures out where she fits in like in his big fucking puzzle pace man like that whole journey throughout this as just absolutely absolutely amazing. I absolutely adored this whole this whole awkward with eleven I think another big standout and it's they stand out but doc Ri- Montgomery as Billy Billy fucking killed at this as like I didn't like him loss but possessed billy was fucking awesome dude billy hit hitting on Mrs Willow Shit like all that Shit but yeah he was awesome. Dude he also got a final redemption by with that was great most of the pretty much all the character rocks and this is absolutely love with especially Steve Hartington and Robin. I love what they did with Robert like I I was talking to call him and I think calling it an I going to. This is a little bit of a tasty guys. I think calling it an I going to do like our little special rep aside about about these three seasons when we get some time but I call it wasn't too plays about the whole Robin thing coming out of Malwa like those narrow really sort of set up to be homosexual like kind of like setting on setting it up to be stays at Robin but I I like to I like that was unexpected like we didn't need to drop it like any like hints or intellect that about like it was just it was just it was fantastic. I really like to ban and that whole scoops the scripts tour or whatever that was that was awesome loves it like the plot of this story was great this as it was great. I love what they did with the Russians. The introduction of the Russians felt natural because it's it's the era it's nineteen ninety-five so it's just like well. The has to be this this this red fair. I like that has to be that like a round hole comes around this this whole period what they did with the upside down was right like the the the the design of the mines lab was great the C._J.. At points was absolutely fantastic was mixed with practical effects as well. The stuff with the rats was disgusting but also a Grad at the same time. There's there's a lot to cover here but I I go into every single little detail I had they must fund with the season in a very long time. I it like in a in a lot of T._v.. Shows it out saying race. I could not applaud this this as in any high up but my ah biggest standout there has to be debited Haba as Hopper Man Hoffa was absolutely incredible this as he was just hilarious and endearing and and just just quick quick too quick to action at the same time like he was just so fun to watch no matter who he interacted with whether it be Alexi whether it be fuck what's her name <hes> Joyce or whether it be a lesson like like it was just h h character that he had interaction with was just outstanding when he was going head to toe against the Myo Against Carrio as his character and that was that was just it was just a joy to watch so they'll hats off to you David Daba you needed away enough to hell boy because God damn so yeah man. I think this is one of my favorites seasons of TV. I put this up. They would save one. I'd I'd like that's a big coal but this is this is why up that account way to where he wants. Listen again. It could not be any oil coal an old man because I think <hes> I get crazy to think that it's not close to being on policies in one and season is absolutely incredible. I'll just thinking about before. Honestly this is a funny little pattern of noticed and it's probably not intentional but I think this is Larry. Netflix has a really really good track record with season three's in fact even a step further say they have a really really bad track record would season two's seems to be if it's dead. Devil oranges new black stranger things are just so adjusted jaren season three. I can say something about that. What's what's are inside? They're all the same quality obviously but like a Lotta these shows great first season second season for me. Dip softened sort of loses track where comes back and the third season comes back full force brings back <unk> some elements throughout the season and <hes> yeah and maybe I'm just looking too much into it but absolutely I've noticed and this applies tenfold to hit cassese three. I agree a lot of people Susan to get off a little bit. I couldn't tell you why I don't know why the station too much debbie dogs yeah. I still thought that will kind of their new. I guess maybe they went as threatening but they were fun. I guess but yeah this this bill and obviously the Mon- Flyer whoo that's a threat okay I'll go through some of the characters like you did obviously rubbing Dovidenko Russia term those such cola Terminator. This show loves racing eighty stuff you-know-who. He looked like he looked like a mix between donald and the combat trick yeah. I wonder if that's going to must've thought of that at some point right <hes> but yeah let's go to the plot then man the idea of using the Russians when I first are really going that is not a little on the nose but the execution was flawless man fucking grow such a coal back to those types of films and it's it really added an extra freshness to it all giving us that billing of the web bring it all in it kept it fresh and all that but on Cold War elements like sneaking to the thighs trying to escape really took him back to like there's good action adventure movies which we don't get a lot of these days as a great way to tame characters up as well. It's hats off to him. Those are great are rocking storyline hurt. We get more of that. In future seasons obviously merely more brown as always. She says she carries the show but she really represents the hot of the shirt. A lot of screenwriters and stuff values like a fish out of water character is a way to bring in this element of what's the word I'm looking for. I'll think later but yeah just basically this whole element of discovery and like growing up and stuff and she still still stays like that what stranger things has always been really really really good at is like capturing how kids interact with each other especially like before I find some stuff and so all these relationship issues. Here's the way how Max is big L. Dump Mike and how Maxwell distress out those things like that's so fucking realistic a lot of those moments I can relate to you or I can see friends in those scenarios. I haven't heard anyone till the show W. stuff <unk> that can that can jump off a cliff because that's how people acted like that's how at some people on these hats off to screenwriters in particular and the directors because like they capture capture that childlike element perfectly to me. Obviously Jim Hopper was amazing really bummed with the killing off of him was talking more about that later office yeah yeah let's talk about that. After we after great we can talk about the future but yeah he had the Great Action Sans if he is gone for some reason that'd be a major Bama because he gets some of the him as the authority figure he he gets his has great moments and he was actions but he also had a really great this season I think absolutely great relatable or super reliable for me but understandable we can Shuman Ach so that's Steve. We've it's amazing to look at him as he gone from like the bullying phase of one until I this lovable Laka character now but he is right and his relationship with Robin was also house say so. I didn't think he was ever bullied died like he. He never came across a someone who wanted to be a bully impress for shoal but never a bully or is never is never as bad as billy for example straight up as an antagonistic time but I think season one black assure you get other kids who are trying to cut Mike Yeah I think it was about them but yeah he was he was at antagonist <unk> ways but he's tomase transform ceremonies such as the character that like I felt like I was not meant to lack to character that a mental love and I do love and he has some great character moments also enrollment as well. I thought the twist of her. Coming out so the thing to him was I didn't stay coming brothels fucking griot other great caq the work group pulled the rug out from underneath us a little bit disappointed Dustin didn't spend so much time with the cats are wish he would have to be honest the season but I thought actor his Sir weirdly charismatic in like the Weirdest Wise He's enjoyable to watch SOM- still I love the never ending story at the for all of that. Is this the moment where I sung to each other on the phone never any story theme Song Right Sir one of very few criticisms of this is I hide good that people seem to lock the me. It felt like it was out of turn with the rest of the chartres they'll start using split screens and I started like <hes> I wouldn't call it. Mark love demand. I wouldn't call it Krinsky but it was close to it for me. It felt as cheesy for me. I was a little too cheesy for me. I don't take that away from the shark but that Merman was one. I didn't love personally but under some people do like it so I'll just let that slide yeah and the other thing that's obvious but I think she mentioned is strange. Things three was trying to think the franchise is three for three for Amazing Cinematography also Awesome Moody Atmospheric allotting and a fucking derp soundtrack this not just the soundtrack but the score as well in particular the score act the way they use the sin and sort of his birth nostalgic but also effective and just really captured Zion overweight into bat sometime and it's still sort of like this unique vibe to insert cool this shark could have dog shit riding and still bad acting and I still might watch it just cinematography and score learn like that's that's how much I fucking love at dude. Maybe I'm wrong but still Yemen and I loved how would just the way the writing were. The rotting also stayed out. Thanks for this because the way that would paint the characters in the corners with SAR Griot having eleven loser POWs at one point <hes> having having the guys is it the little peace between them and stuff even as awesome like their ceremony disgrace elements of this. It's it's awesome faulk left and other than that it's awesome. It's like trying to think of agitates to decide that. It's it's awesome I think I think we should talk about the Fiji. Let's talk about the the advice credit. Sane rights are the Russians have a demagogue and ride like that's the big takeaway but I mean obviously there's another take away so the next to the poor chapter Satan in his cell they say no not the American and who could who could the American bay well. We heard the top awry we hope it's Hoffa but it could also be Dr Brennan. That's that's eleven's father or sons Baklava because we know that he's actually alive and it wouldn't make it would make a lot of sense because I mean he could be. The one that helped the Russians create the cage as they call it yeah if that means hope is dead a sad panda but guess things need to move on to do other things too. I don't think he's dead. fucking can wai wait and see a body so he's not dead Yep. That's the role. If you see a body <hes> anything can happen Sir but also eleven never regained her palace so I think that's going to be a big thing going forward. Would you also mentioned about just want agree with you. Billy was really fucking awesome. This season is always been a great antagonist <unk>. They used in the season. It was pretty fucking griot. <hes> I always love it when they can find a way to have like the kids. The kids in the adults fight the battles this. I've always loved how did that. In the patient's risk writer Yes sir moving forward trying to full caught hot fucking white for it as strange things three. I know we're not normally review shows but should we give it a great out ten yeah. I guess it's Annoy Infamy Yeah. I'M GONNA go pretty much like there's. It's not really anything in here. That's really negative me. I'm GonNa go as close as I can to town because I think the first one is ten so I'm going to get nine point five. I also just want to say that I'm really glad that that didn't mention the law SISTA that one episode in as into where does to Philadelphia like like that that whole threat is just being completely left out so I think that is a smart idea. I wasn't really one of the ones that fully hated that beside. I thought it was a I thought it circe episode in a sort of branch away from Hawkins but <hes> it didn't really pan out for him so I'm glad that in ring about bring it up now that she mentioned it like you know I'll be honest ours. Sir enthralled with the the story with the character already had on even think of that but I've I liked that episode actually really liked it on our Lotta people. Didn't I really liked it. I was interested as characters <hes>. Maybe they'll come back in a way. Maybe they just gonNA leave him alone. Who knows I would like to see more to do with them but the problem with that I suppose stranger things has a lot of characters and it's not game of thrones? They're not GONNA kill off a character every second episode so if they were to bring this practice back in I'd do it in a way where they could still juggle everybody and give everybody the due diligence and I'm sure I could because the fucking great writers so I trust whatever they want to do with that but sounds like yeah maybe they wanted to get one direction that change their minds and went back otherwise they're doing great anyways. That's trying to think three we're going to end today with a final review for crawl. Okay Crawl Donovan live in deep into spoil is not. There's not much to spoil the alligators that eight people in the Water Zohab. What did you think I hated this movie? I I think I fucking. I think got loved this movie. I watched it yesterday and man this was this is just a rough watch from again what they going together the gone for like a big ride subtle craniofacial Amanda just didn't I didn't like any of it really anyway. It take my interest because it's directed by Alexandra. Isaiah came going to say auto and hey directed look the crime as but they're lace con fun right like it's the the to the hills of is and he made a piranha which is awful but kind of on a decide intentionally hurtful Parana right right yeah but I mean like it's still awful yeah we could separate bucket apples and oranges but it's still awful and it was just crawl. I think where it fell apart for me was that it just took itself way too seriously for it to be fun. I think if it if it had a little bit more of that intentional sort of like big ride stuff in like Parana that maybe could fall into a little bit more entertaining entertaining sort of film but it just wasn't like for me where it kind of fell apart was is there were there was a lot of things like okay so there are a lot of conveniences right so convenient weather events convenient things that are breaking off at the right time the right place the like okay not to mention. That's shaken like outswim. Five alligators like don't forget alligators. I like Donald Souls who live in water for thousands and thousands of years so <hes>. Let's not forget that also just the fact that like you know look. I like <hes> class go to Larry <hes> like she's Australia like like that bias. I like A. I don't think she's Grad in this. I don't think she really gets like a moment to really shine and I really liked by pepe like Barry. Pepe was in saving private. Ryan Ryan is fucking awesome coincidentally also one of the greatest time battlefield earth. I don't think either of those two can kill to carry this movie like they should be able to just feels it feels like the same shit like I thought it was going to be a little bit more jaws Jauzi but it wasn't like this alligator like immediately like there's no hiding around or what it is like sis. It falls from a second story at into basement and she's like right there right this A._J.. Is Fine like it's okay at some points. It was just like that looks. That doesn't look right. I think yeah I think what is that it just it just it does take itself. Wijers seriously like we get emotional story bates where they shouldn't bay like. There's a hurricane going on outside. Tom Is of the essence but NAR. Let's stop here and look at all. The fucking doc and fight is in shade and let's have a hot hot by it I don't I don't understand that like I don't get that it just yeah it was it was a stupid fucking. Maybe probably going to forget it. I think there is I plus surprisingly rising. Lee and I think that's the goal the goal acta like there's a lot of blood and guts in this well not a lot. I mean like look. There's there's enough to keep you satisfied if you're into that kind of stuff. I don't think that necessarily saves the movie <hes>. I think it's like oh well look. I like that kind of thing and I'm glad that in kill the dog like that's always a plus. It's it's fucking forgettable really kind of sad that Sam Ramey was attached to this as a producer. This is another reason why bolaise delays producer credits main shit probably GonNa give this to divine love this holiday. Did I loved it but this is probably the most we've ever disagree. I thought this movie was really surprisingly decent. I went in with mediocre expectations and it's supposed I actually liked the main thing I liked about it. Was the CACA work authorities very solid CARADOC. I do have some issues that dot that blend into that the rich get into but yeah this movie look we. We can't beat around the Bush kept the situation that these characters are in is a little not only dumb but unbelievable. They're trapped in this crawlspace which apparently in Florida is very rare. <hes> and there are two alligators trapped in there with them and it's and the water's rising and timed thing okay. That's Kinda dumb. It's almost probably impossible to fair enough the come through the joint but but once I'm over that and now this film also has other gaps in logic which I need to address but once that I think everything's done pretty well. I think it does suspense well. I think it does I was really surprised how the characteristic talk to work and are like the relationship twins go and father was and how she's trying to earn a comic these these postal vaguely time to swimming even though does sort of main she's kind of superhuman without running them at times swimming the times or even though she has a head start. It's like come on. I don't think that's super possible even if Diane thank you Mr the blankets blink of an eye but I actually like the soundtrack as well the C._G._I.. I think look all the weather stuff looks good the crock stuff it's hit and miss. There are some moments where it looks good there. Some where it's lyle again is sorry alligators Saria but like the first or opening the first time you see alligators. It's might be the first time you see an alligator it. It looks very like they could've used more of the shadows to hide it or something and you're right. The goal was was kind of cool but that Tauzin floor have to wear okay so most of my problems with this film don't actually tied to the filmmaking. It's more like logic stuff so for example while the two main characters survive they get bit a lot and they are like this one thing towards the end where she gets did on the hand like a debt roughing. It should have all my length it should she should she should not have escaped that fucking death-row this is this is a nearly one Anton creature. Did you say this lies that allegation. There's low why she's escaping that death row well. She's she's just rolling around with instead of just like your fucking dead woman Lark even if you to the fact that you got the flare burned collector or escape even if it did fair enough right arm should've been Ritz doff or at least at the very least it should have been broken but in the literal next same little actually unlike the next shot she swimming wok it's perfectly fine and you could maybe adrenaline but no should not be there and then next sane almost directly off. She's actually got two hands gripping onto the roof trying to push yourself up and find on-spot Stu struggle with the push up so if a crocus chillier my arm I'm not doing that. I was going to go one four year. At the end the father the father gets <hes> bitten clean off cloth right and then suddenly he's he ends up on the roof on the on the roof to to save his daughter. How did you do that? You climb all the way up there with one. I just don't understand that it is ridiculous man. The film is a lots of moments for me. That brexit has level movie like this full may because then it's just not about survival is lucky scriptwriting point now. That's actually a good point because like you're right. It is in many aspects a bit of a survival film and like they'd spend long moments where they're trying to patch up their wounds and stuff so I can survive but then you undercut all that when they can survive things like a death roll. Even someone's like a little nibble like you should be that happened a small Greis. I'll be crying for three hours art at the very least but these guys over there like like dwayne Johnson against a million men with bullets all of a sudden. I'm scared and what the body needs some. Thanks Yeah Yeah let me the dialogue was doug. Shit right like I ended up. I heard a pace of dialogue a lot of dialogue and I was like I gotta pull out. My friend brought that down because this okay ever listen to this right. Let's Bait does pay Brian Lizard Shifts. That's an insult. I could have been worse but yeah it's paper Lizard Shits hits. That sounds like it sounds like a page thirteen movie that really wants to say the word fuck but for its porno page Ethan saying it's probably at least am I guess it's M._A.. A here is it all talk or just say fuck. You have the writing just say fuck. Call it a cont by you have the right you can do see Brian fucking ripple yeah like I get it. You're mad and search site <unk> something worse than a Pea brain wiza- chip like this baby. The dialogue between the characters wasn't bad. I thought it was actually those actually Kinda Hot Phil. I like okay for a low budget horror film. I should say that because a lot of these days like I think this is what I liked about it mostly right in this day and age most of the horror films were getting out feels like like some of the slashes that come in come back and I love that but when it's not that it's not ten episodes for conjuring came along everything is like these really bland in very bland they trigger character focus with Cactus have nothing memorable about them and by these spirits or things things. You can't see all these weird mystery things. I just liked this genre. was this topic genre film. I feel like the most potter was done well if you're willing to give it as much as I did. The being said like we just listed more person cons so for me. This is like a it's a seven. I think it's definitely more than apostles entertained the whole time. I was never bored. I want to know what's going to happen next. I think are really really good at raising the stakes. I think they was found new is to up the ante but if they could just <unk> honestly think if they could just fix them that logic stuff could have been a night for me. I like the soundtrack to you. I should say and also uh-huh you could take you could take a prior but the way they did color grading this film the way they really crush the contrast and just really reminded me of like those twenty ten films like it was more popular back then where he was like the me in two thousand and five Shero and I'm seeing that in a big screener wall and that's kind of cool but like that comes out and personal taste seven tenths made to be honest about well. Yes now John on news right up your alley. Its thickness creature. phages aren't really my thing. It's just like yeah it usually does come down to like really sick of santeuil writing. The writings always just kind of like. Let's let's try this element in so that conveniently get out of this situation. You know it's always like that pretty much. In Crater phages like the really kind of base that is jaws but I mean that's a fucking Stella ethic moving. I took about anything that JOE is is a little unfair because for its time at the very least it was pretty fucking revolutionary <hes> you can still sell it now and funding and I think that wraps it up full midnight may not double feature decide that movie it could have been a lot worse. I think a lot of my positively is gone all by didn't it's like placid in our I've seen of saint how bad crock Alagabid I can get <hes> but yeah that's it for me not feature. Where'd I find us if they want to say say us well you can find us on facebook and paid which has been featured in the way of that group which is the the oft potty? That's where we first means news and what's to come here. I'm in favor of a little community so be sure to join that little community. We let us know how how we doing that'd be Olsen and take take part in our polls Colin. Just throw a poll. What's your what's your favorite price apocalyptic movie? I somewhat somewhere in Matt's rambling like Oh let me come in on this. We appreciate it yeah. Hey I can multitask award the planet of the Apes. That's one of my favorite movies but the reason why we that Paul is because we have the book of they lycoming openness h presentation episodes so that's going to be dropping some time at the weekend really came for that. We're also on instagram which is at me not patriot and we're on twitter which said M._d._f.. pod and I promise I don't always sound like this. I am nicely because because I've sick if you hate me on this emphasized at the spot a man into the spot of step aside <hes> that's what that is also plays room to write reviews on items that would be outstanding. Just let us know what we're doing wrong what we're doing right and bay shelter right right us with the star that you think that we deserve. That'd be Awesome Matt. What is happening with you recently? What are you going on but projects outside of India? I'm my Sir Sir.

Monocle 24: The Globalist

58:17 min | 1 year ago

Monday 19 August

"You're listening to the globalist first broadcast on the nineteenth of august two thousand and nineteen and twenty four the globalist in association with u._b._s. uh-huh taylor this is the globalist coming to you live from midori house in london. I'm markus beep coming up week at the latest on the heroics we into her on the west over iranian tanker which has again set sail hours after cheaper also rejected an american request to detain the vessel further and and we have several high profile meetings in the diary of a few in this week including a sit down with mccraw we look at his approach to diplomacy musty with europe will also head to hong kong. We will hear why the c._d. Stacy's bracing itself for yet another week of demonstrations often estimated one point seven million people took to the streets peacefully on sunday and we speak to a fashion critic for the washington post who tell the difference between writing for daily newspapers and specialist at least magazine us we will also flip through the morning newspapers and then heads to check in with our editor in chief tyler brule who will tell us why it's important that in switzerland jilting are walking themselves back to school that is all ahead right here on the globalist life from london so welcome to the globalist on this monday the nineteenth of august. We'll get the inside softball rogers in a moment on the iranian tanker that has now been released by gibraltar's authorities but first. Let's go through some of the stories <music> on our agenda. Wildfires in gran canaria forced around four thousand people to flee their homes rescue workers workers are battling to save to cavers traps in a cavern in the tatra mountains in poland after narrow tunnel flooded with water denmark's walks prime minister says greenland is not for sale and the idea of selling it to the united states is absurd president donald trump's economic advisor confirmed into that the u._s. would be interested in buying the world's largest island and today's edition of the monocle minutes reports are new sets of rules for how russian russian scientists or to interact with foreign colleagues. The governments must be informed. If any russian scientist wants to meet with the foreign contemporary five days in its boss. You are listening to monocle twenty four the uranian tanker at the center of a diplomatic row between britain and i and iran has left to salsa this. She was held for weeks by local authorities on suspicion of transporting oil to syria the tanker row. Oh stoked tensions between the u._s. and iran and also the u._k. Seems to have been cool in the middle of the power. Play join me now for more is paul. Rogers professor of peace studies at bradford university. Welcome to the program again paul so over the weekend gibraltar rejected a request by the u._s. to again sees this these tanker. How of disappointments is it for washington. That's the c. Pass now being released. I think it was quite surprise on friday. When very late the day in fact after the gibraltar in supreme court basically decided to the tanker could leave that stage the united states and then tried this other the methods as well as internationally method trying to keep the tanker impounded <hes> it will be a real disappointment to washington. I suspect because it was a surprise on the british side that the americans were even doing this to show their determination to try to keep these sanctions going on <hes> as far as one can tell the detroit president gibraltarians were in a position to say no because while the tanker self <hes> was apparently under the aegis of at least of the iranian the revolutionary guard corps which has prescribed organization the united states it is not in europe is not listed in the e._u. As a terrorist organization and folded gibraltar view was that they didn't have any reason to abide by the american request <hes> so basically the tanker set sail <hes> there indications indications that he's going to as fast poltical will become a martyr in greece is not clear what will happen then what is quite interesting is two things. One is the iranian rainy ambassador in london. Hamid exit has actually said over the weekend. A couple of engineering groups from around went to gibraltar basic. Yeah i think to to boost up the technical side of the crew on the tanker on the tankers now set sail <hes> the other interesting thing is this change of name the grace one is now the adron daria one and it is registered a kiss him which causes the big <hes> ireland in the persian gulf iranian island just near the big porta bander abbas so in a sense the iranians in their own way really saying this is very much out tancredo true forget it. I'm afraid to gain when go down to one in washington and how uncomfortable has the situation being for the u._k. Then well it could be potentially very difficult on the reason for this is as positive is changing naval policy over for the last eight to nine years so under the current government in his previous coalition. <hes> britain has decided to become more active to use the old phrase easter suez so essentially essentially you have the facility which the british minesweepers used to use <hes> in the gulf at bahrain has now been elevated to a base and as of april this this year <hes> the british actress to base a warship permanently fully patch warship at basis currently type twenty three frigate montrose dodges being increased every now have a much larger agemates dunkin type forty five destroy also there and yet another type twenty three frigate h miscanthus on its way so the point is the british built up their forces there the crucial thing here. I know this is a bit long winded. The crucial thing here is that the british were trying to get a european pinfolds together naval tools to more or less protect the <hes> <hes> the shipping british and european shipping go through the gulf. They're giving that up there. Goning owning would operation sentinel which is american lead impasse. Most significant voltaire actually offered to have one of their ships as leach. If any maritime strike group that is organized by the united states. What this means is if the was a contact with iran britain will be right in the middle of it and frankly with all this guy on him brexit exit the british prime minister boris johnson would almost be beholden to washington so that is where i know it's a long winded answer. That is where i think there's not a concern in the foreign office about southern and unexpectedly getting almost immersed in something rather bigger than was expected these happened is it all down to the new government in london. Did it is partly down to that. It may be a coincidence circuit of the previous government through the office was trying to organize this european patrol role if you like the germans were very reluctant to do this and i think the french followed suit on that meant that he was more than more or less in the water that more or less coincided with mr the johnson taking over from theresa may so yes it may be a question of timing but his quite clear that under the current government the the inclination to stay pretty close host mr trump. <hes> is stronger than it was under. Mrs may think is an interesting situation to be particular say with all this controversy over brexit the president and looking at the relations with continental europe. How do you see how do you think for example germany and franz of you. What is happening now. I think they'll take and said because although britain technically is still wanting to pursue the key nuclear agreement and remember all this started with president trump withdrawing from that the germans and the french from those particular that kept up the iranians are not too happy about the way that the europeans haven't matched their words with deeds in terms of helping to sorta sorta trying to avoid the american sanctions for the reality is something that for now britain's held onto the idea that it is in favor of maintaining this this nuclear deal <hes> be the americans out of that and of course if push came to shove aware ended up with any kind of conflict than the british position could change could change change which would mean a sort of a part of the ways between britain and germany and france on this particular issue. Is it looking at what you're talking about over there now the british government seeming to be more willing to collaborate with trump more so than before you see many similarities now to the year two thousand and three and how bush and blair were leading the wage war with iraq. I think that's there's something in that's i mean blair was absolutely determined from the style and that was much longer thing i mean y- ed between nine eleven and that famous axis of evil speech in january two thousand and two and the start of the war was fourteen months but throughout that time mr blair was very prost within in approaching close to bush in the united states the risk i think for mr johnson is he's going to be almost forced by the brexit circumstances to be pads. That's close to the united states senate foreign office would want and i'm talking about the civil servants more than the politicians so i think this is an area where there is the potential to have a kind of johnston <hes> trump access <hes> rather more complex than the bush bad play one which is very straightforward and of course this position in here's what we keep coming back to is britain needs trump. If brexit is to succeed and that is where the british government is potentially good being quite a difficult position position and as i said in the beginning of this interview this iranian sanca that was at the center of the diplomatic row between president iran that she has left trip walter now. What do you think the longer lasting impact of that argument is going to be if you look at the relationship between the u._k. And iran the u._k. And the u._s. well there are many people people many professionals in the diplomatic service in the foreign office who believe that we should stay open to iran others really other professional levels very big difference of opinion between them on people john bolton in in in the united states the national security adviser so to that extent. I think you do have this difference. What it means in the longer term <hes> who can say i mean it may well be the negotiations ensue and some sort of deal is actually put together to replace the the nuclear deal not very hopeful about that in the shorter term one has to say what is going to happen to this tanker. Would it be possible for example on route to greece that if it doesn't actually end up to kalamata the americans intervene with extreme and actually take it into custody the if that was to happen say in the eastern mediterranean to think very suddenly we will be in something of a state day to crisis so quite apart from anything else. That's that doesn't indeed polaroid usa. Thank you very much for joining us here. In the clinic russian president vladimir putin will be so we can meet face to face a with a to european leaders i today he's meeting francis eminonu mccraw and on wednesday he will fly to helsinki for talks with the finnish president solely leanest but what is the russian leader looking to gain from these meetings. Is it just nice photo toonces. That's may booze tea's popularity back at home or something more significance joining me on the line near mark galeotti senior associate fellow at the royal united services institute. Welcome to the brokers so mark. What is your perception. Is this just a coincidence or is now more eager to me. E you leaders than before well well to large extent this as indeed about the optics. It's about the fact that just before the g seven meeting he sort of slips in little sort of g seven and a half conversation the station with macron. I don't think he's necessarily relying on anything more than that. However from his point of view he does see france as is a potentially useful spoiler both within the e._u. Within the west as a whole and he no he is he's trying to explore. I wouldn't say get out. Roots is but ways in which you can actually improve russia's position has become problematically isolated and looking us now he meaning these european leaders i do think using has some kind of a specific approach to how to deal with europe. Does he have a strategy not really because i don't weigh what you're gonna. Understand is from from the russians point of view. The european union doesn't exist. They don't really think it's it's a real structure in and of itself they actually look at europe simply as a collection of competing and sometimes cooperating states so very much i mean he he tends to always look at the way of how he can play the french against the germans the germans against the british the british the french so this is obviously part of that. He's he's going to go and fratto macron. He's going to get the sense to macron that somehow. France can be any kind of a unique position interlocutor. We know that macron plans to push on ukraine and although i didn't think putin is actually is actually gonna giving substantial. We might see some positive noises about how the russians would love to see some kind of progress being made but i think it's really a very sort of broad what kind of divide and rule rather than anything more sophisticated than that exactly. Let's remember that the e._u. Sanctions against russia william post already five years ago. I'm wondering during you if either of the policies macropoulos have anything real really new to say too. It's not really the the one variable. It has changed. Two variables have changed the the most immediate. One is the election of zilenski in ukraine and skis definitely making moves that he would like to see some in kind of renewed negotiation with the russians so if nothing else putin has the sound as if he's interested has to sound receptive so yes has to go through the motions but the big variable is is it always looming over all geopolitics as the trump factor now my cronin's very keen to not look as though he some kind of interlocutor rocketed with trump or trumps messenger boy but putin and the russians overall theory very well aware of europe's discomfort about an increasing the sort of bullish and woolley in united states and i think that's that's an area that putin is going to help to perhaps if he can just slide a little bit of tension into the relationship that'll be good. What would that mean practical terms in practical terms. Essentially i think again it will really be about the human dynamics putin jim. We want to push this idea that as far as he's concerned europe is a natural interlocutor. Russia russia considers itself a european country. Am i'm and maybe even doesn't he's perplexed. He's perplexed why the europeans are so happy to basically let the americans bully them around and that gets in the way given that france has a trading relationship with russia that still worth over ten billion euro tumbling pounds a year in that kind of context. He's gonna basically pushing the line seem from the russians before which is essentially the the europeans are allowing themselves and their interests to be used by the americans cnn's <hes> again. I don't think it's because putin thinks he's gonna actually make any dramatic <hes> move forward from his point of view just that first photo op when he seen shaking macron's hand is a win but nonetheless he's there. He will try and do what he can't push. That point is there are such as beauty and is joined to benefit from the difficulties. The e._u. is facing at the moment just looking with brexit for example well -solutely in from the russians point of view breaks it is a gift and the russians are essentially that their genitals europe is to divide provide to distract into dismay really they want to make sure that europe doesn't have the unity or the bandwidth to do anything about russia's own adventurism and so from that point of view brexit has been great so again what we will see is just as we see in all other kinds of bilateral interactions putin speaking to as an interlocutor more or less saying you're the you're the ones we really think fab your the ones we really want to listen to. Isn't it a shame that you'll being dragged down by your other european. Allies brexit has definitely helped facilitate that so long some meeting francis eminent macro today and then he's off to hills in on wednesday to me to the finish president president solely niinisto how different you think these discussions will be between say macro and between new stern finland very very different i mean the finish relationship with russia is an interesting one of its one that sort of dates back a long way and it's a strikingly pragmatic won the fins <music> on nachos a friends of the russians but they're very well well aware that they have this much larger np potentially quite aggressive neighbor on their borders and therefore the fins wall absolutely making it clear that their their interests are towards europe but nonetheless they basically want to minimize the overt frictions that are there so you might say my crawl. This is going to be about geopolitics big picture a certain amount of geopolitical posturing the finns vins. It's going to be much more about pragmatism about actually saying how existing trade and human contacts with the border work and and essentially by hundred percent that evening crisis times they can be business as usual and just finally mark. What are you expecting from this week any any any breakthrough so any main getaways so not really i mean i think everyone would like to think that you know on on the primary issue is ukraine. There is scope for progress but it's is such a complex problem. It's a veritable rubik's cube and with so many moving parts. It's really hard to see how they can be any real progress particularly because no one wants to announce anything. No one wants to look as if they're too eager until they're sure they're going to have some kind of progress so i think the first thing is going to be starting to basically clearly make quite overtures. The russians are hoping that the europeans will help them get out of there ukrainian mess. I'm not sure if that's going to happen margaliot. Thank you very much for joining us. Here are monocle twenty four. You're listening to the globalist still to come in the program. Why syrian refugees in turkey are concerned about unger us shifting attitude. You'd over refugees and we will be hearing. What's making the news in switzerland. When one calls editor-in-chief tyler brule <unk> joins me later on in the broker you're listening two hundred twenty four stay tuned u._b._s. has a one nine hundred investment analysts from over one hundred different countries sir over nine hundred of the sharpest minds and freshest thinkers in the world of finance today. No one is more. No no one knows small and find out how we can help you contact us at u._b._s. Dot com welcome back. You're listening to the globalist on monocle twenty four. I am marcus hippie. What seems like a shift in ankara. Certitudes towards awards refugees has raised fierce off mass deportations among syrians living in turkey turkey is currently home to the largest refugee population in the world and has also announced measures to limit the number of syrian microns in eastern bull and joining me for moyes isla gene yucky journalist based in istanbul welcome to the program isla so syrian migrants in took your concern to what has happened in recent months well the main driver. It seems behind this change. <hes> in turkey's very generous in welcoming policy toward syrians is been a slowing economy a man have grown disenchanted with hosting so many refugees as the economy slows blaming them for taking jobs and and seeing the government's generous benefits for syrians as affecting their lives. What we're seeing happening now is that tomorrow is he's a deadline august. The twentieth twentieth win on richest syrian refugees should leave istanbul tony more there isn't there are more than five hundred thousand syrian to a register to live in istanbul. They have residence permits that allow them to share but almost just as many more about half a million people are not registered to live in istanbul so they are being told that they must return to the provinces where they are permitted right to live and all the deadline is tomorrow. Authorities have been cracking down in recent weeks <hes> setting up checkpoints entering workplaces places and restaurants and other public venues to check people's papers and athens detaining them on the spot and sending them back to their provinces says this is incredibly obviously disrupting people when they thought that they had until august twentieth but there's also more serious allegations that people who have have been <hes> checked and discovered that they don't have permission in istanbul or even in turkey. Maybe they've entered turkey illegally <hes> not at a proper hopper border point. There's been allegations that they've been deported back to syria now. The government denies that it's deported anybody <hes> through coercion but i've spoken can to a family that says that they were picked up and illegally sent back and there's been media reports of dozens of other people so this this is more than just moving people on. I two they're registered provinces. It's potentially also sending them back to a dangerous place where there is still a war going on. So what do you expect will actually happen to mora when when betty's the deadline date it's difficult to know because again these measures have already been <hes> enforced on what we could either see that this crackdown intensifies that more and more people are stopped and checked and taken away from the city <hes> but there's also been signals that the government realized that this is this is this is quite difficult and very harsh for people <hes> and member of the ruling ruling party a senior official suggested recently that they could extend the deadline <hes> and hope that more people would leave voluntarily the government controls controls the turkish state controls to areas of syria already after two incursions into that country <hes> twenty sixteen and it wants people to move back to those areas that says it is stabilized. There's also talked now. <hes> turkeys involved in negotiations with the united states and setting up a buffer zone in another part of syria on that's currently controlled by syrian kurds and that's another place where they would like to see syrian refugees return so at this moment. It's difficult to say whether it'll be a tangible difference or whether the status quo will continue were soon face these spot checks and their lives are certainly uprooted just finally how do you think all the power say the united states so for example the e you view what is happening now. Let's remember that's too key has made a deal with with the european union already in two thousand sixteen which was designed to limit the number of migrants crossing from circuit greece. That's right. I mean these <hes> the issue shoot of the <hes> allegations of enforced deportations contravenes both turkish and international law and the european union which as you you said has his arrangement with turkey in which they're paying <hes> the government six billion euros in order to stem the flow of irregular migration to europe have said that it's concerned about these these allegations and that it will investigate them to some extent but largely there hasn't been any kind of widespread questioning even of this change engine turkish policy. I'm sh- dir that officials in the west are nervous because turkey has helped create a buffer and prevent so many people from <hes> fleeing into europe and if this continues that could possibly change there could be more people seeking to cross from turkey to greece but at the stage it seems as if there might be a wait and see the effort and maybe an acknowledgement that turkey is straining that it has was other <hes> refugees almost five million people who've been displaced living here and is is difficult for it to care for so many people isla gene yucky in stumble. Thank you very much for joining us. Here are monica farm next year on the globalist we shift our attention to hong kong where the city is once again bracing itself for huge anti-government demonstration association so this week and it's debase to one point seven million people to pursue sued the streets over the weekend braving heavy rain in a peaceful rally it was marked. It was a marked contrast to the sometimes violent colossus. Hong kong has seen over over the past eleven weeks including the occupation of the city's airport. The protest organizers have their civil human rights front were only authorized by police to hold a demonstration inside the city's victoria park just outside. The park is aware monaco's current suit up with paul zimmerman. He's lisa district councillor n._c._o. Of designing hong kong a nonprofit focused on sustainable urban planning developments and governs let seventy sam everybody's just here with their umbrella and bring themselves almost no favorite moscow suffused with a mosque but almost hardly anybody everybody see you're showing face is that why are people willing to show their faces. Today people want to show their solidarity with what is happening and <hes> you know. This is a movement that is not going to go away. Even though oh somebody might make a mistake i think that's what they tried to say really wants beijing and and the government to take these five demands v made serious. It's very reasonable. The wording may change. I am sure that the demoss being put somewhat extreme but democratic reform is home call because china should recognize that what has happened here is because because they hadn't bad advice because executive council the legislative council the advisory boards totally unrepresentative of the community and therefore the walked off the cliff and then you walk over clinton with the extradition bill they have all this mayhem. China doesn't meet that. I mean i don't have these kind out of active duty so you know a more peaceful relationship with hong kong will be in a relationship with i trust the hong people because people will be boringly prudent. You know i hope we can find a way of getting china to understand that last week rhetoric the secretary for for constitutional mainland affairs. He said that if we want democratic reforms speak with china. It's something that he set for the last two years while all the platform and that channel doesn't exist for democrats to speak with china but if that's what he's series about and he's honest about it and he should organize that channel organize that platform certain discussions can start if he's honest about his commons and that's what really need. I mean one country. Two system is difficult concept at an meet deliberation and if if you don't have the liberation is not gonna it's not gonna work and it's going to flare up of your scenes the trips and the postering troops i. I'm sure that we're going to see much more of a military display in shan and later also in hong kong. Maybe trouble on where the large military show festivals visiting the harbour and helicopters coped flying up and i'm sure that you know the kind of do a bit of saber-rattling just a way to well part of part of it. I think this is a reasonable that from their side you know that they deal with all the convention season. Make sure all the resources are in place to be able to do with in the military commands cannot be embarrassed that ahead and taking action in some resources in the various locations where there is commotion emotions so i'm not worried about that. I think it is natural whether they actually will take military action and be involved in governance martial law. I don't expect that and i think that trying to move extremely careful to do that and i don't think they feel that they have to at this moment you know because we know him calm you have colonial powers for the police and the government i mean we had ferry outdated old laws at the colonial powers put into place and they dare they exist and started explore how they can use them. You know they've ever powerful so they. They don't need to bring the military that steph to support the please. I'm not inviting him to do that now. Inviting them to take different action because in trying to rule hung by fia. I think it's very closely for them and for the people in home komen but trying to rule rule by consensus and <hes> let there be more representative government here. Leave it to congressman cells. I'm sure that home run the city city for every prudently and we'll be very calculated to make sure that they make best use of the relationship with china and you know it makes sure that it works well ones ones that have an ability to choose their own leaders and they will do that. Those leaders will have to stand up and explain how they operate and how they're going to work with china where the economy is significantly dependent on business wise and so that they will do that and i can't see any reason why they wouldn't chinese people in general specifically. I really practical not emotional in the way they deal with. These issues very very practical. I've seen it for thirty. Five years is being here and i've seen it for thirty. Five years have to trust the club aw pulls zimmerman district councillor and c._e._o. Of designing hong kong speaking to monaco scurrying asu also as the rally yesterday was our hong kong bureau chief james bruce who joins me now on the line james first of all could you explain the scale and the overall mood of smart well the organizers. There's a saying they were about one point seven million people who gather day yesterday and it would be you know i wouldn't. I would appreciate that that's pretty close to that number. <hes> it felt felt like they were people everywhere <hes> but it's almost impossible to count. I'd given the weather yesterday. <hes> the the rain clouds opened opened up there was a a a thunderstorm and you really couldn't see in front of you because of <hes> because of the rain and because of all the umbrellas so i'm not sure how the <hes> they managed mystic count all that those people but it did feel like it was another massive turnouts <hes> i guess one of the <hes> the surprising things <hes> for me was that's you know even though we were standing in victoria park for goods <hes> two or three hours with most of that being rained upon the mood was very are you positive <hes> everyone was was smiling chatting friendly <hes> the the the people who are talking on the stage where you know they're making making jokes <hes> and so it was it was very positive mood. It was like <hes> hawking back to some of the earlier marches in june which saw you know. Millions of people take to the streets traits so <hes> it was a it was a very big marked contrast with the violence of of of ilya last week <hes> and <hes> hopefully it's a return to these peaceful demonstrations at the same time there are reports of the city bracing for the demonstration is to turn violence again. What are you hearing well. Ah this is this is not going to be the the final word on this issue. <hes> at the rally yesterday already announcing the the next few marches watches <hes> so it's going to continue for for some time yet and of course they're likely to be <hes> more clashes <hes> because you know yesterday. There wasn't many confrontations between protesters and police. I think both sides wanted to take a step back and try to keep a lid on its <hes> this weekend but but of course this issue is not going going to go away. The hong kong government housing responded. It hasn't <hes> said it's going to meet any of the <hes> the five two moms and actually on the basis of of what we said yesterday at the rally <hes> the protesters are adding to to what they want their calls yesterday for not only the chief executive carolina to step down but now they won't be just as secretary and the head of the police force so you know the longer the the hong kong government weights don't do anything the more the participant the demand and just finally james. What is the latest from china then we have seen segment of reports or join according demonstrators terrorists sent troops seem seemed to be ready and waiting at the border. Is there a fear showing accused move in well. I think that that fear has subsided <hes> this weekend <hes> of course in the interest of being fair and bonds we should mention that's on on saturday. There was also a huge protests <hes> or at least rally o- or march or gathering <hes> in favor of the government in support of the hong kong police force now <hes> that drew a large amount of people <hes> to <hes> you know fly the national flag and show their support for the government for carrie lam so <hes> it was it was a weekend of two different marches. <hes> i think the the buildup of on on the border <hes> i i am the drills that'd be mentioned. I think the the fear of that actually <hes> turning into some kind of <hes> you know seen the chinese army on the streets has subsided but there <hes> other kind of alarming stories we hear of <hes> of groups of of chinese mainland chinese men <hes> coming across the border the hong kong government the demands on the weekend that they intercepted some groups wearing the same kind of white that we saw in in a few weeks ago and wearing kind of <hes> band that they can use to identify themselves so worried that that groups <hes> independent private groups that won't want to militia but they there's a i i guess a risk that <hes> men coming to hong kong from the mainland and coming here to <hes> to to trouble. Thank you very much shame so that was monaco's is hong kong bureau chief. James chambers joining us here are multiple twenty four and then. Let's continue with today's newspapers. Joining me in the studio is frank langfitt n._p._r. Dallas london correspondent welcome to the program good to have you here so so frank. You were based in china following this case of hong kong for quite some. I'm so i am what is your take on. What's happening there now. Today's papers writing why. I think it was really interesting. <hes> one of the things you've seen in the papers today is that these protests in hong kong only of actually become internationalized and we saw protests in trafalgar square on saturday here in london i went there and talked to people and you had protests and counter. Protests ed mainland chinese coming in yelling at <hes> the hong kong protesters who were asking for democracy. The mainland protesters were exciting with the police and also saying this they saw this as a as a sovereignty issue a one china issue claiming that the hong kong protesters want <hes> want to split away from china and it actually there's a little bit of scuffles offals amend it got pretty heated and pretty bitter the one of the most interesting protests that happened around the world <hes>. I guess this was yesterday is in toronto. You had very very wealthy a young chinese driving their ferraris patriotic ferraris through the centre of toronto with chinese flags on it with no with no sense of irony goes in your experience and expertise foschi to look into the crystal ball. How do you think this situations evolve. Is there any way of finding some kind of solution to this. I it doesn't look like it now but i do want to say this. I think that the chinese government the absolute last resort is to put anything that looks like a chinese soldier or or even paramilitary police on the streets and they can try to wait out the protesters. The other thing is while there's been a lot of comparisons is tantamount square big differences. This is not an existential threat to the communist party taliban was they were worried about losing power. Hong kong is not gonna knock out the communist party in beijing quite the contrary so i think that they can wait for a long time. <hes> and i think this will be a sort of a long term struggle <hes> for them to get control of the protests and get control back of hong kong. We continue with your your other top stories of the day then let's talk about brexit for change in front of your sure so what <hes> this this broke yesterday of the times had a story about operation yellowhammer which basically is very embarrassing to the johnson government boris johnson's government here saying that essentially a nodule brexit at the the end of october which is what he seems to be pushing for is going to be a debacle two and a half day delays at the ports of calais to get trucks across to france <hes> talks of food and fuel shortages and also worst of all probably a hard border on the island of ireland out in today <hes> paper. We have mr gov michael gov <hes> in the cabinet saying hey this is just a this is just planning for the worst case and <hes> it's. It's an old document so basically he's saying nothing to see here to calm people down because was this was very embarrassing to the government. It sounds like it's hard to know what to believe at the moment well i. It is hard to know but let's remember. This is a government document. They're not saying they didn't write this and so oh. I think you know for instance i. I'm not i'm journalist. I'm not given to panic my wife said costco today loading up a bit because why not and there are other people who are doing the same. I think also also significant is that for for years. We've been hearing about the so called. Pro checked fear brexit u._s._a. That's people who don't want the u._k. To leave the e._u. Basic just it just worrying about something. That's not going to happen all these. All these warnings are unfounded but actually this is the government's own report. We're talking about now yeah and that's the difficulty in the other thing that boris johnson and his apparently saying is he feels that one of the ministers in his cabinet who left who's really a remainder has leaked this to the times to embarrass <hes> to embarrass his administration but the other thing is that we we don't we have not seen yet. We're not very far from possibly leaving with no deal from the european union. We haven't seen any sort of really clear contingency plan. Can we all live here. Everybody's worried about this. Government hasn't given clear answers. Well boris. Johnson is to visit berlin on wednesday to meet on gilmer. He's going to be in paris the following day to meet french president's manure mcrib. Are we expecting much from this goes. We are not because this is going nowhere. Don't boris johnson has said he wants them to draw the irish backstop which for our listeners around the world means. There's this requirement that the e u wants the united kingdom to stay inside accustomed arrangement to avoid a hard border on <hes> the island of ireland. <hes> boris johnson wants that dropped brussels has been saying we're not going to change this at all and so we don't expect actually any movement from brussels right now when continue with what you have from today's edition of the guardian then let's talk about donald trump. He'll donald trump. It has his own problems. He's worried about a recession session and <hes> the reason for this of course we saw last week. The inverted yield curve on u._s. Bonds which often is a harbinger of a recession here in the united it kingdom we had <hes> the second quarter was negative growth as it was in germany and so there's a lot of jitters and of course the china trade war which he hasn't wrapped up yet so he came out yesterday today and said <hes>. I don't see recession. We're doing tremendously well. Our consumers are tremendously rich. The usual stuff <hes> and what he's trying to do is signal to his voters is that he's going to continue to keep the economy going. But of course he does have significant percentage of his backers back him because the economy's doing well and he cut their taxes. Do you think you can actually continue what he's doing. Does he doesn't need to change something. When it comes to approach it you mean generally or with jared tariffs. I think i think the difficulty with tariffs is that it's it's a very blunt instrument and i think that right now xi jinping in beijing wants to wait out donald trump. He knows that he's worried about this. Xi jinping is not up for election. He doesn't have to face. He does have to be concerned about popular opinion but he doesn't face election the way trump does and i think he's going to wait <hes>. He's gonna try to trump out. The difficulty for trump is if this goes on further and we see the economy begin to weaken and weaken he may have after he may be the one who blinks at which in some ways wouldn't be a good thing because a lot of people actually are glad that trump is they see is standing up to china unless finished with today's edition addition of the new york times. You're looking at a colon piece by charles m. blow yeah. I like this one because i related to it. It says where went my empty nest best and any parent who has kids going off to college and in many cases in america and here in the united kingdom kids come back from college and instead of having a job necessarily going off and getting an an apartment. They actually come back home and charles blow was a single dad raising twin daughters and he devoted himself to them. He writes here that he never even took a vacation on his own and when they left for college he's now sort of gained this whole new life and now that they're coming back. He's kind of resentful. He's very honest about it and he says it it yeah. What does he say. Let me see here. He says <hes> it would be dishonest to say that their reappearance in their their rooms has not been jarring and and so he sort of he's sort of being honest parents saying you know it's good that they've gone off. I don't really miss them. That much and kinda look into getting my life back exactly well. It's quite quite common occurrence now that that's that's young young people after studies comeback own for a bit when that's right into fighting trump still find anything positive about this development. It's getting more common. I guess the only positive thing is that if you have a good relationship with your kids. It's nice to have them back for a while. I did this actually with my parents and it's funny. My my mom was just like charles blow. She didn't want me back and she actually was going to put in motion sensors in the house to serve almost prevent from being able to come in. I was sleeping in the basement at at night and so eventually that pushed me out. I was finally pushed out of the nest frank langfitt. Thank you very much for joining us here.

Hills against have been forty five a._m. Here in london. You're listening to the globalist this week. Markle's offend onto our gestapo sukkot spoke khalif pulitzer prize winning journalist robin given who works as a fashion critic for the washington post in this highlights from the latest edition of the stuck. We hear how fernando given about the big differences between fashion racing for daily newspapers and specialist magazines. There's a few things that are the different i mean. The first is that is audience that you're speaking to and you know with a a daily newspaper a general interest newspaper super you really speaking to a very broad audience that can range from people who are really interested in fashion and know quite a bit about it the two people who actually have a somewhat antagonistic relationship to fashion and so i think that sort of challenges you to write right about it in a way that is both knowledgeable for those who are really well versed in the subject but also make sure that you're writing isn't isn't off putting to those who don't really know that much you write brilliantly about how politicians where and you know you wrote already about some of the candidates candidates for the democrats next year he wrote about kamala harris. How important do you think is you know the way politicians dress us in the way they connect to the public. I think it's very important especially this election cycle at the stage because is right now. There's over twenty people vying for the democratic nomination. I mean no one other than the most die hard. Political follower can really keep the mall straight and so i think they have really short window in front of the public to make an impression to get a message across us and i think if they're smart about it they can use clothing to underscore their message or at at minimum they can use their clothing to give people a really sharp shorthand for understanding who they are. Who do you think you know from this. Those twenty candidates is doing very right especially issue. When it comes to fashion i would say that the ones that are particularly interesting to me and i think are using fashion in a way that allows them to stand apart certain way the mayor of south bend indiana pete buddha judge who you has sort of created this uniform on the campaign trail where he's just wearing sort of dress pants a white shirt and tie and i think bat is through his way of you know standing out it's sort of underscores that his youth but it's not so far afield old from the standard political uniform that you start thinking that the sky is really so far removed from so far out of the box that he's unrelatable. I think that elizabeth warren uses fashion and a really smart way. She's developed relate eight a kind of uniform which is black pants and bowl jocket bats. You know sort of got these sleeves that are about three quarters so it kind of looks like her sleeves. Sleeves are always rolled up like she's really ready to get down to work and it's a very sort of arrow dynamic style. She always looks berry uncovered and ready to move and just moves really i think easily and you know some of the candidates audits that i think are sort of on the farther end of the stage meaning that they don't really have that much support right now but but someone like the governor from washington jay inslee he is very much focused on the climate crisis and it's one of the early debates he wore a green tie to kind of drive home his emphasis on the environment and you know one of the things i like about your calling calling for the washington post. It's how honest they are. You know there was even this article that comes to mind about trump visit to the u._k. Were you know let's be frank. You know he didn't choose the right clothes but do you think for someone like trump and his supporters actually his bad use of clouds actually can end up helping him some way what's intriguing to me about trump. He theoretically has the resources to dress in as polished a manner as anyone could. He chooses not to do that and i think a lot of that goes to the way that he connects to his supporters. Which which is that he may brag about how much wealth he has but he doesn't look like the stereotypical you know super tailored expensively dressed wealthy guy i think his appearance allows him to relate more easily to you know working working class person but in somebody's i also think it can be a bit insulting because there's also this element of presumptive nece thought a working class person doesn't have an affinity for being well put together and and tailored alert and having their clothes fit them nicely. Well exactly rubbing. I it's interesting because fascist when it comes to politics is not only what the politicians -tations are wearing but every week you have those stories for example more recently researcher. Have you seen the t shirts. I think they they said. Macao was in macau not in china and all those controversies is the other type of fashion stories that you over at the washington post or do you also do the traditional you know. Milan peres catwalk shows covered the the runway show and perez and in new york predominantly you know and the other stories though i think are the ones is that really helps set our coverage apart. I mean to be honest. You know people are not coming to the washington post in order to you know get the full full slate of photographs from a particular designers collection. I think they're coming to us because they want to read about fashion in the broader context of culture and i think those stories are becoming even more important because fashions becoming so much more are global so many more people feel like they have a vested interest in it. Thanks to social media thanks to just sort of the democratization shen of fashion so i think there's so many more voices and so many more people that are listening to what the industry's doing and that's how the industry ends up you know in these really unfortunate situations whether it's dealing with the backlash after you know references references to block phase or whether it's you know managing to insult the inter continental asia thus will pulitzer prize winning journalist robin given learn in discussion with monaco's for an underdog ustasha. You're listening to the globalist hero monocle twenty four where we we hit sweet cylinder now and join the tens of thousands of students who head back to school today in the canton of zurich as from the facts that they returned to their desks much earlier than their neighbors elsewhere in europe visitors from afar might not something else that is rather unique during this monday morning rush hour as young as five or six steel make the journey to school on their own. No moms dads or nannies accompanying children to the school gates. No crush of cars shuttling groups of friends still high school. Come percents no pickups off to school either so we educator see making your way to school solo part of the learning process and are concerned that an influx of experts families from the u._s. u._k. Who liked to ship it their kids the classroom door east creating norse only a bad precedent for education but also looking up a road and tramps for more on this. We are joined by by our editor in chief tyler bray. He joins us this morning from somewhere in the cancer of zurich goodson morgan tyler buckingham market. It's them not <hes> the most beautiful day actually sort of feels a little bit like a back to school moment not one in the middle of august though it's <hes> it's raining. It's a little a bit chilly side. <hes> so all of the kids heading off to school indefinitely be probably using their autumn jumpers and find looks right now but as you said in the intro it's it's it's. It's a really interesting time of year. One which is also a little bit of a flashpoint market because of course we cover the cities around the world <hes> <hes> which have the highest quality of life there are winning city this year and no surprise that of course so many people want to move to the city <hes> it is a place laced with incredibly low unemployment also one where teachers are amongst the highest paid in the world <hes> as well not brings us to this flash point of education haitian in switzerland they firmly believe as you said that it is very important as a if you're as young as four or five that you learn how to take the tram. You're not waiting for a school bus. Learn how to use the the public infrastructure <hes> and and find your way from home to your classroom. Death is part the education and it should not come under the wing of a parent <hes> or reminder every single day of the week but at the same time you have this great influx of people who swifty are bringing bad habit with them <hes> and those bad habits are that of the helicopter parents or certainly people who've of course bringing up kids in cities where it is preceded a little bit more dangerous <hes> and perhaps as we know not dangerous what's so therefore for <hes> better to leave range rover at home <hes> and let your kid find their own way to the classroom. Why do we think it's so important that kids learn to go to school by themselves themselves without any help from anyone. What did they curious things about switzerland. We know this as a nation which is full of rules and you'll be told off if you if you put a put what out of line but the flip side of the coin is that also the the swiss really put a lot of store in personal responsibility as well so you need to learn the rules and the and the code etcetera and by the way on the school bus going by in the background <hes> but this is one of the key things that <hes> you're not nandita no way you're you're told where the boundaries are but if you choose to step out of those boundaries without your problem you'll have to pay the consequences and i think that's a little bit to start. I i think <hes> at preschool again. You've you learn how to use the tram and you learn to knock down to the platform edge. <hes> perhaps you have to learn not to <hes> talk to strangers all the other things that have been sort of coded within us as children and therefore you don't need parents or or a guardian. I'm hovering over your head. I think something you know in my mind about this contract that we have about personal responsibility and accountability in this country <hes> justice finally as as you mentioned there is a collision of cultures now. Thanks to expert families coming to america. We insist on actually taking their kids to school. How the education dealing with this issue of course there is a very simply and then we should probably say that there's there's a little bit of a divide because of course a lot of families come here. They don't put their kids in public education <hes> so they're they're in private schools <hes> and so of course you know dare is perhaps not as strict and of course. You're hang a lot of money to send your kid with school. Maybe you don't want to be told off by the parents but even then a lot of with five schools in and around the major cities are saying look we. We really would appreciate it if you certainly don't drive your kids to school if you want to take them on the train and maybe that's maybe that's okay but if you choose to go to a state school you're really told i mean the teachers. The principals are informing the parents you know well before i say back especially of course for people who are newcomers to the country <hes> that not at all the rules of the road <hes> and therefore <hes> you don't have a running a subtle surfaced moore chief tyler relate joining us from rome zurich.

Day 795: Trump claims victory after Mueller probe, but more investigations remain

"Tonight. Robert Muller's work is done. He submitted his report, but until we can see it. Both sides are left to debate a four page letter. That tells us how Trump's attorney general season tonight Trump defenders claiming the president's been cleared are going after the media even demanding apologies while others are offering a reminder of what else is out there. The investigations now underway still spooling out into the president is business family campaign at inauguration and still unsolved. What have we decided to do about Russia's involvement in our election? All of it is the eleventh hour gets underway on a Monday night. Bogan evening once again from our NBC news headquarters here in New York day, seven ninety five of the Trump administration. And there is a legal term for exactly what it is. We're witnessing right now. It's a mess. It is tempting to label this coverage of the Muller report. But it's not we haven't seen the Muller report. So this really is coverage of a letter that Bill bar rose the four page letter from the attorney general describing and interpreting what he read in the Miller report bar rights among other things, quote, the special counsel's investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the two thousand sixteen US presidential campaign. It's important to note that Muller did not draw a conclusion about whether or not the president obstructed Justice bar directly quoted Muller's report that said quote while this report does not. Conclude that the president committed a crime it also does not exonerate him bar went on to say that he and attorney general rod Rosenstein concluded quote, the evidence developed during the special counsel's investigation is not sufficient to establish that the president committed an obstruction of Justice offense, the president immediately seized on bar summary of Muller's report claiming complete and total exoneration. There was no collusion with Russia. That was no obstruction. And none whatsoever. And it was a complete and dawdle exoneration. It's a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest. It's a shame that you president has had to go through. This. Trump also addressed the Russia investigation, and whether or not the full mother Muller reports should be released at the White House. We're glad it's over. It's a one hundred percent the way it should have been. I wish you could have gone a lot sooner let quicker there are a lot of people out there that have done some very very evil things very bad things. I would say treasonous things against our country. We can never let this happen to another president again, I can tell you that I say it very strongly. Very few people, I know could have handled it we can never ever let this happen to another president again. General, but it wouldn't bother me at all up to the attorney general wouldn't bother middle. And now the Democrats bared down on their fight to release the mullahs report with deep secrets redacted. So we can all read it and many of them wanna talk to everyone involved here in B C news reporting that House Judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler of New York has contacted the Justice department to set a date for William bar to testify on the Miller report also today six democratic committee chairs including Nadler Elijah Cummings Adam shifts sent a letter to bar demanding that he submit Muller's full report to congress by April two the lawmakers told bar his summary was not sufficient for congress. Peter Baker of the New York Times writes that the president is quote emboldened and angry after bar, summary and adds this not indicted or not impeach. May not have been much of a bumper sticker in times past but in today's polarized political environment each side sees these issues through its own lens this as Maggie Haberman of the times as among those pointing out that even though Muller's investigation is complete a legal threat will continue to loom over Trump's presidency with federal and state investigations quote. Most of the investigations focus on President Trump has family business or a cadre of his advisors and associates. There are being conducted by officials from Los Angeles to Brooklyn with about half of them being run by the United States attorney's office in Manhattan, many legal analysts have said that the Manhattan office of the Justice department. The southern district of New York poses the real threat to the president. To use it March madness basketball analogy the court on which the southern district of New York is playing as longer and wider. Right. And we don't know everything. That's there. They have much more freedom much more room to roam than Muller did. And that if I were President Trump or one of his kids or somebody who worked in the Trump organization writing checks, so they could be sort of cash by stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal. I'd be worried right now, the New York I've been saying for months now is the more dangerous one for the president and his team because they have no restrictions on them. More has a restriction. It's Russia and Russia related items, and that's it. So the district has no restrictions at all on that note. Let's bring in our leadoff panel. For Monday night, Chuck Rosenberg, we just heard from him. Former US attorney former senior FBI official Jeremy bash former chief of staff at CI and Pentagon former chief counsel at house Intel and Barrett burger a former federal prosecutor with both the east. Eastern district of New York and the southern district of New York. Welcome to you, all Chuck, I note, your time working for and with Robert Muller, and I'm sorry that you've become something of a Muller whisperer around here. I also know that Marine Corps. Captain Muller is all about chain of command and sending this to the attorney general was in keeping with the chain of command. The question to you that may require conjecture conjecture. Why do you think Muller punted an effect? That's a hard question. He is a chain of command guy has well Bryan the federal regulations that govern the office of special counsel say very clearly that ultimately, it's the attorney general who decides what happens to the special counsels cases, it's crafted so that the special counsel has day to day independence. But it's the attorney general who decides why did he punt on the question Barrett? And I were talking about that before we came on your set. That's a hard thing to know. It might be because you just cannot charge sitting president. And so therefore perhaps, and this is a capital P, perhaps you therefore do not. You know, lay the stigma of uncharged conduct on that same president. But I really don't know. So Barrett to that point if that theory is correct that would be powerful wording for us all to read to what end if we go with the DOJ memo that the president can't be indicted. That's exactly right. And and that's sort of even more reason why the public deserves to see the entirety of the report because as we all know, there's much more to a story than just the conclusion certainly the various details the evidence that underlie that conclusion all of that is going to really be important as we try to figure out what exactly happened. And while it's it's useful. To know. What's the attorney general's ultimate conclusion was it certainly doesn't tell us. Why he reached that conclusion? And it doesn't tell us about these various obstructive acts or potentially obstructive acts that caused Muller to say that the president was not fully exonerated germy bash. I know. You spoke to one of our producers and wanted to make a point specifically on conspiracy. Brian, look, I think what the bar letter says is that Muller found that the Russians actually offered helped the Trump campaign, and we know, of course, if the Russians did interfere. So here's basically what I think Muller found that the Russians interfered they informed the Trump campaign that they were interfering. They said what they want in return, the Magnitsky act relieved sanctions relieved. And then in fact, they got exactly what they asked for in terms of very pro-putin pro-russia foreign policy all that Muller appears to have found with respect to conspiracy. Is that the Trump campaign didn't assist the Russians in their interference? But they didn't need the assistance of the Trump campaign to interfere the Russians did find on their own and the Trump campaign certainly benefited from it. So I think it's sort of a very narrow read upon which the Muller team appears to have said no laws were broken. But Germany you raise. What may be the issue at the crux? Of this. If and when we get to see the text again with a, you know, a secrets redacted, so no one gets exposed you may read it as an entirely different document than the sitting attorney general who is now out on something of a limb because we have seen his interpretation. That's right. And I think fundamentally what Bob Muller was looking at it. And I think what Bill bar was looking at was war federal criminal laws broken. But of course, this started as a counterintelligence investigation and national security investigation. And I think when this moves to face to face to being of course, congr- Congress's review of this matter, I think congress is gonna take a broader lens of broader aperture, they're going to look at was the foreign policy of the United States suborned subjugated to Russian foreign policy, and why did the president of the United States appear to have done that Barrett. I have to ask you about your old shop, and that is the southern district of New York, which for clarity. I keep calling in. The Justice Department's Manhattan bureau, it is much more than that and quite sprawling as no one needs to tell you. Does anything about what has just happened in the last twenty four hours change or diminish potential plans? The southern district might have. No, I actually don't think this impacts the southern districts investigation or the investigation of other prosecutors offices at all, and if you think about it, that's how it should be. We just because somebody didn't commit one crime doesn't mean they didn't commit of fully separate crime. So they're going to continue doing their investigation the same way that they have been this entire time. They're going to interview witnesses. They're going to look at evidence. I don't think that whatever conclusions. The special counsel's office reached on the very limited issues that they were looking at we'll have any impact on the Manhattan, prosecutors jerk. There's no graceful way to ask this members of the resistance today have been pretty bummed out all day thinking that they they thought the president was going to be in greater legal peril. We heard from you earlier in the. Broadcast. Do you still stand by the point you were making about the latitude and the power of the southern district? I do and Berit news at office better than I know what by reputation, but they have a broader mandate they get to look at all sorts of conduct financial fraud. Trump organization Trump inaugural committee. Trump foundation in ways that Bob Muller simply could not because his remit was narrow it was Russian interference in the twenty sixteen election. And whether or not anybody in the Trump campaign conspired with those Russians so I think, and I've been saying this for a while and occasionally I'm right that the really important work is going to be going on in Manhattan from here forward. And I think Barrett is spot on nothing that happened with respect to the Muller and investigation will undermine that work in the southern district of New York and Barrett year-old old shop the southern district has already labeled the president individual one at at the Cohen sentencing. We learned the crimes were directed by individual one. Right. So this is often what we call. Either speaking indictment or times where you can speak in court, three your papers. So the southern district of New York does not have the same mandate as Muller to prepare a report that they're going to submit to congress or to submit to the attorney general, but this is oftentimes how you hear them speaking through the court papers through the filings and labeling. Is individual one is about as powerful as you can get from prosecutor's office like that now Jeremy to you a dual question, what do you expect in terms of peril from congress for this president and the same question to you about the potential peril that exists at the southern district of New York. Look, I think Brian ultimately, congress will engage in a fairly wide ranging set of investigative actions. I think they were prepared to do that before the mullahs report as far as the southern district of New York. I think it obviously will look at the finances of the Trump organization, which is of course, fundamentally would Donald Trump said was a red line. And I want to loop back one more time to the to the bar letter. Because Brian I think it's also important to note that the main conclusion that Bill bar reached in that letter that four page letter was basically the same conclusion he reached in his audition memo, and I've gone back and read this nineteen page memo. He wrote before he was nominated to be attorney general, and he has this line. It's really important. He says the constitution places. No limit. On the president's authority to act on matters, which concern him or his own conduct. Really? No, limit the constitution places. Absolutely. No limit on the president to do anything. I mean, that's the theory of Bill bars case, and that's the theory. We saw echoed in this four-page summary, the no no less a legal mind than Neo cock ya'll. Jeremy has branded that memo cookie. It was not as far as we know. Solicited. It came in over the transom. It was widely distributed in Washington and cynics look at it and say, yeah, it was his job application to be Donald Trump's attorney general. That's right. And again, the legal conclusions are basically the same conclusions that he landed on the four page memo the four page memo to Chuck's point the attorney general has responsibility for making it prosecution or no prosecution decision with the special counsel case. But actually, they finish it on one further. He said, I'm basically exonerating the president. I've looked at the evidence. I've looked at the law, and I conclude he did nothing wrong. Well, first of all that's not his role. Second substantively. That's exactly what he concluded in one thousand nine page memo that president can't be guilty of corrupt intent because all corrupt intent when you're president is presidential intent and presidential intent going to Bill bar is perfectly constitutional. It's the same exact argument and beer at burger if you if I gave you one question to ask Robert Muller as unfair question is that may be what do you think it would be? I guess the one question would be do you think that this is a leader who is fit to lead our country right now based on everything that you've learned based on all the. Evidence that you've had a chance to to see do you think this person should be leading us fool around in your choice of one question to Robert Muller chuxing question to you? And I'd add this. How do you think do you think he's satisfied with the depiction of him? This is not a guy who is obsessed with his public depiction. But do you think if he could hear and see all of this and the media he would think it's unfair? I don't think Bob Muller paid attention to the praise and I don't think he's going to pay attention to the criticism. Bob Muller is fundamentally marine and a prosecutor, and this I am sure from his perspective is a tour of duty. That has now ended I can tell you that he in my experience working with them working for him working by him has always tried to do what he thinks is right that type of person, by the way is not well understood by the political types, he's not motivated by personal gain. He's not motivated by publicity. He's motive. Baited by doing what's right? And I don't think he's really going to pay attention to us. You have told me that he is known to ask on Iraq. Kely to of employees. What have you done for your country today? What have you done for your country today? And that's sometimes when you get a note on your chair saying where are you at five thirty A AM? Sorry, just not a morning person. That sounds funny. Chuck Rosenberg, Jeremy bash Barrett. Burger can't think of a better panel to start us off on this Monday night. Appreciate it very much and coming up for us. The Trump White House on the offensive now. Now that Robert Muller has wrapped up his work tonight. What they are claiming this four page letter means and later the members of congress in both parties, we'll have a few questions about this Muller report starting with when do we get to see it? We have to full it surprise winning journalist standing by to join us as the eleventh hour is just getting underway on a Monday night. Hi, it's Katy Tur want to keep up with MSNBC while you're on the go subscribe to the MSNBC daily newsletter. You'll get the best of what you've missed or in this unprecedented. Era of news, text MSNBC, two six six eight six six to subscribe. She new reporting from the Washington Post tonight reveals President Trump is planning to use the apparent conclusion of Robert Muller's reports to attack his foes real and perceived one of our next guests. Ashley Parker reports. Quote, all signs indicate a Trump operation seeking vengeance. And accountability from critics it says maligned the president over the investigation into whether his campaign or associates conspired with Russia to interfere in the twenty sixteen presidential election and adviser who talked to the president said Trump has an appetite to see his critics investigated. Well, with us for more tonight to top reporters from the Washington Post, the aforementioned Ashley Parker Pulitzer prize winning White House reporter and Philip Rucker Pulitzer prize winning White House bureau chief good evening and welcome to you both Ashley indeed I watched between two and three hours of Fox News and. Prime-time tonight so much of it centered right at the news media demand for apologies. Kind of re-litigating of all the points that have been made over two years talk a bit more about the president potentially using this as a political weapon recognizing again. We're all reacting to a four page letter thus far. Well, it's a political weapon in the eyes of the president and his allies in a couple of ways number one as they plan to use it heading into twenty twenty and they're going to say that for two years now, the president has been saying, no collusion. No collusion. This is a witch hunt. And according to this summary of Muller's report, that's what they found that there was no collusion. So for any future investigation for any ongoing investigation. And there are some in congress is about to launch a number of investigations and for even any future bad behavior by the president potentially. They're just going to point to Muller's finding. Or what they now believe his findings to be insa-? We told you this was a witch hunt. And now, we're telling you this new thing as a witch hunt. And now, you have reason to believe us and Phil Rucker to your reporting on the extent to which the president is newly emboldened. Brian. It's just a huge political victory for the president right now. And he feels emboldened and empowered and we're going to see him try to get on the offensive here. He's planning to go tomorrow up to Capitol Hill to take victory lap. But with a lunch with the Senate Republicans there and then Thursday, he'll be heading out to Michigan for a campaign rally where we can expect he'll be talking a lot about this. And he's not a president who's going to be pleased with how this turned out and focus on governing bipartisanship, rather, he seeking revenge. He's seeking retaliation. He's naming his enemies. We saw him in the Oval Office today saying that there are people who did evil things to him into the country. They're they're acts were in fact in his view treasonous. So he's not going to let this go, and it's going to be digging in for some time trying to seek seek out recourse of Ashley in the interim if. In fact, the newspaper up here in New York was right in their headline today that a cloud has been lifted from the Trump presidency will the Trump presidency now see an opening to push an agenda your reporting would certainly indicate now for now. Thank you very much. They're very much focused on the people who've done them wrong. That's right. It's funny. There was some talk among White House officials before we got the summary on Sunday saying look if this report is as we believe it to be good for the president. We want to move on. We want to turn the page. We want to focus on the agenda. But the truth is is much even conversation today. They mentioned the president's trade policy and other agenda items. What they want to do is hold people accountable and is Phil said seek vengeance. They are already going through. They're blaming the media broadly, and they're going through and they are finding specific statements from democratic lawmakers so far of them accusing the president of collusion of. Going out. And what it now looks like getting ahead of their skis. And they are putting those in memos. They are calling as you saw Kellyanne Conway one of the president's senior advisors calling on Adam Schiff to resign. And they're going to use this to hold all of these people accountable, and they are not going to let them forget it. We didn't see the president turning to a new infrastructure plan. For instance, what we saw was called for his enemies his rivals. His critics to pay a price and Phil you mentioned Michigan. The president is going to Jerry Ford's old congressional district a deep red spot on the map. Do you expect him to kind of relitigate the last two years and report, obviously, the highlights as he sees them of the four-page letter. I mean, Brian there's nothing President Trump loves more than re-litigating the past especially when he thinks he got the upper hand. So yes, I n -ticipant hilt he'll talk about some of this at that rally on Thursday and one thing that's important. Keep in mind. I think it's he's not out of the woods yet. Eventually, we don't know when it will be eventually we expect that the public will be able to see a good deal of this molar report. And it could in fact contain very damaging information about President Trump even though he was not found to have done any criminal wrongdoing. And part of what President Trump is doing right now is taking the summary conclusions in that Bill bar letter. As a headline for him to try to just say over and over and over again exoneration, no collusion. No, obstruction and blanket over any details inoculate himself from what could eventually come out in a report and also what could be coming out of the seven district of New York. And that investigation as well as the investigations on Capitol Hill after another day of great deadline journalism or thanks to both. Ashley Parker and Philip Rucker. Thank you both for coming on tonight in helping us out with this story and coming up reaction from the Kremlin to the Muller investigation. Ending and the confirmed counter-terror intelligence threats that have not gone away. Welcome back investigating Russian interference in our presidential election was the main directive of the special counsel's investigation proof of its existence is something Robert Muller apparently made very clear in his report. We'll let you know when we see it. According to the attorney general bar quote. The report outlines the Russian effort to influence the election and documents crock documents crimes committed by persons associated with the Russian government in connection to those efforts despite those findings the Kremlin is acting as if vindicated today and doubling down on its denials, the New York Times reporting, quote, there was crowing in Russia on Monday that the special counsel's investigation did not find coordination between Moscow and the Trump campaign and twenty sixteen. A Kremlin spokesman told. Russian state TV quote, even the brief information specified in the summary from the mullahs report has no basis and added it is difficult to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if it's not there. Wow. With us to talk about it. Michael McFaul, the former US ambassador to Russia and Frank Figliuzzi. Former FBI assistant director for counter intelligence who in the past has worked for Robert Muller and Frank point of personal privilege. I'd like to go with you first to hear you out on Bob Muller, y you think he punted on this central point. But also, please follow up with the counter intelligence part of this investigation. The Muller report that we haven't been able to see it. Certainly brian. So I'm as perplexed and puzzled as the guests you had on earlier, but knowing Bob Muller and how he works. There's a couple of possibilities here. There's probably more than a couple possibilities. But one of them is that he had a strategy that was aimed at giving congress the opportunity to take care of business because he may have firmly believed that it was not his province to do. So with regard to a president and regard to shaky call on a criminal matter. The other is that somehow he made it crystal clear to the attorney general that he wanted to do something or had a strategy. But the attorney general took that and turned it into the summary. We now have and I think we none of us will know really what was going on in less. Bob Muller testifies on the hill. And we see the entire unvarnished report. Speaking of the entire unvarnished report. I think the Russians are celebrating and making a little bit too early. Because I predict that if we get to see a declassify. Fide report for Muller. We're going to see strong evidence pointing right to the Kremlin, and even perhaps to Putin himself as in directing the assistance the interference with the campaign, the hacking the social media propaganda. I think that's going to be a fascinating counterintelligence story that we need to hear and more importantly, Brian the Senate and a house need to hear because the worst thing. One of the worst things that could happen from a fallout and outcomes from this summary, and the ultimate report would be for people to claim that this is all over, and we can go home. Now, when in fact, what we found for this inquiries that the Russians are targeting us. They're still doing it today, and we're about to head into another presidential election ambassador. Indeed, you get to watch Russian media as someone who understands the language. So you're probably picking up on things were missing. What can you add to what Frank said and do you? Concur with him that it's probably premature. Well, Bryan with respect to the news today at a Moscow. Yeah, they're elated especially commentators close to the Kremlin. This was all much ado about nothing and they're skipping that part in the bar letter. That says that they were indicted, and let's remember we already know a lot from two indictments from Robert Muller about what the Russians did particularly what the Russian military intelligence officers did in terms of stealing data, and then publicizing it weaponising it, and we know what the internet research agency did because of then tastic indictment that Bob Muller. Also put out where they were putting propaganda onto our platforms. I hope we'll learn about other operations. What did Russia today? Do what did split Nick do what about those alleged twenty one states where we saw Russian activity on our electoral infrastructure right before election day. These are all questions that I hope will also be answered once we get to see the final report ambassador. How? How would we be treating them today for that matter were these normal times in our relationship? What is you know, we'd been on this? We've been talking about this for a long time because somebody's been shouting collusion. Very loudly for the last two years, we've been stuck we have not talked about this in terms of national security. We didn't have a bipartisan commission like we did after we are tacked on September eleventh to not only discuss in detail what the Russians did. And I'm still hoping that the mullahs report will provide more details on that. But we haven't even started the conversation about what needs to be done to prevent it from happening in twenty twenty. So what do the social media platform companies need to do to reduce amplification? What do we need to do to enhance cybersecurity in our campaigns, and in our electoral infrastructure, and how do we deal with making sure that Russians don't buy ads to influence voters? All of those are big public. Policy questions, and we have only begun to talk about them that is two years lost in my opinion, and Frank this is your world and your life's work. How concerned are you that we've allowed a giant backslide, and we have not kept up with a threat that's more than going to keep knocking at our door. It's in our house already. I'm deeply concerned about the next election cycle because the evidence is already there not only by the way from Russia, but that other nation states and actors may attempt to also do what they think is in their best interest. And here's why the Senate and house need to pay real attention and the White House as well. This may have gone their way this time, but the goal of the Russian government and intelligence services, first and foremost is to split us and caused disarray and chaos so the next election cycle, if they choose to back another candidate from another party, it it will will be they'll be screaming bloody murder in the Senate and from the White House, but they need to understand. It's their time. That's coming. And that's why everyone needs to pay attention and demand action on securing our next election. Well, we hope everyone is listening to a point like that Frankfort Lucy. Our thanks Mike McFaul who gets to go some. Where in Palm Springs after this? You've got it. The best of all three of us. I think gentlemen, thank you both and coming up are we about to enter the season of hearings in Washington is this only just the start a former house member and former Republican is here with us NEXT ON WHAT to expect from both sides of the aisle. That would say he's acting in a way that's inconsistent with the best practice. It would seem to me that having received the information in the way that he did from Bob Muller that attorney general bar should've taken that information, and then packaged it in the appropriate form and sent it to the house for consideration. That right there is likely something William bar. We'll have to address when he next appears on Capitol Hill, we reported earlier that House Judiciary committee chairman Jerry Nadler has contacted the DOJ to set a date for the attorney general to testify on special counsel. Robert Muller's Russia report that rolls off the tongue bar is already scheduled to testify before congress on April ninth. But that's something else. That's a house appropriations committee hearing, the Democrats, of course, are going to seek to question him there. Nonetheless with us tonight. David jolly, a former Republican member of congress from the state of Florida who has since left the party and a point of order hear congressman I woke up to social media this morning, and I saw photos of you and a new member of the jolly family you guys had a baby on Saturday. What in God's name are you doing on basic cable tonight? Or did we get you out of the house? I'm planning on being up all night tonight. We brought little Carolina Claire home. So I've got the late shift. I'm starting with you Brian. Well, we welcome her to the world, and our congratulations and best wishes to you and your wife at some point when she's old enough show. Learn how to pronounce Robert Muller, which is the subject of our interview tonight. Do you think congress will be successful? Do you think we will see Robert Muller raise his right hand in a public hearing and swear in to be questioned? You know? I look I think there's a possibility it would be very negotiated. The reality is there will be highly classified information in the Mola report. I think Democrats are right to demand that bar testify about the conclusions. He drew, and I think they're right to demand that the full report be given to congress and as much released as possible, but we do know there will be highly classified information, and if we do here for molar, I think it would be under negotiated terms negotiated topics. This could be a really dicey period. We have coming up here as I said the top of the broadcast. What folks are arguing about is not the Muller report? It's a four page letter. Do you think the Democrats especially are going to have message discipline in this period? Where what we don't know exceeds. What we do. I think if you look at the midterms, and frankly a lot of credit should be given to the top to their top leader Nancy Pelosi, we likely will see some message discipline. It is important to fight for trans. Parents. He did demand answers from Bill bar about his conclusions. How he drew those conclusions? But I don't think they need to cross the line and begin to question the report itself Bob Muller's findings. The reality is Bob is integrity as strong tonight as it was throughout the past two years. I do think Democrats have other areas of traditional oversight. We will see investigations into law violations. Some real questions about the president's taxes. We will see questions of security clearances. But if you look at the midterms the midterms, we're not one by Democrats on the Russia investigation and neither will twenty twenty. There are stark policy contrast tonight between the two major parties just as there were in the midterms in November of two thousand eighteen as you know. Well, this president says very little by accident. And so when we heard him today say pointedly twice no president should have to go through this some folks theorized, maybe he's looking at a change in special counsel rules down the road. Some folks theorize maybe that's a glancing blow toward the subject of pardons or executive privilege down the road. Did any of that strike you as you watched? I look I think that's giving the president a lot of credit for competency, truly has an exhibited these last two years when it comes to his messaging around this investigation. The president has suggested he's been. Exonerated. He has not we know that there are some vindication tonight and history will recall, that's vindication. But nothing in the Mola report exonerates his behavior at Helsinki nothing. Exonerates his behavior misleading the American people about the time line around the Trump Tower Moscow negotiations about the topics discussed in the New York meeting nothing exonerate him about southern district of New York matters as you discussed earlier, but there is some vindication. And this is where it is important. I think for Democrats to accept a bit of that vindication and move to talk about this president and policy terms. This is a president who's immigration policies have continued to put kids in cages he's offered healthcare repeal without replace a tax plan that favors corporations not individuals. Democrats have plenty to run on in twenty twenty congressman David jolly taking time out from his sleep deprivation program to talk to us again, great good wishes to you and your wife. And your new daughter and coming up for our audience tonight. One of the president's most outspoken critics in a legal battle of his own. Today, we announced criminal extortion charges against Michael avenue. Dotty the charges are based on avenue de scheme to extract more than twenty million dollars in payments from a public company by threatening to use his ability to garner publicity to inflict financial and reputational harm on the competent by engaging in the conduct legend, the complaint avenue was not acting as an attorney a suit and tie doesn't mask. The fact that at its core. This was an old fashioned shakedown think about this. That's the US attorney for the southern district of New York. This news was stunning even more. So when you remember that Michael avenue, recently traveled to Iowa and New Hampshire when he was exploring a run for president tonight. Michael avenue, the lawyer who roared to public attention while representing a porn star and a suit against the president was arrested. Today in New York, he's facing felony charges in two separate coast to coast federal cases, the southern district of New York of all places has charged him with attempting to extort over twenty million dollars from Nike in just the recent weeks. He's accused of demanding the cash by threatening to damage the company's image and reputation, he even previewed it on Twitter this afternoon announcing we will be holding a press conference to disclose a major high school college basketball scandal perpetrated by Nike that we have uncovered. According to reports just minutes later, he was arrested while meeting with lawyers representing Nike avenue de appeared briefly in court in New York this evening, he was released on three hundred thousand dollars bond. He did not enter a plea, but said this on his own behalf. I am highly competent that when all of the evidence is lay bare in connection with these cases when it is all known when do process occurs that I will be fully exonerated and Justice will be done as the man on TV says, but wait there's more his alleged co conspirator in the New York case is celebrity lawyer. Mark Garrett goes and tonight CNN has severed its relationship with Mark Garriga's. Meanwhile, prosecutors in California are accusing Evans of embezzling money from a client to play for pay for his own expenses. He is also charged with Bank fraud for using false tax returns to obtain over four million dollars in loans, another break for tonight and coming up a big name in Washington breaks, his silence about something a lot of people wish they had no. Known a week ago that when we come back. Last thing before we go tonight, if you're old enough to remember last week, then you remember a simpler time before the mullahs report had been handed in before the bar letter said everyone's hair on fire last week for a time. The big story you'll recall was Donald Trump's withering attack on a straight up American hero. Former Senator former prisoner of war. John mccain. The president was bothered by John McCain for years just days ago, he renewed his attack and at an event at a military contractor and Ohio before mostly silent crowd. He detailed. What angered him so much about John McCain? He said he blamed McCain for handing over that colorful dossier to the FBI. John McCain received the. Fake in phony dossier. Do you hear about the dossier? And John McCain got it. He got it. And what did he do didn't call me? He turned it over to the FBI hoping to put me in jeopardy. I endorsed him at his request. And I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted which has president I had to approve. I don't care about this. I didn't get thank you. That's okay. We sent him on the way. But I wasn't a fan of John McCain that was the president on Wednesday. This is Lindsay Graham in conversation with CNN today. And we quote, I told the president it was not John McCain. I know because John McCain showed me the dossier, and I told him the only thing I knew to do with it. It could be a bunch of garbage. It could be true. Who knows turn it over to somebody whose job it is to find these things out and John McCain acted appropriately. John McCain did not give it to anybody in the press. He talked to me just as soon as he got it. And he turned it over to the FBI. And that's exactly what he should have done some background here. Lindsey Graham has always described John McCain as one of his closest friends in the world. In fact, they traveled the world together on congressional trips and along with Joe Lieberman. The three of them were known. For years on the hill as the three amigos. This means that Lindsey Graham knew all of this while the president was attacking his good friend John McCain, and while McCain's family members were being forced to hear it all and react to it. Now, we learn that dossier that the president traces so many of his problems back to it was Graham's idea to turn that over to the feds. Not John McCain.
