"Country club. It is a really low cost country club for the con artist that are now populating is crooked social influencers or influencers. Please be aware be wary and do everything you can to independently verify some business opportunity, somebody is bringing your way. Okay, let's get to some questions. This one's from Ken in California. I want to visit South Korea as soon as the COVID travel restrictions are over. Any guess how long that will be? Now I see there's a new hoop you have to jump through with this K, ETA electronic Visa process. It looks like you need to travel with a smartphone to use it. I never travel internationally with a cell phone. Are we going to be expected to carry one in the future? That's a real privacy risk handing over passwords, bank account and social media logins to the government, plus all the health data my Apple watch collects. Right. Ken, first of all, when travel restrictions actually live for a lot of long haul Asian destinations who knows and the rules do change, they generally seem to get tighter over time instead of looser. I just read a story about people who had bought trips to Hong Kong and have ended up basically in these communists detention centers where they're kept for extremely long periods of time. They can't communicate with anybody. It's unbelievable. And travel to Asia is very, very dicey, obviously, South Korea is a democracy, 7th largest economy in the world. And I'm not comparing it to the behavior of the Chinese communists, but what is similar across Asia are very tight restrictions on travel. On the issue you raise virtually every government in the world, including the United States, reserves the right when you enter the country to seize your cell phone and see everything on it. And there have been many court cases about this happening in the United States. And what people do who have a lot of sensitive information that they don't want to worry about our own government returning the United States or another government is you enter a foreign country have access to is they buy what historically you spend called a burner phone. Just buy a prepaid phone with a plan on it that gets you what you need for the period of time of your trip. It'll be either a very old iPhone or a low end Android, you'll pay less than a $100 typically for one of these phones, maybe even a lot less for an Android. And then you use it as the phone on your trip. And that way you don't.
Former NYT Journalist Alex Berenson Exposes the Biggest COVID Lies
"I want to just reiterate the book title pandemia, how coronavirus hysteria took over our government rights and lives. So let me ask you a broad question and we can kind of navigate it. Has there been any evidence to show that the death count is there a difference to have dying with COVID or because of COVID? Is there truth to that line of questioning? So this is an interesting one. And this is one where I think because I'm not a conspirator conspiracy theorist. My my view on this is quite a bit more nuanced than it's made out to be. And you may have read or you may have heard, oh, only 6% of people who died from COVID actually died from COVID. You know, the CDC says. And that's not true. Okay. What the CDC said was there were no underlying conditions in 6% of people. Here's the thing, COVID definitely killed a lot of Americans and people around the world last year in this year. We know that because and I go into this in the book, overall deaths were up quite a bit last year in the United States and Europe and in other parts of the world. I mean, they weren't up nearly as much as you would think if you'd watch CNN and MSNBC all the time, but they were still up. A couple million people died from COVID last year. And, you know, 60 million people die worldwide, a couple million from COVID. So it's a real killer, but it isn't, you know, it isn't a top 5 killer. Here's the other thing. And this is the most important lie about COVID that's, you know, that was told from the very beginning. Most of those people were very old and very sick and many of them who weren't very old or very sick were morbidly obese, meaning their life expectancies in many cases they might be three months, 6 months, a year, two years. The idea that COVID strikes down people, not just in the prime of their lives, but sort of healthy 60 year olds is just not

"Is this like a almost like an immune response or have we just got fucking lucky? No, it's not lucky. I mean, the solution came to the problem. Yeah. So there was the problem, and they found a solution for it. We know satoshi found us to listen for the problem because in the first line of code, he wrote the bankers on the verge of a bailout. And so it wasn't lucky at all. They saw the problem that was happening. And they came up with a solution for it. Just like, just like all technological revolutions previous to that. Yeah. We're solving problems. Okay. Yeah. So yeah, it wasn't just lucky. But it does line up pretty well. So I think that's one of the piece. And I think when you look at the technology, if you look at the problems, and I think this is a bigger piece about the decentralized revolution overall, that I think has to be understood, especially in the Bitcoin versus crypto debate, right? Because again, solutions come to problems. Did the world need faster money? Not essentially Venmo and Visa worked pretty dang fast. Is that a problem? Was our money too slow, right? I mean, you could argue some aspects of international transfer and circumstance. But yeah, I see your point. So I think what the problems are is one. Well, it was really just one. It's the money printer. But if you think about it, we have centralization of the government, centralization of the power. Centralization of the money supply. We have an unlimited money supply, which is obviously causing all the problems that we have. We have we have a really big problem that we used to have a rule of law, common law from the UK, and then we had rule of law in the United States as well. And the law, the constitution was supposed to be easy to understand. We all should know what that means. And I could set my life, I could plan my life based off the law and you could plan your life based off the law. But today we're not ruled by law anymore. Today we're ruled by men who change the rules arbitrarily whenever they want. And we were just talking before we started recording about potentially travel restrictions coming up. I don't even know what the rules are going to be next month. I just had a live conference in Miami two weeks ago. I was going to do it after the first of the year, but I was afraid that we may not be able to travel after the first of the year. It's a fair point. We've got an active discussion. Danny's based in Australia and based in the UK and we're trying to plan ahead in the future. It's like, we don't know if he will be able to leave Australia. I don't know if I'll be able to see if leave the UK. Yeah. Okay. We can't have that. Nope. You can't live like.
Exposing the Ignorance and Evil Behind the Pandemic with Alex Berenson
"Yes, so let's just start there. I mean, February 2020, you were like investigating marijuana and other things and then the virus comes and you just decided, I'm gonna start looking into this and I started to come across your stuff on sub stack where, you know, Aaron gin, who you might know is another guy that was really into it in the early days. And I was so outspoken about the lockdowns and I was we were really into it because I really had nothing else to do. Everything was locked down. And I'm by no means an expert, but just my common sense instincts that something's wrong and you are so informative and so courageous early on, walk us through that because you probably never planned to be center stage of one of the most important medical issues that humanity's ever faced. No, I certainly didn't. And, you know, I was working on a book about really about U.S. drug policy that would have been and I hope to write one day still a follow-up to tell your children sort of broadly about this, you know, the epidemic of legalization, the sort of very broad campaign to legalize drugs that we've seen and not just cannabis, but really all drugs that we've seen in the last ten or 15 years. And so I was working on that and then of course, you know, like everybody else, I saw the videos coming out of China. I think we were all pretty nervous back in January and February. And then in March 2020 and I talk about this in pandemia, I've read that Neil Ferguson report the imperial college London report that said, oh, if we don't do anything, 2 million Americans will die, but even worse, if we do, if we do mitigate a million Americans will die and we need to really lock down our society. And, you know, within days that started to happen in New York and California and everywhere else, and then and then amazingly to me, Neil Ferguson totally changed his prediction. Ten days after releasing this report that really shocked the world and pushed the United States and Europe into Loch Ness, he basically said, oh, you know what? I was wrong. I was wrong by 95%. Did I say 500,000 deaths? I'm at 20,000. Okay, so look, the science or the data was evolving very fast around the coronavirus. Back at that time. And everybody's got the right to look at new data and change their views. But what was shocking to me was that the media was not willing to acknowledge what Ferguson had
Fresh update on "united states." discussed on Bloomberg Businessweek
"Usually come from the United States Hey David your series of books your on leadership historians really looking at the growth of this nation and how it's evolved and really talking with leaders as we constantly as you say these invention innovative cycles seem to be happening in less time here How do you see in terms of the next trends or the people that you think We really have got to keep an eye on it that really are going to be determining maybe the future trajectory and it can be politically as well as on a business and market front In the business world change is usually made as it is in the political world by people who are younger revolutions are not usually led by 70 year old people And as a general rule of thumb business change is usually led by demand from people who are in their 20s or 30 So how many people have now caught on with the kind of social media devices that really the young people really focused on and really helped generate same with computers the same with other kinds of services that we now rely on Many of these came from younger people So I think it's a very good thing if boards of directors and companies would get younger people on them I think it's a good idea for boards of trustees as well as nonprofits to have more and more people on them who are younger I rarely see on the boards that I serve people under the age of 40 but really that's where the change is coming from and probably it's not a bad idea to have younger people on these boards or in senior positions advising boards of directors or trustees So why do they resist What happens like if you bring that up and you're on a board and you say hey guys I love you all but we need to skew younger We've certainly seen the implications the benefits of having diversity on boards But what's the response Well sometimes people are always willing to nod and say yes let's take that opera We should think about it And then if you're not persistent you won't get very far So persistence is a real hallmark of leadership as I've said in my book So you've got to be persistent and I probably should be more persistent in pushing the idea of having younger people advise boards of directors and boards of trustees or being more senior positions because the consumers in the world the people that are changing things are really younger people Hey David let's talk markets here because you've seen lots of market cycles throughout your career Help us understand and put into context the one that we're seeing right now with the S&P 500 just continuing to grind higher and the COVID variants still making their way around the world and concerns about growth If the markets got anything wrong initially when COVID came about it was that the markets were going to be more resilient than they turned out And then people saw it In other words when we went through COVID people thought okay the economy is going to collapse and all of a sudden the market will collapse But as it turns out maybe because of federal intervention for sure but because of federal support and other factors the stock market actually has gone up and in the private equity world that I operate in Markets have never been better People are making staggering sums of money compared to what they did before So it's very difficult to predict Right now I would say that the federal government is probably going to increase interest rates next year That should have a somewhat impact on the market of probably reducing prices a bit And I suspect inflation won't go away So that might impede the market a bit But I don't see any collapse in the near term I don't see any kind of correction of any consequence We might have a one day two day blip because of something that happens But a ten or 15% market correction I don't see that for an enduring period of time in the next year or so David what is the productive conversation I mean you know I hear a Bloomberg we talk a lot about the feed We talk about inflation You guys were just touching on it But what is the productive conversation to have about that right now I think people should recognize that inflation was artificially low Historically throughout most of the 20th century inflation was three or 4% But for the last 20 years or so it was 2% or less That was abnormally low for a number of reasons Inflation got the double digit range when I was in The White House under president Carter we're not likely to see that again for a number of reasons The economy is much more global than it used to be We don't have a percentage of the workforce being unionized as before And the Federal Reserve is I think more sensitive to interest rates increases than they might have been many years ago So I don't really think we're going to have that problem again in terms of high inflation But I do think we'll have inflation probably above 2% and maybe for a while maybe somewhere between three and three and a half percent That might happen for the year or so That's not a calamity Yeah No that's a good thing to kind of remind everybody on that Last question David I mentioned your three books how to lead the American story the American experiment American experiment is just great conversations about our country and as it changed and evolved If you look for inspiration is there one particular interview that you might suggest to our audience at this point Well we're disappointing one to me was the interview with Ken burns I lived through the Vietnam War not as a combatant but as a civilian And he said that actually it's clear for the documentary evidence that the president of the United States who lived through the Vietnam War knew we could never win that war militarily They knew it It was just a question of the politics of it They didn't want to admit that they were going to withdraw and be seen as a loser So we fought a war with 58,000 Americans died and hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese died really for a political reason and not for a military reason All right we're going to leave it on that note David thank you so much as always David Rubenstein happy holidays be well be safe founder.
Will Mark Levin or Ric Grenell Ever Be Invited Back to the Reagan Library?
"And you know what Rick grinnell Because you've spoken out you will never be invited to that library because I have said the things I've said today and said yesterday I won't either despite the fact I've been the biggest draw there Now isn't it Let me just finish very quickly I think that's true But I'm the guy as U.S. ambassador to Germany When the Germans said for ten years they wouldn't put up a Reagan statue I redid the entire embassy of the United States overlooking the Brandenburg gate And I put up the Reagan
Fresh update on "united states." discussed on What Bitcoin Did
"Yeah, but the problem is is that the United States was set up as a republic, not democracy. And so each state was supposed to be independent. But now they've tried to make everything federal. And so I should be able to go from one state to another. But now everything's federal. So you don't really have that option anymore. You still kind of do, and they're still state rights. Don't get me wrong. And again, it's a spectrum, right? It's going the other way. But democracy is just mob rule. And if somebody, the state has gotten too big. And so the state can take my money and if people can vote themselves more of my money, they're always going to do that. And so in a democracy, the minority is always going to be oppressed by the majority. And so the poor majority is always going to steal from the rich minority, right? And so republic they're representative governments are then they're protected under that system. Right. Let's go through these cycles. Let's educate the people listening. Three specific cycles. I've got the notes here from the political social and cultural revolution that we have tech cycles and we also have the third one. Financial cycles, revolutions. So let's talk through these because these are so fucking interesting, man. Okay, so talk to me about political social and cultural. Yeah. So that's where it starts, right? So the H one pours into the next. So solutions are supposed to come to problems. And I say this supposed to because today with Central Bank money printing, we have money chasing problems that don't need to be solved. But so you have a culture and politics you have a problem and then technology will come along and solve that. And then technology drives financial markets. So they all kind of pour into each other. That's why they're all kind of connected. When you look at the political social cultural cycles, kind of like what we've already been talking about, it's reactionary. And so things get so bad one way, you have the other. Donald Trump comes along and he's so nationalist, right? He's wrapping himself in the American flag. He's a pro.
Ric Grenell: Fred Ryan's Management of Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Is Inconsistent
"It's really a shocking It's unacceptable and here's the other thing Mark is that the Reagan family And I don't mean just the personal family but The White House family the people that protect the Ronald Reagan legacy They allowed Fred Ryan to single handedly hone the legacy of Ronald Reagan into whatever Fred Ryan wants it to be I would argue that it's very inconsistent right now with who Ronald Reagan is Let me give you one perfect example And this is the situation that set me off Listening to secretary defense Lloyd Austin Go and be welcomed at the Ronald Reagan library to host the Reagan defense form To be ushered in national television and to be allowed to talk about China without saying a word about the incredible failure of Afghanistan We're just a few weeks away from this awful fallout and embarrassment for the United States And our defense secretary is bumbling through an interview and giving a speech on China and avoiding every possible question or push to answer some basic questions Why did we leave 10% of the Americans behind Ronald Reagan would have never led ten left 10% of the people behind And yet our Secretary of Defense is at the Reagan library not even answering the question mark Think

"I'm thinking if I need to get into the U.S., can I get into the U.S.? The U.S. feels like someone's safe to be in the UK. We've got a small army. And we've got no further amendment. So I'm thinking about these things. But I'm also trying to say, am I just being a bit weird here? Like is everything going to be okay? And I'm just not sure. I'm a little bit of the opposite where I, as an entrepreneur, I'm a permanent optimist. Okay. You have to be as an entrepreneur otherwise you didn't do anything. So I'm always an optimist and I'm checking as humans were horrible investors because of our emotions. So earlier you were talking about everything's for 40 years. It's been kind of like this way. I thought it would always be that way. So that's normalcy bias, right? So that's one problem we have. I have this, I'm always optimistic. And I think that it's going to be okay. But all the research tells me otherwise. And I keep thinking like it's going to be okay, but it's not what the data says. And so I'm trying to check my own bias of optimism when the reality is it's showing me something different. Like the storm's coming, ah, it's probably going to turn and miss the house. It's probably going to miss, right? And it usually does. But you can be a prepared optimist. You can be prepared optimistic. You should be. Yeah. And I want to be an optimist. And I sometimes think, hold on, is it just the cohort that I mean? Is it this cohort? You and I are friends. Yeah. Yeah. I'm reticent to use echo chamber on this point because what I'm thinking is that we're all seeing some signals and signs that we're discussing it. And we're trying to understand what it means. And let me tell you this. Yeah. So I went to Austin a couple of weeks ago. To meet up with a few different content creators influencers from different niches. To talk about state of creating content in this environment, what we're going to do about it. They had some special forces people there. And the special forces guys got up and talked to us. And they said, look, our whole career has been being deployed to other countries and destabilizing countries. That's what we do. And we're telling you right now that the exact same playbook that we use to overthrow countries is the exact 100% same playbook that's happening in the United States right now. And we can tell you where this goes because this is what we do. And I left that meeting, and I went bought a ranch. And I'm a pretty level headed guy. So the exact same playbook is this internal playbook. Is it being destabilized internally? Or is this external forces? Internally, internally, you know? It's a color revolutions, right? So if you look at a color what a color revolution is, I mean, the key aspects would be one. Create internal protests and things like that. And then two, the other big piece of the color revolution is to create doubt about the election. Every country that's been had that. That's what they do. They want to create something that makes the election look illegitimate. Because they want you to doubt that. So those are the two big pillars of that. But who wants this? Well, I mean, that's not in my research. That's a whole nother conversation..
Breitbart's Political Editor Emma Jo Morris on Joe Biden's Knowledge of Hunter's Business Dealings
"I don't know what he was doing. I know he was on the board. I found out he was on the board after he was on the board. And that was it. And there's a lot of time. Isn't this something you want to get to the bottom of? No, because I trust my son. But that doesn't pass the smell test. It's like, when you're a vice president, isn't there a higher standard? Don't you need to know what's happening with your family. Don't need to put down some guardrails. Unless there was something that was there was something on his face that was wrong. There's nothing else face that was wrong. So look, if you want to talk about problems, let's talk about Trump's family. I mean, come on. This is amazing. Nothing on its face was wrong. Let's not talk about me. Let's talk about the Trump family because yeah, reasons. That is the sad pathetic old man who bear Bailey bears the title president of the United States, talking about whether he knew anything about his son's business relations. No, I didn't. But just stop asking me questions. Let's get to the truth about the actual knowledge that he had of Hunter Biden's corruption in so many different ways. With somebody who, well, broke the laptop from hell story. We are delighted to have her in studio. She is an awful terrible. Maybe because she spent far too much time in Canada. She's Emma Joe Morris. She is the political editor for one of the most powerful organizations in the world that's on the right side. It's called breitbart dot com and she is in studio welcome Emma. Thank you so much. Thank you for having me. So first things first, I'm going to ask you about your background. How you get to bright about where you were before that. But just to reaction to that random act of journalism from axios where we're here to see how old guy get a little bit touchy at the end, but first say, no, nothing to see here. Yeah, I mean, it's pretty unbelievable, especially after all of the reporting from the New York Post. I mean, the first story, the first story was addressing that claim, specifically, which was that he didn't know. So he was kind of skirting by saying my son does what my son does and I don't have anything to do with it and nobody had anything to say actually you do until the post reporting, which was the first story. Vladimir from burisma says, thank you for the opportunity to meet your father. And that was an email that we have the actual words of the originator who it's going to thanking Hunter Biden for having me meet what your daddy. Yeah. And then obviously, you know, a couple with that story of the same day. We had the story of The White House leaking conference calls to charisma. So obviously he was aware, obviously, they were helping each other. And the way that they were kind of making this whole thing look okay if you don't have the emails in public view was they weren't being paid while Joe Biden was in office. So that was kind of the plausible deniability way that they
Pearl Harbor: The Day of Infamy
"Well, the summer 7th of course was Pearl Harbor, 1941. A day which will live in infamy. The man overseeing the base operations in Hawaii if I remember correctly his name is admiral husband. Husband Kimmel, my memory serves me right. Now it's this great metaphor, which is and it's actually tragic. He was a great guy. He just decided to go golfing on the wrong day. He went golfing on a beautiful Hawaiian morning and next thing you know the pre emptive strike against the United States occurred, which basically sunk our entire Pacific fleet. Thousands of Americans died. And left us so geo politically and strategically vulnerable. In the hours and days that followed, there was fear that the Japanese would attack California next that amphibious ground amphibious invasion of the western part of the United States was imminent. America's reaction to Pearl Harbor showed us the type of country we were. We didn't tolerate it. Even FDR a left wing Democrat rallied the forces domestically and said, we are now going to go to war and we are going to win. Franklin Delano Roosevelt and cut 28. So today that will live in infamy. Play cut 28. Yesterday, the summer 7, 19, 41. A date which will live in infamy. The United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked. By naval air forces of the empire of France, as the moderate chief of the army and baby, I have directed an all measures be taken for the battle. Remember the character of the unsolved against us. I asked congressman clown a state of war between the United States and the Japanese empire. The speech is really good. And it said a lot about who we were as a nation, what we were willing to do to defend the homeland.
Remembering FDR's 'Day of Infamy' Speech 80 Years After the Attack on Pearl Harbor
"But December 7th, after Pearl Harbor, the next day, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was in a armored limousine that was confiscated from the crime boss Al Capone. That was what he traveled in and they took him to Congress and he delivered an address. That address ought to be on the hearts and minds of every American today, and thanks to, well, audio tape, it is. Here's Franklin Delano Roosevelt, addressing Congress, the day after Pearl Harbor, this is from December 8th, 1941. Yesterday, December 7th, 1941, a date which will live in infamy. The United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked. By naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan. The United States was at peace with that nation and at the solicitation of Japan was still in conversation with its government and its emperor looking towards the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe damage. To American naval and military forces, I regret to tell you that very many American lives have been lost. In addition American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu. As commander in chief of the army and navy, I have directed that all measures be taken for our defense, but always will our full nation. Remember the character of the onslaught against us. No matter how long it may take us, to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory. Thunderous ovation for Franklin Delano Roosevelt and those powerful words. I was ready to commentary by David hook stead over the daily caller who writes Japan gave us one hell of a black guy on that horrific morning, but America always gets up for a fight. Pearl Harbor was no different. As soon as we got up and dusted ourselves off, we whooped the living hell out of the Japanese empire all over the Pacific.
Sec. Austin Says , They Will Not Publishe Red Lines
"I listened with great interest to Brett bear's interview of Lloyd Austin at the Reagan forum on Saturday. Brett asked the Secretary of Defense, China's doing stuff in space attacking our satellites. We have a red line in space and the Secretary of Defense responded dust, cut 13. Always found that it's never a good idea to publish red lines. Stop right there. I would say that what's that mean to you? First of all, I think the word publish is important. It doesn't mean the same as set. It means the difference between making a threat privately versus making your threat publicly. So look, I can't say what the administration has done privately that I don't know about. But I think the biggest factor in all this red line stuff is whether the target of the red line believes the United States will actually follow up will actually do it. And I'm not sure that either China or Russia should believe that Joe Biden will actually do what he says. I mean, if you make a threat to somebody, you have to be prepared to follow up on it. Now, with Trump, when Donald Trump did something like killing Soleimani, the Iranian leader. I mean, I think everybody in the world went. Wow. He'll do something. And that, that increases the power of a threat, exponentially. If you've done something. So I don't think Biden has that right now.
Rep. Michael Waltz: Dictators Love the Olympics
"Dictators love the Olympics We all know what Hitler did after 1936 but fewer people realized that the last time the Ukraine was invaded Putin invaded the Ukraine just a few months after the 2014 Olympics in Sochi because they love it because it is a propaganda platform and everybody attending the entire world is turning a blind eye to their abuses to the authoritarianism It emboldens them And I do fear for Taiwan in the wake of the Beijing Olympics which is which is coming in February but just one other point mark The IOC the International Olympic Committee says well we don't do politics And you hear so many people left and right both parties saying well what are about the athletes and what have you Let me ask you this If the United States government had a million Muslims in concentration camps do you think those athletes would be demanding to compete Heck no They would be out protesting So why is it different than if China is doing And the other piece is the IOC had no problem getting into politics throughout the 60 70s and 80s when they boycotted South Africa over apartheid not only did they not allow an Olympics in South Africa they banned the South African Olympic team from participating anywhere for 30 years but I guess it's okay when it comes to apartheid in South Africa but for them to get involved there But they're going to turn a blind eye when it comes to these gross atrocities that are happening all over the world including inside China So and I think the answer is as you and I well know it's all about the money
Rep. Michael Waltz: Our Money Is Funding the Threat of Communist China
"America needs a wake-up call An American people need to wake up to the fact and just a couple of data points The Chinese navy is now larger than the United States Navy More ships and newer ships They are launching more into space than the rest of the world combined including the United States They're on track to have a separate space station and a manned station on the moon Within the next decade that will all be militarized and prepared to attack the United States And just don't take it from us mark or even from me listen to president Z speeches where he has openly talking about replacing the United States as a global leader replacing capitalism and democracy with their form of socialism and communism as a superior system And they just launched a hypersonic weapon that is a first strike nuclear weapon that we can't defend against but the thing that has me so damn mad is they're doing it with our money It's our money that is funding their military build up their debt diplomacy their belt and road initiative or they're taking up power grids and ports and airports all over the world And between Wall Street between Hollywood between the sports industry our trade deficit which president Trump knew and got on top of it is historians are going to look back and say the American people and the American tax dollars funded their greatest adversaries So my call to action to so many is if you see made in China put it down I've reached out to my financial adviser and told them to divest I get us out of investing into the Chinese economy But we have a long way to

"I mean this is getting way too obvious the pattern from the 1930s into World War II is becoming way too obvious The industrialized west is not nearly as strong as it used to be The people are much weaker They're much weaker I talked the other day about the psychology of the United States of the people of the United States As more and more of our greatest generation passes on and more and more of their children pass on and we embrace more and more of the American Marxist movement more and more of beating ourselves over the head Over what took place a 150 years ago more and more of denying the greatness of this country We have a huge problem What if we do institute a draft Do you think the people who are now looting these stores You think the people who are were involved in these gangs you think the people who are pushing drugs you think people who've had it easy We're being subsidized not the work do you think that they're going to even honor the draft
Mark Levin: Israel Needs to Attack First When It Comes to Iran
"One of the reasons the Israelis won one of many The 1967 war because they went on attack Nasser was working with the other countries To economically choke off Israel they were preparing a military attack and Israel attacked first An Israel needs to attack first when it comes to Iran They can't wait for them to have a nuclear weapon So this administration is forcing Israel to decide between its own survival and the survival of its relationship with the current U.S. government Because that's the choice the Israelis have to make now Are they going to defend themselves against what is I don't like this word existential because 98% of Democrats don't know what it means Survival Whether it's going to survive because Iran has said it wants to destroy Israel And with nuclear weapons it can do that Or or well its relationships with the United States government survive And it's going to have to choose the former but that is the position that the Biden administration the Biden Secretary of State the Biden national security adviser have placed the State of
Congress Poised to Change Tax Laws
"Charlie, you and I were emailing and the house and the senator about to change the tax laws of the United States. I've been telling people all week long as soon as that happens, they should take a number of years of their past returns, call you up and find out whether or not the right kind of client high income client. And that you've got to look at that. Am I right? They're about to change the tax laws. They're about to change a tax loss of the tax laws have wavered back and forth between various proposals, there was the wealth tax. There was the family plan and now there's build back in America. And we've been fortunate that we've had two reasonable democratic senators that have essentially allowed us to Dodge a major tax bill and I believe they've not been able to enact much of the legislation that would have affected many of our listeners, but nonetheless the Biden administration wants to substantially increase marginal rates to build back America plan has many changes in it and the reality is. I formed my CPA firm two decades ago to help clients recover dollars at the unnecessarily payment form of state and federal income taxes in most CPAs are simply historians and we do a very good job of helping clients mitigate that cost. And doing simply what other CPA don't.

Supreme Court Seems Ready to Launch Social and Political Earthquakes
"Headlines on the row case yesterday. It's actually the dobbed case about row. From The Wall Street Journal, Supreme Court majority shows openness to Mississippi's precedent breaking abortion law. From The New York Times, Supreme Court appears open to upholding Mississippi abortion restriction from The Washington Post. Supreme Court seems inclined to uphold Mississippi abortion law that would undermine roe V wade. And from The Wall Street Journal editorial page, an abortions crossroad at the Supreme Court, this part of their editorial this morning. These columns have long supported the policy of legal abortion before viability albeit uneasily. As technology has revealed the development of the fetus. I don't agree with that, but they are libertarian leaning at The Wall Street Journal. I'm Catholic. I think it's wrong. I believe if you're pregnant, you have to have the baby and given the rise of safe haven laws across the United States. If you don't want the baby, go give the baby away. And it will be well taken care of my loving parents. The burden of pregnancy is simply not enough to justify ending that life. It is very inconvenient. It's very hard. It may lead to shame and cost and some sorrow and some risk to the mother. I know all that. But that life is life. And if you get to a doctor, the doctor will take care of you for free if necessary. Give you a prenatal care. And when the baby is born, you can give that baby away. There's no downside. None whatsoever. Safe haven laws. They came up a lot in the Supreme Court argument yesterday because they matter. The burden that used to be lifelong is no longer life long. The safe haven laws are in every state now. You can give away that baby. And it's up to the church, by the way, especially the Catholic Church in any church that has been pro life all these 50 plus years. It's up to us to step up and add even more resources and make them even more available to women having a crisis pregnancy. One they didn't plan on, one that they fear, one that may lead to abuse. And it's important for us to be there for them in a way that we haven't ever been before and perhaps it will unleash a flood of taking care of children in need and finding new adoption of possibilities and finding new parents and taking care of those moms. Crisis pregnancy centers, thank you all these years for waiting. Not over yet. But I think the day is coming when people are going to rush to you to help because they know for sure. It's the only alternative for moms and crisis.
First US Case of Omicron Variant Detected in California
"Found in the United States. This is the variant of the coronavirus about which we are so concerned and rightly so. Although in South Africa, the first cases have only had mild symptoms, we don't know, and the head of Moderna, one of the vaccine makers believes this will be materially different in its effectiveness, this variant effectively evading the immunity we've all acquired either by previous cases of COVID or via vaccine. Still remains the most important thing you can do to get vaccinated and to get a booster that remains true because the delta is everywhere. It's the variant that's killing about a thousand people a day. Maybe down around 900 a day, people. Now, it's all Delta variant killing those people who die. And those who are vaccinated are protected against the delta variant, if they, especially if they have the booster, the booster adds remarkably to your ability to ward off that dire disease. Now, it may not kill you, but you really don't want to have that disease. Go and get vaccinated so you can enjoy as much as Christmas as possible. But on the credits here, it's in the United States. It's only going to be a matter of time, exponential growth is exponential growth, and we will see it spread across the United States. Stacey Abrams announced she's

"Question number thirty eight. What is the highest court in. The united states and the answer is the supreme court. Here's a quick civics lesson to help you remember the answer to question. Thirty eight the. Us supreme court has complete authority over all federal courts. It's rulings have a significant effect. A supreme court ruling can affect the outcome of many cases in the lower courts. The supreme court's interpretations of federal laws and of the constitution our final. The supreme court is limited in its power over the states. It cannot make decisions about state law or state constitutions. The court can decide that a state law or action conflicts with federal law or with the us constitution. If this happens the state law becomes invalid. The supreme court case ruling marbury versus madison established this power known as a judicial review. The supreme court also rules on cases about significant social and public policy issues that affect all americans.

She found him in an alley with a catastrophic upper respiratory infection. Both eyes glued shut lost over half his body weight and when she got him to a apparently a world-class emergency feline rescue center hospital. The vet told her he was three hours from death.

"united states." Discussed on Gaslit Nation with Andrea Chalupa and Sarah Kendzior
"Emissions reductions on climate change to oil refinery. It's in a highway bill. Here's the crucial guys. Well senator capito who's the ranking member environment. Public works joe. Manchin talked to his office every week. He is the king maker on this because he's a democrat from west virginia which is very conservative state in. He's not shy about sort of stake in his claim early. Completely change in bank so on the democrat side. We'd look for the moderates on these issues. So it's the mansions cinemas the testers. Exxon is even trying to get through to president biden through his friend. Senator chris coons damning as more a bit willing to the full thing on the show notes for episode which you can find our patriots page it just astounding to me that our leaders plan to do nothing about climate change. The colleagues of mansion cinema mark. Kelly chris coons should be protesting them in their office because their sentencing us to die their sentencing more species to extinction. This is blood on their hands. All for exxon. This is not a new problem. Certainly by any means the longtime former. Ceo of exxon rex. Tillerson was of course trump's secretary of state which was shocking which was absolutely not normal as ceo of exxon tillerson pushed through iraqi oil deal. That threatened american foreign policy at the time. That was just the tip of the iceberg for exxon from the washington. Post the world's largest oil firm. Exxon has long exercised formidable clout in countries where it does business. The company has not shied away from controversy inking deals with autocratic governments and speaking out against sanctions such as those united states has imposed on russia. That hurt its bottom line and quote. We certainly saw that with putin giving tillerson an order of friendship medal. So who was it that pushed for tillerson to become trump's secretary of state former secretary of state condoleeza rice and former secretary of defense robert gates tillerson was their longtime client paying rice and gates for consulting services as the saying goes money. Money money at the expense of human lives at the expense of a livable planet at the expense of our children's future. Republicans more than the kremlin turned america into a struggling democracy like ukraine stressed by a losing war against corruption. Republicans held the door. Open for the kremlin and the kremlin walked right in. They put their free market ideology above national sovereignty literally selling out our country and its best interest for profit condoleeza rice promoted and endorsed the exxon ceo to be secretary of state while promoting her own book on democracy. So what kind of future do we have if we continue down this path of letting exxon by public servants by endorsements from former major government officials putin's russia paints it out clearly according to propublica from a piece last year russia welcomes the warmer planet because the melting ice will make room for more farmland in russia and open the arctic up for ships and drilling russia's literally already planning to benefit from a warming planet. Their plan is to become an agricultural powerhouse. with all this new thaad farmland. Okay so if you're wondering how putin and mansion and these exxon executives can stand to be on the side of leading our world literally burn. It's because they imagine a future where their precious sacred free market ideology will help them. Continue to thrive. This is known as disaster. Capitalism so of russia becomes an agricultural powerhouse. What will happen to current agricultural powerhouse california. It may likely be on fire so the tens of millions of americans who currently vote for exxon by boating republican and promoter. Democrats imagine cinema..

"He was in the presidency. This excuse you know that. The chief executive is by definition above the law that he can't be indicted you know using the o. Elsie memo getting his lackeys. Everybody from muller to bar to various other governmental officials to say yes. Yes we can't prosecute them and now they're going back to a defense that relies on utterly outdated norms of okay. He's not the president anymore. He's a private citizen and we still can't prosecute him in. We're in fact going to defend him in personal lawsuits like say for rape. That is the merrick garland doj position on trump. The cumulative effect of that is as andrea just said confirmation that we're living in a mafia state But what's worse you know. We're living in a mafia state where people Who either were elected themselves or were appointed to be in positions of power by those who voted for like. We voted for joe biden. Joe biden appointed. Merrick garland merrick. Garland is defending. Donald trump. know it's voluntary submission. It's holding up this deeply. Rotted and corrupt institution. And that's why. Just everything about the allen weasel berg case like i don't know i read the coverage that i'm just rolling my eyes. Because of the declining standards of expectations which people create in order to fulfil their own fantasies of what is going on in our criminal justice system as it has to do with white collar crime and with organized crime and with this nexus of it in our government that revolves around the trump family. The weasel berg indictment reminded me a great deal. Honestly of the manafort indictment so it's appropriate You know you brought that up black ledgers matter. Whatever but anyway the thing that reminded me of it most was that the indictment covers the years. Two thousand five to twenty seventeen. Which again just like manafort. This is scratching the surface of decades and decades of organized crime and criminal infiltrations and front organisations and people like weasel burger to sort of sit in the background. And you know keep the records. People like manafort that function as dark arts operatives and then there's the front man and his show man in the spotlight and that's trump and then of course the scope of the indictment is also quite limited You know it's about you know off. The books taxes a refusal to pay the full amount of taxes. I think it is unlikely. He's going to face prosecution. I kind of wonder about the photos of him in which he is hands are behind his back as if he's having a perp walk but you can see that he's not hancuffed that there's just kind of he's he's literally holding his own hangups in his hands which to me is just this incredible symbolism of what the trump crime coal is. It's like they hold the handcuffs of justice. They hold the power of the law in their own hands to bend it and manipulate it towards their own. Corrupt nefarious aims and as the decades went on this became more and and more ingrained into the broader american politics like it started smaller in new york city. But you know. Trump's spread out throughout the eighties. He came out. You know to the area of the country where i live You know places in the midwest like you had partners like carl. Icahn bankrupting cities in indiana. You know buying out. Twa here in saint louis. All these dirty deals were happening. It's part of the broader wall street. Takeover of the american economy and of small businesses and of the infiltration or collaboration really of all street and organized crime and the trump organization is just the prime example of that and the fact that it took this long that it is now twenty. Twenty one and weasel burgas been working for trump since the seventies and trump has been committing crimes seventies again. This reminds me of manafort who had begun his crime spree. You know at least in the early eighties. The same is true cursive roger stone and others who trump went onto pardon But yeah to your point that the litmus test of whether we live in an entrenched mafia state is whether ivanka and jared kushner are indicted that still stands. You know and i'm honestly more worried about kushner. Because i feel like with ivanka. There's still this perception of. Oh you know. The president's daughter the president's daughter who worked on the corona virus task force team that led to the deaths of half a million americans the president's daughter who helped create and cover up at points the existence of migrant torture and abuse camps aimed at children the president's daughter who backed violent white supremacists on it. I mean she was an employee of the white house. She a key adviser of the president. She should not be treated with kid gloves. Ivanka trump represented america on the global stage. Yeah a sitting next to merckel a light eaters. Yes she was it was ivanka. Jared and donald trump. They were together. The unholy trinity. The defacto pressure united states those three yep and that was the heart of the trump campaign. it was ivanka. and jared. who said yala's have paul manafort be the campaign run the campaign. Yeah and the difference though is that with with trump even though it is not a legitimate excuse you hear the excuse of the american people elected him. He was the president. He held the office. Ivanka were inserted into that office illegally. It broke nepotism laws. It broke security clearance laws like they could have removed. Jared kushner and ivanka both for lying on their security clearance forms. Jared kushner is the record breaker like literally in american history for lying on that clearance form. All they had to do to get rid of it was was get them on that and then you could have pulled him out. And what kind of country would we have had. What kind of foreign affairs situation would we have now in the middle east. What kind of reaction to the corona virus would we have had who would have been appointed to various positions. I mean you can really trace so many of the most malicious and anti-american corrupt actions of that administration to jared kushner and believe me. There's a lot of competition here. Like there steve bannon. There's michael flynn there. There's bill bar. There are a lot of some of the worst americans of my lifetime. We're all working in that white house simultaneously. Kushner still wins and he is treated as immune. He is currently working in fact with the democratic party. He is partnering with haim sabban. Who is one of the leading. Democratic donors and haim subodh of course. We've referenced him because pelosi back in late twenty eighteen had this very cavalier. Public conversation with haim sabban bond where she said if our capital crumbles to the ground our foremost priority is going to be israel. And you know that that's a slight paraphrase. We'll post the video on our show notes. We've played this clip on the show. Before for those who don't think it's real. Because of course then the capital crumble and her priority was indeed israel in haim sedan was an enthusiastic proponent of that way of thinking about america and what's important and who to protect me i found it frightening and baffling at the time because to me. The capital crumbling is terrifying and horrifying prospect at the time in two thousand eighteen. It brought to mind nine eleven. And so when there's a terrorist attack or any kind of attack in my country like my instinct is to protect people. It's wanna protect all fellow americans. It's hundred protect our national security. Our public safety certainly not to laugh about it from a donor and certainly not the pledge allegiance to a foreign country and here the matters not quite so much that it's israel but that it could have been any foreign country she could have inserted in that sentence and it would have been a horrifying sentence anyway back to kushner. That's what kushner is doing now. He's writing a book. He's working with democratic party. Donors who define themselves as haim sibon does is one issue donors with the issue being israel. I have a feeling he's probably you know working with his old. You know family friend. Benjamin netanyahu because the kushner's the netanyahu's go back multiple generation who yahoo suddenly has a lot of free time on his hands a lot of free time. And so we're in this weird situation. Where yes you know. Israel got rid finally of their worse. Worst kleptocratic mobbed up node in this syndicate. I do not like their new prime minister. Naftali bennett because of his policies policies towards palestinians. But it's sort of like replacing trump with mike pence. You're just getting a different kind of person with a different kind of network. And so yes you know. There were protests against netanyahu for over half a year for very good reason and it is good that he is out but i don't trust that he's gone away the same way..

"I left a trapped right next to the wheel. Well she was sitting under. And i came back in the morning in. Douglas was with me. And i slowly walked up and i see that the trap was untouched. Nothing was Occurred in i lay down dirt on the ground and i peeked my head flashlight. And she was in the same spot bernie yet and if the time i didn't even know who she was i just knew that she badly burn when an animal's that badly injured and this is just some of the things i learned along the way. They you know. Magin your worst pain of your whole life. Are you remotely interested in food right right. No we're talking catastrophic paint and there's no interest in food so you know what's a hail mary to put some food out and just hope they'll come out but she was in there and she wasn't coming out and so i said doug this cat is going to lay in this truck in agony for days. Die if we don't get her out. So i cooked up a plan. I went and got the jack my tire. Jack outta my truck and over a period of an hour and a half. That was a free protracted rescue a partition off the truck with chicken wire. She couldn't escape. And i jacked it up. And i blocked it up. It's called cribbing. That blocked up with cinderblocks. Just happened on this property and got up just high enough or i could reach in and by now she had dropped out of the engine compartment sitting on the ground with third degree burns and all four of her feet covered in costing diesel fuel.

Five and so little backstory. My my good friend. Catherine parsons going back to the tubs. Fire two thousand seventeen. She and i became acquainted from my work. At the tubs fire. And she decided she was going to produce and make a documentary film called. The fire cast of santa rosa. So catherine started on that project in people say. Oh yeah you get this fire and We'll just be in and out in a month or two in like no. It doesn't work that way. Efforts go on for a long long time like a year two years three years. I mean it just goes on and on doesn't end doesn't end so catherine came down from. She's from canada. Toronto came down hard. Some simple talk offers and shot footage and all that was sort of in post production from the fire cast of santa rosa and then november ninth two thousand and eighteen. The campfire broke out and that changed everything so her project then became a completely different animal for the film which was renamed the fire cats so so catherine already friends by then. He spent a lot of time in person visiting and so she hired a a cinematographer a well known drones. Cinematographer named douglas thron. And when a campfire broke out so the day that fire broke out. I was working my second job where i teach at a police academy. I'm a firearms. Instructor is a part time job. And that morning i remember shooting on the to arrange in the morning and around nine thirty in the morning we took a break in the wind was swirling. It was just kind of weird weather like what we all describe as earthquake weather right right. 'cause i grew i grew up in southern california child. Okay i know that whether it was just had a weird vibe myself and might fifteen recruits. Were sitting outside just taking a break in a wind swirling and i looked to the east mountain and napa county called mount saint i saw little darks smudge over the backside of it looked at it and i looked down. I said that looks like smoke. And it looked at it. And i said no that smoke dish those clauses at that smoke but judging by the wind at sea level where i was at which is basically sea level looking to the east and i knew that smoke was coming from a long ways away in the mountains. We'd had those offshore winds goes northeast. Winds and i looked data my sought growing and i look at him. I said you're looking at the beginnings of a monster. That's the exact phrase. I used and they were like y'all. You're smoking your socks. So i got on my iphone. And i punched in fire in california and i saw the campfire in paradise unfolding on media and i immediately contacted catherine the call katherine paradise on. She should oh. My god. And i said i'm going so she hired douglas. The cinematographer joined me. I think on day six. I'd already been inside working. I was able to get into this terrible nightmare. Were authorities were not letting trained rescuers in this was a monumental amount of casualties felines alone was in the thousands and they were not letting anybody in but this one particular organization which i will not name that ended up turning into a complete nightmare and i was getting with my credentials and so i was able to for the first few days. Get in a couple of convoys actually ran into a couple of my friends over there who are. hp offers that. I teach at the academy with and and i got two convoys. We rescued a lot of cats..

"So in the beginning of every fire I have worked on and to date. I've worked six major western. Us wildfires cal northern california oregon so for example. The campfire which the campfire was in paradise was the mother of all fires. Took out that town. Fifteen thousand five hundred homes and an entire city wiped right off the map. Right of human souls lost in thousands and thousands of this place in las cats burned injured. Show i arrived at the campfire on day. Five and was able to gain entry due to my law enforcement. Profession and i got in there as social media was pulling up the lost and found pages on facebook 'cause by then people can already knew what i did and i had you know people that were reporting their loss kastner addresses and show don day one and two. I'd already had a list of addresses but at that point it was about triage. It was about getting there and start looking for burned up cats right. And that's what i did for the first couple of nights and then i had. We started to get more intel more addresses like his arcadia. Get pictures and i just would take. You know hundreds of pages of notes this address this cat. And then i would start making my rounds working at night and cruising around with the thermal scope at my pickup truck with all my gear. And you're traversing all across the city. And anytime i saw a cat anywhere. I would try and get as close to it as i could out food and water and then make make a notation back out and go looking for cast. Were obviously burned injured in trying to get them and then get to the other. The the known cat addresses and so they develop took the and the people were mapping into research so many people involved behind the scenes. It's just crazy how some we'd learned so much during the campfire because it was just a gigantic followed you on that on social media. Yeah that was That was a life changing experience. It's an emotional thing for you. I can hear it in. Oh yeah what are these cats like when you finally do trap them because you know they've been domestic cats they've been involved in a family then they go through something. None of us should ever go through. So they're totally traumatized. they've been trapped are they. I i know every cat has different personality wise and experience wise but are they friendly at all when you get a hold of them or are they just crazy. I'm over very you know it just depended but very often there were very vocal. I mean some catches screaming screaming in the traps just scared to.

Fire burn areas after the fires are out because when a fire comes through you can probably grab your dog but good luck getting your cats exactly yup precisely and you actually find them. How did you learn all these techniques that you use. Well tammy was an interesting genesis to my entry into the world of distress displaced feline. Search and rescue so in October eighth of two thousand seventeen. We had the biggest and most destructive wildfires in california history at the time was the tubs fire mma county and two thousand seventeen which was right here in in my community. The night that fire broke out. I was actually a patient enlarge hospital in santa rosa where had been admitted due to complications from brain surgery.

I did everything wrong in a few things right and eventually i hired a woman who's considered one of the best lost cat fighters in the country if not the world and through that ordeal and it was horrible. My felines my family. They're in my life blood. They mean everything to me.

You a fan of the summer olympics greg. i always. i'm always. I always think they're overrated until they're on and then i watch them all day. That's exactly what i was gonna say.

There's a kinds of stupid. Covert roles is no alcohol allowed in any the venues. The crowds are limited. I forget the number. But they're not gonna bang out the big stadiums they're gonna keep all kinds of covert rules in place for the for the athletes like they can't like go out to restaurants that stay in the village and stuff like that which will take away from the atmosphere. You need that party atmosphere to make. It seem like a big deal. But i always think that to like nothing. There's interests me right now. Not even basketball. Not even you know swimming or track but when it comes down like in talking about some big gold medal race one hundred hundred meter this guy against that meet guy or the gold medal basketball game if there were some team that put the might threaten the us and we'll get to them.

Hammer-thrower stood hands over their heart. Know respectfully looking at the flag respecting their country gwen berry. She gets all the attention. Which i'm guilty. Give her all the attention. I don't even know the other two names. The the names of the other two participants finish third who came out afterwards and said it was a set up. They set her up because they played the at the mall. She was on the metal standard. She hates anthem. She hates the country. It is sickening. The think and i know i should just laugh at her. She's a clown but it's sickening to think she's gonna do it well. She's she's not going to because she's not gonna win but she would like to do it in tokyo. When the whole world is watching she would like to turn her back on the flag. She would like to disrespect the anthem. It i know you know help on. Espn today now. That gwen berries in the news and espn today the whole lineup. We'll be saying. I defend her right to. That's what's great about this country. You get to do that. You get the piss all over the flag and they'll say this is just freedom of speech and action. She's like capper. Nick another guy who hates this country but has plenty of defenders. The thing that i hate. I hate about capital hater. Bug win berry hate about Max kellerman djamil hill and everyone else. Who will praise her. Who will supporter is just such. There's such ingrates such just lack gratitude. I mean this woman. He's thirty one years old. She doesn't have to get a real job. She's gonna throw a frigging big. Whatever it is hunk of metal spin it around like this ball and chain and whippet in a field somewhere because she can do that. Which is a fairly useless skill. We talked about useless skills the other day because hunter biden has skillets. Pretty useless he can. He can balance eminem's on his weiner your did you try that over the weekend craig. I was practicing trying to get in shape for the show. And i just couldn't i can't hang. I told you my problem. I got the peanut eminem. They just kept rolling off. I need to get the new. I need to get the flatter eminem. I don't think. I could probably come close to hundred by these very proud of his achievement of being able to balance. I think the number. I don't even know if he gave the number but he took pictures so someday we'll get to see a photo of a whole much little eminem's lined up on hunters meaner but that's for another day. Hunter will continue to provide material for the rest the rest of my life. I'm sure but This this woman glen berry. She'll have one day. I assume it's just one day. We'll fly to tokyo. Probably a charter jet and again put her up and feed her and then she'll throw the stupid hammer. She'll get interviewed probably more than any other hammer. Throwers everybody viewed. And they'll give her a chance and that's okay. The media will give her a chance to tell the world how much america sucks and how much she hates this country. That is flying her all the way around the world to throw a stupid punk metal. It's just it just. I mean i know she will play herself. She's not very bright. Not pretty thoughtful. It's just george. Floyd and racism this and she cares about black lives just as long in the black lives that are killed by cops doesn't care about black lives that are killed by other people or other black people or violence in her home city of saint. Louis that doesn't matter. It's just about george floyd and for that rea because of george floyd because of derek chauvin. Who's in prison now. For twenty two years because of that she turns her back on the flag in the world gets to watch this and say boy. Hey i wouldn't be surprised if next time putin talks. He'll talk about our athletes Turning their back on the flag and hating on this country. But we have some sound from the lovely gwen berry craig. Wishart do excellence here from gwen. She's just so thoughtful me being able to represent my communities and my people and those who have died at the hands of police brutality those who have died to this system systemic racism after like. That's the important part. Her action only little bit. That is thing wish. He puts lipstick really weird lipstick and then she puts a line from your topline took up or bottom. I don't know if that's you know fashion thing but to those who have died to systemic racism systemic racism. That's what she's going to say. And because of that. And craig and i are looking at a photo over puts her hand on her hip. They give you flowers to by the way something else. I'm sure the taxpayers have to pay flowers for this great. And she just kinda has one arm hanging with the flowers in one hand in hand on the hip and she's like with this disgusted. Look on her face. While the other girls the other women who beat her ass in the hammer throw again on hands over their heart. And these these girls. I think the winner is like dominant. She almost record. She supported gwen just sitting here. She has a right to speak. And all that. And then i guess. I don't blame her. She doesn't wanna fight with this. This this ingrate. She doesn't want to start. Some feud she just wants to throw the stupid hammer and try to get a gold medal and try to win a championship and maybe make a living. I guess you make a living throwing the hammer if you're the best in the world but here's the problem is i wouldn't as a again i wouldn't normally watch wouldn't only care but i want to watch and see her loose because she will lose. Apparently this other women mother big girls around the world to control it. Farther than gwen. Gwen will lose and she will probably blamed systemic racism which he loses some woman from norway or something. She'll blame racism and and we will keep an eye on this creek keeping the still be people today and in all the way up to the olympics supporting her supporting someone who is rep.

You're going to have those who oppose it are standing army is going to come from every single person who has ever gotten a deer hunting license. Eleven point five million hunters in the us. We own the guns we own the guns and we will sit. I'm gonna use a james tube and rick. Warren analogy here. Hunters have been known to sit in a tree. Earn a blind for fifteen hours to make one shot exactly. Do you really think homeboy from the hood with his nine millimeter turn. Sideways has a prayer with eleven point. Five million of us not a chance. And you've got their spokeswoman.

I know that they are well armed. And i know that they still believe because that oath they took eddie like you were talking about. It doesn't end when they get out of the military doesn't end when they sit there and take the uniform off it's in their heart and they uphold that oath all their life. Like i said before rick if you wear a badge or if you're in our military you've taken that oath to uphold the constitution the united states if you fail to do so if you are anti american if you are anti-constitution you need to remove yourself from whatever profession it is that you're in if you took that oath if you're a law enforcement officer i don't care what law enforcement officer you are where your pd state county. Whatever the case might be you need to take yourself out. Take take yourself out of that law enforcement put the badge away because you're not upholding you don't deserve. You do not deserve to wear that badge. If you in the military and join the military to uphold the constitution and to protect the life of the united states american people. You need to remove yourself somehow or go up until your superior that you cannot uphold the constitution. The united states. Because you're an idiot needed to go flood up to him until them right out that you can't do it because that is the whole reason for the united states. That's why we are the united states of america. that's why we are the greatest country in the world. That's why we should defend about our constitution because we are the greatest country and we need to uphold that because with what we have an office right now gentlemen.

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode one point fifteen the Mayflower combat. Picking up from where we last left off two weeks ago, we had left our settlers hanging out as they began their journey across the Atlantic. This week we are going to pick up with our pilgrims as they make their way across the Atlantic to their new homes, we are gonna spend much of this week focusing on what is often seen as one of the first political documents formed in the North American colonies, specifically the Mayflower compact, the Mayflower compact is often portrayed as this early example of the democratic ideals that will come to find the struggles of the future United States today. I'm gonna focus on some of those early politics amongst the pilgrims. We are going to spend some time looking at the myth of the Mayflower compact and how it is portrayed today. We are going to look at the document itself. And what it did in reality. Finally, we're going to turn back to the Mayflower compact and tried to dissect where the legend surrounded it actually comes from. So then without further delay. Let's just dive right back into our story. Every single year thousands of American school children. Learn about the Mayflower typically around thanksgiving time, we'll Jamestown did proceed Plymouth buy some thirty years. It is the Mayflower that is often presented as being that inaugural trip to the new world for journey that is so central to the majority of the United States. We know shockingly little about it. In fact, most everything that we know about the journey itself comes from William Bradford's writing. And even then Bradford himself is surprisingly quiet on the journey. Ran into the conditions onboard. Bradford does make a brief mention of the combined group now aboard the Mayflower before discussing the general health aboard the ship. There is a mention this. He cygnus was a constant problem and Bradford as always takes the time to tell a charming tale of these special work of God's providence. I'm just gonna go ahead and quote Bradford directly here because frankly, he tells the story better than I ever could. And just a note, you might notice that over the next couple episodes. There is going to be a sharp. Crease in me reading quotes. This isn't really something. I plan to do long term. But when it comes to Plymouth, we are lucky enough to have two excellent primary sources we have Bradford's of Plymouth plantation, which is what I'm about to quote from. And we also have Bradford and Edward winslow's writing in more relations. So as I said don't be shocked when you start hearing an increasing number of quotes for me. I don't think this is going to be long term kind of deal. But let's use what we've got. Okay. Returning to William Bradford talking about conditions on the Mayflower. He says it was a proud and very profane. Young man, one of the seamen a lessee able body which made him all the more haunting e would always become acting on the poor people in their cygnus, cursing them daily with grievous exhortations and did not let to tell them that he hoped to help cast half of them overboard before they came to their journeys in and to make Mary with what they have. And if they were jelly reproved, he would curse and swear most. Bitterly. But it please God before they came half seas over to this young man with a grievous disease of which he died in a desperate manner. And so was himself. The first was thrown overboard, thus his curses light on his own head. And it was an astonishment to all his fellows for they noted. It it had to be the just hand of God upon him. So yeah, that's pretty uplifting story, I bring it up for a couple of reasons I it does give some insight into the state of things aboard the Mayflower. It clues us in that. There was some amount of disease on board. And that death was an actual risk. It's also a good insight into the group itself and gives a working idea of the inner thoughts of Bradford all in all gives us at least some picture of life and the tensions aboard the Mayflower beyond. Just some joyous. Talk of the ships leading jerk getting sick dine in being thrown overboard. Braford? Would also write about what you would probably expect. There's a lot of talk about the dangerous crosswinds seasick. Kness and the general misery that existed onboard Bradford routinely writes about how the settlers survived and kept going forward in the name of God. It is interesting to note that for the most part there isn't much talk about widespread, death and disease. So well, we know that at least one guy did succumb to illness. And it is probably not out of the question that the conditions on board were unless insanitary there does not really seem to be a widespread dying be on. However, there really isn't a ten that we know about the journey itself. Bradford spends only two pages reading about the Mayflower. However through him. We do get an idea of those conditions on November sixteen twenty the Mayflower encountered Cape Cod. Cape Cod was not in a no place upon its discovery. John Smith had founded and named Cape James, however, by the time pilgrim, Scott there the Cape Cod. Name was pretty much accepted. Fishermen had named the area for the large number of cod in the valuable fishing waters. Right off the coast, the journey full had taken sixty. Five days and had landed the pilgrims just in time to face a potential New England winter the first problem that the pilgrims had upon arriving is that they were in the wrong place. Now originally they had planned to set up camp closer to the mouth of the Hudson. Hosver they were a ways north of that. In fact, the settlers were moving towards the Hudson because they didn't actually hold a pattern to settle land in Cape Cod. The ship's captain Christopher Jones recognizing. This fact did attempt to make his way south to the mouth of the Hudson where they were supposed to be however would conditions of the passengers now declining dangerous and uncharted shores and uncooperative wind Jones made the call to return and settle Cape Cod to say that these settlers were upset about

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode one point thirteen medical changes. This is our seventh episode dealing with Jamestown. And I don't know about you guys. But I am ready to move on to different frontiers. The good news is that after this week. That is just what we are going to do however before we can leave Jamestown for good. We need to go back and look at the developments in the colony politically as the colony begins to rapidly grow. The political situation begins to change we see the first forms of government. Come to the colony dri. This period, we are going to discuss the reasons for this. And what it meant for Virginia's a whole following the massacre of sixteen twenty two future. The Virginia company would quickly be drawn into question and by sixteen twenty four the company would meet its ultimate int-. We are going to discuss the change from the Virginia company to the crown Connie with that means for the future of the colony and the future of English colonization. By the end of today, we will be in a position to leave Jamestown behind no longer the struggling colony that we have seen through much of these episodes. But rather a self sufficient Connie that would provide the early base of power in the English North American colonies. We have discussed previously that following the starving time. We see a period of near Marshall oughta go ver in Virginia. We talked about this. If you weeks back when we saw that these new laws have been put into place over with time. A somewhat more relaxed attitudes spread throughout the colony following the end of the first Anglo powder war things Virginia had become relatively peaceful and prosperous for the English with the college being on more stable footing, it proved to be much easier to back down from the previously. Strict rules when Samuel Argyle arrived in the colony take his turn as governor in sixteen seventeen he found that the colony head once again become neglected our goal tried to retain control and issued a new set of stricter laws now over the colonists. Quickly showed their dislike for this following a period of drought after his arrival colonists begin launching accusations at Argyll for embezzling from the stores. Not wanting to let things get out of control yet. Again, the English sent Lord Delaware back free second time, Lord, Delaware, despite all of his efforts really never found that North America agreed with him that much this. I'm however instead of remaining sickly his time in the colony Lord, Delaware, which is go ahead and die on the journey over despite these problems, However, James him was continuing to thrive during this time when captain Yardley return for his second stint, his clone you'll governor and he had been the one who had been replaced by our goal in the first place. The Connie was getting ready to enter into a period of massive growth by this point. The view of the clinic had changed Jason was no longer seen as a place that was simply there to split the local resources of Jamestown become an outpost of England located in the foreign land no longer satisfied with economic gain alone. Virginia was a foothold on the new world a springboard for the English into further endeavors and colonization. One of the problems of the Connie, however, is that his become apparent by the middle part of the sixteen teens that despite relative stability within the colony the population had begun to stagnate is sixteen sixteen there were only three hundred twenty four people living in the colony which is actually slightly down from the years before in sixteen eleven part of the problem is that while the colony had become much more stable. That's the -bility came at the expense of harsh rule from Thomas gates. This means that the stability of the colony was coming at the expense of these harsh living conditions. We have talked about the new laws in the colony and that the colony was essentially under martial law, and it's probably not too shocking that this isn't something that anybody was super excited about the colony was also at this time facing a labour crisis the injured servants who had come over back in sixteen o seven. We're now the end of their period denture. Well, not everybody. I as we move past sixteen fourteen more and more people will begin to earn their freedom. This. This poses a serious issue for the Virginia company, therefore as they are going to face crisis and making sure that people remained within the colony and in just head back to England. A secondary problem existed in the system that the English put in place in sixteen twelve to try to drive more people into the colony in the first place. If you recall in sixteen twelve by making minimum investment in the colony you could have one hundred acres of land. The problem though, is that the Virginia company didn't really have the land offer to fix this problem. The Virginia company turned Edwin send us send us had been one of the initial investors in the Virginia company, and though he would never personally come to Virginia. He always strapped to support the colony from the ground back in London. Well, go any was certainly more stable the task fell to set is to take the Connie to its next face to do this send us hope to make the population of Jamestown more self sustaining send us believe that by increasing the number of people in the colony that it would also move the Connie closer to financial security. Well, stability existed profitability was still. A serious issue for the Virginia company tobacco had become their cash crop. But maintaining the colony was still not really a profitable endeavor. Now, send us knew that the Virginia company did not have the financial ability to entice people to come to colony. Instead, what he did was offer those willing to travel to Virginia special administrative and judicial rights, send us was also actively trying to change the balance in the colony today, the colony has been overwhelmingly male under the leadership of sadness, you start to see more women make their way to the colony. Likewise, Santa's also increased the number of artisans coming over to the colony the hope was that by diversifying the colony's population. You're going to be able to draw even more settlers there. The most influential change during this time. However was the introduction of the Virginia head right system knowing that the shareholders in the company needed some kind of benefit as cash dividends weren't really in the cars at the moment sends introduced the concept of the head right in Virginia. The head rate system instead of being a dividend in cash would provide colonists with a dividend of one hundred acres of land for those who had come to the colony since sixteen sixteen at their own expense. A grant would be given a fifty acres plus an additional fifty acres for each person. They pay to come across the Atlantic as an effort to increase the holdings of the Virginia company. The decision was made that the Len given out would be unplugged separated by approximately ten miles now recall from last week. This is going to be a really big deal. When we start talking about the massacre of sixteen twenty two if you'll recall the distance between the plus is going to make the attack by shakin. Oh that much. More devastating with the growing number of land claims. The decision was also made advant the call into four boroughs.

"Hello. And welcome to the political history of the United States episode. One point ten the starving time. Less time. We left off discussing those first several years of the Jamestown colony the first several years were conflated inside a majority of the new settlers die due to the harsh conditions and at the same time the relationship between the settlers and local powered and Indians was tented best and downright hostile at worst. By the new sixty-nine? The Connie was approaching what will become the single worst time in the history of the Jimmy Connie up to that date today. This period has become known as the starving time, and is going to signify the low Mark for the colony John Smith by the same had left the colony and relations with powered into becomes so bad that is John Ratcliffe skinned alive in December of sixty nine combined with the ongoing issues of survey shin disease is going to see the population of the colony plummet the stirring time very nearly marks. The end of the Jamestown colony the colonists. At one point abandoned, the colony and make their way to ships having had enough trying to survive in Virginia. Of course today, we know that they don't end up actually leaving in fact, following the speed the colony will very slowly at times, turn the corner and begin moving towards something that resembles viable settlement for today. We are going to spend our time looking at the starving time. Specifically, I wanna look at three primary aspects. I we're. Going to look at the traditional telling of the story of that winter of sixty-nine sixteen ten what were the causes? How bad did it get and how did it? Resolve second. We are going to discuss the realities of the starving time. I plan on looking at the question of how accurate is that traditional telling? And what problems may exist with it? Finally, we're going to look at the end result. The starving time is going to have a major effect on the colony in a number of ways, and we are going to examine how these changes moving. Forward are going to completely change the direction of the Regina company and the colony as a whole. I want to start this week by looking at the winter of sixty-nine sixteen ten we're going to Japan by looking at that traditional telling before doubling back looking at some of the causes in many ways is difficult to get a great idea of what occurred during that winter the sources during the timer thin, and there is something to be said about a sense of cessation. Listen that's going to creep into the eventual telling of the event on the ground. The best source is going to be the colonies acting President George Percy Percy would write about the surveys in the terrible conditions at Jamestown during that winter. I'm going to read a quote from perceives book a true relation of the proceedings and occurrences of moment, which have happened emerging from the time, sir. Thomas gates was shipwrecked Bermuda anno sixteen o nine until my departure out of the country, which was anno domini sixteen twelve and yeah, that's an awesome book title sound super exciting, quote is as follows now all of us are Jamestown began feeling that sharp prick of hunger, which no. Man, truly describe, but which he have tasted the bitterness. They're up a world of miseries and suit as the sequel will express to you in so much that some to satisfy their hunger. Have rubbed the store for which I have caused them to be executed then having fed upon the horses and other beasts long as they lasted we were glad to make shift with vermin as dogs, cats, and rats, and mice always fish that came to net to satisfy the cruel hunger. As the boot shoes or any other leather some could come by. And those being spent in devoured somewhere force to search the woods feed upon serpents and snakes and to dig the earth for wild and unknown routes where many of our men were cut off and slain by the savages and now famine beginning to ghastly impale in every face that was nothing to be spared to maintain life and to do those things which seem incredible as to dig up dead corpses out of graves into eat them and. Some have looked up the blood which have fallen from their week fellows and amongst the rest. This was the most lamentable that one of our colony murdered his wife rip the child out of her womb and threw it into the river. And after that chop the other pieces salted her for his food. The same not being discovered before he had eaten her thereof for the cruel. Inhumane fact, I judged him to be executed the knowledge of the debate enforce from him by torture having hung by his thumbs with the weight at his feet a quarter of an hour before he would confess the same. George Percy was the best source on the ground at the time. Other information we get from the events come from John Smith's writings and sixteen twenty four. And in a moment, I'm going to share this account with you. But I wanna give a pair of warnings on it. I I Jon Smith left a few months earlier in the fall of sixty nine. So he was back in England in the winter of sixty nine sixteen ten rolled. Round. Likewise. He is writing this account is sixteen twenty four a full fourteen years after the events actually took place. Now, we're gonna talk more in a few minutes about the problems with the sources, including Smith. But it's something that I wanna be front about Smith wrote in the general history of Regina New England in the summer isles that neigh so great was our famine that a savage we Slough Mberi the poor sort took him up again and ate him. And so did divers one another boiled stewed with roots and herbs and amongst the rest to kill his wife powdered her and eat him part of her before it was known for which he was executed as he will deserved now. Whether she was better roasted boiled or carbonaro, I do not know, but of such a dishes, powdered wife, I have never heard of this was that time which still to this day. We call the starving time. It were to vile to say and scarce to be believed what we endured. But the Cajun was our own for want of providence industry and government and not the Baroness and defect of the country. As is generally supposed for till then in three years for the numbers were landed us, we have never from England provision efficient for six months, though, it seemed by the Bill of lading sufficient sent us such a glut is the seat and said goodfellas the Mariners we as little tasted of great proportions cintas as they of our want miseries yet notwithstanding the ever over swayed and ruled the business though, we endured all that is said and chiefly lived on what this good country naturally. Afforded yet. Had we been even paradise itself with these governors. It would not have been much better with us yet. There was amongst us. Who had they been the government as kept Smith appointed? But that they could not maintain. It would surely have. Kept us from those extremes of misery this intend as more would have supplanted us all with death before we go any further. If you're wondering what does just myth mean when he asked was carbonaro that translates roughly into what she barbecued. So yes, that would in fact be just a little bit of cannibalism humor from our good friend John's Smith between the accounts of Smith emptied is possible to get a sense of devastation that the winter of sixty nine sixteen

"Welcome to the political history of the United States at one point seven Jamestown beginnings. Good news guys after spending the first several weeks messing around in the always intrigued world of sixteenth century Europe. It is finally time to get to the real story as much fun as we've had bouncing around through the political economic and religious changes Europe. We are finally ready to begin looking at the first group of English settlers to cross the Atlantic and settle in Jamestown before we get into that. However, I wanna give a rundown of what the foreseeable future the podcast is going to look like the popular story of the United States is that of a ragtag bunch of colonies that join together to fight the mighty British army. However, that is something that doesn't really exist right away. The first colony should be seen as more of a collection of independent knows acting separately from each other. In order to approach this. I plan to work through the colonies one by one looking at the unique factors each specific group making their way to America. I think dressing the major colonies one at a time is going to be the most effective way for me to move through the rest of the season. The general plan is to move through each colony and get it up to read around sixteen fifty before moving onto the next after moving through the colonies, I will have a few episodes to tie everything together and address a few other subjects that I wanna hit that is going to basically take us to the end of the first season. Now with all that said we are going to begin this week with the first of several episodes looking at that first colony founded in sixteen seven Jamestown would become the first permanent English colony in the Americas. For thirteen years Jamestown stood alone as the only English settlement in America before the Puritans. Join them with their settlement in Plymouth. The founding of Jamestown is a story of failure. Misery death starvation or an ultimately after facing cataclysm after cataclysm a moderate amount of success. The story of Jamestown is one that will see the con- you become the largest tobacco export or in Europe. But only after surviving disease and war with the Indians and starving that became so severe that. The people were forced to turn to cannibalism. These are just a few of the things that we are going to explore over the next several episodes and today, we are going to begin the lane the groundwork for all of that. Everybody in the United States is taught that the pilgrims. Spoiler alert, by the way travel across the Atlantic to the Americas to avoid religious persecution in many ways, this is held up as a banner establishing the freedoms that would become synonymous with the future. United states. The decision to go to James is fueled by the single most common denominator in all of colonization the hope of funding riches. To begin this week. I want to look at the reasons why people suddenly found themselves boarding ships in heading across the Atlantic. What were their motivations? What were they looking for by looking at what motivated the first settlers to good Virginia is going to tell us a lot about the colony and its future. And this is going to be something we keep coming back to future episodes as we move through the history of James ten in Virginia as a whole today when people look back on the history of the United States. There seems to be a tendency to focus more on the pilgrims, the founders of Plymouth, then there are the founders of Jamestown. In fact, there seems to be among many, a general belief that the pilgrims came across on the Mayflower were the first to settle the future United States, and yet Lino that not to be true for Gina had been settled more than a decade before and affect by sixteen twenty was well on its way towards stability. The question therefore becomes why is Jamestown often forgotten when we look at the establishment of the English colonies in North America. That is one of the questions we are going to be looking at over the next several weeks as we explore Jamestown. What makes the Jamestown settlers different than the New England settlers? To begin this week. I wanna start to look at the conditions under which Jamestown was founded. And who the settlers were last week we discussed English attempts to colonize North America at the Roanoke Connie, well that colony mysteriously disappeared. Also, marked the end of English colonization efforts up until sixteen o seven or the failure of the Roanoke. Colony may have had some minimal effect on the future colonization of North America. The real issue was going to be ongoing English Spanish war the war between England Spain had been a pretty good job of depleting English treasury. However would James the first now empower he quickly brought an into the war with the Spanish through the treaty of London. This means that the funds needed to launch a colonization effort were at last available following the end of the war. There was also a new reality for the English came two privateer. If you recall from episode one point three privateer in was tantamount to state sponsored piracy this become a big deal in the sixteenth century as Spanish. Out to such a huge lead in establishing thriving and more importantly profitable colonies in the Americas. Less time we talked about the devastating effect that privateer in had on the Spanish the easier solution for European powers that were not the Spanish Portuguese listed, turn towards private teary. Instead of forming your own colonies you'd instead attacked the Spanish ships still their goods and sell them as your own backing Europe, the English had just finished up a war with Spain and knew the continued use of private jeering was likely to lead to another war. So specifically in the treaty of lended, what of the requirements from Spain wasn't agreement that England would back off of their privateer practices, at least to get the Spanish be effective. Inappropriate against the Spanish merchants did not reduce however English interest in the potential profit and the items to be found in the Americas. The logical solution therefore was for the. English to auntie colonization effort of their own. As mentioned above with the war over there was a sensor plus a funds in England. This is not to mention that with the war over. There was now the manpower necessary for colonization efforts to be made the end of the were also means that the English had the ability to branch out keep in mind that one of the consequences of the first Benesch armada was that it prevented the English efforts to resupply. Their colony in Roanoke with the war over. However, this concern has been completely mitigated. Economically desire to colonize. The Americas will grow quickly in the years following the end of the war. Shortly. After the end of the war, you begin to see the first joint stock companies for the specific purpose of colonizing, the Americas for these companies are going to spring up with the stated intent of going to the Americas fighting the abundant natural resources and sending them back to England hopefully for profit. Colonisation was inexpensive undertaking to say, the least, and this is going to help lead to the rise of these joint stock companies, it joint-stock company is simply a type of corporation were several investors come together pool their money in order to fund expedition, this has obvious advantages over a single or otherwise small group of investors. It was really expensive to start a colony, and it's always gonna be a long term game. While obviously everybody hope that the new Connie would be founded by the city of gold and conquer the natives all within a couple of weeks. The investors know that this is not a realistic expectation. And beyond that, it was not a huge secret that establishing colonies was a task that came with considerable risk the English investors at a minimum would have been aware of earlier colonization efforts at Roanoke, and what happened there investors would have likely. Understood the profit was going to be slow in coming and knew they should not expect a quick return with this mind. The emergence of the joint stock company makes sense. A joint-stock company is made up of a large group of investors, which means that the risk is going to be more spread out the advantage for the colony is that by having more investors. There is going to be far greater source of resources available which in turn gives the Connie a better chance serving. For the individual investor. There was some real risk involved colonies had been lost previously. And there was no promise of these colonies would survive. However, the hope was that this could be a long term investment. And that if the Connie disavow live, there would be a significant amount of profit on the other side in sixteen six King James issued a Royal charter for the formation of two joint stock companies. These companies were the north Virginia company of London and these south Virginia company of London. The companies were giving a man to make habitation into that part of America, commonly called Virginia.
