When it comes to climb attack we got some philanthropy somme is and Beta products and cities in the flood lead zone who need all of that and more from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would we're continuing our trip through silicon valley as part part of our climate tech series how we survive to find out what the tech industry is doing to develop solutions to climate change and at this point. I figured I should ask is it fair her to expect these private companies to make adapting to climate change part of their jobs. Mike Milky is with the Silicon Valley Leadership Group A trade group that represents most major tech companies and he says yeah it's fair. It's in their DNA. That's something that's a hallmark of Silicon Valley. Hallmark of a lot of our members is that when many folks see a problem a lot of the folks out here see an opportunity so far the pace of grabbing that opportunity is slow still mostly philanthropy and internal sustainability goals but just this week salesforce announced a new product the salesforce sustainability cloud would that lets companies track their environmental impact and risk over at Google. Kate brant is Google Sustainability Officer. She says there's a new tech industry taskforce for adaptation and resilience with Google and facebook genentech. PGE and Wells Fargo but near as we can tell it's so new it hasn't really met yet and this is a fairly new group about really our hope is that this can be a place to discuss regional impacts that we anticipate seeing being and also identify implement actions that we can take collectively to partner with communities communities in Silicon Valley say implements away. They are ready to be a market for new tech so I was reading an article last week. I think that a company came up with a way to do facial recognition on cows. This is Keri Rama now. The director of San Jose's as environmental services department. I think that's really cool but it'd be great. If if there was something that could maybe help us more locally and and solve things like a smart. Levy where you know we we get early warning that waters are rising over at Google. Kate brant told us the company is working on better flood forecasting using artificial intelligence in India not California and she pointed to some other Google climate tools still in Beta. How about the other big big tech companies in the valley like say facebook. Social media doesn't seem like an obvious place for climate innovation. I know but environmental economists Patrick Bailiffs that it's actually a gold mine so we observed through social media posts on twitter and facebook in this paper was that you actually see people's express cinnamon changing in in response to different temperatures. Betas used data from facebook and twitter to track people's emotional response to changing weather over time now we actually found Bela's through twitter her when we asked that company if it was doing anything around climate and technology bayless said he partnered with facebook for the research and used twitter's publicly available data now now. He says he's not sure he could get the same access from facebook anymore. That company is really crackdown since the Cambridge analytica scandal but he said social media companies could really help researchers tracked climate change implications if they organize their data and shared it in a statement facebook said it's working toward using more renewable energy and Said said the company is working on a number of projects that will ensure facebook's platform serve as powerful tools to support climate action as for other Valley Giants Alphabet you bet and apple both run their facilities on one hundred percent renewable energy and apple touted its energy efficient products and one barrier might be that the relationship between Silicon Valley cities and big tech companies just isn't Great Leslie. Berlin is a historian for the Silicon Valley Archives at Stanford University. She said tech companies used to be a lot more connected to the towns in the valley and early. HP Executive was on the Palo Alto City Council. What of apples early founders was on the Cupertino no planning commission but these days we've just seen a general suspicion of these companies that have led to a sense that it anything good that they're trying to do is done from a cynical sort of perspective. Berlin says housing costs and traffic and suspicion of tech overall aw have eroded trust between tech and the residence of Silicon Valley. They're just not talking and I asked her if there was any precedent for government and companies coming coming together to solve a big problem well what would you call the Internet okay so all we need is something on the scale L. of building the Internet but for climate and now for some related links in other stories in this series we have brought up the idea that employees within tech companies might help push climate tech and we will get a physical demonstration of that on Friday September twentieth reportedly employees at Google Amazon Microsoft and facebook will walk off the job Friday as part of global climate change protests the tech protests seems to have started at Amazon which has fewer goals than some of its peers around reducing its own carbon emissions at data centers or in its deliveries recently there were reports about the company courting oil and gas companies with a customized version of Amazon web services which is it's cloud service division after that Kazan said it would buy new wind farms it is also announced a goal to make fifty percent of its deliveries net carbon zero by twenty thirty in two thousand Eighteen Amazon. AWS quote exceeded fifty percent renewable energy usage for the year a reminder here that Google and apple a hundred percent facebook spoke about seventy five percent and Amazon doesn't have a timeline for expanding its renewables use no words as it report its sustainability metrics like other companies do employees at Amazon want the company to stop working with the fossil fuel industry stopped donating to politicians and lobbying groups that denied the effects of climate change and commit commit to zero emissions by twenty thirty not through offsets that can be tricky as wired points out because a delivery service involved a lot of planes leans trains and automobiles on that note. There's actually kind of a provocative piece in the Guardian from Wednesday that says even though the tech industry is promising that digitisation tation is the key to a more efficient future. What we may actually need to do is D- computerize the piece argues that artificial intelligence and machine learning really just come down to millions of computers crunching trillions of bits of data using many many gigawatts of energy.

How Silicon Valley Will Look Different After the Pandemic
"Welcome to. It's all political the San Francisco Chronicle's political podcast. I'm Joe Gary, Holy, the chronicle, senior political writer and today. Our guest is Carl. Gorby no the CEO and president of the powerful Silicon Valley Leadership Group. As the organization, three, hundred fifty of the top companies in the valley. Carl stepping down from the organization after twenty three years, and he's got a lot to say, and as always Carlos Saint incomplete paragraphs because Carl is masterful in speaking of complete. We talk about how the corona virus pandemic will reshape Silicon Valley. You still need to buy or rent inexpensive place down there. Most people can work from home. Valley. Look like in twenty years. Let's find out. Here's my conversations with Carl Norden. Car Gaudino from your daughter's bedroom in your home and monster Sereno to my daughter's bedroom in Oakland welcome to. It's all political. I'M DELIGHTED TO BE ON. The podcast and both of our daughters will will probably charge us rent. Yeah, yeah, I, I would be expecting that bill so when we plan to have this podcast back in March and it was the world's a different place in many ways. and. Now I WANNA. Talk to you about how the Valley is going to be reshaped. Because of the pandemic facebook! Without decade more than half of its forty eight thousand employees would work from home. Twitter told its employees they could work from home indefinitely Google votes people. Go ahead to stay at home through the rest of the year. How do you see this reshaping Silicon Valley? This is going to have a profound impact on Silicon Valley and the innovation economy, and in many ways a positive impact. Whenever we have challenges we should also look for the silver lining those challenges, and if there's one thing that silicon valley is learning through covid nineteen is that when the doors lock, you check the window or you build a new door in the new doors going to be work arrangements, by which our employees can still thrive, and we can still have successful business outcomes. It's going to be in areas like Kello telehealth. Areas like online learning and digital inclusion, and these are going to be positive aspects of all the challenges that we're going through I I know that the lack of traffic right now is also leading to clearer skies and cleaner roadways. Who would have predicted that we might be able to tackle our greenhouse, gas and pollution issues and and. Traffic Challenges in ways that we wouldn't have predicted months ago, so there's GonNa. Be some good from this and again. One of those as you just stated is how we work, and where we work for those jobs that can be done remotely, and we have to remember not all. About what what the future of real estate is going to be in the valley and in San Francisco for that matter Oakland Riley? If you can work from home day. Do they need those big office spaces or they going to need those office spaces, so people can s- those same footprints people can spread out in. This is going to be a positive aspect. As well of this challenge in that we know that nonprofits, a lot of startups have found the bay area almost on affordable to participate physically in the innovation economy. And as their becomes perhaps less of a need for as much office space as we have had and the cost about office space in the bay area that mean naming more opportunities for others in business for profit or nonprofit to be able to afford to be here. I'm thinking of our own small nonprofit. The Silicon Valley Leadership Group thirty two full time equivalent employees, and when we do return to a physical presence, it will probably. Be With even more liberal worked from home policies than we already had, and we were already quite liberal in that regard, so when our lease comes up in September of twenty twenty two. Are we going to need as much space? I don't think we're going to. Free up space for other small businesses and nonprofits I think it will. So that would be so you're into spending dropping real estate prices. Does that mean tech companies or anticipated themselves more regional hubs? You know it might. do something about the traffic you alluded to and I know it's been longtime concern of the leadership group We get to see the tech hubs in Stockton or Kansas City for that matter. is that to reshape the valley in that way. Will I? We've always felt that. While silicon valley, the bay area are still be epicenter of innovation on Earth, and that's by very strong data points that it is that we think that other regions states nations should also have thriving innovation economy hubs so It's not a a feeling of threat when I say that having innovation or Hubs or employees in other locations is a bad thing, but we also have to remember a couple of things I. Not every job can successfully be performed in a remote environments whether that's high-tech, low tech or no tech, so we do have to figure out in our current COVID, and even a post cove it environments how we returned in a way that is safe for our employees to be together and do their work. Work Second. Let's not forget what we used to call. Water Cooler talk in that whether it's in the newsroom at the San Francisco Chronicle or the hallway of the Silicon Valley leadership, group? There is so much creativity with our. Our contact is people in those random conversations that we have when we're together in a physical space in third, we can never forget that not everyone's home. Environment is conducive to productive work day. Joe We were talking about our daughters. I have three young children, and it is. A challenging at best to have them as my office. Mate's on a daily basis. We feel the same way I hear you, brother. What is the what so, what do you think? The Valley looks like Insa- twenty forty. Your you've always been edited I about the future with A. Corner of the world looks like what does it look like? And how is it different than today's? Will I? We have already decided that a lot of the EH issues that we've been working on for. Decades may have solutions that are a bit different. We continue to work. with a regional economy on regional commute patterns and regional solutions relative to transit will still need to do that, but we're also recognizing that with the rights, attitudes and accommodations for alternative work arrangements that we can supplement our efforts for traffic, relief and transit alternatives with much more liberal work alternatives, so that's going to be a part of the Solution Second Housing and homelessness isn't just A. A challenge in the bay area. It's a challenge. The entire state of California after thirty years of neglect of building the of homes needed just to meet our own population growth on a yearly basis well I think we're GONNA. Find that we're going to make that somewhat better if we continue to build homes, but recognizing that homes may not always need to be as close to job sites as we thought before March sixteen shelter in place, so we're. We're GONNA see a lot of issues addressed differently, and potentially in very positive ways in a post covid climates, but Big changes are going to have a more difficult time resonating until and unless we have treatments and jurors cove it right right Let's speaking of transportation issues. Let's talk about Bart. You've philosophy couple of decades. You've been one of the prime movers to bring Bart to. San Jose and that Station will open June thirteenth shortly after recording this. But because of the pandemic, these trains are you know eighty five percent empty? Nobody's wants to ride the train right now. I think it's a petri dish for the for the virus. I'm even concerned about my myself going back to work. but in the systems running out of money to are you concerned that the that the pandemic will reshape public transit as we? See it now and how will do so? In it so important that we recognize the Lens in the power of now, but we also have to remember the promise of tomorrow, because whether we're talking about cal train that has been successfully running since eighteen sixty three, serving three counties along the peninsula or the Bart System. These are great transit systems. That will be great once again as we move in a past covid. So we can't get to locked into what today looks like when we know, these systems take years, and some times decades to build, and that as we get past the challenge of Covid, now that we know that we're still going to need a transit for both the transit, dependent population, as well as people like you and I, who as we return to some sense of normalcy would prefer a car or a CAL train car to a stalled car on Bay area's freeways. A here's a big concern I have joe in the current climate as shelter in place slowly lifts. If all of us are getting back into single occupant cars, we're going. Going to true. We have car Magadan in the bay area. We are going to need those alternative work arrangements that we talked about earlier, but we're also going to need to find these safe solutions for how we move people in this region, and we have hundreds of thousands of people who are transit dependent, and if we leave them literally at the curb and act as if they can just jump into a car when they don't own a car or have access to a car, then we're going to be failing hundreds of thousands of our fellow citizens and residents in this region, so bart is going to rise again so CAL TRAIN SF. Vga We need to make sure that they survived through this economic crisis, which has turned in for them to be a fiscal crisis, as well is. The is the leadership group in again. The Leisure Group represents three hundred fifty top companies in in the valley It's three fifty correct we don't. We don't have any more or less. Yes, it's about three hundred fifty briefed okay okay. Is going to do anything to to. Are you considering supplementing the Public Transit Systems? Are you are user any way you can raise money for them? I knew it's it's vital to the way to to making the valley work. Such time question Joe for Nine Years Since twenty eleven. We have been working to ensure that cal. Train grows the way that we all know that it's capable to grow before Cova of course, so marched data. CAL train carries about sixty two thousand weekday passenger trips. The Am PM commutes in both directions are jammed packed. We all know that were packed in like sardines on Gal rate. It has the potential through their business plan to triple in ridership from sixty two thousand weekday passenger trips to a hundred and eighty thousand weekday passenger trips, and since three out of five cal train, writers are choice riders. They owned cars. They're making a choice to get out of their cars. Just picture the difference that makes on highway one at one to eighty El Camino reality in all the linked corridors when you suddenly have nearly a hundred and eighty thousand folks who have cars out of their cars and onto cal train cars that is tremendous, so we have tested nine surveys over nine years almost all of them polling above the two-thirds threshold for an increase. In revenue to triple the ridership on CAL train, we're about to go out with another poll to find out if in this climate that people still will see the long term and a willingness to invest in transit solutions, and Oh, by the way, the sixteen thousand direct and indirect jobs that will produce when so many of our neighbors have lost their jobs, so the benefit of something that actually creates jobs while helping the rest of us in a post Kobe climate. Get to our jobs, so you sir, pulling other another tax on on though be a transit oriented tax To help CAL train in, you've used this analogy as well in the past, but not too long ago. crossing the Golden Gate Bridge and seeing the plaque that that work was done. In the climate of the A depression done by visionary leaders who knew there would be a better day and they could see pass. The Depression Kaz that work was done from nineteen, thirty, three to nineteen, thirty seven, and if they hit, said Oh my goodness, the economy is a shambles with can't do anything big or visionary. We wouldn't have the Golden Gate Bridge, but that actually put people to work and helps tens of thousands of people every day. Get to work his those folks had vision to look pass the power of now, but look forward to the province of the future. With more my conversation with Carl after this short break. Hey Audrey Cooper here editor in chief of the San Francisco. Chronicle and we've ramped up the news coming at you from fifth emission, except not the physical that the missions. We're all working at home. The fifth and mission that is our flagship news podcast were interviewing anyone with anything to say about the coronavirus so that you have the latest information as soon as we know it, so check it out. FIT The mission wherever you get your podcasts. More of my conversation with Carl Gordon. Let's talk about something that's very recently now, and that's president. Trump the recently tweeted in reference to the ongoing protests about racism and police brutality, said quote when the looting starts, shooting starts Twitter. Put a label on that. To cautionary label, facebook leaded Stan twitter fact, check president trump about misleading statements. He made about vote by mail. FACEBOOK did not. FACEBOOK CEO Mark Zuckerberg said he won't do that because he doesn't believe that. in facebook being quote, an arbiter of truth. Is facebook wrong here to let the President's statements sedan. It's always fascinating, because we have to make individual decisions whether as people or as institutions, but I will focus on is what is the leadership group doing a? We are reaching out in the last twenty four hours to our member companies CEO's with two messages one. We need to stand up and speak up for what is right and against what is wrong. Racism is wrong. We cannot be on the sidelines in this in this situation, so we in less than twenty four hours well over a hundred CEOS. Struggling startups to global iconic brands are joining us in standing up and speaking up, but what we're GONNA do at the leadership group. Because talk is cheap, you have to walk the walk is we are already reaching out to key elected leaders and the faith community and and others in these social justice community who have been leading for years and decades of how do you help us? As an innovation economy community better understand the challenges and the solutions in our board meeting has completely pivoted for next week of whether the substantive ways that we can help with the underlying issues that innovation economy employers are uniquely suited to help address digital inclusion. online learning Food Insecurity Environmental Justice Housing Policies Transit Equity will. Be Re imagining our entire work plan informed by leaders throughout our community that we don't always dialogue with as we can to move forward, so we're going to stand up. We're going to speak up and we're going to step up. Because through these tragedies that have been happening across our country, we believe the time is uniquely right to change not only the dialogue, but the outcomes in these in these challenging issues that we face as a nation one of those challenges at the Valley's. Face for longtime. Despite many efforts to change is hiring people of color. It's still very low. Many companies many initiatives to to try to improve that. Do you think that the A it's almost like the the the pandemic might be able to help in a way. Because if there is more, there are more remote sites for companies, it might broaden the hiring pool it might be. People might not have to live. In sunnyvale or are Menlo Park where the or San Francisco or Oakland, where the high with a high cost of living, you might be able to live anywhere. You want in the country and do your job in Silicon Valley. Is that a do see that as a possibility. And I'm a firm believer that you lead by example, so I'm going to give a personal response as well as a professional innovation economy response on a personal response at how we leading through the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, as an employer, thirty two professionals passionate about making our region nation nation, a better place, and our own practices of making sure that a core value that plays out in our hiring practices and every aspect of our work through diversity, equity, and inclusion and so I. who we hire. What are bored looks like with our Executive Board looks like with our foundation. Board looks like we can't. Talk about diversity, equity and inclusion if we're not succeeding in those areas as well, we're very proud of what we've built. Seconds is. Goes to the heart of what you just said, how do we make sure that the rich diversity of our region is reflected in the hallways of our companies and one of the areas were very excited. About is our community college career initiative. We're partnering with Nineteen. Community College presidents and chancellors throughout the bay area that represents three hundred and sixty thousand students, seventy seven percent of which don't look like you and I. Go but there that they're people of Color fifty four percent are female in what we're doing a deep dive with those chancellor's and with our innovation economy CEO's. What are those job clusters that we all know that we have that. Don't require a four year or advanced degree, but could be done incredibly successfully with a two year degree, or even the right certified coursework that instantly propels people into incredibly strong, middle class and upper middle class careers within our. Our innovation economy companies. We've identified about nine job clusters like that because we know that if we can make sure that folks who already live here have already figured out the housing and traffic in other challenges of high costs, Bay area are equipped with the tools are community colleges can provide, and we get past that the mindset that everyone needs a four year or advanced degree to be in the innovation economy. We're going to be able to. To have a material impact on improving people's lives and livelihoods and helping our companies who sincerely want to have the rich diversity in their workforce for all the benefits that brings in the marketplace to to win on both sides, so you're going to be hearing a lot more about the community college to Career Initiative as a way that we much more deeply diversify our economy and diversify the people who work throughout the nation economy. want a couple more quick questions. Where where's the The leadership group on President Trump. I mean I know he has been A. The certainly, the big tax cuts help his. He been a a C been a good partner for the valley. Very similar to governor newsome's approach. The view of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group has an institution. Is that we can only be responsible for our own actions. And we will always treat others with professionalism and respect and do our best to move our country forward for all of our citizens. And We will continue in that vein, recognizing that we will take position strong positions on comprehensive immigration reform and other issues where our members and the leadership group as an entity are not in agreement with President trump and when the president. tweets against individual employers or institutions for our stand on issues like comprehensive immigration reform will continue to move forward with facts over friction and data over Dogma and do our best to make our case for what we believe is right, and we will do it in a way where we can look in the mirror and know that we treated everyone with respect, regardless as to whether we were treated with that same respect Carl. You're ever the diplomat I. You walk the tightrope. They're very well. The. On the other hand I've had just about all the Democratic presidential candidates bit on the podcast and to a person they are frustrated with much on in the valley and they they talk about regulating big tech and. Various degrees from breaking up big tech to using to regulating facebook companies like facebook like a media company for example or using antitrust laws. Where would you say to to folks who who have these concerns about? Some of the companies getting too big? And wanting to regulate them either through antitrust laws or Through as Media Company, what happy! And at our hearts. David Packard co-founder of hewlett-packard who created the leadership group back in the summer of Nineteen, seventy seven. Our goal is to build bridges rather than burn them down and whenever we hear of leaders of any political. Party, or ideology attacking the innovation economy our goal is come. Let us reason together. Let's talk through what your concerns are. Let's make sure you have the facts. You need to make thoughtful decisions as policymakers because when we hear Oh. Let's just break-up quote, unquote, big companies or big tack it. It fails to recognize the power of the markets. Look at who kept was even a couple of decades ago in you'll find that. The graveyards of innovation are filled with folks who were considered big companies who missed an innovation who lost faith of consumers in the marketplace in they're gone. That is such a strong reminder that. The market so often will course correct? The second thing that I should be bashing my space like that. And there are so many variables of companies that that didn't stay. Straw didn't stay innovative and didn't stay in existence. In and you think of. It whether you're looking at Europe or or other places, the innovation economy is here because. The strength of competition still works so whenever we have a chance to sit down with voices who think in in quite simplistic ways, if I may that. Why don't we just break up? Big Companies Based on arbitrary decisions like? How many employees they have with their market, cap is What their annual revenue is those rebate reasons to break up a company. Why are we penalizing folks for being successful in the marketplace? Let's think through this together. What are you actually trying to achieve? If. It's press okay I. Get that you're running for a high office. You're looking for a press, but if it's progress that we're actually trying to make to keep our country as innovative as possible for both job, creation and innovation than let's separate that out. I'll give an example I often hear in earlier portions of the presidential debates attacks on biotech and pharmaceutical companies will who's leading the way now for treatments and cures to covid nineteen. Is it some generic drug company somewhere? That's never invested diamond and taken the risk of research and innovation who hasn't bet billions of dollars and and. A decade or more going through the FDA process of approval. No, it's not the generics. It's the risk taking innovators and their employees who were coming up with solutions to the current global pandemic that we're in. We're talking about Gilead and Genin tack and Jazz, pharmaceutical and other great companies that are racing for solutions to this issue that the generics that are also often trumpeted. By political candidates will never do because they'll never take those risks. one more question is nuts about how the the trade war with China is hurting the valley There, there's a new twist and turn every day. What are your concerns about this going forward? And that's another one similar to this situation today. C. E. O.'s standing up speaking up in stepping up for what is right, but in your paper, the San Francisco Chronicle as well as other papers. In this region, we invested in full page ads as well as substantive action. When we hear attacks, that are really in a phobic in nature of because when you think about what his built America notches the innovation economy but America. America was built through the brains, and through the Braun of immigrants, and whether that was my grandmother coming from Sicily as a little girl without a word of English, just two generations ago or people from. China who have led to job, creation and innovation here. But I think of people like Kinsey format in Jerry Yang of Yahoo in Eric, von of zoom and so many others who risked everything to come from communist China because they wanted to be Americans. We should be excited about the innovation and job creation that these hardworking creative and courageous immigrants have brought to America's economy and to our communities, and it's one of the things that makes me so proud to be a bay area residents affiliated with the innovation economy. Fifty four percents of the engineers fueling Silicon Valley's innovation economy weren't blessed to be born in the United States, but they were courageous enough to come here. Often study here, create and innovate here we should be. Humbled by that every day of how fortunate we are not attacking in any way, Chinese immigrants or immigrants from anywhere in the world who WANNA come here for a better way of life, and by doing so made our lives better here in America, but but in terms of economics, what are your concerns about the, but the the trade war and were. What does it hurt the valley? There's been a venture capitalist deals in terms with the venture. Capital from China has fallen. In the valley, what are your? What are your concerns about that? What we've learned about? Trade wars is is like a boomerang that when you put on tariffs, you're not really hurting the company that you're attacking because like a boomerang that comes back and hits American taxpayers and consumers with a higher cost of goods with implications on jobs that hurts America, and so we have to remember that these issues are complex and nuanced, and we can't look at some plastic win. Lose solutions when we should be always working to awards win, win solutions and and causing higher. Higher prices for Americans on goods is not a solution especially in an economic downturn. That's going to help hardworking American families Karl. Thank you so much you are! You're retiring from the leadership group soon and we do we have. Do you have a date on not supposed to be while back, but I think you've got to. You got extended extent. Push that out a little bit. What's what's the latest on that Joe Thank you and is my wife Leslie reminds me with a laugh that with three young children and a mortgage. There is no retiring. This something fans. And, yes, I announced on January seconds my board. asked if I could stay through a successful national search. They thought that would take four months then, Kovic, yet, and I let my board know that I was willing to stay to make sure. The success of my successor will regardless of who she or he might be, they said yes, so you're stuck with me Joe until probably at least the end of July a so I will have stayed seven additional months and if you need a great intern at the San Francisco Chronicle. You couldn't take the pay. Cut Carl the the the, but we also have to ask you. We always joke about this because you are a i. don't know what to say. A rabid exerciser a. you are a every time I, talked you. Ve already done a more in the previous three hours that I've done in a month. The last time he came up to the chronicle. You Rode Your bike from San Jose which is insane What what have you done so far this morning? To make me feel bad since I've only like a bowl of cereal. Walk the dog Yes, my wife and I historically or Ironman triathletes earth on runners and I only did that Joe because I fell in love with a woman who was on team, USA and and triathlon, competing in the world championships. That boy. If I'm if I'm going to be successful in dating this woman then I've got a join him or one of these other guys in spandex is going to steal her away from it. So. Yes, we We do sport we. We run for five days a week. We bike ride a lot and we're a chance to do that more with our kids right now. One of the other silver linings of shelter in place is more time with our families in our kids, so truth be told right after this podcast. We're going out for an hour. Run in, so I will sweat a little bit for you. Bury. Please do it for me because I don't I'll be I'll be sweating on deadline. That's about the only thing I'm going to be doing. Okay Karl.

This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would in Silicon Valley is the epicenter of technology and it's not just a metaphor for the tech industry it is they real place cities and businesses and people surrounded by a rising sea and at risk from increasingly extreme weather so for our series how we survive. I I wanted to know what the industry is doing to adapt and maybe helped the rest of us to we started here. This is a bicycle path south along the Stevens Creek trail it runs through mountain view. California where Google is located and it connects to a whole system trails that covers much of silicon valley at rush hour on a weekday. It's teeming with telecommuters people walking running scooting and riding their bikes. She has foldable bikes to to have to purple lights up. Yes yes mostly purple that is pat showalter and DEB Henningsson. We asked them to meet us here to basically show me how the tech industry the community climate change come together every day. Show alters the former mayor of mountain view and civil engineer. This is a steelhead stream steelhead trout see your head trial day have been coming here for thousands of years meanwhile DEB Henningsson the one with the purple bike and the purple hair for what it's worth. She has been biking to her job at Google on this trail every day for the past seventeen years alongside lots of other tech workers into it employees. Microsoft employees Louise and Google employees all use the trail. The Samsung campus that's over here is right next to the trail yeah so they're a bunch and you can see impacts of climate change all along. This trail shelter showed me deep cliffs that drop into the Creek because the sides of the bank have collapsed from cycles of drought and heavy rain and in the ravine in our trunks of really big trees that fell over during landslides well when you have the more droughts you the trees are stressed the banks dry in their more fry -able. It's easier to erode them. The trees fall in Stevens Creek trail is really kind of a little like a little microcosm of climate change and it's not just drought that will be a problem here. It's more heat waves wildfires storms and sea level rise the bay area you know we have the central feature being the San Francisco Bay and we have development that rings the Bay Mike Milky is with the Silicon Valley Leadership Group A trade association that includes most big tech companies. We have nine counties one hundred one cities over seven million people. We have a lot at stake from sea level rise. The campuses have facebook. Intel Cisco Google are all basically azzi level scientists call this region a bathtub as the water level gets higher it spills over the sides into the communities around it back on the trail. L. DEB Henningsson says she thinks tech companies know about the risks to their infrastructure and the community speaking for herself and not Google. She says that as they try I to adapt to the climate change that's coming. These companies are also cleaning up the mess that Silicon Valley left behind from the nineteen sixties to the eighties when the valley was actually manufacturing actioning computer chips and semiconductors using actual silicon and there is a lot of pollution leftover in fact Santa Clara County the heart of the Valley has is more superfund cleanup sites than any county in the US the companies that are here especially the companies that are large landowners. They recognize the mistakes of past I technology companies and are dealing with it in a lot of ways and I think the current generation of tech companies is all too aware of that history and wants to do better better kind of Tech Company. I asked Henningsson if maybe the biggest tech company should get together with governments and launch something like a space program for climate. I don't don't think we've seen a big tech company. TRY TO try to take a holistic approach. You know certainly Google certainly facebook. Certainly only apple have all done things to ensure that a large part of their energy is being generated. Sustainably like Google is completely carbon neutral company. I think facebook might be also There's a lot of efforts to do things like locate. Data centers not only in places where they're creating a lot of job opportunities but also being more environmentally effective by using cold water and ice and wind to do the work of cooling data data centers. I think that there are many employees inside tech companies that would like to do more with with their individual technology projects and apply them to climate change and I think you will start to see more of that becoming public but she says maybe one barrier is that climate change isn't just a concrete challenge that you can solve with the right code unlike space program. There is no cardinal goal there. There is no we're going to get to the moon in ten years and you know tech companies love goals and they love moonshot right. They love unachievable goals but it it usually is a concrete goal. You know that's the hard thing about climate change so far the big tech companies are mostly tackling climate change with our nonprofit divisions and and by making their own operations more sustainable but it's not part of the core business for most of them for the rest of this week will try to find out how that might change tomorrow. We'll go to the home of venture capital in the valley. Sandhill road to find out who is funding climate tech startups and who isn't and now for some related links actually this week. It's probably going to be more like related audio because we spent so much time in the field. We have all kinds of great stuff and we don't have time. I'm for it all on the radio but it also really helps. Tell the story of what's happening here out in the real world I ask shelter in Henningsson to give us some more specific details about about how else the climate crisis is showing up on the Stevens Creek trail you know the trees are really stressed by the lack of water and then they're kind of sitting ducks for all sorts of funguses and Beatles and various diseases and the caterpillars and caterpillars that they might be able to withstand we stand normally but because they're so stressed they can't there's this one type of moth that lays its eggs in. California coast live oak trees. which is what what do these trees are? They're all around us and when there's no rain all of the eggs can hatch and then all of the trees are full of caterpillars. This is bad for the trees because they're getting it's also bad for the people because some people are allergic to these caterpillars in fact in my daughter's school they have a giant coast live oak in the middle of there lunch area it gets roped off once a year and no one can sit under it because caterpillars are dropping and giving people rashes is that lovely so the balance between the trees and the caterpillars relies on regular rainfall and without the rain then the Caterpillar's takeover and then that damaged the trees and then there's the trees die than that causes this is further habitat loss and more erosion and also just damages the beautiful scenery that people enjoy and appreciate about this area every day. You know it's funny like we talk about about climate change and we talk about feeling it and it's not always I mean like you said it's not always fire. It's just like why do I have so many yellow jackets or whatever yeah like. Why are there caterpillars dropping out. Servino this Guy Yeah Cool. I think another thing that I've noticed over the years is certainly the increased population of the under house and the creek bad especially when it's dry becomes sort of a safe refuge area for people that are une housed. If we walked further up along the trail this way you would see a well worn path for people to get it down to trail and because the creek itself goes under many roads there are tunnels there and that becomes a place for people who are housed to hang out and be and that issue of people living in the creek as a problem all over the bay area certainly all over Santa Clara County there are literally communities that move in and live under specific bridges and then they have to move out during the winter and it's not good for them. They deserve to be Halston more humane main settings and actually you're going to hear more of both of these themes coming up all week this idea that climate change might not always show up as a big catastrophic event end but more like a series of small changes that have a big impact and also this idea that you really cannot separate the climate crisis from society whether whether it's housing or economic inequality or racism and you will hear much more on all of that in the coming days plus for a visualization of how much silicon valley is is at risk from sea level rise and other flooding and fantastic photos and video from the Stevens Creek trail.

Everybody the watch word of this program so far this week have been monetary policy interest interest rates and how the Federal Reserve uses them to manage this economy. We did an explainer on Tuesday. The feds economic policy tool kit set the music featuring figuratively chair Jay Powell on guitar. You should check it out marketplace dot org. There was the interest rate decision yesterday featuring chair Jay Powell actually talking about the way the Fed does what it does today. It's the E. C. D. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and is downgrade of its global growth forecast this morning to its lowest level since two thousand nine. Let that sink in for a second. There is the trade war yes but also there is this quote from the OECD's chief economist do not rely on monetary policy to do the job alone. The head of the European Central Bank says the same thing Jay Powell says a version of it because fundamentally central banks for all their power cannot do it all marketplace's. Mitchell Hartman explains what's going on here to try and spark some economic growth central banks from the US to Europe to China have been pulling out every tool in their toolbox of monetary policy. That's manipulating the money supply and interest rates which are now negative in some places and still says Karen Petro at federal financial analytics central banks are wrestling with the fact that they have done everything thing they could more than they ever thought they should and growth is at best in Nemec threat of recession is very real so they're kind of punting to the politicians Titians and saying now you need to use your tools fiscal policy to stimulate growth which generally means cutting taxes and boosting spending bending but not just any kind of spending says Jacob Kirkegaard at the Peterson Institute to invest more money building new real estate high hi speed Internet Education Research and development this kind of spending stimulates productivity and future economic growth here in the the US. We've already Donna version of fiscal stimulus. The massive 2017 tax cuts Douglas Holtz Aken at the American Action Forum says that's led to soaring debt and deficits. He says we should be investing in things like roads and bridges but bitter partisanship is left Congress in a state of fiscal paralysis Alexis. The poster child for this is the absolute agreement that we need an infrastructure program absolutely no ability to get it done in addition to more growth friendly fiscal policy policy central bankers and the OECD also want less confrontational more growth friendly trade policy to help recharge the global economy. I'm hi Mitchell Hartman for marketplace. This has been for a very long time the past three years aside a really low interest rate economy and even when the Fed raised rates by the way it was still a low low interest rate economy what that has meant among other things. Is that keeping your money. In something like a savings account. Almost hasn't been worth at bankrate dot com says the average average interest rate for savings account right now is a tenth of one percent a year so with the Fed having just cut rates for the second meeting in a row and with the reality only that nothing in this or any economy happens in isolation now what marketplace's Justin who has that one when interest rates go down banks start paying less depositors almost immediately says my Rigas via Darras at 'EM RV associates but she says banks don't move quickly to lend out money lower rates so I guarantee you that right now. If it goes into borrow money and says oh well the Fed just lowered rate. The bank is not going to say oh. You're right. Let me lower your rate very the interesting. She says because when the Fed decides to raise rates quite the opposite is true for banks. If interest rates go up they won't move quickly to raise the rate for depositors but they'll move quickly to raise the rate for any new borrowers savers heaven earned much since the financial crisis drove interest rates to historic lows but there are many online savings accounts with interest rates that rose to above two percent like ally bank savings account and Goldman Sachs's markets Greg McBride at bank rate says those accounts are more sensitive when rates fall. She benefited on the way up and you're gonNA give a little bit of that back on the way down. Banks will eventually actually start charging less for business loans after all. That's why the Fed cuts rates to begin with Kim. Balasko runs the commercial banking program at Marquette University. He says some banks. We'll have to turn to individuals again to make up for lost revenue. That's when you start to get into fee income or other services that the banks are offering to hopefully so you make up for it if rates stay low and morphe- START POPPING UP BLASCO says banks should start worrying because customers will shop around in New York. I'm Justin how for Marketplace Wall Street today up a little bit early on that a long slow slide to a mixed close. We'll have the details when we do the numbers. The trade trade talks picked up today. US China trade talks to be clear. It's been a long eighteen months as you know of tariffs flying back and forth next round of which by the way is set for October Uber Fifteenth Fresh American taxes on another two hundred fifty billion dollars worth of stuff that we import from China. We talk a whole lot on this program about what the trade war is doing to consumers here because we are paying the trump tariffs Chinese consumers though what's up with them. Marketplace Jennifer pack is in Shanghai on the streets of Shanghai. Some consumers complained China's retaliatory tariffs on. US goods are hurting. Many of the levees target American food products things like Pecans from the state of Georgia tariffs on these have increased forty percent since last year. The Honda who's passing out flyers to a busy lunchtime crowd says he loves the Georgia Pecans but doesn't buy them as often since the price went up even so sometimes when I really want to have someone I can't control myself all all just might be he's more worried about the cost of basic foods and that's affected by factors other than tariffs fruit and pork prices for example have seen double digit increases because of bad weather and African swine fever. I hesitate a lot when I buy things now and most Chinese consumers don't feel the effects of tariffs terraced on things like American Beef Cherries and whiskey because they are premium products the few who can afford them like ecommerce workers soon trend are less cost cost-conscious. He says he's just had a wage increase and besides if the tariffs push prices too high there are other options. Do you'll make up if we don't want to buy from the US you can import from Australia. There's not much difference really others like John J. O. In advertising says he wouldn't mind switching to Chinese brands so so so when I was young I thought imported goods. Were better now. I believe our Chinese products are good and the tariffs aren't just affecting products. The current trade tensions sometimes make things harder for anyone working on. US China Projects Elaine who studied at Ucla then return to China to work in film film. There are a lot less film on the you can do a lot of coal productions if you use a American crew. Sometimes I have problem. The trade. Tensions are assessor topic here so it's sometimes hard to know what people really feel about the tariffs challenge this retired government worker worries about official retaliation and would only give her surname. Chen when we asked what brands she buys. This was her response while missio thing. Would we buy Chinese my niece products. We're Chinese remember that although when it comes to her cell phone so he's a phone in Shanghai I'm Jennifer for pack for marketplace. Big United Nations Climate Change Summit is going to be here this weekend. New York technically runs through Monday. The problem is of course that conferences and reports in summits are great but climate change. The actual thing is already here more extreme weather bigger wildfires fire higher sea levels as well adapting to all that is a huge global challenge technical one to now. Who Do we know who's always ready to take on big challenges. how about Silicon Valley which as it happens is dealing with global warming right in its own backyard molly would the host of marketplace tech went to find out what big tech back doing about it. Silicon Valley is not just a metaphor for the tech industry. It's unreal place cities and businesses and people surrounded by a rising sea and at risk from increasingly extreme weather and I wanted to know what the industry is doing to adapt and maybe help the rest of us too so we started here.

What's in your wallet. This is marketplace. I'm Kai resolve this next story. Worry brought to you by that little something extra. You have to pay when you buy something. In most states you go to the store you buy a pack of gum or you go to a dealership the by car you pay sales tax for a long time though like twenty six years if you bought something online from a company in another state no tax do the Supreme Court said so but then in two thousand as an eighteen in a case called South Dakota v Wayfair deep into the days of the Internet economy. The court changed its mind and said out of state online taxation was okay and in the year or so since that ruling states knowing a good source of revenue when they see it have passed laws doing just that laws that senators from a couple of states without without sales tax not WANNA stop from Oregon Public Broadcasting K Davidson explains to understand how these laws work step into this Portland warehouse and meet Dave stains be checking out the shelves looking to see what we have in stock right now stains be runs ecommerce for made in Oregon which sells all kinds of distinctly Brinkley Oregon products pottery Pendleton blankets and this very popular hat. It's a trucker hat. It's got a patch that says Oregon is above California there's a lot of Oregon's just chuckle and love that thing as I said distinctly Oregon now another distinct thing about Oregon is it has no sales tax of its own so this year. It's been a huge change for made in Oregon to have to collect tax for online sales in about a dozen other states Colorado Dove Georgia Illinois Maryland Michigan Minnesota stains says it's a headache he estimates it will cost nearly forty thousand dollars in staff of time in software to comply with tax rules of dozens of states and companies around the country are confronting the same situation. Diane yetter is the founder of the Sales Tax Institute in Chicago so sales tax before the Supreme Court decision last year was based on where a company maintained physical presence and so the easy way to think about that is where did you have a store an office manufacturing plant a warehouse but in what's known as the Wayfair case the court looked at the the explosion of online shopping and the erosion of sales tax revenue it ruled that companies can also establish an economic presence in a state making them responsible for collecting sales tax that was good news to Washington State Representative Gael Tarleton. The wayfair decision is one of those rare things that happen in where we say. Everyone has to play by the same set of rules. If you're an online customer it's the same as walking into a storefront today. Almost every state including Washington requires online businesses to collect sales tax once retail sales pass a certain threshold say one hundred Thousand Dollars Charlton says that money matters in Washington which has no income tax and relies heavily on sales taxes to fund services. We're paying for health care where paying for education we're paying for affordable housing and everything that our communities need to thrive but the US senators from Oregon and New Hampshire where there is no sales tax folks are worried about how businesses are faring in this post wayfair world. They've introduced legislation to prevent remote sellers from having to collect sales tax until twenty twenty one to give them more time to prepare in Oregon. Senator Jeff Merkley says the measure would exempt small businesses altogether. This bill will say that small businesses businesses across the nation those that have less than ten million dollars in sales do not have to collect sales taxes for the ten thousand taxing jurisdictions across across the country. He says big businesses can handle the complexities of sales tax compliance. They have the infrastructure to be able to do this and that's that's not such a burden to a small business. It's an enormous burden. There are signs. Some states may be sympathetic to that argument. A handful have already changed the thresholds olds. They use to determine which remote companies should collect sales tax recognizing too. Many small businesses were affected in Portland Oregon. I'm Kate Davidson for marketplace spoke to adapt or die right. I mean it sounds harsh but there is a certain amount of Darwinism in business got to stay a step beheaded competition so from time to time on this program. We tell you about companies. Making hard left turns or right turns. Take your pick youtube started out as a video based dating service. It's true shop by the ECOMMERCE company online snowboard equipment in its early days this next pivot marketplaces and dealers about to tell you about was even more unusual oil and gas exploration to competitive video gaming here. You go if you're wondering how in the world company gets all the way from fracking fortnight. It started with a phone call in the summer of two thousand eighteen black ridge oil and gas. CEO Kindy Habilis was channing with one of his company's largest investors. We said Ken and what do you know about. East sports and I chuckled. I said well I can tell you. My eleven year old son is playing fortnight all the time when he's not he's on Youtube watching other people quake fortnight or he's on twitch watching the Sky Ninja play for the investor on the phone guy named Lyle Berman was pitching a company called Allied E. Sports which puts together and broadcast on cast video game tournaments allied was part of the same company as World Poker tour which Berman also funded seventeen years ago turns out Berman's a pretty famous poker players. He's in the Poker Hall of fame he told Develops that Black Ridge Acquisition Corp and investment companies would public in two thousand seventeen should ditch oil and gas and instead acquire the E. Sports Sports Company along with the Poker Company for a cool one hundred and fifty million dollars. We weren't out looking for sports opportunities but we ended up going full steam ahead with the pivot to east sports. The world of competitive video gaming suddenly just looked like a better investment than the volatile energy industry which was losing its luster but to make the pivot. Black Ridge had to sell the idea to its investors. You know when we were going on the road explaining this to shareholders very first question was wait a minute when you came here before for your October two thousand seventeen I feel you are selling an oil and gas thesis. What is this all about is concerned that his expertise energy. He says e sports arts is such a young industry that there are no real experts. They're Joanne. Highland Co authored a book called pivot how top to adapt and change course to find ultimate success asks. She says there are a few things business needs to understand when trying to make a hard left turn we would want to know that they have a good market understanding of these new markets that they would want to go into because it's very difficult to go from for example oil and gas all the way over to east sports without having some fundamental capabilities abilities to make it happen a big pivot. It's been done many times just look at video game company Nintendo. It started out as a Japanese playing card manufacturer in the eighteen ninety s after some mild success. The company was struggling to stay afloat tried to get into a bunch of other industries that ended up going nowhere. They sold rice for awhile they a Try to get into taxi cabs. They even had something called love hotels which are hotels at rent by the hour Dodd you can fill in the rest of their yourself. That's Jeff Ryan and he's author of the Book Super Mario how Nintendo conquered America he says when the company started manufacturing video games in the nineteen seventies it still had contacts in the toy industry so does pivot was a little less out of left field and moving from oil and gas to East Sports Nintendo never did what language seems to which which is to discard their whole hand of poker and pick five new cards that new handy sports is growing rapidly technology consulting firm activate says already more than two hundred and fifty million people watch sports around the world and Goldman Sachs says more people watch other people play video games than tune in for Major League Baseball. I mean for marketplace the final note on the way out today life comes at you fast department the National Rifle Association's Asians twitter account which has about seven hundred eighty thousand or so followers tweeted out a picture of Democratic presidential hopeful better aurore this morning with the caption.

Some ski slopes in Copenhagen to vessel ahead right here on the globalist live from London with me. Markus hip in in Hong Kong. Detectives are investigating the Caesar off too powerful homemade bombs thus are believed to have been intended for an attack at last Sunday's protests Monaco's Hong Kong Bureau chief James Chambers and monocle goals Hong Kong Research Carina. Choi Join me in the studio. Now Welcome to the program said James if I may start with you. What exactly do we know about these devices? That were apparently homes on a school campus so the police conducted some early morning raids on Sunday morning before the the big march that you mentioned mentioned and they ready to few flats and they just a few things including like a pistol but it's come to light now that they also discovered Some a couple of bombs I. It sounds like they're eh basically nail bombs And as you mentioned they were found on a school campus but even though the one hundred percent clear about These bums come from the implications are that they made a flat nearby On the people who are making these bombs found out about the rage About some of the raids elsewhere in the city. Gee and essentially Moved of the bombs and and hit them on a nearby school campus so the moment. There's no suggestion that shoots Who belonged to the school who've been making these bombs But it was used as a place to try and hide them Worrying Worrying News in in any case in related news home much. Have we been hearing from Carrie. Lam this week. Well Carrie Lam is basically come out off the the the huge march on Sunday. which involves you know a estimated eight hundred thousand people I'm basically said that she's just going to continue As she has been doing so and she's not going to launch any new initiatives To try and reach out to to the people so you know once again. We're in the situation where a huge number of ordinary Hong Kong as if taken to the streets to kind of to demonstrate and show that ongoing ongoing frustrations and the government has come out and said that they're not necessarily going to to listen and they're not going to take immediate action. Let's let's talk about schools in a bit more detail. There are voices in Hong Kong at the moment suggesting that the education system in the city status not approach on enough green. The home smokers tell us about that so I mean for for this whole time. Caroline has been saying that demonstrations are more of a social issue rather than something that is re related related to politics. Even though we all know that isn't the case so for her now now she has come forward and said that in order for Hong cars is to be properly You know Patriotic and know more about the communist values. These sort of the education system needs to be reformed and that how that's going to be done is unclear Home doesn't have a proper national education like Like they do in mainland China China and Where people are educated on the Communist Party success and so on carrying a U. of being both to join is an sounds an international school in Hong Kong? What kind of experiences do you have? What do you think when you hear these voices that the education system there is not pro Beijing enough? I mean when I was in in a Chinese school this was a couple years back over fifteen years ago and back then I think you know we had history lessons but we didn't necessarily delve Kevin to you know why the Communist Party got to the way that it did and and a lot of things we're sort of balance. I doubt that that's the case. Now I'm I'm an international schools. We didn't even touch upon Chinese history to that extent. So what exactly is being asked for if there are these voices no saying that the education system estimates north Pro Beijing enough so you know what executive they wanted to change how to make it more pro Beijing. What does that mean in practice? Speaking to some people on the government side. This is something that we here quite a lot. They are looking for. Try and kind of come up with reasons for this issue in his career. Righty says there. They've pinpointed education as part of the problem One of the big issues at least from the government side is the teachers Have been been arrested during these these protests and trying to suggest that leading the the kids astray by trying to promote the kind of pro-democracy calls in the classroom You know the the the government's the Hong Kong the government and and Beijing would would like to see a bit more of I guess the Chinese on the mainland Chinese Curriculum in Hong Kong But it's it's I guess it's quite ironic that one of the criticisms of a lot of the Asian educational systems is that You know kids don't necessarily get taught to think think for themselves And what we're seeing in Hong Kong is is the exact opposite. We're seeing These these students very much gonNa make their own minds up on on and what issues and taking their own actions so You know it's not it's a tricky situation Education is a very controversial issue in Hong Kong Attempts by the government to put a bit more kind of China into the classroom has has not gone down very well with the Hong Kong the parents in the past and I think if Carrie Lam and her government wants to kind of proceed with this issue it's going to rile the public in Hong Kong even more so She might want to be very careful about this topic. Exactly how much concern is there about these teachers who have been arrested during the six months of unrest and the thing that people All the government failed to appreciate this. These protests touch on every walk of life and every every industry industry is involved You know whether it's teaches or accountants or the marketing Community Bank is on an everyone. It doesn't it's not a matter of profession it's matter of just being a Hong Kong People from from all walks of life are involved. I guess that the the issue with with with teaches teaches that they do have A more outsized influence on young kids. in in China I guess. The concern is These teachers who who I am favor of the pro-democracy movement of a conduit for FA spreading spreading that say in the classroom. The you know the the the schools and campuses have been ground central for this for this movement So I guess they the the government want to try and Try and stop that Bhai You know influencing kids on bringing them More to their side I guess but They can have a tough job. Jameson Carina you. You obviously visiting London now from Hong Kong. I'm wondering we've been speaking to you so often but the oviously thousands of other journalists in Hong Kong reporting abolish. What's happening over there? How easy is it for them to report from there and to work there at the moment? Well Hong Kong don't it's very easy to the A journalist in Hong Kong Troubling around Asia. It can be quite tricky. You need to get You know kind of visas in order to officially report automate going into China if you do it. Efficiently can be a nightmare. So in contrast of the region Hong Kong is very free and phantoms of reporters his but and and June protests a lot You know hundreds of journalists have flown in from from all of the world to cover this but it it is becoming coming Quite tricky and almost quite Dangerous be reporter in that because both sides of the divide a getting quite a I guess nervous around reports. It's not just the police who who actually treating reporters and by the way but protests very a bit nervous about having journalists. Miss Around an eight boils down to the issue. How you prove? You're you're a journalist Everyone's being asked to kind of show that they've got the credentials but In in Hong Kong you don't really need Journalists visas in the same way. You need You know other countries so a lot of people are making their own jackets and putting press badges on it But that can also be exploited by by people who want to have more nefarious Motivations so no finding we've seen months of protests in Hong on call Carina and and James D think there is illusion to be find what you expect from say twenty twenty. I think right now. A lot of people have a lot of doubt about whether there will be a political solution. I think. Carrie Lam hasn't said anything or indicated that there is one in the horizons but speaking to a couple of politicians titians and lawyers pre Recently they said that the biggest threat to Hong Kong right now is people. Having this doubt having this pessimism that there isn't a solution and only with more hope will there actually be room for a solution to be made if we look at the the five demands of the protesters have For them are still outstanding. A big one is a an official independent inquiry into the police And for now Kylie resisting that because we have a report coming out from the independent dependent police complaints commission. That'll come out in probably about January. That'll be the next flashpoint if people in Hong Kong and protests on happy with what they read I mean that's GonNa make them Come out on the streets again so You know we don't see this Going away anytime soon. The as as criticizes a big risk. That people just don't think there's a solution and the two sides on on talking but there's this thing has a lot of legs to go into twenty twenty joins Jimbo's and carrying choice. Thank you very much for joining us. You're listening to the globalist monocle. Twenty four Mark Heap peons. I am now joins in the studio by Monaco's America's researcher at at Large Stalker Monaco's acting bureau chief in Los Angeles the Rabelo for a roundup of the top stories on their patch. Welcome Loath to the studio. Ed If I may start with you what do you have for us today. I want to talk about some big news in South America the change of government in Argentina. which which happened yesterday oversee? How with the right leaning business-friendly Marizzio macrey who basically failed to still the country in the right direction couldn't hold inflation and that seeing a return to the left With Alberto Fernandez. A former cabinet lead in the government of Cristina Fernandez occasion both could Fernandez on related oversee. She is the former president. Now the vice president or is really really on You know how the country's GonNa Change Not just in terms of sort of political orientation orientation. We've seen a shift to the right in Latin America through the likes of both Naro a now. We have the left returning in Argentina but also the sort of difficulty of a country that's really struggled economically for are longtime inflation now over fifty percent Poverty rate forty percent which is shocking for our country that sort of prides itself on having a large middle class. So a lot for this government to try to do to try and Bring inflation under control and really improve the economy so that poverty rate goes down on on things start to look a little rosier a very hard task indeed we still have to hear from the new president of the wars. The exact planning to solve these issues. But what is the feeling if you look at these papers. What is the feeling in Argentina? Do people who believe that for Rhonda's has takes for this job and to face the challenges. Well well I mean there's a big reaction against macrey look When when he came in and a lot of people thought that he would be able to turn the country around? He went to the math and offer historic loan The F. is very unpopular in that country due to the two thousand and one two thousand and two economic crisis and the fact that look he was not able to bring inflation under control. Tro So I think you know. A lot of people who may be voted for macrey. Switch sides They'll be hoping that they will be a change. I mean we're saying that the government is looking to spend more on social programs for example In order to try. And you know help those most needy. And who is on the New Economy Minister Martine Guzman Cushman who was based in New York As a professor at Columbia University doesn't have a political background but obviously given the fact that the economy has struggled so much is will be particularly on his row. Well let's continue then to the US. I see that's your your story for this. Newspaper Round Up is about the New York subway way. Indeed yeah I mean like New York has loved to complain about the subway. You know the things that go wrong. Maybe Marcus when you were living in new. The London London to at least have a subway guys. The subways twenty four hours. Okay so I just in its defense but you know there's always all sorts of problems I think The the latest is basically the fact that these trains were ordered from somebody a and and Out of the three hundred audit they were meant to be delivered by January. Two thousand seventeen only eighteen have been delivered on time so That's the to add up to an extra three hundred million dollars years causing them in the fact that having to keep old trains running through not having these new ones but just all sorts of issues. That's just one of the problem oversee in you voted in a congestion charge. That's GonNa come in and twenty twenty one which will partially allayed the the funding shortfall but There are running costs operating costs food not million dollars a day which is phenomenal largely. Because there's a lot of work that needs to be done to update the system so For now it's still a bit of a political football and The woes thank you look looking set to continue karate. Looks like she wants to say. I'm very intrigued by this story. Obviously I guess putting my urban est hat here but it's like there are so dominy. Seo's with a New York City subway and with way MTA has been handling everything for the past couple of years. Do you think new cars are really solution like just too many problems. That they're facing is definitely part of the solution but the solution is so complex and long that it didn't it's very small part I think is also also you know it's also sir like I said if a political football the it's you know tons into a bit of a slanging match between bill blase the Mayor of New York City Andrew Cuomo. WHO's the Governor Avenue State? They are both Democrats but they're not exactly friends and this whole. MTA subway issues been sort of wife them to SPA. I'm also wondering wondering as you as you mentioned. I did live in New York and I did miss my London Underground experience. How much talk is there in New York about improving the the commuter user experience here in London there is always a lot of excitement where we get new types of train speed for the underground or the over crowns? I mean people are frustrated because yeah I mean I don't get the subway that often Because I bicycle but like when I do it's often delight. And that's the biggest problem that people complaining about the fact that trains breakdown that that delays all the time. I don't think anyone's looking like magic. New Don's been some new station openings but I think largely people just want to see the service that's already in place which has the potential to be amazing. Be What it should be which is efficient. And it's not bad at the moment by any stretch of the imagination. Well let's continue with one more story Colada you've got one interesting one over there for us. This is for Mercury News and it's looking at the bay area quite an interesting story about some tech companies Around the bay area and Silicon Silicon Valley There are willing to offer up to ten thousand dollars in bonuses to get people to move out of the bay area and we've talked several times about the housing costs and how they're getting and how unbearable it is becoming to live there and they site even here reports by Silicon Valley Leadership Group. Saying how you know more than four. In ten residents acknowledged they plan to move out of the area in the next couple of years exactly citing the housing costs and traffic and just the way the region is managed So I thought this would be quite interesting especially bearing in mind what we've just Issued are small cities index and the whole premise of the how small cities are really gaining traction with people moving away from the main And larger cities to add wrote about a border in the United States as one of the examples in the US where that is the case And it is just interesting seeing news like this. I just wonder if these are the sorts of incentives that you need to get people well to move to smaller cities instead of being attracted to defend see name of a central Cisco or a Los Angeles. Do think it's going to work ten thousand dollars. Do Think goons going to make a difference. Do you think many people into this offer for one guy a word for one guy who's cited in this article who actually ended up Moving to Palm Springs which I might add isn't exactly a cheap city But it is interesting. I think it is really nice. I mean I I'd move that Condo's Alexa. I think that's a really interesting trial. I bet there are many cities following. What's happening in the bay area now? Considering many many other world series so expensive imagine London Hong Kong so forth well in an also a shows how remote work here can really fill a gap as well if you give these incentives Kantor people to move away from the main cities. Then you and you can work remotely then. It doesn't really matter that you need to be in a city where everything is around you right you might as well be in palm springs surrounded by by lovely nature and just Just enjoy it. I think we should maybe suggest that to monarchy that you relocate from Los Angeles to Paul Springs. It's just you know I've a win visits. I'll visit happily it Stotka Carlotta Rabelo thank you very much. You're listening to the globalist monocle. Twenty four still to come the program molecules. Venetia Raina goes down.

You're listening to the globalist on monocle. Twenty four I'M MARGO SIPPING THE THIRTY S. You have Monaco's seasonal seasonal newspaper. The winter weekly south now wants to give you a little sneak peek on what you'll find in those pages. We have drafted our executive editor. Joseph later to join us in the studio George. Welcome to the globalist was an amazing publication. What do we have over what you introduce it to us? Will you work here. See would say marcus expire happen to think it is a fantastic publication The winter weekly addition as regular readers in some listeners may know comes out over December and this year stretches also into January addition. Three of this beautiful berliner format a publication is designed to accompany readers over Christmas. It's a bit of a digest asked all of Alpine destinations cooler weather climbs where we found interesting opportunities and I just thought Marcus I would share a few stories with you. Two of which I think you'll know a little bit of balance I'll I'll maybe save time One story I'd really love to draw attention to was done in house by a fantastic photographer for and writer. WHO works here photo? Department Victoria Kogo did an amazing story about children's historic cafes and I think this could be a very fluffy fluffy piece about. Aren't they nice. And isn't it nice to go to a wood paneled room but actually the story is about the fact that these age-old social meeting spaces reflect what children was like. Was this as a city. Hundreds of years but they're in desperate desperate peril There isn't the skills to renovate them and these people are having to club together together to fight against companies like starbucks big companies like Lavar Impediment who are buying up space in the city and driving these age businesses out you. Oh you is the host of our food and drink programme I guess more than anyone would know the importance of food to making neighborhoods absolutely important. And Luckily I'm noticing Grudge Crutchley this shift though I feel like decision makers aren't and city planners are beginning to understand how crucial food entering can be in creating pleasant environments to live in absolutely absolutely and I would recommend anyone that doesn't already subscribe to Marx's show food neighborhoods which is altogether that very good next. Marcus to Helsinki. What do we have from there? I don't know if you've you've ever been before I die. Happy well we. We were going to do some stories about Manchester but we thought they wouldn't resonate with US another place. Yeah exactly but You you know we look around the world and we see as much foment and we see people are pulling apart and think about brexit having about trump so we decided to look at a story where two who cities are coming together and this is to do tolin and Helsinki who are collaborating plans for potential undersea tunnel. That would the the time taken on the ferry. I buy my I think about four times And just to foster closer economic cooperation between these two cities and I love to to see that bit of dialogue happening between the Baltics takes in the nordics. What do you think I'm a fan of this projects you know? The Finns Estonians called Taller sink. That would be the city that would be merged positively one someday and isn't it the city with the most rock bands ahead as well. Please hit the ground plans for the future. I think already now you can use the hills and get traveled caught. AWW sexually use public transport in the Stonier and as you mentioned. They're blending tunnel over there so you want interaction between these two nations countless Ferris crossing the finish Gulf Fund. The future looks really bright. I think it's really interesting science for this donations. It's an amazing thing and you know the Baltics have really embraced high speed Internet and have an amazing technology. Oh Jeez sector we we you know we know very well what The nordics do well in terms of social equality and social capital And I think these two These two kind of neighboring areas areas have a lot to give each other whistle. Stop tour of some of the things in the paper Thomas Lewis Are Toronto. Correspondent went to New Hampshire. which is the site of the I primary at the beginning of February and something of a cold weather bellwether about the presidential campaign in the air to come New Hampshire scene? It's the kind of kicking off of primary season. We have a loved interview with Tom. Phillips whose the editor of a company called fat check we will know the perils and discussion around the idea of fake news he is in charge of an organization which vets the facts and and sorts them from the fiction and he gives us some examples. About how fake news is actually thea- for a very old school Or the idea of disinformation. Anyway is very kind of old school. I I see flicking through the paper them to pick up another story. Something rather familiar earlier on. No I wo- I. It isn't the finish times there. There are a few things from the nordics habit will pick up on this. Because I think you'll have an opinion on it. Alvar aalto the modernist extraordinaire creator of Beautiful mid-century buildings did build a a an amazing library space which you're looking at now and this amazing library space is is in V or as we say in. Finland coincidentally three out of four grandparents. Come from that region and obviously we lost that bit of Finland onto the Soviet Union in the Second World War Way. And that's when that's when we Finns also lost lost this library to to the Soviet Union. But it's an amazing building and I'm really delighted to see that it's been renovated and it's been it's been fixed to to what it used to be like before and it's such an amazing building. Well the like with all good piece of journalism. I feel there's usually a few strands to what's going on. So you're right. You know you can see those altech sixty stools tank top. And isn't this a beautiful place. Ah on the materials natural lovely gorgeous but actually it is a story about diplomacy and about you know how how nations behave across borders. And I think that's what the winter weekly does extremely well taking a specific often beautiful example and telling the broader story around with the opportunities and perils that. Come with that I think the winter weekly. It's great for also is to give a bit of inspiration on how spend the stock evenings for example during the holiday season what to do at home. What kind up St Street and told you spend your time? Yeah absolutely so. We've we've gone through the the big political stories. We found a few beautiful business stories as well one all. Draw your attention to quickly. He is the world's biggest manufacturer of climbing walls who knew based in Sofia in Bulgaria and they manufacture ninety percent of the world's climbing walls. That's a coup business right. Imagine imagine if that's what you did that's a really cool business In in in the way of recommendation. Sorry I didn't really answer your question but hey unless we don't have to The there's an amazing resort resort report in Zell and say in Australia And everything to do while. You're not to mention plenty to read books to curl up with. If I have time to have time. Marcus think if you do I'll give you. I'll give you another a great little find. Alex appears in the culture pages of the newspaper does amazing shop in Paris. Could the library does out which is a specialist bookstore which deals only with You know tracks about mountaineering about walking about the weather about the geography the geometry geometry and the beauty of the of the Alps and of the mountains. More generally and I think this is a small business and the kind of thing that we'd like to support at Monaco. You know there was a debate about every single book going online and not needing bookshops. Per If you look in the right enclaves you can find these really inspiring places that have been kept alive often through sheer grit and determination. But this would be the only place that you could find certain tracks on on Mountaineering Alpine environment and therefore beautiful discovery before it so much reading an inspiration in the brand's new third edition of the Monocle Winter Week.

Where do you get your news? The show might be one of your sources. According to a new the report by the Rand Corporation in the United States one third of Americans knowingly rely on news platforms that they deem unreliable traditional media outlets such prince radio and television still rank amongst the most accurate mediums however it is not anymore. The defacto prime renew sauce us. Monaco's bureau chief in Los Angeles Karate Rabelo myths to we rent sociologist. Michael who co-authored the report they call us up in runs. HQ In sunset money come reliability does generally matter to people they do tend to get news from platforms that they think are the most reliable but there is a large chunk of people Who Don't there's a third of Americans actually get their news from platforms? That they themselves say are not the most reliable platforms and in fact. Those people are also the people who think the news is in. General has become less reliable over time. Is it a matter of perception that so all we we ask people about their perceptions of how reliable the news is. We don't actually try to assess the quality of the news that they're getting but we do know that they believe the reliability liability of their primary sources is less reliable than other sources so for example people who get their news primarily from social media. They acknowledged that this is not the most reliable platform but it is the one that they used the most. What do you feel? Then that Americans Americans used in sources that them themselves are saying or dinner where they're not as reliable as others. It's a good question. We didn't ask people why why they use the sources they use. Although the data do point to a few potential reasons one of them is. That's that's just knowing that there is more reliable news out there doesn't mean you have the time or ability to access it so it could be competing demands for example so as I said people who use social media are particular risk for sort of realizing. They're not getting getting the most reliable news but it's also one of the sort of easiest ways to get news it's very convenient. And if you think about things like print news which was does consistently rated as among the most reliable. That's a little less easy to use. If you're at home doing some housework travelling in the car you can't really read a newspaper But you can check your social media feed that sort of thing. Did you find that the report finding that Americans generally find new sources to be reliable. Then exactly what you're mentioning here about print when they look I. Guess to traditional media is the overall impression that yeah. That's where you can kind of trust what you're reading or hearing or seeing right so I think it's a a bit of a glass half full half empty answer here forty four percent of respondents said the news is as reliable. All is that has been But almost as many people forty-one percent said it's less reliable now than it used to be so roughly equal portions of the population have fairly different views. And then there's a subset about fifteen percent think. The news is actually gotten more reliable over time and those are primarily race ethnic minorities for example but then when you think about specific platforms You're right sort of the more. Traditional News Delivery Television both broadcast and cable and print were generally viewed as among the most reliable sources. We also looked into how political article partisanship factors and the whole idea whether individuals are looking for specific viewpoints when looking for their their sources a sender the specific new sources here. What were the findings? Then when you get people's take people's viewpoints and preferences interview I guess right so one of the things we did was we looked back at previous data. We'd collect from our sample on their political attitudes on sort of a scale from very liberal very conservative but also what they said they did during the two thousand sixteen presidential election they vote. Who did they vote for that? That sort of thing and there were definitely political partisanship links to all sorts of different aspects of news consumption in terms Of sort of triangulation of news or Echo Chamber risk We did see actually that more liberal respondents were more likely to say that they didn't check news sources that they thought would give them a different view than their own and at the same time we're liberal respondents also thought that the news was As reliable as it has been so it's possible. They didn't feel all that they needed to triangulate. Now we've spoken before on our radio shows and also in our magazine about truth the K.. And the research has been conducted here rand now going beyond the. US on it comes to that. I'm curious to see to hear from this reports. Reciprocally how does it relate then to decide if through decay and erosion of the blurring of the line between opinion and facts as well right so truth decay. Is this idea that facts data analysis or playing a lesser role in American public life and Now outside of America's well so one of the ways that has been thought of as a way to combat truth decay is to help people sort of be more be better consumers of information and news. They should be more critical of the information they get. This should rely on high quality sources sources high quality journalism and the quality of news itself and information should be increased. So that's sort of the the baseline idea here but our our report points out that this likely isn't enough so even having available high-quality news like if people are able to realize the news that I'm getting isn't the most reliable news but I'm still getting it from where I choose to get it. It's not just about making people aware that there's better news out there and it's not necessarily enough to sort of increase the amount of high quality quality information. That's out there there is. It looks like there's a need for SORTA news providers to make news more easily accessible more easily digestible particularly if they're as as we think sort of these time constraints for a lot of people but also there is the The added difficulty of the people potentially most at risk here so the people who think the news has gotten less reliable over time. These same people don't go to the sources that they do think are reliable. So there are at greater risk They're a third more likely to to get news from places that they don't think are reliable. I know that obviously the report did not come up with an answer to this question. But I'm curious. Of course you looking to all that data a an older answers what should happen next. And how do you how. How do you shift people's perception in the sense? You know you already mentioned how most respondents are aware that what's social media might not be the ideal place for them to gather their news. How do you start to change their minds to actually look into the right place? Yeah it's a great question. I think one of the first things we need to do is really confirm or sort of explore. Why is it that that people aren't using news that they think is the most reliable? Is it something about the limitations on time or access. And if that's the case then trying to figure out. What are these more digestible yet? high-quality sources of news. I think that's Direction we need to go. I also think that it. It may be important to reiterate the importance of high quality quality. Reliable news right so if people who think the news is less reliable now than it used to be. Don't go to the places they think are are still providing reliable news then sort of the value of reliable information Is something that people should be made more aware of the sociologist sociologist.

Thomas luxury retail specialist and author ofessional police the price so fast fashion. I should answer the future of clothes. Dana I we're going to talk about the potential revival of one of New York's oldest department stores Lord and Taylor what's screen on their Lord and Taylor was sold last year To a rental company called tote by Hudson Bay the the retailer in Canada that also owned saks fifth avenue and a bunch of other big old retardment stores. Hudson's Bay really does own these properties. What their their key interest in them in is the real estate? Those gorgeous old buildings from the nineteen thirties on city blocks in Manhattan and stores around the country so they sold the real estate and they sold the brand to tote and Loto is not coin to use the store the old Manhattan store instead. They're they're going to branch out throughout the country and they're gonNA do pop ups. They're closing. They did take thirty eight of the branch stores around the country. But they're gonNA close five of them and they're going to do pop ups and places like Yonkers Jonkers and tried to attract new young clientele exactly exactly the Lotto co-founders. They're saying that they are doing this pop up to appeal a young because consumer so that's northern Tena wouldn't seem like where your mom shops anymore. Is this going to work. Well it's not even where your mom shops. I used to go there with my grandmother other when I was little. And what would learn Taylor. Actually funny enough was best known for was it's restaurant the birdcage which was very chic. It was a bit like Fred's at Barney's and you went to the birdcage page for lunch. And then on your way in and your way out you went shopping and so I think if they're smart they're going to rekindle that but they wanna do rental and what they did do which was really interesting as they absorbed the inventory that Lord and Taylor had immense inventory. So they're going to be able to not just try yeah to sell it. But they're going to rent that inventory and they they are saying you know come in rent return repeat re re return repeat. I'm curious if this is gonNA work. They do have some time to play it out because in their deal they managed to negotiate not having to pay rent for three years which means they're saving fifty eight a million dollars a year in rent. This gives them a little cushion to see if this model is gonNA worker. Not all you about yourself. Would you want to go and visit. Look I'm not sure I would but you know. The rental market is ticking. Up Fast and for sort of the under thirty. Five's this is a solution. If you can't afford Gucci and Prada and your you can rent it if you want to wear something terrific on to a cocktail Party Holiday Party a wedding you know or just stop buying clothes IOS and just get your office. Where from there? Well Auden Taylor. Is there a lesson to be learned from here. What does this example tells about? What the key to department stores successes exists nowadays well? The models changed so dramatically so quickly it's been slowing down for a while in the end. Thanks to companies like Amazon. We don't don't need to go in our car through you know miles of traffic parking forever. Far Away at a shopping mall in the suburbs to wander miles miles in the shopping mall to to get to the store to see fifty of the same thing on Iraq paw through it and then walk all the way back to where we can just click and buy through Neta portray through through matches fashion through my theresa through even the the department store's own websites. macys DOT COM. So the mall has died and we don't need one hundred thousand thousand square feet of retail space anymore to go shopping. And that's where these these old chains are really in trouble. Because they over expanded banded they put stores everywhere and then they got stuck with them and the value of the company's is as Hudson Bay proof by selling the Lord and Taylor store that original beautiful full flagship in Manhattan or in Chicago or in San Francisco wherever the department store was originally based and that's the value those buildings and they come with air rights so macy's is actually talking about selling the air rights to its iconic building in Manhattan and Building Tower on top. I wouldn't be surprised if that's twit Bernard Arnault does with tiffany which is another one of those iconic real estate Buys so I think that they're going to have to keep closing. Malls Malls House will get mowed down or repurpose. And they're going to have to come up with a brand new model. That just isn't doesn't feel like we're awash close when we walk in. Well let's continue and now onto your specialism fashion and sustainability. There's a few threads going on here. I we have the talks that were at the end of the Madrid. Climate talks on Monday day which were evaluating the fashion industry chaucer for climate action. Could you tell us more about this. Well the fake has really interesting. It was signed by thirty forty three companies. He's including index caring. Data's Burberry H. M. gap. Levi's you know big big companies and one of the and it's got got many pillars to it but one of the targets is to be carbon neutral by twenty fifty and reducing emissions by thirty percent by twenty thirty. Now these are these are big targets to try to reach and they they do echo a lot of what some of the other things are happening like the the pact that carrying announced with with caring With the French government at the g seven in September these companies are trying. They're trying to Do something but as long as their model is based on volume all these little tweaks aren't going to work the it's the system has to change and the system actually change the same way with department stores by not making us. A washing clothes can steal name any leaders in the industry of the moment. Who actually would be doing a good job when it comes to sustainability well Itsel McCartney Shirley is she you know she too is based on volume but but to a lesser extent extent? She's not trying to be a ten billion dollar a year company like Gucci. Or or do you or or Chanel and she she does you care about traceability. She does source organic materials whenever possible or responsible materials ethical choices make sure her workers are well paid treated. She's not sourcing from you. Know countries on the other side of the world where factories collapse on them and kill them and paying them sixty eight dollars a month or there is a loss of talk about Sustainability Bart's the protections for Christmas shopping vigorously it goes to the US to US quite a different story. About how consumers rate sustainability is a factor when it comes to shopping. Yes that was a big sigh. You here Ah surprisingly even though the shopping season this year officially is one week shorter than usual because Thanksgiving fell on the latest Thursday that it could in the month breath of November in that kicks off Black Friday cyber Monday in the shopping season. Sales are going to be up four percent over last year. Did you know that the number one one gift item is clothing. I didn't know that either until I started snooping around more than toys more than electronics. More than books of frustratingly pleased by my my book instead of a sweater. And and then pass it around to your friends so yeah it's it's sales are up. People are buying more clothes and close and close is one of the reasons of course is because they're uber available and they are. They've never been cheaper than they are today. So it's it's a gift that anyone can afford and you can exchange engine and you and you can see it being used but really we have to slow down on this because there's no place for these close to go anymore. So what does take to see the actual change to just needs to ways or do a neat ball direction. I think we need I think we need government. I'm an intervention quite honestly. I think that we need to to serious labeling so that we know what's in our clothes and where they came from and who made them. I love fashion revolutions campaign. Who made my clothes? Because we don't know who are close even designers don't know and I think that we need to actually think more consciously about our purchases. There's a fashion editor. I met recently. WHO said if you really want? If you're kind of keen on something take picture of it. Keep it in your phone for two weeks. Revisited if you still have it go back and buy it or go online and Click and buy it but to try to avoid the impulse buy because it's the impulse buy that is filling our landfills. We were at once through twice like yeah. It's not really working for me after all and it's gone and if we can just do that that would already slow down the flow into the earth. Dana Thomas Thank you very much for joining us here in Multiple Tony Farm Doc. Denmark is known for a lot of things that are great during Windsor Great shopping hearty food and hookah cafes buffs until recently anyone wanting to indulge in mountain sports would have to visit neighboring Norway or flight the Alps now however they have copen hill a mountainous green power plants designed to by English architecture firm big that boasts a dry ski slope hiking and running through emails and soon the world's tallest claiming wall Monaco's Venetian rainy reports. Welcome welcome to Hill Patrick. I'm the CEO of the Mr Arp. Baku Foundation Copen Hill. Trust that owns this fantastic installation this key slow to ski center on the climbing volume while the other installations on his power. Plant in Copenhagen. And you're in full Ski Care Ready to guy. I'm ready to take up to the slope so I I guess changed clothes in my office. The others were laughing at me but I have on my office have Paschi standing all kinds. I'm always Jesse. Let's go such this is the The main entrance. We have a cafe and bar. Bill can collaboration with the cost and Tamar so he can have off the ski Office key Beer Gluhwein. Whatever you like you can eat some simple vicious To the left we have have off a brand store Solomon brand store and all the way down in the corner we have a ski rental facility. Can Run all your gear helmets boots whatever. WBZ right give me a bit of a background to this project. What was the idea behind? That's the whole audits. The history stems back to around two thousand and five own saying There is an old waste energy plants next to us here and that was about to be worn out the lifetime around forty forty five years and then you need to replace it and rebuild it so the company that operated the power plant started. I started to look around in the Copenhagen area. Should we be the new plant where should be located how big should be etc etc and in two thousand and ten. They held a architecture protections competition where the invited six international architects very known Arctic firms to do a bid for for ten. They're all of the design of the new power plant and be g won the tender with this brilliant idea of placing a recreational park ski slope on top of the power plant. So that's that's how we started to see it. Go Up of getting boots and a helmet faces. We had the green slope to practice a bit. Patrick joins me that the plastic dry slip surface which was custom made by an Italian company. It can be slippery than powder snow. Okay yeah it is a slightly different as I can see how it takes a little bit of getting used Komo News. No passageways more icy and that's a little bit. Aw Yuck okay. We go again in the magic carpet skier. He says that the uniqueness of the site means almost everything had to be designed especially from the ski surface to the lighting. Even the soil. used to understand why you need to remember. This is all built on top of a waste to energy power. Plant something you fully appreciate when you take the Gloss Smith that runs right through the building to the very top so we're not going to go through the belly of the powerful onto salad. This is actually a deliberate design decision. Initially doc talked about they wanted to put next to the facade but the power plants. CEO Said No. You have to have it inside the plants you you can actually see what's going on on on the inside underneath roof on the disco so I think elevators are on seventy five meters tall. All you can see. Concrete roof from underneath is heated concrete slabs so and all of a sudden you will about at the rooftop area used to pay ground lots of people who are skiing at St the view in the C.. Right yeah exactly. So what have you. I mean today's very misty and rainy. But normally see all the way in over Malmo in Sweden so So now your seventy five minutes from the approximately and behind us you can walk all the way up to the viewing platform which is like eighty five meters up in the air directly above us is a chimney just blowing out steam doc. Exactly and it's I mean it. It is basically it's clean. I'd say it's probably more clean to be up there in the chimney down walking or bicycling into central of Copenhagen but let's often the main slope and Oh yeah sorry I have to go over this. What's this an equivalent to then? Is this a red door so Yeah I mean after part very opera part is probably be categorized as black. It's seven forty five percent not degrees but still it's like twenty three degrees and then it's south debates there's probably like black reddish. Yeah exactly yeah. Let's give it a Guy Yup. Yeah this one's definitely hot. Surprisingly I've fallen. Hey I never pretended I was a black crown scare around me. Groups of Professionals Wiz cost and snowboarders do tricks on rails and slide boxes. I'm just happy to make it down to the bottom safely. My ski as we were trying to bring back a skis and boots Patrick. It tells me that he's relieved to to see the project. Finally up and running after nearly a decade of Catholic planning and hard work so so it's kind of funny because I've been working so intensely sleep this project for more than eight years now and as it is sometimes works so much with something all of a sudden you can lose the sensational. What you're doing? Is it good or is it like stupid is a genius or is but then I walked up and I saw some people were skiing and kids were paying around. There were happening. It's like yeah okay I mean and this is what it's all about right and it is. I mean I'm very proud. Only efforts have paid off since opening at the start of October. COPEN HILAS had around thirty thousand visitors from sporty types to curious teenagers to people who just want to enjoy the views across the sound to Sweden on top of being popular and unique contraction. It's also a spectacular piece of architecture from ingles and his team an example of what can be done when you see otherwise boring buildings and spaces as opportunities to do something different. Now that's worth taking a full for Monaco in Copenhagen. I'm Venetia Rainy. Thus or for today's program. Thanks to producers this kind of Rabelo Anticipates Reynolds and our studio manager stiff junior with editing assistance from some Howard. After the headline there is more music on the way. The briefing is live at me day in London. This broke from the globalist returns at the same time. Tomorrow I am Marcus hipping. Thank you very much fully against goodbye.
Material 208: That Was Genius
"Good morning. Good afternoon. Good evening. I m Florence I on your host of the material podcast. This is a episode episode number two hundred eight and I'm joined here by the lovely and wonderful. And the indescribable Andy nocco. I just we were talking before we started formally recording. And I just realized something that if we are like blacklisted in the wherever the modern form of red channels is like for our communists, you know, power to the people's tendencies, like flow, I on Andy and not go. We'd be like right next to each other alphabetically in that list. And that, that actually makes me. Oh my gosh. Andy, that's absolutely true. You find the Senate like to back tobacco most what which is good because that means we would keep each other. We would covered each other because I'm sure that I would have a lot of executive during that whole thing I would probably explode actual, I, I would I would bring an extra Game Boy for you. Thank you. Do one of those no friend does switches that youngster into. Excuse me. So I just want to quickly derailed our usual Google podcast. Talk about me. Because because I can I can do this Andy allows me. He gives me a finite. You too. I, I am just as pleased to sit back and go on this journey with you with the with the rest of our listeners. So I am taking up a new hobby this summer purely just because I'm looking for a way to get creative. But in a way that's also utilitarian because I found that the ways I used to get creative like like beating and paper craft. I mean, all these things are really nice. But like I just, you know, I don't know where to what to do with it afterwards. Like, you know, so I decided that I because I'm now getting back into gaming and I guess, became a streamer somehow overnight. I decided that what I really need or some cool gaming purples, but I can't find anything that's cool or worth the money. I don't want to spend a hundred twenty dollars on that pink razor, keyboard lights up because I didn't read very good things about it. And I also need keyboard to function as a writing tool because of what I do for a living. So I decided that I would start bonding my own keyboards, and I the only reason I want to bring this up is because today that recording this Wednesday and Wednesday's my Amazon day. That's Jeff Bezos Amazon. And, you know, I try I try not to fly Amazon flag high, but it is nice to know that you're getting in some treats in the mail today, and I am getting my keyboard to start modding. I don't have anything to mod with it yet. What it lights up and just I'm very excited. And I'm very excited that it's gonna come at it's going to be here. And I also have some key caps on the way because I have a very nice friend who is cleaning out their inventory, and has offered to ship me, their remnants, just for the price of shipping, which is very lovely. So I'm just I just wanted to tell you about this everyone because I'm excited. The big question cherry AmEx Brown or blue. I ended up ordering the Brown me to see this, are you going with the ovaries to sorta dampen the effect a little bit. No, also, I didn't order Cheri brand ones. I ordered the gamma Ron. I think it's called like the ghetto gather on gator on which is like, apparently the patents TR the patents expired on the cherry switches, so bunch of other companies start were like let's make them to. And because my friend is said, keyboard enthusiasts. And by the way, he writes for the wire cutter. Just it's Nathan Edwards. If you go check him out on Twitter. I he told me basically like what he would buy for himself. And I really appreciated that because I just basically need somebody to tell me like this is what you should buy. And if you want to do this, like get this. So I'm really looking forward to trying it out. I just I'm excited to get back into prefer whole. That is cool. And also as a writer, you've you have to keep coming up with ways to trick your brain into getting excited about writing. And oftentimes for me, it is switching to a different keyboard, or even like buying a new keyboard. I'm I'm also in the new keyboard club kind of because a couple of weeks ago, I discovered this little little dungle from a company called big mess big mess OBE wires calls the wombat it is a bidirectional USB to apple desktop bus and apple desktop bus to eighty be converter, the upshot being that I can take like my big like apple Saratoga, apple desktop bus keyboard, that I wrote like three or four books on that actually took apart, and customized with, like metallic green pebble paint. And all that sort of stuff. And I can now continue to use it like on my modern MAC book, and on my MAC, mini, so it's if and people who are listening, if you have never checked out the keyboard modding, it is the, the, it's like the first time you've gone to a shoe store that actually has every size and every width that you didn't realize that you don't have to just simply say, okay, this isn't this is comfortable enough. I guess I'll take this one. You can actually get a keyboard, customized to exactly how you like it where you actually can buy, I guess you would call it a flight of switch of keyboard. Switches, the actually by, like a pad of like six two six two switches us ask the company that's building the keyboard, like, okay, I want the sec being Dunkin donuts. I want one cherry M X with the Alaska. Murrow ring, I want one cherry Brown. Roun- that has the white Alaska Murph, and then you get this little tiny like six key keypad that courses connected, nothing, and you test the feel of each one of them, the sound of every one and you feel as though if you feel as though, like you've just been like you're, you're a samurai and you've been fitted for your sword. Yeah. That's, that's how we know our computer nerds. 'cause that's what we 'cause it's true that is the sword in the arsenal of being on the computer. And by the way, I've been thinking about getting one of those switches, just for just for fidgeting just to like Clack on so, you know, 'cause sometimes you wanna clock on the keyboard. I do I like to clock my long nails on the keyboard, because that's what I do. It makes me feel like a secretary. I it's just like the most regressive thing for me to say. But it's like, yes, can I help you, Mr. Bob office like because that's what I do when I'm like often staring off into the distance into the quarter of my wall and thinking, just anyway, everybody has weird quirks. That's what makes. In our job. That's kind, it's very, very normal to just think about be great that would be sitting at a desk in front of a computer. But the only thing they only think I'm smart enough. Maybe to take phone messages, and occasionally photocopy things and they nibble never asked me to do anything more complicated than that. And you get to go home at five. Exactly. You told you go dental exactly end probably have maternity leave back then anyway. It was it was called the rest of your life, right? Dry, aren't they? Your groundbreaking cancer research has absolutely restarted lives near Boston children's hospital. Congratulations, the new baby guess you're going to be a stay at home. Mom now. Here's the thing, though. My last name wouldn't be I on because I would have my husband's last name. Okay. So let's move onto more modern thing. I saw. Did you ever buy that happened? Did you did you buy that net book? We were talking about last week last week. We're talking about. There's a there's a Rite Aid pharmacy near my house that's as being convinced turning into a Walgreens over the next week. And so they really decide that they want us. They need to sell off pretty much everything that they're not keeping. And they had to like hundred eighty dollar really incredibly lame Android looking Android Basnet books. As lame as you imagine a laptop computer that sold next a next to the smokeless tobacco tens of the counter at a Rite Aid pharmacy, could be it was the last ice last week when I talked about this they were marked seventy percent off from something like so it would have been like thirty something dollars which still seemed stupid high for me a total waste of money. Even just to see exactly how bad these things would be as a as a useful thing for anything and I thought, okay? Well, maybe I, I know the date that there. Closing do the renovations. If I I'm sure that I'm sure, they'll still be there like on the last day. And maybe it'll be down to like, you know, by by this shopping bag for one dollar and just take anything you want and fill it up. However, three days ago both of them were gone. And I've been fidgeting with this mystery ever since it is. It is not conceivable. Did you ask anyone? Did you go? Excuse me. Can I speak to the manage? No, because I did not want to give away that there was any reason why I was even taking any notice of these horrible, Android based right that books. Right. It's like did they did was was that the level of shame where they decided that? No, we can't invoke the five megapixel Vidar digital camera that takes compact flash storage, that we can't we can't we will so that to some poor unsuspecting sap, but this Android laptop. So I just don't know. I just don't know. I'll I'll have to. Satisfy mice. There is also. However, they is there is an Android TV. I'm sorry, not an Android TV admi dog, whatever for TV. It is one of those system on chips or things were, it is an Android based commuter that. Over boat. Exactly. Plug it directly to initially, my, my might pick up that again because I've always been curious to see how badly this could be done. Or if the if the simple fact that it runs any version, eight version of YouTube aver of net flicks means that it is actually a credible sort of thing if it runs chrome as well. But again, I'm sure that we're in, like cupcake territory or Claire territory of. I, I don't think there's even a promise it'll run the Google play store credible. Seems kind of unlikely just I, I mean you're right. I should I should ask the staff like could you do idea, they'll be like, what are you latte jobs? What do you, do you have security camera footage? I don't want to not that a I suppose that maybe someone did steal it. And you didn't care because they were terrible laptops. But if someone bought it, I really want to see, like can you see in their eyes? Is what the joy, either a do they clearly look like a freelance tech journalist, who's looking for content. Or are they one of those lost souls that they tried to those are two of the same? Journalist. I'm not saying there isn't any overlap between the two I'm just saying that there are denting marks that would distinguish one from the other. Sure. Pit stains. Would be one being being at a Rite Aid at two pm when most people are at work. You know what though I love being out, when I shouldn't be out it, because it really you get to see a slice of life, you don't usually get to see. You also get to see the captain marvel movie in a half filth eater That's a good point. That's a really good point. Hey, speaking of summer movies. I'm thinking, let's out a little early this episode so that we can make some money for the upcoming. Toys story for L. Yes. That what's next? Okay. I don't know. I guess I have to go see that Dona. I'm Ken refusing to see it because they should deaf after what they pulled with Toy Story, three, I feel as though if it's not like a smokey in the Bandon bandits sort of light-hearted romp. If they if they try to do to my heart what they did fiery. Hell seen in Toy Story three. We were crying thinking it was the end of these toys. It's no, not, not, not just that, but they're all joining hands knowing that we are not escape this. But at least we will we will have each other to the end, and they've at the very again it was. That was like the local anesthetic while they while they while they prepared like the real hit which was saying goodbye to. Again. It was the last movie Dumi. Can they do like a movie like airplane? They do a movie like Caddyshack, you know without the nudity. Of course. Just give me a again smoking in the Bank style. Right. I would love Disney style Caddyshack again. It's like there's nothing I think that one of the reasons why I like the minions movie so much a because it was like a Bugs Bunny cartoon that lasted for ninety minutes, which is I thought I thought it was historically funny. But also it didn't try to make me cry. It said that, hey, we don't we don't disrespect Pixar for going for these heavy emotional, beats sometimes in the first in the opening five minutes of the movie were, to sing that maybe weakened make people happy and laugh and also send them out with a really cool. The with the summer the summer song of the summer, I it would be who picks are to take a page from from from the millions. Okay. Yes, let's definitely make some money for those movies.

So we talk about Google every week on this podcast with this podcast is about eventual eventually listen. That's our warm up. Okay. Andy. That's our time together. And I, you know, wanna let people witness our broderie not. Again, we're we're taking you on a journey. Dear listeners. Come come come. Enjoy the voyage with us yet. This is my weekly meet up with Andy that we happen to a record. Also, monetize. To twenty an unlike other other voyages you will not contract norovirus. Absolutely early would apps. I think you would have to agree with had nothing to do with us. Absolutely very considerable air barrier that we make hopping it's Fe trail, fortunately no water site, which you would get on a cruise ship. So this week, some news came out that is, is pretty hyper local, which I was thinking about this last night before we recorded this morning. I was thinking, like, how am I going to approach this topic? And let people know that it's relevant. So I am a lifetime bay area kid, I was born here. I grew up here. I have never left and I have seen this place morph and so I, I really care about Silicon Valley. When I say Silicon Valley, I'm talking all the companies that are concentrated between Santa Clara, San Mateo county's which are far from me. I don't live there. I live in the north. In the north. I'm always curious to see like how that is impacting the area because all that stuff eventually trickles up to me just a person of the bay area. And the reason I live so far up north is because it's very expensive to live near where all the jobs are. So those of US Middle class folk, we just kinda hang out and commute. And we do what we can to make to make ends meet. So. Do the people like from who moved here to work at Facebook, and Google and apple did they call you like filthy townies like in breaking away where the where called the bridge and tunnel crowd because we take bridge? Yeah, I take two bridges and a tunnel actually, to get to San Francisco. Unless I take the ferry then I go under two bridges. So anyway, okay? This is all digression. But it's just to bring you back to the fact that this week, Google announced that it would invest one billion dollars for twenty thousand homes in the bay area. Now you may want. You may be saying yourself that sounds like a great thing. I know that that's been a struggle for those of you in Barry. I've been reading a lot about housing prices over there. And how ridiculous they are. But I'm here to tell you that the devil's in the details. So the reason that I was spamming Andy with this. Yes, with links about this yesterday on slack is because the, the news that broke out broke out this week on Tuesday, We're filming this on Wednesday is because I felt a lot of the headlines, just kept pointing to the fact that Google's investing this one billion and not exactly what the what the after effects of it will be. Or what actually the outcome will be. So there was official Google blog all about this. It was bylined by sooner Pachon promising significant investments in address. The housing housing shortage of the bay area. So the plan is to move local governments to rezone seven hundred fifty million dollars of Google's land. So Google owns land in the south bay k privately owned by Google from commercial to residential over the next ten years, so Google has this power to do that. Because it owns that land, and it can go and say, we want to do this with it in the blog, it said quoted this will enable us to support the development of at least fifteen thousand new homes at all income levels in the bay area including housing options for middle low income families, by way of comparison three thousand total homes were built in the south bay in twenty eighteen so Google will lease this land to residential developers, but it won't subsidize the construction costs. So anybody is interested in building. They're basically has to do so with its own coin. And also, it's not as though they're donating seven hundred and fifty million dollars worth of land. It is still there land there to simply leasing it for residential development, right? Google also said that it will establish a two hundred fifty million dollar investment fund to provide incentives developers of low income housing. So at least five thousand new affordable units are part of that deal at least, which is kind of small, when you think about it. I'm plus fifty million. New Google or grants to nonprofits focused on the issues of homelessness and displacements. According to Google blog this builds on the eighteen million in grants. We've given to help address homelessness over the last five years, including three million. We gave the newly opened SF navigation center, and one point five million to forcible housing for low income veterans in households in Mountain View. Again. Quote from Google. Our goal is to get housing construction started immediately in for home speed salable in the next few years in Mountain View. We've already worked the city to change zoning in one of the areas to free up land for housing and recurrently in productive conversations with Sunnyvale and San Jose, both of which are part of Santa Clara counties. We're also funding community spaces that provide free access to co working areas for nonprofits, improving transit options for the community in our employees taking nine thousand cars off the road per day, and supporting programs for career development education and local businesses. So that's all great. Okay. From from a far perspective. You're probably going what's wrong with this flow. Inherently there's nothing completely wrong with it. It's just the fear of where this is all going to be allocated. So Google is funding community spaces for free access to co working areas for nonprofits. They wanna improve career development. Where do you think that career development is gonna be improved? It's going to be improved to go work for Google like, sorry to be super cynical. I apologize because I know that we have some folks who work for Google who listened to us. But I just wanna remind everybody like money. Talks money is the big thing here. Okay. Even though they're good people inside company isn't even though there is like an altruistic effort behind something. We have to think about, like, what is really intention of this, and the other intention? And this comes from the chronicle piece, which, by the way, I subscribed to police. Subscribe your local papers, it's very important because they will often report on the stuff that the. Big ones are not s of chronicle peace had very important paragraph. I'm just gonna read it verbatim. There's a self seeking upside in building housing near its offices said, Nathan ho a senior director of housing and community development at Silicon Valley leadership group, a business advocate advocacy group. It may help Google keep employs longer. Many of the groups three hundred thirty member companies say the housing crisis has made recruiting retention harder. We asked them. What are you concerned about for the future of your company? The two issues traffic and housing are fifty percent of responses. Ho said the other fifty percent is housing and traffic. So it's like. The, the, the most important thing is just an and I would say Barry resident that. Absolutely. Those are the things we're dealing with right now is that there's not a lot of inventory to go around. There's not a Ford -able inventory. A lot of what's available is drastically expensive in some things are just grossly inflated. I mean it's, it's wild. And the thing is, it's not just it's not just that there isn't money to build housing. It's also that there is a lot of. Annoying bureaucracy that goes on. I mean every every county is its own jurisdiction every city is its own jurisdiction. So what might be happening in Santa Clara county. Skews me cemetery county is not happening directly in Mountain View, which is part of that county because Mountain View has its own residents when people voting in its own in their own interests. So there's a lot. Yes, I read a story late last year about how somebody wanted to build some low to moderate income housing in the someone who had owned a laundromat for a long, long time. Decided, he wanted to pulled on the laundromat, and build like low and medium income housing and the neighbor or the community forced him are made him is making him go through so many hoops for reasons that I don't really understand. But I recall at the time thinking yet, it's a very, San Francisco way of, of telling someone what they. Do with their laundromat, and that, that made me kind of sad that even when someone has the is doing something that we kind of hope happens where here's a business person who sees that. Well, there is a really great market for, for low to middle income housing. I believe that I can make more money renting to people who are housing housing poor than I can with people who have thirty close and not being able to do it because of every single permit, he has to get every single community impact thing that has to go through. So it's not just it. Yes, it's a big problem of a big part of the problem are like tech bubble. broS wanting to spend fifteen million dollars on a marble dog walk where the homeless shelter is and basically paying for that lot and kicking everybody out that's part of it. But I it's complexes. A complex issue. Well, it's, it's so that's just a San Francisco, that's just in San Francisco, which is for those who don't know San Francisco is a tiny city, it's seven by seven square miles, which is not a lot. In fact, the city the suburb, I grew up in is three times the size of San Francisco just to just to give you like an idea of how much more bay area. This is so I don't wanna make the super like hyper local about like where I live and what's going on. I just wanna bring it up because there was a huge just like pressed mail. Strom male strong can never say that word out loud, but I can type it was a huge press male storm yesterday about this particular topic, and, you know, it, it waivers. I was like, in a Twitter DM conversation with Scott Weiner, whose leg. I he's woulda representatives, California. He's been working a lot on housing and it is a step in the right. Direction because it's better doing. It's better to do something than to just stare blankly at the wall and do nothing at all. But I just want to remind everybody like where where the intention really lies in this, it's that because things have become harder, because it has become harder for Google to recruit people and to, to ask people to move to HQ. They're like, okay. Well, we have to fix this problem on her own, and it's a bummer because that means they bought a bunch of land. So they now own bunch of that land in the south bay that, by the way, the people who live, there, did not wanna, like, build housing on so they voted. It's just it's it's frustrating for me. It's frustrating because I can't afford to live down there. So it's like. So in this is not a personal flow thing. But I do wanna bring my personal spin do it. Because I you know, I, I know people were affected. I know people who are affected by this in, like that's why we're from home. It's so much easier. So there was a lot of this. That's like a number. I had a slapdown cynical Andy, and just to make sure that like when I write my own little. For a couple of weeks. Really? So you're, you're thinking the same things that I were thinking say okay, first of all, Google did not have to do this. This is not going to be a profitable thing for them to do. Yes, as the there's certainly going to be upside in that people. They the people that Google hire to work on the campus are human beings who need to live somewhere. But nonetheless, this is something that they do seem to be doing something that is quite material, and trying to at least do something if not solve the problem completely and yet because gosh, I know so many people who have taken wonderful jobs in the bay area. And like one friend to her, Instagram, like every month and a half, there's another picture of her life with all of our stuff in her car moving from the last temporary place that the company set her up in to the next temporary place. They set her up in while she and her husband are. Still looking for a place where someone who is again. Not exactly washing dishes in the commissary of this company, probably making a very good living cannot find a place where they can live. That is a more than a trivial problem. That is a serious problem. But how did that they're quickly just want to add that a lot of people have also taken, there's a lot of mobile homes now in the south bay, and a lot of the cities in the suburbs are outlying, the ability for people to park their vehicles, which is make even more difficult. Anyway. Go ahead Andy. And, and of course we're talking about again. Friends of mine who've who have the, the incredible problem of having been hired to a wonderful job at one of the huge, the largest companies in the, in the world, that says, nothing about the people who are getting people who are don't work for Facebook, and don't. Work for Google, but they are being completely affected. Don't know Facebook is also doing similar housing initiatives in another part of the bay area. How, how do you how does someone who teaches public school managed to get by in a place where every single rental, and every single per property able for purchase is in a market, where someone who probably makes four to six times, more than a public school teacher is also clamoring times ten for that same space how, however, mostly I was? But again. After after making sure that the, the cynical Andy was not the first person to speak. And then, of course, cynical anti gets his hands on the keyboard, because we don't know it'll be this all be about the details like a I've. Where human beings, not all of us are the best. And so what are the chances that as soon as a low to medium income property comes on the market, someone who can certainly afford a high income property says. Ooh, that's great. I was I was budgeting five thousand dollars a month, but to be able to just pay eleven hundred dollars a month. That's awesome. Or, and this is the thing that really made me sigh with recognition that there are people right now who are building spreadsheets case, they can do that. Like what? Okay. What if I've got a friend who's like Lou income, would if we use his name to get the proper, and then we rented out as an Airbnb, like, I, I hope that there are safeguards in place to make sure that as we've been saying, number number one, this is not just a way for Google to find housing for its own people. It is, again away for public school teachers and people who are not making. Six figures a year can actually find a place where they can raise their two kids safely. And let's make sure that this is not a system that can be gained gamed by all of these people who wound up in this Veli of. Of hype weasel dome and desperation to say this, what if we have an app that figures out exactly where the next blood land is gonna be? And then we know what if again, we have make sure that we have application so that the people that the going to need to benefit benefit, and also that it's also notable that Google has said that it's not all low and middle income housing, there is, of course, going to be some luxury housing mixed into this. Let's hope this isn't these sort of number one. Let's hope this isn't the sort of nominal. We're going to throw in some low income housing just to so we can get a tax credit or just a and build on the space. And number two, let's hope that it's not going to be one of those situations where yes, this building is, is for mixed mixed housing, but the people who are paying the lowest rents have to use the side entrance their kids. Get like the blacktop. A playground that is fenced away from the, the, the rich people's kids playground. It's there's a lot that could go wrong. I'm just I, I will I will end by saying that at least it's not going to be one of those. Google, experimental neighborhoods like they're doing in Canada and other places where and we're going to every every every wall outlet is gonna create free wifi, and there's going to be lighter and every room so we can get the shape of every person. Twenty years down the line. I just want to end by saying that I think it's I think it's commendable that, that Google decided to use this landed at bought to try in and kind of fix the situation Mountain View, because if you know if people are not voting for it, then the next step is to get some to get a big company with lots of money to just kind of go ahead and do it. That's kind of the way it is, if it doesn't go through publicly than the next step is to try to privately and I hope that I hope that this, I hope that this helps the rest of us a little bit more, because I think the big problem was is having. Is having all the Silicon Valley employees living like further out, and then taking housing away from those of us who don't work in Silicon Valley know what I mean. Like they should live closer to work. I don't need to live closer to Google like I don't it's fine. I only go there once a year. Perhaps this company that is promoted collaborative internet work tools, could may be create a campus someplace where it is dirt cheap to live and really, really coop which would be very bay area by the way because. Back in my day. Well, no, no back in my day, if you went to college at Berkeley, you were living in a co op in Oakland because that was the way like how's the way to live because Berkeley's too expensive? Nebraska. I'm sure they're lovely Nebraska. Oh, imagine, imagine making like Google manager money and spending it in Nebraska, and sort of San Francisco. That's and money would go so far. If you if you own a motorcycle dealership anywhere near that town in a Brassica, you are going to have a very, very, your kids are going to college easing. Right. So we're going to move on to our next topic, which is funny. It is it, well, okay at points to a larger problem. But at least when we talk about the actual issue of Google stealing song lyrics, and how they got caught. That's hysterically. Funny. We can we can all enjoy that before the walls, come tumbling down, and we're forced to hunt and kill our own birds for for for for punishment. I don't wanna kill birds. Okay. But again, if the walls come tumbling down, we'll Kim sorry, you'll be different. Tune. So have you ever googled lyrics? Imagine, I would start have you googled lyrics. So if you've Google and the lyrics of come up, and you're like, okay, that's what they're mumbling in the song that works. It's quite possible that those were geniuses lyrics so genius. It's a lyric service, and you might have seen it. If you're Spotify user, it's a part of that have their own app. Not only do they have like a crowd source lyrics, but also like when the musical Hamilton lyrics popped up there Lin Manuel Miranda was actually, like verifying everything and also annotating all the lyrics, but its own. It's, it's quite a scene man, genius crowd sourced, I forgot to have forgot to mention that. So that's why it's everybody is kind of chipping in it helps with the hard to transcribe songs. And when you would look for a lyric, you type in song, name, lyric, usually, these lyrics would come up next to the Google search box. Right. So genius has specked it that Google was cribbing their lyrics. But when they asked the company about it, they did nothing. And so what genius did was they watermarked their lyrics while hiding Morse code in the apostrophes of their lyrics? So we're talking about straight a pasta. Free and curly apostrophe, and the in dash like we like using that to kinda, like create a little more code of sorts and the Morse code spell that spelled out red handed. Which is hilarious. So Google then meet a blog post to explain where they get their lurks from the blog is called how we help find you lyrics in Google search the blog deny scraping sites. Lurks says that they pay music publishers for the right to display lyrics to ensure songwriters got paid. But the problem is that a lot of the music publishers often don't have Cubbies of the lyrics. So that's not really a sustainable, at sir in the blog POS Google written. We do not crawler scrape websites, the source these lyrics the lyrics that you see information boxes on search come directly from lyrics content providers, and they are updated automatically receive new lyrics and corrections on a regular basis. The post also says that we've asked our lyrics partner to investigate the issue to ensure they're following industry best practices and their approach. So to help make it clear where the lyrics come from we'll sud- include attributions of third party, providing the digital text cough genius off. We'll continue taking approach that respects, and compensates rights-holders and insures that music publishers, and songwriters are quote, paid for their work on quote. That's a lot of passive aggressiveness. That phrase, I feel as though some a number of feels a number of people at Google who were directly responsible for having to Bruce that punched a lot of holes and a lot of conference room walls, saying that well. Remember earlier today, when Sundar announced that we were investing three quarters of a billion dollars in addressing the homeless, though, the, the home crisis, and San Francisco, remember how everybody off that. Hey. Wasn't that nice of you wasn't that a great eighteen minutes that we had to savor that before this news story broke Jim, can you bleep out that? Hey google. Sorry. I just realized. So yeah, so Google is basically saying that they don't they, they get their lyrics by deals with the actual publishers. I'm when the deal when the publishers can't come through. They license a lie. They licensed various libraries of song lyrics from third party sources. And they're implying that some of those third party sources were getting song lyrics from from from genius. So, so, so the it wasn't us. I mean, if this is another case of we heard with the complaints about YouTube for a long time that someone had been complaining for years and years and years, and it never actually percolated to a real human being that could address the problem until it became a PR disaster in which case repairs on the Google blog. So let's see how they address this. They they're saying that they are changing their policy where now the, the info box, you get will also mentioned the source of those lyrics that starting to happen immediately. Now they're going to have to be really, really paranoid of. I wonder if they know about the trick where. Another way, you can watermark content is by replacing low Ascii characters with, like high Yuna code characters. So it looks like it's a period that you get just by typing, the period on the keyboard, but it's actually like an international period character. And they can't really claim that they can't claim that they decided just as you did to randomly insert unique owed characters that look exactly like Ascii so that the they got to be really paranoid right now. Yes, that was genius, by the way. See, I if I if I were like a senior executive of that company, some young engineer. I assume will young clever engineer would be going home with, like a hundred dollar gift card to the Honey baked ham company. And if they were vegetarian I would find whatever the vegetarian whatever the soy equivalent of the Honey baked ham company is I just want them to? I want them to appreciate how much we like the cut of their jibs in the form of smoked meats or meat substitutes, until I by the way, makes a really good like failure Turkey, just in case anybody's wandering wondering onto our next little news item. We're just kind of rolling through the news today, 'cause some going on this is interesting, and I'm hoping it points to some future technologies that are on the horizon, so on Android. Police, there was a story. The Google app has started to show in this video bookmarks for YouTube search results. So that sounds exactly like what you think it is so Google. Search for instructions on something can now service, the correct time cue for that task a video and add bookmarks along the time line. I love this because by my job is I'm pretty much how to writer like that's I enjoy. That's what I enjoy doing. I enjoy empowering people with the knowledge to do things on their own. And because the way I figured out on my own, but the way I figured out by watching people's long drawn out YouTube videos about how to connect to computers for dual streaming on twitch, which is great. I appreciate you all for doing that work. But I do not need ten minutes about your setup. I don't care. I'm sorry, I think it's cool. But if I but if I really cared, I would watch the video that says, look at my setup like that's just what I'm trying to say here. I'm trying to decide. Side between if there's one thing that I could banish to the land of wins and ghosts, it would either be people who are doing these videos, who, like are wearing a headset microphone, and they've got the microphone pointed directly at nostril all the way up. Exactly. Like I don't care if you're I don't care. I don't care if I've just been diagnosed with cancer, and this is a video on how to cure any form of cancer. I'm probably not gonna make it through that video. The other thing would be like oh, great. Oh, this is yours a video with, like a like a hundred thousand views and two thousand likes on, on how to pair this bluetooth headset with this. Oh, that's great. Like, okay. So I want to show you. Let's take a look at it. This is the strap that connects the two ear cups to each other. And if you pull quickly could you can adjust them in click click click? Now it has six buttons. This is the power button. That's what looks like when we're losing our listeners. Okay. This. Jim and you include this part in there. If you would like to use your latronic magic to speed up that part of it to ease the suffering. But yes, so, so yes, it's, it's really really cool. It's although is see. This is kind of related to the kerfuffle, about the lyrics where oftentimes Google is doing something that is objectively, really, really helpful and useful for the user where again when I go, I can't figure out how to pair, my apple air pods with my Android phone. I just wanna know am I doing something wrong, or the steps for pairing assessing bluetooth device? And it says, oh, well, actually not only will give you these like ten ranked responses. But also, here's an info box that has the four steps on how to do it. And of course, there's a link to the page. I'm more dot com where it is. But here are we managed to pull out from there, the four steps and how to do that. And for me, it's like, wow, that's great. I finally got these things paired. Thank you, Google if I worked for I more, I'd be like, thanks Google. Thanks for saving. It was it was really really going to be a big problem for us to serve up a webpage with. The entire thousand word article, including the ads and concluding the stuff that makes our money. Thank you for saving us in our servers, the trouble of actually making money from this content that we created. And so the lyrics is the same thing where I kinda wanna know what's the I? I just found out this week that the, the title in the lyric of that really famous Chicago song is twenty five or six to four I was for all of my life. I've been hearing this song, and I just heard it as a stream of clicks, pops and buzzes, I did not even parse as words and maybe I would want to know what is this? What are the lyrics of the song, but you should be taken to the to the genius pates that actually has the entire stuff there as opposed for if you're going to be on the people who put that content up there like last week, we talked about the newspaper industry, and they're having Congress's ear about how they needed the ability to form, a cartel to kinda gang up against Google and Facebook because Google was stealing news from them and publishing it and not allowing them and not sharing revenue with them and last week, there, the comments that are making were pretty ridiculous because. They worked. There were making it sound as though Google was actually republishing articles as opposed to driving traffic to their sites. However, this sort of thing, the stuff that they, they pluck out of a webpage and put it into an info box, or an explainer box. That's the problem because I've, I've as a listener of podcast, and as someone who use a search to find stuff I would love to find out to do a web search for a show-me podcasts in which Tim cook talked about football and then be taken to like an audio clip of exactly where because Google is the indexing doing the speech to text and can pull up within the search box here is the clip here is the show here is the part, which were Tim coke starts talking about football but as the person who creates podcast I don't want them to. I don't want, I don't want Google search to give me a. Little text box about give people a little box explains. What is the problem with people putting the boom mic of their headset to close their nostril? I want them to come to this, the mighty material podcast episode two hundred eight navy listened to a sponsor at. But at least don't think of it, as a nugget of information. But think of it as an a unit of information and entertainment that may want you to click the subscribe button because we make money and we like money, and we have used for money, my I'm not in this. I don't pay as much for housing here in New England as Florida's, but it's still costs money, and that's why I would be worried about that sort of thing. I have to also add to this that I think one of the key things here is that when you're searching for help on Google these days, if you're doing this weather during it from the phone, or the chrome, browser, let's say the first search results are going to get our on YouTube. So this is definitely Google pushing, like, come to YouTube, come watch the videos come do this thing. And for me, it's a little frustrating, because I don't have time to watch video. And, and I don't I'm not always, you know, if you're sitting there frustrated about something, you know, I'm of the old school way where I would go, and I would search in the forums, and I would go in like read, and I would pay attention to that. And I don't really get to do that. Same thing when you're looking through videos, and you don't know of video is going to give you what you want either. So I don't know. I, I understand this is a way to, to get people to go to YouTube and you. His reference. But for me person who just really loves text. It's, it's hard to it's hard for me to think about like usability method. Even if Google is going to try and make it easier on us. But I will say that, when I heard this news very excited about the idea of our podcast being indexed because I'm ready for that. I'm ready for that discovery -bility because folks, I don't know if you know this is low inside baseball, but the number one way that people find out about podcasts in the year of our Lord, twenty nineteen is through word of mouth. And so if you like this podcast, we would, please tell you to tell your friends tell your parents, tell your church congregation tell your swim team. Tell your online forum if, if you drive for lift or Uber would kill you to be playing the podcast when they're in the car. You like we'd really appreciate it. Because that is people discover podcasts in twenty nineteen boy, oh, boy, the desperation, if there's a tone of desperation our voices, that's only because we're close to the end of the episode, but it's not because we're about to be thrown onto the street and, you know, we're still we're okay again and plus again, that Rite Aid that's going out of business. They have a lot of like candy and chips and stuff that seventy percent off. So I am stocked on high-fat Tyke list role high sugar food for Li's originals your joke. But there was there. I said, no to a bag of where there is a candies. They had the head neon blue hostess snowballs for like forty one cents. And so, yes, I had to buy two packs. And I bought two because they did not have three. Let's go to our last news item. Just very quickly if you've ever wanted to build a game, but you're like I don't even want to deal with whatever unity is will guess what? Now you could just do it through Google's game builder. So I know we talk a lot about, like, what Google does go does good things like this, this is this is fun. So it lets anybody create a three game in a Minecraft like interface. So it's a new release inapt for MAC and PC from area when twenty which is Google's workshop for experimental projects not associated with any alien life or anything. It's called the game builder which Google calls a prototype. It's and it's available for free on steam, the verge calls it a video game for making games, which sounds about right? So many people compared to Minecraft just in the sense that you start with an empty playground. And then you drop in three d characters and objects into it the cards dictate how these things function and interact with with you and with other elements in the game. And also because his builder is multiplayer of sorts multiple people can come in and sort of like developed this world. So I could imagine the speed really fun for like a bunch of kids who are bored, hanging around a computer from looking how much would be for, like older people like adults. Yes, Randolph reading creating a game where the game play is you keep changing the rules on people where they think that, oh, look, here's a here's a frappe gun as they, but they don't you don't they. No, that you change the Java script. And now that actually fires a cannon of confetti that sticks with you. It makes you really easy to track or that. Oh, by the way, somebody, somebody turned off the gravity on this hill have fun with that. And, and you figure out how to navigate no no gravity, or you can then change the game to turn on normal gravity, then figure out how to it's it could be. It could be real fund like a like looted earlier, you can create your own the cards or the things that tell the characters in the game. But how do you move what you do? How do you interact with these other things, and they're pre done cards available? The can also use a game excuse me game. Assets from Google poly. So they've got like thousands and thousands of three models Trump in there. And if you know, Java script or you learn Java script, you can create your own card so your own game, mechanics can put in there. But yet sounds, it sounds like a lot of fun. The it's not it's not. It's not something that looks like it will be able to create games. You can then sell like on the app store anywhere. It's looks like it's only gonna be available in steam though, they say that you be you can share your games with other people. You have to compile it. You don't have to just again you just throw a card on a dingus that shows the dingus that you're by the way. You're now you're now a hopping dingus? And when you hop on your left foot, you also tear holes in reality have fun. So it's, it's the only the only thing that. I don't want I don't want to end the show on a negative note on just saying that I have written code I have written the hive written large coating product projects, not for not for a living. But usually just because there's something I needed, and it got out of hand, and I now I'm doing this huge coating product project, or friend of mine has a pressing need and asked me is there an app for this, and I have to reply. No, there isn't. But here's a first cut at tell me what you want change in this. Keep Jiang for you programming is is creative, and it can be very, very fulfilling its. However, it's a very, very lonely. The compiler keeps telling you that you're wrong, and that you're incapable of writing software. It fosters a sense of self loathing that in game developers. I have found they take that self-loathing. And then they project upon the players experience in the game. I believe that quite quite firmly. And so I'm wondering if this if the if the game builder is fun to use of the person creating the game. And the experience is having fun can the thing. They create really be called a game. I guess we're gonna find out. I'm you know, it'll, it'll be I like stuff like this, this stuff like this is fun. It's see my hopes your high. We talk about good things and other things. I always feel this, like sort of sense of dread. When we get to the ended up soda like did we make it like balanced everybody for tuning into material today? I know that we come at you with a lot of stuff every week. But that's because we love Google to bits and we love everything that they do. And we just there's so much going on that we just wanna let you know, everything about it. Because again Google holds up holds up the world at this point Google virtual world. Yep. Exactly all the way down to Mountain View. Okay. On that notes. Andy do you have anything you wanna show this week? I don't know.

Pokemon cards by the way. A magic the gathering cards. I think I wanna say is that I just but I do have just enough dignity not to route through the dumpster to take things out of that. That's that, that was me at age sixteen and seventeen. When I found out that the bakery, I used to walk past on my way home from school used to throw out all their unsold donuts awful. Well, no. Well, see, donate it. Well, they donated it to me and impoverished like fifty or sixty year old and saying that they were just tossed in a garbage bag. It's almost as if they put them in a box and put it very delicately on the top of the trash as for say exactly. So I feel as though I was I was aiding. The economy is so anyway. I invented it just didn't patent it because I'm that kind of guy. So I'm going to be on. I'm going to be on bus public radio.

Truth About Tech In Vaccines, Shadowgate Half Truths, Snowden Pardon & The Oath To Defend Our Rights
"Take out master the. Piece of telling me Ritz Point one three equipped. That's USC everybody here. Good nauseated anyway, USC. Public Health Study. Advanced it. Case in California. Early the lead the. One thousand four, hundred, forty, two, thousand people. Back. So that Mason through one. Studying. So. You're right. Welcome to the daily Rob. A concise show dedicated the bring you most relevant independent news as we see from the last twenty four hours. Sunday August. Sixteenth. Two Thousand Twenty thank you for joining me today. Sorry for the delay to begin their and no- dawn I wasn't mad at you. I'm just mad at myself for being late to get starting and it's not actually my whole to be honest. We're not going to get into the whole thing again, but I'm not sure exactly what that issue is. There's a little work around I have to do every time that happens interesting and it doesn't seem to be normal but that's not for the show today. Anyway. Welcome to the last American vagabond the daily wrap up. Let's get into the show today. A lot to get into on the backup channel. Still no real notes about that today in regards to censorship in all of that, we'll be back on the main channel soon, which really won't change what we're doing but I have a few points to make. Once we get back there make sure everybody out there who you're talking to knows they need to go to the website. I. Mean Right now I have people that are die hard supporters that are reaching out on platforms commenting on show talking about how I'm being censored and they're going hey, where you been haven't seen videos and just. It's interesting and it's I know that we're being suppressed. So people aren't seeing it but I argue everyone out there and most of you already know that that's why you're here. That you need to go to our website go to are mostly decentralized areas because you cannot allow youtube or other silicon valley platforms to be the conduit between what we're doing and whether or not. You're aware that we're doing it. That's an incredibly important point. The website is where you need to go especially once we get past this whole, you know feeding after my domain issue and we can get our server setup that will be dedicated server and it'll be perfect. Situation for something just like that but we have a lot to get into today things about Snowden as you might have expected comments on that really information about this interesting shadow gate discussion, which I'm sure you've all ad Nauseam when there's a lot of interesting things around that. There's interesting points inside that as well as half truths like always, and we'll explain all of that I won't go into foreign depth, but just to give you my take on what this looks like. But we're also going to be talking about masks a little bit only information by the way. So don't jump off because you're thinking we're going to be rehashing everything a little bit of rehashing but mostly everything we're talking about is completely new information making older points with the things we've talked about and vaccines a big discussion on this today there's been a I think I think Derek did a great video on this I believe spirited video on this the idea that the whole the entirety of the false two-party paradigm mainstream media are screaming about how this whole conspiracy theory about microchipping vaccines, of course, as usual making it. It's reductive part of a very broad narrative about just technology nanotechnology any. Number of things they're using an applying right now like actually openly working on as we speak but making it into something. That's ridiculous. Farcical conspiracy theory. We're going to go over that today and show you why it's simply not and give you the full scope of the story which will probably be censored for because they don't like the full scope of the story. They like their narrow view to tell you what to think and as well as how that all ties, Bill Gates Microsoft and this as you were cloud and as I. Have to look at it real quick boomer forget the name of it. The. Accenture cloud as well. What she probably about I think of you mentioned it before but mostly the Zurich cloud we've talked about, but it's all this kind of. The point you always see these things. All of these things can diverge into kind of one grand agenda with seemingly the same players driving everything, and that's just supposed to be oh, just a coincidence every time because these are the smartest best minds around. No it's the people that are involved in the agendas. That's what we're talking about, and of course, we'll talk about some foreign policy to end today because Gaza is being bombed still right now. Right I mean right at this moment, we have Gaza being bought for the sixth in a row in a row the most densely civilian populated area on the planet mostly children early about half children. And six nights in a row they've been aggressively bombing tanks and helicopters and jets. Civilians. or at least a civilian populated area collective punishment and all that war crimes no big deal. The point is that that can't. There's no way we can justify that anybody but there sure as hell trying and your governments are sure as hell trying but let's get into the beginning today and start off with one. Let me stop this article from playing really quickly because. Our mainstream, you know they love to force their audio on you, but let's get into the points today. To start off. This is actually something that I saw. This is actually something that I saw on. Let's see Oh hold on are making I. Get this thing mixed up all of a sudden hold on a second. There we go. Policies about the delay telling you try not to bother you guys with the auditors I see behind the screens here with ob s and whatever else. But I'm very interesting. But let's get into the point. I actually saw this on. Jimmy Dora believe mentioned this. Think about what this says. First of all Senate leaves until September without the deal which regardless of I don't I I don't want them to come to another bailout package for corporations right? That's now that's what that also translates to. But the point to take away from this is in the middle of this pandemic in the middle of whatever you think this is in the middle of suffering Americans millions of people out of work people don't have jobs were struggling over half this country hasn't even gotten the first check, right but the going to take a vacation right time off Senate you guys deserve it. Right it's just obscene to watch them pretend like the. Be Thinking about the point that there's telling us right now that this is the most severe problematic situation we've ever been in an entire story this country. Everything. breathlessly discussing how every action needs to be mass. We're all GONNA die. But. They're going to go in and take a couple of weeks vacation right? I mean it's just ridiculous. I don't even know if it's a couple of weeks. My point is just that it's out it's obscene. It is. It's bothers me more than you know to watch them, put this on us and then turn around and act like it's totally okay that they can put it on pause while they take their time. Pelosi. Can eat rice cream and trump can go have his McDonald, and they're all gonna go reliable not trump but making the same trying to apply to both sides of the false paradigms. But while that's happening while they're leaving I, want you to think about this and I want to start with this today. Obviously was the picture are used in this. This is an important point that I want you to think about across the whole show today. Whereas Congress taking a vacation in the middle of this problem, I do the oath of office that every single representative of our government swears. Police. Elsewhere. President down to the bottom I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign domestic. We've all heard it. Right Braverman. You people right now on this on. On? kind of taking this and making it some kind of oath about what they're doing except for one half of the story. So they're not actually taking on all enemies foreign and domestic they're taking on the domestic they want to focus on while acknowledging the enemies within their own side, right? That's ridiculous. But that's one part of this argument but I want you to think about this throughout the whole thing. Think about the idea of what we're dealing with right now think about the idea of how wildly unconstitutional. All of this and how we are arguably plenty of people on the side of trump's supporters let's just say believe. That I've spoken to Ad Nauseam with many people about this. that. He that he secretly sees the truth masks aren't really that you know he's but he's fighting against the lockdown. The governors of these Democratic Governor Country States are doing things that he doesn't agree with cats no choice but to allow them to do it's ridiculous. Because the core both the practice of everything that the beginning point for everything else. The most important job. To defend and support the constitution against all enemies foreign domestic, and that would apply anybody who is challenging or ignoring or violating the rights of the of the constitution or the rights were we have a are acknowledged by the constitution? So that would imply trump let's say in this case would have every single legal, right? In any way, you spin this to step in and stop these governors that his supporters would claim. He sees doing something wrong. I argue he doesn't care whether it's happening because they're all part of the same agenda. They're all part of the same mask vaccine, technocracy surveillance contact tracing agenda. That's all happening around us whether or not. They give you the show in the shadow game of look we're fighting each other. Right. That's the point. The Real Shadow government is the group operating behind all of them, not just part of them, which is what the whole shadow gate ultimately pointed to despite in the beginning saying that it was both sides and all of this when you really watch the whole thing as I did you come to the point? It's very clear that it's part. It's basically the Democrats and the bad Republicans are the shadow government and trump in his cider fighting for freedom which you know maybe the truth. But the reality is that right this moment were watching those people do things to Americans, Republican or Democrat regardless that the Republicans that Donald Trump these people are not s- doing anything about acting like they don't have the right to stand up and stop the wildly unconstitutional acts that all of supporters seem to think he agrees are wrong. So how do you explain that? Can you the best way you could make that out is that he's willing to allow Americans to suffer these acts for political gain or rather to avoid politicals slight. Bottom line. It is the obligation of every single. One of these people to stop these things don't get to say well, because of fear because danger because virus because anything there is not an Asterik. After that sentence, there is not some caveat to the reality of what that's asking. They have the only the most important job to make sure that stays there and every single one of them is violated that oath right this moment. Take that in. Democrat Republican alike and if you can't see that if you make up some excuse for why one of them allows the other than your blot, you're lying to yourself and your allowing the core deception of all of this to keep you deceived. That's what's important to think about now, carry this across the whole discussion today. Let's talk about Snowden to begin. Now trump has seeing that he's considering a pardon for Edward. Snowden, I'm sure you've all seen it. Now. It's talking with somebody today a friend of mine about this this morning. And he made a very interesting point that I really didn't think about it and it should because it's the most obvious point I think as well as relevant. What does he being pardoned for? Is He a criminal? Did he break the law or did he leak crimes to the American people that they had a right to know about? Right same thing with with with. Assange and wikileaks and the whole scenario. Right so to pretend like he's doing a good thing by pardoning him from crimes that he didn't actually commit is a deception, your pay or then painting the whistleblower as a crime that the president has the ability to say, well, it's okay. We'll let you go for those crimes. No, he's not a criminal. Now look on the side of that argument I can argue I there's I have some suspicions about this whole thing with snowden with the intercept with Grin Green, well, the whole thing. Doesn't mean I know for a fact I'm still going to consider what snowden released and what the what the information showed and what it did for this country but I'm very skeptical about what it all was smart more than anything because of the fact that not even all the information that he actually supposedly leaked has been released, and of course, that's because of the intercept, you know the Pierre Meteoric kind of people out there that are I would argue making sure this doesn't come out but. Nonetheless I'm skeptical for that reason, but I'm skeptical of Damn everything today. Nonetheless, the point is that he didn't commit a crime here. Neither did neither did assange neither to Chelsea manning they did a service for the American people and your government attacked them for it. That's also violating that same oath that really matters more than anything else. But apparently, we don't care about that or some of us don't seem to care about it because we're consumed with our two party politics game because we're winning right as half the country loses or really you'll lose. That's the reality. But. If you're pardoning him and implies he committed a crime. And then that goes down as a precedent right forward. And I do not think that we should allow this to happen I. Think this is absolutely deception. In on that same note I think it's important for us to realize. What. DIFF-? What essentially, what trump has been saying? About snowden. About a lot of different things that contradict seemingly where we are right now. And I think that's relevant. Now, obviously, people can change their minds. Obviously people can decide one. Well, I just disagree I saw some new information and I changed my mind. That is exactly if that's not allowable than what are we doing here? And that applies to trump and anybody else. But. As this says. Washington Post of course wizards that's not the pointer has tweets but trump wants demand that Edward Snowden execution for getting serious information to Russia. So. This is from June twenty-seventh two, thousand, thirteen, call it. Any way you like Donald Trump says, but snowden is a traitor when our country was great. Do you know what we did to traders? Right? So he's implying at a time when we hung people without real without due process essentially that they were traitors or rather that made us at that. Time now, obviously we are. You could argue that they went through some kind of court system but let's pretend like hanging people on the White House lawn when they were deemed a trader was done through process with at the time he's talking about right. But the thing is that always gives you an insight into the kind of thing he sees as respectable. That makes us great because we're allowed to hang people for being a traitor. Now, I'm not arguing that I disagree with the idea of hold a truck. Trader is an interesting term in general a criminal. Let's say somebody who did break the law. Holding them accountable. Absolutely. But trader is something that can be deemed by a political entity. Well, you win against our interest. You're a traitor they're calling a trader and right here he's calling snowden a traitor, right? Anyway. The point is this is clearly what he thought in two thousand, thirteen jump forward and and other was another month. Or another no this is the next day the very next day. How did SNOWDEN? He says with not even a high school education access to top secret US records. He then gave or sold those records trader he says. which by the way? I mean none of that's even accurate. I. Mean the site from. Access to topsy he basically, he's insinuating that he did something with no knowledge about whether or not had happened. That's why only irresponsible. That's the same thing as suggesting that Chelsea manning or rather assange basically four showed her how to do this for it's happened there making things out of whole cloth to to make this. A certain way by the way, this is a two thousand thirteen that president at this time. Today that I would argue is a more accurate representation of what he believes. That it says Snowden if you're such a hero and this is this is again, this is the next month two thirteen come back home and face justice. Right. So again, the idea is being pardoned suggests that he committed a crime. That's the idea guys, and this is what's most important though I think changed my screen, they're a bit hold on. There we go. In reality says you just another wiseguy trader like so you could say, Oh, well, he he said at once and it was just a promotional tweet he said it. And over and over you're a traitor come back and face justice. We want to put you in jail just like the other whistleblowers who dared to tell the truth about our fraudulent government. July tenth Snowden has given serious information of China and Russia anyone who thinks otherwise dope. Right. So he's begin setting the narrative the way he wants it to appear. which by the way is not really accurate he is a traitor. He knew the crime will he fled because you're the government was trying to a coal basically attack him for telling the truth. This is exactly what's happening to assange that you're still doing donald trump right this moment. So even if you pardon Snowden, it's still hypocritical because we very well know that you are going to continue to go after assange I'm Shirley supporters believed that it won't even know half of them pretend that he's already and part of those people think that he's actually part of the problem it's all over the map but whatever you do I'm sure they'll support it now he says again and. This is two thousand thirteen still lying trader snowed now claims that he did not give any information Russia or China. Oh, right. Okay. So you stand as a matter of fact that he did even though that's not what he's claiming just you know it's just it's just ridiculous. It's it's all politics even back then but by this point I argue down thirteen he was already well aware of what was going to be happening in the future in my opinion why doesn't he come home? Then he says jumping still two thousand thirteen October thirtieth obamacare is a disaster and Snowden, as a spy who should be executed. Openly, advocating to execute snowden for telling you the truth about your government. But if it and he could reveal Obama's records, I might become a major fan. Oh, I see. So you're against him because you think he's a traitor, but you're willing to ignore that because he gives you something that benefits you well, isn't that revealing that's straight out what he said that is undeniable. But of course, he wasn't president now. They would bend that into whatever you'd make out to be. He was being funny. He was making a joke he was trolling. No, he was saying that he doesn't care about the morals or the or the you know the the justice of the thing he cares about accomplishing something for himself in his goals, which is most people for the for that matter. But when you're the president that makes a big difference. He's a spy who should be executed right? He's a spy who who trader right? He's treason he should be executed but of course, if he gives me things I, like well. Completely, changed my mind and be a big Fan. I wonder if that's exactly what we're talking about. I mean just think about how dumb that is I mean. I just cannot wrap my mind around how I mean. You're you're contradicting yourself and making yourself look like a hypocrite and fairweather everything in the matter of one sentence. Snowed in tweets in two, thousand, seventeen on May next time somebody says revealing unconstitutional mass surveillance to the press, crossed a line, show them this I. realize what he's saying they're revealing unconstitutional mass surveillance, which is what he did is somehow crossing the line and that's why he's in another country right now because they're trying to put him in prison potentially execute him as trump said as a traitor because he told you, your government was lying to you the same thing clapper went up and said, yeah, we're not doing that and then we actually found out that he lied and they were doing that. No one got in trouble for that either how do we not see people are they're willfully misrepresenting everything calling for this man's execution because he told you the truth and now just because they're playing some political game of roll the dice here. Floating the idea that maybe he'll part in this guy even though that shouldn't even be something you pat him on the back for that should have been immediate action to say you're not a criminal. You did a right thing for the people of America Nope. Wait and hold them in and hold them in the moment until you can use them later down the line. But he says, then show them this. What she's talking about trump revealed highly classified information to Russia foreign ministers and ambassadors. Right? It's Washington Post I. Don't even I'm not even interested in whether the reality here. The point is that this is about Edward Snowden and the fact that trump himself has taken actions that are damn near similar to what he is being accused of. And then of course, the next day follows up in response to that I have been asking Colmey and others from the beginning of administration to find leakers in the intelligence community. Of course, he says leakers for a reason obviously, right because even though it doesn't matter if that person quote unquote leaked the fact that this government was murdering innocent civilians or leaked that they were unjustly overthrowing A. Without any right justice or any kind of legal any kind of legal justification you know Bolivia that his way Syria everything else. The point is that those aren't leakers whistleblowers showing you real crimes. But when you will leakers, you make it out to be something. That's ridiculous. Something that well, you're leaking out trump's. Personal information about his phone calls or whatever and that. Yeah. Well, that there's no crime being committed there that person breaking the law, they just like to blend them together. So they can. Attack People like us want to tell the truth about what they're doing. That's what it boils down to. Now after seeing all of that yes two, thousand seventeen, and by the way, the last ones were while he was president. Is Important to consider what that shows you especially as he's now discussing pardoning the same person. I mean ask yourself does that mean that he changed his mind or does that mean that he recognizes as he literally said the tweet that this is a political benefit for him. As the same way they could after foreign policy, there's no morals. There's no you know the right or wrong of the thing it's about what they need to accomplish if you could bludgeon civilians with sanctions and. Just. Starve to death millions of people in Yemen just which eve, your goals we'll sure why not? Because we don't care about any of that because we're all a bunch of sociopaths. That's this seems like to me. But at the end of the day pardoning someone for something they didn't actually do is not any kind of justice despite how everyone who support trump who frame it if he does do that? Interesting to think about. Now. Continuing on with this in mind. Same idea. Writing to Snowden in the same way. Is. Upholding and supporting the Constitution the same thing as attacking somebody who constitutionally leaks in for. Me Whatever leaks whistle blows at the point is it's an action. Whistle blowing the protected action, which is what he did. The point is. Is it constitutional? Is it protecting the constitution to attack somebody who does something? That's well within the constitution? Obviously not. So there you are breaking this yet again, I'm sure there's an excuse in some manner. Wait whether we're talking by trump over the justify why they're violating this in everything they do or or. Simul. Once on your mouth acting like this is the most important document that we have on the other side of your mouth acting like it's archaic thing that needs to be altered and changed because it's so old and outdated, right? You can't do that. But that's what they do because they're playing their game. But think about how the supplies moving into the corona virus discussion the mask discussion to start out. More than twenty US states now require face masks in public. Twenty. And a lot of these are getting outrageous. Places that are now suggesting even even actually discussing in political circles. With with lawmakers about making it actually mandated when you're alone inside, there's multiple places I've seen opening this up right that it has to be one hundred percent all the time. I don't even GonNa get to an article with it's exactly what they talk about. That's outrageous. especially with what we know especially with the information that we've already shown you about the studies and the fact that it's just not conclusive that coal countries right now are saying that the science does not say what they're telling you that does. But that's not really the point I'm trying to make start out here. The point I'm trying to make is rooted in the idea of the Constitution if more than twenty US states right now meaning the governors and the people, the the politicians that control that state or rather are supposed to be acting on behalf of their constituencies but does anybody believe that's happening right? But those people? Are Violin the constitution. In every possible way. But even if they weren't, let's say even if they weren't, the fact is that they are saying you have to do this or you're going to be fined or put in jail there places right this moment that are actually putting people in jail for not wearing masks have already shown you some of them in the US by the way as well as around the world. So when we see things like this. We see when we see the secretary of defense. Standing in a close circle. Without a mask without social distancing without anything. How does that make sense now to be very clear as I say every time I am not arguing he should be doing any of those things I'm not arguing anything other than how does it make sense to have one of the highest offices in the country openly brazenly Ignoring those. Acting against it violating the law. Unless you. First of all to be clear this Poland so arguably wouldn't be violating small, but the point is that not happening and we know that the same things are happening in. Poland. She people mass all around the point is he's not doing it. He's doing it in the US either. I showed you videos of trump in different people. There's half the time most of the time they're not. They're not distancing not wearing masks good. Find whatever they can do what they want. No problem for me. But how then can you act? How can you reasonably? Justify that the president of the country is allowing other states to arrest Americans are using an unconstitutional mandate that his his followers believe he doesn't agree with. As why? Oh, their openly flouting it. Let me guys this isn't the president of the Republicans. This is the president of the United States. He has an obligation to defend the constitutional rights of every. American. Whether they're under a bit Democrat governor or not by the way there are Republican governors doing the same things. But think about how alarming that is. Here's the here's the point that I the real point that I made the other day here's bill bar in the United States. Stopping at some kind of protest on the side of the road, this was not very long ago. So couple of weeks ago I think. Stops shakes hands, takes pictures. Most of them were wearing masks. They're not social distancing, and again, I'm not saying he should be I'm simply saying that if you can have the the Department of Justice standing in violating the very things that that same department is then essentially arresting people for well art we're talking state level, but at the same concept. How that's incredible to me, and that shows you that they're politically playing this game that they're. They want their supporters to think at the very least that they're you know flouting it. They're openly saying, well, we don't. We don't believe it wink wink and we're not gonNA, do it okay. Then does that not imply that they're openly openly violating their oath defend the constitution of the people that are being are suffering under those acts the Americans that are in prison jail right this moment for not wearing a mask. The people that are in jail right this moment for social distancing that know the mom was arrested with her child for trying to protest I mean the fact that these things are happening. We need to see that these people are violating their oaths and whether or not. You believe that they're playing the political game or not. You need to realize that they're making a choice to allow Americans to suffer the the lack of their rights. For political game. And that is very apparent. The reality is a lot of these people think for some reason that these trump doesn't have the ability to supersede the governor's and that's just ridiculous I mean it's correct in regard to states rights, but not when those governors are acting illegally. If the governor will pass a law that trump disagreed with and trump stepped over and said, no, you can't do that which by the way happens all the damn time in regard to cannabis and whatever else. But the point is that that wouldn't be allowed. But if let's say that governor passed a law that was wildly illegal like let's just make an outrageous. You know that only certain people of certain colors could be out at certain times or whatever just outrageous for today's climate. Everybody would be like that's crazy. Would trump just be like well, I'm not allowed to do anything because he's a governor and I'm over here. Of course, wouldn't obviously we know that's not the case I. Think it's readily apparent that he would step in and he would do even more than anything because of political pressure people be like, how can you allow that governor to be so openly racist, he capable or whatever. He would say something action would be taken because it's constitutional and it's wrong. But now we have all of them pretending like we can't do anything if that doesn't show you that there at the very least allowing it to move forward I don't know what else I can show you. But I'll sure try because we're going to keep going. There's lots talk about. But in the same idea of mass and everything else it's getting overwhelming I mean especially think about this when you have children like this that are wearing now social distancing even children that have like a point. Oh, one percent chance of dying from this. Are being forced to live through this. So again, ask yourself if you if they're sitting here, openly bill bar pompeo trump just kind of walking around with not not observing any of these things. That he somehow okay with allowing children to find themselves in these positions. Does that mean does that bother you that they're not willing to stand up and say that's not okay. You can't do that because we know this is wrong as all the supporters secretly that they believe. So, is he not the president of those children of these families I mean it just doesn't make sense to me. I'm really trying to do my best to break through this one point for people. Because every single one of them or allowing this to continue. And we all disagree with us for the most part I. Mean there's very few people that I talk to anymore. That are just completely gang busters on onboard with everything that's happening right now. As I said about this and this is the first day of school in Texas. Central Texas as they said, photos should be named never listened to public health idiots ever again and remember the point right the solution being worse than the problem and trump came the promise to salute there won't be trouble the problem after everybody was saying that he suddenly got wind and came out and said it like five times in a press conference we're literally living the solution being worse the problem of course, big surprise as all of us told you it would happen. Right? It's. How Wayne Are we going to learn. I said, this is the most unnecessarily depressing thing I've ever seen. I've seen the longtime. In case that was unclear depressing and unnecessary HASHTAG. The solution is worse than the problem I mean, look at these kids I mean know depressing this is for. ME. This look at this loan kids sitting out here. By the way, he's got a mask on you can see the loop around here. So his these kids are being forced to wear masks even as they're not in risk and even as the social listening I mean you know how how, how damaging that's going to be for the Child It's so incredibly important, and by the way, some of these kids this age they don't understand. As he's not even sitting on the X., I mean, it's just this whole thing is out of control and it's illogical. It's not common sense. This is this is breaking what we are. Aggressively rapidly, just completely dismantling everything that we are as a society. Let's just keep going because we may have something or because these the because the numbers that they're obviously not a severe, they said maybe worse. Or the cases go up even the desktop but might get worse. And here's an here's something in This was tighter Thailand. I mean and this guy I'm trying to show you that this is all around the world and of course, these these certain locations you know the the vassal states of the United States and Israel everybody else are the ones that they force the stuff on early. That's why you see the extreme version does slow. So you can get it in people's minds. Nursery children kept alone inside plastic pods to enforce social distancing. Oh, and by the way they're also wearing a mask inside their inside their plastic box because that totally makes sense. Did anybody think this is still reality that this is still totally justified. This is a social experiment on a grand scale that I've never seen before this is. Easily the most alarming thing I. Think I've ever been part of as as a reporter as a researcher. You, most importantly because it doesn't seem it didn't seem to matter how much were aware that it just seems to keep happening and I think that's because we need to realize that they don't care what we think unless we all realize that we all agree. That's what needs to change and the problem is that a big portion of the people. I think that see this at least partially for the deception that it is our aggressively supporting the person who I think is at least partially in charge of where this is going. Yes. I'm talking about Donald Trump in charge is a bad choice word but at least involved. I actually don't think he's in charge much to be honest with the point is that they're ignoring his involvement or the Republican Party. That didn't sound right the Republican Party. Savage crazy entirely like we can't just ignore all of the the real obvious connections to the Epstein connections and everything we could talk about. That is very depressing to me. Actually, I'm GonNa say that image because that's a good one to used for future video. But moving on the mass discussion and again, please keep in mind the constitutional concept. How. All of US unconstitutional in every step of the way violates your rights. Your inherent shall not be infringed rights. ASTERIK UNLESS THERE'S A. Pandemic now. As. Our that works but this is an interesting one that I've already shown you that I wanted to reiterate before we go into the next part, the New England? Journal of Medicine. This was this was this is may two thousand, twenty, right? It's funny how we had so many of these things in two thousand, twenty that they just don't ignore until. They get the one that the kind of says what they want the to say, which is what what we're going to point out in a moment. But remember what this said in May of two thousand twenty not that this, the science clear or that we need more research or any of this stuff they said quote we know that wearing mask outside healthcare facilities offers little if any protection from infection now are obviously now today they're spinning the way they're selling this to people and saying well it. Doesn't protect you to protect other people which by the way is just kind of ridiculousness sense sentiment when you think about it but at the end of the day, even that doesn't really make sense when you understand as I'll show you in a moment that the studies reveal that the real spread of covid nineteen is through the aerosolize particles not the droplets meaning as I've shown you definitively that the master to the pores are too big to stop that and their own science has shown you that. That's important to think about but they say we no no I, find that incredible. We know that wearing a mask outside offers little if any protection and the other way around doesn't actually do what they're saying it does that US says the chance of catching nineteen for a passing interaction and public space is very minimal. Say that the thirties defined significant exposure to covert nineteen is face to face contact with six feet and with a patient with symptomatic covid nineteen that is sustained for at least a few minutes. They don't talk about that anymore. So if it has to be sustained for a few minutes and some say more than ten minutes or even thirty minutes. Guess they just left that part out going forward. Right? It says then the chances pat for passing interaction is very minimal. Why is that being ignored? It says, in many cases, the desire for widespread masking is reflexive reaction to anxiety over the pandemic. Now, the point is things have changed and we have new information, but we really don't. Every time they say that they point out some kind of Meta analysis of things that we've already pointed to. There's not some new all encompassing. How does anybody believe that that would have been done in the last month in the middle of the pandemic Asinine the ones that are doing observational at best. They're not putting together random controlled trials of the kinds of things we're dealing with in the matter of days and months it's it's not happening. That's the point and that's we're trying to show you now this this one goes on to say. Essentially the same idea that they argue that argues for mass which I think the science suggests otherwise, but usually these, but the point is they're saying clearly off. When it comes to protection from infection not their. That's their opinion. Did they could be wrong as always but why is that ignored but? They argue that there's plenty of uses that does do this or does do that and does have facts accept the fact that the same month the same month member the CDC came out and said the exact opposite using random controlled trials evidence from fourteen ran controlled trials. Say That these measures did not support the substantial effective transmission of influenza and specifically masters I just showed you the pooled analysis. They found no significant reduction of transmission with face masks. There's limited evidence for the effectiveness of diverse preventing preventing the transmission whether worn by infected or source control or infected, which challenges exactly what they claimed was the reality. So Kate, they could be wrong. But. Why is that being ignored? There's no new things on top of this that challenge this from any sooner other than old information rehashed and the same ideas we just talked about. That these things in fact have a negative health effect in general. Right so as they're saying here. oh I, thought I had I guess not. But the point is that they're saying you know ultimately that there's little to no negative damage. Not only doesn't work, but there's no damage but that we also know is not really the reality as the NIH has continued to find a keep showing you seven seventy percent of the patients involved in this study showed a reduction partial pressure of oxygen with wearing a mask ninety percent developed various degrees of Hypoxia Ma. Wearing an N. ninety five mask significantly reduce their P. A. O. to level increase the respiratory rate and increase the occurrence of justice comfort and respiratory distress their conclusion was wearing. Five mass for four hours during HD significantly reduced the blood oxygen in level and increase respiratory adverse effects. What are you know as I keep showing you and this one also said the same thing volumes of oxygen consumption and carbon dioxide expired. We're also significantly reduced breathing through n ninety five mask materials have been shown to impede gashes, exchange breathing and imposing additional workload on the metabolic system. It just gets ridiculous. But here's an here's an article from the mirror from June that says exercising with face mask on could prove fatal experts warn but I bet you those experts were very quickly fired and deemed no longer experts because they dared to say something they weren't allowed to say, but it says planes that a mask makes it harder to inhale the quantity of air needed while exercising. When this is a person from the health. Exercise and health physiology. Now, the point is that Dick. As, always they're not automatically right because they say what I think or say something that I think are generally aligned with the point is that it's just more people with more education who would otherwise be deemed medical professionals and health experts if they weren't saying what they don't want them to say, it says when we do have exercise our muscles produce lactic acid, which causes the burning sensation. People. That work out or where that where of what that is what it feels like it is then converted to carbon dioxide and ex hailed. Quite. Interesting. Now I put this one on next point out the same thing, and this is the one of the other nationalities I point to. In regard to the health effects. It says on that same point about the acid and says, the hyper Cap Nick hubcap Nick hypoxia breathing difficulty may potentially increase acidic environment? Cardiac overload. By this. It's actually a very damaging concept to realize what it could do all these studies. You're saying that's exactly what it will do. It says, which may substantially aggravate lying pathology of established chronic diseases. So makes makes you sicker in other ways to? Isn't that interesting. Now, here's another one. This is from the role horth will excuse me World Health Organization from two thousand nineteen and again just this is the point that it's just I showed I'll show you the see you could see this is she would mean I the date was wrong June fifth two, thousand and twenty two makes it wildly more relevant but ask yourself this June. So we're talking bear like little over a month. This is what they said in their documentation about the evidence in regard to mass of course, way down of the middle guidance on the use of facemask for general public it's as there is limited evidence that wearing a medical mass by healthy individuals and households is in particular those who share household with the sick person or among attendees of mass gatherings may be beneficial as a measure preventing transmission so they just don't. Have enough evidence that wasn't June. What are we saying? How can we possibly pretend that they found something new in a month when they've been researching this for decades I mean it's not like it was decades back in the back in the seventies when they didn't have the same technology this was this was two, thousand, two, thousand, ten, thousand, all these decades leading up nine, hundred, ninety s they've been doing these research. Finding the same result over and over and over, and here again is the World Health Organization in June limited evidence that that has any effect on transmission. Says a recent Meta analysis of these observational studies with the Intrinsic Bay biases of observational data showed that either disposable surgical mask or reusable layer. Cotton mass were associated with protection of healthy individuals within household and among contact cases. Now, Grin listen to what that says after. It says there's not enough evidence that says, well, Meta analysis of observational studies get this with the intrinsic biases of observational say. So basically saying that it's not accurate which is why they're not supposed. To be used random controlled trial not supposed to but you should be looking at random controlled trials but said show then it showed what they ultimately generally here, which is what we seem to find when it's random controlled trials. It doesn't seem to give you the answer that they want. But when they observation observe things, which as they point out, have intrinsic biases such as people involved to already think mass work the way they do that they say that they do. The that's the way these that's the pattern we're seeing their observational studies. They find they find what they want random control, which is what they should be doing. It just doesn't come to the same conclusion. We're I. Wonder Why they stopped doing I wonder why that study found one, hundred, seventy, two of only non random controlled trials. I wonder why it says this could be considered to be indirect evidence for the use of mass. The idea that observational studies suggest they work by healthy individuals in the wider community. However, these studies suggest that such individuals would need to be in close proximity to infected person. In a household or at a mass gathering where physical distancing cannot be achieved to become infected with the virus it says results from cluster randomized controlled trials on the use of masks among young adult living in university residents of the United. States of America indicate the face mask may reduce the rate of influence like. But showed no impact on the risk of laboratory confirmed influenza. Again, do not see difference they're. Saying. That they saw an indicator indicate that may reduce it but win in regard to a laboratory confirmed influence they saw no impact on transmission. Says at present there is no direct evidence. Not Direct evidence. From studies over nineteen and healthy people in the community on the effectiveness of universal masking of. In the community now by the way I disagree with that Mrs at the present, there was no direct evidence, but it's this is this is the caveat. In regard to Covid nineteen well, sure because it's new and the middle of it. Now, you could argue that that would change the ultimate outcome, but I don't understand seeing how we know the size of this how it plays any factor. Once we're done into regar- in regard to how it transmits through the mask. But that's what it says on the effectiveness of Universum asking. So there's not no this is the World Health Organization saying that there's limited evidence that has any transmission that they found in laboratory confirmed influenza. There was no reduced rate of transmission and the effectiveness of universal masking. Has No evidence either. I. Mean You know at some point? Somebody's asking me if I could post what the CDC is saying about the masks if you get a chance thinks I'm not sure what you mean by that like I, mean currently. But staring at the organization from June fifth. As they're literally saying the opposite I mean, isn't that just a little bit jarring And all they can say is that well, we've changed our mind. You know we're we're we're the experts writing. We've changed our mind based on what? Is he this is the idea they want a world where they all they have to do is say, here's what you should think and that you do to flee oblige. But that's not how the supposed to work. We I what on what grounds why are you changing this opinion that has been consistent for decades. People a matter of days you did this we're literally saying the exact opposite, the UK government's coming out and saying there's no evidence for this. The evidence is weak and we've always known this and suddenly they go completely changing our minds. I'd like to see why I think most Americans would to actually care about the truth but other other than the actual reality that the science shows that they don't have an effect on transmission and they hurt you in certain ways. There's other ways to consider that might be alarming to you know maybe a little bit nor to various if you consider that this was done intentionally if it was I, mean this is mainstream media channel Five News Nashville Tennessee governor and this is this is new by the way I'm not real reasonably new this was from May but I wanted to include this because this is a story that I bet you most of you haven't heard about. Tennessee governors free sock masks, which is just childishly ridiculous in my opinion treated with registered pesticide. says. I wouldn't wear one and according to the environmental expert. So they gave these to the poor and people that couldn't afford even a flimsy cloth masks or a handkerchief. So, basically yet again, that is the the ninety, nine percent. If you will the people that are here, here's your mask that are going to make you more sick which I'll show you in a second, but then they also included some pesticides in there for good measure. Now says hundreds of thousands of Tennesseans have picked up free face masks provided by the state never suspecting it those mass might carry their own health risk. No even think about the reality that this is yet another reason why you shouldn't be forced to do it. You know they can't just be like, Oh, well, whoops are bad. We gave you something that potentially could hurt you really badly but we have we're going to think about the times right here where they were telling them they had to wear their masks. As. They took it from the government put it on forced to by the government and it turned out it was making them even more sick because of what they put on it. Accidentally of course or actually it turns out it was intentionally but I guess they're arguing that it was still good for you. I'm not I'm not getting it says, but in exclusive news channel five investigation has discovered that those facemasks meant to slow the spread of covid nineteen were treated with a controversial substance that is registered as a pesticide. Says that substance is an antimicrobial designed to ward off odors odors. Now says quote, I wear one. So Dr Warren Porter, a professor of environmental toxicology at the University of Wisconsin. At Madison and a board member for the environmental group beyond pesticides it says nobody wants to breathe in Kobe, but I wouldn't want to be breathing in something that I kn- I also knew could be poisoning my body. And he relatively short period of time and might be having multi year affects my health. What are you know? Is anybody else realize that every single action they're taking? Sure people want to pretend that it's just because you know whether incompetent or whatever. But every actions they've taken thus far has was it led to. Think about it for a moment. It is lead to more illness. It has lead to more problems. The mass lockdowns, everything they're doing, all the actions are taking are increasing the problem. So does that make you wonder if maybe that's the point? Maybe, the idea is to get people sick now sure that sounds outrageous to some people. But don't forget. We're talking about the same government that ad mid they tested on Americans and people abroad two, hundred, thirty, nine times without their awareness using chemical and biological material. But the fact. Think about that. So are we really gonNA pretend like they wouldn't be doing something like that they wouldn't put things in test vaccines and whatever else we're talking about despite the fact that they literally have on two hundred, thirty, nine times on you on innocent people around there listening. We have to consider that that's exactly what's happening right now we just talked about the idea of the the bio enhancement, the moral bio enhancement and what that means. And the reality that they're talking about seat. You know this was in two thousand eighteen. They were openly discussing about whether or not. They should make this compulsory and if we made it compulsory meaning, it's not your choice but that's conspiracy theory to anybody else even though the openly talked about doing just that. But if it was compulsory will by that by that logic, then we should make it couvert because we know people won't want it and because it's more more, you know in the I it's more in line with liberty to do it without them knowing that's actually what they argued. It's pretty disgusting. Okay. Now, we jump forward to the idea that the conversation is wrote an article about. Should we use medication to morally bio enhance people as if it wasn't some discussion Lebron having whole time and it was justified by Covid nineteen like every other technocratic agenda that we see today. Big Surprise. Well, that's exactly what we're talking about right now. Right we're talking about the same concept we are talking about moral bio enhancement, technocratic manipulation, and here we have them doing things like this. Putting pesticides are accidents or otherwise. That aren't you could argue as weeding out the what they would see as the lesser population this eugenic type stuff. Now be clear. I'm not arguing that's what happened. I have no evidence to suggest that what happened I'm just saying it's hard to ignore how of these actions seem to be leading in that direction whether accidental or otherwise. Now, it says, we wanted to get a free bass. Tennesseans who felt like they couldn't afford a mask I mean think about what that means a mask we're talking about like a handkerchief you can buy those for a dollar at the store. Is, the governor's team boasted that the sock masks sock by the way. So which by the way has way larger pores than just about any other thing we're talking about as they came to be known washable, reusable and treated with silver door a non-toxic silver antimicrobial good for twenty five industrial washes. That's your sounds healthy. Breathing in all day because you're forced to by the government, right? It says, but a search of Web reveals. Re Search of the web reveals filings with the US Environmental Protection Agency where silt were where silver door silver doer is registered as a pesticide that is harmful if inhaled and toxic to fish. But yeah, let's put it on socks and make people breathe at all day long. I mean. This isn't credible to me and I can't believe this wasn't a bigger story. On the note, just on this moment just because I thought about it. Same, ideas the other day take a moment right this right this moment. Take a moment. And share this out for me share the link, get it out there bring people to channel I'm I'm interestingly seeing a quick increase in this channel which shows you that there are desperately trying to stop people from seeing what we're doing. By the way, there's all kinds of nuances they're doing. You're not allowed to add things to certain playlists because they know that I could put this video on T. Laugh playlist and people would see it. It's not just like I said, the other day it's not about. Doing something wrong. It's about controlling the information. Otherwise, they would need to do that if it's bottom line but may take a moment like share get this out there for people to see saying come, join us in the conversation. Now Goes on to say. Going back to the article here for you. After the story was posted a PR for a firm representing renfro corporal. Excuse me. said Monday. That the company uses silver door nine thirty that product also registered as a pesticide. Causes moderate I e rotation and is toxic to fish. It is listed as being approved for non-food contact uses in industrial and household woven and non woven fibers. But here they are breathing it in all day long. Guess what though Silva doors a dupont product what are you know? One of the most I mean the one of the most obvious ones that come to mind and there was a movie about it not too long. Was the idea of Teflon. And groups like Dupont that knowingly and I mean knowingly continued to make and sell enforce this stuff on people even though every single study they found showed that it was wildly toxic and they covered it up, they hit it and they kept pushing and there was lawsuits if people were dying and they kept covering it up and at the end of the day, they didn't even really out accountable. And they're still here today guess what and they're still aggressively tied with the government. How does that happen because your government doesn't care about stuff like that? That's the reality and here's a dupont chemical somehow being forced on people in a weird way that doesn't need to be their big surprise sort of like every other reporting to now it says while it's true it affects the cell membranes of bacteria, which is now their argument for why it was there. That means it can also affect cell membranes of anything else in the body including your nerves or anything else. Good God I mean really. Just think about how crazy that is. No one got in trouble. No one was held accountable. I imagine people were dramatic probably really hurt by this. Is this in by the way that they probably they probably made it and I said Oh it's over nineteen. Oh, you're having problems breathing Oh, you're evan weird bleeding you're is probably covid nineteen except that they were breathing in a pesticide for day in and day out it says New News Channel Five investigates no no excuse me invest. It does say that Channel Five Channel News Channel Five Investigates Oh against that they're that's what they're called New Channel Five investigates noted that Dupont says that silver door is trusted and safe and porter laughed about that. Nippy, you know the professors and the people environmental people he. Says well I'm afraid to literature would not agree with that, and that's always how it goes the reality that the literature you know with glyphosate or GMO's or any of this stuff simply shows you the reality and they just go pay someone to say that opposite and that's the one they point to as long as well as the government we why again because your government doesn't care about you because they've been pretty much as I can tell seemingly have never cared about you and continued to be what's the benefit of their lobbyists and the corporations and whatever other nefarious agendas were staring at today but watching this. Is just another reason to consider why you shouldn't be doing everything telling you to do and on top of that, I wanted to make sure reiterate the reality of what this one of the most important in my opinion studies from two thousand fifteen from the NIH shows us. The idea that cloth masks are dramatically more dangerous for you according to the NIH which by the way I keep asking i. don't see anyone anywhere as done a study that even remotely challenges what this says. You know why? Because it's the truth because it's very clear that it's the truth and it's very talk about common sense there. This is this that shouldn't by the way it was only common sense that made me tell you this it would be. Just as dumb as the argument that it's common sense to wear masks the it's common sense. Yes. I agree with this but here's the science y and that's the point you don't have that on the other side they say they do but I'll show you the science and whites the opposite but here's the point for those that haven't seen it. This is a really important point if you save one one study that he should point out to people today. Put this chat right now this one because this one is talking about white cloth masks the by the way which about ninety plus percent of people wearing masks today are wearing cloth masks because CDC is recommending across the board cloth masks almost as if they want you to get sick right as we can show, you hear that the NIH themselves, which by the way, the CDC would be aware of as well as the NIH as well as as well as Donald Trump's administration that the rate of influenza like illness. Is Statistically significantly higher with cloth masks. Right. That's a big deal. Says, cloth masks also had significantly higher rates of influenza like illness compared with a control arm. Bethany the basically saying the control arm of people with nothing. The cloth masks made them more ill that's what they found in the study. It says that significantly higher. And analysis by a mask you showed laboratory confirmed viruses were significantly higher in the cloth masks group can pair with medical masks, and as I always point out, it also shows you that the penetration excuse me penetration by. Droplets we're not even talking about Aerosol here, which is by the way. How would spreads? The droplets which they're claiming is what the mask stops. Right? The meth they're saying, we'll your cloth masks were you like they just said it protects the other people not you right Well the problem is that right here and I study shows you that the cloth masks which the vast majority of people are wearing because the scenes tells them to allows ninety seven percent of the thing they claim it stopping to get through the mask. Anybody please challenge and tell me why that's wrong. I'm not saying by the that that's one hundred percent back. But what I'm saying is that's what h found in regard to cloth masks and I'm not seeing anybody anywhere challenge what this is saying, and by the way medical mass forty, four percent of the time they're conclusion cloth masks. They cautioned against the use of class at all. At all, it says, this study is the first random controlled trial masks. And I'm not seeing anybody follow up. They're cautioning this their finding was don't use them and they did anyway, not only that they recommended him for everybody across the board to be the one they used. And of course, it says it is definitely important finding to inform occupational health safety, which they didn't care to listen to or rather chose to ignore. Says Moisture. Retention Reuse of cloth masks and poor filtration may result in increased risk of infection. Now, at the point is most your retention reuse of cloth. Yeah. That's exactly what they're saying as my brave thing for. There we go. Is exactly what they're saying is the benefit here. Where they said right here where was it right here Son of a gun. Right here. Right. Well, they killed their washable reusable. That's the point and I also showed you a study that I'm not GonNa grab right now that showed you that the after the third wash, these things that come upwards of thirty percent more bless effective the poor's get bigger. So the more you wash the worst and of even if you haven't watched it worse, it's already bad for you. The point guard is to really realize that I want people to hear me when I say this the people you're talking about know about this study, they know what that says and they know what it means. So why is that not playing a factor and I'll tell you what if they have something new, which probably people want to believe that they want to believe these people there must be some information that we don't. See. Sure. That's possible. Why aren't we talking about if that's the case and people like us are screaming about this is bad and this is what's happening and only to a sensor videos why don't they come out and say, well, here's the new study that shows that that's not correct, which is Kinda what they're trying to do with the other argument even though that's not actually what's happening because there's not in your studies. Ask yourself why? Ask yourself why why would they not want you to see this or why would they rather? Obvious answer. One because it looked really bad. If they somehow just didn't know about this and now they're forcing this on everybody what by the way could be a huge lawsuit. Or it shows you that my opinion. To, some degree somewhere on decision tree, they wanted you to be more sick. Tarred not to see that. But Open. But wait here's a study from June twelve from San Francisco Gay to saying study study one, hundred percent face use could crush the second and third because now we're now, of course, we're going to have a third and fourth and a fifth, and it's going to be forever or you're not getting the wind here guys this is four ever the third second third wave. So basically what they're saying and this is the point if you wear them all the time one, hundred percent. In this arguably is talking about. Everywhere that it's mandated not necessarily in your house, but that's that's already happening by the way. So if they do mandate inside your house, this would be added the argument one hundred percent face masks ta everywhere. It's mandated times. Everybody knows other child elderly we're sick anybody healthy doesn't matter. Anywhere. It's mandated will stop it all they're claiming and it says where face covering and again assess indoors outdoors on trains and buses at work in the supermarket and at Church. So be let's not pretend like they're not talking about everywhere. Now, it says to ward off resurgences the reproduction number for the virus. The average number of people who will contracted from one on one infecting person needs to drop below one. I don't know why in the world by the way, we would trust any numbers of any kind coming from any of these people but to each their own researchers don't believe that achievable with that's achievable with lockdowns alone, and of course, this is again taking at face value or just assuming blindly that lockdowns have a positive effect despite the science and the data showing the opposite but no one will address that until we're way past this. As a keep showing you the lockdown spiked the problem after they did it everywhere across the board even when they started them at different dates, we saw the same dramatic increase after the lockdown big surprise. This is however a combination of lockdowns in widespread mass compliance might do the trick again. Here's where we are. Did Not notice what saying there. It didn't say well, if only we mirror mass alone, then we'll all be good. No, they're saying if we were mass and lock everything down, we'll that would have an effect that is a easy way just like saying, well, if you wash your hands and wear masks, we see in effect obviously but when you do the mask alone Weirdo suddenly you lose. That statistical effect when you combine it with something that we can clearly see has an effect what you masks suddenly Evan in fact, that's why they blend these things together. If he wanted to see, you don't frame your article only about face masks and then point to things that are doing studies on the combination of face masks and lockdowns because that is an active effort to manipulate your perception. There's any number of studies out there that in fact, only look at mass and guess what? I've shown them to you but they don't WanNa show those because it doesn't show you what they want you to think but it says quote and this is in the study which next we show that when face masks used by the public at all time. Not just from when symptoms first appear. So again, understand healthy alike all the time. The effective reproduction number can be decreased below one can be. So again, it's hypothetical re because by the way we haven't done this with code before in general masking the entire population leading to the might mitigation of EPO, epidemic spread. So again, we're taking guesses HYPO HYPO educated guesses or otherwise from the very same people that told us we were all going to die in the millions of people. And we wildly overshot that. And you get these halfhearted attempts to say it's because we did this that even though it's very clear that even right in the beginning, it was not even close to what they were saying and we were barely doing anything in the beginning. And I story that that was probably the way we should've left it but either way. But it says, the scientists wrote this in a paper published. On Wednesday, by the proceedings of the Royal Society a now here's the study. itself, and again, the real point I want to make a modeling framework to assess the likely effectiveness by the way likely effectiveness of face masks in combination with lockdown. So that's just entirely deceptive because you know what ninety nine percent of people are going to read that and move on. See We. Knew it. We knew they work because study says according to the gate. That's good research right there. Right. That's what most people are doing and then telling themselves that they're educated and they did their research because they read the headline of mainstream article of enright of our mainstream entire apparatus that lies to you as a matter of policy. But. Here's what it says and by the way I point out that they do mention here that they did both but I'll show you the the point is that they didn't ultimately use that in the finding. But here says, we are interested in what benefits face masks or benefit mask could offer as a non pharmaceutical intervention, a specially in the settings where high technology interventions like contact tracing and mobile APPs or rapid case detection vm luckily, molecular molecular tests. I always always harbored that word are not sustainable. So the point being is Until we can if the wildly invasive and unconstitutional surveillance apparatus that we're building doesn't work well, then we should discuss the mass discussion. which is to think that stuff's afford on conclusion all of these things mobile APPS, and contact tracing rapid detection, which is never going to go away I mean, I don't know why anybody could even pretend to think those things won't be continued to be there which are going to be violating the rights and medical pre crime and all the stuff they're already working on but it says here we report the results of two. Mathematical models and show the fat face mask used by the public could make a major contribution to reducing the impact of covid. Nineteen could make a contribution is not even close by the way to what they're saying there. But the point is what they're are you get to the real point? is about the combination of lockdown with the mask use? said, their intention was to Brian Simple modeling framework and examined the dynamics of Cobra nineteen pandemic when Max worn by the public with or without imposed lockdown. Now, that says that but that's not ultimately they did those studies but their findings as by the way I read this in its entirety which I hope you do well. Does not actually translate into the findings that they're representing. The point is simply about mass with lockdown showed an effect and that's what they report reporting. Now it says we it says. Under certain conditions when lockdown periods are implemented in combination with one hundred percent facemask use, which is crazy how it went from. You Know Mass on the people who are sick to suddenly everybody all the time or none of us worked like recognize the same narrative flow was vaccines. It went from you know we just get enough for her immunity always just just get your vaccines and then you're good from the problem. No well, now, everybody across the board way to have these are now never return immunity. Isn't it? Funny how that change long time if these things work why then do we need to make sure everybody else gets them for to work for you Right, we don't like the argument was always the what about that one kid that doesn't he can't get them. We're doing it for him right? It's because it's about profit. It's about control about any number of things. It has nothing to do with the idea that just all of a sudden one hundred percent needs to wear this or won't work I mean that is silly. I mean even suggests that it's not as effective as they say that it is think about that. But. It saying implemented com- combination with face masks us one, hundred percent. There's vastly less disease spread secondary and ten at this with that's locked out by the way according to their hypothetical study and says, waves are flattened and is brought under control. Now in remember that this be clear that this is not real world as as the effects occurred even when it is assumed that face masks are only fifty percent effective that's awesome by the way says. Bass mask used by the public. Has Been suggested to be ineffective because whereas made a faces more often. Thus increasing the potential the probability of contracting covid nineteen is going to throw that in there. And then don't address it anywhere else isn't that lovely seems like a huge point to consider, but it says for completeness Armadale show that facemask adoption provides population level benefits even in circumstances where wearers are placed at increased risk. Think about what they said right there. Are Model are models models hypothetical show that face mask adoption provides population level meaning. You know the greater benefit for everybody. Even if it hurts people some places, it says even in circumstances where whereas a place at increased risk. So, because of the hypothetical, see the model and hypothetical. The hypothetical gas that these will have an effect because of our models it's okay to put you at a higher risk. That's what it says right there. No says when used in combination with physical distancing or periods of lockdown may provide an acceptable way of managing pandemic and reopening up economic activity a key message from our analyses to aid the widespread adoption of face masks even though they just basically said that it's with lockdown would be. This is the overarching misrepresentation. My Mask protects you your mask protects me. Right that's the overarching thing. That we can assume that's the case. But. The reality and first of all this again, this is from where was the date again on June tenth. Okay. This is one of the most recent followups. April, we have April May and June. I think the most we have some of these meta-analysis. This was one that was done at the behest. This is one of the CDC willingly ignored. This wasn't attack. This wasn't disparage. This wasn't even politically forced to retract. This is still available is still valid from the National Academies of Sciences. On April Two Thousand Twenty rapid expert consultation on the effectiveness of face masks. Again, this is the same kind of thing these they basically went out they gobbled up all the things that we're already showing you and then just decided to say. Alter different than what those things actually found based on their new perspective on new information that they're not really showing you. Now, this went through a lot of information that kind of goes in the middle but the point was the conclusion at the end and I want you to as always read it for yourself. But. This is in particularly particularly relevant to that one point my mass protect you your mass protects me. Here's the conclusion to to the major study compiling all the information at the CD for some weird reason chose to omit without telling anybody maybe because this is what they found. There are no studies of individuals wearing homemade fabric mass in the course of their typical activities, which is port meaning that. Whether we did a study of a random controlled trial in a laboratory, it's different when you do one random control still. But when that's inside of individuals homes, which is where this is happening. So that's an interesting point start off. There's no studies of that. So yet they're still telling you they know, but it says, therefore, we have only limited indirect evidence regarding the effectiveness of such mass for protecting others. which is the whole point they're saying win made and worn by the general public on a regular basis. Okay. So. How in the world can this not be factored in when this is one of the leading groups they reached out to did a Meta analysis, the CDC always stuff talking about, and they simply say that there's not enough evidence. Of the effectiveness of these massive regards specifically to protecting others. Okay, we'll hear they're saying, well, it's not about protecting us, protecting other people. But here they are saying, they don't protect the people. So what are we talking about? Not says. The evidence from these laboratory filtration studies suggest that such fabric mass may reduce the transmission of larger respiratory droplets. which is not even says, may by the way, but of course, we showed you the fabric ones as we showed you in this study that ninety seven percent of those droplets did not. -St get stopped. That's a very important thing to remember. But then What it says is there is little evidence regarding the transmission of small aerosolize particulates of the size potentially exhaled by eysenck dramatic or pre-symptomatic individual with covert nineteen. So the point is the one thing that we know and it even stresses that which I guarantee. That's why this article was ignored because it makes it incredibly clear impossible to ignore. That the very thing that spreads over nineteen as they then point out the small aerosolize particulates the size of potentially failed by people go for nineteen. They're saying there is little evidence regarding transmission of that. So we don't know. It says the extent of any protection will depend on how the mass are made and used. Okay. So maybe they said, well good. Let's tell them to wear the ones we know don't work. Think about that. Now, it says the current level of benefit if any is not possible to assess. So tell me how it's possible that the entire the entire, the National Academies of scientists, engineering and medicine. Can say that there's it's not possible. They say not possible to assess whether there's this has any effect on transmission, and yet we have other scientists and the CDC in the NHL suddenly in the world other guy suddenly saying, well, we know. But yet they said it wasn't possible. I wonder again, openly why the CDC chose to ignore this one. That's pretty damning. Wouldn't you say? But then but then we have the US surgeon general coming out and saying we'll roll virus facemasks promote freedom. So, after everything, we've talked about the fact that we the studies that they're lying to you about the reality that the science isn't there that we've shown you the science and the fact that they're the idea of their conduct oath to the constitution is just. It's obscene the way that they're violating this right in your face but now they're even coming out and literally telling you the opposite. Right wars piece ignorance is strength guys. Face mask that we're forcing on you that violates your constitutional rights actually promote freedom. It's it's it's so incredibly insulting to our intelligence. June fourteenth. He says the US surgeon general it says the US surgeon general on Sunday urged people to wear face coverings saying they will promote freedom during the pandemic some field face coverings infringe on their freedom of choice but if more wear them think about this. Some feel that face coverings infringe on their freedom of choice freedom of choice by the way? Are you kidding me like there's a there was very deliberate for him to say freedom of choice no, that's a degree violation of our constitutional rights like straight up like that. There's no way that is that is insulting in and of itself but he says, but if more wear them, we'll have more freedom to go out. Well, if that is not the the most disgusting bastardisation of the words and the meaning behind all of that that is that is propaganda one. Oh One. You'll have. So basically, if you do what you're told, which violates your rights which you have no choice about well, then you'll have more freedom to go out once we allow you to go out. This guy should be this guy should be fired. This guy is a traitor to the constitution. For going for towing the line of the obviously the very thing that violates his oath what's but they're all like that all of them. He says, it says, he said face coverings lead to less a symptomatic spread of the virus except that we just showed you that's not what it says. The face coverings lead the less dramatic spread. How can you even know that if you're talking about people that are asymptomatic, which means you don't know they're sick does not seem stupid but I guess we just trust that they know that somehow which leads to more places opening sooner. By allowing US Open meaning it's not freedom you're telling us what we're allowed to do and win. We're allowed to do it very different and says it's exercise and promote your freedom by choosing to wear a face covering Sony how he says Exercise Your Freedom Bull. You're not allowed to exercise right you're not allowed to go to the gym but your free we're a mask because you have to your free. Ignorance. Is Strength. Freedom. Wars piece. That's that's just it's just so obvious where we are right now. Oh. But don't worry though because the entire Silicon Valley leadership group will they're telling you that you're a hero? You are master be a hero where masks why would the entire Silicon Valley leadership group needed to take an entire page ad to say where a mask be a hero? Does it agenda here guys saying front page advertisement. It's clear. It's clear how this is driving. From the same people by the way. As they're telling you to Mosey yourself and stay quiet and do your told a group from that same Bow Valley Silicon Valley has a serious plan for creating guess what a totally New, York Stock Exchange because that will save us from Corona virus. Right. Yeah just just don't don't question just trust that all they're doing is for your best interest, right? Because this is a reimagining of our reality you're the new normal right because the stock exchange was the thing causing curler we're going to revamp everything. This is a remodeling your reality around you and pretending like it's over nineteen that needs to change it. Why? Why in the world with this even being discussed right now. If. You can't see why that's relevant than I just again, I don't know what else to show you. If you think that the World Economic Forum and all the people involved are actually thinking that it's important right in the moment in the middle of the pandemic where people are dying around the world to say, well, Hey, we're going to remodel the size change. Yeah. Everyone cares right I mean, are there not more important things to do the point is that is what they're doing. This is what's happening right now. Under the guise of covid nineteen, that is the point. It's the the great reset, which by the way, Derrick rose is working on another great article about right now. It's kind of alarming. How obvious it is. It really is kind of disconcerting because I'd like to believe people can see how clear this stuff is. All this'll be free to read, for yourself. On top of that ABC is saying well, guess what and this is just the most confusing thing. One of the most confusing developments I would argue in the in the narrative. Because right now, it's pretty clear that they're coming down hard. You have to wear masks the vaccines arguing openly whether vaccines have to be mandatory as they pretend that we're crazy for even suggesting that which we're gonNA talk about next. But this is just incredibly contradictory to the whole thing and how does this in because what happens when the starts or happened in our has already been going on they knew people who have been infected with over nineteen and recovered are protected for up to three months and can safely interact with others according to the guidance despite the fact that the CDC is wrong about cloth masks has already gotten any number of things. Wrong. We're just supposed to trust this now because that's the only thing you're listening to or were a World Health Organization. But I mean first of all, how do we know a habit? Right? As we already know that we're being told the numbers are wildly all over the place the PTR test is accurate. It's getting false positives all over the place they're conflating antibody test viral test I mean any number of things we've already talked about. So are they actually infected and recovered or they just never had it the first place I mean who knows but at the bottom line to suggest that people who without a vaccine by the way or anything else? are suddenly okay for weirdly three months. I guess then they can get it again which then perfectly. It's perfectly roles right back into needing a vaccine again, which ultimately the same idea. But in that three months, let's all of a sudden. This starts tomorrow as we back. Will you can say well, I just recovered I've good for three months. Can you go out without a mask? Can Are. You allowed you. What are People GonNa, say, well, your show me your milk says you've been recovered right? Nobody's GonNa care. So what is the point? Is that this this? Control Network of whether it's wearing masks or staying lockdown or allowing to go on certain places certain times early certain ways on certain aisles or whatever. All of this stuff is just gonNa be there forever. Whether or not you recover whether you've got the vaccine, any number of things except except when you get to the point to where they can give you some fancy Qr code or stamp or whatever else, and then you can prove that you got your special vaccine. Which is the point which is what all of it builds toward. If you're fine and three three months three months of totally. I mean the point is you should be able to do whatever you want. You should be able to do you want right now because you're a free human being. But this in my opinion just meant to suggest. That they're doing things that are helping you, but it doesn't go away. It's always always going to be here. But. Don't worry. It's getting a little better is a little better but you're still in trouble in your stall in lockdown and be afraid still, but it's almost getting better. But. You still have to take the vaccine. Now that's how I see that as always take come to your conclusions about it bright but the seems pretty on the nose. To kinda give you a little bit of hope but then suggested Dow it's GonNa come back though. So it's just a cycle it's a cycle of control it'll never go away. As the ECON-, the economy's being built around this new stores. New Matt I mean right now I just I was just reading something like thirteen million mass day are being produced in certain countries right now first of all, think about the pollution, we were just talking today about the mass of the gloves, how many are being used daily right now do you are how bad a problem that was before we got here and now people are dumping mask and gloves at an exponential rate. We're destroying the we're on a hyper path destroying this planet more ways than we're even aware of right now we are polluting the planet at such an exponential rate with all that stuff that it's disgusting. But whatever right people can argue that we're using less or using certain things and it's a little bit better here they're the end of the day. The kind of plastics and problems were pumping in because of this I argue is making it way worse. But. The vaccine. is where it's all leading to. But apparently, as we're kind of being told all of this is going to go away. It's all going to magically go away. Once they have something that we've never used before it's never been tested. That's. That's actually not even medicine, but you know the way for all going go away. But the big argument is that don't worry though we're not gonNA make you do it even though at the same time, we're openly discussing how if we don't get enough people? Well, it's not gonNA work. So let's go ahead and pumping billions and trillions of dollars around the world into this thing, and then just hope that people do what we ask them to do. Does anybody believe that's real? They're really going to allow this much money and agendas and plans and everything the role into this, and then just crossed their fingers that enough people take it to make it viable. That's just as the most naive thing ever heard my life. The point is that we already we already see people like Dershowitz and others openly saying that they don't even need to make any kind of law right now they can make you take this vaccine if they want to based on precedent from the country in the past. And yet when we talk about it, we get treated like crazy. I mean using the Hashtag gas lighting for tyranny because that's what they're doing. This article says doctors lay out the plan. To punish people who refuse corona virus vaccine. There is no alternative at says now, by the way, this is the the the this is an article, not this article but what this article is referencing the USA Today article, we've already talked about. My already went overseas but nonetheless, it's that important of a point that I wanted to reference and I'm glad that other art sites are talking about it. As I said but please continue telling me how even the idea of mandatory vaccination via mandate or social financial exclusion that's important is dangerous conspiracy theory. Hashtag. Gas Lighting for tyranny. 'cause understand it's mandatory whether it's mandatory via mandate or law or social financial exclusion. Right using social credit systems like China even though we pretend they're the worst thing in the world it's exactly where this is going. and. That's the point as this article makes glad again to see other people talking about this, and here's the one. This is the one we already mentioned, and you remember we talked about this because we pointed out that they make they say it's patriotic to force Americans and take something want because I pointed out that that's also the claim that trump made about the masks. He finds it to be patriotic to do the thing that most of his supporters don't agree with and that is being forced on people against their will and is a direct violation, every constitutional rights but sure it's patriotic. But defeat nineteen by requiring vaccination for all. It's not American. It's patriotic. Again, we already went over this but good to see Claire hear writing about it because it's important to people see this but think about how crazy it is that we can visibly see the discussion. And they'll still pretend like you're out of your mind for even talking about it. The reality is they are one hundred percent from. High places right now openly discussing whether or not. There should be something that is forced on Americans one way or another for your own good right and it's not something that's hard for them to argue they've always they've used it in the past right as long as they can pretend like if a don't force it, it's worse for everybody will they'll just pretend like it's justified. It's never justified no matter what you cannot violate one person's rights for the benefit of everybody else. Now people can argue this this is a a a Not so much moral but a ethics ethics. Dilemma. Writing the idea the same idea like the classic if you could go back in time and you know murder one person and save of all this many others or whatever would you do it and at what point would you make it? Okay right. Can you murder ten to save a million? Can you know one to save one hundred, million you know at what point do you re? There's an ethics question there but at the end of the day. If we're actually going to protect believe and and. And engage in what the Constitution really is it shall not be infringed. In Rights. Then we just simply can't pretend that goes away when we want it to. That's it. There's no way around that. You're either constitution you either believe in it or you don't there's no way you can pretend halfheartedly. But that's what's happening right now but a lot of people. Now interestingly. The doctor who wrote this article or was was quoted in yeah. It was one of the people who wrote it. Mr What's his name here? Michael Lender men. Right there. The first one. Guess what? Michael Lederman surprise surprise. IS A. Bankrolled by Big Pharma as the article puts. It. But as as one of the doctors who argued for mandatory vaccinations recently in a USA, today op ED is being bankrolled by Big Pharma creating massive conflict of interest, which they seemingly don't care about as long as you're on their side for the self professed medical expert. Now remember this is that the same scene? Operation. Warp. Speed. Monsef. Allowing you trump appointed being our vaccines are all the same people tied to all of all of the interconnected. There we have. We have voucher working with. We've got Monsef Salau we who is part of Maderna's circles I mean it's all connected. So we're talking about the same thing. This guy is openly advocating for this action. He's aligned with big Pharma. They're pushing vaccine and so is trump's administration is so all of this now no one. No I'm not argument that trump is saying that it should be mandatory. But. That doesn't change. The fact that the momentum is clearly going in that direction. Now. The same concept here. Let me ask you this. If suddenly Gavin newsom started forcing vaccinations on Amir on on Americans in. California. Do you think trump then has the right to step in and stop him the answer is yes. Because that's constitutional. But why does one make it okay and the other not why is he not allowed to step in and stop the mass mandates with lockdowns or other things? According to his supporters because the governors have the right, right? No, it's unconstitutional. There's illegal acts. They don't have the right and the same way with vaccinations. If that started happening, I would hope because his supporters probably believe this that trump would stop them from making it mandatory. That's what I keep hearing from them. He says it won't be. But the military military's GONNA put up won't be mandatory. My fingers across sure as Hell Hope Not But if they are anywhere. It's on him as the president to do something about it. And if he doesn't, then you have to admit that he's at least allowing it to happen I argue is part of the plan. Now Dr Letterman. Co wrote this article defeat covert nineteen by requiring vaccination for all it's not un-american. It's patriotic which was published today. It says Dr Letterman's ties with big Pharma. Go back many years as he was as he has soaked up millions for pharmaceutical corporations to fund his medical research, he received two point five. While I'm assuming pretty sure it's million dollars. I was looking at this earlier. Yeah. It's million in grant money from Gilead Sciences Gilead by the way one of the groups that was clearly tied with the anthrax false flag. Right? We know the Donald Rumsfeld made all millions of dollars from Gilead in regard to that that whole thing conflict of interest we don't care right. But they grant money from Gilead into seventeen to study AIDS and HIV treatments back in two fourteen Dr Lender Liederman by the way, I Asia ibn Aids is very relevant to where we are right now with this whole thing, not going to get into it. Now I've mentioned before, but that's interesting back into those fourteen Liederman and his fellow Case Western researchers received twelve point seven million for the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and I ate at best headed by Dr Anthony Fauci for AIDS and HIV trials right which by sure Dr Meka this would have lost say about that. But the idea is, here's a guy who has an obvious conflict of interest who is openly pushing for the thing that benefits the people who are funding him this she's just never ends. But. If you speak out against this year conspiracy theorists and you'll be censored and deleted. But the real question to ask yourself rate is once we have this approved covid nineteen vaccine what then? Right what happens then? I mean, really ask yourself this and it kind of goes back to the same question I keep asking. If you knew that this was never going to end. If you knew right now, this was always just the way it was going to be forever maybe even just to a lesser degree, but it will continue to be here the masks, the lockdowns intermittently depending on how severe the rating is based on their know corner, the machines that are building right now by the way, they can sense virus in the air. So we're told I reported on it in the past is from Cambridge Darpa somebody else but they're working on it. Right if you knew this was never going to end would you still be okay with these actions? Would you still be okay with them forcing this and forcing things whatever or locking people down the str- the economy removing your business and all the things they did. If you knew it was going to be forever. Would you be okay with an I argue that the vast majority would say no. The majority because you are telling yourself that this is temporary. You know like the Patriot Act just temporary the war on terror just temporary. Right that's what they want you to think. Well the question should be in regard to the vaccine the same thing. If, we get to the point where we have a vaccine. Suddenly we're at, I, think a lot of people are under this false belief that that suddenly going to bring life back to everything. Well, first of all the problem of effectively giving it to everybody and the reality that I think the vast majority, this country does not want it and will fuse to take it, and then there's discussion of well, we don't have heard of unity so we're not actually safe yet, and then at what point does it end? When is it officially? Okay. We got the thing that we've been saying we'll bring life back and now we're good. When does that happen and how long will it take for that to happen how long until they can prove that it works and that we're good and and on and on and on. Realize that that's going to take a lot longer than you even think even if that's really what's going to happen that'll be years we're talking about. So. I want. You ask again if this is never going to end are you okay with where it's going? I sure as hell. Hope not. Now in the vaccine discussion, the same light there's a huge. Misconception about what this is the idea of the microchips and vaccines in this whole thing that's just you know trying its conspiracy theory right as four obsessed debunked as always I love when they start with that, which by the way usually means the opposite interestingly enough debunked bill. Gates conspiracy gets a boost from arcade junior and Moore Marla maples. Has Drink real quick now. This is not really a conspiracy theory. That's what's so interesting is that it only becomes a conspiracy theory when they tried to make it reductive and ridiculous. You know sort of how how, whatever we want pizza gate became that they're selling children in the basement of pizza parlor as opposed to the reality, which was things like Hillary Clinton, smuggling children with Laura, Silsbee from Haiti and getting caught, and then letting your off and then nothing ever happening about it like that's the kind of stuff. That's real. There's something to their other discussion, but to make it so simplistic and actually the Clinton was doing at the basement like that's that was a mainstream manipulation. Yes. Sure. Plenty people actually believe that. Because they're just wanted to but that was the way that they've made it. They despaired they made it ridiculous. They reduced it down to something that was one small part of a larger thing, and then even bastardized that and that's what they're doing here. The idea of putting a microchip in the in the next vaccine at they're going to put out next which by the way is not even that crazy in and of itself. So, this is put that aside right now, the idea that that's even possible or could be happening is not something you should laugh at as we're talking about a country that admitted contesting on you in that exact same way to order to thirty nine times without your knowledge but putting that aside for a moment. Because I'm GonNa let's just say for the moment that's not what's happening. Let me show you why even that statement is still not a conspiracy theory. Now first of all as Jonathan points out here. The quantum dot tattoo. which by the way we've shown you numerous times is funded by Bill Gates, research that Bill Melinda, Gates Foundation it as the as we're seeing here. I've shown numerous times. Is a way to verify that you've had a vaccine. This is not a microchip. It's not it's just it's. Interesting weirdly enough they use what's called Louis. Weird, which is an enzyme that creates the basically glow in the dark tattoo that goes under your arm. Now that is. that it self was called a conspiracy theory until it was openly talked about think about that now. That is invasive. That's scary to have something under your arm. That proves that again is what will be used to create the scenario as we said in the beginning about. Social financial exclusion. Right that is what that's about. Because, what it's saying? Is that if you don't have that Tattoo when you scan it outside of the store or the bus or going on a plane that you won't be allowed on. Sure you're not forced to do it, but you can't live your life without it. So it's a joke, it's a misrepresentation. But that is. In itself a technology advancement it's kind of alarming that was once called crazy but so this is very real. Understand the idea of immunity passports. Now to the next step of that, the idea that there could be some kind of actual technology used to grade in a certain way. is also very real. Now. One of the points of this I just because I think it's funny as Mr Right says you can apologize to all the conspiracy theorist who told you Bill Gates was putting microchips digital tattoos on vaccines to track us, and they linked to this article which by the way again, I plead with people out there. Put a link on it because people don't were find this and they're going to be like that's probably fake. But if you actually find the article which by the way one that I've already shown you, you'll see that it's not. But. I know lobe online, do it because they don't want you to go to them instead of the article, give them the or give them the clicks likes whatever else. But the point is about spreading the truth information right put the link on there for people. Anyway. Thank you for spraying it nonetheless, and the comment is correct. You can help jobs. You know why? Because already shown you this And this takes it one step further. This is not the quantum data tattoo. This is literally talking about technology under your skin. Will travel be saved by twenty twenty big corona virus travel restrictions. Are you know the? It's clear what they're saying here. Now, I went over this whole thing already in the past but there's one point that I want to show you and this is in fact what this guy's pointing out. So thank you again, Mis mis right so she's pointing out. But it's on the article and I'm going to show you know his his travelers and by the way for the podcast let's say by the way for those that are still downloading it from my website what you can do even though go daddy and apple or seemingly colluding to block my podcast the point is. This is the whole thing is about research will travel and how it will be restricted under the guise that it makes you safer because of covid nineteen and it's it's Liam I mean again, if you remember I've gone through all of this but to the one point I want to make today again, travelers who present the customs officer with an entrance visa and vaccination record. That's just a but this is happening across the board airlines everybody. This is what will be happening in the future even though they're trying to make it uncertain that is coming but says, that could be a paper card or a tiny tattoo on the arm, which is what we just showed you invisible to the naked eye but readable by infrared skinner. Now. Understand what they're saying there. Says this technology already exists and has been tried on live animals and human cadaver skin said the researcher at MIT. Their method used micro needle patches that can deliver both the vaccine and Squirt of invisible ink under the skins person's skin. Now, that's the one we were just talking about. But says, the macro needles don't leave scars and are less invasive than the needles it's like putting on band date. He said the sub terminal record is readable by simple skinner. It can even be done with a modified phone. Now, let's be clear. K.. If. You have identity. If you have information in your arm that can be read by a scanner, then you've got technology in your arm. Not Pretend like you can put ink in your arm and that's going to be readable by technology k this is something. This is something that ultimately now because be clear, we're not talking about a Qr Code on the outside of your arm, which arguably could be scanned and red. We're talking about into a sub dermal beneath your skin. Sub dural record is readable by a scanner. Case of lift the this is not what is this is not the one thing that's coming but understand this is supported by the bill and Wendy, Gates Foundation. The technology was aimed to help the developing world war paper. latronic records weren't always readable. Okay. So the point is that to claim that there's technology or you know microchips if you were to me, that's the trying to make a ridiculous idea microchips which that microchips make me think of something from one, thousand, nine, sixty, spy film, right? We're we're way past these things not not to say that they're not the same. You get my point microchips in your mind for some reason have this kind of cartoonish purchase maybe that's because of what they're doing, but the reality is quite clearly. That you do in fact, have technology. Arguably maybe even microchip type of ideas inside of your arm. For a scanner to read the information and have a record under your skin. That's supported by the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Now, if I were to come out and say this in the certain way, will that would be fake news conspiracy theory. But if I clearly read exactly what this articles writing about and then read that the bill and Melinda, Gates Foundation is for funding and supporting it. How is that any different? You see because of the way that they want you to see things talk about things but let's take this even step further. If. You thought that's all we had to make that point where you're sorely mistaken because the reality is it's way more nefarious than this and people that watch our channel. If read Whitney webs work they're well aware of that. Here. It says since at least last fall Madonna, you know the group that's one of the leading vaccine MRI. which is very alarming. that. Is One of the ones is working with agent Dr Fauci and trump's administration, and all this stuff madonna has sought to has sought to resolve the issue. They have the basically talking about issues of antibodies. Says, they basically sought to resolve the issue actually hear what I what I wrote. I forgot I wanted to look at this real quick. In regard to. which one was it. Very Go. There's something I wrote about this. It was interesting to me now it says Madonna. And that you guys know this. But I I this is something I wrote in art show. I just kind of wanted to read because this is Madeira has never in its history successfully created an NRA vaccine for use, which I've already told you should know that's true and the numerous and publicly available safety issues aside was there are many the past are any vaccines they made all all failed to produce hardly any immune response at all. But guess what Madonna decided to try and use in order to overcome that issue. Can you guess what it was? Can you guess what they decided to do? You know randomly agnel no particles technology with microchips and stuff inside the vaccine in order to produce the antibodies. I'm that's a not making this up. That is one hundred percent verifiable. It's really not hard to see all the links are sourced in the article. This'll be in there for you. Look at the point is sense at least last full Madonna has sought to resolve that very issue by adding nanoparticles chew the monory 'em are a vaccine. A modification financed by guess what the Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research. Projects, agency Darpa. So how does that translate to chips or technology in the vaccine? It does by the way. In, one hundred percent nanotechnologies technology that's that has arguably whatever term you the wanted us to make legitimate microchips or whatever, and then general right I mean I'm not an expert on our technology or what that entails. But if we're going to pick apart the word microchip and make that the issue will the reason for that. If you told somebody that they have microchips in these or nanotechnology, which would they think those were different. Misrepresentation. So as we know as a matter of fact that Madonna is in fact, putting Netto particles in the vaccine in an attempt to overcome the problem creating antibodies will what the hell are we talking about when we say that this is a conspiracy theory. Is it a conspiracy theory or is it just something? They don't want you talking about? Now says, during is a strategic ally of Darpa and has received millions from Darpa. Yet another conflict of interest crossover in the government and very high on the list vaccine producer, and of course, the Bill Melinda Gates Foundation surprise surprise several years prior to the current coronavirus crisis. So Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation are funding using nanotechnology inside of vaccines. That is not a joke that's not easily easily verifiable. You can look it up for yourself. But here, they are saying fake news. Isn't that interesting? But you know we're at a time now we're that just doesn't matter. It's pretty alarming. Because they don't care what people think the majority of it. They're selling their narrative as the absolute fact despite very clear evidence like to the the jokingly. Obvious. Like they're standing behind gigantic screen that shows Bill Gates, putting technology and vaccines, and they're saying, no, that's crazy like that's the level of absurdity were staring at right now it's a joke and they act that other means to me that everybody sees this and we're all being propagandized thinking nobody does or for some reason, we're just in a bad way people just do not see it. I feel it's the former myself, but it's hard to say. But it says Darpa plans for nanoparticles and nanotechnology, and they're potentially orwellian applications were the subject of a recent article for the last American flag on this one I. Believe is the other one I pulled up I wanna make sure if not all include this one as well. Yeah it is at this next one that we're going to talk about. But I mean this by the way we talk about the quantum tattoo right there. But that's definitive. So, next time they say you're lucky you're their fake news shown the article showing the reality. On top of that. Here's even further. Again to hear his the other headline from Whitney Corona virus gives dangerous boost the DARPA DARKEST agenda. Now, this is the other one we talked about I'm going to go and reach this whole section right here. This is about. Nanno platforms now, just now technology but like this, this is full on technology. The kind of things that yes, would include chips and the idea that we're talking about injectable gels and medical pre crime. If, they're actually still calling you know technology and vaccines a a conspiracy theory and Dr on the point of talking about like pre crime like like predicting if you're going to get sick I mean we're on different wavelengths here like it's so incredibly clear we're talking about putting technology in our body that is the technocratic idea that's what's happening now it says in two thousand, six Darpa announced it's predicting Health and Disease Program PhD's now lovely which sought. To determine quote whether an individual will develop infectious disease prior to the onset of symptoms. So predicting whether you'll get sick before you get sick yes that can't be abused at all. Especially this new you know health covert focused revolution were dealing with the the great reset with covid Nineteen as the PhD program plan to accomplish this by quote, identifying changes in the baseline state of human health through frequent surveillance with a specific focus on viral upper respiratory pathogens. Almost like they knew what was coming right now it says three years later in two thousand, ten Darpa funded researchers at Duke University created the foundation for this tool, which would be would you by the way we're talking two thousand, six guys. Two thousand six, two, thousand, ten. At that time building nanotechnology inside you in regard to you know vaccines and predicting sickness. And and yet they're acting like crazy now. Says the tool will use the genetic analysis of blood samples to determine if someone has an infected who is infected with the virus before they show symptoms and says, reports of the time claim, these preemptive diagnoses would be transmitted to a quote national web-based influence, a map available via smartphone that sounds fantastic tracking control. Now, it's just following the creation of Darpa BTO in two thousand fourteen this particular program gave rise to the in Vivo Neno platforms in your body. While you're alive, that's the point. The Diagnostics branch of that program abbreviated Ibn DX quote investigate technologies that incorporate implantable Nanno platforms. imposed. Composed of bio compatible non-toxic materials in Vivo syncing of small and large amount. A month equals of biological interest. Now What's interesting here I think this. Is what they're using to play this game. Right. So were the idea when they're going. That's so crazy microchips in this vaccine. That's so dumb because well, if it's bio compatible non-toxic materials, right we're talking about next level things that aren't necessarily you know. Nettle. Right like they're not but they're still technology. So it's still the same concept whether we're talking about some kind of microchip or some kind of technological advancement that accomplishes the same thing. But if they were told they, they always show you they play the game with the words. But clearly, this is exactly what people are worried about. Now, says the also multiplexed detection of of an analyze at clinically relevant concentrations and external entire external. That's important external interrogation of the Nanno platforms without using implant electron communication meaning that they can interact with what's inside your body. Without having something in there as well. So for wherever they want to be. And you know what? The whole new five G. Internet of things connection, they can probably do that from anywhere. Now, Darpa I vian program has since helped to finance and produce. Soft flexible Hydrogel 's she hold on his his past reports on the program describe it as developing quote classes of nanoparticles that sense and treat illness disease and infection on the inside the tech involves implantable nanoparticles. So right there that's exactly what we're talking about, which sent specific molecules and biological interest. Now it says. Quote soft flexible. Hydro. Gels that are injected just beneath the skin to perform health monitoring right with no chips to technology right? Because it's just kind of psychic machine and that sink to a smartphone APP that gives us immediate health insights that gives the use of crap. I hate when I see a Typo I, can't believe I didn't see that. GotTa, remember that. Now. It says product currently marketed incur created by Darpa funded and nationalist of health has always a company. Funded by them a company profuse up. As interesting to see that these the same entities working on trump's administration even though they pretend like they're fighting somehow are those are the people that are involved with all these actions all come even though they're not government right? These are these are corporations talk about fascism. We're talking about the blending of corporate and government entities. They're the same thing that's where we're living right now. It's this refusal which has revealed millions upon millions from Darpa Gosh I'm all over the place. They received millions upon millions from Darpa in recent years asserts that the information generated by their injectable biosensor would be securely shared and accessible to individuals, physicians, and Public Health Practitioners. Again. If that same weird point where they act like we're concerned about our neighbors finding stuff as opposed to the government, which is what we're really talking about. We're talking about security and privacy. We'll talk about our neighbor we're talking about you government. That's the point says however, the current push for a national contact tracing system based on citizens private health data is likely to expand that data share inconveniently fitting within Darpa years old goal of creating a national web based database of preemptive diagnoses. Weird. Just. A FA- self-fulfilling prophecy. One of their one of their long son does the just so happens to be pushed forward by covid nineteen. What do you know now? Profuse? Says he's also backed they sure. I don't WanNa keep that one spot right there. Hold on one second. Just for me later. So I don't miss that. Okay. Now says profusely is also backed by Google, which is intimately involved in these news mass surveillance contact tracing initiatives and counts former Senate majority leader William First. Frist, that's weird among its board members. They are also partnered with the National Institute of Health yet again, the company. The company also has considerable overlap. With the diagnostic company said feed, which which recently won FDA approval for its rapid growth of ours test and was previously awarded lucrative government contracts to detect anthrax in the US postal system. So another group tied with the false flag, which we know was a fall I mean it's just silly. It absorbs obscene again to see the kind of people are involved in this situation we pretend like they're not into all sides are involved in this. As as as of this past march profuse again, one Darpa funding to determine if they're injectable bio sensors can predict future pandemics including a now widely predicted second wave of over nineteen. By the way remember this is back win. This is she wrote this in May fourth. Somehow. They were predicting the second wave in May were August and I mean stupid that and tech these infected three weeks before they could otherwise show symptoms. I mean, it's it really is ridiculous to think that that is literally what's happening on his face. And yet. They just can't stop calling the stuff fake news. Maybe it's because they're actually fake news and they know that and it's difficult for them to deal with that. Maybe I don't know but. On top of the vaccine on top of the constitutional rights violating everything situation here. We can see the kind of bill. This is the technocratic idea in the same right. Now, the vaccine is a control measure of that, but we can see the technological revolution kind of idea happening around with that around that as well. The no platforms, the predictive medicine, the whole thing. And it all leaves the same kind of technocratic revolution idea things that they have been talking about forever. As we can see with this article unpacked or Yun. Tact. South, Korea's plan for a contact free society. which is schilling to think of a contact free society that human nature is about contact. But lack of human contact will destroy the human race. I. I'm not even saying that hypothetical or or. I'm legitimately saying that if we stop cobbing human contact and are not even talking about the absence of you know mating with other humans to produce more humans, I'm talking about the simple concept of human interaction physical is monumentally important to the human race. So. I said, wow says, ask yourself how can simultaneously claim all we need is a vaccine to quote goes to normal all we're hearing. As. If there was anything normal about it. But they're simultaneous saying that and that this is the new normal. How does that make sense contradictory? How can how can we go back to normal? But this is the new normal. The point is we're not going back is. We're not going back. They're making that very, very clear right now but the question is, are you paying attention? Do. You see what they're saying to you. or You hearing what they what you want to hear? I know this can be confusing can be alarming, but if you allow it to go forward as I think James, Corbett just said we will lose everything. I mean we will lose even the small remnants of what we have right now what we had, and we still barely hung onto right now. I just can't plead with you enough to do something. and. Interestingly enough as he responds to this tweet and I just continue to point out well, guess what Sweden's no new normal just normal. But none of the media wants to talk about it right that Sweden is just basically zero death with. Nobody wants to talk about it. No ended no mandated masks no social distancing image. They recommended stuff. That was why because they believe in the freedoms of their people And they all they do is breathless coach their paroles and say, Oh, my Gosh Sweden is going to be bad. Everyone's going to die dare they not listened to the wisdom of the World Health Organization suddenly it turns out that they were right and still they won't tell you about it does that not show you the reality. How would they not want to show you? Hey, success it's great. We now have the solution Sweden. Got It. Right? We're all going to be back on track. We don't need all these things. No, that's not what happened. They said you're crazy. You guys are wrong. You must be lying everyone's dying. You're keeping a secret and we need to force everybody into corners and put the mass I. Mean it's it's incredible. It's actually incredible to me. That we won't make that the biggest story. Now in regard to the twenty twenty, which obviously ties in with the vaccine. that as a huge part of this technocratic revolution. There's a great article that sport this this Guy Appear. Macarthur. Put together here making a few different points. and. If you don't, he puts his own opinions on different but I want you to. It's important unless to look at the content of what he's putting out there he a major ID twenty, twenty sponsor running public transportation systems accelerates eliminating cash. 'CAUSE CORONA virus. Right the idea that there's they're building this cashless society, the universal basic income, the the contact with society, all the same things that we've been screaming about the by the way we're all conspiracy theory, but now our happening simultaneously now, number one here's an example of corporations claiming that they're not accepting cash for the health and safety of our staff, many of whom likely regard as obsolete during the coronavirus crisis when in reality they were already actively phasing out cash right doesn't really to think about these companies were already kind of doing this, and now suddenly in the middle of this, they act like it's for Code Nineteen doesn't that sound familiar Sort of like the I plan and every other thing we talked about that they already had planned blocked the black rock bailout Oh for covert nineteen but nope, they planned it long before. Pretty, weird or revealing. But in this case. We're talking about a capital society where we are who who hasn't seen these weird signs about having no coins Walmart the different stores were out of coins. Please because if you're going I mean Mnuchin came out openly said, please give us your coins send them back to like wh why why else would he do that if it was not to phase them out of perky circulation All, the point is these groups were already doing that, and now they're pretending is for covid nineteen. Why? Because there was an agenda and for whatever reason they got they knew it was coming or at least suggest or Guessed, it would be coming. And this is we're talking about you. Oh, he just shows you the imaging, the longer accept cash on buses, tickets and so on. Says load your Presto card instantly. As his number to go transit and Toronto's public transportation services. Toronto Transit Commission have allowed the parasitic quote electronic payment system that eliminates the need for tickets, tokens, passes or cash, presto. Card to stealthily take over their systems over the last decade not just for the record I'm reading what he saying. Doesn't mean I disagree with it but just to be clear when he's using things like the parasitic this or stealthily take those are those are words he's putting the name May or may not be the reality if according from your perceptions, put it that way. My point is look at the content the idea. Right look at the past. Oh, car the PRESTO card. Look at the idea that this company is in fact. Removing themselves from the cash idea. Now says the take over their systems over the last decade and it's system builder. Presto fare card had poor track record. Number three, those who get the card are rewarded. For the price of giving up their anonymity. Right so when you look into it at twenty same kind of things that are you know I, it's driving a less private idea for the idea that it better society. Whereas people have argued for a long time to the lack of privacy would make the best. Society. I'm sure that works for everybody except the elitist right now says with cheaper fares and better transfers two hours of access to the system for three dollars versus one continuous ride within the system that ends when one exits for three, twenty five while those who don't get it get the bad second. Tier treatment. So, setting up this scenario where if you give in if you will allow the less privacy better deal, you get a cheaper ticket. Search, dreads. It's one step to think about like pokemon go scenario. That was one of the most widely anti privacy invasive apps that I believe is completely tied to the CIA. That just people just dove into it because they believe they didn't think it was that big of a deal will that there was a sense of essentially three d map everything including the inside of your home. Now. The Toronto. Transit Commission is incentivizing opting into this third party system by literally making life more expensive and inconvenient for those that don't. So here we are. We're now not only making it more cheaper for those that do there in fact, making it more expensive and more problematic for those that don't the point is getting into and making you think it's your choice. Now says that is and I mean in a way that's a form of mandate mandating something making it mandatory rather right because it's the same concept that if you if you simply get to a point where you just can't do it without doing what they want well, that's the same idea. Not, the beginning stages but word ends up as my point now says that this is being done on essential essential public infrastructure is beyond corrupt and that's a good point things that people need to get to work. And now you're abusing that situation. He says number four. As he wrote recently, there is an agenda to create global governance with global digital currency, goodbye cash, goodbye anonymity, and a digital identity for everyone. Now he says, perhaps you could be excused for calling this a conspiracy theory twenty years ago and I agree with what he's saying here. But if it sounds outlandish, then it's time for you to wake up because this is incredibly clear their openly talking about that openly discussing a digital currency really discussing the idea of all of these things. So it's not a conspiracy theory, but the funny thing is people will still call it that especially if you frame it a certain way. We says the agendas not hidden. You may agree with it. Many will not react. The way he does is he says, or you may disagree with it or you can question whether it's not truly achievable but you cannot say doesn't exist that it's not a viable option. But he says working with the Economic Forum World Economic Forum, in sponsored by Microsoft. The Global Alliance known as ID Twenty Twenty aims to facilitate that very goal and as we point out as well, take it from Microsoft, the ID Twenty Twenty Alliance Universal Digital Identification for you, which by the way is literally something. Some people are still calling if it's Baresi theory. The idea of immunity passport they're never gonNA make you wear a mask keep hearing the old they're never gonNa make you do this and it's just there we are here now it's happening. Now we've all seen this Microsoft in. Coordination with twenty twenty, the idea and the very thing, their financing they're involved in like this is the kind of thing they frame as philanthropy that aggressively benefits the people involved including Bill Gates but it says number five suspected for years that Presto was part of the plan to incrementally phase out cash one store one piece of infrastructure at a time. In it's case by nailing us at a critical chokepoint public transportation. Miss what happened in China's well and say only only yesterday decided to find out who's behind presto he said sometimes surprised how few degrees of separation there are between the dots that he trying to connect that's a good point and sometimes you know you look at someone's Lincoln page and they got something that's just incredibly revealing. Just, human beings are human beings sometimes, they feel like they're armed impotent that they're above getting in trouble. I says, he says, he occasionally stumbled upon connections by accident Presto is operated by accenture. which is one of the three major sponsors of twenty twenty. What do you know? So the group that's operating the card that's making the decision drive the castle society at least in their sphere is also one of the main sponsors of the eighty twenty twenty system that is driving the touch contact lists. Id. Passport they will use. It's ridiculous. It's so clear they're doing it because they're involved with his agenda, and even if it's just simply a financial decision, it's a conflict of interest when we're talking about the the things that this is being used to do. Or even take away the conflict ventures. It's it's corruption as this is being used to of remove your rights and it's being forced on your even disgust in such a way. Next number seven the other two major sponsors are as we've you know Microsoft and Garvey. Who are the two leading unders now of World Health Organization as the US early claims to pull out as the US aid and US in trump's administration in two different locations gave them billions, dollars general all about I, think it's over two billion dollars as they move three, hundred million from the rulers ation. So essentially, they funded the world help organization through two of its leading funders Microsoft. And guarding or rather just specifically Garvey because obvious what trump and his administration and US aid have openly funded the very thing that his his followers seem to think he's fighting it's interesting right on top of the digital identities for everyone. Bill Gates is also working on digital certificates for establishing WHO's been vaccinated. You know that now accenture is also working with the World Health Organization World Economic Forum. For their known traveler digital identity system. But let's continue pretending like this stuff is all fake news. It's right in your face guys. Did you go ID and cash or at odds with one another as cash allows you to go off grid and anonymous transactions are not good for helping build your data profile and spying on you. Too powerful Inter related agendas that of surveillance capitalism and security state surveillance are increasingly merging to form the Corpus Technique technocracy xactly that views any sort of privacy and sovereignty from its control grid. However, brief as a hindrance to its aim of total balance, it's going to put it. This is number nine, Ryan link conclusion go transit working with a company that has its business model, the elimination and replacement of cash. Now, advances this agenda even further doing what they already wanted to do anyway while getting to claim that it's because of covid nineteen. Exactly. Well it's great article here of. These I've never even read something grab before i. just think it's well put together despite you know little things here and there but the point is this is very clear. The businesses working together from lower level, transitional transit and everything else right at the top the people that are driving this claiming it's for your interest who are involved. Microsoft involved that he twenty twenty involved with the system using vaccines are involved with the companies that are forcing who are adopting that as their policy so that that gets pushed in. If you can't see dissolving coordinated around you again, you're just not paying attention. Here's an here's the other point. As we were talking about the cloud the accenture thing is, is another data mining kind of a digital cloud idea Modernizing AP with Microsoft as you're and accenture. So Microsoft Bill, Gates tied Microsoft is including is in type with both of these things. So there's yet another Bill Gates connection to this whole thing. Because again, we're talking about accenture right here. That is the group. Where was it right here. That's weird. There Is One of right talking about the one of the major sponsors of ID two thousand twenty. which by the way that ended up itself through God, he's been funded by the Bill Moon, the gates foundation as well as billable negates, but that in itself is a separate connection. Presto the group that's pushing the idea of the contact was idea that he's also I mean you can see the trail everywhere. The point is they're both connected to Microsoft which are both connected Bill Gates. Both of these are massive cloud, nine data mining operations, and here we just talked about the idea of the Microsoft police state, mass surveillance, facial recognition, and the cloud. Multiple examples here, and the point was while Microsoft's PR efforts obscure that they're even connected to this why? Because they don't want you knowing about it doesn't that tell you something we just showed you this weirdly enough the last thing I did before our channel censored maybe there's a reason for that but that's real. That's a real car it is. It's A. The term they use the demo. But it's real. That's a real car built for the idea of what they want cops to begin to use. Real time connected Internet data, clouds gaining. You know Internet of things. COP cars. That's the scary reality. All of tie back to the same people that they're being told are just helping. And, of course, he can't talk about that kind of idea without the very scary reality of five gene with being built around us and say great article called Five G. Just got weird. I would say you know much more weird than before but it was already pretty alarming and weird but it's an interesting point that they make here. And what are they saying? There's a lot of basically that. These are things that we already know by the way it's incredible that they're. They're forcing this on everybody and we as the very people who are. The pretense is that we are the ones influencing the direction of our government that they're the ones acting on our decisions. nope. Not Happening because most Americans have no idea what five years and that's sure as hell is happening anyway. So we didn't ask for that weren't voting for that. In fact, I'm going to be doing studies they don't even care. But. These things should be interesting. This thing should be known in the problem with pride alarming. Some people it says, you know they talked about release. Fifteen. The these different levels of the release, which by the way, make very clear that we're in the process of this despite the fact that we have not done enough safety studies and that most people don't agree with it and that it's an injury in general something that we should be scared about because of health reasons and on and on and on. But we're on we're on released sixteen right now by the way and released sixteen is where things are getting weird. They say for five jeep. While earlier releases focused on the core of five G. as a generation of cellular service released sixteen lays the groundwork for new services that have never been addressed by cellular before let sounds fun at least not in such a rigorous comprehensive way. So even in ways that are you know this is the point is not just about phones this is going to be your. This is going to be yourself. They're creating five digital sell around your life. That's that's how I see this now release fifteen really focused on the situation we're familiar with release sixteen really broke the barrier for connected robots, cars, factories, and dozens of other applications and scenarios. The Internet of things the all encompassing surveillance network. That, the guy was just mentioning. The idea that they just can't allow you have privacy or or any kind of moment to yourself outside of that. That's what this is talking about. Everything interconnected anywhere you go all the time now it's says, but when three g P., P. members. Is it a group that's involved with this started gathering to hammer out what five could be there was interest in developing a wireless system that could do more than connect phones quote. The Five G. vision was always has always been this unifying platform. Whether you want it or not. They forgot to add that part us to connect anything wireless, which by the way is increasingly becoming everything, which is the point. Now, it says in regard to vehicles in other words using five G. for cars to communicate with each other and everything else around them. Again with whether you want it or not right that that is the point that they're not including in there as if it's a foregone conclusion that everybody wants these things. Side linking release sixteen also introduces a new technique called side linking side links will allow five G. connected vehicles to communicate directly with one another rather than going through cell tower intermediaries. This is the idea about the short wave concept of what five years and the fact that this. Did these things will be able to directly communicate is intensely that's the idea of the of and see us attain easily but within reason to that idea. And this is the kind of constant flow of information that will be abused. Just like every other thing that has been abused in this way by our government now says it can theoretically apply to any two of the devices and that's the point as they make it about cars and safety. Well it also can theoretically apply to any to devices that might need to communicate directly rather than go through bay station I. You know such as maybe siphoning off all your information from your phone because they pass by it or within reason, or basketball or US one of the boxes out there I mean the idea that it can directly exchange information. Is something interesting to think about? Large scale Internet of things installations. That's what it's about. Location services so while they're able to pull this information. Directly it says in past generations of cellular three cell, towers required to triangulate where a phone was by measuring the round trip distance of a single from each tower signal. Of course, they pretend that they never did it without permission and a warrant, right? Obviously not. Of course, apply that same idea with more power, but five G. networks will be able to use the round trip time from a single tower to locate a device. So basically tracking you buy your phone far faster and far easier. How does that benefit you don't ask because it doesn't there. Then there's private networks. Now this is interesting. For Right now I think I highlighted this because I feel like there's something here that I'm not seeing. You'll say I'm GonNa read this and you guys tell me what you think common the whatever this something about this stood out i. didn't I can't revive finger on why I think it's important. It says then there's private networks. When we think about cellular networks, we tend to think of wide networks that cover lots of ground so that you can always be sure you have a signal. But Five G. incorporates millimeter waves, which are higher frequency radio waves that don't travel nearly as far as traditional cell signals, which is the reason why you're going to have a five box every corner on every street in front of your house everywhere across the country because they don't go very far but they're. But that the idea so you're gonNA have one on every lamppost everywhere. which they just pretending is not going to increase the health risks which we know are there they're pretending they don't see or maybe that's what they warrant who ultimately knows but it's as millimeter waves moons it will be possible to build a network just for an office. Factory or a stadium at those scales five G. could function essentially like Wi fi networks. Now maybe this is just something I don't understand it well, enough. Maybe I'll leave it to my betters out there scientifically to to tell me why that's relevant. But something about that seemed interesting to me. Now released seventeen will extend reality. This is where it gets pretty weird released seventeen. So the next one will include more mechanisms by which devices not just cars can side link. And it will include entirely new things as well. Again, it's incredible that we're doing this without mean Americans. It's not even being questioned whether it's something that we want. Released seventeen includes a work item on extended reality. The catch all term for alternate reality and Virtual Reality Technologies and says, they will attempt to address current gaps in the Internet of things coverage, and that's the point the gaps, the parts where they can't see what's going on. That is what it's about. It says explore it's the studied item to explore the possibility of using frequencies in the fifty two to seventy one gigahertz range. That's crazy fi heart for far higher than anything used in cellular today. Pretty. Interesting. Now remember we're talking about fifty to sixty was right around where the oxygen gets pulled out of the air basically to make it simple. Now, finalising released seventeen will almost certainly be pushed back by the ongoing code pandemic. Or maybe. Not. Right I mean, maybe that's the exact opposite. The something to be said and says, win released seventeen is published. It's certain to make five G., even weirder still. I think we all know that. Pretty Weird I agree. Oh No forget that you know this is in. August two thousand nineteen. So weirdly right before the technocratic revolution was really kicked off and interestingly kind of right around the time when we had this weird, you know outbreak of vaping illness around the country and right around the time when for Dietrich also had a weird leak that we don't WanNa talk about where they said was national security. We can't talk about it for Dietrich. The had one week every three days for seven years straight. Yeah and we'll talk about that. You know people in Corona virus and baths, and all things they work on their right right around that time frame. And they say at the timeframe, guess what cyborgs your place humans and remake the world. Almost like they wanted the prep us for what was coming either way. The point is to realize this is always been something that's been on the table the discussion not that they're saying this is just somebody writer discussing what they think will happen but understand this is normalizing the reality of where it's going. It's happening right now like literally right now I mean you could actually a legitimate argument for why having something like a cell phone that maybe interact with other parts of the things you have in your hat or your body or people right now that have things are actually injected that you could argue right now that humans are already in the costal becoming cyborgs. You make people may laugh at but simply understanding what the word Cyborg means it realize just having the kind of phone that. So immersed with your body and daily interaction, it's kind of the same concept. So it's very close to where we're already there. But That's the where they're leading us is is a guarantee that that's where we're GONNA end up. Now. Before we end the Cova discussion, I want to talk about the finance part just a little bit for move onto the QN on Mili Weaver. Shadow Gate all that though that fun discussion. I WanNa talk about the spending really quickly won't take too on this, but I found this today as. Secret but it's it's suspending page regard to covid nineteen. The federal response to Covid. Nineteen. Now. This to me. In a way is deceptive of interest in of itself because right now they're saying, well, we've only spent two point, six trillion, which is just a joke I. mean you they four trillion dollar bill that went to big business. Just failed out our country Gabay bailed out are corrupt corporations again using. American. Tax dollars pretending it was necessary because of covid nineteen. The very thing that we saw coming years before this the very thing that black rock made a plan for way this ever started both pretend like that was not a bailout like two thousand eight you got stole got robbed again guys if you're just paying attention. So the point is four trillion dollars for that a two trillion dollars in regards to the I mean it's far more than two point six trillion. But just looking at that. Realize how how much money that they're taking from you. That's not benefiting you. Two point six, trillion dollars and. Family is still not gotten their measly twelve hundred dollars stimulus check. So where's it going? Four trillion went to big business whereas the two point six going both not counseling you. It would seem most of the stuff is going towards government. So these make these federal response. These packages meant to help covid nineteen and whatever, and all it does is continue to bloat the government weird because that's what government does right? Number of eighty to thirty nine different agencies two point six, trillion dollars, trillion dollars. Understand the even the stated military budget. That's you're getting. That's almost three times you're getting close to the thick how recognized how much money that is. Unprecedented. And take a look at where it's going. Department of Treasury Small Business Administration, Department of Labor, how of Health and Human Services the obviously some of these things you might agree with you dig into it but none bottomline. It's going to the government. So they just basically said, hey, we're in trouble. Let's take more money from the people who are actually struggling the people. The Americans who are actually going to bad way does anybody believe that any of these congressmen or any of these people work at these places or the actual administrative levels are in any problem right now they're doing just fine. You or the one struggling. One percent of this money would dramatically change Americans lives. But. Now, it's all going to federal government. Then, I mean I shouldn't say that is probably going to to but not going to you by in large. Now take a look at the states. I, found this to be quite relevant. The idea that. I thought you could go. Hey, go the idea. That, of course, all the locations that had the worst issues. So, we're told who claim who projected the most problems are in fact, getting the most money that is interesting to think about now Utah is a caveat here. As they point out in this thing here. That in fact, we're wasn't anyway. Utah is a osas rare. Amounts reported for Utah. Reflect an award by health and Human Services for the provide relief fund to a single entity in Utah, which is then making payments to recipients everywhere in the country. Which? The point being that's why it's dark and has so much remind everybody else. So it's not actually representative of what's happening. But. You'll notice that California Texas, New York Florida like these places that had the worst get in the most money. So the only reason I'm saying that is you have to consider. that it play a factor. In whether or not they fudge something here or there. Or decide to take a certain action, one way or the other knowing that it would dramatically increase their budget the next year, which is pretty much all these people care about as far as I'm concerned. So. As you notice that places like New, York California Texas account for like fifty percent of the deaths in this country will maybe you should ask why? And whether or not that's interesting and reflects on whether it's really as bad as we're being told us and maybe maybe a lot of these deaths were just people who didn't actually have covid nineteen, and in fact, we're dying from other things or maybe intimated indict from that when they didn't have to. All these things are backed up by the actual data that we've seen and disgust. None of this is hypothetical. None of it is based on anything other than actual information that we have gotten from official sources. So as we see the funding going to the same places I, think we need to ask why? and Ask why places like Wyoming Idaho who are right next to places like Washington who had the one of the big spikes in the beginning just simply don't have the same problem. Despite the fact that we didn't stop inter intercontinental flights way way after if at all some places. Pretty. Interesting. But I hope you'll go through this and read it for yourself. Go through the INS and outs and disgust yourself at how much how much is being spent. From your pocket that doesn't benefit you while you're the struck were one struggling the most and don't forget on top of that that people in the one percent or doing just fine. In fact, wildly profiting in many cases that the world's billionaires are truly billionaires have increased their wealth exponentially since this started. As the as the New York was New York. Post. Near Yeah points out super-rich Party or excuse me super-rich Party it up during cove nineteen, they call it the poor person's virus. Was that interesting. Doesn't I I just I don't want to read too much into that. But it's interesting to think about the idea that there's a very clear difference on. Let's put it. This way that wealth seems to play a factor on whether or not you get sick. Isn't that interesting? Correlations not 'cause Asian, but it's something to consider. Now I WANNA finish off today with while technically I, WanNa to talk about this and it's not going to be very long the the Qn on milling we were discussing just want to point out a few things and finished with some foreign policy that frankly I find to be far more important. But I still wanted to touch on this because I don't I don't I'm not in any way suggesting what happened or the documentary information is not relevant and not necessarily important, but there's stuff. Important point that I want to make but I don't want to jump the gun I wanted to talk about this when I this is something. That seems to be interestingly same timeframe and tied connected in simply if for no other reason, the fact that they're connected to Cunard. Now this is something that came out of the daily beast. which by the way, I don't have no reason to believe the daily beast is accurate or this article was not some aggressive misrepresentation in order to make conspiracy theorists look crazy. Even calling me kind of thing people like US conspiracy theorist. But or whether for the matter, all of this was faked for. All I know it doesn't matter. The point is just show you. This I is that this is the article says promotes pedal conspiracy theories. Now they're stealing kids which again I argue is in and of itself a ridiculous gross misrepresentation as one guy does something who believes in qn on and they make it out to say, Cunanan steals kids it's just dumb but that's the point and I argue this is the agenda that the the whole point of on in my opinion then not meaning that everybody involved knows this. So a lot of people believe it. The whole point is in order to use it to disparage people talking about the truth. People actually talking about the real problem, right? I mean the real issues in our government in in Hollywood and whatever else that I've talked about Ad Nauseam on this show. And making that out to be crazy because these people it's the it's the Alex Jones scenario right interestingly relevant to the next topic but the idea that Alex Jones was used in still is to make it seem crazy that out will he's talking about it and talked about in a screaming rational way not really getting into the real facts to say that's what they all look like and no, it's not all look like in fact, most of us many of us are trying to source our material and objective and be open minded to all perspectives even groups like them. But this point was interesting because assaults essentially this guy. AS THE STORY GOES Took it abducted? I guess the argument goes in but rather either way it's his kids. So we have his kids in His van and was driving them somewhere. Arguably, running from the cops or driving away, and then they started chasing how it worked out. He was running from the cops with his kids in the car and the script is screaming it was one younger child and older one and they were screaming and saying. The whole time he was accusing his sister's daughter and his wife who apparently dove out of the car when they first started that's the story they a moving car doled out of the car, left her children in there. And he's saying in the video, which by the way is right here all the in the show notes you can watch it on you. You won't be able to find anywhere else. He saying in the video. That his wife and his daughter are working with the Kabul. which by the way who knows I'm not gonNA argue that anything's outside of Donald Possibility today but my argument is this is probably just a guy. If Israel was just worked up by these manipulations and I do believe that what ultimately is the manipulation coming from on that doesn't mean that there's not real couples and real. Had A pedophile rings that are involved the government and they're all. Very real things people get arrested for the stuff I mean anyone that pretends like that stuff is fake news is just rational. Remains very clear that stuff happens we. EPSTEINS network just got specifically epsteins. One part of that network just got exposed clearly pedophilia sex trafficking and murder and blackmail but we still kind of pretend like it's fake news. Nonetheless, the point is that this guy? Driving claiming his family is part of it and claiming claiming some current pretty ridiculous things in the video seems to suggest to me that this guy was just kind of worked up by this and became a rational and I think that's combat. Exacerbated by the media and by the way they're doing because they are lying to us on its face which make people like this. Believe that what they're talking about prop maybe real. But see that's a fallacy just because they're lying doesn't mean what you believe is real. Nonetheless, the point is I want to point out that it happened. And of course, the vast of people in the queue community are saying though this is fake or at that guy doesn't represented or you know it's probably a Cy Oppor you know whatever I've looked into it. I probably wasn't even going mention this if it wasn't for this next part. Now, first of all, Spiro Did a video on this. And did a good job but he covered the right in the beginning said breaking news this happened. And he should. We basically went over at the beginning and then show the clip of the actual arrest of Milly Weaver. Now, if you don't of the story quickly summit up Millie, weaver was a reporter for Info Wars. was about apparently about to release documentary, which by the way is right here. And the date argue that argument goes the day before the documentary supposed to be released. In, the St Avenue. So the story goes she was arrested according to the video at her home. Now are, of course, the big fervor was because of the documentary will it turns out when you look into the investigation or so the story goes and Spiro was the one reporting on this that there's more evolved here that this goes back months before this documentary was even there on on. Doesn't mean that it was because the documentary. Now just trying to lay this out for you know she got arrested and you can see the video not GonNa play it for you because you've probably seen a thousand times already, but you could see arrested. See a shot of the COP or weirdly not his badge or is really showing any information, which is what the first thing I would have done if I was filming it. But. Nonetheless. This ultimately happened. The video was out everything else now then one of the soak the whistle blowers involved with this documentary. Posted the video of the documentary, which is right here on you can see her channel Tori says. From about nineteen thousand subscribers to now it's at but see. Isn't that ridiculous they finally take it down. Here's what's funny I. Think I had it up again right here. No that's his video Dang I had a second time. The point was I. They had it had one point five million views. And then they took it down. I've very suspicious about that but you know whatever because it was so publicized. But it's funny that it's now down. Right. So the way this all goes. Bring up this real quick. Is The ultimately the factual documentary. In my opinion has a lot of information that's relevant. A lot of really powerful things that I think are well worth your time to listen to. This Oh, my point of saying this is not to say that you shouldn't look at that or that's fake. Regardless of whether this was hyped up or fake arrest itself was used or not the documentary important stuff in it I think is interesting but there's a lot of half truths in there. In my opinion, you cannot have a full picture for a partisan standpoint and that a documentary is nothing if it's not aggressively partisan and pro donald trump and it's very clear Q. on pro because this actual whistleblower. Actually here. I'll go back to you. Guys can see what I'm pointing to the person the whistle blower herself as you look through her videos. Shoot now. Here, hold on. Here she is that video is gone now. The pulled it against the from the time. Now they pulled it but Tori says if you look at other videos right here in the first one should very procurement on. I think that's relevant. So coming back to the documentary or they'll look at it now but the documentary itself. is talking with to whistleblowers who are essentially claiming there's a massive shadow government. Network that is using, and of course, it's all it's the only tied to. Obama and that circle and you know the whole thing and the idea that they're using stuff and I think this is argue with part that we should at least understand. Oh, by the way, I didn't even notice in your as a cute right there on her. On. Her main Patriot, there's accusatory says. So one of the whistle blowers guy whistleblowing claiming that they have insight on what's going on with this deep state shadow government and they're using our surveillance and this kind of ubiquitous surveillance network to gather information on Americans on politicians on everyone alike, and they're using it against us and many of these people are not even part of the government anymore that's the that's the shadow government. Now, this stuff is incre- it's relevant interesting but I would argue that a lot of this stuff is stuff that we should already generally no, and it's not like this documentary is saying here's some new piece they're saying here are two people that are saying these things. Again, my argument is the spirits. This that we have to be even Keel about this. We have to be even from both sides just saying that it's not a slam dunk as summer saying it is is not suddenly saying that you're schilling for some of the which is what ultimately say. But to me it boils down to, two people. Who are making claims. And there are some things they put on the screen and show you some documents. But at the end of the day, they're not showing you some bombshell document that proves what they're saying they're the bombshell is what they're saying. So to me, that's that's not as huge people making out to be, but there's a lot of really interesting points and we should understand that there is obviously some kind of unelected power structure here talking about Reagan's constantly of government and the idea that they created this kind of shadow government even back then there was operating independently of them and they carried onto the day. So this is a very real thing I definitely think that. But with a problem is when you dive into it, you realize that what they're boiling it down to his Donald Trump is not the bad guy. Donald Trump is the one they're going after it was all about that and it boils down to you got the the Democrats the bad guys across the board of course, and then you've got the bad Republicans and then. Trump side the white hats idea and they're the ones fighting for freedom and it may be the truth. But my problem is that there is an mountains of evidence that challenged that narrative I mean an untold. An unending amount of evidence in regard to Epstein and even regard to cope with nineteen discussion. So as we're talking about this and the shadow government and the actions taken in the foreign policy that trump is aggressively involved in and Iran and all this different stuff it's very clear that he is involved with knowingly or otherwise the very same agendas that have always been going on. And I mean I'm not going to go over all the evidence I'm trying to take too long on this, but the bottom line is just be skeptical here. It to me my gut. which is not something of the take it or leave it. It does not fact but my gut tells me that this something's off about this. I mean people in the community are similarly saying this doesn't seem right something about this seems off and I'm talking like leaders in the queue community like big social media coup people are saying I don't know about this. I mean only seen a couple of them but that matters. Also. Think about the shadow gate of all things really Russia gate though I mean everything has been most of these things have been. Bottom line is to make it a shadow gate is just another perpetuation of the same falling into the manipulated up of this the same manipulations of all this stuff. The Russia. Gate scenarios it just seems like it's all part of it but. Coming from a great video from high impact flicks he does make a couple of interesting points here and he goes over some of the stuff. He also was very skeptical about this. The fact that one milly weaver and Info wars was trending number one on twitter for eighteen hours. I mean, I'm never wanted to say we'll because of that that because that person isn't being censored means, they're not real or you know the kind of false equivalency people do but I gotTa tell you when you have Hashtag Bill Gates trending. And then instantly disappears and it never comes back. I mean. It's clear that they didn't want that they're they took action to remove it. But yet, this is allowed to transfer eighteen hours. He talks about on the show. And then, of course documentary which was I mean this was why was he? Everyone's talking about this? She was arrested was a big deal. It's all over the place and the documentaries everyone sees it. They let million. Videos where I put a certain. I, say a certain thing actor put a certain link and it gets it gets censored before I even go live what you're telling me that they allow million views on something that's supposed to be counter to all of it. Shirt maybe I get I'm not saying I know but that seems very. Flimsy to me. Now he goes on to point out. The as relevant started a gofundme for her. Saint you really in in in. Really neither here. Nor there I mean I argued the action there is meant to. Gather more of the steam around this and of course, it doesn't even matter I'm guessing and most of the stuff, but the point is in regard to his one comment I meant but. The point is raising thirty three thousand dollars thirty thousand dollars. It, just it it. It seems interesting when you know the background of a lot of this stuff and you know that some of the most of this stuff is completely up in the air at the moment so I I don't know there's a lot of people out there deserving of a lot more real point he gets to is the fact that Info wars, which is definitely tied to this. She works for them. Has An overwhelming Ryan more and more than I've seen in a long time. Want, he's pointing to right here. They're openly saying that Israel. Is Endorsing Info Wars. They're also saying that Israel dominated don't trump for a Nobel peace prize which I think we might have discussed with the point is that this is this is very alarming as along with the kind of stuff we're talking about and ultimately boils down to what there's fear rising talking about high impact flakes and a few others. This boils down to sort of an Israeli Military Industrial Complex sigh up and that makes a lot of sense to me. Ultimately. I haven't made my mind up I've watched the documentary I find it to be interesting but not as bombshell as many people try to make it out to be not because of the look if all that information was backed up by much more hard evidence I. think it was a little more. Like big was a much bigger deal. But aside from that, if that was if that's not that not being there to me, this is kind of seems like not as big as everyone's making it out to be. Which would explain The fervor when it's I mean clearly being driven in the same direction as all of this other military industrial complex control network kind of ideas. And all that does is remove. The guilt or the association or the complicity of Donald Trump. Of. His administration. In, the middle of his administration is seemingly leading the charge of what's happening right now despite the games they play of left and right and governors, president and Blah Blah. Blah. So it seems like this could be leading to the one thing that would tip the scales. In the direction of allowing this to continue. But he makes this is a great video that he goes over and talks to the Israeli part is a very important part of this. But he also talks about rightly so. Trump and his ties with the same entities. The ties with people like basically the idea of being bailed out. Himself I mean, he went bankrupt numerous times it was bought out by by by trials. Earlier is that's weird. Suddenly all of a sudden rockefellers but interestingly enough he makes the same point in this article or in this video that ultimately we have Rockefeller Rothschild's both on the same side here driving the same agenda and the point is you can see a very clear concept. Donald. Trump was essentially bought out by these entities and they openly stated and this is on record that Donald Trump as an entity and what he represents is far more valuable to us. Then the money that we spend to bail him out and that means something to where we are now. The Israeli tied all this stuff in the point to. That they're actually arguing in on infowars now that the rothschilds are battling against the rockefellers and and they're like, it's a good versus evil kind thing I mean and this is just incredible. I mean we're we could literally be watching too bad sides trying to convince us that they're the good side or it could be watching a manipulation of all of it while none of them or while all of them are on the same side, either way the art, the narrative of how Donald Trump only being white hat in Bennett amongst all this. It just simply is not backed up by the facts. or rather the evidence I should say. But. Things like this documentary in the whole shadow gate scenario just omit that. Coming around is the main reason why I feel there's no way you can feel that this is full a full story because you can't get the full perspective from a partisan standpoint. Now says we was arrested at the first home, which is yet to be confirmed by authorities, which is weird but I do believe that Spiro himself says he called. The sheriff's department and have interaction with them and they confirmed it but he wasn't allowed to play it. So it's not confirmed I mean I would are even with spirit. I would argue I haven't seen it myself. I wouldn't call it confirmed but spirit says that he has heard it himself. So I believe that has been kind of the took the factories that she is in fact in jail or arrested or control held or in some degree but anyway. Bottom line guys. My Gut tells me to do something off about this. There's something involved in all this. That's just a distraction and. Something I mean one of the points he makes very relevant is is the way the dynamic went down when she was arrested. They came in. And she she wasn't. She was seemingly first thing she said was I was just about the break big news and you know her her son is crying stuff's happening and the only thing she seemingly is kind of aware of or thinking about is the story and the cops and what's going on as opposed to would he argues what a mother would do consoling her child and but who knows you can't argue you can't decide what people would do. It doesn't that, but it's an interesting point that may seem to suggest that the the way it went down was not as natural as it might have been if it was just random. Know pretending that was something that was set up but as always think for yourself, don't just be swayed by aggressive people online look into it. And again, just because people are saying things such as the documentary that align with what may be the truth and you may already believe doesn't mean that it's actually accurate or even real. Very important confirmation bias is a big problem today I mean I even even myself right we all have a problem with this was something where we look for things we want to see and we find what you're looking for. We tend to feel that as a confirmation and it's not right I remind myself of that every day we all have to do that. Now finishing off with some foreign policy as we're. About three hours again. Oh. These long shows I just love you guys so much just can't leave you alone. Foreign policy very important as this all goes on especially seeing as how you know Israel is continuing to bomb Gaza the most civilian densely populated area in the world and no one wants to talk about it but starting with Belarus. Lukashenko rejects calls for new elections claims NATO deployed to border. Now, look, this is the this is interesting because the timing because of the way it plays in with politics as well as covert nineteen but very more. So than anything the similarities between exactly what's happening here and I mean literally every other regime change of US government ever. It's kind of ridiculous. Now he says versus the NATO said it was closely monitoring. Only myth that. Yeah. Okay. So he says, NATO, said, it was closely monitoring events in Belarus but denied a military buildup was underway. which is just ridiculous. I mean first of all, NATO. As a multinational entity that's monitoring the events Beller. Why? What right do they have? This, they're the international military. That's what that is and the and that is directed by the US government. Now, the UN you and not this NATO is a NATO was created after nine eleven. It was initiated by nine eleven was the only time in history. They use the article in the in the in the the the northland trade. Organization. The forget an article I don't WanNa. Miss this article too the only time in history it's been used and that was basically created international military. For actually wait a minute wait. Wait the point. Is that that the point this after nine eleven? This was created. And it has changed the face of foreign policy and the world for that matter because it has been used to pressure other countries into giving up their resources, and in fact, forcing them to give their government if they choose not to do the former. But it says Belarus has been rocked by demonstration since last Sunday when Lukashenko claimed victory in presidential election opponents say were rigged I mean, that could be Venezuela that could be Syria. That could be Bolivia that could be anywhere because exactly the same narrative the US government uses every single dime and it says two people died the protests. which, of course is going to be used. To blame them for how dare you violate the rights of your people as the US government is openly doing that right now in the united. States. But who cares because we're good guys right. But it says he says foreign interference is to blame for the unrest. Now first of all, I should point out. Let's just hypothetically say that as the leader he was doing all these things, it would be a smart thing to say today to make this claim because people like myself would be like well, that sounds like something the US would do just to make that clear point. Right there is. It's just likely that he's making this up because it worked in favour based on my research and the information I don't think that's what's happening as always not the mainstream media and I'll make sure and give you the full picture but he says if we know to them, we will go into a tailspin and he's right We'll cherish his estate as people and as a nation, every single time in history such as Libya when they get in to what the fake protesters are asking for they lose and they overthrow them because it's not about the demands. It's about removing the people in power. The same way we're seeing that everywhere else and I keep wanting it up. What happened in Lebanon resigned and what happened they kept protesting there's there's a reason for that guys. But as he as Gareth points out rightly. So it's interesting Belarus completely shunned the World Health Organization, one percent covert nonsense and simply gone on with it, and of course, now, NATO troops are building on their border just coincidence though, right one of the people that didn't toe the line you gotta wonder. As always, it's for you to decide. One. Thing. It's not very. You know I guess one thing that's very definitive. That's what that way Israel carries out more strikes on Gaza over balloon bombs. The same exact story last time. Selassie this as as Israel is as. acknowledging that they're using tanks and? Helicopters and jets to bomb the most civilian densely populated area in the world mostly children with openly doing this, ask yourself this as the people in Gaza even Hamas. Let's say who's also in the same area sound like they can hide out somewhere else whether being bombed they're all in Gaza we're not allowed to leave. Ask yourself why they would keep using these flimsy useless seemingly meaningless bombs of fire or a balloons. That at worst seemingly caught fire they put out quite quickly. Why would they keep doing it? They're not having an effect they're doing anything. All they're doing is causing the justification for Israel to do what he wanted to do bomb Gaza and kill people. So why would they keep doing it for six days straight? Six days straight right as Robert is telling us right now. Breaking, right. Now, Israeli airstrikes reported in northern Gaza. This is the sixth night in a row they've bombed Gaza Israel is closed. Gaza's humanitarian aid crossing. That's called collective punishment was the people of Gaza that did this was at the no, they're bombing loss. But yet they're closing the humanitarian aid crossings stopping gas imports why? Because they're trying to hurt the people because always what's been going on stopping? Oh, ask gas imports in two days Gaza will run out of trinity because of this. And they'll just keep blaming Komo. Is sending bombs and balloons and it's therefore but why are they attacking the people then? White how does electricity for the people of Gaza because they claimed they pretend they're all terrorists right? None of this makes sense and they play the narrative. However, they can't stretch this to make sense. They're bombing civilians that's happening right now. I should discussed you. And of course, as I said my God. Six nights in a row Israel has been aggressively attacking the most densely civilian populated area on earth about half of what your children none of which are allowed to leave. How can anyone look at this right now act as if this is justified in any way whatsoever. There's not there's no narrative you can say that makes legitimate. You can't say they're all terrorists. You can't say anything about it. They are in a place they're not allowed to leave from which you look very easy to look up. They're not allowed to go anywhere. Mostly. Civilians have children. And because of balloon flies over, that's on fire, they bomb multiple areas for six days straight. Yeah let's please. I would love for someone to try to pretend like that's justified. But here's how this is the one from I believe yesterday. August. This is this is this is technically this is the one yesterday from it's from the Sixteenth Roberts reporting what's happening right? This moment will hear about that one tomorrow in Israel in occupied occupied Palestine but he says, it says clashes broke out earlier on Saturday evening along Gaza's really border now, which would you know you know what? That's dumb because clashes didn't break out it's not like this is some line of soldiers bumping into we're talking about people on one side. Protesting. And then you've got an entire heavily armed, highly technologically advanced Isreaeli IDF behind bunkers and electrified fences shooting at those people. That's what they call. Clashes, and skirmishes to make it sound like the Palestinians are like regularly attacking. It's not what's happening. That is an aggressive and willful misrepresentation because there's an agenda it says the Israeli military said Duh said by the way. So we're getting right there. Their word of things that we haven't proven there's no video of. Dozens of Palestinians, burnt tyres, which by the way, this is not even the same thing they're on their side in unoccupied area where the UN. Under the rights of under the basically on, we're talking about things that have been documented. If you're an occupied territory, the UN is regularly route regularly ruled that you have the right to armed rebellion. So, that means that the UN right now still maintains the Palestinians have that right and yet when they have a balloon lobbed over there just claiming that that's justifiable to bomb the entire location. It's not by the way because they have the right because they're being illegally occupied. You see just goes around and around and the government allows it. They burnt tyres hurled explosive devices and grenades toward the security fence they said in an attempt to approach it. It. Really. Is disconcerting the fact is burning tires and and for protesting the only way that they can get attention to what's going on the fact that they are illegally occupied and are continually bombed and attacked and suppressed and get no fresh water and no electricity, and they're not allowed to leave. But yeah, let's pretend like one balloon fire or one hundred balloon fires is enough to justify the open attack on an entire civilian location. Which is actually defined as collective punishment, which is actually a worker. But I'm a crazy conspiracy theorist racist, right? It says in past weeks, Israeli forces have carried out repeated nighttime strikes on targets linked to HAMAS, which by the way even if every balloon even balloon flying right now, they have never yet prove Hamas even the one doing this there's never been an investigation they will openly tell you they're not going to even if they no, it's not even if they can tell it's as long as she hard, which is not the same thing they'll bomb us. They've said that they've said anything that happens in Gaza, they'll blame on us. There's nothing about this this legitimate legal moral, correct or anything. Nothing. It is a bastardized version of a situation that allows them to do whatever they want whenever they want and murder people at a whim and all they say is, well, we were defending ourselves or will they they did this or they did that even though the UN says it's against the law does matter the US noto's and allows it. Is reason for that. Now says, the army says that they are in response to the use of makes you firebombs attached balloons and kites which have been sent to in parts of southern Israel causing thousands of fires will I just read the article in a said hundreds? Literally read this article two days ago on Israeli on times of Israel, and it said one hundred fires and now suddenly in a day and a half, we're talking thousands I, Clearly Colby S. The point is it's just a narrative that just we're firefighters in danger and force. Now it's thousands because they're bombing six days. Straight hundreds doesn't really work. Is there were nineteen such Palestinian tax on Saturday alone according to Israel in response fighter jets aircraft, and by the way tanks that doesn't include in this article. That was that was openly stated idea. Tanks jets and aircraft and helicopters attacked Hamas. Military. Targets. So. What they're saying is that protesters were using firebombs. Balloons with fire. And they bombed Hamas military locations. Again, I make that point every time. How do you ex-. How do you make sense of that? How do you pretend bombing military installation at anything to do with a protest or a defense cry during a balloon over it doesn't and that's very clear. It's the point is these locations that they already had pinpointed and just wanted to attack anyway. So you can ask yourself did they claim they were balloons in order to achieve what they already wanted to do six days straight It said a military compound underground infrastructure belonging to Hamas. We're among the targets among them. That's great. So the other ones were just whatever else got hit, which is usually what happens early on Sunday the Israeli military said two rockets were fired into Israel from Gaza Oh but they were intercepted by your iron dome and Inter field and cause no damage. Yeah. Pretty Classic story or didn't happen at all according to the leading defence munitions experts in Israel I says quote in response our air. Force just struck Hamas targets. So something happened we didn't prove it. No damage. And we attack the targets we were already planning to hit. Including a compound used a store rocket munition. Right as Israel has closed its Kareem Shalom goods crossing right. This is important. What this is what In the cash was talking about. This is for the people. This has nothing to do with Hamas Argentine nothing, but it has this is about civilians there. This is their humanitarian aid crossing and they reduced the territory's permitted fishing zone. What does that have to do with anything? They do this every single time they restrict and collectively punish the entire population of Gaza. You realize they survive with fishing those people they will people will die if they're not allowed to fish for a period of time period. They know that. So when they had a balloon or they claim a balloon happens, they just attack everybody equally they bomb and they shut down crossings and permit fishing to know. Constant constant act of collective punishment. It says the Gaza Strip has a population of two million. More than half of whom live in poverty. Oh, and they're not allowed to leave by the way. So who's fault is that? were. You can't force somebody into an open air prison and blame them for what you don't give them. But sure I'm a racist. And as Sarah, Wilkinson points out if stopping Israeli annexation was so important an in regard to the UAE. Israeli deal if it was so important to the UAE Mohawk. The only thing that it didn't do was stop Israeli annexation as she calls the the so-called deal a red herring. As the article says, stopping annexation our main concern. Last thing they did. Don't be sweet by this nonsense right as when Saudi Arabia steps up next goes Yay deal with Israel it's a joke if they have already made a deal with Israel, they're just not telling you that. They've been there. They're working on behalf of them, and if us just about everybody that I can tell I'm talking about the government obviously. I mean look at the influence Israelis government has over the US. We know about net about Epstein's network. Ties. Back to Massad and everything else. These are these are things we know now. So. How can we can talk and we can't consider that? The reality that this government does in fact, have an obvious influence over our policy probably because they use blackmail manipulation. The same kind of things we're seeing coming out all over the place the same things that were discussing the shadow gate documentary, right? Exact exact same concepts of course. But we pretend that trump didn't have any connection to those things Raimi's constantly. Speaking of trump in foreign policy. Trump's threatening sanctions on Iran. Why? Because everyone else disagreed with him Right I mean, this is the kind of insulting thing we need to realize that they don't care what anybody thinks. And also realized that the rest of the world increasingly saying we don't agree with you anymore. At least in regard to this or at least that's what they're saying because of some other agenda bottom line is he wanted sanctions and the rest of them said, we're not going to do it and said Okay I'll do they by myself. Which means that he he didn't have to ask them at all and it was never about what anybody said it was about what they wanted to do. We'll be doing snap. Back. By the way that's referencing the JCP away which they don't have a right to do because they pulled out of it. They said it was defunct. They said, it was fake. They said it was wrong and I said we're not going to be a part of it and they stomped away and then they realized nobody followed them, and now they pretend like they can still make the deal do things they wanted to do why? Because they're the policemen of the world as they tell you, they're not the policemen of the world. It says you'll be watching it next week. He says after the motion to extend UN's armed embargo was on Ron was rejected. It says Mr Trump said it was unlikely that he would attend an emergency summit of world leaders, which by the way is so childish to me called by Putin, to avoid confrontation, right. So we have a world of meeting of world leaders in regard specifically to this topic to avoid confrontation and trump goes. Now I'm not GONNA go. I mean, that's just so dumb to me like it. So everything about the way we're going right now with his ministers, not just trump, but it's the way that our government is going is just childish and not naive and and every I mean everything about it. It's like it's like we're a bunch of junior high high schoolers acting. Stomping our feet, my ball I'm going home now year working for Russia you're working for China and it's just. So again, not that there's not some level of reality to certain things with those this dahmer stations but just broadly accused anybody disagree with as being an agent for Russia or vice versa is just dumb. But these people believe it's the it's the peak of political political prowess. You know, what took cues them of Russia, you your whatever. But then also give trump lots of money for military but then also call them spy when it works for you. You know. But it says, eleven members abstained including France Germany and Britain. That's huge France Germany and Britain, and they all are still on the side of at least JCP away. That's a big deal while the US in the Dominican Republican excuse me the Dominican Republic where the only. Yes. That is very reviewing. Aronie Presidents Ronnie said during the televised speech. I don't remember a previous time when the United States prepared resolution for months to strike a blow at the Islamic Republic of Iran and it garners only one vote. I mean guys that's that is that's a that's a big point. It shows you a change in the tide right says, but the great success was the United States was defeated in this conspiracy with humiliation Mr trump plans to trigger a clause that in two thousand, fifteen joint comprehensive plan of action signed between Iran. The other nations I mean I'm not joking by the way. So they pull out of the deal they despaired the deal they act like the deal doesn't work. It's wrong. It's broken. It's defunct doesn't Blah Blah Blah and then they spin back around now and they wanNA use the deal. Against Iran like do not realize the the level of Iraq being. I mean, I can't think of a better word for that. The fact that they're standing here doing that shows you that they know you see that they're just go there literally contradicting everything they've said just to achieve what they want to achieve right now, which is by the way everything I've always said about them. They will drop their entire era suits with the trying to accomplish. I mean I was because I was gonna say rational in that moment but I, just it. It is rational. But there's something about that. It really is. It's. Almost, like they don't care. That you see it or they think you're too stupid to see it. Seemingly with everything else including this. FBI team to rive in Beirut this weekend joined Portsmouth. The FBI wait a minute you're talking about a domestic. Law Enforcement Agency. Why in the hell is the FBI going to Beirut? Somebody asked me that online asking about the back and forth and I said well, what are they going to do there as it probably what the CIA does illegally here right they don't follow their rules they don't care I mean the point is the is only supposed to operate off US soil and we know they don't do that. They don't care. So the FBI screw it let's go the Beirut's it's just it's ridiculous. This is patently stupid that the FBI of all people is going to go to Beirut To investigate something happened in Beirut. I don't even know why they would allow that I. Mean It seems a joke to me. It's an absolute joke but my point that I made was gee, I wonder what they will find in their investigation. This is the equivalent of leading the Fox and the Hen House. But that was already happening with the Israeli government aid got there just before the unexpected regime change. Right guys if again, this is so transparent. Fact at the same bomb was used they tested in Syria. everything about this narrative is so incredibly obvious. And here's Israel. Six days in a row bombing bombing. Gaza right now, which all of that relates back to the same agenda of Iran, is this all of it at least their claim? And One more point end within today in regard to the same UAE thing. But really the larger point Cyril points out high. He deleted his tweet because of my reply to it, they can only rule by intimidation they stand if you stand up to them, they folded paper tigers and here's what she wrote. Well I hear he wrote, and this is actually the main point that I want to show you. This is really revealing to me and he deleted this by the way, but it was real. What are the? Higher ups in the UAE. He says if you see anyone. Inside the citizens or ex-pats. Violating Emirati Laurel regulations. Please hear how relevant that is moral regulations. You know like the maybe the moral enhancement that they've been talking about for decades that whole thing well, moral regulations and he goes such as. Promoting Anti Semitism. Disrespecting the UAE decisions or its leadership on social media go ahead report to the attorney. General. So, here's the United States and Israel working I mean they've been working with you forever but now openly us has been openly for a while but now Israel to openly working with the UAE. Acting like they're part of this new group and there's changing the world and fighting for freedom and Blah Blah Blah and they're straight up saying well, if they just if they even disrespect the actions of the government and its leadership on the right a social media post about how they're doing the wrong thing. We'll report it because GONNA get in trouble for it. How is it that we could pretend that our government fights for freedom and works with you know democracy countries when they're working openly with people like this. Openly, with groups like Saudi Arabia that is openly doing everything that US pretend they're fighting against. It how dumb do we have to beat and not see this? It just it. It actually bothers me that they can really straight up say that they're people cannot even speak about their government. With the point is that if that was happening in Iran, the US government would use that to claim that Iran needs to be overthrown. But happily work with people just like this but here's the here's what Syrian girl said. I'd like to report Prince Abdullah Bin Zayd son of the founder of UAE for a twenty, two, thousand, fourteen as and he just I don't Australia pictures because it might get me censored but he just he posted Israel kills children and he posted a bunch of clips and pictures of when that exactly happened. And as she points out because she responded, here's what happened. Come on brave brave browser freezing up. He's basically. Deleted the tweet. Why because clearly, there's an agenda right now to go the other direction. Interesting point either way but I wanted to make the real point about how obvious that our government can work with exactly what they pretend they're trying to remove from the world. I mean we know they work with people like. Osama bin, Laden, Saddam Hussein, and all the people that they've raised up to be the biggest villains of the world except that they were working with the arming and protecting them up until they suddenly became the worst person in the world. So it's interesting. You know the kind of thing like bringing in the Nazi scientists to become NASA or working with Dr East from Japan, who became the biological warfare program like we're taking the worst of these country, Pika nick making them our own. Is that what good honorable governments do counters and seem like it. and. So that kind of discussion when you see that they're actually you know insulating and supporting all of the worst countries around the world of the government's I should say. Doing some of the worst things that we can see the war crimes and the invasions and the ethnic cleansing what and then pointing to the ones that you can't see those things happening on and saying they're the bad guys because the real bad ones don't like those other people. Very simplistic breakdown of something that's very complicated but. It just it really bothers me that people can't see it for one of this. Really does. A lot of information today as always. Thank you for being here for all of you. I mean I. Actually, I'm actually really proud of everybody with two hundred plus people tuned in on the back Oh. Channel. I mean I look more than anything I. Love how much probably bothers the people who don't want you here watching the show, but the truth will go on because they won't stop it no matter what even censoring me from Youtube all across the board which I'm just waiting counting the days until it happens, but it will not stop me I will keep going and you know that. So, thank you for being here. Thank you for spreading the information two days. One two days until we get back on the main channel for those that are watching on youtube exclusively, which I hope you're not but if you are two more days we back on. Keep fighting. I love. You guys. Thank you for being here as always question everything. Come to your own conclusions. stage. Vigilant. For the last few years I've had this sense that everything I learned as a kid about how America's government works is completely wrong but I had no idea how bad things actually were until I saw this one graph. Researchers at Princeton University looked at more than twenty years worth of data to answer a pretty simple question. Does the government represent the people? Now this is what they found. This access year represents public support for any given idea on the left at zero percent are ideas that not a single American wants on the right at one hundred percent or ideas that everyone supports. This axis represents the likelihood of passing a law that reflects any of these ideas from zero to a one hundred percent chance. On this graph, an ideal republic would look like this. If percent of the public supports an idea. There's a fifty percent chance of it becoming law. If eighty percent of US support something, there's an eighty percent chance you get the idea. Now most Americans would probably agree that with a few exceptions, we should be as close to this ideal as possible. Unfortunately, the way America actually works doesn't even come close. Take an idea that nobody supports literally nobody and it has about a thirty percent chance of becoming federal law. Now, take an incredibly popular idea. The most popular idea this country has ever seen, and there's also about a thirty percent chance of it becoming law. This means that the number of American voters for or against any idea has no impact on the likelihood that Congress will make it law put another way and I'm just going to quote the Princeton study directly here. The preferences of the average American appeared to have only miniscule near-zero statistically nonsignificant impact upon public policy. So if you've ever felt like your opinion doesn't matter and that the government doesn't really care what you think. Well, you're right. But there's a catch. This. Flat Line only accounts for the bottom ninety percent of income earners in America. Economic Elites, business interests, people who can afford lobbyists get their own line. Look at how much closer their line is to the ideal. When they want something, the government is much more likely to do it, and when they don't, they have the power to completely block it from happening. No matter how much the rest of the country supports it they get what they want and guess who ends up paying for it. We pay for it with the most expensive healthcare in the world we pay for it with the tax code. It's a complete mess we pay for it with Internet, but slower and more expensive with wasteful spending a floundering education system, a catastrophic drug war and one in five American children born into poverty. Almost every major issue we face as a nation can be traced back to this graph. How does this happen? Well, just follow the money. Right now, it's perfectly legal to buy political influence in America. Here's how it works. Let's say a big bank wants a law that would force taxpayers to bail them out again, if they repeat the exact same reckless behavior that crash the global economy in two thousand eight, not exactly the most popular idea with the public and Congress knows that that should be the end of it but that's where the money comes in. It's perfectly legal for our bank to hire a team of lobbyists whose entire job is to make sure that the government gives the bank wants. Then those lobbyists can track down members of Congress who regulate banks and help raise a ton of money for their reelection campaigns. It's perfectly legal for those lobbyists to offer those same politicians, million dollar jobs at their lobbying firm then those lobbyists. Can literally right the language of this new bailout law themselves and handed off to the politician. They just buttered up with campaign money lucrative job offers, and it's perfectly legal for those politicians to take the lobbyists written language and sneak it through congress at the last second. So now you've got a law that greatly benefits the banks and the whole process can start over. This is how. Sense. I'm back here just to let you know that was unintentional. Quick insight to the background. Love you guys have a great night. For, the last few years I've had this sense that everything I learned. About
