"I'm Ari Shapiro The vast majority of employers had planned to bring most workers back to the office around the new year Then oh Macron That new coronavirus variant is starting to crop up across the U.S. and NPR consumer health correspondent Yuki Noguchi joins us to explain how employers are reacting Yuki what are you seeing Well you know not much is known yet about the risks this variant poses its early days So employers are watching and waiting to see how big a threat it is before committing to big policy changes But of course Omar Kron is driving a stake in many holiday party plans It was already dicey because cases of the previous delta variant were also on the rise Johnny Taylor the CEO of the society for human resource management says they get lots of calls asking this Do you think it would be wise to cancel holiday parties to gatherings Because we don't know what we don't know So we are seeing and trend toward employers saying you know what It's probably not the best idea given that we don't know None of us want to be known as the big spread or event of the year And this was supposed to be Ari a comeback year for the office holiday party and the parties were also supposed to be kind of like an unofficial kick-off to the broader return to work office plans The vast majority of employers with remote workers were planning to bring them back as you mentioned to the workplace around the new year So where do those plans stand now in light of all the uncertainty you're describing Yeah so over 90% of employers have at least partially reopened their workplaces And those people are not being sent home because it's too early to know what the threat is But about a third of employers still have at least some people working remotely and for them a return to office has become kind of an open ended question with an open ended date You know if you think back delta emerged and is now the dominant variant Now we're talking about And there will be more Greek letter variants to come So the reality of that cycle is sinking in Jeff love insurance is a population health leader at consultancy Willis towers Watson and says this holding pattern could become our new normal The longer this goes on the more likely some of the changes that employers have made in reaction to the pandemic will become permanent changes to the workplace You know Yuki one unknown here is how effective the vaccines are against the amaron variant Is this prompting employers to mandate vaccination Yes although a minority have done so so far and many others are of course waiting for the courts to weigh in That's because the Biden administration's plan to require vaccination among employers with a hundred or more workers is being challenged so employers have to wait for the legal resolution on that But actually it does seem that with each new variant and each new wave of cases support for employer vaccine and its increases Johnny Taylor at the human resources group told me he saw that with Delta Prior to that search the vast majority of American workers the group surveyed were opposed to employers requiring shots and now that's changed We have seen that tied turn like monumentally and let me tell you when it really did was Delta But when Delta came down and we started seeing the spikes again and places started closing again and people started losing their mobility again employees started saying mandated Demand for vaccines is high again And the more people are vaccinated of course the fewer variants and the greater overall immunity And that's when it really becomes safer to work together in person again Thank you Thank you Ari In recent decades the government has paid tens of thousands of people to leave their flood prone homes The homes are torn down And what remains is empty land open to floodwaters This is something more and more cities may need to do as a warming climate fuels rising seas and intense rain But as Sam turkin of member station W HRO in Norfolk reports fixing one problem can create another for those left behind Walter Murray is proud to live in the salters creek area of Newport News Virginia He's been here for over 5 decades It's a real portion for me neighborhood everybody Hello they always have a good word to say something like that This is a predominantly black area which some rental homes others passed down through family Marie takes walks through the neighborhood keeps in touch with families around him But his attitude sours when he talks about the creek that runs through part of the area Surrounding it is a swampy thicket Flocks of tall wild grasses overgrown shrubs And Dan all of this mosquitos and stuff come from here A stagnant water Mac What do you think it smells like It's like a fishy smell right Yeah but no fish in the past From where we're standing the marsh stretches on as far as you can see It's peaceful But for Marie it's weighing down the neighborhood's value.
Fresh update on "shapiro" discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show
"You know it disrupts relationships. I knew that going in, but there's a time of conversation of explanation. I don't know that every relationship needed to be healed, but I think we've been communicating effectively. I probably I would say where we are now has nothing to do with membership transition. Other issues. You know what? There's uncertainty in our world in some will say that is a reason why we can't expand. There's name in his life. There's congressional interest. There's membership movement. But if you go back through history, when we made changes to the BCS, there were conference membership changes, Big E to the ACC in the early 2000s. 2011, 12, 13, 14, right in the midst of discussing the move from two to four. There were conference membership changes. When Mark Emmett took over the NCA, this is not about Mark, but every month we had these headline stories of fiesta bowl problems. We were dealing with Cam Newton, Nevin Shapiro at.
Fresh update on "shapiro" discussed on Fat Mascara
"Right guys, we're gonna kick this off with makeup and things, tools, all that good stuff. All right, we have a pick from Christopher buckle, ardell lashes. Now let me tell you arta lashes are huge hit with all of the makeup artists that we shouldn't say all of them. But okay, a lot of them. Patrick ta, Rachel Goodwin, Luke Henderson, Mario D, I'm just going to call Mario D, because I always mess up his name but make up by Mario. Vicky sigh from tatcha. But let's get to Christopher. Christopher loves the individuals and I have to tell you, I don't use these lashes because I kind of like mess them up all the time. Jen, do you use fake lashes? The only times that I've put on fake lashes, I have to do the individuals. If I have to do a strip or like the wispies, I know Luke Henderson likes the wispies, which are like the little strips, and then there's the full strip. And then but the real makeup artist likes the individuals, which would lead you to believe that's actually harder to put on because that's like the makeup artist D one. But I think those are so much easier because you could just dot them in that little bit of glue. It gets tacky. That's the trick, too. It has to be tacky, not wet, and then I can I've done them on the outer corners. You know what I might do? I might actually now that we have the time, so to speak. I might get the individuals because they can't be that hard if so many people use them. Christopher loves them. And you know I love Christopher. He says they're soft, they're natural looking. He says that they really build up the lash line in a way that's undetectable. And he says, he's so funny. I'm not going to be as funny as him, to try to tell a joke that somebody told you, and that's never as funny. But he's like, it doesn't look like you're on the way to RuPaul's Drag Race audition. But I know also Daniel Martin used the individuals on me and my wedding. So he also used them on Meghan Markle at her wedding, which if we could all remember back to that time was what, a week and a half after you got married? It was a few weeks after yeah. So let's just say he was practicing on you for Meghan and he was using the ardell lashes too. Which, by the way, are really cheap. They're under 5 bucks for the wispies, sets of individuals, such a good drugstore by. He used them at my mom, too. Oh, good to know. Also great for moms. Great for mature ladies. Yes, very good for a tour ladies. Keep it on the lash topic because obviously it's fat mascara. Let's talk about mascara. All right, what do we got? There are two brands that come up again and again. The first mascara that if I hear it one more time, like honestly, drink every time you hear us say L'oreal voluminous mascara. The Carbon Black shade is the one that people keep mentioning over and over. It was a drag queen Bianca Del Rio's favorite editor and writer bea Shapiro again Daniel Martin likes this one, Mario D, archa moorjani, the influencer, who else, Jeff, I'm not even remembering them all. Everybody loves this mascara. Emily Kate Warren, makeup artist. Yeah, it's a goodie. And you're a fan of this personally, right? I love this one. I remember discovering this one is one of the first mascaras I used and it's one of the few that I can always whip out of my pocket and know that it's going to deliver. It's not a trendy mascara. I spoke to Linda wells about this recently, and she was like, the packaging is not glamorous, but it delivers. It's very juicy, has a great dry down. And it also separates too. I know that Daniel Martin said that to us, we checked back in with him recently. And he says, there's volume, but then also separation, which I think is so important because usually with a volumizing mascara, it could get really clumpy and what I love about voluminous is that you still have that volume, but it's sort of like fanned out, if you will. Totally. Now when we talk about mascaras with people and I feel like even when you just talk to beauty girls and beauty boys about mascara, one of the cliche lines that comes up is you don't need an expensive mascara. And I really do believe that's true. And that's no disrespect to some of our friends at the brands that make beautiful luxurious mascaras. You can get a great expensive mascara, but you can absolutely get a great budget mascara. One of the brands I think knocks out of the park almost every single time is Maybelline. Maybelline, that is their blue chip product. They do great budget mascaras. But there were budget sounds so down market. I just made like affordable. Workhorse, miscarriage. It expensive. Inexpensive. Cheap and chic. Michelle Lee, who definitely knows a thing or two about beauty, she's the editor in chief of allure. If you're listening to this podcast, I'm sure you know who she is. I'm sure you may even follow her on Instagram. She's always testing up products. She mentioned on our show earlier around this time last year. She mentioned the Maybelline falsies, waterproof, mascara. Now, unfortunately, Maybelline discontinued that product. Now, there are always bringing new mascaras and discontinuing them because they're always like bringing new ones in and whipping them around and trying out a new formula. This is like what they do. They have another formula that she loves equally called the total temptation. Waterproof mascara. She says she has very short, straight lashes. Her trick, if you have short straight lashes like her, is to buy a waterproof mascara, because it really locks in the formula. It won't slide off. It holds a curl better than other formulas. Oh, nice. Yeah, it's not just for people who have swim practice or cry a lot. It's for people that really need to hold that curl. I need waterproof mascara this week, Jess. It's not just for watching beaches, okay? It's true. So she likes total temptation, but I'm going back through 200 episodes, right? We had some other fans. Aaron Parsons loves this. Fiona styles likes lash discovery that Maybelline mascara with.
Fresh update on "shapiro" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Hey everybody, welcome to this episode of the Charlie Kirk show with us today is the name and a voice you will recognize and that is the founder of the wonderful company. Papa John's with us today is John Schneider. I say that right schnader? Schnatter? Well, there you go. It's close. We're all within the same region. Thank you for joining us today. Been an admirer of your company for quite some time. And I look forward to diving into it. So I guess the first question is a lot of our audience remembered some drama or controversy regarding your departure from Papa John's walk us through what happened there and kind of somehow it ties to some of the trends we're seeing in our country still today. Well, I think you go back to it started in the earnings call back in November 17 where I criticized leadership Roger Goodell in particular about not solving the situation to the owners and players satisfaction. And that roger didn't like us calling him out, telling him to get his act together and fix the problem. So he had a friend that actually coincidentally owned agency that was representing Papa John's a gentleman named Casey Washington, Casey was referred to roger as his big brother. Roger used to watch Casey's kids. So Roger Goodell that use Casey Washington as kind of one of his hitman as pronus to kind of paint a face false narrative in a false light on maybe in a racist on something that I really didn't say. Yeah, and so then I remember the headlines after that and we're no fans of Goodell here. Trust me. So you're a hero in our book. And they said that you said a racial pejorative, which you didn't say, you were using it in a different context. And then there was all of this kind of backlash that ensued, but then you've come out recently and said, you were set up by other members of your board. Is that right? Well, one of the board was actively or passively complicit, it's unequivocal that laundry service. The agency that we paid millions of dollars to enhance the reputation of not only the brand but myself, maliciously tried to get me to say something that could hurt me and set me up. The board of directors of Papa John's, whether they were weak, they panicked, they couldn't take the heat, didn't do a proper investigation. Violated Delaware law, and over overreacted and a tremendous damage to the board to the franchisees to the suppliers and to the company, but not following proper protocol. So Goodell was the puppet leader here. Washington, who owned laundry service, his CEO, Jason Stein, who is the CEO of laundry service. They were kind of the cronies. They were the puppets to do the dirty work and unfortunately at the time I had a very weak board. They went star only when star on the situation in the overreacted and did a tremendous amount of damage to the employees and to the franchisees. Yeah, and so then you resigned. Do you regret resigning when this coup was kind of posed in front of you? Well, I resigned as the chairman of help the board out settle the situation down. One of the directors. That thank God you did what you did because you saved the company. So I was acting the best interest of the board, the brand, the franchisees, Papa John's international, but I didn't know that we had a few board of directors that were working with Fidel and Washington to try to get rid of me because they wanted to run the company. They wanted they wanted me out so they could run the company. Yeah, I appreciate that. I just wish you wouldn't have resigned. You did nothing wrong. You just and the report that came out last year showed you did nothing wrong, right? That shows that you had no racial, and I know you have your own dynamics, you have to deal with. I just, I'm afraid it just made these cancel culture people more powerful. Yes. You always have to fight. You always have to fight with or what's right. And you look at the position they put me in. You have a border director of which two, the CEO, Steve Ritchie, and had a governance. Mark Shapiro, they wanted to run Papa John's. At the time, Papa John's EBITDA was over 200 million a year. Wow. But when you're making that kind of money, people get greedy. And Shapiro and David Ritchie work hand in glove with Jason Stein, the CEO of laundry servers per wasserman's direction to find a way to get me to say something or do anything. They really couldn't find anything in the tape that I said because everything I said in the tape was antiracist. It was the way I was raised that you treat everybody with respect and kindness. Problem is they taped it reversed the meaning in the intent. Took it out of context, took it out of contrast and went to Forbes Forbes wrote part of what I said, but not the whole thing. Again, they took it out of contact. And the rest of the media as you know, they did a media frenzy. They didn't do their homework. And this exploded into a false narrative that did a lot of damage. To me in Papa John's and the franchisees..

The Danger of the 'Shoulder Shruggers'
"And we're back one on one with Jennifer hood. What do you say to those who often November have just kind of given up and they said, they're just gonna steal it again and I don't make a difference. I call those people the shoulders, shrugs, and I see them all the time in my home state of California. It's California. It doesn't matter if I show up. And guess what? We probably lost the recall because those people didn't show up because they thought it didn't matter. So even if you question the system, I do. That doesn't mean you get to stay home. Of course, as much as possible, get involved, this next election in 2022, 2024, it's going to come down to voter registration. It's going to come down to outreach. In many places, where you have to go out and collect ballots because ballot harvesting is legal in certain places now. These are things that we have to be ready to do. We have to be ready to volunteer. And even if even if you think you live in a blue state, like California, find a race that you're passionate about. Whatever it has to be, that you feel like will move the needle a little bit. This is what we have to do strategic. All hands on deck or we don't have a
Jennifer Horn Describes What the MAGA Movement Meant to Her
"Welcome back to one on one with Jennifer hoon. You have been very open Jennifer. In your political stance, you are a proud supporter of the concept of making America great again. You are proud bearer and wearer of all things America first. The merchandise that is. My weekend wear. It's a weekend. When it's not sparkly, it's America first stuff that you can get at our store. Talk to us. We should get some sequined maga stuff for me, by the way. Is that off brand? Well, I can hang. Yeah, that's okay. Talk to us about your take and not the California perspective or the radio show host perspective. Told us about what the maga movement meant to you and the significance of this non politician becoming a president 5 years ago. Well, I think the maga movement meant a lot to me and I identified it really, really early on, and it's because of my it's because of my roots being planted in California that I think it sunk in so much for me. So I can remember clear as day that morning in June. I was Scott walker to the max. You know, there were these rumblings about Donald Trump, maybe jumping in or not, didn't know too much about what he would say didn't know if it was going to be serious or not. Thought, you know what, the more the merrier, it didn't, you know, it didn't make me sad that he was thinking about it. But I remember getting ready for work, and I was sitting on my bed, putting on my shoes. I can visualize this. And I see him come down the escalator with Melania and I see him come to that podium and the very first thing that he talked about was immigration. The very first thing and Seb, I've lived in a border state, my entire life, and I have seen people get left behind. I've seen people living in the shadows. I've seen our school in our hospitals, just get run down because they couldn't handle the load of people using them. And I thought, this is the only man that I have seen that is brave enough to tackle this as the first issue that he's I mean, he walked off the elevator and started talking about immigration. And I mean, that was incredibly brave. Most politicians do not have the backbone to go to a controversial issue like immigration first
Jennifer Horn and Sebastian Discuss the Power and Magic of Radio
"Welcome back to one on one with kra LA's Jennifer horn. So let's tease this out because everybody's listening to the show why, because it's not just they want news. It's not just that they want information or the breaking news, they actually also want they actually love the medium itself. So let's delve into that for a little bit. You have taught me a great deal along with one other person who is also a mentor to me and that's John bachelor who I consider to be the master of the long form. I love long form radio. I dedicate one hour of the show. The last hour of the show, like this one to want to long form. And he helped me understand is you did too. With radio. Well, you just said it in the beginning. You said, you're talking to people at the most vulnerable, they're most private they're in their bathroom. They're at home they're making breakfast for their kids. So it's a different meal. Number one. And secondly, and I look at Russia and others who really led the way. Because it's auditory, there's no fancy visuals that you can use as a crotch. It's very intimate and it is about establishing a relationship, which really, if it's done well. And I think this is what you and your co host grant stinchfield and other great hosts to it's a friendship with the listener. Isn't it Jennifer? Absolutely. You know, I had a lot of coaching all throughout the years. There are a lot of people who go into talk radio consulting and there's a woman named Valerie Geller, who I think is, is phenomenal. And she's written a book about radio. And her most helpful piece of advice is she said, when you're doing a radio show, stick an empty chair in front of you. And just visualize the person that you're talking to. And so I think what's different is when you watch television show. And you see people even in cable news they'll say, our audience, or all of you at home. That's not very personal. Let's just mean you're one of the thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of people, maybe who are watching, right? But when you're on radio, when you are talking to you, can you believe this? What should we be doing about this? How do you feel about vaccine mandates? It becomes very personal. It's a one on one connection. You're not speaking to the masses in radio, or at least you shouldn't be. I think in good talk radio you are speaking directly to one person.
What Can College Students Do to Save the Country?
"Get asked all the time at these events. Charlie what can i do to save the country and these are people that are asking their fifty or sixty or seventy years. Old united salam. I say you need to be as courageous as are turning point. Usa students are on campus. I say you need actually stick your neck out and be really willing to lose something to do the right thing and you have to understand what's happening on these campuses where you are is the center of everything that is happening in the country as many of you know not exactly a fan of most colleges across the country but they're so incredibly important for charting the future and the cultural direction so for example when a professor starts to spout out all these terrible ideas on blm or systemic racism white privilege. How many have professors like that all the time. Of course you do what do you do. You have then all of a sudden you have to ask yourself a question. Which is the most important question that a lot of uganda ask in the next year. Which is this do. I challenge this professor and record this professor while. I challenge them and put at risk. Your great now. This is the question. Isn't it which is do you take a bold step to try to do what you know is right even though you might pay a price or consequence for that now. A lot of you've already made that decision. How many of you are like. I don't care i'm going to do the right thing now. Not every hand goes up because some people like. I don't know i might actually lie right. That the greatest thing ever and that there's unlimited amount of genders whatever and now. I'm not saying there's a right or wrong answer to this right because my friend and i respect him a lot ben. Shapiro has a different opinion on this. He thinks that grades of the most important thing you know lying. Your way through college is important. My belief is different. I would rather have a generation of courageous students. Then a bunch of a student nerds that lied their way through college. So they'll get a good grade. I would rather have a generation of young people that are stepping up and doing the right
Charlie and Dr. Rashad Richey Debate the Threat of the Delta Variant Among Children
"Delta variant has changed the game in many ways where now you have children who not only have the virus but they are experiencing adverse reactions from the virus. Look like never before. I take place. Called jackson county. Mississippi school superintendent. This guy decided to ignore all nineteen protocols. He says he's going to live a life. That's external of the fear of the pandemic. Will his school system. They have a seven percent. Cove it positive rating. They've already lost a schoolteacher. Here's the other dynamic. That people are considering you think children go to school in silos these children who can be carriers of covert nineteen can infect environment such as their parents their grandparents oh the peer groups people that their families associate with and then it becomes an issue of the ecosystem of our safety. Not just the silo of the school system very good. I i will respond. So i'm glad you brought up the delta variant so a lot of people have done some at least initial studies of the delta variant so according to dr roberta debiasi of the children's national hospital. She was asked about ari shapiro from national public radio about the delta verion the national public radio host said wait a second if kids under twelve or not vaccinated is is the delta variant a significant risk and she said quote children are still somewhat between twelve to fifteen percent of all kobe cases and still three to four percent of hospitalizations and we have not seen a huge change in that even with the delta variant. Now i'll add to that. Where the boston globe. Not exactly you know a politicized paper to the right ask. The question is the variant more severe in children. Dr sharon door and epidemiologist at tufts medical center says no. I've not seen any peer reviewed data or data from reliable sources. Suggest that so. I would submit. Doctor that there is no data. To show the delta variant has any harsher 'cause in fact the data shows the opposite
"shapiro" Discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show
"We have been in florida now for a year. And let me just tell you. It was a great move. There certain moves that you make in your life and you consider them for a long time and then you finally do them and it turned out to be the wrong decision. And then there's moving from california to florida. I have taken to florida. Like a new york jew to a retirement home. It is just spectacular. Florida is the best. I understand that there are some people who are very nervous about the weather in florida during the summer. And yeah it's really hot. But that's why you have a pool you know. We don't have a jacuzzi. Can you believe that. He believe we have a jacuzzi. And i know that there are some people who think that florida's just for retirees and it is absolutely not. It's getting much much younger because so many people are moving in. It's also growing more ed. It's a diverse state with a lot of people of different faiths and and different ethnic heritage is and and common themes seems to be that they are here for the freedom. Cova drove a lot of people down her for the right reasons. Meanwhile i went back to california recently and let me just tell you. It ain't great bob. I grew up in la. So i'm elliot boy born and bred. The people in la are just not as nice as the people in florida period. And maybe that's because people in l. a. Are kind of unhappy. Maybe it's because they're just scraping by because it's very stressful to live in l. A. if you want to afford an apartment it's gonna cost you a fortune. If you want to have a job in california. You might be scraping just above living standard. That is not the case in florida. Where people who were renting apartments in l. a. Can buy a house in many parts of florida. That's not even getting to the economics of the tax code okay. Taxes in california are insane. The gas here is like one third less expensive because we don't have a massive gas tax in the state of florida. Living expenses are significantly lower in virtually every major area. The real estate is increasing value. It's still in at la levels and then you get to the actual income tax here and let me just tell you. There's something really nice about having to pay quarterly taxes and not send thirteen percent of my money to the california state government where they proceed to blow it on random crap so just in terms of pure living standard. There is no comparison. How good is ford. Here's how good florida is when you're in la it's figure out what you wanna do with your kids. Every single day in florida is just called the outside. We live in a neighborhood where there is no crime. We live in a neighborhood where there is no serious homeless problem. They're having the kind of childhood that i think. Many of us did experience back in the nineteen eighties and early nineteen nineties but seems to have disappeared in major cities like whilst angeles where my parents came out to. La they're not la natives. My parents came out to la in nineteen seventy nine and they came out there because they wanted to be part of hollywood. They want to be part of the culture. Because the culture gets made in. Hollywood and hollywood has segmented itself off as hollywood has basically either outsourced half of its labor to vancouver or has decided to cut itself off from the broad american public. The draw of l. a. justice not there the glitz and the glamour. They just are not there. They've allowed many of the glitziest places in la to become trash eve's hollywood boulevard has become a disaster area. That was a tourist center. They used to go to grauman's chinese cinema or you would go across the street to the el capitan. Well now that entire place places taken over by the homeless situation a few years ago in which woman was walking down. Hollywood boulevard in a homeless man came import a bucket of feces over her head. This is what l. a. has allowed itself to become even its tourist centers have become degraded so the people are nicer. The economics are easier. Lifestyle is better just. The generalized attitude is really great. La likes to consider itself really tolerant place but the truth is it is not a particularly tomlin replace because l. a. is basically a one party state. If you're of the other political party you could on the down low. You don't go around advertising. Who you voted for if you didn't vote for joe biden if you have a trump bumper sticker on your car. There's a solid shot. The car's getting keyed. That is not the case in florida. You can be a biden fan and live in florida. You can be a trump fan and live in florida and everybody kind of just accept that there are people who live in florida. Who don't live the way that they do or think the way they do. And it's all fine. Which used to just be called america if you believe in raising your children in traditional ways. La is not tolerant of you l. a. looks down its nose at you and you're surrounded by cultural influences. That are just not great if you wanna raise your child this way and remember driving down sunset boulevard and their billboards there. I just don't want my kids seeing. It's something you never occurred to me. When i was growing up there because by the time i remember the stuff i was fifteen sixteen years old and so okay i could handle that sort of stuff but now i've got a seven year old curiously pointing out the window. Amelia wire those people make it so yes. That is an excellent question small child. Why are all those people. Make it in like. That's something that you just won't see at least in the area of florida where i live. There is a generalized feeling in florida. That you can live your life and be left alone at something that doesn't exist in. La.
Real Estate Heir Robert Durst Found Guilty of Murdering Susan Berman
Biden's Vaccine Mandates Are the Ultimate Unconstitutional Overreach
"Ship timber tenth. Two thousand twenty one and david alluded infamy because in many ways these sweeping kovic vaccine mandates are the line in the sand that millions of americans are saying shall not should not much not be crushed. We spent a lot of time on it today. On the unconstitutional overreach biden demonstrating that. He is everything we feared he could be. This administration is validating every fear that those of us who fought hard for donald trump in twenty twenty had these fears are now realized. We got a president acting like an emperor.

"It's nice and really important to get it right. So let's talk for a second about where we are now in twenty twenty one now. I was seventeen years old in In two thousand and one it's been half a generation a huge number of americans not only don't remember mantle eleven to live for nine eleven i and so there seems to be this sort of counterfactual assumption and a matter what we did post nine eleven. We bound not to have another terror attack and because there was no further severe terror attack on american soil Spectacular attack like nine eleven. There's an assumption that no matter what we did it was never going to happen and we may very well see the results of that sort of thinking in exactly the same way that we saw the results that sort of thinking on nine eleven given the fact that you have the president of the united states right now saying that al qaeda was not in afghanistan. We'd routed them out. They are right back in afghanistan. Hi connie network which is kinda associated with helping to quote unquote handles security at at the kabul international airport and you have isis which obviously extraordinarily active over there. Are we experiencing a similar national failure of nation. Like on the late nineties we certainly are are experiencing some forgetfulness about what happened on september eleventh and what transpired after it. I hear a lot about the mistakes that we made that The obama administration made the trump administration. Made yeah in twenty years so we made some mistakes but in an enterprise. This tough this difficult. You're gonna make some mistakes. What we did achieve though was a despite all of mistakes. besides missteps Maybe there were other ways to do things but we achieved what. I did not think possible on september twelfth which was not another attack it was frightening after nine eleven we had a we had streams of intelligence talking about radiological attacks on washington. Dc smallpox attacks on the country constant a threats of another attack. It really wasn't until we captured collie chick mohammed. Who was the nine eleven planner. He was sort of feel general for For north america that we had a sense of what they might have been planning. And we're able to begin to act on it. It wasn't until we were able to take out some of these nests to To work with the world actually to Trace their their financing in ways that led us to some of their people and so what this bodice was an opportunity to really do the hard work of counterterrorism. I remember ben on at the president's speech To the congress the joint session of congress he said that this fight on terrorism will long will be In place long. After i'm gone and many of my successors and we lost patience because perhaps we forgot what was like on september twelfth and thirteenth and fourteenth when it was terrifying to go onto an airplane when it was terrifying to go into the center of new york city when we worried that the anthrax attacks were actually foreign attacks. Yes i think. We have a bit of amnesia. And i can't blame. You know my students here at stanford who weren't even conscious on a september eleventh but i surely don't understand how those who were in the congress and the senate those who were in positions of authority at that time how they forgotten that. I can't that. I can't forgive secretary. Let's talk about some of the other geostrategic implications. What just happened in afghanistan. He's obviously one major. Geostrategic implication is the rise of jihadism. Basically everywhere in osama bin laden said in the up to nine eleven that he thought that america was a paper tiger Certainly that impression seems to be taking routes across the jihadist world. The iranians have been getting very aggressive in their talk about developing a nuclear weapon. I and obviously terror groups of already seeped back into afghanistan and there. There is a rally this week with with members of jihadist groups. Now holding a mock fuel for the united state complete with with the coffins. But there's also some major geostrategic implications for china and russia despite the state department's newfound enthusiasm for large-scale letter sending to the taliban. They said they've gotten over one hundred countries to sign a letter to the taliban urging them to allow people to leave china and russia. Were not on that list of countries. The un security council resolution. That called for freedom of movement from afghanistan's did not include try did not include russia both abstain china's already. Obviously on the way toward recognizing the taliban is legitimate regime in afghanistan which ways of major shift from ninety six to two thousand one only three countries on planet earth actually recognized the taliban regime. Saudi arabia you a in pakistan. Now you have major regimes that are going to do so. Probably including the united states given that we have to bribe them to get people out the russians a continued to nurture their relationship with the taliban. And you know as far as other countries it would be astonishing to me if the russians don't look with envious is latvia and estonia and the chinese. Don't look at taiwan and say to themselves what exactly are limiter or credibility is not divisible. You can't lose credibility in one place and maintain it and other places because people look at the totality of what you've become and Now i think we should remember that in the run-up to nine eleven al-qaeda got bolder and bolder i. There was the attack on the world trade center in new york. And then there was the attack on our embassies and in one thousand nine hundred. Eighty eight In tanzania and kenya. Then there was the attack on the cole and then there was the attack of nine eleven Each time we didn't respond. They got bolder..

"Giving people a couple of decades to move from app absolute tyranny. I and tribalism toward something remotely resembling. Accuracy actually takes a fair but a time. But what do you make of of the development of afghanistan's government. Well i'm glad you mentioned the south. Korean government been They were actually a military dictatorship while onto Yes let the afghan government. And and i thought this every day is national security secretary We were never able to get a hand on their corruption. And we're never able to get a handle on the drug trade there's no doubt about that that full stop and it did Undermine and erode confidence of the afghan population in their government there. There's also no doubt about that but they aren't alone in Being a government that was That had a problem with corruption. And i thought that this last government was trying to to deal with some of those problems. It takes time sometimes through corruption. But whatever you think about the afghan government and their problems with corruption their problems with the with the drug trade. Their problems with tribalism They were far cry from the taliban which was executing women in a soccer stadium given to them by the united nations and when they were asked about this these taliban leaders they said well actually you need to give us another stadium so we can continue to execute people in this one and then we can play games in the other one. So you don't. Let's let's look at the comparative perspective. Here yes. this was an afghan government that was challenged but it wasn't the taliban and it was afghan government that tried to help us When i hear people say well you know. The afghan people obviously didn't want us there You know we see how many afghans hundreds of thousands of afghans were willing to sign on to the american effort to try to build their country a better way who were willing to give their lives to try to build their country in a better way and who. Oh by the way we're willing to help us to build counterterrorism capabilities. That made us safer. I hope when the history of this is written that we will remember that this twenty years that we bought because we were on afghan territory fighting the counterterrorism fight alongside afghans alongside allies from nato using intelligence assets that we had developed to find bin laden and kill him in pakistan that that twenty years bought us a piece that i did not think possible on september twelfth. If you had told me we weren't gonna have a big attack like september eleventh again. I would have told you you were out of your mind. And so let's not forget what this twenty years bought for us. And oh by the way that it did by a chance for the afghan people At something better so secretary raisin in just one second on a talk about that. Because i think that there has been a a sort of willpower failure in the united states senate and certainly a failure of imagination the rivals the failures of imagination taking place in the pre nine eleven era. I we have to talk about policy genius. So here's the thing. If you're a responsible adult you need life insurance right there people who rely on you. God forbid something should happen to you. You need to make sure your stream of income is in gone to properly provide for your family. Most people need ten times life insurance coverage they get through their employer policy. Genius makes.
"shapiro" Discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show
"Dot com slash. Ben my wife. And i love our helix sleep mattress. We get on that thing every night. It is made for us and we sleep like babies. You can to helixsleep dot com slash. Ben okay. so let's talk about the various arguments that made in favor of withdrawal. Someone which i think are just disconnected from reality secretary rice that the one that you hear the most is that this was an endless war. You heard president biden. Say that repeatedly over the course of the last several months by the time we left we had a troop level that was basically ranking number nine in terms of countries where we actually had troops. We had under three thousand troops in afghanistan. We had had zero combat casualties since february of twenty twenty and yet there seemed to be this great urgent drive to remove all troops as soon as possible under the rubric of endless war. And what did you make of that particular argument. While when the american presidents keeps telling the american people that this is an endless war that we have to get out of Even if they're not paying a lot of attention because afghanistan had gone quieter as you noted They're going to start to think it's an endless war and we have to get out of it And here i will say. I don't think we had the best policies is and i've said this before under the trump administration either This notion that america clinton sustain a few thousand troops In a strategically vital part of the world where we were still fighting. Terrorists and terrorist resurgence Where we had an airbase that could help us keep an eye on both pakistan not that stable a place with nuclear weapons and iran one are probably our most of our our pitched enemy in the middle east. The idea that we couldn't sustain that is a great power as a superpower was really extraordinary. And here's the argument. I would have hoped we would have said We are a country. That benefited for a couple of centuries by our great oceans protecting us and peaceful neighbors to the north and the south. We found out on september eleventh that we weren't protected. We decided we were going to take the war to them. So we didn't have to fight it on our soil that means that we need to deploy our forces to fight them out there so we don't have to fight them in here. That means that we may have to deploy small numbers contents of american forces. Intelligence assets and military hardware ford in places like afghanistan where we can with allies from around the world as well as with afghan allies. Continue to prosecute the war on terror. So we don't have to prosecute it at home. I wish somebody had made that argument. Maybe we should take responsibility. Ben those of us in the bush administration for not making that argument more forcefully enough We were pleased with the good. We were doing for the afghan people but they did a lot of good for us to in letting us use their tour territory for own protection. I would also have said we've done this forward deployment before our longest war is actually korea. It is an armistice not a victory in war. We have twenty eight thousand american forces on the korean peninsula because even a powerful korean south korean army can't stand alone against the north. And so why do we think that a younger weaker. Afghan army can stand alone against an insurgency but i would have made the strategic argument. I wish we'd made it better now. So secretary let's talk about the afghan army for a second because this is another excuse that's been used lately. Is the incredibly quick collapse of the afghan army. President biden himself is blamed. The afghan army suggested that they didn't have any will to fights that basically if they weren't capable of holding up their their own country at this point there was nothing that five or ten years would have done down the road. he's literally said that It seems to me that that is again. Utterly disconnected from the facts on the ground namely the fact that we built the afghan army so that they could explicitly work with us in specific ways and then removed all of their support basi's and told everyone in afghanistan. We were leaving while. I've heard many people. Now say maybe. We built the afghan army too much in our own image We built them Needing air power for instance and needing the support of our air power and then of course we took away The contractors that were maintaining The aircraft American pilots were no longer Flying and and training them and helping them to fly these air emissions You make a good point about Telling them that we were leaving I imagine the scene You know that the taliban which was making inroads. We have to be clear about that. The taliban goes into some area encounters afghan military personnel Says you do know that the americans are leaving. You're going to be left here with us If you resist we're going to kill your children So how about you come over to our side and lay down your weapons It's not hard to see. Why the morale of the afghan army collapsed under those circumstances when we didn't even tell the new commander of bog rem air force base to whom we were turning it over in the afghan commander that we were leaving. We left in the middle of the night We did we did nothing. Really the shore up their sense of their ability to fight. And if one thing really Really rankles me this idea that They didn't fight. They chose to to surrender to the taliban they lost sixty. Six thousand people in this war was talking with Some of my colleagues Former military officers they talk about A general who we now think An afghan general who we now think is trapped behind taliban lines Who lost both his legs in a fight. A firefight that we were involved in and he can't get out couldn't get to the airport. I thought that One thing really bothered me. It was the The heartlessness of talking about afghan fighters in that way when they'd given so much Yes people surrendered. They surrendered rather quickly. But i don't think we gave them a chance secretary rice. One of the things that's been said is the afghan government was corrupt. There were serious corruption issues going back to the karzai administration in afghanistan that the united states was never able to sort of wrap our arms around that and thus there is not any support for the interim government or for the the current national government of afghanistan. New real measure that the tribalism was eventually going to replace that anyway It seems to me that there's a bit of historical ignorance when it comes to comparative situations in the the south korean government in holding election is whole the eighties. Literally there for thirty to forty years before they held the free and fair election So giving people a couple of decades to move from app absolute tyranny. I and tribalism toward something remotely resembling. Accuracy actually takes a fair but a time. But what do you make of of the development of afghanistan's government. Well i'm glad you mentioned the south. Korean government been They were actually a military dictatorship while onto.

The Difference Between Keywords and Topics With MarketMuse Co-Founder Jeff Coyle
"Talk to me a little bit about the the difference between keywords topics and wire breath depth important in the both of those or so. A topic is more like a concept so it can be an entity. It's a group of concepts and a keyword will typically live inside that pool of topics right so good way to think about a somewhat higher. But i like to connect key words to intent as well in addition to talking about topics keywords so semantic relatedness typically relates to the saying if you are going to cover this one topic. It's highly likely or these are other related topics to that core topic and keywords can live at it within those like. I always joke around. It's like there's keywords that a live within a topic it's the square rectangle thing. There's sometimes you don't know the difference between a keyword as how great Approach all of those things similarly to say. I want to cover this really well. I want to achieve goals for the user. That i'm gonna write against and if i'm going to build on a topic that is general right. I one hundred. Are there different meanings for this specific topic. How fractured is the specific topic for intense. So if people are searching for this specific topic are they at different stages of the funnel that's intent fracture but they also could be meaning descended. Uation i mean right. So if it's an acronym if somebody's typing in crm a might be talking about customer like you should management. That might be talking about you. Know some other for that thing in your case. When you're talking about ben shapiro versus benjamin shapiro. We're talking about two person entities. That have different needs right so it's a little bit different there but the topics that you cover you wanna be covering them so that it tells the story that you actually know what you're talking about so you have all the intense covers. You have all those keyword variants covered. But you're telling that story the same way

Facebook Reveals Most Viewed Posts to Rebut Claims Its Rife With Disinformation
"Partially in response to the regularly documented fact that the posts garnering the most interactions on their platform every day are from biased sometimes misinformation lead and sources facebook announced that it will be publishing quarterly reports showing what content actually gets the most views overall therefore what is seen by the most people not just interacted with the most. The first of these reports came out yesterday showing public news feed content seen by us-based users from april first. Through june thirtieth. The report includes the top twenty domain sources link posts pages and general posts despite the fact that new york times reporter kevin russa's manually run twitter account that posts the top performing link posts in the us on facebook every single day based on interactions shows folks like ben shapiro and sean hannity. Making it into the top ten. Nearly every day neither of them made the cut for top views in facebook's official reports orissa's data by the way comes from facebook's publicly accessible analytic site crowd tangle so both of these are official numbers they're just looking at different data sets the top viewed content across the whole platform hasn't been publicly accessible in this way until this report instead of the some of the sources that reuss has found are interacted with the most everyday the number one top viewed domain source of all non facebook content shared on facebook. I am very happy to report as someone still mad at facebook video for reasons. Too numerous to get into now was youtube. The number one domain being linked to on facebook is youtube others in the top. Twenty are the usual suspects like amazon. Go fund me tick tock twitter. Google docs and some news sites like cnn. Cbs and quasi news sites like the daily mail. The most widely viewed facebook page was unisex which is nice pages like the dodo lad bible and again. The daily mail also showed up in the top twenty

About how stepping into the unknown applies in your own life in in your own career. Well i was really influenced. Several years ago. I interviewed the great writer danny shapiro and we were talking after the interview. She came into my office at the school of visual arts and saw that i had stacked on my task. Three books had just come out a barrel confidence. I i really had felt at the time. That confidence is by holy grail. But this is what. I was looking for to find my whole life if i could find the confidence to step into any without fear that that would be like my life likely be made and she and i started talking about that and she said oh i think. Confidence is really overrated. What what like ed explodes. And i pressed her for more information. And she said that she felt the confidence overrated that most people that just head oodles oodles of confidence were jerky thought was more important than confidence was actually courage and that courage to step into that unknown was was far more important to being able to reach any kind of call in so it set me on a pass of a research to really find our What confidence actually meant.

Jennifer Horn Was in a "Radiophonic Foursome" With Ben Shapiro
"It true that you are in a radio. Phonic foursome with ben shapiro for awhile. Yeah so the story kind of continues on you know. I'm doing this national morning show. That was the first job that i had and really getting more involved in politics and kind of met up with with our big boss here at salem radio by chance at a christmas party for another radio station at the wabc christmas party in new york and allow people from salem to the wabc. Christmas party did that day. Intelligence mission was an undercover reconnaissance. It was that's what we were doing. we were spies. We were wired for sound but it was very funny so i talked to our big boss here. At salem radio fill boys and we had a great conversation he said i might be looking for someone. How far away is glendale from your house in los angeles and so i started filling in a bid. Now they went into a different direction. They have the show at three person. Show alicia krause. Ben shapiro and dip brian whitman and unfortunately for the three of them in two thousand sixteen none of them liked trump. And i really kind of i don't wanna say fell in love. It wasn't like a romantic love. But i really saw the appeal of president trump. From that moment that he came down the escalator. I knew he was tapping into something important. He had this. He had this message. He was brave enough to talk about immigration. Which i hadn't seen anyone in our party do before and as someone who lives in california. I knew this immigration problem was not only affecting us but the entire country and he talked about it and he wasn't afraid and he talked in a language that people could understand. And so i got it. And i would start talking about it on the show that i was hosting at salem radio the jenin don show up time. That's where we met seb when through. Don dick's my partner on that program and so the program director at the station said you know you've been doing some fillon here. Why don't you come in and just temporarily be a fourth person in the room. And so there were four of us on that morning show and three of them did not like
Nevin Shapiro and The Grocery Ponzi Scheme
"Guess in two thousand like he started this company that would make him the miami hotshot future convicted felon that he now is capital investments. Usa was the name of the company they bought wholesale groceries and flipped him or claimed that they did. This flipped him and more expensive markets for a profit basically so he's doing like some sort of wholesale grocery business and again. It's like these people said all this shit up every single time. They like go to all these efforts of these things. And it's probably something that they could legitimately make money. That's what drives me crazy. It's just crazy so basically. It was revealed in the court documents that he never actually resold any of the groceries. He set up a ponzi scheme so he would get all these investors involved that were giving him all this money like millions of dollars now like he was able to convince them to do that and then he would use one investor to pay the other investor. You know what i mean like. That's kind of how the ponzi scheme works shirt. So it makes it look like they're legitimately making money like maybe the first two or three investors right. It's actually not the case because it's being paid for by other investors. Except how long did this thing last. So yeah that's part of the time line and basically this whole thing happened from two thousand and two to two thousand ten eight years. It's amazing how long to figure this out. Oh for real. 'cause i mean if you're turning and burning and like paying people off as you go you know you can probably make it last a while doing that kind of stuff because it makes it look like. Oh yeah this is really happening. And it's just like all fake stuff song. I'm kind of need to get new people. And i'm so yeah sharia says why. These new people would invest in this particular thing. Maybe i'm not understanding it. But he was just going to buy cheap groceries and sell to rich people like go up to the bag and by and just by old years food and just go peddle it down in the rich neighbors. Like i don't understand you know honestly just from my limited experience with like products movements and stuff like this gets a common business. Practice with the grocery industry to have wholesalers like that where they go out and they find where they can get like something really cheap from the source and then they'll go and sell it for a lot more to make a profit. They probably have like a certain profit margin that they have and so then they go back they go and then sell it to like whole foods or one of those places. They'll find like the bigger grocery chains and sell it for more money. That's kind of how it works. Yeah so i can totally see. I mean this went on for about ten years. So i can totally see how people would get duped into

Those e familiar better may come to know that they've been wanted to keep players in building plant based protein ingredients for hybrid products to help reduce the reliance on factory farming. And that's what we've been paul's mission and with this new plant. They really think in hero thinks that they could take it to the next level. So it's an interesting conversation. Also captured polls Thoughts on things like what's happening in sub as meat and the overall scaling the plant based mitri. So it's a fun conversation. An education one so i hope you enjoy it as always you could get more tech show podcasts. At the spoon dot tech or in.
Marketing In Multiple Channels to Create More Revenue Streams
"So i wanna talk to you a little bit about the future for guys like me who are kinda stuck in one channel and you seem to be able to operate multiple different marketing channels at once. We've all this stuff together john. What's the future look like. How'd you get from being a you know a solo per noor operator influence over to being the man behind the duct tape marketing engine. Well i would like to say that. I sat down one day and created this master plan but the reality is i just kept doing things and then i showed up the next day and kept doing more things and i will say that i do have a sense of being able to view things and seeing how they could work together and i think that's one rio key to if you wanna stay lean and have a small team. Things have to actually support each other. You know i started writing blog posts in two thousand and three as a way to just kind of spread the word get my message out there. I added podcasting not so much to build a platform to have a bunch of listeners. I maybe i was hoping that but ultimately added it because it supported the goal of me-meeting other influencers. It was a great way for me to reach out to folks like ben shapiro. Say you wanna be on my show and ultimately. What i wanted to do is pick your rain for thirty minutes. You mean the political podcast or this guy this guy and so it just there was a reason for it. And that's what really allowed me to stick to. When i don't know maybe ten people were listening but that wasn't the goal of doing it. You know so. Many people start things like a blog or a course or a podcast because they want those things to make money. And that's great. That's great ultimately. I hope they do in. The podcasts does Sa- by a significant revenue stream for us but it also supported building the brand at supported away for us to create content as ported away for us to build more authority and so those are the reasons that we did it so ultimately what i'm saying is everything that we've kind of added. There's been a logical reason of how it could support other revenue streams or other objectives.

He wants to know how can a young college age conservative begin to make a difference in the cultural war. So if you are a college age conservative you're now reporter zone. Andrew breitbart used to say you got a cell phone. Reporter is a lot happening on college campuses that needs to be exposed to the light of day and you can be one of the people who does it. There's a lot of stuff that's newsworthy. A lot of taxpayer dollars going into those colleges. The parental dollars going into those colleges and the colleges are a fond of horrendous ideas that affect the rest of the country so become a reporter. Grab a cell phone. Get to work. And there's great organizations out there like america's foundation we'll print it and this is story we'll printed that you're you're going to speak there in a couple of weeks. Yes i think next week and yeah they've found or great resource for all right. This question comes from joshua in kokomo indiana. That's funny because when i think cocomo i don't again the anna all right well. America's institutions be one hundred percent liberal by twenty four. No there will just be alternative institutions if they alternate liberal there will be alternative conservative institutions. And i will be a lot richer because honestly like the way that this is going to work if we end up with one conservative razor company in one liberal razor company ideally placed to start a conservative razor company so like on a personal financial level. Then fine bring it but on a on a country level. I really hope that we can back away from this because it is. It's not good that there should be like you go to the store or two separate stores and now we're just completely segregated in terms of politics that is not a good thing. Also what about the people in the middle. Yeah like where do they shop razors. I'm not sure next question comes from aden. In fort worth texas he high. And what is your advice for young conservatives and it's still worth it to go to call excellent question so when it comes to college if you're not in a stem field. I always start with this. If you're just unfilled yes. It's worth it to go to college. You're going to have national job connected to your education and my wife being a doctor. It was good for her to be premed before she. What does she she. she's a doctor. Alcoa really it's like it's cool thing in fact. I believe that you've called her for advice on occasion. She's my go-to yes she. She's she's useful and so if you're in some field then yes if you're a what we call a north campus major at ucla. Meaning liberal arts polly's lesbian downs theory. If you're in any of those things then you should seriously consider whether it is worth your money and your time and you might see if you can find an apprenticeship. Business that you think is more worthwhile. If you can't then she'd go get the college degree because people still use credentialing. The real problem is not individuals deciding to go to college. The real problems that businesses need to stop screening college degrees right now. Screening for college degrees is a stupid thing. There are three business partners here at daily wire. Two of the three did not graduate college. I i went to law school. My both matters as partners did not graduate from college. We don't screen for college degrees at the daily wire. If you're qualified you're qualified to do the job then you're here right. I mean that's sort of the way that we approach it. And i think more businesses auto approach it that way all right. The next question comes from megan in dumfries virginia. She says that the country seems to be so politically divided right now. And what suggestions do you have to help. Bridge the gap between those on the left and the right or do you believe that returning to bipartisanship. It's even possible. So i i think that so. Long as the government remains a giant grab bag of cash and power. It's gonna be very difficult for bipartisanship to to prevail because it's just too big. I mean everybody is going to want to grab a hold of that ring. It's it's just lord of the rings and whoever grabs a hold of the ring doesn't want to let it go the way the fixed polarization is really easy. You find somebody who disagree with and you say publicly. they're human. I mean really. It's that simple. And i did this the other day on twitter just as a thought experiment tweeted out like you know if you're listening to n. Polarization what you could do is just list people who you who didn't vote like you did in the last election and say they're a nice person that you disagree with but they're a nice person and you're happy to read their work and i listed off like fifteen people people all the way to like van jones on laugh john lovett right of of of positive america. None of the van van might say something. Nice about me because vienna actually has the stones. Stand up for this right. He worked with trump on criminal justice reform in a movie with meghan mccain. Readies man actually has the courage of of trying to work across the aisle. But i don't think you're ever going to see somebody like love. It say yeah bench bureau. Somebody who i know is being nice and the people just on the left. I noticed that there are a bunch of people on the right. Who followed up that tweet with like. Here's my list. I couldn't find a blue checkmark. Lefty who did it not one and then things retweeted like thirty thousand times so yeah i think that's kind of telling i always did the The car tire rule that if you had a flat tire in the side of the road who would you trust to help out your daughter and if you don't have somebody like that that you're friends with on the other side of the aisle then all right. Next question comes from colin and british columbia canada. What is your to young conservatives. Like him but in canada i mean they're dealing with a lot of stuff right now specifically the damping down of oh you know religious gatherings stuff a very left wing country. And how can we make a change. That is right for traditional values in such a woke culture that works to silence us. I mean i do think there's gonna be blowback in canada as well. I mean the conservative party's been in the wilderness for a bit up there. But i think the blowback. We'll begin i mean. Stephen harper was the popular prime minister there for a while. I and i think that the the left is pushing so hard so fast whether it's bill sixteen in ontario or whether it's the crackdown on religious freedom more broadly. I think they're going to be a lot of people in canada. Who eventually just gonna say enough is enough. I think it's happening across the west. By the way. I think it's it's being manifested in the rise of right wing parties in europe to interesting and a little bit of pushback with serote to yes like here in the states. All right next question comes from mitchell and mount annan new south wales australia. He claims that he's your number one fan from australia. I don't know he's gotten a lot. Australian fans right in tonight but maybe our mitchell he looks forward to reading your new signed book and keep up the good work mr shapiro. Nice urging word. I appreciate that. That's urging patrick from toledo ohio. Any advice on how to write your first book to make a stand in the culture Outline research The the i've written all of my own books which you know can only be said for a few of the authors in this particular space. I was i was going to give away some behind the scenes that you've written a few other books too. That is not true But it's but i think that for for if you're if you're not used to writing really have to make an outline and then you have to follow the outline fairly closely so you have to pre precinct kind of where you're going. I've done it so much. That i really don't out anymore. I can sit down. And i can just right but that comes after years and i've been doing this for nearly two decades house sellers What's he this would be the fourth near times bestseller. This one is is number four. But then there's like another five that are under the people's names and i can't talk about contractually saw guys. Can you believe that we're to like our final question really. I mean it's been fun and you came to florida just for this time flies when you're having fun and the cuban food on the cuban food. Yeah all right this comes. From matthew in mankato mankato's minnesota since getting elected. Do you think that the president has become a uniter or a divider. he's been credibly divisive. I it's it's really disturbing. Because again he was elected to basically do things not donald trump and be dead. Those were the two things and he by the fact is not donald trump is not donald trump. But he's not. Been quite as dead as i think. Everybody was promised meaning that he is physically not alive but his his sort of take on..

"We'll have troops in the quote unquote advisory capacity back in afghanistan. All right next question comes from jeff in illinois as a teacher. Oh god bless you. Jeff what is the best way to address. And debunk the debate of critical race. Theory within the walls of the school building. So i think that the best way to handle it. If you're told to to handle it is to explain what critical race theory is and then explain why it's wrong. So critical race theory is basic notion. Is that neutral things like individual rights are actually just a cover for racial superiority. And inferiority and racial hierarchies. I think that coming to grips with the falsity of that pointing out that that is not true pointing i. It's very easy to point out that. The evils of american history i replicated nearly everywhere else on earth. The good of american history is replicated. Nearly nowhere else on planet earth and that is a pretty simple way of understanding. Why it is that. The united states is a good country and was founded on good principles even though the founders very often not live up to those principles at the time. How's your hand doing so far. So good i mean i sound like literally ten thousand points the other night so yeah we're signing the real deal right now guys so you know. Get that ready. I think ice bucket for you the end. I don't know my husband uses it when he's grilling on its green egg. But you know you you can use it when your your husband is like a pirate. Eric is a pirate biking. Think once you call them like a a lumber sexual well. that's clearly true. Like i saw a picture of him recently. Got the beard. He's more biking now. He's got like the long hair go. It's it's a long shoulder-length likings mixed with miami vice. I think and and generous wife what brings home the bacon the fair also. I mean he. He's a very handsome biking man. Yeah let's your your babies are very we're staying in california we're just going to be fruitful and multiply and then hopefully in eighteen years. The voting block is like you're delusional. But you know enjoy. Enjoy the ride all right. I think we have another a third authoritarian. Moment her go gonna hit what i know. I'm actually break. how'd you get. That black guy was a scheme by the god king. No all right this one. Oh this jean ping yeah bad guy times this over here. One hundred year anniversary of the chinese communist party. You know the guys responsible for cova. Let's take a forty million people nearly forty all right so we had a bit of a mike emergency. They're just like you guys in on the behind. The scenes turned into a scene from singing in the rain. or lina. lamont is trying to hide the microphone and and it's It's actually in the bushes but then it's also like in the bustle. So that's such a good movie though is a great movie. gene kelly. All right all right so talk about that one but sing like good morning. Nowh- i really don't actually so yes. I'd rather talk about the communist chinese party. And i gotta say the audience is like just get assigned books to the show. Stop with the singing again. That were all like that very often. It's been it's been so long alicia but in any case Yes there's winnie the pooh writing down the street to the cheers of throngs of people who are in place if they if they don't go paying has as rian shrine dictatorship in china in incredible ways his predecessor wednesday bo was was famously. A person who's supposedly attempting to open the economy and then it was going to reveal new sort of open politics and it never happened. It turns out that the going theory in the west which is that if you provide economic benefit and free trade to countries that this somehow makes them less dictatorial remains an unproven theory and instead it turns out that weaponized and capitalism against the west. Yeah just it's kind of like putin. They just give it to all their buddies in their oligarchs until they send you to siberian camp somewhere. All right next question comes from emile in quebec city quebec canada. Just like yourself. I'm a huge fan of western movies and classical music. Which western movie score is your favorite. That's a good one of the best. One is clearly magnusson seven and then it's clearly the best western score although i do have a soft spot for Dmitri tamken score in gunfight at the ok corral because it has one of those opening songs where they actually sing. You know about the plot. Yeah i kind of kind kinda dig that but yeah the score to magnificence. Heaven is fantastic number. Bernstein is is the western composer. It all sounds like oakland by the way. Sounds like aaron copland interesting. All right this comes from kevin and tampa florida. What is position on global warming. Is it real or not and given your reasoning to. Why also if israel will it affect us in the near future okay. So the answer is that by all available data that i had seen a global warming is real even people who are sort of lukewarm acknowledged. The gold mornings rather serious debate over. How much human is affecting global warming and more importantly what we can do right now because once the is in the air it stays up there for ten thousand years. It ain't come down anytime soon. So the the euro perks for example. If we had undertaken that it would have really done very little to actually lower the trajectory of the climate. The same thing is true of the paris accords. Which we're going to do very little. The number one on planet earth by far right now is trying to the united states has been lowering its emissions because we have better technology and natural gas which left doesn't like apparently and they also don't like nuclear power if we actually want to focus on mitigating the effects of global warming. That's gonna be a lot. Easier and humans are much better at adapting rather than changing entire ways of life that have added enormous carbon based fossil fuels an unbelievable boon to humanity and people who don't have them are literally burning dung in their homes right now and then dying of the attendant diseases so fossil fuels are great. The only problem is of course that this does have an impact on the climate. That is a slow rolling impact. It's going to be felt over. The course of the century human beings have an excellent way of adapting to the sort of stuff. So if you actually want to spend money on stuff what we should be spending money on his development of technologies like g engineering to change the weather for that worried about it or developing technologies to suck carbon out of the air or building walls. Or if you're worried about miami being underwater wing and build some more seawalls because there are lots of cities in the united states that exists below the sea level and the same thing is true all over the world but then there's this sort of weird idea about global warming that because the earth is gradually warming over the course of the century that we are going to see catastrophic murder by the environment of billions of people and hundreds of millions are gonna die right. I mean and none of this has turned out to be true in her. It turns out that when people see the weather changing they tend to move or they tend to leave these particular areas. And that's not great. I mean that's not ideal but it also is what humans have done for literally all of human history. The you'll recall that there used to be an actual like bridge between russia on this end and alaska right. I mean sarah palin could see it from her house and the and that no longer exists because the climate is constantly changing and because the water level rises and falls and you have icebergs that exist. You know five hundred years ago that don't exist now And that's not the end of the world. It may not be ideal for people who are living in particular places but human beings are great adaptation. It's the one thing that we are the best we create technologies. We move we. We can change sort of how we how we live. What is really hard is to say to everybody right. Now turn off your air conditioner. Stop driving a car. Stop using fossil fuels and it's one thing to to a bunch of richy riches in france and the uk and the united states. Judy you're gonna seriously like you're going to go over to africa. And you're gonna say to people you know what you're living in. Abject poverty what we really need from you is to live in abject poverty for like a long time because at least you're carbon emissions are really low. They know that is not that. It's not a solution. All right next question comes from rob. I'm sorry rob. I know you're in the great state of georgia..

"I you have to find a faculty adviser who's actually going to allow you to write on topics that are controversial and this is a hard thing. One of the things that happened in the university systems that the university system basically creates the self-perpetuating elite where professors who are left wing tend to approve thesis. Theses that are there are left-wing And so you have to find somebody who's willing to oversee or thesis if it happens to be a right wing thesis and then the reality is that you can do an awful lot With a position at not even a particularly prestigious college that a lot of professors In sort of conservative movement who are famous and have done extraordinary work From purchase at not particularly well known colleges. One of the you know sort of criminal justice. Mind who comes to mind right. now's wolford riley teaches at eastern kentucky university. It's not an ivy league school but the work that he's doing is deeply important. I and And i think that you know from perch at university. You can do a lot of a lot of this all right. This question comes from scott in irvine. Scotland scotland scotland. How do we prevent institutions from becoming weaponized in the future so the unfortunately the only way to do this would be to either. Have everybody understand. Weapons down or we just have mutual assured destruction. Those are the only two options right. Now there's this kind of wing of the conservative movement. It's like well. we should never use mutual destruction. You let them be the bad guys and we'll be the good guys and we'll sit over here and get our butts kicked and that's not a good strategy mean at a certain point. We have to convince the left that the best thing to happen here. Go back to neutrality with these institutions. And if they don't then we're going to do to these institutions what do the incident to the institutions. because we can't just sit there and allow them to run roughshod over purportedly neutral institutions. And then turn those against us that we we just can't do that. All right next. Question comes from my home state. And is eric in yukon oklahoma. Do you believe that. A conflict between china and the united states will actually happen and you have a prediction of the outcome of such a conference. It's hard to imagine an open military conflict between the united states and china directly. I think what is much. More imaginable is some form of proxy war in taiwan Or some form of proxy war in south china sea china does not want to get into a shooting war with the united states because we will win We we still do have significantly more military firepower. We were the greatest military force in the history of the world. Still and china knows that But what china also understands that. We are really really resins to use force with regard to china and they've got a lot of our corporations over a barrel because we opened our markets to them and they open their markets conditionally to our corporations and so. I think that the most likely scenario is gradual ratcheting up tensions the possibility of a shooting more exist. But it'd be mainly if if there is a mistake of intent. Right where china thanks. Okay well if we move on taiwan militarily the us isn't going to do anything and then the us feels that its line has been crossed and the us response in kind but And that is why. It's so ridiculous that the west has has basically done nothing in the face of chinese predation. Now be an excellent time to start suffering economic ties with china and if that costs americans money frankly i think americans are kinda up for. Considering the chinese unleash virus that has killed at least four million people worldwide including six hundred thousand americans. Yeah all right. Next question comes from tyler who is at mcguire. Air force base key says with the power that social media has and as it continues to grow. Do you think there will be a time in the future in which it becomes regulated by the federal government. And if so what are your thoughts on I'm deeply afraid that will become regulated by the federal government and there are a couple of different ways you could theoretically regulate social media. One is not bad way and one is a horrific way. This is why when you see people like on the left and the right they agree. Social media ought to be regulated. No they they do not actually left would like elizabeth warren to sit over social media and determine what good content looks like and i think that for the most part people on the right with like for social media go hands off in terms of policing quote unquote misinformation. Because we just don't trust their standards as what information constitutes. I think that as i've suggested before maybe the proper solution is to get rid of what's called the catch all clause in section thirty of the communications decency act that. That'd probably be the best policy solution. There's not widespread agreement for that. However i just. I can't see given the amount of air that social media has drawn. There won't be a president of some party who just in order to get. the win. does something in terms of policy that ends up has more power. The federal government the solution to failures of social media not to give the idiots who staff the federal government or power. And it's always. I always tell people. Think of the shoe on the other foot. Yeah you might like it when vitamins in there. But you ain't gonna like it if somebody else but only right. It's question comes from luke in pensacola florida. Who says hey ben. Welcome to florida. I know you've said you're not interested in public office but we could really use your help. Filling the shoes of governor disentis when he wins the presidency in twenty twenty four. Hey name it. Climate man name it climate. Please and thank you love your stuff. Oh i mean from your mouth. To god's ears with regard to governor to santa's you'll be an excellent president. He's an excellent governor Why would i ever run for office. It sounds absolutely horrendous money. Way are you kidding like him if you bought books right now right. This very instance. How is this possible. I mean it's incredible but also also like The the reality is that that campaigning and asking people for money and having to shake my message. Because i want to win office. And like i've worked at a five hundred. Eighty three and going to people and asking them for money is really uncomfortable. And really kinda terrible and then if you win then you go live in tallahassee right which is like okay i guess but not his love for the sunshine. State only goes so far folks. The kush restaurants are there in tallahassee. I don't even eat. Do it usually picking lettuce out of the garden would be like finding kosher food on your jet and then it would be a wholesale but it was just wales rich politicians so yeah alrighty. Then mitt romney route fund your on campaigns. And here's i'm thirty seven years old so if in thirty years i decide to run for president i will still be the youngest person running for president so i i thirty years of money-making and my kids growing up and then we can talk about it all right. This question comes from new south wales australia. The question comes from adrian who says considering that the left runs most organizations and institutions. At what point do you think. The right will be proactive in their political approach rather than playing catch up. I have the same exact question girl. Also when the timing is appropriate the current pandemic..

"Thoughts on that authoritarian moments. Yes i mean the the sort of background. So that for folks. Who don't know is that in the middle of the great depression. Fascism was kind of the way so mussalini was considered actually in pretty good odor by a large swath of left in the united states thing stalin and even hitler hitler was featured as time magazines man of the year in nineteen thirty. Six it the the walters randy's of the world we're still going over to the soviet union and talking about how wonderful things were over there and journal gobert talks about this at length in in his book liberal fascism but the nra was the federal government saying to private businesses. We need you to put up this patriotic symbol inner window. And this is how we know that you are abiding by our request for you to limit your prophet and also give certain wages to particular people and there was actual governmental pressure to the market saying only shop at places that are showing you this special sign this blue equal which is really creepy authoritarian for. Sure i also kind of feel like we're going that way down the slippery slope with the regulations of like where you are allowed to and not go. But i'm sure we'll have some questions related to that and if you're just tuning in her. This is another reminder that order. Purchase a signed copy of ben's new book the authoritarian moment head on over to daily wire dot com slash ben. So let's sign some books. Give some hardworking. Well paid people here at the daily wire. Who got these ready. I'm so tempted to sign. One don't disappoint poor christina in tarrytown new york be like who the heck is alicia.

That is excellent. it's like a cookie butter flavor. Also that one's really good. I'm big into is they also have like a a toffee alcohol flavored thing. That's they it's one wait. What do you like alcohol. I like alcohol flavor. i'm. I'm still not i'm still a child. Florida has changed you. I mean i always drink. Florida drinks right. Always have like the and i look like basically. This is my place where i'm like an eight year old judres columbus on the beach like. Yeah if no new long enough to know that. I was always i was always florida banned. It was just a question of time. All righty this next question. Comes from sean sean. Ben's going to send your right now. He's a newborn berg oregon and he says it seems like a lot more. People have woken up to the current authoritarian trend. However most people seem to be remaining silent. Like you'd mentioned people are afraid of speaking out right. What do you think it will take for more people to start speaking up while everyone else seems afraid to do so. The big thing is a feeling of momentum's they're always have a few people who step out front and then mobilize everybody else because the the dike has been breached. Now you know the sort of movement you sells critical race theory. It took a few parents to get up and start saying things. That's receive a lot of media attention. A lot of other people got up and they said. Oh wow there are people who agree with me. One of the things that these sort of conspiracy of silence that has occurred on social media in the media with regard to dissenting views. His done is make you feel like you're by yourself like you are alone like you're investment oregon posting all these hashtag exactly. It's it's black square time. All of your friends are gonna be. It's pride month you have to post the rainbow pride flag or something. And if you don't do it then you are definitely on the outs with all of your friends and family and if you say listen i really don't like this is my thing. Then you're by yourself because you've done something wrong but the truth is violence. Your silence is whether they did it. This is one of the points. I make in the book they morphed. The left has more from be polite right. Just don't say anything. That's super offensive. To speech is violence. And if you say something that offends me actually committed an act of violence upon me to silence violence. Which is you must mirror. Every single thing i say and if you do not you have done an act of violence to me but i think the bottom line is that we have to create a feeling that there are a bunch of people who think like you and i think that's one of the things that the book is pointing out if you think that you're in the minority because you think the men are men and women are women you are not. That isn't majority position in the united states. If you think that you're in the minority because you don't believe that united states is inherently racist or that the institutions of the united states founded and racism. Or that. the cops racist if you think that. That's a minority. That is not a minority position has a majority position is just the you've been told by all of these institutional players who control your means of of garnering information that's just a fringe but these are not fringe positions these majority positions but back to shawn's question. Who does it take to step out and say something. In order for people like sean and others. Who are using jane doe when they ask ben shapiro question on public internet because they're afraid of the ramifications who does it take. You have to organize inside your own. Companies with. This really requires collective action. You need if you you need. Basically ten to twenty percents of your company to mobilize with you so fine people with whom you can have solidarity one hundred percent company saves you can find fifteen or twenty other people who agree with you.

So this is we live in free country and with consenting adults and free expression of who and what they are now agree with you.

Biologically how you express yourself who you choose as a sexual partner if we actually live in a free country as we tell ourselves people's freedom to behave in any of those ways should not concern you at all nor are they requiring that you behave that way. This is for their own freedoms we live in a free country. Look i love that. He uses the rhetoric. That's typically championed by conservatives regarding freedom and we live in a free country and no one is forcing you to do this i. I think that it's effective. And you know if you watch the full conversation shapiro kind of struggles to respond to it. It's so big of shapiro. I'm sorry but just hats. Off to low ben shapiro for having someone who actually believes that the earth rotates around son instead of the other way around as many of my viewers probably believe And i know. And i i.

One of our members wrote in and said You know it's pretty rich of shapiro to as an astrophysicist about like issues pertaining to like genetics gender. And all of that you know but i. I was under the impression that all scientists are the same. All scientists study the same science. Don't they i mean don't all scientists also look into why it is that women would Feel any type of arousal during sex. Which i've failed to provide my own wife and that's why cardi b. literally triggers me and i'll do an embarrassing segment on it anyway. That's who ben. Shapiro is by the way paints engine. He doesn't even blink well when he's asking these same questions. But i'm glad he had the conversation because i enjoyed having a discussion on our show and maybe he should have more scientists on more scientists less cranks. I think that it would do A world of difference for ben shapiro show and maybe even ben shapiro ideology. We'll see well that doesn't for our first hour. We're gonna take a break and when we come back we're going to give you an update on what's going down with corona virus and how the olympics in tokyo looking with this pandemic still raging on and later in the show.

"Sells information to other companies house. Easiness doesn't add on extra fees had an over to policy dot com. Get started right now policy genius when it comes to insurance. It's nice to get it right already. Let's talk about A couple of things that you mentioned we talked about sort of the the belief in human potential and the ability to to live lives of meaning and purpose and the the problems with great institutional power. And i think that there's they're almost two separate topics. And i'd like to dive into the one at a time when it comes to human beings one of these classical traditions and this is true and judeo christian traditions also true in sort of ancient greek philosophy. And it's true for most of western history and even in his law in the islamic world There there's this belief that there is such thing as an innate human nature and that you run up against challenges in innate human nature and that what civilization is really about whatever your form civilization is is tailoring yourself to the demands of cumin nature and the society around you and i think that is a very different view of what identity was than what identity has now become. There's a view that i think is now very prevalent that human beings are entirely self created that completely malleable. We can be whatever we wanna be and that what we are searching for is not a way of living in the world but instead in inner authenticity and then we demand that everybody around sort of mirror are authentic view of ourselves and to me that that is dangerous and prevents us from living in a society because in order for us to actually sheriff society even in a small community. We have to understand the rules of the road and that there are limits to what i can demand of us. I wanna know from from you. How do you see human nature. Ah i sort of as a religious person. Have the the both optimistic and pessimistic view. Human nature that human beings as as james madison put it in in the federalist papers are capable of being both angels and devils which is why require some societies to to shape and mold them and then there's the sort of russo view that human beings are naturally good. And if you leave them all behind what. What is your view on that. Surprise my from my personal experience from my own reading i would have to if not conclude currently reside in a place where i see malcolm mation of these ideas. There was no question. When you know you and i in our ways of both cultural commentators and the reason with commentating on culture is because we're recognizing that culture has a power to shape and form influence and mode behavior if it has that power than likely therefore we are to a degree a product of this cultural Sculpting manipulation as call it. i also believe in this. i suppose comes from a somewhat mystical and perhaps even esoteric perspective but there is an innate awareness within us. I believe that there is a to use a word you used earlier. Tell us that in the same way we might appreciate. The ac planted and correctly nurtured will find its formation and fulfillment as a particular kind of plant or tree and will give the correct conditions. Become an oaktree fast. Adjust the in. Its night shah. They awesome inherent values. The are being expressed one. Human beings is highly socialized apes so many ways of expressing qbr son values are promoted necessarily son traits. Instincts are denied control. Inhibit prohibit in some cases. And that would seem to be a prerequisite of order and ben referred to an early compensation that already. We're in territory. When no one can claim objectivity no one can claim to have a unique insight. And what all of us is religious people doing ovens saying no i believe i'm interpreting divine sublime and absolute will and. I'm doing that now. Culturally the from an academic or scientific perspective. This is reality from a religious perspective. No this is reality. My feeling is that well. I feel that this is the reality. These are my values. This is how i very strongly one thing. I believe they most strongly. Is that my spiritual values for me. They are to make me a better person in the world. So that i am non-judgmental so i am compassionate so i am kind so i am understanding so the i don't think the my views my values my will and the most important thing because i recognize myself that there are states when that is how i feel that there are states in may. We're all i care about is what i want and what i believe. An eye require a degree of openness of fluidity of the ability to learn alter change evolve. I recognize that there are people that have wholly different perspective on the role of genetics and biology in identity the irs. I recognize that against your point earlier about the underlying values as opposed to the tip of the iceberg. I try to do when i'm in a position of dow is is i ask again or investigate again. What do i mean by god. What do i mean by love. And if i can somehow rationalize something as potentially nebulous and diffuse why means a sense of union of oneness wherever i love a football team or a country or perish shoes or my partner or my kids. There's a sense that we are somehow hole and one and part of my spiritual journey is to find a perspective where i feel this oneness fraternity brotherhood sisterhood with people potentially with all people though even when i disagree with them i recognize that there is a oneness that there is a shared sense of community and the more we understand about the universe and dark matter and potential other life forms the more. It seems preposterous for me to augment for five and hunkered down in positions of opposition ism and contrary ism and conflict so for me. I recognize that many things about me. That seem peculiar and unique recognize that there are things about me that seem universal when it comes to power and the issuing of well i most strongly believe in is as you have tagged earlier. Localism and community. I want to believe around people. That wanna live the way the i wanna leave and i i. My prayer is that there are a set of universal principles. The wherever you fall on these various spectra of identification whether these traditional conventional ideas ovary modern ideas if we have record wyckoff sesame street ethics kindness compassion tolerance then. It's not going to bother me. It's all going to bother me because you okay. Yeah you can express yourself and be yourself however you want to be and when we announced tack in terms like universal surely what you mean by. That is don't harm off a people. Don't take for people stuff. Let people live how they wanna live. And it's very difficult because because there are certain platforms structures and institutions that have been south in particular ways. Mutual friend acquaintance. Jp would say what culture does is creates biopsies for its dominant or majority population. That's what it's supposed to do. What else can it do. This and this is where we get to the question that i was asking you about. What do you think the rules of the road offers society. So i agree with you. That on a general individualistic level. That you know the sort of basic rules for the road treat other people with decency be nice to other people Those go a long way i. I'm not sure that they go all the way. Because you do eventually run into areas where you are demanding from somebody else. That your version of niceness is actually a demand on them and this happens all the time in societies and that brings you to the question of what are the rules of the road for society Sort of bland universalism Can sometimes actually degrade into adam mystic living. I if if all you have everybody is be nice to one another. And then everybody has its subjective. Definition of what niceness is renaissance me being loyally. Some people's version of niceness involves. I have to you know for example violent my own religious scruples in order to quote unquote be nice. And maybe my version of niceness is that you have to leave me alone to perform my religious scruples and bothers you in some way. What are the rules for road when these when these sort of values come into conflict with one. Another is the question for for how societies live together because universalism is is really nice on sort of a sort of a vague level but as we see in western societies unless.

I was seven years old when I first played it all out. So with my sight with my city that's her grandmother is a sacred site. For Muslims. This is the equivalent to attacking the Church of the Holy See Poker for Christians or the Temple Mount for Jews. Israel attacks it during Ramadan. Where's the outrage? Mr President? Here's the problem. It's the Palestinians who went up there and blockaded the mosque and put up rocks and boulders. And then they tried to throw those rocks and boulders and fireworks that they have the Israeli forces but proceeded to leave. Propagandist on behalf of terrorist groups everywhere. Well, well done receded so late, well done, I'll get. Meanwhile, Joe Biden apparently hasn't buyer's remorse about Xavier Becerra. According to Politico, Xavier Becerra spent decades urging congressional leaders to support liberalized illegal immigration. But he's having a different notice. Health secretary responsible for caring of upwards of 21,000 migrant Children Sarah has argued for maintaining the historically low trump era cap on refugee admissions to the United States for fear of stretching the already thin resource is of his department's refugee office. His insistence on a more cautious approach to immigration policy, has, moreover, contributed to his shaky standing with some quarters of a fast paced White House, where senior aides have spent weeks pressing the health Department to speed its intake of thousands of Children at the southern border and bristled at what friends and skeptics alike described as bizarre as that times deliberate matter. Sarah, in the meantime, has been privately frustrated by the White House is rushed to ease a series of immigration guardrails well before he was confirmed to lead HHS. Moves contributed to the already growing building with southern border and since it's saddled with Sarah with managing the fall out from a record influx of asylum seekers. So it looks as though basically the White House is crapping on the stair upstairs crapping on the White House, and all of that makes perfect sense because they're all bad at their jobs. They're all terrible that their jobs so trouble in paradise already, and we're like, five minutes into this administration. All right, let's do some of your questions in the mail bag. Caleb says on the issue of Double Taxation. House Capital gains tax legal I can at least understand the argument for other taxes, since the money is being taxed for different reasons, But capital gains to my understanding our attitude income, which is taxed, But then the same money is tax again. For the same reason it was tax for income. It seems that blatantly illegal Matter rich person but would like to be capital gains tax seems to be one of the biggest obstacles between myself and that cool Well, I mean, it's legal because there's nothing that explicitly bars the capital gains tax your family income tax under the 16th amendment to the Constitution. Right? It is a crappy policy. Capital gains taxes are crappy, crappy policy. Anuses. Well, I've just finished the movie. Run. Hide fight. It was way beyond what I expected. You guys have done an unbelievable job. I honestly didn't think it was possible. I was on the edge of my couch the entire time. Appreciate that Run. Hide. Fight is right. And we have some excellent stuff. Entertainment stuff coming down the pike for you as well in the near future. The anuses. What legal avenues and steps is federalism grant Red states to protect themselves against the undue burden of propping up a failing blue states. The federal government can easily raise and lower taxes across the board. But aren't there safeguards against the feds? Of course of Lee redistributing wealth? What point will conservative states have legal standing to argue? They ought to be protected from the cost of these radical policies spilling over state lines? Well, this is one of the problems with the federal government. Having this direct taxation power, the government just goes right to the citizens. So it's not as though Florida is paying California's The citizens of Florida are paying the citizens of California, for example. Now there's certain areas where this isn't true, and it's going to lead to real legal cases. So, for example, One of the at one of the conditions attached to bailout money under the Biden stimulus package for state is that states are not allowed to cut their taxes, and that's just a redistributive thing. Now you're saying that states can only take the money? If they maintain tax policy that makes them less competitive relative to other states. That is a direct attempt to stymie states in their ability to to do what it is. They're designed to do. So there you could have some lawsuits for sure. He says. I have a question thankfully, generally answered them all on from small town in Canada wanted to encourage you to keep up the fight against left. Most of what I see your country's going through leaves me shocked when people decide it's okay to treat each other in these ways. It is someone spread over here. Thankfully, not too much. Well, I don't know. I saw a story. The other day about a Canadian pastor being arrested for the great crime of opening up his church, during covered So it seems like Canada's got problems of its own. Lady says you talk about how important romances in marriage. Can you have tips about what helps keep the romance alive in a relationship? Okay, so there are a few you actually have to plan for the romance. This is one of the things about once you have kids. Once you have kids, everything is planned. You actually have to plan times. So a lot of romance when you're younger, and when you don't know case is about spontaneity. Okay, pick up and we're gonna go to a hotel for weekend. Good dinner tonight. No problem. When you have kids, everything has to be planned. The kids have to do their homework. It's time to get ready for bed. You have to make sure they're up in a particular time in the morning, right? All of this sucks spontaneity from a relationship. Spontaneity is a real key. Well, you can be spontaneous, but they have to be within plan times. This is a big thing. So there are a few things that I think are real, really important. One is you have to prioritize each other is a couple. That means they My wife and I. We have not done enough of this, but we need to get away for a weekend. Once in a while. We need to get away for a night once in a while. Just go to a hotel for a night. Even though we have very nice house. It's not about that. It's about having some privacy and about not being interrupted at all times of the night by our Children that that is important. Also You have to do little things for each other and show appreciation romance is very much about appreciation. And then what? I would tell you that at night, Take some time before you actually kind of get into full relaxation mode to be romantic to city general with each other to do other things, right. Do that first in the evening because otherwise what ends up happening is you put the kids to bed. They're like, Oh, God, I'm so tired and you kind of eat dinner. You plop down in front of the TV you just need to zone out for like. 30 minutes and 45 minutes. And next thing you know you're going to sleep. Yeah, that sort of stuff. It's not your fault. It's just the way life works. You really do have to plan this stuff out in advance, which is strenuous but worth it if you can do it You know something in my wife and I have sort of realized my practice that you just need to do already In the second, we get two more of your questions in the vaunted Ben Shapiro show male back first.

"shapiro" Discussed on Live Happy Now
"Welcome to episode two hundred, Sixty, nine of live, happy now. This is Paula Phelps and I'd like to thank you for joining us again this week. If you've ever had a sudden feeling of distress that triggers your fight or flight response. Then you know what it's like to have your emotions hijacked. And, if that's something you've experienced recently, you're not alone this week. Clinical psychologist and mindfulness expert. Dr Shauna Shapiro Returns to talk about how current times might be affecting your emotions, and what practices you can use both individually and as a family to regulate them. Sean thank you for coming back to talk to us on live. Happy now I'll. I'm delighted to be back. Thanks caller, will you and I talk back in? February and things were so much different. There is no way we knew what was ahead of us, and we talked about your fantastic book. Good Morning, I. Love You and the reason I wanted to invite you back today and talk to. To you is because you give so many great practices for mindfulness, and for managing things during difficult times and one thing that I kept going back to during this time. Is your practice on emotion regulation? So thank you for coming on because that's really something. I WanNa talk to you about today. I agree I. Think all of us can feel the impact of these times in our nervous systems. Systems on our notions in our words, and it's really important to have tools and practices to help regulate them and your practice on emotion. Regulation really explains how it starts, so I guess to begin with. Can you explain to us? What an image Ella hijack is so an a middle hijack is when kind of our fear centers is based in the <unk> overwhelms. Our prefrontal CORTEX are higher order. Order reasoning and so our ability to make wise choices as much hindered, and so that's mindfulness. Practices are so helpful is that the word mindfulness means to see clearly, and we wanna see clearly so we can respond effectively when something stressful happening or overwhelming are were afraid. It's really hard to see clearly, and then we make poor choices, and so the first step to kind of either preventing or Rebounding mcdermot hijack is simply to name what you're feeling to simply say. I'm scared or I'm feeling stressed right now or I'm overwhelmed and research from Ucla showed that when you just name your emotion, it kind of puts a prefrontal cortex back in charge you, it kind of puts the seat seatbelt on the little teenager in the background, and it starts to calm down the body so simply naming it helps tain your. Your emotion, so that's the first step that I usually recommend to people I thought that was really interesting that just giving a name to something can have such a profound effect you. They know why that is well I. Think part of it is bad when you name it that means there's a part of you. That is witnessing it. There's a part of you. That is no longer consumed by or meshed with it. So. There's the awareness that knows your sad isn't sad, right? It's just aware the awareness that knows you're angry angry. It's just aware and so there's a laser to get a little distance from your motions, and you're able to witness them with greater perspective in greater clarity, and when you say talk about giving a name to it. Is that something you just do mentally? Is it something you write down? How do you go about defining what you're feeling? So you feel emotion. What's interesting is most people don't even really notice it until it gets pretty significant and so what I work with people on doing. To, notice the Sadler emotions, and then just gently naming them. Silently Stein out. Loud is also fine especially if you're with people. To let them know. We state our children. Use your words, and it's helpful with US too so to simply just notice I'm scared right now and in my own life it's amazing how often we just kind of pushed through emotions and don't pause to feel them, and so by naming it we create space for the emotion, and we also bring that higher order reasoning. Meta awareness back on board. And sometimes one of the things that I hear a lot right now as people don't even know what they're feeling because I was talking to someone I was actually talking about your book with someone because she was saying she's like I. Don't know what's wrong with me I. Don't know if I'm mad I. Don't know if I'm scared. I JUST WANNA cry. That's beautiful that she's even aware of that. Because you know often, people don't even feel what they're feeling, and so I, think the first step is to feel it then say maybe I am confused or I just feel sad or I don't even know. Know what I'm feeling! It's so complex, but I think the process of mindfulness is about bringing our attention and our presence, and our kindness to whatever feeling even are not sure what it is, and that's an act that takes practice. It takes a lot of practice, and that's really what I tell people I was really attention of my book is that you're not supposed to be perfect all this? These are practices that you learn and the good news is science shows. It's never too late. It's never late to literally re architect your brain and cultivate these resources so that we can meet the current challenges.
"shapiro" Discussed on Dogma Debate
"Here's how he starts. His most recent show Republicans brought up in the Senate a police reform bill and the police reform bill didn't give Democrats everything they wanted. For example, it did not outright. Ban Choke chokehold. It said that departments has to take a look at chokehold and decide how they would be applied, and the federal government would make its funding contingent on particular procedures. Put in place with regard to. To choke, hold now. They're a bunch of Democrats who think the chokehold should outright ban because either they are mischaracterizing what a chokehold is. There's a difference between a chokehold and a and a mission hall, or they're trying to deprive law enforcement of a tool, the sometimes require in order to make a situation more quiescence. Okay, hold on so right there the difference with a choke hold and a submission hold. What is he talking about? I know he's hinted at being a part of Brazilian Jujitsu. I have to. You know that some submission is called. It's called a rear naked choke. You're squeezing the carotid arteries of someone to reduce the oxygen flow to their brain, so yeah, if you have your bicep on the right carotid artery in your forearm, pressing into the left side. If you, do it properly it safe. The problem is most police. Officers are not trained to do it properly. You can watch the training. You can see them fight people in public I, personally have been a Ju. jitsu Jim where cops come to fight. They do not understand the actual and breakdowns of Brazilian Jujitsu on how to properly apply a rear naked choke. They don't do it correctly. They will crush your larynx. They stop your breathing. That's not what choke is supposed to do. Okay, and let's be clear. Clear to that. That <hes> I think just stopping. The colts is also misguided even on the Democrat side I think it's misguided I think it needs to talk about bodyweight on. Someone's back the ability to breathe while you're leaning on. Someone's back as fixation we need. We need to ban all sorts of things like that, but I don't think it's fair to say that. They're mischaracterizing a chokehold from being a submission hold because nobody's preventing cops from putting someone in an arm bar. Let's be clear about that. That as opposed to being forced to use deadly force in a case where somebody is resisting, arrest me, and this is really one of the instances in which officers you see, an officer and the officer is trying to put somebody into submission. Hold read they're trying to. They're trying to deprive oxygen to the brain, not the personnel, or at least put the person and more quiet than state. The alternative to that is the person continuing to thrash around struggle. Maybe grabbed. The officer's got bent so often talks in. In absolutes he is so black or white absolutes. You're going to hear him today. Say things like every single time. It's not true all they want. It's not true. These these are Straw man after Straw man after Straw man of the Democratic position and I WANNA. Be Clear I'm not a registered. Democrat I'm an independent I consider myself a liberal I, don't I don't say I'm a leftist and I'm certainly not on the right and here lately. I can't even say have even been in the center I'm. Left of center, but I'm a liberal if you have any of credibility. You should pay attention to rappaport rules, and if you don't know what that is, look up Dan Dan. It read his books and or Google rappaport rules, and the very core of reports rules are. If you don't fully understand someone else's argument, you're not yet ready to create an argument against him. You should be. You should be able to state their argument back to them in a way that they say. Wow, yes, that's the way I feel and I. Wish I would put it that way once you can do that to someone then you're willing to make an argument against them. But these blind strokes of of all and and absolutes are just crazy, and that's not the alternative. Ben If you walk into a situation assuming I either have to choke you or shoot you because I'm an occupying force here to make the streets. then. Yeah, you're going to be violent. Either way these yeah, the choke holds pretty. Damn Nice when you put it that way. That shouldn't be the cops job.

"Shapiro okay so the the question is how seriously we should balance these considerations and politicians never want to tell you about trade off this is just the role of politicians politicians will never tell you about a draft every policy is one hundred percent good and zero percent bad and then in reality of course the trade off no matter a great deal the fact is that for all the people are ripping on lockdown protesters those protesters are pointing out that there are serious considerations to be had here that like it or not there is no treatment for this thing on the horizon there's a new study out today from China it has some serious problems with the study suggesting that this this drug from Gilead sciences that people are very optimistic about last week may not in fact the all that effective in fighting this thing that looks like hydroxy Clark with an early an early look at it may look more optimistic than it actually was this early studies suggest that run disappear it is not nearly as effective as people were hoping that would be in the stock market has been taken because of it well there's no there there and there are no therapeutics that are that are directly on the horizon that tamped down the death rate from the same and that means that we are going to have to accept it radically elevated notion of risk in our society as compared to before and that means they're gonna have to be responsible about how we go back to the market and we do have to take into consideration that we put tens of millions of people out of work we take their livelihood away from them when you shut down businesses and their families have been in for decades and when you do that by both government fiat and market changes that you need the markets respond as fast as possible not only because you need a market rebound but because you need to know what the new normal looks like some people can shift to the industries that actually are growing right you will see growth in online industries you will see growth and delivery services you will see growth in any area of manufacturing that can then be conveyed to people at their homes there is a dramatic shrinkage in terms of retail yes Informatik trinket in terms of travel because your medic trinkets in terms of in terms of entertainment outside the home right theaters it didn't but we're not going to know that some people actually get back out to work the market provides you the feedback loop that allows the actual economy to Josh and create new jobs in the areas where people still want to consume but that's what we need to happen right now and that's why it's so ridiculous to watch people like Andrew Cuomo basically suggest that there is no countervailing concerns that those who are concerned about the economy are fools and the only concern here is death that's just a lie it's not true he knows it's not true if you thought that way if you thought differently he wouldn't be talking about opening anything up in New York state but he is talking about opening things up he's lying how can the queue or be.

"This is the Ben Shapiro said that a lot to get to today a little bit later on in the show we'll get to the unfolding a question of how much of Ukraine actually interfered in the twenty sixteen election Democrats say not at all the trump administration says a lot but we begin today with all of the updates on impeachment gate twenty nine three for all the talk about an impeachment inquiry we're supposed to put all of our focus into impeachment nothing is actually fundamentally change here is what any McCarthy right he says there is no impeachment inquiry there are no subpoenas they're not the fault if you think a formal inquest is under way and the legal process has been issued misimpressions completely understandable if you've been taking in media coverage in particular reporting on a hearty September twenty seventh letter from house Democrats presuming to direct secretary of state Mike Pompeii okay I'm paying a citation for instruction to cooperate in their demands to depose state department officials and review various records the letter is signed by not one but three committee chairmen remember your elementary math though zero is still zero even one multiply by three what is portrayed as an impeachment inquiry is actually a just a made for cable TV political soap opera the house of representatives is not conducting a formal impeachment inquiry the country's is Andy McCarthy and rational Democrats are conducting the twenty twenty political campaign the house has not voted as a body to authorize an impeachment inquiry what we have here a person the efforts proceeding under the instant access of speaker Nancy Pelosi and raise the profile but not the legitimacy of the same impeachment inquiry and there are no sabemos as secretary come hell observing his fittingly tight response on Tuesday what the committee chairman issue was merely letter in something involving not withstanding the letter is nothing more than an informal request for voluntary cooperation legally it has no compulsive power if anything it is rife with legal deficiencies and McCarthy's pointing out here that all the talking he's been great Democrats haven't actually utilized the power that they have in Congress in order to subpoena members of the executive branch why well because they don't get litigated in the courts because that's where the stuff works you subpoena somebody in the White House the White House has now and then it ends up in court and the court hash it out but that leads to delay instead what the Democrats are doing is they are issuing fake subpoenas basically request for people to show up if White House as hold up a second they then accuse the White House obstruction this appears to be manufactured when the Democrats are now using a wide variety of theories in order to justify the push for impeachment as it turns out that the quid pro quo arrangement supposedly evident from the trump Ukrainian president's Lansky's phone call falls apart as turns out that allegation doesn't make any sense in the absence of any information that you Craney leadership believed that the president was withholding military aid as that becomes clear the Democrats are now shifting the narrative on impeachment maybe the impeachment is not about the Brickell afterall maybe it's about president from melting off babies out president from yelling at the whistleblower maybe it's about obstruction of justice well what if the Democrats basically box themselves in here what if you had to close the one off half cocked because she believed it was important to get her based on board because she couldn't hold back any longer because Nancy Pelosi isn't actually in control of this process remember earlier this year Nancy blows you tried to take out this one earlier this year Nancy Pelosi tried to marginalize the radicals in her mace and president trump basically prohibited her from doing that by attacking the radicals in her pace forcing her to rally around them well that meant the Nancy Pelosi is now subject to their whims and that means ironically the president trump unifying Nancy Pelosi with the radicals interbase led to this fellow impeachment inquiry was Jenny McCarthy writes standing committees do have subpoena power so why not use it well because if he does get litigated in court when the people or agencies on the receiving end of jacked Democrats want to have an impeachment show inquiry on television that one defendant's notified he's in court they certainly don't want defend their letter threatening obstruction the Democrats media's grads no the Germans admission that any failure by Pompeii to comply chuckle constitute evidence of obstruction of the house impeachment inquiry what a crock as McCarthy points out in criminal proceedings prosecutors constantly demand information and defense presumptively resist and then ends up in court is is can rational Democrats know all of this many of them are lawyers there is even partisan letters depose legally offensive threats rather than subpoenas because this is a show not impeachment inquiry subpoenas that don't work you're just beating about structure everyone knows their compulsory but everyone also knows they may be held up in court so what does it really looks like overall is the Democrats basically trying to drum up something something upon which they can get from in the public mind and I became eminently clear when it became clear that the whistleblower in this particular case was it probably coordinate with Adam shifts office before the whistle blower complaint was even elevated to the level of the inspector general of the.
