Joe Biden's Unending Stream of Lies
"In the beginning of February, Joe Biden spoke before the assembled representatives of our government, regarding the current state of our union. The speech bears many similarities to the State of the Union Biden gave last year. And not in just topics, but also in the unending stream of lies our White House resident insists on peppering us with, with his every utterance, according to Biden, the deficit has been reduced, inflation is down, and jobs are growing at record rates. If this was even remotely true, Americans would be having a collective sigh of relief. Most people are grappling with these major problems on a daily basis. Biden also believes that granting citizenship to illegals will somehow solve the border crisis that pro life beliefs and laws are extremist, that it was COVID and not defund the police that is causing nationwide crime waves. And that the protesters martyred by police at the U.S. capitol represented the greatest threat to democracy since the Civil War. This second series of claims occupy that characteristically Biden esque sweet spot between utter stupidity and self serving political fable. He's either really that dumb or he thinks his audience is.

Why America's Navy Is No Longer Best in the Sea
"Back in America, as I said the most important thing. Not just to the Hugh Hewitt show audience, but to the world is that the communist Chinese party had Xi Jinping. The strong man, the totalitarian ruler of all of China, head of the Chinese Communist Party has been in Moscow for two days, meeting whether he calls his junior partner Putin, it reminds you of Hitler and Mussolini, if you know your history in 39 getting together, that's why I asked doctor Hendricks to come on today, Jerry Hendricks will be on an hour three to discuss his brand new essay in the Atlantic, which is really caught the attention of Washington D.C.. Because the Atlantic is the last magazine that many people read in America in hardcover copy form. And the title of the article is the age of American naval dominance is over. The subheading is the United States has seated the oceans to its enemies. We can no longer take freedom of the seas for granted. And this is sort of something I talk about a lot for the last, I don't know, ten years. When Donald Trump was running and promising a 355 ship navy, that didn't come about the biggest failure of the Trump years was the failure to get the shipyards expanded up and running, getting a navy plan. And the key facts that I'll be talking about with doctor hendrickson an hour three is that the United States had 6700 chips at sea at the end of World War II. By the end of Eisenhower administration, we were down to a thousand, which is consistent with the Cold War, and then it fell and fell and fell until regular arrived and rebuilt the navy to 590 ships that had the deterrent effect on the Soviet Union. It fell apart. And then in our wisdom, we thought the end of history had arrived and we are now at 271 ships afloat. And doctor Hendricks says, the complications of that, the implications of that are so profound that people don't even see the obvious in front of them. So I'm

"Los Angeles schools will close as district workers plan to strike. I'm Lisa dwyer. Thousands of support workers in the Los Angeles unified school district will walk up the job Tuesday over stalled contract talks. They will be joined by teachers for a planned three day strike that will shut down the nation's second largest school system.

"Anyway, bottom line reparations. I got a quick question for you. How many people died in Civil War on the union? Oh, wow. Yeah, lots. That ever happened in any other scenario where there's been slavery? And the other side of it is, you know, I think the United States is a pretty great country. And yeah, sure, we're human. Nobody ever says that we're not human. But I got a little something to be said as well. I think slavery is worse today than it was back then. Not in this country, but across the world, so if you're really worried about slavery, let's have a kind of maybe the worldwide opinion and get rid of it all together. I'm totally in for that. I have good friends that are black. I have, you know, I'm pretty, pretty, very here. But reparations know, I think black people have a very good if they wanted to have a very good life in the United States.

Dinesh Exposes the IRS As a Rip-Off Operation
"Recently, the GOP led House of Representatives repealed a congressional provision allocating almost $80 billion to the IRS to over ten years, hire a whole bunch of new agents and the House Republicans said, listen, you don't need the money. You're going to just use this money to badger harass and rip off the taxpayer. And I want to focus on a particular case that seems to show the IRS doing exactly that. I know about the case only because it wound its way up to the Supreme Court. And the Supreme Court basically weighed in and slapped down the IRS for imposing really a ridiculously excessive penalty on a guy for not reporting his foreign bank accounts. Now, here's what let's go into the story a little bit because the guy, his name is alexandru, bittner. He was born in communist Romania. He moved to the United States when he was a young guy. But then when the Soviet Union collapsed, he moved back to Romania from 1990 to 2011, so he lived in post Soviet in the post Soviet bloc for about 20 years. Now he was a really successful guy. He had a bunch of businesses, and he opened up a whole bunch of foreign bank accounts. Then later he moves back to the United States and he discovers that he is required as someone who has these foreign bank accounts simply the file a report. With the IRS noting that he has these bank accounts. He says I didn't even know I was supposed to do that, but he hired an attorney and the attorney said, I'll prepare the documents for you. And so he filed them. Now the IRS basically said that this guy did not file these timely reports. For 5 years, 2007 to 2011. Again, reports that you didn't know he needed to file. And so the IRS decides to fine him. Now, the correct amount to find him because apparently there were 5 years and he didn't file a report for 5 years, is $10,000 per year. So the amount that they could find. And remember, when you don't know there's a law, it doesn't excuse you from having to follow the law. You still have to do it. And so the IRS should have probably fine this guy $50,000, which was a small fraction of the total amount of money in those accounts. He could easily have paid it. But the IRS decided not to do that. They decided that for each account that he didn't file a report, it's a separate violation. And it needs to have a $10,000 fine attached not to each report, not each annual report, but to each particular account and because this guy had a whole bunch of accounts, it turns out that the IRS stuck him with a penalty, let me look for the actual number here. It was a penalty of $2.72 million.

How Government Uses Anti-Terrorism Tools Against Us With Mike Benz
"Let me just share with you a comment that kind of shocked me that a very sober individual, one of the few, truly dedicated investigative journalists made on my radio show. Maybe about a year ago, and that man is John Solomon, a dogged investigative reporter who's worked for, you name it, AP Reuters, Washington Post, you name it. This is a good guy who actually still believes in journalism created his own company called Justin news dot com. And with regards to the Russia collusion hoax, that he reported on admirably in the afterwards was smeared by the mainstream media. He said the following to me on my show, he said, the tools of Cold War propaganda that had been used to target the Soviet Union are enemies, have in recent years been turned inward against U.S. citizens. I mean, that's a stunning statement to say, how do you react to John Solomon's commentary? The only addition I would make is to say before it was turned inward, it was given several shots of steroids to make it bigger, better and meaner than it ever was. You see, what happened was in the analog age, we had a Cold War propaganda apparatus that was also married to official government propaganda organs. We had a U.S. information agency. And at the time, in the Cold War, there really was no press by and for the people in the pure sense that it would come to be in the digital age. All of the traditional legacy media institutions that were popular during the Cold War were offshoots early offshoots of the office of war information, really from 1942 until the Eisenhower era, you had basically all of the means of mass communication you had, you know, since the invention of the printing press, you had newspapers, but the new also had the telegraph in the 1800s. You had wireless communications in the 1900s, TV in Hollywood, all of those modalities of mass communications were all rolled into the World War II effort through OWI, the office of war information, and remember Fox News didn't come along until the 1990s. CBS NBC and ABC were all run by former OWI guys. There was always a back channel. So the office, let's just repeat that in case people missed it. The handful of media organs we had until the explosion of cable news and the Internet. The handful of news platforms America had were being run by people who had been involved with the office of war information, correct? Correct.

California court rules for Uber, Lyft in ride-hailing case
"A California court has ruled in favor of a law that allows app based ride hail and delivery companies to treat drivers as independent contractors. A California appeals court has ruled that companies like Uber Lyft and DoorDash do not have to treat their drivers as employees with benefits like paid sick leave bypassing a 2019 state law in a defeat for labor unions and their allies in Sacramento. In 2020, California voters endorsed the exemption by passing ballot proposition 22, which does include some benefits like a guaranteed minimum wage and subsidies for health insurance. Monday's ruling reverses a lower court that had said prop 22 was illegal. Tony West, Uber's chief legal officer, says we're pleased the court respected the will of the people, Mike Robinson, one of the drivers who filed the challenge to prop 22, says it's not a total defeat since the court ruled the company's couldn't stop their drivers from collective bargaining to get better working conditions.

Cheryl Chumley: Why Is California Entering the Reparations Game?
"Memphis area where I am from and our show originates, they are actually using COVID money to the tune of $5 billion to actually study a reparations plan that would put cash into the hands of black citizens, but it pales in comparison to what's happening in California right now. It does California really has seized the day on this one. They're considering $640 billion a package for reparations, which would amount to about 360,000 dollars per eligible black resident in the state. And what's really interesting about California is for those who know their history, California entered the union as a free state. There were discussions in Congress over slavery and finally they signed the California delegate signed the compromise of 1850, guaranteeing that the state would remain a free state. So for California to get into the reparations game, it's a little bit mind boggling. Do we have any idea where they're getting this $640 billion from? Well, you know it's going to be taxpayers. That's not exactly front and center in discussions, but where else are they going to get it? I don't think that a Bill Gates or George Soros type philanthropist is going to come through and supply the money. I'm curious to know if Oprah is going to get her check. Right?

We have a lot of I know we have a large and very diverse audience. We have Christians and atheists we have Jews and gentiles we have people who are conservative people who are liberal people who are straight people who are gay, what I'm curious about, where is where are all the conservative gay folks out there? Why are they not rising up in outrage over this? Where is the gay community at large because right now they are citing with the school board and the school board is doubling down. And they're saying, you know what? We do not want Christians in our public schools. This ladies and gentlemen is the hill to die on. This is the this is the moment where you have to stand up. And you have to fight back. And I'm glad to see people standing up and fighting back, but I am really surprised. By the numbers of people who came out and said, yeah, we don't have a problem with this. We think that's a good idea. Christians have no right to be in public school classrooms. As teachers.

"the union" Discussed on Revolutions
"No amount of legalese in his opinion could cover the obvious reality that Russia was re dawning its imperial mantle. That was not going to go over well here in Ukraine. But Stalin and his allies waited until rakovsky was literally off on a holiday. To have the commission created by the Communist Party to recommend an integration plan, approve the model of a single unitary state, with, of course, mechanisms for internal autonomy. In December 1922, representatives of the four SSR's in question came together to unify politically. And though the other nationalities of the old Russian Empire were not afforded the elevated status of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and the trans caucuses, the treaty those four nominally independent republics were about to sign, fully anticipated more Soviet Socialist republics joining after this initial corps came together. And indeed it would soon grow to encompass 15 such republics by the beginning of World War II. The treaty creating the union of Soviet Socialist republics was approved on December 30th, 1922. And it created a whole new federal government whose primary functions were indeed centralized in Moscow and in practice, very little changed in terms of personnel or policy. Most of the governmental position to the new Soviet Union were assigned by doling out new titles to the leaders of Soviet Russia. So Lenin ceased to be chairman of the council of people's commissars and instead became chairman of the union's council of people's commissars. The only thing that changed is how much more authority he had, and how much of a larger area it extended over. Meanwhile the Russian Communist Party became the all union Communist Party, with again virtually no changes for anyone inside the inner circle of power. So, while Lenin and the Russian communists took great pains to make this all legally a union of co equals, the Russians would always be. Like Augustus, the first among equals. In declaring their new union to the world, the treaty creating the Soviet Union began with a short preamble, which read since the foundation of the Soviet republics, the states of the world have been divided into two camps. The camp of capitalism and the camp of socialism. There in the camp of capitalism, national hate and inequality, colonial slavery and chauvinism, national oppression and massacres, brutalities and imperialistic wars. Here in the camp of socialism, reciprocal confidence and peace, national liberty and equality, the Pacific coexistence and fraternal collaboration of peoples. Which all sounds very nice..

"To other bars can stay open, nail salons can stay open, clubs can stay open, but churches have to remain closed. So religious freedom has now become an ambiguous issue in America, voter integrity. Yeah, there's been voter integrity problems in India for a long time. Now there are voter integrity problems in America. Going after political opponents. That's true in India to some degree. It's now true in America to a large degree. So I think the point here is that America needs to get off its high horse and these times because we're no longer the champions of the free world. We're no longer the champions of a human rights. There's just as much if not more violations of human rights going on right now in this country either in many other places in the world, including India. I want to talk about an illuminating double standard that is going on with Disney that demands a little bit of closer scrutiny. Now, Disney sprang into political activism recently in opposing Florida's Bill, this is a law in Florida signed by governor desantis. It basically says you can't have sexually explicit instruction in schools for very young children. These are children in the first or second or third grade. Yeah, you can have sex education in later grades, but not at this very young age, and the underlying assumption behind the law is that the responsibility for any sexual instruction at all that occurs at that age is with the parents and not with the school. Now, Disney, somewhat oddly moved into the full oppositional mode against this Florida Bill, it's outrageous, and children are being censored from discussing these issues. Now, in reality, they're not children can discuss anything that they want among themselves. We're talking about a prohibition on the administration and the teachers, not a prohibition on the children. But nevertheless, nevertheless, this parent's rights bill in Florida is wrongly depicted as a kind of anti gay Bill. Don't say gay is the big slogan that's being bandied about on the left. But an interesting article has come out that says that Disney was perfectly willing to comply when China demanded that all mention of a gay character be removed from a Harry Potter movie. Hollywood said, okay, no problem. We'll do it. No objection, whatever. No, no big outcry, no Disney using its power to fight back against China, Disney kind of humbly goes along with it. So let's hear the details and I'm picking this up right from one of the Hollywood magazines. It's called variety. References to a gay relationship in fantastic beasts, a secrets of Dumbledore were edited out of the movie by Warner Brothers for the film's release in China. So apparently what happens here is the author J. K. Rowling has revealed a Dumbledore, one of the kind of beloved characters was gay. She reveals this in 2009, but previous earlier Harry Potter movies had made no reference to this at all. Until this fantastic beasts movie came along and in that there's apparently some dialog about a romantic past that is alluded to between Dumbledore, a male character, played by Jude Law, and grindelwald, which is played by this guy named Mads Mikkelsen, and China was like, we're not having it. We don't really want an engaged stuff going on here. Take it out. And so these lines about these two being in love and they fell in love the previous summer, gone, gone from the film. And all that's now implied is that Dumbledore and grindelwald are like good friends. They've just had a, you know, they just had a really close bond for a long time. Now, when asked about this, the Warner Brothers people basically made a statement to a variety, and they said that, you know, we, yo, we made the katsuya, we kind of did a little bit of self censorship, but quote the spirit of the film remains intact. So our main story is okay, so we didn't mind making this kind of an accommodation for the Chinese. And that's what I want to ask about is, which is this. You know, most cultures in the world are traditional. I'm not entirely surprised that the Chinese have these reservations about these kids movies that have all these themes. I think that if you went to traditional people anywhere in the world, they would have the same concerns. What these cultures are trying to do is keep a certain moral and social degeneracy from penetrating their cultures and seeing their culture is going to the kind of freefall that we've seen in the west and in the United States. And but what Disney appears to be doing is saying in effect, listen, we don't mind these effects occurring in our culture here. In fact, we're going to actively promote them. But we're going to go along with the effects with the attempts of other cultures, particularly China and known, notice that China has a giant potential film market. So Disney's motives here are partly commercial. It's like, wow, we stand to make a lot of money in China. So as a result, yeah, we can fight this, but the Chinese may then just get angry and say, listen, no Hollywood movies in China, we're just going to have Chinese made movies and look, we'll contact independent film producers in other countries while happy to conform to our requirements. So Hollywood is behaving itself when it comes to China. And by the way, this isn't just Disney. We see this with the NBA. So we see this with sports franchises, entertainment franchises, all of them are longingly greedily looking to make money in China. And so the Chinese comfortably dictate the terms, the Chinese are in the driver's seat. But here in America, these companies are woke. And they push their work politics in a manner that, as I say, they aren't trying to do in other parts of the world. At least parts of the world that are pushing back. And so that must mean two things. One, it means that Disney is really not afraid that conservative parents, so I'm going to stop going to Disney because if Disney thought that half the country is going to not patronize Disney, stop going to Disneyland, not watch Disney movies, then they would think twice about doing this because that is a big part of their market. So they must not fear the activism of the right. And the second reason is that Disney must think that their economic future has less to do with commanding the lion's share, which they have had of the American market and more to do with commanding a lion's share of the market abroad and specifically in China.

It's a lot to meet cake attitude. And look, the people who aren't eating cake are the ones who are gonna have their say, and I'm gonna have a chance to push back. The Democrats do a lot to bamboozle them, come election time, but this time it may not work. Some of us wish we could rewind the clock when it comes to our health exercising climbing stairs, all the things young people take for grindelwald.

The vast majority of people who try relief factor or to more because it works for them. Debbie loves using really factor when her shoulders started acting up about a year or so ago, this was the only thing that worked for her and she knows if she quits taking it well, the pain's gonna come right back.

Egged on by the media, the Biden administration is unnecessarily antagonizing the Government of India, which has been a close ally of the United States. And the reason for this new campaign of denouncing India is basically because India is not going along with the Biden administration in its position on Ukraine. So Biden has arm twisted a bunch of countries, mostly European countries, but some others also to approve all these sanctions and the sanctions also involve not buying oil from Russia, not doing trade deals with Russia and certainly not buying weapons from Russia. But India has an ongoing weapons deal with Russia. In which the Indians have agreed to purchase S 400 missile defense systems from Russia. And India has been continuing with that transaction, which actually dates back for a couple of years. So it's not something in the newly agreed to do. But the Indians aren't willing to stop doing it. The other thing that the Indians aren't willing to stop doing is follow America's lead and stop buying oil or from Russia. Now let's remember that India and China are perhaps the two well the two largest countries in the world, but they're also two of the fastest growing countries in the world. And they're coming up from the bottom. They're coming up from positions in India's case of really almost scandalous worldwide by worldwide standards, poverty. So the Indians are like, we need the oil. And so since the Russians are one of the biggest oil producers in the world, and India does not have a whole lot of oil, we're going to continue buying it from Russia. So India's motives here are driven by self interest. India isn't even buying weapons from Russia in order to threaten the United States. India's worries have to do with Pakistan and have to do with radical Islam. And so India is trying to fortify its defense in those areas. But because India is not getting on the bandwagon. It's not saluting. It's not playing the game. You got this sudden turn on India and criticism of India and what I find interesting is that the Indians, instead of just taking it, are actually pushing back. Here is the Indian external affairs minister, his name is S ja shankar. And he was at the fourth U.S. India ministerial dialog at the State Department. And instead of just being humble and saying, you know, yeah, you know, what are the guilty party? And of course, that allowed these media reports suddenly popping all the human rights violations in India and so on. So India is being sort of castigated across the board. And this guy basically goes, well, if Americans are concerned about the human rights situation in India, he goes, we Indians are concerned about the human rights situation in America. Take that. So having said that, the Indian administrator kind of backed off a little bit and said, look, you know, the areas we can cooperate with the Americans and the areas we might disagree, but it's all within a framework of that this is a normal way that countries deal with each other. But I thought it'd be interesting to look at what this man is saying because I think part of what he's saying is that at one time America could easily say things like, we have free speech in America. Whereas in India, if you criticize the government, the goons will show up to beat you up. But now that America can say that because we don't have free speech in America and in many respects it's far worse than in India. India, you may not be able to just explicitly criticize the administration, but in a whole bunch of other areas you can discuss topics like climate change, you can discuss all kinds of topics without getting banned, whereas in America you're banned. There are whole subjects that are put out of bounds, including, by the way, the open discussion of the Ukraine war. Religious freedom, at one point, Americans could say, well, you know what? There's all these kind of religious nationalist movements in India. There's a new kind of affirmation of Hindus, movement called Hindu and that is making it more difficult to be a Christian or to be a Muslim in India and there is a lot of truth to that. But the truth is also that in America now religious freedom is imperiled in all kinds of ways, not in parallel by one religion being preferred over another, but in peril by a radical secularism that tries to shut down religious expression, certainly excluded from the public square, and in some cases imposed discriminatory shutdowns that apply to churches,.

Bring it forward so we're like, okay, that's it. We have to redo this media room. Anyway, all that to say that it took a whole year to get the parts for the mechanical parts for the chair so that you could do the up down motion or whatever the mechanics of that chair. They could not get. For a whole year. Another, I mean, this is also, by the way, a self inflicted wound by the Biden administration, because while for them, everything is the result of Ukraine, although many of these problems inflation was soaring before Ukraine. It's gotten worse since then. Gas prices were going up before Ukraine. Right. Or they apply, they seem to imply. Is that nice though, how they always find an excuse for everything? They either blame Trump for it or Ukraine or some other some other thing. It reminds me of my Dante series where everybody in the inferno, none of them ever did it. The envious didn't do it. Someone made them do it. The lustful didn't do it. Love made them do it. So this human very human tendency to avoid responsibility. But I mean, it's a little bit creepy when you have people who have this level of responsibility, not just for society, but to some degree for the world who appear to be so reckless with their use of power. And so indifferent, I mean, we talked in the last segment about Biden's poll ratings going down, I don't get any sense that he is even aware of it or cares. Yeah, I'm aware maybe..

"Debbie and I are talking about the border crisis. And it seems like governor Abbott had sort of well, I don't know if you'd call it an naughty idea or a little bit of an in your face idea. But his idea was, listen, you know, if the Biden administration is importing all these people because they want him in this country, well, maybe they should have to deal with them directly. And so Abbott's idea and apparently the first Texas bus. Put the migrants in the bus. Now you can't force them. So it's the migrants who agree to go. Voluntarily, and the first bus drops them off blocks from the U.S. capitol building. Apparently Fox News found out that this particular bus of migrants came from the Del Rio sector, but there were people in there from Columbia from Cuba from Nicaragua from Venezuela. They apparently had all these wristbands, and so when they got there, the bus driver was like, let's cut off your wristband. You're free to roam the streets of D.C.. So I mean, this is kind of a nightmare. And I think Abbott is only doing what he can do within his limited jurisdiction to say, listen, you want him, you got him. Right. Well, did you hear Jen Psaki talking about it? She acted like, oh yes, it's great. It's a great idea. So I think that they're trying to play a little game here because they're wanting to pretend like it's not like it's a good thing. Even though they know it's bad for them, it looks really horrible. The optics are just awful. And the really funny thing is that this bus Abbott made sure that this bus dropped them off near the media stations like near Fox studios. Here's Abbott. So if they're not going to come to the border, I'm going to take the border to them. He's referring here to the D.C. politicians. Yes. Washington is going to have to respond and deal with the same challenges that we're dealing with. Have a taste of your own medicine. This is the effect of your policies. Now this is probably going to be I'm expecting challenged in court because the federal government is always said, well, you know, it's the federal government that makes immigration policy, not the states themselves. But here's the problem with that, they're not doing anything about it and the states are the ones that are taking in the brunt of it. So we have to, as a Texan, as Texans, we have to pay for this. The federal government is not paying for Texas, is, in a sense, importing these people into our own government. I mean, not our government. Our communities. Communities. And so we have to pay for it ourselves. Texas doesn't have the money to pay for all of these illegals. Well, I think the other thing is that if they had if the federal government was following the immigration laws, it would be one thing. But they're flouting the laws. They don't have the power to change the laws. So the laws exist, but they're not being followed. And so if the government goes to the court and says, you know, we, the federal government are in charge of carrying out the law, the court could say, well, you're not doing that. So the states of Texas. Why haven't they? Well, I think it's because there have been some cases. And in fact, judges have ordered the restoration of Trump's remain in Mexico policy. Yeah, so the problem here is that you have a jaw to issue as a ruling and the guy is sitting in a courtroom somewhere. And the Biden administration says, oh, yeah, you know, what we'll do that, but then they take weeks to carry it out, and they carry out half heartedly. So they're using the power of enforcement and the supposed discretion that goes with that to flout the law. It's really, it's very, it's very, very bad. And folks, I mean, you know, when you vote, you should know that this is the way that this administration and any Democrat administration is going to behave. They want these people. They want illegal immigration. So, you know, I mean, we have the power to stop them by pulling the lever for the other party. Well, the Hispanics themselves are in revolt. I mean, here's the latest look. This is a quinnipiac poll just out. Biden's approval rating. 33%. But look at his rating with Hispanics. 26%. He's actually lower with Hispanics than he is in the country as a whole. He's pulling badly with every group. In fact, his approval rating with 18 to 34 year olds is 21%. Lowest of any age group. Wow. So I think young people are on to him and Hispanics are on to him. So all of this is so it's almost like you're sort of heating water to a boiling point. And I think the boiling point is going to be the November election. I hope so. We certainly hope so because I hope so I hope people understand what they are voting for and why they vote this way is I have no idea why. I mean, we have a media that covers up for Biden that's hardly any reporting about all these things in the media. And so the news that you're getting day to today is not a reflection of what's going on. It's almost like you have to decode the news and you have to look for alternative sources of information this podcast being one of them where you get a sense of what's really going on. But it looks like the American people are getting the picture. And in a democracy, you know, ultimately it's up to the people to make their voices heard loud and clear. We certainly hope that that will occur this November. Who actually eats 6 servings of fruits and vegetables every single day. Well, who can realistically do that?.

"Joe Biden is proving to be a disaster on all fronts, the foreign policy front, the domestic front, and it's really because of him that the State of the Union is such a mess. Biden himself tries to blame all this on external factors, but he did it. And the State of the Union prior to Biden was actually pretty good despite all the pressures imposed by COVID. So this is a change that's produced by policy and Debbie and I thought we would do. Well, it kind of was survey honey, right? Looking at a couple of the key issues where this guy has changed the policy and gotten a terrible result. And I think there's no single issue one had to come to mind. It would be the border. Well, you know, it's really interesting. You mentioned that because I feel like the border are Mexican border and Mexico poses the largest threat that we have that we face. Even more so than the Middle East. Or China, because they are at war in Mexico. And people don't talk about that, and people don't, you know, we have all these illegals coming through and, oh, we have so many illegals. What are we going to do with them? Let's send them to D.C.. Let's do this. Let's do that. But nobody is addressing the root cause of why these people are coming over in the first place. And so I feel like we're just not putting enough resources. You know, we're sending all this money, obviously the Ukraine right now is needing it and all of that. But Mexico is in a very, very, very severe crisis. They have all these cartels, and I just have to say something really quickly here. But the cartels get emboldened with the president of the whoever the president of the United States is. Makes them emboldened. During Barack Obama, these cartels went haywire. During Trump, not as much, although they were doing their damage, but not as much. Now with Biden, they're emboldened even more because they know that, you know, sleeping Biden is not going to do anything about it. So there was this news article that really captivated my attention and it was a CBS one where 5 men and a woman were found dead on the side of the road. And you know, you might think, well, so what? But this is just a daily occurrence in Mexico, not even to mention the fact that some family members receive severed heads of their family members in suitcases and this too is a daily occurrence, or displaying them, you know, at eatery somewhere. I mean, it's horrific. And the DoJ says that the least goal and seen a lower drug cartels are two of the most dangerous transnational drug cartels in the entire world. And you know how we have a fentanyl problem in America. Guess who is responsible for that fentanyl problem? They are. So I'm sorry, but we need to have some kind of legislation to address this because this is only going to get worse that we're only going to get more people flooded into America because of this, who wants to live in a place where they don't know if they're next, they train children to fight because their parents die. So who is going to defend them? I mean, it's just, it's really bad. Now you mentioned a moment ago that Biden was kind of lethargic or sleep. But shouldn't we go a little further and say that what Biden has been doing is working hand in hand with the cartels. I don't mean that he's conspiring with them. They don't communicate directly with each other. But Biden knows that you're not going to get this traffic of people coming across the border. Without the cartels, facilitating it. And how does somebody move a couple of thousand miles from Costa Rica or Nicaragua and show up and the do you want a border? Right. That's another issue that the cartels are doing is that they're causing all this havoc, but they're also making money on the side. You know, with doing this, they make money on every person that they traffic across America and hey, when you have a when you have a political party that benefits from people needing help like this, and cartels that are more than willing to do it, you know, you have a disaster in your hands. I mean, there's an interesting connection here and I should mention when we think about trafficking this drug trafficking. Cartels are into that. There is human trafficking, cartels are now into that. And here, I just simply mean by trafficking the carrying of people across the border, right? And who does that? Well, the people who do that are often called mules. And it relates to our movie because we're talking about something entirely different trafficking in the ballots area, whole different matter, but the point being here that the cartels give rise to the idea of the mule. The cartels are the ones who have perfected it seems the art of both drug trafficking and to a degree human trafficking. Yeah, they have definitely perfected that. As have the Democrats. Yeah. The.

"Been one of the chief purveyors of disinformation. They've been part of the Russia collusion hoax. In fact, one of the Atlantic writers, Franklin four, was the source of putting out all the lies that were concocted by the Hillary Clinton campaign by this guy sussman by Christopher Steele. So the Atlantic were the not only the dupes, but I think the willing collaborators of these lies. And but this conference was in conjunction with the University of Chicago institute of politics and of course they trot out good old Barack Obama who can be always counted on. I mean, this is America's leading con man. I mean, there's competition, Stacey Abrams is in that competition, Hillary Clinton. There are others. But I think Obama owns the title. In part because he's able to kind of put that pompous expression and look to the left and he looks to the right. It's kind of his style. It was a little bit befuddling when it first came out in 2008, but of course by 2012 and later 2016, everyone had sort of seen through it. It's like the con man who was like fanning out the cards, take a look. Well, you know, we kind of know the routine by now. Well, let's look at Obama. And he's talking about disinformation and here he goes. It's something I grappled with. Imagine Obama grappling with disinformation. During my presidency, I saw it sort of unfold. And that's the degree to which information disinformation and misinformation was being weaponized. Well, let's start with, let's look at that. And analyze. I mean, you can realize how these people don't even think about words. How can information be weaponized? You can't be. Information is basically information. It's like the information contained in DNA or the information in an equation or the information of factuals to how do you weaponize information? Then there's disinformation and misinformation. And again, these are used as synonyms, but it seemed to me that there's a critical difference between these two. Namely, misinformation is if someone is misinformed, someone says something like, oh, you know, I thought you were in your 40s dinesh. I'm like, no, actually, I'm gonna be turning 61. You're misinformed. That's misinformation, but that's not disinformation. Now, of course, of the Indian government puts out some press release, falsely stating that I'm in my 40s for some nefarious purpose, presumably that would be official government propaganda and for that reason it could be counted as disinformation. But, you know, you find that people like Obama have now incorporated these words and kind of melded them together. I think ultimately, to cause confusion, let's continue with Obama. And he says, and we saw it, meaning Obama says we saw it this problem in his time, but I think I underestimated the degree to which democracies were as vulnerable to it as they were, including ours. So Obama miss underestimated how dangerous this misinformation and disinformation. Well, if disinformation can only come from the government, then the disinformation of the Obama administration must have been coming from him. From the Obama administration itself, who else could it be coming from? Is an ordinary citizen capable of producing disinformation? How? Now, misinformation is nothing as a word that basically means error. And how can error be by itself a threat to democracy? Because think about it. What you have in democratic politics and democratic politics are by definition messier than aristocratic or monarchical or even authoritarian politics because an authoritarian country is no argument is allowed. The people aren't even consulted, who cares what they think. And so, but in a democracy, people are fighting over. What is the truth? Which policies work better, and there are competing claims, factual claims, claims of interpretation, sometimes the facts are known, but many times they're not. Particularly in situations where you have something like COVID, which kind of springs on the scene and new virus of unknown origin, where exactly it came from. So naturally, people are going to propound all kinds of theories. Well, this would seem to be the normal give and take of democracy. When the left says as Obama does here, there's misinformation and disinformation. What is an example of this misinformation that's being put out on the right that is supposedly a danger to democracy? Even if the right says things that are wrong or turn out to be wrong, that doesn't inherently threaten democracy. That's merely misinformation, which presumably can be corrected with accurate information. I mean, the whole argument for free speech is that when you have a contest of truth and error, truth is going to win, because truth ultimately is nothing more than a verbal expression of reality. And so reality in this in the end is sorts itself, right? So if I say that if you stick your hand in the fire, it's going to burn you. That can't be misinformation because at some point, someone's going to stick their hand in the fire and they're going to go ouch, and reality turns out is accurately described by what I'm what I'm saying on the other hand, if someone denies it, they're providing misinformation, but if they stick their hand in the fire, they're going to have the same result. So this is the basis of the assertion that truth wins in the end. Obama doesn't seem to believe it. These are people who want to shut down their opponents. If there are my opponents can talk, I win. If my opponents don't get to organize, I win. If I can censor my opponents, I win. And that's the psychology that Barack Obama not only has articulates, but is now brought ultimately to the.

We're looking at a situation that I don't think anybody thought we'd really be looking at. Right now, except well, hey, maybe Barack Obama. Let me present. Joe Biden, ladies and gentlemen, the only president to turn every opportunity into a crisis. That's what it's become. Hello everyone, welcome to the Trisha Regan show. I am Trish. The State of the Union is not good. It's actually very quickly eroding. And you know, I wish I wasn't saying this. Really just my sort of patriotism as a whole means I don't want the country to be in a bad spot, but that's exactly what we're in. I want to point out that portions of today's program are brought to you by legacy precious metals there's never been a better time to invest in precious metals specifically at least as far as I'm concerned gold so go to legacy p.m. investments dot com for more again that's legacy p.m. investments dot com for more. Anyway, that was quite a State of the Union. I'll give them this. You know what I'm going to give them this. He started out decent. He started out saying some of the right things, putting Putin in his place, all those Russian cronies, all those oligarchs, putting them on notice, saying, and I quote, we are coming for your ill begotten gains. He warned those Russians, those oligarchs that are here in the U.S. live in the high life that he's preparing with allies to track down their assets and quote seizure yachts, your luxury apartments, your private jets. Okay, that's good. By the way, why haven't we done it yet? Just asking, we should have. We did. Finally, close the U.S. airspace to Russian airlines, good stuff. We need to do that. And we are apparently sanctioning Russia's largest banks. This is all good, but you know what? It needs to be more because none of this is going to change Putin's mind, especially, or stop the bombings, especially when we're not all hands on deck. We're doing what we always do, and that's putting sanctions in a very, you know what, half, you know, what way? I mean, China says it's not going to sign on to these sanctions. India is not signing up. I mean, had Mexico for goodness 6 Mexico right there on our border is not signing under the sanctions. Yeah, that border wall. That better go up pretty soon for the simple reason, not allowing not just the lawlessness and the constant flow of illegals into this country, but actually just the pure reality that national security reality that we need to defend ourselves, especially if Russia decides to suddenly start sending troops in there to Mexico. They're big buddy now. This is not good, everyone, okay? Sanctions only work when everyone's on board. You all want to do business with the United States of America. We are the number one economy in the world. So if you want to do business with us, we need to say, guess what? Tough luck. If you're not going to shun Russia and their energy, then guess what? You're not going to do business with us. Meanwhile, simultaneously, you got China, not just willing to not shun. They're actually building a pipeline to Russia. While we, well, we do what? We actually kill our pipeline with Canada. I mean, none of this makes any sense. We need to be smarter here. We need to actually work very, very hard to produce all the energy we can for national security reasons. Why are we letting Putin do this? Why are we letting him continue to line his pockets with money from other economies in the east? You know, I got nothing against green energy, by the way, I love it, looking at solar panels for the house. I'm thinking about getting a Tesla. I love green energy, but I'm a realist. And I love America. And so we need all the energy we can get right now. All of it go crazy go for it, invest in solar Joe Biden and administration, but let me just give this little note to the financial communities, specifically black stone which contributes or controls I should say the majority of investments that are out there in this world do not prevent portfolio managers from investing. In traditional energy, the things that we need right now for our national security because of your ESG for that fascination, this made up ESG environmental environmental social governance criteria. I mean, that's a bubble if I ever saw one. We're leading from behind here. Our Intel, I do want to command our Intel, it has been great, but what the heck have we been doing with it? Our lawmakers don't know what to do with it, clearly. Because Putin is going to wind up taking what all of Ukraine and now there's chatter. That Moldova is next. They let that leak, the Russians are letting that one leak. I mean, hey, Jordan Germany is now leading the way. Good for Germany. Good for Germany. I'm okay. You know what with letting the Europeans lead the way on this one, but we need to be doing something I don't want to I don't even know I never want. To be engaging troops ever. But we run a risk where we're going to be put in a situation where we may not have a choice because we're not working hard enough on the trade side. On the sanctions side to say to everyone, you know what you guys got to pick your side. You don't get to have it both ways. You can't have your cake and eat it too. You can't do business with Russia and do business with us. Now we are getting word today. One of the reasons energy prices are being driven so sky high, and I wouldn't be surprised to see $9 a barrel at the oil at the gas pump is very soon. But one of the reasons they're being driven higher is because a lot of traders are shunning this and a lot of banks are shunning the prospect of taking any oil, any natural gas from Russia. So that's good, but we need more of that. We need to be able to just cut them off really hard. I am just stunned by how badly everything is being executed. It kind of just feels sort of reminiscent of Afghanistan. Again, kudos to the intelligence department. I'm just not sure that we're following through in the right ways. And as far as the speech goes back to that for a moment, like I said, he kind of started off with a good saying some good things. But then, well, his own ineptitude kind of took over and it was all downhill from the moment he mistook the Ukrainians for Iranians. Do you remember that last night? I mean, when he was discussing, Ukraine, he said that Putin will never win the hearts of the Iranian people, he meant to say Ukrainian. So no, mister president, it is Ukrainian. It's not Iranian. I realized they rhyme. And maybe we should just all be very happy because he managed to get out of four syllable world. Word. But that's what it's come to. He went on. He ranted about needing more big liberals, spending programs, child care, kindergarten. Here's just the real question. If our country is really struggling with inflation, which it is already and believe me, is about to get much, much worse than do we really think that spending is going to help? I mean, if you spend more money, if you flood the system with even more money, of course it won't. It's an Americans get this even before Americans saw the images coming to us out of Ukraine. They already were showing their disapproval of him, Biden's approval rating. I mean, this is pretty incredible. His approval rating plummeting. New ABC News poll reveals an all time low. Just 37% of Americans approve of his job performance overall with 55% disapproving and this includes a 30% approval just to 30% approval among political independence. So clearly, he is in a political crisis. And I'll tell you, we are nationally in a crisis. We've been frankly just so darn dumb for the last decade. All this insane culture stuff that everybody's been reacting to has really distracted us from the reality of the situation that's been happening overseas. I tell you these idiot lawmakers like AOC who seem more impressed with their own Instagram careers than actually spending time being lawmakers and understanding policy. These politicians, all they have done is divide us, increasingly manipulated issues when it comes to race, equality, economics, all they're trying to do is drive this big old wedge. Between Americans and they have used and they have manipulated everything they can, everything they can get their hands on. Totally distracted America from what the real issues are that really matter. And you know what we need strength. We need strength. We need to be realistic here at a time like this because when Putin's coming for you, you know what? And the bombs are coming down. Worrying about transgender rights for this 0.01% of the population. Look, I'm sorry, this is a distraction. This is, I feel bad for anybody who's going through that. And I have no problem, actually, if they want to use the ladies room. But come on, I mean, you're actually going to put this in that they can, I don't even want to go down this path because it's just so much of a tangent. I mean, we've got another tangent today. They're trying to, again, remake Dr. Seuss, the company that runs Dr. Seuss is coming out with a whole new set of books in the doctors who Dr. Seuss spirit that's being done by a group of minorities. I'm just sorry. You know what? This is stuff that we don't have really time to focus on right now in our countries up against it in this massive, massive way. I'm going to get to that in a second. And I also want to get to the markets in just a moment because there's one indicator that I'm watching, have them watching. It's a signal that there are going to be better things ahead for our stock market coming up, and this is the signal that I think you really need to watch in terms of deciding when you want to get in to buy, but before I do that, before I do that, I want to get to a word from one of our sponsors, one of our sponsors that really. Here we go. Here we go. I'm thrilled to bring on board with us here as a new sponsor, and it's healthy so, you know, when you think about the changes in medicine, it's been pretty remarkable.

"the union" Discussed on KGO 810
"Unions. I mean child labor laws the five day work week, even though that might be changing soon, an eight hour work day, right? I mean, all of these things happened. Because of unions. 415 80 88 10. Do you want to be part of a union? It's a simple question. Do you see the need for them? Because I've had conversations with people that say no, I don't want to be part of a union. I don't want to be kind of beholden to the mass to the to the majority on negotiate my own pay. I'll look out for myself. I don't want to pay the dues fill in the blank. Other reasons so 415 80 88 10. Do you want to see more unions or something? Even call it a resurgence of unions in the United States. This is a parade. The Associated Press was highlighting this recently. Regarding the new contract at a Volvo plant in Virginia. This past spring, 2900 workers went on strike. So now this is during the pandemic. And so the company came forward with, you know, an offer. And it was pay raises signing bonuses. Lower price healthcare And the worker said no. Company came back with a second offer. Nope. Finally, the third off was offer was accepted it had higher raises, plus lump sum bonuses. And you know, the unionist say this would not have happened pre pandemic and again the pandemic it Yes, it's been around for a year and a half, which is a long time. But again There is a strength in numbers happening right now. And you know, some people have even said Union or not. This push towards remote work workers kind of pushing back a bit, making new decisions about what they want to do with their lives. Given this pandemic and the reflection that's been happening It's kind of like a general strike nationwide of all kinds of workers. And so that's why I wanted to ask. I mean the full disclosure. Of course. Brett were part of a union were part of SAG after a I grew up in a union household. My dad was part of a union. My mom was part of the union. Uh, it's worked for them. They were able to have meaningful wages and raises and things like that. And then you saw it. With the San Francisco Giants. Uh, the concession workers they are going on strike. They voted on Saturday overwhelmingly to strike nine. Almost 97%. Of active Stadium workers voted to strike and they're upset. Now The workers are employed by Bon Appetit. We reported this on Friday on KGO Bona petite is contracted by the Giants. No, They did work Saturday nights a game, but they'll no longer um, they will. Yeah. They also worked on Sundays Series finale. But the ball Park service workers want better health care hazard pay safety on the job. And they're going back to the negotiating table this week. So this isn't some far off. Although plant you know, in another part of the country, this is going to impact you when you go to a ball game. Want those concessions? Those are union workers who have rights and they're demanding them so 415 80 88 10. I want to hear your thoughts about unions. Have you ever been in a union You were happy with not happy with why And let's start with Emma. She is calling from Sacramento. Good morning, Emma. What are your thoughts? Good morning. My thoughts are depends on the union. When I lived in Hawaii. We were with the hotel restaurant union. Very strong, very strong. Sacramento. Very weak. It seems like they take more of your money than helping you out. Johnny, I am for unions, but depends on the union. To be honest with you. Now, when you talk about, you know, strong versus weak unions, Emma. I mean a union is, as they say, only as strong as its members. Why do you find what do you find are the problems with the weak unions and why they are that way? Um, I just think for me it's like I I think he worked for the company. I mean, for the Corporates more than they do for the people. That's what I feel about it. Like I know my union. We were used to be strong and Sacramento and then it just started becoming weaker because Corporates were taking kind of over them. Yeah, Yeah. Thank you. So much for your phone call. I received a text message from someone in the 65. Oh, He said. Unions fight for the workers with lawyers. A hey lawyer is but when the employer has them, you need them to protect you not like back when businesses were too small. To have lawyers. And then of course, it's numbers, right? I mean, if your union has a handful of people, and they whittle you down and whittle you down There is strength in numbers President of Unite here local to which represents those Oracle park workers as an odd saying, and was explaining why these workers are do what they're demanding. Last season was a lost season. There were no fans in the stands are members were laid off the entire season. Um, and it has put a lot of pressure on workers and their families, so they need real waging priests. And that's the thing. I mean, it seems this pandemic has revealed or kind of raise the curtain a bit on this, this narrative that some companies promote, like You need us We don't need you know it's a mutual thing. You know, I want to work. I want to get a wade that where I can sustain my life and my family or whatever. And on the other side, the businesses won't workers who are dedicated do the job that they were hired to do, etcetera. Another thing also goes into the The kind of way where In this pandemic you really saw some companies not really value the human side of their worker. There's signs up signage up about masking about social distancing that goes unenforced and we've had 20 occurrences of covid 19 among these workers at the ballpark this season alone, you know, everybody has responsibility here. You've got to step up and make this right and these workers deserve no less. Absolutely. I mean, if you if you work for a company And they're not enforcing basic things that can keep you healthy. Keep your family safe, then I would say that that means that they're not really valuing you to begin with. That's a big issue. I mean more than 20, he said. 20 concession workers at Oracle that time. I would be. I'd be frightened to go to the job. Absolutely. And I think, uh, unions are there for that specific reason to keep you safe to take care of you and to watch out for Corporations that take advantage of their employees. Mhm. My first experience with the union was here. Yeah, I showed up And I thought, Okay, so I'm forced to join a union and I joined a union. I didn't know anything about a union. I mean, you know, I'm was familiar with a union. But I just never never been in that environment and was really interesting. I did. My first experience wasn't a very positive one. Should I share? This May be, uh, So I would always work to get the job done and not necessarily not necessarily work in a box of the eight hours at whatever. Well, there were a couple of, uh Fellow union employees who noticed me working overtime. And they got on my case about it and almost went to the union to say, you know, you got to be building the company for that, and I was always working on of the operation of I need to do the best job I can on this, no matter how long it takes, right? Yeah. Um, And so that was my first experience. I kind of learned from that experience. And obviously you know the company you know, I would pay me the overtime that I deserve, but Um, but that was that my first negative experience, But since then it's been nothing but positive. And what the company what the union has done for us as employees. I mean, and, yeah, I think everybody can have different experiences, depending on their work ethic. Right listener from the 650 said. I hated the union when I worked at UPS. Because it allowed workers who sucked but had been there longer to get preferential treatment, like staying for overtime, and they were crappy at their job. That is the negative of the union. There will always be. I was just having this conversation with my mother last week, there will always be people and union or not. Within your workplace. You know them the minute I'm talking. You have that face. You see instantly right there. You know, they're they're They're kind of using the system in their favor because they have this sort of protection, which yes, but there will be that. In every aspect of life, right? It doesn't negate. Yeah, it doesn't negate the protections that unions can get you the wages that they can help get you but, of course, a union again. Is only as strong as its members and the risks that members are willing to take. Like those Oracle concession workers. They're going on strike, you have to be able to kind of call the bluff. Or it won't work at all. Um and fight for what you want. It has to be hard. Others. Also speaking of labor, there's this California bill. They.

And besides, Randi Weingarten says the union has a large war chest to file suit. Against state legislators and localities that band critical race theory. But those two groups, legislatures, localities that do have the right the responsibility to help set school curriculum. Controlling what is in school curricula is what local authorities do without lawsuits from the American Federation of Teachers, and by the way fundamentally, she has said they don't teach CRT in K through 12. But yet she's willing to provide money and legal fees covered. As well as lawyers provided to any teacher in those 26 states that have banned critical race theory. So what do you actually supporting if you're not teaching it? What are you actually doing? Nobody has anything against American history, the good and bad, But they hate twisting genders and making kids more aware of who they are.

So the other major issue that has with the vitamin inspiration on its heels is not going away. They wanted to talk about the evils of law enforcement. How they're reimagining the force.

And you even though they are very pro Joe Biden, they could not go along with that. Mayor Lori Lightfoot is one of the worst mayors around the least effective and the most defensive.

We're watching these babies die year after year after year, and no one seems to care. At least he's now on the issue. And you know, he did come from the inner city adverse situations economically challenged from day one, so we'll hear about his story and man, I hope he's up for this job. I say it as somebody in New York City, of course, But if New York City can get it right, others will follow, and if they actually want to save their party, they will have that attitude, not notice.

Thinks you know no one no longer want to have anything to do with the trade. Unions is wrong because The trade unions provide A certain degree of ballast ideologically. They provide a certain number of workers for the policy at election. Time and also You know they still an ideological affinity. If you like between social democratic policies on trade unions in terms of you know the Support for the public sector so relationships are quite close then not perhaps it's questions they once were but certainly not the complete divorce so in recent years.

In the last couple of years the number of people in unions of upper bits overall the percentages of i mean. It's still if you go about twenty twenty five years. You're looking at maybe. A third of people in unions is now more like a quarter. But what what's the twins that you're saying that particular industries where more people are joining unions there. I mean clearly. I mentioned that membership of coal mining unions. It's not what it was thirty four years ago but what. What are the trends.

This match oh fight for the leadership of you not going on which fills feels quite wet show and nineteen seventies and bearing sandwiches walkouts in burning braces and that sort of stuff which doesn't seem to have much to do with the modern day workforce.

Sasha thanks for being here thanks pamela. Let's start with something that probably not a lot of your readers will know but you know very well and i know which is that. This book was supposed to come out a full year ago. In june twenty twenty and it was one of those books that was delayed by the covid pandemic but maybe delayed the most. What was that like. It was tough so it got delayed three times in the last year. And i think some of that was in the spring. It was a marketing consideration that with bookstores closed and no live events. A lot of publishers held their books back and then it was supposed to come out last september. And by that point it was sort of a manufacturing problem as best i gathered. Publishers can actually get the books out of warehouses because people were sick. I learned the hard way that book publishing facilities are basically like meat. Packing plants with with wood pulp. So i had a lot set up last fall. And i had to put it all on hold and here i am must be a big relief if nothing else it is and you know. It was pretty cautious in writing this book of understanding that this was a topic where it was possible events in the news could affect it and tried to write it so that when it came out it would be current and i think there was some possibility that things can happen over the last year. That would change that dynamic and they really haven't in a significant way which is which is useful. You mentioned wood pulp and there is a lot of wood pulp in this book. It's over seven hundred pages. I hope that won't deter people. It moves very quickly but obviously you did a lot of research. It must have taken some time to write. And then of course you had that delay in coming out. What has it been like to sit with the subject for long time. How long have you been working on it so i. I had the idea for this a decade ago. And i saw the proposal in the spring of two thousand twelve. I've been living with it for ten years and it was about six years of reporting research and writing and then then the various things we talked about you know the one of the things that the subject changed right.

You must educate educate not only yourself educate anyone seeking to learn. We are all americans. We can all learn something to learn. We must challenge what we already understand the way we do. That is through conversation. Sometimes we have conversations with others however some of the best conversations with ourselves. Reach out and challenge yourself. Let's dive in and learn something right now on today's episode. I just want to take the time and remind everybody that the united states is a union. We came together for a cause a purpose. There is reasoning behind the union and to preserve the union. It matters we need to realize how strong the union actually is. There's a lot of high and there's a lot of suffrage going on behind the scenes that a lot of people don't even see the worry the stress in the strain that has been placed upon the american people. It's unacceptable. We have set back and we have watched our politicians make fools of themselves and make it look as though if our system is unsustainable if we all settled down and use our brains and dive in to the constitution we can understand it has clauses implemented in the constitution that helps resolve issues when our congress is stuck and they cannot get things resolved. There are ways to handle the bitter differences and get to a conclusion. We often hear about them wanting to amend the constitution. While i think they've done enough damage to the constitution. What we need right now and right now most of all is we need to read in to article five of the constitution. We need to understand. The several states can come together and man the constitution and get it ratified. This is very important for us to understand. We do not need violence. We do not need people lashing out at one another. We've been down that road before it's time to settle down and realize there are detractors. Here in america that wants us to collapse. We have a strong union. We have seen tremendous growth within our union from its infancy. All it takes is the good men and women to stand up and say enough is enough. I don't care if you're a democrat or a republican. What i care about is our union this form of government that we cherish it has proven to be the best in history. We must carry on with the work. We must fix the union. We must come together enough arguing enough bickering. There is major work to be done. I am not blaming anyone for this because we are all at fault. We all let this happen when we do not put checks and balances on our civil employees. We have problems. We need to come together and we need to resolve the issues in america. It does not matter if you are rich or you are poor. Your voice matters and we have to remember that you have the same rights being a poor person as the richest person in america and that is no longer respected in this union. We have a lot to fix our. You grown up enough to actually fix. We are on a teeter totter right now. Which direction will america slide. I am just praying for each. And every one of you. And i asked that each and every one of you calm down and think about what you are doing now on a lighter note. We've been working hard on the podcast in the background.
