LBJ and the Issue of Fatherless Birth Rates
"Talk about some issues. Just Larry is a font of stats. And he just spewed out these stats on the stage. And when he said, more than 70% of all black children are born to fatherless homes. You go, you know, how much money has government spent on the minority betterment since the great society. What's 19 says? So let's 50 years. Right. And the poverty rates, they're not lower. The poverty rates are the same or higher. But the fatherless birth rates have exploded. So how do we even begin to grasp that nettle if there's an incentive? Well, I think that one of the things you have to look at, the answer to that really for starters goes back to LBJ. I'm going to have these inwards voting Democrat for 200 years I'm going to lock them in. I'm going to, I'm going to buy the vote. Absolutely. And then you go and you look at how they fundamentally broke apart the nuclear family, which you still happening today. Which was in the BLM. Website until they scrubbed it. It's really scrubbed it. But that was, you know, there's nothing new under the sun. You know, these guys are doing the same thing over again. But back then, it was, hey, if you had a certain income level, which husbands or fathers were most of the times the breadwinner, if you had these income level, you didn't qualify for X, Y, and Z and so dad started walking away so that families could be supported on these government programs. That translated and devolved really into fatherless homes and man, you break apart the nuclear family, and we see the negative impacts of that in community still to this day. And so they knew what they were doing. It was systemic and LGBT LBJ told us. Right. He told us, he gave us the answer to the test and years and years and years later exactly his prophecy if you call that his coming true.

Bezos Calls Out Biden President Over Inflation and Corporate Taxes
"You think about Jeff Bezos being much more sort of in step with the liberal left given that he owns and runs up well he owns Washington Post. Anyway, he's out there. He's stepping up his criticism of the Biden administration on Twitter. This is pretty good. He's going to new one out. I'm going to share with you, but what I loved was what he put out on Friday as we went into the weekend. This thing was epic. Epic. On Friday. Jeff Bezos called President Biden over a tweet in which Biden said that taxing wealthy corporations could actually help lower inflation. Okay, that's just wrong, right? It's just wrong because think about it for two seconds. If you tax corporations more, they still need to deliver to their shareholders, therefore they're just going to raise prices even more. So that actually really doesn't make any sense. He said, and I quote, you want to bring down inflation, let's make sure the wealthiest corporations pay their fair share. This was on May 13th. And Bezos then retweeted it with some info of his own urging, well, sort of urging the disinformation board to review that one, right? He said quote, raising corporate taxes is fine to discuss. Taming inflation is critical discuss. Mushing them together is just misdirection. In other words, where's the government disinformation board that ministry of truth as we like to call it? Where are they when you need it? Oh, wait a second. They can't actually help in this case because you see the government itself. Is the source of the misinformation?

The Torture and Imprisonment (and Love) of Richard Wurmbrand
"I'm sitting here in the studio with Todd nettleton. He is with voice of the martyrs. Actually, he's the host of voice of the martyrs radio on a thousand plus stations, you were just mentioning before, I want to get to your book when faith is forbidden. But you were just mentioning that when Richard finally gets out of prison, the communists, I mean, so wicked that he had been tortured, he'd had tuberculosis. So you said when you get out of prison, they told him, you know, your body is so broken that maybe you've got a year left. Yeah. There's so many amazing things about this story. The going rate for a political prisoner at that time was $1500 to the Romanian government. The price for Richard was $10,000. So he was considered a high value target. And like you say, will the doctors examined him? He'd had TB. He'd been tortured again and again and again. They said pastor Rembrandt, you know, you probably only have a year left. God allowed him 30 more years and he traveled the entire world, telling the story of his own torture, his own persecution, but then also, hey, there are still pastors behind the iron curtain. There are still pastors in those prisons. And really, the voice of the martyrs was founded when Christians like you and I, we hear that, and we say, okay, well, how do we help them? That's really how the voice of the martyrs was founded was to be a way to help you. And so let's be clear. There are people all around this world right now, imprisoned, suffering, persecuted, tortured for their faith, killed for their faith, we need to know that. We need to stop pretending like Christianity is my pathetic little church in the suburbs. Folks, we don't deserve to live in a country where we get to drive in our SUV to our church, whatever there are people around the world suffering. That's the
FEE: How Government Created the Baby Formula Shortage
"There's a great site dot com to freedom based site It's a group that's been around since I was a kid It's been around a long long time And of course the propagandists like Buttigieg in the others are out there left and right but as they write here Christina now that's not her All right it cut off on my printer but let's get to the facts Few may realize if a baby formula is one of the most regulated food products in America You know who said that The New York Times Back in March 2021 Christina selenski writing in The New York Times said baby formula is one of the most tightly regulated through pilots in the U.S. With the Food and Drug Administration dictating the nutrients and vitamins and setting strict rules about how formulas produced packaged and labeled Well there's only four companies that do this Well now you know why It's so heavily regulated Nobody can really break into the market Despite these regulations more likely because of them many American parents buy an approved unapproved European formula even though New York Times reporters zelensky notes it's technically against the law There are large Facebook groups devoted to European formulas she writes where parents share spreadsheets and detailed notes on ingredients and how these formulas compare in their U.S. counterparts she notes This was written a year ago Some caregivers report choosing them because European brands offer certain formula options like those made from goat's milk Our mug from Pasteur from pasture raised cows Which are rare nonexistent in an FDA regulated form in the U.S. Other European brands because of the perception that the formulas are of a higher quality
The Preposterous Bipartisan Plan of Sending $40 Billion to Ukraine
"But I want to start with the story that is now kind of developed over the last weekend, which is why our leaders are trying to send another $40 billion to Ukraine. Now, this is something that we deserve answers to for very obvious reasons, not just because we don't know what success looks like in Ukraine. No one has actually told us that. They say, well, you know, it's to help zelensky and his government fight against Russia, okay? Well, where exactly are those $40 billion going to be deployed? And why is that the urgent need or why is that the urgent project of the federal government? Now, this passed through the House of Representatives with near unanimous consent, the Republicans had some opposition, but very little. It is a bipartisan agreement that we should continue to meddle further and deep into the affairs of other countries. So $40 billion, even though Joe Biden only asked for 33 billion dollars, which will further antagonize Russia and get us closer to a war. In fact, steny Hoyer said, we're in a war last week, said it very clearly and plainly that we are in a war. He said, in a time of war, why are we attacking Joe Biden? And so while our western inheritance is alarmingly vanishing in front of us, we have to be lectured by our leaders why we have to go spend and send $40 billion to a far off and distant

Phelim McAleer Describes His Film 'My Son Hunter'
"For those people listening who are not familiar with the film that you and Ann are making, tell us what is this film because you've been on the show, but not everybody listens to the show every day. My son hunter is the film. It's about Hunter Biden's dodgy dealings. I say it's part Austin Powers, parts on the carrier part House of Cards. It's about Hunter Biden's dodgy dealings. It's about Joe Biden's dodgy dealings. It's an absurdist romp through Hunter Biden's drug adult past and possibly present. And it's true. It's true. I mean, the best source of a lot of it is hunker Biden's autobiography, where he talks about, I mean, this is a guy who says, I had to leave the board meeting of burisma every 20 minutes to take a crack hit, you know, to get some crack in my system. This guy was getting paid $83,000 a month by burisma for four years. He was paid millions of dollars. He was part of a $1.2 billion fund. By the Chinese government, he was getting money from the former mayor of Moscow's ex-wife, 3.5 million, he was money was just flowing in from these foreign sources, and he has emails. Joe Biden is called in for 10%. Joe Biden has come in for 50%. These are facts. So anyway, but that's the fact. Not anyway. I want to be very clear. So in case anybody's driving in their half listening, this is true and fail them an Ann a journalist and they're making a film about this. A movie. Whatever the difference is. Filming a movie. Stop it. This is what happens to me like I always put into the room. But my question is, you're making, you're making a movie. Okay, but the point is it's true. And it's about the biggest story there is. We're talking about corruption. In The White House, corruption at the highest level with our foreign enemies. Everyone ought to be clamoring to cover this and as we know, it's crickets. That's how you know we're living in truly mad times.
Jim Jordan and Mike Johnson's Letter to Merrick Garland
"So this is from Jim Jordan and Mike Johnson's letter to Merrick Garland. It says, and one investigation following your directive, the FBI's field office, interviewed a mom for allegedly telling a local school board we are coming for you. The complaint, which came into the FBI through the national threat operations center snitch line that he set up, the Carlin set up, alleged that the mom was a threat because she belonged to a right-wing moms group known as moms for liberty. Moms for liberty. And because she is a gun owner. When the FBI agent interviewed the mob, she told the agent that she was upset about the school board mask mandates and that her statement was a warning that her organization would seek to replace the school board with new members through the electoral process. Bravo, it's exactly what you're supposed to do. I thought this was a democracy, gets everybody's favorite word on the left these days. There's another one. The FBI's field office opened an investigation subsequent to your directive into a dad opposed to mask mandates. The complaint came in through the national threat operations center snitch line that, again, Merrick Garland set up, and alleged that the dad fit the profile of an insurrectionist. Because, quote, he rails against the government, believes all conspiracy theories and has a lot of guns and threatens to use them. When an FBI agent interviewed the complainant, the complainant admitted they had no specific information or observations of any crimes or threats, but they contacted the FBI after learning. The Justice Department had a website to submit tips to the FBI in regards to any concerning behavior directed towards school boards. You see how this works, folks? You give them a snitch line and then every wacko left left wing crazy starts calling in conservatives.
Will Chamberlain on Ronald Reagan's Favorite Magazine 'Human Events'
"Before we talk about big tech, you were the publisher, human events, fabulous, and newspaper. For those who are not familiar with it, because it's like this silent conservative success story, what say a little bit about human events before we move on to big tech. Oh, sure, yeah. It was Ronald Reagan favorite magazine, but it was basically defunct for about 5 years from about 2014 to 2019. At the time I bought it with Raheem kassam and had him as EIC. We split pretty quickly, but I think we brought back a very higher a little bit of a higher aesthetic. A lot of the early human events articles, especially when I was publishing, were really beautiful art from Ian miles Chong, who's actually on Twitter, one of his most people know I'm just from his tweets, but you wouldn't know that he's actually a very talented graphic artist. And so much of the beautiful art that was on the articles was there. And we just had a lot of very good interesting contributions. I was really trying to push at the time, push the right towards this kind of more almost like pragmatic ruthlessness and achieving things. It kind of connects to big tech because when I was on the aggressive action on big tech, bandwagon back in 2018, 2019 when most conservatives, I think we're still a little hesitant about trying to regulate it because they come from this predisposition. Small government, small government type thing. And we were just really trying to push, no, no, no, that's, in this case, that's a self defeating principle.
Did FBI Target Parents Despite Garland's Sworn Testimony?
"Breaking last night from congressman Jim Jordan, who's going to be joining the show next week when Charlie is back. From his much needed vacation, he's going to be detailing what he's uncovered. There is a whistleblower, a smoking gun with new information that shows the FBI used terrorism tools to target concerned parents. This is despite attorney general Merrick Garland's assurances to Congress, under sworn testimony, mind you that the Department of Justice was not using its resources to target concerned parents. And now a whistleblower is confirming that the FBI has labeled dozens of you as with a special counter terrorism label in its investigation. Now, I want to play some sound here to build this out. Now, how did we get here? Let's play cut one 12. This is Jim Jordan on Jesse watters prime time last night, play cut one 12. And again, if you're a mom, you're a dad, you're a gun owner, you're a Republican, and you're standing up for your kids. Oh my goodness, look out because here comes the FBI. And again, in a direct contradiction to what he told us under oath in the committee. And never forget that this Jesse, look, remember how quickly this happened. September 29th, the school board association sends a letter to the Biden White House. 5 days later, October 4th, Merrick Garland issues this memorandum that lays out this snitch line together, go after parents, and then 16 days later, the FBI sends out the email that's establishes this threat tag designation that was put on these parents. All that happened last fall in 22 days. When have you ever seen the federal government move that fast? So they moved that fast because they were going after people. As you just pointed out, just like the Obama White House went after a new Obama IRS went after conservative same dynamic here,
"us government" Discussed on The Breakdown with NLW
"Welcome back to the breakdown with me and LW. It's a daily podcast on macro Bitcoin and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. The breakdown is sponsored by nyg and produced and distributed by coin desk. What's going on guys? It is Sunday October 24th and that means it's time for long reads Sunday. And today we have a fun one for you guys. So our story starts in 2015. Well, really, it starts in the 7 years before 2015 as one of hip hop's most legendary ensembles secretly recorded an album that they called once upon a time in Shaolin. Yes, of course, I'm speaking of the whoo Tang clan. So they had secretly been recording this album for 7 years and in 2015 instead of releasing it as normal, they held an auction. There would be only one copy of this album. And it was going to be auctioned off. Now at the time there were two very strong takes on this. The first held that this was some bullshit elitist art stunt. The second was that it was a perfect skewering of the way that digital and streaming has eroded musical value. For my part, I believe that it could have simply been that cash ruled everything around them. And in either case, if one thing has ever been true, it's that Wu Tang clan ain't nothing to fuck with. Whatever the real story is, baby doctor evil pharma exec Martin Shire won the auction for $2 million and took this incredible piece of culture with him in his much hated hands. Now, for those who aren't familiar with this comic book villain, he was a hedge funder and pharmaceutical exec who acquired a drug called daraprim, which had an expired patent but no generic version. This drug was used as an anti malarial and an antiparasitic drug and was used treating both aids related and non aids related toxoplasmosis. After his firm bought this drug, they jacked the price from 1350 a pill to $750 a pill overnight. It's way beyond the scope to dig into all of the elements of this here. But the key thing again is that it was a bummer that this piece of culture was hanging out with Richie rotten. Anyway, in 2017, Martin was convicted of securities fraud and sentenced to 7 years in jail, where, as part of the conviction, he was ordered to forfeit $7.4 million in assets. When he didn't have the cash, he had to give up everything, including a Picasso and of course, once upon a time in Shaolin, the Wu Tang album. Fast forward to July of this year. News broke that the U.S. Marshals had sold the album, but we didn't know to whom until this past week. Turns out it was pleaser Dow who are pleaser doubt you ask, well, let's read there about page from their website. Please or Dow is a collective of defy leaders early NFT collectors and digital artists who have built a formidable yet benevolent reputation for acquiring culturally significant pieces with a charitable twist. Since the Dow purchased its genesis piece, people pleasers Eunice wat V three NFT, the Dow has evolved and elevated its mission to collect digital art that represents and funds important ideas. Movements and causes that have been memorialized on chain as NFTs. Pleaser Dow has set a precedent for bidding on unique pieces. Many of which have powerful messages that transcend crypto. Dubbed as an art collecting empire, the Dow is experimenting with novel concepts in digital and community art ownership. Its members are exploring ideas such as fractional iconic pieces to be distributed to and owned by the community. However, beyond just shared ownership of these pieces, the collective plans to apply creative innovations within defy to add and disseminate value. In a way, the Dow is a platform for collective experimentation at the nexus of community ownership, defy and digital art. In essence, the Dow's modus operandi is to buy and fund culturally significant pieces and then create something fundamentally additive to the soul of the piece before sharing it back with the community..

"Twenty nine am on july sixteenth. Nineteen forty-five the us army detonated an atomic bomb. The first test in american history in a desert valley in los alamos new mexico at the time the location was kept secret but the huge blast woke members of the hispanic and indigenous communities living next door. This was about a month before the bombings of hiroshima and nagasaki. Henry harare was eleven years old then in a town till larussa just outside of los alamos. He spoke with our race injustice reporter russell control us about what it was like in the moments after the bomb went off at one thing i guess for flows on the slow lane radio. I'm the that dust henry talking about. Didn't just cling to close like. Henry's mom had hung up outside in also settled on people's homes. Not knowing the dust was radioactive. Henry says they wore those clothes for years and other residents took trips to the site and even brought radioactive greenglass back into their houses. Eventually people started getting sick with rare cancers. We've got a while back later. You know and people are sick in one knew while. Henry's now eighty seven. He's had his jaw reconstructed because of mouth cancer. He and other residents believe these illnesses were caused by the bomb. We had no idea no military. Didn't tell us a damn nine. I'm sorry not guan that bam word from the military and it wasn't just this bomb the. Us government has a history of endangering communities of color to produce nuclear weapons during the cold war. the government was mining uranium all across the navajo nation. These are just a few examples of what climate activists and academics call environmental racism like housing and employment discrimination. The terms away to explain that environmental laws aren't enforced equally across racial lines and that some communities especially black latino native american are left to bear the brunt of these hazardous and often deadly effects. Environmental racism can also be about access to clean air. Take the chevron refinery in richmond california for example the surrounding area is made up of primarily black and latino residents where the asthma rate is at twenty five percent. That's almost twice the state average or it can be about clean water like in jackson mississippi or storms and freezing temperatures left many black residents without water for weeks in march the movement to change all of this is known as environmental justice and inputs vulnerable communities at the center of climate policy in solutions. What rommel justice movement attempts to do is to make sure that no community is left behind when it comes to environmental protection environmental enforcement. And it's very clear that everybody is not getting the same level of protection that others who are living in the suburbs who are living in a foreign communities. We say it's not just it's not fair and it's illegal. Dr bullard is known to many as the father of environmental justice. He's a distinguished professor of urban planning and environmental policy at texas southern university in houston and he's a member of president. Joe biden's environmental justice advisory council. Today we're gonna talk about how the federal government is tackling environmental justice under the first black man charged with leading the epa administrator. Michael reagan and what. It will take to make a real change. But i i went to dr bullard to explain how we've come to understand that the environment and racism are linked dr bullard. Thanks for taking the time to speak with us. Thanks for having me. Can we start at the beginning of your career. What was the first instance of you observing environmental racism that led you to dedicating your entire career to addressing this. While that's a one it was way back in nineteen seventy nine and houston texas. I was asked by my wife to collect data for losses that he had filed us. You need someone to put on a map. All the landfills located in houston's generators garbage dumps in that was the first lawsuit being versus southwest waste manager. Cooperation challenge environmental racism in so. I got drafted in. I did the study. And i've been doing studies in writing books over the last forty forty years as a matter of fact forty two years one of your earlier books dumping in dixie race class and environmental quality came out in nineteen ninety and it was one of if not the first taxed to address inequities in the environment and climate. Was there. push back at that time for this framing for you framing it. That way of course was back. You know what. I finished a book. Nineteen eighty nine and it took me a whole year to get it published. Because i got nasty notes from publishers saying oh there's no such thing as environmental racism. The environment is neutral subjective. Everybody's treated the same. And finally i was able to get a publisher out of boulder colorado. I don't know if it's mountain high air these brown. Tofu food marijuana. Whatever they publish mobile and so that was the first book on environmental justice. Dumping in dixie. It was the first full animated textbook. That's how i got into the academy and got in the hands of lots of soaps. You have been doing this as you said for decades. How important was last year. Twenty twenty in americans understanding of how systemic racism does affect people's access to water to their sanitation to environmental justice. The summer twenty twenty was a great awakening. It was a great awakening to the fact that there was so many cascading multiple converging threats on america and particularly black america. When we saw you know what was happening with. George florida and yana taylor and others. That was about black lives matter..

"So in retrospect that was the clear time to do it. They ended up just postponing for seven years the inevitable which was that the taliban were gonna come back into power. So what do you think could happen now that the taliban is in charge the you as is gone what. The taliban launched from the us in order to keep afghanistan quiet. Yeah that's a it's a really fascinating situation. So here's the enemy. We've been fighting for two decades yet. The taliban would like nothing more at this point then to have diplomatic recognition from the united states they had asked by administration to keep the embassy open because they want humanitarian aid and economic aid to keep flowing to the country. Afghanistan is highly the the economy is highly dependent on us aid and aid from other donor countries. And if the us turns off the taps to that the afghan Economy could collapse in the talibans. Very cognizant of this and they want support and help from the us government. There's also interesting cooperation going on counterterrorism. You may recall the cia director. William burns recently flew into kabul and met with the taliban leadership and clearly they were discussing among other things whether the taliban and us intelligence could work together against groups like islamic state in afghanistan You know islamic state's a terrorist group that is hostile toward the taliban. The taliban believe it or not is to moderate and not pure enough and the taliban is is fighting islamic state so this could be a situation where the us and the taliban actually worked together on security issues but if the us is going to recognize the taliban obviously then that's a bitter pill to swallow that saying that this this this movement that has very brutal attitudes toward women and their human rights record is abysmal. We're essentially accepting that at least tacitly if we're going to recognize him but you know this is a difficult decision. The biden administration's going to have to wrestle with. To what degree can we work with the taliban to what degree do we want to work with the taliban but the reality is there in charge and in some ways i think biden hopes to taliban can at least brings some stability to afghanistan. That's been missing for the better part of forty years there. The promised to allow women to go to school to have jobs to drive cars if they do not keep those promises and continued to terrorize. Win is the us going to continue to support them. Well this is. This is the situation right. You know and that's the question. I don't know but i'm not too hopeful that the taliban all of a sudden is is going to adopt progressive ideals and let women keep doing all that. I mean to give you one example. They already announced that their reimposing their ban on music right in afghanistan. So that doesn't give you much sense that they've evolved into the twenty first century. But this is this is the dilemma. The biden administration faces. This is not a movement or a government that shares any american values but from a security standpoint. Do we cooperate with them or not. Do we know how many americans have been left and the state department has said more than about one hundred americans somewhere between one hundred and two hundred now..

"There wasn't open warfare in kabul At the same time you have threats from terrorist groups like the islamic state which was responsible for that awful suicide bombing that killed thirteen service members and more than one hundred afghans outside airport. So look it was. It was a bad chaotic situation But to me is somebody who covered the military. For many years it could have been far worse. It was clear the biden administration hadn't planned well for it. But you know we're really fortunate that the loss of life wasn't greater there could have been a plane shot down. There could have been more bombings. We could have had shootouts with the taliban for days on end so i think in the end the by administration was fortunate but you're right binds going to historically he'll be the one president who said i ended the war unpopular war But he also has to take responsibility for how that how that unfolded so how could hit to have been a better way. Well this is. This is twenty twenty. Hindsight but obama clearly wanted. He promised to end. The war in promised to withdraw. Us troops but if he'd stuck with his original plan to pull out us troops by the end of his second term at that point. The afghan government was stronger in the taliban was weaker. Now maybe in the end the taliban still would have taken over but i think the evacuation could have unfolded in a more orderly fashion. The plan was to hand over responsibility for all security to the afghan army and police during obama's term. And if he truly done that and pulled out. Us troops things would have been a lot smoother. Who knows how long the afghan government would have remained in power but that would have been on them and the us wouldn't have had this direct involvement. So in retrospect that was the clear time to do it. They ended up just postponing for seven years the inevitable which was that the taliban were gonna come back into power. So what do you think could happen now that the taliban is in charge the you as it is gone what the taliban want from the us in order to keep afghanistan quiet. It's a fascinating situation.

"So had we not gone into iraq. You think the outcome in afghanistan might have been different. Yes i do. And there's no guarantee. I've had enormous problems and challenges and needs but if there was ever time when we could have really made a difference in strengthening the afghan institutions giving humanitarian aid and trying to put the country on its feet that time was during bush's first term when instead we spend all our attention and focus on iraq. You know the best example of this of of losing our focus it can be found in a memo that donald rumsfeld wrote just a year into the war in two thousand and two he was recounting in this memo. He had gone to the oval office to meet president bush and he told bush to generals in town this week. General tommy. franks. Who is the commander of forces in the middle east. Who is overseeing. The word plans for iraq and general. Dan mcneill and he asked the president. Can i set up a meeting for you. With general franks in general mcneil and bush said yet tommy. Franks i want to meet with him because of course we want to talk about iraq. But who's general mcneil and rumsfeld said. Well sure he's the commander of the war in afghanistan and bush said. Oh well. I don't need to meet with him so there you have it right. The president is completely focused on iraq doesn't want to spend any time on. Afghanistan doesn't even know who his top general is there and to me that that sort of set it all and twenty years later. Remind us of the cost of this war in terms of money and well the cosby still going up and up about two thousand four hundred. Us military service members have lost their lives in the war Probably more than seventy or eighty thousand were wounded there. Another eleven hundred. Nato allies and troops were killed in afghanistan tens of thousands of afghans civilians tens of thousands of afghan soldiers and police and of course. The taliban has taken heavy losses. So we don't have a precise accounting or numbers of how many afghans have lost their lives. Unfortunately but the number of afghan civilians getting killed kept going up and up each year so even as the us started to withdraw. The number of civilians getting killed was getting worse and worse up until the end We've also spent over a trillion dollars so far but when you include the indirect costs like debt payments and healthcare for veterans. And things like that. The estimates are that the war will cost us about two trillion dollars and in the end. There's very very little do show for it with the taliban now back in charge the taliban stronger now than it was back in two thousand one in their concerns about whether al qaeda or other affiliates could come back to afghanistan. What's so fascinating to me. Is of course. The whereas had seen the history of russia in afghanistan finally giving up because afghanistan was such a complex situation. You think the us did not understand that right front the beginning no they did understand that. From the beginning and we know this they. Just how do i say the lesson was right in front of our faces but and we knew about it but we didn't pay heed for very long. There's a good example of this in april of two thousand and two again just six months into the war. President bush gave his speech at the virginia military institute and he addresses this very topic..

"From the public. You know if they may be had this honest conversation a long time ago. I think the were would have been shortened. We wouldn't have had to be there for twenty years. I will surprise to see name. Michael flan emerge here. Tell me a role. He played sure so today. Most people know. Michael flynn for his politics. He's he's embraced cunanan. And a lot of these conspiracy theories but for most career. He was in the united states army and he became a three star general in charge of military intelligence. He was overseeing military intelligence in afghanistan for the united states and nato during the obama administration and at that time he was very highly respected within the armed forces that he was very. He's spoke very bluntly and he engaged in all this talk that a lot of the other. Us officials did so. I actually that's how this whole project got started in two thousand sixteen. I heard that flynn had given an interview. That was part of the afghanistan papers in which he was very critical about how the war has been fought and in particular how it had been presented to the american people here at that point was just becoming known for his support of donald trump. So he was in the news. I wanted to see what he said. This was part of the lawsuit post filed against the government. we finally obtained. Flynn transcript of what flynn said in contrast with today where he says a lot of crazy things back then. His assessments were really on the mark he kept saying. You know every measurement from the field from headquarters in kabul. Show that we're not winning this war that we're losing all our commanders. It feels like we're losing slowly. So how come we keep telling the american people that were winning so the irony here is. Here's michael flynn who's got a dubious reputation these days but back then he was wearing the few who is actually telling the truth about how things were going. What were the generals themselves saying to each other well again in these interviews. We obtained confidentially. They were telling the government that things were disaster. I was shocked when i read one interview in particular with the general dan mcneill. He was the war commander in afghanistan. Twice underbush two different occasions and he said we didn't have a strategy. We didn't have a campaign plan to go over told to go over there and kill terrorists but there was no there was no plan and i was shocked. I was like what general admits. He doesn't have a strategy right. I mean it's one thing to say. In retrospect the strategy was mistaken or are we made a lot of you know we made errors but he just said we were on autopilot. Fighting this war i thought maybe it was hyperbole on his point but then there was another interview. Transcript with a british general. David richards who oversaw. Us in nato troops in two thousand six in two thousand seven and he said the same thing..

"Self-driving cars why is having a hard time. Well i think a lot of it has to do with the fact that over the last several administrations obama and then trump really kind of took a hands off approach when it came to the development of autonomous vehicles. They were very mindful of this competition. That was going on in china. I think there is a worry that cracking down too hard. On the development of autonomous vehicles making committee rules was going to lead the united states to fall behind. Its competitors mainly china. We're starting to see a shift in that behavior. Though with the new administration with joe biden's administration when it comes to these investigations looking into sort of you know how tesla is developing its technology and we saw a recently a new rule came out from nitsa requiring car companies to report crashes involving either advanced driver. Assistance systems like autopilot or fully autonomous vehicles. Were expecting to get a lot more detailed information a lot. More data involved in these types of crashes and that's really a departure from previous administrations have have approached this technology. You know which is not to say that they're still trying to figure out how to approach the whole thing. A lot of this happens at the state level and you can have sort of a patchwork effect but it's pretty clear that the by the administration is trying to have a more nuanced approach to this technology. Which is still very much under development and is not really ready for prime time so the government has opened this robe and it's huge. It involves hundreds of thousands of tesla's what could happen. What happens from here. A number of different things could happen. They could issue a recall We're talking over. Seven hundred thousand vehicles are involved in this investigation across tesla's entire lineup. So that's model three model s. model x. Men why we've got the cyber truck coming out pretty soon so it remains to be seen you know what sort of tax the regulars will take to that vehicle but right now you know the vast majority of the tesla's around the road today so a recall could really sort of hamper the company's ability to market this product in the future it could affect you know the vehicles that are on the road today could require them to update the software to trade out vehicles for for new vehicles that could really end up costing the company a lot of money or they could actually you know or tesla to overhaul this product completely. This is sort of virgin territory for tesla and for regulators. So it's really kind of uncharted in terms of what actually could end up happening here. But we know how the government responds to recalls in the past. And the onus is really on the automaker to make sure that customers know what type of products they have and whether or not there's been a recall issued for those products and what they're supposed to do after that andrew i have to ask. Have you ever been a tesla autopilot. Engaged i have and You know at the time that i was in the vehicle it was working pretty well. But that's also because i knew sort of the rules and how to keep my eye on the road into to stay attentive while i was driving if i actually owned one of these vehicles and i was using it every day you know i might become complacent just like other people have and start to think that the car is a lot more capable than it actually was so you know i don't i don't really blame the customers that much. I mean it's a product that they use every day. It's your car you know you sort of. There's muscle memory involved and there's a lot of psychological behavior. I play but yeah. I mean you know. Tesla's are are exciting really technologically innovative in sort of in the right setting. They could really work really really well but under the wrong settings such as at night with a fire truck in your path things could go really tragically wrong pretty quickly. If you're.

"By they want to build a more permanent presence on and the moon base on the surface of the moon space station in orbit around the moon. And what we know. Now that we didn't know during apollo is that there is water in the form of ice on the polls of the moon and that's important not just to sustain human life but water hydrogen oxygen can be used as a rocket fuel and propellant to allow us to go further. You think of the moon is like a gas station in space and that allows you to go further while at the same time helping to build the sort of commercial space industry and a lot of people think that a space if we can access it more efficiently and more cheaply than that could actually open up a new economic sphere. Not unlike what we saw with the advent of the internet at this point what are these advancements in space. What value do they have from a geopolitical perspective for our country. That's another great question so just think about the partnerships on the international space station. Where you've got things. Something like nineteen countries working together meant an enormous amount of work to keep astronauts alive in space and on the ground. There are all sorts of enormous geopolitical tensions between the united states and russia for example. But when it comes to space and partnering on the international space station they work in lockstep with each other at the same time. You're seen a growing space race. And there's some debate over this. Between the united states and china. China has shown that they have huge ambitions in space. They landed a spacecraft on the far side of the moon which no one had ever done. It just landed a rover on mars joining the united states to be able to do that. They launched their own space station into low earth orbit and are talking about partnering not only with russia but with other countries as well at a time when the international space station which is an endeavor effort led by the united states is getting older and it's unclear how much longer that will stay up there. China has shown that it has huge space ambitions and nasa administrator bill nelson has talked about one of the reasons why we need to keep exploring is the you know to make sure there's democratic american values that extend into space all right. Kristen my last question for you. You have been closely following this modern space race. What do you think will be the next phase for space exploration and is the us position to be a leader. I think the next chapter. Is you go from mercury gemini. Apollo space shuttle space station to this commercial space era. I'm really interested in human spaceflight. And it's fascinating to me that you've got not just like a jeff bezos on richard branson going up. But that soon you could have a lot more people and if you think about in the history of the world only about five hundred seventy people have ever been to space and within a five year. Say they're able to do it safely. And reliably that number grows to five thousand ten thousand fifteen thousand over the years and you have a new generation of people who have seen the earth from a distance who have seen the thin line of the atmosphere land masses without borders. that could have a profound effect. I mean remember that image taken from the apollo era of the earth pale blue dot hanging in that inky darkness of space that helped touch off the environmental movement in earth day in it's one of the most reproduced photos in the history of photography. So i think that could have a profound societal effect. And we're starting to see this with spacex and a company called axiom space taking more and more people not just unstable orbital space tourism trips but all the way to orbit as well so i think that is something to look for for sure convinced.

It's baseboard america and landing back at spaceport. America you take off at spaceport america and in tokyo technologically. They're not there yet. There's going to be a lot of bureaucratic regulations in terms of managing the airspace. And that's gonna involve different. countries spacex. Wants to do that as well. I mean they say if you're going to go to space why do you have to come down on the same spot. Why not land else. And that's clearly destinations for earth. But if we have commercial space stations in low-earth-orbit to complement or replace the international space station. That's a destination or if now you're thinking out decades hundreds of years and you have destinations around the moon. That could be a place to go as well. Let's pivot to talk a little bit about the politics surrounding us and what the federal government has been doing in the past and is doing now to aid these space efforts so president trump actually appeared to show a big interest in space. When he was in office he put space force in place. Did that interest lead to any substantive advances in american space research so the trump administration standing up the space force and on the civilian side with nasa with they did was create the optimist program and the program is their program to go back to the moon. Originally nasa had been aiming to go back to the moon in about the twenty eight timeframe for the trump administration said no. That's too long time. We will not only plant our flag and leave our footprint we will establish a foundation for an eventual mission to mars and perhaps some day too many worlds beyond this directive.

In politics one administration will come in and say we're going to the moon and then they'll get voted out in the new administration will come in and say no we've been to the moon we're going to mars. And then the next one comes as no going back to the moon and as a result we've got nowhere we haven't been back to the moon. So trump came in a very strongly said we're going to the moon under artists by twenty twenty four and what happened when the biden administration came in even though they laid waste to so many of president trump's programs they embraced artemis through the program. The united states government will work with industry and international partners to send astronauts to the surface of the moon. Another man and a woman to the moon which is very exciting. Because i said we're going to do this. We're gonna take a review. We're going to look at it. Make sure this is viable. But they're holding onto that program in the two thousand twenty four deadline so we have continuity like this for the first time in a long time. And that's giving a lot of people in the space community. A lot of hope i think. Twenty twenty four. Still an unlikely. I don't know that we're going to be able to meet that. There are a lot of challenges yet but at least everybody is aligned to meet that goal. Are there other goals from the biden administration around the space program with fascinating about it is that they are continuing a lot of what happened in previous administrations these public private partnerships to fly commercially. They're embracing that was once not that long ago really controversial and we went from flying cargo and humans to low earth orbit to the international space station and initially the resolve this talk of free nasa to go farther deeper and do things but now under the optimist program for example there are continuing to embrace these public private partnerships to go to the moon for example the lunar lander that would put astronauts on the surface of the moon. That would be a public private. Partnership right now spacex has the contract to develop that spacecraft. Even though at the moment it's touched off a protest and litigation from blue origin a which lost the bid also wants to be able to compete for it so not only do you have is public private partnerships going forward but you've even got immense competition in the industry for it.

Who was the second sitting member of congress to go to space. You had a chance to sit down with nelson. What did he tell you. Where his priorities. For biden's nasa wolf a lot of people look at the nasa administrator. And a oh should be an engineer or scientist or maybe an astronaut and not a politician politics should be left out of it but what they bring to the table as the ability to go back to their former members of congress to try to get money to fund these programs and that's what former senator nelson is trying to do right now. Going back to the moon is not cheap. Had requested three point. Three billion dollars for that lunar lander program only got eight hundred and fifty million dollars for this year and so now he's going back to the hill with these budget requests and try to get more money so they can meet that twenty two thousand four deadline to ask you the most basic question here. Which is there are so many problems in this world so many areas in this country alone. That need lots of congressional funding. Why is going back to the moon a priority. Why is this important. That's a great question. And i think that as journalists is something we need to keep asking ourselves and keep asking the leaders about what is the point of all this and is there a return. I mean we went to the moon in nineteen sixty nine and haven't really been back since nineteen seventy two. Why should we do this. And i think what. Nasa would tell you today. Is that particularly when it comes to the moon. They're not talking about an apollo light program. Where twelve men walked on the moon and.
"us government" Discussed on Can He Do That?
"In two thousand and elon. Musk family spacex. In two thousand and two and richard branson with virgin galactic in two thousand and four so this has been in developed for a number of years. And a lot of these efforts are just now coming to fruition. But this is ben a dream for some time now. Is it coincidence that this all happening at the same time or as this been gradual evolution in the time. Look the same from the start. There has been a gradual abolition. And in a lot of ways it's been led by spacex which leads the as ation of space when you talk about commercial space. You'd think about spacex. They've been out in front. Ilan founded the company in two thousand and two within six years. They had a rocket that was able to go to orbit and they started quickly entering the launch market winning contracts from nasa and then eventually the pentagon and he showed that you could actually do this and have a viable company. This relationship between spacex and nasa has been sufficiently meaningful to where we are now looking at at how we do all of our business models and that includes how we're going to resupply gateway It includes how we're going to get to the surface of the moon this business. Now you're seeing not just these launch providers but a broader space industry beginning to blossom so you mentioned blue origin spacex and virgin galactic do all of these private companies have similar goals as it just space tourism. What are they in this for. In a lot of ways they have different approaches but what they all have in common is wanting to make space more accessible such high bar to be able to get the space. It's technically very challenging. It's risky when there's a reason why governments have had a monopoly on space travel for decades. It's just too difficult. And so what they all want to do is bring down the cost and commercialize it and open it up too far more people into space more accessible. How they do that. The approaches are taking very widely. They've got different vehicles different visions for their company and ultimately what they wanna to do in the long term but they all share that theme in common for sure do they all work in some capacity with the government. Is that sort of a prerequisite to being able to have a space program to some respect they do and i think wow all. The goal is to have a free standing commercial space industry. That self. sustaining. We're not there yet. And the government in a lot of ways is very much the big driving force and a big customer still for a lot of these companies so spacex for example has contracts from nasa to fly cargo and supplies to the space station to even five astronauts to the space station. So does boeing. Boeing has a contract to fly astronauts to the space station. That sort of subsidizes their programs. In that means a great deal of that blue origin trying to win some of those contracts and has had some recent success and even virgin galactic which is looking more toward the commercial market and flying paying customers the sub orbital space tourism flights also will fly science experiments and work with nasa to be able to do that so to some extent. The government is still involved in these public private partnerships. It seems like to me. The dynamics of these public private partnerships have sort changed over the past few years at least from an outsider's perspective. It seems like now private space travel as gained momentum and some of the more scientific or more experimental stuff things to help us learn more about outer space. And i have at least sort of fall into the wayside in terms of attention. Can you explain why that's happening or if that is even happening as i perceive it yeah. That's a great observation because there has been a shift in the paradigm we've seen some dramatic changes. Take nasa for example. Ten years ago. They were looking at this. Commercial industry and a lot of people within nasa and the leadership was very skeptical of it and it was really controversial when nasa contract it out the service to fly cargo and supplies to the international space station. A lot of people thought. No this is what the government should be doing. We shouldn't be seating this to the private sector and certainly not seeding human spaceflight. I mean flying nastase most precious resource. It's astronauts to the space station. It was inconceivable that they were going to allow that to be turned over to the private sector and then they did although. I strongly support the goals and ideals of commercials access to space to folks who propose such a limited architecture. Do not yet know what they don't know. There is a merit of technical challenges in future yet to be overcome safety considerations which cannot be overlooked compromised as well as a business plan in investors. They will have to satisfy all this will lead to unplanned delays. Which will cost the american taxpayer. Billions of unallocated dollars and lengthen the gap from shuttle retirement. Today we can to the day we can once again access. Low earth orbit leaving us hostage as a nation and the private sector spacex. This show that they can do it and do it. Successfully and so to your other point like that got a lot of attention because companies like sex in blue origin. Their led by the celebrity billionaires. And they do get a lot of attention elon. Musk in particular. His goal was to create more attention for space and space travel to give nasa and the other agencies more money so that we could do more things when we went to the moon in nineteen sixty nine and haven't been back since in a lot of people thought that nasa really lost its mojo and i can see that argument but i would also point out for example that it was nasa that sent a probe to an asteroid. Some two hundred million miles away. It was nasa that most recently landed the curiosity rover on the surface of mars. And oh by the way flew a helicopter ingenuity on mark. Cutout confirmed on mars. Ready to begin speaking of life. This is still doing some big daring good things but now they've got these commercial partners that can help them along the way and a lot of people think it's the marriage between those two entities is growing commercial space sector along with the big government bureaucracy. Which has the backing of the us government. And that's how you really go do big things like going to mars and back to the moon. Is there another american industry. That works that way. Well i think a lot of people look at what's happening in the early days of the commercial space flight and they look back to the early days of commercial aviation or this was a technology that was in large part fueled by the government by world war one for example and needing jet planes to fight in that war and then after the war the postal service using aviation and then going to a commercial paradigm. And then where i flying on. An airplane was very expensive and then the costs come down and people look at these space tourism flights and they're very expensive but the hope is that the cost will come down. It's an imperfect metaphor because in commercial aviation you had the wright brothers fly the first powered flight in nineteen hundred three and by about nineteen fifty five more people in the united states or flying by airplane and commercial aviation than taking the railroad for the first time. So you have this. Massive shift in commercial aviation. We haven't seen that in space in spaces harder. It's more difficult but a lot of people think and hope that we're headed that way. The difference i think is that you have a destination when you take an airplane. You have a destination and aviation but with the space tourism. At least what we've seen from virgin galactic so far for example.

That's not for me to say you mentioned surveillance kind of wanted to talk about you mentioning the Senate like extending the vote for different tools they used for TSA. Yes, and I can't speak I can't speak a whole lot to you that I'm not just really I tend to work on things that are more at like local or state levels that I. I have a lot of knowledge. Come on on that federal level, but what I can say is that as a matter of principle, you know a lot of the time what we will hear as sort of an excuse for the government to reach on, do something like Oh, this is for security. This is to keep you safe and I. Don't like Corona virus you know like. Like like rotavirus mandatory face coverings. Things like that and it's not that I. think that you shouldn't be able like I think. If you want to wear face fast, you should like you know. I have parents that are in the age range for that and so I tried to be cautious when I was staying with them. During quarantine, it left, the city went out to hang. Hang out with them for a while. I try to be careful about that but it's not something that the government should be in debt. You doing so sometimes I think a lot of the unnecessary regulations or ordinances and things that will see is done in the name of keeping US safe right, but it's not. I don't think that it's the government's primary responsibility to keep me safe. Safe I think it's their job to keep me and yes, provide for the common defense as in you know, keep a foreign army from invading, but you shouldn't be You shouldn't be you know like brands if they outlet. This is an extreme example. If they outlawed high heels that I might like roll, roll, my ankle or something like that would be a ridiculous amount of Iraqi. Nothing that ridiculous by we don't.

We would react as Americans then if it wasn't for a safety reason right because there's there's obviously it's gotta be some other things. We may not even know about that. Our laws being passed something like that now would infringe on our rights, quote, unquote and I. I just think we react differently in emergency situations. I think that's what the government can. Maybe take advantage of I. Don't know I L so. I think all this is good I I. I kinda just want to know what it might look like for us. like now because I haven't heard. I, mean we?

You have an authoritarian government that can arbitrarily tell you you can't do your job because we don't like it or because of whatever reason we want to tell you no. Did you process no way to go around this. They say your shutdown as we steal all of your equipment speak to the government to speak to somebody else in the official positions that will also back what I have to say. This is the only democracy in the Middle East you even if you argued the had a justification for this this is clear suppression censorship. It's exactly what they pretend they care about overrun or anywhere else. But they could care less about talking about this boat understand both the US government and the collective both sides of the fake to party mainstream media the raid and the closure were ordered by Israeli Internal Security Minister July Dan now as described by CPI excuse me see PJ. Israeli police quote questioned Palestine. TV reporter Christine Rally and Ron's manager Nizara youns and the director Yabu removes at the at the police station in Jerusalem following these raids. who were released hours later? They actually arrested but these journalists held them interrogated them an for hours and then let them go for what for for having a Palestinian TV station. They're not even trying trying to make claims about what they thought. They were some kind of terrorist activity which is always what they claim. No that's not even happening. They don't think they don't even feel. They need to justify their illegal acts against the Palestinians and even more because the government is more than happy Z.. Sure All's illegal violent West Bank settlements. You're those are fine with us. We don't care and they're running with that. It was really authorities. The closure of the Palestinian TV offices was obviously slammed by an international press freedom watchdog yesterday and should be because it's ridiculous and the CPJ was the committee to Protect Journalists as you can see Israeli forces ray the TV station shut never six months. It's now in a statement. The committee to Protect Journalists urged Israel to quote allow Palestine. TV and I'll ours media services company to reopen their offices to reopen their offices and resume their work was there quote also demanding that Israeli occupation forces quote cease conducting raids on media organizations. You it's just crazy how we can see these kind of things and if you really just try to compare this with any other. Adversary look at these adversarial country. Right make it about Madero in Venezuela I mean regard even if he had an airtight legal justification even if he had evidence that this a group Venezuela was actively creating terrorist activity activity in their country. Or whatever you WanNa say if they did this on any kind of even a flimsy Shell Company for some kind of media outlet there was really just a CIA hub the US media and everybody else would happily scream about. How Madora was censoring journalists? I mean this is what happens when he arrests the people who tried to assassinate him and they say he's arresting officials and journalists may they maybe they were officials journalists. Yeah they also tried to assassinate the president but they don't care about that aspect the nuance minutiae the of the story. Right what he's doing a sensor journalists and we have to care about this but same thing here they could care less as they're actively doing this right in front of us now. It's it's always important to take note that action such as this are rarely condemned by any Israeli official like we see in the US fake political. Michael Divide which to me shows that there's no deviation on the simple willingness to ignore and violate Palestinian rights to give you some pretty strong insight into the general consensus in the Israeli government now says quote Israeli authorities must stop using the police and deligence services to bludgeon local me organizations stations..

"And you tell them how great ball sonoma's Dave's. Like did the check clear shed cleared Boston arose wonderful. And he goes on Brazilian TV and pretend to be a liberal doing it. So it is trick after trick. Anna's? Absolutely, right. We're gonna get into details of how similar their propaganda campaigns are in those countries to what you see here in America. Yes. Yes. So let's talk a little bit about what? Freedom of information requests told us about what's going on in Venezuela. So the intercept rights records of tain through the fr- freedom of information act by author and activist Eva goal injure as well as State Department cables disclosed by whistle blower, Chelsea Manning reveal US policy makers sophisticated effort to use atlas think tanks in a long running campaign to destabilize the reign of Venezuelan leader, Hugo Chavez, again, I give you a get the same caveat that Hugo Chavez is not a good person. What he's doing in? Venezuela is wrong. He is a thorn -tarian now, though Doro who I I'm sorry. Yes. Madeira who follow charges? So you know in in covering the Venezuela aspect of this. We're not trying to defend the current leader of Venezuelan. What's going on? However that is being exploited by business interests here in the United States in order to essentially increase their profits through regime change now through recent investigation, though, recent investigations have shed light on the role of powerful conservative billionaires such as the coke brothers in developing a business friendly version of libertarian thought the atlas network which receives funding from coke foundations has recreated methods honed in the western world for developing countries. Now, this is where you should pay attention. Because what we're seeing here in the United States is definitely happening in these countries. They are infiltrating academic academies. They are working with millennial activists and essentially spreading their propaganda to them and convincing them to rise up against the current regimes. In these Latin American countries as early as nineteen Ninety-Eight said decided Libertad atlas flagship. Think-tank in Caracas Venezuela's capital received regular financial support from the center for international private enterprise who centre for national private enterprise is the US government, and they are funding the think tank, which then supported the opposition to Madero. And now all of a sudden that opposition is leading your cool, Madero and. After the announcement of basically the coup when the lead of the legislature stood up and said, I'm randomly the president. Okay. Guess what happened right afterwards? Donald Trump's government said we are now giving him twenty million dollars to support his efforts to overthrow Madero. So they get money ahead of time. They sneak it in through the so-called think-tanks funded by the US government and wing billionaires in America. And why are they working together? I'll get back to that in a second. And then the afterwards like, well, I guess he's official real leader Venezuela. So we're going to twenty million dollars to help us coup. So that is incredibly important part, though, is is it the US government representing the US people know, it's the US government representing giant corporations. So the coke brothers run. Coke industries. It's one of the largest private corporations in the world, and they have interest in oil as well as many other parts of industry. So they have financial interests in Latin America, and they go fun. Politicians in America. See they already did a coup in America. That was easy. What they did was. They said all right. We'll make bribery legal. We'll call it campaign contributions and independent expenditures. And we'll get the supreme court to say that giving millions in fact, billions of dollars politicians is not bribery. So they criticize Madero now rightfully so for getting control over the supreme court in Venezuela. And then pushing his cronies into setting up a whole new legislature. But I right wing billionaires captured our supreme court took it over and then declared that bribery was legal, and so they capture the US government. Now, they have the largest government in the world, which then takes US taxpayer money your money as spends it in favor of coups and right wing propaganda and so-called think tanks to influence people. And that's another layer of the story that is so intensely. Interesting. They know they have to win the people over. So that is why they go to the media to influence. But you can't let them know that it's Exxon Mobil and coke industries. Because then the people will not be convinced that is why these think tanks or so pernicious and how they flew the media's also amazing..
