"He's definitely in the top three. It was ministration who thinks worse him Miller. It's kind of weird. The Way I've been thinking about recently trump's obviously like a mascot. This administration doesn't actually decide anything or doing anything. Like jerk Kushner's like the president of Foreign Policy Stephen Miller is like the president of domestic. And they both just do whatever they want. Right cushioned running around pretending to get mid East peace deals. Yeah mean. I feel very interchangeable to me Kushner Stephen Miller. You know what? I mean like I I can easily get them mixed up in my head they seem like the same type of. Just. Just the worst the same type of the worst. I mean I have my my one of my. Theories of others who I deeply believed that Kushner hand and getting Kashogi killed and at. I think. Miller's malevolent like he takes pleasure in other people's pain. We think is just trying to get some sweet deals because he really underwater stupid office building a Fifth Avenue ISAKA. Well. Speaking of underwater on fifth. Avenue Yet more scandalous information has come out about Donald Trump and his finances right mark when she take us through some of that. So the time and other series about trump's finances today basically big takeaways are that his lenders including Deutsche bag forgave two hundred, ninety million dollars in debt for some reason. Two of those, a hedge funds on a lot of his debt had officials. Steve Mnuchin was one of them. See Them Steven Feinberg another in both of them got White House jobs of course. MNUCHIN is treasury secretary. Deutsche Bank they done this called a few times Deutsche a bunch of different arms and trump let alone come do from one part of Deutsche and another part of Joyce will loan him money to pay back that loan they've been doing that moving money around for like a decade doesn't make any sense. Although Deutsche's. One of my biggest money laundering institutions in the world you can Luger no one knows where the money's GonNa keep them afloat. But. Anyway. So toys. Released the cat. One of his final loans may still owed the mud twenty, four, million on November ninth two, thousand, sixteen the day after he won the election probably coincidence, right? Right. Well. So okay to be clear because you're not a on money dumb I grew up poor poor white trash everything. I know bright but you just put your smart though so. To be clear here you're saying you're outlining all these different things and you're like, yeah, it makes no sense it makes any sense at all but. The idea is it makes no sense if you don't take into account like the under the table. Reciprocating for these moves, right? Is that what this? What we're saying like they released the collateral after he won the election because now he's the president which means they can you know? have historians pulled by them and he can do something for them. Now when he couldn't have before like is that how is that how this all that kind of makes sense is it's about the power and the influence of why they do this type of shit or are there other light?.

"This is a piece of software that you can use. It is used by Miocene quite frequently when we are looking for interview subjects and trying to track people down to talk to about, let's say true crime story or something in you need to get somebody's email or their phone number or know where they're located. She's by journalists mostly investigative like investigative journalists and private investigators in law enforcement. This kind of thing that those are the people that use this. There are several images of results from instant checkmate of very powerful people. So this is a paid for service that you have to. You have to pay to actually use it and search for people, and you have to pay extra to get certain levels of information. Whoever created these images has been paying for it and got a lot of people like Steven Feinberg. Daniel Kowalski or Dan. Kowalski. David Malpass and even Peter Navarro even the sitting president it has it has personal contact information like all that you could ever want. On these people, I have not independently verified whether any of this information is correct or to date or accurate in any way but some of it appears to be some of the addresses are accurate for sure. So it. It is a really freaky thing to just see all of that feels like something you shouldn't be looking at and. A kind of scared that it's on my computer now. Maybe you would be too but I don't know I don't know how you'd feel about it or that it might look back at you.

You'll see the what's on the page or what's in the page source doesn't always match what the pages called Ray yeah, and and also like some of the stuff does appear to be you know copy pasta kind of I guess from deficient documents like that. They're clearly reports in internal. You know things like that that manual for. The you know police equipment but some of it is also just complete non sequitur weirdness. There's when I just found from the SITEMAP that I couldn't even find through the actual front page that the heading is devil worshipping pedophile than the text is erections from because from because Microsoft about for pornographic with from four to because one Microsoft from newspapers, One Wall Street Journal with homosexual and another Washington DC on the one with.

"The only thing we said was that we saw no evidence of tampering with the votes. As the briefing concluded James. Komai director of the FBI spoke with trump alone. There was another matter to disclose. A dossier compiled by the former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele which discussed Russia's entanglements with trump's campaign and the candidate himself. Many of these claims were never substantiated or relator disproved outright. Fusion GPS, the research firm that was involved in producing the dossier had confidentially organized briefings on steals findings for a handful of reporters. But when buzzfeed published the dossier four days after combs briefing, the president-elect blamed intelligence officials. Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to leak out into the public he tweeted the following morning. One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi? Germany. Clapper spoke with trump that afternoon and defended the intelligence community. Trump did not apologize. And he instead ask clapper to release a statement refuting the dossiers claims. Clapper declined to do so. Trump's stability was not purely a matter of self interest. As a candidate, he often railed against the foreign policies of his predecessors, Democrat and Republican alike in particular the Iraq war, a debacle that was inseparable from the failures of the intelligence community. After it was reported in December. Two Thousand Sixteen that the CIA had concluded that Russia interfered with the two thousand sixteen election on trump's behalf. His transition team released a press statement declaring these are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. Once trump was in the White House, a former trump administration official recalls. I cannot tell you how many times he randomly raised the Iraq war like it morally offended him. He. Loved the intelligence community purposely made it all up. But the gross intelligence failures in the run up to the Iraq war offered a subtler cautionary tale to. The Bush administration had a tendency to see only what it wished to see if that intelligence. To contorted mischaracterize semi educated guesses as unassailable facts. A tendency that in trump was compulsive twin, nearly pathological degree. As, one intelligence veteran who occasionally briefed trump told me. On a visceral level, his view was you all are supposed to be helping me. At, when you bring evidence that Russia interfered, that's what he'd referred to as not helpful or when he's wanting to turn the screws on NATO we'd come in with a warning of the consequences of NATO falling apart and he'd say you never do things for me. Historically the CIA has learned to accommodate the individual presidents it serves the will always with the tacit understanding that the first customer would not abuse the courtesy. Bill Clinton's famously fluids schedule made it difficult for him to commit to daily one on one briefings when a man in a stolen Cessna one fifty plane crashed it into the South Lawn of the White House in Nineteen ninety-four the more joke around the CIA was that it was the agency's director Jim Woolsey trying to get a meeting with the president. Still. Clinton read his briefing material. George W Bush whose father had been CIA director faithfully took his briefing six mornings a week. Though it famously did not result in his heating the August two thousand, one briefing titled Bin Laden Determined To Strike in. US. Obama to took daily briefings for most of his Presidency Lisa Monaco his homeland security adviser earned the presidential nicknamed Doctor Doom for her grim counter-terrorism updates. The briefings were a ritual through which the intelligence community implicitly made the case for itself as something that transcended partisanship and operated on a timescale beyond mere presidencies. It was inevitable that some adjustments would prove necessary for trump novices he was to government. The new president's interests were primarily economic a field that was never the intelligence community strong suit. Under, trump intelligence officials learned to up our economy briefings game as one of them told me. But. The culture clash posed more serious problems to. Trump was accustomed to cutting deals and sharing gossip on his private cellphone often loudly enjoyed being around billionaires to whom he would show off about some of the stuff he thought was cool. The capabilities of different weapons systems one former ministration official recalled. These were super rich guys who wouldn't give him the time of day before he became president, he'd used that stuff is currency he had that they didn't not understanding the implications. Trump also stalked his president's intelligence advisory board with wealthy business people who when briefed by one intelligence official would sometimes make you uncomfortable because on occasion their questions were related to their business dealings this individual recalled. The Chairman of the Advisory Board Steven Feinberg is CO chief executive of CERBERUS capital management, which owns DynCorp. A major defense contractor that is one several lucrative military contracts. Feinberg was a friend of the president's son-in-law. Jared. Kushner, whose expansive role in the new administration also created unease within the intelligence community. His attitude, one former intelligence official recalled, of Kushner, is like that of his father-in-law who always thought that people who weren't trying to be wealthy but instead went into public service or lesser. There were obvious security issues that seem not to have occurred to Kushner who would have the Chinese ambassador and his minions wandering around the West Wing Court recalled one former senior administration official the White House disputes this. No foreign nationals are allowed to roam freely in the West Wing mcenaney said in a statement. Early in the administration, Kushner in an age showed up to Langley headquarters conspicuous in their fitted suits from meeting to learn how the CIA functions. The agency accommodated them, but afterward, according to one participant in the meeting concern developed within the agency about Kushner's potential conflicts. His complicated international business interests as well as his evolving friendship with Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman of Saudi Arabia. had. Raised serious concerns among officials responsible for awarding security credentials. A further concern, another former senior intelligence officials said. was just his cavalier arrogant attitude that I know what I'm doing without any cultural understanding of why things are classified that would put our intelligence at risk. Trump publicly claimed to know little about Kushner, security clearance problem. But in fact, the president made a huge deal of it and tried to pull all sorts of strings and go around the system on former official recalled. Another former officials said I'd hear the president say just do it just give it to him. I'm not understood what it actually meant. He made it sound like jared was just trying to join a club. Some of trump's intelligence advisors feared that his carelessness would inevitably get him in trouble when dealing one on one with cannier foreign leaders. When you'RE A president any slip can be used. For National Security, aide said. Because of trump's indiscretion one former senior intelligence official told me the intelligence office of at least one foreign country. A NATO ally that sent troops to Afghanistan was discouraged by that country's president from interacting with its American counterparts. For fear that trump would be briefed on the information and subsequently blurted out to the Russians. The president did precisely that for months into his tenure sharing sensitive intelligence about. With the Russian foreign, minister and ambassador during a meeting in the Oval Office reportedly exposing a source.

"Hi, I'm Daniel and I'm more and we're here to tell you all about our brand new podcast, Daniel and hor, hey, explained that universe in this podcast gonna talk about a lot of things mostly about physics and the universe, and all those big mysteries scientists. A lot of things left to figure out even pretty basic stuff like what is space? What is time? What is stuff made out of which movie gets time travel, right? That's an important question scientists folks. Are we alone in the universe? What is a black hole anyway with inside a black hole. That's what this is about. It's mostly me and hor horrific on stuff. We bind fun and fascinating and hilarious to look for Daniel and hor, hey, explained the universe. We'll try to cover just about everything in the everything. Every dollar shebang. The whole shebang from cats do planets, two black holes and tiny particles. And we're back. Those are some great ads, quality products services also pretty good anyway, let's get back to Eric prints. So yeah, we last left, Eric prince. He's talking about turning Afghantistan into a rare minerals company that he runs violence against the Afghan people. So that's fun. He's not the only guy MDC who shopping around this idea. Steven Feinberg who runs Cerberus capital, and also the military contractor DynCorp has been pushing similar plan around. Washington Feinberg is a close friend of President Trump. He was almost given a position overseeing an Intelligence Review this year. But the Intel community recoiled because he has no background in Intel or military looking, here's a know anything or Rousson fucking was other when Dino DynCorp DynCorp is one of the military contractors that doesn't commit rampant war-crimes water. Sure they've got in their history, but they're more respectable than blackwater. Right? Which is a low bar, the Ferber, something like that evokes really service capital sends like you're the good guys. Exactly. We're fucking mythical. Dog monster. Yeah, I do want appraise Eric on something real quickly, which is his his Accu men for this. He's the perfect man to take advantage of this time in Republican politics, and my evidence for that is one of the slides in this docket he put together which, again is a slide show that's made for President Trump in the slide show he bills. The privatization of the war in Afghanistan is quote the Wollman ice rink moment of the Trump administration at the name of one of the slides. The woman ice rink moment and the Trump administration. You have any idea what that's reference to know, but it's priceless. I'm very critical. I guarantee you, this is one of the only things I could reference that President Trump would know about and you would not. And that's because back in like the nineteen eighties, the Wollman ice rink in New York City stopped making ice or in the seventy. I guess in nineteen eighty, the New York parks department started working to change that they spent like six years and thirteen million dollars trying to fix this ice rink and basically had to announce that point that they were going to have to start all over again. And so it was like this big famous story of government competence, right? Right. They spent millions of dollars. They can't get this ice rink going. So Trump starts publicly saying that he can do the job like under budget and in less time than anybody else. And everybody assumes full of shit, but he gets the job and he actually does it under budget for three million bucks in like a quarter of the time. Like one fucking time. He did the thing that he said he, he, he did the thing. He got the ice rink working again. It made ice or heated. I mean, he hired the people who did it, but let me say made is like they just couldn't keep the rink at the temperature to I don't know the well whatever. But yeah, this is like one failed to actually have ice on the right? Yeah, which is important for night? Yeah, then you have a roller ring. So he managed the project that got it fixed and he did it under budget in in any way. It's a thing Trump talks talked about often on the campaign trail when he was running for president, Kansas. He's, he's smart, right? No. He's saying that, yeah, he's saying that Afghantistan is like that ice rink back in the nineteen eighties. One government is just not enough to fix it. So he knows how to sell this plan to Donald Trump. Right. And I suspect he'll be successful eventually. I mean, based on everything, we read all the time in the news. It just seems like every day or every story that comes out. We inch closer and closer privatization of that war. Yeah, which is not the right plant just leave. Yeah, just admit it was a stupid idea, right? Get the fuck out, right? Say you're sorry. Offer the government, some aid, removing all the bombs we drop exactly like you just get the fuck out, but that's, I think we're probably going to go with x. plan. So let's get back into the book. This was a long digression because he talked about, I didn't realize that when this book was published back in two thousand fourteen, he already had this plan together. So this is clearly been on Eric's mind for reading. I'll take his demo tape that goes around to shows. Yeah, and he has a real gift for spending his career running immersing area empire into personal heroism. In the beginning of his, like in the beginning of his book, he tries to present himself as. A lifetime servant of both his country. And of course, God, he says, since I first enrolled in the naval academy after high school, my life's mission has been to serve God serve my family and serve the United States with honor and integrity. I did it first midshipman finish his seal. Then when personal tragedy called me home from the service as a contractor, providing solutions for some of the thorniest problems on earth, the business of war is never been pretty, but I did my job legally and I did it completely to well. Perhaps go growing blackwater until it became something resembling its own branch of the military and other government agencies. It's like winking fulltime legally. So we're going to have another digression now because I couldn't let the sentence to well perhaps to well, yeah. Okay. So I was worried when I started doing this because I was like, we talked about a lot of black waters, horrible negligence in the deaths associated with last episode. And I was like, I'm not going to be able to find more examples of that for this episode of their repeating myself turns out it just took about a second on Google because I just typed in a couple of key phrases and I found a two thousand five Washington Post article about. About a plane. Crash of a crash of a plane in Afghanistan piloted by a firm that was a part of blackwater. One of prince's aviation firms killing all six on board. So the first army report which was released. Two weeks later said that the plane which, again is essentially a blackwater plane was in violation of numerous government regulations and contract requirements. So basically they were breaking a bunch of rules now presidential Airways, which is the company that prints owned under one of these big umbrella things. Right? You got all these fucking. But anyway, presidential Airways was essentially accused of pairing pilots and co pilots who both didn't have any experience flying in Afghanistan and then not training them properly for flying in Afghanistan and then not supplying them with communications equipment that they needed to properly fly in Afghanistan so to their guys. And I think four US soldiers got killed in this crash. And so the family sued Eric prints and Eric prince get sued by families quite a lot. It's it's my middle name air getting sued by family families. You're, you're almost always the bad guy if whole families. There's also when you're negligence. Is that like acutely criminal? Yeah. So an attorney for the families accused them of presidential Airways of cutting corners. If they're going out source to corporation services, like flying personnel, right Afghanistan, they must do it with corporations that put the safety of our men and women in uniform ahead of corporate profits. Sadly, that wasn't done here seems like a reasonable statement. Presidential Airways, followed with a common Eric prints tactic calling the army lazy and incompetent. When of prince's Representative said in essence, that the army review that made them look at fault had been slapdash and was filled with errors. Everyone would need to wait until the national Safety Board report came out to really know what had gone wrong. And if presidential Airways had done anything wrong. So now I'm going to read a fun related excerpt from Jeremy scales book blackwater in two thousand six nearly two years after the army investigators conclude. The report, the National Transportation Safety board issued a report of its own. The ESP concluded that black waters pilots were quote behaving unprofessionally, and we're deliberately flying the nonstandard route low through the valley for fun. Oh. Oh, fucking party getting that. Yeah, it's all it's a safe. They just dumb fucking party boys getting people killed. I, I guess that is the one consistent. Like with the culture of that company, it's like, yeah, and also just fuck around whatever you want. Doesn't matter. It's guys who got frustrated all the rules. The army has some of what you're dumb. You talked to anyone who served in the army, and they'll be able to point out dumb things the army makes you do. But also part of the reason the army has so many dumb rules so that people don't go joyriding plains, valleys and kill six expensive hardware. In what? What's it? A background of a lot of guys who ended up in black water, they retired or they'd like discharge, like they're usually on people who got honorably discharged. I mean, it's people who a lot of people who were in special forces and then we're like, I want to get paid, which, oh, then they kind of leave. Yeah. Yeah. Like there's a better, right? So, but it's usually people who are like seeing the checks, they're cutting over there because they'll have a buddy who was with service and then got out a year to go. And then he's like, I made three hundred thousand dollars in Iraq lies. We're doing the same shit, right? I can. We play this game with this fucking plane. On the plane bottle on his head, and we'd try and just knock it off in a valley. Some guys died last we, it's still fun. Whatever did they didn't? Yeah. As you might have noticed from earlier on prince has a real bug up his ass about blackwater not getting what he's seen as would he sees as the proper recognition that it's owed. He had a statement in his book that I found kind of funny government agencies don't want that spotlight being shown on our work nor to applaud the greatest advantage. Blackwater offered them increased capability. They only want wanted increase deniability, which is funny because that's the only reason why his company couldn't be fired from the war is because they needed denial asset, right? Yeah. Anyway, that Eric prince doesn't like being deniable asset and never not been in the business of providing them, right. He's yeah, that must frustrate him when he wants to be the star and he's like, I'm made to be the scapegoat man. That's what you're doing. That's your job exactly. Your job is getting provide the soldiers that the government doesn't have to report to anyone raid and you're wasting life and money. That's your whole the whole reason. You're a billionaire. Other than the fact that you dad was right? Yeah, that wanted to being a billionaire. Step one to being a billionaire. Rich dad is the first time. Yeah, no move onto z. or you DiPoto. Yeah, where you die for because you don't have enough. You can't afford insulin. Cute price events lows Oregon trail. You broke your leg and your diet and you died, but aarc prince gets a navy right? Fun world, fun fun world. So print says, in his book quote, the true history of blackwater is exhilarating, rewarding, exasperatingly, and tragic. Don't disagree with that. It's the story of men taking bullets to protect
