ANTIFA Mob Engages in Wild Clashes at University of New Mexico
"Had this campus event brought by our turning point USA chapter last night and the police did a great job. They did the best job they could to deal with these what I believe to be professional agitators and paid protesters. What we saw last night is just another example of exactly what happens when you have an entire generation that lacks meaning they're well over a 150 to 200 protesters, many of whom got violent with riot police that were preventing our students from being able to gain entrance into the event. That's right. They were locking arms blocking the door. They deterred at least 50 of our people. It kind of felt almost like voting on election day in Maricopa County. People just turned away and they said, I don't want to deal with it. They said, yeah, I don't want to deal with this. They saw the bedlam and the agitators, the terrorists really is what they are. Their goal was to cancel the event. Their goal was to not allow us to be able to have an event focus on American exceptionalism, the constitution, freedom and liberty. We might say Charlie, why did you pick the university of New Mexico? Well, we had two other events brought to you by our turning point USA chapter at the university of New Mexico, Tommy lahren, and Ian hayworth, that both had their events canceled and disrupted by these people. And strictly out of principle, I get very angry, and you should, too. When students are not allowed to have a conservative event peacefully on an American college campus. I don't care if it's in New Mexico. I don't care if it's in New Haven. I don't care if it's in Cheyenne, Wyoming. This is America. We're not going to put up with this.
Just for Today, Support USA Soccer!
"Okay, I'm going to admit I'm not a big soccer fan, but I am today USA USA. They got a beat. I ran. And I'm going to say I ran. Did you see this reporter yesterday? Lecturing the USA soccer team? And the brilliant response by the young man who happens to be black, who was willing to defend America? To an Iranian reporter? Are you kidding me? This is a regime that is brutal. They are nothing short of evil. And there's a journalist from Iran who has the audacity to lecture us about what a terrible racist nation we are, you know, because of Black Lives Matter at all. Iran? You can not make this crap up. And so gosh, I hope I hope we beat Iran 20 to nothing today. And again, I don't even like soccer.
Gen. Don Bolduc (Ret.) Discusses New Hampshire Politics
"The granite state general Don bulldog. Welcome back to America first. Well, hello, sir. How are you? And I hope you listen as well. Yeah, we're preparing for Thanksgiving. We're having debates as to which is the best pie I can't decide between apple pie and pecan pie, but we've got bigger issues to discuss today. So I love the granite state I spent every summer there and offered my winters as well. I'm so sad the old man of the mountain fell off the mountain above franconia, more than a decade ago, but will you help us understand because we still can't work out the fetterman success in Pennsylvania, pennsylvanians, what have you done? Can you tell us what happened to you and what the people of New Hampshire did? Well, I think basically what happened was, you know, $56 million spent by senator Hanson on lies. And the lives were targeted based off of abortion, social security and Medicare. I saw them doing that across the nation. Marilyn's 8 by ten, people getting them every day, you know, she did for every one of my commercials, she did 5. And the money playing out the lies, I think, had a lot to do with it. It's fear. It's uncertainty. It created that in the younger generation, created that amongst women in the elderly, and then the fact that the Democrats do very well here in New Hampshire by taking advantage of same day voter registration and mail in balloting.

'Car Coach' Lauren Fix on the Impact of a Potential Rail Strike
"The car coach, Lauren fix. Welcome back to America first. Well, thanks for having me. Lots going on and I'm really, really excited. I was able to get you some safe breaks put on your vehicle. 'cause those drum brakes. Yeah, a little bit spongy. And when it's raining, not so exciting. So I've got disc brakes all round. There is my baby, there is my 66 Mustang. I've got the 2020 as one, a 2020 as well for the everyday stuff. And the new steering wheel, thank you for the recommendations and your contact. Last thing, and I'm not going to touch it, some period correct rims. And then maybe some AC, I might put some AC in because it gets a little hot and sticky here in the swamp. All right. Enough about me and my pony, although I do need people to go to my website and tell me a name. I need a name and not Sally. Okay, I'm not doing the stupid Mustang Sally. I need a female name, go to said gorka dot com and send me a little message that said gorka dot com. All right, you've been sending me some fascinating stuff. First things first, it's not cars. Right now he's allegedly negotiating. But what is the impact going to be if we have a rail strike Lauren in America? Oh, it's going to be huge. Now I know everyone's talking about what you're literally looking at billions of dollars of losses. Because everything goes cars get transported from the manufacturing plant. To the sub area where it then goes to your dealer. So that means good luck getting cars. We can't get them now. That means all the components, tires, metal, just think of everything that you need gets from point a to point B from the West Coast to the east coast, usually by rail, then it's transported to a diesel powered rig and then from there to the final destination in the last mile to your store or to wherever you're going. And that includes like Amazon packages, U.S. Postal Service, FedEx. That new planes, but they also use rail. And without rail, we're in a lot of trouble. And we've been using it for years, plus passengers, Amtrak, which is owned by the government as well. They can't seem to organize the postal service or Amtrak. But the fact is without diesel and there's a shortage of diesel and without the railroad system we have a supply chain that nightmare.
Lord Conrad Black and Sebastian Discuss Former Press Sec. Jen Psaki
"You mentioned, I played you a cut from the current White House, press secretary. She was very, very angry today as Fauci gave his last speech from the podium before he retires. You said, who do you prefer more Jen Psaki or the current incumbent? Well, Jen Psaki was more competent. I mean, this was competent, frankly. But I find her rather an amiable personality where I found Jen Psaki really rather obnoxious. Well, let's talk about Kayleigh McEnany, which is the champion. I thought I thought she was great. Let's talk about the predecessor. Let's talk about Jen Psaki because she's in the news. This is from Fox News dot com. Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday that there wasn't a lot Democrats could have done to change the inflation reality. A federal judge ruled Monday that the former White House press secretary must comply with the subpoena and offer a deposition in a lawsuit that claims the Biden administration colluded with big tech to sense a speech. Now, her response and I must read it to you. This is directly from Jen Psaki to the judge, lord black. Sitting for a deposition would be extremely burdensome for me. I understand that I would need to devote several days to preparing for the deposition, as well as attending the deposition itself. And that would be highly disruptive to both my work and my family. My response on social media or black is, well, that's a great excuse that president Trump can use now that there's a special counsel coming off to him. Your response. That's just nonsense. But self indulgence self serving pompous statements. I mean, she knew when she was took that job on that there was going to be a good deal of controversy because her party. And so addicted to stirring up spurious litigation against its opponents, she might reasonably assume that some of it would come back at them. And as press secretary, she might have to testify and give evidence. And the president current president did her the honor of conferring that important position on her. And she had to know that something like that went with the therapy. So what did she talking about? I
The Threat to Our Liberties Goes Beyond Government
"There's one story that I found super interesting. And if you listen to our podcast or if you listen to kind of what we talk about at turning point USA, we have been repeating the theme that the threats to our freedoms and liberties, it's more than just what the government is doing. It's also what corporate America is doing in collusion with the federal government, regardless of your political views, we should all be able to agree back in the 2020 election it was wrong for the FBI, the Federal Bureau of Investigation to go to Facebook and demand that they censor the Hunter Biden laptop story saying that it was Russian disinformation. You might be the biggest Biden fan in the world here tonight, by the way. Welcome, and I got to ask you, how's that going? But welcome. Thank you for being here tonight. We appreciate that. But that's wrong. You should not be able to use the force of government or the threat of force of government to go to a private actor and be able to suppress stories that could impact an election. It's not sustainable. It's wrong. It'd be wrong if a conservative did it. It's wrong if a liberal does it. Now, one of the places where censorship has just reigned supreme over the last couple of years has been on Twitter. Now, I have a Twitter account still, thankfully, I'm one of the survivors, despite many people that anyone been banned on Twitter here, raise your hand. Okay, well, you might be liberated soon. We'll talk about that in just a second. So, but Twitter is not the biggest social media platform, but I think people misunderstand Twitter. Twitter is an incubator of elite opinion. So people that write columns, people that host podcasts, people that are on television, they go to Twitter to see what the smart kids are thinking to have consensus and then they put it kind of through their communication channels. So set differently, Twitter is not about the amount of people consuming information. It's who is consuming the information. Now, Twitter has by far maybe TikTok more so, but TikTok is pandering to a different generation. But that's a separate issue. Twitter has been the worst when it comes to speech of any private actor the last couple of years. For example, suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story, kicking people off for having heterodox opinions of where the virus came from, which by the way, the virus did come from the Wuhan institute of virology, not from some wet market where they set originally and you could get kicked off Twitter for saying that. Originally, which now actually is factual and true. And so Twitter has been a blunt force object of a censorship regime.
Police: 6 people and assailant dead in Walmart shooting
"Another mass shooting in America, this one last night at a Walmart in Virginia where 7 people, including the shooter, are dead according to police. Police say the shooter went into the Walmart in Chesapeake, Virginia around 10 p.m. and opened fire officer Leo Kaczynski says they're investigating that person's connection with the store. We're looking into the relationships and all that. He says, when police went into Walmart, they found the shooter dead along with the victims and the injured. It's sad, you know, we're a couple of days before the Thanksgiving holiday. I mean, anytime it's a set of it's just a bad time all around. You know, it just for everybody involved. Especially the victims. This is horrible. That audio courtesy wvc, there have been 40 mass killings in the U.S. so far this year, according to a database by the AP USA Today and northeastern university. I'm Julie Walker

Yeah, so the lord gave us this kind of mandate because nobody would do anything that's crazy without hearing from God, but called kingdom to the capitol, which is basically taking the battle, taking the fight of worship prayer, activism to every single U.S. state capitol. So meaning 50 states, 50 capitals and in a post row era, it's increasingly more important that we bring the fight for life for justice for education for everything to the capitals of every state. And so what we're doing is in 2023 and 2024, we're mobilizing the church of America in every single state to gather on the steps of their state capital and it looks like next year we're probably going to do about 26, 27 capitals and then do the remaining capitals in 2024. We're partnering with turning point faith USA, which is going to be really fun and a bunch of amazing Friends. It is going to be the wildest tour.

Never Surrender: What Can We Learn From Churchill?
"New world with all its power and might steps fast to the rescue and the liberation of the old that speech by Winston Churchill was given on June 4th, 1940. Interesting, I never thought about this turning point USA was founded on June 5th, obviously. 82 years later, but interestingly enough, the speech, we shall fight on the beaches by Winston Churchill, was given at a time when if you listen carefully to what he is saying, he's basically saying we are all alone, but our will, the will of the people, the will of our aisle, through blood, toil, tears, and sweat will overcome whatever they throw at us. And this speech, more than anything else, terrified the national socialist Workers Party. This speech given by Winston Churchill was the thing that Hitler and Mussolini and the axis of evil feared the most. What they feared was a battle cry of the will. You see, the only way that the axis was going to win is if the English speaking people, the anglosphere would surrender. And Churchill knew this, Churchill studied them, Churchill was warning for years. About how this axis of evil, they did everything they could to break your resolve. And Churchill, he flushed it out, and he basically said, every square inch that we have on this aisle, we will fight. And that famous line we shall never surrender. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, basically what he's saying is every square inch. Imaginable, we will defend.
The US Soccer Team Changes Its Team Logo to a Rainbow Flag
"USA make a statement. In American English, we would say makes in British English. It's make. When it's a collective, they use the plural verb in England. Anyway, USA makes a statement that there's from the daily mail at the World Cup in Qatar by redesigning their crest with rainbow colors to show solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community. The U.S. Olympic, the U.S., excuse me, soccer team. That the World Cup. Is there any other team in the world that has done that? That will be very interesting to see. Will the French change their flag or their insignia for the team? Will the Brits will the ghanaians? I'll bet not. My dear Friends. This is what I am talking about when I tell you we now are the net exporter of toxic ideas.
MSNBC Fires Race-Baiter Tiffany Cross
"Did you see that the race lady got fired from TV, MSNBC? What are your thoughts? Love your program. I'm trying to get my cousin to start a turning point USA chapter. Well, thank you. You could do that at TPUSA dot com okay, so there is this host that he's talking about the race lady. There's two race ladies actually, Tiffany cross is one of them. And she has been fanning anti white hatred on MSNBC for years. She's had a weekend show for two years. And she's not as well known, nowhere near as popular as joy Reid, but she's worse. She is worse than joy Reid. And so Tiffany cross has been saying the most outrageous outlandish things on television for quite some time. And just getting away with it. And so this kind of goes through this theme, though, that there is a kind of growing genre, it seems. On weekends and, you know, kind of the lesser watched kind of portions of cable television where they just put these unbelievably extreme radical, critical race theorists believing post modernist post structural espousing anchors. And Tiffany crosses one of them. And so Tiffany cross from MSNBC has officially been fired,
Herschel Walker Responds to Barack Obama's Attacks
"A piece of tape here of Barack Obama going after you, at least he admits you were a good running back though. Play cut 58. One of the best running backs of all time. Does that make him the best person to represent you in the USA? Does that make him equip? To weigh in on the critical decisions. About our economy and our foreign policy and our future. Herschel, he's going right after your response. Well, my response is that I built my own confidence, and one of the lords of minority owned two thirds companies in the United States of America. And he called me a celebrity and all he got was just so let me know. So I'm not a celebrity because he never hung out with me. And when you talking about what makes him equipped, but it doesn't see that he was equipped to do too much, though. Not too much happened when he was in office. And right now, not too much is happening with center one item office because there's a reason we have this terrible inflation. We have an open border, a lot of crime has skyrocketed. So they're not doing the right thing. And what makes me quilt because I know how to vote. And I think people saw that during the debate, I knew what I was talking about. He seemed to not understand what they were asking him and he got in a little bit confused because each side not to answer any questions. And I think people thought that that was a difference between he and I
Judge Curbs Actions of Election-Monitoring Group in Arizona
"I want to talk about this continuing fight or legal argument going on in Phoenix in Arizona. About patriots observing drop boxes. Now, the group that is doing this is called clean elections USA. There are a couple of other smaller groups, but this one seems to be the main one. And they seem to be really motivated by the work of crude vote and 2000 mules. And their idea is, hey, we're just going to check out these drop boxes, and they don't they're not just doing this in a kind of informal way people can just show up there. They've created a sort of a database. If you see things that are wrong, they say, listen, upload your information to the database, there are in fact sheriffs around the country who are eager and willing and ready to prosecute, abuses of the law. So their idea is to provide B in a sense responsible citizens and provide information to law enforcement where appropriate. Now, left wing groups, notably one called the association of retired people, but the force behind it are left wing Democrats who are from out of state. And they're working with these local groups to sue clean elections USA and say you can't do this. You can watch the drop boxes in this way. The Biden Justice Department has weighed in with quote serious concerns over voter intimidation. And they decry quote vigilante ballot security efforts. And quote private campaigns to video record voters. Now, first of all, I want to say that all of this can be avoided by having 24 hour surveillance on all drop boxes. Why that is not the case throughout the country I want to know in an era where every parking lot every store, every mall has a surveillance, why not follow the election rules and have surveillance. You wouldn't need to have citizens doing it if the state did its job and did it itself.
Federal judge limits ballot drop box monitoring in Arizona ahead of midterms
"A federal judge is telling armed members of a group monitoring ballot drop boxes in Arizona to back off The judge is telling members of clean elections USA that they have to stay at least 250 feet away from ballot drop boxes following complaints that people wearing masks and carrying guns were intimidating voters The league of women voters of Arizona asked for the temporary restraining order after clean elections USA encouraged people to watch 24 hour ballot boxes in Maricopa County ballot box watchers are also barred from filming or following any one near a ballot box or entrance to a building housing one and they can't shout out to people an attorney for the defendants claims the restrictions placed on the group may make Dropbox voting a little less secure
Democrats Blame Putin for Rising Food Prices
"Food prices rose faster than ever last month headline in USA Today. It was very rare that I read a headline from USA Today. I will admit. It struck me as remarkable as I said it, regardless of what your Thanksgiving dinner includes this month, it's probably going to be more expensive than last year, September's consumer price index showed a 21% annual increase in all foods. Maybe most troubling for home chefs, though, the price of many Thanksgiving Staples rose at the highest annual pace ever. And the Democrats are blaming Putin when the blame is overwhelmingly that of the environmentalist extremists. The fanatics who will destroy civilization in order to protect it.

I bet you your mom and dad, so if Tennessee wins, I'll get a chance to meet you. Okay, so that sounds good. My mom said hello, by the way. Tell her hello. She's a wonderful woman. Thank you very much. Charles is up next in Atlanta. Hello, Charles. Oh, Paul. Appreciate you call. Thank you. I just want to see what you think about this. Everybody's talking about Beyoncé Sanders going to all of them. I think he's going to Georgia ten. Georgia Tech is ACC school. He's connected with 18 feet. I was excited for it. Is that time and time in Atlanta? It was born. Sure. And it's definitely got swag and I think he would do a curb and smart and saving a bit on recruits that area because he was alleged. I am all for Dion and I would love to see him in the SEC. But I think you're right. I think he's if he's going to, if he thinks about this intelligently, which I know he will, I might be careful jumping into the SEC right away. Because auburn, there's no, there's no guarantee at auburn. And I know that he doesn't want to guarantee he thinks he can change the tide, but that would be I still think maybe Florida states in his back mind back of his mind. He may not be in a hurry to go anywhere. You just don't know what somebody else is thinking, but he is definitely part of every conversation. That is for sure. Let's check out Tim, who's up in Texas or down in Texas. Hey, Tim. Paul. Hey there. Good afternoon. I got a question. So I'm going to Aggie. I mean, I've taken my lumps all season long. I've done everything. Sure. But in my stupid, to see good things going on, and that next year, we're going to be something to fight with. The year after we're going to be something to fight with, or am I just delusional and Jim, I would just say, what it is, he's just. No, I don't think you're doing it. I don't think you're delusional. I think you could argue that you could certainly argue with the recruiting and all that. However, I don't think that's a guarantee because Jimbo is still the same coach and he's got a complicated approach. I think the key is how this season ends. It's no better than 7 and 5, and if it gets worse than that, if there are, if there is dissension, if they lose some players to the portal, I think all those are critical factors. And jibo has to hold it together and he has to find some reason for fans to be optimistic because right now they're pretty depressed. We'll take a short break. We have a long way to go here on a Tuesday afternoon and we are coming right back. Thank you for listening to the Paul fine bomb show podcast.

And obviously, I don't say Deion Sanders going a year without coaching his son or Travis owner. I think that's the main reason he'll stay at Jackson state until the graduates remove on. Listen, you may be right. I don't know. There's just something about the Dion to auburn thing that just doesn't feel right. And I think Dion is going to get a big time job. I'm just not certain it's going to be that one. Brian is up next in Birmingham. Hey Brian. Hey, Paul, thanks for having me, man. Thank you. All right. First of all, I would like to say the only way lane keeping will be in the state of Alabama will be at the university of Alabama. He would definitely be the head coach at the same time. The series thing to me is DNA founders being the head of football at Harvard. The things you would do for the culture, the recruits who were bringing in and the height and the bulls, it would definitely be still. Well, hard to find any fault with what you said. Thank you very, very much for the call. Appreciate it. Christian is up next in Florence, Alabama. Hey, Paul, thanks for the phone call. Thank you. Yeah. Have you ever been to the shoals before? Four? Many times. I sure have. I've been all over the shows. Yeah, I've lived here growing up my whole life. I turned 26 on Saturday and hopefully Alabama have a big win on Saturday. But you're right. It is a beautiful area. I love going up there. I've been there countless times. Yeah. Well, hey, I was calling real quick. I just wanted to see, it's been a long time since you've had Nick Saban on your show and I was curious as to what your relationship was like and what it goes in to taking or what goes into getting Nick Saban on your show. We normally talk to him when we were either in town or we talked to him at various events. He's not the type of coach that you just call and say, hey, will you come on on an idle Wednesday? In fact, we don't really even ask him because we have tremendous respect and know his schedule and I think we had him on a couple of months ago. I expect we'll talk to him when we get to touch galusha, which we haven't. But that is not unusual. We don't talk to coach Saban that often. My relationship with him is good. Spend that wave for many, many years. Yeah. Well, hey, thanks for taking my call. I have a picture with you. I've met you at SEC nation before, but thanks for taking my call. Thank you very much. I appreciate it. Paul is up next in Paulson, Alabama. Hey, Paul. Hey, Paul. Hey, Paul. Hey there. I'm the one who works at Lloyd's room strong. Oh, that's right. Well, it's great to hear from you. See, I know I'm a Michigan fan because my mom, my sister, winter. It's nice to be Michigan state and foreign Michigan state pairs got to spend they hit that Michigan player. Daniel business be doing that. Yeah, that was to me, absolutely reprehensible. Yes, it was. Well, Paul, I don't know why they did. Well, there's no explanation for that, Paul. So whoever the Michigan do you cheer for? Just for Michigan. Well, you've had quite a season so far, Paul. Thanks so much for calling Ricky is up next. Hey, Ricky. Hi Paul. Thanks for taking my call. Thank you very much. Quick question. I wanted to ask, I know you're the top four comes out the cost football playoffs. I thought you have Ohio State at one. Tennessee and Georgia in Michigan because all play each other so kind of everything will just work itself out towards the end. I wanted to get your input. The four best teams at the playoffs started right now. Who would be your top four teams and why? Well, it would be the Ohio State Georgia Tennessee and Michigan, but that's so deceptive because of what is left to be played. So I realized that's we're giving a snapshot in time, which is fine. That's all you asked. But ultimately, that's going to take care of itself. I mean, the Ohio State Michigan winner of the Tennessee Georgia winner, Alabama, still figures into it. So at some point, we have got a lot of sorting out to do. Yes, sir. And also, we have two big SEC games course tendency in Georgia and then also beginning of the year, all of us, Alabama fans were probably thinking that the LSU game would probably be a huge W but as you know being Alabama fan and going on the road, especially against Texas and then losing the Tennessee and having so many penalties, I just hope Alabama shows up and doesn't take LSU lightly because Alabama has everything in their hands. They just have to win every Saturday. Hey, thank you for the call. We're heading to a break. We have a lot more to do, including some more guests at the top of the next hour, your phone calls continue here on a Tuesday afternoon. You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast.

"And if you don't have it, you can have one or two 5 stars, but hey, man, you need 5 or ten of them on the team to get to the top of the ladder. We call the SEC. And everybody knows that if you can win the SEC, you can win the national championship. Hey, thanks for taking my call, coach Bond, bob. Andre, thank you. Always a pleasure. Let's check in with Bill and Virginia. Hey Bill. Hi, Paul. I've got what I think is a good reason for coach kip and the stay on easy street for a little while longer and Sabin had a birthday yesterday. So in my mind, if I'm laying kiffin, I stay in old miss where I've got it made I haven't gotten, you know, I'll wait for coach Sabin to retire. And then you can move up to that pressure cooker. He wants a challenge. You know, let's be honest, he's probably not going to have to wait too much longer. The retirement is much closer than it is not going to get further away. It's only going to get closer. So why not just, you know, keep being successful at old miss and then step in. And I know nobody wants to be the guy that follows the guy that if lane kiffin, if he is looking for that kind of challenge and he seems to have through his career stalled out the big challenge and not been scared of it, then what bigger challenge than to follow coach Sabine and Tuscaloosa? Yes. Number one, I don't think lane kiffin would shy away from that. He's already been the southern Cal coach, the Tennessee coach and the Raiders coach. So he gets it. And I think that's another reason as you try to figure out lane kiffin right now. He's already been at two of the premier college football programs in the country. So when you've done that, he likes what he's doing, but he also knows it doesn't have the same Theo. And that's not being disrespectful. It's just being honest. Hey, thanks so much for the call. Wiley, Willie is up next in Knoxville. Hey, Willie. Good to talk to you, Paul. Thank you. Hey, okay. Look, I don't know much, Paul, but I know a few things. Tennessee's got a fast offense. We got these bunch sets, these wide sets that are obviously creating problems for the defense. You see the way we burned Alabama all up and down the field all game. It's clear to me that the corners of the defense. They got to communicate assignments, okay? No one Smith is going to be out freshman starting that safety. Paul, do you think it's actually possible that in Athens, all the barking and hollering from the home crowd might actually hurt the defense more than it hurts our offense that doesn't really seem to need verbal communication anyway. Well, it's a fair point, but I don't think so, because I think when you're, again, I don't know exactly what their techniques are in terms of signaling, but they have to have a variation. So that they've dealt with they've dealt with plenty of noise before. That's fair. Okay. But Paul, look at all the touchdowns that Hyatt score and it's like more than half of them he's just jogging in the end zone. Completely wide open. Kentucky, did they not game plan at all? I don't understand that game at all. And the one thing that I keep pointing to is that fourth down play early in the game when the Kentucky defense was not prepared. I remember what Tennessee ran the hurry up. I mean, that's an excusable. And ultimately, that's on Mark stoops because that's his side of the ball. Let's check out Randy next in Georgia. Hey, Randy. Getting here, Randy. So I will try Victor in Atlanta. Hey, Victor. Hey, what's going on? Hey there. I think liberty might have had a little clue to firing going on. They just signed a huge freeze to extension and I'm just thinking like, wait a minute, they just signed to extension and then all these guys get fired. You remember a day or two later, but anyway, I don't think, you know, the thing about going to all of them, man. I mean, coming there as a coach, you got to be Alabama, LSU takes us in a year just to get to the championship game. It's going to be tough for anybody. Well, remember something too. And you're right. Auburn has arguably the most difficult schedule every year because they have Alabama and then Georgia is their crossover. You can't get any more difficult than those two. Exactly. That is all going to change here in two years when Texas and Oklahoma and so what currently stands as your opponents very likely changes. Now, they'll get they'll definitely get Alabama as a regular, but they may not get Georgia though. Yeah. I don't know, man. It'd be tough for anybody to go down to album. Anybody. I don't know about you, but it's amazing what 8 or $10 million will do to your disposition. You know, you signed for a couple 100,000. I mean, that's been going to take to buy him out, but you know, I guess Jimbo is glad he didn't go to album because they probably would have fired him by Mary. He paid the money. Yeah, Jimbo, why did that job about ten years ago and then back to, hey, thank you very much for the call. I appreciate it. Pat is up next. Hey pat, good afternoon. Hey, Paul. Thanks. I sure hope my singing yesterday didn't get you put off the TV today. That's exactly what happened. I'm sorry. Listen, I heard Jim Harbaugh this morning and hey launch criminal charges filed, but if my memory serves me right, they've got a common tunnel at the big house and that may be unique in the power 5 conference. I don't know if it is, but what did they expect was going to happen when after a football game, both teams were going through the same tunnel at the same time to exit the field? Huh? Yeah, I would agree. I don't think, and even though I thought harbo made a compelling argument, I don't think we're going to end up with criminal charges. I don't either. On another subject real quick. Oh, baby. I understand. I'm sorry, go ahead. So there could be there could be a civil suit, but not a criminal suit. Absolutely. On another subject, very quickly, I understand that SEC network and game day are going to be an Athens on Saturday as and are y'all going to flip a coin to see who gets Myers quadrangle? No, I don't think there's ever a coin flip. They go wherever they want. Do you have an idea where y'all might set up? Yeah, it would be the same thing happened last year. I think it was for the Kentucky game. We ended up where were we? We were thinking there's a library. Well, yeah, and I was going to suggest the north campus library, which is the main library for the entire campus is on a fantastic tree covered quadrangle that goes all the way to the arch and broad street in Athens. And that would be a fantastic place for one of the two of you. Yeah, we have done that. I think we've been there twice. And I have not seen it yet, but I'm almost positive. That's where we will be. In fact, I will tell you this. I've done game day admires I've done probably four or 5 SEC nations. I prefer the other spot. Wow. Okay. Any particular reason? Yeah, well, I just think it's a little closer to the action.

"That if there was somebody out there that they wanted, it might expedite, but it just doesn't, I mean, I don't know what their, I don't know what their power brokers are thinking, but it just doesn't seem like there's anyone knocking on the door that probably helps Jimbo Fisher, at least for now. Does it not? I think that's probably true. I think the other thing that probably helps Jimbo a little bit is is athletics director ros Björk is the one who engineered this contract extension, this raise, this increased buyout. If you got an AD in that share who's not responsible for this mess, I think there might be some more motivation from that seat to say adding causes mess this, I don't want this problem. I want to get my person in there. Now, obviously, Jimbo Fisher was hired by Ross Felix predecessor and Scott Woodward, but Woodward had left by the time that extension came around. So this is for all intents and purposes. This is Ross George deal now. And I think there's probably some incentive there. To try to give this every opportunity to get it right, even though all indications are that the Texas a and M is not close to getting this right with Jimbo Fisher. Let's move to the game of the century, seems like we had one a few weeks ago. And we've got another one coming up this weekend. You covered Tennessee for a while. You've watched the trials and tribulations and right now the glory of that program. Frame this game Saturday and what it means. Initially, Paul, I said to someone recently, I said this is the biggest game since and then I caught myself and said, I guess it's the biggest game since they played Alabama a few weeks ago. But I actually think the stakes the more I thought about it, it's not the same. Alabama was a chance to vanquish this rival that had beat them 15 times in a row and in just this streak of miserable Ness. Against Nick Saban's crew, now though, that they've done that, this is different stakes. This is college football playoff type stuff. This is getting to Atlanta types. Everything became real once Tennessee beat Alabama. And so I do think this game has an even higher bar than that Alabama game because of what is on the line here. This is the chance to punch your ticket to Atlanta. This is the chance to be number one in the polls and really if Tennessee wins this game and goes undefeated going into the SEC championship, I think even a lost there. It would be like the Georgia situation last year. I think you're still very, very likely in the college football playoff, some of that depends on what happens elsewhere. But I think you put yourself in a great shape to make the playoff winning this game. I think really to find a comparable poll and you probably have a better frame of reference on this than I do. But I think you probably have to go back to the 2001 SEC championship. It was where Tennessee would have been playing for another BCS national title, had they won that game, but of course they lost it and didn't play for the BCS title. I do think this is probably for this program. This might be the biggest game since that, and that's been over 20 years from now. Yeah. That was huge. And as has been pointed out many times since, and I'm sure by you, that was when the, even though the program had some success after that, it never quite got back to that level. Blake always great to hear from you. Thanks so much. We will see you soon. Okay, it sounds good. Thanks, Paul. Meyer one of the best columnists in the country from USA Today and we take a short break. Your phone calls are around the corner. You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. We welcome you back here on a Tuesday and Andre is up next in Atlanta. How are you doing? Hey there, Andre. Listen, this is the SEC. This is big boy ball. Now I'm an LSU fan, but now you're the hand, you're the coach. You're the coach in candidate coach Bond Bond. And do you want to live in the pressure cooker of auburn or do you want to live on easy street at old myth? Oh, miss Douglas offered a type of pressure that they're going to put on you down in all of Alabama. Which one would you take if you were the candidate coach? I would take the pressure cooker because that's just the way I roll. I don't want easy straight when you're as competitive as lane kiffin. Let me ask you this to sealing for old myths. We know what the ceiling is for auburn because they can win the national championship. What do you say to ceiling is for old miss coach? I think oldness, the ceiling is where they are right now. Sugar bowl last year, maybe a run, maybe a shot at getting in the SEC game if something goes their way. But I think it's too difficult year in year out. I agree with you. I'm from Mississippi. I'm from vicksburg. But that's just the way it is. This is big boy ball. This is not X's and O this is Jim is and Joe. This thing falls down to recruiting. And if you're not recruiting inside of the top ten every year, you're not going to reach the top of the line and we're called the SEC championship. In Andre.

Also on the eve, not the eve, hours before the first CFP ranking comes out. That is exactly four hours from now who will be number one will be Tennessee, Georgia, could Ohio State sneak in there. A lot of conversation about that, although I think conventional wisdom would indicate it doesn't really matter who number one is this week because after Saturday, the winner in Athens will clearly be the number one team in the country. We will take your phone calls at 855-242-7285 Brian has issued a statement. Thanking auburn. Meanwhile, the coaching searches on the speculation running rampant. And that's where we begin with our first guest this afternoon. He is Blake toppmeyer from USA Today. He's covered Tennessee will certainly want to get his thoughts on that as well. But Blake, of course, writes now for USA Today. Blake, thanks for the time. Great to have you on, and I know it's almost cliche to talk about what happened yesterday at auburn. I think we all know why that happened, but I'm curious as we say hello to you. Where do you think auburn goes next? Well, I think they go with someone who is the opposite of the mandate. They just parted with, which is so many times how coach have schools approach coaching searches, right? If they had to fire one guy, they want to hire the opposite of that person. I mean, just look at LSU last year, right? They couldn't have hired a more polar opposite from head auger on than what Brian Kelly is. So in this case, you had an Idaho outsider who didn't work. And so I look for someone who is kind of cut from the cloth who has spent time in the south in the SEC and that's why I think two names that should top this list are lane kiffin and Hugh for ease. I mean, I know lane kiffin is kind of a southern transplant, but he's now spent time at Tennessee on this Alabama. I mean, he's kind of an adopted member of the SEC. My question with lane is, is he content with all this? Or is he itching to move on somewhere else? And his auburn stepping up to make that move. I think we all know Hugh freeze would say yes, if auburn makes the offer. Yeah, he just did. When you said that, he said, I'll take it Blake. Lane seems to be the hot name down at auburn. I was talking to friends down there and everyone seems to be enamored with him. Oh, miss fans bristle yesterday when we suggested that he could end up there. Can you explain, as you look at this thing a little bit from a higher altitude than maybe a fan, why lane kiffin would leave all this for auburn. Well, I think, I mean, auburn historically has a higher ceiling, right? I mean, I think there's arguments to stay at old miss, certainly. I mean, if you just look at where the programs are now, obviously, lane has owned this rolling. And when this playoff expands to 12 teams, lane and all myths can make the playoffs. If he wants to make the playoffs and have a nice long tenured and for someone to build a statue of him outside the stadium, he can stay at old mess for a long, long time. But from a grander scheme, I think auburn has a higher ceiling. I think NIL, the platform at auburn is bigger. I think the recruiting platform at auburn is generally bigger. We heard lane say earlier this season kind of bemoaning the fan support in the stands about running out of the tunnel at halftime and used lane's words. It looked like a high school game when he looked up in the stands. Well, you don't run into that issue at auburn. As bad as the team might have been at times with Brian there. I don't think he ever bemoaned a lack of enthusiasm in the stands. So it's a bigger name program. It just is, and I think we've seen at times lane has been attracted by the shiny object in the bright lights. I do think he's a bit of a change man. At this point, I do think he probably looks at auburn and sees, boy, do I want to do I want to step into this, you know, look at what happened to the last guy. I mean, he's the king of the Oxford pond. Nobody's going to tell lane kiffin what to do at old miss. He's the king of that little universe. I think life would be a little bit different at auburn than he's just got to decide whether that's something he wants to jump into. Mike caught Meyer with USA Today joining us. Blake, we're now way past the midpoint of the season. We're heading, we're in November. Jimbo Fisher has incurred his 5th loss. And most people who talk about this automatically say, hey, well, nothing's going to happen. He's good. He's safe. He just needs to make some coaching changes, blah, blah, blah. That may be exactly right. It sounds somewhat prosaic, but what do you think? And how do you describe the mess that he has created for himself out there? Obviously, the buyout is huge fall, but as we know, every time we've encountered these scenarios where we've said, ah, the bias too big. They're not really going to fire him. Every time the schools do it. And so this would blow out of the water, the previous bar for buyouts. I think that might still be the 21 plus million that auburn paid to fire Gus miles on. I mean, this would quadruple that. The thing that people have to remember though with Jimbo is, not all of that 87 million is due on day one. I think it's like 25% of it is due like in the first couple months after firing him. So that's still a lot of money, right? 25% of 87 million is a good chunk of chunk of change. You'd have to have ready up front. But then you could kind of treat it like the Bobby bonilla situation and you just continue to pay on him from now to the end of eternity. I do think that that changes things a little bit and makes this a different situation than if you had to fork over 87 million to the guy on the day you fired him. I still think the buyout obviously affords him some protection. I think it's the only reason right now where we're acting as this could and probably will extend into next season. I mean, without that buyout without that guaranteed contract, I think we're having a very different conversation today. We might be talking about who the coaching candidates are at Texas a and M. I do think he survives in the next season, but it's not with full certainty that I say that and the reason I say that is because we know when push comes to shove more times than not gets passed enough that the money rolls in, the buyout is paid, and if there's one thing about Texas a and M, it is a revenue and fundraising behemoth, it's the type of school that could cover an exorbitant type of buyout like this. It also seems
Poll: More Black & Hispanic Voters Lean Republican
"So some brand new polling data out from USA Today, this is the USA Today Suffolk university poll, and again, you can't, you can't take these that face value, but you can glean some information here from this polling data. Now, in the last midterm elections, that was back in 2018. Democrats destroyed Republicans among black voters 92% of the black vote. Republicans only garnered about 6% of the black vote. Democrats also in that same election cycle, they defeated Republicans among Hispanic voters 72% to 25%. I mean, it was pretty overwhelming. And that was the data that Pew Research came up with. But now things are changing, and according to this USA Today, Suffolk university poll. 40% of Hispanics and 21% of blacks are now backing Republican candidates. That is a massive shift. We're talking about huge numbers. Black support get this 15 points from 6% in the last midterms to 21% now. Hispanic support jumping 15 points to 40%. That's phenomenal. And again, the numbers are going to fluctuate. No doubt about that. We've still got 7 days to go. A lot can happen in those 7 days, but if these numbers hold, you are looking at a Republican tsunami on election day.

Hey, Paul. You know, a lot of folks are putting this narrative out there that the sky is falling at Clemson because davo has a bit of an old school view about how things should be conducted. And the reality is that the loyalty that he displays for his players. I mean, think about the phrase that he's used, not transfer portal is my locker room. Well, they're all going after these four and 5 star players to come in and play for them. And what does each form 5 star player want? They want play in time. Most of them know that they're never guaranteed playing time. They've got to come in and develop and earn that spot. Well, with dabo, you're going to have that opportunity to develop and earn that spot on the field and not get replaced via the transfer portal overnight by another athlete. I mean, imagine you're Trey Sanders at Alabama or one of these other guys that's been putting in a year or two or three in that program thinking this is going to be my year, never mind. We're going to bring in the ACC's leading rusher and now I've got to compete with this guy who's got four years, three, four years of experience on a division one shield. That's a tremendous amount of security for a high school kid who's trying to pick a program to go to and spend his time putting in that the blood sweat and tears that these guys put in. Yeah, that's really a fair point. Hey, thank you very, very much. I really appreciate that. Doctor Mel is up next. Hey, Paul, how are you today? We are doing great. Thank you. All right, yeah. I just want to thank you for the job. You and Mark and the rest of the guys doing it needs to be some kind of way, I don't know a lot about journalism where we can evoke for you to receive some kind of war as the young lady from hospital of Luther King on the earth today. The chance of me being honored by anyone is very low, but I have done something rather extraordinary throughout my career, I've managed to avoid being honored at almost every turn. Well, but you know, there comes a time, but the program is really enjoyable. My audience is saying what you just said means more to all of us here than some organization saying, giving us an award. So our obligation is to the people that listen and watch this show, not to some organization where you got a bunch of starchy, stodgy, old, bitter people who decide who gets the awards and who doesn't. Does that sound absolutely sounding Randy? Bitter at all. But let me assure you. What's the word? I'm being completely honest here. If asked, I would not accept. Yes. I have one proposal for you. As you know, Richard and both had other careers alone with his law practice and my medicine. So this is what I want to propose, Richard and I being from the sports council, we want to represent you in your new NIL. And we guarantee you. I guarantee you, we'll never give you a reason to want to enter into a transport portal, we will treat you right lambda would be well. And do you make our dough? Do you remember when Richard was a sports agent? Yes, sir, I do. Yes, sir, I do. I covered his first client and it was a big one too. I bet Richard, it's almost 40 years ago, Richard probably doesn't even remember it. He has a future hanging in his office. But that was one of my reasons, Paul for taking the law sabbatical from the healthcare for you was the ten law school where mid Richard and course I was a sports counselor for about 15 years and I didn't call myself an age and I was a counselor in my main motivation was to help the young people develop a career in teach them right from wrong and how to live a live of good morality on and off the field. You know what's funny, I remember and I'm not going to mention his name because he's dead. But I got to be friendly with a guy about 25, 30 years ago, who was the most among the two or three most notorious scumbags who ever was a sports agent. I think he went to jail. And I met him. After he had come out of federal prison and of course he had become a minister by then. My goodness. I think he's probably the only person that's ever done that before. But it was really interesting to hear his perspective on what led him down that path. My goodness, my goodness. Well, Paul, what do you think the NIL is going to end point do you think we'll see some kind of change or rules of regulation? I think it's fine for the players, but the institutions that seem to be such a war zone and then so much.

"It was an awkward question about the LA shoe rumors, and he just went ahead and addressed it. And boldly said, we're not losing Jimbo Fisher. And then Jimbo addresser rumors, and then Jimbo addressing the lane kiffin situation after the season. I mean, what am I missing here? I mean, this school just is making it even more difficult for outsiders to look inwardly at them without wondering what in the world's going on out there. Yeah, perhaps they just relish being the villain ball. I don't know. Here recently you had lane kiss and saying that it's not an equal playing field around the country. I mean, no, it's not. College football has never been and I think, you know, with the NIL situation, the way that it is, I think, a program like Texas a and M stands to benefit from that, maybe more so than others. And I think we're seeing that a little bit firsthand. And if that makes Jimbo a villain if that makes a and M a villain, so be it. I guess where it well and improve people wrong. I mean, right now, the narrative around a and M is what it's been the last few years. It's like they're the king of this time of year. They're the king of the off season height, but so many times they fail to live up to that hype in the fall. I think 2020 was obviously an exception there. They were knocking on the door, the college football playoff in one game away. But that's been the exception, not the rule at a and M is that the hype is there in April and May and then come November. We're often talking about what could have been at a and M and oftentimes what it is is not is not living up to the expectations. For their handsomely paid coach and I think a program that is recruiting as if it, as if it does have a higher level that it will reach. Should a and M be concerned like looking down the road and I know Texas has become a punching bag lately. And that's fine. They deserve to be one, but at some point they'll get it right in Austin. And here they come, they're depending on your favorite bookmaker, two or three years away from being in the SEC. Do you think some of this is just laying the groundwork to try to defend Texas against Texas when they get into the SEC? Well, I think they should be concerned about that. I don't know that they shouldn't be fearful of it. I think just like when a and M received a bit of a bump in recruiting when they came into the SEC, it was an advantage. It was a chip they could play. Within state prospects that Texas couldn't. Now, Texas gets that advantage, right? I mean, I think they can get that same catapult, that same boost is what a and M had. I mean, I think when a and M came to the league, there was this narrative of like, oh, they don't know what they're getting into here. And then lo and behold, a and M hit the ground running and busted through the doors of the SEC like it was like it was no problem, right? And I do think that there's the possibility for Texas to do that. I think joining the SEC can be an advantage for them, having said that, a and M is going to have a ten year head start on this thing. And I think a and M yes, there are fair criticisms about Jimbo, but I think a and M has the better coach. And just because Texas is coming in doesn't mean that a and M has to lose its stranglehold that it's gaining in recruiting, especially like I said, now that NIL dollars can influence an athlete's decision, whether they're supposed to on the high school recruiting trail or not. I think we all know that those dollars can influence decisions. I think that works great for a and M I think it also works pretty well for Texas. And so I don't know that it's a zero sum game. I think Texas can make up ground once it joins the SEC, but I don't think that means that a and M has to regress either. Always great to have Blake top Meyer from USA Today on with us.

"From two cities in Ukraine Ukraine has quickly fallen apart today Ukrainian leaders say Russia has kept up its shelling despite promises to pause It comes with the invasion now well into its second week and amid warnings that things could get even worse I broke it down with USA Today and Dow Jones columnist Paul brandis The ceasefire that was announced in two areas apparently has not lasted We're talking about areas that the Russians have essentially taking over They're trying to clear these places out make it easier for them to impose this rule that Putin apparently wants elsewhere there are these continued reports of the shelling of schools apartment buildings and more and look anyone who knows Russia anyone who knows the way Putin operates understands that this is just another page from his typical playbook and Chechnya he leveled cities in Syria He bombed schools the bombed hospitals This is just a campaign in Ukraine of unrelenting indiscriminate terror against innocent civilians We have to call it exactly what it is So again these Ukrainians are fleeing That's fine with him It's clearing these places out Meantime there have been intelligence reports in Europe to the effect that Russia is now planning public executions of Ukrainian officials and resistance fighters So this could in fact get much worse Do you think these calls for the U.S. to end imports of Russian oil will go anywhere and also that would still do nothing about European imports of Russian natural gas right Well this is largely symbolic I think we import about 90,000 barrels of oil a day now from Russia easily replaceable We bring in about 4 million barrels a day from Canada For example the problem of Europeans getting energy from Russia continues of course I mean the Germans have done this quick one 80 Nord stream is dead or building these two liquid natural gas ports quickly It's going to take time to bring these things online So for the short term there is this continued European dependency on Russia in terms of us cutting off Russian oil easy to do but it's really not going to impact the Russians that much thought simply sell it to China and to other places that are hungry for it Once again that's analysis from USA Today in Dow Jones columnist Paul brandis on Skype Coming up how did D.C. put on an impressive show and support of Ukraine this week It's ten 13 Have you heard about.

"The edge of the city Meanwhile the U.S. and its allies have rolled out still more sanctions and for the first time Russian president Vladimir Putin is being personally targeted Let's go deeper now with Paul brandis who worked for 5 years in Moscow and is currently a columnist for USA Today and Dow Jones market watch He's also the author of several books on the presidency and has been following this invasion every step of the way Paul good morning do you think these sanctions will have a real effect or do they not go far enough as some critics have said Well the question John is how does all this look 6 months where maybe a year from now I mean the fact is sanctions are not for example Western Europe needs energy and the degree to which this Russian gas can be replaced is a critical question they can't go without energy for very long it has to be replaced One thing is that we can certainly help our European allies by expanding production here but consider that amid calls this week for boosting U.S. energy exports to Europe the Biden administration has paused new leases on fossil fuel drilling for example these environmental concerns are certainly understandable but the net effect is that it's bumping up against the need to quickly wean Europe off of this Russian energy It's a real dilemma The other thing that could undercut these sanctions again over the long run is the China effect It's no coincidence that in the past few months in the run up to this war China and Russia have significantly deepened their economic ties China now buys more oil from Russia than from Saudi Arabia for instance So this is all one giant global Rubik's Cube so we'll see how all this plays out on the paper these sanctions look very tough though You wrote in a column this week that the U.S. and its allies misread Putin for years how so Well I think the most revealing thing about Putin has ever said was maybe I think 14 15 years ago when he commented that the collapse of the Soviet Union the loss of the Soviet empire in 1991 was in his term the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the 20th century the greatest catastrophe ever not World War II when the Soviets lost maybe 25 million people not the horrors of Stalin which cost millions more not the Holocaust No the greatest catastrophe in Putin's mind was the peaceful disillusion of the Soviet Union which gave tens of millions their first taste of freedom What a stunning comet That he thinks is the greatest catastrophe I think that reveals more about his true mindset than anything else I think a lot of folks in the west either weren't paying attention or just didn't believe that kind of comment All right thank you Paul Once again that's analysis from USA Today and Dow Jones columnist Paul brandis on Skype It's 8 14 Imagine selling.

"That makes it a good time to talk about the president's and The White House and Paul brandis writes for USA Today in Dow Jones but he's also a presidential historian giving lecturers at presidential libraries and he's also the author of several books including under this roof and he joins us now and Paul tell us something about The White House that most people just don't know You know one thing that people usually don't know about The White House concerns the Lincoln bedroom they always think man that's where Lincoln slept Well that is not true Lincoln bedroom which is on the second floor of The White House of course the part that you never get to see on the tours That was actually Lincoln's office when he was president that's where he worked each day that's where he issued his famous Emancipation proclamation which was really just an executive order That was his office He swept down the hall in the same bedroom where most presidents sleep even Joe Biden today It wasn't really made into what we now know as the Lincoln bedroom until The White House was completely gutted and renovated during the Truman years and Truman was a big Lincoln fan as a lot of presidents are and he devoted that room to mister Lincoln called it the Lincoln bedroom so really only dates back to about 1950 Paul those of us who have been in Washington for a while always ask this question Why would you want to be president You say that some presidents love being president and others hated it You know I always think one of the best things about being president is that you get to be an ex president I mean there's nothing better than that but you're right I mean some presidents loved being president Teddy Roosevelt just loved every minute of it just to full of energy and excitement Bill Clinton I think loved it except for that impeachment part I suppose And then you have some presidents who really didn't like it at all John Quincy Adams famously said that he hated every minute of it called the presidency the most miserable four years of his life The irony here is that presidents you know you work like the dog to get to The White House only to learn as Adams did that it could be a pretty miserable place to be and four years just under the spotlight and people criticizing you in hanging you in effigy and all that So as some have loved it some not so much One final question before you go We spend a lot of time saying this president has spent time at his ranch This president has spent time golfing Now it's Biden and Delaware You say one president worked harder than the rest and one worked less who were they Well the one who worked the most was probably James Polk who is president between 1845 and 49 easily the hardest worker I think at the four years he was president he took off just a handful of days barely left The White House but there's a difference between working hard and working smart poked it everything didn't delegate anything Anyone wrote his own speeches answers his own mail managed everyone with this ridiculous degree of granularity and then on the other hand the guy who put in the fewest hours probably Calvin Coolidge I mean he slept 11 or 12 hours a night plus long naps in the afternoon I think the country was booming in the 1920s and he was largely a hands off guy So a very different extremes Well Brennan presidential historian this time Paul thanks for being with us Sports is next on TOP.

"USA Today which used to be a respectable publication came out with an article recently and the title was that they believe that pedophiles are misunderstood. They wrote an entire article, by the way, on the day of child sex trafficking awareness day. Let's just be clear. The day that you're supposed to talk about child sex trafficking, they say that pedophiles are misunderstood. Could you imagine if USA Today on Martin Luther King Jr. day said that racists were misunderstood? Or on Juneteenth? USA Today was lamb blasted. This is on the blaze dot com for publishing an article framing pedophilia as misunderstood. Swift backlash caused the publication to delete tweets promoting the article, which was originally titled quote when the public keeps getting wrong about pedophilia. The complicated research behind pedophilia. Continued by saying, pedophilia is viewed as among the most horrifying social ills. But scientists who study the sexual disorder say that it is also among the miss most misunderstood. When most of the public thinks a pedophilia they assume it's synonymous with child abuse. USA Today researcher says, it's actually when we study pedophilia, we say that term describes an attraction, not an action, and use it interchangeably with abuse that fuels misperceptions. USA Today was forced to delete their Twitter thread. Yeah, I don't know if USA Today was reading the room correctly. But platforming like pro pedophile arguments, don't think the country's there. Hopefully not yet. USA Today tweeted out, quote, we think we know what a pedophile is. There's a lot of misunderstanding. Or there's a lot we're misunderstanding. USA Today said, quote, a pedophile is an adult who is sexually attracted to children, but not all pedophiles abuse kids, and some whose secretion abuse kids are not pedophiles.

And when did they become such a left wing Cook site, which they are. And their fact checking site. The USA Today is totally corrupt. They got caught on the Biden Watch incident because they're fact checker immediately put up a whole fact check. He never looked at his watch during the ceremony. This is not true. It's all a myth. Well, it was true. And everybody went back and got the footage. The video, the photographs, their all time stamped, and everybody examined the video and everything. Yeah, he did. Look at his watch 34 times. In fact, each time a casket would come off. He looked at his watch. So the fact checker for the USA today got caught. The whole thing is corrupt Media won't cover anything that you need to know. You know, Uh, operation changed. The subject wouldn't work if it wasn't in collusion with the media. Do you see the Sunday shows yesterday? Unbelievable. The opening point. They really are pointless. You don't get anything out of them. Climate change. What about that beheading in America? Climate change how they're gonna be more hurricanes that kind of stuff we have with us. You want to hear about these beheadings? You want to hear about the awful things in Afghanistan? And what do they have exclusive interview with Senator Tom Cotton exclusive? Nobody else asked him exclusive interview. And, uh, it's only going to get worse. You know, they've reopened the airport. In the Kabul. How do you say it's a capital Kabul, Kabul. They've reopened the airport. With no radar. O dismantled all radar in the airport. Now, why would you do that Military stuff I can get in and out without radar obviously have to be able to do that. But the civilian flights can take off very easily without Radar. So if airlines were trying to fly people out very tough to do without any radar, so they obviously are trying to hold people there. We're getting reports every second of slaughtering of shootings.

The delta variant of numbers going up up up, you know, they started going down about three days ago. They've been dropping. Have you heard any coverage in that? I don't know. So they've been dropping for a few days. No coverage. One thing about that Delta variant. We can track it in every other country has been to other countries, first from India to Europe to England to France wherever this Delta variant hits It spikes the numbers up for about eight weeks, and then they stopped dropping as and as I've been telling you all along the way the delta variant works, it will run through the unvaccinated community and get them all. And then then you're done. Then they're all vaccinated with nature's vaccine. So it goes about two months and it looks like we're at the eight week point and it's starting to drop in a lot of places, but you can see a little up and down. But the overall trend now will be down.
