President Trump pardons Michael Flynn
"Now part of his former aide, Michael Flynn, which is a reward to Flynn for being loyal. Amber Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI way knew that he was having these phone calls it was supposed to be having he got fired after only being in the administration for the 24 days. Something like that. So which is, uh, to Scaramucci is so Flynn is is gone. And then the Miller investigation kicks up and they're like, Oh, well, we got Flynn. I mean, he was lying to us. So then they used him for Basically the kind of leveraged him in order to to bring out more information. And then all of a sudden, the Justice Department said. You know what? Mueller? Let's limit the scope of your of your investigation. You can't follow the breadcrumbs to anything else that might happen, so it just turned into a real You know, just a real mess. You know, Flynn was supposed to be Sentence. The Justice Department said to the judge. We want to drop the charges dropped the charges. He just pled guilty. Yeah, but we don't want to charge him. And the judge said, No, That's not how this works. So how any of this works? And so that was that was being hung up in court, and Trump just came outside. Dad. He's off the hook. I worry about the trump phenomenon. Not because of Michael Flynn mean Michael Flynn will score some gig with some, You know, Trump pissed. He's got too much money in some industries somewhere, whatever. Security consultant. International affairs, blah, blah, blah. I'll get something Worry about the trump the trump phenomenon. We had a gentleman who called us earlier in the show, and he was He was sort of the same mind set is I am And that is It's not Trump It's It's the playbook that Trump is writing, or rather resurrected from past leaders, not American leaders. Here. You've got a charismatic Well known figure. And I mean, he figured if we blew up the world of politics in United States, but he tapped into what is a psyche that we've seen play out historically. That ends up hitting neighbors against neighbors and races against races and it divides the country into the haves and the have nots even further, and he knew this. And he used it to his advantage, and he got rid of anyone that was willing to challenge his power like John Kelly. Like Rex Tillerson, who somehow ended up looking like a good guy by the time that he was done James Mattis, Dan Coats Sally Yates, who I just mentioned selling, it's got fired because she wasn't willing to Theo defend them. The Muslim ban Right? Uh huh. Trump eventually filled his inner circle. With under an unqualified loyalists. He was He was trying different people along the way. John Bolton ons. I make the best hires Bolton. Get him out of your fire That guy because even these people Who Were power hungry enough to take jobs with Trump. Couldn't compromise their own morals so much that they followed him. He finally is able wrapped himself up in people like Manoogian. Who are Willing to do whatever it takes. To do whatever he wants. And then he wouldn't play golf. The president's schedule was
What do we know about Joe Bidens cabinet?
"Us president donald trump was never going to react to losing the two thousand and twenty election gracefully us. President donald trump has never reacted to anything gracefully as we go to air trump continues to insist that he's crack. Legal team are going to unveil conclusive evidence of monstrous voter fraud any day. Now although on current form trump's personal attorney rudolph giuliani clearly. Clearly voter fraud easily. Provable seems just as likely to unveil the heron he has appointed his deputy however earlier this week trump or whoever priced his sweaty phone from his. Tony hands grudgingly tweeted that the us general services administration the body which oversees presidential transitions should do what needs to be done. This will make life somewhat. Easier for president elect joe biden. Who will now have access to government funding office space senior officials and intelligence briefings among other things. It also means that he can name his cabinet with increasing confidence. Very possibly because president-elect biden has wanted to emphasize legitimacy in the face of the incumbents ongoing tantrum vis-a-vis the election results. We've learned a lot quite early about the administration. He intends to lead from january twentieth. Is a team that will keep our country and our people safe and secure. It's a team that reflects the fact that america is back ready to lead the world not retreat from it once again. Sit at the head of the table. We will come presently to who. And what is in biden's cabinet but at least as significant things being as they recently have been is who and what is not biden has not at least as of this broadcast awarded any government position to any obvious crooks crepes clowns ding bats. Yahoos griffis spivs cracks. He's own ghastly children or they idiot husbands but wild president-elect biden does have the advantage of a low bar to climb over. It doesn't mean that he's choices are excused scrutiny especially those pertaining to foreign policy on the grounds that. Us foreign policy often has a way of becoming of the people's domestic reality president. Trump's first secretary of state was to put it charitably unorthodox unorthodox choice. I'm not here to represent the united states government's interest. I'm not here to to did norm. Norma here to criticize it. That's that's not what i do. I'm businessman. Rex tillerson a career oil. Baron wants personally awarded. Russia's order a friendship medal by president vladimir putin president-elect to biden could scarcely have made a moral docs pick as america's top diplomat. And that's where the men and women of the state department foreign service officers civil service. That's where they come in. I've witnessed their passion their energy their courage up close. Antony blinken is a career foreign policy. Boffin who served as deputy secretary of state and deputy national security adviser during the presidency of barack obama with national security advisor trump also tried to be a bit left field. He named lieutenant. General mcmaster a serving soldier and actually not a ridiculous choice. Mcmaster is a smart serious and sensible man and all of those reasons fell out with trump. who replaced him with incorrigible. Neo-con head banger. John bolton who only looksmart serious and sensible when standing next to donald trump but this arrangement proved unworkable. Good to everyone. I'm paul affairs. We are coming on the air right now with our breaking news just moments ago. President trump tweeting that he has asked his national security adviser. John bolton to resign. Joe biden has named jake sullivan. I pledge to you. And to the american people that i will work relentlessly in service of the mission you have given us to keep our country and our people safe to advance our national interests and to defend our values who was the president-elect's national security adviser when the president-elect was vice president he also helped negotiate the nuclear deal with iran from which trump famously flounced trump's first. Us ambassador to the united nations was not a completely absurd choice former south carolina governor nikki. Haley he's second ambassador to the. Un was a completely absurd choice. Prodigious republican donut kelly craft. It could actually have been worse. Trump wanted to appoint his daughter. Ivanka but griped that he would be accused of nepotism. I've heard i've already vodka. I've heard how good woody vodka the people that know. There's nothing to do with nepotism. But i want to tell you the people that know no that evacuate would be dynamite about You know then. Be accused of nepotism if you can believe it right. This was accurate in as much as demanding money from bank tellers. Gunpoint can lead one to be accused of armed robbery. I want to say to you. America is back. multi-lateralism is back. Diplomacy is back.
The Current Situation In Iran: How Did We Get Here?
"Get to the terrifying news of the day President Trump essentially started a war with Iran when he ordered the assassination of Iranian major general. Qassem Soleimani who was the second most powerful figure in the Iranian government in response. What's around has vowed to retaliate against the United States in? US forces serving abroad. They've announced they'll be restarting their nuclear program. The Iraqi parliament voted to expel all US. US troops from Iraq and we've been forced to suspend our operations against Isis in Iraq. A meanwhile trump has responded by sending another three thousand five hundred troops to the Middle East and tweeting that if Iran retaliates quote we have targeted fifty two around the incites representing the fifty two American hostages taken by Iran many years ago some at a very very high level and important to Iran in the Iranian culture in those targets in Iran itself will be hit very fast and very hard targeting cultural sites is in fact an internationally internationally recognized war crime so lots to unpack here guys. Tommy let's start at the beginning. What do we know about so far why this happened? Y did trump make this decision. Well it depends on who you believe. Okay The Washington Post reported that Mike pompeo has been pushing trump to do this for many many months. And you know back in the day there were a bunch of senior officials in the trump administration like Jim Madison Rex. Tillerson the secretary of State. who were cautioning less caustic line on didn't want him to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal but over time all these reasonable got pushed out the right-wing hardliners are in in. And so here. We are now the stated reason that the trump administration did this is. They said that there was an imminent threat from Qasim Sumani from Shia militia groups in Iraq. That we're going to attack and kill. US forces Everyone who has seen that intelligence so far people quoted in newspapers people. I've talked to you said that that that does not hold water They've seen nothing that indicates there was some imminent threat. which would justify this strike legally or you know rationally so it just seems like something that a bunch of nuts wanted to do and it sounds like the sort of would immediately precipitated? The decision was the fact that there had been There was an attack that killed an American contractor in Iraq. Right this is the problem. Their explanation is all over the place. They one of these militia groups K. H. A. Shia militia group in Iraq killed a US contractor and wound servicemembers Kirk in response to that the US military hit a couple of sites associated with cage training sites weapons depots etcetera. You'd think that response was to killing. US contractor but then they went in killed Qassem Sumani and the justification for that was an an alleged imminent threat of another attack but even in the way pump goes on television lies obviously but even in the way. He's lying to be admitting that that's not totally true. Because they he's he said something along the lines of He was in the process of Planning attacks against American interests in two things about that one. That seems seems to have been a good part of his job for the better part of seconds. And the second part of that is He's not the actual. He's not pulling the trigger. He's wearing a suicide vest right. He's he's he's just a he's involved in the chain of command and one other part of this. No one has been able to answer at all is how does killing This figure prevent those attacks. Why aren't those? It was a tax more likely than not less likely to happen. Now that this person is it also seemed like there was reporting in the New York Times in Washington Post as well that in retaliation for the contractor you're being killed Trump ordered those set of strikes and then there were protests outside our embassy in Iraq. Yep and it said there. Apparently trump was watching those protests and then got really mad and decide that he wanted to do another strike. What is surprise that trump was watching cable TV and it made him angry? Although this time with this sounds like what happened with Mike Pompeo and and Secretary of Defense Esper- flew flew down to mar-a-lago and they pitched trump on a menu of ideas to further respond and the New York Times reported that on the menu was killing Soleimani money and that that very extreme proposal was only put on there to make the other ones look more reasonable and everyone was shocked when ultimately decided to do it but no one apparently push back. That was the craziest anecdote of all the New York Times that they were like. We'll just put this on as an extra so and and you know in some people may have seen this. But both the Bush administration and the Obama Obama Administration basically passed on this option at times as well because and the reason they did is because they were too concerned both administrations even the administration that took us to war in Iraq were concerned that this would escalate tensions in the Middle East into full blown. War Yeah Before we talk about what a stupid and dangerous move this this was tell me what do you think about the debate over whether it was legally justified whether we call it an assassination. And how much do these debates matter. I mean they matter if you care about international law so from that like it's a complicated case They're sort of like a common sense like lexical. What's in the dictionary definition of assassination? And then there's the definition of assassination which has been banned by the US government under executive orders that date back to like the when we used to give Fidel Castro explosive cigars and attempt to take political figures. You're not supposed to assassinate political figures period. the debate about in so like but Sola money's is a complicated case and that he's like the number two guy in their system but could force The organization he ran is a US designated terrorist organizations. There's no doubt that he helped build this play. This big role role in creating and supporting these militia groups in other malign acts across the globe basically. But there's no formal state of war between the US and Iran so there's no basis ACIS to target him on that level right like during the Iraq war the US targeted Saddam Hussein remember deck of cards the figures that they'd go after right so that the legality of Whether or not it was legal or justify takeouts lemani hinges on this intelligence. None of us can see these at all is about this imminence question got it but I mean I think reasonable people should say this was an assassination so I mentioned some of the consequences that are already playing out. What are some of the potential consequences that worry you the most both in short-term medium-term long-term Blake I worry about Iran on directly targeting forces in Iraq or Jordan or Kuwait or diplomatic posts in Lebanon. Worry about these Shia militia groups Lebanese Lebanon's Hezbollah came out today and said that their targets are going to be. US military personnel and they're not going to target civilians so when the head of Hezbollah sounds more reasonable than the present united United States on twitter. That's telling you something There's also these militia groups that might just sort of pay fealty to the money and not coordinate their actions with The Iranians and take action that way just because they're pissed and then there's also the fact that we had to stop the counter isis operations at a time when Isis has has had a bit of a resurgence because of our pull out from serious. There's a lot of ways this can manifest. How serious do you think the concerns are about cyber attacks against the United States or potentially a terrorist attack against the homeland? It's hard to know it's hard to know. I mean you look at what they've done what they set already about their nuclear program. They announced that they're no longer going to who abide by the enrichment restrictions in the JCP away in the Iran deal. But they said they're gonNA continue to Work with the IRA and allow them access test to inspect sites and things. So like in that instance if you're looking at that as a signal there sort of like tiptoeing out of the Iran deal. They're not like immediately announcing that they're enriching ninety eighty percent create a bomb so it seems like there's sort of an incremental response not some big blockbuster thing it seems that there's some F partout seem reasonable to international community to try a seem as though they are the victims in this absolutely. I think you're right well it we mentioned this yet but it does seem like the inciting incident for this entire crisis is trump ripping ripping up the Iran. Deal back in two thousand eighteen. Yes I mean I thought Ben Ben Rhodes on our pod. Friday walked through the timeline from the Iran. Trumping out of the Iran deal today. And I think it's a very compelling case he also wrote a piece for the Atlantic I mean I think we would be in a stronger position today. If the trump if Iran's nuclear program was being managed by a diplomatic agreement the fact that it's not everything more complicated well and I think an important point here is how you felt about the Iran. Deal in the first place whether it was a good deal or not Once the Iran deal was in place even trump's own Administration his own national security team. warned him not to get out of the deal real people who weren't necessarily fans of the deal the first place at once. We're in the deal. You shouldn't get out of the deal and he fucking did it. Anyway against the advice of most people in his administration and the whole global community in here we are by one of the reasons to non pull out was the fear that it might lead to this crisis. Right you John. Bolton now that he's left administration is very clear that his goal along has been regime. Change right so they pull out of your own nuclear deal where Iran agreed to all these restrictions on their nuclear program in exchange for economic relief from sanctions actions and instead of getting that relief they get more sanctions in an effort to crush their economy and lead to regime change. Of course over time. They're going to start lashing out. It shouldn't surprise anybody. So let's talk about how the administration is responding to all this Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was out on all the Sunday shows when he was asked by. Chuck Todd about the potential for around to retaliate. By killing Americans pompeo said quote. It may be. There is a little noise here in the in term but that America will be safer in the long run later. Donald Trump was asked the same question and and said quote. If it happens it happens. Tommy I know you have some Some strong feelings about pompeo Sunday show appearances because I was texting. You injured it before I melt down. I'm just curious what you guys think would have happened if Susan Rice said there was a little noise in the interim I saying like this those those statements both both from POMPEII. Oh and then trump saying if it happens it happens like this. President Obama would've been impeached within a day for saying that. I can't even believe there's there's such a there's such a glibness to it at but it is also it is. They're kind of whatever they're they're sort of cost playing as tough tough guys and so for them. They're they're trying to go out there
Don't Forget These Marketing Oldies But Goodies To Grow
"Today we are going to first first and foremost wish you a very happy new year. Today is twenty twenty. It's the first day of well the first day of the New Year and It's it's time to get inside inside the hustle so basically we are going to talk about a couple of things. These are oldies but goodies. To help you grow basically you know. oftentimes oftentimes Neil I. We're talking about the new things new tools. We talk about new new all the time but we want to bring it back and talk about the things that actually still work well and hopefully this will maybe give you a reminder on. Hey maybe that one idea that you had that maybe it was like an old idea. Maybe you come back and you try it right. So the first thing I'm going to recommend for my side is webinars so webinars are something that when you think about how click funnels built their business from zero to over a hundred billion dollars a year in revenue. They really built their business off the backbone of of Webinars webinars allow you to build trust at scale the allow you to drive traffic to put them into a funnel and you could sell products. You could sell bundles. You can sell courses. It's still something that's really effective. Even though attendance rates are still going down by tool I liked using when it comes. The webinars is live storm. And it's been great. I think it sped better than other webinar tools that I have used so Don't forget webinars another thing that I would do. And this is the Oldie as well but it will work so well in the New Year in two thousand and nineteen. I did this in two thousand eighteen as well a we really stepped on it in two thousand nineteen but there's nothing about this. We all have tons of content. KONTA marketings been around for ages. Now I myself only right four or five blog posts a month i. I don't have time to write too many more than that. In other words I blog once a week and my team on the other hand they update ninety pieces of three people full time time just update ninety pieces a month so they give you idea even though I'm writing for five. My team is updating over ninety. That's been one of the biggest traffic drivers for army in two thousand nineteen and I bet you it'll be thousand and twenty as well to give you idea in two thousand nine hundred eighty nine more than doubled my traffic all right so from I n texting and when I say texting I've talked about Messenger. I am also talking about just as a messenger. General if you look at Tokyo. Tokyo is basically. They're like a a taxi company. Basically they help you on there. They have a good. API that you can use while Tillerson publicly traded company under stock price has been rising over time. And if we look at Facebook Messenger when we when I spoke to Al For many chat previously a couple years ago. They're getting a million messages ages a day going through their platform. Now it's two hundred sixty six million messages per day so it's getting bigger and bigger and when you think about it people like that. They liked that touch. So you know recently the growth accelerator If you go to marketing school the live you can actually go learn more. But a lot of people will put in their number and then we'll set of attacks ask you if they have any questions about and some people will respond and that way we actually got You know from that point will actually try to get it a real conversation. Set up a call dead but you know it's just a really nice touch wood you're able to utilize techs and if you're GONNA US tax dry. Sending as I text their first name question marks like Eric Question Mark we found that gets the highest response and then wants to respond from there. Then you can follow up and then close him. But in addition to texting as Eric mentioned facebook messenger there's many chat mobile monkey I would also leverage push notifications. These are the type of channels that not too many people are talking about yet. You can bring people back to your site. The the opt-out rates are extremely high on both of them but the optin rates are very high as well. And it's another channel that you should be using in addition to email great of speaking evil. I think e mail is something that we should be calling out to because people tend to say. Oh look there's all these new channels but e mail. Is that one channel where nobody can take it away from you. You build up that email list and you market to those people And you can basically tight a dollar value for each subscriber that you have so the whole idea is all oh stuff that we talk about with. Seo We talk about with social we talk about. She's those things could actually be taken away from you but if you focus on you know we talk about authorizing of you're you're having some type of lead magnet that you can offer to people where they can take a resource for you but you build up the mls time you as long as that. That list is engaged. And you're you're providing more value constantly that what's going to happen is you're gonNA have a good engaged audience of people that will buy you. Whatever you publish something that is Worthy be a bike. Another thing that you can do is leverage tool so I believe tools is a new content marketing and to give you idea back in two thousand and three on my I ad agency CY. I create adding create. I bought a tool for thirty or forty dollars popped it on my website and it was a free. Seo Jio toll. I've done the same thing now with Uber suggests although I spent probably way too much money on a boat the time it was the most popular section of my sight. Now you don't have to go crazy like uber suggest anything like that. You can do a mortgage calculator quiz whatever it may be. You've got a Code Canyon. It's a site where you can buy tools and just pop them on your own side and white label. It's pretty easy flexible. It's dirt cheap. Sometimes you can get some of these tools for like under ten dollars dollars and on the more expensive maybe twenty thirty dollars but check that out. It's easy to add to your site in a great way to get more traffic. You'll typically find within like three to six months adding tool to your site. It should be one of the top ten pages even if you do little to no marketing
Nikki Haley's Audacious Bet
"With the politics lead internal White House concern about president. Trump's conduct conduct in a new book former ambassador to the United Nations. Nikki Haley recounts then Chief of Staff John Kelly and secretary of state. Rex tillerson telling her that when they were listed the president it was to save the country. Haley called their actions offensive and said they should've quit as C. N. N.'s Kaitlan Collins reports. This all comes as president in a trump and sister republicans. There's nothing to see here on a peach mint as the White House. Braces for the first public testimonies. President trump is attempting getting a new defense now claiming the transcripts of the testimonies behind closed. Doors are doctored by Democrats tweeting. Republicans should put out their own own transcripts despite his claim Republicans who were in the room having disputed the accuracy of the transcripts which witnesses spent hours reviewing doing that is truly an honor to come back to New York City in New York. I'm Veterans Day trump railed against the inquiry from behind his keyboard just days before the hearings hearings begin. Some Republicans are saying the call was wrong but not impeachable that the president asked for an investigation of a political rival. That's over the line. Ah But if he asked for an investigation of possible corruption by someone who happens to be political rabble. That's not over them. That's ignoring during trump's advice not to use that defense. The White House insists there in lockstep in terms of messaging our all on the same page but as trump and his allies is dispute the testimonies of current and former aides. Their accounts of a chaotic White House. Run by an impulsive. Present are being confirmed in her new memoir. Keke Haley Claims John Kelly Rex tillerson tried to recruit her to join them and undermining ignoring trump's commands in an effort to save the country instead. Instead of saying that to me they should have been saying that to the president not asking me to join them on their side bar plan. Kelly didn't refute Haley's claims claims but said if providing the president with the best and most open legal and ethical staffing. Advice is working against trump. Then guilty as charged Haley who may have political ambitions over own steered clear of criticizing trump as. She argued against his impeachment. Do I think that is good. I think it is not a good practice for us. Ever to ask a foreign country to investigate an American I don't but did the Ukrainians call for an investigation. No did the president hold up aid. He released the aid as he should. I don't see it as impeachable now. Dan in the next hour a federal judge is going to start hearing arguments about whether or not the chief of Staff Mick. Mulvaney can join that lawsuit that was filed by the former deputy national national security advisor essentially asking if they've to listen to house Democrats or the White House when it comes to testifying on Capitol Hill. Charlie government has signaled. He doesn't want to be able to join that lawsuit and instead follow his own but it's also notable for another reason. Mulvaney that she was staff was played a part in drafting that eight page letter from the White House instructing instructing White House officials not to comply with any requests from house Democrats. But now he seems to want to rely on the court's decision about that talk about entry. If we might get the decision from the court the top of the hour. Thank you so much for that report. Ceylan back with our panel. Let's talk about the big news that we know of EH ETA Nikki Haley Book which is That tillerson and John Kelly said we need to save the country. They're not denying the that that you said that. What is really remarkable is that I'm sure you all heard Iowa's heard at the beginning of the administration that there was sort of a pact among the top national security cabinet officials goals that they needed to stick together to do? Just this Nikki. Haley is confirming that that was accurate. Yeah she is but I also I mean it's very She's doing it for her own benefit. Right I mean she's really selling people out as far as I can tell I mean I think the assumption is that they were coming to her in confidence out of concern for things that were going on In the White House now she's turning around and using it to her benefit to try to curry favor with president trump. I think her argument that well if they had a problem they should have onto to president trump. How does she know they didn't? I mean I'm assuming. They probably did discuss their complaints with Donald Trump and if they had serious concerns and they went to her These are people that let's remember. Donald Trump held up as his sort of pre eminent appointments. I mean they were the crown jewels of his were generous administration situation right. The he was held up in these are the best people and now suddenly I you know I think I think I'm just saying I think if they had concerns. I think that that's the story Eh. It's not the the the fact that it'd be -actly yeah. She's trying to make it out that they're doing something wrong. Yeah I'm the good girl that you said that that is the story. Yeah story is we have her saying. And I'm not denying that the secretary of State that the chief of staff and maybe even others were were trying to protect the country from the present. They work for well done of this confirms what's been coming out in book after book after investigative piece there have been so many and only three three years of the presidency that showed a pattern of people trying to work around the president or simply ignoring his direct orders simply bleat taking the order and doing what they intended to do in the first place in effect running parallel presidency. This lines up beautifully with that story which which people denied at the time also confirms exactly what Rex Tillerson and John. Kelly have both publicly said John. Kelly recently said that if left to his own devices the president would do something that would amount to impeachable defenses. That's why I think what Nikki Haley is. Doing here is sort of going. After a low hanging fruit these are two people who left the administration with a really deteriorated raided relationship with President trump. Going after them sets her up to be a pro trump candidate in twenty twenty four twenty twenty eight when i Seoul still think that maybe someone like Jeb Bush can come in and be the. GOP Senator Nikki Haley realizes that she needs trump if she does at least ambitious exactly right. The Republican Party has changed so much having said that the Washington Post obtained Another part or probably the whole book but they wrote about another part of her book. Tuck where she said quote. She went privately to the president with her concern that he had seated authority to Russian president. Vladimir Putin after the two leaders leaders met in Helsinki in two thousand eighteen and with her objection to what she called. Trump's moral equivalents in response to a deadly White House white supremacists rather March Charleville the year before so. She's being protective of him. She won't get line to say that she's she's all in on trumpism but that she's he's calling out the things that almost everybody saw as you gotta be kidding me moment. I feel like I'm going to have a little bit of the defender of Nikki. Haley position here at the table bowl. which is I think I do appreciate that? The first year of the trump presidency. You can just like what it is that he was doing. He was new to this job right and he had a lot lot of people who are telling him what he thought and that was the first year of the trump presidency. You had in various books as ray mentioned Gary Cohn who took some tariff order off the president's desk in threw it away I mean you could never imagine another presidency someone taking away directives that the president was GONNA sign. They treated him as if he was not the president of the United I stay at speak to and then the next question is why well and they see that we didn't see I mean. Look there's a lot to be critiqued under this. The presidency and I certainly am not going to defend a lot of the things that he's done. I'm a far more traditional but in defense of the President I think he got rid of a lot of people because he wanted to be the president of the United States and there were so many people that were not listening to him he was duly elected and so I have some sympathy for him in that perspective now. What are Nikki Hilly's motivations? I think we've covered that here but but I guess on that we're going to have to take a break but it's kind of remarkable how she more than I. I think anybody else who worked for him and has left has walked that delegate almost visible line of supporting him and criticizing him in a in a gentle enough way that she maintains

He will defy a house subpoena for Ukraine documents today and as he ignores that subpoena and reportedly faces this new criminal scrutiny from federal prosecutors in New York Giuliani has also revealed that at this point in time he does not have a lawyer of his own as political how did he said simply no one is representing him the legal stakes clearly rising for this lawyer and former prosecutor at the center of Ukraine's scandal Guiliani. has faced a devastating series of revelations from other impeachment witnesses some of were who were the people he was trying to strong arm for this alleged shadow foreign policy today a diplomat named George Ken testifying behind closed doors reportedly revealing that he also raised concerns about Giuliani's Ukrainian pressure scheme months ago this new testimony adds another block here it adds more incriminating information about what Giuliani was doing it comes of course just one day after another impeachment witness another trump aide in this administration testified about the pushback from ouston national security Iser John Bolt now he whatever you think of all of his ideology he is according to these other impeachment with this is on record as trying to get in brought and opposed what he viewed as Giuliani's criminal plot. I WanNa read this and I want you to let this sink in this is the new testimony that Bolton apparently said Hello I'm not part of whatever drug deal sauna and Mulvaney are cooking up this is not breaking hi this is real life Mr Bolton a very accomplished lawyer in addition to his other training knew what was going on he had a view of it he wanted to warn the White House and no one certain terms he viewed this as criminal and his lawyer speaking to lawyers and non lawyers he called it a drug deal so he couldn't be misinterpreted couldn't be misheard and that's at all we're learning from this new witness that Mr Bolden also warned quote Guiliani is a hand grenade who's going to blow everybody up Bolton reportedly told the witness to report her concerns to not just anybody but to a top lawyer at the National Security Council which she they did what you have here taking together it is a very incriminating picture of people who are actively working for Donald Trump who are most days to work trying to get his agenda enacted supporting him getting paid by the government they're inside the trump administration they're inside the White House and they're the ones blowing the whistle there the runs in various ways we're learning trying to say Giuliani is pursuing a quote drug deal Giuliani is a walking hand grenade this is not normal stuff this is normal testimony and I can tell you something else by the end of the week a half a dozen people will have stepped up and testified in this impeachment probe Democrats saying they're getting critical evidence we are learning new and important information in the impeachment inquiry have you heard evidence to this point that would support articles of impeachment against this President Yes jim we have solicitation alone is a criminal act that's the president did it has shown right there in the transcript it's not just the smoking gun it's the actual bullet that is what we're hearing and then you have this you see on your screen is live news it's going to happen during this hour speaker Pelosi in a late in the day announcement that she gets coming forward after her meeting with her own caucus about impeaching trump and where the road is from here and she's going to say something from the podium you're looking at it and we will bring it to you a lot of people interested some people afraid I'm joined now by federal prosecutor Jean Rossi he served for many years Department of Justice Criminal Defense Attorney carrying police who represented Mr. Dopoulos in the Mueller probe and knows her way around some of these national security and legal issues and rutgers Professor Britney Cooper good evening everyone gene yes handgrenade drug deal cooking not your typical congressional testimony not even your typical testimony in Uh trials that tried to prove drug deals what did you make of the stark language from Mr Bolton an Ivy League educated lawyer among other things he nailed he nailed that really well July ten is going to be almost as important as July twenty fifth Ari because John embolden whose views I don't always agree with he had the innate sense to understand that something rotten was occurring Denmark and we make fun and it's a drug deal it wasn't a drug deal it was a deal involving the president pudding his personal interest in his electoral chances over the welfare of the United States of America right and just to be clear gene and then I'll go back to you I think and I'm curious to your analysis but I think Mr Bolden was trying to do in no uncertain terms in a world where every time the president asked for foreign collusion it's later dismissed coke was not have a high level legal discussion about whether this may or may not violate any technical federal law but say look this is over the line is a plot this is a conspiracy and drug deal is something anyone can understand is in the White House Gosh get away from the drug deal they're cooking absolutely he aw conspiracy and conspiracy allegedly existed among the President Giuliani these two other people Levin e Gore they sound like characters Doctor Zhivago I gotTa tell you this case reeks of an impeachable offense in that horsewoman who just said solicitation is the crime a quid pro quo y'all need a quid in he held up for hundred million dollars to Ukraine ten percent of their defense budget and they were pleading with us for help against the Russian and and trump tried to use it like a Carrot Brittany we have sat at this table before and talked about the things Donald Trump does yeah sized for many I would observe that Donald trump merits criticism for many things yes but merits impeachment for very few and I think that's what the founders intended many terrible things that politicians can do are not what the founders defined as impeachable here we are bumping up against one that the Congress says may indeed be impeachable it is not only reprehensible or objectionable or derogatory or discriminatory but that is the kind of abuse of power or as Jean was discussing bribe one of the numerator constitutional offenses for impeachment and thinking about that I wanna play for you Tillerson who's been around the block running oil company spent up to the line let's be real but he said he was getting all kinds of orders to go the line take a look when the president would say well here's what I WANNA do and here's how and I'd have to say to him well Mr President down what you WanNa do but you can't do it that way it violates the law at violates treaties you know he got really frustrated it didn't just get frustrated he ousts people who don't go along and what does that say to you about the testimony today which quotes Mr Bolton who also is out yeah what I'm really sitting here thinking is Humpty dumpty sat on the wall Humpty dumpty had a great fall all the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty dumpty back together again I'm Brittany bars nursery look I've been tight since I was a kid so the other point of this is that it's quite basic we tell wondering don't lie we tell children don't cheat and we have a president who doesn't have morality of a five-year-old and who thinks that it's fine to sort of engaged in shakedown and to basically as the White House and the power of the US presidency to run a crime syndicate and then to essentially try to strong arm anyone who doesn't want to go along what is more talking is that most of the men around the president are a cast of shady characters and at the point that the shady character start to say this is too far then all of us should is it our hair is literally on fire at this point in that he has to go what I appreciate that the Democrats have done this moment is they have seized on what is a simple narrative you cannot US foreign interference to win an election now why we didn't know that in Twenty fifteen twenty sixteen two thousand seventeen is you know is the thing that I'm inclined to be generous about is lying on that floor one difference for twenty sixteen is the evidence we have and I read the Miller report twice and your client was in it you know the Miller report well the evidence suggested that Russia was coming into the US starting doesn't mean you could get their help but that's where it started and one Francis Democrats are pointing to is now it's sitting president and the plot is not coming from Russia the plot is coming from inside the White House you look I think it's a distinction out of different than you do but we'll take this is a man who stood at the podium and said bring me the emails half the emails and bring them to me this is he was invited into to interfere and gave him a pass now we have seen him be entirely consistent with what he said he didn't have the US's best interest at heart when he ran for the presidency he let's continue to ruin our foreign interests around the globe he's totally engaged right now in a realignment of power that we haven't seen since World War Two and we're going to be paying the price for that for generations but the thing that I want to say is that the thing we keep learning in this country is that you cannot get in bed with white supremacy without having global repercussions the US had to learn in the nineteenth century we have to learn in the twentieth and apparently we're terrible students and white folks out Wendy- Wednesday people of Color why folks are having to learn it again in the twenty first century very adjusting everything you lay out there including humpty now we're not we're not talking humpty dance the chance to do the heart you gotTa Shock Shock G Caroline look here's the deal this looks pretty serious as someone who dealt with Muller probe do you see the underlying allegations not asking us to resolve them do you see the underlying allegations here as more serious than that well I think picking up some of the stuff that Britney just said I think one of the since we can learn from sort of having been through the Muller probe at this point is that we perhaps are looking at this too much illegal lens if we're thinking about impeachment the muller pro we were we were so quick to see if it met the statutory elements of whatever crime that we were trying to figure out let me direct it's not illegal lens writing not each element right then what is the right lane the impeachment lens is inherently political right so we can't sit here and say does it meet the elements to get to whatever two thirds of the Senate is going to qualify for so there's a famous quote that impeachment unimpeachable is really just whatever the Congress thinks it is at that moment in history but I'll push back on you respectfully that quote could also be said as a conviction is whatever twelve jurors I think it is it's a description of a process any congress that takes this seriously and in history the congress have taken it seriously partly explaining why the Senate has never actually removed someone from office under conviction a high bar but also agonizingly searching over it the congress is supposed to look to the text the constitution and say on a political disagreement not a criticism of the morality of the individual but rather a high crime misdemeanor trees bribery right and actually if you look at what the quintessential founding fathers what they thought which essentially would constitute high crime and misdemeanor this certainly falls way more within that spectrum than any of the other impeachments we've seen in history which is obviously putting a personal political interest above the interest of party but I think what we're seeing here is a mosaic really we're seeing the whistle blower is almost you don't need the whistleblower anymore at this point because we've got so much here putting together the pieces of this poem we bring you the degree point let me bring in Jeanne back in the back to the panel to the panel here on the set but gene you know you look at this caroline who knows a way around these probes is talking about the role the whistleblower the
Fox News poll finds record 51% support for impeaching Donald Trump
"President's political position is eroding remarkably quickly Fox News poll just out today shows fifty one percent a majority a registered voters believe trump should not only be impeached but removed as well aw fifty one percent and this is happening because the president's misdeeds are clear and indisputable we already know President Trump corruptly uses power worse and occupied country into manufacturing dirt in his political opponent we know that from documents the president himself has released remember I would like you to do us ever though and from things the president has admitted and from things the president has done in front of US yeah well I would think that if they were honest about it that SORTA major investigation Asian very simple edser they should investigate but what we continue to learn every day is the sheer scope of the prize and the consciousness of guilt of nearly everyone involved but this whole enterprise was directed by the President CNN reports that as early as may two months before his now infamous phone call with Ukrainian President President Trump told energy secretary Rick Perry and two senior State Department officials including US ambassador EU Gordon Sunland Abraham to deal with trump's private attorney Rudy Giuliani about planning a meeting with Ukraine's president if they can satisfy rudy they can satisfy the president of Person failure with the meetings said Rudy of course was running around trying to manufacture dirt the president's enemies the president told a cabinet secretary in to senior State Department officials to work with attorney on the scheme to seek foreign help to undermine his political rival and then two months later he told the president of Ukraine the same thing remember in the call knows I will have tre Guiliani give you a call all this was happening in such a way that people involved knew how wrong it was and it's incredibly important to hold onto that simple fact as the president and his allies attempt to cut a massive Jedi mind trick to just wave away convince everyone that what the president did was fine but it wasn't fine and they knew it wasn't fine The Washington Post reported last month the president trump directly ordered his acting chief of staff to hold back that four hundred million dollars in military aid to Ukraine passed by both houses and now the New York Times reports so when the trump administration finally released the military aid American diplomats were advised to downplay the decision and true trump's initial hold up the he's the funds as an administrative matter one State Department official even wrote in an email I'm quoting here keep moving people nothing to see here now nothing to see here is just unbelievably in Culpa Tori because nothing is here means I know this is a big scandal I know this is a crime and I know this is wrong and you all know a two so I'm going to make a joke about it because we can't talk about the fact that we are now in mention wrongdoing again and again and again we see consciousness guilt and awareness by many parties of what was happening that continues to be the theme here remember the whistle blowers first memo's people in the White House knew how wrong was quote White House officials told me this information were deeply disturbed by what transpired and the phone call well now today. CBS's a different memo from that same whistle blower written after speaking to White House show who heard the entirety of trump's phone call whistleblower writing in the officials view the president had clearly committed a criminal act a crime I just witnessed the President committed crime say that well the president and his defenders are basically trying to arguments is that what president trump did was totally fine perfect on call and the other is a kind of non stop fire hose of ridiculous process claims Adam Schiff is this Nancy Pelosi that it kangaroo court you gotTa Yada the whistleblower early at secondhand knowledge none of that matters because the facts are already in the light we have them their documents and tax and emissions by the president they're all there including the crime and I say crime advisedly I'm not the independent observer of the crime was a White House official who works for the President who listened to the phone call that led the whistleblower in the official view the president at clearly committed a criminal act also puts one question rest while only raising a whole host it's quote the standard White House practice presidential level phone calls with world leaders of the White House Situation Room to produce a word for word electronic transcript that memorialize the call in this case the official told me such a transcript had indeed been produced and was being treated very sensitively in hard copy only so there is warning the whistleblower word for word transcript from call phone call that we don't have the White House can stonewall they want they can fight on privilege grounds they can stop you from testifying the one thing that we at the C. before this is all over is that word for word transcript of trump's phone call with Ukraine's president trump has no grounds to stop that the president himself says it's a perfect call the president himself released the call notes he's waived any privilege we must see the perfect call in its complete word for word version so that all of us Graham the house you and I can all marvel at just how perfect it is the cannot hide that joining me now for more on the White House stonewalling tactics when the members of Congress investigating the president congressman Mike Quigley Villanova he's a member of the House Intelligence Committee let me start right there on that obviously the president has released the call notes do you believe there's an actual word were transcript with more than what we've seen do you believe that Congress should have access to it I I believe it exists I don't know for sure that it does and obviously congress should have a right to that I don't Wanna get too bogged down with people thinking if you don't have all the details all of the evidence you can't go forward because I think the president will continue to stonewall the contender the obstruction I believe we have an extraordinary case to move forward now we're not gonNA stop we're going to be diligent but I don't want the people to think that if we don't get every last detail that we can't move forward so that that was going to be second question. I'm Adam shifts approach here as well as the other oversight committee chairs is essentially look they went on strike they obstruct maybe we'll bring an article impeachment on that we're moving forward and we have a sufficient evidence already entered into the record to drop articles of impeachment is that your view it is and I think that the what we're seeing gene is further Deflections distraction not just by the president but my colleagues who are talking about process they are tacking Adam Schiff will end Nancy Pelosi on process it's extraordinary because if anything the Intel Committee under Adam Chef has been extraordinary in involved with the details is following the letter of the law the whistle blower according to the trump appointed inspector general the trump appointed head of the intelligence community did everything right followed the letter of the law the only entity that's not is the White House and they're the ones talking about process the crimes have been committed and they're in public view the president has been insulting and criticizing the whistle blower leveling all sorts of claims along with his allies are you worried about the whistle blower being protected through this process as the law requires I have my first concern is the safety of the whistle blower of the president using terms like treasonous and traitorous and you know we do with with traders what we used to do with them I believe he's put this whistle blower at risk that's most important underneath that but as important to a certain extent is the chilling effect it has on the whistle blower system as a whole The intelligence community operates in secrecy. It has to keep us safe but that only works in an open government if whistle blower system works and the oversight of Congress works he is imperilled all that too bad things can happen. When there's no whistle blowers a bad deeds gun go unknown unpunished and leaks happen and we'll happen that threatens our sources in our methods it puts people at risk and it makes us less safe when you talk about bad deeds going on and on flagged I WANNA ask your responses story that just publishing you may not know a lot about it but it was just published Bloomberg reports that the President Trump Preston then secretary of state REX Tillerson him to persuade the Justice Department to drop criminal case that it had against an Iranian Turkish gold trader who happened to be a client of Rudy Giuliani? This is a very high profile case was brought so in district three sources saying the president told REX Tillerson to lean on the Department of Justice to drop this case of a guy who Rudy Giuliani was representing Rudy Guiliani in that same article admitting he may have talked about this with the president do you worry there are other corrupt abuses of power similar to what has been laid bare in Ukraine that are your and have not been flagged to report it I think it's obvious the president never commits a crime once and it comes to the Justice Department he thinks he has complete control the long term impacts by this president and we just won't know until it's all over may well be instructed Mary damage to the independence the integrity of the Justice Department is autocratic to think the president can tell them who they can and they can't prosecute it is obvious he has said it publicly openly that he believes he has that power and we see stories like this they're indicative of a president who thinks she's the author of the Times piece explaining diplomats urged to play down the release of the military funds for Ukraine and Ned price on we're spokesperson senior director on the National Security Council under President Barack Obama now and MSNBC National Security analyst Laura let me start with you can you explain that email has just really stuck in my mind nothing to see here email and it reminds me I reported on Enron I reported on the Housing Crisis Report on baseball during the steroids era all sorts of places where people knew something was going wrong sideways and kind of joked about it can you blamed context for that email sure so in early August the White House notified the State Department that the aid to Ukraine from the state I was going to be held it's about one hundred forty one million dollars in security assistance Congress has already approved it and then notice comes from the White House to the State Department that saying we are putting a hold on this the email traffic shows that people at the State
Treating Hair Loss With PRP Injections
"My hair has been weird since they transplant seasonally have to change products right right out of the summer comes like Oliver Harris kind of like Shitty yeah an autonomy as a Kenosha try Moose. I love my natural wave. I love my natural texture amplify eighties in most sit up literally for travel size nexus next guide. God which you would love the pink so this is the most and that's the hairspray I my show is the travel next this moose such a pretty shine in Finnish. I can't I can't believe is a hairstylist. You've never like this is the first time you're using Moose yet because when you were when I was like seven it was like Gel and then for guys it it was gel because it was like it was the haste and made was cool. Okay right that was like the inning then my hair was so hormonal and thick and course unlike was off all right were hats. I mean it. It's really interesting because we talk to Dr Swalec at Union Square laser dermatology today about hair loss and hair loss is it can be genetic. It can be due to life events stress. I've lost posted temporarily. Yeah we had a great guest on Beca a while back who came on and shared her story about the Pierre P. Injections and so I wanted to get at that expert Opinion Sapir P. is platelet rich plasma and it's basically a tall against preparation of plasma. That's very rich and growth factors so we take your blood we spin it down to this rich on plasma portion with a growth factor and then it's injected back into your scalp and these growth factors contain things like platelet derived growth factor vascular endothelial growth factor and they've been shown to improve the Antigen to tillerson ratio so the antigen that refers to the growing phase of our hairs when our hairs are growing. Cristea login is more the resting phase that the hair cycle goes through report sheds and what what this is doing is actually shifting more Harris to growing face and that means clinically what we see is usually increased hair density increased hair counts so we are actually okay then changing the cycle of growth. What is the second so long about eighty percent of our hairs are in the Antigen or growth phase at any one time and that can last anywhere from two to eight years it varies a little bit from individual to individual Biz obituary hole. Can you know people who can grow the hair really long have longer antigen phases than those who aren't able to grow their hair quite as long My Ryan got past her shoulders five and then it shifts to phase which is like a very short period before it goes into the tildren phase and that's when our hairs are shutting about maybe ten to fifteen percent of our hairs. Bears are in tillage in at any one time. He feels like a lot more when you brush your hair in the morning doesn't it right it does but that's why we see that that that that shedding is actually ling normal yes an individuals who are experiencing -til agenda flu. VM which is an abnormal shedding that can occur in instances this is of extreme weight loss or illness or stress stress hormones ivf yet exactly after having a baby for instance Daniel has you'll see more hair coming coming out because what happens is more of those hairs from the growing phase get shifted to the children phase in our shed so temporarily. I'm so glad they just I brought that up because I can ask you. I find that if I recommend my clients to really slowly we often breastfeeding and not just politic or one day or go to like one bottle the Sidon that they will they will to shed will be less interesting actually last but I would say less impactful tactful all at one right. I'm not sure if any was actually showing that but I mean it may have impacts on the hormones that are involved and so yeah I wouldn't be surprised necessarily early you know I it was just something that I've noticed over time and so the PRP cycle I mean when Becker told us about it sounds terrible but but we know that it works so from your medical perspective what's going on. We have to have these awful shots in our head yeah so so so so we do the injections in the scalp to the areas of hair loss and then we tend to bring you back in about another month into another round and the exact protocol hasn't been worked out entirely entirely okay but the the studies have shown that may be doing once a month treatments for three months and then bring you back in six months and may be doing maintenance mistreatment at that time seems to support improved haired. Weinstein hair growth okay and there's one study that actually looked at that protocol and compared it to doing one one treatment every two months and they showed that the the group that actually had monthly treatments for three months started to show greater growth earlier which is probably really encouraging percentage and absolute hair count so yeah it is more encouraging so you filter the blood because you know with with peer pay. They take your blood not not a ton of it or do you need a ton of. I I've done the facial and I think it was like one vial of blood. I don't know exactly sure it's usually like maybe a few millimeters like etc or two and then they spin it out we get the PRP we get the platelet rich plasma which is the liquid gold and the injections. How many injections are we doing. It really varies from person to person and the amount of the area that we're treating the amount of hair loss they have. Oh so you can do this. Not I was assuming that this is all over the head. Not You can also do it in targeted areas. Yes absolutely we don't have to treat the whole scout if that's not where almost the hair loss is I've had patients who for instance notice more thinning along the frontal hairline in the temples and so we focus our injections more there okay and then I have patients who have more thinning throughout the crown and so we do more extensive injections right I think headed everywhere because she had she had sort of all all over thinning It was incredible to see her results. Though I mean she had like a noticeable difference. Do you find that that's the case with many many patients or you know in all fairness this you just have to pull the plug and pray kind of a thing. I have to say that you know I tend to be rather skeptical over trying new treatments and technology. I like to see a lot of evidence behind them before I stopped it so I was maybe a little slow to jump on the PRP bandwagon but over the past year there've been increasing number of studies that have come out some that have been placebo controlled and I'm seeing more and more evidence evidence for this so I do think there is something to it but I will say do think there may be some individual variability. there is some thought that the way the blood is prepared of the Plasma Hasman prepared may have some effect on the platelet by ability in the growth factors and this is all areas that need to be further researched searched okay in standardized a lovely brought that up as well because I said Yes to trying a treatment with my surgeon and they were it was prp with a a cell. Have you heard of this. He saw it. I think has to do with the with the anticoagulant I believe so the cell almost like a bridge or a barrier that kept the PRP right where you put it so okay didn't shift around and they said that if you did it with ACLU didn't need to do as many treatments there are so they're different forms of anti-coagulants that are put in the formulation. There are also different activators that get put in like either `thrombin. I'm Ben or sodium citrate that in the ideas like the activators are basically put in to stimulate the platelets release the growth factors and so then there's factors would be more readily available to the hair follicle so the idea being maybe would get better better results but interestingly enough there are there's at least one or two groups that have studied this and they showed that even using non activated. PRP resulted in hair growth growth. When you talk about non-activated does that mean that non non injected? It's just not being injected with an activating bright of with anything extra sure that would actually basically stimulate platelets released the granules. Is this only for her on the head. It's been study most for her on the head but I think some some people looked at eyebrows as well okay I don't think they're really any studies looking at it for use in other areas of the body most people obviously come to us wanting to grow. We're here on their head.
Everything to know about the Galaxy Note 10 (The Daily Charge, 8/8/2019)
"Today on the daily charge you knew it was coming an obligation to the masses today. We're talking all about the galaxy note. Good morning and cassisi nets daily charge. It's thursday august eighth. I'm joanie salesman and i'm just all court sharia tip. Let's take a look at today's stories last night. Samsung unveiled not one but two big new phones the galaxy note ten and the note ten plus range from nine hundred in forty nine dollars to one thousand three hundred ninety nine dollars. We've got fancy prison. Medic backings gesture controls in the silence four year cameras and an amped a partnership with microsoft jessica shara you right there for all these announcements. What's the single biggest takeaway for me. I think the biggest thing is instead of just just one bigger phone. They actually came out with a phone with two models. This year and one of them is smaller and cheaper than last year's note nine which is a big change. Nobody's really going long smaller anymore. They're just going bigger and bigger yeah. Absolutely i agree. That is the most significant difference for samsung. What you're doing is you're taking what was the pinnacle of its line. You're breaking it into two parts and there are actually you could say that they're sort of devaluing that note for the longest time it stood as the best of the best that that samsung can offer in the year the best specs the best everything and now there's this lighter version <hes> presumably for people who have always wanted to know but didn't want to i have the large screen or maybe didn't pay that sky high price so samsung's creating options there are also creating different price points and it's just a really interesting shift in that strategy edgy one thing you won't be seeing on the notes your beloved headphone jack not only a headphone jack missing from the new notes but the micro s._d. Is gone for the smaller phones to jessica. Why is samsung taking away all our things yeah. I mean that's really controversy all for the longest time. Samsung has been the hold out the major holdout when these headphone jacks acts are being removed. Remember apple said that courage to do this. There is a shift definitely. You're all courageous. Yes definitely there's a shift in in what we're using tillerson to phone so samsung has said that fewer people are using the headphone jack instead. You'll be using that u._c. You s._b._c. port. If you want wired wired headphone <hes> or you might make the jump and go into <hes> the wireless bluetooth headsets and samsung will be happy to sell you that as well so they said that i think it was like seventy percent of set in the seventy percentage of galaxy s. note users. Don't even use the headphone jack anyway. Most people are using bluetooth yeah but this is annoying for people who have invested in wired headphones pray. They prefer for various reasons. Maybe they don't want to charge it up. Maybe they want something. That will just work with any device. Maybe they spent a lot of money on something really good and they love it but if you do that now you'll have to use a dangle. There is a pair of headphones that come in the box but there's no dangle. If you want a samsung dangle you have to pay ten dollars for it but last night i did go round and i tested four different dangles right with the no ten plus list and they all worked on the same video so i don't think that you're gonna see a lot of problems there. You don't have to bite exclusively from samsung and lastly five g. Super fast networks are it's still out of reach for almost everybody but samsung has two phones now ready for five g. now with the galaxy note ten plus five jeep shara. What do consumers need to know about this phone. Yeah i mean basically it's a mess in terms of in terms of how five going to work so what we saw with the galaxy s. ten five g. was it would only tap into the super super fast millimeter wave networks so these are the ones that doesn't travel very far. If there's a tree in the way the signal wig blocked you'd be trees exactly <hes> but it's what we're seeing rolled out in cities like chicago and a new york and there's another kind of flavor of six six five gee that's going to be ruled out more broadly and it can go farther distances. It doesn't have a lot of the problems more stable but it's just not as fast so that's what a._t. Eighteen t and t mobile their broader networks are going to be so like next year. They say they're going to be nationwide with five g. because when they can they turn this on you can basically five asia anywhere. They've just been waiting for a phone to work with it. They issue is there wasn't a modem that worked with it yeah so the rises going to get this phone. I the note ten plus. I five g. They're gonna use an older modem and it'll still tap into the super fast network that they have a._t. And t. and t. mobile are using version with the new modem and it it can tap into the faster networks but for some reason it's not going to so for a._t. And t. and t. mobile if you buy this device you're going to be able to have much broader coverage but you're not going to get the super fast speeds and we don't really know why that is at this point because the modem can support it so who knows but basically it's basically it's super confusing right that sounds about as clear as five jazz generally. I mean next year probably with like the galaxy s. eleven eleven year. You're gonna have a phone that can support all of the variations of five g. So if you really want gee if you want a phone that can last you for several years. I just wait for the daily charge on joni salesman. I'm jessica awkward name charts again. Thanks for listening.
Joe Biden, President Trump And President Obama discussed on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer
"Let's talk about the second presidential debate glory of the vice president, former vice president, Joe Biden is going to be on the stage. Bernie sanders. Eight others will be on the states are you exp? Acting fireworks? Yes, I am. I think not the Donald Trump version of fireworks because I don't think they'll be calling each other names, the way, Donald Trump did in his primary debates. But I think Joe Biden has a big target on his back. I think he and Bernie Sanders are probably going to have some interesting conversations. The Biden people are saying, you know, we don't you know the differences between us obvious. We don't need to respond to him but I bet he's prepared to. And I'm sure Bernie Sanders is ready to to give it to them. You have candidates on that stage. Kamla Harris really needs to introduce yourself to the American people writ, large Buddha, jig. I mean he's forty years younger than Joe Biden, and he will be right there with him. So that should be interesting. So I think that since the Biden campaign has kind of kept by under wraps, allot, not speaking to the national media, this is going to be the first time where. Really going to see Joe Biden, perform on the campaign trail and see how he interacts with his competitors for that alone. It should be Jewish should be very interesting. Rebecca buck another candidate congressman Eric swell while he went after Biden in a CNN interview earlier today with Brooke Baldwin. Listen to this. We can't have a candidate who has ideas that are Staehler than Donald Trump's. So you think Biden is a candidate of the past. I, I don't think we can nominate a candidate who has been in government for longer than twenty years. I just don't think that's going to work. To hear more of that those direct attacks against Biden from some of these lower tier candidates. There's no question from the lower tier candidates wolf. This is potentially they're only moment to try to break through in this race. Get into a higher tier. But my question, especially with that generational argument that swallow was trying to make is will we see someone like Buddha, judge making that argument to reckless to Joe Biden or hinting at that argument, or we'll he focus on trying to stay positive trying to stay above that, and save that for later. But that could be a really interesting. Congressmens volleyball's a smart guy. He has a big future in politics. But I think that was a tactical mistake, number one, he let vice-president Biden know what was coming tonight. So now he's got a couple of hours to come up with a I'm not going to hold his youth and inexperience against him type snappy comeback. And the other thing is that now congressman swallow isn't a situation where if I'm a moderator I'm going to ask him. What exactly did you mean when you said, we can't afford to have someone like Joe Biden in the White House? And now he's going to have to come up with an answer to that. His words who has ideas that are Staley as than Donald Trump's ideas that beyond, what are you looking for tonight? Again. I think it's the Biden and Bernie debate, and I think it'll be interesting to see how closely Biden will defend the Obama legacy, and the Obama economy, this is something that Bernie Sanders has been attacking, and going after pre Donald Trump, if you'll recall. So this is something that I'm going to be closely paying attention to how close. Will vice the vitamin B defending the Affordable Care Act in terms of Medicare for all, which is what Bernie is, is pursuing both of these candidates. Unlike last night have run for president before. So this isn't their first rodeo, but watching these two specifically Joe Biden and whether or not he stays align with the Obama legacy is something that I think will be key. And I personally think that the, the biggest setback that Joe Biden faces tonight is Joe Biden, we didn't hear Obama's name mentioned last night. I bet you're going to hear it tonight. Probably mostly from Joe Biden. I think so. I would definitely think so member, there are those friendship prices. He tweeted about. Maybe he'll be wearing it this whole remember president. Remember, President Trump's that it was embarrassing that Obama has not come out in support of Biden as. Exactly. Gloria white. The he's he picked him to be vice. Presidential running mate heartbeat away from the presidency serve with them for eight years during the Obama administration now by decipher run. Why didn't President Obama endorsed his vice president, well Biden was asked about that and Biden said he didn't endorse me because I asked him to stay away from all of this right now, because I want to earn it Donald Trump said, that's a load of bunk. I don't believe it for a minute. But that is what Biden says, I believe who knows if what Biden is saying is exactly what he asked the former president. But I believe that Barack Obama at this point needs to hang back. He can't get in the middle of this primary fight. Why, why would he I he's going to be very visible and very involved in this campaign, I guarantee you? But at this point I don't think he needs to pick favorites. I'm sure he's met with every candidate and tried to help them out. And clearly he has a fondness. For Joe Biden, but if I'm Barack Obama, I am going to hang

Donald J Trump, President Putin And Rex Tillerson discussed on Armstrong and Getty

And of course, that testimony leaked out almost immediately Tillerson, said that they walked into the meeting expecting an exchange of courtesies, but it became a two hour, plus discussion that involve geopolitical issues will onto say Putin seized every opportunity to push what he wanted. And there was quote, a discrepancy in preparation that created an unequal pudding. Donald J Trump, he's the president.

New book on Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump paints a gloomy portrait
"Right. So this week guys. The guardian got a hold of a new book coming out March nineteenth called Kush ink by Vicky ward, I mentioned at top of the show or not the top maybe. But earlier in the show when I was talking about Trump printing out the Komi firing letter on the wrong printer. So in this book, some of our beans came true, check out this clip from episode eighteen the Daily Beast broke a story on Friday that Kushner's dad asked a Qatari firm to lend the Kushner's money to shore up sixty six sixty six Fifth Avenue. We've talked about the six six six building. It's the office building that's the centerpiece of the Kushner real estate empire, and it is one billion dollars in debt, and that loan is coming due in two, months, and Kushner and his family been scrambling to get money to pay this lingo. And that's what the city group and Apollo five hundred million dollar loans went into the office building. And Kushner's dad went to Qatar and ask them can we have some money and to to put into this office building Qatar looked at the office building because he bought it in two thousand seven right before the bubble bursts. So that was dumb and Qatar went no note that you and that upset Kushner, but what's interesting is that when that deal fell apart. Kushner backed a Saudi blockade of Qatar. Basically teaming up with Saudi Arabians to to put throw a blockade up against Qatar and Qatar is one of our key allies in the fight against Aycell in the region, that's national security level shit. We have thousands troops in Qatar like. But his, but he but his not getting alone. And now, it's not proven that. It's connected. But it's to him. It was clearly more important, but well, whether he did it because of that or not, but he did he did advocate for the blockade against Qatar. And it happened to be less than a month after Qatar refused to lend him money on that build interesting. So we'll see if that also. Yeah, we'll see Moller's looking into it. And also the securities the SEC the securities and Exchange Commission dropped an inquiry into Apollo Apollo global management less than a month after they agreed to lend Kushner one hundred and eighty million dollars. So go back and listen to eighteen because it's all about putting club Kushner, and I have a feeling we're going to hear a lot more about Kushner in the next couple of weeks anyhow in this new book, we learned that around that time Kush was confronted by Tillerson, and Gary Cohn who blamed Kush for Trump's abrupt endorsement of. Saudi blockade against cutter. Even though they're an ally in the region. We have our one of our largest bases there with a quite a few military stationed there. Shortly thereafter, cutter help to bail out Kushner from his devil building sixty six Fifth Avenue. The guardian also published a piece this week about cushion, how his friendship with Mohammed bin some on. The crown prince of Saudi Arabia is at the heart of US Saudi relations, and as we know Kushner Flynn, and a whole host Trump allies have pushed to provide the Saudis with technology to build nuclear reactor plants that could put them on the path to developing nuclear weapons if they want to enrich their own uranium, which they definitely do which is dumb because it's way less than half the price to get it enriched elsewhere and shipped back to you. So the fact that you want enriched uranium suspicious uranium means you want to make weapons. So let's go over a few things we discuss regarding Kushner on the pod I way back in April twenty seventeen Kushner's dad asked the country's for a loan. And they said, no, you're stupid. Get out of him two months later. Saudi Arabia throws up the blockade much to the chagrin of Conan. Tillerson. Incidentally, that's right around the time Jamalco Shoji left Saudi Arabia after he trash talk Trump.
Mattis resigns after clash with Trump over troop withdrawal from Syria
"So the Trump administration. Aides told the new. Times that the president became increasingly furious in the days following Madison's resignation letter the times reporting added that the president initially did not understand just how forceful rejection of his strategy Mr Batten haddish should because people took that resignation. And they really parse that out. They went sentence by sentence as they're going to do this. Don't like the president. Yes. So so here, here's General Mattis who a lot of people love except the left. Didn't love him. Remember, President Obama fired him in two thousand thirteen didn't even call him. He found out when an aide told him he'd been replaced. Yes. Not not a word from the left on that at all. They were silent about that. Like, well, who cares? He fired back. They didn't care about that. At all. Now, they love him because the because he's resigning, and so he's not going to be serving for President Trump's are. Now, they love him. And and President Trump's a horrible person for letting him go, right? So you so you're here's how here's here's the ark of serving your country these days, if you serve inside of this administration as at as you are serving in the administration, you are Beasley Bob you are Satan incarnate. If you're Rex Tillerson, if you're on Orosa, if your James Mattis, you are doing nothing, but ushering in the seven horsemen of the apocalypse. Now, if you decide to leave the administration or you're fired and instead of. And if you even relatively dunk on the administration just Mattis was just a little dunk on Rosa course, was kind of like half court. Michael Jordan at the end of Space Jam kinda dunk. Doesn't matter. Then you'll become a cult hero. All right. Then suddenly it's like yes Queen. Okay. Yes. Queen re Rex Tillerson like yes, come on. We love you. We love you. Exxon Mobil executive because you're saying mean mean things about the administration. So that's that's the career. That's the career arc of anyone coming in the comings and goings of the Trump administration, and that's summed it up beautifully. So so the this is again awkward, this is apparently a behind the scenes based on stories from people who have no authority to talk. Of course, of course, unnamed sources though, isn't it funny, Mary that is always increasingly furious. Like every one of these stories is always Trump becomes increasingly furious. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Well, he's unhinged. And we have to have that parody of him of being unhinged. Because he has to be insane. What he's doing in that? Because all of the people, of course, who voted for him are racist on Saturday. The president tweeted that he gave Mattis quote, a second chance after Barack Obama ingloriously fired him, which is true. Mattis led the US central command for two thousand ten to twenty thirteen. And then he disagreed with the Obama administration on Iran and rather than allow him to resign President Obama fired him, but didn't tell him he was fired because that's that's classy, Trump wrote some thought I shouldn't. I thought I should interesting relationship. But I also gave all of the resources that he never really had allergies are very important. But not when they take advantage of the US. So the president was speaking there about giving him a second chance some thought I shouldn't I thought I should. So I did he never had the resources that I gave him but. A lot of people are pointing to the line in James Madison's resignation where he talks about allies being important to the United States. And how we can't just turn our back on our allies. A lot of people are talking about the the Kurds that the United States has a habit of of arming the Kurds. We train the Kurds because they they fight against the fight against ISIS. They're they're they're loyal to us. And then we we leave them, right? We do it. We do time and time again, I don't know. How often we think they're going to stay loyal to us because we do it to them time and time again, I don't pretend to know that much about Syria to be able to speak about it with any kind of authority. So I'm going to say that I don't know the I don't know it's been going on for years and years. Does anyone have MS? Right. All the different players and everything else. I hear I have obviously we've heard about the Kurds over and over and over again and how they're like the one bastion of sanity in a sea of insanity. And that's apparently we're leaving them again. Right. And so now they're going to be slaughter. Yeah. Not not not really, I if you look at all the controlling forces in the region, the Kurds are absolutely surrounded by extremists and surrounded by very very dangerous people with this going to work out. Well for them God. Let's hope it's Christmas Eve, let's say a prayer. But this is a tough world when America leaves region, it certainly is a vacuum. And it is and there's only two thousand troops that are leaving that we have there. But that was enough to keep some stability. But we have not just Democrats. We've Republicans who are also not happy with this. And are speaking out about it as well. So we'll see. That develops presents. Got a lot on his

"Slash join aren't. Let's go over here. So on this show, we try really, really hard to be fair, and we have a clear perspective. We never hide that. We're progressives and we have point of view about certain people, political parties, companies, etcetera. But you cannot let that get in the way of new developments facts so board. We have an interesting case of that in the case of Rex Tillerson. So I am no fan of Rex Tillerson and I don't know any progressive that is Rex Tillerson was the CEO vaccine mobile. Not only that Exxon Mobil polluted environment contribute to climate change in a devastating way, but new memos show that they knew about it for a long time and covered it up. And I believe Rex Tillerson went into the Trump administration to try to get a deal with the Russians and Exxon Mobil back on the plate as it turned out, it didn't work because the Senate and the house overwhelmingly voted for sanctions and they could not get that half a trillion dollar deal back into effect. So I'm telling you all that because not only am I not a fan of rice, Susan, there's good reason not to. A fan of bracelets in. Now, sprinkle in one more thing is hypocrisy. So Exxon Mobil was is one of the leading companies in the country that does fracking when they went to do fracking near Rex Tillerson's house in Texas. He flipped out and was, I know, literally not in my backyard. So what happened? Ivo fracking was awesome. Apparently not so much when it's near your home. So all the reasons not slow Rex Tillerson. That being said, an interesting report out of the intercept a dime by Aleksandras with inside sources inside the United States, government State Department, and the White House showing that Rex Tillerson might have been a bit of a hero in this particular case. So let me give you the facts and then you decide for yourself. Okay. So Emmons writes in the months that followed Rex Tillerson's departure. And of course he has now left the State Department and he was fired by Trump, press reports, strongly suggests. So that the country's lobbying hardest for Tillerson's removal were Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Both of which were frustrated by Tillerson's attempts to mediate an end, their blockade of Qatar. That's very interesting. Now, there was some curious situation around the departure of Rex Tillerson and Russia. Now to the point about how Tillerson I'm not positive is the most honest actor in the world to say the least as soon as it was made evident, that Exxon Mobil did not want that deal with Russia anymore because they didn't think we lift the sanctions. Tillerson was fired within a week of that. Okay. But to be fair to Tillerson he disagreed with Trump on Russia and was much tougher on Russia than Trump was, and some thought that Trump might have been mad about that. But either way, even though I think that he clearly wanted that deal done, he still was honest in regards to how he dealt with Russia on behalf of the United States of America near the end, whether that anger Trump or not as good an open question, but apparently Russian interference is not the only. We have to worry about is this story explains, there are a lot of countries trying to interfere with at least our policy-making that is for sure let alone our elections now then trying to influence us is nothing new and every country tries to influence us, whether they're our allies, our enemies in one way or another. But the question is, do we listen to them and why do we listen to them? So in this case, Tillerson made some. Enemies in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. Let's find out why they explain Furthermore, citing other people's reporting as well. One report in the New York Times even suggested that the UAE ambassador to Washington knew that Tillerson would be forced out three months before he was fired in March..
