Both sides see high stakes in gay rights Supreme Court case
"A controversial case on whether a Colorado website designer must do work for same sex couples is going before the U.S. Supreme Court Monday. Groups on both sides of the issue are already expressing their views. If 63 year old Laurie Smith is allowed not to serve gay couples. Liberal groups warn black people Muslims, Jews, and migrants could also be subject to discrimination. But conservative groups argue if the high court forces Smith to design wedding websites for same sex couples against her religious beliefs, other artists like photographers, writers, and musicians, could be forced to do work that violates their faith. This Colorado case going before the conservative majority high court is the second in 5 years, Colorado baker Jack Phillips won a limited decision when he refused to bake a wedding cake for a same sex couple.

Media Crushes Jerry Jones Over 1957 Photo
"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to the occupation show. Hey, I want to jump back into the conversation I was having about LeBron James and I want you to get the chance to hear Stephen a smith's take on Cherry Jones. Being pictured in a picture of something 68 years ago. Wrote a clip of Stephen a Smith. On my podcast, no mercy. Because you got people that wanted to come at me in the wrong way. I stand by what I said. In regards to a 14 year old in a still photo. And that's what you want to use to jump on them. You just highlight it. There's plenty of other things to jump when Jerry Jones about. You ain't never hired black coach. You didn't stand up for Colin Kaepernick and his rights as an American citizen to do what he did. You didn't speak out initially. You were actually hiding when it came to social justice issues, Jerry Jones. Jerry Jones would tell you I told him that. Where you at? I'll give a damn what you say. Say something. You gotta speak up. You can't be quiet. But that's entirely different. They use in the still photo of a 14 year old standing in a crowd in 1957, pre civil rights, pre voting rights because clearly the climate of those times were what it was. Do we need to regurgitate what the hell was going on in the gym crow south? We all know that story. Lynchings murders, rapes mayhem all types of stuff. All types of insidious despicable things that was done and inflicted upon the black race. We understand what the hell was going on down there. So if you're Jerry Jones and you're standing in the crowd, I'm looking at how you're acting more than I'm looking at what the environment is. I would love to let him finish, but I just need to talk about what he said. He didn't stand up for Colin Kaepernick, but he panned dak Prescott a very handsome. I'm out of money. So it make this make sense. He don't care about black people, but his quarterback is probably one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL. Oh, but he didn't stand up for Colin. 'cause Colin Kaepernick is an idiot. That's why he didn't stand up for Colin Kaepernick. But he's standing up for that Prescott.
Who Is DOJ Special Counsel Jack Smith?
"What happened here In this case several years ago about The Republican governor Bob McDonnell who had a hell of a political career ahead of him Bob McDonald took a lot of gifts Mostly his wife did too At the time there was not a legal in the state of Virginia Was a wise No Did he commit a federal offense That's the issue The public integrity section of the criminal division of the United States Department of Justice was headed by this guy Jack Smith Jack smith's wife just done a documentary on excuse me Michelle Obama And is donated heavily to the Biden campaign So these are radical Democrats very very partisan You can assume this U.S. attorney or this head of the public integrity section is the same So what happened Well there's a definition in federal law in terms of bribes official bribes There's a definition for it In the bribery statutes in the interpretation of it Basically it's an official act The official act done on behalf of somebody as a result of receiving a gift a quid pro quo There is no evidence whatsoever The governor MacDonald had done an official act for anybody That there was any quid pro quo But that didn't stop Jack Smith the new special counsel investigating Trump From expanding it
Glenn Kirschner Sheds Some Light on Special Counsel Jack Smith
"So let's get to the big question. Because we've been flailing without you as you know. Ever since the appointment of Jack Smith, who apparently is not the guy in the matrix, he puts on sunglasses. I think he is. But no, it's a different guy. Different guy. Okay. But Glenn, I think it was Barbara mcquaid, I saw on TV first that said, you know, the Justice Department wouldn't be doing a special prosecutor if they weren't going to indict. If they were going to decline. So, you know, and then everyone from tally nostalgia was like, this is no Jill wine banks initially said this is a waste of time and money. And you and I have been obviously impatient for justice for a long time and my first thought is, why isn't an indictment? Why is it, you know, yet another step. But, you know, it takes me a second to calm down. But just a little. But I think we all have Mueller fatigue, right? We think, oh God, are we starting all over again, blah, blah, blah. And a lot of people have pointed out how Lawrence tribe and others that they think this will speed it up and not slow it down. Dying to get your take on it because I do get that it's different a bill Barr's not in charge, it's not Trump's Justice Department. He is not starting from scratch, but give us your whole overview on this. Yes, Steph, I wish we had an hour. There's so much to unpack. And we do have, we have superhero fatigue. We thought bob Mueller was going to come in and take Trump out. His report did take Trump out the problem is Congress and the Department of Justice didn't act on the crimes that bob Mueller documented in volume two of the Trump Russia report. We thought Merrick Garland was going to come in and do what was necessary. It turns out in hindsight, Merrick Garland turned out to be too much judge and not enough prosecutors. So I am not prepared to say Jack Smith is galloping in on the white horse and he's going to take care of all this. However, first thing I did was I talked to all my Friends and former colleagues who worked with or for Jack Smith. I don't know Jack personally, to a person, they can not speak highly enough of his determination to hold criminal politicians accountable. Without regard to politics or criticism or fear of failure, here's why I really like the appointment of Jack Smith. We can do an autopsy on whether Merrick Garland should have appointed a special counsel. There are good arguments on both sides, but I think the bottom at the bottom of it all wants Trump announced he was a candidate. Let's face it, Merrick Garland is Joe Biden's attorney general. So to have Joe Biden's attorney general going after Joe Biden's only announced political opponent in the 2024 election, I believe, left Merrick Garland, no other choice but to appoint a special counsel.
The Rude Pundit Weighs in on Trumps Twitter Return
"Good morning. Hi. I think you summed it up best. You said, let's face it. Anyone who supports Donald Trump doing anything is just a human being. Thank you. Oh, yeah. That's in response to, you know, weird Elon letting him back on Twitter. And if people are going, I support this. No, no, don't support it for anything. Unless it's like for sitting in a prison cell and facing the walls for the rest of his life. And I support. Yeah. So far, that's a big bag of rats, right? So Elon did some fake poll. It's like, oh, the people have spoken. He's back on and Trump's like, I'm not going back and I had my Jude social. You can't legally. Big bag of rats. Yeah. So for now. Early on that, before we let anybody on, we're going to have to look at it. We're going to have to, you know, they were going to have a group, get together and talk about it. No, no, he just let the bots decide. Yeah, no, exactly. AOC said, I don't know, man. Last time he was here this platform was used to incite an insurrection multiple people died. The vice president of the United States was nearly assassinated and hundreds were injured, but I guess that's not enough for you to answer the question. Twitter poll it is. I mean, you know, and the Kanye's back on and he just tweeted shalom with a smiley face. So that means ignore the antisemitism. Right. Yes, and apparently he's decorated his house for a Hanukkah. So speaking for the Jews, I just like to say do you speak for the Jews? You know what? Whenever I feel like it, you know, I'm kind of dewy. I'm up. For everybody else. I think that should be my mom was Jewish. I was raised Jewish. I officially should be your tagline, the rude pundit. Kind of dewy. Yeah, you said funny. What does my Hollywood money? Exactly. We asked George Charles directly for money when he came on this show when he said no. No. Yeah. Seems like you get credit for giving me a lot of money already. You might as well. You actually said funny, I thought of woke mob was supposed to kill Twitter and cancel culture, but it was capitalism and stupidity all along. I don't think I've ever seen anyone other than Donald Trump blow up a business this fast, right? Yeah. Yeah. No, no, it's really kind of a thing of beauty. And I mean, you know, I like Twitter a lot. I haven't met a lot of people on Twitter. I use it, but you know, if it goes, I think my work productivity is going to go up exponentially. It is a time suck. And I would just like to say, I think Mastodon and I are going to have a couple of problems because I have it so that my tweets show up on Mastodon and apparently they took down a tweet where I said FU to libs of TikTok. Oh boy. I was like, eh, Mastodon. We're going to have to have a talk. Some people are making some great points I thought, rude. Jeff tedrick said long off, are you kidding me? Trump's tweets as he gets indicted are going to be off the hook. Pass the popcorn. I mean, that's the other thing. He will start whether it's true social or they will be able to Jack Smith willing to use those because they always can. As evidence, right? Yeah. It's just like it's like if you told someone something and you know, you brought them in and questioned them and said, yeah, Trump told me this. Yeah. You're listening to me for free right now, and that's awesome because more and more things aren't free right now. I mean, think about

Kurt Schlicter's Advice for Voting in Future Elections and Winning
"We lost. We got our asses kicked. And I want to ask you if you could do one thing, and we're going to skip everybody I have heard, agrees we need to do early voting and ballot harvesting, okay? Good. Let's do that. That's not enough. What do we need to do past that? Oh my gosh, there are a wide range of things. First thing I would sit down and do is take advantage of the time we have. And do some deep thinking about this because there is a lot of stuff. Let's start with the big picture, voters. We need to be more strategic. Stop voting with your heart all the time and vote with your head, some of the time. Doesn't mean you always elect Mitt Romney, but sometime you have to decide, you know, I would like Joe blow, but maybe Joe Smith might be more likely again elected. You've got to be strategic. I think people misunderstand principles. Here's my principle. I win. I win. You lose. Yes. Yes, that is my principal. I love the people going, well, you know, Lisa Cohen, correct about the election system. Well, you have to take power to do that. And that requires Harry Potter wand. Well, and part of it, okay, if you look at Arizona, we have to accept the fact that it's as bad as they did and tried to prove to everyone that that they want to make it look as much like a stolen election as possible. In the end, the lower ballot candidates were winning big time and one as many votes as the Democrat who beat Carrie Lake. So I don't know how that's going to turn out. And I don't want to create a fight. But we need to accept the fact that our message is not getting through. Yes. And we need to look at where that message worked and didn't and figure out who the correct messenger is.
Brady, Bucs beat Seahawks 21-16 in historic Germany game
"The Buccaneers are back at 500 after Tom Brady threw for two touchdowns in a 21 16 victory against the Seahawks in Munich Brady connected with Julio Jones and Chris Godwin for scores and was 22 of 29 for 258 yards He's four and zero and NFL regular season games played outside the U.S. I think the fan turnout was incredible It felt like a very electric from the time we took the field Gino Smith through touchdown passes to Tyler Lockett and marquise Goodwin to get the Seahawks within 21 16 with three 58 remaining I'm Dave ferry
Marco Rubio Calls for Senate GOP Leadership Vote to Be Postponed
"Got some breaking news. Yeah, we do have breaking out of Florida, even though I know we're all eyes on Arizona, but look, you know, I like to kind of scan the horizon and see what's going on. And Marco Rubio did not expect to see breaking out of Marco Rubio today, but we do have breaking out of Marco Rubio because Marco Rubio has just released a statement calling for the Senate GOP leadership vote next week should be postponed. He continues. First, we need to make sure that those who want to lead us are genuinely committed to fighting for the priorities and values of the working Americans of every background who gave us big wins in states like Florida. Charlie, what does that mean? What could he be? He's going after the turtle, man.
Some Ballot Measure Updates From California
"Here's another couple of interesting things. And other ballot measures that we haven't spoke about legalized sports gambling in California lost terribly. Isn't that interesting? Legalized sports gambling in California lost pretty badly. Prop 30 a measure to tax the rich to fund electric car credits in California failed. Okay, explain this one to me. How does that fail in California? I'm telling you, California has some fight left in it, man. I mean, the story of this cycle is how the Midwest underperformed in California over performed. And look, this was a sinister plot by the way of the crony capitalist company lift to try to get taxpayer taxpayers to get them to fund their electric car fleet basically. It was a crony capitalist handout. Prop 31 upheld the state's ban on flavored tobacco products. California legalized abortion as a constitutional right, but they upheld a ban on flavored tobacco products.
Why Were the Polls SO Off?
"Is something interesting though, Jack, one of the reasons why the polls were so often some of these states is that the Democrats have actually figured out a way to outperform polls by mastering vote by mail. That's right. That's exactly right. It's in the same way and Charlie, you're the point the other day where in the Trump era, we had become accustomed to sort of seeing a poll and then adding three. That was my built in algorithm. 5 points. And that was like a built in bias that we all kind of had. And that was the Trump effect, but we've also found that that doesn't really exist when Donald Trump is not on the ballot. We saw that in 2018, we're seeing that in 2022. It just is what it is. He has a way to connect with a huge swath of this country in the Midwest, in the south, in the rust belt. Obviously, that other candidates just have not been able to replicate. And it just is what it is. And you can talk about that at length as to why. But we're not seeing the same turnout numbers when he is on the ballot and when he isn't. And so because of that, those polls and we said before, the polls for this election actually were pretty good in many cases. Now, some outlets out there, but I think maybe we should take another look at and determine whether or not we want to continue relying on them. And I think that RCP, by the way, has a great accountability project that they're working on right now where they're going to be going through and then ranking and stacking all of the pollsters. Using the final outcomes, waiting it by the last few elections, and then seeing where we are. And I think that's great. I think that's fantastic. But at the same time, the Trump effect that we were thinking about. So, okay, that works in Trump's on the ballot. But this vote by mail effect that they've been able to demonstrate here. Now through at least two consecutive national elections. All right, that's real.
Here's Why You Can't Have Ranked Choice Voting
"Why you can't have ranked choice voting. Is the worst. This is so frustrating. Protect democracy, but allow ranked choice voting. Kelly shabaka, she won the most votes she won a plurality of votes in a four way race with 44%. So she won the race, right, Charlie. Not in Alaska. But she had the most votes. Doesn't matter. You have to get 50 plus one or else or else what? You go to the second round of ranked choice voting. The what? So in Alaska, the way it works, and this was designed and implemented because thanks to project veritas, we know this. Lisa Murkowski put together a coup in Alaska. And basically said that if you do not get 50 plus one, then it goes to the second round. Now, some people say, well, Charlie, to be fair, we're not won his race, but he didn't get more than 50%. Well, that's a runoff system. This is a this is not even allowing for a runoff, which I would support. If there is a runoff now between Murkowski and shabaka, then great. That's fine. Let's do it. Shabaka would win by 20 points. But it would be would it be would have run off with the ranked choice voting again? No, no, no, no. Well, that's the point, is that there isn't. Instead of a runoff, which is annoying but understandable. Right. Because some people say, well, hold on a second. But Georgia. Like Charlie, you know, isn't a runoff system helping you in Georgia. Of course it is. Yes, it is, because Herschel Walker did not get a plurality. We're not going to plurality. The point is this is that this now goes to this goofy algorithmic second and third round, where they have to tabulate the votes, and I'll be very honest. I do not even understand how this is tabulated, where it depends on whether or not people ranked shabaka or if they did a second candidate. Shabaka's hope in this whole tabulation process is that if a vast majority of people only ranked shabaka and left the rest of the ballot completely blank. That's her hope.
Charlie Reviews Montana's 'Born Alive' Measure
"Please re up the Montana prop for me? If anybody is in Montana, please clarify this for me because it's just, it will take your breath away. Did you see this, Tyler? It must have been a massive out of state campaign. To say vote no on prop whatever. I don't think anyone read the prop. Okay. This is Montana. I want to read the prop for everyone there. Would you vote yes or no? To require medical care to infants who are born alive, including after an attempted abortion. Would you provide medical care to a baby that is born alive? How do you think Montana is voting on that? 52% of Montana voters say no, let the baby die. It's crazy. That's 52% now. I guarantee you I don't live in Montana. I haven't actually didn't get a chance to get there this summer. I guarantee you there was a lot of money probably spent on vote no for prop one 31. In defense in defense of this and of course I'm not going to defend it in principle. I am going to defend it in process. Same as with the Kansas outlawing abortion prop, you need to get better lawyers and you need to consult with legislators in order to write these. I read the language, the language was done sensical. I'm telling you dude, the language was not good in Montana.
How Did Arizona Get So Screwed Up?
"Asked a really good question here. And I just want to recap it and reiterate it. Charlie, how did Illinois get how did Arizona get so screwed up? Okay, so how did Colorado go this cycle? A great candidate hiding in all lost by 17 points, right? How about Washington's Tiffany smiley lost huge to patty Murray great candidate, right? How about organ? I don't think an organ, I don't think the Republicans are going to win an organ, despite a really good campaign. What does that mean? So those are three states in the American West where they tried to do mass universal vote by mail. And that same Soros funded strategy came to the shores or came to the edges of Arizona. What about 15 years ago? Yeah, conservative land. And no one really thought much of it, and it was started to get implemented and people really accepted it in Arizona for quite some time. And so then there were some people that praised God fought back a little bit. They said, no, we still need some mechanism to be able to vote in person. And so they're like, okay, whatever. As we try to wean you off of the drug of voting in person, we'll to these voting centers that you'll never really visit throughout the valley, right, Tyler. They'll kind of be on the edges and whatever. But because of our program, because of Steve Bannon, because the Tucker Carlson because of 2000 mules, people change their behavior, and they have this whole infrastructure that's really built for pre canvassing, right? To count all the ballots before election day, not for this. And now basically we're sending this referendum. Like, no, you got to change it, right? So Austin, Austin's going to the legislature. People say, what can it be fixed? Austin is going to be the youngest member of the Arizona legislature. Austin day one, we're going to get this fixed. We have to
Tyler Bowyer on Some Suspicious Ballot Behavior in Maricopa County
"Can you reiterate some of the math you were just talking about right here? Yeah, so I know a lot of people are on and I got tons of messages between yesterday and today because the media is trying to put out there in the world that like Katie Hobbs is going to be governor and stuff. It's just crazy. To reiterate what happened last night. And I apologize. I'm losing my voice from talking last 40. For the last two weeks. The media seems to have coordinated with the recorder's office and the elections department down at Maricopa County. And they were supposed to drop a massive drop yesterday at 6 p.m.. And that also happened to be the same time that Carrie Lake was going on Tucker Carlson. And she was on Tucker Carlson and it seemed it was odd. I mean, maybe it's just coincidence, but they did not drop the ballots that they were supposed to drop at 6 p.m.. And Carrie was on Tucker. And so then all of a sudden, it was delay delay delay delay, and then she got off Tucker, and then all of a sudden, they finally released and they said, oh, just kidding, we're not releasing all of the data that we said. We're going to release, we're going to release only a fraction of it. And at the same time, an article posted at the Arizona republic that was like, Katie Hoff still has a chance, basically. So that's what's going on.
Kari Lake: 'We Will Never Have Another Election Run Like This'
"Will never have another election run like this. I'm sick of it and the people are sick of it. And we are going to don't worry, Charlie, and don't worry, America and don't worry, Arizona. We're going to change things up so we don't have this happening every single election. And we'll work very hard to make sure that doesn't happen. I'm always going to speak the truth. And I will be Arizona's cheerleader, but when we have something that's not working, we have to admit it. And it's not working the way we're doing things. I think, you know, there could be some intentional there could be some intentional actions here to slow roll this. They always intentionally have the early ballots ready to go. We roll those out on election night. They favor the Democrats and they want to bring down the excitement for Republicans. This is a Republican year. Republicans and even people who aren't Republicans are tired of the dead end policies of the Democrat party. But they wanted to throw, like I said, throw cold water on our movement. They want to take that victory away. They want to make it look like America first is not thriving when in fact it is. Don't believe the narrative that you're hearing. They're going to get two or three days of this where they're saying, oh, Trump didn't do well. His picks actually did do quite well. They did very well in America first movement is still alive and well. And I think they didn't want us to have our big moment with our big victory speech. They did this to me in the primary. They slow rolled the results when they finally led us to clear victory. And when they finally declared me the winner, I was only up, I think, a half a point. So the media ran with the false narrative that I squeaked out a win, a narrow victory, and then later in the coming days they finally counted the rest of the ballots only to reveal that I won by 5 points, which is pretty good when you're up against four opponents. I won by 5 points. But the media never covered that. They kept with that narrative that it was a squeaker. And I think they're going to try to do that again. I believe we win, and I think we win by a good margin. And we are going to go on to reform our elections so we never had this embarrassment again. Yeah,
"smith " Discussed on Frank Michael Smith Show
"Like we need to have people batting three 50 and 400, like the Ted Williams is. So I'm saying, juice up their bats, give them a little bit of bigger bats, and turbocharge the batter. Turbocharged the bats, like maybe not quartz fats necessarily, but increase the barrel width or something. So I want like the worst hitters on teams to be batting like 300. There are the kind of skinny barrels. I mean, yeah, it's supposed to be hard. Like baseball's a really hard sport. There might not be a single harder thing. I don't know if every barrel is actually, I think some bats are have like slightly different like the way the way it builds up to the barrels. I don't know what the exact requirements are. Either way, I was thinking that just putting more pressure on the pitchers, making them pitch even faster. Not in speed wise in terms of increasing their pitch count clock and then give them a little bit of bigger bats. It may be short in the game up a little bit, or shorten the season. I think I don't think that's the problem. The game, Emma games are not that long. You're right, we're just humans are naturally becoming worse and worth their attention. NFL games are way longer. Yeah, and there's way more in this way. Football games the longest. People love college football. It's very true. I just think that in my head when I was coming up with these ideas, I was like, gotta come up with something. And in on that idea, though, that is just bigger bats, like when you're outside playing. I don't know if the bigger bats is a buy, but there should be something there should be an added entertainment. A middle ground between the Savannah bananas in the Kansas City Royals, because to put it to put it bluntly, the Kansas City Royals in the baseball the pirates is just boring. As someone who played baseball growing up, I want to see them do something to the game that doesn't take away from the integrity. It needs to be a little bit more drama. Yeah, like I said, they might need to bring Garrett murawski into play let's play first base. That guy is the king of drama from that HBO show. Local Pittsburgh legend. Did you see that? Did you see the Tommy Pham slap? With jock? No, I did. I saw the clip about jaw getting interviewed. I didn't see the physicals lab. That's the biggest baseball story of the season. Yeah, that's shameful, that that's the biggest story. But I love Jacques Peterson. I didn't realize Jacques was such an idiot. Yeah, he's a complete idiot, but he's like he's an arid and he hits the ball to the moon. But he's actually a really good guy. He's a really big heart too. Great player, but he's such a stereotypical meathead. Yeah. He makes no sense. I mean, it's not like quite my cup of tea, but I mean, this drama is actually good. Like the baseball needs more stuff like that. Yes. You're right. And the fact that that's the biggest story that they've been able to put out for the last couple of weeks is just shows you the lack of drama and more slaps, more fantasy football. Maybe the winner of each game gets to just like peg one.

I'm buying <Speech_Male> all these ideas. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I <SpeakerChange> don't know what <Speech_Male> someone's gonna have to pitch me <Speech_Male> for me not to buy. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Get you a stinker at <Speech_Male> the end. Yeah, if you <Speech_Male> got any stinkers, <Speech_Male> throw them in the comments, <Speech_Male> DM me at chef <Speech_Male> Roy. I mean, I'm here <Silence> for any ideas. <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> Okay, <Silence> you got one more? <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I did have one more, <Speech_Male> but did you already <Speech_Male> give three? I gave <Speech_Male> three. Okay. <Speech_Male> I could say that one for <Speech_Male> another week. Honorable <Speech_Male> mention, go ahead. Honorable <Speech_Male> mention, <Speech_Male> I think that <Speech_Male> the obvious statement <Speech_Male> needs to be said that <Speech_Male> baseball <Speech_Male> in its modern and the modern <Speech_Male> day era is losing <Speech_Male> a lot of the younger <Speech_Male> fan base and <Speech_Male> it's a game that sticks <Speech_Male> to its roots, but <Speech_Male> we <Speech_Male> need to do something different <Speech_Male> and we've seen these <Speech_Male> dumb teams <Speech_Male> like the Savannah bananas. <Speech_Male> I don't know if you've seen <Speech_Male> them on TikTok or whatever <Speech_Male> they're on, but they get <Speech_Male> huge traction. They <Speech_Male> do like TikTok dances <Speech_Male> and then they throw the pitches. <Speech_Male> It's completely <Speech_Male> overdone. I saw <Speech_Male> the Rutledge wood, shout <Speech_Male> out the rudder. <Speech_Male> He posted something. It's a <Speech_Male> great family environment. It's <Speech_Male> like free <Speech_Male> food and drinks. <Speech_Male> They sell <Speech_Male> out. He brings his <Speech_Male> little kid there because he lives in <Speech_Male> Georgia and his little <Speech_Male> daughter loves it and they have <Speech_Male> so much fun and it <Speech_Male> got me thinking. <Speech_Male> Baseball needs to accommodate <Speech_Male> to the younger <Speech_Male> fan base, but they <Speech_Male> can't go as far as doing <Speech_Male> what those guys are doing <Speech_Male> and having the pitchers do TikTok <Speech_Male> dances. So <Speech_Male> I was thinking <Speech_Male> NFL does it. <Speech_Male> I was thinking that there's <Speech_Male> got to be a middle ground <Speech_Male> that they meet on, <Speech_Male> where we can actually <Speech_Male> give some <SpeakerChange> character <Speech_Male> to these baseball <Speech_Male> players. <Silence> And on top of <Speech_Male> that, I think that <Speech_Male> to get younger <Speech_Male> people to like it, <Speech_Male> they need to <Speech_Male> our best players can't be batting <Speech_Male> two 67.

"And as a 26 year old guy, I still think it's incredible. I've seen that woman still does it, and the guy who stacks chairs. Still does it. There's nothing wrong with those shows. There's a good shows, but I don't think it's a TV drop. No, I don't think it is wrong. Exactly. That's an inner read of drop, but that got me thinking. What we could do with the halftime shows is limitless. We need to get at this year's NBA Finals. They need to like you said, not cut to will bonds ugly mug because I see it enough. I need to see them do something funny and real. And what I think that that would be is like some sort of a talent show where they get the people from like the best people from America's Got Talent. Get some guy to do a magic trick and cut somebody in half or light somebody on fire. I don't know. I think it has to have some sort of competition element though. Like I think that like, okay, bring in like three people and they do it based on the crowd applause, or we can all text in and vote on something. They would have to be something that not necessarily competition, but some continuation from one episode to another. It can't be like Black Mirror where every episode stands alone. It has to be shout out to Brett right there. Yeah. It has to be something where you had to pay attention to the last halftime show to understand. So that's why I think it would be funny if they went in with like a bracket almost and it would be like they do like each halftime two people go at it and whoever's the better performer gets the bigger applause. One on one tournament with like yeah, just like do a thing where you say with rappers. Do a thing where you were just like the general public but I think that with rappers it'd be super fun but you get like a.

"I think that we're at that point. I think that's just a risk you run. Give me your next idea. All right, next idea, firing it up. This one is inspiration for Mark Wahlberg in a movie. We're going back to Philadelphia in the eagles. Bring back invincible every NFL team should televise. Every NFL team should televise and promote one person that gets to make their team. Okay, give them league minimum or even less than league minimum. I'm sure people would be happy with that. But it would be such a cool promotional event for every team being like, all right, we're back to our local tryouts here in Pittsburgh. Let's cut to the field and they cut to the field and it's obviously like some yinzers that are crushing Heineken's and Ying lings on the field. But then there's people taking it really seriously, like our buddy mace Roman, who was a player for the duquesne football team who just signed a deal with the WWE. He would show up and he'd be knocking heads around. So it's like, I think that it would be funny to see and it would be great. It would be great television for everyone. It'd be great for the publicity for these teams in their cities. Are you serious about this one? I'm serious. I think it'd be fun. I mean, and then we'd get that true underdog story of some guy who ends up making the team as wide receiver, and then he's the next Cooper Cup. Like, it could happen. Then he's an all pro. He's an all pro. $20 million. Two years later, he's like signed max deals. He's mahomes number one target. Hard knocks is dying. Hard knocks is dying. They need something to revitalize it and I think it's bringing back invincible. Yeah, like almost like a rough and rowdy vibe. Yeah, sure, get it to be a little bit gradient, funny and make the accommodator chug some beers or something. I think it would be a make it into really kind of a reality show where by the second or third episode you know the main characters. Yes, you literally call the executive producers from like too hot to handle in the love show on HBO or whatever it is. And get them to help direct it to make it like this drama infested like stupid thing. Yeah, some people get kicked out. One guy comes in drunk. Definitely. Someone's getting a drunk, there's someone's abusing drugs. Some guys spray all over his head. It would just be great. Kind of like a, yeah, like a rough and rowdy mixed with longest yard, mixed with invincible. Makes it hard knocks. I know I presented the idea, but I am hard pie on that. You so far you've bought both your ideas. Yeah, they're my ideas. They're pretty good too. What do you think? I think this guy wouldn't have to be like in training camp, but this could be the contest that if you make it, you get to at least be in training camp. Yeah, and every team has to select one. So it's like, if you're this is pre training camp. Yeah, like if you're a team like Tennessee Titans or something and you get no one good shows up to training camp. You still gotta sign someone. It's like he's that guy. He gets like a special Jersey. His Instagram account blows up. It's like this whole thing. That's a buy. I'm in. Perfect. Thank you. Okay, my next one is halftime shows. Oh.

"Hey, how we doing folks, chef Roy and the building happy to be here. It's a beautiful Thursday afternoon. We're doing something different today. We're not doing anything food. We are doing something sports, but it's nothing serious. We're doing wackiest ideas and sports. So for example, you know, maybe there's something like a promotion or some crazy idea. You know, it doesn't have to be so serious, shouldn't be like the NBA should change this role, even though I've done episodes like that before. So we're gonna get right into it. Roy, you look like a sketchy commissioner right now anyway. So why don't you lead it off? Yeah, I'm looking like a sketchy commissioner of the NHL 'cause I got a great idea. So hockey's great. It's very electric, fast paced sport, but I think that there's something that could be done to really up the ante and change the game up a little bit. And that is getting a new goalie in the net. That goalie, not like other goalies, he would be like a sumo wrestler or someone that's like 600 pounds. Like you've seen the TV show on TLC, my 400 pound life, get one of those guys, throw them in the net. And I just don't think you're scoring. Get him at the start of the show, not when he loses all the weight. Yeah, no, he can't be on a journey to a better path. We need him like eating mcdouble, ice cream. So here's the problem with that. I mean, I think it's a great idea. But the problem would be the pads have a size limit. So this guy would be taking pucks to the thigh a lot. But there's ways we could combat that, such as we could get him to wear like four layers of Under Armour, maybe a little bit of Kevlar or something like that. Or just a sumo wrestler doesn't need to be a 400 pound guy. I think a sumo wrestler could play. Yeah, yeah. I think that they'd be really good goalies. I mean, can one team at least try it? I know it's like it seems like a little crazy, but yeah, like the Detroit red wing stink. What's holding them back from bringing in a sumo wrestler is goalie. They're not gonna be any worse..

"And so I think that, like you said, I read somewhere that they had to run through a rehearsal. He did not say that joke Will Smith was there. There's a script, there's lines he's supposed to say. He's a professional. So, you know, you can do something off the dome, like anyone who's done stand up or watch stand up comedian, do anything. They're very quick with it. And I think that it was just a cheap shot. And I think it was low down and it was very dirty. I also know that he is fully aware of the press run, but the Smiths have had as a couple. I'm sure he couldn't do the entanglement thing because it's already been beaten to watch everybody knows entanglement like whatever. So he's like, what's the next thing that he could do? And I think that maybe he looked out into the audience and he was like, um, Will Smith Jada? Um. Look at her hair. Let me just say that, which is so like, it's so childish and embarrassing to do that, especially as a black man. And as a black man on top of that who is fully aware, the relationship that black women have with their hair. I saw somewhere that he talks to someone and he said he didn't know that she had alopecia. Even if you don't know, I think that just in general, I think when a woman decides to shave her head, something happened. Sometimes it's just for a new look, but also a lot of times it's like, oh, something might be going on. For me, I shaved my head a couple of times. I was in distress. Nobody knew specifically what it was, but it was just like emotionally I had to remove the hair from my head and start off, but if somebody would have joked about it at that time, it would have been devastating to me, especially because when you think about as a black woman because of the way that the culture is set up, a lot of our femininity lies in our hair for better or for worse..

"I tell Sarah this all the time. I would kill someone for Sarah. Like point blank. You're messing with my girl. That's how I feel. Because it's not like a comfort thing that Will Smith just waltzes up there and does that. Like, you have to be in a state where you're like, yeah, I only am seeing this one thing. There's no one else here. I honestly feel like it was maybe even like a blackout moment. I am doing this now because I have reached my wits end. I have a really big problem with some of the conversation around now Will Smith is an abuser. Yeah. I have a very, very big problem with that. And I'm trying to say this carefully in AA because I feel like the black community can take this personally for so many reasons. But the white community, this is not the place to be putting your personal trauma into it. I feel like a lot of people maybe that have experienced abuse in some way, saw that and it triggered them, and then it became this whole thing about how now Will Smith needs to donate time to domestic violence shelters and all of these other things. And I'm like, this is where the conversation starts to veer off track. Like, this is not what we should be discussing at this moment. And it's where I think personally, like white women, especially who claim to be allies and feminists and all of these things have to be quiet and listen and observe. I know that you've specifically had a moment with a person on your Instagram because you went to stories and I was like, oh yes, I'm sitting back and drinking the tea here.

And it was really a world tour. Well, we flew to Seattle and then I woke up in the morning and I put on the news and it was the mayor of Seattle or the governor and he was telling how they were going to go into lockdown. He said, the sold out show at state theater Patti Smith and her band is canceled, and I was like, what? I mean, I didn't know what was really going on. I knew something I knew the aura of things, but and that's how I found out. And so then we left and we went home. And I thought, okay, we have to be in quarantine for 14 days.

Tell you what we got going on. I will be talking about Lakers trade rumors, Lakers, crisis mode, Westbrook getting benched, just in fields trade rumors, and basketball back in Seattle. But before I get there, this is season two of this podcast. I did maybe like ten or so episodes before and I didn't love how it was going. I wanted to make sure when I came back, I had a well thought out strategy. So we're trying to come live to you at least one time a week. Ideally on Tuesdays, Tuesday afternoons with a nice episode for you guys. They're going to be condensed. I'm thinking like ten minutes max, I know you guys are busy. So we're going to be getting to it, the podcast is back. You can also find it on YouTube to search my name, fry Michael Smith show. It'll pop up, great graphics on there. If you prefer to watch it rather than listen to it, it'll be close to the same thing, except this one might have a little message for me at the beginning. That's all. I hope you guys enjoyed the show. Rate review, DM me on IG and enjoy the show. With each passing day, the Lakers are inching closer to a full blown crisis. I'm Frank Michael Smith, this is the Frank Michael Smith show, presented by underdog fantasy. Heading into the season, this was a team with championship aspirations, but instead, they fall flat in their face. They're barely playoff contenders and hardly resemble the team that took home a title. Now playing without LeBron and AD for extended periods of time is an optimal, but it goes far beyond that. Quite literally every single off season move they've made has negatively impacted the team, trading tres, Kuzma, KCP, and a first runner for us. Flop, letting go of Caruso, big width, letting Schroeder walk, not great, and finally, trading rhino for scraps, and signing a group of the oldest basketball players available. Complete head scratcher. Almost every single one of the players the Lakers moved on from is having a career year while none of their additions have hit. Most notably, Russell Westbrook. To say Russ is invaluable would be an understatement. There's an argument to be made that he's the least valuable player in the entire league. He's almost single handedly making the Lakers a loser. In yet another losing effort for the pacers, the Rus saga hit rock bottom. Frank Vogel Benjamin said, I'm playing the guys I thought were going to win the game. There's a list of people to blame for this epic misfire from coaching, to management, to LeBron. Now the Lakers are left in desperation mode. The single asset if you can call them that, that the Lakers had to offer in trades is tailor Horton Tucker, a 21 year old role player averaging 11 points per game. Here's my take. It is funny, we've got to this point. Taylor Horton Tucker, 11 points per game, $30 million contract. That's the Lakers trade asset. That's the only guy they can move. They have gigantic contracts, LeBron AD and Russ. Of course. The real problem with this team is not that they can't make a trade at the deadline is not that all AD got injured and LeBron's missed some time. It's that nobody plays defense. You can't win this league without playing defense, and they gave up a 120 to just about everyone every single night they play. I do find the THT news funny though. I was scrolling Instagram, you see some Lakers pages in your explore page. Oh, THT. Now he's on the trade block. Who are we talking about here? This is your solution? This is what it's come to. What team is like oh man, can't wait to trade for THT. Who are you getting back for that? He's got a bad contract. He doesn't shoot well. He's kind of slow. Who are you getting back for that to make your team of playoff team? It's ridiculous news. Back to Russ though, this is the real news. He got benched, it's long overdue, and it's not because of his offense, which we all know we can't shoot. He hasn't been a valuable asset in years, but it's his defense he got him fetched. He couldn't guard caris levert. He wasn't supposed to let him go right. He let him go right, and they lose to the pacers. They've been getting blown out. This is long overdue. I don't think Ross is gonna take it well at large, the situation with the Lakers is a dumpster fire. It is only going to get worse. 80 has no timetable for return. LeBron is his can only take so much, it's only a matter until he breaks down just like we saw Kevin Durant break down with too much load. This is going to get worse before it gets better. LA's in for a long season. It's all but official, the NBA's expanding and the newest team is a sure path to call Seattle home. Ever since the sonics, ditch Seattle for OKC, the city has been clamoring for a franchise. Very quick refresher, the only reason they left is because Seattle refused to build a new arena. But in 2018, the city invested $1.1 billion into renovations on climate pleasure. Not only was this to accommodate the kraken, but also to send a message to the NBA. We won our basketball back. Now it is worth noting, Adam silver hasn't publicly committed to it yet. So it's hard enough the timeline here. However, I've spoke with people in the current cracking management and they're nearly certain of it. Of course, when expansion does happen, it required two teams. The other most logical destination is Vegas, who's in an almost identical situation after building an arena for the nights. According to silver, the buy in price for a new franchise would be extremely high, even higher than the $3.3 billion spent on acquiring the Brooklyn Nets in 2019. Okay, here's my take. Of course, I'm happy basketball is coming back to Seattle. It's long overdue. They have great fans. You don't have to look the Mariners. You don't have to look at the cracking. Look at their MLS team. They're always doing big numbers. The real lesson here though is about money on the NBA side and on the city side. First, let's talk about the NBA side. Owners want expansion, not because it's gonna make basketball better, not because there are so many players that could play in the league. There's already plenty of franchises that are not competitive. Adding two teams is going to make the league less competitive. Will it be completely noticeable all the time? No, probably won't. But it's about money. Adding these two franchises will net the NBA billions of dollars and in the collective bargaining agreement, none of that money gets split with the players. So imagine yourself as an owner. Do you want to collect and split this billions of dollars checks all the other owners? Of course you do. Now that the city side, if you're a city like Seattle and you're in danger of losing your team because you won't build a new arena, you build the new arena. Look, you ended up doing it anyway, and now you have to buy back in at over $3.3 billion. What a gigantic loss, whatever, though, it's in the past. I'm happy basketball's back in Seattle. Soon, at the conclusion of the NFL regular season, Matt nagy was unsurprisingly one of the first head coaches to get chopped. Bears GM Ryan pace went down with them, meaning in the fall, the bears will have a new head coach and GM. Of course, this has left bears fans wondering what would be next, but they certainly weren't expecting this. Mike sando of the athletic reported the strange news. According to at least one NFL head coach, who remained anonymous, the bears coaching vacancy could become a more lucrative landing spot for coaches, if they had more freedom to trade just in fields. All right, this is shocking news for a number of reasons. First, the bears just gave up a king's ransom to trade up for fields. Secondly, field wasn't all that bad as a rookie. He showed flashes. Trading him would likely net the bears a hall of future assets and free up the head coach to find a QB more suited to his style. Perhaps it could be done via free agency, the trademark, or maybe through the draft again. Regardless, the news comes as a shock to the entire league. Here's my take. This is a massive L for bears fans. It's a gut punch. They're coming off the heels of naggy, trubisky, and another mediocre season. This is not what they imagine what happened. Why wouldn't you just get a head coach who could maximize field to play? That seems so simple. No, can't have that. We have to have trade rumors instead. Now, it might make sense we saw the Arizona Cardinals do it with Rosen and they draft the Kyler Murray, whatever you might think of Murray's better than Rosen. But that's not this draft. There is no player like that in the draft right now. This isn't a flip situation. I suppose they could trade fields, but what are you gonna do after that? You're gonna go on free agency, take another risk? No, you traded your draft capital for fields. It doesn't make much sense to me. Fields is a good player. He's proved it this season, and the bears just seem to be incompetent. Higher GM, higher a coach that believe in him, you already gave the assets, make it happen. Thank you guys for watching.

I mean this is what christopher dial flannery was keyed gloved allies into sydney. Christopher duff flannery of course was known to kill and he was a hitman rogerson was odd believe certainly he an alibi for number of murders flannery was involved in and that my will have included nettie smith as well in a number of motors so one of the things that really is indicative of the sort of person rogerson wars knees is that he believes that he was completely untouchable by any form of oversaw and that he could conduct any form of krahn and direct criminals to do it on his behalf for zone enrichment. You said the nettie smith was a pretty small time figure despite his imposing physical presence but he was elevated into the big lake so it was jason that with jason appointed him in absolutely roger should needed willing criminals and there would be a number of things that he would need to know about them that they would stick. Staunch today would not turn on him. An offer evidence if he's criminally involvement to the police officers or judicial enquiries royal commissions.

"Hello i'm dan levy hard and a million years ago when i first started learning about creativity and started craving it. I needed a certain permission to choose a different path. So i couldn't help. But marvel at the writing producing and directing of kevin smith who made the movies clerks mallrats chasing amy and dogma. The story behind his first movie clerks is absurd and brave and dumb and inspiring. It was black and white movie because he couldn't afford lighting. He had such an absurdly low budget for it that his broke slacker as had to put it on cobbled together credit cards. He'd never otherwise us and had no way to repay that. One movie subsidized the rest of his artistic career and it looked like a movie. Any of us could have made or been in for that matter later. He helped break out. Ben affleck and matt damon his greatest work in my mind dogma. Both spoofed and celebrated catholicism and it starred his comic hero george carlin the hate for it was so loud and so cruel that he would choose to never get near those particular flames again. If you're kevin smith fan you'll really love this conversation. If you're not a kevin smith fan. I think you might be after this conversation. Because he gave me permission to choose a different path a million years ago and gives it to me again today with the choices he makes and how he explains why it is that he makes them. He's got a new book out. It's colorful it's his story. It's kevin smith secret stash the definitive visual history. It's a different looking book. It's a big book and if you like him. You should get this book. But i want you to get to know him and his story a little bit better. And so let's begin with kevin smith here. Thank you for joining us. What would you say among your early work. The most fulfilling and fun projects you had. I suppose those could be two different questions. A true So filling was probably clerks. 'cause it just keeps paying dividends even today. We just wrapped clerks. Three and clerks. Three is about randall. The guy from the video store Deciding at age fifty after a massive heart attack that he has nothing to leave behind so he wants after years of watching movies. He wants to make a movie himself so they wind up making clerks essentially a black and white movie about working at the convenience store so clerks probably the most billing because it still to this day. Pays the bills in some ways. I don't think not a day has gone by since nineteen ninety three that i haven't said.

This is fractured. <Speech_Female> I think they really blame <Speech_Female> her <Speech_Female> for a a <Speech_Female> lot of what happened. <Speech_Female> And <Speech_Female> a you know. <Speech_Female> It's <SpeakerChange> really tragic <Speech_Male> and horrible. <Speech_Male> Also <Speech_Male> you know she said <Speech_Male> like hey you know. <Speech_Male> He wasn't <Speech_Male> there maybe he went and <Speech_Male> did something else when he went to the pool. <Speech_Male> Got a drink <Speech_Male> got some breakfast. <Speech_Male> You know maybe <Speech_Male> they had a rough night the night before. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I feel like that. There might <Speech_Male> be something like i <Speech_Male> don't know if there's text <Speech_Male> messages. Two <Speech_Male> thousand six you <Speech_Male> now you know. <Speech_Male> Maybe maybe <Speech_Male> maybe have cell <Speech_Male> phone. Maybe they don't.

He's the <Speech_Female> room. Like i don't know if that's <Speech_Female> like on the floor like insulin <Speech_Female> else's room that <Speech_Female> that is <SpeakerChange> really <Speech_Female> red flagged <Speech_Female> honeymoon on <Speech_Female> your honeymoon who sleeps <Speech_Female> outside of their <Speech_Female> room. <SpeakerChange> And where would <Speech_Male> you sleep too. That's <Speech_Male> all. I assume that <Speech_Male> the passed out <Speech_Male> in front of the door <Speech_Male> in like the <Speech_Female> you know <SpeakerChange> whatever which <Speech_Female> might have been the case like <Speech_Female> if you're putting but also <Speech_Female> like you if <Speech_Female> you're a couple in <Speech_Female> international waters with <Speech_Female> a bunch of strangers <Speech_Female> you would stick to. <Speech_Female> I don't care how hard you're <Speech_Female> partying. <SpeakerChange> Yeah you'd probably <Speech_Male> stick together. <Speech_Male> You have to <Speech_Male> be there for <Speech_Male> each other. <SpeakerChange> And i don't <Silence> think that's <Speech_Male> should <Speech_Male> really be disputed. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I mean i guess. I <Speech_Male> don't know how independent <Speech_Male> you wanna be <Speech_Male> You gotta <Speech_Male> look out for each other <Speech_Male> because <Speech_Male> you know. <Speech_Male> There's a lot of people a <Speech_Male> lot of stuff going on <Speech_Male> and you <Speech_Male> know i don't know it's all <Speech_Male> the movie taken. I don't <Speech_Male> know it sounds like a lot of house <Speech_Male> movie taken <Speech_Male> and not to say it's always like <Silence> that but <Speech_Male> things <Speech_Male> happen on cruise <Speech_Male> ships <Speech_Male> all <Speech_Male> the time. I mean that's just <Speech_Male> the <Speech_Male> you'd be hard pressed <Speech_Male> the find a <Speech_Male> stretch of time where that doesn't <Speech_Male> happen. Yeah <Speech_Male> absolutely <Speech_Male> and i just very <Speech_Male> curious the fact that she got <Speech_Male> married. <Speech_Male> I mean messages got. <Silence> I think she's like well <Speech_Male> time <Speech_Male> for. I don't know the next <Speech_Male> cruise or something like <Speech_Male> that.

"Smith Show News Talk. 7 60 W Jr. I've said it before I'll say it again. We? We try to stay out of the political influence on a medical situation. I've never experienced anything like it before. What's happened with covid, um and continues to happen. But we go to experts. We go to doctors. We go to our family Doctor, in a sense, although Dr Matthew Sims and I don't think we've ever met face to face, he's kind of like a family doctor for the program. He's the head of infectious disease research at Beaumont Hospital and Royal Oak. He's not running for anything, and I pretty much think you've promised us you have no interest in running for political office any time soon. Doctor Sims welcome back to the Paul W. Smith show. Thanks for having me again. And you have I have no interest in running for any kind of political office. You're right about that. Good. Hey, look who can blame the average American for being confused. We were told no masks what I was saying masks are a good idea, and I still believe it. We were told no masks. Then we were told masks and then where and when we should or shouldn't use him. We were then told boosters and then no booster and I can't help but Wonder if the influence of the worthless health organization also known as the World Health Organization, telling us that we as ugly Americans have no right to do what we think is best for Americans. When there were people in other countries around the world who haven't had access to the vaccine. How dare we take any necessary steps that they were necessary steps to further protect Americans now? So now that we have people stepping forward and saying that so fast with the booster, I don't think it's a good idea. I can't help to believe they might be influenced but by what the worthless health organization said, and maybe feeling a little guilty, God knows Americans have plenty of guilt. Uh, but I want to know what you say Dr Simms about a booster or not a booster now. Yeah. So you bring up a lot of very good point has made their their position on this very clear. They want to vaccinate the world and I don't disagree with that. They're right. We need to vaccinate the world because If we don't vaccinate an area, the spread will continue. Their new variants will emerge from there that may not the vaccines may not work as well on that spread faster that attack the unvaccinated population pastor that may attack the vaccinated population we have to control. This is a worldwide pandemic. We do have to control it across the world. Now, Here's the thing. They've made the argument that it's more important to vaccinate adults everywhere else, then kill kids in America, or it's more important to vaccinate people everywhere else then to give booster shots, So they did caveat it to say the people who don't respond well and might need a booster shot like immunized oppressed. They're okay with that. Now I get it. There. What they want to do is right. But to say, you know America don't do any. Don't protect your Children don't give booster shots if you think they're necessary. And just give it give the whole supply to the rest of the world. You know? I mean, I think it's a little um, you know, demanding of that America carry this instead of the entire world Carry this number one Um and America has donated a tremendous amount of vaccine to the rest of the world. Already the entire supply of AstraZeneca that America bought. They gave to the rest of the world where two proved because it hasn't been approved here yet and and more that's not always given I don't see the difficult Well, I mean, the problem is, you know we should be able to do both. They just need enough of the vaccine supply, and the companies are pumping it out as fast as they can. You know if there's Um, you know, there's there's more to this. The question really becomes do we need the booster now? And this article that came out in the Lancet that everybody started talking about the reason people where people are saying no booster yet? Well, they suggest that no, we don't need it now. Because the vaccines are working just fine. Now our numbers are going up in indexing nated people, So I don't know that we need the booster yet, Or do we need a Delta specific booster, which I've been arguing for for quite a while. Uh, you know where they've changed the sequence of the M one a little bit so that it gives you better immunity to Delta Specifically, um and I think over, you know, as variants emerged, that's the kind of thing we're going to need. But you know, it's I think that it's difficult to turn and say America don't vaccinate your kids and don't give boosters because we want it for the rest of the world. The other thing to consider is in some parts of the rest of the world. The infrastructure isn't there yet to give them some of these vaccines that we have access to go bad to the third world where there's no fruit, you know freezers to keep it. In fact where you don't have the people to go out and give the vaccine. Um that's you know another issue to consider that people seem to be ignoring Look, um this is just too obvious to me. It's the do gooders the field gooders Who say no, no, We've got to take care of the world. Let me tell you something. I wonder how they feel when when we point out the fact here. The fact is vaccinating. The world is happily self serving for us. Let's be realistic here. We're doing it so they don't hurt us more. So you're saying that we're doing something to help Americans in America? Time kick cannot be looked at as bad. Yeah, well, you know, it was interesting. Somebody I was talking to suggested that this is like when you're in a play, And then they tell you that if the oxygen mask go down, put your own oxygen mask on before you help somebody else, right? Hmm. That's a good analogy. You know, I agree. Adults are much more likely to get symptomatic disease and kids are But kids can are getting with Delta. Especially kids are getting sick. Um, and they act as a way to spread the disease. Um so You know, speaking as a parent, I'm happy that my oldest daughter has already been vaccinated and this waiting for the time they approve it for my youngest daughter, and I hope it's before she hits her 12th birthday, and she gets the approved age. Hmm. Well, I appreciate what you're saying. My only question I would have in this is for another conversation over a cigar and a scotch And I don't know if you smoke cigars or drink Scotch, but, uh, Scotch, But I do that to go. Okay? Of course not Your doctor. Anyway, Uh, making a Delta specific only makes me worried because that Latin alphabet is being used and there are other variants and then you'll have to have a specific for the next alphabet. Uh, you're right. I think that but I think that whenever you get a variant that seems to get through the vaccine, That's the indication that you need of that variance specific, so we didn't need it for Alpha. We didn't need it for beta. We didn't need it for gamma, but it looks like we might need it for Delta. But it's confusing because we have three things at play it once we have Delta going away. I'm afraid we have to go. So summit up. Sum it up, Doc. We're out of time. Real quick. Oh, sorry. Oh, and the third thing is, we may have waning immunity. Dr Matthew Simmons. Important we don't know I keep you on forever, but it's not up to me. Dr. Matthew Sims of Beaumont Hospital Roilo..

"Smith Show News Talk 7 60 W. Jr. It was planned to happen this way by the current administration, and it is happening this way. As we head into America's Independence Day. We are going to make ourselves independent of Afghanistan as American troops pulled out of their main military base while we were sleeping. Leaving behind a piece of the World Trade Center they buried 20 years ago. And there's obviously plenty of room for conversation and for opinion and for the facts, we go to Simon Owen Fox News correspondent in WJR contributor. Good Morning, Simon. Good morning, Paul. This is a big deal. It's our longest war. Who would have ever guessed That's what Afghanistan would turn out to be. But it is and all American soldiers and members of NATO forces Have left the Bagram airbase. Maybe we should have had a clue 20 years ago when we took over old Russian facilities because they fought the war before us. Well, precisely, And that's part of the heavy symbolism that comes with this moment of of us troops. Pulling out of Bagram is the echoes of history. It's exactly as you say it was a Soviet base in the US inherited and that one didn't work out. That invasion did not work out well, either, as you say, 20 years. I mean, it's a dreadfully long time and there are people who are going to argue this in both directions that it's as far as President Biden is concerned, he says. This is time to go. There's only so you can only give a mission so long, and he reckons that nearly two decades is enough. On the other hand, there are plenty of people who look at the security situation in Afghanistan today, which is a country seemingly on the brink of chaos. And feel that it's not the right time to be leaving. But either way, you know this is why you get elected president is to make the big decisions, and the president took this call earlier this year that it was time to go to the U. S would pull out and over the past few days. We've had a steady stream of pretty low key announcements from European allies. The countries that went off to Afghanistan with the United States after 9 11 fought and died alongside American troops, and the Europeans have steadily been saying over the course of this week. Yet we are now completely out of Afghanistan to and then in the past few hours, we got word that it's not just the Europeans and that with the US, leaving Bagram Which you know this air base that was so long, the epicenter of American military power in Afghanistan. This looks to be a very strong indication that the U. S mission is all but over. And when President Biden announced this withdrawal, he said it would be done by September. 11th. It looks like it could instead be complete by July 4th. I thought that that they had kind of tweak that to try to remember the July 4th state coming up in the The symbolism I thought they were going for when they did this, But you're right. The original, uh, I thought it was president Did you say President Trump said September or It was feidin. No, This is very much part of the groundwork was kind of laid by President Trump, who struck a deal with the Taliban that U. S forces will be gone by what it was going to be. May 2021, Then president Biden took over. There was plenty of reasons to be suspicious of the Taliban were not keeping to their side of the peace deal. But either way, he largely stuck to it. He just pushed it back by a few months. You know, it's a huge Operation to get all of the gear that the US has in Afghanistan just to get it out does take time. But no, you're right. I mean, two dates with heavy symbolism of their own, You know? Firstly, the goal was 9 11. That would be 20 years following the attacks that started the war, But now it looks like it could be done by Independence Day. All of that is very unofficial, though. I think we're waiting for For an announcement. But I do think it could be any time in the next few days that the U. S. Says. We're had a schedule and we're done. Simon Owen Fox news correspondent in WJR contributor. Got to tell you, Simon and all these stories that you and I have covered over the years. It's never good. When the bad guys thank you for leaving and the Taliban, actually, thanks them for leaving. I mean, that's not a good sign. Well, I mean, one of the Taliban central issues and complaints. You know, this is not a group like Al Qaeda, which focuses on plotting attacks against the West or or which has a big aspect of trying to attack Western interest. The Taliban has been much more locally focused, but it despises the idea of any kind of foreign presence, particularly Western presence in Afghanistan, So it is sort and sort this date. And it pledged to the Trump administration that if U S forces were to leave, it would not allow Afghanistan to become a terrorist haven once again the problem with that is, it's not a militant group that you can trust, necessarily. And looking at Afghanistan at the moment. I think there is this sort of two principal concerns because the Taliban has intensified attacks on Afghan security forces in recent months. And these are the security forces that have been trained equipped, supported by the U. S and its allies are now going to have to stand on their own. The Taliban has intensified attacks in recent months. It has recaptured districts all over the country..
