"Yeah it's creepy. You don't know what he's going to do like you've already known that he's a really bad guy and then all of a sudden they start singing. You've got the whole world in his hands and he's holding this child. It's disturbing that's in your like. Is he going to murder this child because you assume he would do that because of how bad they've already like propped them up to be and then this other bad? Guy Nicholas Cage or Cameron Poe. You think he's the bad guy but he ends up saving the plane saving all these people. He's a good guy because he was in the army before this. It's like I'm like King. You know I mean Nicholas Cage can be a good joe exotic but because of this role. That's why exotic. I think you're right. I don't know I loved it. I watched it all the time. I think it's really great. It's a fun movie. It actually is a pretty good movie. They're not going to disagree with you. Who's this other guy? I'm Michael Karp. Dunkin was more. Yeah he's in it too but there's the other guy that was the cop and I can't remember who it was. Let me see. Everybody will know him when I find out who it is. Shoot the Jerry Bruckheimer movie by the way. But I don't know this is when Nicholas Cage was like yes. John Malkovich John Cusak in elementary thing. Ramos. Not Michael Clark down. It was being rame. Sorry Right Danny Trae. Oh yeah forgot Dave Chapelle PELS in it yet. Tons of people are in this movie and it is so good at gross over two hundred twenty four million dollars on a production budget of seventy five million tells you it's not a bad movie. Definitely I loved it. It's on my top ten. It will always be in my top ten for ninety movies because it is Sochi. Perfect number was up for you. Sorry Seven summit so my number six series. Yes Oh this is one where I might get a an okay. I want to throw some out there real quick because when I was talking about Desperado jumped in my mind like Quentin Tarantino one of my favorite filmmakers of all time and then I thought about on like well I base my list off of. Imdb just how. We did it for the eight movies based the nineties movies. Stop the top one hundred. I M D movement. Imdb movies so he didn't base it off of like what you like. No no I looked at the top one hundred and I picked my top ten out of that on my own. Oh Yeah but you know I looked at it and I don't. I didn't put any Quentin Tarantino movies on my top ten because I don't really consider them action movies right and there is a specific like I don't know there's like a specific thing that we considered action movies. There's a I don't know why. But like Quentin Tarantino movies to me. Don't feel like action movies so I didn't on my list like pulp. Fiction is one of my favorite movies of all time. Jackie Brown of my favorite movies action. Yeah so I didn't throw them on but I thought that was odd when I started thinking about it because I threw Robert Rodriguez movie an which is very similar to Quentin Tarantino movie but anyway two point. Yeah I just want to throw that out there. Do we already did Gwen Tarantino List. At one time in this podcast but we. It wasn't an official. We can do it official one anyway. My number six is a movie that a lot of people might not even remember honestly came out in one thousand nine hundred nine. It had George Clooney Mark Wahlberg and Ice Cube in it three kings yup one of my favorite movies of all time. And I'm not even kidding about that really. It's a Spike Jones movie and it isn't during the Iraq war and they're like basically on a heist to steal. Yeah but it was the first one. Oh Desert Storm. Now they are on a heist to steal gold from one of Saddam Hussein's bunkers. Like for most of my young life up until probably. I was in college. This was one of my favorite movies of all time. And probably even still is still is one of my favorite movies of all time. Yes it's not really. I don't know if it's really an action movie. Although I think it is yes. It is absolutely unbelievable movie that I think a lot of people probably haven't seen I have. Yeah so I think you should go out of your way to check out everything George and Mark Wahlberg and ice cube. All three of them work very well together in this movie they are. It's kind of. I think it was like an independent movie but gross two hundred seven million dollars on a forty dollar budget. Spike Jones. Obviously is a huge. Yeah he did like a lot of movies. What's one this jumping in my head to spike Jones's did spike downs? I know he did where the wild things are but I think he did. Yeah being John Malkovich. He did adaptation which is one of my favorite movies of all time with Nicholas Cage. Have you ever seen adaptation? I have basically everything Nicholas Cage. He One Academy Award for that movie anyway. He he did her to with Joaquin Phoenix Anyway. So three kings great movie George. Clooney love it. That's number six mine. Number six is not anywhere close to yours but it's another nostalgia pick because that's what I do. I pick movies that I remember from the nineties that I watched all the time right. Yeah because there are things that I love these are movies that I love and this involves Kiana raves. Okay movie that would be Point break speed. Oh yeah okay I know I know I get it. No it's fine actually wrote it down here just not most people's top ten for action movies like it's not necessarily like actually made me all that made me think about is the fact that point break is not my role right What a great movie though so I get. It's not like something you would acclaim as the best acting in the world. No sure you wouldn't but nick is phenomenal because it's early in his career. He's doing a like as much as he possibly can. Most good is that Sandra Bullock Movie. Sandra bullock is fanning. The best. Yes Andy Bullock. Is The one driving the bus folks? Yeah and if you don't know they have to keep it above fifty miles an hour fifty five miles an hour or they'll all blow up. Spoilers that's nerve wracking yeah it no it is there's GonNa Reeves is like busted. Open hatches in the bottom of the bus hanging underneath. He's fighting that one guy. I think Jeff Daniels is the bad guy. I don't remember. I think he know Dennis. Hopper freaking Dennis Hopper is a bad guy you mean Dennis Hopper from waterworld. All the time walled. Don't even get me started waterworld because waterworld is one of my favorite. That's was that an movie. Yeah definitely List now I should have put it on the Postman's list either so we're GONNA have to Redo this anyway. Dennis Hopper is like the ultimate bad guy every time you see him even if he's acting as a good guy you assume he's the bad guy he looks like a bad guy. He is a bad guy in this movie. And Cana ribs defeats him. Because he's the best and Sandy Bullock Anne. Her name is in the movie Knows how to drive a frequent bus man. That's right I love speed. Watch speed right now. All right I'M GONNA go with my number five. Which is another one top top. Five here folks. Here's a film that a lot of people might not even remember or think about but it is a a nine nine hundred. Ninety eight action thriller directed by the younger brother of Sir. Ridley Scott Mr Tony Scott famous director produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. Because it's the ninety. Yeah Starring a little a fledgling star called Will Smith. Oh and also a veteran actor called Gene Hackman. Is this enemy of the state. You're correct sir. It is and the State Jon Voight Lisa Bone on Jon. Voight great great movie. I have loved this movie ever since I was a kid. I've it's been always in Mike. My top ten or twenty movies of all time yeah. I don't know why I gravitated towards this movie that everybody else in the world forgot but no. I didn't forget it. I absolutely loved this movie. I think it was first of all it was one of the first I will. Smith is fantastic as his phenomenal knack. Really Great in all movies and this I think was probably post Independence Day. Which was probably his but it was. You know this is gene. Hackman is amazing. This movie as well freaking good. I just absolutely loved this movie. I see on TV now. And I stop and watch the entire thing. Yeah if I see like on. Tbs Yeah that's where you're going to see sa enemy the estate absolutely love it. That's my number five. My number five is a again like all of my picks are things that I have enjoyed in my childhood and remember watching from the nineties like the nineties for something that I grew up in right so like. That's those of the movies that I remember are from the ninety so they may be different than like critically acclaimed movies. This movie I picked as number five because it was like the Modern Day James Bond to me and I watched de and the mission impossible. Well that's not James by it is it's like the modern. Dame's like the modern James Bond movies all through the nineties. I understand a little Guinea. What's his name Pierce Brosnan? Yeah Pierce Brosnan. I get it a movie called Goldeneye. I understand we'll get to that. The world is not enough. I'm saying it's a modern day. United States version of James Bond. Like it was a newer take on a character similar to that plus. I mean age and dreamy a thriller that had to do with crime and You know a secret agent type person it was a new take was the different than James Bond but my mom announce James Let's change.

"two hundred twenty four million dollars" Discussed on 550 KFYI
"An Alexa and I like that I can ask Alexa if you want to put the smart in your smart speaker all of a sudden I hereby fifty FYI on I heart radio you are listening to conservative circus I am your ring master James at C. Harris our next guest well he was a Mike Baker a former coal covert operations officer with the Central Intelligence Agency a president and co founder of the private intelligence and security firm a frequent guest on fox news channel in current producer and script advisor to the entertainment industry and Mike it is my understanding that you are in a bunker somewhere the northwest writing out the goal but nineteen pandemic on a scale of one to ten how would you rank the dangers of this pandemic to your work as a C. I. A. operative well first of all thank you very much and and yeah the reception remarkably good down here at the Barker so I would say look at this pandemic you know it's it's it shouldn't be a surprise to you to anyone but we should have frankly and we did you don't talk about this in terms of the Intel community and concerns over you know what's coming down the pike there was an awareness that you usually this will not be the last one will have another one you know we had previously issues like this whether it's H. one N. one of sars and so we have to we have to get smarter I guess is the point we have to stop acting like every time something like this happens yeah and then talk about sort of the general public we we have to stop acting like it's the first time right and so we I think there's this this collective attention deficit disorder and particularly in the U. S. here where we we seem to just it's too easy for us to move from one thing to the next we don't necessarily remember what happened even I you know about it previous month and you know then we keep getting distracted by the next shiny object it flies by so I'm hoping we come out of this we are coming out of it we've been will do just fine look markets are extremely resilient you know global gonna do just fine but we need to take some lessons from it and be smarter and better prepared to handle the next one so when you say take lessons from this Michael what are some of the lessons that you think we need to learn as a society well first for most I think we need to get our heads around the idea that that China the regime in China the Communist Party is first and foremost and always will be concerned with maintaining power and and keeping control of its population so we should never expect anything coming out of there to be accurate or transparent so that's the first point we need to take all the reporting whether it's on the next pandemic that occurs that made originate there or whether it's other economic reporting on military buildup or whatever it might be you take with a grain of salt so that would be the the first step but it coming out of this I think we need to do a real artist assessment as to how we as a as a global community handle this problem what we do better next time around how do we better prepare what about our manufacturing you know do we move some more of our pharmaceutical manufacturing back to the U. S. if that's possible yes these are the sort of things we should be looking at Mike Baker is a former covert operations officer with the C. I. A. he is in the center ring in your television show black files declassified you investigate top secret government programs now I gotta ask you this because I got you on the phone is the corona virus a top secret program of the Chinese government you know I think if there there's there's rumors you know rampant about you know what this thing actually created in in a lab in Wuhan and Beijing they have a you know a very high the security by by a bio lab in Wuhan and that has been the subject of of concern in the past but the U. S. state department you know noted that back in early two thousand eighteen they noted that the lab there was concern that they didn't have sufficient protocols in place for security for containment they didn't have enough properly trained technicians and so you know the state department was was basically making the argument that the US should provide them with more support and frankly the national institutes of health the nat NIH and some other academic grants have been supporting that lab in one of the past few years so but do I think that it it started there I I think it it's not likely I think it it was a naturally occurring strain corona virus I think that it probably was examined in the lab and the weather was altered on purpose or accidentally whether it was improperly handled I think that's plausible and I think further intelligence work will probably prove that out but right now that's a work in progress still alive if they come from the wet lab I'm wondering how come China you know they're able to have so much control over their people how come they're not able just to shut those wet labs down seeing they create a subcommittee of the pandemic's we've seen in the last fifty years well it's a it's a good question but feel the web marketing in China R. it is not just in China there you know that fairly common throughout Southeast Asia in Asia are a primary source of of food shopping you know for with the population there and so you know it's it's it's tougher than it sounds these that we're not talking about just a handful of these these what markets and and not all of them are you know this is the dealing and exotic animals and bathroom whatever it may be a lot of them are just providing normal you know foodstuffs and and supplies for the population so it's a it's a tougher issue than that but yeah I mean it is something that you think maybe they they need to crack down further on some aspects of some of those markets but again they did that the Chinese government has had a long history of options peace station lack of transparency in their reporting for whatever the issue may be so again we shouldn't be shocked by the fact that you know early days the Chinese regime of the government you know they didn't allow the World Health Organization officials in we have to be very skeptical about the reporting that was coming out and that exponentially you know worsened this crisis I don't think there's any doubt about that this I tell you what I I would appreciate I appreciate you all this topic considering and I want to have you back on as we get closer to re opening because I think there's more information that's going to be coming out about about the about these this virus this origins the impact it has on the country Mike Baker I want to thank you very much for your time it these the things that we're learning about China I think my bigger is right we got to take with a grain of salt we we think we're being reported to truth we think that we're being we're being up to date or being brought up to date up to speed on what's happening with the Wuhan virus the reality is we really don't know and this is part of the reason why president trump was so forceful this week with the World Health Organization because the state of digging down for the truth the World Health Organization ended up sort of covering for China so when we start talking about the the wet markets the Noles labs all this stuff is is curious because the rumor is out there and at first we were told that that was a conspiracy theory but the reality is I mean we should be able to ask these questions because of just how the freaky nature of this virus and the things we're being told about it coming from Europe and from the United States of America saw yeah we're going to touch base again we got the the the trial's going under way in South Dakota also we got stimulus checks are being handed out who is getting them and who will not we

"two hundred twenty four million dollars" Discussed on KSFO-AM
"Great economic success in history in the making when you break record after record low in terms of what the best unemployment lowest unemployment now since nineteen sixty nine the record low unemployment for African Americans Hispanic Americans Asian Americans women in the U. workplace youth unemployment African American youth unemployment compare that to Bloomberg I'm so sorry I'm successful I mean it's kind of interesting but I would argue in many ways we are living in a very historic time period whether you like Donald Trump or not he is a transformational president I don't think the presidency will ever be the same in as much as I think the dynamics even of just social media usage alone and as a means of communicating with the American people and what we've we see these crowds of of tens of thousands inside and outside these arenas even in the freezing cold waiting to hear from their president but history get it the presidential history is always interesting though isn't it somebody that understands all the economic issues probably at a level that most of us will only M. B. for most of our lives is name David Rubenstein is the co founder co executive chairman of I'm sure many of you have heard it is called the Carlyle group out of Washington DC there are global and investment firm they manage two hundred and twenty four billion dollars quite a lot of money I'm and I got to but just by happenstance I buy met David at an event that I was speaking out down in Florida and I met his daughter and I met him and I had some time to talk to many handed me his book and the book is called the American story it's a compilation of interviews with master historians about US history like in David McCullough Jon Meacham and Walter Isaac said in so many different people and I've been reading and I can't put it that even people like Bob Woodward I don't agree with them Doris Kearns Goodwin they blink and we all know about that the team of rivals and I'm fascinated because I think we're living through history and we can learn from history and those that research these best selling books about history inspired me because you learn a lot of things number one the challenges that people face in their time how they overcome those challenges and how even though times change many of the problems remain the same anyway David is with us now how are you Sir very very well thank you very much John for having me and I enjoyed our brief conversation down in Florida well I talk more to your daughter you know you she's a firecracker man all man she's smart she's very I'm very well thank you I did not that's a nice way of putting it she's a she is a very sharp smart all I gotta say energetic I'm an enthusiastic investor and she works with you and I bet you're very proud of her well I am but you should also know that she was the co chairman of of Donald trump's campaign in Alaska as well she's a committed supporter of president trump and so anyway I just wanted to mention what this book was about but you mention this in one year and nearly done if you don't remember history you're condemned to relive it that's an old saying but the truth is we don't know the mistakes of the past you might make them again so that's why we should study history and who better to know about history than are members of Congress so six years ago I started program or once a month I interview a great American historian from only members of Congress and I took sixteen of the best interviews from the people you mentioned and put him in this compilation has assigned to be an easy way to kind of read about a major people in American history George Washington Abraham Lincoln's Thomas Jefferson support or important people or not presence like Charles Lindbergh Martin Luther king and I think the response has been pretty good and as you probably know from reading the book you know it's an easy kind of way to get through American history it's not like reading a text book and so I'd really encourage people to kind of learn about more about our history this is a sad situation three quarters of Americans seventy five percent recently failed to name the three branches of government one third of Americans cannot even name one branch of government and it turns out that that right now sixty percent of people in a recent survey said that justice Scalia is the Chief Justice of United States is obviously deceased you know to be a part of a citizen of this country if you're not born here you have to take a citizenship test after five years of residency ninety one percent of the people take that test pass the same test was given given took forty one thousand Americans were born in this country recently and in forty nine of the fifty states a majority of citizens failed this basic citizenship test only in Vermont that they pass so we should learn more about history and civics in if that way we can avoid the mistakes of past unfortunately don't teach American history very much anymore what do you take out of the lessons that you write about with the John Adams Jefferson Hamilton Ben Franklin Lincoln Lindbergh Martin Luther king junior L. B. J. Nixon I mean Chief Justice Roberts by the way which you included in the book and I learn things I didn't know about him well I would say about him interestingly when I interviewed him and I've been the chairman the Smithsonian for while he's the chance for so I got to know him when he interviewed him in front of members of Congress and I thought they should learn more about the Supreme Court I said you always want to be Chief Justice he said no if you wanna be a lawyer no what do you want to be when you're a little he said I want to be a historian I only cared about American history so we went to Harvard major history he came back from spring break it's in a cab at Logan airport says that to the cab driver please take me to harbor a cab drivers are you a student yes what you majoring in major in history cab driver set well when I was a student harbor that's what I majored in also so John decided maybe you should go to law school get a perfect any day but he's not he is there there is a theme this is all the always this push and pull of of freedom verses I guess they there's a maybe the best way to put it and and those that want to believe the promises that the government is going to be your caretaker and socialism and redistribution and higher taxes frankly wealth confiscation if you listen to Bolshevik Bernie or you know Mike Mike Bloomberg you know farmer might apologizing for being successful which is ridiculous to me I think we should celebrate success what but there is this poll that people say no no no we'll take care of your every need eight now the new green deal the estimates of ninety four trillion in ten years Medicare for all estimates are fifty two trillion in ten years we only taken for four and a half trillion a year you don't need a calculator to figure out none of that adds up which means these are false promises that could never be fulfilled and basically to get there you're going to confiscate everybody's wealth and nobody alive anything in hand handed a bomb a care work out well one of the things we learned from history is that campaign promises made in presidential campaigns are very difficult to upkeep and so you know we need to study history about the C. what is realistic and what's not in terms of what presidents can can deliver I also would add that when you study great men of history and great women of history what you learn is that despite the application of George Washington Abraham Lincoln they have their flaws like everybody and so today when you see a modern political figures we know their flaws because we see them up front but if you were we were living back up two hundred years ago we see the flaws of these other people are now so famous so nobody is perfect everybody has their warts and everybody you know make a just shattered my illusions I've I've I've thought since the day I was born I was perfect on seizing it we've all syndrome tribute acts there may be or you may be one of the few people that are perfect but generally it generally people have no only false and and fallen short that's that's simple and basic and fundamental and I think most people recognize that arm is there any how do you view as you look at the context of your book and all these historical figures yeah I believe very strongly that trump will go down president trump is a transformational president and so many different ways he's a he's a force of nature and I know he creates some polarization and then people that love him love him a lot I like the fact that he keeps promises and I like the fact that his foreign policy has been successful in his economic policies of ending burdensome regulation and and cutting taxes and and allowing the a free flow of America's energy resources for the first time and putting America first I think a working for the American people do you see it that way as you as you look at it through the prism of the people you feature in your book there's no doubt that some presidents are transformational it but Ronald Reagan might be said to be transformational what he did whatever Donald Trump does or doesn't do in terms of getting reelected there's no doubt that he has transformed the presidency in this respect presidents will communicate in the future much differently they did in the past before you had press secretary she didn't know what the president thought all the time now you know what the president thinks all the time and I think it might be difficult for future presidents to communicate and in the same way as we did in the past well that's one thing I think the president has made it clear that he really likes his space and he wants to make certain that that base is fully supportive of him and that's probably something other presidents might do is where he's spent a lot of time on his face others no doubt that the economy is as good as we've seen in our lifetime many people take credit for it generally the presidency United States get the most credit for it and interestingly a present United States who has a good economy and running for reelection hasn't lost since so I think it was William Howard Taft but he was running as a people last last question isn't running out of time here David Rubenstein is with us you know I I I would assume being the co executive chairman of a group like the Carlyle group at an investment firm managing two hundred twenty four million dollars I would assume you're pretty wealthy guy here's one thing I feel you know I everyone dreads what we seem to be getting old versus young rich versus poor and dividing Americans but when they have kind of figured out as I've gotten older and I kind of started out my life with nothing David I don't know how much you know about me but I learned that we're all renters in other words you think you own your home think you own your car you think your own your toys whatever it happens to be but the day you die somebody else to go live in your house ride your car and right around your boat or whatever else you have and then life and money does not make you happy well money doesn't make you happy for sure end of the most unhappy people I've ever met or heard really wealthy people many billionaires I know or tortured souls because they realize money doesn't make them happy the what makes you happy is a happy family life successful children healthy existence so you're healthy and also the most important thing is helping other people nobody gets as much pleasure out of life as has the money to help other people you help people that have poverty yep well sanitation needs that's the most important thing in life all right da David Rubenstein thank you so much for being with us my pleasure thank you very much or a hundred other book is
