Dip I'm togs look fivethirtyeight Duma walk but I feel Good money was mine. and. That's what we do. We make money we focus on what we know and we stick to it and we tried and we do. Well, that's the goal anyway, and of course, the rest of the market while we saw a bit of a sad sack face on the old bitcoin loss, not of course, before we get to Bitcoin on one of the touch on a gold and the reason wanted to touch on gulled. Is quite simply because it kind of a very large amount lost not. You know we fell five point six percent on goal and Bitcoin felt the same time. Now, what does that mean like correlation was a don't really know we did see the the Dow come off a little bit. It's a tiny bit the S. and P. as well.

Who should replace Ellen?
"News is ongoing. Generous. Ongoing News that won't stop are one nemesis might be replaced by our other nemesis. On their talk show the Ellen show. Well, these are that this is them news, but I do feel like Ellen could be replaced with a WHO, if this all comes to fruition or like a WHO thinks so too person because I'm seeing a lot of people nominate various talk show e people although apparently the rumors are like James Corden is going to replace Ellen, but like he has a show so. That makes no sense to me on any. That's what blows my mind. Why he has eight hundred shows. He has just made another daily show like that doesn't make any sense to me at on. The also has carpool. Karaoke. And then he also has the cat sequel like he has plenty, oh. Yeah. Let's replace a supposedly nice person with another supposedly nice person like. Haven't. We learned anything from this thing. These people are Nice. They suck. I think always be wary of people who say their thing is being. I think the number, one person who should clearly replace Allen is Kiki Palmer. There's literally no. Better obvious. Getting a lot of a lot of traction and she showing up a lot of tweets because it's like she just had a talk show that got canceled for no reason on ABC. Well, it was like that one hour of Commerical Strahan. Michael? And Kiki Sarah? There was A. Third Sarah. Sarah. And Michael and Kiki It just give it to clean working it. Just everyone likes he. We Love Kiki. She's a great host. Who else do you think if if we're going if for skewing young? I think we to Kiki for skewing older, I think it should go to fucking the woman who should have gotten David Letterman, amy. Sedaris like give it to amy sedaris because people like her. She's silly. I don't know that, amy, the thing is I. Don't know that Amy Sarah's would want to do that I. Feel like. I don't need that. We're talking about this on the Patriot. If you WANNA. Go listen to that about how drew Barrymore also has daily, show a daytime show coming out, and I'm like who would want this job? Drew Barrymore wants this job since when like it's just to meal a a weird job that you wouldn't want that could turn you or probably. Turn you into a monster, right? Yes. but the to provide a context in case you've been under a rock people are like there. There have been the rumors for years and years and years, but specifically the past few months they've really you know the hit a critical mass and started being reported publicly like Ellen is an asshole to everyone. Ellen is an asshole. The people she works with Ellen makes people not talk to her ellen cruel. But now there are reports by like news and variety and insider that it wasn't just ellen being a to everyone and celebrities and not liking Ellen like being on Ellen show. It's that the executive producers were actually like being abusive like in sexually harassing the employees. So it's like a culture. Culture of toxicity. That is the sort of thing that I don't that Ellen is deciding up allegedly that she doesn't want to deal with anymore. So she's like this sucks like I just rather not do this anymore. Right. So but this rumor, this isn't this is in fact, this is rumor because people keep their keep going back and forth and saying some some sources say she's not leaving this show sums his sources as she's leaving the show. I. Can't imagine somebody as likely a annoyed with the whole situation who is known to be not a very nice person would want to continue to fake be nice and have to apologize and half to like kind of whatever because these rumors have been. Kind of like I for some reason I, keeping you Kevin Spacey Pre the abuse allegations like when everyone knew he was gay, but no one knew he was gay like it was weird thing where it was like if you knew, you knew if you didn't, you had no idea what be totally shocked it. Kind of feels like that type of Hollywood news where like everyone knew that Ellen was secretly mean except for Ellen fans who had no idea where living happily with ellen everyday of their life and like the show was wildly successful, right? very strange. A very strange thing. Do you think that this will happen because people are so bored in their craving, the Gospel, and then somebody just this is this is what I mean I, think it's I mean. It's a combination of a lot of things at one of is like the people finally speaking out about their employers. It's like finally like shutting down like the. The systemic issues and leg, not being corporate America and knowing that people will support them and believe them and believe them, and that like the media machine of Ellen isn't powerful enough to shut down. So many voices if enough come out and and we'll talk about it later in the episode, but it's like the it's similar to the. Vanessa. Morgan thing, it's it's shades of an ESA Morgan being like I'm going to speak up against the riverdale creators and the Riverdale producers because people are people are realizing that they can do that and they won't get like dumped on by the press or of their fans they will be seen as like heroes. But. It's also just like, I, Think Dakota Johnson had a tiny bit to do with it because Dakota Johnsons like Open crubaugh open open. Rudeness to Ellen SORTA. Gave People. I don't know permission to speak about rumors that she's an asshole more openly. They're like, it looks like that's what Dakota's referencing. So I didn't even know you liked me. Of course, I. Like you. You Knew I. Liked you. You've been on the show many times and don't I show like. But I did invite you and you didn't come. So this time you invited me, are you sure? How do you? I don't think. So ask everybody. Jonathan. Your producer. I was that, why didn't I go? I don't know that became a meme. You have people like Brad Garret and who else replied to him. Leah Tom's Tom's joins. She is mean she is. She. Yes. Now, I can't believe I just called the Thomson. So Deutsche US minor. That was obsessed the disease of this show right here. Yeah. Leah Thompson also respond to that and said Yep I mean, I just think that it's like no one was a true story note once you lose grip on the fear, you are the power you had over I mean, and it's funny because then you have scooter Braun coming out her being like Ellen is great. I. Love Allen is like so people still. Look at the people coming out and say L. Like scooters, hedging his bets at this, all go away and back to normal and Ellen will still be powerful and whatever, and then you have people speaking out i. just it's a fascinating reveal of a monolith almost kind of crumbling that you didn't think would ever. Be exposed like this. I didn't. It seems like Palmer is getting a lot of A lot of press over like a lot of tweets being could replace. Ellen is trending key Palmer got a lot. Tiffany haddish. Got A lot that woman who does the like trump impersonations? What's her name? Sarah? Cooper. She got a lot of people tweeting about her I mean, I think it's just bomber just someone who someone who actually. Got Some tweets booing reply Oh doodoo be from drag race also got A. Drag. Race. Got I. saw that. Yeah. But I think he palmer when you when you want someone who has like the resume as well like. You of don't WANNA, pick someone random like Sarah Cooper. As funny as she is on twitter, because like her her her skills as a as an interviewer, not proven whereas Kiki, Palmer is a link interviewer host. Yeah I mean I would say like the Ellen slots, big slot made we just move up the ladder. We get Kelly Clarkson in that slot. We get Drew Barrymore Kelly was and we get key. Palmer. Work. Curse, lot I know these are all people on different network. So it makes literally no sense but you. Better like we. We cannot confuse the audience. We must replace the Ellen show with someone named. Ellen. Ellen Ellen. Page's like don't look at me like another gay. Just like I will not I will. Zone POMPEO, she wouldn't do it. I. Don't I don't need Elon Pale. Ellen Page Ellen Popular, and Never Would Ellen Pompeo every interview Ellen Pao's ever done. It's been like I. Love Grey's Anatomy I. have nothing but free time like. She will never do that. You know who would do it. Who Ellen Barkin? Embark and all Ellen Barkin wants is a soapbox like did someone say soapbox?

Robert Caro on How He Does It
"Robert Carroll joins us now he is the Pulitzer Prize. Winning author of many books. New Book is called working researching interviewing and writing. He's also the author of the years of Lyndon Johnson four volumes of them thus far and the powerbroker Robert Moses and the fall of New York Bob. Thanks so much for being here. Pleasure to be here all right so everyone has been greatly anticipating a volume five of the years of Johnson. But instead you have written this other book working researching interviewing writing. Why did you decide to do this? Ever since the powerbroker I kept myself out of the book. I don't think the word I appears in there many times. If soon as the book came out people started asking me. What was it like ten of you Robert Moses and I realized that I should have put in something to tell people what that was like so for like forty five years. I've been hearing that question and people ask me what it's like to work in presidential libraries were. Can you find out from interviews? This isn't the adviced anybody but it's sort of. I said we'll I WANNA give people some glimpses into how I work so. I took time out to do this book now. I'm back doing the volume. I mean it's an interesting question about interviewing Robert Moses because you had read five sessions which women seven sessions with him. Which was very different from the Johnson. Biography where he was dead already for several years. Before you could get started and I'm curious you write about it a bit in working what the difference was like for you. Writing the book writing a biography of a person who was still alive versus writing a biography of someone who was already gone in one sense. It's great to write about someone who's still alive because you get to meet Moses. Didn't talk to me for the first couple of years of the book. Then we had seven interviews. Soon as I started asking questions. Pamela the interviews were over but they will long sessions and I really got to look at him with Johnson. You felt okay. I came along just too late. He had died just three years before was great about him was that he died so young he would have been only sixty seven when I started. He darted sixty four that everyone was still alive. He had I think twelve people in Johnson City High School. When he was there they were all there to be viewed. But you can't make up for not meeting and talking to the person writing about you just can't do feel that absence and working on the Johnson. Yes you do everything you can to overcome that you know you interview the people closest to him over and over and over again constantly asking them what was he like. If I was standing next to you what would I see him doing? So you try to get a feeling of him now. We have these telephone transcripts where you hear him talking hundreds and hundreds of hours you can listen to him talking and see how he deals with people and how he gets what he wants from people. That's always amazing to me. Has that changed the way that you've been doing your research having access to those types a change the writing of history in general like on the Gulf of Tonkin incident which has been sort of mystery. What really happened there. How many attacks were there? On our destroyers. You know that led Johnson to launch these launch bombing attacks on North Vietnam. Now you actually hear the communications between Robert McNamara. The Secretary of Defense Cincpac the admiral at Honolulu and the commander of the fleet. That's an in Viet Nam. You hear this and what was really going on in real time the other aspect of your interviewing that. I thought was so interesting that you write about in this new book working is the delicacy of interviews and especially when you get to touchy subjects. And they'll you didn't interview Johnson for the book did Interview Lady Bird and tell the story about how you and when you approached the subject of Johnson's longtime affair with Alice Marsh. Well when Johnson is in the Pacific during World War. Two year allowed easing Australia. You're allowed one telephone. Call the senator from Texas. Just Johnson has to decide whether to run again for the House of Representatives or to run for senator. I'm going through all the correspondents and suddenly in the middle of it. There is a telegram from someone sewing. Alice I've never heard of Alice. She appears in no book and it says Lyndon everyone else that happened to me in the White House. Everyone else thinks you should run for the Senate. I think you should run for the house. Please try to cool love Alice. I said WHO is Alice. Who was the person that he makes the only one telephone call? And who's giving political advice which he follows shortly after that? So that's you know. An example of going through the papers by luck her sister and best friend show up at the Johnson Library and ask to see me and I go down to see them and they say you know we wanna tell you about a woman named Alice Marsh. We don't want to portray to some Bimbo. She was really very important in Johnson's life. And they told me the whole story of this Lauren and significant relationship and his life. So how do you then? Ask Lady Bird. You know panel. That's the only interview I ever had in my life where I couldn't bring myself to look at the person I was interviewing. Alice was a small town girl. She turned herself into the brilliant Washington. Hostess Brilliant Brilliant Salons and she came from a little town called Morlin. Now no one would go to the mall. And unless they were looking for inflammation analysis a little town in the middle of nowhere and I never know I went up there and we learned about her. And how remarkable she was but all of a sudden we have a mutual friend. Who lived in Morlin? Who calls me in a panic and says the bird in Texas? Everybody Calls Lady Bird Bird. Bird and always. You've been in Marlin. So she knows you know about Al. Assad said well that had to be if it doesn't concern me but her secretary then shows up at my desk in the reading room says Mrs Johnson would like to see you out at the ranch this weekend. We had been meeting in her office so we sit down at the dining table. She's at the head of the table. I might her right. Hand my stenographer's notebook like like the one you use is is down on my right hand taking notes and without preamble. She starts to talk about Alice Quiz. How elegance she was how sophisticated she was how she taught. Linden things and everything that she taught him. He followed the rest of his life. You don't hear these lawn when she met him. He was this new congressman very awkward with Lorne Gang Leo Arms. She said turn them into an asset. Always wear shirts with French. Cuffs and very nice cufflinks. So when people's attention is cool to them it's called in in a in a good way. She told him. We're kind of Necktie to favor. Countess Myers Tie. But most of all at crucial elements in life. It was her advice that he followed an in a number of cases one in particular. It's not exaggerating. Very much to say she saved. His career is takes a moment to tell. But it's it's interesting his early careers financed by a very fierce huge Texas contractor. Herman Brown Brown and Root and Herman was prepared to keep financing his Roy and in return Johnson was getting huge contracts for Brown and root when all of a sudden they had a falling out Lyndon Johnson was getting them authorization to build a dam which they wanted but Linden wandered low. Rent Housing Project built in Boston in what was a very poor Mexican American neighborhood. The houses in that neighborhood were owned by Herman Brown. The tenants were paying rent to him. They were very profitable and he was enraged at Linden wanted to condemn them for his housing project and his chief lobbyist and his chief lawyer talked. Instead you know Herman was about to turn on Linden and when Herman turned on you he never turned back when Alice here is about this and invites them both down to Greatest Stadium Virginia. She sits down at her table. And says why don't you just compromise give Herman the damaging winds and the land and all of a sudden everything was okay. So Lady Bird starts talking not only about her elegance. She says the quotes are in the book. She was so sophisticated so beautiful. I remember her neck succession of wonderful beautiful dresses and me in well not so wonderful. And and then she said you know Lyndon Basically Linden always followed Alice's vice during that whole interview I have to say my head. Just stay down and I took notes. I couldn't look at her so that was done. The next week we went back to ordinary interview she just launched into it without you. Even though I you know I sometimes think I know something about politics. I'm really glad I don't have to write about. Women never understood why she did
What exactly are 'war powers' and why is Congress voting on them?
"The United States moves with me to translate into action the United Nations call to arms against the aggressor American occupation troops in Japan are hurried to the defense of the Korean Republic combat units of the United States Marine Corps arrive in Vietnam joining other marines already there the peak in the pattern was Lyndon Johnson's Gulf of Tonkin resolution in nineteen sixty four that led to the escalation of the Vietnam War last year act of aggression directly around persons okay brings home to all of us in the United States once a restaurant of the peace and security in Southeast Asia nearly a decade later as that conflict had stretched into another president's second term Congress rallied to reassert its constitutional role good evening the Congress of the United States in a historic action today made effective a limitation on the powers of the president to make war in nineteen seventy three democratic majorities in both chambers past the war powers resolution requiring the president to notify Congress within forty eight hours when troops were sent into harm's way that legislation also required president to end any foreign military action after sixty days unless Congress had declared war or passed an authorization for the use of military force a phrase that's come to be known as in a U. M. F. since then however the law has fallen short of its author's intent in part because presidents found ways to work around it and also because Congress has shown itself willing to follow the president's lead in matters of foreign conflict there's a new war this morning in the Persian Gulf a rock turns to blood shed to settle its oil price dispute with quite a different level of difficulty arose after Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein invaded his neighbor country of Kuwait in nineteen ninety this is the seventh week of operation desert shield and now they're about a hundred fifty thousand American military in the region and the number is growing every day president George H. W. bush deployed hundreds of thousands of US troops to the Persian Gulf region before Congress had taken a vote to authorize I know what it's like to have fallen comrades and see young kids die in battle and it's only the president it should be asked to make the decision Congress did authorize that use of force by relatively narrow margins in January of nineteen ninety one and the first Persian Gulf War began just days later since then we have seen presidents outmaneuver Congress again and again president Bill Clinton in the Balkans and later president Obama battling ISIS in Iraq and Syria president George W. bush called for two authorizations for the use of military force the first just days after the terror attacks of September eleventh two thousand one I was immediately approved military action against terrorists wherever they might be and bush soon send forces to Afghanistan good afternoon on my orders the United States military has begun strikes against al Qaeda terrorist training camps and military installations of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan the following year Congress debated and approved another authorization this one focusing on a rock the debate was emotional but in the end the vote empowering President Bush to go to war with Iraq was larger than the vote eleven years ago authorizing his father to take on Saddam Hussein one or both of these measures has been cited to justify it literally thousands of drone strikes and other military actions against those the US has labeled terrorists ever since it appears the US military has launched a missile strike in a rock including the one that killed Iranian commander customs money this month a revered Ronnie in general and one of the country's most powerful military leaders is considered by the you asked to be a terrorist president trump has often describe bush's two thousand three invasion and occupation of Iraq as quote the worst single mistake on quote in the history of US foreign policy but President Bush can at least argue he submitted his request to Congress before his invasion of Iraq began trump has yet to seek congressional approval for any of his actions in the Middle East very very nearly three thousand additional American troops have been ordered to the Middle East tonight at midnight and in the latest instance in the did not even inform congressional leaders of his plans other than via Twitter he said some of his opponents among the leaders in Congress could not be trusted with the information in that atmosphere of mutual distrust it is hard to see how the founding fathers ideal of shared powers could succeed in war making or any other aspect of national

"tonkin" Discussed on The Lawfare Podcast
"Rationality statement really does make one despair, and especially when juxtaposed against the giants stake, it was made into three and I was obsessed still am by large by the Gulf of Tonkin incidents in nineteen sixty three sixty four I remember as undergraduate reading high of stone in the New York review of books written these articles about health of talk, Ken, the resolution that followed authorized war or seemingly authorized, the war ended. Opera it was clearly, it was clear. Also that liberal myth that congress didn't authorize more. You made that clear. Yes. So then the questions remained whether two incidents in the Gulf of Tonkin early one. Right. And if there was only one who knew that and win. Now, if you listen to Johnson's phone calls during that period of time, it's pretty clear to me. Johnson knew it, there was no second attack in during my interview with McNamara. I asked him. Why did you change in retrospect, he said, I didn't change from the hardback to the paperback. So I didn't change it at all. I what about the footnote on the Gulf of Tonkin said, oh, that? He said because he learned for the first time when he was in Hanoi in the nineties, the that attack had not occurred you live. It brings me to something that really deeply fascinates mates really behind all of the work that I do is self deception. Do I believe that McNamara convinced himself that he didn't know it a kind of do? But can I answer that one way or the other I find it extrordinary that he wouldn't know? So what you just said that you're a lot of films are about south deception that captures for me was great films, maybe including my own, I wouldn't exempt myself himself of we'll get to that. But you really have them they're right on the camera asking them. You only have a few shots at this, and you got it a couple of times, and it's clear when they're amping. This is true Rumsfeld more than Matt Moore, even Vince. Sometimes it's true that you ask the right question, you have American camera, and you can see in their face that either they're lying, or they don't understand that. They're deceiving themselves. And you can see it comes through, and we are all like this to some degree. But you capture that in some very important, but to nice thing to hear. I thought it was having that face right in the middle of the screen and watch every little facial expression and the cameras days, I'm no phone person. But the cameras zoomed in for a long time in the little twitches in the little, pauses at it really, if he's me that's, that's on the service throughout all this. Self-deception. Also, can we ever really know the truth? I mean that's an obvious thing but it's. So much of those two films and abandoned, poem, which will get to in a second seemed to have that the I wanna move onto Bandon if I can the van and film. So it's call this is to say what the status of it is at our understand what is the painful topic. But what is most certainly is a painful tippety my talking about knob at all. So what, what's the deal you make film? You're famous belt maker. It's great fell. What's the deal, this is called the film is called American Dharma? We'll talk about what that means in a second. But can you explain why this film has not been publicly available? I knew there was going to be trouble. I thought a routine amount of trouble, same trouble that I had McNamara film Rumsfeld film. It would be no different than kind. I was wrong. The film premiered at the Venice film festival and either the day or two days before the..

"Forget greatest Boyce nineteen eighty six hours together, and they just released it this morning online. What if what was doing? This was a solo album that he was putting together back in nineteen Eighty-six did not release the song so very much. Time waits for no one here. It is what, what a wonderful good fine Albert. Hey, Joe, good morning to you a lot to get into Frank. I know you're happy drones being shot down. One of you could see a press conference today. I'm predicting secretary of state. Mike Pompeo John Bolton. The president, you can't you can't just take down. First of all, is it verified? This is an anonymous source, and that they're in is not enough to start a war with that information. Wouldn't think so. I mean, we've certainly gone to war for less right Gulf of Tonkin incident, the war in Iraq. But so. There are two things that give me some solace. Maybe three one is, you know, President Trump is a non interventionist, and he has very good instincts when it comes to this stuff does many always follows his instincts. Sometimes he does get sort of side fooled, but he gets convinced by some of his advisors to take a different path. But the president is very good instincts. So I think he's going to do the right thing here too was reported yesterday that the president is talking pretty frequently with Tucker Carlson about the Iran situation and Tucker Carlson has been able to explain better than anyone. Why what we're doing is so foolish, and then three separate story. He apparently told his aides yesterday behind the scenes that they better tone, down the rhetoric on, Ron and do so in a hurry. So there's an attempt to deescalate what what's happening? The president was has been talking to Tucker Carlson. Yes. Like arts. What's being reported? Really? Yeah, I mean, you know, he frequently does that he has these folks that he checks in with decker calls knows allow. Clearly when the smartest absolute on television in any regard. And, and sometimes he makes a lot, a lot of a lot of sense where I say, take them out. Then he's why we should not do that. But at, but if they shut down the Joan, you gotta be tallied. Somehow, if that indeed. I think the big question, Mark is it was shot down over international space as the Iranians are claiming excuse me, as the Americans are claiming or was it over a running space now, if it's over a Ronnie in space and they're shooting down in American drone over their own airspace. Then I think this very little justification for any sort of a retaliation, if it's under international space, then I think then maybe it's a different situation but people should make no mistake. No. So the, the, the general Cellamare salami. Exactly right. The he Lincoln. All right. I'm general. Super Saudis coming. I knew I soon as I said it by title. I knew I was, I was going to be open yourself up there, but no general private Martha della. Hey, loni. Though he never he's never around.

So general salami said that we do. General S b like like must or or. This kinda hoagie kind of see. As an observant he shouldn't be eating. Anyway. That's right. But so he said, we do not intend to engage in war with any country, but we're completely ready for the ready for the war. Today's incident is a clear sign of this accurate message. So you have Ronnie, and salami who are not necessarily always on the same page and. Baloney. He said this whole thing full of baloney. Great quote, come on. That's actually pretty good. That may require violate your. Baloney metro salami with. Got to put that out of the tweet, we think morning. Joe Joe Salamis full of baloney. Hey..

"Breaking on through the other side L Tonkin Dari Nokia in on the Dan lebatardshow. Tomorrow's they've never never worked together. That's gonna be awesome Michalis an I'd never finished up strong here. One person not happy about thanksgiving. Kyrie Irving after being wished to happy thanksgiving by reporter following the Celtics lost the next up at the Celtics five hundred record. Now Irving retorted doesn't sell the holiday before saying at thanksgiving. Tweet. He used the words it shouldn't be used a professional setting. He meant no disrespect to the holiday, and those who celebrated respectfully is mother was a descendant of the standing rock Sioux tribe told NBC sports Boston is issues of the holiday stem from his native American heritage understandable. If you are of that heritage why you would look at at this holiday, a certain way, I think we're sort of beyond oftentimes something there's a reason something originates, and then it becomes something else. Lucien correct. And I think we're not necessarily celebrating thanksgiving because of what happened with the pilgrims and the native Americans back in the sixteen hundreds whatever we're doing it more as a sign of thanks for our family and friends what we have at the end of the year kind of thing before we get to Christmas. So I know what he's saying from historical standpoint. Not technically while we celebrate today. Right. Gratitude is the theme. Yes. Before we get to some clapback the second one other story story they want to get your take on Adrian Peterson. Sometimes still uses a belt on his son. I saw this is are you kidding? He told bleach report he the disciplined my son. Is speaking the other day with a belt? This is notable in case to jog your memory. He was suspended the NFL two thousand fourteen after being charged with felony child abuse for using a switch to spank his then four year old son. He also says he disciplines his kids in other ways have them do wall squats sitting timeout or taking with electrons last year. I do as well taken try saying out fine. But anyway, the belt I mean, what I I shouldn't be surprised. He still does it surprise. He admitted it was such candor. We'll see we could have a whole hour on this particular subject, and you're going to get different answers. Based on a where you were were you grew up where you were raised and how old you are. It's a generational thing. But it's also a cultural thing. Yeah. I'm old enough and was born in the south where that was calm. Place. I was disciplined with belts switches like my mom would make me go get my own switch. So you have the physical pain, and then the mental anguish of going to get some the beat your own ads with right? Just think about that. Right. But I never felt like I was abused right discipline and being abused thing. But people believe the manner in which you discipline is automatic abuse. Some people believe that my mother clearly didn't believe that. My mother was a social worker. Okay. My mother was a social worker she did with people who are actually being abused. But she's using things to discipline me that other people could see it as that way. But she saw differently. I saw it differently. Now, I don't have kids right now. Would I do that? I don't think I would. But I can't say for certain I really can't just because of my culture upbringing. But the thing that got me about the story is that I find that's who he is what he believes. And that's what he continues to do. But then the agent comes out and trust it on the reporter said that he he used his trust in a in a deceitful way. No. He didn't know he didn't. He asked a question and Adrian Peterson answered it if he didn't want to go there all say was you know, what I'm not going to go there for the age of the comeback and try to take a little pressure off of the situation. No, he's a grown man who can answer a question. He did. And that's just how he feels any repercussions beyond. This. Do you think the Redskins talk Adrian Peterson dizzy NFL center? Is this just a story go? Wow. Okay. Well, I think they let it slide and we're into thanksgiving holiday. A lot of people probably would pay that much attention to it. You kind of let it slide. Look, Einstein why people trip on that. I really do. But also group in school where we had paddling in school. Like I had one in high school. I got a paddling in high school. That's crazy. Right. And this was night time and place. Nine I got a paddling as a junior in high school, right? That's intense. But again, it's it's cultural it's generational is it happening today. No. But sometimes I'm in the stores. I'm like man, somebody needs to be della, boys. But. Just to clamoring for punishment. Give us some clapback. So we've got a minute left. Okay.

"They conspired against Alex Jones because he was a conspiracy theorist. It's almost like the Whitney Cummings example. They proved him right with their attack Facebook, Facebook, apple, like all these giant companies banned him on the same day proving that they conspired against him because he's a conspiracy theories. We live in a country with the Gulf Tonkin and these proven conspiracies like the government was setting up shooting down airliner to start a war with Cuba like these aren't. These aren't crazy thoughts like the Federal Reserve is in part of America. It's like our entire money system is based on a story like almost like the big friendly giants. So the fat when you when you get when you get hep to the war stuff. I mean, that's when like the whole idea of someone being accused of being a conspiracy theorist, just it loses all of its gravity, all of its weight to it because I mean, it's not like like every single war every single war. We are lied into a group of people who get together and plan out the war, and it's just it's like everyone every one of them the war in Libya the war in Iraq. The fuck like every God damn one of them. And then of course, Vietnam, like you mentioned the World War One. And then you see the other plans where they were planning on line to get us into other wars. So it's not, you know. After you realize that it's like, oh, yeah. Well, it makes sense that people would have a healthy level of conspiracy and make sense that people don't trust. This covers. And you know, and then you could also look at a lot of other light conspiracies like, look, I mean, the banker bailouts and stuff like that. I mean, these are a group of men in closed door meetings who conspire to steal everybody else's money and bail out their friends who tanked the economy. So no, I agree with you on that. And I do think that there's gotta be like when you were saying that I, they came for the Jews thing and referencing Cavanaugh. One of the things that's really amazing to me about, you know, particularly on the left is how. How could any white man get any straight white man be going along with this stuff? It's like, what? Self way straightaway? Yeah, like like you would look at Cava and not a little bit think to yourself. You really are like the ju- helping Nazis round up other Jews, like you realize you're to. Yeah, you're fucking source in this shit, like win self agent of it. Yeah. Well, that's a lot of black people are moving away from the Democrats as well because of how they reacted to because it's not about being democrat Republican, it's being allowed to have your thoughts. And I personally a few black dudes that saw that. And these are diehard. They hate Republicans and they said they saw how they were like, oh, no, but you can't be a Republican and they're like, wait what it's like. So we can't. We've, you know, and, and that's one reason why I think the left took that movie get out and made sure it had one hundred per se. And rotten tomatoes, and because it was mocking liberals, right? I voted for Obama third time dog. That's why they killed. Malcolm x. dude, started understanding some stuff, and he was talking about how the liberal is actually the enemy of the black man and they took him out. Yeah. Is now a friend yet and he's talking about like the nature of the state Malcolm x. toward the end had a whole lot of really interesting shit to say, and then he conveniently met his a his fate. I think you're right to me with Konya in general. It's like I haven't found anything that he's actually said to be that interesting. Never a guy who I've looked to for my intellectual cues before, but the action to him is really interesting. The reaction or so panicked that own. I got like it's kind of. It reminds me of the situation with you as well where it's like Hollywood, so takes it for granted that if there's one hundred of them and one of them feels differently than the rest of them, they think it's like fucking a huge problem. And you're like, you do realize sixty three million people voted for Donald Trump or something like that..
