Kodak Crashes 85% from Recent Peak
"Kodak. We've been all over this for the past two weeks. Right I told you they got a seven hundred and sixty five million dollar loan to get into the drug. Business Kodak the Film Camera Company getting into the drug business. Turns out in their one hundred thirty, one year history they actually were in the drug business for six years from one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, hundred, ninety, four, it was a failure they got out and it's notable that they got in one thousand nine, hundred, eighty, two years before the recession set in right typical top of the cycle de Worse vacation kind of acquisition move for for a company is being managed into into the ground so. That's where it to the reason episode again and and we're back in the drug business with this seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan from the government I thought that was just kind of crazy enough all by itself because sent the stock soaring from to sixty two on a Monday to sixty dollars at the peak on a Wednesday in you know the third trading session of the week that week. Just insane. That was crazy enough right. Then what are we talk about last week? Well, they granted themselves stock options the day before announcement like that's not fishy like. Crony capitalist move, you know to just try to rake some of his money off the top of the management team. Okay. Now. This Week There's well other stuff going on. So so since last we talked the SEC is investigating this thing. And the loan from the. International, the government agencies called the DNC, the Development Finance Corporation the DNC loan is on hold. And the stock as I speak Ios below ten bucks again, and if you look at the stock chart of the last several days, it looks like it was flatlined. You know like somebody whose heart stopped and then wham the hit it with the paddles and now it looks like his heart stopped again it's a ridiculous episode but I feel like I need to clarify something because of at least one feedback email I got in this case. No, it is not okay for these executives to get stock option grants it's not okay and it wasn't okay for them to get them. I don't believe even back in May. Right I put together a time line I wrote a whole piece about this for the stands very digest and I put together a time line and my timeline showed that the order the executive order from President Trump. Was May fourteenth. Two days before that Kodak moves seventy million dollars from a Chinese subsidiary to a US subsidiary quote in anticipation of an intercompany transaction and quote I believe starting up a new pharmaceutical subsidiary constitutes an intercompany transaction, right? So that was actually made twelfth may fourteenth. Trump is used the executive order and invokes the defense production act and says, Hey, you know, let's lend money to companies so that we can produce drugs domestically because too much drug production is overseas in places like China and India by the way if you research that, it's not completely true. We'll talk about that. Maybe another day Kodak made the director option grants the first time on May twentieth today their annual meeting. So, eight days before they're moving money from Chinese from a foreign subsidiary to to a US subsidiary anticipation of a major transaction. Then trump invokes this defense production act, which is just appropriates money for national security right two days later, then six days later, they grant themselves these options at premium prices. Then approximately may eighth according to an interview with the CEO Kodak, and this government agencies start talking about its new drug business. Then on July twenty seven, these idiots grant themselves more options. Then July twenty eighth and it leaks out stock was up twenty, five percent that day the news leaked out. and. Then Twenty John Twenty as the big announcement right? Seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan to Kodak the shares were up four fold that day July twenty, ninth the stock price hit sixty dollars. And the volume that day is like a hundred and sixty times the previous day and the previous day was twenty, two times the David were that. Next Day July thirtieth a fellow called Mike or non gap thoughts. Which is a a newsletter that he writes on sub stack non gap thoughts. He writes this article citing these suspicious option grant dates when and strike prices next day July thirty fourth. Wall Street? Journal publishes an article citing the potential you know ninety, they said ninety five million dollar windfall for CEO Jim Continente. And there were others on on the Management Team received the options to August. Fourth Wall Street Journal publishes an article citing a new SEC investigation into the disclosure of the loan and the option grants right because it looked like the the loan with the news of the Lomas leaked out on the twenty seventh I think is really what they were concerned about. But the whole thing stinks and let me tell you something what I alluded to earlier when I said I need to make something clear about this. This is not the way capitalism is supposed to work. A corporate management team is supposed to make a lot of money. They're supposed to get ninety five million dollars for creating a business that has performed well for a period of time. That has generated you know for ninety, five, million bucks. You'd better be generating you know at least a billion or more couple of billion hopefully in free cash flow over a period of time consistently, right a real sustainable business for that kind of reward. You don't get paid that kind of money just for getting a loan to be in a business that you were in for six years out of your one, hundred, thirty, one year history and sucked at. Okay that's not the way this is supposed to work. This is the ranking crony capitalism, the EST crony capitalism. And crony capitalism is when you get paid for no in people, right it starts looking suspicious back in May when they're moving seventy million bucks from China to the US, it looks like they already knew they were going to do something and then Oh, two days later trump invokes this this executive order appropriating these loans for this kind of stuff and then up six days. Later, we start granting ourselves options at prices that suggests we know the stock is GonNa take off like a rocket ship. Then we do it again on July twenty seven just to show you how utterly stupid we are. This is not the way it's supposed to work they basically what they did here was. They just took money from well, you know this government money. So you could say they took taxpayer money and they said how can we get way too much of this money in our own pockets? Oh, I know let's grant ourselves a bunch of options. Okay, your stand. Now, I don't have a problem with option grants in general I. Realize people need to be incentivized. It's just the way. Things are nowadays right to to attract good management. You gotta pay them. What looks like way too much money a lot of the time, but this is not that. This is a management team taking money from taxpayers and really taken ultimately from shareholders as well. They're given themselves equity for free that the shareholders have to buy in the market. This isn't the only episode of this. You'RE GONNA see there was a smaller episode that I I kinda filed this way I didn't think I was going to mention it but there was a guy. David? T hines in a story in the Washington. Post. July. Twenty Eighth I mean it's all allegations so I don't know I'll just say this poor fool apparently borrowed four million dollars in this federal PPP paycheck paycheck protection program it was part of the cares act. Right. The cares act was that two trillion dollar corona virus bill that was signed into law in March and included three hundred and forty, nine billion in forgivable loans for small businesses to maintain operating expenses. Mostly payroll, right? That's why it's called. PAYCHECK protection program. So you can just pay your employees even though maybe you're running a restaurant and they have to stay home because of the cove in nineteen, right. So this guy gets four million from this program and then a week later people see him riding around. Miami beach in a Lamborghini. A brand new Lamborghini Lamborghini. Hurricana. Which I guess. That's an electric Lamborghini costs more than three hundred, eighteen, thousand dollars again, how stupid is this guy? That's like granting yourself options the day before the loan announcement. And of course, these things are ripe for. For, this kind of abuse, this is what you get went when the government starts literally like throwing money around all, this is done very very hastily right because we think we have to act we have to act now. and. So this is what you wind up with. You wind up with Kodak and you wind up with this poor sad sack who who thought he wasn't GonNa get caught when he use P P peabody to buy a fricking Lamborghini. It's you know somebody's going to include that in some kind of TV you know some kind of fictional TV show because it's just too priceless. So that's where we are that. That's where we are in. You know the state of of all things financial in August of twenty twenty. Boy Twenty twenty is the weirdest fricken year. I mean things that I won't even get into some of the things that that people I know have been exposed to this year, but it's just. So it's also utterly weird when you shut who who'd a thunk who'd a thunk when you shut down the global economy because you're afraid everybody's going to get the flu or whatever. That all of this stuff would happen that you would get people you know in Lamborghinis with government money and you know Kodak Management taking money out of taxpayers, pockets would have thunk it. Anybody. With a brain is the answer to that one anybody with a brain. And what what you do about what you do about it well. Look we told I told you to avoid Kodak because. People look at that kind of action and the knee jerk. The thing that's built into your brain you know that's that's been kind of evolving for hundreds of thousands of years in complete evolved for hundreds of thousands of years completely different circumstances that have nothing to do with investing. So immediately, as soon as you see that surge Kodak you want hit the buy button but I'm telling you it's deadly and wrong every single time

Makeover: Oil Giant BP Promises to Cut Oil Production, Invest in Renewables
"Somebody had to go I. It's no surprise that Covid Nineteen Delta Draconian blow to the oil and gas industry stay at home orders and line shutdowns of dramatically reduced the need for oil and gas prices and earnings plunged well. Now at least one giant oil company says demand for fossil fuels will never be the same again and it's taking steps not just to pivot, but to make itself over entirely. That business is BP the london-based behemoth last week, the one, hundred, ten year, old company announced a seventeen billion dollar quarterly loss and multibillion dollar writedown of its assets. But what generated headlines was its announcement that over the next decade, it intends to discard its identity as a fossil fuel business. Instead, it'll invest heavily in a wide variety of renewable energy technologies on its way to achieving net zero emissions by twenty fifty. Specifically bb says it will cut oil and gas production by forty percent over the next decade. At the same time, it plans to put ten times as much money into renewable energy investments as it currently does with a goal of investing five billion dollars a year by twenty thirty bio-energy hydrogen, carbon, capture and storage investments in electric vehicle charging stations are all said to be on the menu as our wind and solar. From. A business perspective the move does make some sense BP expects demand for oil to fall between fifty and seventy five percent over the next thirty years as the world attempts to slow global warming. In June BP officials acknowledged that the pain caused to the oil business by the pandemic isn't temporary. It's permanent. They say in a statement, they said covid nineteen would accelerate an existing transition to a lower carbon economy as country seek to quote, build back better meaning in ways less harmful to the environment. The shift is taking a toll on BP's employees. The company announced in June that it plans to lay off ten thousand people. BP's dismal second quarter didn't seem to faze investors instead they embrace the company's new renewable energy shift its share price leapt seven percent on the news stuart joyner an analyst at the market research firm redburn remarked that the move was major positive, thoughtful, and largely unexpected the New York Times reported. Unexpected too many perhaps, but close observers of the company may not have been that surprised. BP has spent the last decade clawing back from its disastrous deepwater horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. For obvious reasons, the company hasn't exactly been a darling of environmentalists, but quickly after becoming CEO in February Bernard Looney made a pledge for BP to achieve net zero emissions by twenty fifty it was the first of giant global oil companies to do so. At the time both socially conscious and traditional investors applauded BP's pledge Andrew Logan and oil and gas director at series a climate change advocacy organization said EP was setting a new standard for leadership in the oil industry CNN reported and Barclays analysts called the plan both fundamental and radical. Last week. Looney. said in a statement quote. This coming decade is critical for the world in the fight against climate change and to drive the necessary change in global energy systems will require action from everyone but so far oil giants. Exxon and Chevron have not followed suit indeed mobile continues to expand oil exploration and production around the world despite its own sharp drop in earnings. The Washington Post reported BP has attempted and failed at other eco, friendly initiatives over the years and BP will continue to invest in and make most of its money from fossil fuels for at least another five years. Still observers agree that this is the company's most transformative move yet, and the realities of business may give BP's ecoconscious strategy more momentum than has existed in the past. As reporter Steven muffs wrote in. The Washington Post for. BP. Is trying to get ahead of what climate change might forced the industry to do. Anyway.

Trump pushes forward with executive action on economy despite legal questions
"CNN White House correspondent Boris Sanchez Boris President Trump is defending the executive orders issued on pandemic relief even as the White House is struggling to explain them they're having trouble landing out for the American people. Yeah that's right. Jim The president also spinning these executive actions claiming that they do more to help struggling Americans than they actually do the president dodging criticism even from within his own party that these actions are unconstitutional and also ignoring previous statements that he's made about executive actions. Tonight president trump sparring with his own party taking aim at critics of his new executive actions tweeting that Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse is a Republican in name only saying he has quote gone rogue. Again, this foolishness plays right into the hands of the radical left Dem's SAS tearing into trump's decision to circumvent stimulus negotiations in Congress calling the move unconstitutional slap comparing the actions to President Obama's signing of executive orders after lawmakers could not reach consensus orders that trump himself frequently criticized. The country was in based on executive orders right now Obama goes around signing executive orders. It's a basic disaster you can't do it in theory is opposed to you know the old fashioned way get everybody into a room and get something that people agree on trump was not in the room getting lawmakers together instead spending the weekend at his Golf Club in New Jersey as questions linger over whether the actions will survive legal challenges, members of the administration struggled to even explain them.

Beirut explosion: Death toll rises to 200 as protests continue
"One of the top stories this week, unfortunately, was the massive explosion in Beirut. There was arrested Look for more survivors. As thousands were injured and the explosion there looked to be the result of negligence. There was huge amounts of ammonium nitrate that exploded, they were improperly stored in a warehouse for over six years. Half of the city's destroyed and thousands have been left homeless for more on what we know about this. We spoke to miss you. Ryan, National Security reporter at the Washington Post, You know well, it was really just a catastrophic scene in downtown Beirut. And he said there was a series of explosions. First, this initial fire, smaller fire or explosion. They're different accounts. And then this. Masses mushroom cloud blasts followed by the blast wave course he not across the city, and one would assume that some people were killed in the explosion close to the port. And then there were lots of people wounded and probably dead in the blast wave that broke windows, destroyed buildings and affected people, Miles and miles away. And so people who are on the ground there, and they were just sort of describing this apocalyptic scene where hospitals were overwhelmed. There was nitrous oxide fumes that were potentially dangerous, and this is happening in the country that is already really struggling with Cupid. Pandemic, of course, but then a series of political and economic crises that have triggered inflation and widespread protests over the last year, so this is coming at a very, very hard time for Lebanon. Obviously a lot of people. I know by now, I've seen the video of the explosion. There's so many different angles, so many different videos. There's videos of people experiencing their normal life. And then the blast comes. I saw A video of a family just looking out their window at the fire, and then the windows just completely exploding on them. As the big blast came. Another video I saw was a woman taking bridal pictures and then the huge blast comes and knocks her down and the crew down and everything so just kind of the devastation that that's there and was caught on video is pretty crazy, but I wanted to ask about the ammonium nitrate and why it was there in the first place, and why it was there for so long. Basically, obviously one of the first questions after this happened, Wass what caused this explosion. Initially people were trying to figure out was this some sort of military attack or terrorist attack, But Lebanese officials have said that they believe that it was The result of this improperly stored ammonium nitrate, which we're told was there as a result of basically a stranded shipment that was headed for somewhere else in 2013 or 2014 and was brought And because of a legal dispute in a sort of custody dispute was brought into the port facility in Beirut. And then nobody has really clarify. Why remain there for so long? And I think that that the anger of the Lebanese people ask you why there would have been this highly flammable explosive material stored in the middle of a pact teeming city that's going to be prompting, you know a huge amount of political pressure there already. We've reported that there are some port employees have been placed under house arrest. There are calls or government officials or port officials to be held personally accountable, But I think we're just the beginning of that whole process. And I should add that the U. S government officials that we're talking Tio don't have that much independent information at this point, But what they're saying is They don't have any reason to think so far, and this is evolving that it was anything other than but negligence or an accident. Yeah, it just seems like if this was purely negligence, it's almost worse that if it was a nefarious attack, this is something that could have been totally avoided. You did mention a few of the other things that were going on in Beirut and Lebanon specifically with regards to Corona virus, because the pandemic is obviously affecting the world right now. I know the hospitals are already kind of overtaxed and this is just going to make it worse considering so many people were injured there. I think, they said over 135 dead now and over 4000 people injured and those numbers they're going to change. One would have seemed so. I mean, one of the things that was happening today, with people digging through rubble. Many buildings further away from the port, sort of as he went out, had windows or doors blown out, but structurally or intact, but that no one's closest to the port. Some of them are destroyed. And so people were pulling people out of the rebel today, So you would assume that that death toll would potentially rise and then we have reports of at least 4000 people who were injured. So it was really scary event for a lot of people and then the rebuilding process. Now I've been seeing just people throw numbers around. You never know what the true cost would be. Repairs could cost $5 billion. I mean in the initial area, there was just totally devastated. There's a huge hole the warehouse was One of other countries been doing to offer help. The French president is supposed to visit Lebanon tomorrow. Some of the European countries already sending or talking about sending assistance. I saw reports of Russia operate assistance. The U. S government has so far not said whether or not It'll send eight or potentially logisticians or any sort of personnel to assist. But that's also a possibility. And I would assume that something like that would, of course from the United States as well. One of the other things Teo think about is the fact that there were these massive grain Silas basically right next to the areas, the site of the explosion in the port area that had And them so those were not destroyed or significantly damaged. And so that could really hasten concerns about food security in Lebanon, which it is sort of crazy to think about Lebanon. Being a food, insecure country was always thought as one of the most well to do in the past countries. In the Middle East. It did go through a big punishing civil war in the 19 eighties, but it's really sad to think about Lebanon being in this place. Missy Ryan, National Security reporter at the Washington Post.

With the the history And now with these latest, you know, following his arrest on the domestic violence charges, I don't see Darius guys being back in the NFL.

Clear that he didn't do it like that's like that's the first thing, and then he's gonna have to go into camp on a minimum contract and prove his worth like He's gonna have to go to a work out to be a few running backs injured, but it's not gonna happen, Probably this season. It will be a next season kind of deal because he's got some legalities that are gonna have to play out which which We don't want to presume his guilt yet Mohr or his innocence for the poor for that bag, But You know, it's gonna have to wait for the dust to settle and with Antonio Brown. It took them a year to quote unquote investigate him and he was in professional purgatory, and he wasn't even facing legal charges. So who knows how long this will take?

Last month said the grand jury subpoena for the tax returns was issued in bad faith and amounted to harassment of the President Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus. Vance junior seeks eight years of the Republican presidents, personal corporate tax records, but has disclosed little about what prompted him to request the records other than part of the investigation relates to payoffs to women to keep them quiet about alleged affairs with trump.

So called Hush money payments this court is already aware that the assertion is fatally undermined by undisputed information. In the Public Record Vance's lawyers wrote, they said that information confirms the validity of a subpoena seeking evidence related to potentially improper financial transactions by a variety of individuals and entities.

County based trump organization dating back over a decade these reports described transactions involving individual and corporate actors based in New York, county, but whose conduct at times extended beyond New York's borders this possible criminal activity occurred within the applicable statute of limitations.

It's easy to get caught up in the daily news overlook the big picture. So this week we're taking a little step back in looking at the origin stories of some of America's most iconic companies I in our series trader. Joe's it's founder Joe Colom died in. March, at the age of eighty nine trader Joe's of course, is the neighborhood grocery chain that transformed millions of people, shoppers, and employees alike into cult-like fans. The impact of his markets has been so significant that the Washington Post called Coloma cultural icon there's no trader Joe's near You well, let me. Step back for just a second and tell you the story. It was nineteen, sixty, seven Joe Coolum. Thirty seven had built a chain of eighteen convenience stores in California when gigantic seven eleven came along and he realized he couldn't compete according to the New York Times. The had to find something else to do one day. Kulam read that sixty percent of young people who were qualified to go to college. We're going thank you GI bill. He also read that Boeing was building a plane, the seven, thirty seven that would give more people the opportunity to travel overseas the assumed more international travel would make Americans pallets more adventurous New York Times reported. The idea for trader Joe's a store with fresh produce, sophisticated flavors and good wine affordable prices was born he opened the first one in Pasadena California that year famously Kulon conceived of Trader Joe's is a store for the quote over educated and underpaid his stores would serve budding foodies who wanted something more than they could get it typical supermarkets but who couldn't pay a fortune for it and something? More was what he built quirky stores with. South. Seas flair shelves stocked with Exotic Cheeses and gourmet foods from other countries and eventually natural foods and organic produce.

Joe Biden's Potential Running Mate: Who Is Karen Bass?
"Campaign Campaign 2020. 2020. We We don't don't have have long long to to wait wait for for Joe Joe Biden Biden to to announce announce his his running running mate. mate. It's It's expected expected to to happen happen next next week. week. As As the the list list is is narrowed. narrowed. California California Democratic Democratic Congresswoman Karen Bass is considered a key contender. She's 66 chairs the Congressional Black Caucus. We talk about Bass with Washington Post political analyst and data columnist David Beiler, who has continued his Siri's looking at various potential Biden. Runningmate. Karen Bass would be governing choice rather than election choice. You know, she's a representative from California, California is not exactly a swing state so she doesn't have exactly those advantages. But her advantages would really come into play. Actually, when buying is in office so fast is widely known as someone who is a compromiser who sort of an incrementalist, not someone who is necessarily a purist, which really sets with Biden's governing style. He talks a lot about wanting to negotiate and compromise with the Republicans as much as possible. She is the head of the Congressional Black Caucus. On DSO. Dominating paths would be a real nod to multiple different groups that have been important to the buying campaign. There's black women who are the most Democratic demographic group in the country. There are black congressional leaders like Jim Clyburn, who helped revive Biden's campaign when it was really on the ropes in late February of this year. Andi. She's someone who I think you've seen in recent interviews has some instincts that are a little bit Biden esque When asked about the defund the police slogan she sort of did to step that. I think you reminded me. A fine one was to say, I don't like defund the police as a slogan, which is smart because that collection of words does not pull well. At the same time, we're sort of able to say they're these elements of the plans that I support. And those are elements of the plans that her constituents like so she kind of has a lot of stylistic things and a lot of talents and abilities that I think makes her sort of governing pick if you well, you alluded to this about the fact that she's from California, and you're not gonna get a Republican victory in California at least on this level. Is that the one downside to abiding bass ticket or are there others? I think the other downside is that the vetting Been relatively minimal compared to some of the other candidates. Now, Obviously, the buying campaign is doing their own betting with every candidate right now, and you know, putting him through the paces and seeing if there's something going on That they wouldn't want on their ticket. But Bass within the last couple months has come under fire for remarks where she called Fidel Castro commandant and Hef and sort of had a tone that lot of other people. Democrats from Florida in particular did not appreciate so the question with passes. Is there more baggage? When you look at someone like Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren? They've already been through the wringer and a presidential primary. Susan Rice has already gone through a Senate confirmation hearing. So the question with bass is also just Is there anything that you don't know that might be harmful, and the answer might be know that by knows everything and that there's nothing else there. But You know, there's some amount of risk in a pick that hasn't been in the public eye so much. David Beiler, political analysts and data columnist for The Washington Post, joining us on Skype.
LEC Announces Sponsorship from Saudi Arabia's NEOM and Quickly Retracts
"League of Legends European Championship or C. announced a sponsorship from meal a new futuristic city plan by Saudi. Arabia. Why is a city sponsoring in East sports event? You might ask a great question, but it definitely didn't go as planned because after a day of internal and external outcry riot announced, the sponsorship would be cancelled. So what is NEOM? It's a project from the Saudi, Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salaam, whose goals to build a futuristic mega-city. They'll become a hub for tech in tourism on the coast of the red seat, the project is estimated to cost five, hundred billion dollars. The. Saudi crown prince is a controversial figure for a number of reasons in the West. The murder of Washington Post was Jomo. Kashogi is one of the most notable. The city is also controversial for the displacement of tribe about twenty thousand people currently live in the area of the plan city. The Saudi government has been accused of killing people who speak up about the plans for the new city. Finally. Saudi, Arabia's history of human rights issues. Especially, the people who identify as lgbtq stands in stark contrast to the pride themed logo and the company's statements on inclusivity. Many LGBTQ members of Right Games spoke out about how the sponsorship defies any stay admission to align with the. Lgbtq community that includes many of members of the ilise own commentating staff after a day of outcry which many people inside and outside of Right Games chastised the company for this decision.

"Hi It's Bernie Bach with a topcoat audio clip episode five, three, three. Talking to you on the. Speaker APP soup you're listening and you WANNA see imagery that goes along with these thoughts about. Collaborative. Ticking than that speaker, apple shares some screengrabs. If you listen inside the APP alternatively, there's website inside you that I e were employed posting this ended up, you know play what you're hearing. I WanNa, do collaborative, not taking i WanNa talk to you about that because. I'm about to start another year with students in a creative media did join a nation and game design program three different degrees on the clonmel digital campus of the limerick. Institute of Technology on. It's important that I get from those students how they do not taking effectively and how I might share some of my highest value notes with them. So here's the process it all starts by reading. I have subscriptions I pay for and a river of News I. Get the subs come from things that are on the cover art for this episode, different premium places like the Washington. Post the Atlantic New York, times, the Irish Times tipperary live and several others. As I read through these flows of information. alantic things sometimes, the annotations are very simple. I just saved instant paper to an instant paper allows me to annotate or make notes or to grab pieces of content and make it into distilled nuggets of information. So I read online and I had this one tap sharing-mechanism work wherever I read sometimes I read on the kindle and the kindle is interesting because not only do the books I get. Appear on kindle. But I can email to my kindle were documents from emails from student essays from variety of sources. Were documents become readable in the kindle, which means they can be annotated and shared on the kindle. These processes of reading. And annotating for sharing and up in a place called read. Wise. Wise is clever. Application hasn't API and it allows me to that API and through another service called hypothesis to share stuff that I see through the chrome web browser into the service called read wise and then read wise allows me to push out A. Piece of information, premium information to students or to other readers an instant paper does the same thing allows me if I like a piece of content for that content show up as one of the ten pieces of content shared through the instant paper out. These things are collaborative, for example. If I'm using. If I'm using the same annotation technology is another person. Hypothesis is one of those sharable piece of technology. I can see people annotating and making notes some things they find online. The hypothesis chrome extension allows you to. Grab a piece of text graph, put a note or two next to it, and then to share that in a public space, which could see collaborate and share. In fact, there's a whole plug in mechanism with case studies for blackboard and for muddle. And for other online virtual learning networks where students can collaborate and go down through a reading list of content where they're asked to annotate and share information about this pieces of content. I'm thinking about doing that with my. Next semester of students but it might just be easier to have them read recommended documents that I share inside of Microsoft teams as well as inside one drive system or asked to respond to different prompts. And then to through their response, I get a collaborative input to the thing they looked at. That have to the item that they're collaborating with. Hopefully by the time, my students get to the fourth year their education with me. They'll have a more sophisticated way using chrome extensions or annotations on the fly through a very smart web. Browser. At this moment in time I'm happy to say that what I'm doing is taking and leveraging paid content that I see through my news feeds or through ino reader, a feed reader I use. That I can see that stuff. Save those pieces of information that I went to rise, and then I can share what I want to annotate and what I want to mark up. I like the processes behind the scenes I like how I'm doing it with read wise. I like how it works with instant paper I like how the annotations work of hypotheses I like how the simplicity of kindle or the annotations with a standard book and a yellow highlighter work when extracted through office lens. All these things are possible and
"the washington post" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"To be involved in this, you're talking about one of the most like terrible people of the last, however long you to go last decade right as far as like what he was accused of, and now you're attaching that to this. All of that was like holy unfair, and again the merits of the article alone there there we need to talk about the systematic harassment, sexual harassment and sexism that exists in these spaces. Spaces but damn if they didn't mess up the process by letting people spin on it for a couple of days, and the reporters who put out like Yo Yo dog I'm hearing some stuff. It's not good like it really was problematic I know and I hate that part because I think twitter as great as it is can be a detriment. Social Media in general can be a detriment and I don't want to. Over hyped isn't the the proper word for it because that diminishes what happened to these women in this article, which is horrible, and they shouldn't have had to have dealt with that on a day to day basis, and they shouldn't be crying in the bathroom at lunch. Break with others who are going through the same thing, and they shouldn't have to be fending off sexual advance after sexual advance via text message. In fear of trying to keep their job, but at the same time you're point like you're reading things on twitter like is he actually a friend of Jeffrey Epstein? was he a part of that circle? That's crazy and that's unfair that so many people's name got dragged through the mud because people were just creating things to create it while we waited and that's that's the detriment of social media and I hate that for some people who yesterday and the day before probably were days of hell for them of wondering. What is this Washington? Post expose GONNA. Be About am I included. I have no idea I mean the whole thing I thought. Wasn't good. I didn't think it looked good from the optics I, thought that it was handled poorly to say the least and I think a lot of people were fueling the handling of it, just from spouting off on their twitter, and that to me was unfair for a lot of people, and it minimized ultimately and I. Don't think he asked intention at all in ended up minimizing the story, because it couldn't live up to the expectations that people had created in their mind. It's kind of like when you read a book and you picture who plays the main characters in your head, and then that gets turned into a movie and you're like no man that's. Like that's not how it went down in my head, and it can't ever live up to the story you created in your brain, and the problem is. This is already an issue Katie as I'm sure you well know as many of our female colleagues in this space know that already gets minimized or already told relax. You're no fun. Just go justin joke yeah. Don't rock the boat. Oh I thought you were. Were Cooler than that, and then you're sitting there, questioning your own judgment going and my being gaslight right now or maybe I am overly sensitive. Maybe this is just how it goes. Hey, I want to be accepted in the space. Maybe I do need to just go along and like if you think that that's not something happens regularly for women in the space. Just scroll through twitter man just scroll through twitter. Twenty four hours and look at all the women who have identified with what those fifteen women talked about in the Washington Post piece. We are going to be joined by Liz. Clark of the Washington Post, one of the two articles along with will hobson who put together this expose on the rampant sexual harassment in the Washington football franchise offices as Katie alluded to many of the people who have been singled out and named the peace have since been fired or left I believe the play by play guy that you mentioned announced yesterday that he was quote unquote retiring from the team. How convenient what it's been! A good run is what he said. What claiming I'm? Sure he's got many many other things that he'll be focusing his attention on now. So yeah we're going to talk more about this on the Dan Le Batard show. We have a lot of other things to get to ESPN released list of the best arena height music. and. We have some problems with it. We were I mean come on like come on, get it. If you get a chance, subscribe to ESPN daily. It was put out in the ESPN daily email. It's a great compilation, but come on Katie I know you were like. Oh, I. Know I actually wrote them down because I'm this invested in Georgia? Take any notes on the Washington Post article, but she has many many on the hype Music List Espn daily put out. Hello.

"the washington post" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"I tell you what I appreciate. The air's that Stugatz on the regular. Because it really lowers the bar, the expectations for what we have to do when we fill in. This is the Dan Le Batard show here on ESPN radio filling in for Dan Le Batard. It's me. Jen Ladda filling in for stugatz. It's Katie George. WHAT'S UP Katie? Should I guarantee mistakes right off the bat just to be my best Stugatz today JEN do. Absolutely I. Feel like it makes the audience and the listeners feel like we get the show 'cause. That's a big thing here, right? Oh, it's a huge thing I learned that the hard way I. Saw I saw I saw your approval ratings. Now you have. To have a better approval rating than I had with Peter Burns it just put it that way. We got a pretty stack show for everybody out. There at lots of things to talk about. We're one week away from the MLB. Season July. Thirtieth is the start of the NBA season. NHL Season starts on August first. We're going to hear from Emily Kaplan. ARE ESPN NHL reporter a little bit? Bit later in the show there was a mind blowing expose sports illustrated, put out about former NFL Kabeer Bajour via Mila and if you haven't gotten a chance to read it, it's all over twitter three parts a read. You've got to really invest some time into it. Maybe take your phone into the bathroom with you, because I know that you're going to spend a lot of time in there. You might get through appeaser to. And the author of that Kaelin Taylor is GonNa. Join US later in the show as well. I mean. This is a deep dive into some very bizarre stuff, so I'd love to hear the process. She went through for that article. We're also going to hear from Liz Clark of the Washington Post she one of the authors of that expose. The scandal story that broke yesterday that everyone was waiting for from dream job to nightmare about more than a dozen women who alleged sexual harassment and verbal abuse by former team employees. In The Washington football franchise so obviously. That was something that dominated talk last night. As the article dropped around. What five PM, Eastern Time Katie. What was your reaction to that story? So I'll be curious to see what you think of this, and so on Tuesday. Right was the initial date that it was supposed to drop. The Washington Post said they had. You Know Earth shattering information that was going to be bigger news than the Washington redskins deciding to change their names, so I thought Oh my gosh, what is GonNa? Come out about the Washington redskins because this is going to be huge. And then they pushed it back to Thursday, and all of this was circulating around Daniel Snyder specifically. Right Daniel Snyder. This is going to be damning information about Daniel Snyder and say what you want about the guy. No, he doesn't have a lot of fans in his corner, and supporters. I think the Internet sometimes is a detriment. Jen because I think over hyped what was supposed to come out and I'm not diminishing the horrify. Items that were explained in this in detail in this expose of what women went through them, but I have to be honest. I was expecting Daniel Snyder to be a part of those allegations personally jen and when he wasn't. For all the people who said this is going to be information leading up that he is going to make him half to sell the team. He's not gonNA. have any other option than selling the team when I read the article twice I don't know if it's the necessary information. To. Make enforce. Daniel Snyder to actually have to sell it because he wasn't personally included in the allegations now what went on in the culture? The cultures messed up and the culture needs to change without a doubt and what happened to those women when they were going to do their jobs and the things that they had to think about while trying to perform and make sales. That's awful to me and it seems like they had a lot of bad eggs. That thought that kind of. Activity and that inappropriate behavior was condoned I'm glad they got rid of a couple of those people and they decided to leave Alex Santos. Richard Man being one Larry Michael the voice of the Redskins for so long, but I, don't know Jin and I'm curious to hear what you think if that's the kind of allegations, because he's personally included in them to force him to sell the Washington redskins. I! Think you make a great point in that. The article doesn't exist in a vacuum, right. It didn't exist Solo. It wasn't by itself. It was affected by all of the things you mentioned. which was this idea? It's been affected by the fact that this team has been in the news recently for being you know having this racial nickname and pressure to change it and the sponsors that have pulled their support of the team. If they didn't change the name like all of that was in there as well, it's not as though this was just like arbitrary team that no one. One was thinking about that. No one was talking about that hadn't been accused already of having a questionable culture right so then like you said it's supposed to drop early and people are like. When's it coming? We're all like salivating. Because we love scandal. We love the dirty details. We love like reading all of that like salacious stuff and the problem with that is exactly what you said when we weren't fed it away when it didn't come when we wanted to write this. Like immediate gratification society that we live in I, want it now. Give it to me right now. Then we were able to imagine and create ideas about what it could be right and so like. That was the biggest issue I saw. Leading into the release of this piece, which as you state has merits all on his own. It's a topic that needs to be discussed.

Pentecostal denomination this call jet church of god in Christ many many years ago I worked for the kojic church I was a church development director and the cold your church has a rich history a proud history a proud tradition of being spirit led well according to The Washington Post copy nineteen has killed multiple bishops and pastors at least a dozen to up to thirty bishops and prominent clergy have all died of cold nineteen within this one denomination that is a deep hit to the leadership when The Washington Post decided to look into this story officials from the from the denomination did not return requests for comment but media reports and interviews with experts who study the denomination show the depths of leaders in states including Michigan New York and Mississippi those are regions where the church of god in Christ is prominent and the corona virus has hit hard I remember pastors deal with people pastors deal with people among those who died after contracting the virus our first assistant presiding bishop Philip eight Brooks a legendary preacher are from Detroit Detroit was hit a number of was hit as well R. bishop Timothy Scott I am many others I mean the list is long and I would imagine that if you actually do a deep dive into every black denomination you will find a similar trend here's what's interesting now that we know black people are suffering the most from Colbert nineteen exposure all of a sudden the government wants to reopen you gotta laugh not cry up the White House adviser I mean this guy is actually a White House adviser a White House adviser said that stay at home protesters and this is a direct quote stay at home protesters all the modern day Rosa Parks this infuriates me White House adviser would say stay at home protesters we're talking about the white guys with guns stay at home protesters all the modern day Rosa Parks according to a White House adviser yes four zero four eight nine two two seven zero three they get any conversation today four zero four nine two two seven zero three and of course trump is on the bandwagon so he's tweeting things like liberate Virginia and save your second amendment it is under siege that's what trump is tweeting and he's tweeting there's about many states so he he's telling people to actively defy the laws of their state during a health emergency that is what the president of the United States is still liberate Virginia and save your second amendment because it is under C. four zero four nine two two seven zero three but once again the question must be B. acts the mansard is it time for states to do their slow rollout is it time some places are now mandating that you wear a face mask in public or you could be penalized is that the way to go four zero four nine two two seven zero three so since we know much more about the corona virus we still have a lot more to learn but we know much more than we did a month ago here's one thing we know for sure black communities are disproportionately affected by Kobe nineteen it has yet to receive proper credence from those shouting reopen America I mean I have never heard at one press conference somebody asked the president or one of his cronies who saying we open we open we open I have not heard anyone say well wait a minute what about black people because obviously it is ripping through the black community in a way that's a great so deadly more so than all the communities what about black citizens what about black Americans what about black voters should they be concerned about you pushing to re open so quickly what their communities are more impacted by the reality of gold in nineteen I just need one damn day in that White House press corps just one day as a matter of fact don't even give me a whole day give me one hour you know what I don't even need a hold I'll give me five damn minutes that's all I five minutes in that White House press corps will be the most epic five minutes they have ever had why is it that no one is asking the question contextualized based on black suffering I guarantee you this white males one more impacted by Colbert nineteen that anybody else in America that would be a question if white females were more impacted my cold nineteen that anybody else in America this would be a question four zero four nine two two seven zero three what say you four zero four eight nine two two seven zero three listen it's simply a body is narrative it is five years in our treatment of each other this is what it is and that's why it's important to acknowledge without acknowledgement there can be no change you can't change what you fail to acknowledge now this is not all about race but race is a factor because you know and I know that if white males only at this particular issue

"Like you know one degree higher and the whole thing goes doubt and in some parts of Italy. Some cities has already gone down. So you know things have to get a whole lot better before you can before you can relax one of the things that I wanted to ask you about. Because you've really had an interesting career You've done what you've done at the post prior to that you worked out a Pittsburgh But for the purposes of this podcast which is sort of At its core sports media. Podcast you once covered the nationals. And I wonder if You know and I wonder if as you're sort of you know in twenty twenty you're covering this this pandemic this global crisis in Rome ever sort of just sort of think about your days as covering the nationals baseball sort of like it must be surreal for you in once upon a time you were just a baseball writer Like many colleagues and people that I know and then sort of fast forward you know whatever twelve years later. You're you're you're covering this. Life must have seemed a lot easier. When you're only sort of thinking about Stephen Strasburg and some of that other stuff right well I mean it's there's literally it's no more surreal to think back on twelve years ago doing that than it is the thing look back on two months ago just living. My Life. Here They both feel like a lifetime ago but covering sports. And you know I. I think you've talked to other sportswriters at the post who've who've changed Like Chelsea Jane's was was one of my successors on the beat and she's covering the campaign. Now the post the post has been a place where you can kinda jump from one topic to the other and I think it's I think it's healthy because off the basically the muscles of doing journalism or not that different from topic to topic but but surely when you're covering sports especially baseball you're writing a lot of stories quickly and an in a pandemic that actually it helps like most of the stuff I'm doing now is not on deadline but I remember when I was just really a year. Two out of the baseball beat In Two thousand eleven must've been Kim Jong Il died and he died like thirty thirty minutes before our newspapers deadline. And I had I had that much time or his death was announced that more accurately and I had thirty minutes to put a story together and and it worked it worked totally why I do not sweat it because I'd done that exact thing so many times hundreds of times during the previous few years and I thought you know the all. These games stories At Nats Park at twelve thirty. A M definitely led led to that And still those muscles haven't completely gone away. Which which I'm thankful for in you know as as as a non sportswriter now looking back. It's actually easier to sports now because I'm not in the locker room. I'm really much fan now so I I was watching the nets getting up in the middle of the night during the world. Series run now. They're probably be defending champs until two thousand twenty one very true. Who's your favorite person in baseball to cover as a subject as a subject? Oh Wow of course we know. Does these answers are always laying because the best the best people to talk to are always the ones who are scrubs who have forgotten who are one. Step away from like triple A. The those are the ones that always had the time for me. So I I'm trying. I'm trying to think I don't have a favorite but But the teams that I covered were were terrible or dreadful I think one of the teams one hundred and two games in another had lost one hundred and three. This is the reason. They got Harper strasburger in the opposite order in back to back years because they were the worst team in baseball two years in a row so I must have watched sixty people throw their last pitcher or take their last swing in a uniform because a lot of several players ended up following me to Japan and Korea. Yeah I'm looking right now on the The two thousand eight Washington nationals man. I forgot how horrible they were. Fifty nine and one zero to manny. Acta was the manager. Well Jim Bowden now. The athletic was the general manager. I mean Chico. This was a horrible team. I mean these guys. This is a bad year. Aaron Moon now the now. Yankees manager was the first Baseman on that team. While I forgot about this team. That's crazy and was a pretty good guy he was he. Was You know most of these lucid these guys were were nice end and would give you the time and they were lovely in spring training but then by April twenty third. You know there's three and eighteen. They're season's over and and everybody knows it and you just have to play out the string and you're there writing and documenting the next one hundred and thirty games one hundred which are going to be losses and by the end of the season. It's just a really nasty nasty environment by the way Tim. Reading the Ace of the staff. That really tells you everything you need to know right. There from reading ended up playing in the Korean Professional League. Jeez well well there you go listen. Chico. I wish you Obviously you and your family. Nothing but the best of health You're doing incredibly important work in very very stressful times And a lot of people appreciate it even if your isolated their trust me. I'm reading. There's a lot of people who are reading Chico. Harlan is the Rome Bureau chief for The Washington Post. He joined that paper in two thousand and eight And as I just said it before he was a Washington nationals beat writer. He then spent four years at the papers. East Asia Bureau chief focusing on Japan and the Korean Peninsula prior that he worked in Pittsburgh And I think maybe even in Sydney for a little bit so he's had a really really interesting career. Check out his His work at the Post. Because I really think it's sort of a precursor of Of what is what is what is coming in. What is here now in the United States?

Thanks so much for joining me today on the sports media podcast. Absolutely thank you Richard. All Right Chico The number of things I want to get to but first and foremost Just how are you Urine Rome you're in the middle of a country that has been sort of the center of this pandemic. How are you? What is your health at the moment? And what is your day to day? They can give us a sense of it. Yeah I mean thanks for asking its I. Surely you know. Have nothing to complain about In terms of my own health next to next to anybody else. I'm not sick I I've been working quite hard. And and that has brought you know. Some stresses as well as some Adrenalin and it has been it has been good to have have a sense that I'm doing something important end and the work feels almost like the only the only part of my life that is semi normal. Like I know I know how to cover a big story and and really be dedicated. You know sixteen hours a day to something. This may be a little longer than other peaks but at least writing the stories you know. This is the only part of Of My day to day. That hasn't flipped upside down. The hard part has been simply being cooped up and and seeing the country or my city. Really really atomised and be a place that you know in the most literal way feels like it has been like dehumanized. There's nobody around anymore and not for any reason other than just an epic tragedy So for a while. There were stresses even with my own family should my wife and and baby go back. This was a few weeks ago before. There was a lockdown. We were trying to you know like so many other people compute whether other places might be safe for them what they could get better help from from my wife's parents which because I've been working hard They've kind of been on their own anyway. We decided to to stick together and to Until void what could be a long term separation given the way countries are kind of raising their borders. Right now and so. It's really been the three of US inside of this apartment for For the last couple of weeks I've been I've been really working most most hours of the day. But but by phone and it's been surreal existence inside of this apartment trying to document the crazy things that are happening in Italy Chico. Could you give us a sense of just like where you are in the city for people? If probably they'll be people listening who've never been digitally let alone Rome but just sort of geographically. Give us a little bit of a sense of where you are and perhaps even in relation to the to the worst places in the country right now sure okay so in terms of Rome. I am in the city centre a little bit close to the river. Maybe the best landmark would be coupled fury which is nor under normal times kind of a gross touristy market and now there is nobody there. The hardest hit parts of Italy are to the north area of Lombardy which includes Milan. And I'm not I can't give you like a kilometer estimate but by bullet train. It's about three three and a half hours and and so. Italy's small enough that that the things that happened there surely have been internalized here and in the Rome hasn't been as hard hit. It has more than a thousand confirmed cases and the behavior is if it has one hundred thousand because when you when you do go outside you see people who are suspicious of everybody. They're all wearing masks if they're going to the grocery store that wearing they're wearing surgical gloves and and I think for a lot of cities. The the behavioral changes don't come until until the horror has kind of arrived and I keep telling myself maybe wishful wishfully but that Rome is perhaps a little safer than than other major cities of the world because it's one of the few places where where people change their behavior before the crisis hit true emergency level CHICA. What are the challenges of reporting the story right now for you there a couple number one is truly just staring the the horror of this in the face every day? There's been there have been some times when it is hard to wake up knowing that you're going to be on the phone with doctors or even just on on twitter looking at videos from these hospitals in thinking about it because it is it. You're you're basically writing about death in your writing about people who aren't getting care you writing about Sort of loneliness that comes on families that are losing people because funerals aren't allowed because if someone goes to the hospital With the virus and dies they are not having contact with anybody. They're being being buried by a priest and by a funeral director and their families are under quarantine. It's it is really kind of extraordinary suffering and it's so widespread and and so my job is to be in that world remotely but but still be there And and that part though it's it feels really vital I wouldn't say that it's it's easy. And it's not comparable to what I normally do journalism wise and then and then the logistical side is. The is the second part which just because you're a combination of reasons. The government restrictions on movement the fact that I want to be in writing about different places from one day to the next fact worried about my own. Family's safety I haven't been moving around really much at all. I haven't traveled outside of Rome and phone. Interviews are not as good as being on the ground and and for now. That is what I've been trying to do to get by but the the sort of value for being on the ground you know if you're in a place for a few days now that's not a three day trip. That's that's a seventeen day trip because you have to add in the quarantine and then all of a sudden if something else happens in another place. You can't be there so I think for journalists everywhere. They're trying to figure out. How do you cover this? And and what is worth the risk I I haven't seen much on the ground journalism in Italy and.

"To our top story the war in Afghanistan. It's basically the grey's the reason that to me of wars. We all thought it ended years ago but somehow it still going strong and now with the war in its eighteenth year. We're learning for the first time. How how badly Americans have played tonight? Newly released documents raise serious questions about whether the American people were lied to about the progress of the war in Afghanistan Stan the longest in our history a massive new trove of confidential documents obtained by The Washington Post reveals. US officials systematically lied to the American American public about the Afghan war virtually since the beginning eighteen years ago the objective to conceal widespread fears that America was losing the rosy picture that's been painted by political and military leadership. I is not the real picture on the ground yes for eighteen years. The American government government has been painting a rosy picture telling Americans. Everything has been going great in Afghanistan when in reality it's a total show. It's basically the technique every refiling couple users on instagram. Hashtag date neither Hashtag couple. Owl's sense like don't your phone now while if you smile so shitty. Yeah I wouldn't take so many pictures you Dick I hate you I hate you more. Let's do one more in portrait mode but yes we're now. Learning from this bombshell show Washington Post expose that. The government manipulated every detail about the war in Afghanistan. They use numbers. They couldn't back up. They height small successes when they knew the big picture. It was getting worse and they even try to spin suicide bombings as a sign of success. which is confidence if nothing else like making tinder profile? That says you know. I'm a catch because I have my own room in my Mama's basement swiped rights now swell unusual for governments to try and make things seem like they're going well in the war when they aren't but what makes the story even more grievous was that they lied about even having a plan.

J. disagreement a service about one of horror which is central conclusions on the origins of the rush investigation discord could be the prelude to a major Frasier within financial law enforcement on the controversial question of investigating a presidential campaign bar has not been swayed by horror which is rationale for concluding that the FBI had sufficient basis to open an investigation on July thirty first twenty sixteen my friends this is the Achilles heel of the whole situation what have I been saying to you now for years mother didn't even touch that's why how did this whole thing get started where did this come from we're to believe it they just happen to have people near Papadopoulos but Papadopoulos happen to say thing again please what idiots they had set up to get Papadopoulos before this conversation he allegedly had with Downer in a bar in the U. K. please Papa doc is running for Congress by the way yes that's what they they believe that they want us to believe that bar knows this is going to be the critical question there will be all this information presented in people who are very invested in this will tell you they will feign stupidity they'll fan an abject lack of judgment and they will say to you that the Russia collusion investigation was a duly predicated investigation from the start meeting that there was something other than political malice as the real motivation for looking into all of this bars going to look at this according this report I believe in say not so fast going to investigate a presidential campaign based on what a very low level eight visor remember of the campaign says to a guy in a bar in the U.

"Bongino go today all right Joe partly so there is a according to The Washington Post and listen folks. I am applying the Bongino rule. This came out last night. I am waiting before I determine the authenticity of this piece and how how much of it is fake news. How much is propaganda? And how much of it is real. But the genesis of this Washington Post piece. Is this the gist of initiate. Say precision definitely matters here is that there's a fight brewing in the DOJ between the attorney. General Bill Bar. And the Inspector General. Michael Horowitz who is is investigating the FBI's behavior in the spying scandal on Donald Trump and the gist of it is that bar believes the FBI investigation wasn't predicated correctly. In other words they shouldn't have been spying. On trump and Horowitz. This is according to the Washington Post nine Horowitz's report they're suggesting suggests that the FBI investigation was was pretty was predicated. In other words. They may have screwed things up the fact patterns ugly but the FBI had enough information to start this. That is not true. They did not have enough information to start this. Check out the piece of listen. I put this up in the show notes. I'm hesitant to do it but it's important because this is one of those stories that even no excuse me it's The Washington Post it's A. You should read it because there are some nuggets notice that the author is one of the spy gate media players Devlin Barrett as well Who shows up in the text came the headline of the pieces? Washington Post Bar disputes key. Inspector General Finding about FBI's Russia investigation. What is going on here again? The DOJ this conflict is barred does not believe according to this piece that the spying operation on on the FBI the FBI was conducting was properly predicated based on a set of facts that would indicate spying necessary. Apparently according to the GEE report suggests otherwise now a couple of things here. Let's go right to the report and read their works. Why can explain to you? What's really going on and again why you haven't been wasting your time here for two years? Check this out from the Washington Post piece quote Attorney General Bill Bars privately. Contended that Horowitz. The I G does not have enough information to to reach the conclusion that the FBI had enough details in hand at the time to justify opening such a probe. So this is a bombshell. Arielle statement in and of itself. Hold like that up there. So we're suggesting that bar saying listen you don't know enough to conclude that the F. B. I. was appropriately spying on Donald trump. They go on and the Washington Post piece Barr argues that other. US agencies agencies such as the C. A. May hold significant information. Joe that could alter Horowitz this conclusion Asian on that point according to people familiar with the matter who spoken the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations. What.

"Questions from The Washington Post that have yet to be answered again we don't know Giuliani's really don't know the lady's role we don't know whether trump directly ordered any of this Washington post in jest if you will he was acting on his own volition his motives are unclear we know that two of his business associates were recently indicted on campaign finance charges had ties Ukraine and see department officials have testified they may feel threatened by anti corruption efforts US diplomats were leading again some Ukrainian officials okay well let's say in most circumstance let's say that there is an accusation made that these Ukrainian officials were trying to make time with the trump administration by using Giuliani as a final for information and they're finally damaging information about Biden's make you crane about corruption vigilante to trump does that implicate trump or trump motive not really it mostly raises questions about Giuliani a fourth question is did you crane know why its military a noble office meeting were being withheld well in order for them to know that presumably they would have to coordinate directly with trump so even answering this question doesn't answer the fundamental question which is what was trumped motive what was from content I was in a Gordon someone was misinterpreting front than anyone over Ukraine and said we want Biden well without showing that someone was told by trump to go get Biden maybe that someone who is acting on his own after the fight met because he is trying to forecast the feelings of the president of the United States The Washington Post suggests someone testified he told the Ukrainians they were likely to get their eight release when they announced an investigation into Democrats again likely to get there a release means that he's speculating acting US ambassador in Ukraine bill Taylor was in close contact with the Iranians he testified they knew what was being asked of them and they didn't want to do it he said I think it was becoming clear to Ukrainian set to get this meeting they wanted they have to commit to pursuing these investigations what do you create new is being forced into something will go a long way to confirm a quid pro quo but Democrats are actually backing off of this proposition because they don't like the idea they're gonna have to actually prove the elements of bribery instead they think that the president's attempts to simply hold back the taxpayer aid for unspecified reasons could theoretically be enough Jim Himes Democrat of Connecticut said extortionate require you give me this I'll give you that kind of quid pro quo it simply requires using your muscle to get something that you don't have a right to okay but you have an established what exactly he doesn't have a right to yet or that he was a plain muscle in order to get that thing if I if I tell you that I'm not going to pay you until you give me that hamburger that's all the free market transaction if I tell you I'm not gonna pay you into the off my wife that is a very different sort of transaction so we actually have to determine what kind of transaction this is and the question is really the one which is why did trump with all the in the first place and what was the point what was drums issue would be great and again I think that the answer here is kind of obvious right I don't think that from there's been hiding the ball trump thanks that Ukraine is hiding the crowd strike server ratings are hiding hello Sir I don't know why barrel I can read too much into war to put together some weird conspiracy theory and and now he's been out there proclaiming that somewhere buried in the forest in Kiev is is some hello recalling server they took it from a bathroom they these fluid over to Kiev they took it out of the force and they buried it under a dosha or something it's like it's but I don't I don't get it okay but that was from the police he also believes correctly view crayons were working at the Hillary Clinton campaign twenty sixteen that part is actually true it was reported by political also he believes in something corrupt is going on with Teresa and biting and he believes that that impacted the twenty sixteen election because obviously if Ukrainians were working hand in glove the Obama administration get him and covering up for the mines as a problem my soul is so is all of those things are any of those beliefs wrong sure I think the crowd's writing is completely unsubstantiated thing the hunter Biden Joe Biden thing so far does not have proper evidence actually substantiate the allegations but is it illegal or impeachable for the president to want things that he wants investigate investigated not necessarily may not really not much what you're talking about is the president really attempting to leverage American foreign aid on behalf of his electoral results purely purely not as a side effect of foreign policy purely because he wanted Biden out and that part I honestly like I don't actually see that in terms activity I am trying to people I believe me when I said is obviously then you shouldn't Randy because vectors I am a conservative yeah I'm a Republican but the fact is I don't actually see objectively the trump has ever had the level of internet is there to do anything but I don't think he's ever had the level of intent to putting to eat a hamburger I think it is half accident when you to him well I I really I guess the idea here is that from like a laser beam focused in on Joe Biden then he was like I'm a withhold military aid to get Joe Biden is Joe Biden is just so dangerous and I've been following mysteries nothing like a hawk or alternatively he has thoughts and he vomits that thoughts whenever he is asked about a particular topic which one sounds more like come to you thought vomit trump for like a laser beam forty chassis planning out every move in the valleys admiral Thrawn from the from the
